)y n.M'nliul that the grand thorouKbtare
ur avenue of tho syatem, the bowels,
ibould be re-opened as speedily u not
ible when they become btructed. If
tiny aro not, the bile Is misdirected Into
the blood ; the liver becomes torpid ;
viscid billious matter gets into the stow
ach, and produces Indigostion ; head
aches ensue, and other symptoms are
piodueed, which a prolongation oi the
excitine cause only tends to aggravate.
The aperient properties of Hoetetter's
Stomach Bitters constitute a most ueetul
ngent in overcoming constriction of tbe
bowels, and promoting a regular habit
of body. It Is iDtloitely superior to the
drastic cathartics frequently used for the
purpose, since It doe.) not, like them, act
violently, but produce) a natural, pain

Thi Laboratory of the t,iM.
Tbe stomach Is the laboratory of the
nystftn. In which certain mysterious pro
uvws arc constantly going on. These
result in the production ot that wonder
ful vivifying agent the blood, which in a
state ot health rushes hiden with tfceele
ments of vitality to the remotest parts ol
the system. But whf.n the stomach It
aeml-pamlyied by dyspepsia, blood
manufacture It carried on imperfectly,
the circulation grows thin and
sluggish and the system Buf
fers In consequence. Moreover, indigct'
tion reacts npon tho liver and bowels,
rendering the first sluggish and the lat
ter constipated. Tho brain also tufftrs
hy sympathy, and sich headaches, sleep,
leanness and nervous symptoms are ear
gendered, II os tetter's Stomach Bitters
reforms this statn of things, gives per
niam nt tone and regularity to the stom

The sewer at the eorner ol Washings
ton avenue and Fiiteents street Is wide
open, and the water in the river being
above the level or the mouth of the
sewer, all day yesterday the water poured
Into the eitv In a Perfect stream. It
seems to us that enouith money bas been
expended In repairs on thit sewer within
the last few y:-art to render leakage iu
possible; but we may be mistaken. It
ninv be. however, that tbe sewer does
not leak, but that It has not been proper
cleaned. Perhaps the street superin
tendent can explain what is the matter
with (his sewer.
About one month ago a certain John
Drake came to our city and opened

eggs, etc., anJ said tuey were snippea

his nartuer. About a week ago Mr,
Drake, alter selling his ttock,disappeared
and yesterday the Joneeboro gentleman
whohe name has slipped our memory,
armeared in our citv In search of the
aforesaid Drake. Of course Mr. Drake
was no where to be found, snd has, It It
supposed, gone to tbe sunny south. The
Jonesboro gentlemsn states that John
Drake was no partner ol his, and that
he was paying Drake a salary for selling
his goods In this city. He further says
that no remittance was received by him
during Drake's entire stay In this city.

lovely maiden, who has been cast Into

against the encircling stone wall; at her
feet, broken by tbeir full, He some simple
wild flowers; imploringly she looks up,
seeking the hand from which they came.
Her whole life, like some gigantic pano
