NY.-It was with some difficulty the General was brought to the stand, [of the impeachment committee,] believing, it is said, that some effort wonld be made to draw from him his ?iolitical views. After a week's de ay, the General was sworn, and testi? fied that he was consulted by Presi? dent Lincoln on the subject of restoring the State of North Carolina to her former relations to the Union; that Mr. Lincoln read to him a pro? clamation he had prepared on the subject, and that the proclamation issued by President Johnson relative to the State of North Carolina was identically the same as the one which Mr. Lincoln had read to him just prior to his death. This becomes important, iu view of the fact that the advocates of impeachment rest their cnaa principally upou tho policy of the President in restoring the Southern States. The Judiciary Committee, it is understood, stand five to four against impeachment, i and the majority report will be made ? by the Chairman, Hon. James WU- 1 son, of Iowa. I Washington Letter in Boston Post. TRADE AT THE SOUTH.-There is much depression in trade circles at the South. A correspondent at Mem? phis writes: "There is much de? spondency in mercantile circles, over the low prices, which will not bo suf? ficient to pay the tax and cost of pro? ducing. Many predict harder times in the South next year than ever before experienced. There will be little cotton raised, unless Congress removes the tax. Tho impression here is that the present low prices are caused, to some extent, by a movement in New York and Liver? pool, to work upon the necessities of the Southern people." BOSLNESS IN NEW YORK.-The He? rald, of Monday last, says: "Business is exceedingly dull at present in the city. A prominent firm doing busi? ness as machinists on Railroad Ave? nue have been obliged, owing to the state of trade, to discharge lor the present all of their workmen-; with the exception of two, and it is their intention to close their shop entirely for one or two months. In other factories in the oity the same expo? dient hos been adopted, and it is feared that a general stagnation is to follow. "_ THE PROVINCES GOOD.-The Epis? copal Bishop of Rhode Island recent? ly preached a missionary sermon in London, in the course of which he said: Ho was sure he should not appeal in vain for that aid and sympathy in behalf of the Southern provinces of the United States which his Right Reverend brother had in tho morning invoked for the Northern. INDIANA DROPS THE NEGRO.-An Indiana correspondent of the New York Tribune says that the project of' calling an extra session of the Legislature, for tho purpose of pass? ing a universal suffrage amendment, has been finally dropped, "after tho Unfortunate results of tho g&lue ex? periment in Ohio." Joseph Dion, billiard champion ol America, hus challenged John Roberts, the English champion, to piny three games-English, French and American-for $10,000, in gold, each, and the championship of the world. Tho Spanish Government offers to Louis Napoleon ita assistance in the support of the Temporal Power. It must have a presentment that the present dynasty of Spain is not likely to survive long the downfall of the States of tho Church. A SAD CALAMITY.-On Monday last, the dwelling honse of Mr. Alexander Monroe, about six miles above Cam? den, was destroyed by fire. None of the family were at home at the time, and everything he possessed WM burned.-Camden Journal. It is understood that the purpose of the visit of General Beauregard to the President and General Grant was to have restored to him certain lands which he owns near Memphis, and which are now occupied by the Freed? men's Bureau offioers. The cost of the proposed East Uiver bridge between New York and Brook? lyn is estimated at $6,675,537. PRIVATE BOARDING.

A DANGEROUS SEASON.-An almost unparalleled quantity of rain hos fallen during the aummer. Vegetation has been wonderfully thick and rank, and, as it de? cays, an unusual amount of sickness may be expected unless proper means arc taken to prevent it. Fever and ague and bilious remittents already prevail to an alarming extent, and as tho fall advances, and tho malarious night fogs bocomo beaver, tho sick list is likely to increase, both in the city and the country. It is, therefore, only an act of common prudenco to keep the vital forces in full vigor, BO that they may resist tho unhealthy influences of the season. Re? inforced bv the tonic operation of HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS, Tho system, howevor weak and suscepti? ble, naturally will, in ninecasea out of ten, successfully combat every spocies of at? mospheric poison by which epidemics are produced. urning tho months of September, Oc? tober and November, tho difference in temperature between day and night is vary great, and the chilling dews and mists of tho season are the prolific causes of in? digestion, cholera morbus, diarrhoea and dysentery. Bearing this in mind, remem? ber, also, that the BITTERS not only in? vigorate tho stomach and brace the nerves, but act specifically upon the bowels and the liver, imparting to those important organs regularity and tone. It is not rea? sonable to expect immunity from preva? lent complaints if no precautions aro taken to escape them.

THE TRIUMPH OF ART I MORE TESTIMONY IN FAVOR OF Heinitsh's Queen's^Delight, EXTRACTS FROM LETTERS: "The Queen's Delight ie beginning to awaken the attention of our physicians. Its remarkable curative power is seen in its wonderful effect upon disease. AB a blood purifier, there is no medicine like it known to the profession. A gentleman told me that his son hus been taking the Queen's Delight, and is moro benefited by it than by any other medicine. He wants a dozen bottles." Extract from a letter: "It is dne to you to state in this public manner, in order that the peoplo may know tho truth, that I have tried your Queen's Delight, and found it not only what you said it was-"a Eure medicine"-but the best medicine I ave ever taken for eruptions and general bad health. I had an eruption all over my body. <vith impaired digestion and disor? dered liver, and have tried a great 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 im Eroved. I am satisfied ono or two more ottles will cure me." Extract from a letter: "At the close of the war, my constitution was shattered. S could not oat, Bleep or perform any d?ty whatever, such was my prostrate condi? tion. Medicine and medical aid I had bx abundanco, such was my condition up to-a few mouths since, when I began the uso of your Queen's Delight. I have used two> bottles, my constitution is greatly' im? proved, my appetite is good, enjoy refresh? ing sleep, and am ablo to perform my share of dailv labor." Extract from a letter-Wonderful effect of only ono bottle: "I have used only a half bottle of 'Queen's Delight' for boils and emptions of the skin and itching fin mors of the blood, which annoyed mo very much. I am entirely cured. 1 think 70er medicino a valuable ono." A remarkable case of liver complaint and headache cured by tho use cf "Heinitsh'a (jueen's Delight :" A lady of unquestioned worth and reputation voluntarily gives tes? timony of tho wonderful effects of thia medicine. Sho has been from early years a martyr to headaches, caused by imper? fect action of the liver, producing intenso headache and pain over tho eyes. She ha? taken only bottles, and assures UB of the perfect cure it bas made. Bbe now en? joys good health. Still another: "During last spring, I had' been troubled with obstinate chilla and fovor, which, when cured, left my system in a wretched condition, blood impure, and I was afflicted with an angry, and, aa I at ono timo thought, an incurable, cutaneous* eruption over my entire body. The most violent remedies suggested failed to work a cure, until, at tho instance of a friend, I triod Dr. Heinitsh's Qncen's Delight. Less than two bottles cured me, leaving my skin in a healthy condition. My general health is as good as over. For such purposes, I havo, ovor einco my euro, unhesitatingly recommended your Queen's Delight." Don't buy any but tho right kind; AU' genuine Queen's Delight bas the copy-right mark on tho outside, and it is the only modicine which produces these wonderful cures.
