ESTIMATE OF HARRISON BY THE
WINESSES OF HIS DEEDS.
The following trihute of praise
was paid to General Harrison in
1811, by 11 of the officers who
fought under his banner at the
battle of Tippecanoe :
uShould our country again re
quire our services to oppose a civ
ilized or savage foe, we should
march under General Harrison

Utility in the cure and prevention of disease, it
is of the utniost consequence to as certatn what
medicine iscapable of producing the effect de

the most effectual manner, It has no longer
to contend with the blind prejudices of the
public ; it is only with those lew who are .still

like the people of old, " who would have" a
" King to reign over them." But, thanks to
the circulation of newspapers thanks to the
general diffusion of knowledge, which enables
nineteen twentieths of the PEOPLE to read
and judge for themselves now we no longer
believe in swallowing that d eadly mineral,
Mercury professing to cure, but uuiversally lea

We no loUger believe in the absurd notion
that Inflamations of any kind can be cured by
abstracting our life OUR BLOOD, it is now
understood that an Inilaination is a wise ordi
nance of Nature a signal that she requires the
assistance of purgative medicine to ease her
of the oppressive burden, which she proves by
the high fever and the strong pulse, is wanted
to be removed. In other words, the body calls
for a VEGETABLE CLEANSING.
Brandreth's Vegetable Universal Pills require
skill in their administration ; the printed direc
tions only have to be observed and they des
cribe the just proportion of the dose to the
magnitude of the disease to be cured.
Let all persons read the following opinion of
a gentleman who well knows the quality of
these Pills :
T!5 ftiedicine is acknowlegcd to be one of
the most valuable over discovered, as a Purifi
er of the Blood and Fluids. It is superior to
Sarsaparilla, whether as sudorific or alterative.
It stands infinitely before all the preparations
or combinations of Mercurv. Its Puraative
powers alone are of incalculable value : for

New Volume commenced with the May Number.
X HE Ladies' Companion, established in May,
1834 a popular and highly esteemed magazine of
General Literature and the Fine Arts; embellish
with gorgeous and costly engravings on steel, and
the Quarterly fashions ; and also with Fashiona
ble and popular Music, arranged for the Piano
Forte, and Guitar.
Since the publication of the number for Novem
ber, the demand for the Ladies' Companion has
been unprecedented and beyond the most sanguine
anticipr-. tions. At the commencement of the vol
ume an additional number of copies were printed,
which was considered at the time adequate to sa
tisfy all the orders which might be received, and
leave a considerable number on hand for subse
quent calls. The publisher is mere than gratified
in stating that the whole of an edition of six thou
sand, live hundred copies, was completely exhaus
ted before the issuing of the third number of the
volume; and, consequently he was compelled to
reprint a second edition of two thousand copies,
making the circulation of the Ladies1 Companion
eight thousand live hundred, at the termination of
the tenth volume, fn consequence of this great
and unparalleled increase of new subscribers, he
has determined to commence the new volume for
the ensuing year with thirteen thousand : hoping
that he will thus be enabled to supply all the de
mands for the Ladies' Companion, as well as those
uisappointed in commencing with the tenth vol
umsv The proprietor feels grateful fur that en
couragement which has been so lavishly bestowed
upon his magazine, aud at the same time he boa
to assure the readers of the Ladies' Companion,
that it is determined resolution to meet it with a
corresponding lit.eralhy to merit its continuance.
The work appears m beautiful new type, printed
on the finest paper ; smoothly pressed, and neatly
studied in a handsome cover.
The Ladies' Companion contains a larger quan
tity of readinc than anv other magazine issued in
! m tins country, and its subscription prire is only
three dollars a year, while the great combination
of talent secured fur the coming year will render
it unequalled by any other periodical.
SvletidiJ Sieel Ens ravines, prepared by Mr. A.
Dick, ornament the work one of which accompa
nies each number. Ihese plates are entirely new,
and are engraved at a heavy expense by one of the
best arstists in America, expressly for the maga
zine. The designs are selected with a view oi in
teresting the general reader, and enhancing the
value of the work, for its superior pictoral embel
lishments. It is with pride the proprietor announ
ces that the Ladies' Companion is the only maga
zine published, in which new and elegant steel
plates appear regularly. Those accompanying
other month" y periodicals, are generally first worn
out in annuals. In addition to the engravings
mentioned, a correct plate of the Quarterly Fash
ions for I.adier,t will appear in the June, Septem
ber, Decern er, and March numbers, ind-pendent
of the usual embellishment, -xit-is the dtieniiiiin
tion cf the proprietor, that these fashion plates
si. all appear in a style hitherto unknown. It lite

remain under the charge of the same Editors as
heretofore. Articles from the pens of the most
distinguished writers, will appear in the forthcom

Pcblic Opinion from whose decision there is no
appeal, has been so often and so loudly manifested
in favor of BRANDRETH'S VEGETABLE U
NIYERSAL PILLS, that it isnotsurprisingthere
should be found in almost every city, town, and
village in the United States, persons so depraved
at heart, and so utterly devoid of the principal of
moral rectitude, as to manufacture a spurious arti
clc, and palm it off on the unsuspecting public as
the genuine medicine, from the result cf which so
many happy lesults have been accrued to humani
ty. It is painful to think that an inestimable good
should be product of direct and immediate evil
but so it is.
The very excellence of BrandrclWs Vegetable
Univcsal Pills, has in some respects,, opened a spe-
sies ol high-way through whicn cupidity and ava
rice carry on their depredations without check &
notwithstanding the lrequency of exposure alrea
dy made notwithstanding the indelible disgrace
which has been heaped upon connterleit drupgist-s-notwithstanding
the large amount of human suffer
ing which has been the consequence of this hnpo-
suion ana irauu, aruggists continue to carry on
this revolting tralnc ; ana counterleits are as nu
merous and as varied in the market, as if no de
nunciation had ever been made, and public indig
nation never been expressed.
Since, however, this destructive evil still exists,
and neither the fear of God, nor of earthly punish
ment, can entirely put it down, it becomes my im
perative duly again and again to caution the public
against purchasing pills of a druggist, professing
to be Brandreth's Pills for as under no circum
stances is any of this class made an Agent, it fol
lows ol course that the J'lljs sold at such places
professing to be Brandreths Pills are universally
base counterfeits, highly injurious to the health of
K? Established Agents for the Genuine Bran
drellfs Vegetable Universal Pills, are Invariably

X2BANDRETII, M. 5. in my own hand
writing. This certificate is renewed every year
and when over twelve months old, it no longer
guarantees the genuineness of the medicine. It
would be well, therefore for purchasers carefully
to examine the certificate, the seal of which is neat
ly embossed onthe paper, in order at least that the
safeguard of fmposition may not at least be suscep
tible of imitation.

The Musical Department of the Ladies' Compa
nion has ever commanded a large share of atten
tion, and has been looked upon with no little in
terest by its readers, and more especially the La
dies, whom the publisher is anxious to please. It
will continue to be a subject of moie than usual
care to him, and to the Professor under whose su
pervision it is placed, to make that portion of the
magazine deserving of the countenance of every
lover ol music.
Tac Work in General. Of every department an
equally careful supervision will be strictly exer
cised by the Editors, and all appropriate cxp nd
tirres v. ill be liberally bestowed, as it is the do
sign of the publisher, with the aid of his contribu
tors and the auvice ol his mends to make the La
dies Companion distinguished for the beauty and
accuracy of its typography, the variety and high
tone of its literary articles, the quality and value
of its music, and the unequal splendor of its pic
toral embellishments, and the accuracy of its quar
terly fashions. 1 he proprietor pledges himself to
use all honorable means to maintain the superiori
ty which the Ladies' Companion has obtained.-
For live years he Ins steadily pursued a course of
improvement, and he flatters himselt that his pre
sent facilities are such as to give the work eminent
advantages over alt other publications.
From the foregoing it will be perceived that the
Ladies' Companion embraces every department
within the range of Belles-Lettres and the 1 1
Arts : and no exertions or expense wiil be deemed
too great to rendqr the work equal to any other
extant. The flattering and general testimonials
of nearly every contemporary journal in the United
States, and in fact, many on the other side of the
Atlantic, have strongly asserted the undeniable
claims of the Ladies' Companion to the support ol
the public generally. There is no work that giver
its readers such a great return for their money.
