SIR HENRY PB HOGHTON.-This
gentleman, in a letter to the London
Herald, not only proves hi? existence,
bat shows his "game" on the "Con?
federate Loan" question, while, os]
bo says, most of his associates dodge.
He espoused the rebel side, and 'will
not, becauso it failed, back down.
Hie letter concludes thus:
"If I did lose by that loan even
the sum attributed to my name by
the Pall Mall Gazelle, I at least vas
not ashamed of tho causo in which I
loat.it, nor sought to fall away from
my friends when that cause came to
its worst. '
"I stood loyally by the ?outhern
people from first to lost, and I be?
lieve there is not an American (be he
North or South) who would condemn
me for adhering throughout to a
losing cause, which I believed, and
still believe, to have been a just one.
"I have no desire to make mischief
with regard to tho timi which the Pall
Mall Gazette is pleased to designate as
'an impudent forgery;' but perhaps
it may some day become known that
Mr. Bigelow and Mr. Seward were
not quite so much befooled in it as
they were supposed to be.
"I have the honor to be, sir, your

A KA Li? Ac Y.-?j o nj o people think that
chroui? dyspepsia ma/ be cured bj exer?
cise and diet alone. This ie a mistake.
Tho stomach must be stimulated and r?gu-'
lated, and the liver and the discharging
organs pnt in good working order before a
cure can be effected. Such is the opera?
tion of HOSTETTER'S BITTEB8. ? ?
"They tone the stomach, set the liver
And put the stomach in such healthful
That good digestion waits on appetite."
Many persons fancy that fever and aguo
can be avoided by adopting unusual pre?
cautions againBt damp and-cold. Neve
wa? thero a greater fallacy. There is no
abaolnto safeguard against malarious ma?
ladies, except Hostcttor'a Bitters..
"To brace the frame, and make it aguo
To keep the causeo of disease aloof,"
There is nothing liko this genial vege?
table invigorant. So, too, in casen where
there ' fe a predisposition to biliousness:
the constitutional tendency ie combatted
and held in check by tho alterative action
of the Hitters.
Diet and regimen aro powerful allies of
judicious medical treatment when the pre?
servation of health in insalubrious locali?
ties is the object in view. But they will
not answer thc dosired end alone. Uso
therm as aids to the Bitters, but do not
rely upon the efficacy of any formula that
doos not include this admirable tonic.
The Bitters consist of an unadulter.ited
vegetable essence, (unrivalled among sti?
mulants,) medicated solely with herbs and
roots of acknowledged virtue as tonics.
It is.agreeable to tho taste and perfectly
harmless. Even to children of delicate
constitutions it may be given with perfect
impunity. In fact*, wi'h these, as with
those or older growth, its wonderful r?cu?
p?rant properties are at once apparent. . .
