COBSESPONDENOE OF THE JOUBNAL.
Letter from Philipshnrg.
Philipsbcrg, Pa., Feb. 1st, 1864.
Dear Journal : The laws of God, and
of man, were made to be obeyed, yet how
often are they disregarded especially the
laws of God. In Luke 14th chapter, 12th
and 13th verses, we read : "Then said he
also to him that bade him, When thou mak
est a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends,
i.or thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor
thy rich neighbors, lest they also bid thee a
gain, and a recompense be made thee. But
wheu thou niakest a feast call the poor, the
maimed, the lame, the blind." And what
is the promise to them that fulfill this pre
cept? It is : "And thou shalt be blessed ;
for they cannot recompense thee ; for thou
hhalt be recompensed at the resurrection of
the just. ' ' Why is it that this law is not o
beyed ? Who ever saw or heard of theoor,
the maimed, the lame and the blind being
invited to partake of a feast in this town, or
in that within tilty miles of this? None !But
who ever heard of a feast that the rich, the
high, the fashionables the cod-fish and the
mackerel aristocracy were not invited to eat
and be filled? "Oh, consistency thou art a
jewel !" Humanity, obey the laws ot j-our
Creator if you would enjoy the happiness ol
the future world. If you only wish to keep
up to time in this world, and for it alone,
then carry out the programme of the mack
erel aristocracy, and you will be checked
through, and no questions asked as to your
morality or "greenback" bump.
Our citizens were called on to witness the
departure of the members of Co. D 53d
Penn'a V olunteers, for a second time, last
Friday afternoon. These brave and noble
soldiers first set out for the seat of war 28
months ago. As I stated in a previous let-
r. they were in ail the battles that the ar
my of the Potomac was engaged in. and had
re-enlisted for three years. They had a fur
l.irrh of thirty days, and as that time had
now expired they accordingly took up the
line of march for their remievous Iiarris
lnirt,'. The whole-souled and patriotic land
lord, James II. Galer of the Conrad House,
gavo the boys one of his sumptuous dinners
on the day of their departure. The citizens
ocorted tluni to the depot, with drums
playing and colors living. An address was
thtn read by Robert Lloyd, Esq., written by
A. A. Bradin, Esq., complimenting the boys
on the past, and wishing them happiness in
the future. The stern veterans, though
tln-v had been inured to hardships and many
? yirg st ones, since the former occasion ot
i Id ling their fathers, mothers, w ives, chil
dren, sisters, brothers, relatives and friends
firewcll, could not conceal the emotion that
was Mriving to escape from their brave and
M iiijiathotic hearts. It is a sad moment for
the .soldier, when he bids adieu to his family
and friends not only is it a sad moment? to
the soldier, but 'fur all 'who gather around
him. Tears unbidden start from many an
yn. b:if from none do they move the true
H.Iiiier so much as those that start from the
y i f woman and roll down her soft and
giowinsr cheeks. The poet truthfully wrote
'"Is there a man can-stand unmoved.
And mark dear woman's tearful eye. "
The boys cot off in good style, and I hope,
sin 1'ieiy hope, that each and every one may
ruiiie liurne afb and sound, and live to enjoy
the fruits that their , brave and generous
hearts achieved. Good luck to you. boys,
ami may the blessing of God rest upon you
is my wish and prayer.

him with violating the pledgee on which lie
had been elected, and quoted from his Har

around for a War Democrat and saw Samuel

wanted to know if he had gone to the demo
cratic caucus to find out whom they were
going to nominate. No, said Smith, I smelt
the atmosphere of the concern, and decided
to keep out of it. Mallory asked him if he
hadn't gone to the Republican caucus.
Smith replied that he had gone to a Union
caucus, and that his constituents endorsed
him for doing it. Wadsworth deemed it to
be his interest here to mix in. He, too,
charged Smith with violating pledges made
to his coustiuents, and said he had came
here and voted for the revolutionist and
abolitionist Colfax for Speaker, and that he
didn't object to his going over to that side
of the House, but did object to his having
run as candidate of the Union Democratic
party, when he intended to betray them.
Smith pftorted that these gentlemen hadn't
been so anxious to claim him as the Union
Democratic candidate during the canvass.
That the so-called Union Democratic paper,
the Louisville Journal, had done its best to
defeat him. That he wasn't supported by a
single Union Democratic paper in his State,
and that the influence of every one of these
so-called Union Democratic Congressmen
had been openly or secretly given against
him and for Juo" W. Menzies ; but that now
they were very anxious, though they had
denounced him as a radical in his district,
to call him a Union Democrat here, and so
drag him into the support of their policy,
which his people had so emphatically con
demned at the' polls. The gentleman had
arraigned him for voting forCo)fax. lie
could tel! him that if he accepted the arraign
ment he took up the gauntlet they had thrown
down, and would try the matter before the
people of his State where lie challenged
them to meet him. He had letters now
from slave holders in Kentucky, owning
more slaves than the whole of these Union
Democrats here, heartily endorsing his
course, and he had never yet had a single
letter of complaint from his distric concern
Bv this time Brutus Clay was stirred up.
He wanted to know whether, when the gen
tlemen dealt in these insinuations, or open
attacks on his colleacrue for

were so explicit ; he had been attacked for
that vote, and he wanted to see whether
they meant to repeat the slander circulated
in certain papers, that he had violated pledg

vote for a War Democrat ; in fact he was
rather oreiliudieed a-rainst Democrats. In

Although not disposed to favor or recommend
Patent Medicines in general, through distrust of
their ingredients and effects; I jet 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 be
may thus contribute to the benefit of others.
I do this the more readily in regard to Hoof
land's German Bitters, prepared by Dr. C. M.
Jackson, of this city, because I was prejudiced a
gainst them lor many years,. under the impres
sion that they were chiefly an alcoholic mixture.
I am indebted to my friend Robert Shoemaker,
Esq , for 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 I 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 use of them.
Philad'a., June, 23, 1851.- J. Nbwtos Brows.
There are many preparations sold under the
nam ot Bitters. put up in quart bottles, compoun
ded of the cheapest 'whiskey or common rum. cos
ting from 20 to 40 cents per gallon, the taste dis
guised by Anise or Coriander Seed.
This clajis of Bitters has caused and will contin
ue to cause, as long as they can be sold, hundreds
to die the death of the drunkard. By their use
the system is kept continually undor the infiu
enceof Alcoholic Stimulants of the n orst kind. the
desire for Liquor is created aud kept up, and the
result is all the horrors attendant upon a drunk
ard's life and death.
For those who desire and toill have, a Liquor
Bitters, we publish the following receipt. Get
One. Bottle lloojla-iid n Irttnutu liittcrx and mix
with Three Quarts of Gooit Braiuiy or Whiskey.
and the result will be a preparation that will far
e.rcel in medicinal virtues and true excellence
any of the numerous Liquor Bitters in the mark
et, and will coat much less. You will have all
the virtues of Hoolland's Bitters in connection
with a good article of Liquor. at a much less price
than these inferior preparations will cost you.
ATTENTION, SOLDIERS !
AND THE FRIENDS OF SOLDIERS.
Wc call the attention of all having relations or
friends in the army to the fact that Hoofland's
German Bitters'' will euro nine tenths of the dis
eases induced by exposures and privations inci
dent to camp life. In the lists, published almost
daily in the newspapers, on the arrival of the
sick, it will be noticed that a very large propor
tion are suffering from debility. Every case of
that kind can be readily cured by Hob-Sand's Ger
man Bitters. Diseases resulting from disorders
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
lives migut be saved that otherwise will be lost.
We call particular attention to the following re
markable and well authenticated cure of one the
nation'g horoes, whose life, to use bis own lan
guage, '-has been saved by the Bitters :'
PAiLAbELPHiA, August 23rd, 1862.
UTe-ws. Jones 6r Horn. Well, gentlemen.your
Hoonaud s German Bitters has eared my life
There is uo 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 the circumstances ot my case. 1 am, and
have been tor the last four years, a member of
Sherman s celebrated battery, and under the im
mediate command of Capt. R B. Ayrcs. Through
the expo sure attendant upon my duties, I was
attacked in November last with inflammation of
the lungs, aud was for seventy-two days in the
hospital. This was followed by great debility,
heightened by an attack of dysentery. I wastben
removed from tbo White House, and sent to this
city on board the Steamer State of Maine,''from
which I landed on the 2Sth of June. Since that
time 1 have beeu about as low as any one could
be and still retain a spark of vitality. For a
week or more I was scarcely able to t wallow any
thing, and if I did force a morsel down, it wag
immediately thrown up again.
1 could not even keep a glass of water on my
stomach. Life could not last under these circum
stances; aud. accordingly, the physicians who
had been working faithfully, though unsuccess
fully, to rescue me from tho 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
ot the hospital, Mr. Frederick Steinborn. of Sixth
below Arch Street, advised me, as a forlorn hope,
to try your Bitters, and kindly procured a bottle.
F'rom the time I commenced takrnir them tho
gloomy shadow of death receded, and I am now.
thank God for it, getting better. Though I 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 months: for. gentlemen, I
am a loyal Virginian, from the vicinity of Front
Royal. To your invaluable Bitters I owe the cer
tainty of life which has taken place of vague fears
to your Bitters will 1 owe the glorious privi
lege of again clasping to my bosom those who are
dearest to me in life.
Very truly yours, Isaac Maixs:.
