I, ELIZABETH. Munson, of Brandywine,
Del., formerly of Old Chester, Del., do certify
that, for one year and a half I suffered every
thing but death from that awful disease called
Dyspepsia. My whole system was prostrated
with weakness 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 way. 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 nay whole nervous system de
stroyed, and also my mind from that awful
complaint, Dyspepsia, that tnyfriends thought
best to have me placed in Dr. Kirkbride'e
hospital, West Philadelphia; I remained
there nine weeks, and thought I was a little
better, but in a few days my dreadful com
plaint was raging as bad 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. He 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
two weeks I began to digest my food, and felt
that my disease was fast giving way, and I
continued to recover for about three months,
and at the present time I enjoy perfect health
of body and mind, and I most sincerely return
my thanks to a merciful God and Dr. Wis
hart, and to his great American Dyspepsia
Pills and Pine Tree Tar Cordial that saved me
from an Insane Asylum and premature grave.
All persons suffering with Dyspepsia are at
liberty to call on me or write, as I am willing
to do all the good I can for suffering hu

Da. WISHABT'S Office, No. 10 North Second
street, Philadelphia.
Da. Meatier-1 have been a constant sufferer with
Dyspepsia for the last eighteen years, during which time
cannot say I ever enjoyed a perfectly well day. There
were times when the symptoms wore more aggravated
than at others, and then it seemed it would be a great re
lief to die. I had at all times en unpleasant feeling in my
head, but latterly my sufferings so much increased that
I became almost nntlt for business of any kind; my mind
was continually filled with gloomy thoughts and fore-
Wings, and if I attempted to change their current by
reading, at once a sensation of icy coldneES in connection
with a dead weight, as it were, rested upon my brain;
also, a reeling of sickness would occur at the stomach, and
great pain to my eyes, accompanied with which was the
continual fear of losing my reason. I also experienced
great lassitude, debility and nervousness, whibb made it
difficult to walk by day or sleep at night. I became
averse to society, and disposed only to seclusion, and
having tried the skill of a number of eminent physineas
of venous schools, filially came to theconclusion that, for
this disease at my present age (45 years) there was no core
in existence. But, through the interference of Divine
Provid once, to whom I devoutly offer my thanks I at last
found a sovereign remedy in your Dyspepsia his and
Tar Cordial, which seem to have effectually removed al
most the last trace of my long list of ailments and bad
feelings, and in their place health, pleasure and content
ment are my everyday companions.

J3x. VirtastAßT—Sir:—lt is with much pleasure that I
am now able to inform you that, by the use of your great
American Dyspepsia Pills, I have been entirely cured of
that most distressing compgaint, Dyspepsia. 1 bad been
grieviously afflicted for the: ,last twenty-eight years, and
for ten years of that time have not been free from its
path one week at a time. I have had it in its worst form
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 botching 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 heard of for
Dyspepsia, without receiving any benefit; but on your
Pills being recommended to me by one who had been
cured by them, I concluded to give them a trial, although
1 had no faith in them. To my astonishment, I found
myself getting better before I had taken one-fourth of a
box, and after taking half a box, I ant a mil 'man, and
can eat anything I wish, and enjoy a hearty meal three
times a day, without inconvenience from anything I eat
or drink. If you think proper, you are atliberty to make
this public and refer to me.

Dr. Wishar's in the Philadelphia Ledger, of a great cure
made upon Mr. John Babcock, of 1028 Olive street, Plaits
dolphin, by the grdat American Dyspepsia Pills. I went
to the Doctor's °Moe. and placed myself under h treAt
ment, and told him if he failed to cure me, it would be the
last effort I woutd make. It has been am weeks since I
commenced the use of his medicine, and I am now a well
man, free from all 'pain and distress, and can eat three
hearty meals a day with comfort, and, feel perfectly well.

Susquehanna river,. In the county of Clinton, and is sur
rounded by. romantic and attractive scenery. The Rail

been laid on, Saturday, July 2d, 1864.
A Company has been chartered by the Legislature for
supplying the town with gas and water, and the water
werks are nearly completed , . Churches will be erected
immediately. The situation of RENOVO is entirely
healthy, and as the dimensione of the town are limited
by nature, the value of the lots must appreciate greatly
in the course of a few years. . , .
_ .
EMPORIUM will certainly be the most important Coin . -
mercial point between Lock Haven and Warren, a dis
tance of 158 miles. It is near the centre of the railroad,
47 miles west of Renovo; 139 miles from Sunbury end
149 miles from Erie It is near the Junction of the Drift
wood Branch of the Sinnemalroning, with West Creek,
Portage Creek and . North Creek, the Valleys of which
•streams make it the most accessible point on the Phila
delphia and Erie railroad te a very extensive district of
country. The moment the projected railroad connecting
with the city of Rochester, N. Y., shall . be completed,
Sew interior towns in the State will surpass it in business
capabilities. An excellent graded road now connects it
with Coudersport, the seat of Justice of Potter county.
It is also connected with Sinethport, the seat of Justice of
McKean county. Emporhimls fhb County Seat of Cam

near the Hotel and Court House. The place is healthy,
and excellent water is abundant is in the midst of
one of the linnet White Pine regions in Pennsylvania.
As a manufacturing town it has great, advantages; coal,
lumber; stone, bark frit tanneries are abundant, and its
railroad communications with the great fakes and all
pointa Of iinportince in the . seaboard are unsarpassed.
This place was selected thirty years ago as a point of im.
pittance, and a town laid matxitti the prophetic name of

A large concourse of people assembled at
the Washington Street Methodist Episcopal
Church this morning to hear apatriotic, sound
and intellectual discourse, delivered by Rev.
Mr. Buckingham, formerly a well-known
Methodist minister, located at Gettysburg,
Pa. lam under obligations to our worthy
Chaplain for a synopsis of Rev. Buckingham's
remarks, and permitting me to copy the sub
stance of this highly interesting discourse
from the private journal.
Rev. Buckingham based his remarks on the
Proclamation of President Lincoln. His first
proposition was:
"We should thank God the nation still
"After three years of war—wounded and
bleeding at every pore—attacked, not onlyi by
open and deadly foes abroad, but by sneaking
and cowardly traitors at home—yet the nation
still lives ! Her capital is free from the grasp
of those who sought her destruction. No
enemy treads its "sacred soil," except in
He dwelt, at some length, upon the emanci
pation proclamation:
"We ought to thank God that Liberty is
marching on, with rapid strides, letting the
oppressed go free ?" Rev. Buckingham also
dwelt upon our educational interests—our
common school
,• system—the grand medium
through which the poor man is enabled to as
cend the ladder Of human greatness. Quoting
from a certain author, he said: "Show me a
willing slave, and I will show you a degraded
being!" He resumed: "The South, acting
.on the principle that knowledge is power,
in a selected few, and keep the rest in igno
rance, that they mity • control them more
readily; • Hence:. - thetr inveterate hatred or
everything that attaches free to it"
Quoting from the Richmond Examiner of a
recent date, the speaker read:
"We have got to hating everything with the
pre-fix free ! From free negroes, down and
up through the whole catalogne—"free farms,"
"free labor," "free will," "free thinking,"
"free children"(!) and "free schools"—all be
long to the same catalogue of damnable isms!
Bat the worst of all these abominations, is the
modern system of "free schools l" The New
England system of free schools has been the
cause and prolific source of the infidelities
and treasons that have turned her cities into
Sodomy and Gomorrahs, and her land into
the common resting places of bowling bed
limites 1 We abominate the system, because
the schools are free !"
The eloquent divine then read an .extract
from the Muscogee (Ala.) Herald. [I would
respectfully call the attention of every intel
ligent man, woman, child, and mechanic and
working man, or "small-fisted" farmer of the
great, free North, to the language of .this
aristocratic Southron and infidel.—A. H. B.]
"Free society! We sicken at the name!
What is it but a conglomeration of greasy
mechanics, filthy operatives, small-fisted
farmers, and moon-struck theorists? All
the Northern States (and 'especially the New
England States) are devoid of society fitted
for well-bred gentlemen !" [Such as the rant

with is that of mechanics struggling to be
genteel, and small-fisted farmers, who do
their own drudgery ; and yet, who are hardly

[What do you think now, of Southern chiv
alry—Southern rights—and Southern views.

The remainder of Rev. Buckingham's dis
course was interesting, winding up with a
reference to the future glory of our country,
and a speedy termination of the rebellion.
He was followed by another speaker, (whose
name I do not remember) who said :
"He desired to build a monument to Jeff
erson Davis, President of the Southern Con
federacy. He wanted the foundation laid
deep in the earth, and the summit raised as
high as Monnt Atlas ! He would not build it
with polished marble—zior of granite—nor of
live oak timber—but of human skulls—and
on the apex of the monument he would place
the ghastly skull of Jefferson Davis, there to
remain as a memorial of one of the most
wicked rebellions the world ever witnessed—
led on by the arch traitor himself!"
These interesting and patriotic discourses
were listened to by a large and highly inter
ested audience.
The boys of the regiment were nearly all
away from camp to-day, by permission of
course, rambling over the city and enjoyed
themselves generally.
Hoping that you and your readers enjoyed
yourselves vastly, on this, our National holi
day, I wil bid you all "good night, friends—
good night !" More anon, A. H. B.
P. S.—ln my last an error occurred in re
gard to the present population of the city of
Alexandria. It should read 12,000, instead
of 1,200.—A. H. B.

ambulations around the city, to-day, I found
a tall shoemaker, belonging to Company B,
hard at work drawing wax-ends at arms

briskly, doing work for his comrade, rolling
a quid of tobacco from one cheek to the other,
over head-and-ears in business, and where do
'you suppose his shop is located? Why, sir.

opposite. yes, sir, between hours of duty
our tall friend, George, is busy as he can he,
mending the boots and shoes of his fellow
soldiers; which is not only a great conveni
ence to the men, but a source of profit to our
fellow-citizen G—. Propel your business,
friend, and may your shadow never grow less!
In the same bazaar with our respected
shoemaker friend can be seen another Harris
burger, private H—r, a tailor, also of Com
pany B, plying his vocation, altering the new
"duds" just issued to the regiment ; some of
which fit the boys to aT, and hers that won't
fit; and which, in some instances, like the
Irishman's blanket, must be cut off at one end
and sowed on to the other; to make the gar
ment longer, or vice versa. Fun aside, these
two men are very useful members of Captain
&Marron Company, and find plenty to do,
and they do A with a will, and satisfactory to
all concerned.
In the thriving locality just referred to, the
men indulged in piscatory amusements, a
week or ten days ago, to some purpose, taking
a daily supply of fine, fresh Potomac fish—
perch, catfish and eels; but the "cold snap"
of the last week put an end to the sport. The
finny inhabitants of the turbulent Potomac
have sought elsewhere for a "local habita
tion," and fishing, consequently, is virtually
"played out," much to the regret of the
`sojers" belonging to the 201st regiment.
' There is a trial of great interest going on
here in Alexandria, the county seat of Fair
fax county. A notorious bushwhacker, named
Binns, who, it is said, belongs to one of the
"first”"families of Virginia, murdered a Union
man in cold blood, at Fairfax Station, a short
time since. He also led a small force of Union
cavalry into an ambush where M.oseby's men
were secreted; for which fiendish deed he
was promoted to a lieutenancy by Illose. He
afterwards threatened to kill every Union
man he came across; and, in order to make
good his hellish intent, he killed an inoffen
sive man, and was captured before he got on
his horse to flee from justice ! Judge Brown,
of the Civil Court, is trying the caseoand loyal
men inform me that the evidence is strong
against Binns, and no dohbt he will be hung,
as he deserves to he.
Yesterday a detective of tl2 e U. S. Government
"reined up" his foam-flecked carger at our post,
and in answer to my inquiry what made the
animal sweat so freely, he remarked: " I was
back in the country, some eight or ten miles,
lookingitifter some suspicious characters; and
while riding quietly along the public road
leading to Washington, across the country, a
ruffianly looking bush-whacked dashed into
the road and demanded "your money;" "well
I suppose I must"—said I; and reaching into
my pocket, as if to get out my purse, I drew
my navy revolver, and shot at the rascal, the
ball flying through his hand ;. whereupon two
accomplices came out 'from behind some
bushes, which admonished me that it was time
to "git;" and I did so instantly, escaping two
shots from the interesting friend.s I so n_usere
moneously left in the highway; much to their
chagrin, I presume, and to the astonishment
of my faithful horse here that helped me out
of the scrape, for I tried his metal sorely.
There are several gunboats at anchor in the
river below; but the names of the craft, or
their capacity and commander's names I have
not learned.
The large military force in anaround the
city of Alexandria is under comm dable dis
cipline, owing to the excellent mill il {try regime
of General S. Slough. Occasionally an un
principled and vicious soldier is picked up on
the street, and instantly marched to the guard
hSuse, opposite the Soldiers' Rest, in the vi
cinity of the depot. The guard .house in
question, is an ordinary three-storied-building,
with two extensive wings, painted drab color,
and over the front entrance has the following
insignificant sign, painted on the brick wall:
"Horace Birch& Co., Dealers in 'Slaves!" It is
a veritable slave-pen—where many a family
of colored people have been tremblingly hud
dled together f sold to the highest bidder, and
sent away in chains, perhaps, to be separated
forever, hundred miles apart! What an in
fernal relic of the peculiar institution! No
wonder, that the soldier hates it as he does the
Lazaretto, teeming with disease and death ?
How repugnant and humiliating that infernal
. sign appeared to the eyes of us Northerners,
standing there in the street gazing at it!
The U. S. Paymaster has been "around,"
visiting the hospitals, and it was extensively
rumored by the boys of the 201st that we will
be "attended to, " shortly. "A consumma
tion devoutly to be wished for," dear TELE
TRAPH—for green-backs and grey-backs are
scarce alike around cur camp!
There is some unaccountable dely in the
transmission of mail matter between Harris
burg and Alexandria,going north. We receive
papers and other matter from home on the
tollbwing day on which they are -mailed at
Harrisburg, whilst our matter going north
ward is a day or two, behind time- -in fact, a
fellow might sling a mail pouch over his back,
and walk the distance almost as soon; and
that too, in these days of steam and railroads !
The delay is, evidently, at Washington
city, where an unusual amount .of matter
daily accumulates. There is great complaint
made also by some of the men connected with
this regiment, in regard to the abstracting of
money from letters sent here by their friends,
and we have every reason to believe that this
robbing of the poor Union soldier is done be
tween Baltimore and this place. Some from
$1 to $l5 are missing. Privates Rose, Rich
ards, Yoke, Young and others of company I,
have been victimized. Boys get your friends
to obtain a money order at the Harrisburg P.
0., and you will get the money without fail.
At the request of my friend Yoke, I addressed
a note to the P. 0. Department at Washington,
and received a prompt reply to the effect that
immediate inquiry will be made into this mat
ter. Please inform, and greatly oblige us, by
stating whether the registration fee paid at
any specified P. 0., will secure the loss of
funds transmitted by letter '1
This evening, on dress parade, the boys
looked SP
lended in their new 11. S. clothing.
A friend walking along with me, up to the
parade ground asked, "what regiment is that?"
"Why the bold 201st—don't yon know your
own crowd, B—?" "Did you ever!" was
his answer, in astonishment.
Colonel Awl paid the officers a deserved
compliment, in a lengthy confab with them,
on the fine appearance of the men on this oc
casion. More anon. A. H. B.
