RUP OF SARSAPARILLA— For the
cure of rheumatism, scrofulous affections, diseases
of the skin, and eruptions of Various kinds. It is a
powerful tonic and alterative, and is valuable as a
restorative in depraved conditions of the system,
though its most extensive and useful application is
in the treatment of secondary syphilis, and syphi

which follows the imprudent use of mercury in
these affections. Forsale by

More Home Testimony in Favor of
DR. SHERMAN'S ALL-HEALING BALSAM.
Nf.w 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. 1 have recom
mended it to several of my friends, and in all cases
with success.
Yours, dear sir, with respect.

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.

ft? 3 What will the Whigs have to talk
about now?— Union
They will talk about Gen. Cass's law
to whip and sell white men and women.
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.
