The ruddy glow of perfect health--
These are the riches men should seek,

These are, indeed, the truest wealth."

The use of the Plantation Bitters is unparalleled in the history of the world. Over three million bottles are disposed of annually. They are adapted to old and young, male and female. They are agreeable in taste, and always produce an immediate beneficial result. They purify, strengthen, and invigorate, and are exhausted nature's great restorer.

We have watched the course of so many distressed, emaciated, and forlorn dyspeptics, who have taken a new lease of life, and gradually received new vigor, strength, health, and the power of social pleasures—from the effects of the Plantation Bitters—that we are not surprised at the testimonials we receive, although our readers may be. It is a pleasure to do good in the world, but our measure is more than full. We had no conception of the wide-spread suffering which exists, or of the almost infallible cures produced by these Bitters, when we first commenced offering them for sale. We now find every honse has a weak child, an ailing parent, o” a debilitated aged member who needs this tonic.

With Dyspeptics everything goes wrong. Food does not digest; sleep does not refresh; wine does not cheer; smiles do not gladden; music does not charm; nor can any other joy enter the breast of the miserable dyspeptic. You must get rid of it or it will become seated and confirmed, and life will get to be a burden and existence a curse. Plantation Bitters will do away with all this. New life, strength, and energy will take possession of you; the damask will again bloom upon your cheek, and the luster in your eye will again be as bright as in your healthiest, happiest, and most joyous days. Plantation Bitters are sold by all Druggists and Dealers of repute in America.


is now considered by all ladies and gentlemen who understand its action, to be an indispensable toilet luxury. A small quantity of it mingled with the bath, has a marked and delightful effect; while for bathing the head, face, and hands, ITS FRESHENING AND COOLING AROMA cause it to be extensively sought after by those who appreciate refined and luxurious elegance. So potent is its influence in allaying the flushed appearance induced by heat and toil, in causing a healthful glow upon the wan cheek of the feeble, and in adding to beauty a new and fresher bloom, that it has frequently been compared to the enchanted waters of the

Fountain of Perennial Youth.

P. H. DRAKE & CO.,


PRICE REDUCED! From every quarter, friends write us that systematic, determined efforts are making, and with considerable success, to push into circulation journals which sympathized with the Rebellion during its progress, and are now moved and inspired by its fundamental principle that Liberty is rightfully the birthright, not of all men, but of White men, that Blacks have no rights which Whites are bound to respect. A desperate effort is preparing to give ascendency to this Reactionary principle in our Government through the triumph of its champions in the choice of our next President and Congress.

The journals thus crowded into circulation by offering them at cost are neither so large or so varied in their contents, nor produced at anything like the cost of THE TRIBUNE. They are political merely or mainly, while our columns are more generally filled with Foreign Correspondence, Farming Intelligence, Literature, &c., &c.

Nevertheless, in deference to the representations of our friends, and in view of the momentous issues of our Presidential struggle now opening, we have resolved to offer THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE for 1868 to clubs of fifty or more for ONE DOLLAR PER ANNUM: That is to say: for fifty dollars we will send to one address fifty copies of THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE for one year, and any larger number at the same rate. Our prices will be One copy, one year, 52 issues .....

$2 00 Five copies, to names of Subscribers .

9 00 Ten copies, to names of Subscribers

15 00 And one copy extra to the getter up of the club. Additional copies at same price. Twenty copies, to names of Subscribers

27 00 And one copy extra to the getter up of the club. Additional copies at same price. Fifty copies, to names of Subscribers..

55 00 And one copy to getter up of club. Additional copies at same price. Twenty copies, to one address

25 00 And one copy to getter up of club. Additional copies at same price. Fifty copies, to one address.

50 00 And one copy to getter up of club. Additional copies at same price. One hundred copies, to one address

100 00 And one copy Semi-Weekly Tribune to getter up of club. Additional copies at same price.

This offer shall remain open for the entire month of January.

No newspaper so large and complete as THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE, was ever before offered at so low a price. Even when our Currency was at par with gold, no such paper but THE TRIBUNE was offered at that price; and THE TRIBUNE then cost us far less than it now does. But the next election must be carried for Liberty and Loyalty, and we mean to do our part toward effecting that consummation,

We believe that the circulation of half a million copies of THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE during the coming year would be more effectual in influencing and confirming voters than five times their cost spent in the ordinary way just before election. Almost every Republican knows honest Democrats, who need only to be undeceived in order to vote right in the coming contest. S that such are supplied with THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE. It costs bu little, and the result will be permanent.

Mercury is brightest when at an elongation of about 22° 19', which occurs about three days before its greatest elongation east and three days after its greatest elongation west, and is always between the greatest elongation and superior conjunction. Venus is brightest between inferior conjunction and greatest elongation, and when its elongation is about 39° 44'.

Eclipses for 1869,
There will be four Eclipses this year, two of the Sun and two of the Moon, as follows:

I. A partial Eclipse of the Moon, January 27th, in the evening, visible. Size, 0.458 of the diamter, or 5.496 digits, on the northern limb. See the following table for the time.

II. An Annular Eclipse of the Sun, February 11th, invisible in North America. Visible in the southern part of South America, or south of 20° latitude, and in the southern part of Africa.

III. A partial Eclipse of the Moon, July 23d, invisible in America. Visible in Eastern Asia, and Australia. Size, 0.566 of the diameter, or 6.792 digits on the southern limb.

IV. A TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN, August 7th, in the afternoon, visible either as a total, or a large partial Eclipse, throughout Eastern Asia, and all of North America and the West Indies. This will be the most interesting Eclipse that has occurred or will occur in the United States for many years.

The Eclipse first begins on the earth at sunrise in the Pacific Ocean, east of Japan, in-lat. 36° 53.3' N.; long. 138° 37.4' W. of Washington. It becomes total first upon the earth in Siberia, at sunrise, in lat. 52° 41.9 N.; long. 165° 26.4' W. of Washington. The Eclipse is total at noon in Alaska, lat. 61° 46.9 N.; long. 68° 4.6' W. The line of the total Eclipse now runs southeasterly, grazing the coast near Sitka, thence running off into British America, and entering the United States near the origin of Milk River, long. 30° W.; thence through the southwest corner of Minnesota, and diagonally through Iowa, crossing the Mississippi River near Burlington, Iowa; thence through Illinois, just north of Springfield, and crossing the Ohio River near Louisville, Ky. ; thence through the southwest corner of West Virginia, and through North Carolina, just south of Raleigh, and thence to Newbern, and entering the Atlantic just north of Beaufort, N. C., and end. ing at sunset in the ocean, in lat. 31° 15.2' N., and long. 9° 36.6' E.

Along the line described above, the Eclipse will be total, and at all other places in the United States it will be partial. The partial Eclipse ends on the earth at sunset, in lat. 14° 48.9' N.; long. 13° 10' W., being near the city of Guatemala. Along the Atlantic coast, in the United States, the Eclipse ends at about sunset. For the times of the phases of this Eclipse, see the following table.

This Eclipse occurred last in 1851, July 28th, and the total phase was visible in the Arctic regions of America, and in Sweden, Norway, and Russia.
