uf wheat had been imported, and more was
on the way to supply the deficiency. A
famine had been averted, but a war was be
ginning, and France had gone as far as honor
lierniltted to avoid n collision, but she must
now draw the sword. ' He. had no views of
aggrandizement. The days of conquest are
past, never to return.
Europe, reassured by tho moderation of

Nicholas, seemed to doubt the danger which
threatened it from the colossal power, which
bv successive encroach incuts, embraced the
N'orth and Centre of Europe, and which pos
aesses almost exclusively two internal seas,
whence it is easy for its armies and lleels to
launch forth against civilization. But its re.
cent unfounded demands in tho East has
awakened Europe. Franco has an equal in
terest with England in preventing Russian
supremacy over Constantinople, for to be
supremo in Constantinople, is to be supreme

Listen to the testimony of an eminent phy

is now universally neknowedged to be the best
in use; even members of tho medical faculty
(who arc to ofleu opposed to the use of patent
medicines,) cannot withhold their approval
of this invaluable remedy:
Lino, Stark co., Ohio, Jan. 8, 18t9.
I have used Dr. M'Lane's Worm Specific in
my private practice, and am prepared to say
that the unparalleled success with which I
hove prescribed its use, both for children nnd
adults, induces me to sny the most in its fa
vor of any specific or patent medicine ever
before brought to my notice. Tho mode of
nilministrntion, the smallnessof the dose, and
the certainty of its efficacious effects, give it,
in my opinion, a decided ndvantiigc over nny
other medicine of the kind before the public.

Then folded his arms across his breast and
breathed his last, without a stiuggle or a

In bis death his wife has lost a loving nnd

medicine is acrimonious sa4 ssstMkns to the bow

(m'pink psin and revulsion in the system as to more
thsn counterbalance the good to be derived; from
them. These fUlt produce no irritation or psin,
unlotr it arise from s previotulyiarting obstruc
tion or derangement in the bowels.. Being purely
vegetable, no harm can arise front their use te any
qusntitv ; but it I better that any medicine shena
be takeif Judiciously. Minute dfreetlons for their
use in the several diseases to which they are ap
plicable are given on the boa. Aston; the com
plaints whicbhate been speedily cured'by them, we
mav mention Liver Complaint, in its various forms
of Jaundice, Indigestion, Languor sad Ixiss or Ap

Bilious Fever, Fever and Ague Pain hi the Side
find Iiins ; for, in truth, all these are but the con
scquonre of diseased action in the Bvsr. As an
aperient, they afford prompt and sure relisf in Cos
tivencss, Piles, Colic, Dysentery, Humors, Brrof
nla and Scurvy, Colds with soreaeaa ef the body,
I h ers ami impurity ot the Wooa; M snort, any
and every case where a purgative is required.

Krvsinclas, Palpitation of the Heart, rams in tne
Hack, Stomach, and Side. They should be freely
taken in the spring of the year, to purify the blood
and prepare the system for the change of seasons.
An occasional dose stimulates the stomach and
bowels into healthy action, and restores the appe
tite and vigor. They purify ths blood, sod, by thcii
stimulant action on the circulatory system, rcno
vate the strength of ths body, and restoro th
wasted or diseased energies of the whole organism.
Hence an occasional dose is advantageous, even
though no serious derangement exists; but un
necessary dosing should never be carried too far,
as every purgative medicine reduces ths strength,
when taken to excess. The thousand cases in which
a physic is required cannot be enumerated here, but
they suggest themselves to tho reason of every
bodr ; and it is confidently believed this pill will
answer t better purpose than any thing which hat
hitherto been available to mankind. When their
