It will 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 a ^om aibt waummb# or Louisiana; the Hero of the Rio Grande, Monterey, and Bue na Vista, to the next Presidency, for which we be lieve he has already been nominated by acclama tion in the hearts of his grateful countrymen. But while we advocate the election of this dis tinguished and whole-souled Whig, who has pfeved himself to be the greatest Capta'm 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 pjrevent 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 party of which we arc but an humble member, and, if it should, ia the course of events, be ordered that any other person than the man of our preference shall be selected as our candidate, 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 power of the Government.

ANOTHER WONDERFUL CURE! Phh.abw.wiia, April 9, 1846. 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 ol 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 suffered 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, hectic 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 1 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. 1 firmly believe this medicine is far superior to everv other remedy for Consumption of the Lungs.

RESTORATIVE FRANCAISE. CONSUMPTION, LOUIS FONTAIN, jr., partner of the firm ef . Fentain &. Son, Chemists aftd PrescTiption ists to the Royal University, Paris, has established at Washington city, D. C., a depot for the sale of < the above celebrated compound, at Wm. Adam's Bookstore, No. 3. Elliott's Buildings Pennsylvania Avenue, near Jackson Hall, which they offer to the American public as a tun 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 quieta 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 heal thy action. Accompanying each package are gen eral instructions and directions (translated) for its use, adapted to all cases, and if 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 foture care and avoiding too much exposure to atmospheric changes. LOUIS FONTAIN. Price, eight Francs. ?n3r"For the information of persons residing in the interior; any part of the government?he would state 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 may 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. LOUIS FONTAIN. COLLETON BITTERS. THESE Bitters are purely a vegetable com pound, and are offered to the public from principle of benevolence, under the fullest convic- 1 don that they will be found a safe and sovereign -emcdy for Dyspepsia. They have been trium phantly tested, not only by some of the most re sectable families and physicians in the State of touth 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 Bittern, of not proving injurious by con tinued use. They contain not a single deleterious ingredient, and, as seen from the directions which accompany each bottle, may be given with entire safety to an infant in the nwnth. With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit ters. 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 aid could not be procured. I immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, 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 I three tea spoonsful!, which resulted in a happy re covery. BinMtkan I h*u? bwn using it ?<uutaally in my family, in cases of cholera moibus, cholera infantum, diarrbena and general debility, and in every instance found it highly beneficial. Some constitutions, however, require much larger doses than others. 108. D. JENKINS. ! Bluffton, S. C., 1846. It I that It is with feelings of gratitude as well as pleasure mat I take this method of giving my testimony of the great estimation which I entertain for your in valuable compound. In justice not only to the mc 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. When I commenced taking the Colleton Bitters it was as a lest resort. My debility from in digestion was to 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 sny unpleasant feelings whetever. I have also used Colleton Bitters freely iu my family for cholera infantum, cholera morbus, general debility, and as a tonic after fever, with great success. As & family medicine I deem it invaluable, and do con scientiously recommend it. A. M. R. 8t. Johns Colleton, S. C., December, 1845. For sale by the only Agent for the District of Columbia, B.

THIS remarkable invention, which hos 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, &c. 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 Kings have been uesd with entire success in all aases ef 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 joints, spinal complaints, lumbugo, neuralgia, nervous tremors, dizziness of the head, pains in the chest and side, 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, tbey have been been found emially successful. Their ex traordinary effects upon the system must be witnessed to be be belived, and as a certain preventive for the preceding complaints they are equally recommended. The ring* are <4 different prices, being made of all sizes, and of various ornamental patterns, and can be worn by the moat delicate female without the slightest inconvenience. ? In fact, the sensation is ra her agreeable than otherwise. Thk Galvanic Belts, Bracelets, Bands,Gar ters, Neck lacks, 6cc. &c. These articles are adapted to the waist, arms, wrists, limbs, ankles, or any part of the body with perfect convenience. The 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 appoplexv, epileptic fits, and similar complaints. / Christie's Magnetic Fluid is used in connexion with the Galvanic Rings, and all their modifications. This composition has been 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. Christie's Galvanic Strengthening Plas tkus. 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, acting upon the same principle, but having the advantage of more local ap plication* They are confidently recomended as a valuable addition in the speedy euro 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 of the most decided character, and they have often been used with complete success. They are also of the greatest advantage in pains and weakness ef 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 system when debilitated with disease and other cau ses, as a ccrtain aid in constitutional weakness, as ? preventive for colds, and in all attections of the chest ponarally ihfl Galvanic Strengthening Plas ters will be found of great and permanent aavan toge. .
