“ 'The Administration have just determined
to call out no more volunteers, hut to propose
the enlistinent of ten regiments of regulars to
serve during the war, and 1o be commanded by
officers appointed by the Kxecutive, and to ve
subject to the articlesof war, ‘l'hree Brigadier
Generals and a Major General will also be pro
wided for in the same bill.”
A word of parting advice for the future, on
‘reading out.”” While the ascendency of the
great fundamental principles of the democrat
gc party is the common object, all differences
of opinion as to candidates for, office are foun
ded on inherent rights, and must be borne
with;—therefore all attempts to read out and
denounce as renegades and traitors, or in any
way to coerce or intimidate any portion of the
party, with a view to oblige them to conforin
to the decisions of caucu= nominations, against
their settled convietion as to what in their o
pinien will most promote the true interests of
the party is any thing but democratic in its
spirit, and ought to be discountenancd by
all good democrats as tending only to re
duce a powerful party te a weak one, by
driving such of the party as may be wanting
m firmness of principle into the ranks of our
political opponents,
The clerk of the post office at Nashua, N. H,
while distribating the mail a few days since,
moticed that a sealed newspaper felt rather
heavy. Thinking a newspaper would bear
squeezing, he pressed it with his hand, when
¢-r-a-c-k! went something inside.—Looking in
at the end, he saw something which he found
to he a rich gold locket, containing one of the
sost charming faces imaginable., .
For THE War.—Messrs. Green & Diguco,
boat builders of Portland, have just completed
an immense barge for government, capable of
carrying one handred men, and intended for
the shoal waters of Mexico.

‘Don’t speak all atonce,” as the instructor said

‘Hail! wedded love,’ as the man said to his

“I'hat motion iz out of order,’ as the chairman

his arm to throw an egg.
MonoroLy AGaINsT Geese.—When steel
pens were invented, it was thought by some,
that it was done to injure the quill business ; but
now the attemy ¢ is to banish feathers in tofo.—
Exceilent cotton mattresses and pillows are now
made in Germany and England by a new pro
cess. ‘The cotton is prepared by a machine
which renders it surprisingly elastic. There
s no doubt, it is said, thatcotton will supersede
the use of feathers or hair for many purposes.
Thus, the consumption of American coiton

First Regiment U. S. Infantry, now at Fort

stationed at Fort Sunelling, and when this move

On the first fire, Dr. McMannus® ball passed
through the breast of Mr Bar’s coat and vest,

Tho? the hermit eats herbs and drinks of the brook, '
No sunshine no smile may be seen in his look,
Yet there is hope in his heart from above,
Tho’ the f:lse one so fair has made a breach there,
A voice whispers thus: Gop 1s LOVE,
As the spring does advance the flowers seem to dance,
The pretty birds sailing along,
A chirping and singing their merry way winging,
They all scem to sing a new SONG,
But now for the whole that is chanted by Harry,
To Susan to Pegay or rosy cheek’d Kate,
He has done with his LOVE SON G & chosen fair Mary,

There is, perhaps, no disease with which our country
is affected, which sweeps off amnually so m wny victims,
as that fell destroyer of the hmman race—Counsumption.
What a vast amount of suffering might be saved the hu
man family if they would but avail themselves in season
of the remedies which nature has provided tor her child
ren, and which science has reduced to zuch a form as to
be within the reach of all. Far be it from us to tamper
with those whoe are suffering with this painful disease.
In offering you a remedy, we do not ask you to rely upon
the representation of those who might be actuated by sel
fish and pecuniary motives, but we give you the deliber
ate testimony of some of the most respectable I"hysicians,
that WisTAß’s Bansam oF WiLp CHERRY has estub
lished ior itself a reputation that cannot be assailed. Dr
Win, A. Shaw, of Washington, N. C , writes, under date
ol May 1, 1846, as follows :
I have heard of many cases of decided beneficial ef
lects [rom its use, especially i Asthma and chronic cough
of spasmodic character. 1 have used the Wild Cherry a
great deal in practice, and with marked good results in
those cases of great nervous mobility, and rritability, to
which phthisical pavients are subject, I have no deubt
it is the best form in which the effeets of Prassic acid
may be had as a sedative on the constitution without dan
ger to the patient. Every one knows the reputation of
the Turpentine and Balsam constituents in protracted
coughs. The combination of these principles in Wistar’s
Balsam of Wild Cherry is ingenious and judicious.
Medical men are justly distrustful of Patent Medicines
in general, but candor must diseriminate between outra
geous humbags and nostrums and those medicines which
have proved salutary, and in many well atiested cases

Is thy constitution broken,
Bringing darkness o’er thy day ?
Towering high o’er imitation,
Dr Swayne’s Wild Cherry stands,
Spreading joy through many a nation,
E’en in icy Switzerland.
Compound Syrup of Wild Cherry
i mild and pleasant to the taste, perfectly safe and harm
less in its operations, and yet it is one of the most power
| ful and certain rermedies for Consumption of the Lungs,
| Coughs. Colds, Asthma, Spitting Blood, Liver Complaint,
’ Pains in the Side or Breast, and general Debility of the
Constitution, that was ever invented by the skill of man
for the relief of the afflicted public. Certificates and ev
idences of its wonderful curative powers are daily receiv
ed from all quarters. It is impossible 10 conceive the
aggregate of saffering and misery that has been relieved
or bamshed by it; nor can we calculate the immense ben
efit that shall accrue from it hereafter. All ages, sexes
and constitations are alike affected by it, and the disease
is eradicated from the system, the constitution repair
ed, and health restored by the use of Dr
SwayNe’sComprounp SYRUP oF WiLD CHERRY.
How many sufferers do we daily behold approaching to
an untimely grave, wrested, in the bloom of youth, from
their relatives and friends, afflicted with that fatal mala
dy CONSUMPTION, which wastes the misera
ble sufferer until he becomes beyond the power of human
skill. I such suflerers would only make a trial of Dr
would find themselves sooner relieved than by gulping the
various ineffective remedies with which our newspapers
‘ulmuml; this ““Vegetable Remedy’® heals the ulcerated
| lungs, stopping profuse night-sweats, at the same time in
ducing a natural and healthy expectoration, and the pa
tient will soon find himself in the enjoyment of comforta
ble health. The public should bear in mind that Dr.
Swayne is a regular practising physician, who has had
years of experience in diseases of the Langs, Chest, &e.
ask for Dr SWAYNE’s SYRUP, the only true and genuine
article WiLDp CHERRY before the public, aud we would
say to the afilicted, always look for the signatare of Dr

Dear Sir—l have this day had an interview \'vnh th'e
gentleman of whom I made mention to youas having t.'r\k'
en your Expectorant with such decided effect. He Is2a
respectable farmer, living a few miles from Lere. 1 was
so much interested in a detailed account he gave me of
his cough and cnre, that I embraced the first leisure mo
ment to communicate it to you, and if the cure is as radi
cal as it appears to be, it is the most remarkable one I
have ever known. For 32 years (after having the mea
sles) he has been suffering with a congh-of the most dis
tressing kind, getting worse as L& advanced in years, (he
is now 55.) Frequent terms of coughing and difficulty
of breathing, lasting from an hour to an hour and a half,
would come upon him, with such severity as to exhaust
him with strangling until his eyes become bloodshot. .He
had despaired of being cured, having tried physicians
and a thousard things witheut relief. For nine weeks
immediately previous to his taking the Expectorant, he
had not been able to go to his barn, although there was
the most urgent necessity for him to do so. During the
nine weeks he was under the care of an eminent Physi
cian, and he finally got just able to go out and come to
my store, and, hearing his cough, I recommended to him
your Expectorant. He first said he had tried so many
thiug§ that he had no confidence in anything; but 1 indu
ced him to take a bottle by telling him of persons of my
requaintance who had been decidedly benefitted by it.—
This was on T'uesday; that night he took of it, and says
that it was the first comfortable night’s sleep he had en
joyed for years. On the Thursday following he went to
work, and has continued to make a full hand on his farm
ever since, (now nearly two months.) He teold me to
day that for the last week he had cut and split a hundred
rails, or made 100 panels of fence per day ; has been in
the water to wash his sheep, and otherwise exposed,
without the least symptom of a return of his cough, it
having entirely disappeared.and, strangest of all, one-third
of a bottle has produced the effect. He seems so thank
ful and overjoyed that he *wants to talk all day about it,”
and says that if he could not procure another bottle, he
|would refuse SIOO for the remainder of the boitle he has
Your Carminative Balsam I have used or recommend
ed to others for the last ten years, with the most salutary
effect. Respectfully, yours, JoHN H. ANDERSON.
