Alabama Kitcfvui.—The Montgomery (Alab.) State

the returns arc nearly all official.and with one exception

that in til* lav war with Mexico Cofmel Steptoe acted
a most dtsUnguisbed part—winning by his o-*iLintrv a
grade in tire service which has rarely been attained at
so-early an age. The complum:;- design ! is ren i- :*d
more appropriate by liie fact, that Col. Neptuc be ng a

Slates. We have seen the s'ronge.st assurances fr mi sev

the brilliant success which awaits, our friends in the

We put down the vote of Pennsylvania tlieref ire, as

, inspired by enthusiasm,than they are at the present time.
For the rest we dismiss all fears to the winds.
Our prospects, indeed, are brightening every day ir,

•t* great weight of. character, who have gone from the
M big to iho Democratic ranks. Among these is the I
gentleman named in the Knoxville Standard of the1

Williams was a Whig—a friend of Air. Clay ; but be ;
was also the friend of Texas—the friend of the Mexican j
war—a friend of the rights and honor of his country; and
when lie saw the \\ higs themselves throwing Air. Clay j
overboard, he thought it high time to leave their ranks, t
and to c » opiate with the Democratic party. We wel- j
come him to uur ranks.

1' h'more’s letters are working a powerful revolution I
amang the reading and thinking classes in North Caro
lina. N • enthusiasm prevails among the Whigs, nor
can the area wire pullers arouse them to energy. We
see in the excellent Democaftic auxiliary, the Mecklen-1
burg Jeffersonian, allusion made to a truly mournful •
article in a late Raleigh Register, deeply ‘Teorretting to i
learn by a communication just received from a friend” I
residing in one oi the distant counties, that “there is not
enough of energy and activity among the Whigs of that
•sec?ion.” Rut h >w can energy or action be anywhere
infns'ul i it . a party that has no principles to conlen I for?
Cannot Fillmor -’s letters fire up a proper spirit lor the
Whig ticket in th it quarter?
\\ e learn, indeed, from several quarters that the odds
are turning decidedly against the Whigs in that State.
We received the following cheering letter from Geor
gia by last utglii’s mail:
Macon, Ga. October 13,1848.
“Yuu have already had the pleasure of announcing the
late victory of ilie sterling Democracy of tins Stateover
their Federal opponents. \Ve have carried the State by
a popular majority of several hundred. We say this is
a victory, because the Taylor party of spontaneous com
bustion were certain of carrying the State by .thousands.

her electoral vote -to Caw sud Rutitrr, T his is the opin

t .fit bin lor a -are r of usefulness and hap ine-s. With this
vie v he chose the Legal profession, and was qualifying him

mental r. iltire, for society, social intercourse and intellec-j

cr* d duties of iricn lship, founded o i km trod m-cling, cement
ed by virtue and stre*.gthe«ied by time ever yielded new and
itVTca-ing j -vs and p'easures to his warm and generous heart. |
Tiie lust n •: f hi* f if - was the faithtul discharge ct a simple

Thus gifted, guided and directed —having youth, health. I

life. B it how did rent was the destiny that awaited him, in •
the eternal purp >se of Him wh) creates and can destroy.
Let his ex.a u de encourage us, and may our advancement ]

Dear Sir—Having been afflicted with a most dislrrs«ing
humor for many years past, and having used every means that
afforded the remotest probability of relief, I was at last induc

satisfied that I have received more benefit from the u-c el
them, than from all the medicines I have beret. »f. rcDkvn.
I therefore take pleasure in recommending the Pills to 11

I do, that they act directly upon the blood, and by their pu
