We particularly request the editor of the Gazate
to read the above quotation calmly and soberly,
and we then think he will not boast so much as
he did in his paper of yesterday; in regard to the
result of the electien in this county.
T/1E RAIN ow Trisin.ty put some of our
friends in good spirits for a while, and they "laid
the flattering 'unction to their souls," that . the
Whigs would not' turn out to the polls for fear of
soilingand wetting their.fine coats! Prom what
we observed on that day, we are now perfectly gat•
isfied that gross injustice has been done the Whig
party in making such a charge against, them !.We
saw no ""dry weather patriots" among them, and
they were busy from morning till night taking
conveyances, after the sick, the lame,. the halt and
the blind l We move that tliat charge against the
Whigs be honorably retracted! •

The Drama in Paris.—A letter from Paris,
speaking of the press, says: " The only literary
trade thartlourishes, out of the plea the newspa
per press, is that.of the dramatist. Each time that
a vaudeville is performed, the Manager pays ten
per cent. to the author on the profits, even when
performed in villages and in barns, the playwright
derives two or three francs profits. At the Acade
mie de Musique, the director pays•loo:francs per
act of a-grand opera every night it is performed,
and, as lyrical operas are generally in five acts,
authors thus:get £2O a night. A society is estab
lished, with agents all over France, for the collec
tion of these dues, deriving for their pay two per
cent 011 the amount collected; and even secondary
vaudervilists, totally unknown to fame, receive
from £lOOO to £2OOO a year, for dues derived
from their humble productions."
Maine.—The Portland Advertiser, whig; of Fri•
day says bf the refliesentative trials, "The• returns
as yet are not sufficient to determine the political
character orthe house. There is still no choice in
a larger number of districts than was 'expected,
considering the interest felt in the course of the
Mon*snsx,'Mr.Ziee, Sept. 25,.1846:
GEkrixisstr: The city has capitulated' on the
following terms: The. Meicicsn soldiers . shall be
permitted to march out of town with their small
arms and six small field pieces,
leaving all their
munitions of war behind, with all their artillery
and- : public , stores. They are to retire to_Linares,
sixty miles hence, and about thirty, miles north of
Saltillo, and sire not to approach nearer than that
to this place within sixty days; or Mail each party
Can hear from its respectiVe government. ;Ampti;
dia kept General Taylor until nearly midnight last
night preparing the terms, 8:c. 'Many persons,
particularly the Tixan volunteers who fought so
bravely, are displeased at these terms. The town
was alt but in our hands, and they believe could
have been taken in three hours I believe that
it would have requred much more-hard fighting to
have taken it, but this was not the question with
Geu, Taylor., Ile and all his officers knew perfect
ly well, of course, that the town could soon be ta
ken, but he wanted no prisoners to take up his time
and eat his substance, but he did have an object in ,
view which will be reached by terms-of this capit
ulation, and that object will lead to a result Most
beneficial • to our government, under whose advice
or-orders General Taylor acted iu agreeing to these
terms. .21. - o.ha.ve a few moments to spare before
the expressigpes out this morning (lie was detain
ed last night by the slow progress of business with
Ampudia) I will speak of the operations of Gen.,
Taylor on his side of the town.
Major Mansfield, of the engineers, reconnoitred
the enemy's works on the night of the 19th, but
could obtain no very accurate information, al
though tie approached very near to some of them on
the heights. On the 20th Licht. Scarritt and Lieut.
Pope were sent out to reconnoitre the works; Scar
, ritt on the right and Pope on the. left of the town.
The latter approached and discovered the poSition
of a battery on the extreme left, and was exposed
to a fire of cannon ande musketry from lancers,
from which; after finishing his observations, he re-
tired in safety. On the right,of the 20th the [nor-'
tar and howitzer batteries were placed in is posi-i
tion to play on the strong holds of the citadel .-1
The action commenced on the morning of the 21st,;
by the openifig, of these two batteries. Col. Gar-1
land's brigade were ordered to move to the left for
the - purpose of storming the battery discovered by!
Lisut: Pope the day before, and to occupy, if-possi
ble, the lower part of the city. Major Mansfield,
Capt. Williams, and Lieut. Pope were ordered in
advance to select the most available point of at
and to direct the movements of the column I
upon it. These companies were thrown forward
as skirmishera and advanced rapidly towards thel
works, followed by the brigade in line of battle un
der a cross fire of artillery from the citadel and :
fort, and a heavy fire of musketry. The column
charged into a street 200 yards to the right of tho,
battery, passed the vvork entirely, and effected an
entrance to the town. After advancing rapidly
about 400 yards beyond the battery, they earns im
in front of a masked battery of artillery
and musketry, which swept the street completely
by its range. The barricades of the streets at six
ty yards distance from the head of the column,
were lined wirlr Mexican troops, who, entirely cov-1
ered themselves, opened a murderous diseharre ofd
grape and musketry upon the advancing co lumn. I
Every house in the street was pierced for musket
ry, and enfiladed the street in every direction: Un
der this fire the following officers were killed , or
mortally wounded: Major Barbour; 3d infantry, by
grape shot in the abdomen; Captain Williams, To
pogTaphical engineers, shot through the body by a
musket ball, felt in the street, and was dragged in
to the doorway of a house,_by Lieutenant Pope
amidst a shower of balls,Ahat covered him with
dust. The gallantry of this young officer, now in
his first battle, is spoken of in admiration by the
army. Captain Williams died the next day, and I
was hurried with the honors of was by the texi. ,
can troops, into whose hands he had fallen. Lien ,
tenant Terrett, Ist infantry, shot through the body,
died the next day.
Wounded.—Major Mansfield, bail through car
of the leg. This brave officer would not leave on

account of his wound, but rode althut, behaving in
the most . gallant manner all day. Captain Bain
bridge, 3dinf.intry, eliehily wounded in the hand;
Major Lear, dangerously wounded in the mouth,
the ball passing out at the back of his head; Major
Abercrombie, Ist infantry, severely wounded; Lieu
tenant R. Graham, dill infantry, severely wounded
in both legs and body. Hopei: arc entertained of
his recovery. A great number of men killed arid
wounded—number not known.
It 'being impossible, in the opinion of the engi
neer, officers, to 'efiWt anything in attaeiting the
barricades in front, the column moved rapidly up
a street to the right, with the intention of turning
them. Being reinforced by the Ohio regimen', a
second charge was made under the direction of
General Butler, chick, owing to the tremendous
fire of musketry and grape from the barricades and
store houses. likewise proved effectual. The'
troops were then ordered by General Taylor to re-'
tire in good order and get under cover from the!
enemy's fire; winch order wai handsomely execus!
The following officers were 1:11:ei or mortally
wounded (since died) in the Second charge, Colo
nel Watson, of the Baltimore battalion; Capt. L.
N. Morris, 3d infantry; Lieut.l.f. Irwin. 3d infant
1-,y; Lieut. It. Ilazlitt, 4th infantry. Three officers
were killed in the first which I did not include in
that list, viz: Livid: Hoskens. 3d infantry, Lieut.
J. S. Woods, 4th infantry; Capt. Field, 3d, infantry.
— Titibiricd.—Major Gen. Butler, slightly, through
the calrof the leg; Co!. Mitchell in the leg; Capt.
Larnotto, let infancy, slightly; Lieut. Dillworth, let
infantry, leg shot off.
During the enmenient in town of Garland's
brigade, the forts that were pasted on the left in
entering the town, were gallantly carried by the
Tennessee and Mississippi regiments—the first
commiunled by Col. Campbell, and second by,Col.
Davis. Lieut. Cu!. McClung, of the MissisSippl
regiment, was dangerously wounded: These regi
ments sustained a great loss, of killed and wound
ed, but I cannot in the short time left me, ascer
tain the names or numbprof those who fell, Capt.
Brags battery of light artillery was brought into
action, but it was impossible to use it effectively,
itl was withdrawn. Several pieces_ , of artillery
were captured. The forts that were taken were
ockupied by Ridgely's light artillery company,
who turned the captured pieces against the Alexi
call works, and the cannonade was kept up the test
of the day. There were many skirmishes, and
gallant deeds, &c., which I will mention at a fu
'On the night of the 22c1 the enemy abandoned
the two works Which had proved so destructive to
the 3d and 4th infantry, and they were occupied
early next morning by the Mississippi and Ten
nessee regiments, under (;en Quitman.' AboUt 8
o'clock, same morning, these two regiments advan
ced on the town, and a sharp engagement com
menced. These regiments were supported by a
body of Texan Rangers, (dismounted for the occa
sion,) under Gen. ilenderson, and by the 3d regi
ment of infantry. The fight was kept up until 4
during which time our troops drove
the enemy from house to house, almost to the main
plaza. The loss on.sour side was not severe during
this day. On the morning of the 2.4 th, -a flag of
truce was sent in which resulted in the capitula
tion of the town.
During the whole . of the engagement on the2lst,
Col. Kinney was exceedingly useful in carrying or
ders. and in giving advice in matters with which
his thorough acquaintazice with Mexican customs
rendered him familiar. He was in the thickest of
the fight, moving about from point to point, and
doing good execution with his rifle. This gentle
man's services have been invaluable to Gen. Tay .
for in the movements of the army from Matamo
ras to this place. He has been everywhere; recon
noitering the country, and procuring information—
riding night and day, and exposing his life in a
thousand ways. The colonel never flinched from
any duty required of him, and, had Gen. 'Taylor
ordered him to go and bring , him Ampudia's port
folio's, he would have undertaken it. I devote a
paragraph to a mention of this gentleman's servi
ces, because he deserves much from the public, for
whom he has labored so - arduously and so

On the morning of the 24th (half-past 11 o'clock)
Gen. Ampudia sent Col. Moreno to Gen. Taylor
with a proposition which Gen, Taylor_would not
accept. He (Gen. A.) Wanted to March out with
a libi s men; arms, ammunition, Sec., Gen. 'A. then
requested an - interview in Person ; which Gen. T.
granted, and they discoursed until about halfpast

last 'and final proposition, and' told him be would
give him one hour to answer—lefore the hour was
up the answer was returned that Gen. Ampudia
accepted the terms proposed by Gen. Taylor, which
were in substance these: The Mexipan army to
evacuate the city, and it to be delivered up to the
Americans. They should march out, with their
muskets, and twenty rounds of cartridges, and six
pieces of cannon. That the Mexican force should
not appear this side of aline from ilinconada, run

SEN ATOR CAMERON
A: democratic convention of Northumberland
county ildopted a resolution, on the 7th ult., nomi
nitiug, Simon Cameron, esq., one of the senators of
Cie United States, as a candidath for the gubernato
rill chair in 1847., On recei,ini this resolution
from the committee appointed thr that purpose, Mr.!
C. declined the honor. He tells them:
"I.! feel greatly flattered with this compliment,
coming from the county which presented the great
and good Snyder to the Democracy of Pennsylvania,
and conveyed to me, as. it is, by genilernen who
have! iinx.rn 'me from my earliest toysliood.—
Whether in private or in public life, every good
en in, must be gratified with evidences of friendship
from: those who know him best; and nothing could
be More grateful to:rny feelings than this compli
ment from that steady, unwavering Democratic
•'• The chief magistiacy of this great Common•
wea4ll is a post which the ablest end proudest
citizen might be glad to occupy. It should be the
highest honor of the faithful public olTicer;•to be
carried with him into retirement, as the reward of
his services. I feel that I have no claim to it;
and having recently been eleviit4l to a high place
mainly to aid in the protectioh of the interests of
my native State, I could not; in accordance with
my Sense of propriety, desert That pout, while those
interests are in danger, for anypersonal distinction,
high. or honorable as it might be.
" 1 beg you, thereore, gentlemen, to convey to
the /democracy of Northumberland my gratitude
for their kindness, and my respectful declination of]
the nomination. For yourselves, receive the assu-i
ranee of my continued friendship.

Clieknce's Sugar-eaated Vegetable Pills.--All dis
eases. have their origin in impurity of blood. How
ever excellent the general health, there is nti secu
rity against fever, where thisblood is impure, as in
dicated by eruptions of the skin, vertigo, head
ache lassitude, Sc. The best purifier of the blood
is diekner's Sugar-coated Pill, which is so skilful,
ly compounded, that it does not cause griping, the
great] ohlection to all pills. The envelope of suer
prevents ull nausea, so that, save from theie,power
lel, yet easy operation, thi patient would hardly
be aware that he had taken any medicine at all.
So well convinced is Dr. Clickner of the efficacy
of hit pills in all specified cases, that be is pledg

Is not produced.

DR. CHRISTIE'S GALVANIC RINGS'ANDMAG-
!THIS remarkable invention, which has received
the universal approbation' of the medical piofeii;
sion of Great Britain, Comprises an" entirely new ap
plication of Galvanism, as a remedial agent, by means
of Which the ordinary Galvanic Batteries, Electric
and Magnetic Machines, &e., are entirely dispensed
with, and the mysterious power otGalvanism applied.
without any of the objections winch are inseparable
from the general mode now in use.. The strong dos
es, and irregular intervals, in which.Galvanismis ap
plied by the Machines, has been pronounced, after a
fair and impartial trial, to be deeidedly injurious, and
it was to remedy this radical defect that this new ap.,
plication was projected, which, after unceasing tetti
and perseverance, has been brought:to -its present
state of perfection. The Galvanic Rings answer all
the purposes of the most oxknsive hlachines; and
in many other respects are, mere safe and cerletinill:
accomplishing the desired effect. .
The Galvanic Rings used in connection with the
Magnetic Fluid, are confidently recommended'in all
disorders which arisefrom an enfeeblectand unhealllist
state ofthe nervous or vilal system, , and these cent
plaints pre among the most painful and universal to
which we are subject. They arise, without exception,
froth one simple cause—d derangement of the Ner
vous System—and it was in these cases that other, -
(remedies' having so often failed, a new agent was
greatly needed, which it is confidently believed, has
been found in the proper and Judicious appliwition
of Galvanism. .
The Galvanic Rings have been used "with entire
success in all cases of RILECTMATISn, acute or chronic,
applying to the head, face oriimbs, Gout, - Tlc-Dblo-•
xeur, Toothache, Bmlnchitis, Vertigo, Nsivous.Siek
Headache, Indigestion, Paralysis, lsy, Epilepsy,
Fits; Cramp, Iktipitatioas if the Hearl, Apoplexy,
Stiffness of Joints, Spinal _Complainti, Ltintbago,
Neuralgia, Nervous • Tremont, Dizziness of the Head,
painin the Chest and Side, General De.bility,-Deficien
cy. of .Nervous and Physical Energy,! andel/ NERV-:
OUS DISORDERS,- In cases ofconfirmed Dyspepsia',
which is simply a nervous derangement of thp (Liget.'
tive organs, licy have been found equally minces - Stu'.
Their extraordinary- effects upon thii system'must be
witnessed to be believed, and as a certain preventive
for the preceding complaints they are equally repel-,
mended. The Rings- are of different prices, being
made ()fall sizes, and of various ornamental patterns,
and can-be worn I.iy the most delicate female without
the *lightest inconvenience. In fact, the sensation
is rather aE:roeable than lotherwisp.
The Gal - ranle Belts' s,
Garters, Neeklaces, - „
In some cases of a. very, severe character,.
long standing, the power as applied by the Galvanic
Rings is ads sufficient to arrest the progress pf diseastr
and ultimately restore health. ~ The improved "modi- 1
fication in the Galvanic Belts, Bracelets, 'entir_e
ly remedies this objection; any degree Of pow W - t -hat
is required can readily be obtained, and no complaint
which the mysterious agent of Galvanism can effect
will fail to be permanently relieved. These articles
are adapted to the waists, arms,-wrists,limbs, armies,
or any part oT th.e body, with perfect convenience..
The Galyanie w Necklaces arc used - with Treater belie: -
fit in cases of Bronchitis or - affections of the throat
generally; also in cases of Nervous Deafness; And
with-almost uniform success as a preventive for Apo,
plexj , , Epileptic Fits, and similar. complaints. -
is used in connection with the Galvanic Rings ands
all their modifications. This cOmposition has been
pronounced by the French Chemists to be one . ofthe j "
most extraordinary discoveries of modern* science. It
is believed to possess :the. - remarkable Power of. ran:-
Bering the nerves sensitive to galvanic-action by this
means causing a concentration of the influence,atthe
aeat of disease, thus giving, rapid and permanent re;
lief. No other composition in chemistry is known to
produce., the same - effect, or to impart a similar Pio:.
perty to the nervous 4 - stem, by means of an outward
local application. The Magnetic Fluid contains nosh=
rag capable of the slightest injury; its application is
agreeable, and it is as. harmless in its action as it. is
beneficial in its results, Full explanations and direc
tions accompany The combined inventions are in
every ,wa y perfectly harmless; they are said at prices
within the' reach, of all and - the discoverer .only..re
quests a fair trial as "a test 'of their surprising efficacy
nd permanent benefit. „ .

These articles farm another. valuable.
of the mysterious influence ofGalrehism, They are
anlinportant adjunct to the genuine Galvanic Rings
rend their modifications, acting upciithe same princi.;
ple, but having the advantage of more local applica
tion. They are confidently recommended as a valu
able addition in the speedy cure ofßheurnatism;acnte
or chronic; in all nervous complaints, and as a posi
tive remedy in cases of Pain-end Weakness - 'in the
Chest or Back, Painiii the Side, in. Asmatis Affections,
and in Weakness or Omression of the Pulmonary.,.Gr
guns. - In. Spinal Complaints their effects are of the
most decided character, and they have often been
used with complete success. They are aka of the
greateist advantage in Pains and Weakness of the
Breast,and are highly recommended for many of those
complaints to which females are especially liable. As
an effectual means for strengthening the'system:when
debilitated with disease or other causes; as a certain
aid in Constitutional .Weakness, as s, Preventive of.
Colds, and in all affections of the Chest, generally,
the Galianic Strengthening Plaster will be foubor of
great and permanent advantage. - In - a few-wOrdn; it
embraces all the virtues of the best tonic preparation,
with the important addition of the galvanic influence,
which is neither impaired nor exhatisted, ;while the
actioneontinues. These articles will be found entire
ly free from those objeCtions which are a constant
source of complaint with .the ordinary plasters in.
