This class of Bitters has caused and will con

hundreds to die the death of the drunkard.—
By their use the system is kept eoutinually
under the influence of alchoholic stimulants of
the worst kind, the desire for liquor is created
and kept up, and the result is all the horrors
attendant upon a drunkard's life and death.

PHILADELPHIA, August 231, 1852
Mesere. Jones .f gentleman,
your lloothind'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
whose names are appended, and who are fully
cognizant of all the circumstances ofmy case.
I ens, and have been for the last four years,
a member of Sherman's celebrated battery,
and under the immediate comroand,of Cap
tain It. B. Ayres. Through the exposure at
tecdant upon my arduous duties, I was attack
ed in November last with inflarnation of the
lungs, and was for seventy-two days in the
hospital. This was &Bowed 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 2Sth,
of.lune. 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
Mice a morsel down, it was immediately
thrown up 'again.
1 ceuld. not even keep a glass of water on
my stomach. Life could not last under these
circumstances: and, accordingly, the physi
cians 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 Balitei funds as best suited me.—
An acipaintance who visited me at the hospi
tal, 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 Mena the
gloomy shado VI of death receded, and I ern
now, thank God for rt, getting better- The'
I have taken but two betties, I have gained
ten pounds, and 1 feel sanguine ofbeing per
mitted 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 Bitters will I owe the glourious pri
vilege of' again clasping to my bosom those
who are dearest to me inlife.
Very truly yours, ISAAC MA LONE.

All nature with emphatic speech,
Since chaos ceased to reign, '
Has sought mankind this truth to teach,
But sought, alas in vain;
While History turns its teeming page
.To man's acid nation's sight., .
And still cries out, from age to age,,
" The future makes all right !"
There ne'er has been an evil deed,
Or governmental crime,
That did not retribution speed, •
And was avenged by time ; •
And low and high, and small and great,

Of seeming triumph spite, .
The reign of wrong is but an hour—
" The future makes all right I"
And think not even the guiltiest thing
Is dead to human weal,
Or last to conscience, or its sting—
It may be forced to feel !

And seems to hrar, from earth and skies,

Then who shall dare avow the creed,
Eternal goodness scorns—
That innocence must ever bleed
While virtue treads on thorns;
That hope, to dry affection's tears,
Neer checks its onward flight,
Or murmurs in its listless ears,
" The future makes all right !"
There is a joy, which, midst all joy,
Sits crowned upon a throne ; •
The only one without alloy—'
It springs from duty done ;
And he, whose throbbing bosom glows

Illustrasive of the necisesity of some
information being furnished of the State
Insane Asylum, regarding the history of
patients placed under their care, we re
late an incident which is truly wonder
ful : - -
Nearly two years ago a German was
sent to the Asylum from one of the in
terior counties, who was afflicted with
melancholy to such an extent as to be
deemed incurable. He did not speak
for many months, and had to be taken
out occasionally by the keepers of the
institution to breathe the fresh out-door
breeze. He appeared to be almost dead
to all sense of observation, and it seem
ed that every spark of mental life had
fled forever. Lost to. the world, his
friends, and himself, he presented the
heart-rending spectacle of a living - hu
man form without a ray of mental light
the mind a dungeon, dark and solitary,
lost. Eventually some one who had
been acquainted, with the poor fellow in
the mines wrote a letter to -Dr. 'Tilden,
making inquiries concerning him, which
letter the doctor answered at once, and
nothing further transpired until the doc
tor receive& a, letter from the -man's
wife in the East, accompanying which
was her daguerreotype and also the da-'
guerreotype of her children. She.wrote
to her husband in the-German language,
and the letter which the doctor received
was a transcript of what she had written
to her husband. The doctor took the
daguerreotypes ,and presented them to
the man, or rather held_ them •steadily
before him. He- appeared to gaze calm
ly at, the pictures, and in a short time
the organs of • vision appeared to be
more fixed and his look, morelntensified,
until at length -he burst into tears and.
," My wife, my children.'‘
The letter was given to.him, and -be
wept like a child. Alatent spring, long
dormant, had been. touched, and .the
mind awakened from a long sleep.
Disenthralled and.e.mancipated from the
darklakode of unconsciousness, the soul
strove to regain the light it had lost and
succeeded. The man is curedis well ;
and the life-giving pulsation that rein
stated reason on her throne was the
vision, of his wife and children. This
incident only illustrates bow absolutely
necessary it is to furnish the physician
with all the information possible of the
history of those placed under their care
at the time they aro sent to the ioetitu-
Lion, so that all :the assistance possible
may be rendered to the doctors in. their
efforts to restore reason. ' •

THE TRUE L4DY.-A celebrated wri
ter says : No woman can be a lady who
would wound or mortify another. No
matter how beautiful, how refined, how
culttvated she may be, she is in reality
coarse, and the innate vulgarity of hor
nature manifests itself here., Uniformly
kind, courteous, and polite treatment of
all persons is one mark of a true woman.

are the apple-dumplings.

.Maizena is a preparation made from

We are not able .h.ete to 'give the pro

besides, there are some .peculiarities
about it which the Messrs. Duiryea pre

the exclusive right to manufacture it ;
they intend, and deserve to make some
money out of it, - and so long as they fur

consent to their doing, so.

correspondent of the Watchman and

"Bunyan lies in Bunhill Fields, a
cemetery crowded with graves and thick

Bunyan's grave :
"'Yes,' said he, 'there he lies, covered
with a sheet.'

there indeed he did lie, wrapped in a
cloak, with a book under his arm, sleep

grave. On the monument is the simple
but sufficient inscription :

"On one side, chiselled in the stone;

his staff, with a countenance of deepest
anguish, On the opposite side is Pil

At the battle of Stone River, while the
men were lying behind a crest waiting,
a brace of frantic wild turkeys, so para
lyzed with fright that they were incapa

endeavored to bide among the men.
But the frenzy among the turkeys
was not so touching as the exquisite
fright of the birds and rabbits. When
the roar of battle rushed through the
cedar thickets, flocks of little birds flut
tered and circled above the field in a
state of utter bewilderment, and scores
of rabbits fled for protection to our men
lying down in line tin our left, nestling
under their coats and creeping under
their legs in a state of utter distraction;
They hopped over the fields like toads,
and as perfectly tamed by fright as
household pets. Many officers witnessed
