Persons of sedentary habits troubled with weak ness, latitude, palpitation of the heart, lack o^ appetite, distress after eating, torpid liver, con stipation, Ac., deserve to suffer if they will not try the celebrated PLANTATION BITTERS, which are now recommended by the highest medi cal authorities, and warranted to produce an im nitdi.au beneficial effect. They are exceedingly agreeable, perfectly pure, and must supercede all other tonica where a healthy, gentle stimulant is required. Tbey pnrify, strengten and invigorate. They create a healthy appetite. They are an antidote to a change of water and diet. They overcome effects of dissipation and late hour?. Tbey strengthen the system and enliven the mind. They prevent miasmatic and intermittent fevers. They purify the breath and acidity of the stomach. They cure Dyspepsia and Constipation, Tbey cure Diarrhea, Cholera, and Cholera Morbus. They cure Liver Complaint and Nervcus Head ache. They make the weak strong, the languid bril liant, and are exhausted nature's great restorer. They are composed of the celebrated Calieaya bark, wintergreen, sassafras, roots aud herbs, all preserved in perfectly pure St. Croix rum. For 'particulars, see circulars and testimonials around each bottle. Beware of imposter?. Examine every bottle. Bee that it has D. 8. Barnes' signature on our pri vate U.S. Stamp over the cork, with plantation scene, and our firm signature on a fine steel plate engraving on side label. Bee thatour bottle is not refilled with spurious and deleterious stuff. We defy any person to match the taste or character of our goods. AnrperEon pretending to sell Plantation Bitters by the gallon or in bulk, is an imposter. We sell only in our log cabin bottle. Any person imitating this bottle, or selling any other materia) therein, whether called Plantation Bitters or not, is a criminal under the U. 0. Law, and will be so prosecuted by us. We already bare our eye on two parties re-ailing our bottles, Ae., who willBucceed in getting themselves into close quarters. The demand for Drake's Plantation Bitters from ladies, clerg>men.merchants, Ac., is perfectly incredible. The simple trial of a bottle is the evidence we pre sent of their worth and superiority. They are sold by all respectable druggists, grocers, physicians, hotels, ?aloons, steamboats and country stores. P. H. DRAKE 1c CO., aug 2-eo3m 209 BROADWAY, N. Y. ?

After alluding to tbe recent Invasiou, he asks, "How could an agricultural people, in an open country, be expected to rise suddenly and beat back a hostile foe which bad defeated organized veteran armies of the Governm-nt? I is, of course, expected that tbe inhabitants of an invaded country will do wbat Is in tbelr power to resist tbe invaders, and tbe facts will abow, 1 think, that the people of these counties hbve not failed in tbia duty." He severely condemns the gibes and scoffs which have been thrown upon the people by the newspapers and citizens of other Sta'e*, and qno'ts a letter addressed by '-jm, together with Governor Bradford, of Maryland, to President Lincoln, asking that tbe recruits raised by the two States shall be credited to the quotas on the last call made, and be armed, equipped, and supplied as other volunteers m the service.

Tbe suggestion bas, the Governor says, been frequently made by unreflecting persons that tbe State could raise a force and ke*p it per manently in the field for her defence. Apart lrom other considerations, it ia to be observed that the expenses of such a measure would be quite beyond4he present ability of the State. To raise and maintain an army of fifteen regi ments?and any smaller force would be inad equate?wonld involve an annual expenditure of more than 615,000,000. * Tlie Constitutional Amendments.

The former only is supposed to be ueed for food, but cases are said to have been traced to ragouts, ostensibly of hare or rabbit, sold in the Parlsn n restaurants, and w hich were shrewdly suspected to be cases of dishonest snr stitution. Sausages from swine's fl' i-b. rwoked but uncooked, are favorite arti cles of diet among the Germans, and in these Trichinir are often found. Under done pork may contain them living, but if the entire sub stance of the meat be raised to the temperaturs ef boiling water, the vitality ot the worms is destroyed. The appearance of this disease In this coun try makes the above facts of value to the public. We annex tne description of a case recently occurring in New i ork, (erroneously stated to be the first in his country) taken from the Buffalo Courier. The June number of tha Buffalo Medical Journal contains a long edito rial detailing the facts concerning a newly dis covered disease which has appeared in Cheek to wt?ga. Erie County, New York. The dis covery was reiently noted in Germany, but the cues descr.bea in tbe Journal are the first ?which have been positively Identified in this country. The disease Is caused bv tbe presence in the muscles of a worm or parasite, known as .ti e 7>itAtr,<r ,'pirilat, ard In the cases re corded, the vic'ims have become infected irom eaMr g he flesh of swine, in which the worm cLaLced to abound. The credit of dtscoyering 'he disease is due to Br. Krombein, of Buffalo* who, in connection with Br. Buyler, of Lan caster. in the middle of May last, attended two patients, ft man and his wiff, In (Ibwkto* waga. Both of these died. Another family of seven members, at MeiTilla, in tbat county, w as attacked in tbe eame way. The parents died, but the children are reported alive, though in a dangerous condition. Br. La throp writes tbe lesult of a microscopic exami nation of the case. He says: "Tbe specimen of human muscle taken from a person after death, and also the sausage ho bad eaten, which you gave me. supposing then to contain tbe trichina? spiralis, 1 carefully ex amined under the microscope, both alone and wil> Br. Had ley. The parasite was found id both m great abundance, but in different states. In ;he mrscle taken from the bnman body tha W'.rm was free, while in the sausage It was encysted. In tbe first 1 failed to find the worm inclcsed in a cyst. Tbev were often more or less coiled, two or three turns of an elliptical form ; but often the shape was not regular, though seldom straight. The irregular form in which the worm was found was probably caused by tearing and scraping tbe muscle, to render it thin enough to become transparent under the microscope, the normal shape being more cr less coiled. Under the microscope tha worm could be readily seen with a low power, and presented uniformly a pointed bead, a body increasing in size to the tall, which had somewhat of a truncated appearance, with a slight fissure. There was an appearance of an intestinal canal running the whole length ot tbe body, somewhat undulating, and filled with granular matter. "In tbe portion of the sausage examined tha worms were inclosed in an ovoid cyst, and here were found free. Even scraping tbe mus cle did not rupture tbe cyst. They were much smaller than tlie free worm, were always coiled- occupyiug the centres of the eyes, and in most cases single. One cyst only was ob served in which were two worms, separata from each other, each occupying the extremity of the cyst; the cysts were closed by the mus cular fibres, which had the appearanoe of having been pushed aside, and at either end the spate where the muscular fibres separated was filled with lat globules. I did not find a cyst without a worm. Tbe appearance was, as here represented, magnified over two hun dred diameters. The worm occupied about one-third of the cyst space. In one small piece of the muscular tissue of the sausage, ? should rather eay small collection of scrapings, nearly thirty cysts containing worms were counted."
