John Italer, editor of the independent .Phrecia, hav

The West Chester jefferscmian says :
"We have known Dr. Oberholtzer personally a

to recommend his medicines, inasmuch as the public
rarely have the benefit of family medicines prepared by

This certifies that I have used the Phoenix Pectoral
in my; family , and I recommend it to the public as the

accompanied with a Croupy Cough ; so bad indeed that
it whin not talk or scarcely breathe. flaying heard
so utneh said about the Phoenix Pectoral I procured a

sufferings of the noble army of the
Potomac, when pressed by rebel
herds on the Swamp' bound banks of
the James ; or when confronted by
Stone Wall's 30,000 veterans, amidst
the desolating, withering fire of hell,
which was poured upon our decima
ted .ranks, at . the i ulaughter-strewn
field : of Chancollorsville ? The boys
endeavored to•rnake the best - of a dis
agreeable situation, and amidst : the
sound of song, and the blaze of cheery
camp fires we . slowly sank into the
embraces of the somnific deity-the
kindly Morpheus.
We remained in our involputarily
chosen encampment for only ten
hours,. 'When we were ordered - by
Major Haller, commanding the ,PoSt - ,
to advance to Cashtown, at the foot
of the. South Mountain. Hero were

after bravely combatting superior

but rather that any of us even es

of :continuous rains; producing a mud

A retrogade movement was com

ways—notv almost totally impassa
ble on account of mud. Some of the
more weakly constituted, began to
find well-filled knapsacks not so pleas
ant as might have been desired, and
loitered in the rear with a feW of their
stronger comrades to assist them.--
Whilst this rear squad, number;

freShing themselves—We were sur
prised by an unexpectedly visit by
about 1500 nib. Cavalry-Lwhom be
ing evidently desirous of forming
a more intimate acquaintance with
our agreeable selves, we felt .hound
to entertain as well as our limited
means, of amusement would permit.
The result of a ten minutes acquain
tance was, however, not so agreeable,
for-.all of whom except S. Moore and
myself were taken prisoners, and
much to theirdiscomfitUre were march:

occurred at 10 o'clock, A. M., and
from that time until 7 P. M., we as
sidiously enjoyed ourselves' in the fa
vorite stragetic operation known as
a change of base, which if not con.;
ducted upon as , g . large a scale, as has
been frequently. the case upon the
Rappalitnnock, was

those eelebrated historic movements

we were not free from the presence
of grey backed soldiers, whose idea

worn-down-steds, they were' unable
to out run us in our precipitate flight
across thickets and woods, which de
fied their efforts to penetrate with
rapidity, they still could shoot, and
we thought so too, by the frequent
whiz and buzz of their bullets. At
one time, just as we had congratulat
ed ourselves, that w.e had finally dis
tanced their advance, and throWnthe
pursurers off the trail, we emerged
.from the woods, in which we were
concealed, but to our amazement, we
found a regiment of White Cavalry
drawn up in a :line,' not over three
hundred yards from the .spot where
we stood. The Corn mending officer
ordered us to surrender. The reply
was "you are not -our Commander

formed evolution, distinguished the
