Tasin has long existed a public demand for an effe`e ative pill which could be relied on as re and pereety safe in its operation. This has been prepared to meet that demand, and n eten tite trial of its virtnes has conclusively shownwith what eooess it accomplishes the purpose designed. It is easy to make a physical pill, but not easy to make the best of all pills -one which should have none of the objections, but all the advantages, of vaty *er. This has been attempted here, and with what sneess we would respectfully submit to the public decision. It has been unfortunate for the patient hitherto that almost every purgative aeeiee is acrimonious and irritating to the bow il. This isnot. Many of them produce so much griping pain and revulsion in the system as to more thea coamterbalnnee the good to be derired from them. These pills produce no irritation or pain, anless it arise from a previously existing obstruc tion or derangement in the bowels. Being purely vegetable, no hann can arise from their use m any quanitity; but it is better that any medicine should be taken judiciously. Minute directions for their use in the several diseases to which they are ap plicable are given on the bor. Among the com plaints which have been speedily ciued by them, we may mention Liter Complaint, in its various forms of Jaundice, Indigestion, Languor and Loss of Ap petite, Listlessness, Irritability, Bilious Headache, Bilions Fever, Fever and Ague, Pain in the Side and Loins; for, in truth, all these are but the con sequence of diseased action in the liver. As an aperient they afford prompt and sure relief in Cos tiveness, Piles, Colic, Dysentery, Humors. Scrofula I and Scurry, Colds with soreness of the body, Ulers r and impurity of the blood, Irregularities ; in short, any and every case where a purgative is required. liter have also produced some singularly suc cessful cures in ItRheumatism, Gout, Dropsy, Gravel, Erysipelas, Palpitation of the Heart, Pains in the Back, Stomach, and Side. They should be freely p taken in the spring of the year, to purify the blood t and prepare the system for the change of seasons. An occasional dose stimulates the stomach and ' bowels into healthy action, and restores the appe-, tite and rigor. They purify the blood, and, by their s stimulant action on the circulatory system, reno vate the strength of the body, and restore the wasted or diseased energies of the whole organism. hence an occasional dose is advantageous, even though no serious derangement exists: but un- t. necessary dosing should never be cnrried too far, as every purgative medicine reduces the strength, hen taken to excess. The thousand cases in which I a physic is required cannot be enumerated here, but they sgg eat themselves to the reason of every 1 body+. a it is confidently believed this pill will h we a better purpose than any tlng which has hithrto been available to mankind. When their virtues are once known, the public will no longer r doubt what emedy to employ when in need of a eathartic medicine. Bemin sugar-wrapped, they are leaant to take, and being purely vegetable, no d, am can arise from their use In any quantity. der minute directions, see wrapper on the Box.

To our Sonuheru Readers. r - Amchr! sAes of the Sloth-.l'Wh of the rd- South. at It is thl Abolition cry North-th.t I "Fillmore a,,s no chance,''-and the Bu chanan cry, South,-and, belit-ving these two cries, many honest partiotic men ar,. I luiped. Now, if the fact were as stated t that is no reason why men shoull do I wrong, or fail to do right,-but the fact cannot be so unless made so,-bv Imen's I bn eing made the dupes of false cries. . ;( This canvass presents many unnsua 'ii 8 points of consideration, all worthy of th a more thought friom the very novelty of t< m:en's positions. Fremont, a SoutLhern i bord man, is brought up as an anti I Southern candidate; Buchanan, a North sI Srn-born man, is brought up as the anti pi Northern caudilate.-that is, a candi tk l iate to carry out the Pierce policy i, or K -nsas, and in the annexation of Cuba. th B &c., &c. The issue these two men pre- Ut sent is a fatal one to the peace and pros- to perity of the Union, because it is ..c in tior.al, and because it is certa:n to keep up sectional, feuds and fighlts. If Bu- F i chanan is elected, there is nothing set- i Lled,-because, in every Northern State, there will be large majorities against him as when the Fillmore and Fremont vote is pa combined. These majorities will not be o0 vanquished when Buchanan atte'mpts t, ri carry out the Cincinnati policy that elects Or him,-but, on the contrary, will be in ele creased by it, magnified and prol ,nged, The Yorth is not to be subdued any more we thai Ike South. Buctiaan minut either on betray the Southern ,.': that elect- kn him, or keep up just such feeling and tiit agitation in the North as Pierce's policy. in has created. Under this a gitltiou, 5Pi Southern in-titutions cannot prosper or cot thrive, for they want peace, and their iS I policy is peace, and they thrive best in Ja; peace--whereas agitation is the natural Cia abolition event. anI It is very easy for us Fillmore mrn it pro the North to throw every Northern votet r we think, in every Northern State, is i agsinst Buchanan. We have but to coa- gar lesce with Abolition, and divide the Elec- eve toral ticket, and the thing is done. Pent., Go siylvania, even, Buchanan's own State, can he carred against Buchanan by 30, tiot 000 majority. But we fight this battle mio upon principle, and considering Fremont Mi. unfit in person. and treacherous to th, vas: Union in political position, we canno re ,liI will not frm coaiitions, that ,mar ann ,.ive him evern mHiPir-int etronth-mrere Fill Iv to ensure a nominal victory. Buch ''ID mnan is weak in all the Northern States the -as the successor of the Pierce policy, met ,li)leh even the South dis, wnedl in throw f ll2 ;!g' Piit-re ov..r, and i:n taking up Rhuch- Nor anan-and it is very easyv to defeat'him. it in our own State of New York, lie is not even a practical candidate :is yet-only pre Scandidate inl lIthe . The ibattie herr is really betweln Fillmore and Fremot t, and we show that we tl:ink so. daily, by directing all our fire upon Fremont, and ignoring even the existence of Bhuchan an. Hence, if Buchanan is to receive Northern votes, it is only by the division of the opposiio, , and whatever Elector al tickets he wins, will disclose him to be in the minority. What, then, is the policy of the South? To cram down upon the North, Buchan an ? To elect Buchanan by the South ern, with any such Northern votes as accident give him, and thus to refurnish umaterial to the Northern fanatics for fur thier agitation ? What gains the South by this prolonged agitation V What to her institutions, what to her public men or public interests, to say nothing of the peril to the Union ? It is not pretended in the South that Buchanan is a truet man to the Union than Fillmore, and yet it is known and felt that the election of Fillmore will pacify the whole conntry, and restore harmony as in 1850, by set tling all disputes upon a just and patri otic basis, against which no sound com plaint can come from either section. It is not the triumph of either section that a just and patriotic American can desire, but with justice to all, an amnesty, a pa cification. But "Fillmore has no chance,"-we are told,-and, therefore, between Fre mont and Buchanan, we take Buchanan. In reply to this, IraSt,-there is no danger of Fremnont's election. The thing is mathematically impossible. He starts with fifteen Southern States dead against him, and in tile sixteen Northern States he must carry about all of them, certain ly Pennsylvania.-which it is not pre tended even that be has a chance carry ing against the friends of Fillmore there. Dispel, then, this allunsion, that the con teet is between Fremont and Buchanan -for the practical contest, where that is approached, is only between Fillmore and Buchanan. One or the other must certainly be President-Fremont never. Now.--what right has anybody South to say Fillmore has no chance in the North Have we not, within the two past years, twice carried this State for t his friends ? Is he less popular now than those frierds I Has he not even been the favorite of this State I Was he not even selected to be put on a ticket to carry this State I When Gen. Tay lor was run, the programme was to run t Abbot Lawrence with him,-but was not Fillmore taken in his stead, on pur pose to save this State ! Are his friends inactive! Did the South ever see such a canvass as we are now only beginnining to maket Were ever such public meet ins heard of before, as we are having ? t Did tile labor and industry of the work- t shotps ever pour out as they are now d pouring out for Millard Fillmore l-Was e there ever a party so well, so thoroughly a organized as the American party is inll the State of New Yoek.--s much of a tl unit, or marching so well in harmony 6 toward almost certain victory I Here S in the empire State is the battle ground, al -and we know it,-anl, if we go for h; Fillmore, we believe, so goes tile prize as in the end. cc Men, however ought not to gamble, K as it were in po!itics.--especially when ty parties become geographical; but, with- N out regard to results, do right. Is it wi right to elect Fillmore over Buchanan ? Bi Or, rather, is it not wr'ng, not thus to hi elect him ? Is, What Filimore's policy is, or is to be, ne we know from the records of 1850 and mn< on-but what Buchanan's are to be. we wS know not, because his party, for the first cai time, ha--.'interpolated a foreign plank in their ;atf.rm, which' under the in spiration of the Soule, milay etmbroil this AN country with all the world. Buchanan the is pledged to that policy. I am no more tat James Buchanan, he tells us, but the tilt Cincinnati platform ! Thus, war abroad tIM and continued discord at home, are the Um promised fruits of such an election ! Is let it not wrong, then, thus to vote? Nay, by is it not a crime-and without any re frig gard to Fillmore's chances. onuht not lan every man to' do right, knowing that min God, in the end, will maintain the right ? the It is a crime, too, to make this elec ov tion sectional, geographical, as the Fre- out mont and Buchanan men are making it. No M\illard Fillmore alone removes the can too vass from this danger of sectionality.- Col 'remont's strength is all North ; Buch- she mann's practical strength is all South.- ano Fillmore alone esnbodties the conservat- fort stm of the Union. Fillmore alone has Sta the hands and hearts orf the conservative pre, men in all parts of tile Union. It is a .e!h folly, then, to try to triumph over the tuai North with Buchanan, or over the South 1 with Fremont. r Now, the Express ianota journal that predicts or prophesies, as some other journals often do. Do right oilthout re ;yards to results, has ever been our max in and our policy. Hence, we have nt predictions 'o make, but we have a right to say the canvass, oe the part of the Filhnore party in the North. has scarce ly began. The history of Fremont. Fillmore's real combatant here, is not yet known to our farmers. They have heard of him only as a geographar, but thea have not heard of him yet as a states man, a soldeir, or as to his pnnciple.- The firse go of is already about gone of The Northern people are not long dupes and when duped, they soon emancipate themselves from the dupery. Tire more time giveu us, the more we increase oun strength. In the New England States we have not, as yet, fairly approashed the people-certainly not beyond the State of Connecticut-but, as we come before the public, we rapidly dispel the F-emont delusion. The whole Fremont sham is daily coming out, and daily emancipating men from it. When the people are reached on the stump, the friends of the Fremont press will soon vanish before a free discussion. The most alarming element of this canvass, especially to the South, is the abandonment of Democracy by the Ger mans, and to some extent by the Irish. hie American do not court foreign votes but accept them gratefully,-if given to American principles. The Democray of the North however, exists on, nay, breathes on its foreign vote. Take away its >reign vote,-au.l it is nowhere in the North on an election day, especially in in the villages, town and cities. Now he German vote, to a great extent. is gone over to Fremont,-and this aban donment of this portion of the Northern Democracy shows how little reliance the South can really place on the Northern Democratic party. In the very'first sec tional onset, the Foreign Democracy of the Democratic party enlists in a section al warfare against tie South. The 'red' Germans and the "Black" Republicans are in close alliat e- against the South, & uth all are equally the enemies of Fillmore the What is the duty of the Southern men two then, in such a crisis as this? To keel for up its alliance with such a Northern low I Democracy I Certainly not,-but on ven the contrary, is it not its duty to ally it Vas self with the constitut:onal conservatism ket of the North,--that great Ameri&n party ay- which Millard Fillmore heads.and which run he illustrated in his administration of vas the Government, when President. ur Fillmore is no Northern man with ids Southern principles, nor Southerrn man ich with Northern principles, but a sound, ng national. conservative man of the school et of Washington and Madison. Equity to S? the Union is his great characteristic, to k- the North as well as to the South. We )w do not offer him to the South as a South as ern min, but as a Northern man, tried ly and true to all parts of the Union, and in so satisfying and pacifying all parts of at that Union. He was President not of rt fifteen slave States, and sixteen free re States but of thirty one United States, t, and he untited all in 1850, and made all ir happy and content. Elect him once, ce and peace once more is returned to the country, and in less than six months the y, Kansas war will be hushed in that equi n ty, which will satisfy all but extremes, is North and South,-and peace once more it will be restored to the distracted States. ? But keep up this sectionalism of candi o dates or of men,-pledged, as Buchanan is, to re-open old wounds, and to make new ones,-and shere will be peace no i more, notiing but that prolonged bitter e war of words, which ever ends in the t t clash of arms. a "D TE FRIENDS OF THE CONSTITUTION AND THE UNIONm."-When speaking of c the re fuse of all parties and races consti i teting the Foreign party, says the Ba!- ih timnore Clipper, their organs call them h the "friunds of the Constitution and the Union." This is about the most impu n dent of all the impudent things ever said k by them. How long have they been h friends of the Constitution ? In Mary. h land we always knew them as the ene a mies of Constitutions, and at one time they ventured on a revolutionary step to " overthrow the State constitution which U "ur fathers bequeathed to us. In every w Northern State and some Southern ones C too, they were altering and clhanging Constitulions more than twice in the short space of twenty years, end hare 0 now left a remnant of those which were hi formed about the time that the United p; States Constitution was adopted. A precious party, then, are they to set them se!lves rp as " the friends o: th3 Conati- Pf tution!"' C i, Their caimn to being recognized as frienls of the Union," is no stronger than that they set up as "friends of the Constitution." Who are now their lea ders in the South but those secessionists whom Gen. Jackson discarded as ene ;nins of the Union I And who are their great men at the North but the elder , and younger Van Buren, and their disciples, who figured as such active and t rabid disunionists at the time Clay, Web. t ster, Dickinson, Houston, Foote and i Clemens, were zealously 'and cordially j co-operating together to save the Union by means of the Compromise of 1850! Why, the very thought is sufficient to r cause the very bones of Andrew Jackson and Henry Clay to rattle in their coffins! That portion of the good people of a this and other States who wish to " vote for the Constitution and the Union." a must turn away with loathing from the i candidates of the State Constitution de . stroyers and the Northern and Southern e ,lisunionists, and vote for Fillmcre and Donelson. Henry Clay has endorsed the one and Andrew Jackson the other, as true and reliable friends of both the Constitution and the Union. FLtnoaQ MovaxNTrs.-At the mee ting of the Fillmnire and Donelson Na tional Union of Philadelphia, held at e the Headquarters, corner of Fifth and Chesnut streets, the Hon. Isaac Hazle . hurst in the course of a most eloquent sland effective speech, announced his de termination to speak in every Ward of I the city, and in the surrounding coun ,ties in advocacy ofthe Ameaican nomi nees. The "Buckeye Blacksmith," was e on hand, and was warmly applauded dan ring his remarks. v Meetings of the Fillmore Union are s held weekly, and are invariably well at tended. On Monday evening, hundreds , of persons were unable to obtain admit'. e tance to the room, so dense was the throng. The Constitution. which was open but a few evenings ago, has already f received nearly five hundred signatures and in the course of a little time, hun, I' dreds of names will be added. At prese aent the "Union" is the largest politie ok rganization in the cityf re. A UIRL MAN.-Une ot thu teut Lulug. .n, uiar instances of disguise, as regards sex, eP says the New Yo.k ler:ld, came to the on knowledge of the police yesterday. A it young, well dressed and seemingly mol in et girl, came to the Fifth ward station Y house yesterday, and asked to be sect 0, back to her family in Buffalo, as she ha i no means of support. Capt. Carpenter b, questioned the seeming girl as to her his n I tory, when after some hesitation, he was informed that a male in disguise was talking to him. He did not believe the story, but sent the confessed young gent to the Chief's office, but there the officers were equally incredulous. The seeming girl was of tall and slender shape, with wild blue eyes, and soft feminine cheeks f chin, without a sign of beard being visi ble. .The hair was long, and done up behind like a woman's, and even the shuldaers and bus: were those of a young female. The party was taken fromu one office to another, but was pronounced a female by all who saw her. There was but one way of settling the matter de finitely, and one of the officers made in vestigations, and certiffed that the party was a male without any question. The young gentleman was interro, gated as to his history, and he stated that he was a native of Albany, and about 19 years of age. His buriness was that of a segar maker; but he very often traveled abroad as a woman, as he liked the dress and felt more at home in it than in the male costume. He found himself in the city yesterday without money,and was forced to make hisstory known in order to get means to take him-on to Bufdlo, where .i portion of his family resided. He gave his name as Charles Cuotis. The young gentle] man was taken, up to Mayor Wcod, and introduced to-him and to other "note worthy personm in the City Hall. and Curtis was pronounced on all hands a moat wonderful counterfeit wornan. Officer Mastertou was instructed to take him to the Erie Railroad depot, sad procure for him a free pass over the road to Buffalo, ifpqpible; but the railroad people were incredulous as to the iex of Curtis, and would not grant a free pass until they assured themselves of the truth of what the seeming girl said. In the evening. Curtis took his departure in the Erie train, without changing his costume. The officers prononnced this. the most extraordinary case of the I ind they ever had to do with. ABOLITrraIOla FOR BUCHANAN.-' There has been a large acces.ion of Abo litionists in New England and elsewhere to the cause of Mr. Buchanan. WM. LLOYD GARRISON, PARKER. PILLSBURY, WENDELL PHILLIPS -these are the jewels which the Demo cratic party are adding to its treasures, and the Auti Slavery Standard of Ma.. sachnsetts and the Anti Slavery Bugle of Ohio are now the co-workers of the Washington Union, Richmond Enquir er, Ohio gStatesman and Cincinnati r-r quirer. That Winm. L. Garrison, the Cerberun of Abolition, and his clan, should sup port the pretensions of Buchanan, says the New Orleans Bulletin, should excite the alarm of every man in the Southern States.
