and been made during the morning by some
*?f the Radical element, that speakers who
should denounce Governor R. K. Scott would
ue knocked down and otherwise disposed of,
those who' threatened kept very "dark"
when the eloquent advocates of Reform
poiuied out in plain and unmistakable
words that the present State adminis?
tration had from the commencement been one
o? dishonesty and corruption. During Hie
speeches there were a lew questions asked and
answered by the andiene?. Otherwise there
was no interruption. Mr. J. N. Nathans, ol
Charleston, made the closing speech. At the
sound of his voice, the hundreds present
crowded around him iu a dense standing mass.
Eloquent, earnest and Impressive in his man?
ner, warming wini Hie subject of Reform, he
exposed the corruptness ol the present admin?
istration, aud the ruin that it would bring us
to should lt continue. His urgent appeals and
convincing arguments have made many con?
verts. Some of those who openly and almost
violenily opposed bis polly expressed them?

At a regular meet ?ur of the German Friend?

preamble and resolutions were adopted :
Agaiu has this society been called upon to
mumu tho loss of a useful and esteemed mem?
ber. Mr. Werner MUIIPT, boru in Bremen in
the year 1835, was cut off in the prime of life,
after only a few days' sickness. He was be?
loved by all who knew him, and while we bow
submissively to the will of an all-wise Provi?
dence, we can but feel that onr society has lost
I one who. in all the walks of life, was upright
and honest; a warm friend, devoted husbaud,
a kind and affectionate father.
Resolved, That the secretary be instructed
to tender our warmest sympathies to the be?
reaved family of the deceased.
Resolved That a pace in our. Minute Book be
inscribed to his memory, and that these pro?
ceedings be published in THE NEWS and

pm* BEAR IN MIND.-WHEN THE
disease has undermined the health, and the phy?
sical system hus become prostrated, a fitlmulant
that will not only strengthen, but remove the
cause, should be immediately resorted to. Men?
tal distress ls also a fruitful source of the break?
ing down of the constitution, and the rivages of
this enamy to health are truly alarming. For all
such maladies HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS have been found unsurpassed. By acting
directly upon the digestive organs, they remove
the heavy, disagreeable feeling arter eating, so
often complained of by persons of a delicate
temperament. As soon as digestlou ls restored,
the patient flndE his strength increasing, and his
general health Improved.
Thousands of persons certify that lt may be
relied on in all cases of weakness or nervous
debility attendant upon sedentary habits. The
generality of Bitters are so disagreeable to the
taste that they are objectionable to a weak
stomach. This ls not the case with Hostetter
Bitters, which will be found mild and extremely
pleasant. Balsamic plants, barks and roots con
t ribute their restorative Juices to render lt sooth
lng and strengthening. lu basis ls the only pure
stimulant which has evei been produced, con
taming no fusil oil. or any ether deleterious ele
ment. LThe most careful and skilful chemists
have analyzed thc Bitters, and pronounce them
harmless. This ls seien ti Cc testimony; bat the
testimony of the hundreds of thousands who
have experienced the preventive and curative
effects of the Great Vegetable Tonic and Altera
tiveof modern times ls still more conclusive. In
Fever and Agu?, Dyspepsia, Biliousness, Nervous
Complaints, Chronic Complaints and General De
bllity, lt ls as nearly Infallible as anything lu this
