AMONG THE SOLDIERS!
By the direction of the Culportage Board, at
Darlington, the work of supplying the South
Carolina soldiers with the New Testament and
religious reading, was begun first by us in South
PIOUS PASTORS ENGAGED AS COLPOIt
A number of devoted Pastors of the State are
laboring earnestly and eflfiienty as Colporters of
the Board-some of them in Virginia and some
of them on the South Carolina coast.
ENCOURAGEMENTS TO LABOR ON.
The cheering intelligence is reaching us con
stantly that the soldiers receive with gratitude
the New Testament and Tracts given them. They
welcome all religious instructions with, in many
instances, the gushing tear and quivering lip.
NEW TESTAMENTS AND TRACTS DIS.
The operations of the Board, to the 1st Februa
ry, tire 11,;,011 New Testaments and one million
seven hundred thousand pages Tracts.
TILE SOLDIERS READ.
They not only accept the New Testament and
Tracts given then, but they read them, in not a
few instances, pranycrfully and savingly.
SOME HAVE BEEN CONVERTED.
Through the simple instrumentulity -a little
Tract, the truths of " God's word," presented to
them by the Colporter, the earnest prayer and the
pious counsel of such, a number have turned to
God, and are now rejoicing in Him.
THE SICK SOLDIER.
Those who have visited the sick soldier, as we
have in the various Hospitals in and about Char
lestorn, know with what readiness and- thaukful
ness, prayer and religious instructions are re
ceived; how gladly they receive the New Testa
CHRISTIAN FRIENDS OF OUR SOLDIERS,
Thousands of the patriotic sons of our own and
other States, who are sacrificing all for our com
mon country, have no Bible to point them to God
and to "light up a dying bed." They ire willing
to read it-they ask for it. Shall they be denied?
Our Chaplain writes: "I do not believe lifty teen
in the regiment have brought Testaments with
WE APPEAL TO EVERY CHRISTIAN MAN.
We circulate tin Tract or Book which any Chris
tian man would object to, whether he be Ja'esli5
te, ian, laafthdint, Ep4icopaulia n, L utheran, or Miep
tit. We, therefore, appeal to all Christians
throughout the city and country to aid us in this
common work. We pledge ourselves to meet the
spiritual wants of our soldiers to the full extent
of the tbeans placed nt our ciuwand.
SOUTH CAROLINA SOLDIERS IN VIRGINIA.
South Carolina regiments in Virginia share
proportionally in all the operations of this Board
-in Colporters, New Testaments and Tracts.
EVERY SOLDIER ON THE SOIL OF SOUTH
Many of the sons of North Carolina, Georgia,
Tennessee, and other States, are upon the coast of
South Carolina. Shall we not minister to their
spiritual wants ?
'MANUSCRIPTS FOR FOUR-PAGE TRACTS
The Board desire to publish a number of " four
page Tracts," adapted to the wants of the soldier,
and hereby solicit such manuscripts. Tlwenc tinmtn.
scripts must be free from dcwnnnationial bun.
CONTRIBUTIONS MAY BE DIRECTED.
Those who contribute to this work may specify,
if this is desired, in what regiment or company
such funds shall be expended. All contributions
to this work will be acknowledged in the public
LARGE AND SMALL AMOUNTS.
Let it be remembered that $130 will buy one
thousand New Testaments, and thirteen cent~ will
bity a single copy. Each copy will supply one

States having troops in S ,.uth . Carolina, real the

jIT is castcniary now-a-days for the proprietors
an dd prop~el lers of patent medicines to array
before the public eye in the most glowing colors,
necounts of miraculous cures, and at the same
time complain of the poverty of the English lan
gunge as; being inadequate to convey ideas that
would do justice to their medical preparations.
Now the proprietor of the above-named prepara
tion don't intend to pursue any such course, but
will be content to say, candidly, to the people,
what his preparation has done andi will do. The
DYSPEPTIC R EMEDY needs no such propping
up by any such euniningly devised fables. BLISS'
DYSPEPTIC REMEDY is the only reliable pre
pairation now before thet peoIde for ALL hIS
EASES OF THlE STOMACII, anid those other
diseases that have their origin in disense of that
organ. It has again and again cured when all
other prep~arntions have failed. Its nmerits have
been discussed by physicians in counsel. It has
often been lire-judged andl thrown aside by phy
sicinins and consigned to the tomb of quack hum
bogs, and afterw ards restored to more congenial
clime on terra firma, to be admuinistered to thc.,r
worn-siut niid exhausted patients, and with the
MOST PERFECT SUCCESS. It has been tested
and recommendedjby the most eminent physicians
of the country, and one and all who have thor
oughly tested it in good faith, are unanimous in
its praise. It will CURE THE WORST FORMS of
Liver Disease, Constipation,
AND A GREAT MANY OTHER DISEASE
having their origin in Disease of the Stomach
For the above mentioned diseases, it is a sov
ereign remedy, and will not fail in effecting a
cure if the patient is not too penurious to perse
vere in the taking of the Remedy. If one pack
age don't euro you, try another, and still another,
and rest assured it will not fail in accomiplishing
all that is promised. And another thing you
mony rest assured of, that you cannot take it long
without seeing and feeling that it has already be
gun to benefa6 you ; and if sh continue taking it
regularly, andl follow out all the directions--and
you WILL SOON BE WELL AGAIN.
