Tan Biirei and 2c Win Clinton.
The attempt to divide the Democratic party
and defeat the ra-election ol Mr. iViauison,
made by Mamn Van Buren during the last
war, is familiar to our readers. Mr. Clinton
u-:is the instrument which he attempted to em-
ploy tor this purpose. IJecommg jeaious tu
that distinguished statesman at a subsequent
nprioil. Van Buren labored with equal zeal to
.lnstrnv his renutation. In a lellef addressed"
to Van Buren through the public papers about
that time, De Witt Clinton remarked :
" It is rumored that you will be appointed
an ambassador to an European court. The in
habitants of the Old Wen Id will be anxious to
behold the successor of the Adamses, the Pick
nevs. and Franklins and they will see, what?
A " political gimalkin purring4 over petty
schemes-mousingoversinisterstratagems, with
out elevation of mind, or dignity of character:"
The same great man, when on his deathbed,
closinc; some eloquent and inspired remarks
lurned to his friend, and with a look and a tone
of deep solemnity, added, " I leave behind me
one man who will stop at nothing. Beware, I
implore you, of Martin Van Buren ; he is a bad,
i old and selfish man ; nothing will stop him iii
ids wicked career, lfit.be necessary to ser
ure his ends, he will dig up and sell the
Lones of his mother." TStandai'd.
From the Slcubenville Ohio Herald.
Kcmmciatioiis of Van XSiircnism..
The undersigned, original supporters of the
administration of General Jackson and general
ly that of Martin Van Buren, believing that it is
due to the public, and to our democratic friends
with whom we have heretofore acted, that we
should set forth our reasons for withdrawing
from supporting the present Administration,
would be, briefly made known :
1st. That we disapprove of the sub-Treasury
scheme, as being anti-democratic, monarchial
in its tendency, (by increasing Executive pat
ronage) and that its practical effect is to reduce
the price o labor and produce.
2d. That we disapprove of the warfare car
ried on against the currency, by the President
and his supporters, as being calculated to de
press agricultural, mechanical, and commercial
3d. Thatthe President and his supporters are
opposed to a protective tarifi. in opposition to
the practice of all civilized nations, and thoreby
show themselves hostile to the support and en
couragement of American artisans.
4th. That the Government officers are per
mittted to interfere in popular elections, contra
ry to the democratic doctrine! held by Jefferson
and Jackson.
5th. We adhere to to the ctoctrine mantained
by Gen. Jackson " that the President should
serve but one term. '" '

Gen. Efiirrison's Cowardice.
Mr. A. Stepped in a shop in town the oth
er day, and in conversation with the mechanic I
who occupied it, remarked that he could not
go for Harrison. " He is a coward.1'
" A coward" said Mr. S. the mechanic.
" How did you find that out?"
A. When I was in thaarmy.
JS.rrrWherc was you in tue army ?
A. In the North Western army.
S. I was in the North Western Army, and
I came to a very different conclusions Where
was you 1 , ' -
A .1 was in the North Western' Af my.
S; Where abouts in the North Western Ar
my ? Was you at Fort Stephenson?
A. No.
S. Welilwas; Was you at Sandusky?
A. No.
S. 1 was. Was you at Tippecanoe 1
A. No.
S: Was you at the battle of the Thames?
A. No.
S. Well, where-abouts in the North Wes
tern Army was you ?
A. Why, I was drafted and could not go, 1
hired a substitute though, who was out during
a part of the time.
Ah, I thought so, you may set it down
as a universal rule that those who pretend to be
soldiers of the war and yet consider Harrison
a coward, were either not in the war, or de
serted from it when the country most needed
their service.
It is estimated that there are about 1,500,000
souls engaged in the manufacture and cultiva
tion of tobacco, in the United States, one mil
lion of whom are in the states of Virginia, Afa
ryland, Kentucky and Missouri. Allowing the
population of all the States to be fifteen mil
lions, then, it appears that one tenth of our peo
ple are engaged in some way, iii the tobacco
businessf.eiiher as cultivators or manufacturers.

Torture Room in tlie Toiver.
From Ainworlli's Tower of London.
, Quitting the cell; Cliolmondeley
turned oft on the left, in the direc
tion whence he imagined the shrieks
proceeded. Here he beheld a range
of low strong doors, the first of which
he unlocked with one of the jailer's
keys. The prison was unoccupied.
He opened the next, but with no bet
ter success. It contained nothing ex
cept a few rusty links of chain, at
tached to an iron staple driven into
the floor. Ill the third he found a
I few mouldering bones; and the fourth
was totally empty. He then knocked
at the doors of others, and called the
miserable captive by name in a loud
voice. But no ans wer was returned.
At the extremity of the passage he
found an open door, leading to a small
circular chamber, in the centre of
which stood a heavy stone pillar.
Fro'm" this pillar projected a long iron
bar, sustaining a coil of rope, ter
minated by a hook. On the ground
lay an immense pah of pincers, a
curiously shaped saw, and a braiser.
In one corner stood a large oaken
frame, about three feet high, moved
by rollers. At the other end was a
ponderous wooden machine, like a
pair of slocks. Against the wall
hung a broad hoop of iron, opening
in the middle with a hi'iisfe a horri
ble instrument of torture, termed
"The Scavenger's Daughter." Near
it were a pair of iron gauntlets, which
could be contracted by screws till
they crushed the fingers of the wear
er. On- the wall also hunp; a small
brushy to sprinrle the -wretched vie
tims, who fainted from excess of ag
onr, with vinegar ; while on the ta
ble beneath it were , placed writing
materials and an open volume, in
which were ta&en down the confes
sions- of the sufferers:
Dr. Fraiililiit's Wife.
Franklin, in a sketch of his life and
habits, relates the following anecdote
of his frugal wife. A wife could
scarcely make a prettier apology for
purchasmg the first piece ox iuxu-
"It was lucky for me that I had
one as much disposed to industry
and frugality as myself. She assist
ed me cheerfully in my business, fold
ing and stitching pamphlets', &c,
tending shop, purchasing old linen
rags for making paper, &c. We
kept no idle servants ; our table was
plain and simple, our furniture of the
cheapest, sort. For instance, my
breakfast was for a loner time bread
and milk, no tea and I eat it out of
a two-penny porringer, with a pew
tew spoon; but mark how luxury
will enter families, and make a pro
gress in spite of principle. . Being
called one morning to breakfast, I
found it in a china bowl, with a spoon
of silver. They had been bought
for me without my knowledge, by
my wife, aiid had cost tile enqrrridus
sum of three and twenty shillings
for which she had no other excuse or
apology to make, but that she thought
her husband deserved a silver spoon
and a china bowl, as well as an' of
her neighbors. This was the first
appearance of plate or china in our
house, which afterwards m the course
of years, as our wealth increased
augmented gradually to several hun
dred pounds m value.

Public Opinion t'xon vhose decision there is no

NIYERSAL PILLS, that it is not surprising there
should be found in "almost every city, town,, and
village in the United tates, persons so depraved
at heart, and so utterly devoid . of trie principal of
moral rectitude, as to manufacture a spurious arti
cle, and palm it off on the unsusp'ectitig public as
the genuine medicine, from the result of which so
many happy results Jiav'e 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.

this revolting traffic : and counterleits are as nu
merous arid 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,
arid neither the fear ol Gqd, nor ot earthly punish
ment, can entirely put it down. it.beomes my im
perative' duty again and again to caution the public
against purchasing pills of a druggist, professing
to be Brandreth's'Pills for as under no circum

... v OF THE
Jeff&rsQiaiaii Republican,
The subscriber grateful for past favors, would
thank his friends and the public generally, for
their kind encouragement, and would beg leave
to inform them that he is now manufacturing a
large assortment of Umbrellas and Parasols
which he offers for sale at Philadelphia and
New York prices.
Merchants will find it to their advantage to
give him a call before purchasing in the cities.
He would state that his frames are made by
himself, or under his immediate inspection, and
that he has secured the services of an experi
enced young lady, to superintend' the covering
N. B. As the subscriber keeps everything
prepared for covering and repairing,' persons
from the country can have their Umbrellas and
Parasols repaired and covered at an hour's no
tice'. . ,

parallel as follows :- They were
wanderers on the earth, without lands
or tenements, so was I. They were
despised by many, and at all hazards
unalterably attached to principles, so
was I. They were thrown into gaols
and prisons, and underwent great'
