Canadian Vermifuge.
THE best remedy ever yet discovered
for all kinds of WORM S. It not only destroys
Worms and invigorates the whole system, but it
dissolves and carries off the superabundant slinie of
mucus, so prevalent in the stomach and bowels of
children, more especially of those in bad health.—
The mucus forms the bed or nest in which Worms
produce their young, and by removing it, it is im
possible for worms to remain in tbc body. It is
harmless in its effects on the system,and the health
of the patient is always improved by its use, even
when no worms are discovered ; the mediciue being
palatable, no child will refuse to take it, not even
the most delicate.

More Home Testimony in Favor of
N ew O rleans , Feb. 25, 1848.
To Dr. Sherman's Agent, 151 Chartres street:
Dear Sir—Having derived great benefit from the
use of Dr. Sherman's Balsam, you will permit me
to address a few lines to you. I have been troubled
for a long time with a bad cough, together with
raising blood, to such a degree that I could scarcely
talk without coughing. A friend of mine advised
tue to try Dr. Sherman's Balsam, and in less than
two weeks after its use, I find myself perfectly well,
and able to attend to my business. I have recom
mended it to several of my friends, and in all cases
witli success.
Yours, dear sir, with respect.
Clerk for T. L. White, 53 Canal st.
Residence,24 Maria street. New Orleans
Having accidentally become acquainted with the
viitues of Dr. Sherman's All-Healing Balsam, I
have no hesitation in declaring that its use in my
family warrants the assurance that it possesses all
the gifted qualities attributed to it. In one case,
where the medicine was taken on my recommenda
tion. the effect was almost magical, as the Cough
and Expectoration of mucus matter bore a strong
analogy to a decided consumptive tendency. I be
lieve a moie general knowledge of this medicine is
only required to place it among (he best curatives
extant, for Consumption, Dyspepsia and other dis
eases arising from a disorganized state of the stom
ach and affections of the lungs.
13 Camp st., New Orleans;
M obile , December7th. 1847.
I hereby certify, that for 18 months I had been
lingering under Consumption, and expected every
day to be my last. At length I procured a bottle of
Sherman's Balsam, and it raised me as it were from
the grave. It cured mo, and I am now rible to at
tend to my daily avocation of a boatman.

Tlic Albany Meeting.
h . 4ii , 'c i .-I "
The squall at Albany has purified the
air, and the Whig party, instead of suf
' 1
fering dissolution, has been strengthened
and invigorated by the commotion of the
political elements. A letter from Albany
to the New York Express, says :
Alrany , Aug. 20.
* * * The newspapers will give
you the particulars of a meeting on Mon
day evening, which has resulted, I may
add, in doing great and good service to
the Taylor and Fillmore ticket. We
have been much indebted to Mr. Collier
for the admirable manner in which he di
rected the excited feelings of the assem
bly on Saturday evening—an excitement
created altogether by false telegraphic re
presentations from New York. Mr.
Wheaton made a very able speech, and
came out heartily for Taylor.
The resolution to support the electoral
ticket nominated by the State Convention,
was carried almost unanimously. There
were not, I think, a dozen voices in the
whole meeting against it, and these, I
presume, were Locofocos—so that this
indignant meeting, called expressly for
the purpose of denouncing Taylor, was
turned into a real ratification meeting—
about the best, and I think the very best,
ànd most effectual, that we have had
during the campaign.
For the benefit of our Loco readers we
subjoin the report adopted at the adjour
ned meeting. They are heartily welcome
to all the comfort they can find in it:
The committee to whom was referred
the correspondence between Mr. Pringle,
as chairman of a Taylor meeting in
Charleston, S. C., and Gen. Taylor,
Respectfully report:
That they have given the supject their
careful and deliberate consideration, and
are led to believe that the respectable
meeting, by whom your committee were
appointed, have aeted under some misap
prehension as to the position assumed by
Gen. Trylor in this correspondence.
It seems to have been supposed that
this nomination, communicated in the
Pringle letter, and accepted by Gen.
Taylor, emanated from a Whig meeting,
who had repudiated the nomination of
Millard Fillmore, our candidate for Vice
President; and under that impression, it
might well bo, expected that such an act of
supposed treachery, on the part of
Southern Whigs, would have provoked the
just indignation of the Whigs of the North,
and particularly of his friends aud fellow
Whigs iu his own State. It turned out,
however, that this nomination of Taylor
and Butler, in truth, comes from a body of
seceding Locofocos, who have very
properly discarded their own candidate,
Gen. Cass, and put a better man in bis
place; and that Gen Taylor, in his answer,
while he accepts the nomination on its
face to come from the "Democratic
citizens of Charleston," expressly tells
them, his acceptance is "without pledges
or conditions."
Your committee do not see in this letter
of General Taylor, anything inconsistent
with the course he has uniformly pursued,
and he was nominated at the Whig Na
tional Convention, with full knowledge of
the position he thus octyipied. If this move
ment had proceeded from seceding
Whigs, who had abandoned Mr. Fillmore,
and refused to support him, it would have
presented a very different question, but we
must do the Southern Whigs the justice to
say, that, so far as we are informed, they
have throughout acted with perfect good
faith toward» Mr. Fillmore; and their
Whig banners are all, without a single
exception, inscribed with the names of
"Taylor and Fillmore." Let not the whigs
of New York then, set the example of bad
faith, which they have been so eager to
condemn, in the mere anticipation of that
disaffection which now proves never to
have existed amoug the Southern Whigs.
South Carolina boasts of never having
given anything but a Democratic vote in
thirty years. We have always conceded the
vote of that State to Cass and Butler.
Shall we put ourselves in a passion if
Taylor shall help us to a split ticket in
that State? Oa the contrary, ought we not
to rejoice at it, and be glad to compromise
for such a vote?
Your committee deem it the imperative
duty of all Northern Whigs, and particu
larlyofthe Whigs of New York, who have
been favoured with the nomination of a
L aildidate from their own State for Vice
j President, to support in good faith the
nominees of the Philadelphia Convention.
We are now,to choose between Taylor and
Fillmore on tire one hand, and Cass and
Butler on the other. We all had our pre
ferences, and our favorite candidates, for
the nominations. We have many of us
been grievously disappointed in the result.
But Taylor and Fillmore are now the onlv
candidates of the Whig party, and we
surely ought not to hesitate to give that
ticket our united support. So long as the
Whigs of the South are true to us, let u -
without faltering, be true to them:
Your committee have, upon fullconsi j
eration,unanimously agreed to submitand
recommend to this meeting, the following
Resolved —That the further considera
tion of this subject be referred to the
Whig State Convention, and that we will
cordially support the Electoral Ticket
which that convention shall nominate.
All which is respectfully submitted.

How Cass votes are Manufactured.—
On Wednesday night as the packet
Cataract was coming ftom the West to
this city, after the passengers were all in
their berths, conversation continued quite
lively, the temperature being considerably ,
above the sleeping point.—Some one
threw out the remark that there was not
probably a single Cass man on board.
Immediately a voice exclaimed, "I am for
Cass." Another from a distant berth
chimed in, "I too." Still another mut
tered, j"And here's a Cass man," till
twelve were counted for the great
Michigander. The tiling was all explained
in the morning—that outrageous ventril
oquist, Winchell, was aboard ! Although
refusing to vote once for Cass by daylight,
lie confessed to the twelve votes of the
preceding evening.— Rochester American m
The Dead Sea .—Our explorers have
finished their undertaking, aud are on
their way home. We shall soon know
whether they have plumbed Sodom and
Gomorrah. An English Lieutenant,
Moleiieux, of the Spartan frigate, made
an exploration, last September, of the
Dead Sea. Having arrived at what was
thought the deepest water, soundings
were obtained at 225 fathoms; the arming
of the lead was clear, with some pieces of
of rock salt attached to it. Two other
casts of the lead were taken at different
times: one gave 178, the second 183
fathoms, with bluish mud or clay. The
water has an obnoxious smell, and is
greasy and unpleasant to the touch. Iron
was corroded by it, and looked as if
covered with tar. No fish or any- living
thing was found in the water. Lieuts.
Lynch and Dale state that they caught
fish, and that they found birds in their
experiment. The Dead Sea, however, is
singularly deep, showing that it must
have beeu a volcano.
Stopped .—The Indiana Patriot, pub
lished at Greencastle, lindiana, stopped a
few days agp with the following valedic
"We thint there is- no printer, who .
was ever in this place any length of time,
but what would as soow go to sea on a
shingle, chase a streak of lightning
thro' a crabapple orchard, dip the Mis
sissippi dry with a gourd, dam up the wa
ters of the Niagara, or set the Pacific on
fire with a match, as to attempt to estab
lish a permanent paper in this place. The
idea b pieposterous."
