pelled to remain at home : but at 10 o'clock, the
long lines from the east and west, north and south, were visible, and in an hour's time our village was full to overflowing. The delegations carried portraits of Henry Clay, and inpumerable flaps tZnnn>trfamere' Wr,eaths' and a8h trees> and the multitude was enlivened on the wav with buTlt?.1 ?"?? ,onB'' f" 11,0 m08t cheering p?rt of the display was that made by our truo-fiearted mechanics. In one wagon was mounted a printing press, with torZ"Jr/P' "r"r'd ihrowino- < fre"jaj- wor ? ,t'leir Pre8B 'neaowhile Wliiir .a,)k ,8tr,')ut'ng a new collection of i t!11en canr,e a blacksmith's shoo on wheeJs, with bellows in full blast, and a half score u f f. arm? al work on the anvils ; and these were followed by other mechanics and laborers employed in a like manner; and all the vehicles were well manned, and carried beautiful banners, >adges, emblematic devices, and appropriate mot toe. and were every where loudly cheered. It was an indication that the great mass of our me cnanics and laborers appreciate the blessing of protection to domestic industry. As the proces sion re-entered the village preparatory to thoir march to the ground selected for the'speeches., the clouds gathered densely in the west, and the rain soon poured down in torrents, and continued "early two hours, but it did not cool the ardor of the Whigs. They had come in with their wives, daughters, and sons, to renew their allegiance to the Whig principles, and to do honor to the noble hearted statesman of Kentucky* At about 2 o'clock, P. M., the clouds gave way, and as the sun came out, the multitude immedi ately marched to the ground prepared for the oc casion, which was on the high land at the north ern part of the town. A stand for the speakers }ad;2 previously erected, and seats prepared for 4,01)0 people. It was soon discovered, how ever, that the seats were not sufficient; for full fijtetn thousand Whigs (including, perhaps, 1,500 ladies) were in attendance. The assemblage was called to order, and the Hon. Washington Hunt, our worthy and popular Representative, was called to the stand, and aftei a short congrat ulatory address, introduced to the assembly the Hon. S. C. Hawley, of Buffalo, who addressed the audience about two hours. His speech was a masterly effort, eloquent, convincing in its con clusions, and well adapted to the occasion. While Mr. Hawley was speaking, it was evi dent that a large part of the audience was unable to near him, on account of the distance. Another stand was therefore erected at the extreme north part of the ground, and after a few spirited son^s from our Rochester friends, Mr. Noble, of Indi ana, was called out, and addressed the people for a few minutes in a highly spirited manner. He was followed by Dr. Kelsev, of Rochester, a very powerful and effective speaker. His remarks were loudly cheered. Mr. Morehouse, of Utica, next took the stand, and made a very handsome' appeal to his Whig brethren, and was succeeded by G. W. Hoi ley, Esq., of Niagara Falls, to whom that part ot the audience listened with great pleasure. All this was at the second stand. At the main stand, alter Mr. Hawley's address was concluded, Lewis F. Allen, Esq., of Buffalo, was introduced, and spoke very happily and con clusively for about foriy minutes. The Hon. D. Lee, of Buffalo, was then announced, and deliv ered an effective and well arranged address. 1 he audience were delighted with him, and will not forget his earnest appeals and overpowering arguments. & Dr. Kelsey, who had been speaking at the other stand, was then loudly called for, and coming for ward, closed the proceedings by a short address, lull of wit and humor. Between the different speeches at both stands, the Orleans and Roches ter Glee Clubs gave us excellent songs in a fine style of execution, and at about 6 o'clock the as semblage broke up and the people wont quietly to their homes, all in good spirits and with triumph depicted in their countenances. I cannot omit to mention, that the procession from the village and from the different towns was graced by a large number of ladies, and where they are, there is no lack of enthusiasm. From Middleport, W ilson, Hartland, Somerset, Cam bria, and Lockport, and from other points, im mense vehicles brought in hundreds of beautiful women and girls, whose sparkling eyes and beam ing faces, to say nothing of the decorations which they displayed, added immeasurably to the charms of the occasion. Nor must I omit to mention one team in the Niagara Falls procession, headed by that veteran Whig, General P. Whitney, "mine host" of the Cataract. It consisted ot only twenty six hovsesy each team with a rider, and each horse with a flag, and drew a ponderous wagon 20 miles, load ed to the top with Whig mechanics and others. It carried in front a fine painting of the FaHs, and had the Whig doctrines fully printed in large capitals. " There were many incidents during the day of a very pleasing nature, but not an accident; and after this demonstration you may safely put dowu the Cataract county for ONE THOUS\ND WHIG MAJORITY. If there was a doubt about it before, that doubt is now dispelled. I witnessed the great gathering here in 1840 ; there was then a fair proportion in numbers, and a great degree in enthusiasm, but neither in numbers, nor in heartfelt emotion and determined resolu tion, was it to be compared to the gathering of to day. Our candid opponents (and there arc a few of them here) concede that 15,000 people wore in attendance, and many of our friends claim 18,000, and there were from one to two thousand in the village who were deterred by the weather from going on to the ground. Niagara. Sands s Sarsaparilla.?Wlien the appetite has fail ed and the digestive powers have become partially par alysed from dissipation or other causes, the dyspeptic resorts to various stimulants in the hope of restoring by artificial moans tho vital activity of the digestive appara tus. But the expedients only speed exhausted nature to a momentary exertion. The relaxation which succeeds is worse than the original torpor; and depression of spirit*, hypochondria, and sometimes even worse results ensue! '1 he only proper course is to cleanse and purify the ele ments of the blood, by means of some medicine, which will act directly upon the machinery which prepares and amalgamates them. Practical experience has established tJ'C fact that Sands's Sarsaparilla is that medicine. It restores to the stomach its tune?to the digestive appara tus its vigor, and to the blood its healthful character, by expelling the very seeds of disease Prepared and sold, wholesale and retail, by A.

It is a fit sepulchre for the histo rian of the Red Man." The Colonization Herald earnestly urges upon the attention of those favorably disposed towards the objects of the Colonization Society, the pro priety of securing, by purchase, to the Govern ment of Liberia, tho entire line of coast from Cape Mount to Cape Palmas, so as for ever to exclude the approach of slavers to any point within those limits. Four of the largest steamboats left New York on Mondty evening, crowded to overflowing with passengers for the Whig meeting at Albany on Tuesday. The Ohio.?The Louisville Courier ofThuw day last says : 44 The Ohio river is now at a lower stage than it has been during this year. The mail boats in consequence arrive some two or three hours after their usual time, and editors in consequence suffer some, for they have to work all night." Extract of a letter from Capt. J. L.

A tonnage duty of fifty cents per ton on all vessels trading here or any part of the Musquito Shore is to go in force on the 31st August, of the present year.

This coal is mined near Wilkesbarre, Pennsylvania, and is known in this city as the celebrated Butler Coal, which has been highly recommended by all who have used it, as will be seen by the highly respectable cer tificates annexedj I used coal last winter, which I purchased of Messrs. John Pettibone & Co., and it gave entre satisfaction. W. W. SEATON. Patent Office, Mny 31, 1844. Gentlemen : The Coal that you furnished for the Patent Office during this last spring proved very excellent; and 1 used the same kind which was delivered at my house. It proved in both cases highly satisfactory. H. L. ELLSWORTH. Messrs. J. Pettibone & Co., Washington. Office Secretary Senate, June 1,1844. Messrs Pettibone & Co. furnished a small quanta/ of Coal for the furnaces of the north portion of ti.e Capitol, and it was reported to he of a good quality. They also furnished at a reitonubla price lor my own private usa, during the last winter, several tons of the snme kind of Coal, and I was entirely satisfied wilh it, finding but little dust from its use, and but little else remaining than ashes, thcro being scarcely any clinker left. W. HICKEY. W ashington, Juno'25th, 1844. Gentlemen : Having used your Coal, 1 can cheerfully recommend it as being of superior quality for eiu-y iyiat.ua and culinary purposes. Respectfully, J. Pettibone & Co. WM SK1KV1NG. May 31, 1844. I purchased Butler Coal from John Pettibone & Co. last fall and found it a very superior article. W. LENOX. May 25, 1844. I purchased last year, from Messrs. John Pettibone & Co., what he called tho Butler Coal. I never Used a finer article of fuel. When I can find the Butler Coal, I shall not inquire for any other kind, for I am persuaded there is none better. JAMES HOBaN. Danvu.lc, Penn. August 2, 1843. I have bought of Messrs Butler & Co some hundred tons of their Anthracite Coal, and sold to persons lot dif ferent uses, and used considerable of it my veil. For burning in stoves and grates, I do pronounce it as good Coal as 1 ever have made use of; and every person to whom I have sold the Coal say they have never Used anything they liked better. JOHN C.
