- FIRST PREMIUM -
COOK STOVE.
THE time ha. arrived when almost everybody wants
A. FIBST . CLASS
COOK STOtttt
Therefore we are happy to announce that we have secured
the sale of th.
"AMERICAN,"!
which has taken the PREMIUM OYER ALL OTHER
STOVES at th. New York State Fair for the years 1862
and 1863.
Economy is Wealth,
which will be fully demonstrated by BUYING AN
AMERICAN HOT AIR
UEAR PACHAS. C0,UAXai
C00KINGST0VE.
AS it wiU bake, broil and roast better than any other
Stove, with a saving of 26 per cent in fuel, and a very
large percentage in convenience.
They have the foUowing advantages:
1st. They are constructed with a view of great dura
bility; all the plate, exposed to the fire are made of an
extra thickness.
2d. The flues are lined with non-conducting cement,
thereby aDplving the heat directly to the oven, and the
oven can be heated and kept in baking order with less fu
el than any other Stove.
3d. They have a hot air draft, which not only make,
the fuel burn freely, and last longer, but adds to the
heating and baking facilities.
4th. They consume all the gasBes from the fuel, there
by adding largely to the amount of heat obtained from
the amount of fuel used.
5th. The Stove is made, mounted and finished in the
most superior manner. The oven i. large and well-ventilated.
The Stove is convenient in form, and marie for
use: to adopt the language of some who have used this
Stove, "It will do more work with less luel than any other-Store."

TAR CORDIAL.
13 THE BEST REMEDY FOR THROAT AND LUNG
DISEASES!
It is the vital Drincinle of the Dine tree obtain'
ed by a pecular process in the distillation of the
tar, by which its highest medical properties are
re tain ea.
It is the onlv safe and reliable rerueflv wliir-L
has ever beeu prepared from the juice of the
pine iree.
It invigorates the digestive organs and re
stores the appetite.
It strengthens the debilitated system.
It purifies and enriches the blood, and expels
from the system the corruption which scrofula
breeds. , . . .. . - .
It dissolves the mucus or phlegm which stops
luc uir piuomgus oi uie lungs.
V Its healing principles act upon -the" irritated
surface of the lougs and throat, penetrating to
each, diseased part, relieving pain and subduing
lnnammauoD.
It is the result of years of study and experi
nient, aud it is ottered to the afflicted with the
positive assurance of its power to cure the
following diseases, if the patient has not too
long delayed a resort to the means of cure: Con
sumption of the Lungs, Coughs. Sore Throat and
Breast, Bronchitis, Asthma, Whooping Cough,
Diphtheria, and is also an excellent remedy lor

arises the sad prevelence and fatality of a dis
ease which sweeps to the grave at least one-sixth
of death's victims. Consumption has destroved
more of the human family than anv other dis
ease, aud the best physicians for many years
uave uespairea oi a cure, or a remady that would
heal the lungs, but for more than two hundred
years the whole medical world has been impres
sed that there was a mysterous power and effi
ciency in the Pine Tree Tar to heal the lungs;
therefore, they have recommended the use of Tar
Water, which in many cases had a good, effect;
but how to combine the medical properties so
as to heal the lungs, has ever lieen a mystery
until it was discovered by Dr. L. Q. C. WIS
HART, of Philadelphia, the proprietor of
WISHART'S PINE TREE CORDIAL, j
It is now recommended and prescribed in the
practice of a large number ot the most intelli
gent and able physicians.
THE TAR CORDIAL WHEN TAKEN WITH
DR. VVISHART'S DYSPEPSIA PILLS,
IS AN UNFAILING CURE FOR
PEPSIA.
Ma. Wishakt: 1 wish to add mv testimtinv
to the hundreds you receive to the healing prop
erties of your Pine Tree Tar Cordial. For fif
teen years a sufferer, ten years of that time I
lave slept only in my chair, not beimr r1,U to
lie down for tear of suffocation. I have emnlnv-
ed seven of the best physicians in Philadelphia,
who au prunouncea my case incurable. 1 was
taken to the College, where the Facultv having
done what they could, declared jny disease an
incurable case oi Asthma and Chronic Dyspep
sia, in its last 6tage, and that my lungs were
partially gone. Finding one of your circulars,
my wire procurea irom your store a bottle of
your Cordial. Perseveringly I used seven
bottles,' and a box and a half of your Dyspep
sia PUIS, When 1 felt that mv diseaiw hurl
wholly given way, and the Cordial had eiv-
en me new vigor and strength. I continued
to improve, and for the past three months I have
been able to sleep in my bed as soundly as I
ever did. I am now well, and have gained
twenty-live pounds in my weight. I am able
to work aud provide for my family. I send
you this truo and faithful statement for the ben

GREAT REMEDY FOR CONSUMPTION!
Reading, Pa., April 19, 1864.
Da. Wishart Lear Sir: One vear airo the
Examining Surgeon of this district told me I
had Consu mption of the Lungs, and that I could
not be cured; and judging from all my symptoms
at that time, I myself supposed this to be true.
I was for more than one year troubled with a
hacking cough, which "gradually grew so bad
that I could not have a severe fit of coughing
imuui npiitiug up uiuuu iu jarge quantities.
For months 1 could not work at anything.
and was obliged to keep my bed most of the
time- While in this condition I was in Mr.
Rowbot ham s store, in this city, and he seeing
how low I was, recommended me to try your
Pine Tree Tar Cordial. He said he had sold a
great deal of it, and that, as it had cured so many
others, ne Deneveci il wouia ao some gooa. l
bought a bottle and commenced using it. In a
vey short time 1 saw that 1 was getting better
very fast, aud after taking several bottles I was
entirely restored to health, so that I could work
every day at my business, which is very heavy
work, m au iron lounary. W hen 1 commenced
to use your Pine Treelar Cordial, my weight
was only one hundred and thirty-live pounds;
since the use of it I have weighed on an average
one hundred and fifty-five. I shall be glad to
have you publish this, as X believe I should not
have been living at this time if I had not used
your great medicine, and I wish all who suffer
to receive us oeneni.
Very truly yours,
Capt. Samuel Hae.nke.

Cordial, which was recommended for my daughter by
Mr. J. A. Hall, of this city, has cured her of a eough of
more than fire months' standing. I had thought her be
yond cure, and had employed th. best medical aid with
out any benefit. I can cheerfully recommend it to th.
public as a aale and .are remedy for thou similarly af
flicted, as I know of many other case, beside, that of my
daughter, that it has cured of long standing coughs.

several of the most eminent physicians in Philadelphia,
but they could not atop the rapid course of my disease,
and I had d is paired of ever being restored to health. I

ASTHMA AND COUGH CURED.
The Pine Tree Tar Cordial gives instanta
neous relief in cases of Asthma and Whooping
Cough. It often cures whooping before it runs
half its course, as it acts at once ou the phlegm
aud mucus, nud expels them from the throat,
and the suiterer is relieved. In case of Asthma,
use Dr. Wishart s Dyspepsia Pills with the Cor
dial, as they have never been known to fail to
cure that disease.
DR. WISHART'S PINE TREE TAR
C0RDIAL will positively cure the following
diseases:. Consumption, it not beyond the pow
er of medicine; Inflammation of the Lungs,
Coughs, Sore Throat and Breast, Bronchitis,
Asthma, and an unfailing remedy for female
complaints.
The above are u few among the thousands
whom this great remedy has saved from an un
timely grave.
' - We have thousands of letters from Physicians
and Druggists who have prescribed and sold the
Tar Cordial, saying that they have never used
or sold a medicine which gave such universal
satisfaction.
REMEMBER THAT
The Tar Cordial when taken in connection with
Dr. Wishart's Dyspepsia Pills, is an infallable
cure for Dyspepsia.
BEWARE OF COUNTERFEITS!

Home and Wife on Saturday Night.
Some one with a heart to appreciate thechoice
blessiugs of life, paints a glowing picture of the
delights of home were love rules supreme. Hap

angel in it of a Saturday night. A house, no
matter how little, provided it wUi hold two or
so no matter how furnished, provided, there is
a hope in it; let the wind blow; close the cur
tains! What if they are calicoes or plain, with
out border or tassels, or any such thing! Let
the rain come down heap up the fire. No mat
ter if you haven't a candle to bless yourself with,
for what a beautiful light, glowing coals make,
reddening, clouding sunset through, the little
room; just enough to talk by; uotloud aa iu the
hurrying words but softly, whisperingly with
pauses between them, for the form -without and
the thoughts within to fill up. Then wheel
the sofa round before the fire, no matter if the
sofa is a settee, uncushtuned at that, if so, may
be it is just loug enough for two, or say two and
a hall in it. How sweetly the music of silver
bells, from time to time, falls on the listeu-
ingearthen? How mournfully sweet theehimes
of the "days that are no more." Under such
circumstances, and at such a time, -one caa get

IDAHO.
The Governor of Idaho gives theJollowin" in
his recent message:
The vast, uumeasurable structural wealth em
bodied within our confines, so nicely balanced,
of mineral, farming and grazing interests, with
mountain forests and timber land, aud water
power of every description, eminently adapt US
for a self-supporting community. The fertile
bottom-lands of the St. Joseph, Oour D' Alone,
Spokane, Lo-too, Palouse, Lapwall, Koos-koos-kia,
Nat-o, Payette, Wiser, Boise, Malade, aud
their tributaries, would alone sustain, properly
cultivated, a population larger than most of the
Atlantic States; while ranges of nutritious 'bunch
grass,' suitable for herds, cover millions of acres.
Add to their placer diggings, of greater or less
richness, extending for hundreds ofsauare miles.
with well-defined gold and silver bearing quartz
ledges, unrivalled by those of Mexico or Peru;
a glorious climate, with Syrian summers and
Italian winters, bespeak- the permanence of our
untold resources, and the prosperity that surely
and postively await their development.
DRESS AND DISEASES.
There is no truth more firmly established
among medical men than that disease follows
fashions as much as bonnets do. When thin
shoes prevail, consumption is the prevailing ep
idemic wilu lemaies in every laahiouable com
munity of the country. When lownecked dresses
are in the ascendant, sore throat and quinsy are
the raging maladies. When ''bustlus" and
"bishops" made their appearance, spinal affec-

is denoted by collapsed lungs, dyspepsia, and a
general derangement of the digestive organs.
Indeed, so intimately are dress and disease con
nected, that the doctor says that all he needs to
determine what a majority of the women are dy
ing out, ia to nave an inventory oi their ward
robe handed to him.
Cherish the little girls, dimpled darlings, who
tear their aprons, and cut the table-cloths, and
eat the sugar, and are themselves the sugar and
salt of life! Let them dress and undress their
doll babies to their heart's content, and don't
tell them Tom Thumb and Red Riding Hood
are fiction, but leave them alone till they find it
out, which they will too soon. Answer all the
funny questions they ask, and don't make fun
of their baby theology; and when you mut
whip them, do it so that if you should remem
ber it, it would not be with tears, for a great
many little girls loose their hold suddenly be
fore the doors from which they have escaped is
shut, and find their way back to the angels.
So be gentle with the darlings, and see what a
track oi sunshine will lollow in the wake of the
little bobbing heads that daily find a great many
hard problems to solve. ...
CASTALIA SPRINGS.
The Sandusky Register in speaking of the Cas
talia Springs, in the vicinity of that city, has the
following in reference to ap enterprise of a Cleve
land gentleman:
These waters have been tested and found good
for bleaching purposes, and within the hut year
the upper water power has been purchased by
a Mr. Howard, of Cleveland, and he has erected
aud is now just ready to start a large mill for
the manufactory oi paper on an extensive scale,
he having converted the mill aud "old factory"
into buildings for that purpose.
THE COTTON SUPPLY.
Owing to the increased supplies from all quar
ters and the permanent decline of demand from
economizing of material and substitutes of oth
er fibres for clothing, the supplies of cotton for
the iintisli market, independent of this country,
are now" in excess of the requirements, and the
stock is constantly accumulating. The estima
ted importion into Great Brilan in 1865 is 3,500
000 bales, against 2,600,000 bales in leS64. Bos
ioiiJournaL Earnest efforts are about to be made in Spain
for the abolition of Slavery in her colonies. In
Madrid an anti-Slavery society has been form
ed, under the designation of Ea Sociedad Abo
Iwionista Espanalo, consisting of men of all po
litical parties, who have adopted as their funda
mental rule that politics shall not be brought
into any of their discussions, but that the great
question shall be treated upon the broad basis
of humanity, justice and religion. The society
has appointed a committee to inquire into the
results of emancipation wherever it has lieen
carried into effect, and to report upon the best
means of abolishing Slavery in the Spanish
colonies. From Cuba we learn that an anti-
Slavery sentiment is rapidly spreading among
the native population. A considerable num
ber of newspapers advocate emancipation, the
probability ot which is improving Irom day to
day. New YorU Tribune.
The following little fable contains a good deal
of wisdom; and editors, clergymen indeed, all
classes in society will do well to remember it,
and govern themselves accordingly: A skunk
once challanged a lion to a single combat. The
lion promptly declined the honor of such a
meeting; "How," said the skunk, "are you
afraid?" "Very much so," quoth the lion, "for
you would only gain fame by having the honor
to fight a lion, while every one who met me for
a month to come would know that I bad been
in company with a skunk,"
A REMARKABLE PROPHECY.
long ago was found at Toledo, in
Spain, in a monastery, a paper containing
the following prophecy :
"In the far West beyond the ocean will
rise a nation which will be great in power
and wealth; and Satan, in one of his walka
to and fro on the earth will observe this
nation, and, determined to destroy their
happiness, will there send two monsters,
one to the North and the other to the
South, and he will give them strawberries,'
and they will eat them ; and, after they
have eaten, they will feel a great thirstv
not to be quenched with anything else but
blood. They will, therefore, cause the
brother to slay the brother, the father to
slay the &on, and the son the father, and
they will drink the blood of the slain, and
it will bring lamentation and wailing
throughout the land. And, when the
time is fullfilled, there will rise a strong
man in the North who will take the mons
ters and bind them and draw them into
the sea, where it is the deepest, and peace
and happiness will again prevail through
out, and the people will praise the Lord.
It is said the monks in said monastery
maintain that this prophecy was written
before the discover- of America bv
Christopher Columbus ; that Ferdinand
aud Isabella were, in the main, induced by
it to lit out the ship for Columbus, and
that the first part of it too is fulfilled in
America, and that the other part soon will
come to pass.
The prayer offered by Rev. Dr. Eliot iu
th Missouri Convention, after the adoption
of the Emancipation Ordinance, is a model
in its way. The reverned gentleman hap
pened tn the hall at the time, and was on
motion of Mr. Owen invited to offer a
prayer of thanksgiving. It was as fol
lows: Most Merciful God, before whom we are
all equal we look up to Thee who hast de
clared thyself our Father and our Helper
and our strong defence, to thank Thee that
Thou art no respecter of persons ; to thank
Thee that Thou didst send Jesus Christ
into the world to redeem the world from
sin; that He was the friend of the poor;
that He came to break manacles off the
slave, "that the oppressed might go free."
We thank Thee that this day the people
of this State have had Grace given them
to do as they would be done by. We
prav that Thy blessing may rest upon the
proceedings of this Convention; that no
evil may come to this State from the
wrong position of those who do not agree
with the action of to-day, but that we, all
of us, may be united to sustain that which
is now the law of the land. We pray, 0
God, but our hearts are too full to express
our thanksgiving. Thanks be to God for
this day; that light has now come out
friun darkness; that all things are now
profnising a future of peace and quietness
to our distracted State. Grant that this
voice may go over the whole land, until
the Ordinance of Emancipation is made
perfect, throughout the btates. V e ask
it through thfl name of our dear Lord and
Redeemer. Amen.
A JUDICIAL STRAW.
The United States Supreme Court has
at least recognized West Virginia by put
ting it down on tha Docket as one of the
states. The Cincinmati (razette Washing
ton correspondent sacys :
It w ill be remembered- that some time
ago, Associate Justice Catron, of the Su
preme Bench, interrupted the hearing of a
cause in a District Court in lennessee,
when the counsel happened to use the word
"vv est Virginia, by exclaiming, "VirJ::iia,
sir, if you please. There is no kucIi State
as West Virginia." Subsequently,
believe, some questions kav-riigbeen asked,
Justice Catron re-affirmed, more elaborate
ly, the opinion that the eii'ort to div ide the
State of Virjrinia was unconstitutional and
that no such State as West Virginia had
any constitutional existence, or could be
recognized by the Court. Meanwhile the
question had not been raised before the
lull Bench.
Mr. Chase's first official act as Chief
Justice was to hold a consultation with
his Associates about the call of States on
the docket The Clerk was arranging the
list, and Mr. Chase directed him to insert
West Virginia in its proper place. With
the exception of Mr. Catron all the Jus
tices were present, and all concurred in
the acrion. One question, therefore, upon
which Mr. Thad Stevens and others have
been accustomed to hold high debate in
Congress, without ever having been
formally raised, may still be considered as
henceforth practically ret adjudicata.
to
is
Arming Slaves in the South.
In the phrenzy desperation, the rebel
leaders at Richmond look to the arming of
the slaves as their' last hope. They evi
dently feel that it is applying the match to
the magazine, but necessity know no law.
A bavannah letter of December 31st,
shows how the proposed arming of slaves
is regarded in that city and in Georgia.
The writer remarks:
Old citizens here answer you with a
grim smile when you ask them whether
Jeff Davis' will ever arm the slaves.
"Whv," say they, "we hav e lived in a per
fect dread of them as it is, and what would
we do if they were armed.
The plain truth is, there are not three
sensible men in Georgia but know that the
day the South arms her slaves the rebel
lion is at an end. And this is not all; it
will be the bloodiest termination that ever
rebellion had in any country. Let him
who doubts this, talk a little while with
the negroes who have come from the best
regulated plantations. No matter how
ignorant they are in all other things, they
are posted on the "main question." They
have it hrmiy. hxed in their heads that the
North is on their side, and all the eloquence
of rebeldom will never be able to dislodge
that idea. ,
In the entire march through this State,
wherever our army has touched, the ne
groes were always found to be posted.
And right in the heart of Georgia there is
a wide spread organization among the
slaves, which only lacks efficiency because
it lacks arms. Were it proper to do so, I
could give the names of towns in which
compainies are formed and drilling at
every opportunity. All they ask is arms.
Citizens here tell me that after our army
had arrived before Savannah, even' while
Hardee was here, the people went fo bed
every night in dread lest.the negroes should
rise. This in one of the reasons why our
army has met with such cordial reception.
The people now feel safe, not only because
they think Sherman is sufficiently power
ful to protect them, but also because they
know the negroes are now satisfied, being
with those whom they regard as their
friends and deliverers.

THE RESULTS OF REUNION.
There has been a new discovery of
tVmerica. ' The country has found ut its
strength. Before the war this vast nation
lay streched along the continent undefended
fort, or navies, without an army, with
millions of brave men, but with only a few
thousands of soldiers. Commerce, agri
culture, niauulactures, invention, educa
tion, engrossed all its energies; to war it
gave no thought. ! England and France
were rivals in the creation of navies, but
the safety of American commerce wax
trusted to the comity of nations. America
was a giant without armor, and in a strug
gle with other Powers brute strength must
first have poorly supplied the want of
discipline and armament. - Yet the nation
was radically war-like, having the pride
and spirit that bekmg to youth and mifrht.
The rebellion has changed it Four years
of war have equipped America from head
to toot m armor, have placed new and ter
rible weapons in her hand, and made her
appear to the world like a new Rome, or
like France in the great days of the first
Napolean. ; . '
But the immense forces raised in the
North and South are marshalled against
each other: the great forts are defended by
Americans"agaijist Americans ; the Ameri
can navy blockades American coast;
American pirates prey upon American
merchantmen; American cities are be
sieged by American armies, and every
battle tliat is fouzht is at once a victory
and a defeat to Americans. And all this,
for what J --To-divide the greatness of the
continent, and place two rival American
nations side bv side, with an imaginary
bounty line, with perpetual cause of quarrel,
and to the plain advantage of Europe.
Sooner or later this struggle must end ; we
believe it can only end iti the acknowledg
ment by all Americans of the Government
of the JUnitetLStates; when this is done,
and the armies of the North and South are
marshaled under one flag, then the results
of reunion will arouse the fear and admira
tion of the world. Philadelphia Press.
A Country Postmaster's Report.
Speaking of Postmasters, reminds us of
one that figrrred over in Fulton County, in
the reign of Old Buck. . He was a new
appointee, and withal a little unsettled in
his mind respecting the duties of his posi

volved about $30 business yearly. Mr.
Jenkins for such was his nanie-had
read in the instructions- sent him, that he
must make a "quarterly report" to head

THE GREAT WEST.
A trip a thousand miles through the
heart of the West awakens a kindling
thought of the greatness of the Republic.
The West is the Empire : a fact unacknowl
edged at the East, because the East knows
not the West. But an impartial traveler
soon perceives that the East is not the
country. New York and New England
are but the thumb and forefinger; the
West is the rest of the hand.
. A Western visit in summer is beet for
seeing the country ; in winter, best for see
ing the people. Aud are they not the
heartiest, friendliest, most hospitable of
the human race ? What a "Scotch wel
come" maybe, we know not; but if better
than a Webtern welcome, it is better than
a plain man deserves. Jostle a Westerner
in the street, and at once you are acquin
tances: meet him the next day, and you
are old friends. A shake of the hand in
the West has more gripe in it than be
tween New York and Bangor. Child of
the East, the West is the chief crown of

that time there were nineteen blockade
runners in that port, taking in cargoes of
arms, ammunition, medicines, clothing and
provisions, with the intention of running
them into Wilmington. The letter also

ANECDOTE OF GEN. GRANT.
In a late conversation with a gentleman
his headquarters, Gen. Grant said:
"Shernan has fewer faults than any man
ever knew." Gen. Vodges, who was
professor of mathematics when the Lieuten
ant General was a cadet, was present at
the interview. "I thank you," said Gen
eeal Grant to Vodges. "for advancing me
in my studies after I had been put back

so frightened that I could not answer two

smile overspread his features as he thought
of his first and only failure in life.
UNRAVELING.
A man coming home late one night, a
little more than "half-seas over," feeling
thirsty, procured a glass of. water and
drank it In doing so he swallowed a
small ball of silk that lay in the bottom of
the tumbler, the end catching in his teeth.
Feeling something in his mouth, and not
knowing what it was, he began pulling at
the end, and the little ball unrolling, he
soon had several feet hi his hand, and still
no end apparently. Terrified, he shouted
at the top of his voice, "Wife ! wife ! I say,
wife, come hers' I am unravelling P
