local movement in revival of the lust
spirits of Democracy. We are as
sured by Mr. Jacobs that the resolu

place to Chinese in the factory, but
that some certain employees who are
constantly harassing the managers
may be discharged if they continue
to give the Company trouble. We
were not present at the meeting, and
do not endorse the movement.

Gentlemen : The watches manufactured ty
you have been in use 011 this Railroad for
several years by our euginemen, to whom
we furnish watches as part of our equip
ment. There are now some thnje hundred
of them carried on our line, and we consider
them good and reliable time keepers. In
deed, I have great satisfaction in saying
your watches give us less trouble, and have
worn and do wear much longer without re
pairs than any watchas we have ever had in
use on this road. As you &re aware we for
merly trusted to those of English manufac
ture, of acknowledged good reputation, but
as a class they nver kept time as correctly,
nor have they done as good service as yo'irs.
In these statements I 11111 sustained by my
predecessor, Mr. Lewis, whose experience
extended over a series of years.

Gentlemen: I have nwhesitation in saying
that I believe the great majority of locomo
tive engineers have found by experience that
Waltham Watches are the most satisfactory
of any for their uses. Thev run with the J
greatest accuracy and steadiness, notwith
standing the romzh riding of an engine, and,
as I have never known one to wear out, they
must be durable. I hope to see the time
when railway companies will generally
adopt your watches, and furnish them to ail
engineers and conductors. In my opinion
it would greatly tcud to promote regularity

LET IT EF. DISTINCTLY BORNE IX
mind that BOSTETTER'S BITTERS
is a MEDICINAL. PREPARATION, pot
beverage, and that it is entirely free from
the attributes which create and foster a pas
sion for stimulants, and which belong to all
the distilled and fomented liquors of cojn
mercej. It alcoholic element is deriyed from
sound rye, a grain which, according to tlie
testimony of the most distinguished analyti
cal ehemjstsyields a moro wholesome spirit
thau any o'.her known substance. But the
QUINTESSENCE OF RYE employed in the
manufacture- of the Bitters, must not be c&
fouuded with the rye spirit sold in the mar
ket as Bourbon ana Mouongahela Whisky.
The very best braujjs of those liquor pro
cured forAhospital use, and preferred by tljie
Medical Staffs ot the Army and Javy to any
other liquor, are not to be compared in ex
cellence with the article used in the concoc
tion of the, GREAT STOMACHIC. It is
subjected, in the first instance, to a proces
which deprives it of the pungent and acrid
elements proved by chemical test to exist ia
even what are deemed Jhe finest imported
and domestic spirits, and after being thua
purified, is kept cu hand long enough to
give it mellowness before being medicated.
The chief virtue of the preparations is not,
however, in its spirituous basis, but. in tle
juices of the tonic, aperient, corrective and
antibilious vegetable products so largely
intermixed with it.
Perhaps, it may be ursed, that if .they im
part to the alcoholic fluid its preventive and
remedial qualities, water impregnated with,
the same ingredients would answer the pur
pose as well, - ..Nothing- but profound izno
rance of the laws of physiology and patho
logy can excuse such an error. Only by , a
difi'usible stimulant can the medicinal con
stituents, that are to fortify the system
against disease, or counteract diseased ac
tion, be convej-cd directly to their destina
tion. The stimulant rapidly pervades the
animal structure, carrying with it to "the
points where it is needed, the required anU
dota. VV ater will not do this. It has, com
paratively speaking, no propelling or diffu
sive power. Nor 13 this all. Nothing but
alcohol .will preserve the medicinal property
of. 'vegetable extracts iu a fluid. state. Mix
them ..with water and the compound wilt
ferment, turn sour and become worse than
(. Jt is claimed that HOSTETTER'S Errl
TLRs commend thejmeives to th special
favor of the Temperance Physician, as the
only diffusive stimulant which be can pre
scribe without danger of unduly exciting . the
brain of his patient, and pf creating that
morbid thirst for alcohol which doses of un
medtcated spirits are so apt to engender.
. To argue -.Vtth the .dogmatists who assert
that sti implants are always r'nnressary an
pernicious, would be a waste of time. Tho
most eminent lich'fs of Medical Science have
settled that question, anc it. is not worth
while to have a coniro'firy w?th the rush
light. The leading champions of temper?
nice in the United States, Horace Greeley
among the number," have announced that
they are not in .favor. of prohibiting the .em
ployment of spirituous liquors us medi
cines. So in udi for the monl claims of the arti
cle nudeT.ttie temperance code. The ground
being thus cleared, and.it is . hoped, , tq the
satisfaction of every lational champion of
sobriety, the specific application of the. Bit
ters to the prevention and cure of the " ills
that flesh is heir to," corned next in order. -
i Peasons whose. lives are peculiarly seni
tive are said to be of a "bilious ln-bit." The
morbid influences' which affect others, in a
general way, seem in their cases to operate
directly and mainly upou the biliary organ.
Many who are thus predisposed to an over
flow of bile are subject to periodical attacks
of biliousness, accompanied by pain in the
right side, languor, pain between the should
ers, gloomy feelings, and that peculiar, tinge
of the complexion which indicates that u
portion of the bile'wbich should have passed
oil' through the bowels, has been misdirected
to the venous system,.ind is present in ...the
superficial bloodvessels. To avert these
symptoms, and the general'disorder of the'
internal organs, which they involve, it is ad
visable for individuals of a' biliov.s habit to.
take at 'east two doses of HOSTETTER'S
DlTTE! duf!y at sul'5 times as thev have
'reasou- to apprVheud an attack. Indeed, all"
who have a constitutional and temperamen
tal tendency to liver complaints, would do
well to take a dose of this admirable ANTI
BILIOUS STOMACHIC everyday.' When
the great secretive gland is seriously disor
dered, the medicine usually resorted to is
mercury, which, unless administered with
very great caution, is infinitely more dan
gerous than the disease it is intended to'
subdue. In a large majority of tlie case
treated with calomel, or blue pill, the anti
bilious and alterative properties of the Bit-'
tors would produce tlie desired effect' And
let it be borne in. mipd Ljiat, whereas mercury
in every shape is :m insidious poison, the
medicinal ingredients of this preparation',
consist exclusively of hole-some vegetable
extracts, which are diffused through the
sv.stem b. means of the purest and mildest1
of all known stimulants. , . . .
