Silent Politicians'
The contributorial editor of the
Yorkvillo Enquirer, in his quaint
style, thus notices the silent politi?
cians at th'e present juncture. The
notice is well .worth reading:
Some of ' o.uar contemporaries ex?
press surprise at tho fact that many
of our hitherto voluminous advisers
- and country-savers are now silent
now,' when, ,if ever, we need the
advice and wisdom of experience to
guide us. It does not surprise us.
The case is a very clear one.
If you have overseen a coon np a tree
while the hunter was chopping at the
tree, and watched his course, you can
readily understand the point of our
illustration.
. The coon gets high np in th? tree,
among tho topmost boughs, and se?
lects A fork. He keeps in this fork,
keenly eyeing both the dogs and the
axeman, especially the latter. After
the"tree begins to totter and fairly to
Btatt over' to one side-and there it
no longer a ' doubt which way thc
tree.yiU fall-he jumps.
Our silent politicians are like the
coon.
Whenever it becomes perfectly ap?
parent which way political affairs a?
going tb turn, then these Solon's wil
speak ont-will speak out vociferous;
I ly, as sopn as it is safe for them to dc
so. 1 ' '
Mark these men-these silent So
lons.. They .are cowards, aud w<
want brave men in times like these.
Gov. Perry is a brave man/ Hi
may bo wrongs-we''believe some o
Ivis conclusions ate-but wo a thou
sand times prefer such men to th os
cowardly coon-politicians who ari
waiting until we are ruined, in orde
that they may see what advice win b
most profitable to them to give us.
Away with such patriotism.
To the dogs with such politics.
If inaction is the true policy, le
them say so.
If they believe in radicalism, le
them announce it now.
If Gov. Perry is right, let thei
say so. ,
Here " half a dozen men ka\
spoken, after months of agony an
tyranny? Are these half a dozen o
onr political leaders?
Indeed, seven years ago, {after ?
cession was an inevitable fact,)'we bc
eloquent speakers, and advisers, au
country-savers, so many that, with
dozen each night, it took a month I
hear thetr speeches and all their w
vies.
Where ore all these men?
A few of them sleep on the batt!
fields; bnt the great body of tho
eloquent men never got sleepy
that way.
Eternal silence, it is true, won
become them well; but knowing tb
they are ready (as soon as the ti
begins to fall? tb jump to the fro
ana tell na ali about it, we deem
proper to call their attention to t
subject now.
Col. Wm. C. Preston (peace to 1
honored memory) once described o
tain of our politicians os resembli
the sea gull-that the sea gnll, b
feted, driven and dashed onward
the violence of the storm at s
seeks a foothold at last npon so

above-and fancies, poor thing, t

VERDICT Ol THE FACULTY
STIMULANTS INDISPENSABLE AS ME?
DICINES.-The ?tost distinguished physi?
cians in the United States have recently
been placed on the witness stand, and have,
with ono voice, declared that pure stimu?
lants are valuable medicinal agents. This
decision of the faculty refers especially to
medicated stimulants, of which tho purest
and beat known is HOSTETTER'S STO?
MACH BITTERS. Its basis is the alco?
holic principle of the finest rye grown in
tho United States, and its herbal ingre?
dients comprise tba extracts of a largo
number of plauts, barks and roots, pro?
duced in vanouB parts of tho world, and
all noted in the countries to which they are
indigenous for their powerful uauatiyepro
perties. As an invigo&aul -and .-ternie, tho
value of the Bitters eau scarcely be over?
rated. Hence ita extraordin?r}- effect in
fever and ague and intermittents and re?
mittents of every type. Its auti-bilious
properties aro marvelous. Persons of bi?
lious habit, by taking P small quantity
onco or twice a day,may completely change
their constitutional tendency to liver dis?
ease, and escapo all the unpleasant conse?
quences which arise either from tho undue
sensitiveness or the unnatural torpidity ol
the biliary organ. Chrome constipation is
eradicated thoroughly, and in a very short
space ot time, by small doses of this whole?
some regulator, taken ni;,ht and morning;
and for ali the disorders which are super?
induced by exhalations irom decomposing
vegetable and animal matter in.tho streets
of cities, or the miasma of swampy dis?
tricts, it is, when taken as a protective and
preventive medicine, the most reliable ol
all safe-guards. July 31 tc

Heinitsh's Queen's Delight,
EXTRACTS FROM LETTERS" "The
Qneen'a Delight is beginning to
awaken the attention of oar physicians.
Its romarkablo curative power is seen in
its wonderful effect upon disease. As a
blood purifier, there, is no medicine like it
known to the profession. A gentleman
told mo that his son has been taking the
Queen's Delight, and is moto benefited try
it than by any other medicine. He wants
a dozen bottles." ;
Extract from a letter: "It is due to yam
Icy stato in this public manner, in order
that thc people may know tbo truth, that
I have tried your Queens Delight, and
fonnd it not only what you said it waa-"a
?ture medicine"-but the best medicine I
lave ever taken for ? ruptions and general
bad health. I had an emption, ail over my
body, with impaired digestion and disor?
dered liver, and have tried a groat many
medicines without any benefit. I have
taken one bottle of your Queen's Delight,
the eruption has disappeared, my appetite
is better, my liver and digestion is itt
Eroved. I ara satisfied one or two more
ottles will euro me."
Extract from a letter: "At the close of
the war, my constitution waa shattered. I
could not eat, sleep qr perform any duty
whatever, such was'my prostrate condi?
tion. Medicino and medical aid I had in
abundance, such was my condition np te?

Extract from a letter-Wonderful effect
of only one bottle: "I have used only a
half bottle of'Qneen'a Delight* for botts -
and eruptions of the akin and itching hu
l mora of the blood, which annoyed me very
much. I am ontirely enrod. I think yo?*
medicine a valuable one."
A remarkable case of liver complaint mufti
