Canadian Vermifuge.
fpHE best remedy ever yet discovered
for all kinds of WORMS. It not only destroys
Worms and invigorates the whole system, but it
dissolves and carries off the superabundant slime 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 the body. It is
harmless ill its effects on the systein.atid the health
of the patient is always improved by its use, even
when no worms are discovered ; the medicine being
palatable, no child will refuse to tako it, not even
tho most delicate.

Mort Home Testimony in Furor of
Nrw Orleans . 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
me 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
with success.
Yours, dear sir, with respect.
Clerk for T. L. White, 53 Canal st.
Residence,24 Maria street. New Oileans
Having accidentally become acquainted with the
j virtues 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 the best curatives
extant, for Consumption, Dyspepsia and other dis
eases arising from a disorganized state of the stom
ach and affections of the lungs.

I hereby certify, that for 18 months 1 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 me, and I am now able to at
tend to my daily avocation of a boatman.

Gen. Taylor's Address.
The following was the reply of Gen.
Taylor to the address of the Hon. John
Henderson, at the Barbecue at Pass
Christian. Sept. 23, 1S48:
It is with emotions of no ordinary em
barrassments, Mr. Speaker, that I find
myself called upon to respond to the cor
dial reception with which I have just been
met by the authorities of Pass Christian
and the citizens of Harrison county. I
cannot, indeed, expect to do justice to the
occasion, aud feel especially less able to
offer in adequate terms my acknowledg
ments for the very flattering language in
which this greeting has been tendered by
the talented citizen who lias just addressed
me. I can only, therefore, offer you my
warmest thanks, and assure you that the
style of tny receptiou here is particularly
grateful to my feelings. This simple and
repjbücan manner of meeting my fellow
citizens carries me back to the pleasant
scenes of my early life. I was reared
from infancy to early manhood iu the
West—among men of primitive tastes
and republican simplicity. We there
frequently met on occasions like this, to
exchange freely our opinions on National
and State affairs, and to devise measures
for the defence of our borders, which at
that day the General Government was
sometimes unable to protect. On these
occasions were often collected, too, those
men of lion hearts and iron nerves who
had notonly aided the FatherofourCoun
try in achieving our independence, stood
by his side iu many of his hard-fought bat.
ties, bnt who afterwards filled, with honor
to our country, conspicuous places in our
legislative bodies, both National and State.
I have been educated in the simple and re
publican habits so happi'y illustrated in
this scene, and do not expect to change
them in my old days. You will understand
me when I assure you again, that the man
ner of my reception here is more agreea
ble to my feelings and taste than could be
all the pomp and pageantry of a reception
at the most splendid Court of Europe.
The complimentary language in which
you have been pleased to allude to my
military services, which now embrace a
period of more than forty years, and es
pecially to the actions in which I have
been engaged during that time, commen
cing with the defence of Fort Harrison,
in 1812, and ending with the battle of
Buena Vista, has awakened in me the
most grateful emotions. I feel particularly
gratified at the just tribute of praise which
you have paid, in speaking of these ser
vices, to the gallant men whom I comman
ded on those occasions, and to whom I feel
deeply indepted for success. I claim no
thing save the good fortune of being the
leader of such men on the occasions refer
red to; and to their zeal in sustaining me,
and to their bold hearts and strong arms,
are we iudebted for our victories. The
manner in which you have alluded to my
peing stripped of my troops on thé Rio
Grande, and to my being left, as it might
seem, at the mercy of the enemy, just be
fore the battle of Buena Vista, renders it
proper, probably, that I should make a
few remarks in relation to that matter. I
received at Victoria, while on my way to
Tampico —a movement which I had ad
vised the War Department I should make,
for certain reasons—an order from the
General in Chief of the army, stripping me
of the greater portion of my command,
and particularly of regular troops and vol
unteers well instructed. This order was
received by me with much surprise, and,
I must confess, produced the strongest
feeling of regret, mortification and disap
pointment, as I knew that Gen. Santa
Anna was within striking distance of my
line, with an atmy of 25,000, probably
the best appointed men ever collected in
Mexico. Afer putting most of my troops
at Victoria en route for Tampico —the
larger portion of the commands at Mon
terey and Saltillo having been already
withdrawn for the same ultimate desti
nation—I was instructed to return to the
former place, where it was expected I
would remain on the defensive, with the
small force then under my orders. A few
days after reaching that point I learned
that the greatest alarm prevailed among
the advance at Saltillo, in consequence of
the capture at Encarnacion of Majors Bor
land and Gaines, with their party of about
eighty picked men from the Arkansas and
Kentucky cavalry—followed a few days
afterwards by the capture of a detachment
of picked men under Capt. Heady, also ot
the Kentucky cavalry.
About the same time I received a com
munication from Gen. Wool, then com
manding at Saltillo, urging me to join
him with all the troops at my disposal,
stating that Gen. Santa Anna was at least
preparing, if he was not already en route,
to strike a blow at Saltillo! I immediately
joined Gen. Wool with 700 or 800 men,
and a few days afterwards concentrated
all the troops, which were generally en
camped by regiments, and took my po
sition at Agua Nueva, in order that all
the officers might become better acquaint
ed with each other and their duty, and
that generally a more thorough system of
discipline and instruction could be adopted
to prepare all hands for service. While
h^re, I was advised by the War Depart
ment and the General-in Chief to occupy
Monterey. This advice I believed then,
as I do now, was given at hazard, and iu
ignorance of my situation, of that of the
enemy, and of the country. I declined to
adopt it, and determined to fight the Mexi
can General immediately after he crossed
the desert country, which lay just in my
front; and before he could have time to '
refresh and reorganize, his army, I knew
would be much worn out and disordered
by a march of 150 miles across this des
ert without sufficient provisions and aup
plies, and with a great scarcity of water.
In this determination, so far as I know, I
was most cordially sustained by the offi
cers of my command. About two weeks
after taking my position at Agua Nueva, it
was ascertained by my advanced partie*
that Santa Anna was at hand with his ar
my. We then fell back to Buena Vista,
a ranch some six miles in front of Saltillo,
where we took up a strong position, and
where we could easily communicate with
our depot in the latter place. Upon this
ground I determined to give battle. The
enemy arrived in our front on the morning
of the22d, and summoned meto surender
at discretion about 1 o'clock of the same
day. The summons was declined, and
about 4 o'clock on that day the battle of
Buena Vista commenced. The result of
that affair is known to you all and I shall
not, therefore, trouble you with its details.
All tried to discharge theit duty to their
country on that occasion, and some even
did more than their duty. It would then
perhaps be invidious to draw comparisons,
but I must be permitted to say that, led on
by their diStigguished commander, the
gallant Mississippi Volunteers, of whom
you have just spoken so highly and so
justly, performed well their part. They
were the only volunteers with me who
had met the enemy before— having acted
as would became veteran troops in the
conflicts about Monterey. I therefore
calculated mnch upou their assistance on
that eventful day, and I am happy here to
say that my expectations were fully reali
zed. Their ranks thinned by the enemy*«
bullets are much more conclusive as to
their good conduct than anything that I '
could now say.
The battle of Buena Vista, under (he
circumstances under which it was fought,
was one of the most trying occasions in
which a soldiercan be placed. I may say
indeed that I fought that battle with a
halter about my neck. I had been ad
vised to fall back and occupy Monterey,
which, as before stated, I declined, and
had I been unsuccessful, this advice would
have been brought up in judgement
against me. I declined that advice because
I believed the result would have been
disastrous as a defeat. Had I fallen back
to Monterey, the whole country about B&t
upon which I was greatly dependent
for forage, would have flown tp arms.
Once confined in Monterey, the volunteer*
to say nothing of the effects of the retreat
upon them, would have become fickly and
dispirited, and deprived of all means of
obtaining supplies and particularly forage,
