ADAM SHAFER. Stroud tsp. Oct. 16, 1810. Col. Johnson said (in Congress") "Who is General Harrison? The son of one of ihe signers of the Declaration of Indepencence; who spent the greater part of his large fortune in redeeming the pledge he then gave, of his 'fortune, life and sacred honor,' to secure the liberties of his country. Of the career ttf General Harrison 1 need not speak; the history of the West is his his tory. For forty years he has been identified wiih its interests, its peiils and its hopes. Universal ly beloved in the walks of peace, and distinguish o"fl V,v hie nViilitv in ihp munHs nf his countrv. he nas been yet more illustriously distinguished in the field. During the late war, he was longer in active service than any other general officer ; he was, perhaps, oftener in action than any one of -jhem, and never sustained a defeat" We give on the first page instead of our usual Historical sketches, tne excellent speecn delivered by General Harrison at tne great Convention in Dayton, Ohio, on the 10th of September last. The enemies ot iteiorm wno nave siancerea mat vene rable patriot, by asserting that he preserved a stud ied silence, when requested to declare his- senti ments on measures of public policy, that he was General "Mum" and was in charge of a "thinkine committee," now begin to chango their tune and complain of his having shaken the "gag" from his lips to spread before the peopl views of gov ernment. Yerily these Loco-focos are exceeding ly hard to please! We beseech our fellow-citizens of all parties to read this speech with attention. Gen. Harrison has solemnly pledged himself be fore heaven and earth in the presence of one hun dred thousand of his countrymen, that in the event of his election, He will serve but one TEaM. He will use all his efforts to abridge the power -of the President. He will not permit the interference of office-hol-ders in elections. He will nevertheless not prevent their casting their vote, against himself and his measures if "they choose. He will not appoint his successor. He will m allow the world to know who his fa vourite is- He will not continue the war against Credit. He will not continue the war against Commerce. He will not favor an exclusive specie currency humbug, and He will consult the good of the people and the .will of the people, and not the good of a parly and the will of a parly.

It is due to truth to say, that this result was owing to the dissatisfaction entertained by ev ery one, with the course pursued by the Locofoco delegate meeting, in nominating a candidate for the office of Commissioner, an experiment which we venture to say will not be repeated. The of ficial returns are in another column. We lately gave a Loco-foco estimate of the re sults of the coming Election for President and Yice President, and then promised to give our own, which is herewith subjoined. We religious ly believe, that " Old Tip" will do even better, and that Martin Yan Buien will retire from the seat ho has dishonored with a smaller vote, than any other candidate, when there were but two in the field. 10 Locofoco.

Blair, Jr., was tried for forging endorsements on certain notes lodged in the Banks in this Town. On three indictments he pleaded guilty, and on the re maining three not guilty. The trial on the lat ter lasted a week, and on Wednesday evening last, after a long consultation, the jury brought him in guiliv, but warmly recommended him to mercy. On Thursday, after Mr. Miller ad dressed the Court in an impressive and feeling manner in mitigation, tho Court sentenced him to pay a fine of $1,500, with costs. From the testimony, and other circumstances which trans pired, it appeared that the endorsements were forged with the intention of meeting the notes when due and some df them were partially paid off. He came into town on a Saturday evening to take those tip to which he plead guilty, but could not obtain them until Monday, when the matter became public, and, scarcely knowing what to do, he fled. Under the cir cumstances the Court imposed a fine instead of imprisonment. Jerscyman PUBLIC SALE.

GUNSAULES, Sheriff. khenfi s Office, Stroudsburg, October 16, 1840, CURING PRACTICE. The principle of purifying the body by purg ing with vegetable physic is becoming mote and more understood as the only sensible method by which sound health can be established. Hun dreds of individuals have become conviuccd of this doctrine, and are daily acknowledging the practice to be the best ever discovered. Now is the unhealthy season when our bodies are liable to be affected with disease; and now is tho time the state of the stomach and bowels should be attended to, because on the healthy stale of those organs depends the healthy state of the general system; and every one will see it once, if the general health be bad while that re mains, local disease cannot be cured. All the medicine that is requisite to restore the body to a state of health is Brandrethfs Veg etable Uiiiversal Pills, which have performed cures upon thousands of helpless and hopeless persons, after the, usual scientific skill of phy sicians have consoled them with the assurance that they could do no more. The properties of these Pills as ahti-bihous and aperient medicine are unrivalled; all who use them recommend them, their virtues surpass all eulogy, and must be used to be appreciated. The weak and del icate will bo strengthenod by their use, not by bracing but by removing the cause of weakness, the gross and corrupt humors of the body. They require no change in diet or care of any kind. Plain directions accompany each box, so that every one is his own competent physi cian. Remember, none are genuine sold, by druggists. DK. BRANDRETH'S Office in Philadel phia for the sale of his Pills, is No. 8, North Eighth street. Kj3 Agents for Monroe and Pike Counties are at the following places. J JTJMONROE COUNTY.

Stagnation of the Blood. The repeated changes in the atmosphere, by c-' in as thsy do upon the consistence and quality o, rJe lnod, give occasion for tho most fatal and.nu-hun-int disordera. The blood from a state of heahii becomes stagnant and is plunged into a state ol corruption. Thus it loses its purity: its circulation is impe ded; the channsh of life dft clogged; the bowels'ba come costirc, and if not an immediate attack of some malignant fever, headache, nausea, loas ut appetite, and a general debility of the whole frame are sure to follow. It requires the tempost and the tornado to bring about a state of purity in the ocean, when its wa ters become stagnant; and it will require repeat ed evacuation by the stomach and bowels before the blood can be relieved of its accumulated im purity; Brandrcth's Vegetable Universal Pih, should,be taken, then there will be no danger; be cause they purge from the stomach and bowels these humors which are the cause of stagnation. cleanse the blood from all impurities, remOVe evcry cause of pain or weakness, and preserve the consti tution in a state of health and vigor that eaUsmal changes cannot effect.
