JEFFERSONIAN REP UBLICAN.
S3 OF THE Jeflcrsoiiiau Republican, A iew Weekly Paper, to be published at -Stroudsburg, Monroe County, Pa., and Milford, Pike County, Pa. simultaneously. "The whole art of Government consists in the ar of being honest. Jefferson. "THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN in principle, will be all its 'hie purports, the rirm and unwavering advocate of the principles and doctrines of the democratic part-, delineated by the illustrious Jefferson : the right of the peo ple to think, to speak, and to act, independent ly, on all subjects, holding themselves respon sible to no power for the free exercise of thijs right, but their God, their Country, and her Laws, which they themselves have created. A free and untrammeled Press, conducted in a spirit worthy of our institutions, is a public bles sing, a safeguard to the Constitution under which we live, and it should be cherished and support ed by every true republican. Such, then, it is designed to make the paper now estab lished, and as such, the publisher calls up the enlightened citizens of Monroe and Pik to aid him in this laudable enterprise. The time has arrived when the Press should take a bold and faarless stand against the evidently increas ing moral and political degeneracy of the day, and endeavor, by a fair, candid, and honorable : course, to remove those barriers whioh section al prejudices, party spirit, and party animosity have reared io mar the social relations of men without accomplishing any paramount good. THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN will not seek to lead or follow any faction, or to advocate and support the schemes of any par ticular set of men. It will speak independent ly on all State and National questions, award ing to each that support which its merits may demand, never hesitating, however, to condemn 6uch measures, as in the opinion of the editor is justly warranted, holding as a first principle : " The greatest good to the greatest number." Believing that the great principles of democ racy are disregarded by the present Chief Ma gistrate of the Nation, Martin Van Buren, the JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN, will decidedly, but honorably oppose his re-election to the high and responsible station which he now holds. It will firmly oppose the " Independent Trea sury" Scheme, and all other schemes having for their object tbe concentration in the hands of one man, and that man the President of the Nation, all power over the public moners, a power, which, when combined with that vest ed in him by the Constitution as Commander-in-Chief of the American forces, Military and Naval, together with an enormous official pa tronage, would render him more powerful than the Executive of the British Nation, and in short make our Government, de facto an Elec-! tive Monarchy. I It will ever maintain that the welfare of our Country and the preservation of her Republican Institutions should be the first and only senti ments of our hearts in the choice of our public servants ; that honesty, fidelity, and capability, are the only true tests of merit ; that all men are created equal, -and, therefore, should alike enjoy the privileges conferred on them by the Constitution without being subject to proscrip tion, or coerced bv the influence of party. The columns" of the JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN will ever be open to the free discussion of all political questions, believing as we do, that there is no liberty where both sides may not be heard, and where one portion of freemen are denied the privilege of declar ing their sentiments through the medium of the Press, because they differ from the majority. The JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN Trill ever take a lively interest in the affairs of Monroe and Pike, and of the Senatorial and Congressional Districts with which they are connected. The Farmer, the Merchant, the Mechanic, and the Laborer, will each find a friend in the columns of the JEFFERSONIAN REPUB LICAN. Due care will be taken to furnish its readers with the latest Foreign and Domestic News, and such Miscellaneous reading as will be both interesting and instructive. In short it is designed to make the paper worthy of an ex tensive patronage, both from the strictly moral tone which it will ever possess, and the efforts of the editor to make it a good and useful Family Newspaper. The JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN will be printed on a super-royal sheet of good quality, and with good type. Terms $2 in advance ; $2,25 at the end of eix months, and $2,50 if not paid before the ex piration of tbe year. No subscription taken for a Jess term than six months. RICHARD NUGENT. Stagnation of the ISIood. The repeated changes in the atmosphere, by act ing as they do upon the consistence and quality of tne otooa, give occasion for the most fatal and ma lignant disorders. The blood from a state of health becomes stagnant and is plunged into a state of corruption. Thus it loses its purity: its circulation is imne ded; the channels of life are closed: the boiocls be come costive, and if not an immediate attack of some malignant fever, headache, nausea, loss of appetite, and a general debility of the whole frame are sure to follow. It requires the tempest and the tornado to bring about a state of purity in the ocean, when its wa ters become stagnant; and it will require repeat ed evacuation by the stomach and bowels before the blood can be relieved of its accumulated im purity. Brandreth's Vegetable Universal Pills, should be taken, then there will be no danger; be cause they purge from the stomach and bowels these humors which arc the cause of stagnation, cleanse the blood from all impurities, remove every cause of pain or weakness, and preserve the consti tution in a state of heaitU and vigur that causual changes cannot effect. Dr. Brandreth's Office for the exclusive sale of his Vegetable Universal Pills, in Philadelphia, is at No. 8, North Eighth street. Price 25 cents per box. For sale by Richard S. Staples, in Strouds- burg; in Milford by J. II. Bkodhead, and in Mon roe and Pike counties by agents published in an other part of this paper. October 16, 1840. NOTICE.

The great celebrity of this unrivalled Composi tion especially in the Northern Stales leaves the proprietor but little need to say any thing in its favor; for it has been generally conceded to it, that it is beyond all comparison the best remedy for external complaints that has ever been discov ered. Indeed the speed and certainty of its oper ations have the appearance of miracles : as ulcers, wounds, corns, fever sores, chilblains, white swel lings, biles, piles, spider and snake biles &c. immediately yield to its apparently super human influence. Thus if properly applied it will remove an inveterate, corn or break and heal a bile in five days, will allay and perfectly cure an ulcer in two weeks ; and the most desperate cases of white swelling that can be imagined, have been destroyed by it in less than two months. In the bites of poisonous reptiles its efficacy is truly surprising; and even in the bite of a rabid dog, for if applied in time, its powers of attraction are so wonderful that they will at once arrest the poison and thus prevent it irom pervading the system. It is like wise greatly superior to any medicine heretofore discovered for the chafed backs and limbs of horses for tetters, ring worms, chapped lips, and in short for every external bodily evil that may fall to the lot of man or beast. The proprietor has received at least a thousand certificates and other documents, in favor of his " Specific Ointment" upwards a hundred of which were written by respectable members of the Med ical Faculty ; and in selecting from this pile the following samples, he was governed more by their brevity, than their contents, as they all breath the same spirit of eulogy and satisfaction. CERTIFICATES. Albany, July 9, 1837. To. Dr Harrison, Sir- I use your Specific Oint ment in my practice and cordially recommend it as a most efficient remedy for Tumors, Ulcers, White Swellings, Scrofula, Rheumatic Pains, Chapped Face, Lips and Hands; and for general and external complaints. I write this at the re quest of your agent here, who furnishes me with the article, and am pleased to have it in my power to award honor to merit. RUFUS R. BEACH, M D Extract of a Letter from Dr. J. W. Sanders, ) of Louisville. Ky. October 8, 1837. J " I am prepared to say, that for Rheumatic Pains and the Sore Breasts of females, Harrison's Spe cific Ointment has no superior, if indeed it has any equal, in the whole catalogue of external me dicines, as known and prescribed in this country." Extract of a letter from Dr Potts, of Utica, N Y. Dated July 28, 1838. "Harrison's 'Specific Ointment" is, in my opin ion, a most important discovery; and is particular ly efficient in scrofulas, ulcers, sore legs, erup tions, and general outward complaints, speak of its merits from an experience of four years " Cincinnati, Ohio, Oct. I, 1838. To Dr. Harrison, Dear Sir, I write to con gratulate you on the extraordinary virtue of yonr pecihc Umtment, m the curing of burns. A little boy of mine, -1 years old, fell against the fire-place thref weeks since, when his clothes be becaue ignited, and he was instantly enveloped in flames. After some difficulty the fire was ex tinguished, but not before the poor little fellow's lower extremities were almost covered with a con tinual blister. Having much faith in your oint ment, I immediately purchased three boxes, which I applied unsparingly, according to your direc tions in such cases ; and it is with great pleasure and gratitude, that I am able to inform you that it allayed the pain in a few hours ; and in ten days had effected a complete cure. 1 need scarcely add that it ought to be in the possession of eve ry family, as there is no telling when such acci dents may occur. Yours respectfully, II. M. SHEPHARD. A supply of this valuable Ointment just received ar.u lor sale, by SAMUEL STOKES. Stroudsburg, Nov. C, 1840.

Tho Trustees of this Institution, have the pleasure of announcing '.o the public, and par ticularly to the friends of education, that they have engaged Ira B. Newman, as Superinten dent and Principal of their Academy. The Trustees invite the attention of parents and guardians, who have children to send from home, to this Institution. They are fitting up the building in the first style, and its location from its retired nature is peculiarly favorable for a boarding school. It commands a beauti ful view of the Delaware rive near which it is situated, and the surrounding scenery such as the lover of nature will admire it is easily accessible the Easion and Milford Stages pass it daily-, and only 8 miles distant from the latter place, and a more salubrious section of coun try can nowhere be found. No fears need be entertained that pupils will contract pernicious habits, or be seduced into vicious company it is removed from all places of resort and those inducements to neglect their studies that are furnished in large towns and villages. Board can be obtained very low and near the Academy. Mr. DaniePW. Dingman, jr. will take several boarders his house is very conve nient, and students will there be under the im mediate care of the Principal, whose reputa tion, deportment and guardianship over his pu pils, afford the best security for their proper conduct, that the Trustees can give or parents and guardians demand. The course of instruction will bo thorough adapted to the age of the pupil and the time he designs to spend in literary pursuits. Young men may qualify themselves for entering upon the study of the learned professions or for an advanced stand at College for mercantile pur suits, for teaching or the business of common life, useful will be preferred to ornamental stud ies, nevertheless so much of the latter attended to as the advanced stages of the pupil's educa tion will admit. I he male and female depart ment will be under the immediate supcrintend- dence of the Principal, aided by a competent male or female Assistant. Lessons in music will be given to young ladies on the Piano Forte at the boarding house of the principal, by an experienced and accomplished Instructress. Summer Session commences May 4th. EXPENSES.

THE CONSTITUTION. What is that we call the Constitution ? t The constitution is evidently that which constitutes, and that which constitutes is the blood. Wo, there fore, know that the blood is the constitution, and that a good or bad constitution is neither more nor less than a good or bad state of the blood. There is no person who, having lost health, does not wish to have it restored. Use then the proper means. Ex pel with Purgative Medicine all currupt humors from the body, and the blessing, Health, will be the certain result: for all pains or unpleasant feel ings proceed from the presence of corrupt or vi tiated humors, which are the real cause of every disease, and therefore the only disease to which the human frame is subject, because they clog up the veins and arteries, and prevent the free circulation of the blood. Drandrelli's Vegetable Universal Pills cure this disease : because they remove the corrupt or vi tiated humors by tho stomach and bowels, leaving the good humors to give life and health to the bo dy. It is morally impossible that they can fail to cure, provided Nature is not entirely exhausted. Dr. Brandreth's Office for the sale of his pills in Philadelphia, is No. 8, North Eighth street.

TIMOTHY SEED, For sale by the subscriber, WM. EASTBURN. Stroudsburg, Feb. 14, 1840. LADIES' COMPANION. New Volume commenced with the Nov. .Number. A Circulation of 20,000. THE Ladies' Companion, established in May, 183-1 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 May, 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 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, and 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 coining 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 une, 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 which may be enumerated the following: Mrs. Holland, Emma C. Embury, Lvdia 11. cugoumey, f ranees b Osgood, Ellet, Caroline Orne, Seba Smith, Ann S. Stevens, Miss Hannah F. Gould, Mary Ann Browne, Char lotte Cushman, Mary Emily Jackson, Henry W.

Gazette, together with several others, with whom negotiations are pending They will here after be announced. Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, ) William W Snoicden, 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 maintamthe 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 ah other publications. From the foregoing it will be perceived that the Ladies' Companion embraces every department within the range of Uelles-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 Indies' Companion to the support of uiu j;uiwu yuuuiauj. uii'iv 13 uu worn.

Public Opinion from whose decision there is no appeal, has been so often and so loudly manifested in favor of BRANDRETH'S VEGETABLE I N1VERSAL PILLS, that it is not surprising there should be found in almost every city, town, and village in the United States, peisons 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 use of which so many happy results have already accrued to hu manity. It is painful to think that an inestimable good should be product of direct and immediato evil but so it is. The very excellence of Brandreth's cgctable Univcsal Pdls. has in somercspects,,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 connterfeitdruggists 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 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 of earthly punish ment, can entirely put it down, it beromes 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. KT Established Agents for the Genuine Bran dreth's Vegetable Universal Pills, arc Invariablv furnished with an engravad certificate, signed, B. BRAHTDRETH, M. I. in my own hand writing. This certificate is renewed every year and when over twelve months old, it no longer guarantees the genuineness of the medicine. It would be well, therefore for purchasers carefully to examine the certificate, the seal of which is neat ly embossed on the paper, in order at least that tho safeguard of imposition may not at least be suscep tible of imitation.
