I obtained permission to withdraw the rei
( tn motion, Council adjourned.
J. S. MCMAHON, City Clerk.
General Sherman dismisses tho ofll
seekers who aro badgering him for his
fluonoe with General tirant, with tho folk
ing decisive refusal:
I will not, under nny circumstances,
commend anybody for any civil office wh
ever, nor solicit from General Grant t
appointment of any one. I will endo
your military career for a military appol
ment with, pleasure, when there is a vaoan
but nothing moro.
A MALARIOUS MONTH-March, ?hat gives
us a now President, is also tho inaugural mouth
of many harrassing disorders. Entangled in its
fogs aro the seeds of coughs, colds, and of that
alternation of frigidity and fire, moro widely known
than admired, called fever and ague. Tho only
way to avoid these "little unpleasantnesses," is
to render thc system strong enough to fight off
the atmospheric poison that produces them, and
tho host way to endow it with this repelle nt power
is to tone it with HOSTE ["TEH'S STOMACH RIT?
If a w.iy-faror woro credibly informed that a ruf?
fian was waiting at the next corner, he would
donbtless turn in bis tracks, and tukea safer route
to his destination. With just about tho same
amount of trouble, the attacks of diseases preva?
lent at this season may bc evaded. Nay, tho trou?
ble will bo lees, for drug stores ho in every one's
routo, and every respectable druggist in thc Union
keeps on hand HOSTETTER'S RITTERS. Tho
article is a staple of trade, aud it would bo as easy
to lind a grocery without sugar, as tho store of
an apothecary without this popular tonic re?
lu view of Hie exp?rience of the nation with
regard to tho article, during the space of twenty
years, it seems almost unnecessary tc recapit??
lalo its merits to Americans. Rut as nur popula?
tion is increasing at tho rate of 2,000,OOO a year,
in the natural way and by immigration, it may bc
as well to hint to the rising generation and new
arrivals, (tho old settlers know all about it,) that
HOSTE TTE R'S STOMACH BITTERS is tho most
wholesome and potent vegetable tonic ever manu?
factured; that it is a specific for debility, dyspep?
sia, biliousness, and miasmatic fevers; that it
prevents, as well as cures, these complaints and
their complications; that it is not "bad to take,"
anil is absolutely harmless. March 3 10
