It is the result of years of study aud experi

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

Breast, Uronchitis, Asthma, Whooping Cough,
Diphtheria, and is also an excellent remedy for
Diseases of the Kidneys and Female Com
plaints. Have you a cough? Have you a sore throat?
Have you any of tbe premonitory symptoms of
that most lalal disease, Consumption? Those
who should be warned by these symptoms gen
erally think light of them until it is too late.
From this fact, perhaps, more than any other,
arises the sad preveleuce aud fatality of a dis
ease which sweeps to the grave at least one-sixth
of death's victims. Consumption has destroyed
more of the human family than any other dis
ease, and the best physicians for many years
have despaired of a cure, or a remady that would
heal the lungs, but for more than two hundred
years the whole medical wwld has been impres
sed that there was a mysterous jiowef and etli
ciency in the Fine Tree Tar to heal the lungs;
therefore, they have recommended the use of Tar
Water, which iu many cases had a good effect;
but how to combine the medical properties so
as lo heal the lungs, hits ever been a mystery
until it was discovered by Dr. L. y. C. WIS
HAfiT, of Philadelphia, the proprietor of
WISHART'S FINE THE K CORDIAL.
It is now recommended and prescrilied in the
practice of a lnrge number ol the most iuteVii
genl and able physicians.
Til R TAR CORDIAL WHEN TAKEN WITH
DR. WISHART'S DYSPEPSIA FILLS,
IS AN UNFAILING CURE FOR DYSPEPSIA.
Mr. Wishart: I wish to add my testimony
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
have slept only in my chair, uot being able to
liedown for lear ol sulfocation- I havee.uiploy
ed seven of the best physicians iu Philadelphia,
who all pronounced my case incurable. I was
taken to the College, where the Faculty having
done what they could, declared iny disease an
incurable case of Asthma and Chronic Dyspep
sia, in its last stage, and that my lungs were
partially gone. -. Finding one of your circulars,
my wife procured from your store a bottle of
your Cordial. Perseveringly I used seven
bottles, and a box and a half of your Dyspep
sia Pills, when I felt that my" disease had
wholly given way, and the Cordial had giv
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-five pounds in my weight. I am able
to work and provide for my family. I send
you this true and faithful statement for the ben
efit of the suffering. Friends, call and see me,

GREAT REMEDY FOR CONSUMPTION!
Reading, Pa., April 19, 1864.
Dr. Wish art Dear Sir: One year ago the
Examining Surgeon of this district told me I
had Consumption of the Lungs, and that I could
not lie cured; and judging from all my symptoms
at that time, I myself supposed this to be true.
I was for mora than one year troubled with a
hacking cough, which gradually grew so bad
that 1 could not have a severe fit of coughing
w ithout spitting up bIo.nl in large quantities.
For months 1 could not work al. any thing,
aud was obliged to keep my bed most of the
time. While in this condition I was iu Mr.
Rowbothain's store, iu this city, and he seciug
how low 1 was, recommended mo to try your
Pine Tree Tar Cordial, lie said he had sold a
great deal of it, and that, as it had cured so many
others, he believed it would do some good. I
bought a bottle aud commenced usiug iu In a
very short tiuio 1 saw that i was getting better
very fast, and alter taking several bottles I was
entirely restored to health, so that I could work
every day at my business, which is very heavy
work, in an iron foundry, AVhen 1 comuieuced
lo use your Pine Tree Tar Cordial, my weight
was only one hundred and thirty-five jKinuds;
since the use of it I have weighed on an average
one hundred aud fifty-live. 1 shall be glad to
have you publish this, as I believe 1 should not
have been living at this time if I had not used
your great medicine, and 1 wish all who suffer
to receive its benefit.
Very truly yours,

INFALLIBLE CURE FOR BRONCHITIS.
Mr. Ward says:
Dk. WisttART Sr: I had Bronchitis, Inflammation
of the Lungs, Shortness of Breath, and Palpitation of
Ihe Heart in their worst forms. I had been treated by
several of the most eminent physicians in Philadelphia,
but they could uot stop the rapid course of my disease,
and I had dispaired of ever being restored to health. I
was truly on the verge of the grave. Your Pine Tree Tar
Cordial was hi:;Lly recommended to me by a friend. I
tried it, and am thankfnl to say that, after using lour
large aud one small bottle, I was restored to perfect
health. You can give reference to my house, No. 968

ASTHMA AND COUGH CURED.
Tim Pino Tree Tar Cordial gives instanta
neous relief iu cases of Asthma and Whooping
Cough. It often cures whooping before it runs
half its course, as it acts at once on the phlegm
and mucus, and expels them from the throat,
and the sufferer 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. .

Like Jiassing bubbles ou the stream--The
fleeing pageants of a dream
Day after day.
Our frail life-barques they swiftly glide
Adown Time's strange and stormy tide
Much of trial, grief and woe;
Little of joy the years bestow.
The idols clay,
We build, and set up iu our hearts',
They fall, and sadly hojte departs
Passing away. . .
Fricuds, fortune, fame, they all may iwhx.
Fade, "like dim shadows iu the glass"
Time cannot slay:
A youth is all too bright to last,
Age sees its pleasures in the past
"But is there then no hope beyoud'f"
Must this poor, moi tal life despond
No cheering ray,
To pierce the deep, sepulchral gloom
As we are hastening lo the tomb
. Lo! where your .Beacon light doth shine!
Mortal, the ImnwrkU shall be thine!
Death nor decay.

Illinois Black Laws Repealed.
The Black Laws of Illinois have been reneal-
ied by the Legislature. In 1653 John A. Lo
gan, now Jlajor-General, introduced a bill pro
hibiting the "immigration of free persons of col
or to the State of Illinois, or the settling of freed
slaves within the limits thereof." Two years
Liter this law was passed with supplementary
enactments, giving penal effect to it, aud these
formed the body of legislation known as the
"Black Laws." Since the war these laws have
been a dead letter, and the present Legislature,
in obedience to public sentiment, has sponged
them oft' the record of the State. It is another
alarming evidence of the progress of abolition
ism, which no conversation seems able to control.

The following appears in the St. Louis lie-
Brigadier-General Roddy, who has earned
a high reputation during the war as a partisan
cavalry commander, and who has co-operated
with Forrest in several important operations,
grew tired of the contest a few weeks ago. He
found meaus to communicate with the Federal
authorities, and through them procured a full
pardon from the President as a condition prec
edent to laying down his arms. His pardon
was forwarded to General Thomas' headquarters,
by Mr. Lincoln last week, and by this time,
doubtless, is in the hands of the repentant rebel
for whom it was prepared. He will soon be
heard of, therefore, as having resumed civil pur
suits at his old borne, which we believe was in
Tennessee. " .

to give to Uncle Sam $2,000,000,0110 in 200,000

Of the vote and its effect ou the crowed
House of Representttives, and the country, the
Washington Chrortiele thrillingly says:
When the name of John Ganson was called,
followed by a prompt aye, there waa a slight
burst of applause, promptly repressed, however,
by the Speaker. That vote settled the question.
It was oue subtracted from the previous fifty
seven, and left a clear majority. Others were
added as the roll-call proceeded. When it was
finished, the Speaker a.ked tbe Clerk "to call
his name as a member of this Houe." He vot
ed aye, and never more proudly throughout his
brilliant and successful career, and then an
nounced "that on the passage of the joint reso-,
lution to amend the Constitution of the United
States the ayes are 119. the uopb 56. The con

There was a momentaty lull, when as by an
electric shock, tho exultant shouts of the friends
of freedom rung through the Hall. It was
the sublime, st outbreak of popular enthusi
asm we ever witnessed. Men sprang to their
feet, throwing tip their arms exultantly, and
crying out at ths top of their voices. Fair wo
men waved their handkerchiefs and joined in
the loud huzzas. The floor of the House re
sounded with the clapping of hands, the stamp
ing of feet, and the incest-ant shouting of voices.
The galleries echoed back with tenfold enthusi
asm the overwhelming demonstrations on the
floor of the House. Men hugged oue another
iu an ecstacy of delight. They grappled hands
and shouted over this triumph of freedom. Ma
ny a bright eye glistened and many a heart waa
too full for utterance over this memorable hour
of our rational regeneration. When this tomn.
est of excitement, which lasted for several min
utes, and seemed to find no adequate outlet, hd
partially subsided, a motion wag made to ad
journ, and the Opposition Insisted on the aye
aud noes. The mechanical roll-call acted ass
brake, and slowly toned the . House down to
soiiiethingof its oidinary decorum, while the as
sembled crowd surged oat in the midst of a pa
triotic enthusiasm that will sever be forgotten..
This eveut will thrill the nation. It Trill car-,
ry joy to the homes of freemen every where.
For the amendment is secure. 'The State leg
islatures will promptly ratify the action of the
representatives of the people. The principle of
the Emancipation Proclamation will become
the supreme law of the land. Maine will send
endorsed the edict of freedom to the teemicg
valley of the Mississippi. It will come approv
ed from the thousands of freemeu who line the
banks of the great Father of Waters to the legis
lative assembly of the Land of Gold; and the
guardians of the national honor on the shores
of the Pacific will echo back the demand; Give
us a republic without a slave a nation of free
men without a master.
REMARKABLE FOUNTAIN IN FLORIDA.
Taking a narrow path we crossed through
some dense underwood, and all at once, stood
ou the banks of the Wakulla Spring. There
was a basin of water one hundred yards in di
ameter, almost circular. The thick bushes were
almost growing to the water's edge, and bowing
their heads under the nnrippled surface. We
stepped into a skiff and pushed off. Some im
mense fishes" attracted our attention, and I
seized a spear to strike them. The boatman
langhed, and asked how far beneath the surface
I supposed they were. I answered about four
feet. He assured that they were at leatt twen
ty feet from me; and it waa so. The water is of
the most wonderful transparency. Dropping an
ordinary pin in tbe water forty feet deep we
saw its head with perfect distinctness as it lay
on the bottom. As wo approached the center I
noticed a jagged, grayish limestone rock beneath
us pierced with holes; one seemed to look into
unfathomable abyss. From its porge comes
forth with immense velocity a living river.
Pnshingon just beyond its month I dropped a
ten cent piece into the water, which is there
one hundred and ninety feet in depth, and I
clearly saw it shinicg on the bottom. This
seems incredible. I think the water possesses
a magnifying power, for I am confident that the
piece could not be seen so distinctly from a
tower one hundred and ninety feet high. We
rowed to the north side and suddenly we per
ceived in the water, fish which were darting
hither and thither, and long flexible roots, lux
uriant grass on the bottom all arrayed m the
most beautiful prismatic hues. The gentle
swell occasioned by the boat gave to tho whole
an undulating motion. Deathlike stillness
reigned around, and a more lairy scene 1 never
So great is the qnantity ot water here poured
forth that it forms a river of itself large enough
to float flat-boats with ceUoo. The planter who
lives here has thus transported his cotton to St.
Harks. Near the fountain we saw some of the
remains of a mastadon which had probably
drank from it. The bones were of immense)
size, aud showed the animal to have been one
of the largest of his class. Travels )t Florida.
