Persona of sedentary habits troubled with weak Be s,laasitude, 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 mtdiaU beneficial effect. They are exceedingly agreeable, perfectly pure, and must supercede all other tonics where a healthy, gentle stimulant ia required. They purify,*trengten and invigorate. They create a healthy appetite. They are an antidote to a change ot water an 1 diet. They overcome effects of dissipation and late hours. They strengthen the system and enliven the mind. They prevent miasmatic and intermittent fevers They purify the breath and acidity of the stomach. Tbey cure Dyspepsia and Constipation, They cure Diarrhea, Cholera, and Cholera Morbus. They cure Liver Complaint and Nervous Head ache. They make the weak strong, the languid bril liant, and are exhausted nature's great restorer. They are composed of the celebrated Calisaya bark, wintergreen, sassafras, roots and herbs, all preserved in perfectly pure 8t. Croii rum. For particulars, see circulars and testimonials around eaeh bottle. Beware of imposters. Examine every bottle. See that it has D. S. Barnes' signature on our pri vate U.S. Stamp over the cork, with plantation scene, and our firm signature on a fine steel plate ngraving on side label. See that our bottle is not refilled with spurious and deleterious stuff. We defy any person to match the taste or character of our jg. Any person 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 material therein, whether called Plantation Rittoro nr not, is a criminal nndet the TJ. 8. Law, and will be so prosecuted by ns. We already have our eye on two re-filling our bottles, Ac., who will succeed in getting themselves into close quarters. The demand for Drake's Plantation Bitters from ladies, clergymen, merchants, Ac., is perfectly incredible The simple trial of a bjttle is the evidence we pre sent of their worth and superiority. They are sold by all respectable druggists, grocers, physicians, hotels, saloons, eteamboats and country stores. P. H. DRAKE A CO., aug 2-eo3m 202 BROADWAY, N. Y. ^ 0 T I 0 E ?

Mzxpbis, Aug. 21.?This city was attacked .k n?ornlnK by the rebel Qen'l ^ brigades of cavalry, about <'??Kt^0?*aD.tl Th'? 'o"e left General Smith's front at Oztord on the evening of the 18th iost.t and made a rapid forced march to this city. They drove in our pickets, and dashed directly into the headquarters of Qen'l Washburne, who made a very narrow escape They then made a rush into Gen'l Bucklands headquarters, but he also succeeded in making his escape. They then attacked the Irving prison, but were repulsed by the guard there. They next visited the Gayoso House,expecting to capture General Hurlburt, but he was stop ping at a friend's bouse, and so the rebels did not succeed in getttlng possession of him. Our troops now attacked the rebels, and soon drove them from the city, killing about thirty and wounding about one hundred. The rebels captured thirty ol our men, and forty horses. Tley did not have time to obtain much plun der. Our loss in killed and wounded is about the same as that ol the rebels. Gen'l Wash burne is now carrying out a plan which it is expected will result in the capture of a large pcrtion of the attacking party. Later. Mkmpbis, Aug. 22.?The rebel raid In this city yesterday wa? a complete failure, and is so admitted by Gen. . Forrest. His intention was to capture Gen'l Washburne and other generals. Our troops being without leaders, the rebels carried of! some plunder, and captured quite a number of prisoners, including two officers and several clerks and telegraph operators. Nu merous acts of cruelty were perpetrated by the rebels. Among the wounded are Ool. Starr, of the 6th Illinois cavalry, and Lt. Irvin, of the 8th Iowa. The latter has since died. FROM POINT LOOKOUT. Rebel Attack en Our Outposts. Poiht Lookout, Md., August 23.?News has just come in from our outposts that Sergeant Major Wlnslow, of the 20th Veteran Reserve Corps, was killed in a skirmish, it is supposed with guerrillas. He, with five men, was sta tioned at or near Chaptico, in this county. The five men were also killed or captured, as they are misEing. It is supposed and reported here that a body of guerrillas, 30 strong, has crossed the Potomac, above St. Mary's inlet. A body of our cavalry has b-*en sent out In pursuit. THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY. Movements of the Enemy?The Rebels Falling Back. Baltimore, August 2?.?Reliable informa tion from the Upper Potomac shows that the report of the rebels having crossed into Mary land is incorrect. There was nothing beyond picket firing to-day. It Is believed by many that the rebels are falling back. ? The Crops and Harvest of Maine. Portland, Aug. 23.?Reports from reliable men in every county in the State, whose atten tion has been especially directed to inquiries concerning the state of the crops and the pros pect of the harvest, enable us to state with a good degree of confidence that the agricultural products of Maine this year will be abundant in regard to some crops more than an average and that in the aggregate Maine farmers, even at prices greatly reduced from those which now prevail, will receive a larger money com pensation than was ever realized by them in any one year. Peace Rumor. New York, Aug. 24, 3 p. m.?Rumors are current here and credited in the best financial circles that the Government has decided to send five commissioners to Richmond?three Rapublicans and two Democrats?to arrange the preliminaries for peace. It is also rumored that the commission is nowon its way to Rich mond. This rumor is said to have had a sen sible effect an the gold market, causing a de cline of some four per cent. fit there is any foundation for the above, it is^he first intimation we have had of it.?Ed.] A New Piratical Vessel Fitting Oat. New York, Aug. 24 ?By the arrival of the steamer Haze, from North Carolina, we learn that a new piratical steamer, one of a num ber, Is now in Wilmington,receivingherarma ment. She'is considered tne most formidable of them all. She will be the first to leave that port, if not already out. Important Arrest. Nbw York, Aug. 21.?The ship Victoria ar rived to-night. Franz Mr.ller, charged with the murder of Briggs, in the London railway carriage, was arrested on her arrival. Unsuccessful Search for the Tallahnssee. New York, Aug. 24 ?The frigate Susque hanna has returned from an unsuccessful search for the Tallahassee. FROM THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY. The Hagerstown Herald, of yesterday, says : lJy the arrival of parties from Shepherds town we have the following particulars of the fighing which occurred in the Valley on Sun day, the cannonading of which could be dis tinctly heard at this place, and which attracted large crowds of our citizens to the Dry Bridge and other comman llrg points near the town. The lighting took place on our right wing, near Berry vilie, in which the 6th corps was engaged with a large body of rebels. After a severe engagement of several hours, our troops succeeded in driving the rebels back about one mile and a half, with a loss to us of perhaps one hundred and flfty men in killed, wounded and missing. The rebel loss is estimated at between three and four hundred killed and wounded, and it was reported at Shepherdstown that we had captured some four hundred prisoners, but for the truth of this statement our informants were I unable to vouch. ; During the night, after the close of the engage- 1 ment, General Sheridau fell back a short dis tance and took up a stronger position. A letter in the New York Times, dated near Charlestown, 22d inst., speaking of the engage ment on Sunday,says: The intention of the rebel commander was evidently to gain the road to Martinsburg, and it is now known that most of liis infantry had been marching in the direction of Martinsburg all last night, and the attack of the moving column is only considered a feint on his part to gain time in order to cross the river. At any rate, his rear columns could be seen sweep ing past off to our light, and there can be no doubt that Martinsburg was their ultimate destination. Toward dark the firing ceased, and our army wa6 busily employed in throwing up breast works. The cavalry passed out of Charles town by the Martinsburg pike, and turned off to the right into the fields, where they bivou acked for the night. At this time it was evi dent that Gen.Sheridan purposed falling back on Bolivar Heights, for the supply trains and ammunition wagons were passing continually In the direction of Halltown. At ten o'clock the troops began to pass through Charlestown, and the scene as the dif ferent columns pushed on by the struggling moonlight was weird and exciting. Infantry scuttling along, artillery rambling by, and cavalry clattering on, the pattering of many feet* the glistening of mnsket barrels, tne dark and ghostlike cannon, tha white-topped wagons and ambulances, the clinking of sabers, and the quick snort of the houses, all combined to fill up a picture of exceeding interest and grandeur. The army now occnpy the heights near and on a line with Halltown, following the first of the three ranges of hills comprising the Heights of Bolivar. Our line is an exceedingly strong one, and it is to be hoped that the enemy will attack us in our present position. When 1 left Charlestown this morning at 5 o'clock skirmishing had been going on for some time, and it assumed formidable dimensions aa I cleared the town on my way to this place, A heavy*and constant dropping fire was kept up nntil 0 o'clock, bnt no shells were thrown by either side. Great disappointment by Union residents is expressed at the fallingback of our forces in the direction of Harper's Terry, and large num bers of refugees are this morning leaving this place by the daily train for Baltimore. From Winchester they went to Martinsburg, and vesterday they and the loyal citizens of that latter town harried Into Charlestown. honta* that they would be enabled to rSwEn atttt that near their homes; bnt last night theoo un fortunate gentlemen were compelled to oome to the Ferry, and seek safety stui further on, in Maryland and Pennsylvania, PUBLIC School#.?Editor Star ? Soma thm T?? "?o I obtained work in one of nubUc departments of this city. Miortly tner^r'? brought my wife and three children to W*?h logten, ana since that time hare sent two of my children to your public, or rather fret schools, whilst, owing to a little hameeiead i have in Massachusetts and the draft here, I claim residence or rather citizenship in said State. My income here ia 9900 per annum and free schooling for my children; whilst my for mer place of residence only yielded me 8425 income, ont of which I had the schooling to P*y of two children. i P to the present time I labored under the that Congress had endowed your u b7 ,iberal grants of land or a"d 'hat the corporation of yonr tn V me&ns- It recently has come Im J.fnniTh-i** 16,11 ?? the care, and 1 that the Federai*A? T?ry *r*atl5' astonished, tnat trie federal Qovernment has not largely endowed the public schools of a city where thS greater majority of the children of its em! ployees receive gratis, daily, lhe nf in struction This! consider decidedly un.usf" and wonder that your tax-payers submit to t so quietly. It appears to me that this frX school system is carried too far m a cltv lik* "Washington, having the limited resources which her sparse tax-list presents. Whilst I believe public monies can be applied to no better purpcses than those of education and improvements, nevertheless I fail to see the jusiice of your or any other corporation treas ury pay ing for the tuition of the children of psreLts lullyable to pay themselves for the schooling of their offspring?and particularly v here such parents are non-residents. Let us !o< k at some facts in the case. I find your enlightened and liberal minded City fathers set apart fully one-fifth of the whole annual income of the Corporation for school purposes. They wisely appropriate it, but the real burdan of paying this large sum falls upon your tax payers and business men. I would simply now ask howmany of the non-resident, cilhe holding and not (lraftabie heads of fami lies in this city, or, as it was once designated to me, ?< federal crumb-plate," are tax payers r Let your tax clerk answer. Now, I lurther ask, who send most children to your nublia schools, resident tax payers or noa-resident Qovernment employes f You will find, I am inclined to think, but little disparity iu the re spective number. Ergo, your tax payers par for the schooling of the children of your lion residents. Now this should not be, and I and other of your non-resident patrons of your public schools do not expect it of you. Or late years the public schools of this city have, through the exertions of your honorable Board of^enrteoand the competency of the teach "T* eoiujoyed, improved to such an extent that . ouryfre schools can compare, so far as they go, favorably with any private or public schools of the country. I, for one, wonld pre fer to send my children to yonr public school?, and were I even compelled to pay eqnally aa much as I would have to do at private schools. Tour esteemed Mayor, who. 1 understand, so modestly objects to having his name super sede that oi "Public" over the new school house in the Third District, appears ever ready to promote the interests ol education in the city wbereol he Is the honored chief magistrate, and only utters regrets that means are wanting to still further increase the efficiency of the public school system here. The corporate authorities seem disposed and anxious to co-operate in this commendable cans*, and I now suggest that, inasmuch as Congress seems to have forgotten you, among Its many other liberal gifts to wards promoting education in other sections of the country, parents who send children toyour free schools, and particularly such as are, strictly speaking, non-residents, should pav something towards relieving the Corporation irom additional expense. In order to main tain free education for the poor, I propose to grade this remuneration for benefits received about as follows: Each head of% family, whose Income is less than 8600 per annum according to the returns of the U. S. Assessor? Is to enjoy the privileges of the public schools for his or her children/ree of all expense. All heads of families whose income is oyer 8600 and under 81,000, 1 propose should pay, re gardless of the number ol children he or she may send to the Public Schools, the expense of schooling one child, and that, say at the low price of 825 per term of ten months. For every 8500 additional income, I propose the tuition of one child is to be paid for, so that for instance I, who expect to send three children to school, according to my Income will have to pay82> per year as the fee for tuition of one child and send my other two fr?e. My neighbor down street has an income of 81.&00 per annum, and sends also, three children, he has to pay for all three only 8<5 per year. My neighbor over the way with an income of 82,400 per annum, only sends one child to the Public Schools and pays for this privilege in addition to whatever tax is collected of him for school purposes, only 825. "Widow Smith may send six children free of all expense, &c. With the money thus raised ycru might ultimately build and sustain a high school, whereto even your wealthiest citizens might feel proud to send their children. 1 have written this article, Mr. Editor, with the sole view to draw out the opinions of more experi enced co-laborers in education, and with the hope that ultimately benefit may result to the cause generally, in a city where so much sin cere effort seems to pervade the corporate au thorities, as I find to be the case in Washing ton, whereof I hope some future day to become a permanent resident.
