tt:u r. r.Tanuarv 6. 1803,1 says: "For twelve
rtrer. Mv liver was d
t hief w il,h and strength, aud my sk
seemed changed in its color by the bile with
which my system was overcharged. I became
subject to frequent and violent attacks of bilhous
cholic, every attack leaving me Weaker than its
predecessor. . The physicians had been able to
patch me tip a little, but my health was in a de
plorable state. I ha I taken patent medicines un
til I was tired ef them. Without energy or com
fort, I was barely able to go about a little. At
length I yielded to the earnest
friend and commenced taking the HEPATIC
PILLS, with no coulidence in them. They acted
like a charm on me. From that hour I improved.
I have persevered in their use, until now, by
God's blessing, Iain ux.ll and heart;. I had a ne
jrro man, who, as I believe, was saved from death
a dose of these Pills. My Doctor's bill was
annually from $100 to $200, but I have had no use
for a physician since. I can confidently recom
mend them as a superior family inedieme." 2

We take a mournful pleasure in in
viting the attention of our readers to
the following communication. It is
now conceded on ' all hands that the
Southern people were misguided in
their late attempt to dissolve the Union
and establish a separate government
for themselves; but the graves and the
memories of those who fought for them
ought not, therefore, to be neglected or
forgotten. The gallant men who sacri
ficed their lives in what they believed
to be the cause of their country, ought
to have Christian sepulture. Xo risrht-
minded person anywhere will object to
this. On the contrary, all of our coun
trymen, whether on the banks ot the
Mississippi or the St. Lawrence, are
ready to pay their tribute to the valor
of the Confederate dead, and would
wish to see them decently interred. And
the day will come, we trust, when the
Southron and the Northman will stand
side by side, with full hearts and un
covered heads, above the graves of the
soldiers of the rebellion and the soldiers
of the Union, and utter words like
these : " This man died in the cause of
the Union, and that man died resisting
its authority. They were brothers. They
became enemies, and fought each other
with equal valor. Those who- survive
them on both sides are again brethren.
The past is forgotten. Let all of it
that was evil sleep with these in their
graves, and let only that be remembered
which will make us think better of our
kind, and lead us to the cultivation of
the Christian virtues of peace and char
ity. The Union is immortal. The pa
tience, the fortitude, the endurance, and
the valor which characterized the sol
diers on both sides in that fraternal
conflict, belong to the whole country ;
and foreign nations may know, from
the manner in which we fought each
other, and from the firm friendship
which now subists between us, that we
would be equal at least to any defence
of our territory, our liberties, or our
honor, that might ber equired at our
We trust the Tableux will be well
attended, and that nothing will occur
to wound the sensibilities of any one :
For the Standard.
The ladies of Raleigh have, at considerable
trouble and expense, made preparations for
presenting to the entertainment of the public,
a series of TuUeux cirant, to come off at the
Chapel of the Deaf and Dumb Asylum, on
Thursday night next, the 12th instant.
When it is borne in mind to what purpose
the proceeds are to be appropriated, it is to
be hoped that every Christian hearted man,
woman and child jn the community, will
take an interest in the proposed entertain
ment so far at least as to aid and encourage
it by their presence. It is well known that
there is no other locality in the country,
where as many bloody battles were- fought
during the late war, as the neighborhood of
Winchester, Va. Owing to the circumstan
ces which usually attend the interment of
large numbers in time of war, thousands of
Confederate dead were imperfectly buried,
having been slightly covered with a few
inches of earth, which has been washed away
by the rains and floods of winter, leaving
their bones in many cases, exposed and
The ladies of Virginia have started the
project of collecting these scattered remains
ot the gallant dead together, and reintering
them in a narrow space, to be surrounded by
a permanent stone wall, where they will be
secure from outrage and exposure. Each
Southern State is to have a separate plat of
ground Vithin the enclosure, set apart to re
ceive its special dead, with a place in the
centre for the unknown, who cannot be
identified as to what State belonging.
It is to aid in defraying the expenses of
this holy undertaking,- that the proceeds of
the proposed Tableux are to be appropriated.
It appeals to the Christian sensibilities of all
persons, without involving any question as
to the political ideas of the struggle in which
these heroes fell. -- They -were our fellow
countrymen they fought and died in a
cause which they regarded as that of their
native land. Surely all persons must wish
to accord to them Christian burial, and to
pay that respect to their remains which
brave and conscientious men deserve at the
hands of the .living. With thia appeal the
ladies of Raleigh rely on the generous patron
age of the community.
The Sentinel is distressed at the pros
pect of the South being delivered over
to the tender mercies of "the radicals.".
It says if God" does not interfere in our
behalf we shall be " annihilated." Well, x
the war or secession radicals of the
South had us in hand for three or four
years. Their tender mercies were cruel.
But the Sentinel thoughtxthat was all
right. -As the bones of our people
cracked in the Davis treadmill, and as
their substance perished and passed
away, the Sentinel's partizans were de
lighted It was remarkably fine. All
who did not think it remarkably fine,
and who did not shout for these South
ern radicals, were accursed " Lincolnites
and traitors." The Sentinel must learn
to submit to " the powers that be."
They are ordained of God. The Presi
dent is submitting with good grace and
a loyal heart to the constitutional action
of the Congress. He has no idea of ob
structing any law of the land. He is
still influential and powerful. He has
many friends in the Congress who are
classed with "the radicals." If the
ponderous foot of " the radicals " should
be raised for our final " annihilation,"
the President will plead for us. We
will all plead ; and it may be that God,
who refused to hear the prayers of our
pious Divines for the success of Mr.
Davis anjl his plan of demolition, will
hearken to us, and incline the hearts of
these savage " radicals " to better things-
Let us live in hope, if we expire in des
pair. We beg our neighbors to be as
comfortable as possible, and not to al
low the condition of their livers to shape
their views of public affairs.
We are indebted to E. W. Jones,

Office of Internal Jiecenite,

The first Internal Revenue Act took effect,
so far as related to stamp duties, October 1.
1862. Instruments executed and delivered
prior to that date, though they may be re
corded afterwards, are not chargeable with
If any instrument subject to stamp duty
was issued after October 1, 1862, and prior
to August 1, 1864, unstamped, or insuffi
ciently stamped, the appropriate stamp may
be aflixed in the presence of the Court, Reg
ister, or Recorder, as provided by section
163 of the act of June 30, 1864.
Any instrument issued since August 1,
1864,'unstamped, or insufficiently stamped,
may be stamped by the Collector upon pay
ment for the proper stamp, and of a penalty
of fifty dollars ; and where the amount of
the stamp duty exceeds fifty dollars, on pay
ment also of interest on said duty at the
rate of six per cent from the day on which
the stamp should have been affixed.
If the instrument is presented to the Col
lector within twelve calendar months from
its issue, the Collector is authorized to re
mit the penalty, provided it shall appear to
his satisfaction that the omission to stamp it
was by reason of accident, mistake, inadver
tence, or urgent necessity, and without will
ful desiatTi to ecaJe or delay the payment of
If the instrument is not presented within
twelve calendar months, the penalty and in
terest must be paid to the Collector Ijefore
he can render it-valid by affixing the appro
priate stamp, without regard to the cause of
the omission to stamp it at the time of its
issue. The Commissioner has no power to
remit this penalty.
Deputy Collectors, unless acting as Collec
tors under section 39, have no authority to
affix stamps or remit penalties under section
The stamp to be affixed to any instrument
is that required by the law exi3ting at the
time when the instrument was made, signed
When an instrument is properly stamped
under either of said sections, the stamping
relates back to the time when the instru
ment was issued, and renders it from the be
ginning as valid to all intents and purposes
as if it had been duly stamped when made,
signed and issued.
The whole amount of penalties paid to
Collectors for validating unstamped instru
ments should be returned on Form 58 with
other unassessed penalties, and the money
deposited to the credit of the Treasury of
the United States with other collections.
E. A. ROLLINS, Commissioner.
Verily, the country is excited. We
advise every body to keep cool. We
have had enough of hot blood and war.
We shall always be opposed to the
" next war." We did not want the last
one. The New York JTeios, whose Ed
itors of course, took no part in the late
struggle, gives the following advice to
the President. Some friend ought to

" Radical journals have, in their recent at
tacks on Mr. Johnson, stated, in terms of ac
cusation, that he contemplates " convening
another Congress." Our own Washington
correspondent has referred to such an inten
tion on the part of the President, and in
Wednesday's Heics hints at some measure of
the same character, when he states that " Mr.
Johnson is determined to follow out this
principle to its legitimate conclusion ; and to
see to it that the Southern States are no lon
ger deprived of their rights by a factious
majority." The course indicated in these
words would, it is true, be one of apparent
boldness ; but no man ever yet has proved
himself able to grapple with revolution who
did not dare to be bold even to daring. Mr.
Thaddeus Stevens is bold ; Mr. Charles Sum
ner is bold ; Radicalism, in every instinct of
its soul, is bold ; and men may abandon all
present hope of dealing with it from the mo
ment at which Mr. Andrew Johnson shrinks
from advancing to its overthrow with the
courage of Cromwell.
The men who occupy the Legislative cham
bers of the Capitol do not, we repeat, consti
tute a Congress. Their deliberate denial of
representation to eleven States of the Union,
has, clearly, destroyed the distinctive feature
of the Congressional existence general rep
resentation. As the sworn guardian of the
rights of the States, it is, therefore, the boun-.
den duty of the President to use every law-'
ful means of restoring these States to their
place in the Federal Parliament. And, no
other means being open tor him for that act
of constitutional duty," he cannot, unless he
lend himself to the wrong by continuing to
recognize the revolutionary bodies in the
Senate Chamber and the House of Represen
tatives, avoid the obligation to convene a
Congress of the restored Union. The South
ern delegations and the constitutionalists
who now form the minority of the revolu
tionary junta at the Capitol, will respond to
the President's call, and, throwing open their
doors to all duly qualified members, will,
from that hour, have become the Congress of
the United States. Less man a quorum
though they might - at first be, they would,
from the moment of their assemblage, have
power to compel the attendance of others ;
ana tliougn in tne ena tne revoiunomsis
would probably constitute a majority in both
chambers, the country would, at all events,
have thenceforth been blessed with the fact
of a restoration of the Union ! This is, we
repeat, a sworn duty of the President ; the
necessities of political repose demand it ; the
legislative wants of the country call for it ;
and bold though it be, let Mr. Johnson re
member that no man who has dared, as he
has done, to cross the Rubicon of the revo
lutionary power, can sustain himself unless
he rush on in resolute adoption of the Ro
man text : Quid times 7 C'cesarem aehis J"
We publish below the Civil Rights
Bill as it recently passed the Congress
over the President's Veto : W
