Mr. Blaine, in his entertaining " Twenty Years of Congress," thus speaks of GeDeral' ('ass, the Democratie Presidential candidate, who led his party to disastrous defeat ín the election of 1848 : " The Democratie candidate was a man o f high character. He had served creditably in the early part of the war of 1812, liad been Governor of Michigan Territory from 1813 to 1831, had been five years Secretary of War under General Jackson and had gone to France as Minister ia 1836. He remained at the Court of Louis l'hilippe, where he received minute consideration forsix years. When he returned to thieountry in 1842, at sixty years of age, he undoubtedly intended to re-enter political Ufe." Popular ovations wcre arranged for hiiu as he journeyed westward, and by the time he reached hi home in Detroit General Cass was publicly recognized as a ¦ date for the Presidency. " By remaining in the field as a candidate," eays Mr. Blaine, " he deeply wounded Mr. Van Buren, disregarded a personal and political friendship of thirty years' duration and sundered ties which ufe was too short to re-unite." In the end Mr. Van Buren's enmity dtfeated General Cass when he obtained the nomination in 1848. -- The dd statesman will always have a warm placo in the heart of the people oi Michigan, becaose of his many services in her behalf and because of the lustre which he shed apon her. She has had no Presidential candidate since, and the outlook for her having one in the near future is not promising. Cassopolis has been naraed after him, and so long as that thrifty town prospera and grows his many virtues will be extolled. It is in Casiopolis that Mr. Smith Wooden lives, whoe name is mentioned here because he is the author of the following interesting letter : " Nothing has erer reliered my wife oi rheumatism and neuralgia so rauch Athlophoros. I always keep it in the house and cheerfully reeommend it to others." An equally good opinión of themedi is eipressed by Charles Latourett, M Bradley, as follows : " I would say in favor of Athloplioroe that one bottle entirely cured me of rhenmatism which had been treated by BOme ot our best physicians without avail. lian highly recommend it to all suflering fivm the same disease." G. Wiesinger & Son, druggists, of Adrián, report this gratifying case : "Last fall, along about November , we sold a man a bottle of Athlopboros lor his father, who had not walked more than two or three blocks at a time in about two years. After taking one bottle of the modïcine he walked down to our store, whiUi is very nearly two miles from his house, and purchased the second bottle himsell'. This was four daya from flie time b. commenced taking Athlophoros. He taken five bottles of the medicine and says he thinks he is entirely free from rheuniatism. The gentleman is in the neightwrhood of sixty yearsof age and lookshealthy and robust now."
