Bai-.x Bl'RNT. We learn that the barn

Jowiii-hip. was destroyed by tire, about VI
o'clock on Thursday night, January 14th,
together with 14 tons of hay, a large quanti
ty of straw, one yoke oxen, and If head of
sheep. The probable loss is about SoOO
a-itke b.trti Wits but mi old one. The hay
and straw is perhaps the most serious loss
in Mr. Chase, as he has considerable stock
yj feed and catmot replace those articles at
iuy price, ou account of the scarcity of fod

Among tke late news from Xewberne,
Nonh Carolina, we find the following item :
'"Ekren hundred persons in Newberne
'jive taken the tfath annexed to the Presi
yeiit s Amnesty Proclamation."
As a further evidence of the favorable re
tvption of the Amnesty Proclamation, wo
me several extracts from the Newbeme
-4 of Jan. 9tb, which in on our table :
Every day seems to add to thestrength of
the I nion cause in Eastern North Caro
.... That a deep seated Union feel
permeates the mass cf the people in this
tate, we have no doubt. We have almost
"aily evidence of this fact from the large
fiunitjer who come within our lines, and a
vail themselves 0f the President's Amnesty
Proclamation." -
is the effect of that Proclamation of
!neh the editers of the Copperhead organ
Jn this place said "The conditions offered
ere such as a high-spirited people, such
( a People as the sons of the sires of Sev-'enty-six
ought to be," would nobefc

This prosecution grew outof an occurrence
at a political meeting at Curwensville, pre
vious to the October election ; at which time
Geo. A. Bloom, the prosecutor, struck Wil
liam Addleman and broke open a fresh a se
vere wound received at Gettysburg Addle
man bavin? had his lower jaw badly shatter
ed by a ball at that hotly contested battle.
It is alleged by the prosecutor, that the de
fendants after the tight in Curwensville went
to the house of III Mini with the intent of
tarring and feathering him, for this assault
upon a wounded and sick soldier and hence
the prosecution for riot. Cpon the trial of
this cause, we are told, that the defence
clearly proved by a number of persons, that
the prosecutor, George A. Bloom was of
bad reputation for truth, and that the testi
mony of himself and wife was conflicting
and contradicted in material point by other
evj.lence m the ease that it was ciearly. es-
tawished !' evidence that S. G. Pyles could
not possihiv nnve twen at iioom s nouse, as
he was at horn;! ,mJ in boa st th2 hourtixeu
by th? witnesses for the Coinatonwcaltii, as

are also informed, that the counsel for the
pro-eeution endeavored to excite the politi
cal )rcj'.'licns and feelings ot the jurors
against tiie i i.-ooers the jury being divi
ded 10 to '2 politically and that but for this
effort, at least Pyles would have been acquit
ted, if n;t the others. We have deemed it
but duo to the defendants to make this ex

Although not disposed to favor or recommend
Patent Medicines in general, through distrust of
their ingredients and effects ; I yet know of no
sufficient reasons why a man may not testify to
the benefits he believes himself to have received
from any simple preparation in the hope that he
may thus contribute to the benefit of others.
I do this the more readily in regard to Hof-
lanu s trerman Hitters, prepared by Dr. C M.
Jackson, of this city, because I was prejudiced a
gainst them for many years, under the impres
sion that they were chiefly an alcoholic mixture.
Iam indebtwd to my friend Robert Shoemaker,
Esq., fur the removal of this prejudice by proper
tests, and for encouragement to try them, when
suffering from great and long continued debility.
The use of three bottles of these Bitters, at the
beginning of the present year, was followed by
evident relief, and restoration to a degree of bod
ily and mental vigor which 1 had not felt for six
months before, and had almost despaired of re
gaining. I therefore thank God and my friend
for directing me to the uso of them.

of the digestive organs are speedily removed. We
have no hesitation in stating that, if these Bitters
were freely used among our soldiers, hundreds of

7ilxr. Jones Evnus. Well, gentlemen. your
HoofHnd's German Bitters has saved my life.
There is no mistake in this. It is vouched for
by numbers of my comrades, some of whose names
are appended, and who were fully cognizant of
all tiie circumstances or. mv case. 1 am. and
have been lor the last four years, a member of
Sherman s celebrated battery, and under the im
mediate command of Capt. R B. Ayres. Through
the expo sure attendant upon my duties, I was
attacked in November last with inflammation of
the lungs, and whs for seventy-two days in the
hospital. This was followed by great debility,
heightened by an attack of dysentery. I was then
removed from tho White House, and sent to this
city on board trio Steauter Mate of Maine, from
which I landed on the 23tii Of Juno. Since that
time 1 have been about us low as any one could
be and still retain a spark of vitality. For a
week or mote I was scarcely able to swallow any
thing, and if I did force a morsel down, it was
immediately thrown up again.
1 could not even keep a glass of water on my
stomach. Life could not lastunder these circum
stances; a lid. accordingly, the physicians who
had been working faithfully, though unsuccess
fully, to rescue ino from the grasp of the dread
Archer, frankly told me they could do no more
for me. and advised me to see a clergyman, and
to make such disposition of my limited funds as
best suited me. An acquaintance who visited me
at the hospital. Mr. Frederick Steinborn. of Sixth
below Arch Street, advised me, as a forlorn hope,
to try your L'ittcrs, and kindly procured a bottle.
From the time I commenced taking them tho
gloomy shadow of death receded, and I am now
thank God for it. getting better. Though 1 have
taken but two bottles. I have gained ten pounds,
and I feel sanguine of being permitted to rejoin
my wife and daughter, from whom I have heard
nothing for eighteen mouths : for. gentlemen, I
am a loyal Virginian, from the vicinity of Front
Royal. To your invaluable Bitters lowethe cer
tainty of life which has taken place of vague fears
to your Bitters will 1 owe tho glorious privi
lege of again clasping to my bosom those who are
dearest to me in life.
Very truly yours, Isaac Ma love.
