CANAL COMMISSIONER !
HARRISBURG, Sept. 20.—The following ad
drers Irom the Central Committees ol :he
Whig, Republican and American parties,
has been published to the people of this
Stale.
TO TIIE PEOPLE OF PENNSYLVANIA.
The Whig party, the Republican party,
and the American party, having each nomi
nated a candidate for the office of Canal
Commissioner, it becomes apparent that
such a division of the elements or opposi
tion to Ihe National Administration, and iis
Nebiaska fraud, would inevitably lend to the
triumphant election of Arnold Plnmor, the
pro-slavery Nebraska candidate—in view of
these facta, a meeting of our resprctive Cen
tral Committees of said parlies wus held at
Harrisbutg, on Thursday, the 27th of Sep
tember, 1855, and their nominees having
declined and been withdrawn, Thomas Nich
olson, of Beaver county, was nominated as
Ihe candidate of the said parties, for lite pur
pose of concentrating ihe votes ot the anti-
Nebraska party on one man : and he is here
by earnestly recommended to all the lovers
of freedom in Pennsylvania, as a capable,
honest and true-hearted man, who is worthy
of the support and confidence of Ihe people.
By order of Ihe Committees.
JOHN A FISHER,
Chairman Whig Slate Committee.
LEMUEL TODD,
Chairman American Slate Committee.
DAVID WILMOT,
Chairman Republican State Committee.
It was a complaint by the conscientious
portion of the Know Nothings that the old
parties contained evils, among the most griev
ous of which was, that the masses were too
much under the control of their leaders. But
the above circular exhibits a degree cf pre
sumption in parly leaders such aa was never
before witnessed in Pennsylvania. Messrs.
Fisher, Todd, and Wilraot attempt to lead
their several parlies by the nose, and set aside
the action of three State conventions as cool
ly as the dictator ol France or Mexico could
abrogate the election or action of Ihe people.
Three parties held their cousultstions, and
the people sent delegatos to the several Stale
conventions to (elect fit candidates. It can
not be pretended that Messrs. Martin, Hen
derson and Williamson are not true repre
sentatives of their several parties; but the
three dictators get together at midnight and
knock down the nominees as easily as they
would so many playthings at a game of ten
pins. Like the same number of bovine gen
tlemen in a china shop, they play the deuse
with the party crockery-ware of the Know
Nothings, Whigs and Republicans.
It remains to be seen how tar the trick of
the three thimble-riggers can dupe the |reo
ple. No person will be deceived by so
shameless an amalgamation of political prof
ligates except those who wish to be seduced
Wilrnot and Todd look back upon the Dem
ocratic household like the rebellious and lost
Lucifer upon Paradise, with the muttering"
of the deep curse that grows from envy.—
Apostates are always desperate; for having
lost ll.e pride ol self-respect, they have grown
callous in the nerve of honor, and indifferent
to the respect ol good and honesl men. Their
passion of the hate against the cause of the
people has eaten out all that was ever noble
in their hearts, until that passion has become
their master, and they its helpless ami hope
less victims.
How do you like 111
Those Democrats who have sold themselves
to the Know Nothings now find themselves
tied down to vote for Whig Know Nothings
for Assembly and Sheriff, and in return are
promised a paltry vole for a Treasurer who
was once a Democrat! That is, the Whig
branch of the concern asks the only offices
worth having, and leaTes the crumbs to the
duped tools who have been tempted from the
Democratio fold. Truly these Democrats have
•old themselves for a mess of pottage, and
a very small mess at that.
Let those prodigals see how they have been
made hewers of wood and drawers of water
to their new task-masters, and how only the
husks are held out to them. In a county like
this where there is a Democratic majority,
auch a ticket a* that formed by the Whig
Know Nothing conspirators ia an insult to
those Democrats who have been silly enoosh
to aell themselves for so low a price. How
4o they like the ticket 1
The office of Member ot the Legislature ia
Ihe ouly one of any political consequence of
those to be voted for this fall, and that candi
date the Wbigs take in the formation of the
Know Nothing ticket. The office of Sheriff
ia Ihe next in consequence and worth, and
that candidate 100 the Whigs take. When
the division of officers came to be made, the
Wblga seem to have done like the Yankee
to the Indian—never onoe to have said " tor
key " to the Demoerats whom they had tempt
ed to betray their faith and household; True,
in aa much aa tbe ticket of the Jacobins
stands no ohance of success this ia a matter
e( no consequence, except se indicating the
disposition and complexion of the party.
lie only Spites Himself-
IT la a common occurrence that when a
man fails to gel e Democratic nomination, or
ia defaated for township delegate he joins the
Know Nothings " for spite," as vulgar par
lance well describes it. This only proves that
the party did well in not placing him ill a
position ol trust and responsibility. If be is
so inuch the victim of his passions and weak
ness that he cannot say "gel thee behind me"
when Ihe Know Nothing leaders oome around
him and tempt hint with the offer of the whole
world if he will fall down and worship them,
while the poor devils have nothing to give
him, he was not a safe man for a leader in
the cause of the people. Such men should
be thankful if the kindness of their polilioal
friends will ouly veil the infirmities of their
frail nature in sddhoe.
If he cannot resist the temptations of error
when the spirits of seduction tap him famil
iarly on Ihe shoulder at midnight and explain
"how mean the Loco-focoa have used him,"
he spiles no one but himself in going into
the dark gangway that leads to the conspira
tors lodge, or in sneaking into woodsheds and
butcher shops to swear fealty to their bid
ding. He lakes the oath of eternal hostility
sgsinst his old politioal household and hence
fotth he is an alien to the cause of the peo
ple. He has raised his hand to swear against
his brother who worships the same God by
another form of prayer. He ia frightened at
the head of a Christian church, and sells him
self to a Protetlaut Pope who knocks down
and sets up at his will candidates fur the poor
dupe's vote.
We pity him, for we cannot hate :he frail
ty of his natuie. But he is joined to his idols;
let him alone. Alas, that Truth should have
come to such a tearful discount ! He has
forsworn the teelings of humanity and broth
erhood which was in his heart, and from
henceforth he must remember his vow to
hate und fear his brother of another creed.— I
He feels that aoine secret letter binds him j
when he meets you, and you notice with re
gret that ttie open frankness of his manner
has become sicklied over with the pale,
greenish cast of suspicion. He dares not de
fend the oath he has taken when you con
demn it, and his tongue is dumb when you
rebuke his new found friends. He hangs his
head in silence to Ihe condemnation of thai
cojspiracy of which he is a part; and gradu
ally wears off ihe shame lie first felt when
thrice each day with a falsehood be denied
his maslors.
Party Hacks.
When the Know-Nolhing party begar. its
career it proudly vuunted of its purity in ta
king men for candidates fresh from the ranks
ol the people, and not "old parly hacks."—
Let us see how the praotioe squares with the
profession. The Know-Nothing candidate
for VJ. S. Senator last winter was one of the
most unscrupulous politioal prostitutes in the
State. In this county last fall the candidates
were men who had been faithful to no party
and DO political faith. This fall the Know-
Nothing candidate for Assembly is a man
who once ran as the Whig candidate for
Commissioner, and afterward for the same
office on the "repeal" ticket. The candi
date for Sheriff was once by accident elected
to the Legislature, and while he professed to
belong to the Whig party he was able to con
trol three voters on the locsl question against
a division of this count). The county
was divided that year, and Johnston and
Best sold out Mr. Former, who fell as da
fenceless as a lamb. Next year he was want
ed to I}F a candidate for Member on the re
peal ticket, hut no inan could be found to
move in his favor.
The Know-Nothing candidste for Treasu
rer was for some years a standing applicant
for the the legislative i.ominatinii. and was
finally elected county Auditor. Two years
ago he was on the lookout for the Treasurer
nominaliou.
On the other hand Mr. Miller, the Demo
cratic candidate for Sheriff, never asked for
an office, and was most likely never in a po
litical convention. The same thißg can be
said of Mr. Fahringer, and these men present
a character beautifully in contrast with the
dilapidated politicians on the Know Nothing
ticket. Let the part) of political Jacobins
take the beam out of their own eyes before
they talk of "political hacks" and "old fo
gies" in the Democratio ranks.
Abuse and Three ( epics for a Quarter.
Our readers will excuse us for the high price
of 25 cents which we last week set as the pay
given by John Stewart for the abuse of Mr.
Mernfield in the Democrat. The editor says
we are in ertoi, because Ihe 25 cents was
paid not only for defaming Mr. Merrifield.
but also fur two copies of the "Democrat" to
Mr. Stewart and one to Mr. Merrifield. The
price of three newspapers from 25 cents will
leave about 12i cents as the pay for the at
tack upon the Democratic nominee in Lu
xerne for the Legislature, because he did not
pay a hill lor printing whioli he never order
ed. Or we may say that we were siill rijbt:
the quarter paid for (he abuse and the three j
newspapers were thrown in lor good meas- {
ure. The Colonel says the quarter paid lor
the newspapers and the abuse waa thrown in
to make up the worth of Mr. Stewart's mon
ey. We dou't much care which way the
reader counts. The only error we made was
to value the Democrat's abuse at t quarter
when it is proved to be only worth about 124
oents.
For lommisslooer
The Know Nothings have coaxed out Philip
Cool of Roaringcreek, as we see by the last
issue of their organ. Several years ago the
same print announced him for County Audi
tor, but as the true Democrats oi the county
knew that Mr. Cool, like the Colonel, was,
as the K tow Nothings and Wbiga say: "no
Locn-Foco to hurt".be did not get ou the
ticket. We believe Mr. Cool has generally
talked Democracy heretofore, und ended by
voting with the opposition against tha Dem
ocratic tick*!. He was therefore a very prop
er pieee of material out of whieh to manu
facture a part of the Know Nothing ticket.

FOR ASSEMBLY,
JOHN STALEY.
FOB SHERIFF,
BENJAMIN P. F<SRTNER.
FOR TREASURER,
WILLIAM COLE.
FOR COMMISSIOSER,
PHILIP COOL.
No person would for a moment think of
comparing Mr. Slaley's fitness for a legislator
with the talents and capacity of Mr. Mont
gomery. The Democratic nominee would
be an honor to the district and an ornament
to the House of Representatives. If it were
possible for Mr. Sialey to be eleo'ed and an
emergency should arise in which the dis
trict would require his influence we doubt
very mch whether he could command
more voles from his party to serve the inter
est of his constituents than the tkrtt which
his Whig predecessor • few years ago se
oured against division.
Mr. Staley may be a good man in his
place, but legislation is certainly out of his
line of business.
For Treasurer every person who knows
the two men will admit that Esquire Harris
is the more competent business man for the
office. He would attend to the office him
self and not by dsptdy; and when the people
vote for an officer they want him to do the
duties of the office, and not some irresponsi
ble deputy who sneaks into and out of
Know Nothing lodges.
I# A Know Nothing always says "you
cannot prove I hat I belong to the order," and
the Colonel of the Democrat has caught up
the strain and says "you cannot prove that I
opposed Democratic nominations. He seems
to have forgotten that he last fall abused
Democratic nominees, and explained in his
paper how often the Know Nothing candi
dates had fought, bled and died for their coun
try, and how the "rising family" of ihe bloody
heroes cried out to the people for support.—
He forgets how two years ago in the paper
published immediately after the election he
raised a shout ol joy over Ihe defeat o! a
Democratic nomination.
Serious Accident at Dunville.
DANVILLE, Pa., Sept. 29th.—This morning,
at about 25 minutes before 5 o'clock, the
largest boiler of six, bursted in Ihe Rough &
Ready Rolling Mill—the westend flying out
some three feet, and the boiler, 24 feet long
torn from its place, carrying ofl bricks, pipes,
and tearing out the east end of the Mill.—
i The boiler struck the ground and turned a
complete somersault in its course, knocked
down the out kitchen and went into the di
ning room of Mr. John Coker's house, one 1
hundred and thirty-five yards from the place
of starting. A boy, son of Jesse Sholes, had
his arm broken ; one man had a leg broken ;
two other boys slightly wounded by flying I
bricks. Mr. Coker and family were sleep
ing in the room over the dining-room, and
although the wing or Ihe house is a perfect
wreck, no one in the bouse was hurt. The
loss will be about three thousand dollars.—
The enterprising proprietor, Messrs. Han
cock and Foly, are already at work with a
strong foroe clearing away the rubbish. They
will be at work in a fortnight hence. The
workmen say that the waler was not low in
the boiler at the lime it bursted. J. H. T.

IRON RAILING.—Iron is now used for al
mosi every imaginable purpose—for build
ing, for railing, an.! even for ornamental stat
uary and furniture. At the establishment of
Robert Wood in Philadelphia verandahs,
statuary, Newfoundland dogs, greyhounds,
lions, fountains, spiral and straight stairs, ta
bles, settees, chairs, hat and umbrella stands,
flower vases and stands are cast to suoh cor
rect taste as to gin admiration from every
refined mind. Books of designs with the
prices of each article marked can be seen
at this office. The establishment is the one
at which Ihe iron railings of this town have
been generally purchased. See advertise

IF After the present week the storm of
politics will be over again, and our labors
will turn mora to literature and news. We
will try to publish next week the able and
finely finished Agricultural Address of Judge
Black.
BT The Philadelphia mail has lately up.
on several occasions failed to reach this place
with regularity. We hope a bint from the
public will be sufficient.
ur NEXT TUESDAY the contest will be de
cided between the cause of Democracy and
the amalgamation of Isms.
EDUCATIONAL.
TEAL-NEK'S ASSOCIATION.
ON Saturday, Sept. 291h, the Teacher's As
sociation of Colombia county, met at the
Academy in Bloomsburg, Mr. Wearer pre
siding.
Alter some brief remarks from the Presi
dent as to the business and objects of the
Association, Mr. William Kahler was called
upon for an essay upon the subject of Astron
omy, in pursuance to the allotment of subjects
by the Executive Committee. Mr. Kahler
read an essay, and continued in some addi
tional oral remarks.
Mr. Abia John being called upon read an
essay upon the subject of Physiology in
Schools. Some further remarks upon the
subject were made by Mr. Wearer.
Mr. C. P. Hill, in answer to the allotment
of subjects by the Executive Committee, read
an essay upon the subject of Reading as an
Amusement.
Mr. Kahler addressed the Association with
some views and suggestions as to the meth
od of teaching the full soience of language
in connection with reading exercises, so as
to embrace a knowledge of the construction
of words and their meaning. Further re
marks upon the same subject were made by
Messrs. Weaver and Burgess)
Mr. HiU was called upon for views upon
the best method of teaching reading and the
best works for that purpose. He was in fa
vor of Saunder's aeries of readers except the
first number.
Mr. H. Coons was called upon for sugges
tions upon the subject of ooirect reading, and
made some pertinent remarks. Ho recom
mended it as an occasional exercise to com
mand the voice to give confidence, tone and
regularly to the scholars delivery, but mainly
as a preparation for learning music. Mr.
Burgess followed upon the same subject,
i Mr. Burgess was then called upon for sug
gestions upon the efficacy of Pelton's Out
line Maps in teaohing Oeography. He had
used these maps to some extent, and had
found that some of the most excellent schol
ars in Geography had learned by this system.
The key might be used along, or the maps
used in connection with any work on Geog
raphy.
Mr. Weaver followed in some excuse of
Pelton's system from the abuses it had sul
fered in the hands of itinerant teachers who
had dependad almost entirely up or. the ver
ses in the book for leaching the scholar. He
explained that no system of artificial memory,
mnemonics or mnemotechna, can be relied
on for permanont and general instruction, but
that all science must be learned by the natu
ral association of new ideas and facts with
those already iu the mind for which tbey
have affinity or siiiiffitude. The verses were
designed as exercises to interest the young,
and to commence the study of music, but not
to be learned by rote.
Mr. Coons followed in some remarks in the
same direction.
After some consultation aa to future meet
ings of the Association, Rev. Ccnley Plotts
of Muncy having arrived was invited to ad
dress the Association. He did so to the en
couragement and interests of the members.
He spoke of the great and good work which
the teacher has before him, with earnest zeal
for the cause of education.
On motion of Mr. John, it was Resolved,
that ibe thanks of this Association are hereby
tendered to Mr. Plotts for bis attendance and
encouraging address.
The meeting then adjourned to meet next
at Millville on Saturday the Bth of December
next.
'• Disgust Tor the wild hunt after Office
which characterizes the present age"
Was proclaimed at Reading as one of the
articles of faith of the Know-Nothing party.
This tine sentiment was thrown out as a tid
bit for innocents to nibble at. No one can
be but struck witb the beautiful consistency
of ibis principle with the practice of those
who promulgated it; coming as it does from
Ex Governor Johnston and such other politi
cal hucksters, who have been "everything at
times and nothing long,"—who chamelion
like have changed their principles and their
party, and followed every flag that promised
plunder if successful.
In one view of the case there is a moral
in the sentiment which we have taken for
our text. Looking upon it as the sincere ex
pression of disappointed and despairing men,
it is the sad story of experience. After wast
ing the noblest energies of their best days
in the wrangles and strifes of politics, and
after joining, year after year, with unabated
zeal in tha hot chase for place and plunder,
until, like broken down coursers, they weie
turned out by the old parties to graze upon
the waste places, or be fed by the charily of
the world ; after enduring all this, they sum
up their sorrows and proclaim their bitter
conviction of "disgust for the wild hum after
office." They joined in the 'wild hums,'
found little game, and are disgusted. But
we are not justified in taking this expression
as sincere, for the very men who uttered it,
and the very party that clings <o it, aie still
baying ami yelping the loudest, and lustiest
in that same "wild hunt." Every county
has its scores of office seekers in the K. N.
party, and they carry this resolution as a
mask to conceal their faces: lest otherwise
they should inspire in those recognizing them
the same feelings for themselves, which, in
their hypocrisy, they profess towards office
aekers generally.— Harrisburg Patriot.
How LONO THE VVsa HAS LASTED.—The
war in Europe is already two years old. The
Russian ambassador left Constantinople on
the 22d of May, 1853, and on the 4th of Jnne
the English aud French fleets received or
ders to approach the Dardanelles, and they
anchored in Besika Bay. On the 26th of
June the Emperor of Russia ordered his ar
my to occupy the Principalities. On the Utb
of September two Freooh and two English
war steamers, from the fleet at Besika Bay,
went to Constantinople. Oil the 27th ihe
Porie declared war agains I Russia and invi
ted tha English and French fleets to Constan
tinople. On the 2d of November the Em
peror of Russia declared war agamst Turkey.
The French declaration of war was made in
March, 1851.
ONE WEEK LATER FROM EUROPE.
Assault on 8bHopol.
The French la Possession of the Malakoll,
The British Attack on the Redan Repulsed.
The City Evacuated and Destroyed by
the Russians.
THE RUSSIANS OCCUPV THE NOSTHERN SORTS.
LOSS OF UPWAKIM OF 30,000 MEN.
NEW YORE, Sept. 28.—The Halifax steam
er, America, and the Bremen steamer Wash
ington, both arrived yesterday, the latter at
New York. The news they bring Is highly
important. It tells of the destruction of Se
bsstopol by the Russians, after a terrible as
sault by the Allies, in which they were re
peatedly repulsed, but the French finally ef
fected a lodgment in the MalakofT, when the
Russians evacuated the town, destroying ev
erything in their retreat. The loss of the
Allies is said to be 20,000; the Russians 10,-
000.
The Russians now occupy the forts on the
north part of the harbor, including Fort Con
stantino, at Ihe mouth of the harbor, the Cen
tral Fort, Fort Catharine, and a number of
powerful batteries.
The News by the Washington.
NEW YORE, Sept. 27.—8y the United States
mail steamship Washiugton, Captain Connel
ly, from Bremen and Southampton, we re
ceive English despatches and newspapers
to the 12th instant. She brings 320 passen
gers.
The steamship America arrived at Liver
pool on the 9th inst.
The Washington brings (he important intel
ligence of the " Fall of Sebastopol On the
Bth insl. the allied forces attacksd the defen
ces of Sebastopol and the French succeeded
in gaining possession of the Malakoff. The
English, who attempted the Redan, were not
successful. During the night, the Russians
began lo sink their ships, blow up their mag
azines, and burn their city, and on the follow
ing morning Sebastopol was evacuated, and
Ihe communication between the north forts
and the town broken off.
The following telegraphic despatch, receiv
ed by izird Panmure from Gen. Simpson, ap.
peared in the English morning journals of the
1 Ith inst.: -'Sebastopol is in possession of the
Allies. The enemy, during the night and
morning, evacuated the south side, after ex
ploding their magazines and setting fire to
Ihe whole of the town. All the men-of-war
were burnt during the night, With the excep
tions of Ijtree steamers, which were playing
about Ihe harbor. The bridge communica
ting with Ihe north side is broken. General
Simpson regrets that the casualties in (be
attempt on the Redan were somewhat
heavy, but there was no general officer kill
ed
In a supplement of the Moniteur the fol
lowing telegraphic despatch, received by the
French government from Gen. Pelissier ap
pears: Karabeluaia, the soulh part of Sebas
topol, no longer exists. The enemy, perceiv
ing our solid occupation of the Malakoff, de
cided upon consuming the place after having
destroyed and blown up by mines nearly all
the defences. Having passed the night in
the midst of my troops, I can assure you that
everything in the Karabelnaia is blown up,
and from what I could see, the sa.ne must be
the case in front of our left line of attack.—
This immense success does the greatest hon
or to our troops. Everything is quiet on the
Tchernaya.
The assanlt on the MalakofT was at noon
of the Bth inst. The redoubts and the Redan
of Careening bay were carried by storm by
the French soldiers, with admirable intrepid
j ity to the shouts of Vive I'Empereur. The
Redan of Careening bay was not tenable,
owing to the heavy fire of artillery which was
poured upon the first occupiers of that work.
On beholding the French eagles floating on
the Malakofl, Gen. de Suites made two at
tacks on the Central Bastion, but did not suc
ceed. Tbe French Troops retnrned lo tbeir
trenches. The losses was serious.
The plan of the battle appears to have been
as follows :—The place was attacked in four
directions. The British troops attempted the
storming of the Redan; the French attacked
ihe MalakofT. The extreme right of the
French made a diversion ol the little Redan,
and a united attack of the English, French
and Sardinians was made on the Central Bat
tery. All the attacks were made simultane
ously with great spirit and energy ; but the
one which waa moat eminently successful,
was led by Gen. Bosqnet and M'Mahon on
the Malakoff. Both the Redan and Central
Bastion were at times in the hands of the
storming parties, but so accurately did the
guns of the Russians cover these, that as
soon aa the English had gained possession
of them it waa found impossible to hold
them. „
The following despatch is from Prince
GortetcbakofT, and is dated tbe night of the
9th. "'lhe garrison of Sebastopol, after sus
taining an infernal fire, repulsed its assaults,
but did not d'ive the enemy from Ihe Mala,
koff Tower. Our brave troops, who resisted
to the last extremity, are now crossing over
lo tbe northern part of Sebastopol. The ene.
my found nothing on tbe southern part but
blood-stained ruins. On the 9lh of Septem
ber the passage lo the northern side was ac
complished with the loss of 100 men. We
left, I regret to say, 500 men previously woun
ded on the south side."
The intelligence of the fall of Sebastopol
was received in London with demonstrations
of great joy. At the various theatres and pla
ces of publio amusement, the fact was offi
cially announced, and the bands at each
place immediately played the national an
thems of England and Frar.ce, and through-,
out England (he demonstrations wets gen
eral.
The English loss in tbe sjwault on the Re
dan is estimated at 2Q&O killed and wound
et).
During tbe past week we have dis
tributed more than one hundred school doc
uments to Directors and citizens who fell
an interest in the cause of education. Such
boards of Directors as have not yet received
paokages from us can receive them at our
office. Teachers will be supplied grails,
with blank forms for their monthly reboite to
I the Directors.

Holloioay's Ointment and Pills, infallible
Remedies for Salt Rheum.—Edward Jackson
of Galveston, Texas, suffered unceasingly for
four years with salt rheum, so bad was he
that for four or fire months at a lime, he was
compelled to keep his bed, and the doctors
told nim candidly that he need never again
expect to be well. Finding this to be the
case, he dismissed them, and immediately
&Ut himself under a course of Holloway's
intment and Pills, these fine remedies soon
made such an improvement in him that he
was enabled to resume his occupation, and
by continuing them lor a short lima he was
restored to the blessings bl health, which he
hae enjnyed ever since.
TSF HORRIBI.C SACRIFICE OF LIFE on THE
Western Waters, in Forty-four Years. —From
Lloyd's forthcoming Htuaoitioat Directory we
lesrn that since the application of itesm on the
Western Waters thero hc been thirty-nine
thousand six hundred and seventy-two livrs j
lost by steamboat disasters, three hundrod and i
eighty ono boats and cargoes lost, and seventy
boats seriously injured, amounting in the ag- '
gregate to the enormous sum of siity-srvco
million of dollnrs. It is to be hoped that this I
forthcoming work will have the effect o'anost- I
ing the attention of '.lie Government to the iin- ,
portanccof Western interests, so far as our |
great riveis and lakes are concerned.
IMPORTANT TO FEMALES—Dr.CHEESEMANS' I
PILLS. —The combinations of ingredients in I
tbeae Pills, is die result of a long and ex
tensive practice; thty are mild in their oper- I
atior, and certain in restoring nature to its ;
proper channel In every instance h.<ve the
Pills proved successful. The Pills invariu. !
biy open those obstructions to which females
arc liable, and tiring nature into ita proper j
channel, whereby heath is restored, and the :
palo and deadly countenance changed to A !
healthy one. No female can enjoy good'
health unless she is cgulai ; and whenever !
an obstruction takes place, whether from ei- j
posure, cold, or any other cause, the general j
health immediately begins to decline, and the I
want of such a remedy has HEEC the cause o( I
so many consumptions among young female. ,
To ladies whose health will not permit AN in J
crease of their family, these Pills will prove T
a valuable acquisition,™ ihey will prevent
pregnancy. H eadncne, pain in the siJo, pal
pilation of the heart, loathing of food, and
disturbed alceD domes', alwavs arise from the
interruption of nature; and whenever that ia
the CEse, the Pills will invariably remedy all
theae evils. Nor are they less cllicacioua in
the cure of Leucotrhoca, commonly called the
"Whites," These Pills should never he ta.
ken during pregnancy, as they would be sure

IMPORTANT TO THE LADIES. jFt
Dr. GEISBNER'S Celebrated Menstrual Pills
have been long and widely known as invari
ably certain in removing any stoppage, irreg
ularity, or suppression of the menses.
In the lemale hospitals in Vienna, Paris,
and Betlin, they have entirely superseded the :
use of all other remedies; because, where a
cure ia attainable by medicinal agencies, .
they are certain of success. Their astonish- :
ing efficacy would be almost incredible, if!
not vouched for by indubitable testimony, in !
numerous instances producing returns of the 1
monthly period alter all hops had been üban
doned.
In every case from whatevercanse the ob- |
structioti may ariee, ns also to prevent preg- |
nancy where f n health will not admit cat in- ,
crease of family, they nre always efficient ;
for which reason they must not be used du- i
ring pregnancy, though always mild, healthy, j
safe and certain in their efTects.
Married ladies will filial particular inslruc- |
tiens m the directions, iq which are staled |
the various symptoms by whioh the cause of I
the suppression may be determined.
