'Let our Jutt Censure
Attend tho True Event."
BY J. A. SELBY.
COLUMBIA, S. C.. SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 9, 1870.
VOL. VI-NO. 174.
?f^SfepJMJ** BpV^rWyfMtt former*
ly waa ana. aa lt BOW ia, thus criticises
the Frehoh e'oldter .of the'present day:
The French 'rfo?dler 'has,' in co?ac-'
quenco o?,.his mode of lifo, lost all mili?
tari^virtues; his disciplina is weak; his
ambition i? blunted. I am assured that !
whon. MoMnhon marched through this
place (Rheims) tho Ff euell soldiers, tired
of carrying their arms, threw them away
and laughed and sneered in the faces of
their of?oers. I have everywhere found
?roofs of tho vandalism of which tho
'reach soldiers are guilty in their own
villages and towns. I have met towns?
people who openly declared that they
would rather have twenty Prussians ns
enemies than five Frenchmen as defend?
ers. How careless the French army can
be in presence of tho enemy was seen at
Beaumont, where our men surprised n
largo French encampment in broad day,
while the meals were being cooked.
They: bad not oven outposts. * * *
What the French soldier is in camp, ho
is oa the morely. He cannot march ; he,
therefore,' make* very little progress day
by day. Marchen of five miles for threo
or four coneocutivo days, such as our
menufcaffa gp often made in this cam?
paign, would have garnished the roads
withixthe whole French army. The
Fren oh soldier is all the more exacting
for this. He beare privations unwilling?
ly* rgrumblea when they are put upon
hitn, and uses force against his own
countrymen in order to obtain what he
reauirM; The patience and endurauce
which oar soldiers showed in this war,
when it waa necessary to do without
bread, and even water, would be incom?
prehensible to the Frenohman. It is
true, and I cannot sufficiently accentuate
this, that the French have fought brave
? ly-and who would not fight with such
a weapon as the chassepot? Where our
artillery played upon them vigorously
they always fell away from each other,
their offioers had no power over them.
What we have suffered from them, and
Qed knows it is muon, was brought upon
ns by their fearful weapon, which was
pale I death itself to our men, which
smote upon them so like hail that a hap?
py chance only preserved any from
wounds or death.
An economioally-minded Massachu?
setts man whose wife had a sore leg,
saved the expense of surgical advice by
tying her down on a bench and ampu?
tating the offending member with a
butcher-knife and a hand-saw. The
op?ration was entirely successful, os re?
garded the leg, but the body bled to
"IB there any danger of this boaL's
blowing a fellow up?" asked a timid
passenger on board an American steam?
boat? "No," was the reply; "but that
lady-there is one of the owners, and she
is dangerous in that line, if what her
husband says is truel"

A TAINTED ATMOSPHERE-Malarious
fevers aro most prevalent in the fall. Heavy
and uuwholosomo exhalations then arise from
tho earth, and tho great disparity between
tho tempcraturo of day and night predisposes
tho system, enfeebled by tho summer boats,
to opidemic dieoases. Tho secretive organs,
tho liver especially, aro apt, at this period of
tho year, to become inert and sluggish, and
all tho bodily powors require renovation. Tho
best, indeed tho only protection against the
morbid inlluenccs ot tho season is a whole?
some medicated stimulant. Pre-eminent
among the restoratives of this class, and in*
deod foremost among tho remedial and pre?
ventivo mcdioines of modern times, stands
HoBtetter's Stomach Bitters. Its reputation
is co-cxtensivc with thc Western Hemisphere;
it has been a staudard articlo for twenty
years; ita sales (as may bo ascertained by tho
revenue returns) aro far larger than those of
any other proprietary preparation on this
continent; and tho testimony in its favor em?
braces lottersof approval from tho most dis?
tinguished members of all the learned pro?
fessions and from well known residents of al?
most ovory city in the Union. These aro ita
credentials. To state what it is doing to pre?
vent and assuago tho sufforiDgs of tho human
family would requiro moro space than can bo
given to the subject hero. Tho dyspeptic,
tho bilious, the nervous, tho weak and ema?
ciated, tho desponding, tho broken down,
find in its renovating and regulating proper?
ties a sure and immediate means of relief. It
is a puro vegetablo specific, at onco safo and
potent, and for which tho wholo materia me?
dica affords no substitute._Oct IC tu'
