COLUMBUS, GEORGIA, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1858. THE LIVER INVIGORATOR, PREPARED BY DR. S A N D F O R D, COMPOUNDED ENTIRELY FROM GUMS. IS one of the best Purgative and Liver Medicine now before the public, that acts as a Cathartic, easier, milder, [and more effectual than any other medicine known. It is not only a cathartic, but a Liver Remedy, acting first on tbe Liver to eject its morbid matter, then on the Stomach and Bowels 19 carry oft the matter, thus {accomplishing |two purposes effec t ually, without any of the painful fee lings experienced in theoperation of most “Ohathar tics. It strengthens the system at the same time that it purges it; and when taken daily in moderate do ses, will strengthen and build up with unusual rapidity. The Liver is one oi the principal regula tors ot the humanbb- ’dy; and when it per forms itslfunctionswelJ, r the powers of the sys tem are fully develop-(ed.

The Secretary was compelled to decline in consequence of the pressure of his official engagements, which demand his immediate presence in Washington. Blockade of Laguayra and Porto Cabello. —The schr. Peerless, arrived at Baltimore, brings the important intelligence that two British steam frigates and a French war vessel had blockaded the Ven ezuelan ports of Laguayra and Porto Cn bello, and seized a number of vessels in each. This measure, says the American, has been threatened lor sometime, but it was scarcely believed that it would be real ly carried out by the allied naval forces. The difficulty has originated ostensibly from the following circumstances: When the recent revolution occurred in Venezuela by which theMonagas family were deposed, President Monagas placed himself under the protection of the English and French. Consuls. The successful party in Vene zuela, disregarding this protection, seized Monagas and proceeded to try him for va rious high crimes, including malfeascence in office and the corrupt appropriation of the public funds for the purpose of enriching hisown family and partizans. The British and French representatives protested against this trial as a violation of the right of asylum, and an insult to their re spective nations, and this protest being dis. legarded, they have proceeded to enforce it. It is difficult, with our present comprehen sion of the affair, to understand upon what ground ti e right of ihe allies to protect Monagas is founded. lie was elected President under the laws of the Republic, and is rightly amenable to those laws for an abuse of his trust. Certainly neither Eng land nor France would attempt to enforce such a claim against a nation sufficiently powerful to resent their interference. A Terrible Tornado in Ulster County —Two Ladies Killed, One Fatally Injur ed, and Three Children very Seriously. —A terrible tornado recently visited the town of Denning’ Ulster County, it began 1 at Devvittville, and took its course westward to a place called Smithville, about live miles distant, tearingyip trees, and leveling almost every thing in its course. At Dewitt ville,the house of Mr. J. Smith and that of Mr. Iloyt, were blown down. There was no one in the latter house at the time, Mrs. Hoyt and her three children being on a visit at the house of Mr. Smith. Mrs. H. was instant ly killed, and Mrs. Smith so badly injured that she died in five hours. A lady named Mrs. I limbeck, who was also in the house, was so seriously injured that her life is dispared of. The three children ofMr.Hoyt were also badly injured. Mr. Smith was in this city at the time of the accident. The tornado passed on its course toward Smith ville, but whether any more lives were lost, or property destroyed we are unable yet to learn. Encouragement.— Reverdy Johnson, of Baltimore, lias written Judge Douglas a letter on tlie present attitude of the can vass in Illinois, in which he expresses the strong hope that Douglas may succeed in defeating his enemies. The leitcr seems to have been spontaneous, but Douglas pub lishes it with evident feelings of satisfaction. It looks very much as if the little, giant is in need of consolation and encouragement. —Richmond South. JKsf-We invite our readers to the perusal of DR.
