Now, In the course of an active, and some
what protracted seafarlnc life. It has been my
fortune to visit the Arctic on several occa
iens,aBdfuvariousstartiBpoiBts,among which, has been San Francisco ; and although
it has always been my object to reach that
ocean In as oimplete a state of preparation as
possible, la order to meet the hardships,
which all, who go there, must battle with, I
am obliged ta confos, that from a short-sight-edcess,
which I can now see has been most
deplorable, I have never thought of making
Sitka a stopping place on the way; and, to
confess the truth, I never should have done
so, had It not been, as It were, forced upon j
me, by the brilliant genius of jour neighbor.
I will eapliln the views I have always held,
In regard to the shortest and best route to I
tJe Arctic, vta BbertDg's ttrait ; by wbtch j
explanation, von will at once be able to per- 1
how natural it has been, for a common
I man like my-elf, to have taken the wtod-
course. For Instance: the distance from :
San Francisco to Sitka, la a direct line. Is j
about 1CC0 miles, in a north and westerly dl-1
rectlon ; bat 1 vessel, In going to SKka from i
San Francisco, would hare to sail, at least, j
2.CC0 miles, during the prevalence of the X. j
W. winds, (and thev are sure to prevail for
more than nine months In the year,) and if
such a Tessd was bound to the Arctic, she
would, when she arrived at Sitka, find her
self some 40 miles north of the Fox Islands,
through wbich she must still pass, in order
to reach Bbering's Strait. From Sitka to the
nearest of the Fox Islands, In a direct lice, Is
about lCO miles In W. S. W., direction;
with the prevailing winds from the west-
ward; a vessel therefore In sallingfromSitka j
to the Fox Islands, would, nnder ordinary
circumstances makeadlstance ofl.aOmites, j
maiangtce wcole distance from San Fran.,
cisco to the For Islaads 3.SCC miles. Now
the distance from Honolulu to the Fox Is
lands Is I,SC0 miles In a direct line; but as
the winds are generally, what are In sailor
parlance called "soldiers winds," (that Is a
wind by which you can sail north or south,
at pleasure,) a vessel would not, on ordinary
occasions sail more than 2,000 miles to reach
the Fox Islands. Now ia my ignorance and
'Pdny, I have always thought.that Honolu-
lu was the very best final starting point for
vessels, bound to the Arctic; better thanany
other port ia this ocean, and have even sup
posed, that if after leaving San Francisco for
the Arctic, a vessel wished to stop at any
port on her way, Honolulu would be the
most natural and convenient port for her to
Your friend has, however, undeceivd me
on this subject, and I am now convinced
that no expedition caa hope for success, cn-
less It fits out at San Francisco, touches and

respect, these Blttera bars nu equal.
For Female Complaints,
Whether ia the young or old, married or sin
gle, at tho dawn of womanhood or tho turn of
life, these Tonic Bitters display so decided an
influence, that a marked improvement is soon
perceptible In the health of the patient.
For Inflammatory Ithoumatiam,
Chronic Kheumatism and Goat, theso Bitters
have bceu most successful. They aro caused
by vitiated blood, which is generally produced
by derangement vf the Digestive Organs.
Tap and other Horns, lurking in the
system of so many thousands on the Pacific
Coast, aro effectually destroyed and removed.
Morbid Condition of tho Blood.
This is the fruitful source of many diseases,
such as Tetter or Salt Ithcum, Ringworm
Boils, Carbuncles. Sores, Ulcers, Pimples, and
Eruptions of all kinds. For the euro of these

Invariably accompanied with extensive de
rangements of the Stomach and Liver, and
other abdominal viscera. There are always
more or less obstructions of the Liver, a weak
ness and irratable state of the Stomach, and
great topor of the Bowels, being clogged up
with vitiated accumulations. In their treat
ment, a purgative, exerting a powerful influ
ence upon these various organs, is essentially
necessary. There is no cathartic for this pur
pose equal to Dr. J. Waller's Vinegar Bitters,
as they will speedily remove the dark-colored
viscid matter with which the bowels are load
ed, at the same time stimulating the secretions
of the Liver, and restoring tho healthy func

universal popularity of this valuable remedy
in regions subject to miasmatic influences, is
sufficient evidence of its power as a remedy in
