lit. An humble acknowledgment to the Su

to oar fathers in their successful Revolutionary

independence, and the onion of these States.
id. The perpetuation of the Federal Union, as
the palladium of our civil and religious liberties,
and the only ?ure bulwark of American lndepen-|
8d. At**rican$ mu*t ruU Amnio*, and to this
end, mtfiiw-born citizens should be selected for all
State, Federal, and municipal offices or government
MBjrtoyment, in preference to all others: never
4th. Persons bora of American parents redding
temporarily abroad, should be entitled to all the
rights of native-born citizens; but
?th. No person should be selected for politic*]
station, (whether of native or foreign birth,) who
recognise* any aBegionce or obligation of any de
scription to say foreign prince, potentate or power,
ar who refuses to reoeeiise the Federal and State
constitution* (each within its sphere) as paramount
to all other law*, as rule* of political action.
6th. The unqualified recognition and mainte
nance of the reserved rights of the several 8tate?,
and the cultivation of harmony and fraternal good
will, between the eitixeas of the severe1 State*, and
to this end, non-interference by Congress with
questions appertaining ?ui?ly to the individual
States, and non-intervention by each State with
the affaire of any other State.
7th. The reonrritioa of the right of the native
born and naturalised citiaeua of the United State*,
permanently reMiag in anv Territory thereof, to
frame their onnstitktion ana laws, and to regulat*
their demciic and soonu affiurs in their own mode
sutyeot only to the provisions of ths Federal Oou
atitution, with the privilege of admisaion into the
Uuion whenever they have the requisite popula
tion for one Representative in Congress. Providea
ui temps, that none but those who are citlsens of
the United States, under the constitution and laws
thereof and who have a fixed residence in an/
sjich Territory, ought to participate in the forma
tion of the constitution, or in the enactment of
laws for said Territory or State.
8th. An enforcement of the principle that no
State or Territory ought to admit others than citi
?ens of the United States to the riirbt of suffrage,

?th. A change in the laws of natnralimtiou,
making a continued residence of twenty-one years,

paupens, and persons convicted of crime, from land

12th. The maintenance and enforcement of all
laws constitutionally enacted, until said laws shall

competent judicial authority.
18th. Opposition to the reckieas and unwise
potfcy ol the present administration in the general
manngeinent of our national affairs, and more es
pecially as shown in removing "Americans " (by
designation) and conservatives in principle, from
office, and placing foreigners and ultraiats in their
places ; as shown in a truckling nubserviency to
the stronger, and an insolent and cowardly brava
do towards the weaker powers; as shown in re
opening sectional agitation, by the repeal of the
Missouri Compromise; as shown in granting to un
naturalized foreigners the right of suffi-agein Kan
sas and Nebraska; as shown in its vacillating course
an the Kansas and Nebraska question; as shown
in the corruptions which pervade some of the de
partments of the government j as shown in dis
gracing meritorious naval officers through preju
dice or oaprioe; and as shown in the Wandering
mismanagement of our foreign relations.
14th. Therefore, to remedy existing evils, and
preveut the disastrous consequences otherwise re
sulting therefrom, we would build up the "Ameri
can party" upon the principles hereinbefore stated
10th. That each State Council shall have autho
rity to amend their several constitutions, so as to
abolish the several degrees, and institute a pledge
of honor, instead of other obligations for fellow
ship and admission into the party.
10th. A free and open discussion of all politioal
principles embraced in our platform.

blotches on the head, fade, and extremities, projrres

Or. Johnston pledges himself to preserve the most
inviolable secrecy; and, from his extensive practice
iu the first hospitals ia Europe and America, he can
, confidently recommend a safe and npoedycuio to the
unfortunate victim of this horrid disease.
It is a melancholy fact that thousands fau victim*
to this dreadftil complaint, owing to the unskllful
uess of ujnorant pretenders, who, by the use of that |
deadly poieon, mercury, ruin the constitution, and
either send the unfortunate sufferer to an untimely
grave, or else make the residue of lift 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 the hack and Limbs, Pains in the
Bead, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Muscular Power,
Palpitation of the Heart, Dyspepaia, 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, Conftision of Ideas De
pression of Spirits. Evil Forebodings, Aversion to
Society, Love of Solitude, Timidity, Ac., are some of
the evils produced.
Thousands of persons of all ages, cau sow judge
what is the cause of their declining health losing
their vigor, becoming weak, pale, and emaciated
have a singular appearance abeut the eyes, eoturh,
and symptoms of Consumption.
Married persons, or those contemplating marriage
being aware of physical weakness, should immedi
ately consult Dr. J. and be restored to perfecj health.
Dr. Johnston's Invigorating Remedy, for
Orgaaic Weakness.
By this greet and important remedy, Weaknees of
the Organs are speedily cured, and fall vigor re
stored.
Thousands of the most nervous and debilitated
whe had lost all hope, have been immediately re
lieved. All impediments to Msrriajre, Physical, or
Mental Disqualification, Nervous Irritability, Trem

ful kind, speedily oared by Dr. Johnston.

Who have injured themselves by a oertain practice
indulged in when alone?a habit fre^-itly learned
from evil companions, or at school, ue effects of
which are nightly felt> even when asleep, and if not
cured, rendem nmmage impoaaible, and destroys
both mind and body, should apply immediately.
W hat a pity that a young man, the hope of his
country and the darling of his parents, should be
snatched from all prospects and enjoyments of life,
by the oonaequeuoee of deviating from the v*th of
nature, and indulging in a oertain aeoret habit Such
persons, before contemplating
Marriage,
.Should reflect that a sound mind and body are the
most necessary requisites to promote connubial hap
pmess. Indeed, without these, the journey through
life becomes a weary pilgrimage; the pros pact hourly
view; the mind beonaes shadowed
with despair, and filled with the melancholv reflec
tion, that the happiness of another beemnee blighted
with our own.
