garding the clandestine judiciary amendment.
Wood objected, unless the Democrats were
allowed a reply.
The bill removing political disabilities was
resumed. Bingham amended-he relieves
from the disabilities by both the constitution
?nd the laws. An amendment inserting Gil
mer's name was withdrawn. Amendments
adding other names to the original list were
rejected. Miller said that Longstreet's name
should be omitted. Bingham said "Oh, no."
A dozen suggestions were offered. Bingham
begged them not to load the bill. W. W. Hol?
den would be the next Governor of North Caro?
lina, and could not act unless the bill was pass?
ed. Logan questioned Governor Orr's evi?
dence of loyalty. Bingham said that Orr had
made an encouraging speech to the South Caro?
lina Convention. Logan wanted to know about
Orr'6 Philadelphia speech. Bingham declined
going into particulars, but thought who had
influence enough to beat Wade Hamp?
ton ought to be encouraged to use
that influence in favor of the Reconstruction
laws. Scbenck propceed a month's postpone?
ment to obtain facts. Boutwell favored taking
the responsibility. Logan wanted fruits meet

Sickles said of Orr, adding that Orr's course
at Philadelphia was no worse than Raymond's,
and Raymond was afterwards admitted to the
Radical caucus. Logan denounced Governor
Brown, of Georgia. Kelly eaid that Brown
worked gloriously and ought to be forgiven.

The Reconstruction Conventions.
RALEIGH, March 17.-The constitutional con?
vention adjourned to-day. The closing scenes
last night and to-day were very dis?recbtable.
After the ceremony of signing the constitution
was gone through with, the Conservatives,
having refused io sign it, retired from the hail.
The capitol bell was ordered .to be nmg in
honer of the event, the floor was cleared, and
the black and white Radicals joined hands,
forming . a circle, and commenced a port of
I cornfield dance, singing such songs as "Old
John Erown'a 6oul is marching on,'' "Hang
Jeff. Davis on a sour apple tree.-' "While this lat?
ter song was being sung, a young rebel looking
on shouted, "Thre echeers for Jeff. Davie,"
which were given with a will by a few in the* lob?
by and galleries. This occasioned a momentary
jar, but the convention hilarity went on till it was
exhausted. To-day, after passing several un?
important ordinances, ts the hour of adjourn?
ment had not arrived, outsiders were called on
for a speech. Among them was one General
Littlefield, connected with the Wall-street
Brokers of Kew York, and who, it is under?
stood, had quite a hand in manipulating the
financial schemes of the convention. General
Littlefield among others made quite a glorifica?
tion speech to the convention, and closed by
calling on the body to aid bim in singing "Old
John Brown's soul is marching home," which
was done. Other speeches and songs were
given of the eame character, and the ex?
hibition closed at twelve o'clock, subject to the
call of the President.
RICHMOND, March 17.-In the convention the
committee reported an ordinance to levy a
special Ux of two cents in the hundred dollars

tive to city and county judges it was resolved
by a vote of forty-two to thirty to make both

TTFTV-TTTTTiTi AND LAST DAY.
The CONTENTION Has ADJOTTBSED! In the
affecting language of Artemus Ward, "Adoo
adoo !" lu a blaze of Republican glory, amid
the waving of hate, the tears of the candi?
dates, the cheers of hoi polloi, and to the love?
ly melody of "John Brown's eouTs a marchin'
on," at precisely high noon yesterday, the Re?
publican Reconstruction Constitutional Con?
vention of Scnth Carolina bade its fond fare?
well to mundane scenes and glided, spectre
like, into the great oblivion of the Past. Those
who have played their brief parts on the stage
will linger for awhile in the halo they have
created, but the mass is now dissolved, and its
atoms will sink once more to their resting
place am:d the "dust of ages." The hall
of the old Club House will now rest awhile
in peace. The nightmare among its sun?
ny memories bas faded away, and if it had
a voice, it too would doubtless be heard utter?
ing its plaintive "adoo-adoo." "Adoo" to
Eyas, with his interminable sentences, which
reminded one of Webster's Dictionary suffer?
ing from a severe attack of delirium tremens.
"Adoo" to 8imeon Corley, with his patent ma?
chine for grinding out resolutions and written
speeches. "Adoo" to Leslie and his ear
tickling, stomach-moving fun; to the stento?
rian bass of Whittemore, the sharp treble of
Moses, the baritone of Wright, and the stac?
cato movements of DeLarge. "Adoo" to Cain,
with his dreams of land; to Rutland, with his
brittling law points, and Cardoza, with his
compulsory process for mi6cegenating the two
races in the public sohools. "Adoo," in short,
to everything and everybody, and especially to
eleven dollars a day, wherewith the delegates
for two blessed months lived, moved, had their
being and bought good clothes.
The convention assembled at the usual hour.
The President read the following extract from
a letter received "from a distinguished gentle?
man in Washington," to whom parts of the
the constitution had been from time to time
transmitted as they were adopted :
"I have shown your constitution and bill of
rights to many of the leading Republicans,
who pronounce them eminently fit for the cor?
ner-stone of the new temple of liberty that
you are engaged in erecting. The conven?
tion bas indeed done square work." (Ap?
On motion of B. By as (colored), the fol?
lowing resolution was unanimously adopted :
In order that this convention may sustain
its dignity against all charges made against ita
Resolved, That the President of this coaven
tion do appoint a committee of three to inves?
tigate the charge or charges made against one
Dogac, a member ot this body, which charges
appeared in the public journals of this city this
Resolved, That the committee be instructed
to make their report within one hour.
The President appointed B. Byos, W. H. W.
Gray, and M. F. Becker as the committee.
Mr. D. H. Chamberlain called up the pream?
ble and resolutions relating to the endorsement ;
bv the State of the bonds of the Blue Ridge
Railroad, but gave way to Mr. B. F. Whitte?
more ior the introduction of a r?solution.
Owing to the rush of business and the rapid |
approach ol the hour of final adjournment, the \
subject was not again reached, but we learn !
that every member of the convention save two
pledged himself to the support of the mea?
sure, when approached for the purpose of Dr.
N.J. Newell and other friends of the road.
Mr. B. F. Whittemore offered the following <
resolutions, which were unanimously adopted
with great cheering :
Resolved, That the thanks of the convention
are due to Bro vet Major-General ?. R. 8. Can
bv, commanding Second Military District, and
ail officers in this department who have co- ,
operated with this body in the framing of the ?
constitution under the provisions of the Re- :
construction acts of Congress for the future ,
government of South Carolina.
Resolved, That this convention will ever re
member with gratitude the harmonious rela?
tions which have existed between the military
authorities, under the command of General
Canby, and its members, and that, in this ex?
pression of the appreciation of such a pleasant '
fact, we recognize how feeble words are to
convey the true sentiment of the heart.
Resolved, That a certified copy of these reso?
lutions be furnished by the President of this
convention to Brevet Major-General E. R. S.
Canby, commanding Second Military District.
On motion of E. W. M. Mackey, thesergeant
at-arms was continued in office for five days to
adjust the unsettled accounts of the conven?
On motion of R. C. DeLarge, the thanks of
the convention were tendered to "the noble
mmded peopie of the North who have aided
the cante of education in South Carolina,*'
and assisted the people in the establishment of
Mr. B. F. Whitemore offered the following,
which was also adopted:
Resolved, That the thanks of this convention
are due to the city government of Charleston
fer the abie and efficient police force placed
under charge of the President of this conven?
Resolved, That a certified copy of the fore?
going resolution be sent to the Mayor of this
city by the President of the convention.
L. S. Langley moved that the convention do
not adjourn sine die until the Committee on
Review and Consolidation have completed their
The motion was not agreed to.
The President stated that the convention
having paesed a resolution specifying the time
to adjourn, any other resolution,* except to re?
scind its action would be out of order.
The President stated that he held in his band
an mstrument consisting of fifteen articles and
two hundred and thirteen sections, each of
which had been read three times and passed
by tbe convention. They have from time to
time been reviewed by the house and properly
arranged, and now purport to be tue Constitu?
tion of the State of South Carolina. The ques?
tion before the convention is whether, having
passed these sections, after three several read?
ings., they will be adopted by the convention
as a whole. Shall this constitution be adopt?
R. C. DeLarge-I do not desire to vote on
that instrument as a whole until it has been
determined by the solicitor and the appropri?
ate committee that its several sections do not
conflict with each other, and that the consti?
tution is in a proper shape to be submitted to
the people. ?
G. "ff. S. Dill wanted to vote now. He waB
satisfied with the work, and didn't wish to
hear any more argument on the subject.
F. L. "Cardoza moved to rescind the resolu?
tion whereby the convention agreed to adjourn
at 12 M., and adjourn at 6 P. M.
The President stated that he would be reluct?
ant to interfere with the expressed wish of the
convention, but if such a resolution was adopt?
ed, it would be the first time in the history of
Sarhamentary proceedings that such a thing
ad been done. Ii the motion should prevail;
it would do injustice to those who were'absent;',
and it would excite grave doubts as to the le?
gality or constitutionality of any action which
the convention might take after 12 o'clock M.
It would be strange, indeed, if within three
quarters of an hour before the convention has
agreed to adjourn sine die, the members of the
body ehould show themselves so utterly unfa?
miliar with parliamentary law and practice, so
much unacquainted with the condition of their
busmesB as to demand an extension of the
session. The work of the convention has al?
ready been accomplished, and if there be any
remaining labors to be performed by the Com?
mittee on Revision and Consolidation, the chair
will detain that committee for the purpose.
B. F. Randolph-I desire to ask whether, if
the convention has not completed its work, it
would be consistent for U6 to adjourn, I claim
that we haye not finished our labors and ought
not to adjourn.
J. J. Wright-I wish to ask ir it is not in
von power to call this convention together
after 12 o'clock to-day, for the resumption of
The President-Certainly it is.
[Much :-onfusion in the hall.]
J. J. Wright- Then I hope gentlemen will
R. C. DeLarge-Whatever may be the senti?
ments of others cn this subject, I deem it
best to have this matter fixed definitely, and
therefore offer the following resolution :
Reet ced, That the President of the con?
vection is hereby directed to call this con
vention to assemble at 3 o'clock this al
The President-The chair is in a very
agreeable position; but th? convention willi
ceive that under its own nile and action, he
hut one way in which to proceed, and thal
(looking at his watch), when the hour o?
o'clock arrives to declare tie convention adj ot
ed sine die. If the President is now empowe
by resolution to again convene the body, be
do so; but it must be apparent that the c
way in which it can be done is to send a BI
mons to every member of the conventi
some of whom have already left the city
their homes. It would not be just, fair, le
or constitutional to summon one portion i
not the other, and the time required for t
proceeding can be easily determined.
E. W. M. Mackey-I would like to kn
whether the subject matter before the hot
is not the adoption of the constitution a.
E. W. SI. Mackey-Then I hope that mot:
will prevail, for I cannot, for the life of me, i
any necessity or waiting npon the Commit:
on'Revision and Consolidation. We have
ready acted as a committee of the whole
this subject. The constitution bas b:-en ca:
fully revised and its several parts adjust?
ana there is no nee whatever in our ri ski
the chances of being declared to bave unce
stitntionaJJy acted by delaying the adjoni
ment sine die % single hoar. I therefore mo
the previous question.
The call for the previous question was i
sustained by a vote on division of the house
forty-three yeas and forty-five noes.
TYery great confusion.]
B. F. Randolph-I now move that the co
vention rescind the resolution by which
?greed to adjourn at 12 o'clock to-day.
The President-If the convention pursu
this course, and, by a system of parliamenta
tactics, to protract proceedings, the conetit
rion is not adopted as a whole by twel

himself, when that hour arrives hewilladjoui

not being adopted he will be compelled

occasion to appeal to the bouse, and I auMrx

its labors by this unnecessary action. Time

o'clock ibis body will have no legal en'steno
B. F. Randolph-I would not have made U
motion bad you not, a few minutes ago, state
that it would be in order to make such
The President-Many things are in ord?
which are unconstitutional. I believe that tb
result of this motion, if decided affirmatively
would be illegal, and it would malte this coi
vention an illegal body.
B. F. Randolph-I do it with the best mc
tives in the world.
The President-I believe I shall be sustainei
by any parliamentary lawyer that when th
house has agreed to adjourn at a certain pe
nod, and when that period arrives, it is not ii
the power of the house to change its decree
Some of the members have retired; they can
not form a portion of the prolonged sessioi
without much delay, and may reasonably pro
test against its subsequent action. In the bes
light, therefore, in which tile subject can bi
examined, such a course would place the con
vention in a doubtful position. At present yoi
are a body whose legality ana constitutionality
cannot be questioned, and it is my fervent wist
that you shall so remain to the end.
Several voices-I move that the question hi
The question was decided in the affirmative
with a tumultuous shout, amid which the sharp
voice of Langley lifted itself above the wave ol
broken sound, crying out: ' ".lot ready, Mr.
President; I ajn't ready. I want my vote re?

The question recurred on the adoption of
the constitution as a whole.

Profound silence, amid which the vote waa
taken and announced in the affirmative with?
out diesent, amid enthusiastic applause.
The President (as soon as order was restor?
ed)-I now announce that this instrument,
containing fifteen articles and two hundred
and thirteen sections, has been duly read three
times and adopted by this convention as the
organic law and constitution of the State, and
is now subject to the ratification of the people
of South Carolina; and may God in His infinite
wisdom grant that it may work good to our
The excitement of the convention at this
juncture broke through all bounds. They
cheered, hollered, cried, waved their handker?
chiefs and threw np their hate; Leslie seized
tbe arm of a member and revolved it in a man?
ner that threatened dislocation; and the big
delegation of outside colored spectators chim?
ed in with a vociferousness that wae not out?
done by those within tbe bar.
As soon as order was restored, on motion of
T. J. Roberteon, T. J. Coghlan, of Sumter,
was called to the chair, when Mr. Robertson
offered the following resolution, which was
Besomed, That for the very able and impar?
tial discharge of the responsible and arduous
duties gratuitously performed while presiding
over the deliberations of this body, and for the
uniform kindness and forbearance shown at ail
times towards all of its members, the thanks
of ti:is convention be tendered to Hon. A. G.
Mackey, our President.
The President responded as follows:
Gentlemen of the Contention: After an ardu?
ous labor of two months, we are, at last, about
to part, and the time bas arrived which ad?
monishes us that, having accomplished to the
best of our abilities the duty which bad been
imposed upon us by our constituents, nothing
is left for us to do but affectionately to bid each
I look back, as I trust you all do, with much
self-gratulation upon the hours that we have
spent together. There are with us no unplea?
sant reminiscences of those acrimonious bick?
erings which, in all deliberative assemblies, are
too often incidental to the excitement of de?
bate and the attrition of antagonistic minds.
Engaged in the consideration of topics of the
highest importance, differences of opinion
have necessarily existed; but those differences,
although always boldly expressed and sturdily
maintained, have never been characterized
by the petulance of personal retort. Indeed, I
am sure that the history of parliamentary bodies
has never presented a more uninterrupted ex?
ample of the capacity of men to differ widely
on certain subjects, and yet with friendly for?
bearance to agree to differ. The members of
this convention, on all occasions where there
has not been unanimity, may have been oppo?
nents in opinion, but have always been friends
For myself, I do not know that I have ever
Baid one word to wound the feelings of a dele?
gate. If I bave done so, the fault has been
unintentional, and has escaped my recollec?
tion. I am sure that no word has been utter?
ed by any one of the members to me, which
the most exacting man would have wished un?
said. To me, as their presiding officer, the
delegates of this convention have ever been
most kind, considerate and respectful, and for
these demonstrations of vour good will I am
moit profoundly grateful. *
In my own couiBe I have endeavored to be
thoroughly impartial. Whatever have been
my private opinions on any of the 6ubiecte
under deliberation, I have sought, and Inope
successfully, to forget them while I controlled
debate, and have tried to rule on every ques?
tion, not as my predilections might have led
me, but as the law of parliament and the rules
of the house required. And I feel proud as
well as grateful that the house has evinced its
confidence in my honesty as a presiding officer
in thie, that no "decision I have made has ever
The work which we were sent here to do was
most momentous to the commonwealth which
we represent, and the members ol this conven?
tion are, I think, worthy of much commenda?
tion for tbe improvements they h.we made in
the organic law, when their Lhors are compar?
ed with those of their predecessors. We here
present to our constituents a constitution in
which, for the first time in the political histo?
ry of this State, the great doctrine cf manhood
suffrage is distinctly recognized, and all the
rights are secured to every citizen to which
nature and nature's God have entitled him.
Here have we stricken every vestige of serf?
dom from our institutions, and that, too, in so
emphatic and unambiguous a way, that no
doubt can be entertained of our determination
that this relic of barbarism shall never again
in any form pollute our soil. Here we have
made" every needful arrangement for the free
education of oat people, so that if future legis?
lators shall carry.' ont in good faith the previ?
sions which we" have ordained on this vital
subject, in a few year?, the stain of ignorance
which now pollutee our history will be forever
obliterated, and the happy period will have
arrived when no t en or daughter cf South Caro
lina will be unable to read and write. Thus
have we broadly sown the seeds ol public edu
cation, and thus shall we, in no distant time,
reap the rich harvest of public vii tue. Crime
and ignorance are inseparable companions. We
have stricken a heavy blow at both, and may
look for the natural and inevitable result in the
elevation of all our people to a soc ial, political
and religious eminence, to which, under the
former constitution and laws of tba State, they
had never attained.
Here, too. we have obliteratedircm our politi?
cal system, that most pernicious nuresy or State
sovereignty-a heresy which, for :iearly half a
century, taught by our leaders had, like an
igni8jului3, led the people of South Carolina
on more than one occasion to the brink of re?
bellion, until there arose at length, as a neces?
sary result of this doctrine, one of the most
fratricidal wars that the world ever saw. The
theory of a divided allegiance, and of a sov?
ereignty within a sovereignty, ali ie incongru?
ous with all the principles of political science,
and with the system of national powers estab?
lished by our fathers, has received from you a
death blow. No longer, if the cossti tntion you
have adopted should be ratified by the people,
will there be any danger of a future rebellion,
in which the glorious dag of cur common
country-a flag which has so ofter "braved the
battle and the breeze"-shall be treated by a
portion of the nation with insult, and for it an
ensign be substituted, consecratod by no na?
tional traditions, and simply the novel insignia
of a ditiruptured Confederacy. Iii establishing
this principle of a permanent al h gi ance to the
national government, you have tl rown a pro?
tection around the national life fir the future,
and you have justified the acts of those Union
men who, in the midst of a wide-spread and
threatening rebellion, nobly stood by the doc?
trine you have announced, and would not ac?
knowledge that the State, however much they
loved it as their home, could supplant in their
affections the nation rom which they received
I speak not of these as parts of the results
of our labors in any spirit of acrimony towards
those who have heretofore neglected these
great duties of legislators; for I would desire
to bury the past in that oblivion which beet
befits it, or to hold it only as a beacon light to
warn us from its follies and ite perils in the
future; but because ae stewards of a great
trust, we have a right to show to our constitu?
ents how we have discharged the duties of the
stewardship which they had coniided to us.
To the people of South Carol na we submit
the constitution which we were instructed to
frame, in the confident expectation that its
manifest superiority over all ether constitu?
tions by which this Commonwealth has hith?
erto been governed will secure fcritatriumph
Emt ratification. We do not claim for ourselves
i pre-eminence of wisdom or virtue, but we do
:lnim that we have followed m tl ie progressive
advancement of the age, that we have been
bold enough, and honest enongh, and wise
enough to trample obsolete and in worthy pre?
judices under foot and thus have been enabled

NTERESTTNG INFORMATION TO]'. TBE GERMAN'S
ES AMERICA-THE GUARANTEED RIGHTS OF
NATURALIZED CITIZENS-FUL1 ? TEXT OF THE
The following is the exact text of the new
reaty signed on the 22d of february hythe
.epresentativea of the United States and Prus
ia, on behalf of the German Confederation,
n relation to the rights of 1 Ritualized Ger
nans in America:
The President of the United States and his
dajeety the King of Prussia in the nome of
he North German Confedera u'on, led by the
vish to regulate the citizens!] ip of those per
ions who emigrate from the North German
Confederation to the United S totes of America,
ind from the United States cf America to the
erritory of the North Germai Confederation,
lave resolved to treat on this subject, and
lave for that purpose appointed plenipoten?
tiaries to conclude a convention ; that is to ,
lay, the President of the T knited 8tates of
imerica-George Bancroft, 'Envoy Extraordi- J
?ary and Minister Plenipotentiary from said 1
States near the King of Pnissi i and the North
berman Confederation, and Hie Majesty the <
ling af Prussia-Bernhard K?nig, Privy ,
Counsellor of Legation, who have agreed to
ind signed the following artic! ;? :
Art. L Citizens of the North German Con- 1
federation who hare become naturalized citi- <
sens of the United States of America, and i
ihall have resided uninterruptedly within the ?
United States five years, shad be held by the
S?rth German Confederation to be American '
citizens, and shall be treated ts such. Recip- 3
rocally, citizens of the United States of Amer- 1
.ca who become naturalized citizens of the i
North German Confederatioi., and shall have ?
resided uninterruptedly within North Germa?
ny five years, shall be hel 3 by the United l
States to be North German c: tizens, and shall
be treated as such. The declaration of an in- j
tention to become a citizen of the one cr the
other country has not for eitber party the ef?
fect of naturalization.
An. 2. A naturalized citizen of the one par?
ty cn return to the territory of the other party,
remains liable to trial and punishment for an
iction punishable by the laira of bis original '
country and committed before his emigration, :
saving always the limitation established by -
the laws of his original country.
Art. 3. The convention for the mutual deliv?
ery of criminals and fugitives from justice in 1
certain cases, concluded bel ween the. United
States on the one part and Prussia and other
States of Germany on the other part, the 16th
Jay of June, 1852, is hereby extended to all
the States o? the North German Confedera?
Art. 4. If a German, naturalized in America
renews his residence in Nocrth Germany with
the intent to return to Am erica, he shall be
beld to have renounced bin naturalization in
the United States. Reciprocally, if an Ameri?
can, naturalized in North Germany, renews
Iiis residence in the United states without the
intent to r eturn to North Germany, he shall
be held to have renounced hie naturalization
in North Germany. The intent not to return
may be held to exist when the person natur?
alized in one country resides inore than two
years m the other country.
Art. 5. The present convection shall go into
effect immediately on the ex change of ratifica?
tions and shall continue in force for ten years ;
if neither party shall have given to the other
sis months, previous notic e of its intention
then to te; ruinate same, i ; shall further re
main in force until the end of twelve moDtns
after either of the contra; ting parties shall
have given notice to the o :her of such inten?
Art. 6. The present conve nticn shall be rati?
fied by the Pr?sidant, by and with the advice
and consent of the Senate of the United States,
and by His Majesty the liing of Proeeia, in
the name of the North Gen ian Confederation,
and the ratifications shall be exchanged at
Berlin within aix months fi om the date here?
In faith whereof the plenipotentiaries have
eigned and sealed this coavention at Eerlin,
the 22d day of February, 18-38.
The convention, which, as will be seen, is
with the North German Confederation, instead
of with Prussia, is the most important act of
the new Bund. It is so de ir and conciEe in its
tarma that it is scarcely possible for any mis?
conception of them to occur. The right of
emigration is conceded, and the North German
is freed from all obligation i to his native coun?
try from the time o? his en?gration. The con?
cessions cn the part of tl e United States are
designed to preven: a fr indulent transfer of
allegiance, in which Amen ea is as much inter?
ested as Nonb Germany. The principle in?
volved in article four has fer some time been
maintained by the Government of the United
States, and although the intention o? a perma?
nent residence in the original country may te
presumed alter a continued residence thereof
mere than two years, according to the last
paragraph of the artie'e, the provis ion is dis?
cretionary and not peremptory,

?3-A FALLACY.-SOME PEOPLE THINK
that Chronic Dyspepsia may be cured by exercise 1
md diet alone. This is a mistake. The Stomach
must be stimulated and regulated, and the liver and
the discharging organs put in good working order be?
fore a cure can be effected. Such is the operation of J
"They tone the stomach, set the liver right,
And put the stomach in such a healthful plight,
That good digestion waits on appetite."
Many persons fancy that Fever and Ague can be
avoided by adopting unusual precautions against
damp and cola. Never was there a greater fal.
lacy. There is no absolute safeguard against ma- j
larioui maladies, except HOSTETTEB'S BITTERS.
"To brace the frame and make it ague-proof,
To keep the causes of disease aloof,"
Enere is nothing like this genial vegetable in vigor- j
Int. So, too, in caaes where there is a predisposition
to biliousness ; the constitutional tendency is com?
mited and held in check by the alterative action pf
Diet and regimen are powerful allies of judicious j
nedical treatment when the preservation of health
n insalubrious localities is the object m view. But
hey will not answer the desired end alone. Bee
them aa aids to the BITTERS, but do not rely upon
he efficacy of any formula that does not include tbi
The BITTERS consist of an unadulterated vege
able essence (unrivalled among stimulants), medi?
tated solely with herbs and roots of acknowledged
virtue as tonics. It is agreeable to the taste and per?
fectly harmless. Even to children of delicate con?
futations it may be given with perfect impunity,
