I must oi nfe-is that i had an aversion to Patent Med icines from the "thousand and one" quack "Bit ters," whose only aim seems to be to palm offsweet ened and drugged liquor upon the community in a sly way, and the tendency of which. 1 fear, is to make many a confirmed drunkard. Upon learning that yours was purely a mediolnal preparation I took it with happy effect. Its action, not only upon the stomach, but noon the nervous Hvstam. wan prompt and gratifyisa.

The committee for increasing the radical majority in the House by all iiieang, fair or foul, have not covered their tracks well. They cheated A. C Baldwin, of Michigan, out bf his seat in Congress to give it to a blatant radical. They have cheated D. W. Voorhees.of Indiana, out of his seat to give it to another, and are still at work increas ing their majority. But they have worked in the guise of a committee on Elections. The following extracts from a speech of Mr. ,Voorhees show that the mask was torn off Bonoenow anu tneir real character exposed, not to say avowed : ; ', . Mr. VOORHEE3-I will suppose that the seatot a member ot this House is contested in the usual way ; that the case is reached and taken up by the committee of Elec tions; that full and elaborate argument is heard by both parties to the contest, ex tending through three days; that. all the evidence is in, arid so far as the contest and the sitting member are concerned, the case is closed and submitted to the committee. I will suppose that the sitting member Is politically very obnoxious to seven out of the nine members ot the committee, and has no charitable constructions to expect at their hands; that he Informed them in ine argument or tne case that ail he ex pected or asked was simply what the law and the facts would compel them to give ; that bare naked justice, after all doubtful points have been ruled against him. was all he sought to confirm his title to his seat. 1 will suppose that after the close of the argument, the committee, of its own motion, and against the wishes of both par ties, took the whole matter under advise nient during nearly the space of a week, at the end ot which time its mem bers announced themselves ready to- vote. I will suppose Chat thereupon the roll of the contnittee was called for the yeas and nays, and that every member of the com mittee, with but one exception, answered that the sitting member was entitled to his seat; that the one dissenting vote was giv en by the chairman ; that then, for some reason ot which we are. all profoundly ig norant, this action of the committee in fa- vor ot the sitting member was withheld from this House, and that alter the lapse oi nearly another week, during which time no more evidence was taken, no more argu ment heard, and do lurcher notice given, at least to the sitting member, a diii'crent conclusion was reached, and the contestant declared to be elected by the very same men who a few days bclore had solemnly declared that he was not ! I need not st n to characterize such a proceeding with epi thets. ' It will And its proper estimation in the minds of all honest men here and else where. Nor need I pause to inquire into the motives which governed such conduct. There is no eye so blind as not to discern them, and no heart so calloused by partisan prejudice not to be pained at their exhibl- t on. Yet such has beenthe action of the com mittee on the case now under consideration. Now let him answer a direct auestion. Did not this committee, with the exceotkm of the gentleman himself, once vote, Feb ruary 1st, upon the roll call of its members, by yeas and nays, that I was entitled to tne seat 1 now claim, and this, too, attcr lull discussion and lengthy advisement f I demand an answer, and I dare him to make it. Mr. DAVIS Does tho gentleman sun pose that 1 am going to violate the rules of tins House and state what transpired in the committee roomr daughter on DeuiO' cratic side. Mr. V00RI1EES But for the sake of ar gument, suppose we admit all that Mr. IVncl.h, ..1. .!..-.. U . .1 .' . . ii mnuuiuc uiaimsi UUfJJMJSU WCUUlUlb lie has proven that he ought to have received a hundred more votes than he did. Docs it follow that therefore the votes which were cast for me, and concerning which there is no question of Illegality raised, shall be to tally rejected? Will you disfranchise a thousand legal voters on such grounds? What is the object in contesting an elec tion? Is it not to ascertain who has the most legal votes by a recount noon all the evidence that can be furnished? IFAo doubts m this case as to where the, legal majori ty rests t The contestant himself make no ore- tense that he received more votes than I did. nor as many, according to his own estimate, by near jour nunarea ; our, you are asked to en forcean arbitrary and technical rule, found ed neither in law or justice, in order to re duce my majority by taking away votes as pure aud leal as any which ever upheld an election. The true rule oflawlsas It is found in the statutes of Indiana, and I am defending my rights here according to her laws as wen as tne laws of the States and federal uovernment generally. I quote irom i oavin x xioru, statutes 01 Indiana, page 318: ... No Irregularity or malconduct of anv member or olllcer of a board of iudses or canvassers shall set aside the election of any person, unless such irregularity or nialcoaduct was such as to cause the con testee to be declared elected when he had not received the highest number of lpml votes: nor Shall anv election 1 or. oai.lo for illegal votes, unless the number thereof given to the eontestee, If taken from him, would reduce the number of his legal votes below the number of legal votos given to some other person for the same office." Sir; where is the evidence of Irreo-ninr. Ity or. malconduct on the part of any offi cer connected with this election,, which caused me to be declared elected when I had not in fact received the highest num- ber of legal votes? There is not a svllnhle of such proof. Whore Is the evidence that i received Illegal votes, which, if taken from tne, would reduce my majority of Ave hundred and thirty-four to a mlnnrit.vV Nowhere. Allow me the votes, whose legality no one questions, and allow the contestant nil M ctaims to nave received, and J am content.. : Mr. Speaker, I have but little mora to say, and but one favor to ask. Yon know, and I know, and this House and the coun try know, that I have the legal majority of votes t but if the report of the eomml'rra is to be sustained, let.it be done on its true ground. I have been your fair foe. I have met you in open, honorable warfare, and I am entitled at least to candid hostility at your hands. I have neither skulked nor dodged ou this floor, and If a saoriflce is required to appease the Dolitlcal Mnlnnh which has so long presided here, you have selected the proper victim. lie will -not shrink from the blow. God being my help er, this political gibbet shall not be ' mat ter of reproach to me or mine. If you wish to 'purge Parliament" and rednee this al ready fractional Congresg to a still greater uniformity of opinion, you hold the ax, and 1 defy its edge as well as the malice at ts executioners." Strike, but you cannot kill. Banish nie, sir; my heart is not here. "It U in my beautiful Western home. Iam think. log of that people who have so often cov ered me with their affection as with a shield in tne nour or storm and danger, To them I will triad! v- co."

Sir, now let the notiso proceed, - The. gentleman from PetuiM lvanla (Mr;:Ste-i venf), two days ago, in connection with the' election contest then under consideration, said; , "This question may seem to some : gentlemen to be a small matter, but in view of thick-coming events one vote may prove to be of great value here." . .'. ,, ',.

"The denunciation with which this veto has been met and the clamor Which poli ticians have been in haste to tree uti. will avail them nothing, I olalru thatthe Amer ican people in his nomination and in th nomination fcf Mr.' Lincoln, have pnssed upon this identical question, and tbat our armies when they marched on to victory, from the time that the war was first made victory and defeat were alike borne by our armies until final triumph perched up on our bannerthis identical doctrine pro claimed by Andrew Johnson In his message. has been the animating principle ot our . itepuDiic. . ... "The President of the' United States,, reared In Tennessee, among the people of the South, had probably more private griev ances than any man In his State, or in the Southern States, for he was persecuted at the outbreak of this rebellion, and driven, from his home, his property was confiscat ed, and every indignity was heaped upon him; and yet, notwithstanding that fact, forgetful of his private grievances, and only thinking of the good of his country, he has chosen to stand by the declared doc trine on which weehtcred into this contro versy. Cheers. He has shown himself capable ot rising above those petty griefs which are merely personal to himself, and for the sake of peace and harmony, aud for the sake of his country, lie is willing to forget all, and give to these people the hand of fellowship, and bring them back into the Union in order that we: may have Arm and perpetual peace. 1 Now I can understand, and every man who has lived in one of these border States can understand, why it is that this animos ity ling been so much more bitter, and so much more personal, in the border States than elsewhere. Here in Missouri, where the tide of battle swayed to and fro, and al most every man's fireside was invaded by the enemy, and outrages have been com mitted by persons belonging to one or the other party; thpse things are all calculated to engender bitterness which it is difficult to torgeu and which it requires just such manhood as is to be found in Andrew John son to forget and forgive. Great applause, and hisses irom the disuuionists. . But which, my friends, it is absolutely neces sary should be done in order that we may have peace, for we can not have it upon any other terms. It would be utterly .im possible to have any thing like peace if this warfare is kept np if the spirit of persecu tion is kept up. This spirit of persecution, Intolerance and malignity seems to be more rampant here than auy where else out of the internal regions that I have ever read of. Cheers. It' this spirit is not checked, how is it to be supposed that we can ever'' have any thing like peace and. security for persons and property, if men are to be per- scented lor acts which they have committed heretofore, when such acts were not crimi nal under any law that has hitherto exist ed ? If we hiint those people to their hbles and push them into the mountain, they will become as wild beasts they will repel the. injury wnerever they hayo it in tnelr power, whether upon a single individual or upon two or three. We will make for ourselves what England has made tor herself in Ire land by her system of repression." President Johnson Indorsed by Union Soldiers. On the 2d instant, at a large meeting of Union soldiers, helil at Oakland, Allegany county, Md.,the following resolutions were unanimously adopted : liesolved, That by no word or act has Andrew Johnson forfeited his claim upon the confidence of the Union-loving people of the land. His firmness in opposing the heresy of secession will, we hope, be equal ed by his firmness in opposing the lusane measures advocated by such sectionalists as Sumner and Stevens, which can have no other tendency than to alienate the people of the country, and revive those sectional animosities which brought on the war. Resolved, That his opposition to negro suffrage meets with our entire approbation, and we pledge ourselves to support no man for any position, either high or low, who has favored, does favor, or whom we believe will ever favor, negro suffrage In the District of Columbia or any other portion of the United States. Resolved. That we respect and honor President Johnson for the gratitude he has so often expressed for the service rendered by the white soldiers; believing as we do (and as certain Senators do not) that all the honor, all the credit, all the substantial tokens ot gratitude Bhould not be given to the negro soldiers to the exclusion 6f the white soldiers. Effect of Kind Words. In the life of Henry Willson. the mur derer, he relates the following to show that although hardened in crime he was not in sensible or indifferent to the effect of kind words: . When we got in front ot the house, we saw what we took to be a man and his wife, and three young women and a boy, eatiug supper. I proposed to Tom that we should go in and ask to warm, and sit down by the stove a few minutes, and if I would, look over the chances a little, and I con cluded that we could not guard the doors aud windows sufficiently to prevent the escape of any one, I would say : "Come Tom, let's be going ;'' but if I should Bay, "Well, Jack, are you ready?" he was to; place himself between the front windows,, to guard them, and 1 would guard the door, . draw our revolvers, and demand a surren- der. I told Tom uot to shoot any ons, un-, less It was necessary to prevent their es-i cape, and i we would tlethetn ail rob tho house of what we wanted, then kill them and. set Are to the house; and If any oue . should come in while we were At work, w were going to shoot him as he should Come in at the door. 1 11 - ...:........
