ONE of the best Poreative and Liver Medi
cines now before the public, namely, lr.
Sanfortrs InrfgoraUr. or Liver Remedy, that
acts as a Cathartic, easier, milder and more
effectual than any other medicine known
It is not only a Cathartic, but a Liter rem
edy, acting first on the Liter to eject its mor
bid matter, then on the stomach and bowels
to carry off the matter, thus accomplishing
two purposes effectually without any of the
painful feelings experienced in tbeoperation
of most Cathartics. It strengthens the sys
tem at tho tame time that it purges it
end when taken daily in mederate doses
will strengthen and build np with tinusua 1
Dr. Sanford'a Tnvigorator is compounded
1 entirely from new articles of medicines, viz:
Hi Some idea of the strength of these gums
Omay be formed when it is known that one
bottle of the Invigorator contains as much
- strength as one hundred doses of Calomel,
H without any of its deleterious effects.
Tuougu possessing rare medicinal powers.
& these Gums have been but littie known to
physicians, and never used in their p re para -J
tions until u sed in the form of the Irtviyorat
Ul or, which met with such unprecedented suc-
Oeese as to induce the proprietor to offer it as
a family medicine tr'.ed and known in it
effects. It has rarely ever failed to cure Li v
Oer complaints in their worst forms.
Indigestion being cansed by a deranged
Liver is cured when the Liver is excited to
k Jaundice is cansed by an improper action
r of the Liver, and as a proof that the Invig
L orator relieves this disease, let any one take
Z thelnvigorator regularly one week, and their
skin will begin to assume its original color.
LJ Costiveness ean be permanently cured by
the Invigorator. Take it in small doses on
retiring, ard it will assist nature in hor op
tf erations. By gradually diminishing the dose
W the bowels are lefr in a healthy and active
W state, an I work as regularly as clock work.
Sick Head ache is very soon relieved by tak
l iug a double dose of the Invigorator, which
gorrccts all acidity and sourness of the atom
H For an over-loaded stomach it has no e-
anal, as it relieves oppressive or uneasy feel-
M ing after eating heartily. For a family ruod
icine generally, all who use it speak in th
rt) Dr. anford's Invigorator came to s, re
commended as a cure for Liver Comuplainta
n and all diseases arising from a Diseased Liv-
ner. The testimonials of so many of our
Physicians in its favor, induced us to try it.
anj now tonvietion is certain tliat it is one
ffi of the greute-st blessings eveegiwia to Dys
peptics, for it made a complete cure before
0 tho first bo. tie was taken, and now we can
eat anything ediblo witlior.t any troublj.
Hi while before nothing but the lightest food
would digest, and oiteu that gave pain . Now
ry what we want to say to all our readers is, if
fx Liver Oomolaint or Dyspcpf-ia trouble yon.
j do not fail to try this the greatest remedy in
sfl tho woild. State fact.
l There has never been tiied in our family
iri a remedy which has met with such iiub. uijd
vM cooss si'.ediii the cure oi diseases incident to
children as Dr. ISan ford's Invigorator; nor
is it alone for deases pt children that we
use it; for it acts as a Cathartic so mildly
and gently, and seems to renovate the sys
tem so thoroughly th.it we think we are do
ins; a service to all in advising thetn when
they need niedieino to try this remedy.
There are fuses that have come under our
notice wh re great bonotit has been received
indir-ca.es of the Liver, Stomach and How
els, where all other remedies failed to give
relief. It lias become so useful in our fami
ly '.hat we will not be without it.

Manly SeBtlmenta from a Slave State.
The St. Louis Democrat, Intelligencer,
and Evening News, have taken a decided and
manly stand against the Administration in
its iniquitous efforts to force slavery upon
Kansas. As a specimen of the tone and
temper of the articles that have recently ap
peared in the Evening News, we copy from
that paper of the 28th ult., the following:
Civil War iw Kansas Its Righteous -mss
Let the People Arm for Resistance.
The news from Kansas is of the most un
satisfactory and threatening character.
Great numbers of citizens, after several
months of peaceful pursuits, are again ecit-
then divided, seemed to think that the time
for a final struggle between them had come.
They wrangled and fought, then with much
hesitancy, and still looked to the Federal
Government for some just and firm move
ment that would make intestine war unne
cessary. Governor after Governor was sent among
them, full of the prestige of Democracy and
of the Administration's continence, and with
many fair Words the people of Kansas Were
protection and a fair exer-
cj8e Df their inalienable rights under the Ne-

tliem,in the right. Let them take unarms
and defy Mr. Buchanan and his troops, and
return shot for shot, as Ion;? as they have a
gun and a man to fire it. When they have
all fallen in the righteous cause, there will
be a million freemen tu take their places
and carry on the war.
"What!" says the startled adherent ol"
the Administration, "will yt u reai.it the law,
and become a felon and a rebel against the
Yes, we reply, even bo, if Mr. Buchanan
wills it. Tyranny is tyranny, whether per
petrated by George the Third, or James Bu
chanan and hio myrmidons of office -holders.
It is as righteous to resist usurpation jtou,
as ever before on this Continent. No mat
ter Irom what source it comes, it must and
shall be resisted. There is no dearer right
than that of self-government, and if Mr. Bu
chanan falsifies his own promises to the peo
ple of Kansas, anJ attempts, by murderous
means to crush their right to self-government,
he is no better than any common deceiver
and tyrant, and shall be resisted, personally
and officially, till bis :nsolence is rebuked
and his tyranny ovenhrown. And if the
end is civil war and blood, so let it be. The
like has happened before, and no doubt will
happen again, and ought to happen, when
false-hearted men gain power and use that
to oppress and harass a free people, and
trample upon their dearest rights.
The Kansas game of shuffling, equivoca
tion, villany and fraud, is fully played out.
The issue is now made, and it is Free Gov
ernment on one side, and the forced rule of a
contemptible minority of petty tyrants and
usurpers, upheld bv President Buchanan, on
the other. That issue will do as well to
fight on, now, as at any other time; and the
people of Kansas, and the sincere adherents
of the principles ot the Nebraski bill thro'
out the country, are as ready for it now , as
they ever will be. Let it come.

A Word About .Mcarosu.i.
As this country has for some time past at
tracted much of the public attention, and is
likely to do so for some time to come, a geo
graphical description of it might be of inter
est to many readers who meet every day
with newspaper accounts of events occurring
there. Nicaragua lies between the 10th ami
15th parallels of north. JatUude ; it has an
average length of 250 miles to a breadth of
about 220, consequently has an area of about
55,000 square miles, which is about tbe size of
the State of Illinois. One-tenth part of the
whole surface is covered by the Lake of Nic
aragua, which is 110 miles long with an av
erage breadth of 40 mites, and lies in the
south-western part of the State, ten or twelve
miles from the PaciSc Coast. This lake re
ceivs a great many small streams of water,
and discharges them again through the river
of San Juan (pronounced Sin Wan,) which,
running from the south-western end of the
hike, after a course of about one hundred
miles, empties into the Caribbean Saa at
Punta Arenas, in the south-east cornerof ths
Stale. It was at this point Walker landed
with 450 of his military tolloA-ers on the 35th
day of last mouth. Tho river is deep, but
narrow und crooked, und is navigable for
small steam vessels from its moti'h to the
lake. Nicaragua is bounded on ihe south by
Costa Rica, the most southern of the Statos
ol Central America; on the north by the
State ol Honduras; east by the Caribbean

counting the remnants of aboriginal tribef,
half breeds and Spanish; of the last there
are but few, but they are in fact the strength
of the State, being, mostly priests and officers
of government and owners of the soil and
masters of the native population. Nowhere,
perhaps, on the continent of America, has
the original population reached so great a
aeptn ot human degradation as in the Cen
trai American States. With no prospect but
extinction or the most abject slavery before
them, they are indolent, vicious, faithless,
and nlthy to the last degree, subsisting on
the spontaneous bounties of nature, and,
when this resource fails, on any description
of offal or garbage that presents itself to
their depraved palates. The climate is warm
and they require but little clothing, and that
is so fiJtby aa to render the sight of them
unbearingly loathsome. Whether Walker's
success would improve their moral and phys

Of Fairs Their Sources and Extent of Power.
We never visited a Pair, from the humb
lest township gathering to the proud festival
of a State or Nation, without having oure
motions stirred and our intellect quickened
and enlarged by their influence. It will
not do us any barm to analyze the sources of
their power. What are they! They are
I. Example. The simple fact that others
are making improvement, and that we see
and feel it, is enough to start many from a
life of lethargy to one of vigorous industry
and accomplishment. Men become warlike
or peaceful, gentle or rude, elegant or boor
ish, because others about them are. So with
farming community in which fairs are held
that Till attend. The mass see what the
rest are doing and the same instinct of im
itation which should have led them to use
a stick with one end burned hard for a
plow had they lived iu the time of Homer,
now leads them to use the latest and best
patents, which turn a furrow twelve inches
deep and sixteen inches wide, and lay
every blade of grass completely out of
If. Emulation. Men do not like to be
out done by their niohnors. The man
whom the mere force of example will not
rouse, may be quickened by the knowledge
that others with no better brains and.no
more means than his are outstripping him
in wealth and comfort, in taste and puwer.
'It is base to be beaten thus,' he says to
himself. His muscles now move to the im
pulse of his soul. A fjir stimulates emula
tion, and this is another grand source of
III. Ambition. Men love fame. Those
who suppose that orators and statesmen,
discovers in science, and conquering gener
als are the only men
"Who see tlic brow of laurel wave,
And elibrt make to climb,"
make a great mistake. The improver or

The mechanic, whose invenlive power has
transformed the toil of the reaper to horses
and oxen, and whose finished implements
enable the fanner to harvest a hundred acres
of wheat in one week, and thrash it and
send it to market the next, has as high a title
to renown as if his invention had been
christened with some high title drawn from
a Greek L"xicon and heralded to the world
with a flourish of trumpets, at which all ears
would ring. Now Fairs call forth this am
bition. And this ia another source of their
IV. Acquisitiveness. Men love money.
And within proper limits, and for proper ends,
this is no ignoble impulse. That it is a pow
erful one and next to universal, none will
denv. Now Fairs appeal to this impulse with
great effect. A wide market is here found
for everything whose excellence is obvious,
and whose cheapness brings it within, the
reach of their money. A single State Fair
in a single year may evoke nnd gratify this
impulse in an intelligent and innocent way
to a degree which transcends all ordinary
V. Curiosity. Men love to see new
things. This is an elementary form of the
love of knowledge, and is the same impulse
in the peasant as in the philosopher, in the
child as in the gray haired patriarch.
Now Fairs gratify this impulse in a most
wonderful degree. For most men see at a
Fair, well planned and managed more new
things in three days than they can see in a
year besides. Fairs stimulate curiosity too.
The thinking men or women whose minds
have been delighted thus will wish to go a
gain. The more they see the more curious
they will be to see again. The recurrence
of Fairs provide for all this. Hence anoth
er source ol their power.
Sugar from Sorghum.
It has been stated that it is impossible to
make sugar from the juice of the sorghum,
but experience shows that this position is not
correct, and that the juice is susceptible of
being crystalized. The following, extracted
from the proceedings of the Cincinnati Hor
ticultural Society, contains valuable evidence
confirmatory of its sugar making qualities :
On call of the Society, at the suggestion
of the Committee on Sorghum, Mr. Hedges
made some important statements in relation
to the capacity of ihe syrup -of sorghum for"
crystallization into sugar; among others, that
the recent experiments of Professor Wayne
had shown the presence of starch in the sor
ghum, which would proves serious perhaps
positive ,'i'stacle to cryelallization. But it
wus deemed practicable to obviate this, either
by chemical re-agents or peculiar manipula
tion of the cane itself"; some experiements
on which tending to sustain this idea. Mr.
Hedger stated to the Society, and read the

soil, was quite a different thing from thatob-

cane grown on cold soil, to produce the

Mr. Graham stated that the presence of
starch was not, as he thought, an insur
mountable obstacle to crystallization; for in
Prance, in seasons ot sugar scarcity, the su

made sugar out of starch. Mr. Graham ex
hibited a specimen of sorghum sugar already

The Breeding aad Bsaniig of Poultry.
No subject discussed in agricultural jour
nals and books is more hackneyed than that
of poultry. Fowls of every size, from the
tiny Bantams scarcely large enough to crow
up to those mammoth birds from China, which
are at once monsters in growth and mon
sters in deformity have been described with
all the minuteness and professional learning
of domestic ornithology. With particular
races of breeds, as compared wiih others we
have nothing to do; our purpose is to deal
wiih general principles, and suggest certain
economical views in the breeding and rear
ing of poultry applicable alike to birds of
every feather kept either for eggs or flesh.
Ducks and Guinea fowls are tbe best layers,
when properly fed and otherwise cared for,
although geese, turkeys, and Dunghill fowls
often surprise us by their extraordinary fe
cundity. What circumstances most influ
ence the production of eggs iu domestic birds!
Newly laiJ eggs are valuable either for eat
ing or propagation; and how to obtain the
maximum yield from a given quantity offo.ul
is a point worthy of investigation. If one de
sires to obtain many eggs he should kef p
young birds, or rather avoid feeding old ones
for that purpose. Stock fowls should con
sist of pullets and hens of from onj year to
four and of no more cocks than one to every
twenty-four to thirty hens. Too many males
affect injuriously the egg-forming process ip
the system. Like every other luiu'tion, its
physiological laws ought to be studied and
ancterstood, excessive pairing, overage?, de
fective nutrition, extremes of cold or bent,
impure air and water anJ disqui. tuJe Iroin
frequent disturbances, are the more common
causes of barrenness in this class of animals.
Many are the ingenious contrivances that
have been resorted toto keep hens constantly
laying, and to curejiuattvof a natural desire to
set or inciiba'-c Uieir Pggs. During the rage
for particular breeds, fenile eggs of favoiite
kinds have ben worth a dollar apiece and of
.course the tijc-af the hen that eJyr--rvi.rfr TS"
too valuable tj be wasted in hatching ch'ck
ens and nursing them which a common bird
may do as wt When well supplied With
animal food (butcfir-iT. efrol, cracklings, and
the like,) Poland hens are so prolific in egg;
as to be denominated "everlasting layers."
Those engaged in rearing extra-iine stock
fowls; boil all refuse meat for their daiiy
consumption. From such digestible food
birds form either eggs or flesh with the ut
most facility. Wheat and oata are more
congenial aliment than corn, altogether the
tatter is far from being worthless.
Poultry-houses and yards ought to be kept
very clean; and all walls aud tences should
be thickly coverd with white-wash made of
lime. For wallowing iu, to kill lice and oth
er vermin, dry leached ashes kept under shel
ter, are exeelant, and even eurth is better
than nothing. Some green food, like chop
ped cabage, potatoes, or carrots, contributes
much to the health of all poultry in winter;
a variety of food is important; and not less
so are pure air and a due degree of warmth.
Cleaning Silveii. The following valua
ble piece of information relative to the cleanse
ing of silver, it is taken from a late number
of Chamber's Journal:
A desideratum long sought for has now
been acheived that is, a means of perfectly
cleaning articles of silver without injury to
the metal. It is the discovery of Prof. Butt
ger, a German. Take a glass or glazed ves
sel sufficiently large for the purpose; fill it
with a strong solution of borax, or of caustic
potash; drop it into an inner vessel made ot
zinc, pierced with holes, as a sieve. Then
take your silver, plunge it in'o tho liquid,
moving it up and down, being careful'y that,
at each plunge, it comes :tito contact with
Ihe zinc. Ti.c effect is magical; for, un
der the combined action of the solution and
the electricity evolved by the contact o!" the
two metals, the silver loses nil its dirt nn.)
discoloration, and becomes as bright as when
first manufactured. Should it not bi con
venient to use the inner vessel of zinc, ihe
cleansing may be accomplished by sinking
the silver into a solu'.ion, nnd stirring it about
with a small rod of zinc. It is essential to
success I hat the two metals touch each oth

The President's Messaji on Central
Iu response to the call of the Senate for

which we reprint from the Washington

In capturing General Walker and his coca -tnand,
after they hud lande 1. on the soil ot
Nicaragua, Commodore Put Iding has, ir. mjr
opinion, committed a grave error. It is
quite evident, however, frori the communi
cations herewith transmitted, that this was
done from pure and patriotic motives, and in
ihe sincere conviction that he was promot
ing tbe interests and vindicating the honor
of his country. In regard to Nicaragua, sbe
has sustained no injury by tbe act of Com
modore Paulding. This has enured to ber
benefit, und relieved her from a dreaded in
vasion. She alone would have any right l
couiplaiti of the violation of her territoiy ;
and it is quite certain she will never exer
cise this right. It unquestionably does not
lie in the mouth of her invaders to complain
in her name that she has been rescued by
Commodore Puulding from their assaults.
The error of this gallant officer consists iu
exceeding his instructions, and landing his
sailors and marines in Nicaragua, whether
with or without her consent, for the purpose
ot making war upon any military force
whatever, which he might find in the coun
try, no m ilter from whe ice they came.
T.iis power certainly did uot belong to him:.
Obedience to law and conformity to in.

Rynders presented himself at the State De

My opini. n of the value and importance
of these laws corresponds entirely with that
expressed by Mr. Monroe in his message tu
Congress of December 7, 1819. That wutr,
prudeiil, and patriotic statesman says : " Is
is of the highest importance to our national
character and indispensable to the morality
of . ur citizens that all violations of our nen
trulity should be prevented. No door should
be left open for the evasion of our laws, n
opportunity afforded to anv who may bar

The crime of setting on foot or providing
the means tor a military expedition withitv
the United States to make war against a
foreign State with which we are at peace,
is one of an aggravated and dangerous char
acter, and early engaged tbe attention of
Congress. Whether the executive govern
im til possesses any, or what power, iMMies
the Constitution, independently of Congress,
lo prevent or punish this and similar offen
ces against the law of nations, was a sub
ject which engaged the attention of ou
most eminent statesmen in the time of the
,.d Ministration ot (Jen. Washington, and or
the occasion of the French Revolution.
The act of Congress ot the nth June, 179V
fortunately removed all tbe difficulties ea
this question which had before existed.
The out ami 7th sections of this act, which,
relate to the present quo-lion, are the same
in substance with the 6h and 8th sections
of ihe act of April 30th, 1818, end have now

expeditions proceeding from our shares.
The seventh section alone, therefore, which
s.mply defines the crime and its punishment,
would have been inadequate to accomplish,
this purpose and enforce our international
duties. In order to render tbe law effectual,
it was necessary to prevent "the carrying
