We have New Orl nans dates to the 1 1th.- ;
The Whig majority in that city is 1 1'49. 'Gain,
upwards of 950 "votes. This too, in a- city
which casts hut about 2500 votes. , The lowest
Whig candidate on the Legislative Ticket , re
ceived a maprity of 1064, on the highest Tan

With regard to the two other Congressiona
Disiripts. Ihe intelligence is yet inicertain
The Bee has a statement u'hich elects Daw
son tbe Van Buren candidate by 13 majority

The result is yet uncertain in the Third Con
i ninnnl nistnrt The candidates were
Winn (Y. B.) and Moore (Whig.)
The Globe claims the election of the former
'n- a small majority ; but the returns in the i
Orleans papers are favorable to the Whigs
Taking the Van Buren accounts, however, as
. orrect with regard to the three Congressional
districts, the Harrison majority is very con
siderable. The Bee says that White's major
ity is ample to allow the election of Van 15 u
renites in the other two Districts, and yet give
the State to Harrison by more than a thous
and. The Senate will, in all probability, consist
of 9 Whigs and 8 Loco Focos. The Whigs,
n is also thought, will elect a majority of the
nembers of the House.
The Bee says :hat under all the circumstan
ces, we consider the Legislature safe. Should
:'iis news be fully confirmed, we may with con
:idcncc put down Louisiana for the Hero of
ihe Thames.
New Orleans was brilliantly illuminated on
the night of the 10th, and a salute of 100 guns
lired in honor of the Harrison victory.

A Siaadcr Ref anted.
Mr. John W. Baer, the " Buckeye Black
smith," has been made the object of lierce and
unremitting persecution. The most infamous
and improbable slanders .concerning him have
been propagated through the press and orally.
We invite the attention of the public, and the
particular attention of those who have been en
gaged in the dissemination of these slanders, to
the annexed statement. This siatement was
produred by a gentleman of this place, who has
given us permission to publish it. Mr. Baer
as h himself told the people, is aplain obscure
man, who is known only in his own neighbor
hood; it was consequently more easy to fabricate
slanders concerning him, and more difficult for
him to rebut them. If he had travelled in a
coach attended by servants, and been known as
one of the magnates of the land, these Federal
gentry would have been less hasty in forming
unfavorable opinious of him.
The subjoined certificate is signed by the
most respectable citizens of South Bloofield,
ihe village in which he has his home. Mr.
Baer left with us when he was here last, a let
ter of recommendation, bearing the name of
some of the roost distinguished citizens of
Ohio, which letter may be seen at this office.
Some of the names attached to the subjoin
ed certificate are hardly legible, and may be
printed incorrectly.
South Bloomfield, June 26th, 1840.
We the undersigued citizens of South Bloom
field, Pickaway county, Ohio, learn with regret
that our fellow citizen John W, Baer, has been
slandered in the vilest manner by the press and
otherwise, at the Eastv; and having been reques
ted to state what we know concerning him,
do certify to all whom it may concern that he
has lived amongst us, and that we have been
acquainted with him for more tlian three years
an j that he is just what he professes to be,
JOHN W. BAER, a poor but honest and in
dustrious blacksmith ; that he has a respecta
ble family, which he has supported by laboring
at his trade and that alone ; that he has never
been known by any othr name but John W.
Baer : that he is not a defaulter, and that he is
n )t guilty of larceny or any other crime or act
that will prevent his returning to this neighor
ho'il whenever he pleases as pretended by
those who slander and abuse him, and that we
are credibly informed that Mr. Baef sustained
iho same character in other counties where he
resided before he settled with us. Nothing but
a desire to have justice done to every honest
man und worthy. American citizen, has promp
ted us to make "the above declaration.

Respected Sir ; In conformity to your re
quest, I have obtained the necessary informa

Baer, and in presenting the above communica
tion, I would onlv add, that you can put the ut
most confidence in the statements there made
for the character and veracity of the gentlemen
who have affixed their signatures to the above
statement is the strongest guarantee I could
give you for its correctness, having a personal
acquaintance with every individual, as also with
John W. Baer, the Blacksmith of whom I kno'w
nothing but that he is an honest sober and in

the United States Senate, to the Post

The Editor of the New Orleans
Sun says very many witty things in
favor of the ladies, and sometimes
gives some wholesome truths ; wit
ness the following-:
A woman mav sa7" what she likes
to vou, witnout running" tne risK or
getting knocked down for it.
She can take a snooze after din
ner, while her husband has to go to
She can dress herself in neat and
tidr calicos for- a dollar which her
husband has to earn and fork over.
She can go forth into the streets
without being invited to treat at every
coffee house.
She ean paint her face if too pale,
or flour it if too red.
She can stay at home in tirre of
war. and wed if her husband is kilt.
She can wear corsets if too thick,
and other fixins if too thin.
She can eat drink and be merry
without its costing her a cent.
She can get divorced from her hus
band whenever she sees any one she
like better.
And she can run him in debt all
over until he warns the public by ad
vertisements, not to trust her on his
Prextice-iana. If any of our political
friends have Holland's life of . Van Buren, let
them keep an eye upon it: Certain Loeofoco
emissaries are burning every copy they can
borrow, beg, buy, or steal.
To what do the signs of the times point now?
They point to Gen. Harrison's election as
true as the needle to the pole or a leg-treasurer's
nose to Texas. Prentice.

JSIVERSAL PILLS, that it is not surpnsmgthere
should be found in almost, every city, town, and
village in the United States, persons so depraved
at heart, and so utterly devoid Of the principal o f
moral rectitude, as to manufacture a spurious arti
cle, and palm it off.on the unsuspecting public as
the erenuine medicine, from tho result of which so
many happy results have been accrued to humani
ty. It is painful to think that an inestimable good
should be product of direct and immediate evil
but so it is. .
The very excellence of BrandrctVs Vegetable
Univesal Pills, has in some respects,, opened a spe

notwithstanding the frequency of exposure alrea
dy made notwithstanding the indelible disgrace
which has been neaped upon connterfeitdruggists--notwithstanding
the large amount of human su tier
ing which has been the consequence of this impo
sition and fraud, druggists continue to carry on
this revolting traffic ; and counterfeits are as nu
merous and as varied in the market as if no de
nunciation had ever been made, and public indig
nation never been expressed.
Since, however, this destructive evil still exists,
and neither the fear of God, nor ofarthly punish
ment, can entirely put it down, it becomes my im
perative duty again and again to caujion the public
against purchasing pills of a druggist, professing
to be Brandrelh's Pills for as under no circum
stances is any of this class made an Agent, it fol
lows of course that the Pills sold at such places
professing to be Brandreths Pills are universally
