A compound remedy, deaigned to be the most
effectual AUtraHvt that can be made.; It is
a concentrated extract of Para Earaoparilla,
to combined with other substance of (till
greater alterative power as to afford an effec
tive antidote for the disease Saraaparilla is
reputed to cure." It is beliercd that such a
remedy ia wanted by those-who suffer from
Strumoua complaints, and that one which will
accomplish their cure must prove of immense
service to this large class of our afflicted fellow
citizens. ' How completely this compound will
do it has been proven by experiment on many
of the worst cases to be found of the following
' r . : i n ft .
BCUOFuLA. AND' DUllUifUl.uUB vuAri.uni.
EEcmoKS and Ebvptitb Diseases, Ulcbbs,
Pimples, Blotches, Tumors, Saxt Rheum,

VSPSIA and Indiqestion. Ebtsipelas, Eosb
ob St. Anthony's Fihb, and indeed the Whole
class of complaints arising from Impurity op
tub Blood." " '
Thia comnovind will Te found a great pro
moter of health, whea taken in the spring, to
expel the 'Xbul humors' which, tester in tne
blood at that season of the Tear. Br the time
ly expulsion of them many rankling disorders
ara nioned in the bud. Multitudes can, by
the aid of this remedy, spare themselves from
the endurance or lout eruptions ana ulcerous
sores, through which the system will strive to
rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to do
this through the natural channels of the body
by an alterative medicine. Cleanse out the
vitiated blood whenever you find its impurities
burstins: through the skin in pimples, eruptions.
or sores; cleanse it when yon find it is ob
structed and sluggish in the veins ; cleanse it
whenever it Is foul, end your feelings will tell
yon when. Even where no particular disorder
is felt, people enjoy better health, and live
longer, for cleansing the blood. Keep the
blood healthy, and all is well ; but with this
Eabulum of life disordered, thero can be no
isting health. Sooner or later something
must go wrong, and the great machinery of
lue is disordered or overthrown
. Sarsaparilla has, and deserves much, the
reputation of accomplishing these ends. But
the world has been egregiously deceived by
preparations of it, partly because the drug
alone has not all the virtue that ia claimed
for it. but more because many preparations,
pretending to be concentrated extracts of it,
contain but little or tue virtue or barsapamia,
or anv thine else. i
During late years the public have been mis
led by large bottles, pretending to give a quart
of Extract of Sarsaparilla for one dollar. Most
of these have been frauds upon the sick, for
they not only contain little, it any, orsapa
rilla. hut often no curative Dronerties whatev
er. Hence, bitter and painful disappointment
has followed the use of the various extracts of
Sarsaparilla which flood the market, until the
namo itself is justly despised, and has become
synonymous with imposition and cheat. Still
we call this compound Sarsaparilla, and intend
to supply such a remedy as shall rescue the
name from the load of obloquy which rests
upon it. And we think wo nave ground for
believing it has virtues which are irresistible
by the ordinary run of the diseases it is intend
ed to cure. In. order to secure their complete
eradication from the system, the remedy should
be judiciously taken according to directions on
tne Dottie. '

Officers North and South—Are the Union
Forces Efficiently Commanded?
1 This Question Is carefully discuned bv the
Philadelphia iVorfA American, and we quote the
writer's conclusions i ,
Over against Jefferson Davis, who waa train1
ed at the Military Academy, and who, after aer.
vice in the army and in the Mexican war, was
elevated to a plaoe in the Cabinet as Secretary
of War, it were a sin to place onr glorious old
ero, ireuvrai ouubu, wuu Buucrcu iruin (oe
blaokguardism of the eirftoan. Secretary. Gen.
Seitt is his superior in everything) a great strat
egist, while Davis is a pretender) a patriot,
wbile Davis is an ambitious ana seioin intriguer.
Davis bis indeed an iron will, but it Is oftener a
will to do evil than a benefiotnt one. General
Soott Is a magnanimous patriot, who gives his
own unrivalled military talents and experience
to the country without hope of gain.
But leaviDg the commander out of the ques
tion, we are confronted ' with such namea aa
Lse, Beaaregnatd, Joseph Johnston, May, Mag.
ruder, Emory and others, llow are we to re
place such men, who are now a tower of strength
to the enemy 7 Let us analyze tbee names, or
ratber their slgnificates, a little. General Lee,
the present commander of the Virginia troops,
is a loientifio engineer and a personally brave
soldier; but he has been more overrated per
haps than any man in service. Ills personal
presence Is handsome and commanding, but the
Apollo-like form doe not contain th intellect
of Jupiter. As a captain of engineers be did
well, but he disappointed the expectations of
the army when appointed a lieutenant-colonel
of cavalry and sent to the frontier. He lacks
energy for rapid combination, and is not a
highly competent general. Respectable bnt
not brilliant is the verdict. General Beaure
gard, formerly, like Lee, an engineer officer, is
by iar tbeir best man. He is cool, valiant, pre I
sclent, enduring, very muscular, and very firm1
in purpose, and withal modest. Colonel Mag
rnder, the life of a social party, 'when glasses
sparkle on the board' not more than competent
toeommand a battery, a showman, as vain aa
a peaoook U no loaa to the sef vice. The army
and his company will not grieve for him. lie
will magnify bis office in words, as be hss done
oftea before. General Joseph Joboston, twice
wounded during the war with Mexico, la a floe
o nicer, ana a loss to De regretted, lie was a
Captain of Topographical Eoglneers, Lieutenant-Colonel
of the Voltignears, and more re.
cently Quartermaster General in our army. No
man stood higher than be. Colonel May, who
received prames lor bis charge at Kesica, which
were not bis due, la a pretty good cavalry colo
oel, and nothing whatever more. His notoriety
is his only claim' to mention. Major Emory Is
a good officer, and his friends are puzzling tholr
brains to find out why be resigned. Kumor
says hs wants to return, but 'the door is shut.'
Now, look on the other aide. For among all
who remain unmentioned there is no great claim
to remarkable talent, although doubtless many
of the subordinates have energy and education
For Davis we have Scott God grant him many
days: ror Lee ana neanrcrard we have Uene
ral Mansfield, a diatinsulebed engineer, now In-
spector-General, whose command at Washing
ton bas been consummate) Delafield, long
Superintendent of the Military Academy; C, F,
smitn, i tne very prince ot light inUntry com
manders; Franklin and Meigs, recently ptomot
ed, both men of great talent, thus far kept down
by the law of aenlorUv; their namea are now
euro of distinction. For Magruder we have
Sherman, worth nrtv Mieroderai hi onl I in
his battery, where Magmder's never was; and
the men whose cenlus Is being- manifested are
sncn aa uutier. MeClellaa and oLbra, who, Hav
ing resigned in peace, are now awaiting; the call
of their country to take active service; Col.
Ueorge A. Alcuall, formerly Inspector-General
the army, baa again resumed bis sword, and
a first-rate men. He comes, like Clnolonatus,
from his plow in Chester county, and will give
Igor ana system to tne reonivlrenia troop .
'There are a few a'atistlcs worth noting. Of
the one hundred ' Officers from Virginia, not
more than forty have resigned. This is signlfl
oant that Virginia heraelt is at present under
leadership which the people. will yet throw off
"A glance at the scieniihe corps of the army
(engineers, topographical engineers and ord
nance) will ahow that nearly all the officers In
tnem are northern men, and amid the Crowd of
resignations tbey remain almost intact. They
are, of conrse, the great Intellectual resource of
an army, In which the southern force are de
noient. . Tne cry, so often beard,, that we are
left defenceleia by the resignation of the best
officers, la thus seen to be entirely without
foundation. Bat we may here offer a caution
to the StatS government not indirect! j connected
with the subject.. Let thei beat men aien of
military education, without regard to polltloal
pressure and wire pulling, be appointed to the
offices now to be filled. We shall deserve dis
aster if w make this a time for political Jub-

Cotton and its Cultivation.
:, In,.lh T" 1621, cotton seeds were brought
W Virginia, and sprang np with great vigor on
the banke of tbe Jam river-' Yel nothing was
over thought of thia till after tho war of lade
pendenee. Two things bave produced the enor
mous demand for the American ataple. . One is '
tbe cotton gin, and the nth, th. .nn..in.
ecter of the American sd. and th i.
prodqoes.r. Afrie and Asia, in fact, more than
half of both of those continents, are capable of
producing cotton, do produce, on the whole, far
more than America, and have produced It from
tbe very earliest hiitorlo records. Th.
scope has demonstrated that Ihe bandagea and
cloths wrapped aronnd tbe moat ancient mom
mie discovered In Egypt are made of cotton,
and gome of these ot a vert remarkahla flu ....
and beauty. Indeed it bas been a mail r of cone
troversy for hnndred of years,' whether cotton
or flax la the real material nsed, aod tho micro
scope even has been declared to favor the pre
tensions of both -.,
in Tarkey and In India cotton can be produced
at two pence per pound, and vet American, at
seven pence, will be preferred, because of the
two advantages named. As to oleaniog, the

uruer ana aisctpiine in picking tbe cotton, so as
not to let It fall on the ground, would almrmt
entirely cure tbe eomnlilnta made agalntt Indian
cotton. Or a system of assortment, for which
different prices would be paid, would, by de
grees, produce greater care. It bas even been
remarked that there bas been a great falling off
In tbe quality of American cotton within the
laat lew years as to this matter of cleanliness,
a large per cenatage of sand, and even stones,
having been left or put Into tbe cotton lo make
It weigh more.
. It le the quality of American cotton which
causes it to command such a higher price.
inisia paruy aepenaent npon climate, partly
upon soil, bnt chiefly upon cultivation. No finer
and more perfeot climate for the ootton slant
bat been found, or probably will be, than that
of the Southern United States. Yt even there
it grow well In each varieties of latitude, of
height above tbe sea, of soil and of moistare,
that there will doubtless be found plenty of re-
glons in India where tbe climate will do all
that climate oan. Even as to soil, we bave
aeen tbe ootton doing well In the rich black
mud of tbe Alabama prairie and canebrakes,
where It had been sown for twenty years auc
eesalvely without manure and without diminu
tlon ot crop. Aod we bave aeen it on tbe red clay
runs or ueorgia, or tbe sandy loam or Bouin
Carolina. Of coarse, the riohor tbe soil tbe
better. Cotton Is a gross feeder, and the scanty
height will give a planter a broad field, when be
baa worked bis soil too bard and too long. Some
planters are now beginning to find out (what
all will bave to come to) tbe importance ot' ma
nuring tbe aoil. . Thus far the thriftless plan of
clearing new ground bas been practised. It baa
oeen mainly because planted in virgin soil, that
American cotton baa Increased in the length of
tbe staple npon that of the old world, and Im
proved the seed and become so valuable..
nut tne care which need to be taken many
yeara ago In improving the aeed, has been the
ohief foundation of the euccets ol America.
Tbe finest aea island varietiea wre produced
by a degree of care hardly conceivable now and
quite gone ont of practice. The master of the
plantation nsed to gothroogn bis neids won
pieces of red oloth In bis hand, tying one ol'
these pieces round such plants as uppeared tbe
mostperUot In every particular. - The cotton of
these was picked and kept separate from all tbe
rest, and tbe aeeda separated by the Aand' of
bla own wife and children. These seeds were
the only ones sown, and thus, by selecting tbe
best seed, and by great care bestowed on each
successive culture, the seed bas been brought up
to Ita preient high standard. : Much of tbiacare
Is now relaxed. It is probable, bv the use of
tbe same pains and care, on a carefully enrich
ed aot), equal results might be and will be pro
duoed in parts of Asia and Africa, bat the
American cotton producer need not fear any
such competition. By the use of cultivators and
ateam, instead of the boe of the negro, greater
Cheapness can be secured, and greater perfection
in keeping down the grass and refreshing
tbe roots. PAiWefrJli Ltdger, , : ,:
Indian Base Ball.
Many yeara since, I took something of an in
terest in bare ball, and once on a time, it hap
pened that I had an opportunity of teeing it
played ''right smart" aa our western friends
bave it the player being twenty-two young
Indians, eleven on a side. Perhaps I might in
terest von meiiblv vonr reader with a abort
description of that game, for tbe player were
no alouobea, and they went in with an athletic
eagernesa that bordered on the ferocious; and
well tbey might, for at a edort distance Irom tbe
play lay a pile of blankets, hatchets, ecarlet
oloth ; and rifle, the ownership of which was
to be decided by the first one hundred points
nP'. . .. .. ..
The players on one side were an young unip
pewas; but tbe adverse pirty was composed of
Ssnecaa, Winnebagoa, and, I think, Algonquins.
The challenge had beea given by the Cbippe
was, and all that they had in tbe world was
staked on tbe result. I bave never, In ball play
of any description, seen such lightning like ac
tivity and aharp practice as waa shown la that
Indian game. This waa partly owing to tbeir
rules. For instance, tbe pitcher only passed tho
ball three times over tbe bye of the striker in any
case, wben it became necessary for the lalter to
leave rather suddenly! and the next msn
sprang to his place, bat in hand; again the ball,
thrown with full foree, passed three times, and
if the striker missed stopping1 It at the third
fass, It was high time to be traveling. Then,
f there ohanoed to be a man already on the
firat bye, fun ensued. , The unctions grant of
heartfelt satisfaction with which tbe catcher
would smack tbe bard, heavy ball Into tbo
brseohclout of a flying tedekin, was as good as
a comedy in five acts, and tbo squall of execra
tion with which tbe leathery 'female spectators
greeted every euoh mishap, must have been
blgbly gratelui to a young, brave smarting un
der defeat, and a newly raised blister pos
teriori. .- -)
la addition to the hard, straight' hit, which
wat th favorite mod of putting out, they had
two other modes: one by a clean oatch from the
bat, another by three aocoesaive misses of tbe
striker, each ball being caugbt fairly - without
rebouud, and "one man out, all oat," was tb
role. ' "' - ' ' ': ''
The came lasted several boars, and was won
by the Chippewaa, who, of course, got glorioua
at night, and aold lhir winhioga for about one
tlxth their real valuet. fc i : i -. m
It atrikes me that Ihe rule limiting the ball
to three rapid panes U a good one, obliging a
laty player to bestir himself, or lose his
chances; also, I like tbe notion of throwing the
ball at high .speed. Instead of toasing it, aa I
am told Is th custom now Nfsaiick, ia Per
