Latest Foreign News.
The steamer Acadin arrived at Boo
ton
on the 13th having left Liverpool on
the 28th ult.
The news from IRELAND is of im
portance, and excites in this country pe
culiar interest. Although no actual out
break had taken place, the spirit of in
surrection had got to such a head, that
a collision with the English government
was daily looked for.
The English government were adopt
ing the most crncgetie means to meet
the impending crisis. The Liverpool
Times says, that troops were pouring
into Ireland by thousands. Thirty thou
sand troops are concentrating in and
about Cork, Limerick and Tipperary.
This overwhelming force has had the
erect of exasperating instead of intimi
, dating the people to the extent anticipa
ted.
The Habeas Corpus Act has been sus
pended.
Rewards of £5OO each have been of
fered for the arrest of Smith O'Brien,
Meagher, Dillon and Doheny. A report
has reached Dublin that the former gen
tleman had fled.
At Liverpool, setions apprehensions
were entertained of an outbreak on the
part of the Chartists.
Twenty thousand special constables
had been sworn in, with a view of meet
ing any emergency.
Paris is represented as being in a
tranquil state, and the capital assuming
something like its wonted appearance of
life, gaiety and bustle.
Government is sadly puzzled how to
dispose of the immense number of pris
oners taken during the recent insurrec
tion.
Signs in Mississippi.
The Vicksburg Whig states that the
.ilisszssi:ppi Telegraph, published in
Winston County, and hitherto a Cass
paper, has hauled down its old colors
and raised the banner of TAYLOR and
FILLMORE. The Vicksburg Whig says
that this is the third change in the Mis
sissippi press which it has recorded
since the nomination of Gen. TAYLOR,
all of them favorable to the old hero,
whose generous bearing to her sons,
when placed under his command in a
foreign country, will never be forgotten
or neglected by that proud and chival
rous State.
ri> Governer JOHNSON has issued his
proclamation directing an election to
be held for Governor on the second
Tuesday in October next, and enjoins it
on all Sheriffs and other officers to make
return thert of as though the act of As
sembly had been literally complied with,
and the writs issued more than three
colander months before the election.

The Free Soil Movement.
The much tallied of Buffalo Conven
tion has resulted in the virtual ratifica
tion of the Barnburners' Convention at
Utica. MARTIN VAN BUREN has been
nominated as the Free Soil Candidate
for the Presidency, and CHARLES F. An-
Ants, son of the late John Quincy Ad-1
ams, the candidate for the Vice Presi
dency.
These are nominations which cannot
receive the support of any one who is
thoroughly imbued with Whig princi
ples. No Whig can look upon the long
list of wrongs which the magician of
Kinderhook—the Northern man with
Southren principles, as he has for years
past been called—has inflicted upon the
Free States, and then go and vote for
him as the exclusive friend of the
North. His base subserviency to South
ern domination while he occupied the
Presidential chair, is too fresh in the
mind of the Whi g s, for them to sup
port him as theEree Soil candidate.
They know his true character, and,
knowing it, is enough to induce them to :
withhold their support from him. Hence
the principle support he can expect will .
be from the Locofoco Barnburners and
the Birney Abolitionists.
The only effect the action of the Buf
falo Convention can have, will be to
unite the Whigs in one common band in
support of their cherished principles,
and to incite them to renewed activity
to secure the election of the honest old
hero of Buena Vista. He is known to
be hostile to the extension of slavery,
stands pledged not to veto any bill
which has for its object the prohibition
of the further extension of slavery. The
Whigs, and all others who are in favor
of Free Soil and the Protection of Home
Labor, have in him a candidate in whose
integrity they confide, and of whose op
position to the extension of human ser
vitude they feel well assured. Having
no such confidence in either Cass or
Van Buren, they will now rally with
unanimity and enthusiasm upon the
man of the people—the candidate of
their choice—the plain old soldier who
"asks no favors and shrinks from no re
sponsibility." [Daily News.

Taylor and Harrison.
Gen. TAYLOR snys, if elected Presi
dent, he will be guided solely by the
Constitution. The dying words of Gen.
HARRISON were—" I wish you to under
stand the true principles of the govern
ment—l wish them carried out—l ask
nothing more." Can any supporter of
Harrison hesitate to vote for Taylor.
ED- The Editor of the N. Y. Globe
announces his determination to " die in
the last ditch." He will have to go to
Camargo, then, and die in Gen. Pillow's
ditch. That's the "last," we believe.—
Louisville Journal.
MORE BOLTERS.—The Locofoco party
of Michigan seems to be crumbling to
atoms. A Free Soil Convention was
held at Monroe on the sth inst., nt which
no less than two Presidents of Cass rat
ification meetings participated—one of
Monroe county, the other of Hillsdale
county. Among the officers and speak
ers of the Convention we recognize the
names of the following prominent Loco
focos : Gen. Edwaad Bronson, Hon.
Haynes Johnson, Hon. Thomas Furring
ton, Hon. W. W. Murphy, Hon. Isaac
P. Christiancy, Col. W. Wadsworth,,
Stephen G. Clank, Samuel J. Hall, 0.
Pulver, &c. The Monroe ./Idvocate, the
Loco County organ, publishes these do
ings with great gusto, despises the Bal
timore tickets and will no longer advo
cate it.
CAN'T GO FOR 1-115 L—The editors of
;the Boston atlas are credibly informed
that several of the Whigs who have
been most active against Gen. Taylor
in Middlesex county, refuse to support
Martin Van Buren.
THE 01110 RESERVE.—The Conneaut
(Ohio) Reporter, printed in Mr. (lid
' dings' county, publishes a call for a Tay
lor meeting on the 17th inst., signed by
• two hundred and fifty-seven persons. A
large meeting has also been held in Ak
ron, near by. •
I Wlllll Nomix,rfos FOR CosanEss.—Geo. W.
Smith, Esq.,of Butler, has been nominated by
the Whig onferees from the counties of But
' ler, Armstrong, Indiana and Clearfield, as a can
, didate for Congress in that district.
LivEn Comm.srxr is generally accompanied
with pain in the right side, extending to the top of
the shoulder; variable appetite, occasionally a dis
ordered slomsch, yellow tinge of the skin and
eyes, and often a swelling over the region of the
liver, together with other symptoms of a corrupt
state of the blood.
Wright's Indian Vegetable Pills will be found
one of the very best medicines in the world for the
cure of all diseases of the Liver; because they
expel from the body those morbid humors which
when depo•itcd upon this important organ, ate
the cause of every vat iety of Liver complaint.
From three to six of the above named Pass, ta
ken on going to bed, will in a short time, give
such manifest relief, that no persuasion will be ne
cessary to induce perseverance in their use, until
the liver is restmedto healthy action,

Dear Sir :—I have been a dyspeptic suffeter
for about ten years, and have resorted to various
medicines for relief without success, until I made
use of your Oxygenated Miters.' I have used
about two bott'es, and find myself restored to per
fect health. The forms in which the diecaso
showed itsell, in my ease, were, great aridity of
the stomach, loss of appetite, extreme flatulence,
severe constipation of the boriels, and violect
headache. Feeling desirous that a knowledge of
your valuable remedy may reach others similarly
afflicted, I take great pleasure in recording my tes
timony to its curative power ; and I would also
remark, that while on a visit at home a short time
since, I administered a part of a bottle to a num
ber of my afflicted friends with great success.
They aro desirous that you should estabfish em
agency at Pittsburg, or inform thorn where the
medicine can lie obtained. Willy are earnest de
sire for your prosperity and happiness, r subscribe
myself, truly your friond, H. D. POSTER.
