seized with n bowel cmnjihant, caused, as I sup
pose, by a change of diet. It continued for two
weeks without intermission, and notwithstanding
the remedies prescribed by a respectable physician,
we gave up the child a victim, as we supposed, to
a fatal disease, but I providentially heard of
"J ay ue'a Carminative," as an effectual cure for
bowel complaint, and immediately despatched a
messenger to a town seventeen miles off for a bot

thirty six hours the disease was checked; and by
its continued use for a few days the child was
restored to perfect health. Shortly after this,
there occurred a similar case in one of the fami

your INDIAN EXPECTORANT has effected
a cure in me ot a most distressing complaint, in
December last, I was seized with great severity
by a Paroxysm of Asthma; a disease with which
I had been alllicted lor many years past. It was
attended with a hoarseness and soreness of the
lungs and throat, together with a laborious cough,
and complete prostration ot strength, and when
almost worn out with suffocation, a bottle of your
Expectorant was sent to my house. At first 1
thought it was nothing but quackery, but seeinq,
it so highly recommended by Dr. Going, with
whom I was well acquainted, I was induced to try
it, and in a few days it completely cured me, nor
have I ever had any return ot the disease since,
I have now formed so high an opinion of your
medicine, that if I had but a few bottles of it, and
could obtain no more, I would not part with them
for k.i dullurs earn.

say enough to you in favor of AliberCs Oleaginous

oil' two years, and had become very thin, threatning
sjicedy baldness, when I commenced using this
remedy. In about one week it ceased to tall oil.
I have used it now about three months, and have
as full and thick a head of hair as I can possibly
desire. I have recommended its use to a number
of my friends, who oil speak well of it. If faithful
ly employed, I have no doubt of its general success.
I may adit that before using the l onic, 1 had tried
almost all the various articles employed for the
hair, such as the Macassar ( til, all the different
preparations of Bear's Oil, Vegetable Hair Oil,
&c. &c. without experiencing much, if any
benefit. Respectfully yours,

two or three years past it had so fallen out that my
head had become almost entirely bald. I was
under the necessity of concealing the baldness by
combing the hair on the sides over it. But now
after using alwut half a bottle of the "Tonic," I
have as luxuriant growth of hair as I ever had.
C. C. PARK.
The Rev. Leonard Fletcher, Taster of the Bap
tist Church at Great Vally, Pa., who had been
more or lens bald for inanv vcars. used three bottles
of die HAIR TONIC, and has now a fine growth
of new hair over all that part of his head where he
was before bald, writes '"My hair is growing
finely, I assure you."

The above is the title of a new paper, commenced
at Ottawa in May last, und has already a circu
lation equal to uny country paper in the State,
THE establishment of the " Fiie Thadeb" has
A for its ob.ect the "GENERAL WEL
FARE." To promote this our efforts shall be
chiefly devoted to the dissemination of informa
tion relative to the fertility and exhaustlcss na
ture of the soil composing the " tipper Illinois
to represent to the man of capital and enterprise
the number of advantages this highly favored
section of country presents for investment and
to encourage emigration and settlement among us.
To the FAiiMEii we promise a liberal space of
our columns, and assure him thot the "FrekTba-
deu" will not be unmindful of his best interests.
He shall ut all times be advised of the state of the
markets furnished with full and accurate infor
mation relative to the improvement of his lands,
stock, etc., which will be furnished from periodi
cals of the highest standing in the agricultural
To the meiichant, and men of business gene
rally, we promise a full and impartial account of
the "business world," as far as the same may
come to our knowledge. Having made arrange
ments for the receipt of the ablest and best com
mercial journals of the Atlantic cities, we will bo
able to give accurate information respecting the
jirineipal commercial transactions in that qnarter,
m conjunction with the latest foreign news,
which nt the present age is all important to tho
man of business, inasmuch as the Old and New
World are closely linked together in their com
mercial transactions. We will furnish all the
information wc possibly can respecting the paper
circulation of tho country, and expose with un
sparing hand, all attempts to force on the com
munity a fraudulent and worthless currency.
The mechanic and the piioffessionai mat
wc promise a share of our columns. Belonging
to the first, wc shall ot all times be pleased to ad
vocate and sustain their rights, and render such
information as may tend to their prosperitjrand
happiness; and viewing the latter as essentially
necessary to the moral and politic al greatness of
our country, we will with "open hearts and
willing hands" render them all the service our
situation may command.
Having for our object the "GENERAL
WELFARE," as before stated, we are impelled
by a sense of justice to advocate and sustain the
measures of the Dkmocbatic Pabtt. Tho
" Free Trader," therefore, will he found on the
side of democracy and the people's rights op
posed to monopolies of all kinds, whether state or
national onuosed to all "officers for life," and
w ill render all the aid in its power to the diffusion
of light and truth. The dark and artful designs
of the monopolist, which have for a season
clouded the prosperity and well nigh ruinedth
commercial crcatness of this mighty nation,
should be exposed to public goze, and every free
man in tho land be made acquainted wun meir
We have tuken our stand on the parapet of
democracy from a full conviction of its purity,
and as the only safe-guard offered to tho protec
tion of the free institutions of our country. But,
while we are the votaries of Democracy, und en
deavor to perpetuate its permanency by advoca
ting the principles ot J eh ebhon and jacksoh,
we wish it to be distinctly understood, that we
will never be so far influenced by party coiuride
rations, as to disregard the sentiments and fee
lings of others, equally entitled to their own opin
ions, anil who doubtless honestly maintain them.
Our course shall be mild towards our political
opponents, and our sentiments couched in rc-
speettul though decided law" age.
Tho miscellaneous department of tho paper,
together with such local news as may be of in
terest to the reader, will receive duo attention
from the editors.
