The Pension Act recently passed
by Congress gives a pension to all

served fourteen days, or were in
any engagement, and to the sur
viving widows of such soldiers, no
matter when married. No proof
of loyalty is required. This Act
also restores to the pension rolls
the names of all persons surviving,
who were pensioned for services in
the War of 1812 or in any of the
Indian Wars, and whose names
were stricken from the rolls at the
commencement of the late war. No
proof of loyalty is required.
THE VOTING PREcINcTs.-The Leg

Peasterville, Yonguesville,. Glad
den's Grove, Durham, Bidgeway,
Horeb Churcb, B3lythewood and
Bear Creek. It .will be seen that
we have nnw eleven precincts, in..
stead of ten as formerly. The new
precinct is Bear Creek. The people
in that section have long wanted a
convenient voting prooinct, and the
Act just passed gives it. Section 2
of tha Act p1'eman i 'n.i ...j

atrued to embrace an area sufficient

TOTAL ABSTINENCE SAVING WI1E TILL IT
There is a curious story about some native
wines which are extensively advertised nowa
days, and have only recently been put upon
the market. Dr. Underhill, the well-known
grape-grower of Croton Point, died in 187r.
Some of his heirs entertained temperance
views of such extreme kind, that they were
unwilling to allow the stock of wines then on
hand to be sold or any more to be made.
The grapes have sometimes been sent to
market, and sometimes left to decay upon
the vines. It is only now that the other heirs
have succeeded in arranging for a settlement
of the estate and the sale of the wines on
hand. Among these is a wine of the vintage
of z864, described as a "Sweet Union Port,"
but suggesting the Imperial Tokay more
than any other European wine, and being
wholly unlike any other wine of American
growth. Its purity, age and -nellowness are
remarkable, and both physicians and wine
fanciers have a special interest in it as the
oldest native wine now accessible in any con
siderable quantity. The whole stock is in the
hands of the wel-known wholesale grocery
house of the Thurbers.-N. Y Triune,
Nov. 19, z6'q.
The above speaks for itself, but we would
add (hat this is the pure juice of the grape,
neither drugged, liquored nor watered; that it
has been ripened and mellowed by age, and
for medicinal or sacramental purposes it is
unsurpassed. It can be obtained from most
of the leading Druggists throughout the
United States, and at wholesale from the
undersigned, who will forward descriptive
pamphlet, free of charge, on application,
