The Gates of Zion.
"The Lord loveth the gates of Zion more than all
the dwellings or Jacob."
The earth is the Lord's, and its fulness ;
ne rules in the kingdoms of men ;
Alike on the good and the evil,
He sendeth his sunshine and rain.
The Lord is a glorious Sovereign,
He rules in the armies above ;
The righteous rejoice in his sceptre,
And praise his invincible love.
Yet eaith he, " The kingdom and nation
That will not serve Zion, shall cease;"
Yea! they shall be utterly wasted,
But Zion shall surely increase.
To her shall the Gentiles be gathered—
To Zion, the isles of the sea:
Shall bring in their tribute of, glory,
And bend at her altars the knee.
The Church of the blessed Redeemer,
Engraved on the palms of his hands,
For ages oppressed and afflicted,
Shall yet be the joy of all lands.
Then tremble, ye nations and kingdoms,
That lift over Zion the rod ;
For he, who bath chosen, still loves her—
Her friend and Redeemer is God.
The pomp and the pride of oppresenrs
Who wilt not to Zion be just,
The Lord, in his fierceness of anger,
Shalt certainly trample to dust.
For the Presbyterian Banner end Advocate.
MR. EDITOR :—Did you ever hear of the
city of Zanesville, on the Eastern bank of
the- river Muskingum, about three score
miles from its mouth ? It is a place of
some note and age, and ranks high as a
manufacturing town among the business
men of our State. It is surrounded by one
of the finest agricultural regions in the
Union. Its coal, water, stone, and railroad
privileges, are too exten'sive to admit of de
scription or limitation. Its health is prover
bial. People grow old here, it is said, but.
they seldom die.
The only thing that cramps and cripples
the outward prosperity of this city at pres
ent, is the monopoly of money in the hands
of a few, who-also own much of the proper
ty, and will neither improve it themselves,
nor sell it to others who would improve it !
Hence, some whole streets look quite anti
quated and not only evince the dilapida
tions of time, but a want of good taste and
The fact is, there is not enough of the
Yankee, and rather too much of the Irish
element in the population of this place. Erin
is good, but he is still better when he has
Jonathan by his side. The best of flour
will not make good bread alone. It must
hate a portion of yeast to raise it. Irish
-movements are rather dull without a little
of the Yankee spirit; and Yankee bustle is
rather fomentive without a good deal of the
Irish steadfastness to check it. If the pop
ulation of Northern and Southern Ohio
could be duly mixed for a generation or two,
a marked benefit would doubtless result.
Zanesville is a dirty, dingy, smoky city,
of the Pittsburgh type. We speak with
respect, lilr. Editor. Presbyterianism has
long had a footing in this place, and it still
manifests some life and vigor. The founda
tions of our Church were laid here by the
Rev. James Culbertson, who, a few years
since, entered into his rest. lie was suc
ceeded by Rev. S. Brown, who did much
good in Zanesville, by his faithful and fear
less denunciations of sin from the pulpit.
This rendering him unacceptable to some,
he left, and was succeeded by Rev. M. A.
Hoge. His ministrations were blessed, and
soon a colony from the First church asked
Presbytery to organize them into a Second
church. Their petition was granted, and
the colony went out and took the popular
pastor with them, leaving the First church
vacant. Soon an invitation was extended
to Mr. J. M. Platt, a licentiate of the Pres
bytery of New York, to visit them. He
came, preached, was liked, ordained and in
stalled, and is still the faithful and much
loved pastor of this church. • In the mean
time, the enterprise under Mr. Hoge con
tinued to prosper. They met for worship
for some time in Odd Fellows' Hall; but at
length arose and built one of the most
beautiful, convenient, and comfortable houses
of worship that I have ever seen in the
West. I need not describe it. I may
merely say, it is a model of its kind in plan,
style, finish, and furnish, and stands as a
monument of the refined taste and gener
ous liberality of all connected with it.
In this edifice, the Synod of Ohio con
vened, on the evening of October 16th, and
was opened with a sermon from the Rev.
J. D. Smith, the Moderator, from John
xvii : 21, .in which the nature and benefits
of Church unity were shown, in an eloquent
and convincing manner. s this sermon,
with others, is to be published in pamphlet
form for general circulation, I hope it will
be extensively read.
Synod was not full. Why so many cler
ical brethren were absent, is unknown to me.
There was, however, an unusual number of
lay delegates present; and these, generally,
such a fine looking, intelligent set of men,
that to the eye of a stranger, the whole as
sembly might have been taken-for a congre
gation of clergymen, with the usual Eastern
quantum of D. D.'s among them. A
marked feature of this ecclesiastical body is
its many young men. There 'are, indeed,
a few fathers—blessed fathers—among us,
but a large majority of the members are in
the prime of life,,
, without gray beads, al
though an unusual number are bald. But
I suppose this arises rather from a physiolog
ical, than a theological cause.
This session of Synod was rendered the
more interesting from the presence of so
many corresponding members from other
Synods of our Church. Among these we
might name Rev Dr. Mt:Kinney, of Pitts
burgh; Rev. Dr. Happersett, of Philadel
phia; Rev. Mr. Coe, of • St. Louis; and
Rev. Dr. Wilson, of South Carolina, (New
York.) Dr. .McKinney addressed the
Synod twice; once on the subject of the
Western Theological Seminary, and again
in behalf of the Board of Education. Dr.
Happersett was. beard on the subject of
Missions ; Mr. Coe on Church Extension ;
and Dr. Wilson on Foreign Missions. All
these addresses were earneatand wanly; and
from the marked attention they elicited on
the part of the Synod, the impressions they
made on the minds of all who heard them
must have been salutary. Such are the
facilities for travel, that our Synods begin to
look like Assemblies, from the presence of
so many strangers from all parts of the
Union. The time has come, when many
ride to and fro; and no doubt knowledge is
on the increase.
But the all-absorbing matter before this
Synod was the establishment of a Univer
sity, in connexion with the Synod of Cin-
cinnati. This subject has been agitated by
these bodies for the last two or three years.
I think it is felt generally to be a matter of
much moment; and it is truly wonderful
that such aged fathers as Dr. Hone, and
others, should manifest so much zeal on the
subject of a College, if they do not see that
such an Institution is really needed by our
branch of the Church in this State; and
this also shows that they have Zion's future
welfare deeply at heart, when standing upon
the brink of the grave, they so nobly and
eloquently urge the Church onward to duty
and conflict. I prey God that these vener
able fathers in Israel may live to see their
fondest anticipations more than realized in
the University about to be founded.
Three towns made proposals to the Synod
of Cincinnati, at its late meeting in Urbana,
in regard to this Institution. These were
Bellefontaine, West Liberty, and Chillicothe.
After hearing the representations of these
claims to great length, the Synod of Cin
cinnati decided, by a large majority, in favor
of West Liberty, and afterwards, on motion,
declared for this place unanimously.
The Synod then appointed the Rev. Mr.
Long, to carry up and defend this decision
before the Synod of Ohio. The three places
above named were each ably represented by
Revs. E. B. Raffensperger, H. R. Price, and
Dr. Stanton. The contest was long, and
ran high and wide. We had eloquent dis
quisitions and esquisitions on Geo g raphy,
Geology, Chemistry, Topography, Mechanics,
Political Economy, Hygiene,Architecture,
Hydrostatics, Railroads, Moraity, Mortality,
Money, Means, and Men. All this in order
was laid before Synod by these gentlemen,
who enforced their remarks by maps, draw
ings, pencilings, and other delineations of a
visible kind, so as to give Synod the best
information possible of each locality. The
advantages and disadvantages of large and
small towns, as College sites, was discussed
The delegates being heard, the discussion
was continued by-the members of Synod, in
a few five minutes speeches, when the vote
was taken. Chillicothe was chosen by a re
spectable majority. Thus the Synod of
Ohio disagreed with the Synod of Cincin
nati, as to the place of location. What now
is to be done? A. joint meeting of the two
Synods at Columbus is contemplated, when
a majority of the whole will fix the site for
the new College. I trust this will be as
plea - sant and profitable a meeting of those
two bodies as was had last year, by the
Synods Of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
To work, Olga, ye rich men of Chillicothe,
and see that ye do not suffer so insignificant
a "village" as West Liberty, to surpass
you in liberal proposals.
No judicial case of any kind came before
Synod, which I take as a token of good. Rev.
W. M. Robinson, of Newark, presided with
great dignity' and acceptance. The good
citizens of Zanesville exerted themselves to
entertain us well, and succeeded admirably.
May God bless them and us, and take us
all, after death, to our abode in those man
sions, where the entertainment will be per
fect, and the enjoyment fill, and no parting.

Go Back, Rose; You're Too Little to
BY ELLEN LOUISE CHANDLER
[This story is one of those rare pearls we
love to place before our readers. We can
not mention the publication in which it first
appeared, for some forgetful editor has failed
to make the credit due.—Home Maya-zinc.]
There were three of us—Kate, Annette,
and myself—and we were going into the old
wood to hunt for strawberries. Oh it was
such a delicious day in June. The birds
sang till the air was fairly vocal with their
melody, and all the green trees nodded their
heads in approbation. The very brook
seemed to have caught the general inspira
tion, and danced along through the mea
dows, as if keeping time to a quickstep of
Annette Summers and I had been invited
to spend the half-holiday with our school
mate Kate Harrington. Deacon Harrin ,
ton's old-fashioned, brown house fronted
toward the South. Behind it stretched a
broad, green meadow, and still farther back
was a densely wooded acclivity, famous for
flowers and berries in the geography of
every child in Ryefield. I used to love to
look at Deacon .Elarrington's old brown
house, even in those early days, when I had
not a single well-defined notion of artistic
taste . in my curly head. I know now that
it combined, to an eminent degree, the ele
ments of the picturesque. The low roof,
which sloped backward nearly to the ground,
was gray with moss. Ivy crept about the
windows, and over the rustic porch had
twined climbing roses, along with heavy
clusters of trumpet creeper.
There was a rude seat at the doorway,
made of the lithe boughs of the white birch,
twisted together .in fantastic fa:shion, and
here grand-mother Harrington was wont to
sit, with her gray woollen knitting work.
Oh I what a treat we used to think it to
spend a half-holiday with Kate Harrington.
"I wish I were you, Kate," exclaimed
Annette, after we had spent half the long
Summer afternoon chasing butterflies, and
arranging a vegetable baby-house with
hollyhocks, for our ladies' parasols, and tea
pots manufactured out of veritable poppy
pods. " I wish I were you, and then I
could be happy all day long, with nothing
to trouble me.'
" You could, could you?" and Kate's
cheeks flushed, as she put away from them
her heavy bands of black hair—" you think
so, and that's all you know about it. I have
a thousand things to vex me. There's Rose,
for instance. Mother expects me to be con
stantly taking care of her, and she's the
greatest little torment you ever saw. By
the way, girls, let's start after those straw
berries in the wood, now she's out of sight
for a minute, so she won't tease to go with
We were just about half-way across the
meadow, when we heard a sweet voice cry
" P'easa, sister Kate; Rose wants to go
I turned round, I remember, and thought
how beautiful was the little creature coming
toward us. She was very unlike her sister
Kate. Kate was a brunette, but the little
white•robed figure tripping across the mead
ow, had a pale, spiritual face, and long
curls of golden hair falling to her tiny waist.
There was a flush on her cheek, and a look
of eager, beseeching interest in her large,
blue eyes; and she stretched her dimpled
arms toward us, and kept crying in her ear
" P'ease, girls, wait for Rose."
A look of vexation crossed Kate's face
and she called out in a tone of extreme irri
" Go back, Rose; you're too little to come
Go back ! go back !"
Kate always bad a way of being minded,
THE Pfl ESBYTERIAN BA.I\ NER AND ADVOCATE.
and the little one put her fingers to her eyes,
and silently turned toward the house. We
hurried on in the direction of the wood,
without giving a single glance backward. I
think Kate's conscience reproached her for
her selfishness, and I know my own pleasure
was spoiled for the afternoon. We found
plenty of strawberries red and ripe, among
their bed of leaves. There were little blue
eyed blossoms, too, that kept reminding
me of Rosie, and I was not sorry when the
sunset shadows lengthened, and we turned
to go home.
We had gone down the hill out of the
wood, and crossed several rods of the mea
dow-land, when Kate said, in a hoarse whis
per : " See there, girls, what is that white
thing by the brook? 'Do you see it?"
We saw it, and hurried towardit. It was
Rose. At first we thought she was dead.
Scarcely seemed the faintest breath to steal
from her parted lips, and the pulsations of
her heart were so weak you could scarcely
feel them. She was in a kind of trance-
like sleep. It was some time before we
succeeded in waking her, and then her limbs
seemed chilled and stiffened by the subtle
dampness of the meadow-land atmosphere.
She could not stand. How many times that
afternoon the little darling had begged us
to " make a chair" for her, with our hands,
and we had answered that we couldn't stop.
We made one now. She twined her dim
pled anus about our necks, and held on very
tight, but she didn't speak, except once, and
then she only said, "Ain't I most big enough,
sister Rate ?"
Mrs. Harrington met us at the door with
a wild look of alarm. " Good heavens,
Kate !" she exclaimed; "what's the matter
with Rose ?" And taking her from our
arms, she discovered that her clothes were
almost saturated with moisture. "Kate,
child, why don't you speak? Has Rose
been in the water ?"
" No, ma'am ; but she went into the
meadow, and got to sleep, and we found her
there sleeping." *
Oh, there were anxious hearts in Deacon
Harrington's brown house that night. Very
tenderly was the suffering little Rose cradled
on her mother's breast, but not once did she
speak coherently. Her checks burned, and
her eyes sparkled with fever; her dimpled
arms were tossed above her head, and every
little while, between her moans, she would
stretch out her hands toward some imaginary
object, and say : " P'ease, sister Kate, isn't
Ruse most big enough?"
Three days passed—days of incessant
watching and weariness—and toward even
ing the little Rose , opened her blue eyes,
after a restless slumber. She seemed much
better, and the mother glanced hopefully up
to the kind physician bending over her.
" I cannot say she's better, madam. God
knows I_ wish I could ; but Rose must die
before midnight !" and the tears stood in
glittering drops on the good man's cheeks.
The mcther's great grief was not noisy.
She quietly lifted her darling from the bed,
and sat down with her in her arms. Kate
stood by, sobbing, as if already the brand of
Cain were upon her brow.
" P'ease, mamma," said the little one at
length—" am I big enough to go to hea-
" Yes, darling," was the tearful answer.
" Jesus loves little children."
"And, mamma, do you s'pose hell for
give me for sitting down in the meadows to
watch Katie, when you told me I mustn't
ever stay there ?"
"Yes, my pety the good Saviour will for
give you for anything, if you are only sorry;
but Rosie doesn't want to go to heaven, and
leave mother, does she ?"
"I heard sdmebody say I must go, when
I was asleep, mother ; a beautiful lady, with,
oh ! such white, shining wings, and she
stretched out her arms to take me, but I
didn't go. ' , woke up just to kiss you and
sister once more. ease kiss' me, Katie.
'lttle Rose won't never be naughty any more
up in heaven, and I'll grow big before
you come, Katy, so I can play with you up
There were tears, sighs, a funeral, and a
little coffin. The rosebud opened its petals
on the bosom of Jesus. The little earth
flower was "big enough for heaven :"
When, and How, to set out Trees.
1. We advise to set , out most kinds of
fruit-trees in the Fall, as soon as may be
after the leaves have dropped from them:
Peach, apricot and nectarine trees are trans
planted more safely in the Spring, as early
as the ground will admit of being worked.
2. Deciduous shade•trees and shrubs, that
is, those which shed their leaves in Autumn,
should he set as soon as the leaves fall.
The above two rules do not apply to very
cold latitudes, where the ground remains
deeply frozen for four or five months in the
year. In such localities, early Spring trans
planting is thought to be the safest.
3. Evergreen trees and shrubs are best
transplanted in May, June, August or Sep
tember, at the North—earlier at the South.
4. In taking up trees, great care should
be used to save unbroken as many as possi
ble of the very small roots and fibres, even
those so minute as to be scarcely seen with
out a magnifying glass. Upon the number
Of these, which are really the feeders of the
tree, will depend its future growth and
vigor. Never pull up a tree rudely, or cut
off its roots with a spade, except, perhaps,
some of its longer large rats. Leave the
tap-root moderately long. Before lifting a
tree, loosen the soil around it well, and then
take it up carefully. Proper care in this
particular will double the chance of its sur
viving, and render it ten-fold more valuable
5. While out of the ground, the roots
should, on no account, be exposed to the
sun or dry winds. If not set out imme
diately, let them be covered and kept damp
—not wet. Too much wet, warm packing,
is almost as dangerous as dryness.
6. Dig wide, deep holes, to be filled with
good surface.' soil. Here lies one of the
great secrets of successful fruit-growing.
No matter how poor the original soil, it is
always comparatively easy to dig out a large
hole, say two to two and one-half feet deep,
and five to eight feet in diameter, and fill it
in with good soil for the future bed of the
tree. The air from which they derive much
nourishment, is just as good over a barren
sandy field as over a fertile one, and we can
always get goo g d soil enough for the tree to
grow in, even if it has to be carted a•mile.
A tree set out in the best manner is capi
tal well invested. If a load of good soil to
fill in around the roots of each tree costs
even one dollar per tree, that dollar is well
invested—the tree will in a short time pay
back a large interest annually. The tree
poorly set in poor soil, may repay the first
cost and annual care. If supplied with
good soil, it will require no more after care
than in the other case, while it will give
two, three, four, five, perhaps ten times as
much fruit. We cannot urge this point too

A Clerical Anecdote.
Some thirty-five or forty years ago, a Mr.
Williams, a clergyman of the Old School,
somewhat eccentric, came to Salem, from
the country, to exchange desks with one of
his brethren in the ministry. During the
Sabbath-noon intermission, he said to his
daughter, " I am going to lie down; if St.
Paul comes himself, don't you disturb me."
Mr. Bentley, who preached in the East
church, who had been very intimate with
Mr. 'Williams, but had not seen him for
several years, hearing he was in town, hur
ried off after dinner to make his old friend
" Where is Brother Williams?" he in
quired as he met the daughter.
"Ile can't be disturbed, sir; not even if
St. Paul should call."
" I must see him !" was the impatient
rejoinder, in the inimitable manner peculiar
to Mr. Bentley.
Resistance to such a muse was out of the
The room of the sleeper was designated.
With no gentle voice, and a corresponding
shake, Mr. Williams was aroused. He was
delighted to see his old friend Bentley, re
iterating in his fervency his gratification.
" I think, Brother Williams," said Mr.
Bentley, "that you are a little inconsistent."
How so! how so! Brother Bentley ?"
"Didn't you tell your daughter you were
not to be disturbed, even if St. Paul called?
yet you appeared very glad to see me."
No, no, Brother Bentley, not inconsist
ent at all. I was—l am glad to see you.
The Apostle Paul ! why, I hope to spend a
blessed eternity with him; but you, Brother
Bentley, I never expect to see you again."
Anecdote of Dr. Humphrey.
When Dr. Humphrey was President of
Amherst College, he had occasion, on a
very cold day, to ride in the stage, which
then ran through Boston. A lady appeared'
and wished to ride. The inside of the stage
was full, and all know what a full stage 'is.
The driver inquired if any gentleman would
be so kind as to ride on the outside and give
his place to the lady. Dr. Humphrey was
the only man who heard, and though then
an old man, was the only one who volun
teered to give up his seat. The lady, on
special inquiry, found the kind gentleman's
name to be Dr. Heman Humphrey. But a
few years afterwards, a •member of the
"Committee to increase the College Library
Fund," chanced to meet this very lady, and
stated his case to her. " Sir," said the lady,
" I know nothing about Amherst College or
its Library, but I know its President is a
gentleman, a real gentleman, and here arc
a hundred dollars !" Such an incident oc
currier, in the life of such a man, is worth
a hook of morals and comments.
LIBERIA.-J. ?I. Richards a negro, who
emigrated from New York to Liberia, some
three years since, has written a letter to one
of the journals of that city, in which he
gives a most flattering account of the coun
try and his prospects. He has a farm of 412
acres, with 12,000 coffee trees set out. He
made 108,000 bricks last season and early in
the past Spring. He was about breaking in
eight pairs of additional oxen for hauling,
sugar. cane, logs etc., and was making ar
rangements to procure a sugar-mill, driven
by a steam engine of sufficient power to oper
ate at the same time a saw mill, grind corn,
hull rice, etc. He expects he will be able
to ship from 150 to 200 hogsheads of sugar
of his first grinding. He has from fifty to
sixty men and boys on the place, and a
school, in which all who are willing to attend
at night receive instruction gratuitous.

CURED, Without Pain or Surgical Operation.
The readers of the Banner and Alter cate will recollect I
published a notice last Winter, headed "The Last Call to
Stuttering and Stammering persons," in which lannosinced
was the only chance they would ever haviof getting cured,
and all who desired the cure should either send for it by
mail or call themselves before the 10th of March, aeon that
day I had made arrangements to resign my profession, and
retire from the practice. Since the 10th, I hare personally
consulted krty. and cent the cure by mail to sixty
In every instance perfect satisfaction has been
rendered. Ift justice to all who are so unfortunate as to
stutter or stammer yet. I have thought proper to give
another opportunity of being cured, and therefore would
respectfully request them to send me $2O, (which is less
than my usual fee,) and I will immediately send them my
cure, by so doing they save the expense of traveling. I
am a responsible man, and if my cure is not effectual 1 will
agree to refund the money. Recollect. this cure never fails.
Address Dr. WYCKOFF, Box 746, Pittsburgh Post office,
There has been a floating population of imposters travel
ing the country, professing to cure impediments of speech
by my system : and many have had the audacity to advertise,
in my name, and give the names of men for reference whom
they never knew or saw. When persons who stammer
called, those men would represent me, and in several. in
stances produce a certificate purporting to bo mine, vesting
in them full power and authority to practice as my Agents.
I have frequently warned the Public of these men, as they
are not in full possession of my system, and cannot cure.
Through untiring perseverance. I arrested two of them,
and others will sooner or later share the same fate. This
cure for Stuttering or Stammering is one of my own
discovery, for which I have a copy right, secured by law,
and have successfully practised the same for the term of
My references are of the highest order, each as the Medi
cal Paculty or New York, Philadelphia, and the University
of Virginia, all the Press of Pittsburgh, Washington,
Greensburg, and Uniontown, Pa., besides fifty thousand
persons in different parts of the country.
This cure for Stuttering and Stammering is performed in
less than one hour. There is no pain or surgical operation
The beauty of all this le, it will cure children of five, and
adults at the age of one hundred years. A person who is
cured by it, can never again stutter, even if they try. I of
fer to forfeit $lO,OOO if any person can ever afterwards Stut
ter, by application of the cure.
It was formerly customary to announce, that no pay
would be required unless a perfect care was 'performed.
That was done to show the people there would be no risk in
giving me a trial. But now, inasmuch as the leading citi
zens of Pittsburgh, know my cure never fails, it would be
superfluous to make another such announcement.

gic Affections, it Las in numerous instances proved highly
beneficial, and in others effected a decided cure.
Nature finds no new enemy to combat with this delightful
tonic in the system. Ita effects are almost magical, yet the
cure permanent. It communicates no violent shock to the
system, but by arousing its vita/ energy to normal action,
enables it to throw off the cause, and thus thoroughly erad
icates the disease.
When its medicinal virtues are so universally acknowledg
ed, and particularly here, where it has become so popular a
family medicine, that it is sold by many of the grocers. as
well as all the druggists, it would seem needhas to oiler
further evidence; yet as there are, doubtless, some who have
tried many advertised remedies. and still suffer from Dys
pepsia in one or more of its dreadful forms, we subjoin the
following certificates, the authenticity of which cannot be
doubted, coming, as they do, from persons so well known.
WHAT IT IS DOING FOR THE lGeff
Wm. &badman, Esq., the well known lithographer, says
"1 base frequently used Rcerhave'a Holland Hitters, and bud
it invariably relieves indigestion and debility."
Rev. Samuel Babcock says: "I found special relief from
its use for a severe headache, with which I had long suf.
J. W. Woodweil. Esq., says : " I have need Ecerh eve's 110 l
land Bitters myself, and recommended it to others, knowing
it to be just what it is represented."
Ald. :Jonathan Neely, of Lower St. Clair, says: "I have
derived great benefit from its use, for weakness of the stom
ach and indigestion."
James ill. Murphy says: "After several physicians bad
failed, Beerhaves Rolland Bitters removed the pain from my
heart and side. arising from indigestion."
The editor of the Kittanning Fret Press save: "After one
of the beet physicians in this piton had failed, Boerhave's
Holland Bitters cured me cf the worst form oftlyepepsia."
Francis Felix, only manufacturer of the " original Extract
of Coffee," says : "I know that your Rolland Bitters is one
of the best medicines in the world, for a disordered stomach
Mr: Ludwig, editor of the Fackel, Baltimore, pronounces i r
a medicine deserving the confidence of the public.
Dr. Eherhart, the lending German physician of Pennsyl
vania, has prescribed it frequently during the last three
years, with marked success, 9n debilitated states of the di
geatire organs, or of the system `generally.
The manager of Baliou's Vinegar Factory says: used it
myself, and was therefore induced to try its effects upon my
wife, (troubled with the great debility common to all or
consumptive habit,) and really it is doing her more good than
anything she has ever taken."
NOTlCEl—Whoever expects-to Bud in this a beverage rr!ii
be disappointed; but to the sick, weak, and low spirited.
will prove a grateful aromatic cordial, possessed of singular
CAUTI.J24!— The great popularity of this delightful Aroma
has induced ninny imitations, which the public should
against pnrchasing. Be not persuaded to buy any thing el,.
until you have given Bcerhure's Rolland Bitters a lair trial.
