From Rev. J. Newton Brown; D. D., Editor
of the Encyclopedia of Religmes Knowledge.
Although not C‘sposed to favor or recommend
Patent Medicines in general, through di.tttost
of their ingredients and effects; I yet know
of no sutfiei Int reaturewhy a man ma) not tes
tify to the benefits liVbelieves himself to <have
received.from any.:Eilinple - preparation, in the
hope that he may thus ebntribute to the bene
fit of others.
I do this more readily in regard to Hoofland's
German, Bitters, prepared by Dr. C. M. Jackson
because I Was prejudiced against them fora
number of years, under the impression that
tlicy were chiefly an alcoholic mixture. lam
indebted to my friend Ro b't Shoemaker, esq.,
for the removal of this prejudice by proper
tests, and for encouragement to try them, when
suffering from great and long debility. The,
use of three bottles of th%se bitters, at the be-,
ginning of the present year, was followed: by
evident relief, and restoration to a degree of
bodily and mental vigor which I had not felt
for six months before, and had almost dispair
ed of regaining , . I therefore thank God and
my friend for directing me to the use of them-
Philadelphia, June 23, 1362.
We call the atteinton of all having relations

of the diseases induced by privation and ex
posues incident to camp life. In the lists
published almost daily in the newspapers on
theiarrival of the sick, it will be noticeethat
a very large proportion are suffering .from de
bility 4 Every case of that kind can be readi
ly cured /iy Hoofland's German Bitters. We
have no hesitatior in stating that,, if, bit
ters are freely used among our soldiers, Ipind
reds of lives might be saved that otherwise
would be lost.

Restore Health to the .Blood.—A. few
years ago, if it had been asserted that
trees had lungs and
. breathed, the idea
would have been scouted ; yet it is true.
'lle leaves of trees and plants abstract
the vital air or oxygen froin the atmos
phere, and aerate the sap pretty much
in the same way that the lungs of ani'
mals aerate the blood. Upon the- con
dition of this'llaid, (we mean the blood,)
the health of the system through which
it circulates absolutely depends. The
lungs-cannot purify it from the seeds of
disease. Indeed, if they exist in it, the
lungs' themselves Will be in a Morbid
state. ' These things wera..well under-
stood by Dr. Bolloway, when a quarter
of a century ago he gave to the world
his Pills and Okitment, now so celebra
ted in every region of the earth. Bis
design was, to penetrate to the sources
of all internal and external disease in
the circulation, and it would seem that
his preparations accomplish this 'object
with singular rapidity and directness:—
Hence the uniformity of these' cures, we
presume. They seem to produce pre
cisely. the same salutary effects in all
cases, in all climates, and under every
every variety of circumstances—a strong
proof that' they act upon the' causes
rather than the consequences of diseases.
Be this as it may, the fact is undisputed,
that' ha Pills and, Ointment haie be
come the-great popular medicines of-all;
countries, bacanie 'cif their intrinsic ex:
cellence. In diseases of the organs of
respiration, so commou,in this country,

Mr. Jorri3—an uncommon name,
reader—never discovered that he loved
his wife -to distraction until the,very
day of h er , death. When that sad. event
;occurred, he,seemed suddenly to become
conscious .of the •wonderfal .fact that she
could not possibly exist_ without her.—
Ele .plunged, at once into .the , deepest
purgatory of woe; and though; ,he
groaned, wept, wrung handso and
tore his •hair, he.regrstted exceedingly
that he was still unable to express his
grief in a manner. more adequate to the
occasion. Mr. Jones literally waded in
agony and swam in - despair ; he refused
utterly' to be comforted, and touchingly
requested his friends to bury him in the
same" grave with his Sophrortia.
It was a singular circumstance, well
known to the neighbor's, that he had
never' . appeared' sensible of his wife's
'virtues dhring her lifetime; but now,
while she lay dead in the house, the be
reaved husband enumerated such a nata
logue of good traits and dazzling quali
ties as would tire the reader to hear
them repeated. It was ,truly astonish hear from his own Alps what a
marvelous woman Mrs. Jones was—so
kind, so affectionate, so prudent, so
Self-sacrificing, so industrious, and iiuch
a good 'mother ! He wept all the linie
of the funeral service, and at the churnh
yard tried to throw himself into the
grave, in an exacerbation . of grief.. He
returned home :looking -so crtished' - and
woe-begone that the •neighbors said he
would never recover from the shock.
Mrs. Smith met him and tried to as
suage the awful pangs of sorrow which
convulsed his breast. She advised him
to be reconciled to. the will of Heaven,
'and not , .to -rebel against the Divine

"Mrs. Smith," he replied solemnly,

Mrs. Smith;. "but bear your bereave

"Remember that death is the comnao

'lDeath doesn't terrify me," returnee
the widower, in, an impressive tone,—
"It's being left behind."
"Believe me, neighbor Jones, time
will soften your sorrow, ati'd God will
give you strength to bear this visitation."
"Never !" he exclaimed. "1 do not
wish my sorrow softened, and I don't
care about strendth ; in fici, I hope it
may fail, and, my bodily powers decay,
that I may soon follow her to the silent
tomb." "
"Such feelings are sinful, Mr. Jones.

Here the afflicted man had a. fresh
paroxysm of grief, and struck some
highly tragical attitudes, favoring his
kindly-dis Posed neighbor with, some
the most lugubrious expressions ever
attempted and snccessfully achieved,
either on the Stage or off.
"I shall never marry again I The
sainted Mrs. Jones has not her equal on
earth ! The bare idea of a second wife
seems like the rankest treason to de

The worthy woman now fealized that
such 'woe was altogether out of her
depth, and that she could not possibly
fish, up any comfort from the .common
watemoVconsolation and so with `°a
sigh shaJeft the bereaved , Mr. Jones to,

Would you believe it, reader ? Have
you, anticipated the announcement we
are about to, make? Mr. Jones was
married to the widow Perkins in pre
cisely two months after his adored So
phronia's departure from =this world. of
,vicissitudes. All the neighbors talked,
appeared nonplussed, and couldn't com
prehend it in the least. The crushed,
broken•spirited Mr. Jones could not be
found anywhere ; but

what dashing, very carefully-dressed
person bearing that name was frequent

with a lady that sported the unmistaka
ble trappings of a bride. The .serene,
complacent, smiling-looking - individual
must once have been ,the widower, who
forms the subject of this. sketch : People
stopped and gazed. after him in, the
street until his rejuvenated figure was
out of sight ; and this they did for a
long time, before =they could persuade
themselves that the man who wished to
be buried with his dear Sophronia was
affain married.
tin B. Williams, a well-known printer of
New York-, died very that
city on Sunday morning. He. had
worked upon the New York: times for
twelve years past. His. weight was 420
pounds, and it required ; no less than
seventeen yards of broadcloth to com
plete his exterior outfit. His humor
and ready wit were of a saberior order,
and these, with his
portions, made a "host" among hisaiso
ciates. Mr. P. T. Barnum repeatedly
sought him for his popular resort as a
natural curiosity, bnt his exceeding sen
sitiveness and peculier cheracter would
never permit him to become an object
of popular curiosity. He was extremely
timid and bashful "when, in, the presence
of ladies, and would resort to any sub
terfuge to escape their company. Still
more notable characteristics of Mr.
Williams may be found in the simple
fact that he . never knew the taste of ar
dent spirits nor tobacco, never wore an'
overcoat, and eschewed the common
vices 'of mankind to a degree seldom an
nealed. He was a native of Ex.eter, N.
H., and in the 31st year of his age,—'
About a week since, while on his way
home, he was seized with an attack .of
appoplexy, and lingered until Sunday
morning ; when he passed away. •
Lpuis Union of the 22d ult., says this
deplorable accident occurred six miles,
from=i the city, upon a quarry pond,
about 250 yards , from the residence of
Mr. Saiisbury. Young Douglas and.
