THE OTTAWA FREE TRADER.
Who wauld br a Cnodltlnle. We have already recorded the death of Mr. Mulilcnburgh, the democratic candi date for Governor of Pennsylvania, by apoplexy. A correspondent of ilie riiil adelphia Chronicle writing from Reading says : 'This was the second attack of the kind Mr. M. had, the first on the tleatlt of hi wife. This attack, his friends assert was brought on by the fierce political war now waging in this neighborhood. The attacks lately made' in the 'Journal,' on Mr. M.'s character, charging him with gambling, drunken-, ncss, profane swearing, &c., together with an article which appeared in the 'journal' of yesterday, signed Hugh Lind say, charging him with bribery and cor ruption, kept Mr. Muhlenberg in such a state of excitement that all his friends no ticed it.' Probably no citizen of Penn sylvania stood higher than Mr. Muhlen berg. Ho had been once a clergyman but left the pulpit for the bar, anil filled a seat in Congress and the post of Minis ter to Russia with the highest reputation. It was no uncommon result for him to be returned to Congress from his district by a majority of 3 and 4000 votes, and yet with all this admitted popularity and an unimpeachable reputation he was unfor tunately the candidate of his parly for governor, and was assailed by his ene mies as 'a gambler, a drunkard, and pro fane swearer,' together with a charge of bribery and corruption. Character is of no valoe when a citizen becomes a can didate for a high office a bitter political war robs him of all that is worth preser ving, and such charges operating upon a sensitive and excitable mind have led to this sad result. A man must be brave who enters the political arena in these times he must stand erect as the rugged oak or bend like the pliant willow, for the wind will whistle fiercely around him. Sun Weekly, They are now growing a giant at cox- sacKic in iew York, who promises to overtop all competition in this country or Europe. His name is Nathan Lapinan. and he is 10 years old. weighing 198 pounds, standing at this time 7 feet 1 inch in height, and growing "like mad." He is described by Dr. Smith as "a great tall, awkward, good natured, sixteen years old boy." He is believed already to have the longest legs on the continent, and has ac tually .grown nine inches the last year. He is an ambitious youth, and, has great desire to outgrow all creation : an inspi ration qUc likely to be reached, for he has good health and good habits. The doctor thinks he will reach at least another foot, and on the whole we have a very good prospect of raising an " Empire" Giant. 'Well Pat,' said a bullying whig the other day, to a shrewd son of the Emer ald Isle, 'you dont calculate to vote for Fork this year, I hope V 'Yere everlas tingly makin blunders of that kind,' re k plied Pat; 'I do indade mean to vote for the man, and I'll tell ye tchij, too ; ye did appinted us about that JJufe the (other time, and we think we'll have the For rok now, any how, yer 'onor.'

I purchased of tho agent in our place one buttle, before using half of which I began to gain strength, mid it was very evident my cough was a great deal belter, and my symptoms in every way improving. 1 have now used three bottles, and am restored to health.
