In one of the best purgative and liver medi eines now before the public, that acts as a Ca thartic, easier, milder, and more effectual than any ther medicine known. It is not only a Ca thartic, but a Liver remedy, acting first on the Liver to eject its morbid, then on the stomach and bowels to carry off that matter. thus lICCOM. pfishing two purposes effectually. without any of kilt painful feelings experienced in the operation Of most Cathartics.

For the diseases ciii Oi. that organ one of the proprietors has made as it his study, in a mac• tire of more than twen- i ll ty years, to find some remedy wherewith tol counteract the many dsrangementi to which at it is liable.

Educational. A few weeks ago, a simple statement appeared in the Journal in reference to the County Superintendent. It contained no offensive language, and was published to the hope that, if incorrect, the Superin tendeet would avail himself of the lirst opportunity to place himself right before the people. For the truth of that state Meta, we have authority. We never had nor hove we now, any disposition to misre. present the Superintendent: tor Heaven knows, his consistency, personal and offi cial, is pitiable enough without any ntisre• presentation. To the charge preferred, the Superintendent has given us two re_ plies; in neither of which. however. dues he even attempt a denial of its truth.— But believing, it seems, that recrimination is argument, he justifies himself by accu. stilt; us of the same wrong of which he snouts self.convioted ! This is logic with a vengeance Mr. SupePintendent, “thou reasonest well." This controversy hes taken a course un sauulti and unexpected by us. But its the ;-uperintendent has given “the stoke, he must take the scorpion." An eye for on eye," dm The Superintendent proposes several questions which we proceed to answer; sorry, bowever, that we are compelled to 1858. disappoint him in his estimate of our dis cretion To the first, the fourth and the sixth interrogatory, we reply emphatically in the negative. The second and the third we answer in the affirmative. As IV? have no ' , darling institution," the fifth and seventh "go by the board," As to the eighth, we would say that even if our ar ticle aoes contain errors, we very much doubt the Superintendent's ability to de tect them. Are the above answers satis factory I If no, Mr. Superintendent will please give us the catecl,ism. We indulge the hope that the Superintendent will bear this change of position with his usual equanimity. Why does the Superinten. dent,in making his charges against us, shield himself behind the innocent it ? Is not the Superintendent extremely anxious that the people should know that he has read Father W hately ? Would the Super. intendant hold the office he does, had he not made the basest misrepresentations I Did not the students of a "certain institu tion," in which the Superintendent was a teacher, sign a petition for his dismissal 1 Has the •uperintendent any "conscten ions scruples" about his late "Norinal School" enterprise ? Did the conduct of the superintendent toward a lady teacher in n certain instituti in, contribute to his respectability ? Did not the Superinten ' dent, a few months ago, grant a certificate zei , hout examination, to a person who had serer taught school an hour ; and ten., that the-way to correct abuses ? Do the people of this county believe that the Superibiritendent is competent to dis ' charge the duties or the office he now holds ? We may add to the above, if it be . cornea necessary. We are the "whispering advocate" of no schools. But when the educational servant of the whole county, labors to in. "e J • r the educational interests of any part of the mainty, it is our right—ay. our duty, to expose his treachery. Against any attacks made in consequence of doing this, "the blood of Incog can defend itself." The superintendent is. evidently in trouble ; he becomes desperate; and as, , drow..ing men catch at straws," he cries "Help one, Leroy. or I sink." Let us examine the superintendent's logic. He is the fri nd of all our literary institutions; hut one of our literary institutions it a 'swindling instillment ;" therefore, he is the friend of ' , swindling instruments." Shades of Blair Protect us! In justice to the Superintendent, we acknowledge that his conduct adds force to his logic. We will now make the superintendent "glad' , again by putting some inquiries to him as to the correctness and construction of parts of his last article. Does he not know that his first sentence is palpably incorrect? Is he so cruel as to think that we would, for one moment, entertain a private antip athy against him T Shall ''our name," or our self, be "a law se udent?" If the former, when will tt be admitted? Is it really so that the Superintendent tends to give a newspaper review of each with which his knowledge will justify ?" Do the bands of some persona "work to injury ?" Whose injury ? Will the "Superintendency," or the Superintendent .meet oppososition at the threshold ?" Did the Superintendent ever look for. ward upon the past? At whose "early convenience," will be favor us? If at the people's convenience," will it be "ear. ly?" But we ask no more, lest we make the Superintendent too "glad." We thank the Superintendent for a re baptism ; but as he is not remarkable for his orthodoxy, we scarcely thought he be lieved in the ordinance. Now. as he in tends "to present smo new ideas," he will pardon us for suggesting that, if he should nerd any assistance it can be had by applying to "Mr. Wise, Eaq." And we desire the Superintendent. if he has read -Rusty, musty, fusty. crusty. Chris topher," to give us, in the course of his uncles, his opinion of the work We confess we were foolish enough to believe that the superintendent, before attemptiti to correct orthography, would consult his everlasting enemy, Noah Webster. But alas. vain hope! He feels large, and al most forces us to ink, in the names of all the gods at once," upon what meat he feeds, that he is grown so great." When the future historian shall write ;he educa Lionel history of Pennsylvania, let him do justice to our Superintendent. On the frontispiece, let him give a portrait; and beneath it, let there be inscribed in char acters of living light, the name of "Ale BERT THE WISE! it is said that Achilles was vulnerable only in the heel. But the Superintendent is vulnerable in a much more prominent part; his mamma not hav ing been blessed with a Styx into which she could plunge her "ifa , lifig boy" But not withstanding this , he is, to himseq,a 'huge prospect ;" and his, may yet be VOL.
