the hardened faeces wh ch collect in the convolu
tions of the smallest intestines. Other medicines
only pnrtially cleanse these, and leave Such collect
ed masses behind as to produce habitual cestive-
ness, with all its train of evils, or sudden diarrhoea,
with its irnnrnent dangers. 1 his fact is well known
to all regular anatomists, who examine the human
bowels after death ; and hence the prejudiceof those
well informed men a "ainst quack medicine or med
icines prepared and heralded to the public by igno
rant persons. The secoud effect of the Life Med
icines is to cleanse the kidneys and the bladder, and
by this means, the liver and the lungs, the healthful
action of which entirely depends upon the regularity
of the urinary organs. The blood, which takes its
red color from the agency of the liver and the. lungs
before it passes into the heart, being thus purified by
them, and nourished by food coming from a clean
stomach, courses freely through the veins, renews
every part of the system, and triumphantly mounts
the banner of health in the blooming chck.

THE FRAUDS OF THE ELECTIVE
FRANCHISE IN THE CITY OF NEW
YORK, in the fall of tin year 1838, and
the preliminary renunks the.
writer says : I feel sensible thai I have com
mitted a great moral wrong I know that I
have been instrumental in attacking the puri
ty of one of the dearest and most inestimable
rights of freemen, I have succeeded bv the
aid of others, in consummating a stupendous
and daring fraud, nnd I have suffered, and
juslly too, for my illegal conduct; but when I
look around and see others who were as guilty
as myself, men who reaped benefit fiom their
in'quity, while I, aud I only, was compelled
to suffer; men who have been elevated in
consequeuce of their and my unlawful acts,
and who are now courted, while I am passed
by as unworthy to be their associate, I can
but think that I am in the discharge of not
ouly a great moral obligation, but also of a du
ty which I owe to myself aud the public, to
point out the men who were the guilty partic
ipators with mc, that they may be known to
the public, nnd also to expose the manner in
which these frauds were perpetiated, in order
that hereafter no such acts can be attempted
without a certainty of defeat."
It seems that the perpetratiou of the frauds
was suggested in the autumn of 1S3S, bv the
regular Executive Committee ot the Whig
paity in this city, and was consummated under
their immediate sanction and patronage. A
"Confidential Committee" was raised from
the Old aud Young Meu's General Whig
Committees, to perfect and carry out the foul
scheme. On the part of the Senior Commit
tec, Robert Swarlivotit, since appointed a U.
States Weigher, by Curtis, Fraucis L. Lip
pett, and Redwood Fisher; and on the part
of the junior committee, James liowen, now
President of the New York and Erie Rail
Road Company; Robert C. Welmore, since
appoiuted Navy Agent at this port, and Glent
worth were constituted the ' confidentials."
Swartwout and Glentworlh were selected as
the "exchange regulators" between this city
and Philadelphia, aud " to carry into effect
such confidential operations as might be
garei d upon." In reference to the Philadelphia
operation, "which icas to procure persons
from that city to vole in the city of J"etc
York;''1 several interviews were had ut the reg
ular Whig Committee room in Broad street
and elsewhere. Conspicuous in (he pamphlet
we find the names of Edward Curtis Collec
tor of the Port; W illis Hall, Attorney Gene
ral of the State, one of the " confidential "
ex officio ; James P. Freeboru, Potash In
spector; Samuel R. Childs, one of the Waa
ler Commissioners; Theodore Draper, Jr.,
now holding a conspicuous station imdc-r the
government, Richard M. IJIati hlurd, Simon
Draper, George S. Gongherty, and indeed
nil of the most prominent of the W big lead
rs, and the most disliugui-hed of the active
Philadelphia " Whig" paitizaiis.
The importation of the hire ruffians, and
the modus operandi by which they were trans
posed into voters, are thus described :
"The men were to leave by the different

" The method adopted waa ns follows: - (he

they could answer satisfactorily, and without
embarrassment. Frequently alterations were
made among the men during the election, by
changing hats and coats among themselves.
1 recollect there were some persons from New
Jersey, who were under the immediate charge
of rs'oah Cook, I do not know by whom they
were employed or ou what terms tney Wcfc
there ; they appeared very efneient, and fre
quently changed their dress: which charges
were personally attended to by JVoah Cook.
I saw him put his own coat and hat on some
of them several times. These men , boasted,
of having voted in several' Wards, and in some
ustances more than once in the same ward.

There was also a young man by the name
of Coggershall, whose father was at that time,
or subsequently, the keeper of the City Pri
son, who was also employed in preparing
tickets. There was a difficulty with some of
the men, in consequence of a part of their
monei being retained by the leader or lead
ers ; and at the instance, and with tVre advice
of Messrs Lawrence and Nathan,' I paid
them, to defray their expenses to Philadelphia
one hundred and ninety-four dollatg, which
amount, less some small subscriptions, was
returned to me, n few days after the erection,
by Mr Richard M. Blatchford'. During ttw
three days of the election, many of the acf rte'
members of the w hig party were admitted to
the private committee room.. I was perfectly
satisfied, from the successful management of
the operation, that the whig ticket would be
elected in the city, and I so expressed myself
to a number of the leaders of the party."
For the efficient services rendered by
Glentworlh, he was recommended to the Got
eruor by fhe prominent Whigs as a suitable .
candidate lor office. Robert C- Wetmore
wrote a strong letter to Gov. Seward in his
behalf, in which he says, speaking of Glent
worlh, that " he will be recognized as one of
the most ardent and indefatigable partizans,
to whose untiring exertions perhaps more
than to any other in this city, the recent tri
umph of our party and success of sound prin
ciples may be attributed." How this and
the fact that Robert C Wrctmore was one of
the " confidential," can he reconciled with
the statement made by Wetmore, under osth,
in his examination before Recorder Morris,
in wnicu ne swears positively mat ne naa no
knowledge that Glentworth was sent by any
person or persons to Philadelphia in the Fall
of 1S3S that he had not the most distant
knowledge that Glentworth was at Philadel
phia under any circumstuoces that while he
recommended Glentworth to the favor of the
Governor, he did no, do it "upon. the ground
of extraordinary serv ices rendered by him to
the party"' is to odr view most inexplicable.
The reader will be able to come to a correct
conclusion offhfe unscrupulous character of
31 r Wetmore without further comment from
us on this point. Ihe significant remark of
J. Prescott Hall, when Glentworlh spoke to
him of the repeated promises of Blatchford,
Draper, Bowen, Wetmore, &c, to stand by
aud sustain him, that if these gentlemen were
accused they icould all swear through," is
a most pointed commentary on tho character
of those gentlemen for honor and veracity.
This statement of Gtentwoith is interesting,
deeply, painfully interesting. It confirms
everything stated by Mr Stevenson in rela
tion "to the fiaud, and establishes the charac
