T Iflhcsc Medicines are indebted for their name to
JJL their manifest and sensible action in purifying
the springs and channels of life, and enduing them
with renewed tone and, vigor. In many hundred
certified cases which have been made public, and in
almost every species oldisease to which the human
frame is liable, lhc happy effects ol MOFFAT'S
been gratefully and publicly acknowledged by the
persons benefitted, and who were previous
ly unacquainted with the beautifully philosophical
principles upon which they are compounded, and
upon which they consequently act.
The LIFE MEDICINES recommend themselves
in diseases of every form and description. Their
first operation is to loosen Irom the coals of the sto
mach and bowels the various impurities and crudi
ties constantly settling around them ; and to remove
tb; hardened faices which collect in the convolu
tions of the sulci I lest intesti --s. Other medicines
only partially cleanse these, id leave such collect
ed masses behi ud as to produce habitual costivc
ness, wit'i all its train of evils, or sudden diarrhoea,
with its imminent dangers. This fact is well known
to ail regular anatomists, who examine the human
bowels after death ; and hence the prejudice ol those
well informed men against quack medicine or med
icines pre pared and heralded to the public by igno
rant persons. 1 lie se coud cltect ol the .vied
iemes 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 urmary organs. 1 be 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 coining from a clean
stomach, courses freely through the veins, renews
every pari, ed the system, and triumphantly mounts
the banner ed health in the blooming check.

We do not say, absofftlef f, thaf paper inoncv
Banks do more harm wheh fheV are navinir
specie, than when Iney are in a' state of sus
pension: we only say the question is worthy
of coiisitfernlion. The immediate,' sensible,
pnlpable evils, are certainly grenlDstf when the
Ilfinks are m a state ot suspension: but mcse
evils arc not without their advantages,' inas
much aw they muke ihose.Jeel who cannot rea
son, and thus oen their eyes to the nature of
the system. Where lhc Banks nav specie, tho
illusion is so complete that titit few even of
those who have ihe p'owei1 f6 r6ason, will make
a prd'per use of that power. The delusivep-
pearauces of prosperity which are occasioned
by expansions, deceive them in common with,
lhc rest of the multitude, and when contrac
tions come, ns come ttVey must, they are apt to
attribute the ruin wntch follows to any thing
but its true cause. '
For the last twenty years, the Batiks of
great Britain and Ireland have paid specie,
and while so doing, have, to use the language
of Lord Irvcrpoof, "caus6d the downfall of
thousa nds and hundreds of thousands, and the
convulsion of all kinds of property."
With these views of (he subjociy we cannot
engage heartily in n scheme of Bank reform,
which looks merely to' a resumption of specie
payments. It would' be only substituting one
form of evil for atrofher. The people ought
not lo rest satisfied short' of a radical reform,
namely, the substitution of hard money and
bona fide bills of exchange, for paper Bank

It is a question with us whether tho paper
money Banks do most harm, when they pay
specie, or when they suspend payment. To
those who have never studied the principles of
the system, this may seem a very strange
question, but when they reflect on the fact that
it is during the time they are paying specie
that the Banks lay the foundation of the evils
we suffer during the time of suspension, they
may deem the question not unworthy of con
sideintioti. Perhaps we shall be referred to the condi
tion of the city of New York as evidence of
the advantages that arise from the Banks pay
ing specie. In New York, last year, between
900 and 1000 uew houses were erected; and
in Philadelphia between 1300 and 1400. All
lhat this proves is, that the prosperity of the
etiuntry is so deeply seated in natural causes,
that neither specie paying or non specie
paying Banks can prevent the increase of
wealth and population.
There is much distress iu Philadelphia.
Is there less iu New York? Since the re
sumption of specie payments, ihe paper cur
rency of lhat Slate has increased in one yoar
at ihe rale of 90 per cent., increased iu the
year following at the rate of 25 per cent., and
decreased iu ihe succeeding at the rate of 40
per cent. Such fluctuations must necessarily
have caused the ruin of hundreds and of thou
sands; bul as "the; Banks continue to pay
specie," their ruin is attributed to some other
cause than banking; operations.
"The doctriue," says Iord Liverpool,
"that nothing is belter than a paper circula
tion convertible into coin, is true to this ex
tert that if convertible into coin, the evil
will cure itself; whilst one not convertible will
lead lo nothing but ruiu. But how is the cure
to be operated? By the downfall of thousands
and hundreds of thousands, and the convul
sion of all kinds of properly. It is true that
the evil carries its own cure, but with such
terrible consequences that the cure is worse
than the evil."
The notion lhat so long as the Banks pay
specie, ihe ainejunt of currency is jusl the same
as it would be if only gold and silver coins
wcie permitted to circulate, is all an illusion.
Paper money is, even in its best estate, as
Dr. Wilherspoou used to say, "about as good
a measure of value as a woollen thread would
be of length." Under a hard money system,
our currency would never fluctuate more than
five per cent, per aunum; seldom more than
one, or perhaps a half percent. With Banks
paying specie, it may, as appears from the N.
York returns, and other evidences, fluctuate20,
30, or 40 per cent.
So long, however, as the Bauks pay specie,
the illusiou is complete. Because tho Bank
dollar never changes its name, the people think
it never changes its value.

in the Legislature of Indiana, a motion was
made and carried, ordering ihe door-keeper
to fetch a basket of brick-bats, to aid the
Speaker in keeping older in the House.
