EDITORS GAZETTE: "An Immense Grape Vine" is the beading of a notice in your paper of September 8, taken from a California paper. It certainly is a big thing, but Greene county, Pa., can beat it in size of wood. On the banks of Dunk . and creek (where oil ought to be,) there are two large vines standing within ten feet of each other, the one meamuring thirtysix inches and the other forty eight inches iu circumference. The thickest one rises about fifty or sixty feet before it takes hold of the nearest tree; it then spreads over several trees, but was so high up I could not see wheth er it bad any fruit upon it or not. So you see, Messars. Editors, California may - be ahead on big trees, but Greene county, Pa., is entitled to the belt for having the largest place "where the belt ought to go. ' yet heard from. D. Pittsburgh, Sept. 8, 1869. Tne vast amount of PLANTATios BIT TERS now being sold and shipped from New York is almost incredible. Go when and where you will—along the wharves and piers, and' at the depots—you will see great piles of these Bitters awaiting shipment and conveyance to every nook and corner of the country, and to 'the hundreds of foreign ports. They are very popular among all classes of people, and are conceded to be just the thing for this climate. No Bitters have yet been introduced which have beome so de servedly popular and worthy of patron age, to all who require a tonic and stim ulant. They are 'prepared with pare St. Croii Rum, Calisaya Bark, and all the world knows fall well what beneficial results accrue from these combinations. MAGNOLLI.
