110 4 11VLe1N.1143
Prepared by
Philadelphia, 'Pa
Twenty-two years since theywere first intro
duced into this country from Germany, during
which thno they have undoubtedly perforated
more cures, and benetitted suffering humanity
to a greater extent; than any other remedies
known to the public.
Thee remedies will effectually cure Liver Com
plaint, Jaundice, Dyspepsia, Chronic
or Nervous Debility , Tv Chronic Diarrhma,
Diseases of the Kid- r neys and all diseas
es arising froze a dls- - orate red! Liver,
Stomach, or Intestines..
Resulting from an cause whatever; Prostra
tion of the System, Induced by Severe
Labor, Hardships Exposure,
Fevers, Etc..
There is no medicine extant equal to these
remedies in such cases. A tone and vigor is im therwhole system, the appetite is
str ngthened, food is enjoyed, the stomach tli
ges promptly, the blood ht purified, the com
plex. Miles 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 ills, will find in the use of this
nrrrEtts, or the TONIC; an elixir that will in
stil new life Into their veins, restore inn meas
ure the energy and ardor of morn youtliful days,
build up their shrunken forms and give health
and happiness to their renutining years.
It Iva well established find that fully one-half
of the female portion of our pc qnliattoti
aro seldom-In the en- ir -joyntent of go o
health •, or, to use Li their own, expres
sion, ''neyer feel ' well." They are
devoid of all energy, extrentery nervous,
and have no appetite.
To thls'elass of perKops the 1111TEIM, or the
TONIC, Is espeetnlly recotnlnt:nded.
Weak and delicate children are tuade strong
by the use of tither 'of these remedies. They
will cure every case of,MARASMUS, without
fall. Thousands or certificates have nectunu ha
ted in the hands of the propriCtor,, 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.

I visited St. Louis lately,"and on my way
West, after changing cars at• Terre haute,
Indiana, a mild, benevolent looking gentle
man, of about forty-five or may be fifty, cattle
in at one of the way stations and sat
beside me. We talked - together pleasantly
oti various'subjects for an hour, perhaps, and
I found him exceeding: interesting_ When
ho learned that I CMS from Washington, he
immediately begun In ask questions about
various public men, and about Congress
ional of ; and I saw very shortly
that "I was conversing with a who
was perfectly familiar with the ins
anti outs of political life at' the Capital even
.to Um ways and manners and customs of
,procedure of Senators and Representatives
in the chambers of the -National Legislature.
Presently two men halted near us -ter a sin
gle, moment, and one said to the other :
"Harris, if you'll do that for me,yllnever
'forget you, my boyP
My new comrade's eyed lightened pleasant
ly. The words had touched upon a happy
memory, I thought. Then lace settled
into thoughtfulness—almost into gloom. He
finned to me and said :-
" Let me tell you a story—let me give you
a secret chanter of my life—a chapter that
has never been referred to since its events
transpired. Listen patiently, and promise
`that you will not interrupt me."
' I said I would not, and he related the I.'o
- strange adventure, speaking some
times with, melancholy, but always with feel
ing and earnestness : -
On the 10th of December, 1853, I shirted
tront St. Louis in the eveninglyound train for
Chicago. There were only twenty-four pas=
sengers, all told. There were no ladies, and
,no children. We were in excellent spirits,
pleasant acquaintances were soon formed.
The Journey bade fair to be a happy one,and
no individual in the party, t think, had even
the vaguest presentiment of the horrors we
,were soon to undergo.
At. 11 p. tn. it began to snow hard. Shortly
after leaving the small village of Weldon, we
entered upon that tremendous prairie that.
stretches. its leagues on leagues of houseles.s
dreariness far away toward the Jubilee Set
tlements. The wind, unobstructed by trees
or hills, or even vagrant rocks: whialett
timely,. tierces the' level desert, driving the
ftlline enow before it like spray from the crest
ed waves of a , stormy sea I'lni.snow was
deepening fast, and we knew by the diminish
ed, speed of-the train,lliat the engine was
plowing through it-with steadily intreasing
difficulty. Indeed it almost' came to a dead
halt sometimes in the midst of great drifts
that plied themselves like collosal- graves
stress the track.' Conversation begun_ to
flag. Cheerfulness gave place to grave con
cern. The , possibility, of being imprisoned
in Me snow, on the bleak prairie, fitly miles
from anii house, presented itself to every
mind, and extended its depressing influence
over every spirit.
. At two eclair - in the morning I was
aroused out of an 'easy slumber by the ceas
ing of all motion about me. The appalling
truth'ilashed upon me Instantly—;-we were
captives bra snowdrift I "All hands to the
rescue.',' , Every Man sprang ta.obey. Out
into the,wilitnight, the pitchy darkness, tins
billowing 'sinew,' the driving storm, every
soul leaped; with the 'conseiottSness that
Moment lost now might bring destruction to
us all. Shovels, hands; boards—anything,
everything, that could displace snow—was
brou,ght into 'natant reqnisition. It' was a
w lent plettire, that 'entail .comps ny of frantic
men fighting the banking snows, hall in the
blackest shadow and" half in the angry light
of the locomotive's reflector.
One short hour sufficed to prove the utter
uselessness of our efforts. The storm. barri
caded the track with a dozen drifts while we
,dugpne away. And wtmo than this, it was
discovered that the last..grand charge the en
gibe had made upon the enemy had broken
, the fore and aftershill of the driving wheel!
With a free track before .us we should have
still been. helplesa. We entered the car
Wearied with labor, and very sorrowful. We
gathered about the Stoves, and gravely can
•vassed our situation. We had no provisions
whatever-T-1n this lay our chief distress. We
teould not.freeze, for there ,waea good supply
of wood in the tender., 'rids was our only
conifort. The discussion ended at last in ac
cepting the &gleaning decision of the con
' (Meter, via : that it would be death for any
nian to attempt to trarel fifty miles on foot
through snow like that. We could not send
for help, and if we could, it ccinlil 'not come.
'We must submit and await, as patiently as
we might succor or starvation!' I think - the
stouOst heart there felt a momentary chill
these words were uttered.
Nis itliiu an' hour conversation Aubsitled• to
a low murthur here and' there about the car,
caught fitfully between the rising and falling
bf the-blast;- the lamps ,grew dim; and the
majority "of the, cast-sways settled them
selves among the.flickering shadows to think
forget the present if they could—to sleep
if they might. -
The eternal night=it seemed eternal to us
—wore its lagging hours away at last, , and
the cold gray dawn broke in the East. As
the light grew stronger the passengers began
to stir end give signs of lifeccine alter 'the
I other, and each in turn puttlied his slouched
hat up from his forehead, stretched his stiffen
ed limbs, and glanced' out at the windows
'upon the cheerless prospect. It was cheer;
less indeedlltrita living thing visible any
where,'not a human habitation; nothing but
a vast white desert; uplifted sheets orsnow
drifting hither and thither before the wind—
a world of eddying flakes shutting out the
firmament above
All day we moped about the ears, saying
much. Another lingeting,
dreary night—arid hunger. •
Another 'dawning—another day of si
lence, sadness; *siting, hunger, hopeless
watching fur succor that could not come. A
night of restless slumber, tilled with dreams
of feasting—wakings, distressed with the
guawings of hunger.
The fourth came and went-,and the fifth
live 'days of dreadful imprisonment! A
savage hunger looked. out at every eye.
There was in it a sign Of awful import—the
firieshadoiving of tt something that w ss_vazue
iy sh a ping w e ir into every heart—a some
tiling which no tongue dared yet to frame
into words.
• The sixth day passed-Lthe seventh dawn
ed upon as gaunt, and hagpril,nnti hoPeleas a
company of men as ever stood in the shadow
of death. It mat, out now ! That thing
which had been growing u`> in ever heart was
ready to leap from every lip at last !; Nature
had been taxed to the utmost—she must
yield ! Richard IL Gaston; of Minnesota,
tall, cadaverous. and pale, rose up. • All pre
pared—every emotion, every semblance .of
excitement was smothered—only a calm,
thoughtful seriousness appeared in the eyes
that were lately so wild. -
"Gentlemen, it cannot be delayed longer!
The time is at hand! We must, determine
which or us shall die to flu:ash food for the
rest !"
Mr. John J. Williams, of Illinois, rose and
said: " Gentlemen, I nominate the Rev.
Jantes Sawyer, of , Tennessee:
Mr. William B. :Vilnius, of Indinna.
nominate Mr. Daniel Slote. of N.,Y."
_ Mr. Charles J.,Langdon—" I nominate Mr.
Samnel A. Bowen, of St. Louis."
Mr. Slote—" Gentlemen, I desire to decline
in favor of, Mr. John A. Van Nastrand, Jr.,
of New Jersey."
31j. Gaston—" If there be no objection,
the pendeman's desire will be acceded to."
, Mr. Van Nastrand objecting, the resigna
tion Of Mr. Slote was rejected. The mng
naiads of Messrs. Sawyer and Bowen were
also offered, and refused on the same
- Bascom, - of Ohio—" L move that
the nominations, now close, and that - the
house proceed to. election by ballot."
Mr. Sawyer—" Gentlemen, I protest ear
nestly' 'against these proceedings. They are,
in every way, Irregular and unbecoming. • I
must beg -to move- that they be dropped at
once, and that we elect a chairman of the
meeting and proper officers to assist him,
and then we can go on with the business lie- .
fore us understandingly.' _
Mr. Belknap, of Ohio—" Gentlemen, I oh •
ject. This is no time to stand upon forms
and ceremonious observances. . For-, more
than seven - days we have been without food.
Every moment we lose in idle discussion in
creases our distress. J. am satisfied ,with the
nominations that have been made—every
gentleman present is, I believe—and - I, for
one, do not see why we should not proceed
at once to elect one or more of them. ' I wish
to infer a resolution—"
Mr. Gas/un—" It would be objected to, and
have to lie over one day under the ruleS,
thus bringing about the very delay you wish to
avoid. The gentleman from, New Jersey—"
Mr. Van Nastrand—" Gentleman, I am a
stranger among you • I have not soughts the
distinction that has been conferred upon me,
and I feel a delicaei." . .
Mr. Morgan, •of Alabama—'

The motion war carried, and further-de
Irate shut off of course. The motion to elect
officers was passed, and under it Mr. Ga-ston
was chosed. Chairman, Mr. Blake, Secretary,
Messrs. Holcomb, Dyer and Baldwin a com
mittee on nominations, and Mr. R. M. How
land, Surveyor, to assist the committee in.
making selections. '
A recess of half an hour was then taken
and sonic. little caucusing followed. At the
sound of the gavel the meeting re-assembled.
and the committee reported fu favor -of
Messrs. George Ferguson of Kentucky, Lu
cien Hermann, of Louisiana, and W. Messick,
of Colorado, as candidates. The report was,;, ,
accepted. '
Mr. Rogers
.of Missourl---t`llr., President.
The report being properly before the house
now, I move to amend it by substituting for
the name of Mr. Herrman that of Mr. Lucius
Harris,-4 St. Lords, who Is-Well and honor-
ably known. to us all. Ido not wish to be
understood as eastingihe least reflection uri
on the high character and standing of the

more flesh during the week ire lure laid

Mr. Halliday, of Virginia—" I mere to
further amend the report by substituting - Mr.
Harvey Davis, or Oregon, for Mr. Messick.
It may he urged by gentlemen that the hard
ships and- privations of a frontier life have
rendered Mr. Davis tough; but, gentlemen,
is this a time to c ivil at toughness ? Is this

The amendment was
_put to Vote, after a
fiery debate, and lost. Mr. Harris was sub
stituted on the first amendment. TM:ballot
ing then began. rive balhns were held with
out a choice. Orr the sixth, Harris, was
elected; all voting for him but himself. it
was then moved that his election should be
ratified by acclamation, which was lost, in
consequence of his again voting against
ulway moved that the house nlw
take up the remaining candidates, and go in
to election for breakfast This was carried.
On the first ballot there was a tie, half the
members favoring one immlidate on account
of 'his youth, and half favoring the other on
account of his superior size. The President
gave the casting vote Tor the latter, kr: 31c-s
-tuck. This decision created considerable Id is
sat isfaction among the friends of Mr. Fergu
son, the defeated candidate. and there was
-some talk of demanding a new ballot; but
in the midst - of it a -motion to adjourn was
carried, and the meeting broke up at once.
The preparation for supper diverted the at
tention of the Ferguson Mellon from the dis
cussion of their gnevanees for a long time,
and then, when thep,would have taken it up
again, the happy hnnouncement that. Mr.
Harris was ready, drove all thought of it to
the winds. '
We improvised tables by propping up the
backs of our seats, and sat down with hearts,
full of gratitude to the finest supper that had
blessed our vision - for seven torturing days.
How changed we were from what we had
been a few short hours pefore ! IlopeleSs,
sad-eyed, mis.n . y, hunger, fevoish :anxiety,

A PI filY SER - 1101 TO 'YOUNG 31F.N.--You
are the architects of your own fortunes.
Rely upon your own strength- of body and
soul. Take for your -motto, self-reliance,
honesty and industry; for your star, faith,
perseverance and pluck, and . inscribe on your
banner, "Bk just, and, fear not." Don't take
too much advice; keep at the helm and steer
your own ship. StAke out. Think well of
yourselves. Fire above the mark you in-,
tend to hit. Assume
,vour position.. Don't
practice excessive humility ; you can't get
above your level—water don't ran up hill—
put potatoes in a cart,civer a rough road, and
the small potatoes" wilt go to the bottom.
Energy, invincible determination, with a
right motile, are the -levehs that rule the
world. The great art of commanding is to
take a fair share of the work. Civility costs
nothing and buys everything. Don't drink,
don't smoke; don't sweat: don't gamble.
don't lie ; don't steal don't deceive ; don't
tattle. Be polite,. ' be .generous; be -kind.
Study hard ; play hard. Be in earnest. Be
s elf reliant. Read good bioks. Lave your
il2llow-man as well as your God; love your
country and obev-the law's; love truth: love
virtue. Always do what your conscience
tells you to be a duty, and leave the c.mse
quenees with God.—sv. John Todd.

breatlfed fervently forth : "Om; Father who

A-mother: in deep agony of grief, gazed
on her child, sleeping her long last sleep, a
smile wreathing her soft lips, and white
