D R. JAMES PORTER, MAGNETIC
and Medieal lPhysician, will remain
in New Orleans, at No. 167 St. Charles
street, until the coming June, and all I1
who are suffering from Chronic Rheu
latltsis, or a l y Chronic complaint, 01
should imineliately place themselves
under his treatment, as, from my own
experience, he is sure to afford relief
if the disease is not too far advanced, a
permanent cure. Fc
His charges are very moderate, and I
am glad to certify that, after nearly
eight years of constant suffering fromi T
Chronic Rheumatism, (the last three
years of which time the torture both Fc
day and night has been excrutlating,)
and after being treated by many of our W
most eminent and skillful Physicians.
I placed nmyself under the treatment of W
Da. PORTER about the 1st of last Feb

during the whole of which ttme I con

A STORY O? CHANCELLOR BISMARK'S
1- In a recent number of the Boersen T
e Courier, of Berlin, a paper whose title thei
d may be presumed to indicate its fi. priv
;- nancial, solid, Mnatter-of-fact and pret
i- trust-worthy character, there is an 18 a
n incident related of Prince Bismark's and
- domestic life Which, if true, is fairly Ave
d interesting. Most people who read the
the newspapers have heard somewhat ted,
o of the great chancellor's daughter. note
The young lady, though not beauti- bee,
I fill, is amiable, accomplished, and felt
o accustomed to the homage of the ly
high society in which she moves. well
d With her father she's been a great fa- ene<
o vorite ever since she grew up. When a b
d in Berlin he has been wont to spend whi
a with her whatever leisure moments **
>- he could snatch from his laborious turn
occupations, and in the country his gen
11 idle hours have been usually passed had
I in her society. The prince observed brei
d with concern that his daughter re- nen
it pelled all proposals of matrimony C
n made to her. Though wooed by the barn
e most eligible suitors, among them him
the heirs of the richest families, she
members of the most ancient nobili- er's
ity, gentlemen filling the highest of- nice
ficial positions, even prince, the arti
e young lady declined them all, After hail
is brooding for a long time over the pro;
ie possible reasons of his daughter's ble
in conduct, the chancellor believing at Ma.
tr last that he had fathomed the secret
e, of her severity, opened his heart to can
le her on the subject, He told her he
c- felt sure that she must have become
profoundly attached to some person sha
r; inferior to herself in position and
sh wealth. He then legged her to men- tha
tion the name of the man to whom
she had given her heart, as he, her
ur father, was rich enough and powerful
.s enough to change the conditions sell
he which might seem to render her lov- eat
g. er an ineligible match, With flow- by
Is, ing tears, the young lady confessed
that she did cherish such an affec- rig
n- tion as her father suspected, an af- too
fection that was returned, but that no
her lover was a simple lieutenant in wo
the army. The next day the lieu- for
or tenant appeared in the presence of an'
s the father. The chancellor hardly To
In gave him time to speak before say- hif
ing: "I know why it seems to you thi
a impossible to become my son-in-law; pe
notwithstanding the difference of so
cial position, your wish shall be ac- ri
an complished, Though I do not know te,
siryou, the love of rmy daughter is to in
ime sufficient guarantee of your TI
n worth." But instead of the joyful Y°
aa thanks which the prince naturally "ir
expected, be received a reply of the to
following tenor:. "I thank you for
ok. your infinite goodness, but this iinion "
is impossible. I belong to an old
Catholic family. I cannot take home at
"ta- as my wife the daughter of him
ers whom my family regard as an enemy tY
of the church, whom I myselfam al
modt compelled to look upon as
nd such." The officer then sadly took hi
his departure, leaving the chancellor
nd utterly confounded, who had little gi
ars anticipated such a reception of his P1
due condescension. tl
of Having summoned his daughter, i
tie; the chancellor told her that the offi
has cer wholly refused her hand, and that I
,ril- she must forget him. The daughter, o
ys becoming paler than ever, replied:w
"He is too honorable to deny his re-n
eps ligious faith. I will not ask of him c
em. such a sacrifice, and if he desire it, I, o
p less believing than he, will adopt his lI
in- religion to render our marriage pos- o
sible." The father saw his child be- '
ody come more inconsolable from day to e
Sis day, and at length he was thrown in
to a state of fearful excitement, I
sn't which was not without consequences.

is true, it is fairly interesting. We

Two women at least, have secured
their rights and have now all the

18 and 20, had a patp who was rich,
and who lived in grand style on Fifth

notwitlhstarding the fact that they

felt their poor father's distress keen
ly. The old gentleman's trouble so
weighed upon his mind that he sick
ened and took to his bed, and got in
a bad way generally. The house in
which he lived was fortunately in his
wife's name, so they could not be
turned out of doors, but as the old
gentleman had sunk every dollar he
had in the world, the question of
bread and butter became an immi
One morning the old gentleman's
barber did not come around to shave
him, and Ella, the eldest girl,' said
she could do it. She took her fath

nicely and neatly as any tonsorial
artist could do it, and dressed his
hair and trimmed his whiskers, and
propped him up in bed as comforta

Mary, the youngest.
t "Ella, if you can shave papa, you
can shave any other man."
"True," said Ella.
S"If you can shave a man, I .can
shave a man,"
"True, once more. But what has

"Ella, do you want to starve?"
r "No, my child."

eat each day. Let us stop all this
by-starting a barber shop."
d Ella saw the point. The two girls
riggedup an extempore chair. They
, took their coachman, whom they had
it not yet dismiissed, because he
n wouldn't go, and they shaved him
for practice, and dressed his hair,
) and trimmed his beard every day.
To accommodate them, he brought
his friends in, and in a week's time
the girls were accomplished and ex
