certificates, from all parts where the P'ills have [
ben 'ised, but evidence even more coniincing than
t.,> esperience of eminent public men is found in t
their effects upon trial.
These Pills. the result of long investigation anda s
study, are offered to the public as the best and
most complete which the present state of medical i
science can afford. They are compounded not of
the drugs themselves. but of the medicinal virt, as
only of Vegetable remedies. extracted by checllitta
process in a state of purity, aned cnmbineid trigi.ther
in such a manner as to insure the taest results. IThis
system of composition for medicines has beenl found
in the Cherry Pectora;l and Pills both, to producea a
more efficient remedy than had hitherto been ob
tained be anu process. The reason is perfectly oh
vimlr. .Vhile byh the old mode of composition, every t
medicine is burdened with more or less of acri
mnoniots and injturious qualities, by this each indi
vidual virtue only that is desired for the curative I
effect is present. ,411 the inert and obnoxious qual
Ities of each substance emplloyed are left behind. the
cuarative virtues only beilng retained. lHence it is
self-evident the effec.Ls shiould prove, as the ha:ve i
proved, more purely remedial, and the Pills a surer.
snore powerfnl antidote to disease than any other
medicimne known to the world.
As it is frequently expedient that my medicine
should be taken under the counsel of an attending
l'hysician, and as he could not properly judge of a
remedy without knowing its camposition, I have
supplied the accurate Formnul iby which both my
Pectoral and Pills are made to the whole body of
Practitioners in the UInited States and British Amer
Iran Provinces. If, however, there should he any
one who has not received them, they will be
promptly forwarded by mail to his request.
Of all the Patent lMedicines that are offered, how
ew would be taken if their composition was knowt!
Their life consibts in their mystery. I have na
wsteries.
'lThe composition of my preparations is laid open
Sto all nlen, and all who are competent to judge on
the subject freely acknowledge their convictions of
their intrinsic merits. The Cherry Pectoral was
prolnoitnced by scientific men to be 'a wonderful
mnedicine befoie its effects were known. Many em
bent 'Phvsieians have declared the same thing of

Retribution.
The Germans throughout the non-slave
holding States, says the New Orleans Bee, e
have signalized the soundness of their Democ
racy by a general desertion to the Freesoil
camp. Ilere and there may be seen, as a
monument of fidelity, a German sheet which
still adheres to the party, but this is a rare
spectacle. Nothing can be more absolutely
certain. more incontrovertible than that the
vast majority of Northern Germans affiliate
with Black Republicanism. If in the South
they ilave not enlisted under the standard of
Fremont, it is because there is no such can
didate presented for their suffiages. Their
tendencies are clearly manifested by the tone
of their leading organ-the Deutsche Zie- i
tung.
With regard to the Irish. they have dis
played less eagerness and haste in abandon
ing the Democratic party. Weeks ago, how
ever, their leading organs in the North threa
tened the party with the loss of the Irish ia
turalized vote. if Mr. Hlerbert failed to receive
condign punishment for what they were
pleased to consider the murder of Keatir:g.
Now that Herheit has been acquitted, and
neither expelled nor rebuked by Congres.
we may possibly anticipate something of the
same stampede which has characterized the
S(;,ellan population.

in deprecating this false and mischievous po
lchy. and in urging upon naturalized citizens
the wisdom and propriety of fusing comple
tely with the other component pitrts of the
s body politic: of merging their identity in
that of the masses, and of speaking and act
ing not as Irnasmen, Germans, or Spaniards.
Sbut as Americans citizens. 'Thre is no
doubt whatever that had the press every
- where advocated this safe and salutary prin
ciple, we should never have heard of an
American party: far less should whe he oblig
ed to witness at the present day the disgrace
ful spectacle of large masses of naturalized
citizens banding together, as such. for the ex
press purpose of sustaining a Free-oil candi
late for President. But the Democratic or
gans andi their leaders discountenanced the
patriotict and prudent suggestion. It was
they who continually appealed to the adopt
ed citizen in behalf of his original, and not
his acquired nationality. The lIishman was
d implored to stand by Democracy. because
:- Democrats were his peculiar friendii: and
the German was besought to support Demo- th
eracy. because it was the only party that
supported and encouraged him. At every p,°
litical contest the Democratic press flamed
forth its ardent a;peals and supplications to t(
the f ireign voters, calling on them as such. to i
-'stain the party ticket. The obvious and w
inev:;table result of this conduct was to foster sI
alld keep alive distinctions which the very
act of naturalization was intededl to annihi- t
tate and efface; since the foreigner who ab
jures his allegiance to all Kings. Princes. or S
Potputates,and especially to him under whose P
flag he was born, does, by s irtuc of this oath t
completely divest himself of his original na- v
tionality, and should be henceforward nleither
more nor less than an American citizen. To
the improper and censurable line of policy
adopted by the Democratic party are we in
a great measure to ascribe the continuance of a
these unwise 'istinctions. To their unscru- e
pulous pandering to the foreign sentiment as 0
such, must we attribute this unnatural blend
ing of a double nationality.
Now the fruitsof itare visible. One large
branch-perhaps the largest-of the natural
ized population of the country-indiffe rent to
the flattery, the allurements, the promises
and the cajolery of the Democratic party
pursues its natural instincts, and goes over to
Black Republicanism. Whether the others
will follow we cannot say; but whether it
does, or does not, the moral of the fact is t
equally evident. We think that after the
contest of 1856, self-interest, if not sage se
flection, will admonish the Democratic party
to avoid for the future its efforts to secure
the support of adopted citizens by the repre
hensible means heretofore employed.
Pencious YouTt.-The New York Eve
ning Post, in the course of a long and very
knowing article on Mr. Fillmore, says : " If
we are not mistaken, in 1812 Mr. Fillmore
was co-operating with Mr. Buchanan, in de

tration of James Madison, then a candidate
for re.election to the Presidency." Accor

A Goon ANSWER.-The report that lIon.
Elisha Whittlesey, the veteran of the Unit
ed States Treasury, had come out for Buch
anan, has called forth just such an answer as P
we should expect from an honest man hold- of
ing office. He says : at
Permit me to say throught the medium of
your paper that. since I have held office in ap
this city. it has been my aim to practice most de
rigidly, what was professed to be the true at
doctrine by the Democrats in 1825, and by th:
the Whigs in 1840, "that no subordminate offi
cer in any department should interfere in the "
State or the Presidential elections."
As a citizen of the United States, I am not no
insensible to the impoitance of the election
of the nexb President. and I hope the people
may, under the guidance of Providence. select ac
that man who will, by his wsalom and patrot- th
ism. restore and preserve peace at home,and vi
maintain amity with other governments.

WiArT TvuYr s.y NoaT.-WVhilst the oppo- I
sitioon papers and leaders at the South are try- T
ing to prove MIr. Fillmore an abolitionist, the
Black Republican party at the North art de
nouncing him as the champion of slavery.
Col. Wehbh the editor of the New York Cou
rier and Enquirer, in noticing the course of
tile American party in Congress, makes the
follorwing complaint :
How stood the party on the vote last week
fui admitting Kansas with her free conststu
tion Not a man of them voted in favor of
the bill. exeepting Mlcssrs. Milwlard and
IEdie, of Pennsyivania. We don't include
Bavnrd Clarke of this State, for lie is no Ion
ger a Fillmore man.
S'Thuis, it is seen, that on every question
touching the extension of slavery into the
Territories. or its interests and credit as an
0 institution, the American party in Congress
d which now supports Mr. Fillmore, as a pro
slavery party is asstronglyand completely so
as the Administration party itself. This
might have been interred at the outset, from
the fact that five-sixths of the present sup
porters of Mr. Fillmore in Congress are
r Southern men, and five-sixths of the news
e papers which sustain him are Southern news
papers. But we have given, in the above ci
tation of votes, specific: positive proofs, from
t- which there is no escape.
2'r e fact is indisputable, that the support of
Mr, Lillnore is the support of Slavery License
and propagandim.
Is it not time when such charges are made
against Mr. Fillmore at the North, and every
effort made there to defeat him on the ground 1
of his friendship for the South, that every
southerner should rally to his support ? At
any rate, let us hcar no more of his abolition
ism.

WoN'T SUPPORT A FEDEBALIS.--TheAl
legan (Michigan) Journal, relates the follow
ing characteristic anecdote. The old soldiers
of 1812 have yet a spark republican fire burn
ing brightly in their patriotic hearts. and
they will not tolerate the man who denounced
James Madison and the republican party of
that day, for engaging in " the second war of
Independence :-a war to secure the rights of
American sailors on the high seas.
A man who would not defend the rights of
American sailors cannot he trusted with the
guardianship of the great interests of the Re
pnblic. But to the anecdote. The Journal
says:
It did our heart good to hear the responses
fmade by Col. John Littlejohn, a soldier of
1812, and hither to an old-line Democrat, to
one of our country officers. who inqiired
whether Buchanan ws a Federalist. Yes,'
Ssaid the Colonel, ".Buchanan was speaking
against my country when I was fighting her
battles! Can I support such a man as Bu
chanan for the Presidency No,stir!" The
officer had no mor. quebtionsto asq The
i noeuation of Bucbanan falls still-born amon;
the Democrats of Allegan county.
Buchanan's Prospects at the North.
cc
We are very sensible of the fact that strong nl
party men. estimating the chances of success i m
of the several candidates for the Presidency, T
are influenced to a degree by their predilec- I.
lions and prejudices. Our judgement is very ti
apt to be controlled by our inctinations and el
desires. and we are often disposed to believe tr
a thing to be so becruse we desire it; and tl
this pre-judgement may be entirely consistent o
with honesty and ingenuousness. 13
It is for this reason that we give little or tl
no credit to the anonymous communications c
we see in the party press, purporting to give re
accurate accounts of the state of opinion in
the localities the writers reside in, or have 0
visited. These are the stale expedients of!
party hacks and party organs. The well ad
vised and reflecting portion of the public
know the process and machinery, by which
'correspondence" of this kind is manufactur
ed to order, and appreciate it accordingly.
But when we have the deliberate statement d
of an eye-witness. a man known to the pub
lic and occupying a resonsible position, and
whose statements are in conflict with his i
own inclinations and interest, the testimony
of such a credible witness is worth that of a
thousand anonymous letter.writers. We
have precisely such a witness now on the
stand, to prove the true position of M.fr. Buch
anan at the North. This testimony is com
prised in a letter published in the Georgia
Tel'legraph. a leading and influential journal
in the Southern Empire State. The Colum
bus (Ga.) Enquirer prefaces the extract with
following remarks:
"The following is an extract of a letter,
dated New York, July 10th, to the Georgia
Telegraph. It was written by its editor Mr.
Clisby. who is Fow at the North. With such
Democratic admissions of theuntter hoplessness
of Buchanan's cause in every one of the
Northern States, is it not folly to keep him
longer in the field! Mr. C. has seen and
conversed with well.informed Democrats,
and therefore has their own opinion to back
his own observation. Of the strength of the
Fillmote party he cannot be so well inform
ed, nor can he speak so impartially. Our;
own advices from the North are encouraging
for Fillmore, and satisfy us that he cannot
fail. in any contingency. to get a large rro.
portion of the Northern electoral vote. But
to the letter of the editor of the Telegraph:
-N. O. Budletin.
Be this as it may, however, the current
floating opinion here. i. most decided that
Fremont will carry, without difficulty. every
non-slaveholding State--ces Penusylvasia.
I have just seen a friend who returned yester
day from the rural districts in Pennsylvania,
and he says the drift is all for Fremont, so far
as he could see. So westward, I heard, all
the indices of the popular feeling are for Fre
mont. I saw yesterday a Southern friend
who has been locomoting around Vermont,
and the strongest abolition regions of New
England-a talking and observing fiieno.
and ' dyed in the wool" Democrat. tHe said
he found only three Buchanan and ond Fill.
more man in those parts. In the city here,
swhiichkis usially rather liberal and co-mopo
litan in opin.In, the Freesoil ticket, so far,
rules the roo,:. The most moperate of the
old Whig party are going for Fillmore--but
the bulk of the party is going for Fremont.
The first classification named comprehends
all of the more modern political development
of Kow Nothingism, which Mr. Fiillnore
5seems likely to get. Buchanan's vote, so far
as can be judged, is confined to the regular
Democracy, shorn of the more Freesoiish I
and tishy portion of the same.
SGreatly to our surprise, the N. T.
Mirror, heretofole independent in politics, but
ever conservative and friendly to the South,
has declared its preferences for FasaM.orT.
We must confess things look startling, when I
such a journal as the Mirror is drawn into
the vortex of Black Republicanism.
The Albanny SLatcsman speaks of Mr. Br
caA.&N's prospects as follows:
There is nothing more certain than that I
Buchanan has not the shadow of a prospect 1
in New York. His case is hopeless in this
State. blistory does not furnish an instance
where a candidate has gone down so sudden
ly as Buchanan. A month ago he was for
midable-to-day he is out of the question.
There is no human power that can save him.
and we have no idea that any other power
will be exerted in his favor.
In corroboration of this, we find in the col
umns of several New York papers a card
signed by one hundred and twenty old-line
Democrats, lheaded by TIMOTHY JENKI S, in
vittng all the Democrats of the Empire State
Sho are opposed to the proceedings of the
tCincinnati Convention, to assemble at Syra
cuse on the 24th, "in such numbers as will
Sfairly represent the real sentiments of the
Democratic massesof the different districts
of this State, for the purpose of consultation,
and, if deemed proper, for political organiza'
'tion and action."' This is a pregnant sign.
s iLL.lnoistThe Illinois Independent says
f there appears to be but one party in Herki
o mer county, the party of freedom and Fre
d mont. It claims 000 majority. A post
' master in one of the towns was inquired of
g from Washington as to the prospect in his
r neighborhood. He wrote back that there
r- was not a Buchanan man in town--not even
e hnimself; and if he was to be turned out for
is,.ying so. he had this satizfaction, that no
Sone but a Fremont man could be aprointed.,
as thcre wa no other in town.
MIR. Fir.LMOR0's SPEECH AT AL5AnY.- rr
copy the following eommunication from a late d
number of the Baltimore Americans, and com- a
mend it to the careful perusal of our readers. at
The writer but echoes the almost universal a
sentiment of the country, in his commenda- I
tion of Mr. Fillmore's speech at Albany. No o
speech has ever been delivered in the coun- c
try that has so fully occupied the attention of n
the people-so thoroughly reached the hearts d
of all patriotic men. irrespective of party. t,
Buchanan papers, Fillmore papers. and neu- d
tral papers have *'led with each .other in e
commending its spirit and tone. Put to the n
remarks of "An Old Line Whig : :
Mlessre. EDITons : I read with sentiments a
of mingled pleasure and admiration .Mr. Fill
more's speech at Albany, published in the
Patriot of the 28th of June, and hope it will
be published in all the papers in these United
States. for I venture to assert that every
friend of the Union, whether he be Democrat 1
Whig or American. will approve the senti
ments therein expressed. I had a high esti- t
mate of the speaker before; as an indlepen
dent, upright and true-hearted patriot; but
this speech, delivered under the circumstan
ces. in a free State, by a candidate for the
Presidency. has raised Mr. Fillmore greatly
in my estimation, and placed him by the side
of the immortal Clay, as a man who will not
disguise his opinions for the sake of popular
Ity. Mr. Clay would have been President of
the United States but for the honest avowal
of his sentiments, without considering wheth
er they would be popular or otherwise. The
trickery of Mr. Buchanan in regard to the
charge of bargain and corruption, and his I
talsehoods in Pennsylvania, in saying that
Mr. Polk was a better Tariff man than Henry
Clay, could not have kept him from the
White House. The avowal by Mr. Clay, of
his opinions on all occasions, combined with
the tlicks of such men as James Buchanan
defeated him. Is there an American citizen
who will ruilect on the speech of Mr. Fill
more, who will not say that he would make
the safest President of any man now a candi
date ? Can any Southern Wnii or Democrat
gai.say one sentiment contained in that pat
riotic speech 7 Can the old line Whigs en
tertain a single doubt as to the course which
they ought to pursue. The writer at one
time doubted whether it would not be better
for Mr. Fillmore to retire and leave the con
test between the Democrats and the Repub
licans. The nomination of Mr. Buchanan.
the traducerof Henry Clay. and the demon
strations everywhere in favor of Mr. Fill
`more have convinced him, as an old line
Whig, in no way attached to the American
party, that the old Whigs will do dishoror
to themselves should they not vote for the
man whom they once elevated to office. and
who proved himself worthy of their contidence
Why should they now turn their backs upon
him ? Are his opinions at war with the best
interests of his country ? The true-hearted
men of the North, and there are many such,
can but admire the stand that Mr. F. has
taken : and the writer will be greatly mis
taken if some oJ the patriotic States of the
North d.. not roll up for him a handsome ma
jority. In all sincerity, the writer believes
that Mr. Fillmore has a better chance for an
election by the people than any other candi
date. Conservative men of all parties. and
especially the old Whigs, will support him,
however some of them may disagree with
the American party on some points. The
,author of these remarks does not agree with
I the American party on same points in their
I creed ; but he tIhiuks duty and patriotism call
upon him to cast his vote for the American
candidate.

The Washington correspondent of the New

The alarm has been sounded, and the States n
of Kentucky, North Carolina, Missouri, Mary- tl
land and Deleware are declared in open re
bellion against Buchanan. The discovery
was made in cucus last night, when money V
and organizations were voted as essential in a
those States to the security of the Democrat
Sic ticket. Thus we have it that the amount
of means necessary to keep the South straight t
for Buchanan, with her one hundred and
r twenty votes, has been found to have been

A SCcrlT OoDSa 1n ITALY.- -Th impan"
ding crisis in the affairs of the Italian States
a subject of no little anxiety to European
statesmen, if in a great measure, the work of
a certain society. which ramifies over the
whole peninsular, and forms the chief suppom t
of the conservative church party. This so
ciety is called the "Sanfedesti," but the
name in fullis " Catolica Apostolica Societa
dei Sanfedesti;" it is placed under the pro
tection of the police, and its objects is the
defence of the throne and the altar, and the
extermination of the liberals by all possible
means. The following is the formula .f the
oath which each member must take upon his
admission to the brotherhood .
OATSI.
" In presence cf tlhAll-powerful God the
Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, of the
ever-immaculate Virgin Mary. and of all the
celestial court, and of thee, venerated father,
I swear to let my right hand and my thrsat
be cut, to die of hunger in the most terrible
torments, and I pray the all-powerful God to
condemn me to the eternal tortures of hell. if
I betray or deceive one of the venerates
fathers or brothers of the Catholic Apostolic
Association in which I now enroll myself ;
if 1 do not scrupulously fulfill its laws. and
help my brothers so to do in case of need.
swear to remain firm in the defence of the
sacred cause which I have embraced-to
spare no individual of the infamous sect of
liberals, whatever be his birth, his pareptage,
his position; to take no pity on the tears of
infants or of the aged, but to shed the last
blood of the infamous liberals, whatever be
their sex or age. Finally. I swear an impla
cable hataed to all the enemies of our Cath
olic and Roman faith, the only true religion "
f! It would be impossible to find the formula
of an oath more terrible than this. The "San
ifdesti,'.thus embodied, are the Sbirri of the
Papal ptlice, and in their eyes jealous hus
bands or unfortunate creditors become infa
mous liberals tram the moment they are paid
for putting such persons out of the way. It
is rot surprising that, in order to resist this
secret foe, the bewildered liberals should:
claim the right to use the same arms. The
existence of this society is one df the causs
of those frequtiit political assassisations
which disgrace this unhappy country.-E-e

d New York Commercial in drawing a contrast
' between Buchanan and Fillmore, says:
Fillmore is a younger man than Buchanan.,
h has a more consistent record : more experi

. and eminently successful discharge of those
duties at a most critical time; has the conl

FILLMOfI Is GoaGIA.- It is 5deistttel on
all sides that a great reaction in favor of Fill
more has taken place in Georgia The Co
lumbu. Times, one of the strongest Dtnmorra
tic papers in the State. concedes it. In its last
issue, the Times uses the following language .
"We are frequently asked if there is aiy
truth in the alleged reaction in favor of Fill
more at the South. Candor compels us t sea,
there is."
The Times of course does not give up the
State, but it very materially reduces the ma
jority it claimed for Buchanan short time ago.
The Columbia Enquirer commenting on the
article of the Times. says:
"In this case, they might as well attempt
to arrest the current of the Gulf Stream as tor
I make head against the influence of Mr. Fill
more's speeches (which the Times acknow -
leges to be the cause of the reaction.) The
truth there is no majority against Fillmore in
Georgia. A very large majority of our people
ardently desire him to he restored to the Pres
idency; and .lasa they are duped by the flim
sy and dgsigrring pretence that he cannot he
elected, they will give him as Vgeat a ma
e jority as that of 1848."
The junior editor of the same paper writing
from the central part ofthe State, says:
• Since the American Copventio, there has
been a decided revolution in favor of Mr. Fill.
