Let all read the following testimonials
of Harrisons worth.
General Harrison has done
more for his country with less
compensation for it than any man
living. President Madison.
The following trihute of praise
was paid to General Harrison in
1811, hy 11 of the officers who
fought under his banner at the
battle of Tippecanoe:
"Should our country again re
quire our services to oppose a civ
ilized or savage toe, we should
march under General Harrison
v.ith the most perfect confidence
of victory and fame.
Joel Cook, Josiah Sneeling,
R. B.Eurton, O. G Burton,

A. Hawkins, G. Gooding,

resentatives of the United States.
1 lay before Congress, two let
ters received from Goverror Har
rison of the Indiana Territory, re
porting the particluars and the is
sue of the expedition under his
command, notice of which was ta
ken in my communication of No
vember 5.
"While it is deeply lamented
that so many lives have been lost
in the action which took place on
the 7th ultimo, Congress will see
with satisfaction the dauntless
spirit and fortitude displayed by
every description of the troops en
framed, as well as their collected
firmness which distinguished
their commander on every trying
occasion requiring the utmost ex
ertion of valor and discipline.
James Monroe.
Washington, Dec. 18, 1811.
The Richmond Enquirer, now
now next to the Globe, high in
the confidence of the administra
tion, said :
; General Harrisons letter tells
us everything we wish to know a
bout the officers, except himself,
he does justice to every one but
Harrison and the' world must
therefore do justice to the man I
who is too modest to do justice to
General Anthony Wayne in
a letter to the Secretary of War
giving an official account of this
sanguinary Indian Battle in 1792,
said :
"31 j faithful and gaZlant Lieu
tenant HARRISON rendered me
most essential service by commu
nicating my orders in every direc
tion, and by hjs conduct and bra
very exciting the troops to press
for Victory. "
fames Madison, in ta special
message to Congress m 1811, con
cerning the battle of Tippecanoe
saiti :
" While it is deeply lamented
that sonianv valuable lives have
Leen lost; in the action which tcok
place on the 7th ultimo, Congress
will see with satisfaction the
dauntless spirit of fortitude victo
riously displayed by every des
Cleanse ami I3urify ilae Body.
The application of the principal of PURGA
TION being allowed to be one of the greatest
utility in the cure and prevention of disease, it
is of the utmost consequence to as certatn what
medicine is capable of producing the effect de
sired, in the easiest, and at the same time, in
the most eflectual manner, It has no longer
to contend with the blind prejudices of the
public ; it is only with those lew who are still
determined to be "killed according to rule,"
like the people of old, " who would have" a
" King to rei?n over them." But, thanks to
the circulation of newspapers thanks to the
general diffusion of knowledge, which enables
nineteen twentieths of the PEOPLE to read
and judge for themselves now we no longer
believe in swallowing that d eadly mineral,
Mercury professing to cure, but universally lea-
ving us m a worse condition alter its use.
We no longer believe in the absurd notion
that Inflamations of -any kind can be cured by
abstracting our life OUR BLOOD, it is now
understood that an Inflamation is a wise ordi
nance of Nature a signal that she requires the
assistance of purgative medicine to ease her
of the oppressive burden, which she proves by
the high fever and the strong pulse, is wanted
to be removed. In other words, the bodv calls
Brandreth's Vegetable Universal Pills require
skill in their administration ; the printed direc-
uons only nave to De observed and they des
cribe the just proportion of the dose to the
magnitude of the disease to be cured.
Let all persons read the following opinion of
a gentleman who well knows the quality of
these Pills :
This medicine is acknowledged to be one of
the most valuable over discovered, as a Purifi
er of the Blood and Fluids. It is superior to
Sarsaparilla, whether as sudorific or alterative.
It stands infinitely before all the preparations
or combinations ot Mercury. Its Purgative
powers alone are of incalculable value : for
those Pilis inav be taken dailv. FOR ANY
ER10D, and instead of weakening by the
cathartic effect, they add strength, by taking
away the cause of weakness. 1 here is no
good Mercury does, which these Pilis do not
likewise; but ihey have none of the miserable
effectsof that Dkault Specific. The TEETH
aio not injured; the BONES and LIMBS art
not paralyzed no; but in the stead of these dis-
- r .- . . i
ucaaui" ayuipuHiis, new me ana viror is ani
mate and evident in every movement of the bo
dy. BRANDRETTIS PILLS are indeed a
Universal Rfmedy for they cure opposite dis
eases ; they cure INFLAMMATORY and
DIA B ETES & STR ANG U A R Y ! They cure
COSTIVENESS ! They will cure all these
apparently opposite diseases, because they
Cleanse and Purify the Blood ; provided
however, Nature is not beyond all Human As
sistance. For years this medicine has been be
fore the public in die United Slates ; wherev.
er it has been introduced, it has superseded all
other remedies.

New Volume commenced with the May Number.
The Ladies' Companion, established in May,
1834 a popular and highly esteemed magazine of
General literature and the Fine Arts; embellish
with gorgeous and costly engravings on steel, and
the Quarterly fashions ; and also with Fashiona
ble and popular Music, arranged for the Piano
Forte, and Guitar.
Since the publication of the number for Novem
ber, the demand for the Ladies' Companion has
been unprecedented and beyond the most sanguine
anticipations. At the commencement of the vol
ume an additional number of copies were printed,
which was considered at the time adequate to sa
tisfy ail the orders which might be received, and
leave a considerable number on hand for subse
quent calls. The publisher is more than gratified
in stating that the whole of an edition of six thou
sand, five hundred copies, was completely exhaus
ted before the issuing of the third number of the
volume; and, consequently, he was compelled to
reprint a second edition of two thousand copies,
making the circulation of the Ladies' Companion
eight thousand five hundred, at the tettniriation of
the tenth volume. In consequence of tins great
and unparalleled increase of new subscribers, he
has determined to commence the new volume for
he ensuing year with thirteen thousand : hophin
that he will thus be onabled to su;;plv all the de
mands for the Ladies' Companion, as well as those
disappointed in commencing with the tenth vol
ume. 1 he proprietor teels gratetul tor that en
couragement which has been so lavishly bestowed
upon his magazine, and at the same time he begs
to assure the readers of the .Laoies' Companion,
that it is determined resolution to meet it with a
corresponding laterality to merit its continuance.
The work appears in beautiful new type, printed
on the finest paper ; smoothly pressed, and neatly
stitched in a handsome cover.
The Ladies' Companion contains a larger quan
tity of reading than any other magazino issued in
in this country, and its subscription price is only
three dollars a year, while the great combination
of talent secured tor the coming year will reuder
it unequalled by any other periodical. .
Splendid Steel Engravings, prepared by Mr. A.
Dick, ornament the work i.rc of which accompa
nies each number. These plates are entirely new,

The Musical Department of the Ladies1 Compa
nion has ever commanded a large share of atten
tion, and has been looked upon with no little in
terest by its readers, and more especially the La
dies, whom the publisher is anxious to please. It
will continue to be a subject ot more than usual
care to him, and to the Professor under whose su
pervision it is placed, to make that portion of tho
magazino deserving of the countenance of every
lover ot music.
Tae Work in General. Of every department an
equally careful supervision will be strictly exer
cised by the Editors, and all appropriate expendi
tures will be liberally bestowed, as it i3 the de
sign of tho publisher, with the aid of his contribu
tors and the advice of his friends to make the La
dies Companion distinguished for the beauty and
accuracy of its typography, the variety and high
tone of its literary articles, the quality and value
of it3 music, and the unequal splendor of its pic
toral embellishments, and the accuracy of its quar
terly fashions. Tho proprietor pledges himself to
use all honorable means to maintain tho superiori
ty which the Ladies' Companion has obtained.
lor five years he has steadily pursued a course of
improvement, and he flatters himself that hi3 pre
sent facilities arc such as to give the work eminent
advantages oyer all other publications.
t rpm the foregoing it will bo perceived that the
Ladies' Companion embraces every department
within the range of Belles-Lettres and. the Fine
Arts: and no oxertionsor expense will be deemed
too great to render the work equal to any other
extant. Iho flattering .and general testimonials
of nearly every. contemporary journal in the United
States, and in fact, many on the other side of the
Atlantic, have strongly asserted tho undeniable
claims of the Ladies' Companion to tho supnort o(
the public generally. Tlu-ro is no work that give
its readers such a great return tor their money.
