Andrew Jackson. for cosqbess, SAMUEL P. ALLISON, of Davidson. SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 10, 1853. "FACE THE MUSIC." It ia very amusing to notice the difficulties and perplexities of our whig neighbora about the Bank. It 13 a sore subject to them, and whenever they at . tempt to touch it they do so with a pole about' ten Teetlongjyeti notwithstanding tliisprecaution, they are certain to get their fingere burnt. The Banner undertook a defence of the Bank about two weeks ago,but was so badly burnt in the at lempt that ithas never referred to the subject since. AVe thought that the True Wing would, take warning from this 'predicament of the Banner, and keep its fingers in its pockets. But no! It ha3 got a long pole, ami is trying to make somebody believe that it is wil ling and able to stand up to the Bank. It touches the matter so delicately, however, that its eflbrtsare only laughable. K6 one can fail to pee that it is afraid of the fire, and only making a feint to de ceive the public. 'We intend to hold the True Whig up to the rack in tliis matter, however. Ithas made a statement which it must prove, or else back clear out of it. It cannot evade the issue by such sophistry as this; ''When, therefore, the Union and American states that the charter and rules of the Bank require two endorsers upon bills as well as upon notes, and we deny the statement avowedly upon information, it obviously devolves upon the Union and American, if it has any record proof" to sustain its affirmation, to bring it forward."' We have brought forward recorded proof to sus tain our affirmation. We have cited the clause in the charter upon which, as we have understood from good authority, the policy of the bank in regard to bills of exchange has been predicated. The True Wltig does not deny that the policy of the Bank has been such a3 we have state I. It admits that "at one time the rules of the Bank did require tico en dorsers upon bills as well as upon notes offered for discount." But it contends that "long before the bills referred to by the Union and American were discounted this rule was so amended as to author ize the purchase of bills with less than iivo endors ers." Here is a positive statement of fact, and the proof of it, if there is any, must exist upon the minutes of the Bank. The True Whig, as we un derstand, makes the statement upon authority. It has a right to claim and will be allowed, therefore, free access to the minutes of the Bank in order to ' sustain its assertion. Wc called upon it to make good its statement by publishing that portion of the minutes of the Bank which shows that tho rule in question lias been repealed. We submit it to any sensible man, if this is calling upon the True Whig to prove a negative, as it alleges. The public are interested in knowing for a certain ty whether or not this rule has been repealed. We, therefore, for the sake of forcing out the tes timony on this point, undertake to deny the True Whig's statement in tolo. Our reasons for doing this are very strong. We have been informed by merchants dealing with the Bank that the rule, as we have stated it, has been invariably enforced against them. They have received no notification that it has been so amended as to authorize the discount of bills with less than two endorsers. We have reason to believe that the rule has been invariably acted upon by the Bank here, with the exception of the bills to which we have re ferred, and that, since these bills were discounted, it has been enforced. The True Whig must see, therefore, that we have good reason for denying its statement and calling for the proof. It cannot excuse itself by saying that we ask it to prove a negative. We do not ask it to prove a negative. We ask it to make gooJ a positive affirmation viz: that the rule of the Bank in question has been repealed the correctness of which affirmation we deny. Neither can the True Whig excuse itself by eayinjr that we commenced this matter mid J J , , .. ... ... ,. (( lanA nn nr flint i in tnn Imcitir nnrrtrrnrl in must " lead on," or that it is too busily engaged in bringing to light numerous incontrovertable and conclusive reasons why Andre r Johnson should not be elected Governor." When an editor makes a statement and it is respecfully and posi tively denied, he should never be " too bu.siiy en gaged" to vindicate himself by the proof. He cannot get off upon a pretext sn flimsy. The pub lic will conclude, and rightly too, that he has stated what he cannot prove and has not the candor to re tract. We call upon the True Whig to " face the music." We deny its statement that the rule of the Bank requiring two endorsers upon bills of ex change has been altered. Wc say that the busi ness public have receivvd from the Bank no noti fication of such alteration. We say that our mer chants dealing with the Bank complain that the first intimation they have ever received of such alteration was through the columns of the True Whio. Will the True Why " face the music 1" KI.ECTJON OFJUimLS. AC. Wc arc happy at length to see this subject notic ed in the 7)-e Whig. That paper says: Stop It! We see it sometimes intimated that Major Henry is unfriendly to the proposed amend ments to the Constitution of the Slate of Tennes see, to elect Judges and Attorneys by tho people, submitted to the jtopular vote at tho next August, election. This is not true. Give no heed toany such device to lead off the public mind upon a fal lacious issue, or to unjustly prejudice him before the people. He is the friend of this proposition, and proved his faith by voting for it in the last Legisla ture. The Tntc Whig says more for Maj. IIexp.y than -he has ever said for himself, lie voted to submit the question to the people, but he has not avowed himself in favor of the amendments. Wc hope he U the friend of the amendments, and that he and his friends will aid us in keeping before the people the fact that every voter not voting))-the amendments will be counted against them. If Mai. Hejcry is in favop of the amendments, why couldn't he have said so in tJiat long speech of j bi which the True Whia has published? Jonxsox Jiaa been trying ever since the canvass opened to get him to say he vras iu favor of tbe amend ments, aud has not yet succeeded. OVERTON COUNTY. "Wc have received a long and very interesting letter from "Mountaineer," of Overton county, re porting the debate between the candidates for Gov ernor at Livingston. Having already published one letter from that place, vro must content ourselves ivitli the closing paragraph from our frieiid Moun taineer's letter. He writes: "Gentlemen, you may rest satisfied with the work here to-day. Andrew Johnson is tho man for the occasion; liis is from the people; his sympathies are all for them and his public life lias been devoted to the promotion of their interests. He is a states man of the first order, and would do honor to any position he may occupy, and we think t he people of the county of Overton will do their duty their whole duty in August next, in electing him to the distinguished office for which he ia a candidate." t - -WistttsafeK, Jult-i '53. folUnrt tTr.iiiR.tiriA'Amprieiiii' V. , The tenrtliW July passed ofi-as ;waaf fit witbj lmanv demonstrations dfiov' on thenart'of our popr filiation. jIThere were picnics in various direction3j.i -excursions to .Mount ornon to the White House, -(a placeso.called pp. the Potomac,) and cv.en,..fur.-.

' Thh city is gladdened with information that the President has decided in favor of the plan of bringing water from the Big Falls, as proposed by Capt. Meios, to whomapreliminary examination of .the .subject was committed. This decision is in ac-. cordance with what we had a right to expect from the comprehensive views of the President. It is stated that CoL Davis, the Secretary of War, takes a warm interest in the matter, and will pmh it ear nestly to a consummation. The proper surveys, on whicii will depend the exact location of the aque duct, are of the resort of the War Department The aqueduct, it is also stated, is to be nine feet in stead of seven feet diameter, ami will thus give a much enlarged capacity for supplying water daily. ' The following important provision of law con stitutes the entire 10th section of the Act making appropriations for the Army for the fiscal year end ing the 30lli June, 1853, pamph. laws, page 219. "And be it further enacted, That the Secretary of War beam! is hereby authorized, under the direc tion of the President of the United States, to- em ploy such portion of the corps of topographical en gineers, and such other persons as he may deem ne cessary, to make such explorations and surveys as he may deem advisable, to ascertain the most prac ticable and economical routes fora railroad from the Mississippi river to the Pacific ocean, and that the sum of one hundred aud fifty thousand dollar?, oriiO much thereof " as may bo uecessarry, be and the same is hereby appropriated out. of any money in the Treasury, not otherwise appropriated, to de fray the expenses of such explorations and sur veys." It is now a considerable time since the Secretary, in acocrdance with tho views of President Piekce, ha3 organised this corps with that profound judg ment, both as to the localities and the men select ed to perform the work, which arc characteristic of him. The parties selected for these surveys, at the earliest moment that the season permitted, were in the field operating to effect the" results contem plated by the law. Tho routes selected to be sur veyed are, 1st, the northern, from St. Paul, across the Rocky Mountains, under Gov. Steven's. This is the Oregon route. The next route i3 under Capt. Gukkisok. It is called by some the Central route, from St Louis through the Cachatope Pass, or rath er the direction is to explore a pass which is believed to exist, and which, ifa good one would be prefer able, south of the Bachatope pas, thence across the Grand and Green rivers to the passes in the Sier ra Nevado, and thence to San Francisco. The next route is from Memphis by Pulton, and through Walker's pass. A fourth exploration is to com mence in California, and ascertain the facilities of that which is commonly called the Gila route, but admitting and requiring' explorations above the mouth of the Gila, at any points on the Lower Col orado which may be deemed advisable. These ex plorations will begin at Benecia. and examine from the mouth of the Gila to San Diego. Tho -admirable arrangements made by the Secretary of War will give as complete an exploration of the routes to California for the great Pacific Railroad as the amount of funds appropriated can furnislu No bet ter, distribution could have been made. Instruc tions have been given to collect such information as to the agricultural capacities of the country through which the exploring parties will pass as will be of general utility, while the main object 13 the paramount consideration. This Railroad is es sential to national defence it is a great military road affording greater means of concentrating our forces of defence, or of necessary war of any kind, than any other road or contrivance whatever. It will give greater force to the military arm of the country than two hundred thousand men without it; greater force than a hundred ships of the line, with proportionable otiier naval vessels and equip ments. In addition, it will give us the control to a vast extent of both European and Asiatic commerce, whilo it will equally place at our command the com merce of all North America, and of a part of South America. Whatever plan may be adopled, the Govern ment is in the hands of an administration which will enforce economy in the necessary expenditure. , , . . We have a prospect at present of commencing and finishing this great undertaking the sublimest pub lic work of modern time? under the best possible auspices. Si'wicius.

The Ploriili.111 and Jour nal has lately publinhed a rumor that the Presi dent had determined to act promptly and vignr ously in removing these Indians from Florida. This intelligence is confirmed by the following paragraph in the last Jacksonville Republic: "We are indebted to McQueen Mcintosh, Esq., for the perusal of a note from Senator Mallory, conveying intelligence of the intention of the Administration to make an immediate move toward.? the removal of the Indians in our State. Mr. Mallory has ap plied for the appointment of Gen. Harney to the service. If he does not Urike terror to thesoulof Bowlegs & Co. no man will." Arrest op Count Carlisle at Havana. We learn from the Diario de la Marina, of the 2!)lh tilt., that Count Carlisle has been thrown into prison at Havana, on a charge of having been en gaged in illegal correspondence with certain in habitants of the Island of Jamaica. The allega tion is that the Count, in connection with othrrs, had loaded a vest-el with arms and ammunition which were destined for the use of the Jamaica negroes, who contemplated a revolt. Owing to a slight mistake on the part of the captain of the vessel, the feecret was exposed, and the munitions j of war were seized by the Spanish authorities. Through the intervention of Lord Clarendon, further proceedings in the Count' case were sus- J pended until information could be received from liiii'land. OCrOur readers will not fail to remember that Edmund l!url;e,ofNcw Hampshire, who has shown some dissatisfaction because, probably, he hqs not received as much favor from Gen. Pierce as he desired, and for whom the whig press is now man ifesting so much interest, and whose sentiments now have such great weight with them, is the same hdmund Burke whom they accused during the I tasi I'resiaenuai canvass ot ireeaoil proclivities, and that he had given evidence of it while editing the Washington Union.

Wn t.n,. read a report, and hear it confirmed by an English gentleman who should be well informed on the subject, that the right hearted little Queen of Eng land declined receiving Airs. Stowe at her last draw ing room reception, and we are disposed to give the rumor more credence from the fact that several Am erican ladies were presented, and received honora ble mention in the Court Journal, in which wo find no account of Mrs. Stowe or any of her satellites. The Queen, in doing this, has added another golden link to the chain that was fast drawing us towards our motherland. She has, in her quiet wisdom, done a great deal towards atoning for tho ill-judged interference in our affairs, which at first seemed, from its origin in the royal household, to have met with her tacit approbation. While there rested a doubt with regard to Victo ria's secret or official participation in proceedings uiaiare au insuii to us, ana a bitter mockery ot tbe sufferings amoug her own subjects, our resentment naturally arose, with republican audacity, to the throne itself, ltut the fact tliat Mrs. Stowe did not appear at St James is a sort of proof that our informant is correct when he asserts that efforts were strenuously made to obtain this presentation, and that the Queen refused to accede to them. 1 New York Express. ?Jsi3& WJUl&SP&itMSVlL E&ako, jTuly 141833. , J r ..x.wL. ... . rut it; ii ,r i". .

The President, accom panied by Secretaries Guthrie, Davis, and Camp bell, arrived at half past rive this afternoon. They were met at the depot by an immense concourse of citizens and a large turn out of the military, and were escorted to Barnuni's Hotel. The President rode a white hor.ie, and was enthusiastically re ceived along the route and at Barnum's. A stand was erected and handsomely titled up. The Pres ident was introduced by Major Hollins, and made a brief address, in which he thanked the people for the enthusiastic reception they had accorded him. Secretary Davis and others also spoke. The President said : Mr. Mayor and Fellow-Citizen of ths City of Baltimore: aiy heart is lull, and it would be Uit fiult to express the depth of feeling with which this cordial welcome has impressed me. Your citizens by their partial friendship and more than generous confidence, previously imposed on me a debt of gratitude which years devoted to your service and to the interests and honor of our com mon country can scarcely cancel. (Cheers.) To be thus surrounded by a population, not less distinguished for its chivalry thuu for its intelli gence and tried patriotism, is peculiarly gratify ing; among the pleasant memories suggested by the occasion, who can fail to be reminded when the banner of unbridled, unqualified religious tol eration was first freely given to the breeze. You cannot be in such an atmosphere without feeling its vivifying influence. Every man who has a patriot's lungs must feel it, because every man knows that religious tolpration lies at the founda tion of civil liberty. (Cheers.) No transient traveler can enter this city with out being struck with the evidence of enterprise and honest thrift which everywhere meets the eye. Baltimore has stood promently forth in that as tonishing, progress ot our country which may be truly said to have outmarched prophecy. Her great advantages in a commercial point of view have, of course, always been marked and ap parent by her commanding geographical position so far as internal commerce is concerned. This matter, so forcibly alluded to by the illustrious Washington, us early as 179G, is only beginning to be appreciated even by yourselves: As the great West pours in its boundless resources at the bidding of your enterprise, and the judicious ap plication of your means to these internal improve ments, which leaves the destiny of Baltimore no matter of doubt. (Enthusiastic cheers.) But alter all it is not the increase of population and wealth ; the augmentum of your snipping in terest; your crowded depots teeming with the product both agricultural and mechanical, the wealth of the interior ; the erection of splendid edifices, arising as it were by magfc allot' these combined, which chieflly engross the thoughts of the patriotic citizens and gives his puUe n quicker and prouder throb as he enters your environs and sees those monuments in the distance. They may crumble that is their destiny. Nay, they will moulder and mingle with the common earth, but the inspiration at the deeds of valor they commemorate, which saved you from the presence and the shame of the tread of a foreign soldiery, will perish never. (Applause.) Who shall say what has been the extent or pow er ol the example of self-sacrificing heroism, which signalled the defence of the North PoiHt and Fort Henry in liil4! Applause. It was a dark and trying hour ; we were perplexed, but not in despair, cast down, but not destroyed. When your example and prowess reanimated cour age and confidence everywhere it was felt that the shield of protection, superior to all human power, always recognized by our fathers during their great struggle, was still over us. Let us remem- ! ber it, and ever acknowledge it with humble and gratelul hearts. Who shall say, especially how much your monu ments for those who fell, and your reverence and affectionate esteem for those who survived the conflicts of those anxious days and nights to which I have adverted, has had to do with tree and gal lant lebation of Maryland blood upon so many fields of Mexico! Applause. The fathers of the revolution taught their sons that their first du ty was to their country a duty not to be avoided, but to be performed i 1 tiie face of all consequences and every hazird. Has not the Almighty bless ed to us, their descendants, th ir example, their experience, their lesson more noble praise cannot be bestowed than to say that no State in this confederation has furnished a more impressive complication of the power of that teaching than that before whose people I have the honor to stand. Applause. Mr. Mayor, a pleasant incident conies hack to my memory, to which I may not be censured for adverting. Soon after the hark Kelper anchored wilha portion of the 9th iulantry near the castle of S in Juan d'UIIoa, about the 30th ol June, 1847, another transport come to anchor within a cable's length. We could not discern the ship, but in a few moments we heard pealing forth from her deck the stirring notes ot the Star Spangled Ban ner. The effect was electrical. I thought, probably from association, that the ship was from Baliiniorc, and the fact verified the impression. Boats were lowered, and friendly greetings commenced between the sons of Mary land and New England, which I trust may never be interrupted. Me concluded applause. Mexico axp tib United Statis. Tho "Univer sal," published in the city of Mexico alludes to the riimors which have been circulated in that country and this, that the large increase of the Mexican army provided for by a recent decree of Santa An na, contemplates a declaration of war against the United States. The rumors it pronounces entirely groundless. "In short," it says at the close of its article, "Mexico has no idea of declaring war against the United States." 0 Floiikxce and NAsnviLu: Hailroad. Wc learn fiom tho Florence Gazette tliat the Xashville and Alabama Railroad Company and the Florence and Nashville Railroad Company, have agreed to unite their roads at the State line dividing the States of Alabama and Tennessee. This agreement seals, we believe, all controversy between the two com panies, and on the strength of it the Alabama Com pany have employed Mr. Anderson, a competent engineer, to survey and locate the road from Flor ence to the State line, so as to have it ready to put under contract tho 20th of next month. fj7-Tlie death of the French Emperor, excites the greatest anxiety.

An drew Johnson once proposed to divide as far as practicable, in laying off Congressional districts, uie numoer pi iree wnne voters in the State by the number of members of Congress to which we xy white voter in the Slate equal representation 111 ooiigress, ana is caueu me wnuo oasis. The whig leaders generally, following iri the wake of Gustavus A. Henry, cry out against this measure as favorable to abolitionism, and say they are for laying off congressional districts on the Federal basis', which will allow in the Bame State, one man with five negroes the same representation in Con gress as lour white men. This is what they say. But are they sincere in what they say? What proof have they given of their sincerity! Thelast Legislature passed a bill framed by Gustavus A. Henry himself, laying off the State into Congres sional Districts. Surely in this bill we may ex pect to rind a demonstration, an exemplification of whig principles. If the whig party was sincere in advocating the Federal basis, which includes in its calculation three-fifths of the negroes, we might expect 10 find in this apportionment bill a perfect exemplication of it. In the first congressional district there is an excess of population of nearly seven thousand. In the fifth, seventh and ninth, an excess of up wards of eight thousand in each. In the second district there is a deficiency of upwards of eighteen thousand, and in the fourth a deficiency of eleven thousand. This apportionment bill was the delib erate work of Maj. Henry end the whig leaders of Tennessee. They had full time to make it to their notion. Is it in accordance with the Fed eral basis! We admit that it is formed 011 a basis. But is that basis the Federal basis for which they profess so much regard! We affirm that It is not, and dare any man lo the proof. What then be comes of Major Henry's pretended veneration for the Federal basis! FROM TBS TBIDNE KCLIFSE. fj5" That portion of Mr. Pate's argument, omit ted in his circular address, by mistake, the copy being divided between the compositors, Is and pro ceeds as follows, viz : " Fellow-citizens, there remains only one other question, on which it is necessary for me to slate the position that I occupy, before I close this ad dress, already longer than I intended it to be I mean the election of a United States Senator. On this question 1 have stated, that, if under the circumstances which now exist in Tennessee, the people of the State should elect a majority of democrats to the Legislature, I would consider such a fact, conclusive proof, that tho people of State desire to be represented in the Kenate Ot the United Slates by a democrat, and if Ishouldbe elected, I would under such circumstances vote for A. O. P. Nicholson, or some other worthy democrat. But districted as the State is, it is al most certain that a majority of whigs will be elect ed to tho legislature, and the only question on this subject will be, what whig" shall be chosen to rep resent the State in the United States Senate ! Under such circumstances, should I be Represen tative, my vote will be for Meridith P. Gentry, and every honorable and fair effort, which I can make, shall be made to secure his election. Rear ed within a few miles of his residence, I have known him from my early boyhood, and though sometimes differing with him upon political ques tions, I have always had undounded confidence in his patriotism and political integrity, and I was proud to see him in the late trying scenes, through which he has passed, so act, as to vindicate the cor rectness of opinion I had formed of him, and prove that my confidence inhim was not misplaced. He has so performed his duty that I am willing to trust him in a higher position, and such, I believe, is the sentiment of a large majority of the people of this county. Scarcely a day passes, when I am mingling with the people, that I do not hear whigs, whose confidence in hira was temporarily shaken by misrepresentation, declared that they are now satisfied that they value him more highly than ever before; and I sincerely believe I think I may Eay I know a large majority of the people of William son would vote for him for United States Senator, against any whig in the State, if the election was submitted directly to them. If lam right in this opinion, my views and purposes, on this only ques tion of a party character, likely to come before the next Legislature, are in conformity with those of a majority of my fellow-citizens of William son. And may I not hope, that of such of my whig fellow-citizens as approve my views, will be too magnanimous to vote against me, merely be cause I am conscientiously a democrat! And now, fellow-citizens, it is for you to say whether you will spurn him from your affection for an honest and faithful discharge of a duty which you yourselves had directed wnetheryou will suf fer the man who has done more perhaps than any other to elevate the character of your State, to go down forever, and for no other sin than for doing what you had told him to do. I am persuaded, fellow-citizens, that you will not thus reward merit. Let us sustain and return him to the higher branch of Congress and that very act will speak more than a volume to Northern agitators and the time serving deirniffOBue of the South." ORIGIN OF MOLES IX THE UNITED STATES. Mr. George Washington P. Curtis, in his last paper, under the title of Recollections and Private Memoirs of the life and character of Washington gives the following account of the introduction of mules into this county, which will be found very interesting: Upon Washington's first retirement in 1783, he became convinced of the defective nature of the working animals employed in the agriculture of the Southern States, and set about remedying the evil by the introduction of mules instead of horses, the mule being found lo live longer, be less liable to disease, require less food, and in every respect to be more serviceable aud economical than the horse in the agricultural labor of the Southern States. Up to the year 1773, scarcely any mules were to be found in the American Confederation; a few had been imported from the West Indies, but they were of diminutive size and of little value. So soon as the views on this subject of the illustrious farmer of Mount Vernon were thrown abroad, ho received a present from the king of Spain of a jack and two jennies, selected from the royal stud at Madrid. The jack, called the Royal Gift, was six teen hands, of a gray color,heavily made, of a slug gish disposition. At the same time, the Marquisde Lafayette sent out a jack aud jennies from the Island of Malta; this jack called the Knight of Malta, was a superb animal, black color, with the form of a stag and the lerocity of a tiger. Washington availed him self of the best qualities of the two jacks by cross ing the breeds, and henceobta'neda favorite jack, called Compound, which animal united the size and strength of the Uift with the courage and activity of the Knight. The jack arrived at Mount Ver non, if we miatakc not, early in 1783. i'he Gene ral bred some very superior mules from his coach inares, sending them from Philadelphia for the pur pose. In a few years the estate of Mount Vernon became stocked with mules of a superior order, ris ing to the height of sixteen hands, and of great power and usefulness, one wagon team of four mules selling at the sale of the General's effects for eight hundred dollars. In no proportion of Washington's various labors and improvements in agriculture, was he so par ticularly entitled to be hailed as a public bene factor, as in tho introduction of mules in farming labor, those animals being at this time almost ex clusively used for farming purposes in the Southern States. The Safest Seat. The frequency of collis ions on railroads has raised tbe question, which is the place of greatest security in a railroad train! The Railroad Journal gives the following as an answer: Jt is very wen Known inaitne car near est the engine is exposed to the least dust, and that the rear car of a train is generally safer than the front car. The safest is probably the last car but one, in a train of more than two cars; that is, there are fewer chances ol accidents to this than any other." If it is a way train at moderat speed, or any . . i- -.mi ii-.; : :ui c train stanuingsiiu, a coinaiuii ia puosmic uuui uu other train in the rear; in which case thelast car receives the first shock. Again the engine and tho front cars ofa train will often go over a broken rail, or a cow, or stone, without derailment, while the last car, having nothing to draw it into the lineof the train, is free to leave tho track. Text to the forward car, the rear is probably the most unsafe in tlie train. The safest seat is probably near the center of the last car but one, aud, in a very long train, in the centers of the last two or three cars not to the last. Piee. The cotton factory of Messrs.

A MOST strange and irreconcilable fact meets us at the very threshold of our remarks on this valuable medi cine. It is this: that no medical preparation adapted to the various diseases ol children and youtn, nas ever been offered to the publif, while at the same time it is established by the most accurate tables of mortality that one-half the hu man jiiinutf an Mjort reachiuqine ageoj jtre yeart: W e should sunpose that to this creat class of human suf ferers tins one-half of the race the most anxious and ear nest attention would have been given: that medical skill would have been taxed to its utmost capacity to tiud out a medicine to which mothers and nurses might resort under the constantly recurring necessities which present them selves in this connection. The world is literally crowded with medicines for adult, but towards the sufferings of chil dren no one has seemed to tum proper attention. No one has regarded their condition. Cootie has seemed to think it possible that the ravages of disease and death among Oim might be stayed. It is true that there are numerous Ver mifuges and Cordials of some value, but none of these is confined exclusively to one or two forms of disease. The Graefenberg Children's Panacea is the only medicine extant in either hemisphere th"t Is at all worthy of being called a Children's Medicine: or tliat supplies the great want allu ded to. It is invaluable and unsurpassed in cases of infantile jaun dice, griping and flatulency, diarrlxca, cutaneous eruptions, the thraui, teething, CUling of the fundament, convulsions, rickets, ringwoi m, scald lieod.measles, croup, worms, chol era infantum, wasting of the body, and all diseases incident to the years of childhood.
