The Weekly National Whio, Two Dollars per
annum, invariably in advance.
One ef the largest newspaper in the United
States, will be what its name indicates. It will
speak the sentiments of the Whig Party of the Uni
on upon all the questions of public policy now be
fore the country and to come before it.
It will advocate the election of
Major General
2 jk.CDIEiJft'Sr
the Hero of the Rio Grande, Monterey, and Bue
dr Vista, to the next Presidency, for which we be
lieve he has already been nominated by acclama
tion in the heart# of his grateful countrymen. But
while we advocate the election of this dis
tinguished and whole-souled Whig, who has
proved himself to be the greatest Captain of the
age in a series of battles without parallel in the
annals of warfare, and who, in his despatches has
exhibited a power of intellect and soundness of
.judgment unsurpassed in the history of the human
mind, we freely throw open our columns to the
discussion of the merits, by their friends, of the
other many eminent men, of the Whig party whose
names have been associated with the Presidency.
While Major General Taylor is our choice for the
Presidency, whom we believe no earthly power
can prevent the people from elevating unanimous
ly to the first gift in their choice as a token of their
appreciation of his true greatness, we shall be
guided by the voice of the great Whig yarty of
which we are but an humble member, and, if it
should, in the course of events, be ordered that
any other person than the man of our preference
shall be selected as our oandWate, we shall yield
him our cordial support.
The Weekly Whig will attack at every assaila
ble point, and ceaselessly, all the measures of the
present administration of public affairs which shall
be deemed to be adverse to the interests of the
country, and will expose without fear or favor the
corruptions of the party in power.
The columns of the Weekly Whig will be open
to the pens of every Whig in the country for the
discussion of the great political and other questions
?fthe day, and to every Democratic pen, too, in
terested in enlightning the public mind respecting
the corruptions and imbecility of the men to whom
in an evil hour, the Democratic party intrusted
the power of the Government.

circulation, strengthening the system and
itating digestion, Dr. Wood's Sarsaparilla and
Wild Cherry Bitters will restore the most confirm
ed invalid to health. Where either these effects
are necessary to the restoration, the " Bitters "
will be found to possess every quality desired.
They have been used already with the greatest
success, in many obstinate cases of impurity of the
blood, nervous irritation, Dyspepsia, low spirits,
Scrofula, palpitation of the heart, chronic head
ache and Rheumatism. They are indeed a happy
combination of powerful, yet safe and salutary
vegetable remedies, of a sterling and unimpeach
able reputation. They have won their popularity
solely by their intrinsic merits, and that they have
been successful, numerous certificates in the
hands of the proprietor, and the greatly increasing
sales fully attest. Those desirous of an agreeable
yet efficient tonic or alternative medicine, need
seek no further, for in this preparation they will
find all that is desired.

Philadelphia, April 8, 184?:
Last August a year, I caught a violent cold, in
consequence of getting wet in a shower of rain.
A circumstance so common gave me no immediate
concern, supposing that I should soon get rid of it.
On the contrary, however, I daily grew worse; a
violent cough set in, then pain in my breast and
between my shoulders. I now tuffered great op
pression from the great secretion of purulent mat
ter in my lungs. I became greatly alarmed; and
my friends considered my situation extremely
critical, the more so as loss of appetite, heotic
fever, and night sweats rendered me as weak as
a child, and at night the sweat literally poured off
me ! This was my condition vhen I commenced
using " Thomson's Compound Syrup of Tar and
Wood Naphtha." I procured one bottle, and ex
perienced so much benefit that I resolved to con
tinue it. It is now six months since I ceased using
the medicine, and the cure remains perfect. I
firmly believe this medicine is far superior to
every other remedy for Consumption of the Lungs.

LOUIS FONTAIN, jr., partner of the firm ef

Bookstore, No. 3. Elliott's Buildings Pennsylvania
Avenue, near Jackson Hall, which they offer
to the American public as a sure antidote for Con
sumption, in its advanced as well as incipient stages.
Acting directly upon the LUNGS, and arresting
their decay, it not only soothes and quiets at once
the distress and pain attendant upon this hereto
fore regarded fatal disease, but restores the lungs
and their sympathising organs, to natural and healr
thy action. Accompanying each package are gen
eral instructions and directions (translated) for it*
use, adapted to all cases, and it strictly followed,
will not fail, in every instance?if the lungs are
not wholly consumed?of restoring to health
which may be permanently secured by future care

rn^"For the information of persons residing in
the interior; any part of the government?he would
9tate that the remedy is prepared and imported di
rect from their Laboratorie, Paris, and that the
same can be transported through mail, as he is ad
vised by officers of the Post Office Department, to
any post office in the country, at the same charge
as for a double letter. Any persons, therefore,
residing distant from this city, who m*y wish to
avail themselves of the remedy, can do so by ad
dressing him through the mail, post paid. Two
dollars accompanying an order, will entitle a per
son to one whole and one third package.
THESE Bitters are purely a vegetable com
pound, and are offered to the public from
principle of benevolence, under the fullest convic
tion that they will be found a safe and sovereign
?emedy for Dyspepsia. They have been trium
phantly tested, not only by some of the most re
sectable families and physicians in the State of
South Carolina, who have furnished ample testi
mony as to their decided excellence, but also by the
proprietor, who, for ten years, suffered all the gloom
incident to that stubborn and distressing disease.
They possess the peculiar excellence, denied to
most other Bitters, of not proving injurious by con
tinued use. They contain not a single deleterious
ingredient, and, a* seen from the directions which
accompany each bottle, may be given with entire
safety to an infant in the menth.
With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I
send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit
In the year 1838, when the cholera was in
Charleston, S. C., I was compelled to send a servant
to the city. On his return, he was suddenly attack
ed with most violent pain in his bowels, so much so
as to cause apprehension that he would expire in a
short time, if medical sid could not be procured. I
immediately resorted to the Colleton BitUfts, by giv
ing a wine glass full at a dose. In the course of a
very short time it acted as an emetic, and throwing
him at the same time into a profuse perspiration. I
then continued to give it in small doses, from two to
three tea spoonsfull, which resulted in a happy re
covery. Since then I have been using it constantly
in my family, in cases of cholera morbus, cholera
infantum, diarrhma and general debility, and in
every instance found it highly beneficial. Some j
constitutions, however, require much larger doses
than others.
Bluffton, S. C., 1848.
It is with feelings of gratitude as well as pleasure
that I take this method of giving my testimony of
the greet estimation which I entertain for your iu
valuable compound. la justice not only to the me
dicine, but for the benefit of others who may be suf
fering from the same malady, Dyspepsia, with which
I was for years afflicted, I feel it a duty incumbent
on me to state that I am now restored to perfect
health. Whan I commenced taking the Colleton
Bitters it was as a last resort. My debility from in
digestion was so great that a cure was looked upon
as almost hopeless. After taking it regularly and
perseveringly for some time, my strength and di
gestive powers were entirely restored. I have never
taken a single dose of any other medicine for more
than five years past. I can now eat the richest food
without any unpleasant feelings whatever. I have
also used Colleton Bitters freely in my family for
cholera infantum, cholera morbus, general debility,
and as a tonic after fever, with great success. As a
family medicine I deem it invaluable, and do con
scientiously recommend it.

Dr. Christie'* Galvanic Rings and Mag
netic Fluid.
THIS remarkable invention, which has received
the almost, universal approbation of the medical
profession of Great Britain, comprises an entirely
new application of Galvanism, as a remedial agent
by means of which the ordinary Galvanic Batteries.
Electric and Magnetic Machines, Ac. are entirely,
dispensed with, and the mysterious power of Galvan
ism applied without any of the objections which are
inseparable from the general mode now in use.
The Galvanic Rings have been uesd with entire
success in all eases af rheumatism, acute or chronic,
applying to the head, face, or limbs ; gout, tic-dolo
reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sick
headache, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, fits,
cramp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stiffness of
the iointa, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia,
nervous tremors, dizziness of the head, pains in the
chest and aide, general debility, deficiency of ner
vous and physical energy, and all nervous disorders.
In cases of confirmed dyspepsia, which is simply a
nervous derangement of the digestive organs, they
have been bean found equally successful. Their ex
traordinary effects upon the system must be witnessed
to be bebelived, and a. a certain preventive for the
preceding complaints they are equally recommended.,
The rings are of different prices, being made of all
sizes, and of various ornamental patterns, and can
be worn by the most delicate female without the
slightest inconvenierye. In fact, the sensation is ra
her agreeable than otherwise.
The Galvawio Bsi/rs, Bracxikts, Bands, Uah
tehs, Neck lac as, &c. &c. These articles are
adapted to the waist, arms, wnsts, limbs,^nkles, or
any part of the body with perfect convenience. I be
Galvanic Necklaces are used with greater benefit in
cases of bronchitis or affections of the throat gener
ally ; also, in cases of nervous deafness; and with
almost uniform success as a preventive for appoplexy,
epileptic fits, and similar complaints.
Christie's Magnetic Fluid is used in connexion
with the Galvanic Rings, and all their modifications.
This composition has beon pronounced by the
French Chemists to be one of the most extraordi
nary discoveries of modern science. Full explana
tions and directions accompany it. The combined
inventions are in every way perfectly harmless; they
are at prices within reach of all, and the discoverer
only requests a fair trial, as a test of their surprising
efficacy and permanent benefit.

TKHii These articles form another valuable applica
tion of the mysterious influence of Galvanism. They
are an important adjunct to the genuine Galvanic
Rings and their modifications, scting upon the same
principle, but having the advantage of more local ap
plication- They are confidently recomended as a
valuable addition in the speedy cure of rheumatism,
acute or chronic; in all nervous complaints, and as a
positive remedy in cases of pain and weakness in the
chest or back, pain in the side, in asthmatic affections,
and in weakness or oppression of the pulmonary or
gans. In spinal complaints their effects are ot the
most decided character, and they have often been
a Bed with complete success. They are also of he
greatest advantage in pains and weakness af the
breast, and are highly recommended for many of
those complaints to which females are especially li
able As an effectual means for strengthening the
svstem when debilitated with disease and other cau
mm s certain aid ih constitutional weakness, as
?^preventive for colds, and in all affections of the
chest generally, the Galvanic Strengthening Plas
ters will be found of great and permanent advan
U ?*/* CAUTION. The celebrity and success of
these articles have caused them to be counterfeited
by unprincipled persons. Dr. Christie cautions the
public against spurious imitations. He has but one
authorized agency in each city of the Union, where
the genuine articles can be procured. The only
agents for Washington are?

AT the suggestion of many of the most respec
table citizens of Washington, and in accor
;e with a general wish expressed by visiters at
the seat of Government, that a commodious and
genteel place of resort for general refreshments
might be established on the plan of some of the
most celebrated Northern and Eastern Restaura
teurs, the extensive establishment known as the
Fronting the Unitarian Church, and in rear of
Coleman's Hotel, has been refitted and furnished
for the purpose, and the Saloons are now an
nounced as being ready for the reception of com
pany, with a full supply of choice Game, Oysters
and every delicacy or the season.
A separate entrance to the establishment will
introduce ladies and gentlemen to reserved Sa
loons, where they will meet with the most respect
ful attention, and parties may depend at all times
on being served with promptitude and at moder
ate chargcs.
The style in which these Saloons are fitted up
and the manner in which the friends of the estab
lishment and the public will be served, it is con
fidently believed, will be satisfactory.
