I do this the more readily in regard to Ifootland's

years, under the impression that they were.chietly an
alcoholic mixture. lam indebted to my friend Rob

by proper tests, and for encouragement to try them,
when suffering from great and long continued debili

ginning of the present year, was followed by evideht
relief, and restoration to a degree of bodily and men

This class of Bitters has caused and will continue to

kept continfially under the influence of Alcoholic Stim

all the virtues of froofland's Bitters in connection with

that a very large proportion are suffering from debili

Ileolland's German Bitters. Diseases resulting from
disorders of the digestive organs are speedily . removed.
We have no hesitation in stating that, if these Bitters
were freely used among our soldiers, hundreds of lives
might be saved that otherwise Will be lost. I

PIIMADELNITA, August 23rd, 1862.,
Messrs. Jones & gentlemen, your Roof
laturs German Bitters has saved my life. There is no
mistake in th is. It is vouched for by numbers of my
comrades, some of whose name are - appended, and who
were fully cognizant of till the circumstances of my
cusp I am, and have been for the lase fitur years, a
member of shermants „felebrated battery,. and .under
the immediate command of Captain It; B. Ayres—
Through the exposure attendant upon my arduous du
ties. I was attacked in November last with inflammation
of the lungs, and was for seventy-two days in the hos
pital. This was followed by great debility, heighten
ed by an attack of dysentery. I was then removed
from the:White Rouse, and sent to GAS city on board
the Steamer "State of Maine." from which I lauded
on the 25th of Jima. Since that time I have been a
bout as low as any one could be and still retain a spark
of vitality. For a week or moral was scarcely able to
swallow anything, and if I did force a morsel down', it
was immediately thrown up agaitt, . .•
I could not even keep a - glass of water on my stom
ach. Life could not lest under these , ciremilstances
and, accordingly, the physic:Mosotho had been, work
ing faithfully, though inisucethisfully"; to rescue roe
from the grasp of the dead Archer, frankly told me
they could do no more for me, and advised me to see
a - clergyman; and to Make such disposition of my limi
ted funds as best suited me. An acquaintance who
visited me at the hospital, Mr. Frederick Steinbron,
Sixth below Arch Street, advised me, as a forlorn
hope, to try your Bitters, and kindly preeured a bob
tle . From the time I commenced taking them the
gloomy shadow of death receded, and 'I ant now, thank
God for it, getting better. Though I have bet taken
two bottles. I have gained teatpounds, and I feel San
guine of being permitted to rejoin my wife and daugh
ter, from whom I have heard nothing for 18 months:
for, gentlemen, I am a loyal Virginian, from the vieln.

the certainty of life which has taken the place of vague

AND THE FRIENDS OF SOLDIERS
LEBANON, PA.,. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1863.
I'll tell you of a fellow,
Of a fellow I have seen,
Who is neither white nor yellow,
But is altogether green ;
And his name it is .not charming,
It is only common Bill,
And he wishes me to wed him,
Bui I hardly think I will.
Oh, he whispered of devotion,
Of devotion pure and deep,
And it seemed so very silly,
That I almost fell asleep ;
And he thinks it woobibs pleasant,
As we journey down the hill,
To go hawed in hand together,
Butt hardly think I will
He told me of a cottage,
or a cottage, 'monk the trace,'
And don't yoitthialt the fellow
Tumbled down upon bra knew'
While.the tears the fallow Wasted
Were enough to turn a mill,
And be begged me to accept him,
But k hardly think I will.
Ile was here last night to see me,
Bet he made so long a stay,
/began to think the likalkhead
Never meant to goal , * ;
At first I learned to hate him,
And I know I hate him stil I,
Yet he urges ma to wed hit,
But I hardly think I will. •
I'm sure I would oot diocese him,
But the very define is in It, .
For he says ill refuse him,
lie could riot live a initiate;
Now you know the blessed Bible
Plainly says you must not kill,
so I've thought the matter over,
.And I ruiner thin* I
THE MANIAC DOCTO.
It must be.confessed that it is very
proioking thing to receive -a letter
on Christmas morning, calling you
two hundred miles away on "ichtne
diate and ipiportant business." Yes,
it is a very-provoking thing indeed—
at least,. so I found it., both in antici
pation and in very deed ; but there
was no help for it. Snooks, my law
yer, wrote fed told me that if on the
25tts, I was not it C—, I should
probably lose--never mind what; but
; something which induced me „to puek
my portmanteau in all haste, send
for a Itandsom, and drive for the X.
Y. Z. Station. When I arrived there
I found I was. too late for,.the train I
had wished to catch, • and that the
next, one did not start for three guar
, ters of an hour. Inwardly cursing
my ill fortune, I werit to the waiting
room, and endeavored to make my
self as comfortable as I could; but,
despite all my attempts, I think I
never knew time to pass ,so slowly in
all my life, except a certain twenty
`minutes abotit which I am goipg to
very slowly nevertheless it did go : ;
and, in process of time, I found my
self snugly ensconced in a first class
carriage, which had but one. occupant
besides myself, a cheerful looking lit
tle old man, with gray hair and a
strange, restless look 'about the eyes.
Directly I get into the carriage he
addressed me in a familiar way:..
tA. merry Christmas to you..
=The same to you,' said I, rather
gruffly, awl was not in the best of'
humor, and did not feel inelined° to
hecheerful and neighborly.
'Why, bless me, sir V. said the little.
old _man, renewing the .attack, - 'you
have.not any thing wherewith to keep
yourself warm on this cold winter's
day ; allow me to offer you one of my
traveling wrappers. 1 alWays take
care to be well provided with such
'things when I go on a journey!—
And my companion 'took from his'
side a rolled up rug, unfolded it, and,
taking a small mahogany box from
the folds, threw the rug to me.
'Thank you, sir,' said I, feeling in
spite of myself a shade more cheer.
:Oh, no thanks—no thanks.; 1. do
it for my own benefit, not yours,
' 'How do you make that out ?'.
'Why, I like to have a comfoitahle
face opposite me;
and, besides, the
grand experiment, you know.' '
'What grand experiment ?' I 'aid,
somewhat startled by the man's ex
cited manner. •

oring violently, 6only=that is to say

'Not a Freemason ? Why, bless
me! you ought most certainly to be
'Because giou would then know
that they he got sort of—that is
to say—in fact, a secret.'
'I know that,aiready.' .
'Really? I declare you are the
most extraordinary man 'I ever met.
Well, _l've got a secret, too, and that
my grand experiment.
'As it's a secret, I suppose you will
not tell me what•it is r
'Oh, yes, I will though, bui—per

I'll tell you ; it is-simply . this, to dis

truth, I don't myself know whether
lam justified in calling. it tin experi:

the present. May I ask where you
aro .going to ?'
'Have you any friends there ?'
'None, lam sorry to say. I am
called there on some disagreeable

'Then may I have the pleasure of
your company to dinner when you

'And when are , we due at C--.?'
'At half fast six ; I believe'
'Thank yltiu.' -
Thus, for time, our conversation
ended, but .e often renewed, it again,
and I bega to regard my companion
as a clever, tindhearted, though rath

Some tint after we ,

himself for a sleep, and was - soon

were troubled. , First of all I dream
ed I was betig'hung ; then that I
was beingendeuffed ;' and last of all,
that a .grci ..,'e
eigkt.was upon Me, and
that something was pressing heavily
upon my cheat. I then woke with a
start, to find myself bound hand and,
foot, with 4 rope passed round my
neck, and &stoned to the umbrella
rack behin4 in such a manner' that
if I struggled in the least I should in
evitably choice myself; and •my fel
low travel lei was standing over me,
with one, kat) on my, chest.
'What areyou doing ?' said I ; but
my sentencv3was cut ;hurt by a gag,
which my el:Centric friend thrust in.
to my mouth' and tied behind my
bead.. Re (ien stood away to look
at his handitork, with eyes glaring
like those of a, wild beast, and his

should be relieved from the horrible
death which now seemed imminent;
but as I had been dozing , some time
before I. went regularly off to sleep, I
found that I could not in the least re

After some time spent in preparing
his instruments, my persecutor began
to prepare me by unbuttoning my
waistcoat and baring, my breast. At
length everything seemed to be to
his satisfaction, and he, took up a
sharp keen Waded knife. I shall nem.

felt a cold shudder'run through my
'body, and I longed to close my eyes,
but, they seemed to keep open by a
horrible facination. After trying the
edge of the knife, and preparing a
cloth, and givingone final look to his
instruments, my eccentric friend press
ed his finger close above my heart,
and said :
'This is how I am.going to manage
it, my friend: lam going to cut a
circle in thefiesh, above the heart,
with this, knife ; it will not hurt much
as 1 shall only just cut -through-the
skin, and the knife is exceedingly
sharp.: I ,shall then proceed to dig
deeper with this, instrument, and fi
nally extract the heart.with this.'
The reader, may imagine mysensa

we'ye go t a female sewtukirele,

was drafted. One 'young man who
was drawcd, claimed to be oxemp be
cause he was the sop of a . widow'd

able bodied dead men were drafted,
but whether their heirs will haVe to

will go' to Canady stoppin' .on their

But to return to our subjeek.—
With our recent grate triumphs on
the Mississippi, the Father of Waters
(and them is waters no. Father need

and the cheerin' look of things in.oth

any Muslim of, Harts.. And what;
upon airth do the people . of Concord,
N. H., want a Muslum of Harts for ?
Ain't you got the Bt4te House new,
and what more do you want ?
Butt all this is: fuarin-to. the pur

A GOOD STORY.
In the i - Editor's Drawer of Harper's
Magazine, was die following good story
of Illinois soldiers and an Illinois Colonel
—the latter Col. Oglesby, well known to
'Well, one day his fife and drum ma
jors went out into the woods to practice
a new tune.:, Attracted no doubt. by the
el ivitiekcame near—alas ! for the safety
ofish own bacon too near—for our base
drummer, 'by a,change of base,' made a
base attack on his front ; while• the .fifer
by ,a bold, and ,rapid, flank movement
charged in the• rear. ,'T was soon over ;
a few well directed volleys of clubs and
other persuasives were applied and piggy
went dead again a martyr to his love for
music ! But how to get the deceased
porker to camp 1 'That's what's the
matter now. After considerable discus
sion, an idea struck the drummer (not so
as to hurt him f] 'Well. put , him in.the
drum, just the thing by.hokey,' said e. th
fifer. One head was taken out, the -hog
stowed;in, and our heroes started for
camp, their drum between them. In the
meantime the regiment - were out for dress
parade, and the Colonel somewhat per
plexed at the absence of his principal mu
sicians, no sooner saw the gents. than in
a voice of reprimand, he ordered them to
take their place with the music. The
drum bearers halted, looked at each oth
er, then at thif Colonel, bul said never a
word. The Col. repeated his order in a
style .so emphatic that it could not be
misunderstood. The dealers in pork felt
a crisis had arrived, and that an explana
tion had become 'a military necessity:—
So . the drummer going up close to the
Col, madelilin acquainted with the.state
of affairs, winding up with 'we 'low, Col.
onel, 'to, bring the best quarter over to
your mess.' 'Sick, eh l'-,,thundered the,
Colonel, 'why didn't you say so at first.?
Go to your quarters i—of course ! Bat T ,

fresh pork for,supper.

Maatutie.—The marraiges of the princess

be effected, deserves special 'notice. 11

generally married,, the father seeks a hus

court.= If a young man specially. pleases•
her, he. is given the , rank, of lieutenant

The chosen man receives in-addition a
magnificent, fully furnished ~palace and
sixty thou Sand piasters a month pocket
money ; and in addition his father, in-law
defrays all the housekeeping, expenses.
The bridegroom is not always ,over and
above ~pleased at: being selected: If he be
married he is obliged to get a divorce ;
he must never have a wife or mistress in:'
addition to a princess ; and, moreover, he
is regarded as the servant rather than
the husband of his wile. The' Sultan,
himself announaes.to him his, impending,
good fortune, and it, is his boiandenduty
to bow reverennallv , kiss, the , , Sultan's
