party at the late election for delegates to the Con-

' greatest victories of principle upon record, turning
principally upon the election of all ojicert by the

" else, - It turned "principally' upon the question

"cipation, while the IiOcofoces "went it strong" for
the perpetuity of the "glorious Institution,"
Hence the 'advantage the latter gained : in the

WHIGS,
The candidates of your choice are before you,
and the result remains for you to determine.
Will you not do all you can ? If you will they will
be elected. Come out in vour whole strength, and
you will be victorious; if you do not certain de
feat awaits you.
Saiiufl Treat, the man of your selection for
Representative to Congress, is a good man and
true. You have known him for years, and wher
ever placed he was found equal for any emergency.
We appeal to you; do, for the credit of this dis
trict, if not for your own honor and dignity, send
no such man as Amos E. Wood to Washington to
represent you in the Genend Government You
want your western rivers and harbors improved
you want slavery abolished in the District of Co
lumbiayou -want slavery excluded from our new
territories you also want the administration con
ducted in a more- economical manner, and Samuel
Treat is the man who will use every endeavor to
accomplish these ends; and Amos E. Wood, will
make every attempt within his reach to frustrate
them. 7
- Isaag Vas Doren, is an independen candidate
for Representative, and the Whig Convention rec
ommended him to the support of he people of the
county, and therefore made no nomination for this
office. Speaking for ourself, we say : We shall
vote for Mr.- Van Doren, in preference to Wilson.
We believe that he understands the interests and
wants of the people best, and that be will will stand
by the Ranking and Tax Laws, which Wilson is
pledged to oppose.
Charles G. Gueese, for Sheriff, will poll a
strong vote, and make a niost excellent officer; he
is also amply qualified to discharge the duties of
Sheriff with credit to the county and honor to him
self. -
Andrew Clark, as Recorder, would, we are
satisfied from our personal knowledge of the man,
make as good and worthy a public servant as the
county ever had. And with
Jambs Moore, for Commissioner, where is the
man to find one word of complaint ? A worthier
man could not be found in the county, and we
would rejoice to see him elected.
The other candidates we are not personally ac
quainted with, but know that they are good Whigs,
and are all of them qualified for the offices to which
they are nominated
If you will commit the interests of this commu
nity to these men, we are satisfied you will have no
c tuse for regret
Vermont.
We learn from the Washington Republic that
full returns have been received from Vermont
which give Coolidge (Whig) a majority of 33 for
governor, and showing a whig gain of 6,224 votes.
The senate stands 22 whigs, 7 free soil, and 1 dem
ocrt; and the house 130 whigs, 81 free soil, and
1 2 democeats. The whig majority on joint ballot
is 51, and the nett whig gain 48 members of the
legislature.
General Taylor received 23,122 votes in Ver
mont last November; Coolidge, whig governor, 23,
125 in .September. This year Gov. Coolidge has
over 26,500 votes over 3,000 increase on Gen.
Taylors vote. . Is this one of the proofs of the un
popularity of the cabinet ? or of the people's disgust
at Gen. Taylor's violations of his pledges, of which
we hear so much?
Ilave Yoo Considered,
The importance of one vote ? ONE vote may
decide the contest It may cither elect or defeat
the whig candidates. Let not one then be lost,
but, forward, to the rescue and if you should be
defeated, you can say with heartfelt satisfaction,
'the fault is "not with ma, I have done my whole
duty.'
Locofoco Secession in Seneca County.
; The Huron Reflector says that a portion of the
Seneca Loccofocos seceded from the party, refus
ing to support the re-election of Breslin as repre
sentative, and called a convention for nominating
another candidate. They published an address to
the Loco Foco voters of the county, charging him
with corrupt intrigue with Townshend and Morse,
in voting for Chase and the repeal of the black
laws with ingratitude to friends, and divers oth
matters. The vote of Breslin, for the repeal of
the black laws, was like that of his colleagues, a
mercantile transaction, and his friends think it
should not be viewed outside of the ledger. The
address is said to have been framed by the famous
Col. B. B. Taylor, the Loco Foco pet lawyer, states
man, author, editor and play-actor of the nineteenth
century, and is written with ability. Taylor has
resided at Tiffin since he quit the boards, in the
capacity of a gentleman-lawyer, despising prac
tice. He has now left for Kentucky, to edit an
anti-emancipation paper there, followed by the an
thems of the Ohio Statesman and Loco Foco press.
whose especial darling he was, when state senator
from Licking and editor of the Western Democratic
Review. Iruly, these Loco .tocos are a precious
brotherhood !
The convention of bolters was held accordingly,
on the 22d ult, and a new candidate was nomina
ted for representative, who at first declined the
doubtful honor awarded him by the black law gen
tlemen. He afterwards accepted the nomination
made ; but it is not very likely that it will defeat
Breslim
We would like to. see a good anti-slavery inde
pendent or Whig, elected in his place, but we con
fess no sympathy for the black law faction- which
denounces him. Mr. Breslin, in the office of speak
er of the house at the last session, disgraced his
constituents and dishonored the body over which
he presided. . We allude not only to his infamous
co-partnership with Towshend and Morse, but to
the successful attempt which he boasts of having
made, to defeat a regular election for certain Judg
es, in joint convention of the two houses, by fraud
ulent and disorderly conduct on the part of him
self and his colleagues. This ought to consign
him to political oblivion, in the estimation of any
enlightened, just and patriotic constituency. The
State Journal rehearses this miserable effort of
Breslin, as follows :
It appears that by joint resolution of both houses,
the members entered upon the discharge of that
duty, on Saturday, the 3d day of March last, when
it was discovered that one of the members, (viz.
Mr. Larimer, of Perry county, had presumed to ex
ercise his own judgment ia relation to two or three
persons to be voted for, instead of enacting the au
tomaton and voting as his leaders should dictate.
This was most assuredly very flagicious conduct on
the part of Mr. Larimer! It teas undoubtedly,
quite unexpected at his hands; and must be coun
teracted by some means. How shall this be done?
That is the question. And Mr. Speaker Breslin has
solved it it was done by raising "a Fuss, and by
Double Uallotino 111 -
In this way was the time of one hundred and six
members, together with their officers and servants,
trifled away,, until the Whigs, disgusted with the
scene and wearied with its repetition, were at length
'compelled ' to assent to an adjournment !
Having achieved this triumph as the fruit of Sat
urday's labors, the Honorable Speaker deliberately
sits himself down on Sunday, to cheer his political
cronies with an account of the feat His epistle is
in this wise :
Columbus, March 4, 1849.
Dear Sir: We had another election yesterday,
and elected four Democratic Judges.
We would have elected 12, but Larimer of Per
ry, bolted and voted with the Whigs. As soon as
we discovered this, we raised a FUSS bv points
op order, &c, and bv DOUBLE BALLOTING,
defeated an election every ballot. We kept
up the confusion for three hours and then compel
led the Whigs lo adjourn until 10 o'clock to-mor-
Rcmcmbcr that the Locofocos,
Are determined to destroy the present good and
wholesome Banking system of onr state. It is a
thorn in their side ; for under its influence the
credit of the state has vast ly improved, and the
farmer has now a paper currency which he can
safely lay up knowing it will be good to morrow,
next week or next year. Remember then, if the
Locofocos get the power, you will have instead of
good red bach, State Bank, a whole progeny of
wild cat institutions fastened upon you, and be
flooded with a mass of worthies s shinplasters from
other states.
And Also Remember,
That this pure Democratic party which holds that
it can do nothing wrong, say the present Tax Law
of this state shall be repealed, that it must be swept
from the statute books, because forsooth Sam Me-
dary don't like it, and if Samuel don't like it cer
tainly his minions must do his bidding and not
like it too.
Whigs! if yon have any intention
Of absenting yourselves from the polls on Tues
day next, just take from your pockets a 'Five Dol
lar' note on some one of the Locofoco, wild-cat, 'in
dividual liability' institutions, and compare it with
one of the Five's issued by the State Bank ; they
will each tell their own story, and speak in a lan
guage which can be understood by all. One reads,
'individual liability,' (which is a humbug) and the
other 'secured by the pledge of public stocks.
Which, now, would you prefer ? If you wish to
have 'individual liability, just stay from the polls,
say nothing to neighbor of the importance of the
election, and you can be accommodated to your
heart's content, for, say the Locofocos, 'We are re
solved to do all in our power, to effect a repel aof
the Banking Law,' 'by an everlasting and eternal
ANNIHILATION of the same! But if you pre
fer good paper 'secured by the pledge of state
stocks, vote for Isaac Van Doren and not for Eber
Wilson. You see the two currencies. Which will
vou have ? Choose ! Decide !
The following article from the Chilicotbe
Gazette we have read with A great deal of pleas
ure, and it does indeed inspire ns with new and
stronger hopes of the triumph of law and order
over the disgraceful proceedings of last winter.
What citizen of this great state, who loves its best
interests, does not feel that he himself is disgraced,
by the transactions of the rebellioniste of last ses
sion ? Let such men then arouse themselves and
through the ballot-box give a rebuke which will be
a lasting and effectual check to their future villain
ous concoctions. No one, we think, can read the
article without feeling as we do, that there is hope:
We observe that many of our contemporaries
anticipate trouble and disorder, to mark the attempt
to organize the Legislature next winter. In other
states, as well as in this, tae press is mdulg
ings disagreeable foreboding on in the subject The
Philadelphia North American, for example, says:
"The Ohio Rebellion of last year will, no doubt,
be enacted over again at the eusuing session of
the Legislature, if the Locofocos and Free Soilers
should succeed in obtaining any thing approaching
to the majority of the members."
We confess, that we, for a long time, were of a
like opinion. The central influences which have
long lorded it over the heritage of Lbcofocoism,
were all set that way: the energies of the parties
to the currupt coalition of last winter were bent
upon proaucing sucn results as wouia agnm dis
grace the next season. It is man's province, how
ever, "to propose"- & higher Power "disposes."
No doubt the disposition, in the breasts of law
breakers and peace-disturbers of the State, to
indulge their unhallowed proclivities, is as strong
as ever; but in the working of the party mach
inery, the time came about in which their consti
tuents had "some to say" in the matter. We see,
therefore, that the bargain, to which "the balance
of power," of the Freesoil faction, of the one part
and Medary and leading Locofocos in the Legis
lature, ' of the other part, were the contractors,
is repudiated by the rank and-file ; so that;schisms
of a serious and appearently, irremediable kind
have been made in the Locofoco-abolition party.
The prospect is, therefore, that a considerable
number of the Locofoco members are to be
returned to the next General Assembly, will con
sider themselves instructed not to touch or callude
with that unclean thing political abolitionism.
Again : it is well known and universally admitted
that the occasion of the dirgraceful scenes of last
winter, was the coalation which war entered into
and so successfully carried out by the parties
above-mentionedei It was "nominated in the
bond" thut Pugh and Pierce should be admitted
and Spencer and Runyan excluded ; that such-and-such
men should be made Speakers and Clerks ;
that so-and-so should be elect'd to the generalships
and judgeships that they now severally occupy;
that, at all risks the bargain should be carried out
to the letter, in defiance of public opinion, the
laws of the State and contracts and made in good
faith under them. But we much mistake, if
next winter the material in the shape of men.orthe
excuses, in the from perjured partisan clerks, will
be present to carry but again the nefarious procee
dings of the late session.
Things look far better in Hamilton county, than
they did at this time a twelvemonth ago. The "in
dependent Democratic" Sheriff of that county
who was elected last fall in opposition to a re
volution, has issued his proclamation in conformity
with law. There seems to be a determination
among- the judges of the election in Cinncinati
to reject all ballots having on them the names ot
more men for the .Legislature tnan there are mem
bers allowed by the Apportionment Act The
death of Brough and the appointmont of Hart
too, is sufficiently admonitory to the infamous
"Clerk Roll" to regard the law, this year, or ex
pect a removal from the omce he has disgraced.
For these reason, therefore, we look for a backing
out bv the Locofocos of Hamilton county, from
the treasonable position that they asumed, last
year, and threaten this under the evil counsel of
the editor of Statesman Spalding, Whitemam, their
confedates in sedition.
We look for a Whig majority in the Legis
lature and, jvere it necessary, . we could give
reasons, plenty as blackbertes. for the expectation.
Suffice it to say here, "the sober second thought
of the People, always right," will bring about
this result Mark the production: ine cons

Freemen of Sandusky County,
Bear in mind that Anios E. Wood, notwjth
standing all the smooth things he may say) is a
progressive locofoco, and like his master , Lewist
Cass, is opposed to all measures of internal improve
ment if you vote for him, and he be elected, you
need not be disappointed if he, (as he certainly
will) opposes these measures which he how so loud
ly advocates. He will have to do as his party bid
him and take their word for his rule of action..
The same convention which nominated him en
dorsed the Baltimore Resolutions, declaring etern
al hostility to 'a corrupting tyntem of general intern
al improvements,' and he, Amos E. Wood, to catch
votes says he is in favor of improving the Sandus
ky and Maumee rivers. Who believes it! Is there
not we ask, a strange incongruity of opinion here?
He says he is in favor of this Baltimore Platform
the next moment he avows his opposition to it!
How consistent!
Remember then, that it is one of the cardinal
principles of the locfoco creed to oppose, ever, all
measures of internal improvements, and herein,
their opinions, like the law of the Medes and Per
sians altercth not . . ..
;.- Bear in Mind Also, : ; :
That in voting for Eber Wilson the locofoco can
didate to the next legiseature,' you will sustain the
revolutionary acts, concocted by the leaders of the
Dorrite party last winter ; who for .three weeks
unconstitutionally kept possession of the halls of
legislation. Sam Medary would like no better fun
than to make a cue for every such "Dimicrat" that
may be sent to Columbus this winter. , But we
trust their are voters enough who hold to the prin
ciples of virtue and honor, to send a man to the leg
islature, who has a mind of his own, and will act
independent of such reckless demagogues.
Are Ton All Ready! .
Have you done all that you can? Has every
voter been addressed personally ? ' Are nil your
neighbors anxious for . the contest between princi
ple and the schemes of mad-cap intriguers, who are
seeking by every unjust and unholy means, to de
feat the cause of justice and of truth ? Are such
arrangenents made, that not one Whig voter shall
be absent from the polls? If yott have not done
all this; lose nothing by delay. It is by prompt
united, individual efforts and individual votes, that
the triumph of principle is to be attained. We re
peat it are you all ready?
Vote Early.
Let every Whig who can, be at the polls early.
and as soon as he has depostited his vote, let him
see to getting out all Whig voters who may be ab
sent; if they are not there by 12 o'clock, let him
make it bis special business to bring them there.
If every Whig will thus exert himself, doing his
whole duty, the Whig candidates will be elected
by handsome majorities, and Wood and Wilson,
with all their bright anticipations may stay at home
and mourn over the ingratitude of their fellow citi
zens. . ' . "'

he calls Madame Poussin. He called with her at

President's family. ' An attache of the mission has
another woman that he calls his wife. The opinion
at Washington is that neither are married, ir'resi

did not invite the women. M. Poussins took this
in dudgeon, and vented his spleen in bis diplomatic

MOST EXTRAORDINARY MEDICAL WORK.
Being a Treatise upou the Science of Uroscopia, or tha
manner of designating Disease bv a examination of tha

Gottenged, Germany, Uanslated by M. B, Wiener,
Uriscopeau Physician of New York, with notes and
additions adapted to American practice. Over 400 pa

TtlF above la one of the most Important medical works
.ever offered to the world, beiug the first publication
upon the intricate and mysterious Science of Uriscopia.
This science has for ages been hitherto Kept by the favor
ed few ill the strictest secrery, and only imparled to oth
ers under the firmest obligations and enorinoaa sums for
the information, conveyed. ' This wore: enables every
one, of hou'ever limited means, to secure the peculiar
secrets of this mysterious science. '
The Uriscdplan system has for ajes maintained a pop
ularity surpassing all oilier theories of medicine by n.eaua
of its universal succesain the treatment of Chrouie Dis-
..... an.) this n.n.Lrilr t H a t i ti m r! n lii m-wfmAA k
hundredfold by its future greatmes.' " -
The system- has been practiced by the most eminent
pHj siciaue far the last four hundred years, and its follon
eta are steadily and firmly advancing, until at the present
time it is practiced with the greatest success in Germany,
France, Austria, Russia, England and generally tbro'out
the European Kingdoms, ia some parts of Asiaand a few
practitioners are found jn this country. .
The necessity of a work open this intricate and myste
rious sciedce has been Jong .apparent. The celebrated
Dr. Oldenburgh has been many years engaged iu prepar
ing this highly finished volume. His labor bava bean
abuudantly rewarded, three thousand -volume having
been disputed of in Europe in six months.. Another edi
tion having beeu called for, ha been prepared and trans
lated by Dr. Wiemer and is now ready to be delivered to
purchasers ia limited amounts. ' The superiority of this
system over alt others iu the treatment ofchronic diseas
es, has been fully tested in thousands of instances, sad
it only becomes necessary to obtain a correct Knowledge
of the science to extend that superiority to the treatment
of all diseases. Uriscopian Physicians in - fl cooutrie,
have invariably secured tbe most Unbounded notoriety
and popularity, by means of the general success attend
ing the system. "
To the" young practitioner, this system Is parricolarry
desirable as it immediately ushers him Into a practica
that would lake year cf loll and labor to obtain upon any
other system and perhaps never to be acquired at all. T
the old physician the system ia equally valuable, a it ex
empt him from the dally toil of a visit to each of hi p
tients who may be miles distant.
In this wore the appearance of ths urine is given In
two hundred and eight diseases, with engravings repre
senting the appearauce, form, color, sediment, shade,
tinge, &e., of every disease. Also a aynopsis of the Uri
scopian system of treatment, adapted to American prac
tice. Any person of good natural and acquired abilities
may gain a sufficient nowledge of the system to practice
with Bt'ccess in from six to nine month. , Regularly ed
