ING OF VESSELS, B(C.—W right's Indian Ve
getable Pills are certain to prevent the at
hove dreadful consequences, because they
purge from the body those morbid humors
which, when floating in the general circu
lation, are the cause of a determination or
rush of blood to the head, a pressure upon
the brain, and other dreadful results.—
From two to six of said Indian Vegetable
Pills, taken every night, on going to bed,
will in a short time so completely cleanse
the body from every thing that is opposed •
to health that sudden death, apoplexy,
bursting of blood vessels, or indeed any mal
ady, will be in a manner impossible.
Wright's Vegetable' Indian Pills also aid
and improve digeston, and purify the blood
and therefore give health and vigor to the
whole frame, RS well as drive disease of
every name from the body.
Beware of Counterfeits.—The public are
cautioned against the many spurious medi
cures which in order to deceive are made
in outward appearance, closely to resem
ble the above wonderful Pills.
OBSERVE.—Purchase only of the adver
tised agents, or at the office of the Gener
al Depot, No. 169 Race street, Philadel
phia, awl be particular to ask fur WRIGHT'
Indian Vegetable Pills.
The genuine medicines can be obtained
at the store of Wm. Stewart, Huntingdon.

Movement in Madison Co.
John G. Curtis, Ralph .1. Gates, and One Then
deed and three other life-long suppoiters of the
Democratic" party, (so calling itself,) have issued
a manifesto in which they are compelled, since the
defeat of Van Buren at Baltimore and the adoption
of Polk and Texas, to abandon their party or their
principles, and they choose the latter.
Mr. Polk is NOT for Protection
The United States Gazette of the 17th says :
We think that we must, yesterday, have received a
copy of that edition of the Globe intended for the
south, as the leading editorial is one of the coarsest
and harshest assaults upon the tariff that we have
seen for some days. The Globe is getting ram
bunctious, and raves like a real eoaplock against
Mr. Clay, and the protective system. It would be
well if our friends in Pennsylvania could procure
copies of this edition, of the Globe, and circulate
them among that class of people who aro deceived
with the cry, "Polk is as much a protective tariff
man as Henry Clay."
We copy a part of the Globe article, for the ben
efit of those of our readers as have been led away
by that wicked deception :
" Upon this principle Mr. Clay now again plants
himself. Such overgrown capitalists as Abbot
Lawrence, Appleton, and others, must be protected
by a high tariff in adding immense accumulations
to the large fortunes made under a low tariff. Poor
men! they must be protected, by increasing the tax
on every thread in the garments of every laborer
who sweats in the fields or workshops of the coun
try. For them, Sir Robert Peel's maxim is revers
ed. They must buy in the cheapest, and sell in
dearest market.—The vast agricultural products of
the continent must find a home market in the glut
ted vicinage of the New England factories. By
limiting foreign imports, our exports to the foreign
and wider markets of the world are limited in pro
portion ; and while the American farmer is com
pelled by the impost to pey a higher price for the
manufactures he consumes, his confined home mar
ket compels him to sell his products at lower
rates. The protective tariff thus gives the capitalist,
for whose benefit it is imposed, a double monopoly
monopoly in selling his own wares, and a mo
nopoly in purchasing the agricultural product be
Let honest men look at ouch assertions from the
Globe, and then say whether Mr. Polk, or his lead
ing friends, aro for a protective twill:
cO-Would'nt Jake Shavetail make a pure and
incorruptible Legislator !
The Madisonian is amusing itself with some re
markable prophecies touching the Presidential Elec
tion. It gives Massachusetts to Mr. Clay, and the
rest of the States to Mr. Polk. A more learned ed
itor of a more accredited paper, viz: Mr. Ritchie,
in the Richmond Enquirer, made a very similar
prophecy in September, 1840, with reference to
General Ilarrison and Van Buren. The latter na
med gentleman was to receive nearly all the electo
ral votes. The prophecy had hardly reached the
different States, before history took cognizance of
the matter, and showed the difference between vatic
ination and facts.
The Madisonian thus concludes its article
"But finally, Mr. Tyler's withdrawal having uni
ted on Polk and Dallas each and every element of
the party, the Whigs have nothing to do but to
hang their harps on the willows."
The elements have not combined, and though
they had, they could not compose a party to beat
Henry Clay. But how could the elements com
bine l In the south, and in some of the middle
States, Mr. Polk is sustained on the grounds of his
strong attachments to "immediate annexation."
That is the one thing needful in the slave States,
and that is what they go for. In New York, and
in the eastern States, a majority of the Locofoco
party are opposed to immediate annexation, and
hold opinions with Mr. Van Buren.—This does not
look much like uniting elements. In the south, and
in the city of New York, the Locos go for Mr. Polk,
because he is for very low duties on importation:.
a "free trade man;" yet the Locos of the middle
and New England States, a majority of them, are
for a protective tariff. And while the former are
denouncing all union with theprotectivee, the latter
are denouncing the "free traders.' Does this leak
like a union of elemental Perhaps the Madisonian
means that the party, having agreed to have no
principles, to be reckless and unprincipled, have
determined to unite their elements on Mr. Polk, as
a suitable head of such a party. We can only say,'
that any honest man would rather have the elements
of the thunder cloud poured out upon his head than
such a union. The union of the elements may
have taken place, but it does not include the ele
ments of success; and thus formed, cannot include
the principal portion of the Locofeco party. They
are too honest, too patriotic, to unite on the election
of • , .. 1 1 vilest: principles are adapted to every en
treat° or parry mews; who saTexas ono
protective and anti-protective, and whatever else
may delude a confiding people into a false vote.
Mr. Tyler's treason has done its worst—nay, it
had already, before finally exhibited. His dinner
table comsummation served as a beacon light (a
phosphorescent lumination from putrid decay,) to
warn off every voter.—U. S. Gazette.
Crow, Chapman, Crow:
In 1840, our readers will recollect, the locofocos
bragged loudly and constantly, previous to the elec
tions, by what immense majorities they should carry
the various States—New York by 25,000 (if we
remember rightly) and Pennsylvania by the same.
Wo will nut be satisfied with 15,000 majority in
this State, said Mr. Dallas—we will carry the Shea
by 25,000. But the State went for Harrison, and
so did New York.
And now the same game of brag is being played
by the same party. They crow every where and
claim every State, even Kentucky !—But instead of
this bragging being evidence of confidence, it is the
reverse; it shows that they are alarmed, and are en
deavoring to keep up thu courage of their party, and
frighten back to their ranks those who have loft
them, and are leaving them in disgust. Whigs, be
not alarmed by this bluster and gasconade—it is all
a rave. It is reported that a certain Captain was
at the Astor House, a day or two ago, and it wee
given out that he was ready to bet $100,000; but,
when several Whigs went to the Hotel where he
and his money had been heard of, he was not there.
We presume the order has been given to Chapman
to crow, and accordingly we hear a great deal of
chanticleering; but roosters sometimes mnko a
small mistake, and proclaim the approach of day,
even in a the very noon of night." We have not
observed that these Chapmans have showed confi
dence enough in their own rnedictions to take a
certain bet that some one has offered them, namely,
$250 that Mr. Cloy will get the vote of the State he
lives in; $250 that he will got the vote of the State
he was born in; $250 that Mr. Polk will not get
the vote of the State he lives in, and $260 that he
will not get the vote of the State he woo born in.
The Locos are bragging lustily that Polk will get
the vt3teri of Now York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Ohio! But not
one of these States will cast her electoral vote for
hiss—NOT ONE.—/b.

From the Philadelphia Forum,
The Sub-Treasury System....
When, in May, 1843, Mr. Polk was asked by
several citizens of Tennessee, whether he was in
favor of the Sub-Treasury System, passed by Con
gress in 1840, and repealed in 1841, he replied:
"1 AM." This scheme was urged upon the at
tention of Congress by Mr. Van Buren, and one
of his arguments in its favor was that a similar
policy had been adopted by 22 despotic govern
ments! The following are the wages of labor in
eight of the despotisms referred to by Mr. Van
Buren :
France 20 cents per day.

Mr. Buchanan, in his speech on the Sub-Treasu
ry bill, after stating that the foreign manufacturer
would not take our bank notes in payment, and
would take nothing but gold and silver, or bills of
exchange, which are equivalent, said:
"Sir, I solemnly believe that if we could but re
duce this inflated paper bubble to anything like
reasonable dimensions, New England would be
come the most prosperous manufacturing country
that the sun ever shone on. Why can not We
manufacture goods, and especially cotton goods,
which will go into successful competition with
British inanutactures in foreign markets? Have
we not the necessary capital? Have we not the in
dustry? Have we not the machinery I And,
above all, are not our skill, energy and enterprise,
proverbial throughout the wotld I Land is also
cheaper here than in any other country on the face
of the earth. We possess every advantage which
Providence can bestow on us for the manufacture
of cotton ; but they are all counteracted by the fol
ly of man. Tho raw material costs us lees than it
does the English, because this is an article, the
price of which depends upon foreign markets, and
is trot regulated by our own inflated currency.—
We, therefore, save the freight of the cotton across
the Atlantic, and that of the manufactured article
on its return here. What is the reason, that with
all these advantages. and with the protective duties
which our laws afford to the domestic manufac
turer of cotton, we cannot obtain exclusive posses
sion of the home market, and successfully contend

inflated currency, and are compelled to sell at the
prices of other nations. I:..lteduce our nominal
to the real standard of prices throughout the
world, and you cover our country with blessings
and benefits I wish to heaven I could speak in a
voice loud enough to be heard throughout New
England ; because if the attention of the manuftic
turers could once he directed to the subject. their
own intelligence and native sagacity would teach
theirs how injuriously they are affected by our
bloated banking and credit system, and would en
1 1
them to apply the proper corrective."
Do our workingmen desire their wager, reduced
to the standard of the countries quoted above ? If
so, they will support Polk, who is in favor of the
Sub-Treasury scheme, and opposed to protection.
Their wages once reduced, they may toil and
sweat for years before they can get back to a living
standard. And understanding this, they will
scarcely be found pursuing such a suicidal course.
The Locofoco papers inform us that Mr. Buchan
an is about to " take the stump" in this State for
Polk,•Dullas and Shunk. Will Ire in his speeches
repeat the extract above quoted ? He cannot con
scientiously say that it is not a correct copy, for it
is on record. Will he, then, when he comes before
the people of Pennsylvania, honeatly acknowledge
that it is his policy to reduce the wages of our
laborers? This effect would most assuredly he
produced by the establishment of the Sub-Treasury
System and the repeal of the Tariff, and for this
reason the capitalists of England have sent their
money here for the purpose of publishing Free
Trade Tracts, and thus promoting the election of
James K. Polk! Both the Free Trade and Sub-
Treasury schemes are calculated to advance the in
terests of the Btitish Manufacturers! They care
nothing about our institutions, the welfare of our
people, or the prosperity of our country; and they
know that the reduction : of wages here, and
the repeal of the Tariff, depend upon the success
of the Locofoco party. They would rejoice to see
our honest and enterprising workingmen placed on
a level with their pauper laborers, because such an
event would secure to them a market on our shores
for their fabrics I
Polk and his party are Well aware that they can
not succeed upon the merits of their measures, for
when understood, they are as obnoxious to the
people, as they are ruinous to the country; and
therefore, they are very willing to receive the aid

Great Mass Meeting in Pittsburg---
G•cn. arkle's Speech.
We copy the following from the Pittsburg
American of the 11th inst:
This exciting event came off yesterday sad well
may our Whig friends be proud of this display of
their zeal on this occasion, and of the cause which
brought them together. It is useless to attempt Any
estimate of the numbers in such a gathering of
people. The streets were everywhere i immed with
peoplb and formed a living nines of moving matter.
On Monday, about 5 o'clock, the central delega
tion from Westmoreland reached the city in car
riages and on horseback. At the head of this dele
gation, was proudly placed their distinguished fellow
citizen and neighbor, GENERAL MAnio.c.—He
arrived at East Liberty in a carriage, having been
escorted from Turtle creek by Capt. Sahl with his
company of dragoons. At East Liberty he wzri
met by an interesting band—those who remained
of his fellow soldiers at Mississinewa and Fort
Wigs, commanded on the occasion by Maj. John
Willock., on horseback, by whom he was addressed
as follows:
In the name and in behalf . of the sur
viving soldiers of the last war present, and assem
bled in Pittsburg, I am here, by appointment, to
meet you and escort you to our city.
I am accompanied on this occasion, by some of
our citizen soldiers, who belong to that arm of the
service, in which you were yourself distinguished
in the field, and who feel that you are entitled to
this mark of respect from them, without reference
to party.
Allow, me, General, in the name of your fellow
soldiers to give you hearty welcome, and to accom
pany you to where a vast assemblage of your
friends are mustering to greet your arrival, in a
manner due to a true patriot and gallant soldier,
who risked his life and fortune for Ilia country."
To which General Markle replied in the following
feeling and touching manner:
I am truly happy to be met, in
this friendly way, by my old fellow soldiers.
I feel much flavored by the kind expressions
with which you have been pleased to welcome mo
—coming as they do, from those who served with
me with so much credit to themselves and honor to

Permit me to thank the citizen soldiers, who have

you, Major Willock, that I inn glad to meet you
and so many of my old acquaintances in good health
and spirits. '
The General then mounted an horseback, and
amidst his old comrades rode into the city attended
by a number of citizens on horse-back preceding the
long lino of Westmoreland Whigs, with their va
rious banners. These made a tine and noble ap
pearance, as they moved along in wagon., pleasure
carriages and on horseback with their splendid flap
and banners. One delegation bore a well executed

delegation bore a transparency inscribed Markle'.

Markle routed the Delawares in 1912, and will
, route the Kickapoos in 1814." Various other ban
ners were borne by this noble delegation. They
set out with a determination to deserve the banner,
and they won it, and perhaps no price was ever won
to the more general—we may say universal satis
faction of all the competitors.
Do the Whigs know
That the election of President is to ha decided on
the 2nd Tuesday of October
Do they know that the election of Gen. Markle
is necessary to secure the election of Mr. Clay I
Do they know that all the efforts of the Loco
feces are bent to secure the election of Mr. Shunk
Do they know that the Locofocos are endeavor
ing to secure the election of their candidate for
Governor by bargaining for votes—by promising to
vote for Mr. Clay at the Presidential election, pro
vided the friends of Clay will vote for Shank
Do they know that this scheme is extensively
put into operation, and unless properly met and
exposed, may do much harm I
Do they see the importance of bringing the lo
cal and state questions before the people, !to fully
arouse them for tho Slate Contest on the 2nd
Tuesday of October? _ _
We hope that every Witig, and every friend of
Mr. Clay will see the importance of his own vote
and of carrying the State by a decided majority on
the 2nd Tuesday of October.
We hope they will hear it in mind that they are
a majority of the citizens of Pennsylvania, and
that they can, if they will, carry the State for Gov
ernor and Legislature by a triumphant election;
end that if they do not, in all probability their et;
forts aftertimes wilt be in vain.
