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.
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.
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,
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.
Trill ever take a lively interest in the affairs of

Congressional Districts with which they are

readers with the latest Foreign and Domestic
News, and such Miscellaneous reading as will
be both interesting and instructive. In short it

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
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.

Harrison's Specific Ointment.
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.
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.
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,

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.

the Principal, per week, $1 50

N. B. A particular course of study will be
marked out for those who wish to qualify them
selves for Common School Teachers with ref
erence to that object ; application made for
teachers to the trustees or principal will meet
immediate attention,
Lectures on the various subjects of study will
be delivered by able speakers, through the

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.

Stroudsburg, Feb. 14, 1840.
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,

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

Public Opinion from whose decision there is no
appeal, has been so often and so loudly manifested
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.
