disorders of the digestive organs are speedily removed.
We have no hesitation in...stating that, if these Bitters
were freely used among out Soldiers, hundredrotlives
might be saved that otherwise wilt be lost.

The recent terrible catastrophe in
Santiago recalls vividly to - my mind
one: of the most extraordinary adven
tures of my chequered life,. Five and
twenty years ago, I was Captain of
the Northern Light, a large schooner;
trading between Null and St. Peters
burg. .A long.acquaintance with the
vicissitudes- of the Russian cliMate
had made me somewhat reckless.--L--
The consequence Was, that one 30th
of OctOber I found -my vessel tight
locked in ice. I had stayed a 'week
too long, in my eagerness to take a
full cargo of timber, and I was justly
punished for My temerity ; a prisoner
till the middle or end of April, far a
way from my friends, and (thing what
a livery-stable-keeper would call"eat
ing my own head off."
Being, however, of a sanguine
11 Fino i witut hOme,
make the best of it, and enjoy - roySdlt'
as well as I could. I saw all the
sights of St. Petersburg, froM Peter
the Great's wooden house down to the,
mammoth. I visited Moscow. I
went bear hunting. I. drove tihoutin
Sledges. I fell in love and fell out a
gain, Nor did I neglect business. I
frequently attended the Exchange,
and made myself known to the chief
tallow, hemp, and timber'mereliants.l
I studied Russian ; commerce: I ar
ranged, for cargoes for two years to
come: The Anglo,RusSians are very
hospitable. and thanks to the kindness
of Air. Anderson the English banker,
my hotel expenses were very small.
My fur coats were my chief expense ;
they cost ; me a large Suln then ; but I.
reckoned that they wouldlast me my
life, and so they haveatleastlwear
then to; this day.
Nevertheless, I pined for the hetir
of liberty: An idle life did not suit a
man of my teniperarnentanc who
had been at, sea ever since he,'•was
twelve gars 'old. Like all sailors, I.
was always grumbling against the
sea, and yet 1 waS Me TT. happy away
from At last 'the order of my re
lease conic: The ice on. the Nava,
opposite the custom house especially,
began to melt into thin bars 'an -inch
or so wide. It became dangerous, to
venture : on it ; except where it was
piled with snow. The ice slaps on
the quay began to break, when I
pushed them with my Stick, • into
glassy fragments. Ilere and there
some spaces began' to open, and dirty
brown snow water pooled on the
face. There had boen severat , warm
days; bat now rain and wind emine,
andsthey soon melted the wril is of my
crystal.prison. Sledges. still venter
ed on the Nava, thoughthe water rail
up to the horses knees.
Ono morning, when I looked out
of my window on the ground floor at
Miss Bensen's on the English
the water had all gone from the sur
face of the ice ; and t4att, was the well
known sign that the' ice bad become
too porous and spongy to hold water,
and in a few hours would break away
from the banks and begin to float sea
I had just set down to' breakfast,
When a thunder peal of cannottbroke

The wooden theatre of the Katshell
Was an enormous building, built as

thonSaud persons. It had large:gal

by the keen edged iced draught. I
amused Myself; while the overture
was playing, with the motley View

were worth studying, now that they
. .beamed with fun.: ,The little -. oblique
eyes glistkned with enjoyment, the
great bearded tingled headS rolled
about in cestacy. ilere and there
the eye fell on a Polish or Circassian

a Greek contour. Every new and

risen, but a faint crimson light . was
shining behind it; it was the com
mencement of the pyrotechnic dis
play, and I was curious to ace what
the Russians could do in th'e.se mat

illuinination of the Kremlid at the
coronation of theEmperot4lexander

preparation tor, though the red light
widened and. glowed,. the Curtain,
strangely enough did not rise. The
people stamped and shouted: All at

"Bravo, Ferrsri !" cried the peas

The clown fled from the stage, as
it seemed; in an agony of feigned
fear. The laughtet . redoubled. A

whispered to the orchestra, and wa
