, The stomach, from a variety of muscat, such
as Indigestion, Dys- peria, Nervous
etc., is very
to have its func
tions deranged. The Liver,sympathizing
as closely as It does .with the Stomach,
then becomes affected, the result of %Odell is
that the pat lent suffers from several or more of
the following diseases:
Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles, Full
nat:s of Blood to the Head Acidity of the Stom
ach, Nausea; Heartburn, D'sgust for Food,Foll

submit these well-known remedies—
DR. C. M. JACKSON,
Twenty-two years since they were first Intro
due&l into this country from Germany, during
which time they have undoubtedly performed
more cures, and benctltted suffering humanity
to a greater extent, than any other remedies
known to the public.
These remedies will effectually cure Liver Com
plaint, Jaundice, Dyspepsia, Citron le
or Nervous 10 Chronic Dlarzhcea,
Diseases of the - neys andall diseas
es arising from a dis- ordered Liver,
Stomach, or Intestines. ' •
Restntlng trtan any catyse whatever; ?rostra-
lion or the Bystem, Induced by Severe
Labor, Hardahlixt, 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 promtly, the blood la punned, the com-..
plexion becomes sound and healthy, the yellow
tinge is - eradicated from the eyes, a bloom' s
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
BITTERS, or the TONIC, an elixir that will in
stil new Ltfeinto their veins, restore In a meas
ure the energy and ardor of more youthful 4= 5 ,
build up their shrunken forms and give health
and happiness to their remaining years.
It Is a well established fact that. fully one-halt
of the female portion of our population
are seldom In the en-T joy ment of good
health; or, to use jj their own expres
sion, "never te e t well." They are lan
guid, devoid of all enemy, extremely nervous,
and have no appetite. -
To this class of persons the BITTERS, 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 MARABBIUS, without
fall. Thousands of certificates have accumula
ted in the bands 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.

DR. JACNSon—Dear Sir:—l have frequently
been requested to connect my name with rec
ommendations of different kinds of medicines.,
but regarding the practice as nut of my appro
priate sphere, I have to all cases declined; but
with a clear proof in varioustances,
and particularly in N my own family, of
the usefulness of 'Dr. Hoofland's German
Bitters, I depart for once from my usual
course to express my full conviction that for
General Debility of the System, and especially
for Liver Complaint, it is a safe and valuable
preparation. In some easel it may fall; but,
usually, I doubt not, it will be very beneficial to
those who suffer from the above cause, -•

hers of Brigham's Harem--Life under
Polygamy Declared by Young to be "a
Wearisome - Barden."
[From the Boston Journal.]
In the Orient there Is one institution which
has long been established concubinage.
The modern Turk, tile Arab, Dindoo, Fee
glen, and King of Ashautee all follow the
footsteps.of their 'fathers. They keep concu
bines by the score. The harem never has
flourished under the Christian civilization
of Europe, but it has-. been translated from
the orient to Salt Lake. City by the prophet
and apostles of the church of the Latter-Day
Saints, and is thriving with great vigor. In
the city of the Sultan and everywhere else
in the East it is established in lust, but in the
saintly city of Utah it is held to lie ordained
of God through time and eternity.
THE APOETILES AND THEIR CONCUBINES.
The prophet, in imitation of the Lord
Jesus Christ, hai ordained, twelve apostles
to assist him in his ministry. .In this church
of the Latter• Day. Saints, he who will be
greatest in the kingdom of heaven is he who
has the, most concubines in this life. The
apostles, therefore, imitating their prophet,
add to their number of concubines as they
feel abje, that their glory may be great in the
eternaLworld. Do you ask whether the idea
uppermost in the ' , mind of the Oriental, the
gratification of passion,.may not also he an
inducement with an apostle to take a concu
bine--.a half dozen? Those sober-minded
men of Salt Lake will assure you that they
seek only to do the will of, God. Each
added concubine will be a jewel in the im
mortal crown, and over each new bora child
there' is joy in 4easen, for it is a soul released
from its prison house and started on its way
All of the Apostles are married, and all
have two or more concubines, in addition to
their one lawful wife. - They rank as follows :
Ist Apostle Orson Hyde has three -concu

THE PROPHET'S HAREM.
A. few steps up Main street from our ho
tel, a turn to the right and 'we see the pro
phet's harem. The grounds occupied by
Brigham are enclosedthy a high Wall; laid in
cemnet. An eagle with spreading wings,
clutching a bee-hive in his talons, is mounted
over the gateway—emblematic of flciglmin
and the church. The main entrance faces
South. The gro.unds are well laid out, and
there is an abundance of apples, pear and
peach trees. Grape vines climb the walls
and hang on trellises. At the South-west
corner of the grounds is the tithing office,
where a tenth part of all that is produced in
Life Mlritory passes into Brighton's hands.
use rear of the tithing office are extensive
sheds, where the saints find shelter while
paying their gibing. Here also are several
iglu)! buildings ,where Brigham's servants
live—thine employed about the premises. A
few s teps cut of the tithing office is the three
storied building, standing end to the road,
large enougliand long enough for a factory
boarding house. It has a steep shingled
roof, with ten gabled windows on ecCli side.
On the balcony over the door hi a crouching
lion. This is the harem. A. covered passage
leads from the ground floor to another build.
ing East in whichis the general business of
flee of Brigham Young, and from which tele
graph wires run to every hamlet in the ter
ritory. Another passage leads to the private
office of Brigham—back of which is his pri
vate bedroom, where - his concubines wait
upon him—Amelia to-day—Emeline to-mor
row, Lucy the slay after. Brigham's lawful
ly wedded wife seas Mary Ann Angel—a na
tive of New York—the mother of five chil
dren—Josepb,; or ".roe" as he is called at
Salt Lake, BiiglaaM John, Alice and
Luna. She ruarriedgbe prophet while he was
a young man, before be wag a prophet, and
with him accepted the revelations of Jirseph
Smith: She lives in a huge atone building
in the rear of the harem. Brigham does not
often visit her now:
BRIGIIAM'S CONCVM.TNES. •
'The number of concubines in the harem
is not known to the Gentile world. One re.
port makes the number -seventy, another
gives only 20. It is probable that the larger
number includes those who are sealed to
Brigham for eternity and not for time.
His first concubine is Lucy Decker. She
is the lawful wife of Isaac Seely, mother of
two children ; but Brigham could make her
a queen in heaven, and so, bidding hood-bye
to Isaac, she became first concubine, and has
added eighteen children to the prophet's
Her younger sister, Clara Decker, also as
pired to be a heavenly queen, and became
his second concubine, and is
_tue mother of
The third is Harriet Cook, mother of one
turbulent boy, who dOes pretty much as he
pleases, and so does the mother. When in her
tantrums she does not hesitate to send Brig:
ham to the realm of evil spirits.
Lucy Bigelow IS said to be one of the most
lady-like of all the eonenbines. Mrs. Waite,
'; wile of one of the United States Judges of
the Territory, who saw all the ladies of the
• harem, describes her of middling stature.
dark brown hair, blue eyes, aquiline nose,
and a pretty month.' She is pleasant and af
Miss Twiss has sandy hair, round features,
blue eyes, low forehead, freckled face, but as
she has'no children, is not of much account
In the eyes of the prophet. She looks after
his clothes; sews buttons on his shirts, and
acts the part of a housewife.
Martha Bowker is another of the same
sort, quiet, neat in dress, motherless, and
therefore of little account.
Harriet Barney, like Lucy Decker, left her
husband and three children to become a con
cubine that she might have exaltation in
Heaven, bot has not been honored in the
harem, not having added any children to the
the household. -
Eliza Burgess is the only English Woman
in the harem, small of stature, black eyes,
quick tempered, but mother of several chil
Ellen Rockwood. daughter of the jail
keeper, is another of the unfortunate women
—not having had children.
Mrs. Hampton, whose first -husband died
at Nauvoo, afterward married a man by the
name of Cole,who left her at Nauvoo and went
to California. Brigham, hearing of his de
parture, sent for his wife, who obeyed the
sunimmui and became a concubine, lived in
the harem eight years, then was cast out by
Brigham. She now lives in Ogden City with
her son, Nephi Hampton:
Mary Bigelow is another castaway. - She
lived in the harem s'everelyears, but Brigham
became tired of her and sent her away.
'Margaret Pierce is another who, not hav
ing added to the-glory of the prophet by be
ing a mother, is of little account, though still
in the harem. -
Prne, as described by Mrs. Waite,
is the "light of- the harem," -tall, graceful,
mild, violet eves, fair hair, inclined to curl.
She was a lively young lady and Brigham
fell indove with her. Her hither and mother
were opposed to polygamy, but Emeline had
ambitious projects, accepted his proposal,
and tecame the favorite of the !MOM The
favor shown her brought on a row. The
.other concubines carried Ibis jealousy to such
a pitch that the prophet kad a.private pas
sage constructed froth his bed-room to Eine
line's room, so that his visits to her and
to him could be made without obse'rvalion.
She has contribUted greatly to his glory in
the future world by preseuting him with
eight children in this,
The poetess of the church is Eliza Snow,
said to be quite intellectual. In one of the
poems published in Brigham's paper, the'
Deseret News, she thus exalts 'the Mormon

Mrs. Augustus Cobb was forlerly a Bos
tonian, became converted to Mormonism

Mrs. Smith, a devout Mormou, wished to be
sealed to Brigham for eternity, but the pro
phet did not care to make her a heavenly
queen, He sealed her to Joseph Smith for
and to himself for time.'
One "poor unfortunate," Clara Chase, be
came a maniac, and has gone to where the
wicked cease from troubling.
Amelia Folsom, a native of Portsmouth,
Y. H:, is the mistress of the harem. She en
tered it on the 29th day of dauuarY, 1863.
She is about 19, and the prophet G 3. She
has things pretty much her own way—pri
vate box at the theatre, carriage of her own,
silks, satins, a piano, parlor elegantly fur

him in his own coin. •
' Snell is an outline of this saintly house
hold—thirty women or more, and seventy or
eighty children. Unless Jammu nature is
vastly different in•Ctah from what it is in
other places, there must be ninny family jars.
The outward appearance-is of a pertreable
and orderly community, but if there is a
fraction of truth in coznuion report, it is one
of the saddest communititis in the world.
Brigham comprehends the fact that life' tin
der polygamy is a wearisome burden, and
has taken measures to amuse the members
of him claireb.
A UNIQUE WEDDING.-A Western ex
change tells us the story of a rather unique
w eghlinps thus :
"Mollie was not the only wicked person in
this city. There was a "Jim," an aboriginal
df Momence, of whom but little is known
here; but pnless nature lied jn Jim's face,
head and general make-up, he was worse,
wickeder and lower than Mollie. He made
the acquaintance of Mollie in jail, while

of whiskey from an Alden:Pan in Momence.

Or'not is not known. They begged to
be released' frqm jail, and Promised to marry
and emigrate to Cheyenne. The Common
Council ,voted Mollie a new dress, and the
happy couple sixty dollars - to pay their fare
on their matrimonial trip.
- They repaired to the office of the Police
Court. The police magistrate has.an origi
nal way of doing things. They sail they
wished to be married. The magistrate, with
"up)ifted bands, said:
"Jim, do yoy agree' to take Mollie, and
live with her, mad go to Cheyenne, with her,
And May with her regardless of law or conse

"Mollie, you do agree to take Jim, and live
