We understand that a high military
authority in Washington has expressed
the opinion that the volunteer forces
cannot be concentrated on the Rio Grande
before the close of August of the open
ing of September. The task of collect
ing such force from our widely extended
territory, organizing and preparing them
for the field, cannot be effected, even
with the most strenuous exertions, before
:hat period. The army will consist of
twenty odd thousand men, and will be
jicvided with all that is necessary to in
sire triumph.
This measure will meet the approba

in this country ; and for cash will sell to
families genuine Medicines cheaper than
any Botanic Medicines, previously sold in

upwards nf two hundred patients within
the last twelve months, without the loss of
hut one single patient, where he attended
from first to last.
It alfords me pleasure unspeakable to
