This may certify that 1 have used Perry Davis's Vegetable Pain Killer with great success in cases of Cholera Infantum, Common Bowel Complaint, Bron chitis, Coughs, Colds, Ac., and would cneerfully re commend it as a family medicine. JAMES C. BOOMER, Pastor of the Baptist Church. This may certifv, that I have used Perry Davis's Vegetable Pain Killer in numerous cases, and believe it to be a very valuable medicine. I have prescribed it extensively in Bowel Complaint, (particularly for children,) and it is, in my opinion, superior to any preparation I have ever used, for the relief of those diseases. When given to children, 1 have always combiued it with the syrip of gum arabic, say ten drops to a tea-spoonful ot the syrup, well nnxed. Others have mixed it with milk and molasses, equal parts. A. HUNTING, M. D. Sir : I deem it a duty I owe to society, especially to the afflicted, to otter this testimonial in lavor of that estimable medicine?" Perry Davis's Pain Killer." When passing through Galena, some two weeks ago, I purchased at your agency, a 25 cent bottle. I was then suffering from a severely bruised hand. I applied it in the store, and was astounded at the al most instantaneous relief. Before 1 left the store, the inflammation was removed, and in less than an hour, the pain ceased. In two days my hand was well as ever. Findiugit to be really a remedy I determined to try its effects as a curative for the Piles, to which I had peen a martyr for years. After five dressings, my piles were amongst the things that had been. I am now entirely free from them, and in as good health as ever I was in my life. I have recommended thePain Killer to others simi larly afflicted, and always with good effect. Several of the captains of the upper river boats carry with them a constant supply, and consider it oue of the most valuable medicines ever discovered. I am, dear sir, respectfully yours, JOSEPH O.

Dr. Johnston, Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, London S-aduate from one of the most eminent Colleges ot e United States, and the greater part of whose life has been spent in the hospitals of London, Paris Phila delphia and elsewhere, has effected some or the most astonishing cures that were ever known. Many trou bled with ringing in the ears and head when asleep great nervousness, being alarmed at suddeu sounds' and bashfulness, with frequent blushing, attended sometimes with derangement of mind, were cured immediately. A Certain Disease. When the misguided and imprudent votary of plea sure finds he has imbibed the seeds of this painful disease, it too often happens that an ill-timed sense of shame or dread of discovery deters him from apply ing to those who, from education and respectability can alone befriend him, delaying till Unconstitution al symptoms of this horrid disease make their ap pe ranee, such as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose nocturnal pains in the head and limbs, dimness of sight, deafness, nodes on the shin bones and arms blotches on the head, face, and extremities, progres sing with frightful rapidity, till, at last, the palate ol the mouth or the bones of the nose fall in, and the victim of this awful disease becomes a horrid object of commiseration, till death puts a period to his dread ful sufferings by sending him to " that bourne from whence no traveller returns." To such, therefore, Dr. Johnston pledges himself to preserve the most inviolable Recrecy; and, from his extensive practice in the first hospitals in Europe and America, he can confidently recommend a safe and speedy cure to the unfortunate victim of this horrid disease. It is a melancholy fact that thousands fan victims to this dreadful complaint, owing to the unskilful [ neHS of ignorant pretenders, who, by the use of that deadly jjoiton, unrc-ury, ruin the constitution, and either Bend the unfortunate sufferer to an untimely grave, or else make the residue of life miserable. Take Particular Notice. Dr. J., addresses all those who have injured them selves by private and improper indulgences. These are some of the sad and melanoholy effects produced by the early habits of youth, viz: Weakness of tho Back and Limbs, Pains in the Head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Muscular Power Palpitation of the Heart, Dyspepsia, Nervous Irrita bility, Derangement of the Digestive Functions General Debility, Symptoms of Consumption, Ac. Mentally. The fearful effects on the mind are much to be dreaded?Loss of Memoir, Confusion of Ideas De Sression of Spirits, Evil Forebodings, Aversion to ociety, Love of Solitude, Timidity, Ac., are some of the evils produced. Thousands of persons of all ages, can now judge what is the cause of their declining health, losing their vigor, becoming weak, pale, and emaciated, have a singular appearance about the eyeB coujrh and symptoms of Consumption. Married perBons, or those contemplating marriage being aware of physical weakness, should immedi ately consult Dr. J. and be restored to perfect health.

Such persons, before contemplating Carriage, Should reflect that a sound mind and body are the most necosMry raqulsitoB to promote eonnubial hap piness.

To My Countrymen : Urged by friends from different quarters, wh<? believe that an address put forth by me, as the eldest sou of the founder of the Whig party In tha United States, would be productive of good, anil might tend to induce many to give that calm re duction to the present political condition of our beloved country which ft so imperatively demand-1, notwithstanding the objections which present themselves to mo, and which are many aud gnive, I have determined, from a sense of duty, to com ply with their wishes; to appeal to tho patriotism of my fellow-countrymen, and, if my warning voice may be heard in this momentous crisis, to urge upon them the selection of such candidates for the Presidency and Vicc Presidency of the United States as can alone give permanence to our insti tutions, and bring peace to our distracted country. Content to remain in tho situation in which Providence has placed me, I have never aspired to any political office. I have, however, from my position, an acquaintance with the public men of the United Slates and their political histories which few, otherwise situated, could halo ob tained. We aro called upon to select between James Buchanan, Millard Filhnwre, and Colonel John C. Fremont for the next Presidency. As for the last named of these gentlemen, I have been unable yet to learn upon what considerations his friends base his claims. It is but the madness of party spirit and sectionalism which could attempt the elevation of such a man to the high office to which he aspires. My father thought Buchanan weak and corrupt; wanting, us General Jackson has it, in moral firm nets. I have seon no reason to vary my opinion from his. Mixed up, .as he is, in the old " Bar gain and Corruption" plot, his card to the Tele graph newspaper in July, 1827, in which he savs, (I attempt not to give the word*, but the sub stance,) "Mr. Adams has been elected to the 1 residency by Mr. ('lay's agency; Mr. Clay has been appointed Secretary of State by Mr. Adams; the people will draw their own inferences;" his attempts to prove in public speeches in 1844, in Pennsylvania, that Mr. Polk was a better tariff man than Mr. Clay, furnish such a damning record of weakness and corruption, that I cannot con ceive how even any Democrat of the old line, 1 mean Jackson Democrat, could give him his sup port. Who coidd believe, then, that any old-line Whig, any friend of my father, would be found enlisted in his cause ? Whether as author or signer of the Ostend manifesto, he has shown an utter want of those statesmanlike qualities which are requisite In a President of the United States. The time has come when every lover of his country should spaak out boldly and fearluasly. I shall not shrink from the duty. Too much is at stake to tolerate silence in any one who is informed as to the political histories of <ither Mr. Fillmore or Mr. Buchanan. Colonel Fremont has none. Turn we now to Millard Fillmcre. Hyperion to a Satyr. By the act ol Providence cailed to the Presidency of the United States, we see him na tional aud conservative in all respects; uphold ing the constitution, carrying out its compromises; attending to the interests of every section ; re spected both at home and abroad. On the com pletion of his term, hailed by honest Whigs and honest Democrats everywhere, with " well done thou good and faithful servant," &c. Can an American public halt in its opinion be tween such men? Is slavery agitation never to be put to rest ? Is squatter sovereignty and fil ibusterism to be tolerated by free and enlight ened Americans ? Esau-like, are we ready to sell our birth-rights for a mess of pottage ? Forbid it, Almighty God! Away with the wretched plea of availability.? Let us do what is right, and look to God with honest consciences for the result. To the old line Whigs of the Ashland District I take leave to say, I honor them for their course. In their own approving consciences they already feel their reward. They want no offices, they acted for the good of their country, and they have come nobly up to the work. No cry of availabil ity could swerve them. In pledging their suppott of Mr. Fillmore, they do only what Uieirold leader would do, with all his might, could he now once more address his country. I write warmly, for I feel deeply the importance of the crisis through which we are ?? bout to pass. I believe the " spirits of the Just made perfeet," if they ar$ ever permitted to look down upon the aftkirs of this earth, are now bending their approv. ing glances upon the efforts of the friends of F II mote and Donelson.to elevate to the high offioes of President and Vice President those distinguished and trustworthy citiaens. Look at Kansas; what has produced the state of things now being enacted there ? Is it not the weak and imbecile Administration of Franklin Fierce? Has not James Buchanan adopted the acts of his Administration as part of his platform? And can our abused country submit to such an other Administration for four years longer? Away with such miserable abortions. In Mfl lard Fillmore we have a statesman, calm, and wive, and fearless, who can still the element of discord, and advance the best interests of our country. Brothers of the American party, stand to your arms and be of good cheer! National and con servative men throughout the land are gathering to our standard. A few weeks, I trust, will pro duce such ri-Rults as shall forever put to rest ?**<* tionaJiarn, fiilibusterism, squatter sovereignty, and everything that shall tend to mar the integrity, harniouy, and peace of this glorious Confederacy. Respectfully, your ob't serv't, THOH. H. CLAY, Grand President of the Council of Ky. Mansfield, Sept. 8, 1850. What Noit f ? -. The Democratic and Republican parties have mado us familiar with app?al* to foreigners, but Catholics as such, h>ve hitherto never, we believe, been addressed and their political support request ed. What honest American heart will not sicken at reading the following advertisement clipped from the columns of the New York Fremont jour ? nals. Wo for the country when such electioneer ing aa this is tolerated. Who dare now claim that the Republican party bears any similarity to the American ? A Campaign Tract?Catholics Attention.? Hear what Pope Gregory says about the slave trade, and those who deal iu slaves. H?r hi* anathemas denounced on all those who in any way countenance slavery, including, of course, those who, by voting for Buchanan or Fillmore, uphold the infamous traffic. READ POPE GREGORY'S UtJLL. The Catholic clergy in Amcrica, entirely ignor ing or losing sight of the above document, issued a few years ago, it remains for Protestants to pub lish the same for the benefit of all true Catholics, none of whom would caio to vote for Buchanan or Fillmore after reading the proclamation of his Ho liness. They would rather vote for John C. Fre mont, who is pledged to prostrate " the slave oli garchy," and to extend the area of freedom. Fre mont and Dayton Clubs can be supplied with the above bull, illustrated by a handsome cut of the Pope, surrounded by his cardinals, engaged in the I work of freeing a slave from his chains?in addi tion to other suitable matter, snoh as Daniel O'Con ' lull's views on slavery, also those of other celebra ted Irishmen, together with a map showing up, in suitable colors, the free and slave States of the Union, all published together in an eight-page tract, which should be scattered broadcast among American Catholics ; it is a knock-down argument, anil must hare a telling effect on that class of vo tei-P.

Catholics aro told that they will not <t>te for Buchanan or Fillmore after reading the BifU. The false assertion is made tiiat Fillmore is pledged to slavery, and the Bull of the Pope to set up as authority to Catholics. They are to re gard that; whether or not enlightened on slavery itself. Then, a ^n? notice the crawling, sycophant ic meanness'of paragraph concerning the pic ture of the Pope *^>4 Cardinals. Shame on any American man that <?uM such an advertise ment, and on anv pari'*' ^h*t -w|U tolerate mch ap peals. The fortunes of"h""?t*wW'Cft<w?tB must indeed | be getting desperate. A Fremonter's s>.^Utiinriit. Henry C. Wright, Vho is lecturing for Fremont in Michigan, has written a letter to Win. Lloyd Garrison, in which he gives utterance to the fol lowing infamous sentiment: "My text is?down with tho American I'nion' up with the Northern Republic! The thoughts of thoucan Is are turned to this glorious consumma tion by recent events in Washington and Kansas.'' Traitor as he is, this fellow is honest. He utters boldly what all the other Black Republicans aim at and desire, but dare not say so at present for fear of public indignation. With the many evidences of the disunion principles of the Fremont Aboli tionists which have been laid before thQ people, it is astonishing that he should be supported by so large a body of citizens as have rallied under his black banner. Treason is rife In the land, and it behooves the patriotic, national men of all parties to rally together to put it down. Fikmont AN? His Rkljgioh.?The Charleston Courier, alluding to its previous assei tion that Col. Fremont was always regarded as a member of the Catholic Church during his residence in that city, says: " We agree with the Now York Commercial Ad vertiser, and cam ot think that Fremont will dare to deny publicly the assertion we have made.? Since our first statement of that assertion, we have received corroborutive evidence from distinct and independent sources, and we leave it before the public, inviting and requostinga refutation and an thoritativo contradiction, if such can be given." Arrival or Delegates.?Among (ho delegates that have arrived in the city is the Hon. Francis Granger, an old-line Whig, unchanged and un changeable. He is in excellent health and fiue spirits, and reports the Empire State as sure for its " favorite son," Millard Fillmore. There is also quite a largo delegation here from Tennessee, who are stopping at the Eutaw House. They won't admit that there id even a " ghost of a chance " for Buchanan in that State. N'ue of the delegates from Georgia have also arrived, and represent the prospects of Mr. Fill more in that State as most cheeiiug,?expressing great confidence that he will receive the doctoral vote. The weakness of Mr. Buchanan at the North as evidenced by the result in Maine, Iowa, and Arkansas, is bringing conviction to the South that Mr. Fillmore, the national candidate will be the only real opponent of Fremont in New York, Pennsylvania, or New Jersey, and that his friends must be cheered by Southern support to enable them to keep tho electoral vote of those States out of the hands of Fremont.?Haltimore Ameri can. Impressive Elocution.?Rev. Josiah Varden, a few evenings ago, in a congregation in this city delivered an exhortation. He commenocd by asking, " How old arc you?" Having asked the question, he paused a moment, and with increased earnestness repeated it, "How old are you?" An elderly lady in the congregation?supposing that, as the rye of the speaker was fixed upon bar, the interrogation was personal, hesitated a moment, and then responded, 44 Really, Bir, I cannot fell you exactly bow old I am!" The preacher was well nigh thrown off his balance, but he proceeded to enforce the importance of his theme?tho necessity of preparation for death and judgment. So much for impressive delivery?Pro. tettant. IiDCK at Last.?John H. Thompson, of Smythe county, Virginia, who went to California several years ago and labored apparently without suoces*, bat who, on leaving to come home, concluded to invest a small amount in a piece of land, has just received information that his laud is now valued at $300,000.
