/ " Laboratory, A'. Y., May 2, 1855.
" MR. UPDOLPIIO WOLFE— Dear Sir: I can
not speak to highly of the purity ofyout Schi
, odam Schnapps. It is decidedly superior to
i•' anything of the kind in market. It is per
fectly free from the admixture ol fusil nil,
or of any of those amylio compounds which
produce such a mischievous and irreparable
effect upon the constitution, and which very
few samples of alcoholic distilled liquors are
without —most olthern being Inrgelj impreg
nated with it. I have rrersoutdly inspected
' the various process of distillation practiced
at Schiedam, and know that unusual care is
taken to separa'e the noxious elements
I (fern the pure alcohol, and your Schnapps is
a striking proof of its success. As a medici
nal agent for chronic and renal affections, 1
have successfully prescribed il, and recom
mend it as an agreeable cordisl and harm
less stimulant, and shall continue to do so;
as well as to use it as a source of pure alco
hol for chemical investigations and experi
ments. Yours obedient, 1.-AIAH DECK.
) 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 catarrhal complaints, foe. The
s letter is dated July 27, 1853:
" 1 take great pleasure in bearing highly
\ Creditable testimony to ils 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
s stimulation, I reuard it as one of the most
important remedies in chronic catarrhal af
fections, particularly thoso of tho genito uri
, nary apparatus. With much repsect, your
!*- obedient servant, CHARLES A LEAS.

that this state of things was Inevitable, and resigned
myself to meet the worst. At thin time (now about two
months), I heard your book highly spoken of, as con
taining some matter* reaching my core. On its receipt
and nertteal, I cannot express to you the relief It afforded
my distressed mind, and tho joy ils pages Imparted to
my wife, on learning that the great discovery of M. M.
Dosomenux provided a remedy. It opened a prospect

To the Treasurer and Commission
' ers nf Columbia County.
GBNTLEMKN :—You are doubtless aware,
that the semi annual interest on the funded
debt at the Coniinonweahh lulls due on the
impelled under a sense of duly to call your
attention to the necessity of prompt and im
mediate aclion to secure an early payment
ot the taxes due the Stale. The reputation
i and honor of the Stale are in a great mea
-1 Buro committed to your keeping, it is upon
the tax due from the ocvornl ooumies, 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 Ihe Stale, that tho gener
al drought and consequent failure of last
year's crops has deprived the farmer of his
usual ability to pay, and that owing to these
adverse eircuniMances, it will requite on
your part a more than usual efiort to collect
piomplly. I know that the highest incite
ment to duly that can be placed before the
people of this Commonwealm, is to assure
tliena that the honor of Ihe Commonwealth
demands such duty at their hands.
Which I would hold up this higher motive
to you, unit through yon to the people. I
would also remind youlhat by the Act of
Assembly of the 28th day of April, 1844, it
is provided that " any county paying into the
State Treasury its quota of lax levied on its
adjusted valuation, lilteou days prior to Ihe
first day of August, in any year, such county
shall be entitled to a i übalemont of five per
cent, upon the amount so paid." lum dis
posed to give this law a fair and liberal con
struction. Where the whole amount has ■
not been paid, but an amount approaching I
near to the whole, the deduction of five per
cent, will be made. 1 wouid suggest the >
propriety of allowing the abatement of five '
per cent, by the tax collector immediately to
the lax payer, believing that each a course
incite to a more prompt payment than when
the benefit is made accrue to the County
Y'ou will confer a great favor upon me, by
letting me know at as early a da!e 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, Yours respectfully.
