Irritability, Inflamma tions, Headache, Pains in the Breast, Side, Back, atd Limbs, Female Complaints, &c. &c. Indeed, very few are the diseases in which a Purgative Medi ane is not more or less required, and much sick ama and suferig_ might be prevented, if a harm lees but elfectual Cathartic were more freely used. No p.son can feel well while a costive habit of body prevails; besides, it soon generates serious and often fatal diseases, which might have been asoided by the timaly and judicious use of a good purgative. This is alike truef Colds, Feverish symptoms, and Bilious derangements. They all tend to become or prode the a seated and formidable distempers whic load the hearses all over the land. Hence a reliable family physic is of the first'importance to the .pYic health, and this Pill has been perfected with consummate skill to meet that demand. An atensive trial of its virtues by Physicians, Profes sras, and Patients, has shown results surpassing any thing hitherto known of any medicine. Cures have been effected beyond belief, were they not sub stsntlated by persons of such exalted position and hara~ter as to forbid the suspicion of untruth. Among the many eminent gentlemen who have testifed m favor of these Pills, we may mention: Prot J. II. LocaE, Analytical Chemist, of Cin ianati, whose high professional character is en 4orsel by JoN MicLux, Judge of the Supreme Court of the United States. Taos. Coawsc, Secretary of the Treasury. Hon. J. M. WRIGHT, Governor of Indiana. N. LeoxwoTva, great wine grower of the West. Also, Da J. . . CHILTON, Practical Chemist, of New York City, endorsed by Hox. W. L. MARCY, Secretary of State. Wu. B. Astor, the richest man in America. 8. LsLAND & Co., Propr's of the Metropolitan Hotel, and many others. Did space permit, we could give many hundred certificates, from all parts where the Pills have been used, but evidence even more convincing than the experience of eminent public men is found in their effects upon trial. These Pills, the result of long investigation and study, are offered to the public as the best and most complete which the present state of medical seence can afford. They are compounded not of the drugs themselves, but of the medicinal virtues only of Vegetable remedies, extracted by chemical process in a state of purity, and combined together lasach a manner as to insure the best results. This ystem of composition for medicines has been found in the Cherry Pectoral and Pills both, to produce a more efficient remedy than had hitherto been ob tained by any process. The reason is perfectly ob tious. While by the old mode of composition, every medicine is burdened with more or less of acri monious and injurious qualities, by this each indi vidual virtue only that is desired for the curative effect is present. All the inert and obnoxious qual ities of each substance employed are left behind, the curative virtues only being retained. Hence it is self-evident the effects should prove, as they have proved, more purely remedial, and the Pills a surer, more powerful antidote to disease than any other mnedicme known to the world. As it is frequently expedient that my medicine should be taken under the counsel of an attending Physician, and as he could not properly judge of a remedy without knowing its composition, I have supplied the accurate Formula by which both my Pectoral and Pills are made to the whole body of Practitioners in the United States and British Amer ican Provinces. If, however, there should be any one who has not received them, they will be promptly forwarded by mail to his request. Of all the Patent Medicines that are offered, how few would be taken if their composition was known ! Their life consists in their mystery. I have an mysteries. The composition of my preparations is laid open to all men, and all who are competent to judge on the subject freely acknowledge their convictions of ther intrinsic merits. The Cherry Pectoral was Pronounced by scientific men to be a wonderful medicine before its effects were known. Many em .oent Physicians have declared the same thing of SY Pills, and even more confidently, and are will ng to _jtify that their anticipations were more tha. rliaed by their effects upon trial. S.gy operate by their powerful influence on the inteal s to purify the blood and stimulate it t healthy action-remove the obstructions of the stomac, bowels, liver, and other organs of the body, restoring their irregular action to health, and by erecting, wherever they exist, such derange msa a ae the'rurt origin of disease. 5Bing stgar-wrapped, they are pleasant to take, .and em purely vegetable, no harm can arise from hr ue i n a antity.

Y. Times of 3d publishes the following : The Messeis. Staude, tohbac.nists, No. 35 Congre-s street, closed their store last evening, leaving their favorite Newfotud land inside. This morning, on opening the store, the floor in the back room was found to be on fire, and the dog was laboring with his fore feet and mouth trying to subdue it. A pail of water which stood in the room had been pour ed down the hole. The faithful animal had so successfull comn batted the fire as to prevent its spreading beyond a spot two or three feet square. How long the noble fellow had stood sentinel and fought down the advancing dames can only be conjectured-it munt have been several hours. His feet, legs and mouth were badly burned, and it is feared that he is seriously injured internally by in hailing the hot air. He refuses food, and is apparently in much pain. We trust the sagacious and faithful creature is not dangerously injured. This is the same dog which discovered the man Laly on the ice a few weeks since. FAsmoss-A Prose Ballad-I saw her as she sailed along in an elegant silk balloon, and borne on by many a puff ot praise, all sung to an a la mode tune. I saw her as she trailed along, like a 'acer sharp and thin, and many a voice in ecstasy proclaimed that she would "win." I saw a coal scuttle Bonnet, with a front a foot or two, and rapturous praise, in a thousand ways, proclaimed that it would "do." I saw a cup and saucer stuck on the back of her head, and the very same crowd, with praises loud, declared .hat fashion led. Hurra for balloons and races, coal scuttles, cups and saucers too. To thunder with sense and reason, I'm bound to go crazy too. A CERTAIN CURE FOR A RATTLE SNAR.

Unless we wish to be deemed fantas tical, we must clothe our mind as we do our bodies, after the fashion in vogue. What is it you must keep after you have given it to another I Your word. Acceptance of Mr. Donelson. We were at first, and are still, satisfied with the entire ticket with which the American party, assembled in Conven tion at Philadelphia, in February last, have presented to the American people. Nor has that satisfaction abated one tittle since, but on the contrary has rath er been increased and stimulated by a more intimate and thorough acquaint ance with the stirling qualities that strengthen and enoble the character of Major Donelson. Everything that he has uttered or written since his nomina tion, bears the impress of the great mind that moulded and gave direction to his early political training, and fore shadows the manly truthfulness and vigor that may be justly claimed for an administration formed by such men as Mr. Fillmore and himself. Mr. Donelson is not of that class of politicians, who are so happily indicated by the appellation of trimmers. He speaks out with that boldness and inde pendance that characterizes the man of honor and worth. He speaks with dig nity. We herewith lay his letter ef ac ceptance before the public, and invite a calm and impartial examination. Many of the facts it contains convey a startling rebuke to the anti-American party, and clearly shows that they have wandered far from the great land marks of that Democracy known and practiced by Jefferson and Jackson.--B. R. Gazette. TULIP GROVE, near NASHVILLE, March 30th 1866. f Gentlemen: I did not receive until yesterday your official note of the 26th of Feb. last, informing me of your nom ination to the office of Vice-President, by the American party, and asking my acceptance of the same. For the tflattering terms in which you have communicated this procdeding, I beg leave to cffer you my sincere thanks. I accept the position assigned to me by I the American Party, with a just sense, I trust, ot the responsibility belonging to it. I attended the convention with no expectation that such an honor awaited te, and if my own feelings and wishes could have been consulted, it would have fallen on some other member of the American party, in whose ranks are so many distinguished individuals, better t known to the country, and better pre pared by experience, for the high duties of the station, should the voice of the people be in accord with that of which you are the organ on this occasion. But acting upon the maxim left us by the great men of the earlier days of our Republic, that public office should be I neither sought nor declined, I yield to the judgement of those who have t thought that my name might be ofservice in advancing the important objects which I constitute the American party. I constitute wue american party. Our leading idea is that the old parties, Democratic and Whig, have ceased to avert their former healthful influence in t the management of the public interest, and that, without the intervcution of re forms which they never can etfect, the beloved Constitution and Union, be queathed to us by our forefathers, will not long be preserzed. For the most of the evils with which we are threatened at the present period, the administration of President Pierce is certainly responsible; but instead of finding his party engaged in the prose t cution of measures to avert the daggers he has brought upon the land, we see it more active than ever in scattering the seeds of sectional strife and social an I archy. When Gen. Jackson came into the Presidency, he acknowledged in his in I sugural address the obligation of the I Executive to restrain the patronage of the Federal Government, so that it should not be brought into conflict with the fireedom of electins, But modern De D mocracy stands in direct antagonism to this obligation. There is scarcely an election precinct in the United States which has not witnessed the most shame ful interference with elections by the agents of the Federal Government act Sig in the name of Democracy. In former times, when parties were created by patriotic and national senti ments, upon measures of general interest to the country, we never heard that a measure could be declared Democratic in one place and not Democratic in another, by leading men professing to belong to this party. Yet we see this enormity exhibited by the party press inthe pay of the present Executive. The necessary result of such corrup tion, if not successfully opposed, must be to destroy all political morality, and con tinue power in unfaithful and incompe tent hands by the mere influence of the money derived from the taxes which are paid by the people for different purpo ses. It is undeniable that the antagonism now prevailing between the North and c South, is mainly attributable to the po- t litical artifice which has enabled men y holding directly opposite opinions on the v power of Congress over the institutions I of slavery in the Territories, but yet pro v fessing to belong to the same Democ,at- g ic party. The Nebraska-Kansas act is s constar tly called by one portion of Dem- v ocrats, a law which will prevent the ex- e tension of slavery to the Territories, and ii by another pertion, a law which will en- p able the South to carry slavery to the a Territories. By the same fallacy, seces sion, nulification, abolition, and all other isms have found a shelter under the flag , of Democracy, explained as it is by mod- f ern interpreters. In former times, also, our best patriots, without distinction of party, spoke of c the necessity of guarding the ballot box e from the dangers of foreign influence, and of keeping seperate the Church and State; and of the advantage to be de- t rived from a frequent recurrence to the earlier advice of our fathers, which incul cated a reverence for the compacts of the Constitution, and the abstinence from whatever tended to form geographical parties, or array one section of the Union against another. Now, however, the whole power of the Federal Government is brought to bear against any individual who has the independence to declare his attachment to these old-fashioned senti- e ments. Whole classes of men stand proscribed and ostracised for no other c offence than that of joining an associa. tion which seeks only to correct the ex cesses of party spirit and to restore the government tp the purity it possessed when we received it from the hands of P those sages who founded and reform- i ed it. Looking, gentlemen, upon the Amer icau party as destined to eradicate the Ii evils to which I have thus briefly adver ted, I am proud to be called one of its i members, and can only regret that in se lecting its flag-bearers, the choice for the ii Vice President had not fallen upon one who could bring to the cause higher guarantees for its success than can be drawn from the humble services I have heretofore rendered my country. Thanking you again for the kind man- , ner in which you have expressed your persoal gratification at the nominations, I I subscribe myself, Very respectfully your obt. sevt., i A. J. DosBLSON.

We endeavored to attract his attention by .ing to a ¶ in a pa pe? we held in our o', relating 2 a young man in that § of the country, who had left home in a state of mental de rangement. He dropped the f and pis tols from his Z".. with the ! "It is I of whom U read. I left home b4 my friends knew of my design.

Every one knows which it is, and Mrs. Pepperley only expressed the general inclination of the sex when her neighbor said : "You seem interested in the paper this week. Any news ?" "Oh no !" was the reply; "but I al ways enjoy myself so much over the marriages and deaths of my friends !"

I speak from what I know having tried the remedy with perfect satisfaction. ALL NATIONs-.The cosmopolitan or composite character of ourcity popula tion was well illustrated in West street yesterday morning. A veritable Turk was selling fancy soap at the corner of Barclay street; on the corner opposite was a Chinaman selling cigars ; a Dutch grocery was within hailing distance, and simultaneously emerging from the door were an African and a Dutchman. An effort was made to look up an A merican in the neighborhood, but when our re porter was :last heard from he had not arrived.-N. Y. Express. A country girl coming from the field, was told bi her cousin that she looked as fresh as a daisy kissed with dew. "Well, it wasn't any fellow by that name, but Bill Jones that kissed me; confound his picture, I told him that every body would find it out." In a shirt store window, in New York, the notice "Hands wanted on bosoms," was displayed. This attracted the at tention of a way, who coolly walked in, and, with an air of affected simplicity, inquired of the lady in the store, whose bosoms she wanted hands on ? "Jane," cried the lady, "bring me the broom and be quick !" FoR MOTHaRa' EYEs.-Mothers wha encourage their daughters in superficial accomplishments and bold display, are often preparing for them a lifetime of chagrin and misery. On the other hand, when they are trained at home, by pre cept and example, in retiring, industrious studious, virtuous habits, they are pre pared to be useful and happy throughout life. An Irishman trying "to put out a gas light with his fingers, cried out "Och, murder, the divil a wick's in it." "My lad," said a lady to a boy carry ihg an empty mail bag, "are you a male boy !"
