J The Living Machine. Injure the main spring of a watch and every portion of the works beeomes disordered. The human stomach is to the human system what that elastic piece of metal is to a chronometer. It in fluenccs the action of the other organs, and con- trols, to a certain extent, the whole living machinc. The comparison may be carried further: for as the weakness or other imperfecttions of the main spring is indicated on the face of the time piece, so also is the weakness or disorder of the stomach betrayed by the face of the invalid. The com- plexion is sallow or faded, the eyes are deficient in lustre and intelligence, and there is a worn, anxious expression in the whole countenance which tell us plainly as written words could do, that the great nourishing organ whose office it is to minister to the body, and to sustain and renew all its parts, is not performing its duty. It re- quires renovating and regulating, and to accom- plish this end Hostetter's Stomach Bitters may be ...

W. K. FOSTER, Editor. We see from the proceedings of the Sen- ate, published in the State Journal of the 22nd, that the bill known as the Flanagin amendment was defeated in that body 011 the 21st. The vote stood 14 for and 15 against the amendment, and that 011 the same day, the militia bill, known as the " House Bill," passed to engrossment. We have no reason, any longer, to doubt the final passage of this bill—111 fact, we presume it has already passed the senate, received the Governor's sanction, and become a law—so far as a measure, in violation of both the State and Federal Constitutions may become law. We have already called the attention of our readers to the most obnoxious fea- tures of this bill, and do not now propose to rehearse our arguments against it. The passage of the bill, under the circum- stances, forces us to open our eyes to the fact that a most violent and radical revo- lution of our State Government has been accomplished. Had it been the sole aim of the Govern...
