PHILADELPHIA, .AtlgUSt-5.3t1, 1662
Messrs. ,Jones 4. Eveuns.—Well, gentleman,
your Hood:M.l's German Bitters have saved my,
life: There is no mistake ih this. It is Vouch
ed for by numbers of my comrades; some of
whose names are appended, and who are fully
cognizant of all the circumstances of my case.
I am, and have been fur the lest four years,
a member of Sherman's celebrated battery,
and under the immediate• command of Cap
tain R. 13. Ayres. Through the exposure ut
ter dent upon my arduous duties, 1 was attack
ed in November last with inflarnation of the
lungs, and was for seventy-two days in the
1# ttal. , This was. fol lowed by great debility,
/Fried by an attack of dysentery'. I was
the 'removed from the White House, and
sent to this city on board the Steamer "State
of mainci ,, ,Jrorn which I landed on the 28th,
of - June:, Since thnt time I have been about
is IoW as any one could and still retain a
spark of vitality. For a week or more 1 was
scarcely able to swallow anything, and if 1 did
force' a morsel down, it was immediately
thrown up again. .
I could not even keep a glass of water on
.my Stomach. ,Life could not last under these
circumstances: and, accordingly, the phYsi
,biai49 who had been working faithfully, though
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 lira - lite - 1 funds as • best suited me.—
, Anacquamtunce who visited me at the hespi
tal,Mr. Frederick Steinbron, of Sixth. below
'Arch street, advised me, as a forlorn hope, to
try your'Bitters, end kindly procured a bottle.
From the time I coMmeneed taking them the
gloomy shadow of death receded, and I am
now, thank God for it, getting bolter.. 'rho'
I have • taken .but two bottles, I have gained
ten pounds, and I feel sanguine of beingper
?flitted to rejoin my wife and daughter, from
whom I have heard nothing for eighteen
months: for, gentlemen, I am a loyal Virgin
ian, 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 Sitters will I owe the glourious pri
yilege of again clasping to my bosom those
who are dearest to me in life.
Very truly yours, Isa tenni
We fully concur in the truth of the above
statement, as we had despaired of seeing our
comrade, Mr. Malone, restoredto health.

MARIETTA, PA., SA_TTIRDAY, .JULY
Many years.- ago, the young Baron
-Busfuz lived in an Old caitle:On the
Rhine. He loved the Lady Ravenell,
and paid his addresses to her; but was
rejected because she was Of the opinion
thatteloved his brave old blotid:tibund
Dander better than he loved herself,-
In fact. the lady Rayenell stated her
suspicions to the;baron,ithe eiftretltness
of which he made no attempt to dis
"Reasons there are, my lady," he
would say, "that Dunder should come
&start my , affections : for' he can hunt
better than you can ; he can run far
faster through the forest than . you car. ;
and I have known him longer than I
have known you."
As the. Lady Ravenell'declined coming
in competition with Dunder, the 'Baron
Buzfuz, as I have observed before, this
a rejected suitor.
. But please observe now how strange
a turn 'the tide of affairs took. As the
Lady Revenell was one afternoon riding
through the dense, dark forest; she was
wiiylaid and attacked by tWo armed
sassins iu masks. One of then:L:lad just
drawn glitterin,g,"ppignard, Which he
was about to plunge in the Lady Raven
ell's_breast, when Dander, who happened
to be roaming through the forest ord a
tour of pleasure and' •observation, sud
denly sprang npon the bloody assassin,
and struck MS" fangs into his face and
neck with such force as to compel a
speedy surrender. The accomplice, or
rather, as it turned out, the principal in
this niiirderons 'design, seafrig escape
by flight ; was also'overtaken and wound
ed by Dander ; and,. on the mask falling
from his lace, he was. found to loe a
wild, reckless young baron who had as
Tired,`without success,- to the iltady
Raveriell!s hand. After a while, * the
mellow horn of the Baron Buzfuz was
heard resounding through the forest,
when Dander gave a, long continued
dismal howl, which the baron evidently
understood, for in a short time"he-mede
his'aPpearince at' the spot, Iwheig . he
found the two disabled assassins stretch
ed upon the . ground and the Lady Retr
ench almost dead from fright.
Now, if I were really intending to tell
the sto i ry, it would be proper forme to
go on and state. how - that the Lady
Ratenell, considering, withinlerselfthat
Dander had saved her life, became -ex
ceedingly attached,to him, and in :pro
cess of time even consented to marry
his master. And they were married, the
Baron Buzfuz and the Lady Ravenell ;
and for nine long days the old castle,
was fairly_ alive with song and revelry.
Dander was also an invited guest, and,
,witnessed the whole ceremony from be
ginning, tQend, evincing, his satisfaction
by a prolonged smile which stretched'
his mouth:open 'from ear to ear.
And then I ought to relate, if I were
absolutely, undertaking to give the nar
rative, how that a very curious jealousy
arose in the fe'tnily—a very twisted,
complicated sort of an affair, as you
might term it. The baron was jealous
because he suspected that the baroness
loved Duader better than she did him ;
and the baroness was jealous' because
.sheyery clearly perceived that the bar
on retained his old preference for Dun
der.over herself. And so it came „to
pass that a .burning jealousy raged in
the heart of each—for although the
baron really did love Dander better than
he •did his wife, and the baronees on
her part loved Dander better than she
did the baron, yet they were each uneasy
because of the,rival quadruped. And
here notice, in passing, how glaring the
selfishness of mankind and womankind
appears in this. Each one was willing
to give the preference in love to Dan
der, bat at the same time reqUired that
the love of the other to himself or her
self should be supreme. Under such a
whimsical and anomalous condition of
affairs, it is certainly not to be wondered
at that the lives of the Baron Buzfuz
and his lady were involved in .gloom
Butthis, of course, could not last kir
ever, and each, without the knowledge

tial servant; named Griniswig, to, carry
Dunder to a distant pond and drown
him. And if I. were really engaged in
relating so trifling but veracious a story
as this, 1 should go on to inform you
that they each happened to hit on the
very same servant by whom to send
the dog, and the very' seine day, and the
very same hoar of•the day. •
Now; aftcr Grintswig had beep gong
With •Dunder '131:412w-lout er - five hours,
the baron and baroness began •to take
a new view of the matter , and each felt
guilty of a very cruel, disreput'aiile act.
- EacE one Of their', unknOwn tci'the other,
-ptisied a most miserable niglit, and in
the' morning they Coneluiled to 'make a
clean breast of it.' The baroness first

"Yes, the dog," reiterated the baron.
"Sentiiff,"'said the har'oness.
"Yes, sent - Off," sighed the baron - .
"Al! yes,"•rejoined; the. baron, "yes

"'No • nev—nev—nev—never see poor

"Can you forg,ive me,. my -dear Buz

ishedf.baron ; "why;l'--am the one who

"..Icon sent off, the dog?" inquired the
baroness, now on her part perfectly as
"Yes, I'sent •off the dog." •
"Yes, by Grimswig."
"Tci be drowned ?" •
"Yes, to be drowned."
Then the odd voincidence of the yhole ,
affair at once 'flashed through } their
'thihde;ciii which they 'both wept; and.
begged forgiveness of each 'other'; . and

But when they thought of poor Dun

loved her, dear Baron Buzfuz better
than ail the , dogp in the world, yet she
would be willing to .set the old castle
on fire if she could only see poor. Dun
