Persene ol tedentary habit* troabled with weak
ae ?, lassitude, palpitation of the heart, lack o
appetite, distress after eating, torpid liver, eon
stipation, Ac,deserve to enfler if tbey ?vili not
try tbe celebrated
PLANTATION BITTERS,
which are now recommended by tbe highest medi
cal authorities, and warranted to produce an im
mediate beneficial effect. They are exceedingly
agreeable, perfectly pure, and ?nnst supersede all
ether tonic* where a healthy, gentle stimulant Ig
required.
Tbey purify, strengten and invigorate.
They create a healthy appetite.
Tbey are an antidote to a change of water and
diet.
Tbey overe?me effects of dissipation and 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.
They cure Dyspepsia and Constipation,
Tbey eur? Diarrhea, Cholera, and Cholera
Morbua.
They 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.wintergTeen, sassafras, roots and herbs, all
preserved in perfectly pure St. Croix rum. For
particulars, see circulars and testimonials around
eaeb bottle.
Beware of imposter?. Eismine every bottle,
gee that it has D. S. Barnes' signature on our pri
vate U.S. Stamp over the cork, with plantation
acene, and our firm *ignatnre on a fine steel plate
.graving on Eide label. See that our bottle ia not
refilled with spurioue and deleterious stuff. We defy
any person to match the taete or character of eur
goo.*. Any person pretending to sell Plantaiitn
Bitters by the gallon or in bulk, is an impostor*
We sell only in our log cabin botti?. 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
parties re-filling our bottle*, Ac, who will succeed
In getting themselves into close quarter*. Th?
demand for Drake's Plantation Bitters from ladies,
clergymen, merchants, Ac, is perfectly incredible
Tbe simple trial of a bettle is the evi.enee we pre
sent of their worth snd superiority. They are sold
by all respectable druggist?, grocers, physicians,
hotels, saloon*, steamboat* and country atores.

came ofl se nnuoanoed oa t> unrday Bight, and
several thousand p?ople eollected ia front of
tbe City Hall during the evening to listen to
tbe addressee ?ad wltneae the fireworks, which
(the fireworks) wer? certainly excellent. A
stand bad been erected at the step? oa the eide
fronting toward? 4* street. Behind the ?tand
and sospented from pillar to pillar were two
larre Hags, and inmediitely over the epao*
occupied by the speakers wae an aroh, npon
which were inscribe? the Bamee of the several
States, Pennsylvania occupying the central
poaltioa The etaad was brilliantly illumi
nated with gas lights.
The turnout in the line of proceeeion wae not
so numerous as bad been expected by the an
terrified, as only a few of the prominent Dem
ocrat? of the city?especially ol toe central
ward??appear?d 1b the line or on the plat
form. A profusion of transparencies aid
banners, however, aerved to give quite a lively
appearance to the procession, and by stretch
ing out the line, two abreast, and enlisting a
number of boys ae banner bearers, tbe must
waa made of the limited numbers.
The Georgetown McClellan Club, With A.
Teagle as marshal, left their hall bended by a
drum and file, and one or two Bags. This
club had upon their transparencies the fol
lowing inscriptions:?"The uuterriued aro
coming Fatliei Abraham.*' m To all whom it
may concern?McClellan and Peadleton ?hall
b victorious in November." ?? free ballot or
a free tight." ?The only difficulty in the way
of an amicable adjustment is the Republican
party?Douglas." "No Union through bay

Henry Clay." ?? This war ought to be conduct
ed only for the restoration of tbe Union " -Our

nation's gratitude." "Citizen soldiers act ever

??The Union is the one oondition of peace."?
McClellan. " No peace can be permanent with
out Union."? AfeCUUan. ??I do not wish to
act in the dark."? McClellan to Halleck. ?? You
have done yonr best to sacrifice thia army."?
McClellan to Stanton. "A declaration of rad
ical views, especially npon slavery, will rap
idly deplete our present armies.' ?McClellan
tu >he President.
The First Ward club joined the Georgetown
club at the Circle, and continued che mar ?ti
down PenB&yl\aniaavenue, lreqnently cheer
ing and being ch??ered by squads of three and
four as tbey parsed different points. Dr. Joice,
Wm. H. Forrest and Jesse Mann were the mar
shal's of the First Ward club, which was also
beaded with martial music and Hags, and car
ried transparencies bearing inscriptions as fol
lows:? ??First Ward Democratic Club; ' "The
Coustitutiou a. it is aud tbe Union as it was;"
" Negro equality with white fanatice;" " Free
dom of speech, freedom of the press;" " The
provost marshals are ordered to draft without
delay?Stanton;" " To whom it may concern?
5MMMK) more;" "We shall have no draft?Rew
ard;" "Our foreign policy, the Monroe doc
trine;" ?Our home policy, America for white
nien;" "Our highest law, th?? Constitution;"
?? Peace on earth and good will toward men;"
" Tbe eagle and the erose, the symbols of lib
erty and redemption;" " The Bible, the school
bouse and the press;" "George B. McClellan,
President of the United States; Geo. H. Pen
dleton, Vice President; look out for a victory
over tyranny:" " When the wicked ruleth the
people mourn."
At tbe corner of Uth street and Pennsyl
vania Avenue, the Second and Th'rd ward
clube, the former under the marshalsliip of
J. W. Ciampi't and George A. Scott, and the
latter marshalled by ?. F. Queen, joined in.
Theee delegations were composed largely of
mere boys wbo did more cheering and made
more lui--? than all the men in the crowd. As
tbe procession passed the flag at Oth etreet ;
and tbe Union League rooms on 9th street, tbery
howled and groaned loudly. When passing
the Patent Office they were greeted with cheers
and waving of handkerchiels by some; Indivi
duals on the steps. A closer observation re
\ealed tbe fact that the parties thus cheering
them ou was composed largely of negroes, a
fact the unterrified din not seem to relish,
judging from remarks made by a number of
them- These clubs had upon their transparen
cies the fol low iu g inscriptions : ?? Th?' Candi
dates are Peace and War. Who do you vote
lor "'* " North and South, the Constitution
and Law. ' "Sheatn the Swcrd and save ihe
Union.' "In Peace people Prosper." ?* Ia

Law." "Buchanan's Administration . >-?.

"Justice is? the monument of our National Glo

?I give the women ten days to leave the city of
Atlanta, Gen'l Sherman.'' ??My personal liber
ty is dearer than life." "Hail to our Chief."
??The Democrau are coming." "Ben ten's mint
drops, versos Greenbacks." "Trial by Jury."
"No more illegal arrests." "Free press, free
speech, free elections." "Lincolns hope, the
cartridge box." ?-Shoddy's hope, greeubaeks."
"Our la? t hope, the ballot box."
The Fourth Ward club marshalled by Chas.
II. Uterroeble, and R. M. A. Fen wick, joined in
at the corner of "th and F etreets, aud the line
of march was down 7th street to Pennsylvania
avenue. Inscribed upon the transparencies of
this club were the following :?"This reminds
me of a joke, 4th Ward." "Yourself or your
substitute." "Gravee, widows, orphans, and
t x?s." Mann factures, tbe engines wheels are
clogged and mechanics shops are closed with
war." Commerce, the sum of state heads
against the sea of blood." "Agriculture, the
I low is stopped by cannon balls and the farmer
taken as a sacrifice." "Not to old Abe but to
little Mac.'' "The Conservatives are coming,
the whole country is coming." "Democrats are
coming, aud Whigs are coming." One of the
tranparencies carried by this clnb bad upon lt
a device representing Mr. Lincoln splittiu ?? the
Union, and headed "Therenowned rail-spiltter
at woik." The Union was represented by a
log, and some one (Intended for Hi, Lincoln)
was splitting It open. McClellan stands bv
timi remarks, ??The Con?? tit ut ion must and shall
be preserved;" and Mr. Lincoln is made to re
ply "I do this through military necessity.*' On
he sides ot another transparency were painted
scenes professing to depict the manner In which
the last Fourth of Jnly was celebrated by the
Democrats and Republicans. The former are
represented as having a large crowd east ol
the Capitol, and tbe latter celebration is repre
sented by a crowd of negroes amusing them?
selves in the President's grounds.
At the corner of ?th street and Pennsylvania
avenue, the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Ward
delegation, which had come up 7th street from
Maryland avenue, fell promptly Into Un?.
Tbe Fifth ward delegation, headed by a band
of music, left Langley's Hall, corner of 3d st.
east and Penn'a avenae, abont 7 o'clock, and
proceeded to the headquarters of the Sixth
ward, 7th and G street. The Fifth ward turned
out tolerably strong, numbering over one hun
dred, and had with them a howitzer which
was kept in advance and a??t? tow minntoe
was fired. Among the transparences borne in
the line were some containing the following
representations : A victorious cock crowing
over a dead one, the latter designated as Lin
coln; "th-? winning hand (4 aces) and the Iron
hand of tyranny." ? ?Nobody hurt." ? Vox
popoli, vox dte." "The people the eource of
power." "Our liberties must not be Invaded."
"I have the impression tbst I ehall not last
much longer."? Lincoln. "It is easier to pay a
small debt than a large one." ?If there is any
man out of hell who suffers more than 1 do, 1
pity him."?L in coin. "Shoddy and niggers
need not apply." "H-xsher will lead all who
believe In the doctrine of Sharp's Knies." "Re

more so " ??TheConstitution astile, the Union

"The four great Generals?General Peac*,
General Plenty, General Satisfaction and
General McClellan. -_..;-.*_- ____
At the Sixth Ward headquarters the club
wee found la line, and it took a position in tbe
rear of tbe Fifth Ward. In the neighborhood
there was quite a large number of Union men
wbo were curious to witness the turn out. The
f recession moved np 7th to E street, to 6th to
l, to 4th, and thence along Pennsylvania
avenue to Maryland avenue, and to 7th street,
/Island) where the Seventh Ward club joined
in Tne Sixth Warders had a number of
transparencies in line, some of them inscribed
as follows: ??The greatest good to the greatest

"The Georges?Washington, McClellan and

>t> a snort speech, wherein Toe onr.ounced tha
the y bad come ib?re te ratify th? nomination?
of Ale? 'lellan and Pendletoa.
Mr. Kendall sudd he was unable to moke a
speech, but he announced bimseif as devoted
?o ihe werk ot securing tbe election of the Chi
cago nominees.
Mr. Kendall wa? elected chair m in. bnt Mr.
Tom r lorence was each de Jacto, tot it wa? at
his instance ihat Mr. Wm. Flinn read a long
iis' ..i vu e president? aud -e^r?? lories, and be
alterwarde introduced Mr. J. F Ennis, who
made a speech in favor of tbe nomineea and
heartily -welcomed all who bad lately co?te
nto the Democratic fold. He concluded by
offering r?solutions expressing devotion and
attachment to the I'niou, denouncing the Ad?
ministration, and regarding Mr. Lincoln's de
claration requiring the abolishment of slavery
as revolutionary and calculated to make the
horrors of war interminable; approve tbe
principles and platform enunciated by the
Chicago Convention, and endorsing the nomi
nations of McClellan and Pendleton.
Mr. Florence put the question, aud the re?
oluttona were adopted. He then introduced a
Mr. Wro. 1). Parsons, who denounced theae
ministration and announced himself as a new
convert to democracy. Before Mr. P. had con
cluded the several ward delegations arrived,
and the transparencies were huddled together
upon the platform. After order had been re
stored, Mr Tom Florence again stepped for
ward and introduced Mr. Wade worth, of Ken
tucky, alio a new convert. He was followed
by Capt Wm. J.Geary in one of bis cbarac
terisii.? speeches, denunciatory of ??the roosters
at the other end of the Avenue," and laudatory
of Little Mac. Capt. Q. denied being a cop
perhead He had been threatened with the
?Mil Capitol, but it had no terrors for bim. as
he knew Little Mac would let bim out when
bo was elected. [Applause.] Some one re
ferred to the captain's old Know Nothing prin
ciples, w hen he asked them not to refer to bis
paetsins. He waa now In the Democratic fold.
Mr. Tom Florence then made anotaer
speech, and wa? followed by Mr. K. S. Davis.
after which the assemblage dispersed, amid a
Li e ?li-??lay of fireworks, and with cbeere.
hai ? y in the evening speakers took position?!
on the two wings of the City Hall, and ad
dressed those in that vicinity. At these stands
speecnes were delivered by Dr. Charles Allen,
il. S. Davis, J. W. Clampitt, F. A. Aiken, a
Mr Swartz, Dr. T. G. Clayton, and others.
Mr. F. A. Aiken waa chief marshal of tbe
ce le biatiou. and performed his part very cred
itably. There wa? a baud of m usi, opon the
center stand, and at intervals it discoursed
excellent music, which, with tbe fine pyrotech
nic display, no doubt attracted hundred? of
those present to witness ?hem; for by circu
lating, among tbe crowd it was evident that
only that portion iu tue immediate vicinity of
the speaker??' stands sympathized witb the pur
poses of the meeting. Thongh lt would not
b-gin to compare inn umbers and imposing die
play with the Immense Union demoustr&tioii
at the Patent Onice in ratification of the Baiti.
more nominations, yet It waa certainly a good
sued and spirited meeting, and ?.aite creditable
to its engineers, especially in view of the draw
backs ihey experienced in tbe way of a failure
of prominent citizens supposed to be of t?e.r
way of thiuking to co-operate with them, at
least publicly.
It will be noticed ?also that none of tbe prom
inent speakers announced were present, aad
tbat tbe gathering was obliged to content iUeU
with tbe somewhat stereotyp?* utterance of the
Parker's Hall stock company, including com
edian Geary and hie trained ??roosters.'*
???p?? Wart? Draft Mbbtibo.?Between
two and three hundred citizens of tbe Third
Ward assembled at Temperance Hall, on Sat
urday night, to take further action in relieving
the ward from the draft. Mr. N. D Larner
presided, while Mr. h F. McKean acted as
Secretary.
L'pon calling the meeting to order, the Chair
stated that tbe Bacon exemption clnb wae hold
ing a meeting up stairs, and as it was desirable
to bear what action they took in relation to ai
lowing members to withdraw their money, the
hi st bufine.-? in order would be the reception
of contributions and reports of committees.
Mr. J. H.Blake here announced tbat while
standing in fro. t of the hall dnriug the evening,
be was approached by a colored man, who
said, tbat although, he was a bard working:
man and not liable to the draft, irom the fact
ot being over age, be desired to contribute So
His name is Robert K. Turner, (said Mr. B.) a
citizen of tbe Third Ward. At the request of
the colored man the speaker handed to tbe
?litui man of the meeting S5.
The Cbair (Mr. Larner) remarked tbat this
act was certami ? worthy of imitation, and ?ng.
geBled that tbe collectors had better call upon
tbe colored resident or the ward, as many ef
them would no doubt contribute.
The Secretary read a letter from a eobetitate
broker at Alexandria, who offered to furnxsb
eight substitutes at Bjt*sj0 each.
The Che ir remai ked that several substitute
brokers had called to see him, and offered to
fnrnish substitutes, which showed that tbe
men were to be obtained.
Tbe Cbair here announced tbat the Bacon
Exemption Club, or speculating club? bad
voted against a<lowing it? member? to with
draw their money. Tbe citizen? of tbe Third
Ward had $11,MO in that club, and a proposi
tion had been made to the club by the citisene
to release all claims if the club would vote tbe
ward fond S5,0U0.
Mr. J. s. Hollingshead thought tbe ward
could get through without the 93,000, bat If
not, it could be replevied.
Mr. T. H. Dor ian waa called apon to make a
statement ae to what traneptred in tbe meeting
of tbe Bacon Club np stairs. Mr. Dorian said
be went to the meeting with tbe determination
to withdraw his mone ? if they would let him.
and if net, he did not Intend to ?ay anything
bnt while there some gentleman made some
pointed remarks in relation to those who de
sired to withdraw, ile , Mr. D ) ait-mpteo, to
defend thes-e parties, and got a ?little bot,"
when the meeting broke np In a row.
Mr. George Man? said tbat h? understood tbe
citizen? ot the Third Ward bad SI 1,<J00 in tbe
club, bnt wonld relinquish their claim? for
?*>,0ti0. He went to the meeting to make the
statement, bnt wa? booted down, and was glad
to make his escape? _? _
Tbe treasurer of tbe ward fand (Mr. Job
Annusi bere reported that he bad npon nie
books and caah in hand ?5,750. [Note.?Before
the cloee of the meeting this Bam was swollen
to ?6,500 by the returns of the collectors and
the amounts subscribed by parties in tbe
room ?Refi, j
The Chair salii there had been some miscal
culation heretofore, and they bad not done ae
well ae expected. He therefore suggested that
the subscriptions be increased 50 per cent
Many of tbe gentlemen present then oame
forward and increased their subscription?; and
the Chair appointed twenty-four additional
collectors to obtain contribution? In any por
tion of tbe ward tbat they conld do bo.
The Cbair, in reply to a question, as to when
tbe draft wonld take place in tbe Third Ward-,
replied tbat it waa likely tbe ward would be
drawn within three days.
Mr. E. R. McKean said tbat many of the cit
izens of tbe ward bad not been ca l Jed upon, bnt
it was almost impossible to collect Um seoee?
sfiry amount in so short a time? It the wealthy
men (remarked the ape?ker) would advance
the money, t ?e substitutes conld be procured
and the money returned a? soon aa collected.
Mr. Steele suggested that probably the money
could b? obtained from Mr. Fahneetock, a?
that gentleman bad advanced a large earn to
Mr. John H. Semme?, to pay bounties to vol
unteer?.
Mr. ?. D. Larner could not let the statement
ef Mr. Steele go out, a? that gentleman ?sras ??of
bis egg?" entirely. The money alluded to bad
buen borrowed Irom the bank? by the Corpora
tion. He made thi? eaplanation in inst?oe to
other parties. _. ??_ .
Several plane were then adopted to ra?**
?JM.COO, none of which euc<3eededt however.
Finally, Mr. J. S. HoHingsbeadmov?d? tbe
appointment of a finance committee of tbree,
wrbicb wa. agreed t?aaci?i,a Chair?PPOlrited
Messrs. Edmons-on, Shs-rrett?*, and Pratber.
The treasurer and tbe finance committee
were then instructed to go ont and endeavor to
borrow tbe money.
Tbey accordingly retired, and after an ab
eer.ee of abont half an bonr returned, aad
reportad, through tbe treasurer. (Mr. Angus,)
that tbey bad called npon several gentlemen,
but they were ont ot fonds.
Mr. Angus said that tbe only thing tb.it
conld be done was to go to work and colie? tbe
money.
The meeting adjonrned natii 10 o'clock Mon
day morning.
