Rowand’s Tonic Mixture,
"^MTARRANTED a perfect and lasting cure for Ague nnd
v v Fever,and a valuable remedy in Jaundice, Dysentery, I
Heart-Hum, etc.—
From Or. Anion R. Smith, Northern Liberties, Fhilnd.
Dear Sir,—1 congratulate you on vuiir good fortune in i
presenting to the use of the victims of Fever und Ague, -mb
a blessing as your Tonic Mixture lias most fully proved it
self. It is speedily becoming the favorite remedy with all
who appreciate its usefulness, mol ere long, will be esteemed
as one of the most important discoveries of the age. Fever
nnd Ague has hitherto bullied the skill of the most eminent
of Practitioners, and even now thev deem it presumption to
promise morn than temporary aid. Your Tonic mixture, how* !
ever, seems to have a io-vv and peculiar power to arrest the ,
disease, and to revive nnd re-establish the balance of harmo
ny and health. I hope you will persevere to extend the in* j
dnonce of the medicine, and that the public will cstimulcyour ;
generosity. Yours, respectfully.
A. it. SMITH, M. D. i
Extract of a Letter from Or. Stevens, Itnrks f'o. Fa. ,
Hir,—I brought home with me during the autumn of 1331,
the first quantity■ of your Mixture, which 1 heard highly ex
tolled as a permanent cure for Fever nnd Ague; a disease,
which ut that period prevailed very extensively in our coun
try. My neighbors nnd patients hud become so accustom- i
ed to the use of Harks and Quinine, Are. that they censed to
render them any service, and they readily consented to make •
A trial of your medicine. I believe that there is at this time, I
hundreds who would cordially testily to the benefit 4 they
have received from ^ts employment, and would gladly aid to
spread a knowledge of it* peculiar v irtues. There has been
very little of the Ague in the neighborhood since the introdiic- i
tion ut the Ionic Mixture, which is maitilv attributed to the
very general use of this medicine. J'. I. STEVENS.

J®* CRliVTIlVt; Kxccuietl at this Office with
unparalleled reputation w hieh Peters's Pills Imvc
■ acquired as a Ifedfat/ Rlettoratfoe, i- the moat iinquea*
tiouabla proof llmt cun be given, of their immense importance
to the ailbcn*il, in almost every class of diseases. The num
ber of letters received from Paticnls recovered through their
means, is really prodigious, mid the complaints which they
have cured are almost as vuried as they an* numerous. Hut
Mill there arc some in which thev an* more especiullv bene
ficial than in others ; and among dio.se may he named the too
often fatal complaints of the stomach and bowels, such as
( hotic. Flatulence and Indu'cation, for which they arc not
only a certain, hut uii immediate care.
It is well known that from the disarrangement of the
stomach and bowels, urises lime-tenths of all the maladies of
adult uml declining life : that this is the foundation of
flatulency, apnamodie patns, tn/li treat ton, Iona of appetite, \e.
ami that tiiose in their tin n give birth to Ihopny, Liter t'om
plaint. ('onaumption and habitant lotcncaa of apinta ; there
lore Peters' Pills heiiig the very lu st medicine which has
ever been discovered for the incipient diseases of the intes
tines, are necessarily the surest pivv entaliv ch of those dread
ful, ami also general disorders which embitter mature life
iml drag so many millions to untimely graves.
In speaking thus, Dr. Peters arrogates nothing to himself
that bus not been conceded by the public, lie is no needy
(pun k or unknown speculator, who conics before the world
ns Ids own herald and witness , hut is placed in a responsi
bility of situation by the patronage w hich ho has enjoyed for
v. ars. and is increasing to an extent unprecedented in the
annals of medn in**, that makes him enroful to assert noth
ing which is not borne out by the most infallible proof, nml
hen c he does not four to Is put to the tctmaiiv thing which
hi* has promised respecting his Pills.
Dr. Peters is most happy to la* able to stole on the nu
ihnrtty of« great number of regular I'llvsicimis, iliuf when v«*r
Ins vegetable Pills have been introduced, they have iiIiiiom
superseded tin adoption id mercurial 1 xpeiimcnls, for their
peculiar faculty* in swet toning the blood, and stimulating it lo
expel all noxious juices, and giving strength and tone to tin*
nerve-, prevents disease from in quiring that strength which
must be got under, if at all, In dangerous remedies.

and if ilie Secretary auwsers them wuli any fullness,
there will some miiuikahlc revelations.
Mr. Tai.i.m \m.i: signified his intention of moving
in a measure called lor by every considetation »»l jus
ticenml humanity. He will, tomorrow, introduce a
bill to nbotisli imprisonment for debt.
Mr. lit < hanan offered a resolution to instruct tin*
Column tee Ol) naval affairs to inquire into the expe
diency of constructing one or more steam vessels to
be employed as vessels of war.
Mr. Buchanan urged with great earnestness the
adoption of this resolution. He expressed Ins re
gret that the Secretary of War had not. in hisvei v
lucid and nble report, touched upon thestibjrpt whit Ii
was occupying the minds ol ail men interested hi na
val and military affairs, in Kuglaml ami I tanee.
Those two grcai n itions .ire emulous to outstrip each
oilier in converting steam vessels to the greatest *cr
vice. The use. ol them must work a material change
m the mode of naval warfare; and we would certainly
subject ourselves to great hazard, were we to engage
m war with either ol those powerful nations hi ill
I possession of the advantages derived from such ves
sels, while we were without them. Mr. Buchanan
thought it would be u severe reflection upon our
national character, if alter being the first to make a
successful application of steam m propelling vessels,
we should now tail behind the improvement of the age.
Mr. Benton seemed to think these very sensible
remarks of Mr. Buchanan would tak*the wind out
of the sails of die Military < 'ommiite, who so nc time
ago.did make arc port.—n deed 1 believe on two differ
ent occasions.—m favor of employing floating bntic ries
propelled b) steam for coast defence. He isCliair
inuu of that Committee; and h:s feat of Mr. Bn u
anan taking all the glory of this rnovment made him
bounce up veiy piomptly and remind die Senate of
what the Military Committee had done.
Mr. Buchanan with his characteristic courtesy,
admitted very freely all that was claimed for the Mil
I it try Committee.—There w.»s something more to
be done besides the construction of steam
^ h.utcr'b *, for the defence rf out long line of toast.
NVe must also have steam vessels ol war, to :'ri ,,n
! the broad ocetin—we want officers trained sn«l disci
» plined to the navigation and manigroicnt of them.

Mr It I \ KS said lie would strhitiit some of the
trasoiis for oficiing tin in, more in detail than he
had at first intended. The resolutions have sprnal
reference to errtHiii tiansatlioiis which have been
lately alleged lo have taken place bet w cell the brad of
tho Treasury Department and the President ol ihr
Bank ol the United States. For some nine pu t.
notwithstanding the long and arduous snuggle be
tween the Administration and this institution, m
mors have been pievaleni|t hat an art augvtnfttr 'bin brim
entered into by which it ha* practifnllv become the
fiscal agent ol iho (government. Dora not the whole
country recollect that the piescnt President took an
early occasion, soon after the Bank had received Ms
charter from the Ucgiabituic ol Pchhisv Ivatiia, to say
that it was the same in diameter and effect ns the
formri Bank f Did not the honorable Senator from
Pennsylvania [Mr. BrriiA.\Anj assert that it was the
same vast monopoly that had convulsed tho country
—the same thirty-five millions of capital—the same
ptesidenl — the same direciors—the same stoeklml
ders 1 We all recollect tho zeal of the honorable
Senator from South Carolina, [Mr. Calhoun,] who
has taken so diming wished a part in supporting the
fiscal schemes of the piCHcnt Administration, on the
same subject. 'I'he honorable Senator from Mishoij
i i. [Mi. Benton, ] in rcler i ing to tins instil til ion, said
that it was mote powerful that) the former Bank, and
more wicked as well as more powerful. Now, taking
the views ol the head and great pillars ofihe Admin*
istiation party into consideration, it is surptisiug that
this denounced instilmion, limic wicked and more
powerful, was ieinstated in all it.* fiscal iclatioua with
the Hovcrnuiriit. From tin* prevalence of those
report*, at the assembling of Congress, we all looked
to the report of the Secretary of the Treasury to
clear tip these subjects ; but, sir in this document,
on this matter, there appeared to he a premeditated
reserve and studied ambiguity. (longress, at it* pre
vrotis session, had authorized 11 if* sale ol (woof the
bonds nl thc United States held by the Uovernmcnt.
The Secretary should have clearly stated to Con
gress the manner in which her bad executed the
special trust confided to him ; hut it was with the
utmost difficulty, after the most minute scrutiny, that
we can find a few lines informing us that the Secre
tary has executed this duty iti accordance with the
provisions n( the law.
I» the list ol banks denominated spcci.il deposi
torics of ' Government, we aie told that spe
cial depogites are made in the Bank of the United
Stales, derived from debts due (tom banks hul liom
what banks the debts arc due, or on what
conditions the deposited aie made, the Serre
taiy is wholly silent. Ife thought tiiat am bi
gtiny of phraseology had been designedly used to
conceal Bus transaction. The public have lately
had a letter from the President ofthe Bank, in which
he comes out in bold language, w ith the air of a man
who has achieved a triumph. He tells us that ar
rangements hav»* been entered into, by which the
Government has been brought into efficient coope
ration with the Batik of tho l 'nited States ! Thai the
more distant disbursements of the Government had
been made in the notes ol the Bank — these rags, this
miserable Hash, as they have been designated by the
honorable Senator from Missouri. New, let us
confront the statements of the two high contracting
parlies. The Secretary does not led you to whom
tins hoiid was sold: the President of the Bank says
it was disposed ol to the Bank, and paid lot by tile
‘ credit to the Tie.murer ul Ihr l u« d Stairs on the
books ol the Bank. Til* Secretary ofthe Treasury
8a\ s u is a special deposit* on the books ol the B.iuU.
All these it.alters require explanation, nod the Soc
tetaiy should be glad 1 have given him the oppor
i tuoiiy.
VV.cs this a mere sale of bonds, or was it not a
scheme to reinstate the Bank in its character of fiscal
agent ol the Government ? Was not the sale a
mere form lor covering the transaction? These are
questions that concern ill* honor of the nation ; and
lull and unequivocal answer is expected. The
! public have a right in know on what terms the co
alition between the Government turd the Bank has
t.iken place—who furnishes the auxiliaries, and who
| lurm-du h the subsidies; whether the Rank has ab
cheated the throne, that it may be the power behind
the throne, gienter than the throne itself.
Mr. II. gave extracts foin the Baltimore Chronicle,
1 and other Whig papers, to prove that by an insensi
ble process, already commenced, the Bank ol the
' I nited States would, without the concurrence ol
I Congress, become llio fiscal agent nf lire flnvarn
j moot. Why, sir, this would bn a National Hank.
[ and n National Hank in it* worst form—closely allied
I " Ith tiio Khc'ciiIivo ; a Stale institution, irresponsible!
to C'migiess, ami it raspooathlr to the people. I say, if
iliis insensible proersa, already eommonced. is to bn
' consummated, it will form that vast concentration of
ilio moneyed pownr. which the President, in his
late Message speaks of with so milch alarm. If this
insensible process is to go mi, if this coalition be
tween llie (liiveinmeiit ami the Hank it to lie com
pleted, 1 will say—ns w as said til woollier •oalilton in
amithei t iniiiliy — in the iiame of my euuulry, I for
bid the bans.
Notwithstanding the many homilies we hare re

between thr fiscal alfsirs ,d ihe tiovernmeni and the

j not line now lot the purpose ofen'entig into any
debate oil the qucslbm of the .Sub-Treasury. or of
the b ink deposiu.:*. believing ih.it any argument on
these ijitcH ions would now he mil ol place. He Im
ped and believed, notwitnsinriding the ,Senator's re
in nk. tli.it he was :o lie pci muted to congratulate
himself and thefoutiny that the Senator had at Inst
become aware ol the dangeis and uiischiela arising
from a connection between the ltoveniuietit and t)i«
Hank*. He was glad lev hear the Sen ifor's remarks,
so far as they were connected with the facts, and the
only drawback to In* pleasure wan, that the gentle
man had not waited lor (acts liefoio lie drew his i .
leteners. Another remark with which lie would
now trouble the Senator, lie well remembered at
the* extra session, and at the last annual sc sunn. lie
w as repeatedly told by se veral members, that when
we utidetfnok to talk ol the dimgcis of this Uermsyl
Vania Bank ol the l S., we weie attempting to raise
a phantom ; that the Bank <d the I'.S. was dead
anil gone, and that it was an imposition on the coun
try to say tii.it there was longer any danger from that
ipi tn.'i. lie lumembcied that observations rujIi us
these tell from the Senator from Virginia liimscK,
and he was happy to find that the gentleman had
c hanged his opinions. He never was hlnitell delu
ded for a moment with legat'd to that institution;
tlie opinions that he now entertained of it were tho
same that he had always held. The Senator then
would until rally nsk, did he approve ol this connec
tion ? He would answer that lie did not know.—
He was exceedingly glad thill the Senator had of
lercd Ins resolutions of inquiry, and wished the Sen
ate and country to be put in possession of the infor
mation it called for. When that information came,
lie would be able to form n correct opinion on the
subject. He had licar‘d4 that, under the legislation
ol the last winter, the Secretary hud sold one of tho
bonds given by the Bank of the United Stales, to the
Bank itself, lie presumed* therefore, that tlietnn
necfion, as he had heard on report, gitw exclu
sivcly out of that transaction, fl tins connection
had gone further, it had been without It is knowledge,
Hud should l>e without his approbation, lie did not
undertake to say tb.it he approved of the manner io
which the bond was transferred, but he had heard
tli.it no other purchaser ot the bond w as to be found.
Il* had heard that means were found wanting to pay
the public debt, and (or tins purpose, the sale was
made in the manner it hu I been. Solar he was wil
ling to test until th« Secretary gave them the facts ;
and lie should have been much better pleased if the
Senator from Vugim.i had peimilted the call to be
answered, and the lads to be laid before them, be
fore lie dirw Ins inferences. lie was not so touch
sinptised at that course of the Senator, as at the next
step lie took; and what was that ? Why, it was to
interpret to the Senate and the country, not only tile
cause of action, hut the views and opinions of tire
President of the United States, and the Secretary of
the Tieasury,together with the policy ofthe Govern
ment, from the letter ol Nicholas Biddle, w ho has
not hitherto bet n the authority from which the ac
tion of these g* nilcmeu has been accustomed to be
judged. Il might have become authority with the
gentleman now ; but if it had, tire gentleman had
information which lie [Mr. \V.] did uot possessi
But in the heat of remark, the letter referred td
was not enough, and the comments of the Opposi
tion newspapers were ruudfe the authority for the o
pinions and policy of tin* Administration, by tlMft
honorable Senator from Vugiuta. iJo would only
observe that, when the nets and opinions of the Ad
I ministration are to be judged o( by him, it should
' not be from the comments ofthe Baltimore Chroui
1 cle.
11 did »enn to him tii.it the natural course would
I have been to have let these inquiries go lo the Sec
: retai v. and to have received his answer before com*
| mg to any conclusion with regards tolactsyet lobe
I known. If the tacts which shall be given by the
! Secretary should ptove unsatisfactory, there will be
! abundant opportunity for the Senate to express its
'disapproval; and they should do this from the facts
; before them, and not from such sources as the letter
| of Nicholas Biddle, and the comments of Opposi
i lion newspapers. In the course of his remarks, tile
Senator thought proper to refer to that portion of
I the Message of the President in which he reeem
