When one of the Marshals for taking the cen
sus in the adjoining county was engaged in the
extra work imposed upon him of finding out and
noting down, the politics of the different voters,
he asked a gentleman in a certain township how
the majority would be in the township in which
he lived. He replied that it would bo largely
for Van Buren. Well content, the Marshal went
to the next house, where he knew resided an
intimate personal friend and he supposed a po
litical friend of the person he had just left. He
made the same inquiry as to whom the majori
ty of the votes would be given in the coining
election, when he was surprised to hear in reply
that it would be given for Harrison. Why, said
the Marshal, there appears to be quite a differ
ence of opinion betweetvyou and your nearest
neighbor. Yes, replied the gentleman there al
ways has been; during the last war, when the
Indians and British were murdering our pion
eers and early settlers, burning their houses,
and stealing their horses, I shouldered my gun
and joined the North Western army under Gen.
Harrison; but my neighbor ran off to Ohio, and
remained there until the war was over, and peace
and perfect security restored. About the same
difference exists between us yet. Indiana
Not quite over. While we were going to
our dinner on Wednesday, wo saw several
boys, about 10 years of age, making log cabins
with chalk upon the fence. As we were pas
sing them, one of them turned up his face to
wards us and exclaimed " Hurrah for Van
Harrison !" " But why do you say Van Har
rison, my little man ?" quoth we. " Oh never
mind," said he "father has got so far over, and
I am following inhis footsteps we shall leave
the Van off by to-morrow, 1 reckon." Louis
How it works The Standard, a Van Bu
ren morning paper, recently established in N.
York, states that " tens of thousands of me
chanics are now in idleness." So much for
the "return to prosperity" under the Sub-treasury
law. A government bankrupt and 44 tens
of thousands of mechanics out of employment,"
are two small specimens of the gloriousefTects
of Mr. Van Buren's policy.
Irish Generosity. A letter from
Ohio saj-s: "It is a fact worthy of
remark, that, hot as politics are in
this part of the country, the personal
and military character of Gen. Hari
rison is let alone. Here, as else
where, they began with 'coward' and
'the grany but it worked fatally
for the users of these words. The
rule now of the Administration elec
tioneered is to say as little as possible
about G eneral Harrison, and as much
as possible about General Jackson.
As indicative of the spirit hereabout,
I was curiously struck by some anec
dotes of an Irishman in a county near
here, who is a Van Buren man, but
who served with General Harrison at
the Thames and elsewhere. "When
any of his political friends call Gen
eral Harrison a coward,' he thrashes
them without the least ceremony, un
less thej' take it back, and say they
are sorry, and the consequence has
been, that he has had some half doz
en hard fights ; so that the probabili
ty is his own party will beat him
into Harrisonism before the election

BRAitfJRETJa'S VEGETABLE UIX
Cleanse aaid Purify ttie Body.
. AN AMERICAN SUMMER,
The Weather and its effects. One dav we have
90 degrees of heat in the shade: the next 50. Thus
one day the perspiration is streaming from every
pore : the next day all are nearly closed. Even
those who have a healthy disposition of body, are
subject to siekness under these circumstances.
Therefore to prevent any danger, we ought care
fully to guard against a UOSTIVJS STATlfi UF
OUll BOWELS. Once or twice they must be
evacuated in 21 hours. If this is not effected
naturally, medicine must be resorted to BRAN
DRETH'S PILLS must be taken : then there wil
be no dancer. Do not think that even a daily use
of these Pills will weaken or debilitate They do
not. On the contrary, the functions' of the stomach
are restored, the bowels cleansed and strengthen
ed ; the appetite and digestion improved. And
common sense tells us we are better able to with
stand continued heat, or sudden changes than we
should be, were we oppressed by a load of impure
humors in the blood, always theoccasfon of every
variety of disorder. Often a sudden dysentery
occurs. Should there be a cause for this, and it
does not take place, then, the blood is made the
receiver of those humors, which should have been
discharged by the bowels. Under these circum
stances, which may be known by exceeding drow
siness, and great fatigue on the least exertion,
vegetable purging must be immediately and ener
getically practised, or these humors form a lining
or deposite in the blood vessels which may pro
duce epilepsy, apoplexy, consumption, &c &c.
It must be, however, borne in mind that even in
dysentery and disorders of the bowels, that BRAN
DETH'S PILLS are indispensable. They re
move those peceant humors which produce these
'affections, before they have time to produce gan
grene or any other latal effect.
Sometimes the blood is so loaded with humors
that it becomes in a fermentation, being that state
of the body cnlled fever, which is nothing more
than an effort of nature io throw off all offending
matters. This is, in fact, a call upon Reason, to
assist the natural functions with purging medicine,
which, if properly answered, will soon evacuate
these foul humors, and restore the body to a state
of perfect health.
It is at all times easier to prevent than to cUr'c
disease, because by taking a preventive couse we
do not debilitate the natural functions of the body,
but rather strengthen- and assist them. Tho pe
culiar actipri of
Brandreilis Vegetable Universal Pills,
is to cleanse the blood from all impuriiles, remove
every cause of pain or weakness, and
PRESERVE THE CONSTITUTION
in such a state of health and vigor so that casual
changes cannot effect it.
