As a General Tonic, HOSTKTTMiWS HITTtiRS produce effects which must he experienced or witnessed be fore they can lie fully appreciated. In case of Constitution al Weakness, Premature Decay and Debility, and Decrepitude arising from Old Age, it exercises an electric influence. In the convalescent stage* of all diseases it operates as a de lightful invigorant. When the power* of nature are relaxed, it operates to reinforce and re-establish them. The weak stomach is rapidly invigorated, and the appetite restored by this agreeable Tonic,and hence it works wonders in case of DYSPEPSIA, and in less confirmed forms of Indi gestion. Acting a* a gentle and painless aperient, as well as upon the liver, it also invariably relieves the Constipation in duced by irregular action of the digestive secretive organs. Persons of feeble habit, liable to Nervous attacks. Lowness of Spirits and Fit* of Languor, find prompt and permanent relief from the Bitters. The testimony on this point is most conclusive, and comes from both sexes. The agony of BILIOUS COLIC is immediately assuaged by a single dose »f the stimulant, and by occasionally resort ing to it, the return of the complaint may be prevented. Last, though not least, it is the ONLY SAFE STIMULANT, being manufactured from sound and Innoccnons materials, and entirely free from the acid elements present more or less in all the ordinary tonics and stomachics of the day.

Good-rye to Johnson. —The Gold Hill News hns finally concluded it impossible to support Johnson, and remarks : —“lt can no longer he questioned by any intelligent and earnest lover of our Nation that President Johnson has thrown the whole weight of the Federal patronage at his command. Against this conclusion we have for a long time contended ; believing the Presi dent's professions of adhesion to the doctrines of the Cnion party as laid down in the platform of 18(14, upon which he was nominated and elected Vice President of the United States. But, alas ! we find Andrew Johnson, to-day reciting words of National import that he may practically argue for the restoration of rebels to power. By the measure of faith and charity we have exhibited toward him and his administration, up to the date of his defiant declaration of recreancy to the party that has conferred upon him the high est honors in the Itepublic, we experience a pro portionate intensity of indignation and disgust at his developed character.” An Example of Johnson's Unionism. —Not long since Secretary Stanton sent the name of Col. Win. H. Stokes, of Tennessee, to the Presi dent to be nominated for a brevet, in recognition of his eminent services on the field of battle.— Johnson became so furious thereat that he drew his pen across the paper, without waiting to have the official act duly and decently canceled. The President can pardon rebels by wholesale, but he cannot recognize meritorious services in an officer of the Union army, if that officer hns the manliness to differ with him touching the man ner of reconstructing the rebel States. ' An Item for Trinity Farmers. —The editor of the Rural World relates that on a recent trip in St. Clair county, Illinois, we saw hundreds of acres o' land covered with straw. The ground had been plowed and harrowed, and marked off, and potatoes dropped, and the whole surface cov ered about six inches deep with straw. The po tatoes have no further attention till digging time, when an immense crop is obtained. The straw keeps the weeds down, and the soil cool and moist. The straw is raked away in autumn,and there lie the potatoes white and clean. The Sacramento lice is our authority for say ing that General Bidwell has written to friends in this State that he has had sufficient honors in the Congressional line, and that he will not be a candidate for re-election. If Andrew Johnson succeeds in carrying out his already announced desires, no representation will be wanted from California, as it does not favor his policy. We think it safe to assert that General Bidwell will be among the prominent candidates for next Gov ernor of California. Atlantic Cable Tariff.— A brother of Cyrus W. Field explains through the New York Times why the Atlantic Cable Company have fixed the charges of telegraphing at $5 a word. The Com pany was organized in 18.10, and during the ten years which they have been engaged in the en terprise have sunk ten millions of dollars, and the ygk of again losing it is not yet over. Un der Ippsc circumstances it is not reasonable to think that the Company should be content with simple interest at the first moment of success. Colldn't Raise the “ Ready.”— Messrs. Mid- j dleton & Roberts, who proposed to start a Dorn-1 ocratic paper in Grass 1 alley, announce that they have abandoned the intention, ns they fail ed to get sufficient pecuniary assistance. Demo crats, generally, are not apt to pay money foran article they don't need.— Morning Call. A remarkable acknowledgment, considering the source. The Call is mad at being read out of that party by the Examiner. The inhabitants of a noted fever and ague dis trict in Ohio are said to turn their “ shakes ” to some account. They climb into the top of a ii shell-bark ” as the chill is coming on, and by the time the “personal earthquake” leaves them there is not a hickory nut left on the tree. Sherman and his Tool. —General Sherman is thus spoken of by the South Carolina Columln an: “If there are two names which we should select to tvpcfy all that is fiendish in human na ture, they’are those of Sherman, the arch incen diary, and of Logan, his tool. In last week * A'**r», speaking of the races at Knight’s Landing, the tvpcs made us say, “ Our head is full of racert. 1 ' For “racers ’ read “ra ces.” We mention this to stop the supply of fine toothed combs which our sympathizing friends are sending ns.— I Woodland Eetes.

It was finally ascertained that hemeant “army worms.” ii Did any of you ever see an elephant's skin?” asked the master of an infant’s school. “I have ” said a six-year old at the foot of the class. “ Where?” inquired the teacher, amused by his earnestness. “On the elephant !” wag the reply.

The triumphs of electricity over time and dis tance, of which the success of the Atlantic Ga ble furnishes the most impressive illustration, re calls to mind the following lines, written by Rev. John Pierpont during the Presidency of General Taylor: *■ flic warrior statesman laying down his pen, Retires to bed in Washington at ten; The lightning courier leaps along the line, An«l at St. Louis tells the tale at nine; Halting a thousand miles whence he departed. And getting there an hour befc>re he started.’* The New York correspondent of the Sacramen to Union reproduces from the Independent, of that city, the following vivid picture of the first message from Egypt to America : i- On Monday, July 30th, Cyrus W. Field re ceived a message of congratulation from Ferdi nand dc Lesseps, the projector of the Suez Ca nal. It was dated at Alexandria, in Egypt, the same day, at half past one o'clock, p. m., and re ceived in Newfoundland at half past ten, a. m. — Let one look at the globe and see over what a space that message flew. It came from the fur thest East, from the laud of the Pharaohs and the Ptolemies ; it passed along the shores of Af rica. and under the Mediterranean, more than a thousand miles, to Malta ; thence it leaped to the continent and shot across Italy and over the Alps, and through France, under the Channel to London : then across England and Ireland, till from the cliffs of Valenlia it struck straight into the Atlantic, darting down the submarine moun tain which lies off the coast, and over the hills and valleys of the watery plain, resting not till it touched the shore of the New IVorld. In this morning's llight it had passed over one-fourth of the earth’s surface, and so far outstripped the sun in his course that it reached its destination three hours before it was sent. IV ho can say that the age of miracles is past ?” The laying of the first Atlantic Cable brought from the pen of John G. Saxe the following bal lad in praise of the “ courage, faith and zeal ” of the projector. The eulogy is now better de served than ever. Verily, 11 poetry is prophe cy.” and few changes are required to adapt the lines to the last and great success of the most stupendous of modern miracles : now CYRUS LAID THE CABLE. (Vine listen all .into my song, It is no silly fable ; ’Tis all about the mighty coni They call the Atlantic Cable. Brave Cyrus Field, he said, says lie, I have a pretty notion, That 1 can run a telegraph Across the Atlantic Ocean. Then all the people laughed, and said: They’d like to see him do it! He might get half-seas-over, but He never could go through it. Ti» carry out his fmlisli plan Ho never would l»e able ; He might an well g<> hang himself With his Atlantic Cable, But Cyrus was a valiant man, A fellow of decision, And heeded not their mocking words, Their laughter and derision. Twice did his bravest efforts fail. And yet his mind was stable ; He wan’t the man break his heart, Because be broke the Cable! “Once more! my gallant boys,” he cried; “Three times! —you know the fable!” (I*ll make it thirty, muttered ho, But 1 will lay the Cable!) Once more they tried —hurrah! hurrah! What means this great commotion? The Lord he praised!—the Cable's laid Across the Atlantic Ocean. Loud ring the hells ; for flashing through Six hundred leagues of water, Old Mother England's benizon Salutes her eldest daughter. Now long lire President and Queen: And long live gallant Cyrus— And may his courage, faith and zeal YVith emulation fire us. And may we honor evermore Tin* manly, hold and stable. And tell our sons, to make them brave. How Cyrus laid his Cable! An Answer to tlie Randall Feeler. The Postmaster at New Canaan, Connecticut, sent to Washington the following answer to the Randall feeler, with regard to the Philadelphia Convention, which is well worth reading ; Tost Office, New Canaan, Fairfield I CoiXTY, (Cuun.), Aug. 6, 1860. / Hon. Alexander W. Randall— Sir ; — Your circular for the call of the Wilkes Booth Con vention to meet in Philadelphia on the 14th inst. lias been duly received, under the frank of the eminent Pennsylvania Senator. I suppose lam indebted to Ibe honorable Connecticut renegade for this early “smoking out” attention. For this mark of extreme kindness he and you have my thanks. Most of the apparent purposes of the call meet my entire approval, but chaff is at a discount just now. No man unwilling to be deceived can mistake the patent object of Hie intended gathering, ris ing as it does from the ashes of tiie assassin.— Had Wilkes Booth never lived the Convention would never have been called. Now, every sym pathizing friend of his foul deed, from Maine to California, indorse it. Every indulgent, concili nry advocate of the interesting ceremony of bully ing, bludgeoning and murdering public men (who advocate the rights of men) approve it! Kverv patriotic resolver “ that the war for the Union is a failure” is in ecstacies over it! Even bitter Secessionist, every fighting rebel in the terrible war that has cost this nation hundreds of thousands of lives and billions of money, ev ery conniving traitor that has been struggling to tear down the Government that Washington planted and Lincoln saved, is singing peans of glory to it. And every press in the entire United States now advocating it is obliged to excuse, palliate and defend the burnings, murders and massacres continually cropping out throughout volcanic rcbeldom. From all such sympathies, tendencies and operations, Mr. Randall, 1 would most respectfully respond, “ Good Lord, deliver me.” My conscience, my manhood, is my own, to me they are of more value than any office on earth. You have my answer. Briefly yours, NOAH W. HOYT, Postmaster. P. S.—Private—lf our noble, sober, patriotic, honorable and trustworthy President would but pardon Jeff, in time to make him President of the Convention, he would add another to the many grateful obligations he has already con ferred upon the millions of loyal hearts who oo him out of the grasp of. the Abel, and e evated him to the point where Booth and -Uzeroth swung him to power and infamy- * “Johnson cannot be nnlrue to'the Fnion now, for be was faithful in the early hellion ” say bis followers. Benedict Arnold s friends made the same defense for him ; he had even won a brilliant reputation in the field, as Johnson never did. Bnt when a man tries to sell his country to its enemies, and is stopped in the very act of delivering the goods, previous character does not serve him much.— Virginia Enterprite. NUMBER 36. [From the Sacramento Bcr.] The Boys lu Bine. It is undoubtedly true that there never was in all the wide world, nor at any time, so great an array of thinking bavonets as rallied to put down the late rebellion. The present Prussian army is very intelligent, and is much better drilled than ours was at first, but there has been no million and a half of them, nor will there be. It was pretty severe on the boys to leave their plows, shops, stores, offices and schools, and learn to submit to strict military discipline; but after a little, and before the fight was over, could obey with great alacrity. If they had been ordered, after the surrender of the rebels in Virginia, to gather up all the heaps upon heaps of Confederate muskets and return them to the paroled prisoners who had just laid them down, they might have done it. If, after that, they had been commanded to pass their own over to the gray clad crowd, they could have done that too. Or if in the beat of the battle they had been ordered to bout face and demolish the supply train, burn ail their ammunition and slaughter the teamsters and servants at the Sanitary and Christian Commissions, they might have done that. Or they might have been induced to fire upon a company of Paymasters coming to settle with them. In' the flush of victory and heat of battle they would have done almost anything at the command of their chosen and tried leaders, and inquired the reason afterwards. If on that sad and joyous day, when the war-worn veterans filed past the new-made President and his Cabinet at the Capital, the Commander-in-Chief had led them to the Halls of the Nation and ordered them to arrest “the usurpers calling themselves the Congress of the United States,” the deed might have been done. But that time has passed —the grandest army of the earth has dissolved.—- The soldier has again become a citizen; the bayonet rusts in the castle of the sovereign, and the Confederate commander at the head of his B. B. Brigade may shont himself hoarse, may send out his underlings with untold wealth of crumbs, may display his sideboards groaning with oysters, turkey, and champagne, and all the delicacies of all the seasons, it will be all in vain. No graduate of Libby. Belle Isle, Salis burv, Andcrsonville or Fort Pillow can be charm ed by the voice from that lion’s skin, though it roar never so gently. Though Stanton, Grant and Beecher add their might of lungs, and coax and cajole, it will avail little. The common schools and the people’s college with its four years course, have done the work of educating the soldiers beyond the lead of leaders wander ing into devious paths. They may call them to Chicago or Cleveland, or wherever they please, very few will go. And those that do can never be brought to condemn the Congress which has fed them from the bounties of the people; Con gress which has stood firmly by the soldier in the day of peril, furnished means without stint, and been the bulwark behind him: assailed as fierce ly as cowardly northern traitors dare ; Congress, the bravest, truest, wisest, most far-seeing band of men ever intrusted with the legislative power of a great nation in the darkest times of pre eminent danger, and has ever been found equal to the emergency. Ask a soldier to a council to defame Congress! Ask him to whip his wife, slander his mother, dash out the brains of his in fant ! ask him to call himself all the pet names flung so freely at him by the peace Democracy during the war ! ask him to spit and trample upon himself as a knave and fool for loving his country and freely offering his life for her; but Oh, mad men, do not ask the soldier to thrust his bayonet, rusted by traitor blood, into the great warm heart of Congress ! There are crimes that mankind by instinct shrink from mentioning. Put this in the category : Let par ricide be respectable, but speak not of Congress cide. Ask anything in reason, or out of it, but ask no soldier to smite with rude hand the ap ple of the eye of this nation. The “BaKin-AND-BiTTEtt” Resolutions. —Here is the Philadelphia Platform as drafted by Nas by in a “prophetic dreem." It resolved that, Whereas, there bed bln a season uv unpleasantniss in our national history with, owin to circumstansis over wich nobody bed any control, extended over several periods uv ninety days each ; and Whereas, the unpleas antniss resulted from the two sections viewin things each from its own stand-pint, instid uv viewin things from the other's stand-pint; and Whereas, both parties wuz highly in the wrong, partikerlerly the North ; and Whereas, the South, with a magnanimity unknown in history, bed thrown down her arms, and wuz ready to reaoom her old position in the Goverment, nay more, to take more than her old share uv the trouble uv runnin the Goverment; therefore be it Retailed, That we are for the Yoouyun ez it wuz. That the persistency uv a sectional Congress in continuin the unpleasantniss wich hez to some extent disturbed our system uv Goverment, in legislating while eleven sovereign States is unrepresented, is pizen. That we view with alarm the manifest determ ination uv Congress to centralize in theirselves the law-makin power uv the Goverment, and we pledge our support to our worthy Chcef Magis trate, who is a second Jaxon, in his efforts to cheek their centralizin schemes by vetoin all they may do. That all traces uv the late unpleasantniss may be wiped out ez soon ez possible, we demand uv Congress an appropriation for plowin over all the fields on wich the citizens uv the two sections who wuz indoostby their respective Goverments, so-called, to carry muskets, cum together, par tikerlerly them on wich our Southern brethren got the worst uv the dispoots that ensood. That Congress shood, ez soon ez it convenes, change the names uv Murfreesboro, Gettysburg, Atlanta, Vicksburg, et settry, to sich names ez Smitbboro, Brownsburg, Jonesville, et settry, that the serious unpleasantnisses wich occurred at them places may be remembered no more for ever. . That the citizens uv the Southern .States wich lost their lives and legs and sich, in the late un pleasantnisses wich hez bin referred to, ought to be placed on the pension rolls the same ez the Northern citizens who suffered likewise, and that the debt incurred by the South in upholdin things ez viewed from its stand-pint is entitled to be paid the same ez the debt incurred by the North in upholdin things ez viewed from its stand-pint. That we are willin for the sake uv harmony to admit that Sherman and Grant were, all things considered, worthy uv being ranked with Lee and Stonewall Jaxon. That the safety uv the Goverment demands that sich ez took part in the late unpleasantniss from the Southern States be twounst admitted to Congress and to the other positions wich they yoost to ornament, and that the more unpleasant they wuz doorin the trouble the more they ought to be admitted. That there sbel be gushin confidences, we freely forgive the honored Secretary uv Slate for the too free use nv his little bell doorin the un pleasantniss, believin the that he viewed things from his own stand-pint instid uv somebody else's, wich alluz causes trouble.
