yj I beg leave to call the attention of the pub-
Tito to the following letters from physicians:
f " Laboratory, N. Y., May 2, 1855.
' " Ma. UPDOI.PIIO WOLFE — Dear Sir: I can
not speak to highly of the purity of your Sclii
qdam Schnapps. It is decidedly superior to
anything of the kind in market. It is per
fectly free from the admixture ot lusit nil,
or of any of those amy 1 c compounds which
produce such a mischievous and irreparable
effect upon the constitution, and which very
few samples of alcoholic distilled liquors are
without —most olthem being largely impreg
nated with it. I have personally inspected
' the various process of distillation practiced
at Schiedam, and know (hat unusual care is
taken to aepara'e the noxious elements
(rem the pure alcohol, and your Schnapps is
a striking proof of its success. As a medici
nal agent for chronic and renal affections, I
have successfully prescribed it, and recom
mend it as an agreeable cordial end harm
less stimulant, and shall continue to do so;
as well as to use it as a source of pure ulco
hol for chemical investigations and experi
ments. Yours obedient, ISAIAH DEC*.
Consulting Analytical Chemist."
Dr Charles A. Leas, Commissioner of
Health, Baltimore, writes as follows in rela
tion to the value of Schnapps as a remedy
in chronic catarrhnl complaints, fcc. The
letter is dated July 27, 1853:
"1 take great pleasure in bearing highly
creditable testimony to its efficacy as a rem
edial agent in the diseases for which you rec
ommend it. Having a natural tendency to
the mocous surfaces, with a slight degree of
stimulation, I regard it as one of the most
important remedies in chronic catarrhal af
fections, particularly those of tho genito uri
nary apparatus. With much repsect, your
obedient servant, CHARLES A LEAS.
" PHILADELPHIA, July 15, 1853.

that period has present, ail tbo eame in certain

your kindness, I am respectfully yours,

To Ihe. Treasurer and Commission
ers of Columbia County.
GENTLEMEN :—You are doubtless aware,
that the semi annual interest on the funded
debt of the Conimouwealih lulls due on the
impelled under a sense of duty to call your
attention to the necessity of prompt and im
mediate action to secure an early payment
ol the taxes due the Slate. The reputation
and honor of the Stale are in a great mea
sure committed to your keeping, it is upon
the tax due from lite oovorol oouniies, that I
reply mainly for the means of making pay
ment. lam aware that the late stringency
in the monetary affairs of the country, has
greatly crippled the Manufacturing and Com
mercial interests of the State, that the gener
al drought and consequent failure of last
year's crops lias deprived the farmer of his
nsual ability to pay, and that owing to these
adverse aircumstances, it will requite on
your part a more than usuul ofiort to collect
piomptly. I know tliut the highest incite
ment to duly '.hat can be placed before the
people of this Commonwealtn, is to assure
them that the honor of the Commonwealth
demands such duty at their hands.
' Which I would hold up this higher motive
to you, antf through yon to the people. I
would also remind jou that by the Act of
Assembly of the 28th day of April, 1844, it
is provided that " any county paying into the
Slate Treasury its quota of lax levied on its
adjusted valuation, filteou days prior to the
first day of August, in any year, such eoutity
shall be entitled to ai übatemont of five per
cent, upon the amount so paid." lum dis
posed to give this law a fair and liberal con
siruclion. Where the whole amount has ■
not been paid, but an amount approaching I
near to Ihe whole, Ihe deduction ol five per
cent, will be made. 1 wouid euggest the '
propriety of allowing the abatement of five '
per cent, by the tax collector immediately to
the tax payer, believing that each a course
incite to a more prompt payment than when
the benefit is made accrue to the County
Treasury. |
You will confer a great favor upon me, by
letting me know at as early a date* as it will
be possible for you to do so, with any rea
sonable degree of certainty, what amount of
money you will be able to furnish, and at
what time, Your- respectfully.
