A VERY IMPORTANT COMMUNI CATION TO ALL PERSONS IN ALL PLACES, AT ALL TIMES, And under all circumstances J If you are sick, get cured ; if well, employ measures to continue so. Every individual in dulges in habits, which must, to a greator or lesser extent, disarrange the admirable and intricate combinations which form the system, and conse quently every individual should possess some muti, ei eincaeious, simple ana accreairea agent for preserving all the functions of the body in good order. Dr. I Toods Sarsaparilla and Cherry Bitters will achieve this result, and should be in every family, and in the hands of every person, who, by business, profession or general course of life, is predisposed to the very many little ailments that render life a curse, instead of a blessing, and finally result, in their aggregated condition, in the cause of Death. The Bitters here mentioned are compounded by a man of grejt skill and knowledge, from the simples Nature presents to those who care to find them, and which are the only reliable anti dotes to the poison of disease. The chief ingre dients are the universally-beloved Sarsaparilla and the Hark of the Wild Cherry Tree, with which the red mm of the forest cures nearly every disease of the internal organs. These ma terials, though powerful in their action, are, as common sense teaches us. EJVT1REL Y HARMLESS ; and prepared as they are here, one of the greatest medical operatives in the inhabitable globe. By, takimr these Hitters, tlic"scfinil(msTinfU)e restor. ed to beauty, and avoid the sharp knife of the surgeon; tor they not only eradicate pimples ana rumors, but over come CAJVCER AJSTD I'LXG'S E V1L ! Whoever is subjected to the horrors of Consti pation, should at once purchase this sure remedy. In the train of Costiveness follow dreadful local congestions, ofte'ntimes insanity, very frequently mani 1 or hypochondria, violent headaches, palpi tations, and other affections of the heart, and rhumitic swellings. Dr. Wood's Compou id is owe of the most efficient medicines in routing these complaints, and their fountain head, that can possibly be procured. From being confined in close rooms and from taking a small modicum of exercise, numerous persons il lily are made to deplore a loss of appe tite, painful headaches, weakness of the muscles, languor, want of energy sufficient to permit them to seek recreation,' &c. &,c. " These persons say for years, that they-" don't- feel very well." If they do not employ a method byv which they can feel quite well, they eventually sink under a severe fit' of illness, and are ' . SAVED FROM THE GRAVE only by a miracle and even then the lancet, leech, blister and calomel have left them mere shatter ed hulks, full of aches and sorrows, and not only a pest to themselves, but a source of disgust and annoyance to all with whom they come in con tact. All these FEARFUL COJS'SEQUEJVCES maybe avoided by an early application of the virtues of these Bitters. For the truth of this, the proprietor pledges his word and honor, and in evidence can show files of undoubted certify rates which lie has received, unsolicited from all, quarters. He does not, however, ask the invalid to swallow his certificate but his Bitters, and is w illing to stake ; ll he holds dear on earth in favor of their worth. THE DYSPEPSIA. in either a modified or severe form, will disappear before the qualities of Dr. Wood's preparation, ami the cure may be relied on as a permanent one. Did the Bitters possess no other recommendation, it would be one ofthe finest vegetable compounds medical science can invent ; but it is equal to the complete eradication of LIVER CO.MPLAIJVT, in every-shape, and of every affection, minoror gigantic, of the bilitary- aparatus. " Individuals who are constitutionally bilious ought regularly to take this mild agreeable and excellent tonic and aperient, as it will diffuse health throughout every fibre of the frame, and send happiness and love of life thrilling to the heart. Families ought to keep it on hand. Every medicine chest on board ship should also be well stocked with this capital remedy, as Oct- SCURVY -4SS cannot afflict those w ho take it, or long resist its vigorous assults. All im purities of the blood vanish before if , and the old relics of early imprudence invariably disappear, soon after being submitted to its action. Every complaint of the stomach is broken by it. The Bitters have in so instance failed of curing Jaun dice, general debility everv disorganization f THE JYERVOUS SYSTEM. By neglecting the little inroads made upon the latter a vast portion of our fellew beings are ren dered extreinelv miserable so miserable, indeed, that thy w ish to die. Ev ery bottle of " Dr Wood's Sarsaparilla and Wild Cherry Bitters" contaius a modicum of joy and content for each of these anxious antl imprudent sufferers. Re member that an injudicious use of mercury is inevitably productive of many evils which are pnt to flight by this glorious and unsurpassable compound; and that afflictions, which are HEREDITARY may speedily and safely be shuffled off through its agency, As a medicine which must benent EVERYBODY. from the simply delicate to the confined and des pairing invalid, no equal is to be found for it. It would be well to bear in mind that preventive is infinitely more desirable than cure, and that Dr. WTood's Sarsaparilla and Wild Cherry Bitterf are both.

We received last week, from Capt Jones, two copies of the Flag of Free dom printed at Puebla, Mexico, dated, 30th Oc tober, and ou Nov. These papers are printed and published by Mexicans. In speaking of peace, the Flag says, (what every man of intelligence in this country, Know s to be true) as follows: In this country, nothing that relates to state matters, is secure. We may con clude a treaty with the present . govern ment of Mexico to-morrow, ami the day following may bring forth an opposition that can only be put down by the force of arns ; under such circumstances it is ex tremely doubtful, whether any ruling pow er can assure us, that that which is agreed upon one day, shall not be annulled the next. EXTRACTS FROM THE FLAG OF FREEDOM. Many of the more wealthy citizens of this place left their homes during the late siege, for protection elsewhere. A number of them have returned since the arrival of American reinforcements, and others are daily coming in. All business had stop ped while the besieging Mexican army was present, and now that the Americans are again occupying the whole ofthe city, stores and shops of all descriptions have re-opened, and business is going on finely. This is strong evidence that business-men have more confidence in the protection they re ceive from the "northern babarians," than that which is afforded them by the "mag nanimous" chieftains of their own soldiery We learn with pleasure that Gen. Lane is about making arrangements to fill the empty coffers of the pay department. It lias been truly s?.id, that this department is but poorly represented in Puebla, and the sooner it is established on a more credita ble footing, the better it will be liked by all hands. Anecdote of the Siege. came in with Gen. Santa -When the flaa: Anna's demand to Col. Childs for a surrender, the officers sent out to receive it, not exactly under standing the "custom of war in like cases," displeased the Governor, who approached himself, and not supposing that ihe bearer ofthe flag could understand our language, talked very plainly to his officers. It was intiuMfctetl-tu him that lite messenger could understand and speak the English language and that he desired a conversation with the Governor, who asked: Has he de livered his communication?" The answer being Yes;" he said A reply will be made in due time," and returned to his quarters. The bearer of the summons "was 'Major Iturbide of the Mexican cavalry well known in the United States. On, hi re turn to Head Quarters he said to Gen San .ta Anna : There is no hope of a surren-t tier from that cross Governor," and the reply of the latter fully confirmed his pre diction. We have this from the Major himself, who was subsequently taken pris oner at Huamantla, gallantly carrying an order of Santa Anna. Mexican Hum or. It is rumoied here, that Pena y-Pena, the President, and his government, are strongly in favor of a peace with the United States, and that public opinion is fastly inclining that way. Peace is desirable for both parties; but whether this rumor is founded on any thing substantial or not, whether, if it is, wc are warranted in expecting any good to come from it, is an -entirely different, and, in our opinion, very doubtful question, and -we can only give it for what it is worth, 'leaving our readers to comment upon it as bestsuits them. Capt. William J. Clark. Wc find in the Union of Monday night, the official despatches of Maj. Lally, accompanied by , the sub-report of Lieut. Sears, who com manded the battery, detailing the in cidents of his march from Vera Cruz to Jalapa, between the 6th and 20th of last August Lt. Sears, in his report, thus notices the gallant conduct ol Captain Clark and his company: - "Havinr but six men left, and finding it impossible to elevate the remain ing piece sufficiently to reach the enemy on the heights. 1 reluctantly ordered the pieces to be withdrawn. 1 was only en abled to effect this object by the assistance of Captain Clark of the 12th, who called upon his company to assist me. The gal lant fellows went off" in the utmost order at a walk the while receiving a most ter rible fire entirely concentrated on them. Antl here I must beg leave particularly to mention the gallant conduct of Capt. Clark. Immediately on discovering the enemy, I commenced" firing grape: but owing to orders having been given to destroy the barricade, only four rounds of grape were carried forward. I begged some of the in fantry lying under the parapet to go to the limbers "and bring some grape, but none would go. Capt. Clark came from the extremity of the bridge, and volunteered to go himself and bring them. Whilst doing so, he was wounded. A braver or a more gallant officer never lived."

On Thursday night last, the Thalian Association opened the Wilmington Theatre fur the first time this season. The pieces presented were Speed the Plough" and Hunting a Turtle." The audience wa- the largest and most in telligent one which we remember having seen in Wilmington on a similar occasion. The Theatre has been very much repaired anil the scenery has also been much in creased and embellished. The wardrobe of the company, too, has received large additions. The two pieces presented on Thursday evening, were, to use the techni cal phrase, extremely well d rested: Of the performance we believe we speak the opinion of the whole audience, when we say that it was highly respectable in its character, and would have done credit to any stage inthe country. We are really pleased that our talented young townsmen have applied themselves to this innocent and interesting amusement, in such a man ner as to ensure for their Association the respect and applause of the votaries of Thai ia. 'ilmington Journal. American Papers iv Mexico. 0:ie of the immediate results of any great achievement of our armies in Mexico is the establishment of a newspaper in or near the place where such achievements have been performed. This gives QUfrarmy and soldiers a very great advantage-overall armies of ancient or mordern times, by enabling them to be their own trumpeters. Our heroic boys are not left to the doubt ful and too often incomplete testimonial to their merits ami valor which are. crowd ed into a brief and dry despatch, but thev carry about with them their Homers, Xen ophons, and Thucydides, in the shape of some printers and exeditors, who, as soon as the. fighting subsides, throw aside their muskets, and hunt up a few tvpe antl a few- reams of paper, which they soon apply to ; the useful purpose of letting their friends in particular, and the world in general, know w hat they have done. X. O. Delia- We SriT upon tuk English Charity. r- Cordially, eagerly, thankfully, we agree with the Enirlish i lines in this one respect -there ought to be no alms for Ireland. It is an impudent proposal antl ought to be rejected with scorn and contumely. We are sick of this eternal be:2irir. If but one voice in Ireland should be raised against it, that voice shall be ours. To morrow, to-morrow, over broad England, Scotland and Wales, the people who de vour our substance from year to year are to offer up their canting thanksgivings for our "abundant harvest," and fling us cer tain crumbs ami crusts of it for charity. Now, if our church-going Englishman will hearken to us ; if we maybe supposed, in any degree, to speak for our countrymen. wc put up our petition tnus ; K.eep your alms, ye canting robbers button your pockets upon the Irish plunder that is in them and let the Dcggingoox pass on. Neither as loans nor alms will we take that which is our own. We spit upon the benevolence that robs us ot a pounil and flings back apenny in chanty.

Newbern Jlepub- ican. THE MEXICAN WAR. 77c Opinions in the Army. In our intercourse with the several dis tinguished and intelligent officers who have lately arrived in this city from the seat of war, we have endeavored to ascer tain, as accurately as possible, the opinion which prevail among the officers and the army in general, in regard to the proper mode of conductingor concluding the war. The prevalent we might almost say the unanimous opinion in the arm' so we gather from conversations with these offi cers is in favor of the occupation of the country. This opinion began to force, itself into the minds of our officers after the army left Puebla, and it has acquired such strength since the occupation of the Capi ta, that but few can now be found who dissent from it. Many officers who early in the war were favorable to the project of Mr Calhoun, Gen. Taylor, and other dis linguirlud gentlemen, of occupying a forti fied line and abandoning all the rest of the territory, have changed their views, and are now strong advocates of occupation. Gen Scott has submitted his views in full to the President, and has suggested, tor the consideration of the Government, three modes of settling our difficulties with Mexico : 1st. To hold the City of Mexico and the other chief cities, ofthe Republic ; to take possession of the mines and public lands, and from them, as well as from other sources of revenue, to raise the means of paying the expenses of the war, and at the same time to occupy all the ports and sea board, and collect the imposts on all arti cles introduced into Mexico from foreign countries, until t'e expenses of the war are defrayed and an honorable peace is concluded. Silly. To occupy and hold a certain line, in tl.e manner suggested by Gen. Taylor, Mr Calhoun and others Sdly. To occupy the whole country un der martial law, until peace is concluded. .V. ().
