My cough still in creased so much that my stomach and lungs fell as if they were all raw, there was such a soreness. I raised a very large amount, and it appeared to me that I was as bad off as manv-Deonle I have seen in the hst stages of consumption, and tht 1 j could not live hut a snort time. 1 mere fore determined to be my own physician. !c 1 sent to Castkil I for half a dozen bottles of, your Expectorant, and commenced taking it, and in less th3n twenty-four hours there was quite a change in my feelings, and before I had taken two -bottles of it, I was restored to my usual health. .

It seems almost- literally a band of heroes. , They have., earned lau rels enough to grace the largest .army which Europe has ever brought together. Why wrangle about Jhe spoils of victory? There ishonor enough to satisfy the ; most ambitious among, them. ; Whether one has gajned a little more, than another, is of small consequence,, since there is enough for all. But is it not most unfor tunate, that after they have all covered themselves with glory, they should wind tip their brilliant campaign with little feuds, and perhaps unworthy' jealousies, thatdetraet from the credit of the whole? These feuds must be arrested, or else the operations of the war must be impeded, and the public service must suffer. We leave it to the wisdom and the patriotism of the administration to pursue that course which is best calculated to subserve the in terests of the country and the vigorous prosecution of the war We cannot forbear laying before our readers the following eloquent extract from the North American" on this sub ject; and, for the present, we leave the un gracious topic; ' ' "A little army of; American soldicrsj uflioorpd ly as brayc men as ever trod any portion of God's footstool soldiers that knew no impulse but love of eountivy, and no word but. -victory entered the heart of a foreign State, vanquished its ar mies, and placed their banners upon its capital.
