PROSPECTUS
or THE
DAILY PENMSYLVAMAN
'A DOUBLE SHEET MORNING NEWSPAPER.
The Proprietor of the Philadelphia "Daily
Pcnnsylv avian," in view of the Presidential
Election, has made ample arrangements lor
ihe improvement tif that Journal in all its
various departments. A double sheet, con
sisting of eight pages of six columns each,
printed on good paper, with clear type, is
issued daily. No pains are spared to do full
justice to every part of thai paper. Tire lar
gest telegraphic news from all parts of the
country will be found in its columns; and at
greatexpet.se, talented correspondents from
whom highly interesting letters are received,
have been secured, not only in England,
Prance, Washington and New York, but iu
many other parts of the country. Great at
tention is also paid to the moulary, com
mercial, and especially the shipping list de
partment of this Journal, as well as to the
local news of the City. And while every
desirable feature of a Neicspaptr is thus en
grafted upon the P ennsylvanian, it will con
tinue with redoubled energy and determina
tion to do battle lor the Constitution and the
Union.
The editorial'conduct of The Pennsylvanian
has met with general approval, on account
l ol the fearlessness wilh which it assailed the
dangerous political heresies introduced by an
organization acting in secret, and corrupting
the whole moral structure of society. Abo
litionism also, has found in The Peunsylvani
an, an unrolen'.ing enemy because the doc
trine is subversive of the rights of one portion
of our country.
That of courso has been approved of by
our party, and intelligent citizens generally,
is attested by the prosperity of our estab
lishmei c. Our subscription has increased
fourfold, and our advertising is a still greater
ratio. Already has our issue reached ten
thousand; and at our present late of progres
sion, belore the year 1855 shall have expired
it will be double that number. The Propri
etor intends to spare no expense to make
'lhe Pennsylvanian one of the first journals of
lb • country in all its departments, and irt
this way rner.l the patronage of a deserving
put lie.
I'he Opposition, fully aware of the rm
nieose power and influence wielded by the
press, avail themselves of it to the fullest ex
tent. The circulation of their organs are in
creased by every possible means and the
whole power of their organization is used to
accomplish that object. The speeches of
their disunion orators, and other incendiary
dueu me tils, are town broadcast throughout
the land, and obtrusively (burst into the hands
of every voter. Tbote who have td much
holier a cause to advocate, and upon the suc
cess of whose labors rest the durability ol the
very coiner stones upon which our hsppuess
is founded, —civil and religious liberty,—and
the perpetuation of the Union itself, should
not be lets active We appeal to the true
Democracy, and to all Canstitmion loving
citizens, to coine forward and ant us m dis
truncating correct political information, and
ex'posii g the nefarious resigns ol our antag
onists We appeal alike to tin* citizens of
the Notlh, and ol the South to aid in the cir
culation if those sen tin.er.ts, and support of
these measures, which aie advocated by the
oul) National Political organization now iu
existet.ee.
The Proprietor can already boast of a large
circulation in the Southern Slates and he is
anxious lo increase the number of his read
ers in itial region, to that his hands may be
fiiHiialhened fur coming outlets against
those who are not only tho enemies ol the
South, bur ihe enemies of all true men in
ever portion of the Confederacy. In PKIIII
sj I, ante, unit tin, u,i,t Western j
Srvies, an increased circulation of this journal ]
wi I do much u at! antidote to the poisonous
doctrine of the Union-hating Black Republi
cans, and lyranical and corrupt Kuow Noth
ings. We tfccrclore confidently calculate
upon the hearty cooperation of our political
fiiends to Ihe extension of our circulation,
and leel confident thai this appeal will not
be made ro them in vain.

elegant oruumenls for the ttbool room.
Children are delighted lo study Geography
by litis system. They learn so rapidly and
receive such clear impressions of the subject,
that it is a pleasure tu both teacher and pu
pil lo be engaged in it. We all know that a
better and more lasting idea of a locality is
obtained by looking at a bold and distinct j
draw-ingot it, than by volumes ol descrip
tion. if a man wants to get an exact idea |
of a farm he has been purchasing, he learns
more by one iook at the draft on the back of
the deed, than by reading the description in
side twenty limes. This is the great princi>
pie of Pelton s system of Geography, and
there are others equally practical combined
with it which entitle it to the reputation it
sustains, as the best and quickest mode of
teaching Geography, t PI introduced.
PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY—including all
the invaluable discoveries in this science, of
Lieut. Maury and his coadjutors, is beauti
fully illustraied by these maps aud the ac

PHILOSOPHY AND m FACT.
[email protected]]Mk(2>Wzk , SFlS ZHBUU9*
The Exciting Clause ot Sickness.
The blood is the I tie sustaining agent. It
furnishes the components of flesh, Lone,
muscle, nerve and Integument. The stofnuch
is its manufactory, the veins its distributors,
and the iniestiues the channel through which
the waslo matter rejected in its productions
is expelled. Upon the stomach, the circula
tion and thu bowels, these Pills act simulta
neously, relieving indigestion, purifying the
fluids, and regulatiig the excretions.
Til IE NATIONAL COMPLAINT.
Dyspepsia is the most common disease
wmong till classes in ihis country. It assumes
a thousand shapes, ami is ilie primary souice
of innumerable dangerous maladies; but
whatever its type or s) mptoms, however ob
stinate its resistance to ordinary preparations,
it yields readily and rapidly to this searching
and unerring remedy.
BILIOUS AFFECTIONS.
The quamiiy and quality of the bile are of
vital importance to health. Upon the liver,
ihe gland which secretes this fluid, these
Pills operate specifically, infallibly rectifying
its irregularities, and effectually curing Jauu
dice, Bilious Reniiliaots, and all the varieties
Cf disease generated by an unnatural condi
tion ol the organ.
UOWLL COMPLAINT?.
Unlei-B the bowels perforin their functions
properly, the whole body suffers. Tens ol
ihousuudsdie annually of Dysentery, Diar
rhoea, Chronic consumption, and other dis
eases of these waste pipes of the system.—
The efieel ol the Pills upon all intestinal dis
orders, wheilcr casual or epidemic, ws a
phenomenon iii medicine. By following the
printed directions, Ihe mosi alarming cases
ol bowel complaint aie promptly controlled.
I A Word to Females.
J The local drbility aiul irregularities which
are the espeoial annoyances of the weaker
sex, and which, wltcu neglected, always
shoiten life, are relieved for ihe time being,
I and prevented for the time to come, by a
course cf this rnild but thorough alterative.
