Have you a cough? Have you a nore throat?
Have you any ol the premonitory symptoms ol
that most fatal disease, Consumption? Those
who should be warned by these symptoms gen
erally think light of them until it is too late.
From this faet, perhaps, more than any other,
arises the sad prevelence and fatality of a dis
ease which sweeps to the grave at least one-sixth
of death's victims. Consumption has destroyed
more ol the human tamily than any other diS'
ease, aim the nest physicians tor many years
have despaired of a cure, or a remadv that would
heal the lungs, but for more than two hundred

It is now recommended aud prescribed in the
practice of a large number of the most intelli

Ma. Wisuart: 1 wish to add my testimony
to the hundreds you receive to the healing prop

teen year a sufferer, ten years of that time I
have slept only in my chair, not beinp; able to
lie down for fear of suffocation. I have employ
ed seven of the best physicians in Philadelphia,
who all pronounced my case incurable. 1 was
taken to the College, where the Faculty having
done what they could, declared my disease an
incurable case ot Asthma and Chronic Dyspep
sia, in its last stage, and that my lungs were

WISHART'S PINE TREE TAR CORDIAL.
GREAT REMEDY FOR CONSUMPTION!
.;. Rkabing, Pa., April 19, 1864.
' Da. Wishart Bear Sir: One year ago the
Examining Surgeon of this, district tola me I
had Consumption of the Lungs, and that I could
not becured; and judging from all my symptoms
at that time, l myse.lt supposed this to be true.
I was for more than one year troubled with a
hacking cough, which gradually grew so bad
that I could not have a severe fit of coughing
without spitting up blood in large quantities.
For mouths I could not work at anything,
nml was obliged to keep my beiKniostoi the
time. While iu this condition 1 was in jr.
Jiowbotham s store, in this city, and lie seeing
how low I was, recommended me to. try your
Pine Tree Tar Cordial. He said lie had sold
great deal of it, aud that, as it had cured so mauy
others, he believed it would do some good. .
houirht a bottle and commenced using it. iu
verv short time I saw that I was getting better
very fast, and after taking several bottles I was
entirely restored to health, so that I could work
everv day at my business, which is very heavy
work, in an iron foundry. When I commenced
to use your Pine Tree lar Cordial, my weight
was only one hundred aud thirty-five pounds:
since the use of it I have weighed on au average
one huudred and fifty-five. 1 shall be glad to
have you publish this, as 1 believe i should not
have been living at this time if I had not used
your great medicine, and I wish all who suffer
to receive iw uciibul.

A LITTLE WHILE.
A little while to walk this wearv road:
A little way to bear this weary load,
Then all our earthly pilgrimage shall cease,
And all shall wear the crown in perfect peace.
A little while to love with earthly love,
And then we share the "fulness" from above;
A little time of darkness and of doubt.
Then the bright home whose light shall ne'er
A little toil and sadness here below.
A little time to watch and plant and sow ;
Then Jesus calls his laborers away
Where everlasting joy and gladness stay.
A little time of wind and storm aud rain.
And the shinine heaven we shall gain;
A little time to toss on life's rough sea,
Then in that peaceful home our rest shall be.
A little while ! Oh Saviour ! make us strong,
To bear that little, though it oft seems long;
Guide thou our way with thine own loving hand,
Till we shall enter in the Promised Land .'

A NEW WAR IN INDIA.
Bhootan. People, and its Offences.
The English have another Indian War on their
hands, it is not a mutiny that is to lie sup.
preased this time, but an independent .State,
never under British rule, that is to be conquer
ed and "annexed. lihootan, a poor aud iso
lated state, hitherto exempt from the ravages of
foreign wars, has not only turned the cold shoul
der to an envoy from England who penetrated
its dreary wastes, but actually threatened him,
so that he conceived that his life was in danger,
and hastily retired. For this and other offences
England declares war against Bhootau, and the
Bhooteas are to oe iooteu aowu tue nui oi au-
The history ot this country ot ihootan is in
teresting. . the best authorities say it is about
two hundred and fifty miles in length by ninety
five in breadth, with an area of sixty-four thou
sand sa uare miles, and a population of seven
hundred and fifty thousand souls having Ben
gal Proper on the south, Assam to the southeast,
and Thibet to the north. Like the highlands
of Scotland, it is a place of mountain fastnesses
aud wild glens. It people, whom few white
men have seen, are rude barbarians, whose arms
are the bow and arrow and the spear, and who
are of Tartar blood, with broad triangular la.
ces, small oblique eyes and yellow skins. Their
religion is fiuddhist, ot a mortified type, and
the country swarms wiui menuicant priests.
The hills produce good iron; building-stone
abundant; dense virgin forests offer inexhausti
ble supplies of lumber; and a narrow belt
valley laud yields tropical fruits. The town:
are lew, but are commanded oy castellated
strongholds which are said to be formidable,
The rulers are a Deb-Rajah who is the actual
sjivereifii as well as the principal merchant
and a Dharma-Rajah, or nominal king, who has
no civil power, but is invested with a sui-prov
in or number ot divine attributes.
Such is the country and such the people that
the English government has now resolved to add
to its possessions in India. 1 he singular ex
emption from the pains and penalties of war,
dete&t and vassalage, wnicn uie cnooieas uave
hitherto enjoyed,. is explained by the remote
ness of their territory irom tue centres oi rrit
Lsh influence; and the sudden desire of possess
ion is probably attributable to the liritish disin
clination to endure a defiance provided al-
wavsthat the ofteuder is weak
. . . i . fn.
The defiance came aoout in mis way: tne
Rhooteas. being savages, knew no better than
to descend from their mountains, like the Scot
tish cateran of the last century, lor predatory
incursions into the territory ot their neighbors,
and they gathered spoil aud took prisoners.

Gen. Sherman's Talk to the People of Georgia.

Headq'ks Mil. Div. of the Mihs'pi, )
Is the Field, Savasxah, Ga., .
January 8, iy&. , )
X. IP. Em., County, Qa:
Dear Sia: Y'ours of the 3d insU ia received,
and in answer to your enquiries I beg to state: '
I am merely a military commander and can
only act in that capacity; nor can I give any as-
surance or pledges affecting civil matters in the
future. They will be adjusted by Congress
when Georgia is again represented there as of
old. . ..
Georgia is not out of the L nion, and therefore
the talk of "reconstruction!' appears to me in
appropriate. Some of her people have bees
and still remain in a state of revolt; aud as long
as they remain armed and organized, the Uni
ted States must pursue them with armies, aud
deal with them according to military law. But
as soon as they break up their armed organiza
tions and return to their homes, I take it they
will be dealt with by the civil courts. Some of
the rebels in Georgia, in my judgement, deserve
death, because they have committed murder
and other crimes, which are punished with
death by all civilized Governments oa earth.
But tlie great mass probably will never be no
ticed. 1 think this was the course indicated by
General Washington with reference to the Whis
ky Insurrection, and a like principle seemed to
be recoguized at the time of the Burr conspire
As to the Union of the rttates under our gov
ernment, we have the high authority of Gener
al Washington, who bade us be jealous and care
ful ot it, aud the still more emphatic word of
Gen. Jackson, I be rederal L niou, it must and
shall be preserved." Certainly Georgians can
not question the authority ot sncu men, and
should not suspect our motives, who are simply
luiinuing ineir commauus. v uerever neces
sary, force has been used to carry out this eud;
and you may rest assured, that the Union will
be preserved, cost what it may. And if you
are sensible men you will conform to this order
of things or else emigrate to some other, coun
try. " There is no other alternative open to the
people of Georgia.
31 y opinion is that no negotiations are neces.
ary, nor commissioners, nor conventions, nor
anything of the kind. Wheuever the people of
Georgia quit rebelling against their government,
and elect members of Congress and Senators,
and these go and take their seats, then the State
of Georgia will have resumed her functious in

"Midwinter." says tlie London badu Jietcs
of January 3, "brings no pause in the shock and
hurry ot war in the American campaign; aud
the same paper adds:
if the .Aorta still remains able to Keep up its
armies to at least their present standard, while
the South cannot reuew its regular forces, nor
rouse the patriotism of its members to further
sacrifices, it is evident that the eud is at length
coming within sight. It must not, indeed, be
looked tor suddeuly. A great aua tried army
like Lee's cannot lie suddenly disposed of by
any opponent less than a Napoleon. Even Hood
may rally a portion oi his lorce, and make a stout
fight still in the strong positions ou the Teuu-
essee. cut, on tne ouier nana, it is impossiuie
not to see in the accounts of the lighting that
now reach us, that a knowledge of their fate
has greatly altered the morale of the contending
forces. There is at ouce a dash and a stubborn
energy in the attacks of the federals which were
not traceable iu their first encounters, while the
southerners, whose wilder manner of life, whose
reckless contempt of death, and whose skul as
shots gave them in the oneuing of the wta dis-
tiuct superiority, now iigin as orave men uo
who are ashamed to yield, but who yet know
that they tight in vain. ' And those who are still
with Hood or Lee are, it must be remembered,
the heartiest who are left. They are those who
doubted not of success, and who shrank not from
the dangers and sufferings necessary to ensure
it. When these begin to doubt the eud must
be approaching. ; .
"But the facts we have beeu reviving not on
ly show us the eud of the war, but they open to
us a happier prospect ot wnicn win oe alter tne
war. The theory advanced by some of our con
temporaries, that the North could never hold the
South, even after the Southern armies are bea
ten from he field, is plainly untenable. The
fiery spirits will be gone, and those who were too
indifferent to fight will certainly not have ener
gy to resist when the fight is over. It ia to be
kept in view that there is after all, no difference
of race, or speech, or law to maintain a feeling
hostility. There is nothing to prevent northern
settlers from amalgamating with southern resi
dents. The negro question behig settled, there
will be nothing to maintain a distinction be
tween the two sections. Engaged iu the same
pursuits, resorting to the same courts, electing
members to the same legislature, there will be
nothing in this case resembling those iu which

an alien power. Southerners will recover their

1 feel a heartfelt gratitude thnt I have lived
to see it done, and that I have been permitted
to perform my little part in tbis great drama.
The blow has been struck, - and- slavery lies
Jirostrate. An insolent, insincere, ignorant, un

aristocracy has been tumbled te the ground.
l ney wno never learned that ,
"Worth make, the man, and want of it the fellow,"
who lived on the real or imaginary honors of
buried ancestry, have at least learned that aa
ignorant, corrupt aristocracy must go down.
Y'our sessions have been, on the whole, harmo
nious, notwithstanding some little bickering,
which I think will au pas away with your ad
journment. While you think you have eman
cipated black men, 1 tell you that you have
emancipated more white than black men from
the insolent domination of the slaveholder.
Yes, the time was not kmg ago when you dared
uot speak your sentiments. Even in East Teu
uewtee, where there were only few slaves, and
we always spoke more freely, do you not re-
mem bef tne power which the slaveholder exer
cised? how many of our people were compelled
to live on barren ridges and cultivate the stony
spots, while a few slaveholders owned thousands
of brond acres in the fertile valleys, which they

Because, many years ago, I dared to speak
of these things, I was denounced as an agrarian
and demagogue, who appealed to thepreiudiees
of the people. Thank God, I have lived to see
the day when the people of my State have de
clared themselves free. I must now urge you
to redouble yonr efforts to carry out your work
when you go hence. ' it you consummate it
with the same resolutiou, the foul blot of hu
man slavery wilt be removed from the escutch
eon of tlie State. - -
I shall say nothing of the future condition cf
the negro, "nor of the elective franchise. First,
reorganize; time and experience will regulate
the rest. Let us first get rid of slavery; let there
be no bickering or conflict till we get that out
of the way. This being done, we will take cp
other questions and dispose of them aa they
arise. ' Who could have anticipated three years
ago that we would have progressed thus far?
Let us like wise- men, hold ourselves in readi
ness to manage the new questions which may
arise in the future. There is no need of giving
onrselves trouble prematurely. '
THE NEW STATE.
Gentlemen .of the convention, or primary'
meeting, or assembly of the peeple, whichever
you may choose to. call it you have already
lived to aee a great work done. The news has
gone forth over the land on the wings of light
ning. As I stated the other day that I had got
a despatch from Governor Fletcher, announc
ing that Missouri was free, so I sent back yester
day a message to him that in my own State ov
er five hundred delegates had nnanimoualy
abolished slavery. 1 also sent a message to
Abraham that the death knell of slavery had
been sounded in Tennessee. If we elect a leg
ialature, re-district the State, and elect Senators
and Congressmen, they will certainly be re
ceived at Washington, and the whole trouble of
reconstruction will be at an end. Our State
will be as much a State as ever, having only lost
its distracting element of slavery, and therefore
