The following certificate Islam a well-known citizen of
HARRISBURG, Aug. 30.1861.
To THE Pun=:—lt gives me great pleasure to recom
mend to the public the medicine prepared by DR. J. J.
MeBRIDE, which be calls the ".KIN6 OF PAIN." I was
induced to use it as an external remedy fora bruise, which
it %Herod Immediately, and subsequently cured entirely.
Its success induced me to use it internally for Diarrhoea;
with which I was afflicted in a chronic form for nearly
eighteen months, and to such an extent that my Wimps
were seriously deranged. The medicine has cured me,
and certainly that is saying a great deal in its favor, when I
retlect hew many other remedies I tried without experi
encing anythin4 but temporary relief. For my part, I
shall alw..ys keep a supply of it in my house, believing as
I do that it is a most invaluable family medicine.
The unexampled sale of this medicine proves It to be
the most wonderful discovery of the age in the Medical
The undersigned are the sole agents for the State, and'

DYSPEPSIA, DYSPEPSIA, DYSPEPSIA
I, ELIZABETH BRANSON, of Brandywine,
DeL, formerly of Old Cheater, Del., do certify
that, for one year and a halt I suffered every
thing but death from that awful disease called
Dyspepsia. My whole system was prostrated
with weak-less and nervous debility; I could
not digest my food;_ if I ate even a cracker or
the smallest amount of food, it would return
just as I swallowed it; I became so costive in
my bowels that I would not have a passage in
less than from four and often eight days; un
der this immense suffering, my mind seemed
entirely to give:Why. I had a dreadful horror
and evil forebodings. I thought everybody
hated me, and I hated everybody; I could not
bear my husband. nor my own children, every
thing appeared to be horror-stricken to me;
I' had no ambition to do anything; I lost all
my love of family and home; I would ramble
and wander from place to place, but could not
be contented; I felt that I was doomed to
hell, and that there was no heaven for • me;
and was often 'tempted to commit suicide,
so near was. my whole nervous system de
stroyed, and also my mind from that awful
complaint, Dyspopinai•that myfriends thought
best to have me placed in Dr. Rirkbride'S
hospital; West Philadelphia; I remained
there nine weeksountthought I was a little
better, but in a 'fewPdays my dreadful com
plaint was raging &s had as ever: Hearing of
the wonderful cures performed by Dr.'•Wis
hart's Great American Dyspepsia Pills and
his treatment for Dyspepsia, my husband
called on Dr. Wishart and' stated my case to
him. Pie said he had no doubt he could cure
me. So in three days after I called and placed
• myself under the Doctor's treatment, and in
t 'wo weeks I began to digest my food, and felt
dot my disease was fast giving way, and I
non ,+inued to recover for about three months,
an d a t the present time I enjoy perfect health
of bod.,• and mind, and Imost sincerely return
my t h an •ks to a merciful God and Dr. Wis
hart, and to his great American Dyspepsia
Pills an d fine Tree Tar Cordial that saved me
from an T -we Asylum and premature grave.

I became almost nap, for hasiness of any kind; my mind
was continually filled Witli gloomy thoughts and fore
bodings,-and if -I attempted to ,change their current by
reading, at once a sensation of joy coldness, In Connection
with a dead weight.; as dt were, rooted upon my brain;
also, a Mang of sickness would °emir at the stomach, and
great pain to my eyes, accompanied , with which was the
continual fear of losing my reason. I also exPeriended
great lassitude, debility , and nervousness:. Which made it
difficult to walk by day or sleep at nig ilk I became

and have dragged on a most Miserable existence—in pain
day and night. Every kind of food that .I ate filled me
with wind and pain, it mattered not how light, Or how
small the quantity . A continued belching was sure to
follow. I had no appetite for any kinds of meats what
ever and my distrers was so great for several months be
fore I heard-of, your Pills, that I frequently wished for
death. I had taken everything that I had beard of for
Dyspepsia, without receiving any benefit, but on your
Pills being recoinmended to me by one who had been
Cured by them, concluded to give them a trial, although
I had no faith in them.,. Tp my astonishment, I found
myself getting better before I bad taken one•fourth of a '

U. S. 7-30 LOAN.
THE Secretary of the Treasury gives-notice
that subscriptions will be received for,Cou
pon Treasury Notes, payable three yesirsTrom
August 15th, 1864, with semi-annual interest'
at the rate of seven and three-tenths per cent
per annum—principal and interest both to be
paid in lawful money.
These notes will be convertible at the option
of the holder at maturity into six per cent.
gold bearing bonds, payable not less than five!
nor more than twenty, years from their date,.
as the Government may elect. They will be;
issued in denominations of $5O, $lOO, $5OO,
$l,OOO and $5,000, and all subscriptions must
be for fifty dollars or some` multiple of fifty!,
The notes `will be transmitted to the owners;
free of liansPortation charges as sCiOn after
the receipt of the original Certificates of De=
posit as they can be prepared.
As the notes draw interest from August 15,;
persons making deposits subsequent to that
date must pay the interest accrued from date
of note to date of deposit.
Parties depositing twenty-five thousand dol
lars and upwards for these notes at any one
time will be allowed a commission of one
quarter of one per cent.

In addition to the very liberal interest on
the notes for three years, this privilege of
conversion is now worth about three per cent.
per, anntun, for the current rate for 5-20 Bonds
is not less than nine per cent. premium, and be
fore the war the premium on six per cent. U.
S. stocks was over,twenty per cent. It will
be seen that the acual profit on this loan, at
the present market rate, is not less than ten
per cent. per annum.
Its Exeuiption from State or Municipal
But aside from all the advantages we have
enumerated, a special act of Congress exempts
all bonds and easury notes from local taxation.
On the average, this exemption is worth about
two per cent. per annum, according to the
rate of taxation in various parts of the country.
It is believed that no securities offer so
great inducements to lenders as those issued
by - the Government. In all other forms of
indebtednesk the .faith or ability of private
parties, or stook - companies, or 'separate com
munities, only, is pledged 'for payment, while
the whole property of the country is held to
secure the discharge of all the obligations of
the United States.
While the dovernment offers the most
liberal terms for its loans, it believe's that the
very strongest appeal will be to the loyalty
and patriotism of the people
Up to the 24th of September, the subscrip

From Petersburg we have no tidings, ex
eept the rumor that Grant has worked hard
to fortify himself at Fort and is push
ing his pickets a mile further in the direction
of the Southsids road. This is but rumor ;
but it is undoubtedly true that the Soothsicle
road is the aim of all Grant's present evolu
tions. He then will endeavor to run up ten
or twenty thousand men in that way to the
Danville road, and so accomplish_ what Sheri
dan and Hunter tailed to do.
