Tho Now York World, of Satur?

Curtin, on lits message to the Legis?
Retiring from tho.' Governorship of
Pennsylvania, and aspiring to tho
Senator's chair which falls vacant in
March, Governor Curtin labors in his
last message to out-Steven Stevens.
Wherefore ho argues-no! he de?
claims-fr<;'n the assumption that the
Southern Stales have no rights of
representation in Congress; from the
assumption that the Southern States
are not us free to reject as to accept
the Howaul amendments; from the
assumption that those States aro
punishable whoso lately rebellious
citizens Congress itself has prescribed
in? punishment for; and from various
other assumpiio&? equally illogical
and extreme, that:
"If two-thirds of Congress, as now
constituted, could lawfully propose
those amendments, then three
fourths of the States* not excluded
from representation in Congress form
a sufficient majority to effect their
Mr. Curtin will wake up some fine
morning, and, finding his own argu?
ment by accident turned end for end
in his mind, will discover with what
cogency he has clinched the protests
of the Legislatures of each of the
excluded Southern States against the
legality of tho proposal of constitu?
tional amendments which ten States
had-no voice in framing.
The whole message c>f Gov. Curtin
is a pitiable exhibition of feeble facul?
ties stooping to low means to reach a
high place. A boy who had blown
his nose on a cotton handkerchief
stamped with the Constitution of the
United States should have learned
more of ita letter and spirit than this
Governor exhibits any knowledge of.
And the difference between Thaddeus
Stevens' daring defiance of that su?
premo law and of tho high court
which interprets its provisions, and
Mr. Curtin's .strained efforts to re?
concile, under the form of a constitu?
tional argument, a disunionisni worse
than Steven's, with his own ignorance
of thc law and his incompetence to
reason upon it, makes the former
seem respectable by comparison.

Winter, in (Ms climate, ia a trying season.
Its unsteady temperature greatly aggra
v. 'es dyspepsia, and acts very unfavorably
upo,, 'hat sensitive organ, thc liver. Tho
alternai. ->n :>f frost and thaw keeps the
pores of tie* body continually opening and
contracting, and the result is. a condition
of thc system favorablo to the action of
the atmospheric virus which produces in?
termittent fevers. Hence a protective me?
dicine, like IIOSTETTER'S STOMACH
BITTERS, is especially needed in ike win?
ter months. The. effect of this great Con?
stitutional Invigorant, in rendering even
tho feeblest frame impervious to all mala?
rious iBfluences, is a grand feet demon?
strated by the uniform experience of a
quarter of a century. As a stomachic, an
unti-bilious medicine, and a preventive and
.uro of ?'ever and Ague, it is the one thing
leedful, which none who value tho pre?
.ervation of health can afTord to do with
The sick, win n at death's door, regret
lett they did not lako the right antidote at
he right time. Thousands who are now
?uffering from tho early twinges of liver
:oinp!aint and dyspepsia, will be prostrate
ni sick-beds, a "month hence, if they do
tot arrest thc mischief r.t once. Nothing
s more easy. A course of the purest and
?'?st vegetable tonie and alterative known
n modern pharmacy-Hostetter's Sto
nach Fitters-will restore the digestivo
trgans t>> their lull vigor, and bring tho
lisordercd liver into a conditio i of perfect
lealth, as certainly as sunshine dissipates
ho morning vapors. Fever and Ague, too,

loto to al! . iiasmatiCdiseascs. strengthen
ho system with the Bitters, and you may
lefy all tho complaints which prevail at
his inclement season. Jan ? t*
