The following Resolutions were read by Wa.
8. Price, Esq., of Philadeiphis, from the main
stand, and unanimously adopted :
I. Resolved, 'fhat the Whigs of the U.
States, here assembled by their represen
tatives. heartily ratify the neminatios of
Gen. TAYLOR as President, and Muo
LARD FILLMORE,- as Viee President
of the U. States, and pledge dietneelvell
to their support.
2 Resolved, That, in the choice of Gen.
Tavioa as the Whig candidate for Presi•
dens. we are glad to discover sympathy
with a great popularsentiment throughout
the nation—a sentiment which, having its
origin in admiratimof great military sue
eem, has been atiWithentid by the devel
opensent, in every aetion and every word,
around conservative opinions and of true
fidelity to the great examples of termer
days, and to the principles of the Consti
tution as administered by its founders. •
3. Resolved, That Gen. TAYLOR, in
saying that, bad he voted in 1844, he
Would have voted the Whig ticket, gives
us the assurance (and no better is needed
from a consistent and truthrmeaking man)
that his heart was with us at the crisis of
political destiny, when Ilsreav CLAY was
our candidate, and When not only Whig
principles were well defined and clearly
asserted. but Whig measures depended on
success. The heart that was with us then
is with us now, and we have a soldier's
word of honor and a life of public and pri
vate virtue as the security.
4. Resolved, That we look to Gen.
Taylor's administration of the Govern
ment as one conducive to Peace, Prosper
ity, and Union. Of Peace—because no
one better knows, or has greater reason to
deplore what he has seen sadly on the field
of victory, horror, of war, and especially
of a foreign and aggressive war. Of Pros
perity—now more than ever needed to re
lieve the nation from a burden of debt and
to restore industry—agricultural, manufac
turing and commercial—to its accustomed
and peaceful functions and influences. Of
Union—because we have a candidate whose
very position as a South-western man,
reared on the banks of that great stream
whose tributaries, natural and artificial, em
brace the whole Union, makes the protec
tion of the interests of the whole country
his first trust, and whose varied duties in
past life have been rendered. not on the
soil or under the flag of any State or any
section, but over the whole frontier and
tinder the broad banner of the nation.
5. Resolved, That, standing as the Whig
party does on the broad and firm platform
of the constitution, braced tip by all its in
violable and sacred guaranties and com
promises, and cherished in the affections;
because protective of the interests of the
people, we are proud to have, as the expo
nent of our opinions, one who is pledged
to construe it by the wise and generous
rules which Washington applied toil, and
who has said (and no Whig desires any
other assurance) that lie will make Wash
ington's administration the model of his
9. Resolved, That, as Whigs and Amer
icans we are proud to acknowledge our
gratitude for the great military services,
which, beginnig at Palo Alto and ending at
Buena Vista, first awaked the American
people to a just estimate of low who is THE WHIG NOMINEES.—In obedience to

following resolution', which, alter able and elo
' quent addresses by D. M'Com•tronx and D. M.
Serum, Eels, were unanimously adopted:
The campaign of 1848 is begun. The
hero "who never surrenders," is, by the
voice of the nation, the Captain of the
Whig army of the United States. The
youthful hero of Ibrt Harrison—the con
queror at Okeechobee—the victor of Palo
Hesaca de la -Pahna, and Monterey
—the hardy veteran who, at Buena Vista,
breasted the overwhelming tide of su
perior numbers, and chained victory to his
car—has been, by the assembled wisdom
of the Whigs ol the nation, presented to
the people of the United States, as a candi
date for the office of President, and it is now
for that people, w horn lie has so often elect, i
tied by his victories, to respond to the appeal
thus made to their a ffectionategratiple.
We, a portion of that people, confiding
in the wisdom and better information of
that Convection, have filet to join in this
response—to manifest our purpose of uni
ting our efforts with those of our fellow
citizens elsewhere, to elevate • Old Rough
and heady" to the first office in the peo
ple's gill—and to express our determina
tion too seek the attaiment of this purpose
only in the use of fair and honorable MeallS.
Success achieved on any other terms would
be joyless to him, and unworthy of
We collie, too, to lay on the altar of our
country's good, all our former differences
of opinion and personal preferences and
predilections. There are those amongst
us, whose first choice would have been
the venerable sage of Ashland, or the glo
ry-crowned Conqueror of Mexico ; but
the National. Convention has otherwise
decided, and we bow to their choice, and
recognize, in the war-worn chieftain they
have chosen, a man worthy our support,
of our gratitude, of our affection. Often
and severely as he has been tried he has
always proved equal to every emergency.
Events have developed the Roman sim
plicity and energy of his character, in all
its massive proportions. Modest and un
assuming, never courting notice VW pre
ferment, his march to glory has been on
ward and inevitable as the course of des
tiny. Events could not create, they only
developed his greatness. Unshaken firm
ness, honesty of purpose,.elear judgment
and decisive action, are the leading traits
in his character; and to such a min we
feel that the destinies. of the country May
be safely confided. In MILLAfRD FILL
MORE, the nominee for the Vice Presi
dency, the people have presented to them
a candidate every way worthy of their
confidence and support. Wise and pru
dent in council, long experienced in the
legislative councils of the nation, and pos
sessing the unlimited esteem and regard
of the people of New York, he will bring
to the discharge of his duties everey that
rable qualification. Of sound and well
tried political faith and integrity, the pee.
ple need entertain no fears of finding in
him a Judas or a Tyler, should the duties
of President, by the ordinition of Dltrine
Providence, devolve upon MM. Of pure
and blameless morale ' he is an ornament to
society; and in him, the Senate of the U.
States would find a presiding officer wor
thy of its dignity and high reputation.—
Therefore be it

was the swelling, that she was unable to sleep
more than half an boar at a time, without being
compelled to insert the finger in her throat and
opening it, for the purpose of breathing. I hail
tried every thing that was recommended, and
employed Physicians both here and In Baltimore.

only by applying the lance, but she would not
consent,) and it contibued in that state-until her

and after using four bottles,her throat is almost
entirely cured. No one could scarcely believe
the benefit derived from using it. but those who
saw the state in which her throat was before

There are several persona, known to your agent,

READ AND UNDERSTAND,
ill HE PRINCIPLE OF LIFE, that subtle
and invisible priciple which animaters the
human frame, and whose seat is in the blood, is
one of the most impenetrable secrets ot the Crea
tor. We cannot comprehend his principle, but
we know that it is in the blood. for it we or..

draw all the blood from the body, that lire ceas

can be no mistake upon this subject ; so we must
then be also convinced that anytning which im
pedes the circulation of the blood must depress
or bear down the principle ot Life, and make the
body subject to receive injury from the principle
of corruptibility implanted 'nth* human frame.
We cannot deny it. There is in every created
being • principle of corruptibility, as well as a
principle of animation. It is when this corrupt
ibility becomes too powerful for the lora Pain
crime or Blood, that disease commences. It is
not because it does exist, but because it„tiecomes

Thus we see that in the same body is the
principle of life and also of corruptibility. And
it is only by due attention in some bodies that

would overpower the principle ot lite. before the
individual had reached to the full period at his
existence, recording to the principle ochre with•
in him. For, on order that nun should arrive at
that period of life called old age, a µedict balance
must exist between the principle of late and the.
principle of corruptibility. When the balance
lie in favor of this principle of We, we observe the
energy of character with admiration. And 1
have no doubt that just in proportion as the life
principle predominates is the erstrgy both of
body and mind. By the inie.of-proper medicine
this can always be secured until a good old age.
The principle of corniptinn is subject to the
influence of many causes of vitiat ion. It is, there.
fore, necessary that we be provided with ample
means to prevent injury•from it; or in tonsil
pence of this venation that putridity would be
produced which would destroy the individual ere
he had arrived at that period. of life which he
would have done from the principle of life which

prevent an accumulation of those humors which.
bear down the principle of lite. Do not wait for
