A. GLORIOUS RECORD ! ! ! Let all read the following testimonials oj Harrison s worth. General Harrison lias done more for His country with less conipcii sation for it than any man living. President Madison. ESTIMATE OF HARRISON BY THE WINESSES OF HIS DEEDS. The' following tribute of praise was paid to General Harrison in 1811, by 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 foe. we should march under General Harrison with the most perfect confidence of victory and fame." Joel Gook, Josiah Sneelins:, O. G Burton 31. B.Burton, Nathan Adams, A. Hawkins, TT 1 Hosea; Blood. C. Fuller, G. Gooding, To the Senate and House of Rep resentatives of the United States. I 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 vem'ber 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 gaged, as well as their collected firmness which distinguished their commander on every trying occasion requiring the utmost ex ertion of valor ana 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 : l General Harrisons letter tells ns everything we wish to know a bout the officers, except himself, lie does justice to every one but Harrison and the world must therefore do justice to the man who is too modest to do justice to himself." GEN. WAYNES ENDORSEMENT. General Anthony Wayne in a letter to the Secretary of War giving an official account of this sanguinary Indian Battle in 1792, said : "My faithful and gaZlant Lieu tenant HARRISON rendered me most essential service by commu nicating my orders in evrey direc tion, and by his conduct and bra very exciting the troops to press for victory." James Madison, in a special message to Congress in 181 13 con cerning the battle of Tippecanoe aid : While it is deeply lamented that so many 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 cription of troops engaged, as well the collected firmness which dis tinguished their Commander, on an occasion requiring the utmost xcrtions oi valor aud discipline." BRAKDREXII'S VEGETABLE U2I. Cleanse and Purify tlie 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 effectual 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 remn 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 uuivcrsallylea ving us in a worse condition after its use. We no longer believe in the ahsurd 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 ol 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 body calls for a VEGETABLE CLEANSING. " Brandreth's Vegetable Universal Pills require skill in their administration ; the printed direc tions only have to be 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 : BRANDRETH'S PILLS. This medicine is acknowlegedto be one of the most valuable over discovered, as a Purifi; er of the Blood and Fluids. Its superior to Sarsaparilla, whether as sudorific or alterative. It stands infinitely before all the preparations or combinations of Mercury. Its Purgative powers alone are of incalculable value ;. for those Pills may be taken daily, FOR ANY PERIOD, and instead of weakening by the cathartic effect, they add strength, by taking .away uie cause oi weanness. inere is no good Mercury does, which these Pills do not likewise ; but they have none of the miserable effects of that Deadly Specific. The TEETH aienot injured; the BONES and LIMBS are not paralyzed no; but in the stead of these dis tressing symptoms, new life and vigor is ani mate and evident in every movement of the bo dy. BRANDRETHS PILLS are indeed a Universal Rfmedy for they cure opposite dis eases ; they cure Jir LAMMATUrix and CHRONIC RHEUMATISM! They cure- DIABETES & STRANGUARY ! They cure. Dl oEiNTAK i and CONSTITUTIONAL COSTIVENESS ! They will cure all these apparently opposite diseases, because they Cleanse and Purify the Blood ; provided liowever, Nature is not beyond all Human As sistance, r or years this medicine has been be fore the public in the United States : wherev er it has been introduced, it has superseded all other remedies.

Nctv Volume commenced toilh the' May 'Number. TP . X HE Ladies' Companion, established in May, 1834 a popular and highly esteemed magazine of uenerai .Literature and the Fine Alts; embellish with gorgeous and costly engravings on steel, and the Quarterly fashions ; and also with Fashiona ble and popular Music,A 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 thcpmmencement of the vol ume an additional number of copies were printed, which was considered at the time adeouate to sa tisfy all the orders which might be received, and leave a considerable number on hand fdr 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 termination of the tenth volume. In consequence of this great and unparalleled increase of new subscribers, he has determined to commence the new volume for the ensuing year with thirteen thousand : hoping that he will thus be enabled to supply all the del mands for the Ladies' Companion, as well astlfose disappointed in commencing: with the tenth vol ume. The proprietor feels grateful for 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 Ladies' Companion, that it is determined resolution to meet it with a corresponding liberality to merit its continuance. The work appears in beautiful new type, printe'd on tne nnest paper ; smoothly pressed, and neatly stitched in a handsome cover. The Ladies' Companion contains a larger quan tity oi reacting man any oiner magazine issued m in this country, and its subscription price is only three dollars a year, while the great combination of-talent secured for the coming year will render it unequalled by any other periodical. Splendid Steel Engravings, prepared by Mr. A. Dick, ornament the work. one of which accompa nies each number. These plates are entirely new, and are engraved at a heavy expense by one of the best arstists in America, expressly for the maga zine. The designs are selected with a view of in teresting the general reader, and enhancing the value, of the work, for its superior pictoral embel lishments. It is with pride the proprietor announ ces that the Ladies' Companion is the only maga zine published, in which new and elegant steel plates appear regularly. Those accompanying other monthly periodicals, are generally first worn out in annuals. In addition to the engravings mentioned, a correct plate of the Quarterly Fash ions for Ladies, will appear in the June, Septem ber, December, and March numbers, independent of the usual embellishment. It is the determina tion of the proprietor, that these fashion plates shall appear in a style hitherto unknown. It lite rary character will undergo no .cfiange,as it yill remain under the charge of the same Editors as heretofore. Articles from the pens of. the most distinguished writers, will appear in the forthconv ing numbers, among Much may be enumerated the following: Mrs. ifpiJihid, Emma C.

Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, William W Snowden, Editors. Henry F. Harrington, j The Musical Department of the Ladies' Compa-1 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 of more than usual care to him, and to the Professor under whose su pervision it is placed, to make that portion of the magazine deserving of the countenance of every lover of 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 is the de sign of the 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 ol its music, and the unequal splendor ot its pic toral embellishments, -and the accuracy of its quar terly fashions. The proprietor pledges himself to use all honorable means to maintainthe superiori ty which the Ladies' Companion has obtained. For five years he haststeadily pursued a course of improvement, and he Hatters himself that his pre sent facilities are such as to give the work eminent advantages over all other publications. From the foregoing it will be perceived that the Ladies' Companion embraces every department within the range of Belles-Lettrcs and the Fine Arts : and no exertions or expense will be deemed too great to render the work equal to any other extant. The 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 the undeniable claims ot the Ladies' Companion to the support ot Articles, per ton, per mile.
