The haughty Briton once surveyed
Tht Ocean fair and wide,
And as be swayed his sceptre, claim'd
Dominion e'er the tide. .
' ' For many ages he had thought
That every genial breeze
Was his, tilf Yankee marchants taught
The "Freedom of the Seas."
- When nations, vexed and sore oppress'd,
Had entered in the fight
To settle long disputes, and thus
- Determined which was right,
- Our country took an active part-
But not on bended knees
To gain a poidt- at last secur'd
The 'Freedoom of the Seas."
The second war with Britain was
To gain the sailor's rights -Protection
on the seas -for this
The cheerful freeman fights.
American success proclaim'd
Though Britain disagrees-
That heaven-born principle the taught,
The "Freedom of the Seat.'
A master spirit urged the views
Of patriotism, and press'd
The subject on the minds and hearts
Of those whom he address'd ;
The European despots grant,
America to please,
- The principle for which we fought
The "Freedom of the Seas."
The man who, placed by freedom's voice,
Our views thus trt proclaim,
Deserves, as he shall soon receive,
The merits due to Fame.

To the People of Pike
At Betlville, 111., atown 13 miles from St
Louis, 400 packages of Da. Sroasi'S Candy
were sold in three months; and the agent re
ceived the following certificate from a large num
ber of persons who used it:
BeUvilleSl. Clair Co. March, 14, 1847.
We the undersigned, citizens of 13ellville,St
Clair County, III., having used the medicine
known as Or. Storm's Scotch Cough Candy,
prepared by H. Wade, of St. Louis. Mo., do
cheerfully testify to its efficacy as a remedy for
D'seases of the Breaft and Lungs, and we re
commend it to the public as a safe and agreeable;
C. J . H J UTS, MtUiodist Minister,
L. B. CABAUNE, Merchant,
O. J. RAPIER,
W. S. FLEMING, Ed. Bdlcill Dtmorat,
And many others loo numerous to mention
We have thoKghlit unnecessary to offer cer
tificates from individual in all caies, as pur
chasers are unable to inform themselves of the
actual existence' of Host of the signers. The
folio wilig. however.' is from a well known citi
zen of St. Louis', mo., resifcenue No. 210 vain
stieet two dollars below Cherry:
Ma. WADE.-i?ar Sir. ItafTjrds me pleasure
to offer my testimony to the olficacy of the arti
lce known a Br. Sarins Scotch Cough Candy.l
And in diong so, am actuated by a desire to
benefit others who may be suffering. My wife
was laboring under a severe cough for a long
time, which threatened serious injurv. After
having tried many other remedies tone purpose,!
she used a few packages of Storm's Cough Can-j
dy, purchased Iromour neighbors, Messrs. snow
Si QuirJt.and ina very short time she was entire
ly relieved, and now' enjoys good health. My
servant was also afflicted with a severe breastito
complaint, and she experienced almost immedi
ate relief from the use of this truly valuable
No. 210 Main Street
St. lout, -Voy 4, 1847.
The action of Dr. Storm's Scotch Cough Can
dy differs very materially from any other com
pound ever invented. It not only allays Bron
ohial Irritation, but operating as a very mild
purge, it keeps the stomach and bowels in a
healthy condition, leaving the patient an appetite
which few other Lough Mixtures could impart.
We have no disposition to injure the inventor
of any particular medicine, but in justice to the
world, we will give it as our honest opinion,
formed by the observations of eleven vears in
the school of medicine, thai lame and frequent
draughts of nauseous liquid Compounds takea
into the stomach from time to timemust have a
tendency to destroy the healthy tone of that vital
organ of Int human system.
ISo such abjection can be urged against the use
of this valuable Medicated Candy, for Sugar isa
grceable both to the pul.its and stomach, and we
honestly heicve that this preparation will do all
that medicine can do towards the relief of per
sons suffering with Colds, Coughs, Bronchitis.
Asthma, Bleeding of the Lungs, Pain in the Side
and Breast, Difficulty of Breathing, Hoarseness,
and all other symptoms of Consumption.

NARD & BRO., General Agents, No. 140 Main

also be obtained of any respectable country mer

To avoid counterfeits, our readers would
do well to inquire for Dr. STORM'S SCOTCH
COUGH CANDY, prepared by Harcilton Wade,
St. Louis, whose written signature is on the
HjfA liberal deduction made to country dealers.
