DR: C. M. .T.A.citsvoN,
Twentytwo years since they were first intro
(laced into this country from Germany, dtuing
which time they have undoubtedly perforuied
more cure% and benelitted suffering humanity
to a greater extent, than any other remedies
known to the public.
These remedies will effectually mire Liver Com
plaint, Jaundice, T_YRPerda. Chronic
or Nervous Debility, p uuron idarrues,
Disci:teen of the Kid- 1.7 negs and ail diseas
es arising from a dts• ordered T. -
Stomach, or Intestines,
tionit the system, wver by Severe
Fevers, Eta .
There is na medicine extant impel to these
remedies in such cases. A tone and vigor is ira
parted to the whole system, the appetite is
strengthened, food Is enjoyed, the stomach di
gests prompUy, the blood and healthy, is ;vered; the cora—
plexion becomes sound the yellow
tinge is eradicated from the eyed, abloom Is
given to the cheeks, and the Weak and nervous
Invalid becomes a strong and healthy being.
Persons advanced In life, and feeling the hand
of time weighllig heavily upon them, with all
its attendant ills, will find In the use of this
BITTERS, or the,TONIC, an elixir that will in
stil new life Into their veins, restore In a meas
ure the energy and ardorof more youthful days,
build np their shrunken forms and give health
and happiness to their remaining Years.
It is a well established fact that frilly one-half
of the female portion of our popudallon
are seldom in the eri- T jopment of good
health; or, to use Li their -own expres
sion, "never feel well." They are lan
guid, devoid of all energy, erxtremelv nervous,
and have no appetite. •
To thii elms of *persons the BITTERS, or the
TONIC, is especinily recommended. ,
Weak and delicate children are made strong
by the use of tither of these remedies. They
will cure every' cave of 1 , 1101,18111.79, without

and rot in rebel prison pens; end_ have at lait
struck upon evidence that appears to remove
all doubt. This evidence, we are glad to say,
is of a character and comes from a source that
at once carries conviction and relieves us of
any liability to suspicion of unfairness that
might otherwise be entertained by our Repub
lican friends. We find it in the documentary .
record .of Mit immaculate authority, the
"Committee on the Conduct of the War"—
in a report made to that body by the chief of
the Impeachment Managers, 314 Gee. B. F.
Butler. which at this time, in the eyes of the
.Radical party of the cot/Nifty especially, adds
- great werg.nt to tilt testimony and serves to
give addildon.allimportance and interest to the
subject under consideration.
In his report Gen. Butler recites the facts
concerning the disagreement about the ex
change of prisoners existing when he was
entrusted with the duties of Commissioner by
the Secretary of War, in December, 1863. Ile
succeeded daring the following three months,
after much trouble, in arranging the basis of
an exchange, man for man and officer for
officer, with the rebel Commissioner, Mr.
Quid, with whom he held conference at Fort
ress Monroe. Ile then says:
wita r airlifsp t ilafsaints possible could be
adjusted, and would then.confer with him
farther, either meeting hits at City Point or .
'elsewhere for that ptrrp In the meantime
'the moduotaes of Bich and wounded and ape=
cial,exchanges should go on.
"Lieut. Gen. Grant visited FortreiS Monroe
on the Ist of April, being the first time I had
ever met him.
"To him the state of the negotiations as to
exchange was verbally communicated, and
Most emphatic verbal directions were ,re
ceived from the Lieutenant Genet:id:lotto take
any step by which another able bodied man
should be exchanged until ftutheiorderti from
P. A. CLUB.
On the 14th of April,' General Butler re
celsed a telegnun from General Grant at
Washington, atating that the whole subject
of exchange of prisoners had been referred to
him as follows:
Wasursurott, 11. p. m, April 14,18(14.
Maj. Gen. Butler: Your report respecting
negotiations with Comixtisaiouer Oold lot the
exchange of prisoners of war, has been refer
red to me for my orders.
Until examined by me, and my orders
thereon arereceive,d by you, decline all furth
er demonstrations. •
U. S. Gnanx, Lieut. Gen.
Six days later,- after General Grant bad
ho sent a long telegnirn to Gen
eral Butler, stating that he had-been empow
ered to, "give such instructions as I may
deem proper," and he gave instructions of
which General Butler says:
"Of course these instructions, in the then
state of negotiaticins, rendered any further
exchange impossible, and retaliation useless."
General Miller says he then made an effort
to have the sick and wounded excepted, so
that they might be exchanged, and he re
ceived the following telegram in reply
Wasursarox, 9.30 p. in., April 30,1861.
Hat Gen. B. F. Butler: Receive all the
sick and wounded the Confederate authorities
will send you, but send no more in exchange.
U. S. Gamer, Lieut. Gen.
Uwin this extraordin "instruction" Gen
eral Butler remarks as Bows:
"To obtain delivery of even sick and wound
ed prisoners without any return wouldbe a
somewhat difficult operation, save that the,
enemy, by giving us our wounded and sick'
in their band, we retaining all the rebel sick
and wounded in ours, burdened us with the
care and cost of all the sick and - Wounded of
both aides—an operation of which it is diffi
cult to see the strategatic value,and only tote
defended because of its humanity in rescuing
our wounded from the destitution of seerings
permitted to them by Confederates."
In August the question of exchanging pris
oners was again up, the rebel Commissioners
having renewedthe ofity to give man for man
and officer for officer. But Gen. Grant inter
posed, and in a telegram to Gen. Btler, da-
ted City Point, August 18, 1864, said:
• On the subject of exchange, I differ with
Gen Iliteluasck ; it Is hard on our men held in-
Southern prisons not to exchange them, but
is humanity to those lett in the ranks to fight
our battles. Every man released on parole I
or otheedise becomes an active soldier against i
us at once either directly or indirectly. If we
commence a system of exchange which libe
rate, all prisoners taken, we will have to tight
on until the whole South is exterminated. If
we hold those men caught, they amount to
no more than dead men. At this particular
time, to release all rebel prisoners North
would insure Sherman's defeat, and would
compromise our safety here. -
H. 8. Greaser, Lieut. Gen.
Here we have a dill and free avowal that
the leaving of tens of thousands of poor Fede
ral soldiers, whose patriotism and bravery
carried them to the &oat of battle, to starve,
and rot, and die in rebel prison . pens was a
matter of studied policy—a part of the tactics
by which General Grant made war upon the
rebellion. And the people will remember
that while this inhuman policy was being
mercilessly carried out they were told-by the
government and by the organs of the admini
stration that the whole difficulty about the
exchange was on the part of the rebels—that

more highly the genius which conceived the
plan and the success won at so great a cost.

GEN. FORREST AS A DELEGATE.
The Rebel Cavalry General's Viewe
nesPeettag the Democratic National
The Memphis correspondent of the Louis
ville " journal" says: "I didn't want to go,
to that National Democratic Convention,"
said Forrest. "In fact, it did not - cross my
mind until it was urged on me, by some of the
most prominent citizens and politicians in
Tennessee. I thought at the start that it
would be imprudent to send me ; but they
argued differently, and when I at last gave
my consent, I did not feel at liberty to retire
and leave my friends to hold the bag. Two
or three times, in the State Convention, while
they were debating the question, I had half
a mind to draw out, and failed to do so be
cause I consider when a man has put him
self in the hands of others he has no right to
be run off by false delicacy."
" You mean to go, of course?"
"To be sure 1 do. It won't be more cu
rious, I reckon, to see me in a Democratic
convention than it was to see Joe Brown in
a Radical convention."
"Rut he's recanted all his sins, and you
havn't; in other words, he goes with the ru
ling power, and you don't."
" There is a good deal of mistake about
that," he answered. " The Radicals like Joe
Brown because lie is a Radical. I suppose
the same rule would apply to me with the
Democrats. Why, sir, the warmest reception
I've had since the war was from General
Sherman.. I'm not afraid of the Democratic
soldiers or the Republican soldiers. I like
General Hancock, and I don't believe there
is a brave or reasonable Union soldier who
dislikes or doubts me as a man. I went into
the war because my vote had been unable to
preserve the peace. I took a through ticket,
of course, and L fought and lost as much as
any one else; certainly as much as I could.
Now the war's over, and I'm under oath to
keep my parole. Suppose I consider-myself
an outlaw. anti refuse to take part in what's
going on, does that help me to keep my oath?
Won't folks that are disposed to be ill-natured

what they have said. Now I give the coun

"None whatever, except as the Nashiille
Convention committed me. I guess the dele

will go for. We don't want to dictate to the
party. What we do want is the best man.
It anat because we hate Grant that we are
anxious to beat his ticket. It's because the
Radicals won't give us a chance if they keep
in power. Look at Tennessee. That's Radi
calism, and that's why I'rn a Derocinrat'irc
`You are certainly prudent"
"And so I ought to be." •
There is a good deal of misconception
about Forrest's life before the war. I have
seen it stated in one place that he was a negro
trader, and in another that he was a gambler.
Neither is .true. Before the war he stood as
well as any man in West Tennessee or North
Mississippi.. His father was a Middle Tenn
essee blacksmith of irreproachable character,
and, though the advantages of Bedford were
extremely limited, he always held his head
up, and had made by successful speculation
when the war broke out at least half a million
of dollars. All this he lost. As for his moral
character, ,it never was suspected. Ile has
been through life a sober, hard-working, keen
trading man, devoted to hishome imtl respec
ted by every one. He- is not now a rich but
a poor man. Ile lost all he had by the war.
But his energy is matchless, and there is little
doubt that he will rebuild his ruined fortunes.
In his own household he is a very devoted
husband and father. I don't think he has any
ambition to figure as a politican. His present
attitude as leader of the Tennessee delegation
—which he will undoubtedly be at New
York—b an accident. The people desired
him to go as an illustration, perhaps as a test,
of the question of exclusion or'non-exclusion
of representative Confederates from affairs.
I venture to predict .that his appearance in
the Democratic Convention will be hailed as
a good omen, and that he will make a speech
before that body which will serve as an ex
cellent campaign document. lam rather in
clined to think that his preference is for llan-
I cock; but I have no right to say, for he is not
, communicative on the subject. If he is for
I Hancock, it is on the idea that one good sol

hardened old infidel who used it. During all

A JILTED LoVzit Asx.s 'Asivicz.—Queer
questions are sometimes propounded to edi
tors. "A Lo - ver," 'who says be risked all he
had on petroleum and lost it,. finds that Md•
course of true love• does not run so smooth
now as it did before the oil gave out. When
he was supposedbe toe rich, his sweetheart
was sweet indeed, and so were all - the other
girls of'his acquaintance; but now thathe is
poor, and in debt, and with no. prospect 01
ever being well off, his betrothed and all his
emale friends treat him coolly, and make
sport of his nob, which be says he must own
is of unusual size. Ile therefore writes to the
editor for advice as lei what course he shall
pursue. "I have heard," he says, "that ni
lady-love is actually going to get married in ss
few weeks to a rich young man In a neigh
boring village, and, what I would like to
know is, if there is not some 'legal way by.
which I can prevent her doing so. Please
let me know right off, as delays arc danger
ous." To which we answer, don't make a
fool of yourself, but let her marry whoever
she pleases. You should thank your stars
that you have got rid of her, for the girl who
would desert a man in the way you say she
has, isn't worth having, and will be a Morn
in'the side of her husband. "There arc as
good fish in the seams ever were caught," and
. t you are desperately anxious to be married,
depend upon it you can find plenty of true
hearted girls still in the country, who will
not discotirage your attentions if you are a
man ol the right mettle.
TII4 ZANESVILLV. (Ohio) "Courier' is ra
ponsilfie for the following Rev. mel
Clawsbn, a Methodist preacher of eccentric manners, sometimes called the `wild man,'
was very popular in Western Virginia some
twenty years ago. lie was cross-eyed and
wiry made, and very dark skinned for a white
man. At times he was surprisingly' eloquent,
always excitable, and once in a while extra
vagant. He once accompanied a brother mi
nister, Rev. Mr. R—, a prominent city
pastor, en a visit to a colored church. Mr.
It— gave the colored preacher the hint, and
of course Clawson was invited to preach. lie
did so, and during the sermon set the impul
sive Africans to shouting all over the house.
This in turn set Clawson to extravagant words
and actions, and he leaped out of the pulpit
like a deer, and began to shake the hands of
the colored brethren and mix in quite happily.
Then pressing through the crowd he found
brother R—, and sitting down beside him,
he threw his arms around his neck, and with
the tears streaming down his face, he said
" Brother R—, I almost wish I had been
born a nigger. These folks have more reli
gion than we have." Well, well,' said brother

SOUIVD ADVICE.—We heartily endorse the
theory of. an exchange that "there is not
enough of the old fashioned gardening prac-
deed among the people. The time was when
housekeepers, on a very small piece of ground
behind the kitchen, were able to raise the
greater portion of the 'greens' needed in the
culinary econctgay. _ Lim complain
that they are forced to pay too much for corn,
salad, beans, peas, while at the same time
they have the ground at home to raise what
they want ill this line at a trifling cost. An
hour's work every evening in a garden,would
put money into every man's pocket, and at
the saute time increase his wealth. After be
ing confined in a doge office or workshop
all day, a brief exercise -in the fresh, pure air,
digging the earth, trailing vines, trimming
bushes and propping trees, is what every
tun needs to hold his body and soul togeth
er. The man who cultivates even a fence
corner is contributing his share toward the
welfare of community.
Trim New York Tribune of Thursday last,
with more candor than discretion; makes the,
confession that the whole "reconstruction"
policy of Congress—which the Radicals have_
been proclaiming as the only hope for a com
plete restoration of the Union—was con
ceived simply for the purpose of keeping that
party in power, despite of its utter condem
nation by the people. Here is the coon.s
sion in the language of the Tribune itself -
"The Republicans, therefore, were abso
lutely compelled to enfranchise the Southeril
blacks or submit to be expelled from power
by the Southern whites. Had they attempt
ed to bid against the Democrats for the favor
and support of the late rebels, they would
inevitably have been outdone. 'Blood: is
thicker than water,' and the Democrats and
rebels united would have outnumbered and
ousted the Republicans as surely as that five
are more than four."
A IttIIDEM, with as much of the element
of dramatic horror in it as if it formed the
subject of fiction, was recently committed in
Munich; Bavaria, by the Canoness Julia de
Evergenyi, alias the Baroness Marta Vey.
The Canoness had an intrigue with the Count
Gustavus Chorinsity, en Austrian officer, 7 10
was married, and had separated from kis
wife, who lived in retirement in Munich.
The canoness found the existence of the •
Countess Chorinsky an obstacle to her
schemes, and resolved to kill the unhappy
lady. She accordingly left Vierrep for Mu
nich, found means to introduce herself to the
Countess under the name of the Baroness
Vay, poisoned her in her apartments and
went back' to Vienna. She was tracked,
brought to trial, and found guilty of the mur
der, and sentenced to twenty years strict
confinement—one week of which is annually
to be passseil in solitary confinement—to
loss of nobility, and to the repayment of the'
cost of the trial.
