AY. ea the Federal tioveiutnen: was established, the
prop'* of the States determined to divide their political e
powers and they did *o bv delegating a portion of those t;
powers to the Federal Government, and bv reserving a f.
portion of them to the-n*elve* or to the States. The por- tj
ti >n .telegated and the portion reserved constituted the o
sum o! ail th* ir powers. The powers delegated were b
delegated absolutely—without qualification or reserve;
and the {lowers reserved were iu like manner reserved. n
In delegating power* to the Federal Government, there j,
were certain tV'ervations • hut,in those cases the powers b
granted were what remained of the specified powers, al- j
ter deducting the reservation*. The remainder of the |
power was granted absolutely. Whenever a power is {
given by one to another, the whole power is given— 0
wk.le it u* admitted that all of that cla-*. or denomina- ,
tion, of power, is no: thereby necessarily given in all ca
se*. If « power is given by one State to another to fish t
powers of the same sort way be retained, or given to c
o.be-s, at the same t:nu In such case, the simple, in- s
dividual rght to ti,!i in those waters, is the whole power j
Kjve |; ,v d the donee may have and eseiciw that entire t
power, without precluding others from like aud equal j
patters. So, in simplv civit g what is o: ly one power to j
fiah in the waters of the State, other like powers to fish £
in (be same wati rs may be reserved by the donor. This c
j< a reserv ttion from the nature of the ease. But, il £
pvwer gtao to an individual M .1 ' .• ■ •.which Ucet- j
tab ard definite in its character, and which is such, al- j
bo, in its nature, that if done by one. il eimnot be done c
b. an >tner—then the power to vlo that act is given,whol- j
lv and rjrcfas ■ b', to the donee, so that no other cun ^
Lave the power tv> vio that act. '*t this latter class is the v
pjwcr to regui vO' cotuui**rce between the States ot the t
Union; for if Congress has the power to regulate it, it
would certainly b • absurd to say that any Sure has the ,
sam power. such poetrs-nol merely the rxercut ot t
them—are incompatible. The commission of a Captain ,
of a ship-of-war is incompatible with a comm;--ion to t
auv other m m to be the 1 aptaiu ot that ship; while, ou (
the other hand, full authority m *y be given to CapUius r
o! ditl.reut vessels to uavigate a certaiu sea. «
It was not inter, led that there -houid lie between the ,
general Government and any State, or States, a loo-e <
aud undefined co-partnership of any power delegated to -
the Federd Government. Such au arrangement world |
htTe been alike absurd, and fruitful of interminable evil.
Tie provi-iou o: the Constitution which gives to Con- i
gu ss the power to lav aud collect “ta.ves, duties, impost , |
a 1 eiv lies,'' for c* rtaia specified purposes, gives to Con- i
creso the whole power to do so. It was not intended
x . t* aiv State shm:’' ha» ' that power—or should share ]
,t_af.cr entering into the Federal compact. It Urea1 '
B U-. should empower a minister to make a treaty with ,
1 iOf, the entire power ot his couutry would be vested
,.i him to make such treaty; and if such treaty should be
made under that authority, it would be as obligatory, in
ad n-*;i. cts, as (l est Brb tin could possibly make it —

V, .soever, e ther : it irul or political—not even Great Br -
t tin he-- .t could deny its existence, or qualify it, or re
po ea'e its legi'ltit tte cousequences. So, any power giv
vn to the Federal Government must be he'd a certain
j,-*t,iite power. Aud if a thing certain and detiuite
i given by one to ai other, how can it, or anv part of it,
be retai l*' 1 * The fallacy is obvious.

ers ia tho.-e caws result* from the nature of the cases,
T. spC 'liv lv. If one Stale were at liberty to regulate its
commerce with another, or with foreign nations.thc most
c astrous cons* queoce- might rc.-uit to the commerce of
ad toe other Suites ol the Union, and to prevent such
< vda such power was exclusively given to the Federal
Government. A. i if this power is giveu by the States

without limitation or reserve, express or implied.

eral Government, tin'ev*, or until, the Congress of the
r s State* should exercise it The powers trau-ier
reti were transferred Mrs and they were transferred
tcA * *'v to the Geaeral Government.
Sup,'-« ■ Coogres had uever exercised its power to de
hue and poui-h p raCics aud feloaies ou the high seas,
x,.d t iat the State ol Virginia should enact aud put iuto
exo ii ion a body of U»s adapte 1 to those crimes, woul 1
s.tcc legislation lor a moment be held constitutional ? It
;.<1 t ot; and yet it would be constitutional. unless the
S'ate of Vlrg. ia had granted to the Federal Government
its p >wers o<*er tUvt suij cL If such grant had not been
made, she would have the same powers over the su-j ct
thit .v-e postu-s-e 1 by any sovereign Slate. Yet wheu we
a0t. a.. i,f the Federal I'ousiitutiou the general jurisdic
tion of that subject ia granted to the General Govern
n. t. t at interference with it by a State would be a
- tdr the general good of the I uioti, at the iudivid
ua . X-w: - ot a single State; and that the independent
war paver of tin State is curtailed by the Federal Coa
suiu .au to a restr.cted militia establishment; we cauuot
f ;,.pv«e that the trainers of the constitution intended that
nch power should remain to the Suto alter entering the
coal-deracy. A: 1 yet the only constitutional provision
—un;- -' meroly iuci leutal—Sy which this clearly exclus
ive power is transferred from ii-' State to the federal
Government, is that contained i.t Art. 1, 8, !<>th
clause of the Constitution, which is eaactly eq iiv
alent to that by which the power to regulate commerce
a-nongst the States is given by the 3d clause of the same
A art; ir Art. 3, of the Constitution, the Judicial
power of the t inted Slates is defined and, after reciting
other subject* of its jurisdiction, it is provided that it
,hall < r•. to all cases r.tr. cling Amt as&adors and other
public ministers and consuls. The language of the pro
vimod is no more exclusive than iliat by whieli Art. 1,
See. 8, 3d clause, transfers to Congress the power to reg
u’wte comuerve^beiween the Suics, indeed it seems to
\y> lees so. Yet, who would assert that a State has ju
risdiction in such cases—or has ever had. since it became
s utc’bcr of the Confederacy' a-_J *3 this, whether
Gong ess ever exercises! its power in such cases, or not.
The nature of the case forbids such a conclusion.
Again, the verv reason for which the power was giv
en to Congress, to regulate cOOiuieroe between the Stale*.
* a reason to »uppo*e that it was intended to take that
po*ir wholly from the States. Any State legislation ou
tue aubjt *t would probably be unequal in its operation,
or it the ; »*t, unsatisfactory to other States. The evil
ti'sted, and this provision of the Couslitu.ion, thus ic
t .-rpreie 1, is no mere than an adequate remedy.
if CongTe-B st* .u d, for the first lime, choose to ext►
cL-e any of iw powers, such au exercise of the power
would not te a means, or a condition, of its acquirement.
Nor would it, bv,»peh exercise ot the power, any more
j o- r-s it than it did bripre. 11 the mtrt •teflon of Cou
grrsa could give- it power, then such power would not be
tier ved frotu the people, or from toe States. The doc
u,., s,., JUS to import that a State Uat liberty tore»-ti*te
j*e commerce with another State, unlevo Congress aliall
vitr.iv a counter legislation and anQti! it* action. Hut
tench a theory is preposterous. It gives to Congress only
g spec.** of appehate juris-ueuon over the subject, while
jurisdiction is both original and exclusive. If a State
iv bv Uw regulate itsjcommerce with another State,on
.at authority can Congress avoid its legislation? There
do constitutional provision under which Congress can
ue • writ of prohibition to a State to restrain it from
e further exercise of such power. For if the State has
b power st all, it has it always—and the power ef Con
ess over the subject could oulw#e concurrent. A cou
rrent is not an exclusive,power. The power of Con
< •» U not a mere power of attorney,revocable at the will
the States; but it is a vested and permanent power—
Ting been transferred bv the States by solemn com
et, founded ou sufficient consideration. And so,under
e Constitution, in like manner, no power of Congress |
n be in abevauce, precariously lingering in the States
and determinable iu the States by the exercise of such
iwer by Congress. A political body cannot, any more
an a natural person, possess absolutely and entirely, a
►wer which iu any degree belongs to another. This is
tuitivelv certain. And so the power to regulate com
erce between the States being wholly delegated to the
•ueral Government, no part of it remains to any State.
The Constitution makes no postal provisions, except to
va to Congress the power to establish post offices and
wt roads, and the incidental powers arising therefrom,
ippo-e a State1 should undertake to establish a postal
stem, (tat it should establish post cilices, post roads
. i general mail arrangements, w hat would be the result'*
n invasion of the federal prerogative, which would op
•»:e hurtfully npou the postal system of the Federal
overnment. But if the F'ederal Government should
,il ^establish such a svsteui—in that case, would the
'institution require the State to forego the advantages
f the system, and to refrain from all legislation to esta
L-h - toh asvstem? It certainly would. But, at the
ime time, it may be added, that if the General Govern
lent should fail to establish or to continue a postal sys
un, it would therein fail to execute a trust reposed iu it
v the States, and would be chargable with a manifest
• reliction of duty—and this is not to be1 presumed,
be supposition of such a dereliction of duty by the
• deral Government may bo disposed of as would that
f its persi-tent failure to lay and collect taxes, which
ouid be revolutionary, and is not to be presumed.
It might possibly be inferred that the grant ol powers
> Congress, under Art 1 as, of the Constitution, is not
;tai.it a plenarv grant, inasmuch as we find that in
f he same Article, several of the powers given to Con
.i___ are In hv an pvnrf'fu
iterdetioo of those powers to the States. For example,
lie power to coin money and the power to lav duties on
nports. B :t it is sntliciently clear that the subsequent
inhibitory provisions are only in eoutinnaiion of the
. _arising out ol an abundant caution to preveut mis
onceptiou on subjects in re .-peel of which errors might
e especially hurtful. This appears from the legal anil
roper effect of the language of the provision giving the
u*. r to t’orgres-. and it alro appears from other like
firmatory pro e Conatitution. For exam,
in Art. 1 4th clause, it is said that "no capitation
r other direct tax shall be levied unless,”ic. Now,
ipita'.ion tax is a direct tax, yet, for greater certainty,
ie term • is employed. So in the 1st clause of
s. Art. 1, the terms “duties” and “imposts" are both
J, «liil*. either, by fair interpretation, would have had
ae effect of both. In hke tn-tnuer it was not legally
to a id the 10th Article of the Amendments to
ic Constitution, by which it is provided that all powers
ot delegate l to the Cuited States by the Constitution
or prohibited bv it to the States, are reserved to the
ites resp ectively or to the people, for that would have
. -u!t I (t om a fair construction of the Constitution with
it this amendment. Yet, to make assurance doubly
no. and to cut off the ; - »t7.. Vf>/ of question on that irn
.ortant subject, tl isamendment was added.
The Supreme Court of the fnited States—though by
io means unanimous on this subject—appears, ueverthe*
to tstaiu much of this construction of the Const!
We are gratified that the question here discussed no
i.nger tonne an issue before the Legislature of Virginia
rh ■ defeat of the Specia' License Bid, and the One per
•ut. tax on Merchants’ sales has disposed of it, at least
or the present. But, it is a subject of interest and itu
urtano—the re-pre-i tuition of which, ks a legislative
-sue, o:i 1-o.ne future oeousion, is not unlikely, and there
on* we have thought it not inappropriate to put these
i.ew- oa record.

The trial of Land still continues at Princess Anne
”ourt House. Last Wednesday Mrs. Land, wife of the
prisoner, was examined, and by her testimony it is hoped
;o give a complexion to the aflair, in some respects, smn
ar to that of the Sickles tragedy. The counsel for the
Commonwealth, however, alter she had testified, pro
duced a letter which she acknowledged to have been
written by herself, hut when presented to her for recog
nition was immediately torn by her into fragment*. [The
9tatemeut8 in the letter of Mrs. Lind, are aaid to be ex
ictlv contradictory to her oral testimony.]
The next day—Thursday—F. M. Whitehurst was oil
llie stand to disprove his sister’s statements,which he did
most decidedly. We copy the following Irom the exam
ination :
<*. State the advice you gavo your sister, the language
she used.
Objected to by defence upon the ground that that had
been before repeated, and a difference arose about the
transposition of the words “truth and perjury.” Mr.
Wise now used strong terms relative to to the prosecu
tioti and accused them of using professional trickery.
Mr. Johnson arose aud vindicated himself by assert
ing, “if trickery was referred to him, it was au untruth.”
(strong indications of a storing time.)
Gov. Wise then commenced his examination of the
previous question aud taking down the witness' reply,
which was as follows :
“Not to swear to a lie; not to perjure herself; and ad
vised her to tell the trull); but I cannot sav in what or
der this was said, or swear to the order iu which you
have takeu it down. 1 will swear that her reply was not
made to that phrase—to tell the truth.”
Here Mr. Taylor arose and made an explanation in re
gard to the little misunderstanding between Messrs.
Wise and Johnson, and appealed to the two gentlemen
to make it all right. Mutual explanations then took
place, apologies accepted, bauds shaken, and tilings put
on a square again.
Mr. Wise. Did you in December, 1859, or not, pro
pose bj letter to your sister Anna a plan by which to
wipe out the taint alluded tov
A I remember little or nothing about them (his let
ters.) 1 am w illing for them to be showu, and wish you
would ask me no more questions about them.
Mr. Win. "No doubt, no doubt; but I will IUk JTOU.
1 repeat the question.”
A. I remember but little about it. I say now 1 have
done with it.
tj. What was your plan ?
A. My plan was to state the truth of the whole affair,
aud I intended to use the,statement^,tfler the trial; but
you, sir, (to Mr. Wise,) have driven me in court.
I Here Mr. Wise became excited, using severe language
to the witness, questioning h’n integrity in a style of most
uilhcrinrr rt.linL-u nml hitter sarcasm. The witness.
writhing under the torture caused by an assertion of Mr.
Wise, that he hod peijured himself already, oiled the
Governor a liar. Mr. Wise now gave the witness the
renewed force of his powt rful battery, repleto with hitter
invective and scorching sarcasm.
The Norfolk Day Hook has the following:
Ex-Gov. Wise made a long and eloquent speech, urg
ing the admission of Mrs. Land’s testimony. Tne Com
monwealth finally consented, and the sheiifTmon enter
ed with Mrs. Land leaning upon his arm. She is only
about 20 years of age. Her face was covered with a
thick brown veil; she was dressed in a blue and black
striped silk, and appeared much affected. She took a
-eat in the bar beside tbe prisoner, who st that moment
'covered his face with a handkerchief. She did likewise,
and both bow ed their heads in grief. She sat beside him
for some moment- with her left hand clasped in his while
the eotirt and audience appeared moved bv a deep but
quiet excitement, until the clerk called her to the stand
to be sworu.
Her testimony was to the effect that while boarding at
Flanagan’s, in 18S4, lie seduced her, and deterred her
from saying anything about it,by saying that it would be
the means of bringing her si-ter (his wife) and himself
into difficulty. 0:i the 4;h of June, ’.17, she married Land,
who subsequently complaining of her condition, she on
the 17th of June la-t told him all about it. Her te.-ti
monv then proceeds as follows.
After 1 told him, he went the same day to see cousin
Henry Woodhousc, to consult him about what I had told
him. Mr. Flanagan came to my house on tbe morning
of the 18th of June l ist. Walter (Land) w as in the fit Id
at the time he arrived. Flanagan came because I sent
for him ; 1 sent a negro woman to him to tell him what
his conduct had brought me to, anil to advise with him
as to what I must do; lie got there between 8 and t*
o'clock ; he came in at tbe frout door and sat dowu near
it, and attempted to draw me dowu on his lap by force ;
this took place in the parlor; lie used force to draw roe
down, and was endeavoring to take improper liberties
with me; I tried to get from him and screamed. Wal
ter (Land) eante in at that time and picked up the gun
from the corner and shot him 1 Walter did not occupy
the same room wiih me the night before ; something had
been said about a divorce between ns. Walter did not
carry any arms in the field ; the pun was against the cor
n -r of the door, where it usually set. He was in the
habit of -hooting crows, and kept the gun loaded for
that purpose. When he came in he had no weapons
with him, but picked up the gun from the corner." * *
Cross-examined by the Commonwealth.— My husband
was dissatisfied and complained of my situation a month
or two after I was married. I did not acknowledge to
him my situation, but denied to him that there was any
reison to find fault of me as regards my virtue. I have
never stated toanv one that he complained of me for the
first time on the 16th day of June last.
At this juncture a letter was produced by Marmaduke
John-on. Esq., who was conducting the prosecution. It
was handed tu Mr. John Peters, who stepped to the wit
ne-s and asked her if she recoguiz- d that letter as having
been written by her. She raised her head, looked at it,
her eye- flashed, and as she grasped it, she suiid, *'Yes,
sir, I do; that letter was gotten front me by my brother
Frank, who told me that it was only to he used in case
my husband w.;s taken from me, and it was written for
the sake of my family. It was written at the request of
my brother.’’ While saving this, the rapid manipulation
of the paper between two nervous hands hail staggered
the commonwealth's attorney, who turned to the judge,
and, in a voice indicating a-tonishmer t, .-aid, "She is
tearing it up, sir.” Meanwhile she had torn it iuto a
thousand pieces and threw them upon the floor.
A genet al murmur of applause ran through the audi
ence, and we caught several time- the sound, "I glory in
her spunk,” "I ciory in her spunk.”
The commonwealth here annoui cod the fact that they
intended to introduce this lein r, which had been written
by the witness, a« testimony to contradict her statement,
and that from it« present condition they would lie unable
to do so. In order to enable the eounsel, if possible, to
pa«te tbe torn pieces together, the court adjourned for
the day.
A met ting was held a few days since, at Ashtabula,
Ohio, at which John Brown, Jr., and a brother of Edwin
Coppic, were present. Brown made a speech in refer
ence to the fugitives fiom Harper’s Ferry, lie said:
Mernam, Coppic and Owen Brown were, at the time
of tbe out-break at tbe Ferry, at a place called the Ken
nedy Farm, five tidies distant, in the State of Maryland.
Whatever then mav have been their object or purposes,
they were at that time engaged in other business, not in
Virginia, but in Maryland. Virginia was now on the
track of these fugitives, had pursued young Coppic to
the State of Iowa—to the home of his mother, a Otia
keres-, iu the neighborhood of ipwkers, where, among
non-resistants, be found no rest lor the sole of hi-* foot.
Coder the treaty stipulations between Canada and the
United States, he learned that the Governor-General of
those Provinces would be required to surrender him to
Virginia. Where then should he go 1 Ji.nl he been en
gag> d in the affair at Harper's Ferry, be lmd done noth
ing which any one of us would have disapproved had he
gone there on behalf of any friend of ours, either hither,
mother, hu-band or wife, brother or sister. He had come
to Ohio—to Ashtabula county—where he had resolved
to sell his life as dearly ns possible, in the case of an at
tempt to arrest him. “I do not,” said Mr.lt., “wish
that our friends should put themselves in jeopardy on our
account. Wc may, and perhaps it is best, that w e should
stand alone.
“I am not, Mr. Chairman, weak enough to think that
we cannot be arrested by State or Federal power; we
may be overpowered or taken, but whether we “sink or
swim, survive or perish," wc have resolved to fall or
liourish together. I have said that we may stand alone

jority anywhere."
anothkr'isvasiox threatened.
James Rodpath, who was mixed up with Old Brown
in every thing except danger, also made a speech, in
which he predicted another raid, which authorizes us to
predict another haugiug. He said :
“Aaron I). Stevens is dead, llis brave life wa9 chok
ed out of him for presuming, without asking Senator Ma
son’s permission, to believe in the Declaration of Inde
pendence, and, thus beliving, for still further daring, (to
use his Captain's words,) “to put that tiling through;”
or, in the words of God, as rendered by Isaiah, for at
tempting to “Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land,
unto all the inhabitants thereof.’ Many of you knew
him; shall lie die in vain and unavenged ?
“To those of you who are friends of the slave-driver
I have nothing’to say—my duty is with men whose
hearts are too large to be suffocated by the dust raised
bv party mountebanks, and whose gaze is too steady to
be dazzled by the glare of the false and fatal splendor
ot the despot’s court. To those of you who are ready
to imitate Stevens this only need be said: “Be prepar
ed; bide your time; ere long you will be called.” For 1
tell you men of Ashtubula, that the strangling of John
Brown was not the death of this cause, and that, ere
many more moons revolve,the slave will be again offered
succor. Six months before the blow at Harper’s Ferry, I
stated that it would be made, and even indicated by
whom : and again, I give the slave driver solemn warn
ing to FCt his house in order, for his doom is pronounc
ed—‘he shall die and not live.’ Mouev will be needed
to execute these plans of liberation. Those of you who
approve it must aid it by your money.”
Deacon Gray, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, w ho had
come to report the meeting tor his paper, was loudly call
ed for. He arose and said :
He could not believe, after the courtesy he bad met in
Jefferson, that this audience called him out for the pur
pose of hissing him down. (Cries of no ! uo ! go on, Ac.)
If tbey.could'see hi<* heart they would know that he was
not sq (hr iu I’eeliDg from any of them, as they might
think, He had nothing to object to in the remarks of
John Brown, or in the quaint, odd speech of Owen ; and
although he could not indorse the position of Mr. Red
path, he had no quarrel with him- lie would not make
a speech, but ask to be let off by telling a story. They
might know that thefe were two (jrays—-j. W. Gray, ol
the Plaindealcr, and himself, or Deacon Gray, as people
called him. [Laughter.) He (tho speaker) was ouce a
Deacon of the Presbyterian Church at Pittsburg. One
dav he saw a negro’limping along and a white man fol
lowing with a drawn revolver in his haud. Now, said
I the speaker, mind you, I'm not talking of my theories,
but practice, [Laughter.] This negro was a fugitive, |
who had once before escaped into Pennsylvania, but had
been followed, shot down and taken back. This was the
second time he bad been captured.
These two met:—black and white—were crowing a
covered bridge, at one end of which was the Presbyte
rian Church. As the negro was some ways ahead, he,
(the speaker,) managed to push him into the church
tloor, at which the sexton happened to he standing.—
They then locked the door and run the negro up the
steeple, and there they looked down upon the slaveholder
who was passing about in all directions, in trying to find
where the negro had gone to.
Three cheers were given for Gray’s Democratic prac
John Brown, Jr., rose and asked Mr. Gray if he would
be willing to answer a question ?
The whole audience became still, and the Deacon rose
with a rather uueasy and decidedly serious face, and said:
John Brown, Jr.—"Well, sir, 1st me fask you if you
did not feel nearer Heaven when you were in that steeple
with the negro, than while standing on the l inciunati
The Deacon dropped as if he had been shot through
the heart, and the whole audience rose and cheered.
Washington, March 31.—A scene between two Con
gressmen, which occurred this morning, occasions some
excitement. Mr. Van Wyck meeting Mr. Hindman on
the avenue, held out his hand in triendly recognition,
when Mr. Hindman refused to take it, making use ot the
words, as reported : “k oil d—*1 seoundrel, you have de
livered a speech not only insulting to every Southern
mail, but to every gentleman." At the same time ma
king a movement with his left hand towards Mr. Van
Wyek’s face, us if additionally to insult him. It is said
that a duel will result.
St. Loi is, Maieh 30.—The legislature adjourned sine

objectionable features of the Railroad bill.

I an now supplying the tmde with pure Cognac Brandy, In Bot- 1
ties, both for medical and private use. The Immense success that
has crowned my effort* to place a pure Oin within the reacli of all,
under the name of Aromatic Schiedtm Schnapps, and to drive out
of the market the pernicious compound* sold as Gin throughout
the country, led many leading druggists, apothecaries and medical
men, for some years past, to solicit me to pursue the same course
in regard to tne article of Brandy. I should have complied with
these requests from all quarters long ago, hut was deterred from it
by the fact that owing to the exorbitant prices of Brandy In France,
const qui nt upou the shortness of the grape crop for tome years,
there was no chance of my being able to import the choicest Bran
dy, bottle it and sell It at moderate price*. Fortunately forme,
tlie grape crop for the list an l previous year (and the prospect
for this) was abundant, and prices of Brandy have fallen to the
the standard of ten years ago. The duly on Brandy is also
seventy percent, lower, and I have now made arrangement* with
four Brandy exporters in F’ance, of tlie highest repute, and am reg
ularly receiving consignment* of the heal Cognac Brandy, which I
am bottling and selling as Wolfe's Genuine Cognac Brandy. 1
guarantee with my seal, label* and certiflcatea, the brandy so bot
tled by me, as the pore, unadulterated article, and it will be found,
when used as a medicine, a beverage, or a cordial, healthful and
Invigorating. It has been a matter of universal complaint, that a
bottle of pure untuixed French Brandy, was very difficult to obtain,
and the purchaser, nine times in ten, was deceived with a vile man
ufactured Imitation. Of all descriptn ns of ardeuUptrits, Brandy,
from Its high price, has been tlie one article that mixers and tellers
have turned their attention to, and millions of gallons of the so
called French Brandy have been scattered annually through the
land, and have been the primary cause of murders, suicides, cruel
ties and crimes, and hare sent thousands to an early grave, self
destroyers, from delirium tremens, marda-a-potu and horrors,
names unknown, until unprincipled men began to make madden
ing compound* and sell it a* the pure French Brandy.
The trlrtues of pure French Brandy need not be told by me.—
They are known throughout the world aa a me Heine or mild stim
ul int. It lr, aa the French nation poetically call It, “ Kau d- la
Tie,'' the water of life. But this applies to it only when pure and
unadulterated. Manufactured with the fearful lngredienta that
make a good Imitation, It become* a death drink to Innocent tens
of thousands of onr race. To remedy a fearful evil, 1 have com
menced Importing Brandy, bottling It, and selling it as
I am dally receiving orders from druggists and apoihecarlei In all
parts of the L'nlon, to tell It for medical purposes.
