Resolved, That the officers and soh!ir
who'have carried the arms of their country
into Mexieo, have crowned it with imper
ishable glory. Their unconquerable courr
age, their daring enterprise, their unfalter
ing perseverance and foititude when as
sailed on all sides by innumerable foes, and
that more formidable enemy the diseases
of the climate exalt their devoted patriot

eternal principles of equal rights, for which
their Lafatette and our Washington
fought side by side, in the struggle for our
own national independence; and we would
especially convey to them and to the whole
people of France, our earnest wishes for
the consolidation of their liberties, through
the wisdom that shall guide their councils,
on the basis of a democratic constitution,
not derived from the grants or concessions
of kings or dynasties, but originating from
the only true source of political power rec
ognized in the states of this Union; the in
herent and inalienable right of the people,
in ineir sovereign capacity, to mace and to
amend their forms of government in such

Resolved, That in the recent develop
ment of this grand political truth, of the
sovereignty of the people and their capaci
ty and power for self government, which is
prostrating thrones and erecting republics
on the ruins of despotism in the old world,
we feel that a high and sacred duty is de
volved, with increased responsibility upon
the democratic party of this country, as the
party of the people, to sustain and advance
among us constitutional liberty equality
and fraternity, by continuing to resist all
monopolies and exclusive legislation for the
benefit of the few at the expense of the
many, and by a vigilant and constant adhe
rence to those principles and compromises
of the constitution, which arc broad enough
and strong enough to embrace and uphold
the Union as it was, the Union as it is, and
the Union as it shall be in the full expan
sion of the energies and capacity of this
great progressive people.
Resolved, That a copy of these resolu
tions be forwa-ded through the American
minister at Paris to the national conven
tion of the republic of France.
Resolved, That the fruits of the great
political triumph of IS 14, which elected
James K. Polk and George M. Dallas,
President and Vice President of the United
States, have fulfilled the hopes of the dem
ocracy of the Union; in defeating the flc
clared purpose of their opponents to create
a national bank; in preventing the corrupt

treaty, in the noble impulse given to tin
cause of free trade, by the jcpcal of the
tariff of 1842, and the creation of the more
equal, honest and productive tarilTof 18 10;
and that, in our opinion, it would be a fatal
error to weaken the bands of palitical or
ganization by which these gieat reforms
nave been achieved, and risk them in the
hands of their known adversaries, with
whatever delusive appeals they may solicit
our surrender of the vigilance, which is the
only safeguard of liberty.
Resolved, That the confidence of the
democracy of the Union in the principles,
capacity, firmne3S and integrity of James
K. Polk, manifested by his nomination and

by the strictness of his adherence to sound

Indian Trouble. The Dubuque Trib
nie says, that the troubles with the Indians
continue at Fort Atkinson. Gen. Fletcher,
the sub-agent, had revoked the licenses of
ill the traders except that of Mr. Rice.
The Indians imagine in this a design to
lleece them. They threaten Fletchei's
life and his residence is guarded every
night by a detachment of troops.
LITTLE In an article in the last Ban
ner an error occurred in the phrase "sine

attention to which the Seventy-Six copied
the sentence containing it, committing other
blunders and credited the whole to the Ban

of the 20th inst., he copies a paragraph
from the Banner, italicising the word
breeches, that should have been Ircaehes,
in doing which he renders the word carcass,
in the same sentence, canvass, making non
sense of the whole and crediting it to the
Banner. Now we can stand it, to see our
blunders repeated, but we don't like to have

preparation excites the scalp to a new and
healthy action, cleanses it from scurf and
dandruff, prevents the hair from falling off,

We exclaimed the other day, on tasting
some of Jane's Tonic Vermifuge. It cer
tainly has none of the nauseous flavour,
which one associates with the idea of phys
ic. Children consider it quite a treat, and
in taking it their palates are gratifiod, and
their health restored at the same time.
Jayne's Tonic Vermifuge not only destroys
worms, but cerries off the mnens in which
they are imbedded, and effects a radical
and permanent cure. Every mother knows
the prominent symptoms of worms, such as
voracity, leannefs, fetid breath, grinding
af tlie treth during sleep, paleness of the
lips, itching of the nose, &c, but there is
other indicia not so generally recognizer'.
A dry cough, dull eyes, enlargement of the
abdomen, and many other symptoms com
mon to other diseases, frequently dnote
the presence of worms. If their existence
is even suspected, the Vermifuge should
be administered, because it can do no harm
in any case, and may do incalculable good.
