Cmliz, Ansdtt T, 1717 DE.IIOCIUITIC MASS MEETING, AT CADIZ, SEPTEMBER 5, 1844. We take great pleasure in inform- ing the Democracy of Harrison coun ty, that there will be a GRAND RAL LY of the ENTIRE DEMOCRACY w Harrison county, at uaaiz, on Thursday, the 5th of September, 1844. COL. DAVID TOD, the Democratic candidate for Gover nor ot Ohio, will be with us on that occasion, for certain, and invitations will be extended to HON. WILLIAM ALLEN, HON. JOHN BROUGH, and many other distinguished speak ers, whose names will be announced hereafter in largo bills, as well as in the Sentinel For the Cadiu Smtintt, THE LATE COOJV FARCE. Ma. Editor Inasmuch as you were not pres ent, on Thursday evening last, to witness jhe re turn of the Cadiz Whig DelegaiiVn f oin Siou benville, I take the l.berty to address a few lines 1ij'ou, and through you to the readers of the Cadiz Sentinel, to lot the people throughout the county know, something about the beauties of Wbiggery in the town of Cadiz. It is well known that the coons, for some time past, have been using eveiy e3brt to get up an excitement in polities, in order to awaken and arouse the drooping spirits of their sinking party vainly hoping to stir up the spirit and enthu siasm of '40 knowing that whiggery flourishes best when the nation is convulsed with political agitation. Public meetings have been announ ced by their party presses, whig stumpers impor ted from abroad, and lies wholesale and without number put forth to their auditors. The pas sions and prejudices cf the people have been appealed to, by exhibiting and making frequent mention of the emblems of whiggery, and false issues hard been made in regard to the great questions of the Tariff, the Banks, and the An nexation of Texas unsuccessfully attempting to array the people and interests of the North against those of the South. And who hn.s not witnessed the pitiful scene of the Whig Band, on the eve of a whig meeting, assembled at the corner of the public square, playing some spright ly airs, for the purpose of attracting a crowd, that whiggery might thereby bo furnished with a reasonable number of persons to carry on the meeting? The whigs are aware that their num bers are becoming more and more thinned at each succeeding meeting, by desertions from their ranks, and by the lnkcwarmuess of the honest, thinking portion of their party to con tribute their influence and support to elevate a blackleg, a duellist, a traitor, a perjured, bank bought Federalist in the person of Homy Clay, to the Prosidencv: hence the necessity of re sorting to such means to keep up a false show of the zeal and enthusiasm of whiggery! After a number of boys and some half a dozen of the "sable sons of Congo" have been gathered out of curiosity and anxiety to know what is going on, the Band escorts them into the Court House, where they ate addressed by a man called " peel-leg Jake,'1'' alias, " that same old coon," or somo other person who is able la con-hide his mamma, a few death groans are offered by way of applause, and the people are dismissed, and the next thing that meets your eye is a long ed itorial article in on6 of the coon sheets, purport ing to be a description of the immense crowd and enthusiasm of the meeting, headed with the bold caption w Tremendous out-pouhixg of the Whigsa real sorL-sxmREii!" And this is the way they intend to convince the weak and wavering of the popularity of Henry Clay! Oh, trumpery oh, coons! Finding their exertions of uo avail, a proposi tion is gotten up by the young federal wiseacres of Cadiz, to attend tbe Whig Mass Meeting at Stoubenvillc, and that invitations be extended to uch of the whig females as might feel disposed to overstep tho bounds of female duty and pro priety, to accompany them. A week's talk and bustle preparing carriages, bauners, badges, &.c brought them to tho hour ot starting, whxh they did at 2 o'clock, on the morning of the 31st ult., Of tho immodesty and indecorum of females coming out publicly and participating in party politics, by speech-making, cheering from doors and windows, and coins twenty-five miles to at lend and mingle in a drunken coon carousal, it te not my intention to speak, on account of the re pect and forbearance I hold for the gentlersex; but let the remorse ot a smitten conscience teach thoso persons, who proposed and prevailed on tbenj so to do, how to conduct themselves better hereafter, - - On the evening of tho 1st instant, (he time for the expected return of the Cadiz Delegation, a number of persons assembled at the coiner of Market and bleubenville streets, to witness what was called the "arrival of the caravan!" All! eyes were directed to the cast, and at length ii was announced that the Delegation was in sight formed in procession, with flags unfurled mid banners hoisted, "Far off their coming shines;" and about two dozens of boys and negroes went forth to meet them, and escorted them into town. As they approachod the crowd, a dark, dingy flag was run up the poplar polo, and three cheora were given for Clay aud Frelinghuysen. The Band wagon was filled with about a dozen sleepy coons, who tried to look cute as usual. Immedi ately behind it, wag seen seated in a buggy by the side of a female, a thine in pantaloon, with a body and two arms, a head without brains, Hgut boots on, a white handkerchief dangling fom a pocket, and a whip and lines in his hands! The sight of this extraordinary personage was jsot moro wonderful than the fact of his safe re turn. For, from the noise, preparation and ex treme anxiety lobe off, manifested by him for eonis days previous to his departure to Steuben in consequence of being appointed leader f4 tho Delegation by the Clay Club, it was thought that he would not reach the Ohio river; but that the steam would rise so high nn to col- Jlappe a flue, an Lis physical tjpiler woull bjitit,; and produce a spontaneous combustion of mor tality! INcxt in the rtar followed eighteenth nineteen carrir-ges with fligs, which looked quite well. Several of the youne men iu these car riages were blue badges, iu order, na doubt, to! dlsting-iishtLeuwelves as advocates in heart and principle of the doctrines of the blue-light, Hart ford Convention federalists. It was thought that a black cockake for each would have mads the exhibition complete! At the rear end of the proccss.ou was a two-horse wagon loaded with about a tlozeu sickly-looking voung coons- -the smallest cf all small fry. Thev had been se lected for the occasion, as the choice spirits of tne v,au;z ioon uiee viub, whose particular office, as their name imports, was to create fun and laughter by singing coon songs. This, I sdouiu judge, nicy were well calculated to do at home or abroad; for who could look upon such a ridiculous picture as thev made in the Club was?- on without laughing, if he felt disposed to ridi cule, or without feelinss ol mortification and pi ty foe the moral depravity of youth, if ho thoiisht for a moment on their meagre, licentious and de- Oauched appearance ? 1 hey had been exposed to a shower of rain, during the afiernoon, which made their clothes stick drinpiup-ly close tolhci bodies; and from observation, one would not doubt, that they were equally well soaked with something stronger within! lor, as they moved along sinning, or rather attempting to sinr "Oh, Polk ! Polk and Dallas are a first rate yoke," their heads reeled ana tottered fore and aft, like a tilt-hammer, or a young chicken dying of the gapes Tho procession moved down Market street to Gimlet Hill returned passed upOhio street crossed to Main, and moved slowlv to the cast In tho mcant'me, the Democrats hod hoisted their fi.g, and as the wings approach the tall, ma- jestic young hickory, the Democratic flig it bore atoli, waved proudly and triumphantly m the gen tie breeze of even. The piocessiun on reach iigthe little poplar pole a second time, slacked tackle, and drew up at tue corner of the public squaie in front of the Court House, where they were addressed from the stone wall by John A B ngham. His remarks were principally inten ded to operate against the Cadiz Sentinel, which he said " was controlled by a band of black guards." Now, it is an old maxim that " dirty sayings always come from dirty persons," and such a person as his hard phtases depicted out, I should have judged him to be, even hud I not known him to be. branded as a base, licentious blackguard before. It was thought by many he was robbing himself of hard names, and making a dreadful sacrifice of well earned titles! Won der if this Johnny A. is tho same truckling tool, who, in the fall of 1842, was threatened to be made tho object or centre of attraction for a largo portion of" rotten eggs with dead chickens in 'em," for blackguarding the citizens of New Philadelphia? Wonder if this is the same John ny A., who was promised a free passage out of! town on a rail, by the citizens of Dover, for a like offence, and only prevented their putting the threat into execution, by changing his wherea bouts in time to save his bacon? Wonder if this is tha same Johnny A., who, in political debate at Port Washington, last fall, writhed, frothed and foamed, like a fiend from Pluto's darkest re gions, in consequence of being flayed alive by Jamss Matthews the Congressional Representa tive of that District? Mr. Bingham, having lost all the confidence and respect of the people of'! J uscarawas county, returns to Harrison, to vom it forth his federal slang to the citizens of Cadiz. Would it not be well for Johnny A. to take ar other six-day trip to the State of Maryland, be fore tho fill election, and stump it for the coons by passing himself offas'ihe "Buckeye stage driver!n Surely if the example of Boar, the " Buckeye Blacksmith," was worthy of imitation in 18-10, it is worthy of further imitation now! Afier Mr. Bingham closed, the crowd disper sed, each coon, no doubt, returning to his own fireside with feelings of mortification and regret, at the foolish trip and display they had made. Thus closed tho scene sic transit gloria whig- gery! L-Y, 16. For the Cadis Sentinel. J. 4. Bingham's Monodraiuatic Farce indescribable. Wc have seen repeated notices in somo of our eastern papers, of the gravity with which Henry Placido when he nets Bumbastcs Ftirioso hangs his boots upon the tree in token of defiance to all the world, as a thing infinitely amusing. It is said he performs the solemn foolery of the scene, with an air of mock heroism that vastly increa ses its effect upon the tisible muscles of his au dience. But in whatever esteem Placide may heretofore have been held, as tho best actor of such parts on tho stage, he issurely far surpassed by cue who has recently appeared on another theatre, in our immediate vicinity. The Bom bastes of Placide, we think, would certainly sink into tameness if compared with tho Bombasts of John A. Bingham, Lsq. . All who relish the superlative in burlesque ought to witness this gentleman's noxt appearance on the stone wall before our court house. Should he a second timo be called upon to address "a masculine feminine or femeniiie masculine" traveling whig Fandango, under what Carlyle would in his moro graphic language term full 'fan furonade." ' Tho performance referred to took place last Thursday evening before a pretty considerable audience, who testified their opprobatioii in all tho usual modes tf thealrick and whig applause. We do not know precisely what to term the entertainment, whether tragedy, comedy or his tory, pastoral, pastoral-comical, historical-comical historical-pastoral, tragical-historical, tragical comical, comical-historical, scene indivisible, or poem unlimited. 1 nere is no designation in any catalogue, that wo havo ever seen, that will ex actly meet this curious monoconiick-drama: and therefore, we name it tho "inonodramatw farce indescribable. It is lo be regretted, that it could not have been so devised, as to have affor ded a part to somo others, that have since mani fested an over-weening anxiety to figure, that were then compelled to play the mutes and au dience to the swelling act. If the pieco could have been moulded somewhat after the fashion of CoIUds's "ode on the passions,'" there was nn old Gentleman of the Town, that then through two days fretting and chafing was eminently qual ified to personate Anger, as there are few who can blow a blast "so loud and so dread" on the war denouncing trumpet. But no far as any thing or this passion manifested . itself right out, Mr. Mathews F. Mallernee,'.my Landlord in specks, was equally qualified and could have doubled and performed capitally both Anger and Revenge. His "eyes o fire" and "withering looks," with occasional sputterings merited some praise even as it was. 1 he piece however was evidently got up in haste, and was so arranged as to admit of but one prominent actor. It was cast in the form of a monologue or one speech, entrusting tho whole performance to John A. Bingham, Esq., in the character known to the legal profession as the communis rixatrix, in which she frenzied with anger and in her rage, breaks forth in railing a gainst some of the boys tor having taken some unjiiijiifialilo privileges with her daughters' And' - the piacA was must fitly selected of all in Town for representing the grand mock-he roicul, tragical-comical, Bombast ical, Farce indescribable. In order to get a Lint idea of the scene, let it be understood that the "Cadiz Whig Baud," with a considerable retinue of young men and young women iu some, twenty buggies, with a flay floating in the breeze" from each one, after two day's absence, ell the way to Steubenville and back, with the flying colors in furtherance ol the glorious cause, the promotion ol their "Har ry" are about making their debut into town. The B ind lead, fan-taronading and piping to pace and time, while the rear is driven up by a two horse coal waggon in the bed of which are seated some dozen of boys; which they denomi nated a choir of angers, hoarsely cbaunting in sorry concordance the most lugubrious doggeral. Having cut a circle around a square of the town. they were rounded near the ''poplar pole," and immediately adjacent the stone wall some thiiiff after the manner of the 'grand entry of a Circus, though coutrary to custom in this the Clown camo foremost. Take note: This part of the grand display was under the immediate command of my Landlord in specks, whose mtre pid d aring would have won him imperishable honors in days of Chivalry. Sancho's lilt at the wind mills was no touch to his! Suddenly una voce they vociferate Bingham! Bingham! Bing ham! He soon takes tho stand, all female eyes arc turned eviucirg as they peer out on him the thought, "we ate now to receive in living lan guage in symphonious strains and s lverftones the golden thanks and heart felt gratitude rarely ex pressed; for the loan of our countenances and out ten thousand smiles that have sweaicncd the labours in the "glorious cause." But astonishment soon pervades all. Ho beg'nsaud for the period of half an hour strained to the key of the Bom bastical, fi:c, firo-astical, fire-to-fire, on tho Hy perbole. Fair Ladies! Detraction bathed in ihe sosspool of licertiousness and drunk with thestygean wateis, has breathed h's ribald bieath ignnst you. Calumny his twin Brother and ever allied has dipped his pen in ihe infernal black aud in your absence has been busily inditing li s umpire strains in derogation ot your unblcimsli cd characters. Some invidious wretch the incar- nation of the twain while you were away on your labours has endeavored to aspeise your tan fame and the fairest act of your lives. The ma king1 aud presenting of vender flag to the gallant Bind by calling it a 'fl.msey gift, a bold adven ture; and has heralded it forth, to the pumic through the filthy and mendacious columns of the Sentinel. And that over the signature of the letter S. No doubt it was the initial letter of his real name About ibis lime the Ladies looked somewhat frightened, and scemod as though they thought their lepulations were sullied and some of them locked at the undersigned, and appeared to be ready to exclaim: O! Sharon! what have you been saying about me. But one thing was certain, it is the initial let ter of his real character and that is Scoundrel. So three cheers for the Ladies of Cadiz, and then iwo cheers in the muddy groan, for Peppard am! Sharon. Thus indignation so muguiloquently expressed evaporates like the "bodiless enjoy ment'' described in Manned, Born nnd dying With the blest tone that made it." J. SHARON. Thnt sentence was made use of by the speaker in From the A'. O. Commercial Bulletin Cilt EAT mtlT.VIiV AND TEXAS. A curious correspondence has taken place, and has been published by authority of the lexan Government, between Captain Elliott, the Bri tish Charge d' Afliiirs in Texas, and Hon. An son Jones, the Texan Secretary of Slate. Ihe concluding letter ol this correspondence shows : 1st. The extreme anxiety of the British Gov ernment with regard to the negotiations pending between the United States and Texas, and its desire to thwart them. 2d. That the influence (or authority) of the British Government, is exercised in Mexico to prevent a settiernont of difficulties between Mexico and Texas, except on condition that the latter will " give assurances" not to conseut to bo annexed to tho United btatcs. ' 3d. That every possible inducement will be held out in Texas, and every possible obstacle in her way, to prevent the incorporation of Tex as into the Federal Union; aud especially that a reconciliation will speedily bo procured between Mexico and Texas, on a basis conformable to British policy, if Texas can be persuaded to re linquish the project of Annexation 4th. That the question ol Annexation is es sentially and entirely a question between the United States and Great Britain, and whether American or English politics shall prevail on this continent, There ia one point betrayed in tl'J first, letter of Capt. Elliott, which we were not before ac quainted with, and which is remarkable, the reader will recollect that tha United States, on the solicitation of Texas, proposed to tho En glish and French Governments, tnat the three Governments should interpose jointly to procure a treaty of peace and recognition ot indepen dence between Mexico and Texas, and that En gland declined the proposition, but immediately ''put herself forward" lo procure a settlement on their own terms. It appears now, from Capt. Elliott s letter to Mr. Jones, that iificr this refu sal to unite with France and the United States, England made her proposals to tho bolligorent States between which she was interposing, put her plans, as was supposed, in a proper train, and they effected a junction with, and the co operation jof Franco- without rcforciico to the United States. . , - , . Wc say nothing of tho discourtesy implied in this extraordinary procedure. More serious con siderations grow out of it. It indicates a fore gone determination on the part of Great Bri tain: ' 1st. To supplant the influences ofthe Ameri can Government in the Stales of Mexico and Texas, 2d, To effect a settlement of tho difficulties between those States, on a basis that it was known the United States Could not concur in. 3d. To stop, if possible, by a combination of European powers, the further progress of A merican institutions and influence ; and 4th. To introduce into this continent the Eu ropean syslem of officious interference and in termeddling, to the detriment of this Govern rnent, aud coutrary to its true policy and posi tion. EPIGRAM.

Before long, we hope to hear the "trunipet-tongued" tones of his voice once more aised, as they were in the glorious campaign ot '28, against "Adams and Clay," andor POLK and DALLAS. Robert L. Brent, esq... of this city. This gentleman, of fine legal attainments, and excel loin oratorical abilities, has recently foregone all further connection with the coon party, lie has heretofoie been a warm and decided opponent of democratic men and measures. But the vacillating course of Mi. Clay, and the utterabsence of con sistency in tho coon party their countenance o! fraud, and introduction of new measures, have in duced unnreiudice and proper reflection upon the mcrils and demerits of tho two parties, and he has, after serious and conscientious consideration adjured the coon party . forever. The speed: which he delivered to tho great .meeting of the democrats ot the I hud ward, on lhursday last was excellent, argumcntivc, and effective; and we are told that his address at the groat harvest homo meeting in Baltimore county, on Monday last, was characterized by powerful reasoning, ex cellcnl declamation, and whole-souled deteinii nation, to be unshrinking and unfaltering in .us efforts in behalf of Polk, Dallas, Carroll, and vic tory. We welcome him with warm hearts to our ranks, in the name of the Maryland democracy Bait. licp. . Hear Them. The Cleveland Herald, as copied into the Jour nal, says: 'The election for members ofthe Legislature is very important, and should not be lost sight of by any whig for a moment. We have our serious doubts whether tho whole of the whigs of our State desire their party to get a majority in the Legislature, to fasten upon the State tho monstrous banking projects of last win ter, to which . they are plodgcd. The farmers and tay payers of Ohio will stop and ponder over the consequences of involving the State iu a debt of millions to bank on. The holders of real es tate do not desire it mortgaged for the benefit of brokers and speculators. That class of men have had their harvest of plucking the people, and short-sighted indeed must they be, to give them the reins again iu Ohio. Could they have suc ceeded in humbugging the people, the banks of Ohio would have been yet in a state of suspeu sion, and the people paying from ten to tweuty per cent, discount and exchanges, all, too, we should have been told, for the want of a U. S. Bank! Such is whiggery ! statesman. Henry Clay an enemy to free discussion. The whig party, in this section of the country at all events, have ever claimed to be the exclu sive friends and advocates of free discussion and the right of petition. As faithful and vigilant sentinels of tho people's rights, they have lost no occasion to denounce any man who would attempt to deny the people the right of free discussion, as unfit to enjoy their confidence either through an elevation lo office or otherwise. Yet now, with characteristic inconsistency, they seek to el evate just such a man to tho highest office in the people's gift. . Hear Henry Clay7s own words: "Discussiou implies deliberation; deliberation is preliminary to action. The people of the North have no right to act npon the subject of southern slavery, and therefore THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO DELIBERATE, JNU 1UUUT TU UliS- CUSS." Clay's Speech, 1837.

It will not bo denied, and must be admitted by all, that Henry Clay is well suited for a "dictator," and not at all qualified for a servant of the people, for he has even die tated to his followers as imperiously as a spoiled coquette. Ho never obeyed his constituents. In two instances ho most signally aisoDeyeu tnem. When in Congress, he voted for Mr. Adams a- gainst General Jackson for President. The leg islature of his State, by a vote ol oj to '4,1, re quested him to vote for Genoral Jackson, and that said legislature, by a vote ot 16 to 11, de clared that Andrew Jackson was tho choice of the people of Kentucky. Ho voted against the repeal of the late bank rupt law, in direct violation of the known will of his constituents. Truly ho is until tor a sorvant of tho people. Arkansas Intelligencer. -General Jackson says: "I think Polk and Dal las will get twenty States, il' not twenty-two, out of the twenty-six."

In a word, such was his abhorrenco of duelling and duellists in 1S39, that he thought it criminal to remain silent under the then recent exhibition of the 'murderous spirit' at Washington.. Now he stands associated on the same ticket with the man who was the chief adviser and counsellor in that 'Heaven-daring sin' and consents directly to aid in his elevation to the highest place in the epublic!

AMONG all the famous JUemcincs for Consump tion, none seems to be meetinr wth creator suc cess, or gaining a higher reputation than that most won derful article, Wistar's Balsam of M Cherry : That it standi at the head of all other remedies is now universally conceded. It has cored thousands unon thousands of all classes in cases of the most dangerous consumptive character. And physicians of tne greatest eminence tnrougnoui our whoio wuuuj, unhesitatingly recommend it ns the MOST POWERFUL CURATIVE ofPulmonary diseases in the whole range of Pharmacy.

Ihousanus ol cuiNSUBlr rive; rAi ENTS have already tested its exalted virtues, and con fessed its surpassing excellence and amazing power.

Jos- lin at liowe, limggists, in wewarK, in tms etaie, io whom it was communicated by John Winter, Esq., a citizen of Burlington, Licking county. Ohio. Burlington, Licking Co.,0., Dec. 1, 1843. Messrs. Joslin & Rowe: At your request I herewith transmit to you a statement of the case of Mrs. Winter and child, bb nea'r as I am able to communicate, which you aie nt liberty to publish if you see fit, ns I feel a desire to inform the world of the ellects of the invalu able medicine called Wiptar's BnUam of Wild Cherry, to which, by the divine blessing, I am indebted Tor the restoration to health of my wife and child. About rive years ago Mrs. Wimer was aitacKCd with a violent 'cough, pain in the chest and side, and symptoms of oppronching consumption. During the intervals from that time to sometime iu Feb. last, she had been treated by eminent Physician from Utica, Sylvania, Homer, Chatham, and Newark, and with only partial relief of the most urgent symptoms. A. bout one year ago she caught a violent cold, which seated upon the Lungs, producing an alarming aggra vation of all her previous symptoms. Her Physician was cent for, and despite his best efforts, she began rapidly to sink under her disease. Cough, Expectora tion, Hectic, together with night sweats, soon rcdurod her to a complete skeleton. In Feb. Inst, hor attend ing Physician, deemed her cape altogether hopeless, a council was called and after deliberating upon her case, unanimously pronounced her to be beyond the reach of means, and expressed their opinion that she could survive but a short time, one or two weeks at far thest. She was at this time entirely confined to her bed, and scarcely able to articulate, except in a whis per. Her daily paroxysms of coughing would last her interruptedly from three to five hours, and so severe were they, that we did expect that every paroxysm would be the last. Tho Physicians in council, pro nounced her Lungs, Livor, Kidneys, Spine, snd Mu cus, Membrane of the Stomach to be incurably dis eased. It was at this last extremity that we happened to obtain a pamphlet describing Dr. Wistar's Balsam o Wild Cherry, as applicable to Lung affections. We immediately sent to you and procured a bottle, and commencod its nee at evening by giving her one tea spoonful, and such was the surprising effect, that she was able to pass a comfortable night's rest, without ex periencing any paroxysm of coughing, and such was its ultimate effect, that after taking 5 bottles she was, contrary to the expectations of her physicinnB, nnd eve ry one who saw her, entirely restored to health ; and since hist summer has done the entire work of her fam ily. After the last attack of Mrs. Wimer, our young est child, then an infant at the breast, was taken down and rapidly sinking, with the same symptoms as its mother, and seeing the happy effect ofthe Balsam in the case of the mother, we were disposed to make trial of it for the child, and it was attended with tho samo perfect success. The above statement can be attosted by our physi cian ns well 09 our neighbors and acquaintances, who saw Mrs. Wimor during the course of her sickness. Very truly, yours, 4c. John- wimer.

I whs taken with a violent pain in the side near the Liver which con tinued lor about rive flays, and was followed Dy me breaking of nn ulcer, or something inwardly, which relieved the nain a little, but caused mo to throw up a great quantity of offensive matter and also much blood. being greatly ularmed at this, 1 applied to a physician, but ho said he thought he could lo but little for me ex-, cent give mo some Mercury Pills, which I refused to take, fueling satisfied they could do me no good; many other remedies were then procured by my wife and friends, and none did me any eood, and the discharge of blood and corruption still continued every fowdays, and at last became so offensive I could scarcely brenthe. I was also seized with a violent cough, which at timet caused mo to raise much more blood than I had done before, and my disease continued in this way,slill grow ing worse until Feb. when all hope of my recovery was given up, and my friends all thought I would die with a galloping consumption. At this moment, wheii my me was apparently urnwing near at a close, i nearu ot Dr. Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, and got a bottle, which relieved me immediately, and by the useof only three bottles of this medicine, till my pains wero remo ved, my conghind spitting of blood and corruption en tirely stopped, and in a lew weeks my health was so far restored as to enable me to wotk nt my trade, (which is a Carpenter) and up to this time I have eniov ed good health. .
