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. 1 have recom mended it to several of my friends, and in all cases with success. Yours, dear sir, with respect. a a is Yours, dear sir, with respect. J. E. BRISCOE, Clerk for T. L. White, 53 Canal st. Residence, 24 Maria street, New Orleans STILL THEY COME! 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 mote 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. JAMES REESE, 13 Camp st., New Orleans; Mobile , December 7th, 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 me, and I am now able to at tend to my daily avocation of a boatman. JOHN WILLIAMS.

About his being in favor of the Wilmot proviso in 1846. About his professing to be against it in 1848, About his aristocratic conduct in France. About his advocating internal improve ments by the General Government. About his being the candidate of a party strongly opposed to internal im provements. About his vote of censure upon Gen. Taylor for acceding to the capitulation of Monterey, a capitulation agreed upon by Col. Ht-ndersoo, Gen. Worth and Col. Davis, all leading Democrats. About his voting for the appointmeut of a Lieuteuant Geueral to supercede Tay lor aud Scott—a proposition hissed down by the people. About his being like Van Buren, w a Northern man with Southern principles" starting in life opposed to slavery—shift ing his position in middle age—likely to follow the example of Mr. Van Buren : in his "sere and yellow leaf." About his making the p2ople pay for ' his pleasure excursion to Egypt. About his making the same people pdy'. ; him one huudred thousand dollars as extra pay, while he was receiving a large salary. D About his saying the Whigs did not believe the people capable of self govern ment—an accusation which Gèn. Cass knew to be false when he made it. About his organs—the Michigan Sen ators—voting for the Wilmot Proviso. About his monstrous and despotic de claration in the Senate, that "Congress cau neitheir give the President the power to carry on the War, nor control that War!" About his unmanly course towards Gen. Harrison, acquiescing in slanders upon the old man during life and praising him after his death. " w About his advocating a system of finance which establishes a currency ft» gold and silver for the office holders and paper money for the people—a system by which the office holders get a premium upon their salaries, while the people are compelled to submit to a discount upon the paltry pay they receive for the produce of their farms and workshops. A T ough Y akn.—There is a place in Maine so rocky, that wheu the Down. Easters plant corn, they look tor crevices in the rocks, and shoot the grains.in..withe a inusket; they can't raisedticks there• no how for the stones are so thick that the ducks can't get their bills hetween them to pick up the grasshoppers, and the only way the sheep can get at the ^sprigs .of grass is by grinding their noses on a grind stone. But that ain't a circumstance to a place on the Eastern Shore, Maryland*— there the land is so poor that it takes two kildeas to say "kildeal," and on a clear day yon can see the grasshoppers climb up a mullen stalk, and look with tears in < their eyes over a fifty acre field: and the bumble bees have to go down on their knees to get at the grass; all the musquitoes died of starvation, and the turkey buz* zards had to emigrate. But there is a county in Virginia which can beat that-—there the land is so sterile that when the wind is at the northwest they have to tie the children to keep them from being blown away; there it takes six frogs to see a man, and when the dogs bark the have to lean »gainst the fences; the-horses are so thin that it takes twelve of them to make a shadow, and when they kill a beef they have to hold him up to hnock him down!" Work and be independent.
