RECRUITING IN BOSTON FOR THE
NAVY AND ARMY.
From the Boston Traveller, April 12.
On Monday, an office for tbo shipping of sea
men for the navy was opened on Hanover
street by Mr. Moses Installs, a well known ship
ping agent, who is acting under the directions
of Capt. Robert Handy, of the navy. Notice
having been pretty extensively given, some
hundreds of persons appeared on that day for
tho purpose of enlisting, and up to this time
the work of enlistment is going on as rapidly
as possible.
When the office closed vestorday, 93 men
had been enlisted, most of whom wero first-class
seamen, and by to morrow night the number
will be 130 or 140. Among tho applicant;)
have been a very large number of young men
from the country, who have been out of work,
and are willing to take up with anything that
offers.
From tho crowds around the doors, thoso
within the office from time to time let in tho
healthiest looking men, who are one by one
sent to the room of Commodore Handy, and ex
amined by him. If found suitable, they are at
once enlisted, furnished with clothing, and sent
to Charlestown.
Every time a door opens, dozens beg to be
let in, and so great is the pressure that police
men are employed to keep them back. Large
numbers of those from the country are entirely
destitute of money, and some havo already re
turned home, having no means to pay for board,
without having been able to get insido the of
fice. The enlistment will probably continue seve
ral weeks, as it is understood that 2,000 men,
in all, are wanted immediately for the navy,
and it will take that time to get the required
number, although offices nro also open in other
cities. So particular are the recruiting officers,
that a man who had served in the British navy
as an able seaman was rejected because he had
lost a linger on the left band.
The recruiting office for the army in Port
land street is doing about the usual amount of
business. The enlistments since July last
have averaged about seventy per month, and
thus far, this month, the proportion is about
the same, although the number of applicants
has been somewhat larger, ns many who have
been rejected at the naval shipping office after
wards apply here.
Only a small proportion of tho applicants are
found suitable. This winter, in consequence
of the scarcity of work, nn unusually large
proportion of Americans have been enlisted
many of them shoemakers and they havo
' generally been an excellent class of men.
While in New York there are many German
applicants, and few Irish, the reverse is the case
here; but many of that nation are rejected be
cause they do not come up to the required
standard five feet four and a half inches.
Were tho Government to reduce the standard
two inches, the number of enlistments could be
doubled; and the fact that this is not done in
dicates that there is no desire to greatly in
crease the army.
Heretofore, recruits have been nllowcd to
enter such arm of the servico as they chose,
but two days ago a circular was roceived re
quiring that enlistments must be unconditional.
The men who nro enlisted are kept in tho office
till a squad of ten or twelve is made up, when
they are sent to Governor's Island, New York,
ana from thence to tho several stations.
FOREIGN ITEMS.
TheFrenchline-of-battle ships are completely
overhauled and refitted every two years.
The expense of the command of a first-class
hip, in the British navy, a personal tax on the
commander, is said to bo about 700 per an

edy this injustice.
American mineral teeth aro said to be the

their commercial muriuo to 327 ships, but, in

weekly, a list of articles which havo been lost

The salt formed in tho boilers of a large

posed to ridicule Smith's numerous specula
tions, and the latter afterwards, in a very se
vere speech, retorted, saying, among other

taken him (Buckstone) for some old washer
woman, had he not known that he (Buckstone)
held the position be did at the Haymarket
Theatre.

DR. SCUENCK, the Lung Doctor The Pro
prietor of SCHENCK'S PULMONIC SY
RUP, the inventor of SCHENCK'S RESPIROME
TER, the only instrument that can to a certainty
detect the slightest murmur of the respiratory
organs.
This Is of great Importance to Dr. SCUENCK,
to know the exact condition of the lungs, whether
it is Tuberculous, Pulmonary, Bronchial, Pleu
ritic, or Dyspeptic Consumption, and whether it
is both lungs or only one that are diseased.
It requires constant and long practice to be
come familiar with every sound or rattling of a
diseased bronchial tube. Patients come to Dr.
SCUENCK to get examined that havo been ex
amined by tbelr family physician, who told tbem
that their lungs were almost gone ; when, by a
closo examination with the Rosplrometer, it is
often found that it is an affection of the bron
chial tuhe, and, by getting a healthy action of
the liver and tone to the stomach, the sufferer is
soon restored to health. Sometimes medicine
that will stop a cough is certain death to the pa
tient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation
of the blood: hemorrhage follows, and, in fact,
stopping the action ot the very organs that
caused the cough.
Liver complaints and Dyspepsia are the causes
of two thirds of the cases ot Consumption. Per
sons are at this time complaining with dull pain
In the side, bowels sometimes costive anil some
times too loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoul
der blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at
other times drowsy; everything that is eaten lies
heavy on the stomach ; aciaity, belching up
wind. Hundreds are complaining at this time
In this way. Let them take a heavy cold, and,
before they get rid of it, then auotber, then is
the time to know what to do, then is the time to
go to Dr. SCUENCK and get jour lungs exam
ined, then is the time to know what cough med
icine to take. Stop that cough sudden, and then
the lungs, liver, and stomach, are all put into an
inactive state, and, before the patient is aware
of his situation, the lungs are a mass of sores,
and death must soon follow.
SCHENCK'S " PULMONIC SYRUP" is an ex
pectorant which does not contain any opium,
nor anythlrg calculated to check a cough sud
denly, but, when assisted by the SEAWEED
TONIC, to improve the lone of the stomach, and
restore a litallby action of the digestive organs,
with the MANDRAKE PILLS, to bring about a
healthy action of the bvor. Wlien these are ta
ken together, or as indicated, tney are sure to
bring the constitution Lack to a healthy state
when affected by any of the above discuses. Dr.
SCUENCK believes that too much cannot be said
In favor ot the curative poners ot the MAN
DRAKE PILLS. Their action Is peculiar, but
certain, In nil cases of torpid bowels or diseased
liver, which is too frequently the primary cause
of a broken-down condition of the n hole system,
and often passes under the name of CONSUMP
TION, when that disease does not exist at all, or
II It does, is readily curable by a proper atten
tion to restoring a healthy action ot the stomach,
liver, and other functions, whose duty it is to
eliminate and carry off the unhealthy deposits
which clog and render sluggish tho wheels of the
animal organism.
Schcnck's Pulmonic Syrup will prolong life
sometimes several months, by keeping the bron
chial tubes free from the putrid matter which
impedes their lunctions, when the lungs are too
far gone to cure There Is no medicine that can
cure Consumption when both lungs are much
diseased, and Dr. Schcnck would rather every
one would know their true couditlon before ta
king bis medicine.
lie treats no diseases but those of tho Lungs,
Liver, and Stomach, and makes no charges lor
advice, or examiniug lungs lu the ordinary way,
or as physicians generally do ; but for n thorough
examination with the Uupirometer he charges
three dollars, and wishes every one, rich or poor,
that has a Cough, Pain In the Side or Shoulder
blade, troubled with Coslivcucss or Diarrhoea,
Sallow Complexion, Loss of Appetite, Low Spir
its, Reetleasntss at Night, or any other disease
leading to Consumption, to call ou him as above
and get his advice.
Often, a twenty.five cent box of SCHENCK'S
MANDRAKE PILLS will remove the cause of
this great terror of the country Consumption.
All of Dr. SCHENCK'S medicines are prepared
under his own supervision, and sold, wholesale
and retail, at his principal office in Philadelphia,
No. 39 north Sixth street.
Price of the PULMONIC SYRUP, $1 per hot
tie, or six bottles for 5. SEAWEED TONIC
