bowels) IN ALL CASES.WTIIGU CUKE THE DISEASE.— People of very weakly constitutions often require stronger doses than more healthy persons. Health and sickness being a struggle of two principles, or humors within us; the one good and supporter of life, the other bad, and destroyer of it. These Pills assist nature to aid the good in throwing off tho bud. — It is evident that the more the one predominates over the good, the more assistance the good requires- This is proved by the fact that in almost all violent diseases the patient requires large doses and they often have very little effect ; but that only proves the great necessity there is (or perseverance until, powerful purging take* place. No one will doubt the truth of this who will once fully ' try it. Let this moot important truth be deeply impressed on every mind. That all pain or weakness is owing to morbid, stagnant, and corrupt humors, which impede the circulation of the blood, and that these pills if persevered in, will re...

Scribblers. — The number of scribblers upon California, which this war has given rise and encouragement to, is altogether astonishing, exceeding any pre tunned expectations of ours, for we did surmise a concentration of prodigious zeal, and important assis, tance in representing California. Our files from the East, received of late, are prolific in correspondence, from the Snowy Sierra of the North, to the sun-burned barrens of Southern California; and many of these productions just about as distant from what is fair and honorable, in the representation of their respective localities. We say it again, we were not prepared to operate, with such a host of co-laborers. We observed in a N. Y. City | paper, a letter purporting to have been prepared here, which, among other things, states that San Francisco has no soil that can be cultivated. When we look upon the blooming gardens all about us, and the u milled and fertile lands of surpassing richness, we are inclined to believe the sand ...

Disputing his position as alleged by the Southern Whig press, it says:— " or the information of those journals we can tell them that no blame can be attached to the administration in the premises. It was at Gen.
