IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776.
WHEN, in the course of human events,
it becomes necessary
.for one people to
dissolve the political bands which have
connected them with another, and to as
sume, among the powers of the earth, I
the separate and equal station to which
the laws of nature and of nature's Goa
entitle them, a decent respect for the
opinions of mankind, requires that they
should declare the causes which impel
them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident
—that all men are created equal; that
they are endowed by their Creator, with
certain unalienable rights ; and among
these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness. That to secure these rights,
governments are instituted among men,
deriving their just powers from the con
sent of the governed ; that whenever ally
form of government becomes destruc
tive of these ends, it is the right of the ,
people to alter or abolish it, and to insti- •
tute a new government, laying its foun
dation on such principles, and organizing
its powers in such forms, as to them
shall seem most likely to effect their
safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed,
will dictate, that governments long es- 1 ,
tablished, should not be changed for light
and transient causes ; and, accordingly
all experience bath shown that mankind
are more disposed to suffer, while evils
are sufferable, than to right themselves
by abolishing the forms to which they
are accustomed. But when a long train
of abuses and usurpations, pursuing inva
riably the same object, evinces a design
to reduce them under absolute despotism
—it is their right, it is their duty, to
throw off such government, and to pro
vide new guards for their future secu
rity. Such has been the patient suffer
once of these colonies, and such is now
the necessity which constrains them to
alter their former system of government.
The history of the present king of Great
Britain, is a history of repeated injuries
and usurpations, all having in direct ob
ject the establishment of an absolute
tyrrany over these states. To prove
this, let facts be submitted to a candid

In every stage of these oppressions,
we have petitioned for redress, in the
most humble terms ; our repeated peti
tions have been answered only by re
peated injury. A prince whose charac
ter is thus marked by every act which
may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the
ruler of a free people.
Nor have we be . en wanting in atten
tion to our British brethren. We have
warned them from time to time, of at
tempts made by their legislature, to ex
tend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over
us. We have reminded them of the cir
cumstances of our emigration and set
tlement here. We have appealed to their
native justice and magnanimity-, and
we have conjured them, by the ties of
our common kindred, to disavow these
usurpations, which would inevitably in
terrupt our connections and correspon
dence. They, too, have been deaf to the
voice of consanguinity. We must there
fore, acquiesce in the necessity which
denounces our separation, and hold them
—as we hold the rest of mankind—ene
mies in war—in peace, friends.
Ws, therefore, the representatives of
the United States of America, in general
Congress assembled, appealing to the
Supreme Judge of the world, for the
rectitude of our intentions, Do, in the
name, and by the authority of the good
people of these colonies, solemnly pub
lish and declare, that these united colo
nies are, and of " right ought to be, free
and independent states,—That they are
absolved from all allegiance to the Brit
ish crown, and that all political connec
tion between them and the state of Great
Britain is, and ought to be, totally dis
solved ; and that as free and independent
states, they hare full power to levy war,
conclude peace, contract alliances, es
tablish commerce ; and to all other acts
and things, which independent states
may of right do. And for the support
of this declaration, with a firm reliance
on the protection of Divine Providence,
we mutually pledge to each other our
lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
Signed by order and in behalf the

DISSOLUTION OF COPARTNER
SHIP.—The copartnership hereto
fore existing, under the name of WM. bWAIM &
SON, was dissolved on the 21st of July last, by
he decease of the said Wm. Swaim, and the busi
ness is now, and will be in future, conducted exclu
sively by the subscriber, who has had the sole
charge of the manufacturing of the Panacea and
Vermiluge for the last 14 years.
Tho Panacea will be put up as usual in round
bottles, fluted longitudinally, with the following
letters on the glass--"Swaitn's Panacea, Philada."
and the only change made is the name of JAS.
SWAIM stamped on the sealing wax, and written
on the label covering the cork, and a new label for
the side of the bottle, composed of geometric lathe
work, comprising nine different dies, which have
been turned for tho exclusive use of the proprietor,
by Draper & Co., bank note engravers of Philadel
phia. Four dies of different patterns form the body
of the work, and in the centre is a portrait of the
late Wm. Swaim, separated from the borders by
two circles of lathe work. The words " Swaim's
Panacea," are engraved conspicuously on two turn
ed strips, and a large semi-circular die forms the
upper margin. The borders are composed of plain
lathe work strips, outside of which is engraved in
small letters the entry of the copyright.

is to inform you that I was afflicted for 20 years
with a violent pain in my breast, so much so that
I could hardly lay in bed at night. Cough attended.
followed by emaciation and other decided symp
toms of consumption. I applied to several eminent
physicians, and took a great deal of medicine with
out any relief whatever. I was advised to try Dr.
Davis's Compound Syrup of Wild Cherry and
Tar, of which I took two bottles, which entirely re
lieved me of my complaint; therefore I can with
confidence recommend it to all who are in a like
meni,er afflicted, as a most valuable Medicine.

tained without it. It is thrown off from the
blood and other juices of the body, and
disposes by this means of nearly all the
impurities within us. The language of
scripture, " in the blood is the life."—
If it ever becomes impure it may be
traced directly to the stoppage of the
" insensible perspiration. rhus we
see all that is necessary when the blow./
is stagnant or infected, is to open the
pores and it relieves itself from all im
purity instantly. Its own heat and vi
tality are sufficient, without one particle
of medicine, except to open the poree
upon the surface. Thus we see the folly'
of taking so much internal remedies.-- ,
All practitioners, however, direct their
efforts to restore the insensible perspira
tion. The Thompsonian, for instance:

wet blankets ; the Homoeopathist deals
out infintissimals; the Ailopathist bleedl .

ited that a salve can have any effect
upon the lungs, seated as they are with.-
in the system. But if placed upon the'
chest, it penetrates directly to the lungs,
separates the poisonous particles that
are consuming them, and expels them
from the system. I need not say that
it is curing persons of Consumption con
tinually, although we are told that it is
foolishness. I care not what is said, so
long as I can cure several thousand per

Pimples on the face, Masculine Skin,

Wonms.—lf parents knew how fatal
most medicines were to children taken
inwardly, they would be slow to resort
to them. Especially mercurial lozen
ges,' called medicated lozenges,'vet
mifuges," pills,' Scc. The truth is, no .
one can tell, invariably, when worms
are present. Now let me say to parents,
that this salve will always tell if a child
has worms. It will drive every vestige
of them away. (Read the directions
around the box.) There is probably no
medicine on the face of the earth at
once so sure and so safe in the expul
sion of worms.
OLD SORES.—That some sores are an
outlet to the impurities of the system,
is because they cannot pass oft' through

salve will always provide for such emer

FEVERS.—In all cases of fever, the
difficulty lies in the pores being locked
up so that the heat and perspiration can
not pass off: if the least moisture could
be started, the crisis has passed and the
danger is over. The all-healing oint
ment will in all cases of fevers almost
instantly unlock the skin and brings
forth the perspiration.
