"Eternal Vigilant* U the price of Liberty
PROSPECTUS OF TH2 FREE CITIZEN.
A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.
rpHB undersigned proposes to publish at the Mat of
JL government of Pennsylvania, Ml Independent De
mocratic weekly newspaper under the abort title;
and, in announcing this purpose, we deem it proper
to refer briefly to a few of the general principles which
shall govern oar ooum.
The Scripture teach on that "God created man in his
own image," and that all men are consequentlybreth
ren. The Declaration of Independence recognise*
this truth whon it declares that "all men are oreated
auftl, and that thoy are endowed by their Creator
th certain inalienable rights, among which are life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
We believe in the Constitution of the United States,
whish declares its purpose to be "to form a more pur
fact union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquil
lity, promote the general welfare, and secure the bios
sings of liberty," and bold that all its provisions
should be ooiutruid in accordance with this general
purpose.
This was the position and purpose of the sap es oi
the Revolution, and wo, their descendants, should la
bor to secure the blessings of individual liberty aud
national liberty. *
We believe in Democracy?a government by the
People and for the People?in the Democracy of free
thought, free speeoh, free conscience, froe labor, and
freemen?in the Democracy which loathes Opproj
sion, and which does not bend its baok to sustsin the
intorests of a ClasJ, however powerful or imposing its
numbers or position. A Democracy which does this,
which despises the People, underiates their iatelli
gence, disregards their opinions, and abuses their con
fidence, we look upon as a pretence and a sham. If
man is to be considered merely as a stall-fed aniiuil,
to be satisfied when filled with creature comforts, then
wil! free citizens and free laborers be looked upon as
A nuisance and an incumbrance; but not whea they
are regarded as the life-blood of the Republic. We
have been told that suoh a paper as we propose to
print oannot live in the atmosphere of Harrisburg,
that the politicians of Pennsylvania have so debauch
ed her public sentiment as to crush out all regard for
Justioe, Humanity and tho Rights of Man as pro
claimed in the Declaration of Independence; but we
do not believe this. Every friend of freedom and de
mocracy has a personal interest in the reputation of
the Commonwealth, aad we trust evory friend of the
cause will do his part to Bustain The Fbee Citizen.
and refute this slander on tho Koyetone State.
Terms.?TBE FREE CITIZEN will be printed
or a large and handsome sheet, at Two Dollars per
year, payable invariably in advanoe, Throe oopies
will be sent for $5 ; 5 copies for $3 ; and 10 oopies
for $16. No paper will bo sent unless the money ac
companies the order. Address

WHAT THE NEW TORE CITY FOLKS BAY OF
DR. McLm'S CELEBRATED VERMIFUGE.
New York, August 25, 1852.
This is to oertify that I am well acquainted
with a man. fifty years of age, for many years a res
ident of this oity. who has been at times extremely
ill, but oould not tell from what cause, unless it was
worms. lie told his attendieg physician hit suspi
oiona, but the physician at once ridiculed the idea,
and refused to attend him any longer. His son then
mentioned Dr. MoLane's Vermifuge, and asked him
if he would take it; his reply was, I must take some
thing to get relief, or die.
They at onoe procurod a bottle of Dr. McLano's
celebrated Vermifuge, and took one half at one dose.
The result was, he passecl upwards of thrut quart* o)
worms, out up in every form, lie got well immedi
ately, and is now enjoyiag most excellent health;
and, like the good Samaritan of eld, is endeavoring
to relieve his unfortunate neighbors. He makes it
his business to hunt up and select all cases similar to
his own, that may be given over by the regular phy
sician*, aud induoes them to try Dr McLane's Ver
mifuge. So far ho has induoed more than twenty
persons to take the Vermifuge, and in every case with
the most happy results. He is well satisfied that Dr.
MoLane's Vermifuge li far superior to any other
known remedy, and that, if more generally known,
would not fail to tave many valuable lives.
For farther particulars, inquire of Mrs. Hardie,
124} .Cannon street, New York oity.
P. S. The above valuable remedy, also Dr. Mc
Lane's celebrated Liver Pills, ran now be had at all
respectable Drug Stores In this city.
fly Purchasers will please be careful to ask for,
and take none bat, Dr. MoLANE'S VERMIFUGE.
All others, in comparison, are worthless. 1
AVER'S CHKRR* PECTORAl*
FOR THE RAPID C V UK OF
COUGHS, COLDS, H0ARSENES8, BRONCHITIS
WHOOPINO COUGH, CROUP, ASTHMA, AND
CONSUMPTION.
TO CURB A COLD, WITH HEADACHE AND
SORENESS OF THE BODY, take the Cherry
Pectoral oo going to Led, and wrap ujf warm, to
sweat during the night.
FOR A COLD AND COUGH, take it morning,
noon, and evening, a? cording to directions on the
bottle, and the difficulty will soon be removed. None
will long suffer from this trouble, when they find it
can be no readily cured. Persona (filiated with a
Heated cough, Which break* them of tbeir ro*t at
night, will find, by taking the Cherry Pectoral on
going to bed. they may b? sure of aound, unbroken
sleep, and consequent refreshing rest. Great relief
froui sufferior, and an ultimate onre, ia afforded to
thousands who are tbua afflicted, by thia invaluable
remedy.
From Its agreeable effect in thcae casea, many find
tbernaelvee unwilling to torego ita nae when the ne
cessity for it haa censed.
TO SINOERS AND PUBLIC SPEAKERS thia
romedy ia invaluable, aa by its action on the throat
and lungs, when taken in email quantitiea. it reraowi
all hoariioneM in a few houra, and wonderfully in
creases the power and flexibility of the voice
ASTHMA ia generally much relieved, and often
wbolly cored, by Cherry PeotoraJ. But there are
some esses ao cbstinato ?? to yield entirely to no
medioine. Cherry Pectoral will cure them, if they
can be cured
BRONCHITIS, or irritation of the throat and up
per portion of the lungs, may be cured by taking
Cherry Pectoral in small and frequent doaea. The
ancomfo'table oppression ia aeon relieved.
FOR CROUP. Give an ometic of antimony, to be
followed by large and frequont doeea of the Cherry
Poctoral, until it subdues the disease. If taken in
season, it will not fail to cure
WHOOPING COUO fl may be broken up, and soon
cured, by the one of Cherry Pectoral.
THE INFLUENZA ia speedily removed by this
remedy. Numerous instances have been noticed
where whole famides were proteoted from auy serious
consequences, while their neighbors, wit hout the Cher
ry Peotoral, were suffering fiom the diaeaae.
Repeated inatances are reported here of patients
who have bnen cured from
LIVER COMPLAINTS, by this remedy?eomany
that tlicre can be no question ita healing power on
these diseases. It should be persoveringly taken,
until the pain in the aide and other unpleasant symp
tom* cease.
FOR CONSUMPTION in ita earliest stages it
should be taken under the advice of a good Physician,
if possible, and in every oass with a careful regard to
the printed ilirrrtious on the bottle. If judiciously
used, and the patient is carefully nuraed meantime,
it will seldom tail to aubdue the disease.
FOR SETTLED CONSUMPTION, ia its wont
form, the Cherry Pectoral should be given in dotes
adapted to what the patient requires and ran bear.
It always affords soma relief; and not unfroquontly
cure* those who are considered p?st all cure. There
are many thousands, scattered all over the country,
who feel and say that they owe their lives and pre*
ent health to the Caerry Pe.toral.
Thia remedy ia offered to the community with tho
confidence we feel ia an art e'e which seldom fails to
realise the happiest effects that can be desired. So
wido ia the fiell of ita uaefulaoea. Mid ao numerous
the caaca of ita euros, that almost every section of
the country abounds in peiaons, publicly known, who
have been restored from alarming and evea desperate
diseases of the lungs, by ita uae. When one* tried,
ita superiority over every other medicine of Its kind
ia too apparent to eeoape observation; and where its
virtues aro known, the public no longer hesitate what
antidote to employ for the distressing and dangerous
affections of the pulmonary organs, which are inci
dent 1% our climate. And not only In formidable at
tacks upon the lung!, but for the milder varieties of
oolds, coughs, hoarsentsa, eto., and for ohildron it is
the pleasanteat and safest medicine that can bo ob
tained. No family should be without it, and those
who have used it never will.

To those persons who may visit Washington, and
are in want of a boot that cannot be excelled, either
in quality or workmanship, we would enll their atten
tion to the oard of Henry Janney, to bo found under
the head of " Washington." A handsomo and noat
ly-made boot is not at all times a source of pleasure
to the woarer, but often one of extreme torture; this
is caused by the bungling manner In whioh the boot
Is fitted to the foot Mr. Janney has devotedI much
of his time In studying the construction of the human
foot, In order to ascertain how a boot should be cut
and fitted, that will be perfectly easy to all parts or
the foot- In this ho has succeeded, so that it niatters
not what may be the shape of, 6r the number of corns
on the foot, his boot Is perfectly easy. Thus he has
i combined beauty with comfort.

MY I)R. EDWARD BKSCHICK.
Tkii Remarkable Work has reached its Fifth
, Edition, i/i the brief spate of Four Monthsf
A success unprecedented in J'heological Pub
1 luattous!
AN impression ban already been produced by tliis
masterly trealise, the moat profound, wide
{ reaching, and periuaueot.
It is porfeetly manifest to all competent observers,
I that we are upon the eve of a theological discussion,
the moat comprehensive, radical, and portentous, the
world has ever seen. To tbia discussion this book
leads the way, with a momentum irresistible. There
is not a question iu Thuology which ia not destined
to come up for a new and thorough settlement in the
light of this dual development
All those who have Theologioal doubts and difll
oultics should examine the (solution this work afforda.
Thoao who have no doubts, but who wiah to study
the history of opiniona in the past, and to keep pace
with the developments of opinion iu the future, will
grievously orr if they neglect to make themselves fa
miliar with this book. It containa the seeds of the
thinkinga and debating! of the next hundred years.
The reception of this work by the The logical
press of the country, haa been signilloaut. Equally
uooliniig to accept his conclusion, thoy do it on op
posite and contradictory grounds. One balf of the
Theologioal press endorses the major premise of the
argument, and denios the minor. The other half en
dorses the minor, and denies the major. And as they
are probably both right in their positive element, and
wrong in their negative, the work has received a Vir
tual Endorsement of the most powerful kind.
Ab regards the ability of tho work, and its claims
on the attention of all, the following extraots may
suffice:
From the Princeton Repertory?Old School Orthodox.
It is characterised by groat ability, by an earnest
spirit, by frankness, candor, and oourtesy. It has a
?>eoial interest for us. Wu haii, it as an ally.
he author shuts his readers up to the ohoice between
Orthodoxy and the dootrlno of Pre-Existonoe.
From the Umversalist Quarterly and General Re
view, Jan., 1854.
We have the novel spectacle of a man clinging
with a masterly grasp to all the fundamentals of Or
thodoxy, * * * jet dealing it a blow beneath
which it reels.
It would be dlffioalt to find within the limits of a
hundred pagee any treatise or essay that can com
pare in importance with this analysis (1). iv) of Or
thodox doctriaes. Dr. Beecher has struck upon the
right principle in his theory of typical interpretation,
in the fifth of Romans.

This work has caused a groat commotion among
the D D.'i in our land. It merits their attention.

We predict for it an immense sale, and venture to

of hor owu?frenh, bold, vigorous and beautiful?not
refined into stupidity, not degenerated into obsceni

as hor rich soil, attractive as her blooming prairisa.
It has been the ohjoot of the Gonius ti gather in the
ohoioest productions of this litorature, and to send
thorn forth again, to encourage, to please, and to in
struct. It is not surprising that the public have re
irardrd this object with extraordinary favor-? favor
which is evidenced by tho remarkable success of the
Genius of tho West. It has elicited the attention
and admiration of cultivated minds in all parti of the

and pros* writers of the West, Mr. Kinne y is con
spicuous In the foromost rank; and the enlistment or
his pon in tho oditonal department cannot fail to ex
cite a deeper and still wider interest in the minds of
the reading public.
The typographical execution of the work has also
been improved, and so arranged as to afford a much
greater amount of reading matter, without any ad
