Preparations sold under the name or Bitters,
put up in quart bottles, compounded of the
cheapest whisky or common ruin, costing from
20 to 40 cents per gallon, the taste disguised by
Anise or Coriander Seed.
This class of Bitters has caused and will con
ttnue to cause, as long as they can be sold,
hundreds to die the death of the drunkard.—
By their use the system is kept continually
under the influence of alchoholic stimulants of
the worst kind, the desire for liqaoris created
and kept up, and the result is all the horrors
attendant upon.a drunkard's life and death.
For those who desire and will have a Liquor
Bitters, we publish the following receipt Get
one bottle of Hoodand's Bitters and mix with
three quarts of good brandy or whisky, and
the result will be a preparation that will far
excel in medicinal virtues and true excellence
any of the numerous Liquor Bitters in the
market, and wilt cost much less. You,will
have all the virtues of Doollaral's 13itters in
connection with a good article of liquor, at a
much less price than these inferior prepara
tions will cost you.
ArrENTrosi Eoenrcas We call the atten
tion of all having relations or Mends in the
army to the fact that “Hoofland'a German
Bitters" will cure nine-tenths of the diseases
induced by exposures and privations incident
to camp life. In the lists, published almost
daily in the newspapers, on the arrival of the
sick, it will be noticed theta very large pro
imaion are suffering from debility. Every
case of that kind can be readily cured by
Iloufland's Gennau Bitters. Diseases result
ing from disorders of the digestive organs are
Olieedily removed. We have no hesitation in
stating that, if these Bitters were freely used
among our soldiers, hundreds of lives might
be:Staved that otherwise will be lost. .
We call the particular attention to the fol
lowing remarkable and well authenticate,
cure of one of the nation's heroes, whose life

PHILADELPHIA, August 23d, 1562.
Afessrs. Jones 4. .Eveans.— Well, gentleman,
your Hoolland's German Bitters have saved my
life. There is no mistake in this. It is vouch
ed for by numbers of my comrades, some of
whoee names are appended, and who are fully
cognizant of ale he circumstances of my case.
-I am, and have been for the last four years,
a member of Slierman'a celebrated battery,
and under the immediate command of Cap
tain It. B. Ayres. Through the exposure at
terdant upon my arduous duties, I was attack
ed in November last with inflamation 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 'andel on the 28th,
of June. Since that time I have been about
as low as any one could 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 :Dorsal 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, tne physi.
clam who had been working faithfully, though
unsuccessfully to rescue me from the grasp
of the dread Archer, frankly told tne they
could do no more for me, and advised me to
see a clergyman, and to make such disposi
tion of my limite 1 funds as beat suited me.—
An acquaintance who visited me at the hospi
tal, Mr. Frederick Steinoron, 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 bettor. Tho'
I have taken but two bottles, I have gained
ten pounds, and I fell sanguine of being per
mitted to rejoin my wife and daughter, front
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 placo of vague fears
your Bitters will I owe the glourious pri
vilege of again clasping to my bosom those
who are dearest to me in life.
Very truly yours, ISAAC MA LONE.
We fully concur in the truth of the above
etatement, as we had despaired of seeing our
comrade, Mr. Malone, restored to health.

THE HEART AND THE LIVER.
MUSINGS OF A DYSPEPTIC.
She's broken hearted, I have heard—
Whate'er may be the reason;
(Such things will happen now and then
In Love tempestuous season.)
But still I marvel she should'Show
No plainer outward token,
If such a vital inward part
Were very badly broken
She's broken-hearted, I am told, •
And so, of course, believe it;
When truth is fairly certified, •
I modestly receive it ;
But after such an accident,
It surely is a blessing,
It doesn't in the least impair
Her brilliant style of dressing.
She's broken-hearted ; who can doubt
The noisy voire of Rumor?
And yet she seems, for such• a wreck,
In no unhappy humor;
She sleeps, I hear, at proper hours,
When other folks are dozy ;
Her eyes are sparkling as of yore,
And still her cheeks are rosy !
She's broken-hearted, and they say
•the never can. recover ;
And then—in not the mildest way—
They blame some fickle lover;
I know she's dying—by degrees—
But, sure as I'm a sinner,
I saw her eat, the other day,
A most prodigious.dinner !
Alas! that I, in idle rhyme,
Should e'er profanely question,
(As I have done while musing o er
My chronic indigestion),
If one sl ould not receive the blow
With blessings on the giver,
That only falls upon the heart,
And kindly spares.the liver!

WOMAN'S CALL TO THE MEN OF '62.
But a ltttle while ago
Went brave heroes from our aide,
Eager, longing or the foe—
Many for their country died.
Still that foe is marching on
Where " Old Glory " floats to-day ;
Brothers, rouse ye, and begone—
Take our blessing, and away !
We, who looked so frail and weak,
Shrinking at the sight of blood :
Now we've but one word to speak,
Go ! and trust your lives with God.
He who marks the sparrow's fall
Guide your footsteps in the fray ;-
Only hear the country's call—
Take our blessing, and away !
For the sake of those who lie
Pale in death for freedom's sake,
We send our loved ones, nor sigh
For the sacrifice we make.
Time and tide brook no delay !
Now this great work must be done—
Take oar blessing, and away!
Bless'd and honored shall ye be,
If God send you back in peace,
When our country shall be free,
And this dreary warfare cease.
But till honor is secure
Not one moment be your stay!
Prove what freemen can endure—
Take our blessing, and away !
if ye come not back again,
You shall watch us from aboie—
Calm and steadfast, through all pain,
Worthy of your highest Jove.
We have vowed a solemn vow
Ne'er to yield to rebel sway :
Only cowards linger now—
Take our blessing, and away !

MARIETTA, PA., SATURDAY, JULY 18, 1863.
What Young People. Should Know.
The best inheritance that people can
leave children is the ability to help
themselves. This is better than a hun
dred thousand dollars a piece. In any
trouble or difficulty they will have two
excellent servants ready, in the shape of
their two hands. Those who can do
'nothing and have to be witted on, are
helpless, and easily disheartened at the
misfortunes of life. Those who are ac
tive and hardy meet troubles with a
cheerful face, and soon surmount them.
Let'young people, therefore, learn to
do as many different things as possible.
Every farmer's boy should know how,
sooner or later,
1. To dress himself, black his own
shoes, cut his brother's hair, wind a
watch, sew on a button. make a bed,
and keep all his clothes in perfect order.
2. To harness a horse, grease a wag
on and drive a team.
3. To carve and wait on the dinner
4. Milk the cows, shear the sheep,
and dress a veal or mutton.
5. To reckon money, and keep ac-
counts accurately, and according to
good book-keeping tides.
6. To write a, neat, appropriate,
briefly expressed business letter, in a
good hand, and to fold and subscribe it
7. To plow, sow grain and grass seed,
drive a mowing machine, swing a scythe,
build a stack and a load of hay.
8. To put up a package, build a fire,
whitewash a wall, mend broken tools,
and regulate a clock.
There are many other things which
would render boys more useful-to them
selves and others—these are merely a
specimen. But the young man who can
do all things well, and who is ready at
all times to assist others, will command
far more respect and esteem than if he
knew merely how to drive fast horses,
smoke cigars, play cards, and talk non
sense to foolish young ladies at parties.
VALUE of A XUSEMENT.—The world
must be amused. It is entirely false
reasoning to suppose that any human
being can devote himself exclusively to
labor of any description. It will not
do. Rest will not give him adequate
relief. He must be amused. He must
enjoy himself. De must laugh, sing,
dance, eat, drink and be merry. Ile
must chat with his friends, exercise his
mind in exciting gentle emotions, and
his body in agreeable demonstrations of
activity. The constitution of the hu
man system demands this. It exacts
variety of influences and motion. It
will not remain 'in health if it cannot
obtain that variety. Too much merri
ment affects it as injuriously as too
much sadnessi too much relaxation is
as pernicious as none at all. But, to
the industrious toiler, the sunshine of
the heart is just as indispensable as the
material sunshine is to the flower ; both
soon pine away and die if deprived of
A FACT FOR "TIPPLERS."—PauI Bart
lett is employed as a laborer at Tndhall
Iron Works, Durham, and has been a
teetotaller rourteen.years. His employ
ment consists in wheeling iron to the
furnaces. He works nine hours a day,
and five days per week. He wheels
twenty-four tons of iron each day„ four
hundred weight at a timee. The distance
traversed is nearly nine miles per day.
He thus walks 45 miles per week of five
days, wheeling in the same time 120
tons of iron. Daring the fourteen years
Paul has driven his barrow, with its four
hundred weight of iron, not less than
365 miles and has wheeled in the same
time 87 1 365 tons. He can, on a "pinch,"
place one ton weight on his barrow, and
wheel it several yards. I leave these
facts for the imitation and consideration
of our "tipplers," who cannot work with
ENGLISH GIRLS.—The English girl
spends more than half her waking hours
in physical amusements, which tend to
devalope, invigorate, and ripen the
bodily powers. She rides, walks, drives,
and rows upon the water, rang, dances,
plays, jumps the rope, throws the ball,
hurls the quoit, draws the bow, keeps
up the shuttle cock, and all this without
having it pressed forever upon her mind
that she is thereby wasting her time.—
She does this every day until it becomes
a habit which she will follow up through
life. lier frame, as a natural cone
quuence, is large, her muscular system
is in better subordination, her strength
more enduring, and the whole tone of
her voice healthier. - Gide, think of
MOZART, THE COMPOSER.—MOZart died
in great- poverty, and his burial was a
sorrowful one. He bad brain fever;
and, after keen suffering, he fell asleep
peacefully at one o'clock on the morn
ing of the sth of December, 1791. On
the 6th of December, at 3 o'clock in the
afternoon, his body was carried to the
Metropolitan Church, in Vienna, where
the -customary prayers were said over
it in a side chapel. When the little
funeral left the church, it was raining
and snowing fiercely, and the storm
continued with such violence that, on
arriving at the gates of the city, the few
friends who followed his remains so far
resolved to return ; thus the body went
to the grave gnattended by a single
relative or friend. No loved or loving
one stood on the edge of the grave as
the coffin was lowered into the ground.
The man who had charge of the sad
business hustled him into a common
grave, with a dozen or more coffins in
it, covered over the opening, and hur
ried off without doing so little as to_
mark where he laid the poor, great Mo
zart! And Constance Weber, Mozart's
patient, devoted wife, where was she ?
111—so ill when her husband died as to
be blessedly unconscious of his burial.
But after a while she recovered, and
when she went, with weak, faint steps
to her husband's grave, the unhappy
woman found that the grave-maker had
not the faintest recollection of where be
had buried him. And to this day not
Vienna, nor any one in the world,
knows where the great Mozart is bur
MR. CONWAY TO MR. MASON,-Our
European news mentions a letter of Mr.
Moncure D. Conway to Mr. Mason, the
rebel minister, on the subject of eman
cipation. Mr. Conway commences his
letter, dated June 10th, by informing
Mr. Mason, that he (Conway) is author
ized, on. behalf of the Anti-slavery peo
ple of America, who have sent him to
this country, to propose that, if the
Confederate States will immediately
commence the work of negro emancipa
tion, the Abolitionists and Anti-slavery
leaders of-the Northern States shall at
once oppose the further prosecution of
the war ; and, since they hold the bal
ance of power, they will cause the war
to cease, by an immediate withdrawal of
every kind of supplies. Mr. Mason re
plied to this by saying that the propo
sition is worthy of the greatest consid
eration, and requests Mr. Conway to
produce his credentials. To this re
quest Mr. Conway answers that he will
send to America for them. Mr, Mason,
on receipt of Mr. Conway's reply, at
once termicated the correspondence.
IRON CLAD LADIES.—The last new
thing in the way of dress ornamentation
is leather. The. Princess Metternich
made her appearance lately in a dress
of Havana•colored silk, ornamented with
leather trimmings, studded with steel
headed nails. The bonnet was of the
same material; ornamented in a like
manner, and, strange to say, so was the
parasol. Similar ornaments are the
rage among ladies in New York city.
They make the fair wearers look as if
they were iron-clad.
A GREAT SALT DEPOSIT.-It appears
from scientific investigation that the
salt deposit at New Iberia, Louisiana,
is of the most extensive and wonderful
description. For vastness and, purity it
is unequaled on the globe. One account
says :—"lmagine, if you can, the granite
quarry of Massachusetts or the marble
quarry of - Vermont to be . solid deposits
of pure rock salt, clean and transparent
as so much clear white ice, in one solid,
inexhaustible mass, underlying the earth
and you then.acquire an imperfect idea
of the vastness of this salt formation.

A SINGULAR ROMANCE.—Some thirty.
four years ago a young man left his
bride in Amsterdam, with the object of
proceeding to America in order to bet
ter his position. Soon after his arrival
he wrote to his wife enclosing a certain
sum of money to enable her to proceed
to New York to - join him. This letter
was sent to his brother, who kept the
money, destroyed the' letter, concealed
the whole matter from his sister-in-law,
represented to her that her husband had
died, and forthwith left the country.—
Her husband in the course of time mar
ried a second wife in New - York; he
succeeded well in business, while his
wife iu Amsterdam regarded him as
dead, and was making arrangements for
her second marriage. That event, how
ever, never occurred; for her second
lover died a few days before the day
fixed for the wedding. Her husband,
meanwhile, last year lost his New York
wife, and having made a fortune, which
he was unwilling to subject to the risks
of war, he disposed of his business, and
a short time ago returned to Amster
dam to sec:Lance more the place of his
birth. During those -thirty-four years
of absence the few friends that he had,
had died or otherwise vanished ; but
accident brought to light the fact that
the brido he had left behind him was
still alive. She, indeed, during all this
time had lived in comparative penury;
but he is rich.: The bride and bride
groom of thirtylour years ago, some
what changed in externals, are again
husband and wife.
' SLEEPING IN RIFLE PITS.-A letter
from Vicksburg says that many men
stay in the rifle pits day and night.—
There is one that extends nearly half a
mile, which is only three feet wide, and
ten feet deep. In the side of this.they
have cut bunks like those upon a ship.
A man measures himself, makes a re
cess about his size, spreads his India
rubber blanket in it, and sleeps as quiet
ly as at home. In the forts where the
artillerists are at work, I have seen men
steep beside the guns that fairly shook
the hills, and sleep as soundly and
sweetly as though peace still spread her
kindly mantle•o'er ns and silence reigned
HENRY CLAY'S REMAINS.-A corres
pondent of the Newark, N. J. Adver
tiser, 'writing from Lexington, (Ky.,)
under date of June 16th, speaks of
visit he paid to the tomb of Henry Clay,
at Lexington. After describing the
monument, he states that there is a
marble sarcophagus in the.base intended
for the reception of the remains, which
he says, he was told, cannot be found,
they having been removed from where
they were first interred by some un
known persons. If this is , true, it is;not
strange that the fact has not before
been made public.
"TURN TO THE Rmin."—Dr. John
Struthers maintains, in the Edinburg
Medical Journal, that men, and women
too, are lop-sided, weighing about fifteen
ounces more on the right side than on
the - left. According to this there
would appear to be a sound physiologi
cal reason for the almost universal rule
of the road, "keep to the right." The
preponderance of matter on that aide
would make it easier to turn quickly in
that direction. Does the rule, perhaps,
hold good of horses, too !

SINGULAR SUPERSTITION.—In one of
the rural districts of Massachusetts
lives a little, weazen.faced, anxious
man, of remarkable lingual develop
ments. This old man, though near a
railroad junction, never set foot in a
rail car, or was more than fifty miles
from home. It can hardly be wonder
ful that he is somewhat superstitious.—
In conversation, recently, relative to a
sick neighbor, whose death had been
daily and hourly expected, he thus
sagely delivered himself: "I don't be
lieve but what that sick man has pigeon
feathers in his bed, for they say whoever
sleeps on pigeon feathers never'll die.
Theiv was old Miss —, who lived
along several years after the doctors had
given her up. For a long time she
kept her hand going pit-a•pat on her
breast, just like a flattering pigeon's
wing. When her friends were all tired
out tending her, and wondered what
made her live on so, a stranger, hearing
of the case, came into the house and
asked if there were any pigeon feathers
around her. Her relatives were great
hunters and caught swarms of pigeons,
and of course they saved the feathers
and made use of them, and had a pigeon
feather pillow between the upper and
under bed. By just pulling out this
pillow, the old woman dropped quietly
away in fitteen minutes. So there must
be something militating in feathers."—
Won't this inflate the feather market?
WHAT WE OWE TO DECOEUM.-"I will
do just as I please," says many a head
strong young man, "for whose business
is it, if 1 choose to take the consequen
ces?" Not so fast, good sir. If yon
knew more of human nature you would
be aware that you cannot outrage even
the smallest conventionalities of life,
which are known under the common
name of decorum, without injuring your
reputation, estranging your friends, and
preventing strangers, who might be
useful to you, from making your ac
quaintance. Bat this is not all. You
have no right to disregard decorum, for
the consequences reach others than
yourself. Your example is always do
ing harm when it is not doing good.—
Your conduct affects the standing of
your family and associates as well as
yourself. Going through life is like
treading among a labyrinth of spring
guns. If you follow the beaten track
you are yourself safe. But if yon di
verge to the right or left, your indiscre
tion is sure to injure yourself, and may
harm others also. A wise man never
outrages decorum, recklessly violates
prejudices, or thoughtlessly acts regard
less of the opinion of the world.
