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 ofiirers. except himself, he 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 n letter to the Secretary of War giving an official account of this sanguinary Indian Battle in 1792, said : 'My faithful and gallant Lieu tenant HARRISON rendered me most essential service by commu nicating my orders in evrey direc tton, andbv his conduct and bra very exciting the troops to press for victory." James Madison, in a special message to Congress in 1811, con cerning the battle of Tippecanoe laid : " While it is deeply lamented that so many valuable lives have been lost in the action which took place, on the 7th ultimo, Copgress 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 rcquiring'.the utmost .ee.Hious of valor ami discipline." caution;..- Public Opinion from whose decision there is no appeal, has been so often and so loudly manifested in favor of BRANDRETH'S VEGETABLE U- MVERSAL PILLS, that it4is not surprising there 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 of moral rectitude, as to manufacture a spurious arti cle, and palm it off on the unsuspecting public as the genuine medicine, from the result ofwhich 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 BratidretK's Vegetable Unwesal Jftlls. has in some respects., opened a spe sies of high-way through which cupidity and ava rice carry on their depredations without check & notwithstanding the frequency of exposure alrea dy made notwithstanding the indelible disgrace which has been heaped upon counterfeit druggists notwithstanding the large amount of human suffer 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 &s if no de nunciation had ever beeu made, and public indig nation never been expressed. omce, however, this destructive evil still exists, and neither .the fear of God, nor of earthly punish ment, can entirely put it down, it becomes 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 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 base counterfeits, highly injurious to the health of the People. IEr Established Agents for the Genu ins Joran- drettfs Vegetable Universal Pills, are Invauuslv furnished with an engravad certificate, signed, 12. BRARDRETir, IK. D. in my own hand writing.

TH'E PHILADELPHIA SATURBA1 COURIER. The Courier is on as firm and independent a ba sis as any paper issued, at home or abroad, and its ample means will be always employed to make it equal, as a FAMILY PAPER, to any journal published. The unparalleled patronage, from every section of the country, is the best evidence of its approval. It has the largest subscription IN THE WORLD! Its list embraces over 3-1,000 subscribers, extend ing from the Lakes to the Ocean, and combining'all interests and classes of the republic. It is the lar gest and cheapest journal ever issued!! Each number of the Courier Contains as much matter as would fill a 12mo. volume, the cost of which alone would be price of the paper fora whole year. The general character of the Courier is well known. Its columns contain a great variety of Tales, Narratives, Biographies, Es says. &c. Together with articles on Scitnce, Fne Arts, Mechanics, Mechanics, Agriculture, Man ufactures, Foreign news, New Publications, Morality, Medi cine, The Silk Culture, Temperance, Fnraily Circle, Self-Educated Men, List, of Insolvent Hanks, Letters from Europe, The Classics.

I EMBRACING SUBJECTS FOR Farmers, Tradesmen, Merchants, Teachers, Mechanics, Artisans, ullen of Eeisure, Students, And every class of our Country. The COURIER may always be DEPENDED UPON, as nothing important is permitted to es cape a notice in its columns. Our arrangements enable us to draw from the whole range of the current Literature of Europe, and our Correspondents at home embrace many of the best Writers of this country. This approved Family paper is strictly Neutral in Politics and Religion, and the uncompromising opponent of all Quackery. Popular Music. In the Courier is inserted the music of the most popular Airs, Ballads and Songs, as soon as they are imported . so that country readers may have the most popular music for the voice, the piano, the guitar, or other instruments, as soon as published, which if paid for separately would cost more than the price of subscription. This perfected arrange ment is to be found in np other journal of the kind. The price of ihe COURIER is only $2. When individuals wish to subscribe to the Cou rier, a sure way is to enclose the money in a let ter arid direct it to us. Their Postmasters will probably politely remit, for we wish them in all cases, if it meet their pleasure, to act as our agents. Oitr Terms.

THE Ladies' Companion, established in May, 1834 a popular and highly esteemed magazine of ueneral Literature and the Fine Arts : embellish with gorgeous and mostly engravings on steel, and the Quarterly fashions ; and also with Fashiona ble and popular Music, arranged for the Piano Forte, and Guitar. Since ihe publication of the number for May, the demand for theLadies' 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- tisly all 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 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 de mands for the Ladies' Companion, as well as those 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, printed on the finest paper ; smoothly pressed, alid neatly stitched in a handsome cover. The Ladies' Companion contains a larger quan tity of reading than any other magazine issued in 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 change, as it will remain under the charge of the same Editors as heretofore. Articles from the pens of the most distinguished writers, will appear in the forthcom' ing numbers, among wliich may be enumerated the following: Mrs. Holland, Emma C.

Gazette, together with several others, with whom negotiations are pending They will here after be announced. Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, )s William W Snowden, J Editors. The Musical Department of the Ladies' 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 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 of its music, and the unequal splendor of 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 has steadily pursued a course of improvement, and he flatters 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 percoived that the Ladies' Companion embraces every department within the range of Belles-Lettres 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 of the Ladies' Companion to the support of the public generally. There is no work that give1 its readers such a great return for their money. Terms Three Dollars a year in advance, or Four Dollars during the year. No subscription received for less than a year. Letters must be postpaid, otherwise the postage is deducted, and cicdit given only for the balance. Address WM. SNOVVDEN, 109 Fulton street. New York. CAUTION.
