What a sick niau needs is not knowl
edge, but a cure, and the medicine that
cure is the medicine for the sick. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
cures the "do believes" end the "don't
belioves." There's no hesitance about
it, no "if" nor "possibly." It says "I
can cure you, only do as I direct." Per
haps it fails occasionally. The makers
hear of it when it does, because they
never keep the money when the moiii
cine fails to do good. Suppbso the doc
tors went on that principle. (We beg
the doctor' pardon. It wouldn't do!)

were ever ready to labor in the Master's
vineyard, and whose feet were quick to
go on errands of mercy. Often during
uersbort sickness she would speak of
heaven, bright, beautiful heaven, her
eternal home, and longed to join the re
deemed of earth, who had washed their
robes and made them white in the
blood of the Lamb. Just before her
spirit took its flight, she called her
heart-broken husband and her two
weepiug children to her side, took them
by tue hand, prayed God's blessings on
tneui, asked them to meet her in
heaven, and bade them good-bye; after
which she called her friends one by one
to her side and in like manner bade
them farewell, sending a message of
love to many who were not present.

Mr. Editor: Permit me again to
enter, after a silence of several months. I
I deem it mv duty to chronicle a lew
lines in memory of the doath of one of
our best Christian women. Mrs. Billie
Temule. who was born Deo. 5th, 181'.),
and died February 21, 181)1. She was a
consistent member of the Methodist
Eoisconal Church, and died with the
fulL assurance of meeting her God In '
peace in heaven, where there is no more
death nor painful separation ot kindred
souis. Her blessed spirit is now at rest
with her tour children that proceeded
her to the eravo. She left a husband
and two darling little childrena pirl
and a boy besides a host of relatives
and friends to mourn her death. We
deeply and truly sympathize with the
pereayeu lanpiy, out tui f- j is uoue mat
can enter so deepiy into your troubles
as yourself,. There's a sad spot iu the
heart of almost every living person sa
cred to the memory of some loved one
who has gone on beiore. It may nave
b eu father or mother, sister or brother.
busbaqd, wile, or child, but tne spot is
there. In the first hours of our bert av
nient we think and feel like our sorrow
is more than we can bear, and perhaps
long and pray for death ourselves to
end our troubles. Beit as time passes
on the necessities of living occupy our
thoughts, ana gradually tne blow seems
less sever". W e never cease to mourn,
we never forget our dead; we remember
every good and loveable quality, and if
they possessed others, wo never think
of them, and gradually we bring our
selves to think and believe they were
perfect, and we cease mourning so bit
terly, and only a sad, loving, tender
recollection remains. We ought to so
live as to have our happy home above
in view; let the glories of a eoming
eternity revive our drooping spirits,
amidst life's trials and lile's contlicts.
There will be services at Nebo next
Sunday, by the regular pastor.

went to the purchase oi arms ana
ammunitions of war. But what are
the lives of our soldiers to the profits
of the merchants?
'After a whole year of 'bungling
i he country has at last discovered
that we want more men. All knew it
last fall as well as now, but it was not
popular. Now, 13,000,000 (the General
evidently intended only 1,300,000)
men art required, when 700,000 was
deemed absurd before. It will take
time to work up these recruits, and
thev will reach us in October, when
we should be in Jackson, Meridian
aud Vicksburg. iStill I must not
growl. I have purposely kept back
aud 1 have no right to criticise; save
that I am glad the papers Have at
last found out that we are at war, and
have a formidable enemy to combat.
Of couree I approve the Confiscation
Act, ana would be willing to revolu
tionize the Government so as to
amend that article of the Constitution
which forbids the forfeiture ot land to
the heirs. My full b.-llef is that we
must colonize tbe country de novo,
beginning with Kentucky aud Ten
nessee, aud should remove 4,000,000
of our people at once south of the
Ohio river, taking the farms aud
plantations of tbe rebels. 1 deplore
the war as much as ever; but if the
thing has to be done, let the means
be adequate. Don't expect to overrun
such a country or Bubdue euch a
people in one, two, or five years. It
is the task of half a century. Al
though our army is thus far South, it
can not stir trom our garrisons. Our
men are killed or captured within
sight of our line9. I have two divis
ions here, mine and Hurlbut's, about
13,000 men ; am building a strong fort
and think this is to be one of . the
dopots and basis of operations for
"The loss of Halleck is almost fatal.
We have no one to replace him. In
stead of having one head, we have
five or six, all independent of euch
othc. I expect our enemies will mast
their troops aud fall upon our detach
menta before new re-enforcements
come. I cannot leuru that there are
any largo bodies of men near us here.
There are detachments at Holly
Springs and Seuatobis, the present
terminal of the railroad of the South,
and all the people of the country are
armed as guerillas. Curtis, is at
Helena, eighty miles smith, and
Grant at Corinth. Uragy's army from
fupellQ has' moved to Chattanooga,
and proposes to march on Nashville,
Lexington and Cincinnati. They will
have about 75,000 men. Buuli is near
Huutsville, with about 30,000 men,
and, X suppose detachments of the
new levies can be put iu Kentucky
from Ohio and Indiana in time.
"The weather was very hot and
Bragg can't move his forces yery
fast; but I fear he will give trouble.
My own opinion is we ought not to
venture too much into the interior
until the river is safely in our iosses
sion, when we could land at any point
and strike inland. This attempt to
hold all the South would demand an
army too large even to think of. We
must colonize and settle as we go
South, for in Missouri there Is as
much strife as evtr. Enemies must
be killed or transported to some other
country. Your affectionate brother,
