Febri Jaet 26. 1870.local amp is Folly to Praise the Bucklers now a a performing at Casino Hall. The theatre is crowded to repletion and More would go could they find a convenient seat after the performance commences. This is what a new Orleans correspondent says of them a they Are the Ablest exponents of their school of amusements that have visited this City for some time. The songs of or. Swain Buckley and the double songs of Hogan and Hughes Are immense especially their a a shoo Fly a while Tho vocalization of Charles hey Wood is remarkable. The clog dances of Johnny Rice Are Good while their burlesque Are extremely funny. Miss Medora Beckers voice is unsurpassed her Arias being scientifically last night till opera was Lucretia notices. A lovers of pure Coffee and a comfortable lunch will find them at All hours of the Day or night at the stall of or. He is no. 25, in the Market. Give him a trial and you will find cheap clean and pleasant refreshments. Febl5-lm. A a i wish you would not give me such Short weight for my Money said a customer to a grocer who had an outstanding Bill against him. A and i wish you give me such Long trait for mine a was the ready reply of John Foth Tho grocer on the Corner of both and Mai Ket streets. He is both witty and Wise and Sells Good groceries. A the following is a specimen of the new York suns a a personals gen. Burnside attended Wallack a a theatre on Friday evening. Lie visited the handsome Theodore Moss during the evening and told him that a a school was the Tinett play he had Ever seen. The Hon. Or. Moss then invited him into his private of tick a Siml uttered him a Elass of 1825 whisky. The general drank it smacked his lips and said it was almost the finest whisky he had Ever tasted and nearly As Fine As Couget a White wheat California whisky. A when Daniel Webster and his brother Ezekiel were together they had frequent literary disputes on one occasion after they had retired to bed they entered into a squabble about a certain passage of one of their school books and having risen to examine the authorities in their Possession they set their bed clothes on tire and nearly burned their fathers dwelling. On being questioned next morning in regard to the Accident Daniel remarked that a they were in Pursuit of Light but got More than they he should Nave Pone to Charles Holmes Berlocher a building who Sells Good Petroleum and other groceries. A a Sou of or. Goer Well known As author of the famed a a Grieras almanac Quot was asked by a gentleman a a do you Ever make calculations upon the weather like those for which your father is so celebrated 7�?� a ooh a and How do your calculations agree with those of your lather a a very Well indeed Quot a answered Young Grier a we Are never Metje than one Day a a Why that it is wonderful indeed Only one Day difference 7�?� a a yes Quot said Grier a a he can always Tell the Day before when it is going to rain and i can always Tell the Day afterwards there arc such people in the world. Now some find out that they want a charter Oak stove and buy it of Bennett amp. Hinkle while others wait until some old smoke Box drives them out of the House. A a distinguished methodist minister and prominent Temperance lecturer once remarked that go where he would from one end of the country to the other he hardly Ever failed to find Plantation bitters and while he condemned Tho practice of using these bitters too freely he could not conscientiously say that he would discard them from his Side Board for to had himself experienced beneficial results from their use and that from a Long and close observation he was convinced that when used moderately and As a Medicine exclusively they were All that was recommended. At the same time he warned his hearers not to pull the Cork too often for they were far too pleasant a tonic to trifle with. Magnolia to the Best imported German Cologne and sold at half the Price. Feb22d cod communicated. Galveston feb. 26, 1370. Editor flakes bulletin Tho services of Tho fire department and its efficiency at the late fire having been called into question by Tho Galveston news it is my duty to chief Engineer to place the facts before the Public. I shall therefore give a simple recital of what to did do As Tho Best possible reply to an accusation for not doing something else. Tho first apparatus on Tho ground was hand engine no. 4, which by direction of the assistant Engineer took position on 22d Street and put water on the rear of Tho fire. No. 4 was soon removed by the chief Engineer to make room for Steamer no. 2, and to Check Tho fire in front. To do this no. 4 was placed in Tho Alley and ordered to take her Hose through Ono of the Brick stores to reach the fire. This was prevented by the occupants and Tho value of the Stream was inst for Tho want of Hose enough to Lead around Tho Corner of Tho Street. Some of the occupants told one of the firemen that they Mccre insured and did not meant him or his Stream through their House. Steamer no. 2 immediately put on two streams Ono of which was handled by Tho washingtonians and the other by themselves. The Island City a Stream saved Tho wooden building in Tho rear and prevented the fire from communicating to Blum a new building. The washingtonians then got water from no. 2, and worked on e. S. Wood s building which they saved. The Island citizens worked hard All night even digging holes in Tho Sand so that their suction could get at Tho water. The washingtonians being without apparatus assisted the Island citizens. No. 3 took water from the rear of the commercial hotel and did Good service. Having exhausted their first water no. 4 took water fro if Tho Palmetto houses old Cistern Aud worked in the Back part of Tho Brick stores. No.1 5 hand engine went into Tho Bay 150 Yards and then with no. 6, putting water on the fire assisting materially to save l. Ii. Woods building. It is Proba ble that had the Star state possessed a sufficiency of Hose the Brick buildings on the strand might have been saved. The Hose of no. 1 was loaned to two and three enabling them to do the service they did. It was this that enabled number 3 to do such Good service Back of e. S. Wood and after having with the assistance of 4, 5 and 6 checked Tho flames water was held in Reserve for use if necessary. Tho Hook and ladder company did Good services in various places out there was a great a efficiency of ladders and buckets although All the ladders belonging to Rice amp Baulard f. D. Harrar and the messes. Kings were used. The Hook amp ladder company Mot the same refusal that was Given to number 4, and in Ono Case where they were greatly needed. It is much easier to find fault than it is to work. Maily men stand around Tho fire and some of them members who talk and find fault but do no service themselves. These Are not True firemen. If property owners forbid Entrance to their premises because they Are insured it will e impossible to extinguish fires. Respectfully John Westerlage chief Engineer fire department. a commercial and financial. Bulletin office i Friday evening february 25, 1870.

Sometimes without any assignable cause Tho physical strength and animal spirits give Way and a strange torpor Falls alike on the body and intellect. There is Little or no pain perhaps Bat the natural vigor and elasticity of the nervous and muscular system seems to Havo departed and an Indi Fforence to the pleasures of life and even of its grave responsibilities takes the Placo of that Earnest interest in both which characterizes every Well balanced mind when in a Lic Althy condition. This state of partial collapse is often the premonitory symptom of some serious malady. It indicates unmistakably that Tho vital Powers Are languishing and need a stimulant. In such cases the effect of a few doses of Hostet ter s stomach bitters is wonderfully Benell Cial. The great tonic wakes up the system from its browse. The secretions and the circulation receive a new impetus. The relaxed nerves recover their elasticity under the operations of the spec Flo like the slackened strength of a musical instrument in the process of tuning. Lethargy and debility Are replaced by Energy and vigor the spirits Rise and use that almost seemed a Burden while the season of depression lasted becomes once Moro enjoyable. That such a Radical change should be produced by a remedy entirely devoid of the powerful alkaloids and minerals so extensively used in modern practice May seem incredible to those who pin their Faith on the medicinal Efficacy of Active poisons but if these sceptics will take Tho trouble to inquire of those who have tested the corrective and alterative Virtues of the bitters under the circumstances described they the statement to be True.
