Philadelphia (Nov. 9) Correspondence New York 
The lecture room ot the old Teunsylyania 
Hospital was the scene of a novel exhibition 
on Saturday morning last. The managers, 
having opened the doors for the ndmi-ssion 
of te.uale medical students to the clinical 
lectures delivi-red bad the pleasure 
of seeing, for the firrt time m ihe history 
of the institulio.i. alK-nt thuty students 
from the Wom.ns Medical College seated 
in the little theatre where the 'vliuica are 
held, fhrio or tour liun(ire«l male stu

the n gular lecture morning. From one of 
the upper benches I observed that the cir- 
cular form of the apartment and thr, rising 
tiers of seats placed tbo woruen m iull 
vie.v as they sat in a body ou one .side. 
Two or three of the managers, members 
of the Society of Fri.nds, w^re seated on 
the little stage availing the en- 
trance of the lecturer. They woro"weighty 
Friends, a sort of moiul Done column,

body of Capt. Cady. "an old and well

Incidcuts iu the Overflow of the Nile. 

A correspondent of the London Times 


On the night ot the 10th of October, . gother with Charles Kennicott. made a per- 
owiuR to the extraordinarily sudden rise in yonal examination of the premises, (in.l un- 

mound-building period, and might contain 
valuable mcmentoej of a past age. A few 
days alterward ho obtained permission ot 
the owner of the farm to make an examina- 
tion of the mounds, and last week hf, to- dre.ssfd in 

the Nile, an inundation occurred, which, 
for the celerity with which it rose, is, per- 
haps, without parallel. On this night I 
happened to be staying in one of the 

t)lack, and wore their broad-briuimed hats, j jooJued villages. I had therefore opportu- 
aud iu the few impatient minnte-i before the ^jj^-^^ which rately fall to the lot of an 
lecture attracted more attention than the garopean of witnessing intimately the im- 

es themselves. Presently the cry of - 

was raised bv a few students. 


'•hat, hat, - . 

and soon a hundred voices took it up. They 
decidedly wished the elderly pentletnen to 
be uncovered; but it is known thatlii^nds 
decline to remove Ihj ir hats in a public as- 
sembly unless their comfort demands it. -

them arose, and was about to pass through 
a do.)r opening from lh.J i^latlorm to an in- 
ner apartm.nt. The shouts were renewed ; 
and, as though patience were no longer a 
virtue, the Manag.'r turned and faced the 
assembly. There wa.'^ nothing brow-beat- 
ing in his look, uothiut.' cLol.-ric m his 
"fisage, nothing fiery in h:s glance. It w»w 
a calm, reproving eyo with which this disci-

was not crowne.l with the success that at- 
tended his ^:reat exemplar. They would 
not smok.> the pipe of peace, but still 
screamed "Hat, hal." The entrance of the 
lecturer at this point diverted utt'-ntion and 
impose.! silence During the first hour 
medical cases were Icctnr.-d upon solely, 
and the interest of tae subject made the so- 
cial iiue8tit»n .piite subordinate. Malans, 
Bun-strok» and droi.>>y. illustrated V)y thoir 
victims, claimed the -'uerahiir. Then fol- 
lowed the surgeon'.-; nour, in which he had 
to do with til.- bruin f a murdered man. 
With skilitul alacrity, the dissection was 
compltt.'.l. showing by the clot of blood, 
and the lack of disease, that death had 
been by violence. The lady students were 
then edifi.'d by a sight of the pineal gland.

recognizing her as his wife until about a 
year ago, when he treated her cruelly and 
sent her to France, afterwards publishing 
notices of her death, Judge Fithian yester- 
day granted the motion made on behalf of 
Joseph Durand to vacate tho order 
of his arrest His Honor holds that 
tho facts set forth by Mrs. Duranil 
.■onstitutes several causes ot action in 
whieli an order of arrest might be granted; 
but the difficulty was that upon her show- 
ing Mr. Durand was her husband, and 
neither hubbaud nor wife could maintain a 
personal action al law aRainst the wther for 
damages lor personal injury from either. - 
The only remedy was a suit for separation, 
or a crimiwal prosecution. Though acconl- 
ing to Mrs. Durand's statement there was 
never a formal ceremony of marriage, eith- 
er religious or civil, yet there was a proiu- 
i-o of marriage, consummriti'd by living 
and cohabiting together as husband and 
wife for sixteen years. This Judge Fithian 
holds to be, according to all the authorities, 
sufficient to constitute the couple husband 
and wife, and both are estopped as against 
each other and all the world from denying 
the relationship. Though Mr. Durand had 
repudiated the contract of marriage, yet 
she could n<»t t*ike him at his word, and 
rescind it on her part, because marital ties 
could not be annulled by mutual consent.

[Prom the San Franclseo Call, Nov. 2.] 
Two young ladies, of genteel app«arance 
richly and yet tastefully dressed, entered 
the health office yesterday afternoon, and 
inquired for the health officer. "He is ab- 
sent at present," answered the urbane 
clerk. Dr. Wilson, to whom they had ad- 
dressed themselves; "but if you wish to 
see him ou busine.'iS connected with the of-

one of tho visitors, "I suppose you are 
aware that cleanlin.'ss is essential to health; 
and, therefore, when I explain, you will no 
doubt appreciate the situation iu which I 
am placed. You see, about three weeki

room in a house in the vicin

dollars for one mouth's rent, iu advance.

know is. can't you have those sheets 
changed? Please send some one to the 
house to make the landlady change them.

effect to stagger the doctor for a moment,

he had been a niPiuber of the Mehodist 
Episcopal Church. 

When General W.iol "vas seized with 
illness ho remarked that tl is woul.l be his 
last sickness. "Oh. no. General," ex- 
claimed one of hi-» utt.>n(lants. "you w-ill 
recover and be with us many years yet." 
"No," Paid the (ieneral, ' this is the last

house after house surging and coming " ' 

down with a dull into the water. i 

Our house being higher and stronger 

than the others, we Went to the top and be- 
gan to construct a raft ther.^, intending to 

launch it from the roof. We were soon 

compelleil to relinquish our task, and were 

scarcely clear when the walls gave way, at 

water level and the whole came .lown. .\ll 

made their way. with the water breast hiRh, 

to the highest spot, fortunately 'till several 

feet above the water level. Hero was .'-oon

but how changed ! the wotucn no longer 

wailing, and the nun no longer diticontent- 

ed. for the last was gone: it was no 

longer possible to save anything, and the 

water was still rising. There was, therefore 

nothing for them but to await their destiny 
which they set about doing with every ap- 
pearance (d" contentment, the village beau- 
ties (never seen except at such a time) even 
seeming, as it seemed to me, to enjoy the 

state ol things as a relief to the monotony 
of their existence. 

It now became necessary to think of our 
raft again, so. after making sevenl excur- 
sions from our oresent comfortable stand- 
ing place to the site of our late residence, 
we ha.l collecte.l sufficient wood for the 
purpose; over this we placed dried corn- 
stalks and bound tho whole together with 
ropfes from tho camel-packs. So quickly 
did the water still rise that our raft, com- 
menced on dry land, was finished floating 
on over a foot of water. We now join.-.l 
the villagers on tiie littl** mound and await- 
etl tho sunrise. .\ c.niHpi.uous tif^nie was 
the dignifi.-d old "sheikh ' 

the Indians" skull, so that tho present 
tribes, no matter how much isolated from 
the white man, present no cases of the an- 
tique Indian head. 

Another evidence of the antiquity of 
these remai 

were foun;l 

remove a large tree which trrew on one of 
the mounds to reach the skeletons. A cross 
section of tree disclosed M7 rings, and 
since botanists claim that the evidences of 
the first 15 years' giowth of old frees has 
been obliterated, it f.)llows that this tree 
was at least 100 years' old. 

The mounds were about two feet above 
the surface of the prairie, were oval iu 
shape, and were aVioat f.uir or five f.'Ct 
wide, and from 10 to 20 feet in b ngth.

Home, when he saw amon^ the children 
playing on the street a boy whom he recog- 
nized at once as MuUer's son. Evans had 
left bis old place sometinle before the 
child was missing, and thought that Muller 
himself might have brought him to the asy- 
Inm. Accordingly time passed on without 
his advising his friend. Ijast. week, how- 
ever, three years after he had first discov 
ered little Henry, he met the father here in 
the city, where both farmers had eonie to 
sell their products. 

Evans desired to know overj thing that 
had happened since his removal from 
Madison county, and when Muller told 
him that his boy was stolen, Evans ex- 
pressed his belief that he knew where the 
child was. They went together to the asy- j 

tips of "Maumelle " from view.

miles below Toledo, Ohio, last week. 
There has been a skiff-ferry running be- 
tween Manhattan and the iron works on 
the opp»-)8ite si.le of the river. \t about 1 
o'clock en Monday afternoon four women, 
three num and a boy started from Manhat- 
tan, across the river. The boat also con- 
tained meat, flour, and groceries. It was 
loaded down to withiu a few inches of tho 
.lipping point, yet it was not deeiue.l un- 
aale. When the boat reached the east chan- 
nel of the river, the waves were running 

The man 
having charge of the boat, .Mr. R, Tennant, 
of Manhattan, Ellen L. Nims and Jean- 
neatte .\llen. of Toletlo, were ilrowned. 
Mr. C. W. Allen, the uncle of Jeannette, 
was stauiling on the shore, about !.■> nxls 
distant, when the boat swamped, an.l Ten- 
nant shouted to him for aissuitance. Jean- 
ne;te clung to Mr. Tennant. and Mr. Allen 
heard him tell her to let go and he could 
save her, but in her fright she would not 
let go her grasp, and the two went down 

a layer of hard blue clay was penetrated, 
an.l the bones were found reposing in abed 
of gravel. The remains were found three 
feet below the surface. 

The tombs ot the "mound buil.lers," as 
they are called are supposed to have been 
constructed by the ancestors of the ancient 
Azte«s, or by the .\ztec8 themselves. The 
remains are usually found arranged in reg- 
ular order, and accompanied with tools, 
wpa{)ons, and implements, by which their 
great antiquity is inferred and, to soni. ex- 
tent, measured. The mounds discov. vd 
last week by Prof Stimson contained no 
tools or weapons, or atleivst nane have yet 
been discovered, altt.ough, as the research- 
es have not terminated, it is iin|K>i-.sible 
that these objects may yet be found. The 
of the village, as remains were apparently thrown together 
promiscuoualy. as if the rites of sepulture 
had been hurrieil -perhaps at the of 
of a battle. ' 

From all the circumstances, it is believed 
that when the beings were buried there, 
the place was the margin of the lake, and 
thus the phenomena are closely connected 
with another interesting series of questions 
relating to the lake and its physical . ondi- 
tion and boundaries bef.3ro the shores were 
discovered by Europeans. i 

On yesterday, another mound was dis- ; 
covered, circular in its form, and larger 
and higher than the others. It has not yet , 
been investigated so as to determine what 
is the character of its contents. 

The subject will belaid before the Acade- 
my of Sciences this evening, when, it may 
be expected, some new light will be thrown 
upon the matter. i

Notes for December^ aildrefMed to the Feeble 
and Debilitated. 

This is a trying eeaaon for invalids, indeed for all who 
are not bleaaed with robust constitutions and iron framoa. 

Cold has come npon ns suddenly, sealing np the op«a 
pores, and traiing in a« it were, any teoda of ilinam that 
may have been lurking in the system, but which resuia- 
ed nndevelopod so long as the waate matter of the bedy 
and all acid and nnwholosome humors were freely die- 
charged by evaporation from the surface and tbroagfi 
tho bowels. 

A tonic, aperient and alterative medicine is now 
needed to Invigorate the vital powers, dopraaaed by » 
low temperature to stimulate and purify the secrettaia, 
and to fit the body to endure, without InoonvaoieBoc, 
pain or danger, the sadden cUmatic change wliieh 
luhers in the winter. 

The only preparation which will fully meet this almnrt 
oaivenal need, and which will thoronghly and seMy 
perform the important work, is the leading tonio and 
alterative of the age. HOSTinTFR'.S STOMACH 

This popular specific improves the appetite, tnvigo 
rates the digestive organs, regulates the flow of bOe 
enriches the blood, calms the nerves, relierea con etlya - 
tion, ptxnBotes superficial circulation and eraporatioa, 
and being composed slowly of wholcv>roe vegetafela 
elements, with a pure stimnlant as their diffuai v« vehicle, 
may be taken by the weakeot without fear. Tba flaeee 
is agreeable, for althuogh the BITTEILS are a potent 
medicine, they contain no nauseating element.

frightened by the arrival of the stage, broke 
away and ran. Winahip caught them, and Kin-

amounted to only a few cents.

k'TrntU stranger than Fiction." 

In Siiu Franciflco, ou the north side ol 
Folsom street, overlookius; Mission Bay, 
stzindH a palatial residence. 

The interior of this house is even wore 
beautiinl thaa its exterior, every apartment 
being in its way a gem of magnificence and 

The library especially realizes the most 
p€Tfe«*t ideal of an elegant and cultured 

And yet, at the moment we look in upon 
him oue afttmoou, as he occu- 
pied his library— the proprietor of all this 
wealth appeared of all men the most mis- 

Ho wfis Mr. Morton Preble, for many 
years a Itadiug banker of San Francisco. 

It was in that the broad bay-window 
at the ^^>^lth end of tho room had been op- 
ened. Rivinp; iugreHH to the sunshine and 
fmRTauce of rare flowers- in vain that the 
walls were lined -jriih richly carved book 
cases, aud paintiui^s-in vain that the 
conches and luxurious chairs had been 
gathered around him. 
He wiv» wretcht'd. 

He lay on a sofa, in the depths of the 
bay-window, the wnck of a once powerful 
man. His tigure a\>s thiu and gannt: his 
face white as marbie; his eyes having an 
expression o1 woful apprehension ; of har- 
rowing anxietv. of dreadful expectancy. 

It was evident at a glance that no merely 
physical ailment made him what he was. 

Bv what withering secret, by what des- 
troViii'' uftliction, had he been thus agon- 
ized V thus haunted ? thus haunted ? he so 
noblo and gooil ! he so wealthy and distin- 
ffuishcd ! , . , • 

As he moved restlessly upon his luxuri 
ons cushions the pretty clock on the man- 
tel-piece struck five, every stroke seeming 
to fall like a hammer upon the heart of the 
nervous invalid. He aroused himself. 
Btruggling ft-ebly to a sitting postnre. 

'•Ul will this fatal day never, never pass.-' 
he murmured : "nor bring us relief Y' 

Koli--ing with a nervous start, that he alone, ho touched a boll upon a table 
before him, and called: 

"Helen, Helen! where are yon' 
r.elore the echoes of hiu voice had died 
out, a step was heard, and his wife entered 
his prisouce. . ,, » 

"I left you only for a niomcut. Morton, 
she said atlvancing to the bankers side. 
"Yon were dozing I think. I wished to 
send for the doctor. 

.She was a beautiful woman, of some six 
and thirty years, graceful, with broad 
white brows, and loving eyes, in which 
the brightness and sweetness of a sun- 
shin v nature were still perceptible, under 
„ t-riif no less poignant than thtt evinced 
by her hnsLaiid. 

""The doctor?" he echoed, halt n- 
proachfuUy. , , 

"Yes, dear." she said in a calm and 
cheerful voice, as she drew a chair to the 
side of the sofa, and sat down, stroking 
the corrugftteti forehead of the invalid with 
a magnetic touch. "He will be here im- 
mediately. Your las* nervous crisis alarm- 
ed me. Y'on may become seriously ill." 

Mr. Preble bestowed an aflfectionate 
look upon his wife, but said despondingly: 
'"The doctor ! II'" cannot 'minister to a 
mind deceased !' Oh, if these long hours 
would only pass ! If I only knew what the 
dav has yet in store for us !" 

"Lookup, Morton." enjoined Mrs. Pre 
ble, with a reverently trustful glance up- 
ward through the open window at the blue 
skv, and as if looking beyond the azure 
clouds therein. "Let us appeal from the 
injustice and wickedness ol earth to tne 
pooduesfl and mercy of Heaven !" 
" The banker gave alow, sobbing sigh. 

"I cannot look up, Helen," he answered, 
with a passionate tremor in his voice - 
"only down. down, at the grave that is 
oneniucc before me?" 

^"Look up, Morton, always took up! she 
a^ain enjoined upon the invahd. "During 
ail these fourteen years of agony I have not 
once doubted either the goodness or the 
justice of Heaven. 'Blessed are they that 
mourn, for they shall be comforted. I be- 
lieve that we shall yet rejoice more keenly 
th m wo have mourned, and that we shall 
come to a t^lorions day beyond all this long 
nif'ht of sorrow!' ,,.,,, ,. 

The face of Uio invalid lighted up with 
an answering glow, and he murnmred : 

"Oiorions f.nth ! My wife, you are indeed 
ft bl. ssed comforter ! Perhaps yen ar^ ngLt 

after all ! ' , , , . ,, . 

A knock resounded on a side door at this 
luncture. and the next moment Dr. Hutton. [ 
the family physician, for whom Mrs. Pre- 1 
ble had sfent. entered the room. I 

Ho was an old man, portly in figure, with | 
white hair and beard, but with a fresh and , 
ruddy complexion, a pair of shrewd blue 
eves and with an exuberant boyishness of 
manner that sat well upon him. He had a 
kin.l h^art and a clear head He approach- 1 
ed the «f.fa, after Kroeting the husband and 
wilo and lifted the thin, restless hand ol 
the invalid, feeling his pulse. 

"Onitea high fever." he said, after a 
brief pause. "Worrryin? again, eh Mr. 
Preble '^ Yon are wearing yourself out. 
Medicine will do you no good so long aj

"Nor did it us, at first," said Mr. Preble. 
"Then that name and that date, with the 
demon laugh connecting them, set us to 
thinking. A whole year we agonized over 
the dreadful problem, and then we received 
another message, which you shall see." 

He thrust a second slip of paper, identi- 
cal in shape and appearance with the first, 
befoie the gaze of Dr. Hutton. who read it

The physician started, as if electrified. 

"Ah! this is something definite— some- 
thing decisive." he muttered. "It con- 
vinced you that your daughter was still 

'•Yes, doctor," said Mr. Preble, "and 
every anniversary of that day has brought 
us some message. The disappearance ol 
the child, mysterious as it is, does not 
seem to me half so strange as that the vil-

stranger than fiction !" 

Mr!». Preble drew from her huabanl s 
breast pooket his note-book, opened it to 
the proper page; and presented it to the 
physician. , . , 

Dr. Hutton adjusted his spectacles, 
glanced over the page, and then slowly 
read tho group of entries aloud. The en-

also arising.

•Ye.-*, it's another of those terrible days."

down, .loctor. and I will tell, you 
story I can't think of an> to-day 
and'aiu almost wild with apprehension and 
anxiety. Sit down. . 

Dr. Hutton drew up a ohair and 
himself, his {\ce expresping the double 
itudo of a friend and physician, 

••You knew iw fourteen years ago, 
tor." said Mr. Preble. "We lived 
where we do how, in a cottage on the site 
of this great mansion. There were but 
taree of us -Helen and I.and our three-year 
old Tessie. -Vnd U wa.N lunrteen years ago 
to-day that our little Jessie was stolen from 


"I remember it," said the doctor, softly. 
"Y'et she miqht not have been lost, Mr. 
Preble "^ She went out to play in the gar- 
den if I remember rightly, and was never 
seen by you again. She might have stray- 

•So "we thought for a whole year, doe- , 
tor. • intermpted the banker. "We never 
dreamed that she had been stolen. W e 
searched everywhere for her. and offered 
immense rew.aids for her recovery. 1 em- 
ployed detectives, but all to no purpose. 
When our little .Jessie ran down the steps 
into that flower-ftardeu," and he pointed to 
the front of the house, "as if the earth had 
opened aud swiUlowed her up. we never 
saw herauain." . . , j 

"She must have found the gate open and 
wandered out," suggesUd Dr. Hutton. 
"She might have strolled down to the 
waters and been drowned." | 

The banker fixed his burning eyes open | 
the phvsician's face, and whispered: , 

"I said we never saw the poor chila 
a^^in. I did not say we had not heard of 
li^r. She was lost on the 0th of August, 
IS", t For a year we tnousht her dead. 
But on the" anniversary of our loss we 
rec-ived a written message concerning 
her ' 

"A imwMC' •" ^""^ ^'- Hutton, start-

a drawer in the table, and held it np to 
the view of the phjsician, who read as fol- 

^"Angfrt 0. IW. Jrsse. »«, ha ' J^^se.- 

Dr Hutton looked, with a puzzled air. 
from the scrap of pap^T, which he 
, ver and over, to the conntcLance 

••AngUMt 9, 181S, 

And the next — 

•Angnat 9, 18J9, 

And the next—

And the next— „ ^ ,„

And the next— . . , . , ,„ 

••Auguat 9, 1867. My reward is at hand ! 

And what .shall we get to-day '! 

The physician looked up and fixed his 
thoughtful gaze upon the bereaved hus- 
band and wife. 

"How did these messages come to yon t 
he demanded. 

"Invariably by post," rephed Mr. 
ble. "Usually to the hou*e. but sometimes 

"And you have never seen their author.' 


'•The last of them is dated. I see. a year 

ago to day." 

"Y'es, yes." faltered the banker, "and the 
time has come for another message, 
is the 9th of August, 1868." 

'•I see," said Dr. Hutton. "And this 
the secret of your terrible excitement ! You 
are expccling'to receive to-day another of strange messages." 

Theri was a brief silence. Mrs. Preble s 
hand fluttered in its, and her face 
grww VL-rv pale. The banker breathed 
gaspingly.' The physician regarded them 
both in friendly sympathy. 

"We shall hear of her again to-day. 
said Mr. Preble; "and what will the mess- 
age be ?" 

The mother averted her face. Her brave 
heart faltered as the question echoed in 

I her soul. 

"The writer of these letters is unques- 
tionably the abductor of your child !" said 
Dr. Hutton. "Have you any Fuspieiou as 
to his identity ?" 

"Not the slightest," said Mr. Preble. 
"We have puzzled over the problem for 
many vears, but we cannot guess who he is. i 

"Think."said the doctor. "Have you 
no enemy ? I do not mean people with I 
whom you are not friendly- every stirring 
man has plenty of these- but a downright 
enemy ! Is there no man whom you knew 
in the East who hated you ? No one against 
whom you were called upon to testify no 
one whom you possibly injured ?" 

The banker shook his head. He had 
isked himself all these questions repeat- 

"I have no such an enemy, doctor," he 
answered, with sincerity of voice and man- 

"And Mrs. Preble V" suggested the doc- 
tor, turning to her. "Have you no reject- 
ed suitor who might be revengeful enough 
to desolate your home?" 

"No," said the lady. "I was married 
early. Morton was my first lover." 

"This IS strange— verj- strange ! ' mutter- 
ed the doctor. "You are not conscious ol | 
having an enemy in the world, and yet you 
have an enemv— a hidden foe— a tioud ir. 
human form— who is working out igaiast 
you a fearful hatred ! And you have not i 
the slightest suspicion as to whom he is?" 
'•Not the slightest." declared the banker. | 
"Not the slightest," echoed Mrs. Preble. 
"My husband had a step-brother who j 
might have been capable of this infamy- j 
but ho is dead !" 

"The handwriting is not familiar ?" 
"No. It is merely a rude scrawl, as jou 
see," said the banker. "It sujjgests noth- 
ing—except that it is evidently disguised 1' 
Again there was a profound silence. ^^ i 
"Our child is seventeen years old now," I 
at length murmured Mrs. Preble, her voice 
trembUng. "She is in tiie threshold of 
womanhood. No doubt. d«ring all these 
years, she has yearned for us, wherever she 
may be, as we have yearned for her!" 

•'But where is she?" asked the physician 
— and now his voice was broken by his 
ler. ".Sit ^ sympathy with the agonized parents, 
the wholt. ..y^j^ere can she be." 

"Heaven only knows" answered the 
mother. "Perhaps in San Francisco— per- 
haps in some rude hut in the interior, with 
some obscure farmer, and under a name 
that is not hers! I think her abductor 
would have carried her to some lonely re- 
gion of the interior, amonc the valleys and 
mountains. Yet I never see a young girl 
in the streets without turning to look at her. 
I never hear a girlish voice without listen- 
iDg eagerly, half fancying that it may prove 
the voice of my lost .Jessie!" 

"Oh. pitying heaven !" sighed Dr. Hut- i 
ton. d ishing a flood of tears from his 
eyes; 'will this long agony never be over? ' 

"We hope so, and even believe so," an- \ 
swered Mrs. Preble, with the firmness of | 
an unfaltering trust in Grod's mercy. "The \ 
last message we received from our ene- j 
my seems tc point to some kind of a ^ 

'True." assented Dr. Hutton, looking at 
the message in question. "It is unlike the 
others. It says that his 'reward is at hand.' 
He means either that he intends to marry ; 
yonr daughter, or that he intends to de- 
mand money of you for bringing her back 
— or both." ; 

"We shall soon know," said Mrs. Preble. , 
I with forced ealmnnss. "To-day we shall : 
have anoth«r message, no doubt. What j 
will it be?" 

The banker turned restlessly on his sofa, 
; and his face grew even paler. j 

! "Whatever it is. let it come," he mur- 
I mured. "Anything can be borne better 
' than this suspense. Let it come. ' 

.\3 if his impatient words had precipi- 
tated a crisis, a step was heard on the walk 
at this moment, and a ring at the front dooi 

"Another message !" breithed the bank- 

A. servant soon entejed. bearing a letter, 
which he extended to Mr. Preble: 
"The be-irer is ii the hall." 
With an eager, anxious gaze, the banker 
glanced at the superscription of the mis- 

It is from him," he faltered. 
He tore the envelope open. 
It contained a slip of paper, of well- 
known shape and appearance, upon which 
was scrawled a single line, in an equally 
well-known haad-writing. which the 
banker exhibited to his wife an i the phy- 

aoain reverting to the message. ' 
he here at six o'clock, and see ! it is six al- 
ready ! " , 

Even as he spoke, the clock on the man- 
tel-piece commenced striking the appointed 
hour, and at that instant heavy footsteps 
resounded in the haU. approaching the li- 
brary. , . . 
"It is he!" cried the doctor, also anting. 
As the last stroke of the hour resounded, 
the door leading from the hall again opened. 
Ou • long and horrified glance cast the 
bankir and his wife in that direction, and 
then she fell heavily to the floor.

Messrs. JOSEPH Buknktt 4 Co. :— 

Dear Sim,- I have derive(L)nucli benefit from the use 
of your Cocoaine, I'welveTears ago I had the tj-phus 
fever: after my recovery I found myself troubled with 
an irritation of the scalp. 

I purchased a bottle of the Cocoaine only for the pur- 
pose of a hair dressing, but to my surprise, it has en- 
tirely removed the irritation of so long standing. I liave 
recommended it to several of my friends, who were 
atllictcd in the same way, and it has wholly eradicated 
the disease. JOSEPH HILL, Jk. 

ped my wife'B'hair from coming out and increased its

My daughter has lieen afflicted with neuralgia in her 
head for three years, bhe has used during that tunc 
many powerful applications. These, with the ""tenso 
heat caused by ttio pains, burned her hair so badly tuai 
in October, 1*>1, it all came off. , 

She was induced to try your Cocoaine, and the result 
was astonishing. She had not used half the content-s ot 
a bottle before her lieati was covered with hne young 
hair. In four months the hair has grown several inches 
in length, verj- thick, soft, and lino, and of a darker 
color than formerly. With respect, ^ i^nv

For thirty years I Lave made my home 
on Uio plaius and among the fastnesH of 
the Rocky ilonntaiuH, also spending a por- 
tion of my time in the (ioldeu SUte of the 
Pacific In ISIO I started with a party to 
croBs tiie plains in hopes of making my 
fortune a-diRRinK for the hhininK dust that 
pM)ple said was to be had tor picking up. 
There waH a dozen of ns, all first rate, jo- 
vial feliowB. all of them having had m.)re 
or less experience in roughing it out on the 
prairies of the Wtst. 

We had no womeukind among ua to hin- 
der our progregs, so we got over the ground 
pretty la«l, auil reached Salt Lake several 
days before we hud expected when we sst 
out. We were all well and hearty, and m 
tbe best spirit; aud after spending three 
days with the Saints end getting a view of 
some of the lailies claimed by Bngham 
and his Elders, who didn't seem at all 
averse to our c inpany, we turned our backs 
upon them and set our faces toward the 
Bottiug sun. 

The plains were no longer before us ; but 
a country filled with ileep valleys aud 
steep rugged mountains. I 
after entering upon this region, we 
camped for the kight on the bank of a wild 
torrent that was swollen almost to the size 
of a river by tl;e recent rains. It had b..'eu 
with great diffioulty we got safely 
across; and although it wa.s but the mid- 
dle ot the afternoou, we resolved not to 
go any further that night as one of the 
party complained of not teeling well. 

Alter the arrantjeiueuts for iram^-ing had 
been well nigh completed, aud as the suu 
was still two hours high, and not feeling 
very much fatp^'ued, I threw my ritle over 
my shoulder, and told my comrades that I 
was goinipTb take an hour's tramp up the 
stream where a dark gorge opened among 
the mountains in hopes to get a chance 
shot at Honiethiug that would serve to help 
us make up a supper. Noue ot the boys , 
offered to at-compauy me; .uid alter receiv- 
iae a e;intioi* not to wauder too fur, and to 
return to camp before nightfall, I set out. 

The way was rwugher than I expected, 
and more than o»ce I had half a miud to 
turn back; but I persevered, and tor half 
an hour picked my way np the rough alley, 
which was hemiuAl iu by rugged moun- 
tains, or. rather i.y high chftH, that, owing 
to some eonvul-^iuu of nature, had cast 
huge masses, from their sides, almost block- 
ing np the narrow space that existed be- 
tween their base aud the banks of the ra- 
vine, iiud iu some places partially tilling , 
the bed of the stream, over which tho 
water rushed with a noise almost deafen- 

I had lost sight of the smoke that arose 
firom our camp-tire, owing to the course cf 
the stream that conformed itself to th'i val- 
ley: aud all this time I had steu nothiag 
that I would deign to waste powder and 
bullet upon, so that I began to think I 
should be obliged to return to the camp aa. 
empty handed tis when I .set out 

I toiled on, perhaps tifty yards farther, 
clambering over ti e jagged rock>i that 
blocked np my way, and at last, discour- 
aged at my want vl success, I was on the 
point of turning Lack, when I espied but a 
abort distance before me, close to where a 
few bushes grew out of the cliff, a small 
creature, though from the glimpse I got of 
It I couiil not dutiugui.>.h what it was. Glad 
of the chance for a shot, I serambledalonp 
over the rocks to a position that I coveted; 
but before it v.iis rtHch» d, the creature, 
whatever it was, had disappeared, and no 
traces of it could I tind alter searching for 
it several minutes where I was sure that I 
had seen it 

Disappointed. I was on the point of turn- 
ing back, when a loud clap of thunder re- 
sounded through tht; sky and the next mo- 
ment large drops of rain began to fall. 
Startled at the sudden approach of the 
storm that I had be« u all unmindful of, I 
glancevl upward and saw that a dense black 
cloud was rising above the cliffs, and had 

raging of the tempest without, the fury of 
which I do not remember ever having seen 

Half an hour pas.ied; and the Storm, iu- 

I stead of abating, seemed to increase in 

intensity, aud I began to think that I 

should have to pass the night where I was. 

I knew, by the thundering of the water in 

the ravine", that it was fast rising. From 

where I sat indeed, I could see the tor- 

rauts in miniature cataracts ilashing down 

1 the face of the clifts on the opposite side of 

' the stream. It seemed, I fan.^ied, almost 

as the tiood must have appeared at its 


I had begun to feci secure in my place 
of refuge, and the fact of the huge bould. r 
being above my head no longer troubled 
me, when suddenly, to my unspeakable ter- 
ror, I saw a huge rock washed from its 
sandy base and go plunging down into the 
I ravine. Horrors, what if the one before 
! me should f:vll and block me up ? I seized 
my rifle and sprang toward th3 outlet. The 
storm was preferable to my place of shelter. 
"Heaven have mercy !" I cried, as I felt 
, the movements of the cliff above me; and 
' then, to my horror and despair, the great 
} boulder, loosened by the torrents of rain, 
slipped from its resting place, and ere I 
I could escapo hemmed me in in perfect dark- 
i ness. 
I 1 was entombed alive ! 

The horror of my situation came upon 

j me with such fi)rce that I did what I never 

did before nor since — I fainted away. 

I How long I remained insensible I know 

I not; but wiien at last I came to myself 

' again 1 thought it was a terrible dream. 

But the iUu-iion soon wore off. and the stern 

reality was before me, and I began calmly 

' to think of what chance I had of escaping 

from my living tomb. 

Very little iudei d was there to hope in 
; the prospect before me. No prison bars 
I were as strong as those that held me back 
from the outer world, that 1 had never 
, prized so highly as I now began to do. — 
There seemed no possible hope; for man, 
with his unaided strength, could never 
move the huge rock that sealed up the en- 
trance to my sepulchre. 

A faint ray ot light came in one side of 
my prison door, and through the crevice 
came the sound of tho roaring water, 
swollen to doubte its usual volume, down in 
the bed of the ravine. The crevice would 
give me air, and would tell me when night 
would come and go, so long as life miRht 
remain to me. My companions would 
doubtless search long for me, and could I 
not make myself heard should they chance 
to pass near? This gave m« a ray of hope 
that I hugged to my heart as drowning 
men will, they say, clutch at stiaws; but 
my heart again sank within me as the roar 
of the torrent filled my ears. No human 
voice could be heard above the terrible 
sound, which was increasing iu violence 
every moment 

I threw myself on the bottom of the cave 
and gave up to the despair that lay ujion 
me, crushing me, as it were, into the 
earth. Many were the hours of danger 
' that I had passed through; times wLea it 
, seemed that there was no possible chance 
of escape; yet hope had never completely 
forsaken me as it had now. 

The ray of light faded away and all was 
darkness" Night had come to me iu my 
tomb, as dark and terrible as though I was 
surrounded by scores of mouldering dead. 
As time must seem to the spirits of the 
lost, so that night seemed to me. Morning 
came at last and again a little hope return- 
ed with the my of light that fouud its way 
in to me. as if to say that I was not entire- 
ly cut off from the outer world. 

The roar ot the torrent still sounded in 
my ears, but not so loud as it had done. 
If my comrades should ccme up to neek 
me, it might be possible that I might make 
myself heard. But how was I to know 
when they had come';- Try as I would, I 
could not gain a position where I could get 
a glimpse of the world without. My only 
chance was to call aloud at the top of mj 
voice, and, hour after hour, I did so, until 
I was so hoarse that I couhi hardly speak ; 
but I heard nothing come from without to 
repay me for the exertion I had ma.l.'. The 
forenoon wore away, and 1 began to feel the 
pangs ol hunger and thirst, and ti.en, and 
not till then, did I fuljy realize all tho hor- 
rors «}f my situation. My despair was ter- 
rible, an I, in my agony, I threw myself on 
my face upon the floor of tho caveru, and,

"Carleton" writes to the Boston Journal 

tbe following interesting facts relative to 

the iron-miners of the Northwest: 


The miners are a hardy set of men, 
rough, uncouth, but enterprisiug, Ihey 
live in small cottages, make excellent 
wages, drink whisky, and rear large fami- 
lies. How happens it that in all new com- 
munities there is such an abundance ol 
children'? Nearly evi ry woman has a child 
in her arms. We cannot expect to see the 
refinemeuts and luxuries of old communi- 
ties in a country where the stumps have 
not yet been cleared from the streets, and 
where the spruces aud hemlockM are still 
waving about the little cottages of the set-

Through the guilty the innocent must 
suffer, and never was the fact more dis- 
tressingly illustrated than in the late ar- 
rest of aNew York counterfeiter 

One of the best engravers in the coun- 
try', if not in the world, was arrested at his 
oflice, where everything went to prove and 
where he unreservedly confessitl his guilt 
- too compltttely broken, amazed and con- 
fused to atteiupt a denial. He was a fine, 
gentlemanly looking man, though of late 
somewhat dissipated, owing, probably, to 
the wretched bu.siness iu whi.jh he was 
employed. He had woikod for Tiffany A: 
Co., and for the American Bank Note Co.. 
as a skillful, honest engraver; md so, up 
to within two weeks ago, thought his fami- 
ly. Notwithstanding his dissipation, aLd 
the great crime of which he is surely guil- 
ty, he has been a kind father aud husband, 
aud never carried his sin into his home ; 
neither is he what may be termed a bad 
man, if we can reconcdo these incongrui- 
ties with the fact that he was arrested for 
the worst crime that an individual can 
practice against the government

An enterprising town-builder purchased 
this swamp for a song, and has laid out a 
city. Here it is -dwelling houses aud 
storesstindiug on posts tlriven into the mud, 
or resting on stumps. He has filled up 
streets with debris from the mints. Frog 
croak beneath the dwellings, or sun them- 
selves on the sills. The town is not thus 
growing from the swamp because there is 
no solid land, but because solid upland has 
eihaustless beds of iron ore beneath, too 
valuable to be devoted to building pur- 


The ore is generally found in hills rang- 
ing from one hundred to five hundred feet 
above the level of the surrounding conn- 
try. The elevations can hardly be called 
mountains; they are knolls rather, and 
each one is composed of ore. They are 
iron warts on Dame Nature's face. They are 
partially covered with earth, the slow form- 
ing deposits of the alluvial period. You 
would not think, to look at the surface, that 
the dense forests crowning these hills rested 
on an iron foundation, but Prof, Pierce

After his arrest, iu company with the 
chief of the secret servii^e and two subor- 
dinates, he was escorted to bin home a 
ruined, disgraced, guilty wretch, and the 
scene that ensued was indeed heartrending. 
Accustomed as were the officers to painful 
family griets brought abcut by Lbeir sum- 
mary arrests, the usual sequencse of home 
innocence and tears was nothing new or 
unlooked for; but this family's despair 
touched even them, and they did not care 
to meet the gaze of the affrighted Wt man 
who met them at the door. 

A beautiful daughter of IG lifted a white 
horrified lace beyond her mother's; anoth- 
er of 10 shrank p.gainst the wall ; a bright, 
intelligent boy of G stood transfiiced in won- 
der, and a smiling infant confronted the 
miserable father aud husband. 

The officers needed not to search tbe 
house for traces of his evil deeds. Wife 
and children were innocent, and the long- 
practiced officers knew it at a gleuce. 

The unhappy wife sank into a chair. 
Clasping her shaking hand-s 0)ie over the 
other, aud swaying to and fro, she moaned

Why can't I die now?" Her wet face was 
livid beneath its tears, and s drunk and 


Tbe Propcnalti' to Steal Inlkereitt. 

We have been made acquainted with one 
of tbe most singular cases of kleptomania 
of which we have ever heard, the person 
subject to the strange malady being the 
wife of a well-known wealthy business man. 
The tendency for shop-lifting, and other 
stealing, was first noticed about a year 
since, when she was detected in secreting 
under the ample folds of her velvet cloak a 
bolt of costly silk, Tbe goods were re- 
turned, and an agreement to not prosecute 
on her promising to refrain from any act of 
tbe kind iu tbe future. For some time she 
kept her promise, but, after awhile the old 
habit came back and she was caught in tbe 
act of stealing a fine ring in one of our 
jewelry stores. Owing to the respect for 
tbe husband and tbe fact that he settled for 
tbe jewelry the matter was dropped, as has 
been the case iu more than a dozen in- 
stances since. 

Another phase of her staaMng is to ac> 
cept iuvitations to parties, where she will 
watch her opportunity and take furs, 
cloaks, bonnets, or anything else in her 

Her hnsband has time and time again re- 
monstrated with her for her conduct, pic- 
turing tbe certain rain to come, all of 
which she acknowledges, but also claiming 
that she can not withstand the tempta- 

There is not tbe least cause for her light- 
fingered propensities, as her own jewelry 
and clothing is of a great deal more costly 
character than any she has stolen, and one 
of the singular features of her case is that 
she has never been known to wear any ar- 
ticle that she has stolen. The husband 
has consulted the family physician, one of 
the most eminent in the city, who gives 
tbe opinion that the strange conduct is the 
result of disea <e and not to be attributed 
to a natural willingness to steal. — Cincin-

pure anhydrous sesqui-oxide. If your read- 
ers know what that means, I shall rejoice 
that they are well-informed, but it is Greek i 
to mo This ore yields about 65 per cent, 
of pure iron. It is sometimes found in con- 
junction with red quartz, and is then known 
as mixed ore. 

The next in importance is a soft hematite, 
resembling the ores of Pennsylvania and 
Connecticut. It is quite porous, is more 
easily' reduced than any other variety, and 
yields about 50 per cent, of pure iron. 

The magnetic ores are found further west 
than those already described. Tbe Micbi-

mines are all magnetic. Sometimes the 
magnetic and specular lie side by side, and 
it is a puzzle to geologists and chemists 
alike to account for the difference hetwoon

The Bread Frait Tree. 
Did you ever hear of a tree bearing glue 
and towels and cloth and tinder and bread? 
There is jast such a wonder. It is fonnd 
on the Pacific Islands and is called the 
Bread Fruit tree. 

It is about forty feet in height, or as 
high as an ordinary three story dwelling 
house; its trunk grows to be nearly one 
foot in diameter or thickness, and the 
branches come out straight from the tree, 
like dozens of outstretched arms, long at i 
first, but getting shorter and shorter as 
they near the top. These are furnished | 
with beautiful dark-green leaves, nearly | 
two feet long, and deeply gashed at the I

is the fruit growing like apples, on short 
stems, but larger and with a thick, tough 
yellow rind. 

This fruit is like bread, or, as some de- 
scribe it, like penny-rolls; and as it is in 
season during eight months of tbe year; 
tbe natives during that time have no other 
kind of bread. They gather it while it is 
green, as soon as it attains its full size, and

Then turn- 1 off it« outer blackened crust they come to 
the loaf, which has no bard seed or stone 
inside, but is very likely pure, white 
wheatcu bread. The only trouble is, they 
must eat it soon after tbe baking, because, 
in a tew hours, it grows harsh and choky, 
and loses its pleat^aut taste. But just 
think how pleaf<ant it must be to be able 
during eight months of tbe year, to gather 
one's loaves from the tree already for bak- 
ing ! 

As for the glue, that is a kind of sticky 
fluid, which oozes from the trunk, and is 
found very useful for many purposes, tbe 
leaves make excellent towels for the use of 
tbe natives who care to wash their hands 
and faces; aud from the inner bark a kind 
ot coarse cloth is made which makes capi- 
tal every day garments. Beside.^ this, tbe 
dried blossoms are used for tinder,in light- 
ing fires, aud the wood of the tree is in 
great demand for building huts aud boats 
aud rough bridges.

such might be the case with this one. 

Faint as this hope wa.s. I clung to it. and 
went to work with a will. The rocks I 
found that I could not move easily, aud the 
sand I scraped away with my hands, and 
soon I had a plat^e large enough to force 
my way through. Encouraged by this, I 
did so and after crawling along for some 
fifteen or twenty feet I found myself in a 
large apartment of a height that would 
ndmit of standing erect Another passage 
led off to the right from this, and 
I at once entered it, although it 
was so dark that I bad to feel my way 
along. Tho way was crooked, turning 
sharp angles and long curves, and I could 
form no idea of the direction iu which I 
was going. It seemed almost interminable; 
but at last to my great joy, I saw light, 
ahead, and in a few moments I stood in tbe 
bright sunshine that I had never expected 
to have seen again.

This one tact settles the questiou of the 
I future of this region. It is to become one 
I of the great iron marts of the world. It is 
I to give, by and by, the supremacy to 
! America in the production of steel. 

It is already settled, by trial, that every 
; grade of iron now in use, in' arts and mau-

•r*t cnowTU or 


J1050P0tT M 

The pecuniary intereit of oar people in this 
nahject, great tw* it is, is unfortunately not their 
only nor thoir greatest interest. Tlic people of 
Wij<ounsin are a portion of the people of the i 
United States, and as suoh are jointly interested ; 
in and jointly responsible with the people of ■ 
•ther States, for the perpetuity of our froo insti- 
ution^. I 

It was for many years Seliered by car wisest \ 
ind purest statesmen, that our iustiturious were \ 
,n danger from slavery. Hut It is my hone»t be- 
lief, that they are to-day in far greater danger ! 
from the combinations of capital, the oon.«olida- ' 
tion of monopolies — the great trinity of power, 
railroad, express and telegraph companies, which 
are struggling to control the destinies of this 
country than they ever were from slavery. 
Slavery wa.« spread over a va.«t territory but 
eould only act through political ajeucies so that 
it* plottin^s and proceedings were seen of all 
men. It wa« a sin .to damning, nu I a curse so 
heavy, that the mural sentiments of the people 
and the syinjiftthies of the world were ngniustit: 
altogether and under all cireum-'tau -cs : ia 
ileia.l and in general. It was cirmmsoribed 
by geographic limits, and the niitneri majori- 
ty of our people who watched it with je:i!ousy 
and hatred, always had the jtuctr. if not thof'eA- 
i.i<a/ fiuiliutioHnl riyht, to suppress it at any 
timo; aud it was always certain that whenever 
it should ..peiily assail the exl-lence of tree in*ti- 
tutions. the people, who believe that constitu- 
tion.' are ma le ior men and not men are 
ma do for constituiions, would find a way '.o put 
it down. And "o it finally irai e.vtin^iiiih- 
cd. (.applause.) 

Uui railf'ad, expre« and to'eg:n«]>h companies, 
untcr proper regulations and with:u whole.'ouie 
re«tri(tirtu<, are not only harmless but absolutely 
a necessity of our modern eivili/.»fion. They 
mav proudly ancl truthfully j^int to the immense 
service they have rendore.l to the people in facil- | 
itatiiij? e'lmmerce an«l brin;;'ng the comforts of ! 
life to every man's door. Tno d.ingers to the 
public arise not from thr u«e, but fi dui the abuH' 
of the powers which have l>e»n gianted to these 1 
corporations. Lnmised evil is aiwiiys coudeiiiii- 
ed and aroided. and i"« therefore harmless. It is j 
evil that comes in »h>uiuj mi n-nt, with sedu.'tive 1 
manner, with much that is really pleasant and | 
g . > I, that wins its way into fho puni lie of pop- 1 
ular appr >b:ition. The'e is no eonrtict between | 
labor aoi the legitimate profits of capital But j 
the great pojsoa in this country is the love of 
Wi-alth- Au 1 as life is short, au.l every man im- I 
patient of results, and the great tendency is the | 
consolidation of a;^encies to atcomplirh vast re- I 
suits speedily. So that whenever competition bc- 
pins, piinsolidation results. A short time since, | 
the Merchant's Express Company wa- organized ' 
with an immense capital, in the intercuts of the 
people, a* it was said, to break down the monop- 
oly of the then existing company. Competition 
Went on, until both companies came to the not 
unnatural conclusion, that it would be more prof- 
iiable to unite and plunder the people for their 
joint benefit, than it was to carry merchandize 
for too low a rate to amount to compensation. J-o 
tbey consolidated; and now have everything 
their own way. Various telegraph companies 
have passe 1 through the same experience and 
reached the same result. Railroad companies 
»re not behind in the wi.'dom of this generation, 
and are now bending all their energies to a con- 
nolidation, which will prevent competition and 
deliver the people bound hand and foot into 
their lender keeping. For all practical purposes 
wc have but one telegraph com))any in the Uni- 
te 1 Stales, and but one express company. If 
nothing is done to check the present tendencies, 
it will not be lon^ until wo shall have but ono 
railroad company in the United .■^tates;and 
then it is by no means improbable that three 
monster monopolies may, "in order t . form a 
more perfect union," "insure rl„m>-^tirtniii>iiiilitif,' 
provide for their '-coinm >n defence" and pro- 
mote their "general 

Supreme Court, the State of Iowa has abdicated 
its sovereignty over the great highways of the 
State, and transformed ibem from trust properly, 
held by the corporations for public use, into ab- 
solute estate in individual and private right. 
This declaration is not less important and start- 
ling than the Dred Scott deoision ; and exhioits 
the dangerous tendenciea I have been considering 
If two railroads in our State, with their rolling 
stock, buildings, fixturos and other property per- 
taining to them, are private property owued, op- 
erated and used by the rc-'pecti^e companies "/or 
the tJcU*irt lewjU and adauntnije oj the H(c!t- 
kiAdert" of the respective companies, then they 
may, as ca.^ily and as legally, bo consolidated, 
a» two larms owned by two individuals may be 
changed from individual to joint ownership. As 
soon as a railroad is declared to be i,riv,tU j>i<,j>- 
«rtv, all the con.sequcnocs of private property at- 
tach to it, and it may be operated or abandon- 
ed, kept or eold, at the option of its owners In ; 
other words the public have no control over it. | 
and the owners have a right to operate it with- , 
out the slightest regard to the interests of the ; 
public: which thev will be certain to do. Con- 
solidation will destroy competition: and then 
the capitalist can e.\aci just what he pleases for , 
transportation of commodities, which, of course, 

must be paid by the producer. 
I It is cvi.lent, that any rate of tolls above a fair 
profit upon the amount of capital octuuHif »« y.^V '■ 
ed iu railroods, is an unjust exaction which 1 
' should be restrained by law, if any power exists 
I to restrain it. It is further e\ideut that if the 
; doctrine be conceded that our railroads are mere ^ 
' private proporlv, and legislatures powerless to 1 
control them, the grosse,->t abuses and apprehen- , 
! sions will follow. .Most civilized countries reg- 
ulate th* rate of interest, by I'cnal laws; visit- 
! ing severe penalties njion the capitalists who . 
takes advantage of the nc3es»ities of the borrow- ; 
! cr. But there is infinitely more need of legisla- 
tion here. Loining money is a thing within the 
power of anv private c'.ti/;cn having money ; he 
needs and obtains no legislative franchi.-'e, ot 
' monopoly of the loaning business. Competition , 
. is therefore eerUiu to exist; and this, ot itself, is 
thought by many, to be sufficient protection 
aga usl the ext.rtion of lenders. But how does 
. it stand with capital invested in railroads, lu 
i the lirst place the company has a monopoly — 
i The state has clothed it with corporate powers 
' aud immunities. The farmer must export his 
produce over the railroad, because tA«re i»iu< one. 
Every man docs not owu a railroad; every man 
coubi not operate it, exacting toll." from the pub- 
lic, if he did own one. That requires legislative 
sanction. The producer is therefore iu the power 
of tlic capita!ist.s, as to trau.-portafion : aud un- 
less the law eau restrain or limit his demands. 
oppl•e5^ion may and will be practi.-ed. and. un- 
til within t«o or three years, the power o» the 
legislature to control railroads, a.-i public high- 
wiivs. has universally been conceded. Bnt the 
new doctr.ue now eoutcnded for, that a railro:id 
is private and not public property, strikes a death 
blow at all legislative control, and leaves the 
people at the mercy of our corj). rations, ro tar as 
the Sta'e governiiunt is eomcrued. The State 
can control the management of public property : 
but has no right to control the use of mrre/jrii-u/e 

and all other materials required could bo pro 
cured by contract, as the government gets ua- 
tenuls lor harbors and other public .mprove- 
Bienls. f he only thing needed lor 
whioh would cost iheg«.veroniont what it wouio 
ould be the iron. In every 
ould have an ad- 


pro; if he employs laborers, and buys 
;< horses to carry on his farm, ho will tei 

p, onrrty. 

If the state of thing* now existing 


defeuce" aud 
" "ordain and 



tablish a constitution," which shall combine 
three in one; and it will be owing to the mer.y 
of Heaven, or the vigilance of our people, if they I 
do not so far extend their schemes as to ur'/uin a 
n^ir constitution /or th» pcopU 0/ iftt L'nited :!>t,iltt. 


This fearful conisolidation lends to withdraw 
corporate action from public observation. Slave- 
holders coul.l plot in secret ; but to execute their 
s.'hcmes they had to publish their plattbrms and 
■"70 to thr rooiitrif" for a trial. The people v.ere 
th IS informed of what was intended, and it was 
lh i- own fault if they did UDt take care of tlieni- 
se Vj-«. But the railroadi. express and telegraph 
buMuess of the United Statej oinbrHcing u;itold 
millions of capital, reaching into every State. 
Territory, couutv, town, village and farm of the 
countrv,' may all be managed by a board of fil 
tcon di'rcotors. sitting with closed doo-s, by .an- 
dle li"ht, in Wall street. What they determined 
upon,"thoy need not submit to public examina- 
tion nor to thj contingency of a general ele-jtion 
bv the people; and thus a power more formida- 
ble than the p jwers of this gigantic national Gov- 
because more clo-ely touching 

is an evil, 
and the tendency is to an aggravation of that 
evil, it is interesting, to eonsider whether any 
and what remedy can be invoked. 

It l< evident that a corporation which owns a 
railroad through half a dozen State.*, cannot be 
oontroled bv any one State, and if every State 
should enle'r upon the task, it is certain that 
each would have a theory of its own, and noth- 
ing but confusion would result. A regulation to 
be of any avail must be uniiorm ; there can be 
no uniformity where thirty sovereiguties are ut- 
tering their voices and enforcing their wills upon 
the same subjc-t This consideration led to the 
adoption, in the eonstitution of the 1 uited States 
of the provision that Congn-.-s should have power 
"To r,./,i(atr loniincrce with foreign nations, 
am<»,(j'the ititrni Stuff, and with the 
tribes." Art. 1, sec. 7. 

Commerce in the general sense is defined to 
"an inter change or mutual change, of good.-, 
wares, procluct;ons, orjiroperty of any kind, 
tween nation', or individuals, 
or by jiurchaso aud sale;" 
iransp.. rial ion of jic.-ons as 
di>e. Every railroad company emi.loyod iu uiov 
ing mercbaiidise or transporting jicrsons 
one State to another, or fiom one State through 
one or more States, is engaged iu commeree 
"among the several States." as much as the

from the governmciit would be mucii gr«.i'ter. 1

Idtdy that tUe money which has beoi. appropii- 

ated to build Post Oflices and i ourt Houses i.n.i 

improve our rivers and harbors, bus not been 

honestly applied. If the government cannot 

liwd among our peopla honest incu enough to 

administer its affairs, men who will disburse us 

funds without stealing ihem. it should stop, an.i 

prono: nee free institutions and government by 

the people, a failure and nn impossibility. 

(3) It will also be said that the g..reriimeni 
is alr-ady burdened with a heavy debt, that 11 
would be uiadaess to en'er into so gigantic a 
scheme of internal imj-rovcment in our preaeui 
"•on'iition. . 

This depends upon a more question 0. pront 
or in regard to the particular transaction. 
It a farmer who was heavily in J'jbt should, lor 
(bat reason hold his bunds i" tbo t-pring, i.nd re 
\ fuse to buy seed wheat on credit, and so let his 
: farm go to waste, his wisdom would not hi ap- 
ed If he buys wheat and corn to sow ana 

• ' oxen 


rarilv increase bis'indebtedness; but in no olh- 
er way can he realize the rich crops of aulum;: 
which may not reap tho expensi.s of the year, 
bjt go far towards li(iuida<iiig uis indebtedness. 
So if the government coul.l build a railroa.l 
from Chicag ^ to New York in three years, up- 
on which it should levy «uch tolls as w,.nld have 
thwefTect to reduce the cost of transporting mer- 
chandize one-half and still pay for its own e n- 
struetion in twenty years, after which tho tolls 
eould be atill farther reduced down to tho actua 
cost of keeping th« road in repair, then it would 
not be an extravagance but an act of prudence 
to do it ; because the government would by this 
proceeding lose nothing and the pcoplo would 
begrctlyeuriehod. And it is to be borne in 
mind thut the people have got to pav this nation- 
al debt. The government couid not redeem a 
postage st.imp without thepco[do, and whatever 
enriches the people, develops tho resources 
country and increases its property, tends lo 
cr,.HSC thec.tpa.ity of the people to pay the delt 
Congress has heretofore grunted aid »o rail 
roa.l companies in the form of grants ol lands 
and bonds. The government «ets nothing back 
for tlio lands granted, and the people get no 
benefit, if she companies are to band together to 
plunder the commerce of the country. As a 
' mere investmcMt, it would be better for the gov 
eriiment t.' build and hold a railroad until it

But some good, soul, who never

R.Vilroad companies first sought fran.-hise.« 
from tho State upon the g'ound lliat 
were public highways, and as much the 
control of the legislative po ver as any other ^ 
hi-hway. It was upon this ground, and this on- 
lyrthat the court* upheld the e.xf-rci.e of the 
r'ight of eminent domain in favor ot railroadcom 
panics, which euabled the company, a.- th.- agent , 
of the S;» c. to take any mau'.s laud lor the nse , 
of the road, in fa.-e of a eonstitution which tor- i 
bids the taking of private property, yr^/.t /or a 
y„Ui. u.t. Then, too, the inaucn lal and weal- 
thy men of a community boeame sto.-kholdcrs , 
of" the companies and controlled the roads in the 
interest of the etmuinnities along the .lie. uut 
all this is changed. I venture to say that not 
five men. and the Chan -es are that not one man 
in Madison, owns a dollar of stock in any rail- ^ 
road runnio* to or through this town. And as 
thechanu-ter of the stockholde-s has changid. 
thev have cra.sod to be the leading business men 
of the commuttities interested in the manngemcnf • 
of the roads, and come to oe a few immense cap 
italists residing abroad. So. too, the theory up- 
on which the roads were originally constructed, j 
is changing: »ii<l th" Supreme Court of W i.-con- , 
•in and the Supreme Court of Iowa, two most i 

intelligent and upright courts, have recently de- 
eidcl that a railroad company is a r«<r< pnratf 
aud that the legislature has no more 

of ths St.iie, 
of Congress ; 

any person or corporation 

obedience to all coustitutioual regulations ol

The.power to regulate commerce, include.- the 
oower'to facilitate CMinmerce : if not, liieu ever) 
li.' on the .a llrntic coast is «heii.iing an 
iincoustitoti..nal light upon the midnight marin- 
^T.—l Laughter.] It is impo.«>ible. 1 tbiak, ' 
distinguish between the power, in congress 
der lIic Constitution, to build a lighthouse 
its power to buiid a eami or a railroad, 
pra-iieal corsirudim which the Constitution 
lias received, is, thai Congress may lej:islate in 
aid of commerce. It may build harbors, im 
prove lakes and rivers an.l d.i whatever else 
may render commerce easy, safe and profitable. 
The cHconnujtuifxt as well as tho prutcction Ol 
I eommeree was o c of the chief m^dives which 
' led t.> the adoption of the constiutiou ; and in i 
' ibis light the constitution has been regarded by i 
; .,11 our M.itesmcn. rh« United .-tales might , 

build roads bclwcen such prominent points as 
I the general irt< rests of coiniuercc re<|Uire. and

To illustrate. JiippoSe the government fhonld 
build a railroad wiih two or four tracks from 
' Cliica 'o to New York ; and thro.» it open to the 
' pub!ii"nsc. under certain regulations as to use. rales of toll to be paid by any ; 
ner.on running a tra^n upon the road. Il would i 
thus be iu the p.wer of the government to r^gu- i 
late the carrying business which is ."so important 
nn element in domestic c'.m'nerce, so as fully to 
protect the people. The power to do tnis is un- , 
questionable. If«ny man doubts ibe power as 
aregulation of commerce, there is no doubt as 
to the power of Congress to build a r.nlno,-,, road 
with four iron track, from Chicago to New 
York; ind when not actually re.,uired for the 
transhipment of troops or mi'itary suprlies, to 
anlhorizp its u«o »t certain rates of toil by pri 
rate individua'i. Our navy is employed not 
ly in protecting our foreign commerce 
suc-oring merchant TCSicl* in distress; 
doubt might bo employed, when njt needed 
national defense, in any way to prom-te nation- 
al prosperity. But, conceding the power, it wir 
be SHid there are many objecii-ns tobeur^ed 
against it. Undoubienly : but the questio.i x<. 
whether there are blessings to be expected 
than dangers to be apprehended.

pavitinthat time; year by year. the ability tious. The Umt«a 

to pay increases in a rapid ratio, bat the 
harden of interest ought to be reduced as 
rapidly as can be done without the viola- 
tion of contract. The public debt is rep 
resented in great part by bonds having liom 
five to ten and from ten to forty years to 
run, bearing interest at the rate of six per 
cent, and five per cent, respectively. It is 
optional with the Government to 
pay their bonds at any period af- 
ter the expiration of the lea^^t ' time 
mentioned upon their face. The time has 
expired when a great pait of them may b* 
taken, and the time is rapidly approaching 
when all may be. It is believed that all 
which are now due may be replaced by 
bonds bearing a rate of interest not ex- 
letiling four and a half per cent . and that 
as rapidlv as the remainder become due 
they may be replaced in some way. 
To accomplish thi-i it may become neces- 
sary tv authorize interest to be paid at 
either of the three or four mon-y centers 
of Europe, or by the Assistant Treasurer 
of the United Stivtas, at the option 
of the holder of the bond I 
suggest this subject for the consideration 
ot Congress; also, simultaneously with this, 
the propriety cf redeeming our currency, 
as before suggested, at its market value, at 
the time a law goes into c fleet increasing 
the rate at which the currency will be 
bought and sold, from day to day, or week 
to w-'ek, at the same rate of interest as the 
government pays upon its bonds. 

The subject of tarilf and inlt-rnal taxation

prove a pjoteciiou to th** Britl.h produce, 
almost <:qu 1 to the proiectiou which our 
manufacturers now receive from the tariff. 
Some arrangement, h.nvever, for the regu-

about ilay last, i-ssued a proclamation au- 
thorizing search to be made of vessels on

was made against this, whereupon the 
Captain-General issued a new proclamation 
limiting the right of search of vessels ot 
the United States, so far as authorized un- 
der the tieatv of 1795. This proclamation 
wan, howcT^r, immediately withdrawn. I 
have alwavs felt that the most intimate re- 
lations should be cultivated between the 
republic of the United States and all inde- 
pendent nations on this continent, 
and it may be well worth 
considering whether new treaties between 
the United States and them may not be 
profitably entered into, to secure more in-

Chief Magistrate of the United SUtes it

I also call special attention to the recom- 
mendation of the G neral commanding 
the miiitarv division of the Pacific for the 
sale of the Seal Islands of St. Paul and St. 
George, Ala.ska Territory, aud suggest that 
be complied with, or that

which a revenue should be derived. 

The reoort of the Secretary of War con- 
tains a synopsis of the heads oi bureaus, of 
commanders of military •divisions and of 
tb* districts oi Virginia, Mississippi and 
Texas. The report of the General cf the 
Army in fall, and the reoommf-ndations 
therein contained, have been well consid- 
ered and are submitted for your action. I, 
however, call special attention to the re- 
commendation of the Chief of Ordnance for 
the sale of arsenals and lands no longer of 
use to the Government; also t« the recom- 
mendation of the Secretary of War that the 
act of 3d of March, 18G9, prohibiting pro- 
motions aud appintments in stafl" corps of 
the army, be repealed. The extent of 
country \o be garrisoned, and the number 
of military posts to be occupied is the 
same with a reduced army as with a large 
one; the number of statt' oflicers required 
is mor» dependant upon the latter than 
the former condition. The report of the 
of the Navy accompanying 
shows the condition of the 
when this administration came 
into office, and changes made since 

Strenuous efforts are being made to place 
as many vessels in commission or render 
them fit for service, if required, as soon as 
possible, and substituting the Fail for 
steam while cruising, thus materially re- 

and will undoubtedly receive, its due con- 
sideration. . 

There are many subjects not alluded to lA 
this me88at?e which might with propriety 
be introdoced. but I abstain, believing 
your patriotism and statesmanship will 
suggest the topics and legislation most 
conducive to the interests of the whole 
people. Oo my part, I promise a rigid 
adherence to the laws and their strict en- 
forcement. U. S. GBAirr.

The additions to the pension rolls of each 
succeeding year since tho conclusion of 
hostililies''re8ult in a great degree from the 
repeated amendments of the act of 
the 14th ot July, 1862, which would 
extend its provisions to cases not 
filling within its original scope. 
The large outlay which is thus occasioned 
is fuither increased by the more liberal al- 
lowance bestowed since thatS|date upon 
those who, in the Une of duty, were wholly 
or i)ermaueutly disabled. Public opinion 
has given an emphatic sanction to these 
measures of Congress, and it will be con- 
ceded that no part of our public burden is 
more cheerfully borne than that which is 
imposed by this branch of the service. It 
necessitates for the next fiscal year, 
• in addition to the amount just chargeable to 
' the naval pension fund, an appropriation 
of thirty million dollars.

ycar, milking a total of 
cventy-aevcn mTltw from St. Paul toward Du- [

St. Pjul and Sioux City Road have extended 
ihui^ line of ro:id froiu Mankato to Crystal Lake, 
a distance of fifteen miles and in conjunction 
iv-ih the Milwaukee and St. Paul road have 
completed tbe new line a'^ross tbe Missouri riv- 
er and brought the cars from tbe wcbtcrn and 
jouthorn portions of the State dircct'y into the 
< ity. thus giving St. Paul an all rail Eastern 
i couuection. 

7'he Sorlhvrn Mtmiegota Road have built tbcir 
line from R;:msey, a point of junction with the 
.Milwaukee and ^t. Paul road, to Wells, a dii- 
lance of forty miles, on whK-h freight and pas- 
.-on<'cr trains are low running regularly. 

Wiii',,,0 nud Si. l''t:,- Hood.—TK\i company 

have added twenty a ilea to their road during 

1 the present season, leaving only fifteen or cigh- 

1 toeu more of road to build to complete the entire 

line to St. Petei. 

St. I'ltul u,i'l Vhirago noad.—1h\i new road 
' has sprung' into esis:cncc only during the pres- 
ent yoar, and has not made so much progress 
an the other r.iilroads in Minresota. The grad- 
ing has been done and tbo iron nearly laid 'rom 
■^t. P-.;il to llasting.-i. Thai portion of the road 
uinv lie running in Jic.'*eui''cr. 
il-i»ih»j» "lid Ifiikuiit Uoiid is another new 
,^.-v....s .-w road. During this season it has been ex.tended 
One of the ' from Farmington, where it tros<c.- the Milwaukee 
and St. Paul road, to Lakevilie, a distance of 
ten miles, and Ihb cars are running regularly to 
that point. I 

This gives 7^1 miles of completed road in the | 
Ftate. Divided among the differeut companies as } 
follows : 

St. Paul and Pacific (main and branch lines) 21..

As the seasou for active operations in extend- 
ing iheso dir^erent lines of road is about closing, 
it may be of interest to learu what . progress has 
been made in railroad builaiug in Miuneseta 
during tho year. Tbe year UiiO will long be 
remem!iere4,as oue peculiarly unfavorable for 
railroad work. The spring was backward, and 
the greater portion of the summer. Yet, not- 
withstanding all the difficulties contractors 
had to meet with, the feason's work shows, in 
the aggregate, that 244 miles of road have been 
built and put in operation, divided among the 
d'fferent roads as follows: 

Si. Paul and Pacific (Main line), to Chippewa 
river, ninety mile." west of Crow river: total, 
171 miles from St. Paul. The grading will be 
continued beyond Chippewa river until the 
weather compels a sospension of work.

partof their system to sell alw.iya at least re- 
munerative profit, depending on increased 
amount of business for a satisfiictory result to

reduced prices, and it is said, are now selling 
their famous organs at even ^csii than it costs a

years since Dr.\ 
Roback, the cel-

^^i^^^K^mmm^J den, came to this 
country and introduced the Scan- 
dinavian Blood Purifier; since 
which time tho\isand8 have been 
cured, by iis use, of Scrofula and 
other blood diseases. It contains,

ed from Su^en for its express 
manufacture, nnhnown and not 
kept by apothe-

wonderful value.

moved about Uke an old roan, bent down by years of 
suffering. At length your Porous PUsters were recom- 
mended to me. I applied one to each kidney, and the 
relief was immediaU ; 1 wore them for thirty days, when 
my back and kidneys were perfectly well and I was

part of the spectmm opposite 'sLicb one ot 
tLe prominence-iniagea exibts, he can then 
gee that image quite diatinctly, for the 
neighboring part of the solar spectrum is 
so redaccd in splendor that it no longer 
obliterates the prominence-figure. In this 
way, then, the obserrer selects one or oth- 
er ot the pictnrts of a prominence, either 
the red or the green picture, to examine. 
And strangely enough, it is by no means 
certain that the two pictures are alike.— 
Rather it is highly probable that they are 
different, though we have not space here 
either to indicate reasons for believinc this, 
or to explain the significance of tlie cir- 
cumstance should it eventually be estab- 

It seems to us that when we consider the 
real dimensions of the solar globe, we ap- 
preciate more fully the wonderful nature of 
those processes of action indicated by re- 
cent reaearches, than when we regard these 
without direct reference to the sun's mag- 
nitude. How many of as really appreciate 
the enormous volume of the un? We 
read certain figures in books of astronomy, 
but do we grasp their full significance ? 
There is, however, a Himple way of viewing 
the matter which at once opens our eyes 
to the vastness of the solar globe.

A Battle with Stage Robbers. 
(Jn Sunday a week ago, the Yuma, Cali- 
fornia, stai,'e coach, when between Yuma 
and San Diego, was attacked by stage rob- 
bers. The coach was in a narrow road, 
the on either sido being quite thick. 
The robbers ;ii>peared in the road, and 
called on the driver to halt and give up 
the treasure on board, one stepping into 
the road in front of them, and the other 
three surrounding the coach. The stage 
not halting promptly, the man in the road 
fired and killed the ofT wheeler. There 
i werebix passengers on board, and when

of six pictures placed beside it, add we see 
the solar forces in action. First, there is a 
vant flume, some 18,CXK) miles high, bowed 
toward.s th« ri${ht, as thongh some fierce 
wind were blowing upon it It extends in 
this «lirection some tour or five thousand 
mile5i. The ni xt picture represents the 
same object ten niuutes later. The tlgnre i j 
of the prominence hius wholly changed. It 
Id now a g obf-shaped mas.s, standing on a 
narrow stalk of light above a row of flame- 
nillocks. It irf bowr I towards the left, bo 
that in thosK »hort li mutes the whole mass 
of the nam<=>< has Bw^;>t tUonsanda of miles 
away from ics former position. Only two 
minults later, and a^aiu acoiupletechange 
of appearance. The Htalk and flame-hillocks 
havd vanished, and the globe-shaped ma^;B 
has become elongated. Three minutes la- 
ter, the shape of the prominence has ulter- 
ed BO completely that one can hardly re- 
coguiz- it for the same. The stalk is again 

on the fight commenced. The passengwrs 
were poorly armed ; theie were only three 
revolvers and a shot-gun aboard, but the 
owners used them in a lively manner - 
driving the robbers off, and grafting away 
with the treasure. One man on board the 
coach named Davis got a scratch on the 
eg. The coach received several shots. 
Alter the highwaymen were driven off, 
their coats and spurs were found hanging 
on the bushes. A horse was found next 
day tied to a tree, supposed to have b^en 
left by the party for the useof tko man who 
was shot, and who is believed to be hid 
away in the vicinity of the attack. A tuos- 
sage was sent back to Yuma for a party to 
go in search, and the Indians were put on 
the trait Their capture is nearly a cer- 


risible but the upper is bowed down

There is nothing new hero m the Jme ot

flouriah here is the greatest perfection, and 
are tvpes of western progress and enter 
1 rise.' The changed relations which busi- 
ueed, politics and religio.i have beeu made to 
Muat<tin to each oiher, within a single ge era- 
tion, is marvelous. In the early hiotory of 
secular journaUem in this country, relgioua 
topics were regarded as forpign to the secu- 
lar press, and the proceedings of religiou.n 
bodies, and the progress of religious reviv- 
als secured but a meagre notice, as matter of 
newa— often accompanied by an apilogy, as 
if the prees were treading on unusual, if not 
forbidden ground. Gradually, however, the 
secular journals attained to greater freedom, 
and broader views of their duties, till now 
nothing o#'humar interest escapes their no- 

The change in religious journala has been 
quite as marked. From being devoted solely 
to religious tonics, and thus giving a quat>i 
aauctiun to the practical hereaay that rehg- 
iou was rightfully divorced from businehs 
and politics, these papers, beside giving re- 
ligions news, disouHsing religious questions, 
and enforcing religions truth, now 
publish a summary of the cur- 
rent ufws, chroniclo all im- 
portant evcntf, give full commercial reports, 
and discuss, with marked ability, financial 
and political queetiona. Taking a lively in- 
terest in all that concerns human well-being, 
they hcek to mould the government and bua- 
inesa of the country, in its national aapecls 
as well as in the details of privafn lite, into 
harmony with the laws of God. The leading 
religious presses of the country not only 
command a large circulation and influence, 
but are sought for by bueinesa men and poli- 
ticians, as indices of the future and guidea 
of a healthy public sentiment, in relclion to 
trade and politics. The infusion of a healthy 
rnoril sentiment into channels of buainesn 
and politics is a public benclaction. In this 
connection I cannot forbear noticing a re- 
cent flagiant breach of good manners— not i 
to say good morula— in a widely circulated ] 
religious journal, with which I have been - 
famdiar from its origin— the New York lude- | 
pendent For the laxt lour years it has | 
watered its columns largely with commercial j 
advertising and wholesale puffing of railroad \ 
bondd and mortgages, lianka, Insurance com- 
Lanies.Ac.and prospered pecuniarily n so do , 
lUR. Independent of all religions organi/.ationa 
and representing only its editor and publish- 
er, it had a right to use its columns as it 
chose, subject only to the laws of morality, 
and to the courtesioa and amenities which are 
obacrvt d by all tiiS decent portion of the 
secular press. But iu ita ieeue of December 
2d, it has two cuts occupying half of the first 
and last pages of a triple sheet, reprenentiUK 
- the liiHt— tlie principles <f the Independ- 
ent, and what it claims to have acotimpHshrd. 
and— the l&f t— the Birthday Binqu't oT the 
Independent on attaining" its majority <.f 
tweutv-one years. In this last cut are repi o- 
aenteii the publisher, editor and contriDut<irB

corner the waiter is driving out a lean, 
hungry dog, on whose collar is printed, in 
capitala, the name of its Chicago C(;tempi»- 
isry, the "Advance." Its self-glorification 
is a* matter of aste, but its pictorial vilifica- 
tion of its neighbor is nnworihy of a Chrie- 
'.ian newspaper. What is the characttr of 
the cotemporarv which the Independent 
caricatures and contemns ?

face vanished altogether in ten minutes. — 

The very way iu which Zollner's drawings 

were tak«>n eavors of the marvtllons. We 

have spoken of them as colored. They are 

rubv-red. and so the prominence appeared 

to tiie astroocmer. The real light of the 

prominences ia not ruby red, however, but 

rose-color-id, with laint indications of pink. 

or even tints, The fact is, that by 

the new method ^f observation the image 

ot a prominence is formed bv only a cer- 
tain part of iiH light. We may say that 

out of th*> several colored images of the 
tame prominence the astronomer selects 

one only for examination. The explana- 
tion oft hif is worth consideration, aa it 
involves the essence cf the method by 
which the prominences nro seen at all.— j 
Wbea we analyze light with a simple prism ' 
aa Newton did, we get instead of a round 1 
•potof white— that is, mixed light— a row 
cioverlapping spots of different color. It 1

only tbat the dirk lines of the spectrum 
could be seen. And it was to see these 
lines more clep.rly that the slit of the spec- 
troscope WA.S made so narrow and the rain- 
bow-spectrnm made so long by gpectros- 
copists. Bat t lie observers ot the promin- 
ence* go back to the old method. If they 
used a narrow slit, a narrow strip of the 
prominence wjnid alone form its spectmm,

Oue of them suggested that the "Big 
M^icine man," (the preacher) might be 
exerting his powers of incantation to exer- ' 
cise and drive away bad spirits which had I 
got possession of the people. Another one ' 
surmised that possibly this was a big pale-

as to pronounce the whole company stark, 
raving mad. But none of their opinions 
seemed to meet the ooncirrence of the ma- 
jority of th« pnrty until Dandy, who had 
looked on with great it ttrest for some time, 
at length assumed an air of impon.ince, 
and exclaimed : 'I have it— I have it; I'll

M u-of- War -Some Big Ships that are 
Itiiilaiiitr Tor J«hn4iull. 

The keel of one of the typical first-class 
Britiah war ships for the future has just 
been laid at Portsinonth. She bears the 
suggestive title of Devastation, and along 
with her consort, the Thunderer, to be 
shortly commenced, will take preaedence 
of all the existing grades in the Britiah 
navy. Her length is 285 feet, her extreme 
breadth G2i feet, mean draft 26 feet, and 
tons burden, 4.406, old measurement. She 
is to be worked by two engines of 800 horse 
power, and her estimated speed is set 
down at 12 i knots per hour. She will be 
able to carry 1,600 tons of coal. snfiOicient 
for a three weeks' cruise. 

She is to be constructed on the genuine 
turret principle, without any attempt to 
unite, by the addition of masts and sails, 
the characteristics of two distinct varieties 
of fighting ships. Being, then, neither 
adapted for a cruiser nor a guardship, she 
is simply a floating battery of enormous 
power. She will carry two turrets, and on 
each will be mounted two thirty-ton gnus, 
capable of throwing shot of six hundred 
pounds weight. Her sides are to bo cotu- 
posed of teak and iron of nearly three feet 
in thickneHH, constituting an armor plating 
which is intended to make her the moat 
impenetrable ship of any navy, while her 
armament is claimed as the heaviest yet 
attempted. Owing to the absence of any 
work aloft, a crew of two hundred and 
fifty men will, it is said, be sufficient to 
work her. She is to cost $1,450,000 in

Crime in the British abmt is increasing. 
The average number of effective soldiers ia 
set down at 186,508, and the number o 
convictions last year amounted to 25,612f 
or 13. 73 per cent The number of soldiera 
sent to military prisons at home — which 
was 5,470 in 1764, or 6.97 per cent, of the 
force— was gradually augmented in the in- 
teiTening years, until it reached 7,553, or 
8.88 per cent., in 1868; while the daily av- 
erage number of men in military prisons 
at h me had risen from 1.27 per cent, in 
1864, to 1,241, or 1 47 per cent, in 1868.— 
This increase is in a great measure due to 
the prevalence of drunkenness among the 
soldiers, and a considerable diminution in 
this ofleuce is anticipated from the new 
regulation whioh now punishes it by fines 
instead of imprisonment After drunken- 
ness, desertion stands prominent in the 
catalogue of military crimes, for which 1.- 
776, of the 7,553 sentences pa8f?ed in 18G8,

Talk about cats — here's one that beats 
anything evier heard of before. His name 
is George? and his love of music is remark- 
able. Whenever any one plays on the piano, 
George takes position on a chair near by, 
iind at certain passages, that must be par. 
ticularly pleasing to him, does bis "me- 
ows" most enthusiastically by way of np- 
plttURo. Sometimes, when the parlor ia de- 
serted, and the piano left open, George will 
mount the Btool, and properly adjusting his 
haunches, pat the keys with his tore-paws 
and perform a numb»r of remarkable invol- 
untiiriert. Occaaionally he plants all-fours 
ou the keys, and, in an ecsticy ot delight, 
dauces up and down and makes music of a 
most original kind. Somebody ought to 
bring that cat out George is no flat in 

An Interviewer Snubbed.— Not long 
Ago a morning paper sent a reporter to 
Iliirlford, Conn., to interview Mrs. 
Stowe on the Bubjectof the Byron Rcandal. 
TLe gentleman saw only the young girl 
who opens the door of Mrs. Stowo's reni- 
dence when the bell is rung. He returned 
to New York. A few days ago the same 
reporter heard that Mrs. Stowe was in tho 
city and went in search of her a^ain, but 
was 80 unfortunate as to see only a relative 
of hers who did not know when she would 
be open to an interview on behalf of the 
presn. The reporter was disgusted, and 
straightway undertook to inteiview James 
Fisk, Jr. iu relation to his views about Ida 
Cowia. Mr. Fisk declined the honor. Im- 
agine the disgust of "interviewer !" 

RiTTTNO before his tent, in the glow of a 
camp fire, one evening. General Shermnn 
let his cigar go out to listen to an air that a 
distant bund was playing. The musicians 
ceased at last The General turned to one 
of his officers: "Send an orderly to ask 
that band to play that tsne again." A little 
while, aud the band received the word. 
ThH tune was "The Blue Juniata," 
with exquisite variations. The band played 
il again, even more beautifully than before. 
Again it ceased, and then, off to the right, 
nearly a quarter of a mile away, the voices 
of some soldiers took "it up, with words. 
The band, and still another band, played a 
low accompaniament. Camp after camp 
began singing, and the music of "The Blue 
Juniata" became for a f«w minutes the ora 
torio of half an army. 

Ths other day a panther entered the 
dwelling of Eli P. Whidden, of Manatee, 
Fill., and attacked a little daughter of Mr. 
Whidden. The father ru.shed to the res- 
cue of his child, whereupon the panther 
turned on him, and compelled him to re- 
treat The animal followed him into the 
yard, where Mr Whidden seized a foot- 
adze and, with one blow, killed the beast 
It is supposed that hunger urged the pan- 
ther to make the attack. The little girl 
was not seriously injured.

Hooffland's Bitters. "Hoofland's German 
Bitters is well known to the invalid. For 
many yea; a it has been in use, and its rep-

but there are diseases and disabili-

Back through the pact's bewildered dream, 
Through empty roars or tilled with pain. 

Through broken arehe?, gates that seem 
I'nhiugcd to let lue pa.-ts aguin — 

Mj- wandering thoughti< awhile to-day 
May ti'c>ad in sad retleetive mood, 

■Where once the tardy feet would stray. 
And loitur idly on the road. 

What iipot is this? The only green 

In the wide do^ert of the years. 
The only :'pof that love i-ould screen 

From the hot, blinding rain of tears. 

Ah I Chihlhood 1 for one sunny hour ! 

One hope, one drcau^hat tuudi; it bright, 
^re tiny hand.-* hud crushed the fl>jwer 

While yet unfolded to the light. 

Here — only here — the smile that knows 
N'jt the dull cares tlmt manhood seeks, 

Here life's bright spring-time molls il^' snOws 
That flow dowu April's blu.-hiug checks. 

■What are these shadows dark? — a ecoro 
t-T furrow* on life's features wan. 
Ah! these were hopes when seen before, 

But memories when looked back upon. 

And this ? — beneath the yew tree's care — 
j^cnipo from the stone the moss and mould. 

Ah ! ica I the ^addest siory there 

That would have been unguessed, untold. 

Oh! Christmas time — the snow that fbll 

A year ago — is whitf to-day; 
On brow and beard it lasts a- well 

A^ on the mountain tops in May. 

Fall deeper yet. It eannot freeze, 
Xor even chill the faithful heart. 

That in the cold of times like these 

Feels the warm life-blood through it start. 

Oh ! tardy feet linger still 
In dusty rooms and ciupty halls. 

As if in hope that memory will 

Build «traight again the c rumbling walls. 

"I wore better not. Through broken panes 
Of unbarred windows steal the light. 

And through the totterins; arches comes 
A Chri-'tmas day without a night.

That the Mason 4 Hamlin Cabinet and Met-

proved by the almost unanimous opinion of pro ' 
fessional luufcicians, by the award to them of i 
seventy-live gold and silv.r medals or other ■ 
highest prewiuius. at principal industrial com- 
petitions within a few years, including the med- 
al at the Paris Exposition, and iiy a sale very 
much greater than that of any similar instru 
ment. This Company manulncture only first | 
class instruments, and will not make "cheap 
organs" at any priea. or suffer an inferior instru- 
ment to bear their name, ilaving greatly in- 
creased their facilities for uianuf'act ire, by the 
intnxiuetion of new machinery and otherwise, 
they arc now making better organs than ever be- 
fore, at increased economy in cost, which, in

ways at least remunerative profit, they are now

Asch, tho last of General Sheridan's staff. Since ,

his appreciation of their services : To Dr. Ly- I 
man, a valuable set of catheters, electro-plated i 
with goid, aud suitably inclosed and insoribcd ; i 
to Dr. Jones, a full set of test gla.-^scs for the eyes, 
and to the other physicians appropriate gifts, ac-

photographs of the Admiral and bis wife. 

A new Orleans reporter was being shown 
through the Insane Asylum the other day, when 
he eneouutercd a very pretty blue-eyed damsel, 
who at once rushed into his arms with the ex- 
clamation — "Oh! my dear hu;'oand!" The re- 
porter wished to sooth the agiUtcd feelings of the ^ 
little unfortunate, and stroked her hair caressing- 
ly, as he replied : -Why. my little dear, did 
you ihiuk I would stay away from you 7" "No," 
ehtf innocently replied, "yon always liked to kiss 
me." "But you know yon are insane, my dear." 
he said. "Yes : " she replied wearily, "tha:'s the 
reason I kiss yon !" 

A New Jersey Farmer lost his wife the other 
day. After the funeral one of bis old friends 
eame to take tea aui condole with him. The 
widower dilated upon the virtues of the deceased 
and exclaimed : "But wasn't it a beautiful fu- 
■ c«ral ?" "Yes." replied the friend, "very inter- 
esting indeed." "(Juite a crowded house, wasn't 
it, though?" asked the mourner. "Very, very ; 
quite a siiccess," groaned the friend. "Did you 
DGtica th« hymn ? wasn't it touching?" queried 
the wido»«r. "Very, very ; I jined into it with

The ITew Tork IXTeekly Tribune 

CoutaiuB all the important Editorials published in 
the DAILY TRIBUNE, except thoae of merely local 
interest: also Literary and Scleutiflclntelhgence; 
Reviews of the most interesting and important New 
Books; letters from onr large corps of Correspond- 
ents; latest news rfcelved by Telegraph from all 
parts of tbe world ; a summary of all important iu- 
lelligeuce in this city and elsewhere ; a Synopsis of 
the proceedings of Congress and State Legislature 
when In session; Foreign News received by every 
steamer; Exclusive Reports of the Proceedlnga of 
the Farmers' Club of the American Institute; Talks 
about Fruit; Stock, Financial, Cattle, Dry Goods, 
and Qeueral Market Reports. 

Tbe Full Reports of the American Institats Farm- 
ers' Club, and tLe various Agricultural Reports, in 
each number, are richly worth a year's subscription. 

Horticultural Department. 

To keep pace with the growing interest in practi- 
cal Hortlcnltnre, and to comply with frequent ap- 
peals from all parts of tbe country for information ot 
a practical character ou tbe subject, we have engaged 
the services of a ]»erson who is experienced in rural 
affairs to write iu a lucid style a series of articles 
on the Management of Small Farms, Fruit and 
Vegetable Culture, and bow to make tbem pay, giv- 
ing general and Specific directions from planting 
to the ultimate dis osal of tbe crops. 

Of late years there has been a lucrative business 
carrioa ou by uuprinclpled m«n, in selling worth- 
less and oiJ i.lauts under new names to tbe inex- 
perienced. THE TRIBUNE will be always ready 
to guard tbe farmer against any such imposition 
that comes within our knowledge. 

Veterinary Department. . 

To make THE TRIBUNE still more valuable to 
its agricultural reader?, we have engaeed Prof. 
Jamks Law, Veterinary Surgeon in Cornell Univer- 
sity to atiswer questions con:;ernlng diseases cf 
Cattle, Horses, Sheep, and other domestic animals, 
and to prescribe remedies. Answers and prescrip- 
tions will be given only through tbe columns of 
THE TRIBUNE. We are sure that this new feature 
Iu THE TRIBUNE will add largely to its readers, 
as all owners of animals are liable to need tbe infor- 
mation proffered. Inquiries should be made as 
brief as passible, that tbe questions, answers, and 
prescriptions may be published together. In short, 
we intend that THE TRIBUNE shall keep In tbe 
advance in all that concerns tbe Agricultural, 
Manufacturing, Mining, and other iuterests of tbe 
country, and that for variety and completeness, it 
sbn.ll remalu altogether the most valuable, Interest- 
icg, and Instructive NEWSPAPER published in (he 

It has beeu wrll observed that a careful reading 
and study of tbe Farmers' Club Reports in THE 
TRIBUNE aloue will save a farmer hundreds of 
dollars in bis crop. In addition to these reivirts, 
we shall continue to print the best things written 
( ;i the subject of agriculture by American and 
foreign writers, and shall increase these features 
from year to year. As it ia, no prudent farmer can 
do withont it. As a lesson to his workmen alone, 
every farmer should place THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE 
upon hia table every Saturday evening. 

THE TRIBUNE i* the bttt and cheapett paper in 
the rtuntry. This is not said in a spirit cf boastful- 
ueKs. It has fallen to New York to create tbe great- 
est newspapers of the country. Here concentrate 
tbe commerce, the manufactures, the mineral re. 
sources, tbe agricultural wealth of tbe Republic. 
Here all tbe news gathers, aud the patronage is so 
large that journalists can afford to print it. This is 
the strength of THE TRIBUNE. We print the 
cheapest, aud best edited weekly newspaper in the 
country. We have all tbe advantages around us. 
We have great Daily and Semi- Weekly editions. All 
tlie elaborate and intricate machinery of our estab- 
lishment—perhaps the most complete In America — 
la devoted to the purpose of making THE WEEKLY 
TRIBUNE tbe best and cheapest newspaper in the 
world. Tbe result is that we have so systematized 
and expanded our resources that every copy of 
THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE contains as much matter 
as a duodecimo volume. Think of it I For two 
dolUrs, tho subscriber to THE TRIBUNE for one 
year bu\/i as much reading tntiter at though he filled 
a thelf of hit library with fifty voluma, containing 
the greatett works in the language. The force of 
cheapness can no further go. 

THE '«T-EKLY TRIBUNE in tbe paper of the 
people. Here tbe eager student may learn tbe last 
lessons of science. Here the sebolar may read re- 
views of the best books. Here may be found cor- 
respondence from all parts of the world, tbe ob- 
servations of sincere and gifted men, who serve 
THE TRIBUNE in almost every country.

THE TRIBUNE isttrvnghy reason of itt enarmmis 
circulation and great cheapness. It has long been 
conceded that THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE h»« *he 
largest circulation of any newspaper In the country. 
For years we have printed twice as many papers, 
perhaps, at all of the other weekly edltloat of the 
city dailies combined. This Is why we are enabled 
to do our work so thoroughly and cheaply. The 
larger our circulation, the better ptper we can make. 
What are the practical tvggutiont f Many. Let 
every subscriber renew hl.s subscription, and urge 
his neighbor to do the same. If a man cannot af- 
ford to pay two dollars, let him raise a cinb, by in- 
ducing his neighbors lo subscribe, and we shall 
•end him a copy gratit iot his trotible. No news- 
paper 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 
thsn It now Joes. We have solved the problem of 
miking the beat and cheapest newspaper In America.

Ignorance and Wretcbcdneaa In Lon- 
don— The Scliool Question. 

We clip iho lollowii>g piir,\gra|.h from a 
London Utter to rhe New York Htiald: 

"It ib needless to inform any .\merican 
who has Hepu our large towns iu England, 
how fcarlully we are behind you in the 
matter of education for the poor. Ii any 
American correspondent of an American 
Diper, or any .\uierio>in writer resident iu 
England, was to walk down or through a 
single di-strict of a score I could point out 
in London, and was to give his fellow- 
oountrj'men a simple but titithfal account 
of what he saw. £uf;lishmen would put 
down his words as btiug antiue, exagger- 
ated, unfair and the like. And yet I would 
defy him, or any one who was merely a 
word painter, and who nfiver colored his 
pictures, not to astoninh Lis readers with 
the drawing h« set before them, f rovided 
it was only true to the life. When I tell 
you that we have herf> in London upwards 
of 25.000 '-gntter children" who live in the 
streets who never hear the name of their 
Maker but iu a blasphemous oath, and 
who have no occupation but what they 
make for themselves, no leaching but that j 
which educates them for the prison, the I 
reformatory, tho thieves kitchen and for 
ultimate penal servitude; when I tell y.ja 
thi.s us a niuiple statistical fact you will 
hardly wonder if I 8<iy o<iaeation for the 
million is Komewbat needed m this land. 
But when I add also as a statistical fact 
that to these '25.000 wanderers there is an 
addition of 5,tXlO women of bad character 
under 15 years of age, and 5,000 professed 
theives of the same tender years, you will 
wonder now, with the immense wealth ot 
London, (iod docs not visit us for onr sins ; 
and that this huge overgrown Babylon ol ; 
bncks is not destroyed \>y llim as were the ! 
cities of the plainl U;t.s no effort been j 
made to redeem these children ? Has no | 
one, no set of men or women 
foot an undertaking to tducate them in 
some measjre, to teach them scnething of 
honesty uud of thvir relative duties to God 
and man ? 

Efforts have not been wanting, but we di- 
vide our forces, we will not act together, 
and so the evil goes on and is 
increasing. The established 
Church has many scliool.^ aud might have 
the funds at its disposal to have many 
more. The Baptists, tho Wesleyans, and 
the Roman Catholics have also their 
schools; the latter the m..rit energetic, and. 
for the limit»-d i umber of thrir commnni- 
ty, th« most eiB •'..JUt of all. But with the 

freat many of tiie well to-do classes in 
liiglaud tliere is a most naiiccountable ap- 
athy upon that all important subject. Our 
strength is divided; there is no law by 
which parents are obliged to swnd their off- 
spring to school, and "from the thieves, 
roughs, and fallen women one can only ex- 
pect that they should, as they do, greatly 
prefer that the children pick up here a lit- 
tle and there a little -by odd job<, by sell- 
ing matches, by thieveug. and by worse— 
which adds something, no matter how lit- 
tle, to the general liinds of the household. 

Plants iu Siecpiiii; R4><>ih8. 

Though the air is dependent for the re- 
newal of its oxygen on tne action of the 
I green leaves of plants, it must not be lor- 
I gotten that it is only in the presence and 
' under the stimulus of light that these 
: organisms decompose carbonic acid All 
j plants, irrespective of their kind of nature, 
; absorb oxygen aud enhale carbonic acid in 
1 the dark. The quantity of noxious gas 
I thus eliminated is, however, exceedingly 
' small when compared with the oxygen 
'thrown out during tho day. When they 
t are flowering, plants exhale carbonic acid 
' in considerable quantity, and at the same 
time evolvtt heat. In this condition, there- 
fore, they resemble animals as regards 
their relation to the air; and a number of 
plants placed in a room would, under these 
I circumstances, tend to vitiate the air. 
I While the phanerogamia. or flowering 
' plants, depend on the air almost entirely 
for their supply of carbon, and are busy 
during the day in restoring to it the oxy- 
gen that has been removed by animals, 

■ many of the inferior crypogramia, as the 
' fungi and parasitic plants, obtain their 

nourishment from material that has already 
I been organized. They do not absorb car- 
' honic acid, but on the contrary they act 
' like animals, absorbing oxygen and exhal- 
I iug carbonic acid at all limes. It is, there- 

■ fore evident that their presence in a room 
1 cannot be productive of good results. 

Aside from the highly deleterious action 
that plants may exert on the atmosphere of 
; a sleeping-room, by increasing the propor- 
I tiou of carbonic acid during the night, there 
' is another and more important objection to 
' be urged against their presence in such 
i "ipartments. Like animals, they exhale pe- 
I culiar volatile organic principles, which in 
many instances render the air unfit for the 
purposes of respiration. Even in the days 
of Andronicas this fact was recognized, for 
he says, in speaking of Arabia Fwlix, that 
"by reason of myrrh, fraukincense aud hot 
spices there growing, the air was so obnox 
ions to their brains, that the very inhabit- 
ants at some times cannot avoid its influ- 
ence." What the ihflaence on the brains 
j of the inhabitants may have been does not

I thw statement to show that long ago the 
I emanations from plants wtre regarded as 
I having an influence on the condition of the 
I air; and, in view of our present ignorance, 
it wonld be wise to banish them from oru 
sleeping apartments, at lea»t until we ars 
better informed regarding their true prop- 
erties. — Dr. J. C Draper in January Gal- 
I axy. 

The radical party in England propose, as 
a remedy tor this, that an act of Parlia- 
ment should be brought forward by which 
rates i*houid be levied from all household- 
ers for the payment of common schools; 
that to these common school^it should be 
made imperative lor all person.^ who are too 

Kor to educate their ( hilJreu to send both 
ys and k^tU of their families; and that at 
th«se schools no religious leaching be 
either enforced or even allowed, so that up- ' 
on the score of diflerent creeds no objection i 
shouhl be raised. But to this there is the 
opposition of relitfious denominations. The 
Anglicans, the Wesleyans and the Cat ho- . 
lies say alike that education without relig- , 
ion is worse than no education at all. What | 
they demand is that the scheme, now prac- 1 
ticed on a comparatively ^mall scale, and j 
oalled the denominational system, should ; 
be greatly enlarged, and that to each relig- 
ious persuasiou a ^raut ot government 
money should, under ctrtain restrictions. ' 
b« given, with which to build schools, pay 
teachers and general work out, under gov- 
ernment inspection, a system of education 
upon a large scale. 

The Roman C-itholic Church in this 
country has, up to the pn^sent time, shown 
more energy, mora activity, and has been 
more successful iu its schools than any 
i/ther denomination. Aud the clergy as 
well as the laity of that church are. more 
than any others, dttcrmined to oppose 
anything like a system of secular educa- 
tion. They say, • increase the funds yon 
allow us; where you have one Catholic 
school eBJoviu« government assistance, we 
will Mtablish five or six. if you will only 
est«nd the help yon give us. Then, if you 
like, make ii compuUory upon all the 
children of onr taith to attend these 
fchotUs, and punish the parents who don't 
ob«y your order." 

The liberal press object to this. Thsv 
say that they >viil not pay any sect more 
than another. Thev don't want and will 

A Brain Atmosphere. 

A new theory is propounded to show why 
one happens to think of persons he has 
not seen for years just before meeting them. 
A similar phenomenon often happens when 
evex put on ; qq^ ^^^^ impressions of the death of friends 
who may be thousands of miles away, and 
subsequently learns that they died at that 
particular moment. A writer in the Lon- 
don Spectator thinks th&t there is a brain 
atmosphere extending through space, more 
subtle than the air or even than the elec- 
every year i j^^j. flmj, \g th« nndulatioas of the air 
Epiticopal I occasion sound, and the undulations of 
the ether give the impression «^f light, 
so the undulations of this brain 
atmosphere may convey impressions be- 
tween sympathetic minds. The theory is a 
very ingenious one, and there are certainly 
many facts which it will explain very satis- 
factorily, but these differed. t atmospheres 
must be curiously constituted, it su many 
different vibrations, moving from ho many 
directions, do not interfere with one auo h- 
tr. The theory of light, with its hun- 
dred of millions of ethereal vibrations every 
second, through the vast spice between the 
earth and sun, or between the earth and a 
distant nebulas, has always been a tough 
morsel for our mental digestion. The mas- 
ters of science lay down the law, and we 
submit, but our faith is weak. And now 
comes in a new atmosphere, with a new 
sense of motions. It is a little too much 

I for us, we confess, and looks "aw' a mud- 
: die," as tne world did to poor Stephen 
j Blackwell. With vibrations of air, vibia- 
, tious of ether, vibrations of brain almos- 
I phere, and vibrations of electricity, (we 
; suppose that must vibrate too), things will 
I get mixed up badly. 'Tis no wonder m- 
I sanity is increasing, for so many vibrations 
\ are enough to addle any weak brain, and 
make it difficult to distingHish one from 
i tother. We must beg our scientific friends 
! to hold up, and keep their discoveries of 
any more atmospheres to themselves. We 
shall be crushed under the load, if the num- 
I ber is increased. There is a limit to hu- 
man endurance. — Frovidence Journal. 

How Divorces are Obtained. 

A writer in the New York 1 elegram tells 
how divorces are obtained: 

.\ wife, for instance, unrestrained by any 
virtuous ccmpunctions, has a butband 
greatly her senior, in whom there is an ab- 
sence of congeniality, or perhaps imagin- 
ing she fancies some one else more, makes 
application to the ever complaisant "di- 
vorce lawyer. " He hears a statement of her 
grivances, and promises her speedy relief 
for a big fee. 

Regularly in his employment are a set of 
vile creatures whom, I beg the sex's par- 
don, I must call women. Possessed of 
some c*apital in the shape of personal at- 
tractions, but poorindeedin virtue, though 
comelv to the eye, they are patrepcent in 
their souls. They are eager performers in 
any act of turpitude. Instructed minutely 
as to the foibles and tollies of her 
intended victim, she familiarizes her- 
self with his favorite haunts, and gradoally 
insinuates herself into his acquaintance. 
Perhaps she begins with opening an appa- 
rent innocent flirtaticn. or by asking a 
question, proper in itself. An acquaint- 
ance formed, she then inaugurates a system 
of siren-like blandishments, artfnllv weav- 

puriK)se, into five or six inch widths, 
even with brush aud poles; in either, 
however, the expenses of the drains nro 
heavy, and what has its effects also, the 
work is hard aud disagreeable, and where 
the labor of a farm depends on tho farmer 
himbelf or on the members of his family, 
it is difficult to get work of that nature per- 
formed; then again, to dig drains properly 
is a trade, and requires considerable ex- 
perience and special tools, the farmer 
oftea loses ten times the value of them in 
a siu£,le season. 

Draining cannot be recommended too 
strongly, but where draining cannot be 
done, ditching can, and this is the second 
best thing. Pew farms require ditches of 
more than two feet deep from the adjoining 
level, aud where ditches are not deeper 
than that, the entire work can be done 
with the plow and the road scraper, thus 
putting the hard labor on the horses and 
not .in the men, and rendering the task an 
easy one. 

If water is got off tho land quickly in 
the spring when the snows melt, the land 
is never wet during the subsequtnt season; 
whereas, if the winter's rain and snow are 
allowed to lodge on the ground, and soak 
away, it puts the crop back for a considera- 
ble time, renders the land cold aud sour, 
and throws the earliest aud best sown fall 
wheat into the midge season. Where a 
field is wet or flat there ought to be a ditch 
all around it, the earth thrown out by the 
plow in forming it on one side being made 
up into a bank for the fence, and on the 
other, spread otit on the adjoining land as 
evenly as possible, and so as to prevent the 
water from forming a lodgment. For form- 
ing such ditches as these nothing can be 
better than the plow; nothing moves earth 
so fast or so cheaply, and by proper man- 
agement the greatest portion of the earth 
in the future ditch never requires touching 
with any other implement. When the 
earth can no longer be profitably heaved 
out of the ditch with the plow, that imple- 
ment should be used, without a mold-board 
to loosen tho soil, and the earth so moved 
carried out of the ditch on the adjoining 
land with the road scraper. No ditch ought 
to be of less width at the bottom th^n the 
ordinary road scraper; if it is, the poach- 
ing of cattle searching for water and tread- 
ing down the banks, soon fills it up.— Can- 
ada Farmer. 

Fabm Waom Must coub Down. — 
"The laborer is worthy of his hire," and 
we are decidedly in favor of paying all 
good, faithful workers the highest wages 
that can possibly be afforded. The farm 
cannot pay beyond a reasonable j)er cent- 
age of its products for workmen. The cost 
for freightage and other marketing expenses 
is about the same for wheat at 75c per 
bushel as for that sold at $1.50. But mak- 
ing ne allowance f.)r this, let us reckon the 
wages of laborers in wheat or other pro- 
duce which he must buy for bis family. 
Suppose we put the wages of good work 
men at four bushels of waeat per week 
with board, or five aud a half without 
board. This, with wheat at $1.50 per 
bushel, is $25.00 or $34.37 per month, if 
the employer sells his wheat and pays 
money. Is it just that be should piay the 
same money wages when his wheat brings 
only 75? The plain truth is ho cannot 
afford it He cannot give eight or eleven 
bushels of wheat for a wedtVl wark. 

If the laborer could feed his family two 
years ago on four bushels ot wheat per 
week, he can get along on less than double ! 
the quantity now, while the employer is j 
straiKhtwned for the means to pay interest, , 
purchase machinery or implemeais, stot^'k, ' 
etc. If laborers do not appreciate these • 
1 icts, aud moderate their demands ac- ; 
cordingly, farmers will, from absoluls ntces- 1 
sUy, be compelled to shorten sail, aud a ! 
large number of laborers will be thrown | 
out of employment. Evciy farmer will, ; 
of course, do the best he can to retain his ' 
well-tried men, and to keep some improve- ' 
ments going on. By the way, wa wonld 
like to receive from onr readers in differ- ' 
ent parts of ihe country, statements as to 
the number of bushels of wheat, and of ! 
com also, that have been equivalent to the 
average wages of farm Lands, with and 
without board, during each of the years 
1865, 18G7 and 1869; we refer to men em- , 
ployed by the month during the entire [ 
year. — American Acjriculturist. 

A Bushel o» Wheat fob a Pound of But* | 
TEB. — In some of the interior places of our i 
state we learn that wheat is down to forty- 1 
five cents per bushel, while in St. Paul a 
good article of butter sells readily at retail 
for the same price. After paying harvest 
hands from two to three dollars a day there 
is but little left tor the farmer who raises 
the great staple, after deducting price of 
seed, threshing. Ac. The expense of mar- 
keting is decidedly in lavor of dairy pro- 
ducts, since the forty-five cents' worth ol 
wheat weighs some sixty times as much as 
the batter. Here is another argument in 
favor of mixed husbandry, of tdl 
going into one kind of crop untu the mar- 
ket 13 completely over-stocked. If our 
farmers had raised only half as much wheat 
and a good oop of batter, cheese, pork, 
and beef, to say nothing of the great varie 
ty of little things that bring the cash, there 
would have been four times the money 
saved this year, as the wheat would h-ive 
brought double the price, with one-half the 
cosi.~St. Paul Presn.

Brief History of «Tat-8e-O.Kama," ' 
or the Ureat Wonder of tlte Ave. | 

When the troupe of Japanese Gymnasts ! 
visited Chicago in 1868, Mr. Campbell, who | 
has always an "eye to business," was 
struck with the peculiarly glossy appear- 
ance of their hair. One of the oldest 
members of the troupe, who, with a com- 
panion, was sauntering about town, 
chanced to drop into Mr. Campbell's store, 
and looking uloriely at his hair, Mr. Camp- 
bell became convinced that the Japanese 
knew something about the art of coloring 
heir. Consequently, on the day following 
he called on the Japanese interpreter, at 
the Tremont House," and stated his busi- 
ness, saying tha' if he was correct in his 
conjecture, he would willingly pay an ex- 
orbitant price for information that would 
be the means of driving the poisonous and 
filthy Hair Dyes from the American market. 
Tho interpreter informed him that one 
of the older members of the troupe had 
been iu former years chief hair-dresser to 
His Majesty the Tycoon, and that he whs 
in possessien of secrets in the art of color- 
ing hair, but that he w«is under obliga'.ions 
to his government not to reveal them. 
Through the kindness of the interpreter, 
Mr. Campbell was introduced to this per 
son, and made known his wishes. He was 
met by a refusal at once. Th\3 person, 
whose name, as many will remeinber, was 
O-wee geewee-nah, told Mr. Campbell 
that there were two kiuds of dyes made in 
Japan, one for coloring black aud the other 
for producing a brown effect; that the for- 
mer was in common use, while the latter 
was a "court aecret," and used only in the 
family of the Tycoon. 

Mr. Campbell determined to possess him- 
self ot this dye if possible, as nothing had 
ever been known in Europe or America 
ihat would color hair brown. He therefcie 
offered O-wee-gee-wee-nah a large sum of 
money for the secret, but he was ref ised. 
Shortly after this the left Chicago 
and went to New York, and Mr. Campbell 
followed them in a few days. He went im- 
mediately to the hotel where they were 
stopping, and set deliberately at work to 
accomplihh his purpose. He became inti- 
mately acquainted with every gymnast, at- 
tended their exhibitions nightly,iHtroduced 
them to his friends, drove them to the 
parks and places of public interest, and 
ingratiated himself thoroughly in their 

At length gaining their confidence he 
succeeded in obtaining a promise from O- 
wee-gee-wee-nah— that whenever they left 
the country he should have the secret, but 
only on condition that it should never be 
communicated to a third yjarty. The 
amount to be paid on surrender of the se- 
cret was fabulous. Mr. Campbell remain- 
ed in New York until the troupe was ready 
to sail. The hour was yet for communica- 
ting the desired information, and a bag, of 
twenty dollar gold pieces, was ready for de- 
li very when O-wee gee- wee nab was taken 
suddenly ill, and as he was like all his 
countrymen, superstitious, he regarded his 
I sickness as judgment on him for the act he 
I was about to commit, and here Mr. Camp 
I bell was foiled again. 

The troupe sailed for Europe, but Mr. 
Campbell was not to be deleatcd. His 
I agent started in the next steamer and over- 
hauled the gymnasts in London, uud fol- 
lowed them to Paris. Here their exhi- 
bitions were not as profitable, as they hud 
been, and here Mr. Campbell's agent bold- 
ly renewed his offer, increasing it by more 
than a thousand dollars in gold, and at 
last, in Paris, he was successful— he laid 
hands on the mighty secret and at once 
started on his return trip. 

Mr. Campball after thoroughly experi- 
menting with tho dye has put it upon the 
market. Persons have only to try it to be 
satisfied. The account here given reads 
more like fiction than truth, but a head of 
gray hair changed to the soft, glossy brown 
of youth, will convince the most skeptical 
that Mark Campbell in this, as in oth^r 
things, does no* humbog the people. This 
is the eighth wonder of the world. "Ja- 
panese Hair Dye" is prepared only at Mark 
Campbell's Hair Emporium, 81 South 
Clark St., Chioago, III , and is sold by all 
druggists everywhcTP. 

A Model Printing Ofllcc. 

In the Union Building is located one of the 
most attractive job printing establishments 
in the entire west, of which Messrs. P. L. 
Hansoom A Co. are the proprietors. Not 
least among those men who have sought 
and secured a hold upon the confidence and 
pivtrouage of tho buwne-s public, and 
achieved a success <n Chicago as merited as 
it is solid, is Mr. HauHcom. Some five 
years ago he opened a soiall office on Dear- 
born .Street, and, in a modest way. com- 
menced business, obtiining customers here 
aud there, steadily making friends. Hin 
plan of conductiug business was then, as 
it always has been, to give perfect satis- 
faction' and send out work unsurpassed in 
point of finish and workmanlike execution. 
The result was that fiiends and castomers 
multiplied, and tis business soon secessi- 
tatcd more room, as well as increased facil- 
ities, to keep pace with its demands. Far- 
well Hall Building was selected as a new 
base, and there he opened aud operated 
upon a much more extensive soale; when 
in the midnt of prosperity he lost his entire 
stock of materials and presses with 
the disastrous fire which oconrced 
to that building two years ago. It requir- 
ed, however, only a few hours to secare 
new quarters, and, with a new outfit, set 
tied down to business again — this time at 
Nos. 120 aud 130 LaSalle street An im- 
portant branch of hi-* business then, as 
now. was that of gummed and cut labels 
for druggists' use, and while at the last 
n;imed place he very largely extended his 
facilities for procuring business, soon suc- 
ceeding in obtaining cnstomers in all parts 
ot the country. The rapid growth of the 
business made it evident that still more 
room was needed for the prompt and 
efficient execution of his many orders. 
For this purpose he secured the mag- 
nificent h 11 over the Union National 
Bank, occupying 100 feet on Washington 
street and 60 feet on LaSalle. Seven steam 
presses are now kept constantly in use, and 
some forty of the best workmen to be ob- 
tained find steady employment. For the 
convenience of the public his counting- 
room (one of the finest offices in the build- 
ing), is located on the second floor, easily 
accessible from both Wa-ihing'on and La 
Salle streets. Here the energetic and ge- 
nial proprietor or his gentlemanly assistants 
mj^y always be found in readiness to supply 
the wants of customers, and when desired 
show them through the busy establish- 
ment. If there is a job printer in Chicag* 
who is deserving of widet^pread patronage 
it is Mr. Hanscom ; but tho fact that he 
has, from au humble start five years ago, 
succeeded in establishing one of the largest 
and finest job offices in the West, of itself 
speaks forcibly in his praise, and best illus- 
trates the character of himself aud his 

work. — Chicago Tribune.

The Novelty Clothes Wkinoeb. — "Take 
it ou trial with any and all others and keep 
the best," is what the proprietors of the 
' "Novelty Clothes Ringer" say, as will be 
seen by reference to their advertisement 
in another column. Nothing but the ut- 
most confidence in their own good^ and a 
full knowledge of what they bad to com- 
pete with, would warrant any manufacturer 
iu adopting so broad a jjlatfonn. This 
company have from the commencement 
guaranteed their wringers perfectly satis- 
factory in all cases, which may to 
some extent acccount for their great buc- 
cess. We are informed that their Rales of the 
"Novelty" alone amount to over a qwir!er 
of a million doUitrs annually. It should not 
be forgotten that this wringer has a place 
in our Premium List. Cog-wheels on both

The Legislature will be asked to allow twenty

boring towns. At Virginia City, Nevada, a fire 
wall was thrown down, door bells rung, clocks

in the lower levels of all the mines. It vibrated 
south, and lasted about teu seconds. At Keuo, 
the ihock, preceded by a low rumbling uDisc, 
lasted nearly two minutes, alarming the inhabit-

On the evening of the Sl-^t of Deeciubcr, I had 

beeu cherishing the humiliating and -solemn re- 

; flections which are peculiarly suitable to the close 

] of the year, and endeavoring to bring my mind 

, to tiiat view of the pa.-t best calculated to iuflu- 

I tnce the future. 1 had atteiupted to recall the 

I prominent incidents of the twelve months which 

had elapsed: and, iu this cudeavor I was led 

Ire'iueiitly to i egret how little my memory could 

retain even of thai mo-t imi>oi!unt to be rcmera- 

I bered I coald not a.-oid. at such apcriod, look- 

!iug forward as M*ll as backward, and aniicipa- 
ting that fearful tribunal at which no occurrence ! 
shall be forgotteu : while my imagination j.enc- 
! trated into the distant destinies which shiill be 
dependent on its <leci^ious. At my usual hour; I 
reiircd to re-t, but the train of uuditatii>n I had 
pu'sued was so important and ajvpropriate, that 
i imasinaiion continued it after sense had 
' slunrbcie i. "In thought:- frotn the visions of tht 
{ night, when deep sleei« lulleth upon man," I was 
I mentally concerned in the following scene of in- 

' t'^re.-t : , , ,• , 

I I ima-iined myself still adding, link after link 
! to the chain of reflection, the progress of which 
I the time for repose had inteirupted and while 
I thus euu'ivgi'd, 1 was aware that there remained 
but a few 'moments to complete the day. 1 heard 
the clock a^ it tolled the knell of another year: 
and, as it lung .-lowly the appoiuted number, each 
noie was followed by a sting of conscience, bit- 
terly reproaching me for my neglect of j.recious 
time. The last stroke was ringing in my cars— 
paiufu! as the groan, announcing the departure 
of a valuable friend- when, notwithstanding the 
meditative jiosture in which I was sitting. I per- 
ceived that the dimness of the apartment becaiue 
brighter, and looking up, >aw the light emanated 
from the eounicnauce of an angel, bnt the most 
acute observation was indicated by his piercing 
eve, aud inexorable justice was imprinted on his 
majestic features. A glittenng phylacteiy en- 
circled head, ui>on which was written- as in let- 
ters of fire, •• yVie F-ilili/ul One." Under oue 
arm he bore two volumes ; in his hand he held a 
pen I instantly knew the lecording angel — the 
secretary of the terrible tribunal of heaven. 
AVith a" tremblitig which eouvul.-ed my frame, 
I heaid his unearthly accents. ''Alortal," he said 
••thou wast longing to recall the events of the 
past vear— thou ait permitted to gaze upon the 
murder i record of tho books of God. Peruse and be 
i wise." As ho spoke thus, he o}>eaed before me 
-' one of the volumes which he had brought. In 
fearful apprehension, I read iu it my ortu name, 
and rocoguizcd the history of my own life du- 
ring the past year, with all its minutest particu- 
lars. Buining words were tbo-e which that vol- 
ume contained ; all the action? and circumstanc- 
es of my life were registered under their rc>pec- 
tive hea<ls in that dreadful b..ok. I was first

The New- Year's Mj;'»t *>f *" Uuhappy 

An «»ld man stood on a New Year's night al 
the window, and looked with the eye of lenjjthcn- 
iiig liapair ap to tlie immovable, eternal-bloom- 
ii.^ heaven, aud down upon the still,, 
buo* white earth, upon which now tiieie wis ao 
one so joyless and sleepless a.>^ he, for his grave 
was close by him ; it waa only concealed by the 
snow u.'ago, not by the green ot youth. He 
broa-ht with Lim nothing from the al>niid;ince 
«l lite but error, sii.s and sickness, a devastated 
L>.dy, a desolate sou!, abreast full of poison, and 
au a'-e full of repentance. His be.iuleous young 
d;!>s now returiiod a* spectres, and brought him 
back a/ain to that fair morniug on Tvbich his 
f.ithor.lor the lirM time, starting him ou the 
path of lite, which to the risjht leads upon the 
suu-path oi virtue iuto a wide and fiuiet land, 
full ot light and tiarvests, and full of .ingds, and 
whiihto the lett down into the laolu 
tracks of vice, into a dark cavern full of drip- 
ping poisons, full of serpents ready to dart upon 
their prey, and dismal with close exhalations. 

Ah! il.e serpent.s hung around his breast, and 
the poifon-drop upon his tongue, and he knew 
not where he wa.'. Distracted and unspeakably 
molancholy, he cried to the bc:ivens above: 
• Give me my youth again I Oh, father, put me 
upon the cross load again, that I may choose 

But his father and his youth were ^one long 
ai;o. He saw ihe i;/ii>i/i fitiinn Uance upon the 
m.Hir and (co out upon the graveyard, and he 
said : "They are my foidiah days." He saw a 
star .•hooting from the heavens ; he saw it glim- 
mer in its f.»!l and vanish upon tlio earth. 
'•That is m--," said his bleeding he.irt, and re 
nior-e. with its serpent fangs, deg deeper and 
deeper into his wounds. 

His glowing imagination pointed out to him 
the sleeping night waiter on the roof, and the 
wiud-mill rai.<ed its threatening arms to crush 
him. and a mask, which had been left in the 
charnel house, by degrees sssumed his own fea- 

Suddenly, in the midst of the conflict, the 
music for the New Tear flowed dowu from the 
tower as a distant anthem. He became less agi- 
tated : he looked around tise horizon, and over 
the! road earth, fathers of happy children, and 
l>.^ men,and hesaid: "Uh, I could .nlso 
hnire passed this first night in slumber, with dry 
eyes, as well as you, if I had wished to. Ah ! 
I miiiht have been happy. yebeloTed parents, it 
I h 1 1 'ulfilleJ your Now Year's wish and fach- 
ijgi.:» . 

Amid these fr rerish reeollentions ot "ii youth, 
it appeared tj him as if the mnsk with his own 
Itk.iKv:* rose up before him : at las* it w»s 
ch in^ed vthroiiirh the supcr.Mition which, on New 
Tear's night, soes ghosts and futurity,) into a 
living Touth. 

He could not look at it any more ; he corered 
his eye«. A thoasa id burning tears gushed 
forth' and vanished in the snow. Disconsolate 
and sorrowful, he sobbed in a low tone ; * Ob,

i Recuitomed to thiuk the e*timate of my g<)od

that many peiformanoes on which I bad looked 
b:iek Willi pride were omitted, "because," my 
visitor in foimed me, "the motive wa.* impure." 
It was, however, wiih feelings of the most affcol- 
ing gratitieation I read beneath this record, 
s-mall a? it was. the following passage : \yhoso- 
evcr shall give a cull of cold water only iu the 
name of a disciple, he shall in no wise lose his 
reward. ^ 

Whi!e I saird on many other similar records, 
such was the intense feeling ivhich seemed to be 
awakened within me that my brain grew dizzy, 
aud my eye became dim. I was awakened from 
this 5rutc'l>y the touch of my supernatural iu- 
structer, who po"urcd me to the volume in which 
I had read my own terrible history, now closed, 
and bearing a seal, on which, with sickening 
heart. I read the inscription, "Ke.-crved until the 
i>ay of Judgment." "Ami now." said the angel, 
"my commission is completed Thou hast been 
permitted what w..,s never granted to mau bcfote. | 
Wbiit thinkst thou of the record? Dost not just- I 
Iv tremble? How many a line is here, which.' 
'dying, you could wish to blot !' I see you al- I 
readv shuddering at the thought of the diselos- : 
ure of this volume at the day of judgment, when , 
an Rssomlded world shall listen to its contents. 
But if sueh be the record oi o»e year, what must 
be the ^"'"7 orv-vrr irAo e life"! t"eek, then, an 
interest in the bK>o.l of Chri>t, justified by which, 
you shall indeed hear the repoiition, but n<.t to 
condemnation. P.ay that, when the other books 
are opened your name may be found ia the book 
of life. And see the volume prepared for the 
historv of another year ; yet its page is unsul- 
lied. 'Time is before thee— seek to improve it : 
privilege.- are t>elore thee — mar they prove the 
gateof heaven: judgment is before thee — pre- 
pare to meet rhy «od." He turned to : 
and a« I seemed to hear the rustling which an- 
noun.'L-d his flight. I awoke — was it all a dream?
