This medicine has already proved itself to be all that it has been recommended, by those who have given it a fair test in this country, and the demand for it increases daily. We have just heard of an impor tant cure of Asthma, which has been effect ed by the use of it, in a neighboring town the case was that of a female who had for a long time been under the care of a physician but had received no relief, and her case was considered hopeless. Asa last resort she purchased a bottle of Dr. Jayne's Expectorant, which caused her to expectorate freely, gradually ceasnd her cough, and is rapidly restoring her to health. We have no hesitation in saying) that this nrenaratinn of Br. Javne for cure of couchs. colds, influenza, asthma. . j sumptions, &c. is the most valuable medi cine ever offered to the American public. There is no quackery about it Dr. Jay tie is one of the most skilful practising physi- j cians in Pennsylvania; and wherever his'on ear you have lorn.eil as regards my various preparations have neen thoroughly tested, he is looked upon as a great public benefactor.

Taylor to the Hon. Joseph R. Ingersoll, was read at a public meeting in Philadelphia, on the 22nd ult. by Hon. Washington Barrdw. Gen. Taylor now beyond dispute stands before the country confessedly "a whig in principle," and as such must be regarded by his supporters for the Presidency. Head Quarters r Army of Occupation. Camp near Monterey, Mexico, Aug. 3, 1847. - Hon. Jos. R. Ingersoll Dear S;r I have the pleasure (o ac- knowledge the receipt of your esteemed, and faithfuliy-io ih&iest oC my ability, in letter of the 7th ultimo, which has just accordance'with the principles of the Con reached me, in which you say, I had the stitution, as near aI-r.an do so, as it was honor of being called on last evening to address a mass meeting of the Whigs of the City and County of Philadelphia. At that meeting your name was1 frequently men tioned in connection with the office of Chief Magistracy. I stated to that meet ihg, as I had before stated in my place in the House of Representatives at Washing- j ton, that you were it Whig not indeed an J ultra partisan Whig but a Whig in prin ciple.' All of which Is entirely correct: and after the discussion which occurred in both houses of Congress' ai the, last session, growing but bf Ihc'cnpitufation'of Monte rey, in which discussion y ou thought pro per to defend my conduct in regard to that transaction, when assailed somewhat, hot ent.rely on party grounds, in the House of which' ybu were a memberfor which you have my sincere thanks which was done in such a way by those who disap proved that measure 1 cttn hardly imag ine how any one who was present and heard the speeches on that occasion or read them lifter they were published could welt mistake the complexion of my polities. At the last Presidential canvass, with out interfering in any wny with the same, it was well known to all with whom I mix ed, whigs and democrats, for 1 had no con cealments in the matter, that 1 was decid edly in favor of Mr.' Clay's election, and would now prefer seeing in that office to any individual in the Union; certain! much more so at anytime to my.seIC In dependent of his great talents and long ex perience in government affairs. I consider hi views and those of the whigs, for the most part, are more nearly assimilated as regards political matters to those of Mr Jefferson than their opponents in whose political creed I was reared, and whosi opinions in matters of State I have never lost sight of, as well as endeavored to con form to them as near as , circumstances woultl permit. My commission as a Lieutenant in .ihe Army was conft-rreil hy him a short time before he retired frorr. Although no one can appreciate ir.i. highly than 1 do the too favourable opin- fitness for the first civil office in our coun try (which I consider, should I reach it, is rather too much of an experiment) as well as duly grateful for your aid in bringing me so promptly before the nation for the 7 : . I . .i... in respect to the subject ofthe Presidency which is, that 1 am no politician. Neat territory, I may well say constantly on duty; the two last in Mexico or on its im mediate bonier; during which time 1 have not passed one night under the roof of a house. You may, therefore, very readily sup- . Pose ulK,er sucn circumstance, i nave nut .little time to devote to the consideration ! or investigation of meat political Questions 1 I . . I or subjects, or to their discussion, nor have I attempted to do so, or to be mixed up with political men or measures in any way, not ever having voted for one of our Chief Magistrates since I joined the army, hav ing for the most part been serving or sta tioned beyond the limits of the States. , I must say I have no wish for the Presiden cy, and cannot consent to fee exclusively ... the candidate of a party.. And if I am one at all, or to be made so t the coming elec tion, it must be home in mind that I have been, or will be made so by others, with out any agency of mine in the matter. Independent of my wishes, I greatly doubt my want ofthe necessary qualifica tions to discharge the duties properly, of an office which wa4 filled and adorned by a Washington, a Jefferson, as well as sever al others, of the purest, wisest, and most iircomhlished statesmen and Datriots of this or any other age or country.

Be this as it may, if ever I occupy the White House it must be by the spontane ous movement of the people, without any action of mine in relation to it; without pledges other, than I have previously stated; a strict adherence to the provisions of the Constitution;' so that I could enter on the arduous and responsible duties appertain ing to said office untrammelled; so that I tould be the President of' the country and j notofapaity. j With consideration of great respect and j esteem, 1 remain your obedient servant, 2.

Taking the data which rumor allows as the elements of 'calculation, we ay acquire a- territory greater in extent an any country in Europe except Rus- m th sia.
