There are no titles of nobility re
cognized by law in Switzerland.
Primogeniture, entails, special privi
leges, and titles of nobility, were all
overthrown and swept away by the
revolution of 1847, and abolished by
law in the Constitution of 1848.
Jesuitism was expelled from the Re
public at the same time, and a
FREE SCHOOL SYSTEM
introduced to fill the vacuum. But,
as the enforcement of the school law
was left to the action of the authori
ties of each Canton, it has resulted
that, in the Ultramontane Cantons
the priests have nullified the Consti
tutional provisions, and popular igno
rance is almost as dense as it was
quarter of a century. ago, before the
adoption of the Constitution of 1848,
the only thing'taught by the cleric
als is dogmatic catechism, to which
lately has been added Papal infalli:
bility. But, in the other Cantons,
which are Protestant or "mixed,"
Popular education has made great
progress The Prussian system of
instruction is fully adopted and' ap
plied, and the whole mass of the peo
ple in these Cantons have become
quite well educated, and newspapers,
books, and circulating libraries
abound, as in Germany. It was this
hostility of the priests to popular
secular education which chiefly
caused the recent amendment to the
Swiss Constitution. Under the" new
provisions it is made the duty of the
General Assembly to enforce secu
lar education in all the schools of
Switzerland. The priests made a
desperate effort to defeat the new
Constitution when it was submitted

The new Constitution of Switzerland,
deliberately adopted after full dis
cussion and reflection, and the expe-.
nence ot tne old one ot twenty-nve
years, creates a JS ational or Central
Government, with larger relative
powers than those conferred on the
Government ot the united Mates by
the American Constitution, which
uistrument the bwiss have profound
ly studied and made their model,
but improved upon it, as they think,
in several important respects. The
Swiss believe they possess the best
form of Government ever devised,
and that they have the purest and
most faithful as well as economical
Administration in the world. They
regard themselves as the
HAPPIEST AND MOST CONTENTED PEOPLE
with their country and lot upon
the earth. Crime is of rare occur
rence; drunkenness is almost nn
known, because they are satisfied
with the mild beverages, atid eschew
the fiery stuff which crazes the brain,
Their taxes are light; their tarriff is
merely nominal free trade being the
established policy of the Kepubuc.
They have no National and very
small Cantonal debts; while every
man is a sharpshooter, the standing
army only consists or a tew battal
ion. They have neither . King,
Prince, nor Lord, nor desire for any.
They avoid all entangling alliances,
commit no aggressions on their
neighbors, stand firmly for their
rights and liberties, and maintain
the most friendly relations with all
nations. By their good example
and cogent arguments in behalf of
law aud peace, they exerciso an in
fluence on surrounding nations far
in excess of their phiysical power,
and in tins respect resemble a Qua
ker among quarrelsome neighbors.

are extracted therefrom without the i;s

daily asked, " What is the cause of the
unparalleled success of Vinegar Bit
ters?" Our answer is, that they removo
the cause of disease, and the patient re
covers his health. They are tho great
blood purifier and a life-giving principle,
a perfect Ke'novator and Invigorator
of tho system. Never before in tho
history of" tho world has a modicine been
compounded possessing tho remarkablo
qualities of Vi.nkgae Bitters in healinp tho
sick of every distase man is heir to. They
are a gentle" Purgative as well as a Tonic,
relieving Congestion or Inflammation of

Tbe properties of Dr. Walker's
Carminative, Nutritious, Laxative, Diuretic,
Sedative, Counter-irritant, Sudorific, Altera
tive aud Anti-Bilious.
Grateful Thousands proclaim Vin
egar Bitters the most wonderful In
vigorant that ever sustained tho sinking
No Person can take these Bitters
according. to directions,.and remain long
unwell, provided their bones are not do
etroyed by mineral poison or other
means, and vital organs wasted beyond

Pearl, Alabama, Jlobile, isavannaii, Ko

their vast tributaries, throughout our
entire country during the Summer and
Autuinu, and remarkably so during sea
sons of unusual heat and dryness, are
invariably accompanied by extensive de
rangements of tho stomach and liver,
and other abdominal viscera. In their
treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow
erful, influence upon these various or
gans, is essentially necessary. There
is no cathartic for the purpose equal to
Dr. J. Walker's Vinegar Bitters,
as they will speedily remove the dark
colored viscid matter with which the
bowels are loaded, at the same time
stimulating the secretions of the liver,
and generally restoring the healthy
functions of the digestive organs.
Fortify the body against disease
by purifying all its fluids with Vinegar
Bitters. No epidemic can take hold
of a system thus fore-armed.

Sores, Eruptions of the Skin, Sore Eyes, etc.
In these, as in all other constitutional Dis
eases, "Walker's Vibeoab Bitters have
shown their great curative powers in tha
most obstinate and intractable cases.
For Inflammatory and Chronic
Rheumatism, Gout, Bilious, Remit
tent and Intermittent Fevers, Diseases of
the Blood, Liver, Kidneys- and Bladder,
these Bitters have no equal. Such Diseases
are caused by Vitiated Blood.
Mechanical Diseases. Persons en
gaged in Paints and Minerals, euch as
Plumbers, .Type-setters, Gold-beators, and
Miners, as they advance in life, are subject
to paralysis of the Bowels. To guard
against this, take a dose of Walker's Vis
eoab Bitters occasionally.
For SKin Diseases, Eruptions, Tet
ter, Salt-Rheum, Blotches, Spots, Pimples,
Pustules, Boils, Cai-buncles, Ring-worms,
Scald-bead, Sore Eyes, Erysipelas, Itch,
Scurfs, Discolorations of the Skin, Humors
and Diseases of tho Skin of whatever name
or nature, are literally dug op and carried
ont of the system in a short time by the use
of these Bitters.
Pin, Tape, and other Worms,
lurking in the system of so many thousands,
are effectually destroyed and remoVed. ' No
system of medicine, no vermifuges, no an
thelmintics will free the system from worms
like these Bitters.
For Female Complaints, in young
or old, married or single, at the dawu of wo
manhood, or the turn of life, these Tonie
Bitters display so decided an influence that
improvement is soon perceptible.
Cleanse the Vitiated Blood when
ever you find its impurities bursting through
the skin in Pimples, Eruptions, or Sores;
cleanse it when you find it obstructed and
sluggish in tho veins ; cleanse it when it is
foul; your feelings will tell you when. Keep
the blood pure, and tho health of the system
will follow. O
