The Assembly nominations for this County be- » now complete, and the several parties being out to take the fiehkm support of their respec- e Candidates, i f becomes our duty, as die con- ctors of a public journal, and as one of the po- 'cal organs of the County, freely, though can- -dly and impartially, to canvass the claims which ese several nominations present *o the confidence d support of the Republican electors. Without making any invidious comparisons, we I be justified and borne out in the remark, that point of character and talent the ticket friendly the State and National Administrations will not ffer in comparison with either of the others.— lit while their qualifications will be conceded to ample and appropriate, objections will, no doubt, made to their political opinions and preferen- It is not only natural that such objections ouldbe made by those of different political views, ttbev may be very honestly indulged. It is be- ved, however, that a very slight recurrence to e real characters of the several parties in this onnty, and to the true nature of the approaching ntest, will remove any and ever}- objection hav- <*its origin in a difference of political views. It has not escaped observation or remark that situation of parties in this County is entirely vv and essentially different from what.it has been any former occasion. The present contest nimences and will be conducted under circum- ces of a novel and peculiar character. The administration or Adams party no longer exists, er under its former name or any other. Hav- failed in securing the re-election of their favor- candidate, and entertaining different views as ho should be .the successor of the present in- beut, they had no common object in view, re governed by no common bond of union, and, seqnently, had no motive for a continued po- al organization. The dissolution of such a • was not only inevitable, but was, no doubt, ently desired by most of the individuals compo- it. That dissolution or dismemberment has ently been fully completed by the holding of 0 distinct Conventions, composed almost exclu- ely of individuals professing the same political timeuts, and who have hitherto acted together, d by the nomination of two distinct and oppo- v tickets. The Adams party is effectually dis- ced, and, in this County, has no longer even nominal existence. It is, however, their own and they are no doubt prepared to take the nees. nch being the state of tilings, the present con- is not, as formerly, between the friends and oppo=ersof the Administration, for the Adequ- ation, in this County, may truly be said to be tbout opposition uU 4nir * i —-S» rrtrrr net \V11R US WUO re heretofore been against us. There is neither propriety nor inconsistency in their doing so; they certainly cannot be required separately J individually to pursue a course which, when ng together and organized as a party, they vir- Uy declared to be both impolitic and unjust.— eed, we apprehend it would be difficult if not possible to find satisfactory reaspns why the aistration Ticket should not receive an undi- ed support. Neither of the parties oppoed to retend to base their opposition upon political unds. Their own acts and declarations furnish most incontestible evidence that their opposi- n is not political. The Anti-Masons, in their dress adopted at their recent County Convention, ressly disclaim all party or political views, and y call upon every class of politicians to unite th them. .Not only this, but that Convention made up of individuals of every political cast complexion. The Anti-Administration Con- on famished evidence equally strong and un- \vocal that, however much they might talk a- nt party considerations, and however loudly they »bi boast of their political purity and consisten- cy were, in truth, equally regardless of all tical views or considerations with the Anti-Ma- nic. While professedly acting as the exclusive, d, unforgiving and uncompromising opposers the present Administration, they exhibited the cerity of their professions by nominating a firm decided Jackson man, already in nomination th*t party. Their other two candidates are 1 known as active and leading Anti-Masons— now in nomination as such, and the other but 0 years since elected Anti-Masonic Justice of 1 eace. If s^gh a nomination pretends to be ' w e can only say that it is a libel upon ev- 'Wng like political consistency. We repeat, then, there is no acknowledged or- ed opposition to the Administration on polit- 1 grounds. Indeed it is hardly possible that re should be: for we appeal to the Electors of « County whether, in their impartial and delib- e judgment, there are sufficient reasons to an- nze or, justify an opposition to the present Ad- istration ? We ask diem, in a spirit of candor with a feeling of confidence, to point out a sol- instance in which the honor or the interests «w country have been sacrificed or even haz- d' Whatever doubts and apprehensions may jlgeen indulged previous to the election, if ex- '• has shown that they were misplaced; if, we firmly believe, the government has been a- 1 and faithfully administered, then, we ask, is not the part of wisdom ; nay, is it not the im- Matire dictate of daty, to yield to that Adminis- tlo n a public and cordial support ? Onr honest •> intelligent yeomanry will never identify them- ves whh, an opposition which acts alike without -Win and without object, for the mere purpose of citing political contention and party fends. ™e cannot close our remarks without observ- er that it is somewhat singular that the Anti- wsonic party, whose sole and only aim is the '^ration of .Masons and Masonry, should have e ected as their candidates individuals known to . e \> favor of Mr, C4ay, a distinguished\ and ac- ^ Slason,*for the next Presidency ! They are ' supporting men who, in less than two years, ' n ' be found fighting against them, and are thus, -Tn^lves, contributing to defeat the very object •7 have in vi«»w A similar remark is applicable to the Anti-Ad- ministration nomination, so called. It is certainly singular that they should have selected one firm and decided opponent, and two others known to belong to a party with whom political considera- tions are of secondary importance. With the Republican nomination it is far other- wise. They were nominated by a Convention which acted in accordance with its real views.— They are gentlemen whose^pojitical sentiments have been uniform and without disguise. Their sentiments, too, have been entertained by them for a period of time which forbids all suspicion that they were adopted for personal or sinister mo- tives. In their selection reference was not had to their political sentiments only, but also to their known liberal views in relation to the unfortunate agitations which now distract us. Brought for- ward without an effort, or even a wish on their part, their election will show that the confidence reposed m them has not been misplaced, and will secure the important advantages of an able repre- sentation, and do much to calm the excited state of public feeling. THE REVISED STATUTES. The first of a promised series of numbers, under tiiis head, will be found in our columns of to-day. They treat of a subject of universal interest, and of paramount importance to every class in the com- munity and to every citizen of this state. They .furnish a concise and luminous compendium of the laws as recently revised and amended. In addition to this, they will point out in what partic- ulars they differ from our former statutes, the new provisions which have been introduced, and the object, nature and effect of those provisions.— These numbers appear originally in the Ontario Messenger, and are, we presume, from the pen of: the Convention unanimously adopted : a distinguished professional gentleman of this county, whose talents and industry contributed ve- ry essentially to that great work, which cannot but prove an honor and a blessing to our state. Should the author of these numbers find leisure to contin- ue them, as we trust he will, we recommend them togeneral attention. They will constitute a partial, but valuable digest of the laws now in force, and should be not only attentively read, but carefully preserved, for future reference. SENLCA COUNTY At a Convention of Republican Delegates, from the several towns in the county of Seneca, friend- ly to the present state and national administration.*, convened at die house formerly occupied by Hen- ry Beiry, in the town i.f Fayette, iu the said county, Harris Usher, of Seneca Falls, was ap- pointed Chairman, and Col. J 0 ] tn Montgomery, of Lodi, Secretary. The following delegates appeared and took their seats in the Convention : ''' Waterloo.^-Thomixs Pitcher, William A. Strong, Samuel Birdsall.

That a committee of one delegate from each town be appointed to report to the con- vention the names of six persons a* Senatorial de- legates. The cpmmittee reported the following—Israel W.

Resolved, That the said persons be and they are hereby appointed delegates to the Senatorial Con- vention to be held at Waterloo October next. *XXUF Resolved, That Samuel Bird-all. Jehiel H. Hal- sey, David Edwards, Robert Purdy, and Thom- as Pitcher, be a committee to draw up and Repertto the Convention, Resolutions ami an Address, expressive of the objects and \lews of this Con- vention. £?The committee reported the following Resolu- tions and Address, which, being duly considered, Kubert Purdy, Da- Solomon Porter, on the tftb day of Resolved. That we have the highest confidence in the integrity and ability nf our present Chief Magistrate ; and that we firmly believe, under his administration, those republican principles which triumphed in the election of the venerated Jeffer- son, will be renewed and strengthened, and re tii.QS, and such labors to deceive Jackson men into their ranks can succeed, will soon be seen. Fellow citizens—--Is there one among us who can be deceiv ed by these leaders ? L there one among y ou u ho can believe that »uch men really wish to see the institution of Masonry abandoned ! We have, in addition to all the inconsistencies we have mentioned, seen them invite Masons to leave the institution and then denounce them. Unwilling to see public opinion inflict upon the institution its proper character, they resort to force and denunci- ation, not in the hope of uprooting it, but to pro- long the excitement. We have >eon these same men denounce the government for passing special laws, assigning able counsel, and freely appropri- ating the public money to discover the murderers of Morgan, for the purpose of trial and judgment; and still they inveigh against the outrage, and af- fect an opposition to the Institution. The leaders of this party are now covertly pla) ing a deep game, nnder the garb of Anti-masonry, to elevate Hen- ry Clay, one of the highest Masons known U. the Order, in 163£, to the office of Chief Magistrate oftbiscountry. However inconsistent this may ap- pear with the professions of these leaders, it is ne- vertheless true; and'if Mr. Clay lives till that pe- riod arrives, it will be fully established by their o- pen and avowed support. If thi? question is now put to the lesq wary of these exclusive patriots, w ho is your candidate for the next Presidency? the an- swer is, Henry Clay. Is this more inconsistent than the abandonment of Southwick and Crary last fall, and going into the support of a man for Governor who had denounced the whole body of the Anti-masons as cattle '. Is it more, inconsistent than the abandonment of the Anti-masonic party by Mr. Granger, and their now offering him as a candidate worthy of their support ? They are a- ware that no party is more opposed to secret socie- ties than the republican party ; and that, as a party, they have less interest in the maintenance of such societies than those who formerly belonged to them. Republicans neverbebnged to Washington Benev- olent Societies, but most of the leaders in political Anti-masonry did. They derive not their princi- ples of action from secret socictie- or combinations of men for sinUterpurposes. Their views and feel- ings are known to be opposed to such associations ; and if the institution of Misonrv is extirpated or a- bandoned, it will be more attributable to the con- siderate course of the democracy of the country, than to thp reckless and proscribing efforts of po- litical Anti-mas< ' ry. These men who are thus attempting to pervert The New-York City Convention, called for the purpose of amending the city charter, has at last terminatedits labors. The more important amend- ments, we believe, are the making the Common Council consist of two distinct boards, instead of one, as formerly, called the Board of Aldermen and the Board of Assistants, and the exclusion of the Mayor and the Recorder from the Common Council. A Resolution was passed to petition the Legislature to pass a law giving directly to the peo- ple the right of choosing the Mayor. The new charter is to be submitted to the electors for their ratification. From the great unanimity with which the amendments were adopted on the final vote of the Convention, being forty in favor and six a- gainst, there can be little doubt of its adoption by the people, by a vote equally decisive.

We publish the proceedings of the Republican Convention of Seneca County, held in the town of Fayette on the 26th ult. as well because a num- ber of our papers circulate in that county, as that I it has been requested by several of our Republican , friends, residing there.

Resolved, That we will adhere to those republi- can usages and principles which the experience of wish not to see the institution abandoned. They are conscious that its dissolution seals their political doom, and they strive to preserve the flame that lights them to office and power. Can Republicans unitp themselves with snch a party ?

J ecuted in this suit before the Sheriff\ of the County of Seneca, and a verdict rendered for the Plaintiff for Ticenty- Five Dollars. Those who witnessed the trial were satisfied that the Defendant acted wisely in taking a course which prevented an investigation of his character and conduct ih a court of justice, and before a jury indiscriminately selected. And those who know the man must also know, that though the verdict is small, the Defendant has been visited with a punishment which, to him, is one of more than ordinary severity, and that he has been wonnded in a point in which, above all others, he is the most vulnerable.

Tlie Kentucky Gazette. —This paper, which was formerly edited by Benning, who was murdered by young Wicklifte, has gone into the hands of Mr. George Trotter. In his address to the public he u- ses the following spirited and fearless language— language wliich shows that he is ready to die a martyr to the freedom of political opinion, and the liberty of the press: \ Its location, the fall of its former editor, the im- pression made on the public mind that a free press cannot be sustained in this town, claims from them their firm and unwavering support. That an ed- itor, who in the late contest, had nobly advocated the rights of the people, should fall with/impunity by the hand of violence, is a reproach upon the character of our state. The friends of this paper, and the friends to the Jackson cause, instead of cowering under the powers of disappointed ambi- tion, or making a cowardly surrender of a press that has vindicated their cause and aided in their triumphs, should stand forth like freemen, and with redorbled ardor sustain its editor.\ \ The Geneva Gazette, (says the Buffalo Pat- riot,) expresses its gratification on seeing the cause of Anti-Political Anti-Masonryhstgaininggrouni,\ and adds, that \ a man must be blind to the signs of tbe times to make such an assertion.\ We will only reply, that the man who does not know ty ; and that we w ill not now depart from them to gratify the unreasonable ambition of our political opponents. Resolved, That the protection afforded by the existing Tariff'to American manufactures und A- merican husbandry, is in accordance with the sound policy of the nation aud calculated to pro- mote the prosperity and happiness of its citizens. ADDRESS. Fellow Citizens —At a time when a lethargy seems to prevail, calculated to weaken that ener- gy and action which has given to the party we support, an ascendency in the councils of tbe state i and nation, we feel it a duty to awaken you to a sense of the danger incident to such a state of se- curity, and to press upon your attention some con- siderations connected with the approaching elec- tion. . Surely when every effort is making by the ene- mies of our principles and cause, we should be aroused to action, and to the necessity of continu- ed vigilance and unremitted exertion. Bv the suffrages of a large majority of the peo- ple of this union, our present Chief Magistrate has been called to the c\«rvated station he now oc- cupies, with credit to himself and advantage to the country. His early devotion to the principles of tlie revolution, his long tried patriotism, and faithful public services, afforded to the people ev- ery-assurance, that his administration would he vigorous in its character and beneficial in its re- sults. So far as tiniehas permitted the develop- m^irtTrt\ res policy, Itnas Been rrae to ihe prroci- | pies of the Constitution, and the just expectation* of the people; conducted in the spirit of former days, and practically illustrating the theory' and energy of our free institutions. He has removed from office, too long unworthily held, \men who have abused the public confidence, and who hesi- tated not, for their private advantage, to plunder the public treasury. He has fully redeemed the pledge, given the people, and purged our nation- al councils of corruptions and abases, which a long continuance in office is apt to create. For the discharge of these imperative duties be has been most bitterly and malignantly assailed ; and calumnies and misrepresentations unfounded in themseh e<, but published in the hope of weaken- ing his administration, have been disseminated through the union. By these and other means, equally discreditable, his opponents hope to with- draw the support of the people from him and his friends ; but your steady adherence to tho=e prin- ciples, which, in times past, have sustained us, and rendered the republican party powerful and triumphant, will uphold and defend his adminis- tration . In this part of the State, nnder tlie guise of Anti-Masonry, and in the hope of availing them- selves of whatever advantages a moment of ex- citement affords, our federal adversaries an* pn- deatoring to gain the support of many of our re- publican friends. They leave nothing nndone— nothing untried, which affords the remotest hope of attaining their interested and ambitious ends.— They denounce and vilify, as the friend to secret societies, every man who has the firmness to op- pose their.designs ; and call upon yspu, as you val- ue liberty orliappiness, to exalt them to the sta- tion to which they aspire. Be not decayed by profession\. I/0ok well to the lives and political characters of the men who are leaders this in scheme. See if they are as consistent in their conduct as they are fair in their professions. Be not led into an opposition to those long tried and valued principles which have so long sustained ns as a people, by mere pretenders; men,, who, nnder cover of an oppo- sition to the institution of Freemasonry, are aim- ing at power. We invite you to examine attentively the motives and principles of the political Anti-masonic lead- ers of this county, who, nnder the mask of patri- otism are so earnestly grasping at office. They are the same now, that they were last fall, and striving to accomplish their objects by the same un- worthy means. They tell you that it is their earn- est desire to put down Masonry, yet they opposed, last fall, the Anti-masonic candidate for Governor, Solomon, Southwick, and the Anti-masonic candi- date for L^eutentmt Governor, John Crary. These regularly nominated candidates were thrust aside by their professed Anti-masonie friends in this county, to make room for candidates of a certain political character, without reference to any other considerations.- This year, in the county of Onta- rio, the leaders of ihe same, party have selected, as their candidate for Assembly, Ffujcis Granger, who, last year, refused to nm as the Anli-masonic candidate for Governor. Mr. Granger is no more an Anti-mason new than he was last fall. He is a known advocate of the pretensions of Henry Clay, one of the highest Masons in tpe United States, as a candidate for tbe next presidency, and yet he is I selected by the men who affect snch a horror of our assertion to be true, must be pitifully ignorant I jjasonrv, as their champion. This year, of public opinion and of what is passing- around j have commenced their operations in this c< public opinion and of what is passimj him; and his moral perceptions must be sadly perverted, who asserts the contrary to be the fact. Should the cause of political anti-masonry continue to lose ground as fast as it has for the last six months, in less than one year \ the.places which now know it, will know it no more for ever.\ GENEVA PRICE CURRENT.

HARRIS USHER, Ch'n. JOHN MONTGOMERY, Scc'y A SUGGESTION.—While a general, and as we trust, an effectual effort is making to produce an entire abandonment of the use of ardent spir- its, it may not be improper to inquire whether there are not other practices equally useless, dis- I gristing and dangerous, which not only pass with- out censure, but are considered by many as actual- ly beneficial, and as essentially contributing to the vigor of the body and the energies of the mind. We allude more particularly to the very common and even fashionable practices of SMO- KING =\~I CHEWINC TOBACCC^-prnctices which have their origin in that strange find unac- countable caprice which distinguishes, and we may add, degrades our species. It is unquestionably trne that the immoderate, or even the moderate habitual use of tobaeeo, exercises a most pernicious and disastrous influence upon the constitution. It is the opinion of eminent physicians that a large proportion of those diseases denominated pulmo- nary or consumptive, of all other disorders the most protracted and incurable, are caused either by smoking or chewing, particularly the former. \ lam well convinced,\ says a distinguished med- ical professor, \ that smoking and chewing injure ultimately the hearing, smell, taste and teeth.\— While like intemperance in the use of intoxicating liquors they mow down their victims with a merci- less rapacity, they are attended^ with pecuniary sacrifices which produce a vast amount of individ- ual poverty and distress, and which waste away the moral, physical and financial energies of tlie nation. The immoderats use of ardent spirits and tobacco not only lead to tfie same fearful and fatal ronsequpnw, but it is bpTteved that on examina- tion they will be found to have their origin in the same unfortunate and humiliating propensity of our nature. While public opinion is aroused to the correction of public morals, it should explore, ex- pose and if possible cut off all tlie sources of evil, that while resisting one vice we may not be o\ er- whelmed with another MARRIED, On the 1st inst. by Cephas Shekell, Esq.

Geneva, Cth October, lr\29. 61) A Yve\tt.a,rk.a\>\c iiure of R HEUMATISM! by the use of Dr. J EBB'S RHEUM A TIC LINIMENT— Copy of a Letter. \ Charlestowtr, Ms. June 23, 1827. \To the Proprietor of Dr. Jebb's Liniment. \ Dear Sir—I deem it a duty I owe to safibrkig humanity, to acquaint you,, and through you the public (should you think best) of the unexpected and surprising cure performed on myself by the use of the above most excellent Medicine. I have been for more than thirty years, and, sometimes, most severely afflicted with the rheumatism; fre- qui'ntly rendered perfectly helpless, juad in conse- quence confined to n>y bed, when it has required two persons to move me, being in such extirmc pain ; I have se\ eral times been under the care nt* the u.ost eminent physicians, but procured only temporary relief. I one day noticed the adver- tisement of Dr. Jebb's Liniment, with the testi- monials accompanying it. and was induced to try a bottle, which I used without much sensible ben- efit. I concluded, however, to -persevere, and bought anotner bottle, and was greatly relieved, and by the use of half the third bottle, was whol- ly cured, and have never since had a return of »•• pain, which I had not been free from a month at a time for thirty years, and it is now more than three years since I was cored. I would most ear- nestly advise every person snfiering under this painful complaint, not to despair of u core so long as they can obtain \ Doct. Jebb's Liniment,\ You are at liberty to make any use of this you may thiuk advisable. Most respectfully yonre, CALEB SYMMES. To tlie foregojngTestimpny, many other un- questionable^pwJofs might be added, in favor of the superior Liniment of Dr. Jebb. Nothing but a fair trial, which the proprietor confidently soli- cits, can give an adequate idea of its unrivalled efficacy, in mitigating, and thoroughly mastering the excruciating disease, to which it has been successfully applied in a multitude of cases. The operation of the Liniment is often immediate; and it has frequently cured rheumatic affections of years' standing, in four and twenty hours. It is also reeommeuded with confidence, as\one of the best applications known for stiffness of the joint, numbness, sprains and chilblains-. Price 50 cents. tt? Dyspepsia, or Indigestion. This prevalent disorder, as it exhibits itself in its customary symptoms of want of appetite, distressing flatulencies, heart-burn, pain in &e stomach, sick, headache, nausea, vomiting and eostivevess, is now found to yield to the tried efficacy of Oottor Selfe's VEGETABLE SPECIFIC, &; Anti-BiliousPilk. These two preparations combined, constitute an efficacious remedy for the Dyspepsia even after it has acquired the most obstinate character, and re- sisted every effort of professional drill. When both medicines are administered in connexion, ac- cording to plain and particular directions aecoirf- panying the Vegetable Specific, they thoroughly cleanse the alimentary canal of that viscid mucus which is tbe proximate cause of the disorder, and as a tonic and stimulant, they restore the healthy action and energy of the stomach, and strengthen the debilitated system. The proprietor can also confid'-ntly recommend the Vegetable [Specific as one of the best remedies known for the Sick Head Ache. Price 50 cents each box. British Antiseptic Dentifrice, For cleansing, whitening and preserving the Teeth and Gums, —The British Antiseptic DBSTOTUCE, which the present proprietor wishes most particu- larly to recommend to the attention of .the. pnhlic, is perfectly exempt from all those ttetds' which in general form the basis of tooth- powders ih com- mon use, and which, although they may whiteD the teeth for a short time, m'ust inevitably destroy the enamel by their deleteridtss action on this beautiful covering of the teeth. The, consequence is that tlie enamel, which is the shield provided by nature to protect the spongy and nervnne internal structure, is rapidly corroded by fifese acid ingre- dients, becomes more discolored than ever, and ex- poses the inner portion of the tooth to caries, and a rapid and certain decay. By the use oTft&e' Bri- tish Antiseptic Dentifrice, in the ntonuhg/as oc- casion may requre, with a brush moderately hrird, and cold vyater, the accumulation of tartar will not only he prevented, but the teeth fender- . ed beautifully and permanently' white, aTr/J the ( gams restored to that freedom from soreness, that, hardness and eiilorescence which ate the true tests. of their healthy statey and the test guarantee of that natural fragrance of the bresifh V^btch can never be expected in connexion viiffat foul teeth, and scorbutic, unhealthy gums.
