A compound remedy, designed to ho the most
effectual Alleratic that am be made. It is
a concentrated extract of Para SarRaparilla,
so combined with other subttauces of still
greater alterative power as to afl'ord an effec
tive antidote for the diseases Sarsnparilla is
reputed to cure. It is believed that such a
remedy is wanted by those who suffer from
Strumous complaints, and that one which will
accomplish their euro must prove of immense
service to this large class of our afflicted fellow
citizens. How completely this compound will
do it has been proven by experiment on many
of the worst cases to b found of the following
complaints: .
ScuoFur.A and Scnopui.ovs Complaints,
Eiiuptions and Eruptive Disuasm, Uixnits,
Pimples, Blotches, Tumoiis, Salt Hiieitm,
Scald Head, Syphilis and Syphilitic Af
fections, Mercurial Diskasr, Dropsy, Ncu
baloia or Tic Doulouueux, Deuility, Dys
pepsia and Indigestion, Erysipelas, Rosb
on St. Anthony's Fine, and indeed the whole
class of complaints arising Jtom Impurity of
tub Ui.ood.
This compound will DWjiind a great pro
moter of health, when taken in the spring, to
expel the foul humors which fester in the
blood at tlint season of the year. By the time.
ly expulsion of them many rnnkling disorders
are nipped in the bud. Multitudes can, by
the aid of this remedy, spare themselves from
the endurance of foul eruptions and ulcerous
sores, through which the system will strive to
rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to do
this through the natural channels of the body
by an alterative medicine. Cleanse out the
vitiated blood whenever you find its impurities
bursting through the skin in pimples, eruptions,
or sores; cleanse it when you find it is ob
structed and sluggish in the veins ; cleanse it
whenever it Is foul, ana your feelings will tell
you when. Even where no particular disorder
is felt, people enjoy better health, and live
longer, for cleansing the blood. - Keep the
blood healthy, and all is well ; but with this
pabulum or lite disordered, there can be no
lasting health. Sooner or later something
must go wrong, and the great machinery of
Hie is disordered or overthrown.
Sarsaparilla lias, and deserves much, the
reputation of accomplishing these ends. But
the world lias been cgregiously deceived by
preparations of it, partly because the drug
alone hits not all the virtue that is claimed
for it, but more because many preparations,
pretending to be concentrated extracts of it,
contain but little of the virtue of Sarsaparilla,
or any thing else.
During late years the public have been mis
led by large bottles, pretending to give a quart
of Extract of Sarsaparilla for one dollar. Most
of these have been frauds upon the sick, for
they not only contain little, it any, bnrsapa-
ruln, but often no curative properties wliateV'
cr. Hence, bitter and painful disappointment
lias followed tho use of the various extracts of
Sarsaparilla which flood tho market, until the
name itself is justly despised, and has become
synonymous with imposition and cheat. Still
we call this compound Sarsaparilla, and intend
to supply such a remedy as-shall rescue the
name from the load of obloquy which rests
upon it. And wo think we huvc ground for
lulicving it has virtues which aro irresistible
by the ordinary run of tho diseases it is intend
ed to cure. In order to secure their complete
eradication from the system, the remedy should
Injudiciously taken uccording to directions on
th.i bottle.

June 11, 1861.
Sir: In accordance with vone orders. I have
tbe honor to submit the following report of my
command, acting as the advance guard, on the
evening ot tne ma, ana a Driet account or mv
command during! the engagement on tbe follow
ing day, at tbe new County Bridge. I left camo
with my command at 10 P. M., conslstlne of
nity men oi company n, one lieutenant (Uamp-
oreuiDg;, iour Bergenia ana rour corporals i Com
pany I. Cant. Bartlett, one lieutenant (York).
four sergeants and two corporals, crossed tbe
river at Hampton at iu$ r. M.i reached New
market Bridge at 1 A. M., threw ont scouts in
all directions and waited for tbe main body,
which arrived at 3 A. M. According? to tour
orders, I advanced on the road to New County
Bridge, tne point wnere tne enemy was renorted
to have made a stand. A little before daylight,
when within a mile and a quarter of the bridge,
we Qisooverea tne onuying picket guard ot the
enemy, ana were cnaiienged "Who oomes
therel" I replied, "Who stands there?" A
horseman attempted to leave. Corporal Ellison,
of Company H, sprang in advance, directing
him to halt. I supposing the enemy to be in
force, gave the command to fire and charge. In
a moment the affair was over, twenty or thirty
shots had been given and exchanged) the offi
cer or tne guard was captured and disarmed. At
this time, hearing fire in the rear, and suppos
ing mat oar rear guara was attacked, i returned
to follow the main body under Col Daryee, who
was advancing by forced march in direction of
the firing, only to discover that by mistake our
own forces coming in aiQerent directions, and
supuoslng each to be tbs enemy, had fired sev
eral shots before the mistake was discovered. I
again advanced, and at 9 A. M. met with and
drove the picket guards of the enemy, I then
detached a portion of my command, made an
armed reconnoissnnce, and found the enemy
with about from 3,000 to 5,000 men posted In a
strong position on the'oppositesideoftbebridsre
three earthworks and a masked battery on the
rignt ana leu; in aavsuee or. tne stream thirty
pieces of artillery and a large force of cavalry,
all of which Information 1 reported to yo at
once. 1 was ordered to advance and engage the
enemy in throwing out skirmishers on tbe rla-ht
and left of the road leading to the bridge, we
rapidly advanced, supported by the Advance
Guard of Col. Duryee and three pieces of artil
lery under Lieut. Greble of the First Reg. meat
United States Artillery. The enemy soon open
ed fire on ns from the rifled cannon In front.
We answered bis discharges by a cheer, and
continued to advance, olearing all before us, till
we reached a point Just on the edge ofthe woods,
where the fire was so hot and heavy that we
remained as directed by Lieut. Col. Warren till
that gallant officer bad made disposition! to
turn their flanks. The enemy's fire at this
time began to tell upon ns with great effect.
My men were falling one after another, as was
the case of the rest of the command.
After remaining in this position about two
hours, and our object having been accomplished,
numbers of our men being Killed and wounded,
having received a grape snotinrongn my thigh,
which tore off a portion of the rectangle on
Col. Durjee's left shoulder, ptssed through my
leg and killed a soldier in the rear, I withdrew
my men to the skirts of the wood. We man
aged to reach Lieut. Greble'a battery and bring
to his aid several uf my men.' Tbe charge was
then sounded, Lieut. Greble opened fire with
grape and canister, within two hundred yards oi
the enemy's lines. Capte. Winslow, Bartlett
and myself charged with our commands in
front, Cspt. Deuike and Lieut. Daryee (son of
Col. Duryee), and about two handred of the
Troy Rifles upon tbe right, Col. Townsend with
his men to the left; the enemy were forced oat
of tbe flat battery, all the forces were rapidly
advancing, and everything promised a speedy
ylotory, when we were ordered to fall back.
Where this order came from, I do not know.
We maintained our position till Col. Townsend
began to retire with his whole command. Be
ing left thus alone, and no prospects of receiv
ing aid, we ordered the men to fall back, which
they did, and in good order, forming their line
of battle about one nundred and fifty yards in
the rear. A few mlnutee afterward orders came
from Gen. Pierce to oease firing und retire. It
gives me great pleasure to mention the gallant
conduct of Capt. Bartlett, who csme op with tbe
reserve, reinforcing my line, and who wae ever
at the point of danger, encouraging his men.
Lieut. York, in command of my left, and Lieut.
Campbrelling, In command of my right, dis
played the greatest bravery. Lieut. York's
sword wu broken by a grape-shot, and be was
sugntiy wounded In tbe leg.
1 shall ever be grateful to Cspt. Winslow,
who rescued me alter onr forces bad left. He
came to my aid, assisted by Sergeants Onder-
donk and Agnes, at tbe last moment, but in
time to rescue me from the enemy.
I would alio favorably msntlon private Wood,
who brought me valuable information, and who
fired the first shot; private John Dunn, whose
arm was shattered by a cannon ball, and who
bore himself with the greatest bravery, and who
saia to burgeon UUDert, while amputating bis
arm, that he could not have lost it in a nobler
oause. The whole command, men and offloers,
did themselves tbe greatest credit, and, 1 am
satisnea, oan conquer anything except Impossi

Col. Durjee's Official Report to tbe Brigadier
uenerai, ot tne conduct ot omcers ana men un
der bis command at the action near County
Bridge, Is ss follows:
FORTRESS MONROE, Tuesday, June 11, 1861.
Sia: In accordance with your instructions
previously received, I proceeded, on tbe 9th of
June, at llM o'clock P. M , on the march to
The first two miles to Hampton Bridge we
proceeded leisurely along, waiting for the how
itzer, whhh should be placed at tbe bead of tbe
advancing column. Arriving at Hampton
Creek, much delay was occasioned by tbe non
arrival of the surf-boats, which were to convey
the Regiment across the river, end it was 10
o'clock before the column was formed, ready to
posh forward upon tbe other side.
We now advanced rapidly, and soon csme up
with our two companies of skirmishers, under
Captains Bartlett and Kilnatrick, who bad
been dispatched ahead an boor and a half pre
vious. Proceeding steadily on wilhont resting
a moment, we came, about 4 o'olock in the
morning, to Little Bethel, a dlstsnce of about
id miles At this point we discovered and
surprised ths picket guard of the enemy, and a
mounted officer, with lour or five foot, were
taken prisoners. While pushing forward to
ward Big Bstbel, we suddenly, beard a Heavy
fire of musketry and cannon in our rear, be
speaking a severe engagement. Supposing it
to De an attempt of tbe enemy to cut on our
reserve, we immediately counter-marched in
quick aud double quick time, when, having pro
needed abont five miles, we came upon two of
our Regiments, and learned that in the dark
ness of the night they had mistaken each other
for enemies, and that an unfortunate engage
ment, accompanied with some loss, had taken
place. We then, by your command, returned
and advanoedupon Great Bethel, being support
ed by the Seventh Regiment, under Colonel
Bendix, and the Third, under Col. lownsend.
Proceeding to within a mile of the county
bridge, the eolumn halted, Capts. Kilpatrick
and Bartlett having discovered that the enemy
were holding a strong position In battery at tbe
bead of tbe road. . We now drew up in line of
battle on tbe rlgbt, at the skirts of the woods,
and the artillery, two howitzers and a brass six-
pounder, was pushed some thirty roas up toe
road. At this point, Lieut Col. Warren rode
into the field and assumed his position in the
Kegiment, and, tram bis previous knowledge of
tbe ground, proved ot invaluable assistance.
Capts. Winslow, Bartlett and Kilpatrlok, bay
lag been ordered to advance, under Lieut Col.
Warren, as skirmishers, the Regiment was form
ed on the left, from whence I led the column in
person up tbe road towards tbe enemy's battery,
but the fire proving very destructive, we march
ed in good order, till we were covered by the
woods on the right, where we baited for some
time for rest and in order to complete the pre
parations for charging the batteries in flank.
In tbe meantime, Lieu Col. Warren made a
reconnoisance, and reported a plan of attack.
I then led off tbe troops to the left, in tbe
open field, and also to the right, supported on
the right by the German.Rifles. After sever
al attempts to charge tbe batteries, being pre
vented by the creek, we withdrew, by your com
mand, to tbe rear, and having collected our
killed and wounded, snch as we could find, we
proceeded down the main road. Lieut. Col.
Warren, however, with a small detaohment, re
mained and brought away tbe body of Lieut.
Sreble.wlth the field piece he was serving with
such effect at tho time ot bis deatb. Our Chap
lain also remained to care for the wounded, but
being cut off by a oompany of cavalry, he only
escaped by taking to the woods, and escaping
under cover of the night. We continued our
march towards Hampton, and reached the
bridge, having only four killed, twelve wound
ed, and two missing.
The following names deserve an honorable
mention: Lieut. Colonel Warren, for his aid In
forming the plan of attack, and remaining
among the last to bring away a brother officer;
also, Chaplain Winslow, for bla many kind at
tentions to tbe wounded; also Capts. Bartlett,
Kilpatrick and Winslow, for the effective man
ner in which they skirmished before the en
emy's heavy fire; also, Lient. J. Daryee, who
led the charge np to the left flank of the bat
teries; also, Lients York and Campbrelliog;
Surgeon Gilbert, for performing upon tbe field
of battle successful amputations, and for bis
continued attention to the suffering, and wound
ed, not only on the field, but afterwards at the
hospital, whsn almost exhausted; also, Lieut.
Gonv. Carr, who was commanding Company B,
hut Captain being 111, and Lieut. Geo. Duryee;
also, Sergeants Agnes, Onderdonk, Allison, and

officer or private, and I might mention many
more with honor. In closing I cannot but sneak

whole command, stood np nobly in my support.
