DISEASES OF THE LIVER,

The well known Dr, Wakken. of Boston
saysof thee Pills, "Thef have the finest ef-
lect upon the Liver and digestive organs of
any meaicine in uie wtinu, unu are tne most
perfect purgative which has ever yet been
made by anf body. The etl'ect have abund
antly shown to tho community how much
they excel the ordinary medicines in use.
They aro safe and pleasant to luke, but pow
erfull to cure. Their penetrating properiies
stimulate the vital activiies of the body,
remove the obstructions of its organs, puri
fy the blood, and expel disease. They purge,
out the foul humors that breed and grow
distemper, stimulate sluggish or disordered
organs into their natural action, and im
part a healthy tone with strength to the
m hole system.. Not only do they cure the
every-day cqrriplaints or everybody, but also
formidable' and dangerous diseases. While
they produced-powerful effects, they are at
the same time,indimished doses, the safest
and bgst . physio-,that can be. employed lor
children, and' being purely vegetable are free
from any risk or harm.
The most temarkable feutu'e of these pills
is the perfection with which they act on ex
tremely dissimilar chronic diseases The
same doses cure Diarrhoea or Dyspepsia, in
either case restoring the oans to healthy
and natural condition, which cannot be said
of any other medicine in exisleuce."
They create pure blood and remove all
impurities from the system, hence are a pos

A Quaker Woman Sermon
Dear Fiiendt:V.ma are
thtoe things I very much wonder at.
Tub first is, that children should be
at foolish as to throw up stones, clubj,
and brickbats into fruit trees, to
knock down fiuit: if they would let it
al ue,.it vould lall itself. Tho bco
utjwi is that men should be so foolish,
ani even bo wicked m to go to war
and) kill each othor; if left alono thev
woild die themselves, And the third
ana last thing which I wonder at is,
thui young men should be bo nnwiso
usjfo go after tho young women; if
ilif , would stay at homo, trio young
vouien would 'comu alter thein.

bondent of tho Commercial, in a let

"it is a positive fact, of which 1
have persohal knowledge, that the
fato ot oneot tho mt important pro
vision of tho tax bill, in the last Con
gress, was decided b a drunken vote.
Ou the first roll call the vote stood
nineteen to twenty. Tho minority
defeated it by drumming np two tipsy
recruits from tho Hole in tho Wall,
and telling them to vote with them,
which they did, without askiag what

it has boon a question ol peacoor war

Elements of Future Ill.
Wo, tho people of tho Unitod States
have a power iu tho process of crea
tion, whoso ctfects upon our destiny
we have no means, accurately, to cal
culate The years which have pass
ed since this war began, and the time
that will pa3S botoro it is concluded,
are calling into existence, aud consoli
dating into ao order, a body of men
unfit tor the purposes ot civil lite, iu
disposed to industrial avocations, and
which can only bo kept from being
actively noxious at homo, by permit
ting it to ba olTensivo abroad. The
ablest of tho apostles of our philan
thropy -at once the moat sagacious
and the most fanatical did not hist
tato to inform us that wa wore crea
ting a world of the seeds of do''Stic
troubles and distractions in tho army
which wo are calling into extstenco.
They found for it a compensation iu
the glorious work which was to be
done iu breaking up tho domestic re
lations of tho people of tho itunrree
tionary communities, whether in real
ity the compensation wili prove u-l-j-quat
to meet all tfta resulting dimi 1
vantagos, ib a question which must
remain to ho solvad by future geuar
ations. They decided ono way, but
time and tho course of ovon'.a may,
and probably will, decido another.
Cotempoary decisions are seldom fi
nal; and in proportion to tho passion)
by which thoy were prompted will bo
the brevity of tho period uecassary to
demonstrate their incorrectness.
Whether the time between now
aud the day when our araiiea will no
moro be used to prosocute operations
against tho South, is abort or long,
one thing is cortatn; that it will soou
er or later come to an end. What
ever may bo tho particular political
6tatus ia which it will ceaso, another
thing is certain; that it will bring ex
haustion. We shall hava presented
to us tho dreary alternative: to dis
band it and 6 u tier tho unpleasant so
cial consequences which tho disper
sion of its elements wili inevitably
produce, or to continue it and sutler
the equally unpleasant and. equally
inevitable political consequoncea.
Nor will tho matorials of thq army
bo entirely passive' upon" the question
of its disposal. It will have the dis
position to take tho question of its
destiny into its own hands; nor will it
w'aut tho muaps to do so a; long as
men remain ambitious, politicians cor,
mpt, or philauthrooiau murUlnon..,,.
