tive herbs found on tho lower ranges of
the Sierra Nevada mountains of Cai i for
nia, the medicinal properties of which
are extracted-therefrom without the use
of Alcohol. The question is almost
driily asked. What is the cause of tho
unparalleled success of Vinegar Bit
tkus?" Our answer is, that they remove
the cause of disease, and the patient re
covers his health. They are the great
blood purifier and a life-giving principle,
a perfect Renovator and lnvigorator
of the system. Never before in the
history of the world has a medicine been
compounded possessing the remarkable
qualities of VrjtlMJAK Hittkrs in healing the
sick of every disease man is heir to. They

ENGLISH PEINTING PRESSES. IN
In the early days of newspaper print
ing in this country the machinery came
chiefly trout England ; bat when the Yau
kees began to invent, the importation
ceased, and for many years the United
States supplied novel presses to Utitish
and continental publishers. But English
ingenuity appears to have taken a new
start, and has produced printing machines
of euch superior capacity that 'New York
newspaper owners are now buying Cast
presses in London.
We lately witnessed the practical work
ingof two ol the celebrated Waller presses,
at the New York limes establishment in
this city, and mast confess to an agreea
ble surprise at their perfection and extra
ordinary performances. They were built
in London by Mr. Walter, the inventor,
and set up here, under the immediate
supervision of Mr. Gilbert Jones, of the
They are known as perfecting presses,
that is, both sides of the sheet are printed
in passing onee through the press. In
ordinary presses, the sheets are introduced
separately, printed on one side, then pass
ed through again, and printed upon the
other side. This involves much handling,
the employment of cumbersome machines,
and many attendants.
