I do this the mors readily in regard to Hoofland's
German Bitters, prepared by Dr. O. M. Jackson, of
this city, because I was prejudiced against them for
many jears, under the Impression that they were
ehlsfly an alcoholic mixture. T am indebted to my
Mend Robert 8hoemaker, Esq., for the removal of
this prejudice by proper tests and for encourage
ment to try them, when suffering from great and
long continued'debility. The use of three bottles
of these Bitters, at the beginning of the present
jrear, was followed by evident relief, and lostoratlon
to a degree of bodily and mental vigor which I had
Dot felt for six months before and had almost de?

IMPORTANT 10 SOLDIERS!
Those havinCT Friends in the Army 1
We call the attention of all having relations or
friends in the army to the/act that "Hoofland's Ger
man Bitters" will cure nine-tenths of the diseases
Induced by exposure and privations incident to camp
life. In the lists, published almost' daily In the
newspapers, on the arrival of the sick, it will be
noticed that a very large proportion are suffering
from debility. Every case of that kind can be
readily cured by Hoofland's German Bitters. Dis
eases resulting from disorders of the digestive organs
are speedily removed. We have no hesitation in
statins that if th<*l Bitters were freely used among
our soldiers, hundreds of lives might be saved that
otherwise would be lost
We call particular attention to the following re
markable and well authenticated cure of one of the
nation's heroes, whose life, to use his own language,
"has been saved by the Bitters."

Is no mistake iu this. It is vouched for by numbers
of my comrade^ some of whose names are appended,
and who were cognisant of all the circumstances of
my case. I am, and have been for the last four
years, a member of Sherman's celebrated battery,
and under the immediate command of Captain B. B.

arduous duties, I was iat&cked in November last
with Inflammation of thelungs,and was for seventy
two dsysih the hospital. This was followed by great
debility, heightened by an attack of dysentery. I
Was then removed from ,ths White House,' and sent
to this city on board the **Btats> of Itaine," from
which T tended on the 38 th of Jon?. Since that time
I l.ave been about as low a? any one could be and
still retain a spark of .vitality. For a week or marc
I was scarcely ahU to swallow anything, and If I4id

Saldba, Tsui, Dec. 4tb, 1863.
* * * We left Berwick, La., on the
morning of th? 14th'ait., and got aboard
the cars at Brashear Oil/ about noon and
arrived in Algiers a'little after sun down.
We stayed in Algiers until the morning
of the lGtb, and got on board the steam
ship "Crescent," of New York, and about
sun down left Algiets (whieb is on tbe op
posite side ot ths rivet from New Orleans)
Tor the Gulf of Mexico, We glided down
the river and sens'j t)me In: tbe night drop
ped anchor within a mile or two of tbe
Quit. We anchored' until day light so
that we might have light to cross (be bar
it tbe month of tbe.river. On tbe morn
ing ot the 17tb we moved on, and a little
titer sunrise we were away out on the
'briny deep," and witnessed that grand
ipectacle, a sunrisq at sea. We were soon
>ut of sight of eveqrthlng save water, our
reasels and tbe seagulls that fly and croak
ifter vessels. We were destined not to
lave a pleasant time long. About dark
jlack beavy cloujifl began to rise and
iho'rfly after niueo'clo'ck tbe wind com
nenced.blowing and the rain fell. Soon
re had a storm of great violence and tbe
ingrv waves ran fountain high, and for
wo days and three'nigbta we were tossed
in the b'oaonx of. the ana.'' I jean give yon
>qt a faint idea qt }he scene. ^t times we
ronld be tbrowu/rom one side of tbesbip
o (he other, so t^at we bad to bold on to
omrtbiaifcatatwnKry to keep fromi being
tart>wn off by-Ithft waves. Every now'and
hen a wave wou\S -trtrlke hft' otr one side
ind in an instant another wave, iwould
trike her on tbe other side, almost careen
ng her. Then she would moont up on
. wave Qntil it reaHy seemed as ,if ber
oasts would fall backwards. Sbe would
land poised for a few seconds,then plunge
lown into tbe dark billows, and ere ber
iow could rise another wave would dash
iver her deck, bnrying her completely un
Lemeath the water. Tbe boys were jnst
is wet as if tbey had been in tbe Quit.?
)ne of opr men was dasbed overboard by
. wave that rolled over the ebip, carrying
lim.iu a moment inio eternity. After a
ong time we made Point Isabell, at the
nouth ot the Bio Qhuide, the line between
'exaaand Mexico. We bad been .within f
5 miles of it for two days, but the sea was
oo rough to venture in.. We anchored in
be harbor about dark Friday evening.?
)n Saturday, tbe 21st, we were ordered up
he coast to S(. Joseph's Island, some 90
r 100 miles. We anchored there alter'
lark, and on Sunday, the 22d, a boat was
entto the shipto get the soldiers off and
ighten the ship so that she could cross
be bar at the point of tbe island into the
iay. It is probable that yon bave read
ibout this and the little Gght we had at the
tointoftbe island. We stayed on the
eland uotil Monday noon, then started and
narched 14 mites up tbe cpast to a bayou.
)ur landing on tbe islabd wss a novel
igbt, and would have been a good thing
or Harper's Weekly or Frank Leslie's pa
ler. The water Was so shallow that tbe
'essels could not get close to shore, and
he males and horses en the ship ((hose
hat lived through tbe passage) were
lumped out into tbe waterand made to
wim to sbore/while all the soldiers had to
rade to land.'; The boat we were; ip got
oat buv. a is |
ine charger tbat.he woulduothave taken
I thousand dollars for, was killed: on the |
>ass?git by tossing of the ship. It was
hocking lo see tbe poor dumb brutes so
.rippledand cut up as to be hardly able to
ralk. We-remalaed at tbebaydaontll the

has been carried ont with comparative impu

ists may well pause before they nibble at
eligible investments in real estate situated
far in the interior. That interior has been |
fearfully narrowed by the federal march
through Tennessee, and owing to the defi

sqnadrona of horse threaten to be as uni

his squadrons of gunboats were some
months since. The advantages gained at
Ohancellorsville and Ghickamauga have
ba I heavy counterpoises. The one victory
led to the fall of JackBon and the deposi

by those who think and feel aright, as a
precious season to prepare for trying an
other fall with our potent adversity.
Meanwhile the financial ohaos is becom
ing wilder and wilder. Hoarders keep a
more resolute grasp than ever on the
necessaries of lire. Non producers, who
are at the same time non-speculators, are
suffering more and more. What was once
competence has become poverty, poverty
has become penury, penury is lasping into
pauperism. Any mechanical occupation
is more profitable than the most intellect, i
nal profession ; the most accomplished
scholars in the confederacy would be glad
to barter their servioes for food and rai i
ment; and in the complete upturning ot
our social relations, the only happy people i
are those who have black hearts or black
skins. The cry ot scarcity resounds
through the land, raised by the producers i
in their greed for gain, re-echoed by the i
consumers In their premature 'dread of ,
starvation and nakedness. We are all in
the dark, and men are moro or. leas, cow- i
ards in the dark. We do not know what ?
our resources are?and no one can tell us
whether we shall have a pound of beef to
eat at the end of 1864, or a square inch of
leather to patch the last Bboe iu the con
federacy. Unreasoning confidence has been
succeeded by depression as unreasoning,
and the Yankees are congratulating them
selves on the result, which they hawk
about as the ??beginning of the en1."
Theologians will tell us that the disas
ters of the closing year are the punishment
of our sins. This is true enough; but a
cheap penitence will not save us from the i
evil consequences. There is uo forgive- i
ness for political Bins, and the results will t
as certainly follow as if there bad been no ,
repentance. As all sins are, ia a higher
seme, intellectual blander), we mast strain c
every fibre o( the brain and every sinew of
the will if we wish to repair the mischief a
which our folly and our corruption have ?
wrought. The universal recognition of
this imperative duly is a more certain
earnest of our success than the high spirits
of our men in the field, or the indomitable
patriotism of our women at home, from
which newspaper correspondents derive so
much comfort. The incompetence and un .
faithfulness of government officials have i
bad so much to do with the present sad
state of affairs, bnt the responsibility does
not end there, the guilt does not rest there -
alone. Every man who has suffered him- '
sell to be tainted with the scab of specula^
tion has done something to injure the cred
it of Confederate securities; every man
who has withheld any necessary of life has
done his worst to rain the country ; every 1
one, man or woman, who has yielded to the
solicitations of vanity or appetite, and re
filled to snhmtt to any prtvatiori, however
slight,' which 'an' expenditure, however ,
great, conld prevent, has contributed to the J
general demoralisation. It may be said
that, with the present plethora of psper
money, such virtue as we demand is not to
be expected of any people made up of '
merely haman beings. But some such
virtue is necessary for any people whoae
duty it has become to wage soeb a contest
as ouro ; and if the virtue is not sponta
neous, It must be engrafted by the painfol
process through which we are now pass'
ing. We oanoot go through this fiery
furnace without lbs smell of fire on our
nrnienta. We can no more avoid the loss
of property, than we can the shedding of
^Tfrne is no family la th'e confederacy
that has not to monrn the fall of some
membef or some conaectlon, and there is
no family in tbe confederacy which oagbt
to expect "to escape seatbless in estate.?
The'attempt is as useless, Inmost cases, as
it if ignoble in all. A few, and bnt few,
tn comparison with the whole number, may
come out ot the war richer than when they
went in; bnt even they must make up thsir
minds to sacrifice a part, and a large part,
in order to preserve tbe whole. The say
ing ofthe stoic philosopher, "Yon can't
have something tor nothing," though it
sounds like a . truism, in fact, conveys a
moral Uesoin of great significance. Men
most pay'. for privileges. If .lhey do not
pay voluntarily their, neighbors will make
them pay, ud that heavily. Had those
who employed: substitutes to take their
place* in the army refrained, aa a class,
from speculation end extortloo, tbey would:
not now be lamenting the prospect of a
speedy furtherance to the camp of instruc
tion. However jakt their canse, tbe man
ner in which too many Of them abased the

economy the straitening of onr resource
may reqnire we shall learn to exerciie ?
We contd only wish that Congress Was no
la inch a feverish mood, and that the gov
ernment would do something towards thi
establishment 'of a statistical bureau, 01
some other agency, by which we could ap<
proximately ascertain what we have to
contribute, and to what extent we mnsl
busband our resources. Wise, cool, de
cided, prompt action would put us in good
eonditlon for the spring campaign of 1864,
and the olose of next year would furnish a
more agreeable retrospect thau the anntu
mirabilu of blunders which we now con
sign to the dead past.

previous to oar unhappy difficulties were found In
most Southern hornet, was owing to the extract oI
Calisaya Bark which It contained as one of Its prin
cipal ingredient*?"In confirmation of thla, we hare
heard one of onr most distinguished phyeiclana re

dietetic or atmospheric csuaes, he invariably relieved
himself by Plantation Bittere. Now that these Bit*

negotiations with Dr. Drake, through a secret ageut,
but with what truth we do not know.*' ? ?" *
We are exceedingly obliged to the Richmond
