Correspondence of the Dispntcb.
Washington Citv, June 3rd, 1852.
The Democratic Association of this citj is ma
king extensive preparations to bold a great " ratifi
cation meeting" on Tuesday night. This meeting,
I learn, would be held on the same evening of the
day on which the nomination is made, were it not
deemed impolitic by the friends of Mr. Maury, (the
Democratic candidate for Mayor) As I have be
fore stated, there are three candidates for this of
fice : two Whijs and one Democrat Washington
is a Whig city by a large majority. But Mr. Maury
being extensively and favorably inown, and, with
al, a wealthy man, and largely interested in the
prosperity of the city, will, it is believed, receive
not only the entire support of his own party, but
that ot a very respectable portion of the Whig
party. Indeed, his friends are betting two to one
on his election. Monday next wll decide the con
teat. And, with the view of allaying, as much as
possible, all oolitical excitement, the proposed De
mocraiio ratification meeting will not come off until
after the Mavor's election Is determined. Our De
mocratic friends have always been considered
S;at tacticians, and this move, among other?, we
nk, evidences the fact.
Our citizens are, just now, so much engrossed
with the approaching municipal election, that
scarcely a thought seems to be given to the proceed
ings of the Baltimore Convention. The truth is,
our most excitable and fiery politicians are in Bal
timore, and we are now in the full enjoyment of
temporarv quiet and repose, so far as regards na
tional politics.
Yesterday, a rumor was current on our streets,
the import of which was, that Messrs. Wise and
McMullin, of Virginia, had been engaged in a per
sonal rencontre in one of the hotels in Baltimore.
Thi« turns out to be not entirely correct. But lam
credibly informed that a serious and irreconcilable
misunderstanding ha» arisen between the two, in
consequence, it is said, of the latter gentleman' re
tailing a certain private conversation, held with : n
other, in reference to the anticipated course of Mr.
Wise in the Convention. Hard words were freely
exchanged, and language of no doubtful import
passed, it ie said, between the two We are almost
hourly either favored or annoyed with the most im
probable and aosurd rumors purporting to be tele
graphic despatches from Baltimore.
I will not tire the patience of your readers by
enumerating them Should anything import i.t
come, in an authentic shape, I will telegraph you at
the earliest moment.
Mr Clay is no better ; on the contrary, he con
tinues to sink, and in all human probability will
aoon pass from the stage of existence.
At about 12 o'clock, to-dav, the Baltimore Con
vention commenced balloting; about every half
hour we art receivii g the result of each successive
ballot. L'p to two o'clock (as I write) Cass leads.—
Comment is useless now, as the fiu«l result will
doubtless be known ere this reaches you. We are
in a fever of excitement to know who will be the
The weather, for the past few day*, has been op
pressively hot. The thermometer, tbia morning,
at 11 o'clock, ranged 95 deg in the shade. Oar
markets are plentifully ouppiicd with strawberries
and cherries; the former may be bought at from 8
to 16 cents, accoroiDg to quality; cherries from 8
to 10 cents. We hare an abundant supply of sea
sonable vegrtables, also, at reasonable prices.
P S. At the time of closing this (5 P. M ) we
have received the result of the Bth ballut, viz
Cass, 113: Buchanan, Btf; Douglas, o4 ; scattering,

Douglas stock is rising. It is, however, impossi

With a Healing Balm we cmc m great
rpHE action of thU Liniment upon the human
X organization i* truly wonderful its volatile,
penetrating, toothing and healing properties diffuse
themselves to the very bones. It enters into the
circulation of the blood, gives a new Impulse to
the whole nervous system, stimulates the absor
tents and secretions, and thus assists nature to
throw off and rid heraelf of any diseased action of
the nervous chords or ligaments, making it equally
anulicable to sores of any kind, rheumatism, or
abundant reasons of its great efficacy in so many
different diseases. While* it is perfectly harmless
to healthy flesh, skin or bone, it acts upon scientific
principles and FIXED LAWS OF THE CREA
TION. The large number of cases in which this
Liniment has proved it 3 great value in the short
time it has been in Virginia, is sufficient to give the
greatest confidence, that its virtues are incompara
ble in the cure of Rheumatism, bruises, Sprains,
Burns, Wounds, Swellings, Broken and Caked
Breast, old Sores, Slc.
Testimony from the South.
Savannah, Feb'y sth, 1852.
Having been afflicted with acute Rheumatism for
some time, and tried aeveral of the most popular
medicines of the day, also under medical advice,
and received no relief until I tried the MUSTANG
LINIMENT, and much to my surprise, I received
immediate reliek; and 1 am confident, that by a
few more applications of this truly celebrated Lini
ment, I shall be entirely cured; and I advise all who
are afflicted, to try the Mexican Mustang Liniment
(Signed,) A. FREEMAN.
Ship Masters, Read!
New Orleans, Feb'y 21st, 1851.
I take pleasure in givi ig my testimony in favoi
of the MUSTANG LINIMENT. I have used it in a
great many cases with satisfaction. I would par
ticularly recommend it to the notice of MASTERS
OF VESSELS, of all kinds, as surpassing all
other external applications within my knowledge
for Pains, Bruises, Cuts, Burns. Sores and Rheuma
tism, <tc. die. LEWIS WARDEN,

An Editorial Article
From the Savannah Republican ot December 20th,
1851, written by A.K.Moore, Esq., recommends
the Mustang Liniment ic the following manner:
This medicine is now offered to the people of
Georgia for the first time. Our personal experience
enables us to recommend this Liniment to the
public with confidence, as we have felt the good
effects upon a sprained a',tele, which received great
benefit trom one application, and has been almost
cured by the occasional use lor a week.
Sore ol 40 years' Standing Cured.
Pine Valley, Miss., Dec. 25th, 1851.
A. G. Bragg &. Co.: The 9 dozen bottles Mustang
Liniment left five weeks ago, aie all sold-. Sena
me 30 dozen immediately. The Liniment has per
formed some wonderful cures here. Doctor W
W. Nevel says it is the greatest Liniment in the
world. He has a negro girl almost deaf and blind.
His remedies did her no good. A few applications
of the Liniment cured her entirely. It is also curing
James Coy's leg, which has been a running sore for
forty years. It has not failed in a single case so
far as it has been tried.
We only ask a fair trial of this valuable Lini
ment in the cure of Strains, Bruises, Cuts, Galls,
Scratches, Sweny, Pole, Evil, Fistula, Big Head,
Sjiavin, Ring Bone, Wind Galls, Cracked Heels, or
any wound, stiffness, or enlargement of bone or
inuncle in horses. We have many certificates to
those cures, and, therefore, am confident it will
give perfect satisfaction, and effect all we recom
mend for it.

I have used Dr. Duval's Family Anti-
Spasmodic in a variety of cases, with the most
astonishing success, such as Crapulous diseases,
Flatulent at d Bilious Colics, and in one instance, in
the most dangerous of Colics, known cemmonlyas
the ilial passion. Besides, I have used it in Chol
era Morbus, Diarrhcßa, Dysentery, Dysmenorrhea,
and Menorrhagia, and also in those diseases whert
there is an undue balance of nervous energy, such
as Hysterical Hypochrondiac, &c. In a word, I have
used it in many cases, under my care, when an
anodyne or anti spasmodic was called for, and )
do, with much confidence in its value, recommend
it to the public as the most certain and safe Family
Medicine of its class. [Signed]

C. M. Jackson, at the German Medicine Store,
120 Arch street, Philadelphia.
Their power over the above diseases is not ex
celled—il equalled—by any other preptwation in the
United States, as the currs attest, in many cases af
ter skilful physicians had tailed.
Tnose Bitters are worthy the attention of inva
lids. Possessine great virtues in the rectification of
diseases of the Liver and leaser glands, exercising
the most searching powers in weakness and affec
tions of the digestive organs, they are, withal, safe,
certain and pleasant.
Charles Robinson, Esq., Easton, Md., in a letter
to Dr. Jackson, January 9,1830, said—
"My wife and myselt have received more benefit
from your medicine than any other we have ever
taken tor the Dyspepsia andjLiver disease."
"The Tenth Legon." published at Woodstock,
Va., January 10,1850, said—
"A Great Medicine."
" We have uniformly refrained from recommend/
ing to the public any of the various Patent Medi
cines ot the day. unless thoroughly convinced of
their value. Among those we consider worthy of
notice is the German Bitters, invented by Dr. Hoof
land, and prepared by Dr. Jackson, in Ph'ladelphia
One instance in particular, in which the superior
virtues of this medicine has been tested, has fallen
under our observation During the last summer, a
son of Mr. Abraham Crabill, of this county, was
ve-y seriously afflicted with Liver Complaint, and
after trying in ?ain various remedies, he purchased
a bottle of the Bitters, and after using it, was so
much relieved of his distressing malady, that he
procured another bottle, and is restored entirely to
The "Philadelphia Saturday Gazette," the best
family newspaper published in the United States
The editor saysoi
"It is seldom that we recommend what are
termed Patent Medi :ines to the confidence and pa
tronage of our readers; and, therefore, when we re
commend Dr. Hooflland's German Bitters, we wish
It to be distinctly understood that we are not speak
ing of the nostrums of the day, that are noised
about for a brief period and then forgotten after it
has done its guilty race of mischief, but of a medi
cine long established, universally prized, and which
has met the hearty approval of the faculty itself."
This medicine has attained that high character
which is necessary for all medicines to attain to in
duo'counterfeits to put forth a spurious article at
the risk of the lives of those who are innocently
ts the Mark* mf the Genuine.

tify, that on or about the lbth day ot Oct', ber 1847
I was attacked with a very severe pain m the lower
part ot the abdomen, which lasted but a tew ma
utes, and moved into tae lett hip, and continued
exceedingly painlul lor about live dßya, during
which time I had a very light lever. At the endcf
that time the Sever ceased, and the pain abated for
a day or two, after which it again returned, and
was much worse than before. During all this time
I was under medical treatment From a short time
after I was taken, I was unable to walk or sit up ;
the hip in which the pain was 6o bad commenced
rising, until some time in January, when it burst,
and a number ol pieces of bone came out— as many
as twenty, at least. Some of the pieces were ttiree
fourths ot an inch long. Some time after to is, a
hard knot appeared on my light hip, also one on
my right wrist, and one on my leg, below my knee.
1 continued to get weak and worse, and pam made
its appearance in my right shoulder, and would
move in my breast and stomach. At this time all
persons gave me up to die. A physician then told
me that, as a last remedj, 1 had bettor use Mr. Bail *
Fluid Extract of Sarsaparilla. Alter ttie use ef tha
second bottle, the knot on my wrist commenced
getting soft. I opened it, and a day or two alter, a
piece of bone came out. My wrist ioon got well,
and I ccntinued to gain strength. After 1 used the
third bottle, I co-!d get no more for some four
weeks, after which time 1 succeeded in getting threa
more bottles. Alter using tha three las't bottles, tha
knot on my hip became solt; it was opened, and
some corruption ran out, together with a small
piece ot bone, and the sure soon got well, and the
knot entirely disappeared. The sore on my leg also
opened, and a piece of bone came out. 1 continued
the use ot the Sarsaparilla until 1 Used twelve bot
tles, and am now entirely well, and able to do daily
labor. It may seem strange to some, but 1 will tiers
state that, during the summer of 1849, I coughed
up three pieces of bone, which can now be seen at
the lesidence of my uncle, Thomas Neal. where I
now live, and it any persons doubt this statement,
1 will be happy to converse with them, it they will
call on me.

Can the reader believo, alter reading the descrip
tion of the above numerous cures, that there is soil
a few human beings suffering with disease that re
fuse to give Bull's Sarsapariila a trial It is indeed
hard to believe, but nevertheless it is too true.
What kind of testimony would it take to convince
the lew remaining disbelievers, that Bull's medi
cine will do more even than it prom.scs; The
Doctor could produce another auc another ewe
performed by his medicine; but it the c**'i pub
lished above will not convince uie sceptics', it .4
useless to produce any more, and, indeed, it would
costa fortune to publish the many certificates that
have been showered on Dr. Bull. The largest mam
moth sheet in America would not contain even Ue
names ot those cured, let alone full statements of
their cases
