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

to the Hon. Joseph R. Ingersoll, was read
at a public meeting in Philadelphia, on the

Gen. Taylor now beyond dispute stands

by his supporters for the Presidency.

Wd will not expatiate upon the amount
of indemnity whfch the treaty is said to se
cure to us. 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-
sia. But upon this point, we will do the
New York Globe the justice to say that its
statements of statistics are more accurate
than the others which we have felt it our
duty to correct above. The following is
the extract from ! the 4G lobe" upon this
point: ; !
The fifteen millions we are to pay Mex
ico is considered hy some too great a sum.
But when we consider that Upper Califor-
t;isco will beours.VH-Thi9 bay iis said to be
large enough to contain the united navies

The sum' paid Mexico is a mere trifle, con
sidering the magnitude of the acquisition.
In ten years time the bay of San Francisco,
and thirty miles, around it, could : be sold
to a commercial company for three times
the sum allowed Mexico. ! . rv. : ;! '
'''No1 matter what' 'others may say, we

years Mexico will be knocking at our door
for admission; and we will let her in. r o

Lower California, about which there are
some doubts. v
The remaining part of Mexico, which
will be left for the territory of that repub-
lie, will be about 900,000 square miles;
consequently more than one third . of the
territory of the American States, as it ex-
isted before the war, (exclusive of Texas,)
is to be ceded to the United States.
