“Bayonets and School Houses"
Under the caption of “B*y<>n.-t* and School
houses,” Tht -\'<it. ■»* devote* an editorial arti
cle to the South. It lays down a lcgislativ,
programme for Congress in its Southern |*olicy,
which smacks of the birch and smells of gun
powder. We are not only to he governed by
seventy thousand soldiers, under Mr. Wit
rto.s’s bill, but we are to be subject to tin
wholesome discipline of an army of school
teachers, under a bill now before the Joint
Committee on Reconstruction. We are alt
boys and girls, and have to go to school.—
It we demur, compulsion is to be brought to hear
upon us. If the ibirchcn r<«d should not prov*
efficient,we will be forced to hear the lesson
of New Kngkind pedagogues under the prick
of the bayonet. School-mastering with a ven
geance, truly 1 What if the South produced a
\\ vsHtNOToN, a Jekfi-Hsox, a MvDison. a Mon
roe, the Lelm, a IIknry, Mae-iih-l, Ka.n
im»lph, Clay, the Pinckneys, aud numberless
other ••names that were uot born to die . —
They were accidents, ami prove nothing. W*
arc but barbarians, whose ignorance i- an <1
fense to Northern culture and civilization*—
Tiieir righteous hearts yearn toward us. They
want to lorce us under that glorious light
which illumines the minds of Cuari.es St m
m.r, ThaiHEfs Stevens and Wexhki.i. I’uil
nrs. Says The Motion, with great simplicity,
‘•Many will object t«> such compulsion as an in
fringement of private right and individual free
dom.” We object to nothing. We lay claim
to no private rights, it’ Radical counsels are to
prevail. As for “individual freedom,” «i
leave that entirely to the negroes as a motiop
Oly. nun norrm ji'i «i *
“rights" and “freedom,” in couucctinu with the
Southern whites, is a cruel mockery. Might i>
right! The Radicals have the one and will not
permit the other to l<e questioned. To ns oi
the South, it is fast bccomiug a matter ofiudii
fereuce how, and to wliat extent, they are
about to exercise this might. If there is one
request, however, that we may be permitted to
make—not as a matter of right, but of grace—
it is that when sent to school they will not re
quire us to wear round-abouts, and to spell
theatre theater, and centre center.
The X'tlioH expects much ditticulty to be cn
c«vtv* red by reason of “ the inn'itt- hostility tj
' juth to the li.jht of letters.” In speculating
v •> this subject it grows bold, saying that the
President made a mistake in not requiring
••me foundation of a common school system
aa one oi “ the prerequisites of reconciliation 1
mid forgiveness.” Fills, it says, would have
“ involved the enforcement of the confiscation ■
act, in order so to distribute population a- t«>
bring the school districts within practicable
limits.'’ “ But, it so,” says /Vo .Vi/mui, “Was
it not best that this act should lie enforced .*
Imagine the President and Cougress saying to
the broti/.cd vete.'ans, who lor four years with.
st > >d the utmost power of the North, by land
and by sea, and to the matrons who eueour- J
aged and sustained them—“ d mi have been ,
naughty boys and girls, and unless you go
schtHil to Massachusetts |*edu'gogui. s and sehool
marius, and purchase and study ‘Harper's!
school book*,’ you shall not come liack ii»i<>
the L’uion.” Southern teachers are not to bo
tolerated; Southern school books are to be
lalioocd—for every cent paid to the one, and ,
for the other, is s,, much taken from the good
and loyal Northern pedagogue* and publishers,
lies ides, it is declared that Southern tcuclieis
and Southern Imoks arc full of treason. Again,
in tin new L’nion there must be a Iminogctic- ;
ous literature. Kverything, ;n fact, will be re
quired to conform t<> the Northern standard,
livery town cloek must not only ernue from the
North, but must be set and regulated by* North- •
ern chronometers. Private watches must be
purchased in Boston, and must run according
to Boston time. Webster's and Worcester
dictionaries are to he legalized by Congress—
perhaps by amcndiueut to the Constitution— ,
and no Southern man will lie permitted to use
any other. We will be required, under heavy ;
penalties, to pronounce cow, Jbe-mr, and kind. [
kce-init. All of us, old and young, w ill l>e re
quired to wash our faces ami hands, comb oitr
hair, put nu clean aprons, every* morning, and go j
to school. Venerable urchins of three score and
ten, will be seen hurrying through tlu ir break
fast* to get to the school house in time to save
a switching. We picture them now, to our
selves, as they skip along with their shining
faces—a tin bucket, containing lunch, in one
ham!, anil a set of Harper's school books in the
other. The school inarms and the male peda
gogues will have a hard time with these old
barbarians before they can get them licked
into shape-. Their lir*l lesson will be to un
learn all that they ever knew—especially t>>
forgot all that happened during the war, that
rejects credit upon Southern arms. When
their estimable and disinterested teachers shall
succeed in effacing all old impressions from
tb,»ir minds, their next lesson will Ik* to learn
to love Charles Si'mnkk, Thaupki s Stevens,
Tankee-Doodlc, dough-nuts and eodtish.— j
Their first lesson in writing w ill be—“ Great is 1
Dts vu of the Africans.” The geography
placed iu their hands will teach them that the
sun rises and sets in New F.ngtaiid ; that all the '
religion, patriotism, learning, refinement and |
scholarship on this continent are to he found
in Boston. Their tirst lesson in political
economy will be to sell everything they make
to, and purchase every thing they want from, the
North. Their first political les>ou will be that
Radicalism and negro suffrage are the s< -<i
bonum of political philosophy.
Don't imagiuc, innocent reader, that we aie
trying our hand at persiflage. W e are not.
The Xation declares that *• We must 'ducat'
the entire population of the South. Again,
speaking of the government, it says—“ This
it cannot do, unless, besides opening wide the
doorol its school houses, it resolutely com/"-'
the attendance of those who are kept away by
uuwholsome restraint.” It proposes that in the
rest ration of the Southern States, and the ad
mis'ion of new States, free schools -hall be
taken and held as an essential part of what
lac Constitution uicaus by “ a republican form
oi government.”
The Atlantic Monthly, for February, is scarcely
behind the Xation in the pictures it presents of
the ignorance of the Southern people,
contribution to its columns entitled, “Three
Mouths Among the Keconstructionists.” i; ,
twenty miles from (’harle'tori, says the write-,
“and you are in the land of the Barbarians."—
Of North Carolina, he 'ays that, outside ot Ba
leigh, “the common |«cople” are “at lea-i
fortv years behind the same class of people n
Vermont.” Of Georgia, “ a dozen miles'* out
trom Macon, “ are large neighborhoods not y. i
hall civilized.” Again, “till civilization ha
been carried down into the homes and hearts«
all classes, wc shall have neither regard foi
humanity nor respect lor the rights ot the citi
zeu. In many sections ot all these States, hu
man life W quite as cheap as animal life. Wha
a mental and moral condition d*>cs this itnb
cate.” One man, in comfortable eircuui-taece
and with a wife and daughters, “had neve:
takeu a newspaper in his life.” He saw “ sev
oral who had never been iu a school house,'
-nd «> didn't mean to ’low their children to g<
inside one.” Another “ had never owned au;
b^ok but a testament, and that was given t<
him ” This writer liberally concludes : “ The*
are exceptional case*, but they truly index th
sitiaztion of thousands of persona.” No lik
I • exceptional’’ pases to bo found in the heart of
tostou, New York aiul Philadelphia f Of
our-« not!
It is hardly worth while tor ustosay that this
lam >r alntut Southern barbarism and ignorance
md disloyalty, on the part of ti>e radical tuaga
mies, is to delay Southern restoration—
Udicalisu, if not cheeked, will strip the’South
tot only of all rights anti powers, but will force
ipoti it Northern ideas, Northern systems ot
ducation, Northern tea hers ami Northern
-chool books—it will inouhl its labor system,

tions -hall be raised, amt in what quantities, ami
require that th. v shall be sold to the North at
•ertain fixed prices and that the proceeds of
-ale shall U* invested ill Northern g.wds, wares

with us we may be in the Union, but we w ill

(jod help us.) ot genuine manhood.
The President.
Until the recent letter of “Agate,” the M a.-h
iugton correspondent of the Cincinnati Ucuette,
which appeared in our issue of yesterday, we
iuve had but little information in regard to the
President’s present view* of allairs. Amid the
latter and noise ot radicalism, he has main
aiued a serene silence. That letter, written
,v a radical to a radical newspaper, places him
oefore the country in a most creditable, we
max sav dignified and commanding posture.
V\'e hear of no scolding, no fretting, no un
manly complaining. Master of himself, may
we not hope that he will soon appear master ot
the situation. It appears from “Agate's” let
ter—and “Agate” is certainly an intelligent
and apparently well informed writer—that the
President is unshaken by the storm ol radieal
-m that is raging around him. He still holds
to his former convictions, and is even stronger
■i them than when we last hchrd from him. He
<>mni:ts himself further ami more strongly
gainst i a lieal policy than he did before. Not
•tily does he say that the Southern States are
‘ now in the Union,” and arc “ entitled to all
[he rights of States,” but he declares hituself
ipposed to those “constitutional amendments”
>v xvhieh it is proposed to prohibit the South
•ru States from paying their xvar debts, and
ixing negro suffrage upon them, lie rebukes
lie wild radical propensity for constitution
mkcring, bx saving that it has a tendency
• toward unsettling the foundation of things,”
md is -‘calculated to weaken the force and
iolctnn sanction of the Constitution, and make
is provisions like the work of tofn meetings.”
His objection to make the payment ofthc “rebel
lebt” unconstitutional is most forcibly stated
it the form of an interrogatory—“ llow would it
ook,” says he, “ to provide by a constitutional
intendment that the l uited States debt should
i t be repudiated.'” Furthermore,“ lie did
lot think it rigiit to demand the adoption of
my constitutional amendment as a condition of
idmittiug Southern members to Congress, be.
uuse those States in re in Hof and • ntitled to ail
h- r'f/kts of Stilt- lie developes his liberal
ilieorv of the relation of the Southern States
o the I'nion during the process of restoration,
n the remark that “ lie had not intended that
iis own requirements should be considered as

i.vmcA, or all branches or the tl-u'envnent hud
t-f ri-iht to isact, hi fort those States should be
i. fit led lo rtcm/niti-in as Shi fes in the I'nion."
le declares that his own action in prescribing
i-ruis "iea< in nalitu an I wc/.v meant to be onhi
tdrisorif'
riicrc i. profound, far reaching sagacity in
nese views ot the President. ThcTo is more—
ouiesty and good feeling. There is souud pa
nel! in ami a u i/p appreciation of tin- dignit\
■ id binding force ot the Constitution nt the
•untry. The President places liituself 011 clo
ned ground, and speaks and acts with as
■inch deliberation as if there were n<> excite
nent, m» clamor to confuse him. lie has evi
h-utly made up Iris mind unalterably, and looks
•eyond the Radical influences in Congress to
lie people of the country. He feels, and we
iivliovo his reelings will not mislead him, that
he can safely rely upon the masses to support
id- wise, just and humane policy. He stands
i:ii>. day like Svci., a head and shoulders above
t iiosc who surround him. Beside him the Radi
cal leaders areas pigmies.
With tic- view . that tin- President is thus
represented as holding, it is very manifest that,
ii Radicalism is to prevail, it can only prevail
... or the Constitutional veto ofthc President.
Citizenship and Suffrage—A Boon or Bane ?
AijisTotlk, in bis polities, maintains that the
liability and success of a Democratic Govern
ment depend greatly upon the preponderance
of the “middle class” of society, lie also
maintains that “hired servants’’ ought not to
lie regarded as citizens of the Commonwealth,
or be allowed to exercise the right of suffrage.
Senator Si mnee thinks these doctrines very
erroneous, and he is anxious that all the freed
men of the South should lie allowed to vote.—
The recently emancipated negroes are ignorant,
indolent and improvident. They have every
inducement t“ work, but are unwilling to work
fair wages. Their laziness demonstrates
tlu-ir inadequate appreciation of liberty. Coll
ier upmi those people tin- right of suilrage, and
von unavoidably increase tln-ir laziness, pov
erty and sutfering. In Virginia, and probably
in Moat tie Southern States, nearly all uffi.
cos are tilled by popular vote. Every four
.ears a President ot' the United Slates is to he
• .... i _1 ......... ...... .......... ........i....- ..e
giv'S ar-* fin •sen. Then the elections of State
(lovertmrs, members of the Legislature, Judges,
Magistrates, Attorneys for the Commonwealth,
Clerks, Sheriff's, Commissioners of the Kevciuie,
\ ■„ are occurring from time to time. I nless
the freedmen exercise their right of suffrage
and attend these elections, why give them the
right of suffrage t It' the freedmen should feel
themselves hound to attend these several elec
tions and east their votes, they inevitably lose
much valuable time, as in the country the
places oi voting are not always very convenient.
As very few ol the freedmen can read, they
would think it necessary to attend political
meetings, hear speeches, and try in that way to
qualify themselves for the proper exercise of
the right of suffrage. In attending these po
litical assemblies at the different Court Houses
and other public places, the freed negroes
would he tempted to indulge too freely in
liquor.
These are only a part of the evils incident
to conferring the right ol" suffrage upon the
freed negroes. Would not the right of suffrage,
in their present state of ignorance and poverty,
prove to he one ol the greatest curses ever in
flicted upon them t Their time is their money.
Unless they labor faithfully and regularly, they
must perish. They have no land, houses or
nionev. and are entirely dependent upon their
daily labor for their daily bread. Every hottest
and sensible white man of the South, conver
>tnt with the condition of this class ol our popu
lation, will acknowledge the truth ol thisstate
u,out. Some freed negroes have their aged
parents to provide for, and others their wives
uid children. The labor of the healthy por
of tliis population is the only resource tor
obtaining ..1 and clothing for the whole.—
,,IVt the right of suffrage to the men, and •■n
> mirage Them to attend political assemblies,
ai d then to to the elections, and agricultural
production is materially impaired bv the ab
straetiou <d labor; industry is diminished;
wages are reduced; drunkenness and tl.eff
amputate*, and AemoraSaatMa in its vartout
l>>rins increases with great rapidity. Expert
cnee has long since shown tha, frequent elec
lions tend to demoralize white m,.„t aml we
are, therefore, authorized to conclude that thr
same effect would In* produced to agreater ex
tent by allowing the right of suffrage to thr
. freed negroes.
Any form of government may be converter
. into a despotism by pushing its peculiar prin
ciples to au extreme. The sovereign penph
i can err as well as any individual sovereign—
One of the greatest dangers incident to the <le
moeratic system of government is the uncoti
trolled and uncontrolahle power of the iua
joritv. A King or Emperor is liable to be re
strained by public opinion, and the apprehcn-'
sion of being beheaded or banished. Au j
aristocracv also stands in awe ot public
opinion. Not so, however, with the majority
which rules iu a democratic government.—
This majority feels no responsibility to any
earthly tribunal, and is prone to injure and op. |
press the minority. There is no public opinion
to restrain the majority, because the organs of
the majority are content to reflect the opinions ■
and represent the interests of tiie majority, re- |
' eardless of the feeling*, interests and remon
strances of the minority. If many ot those 1
who constitute the majority are influenced by
fanaticism, morbid philanthropy, or sectional
hatred, then tiie rights of the minority are still
more endangered. The minority has no modus j
of vindicating its rights, and must trust to time >
arid a returning sense of justice on the |»art 01
the majority. Have not the events of the last
lew years justilied these observations t
u if ever,” says Dk To< ijI'kviu.K, “the free |
institutions of America are destroyed, that
event may he attributed to the unlimited au- |
thority of the majority. * * * Auarcliy
will be the result, but it will have been brought |
about by despotism.”
It is tiie duty of all conservative patriots who
admire the Constitution *>f the United States,
and desire to see it maintained and preserved,
instead of being defaced and undermined by
repeated innovations under the cloak ot amend
ment, to arou.se themselves and scrutinise the
plans and purposes of the Radical politicians
who claim to he greater statesmen Ilian the
eminent tnen who composed the federal Con
vention of ITS!). The “ lubitlo novnrmn rc
rniu" seems to infect many members of Con
gress at present. They are unwilling to live
under that Constitution which, for seventy
rears preceding iMiO, was so much admired
and extolled. The sages and patriots of the
Revolution are now to be considered as
eclipsed by Senator Si'mnkr and bis associates.
If the Constitution forbids us from degrading
ami oppressing the minority, let us amend
the Constitution and then we shall Imve the
minority forever under our coutrol and subject
to our power ! Thus think, and thus talk the
prominent leaders of the dominant majority ill
the House of Representatives. Instead of con
ciliation, forbearance, justice, moderation and
magnanimity, as a means of restoring the
• r - .. ....I __lt.»linm linlwnon

the States, there are prominent men seeking
to gratify their feelings of malice and revenge
towards the white population of tiie South and
to put them upon a level with their former
slaves.
Counties of Berkeley and Jefferson.
The report of the Judiciary Committee of
the House of Representatives upon the transfer
of the counties of Berkeley and Jefferson from
the State of Virginia to the State of West \ ir
ginia, is before us. It is a long and elaborate
document, and, as was to have been appre
hended, by reason of Radical prejudice, is ad
verse to the wishes of the people of those
counties and the people of the State of \ ir
giuia. We have no room for the argument,
but present the conclusions of the committee :
-But if the State of Vitgiuia may repeal the laws
and revoke the grant of jurisdiction over the conn- :
t es of Berkeley and Jefferson to the State of WY-t
Virginia, why may she uot repeal the law and re
voke her consent to the creation of the State of W ost
Virginia. I
•• if it tic said that the transfer of sovereignty and j
jurisdiction over the counties ot Berkeley and .teller- ]
-on i- incomplete for want of the ratiticatiou of t on- j
:res.-, we auswer that it i' lint necessary that a grant
, lion Id be formal and jierfeet. to invest the grantee
■\ itli rights oi which the grantor c tnnot divest him.
\o matter however informal or irregular a grant i
may In*, if it i> made and accepted m good faith. ;
ami the grantee incurs e\-|K*nses outlie laithof it.
it confers an e*piity u|">n the grantee, which a court
of chancery will jirotcct and enforce.
‘•These parties have done everything in their
power to complete this transfer of sovereignty an.I
jurisdiction, and if it is -till incomplete and iiii]kI'
li'Ct. it is no lauil ol theirs.
•• It h i- In eii executed and acted upon, and tin* |
rights actpi.red ami liabil.tics incurred upon the faith
ol the grant affect the peace and quiet of a commu
nity of more limn ‘JO 000 people.
•• Your committee therefore siilintit that tin* si I a t e
of Virginia cauuol now disturlithe peace ami hap
|iiness of this lommumty l>y rejiealing the law and
revoking the grant of jurisdiction.
•• And your cominittiv an* clearly of opinion that
auv action of t'ongress that would |Histjione. and
leave o|k.*u to question and eontrovei*sy the status ol
these counties, would only increase tin* bitterness
and strife which already exist.
“ I he effect of delay ami uncertainty cannot fail
to be to foster and encourage a spirit of iiisubordina
tiou and disloyalty wholly inconsistent with the
|vcace and good order of the community.
Your committee therefore recommend the pas
sage of the joint resolution."
The joint resolution referred to gives the
consent of (Congress to the transfer ot' those
counties.
Tiu: Raohai. I’koukamme.—The New York
Tinns. edited by Mr. Raymond, M. in an
article referring to the passage of the negro
suffrage bill in the District of <\ilumbin, gives
the annexed plain record of the intentions ol
the Radicals:
«• The avowal has repeatedly been made bv
those known as Radicals in the the Union
ranks, that its in.tin purpose was to establish
a principle in the District which should altcr
w.ird he applied to the several States. The
admission of tin* recently emancipated slaves
lo the right of umjualitled, universal suffrage in
the rebel States, is put forward hv them as an
indispensable condition to tin* re-admission of
these States to tiu* Union. Judge Kelley, ol
Pennsylvania, the author of this hill, declared
recently in debate with Mr. Kassoti, ot Imva,
tiiat Congress had tin* right to prescribe the
■ |italitieations of voters ‘for the most numerous
branches of the Legislature’ in every State in
the Union—in other words, that, notwitlistaud
Congress luul supreme powc- over this whole
subject, and he is prepared to introduce a bill
for its assertion and exercise. Mr. Stevens
lias given notice of a bill to give every emanci
pated negro a homestead, either from the con
fiscated estates of Southern rebels, or from
lands in the South owned by the Government.
A hill is already before the House ignoring ut
terly everything done by the President towards
the restoration of peace and Federal relations
in the Southern States, and proposing to or
ganize territorial governments for them all.
And the same tactics are to he employed to
lorco each and every one of these measures
upon the Union party in the House, which
proved so successful on this District of Colum
bia bill. The same use will he made of the
maehiuery of caucus.”

tin- |,ill. lie said that if there was no danger in
allowing a negro, as plaintiff, to give evidence
against a white man, as defendant: if there was no
danger in this, then, that principle once admitted,
lhere could be no danger ill admitting negro testi
mony in eases where only white men are concerned.
The question was then called on the amendment of

ers. held in the city ot Alexandria, on the Ifdli and
Kith days of Noveiutier, ItSbn under a call fora meet

When Mr. Cabell, of Rockingham, proceeded to
defend the legality of the election ot Mr. Harbour,
as President, and the gentlemen who are therein
named as directors, lie was proceeding to criticize
the message ol the Governor upon tin-subject, who,
lie said, had condescended to ap|»ear before the Le
gislature in the attitude of counsel lor t.'uigly & Co.,
■ a which capacity In- was as inaccurate in state
ment and puerile in argument, when the Speaker
called him toorder. lie then advocated the ivsolu
i ,m at length in a speech of marked ability.—
Other gentlemen continued the debate, when, alter
several amendments and substitutes for the above,
Mr. Lee moved the following as a substitute:

Washington, January 23.
THE SITKEME COURT—T11IAL OF JEFF DAVIS AND
THE TEST OATH—TO* SOI I HERN STATES.
It is known that the Justices of the Supreme Court
have been conferring in relation to the trial of Jef
ferson Davis for some time, and there is not much
doubt that they, or a portion of them, inspired the
bill of Mr. Clarke in the Senate. The imitations
are Very stioug that the court has decided adverse
ly to the test oath of 1SH2, but the reasons why a
promulgation to that effect is not now made are ob
vious
The members elect to Congress from the South
west are ou the point of returning home. It is due
to truth to .'talc that they have had little hope Iroiu
the start.
' The era of constrained good feelings between radi
cal and conservative politicians is near iLs end, uu- j
less the former soon lower their crest. As things are.
it is thought that even Tennessee members cannot be I
admitted, though Mr. • ollax has said that he should |
take the llo ir to advocate their right to seats. The
Hood of experimental legislation of a mere partisan
nature that the radical leaders are seeking to on
graft upon the luudaiuental law. not less tli.,n their
i new irrational idea of general negro suffrage, is
aliiriuing to moderate minded men even in Congress.
They are raising their incougmous fabric so high
that before long it will tumble into undistinguished
r.uu.
MARRIAGE OF MRS. DOUGLAS.
Last evening (Tuesday, 23d,) Mrs. Adelc ('. Doug
las was united m maliimony with Brevet Brigadier
General Robert Williams. C. s. A.
f he marriage took place at the residence of the I
1 bride, on New Jersey avenue, Douglas Place. The
ceremony was performed by Reverend Father
Lynch, assisted by Reverend Father McGuire, ol
Georgetown College.
Among the invited guests were Hon. K. M. Stan

Senator Foster and lady. General Townsend and

A. Scot! and lady, u! Philadelphia, and scvetal rela
, lives of the bride.
The dress of the bride was made of white cotdcd
silk, (high m Die neck.) aud a rich tulle veil.
fire bridegroom appealed in full military uniform.
1 The rooms were elegantly decorated with tlowers,
and the display of diamonds, {leurls. and splendid
dresses of the ladies presented a s.ght at oucectiarm
' ing and interesting to the spectator.
THE TRIAL OF SEMMES,
There is a sudden hitch in the arrangements fur
tlie trial of Seutmes, and a doubt is now expressed
whether he will he summoned to appear before a
court martial. Judge Hughes, his leading counsel,
has remonstrated against this mode of Inal, us un
just aud wrong iu view of the eireiim-tauees attend
ing the parole of his client, and the expression of
the President, not long since, that he should oppose
all such trials iu the future. If 1 am correctly in
formed, the Judge, who is a personal friend of the
President, has appealed to him directly with reference
to the ease, and report says the postponement just
announced is the result oi said appeal.
THE TEST OATH IN THE Sl'I’KEME COURT.
I hear it stale 1, in a uuartcr usually well informed,
that a majority of the Judges of the Supreme Court
have united iu declaring Die test oath of Congress
to be unconstitutional. We had a rumor Iasi week
that the Court was n “tie,” but the source of that
information was not so reliable as in thu'present In
stance.

on the proposition, but (lit- bejiet is that it will pass,
when, rumor says, a report will be made trout tliu

adopted tlie amendment. The West favors the

The New YorkTribnne says, “ the reason why Drake's
Plantation Bitters are so universally used and have
such an liniiaon.ee sale, is that they are always made up
to the original standard, of highly Invigorating material
and of pure quality, although the ptices have so largely
advanced," etc.
The Tribune just hits the nail on the head. The
Plantation Bitters are not only made of pure material,
hut the ..pie are told what it is. The Recipe is pub
lished around each bottle, and the bottles are not re
... in si/e. At least twenty imitations and counter
feits have sprung up. They impose upon the people
once and that's the last of them.
The Plantation Kilters are now nsed In all the Gov
ernment Hospitals,are recommended by the best phv*i
eiaus, and are warranted to produce an immediate bene
licial effect. Facts are stubborn tilings.

New BEUPOBD, Mass., Nov. 24, 1SB3.
Dear Sir: I have been afflicted many years with se
vere prostrating crimps In my limbs, cold feet and
hands, and a general disordered system. Physicians
and medicine failed to relieve me. Some friends in New
York, who were using Plantation Bitters, prevailed
upon me to try them. I commenced with a small wiu*
giassfui after dinner. Feeling belter by degrees, in »
few days I was astonished to liud I lie coldness and
crumps had entirely left me, and i could sleep the night
through, which 1 bad not done for years. 1 feel like
another being. My strength and appetite have also
greatly improved bv the use of the Plantation Bitters.
Respectfully, JUDITH RUSSEL.
If the ladies but knew wbat thousands of them are
constantly relating to us, we candidly believe one-half
of the weakness, prostration and distress experienced
by them would vanish. James Marsh, E-q., of No. I.V.I
West Fourteenth street, New York, says he has three
children, the lirst two are weak and puny, his wife
having been unable to nurse and attend them, but Unit
sin- has taken Plantation Bitters for the last two years,
and has now a child eighteen months old which she lias
nursed and reared herself, ami both are hearty, saucy
and well. The article is invaluable to mothers," etc.
Such evidence might he continued rora volume. I He
best evidence is to try them. They speak for them
selves. Persons of sedentary habits, troubled wiih
weakness, lassitude, palpitation of the heart, lack of
appetite, distress after eating, torpid liver,constipation,
diabetes, etc., will find speedy relief through these
Bitters.
Any person re-filling bottles, or offering to sell Plan
tation Bitters In bulk, by the gallon, or in any manner
except as above, is a swindler and lnlposter, with whom
we shall deal a» the law directs.
