LIIO OFX,A.N 13' ti;
DR. C. M. JACKSON,
Twenty-two years since they were first intro
duced into this country from Germany, during
which time they have undoubtedly performed
more cum, end beneritted suffering humanity
to a greater extent, than any other remedies
known to the public.
These remedititswillefibctually cure Liver Com
plal n t , Jaundice, azettels, Chronie
or Nervous Debility. VlChronic Disrrhcea,
Diseases of. the Rid- ..L' neys and all diseas
es arising from a dis- ordered Liver,
Stomach, or intestines. • ,
Resulting from any name whatever ; Prostra
Lion or thrtSystem, induced by Severe
Labor, Hardships, Exposure,
There is no; medicine extant equal to these
remedies in such cases. A tone and vigor Is im
parted to the whole system, the appetite is
strengthened, food . is enjoyed, the stomach di
gests promptly, the blood is purified, the com
plexion becomes sound and healthy, the yellow
tinge is eradicated from the eyes, a bloom 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 weighing heavily upon them, with all
its attendant. is, 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 ardor of more youthful days,
build up their shrunken forms and give health
and happiness to their remaining years,
It is a well established fact that fully one-half
of the female portion of our population
aro seldom In the en- T joyment of good
health •, or, to -,use .I_4 their own expres
sion, - "never f eel well." They are lan
guid, devoid of all energy, extremely nervous,
and have no appetite.,
To this class of persons the BIITEIIB, or the
TONIC, Is especially recommended.
Weak and delicate children are made strong
by the •use of tither of these remedies. They
will cure every case of MARAB,III7B, without
tail. Thousands of certificates have accumula
ted in the bands H of the proprietor, but space
will allow of but few. These, it will be observed,
are men of note and of such standing that they
must be believed.

The subjoined extract from a recent pri
vate letter from Howell Cobb, of Georgia, is
made public :
"I entered the contest with a desire for the
success of our ticket Which I never felt be
fore. Wearied with the bitter struggles of
the past years, my heart panted for peace,
quiet and repose. In the election of Gover
nor Seymour, and the success of the Demo
cratic party, I felt, in common with all good
people, there was not only a prospect but a
certainty of peaccatt enduring peace; that
it would lift up our own desolated section
and give it new days of prosperity, restoring,
too, the past relations of brotherhood between
the two sections, and making us once more a
happy and united people—united not merely
in name, but in heart, spirit and truth. I
was induced to break a long self-imposed si
lence, and address the people of Georgia, to
induce a like feeling on their part. Well,
imagine if you can, the surprise with which
I have read the comments of the Radical pa
pers on that speech, perverting its meaning,
distorting and construing my words of.peace
and hope into words of blood and revolution.
I am made the advocate of strife and war,
When from every pore of my heart there
=Taw gushing the most earnest and sincere
desire for peace—lasting, eternal peace. Do
me the favor to read a revised and correct
copy of that speech, which I send you, so
that our friends, at least at the North, may
truthfully judge me."
PAISICIeB CONCLUSION.—The night before
the last election in Connecticut, one of Gov.
English's supporters was in Stamford, smo
king, and cogitating upon the coming fight.
Although hoping for the best, his confidence
was not overweening; but a circumstance
occurred which raised his spirits fifty per
cent. An Emeralder came tip to him, and
divining the doubt that worried his mind,
said: "Ari, Mather Doolan, don't be on
alsy ; we're shun to bate 'em asuiyhow."
"Don't be too. sure, Tom," replied Doolan;
" if we beat them it will be by the akin of our
teeth and hard work." "We must bate 'em,
Mr. Dciolan; we can't help "Bow is
that, Tom?" asked Doolan "Don't yer see
the Lord is on our aide, man alive ?" ex
plained Tom. " Bow do you make that out?"
said Doolan. "An' allure an' I'll tell ye;
didn't forty-seven voters die in Sttutmford fast

Total, •- $1,540, 0.,5 8,583
The above total,therefore, represents the
exact amount which the Treasury of the
United States has received from sources other
than loans' since the close of the war.
The reader will please notice that a large
part of this stupendous sum is in gold.
About 5547,000p00 of it was received in du-
ties on imported goods; and if we reckon
the premium at 40, it will amount to
$218,800M so that the total revenues of the
Government, since the close of the war, reach
the amazing sum of more than $1,758,000,000
in lawful money, or nearly three-fourths of
the public debt
Dinny, agiii I
The fact that such a deluge of revenue has
been poured into the Treasury since the close
of the war, naturally leads to the inquiry,
what has been done with it. Before pursuing
this inquiry, let us pause a moment to ask
what use the common-sense of the taxpayeis
would naturally expect and demand should
be made of se prodigious a revenue. The
expectation would, of course, be that it
would have gone to diminish the public debt.
Unsophisticated common sense can reconcile
itself to no other disposal of a revenue so
enormous. But when we turn to the refiortal
and statements of the Secretary of the TM-
spry—the highest authority on such subjects
—we find that the public debt has been re
duced only some 440,000,000. In his an
nual report for 1866, that officer stated that
the public debt reached its highest point on
the 81st of August, 1865, when its amount, I
less the cash in the Tree-illy, was $2,757,803- I
686. On the Ist of September, IE6B, as we I
learn from the official statement of the same'
authority, the amount of the public debt, less
the cash in the Treasury, was $2,535,614,818.
The total diminution Of the debt is, therefore,
only $222,1: %VS, out of an income amount
ing to $1,540,658,583, although a large part of
this income was in gold, and riot a dollar of
gold has been paid to diminish the public
debt. It appears, therefore, that between
thirteen and fourteenlundred million dollars
have been spent since the close of the war,
by the party whose extravagance and mis
management have so damaged the public
credit that the premium on gold haa been in
creased 20 per cent. since 1865.
In the face of so enormous and so indispu
table a revenue, it is no wonder that the Re
publican party feels pressed by the persistent
demand of the country to know what has
become of so much money. Mr. Edward At
kinson, with the assistance of his backers,
has invented a fiction, never thought of till
now, which makes the maximum debt six ar
seven hundred millions greater than the Sec
retary of the Treasury reported it to be when
at the highest point, and accounts for the dis
appearance of so much revenue by saying
that more than eight hundred millions of it
have gone to extinguish the principal of the
debt. A fiction which is in such flagrant con
flict with the official statements of the Secre
tary of the Treasury, is ridiculous. If it be
true, as Mr. Atkinson pretends, that one
fourth of the public debt has been extin
guished since the close of the war, why has
the public credit been steadily depreciating,
as is attested by the constant rise in the pre
mium on gold? This last question involves
an argument-to which there can be so valid
answer. If, as Mr. Atkinson pretends, the
expenses of the Government have been less
since the war than in Mr. Buchanan's time,
and if more than eight hundred millions of
the public debt have been paid, the necessary
consequence would have been a. great _im
provement in the credit of the Government
If any citizen gets confused by sophistical,
dishonest figures, here is a test by which he
can easily satisfy himself of their falsity.
Under good management, the credit of the
Government should have steadily improved
from the close of the war forward. The pre
mium on gold, instead of constantly rising,
should have constantly fallen. If eight hun
dred millions of the public debt had really
been paid, and the Government had really
cost less since the war than it did under Pre
sident Buchanan, the premium on gold, in
stead of having gone up twenty per cent.,
would have gone down at least twenty per
cent., and the credit of the Government
would be by this time so far re-established
that we should be on the eve of resuming
Among the half-dozen conclusive refuta
tions of Mr. Atkinson.'S foolish and impudent
pretences, this is, perhaps, the shortest. They
are utterly inconsistent with the sinking cre
dit of the Government, is consequence of
which the premium on gold has nearly dou
bled since the close of the war. The credit
of the Government is regulated by the same
principles as that of a merchant. If a man's
notes are selling at a discount, it is a sure ev
idence that those woo understand his affairs
think them badly mismanaged. The won
derful things which Mr. Atkinson pretends
the Republican party has done, are utterly .
inconsistent with the doubling of the pre
mium on gold since 1865. This great sinking
of the public credit being an incontestible
fact, the pretences we have referred to are,
of course, a baseless fiction, and an insult to

ANOTIIETt rAPER ON THE BAYS BUItJECT
(From the N. Y. Journal of Gommerce.)
Some credulous 'reader of the speeches
made 'from the political rostrum may ask
what has become of the vast resources of re
venue from which "ove-third of the public
debt has been paid since August, 1835."
There has been no such payment, and the
pretense is a political fraud. The last de
tailed annual statement ended with June 30,
1837, but we have at hand from Mr. Wells
the totals in round numbers of the financial
movement since that date. We present this
first to clear the way for what follows:

"Amnia, Taxes, August 9,1888.
"I am at this time traveling fora promi

I was born and have spent most of my life
in Cincinnati, and it - is only sinew the war
that I have called Philadelphia my 'home.
My parents are still residing m your city.
"Since my arrival in Texas"hare traversed
moat of the State, trarelin,g a rat deal alone, ,
on horseback, and have passed in this way
through many of those counties which are said
to be most ri/s with "lawlessness and crime."
On no octane's have I attempted to mead the
fact that am a Northern man, yet I . have met
with neighing bus kindness everywhere.
" Shortly after arriving in this State, while
riding along a dismal, lonely road, through a
portion of the country which bears quite a"
reputation abroad for murders and robberies,
imagine my surprise at meeting a solitary
harsemim, wearing the unifcirm of a United
States !soldier. He wadding leisurely along.

fellow,' I said, are you not &Dela I" 'Afraid
.of what? he asked, evidently surprised at
my question. ' Why to pus through a plate

for he was one, I've knocked 'round exten

with me - yet. You see I am apt a carpet
" The people where I have been are hard
at work, and have little or nothing to say in
mind to polities. Those whom I have heard
express their opinion, seem to apprehend yet
more oppressive measures front Congress.
No wages are Sufficient to induce freedmen
to work steady. They talk politica during
the day, and their nights are consumed in
stealing and noisy drunkenness.
"The horrible murders of Union men, of
which we hear so much, seer tio be gotten up
by the men sent to Austin for the purpose of
framing the constitution, but who have done
nothing but send to Washington lists of out
rages never committed.
"The following I submit es a fair sample
of the freedman as be is.
"About noon the other day! reined up my
horse near a filthy looking hovel", in front of
which a greasy, strapping son of Henn lay at
full length on a bench. ' Hallo, uncle I.' The
same individual rolled lazily over, and be
stowing upon me a look of Contempt, said,
'Look a here; did you speak to me?' •
'Yes, I replied ; have yen any corn 1 0

"The bright and shining light of the Loyal
League gave me another withering look, and
at length said, 'A dollar and a half, provided
you teed him yourself. I don't feed no d--d
white man's horse, I don't'
"This kind of an offer I declined, and ri
ding on a mile farther, stopped at the resi
dence of an ex-rebel, with whom I remained
that afternoon and night, to find my bill in
the morning, 'not a cent, sir; you are always
welcome ; and if I can be of any assistance,
consider me your servant'
"This letter I have written from a sense of
diity. I was an abolitionist always. I left
Cincinnati a member of one of the first regi
ments organized there, and was in most of
the battles in Virginia. At the close of the
war I was a Major of one of the finest regi

have been an uncompromising Radical.

sesses no merit apart from a true statement
of facts as I have seen them.

"P. 5.—1 give Cincinnati as my address.

The reader will bear in mind that the tes
timony in this article is from the Radical
aide; it is the testimony of unwilling wit
nesses; the kind distinguished by lawyers as
the best and most undoubted—a party in
court testifying against himself. In conclu
sion, we cite the following from the Wash
ington correspondence of the World, under
date of August 28 :
" General Meade, who is accompanied by
two members of his staff, called upon the
President to-day, and spent several hours at
the War Department and Army Headquar
ters. He speaks in the most cheerful man
ner of the condition of the South and the
general good conduct of the people. He rt•
marked to a friend to-day: 'I am sure they
mean to do right.' "

lowing table of the "ordinary expenses" of
the 'Federal Government, which includes ev
erything but debt and loans, as officially is--
sued at Washington, under the highest Re
publican authority. We respectfully com
mend it to - the Radical newspapers of this
city, which have endorsed Mr. Ed. Atkinson's
profound financial discoveries:
