Causeless Depression.?This expres?
sion is often used, but is manifestly
absurd. Gloom and melancholy are not
spontaneous. They are unnatural men?
tal conditions and usually have corres?
ponding causes. If there is no apparent
reason for despondency, it is a symptom
of physical disease. In nine cases out
of ten, the stomach, the liver and the
bowels aro responsible for the cloud
which rest upon the brain. In all snch
cases immediate and permanent relief
may be obtained by the use of Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters. If the digestive orgiUis
are weak an invigorant is necessary; if
the liver is disordered an alterative is
required; if the bowels are constipated
or irregular a gentle aperient is needed.
In that famous vegetable remedy these
three medicinal properties ore commin?
gled with several others of n scarcely less
important character, and hence it speed?
ily cures every species of hypoaondria
arising from material causes, by remov?
ing the cause themselves.
In the summer, when disorders of tho
stomach and bowels, bilious complaints
and all diseases which affect assimilating
and secretive organs aro especially pre?
valent, tho importance of having this
invaluable tonic, alterative and correct?
ive in every dwelling, and within tho
roach of all who travel by land or water,
cannot be over-estimated. As it is a
staple article throughout the country, it
would bo next to impossible to find n
settlement, near or remote, unprovided
with a stock of this famous vegetable
restorative. Juno 11 f31ll

The folio wing correspondence has passed j
between Go v. Chamberlain and Hon. W.
D. Porter, relative to the flag furnished
by the Governor for presentation at the
Coh mdia, June 9, 187-5.
Hon. W. D. Porter, Charleston, & C?
My Dear Sir: The Washington Light
Infantry of Charleston are about to leave
your city to take part in the celebration
of tho contennial anniversary of the battlo
of Bunker Hill. I have procured a dag
with the emblems and legends of our
State emblazoned thereon, which I wish
placed in thoir hands, to bo borno by
them on the patriotic mission which
calls them from tho State. I am unable
in person to perform tho duty of pre?
senting the nag, but 1 am more than
compensated for this disappointment by
tho sincere pleasure I feel in asking you
to represent me in this respeot. iour
association with the Washington Light
Infantry as a post commander, your
identification with all that interests your
city and our State, and tho mre felicity
of speeoh by which you are always en?
abled to touch the hearts of those who
love South Carolina, and my personal
knowledge of your character, have com?
bined to indicate and approve my se?
I wish that this flag may be received
by the Washington Light Infantry as a
proof of my personal and official interest
in their organization, and especially in
tho purposes and feelings which inspire
their present visit to Massachusetts. I
wish that its presence at Bunker Hill
may signify the sincere veneration in
which the people of South Carolina hold
all who bora a part in founding the Ame?
rican nation. I wish that it may call to
mind, wherever it may be seen, the early
patriotism which gave to America and
the world the examples and memories of
Eutaw and Bunker Hill, of Lexington
and King's Mountain, and the hundred
other battle-fields where South Carolina
and Massachusetts, the North and the
South, mingled their best blood. If that
early patriotism, if those costly sacri?
fices, ore to have full fruition, it will be
when the North and the South shall
again be.united by the indissoluble bond
of their love of country. If recent bitter
estrangements aro to be succeeded by
tho sweet rewards of peace, it will be
when, by the common efforts of the
North and the South, a free and just Na?
tional Government shall command the
lovo and honor of all sections und States.
To hasten such results, is tho function
of those memorial observances in which
the Washington Light Infantry and this
flag of South Carolina will bear a sign i li -
cant and honorable part. I beg you to
entrust this flag to the keeping of your
comrades of the Washington Light In?
fantry, with such expressions of patriotic
sympathy as the occasion may suggest.
I May heaven prosper and protect them
while absent, and may the Bunker Hill
of to-day bo to them and to us all a spot
sacred, from henoeforth, to national
peace and fraternity. With sentiments
of highest regard, your friend and serv?
ant, Di H. CHAMBERLAIN,
Governor of South Carolina.
Charleston, June 11, 1875.
To His Excellency Governor D. II. Cham?
berlain?Dear Sir: I am in receipt of
your letter of 9th June. I will under?
take with pleasure the duty assigned me
of delivering, in your name, to the W.
L. I. the flag, so truly and tastefully em?
blematic of South Carolina, which you
wish them to bear on their patriotic mis?
sion to the centennial celebration at
Bunker Hill. So thoughtful and oppor?
tune a compliment will tie most grate?
fully appreciated by them. Permit me
to express my cordial concurrence in
the sentiments so happily expressed by
you. It seems to me as if there was
something providential in the occur?
rence of these centennial celebrations so
soon after onr recent estrangement. If
there be a common ground on which the
people of the North and South can meet
and look each other in the eyes, and
strike hands and renew their pledges of
fidelity to liberty and union, without
disparagement or loss of self-respect on
either side, it is upon the grounds, the
holy places, where their forefathers laid
the foundations of independence, and
then cemented them with their precious
blood. The memories there kindled
will, by a sort of moral telegraphy, flash
from the first altars of liberty raised in
the North to tho first altars in the South,
and thence diffuse themselves, as electric
t tires, through 40,000,01)0 of hearts that
[ throb in sympathizing patriotism* over
I this mighty continent. This is tho way
of all ways to "bridge over tho chasm."
In furtherance of this blessed work, let
me express the hope that on 28th June,
1870. when South Carolina in her turn
celebrates the victory at Fort Monltrie,
"the bright morning Htar and harbinger
j of American independence,"- Massachu?
setts and all of the Old Thirteen will be
I there to take their place in the picture.
I remsin, with the highest consideration,
vour most obedient servant,
W. I>. PORTER.
