Mrs. Turner Has beenaSliclcd with Dyspepsia and Sick Headache for about five years, which continued to grow more severe. It is my opinion that one more turn of it would have closed her mortal career. She took four bottles of your Vermifuge, and one box'of Sanative Pills, and by the blessing of God accom panying the means, she is cured "of her af fliction. We had tried all the physicians, far and near, to noV effect,' until We used your medicine. We gave the Vermifuge: to our children for worms, and it had a good effect. I have taken pains to ssnd to Erie for your medicines for sometime, and they have effected so many cures, that we want you to appoint an agent here, lours. J- L. TURNER.

Scrofula. in all its multiplied forms, wheth er in that of King's Evil, Enlargement of the Glands or Bones, Goitre, White Swel lings, Chronic Rheumatism, Cancer, Dis eases of the Skin or Spine, or of Pulmona ry Consumption, emanate from one and the same cause, which is a poisonous principle inherent in the human system. Therefore, unless this principle can be destroyed, no radical cure can be effected; but if the prin ciple upon which the disease depends is re moved, a cure must of necessity follow, no matter under what form the disease should manifest itself. This, therefore, is the reason why Jayne's Alterative js so uni versally successful in removing so many malignant diseases.

Now is the lirfie to shakeoff thc shackles of Federalism, and for her to wheel into the ranks of the Democratic States, where she belongs- Her interests, as an agricultural community, are indenti fied with the success of the Republican principles. , Under such a leader as Reid, we shall struggle for the mastery with confidence. Strike now for the principles you have so long maintained, and secure the triumph you have hoped for, and have labored to achieve. From the Fayeiteville CatoVmian. 8 Hon. David S. Rei'V, the Democratic candidate for Governor of North Carolina, is, ashrs poViical opponents readily admit, a "wo: thy rnan;" ' he is a Democrat from principle; and by nature he entertains those feelings which prompt every lover of. freer dom to look upon his fellow-men as enti tjed tolenjoy equal privileges I under the laws- which govern all; to have an equal voice in making those laws; and a due in fluence in deciding as to who shall be pro moted to execute the laws.' No republi can (for we hold thathundreds of the whig party are aotirrepublicans,: wjiich no man can doubt who watches them closely,) need know! more than the fact that Mr. Reid israDeraocraVahd has always, been a Democrat; so firm, ? that no ties of kindred could swerve him: from his devotion to those principles of government, or induce him to abandon for 'filth lucre," or, the smiles of pride and ptjwer, the great end and aim of Democratic principles.: - L But if it is required the public should know more than this, ivp doubt nnt that Mr. lleid'has so lived and conducteri-him-self, in .his transactions, of private life, that he is as -..willing Jo: challenge the scrutiny of the people in this respect, as he is to in vite the discussion of the relative claims to republicanism; of whigs and democrats. If we are4correctly informed, he has not been nursed in the lap. of-wealth, nor reared by thesickly hand cfluxury. He stands forth thearchitect of his own reputation; a wor thy" example of what industry and per severance can accomplish, in a democracy or a government of the people, where, mer it, and not wealth and "blood," is the only qualification necessary to honor and trust. To that honor and that trust, Mr. ReidSreat an4 cardinal principles which we all has fairly won his way. The people of his Congressional district have twice hon orcd him with one ; of the most important; trusts of a representative government the second lime by a largely increased major ity. . '; .. - ? -; (- : ;..,! In the Assemblj7 of his native State, he has shown that he is capable of represent ing a free people, lie was there well weighed in the balance, and not found wanting. Not even the ties of friendship, relationship, nor self-interest, could make I him give one vote against the will of those he was reprefcnling. We refer to that (session of the Legislature when the Hon. Robert Stranceand.the Hon. Thomas Set- tie were candidates for the Senate Of the United Slates, and the vote of Mr. Reid lurned lhc SCalc; although Mr. Settle was; j v ... .,. - e, his best friend ist that had been ire- democrat hterests of1 prefer e 01 op publican , in Ncu ih Cirolina who rightly appreciates1 the representative character, who does not love and honor David S. Reid for that Vole? Not one, we hope. From the Wilmington Journal. Definite JiccrpiantP. It is with cx- trcme pleasure that .'we '.'announce to our readers the fact that Mr. Reid has definite ly accepted the nomination of the Conven tion as the candidate of the Democratic par- ty for Governor.

Now?lhen, brother democrats, that we haVe commenced the campaig-u in real ear nest; Ifet us work in season arid out of season. Let us second by every honorable means, the efforts of our galhnt standard bearer.

Go to work, theni like men, with a heart and a will? From the Union . .. The Coming Baltimore Convention.

The de mocracy are anxious to know definitely which one of their eminent statesmen is to lead them to their exr great triumphed no voice is heard to say that the day fixed for designating him will come too soon. The heart of r our great party beats high with that confidence of strengthand suc cess which inspires to victorious effort;!

Mason is spoken of in several Democratic papers as a candidate ; for the Vice Presidency. Judge Mason" is' quite popular, and his nomination, we : doubt not, would be satisfactory to the: party; but we believe that more eyes are; directed to Gen. Quitman, as the probable nomihee, than any other man. Indeed, should the friends of Messrs. Buchanan Cass, Houston, Woodbury, and Dallas fail' to come to some agreement which might promise harmonious action, we would riot be surprised if Gen. Quitman were lhe: nominee for President.
