The Committee on War Claims has
refusc'l to allow the claim of the trus
tee" of the 1'rotestant Orphan Asylum
of Natchez, Miss., for damages and loss

deeply sympathize w ith the chumants,

An appropriation of $15.(HH) is au
thorized by Mr. Taylor's hill to estab

along the Teunes-ee river iw maybe
neccsary for the proper protection of
the navigation of the river. There is
a deposition evident on the part of
the committee to extend this light
system to such of the important rivers
as may, in the interests of commerce,
require it. As is well known, it has
proved quite successful on tho Missis
sippi and other rivers, and for the

Tho Semite Commit too on Military
Allium, recommend that the corporate
authorities of Clisttunonga be allowed
the right to use a part of tho Govern
inent reservation for n Htreet or road
way. At the instance of the War De
partment it is provided, however, that
the city must construct and keep in
repair a road equal to that built by the
government connecting the city with
the National Cemetery.
Mississippi cities are also in the road
husincKS, hut at the expense of the
government. In the Military Com
mittee of the House there are two
propositions of this kind. Vicksburg
asks nn appropriation of f i."(HI for the
repair ami preservation of the road
lending to the National Cemetery, and
Corinth wants f.VHH) to construct a
miu'iuhimir.ed road to the National
Cemetery near that town.
Although 1 recently gave in this
correspondence the substance of the
House report on tho proposed yellow
fever commission, it may not be nmlss
to follow it up with a portion of the
report of the Senate Committee on
Kpidemie Diseases, particularly as the
report ha been prepared by a Senator
who represent a State which has suf
fered so greatly from this plague.
"The creation of this commission is
recommended because satisfactory ev
idence has been furnished to the com
mittee that probably a very important
discovery has been made by reason of
experiments which have been encour
aged by the governments of Mexico
and 1'ia'zil which, if available, would
be of incalculable benelit to the peo
ple of tho l'nitcd States, both from a
fiiiinaniturian ami a commercial point
of view. The committee is aware that
this legislation is necessarily cxcri
nicnta!. but believing that it is proba
blv productive of such important result-,
they feel justified in recommend
ing that the government of tho I'nited
St.itcK shiMilo contribute to the ell'orls
being made by other governments in
securing the inestimable lieiielltsof
protection of our people against the
terrible calamity of yellow -lever epi
demic. While it is true that
in the later periods of our history
only tl o southern sections of our
country have been visited by yellow
fever epidemics, yet there has been a
period when the important cities ami
tovnof the North have been ntllieted
by tiiis terrible visitation, and
although the preponderance of medi
cal opinion attributes the recurrence
of yw ii iw-fever epidemics to importa
tion -f that disease from foreign
countries, yet it cannot be stated as
an absolute and established fact that
any citv, North or South, is to onjov
Unit exemption in the future that it
has in the past. In this country yellow-lever
has appeared eighty-eight
diUcrciM times, and has prevailed in
twenty-lour States of tho t'liion.
"Aii-'ther alarming fact was devel
oped in the course of tho epidemic of
I n7s, which p-evailed in a huge see
tinn ot .inr country. Owing to the iu
creiwci! ami rapid means of communi
cation, that epidemic traveled to the
limit- i f the Western States, and it is
the opinion of high medical authority
that the West escaped invasion only

iHiloro the J'jvubytery ol Ixmisville,

the course, of Homo remarks revealed
bia animus as a desire to break down
the C'ftriAltan Olmmrr an a religious

try to play thnrp on the accumxl by
ringing tlio charged on this af('in
"Fulap.ly and deceitfully denying in
the Mi'inihia Appkal ol OctolMr I'f),
1KHT), that the Cltrinlian (Mmrr has for
many years borne a bad reputation as
to veracity, and that it haa been, with
great unanimity and persistency, so
denounced for many years by all the
leading tiewspapers of our church, and
several iK'yond its bounds."
We receive all the Southern l'reshy
briaii newspapers, and a pretty large
list of others, and the suggestion that
tho Oliwnvr was not a truthful paper
baa never come to our notice, except
possibly in the New Orleans frcl)iili
rian. The editor of that paper went
with bis carpet-bag from the neighbor
hood of Mr. Wilmot l'mviso, in Penn
sylvania, to the city from w hich Ones

and he does not seem to acclimate well.
Ho is a neaceablo man, when ho is
asleep. Wo think wo remember that
ho charged falsehood on the CTiW
.iViii Ouierw-r, and the impression
we had at the titno was that he wiia
slightly madder than usual, and that
he did not really meuii it. There is
nothing that gives a malicious man a
greater scope for his malice than the
charges and specilleations of an
ecclesiastical prosecution. This case
against tho Messrs. Converse is quite
similar in its spilefulneHS to tho one
filed against Dr. Talniage a few years
ago, tho animus of winch was sup
posed to bo jealousy. The prone
ciitora of the Messrs. Converse vary
their charge into twenty-six sprcitica
t ions and forms of statement with no
apparent motive, for tho number and
variety except tho pleasure it gives
theui to call those excellent brethren
liar twenty-six times. Such things
are sickening to the heart of every
ono who loves the Iird, nnd they are
as ruinous to tho cause of Christ as
anything that man can do can he.

Two distinguishi-l writers have just

Thus ltuskiu: "Voltaire His work is,
in comparison with gxsl literature,
what nitric acid is to wine, and sul
phuroted hydrogen to air. Literary
chemists cannot but tae account of
the sting and stench of him; but ho
has no place in the library of a thought
ful scholar. Every man of sense
knows more of the world than Vol
taire can tell him ; and what he w ishes
to express of bucIi knowledge he will
say without a snarl." Mr. Ixiwell,
looking back iion literary history
from another point of view, mentions
the Frenchman as one "who, if he
used ridicule too often for the satisfac
tion of personal spite, employed it also
for sixty years in the service of truth
and justice, and to him more than to
any other one man we owe it that we
can now think and speak as we choose.

we owe him that, and it is surely
Fiikheiiic Aik n Kit, the distinguished
musical critic, is not altogether favor
ably impressed with the recent pro

Archer says: "Tho plot of Lnl.iy is
made up of well-worn material, and
its stupid incidents arc so thoroughly
familiar to opera goers that they have
ceased to arouse any interest. Like
many more illustrious predecessors,
Delilies, therefore, labors under a dis
tinct disadvantage in treating a hope
lessly inane libretto. Tho general
performance of the work by those on
the stugo did not riso uIkivo tho ama
teur level, save in one or two occa
sional instances, and there was a me
chanical restraint everywhere discern
ible. To return to M. Delilx-s's music,
it may be summarized as a series of
elegant and graceful thoughts of no
great intensity and not remarkable
for individuality, Anbcr, (iounod mid
Biw't being frequently laid under
contribution. Nevertheless, M. Deli
bes is an adept in modern French
methods of orchestration and employs
his knowledge in this respect with
consummate judgment, indeed to this
circumstance much of his music owes
its chief charm.

For many years I waa a suffbrer with ean
eer of the nose, and having been cured by
the use of S. S. 8.. I feel constrained by a
ser.se of duty to suffering humanity to make
this statement ot my ease. Willi me four
teenth bottle the eancer began to heal rai
idiy and soon disappeared, and for several
months there has been no appearance of a
sore of any kind on ray nose ur face, neither
is my nose at all tender to the touch. I
have taken about two dozen bottlciof S. 8. S.
I am soundly cured, and I know that S. S.- ti.
effected the cure after every known remedy
was tried and hud failed. ..

I had heard of the wonderful cures of
Swift's .Specific, and resolved to try it. I
commenced taking it in April, 18M My
general health was much Improved, but the
cancer which was in my brea-t continued to
grow slowly but surely. The bunch grew
and became quite heavy. I le t that I must
either have it cut or die. But it commenced
discharging quantities of almost black,
thick blood. It continued healing around
th edges until February, when it was en
tirely healed n,. and weh.BETaiywpoI)
