We are decidedly opposed to drugs and to advertised

humanity. A fact bat come to our knowledge that

benefit of those ladle whoa delicate health makes it
necessary to prevent any Increase of family.
About twelve months after marriage, a lady of our ac
quaintance gave blrtb to daughter, but her sufferings
were so great that her physician despaired of her recov
ery. This mad her dread the very tboughtsof again be
coming a mother. She tried every thing to prevent
repetition of her sufferings, but without succeeding. Two
yean after marriage th wa again confined, but her auf-'
faring! were so great that the child died, and her own life
was despaired of. she wts told by her family physician
that if she had any more children he feared her fife would
be the forfeit. Aa all the remedies sh had tried before
had failed, sh applied to the Botanio Physician, Dr..

States and people of the South to
return to a Union without a Constitu

repeated and most aggravated exac

yourselves, and treasonable to your
posterity, to surrender these liberties
and rights to the creatures whom your
own breath created and can destroy.

The Liberty of Great Britain.
The following is a specimen para
graph of a very mean and contempt!
biy raise articlo which recently ap
peared in the Dayton (O.) Journal.
It says :
' 'I found myself first a freeman
when on British soil,' says Vallnn-
dighani in his address. Any Irishman
could tell hi.n that he lies. Any
Englishman could tell him that the
exercise in Britain of a tenth part ol
the freedom with which he- assailed
his own country would have caused
him to be hung as high as Llaman.
The traitor boasts, too, that he is
under the ptotection of the British
lag.' Americans understand that
this is by no means the first time that
the British flag has offered protection
to their enemies. Benedict Arnold
boaBted that be was protected by the
British nag."
' We pity either tho ignorance or the
malignacy .which could indite snch
silly language. "Every Irishman,"
ana, iu audition, every other man,
knows that such Irishmen as Burke
and Barre in our Eevolution.and such
Englishmen as the elder and the
younger ritt, . opposed the .British
Government in its efforts to reduce
the Americas rebels to its allegiance.

Our American Revolutionary patriots
were always free and frank to ack
nowledge the liberality of the Eng
lish common law, and they dopted it
in this conntry as the best specimen
of equity extant. It is the glory of
England, and every, American of in
telligence has been prompt to recog
nize it, that she aiwayi afforded a sale
and secure assylutn to the unfortnnato
friends of liberty in continental Eu
rope. There have rosided Kossuth,
Mazzini, Ledru llollin and Victdr
Hugo; they have fed : also exiled
Kings and Princes like Louis Philip

What They Did Not Tell.
We notice that a number of the
Abolition clergy have preached poli
tical sermons on the late bloody riota
in New York. They did not tell their
hearers, as it wus probably useless,
tbey being aware of the fact, that a
few years ago they (the Abolition
clergy alluded to) had preached ser
mons in favor of mobs aud resibtauca
to law. They had abetted and en
couraged the shooting of officers and
others who attempted to execute tha
ugitive stave Law. They made mar
tyrs and saints of John Brown and
his detestable crew. . They eulogized
the slayers of Bachelor, one of tho
poor guard in Boston of the negro
fugitive Sims. They were the great
champions of the New York Jerry
rescuers at Syracuse, and wera tho
Christian mob champions in Pennsyl
vania. They were the champions of
UjoiIi, the Abolitiouist, in Wisconsin.,
Witn i ii the last two years they have'
Oik-ii delig'itod at the 'mobbing of
Democratic editors and the destruc
tion of Democratic papers by mob
violence. They .actually preached
sermons of exultation about the crush
iug out of those they denounced as
"Copperheads" in the North in that
manner. The political clergy are, for
the first time, right on tha mob ques
tion, and we hope they will continue
