The Secretary of the Treasury gives notice
that subscriptions will be received for Coupon
Treasury Notes, payable from Aug. 15th. 1864,
with semi-annual interest at the rate of seven
and three-tenths per cent, per annum, —prin-
cipal and interest both to be paid in lawful
These notes will be convertible at the option
of the holder at maturity, into six per cent,
gold bearing bonds, payable not less than five
nor more than twenty years from their date,
as the Government may elect. They will be
issued in denominations of SSO, SIOO, SSOO,
SI.OOO and $5,000, and all subscriptions must
be for fifty dollars or souio multiple of fifty
The notes will be transmitted to the owners
free of transportation charges as soon after
the receipt of the original Certificates of De
posit as they can bo prepared.
As the notes draw interest from August 15,
persons making deposits subsequent to that i
dale must pay the interest accrued from date
of note to date of deposit.
Parties depositing twenty-five thousand
dollars and upwards for these notes at any one
time will be allowed a commission of one-1
quarter of one per cent., which will be paid I
by the Treasury Department upon the receipt;
of the bill for the amount, certified to by the |
officer with whom the deposit was mauc. No
deductions for commtssions must be made
from the deposits.
SPECIAL ADVANTAGES of this LOAN.
It is a National Savings Lank, offering a
higher rate of iuterest than any other, and j
llf best security. Any savings bank which :
pays its depositors in U. S. Notes, considers
that it is paying in the best circulating me
dium of the country, and it cannot pay in any- j
thing better, for its own nsset3 are either in
government-securities or in notes or bonds
payable in government paper.
"it is equally convenient as a temporary or
permanent investment. Hie notes can al-1
■ways be sold for within a fraction of their
face and accumulated interest, and are the,
best security with banks as collattcrals lor j
•Convertible into a Six per cent. 5-20 Gold Bond.
In addition to the very liberal interest on
the notes for three years, this privilege of
conversion is now worth about three per cent,
for the current rate for 5-20 Bonds is not less
than nine per cent, premium , and before the war
•the premium on six per cent. U. S. stocks was
over twtnty per cent. It will be seen that
the actual profit on this loan, at the present :
market rate, is not less than ten per cent, per :
n tin urn.
Its Exemption from State or Municipal Taxation. ,
But aside from all the advantages we have j
■enumerated, a special Act of Congress *x
etnpls all bonds and Treasury notes from local
taxation. Gn the average, this exemption is !
worth about two percent, per annum, accord- i
ing to the rate of taxation in various parts of.
It is believed that no securities offer so great j
inducements to lenders as those issued by the
government. In all other forms of indebted
ness, the faith or ability of private parties, or
stock companies, or separate communities,
■only, is pledged for payment, while the whole
property of the country is held to secure the
discharge of all the obligations of the United ■
While the government offers the most liberal
terms for its loans, it believes that the very
strongest appeal will be to the loyaUy and
patriotism of the people.
Duplicate certificates will be issued for all j
deposits. The party depositing must endorse i
upon the original certificate the denomination
of notes required, and whether they are to be
issued in blank or payable to order. V hen
so endorsed it mnst be left with the officer re
ceiving the deposit, to be forwarded to the

We call the attention of all having relations

LAND'S German Bitters" will cure nine tenths
of the diseases induced by exposures and
privations incident to camp life. In the lists,

a very large proportion are suffering from de

Diseases resulting from disorders of the diges

no hesitation in stating that, if these Bitters
were freely used among our soldiers, hun

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 23, 1863.
MESSRS. JONLS EVANS. — Well, gentlemen,
your Iloofland German Bitters has saved my
lifc. There is no mistake in this. It is
vouched for by numbers of my comrades,
some of whose names are appended, and who
were fully conizant of all the circumstances
of my case. I am, and have been for the last
four years, a member of Sherman's celebrated
battery, and under the immediate com
mand of Capt. R. B. Ayres. Through the
exposure attendant upon my arduous duties,
I was attacked in November last with inflam
ation of the lungs, and was for seventy-two
days in the hospital. This was followed by
great debility, heightened by an attack of
dysentery. I was then removed from the
White House, and sent to this city on board
the Steamer "State of .Maine," from which I
landed on the 28th of June. Since that time
I have been about as low as anyone could be
and still retain a spark of vitality. For a
week or more I was scarcely able to swallow
anything, and if I did force a morsel dowu, it
was immediately thrown up again.
1 could not even keep a glass of water on
my stomach. Lite could not last under such
circumstances ; and, accordingly the physi
cians who had been working faithfully, tho'
unsuccessfully, to rescue me from the" 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 disposi
tion of my limited funds as best suited me.
An acquaintance who'visited me at the hos
pital, Mr. Frederick Steinbron, of Sixth below-
Arch Street, advised me, as a forlorn hope,
to try your Bitters, and kindly procured a
bottle. From the time I commenced taking
them the gloomy shadow of death receded,
and I am now, thank God for it, getting bet
ter. 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
certainty of life which has taken the place of
vague fears—to your Bitters will I owe the
glorious privilege of again clasping to my
bosom those who are dearest to me in life.
Very truly yours, ISAAC MALONE.
We fully concur in the truth of the above
statement, as we had despaired of seeing our
comrade, Mr. Malone, restored to health.
