and the large number of testimonials which are

from poor liquors, which debilitates the system
and tends to destroy health instead of restoring it.
Are not the many testimonials jnven tor the dif

persons siiftering from disease that they can be
cured T Read the different testimonials given,
and no oue can doubt. In many of theee cases the
persons nay that their pain and sutTeriugcauuot.be
expressed, as in canes of Scrofula, where, appa

such great cures ? It works in the blod, in the
circulating fluid. It cau be truly called Great
Blood i uhiher. The great source of disease
originates iu the blood ; and no medicine thut does
not act directly upon it, to purify aud icnovate,
has any juM claim Uon public attention. When
the blood becomes lifeless and stagnant, either
from change of weather or climate, want of exer
cise, irregular diet, or from any other cause, the
Veoetine will renew the bhHxl, carry off the
putrid humors, cleanse the stomach, regulate the
bowels and impart a tone of vigor to the whole
body. The comictlon in, in the public mind as
well us iu the medical profession, that the reme
dies .supplied by the Vegetable Kingdom are more
sate, more successful, in the enre ol disease, than

is perfectly safe to give an infant. Do you ucvd

Letter from Miss Jennie
SABATHU, March 2, 1876.
Yon see I am again in my quiet
little mount tin home, wnere I will
have more time to devote to my dear
borne friends. The Mission 1

Lahore, with the privilege of this
mountain Station in the hot weather
The visit of tho Prince of Wales
to Lahore was attended with a great
deal of excitement and display.
was there almost a week, and we bad
two illuminations, displays of fi
works and the usual Ball at the
Government Houss. This I did not
see. All the schools were drawn np
in line each side of the road, and our
1500 bovs made novmall shoW. The
two flags, the stars and stripes and
the Union Jack, were placed at the
ViB.id f the column. The Prince
passed in an open carriage, with
gold lace umbrella held over him by
the Lieut. Governor, Sir Henry
Davis. The Prince was dressed l
his military suit, and wora a simpl
helmet on his head. But no doubt
you have seen all this in the papers
over and over again
The Prince's visit to Amritsar was
of more interest to me, as he there
met the native Christians, and re
ceived from them an address, and
copies of the Bible, in four of the dia
lects of the Punjab. I enclose you a
copy of the address, which was print
ed in English on white satin, and in
Persian on parchment, elaborately
ornamented in real oriental style.
These were folded in a rich, heavy
piece of brocade silk, of very gay
colors, and placed in a chaste silver
The grounds around the Church
Mission House were filled with na
tive Christians, and the different
Missions schools of the place. As
the Prince and his suite drove in
they were heartily cheered, and as
alighted from the carriage "God
Save the King was sung in Hin
dustani. I hope His Royal High
ness recognized his national air, but
have my doubts. Cashmere shawls
abundance waved as flags along
the road on which the royal process
ion passed.
Canon Duckworth, the chaplain
the Prince, seemed to bo an earn
est Christian man, and he returned
the Mission Housa and. in & very
friendly way met the nativa Christ
ians, took them by tho Land, nnd
then mide a very good address to
them. He said he had seen many
wonderful, beautiful and interesting
sights in India, but none of them
eave him the pleasure which meet
ing and taking these Cbristiin breth
ren by the hand gave him.
I wish all the Indian chaplains
were of the same spirit I cannot
but feel more and mora that one of
Satan's strongest holds is among
Government chaplains. They are
"blind leaders of the blind." We
have a new chaplain here, but we
have little to hope from his influence
for good. We have also a new regi
ment the 73d. The officers seem to be
gentlomen, and some of them Christ
ians. A large number of the men
are earnest Christians, so with God's
blessing we hope to accomplish much
good in our efforts among them.
Our native work has very little to en
courage ns. We do naed counge,
faith and patience. All we can do is
sow beside all waters, but here it
seems only barren rocks.
Yesterday, when I went to school,
found a fine locking young native
Cashmere standing by fie veran
dah, waiting for me. He said his
sister was very ill, and wished ma
so and see her. I at once went
with him far down the mountain
side, to a wretched hove!. There
erreat number of their friends had
assembled, and one was holding the
poor suffering woman. Oh, how
helpless I felt! I tried to read some
comforting words of JesuF, but a
woman in a shriii voice called out,
ho was Jests' mother? who was
Jesus' father?" nnd said "we do not
believe iD him." I sent for our native
Christian teacher, hoping he might
sav something to do them good and
direct the suffering one to Christ I
left then, telling them I would send
for the regimental doctor, who is a
Christian, but before I had the note
written, the poor woman was dead.
returned to the house, but could
say little to comfort them. The
house was crowded with friends, and
some of them were busy preparing
the body for the grave. She left
infant only six aays oia. vn our
way back to tho school house, we
stopped to talk with various groups
women, but they all say "our
sons can be taught, but our dacgh
ters mast not go to schoo1, as it is not
our custom." "Can these dry bones
live?" is a question that often pre
sents itself.
We, your Royal Highness hum
blu servants, approach your august
presen' e. We do not represent any
great State or city, but we are a little
flock, gathered by the grace of God,
in the course of about thirty years,
"out of every kindred and tongue,
and people and nation," of this Prov
ince, a flock which, by the power of
Go, is increasing every day.
We rejoice exceedingly that your
Royal Highness Las honored this
country with your presence, for, as
subjects of Her Most Gracious Majes
ty the Queen, in addition to that
prosperity which all the people of
this country derive from Her Majes
ty's government, we have received
even greater blessings under British
rules, namely, those spiritual bless
ing, which are imperishable, and far
better than this world's treasures.
God has now given us a most wel
come opportunity of offering to the
Heir Apparent to the Throne of this
country a tribute of our devotion
and re8peAt, and of assuring your
Royal Highness how deeply-we feel
indebted to these Christian people,
of whose labors and self-denials we
are the fruit We have been called
to God by foreign Missionaries, who,
in giving us spiritual instruction
and support, have displayed an ener
gy and endurance which the Christ
ians of India in generations to come
will not forget For, although
this Government does not in any
way interfere with religious belief,
still Christian people have fonnd un
der British rule an opportunity of
proclaiming in this country the
Word of God, which has been the
means of great blessing to other
lands, and by which the darkness of
this land and is being gradually re
moved, and light and purity are be
ing din used.
With great pleasure and thankful
ness, we beg that your Royal High
ness will be graciously pleased to ac
cept copies of the Sacred Scripturas
in Urdu, Persian, Punjab and Af
ghani, which have been translated by
foreign Missionaries for our benefit,
and we pray that the rule of Her
Most Gracious Majesty, the Queen,
whose piety and holy life are an ex
ample to her subjects, may be estab
lished and prolonged, and also that
the divine protection may ever be
vouchsafed to your Royal Highness,
that you may be enriched with heav
enly blessings, and in all things glori
fy God, through our Lord Jesus

Southwest Texas.
Southwest Texas i3 mt much of
an agricultural country. Very little
rain falls during May, June, July and
August not enough usually to make
good crops of corn. Wheat does
moderately well, and oats in good
seasons yield enormously.
This has been a pretty fair seascn
to this date, but rain is beginning
to be needed. Wheit and oats har
vest will begin in ten days or two
This is not a fruit country, that is,
not much of a fruit country. Have
not seen an applo or cherry tree for
months. Peaches do very well, but
have not seen many trees. Figs are
about as common as any other fruit.
They are now nearly full grown, and
would be ripe, but the early ones
were nipped by the heavy frosts
about the last of March. No straw
berries here, no currants, aDd I have
seen no blackberries, althoug they
may grow.
Sweet potatoes do well. Cotton
makes from half a bale to a bale per
acre, lue business ol this section
is stock raising, cattle, sheep ard
horses. The sheep interest just now
is taking the lead. There are also
some goat ranches. Horses, wild
upon the prairie, are worth from ten
to fifteen dollars, or about the same
as cattle. Sheep are worth, for com
mon native stock, about two dollars.
good many Ine sleep are being
brought into the country. In bring
ing stock of any kind here from oth
er countries, great care has to be ta
ken of it for a year or so to keep it.
No stock, except wor k horses and
milk cows, is fed grain in winter,
that is, native stout. No grasses that
grow in Ohio grow here. The sum
mers are too hot and dry for timo
thy, blue grass, or clover. Mesquit,
of several varieties, grow3 here the
year round, and sage grass.
Here near San Antonio, gardens
are irregated from the San Antonio
river, and produce abundantly. As
remaiked in a previous letter, there
are no farms worthy of the name of
farms, near t'lis city. For miles
around the country is ccvcrcd with
largo growth of Mesiuit, and after
leaving the city limits one may ride
ia some directions for miles without
seeing any improvements.
Yesterday we rode down the west
bank of the river five miles, to the
San Jose Mission, then east across
the river to another old Mission, and
in perhaps eight miles of the ride we
did not pass but one improved place!
It is said that one hundred years
ago thousands of acres now unoccu
pied were in a high state of cnltiva
tion. This was when Texas was a
part of the Spanish Mexican posses
sions, when Uncle Sam's domain was
smaller and more sparsely populated
than now.
About one quarter of the popula
tion of this country is Mexican.
They live in very poor excuses for
houses, not equal to the negro shan
ties, as a general thing, and some
times, yes, frequently, they live in
huts that with you in Ohio, would
hardly be thought good winter quar
ters for hogs. Many of these Jack
als (pronounced Hackels) are built
by driving cedar pickets in the
ground and putting on a roof of
straw, cane, or old blankets. Many
of them are built of adobe, and oc
casionally in good style, but thia is
the exception and not the rule, al
though the owners sometimes have
money, and might build much better..
One afternoon, in company with a
collector for a sewing machine agen
cy, we called at two or three of these
places. One of them was occupied
by Mary de Jesus Cis, and was some
what above tbe average in that part
of the city. Here is the style of it:
About 12 by 16 feet in size, with oDe
very narrow shed, or partly closed
back rocm, built of post-oak pickets,
daubed within and without with one
opening, possibly two, without glass,
but closed by solid shutters; two
doors, no fire place, and no floor but
Mother Earth, and that not as
smooth as a threshing floor by a
good deal.
The furniture consisted of two
trunks, one bed, ODe or two excuses
for chairs, a sewing machine, looking
glas3, two or three crosses, snd not
much else.
We only saw two or three persons
about the house at the time of our
visit but the balance of the family
were lying around somewhere. We
wondered where -they stowed them
all away at night It might be worth
while to mention that the f gent got
five dollars in specie on bis sewing
machine, poor though the place
Children and dog3 are usually
numbered by the dozen or half doz
en. In the Jackal above partly do
scribed, we only saw three dogs.
The children were probably under a
neighboring Mesquit bush.
Me sic en women do not wear ton
nets. They always have a shawl or
scarf thrown ova.' their head and
shoulders. The men generally wear
wide-rimmed hats, "roundabouts,"
with red sash tied about the waist,
a3 an Irishman wears his belt's We
road of noble looking Spaniardsv'tull
and sharp-featured, but these are not
characteristics of a Mexican here
It is said that for many years,
when a Mexican got into debt he
never thought of getting out by any
other way than by paying 100 cts. on
the dollar, or honorably discharging
the obligation. Liko the Indians,
they are learning tricks from the
white man, and ars not as reliable as
of old, although my friend, the col
lector, informed me that he consid
ered them safe usually for tha pay
ments upon a sawing machine.
Northern people are here by bun
dreds Many corns ta look after the
stock business. Some stay and go
into business; piany return with no
flittering opinion of the country.
It is said that there were 1000 per
sons here the past winter for their
health, lung and throat diseases gen
erally, but many of them, now that
the weather is getting hot, aro go
ing north. For consumption, asth
ma and like afflictions, this climate
is, if sought in time, very superior,
and many derive great advantage
from a visit here.

William Allen says no Democrat

Experience of an Andersonville
Prisoner in Dixie.
Our boys took no part in the fight, but of course
our sympathy was with No. I am not able to
say what the result might have been, ft other cir
cumstance, had not transpired, to put a stop to
the contest
In the midst of one of No. J's flank movements
another batch of Uuion prisoners was announced.
There proved to be seven of their, one Captain of
a New Jersey Cavslry Regiment, two Lieutenants
of the same regiment, two privates, one wagon
muter and one civilian. The Captain was a very
finely-dressed officer. He wore a gold-laced cap,
one dress coat, and gold-lace up and down the
seams of his pauis. He sported a line chronome
ter gold watch and chain, that cost 390. Be was
a Dane by birth and spoke broken English.
The other two officers were not so extravagantly
dressed, but wore very good uniform, and carried
silvc- watches. The wagon-master was a Mia-
Votaan, byhe name of Ileury Ingram. Ue also
carried a fine gold chronometer repeater, varaed at
SOTO, and had tlOOO in greenbacks in his pocket,
besides a considerable amount of jewelry.
One of the privates was a deserter from the
Union army, and the other was a boy about sixteen
years old, who belonged to the State of New York.
The civilian belonged to Louisiana. He was
finely dressed, looked to be about 30 years old,
aud had on his person $13,000 in greenbacks, that
he had received from some speculator for his cot
ton crop. Hi was a wealthy planter and said to be
a Union man. His name was Drake. They were
all captured near Baton Rouge, La.
As soon as tbey were admitted to our room It
occurred to us to try and save some of the money
and watches belonging to our new friends. The
reader ill please take notice that here was anoth
er instance of men coming all tbe way from Baton
Rouge to Canton, Mississippi, 200 miles under
guard, carrying $IB,ikw on their persons and good
clothes on their backs, and none of their property
disturbed nntil they fell into the hand, of the
aristocratic yourjg soldiers (!) of the South.
The guards were slow about getting at their
day's work, and we had time to tell the new-comers
what they might expect. Ingram was sitting close
to tbe stove, and after he was informed of the
character of the guards he took out his thousand
dollars and threw it ia the stove, and the fire re
duced it to ashes.
Mr. Drake asked me if I knew of any way to
conceal his money, and after a little reflection an
idea occurred to me and I proposed it to him. I
had become acquainted with Capt. Johnson during
the few days we had been together, and I thought
him a very clever gentleman. I knew the guards
wouldn't dare to search him, so I suggested to Mr.
Drake to give his money over to Capt. Johnson for
safe keeping. The money was transferred to tbe
Captain's care not a minute too soon, for the door
was threwn open and In walked a half dozen of the
light-angered gentry. Tucker in their midst, and
went to riding the pockets of the officers and men
The Captain stoutly objected, and called for the
protection of the Confederate officers, bnt no at
tention was paid to the call. His fine watch and
chain changed hands, and all the rest of his valua
bles shared the same fate.
The rest of tbe prisoners received the same at
tent ion as the Captain, and at the close of the per
formance, tbe Confeds. retired to divide their
booty. The Captain procured a slip of paper, and
wrote to the Provost Marshal, complaining of the
treatment he had received. All the satisfaction be
received in reply was this answer: "That's the
way my men make their living."
After tbe guards had examined their witches,
jewelry, 4c, they returned, and we were all required
to stand In lino and be searched. Tucker took a
leading part, and proved that be was an expert.
The second investigation only turned up a few
small articles, and we were dismissed once more.
The next move of the guards was to take pos
session of the prisoners' clothing. They took each
out of the room separately and exchanged with
him. They called it "swapping" the reader can
put hia own construction on It.
Mr. Drake received in place of his fine suit, an
old U. S. overcoat, very badly worn old shoes and
a very shabby-looking bat. ilia breaches were a
good deal the worse for wear, and on the whole he
was metamorphosed entirely. To add insult to
injury, he was then hand-cuffed, his ankles chained
together, and treated as a spy. Captain Johnson,
who bad the unfortunate man's money, took sick
the next morning and sent for the surgeon. The
surgeon pronounced him dangerously ill, and or
dered him removed to tbe Hospital for treatment.
He was carried out by f ur men and with him
went Mr. Drake's $i3,oi of cotton money. It was
evident then that Capt. Johnson hai feigned sick
ness for the purpose of getting away with the
coney, and I suppose the surgeon aud officers
were iu the plot. Mr. Drake was treated as a spy
and sentenced to be shot- I never learned wheth
er his sentence was executed or not, but the opin
ion of my comrades was that be was accused of
being a spy as a cloak, hi order that the provost
guards could rob bim with impunity.
The Union officers who came with Mr. Drake
from Baton Rouge said that the only charge that
could be sustained against him was that he entered
tire Union lines with his cotton, sold it for green
backs, and was captured on his way home. He
didnt seem to hanker after greenbacks any more
than our Canton guards did. About that time one
dollar of the "hireling" money, as the rebels called
It, was worth Jive "gray back" dollars I
The reader n ay be curious to know how oar
Jersey Ciptaio and his Lieutenants stood the in
dignities and Insults of their captors. The two
Lieutenants were true Americans, who could
adapt themselves to any circumstances, and when
they were relieved of their uniforms and furnished
with a suit of old gray clotbes and a little narrow
brim, dirty white hat each, they pretended to enjoy
the joke i much as anybody. Not so with the foreign
Ctptain. He was accustomed to have men respect
aad obey bim, and as for jokes, he couldnt see
any points to them at all. Tucker had taken all
his clothes, and also his watch and chain, and
wh.'n he was brought back be was completely
crest-fallen and dejected. Being bare-headed,
Tucker looked around for a cap or hut that would
do for him. and finally discovered a Zouave cap,
which struck him as being tbe very thing to set
the Captain off. The top of the cap was red, and
!f Tucker had hunted all over Dixie he couldnt
have found anything that would have insulted the
Captain like presenting him with that cap. He
dashed it on the floor and exclaimed, "I vill vair no
BreetUh gap! Yon cant shteek him on me."
This was just the kind of fnn Tucker enjoyed, so
he picked, up the cap and again placed it upon tbe
Captni:'s head. Again he dashed it down and
moved to auother part of tho room, but his tor
mvntor followed him up and persisted in forcing
him to wear the rap. The Captain got mulish, and
wouldn't talk, bnt as fast as Tucker put the cap on
his head he would dau It off. Finally, Tucker
got tired and left the cap lying on the CaptainV
knee, and some of the boys, out of pity, took it
and gave him an old black hat, which he wore very
complacently. If the Captain had used a little
discretion, aud accepted the cap at first, he would
have been saved the insult and humiliation be was
subjected to.
One more of Tucker's outrageous acts, and I
will be done with him, as far as he Is concerned In
this narrative. We had two negroes with us as
prisoners, one a very old snd pious man, a slave.
nd a leader at their plantation meetings. The
other was a young fellow. One day Tucker took
np the poker and ordered the old negro to pray for
Jeff. Davis. The old fellow obeyed by kueeling
down aud going to work in g-iod earnest, whil
'i'icker made the young fellow stand before him
and "pat jiha." Whenever the old man dfunt
pray just to suit Tucker, he would strike bim over
t'ae head with the poker. Iu this way Tucker ex
tracted a very different supplication no doubt from
what would have been offered np if the poor old
slave had been allowed freedom of thought.
The time at last arrived for Tucker's trial for
murder. An officer conducted him to headquar
ters, where in the course of an hour everything
was explained satisfactorily, (!) and Tucker was
released and ordered back to tbe front, ready fox
duty ! He came up to onr room with a pair of re
volvers hanging to his belt, gave O ok and Crigby

[For the News. Battle of Shiloh--Statement
of a Soldier Who
Was There.
In the News of the 27th of last
January I saw a letter calculated to
lead people to beb'eve that General
Sherman was surprised at the battle
of Shiloh. Now, in behalf of Gen.
Sherman, I will just say that I can
not see how he could possibly have
been surprised under the circum
stances, from the fact that on the
! Thursday before the battle of Shiloh,
which took place cn Sunday, April
6th, General Buckland was sent out
with a scouting party, with his brig
ade the Seventieth and Forty
eighth Ohio, and others. Company
A of the Seventieth Ohio was in
front, and we (Company A) drove in
the" rebel pickets, and heard the long
roll beat in ' the rebel camps, when
we were ordered to fall back and
prepare for battle. As for Colonel
Parker, only seeing indications of
the rebels perhaps did not alarm him
much, but we saw the Johnnies and
drove them in, and then fell back
some distance until evening, when
we were ordered by General Buck
land to fall bock to the brigade,
which we did, followed by the rebels.
On the following morning (Friday)
they made an attack on onr pickets,
which were reinforced by our own
men, and considerable skirmishing
took place, and several wounded men
were brought into onr camp. Yet
still it is said we were surprised,
although each day we were fighting
the rebels, nntil Sunday morning.
To say that General Sherman was
surprised is a disgrace lo the noble
heroes who laid thick on the bloody
field of Shiloh, and on insult to those
who survived. It is true that the
rebels came out in force early on
Sunday morning, and I know onr
long roll beat before we all .got
breakfast; but what of that? Would
any man of good sound sense dare
to say that, after three or four days
of picket fighting, General Sherman
was surprised? That can not be, as
he must have known that the enemy
was there, and in full force.
Your correspondent, "M.," states
that he was on the camp-ground of
the Forty-eighth Ohio ten days after
the battle, and saw where the rebels
camped, not more than two or three
miles from our camp, and that the
enemy was undiscovered. That is a
great mistake, and very unreasonable
to suppose.
In conclusion I must repeat that,
after the rebels had been driven into
their camp by our scouts, who heard
their long roll beaten, and after
fighting with them three days before
the great battle on Sunday, I truly
think that "M." must be wrong in
saying that General Sherman was
swprised at Shiloh.
I subscribe myself,

Secession Not Dead--Danger
Disputes about the nature and
character of our Government seem
destined to be endless. The true
doctrine seems to be made clear by
the plain words of the Constitution
itself. It is confirmed by public
writers, such as Story, Mansfield
and Paschall. A great light is held
over it in the great speech of Daniel
Webrter, delivered in 1830. And an
excellent summnry of it is found in
the pithy words cf a patriotic senti
ment by Andrew Jackson: ,lThe
American Union, !t must be pre
served." That Union was reached through
severe discipline, and Washington
whose wisdom, extended as his fame,
wiil be cherished throughout ages
saw that it would be exposed to
danger from the bad passions of
men. in me nanu oi uuu no
itood." and in the crowning act of
his public life, with the most solemn
utterances, he warned his country
men against this danger. How
eat how imminent it became, is
now among the sad experiences of
tho American people.
The same doctrines that led to the
Rebellion continue to be taught in
tho Southern States. Pardoned
rebels are the teachers Wade Hamp
ton, Ben Hill, Robert Toombs, James
ordort, Beverly Tucker, Alexander
H. Stephens, and others of a like
character. Such men can nave no
doubt that Southern views and feel
ings will dominate, as surely as the
night follows day, if the Democratic
party can become successful.
The mere prospect of such an
event warms them into life, and
makes them noisy, menacing and
venomous. We are warned. The
evil genius of onr country rears his
head, shakes his rattles, and is pre
to fasten his deadly, fangi
