Persona of sedentary habits troubled with weak
ens, lassitude, palpitation of the heart, lack o
appetite, distress after eating, torpid liver, eon
Btipation, Ac, deserve to suffer if they will not
try tbe celebrated
PLANTATION BITTERB,
which are now recommended by the highest medi
cal authorities, and warranted to produce an im
mediate beneficial effect. They are exceedingly
agreeable, perfectly pure, and must supercede all
other tonics where a healthy, gentle stimulant is
required.
They purify, strengten and invigorate.
Tbey create a healthy appetite.
They are an antidote to a change of water and
diet.
Tbey overcome effects of dissipation aud late
hours.
Tbey strengthen the system and enliven the
mind.
They prevent miasmatic and intermittent fevers
They purify the breath and acidity of the
stomach.
Tbey cur? Dyspepsia and Constipation,
They cure Diarrhea, Cholera, and Cholera
Morbo?. ,
Tbey cure Liver Complaint and Nervous Head
ache.
They make the weak strong, the languid bril
lant, and are exhausted nature's great restorer.
They are composed of the celebrated Calisaya
bark, wintergreen, sassafras, roots and herbs, all
preserved in perfectly pure St. Croix rum. For
particulars, see circulars and testimonials around
each bottle.
Beware of impoaters. Examine every bottle.
See that it has D. S. Barnes' sigrature on our pri
vate U.S. Stamp over the cork, with plantation
scene, and our firm signature on a fine steel plate
ngraving on side label. See that our bottle is net
refilled with spurious and deleterious stuff. We defy
any person to match the taste or character of our
goods. Any person pretending to sell Plantation
Bitters by the gallon or in bulk, is an impost?is
We sell only in our log cabin bottle. Any person
imitating this bottle, or selling any other material
therein, whether called Plantation Bitters or not,
is a criminal under the U. S. Law, and will be so
prosecuted by us. We already have our eye on two
partite refilling our bottles, Ac, who will succeed
In getting themselves into clo3e quarters. The
demand for Drake's Plantation Bitters from ladies,
clergymen, merchants, Ac, is perfectly incredible
The simple trial of a bottle is the evidence we pre
sent of their worth aud superiority. They ares..!d
by all reepeetable druggists, grocers, physicians,
hotels, saloons, steamboats an J country stores.

??????? OF TBB C-OTHIBR8 AT THB ClTY
Hall.?Last evening a nnmber of tbe clo
thiers ol this city assembled in the chamber ot
the Aldermen, ia the City Hall, to counsel to
gether for the purpose of eecuriog a revoca
tion of General Order, No. 4, Issued by Colonel
Ingraham, by order of Colonel Wisewell, mili
tary governor, ?'prohibiting the sale of cloth
ing to any enlisted man upon discharge pa
pers that he rray present, until sa-d papen
have been examined, and a special permit
obtained from these headquarter?.
?'Any violation or evasion of this order will
be promptly and severely punished, and the
offenders subjected to the full penalty attached
to the disobedience ol this and other existing
orders relating thereto."
Mr. U. King, Jr., called the assemblage to
order.
Mr. Ellis Lyons waa elected chairman.
Mr. Jacob b?emhoff, vice pr?sident; Mr. M.
J. Waldheimer secretary; Mr. M. Hamburger,
treasurer.
On motion of Mr. Kins; it was resolved that
the organization should be permanent.
On motion of Mr. Sol. Hebel, it was resolved
that a committee of five should be appointed to
draft resolutions expressive of the sense of the
meeting npon the subject to consider which
they had convened.
The chair appointed as said committee
Messrs. H. King, jr., Moses Hamburger, G.
C. Henning, A. Heilbrun, and Nathan Gross
mayer.
Mr. Groismayer declined, aad the meeting
substituted the chairman, Mr. Lyons, and made
him chairman of the committee.
The committee were instructed to report at
a subsequent meeting.
The Chairman then read a letter whiah he
had prepared, addressed to Col. Ingraham, in
substance as follows :
Having referred to the Order No. 4, he said
be would not deny tbe necessity of using all
legitimate means to prevent desertion. But he
would And that not one dealer in ten would
take the trouble to get the permission to sell.
He would, therefore, suggest that all the
dealers should be required to endorse on every
discharge held by a soldier to whom they sold
the amount and character of the sales, and that
all should be prohibited from selling citizens'
clothes to any person holding a discharge bo
endorsed.
Mr. King stated that he had waited on Coi.
Ingraham, and bad been informed by him that
he (the Colonel) could net modify the order,
bnt must carry it out, and wonld put in the
Old Capitol every one who would violatq it
Mr. Weiser said several gentlemen who had
been at tbe Provost Marshal's to consult about
this matter had been ordered to leave, very
unceremoniously.
Mr. Grossmayer said he had been well treat
ed at the Pr?vost Marshal's office. He believed,
too, that there were good grounds for some re?
strictions opon the sale of clothing in this city,
under existing circumstances, and in view of
wrong-doing on tbe part of some of the dealers.
He thought the difficulty could be settled with
the Secretary of War or some of the military
authorities.
On motion of Mr. Henning, it was resolved,
that all the dealers present should contribute
one dollar eaeh to defray the expenses of the
meeting. The treasurer proceeded to collect the
money, and reported as the result the sum of
twenty-five dollars.
The president and secretary were instructed
to call a meeting of the association on Tuesday
evening next, and to publish the notice in the
C Ar?mele and the Star.
Aebnry Lloyd, Esq., having entered the
room, the president suggested that the meeting
wonld like to bear from him, which suggestion
the meeting approved by unanimously calling
upon Mr. Lloyd.
Mr. Lloyd said he went with Mr. King, and
had the pleasure of meeting the Military Gov
ernor. The speaker stated to the Governor,
both In his professional capacity and ae a citi
zen, ia behalf of the gentlemen Interested In
this meeting, and of the citizens of Washington
generally, that be believed the order calculated
to do injustice. He called the attention of the
Governor to the tact that many persons in this
city were making money, who were allowed to
do business here without contributing to tbe
revenue of the Government or paying a license
to the city of Washington.
Col. Wisewell said every merchant bad a
right to sell to discharged soldiers, but if the
discharges proved to be spurious, the sellers o
clothing to them must take tbe consequences or
a violation of Order No. 4. If such sales
were made to men having spurious dis
charges, the sellers would be put in the Old
Capitol.
The speaker teld Col. W. that a meeting of
these specially interested in this matter wonld
probably be held, and he would probably be
waited upon by a committee from said meeting;
that he regarded the order as working a great
hardship upon many honest dealers, and
that he beli'.'ved tbe Mayor was of the same
opinion.
Mr. Lloyd concluded by remarking that he
and Mr. Klug had been very courteously re
ceived, and. throughout the interview, kindly
treated by Col. Wisewell.
Mr. King suggested that he had since seen
the Provost Marshal, and that gentleman had
said that the dealers must not sell to any sol
dier upon any discharge.
Mr. Lloyd said that statement, if correct,
proved that there was a conflict of under
standing between the Military Governor and
the Provost Marshal. He would suggest that
a committee should be appointed to wait upon
the Military Governor, and respectfully re
quest a revocation of Order No. 4.
Mr. Gasenheimer said, if there were any
forged dischargee the forgers of them should
Le punished. The clotbing-dealers should not
suffer.
The chairman made a few remarks, in which
be insisted that the order prohibiting any sales
to discharged soldiers without special permits,
and any violation of it, would certainly be
punished by imprisonment. He regarded tbe
order as an outrage upon their rights as Amer
ican citizens, and a violation of the Constitu
tion. He thought it must be the result of pre
judice among the clerks of tbe Provost Mar
shal, and of unjust statements on their part,
perhaps prompted by their not being able to
fet credit among some of the dealers. Colonel
ngraham was unquestionably an honorable
gentleman.
If the order was to continue in force, they
might as well shut up all their stores. When
Order No. 3 had been issued, the clothing deal
ers had submitted readily; but now it was their
dnty manfully to assert their rights. If they
did not, their business would be destroyed.
Tbey were all supporters of the Government,
and be hoped tbey always would be. Though
not half of tbe dealers in clothing were pres
ent, he believed those there paid $'20,000 in
taxes to the Government, and they had a right
to be heard, and to have this grievance re
dressed. As tbe matter stood, they were all
liable to be arrested by detectives with dis
charge papers in soldiers' clothes. He thanked
God they were under the stare and stripes, and
believed tbey would be protected, if they were
manly and true to themselves.
The meeting then adjourned.
Foitkih Ward Draft ???t???.?The citi
zens of the Fourth Ward assembled at the
Council Chamber last night In large numbers,
for the purpose of adopting some means where
by tbe draft may be avoided in this city.
Mr. Aebnry Lloyd was called to the chair,
and Mr. R. S. Davis was elected secretary.
Mr. Ly les introduced a resolution that a com
mittee of three be appointed to wait upon the
Provoet Marshal General and solicit a post
ponement of the draft. The resolution was
amended, authorizing a committee of seven to
call npon the Provoet Marshal, and the follow
ing wer? appointed, via: E. Wallach, Jos. H.
Bradley, Jno. P. Pepper, H. Lyles, P. F. Bacon,
Asbury Lloyd, and W. W. Moore.
These gentlemen were authorized to call
npon the ward delegations and solicit their
co-operation In the matter of devising means to
defer the draft until a future day.
Mr Wharton moved an adjournmeBt until
Saturday Bight, when it was euggeeted that
the Democratic ratiflcatioa meeting would take
place in the hall; and lt was afterwards re
solved that the citizens of the ward reassemble
at4o'clock to-d?y. _ ."_._, ,_
On motion of Mr Tompkine, a committee of
ten was appointed to solicit contributions; and
Messrs. C. M. Tompkins, Mr. Topham, J. T.
Chauncey, James English, J. T. Halleck, Wm.
Douglas, F. H. Stitt, Wm. Fraeer, John Cun
ningham and John Walker were appointed
the committee.
Officer Crown said he would guarantee to
furnish SO men by next Wednesday if a ward
bounty, in connection with the city and Gov
ernment bounties, of one bandied dollars coald
be paid.
Mr. Wbarton submitted a resolution to the
effect that all moneys contributed shall be for
the payment of recruits, and credited to the
Fourth ward, which was adopted.

Third Assistant Poetmaeter-G<-n?-ral Zevelv
bas been in tliis city for the paet w? en, makinc
the final arrangements to pai into eff^vi. tri*
new railway post office system, on the bbBbBbI
ot which he has been engaged, under tne diree
ticn of Postmaster-General Blair, for some time
past.
The preparations are now in each a stale of
forwardness as to permit the beginning of the
work on the throne h line between this city and
Washington next Monday night. Two of the
new care will start at that time?one from this
city and one from Washington. The neoseea
ry experiment? have already been made.
The Postmaster General baa long had the
subjeet before him.of introducing railway poat
offices on the principal ronda in tbe United
States, and cars are bow running on one
route?that between Chicago and Clinton The
application of the system here, with Improved,
cars, arrangements adequate to the tranaaetlon
ot the immense postal business of tbe Atlantic
States, required more time; and the general
co-operation of the railroad companies (an es
sential condition, as the Department has no
mean? of constructing th? new care that are
needed,) had to be secured. Most of the obsta
cles have been removed; tbe necessity of adopt
ing the improved system appears to be ac
knowledged; the Camdea and Amboy aad the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad companie? are
constructing care; the Erie Company has aleo
begun the work; and some of the manager? ef
the fonr companies which comprise the?Boeion
line have partially agreed to undertake it.
Other companies will doubtless enter luto the
arrangement ; bnt nothing will now prevent
the complete success of the plan. Tbe rail
way poet office system may be considered es
tablish???*?
THB WA8HINOTOH LIN B.
The cars which ?tart on Monday night have
already been alluded tj. They contain three
or fonr hundred pigeon holes each for postal
matter, with every convenience tor the distri
bution of the mails. The force required far
tbe work on each railway post office will eoa
eist of one superintendent ( who will be a kind
of postmaster) and four clerks. On tne Wash
ington line, mail? will be taken for all th? prin
cipal points?Newark, Trenton, Philadelphia,
Havre de Grace, Baltimore and some other
points; as well aa for places connecting with
these cities. Distributions will be mad? for
stations not on the regalar line, in such man
ner as will enable tbe postmaster to whom tb?
matterie delivered to send it forward at once,
and without the ordinary assorting process???
through which so many delays occur.
The great vaine of the new system will not
be apparent until railway pos tuffi.?? s are placed
on all the lines; bat the immediate gain to
persons residing in this city, Philadelphia and
Washington, who send letters oetweeo three
points, will be three or lour hours Packages
which must now be in tne postoffice at six
o'clock, in order to be sent t?y the half pact
seven o'clock express train mail, can be for
warded on Monday and afterwards by the
cars at the moment of starting. Then the lot
ten are to be distributed on board, that on ar
riving at any place on the route, they may be
put into the hands of the carriers, and at oace
delivered to the persons to whom they are di
rected.
Tbe Washington morning mall will be pre
pared on the cars for the firstmornlnga*llv*ry
in tbe city, instead of waiting, as now, for the
?econd or third?a gain of two hours or more?
in many cases a most important saving ef
time to onr business community.
WHAT WILL BB ACCOMPLI8HBD.
But it is a principal feature of the system
that the tedious dis tri butions of mail? from
various parts of the country, in onr principal
cities, will be avoided. Letters coming from
Washington and other eitle? to the sou ta'ward,
for Boston, have, nnder the old plan, to be
brought to the New York office; and because of
tbe time occupied in distributing and trane
ferrlng the matter, tbe mail for the East is lost,
and the lettere delayed not aafreqaeatly aa
?ntire day.
Instead of this detention here and elsewhere,
?he mails, when the new system is complete,
will be sent from one railway post office to the
other; and the authorities are particularly de
sirous that the cars for the eastern route may
be ready at the earliee possible moment, so aa
to give tbe four moat important cities of the
Union the advantages tnat will hereafter be
extended to all important towns in the coan
tr"i,?
Railway post offices have been lu use tor
many years in France and England, with tbe
best results; and to the fact that oar railroad
companies were almost without exception op
posed to the system, because it would compel
them to adopt new time tables, and otherwiee
incommode them, is principally due our fail
are to adopt it before now.
A few months hence, the Government mails
will be carried as rapidly as those of the ex
press companies, which, on acconnt of the
speed with which they do the wwrk, have mo
nopolized much cf the letter carrying busi
ness.
The delays which enable passengers who
start for any given point at a time when a let
ter may be mailed, or subsequently, to reach
tbeir destination a day or two before the letter
arrives, will no longer exist.
It is the intention of the officers charged with
tbe important work now in hand to place oar
mill facilities on a footing eqnal to those en
joyed by any people in the world.?jV. F. Post

??An Annual Streak of Bad Luck."
Tbe Richmond Whig has the foUowlng re
markable article :
m \\ e have now fairly entered our re,ular an
nual streak of bad luck. The recurrence ef
these streaks is somewhat wonderful to the un
reflecting. The first began In the first year of
tbe war with the mishap at Dranesville, and
continued almost without intermission natii
the spring of the following year, whea Jack
son electrified the country with bis famous
Valley campaign. After that the tide turned
and ran in our tavor until Lee was rebuffed at
Sharpsburg. Then the current set in the o mer
way, and e? remained until Baraslde was de
moralized at Fredericksburg, when it again
changed and ran somewhat in favor of the
enemy until the battle of Chancellorsville. The
campaign of 1803 opened brightly for us.
and good fortune followed our arm? until the
latal July when the repulee at Gettys
burg was succeeded by the fall of Vickabarg.
A series ot gloomy months ensued, relieved
by the great victory atChickamauga, bat aoon
eiouded again by the melancholy evante of
Missionary Ridge and Knoxvllle. In the first
month of winter, we emerged from the streak
ot bad luck, and, beginning with the minor
successes of Longstreet and Jones, a spring
and summer of uninterrupted triumphs bless
ed the Confederate standard. As the fall ap
proached the current regurgitated. The lose
of tbe Alabama waa followed by the capitula
tion of the forts near Mobile, the occupation of
tbe Weldoa road, the lall of Atlanta, and the
death of Morgan.
?How long the present ?treak of ??ad in?k
will continue, iti? quite Impose^.? to conjee
ture. Heretofore the_,-etrt?ake have diminished
in duration with each succeeding year, partly
because the area of hostilities was curtailed,
and partly because we were better prepared to
resist tbe enemy. In truth-though there is
no such thing as lack, good or had, ae
every sensible person know??this world
is rnled by law, and not by cnane?.
