MISCELLANEOUS. Dr. J. Walker's California Tin egar Bitters aro a purely Vegetable preparation, made chiefly tiuui iuu a fivo herbs found on tho lower ranges of the Sierra Nerada mountains of Califor nia, tho medicinal properties of which are extracted therefrom without tho uso of Alcohol. Tho question is almost daily asked. What is tho cause of tho unparalleled success of Vinegar Bit ters?" Our answer is, that they remove tho cause of disease, and tho patient re covers Li3 health. They are tho great blood purifier and a life-giving principle, a perfect Keuovator aud Invigorator of tho system. Never before in tho history of tho. world h.ts a medicine been compounded possessing tho remarkable qualities of Vim-gar Bitters in healing tho sick of crorr disease mau is heir to. They are a geutla" Purgative a3 well as a Tonic, relieving Congestion or Inflammation of the Liver azA Visceral Organs ia Bilious ! Diseascs The properties cf Dr.. Walker's Viskga. Bitters are Aperient, Diaphoretic, Carminative. Nutritious, Laxative, Diuretic, Sedative, Counter-irritant Sudorific, Altera tive, and Anti-Bilious. Grateful Thousands proclaim Vin egar Bitters the most wonderful In vigorant that ever sustained th sinking system. No Person can take these Bitters according to directions, and remain long unwell, provided their bones are not de stroyed by mineral poison or other means, and vital organs wasted beyond repair. Bilious, Remittent and Inter mittent Fevers, which are so preva lent in the valleys of our great rivers throughout the United States, especially those of the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan sas, lied, Colorado, Brazos, Ilio Grande, Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Ro anoke, James, and many others, with their vast tributaries, throughout our entire country during the Summer and Autumn, and remarkably so during sea sons of unusual heat and dryness, aro invariably accompanied by extensive de rangements of the stomach and liver, and other abdominal viscera. In their treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow erful iniluence upon these various or gans, is essentially necessary. Tbero is no cathartic for "the purpose equal to Di:. J. Walker's Vinegar. Bitters, as they will speedily remove the dark colored viscid matter with which the bowels are loaded, at the same time stimulating the secretions of the liver, and generally restoring the healthy functions of tho digestive organs. Fortify the body against disease by purifying all its fluids with Vixegar Bitters. No epidemic can take hold of a system thus fore-armed. Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Head ache, Tain in the Shoulders, Coughs, Tightness of tho Chest. Dizziness, Sour Eructations of the Stomach, Bad Taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpita tation of the Heart, Inflammation of tho Lungs, I'ain i:i the reioji cf the Kid neys, and a hundred other painful symp toms, are tbe offsprings of Dyspepsia. One bottle will prove a better guarantee of its merits than a lengthy advertise ment. Scrofula, or Kind's Evil, White Swellings, Ulcers, Erysipelas, Swelled Xeck, Goitre, Scrofulous Inflammations, Indolent Inflammations, Mercurial A flections, Old Sores, Eruptions of tho Skin, Sore Eyes, etc. In theie, as in till other constitutional Dis eases, Walkkr's Yixkoaii Bitters have shown their great curative powers in the most obstinate and intractable, cases. For Inflammatory and Chronic Rheumatism, Gout, Bilious. Remit tent and Intermittent Fevers, Diseases of the Blood, Live:-, Kidneys mid Bladder, these Bitters have no rrpial. Such Diseases are caused by Vitiated Blood. Mechasnea Diseases. Persons en paged in Paints and .Minerals, such as Plumbers, Type-setters.

Nettie Roth at in her cosy little sitting-room, thinking over the event3 of the day. A very pretty picture she made, as she sat there in the bright firelight. Her soft merino dress contrasted well with her rich, dark beauty. Her cheeks were flushed, and her dark hair, escaping from the comb clttitertd in soft curls around her forehead. Her hands lay idly in her lap, and her eyes were fixed, with a thought ful look, on the fire. " Why can't 1 keep that old gypsy woman out of my mind?" she murmured. " I know her words are false, yet 1 cannot help think ing of them. My uncle will never invest my fortune in any unsafe speculation, and, if he should, that would make no difference in ijuy s affection. He loves rae for myself alone, and not for my money, for has enough for both, bull, 1 i f i . ii nave nail n ininu to try nib iuve m m ... t l. t r someway, mere i naeii. l will tell every one that my money is gone; and then, if Guy is false, he will com? and release me from my engagement. But no; he will come as soon as he hears of it, to comfort mo. Dear Guy ! I wish he w.to home. Well, he will try my little plan. I might go into the country as a school-teacher, and find some good, honest countryman, who would love rae for myself alone. Bat pshaw ! what a romance I am weaving ! How Guy will laugh when 1 tell him, and scold me tor ever doubting his lovei" In his room ;it an hotel sat Mr. Guv Archer. His head was thrown back, his feet elevated to the man tel, and a dreamy look was in his handsome eyes. He had just returned from a hunting expedition, and, as he was sitting on the balcony that afternoon, he could not avoid hearing the conversation of some ladies who sat inside the window. " Wrhat a handsome couple Nettt? Roth and Guy Archer will make! It will be the bst match of the sea son. Both are yeung, rich and talented. I did think she was in love with young Dr. Marl, but he had not money enough to suit her. Nettie will never marry a poor n;an." He had come away then, but now, as he sat there, the words came back to him. "Money is no object to Nettie," thoufrht he: "she would love me just as well were I penniless. By Jove ' 1 am going to test ner love a little. I will announcs to-morrow that I have failed. ' 111 news travels fast,' so, before to-morrow night, she will have heard of it. Then I will call and offer to release her. How surprised she will look I Dear little Nettie ! I know your generous heart too well to doubt you; still I shall feel better satisfi cd if I prove your love." Before the next night, every one was talking of the reported fall from wealth to poverty of Gay and Nettie. Yet it so happened that neither had heard of the misfortune of the other. That night Nettie awaited, with beating heart, the coming of her lover, for to-night she was to prove his love. His greeting was as lov ing as ever, yet she thought she detected a nervousness in his ac tions. He, with his usual impul siveness, came to the point at once. " Nettie." said he, "you are dearer to me than life; but, after this sudden loss of fortune, I must give you back your liberty, if you wish it." Poor girl ! having heard nothing of his pretended loss, she supposed that he alluded to her own. In stantly her thoughts of the week before flashed through her mind. She felt faint and sick, but, by a very great effort, she controlled herself, and answered, " Sir, I give you back your troth; I think we have both made a great mistake." He stayed to hear no more, but rushd from the hou?e like one crazed. " CrueJ, heartless girl ! he cried. " Perhaps 'tis lucky 1 found her out befcre it was too late. But 'where ignorance is bliss 'tis folly to be wise.' I wish that unlucky plan had never come into my head. I will leave this city forever, and never look on her fair, false face again. I will hereafter live as a poor man. No one shall ever again have the chance to love me for this accursed money." As soon as Guy could settle his affairs, he disappeared from the city, telling no one of his intended destination. Having disguised himself by darkening his complexion, coloring his brown hair a dead black, procuring a large black beard and assuming the garb of a common laborer, 1 think not even his most intimate friends would have recog nized in this dark, rough-looking man the elegant Guy Archer, Broadway, lie iouna emr farm of a kind oia lie found employment on the man living seme ! thirty miles from the city years before he had spent tiie city. : wo a very j pleasant summer in tit s smail Vilr I age. and boarded with the same man mat ne nau now eng.igeu to work for. He assumed the name of James Homes, which, together with his changed appearance, com pletely threw the old man off the track, if he had any suspicion.' ' At first he found the work pretty hard, but he soon became a ecus tomed to labor, and his hands, once ai. white., and soft as a woman's gradually became browned ad bur dened by honest toil. i When he had been there about two months, a new teacher was hired, and, as this was the marest house to the school -building, she came to board with Mr. Williams. Her voice was low and sweet, her hair she always kept under a small lace cap ; her hands were small and white ; her eyes dark and soft, with a sad, wistful look in them ; but their beauty was con cealed by the glasses which she always wore, although Guy often noticed that, when she wished to look very closely at anything, th.3 looked over her glasses, which seemed rather strange. She had, also, a very dark complexion ; yet, notwithstanding her odd way of dressing, and her name, Louie Von wart, was strange to him, it seemed to Guy at times as though he had known her somewhere before. TThe Tjair soon became great friends, and it became the usual thing for Guy to accompany Louie to and from church, parties, and the merry makings of the young people. Often, on cold mornings, he would leave his work to take her to school in the great old-fashioned sleigh. They were uncon sciously becoming dearer to each other every day. Gradually the truth dawned upon Guy that he was in love a second time, and he determined to know his fate as'soon as an oppor tunity presented itself. This hap pened sooner than he expected, for, that very night, the old people went to spend the evening with one of the neighbors, leaving the young pOplo alone. .Louie busied nerselt witn some fancy work, and Guy pretended to read, but was really lost in deep thought, when, suddenly throwing down his paper, he came up to her, and, taking: both her hands, he said (t Louie, I love you ; will you be my wife ?" He read nis answer in her sweet, blushing face, long below the low murmured " Yes " came to his ears " But, James, I have a little story to tell you. have loved before ; but oh ! how unworthv was the object on which I bestowed a love almost amounting to worship ! I am not a poor country school teacher, dependent on my daily bread, nor is the name which I now bear my real one. Just one year ago I was a wealthy New York belle, happy, oh ! so happy ! I was betrothed to a man who was hand some, rich, and, 1 then believed, noble and generous. " ' Guy left town on a short hunting expedition, and, during his absence, I, with a party of young friends visited an old gypsy for tune teller. She predicted that I should lose my fortune, and, in consequence, my lover. I made very light of this ; but after I came home the words kept ringing in my ears. Never doubting hira for an instant, just for a jest, I thought I would test his love a little." All this time Guy stood before her white and trembling ; but, with out looking up, she went on. ' Much to the disgust of my good uncle, I circulated the report that my money was all lost in a failure which had occurred the day before. That night my lover came, not, as I expected, to comfort and console me, but," here, her voice trembled, and her face grew whiter, " as soon as the greetings were over, he said ' Nettie, you are dearer to me than life ; yet after this loss of fortune I must give you back your liberty if you wish it. He was false . lhe words kept ringing in my ears my heart almost stopped beating but I managed, somehow, to tell him that he could have his liberty. The next thing I knew I was lying on the sofa, in my own room, with my aunt bending over me, asking what was the matter. 1 told her the whole story, and the next day de parted to visit an aunt living at Li . 1 staid with ner about a month, where, becoming tired of doing nothing, except to brood over my unfortunate attachment, I thought I would come to this place, where had spent so pleasant a summer the year before. So dis guising myself as you now see me, I procured a situation as teachcrf and " Here she glanced up. "James ! what is the matter? You look as though you were going to faint." Tearing off his exclaimed, " Nettie, dear false beard, he j Nettie ! Don't of J you know me?" a scream, she fell fainting ; in his arms. j He laid ner gently on the sofa, i and, cilling tho irl, Mary he bade i her do all Sin could for Nertie. I while - - - - ? it1 hastened for Mrs. Wil- i hams. On the way home he ex piaine.i the little piece of acting iiiuii-iv ui tue satisfaction oi me good old couple. As soon as he arrived at the house, lie hastened 10 his room, and, having thrown off all disguise, he went below to find Nettie, who now looked the sune as when he first knew her. She "was alone in the parlor. Guy explained matters to her eatisfrtctioo, and tU.oy Jctcrminod to be married on the next evening, at the old farmhouse, and return and harmony ani'Wiir us. Look at . . : it great wisdom. The direction to eep the fences in repair, is to ad mission and government of the members ot this churcli. We must see to it that only those who are regenerated are admitted into our fold. The direction to keep the spring open and pure, means that we must not let our faith, our love for God, and our love for eachother, get cold and clogged, and our daily walk and conversa tion corrupted by the weak and beggarly elements of tha world. And we must, in a particular man- nee, set a wrtclitul guard over the devi! the old, dangerous black buil, often attacks us when we are not aware of his presence, and who, with his long horns, plunges at u? openly, and who has made many savage plunges at this church in particlar." j.nese remaiKs opened the eyes of all the people present to the wisdom and enlightened nietv of Mr. Seward's decision. It was unanimously resolved to abide by it, and peace, good will and prosperity was restored to the church, brotherly love took the place of hatred, and piety increased. Nearly forty years have passed away since this remarkable decision was received by that church. Its organization has been continued down to the present time with uninterrupted prosperity. What effect Mr. Seward's letter had on his tenant has never been known. Amusing Sestlement of a Churcli Quarrel. The following is a condensed sKetcn irom Lt. u. rroctor s corns prehensive work, "The Bench and Bar of New York Mr. Seward was a sort of stand ing mediator of church difficulties in his county. Contending parties in those disputes and troubles which destroy harmony and brotherly love in churches, would often mutually seek his mediation, and such was their confidence in him that each party would accept his advice and settle apparently irreconcilable quarrels and difficulties. An amusing incident was once the result of an appeal to him in one oi tnese cnnrca aimculties which had for a long time threatened the destruction of a Presbyterian churcli in a neighboring town. At last it was decided to submit all these difficulties to Mr. Seward, and that his decision should be entirely conclusive, lie consented to become the umpire for the par ties gave them a patient hearing, and promised to send them his decision in writing. In due time he arrived at a decision, reduced it to writing, and enclosed it in : letter to one of the leading mem bers of the church. At this time Mr. reward was the owner of a farm in another part of the county which was occupied by a tenant, to whom he wrote at the time he was about to mail his decision in the case of the church in directing the letter the one intended for the church was direc ted to his tenant, wnua the one intended for the tenant was sen to the church. It was duly re ceived by the the proper officer, and the members of the congregation assembled to hear the decision Mr. Seward which was to heal difficulties and dissensions. Alter calling the congregation to order, tne moderator, in appro priate language, explained the ob ject of the meeting. "I hold in my hand,' said he, "a paper whic i I aa about to open and read this assembly, which is, I have doubt, the o ive branch that i3 to no to restore harmony and prosperity to this church and congregation, comes from one who, though lawyer, loves the Lord and is It peace-maker." Then, breaking r -l i i . open j.ur. oewartt s letter, he read the following : " You will take particular care ot that old, dangerous black bul i r. . . i wno oucn atracKs people when no aware oi nis presence, and soin i times plunges at them openly: ant I . . ...r.ii - .t . . jumuH carei tuy see w tne repair I i inc. leuce, iii.it mey are ouiu I high and strong, and also see that j the water in the spring i always kept pure." There was a mystery about th's advice that greatly puzzled the whole assembly, who for a long time sat in profound silence. The With Moderator stood like one hewihlered.

Accordingly the congregation knelt, while several of the leadinc members fervently addressed the iUrone of tirace.

Guy sent a Telegram to her Uncle, stating the time of their arrival. On nearing the house, they were surprised to see it brilliantly light ed from attic to basement, end, on entering, were greeted by many friends.

They took a short tour to the Continent, and, after their return, settled in New York, a much wiser and better couple for their one year's experience in actual labor. Anecdote ef Bishop Early.

Before the grass had grown, or a new moon shone upon the new made grave of Sally Jeffreys, a young country Methodist preacher was sent to the the missionary ground of Franklin. He preached in the Court-house, and took occasion to speak of the ball at Louisburg, and the beautitul girl and immortal soul which was lost in going from it, and that soul was dancing in Marmaduke Jeffreys, the brother of Sally Jeffreys, heard this sermon. lie was seen to leavp. tha Court- house, anguish, rage and distress dpnictid nnnn hU t.

The Hindoos are said to have no word for " friend." The Italians have no equivalent for our " humil ity." The Russian dictionary gives a word the definition of which 13, " not to have enough buttons on your footman's waistcoat ;" a second means to " kill over again ;" a third " to earn by dancing." The Ger mans call a thimble a " finger-hat," which it certainly is, and a grass hopper a " hay horse." A glove with them is a " hand-shoe," show ing that they wore shoes before gloves.

At the conclusion of a long and strong editorial article on the " Old and New South,' the Louisvilh Courier Journal of Thursday says : It was but yesterday that Lew's Wigfall, the most brilliant because the most substantial and scholarly repre?entative of the old school, passed away in Galveston. We knew him well and liked him wel', respected and admired him, quai rcled with him and laughed at hiin. We sa v, now that he is dead, (rod be with him ! Jiufc-he had tits day. He used it and enfrryed it, and why should we, the pie ent generation, accept his philosophy, the philoso- Pby of hi8 day because forsooth h was brave, ardent and attractive, when we know that l is philosophy, tested by war, wrecked the fortunes of all of us ? Nobodv compels us. We are free to think, to choose to do. We choose to take t'l New South, not the Old South. Mind- M of the dismal glories of the past, untortunate as they were, we re- joice in the opportunities oi tne present. We go back on nothing and to nothing. Ve are proud ot it all, as we would be proud of an ancestor who united to splendid genius and powers great, but gen erous vices. But we decline to im itate him. We dare not follow in his foot-steps lest we be not strong enough to hold our own. Every epoch must work out his own desti ny, each peculiar to itself. Ours is . , . to build up a new system, as the last was to preserve one that has passed away. An impassable gulf flows between. Across that rolling flood of years we may, indeed, still see the verdant, sunlit shores, and even descry a few remaining figures. But the distance is greater than our critics think it, and every day car- ries it farther and farther off. 1 , , rresently, the clearness ot the view- will be quite obscured, and we shall behold it as in a dream. Bachelors in Love a gossip writer mjuonaonoottery isays: Nothing is more amusing s ' .

They congratulate themselves on having luckily escaped or quite done with the miserable mlatuation, the puerile frivolity of an idler's hours. They put themselves on a par with a conceited atheistical Frenchman, whose liver being hopelessly dis turbed by dissipation, carps ad nauseam against the nothingness of life, and Byronically threatens suicide in emulation of the blase Yankee, who blew out his apology for brains in search of a new sensa tion. The grapes either are sour to these poor misanthropes, or they have lound a Tartar in the cooing-dove of courtship. But to those who have tasted, or better, have long enjoyed, what deserves the name of Love, is given a glorious temple on the weary road of life, the hallowed precincts of which are ever free from the dia- cords and disappointments marring pretty well all else.

"And very pleasant, too, dearest,'' whispers Algernon to the rare and radiant maiden at his side, who equally believesthere is no greater happi ness to be imagined than the pre sent intoxicating dream removed to some starry sphere and prolonged a infinitum.

Following this vein a little further, if we love our friends not only for what they arc but for what they are capable of be- ing, our very love will assut in very transforming them into the realiza tion of the ideal for which we love them, and thu3 the constant out pouring of our affections toward them will act as a perpetual lever, lifting them nearer and nearer the realization of their desires. Let no one doubt the truth of this; it has been proved by practical demonstra tion. Let us not be chary of compli mentary and appreciative utter ances.jbut forgetting self and remem bering those dearer or who should be dearer, in assuring their happi ness and success most surely secure our own. One of Disraeli's admier3, in peaking about him to Bright, said: "You ouht to give him credit for what he has accomplished, as he ;s a self made man."
