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 tinder the care of a physician but had received no relief, and her case was considered hopeless. As a last resort she purchased a bottle of Dr. Jay ne's Expectorant, which caused her to expectorate freely, gradually ceased her cough, and is rapidly restoring her to health. We have no hesitation in saying that this preparation of Dr. Jayne for cure of coughs, colds, influenza, asthma, con sumptions, &c. is the most valuable medi cine ever offered to the American public. There is no quackery about it Dr. Jayne is one of the most skilful practising physi cians in Pennsylvania; and wherever his various preparations have been thoroughly tested, he is looked upon as a great public benefactor. Somerset (Me.) Journal. DYSPEPSIA AND LIVER COM PLAINT may be cured with certainty, and at a trifling expense, byT taking every night, at bed-time, two or three of Jay ne's Sanative Pills, and a dose of either his Al terative or Vermifuge three times a day. This treatment never fails to cure. WELL, WELL! I'M BECOMING! BALD, and can't help it, is frequently expressed by those whose Hair, (like a false friend) is leaving them.

Not less than five hundred mem bers were in attendance at the late Demo cratic State Convent ion in Virginia; let our friends come up to Raleigh, on the 12th of April, not by tens and twenties, but by fif ties and hundreds.

These suggestions are thrown out from ho desire to thrust our views upon our friends, but from a sin- cere desire to promote the best interests of theparty. I So far as this Congressional District is concerned, the Democrats of Wake.it will be recollected, suggested that the Conven- tion to appoint Delegates to Baltimore be held here on the 12th day of next month, i This was done, because it was thought the. time would be convenient, as the Delegates to the State Convention might also be charged with the dut v of annointinn Dele nates to Baltimore: but our friends in War- ren, we perceive, have recommended Nash- ville as the place and the 27th day of April as the time for holding the Convention.!

Scott and Worth, relative to the late difficulties in the army, subsequent to the publication of the army orders, censu sing severely certain letters written to the United States. The supplement does not appear to have been sent in this direction, but we find in a Western paper the follow ing brief notice of the correspondence: Gen. Worth addressed a , letter to Gen. Scott stating that he learned with astonish ment that it was the opinion of the Army that the imputation of scandalous conduct mentioned in a general order, referred to him, and asking if such was the Intention of the Commander-in-chief. Gen. Scott replied that the order clear ly expressed that he meant to apply the imputation to the author of the letter sign ed "Leonidas." - Gen. Worth rejoined, and said he did not consider the answer 'satisfactory. Gen. Scott replied that he could not be more explicit. ' He had nothing to do with the -suspicions of others, and, if he had valid information of the authorship, he would prosecute the parties before a court martial. ' ; '. n-r: :--... Gen. Worth replied that he supposed the Commander regarded him as not de serving a satisfactory answer, and, feeling himself aggrieved, he should appeal to the President. He concluded by accusing Scott of acting in a manner unbecoming an UfJ a ntIeman- - Gen. Scott then ordered Worth under arrest, for behaving with contempt and disrespect towards the Commander-in-chief. From the Richmond Enquirer. Mr. Clay and Mrs. Polk.

The fatal Chloroform ase. The Cincinnati papers of Friday last, contain references to the case of Mrs. Simmons, who suddenly sunk, as in death, while having teeth extracted, under the influence of chloroform. The Commercial says: "The post mortem examination of the body of Mrs. Simmons had not taken place last eveuing, and the attending physicians ex-l press the hope of , a possibility that she may yet be restored to life the body be ing still warm! Efforts are made, of course, to restore her. There were several rumors on Thurs day afternoon, that she had partially re vived. But the Cincinnati Queen City of the 24th ult., says that every effort was made to restore her, but in vain; the vital spark had fled. Fatal Experiment with Chloroform. A young lady, daughter of Mr. Mac donald, a baker in Catharine street, in this city, recently met her death in , the most awful manner, from , the use of this dqw fashionable but most dangerous preparation. About three weeks ago, the ether was em ployed to allay the toothache; , but subse quently the sufferer was supposed. to die, from what cause does not appear. :The apparent death, however, was only a trance, or protracted swoon; for, on opening the coffin a day or two ago, the unfortunate girl had turned round upon her face, and in her agony and desperation had actually destroyed two of her fingers, on recover ing from her temporary death by ether. The coroner's investigation should elicit the fact as Ao who prescribed a remedy which produced this most frightful result. ' AT. K True Sun. From the Ut-teih Register. How shall it be accounted for?

The engine, as soon as the horse was seen to back, sounded the alarm, and the train was nearly stopped when the fatal collision took place. The unfortunate ladies who thus lost their lives were Mrs. Osborn, wife of Mr. Abraham Osborn, of Fitchburg, and her daughter, Mrs. Jacob Tolman, of West Sterling. The head of one was severed from the body. Y ' Commercial. An Importer. Many of our readers have noticed. that nearly every Sunday, in front of "Cathedral has stood an old beggar, who, tin cup in hand, presented the strongest kind of appeal, by his wo begone appearance, to the sympathies of all who passed by. The police of the First Municipality have lately discovered that, far from being an object of chanty, he is a holder of some $15,000 worth of property in Lafayette, and about 5,000 deposited in the various banks of the city. A very largeportion of this sum has been raised by begging, which he has followed for many years. r During the week : his "tramp" is on the Levee; and on -Sunday his scene of operation is confined to the different churches. When arrested by Officer Trescazes, he had on his person six dollars in dimes an'd picayunes. -His name is Antonio Fanchieu, and, with his wife, he has carried on the most systemat ic scheme of imposition thattve have heard of for a long time. -AT.

Woman frozen to Death. The Prov idence papers report the death of a woman named Welch, in the woods near that place on Monday night. The woman lived in Olney ville, and in the afternoon was on a visit to some friends about a mile and a half distant from her home. In the eve ning she started on her return, in a snow storm, goflost in the woods and wasfroz en to death. She has left a husband and six children. Alleviation from Cough. Persons us ing stoves for warming apartments, will find that a small piece of common resin, dipped in the water. which is placed in a vessel on the stove, will add a peculiar property to the atmosphere of the room, which will 'give great relief to persons troubled with a cough, who breathe the atmosphere of the apartment. The heat of the water is sufficient to throw off the 'roma of the resin, and gives the same re lief as is afforded by a combustion of the resin! It is preferable to combustion, be eaiise - the" evaporation is more durable. The same resin may be used or weeks.
