MONDAY AUGUST 1, 1870. The Trouble of this Nation, From Europe there first came to this coun? try the highest type of mRti. By him this rich and magnificent continent was brought into the area of civilization, and l>ecamc a contributor to the subsistence and comfort of society in its international relations. With tbo energy, sagacity, wisdom, fortitude, and constancy of this superior tyi>e of man, such advancement of all human pursuits, such development of national power, have tiken place on this continent as have no parallel in the history of the world. The same mental and physical endowments which secured such grand results promised to continue to elevate the nation in all that is great until it reached the highest possible degree of exaltation of which society, in the present condition of mankind, Is capable. But just at the epoch when the nation has reached the position from which the grand future might be ?nfici|K?ted as a cer- 1 tainty, a new evil is presented to the young ; Republic whfrh has vexed Its councils and threatens to impair the forces which have ?o rapidly carried it forward to distinction among the nations. An inferior ty?>e of! men, who had been held as slaves, were ' freed and immediately elevated to an equality of political rights with the white race, that highest order of men on the earth. Thus the door was opened to all inferior races ; and our position on the globe, with the facilities of transportation now afforded, makes us iiaMe to the incursion of vast numbers of the Asiatic people, who are also inferior to the men who settled this country and have ruled it with such unexampled thrift and growth of power. They cannot be excluded from political equality while it Is accorded to the ncfrro ; tor in many respects they are his superior. They may come in more rapidly than it is possible to bring in the Caucasian types from Europe, and may settle the vast plains of I the West and become a great power in the nation.

Thus we have the great evil of the nation presented to us in a manner so threatening as to occasion uneasiness in the mind ot every reflecting man. The u horoogenitv of nations" is the grand principle of the modern political economists. Incompatible types and families of men cannot live happily under the name Government or in the same country. After four hundred years the Moors were driven out of Spain. The Greeks and Turks can never harmonize, though centuries have held them in political association. The Irish will never be content with English rule. And national antipathies and incompatibilities the world over are undying and immortal. But the worst condition of society in this world is that composed of superior and inferior types and different colors of men, and where the numbers of the inferior inhabitants are so great as to make a serious impression upon the public character and the public policy. Profligacy and vice take the place of industry and virtue. Disorder and and outlawry supplant order and security'. Corruption gets into every department of the Government. The country is torn by the rivalries of ambitious men, who take the field with armed retainers to seize by force what they cannot obtain by law. The roads are neglected ; the highways are beset with bandits ; agriculture languishes, and there is no advancement in art, no improvement in industry. Indeed, the nation becomes a prey to an innumerable and virious brood of evils of hybridised humanity, and the obstructive and ruinous consequences of a mingling of incongruous types of men as equals in the body politic. It is impossible that we can shut our eyes to the consequences of having as political equals families of men living in the bosom of this country who must ever remain separated from our people, and whose characters, tastes, and affinities are so distinct from ours as to render community of feeling and sympathy impossible. It threatens us politically, socially, and morally. Take the Chinese. They arc accustomed to lives that are so different ifrom ours that their employment amongst ub must produce the most disturbing Influences. They live so poorly and work so cheaply that their competition would be ruinous to our own laboring classes. We cannot expect a new mode of life to be adopted by the white laborer any more than by other classes of society, and if those other classes subject him to the necessity of such a change of habits as is next to impossible, it will produco disorder and bloodshed. (This is now threatened in California.) A writer in a western journal styles the introduction of Chinese as "a " conspiracy against the free, manly, honest, "and remunerative labor of American 4 * citizens, for the turpitude of which the " language has no fitting words." But the first step has been taken which opens the door wide. We cannot admit one inferior race and keep out another. And we are threatened with the degradation of labor, the nursery of a nation's power and greatness ; with the degradation of the Government in all its departments ; with the depreciation of the public character and the extreme depravity of the public morals. In the consideration ot this great national evil, party is nothing. It is only ephemeral, while the'evil, unchecked, must be enduring, and must inevitably seriou>ly obstruct the progress of this nation and defeat its attainment of that high destiny which it would under the exclusive rule of the true Caucasian undoubtedly reach.

England and the War. The news trom England turns out exactly as we expected. The Government has no idea of taking a hand in the war? the indignation of the Times against France notwithstanding. Indeed, there was no good ground for the interference of England, save so far art Khe might deem it proper to protect Belgium. This we have no doubt she has attended to through her minister to France. Napoleon has no doubt given satisfactory assurances, and England will furnish supplies an heretofore. The Raleigh Standard publishes the public confession of sixteen citizens of Alamance county, North Carolina, to the effect that they have been members of a secret organization styled the " White Brotherhood," or " Constitutional Union Guard " ; and that they have withdrawn from it, and are sorry for what they have done. It Is the old story of the reign of terror?the cowards and knaves turn State's evidence, and pubf " Boyd, wbo was nominated by the Democrats of Alamance for the Legislature. H olden had him arrested ; his wife got sick ; he begged to see II olden ; was allowed to do so ? being escorted by a guard to Baleigh for the purpose. Result of interview : Boyd 1b bailed and publishes his confession? heaping odium on the friends whose approbation he had sought, and whose honors ho had accepted. These people &re, by their own public confessions, North Carolina. Among

fnip*aehed and thefr testimony mad?i of little value. ' Holdkn if both cunning and unscrupulous. He lias managed very adroitly to spread alaj ra and apprehension amongst the timtd and fearful. He thinks, and probably Justly, that there are enough of these when I joined to his own secret " leagues " to give him the victory in the State. His coolness in denouncing secret political organizations, while himself being S beneficiary of that sort of party organization, id quite remark- ! able. We are glad th.it the North Carolina elections will take place at so early a day as next Thursday. The disgraceful and outrageous scenes now occurring there, which have been gotten tip to bear upon the elections, will probably cud as soon as they are over. Hut tnero is one thincr that will not end, that is the bad effect of the usurpation of power by the Governor in a time of peace, and bis trampling upon the courts, the constitutional and legal tribunals for the punishment of crime and the protection of the citizen. That docs not wind up with the elections. It is the sown wind? the seeded ret rihution? the embalmed revenge. Power that is corrupt never thinks of the future. It never considers that it may at some day need the protection of the laws and tribunals it now scorns and stamps upon. And so, by thefr own act, those who misuse it rob themselves of the only shield upon which they could rely when others succeed to the power which they have so vilely abused. Parties are nothing, principles everything in the administration of public affairs. The grent grievance to the country is the outrages upon the laws and upon the public peace and safety by the atrocious corruptions and usurpations of bad men such as we see now in power in North Carolina.

The sources of information of the progress of the war are very unreliable. The telegraph lines in both France and Prussia arc under the control of Government, and 110 message is allowed to be sent without the ofticial sanction. So all the reports of advantages here and there may be taken with a due allowance of salt. Macgrkgor, who navigated the waters in the Holy Land in his canoe, gives a passing notice of the expedition with which Americans " do their sight-seeing." One evening he met an American at his tent near the Jordan, the next morning he was gone. They are "so uncommon quick." Macgregor gives the following; dialogue between two American tourists at a hotel : "lien to Jurden, sir?" <4Yes, sip; come back 4:35 this afternoon." " Road? how's that ?" " Wal, sir. its rough? that's so. Nothin' particular to see but scalded hills. Come hack by Marsaba and Neby? (Jane, what do they call it ?) You goin' to Jurden ? Take my word the Dead sea is only a dull-like place, sir." The Prussian Policy.? We have received from Messrs. West & Johnston a little book entitled "Origin of the Bismarck Policy," <S:c. This policy is described and defined in the curious instructions given by the Great Frederick to his nephew. They are characteristic, quaint, and piquant, enough for Frederick; but it is presuming a little to otl'er this remarkable document as the origin of the Bismarck policy. ______________

VIRGINIA NEWS. Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch* LETTER FROM LEXIXGTOX. Quiet Election? Cvjfey is Disgruntled and Won't Vote? General Lee Accepts the Presidency of the Valley Railroad?

Your correspondent learns from an authentic source that General Lee has written a letter, to he read in Staunton at the meeting 011 Friday next, formally accepting the presidency of the Valley railroad, which Colonel Harman resigned in his lavor. It is understood that General Lee is to have an assistant, and that his duties are to be so irranged as not to couflict materially with !iis duties as president of Washington College. ?our people seem to appreciate the valua- | Me services of Colonel llarman in pushing forward the subscription to the Valley railroad with such wonderful energy, and his unselfish resignation of the office of President just as he has gotten matters in shape to make it valuable to him.

Grand Tilt beticeen Knights of Augusta and Hockbri dg e ?Eloquent Charge to the Knights by Major J. B. Dorman? Lexington C'rorcns an Augusta Lady QueenCoronation Exercises. Rockbridge Baths, July *20, 1870. The interest of this enchanting retreat is very much enhanced to-day by a grand tour- , lament, in which the knights of Augusta have accepted the challenge of the knights of Rockbridge. By stage, and omnibus, and carriage, last night and this morning, a number of persons came iu from Lexington, and to-day they have poured in from ;dl the surrounding country by every mode of conveyance, and many on foot. The proprietors* have exerted themselves to minister to the comfort of their guests, and the universal verdict seems to be that they have met with a very decided success. At 11 o'clock the bugle sounded, and Chief Marshal J. E. Bryant, assisted by Mr. LI ugh Adams, mustered the knights and formed them in front of the judges' stand, where the regulations were read and the programme announced. The following knights entered the lists : Henry A. McCormick, " Thirteen Stars ; " J. Newton Davis, " Champagne Charlie ; " William Brown, 4< Red Cloud;" Horatio Lindsay, "Rockbridge Iiaths;" J. p. O'Ferrall, " Parnassus ; " Henry G. Snider, " West Augusta;" James 31. Adams, 44 Smithfield ; v John C. Carson, " No. 1 1 ; " Alexander llarman, "Fairview ;" William A. Maekey, <4 Indian Mound ; " Rice Brubeck, 44 Mofl'ett's Creek ; " Dr. John A. Kerr, "Shamrock ;" Otho Hull, 4< Maryland ; " James Jordan, " Buena Vista ; ?*' C. W. Davis, <4 Lone Star ; " and Green Kerr, "Augusta." The knights were all in costume, and presented a very pretty appearance as they rode gaily forward. Major Dorman, having been selected to deliver the charge, made a grace! ul and fitting address. He spoke of the advantage's of public amusements propcrlv controlled and directed, and illustrated his positiou by a number rif admirably chosen examples from ancient and modern history. The address was received with liveliest satisfaction, and the knights gave three rousing cheers for the orator. The riding was in the main very good, though some of the horses were not well trained, and that ot the successful knights Very fine. The I contest for the first honor was very close between Mr. J. P. O'Ferrall (Knight of Parnassus) and Mr. AlexunderHarman (Knight of " Fairview "). They each took the ring four times out of five ; but Mr. O'Ferrall finally won the privilege of crowning the Queen, and Mr. Harman the second honor. The contest for the third honor was very close between Mr. Newton Davis and Mr.

Lfndsay-ttr. Davis talcing the ring live times in succession, but Mr. Lindsay beating him by taking it six times without missing; T ' ?> .. The coronation tool: placc to-night In the presence of an Immense crowd. Major Dorman was again pressed into service, and made a chaste, appropriate, and beautiful address, in which he briefly spolce of the appropriateness of bavin# the smiles of woman to crown the manly efforts of brave knights, and of the respect with which woman has ever been treated in Virginia, and especially in this beautiful valley. He eloquently exhorted the young men present to sec that it continued to be thus as long as this green crass grows or these clear streams glisten in their emerald beds. The queen and maids were then crowned in the following order : Queen of Love and .Beauty, Miss Ilamrick, of Augusta ; First ; Maid oi" Honor, Miss Lacy, of Lynchburg; Second Maid of Honor, 31iss Kuff, of Lexington. I If your correspondent approved of parading oefore the public the personal charms or minute descriptions of the dresses of the ladies, there would he much that he might say of the Queen and her maids. But he deems all that more titting for the private circle than for the newspapers, and must refer the curious to some enterprising reporter who wrote his account yesterday. We close for the mail while strains of music are wafted from the ball-room, and sounds that are not musical come from an opposite rliwAf.inn. \ IATOB.

The General is looking remarkably well and seems cheerful and hopeful. In company with a couple of friends this morning 1 entered into a conversation with him in relation to the European war. lie spoke very readily, and with great earnestness, evincing a great deal ot thought upon One of us said, 11 General, they seem, to be verv slow about getting to business | over the* water." "Oh no" lie replied; " two powerful nations, such as France ana Prussia, require time to prepare for a war. Each side must concentrate its forces betore attempting to cross into the other s country It would be a fatal mistake to cross without efficient force and material to sustain an invasion. I suppose the leader who first finds himself with the larger force w ill be the one to cross." AY hen asked about the relative merits of the troops lie said that the J leneli had uenerallv been successful in their combats with 'the Prussians, but this was as much due to their excellent generalship and the confidence of the men in their generals as to anv other cause. - It was a mistake to suppose that the Prussians were not soldiers. Military know ledge was more widely dillused among the people of Prussia than of France, because the Prussian conscript was enlisted for three years onlv, while the French were enlisted tor seven years. Thus the Prussians \\eie . more constantly changing, and military knowledge was diffused among a greater number of men. As to the generalship of the two amies, the General" expressed the opinion that Frauce had the advantage in point ot experience. The French generals had been tried in the Algerian, and Cnmeau.and Italian wars, and their merits proven. The merits of the Prussian generals could not lie discussed, as tliev had never had opportunity as vet to display them. The short e\mpai"ii of 1866 was devoid of military ac- j ti'ons and movements sufficient to prove the military ability of their generals. . (. Yes, but General, there is >on Moltkc , is not he a great General ? " ? < qe lias that reputation; but not deservedly, I think. He had the luck to defeat an old and inefficent General at Sadowa , whereas if he had had a General ot an) tact or ability opposed to him he would have received a terrible whipping *rom the only historical version ot the battle in English that I have seen it appears that lie started two columns from two dulerent noints to advance upon Benedek. .Ih?se two columns were not in communication with each other. Benedek calmly awaited the attack, and while engaged with one column the other took him in the rear of his rMit. But what good leader would have waited for these two columns to have eome upon him? Napoleon the First, or our own Jackson, would have advanced rapidly upon one of the columns with his entiie J army, defeated it, and then have returned I to take the other one in its turn. ; " His reputation, then. General, was as deserved as that of Grant, and he deserved I about the same credit for his strategy." "Oh no," rejoined the General, evidently mistaking the drift of the remark," Grant would never have staid there like Benedek. He would have advanced upon one ot the advance columns and engaged them separately." . Touching the subject of American sympathy with the opposing nations he expressed the idea, with a slight indication of disgust, that politicians would doubtless play upon their sympathies for Prussia in the approaching elections, in order to influence the German vote. He could not understand it, whv the press of the South was so unanimous in its sympathy with Prussia. In Savannah, where he lived, there was! hardly a day upon which the papers did not make'an attack upon Napoleon. The impression seemed to be that Napoleon was! a despot and King Frederick was I not. lie considered this a great mistake. Napoleon was a wise and sami- 1 cious ruler, and France was one of the I freest countries in the world, and nowhere could a man find better protection ror his life and property. The Prussian Government was one of the most despotic of Europe. The Germans were great Ked Republicans, and in this country had almost as a mass fought and voted against the 1 South. As to the interests of Europe in the struggle, he thought that they should be I with France, for if France were defeated Napoleon would be dethroned. Such an event as this would convulse France. audl there could be no peace in Europe for a I longtime. i A bystander playfully remarked : "General, you and General Lee ought to be over I there to settle this." , , I Laughing, he said : " The General and J mvselt would not make much headway with our soldiers with our limited knowledge of the German language. No leader should I command an armv without knowing his 1 men. Here, I think, is where the mistake lies in appointing so many American officers to the Egyptian armv. It is very nice for the officers, who are well paid, but it will not prove so well for the Egyptians." j Hero the conversation changed, and after enjoying it for some moments longer, du- 1 ring which we could not help being struck J with the General's unassuming and courteous bearing, we parted. There is to be a graua faney and mask ball here next Thursday night. Moxley, the costumer, is here with his dresses. It 1 will be a nice affair. Denis.

From ourJSpecial "Correspondent. Farmville - Corporation Election Good Crops - High Bridge. High Bridge, July 29, 1870. " The stranger within the gates " of Farmville could not fail to-day to see that the usual calm of this ordinarily quiet and respectable town had been disturbed by some event of interest. On inquiry he would learn that an election took place yesterday,

to which the citizens attached much importance. The late General Assembly amended the art of the incorporation of Farmville, giving the town a mayor, nine councilmen, and other officers. The first election, under the new charter, was held on the 28th July, 1870. The Conservative and Republican parties each had tickets to be voted for. The former was headed by Dr. W. W. H. Thackston as mayor, and the latter had the name of J. Seymour Holmes, Esq., the candidate for the same office. Two hundred or more ballots had been deposited in the box, when it was ascertained that by some mistake in the manuscript furnished the printer the Republicans were voting for nine "Trustees" instead of "Councilmen" mentioned in the charter. The election, however, continued, and resulted in the choice of Dr. Thackston (Conservative) by eleven votes over his competitor. It is alleged that but for the mistake referred to the Republican ticket (except for mayor) would have led the Conservative nomination by about a dozen votes. The commissioners of election return the Conservative councilmen. Whether Farmville, ambitious of imitating its metropolitan neighbor Richmond, will have an election contest over its municipal officers has not yet transpired. It is creditable to all parties to see that there was an entire absence of angry feeling in the election, and that there is 110 difference of opinion on the admitted fact that the mayor-elect, a most respected citizen and gentleman, will discharge the duties of his trust with great fidelity and with entire satisfaction to all parties. There are pleasing evidences of returning prosperity in old "Prince Edward. The farmers wear a more cheerful look. The crops-especially of corn and tobacco-are fully equal to "the most successful of the late years' planting. It is supposed that the buyers of the " weed" have made profits on the past year's adventures, and the " good time coming," it is hoped, is not far off. The gentlemen from the North who own and are working farms in this county and Cumberland command the confidence and respect generally of all who have had the good fortune to make their acquaintance. They all seem to be very diligently engaged in the commendable employment of attending to their own business. The high bridge is rapidly progressing to completion, and the belief is that trains can pass over this great iron structure by the 15th August. It is also asserted that the contractors will assort the right to charge the company for the use of the bridge till the 1st September, when by their contract they must deliver it. What foundation there is for such a rumor we know not. Hampden.

The Conservative Congressional Convention in the Eighth District. Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch. Marion, Smyth cockty, Va., > July 29, 1870. ) For the purpose of nominating a candidate to represent the eighth" concessional district in the Congress of the United States, the Conservatives of the district met in convention here yesterday at noon, and adjourned to-day at noon. The Convention organized temporarily, and afterwards permanently by the election of William "Watts, of Roanoke, as chairman, and the editors of the newspapers present as secretaries. A committee on permanent organization was appointed, who submitted a" majority and a minority report. The majority imported to take the tchole registered vote Of the district in the last, gubernatorial election, as the basis for voting in the convention. The minority were in favor of counting only the actual Conservative vote in that election. The majority argued that there are a large number of Conservatives now who were not Conservatives then , and that it would be unfair not to give them a showing in the convention. The majority report was adopted. One was reminded by the doings of the convention of the good old times when heavy sparring and good-humored wit gave zest to conventions. There were quite a number of good speakers, who belabored each other to such an extent as to cause repeated cheers. The Fowlers and McOinnis, of Washington; Kent, Crockett, Blair, and Pierce, of Wythe ; General Walker, of l'ulaski j Shelton, of Montgomery; McCaull, ot Itoanoke, and suncliy others, kept things lively by continual cross-firing. J. I*. Barrett, of Wythe, made a very sensible speech, though speaking is not in his line. The prominent candidates were General William Terry, of Wylheville : Colonel Humes, of Abingdon : General Bowen, of Tazewell ; and Mr. Burns, of Scott. The names of all the candidates except General Terry were withdrawn , and, upon motion, he was unanimously chosen. There was not a dissenting voice, and cheer after cheer went up. General Terry commanded the Old Stonewall brigade during the late war, and was known to be a most gallant soldier. Ilis opponent, it is supposed, wiil be the unquenchable (will that word do ?) Favette McMullin. Before the convention assembled he made a speech announcing the determination of the "old wagoner" to run against any "blooded nag" the convention might put ou the track. ' The blooded horse is now on, and the Governor will have to do better running than ever before to beat the race. The district is fully aroused, and its speaking men (their name is legion) will see to it that no "independent" Or Radical shall be elected. The Hon. Fayette McMullin proposed in his speech to execute his bond for one hundred thousand dollars, with good security, that he would keep out of the way in future, provided the Conservatives|would put him 011 the track now. The result shows how very blind the convention was. Is it not passing strange that the convention should refuse so good an oiler? We had rain last night, and it is steadily coming down as 1 write. From present indications this year will be known as the crop year. The harvest of small grain was verv fine, and corn promises an abundant yield. Besides, the crop of fruit, both cultivated and wild, is immense. Starvation seems far removed from this people, for which should we uot all be grateful '( Special.

Candidate for Congress in the Fourth District. To the Editors of Dispatch : Gentlemen,? The fall campaign is rapidly approaching, and it is well that the attention of our people should be directed towards the choosing of proper candidates to represent them in the national councils. in the fourth district, now represented by Booker, the name of M. II. Clark, Esq., the delegate from Pittsylvania, has been prominently mentioned. We do not know a gentleman whose claims for this position are stronger than those of -Mr. Clark. He is not a politician, but is a sensible, earnest, and practical man, and would make a capital representative of all the people ot his district. His actions in the State Legislature proves this. Mr. Clark's disabilities uuder the fourteenth amendment have been removed, and It is important that xve should avoid the fatal error of ehooeing men laboring under disabilities. "We trust he may be prevailed upon to become a candidate, and thai the people will take him up with one accord as the Conservative nominee. The interests of merchants, mechanics, farmers, and laboring men, will always be sato in the hands of such a man as M. H. Clark. Pittsylvania. Two Yofng Men Piiowneo.? We regret to learn that on Monday morning last, as Major Howard, engineer on the Chesapeake and Ohio railroad, was removing his camp from the mouth of Laurel creek, on New river, to another point on the line of the railroad, two of his assistants are supposed to have been drowned by the upsetting of a skiff. Their names arclloward and Hammond. They were proceeding down the river, their friends in advance of them. The ski IF came down the river empty, and it is supposed that the voung men' were drowned, as no tidings have been received from them. ? Greenbrier Independent. This young man Howard was the son of Mr. Howard, late the State librarian, and nephew of Mr. Howard who was killed in the capitol on the 27th of April. Robpeby at Nineveh, Va.? A letter received in this city says that five colored men went to the store of Mr. JohnR. Rust, at Nineveh, Warren county, one night last week, and tying rags saturated with chloroform to sticks, which they pushed through the open windows, administered , the uniesthetie to the proprietor and his I

clerk, Mr. Grymes Meade, who were asleep In their beds. The thieve! then robbed the store of about $500 worth of good*. Having effected the robbery they conwulted about murdering and burning ths inmates with the store, and that, too, in the hearing of those whose fate hung upon the decision, but who were too much affected by the chloroform to offer any resistance. The villains, however, determined to be satistiedwlth the plunder, and made off with it, but they were soon afterwards captured . and secured in jail, and have confessed their guilt. ? Alexandria ( Va.) Gazette. CoNTINtXB THH " New MOVEMENT." ? It pains us to hear the Richmond Enquirer talking about Democracy at this time. It is so impolitic. Let us go on In the same old way for the present. Let us keep up l the "new movement" until we feel sate to I join a national party. I Just about now it is very comfortable to be on the Virginia side. We who live near the border can realize it better than those at a distance. Kirk can't oome over here. I The difference between having "Walker and TTolden for Governor is very great. On the Virginia side everything is going on smoothly and prosperously. What a glorious policy it was to adopt what was called the "new movement." Some people can never learn wisdom. If .'hey can't have their way they are willing to go to the devil and carry their friends with them. It was wise to take Walker for Governor, and our best policy is to eschew national politics for some time to come. ? Danville Times.

We are glad to welcome back home our honored old chieftain, who returned on Tuesday last, and to find him looking so well and in such fine spirits. We learn that the distinguished physician (Dr. Buckler) whom he consulted, pronounced his disease as by no means serious, and predicted a speedy and entire cure. Lexington Gazette. Reported Murder.? It is reported that a fight occurred near Amherst Courthouse, a few days since, between two negro men, during which one was cut on the head with an axe, and died of his wound in a few hours.

Ofrr THE LIFE-SUSTAINING PRINCIl'LE? The vital and tha muscular syatenn are entirely dlatlnct from each other. A man may liave tie brawn of a Hercules, but if be la deficient in vital energy he will not wear as well, or last ac long, or be as healthy and bappy while he doe3 last, as the man of ordinary, of even slender* bnlld, who possesses a larger share of tilts animating principle. One of the greatest recommendations of that pure vegetable luvigorant, H08TETTER'3 STOMACH BITTSK8, is that it Increases the vital force of the system. No medicine can double tbo volume of a man's muscle or thicken and vulcanize his thews and sinews ; but Hostetter's Bitters has an effect much more important. Its use promotes constitutional vigor. It re-lnforces the life-power, of which bone and sinew and muscJe are merely the Instruments, holding the same relation to It that machinery doei to steam. Let the slight and apparently fragile take heart; they may hive more stamina, though f*r less physical strength, than ths broadshouidtred athletes they regard with envy. To restore, to sustain, to Increase, thia stamlnal principle, which, when In fhll supply, is the source of health and the best guarantee of lontrevitv. isaspecial property of the famous restorative. It is not only a specific for dysppsia, biliousness. intermittent fevers, constipation. <tc.. and a preventive of Jill diseases of a malarious charac- ! ter, but the best of all medicines for strengthening tee constitution and awakening thepoweis of na- ! ture from whatever cause they mav have become lethir>flc. aul-deodAwlw ~ii r MISHLEIVS HERB BITTERS.?
