DYSPEPSIA, DYSPEPSIA, DYSPEPSIA.
I, ELIZABETH BILINBi)N, of Brandywine;
Del.," formerly of Old Chester, Del., do certify
ttalit i , for one year and a halt 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 &Ought everybody
hated me, and I hated everybody; I could not
bear my husband nor my own children,
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, Dyspepsia, that my friends thought
best to have me pieced in Dr. Kirkbride's
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 Oreat Amerioan Dyspepsia Pills and
his treatment for Dyspepsia, my husband
called on Dr. WiehartAnd stated my ease to
him. He said he had no doubthe could 'cure
me. do in three days after I called and placed
myself under the Doctor's treatment , and in
two weeks I began to digest my food„ arid 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. Wil
bert, 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
manity. NriTZABETH BRANSON;
Brandywine, Del., formerly of Old Chester,
Delaware county, Pa.
Da. WISELAIIT'S Once, No. 10 North Second
Da. WISRART—I have been a constant sufferer with
Dyspepsia for the last eighteen years, during which time
I cannot riga ever enjoyed a perfectly well day. There
were times when the symptoms were more aggravated
than at others, and then it seemed It mould be a great re
lief to die. I had at all times an unpleasant feeling in my
head, but latterly my sufferings so much increased that
I became almost unlit for business of any kind; my mind
was continually filled with gloomy thoughts and fore
bodings, and if I attempted to change Weir current by
reading, at once a sensation of icynoldness in connection
with a dead weight, as it were, rested upon my brain.
also, a feeling or sickness would occur at the stomach, and
great pain to my eyes, accompanied with which was tile
continual fear of losing my reason. I also experienco
great lassitude, debility and. nervousness, which 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 physicinis
of various schools, Really came to the conclusion that, fOr
this disease at my present age (lb years) there was no cure
in existence. Buk, through the interference of. Divide
Providence, to whom I devoutly offer my thanks, I at Met
found a sovereign remedy in your ,Dyspepsia Pills mid
Tar Cordial, which seem to have effectually removed al
menthe last trace of my long list of ailments and' bad
feelings, and la their plate health, pleasure and content-
Anent are my everydaycompanions.

death. I had taken everything that I bad heard of for
Ityspopsla, without receiving any benefit; but on your
Pine being recommended to me by one who had been
cured by them, I concluded to give them a trial, although
I had no faith in them. To my astonighment, I fouhd

Dr. Wishar's in the Philadelphia Ledger, of a great cure
made upon Mr. John Babcock, of 1028 Olive street, Phila
delphia, by the gredt Ainerican By:wet:mkt Pills. I went
to the Doctor's Nike, and placed under b treat
ment, and tOki-him if he failed to:cure hie, It would be the
last effort I would make. It has. boen six 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.
Dr. Wishart, I want you.to publish my case, as I want
every poor dyspeptic suffering as I was, to call on me, and
I will tell them of the great cure I have received from
your invaluable medicine. SAMUEL D. HAVEN.

THE VICTORY IN TtNNESSEE.
The Prettiest Fight of the War,
DESPERATE EFFORTS OF THE REBELS.
Terrible Slaughter Atitoug Them
Their Losi Estimated at 7,000
FOUR Mmvs SOUTH OF ..NASHVFLE,
Thursday, Dec. L
Gen. Schofield yesterday fought one of the
prettiest fights of the war, resulting most dis
astrously.to the rebels, with little loss to our
selves. After three, days' skirmishing, the
rebels crowded our first line Of works, .yester
day afternoon,and at four o'clock made a most
desperate attack on our right and center,
forcing our lines to our breastworks, which
were thrown up from river to river, in an
open field on the Cumberland pike, which
ran.through the' center of the field.
At least half the rebel force engaged en
deavored to pierce our centre, and came down
viciously on Wagner's division, which, after
desperate fighting, fell back, and Many's
rebel. division, of Frank Cheatham's corps,
got inside our works and captured two guns.
Our center was not broken, however, and,
better still, Gen. Wagner successfully rallied
his troops, who charged on the enemy, re
captured the two grins and drove the division
over the breastworks, capturing one entire bri
gade and its commander.
At half past four o'clock the battle waged
with unabated vigor, the enemy having made,
during a half hour, several attempts to break
. 447 1239
The Union position was a magnificent one,
and the result of these four days' work was
All this while the rebels had appeared in
front of ourrright. The plan was to pierce
our centre and crush our right wing before
dark. A. portion of our infantry was engaged
three-quarters of an hour firing on the rebel
columns, who stood their ground like mad
During every charge made on our right and
centre, volleys of grape and canister were
hurled into their lines, and only darkness
prevented their sacrifice being more awful.
It is said that no canister shot was used by
the rebels- du:ilk the day, but shot and shell.
After the first break of Wagner's division
and its recovery, our line never , budged a step.
All was. quiet.afterlo r. M. ,It was not, only
one of the prettiest but cleanest battles of the
war. The excessive slaughter of the enemy
was owing to our wholesale% use of canister
and grape, and oufselection of the ground.
The battle was . finiglit in an open field, with
no trees or undergrowth, or other interrup
tion. The. enemy's loss in killed and wounded
approximates 7,000, and we -have over 1,200
prisoners, and. one General officer and two
field officers. The Colonel of the 15th Mis
sissippi, 11. Northern man of Illinois,. was
wounded and ..taken prisoner. Four-fifths of
his regiment were killed, wounded and cap
tured. Our logs does not reach a thortErtnd.
Gen. Bradley, of Illinois, while gallantly
leading his troops, was severely wounded in
the shoulder. Gur loss in field officersis very
small. Our . troops behaved handsomely.—
Schofield commanded on the field, Stanley en
the right and Cox on the left. Gen. Stanley
was wounded slightly in the neck, but re
mained on the field, and is all right to-day.
I have told you all along the programme of
Gem Thomas would:, electrify . you, and this is
but the,prologue of ; battle to come off.
After our "dead, . wounded and prisoners
were cared for, our army fell back- toc- this
point, and are in line of battle while I write.
Up to this time, 3 P. m., the enemy has not
made his appearance. The Third Corps of
Veterans are in readiness; and a battle is ex
pected before daylight to-morrow. • All Gov
ernment work is suspended, and all are under
arms, from General Donaldson down to the
unscientific laborers. '
The falling back of our troops was accom
plished at 8 o'clock this morning, and bridges
burned acres's. Harpeth river to retard the
transportation of rebel supplies. The cavalry
was handled prettily by General Wilson, be
tween Spring Hill'and Triune.
A. J. Smith's Corps is in line of battle, and
the situation is particularly grand. Forts
Negley, Morton, Cairo and Houston are alive
and the infantry movements perfectly satis
factory. Something must immediately trans
pire, as General Thomas is ready to strike no
matter how the rebels move.
