JMHRiSOMAiN - REPUBLICAN.
4 TFaMy Paper, lo be published at Strouds
- Iurgt Monroe County, Pa., and Milford,
Pike County, Pa., simultaneously.
''The whole art of Government consists In the ar
of being honest. Jefferson.
THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
in principle, will be all its title purports, tho rirm
and unwavering advocate of the principles and
doctrines of the democratic party, delineated by
the illustrious Jefferson : the right oi the peo
pie to think) to speak, and to act, independent
ly, on all subjects, holding themselves respon
sible to no power for the Iree exercise ol this
right, but their God, their Country, and her
Laws, which they themselves have created.
A free and untrammeled Press, conducted in a
spirit worthy of our institutions, is a public bles
sing, a safeguard to the Constitution under which
-we live, and it should be cherished and support
ed by every true republican. Such, then, it is
designed to make the paper now estab
lished, and as such, the publisher calls up
the enlightened citizens of Monroe and Pik to
aid him in this laudable enterprise. The time
lias arrived when the Press should take a bold
and faarless stand against the evidently increas
ing moral and political degeneracy of the day,
and endeavor, by a fair, candid, and honorable
course,' to remove those barriers whioh section
al prejudices, party spirit, and party animosity
have reared to mar the social relations of men
without accomplishing any paramount good.
THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
will not seek to lead or follow any faction, or to
advocate and support the schemes of any par
ticular set of men. It will speak independent
ly on all Stale and National questions, award
ing Jo each that support which Us merits may
demand, never hesitating, however, to condemn
such measures, as in the opinion of the editor is
justlr warranted, holding as a first principle :
" The greatest good to the greatest number."
Believing that the great principles of democ
racy are disregarded by the present Chief Ma
gistrate of the Nation, Martin Yan Bvren,
the JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN, will
decidedly, but honorably oppose his re-election
to the high and responsible station which he
It Avill firmly oppose the " Independent Trea
sury" Scheme, and all other schemes having
for their object the concentration in the hands
of one man, and that man the President of the
Nation, all power over the public moneys, &
power, which, when combined with that vest
ed in him by the Constitution as Commander-
ln-Gmef of the American forces, Military and
Naval, together with an enormous official pa
tronage, would render him more powerful than
the Executive of the British Nation, and in
short make our Government, de facto an Elec
tive Monarchy. J
It will ever maintain that the welfare of our
Country and the preservation of her Republican
Institutions should be the first and only senti
ments of our hearts in the choice of our public
servants ; that honesty, fidelity, and capability,
arc the only true tests of merit; that all men
are created equal, and, therefore, should alike
enjoy the privileges conferred on them by the
Constitution without being subject to proscrip
tion, or coerced bv the influence of partv.
The columns' of the JEFFERSONIAN
REPUBLICAN will ever be open to the free
discussion of all political questions, believing
as we do, that there is no liberty where both
sides may not be heard, and where one portion
of freemen are denied the privilege of declar
ing their sentiments through the medium of the
Pross, because they differ from the majority.
The JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
will ever lake a lively interest in the affairs of
Monroe and Pike, and of the Senatorial and
Congressional Districts with which they
The Farmer, the Merchant, the Mechanic, !
and the Laborer, will each find a friend in the
columns of the JEFFERSONIAN REPUB
LICAN. Due care will be taken to furnish its
readers with the latest Foreign and Domestic
News, and such Miscellaneous reading tis will
he both interesting and instructive. In short it
is designed to make the paper worth' of an ex
tensive patronage, both from the strictly moral
tone which it will ever possess, and the efforts
of the editor to make it a good and useful
The JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
will be printed on a super-royal sheet of good
quality, and with good type.

New Volume commenced icilh the Nov. Number.
A Circulation of 20,000.
THE Ladies' Companion, established in May,
1831 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 May,
the demand for the Ladies1 Companion has been
unprecedented and beyond the most sanguine
anticipations. 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 more than gratified
in stating that the whole of an edition of six thou
sand, five 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 Ladies' Companion
eight thousand five hundred, at the termination' of
the tenth volume. Jn 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
disappointed in commencing with the tenth vol
ume. The proprietor feels grateful for that en
couragement which has been so lavishly bestowed
upon his magazine, and at the tame time he begs
to assure the readers of the Ladies' Companion,
that it is determined resolution to meej it yitti' a
corresponding liberality to merit its continuance:
The work appears in beautiful new type,-printed
on the finest paper; smoothly pressed, and' neatly
stitched in a handsome cover.
The Ladies' Companion contains a larger quan
tity of reading than any other magazine .issued in
in this country, and its subscriptioifmce.Ts only
three dollars a year, while the great combination
of talent secured for the coining year will render
it unequalled by any other periodical r
Splendid Sleel Engravings, prepared by Mr. A.
Dick, ornament the work otie of .which accompa
nies each number. These plates are entirely new, i
and are engraved at a heavy expense by one ol the
best arstists in America, expressly for the maga
zine. The designs are selected with a -view of 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 monthly periodicals, are generally fir3tworn
out in annuals. In addition to the engravings
mentioned, a correct plate of the Quarterly Fash
ions for Ladies, will appear in the June, Septem
ber, December, and March numbers, independent
of the usual embellishment. It is the determina
tion of the proprietor, that these fashion plates
shall appear in a style hitherto unknown. It lite
rary character will undergo no change, as it will
remain under the charge of the same Editors as
heretofore. Articles from the pens of the most
distinguished writers, will appear in the forthconv
ing numbers, among which may be enumerated tho
following: Mrs. Holland, Emma C. Embury,
Lvdia II. Sigoumey, trances a. Usgood,
E'llet, Caroline Orne, Seba Smith, Ann S. Stevens,

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 tho La
dies, whom the publisher is anxious to please. It
will continue to be a subject of more 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 of music.
Tae Work in General. Of every department an
equally careful supervision will be strictly exer
cised by the Editors, and all appropriate expendi
tures will be liberally bestowed, as it is the de
sign of the publisher, with the aid of his contribu
tors and the advice of his friends 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 picj
toral embellishments, and the accuracy of its quar
terly fashions. The proprietor pledges himself to
use all honorable means to maintainthe superiori
ty which the Ladies' Companion has obtained.
For five years he has steadily pursued a course of
improvement, and he flatters himself that his pre
sent facilities are such as to give the work eminent
advantages over ali other publications.
From the foregoing it will be perceived that the
Ladies' Companion embraces every department
within the rango of Belles-Lettres and the Fine
Arts: and no exertions or expense will be deemed
too great to render 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 tho Ladies' Companion to the support of
the public generally. There is no work that give

" Public Opinion from whose decision there is nof
.appeal,-has been so often and so loudly manifested
in favor of BRANDRETH'S VEGETABLE U
NIYERSAL PILLS, that it is not surprising there
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
cle, and palm it off on the unsuspecting public as
the genuine medicine, from the result of which so
many happy results have been accrued to humani
ty. It is painful to think that an inestimable good
should bo product of direct and immediate evil
but so it is.
The very excellence of BrandrctWs Vegetable
Uniccsal Pills, has in some respects., opened a spe
sies of higlt-way through which cupidity and ava
rice carry on their depredations without check &
notwithstanding thejre'quency of exposure alrea
dy made notwithstanding the indelible disgrace
which has been heaped upon conntcrfeit druggists
notwithstanding the large amount oi human suffer
ing which has. been the consequence ol this impo
sition and fraud, druggists continue to carry on
this revolting1 traffic ; "and counterfeits 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 punisK
ment. can entirely nut it down, it becomes mv im
perative duty again and again to caution trie public
against purchasing pills of a druggist, professing
to be Brandreih's Pills for as under no circum
stances is any of this class made an Agertt, it' fol
lows of course that the Pills sold at such places
professing to be Brandreths Pills are universally
base counterfeits, highly injurious to the heaith of
the People. .
