A SAFE INVESTMENT.
In the second year of the late civil war, I
wt? married, and went to live with my hus?
band in a email village on the Hudson, some
fifty .or sixty mi iee from Hew York. The noose
we occupied w&e a large, rambling mansion,
of considerable antiquity for this country,
and stood a little apart from the rest of the
vffiage, surrounded by broad fields, and com?
manding a glorious view of tbe river and the
bide of the Highlands. It had been -built be?
fore the Rovolotiorx, by my husband's great?
grandfather, and, ''though destitute of many
"modern improvements," waa still a comfort a- I
ble and'pleaaant residence.
My husband was a lawyer and a large real
eerate-owner la the neighborhood, and, at the
period of which I write, was greatly perplexed,
like many other persons in the North, hy tbe
perilous state of the tunee, and especially
about the safe investment of his funds, as tba.
suspension of specie payments, the great rise
ia gold, and the inihtary disasters in Virginia,
made it almost impossible to tell where it
would be safe t? deposit or to use one's money
in any large amount.
In the course of hie transactions in real es?
tate, it happened, one day that he received
what was for na thea a large sum, about ten j
thousand, dollars, winch he nought borne and
placed in my charge, telling sae at the Barrie'
fimo that he would have to be absent during
tho ?renme, attending to some busin ese on
the other side of the river, and should sot be
at home until about midnight. J
"Von can pjaoe tte money in the safe, dear," J
beeafd, ?0 he gave :t to me, "and to-morrow IJ
wiH'-try and' find eome way to invest it se-j
.t&ea'ying, ie stepped ?Et0 the boggy, which }
?#??8t?Dding at, the door, and drove away,
tatong with him ocr hired man ttilae, and lear
ing. me with no one in the bouse bot Dinah, I
an old colored woman, who fulfilled ic our)
modest household the functions of cook and
eaaid-of-ah-work. ae sba had lcmg done in the
nundy of my own parents, who, OD my marri-1
a*re. had .Yielded her to me as a valuable part I
<tf My dower. ;
.lUnaa ?as indeed a character. She was tall I
and vexy.stout, Weiching, she never would tell
how snob, sore than two hundred pound**!
She waa very black, and as lazy as she war i
. black. Ido not think any one could move
?ore deliberately tb an Dinah did that is, to J
.r move at all. And by a wonderful dispensa- j
ti on, abe seemed to feel that whatever her I
other faults might be, she was strong on the
pom t of locomotion. For when she had been (
stoving with a ponderous slowness, almost j
maddening to a person of ordinary quicknese,
one of ber favorite expressions was. "Well, I
Hiss Lillie, what shall 1 fly ont o next ?" How I
ah? accomplished all sbe did, the brownies
only know. We used sometimes to tremble
when there was any special burry about our I
. domestic arrangements, and yet Dinah al-1
ways rnAnigtxi to br in? affairs to a cona um m3- j
tion jost when a minute mofe would have I
v ruined everything; and, with undisturbed
front, would slowly enunciate, "Weh, miss,
whaiahalll fly onto next?-' . I
lt was hearty' dark when my husband de- f
parted,- and after giving my orders to Dinah,
or rather my sugfreaiioas, I lent her, and I
made the tour of the boase, to see that all was I
?afb and^properly looked up. Thie da tv it
tended to, I went io my .bedroom, toteada? 1
to pass toe time in reading until my husband [
should return. I

The night was exceedingly bot, and I there?
fore left the windows open, though I drew the
entrains, before I se ried myself at the table hi
the contre of the loom, lighted the. candles,
and began to read, in order to pass the heavy
time before the retirxn of my hnsbind.
A^era while I heard the clock strike nine,
at wbich boar Dinah always went to bed. Her

somewhat tired, I reeoivod to go to bed, aa, at
that Tate hour in the country, it was quite oer
:.? ?arin that no visit?n woold call, and my hus

was to keep quiet and feign sleep. I thought

I made my breathing recular, ania & little
louder than when I was awake, and lay with my |
cheek on my band, counterfeiting sleep. At
last the btUrnem became more terrible tban
even my first agony of fear. Me ver al times I
fancied I heard a soft sien approach from tho
place of concealment. As often 1 was deceived.
Then ag iio that dreadful stillness, m which J
counted the ticking of the watch through the
pillow. It was a positive relief when he came
ont from behind the curtain, stopped at the
table, and stood looking at me, as I waa well
aware tbough my eyes were closed. I forced
mynelf to breathe regularly and audibly, fie

eyeB suddenly upoa him.
As be walked softly toward the safe. I did
parity open them, and cautiously watched him
through my- eyelashes. I heard him fumb?
ling with the lock, and once be looked over
toward the. bed. My eyes were wide open,
but I closed them in time not- to be detected.
"Watching him stealthily, I s ?KW- him open the
door of the safe, go back: to the stand for the

waited and watched. I sprang lightly from

ons loud shriek fell prostrate and senseless on
the ?cor of the dari room.
How long I lay upon the floor I don't know
probably tor a fe v minutes only-but as 1 was
un?onreloua, it seemed, when I carno to my -
sell, pp if the interval had.been a long one. I was
aroused by bis blows upon the iron door, an 1

before rising, tbcthe could not escape, mingled
with a vague tad foolish dread that be might
in hie rage turn the valuable contents of the
safe. , He pbnnded desperately on the door,
and swore fearfully at finding himself- en-J
trapped. Bot as took no notice of his outcries, ?
he'soon grew quiet:

with trembling, fingers, turning often to ?

that my mind was full of images of horror. I

as how could Dinah's clock belp doing?-I saw

When the ?afe was opened, there sat my bur?

SAVANNAH, June 30.-COTTON -Owing to the
firmness on the part of holders, our market for the
post week has shown but little activity. The of?
fering stock has been light, and principally of the
lower grade, and the market closed with buyers
unwilling to concede to the asking prices or hold?
ers. The Bales of the week have been ieee bales.
The stock on hand at the close of the market
yesterday was 8419 oales of uplands and 348
bales sea Islands-from the former figures, 25
bales, and irom the latter 150 bales must be de?
ducted, being tho amount burned on the 9th of
March. The receipts at all the ports foot up.
2,760,005 bales; the stock on hand at all the ports
to latest dates, reach 181,562 bales against 70,994
bcl<w the same time last year.
The following resume of our daily market will
show the various changes In the market for the
past week: ? '
June 24 -Dall and irregular. Sales 1&0 bales.
We quole middling 19al0*c.
June 25.-Our market was dull, owing to the
firmness on the part ol holders; buyers are offer?
ing 18*c for middling. Sales loo bales. We
quote the asking prices of factors,; middling 19c.
June 27.-Holders showed some anxiety to sell,
and the offering stock consisted mostly of good
ordinary and lower grades, the .latter being al?
most unsalable. Tbe sales were if? bales ac ir?
regular prices. We quote middling at 19c.
Jane 28.-In consequence or the irregular prices
pald.it was difficult to give correct quotations.
The quotations given are based npon actual
solea The sales were iso bales. Wc quote mid
Jone 29.-There was a good demand. Boyera
as a. general thing paid prices fatly np to the fol?
lowing quotations: .? addling is* cts. Bales 900
bales-. . .
june so.-Holders having reduced their offering
stock, and being more fl rm la their asking prices,
compelled buyers, who were unwilling to concede,
, to withdraw from the mark?t. The sales were loo
bales; middling 18*c.
SBA ISLAND.-There has been but very little
done In this class of the staple for the past week,
and most of the cotton on hand is held for better
prices. We therefore quote nominally: Mains
(commonly called cart cotton,) 27 cts; common
Georgia and Floridas 23a34; medium Floridas 36a
38; good Floridas 40a42; medium flue Flor.das 45a
50; nne Floridas 52a55.

bales, sales 102; shipped 116. Receipts for the
week ending this evening HQ bales; sales 838;
shipments 373. The last week has been the dullest
,of the present cotton season. Holders have
steadily refused to offer, In the hope that prices
wonldadvance, and the little sold was only to
realize money that bad to.be raised on any terms
within the bounds of reason. The demand has
bees light .all the week and confined to the beat
grades of ootton. In the lower grades the dif?
ference in prices ls greater than lt was daring the
winter months, and the demand for this class of
cotton ls very limited, Indeed. On the week's
operations prices have fallen off In this market

Incompetence and assurance generally go band

the unscientific "medicine men" who attempt to.
tamper with the health of the commnnity are
the most dangerous and the most impudent.
So much by way of text. Now for a special
and particular application.
It appears that a mushroom growth or sa called
"Bittere" ls springing up under different names
in various localities, particularly in the Southern
and Western States, which the venders have the
hardihood to recommend ;o easy-going people
upon whom they rhlnk they can impose, as a sub?
stitute for HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTER?,
long recognized by every class as the purest and
best medicated stimulant and lovlgorant the
The concoctions referred to being composed of
worthless materials, offer a larger margin for
profit than that Celebrated Tonic, and hence the
anxiety of dollar-worshipping lealers to foist
them upon the public in its place.
But "forewarned is forearmed," and all par?
ties whom these distinguished fr) "beings are en?
deavoring to coax and inveigle into substituting j
trash for a standard remedy, are hereby inform- j
ed of the selfish and sordid motives which under?
lie the representations m question.
The great popularity and vast sales of HOSTET?
TER'S BITTERS cannot, of course, be seriously
impaired by these "tricks of trade," but as the

BO newly to the Oo?< as in giving health co men,
Health ls thc vital power animating all the en?
joyments of lire, which are insipid and tasteless,
nay dead without it. A man starves at the most
sumptuous feast, is indifferent to tue most costly
and delicate wines-wretched amidst thc greatest
wealth and grandeur.
With the ordinary and fashionable diseases we
dally meet with, such as dyspepsia, debility, pre?
mature decay, shattered nerves, et td omne genus,
strength becomes decrepit ade, youth is deprived
of its vigor, and beauty of all Its charms. Music
ls discord, and conversation vapid and spiritless;
riches utterly useless, and honors and attendance
embarrassing and burdensome.
Ill health equalizes and levels ail conditions of ]
life, making no ci.terence between thc banker;
and the beggar, for each i"?ls as miserable and
wretched as the other. The approximate cause GI
this distressing condition is, in a majority or
crises, attributable to a breaking down of the
digestive and secretary apparatus. Vitalize the
one and regulate the other; strengthen and sus?
tain the one, and stimulate and modify the other.
This can be readily done by having recourse to a
health glving alterative vegetable tonic, that will
restore thc dilapidated system, and rouse and re?
awaken the dormant corporeal and mental ener?
gies, endowing the digestive apparatus with new
vigor, and enlisting oil the secretary organs to a
rightful discharge of their functions.
