We have no hesitation instating that, it these Bitters

might be saved that otherwise will be lost.
We call particular attention to the following re:

PIMATOMPOIA, August 23rd, 1862.
1 Messrs. Jena &Daum—Well, gentlemen, your Hoof
an the German Bitters has saved my life. There is no
mistake in this. It is vouched fir by numbers of my
comrades, some of whose nano are appended, and who
were fully cognizant of all the circumstances of my
case I am, and have been far the last four years, a
member of .Shernian's elebrated battery, and under
the immediate command of Captain R. B. As res.—
Threugh 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 !louse, and sent to this city on board
the Steamer .-State of Maine" from which I landed
on the 23th of Jane. Simla that titre 1 have been a
bout as low as any one could be and still retain a spark
alvitality. For a week or more I was scarcely able to
swallow anything, and if 1 did three a morsel down, it
was immediately thrown up again.
I could not even keep a glass of water on my stom
ach . Life could not last under these circumstances;
and, accordingly, the physicians who had been work
ing Mithfully, though unsuccessfully, to rescue ma
from the grasp of 'the dead Archer, frankly told me
they could do noMore for me, and advised me to see
a clergyman, and to Make such disposition of my limi
ted funds as best suited me. An acquaintaece who
visited me at the hospital, Mr. Frederick Stelubrom 0
Sixth below Arch Street, ad , islet me, as a forlorn
hope, to try your Bitters, and kindly procured a hot.
tle. From the time I commenced taking them the
gloomy shadow of death receded, and 1 am now, thank
Cod for it, getting better. Though I have but taken
two bottles, 1 have gained ten pounds, aud I feel san
guine of being Pa rattled to rejoin my wife and daugh
ter, from whom I have heard nothing for 18 months:
for, gentlemen, I am a loyal Virginian, front the vicin
ity of Front Royal. To your invaluable Bitters I owe
the certainty of life which has taken the place of vague
fears—to your. Bitters will I owe the glorious privilege
fof again clasping to my began those who are dearest to
me in life. Very truly yours, ISAAC MALONE'.

A MONSTER IMPROVEMENT,
Erection of Two Hundred and Forty
The greatest improvement of the
age is that which is now progressing
in the northern section of Philadel
phia, consisting of the erection of no
less than two hundred and fifty dwell
ing houses on the site formerly oceu•
pied by Camac's Woods. The build.
ings stand in eight rows, in Eleventh
street, Marvine street, 12th street,
Caruso street, and 13th street each
one extending from Montgomery to
Berks streets. The buildings in the
main are all constructed alike, those
on the corners being fitted up for
stores, They are all three stories in
height, with small grass plots in
front, surrounded with neat and
handsome iron- railing.. They con
tain all the modern improvements of
the day, being supplied with gas,
bath rooms, and many other conve
niences. Each house contains on
the first floor a large saloon-,, parlor,
dining room and kitchen. The up
per stories contain a sittingroom and
four bedrooms, with a back stair en
trance. The corner houses on Berks
street have largo bow windows on
the first and second stories, with a
ten foot side yard. Taken all togeth
er, the houses are commodius and
roomy, and such as are now needed
and much sought after.
The row on Eleventh street, it is
calculated, will he ready for occupa
tion in two weeks, while the whole
block will be completed by the first
of next May. This is, without doubt,
one of the most gigantic enterprises
ever undertaken in that city. The
construction of these dwellings will
populate a section of the city, here
tofore nothing but barren lots, and
will much increase the value of real
estate in that neighborhood, thus
stimulating others to engage in sim
ilar enterprises. Besides this, a great
improvement of this kind gives em
ployment to hu ndreds df workmen - -
the,most deserving class of our corn
inanity, and irivolves in it the invest
ment elan immense capital. Those
who have not visited that section
since the commencement of these
buildings could scarcely realize the
change. The place was formerly a
great wood, and was a favorite place
of resort for parties, picnics, &c.—
The wood has now disappeared arid
in its place stands a group.of neat
brick houSes, which on account of
their similarity present a pleasing
picture to the spectator. As soon
as these buildings are finished, the
same party contemplate the erection
of , One hundred'and eighty more of ta
larger size and'Of more cost. They
will occupy, lots irinnediately north
of the ,present: ones.

The death of an obscure German artist;
and the recent revival before one of the
Paris courts of the celebrated diamond
necklace cause celebre, bring to mind a
singular adventure which caused some
years ago great scandal at the Court of
Munich. Before Lola Montez went to
the capital of Bavaria, King Louis' atten
tion was attracted by a German prima
donna, Charlotte Kendrick. One morning
King Louis discovered, as he crossed the
palace nursery, the floor of the room cov
ered with his children's toys; among
them were several doll babies. He was
then on his way to Charlotte Kendrick's
rooms. He thought that a single doll
would scarcely be missed among the na -,
merous toys which filled the floor. He
put one of them, the first he could lay hit
hands upon, in his pocket.
When he reached Charlotte Kendrick's
lodgings he gave the doll to her child,
and forgot everything about it. While
the King was closeted with the prima
donna, the palate was in an indescribable
state of confusion. A great robbery was
discovered to have been committed in
the Queen's bedchamber. A valuable
turquoise, surrounded with enormaus dia
monds, and worth above $20,000, had
been purloined. The enfortunrie occur
rence was concealed as lorig as possible
from the king, for he had given the jeivel
to his wife, and prized it extretnely. It
could not be kept longer from likn, and
the moment he was informed of it he sent
for the police, and ordered that no pains
should be spared to discover the culprits
whom he vowed should be severely pun;
ished. Several servants were arrested
A state concert was given that same
evening. All the diplomatic corps and
the most distinguished company of court
were present. The daring robbery com
mitted in the morning was the subject of
general conversation. The turquoise
was familiar to everybody in the court
theatre. Charlotte Kendrick appeared in
the third piece; it was some favorite, bra
vura from a grand opera. She, wad
dressed in light-blue silk, trimmed with
white lace. She advanced to the front of
the stage and bowed to the sovereigns,
and then to the other spectators. As she
rose from the profound obeisance made;
all eyes were riveted with astonishment
upon her stomacher; there glittered the
royal gem lost that morning!
A buzz of wonder ran around the
room. The King blushad deeply. He
saw at once how the alleged theft had oc
cured. His children, finding the breast=
pin on the royal table, thrust it into the
dress of their favorite doll. He had not
observed it, and had given it with the doll
to the prima donna's daughter. Charlotte
Kendrick did not see the valuable breast
pin until after the King's departure. She
thought he had, for delicacy, adopted this
indirect way to make her a valuable pres
ent; and to thank him aS delicately she
wore it next her heart at the state concert.
The King was obliged to confess what had
taken place, to explain the Mistake to the
prinia donna, who with a heavy heart sur=
rendered the valuable trinket The palace
servants were at once released with a val
uable gratuity in money to compensate
Ihem for their imprisonment.
