$200 Saved. Rev. John W. Potter, Snow
Kill, N. C, January 6, 18C3, says: "For twelve
years I was a great sutTerer. My liver was dis
eased. I lost my flesh and strength, and my Bkin
seemed changed in its color by the bile with
which my system was overcharged. I became
subject to frequent and violent attacks of billions
cholic, every attack leaving mo weaker than its
predecessor. The physicians had been able to
patch me np a little, but my health was in a de
plorable state. I ha I taken patent medicines un
til I was tired e-f them. Without energy or com
fort I was barely able to go about a little. At
length I yielded to the earnest persuasion of a
friend and commenced taking the HEPATIC
PILLS with no confidence in them. They acted
like a charm on me. Prom that hour I improved.
I have persevered in their use, until now, by
God's blessing, lam well and hearty. I had a ne
gro man, who, as I believe, was saved from death
by a dose of these Pills. My Doctor's bill was
annually troni $100 to S.300, but I have had no use
for a physician since. I can confidently recom
mend them as a superior family medicine."

RALEIGH, IV. C.
SATURDAY, - - - APRIL 21, 1860.
We arb sending out prospectuses of the Stan
dard to our friends, and trust they will aid lis in
extending the circulation of the paper.
Subscribers will please look out for the cross
mark, and promptly renew. The mail iacilities
are so limited, and mouey is so scarce, that it is
no easy task to keep a newspaper establishment
iu the South iu a nourishing condition.
Wc would respectfully and earnestly
call the attention of the Postmaster
Genera to the vant of mail facilities in
this State, and especially to that por
tion of it lying west of Jlorganton. -We
learn there is no regular mail to
Asheville, and that the whole region
north, .west, and southwest of that place,
which can be reached alone from Ashe
ville, is destitute of mails. The same
is true, to a considerable extent, of the
Wilkes and Ashe portion of the State.
In these portions of the State the test
oath is not so much in the way as in
some other portions, for the people as a
general rule were more devoted to the
government during the rebellion than
they were elsewhere. An active, ener
getic Agent, like Dr. Jobe, if fully au
thorized to do so by the department,
could very soon organize the mail ser
vice in the mountain country. Dr. Jobe
has the advantage also of an intimate
acquaintance with that portion of the
State, and he would encounter but little
difficulty in finding both contractors
and postmasters who could take the
oath. "We know not only the disposi
tion but the anxiety of 3Ir. Dennisonto
extend mail facilities to our people. We
trust his recommendation for the modi
fication of the test oath so far as con
tractors and postmasters arc concerned,
will be carried out by Congress. We
do not see how that body can reasona
bly expect our people to form a clear
and intelligent opinion of public affaire
while they are deprived of the ben
efit of newspapers. The people are re
quired to submit to the government, and
to such laws as have been, or may be
passed, without knowing what the pol
icy of the government or what these
laws are. Is this just or reasonable ?-
They will probably be called upOn to
vote again next August ; but how can
it be expected that the great mass of
them will vote understandingly when
they have had no means of informing
themselves as to the real condition of
public affairs ? We are willing to be
governed, but we want the means of
knowing what is required of us.
The Sentinel says if the Southern
States are to be judged by the state
ments of " Gov. Hamilton of Texas,
Gov. Holden of North-Carolina, Gov.
Brownlow of Tennessee, aud Gov. Pier
pont of Virginia," and by " such wit
nesses as Gens. Thomas, Custer, Grier
son," then " we may look for nothing,
if God aud the people do not interfere,
but chains, poverty and nun."
When did Gov. Holden ever propose
chains, poverty and ruin" for North-
Carolina? lie served the President
and the State faithfully for seven months,
and did all he could to relieve and ben
efit our people without regard to party.
This will not be denied. If " chains,
poverty, and ruin" are in reserve for
our people, Gov. II. is not responsible
for it. No citizen of the State feels
more acutely than he does the present
unfortunate and unhappy condition of
our people, and he would do any thing,
or make any sacrifice to relieve them.
He has not changed. His views are
just what they were when he returned
from Washington in June last. He
has the same confidence in the Pres
ident now that he had then. But
he fears that the country is becom
ing more and more sectionalized.
He feels that invective and bitter abuse
are widening the breach. He appre
hends that the weaker section, having
greatly provoked the stronger, is in
more danger now than it has ever been
heretofore. It is useless to say how this
has been done. He is not disposed to
assail any one, or to impeach motives.
He would simply deal with things as
they are. "We must 0 back to the be
ginning, and do our first works over
again. Wo- must eease to denounce,
aBuse, and defy the Northern people.
The great object, is to get Sack in to, the
; Union. ' We should . sacrifice 'every
thing to that. ' Gov. H. is a Unionman
under any and all circumstances hut he
can never be indifferent to his State.
He loves his State and her people. There
is not a citizen within her limits whom
he would wilfully injure. He desires
the highest good of his State, but he
feels that this desire is vain as long as
the present condition of ,, things shall
Gov. Graham and Gen. - Cxingman.
These distinguished gentlemen were both in
our city on Saturday and both seemed in
good health and spirits. " We had the pleas
ure of a social chat with our Senator and
Ex-Governor. We only reiterate our own
sentiments, and express those of the State,
when we say we have every confidence in
his opinions on the great leading questions
of the dav. He is a far-seeing statesman,
and, to sum up briefly, his sentiments, we
think we exnress them in savinsr. "Let us
bide our time." Patience, perseverance and
Andy Johnson will, with God's help, set us
all right soon we nope. Vhariotte limes.

man to be admitted to his seat ?
" Let us bide our time." What does
that mean ?
" Should Judge Fowle's decision be in ac
cordance with the intimation he has thrown
out. it will be the duty of the Governor to
' , 1 A
compel lien, ituger to surrender maj. uee 10
the civil authorities." Wilmington Journal.
Is the State now in a condition to en
able the Governor to compel a Major
General of the army of the United
States to do a certain thing ?
" On last week, (so we were informed by
the able and courteous Editors of the Senti
nel, in whose office we spent profitably and
llcasantly a half hour,) a writ of habeas
corpus was sued out and served on General
linger, requiring him to produce the body
of Major Gee before Judge Fowle, which the
Military Commander of the Department of
North-Carolina refused to obev, alleging
that he held the prisoner under orders from
the United States government, whereupon
Mr. Holland, counsel for Maj. Gee, moved an
attachment against Gen. Ruger. Judge
Fowle stated that according to his view of
the Proclamation declaring Peace, the peo
ple of North-Carolina were remitted to all
their civil rights, among which are, immuni
ty from trials by military tribunals. But in
order to investigate fully the authorities, and
so forth, he would withhold his nnal decis
ion until the 28th inst.
The Governor will take steps to have the
whole matter brought promptly to the atten
tion of the President, and thereby get an au
thoritative exposition of what the Proclama
tion does mean. It is a question of great
importance, and the people should know as
soon as possible what their stutus is under it,
and Governor Worth will act for the interest
and safety of all, in the right way, and at the
right time. The people may rest assured
that their affairs are committed to honest
and capable hands, and that Gov. Worth
" knows their rights, and knowing dare
maintain them." " Charlotte Times.
" Knowing dare maintain them."
Whut does that mean ? " Gov. Worth
will act for the interest and safety ol all,
in the right way and at the right time."
What will he do ? Will he " compel
Gen. Ruger to surrender Maj. Gee to
the civil authorities ?"
" If these things be so in the green
tree, how will they be in the dry ?"
There are pens and tongues that are
)ing incalculable injury to the cause
The Legislature of Tennessee has
passed the franchise bill. The vote in
the House was, yeas 41, nays 15. This
bill is very similar in character to the
federal test-oath. No person can vote
or hold office in Tennessee who took
part in the rebellion. If the provisions
of this bill be as stringent as the test
oath it is unjust to many Union men.
It was opposed by good Union men,
but passed by a large majority. This
secures the permanent control of Tennes
see to Gov. Brownlow and his friends.
Stringent as this bill is, and unjust as
it is to many Union men, it will not be
likely to injure the prospects of Tennes
see for admission to her full privileges
in the Union. It is supposed that the
members from tliat State, all of whom
can take the oath, will be admitted du
ring the ensuing month.

the Senate not only accepted him as such,
but have entrusted to him dictatorial powers.
Against his will they have declared that he
shall imprison all State Judges who disagree
with him about the negro ; they have declar
ed that he shall fill thousands of offices with
his favorites; that he shall have supreme con
trol of the Southern States ; that he shall use
to an arbitrary extent his power as comman-der-in-cheif
of the army andnavy of the Uni
ted States. These are momentons powers to
entrust to a single individual; but we hope
President Johnson has the sagacity to exer
cise them with prudence and judgement.

Effects of Wine on diseases. Dr. Gale
observes, in his treatise on disease, that the
great use of wine in France is supposed to
have abated the prevalence of the gravel. In
the French colonies, where pure wine is more
used than in the .English, as well as in 1 ur
key, where Samburg port wine is the princi
pie beverage, not only the gout but the grav
el are scarcely known. Dr. La Pote relates
as an extraordinary instance of the effects of
the Samburg port wine on gout, the case of
Dr. Daveran, who was attacked with the gout
at the age of 25, and had it severely until he
was upwards of 50, with chalk stone in the
joints of his hands and feet, but four years
preceding the time when his case had been
given to Dr. La Pote to lay before the public.
he had, by advice, used Samburg port wine
and had no return of the gout after. Low-
We have fallen on pestilential days.
Cholera in the Orient, Italy and South France,
Trichina in Germany, Rinderpest in Rus

sheep plague is added these are not all.
Even the birds in Italy are dying by thou

the coast has made shrimps of the French
oysters. Neio York Tribune.
Conversion qf Chtldiien. How early
should we expect the conversion of our chil
dren ? Just as early as we begin to lab or and
pray in earnest for it. The heathen mother
takes her baby to the idol temple, and tench
es it to clasp its little hands before its fore
head, in the attitude of prayer, long before
it can utter a word. As soon as it can walk
it is taught to gather a few flowers or fruits
or put a little rice upon a banana leaf, and
lay them upon the altar before the idol god.
As soon as it can utter the names of its pa
rents so soon it is taught to offer up its peti
tion before the images. Who ever saw a hea
then child that could speak, and not pray ?
Christian mothers, why is it that so many
children grow up in this enlightened land
without learning to pray ? Why is it that
when called upon to address a supplication
to Him who made and sustains them, they so
often blush and wish to be excused ? Is not
our God able to hear and answer our prayer ?
Providence . " He that watches provi
dences will have providences to watch. " It
becomes us to notice two remarkable circum
stances in the history of our impoverished

1. At the close of the war we lacked labor.

much required, and for the planting of which
the advanced stage of the year barely gave
our returned soldiers time ; when lo ! the sea
son was propitious for grass and this impor
tant gram almost beyond precedent : and in
spite of all these difficulties, many of- the
most desolated parts of the land had bread
enough and to spare, besides abundance of
other products in their season.
2. At the opening of the present vear we
iountl ourselves environed vi ich such difficul
ties as to make us look forward with painful
anxiety to the prospects of the farmer upon
tne result ot whose labors, capital and com
merce, and general prosterity inevitably de-
pena. V nether we borrow, or beg we must
be poor until we dig wealth from the ground.
A late Spring, such as we often have, would
have sunk us, by this time, into deep despon
dency ; but a more favorable season for win
ter ploughing and early planting and sowing.
is probably not witnin the memory ol the
oldest farmer. The aspect of the fields gives
hope, and hope begets energy, and labor.
Biessed thus far, and remarkably delivered,
it becomes us to be thankful, and cheerful,
and to repose implicit trust in Him who hath
helped us hitherto.

Children grow up nothing on earth

The house has not a child in it. There is

There is no delav of breakfast for sleenv

no oamplaints, no importunities for impossi

marked. But it is Sunday that puts our
homes to the proof. That is the Christian
family day. The intervals of public worship
are long spaces of peace. The family seems
niacte upou tnat clay. The children are at
home. You can lay your hands on their
heads. They seem to recognise the greater
or lesser love to God and to friends. The
house is peaceful, but not still. There is a
low and melodious trill of children in it.
But Sunday comes too still now. There is
a silence that aches in the ear. There is
too much, room at the table, too much at
