From .Rev. J. Newton Brown, D. D., Editor of the En

Although not disposed to favor or recommend Pat

sopa why a man may not testify to the benefits be be
lieves himself to have tees ived from any simple-prep
aration, in the hope that he may thus contribute to the
benefit of others.
I do this the more readily in regard to Trooflarid's
German Bitters, prepared by Dr. O. M. Jackson, ofthie
city, because I was prejudiced against them for many
years, under the impression that they were chiefly an
alcoholic mixture. lam indebted to my friend Rob

There are twiny preparations sold tinder the name of
Bitters, put up in quart bottles, compounded of the
cheapest whiskey or common rum, costing from 20 to
40 cents per gallon, the taste disguised by Anise or
Coriander Seed. •
This class of Bitters has caused' and will continue to
00116 P as long as they can be sold, hundreds to die the
death of the drunkard. By their use the system is
kept continually under the influence of Alcoholic Stim
ulants o f the worst kind, the, desire for Liquor is crea
ted and kept upoind the result is all the horrors at
tendant upon a drunkard's life and death.
For those who desire and wiio,4qoc,a. Liquor Bitters,
we publish the folloning receipt. Set One Beale Hoof
lanq's Genna Bitters and mix with Three Quarts sf
Good Brandy or_ lVhiskey. and the result will be a prep
aration that will far excel in medicinal virtues and
true excellence any of the numerous Liquor Bitters in
the market, anti will cost much - less. You will have
all the v irtues , of HnojlantVs Bitters in connection with
assed article of , Liquor, at a much less price than
these inferior preparations Will coat ycia.
We call the attention of all having. relations and
friends In the army to the fact that -1100FLAND'S
German tters" •w ill cure nine tenths of the diseases
induced by exposures and privations incident "to camp
life. In the lists, published almost daily in the news
papers, on the arrival of the s'cif, it will be noticed
that a very large proportion are suffering front debili
ty. Every case of that kind can be readily cared by
Hoofland'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.
• We call particular attention to the following re
markable and well authenticated cure of one of the
nation's heroes, whose life, to use his own language,
"has been saved by the Bitters :"

land's German Bitters has saved my life. There is no
mistake in this. It is vouched fur by numbers of my
Comrades, sums of whose name are appended, and who
were fully cognizant of all the circumstances of my
case. I am, and have been fur the last four years, a
member of Sherman's celebrated battery, and under
the immediate command of Captain It. B. Ayres.—
Threugh the exposure attendant upon my nriluoustdiu-,
ties, I was attacked in November last with inflentmaticin
of the lungs, and was for seveuty-two days in the hos
pital. This was followed by great debility, heighten
ed by an attack of dysentery. I was then removed
front the White House, and sent to this city on board
the Steamer "State of Maine." front which I landed
on the 28th ofJune. Since that time 1 have been a-'
bout as low as any one could be and still retain a spark
of Vitality. Fora week or more 1 was scarcelyable to
swallow anything, and if I did force a morsel down,,it
was immediately thrown up again.
I could not even keep a glass of water on my stom•
itch. Life could not last under these circ'untstunces;
and, accordingly, the physicians who had been work.
lug faithfully, though unsuccessfully, to rescue me
from the grasp of the dead Archer, frankly told me
they could do so more for me, and, advised me to see
a clergyman , and to make such disposition of my limi
ted funds as best suited me. Au acquaintance who
visited me at the hospital, Mr. Frederick Steinbrun,
Sixth below Arch Street,.advised rue, as a forlorn.
hope, to try 3our Bitters, and kindly precured whot
tie. From the time 1 commenced taking them the
gloomy shadow of death receded, and I. am now ; thank
Hod for it, getting better. Though I have but taken
two bottles. t have gained ten pounds, and I feel san
guine of being jammed to rejoin my wife and daugh
ter, from whom I have heard nothing for 18 mouths:
for, gentlemen, I am a loyal Virginian, from the vicin
ity of Front Royal. To your invaluable Bitters I owe
the certainty of life which has taken the piece of vague
car e —to your Bitters will I owe the glorious privilege,
fof again clasping to my bosom those who are dearest to
me in life., Very truly yours, ISAAC MALONE.
We fully concur in the truth of the above statentent,
as we had despaired of seeing our comrade, Mr. Malone,
restored to health.

'F'shaw ! you're a fool, - .Tacqucal'

'Well, there, Jacques,' Jeanette
we'd, generally wind up, with a, kiss,
'you are a dear good sou& so you aro;
and if you'll only prom*: to love . me
best, you' may keep 130 . 61 long as
you like,'
This kind - of
,colloquy generally
took place - as often as once, some•
times twice, a week—Joanette be.
ginning with a firm determination to
get rid of the dog, and ending with
her permission for him to remain as
long as his master might think proper.
The subject of this family bicker
ing was a very sagacious animal, who
behaVed himself as all gentlemanly
dogs should. His master did not
stretch the trutti.a great deal, when
he said that Bobon knew as much as
himself or wife—for the dog was a
remarkable dog, and would seem to
comprehend many things like a ration
al human being. For instance, du.
ring the wrangle about himself, he
would steal sorrowfully away, under
the bed or under the table, and there,
with his large, bright, noble-looking
brown eyes fixed earnestly upon the
contending parties, would seem to
listen anxiously for the conclusion ;
and then, if
to himself, as
it generally he would come forth
wagging his tail, and"look up cheer
fully, almost LIUMANLY, into the faces
of both.
Time rolled On, France became as
a troubled ocean, and a perfect:tor.
nado of human passion swept" adly
over the Ship of State. TheTgood
but vacillating King Master w:l6' put
under hatches, and a monstrous and
bloody Insanity took the helm, and
ran the old," leaky and crime-laden
vessels upon the breakers of -faction,
whets she speedily became a wreck,
and engulfed hundreds, of. thousands
of human beings who bad -embarked

inn on the table and -looking up a
gain at the clock, Jeanette was sur
prised to perceive the_, minute hand
had passed the hour without Jacques
being present.
'What can detain him; she mur
mured, with , a strange dread of - evil
creeping over her, as she hurried to
the 'door and looked anxiously
the Street. 'Not to be seen either,'
she continued, with nervous anxiety;
'what, can it mean ? Mon Dieu! if
they should haVe taken him away to
prison I' and Jeanette dasped her
hands upon her heart, and 'staggered
back into the bouse.
Five, ten, fifteen minutes passed a-,
way, - and yet no Jacques. This sus.
pense was not to be borne ; better
the reality, however .fearful; some
thing terrible must have happened ;
and throwing a light shawl over her
head, Jeanette flew to the smithery.
The doors were onenthe 'fire was
burning—but no Jacques was there.
She made hurried and anxious ioqui

scarcely beeded her; for that.was not
a judicious time for persons to know

'As I feared, he has been taken to

But it was not so easy for the 'Oh-,
happy Jeanette to follow the missing
Jacques, simply because she knew
not where to go; and no one, not even
the old woman could tell her
be bad been taken. So:she finally
went home in great distress, to wait
for another day, or some tidings of
him ; but.she bad scarcely entered
the house, when she heard 'Bobon
scratching and whining at the door.
The moment she admitted him, be
flew to his master's vacant seat at the
table, put his forepaws upon. it, look
ed up sorrowfully in her face, and
gave - utterance to a tow mournful
'Where is your master, Bobonr
said Jeanette,' bursting into tetw.
The dog jumped. down, with a
slight bark, and ran to the door.
It then occurred to Jeanette to kit .
him out and follow him. This she
did, and he led her to the massive
gate of the-main prison of Bourdeaux.
Tremblingly she-knocko at tbe gate;
and of the porter who opened the
wicket, she inquired if Jacques `Pier
rot was confined within. The man
gruffly-replied that he didn't know,
and didn't care to*kno‘.v, and advised
the fair questioner to go about her
business. •
Thus repulsed poor Jeanette sat
down by the gate and cried for an

side her all the while , and looking
the sorrow which he bad no language
to express. When ,at last Jeanette
got up and went borne with a heavy
heart, the intelligent animal accom
panied her - to the door, and then
bounded away to take his pOst at,the
prison gate, and watch for an oppor
tunity to get in to his master.
Jeanette passed a sleepless night,
praying for the deliverance of ifim
she loved. The next Morning at day
light she again repaired to the pris=
on, but Bohol) : was not to be seen.=
She made further inquiries for her
husband, and learned he was impris
oned within, but could not be com
municated with till after his trial,
which woad take place whenever
the authorities should see . proper.—
What the charges were against him
her 'informant either did not know or
would not tell. Poor Jeanette after
this remained most of the day at the
gate of the prison, but heard nothing

Jeanette quickly poised the coil in

to one end of it with her , left, sent it
upward, with a sincere prayer, into

she grasped it with both her hands,

felt the cord suddenly loosen ; and
then looking upward, her heart fair

a dark figure upon t he top of the wall.
A minute later, Jacques stood safe

*raenwaan..T.--,On'the 3d day of March 1863,
the Congress of - the United States passed an Act
for "enrolling and calling out the National
forces, and for other purposes," which is com
monly called the Conscription law. The plain
tiffs, who are citizens of Pennsylvania, have set
forth the aetfully in their bills, and they com
plain. that they have been drafted in to the m
tarp service ofthe Government in twittanne . ol
said enactment,. but that the same is nneonatitu
tional and void, and that the defendants, who
'are engaged -in executing it, have violatc4' the
rights and are about to invade the personal lib
erty of the plaintiffs, and therefore they invoke
the equitable interposition of this Court to en.
join the defendants against the further execu
tion of the said Act.
For the jurisdiction of this t Court to set aside
an act of Congress as unconstitutional, and to
grant the 'relief` rayed 'for, 'I refer Myself to the
views of ChiefJhatide In the opinion he has
just deliv'efed in these eases, and I come at once
o:the constitutional question.
The Act begins with It preamb . le Which 'recites
the existing insurrection and rebellion against
the authority of the United States, the duty of
the Government to suppress insurrection and re.
hellion, to guarantee to ench State a republi
can form of government, and to preserve the pub.
lie tranquility, and deolare that for these high
purposes a military force is indispensable, "to
raise and support which all persons ought will
ingly to contribute," and that no service is
more praiseworthy and bun ora.ble than the main
tenante of the Constitution end the Union; and
then goes on to provide for the enrolling of all
the able. bodied:thole citikensof the United States
"and persons of foreign birth, who have declared:
their intention to beconse citizens, beteree'n the
ages of twenty-one. and forty.tve years, and
these able-bodied eltitens and foreigners, with
certain exceptions after Ward enumerated, are
declared "the national foreee,"; nod made liable
to perform military duty when called out by the
President. The act divides the country into
military districts, corresponding with the Con
gressitnal districts„ provides for Provost mar
shals and enrolling boards, and regulates the de
tail of such drafts as the / P resident shall order to
be made from the national forces so enrolled.
The payment of $BOO excuses any drafted per
son, so that it is,' in fact, a law providing for a
oompulsory draft or conscription of such citizens
as are unwillingly or unable to purchase exeinp.
tion at the stipulated priCe. It is the first in
stance, in our history, of legislation forcing, a
great public burthen on the poor. Our State
legislation, which exempts men who are not
worth. $3OO from paying their own• debts, is
in striking contrast with this Conscription law,
which devolves upon such men the bonbon
which belong to the whole "'national forces,"
and to which "all persons 'ought willingly to
contribute." This, howeVer is an "objeetion to
the spirit ef the enactment rather titan its con
The discription of persons to be enrolled able
bodied citizens, between twenty and forty-five
years of age, is substantially the diseription of
the militia as defined in our Pennsylvania statutes
and probably in the Statutes of all the States.
The national forces, then, mean the militia of
the States--eerta inly include the militia of
Pennsylvania. This expression-, 'national for
ces," is moderniatiguage, when 'so applied. It is
not found in ,our Constitutions, either Sta
- ,&;01 . :"" -; "'"-- 1 'onitiftat" 'aired our stance
ing army. At Is a total misnomer when applied
to the militia, for the militia is a State institu
tion. The General 'Government has no militia.
Th'e State militia, always highly esteemed as one
of the toilwarks o f our liberties, recognized in
the Federal Constitution, and it, is not in the
power of Congress to obliterate them or to merge
them 'in "national forces."
Unless there is more magic in a name than
has ever been supposed; this conscript law was
intended to act upon the State militia, and oar
question is, therefore whether Congress has pow
er to impress or draft the tof ilitia of the State. I
cannot perceive what objection can be taken to
this statement of the question, for surely it will
not be argued that calling the militia national
forces makes them something else than militia.
If Congress did not mean to draft the militia un
der this" law, where did they expect to find the
national forces? "4114ble.bodied white male
citizens between the ages-.of twenty.ono and
forty-five years, residing in- th ia State, and not
exempted by the laws .of ztlip United States,"
with certain specified exceptions, constitute our
State militia. Will it be said that the conscript
law was not intended to operate on these ? I
think it will not. Then if it does tench, and
was framed' and designed to draft this very class
of citizens, no possible objection can betaken to
the above statement of the questian vre have to
thereore, repeat the question with greet
confidence in its accuracy, has Congress the
constitutionalpower to impress or draft into the
military service of the United States the militia
men of Pennsylvania?
This question has to be answered by the Con-
Motion of the United States, because that
instrument framed by deputies of the people of
the Statet and ratified and put into effect by the
States themselVes in their respective °operate
capanities, deligates to Congress all tho'powers
that body can exercise. These delegations _are
either express or such implications as are easifn.
00 to the execution of expressly delegated
There are but three provisions in the Constitu
tion of the United Stotts that can be appealed to
in support of this legialatino. In ordinary edi
tions they stand numbered as dances 13,16 apd
11' of the VIII section of Act i, of the Constitu
tion :
"13. Congress shall have power t o raise and
support armies, -but no apppriatious of money
to. that use shall he for a longer term than two
"13. Congress shall have power to provide
for ealliog forth the militia to. execute the -laws
of the Union, to suppress insurrection and repel
"17. Contrast( shati have power to provide
for orgeniting, arming and disciplining the
militia, and for governing snob part of them as
may be employed in the service Of the United
States, reserVing to the States respectively the
appointment of the officers, and the authority of
training the Militia according to the discipline
prescribed by Congress."
"To raise armies"-these ate large words
What do they mean ? There could be no limita
tion upon the number or size of the armies to be
raised, for all possible contingencies could not
be foreseen ; but our question has not reference
to numbers or size, but to the mode of raising
armies. The framers of the Constitution, and
the States who adopted it, derived their ideas of
government principally from the example of
Great Britain—certainly not from any of the
more imperial anti despotic governments of the
earth. What they meant to make was a more
free Constitution than that of Great Britain—
taking that as a model in some things—hut en
larging the basis of popular rights in all respects
that would be consistent with order and stability.
They knew that the British army had generally
been recruited by voluntary enlistments, stimu
lated by wages and bounties, and that the few
Instances of impressments and forced conscrip
tions of land forces had met Vi ith the disfavor of
the English nation and had left to preventive
statutes. In 1704, and again in 1807, conscrip
tion bills were - attempted in Parliamerft but laid
aside as unconstitutional- During the American
' evolution a statute, 19 Geo 11 - I C: 70, permit.:
ted the impressment of "idle and disorderly psi.
sons not following any .lawful trade or having
some substance sufficient for their subeistsoce,"
and this was its far as English legislatiob bad
gone When our Federal Constitution wig planned:

States and the people thiettower of originatink
war was committed, but even .in their hands it
was restrained by the limifatitin of biennial ap
prpriations for the support of the aftniee the:) ,
might raise. Of course, no army could be raised
or supported which did pot commend popular
approbation, and it was rightly considered that
voluntary enlistments would never be wanting
to rectu it the ranks of such an army. The war
power, existing only for the protection of the
people, and left, as fares it was possible to leave
it, in their own hands, was incapable of bat
used without their consent, and therefor, non t. 6
never languish for enlistmeuts. They would be
ready enough to recruit the rank's of any army
they deemed necessary to their safety. Thus
the theory of the Constitution placed this great
power, like other governmental powers, directly
upon the consent of the governed.
The theory itself was foentied on free and fair
elections—which are the fundardental postulate
of the Constitution- If the patronage and power
of the Government shall ever be employed to
control pOpulareitections, the.nominal represen
tatives of - ttle:paciple may cease to he their" real
reefratiettatives, and the armies .which may be
raised may alit so noattitardi 'Palk confidence
as to attract the 'necessary recruits, arid then
conscript lairs and other extra edastithtional ea
pedients may become necessary to fill the ranks.
But governmental interference with popular•
elections will be subversion of the Constitution ,
and no constitutional argument can assume such
a possibility.
Supposing that the people are always to be
fairly represented in the balls of Congress.
maintain that it is grievous injustice to them to
legislate on the assutu t ption that any war hon
estly waged for ,constieutinual objects will not
always have such sytntiatbYtind support front
the people as will secure all necessary enlist
ments. Equally unjust to their intelligence is it
to' suppose that they Meant to douNr on their
servants the power to impress theta into It war
which they could not approve.
When to these considerations we add the abil
ity of a great country, like ours, to "stimulate
and reward enlistments, both at home and
abroad, bY bounties, plosions and homestead's;
as well as by political patronage in countless
forms, we see how little necessity or warrant
there is for implying a grant of the imperial
power of conscription.
There is nothing in the history of the Omit&
tution nor in thoie eieellen't Contemporaeeetts
papere called the Federalist, to justify the °pink
ion that this rast power lies wrapped up in the
fair plain words of the 13th clause, whilst the
subsequent clauses, concerning the 'AMU', abl ,
solutely forbid it.
If the very iMprobable case he supposablii,
that enlistments into the Federal armies might
become so nunteroita lit a paitictilar State at
sensibly to impair its own proper military pow
er, is it net much *ore Improbable that the
State meant to Confer span the General Govern
ment the power to depilie them, at its owe,
pleasure, altogether of the militia, by forced
? Yet this might easily happen if the pow
'er of -conscription be conceded to Congress.
There are no limitations expressed—nothing to
compel Congress to observe quotas and tont:M--
00ns as among the several States—nothing to
prevent their raising armies wholly from one
States thing :every able-bodied citizen out of
it to the endangering, if not utter undoing of
all its domestic interests.
And besides, if we concede this dangeinusliow - -
er to the language of the' thirteenth hlause. Ire
destroy the force and effect of the WoKds of ths
sixteenth and seventeenth alaties. We Made
the instrument self-destinetive; which is viols-
teen, and there ore, argue ongresi; arrnoffEe
power to draft them. Is an express rule of the
Constitution to give way to en implied one ?=
lithe thirteenth clanse confers power to draft
the militia,
the words of the sixteenth and sev
enteenth cl auses are the idlest that were ever
written. But lithe eighteenth conferred only
the power to enlist roam teem- then the ease
quent °lenses become very intelligible—stand
well with the thirteenth, and add essentially to
the martial faculties of the Federal Government.
Look at those clauses. The militia are to be
called forth to execute the laws of the Union,
supprels insurrections and repel Invasiontli to be
organized, armed and disciplined by the State . ;
but according to the laws of Congress; and such
part of them as may be employed in the service
of the United States are to be governed by the
President but offiebred by the reepective States.
Now this Conscription law recites an "existing
insurrection and rebellion" es the. ground and
reason, not far calling forth the militia under
the above provisions, but for drafting them into
the military service of the United States. The
very case has occurred in which the Constlta
tion says the militia shall be called out under
Stute officers, but Congress rays they shall hi
drafted, in contempt of State authority. Gen:
era' Washington and the men of his dayi did not
eo read the Constitution, when in euppreasiog
the Whisky insurrection id this State they paid
the most ecrupulons regard to the rights and
poWers of the State. Under pressure of a for
eign war, a Conscript Bill was reported in Con
gress in 1814, but it did not pass, and if it bad,
it would have been no precedent foi this laWi
because, we are dealing with' an instnitetfon,
and insurrections are epeeially provided for ilk
the Cottlititution. If to support a foreign war
Congress may draft the militia, which I do not .
admit, the power of draft to suppress insurrec
tions is not to be implied, since another meld*
of suppressing insurrections is expressly provi
ded. When *State is called on for its quota of
militia, it may determine, by lot, who of thtt
whole number of its enrolled militia shall an
swer the tall, and thus State drafts are Oita
regular, but a Congressional draft to Sitpreii an innovation that has no war
rant in the history or text of the Constitution
Either such a law, or the Constitution, must be
set aside. They cannot stand together.
And, happily, no ill consequences can flosi
from adhering to the Constitution; for the stand
ing army of the Federal Government, recruited
by enlistments in the ordinary *ay; with the
State militia called forth according tb the Con
stitution, are a force quite sufficient to subduti
any rebellion that is capable of being subdued
by force of arms. Such a formidable force, wise
ly wielded, in connection with a paternal and
patriotic administration of all other constitution=-,,
al powers, will never fail to put down refractory
mileottents, and preserve peace and good order
athong the Athbticab people. This Conscript
law, tberefor‘not sanctioned by thO donstitst.
tion, is not adapted to the exigencies of the timeaf' .
nor likely to have success as a war measure:
In its political bearings, evert more than in its
military aspects, it is subversive of the Consti
tution and of tbe rights of citizens that depend
upon State authority. A few thoughts will
make this plain. It is impossible An Study: our
