This Distressing Affection which renders Life
miserable and marriage Impossible is the penalty
paid by the victims of improper Indulgences.
Young persons are too apt to commit excesses

that may ensue. Xow, who that understands

Improper habits than by the prudent ? Besides

What a pity that a young man, the hope of his
country, the darling f his parents, should be
snatched from all prospects And enjoyments of
life, by the consequence of deviating from the
path of nature and indulging iu a certain secret
habit. Such icrso;is utrsT before contemplating
rcSeel tbst a sound mind and body are the most
necessary requisites to promote connubial happi
ness. Iudeed without these, the Journey through
life lieeomes a weary pilgrimage; the prospect
hourly darkens to the view ; the mind becomes
shadowed with despair and tilled with the melan
choly reflection, that the happinesi of another
become blighted with our own.
A CERTAIN' DISEASE.
When the misguided and imprudent votary of
pleasure tinds that he has imbibed the seeds of
Hi is painful disease, it too often happens that an
ill-timed sense of shame, or dread of discovery,
deters him from applying to those who, from
duc.ition aud respectability, can alone befriend
him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms ot
this horrid disease make their appearance, such
as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose, noctural
pain in the head and limbs, dimness of eight,
deafness, nodes on the shin bones aud arms,
blotches on the head, face and extremities, pro
gressing with frightful rapidity, till at last the
palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fall
!n. and the victim of this awful dieae becomes
a horrid object of commiseration, tiil death puts
a period to his dreadful suffering, by sendiug
him to "that Undiscovered Country from whence
no traveller returns."
It is a melancholy fact that thousands DIE
victims to this terrible disease, .through falling
into th hands of Ignorant or unskillful PRE
TENDERS, who, by the nse of that deadly Poi
son, Mercury, &c, destroy the constitution, and
ir.capiible of curing, keep the unhappv sufferer
mouth after month taking their noxious or In
jurious compounds, and instead of being restored
to a renewal of Life Vigor and Happiness, in des
pair leave him with ruined Health to sih over
his galling disappointment.
To such, therefore, Dr. Johnston pledges him
self to preserve the most Inviolable becreev, and
from hii extensive practice and observations iu
the great Hospitals of Europe, and the first in
bis country, vir. : England, France, Philadelphia
and elsewhere, is enabled to offer the most cer
Jain. speedy and effectual remedy In the world
for all diseases of imprudence.

A charming woman, I've heard it said

But all in vain I puzzle my hem'

; Her face, indeed, is pretty enough
i And her form i? quite as good as the be-f,
i Where nature has given the bony stuff,
; And a clever milliner all the rest.
Intelligent ? Yes, in a certain way ;
I With the feminine gift of ready speech,
j And knows very well what not to say
j Whenever the theme trauscends her reach,
j But turn the topic on things to wear,
I From an opera cloak to a robe (te mtit
nats, basques, or bonnets 'twill make yon stare
! To ee how fluent the lady can be.
j Her laugh is hardly a thing to please ;
I For an honest laugh must always start
! From a glecsoine mood, like a sudden breez,
I And bet's is purely a matter of art
; A muscular motion made to show
What nature designed to tie beneath
i The tiner month ; but what tan she do,
! If that is ruined to show the teeth 1
J To her seat in church a good half mile j
I When the d:iy is fine she is sure to go,

La ni'Hh dc Pari bus got to show :
j And she puts) her hand on the velvet pew
! (Can bauds so white have a taint of sin !)
And thinks how her prayer book's tint of blue
i Mut harmonize with her milky skin f
Ah ! whot sh.ill we say of one who walks
Iu fields of flowers to choose the weeds ?
Reads authors f whom she never talks,
Aud talks of authors she uever reads J
She's a charming womaii, I've heard it said.
By other women as light as she ;

THE EO.E CABIX.
J I had ridden hard and fast, and was as
I touishud to lind myself coming into a strag
! Hug settlement. On the course which I
j should have taken there was nothing of the
sort. Almost any traveler in the border
sections would have been glad to thus stum
ble upon a place for food and refresh meat.
Not so with myself. In the breast pocket
of my coat I carried live thousand four
hundred and ninety odd dollars, Uniled
States money. I had received this amount
from Major General T. M. Lacy, aud it
was to be carried through to Fort I, ,
aud placed in the hands of Colonel Asa F.
j Southard, to defray necessary army ex
'Get through at your best gait Carnes,'
said the Major, 'the money is long since
over due. and Southard's rare irascible tem
per mutt have been tried to the utmost.
You know how the soldiers get to growling
if Uuele Sam is at all delinqueut in paying
up. Ride in a careless manner, but careful.
1 don't think that any one dreams of the ar
rival of this myney save, of course, the
until agent and the clerk who delivered me
'he puckagei.' "
I was directed overan unfamiliar section,
hence my losing of the right route. I con
sidered it my safest plan, so long as I had
blundered upou the settlement, to boldly
cuter and rest, us an ordinary traveler
would do. Should I push hurriedly u, 1
might by that very act, excite suspicion.
There were only two men iu the bar-room
when 1 entered, the landlord and the host
ler. Under his familiar cordiality the land
lord furtively eyed lue iu a manner that
made me wish that 1 was well done with
my job, but I re assured my sell with the
thought that it was Hie couciousness of
the responsibility reposing upon me that
caused bis glances to disturb me. Before I
had finished my upper, two more travelers
j rode up, called for the hostler, and ordered
drinks, or rather one of them came in with
the orders, aud the other threw himstlt
down ou a bench outside, aud began load-
j jug a huge pipe. Strolling carlessly ttbout

i window. Sly heart leaped into my throat,
for in the man outside 1 recognized from
the description ot him Bill Wolf one of
the most desperate characters that ever
figured in the annals ot border ruffianism.
; There was the huge red moustache, and
thick, hairy throat, aud the shoulders
hunched up nround his head, suggesting
the shape of a mammoth clam and the
voice with a deep down intonation like the
plop, plop, plop of water hurriedly leaving
a jug. If the description of the notorious
renegade is inelegant, it has the merit of
truthfuluess, und must, therefore, bo ex
cused. I went through my supper in form, but
whatever appetite I might have felt upon
J my entrance into the inn, had vanished

fellow came in, having been out, ho said, to

whatever, I felt my spirits rise with hope
that I should make a safe transit. It was
quite duikish outside, but the hostler was
Hitting about the stable with his lantern,
which emitted but a little more effulgent
light than a while beau would have done,
but he graciously brought out my steed at
the order, aud, mounting, I thankfully trot-

well out upon the plains and into the right
trail before that time. The animal went
t aloug at au assuring gatt, and I was teel-
ing iuliniteiy relieved at tuy providential
escape from contact with the desperate
characters whom I had left at the settle-1
uient, when my acute trained, ever alert
ears detected tho sound of swift riding. Iu
which direction ? From behind me, as the
mildly floating breeze blew from thatqnar
: ter. The fiicc of the prairie iu the section
was a little rolling, but not so as to afford
auy bhelier, and not a shrub or bush dotted
; the expanse tor miles.
I drew my horse up for one moment to
Iibten. No chance traveler ever rodo like
that. It meant pursuit.
I gave my steed a gallant lash, and she
broke into a convulsive gait, hove he body
j up with one or two plunges, stumbled, go
ing down upou her knees to her uose, aud
pitched mo literally heels over head. For
an itistaut I was paralyzed with astonish

brief mishap undergone a Strang mctamor-

phosis. She had lost her white face on or
in the grass, and, passing my hand between
her eyes, I found the hair was wet. In an
instant I was examining the-white legs and
face - and found these pticky with white
wash. What then ? Simply tny trappings
had been transferred to another animal, got
ten up to exactly represent mine in the eve
nins. This discovery brought an appalling
interpretation of the coming horseman. I
gave the horso tho whip as soon as his un
stable legs were well under him, and sent
him scouring on ahead, while I ran off to
the right, making for a little hollow, near a
shallow, dry ravine. Here to my profound
astonishment, I discovered a lone cabin, or
hut, about the dimensions of an ordinary
country log house, and impulsively dashiug
up to this, I ave a rapid succession of
knocks. A shrinking, pale and cowering
woman opened it.
'What is it V was her first question, no
ticing my breathless haste !
Had I stopped for a moment's reilection
upon the straugely isolated position of the
cabin. I should not hare pushed in by her
with' tho explanation :
'Is there a chance to hide here my
horre has thrown me and I believe a party
of desperadoes are close up with me.
I noticed that -the moon was corning up
dry and red in the east, when she mechani
cally closed the door behind me, before I
had fiuished my explanation.
'No, no ! tht-re'is no place,' she gasped,
her quick ear now catching the sound of the
coming horsemen. 'This is all the room
there is and there's neither cellar nor
'But this ? I exclaimed, rushing for a
dark object in the corner.
'It's a colliu,' was her quick response ;
'but there's no other chance they are
turning up to the door get in.'
I had barely time to place myself in this
receptacle for the dead, when a hoarse voice
one that I knew by description which I
had had of it, called out
'Here you I)ick.r
The woman threw her aprou over her
head aud wcut to the door.
'Where's Dick ?'
'He has'nt come back yet,' returned the
'Oh, he hain't Jen, hcv you Iiurd a

'I guess,' she said, nnd then paused,
'you can hear the horse now,' feigning to
But Biil Wolf must have been of a suspi
cious nature. I heard hitn leap from his
horse and strike with a jarring plunk upon
the sod. A smouldering fire was burning
on the stove hearth. I could imagine Bill's
attitude lie had a hand on each door cas
ing, his brutal head was thrust inside the
room ; he was peering about the apart
ment. 'What in h 1 ia that ?' he questioned ;
and my heart stood still, for I knew he
spoke of my retreat.
'It's StaufTer's cofTJu. Dick is going to
carry il over to-nighf.'
'Stuff I' ejaculated the desperado, 'as
be made his bed, so let him lav buzzard"
are the sextons for the likes o' him.'
The woman sort of groaued, and when I
heard Wolf go up and juggle the rain bar
rel at the corner of the cabin, and finally
go away with the remark :
'lie han't fur off; he couldn't stick to
that blind critter when he began ter hur

gasji'd the woman ; 'they will be back in

'But with him inside the house we

may well believe.
'It is death with you anyway !' moaned
she, 'for I hear the rattle of Dick's axles
'Slay, there's the rain barrel.' r-aid I in
desperation, 'they've tried that once, they
may not again.'
And before you would be able to speak a
sentence, the water was dashed out of the
cask and stealing down into the arid soil, I

a tub half filled with water in at the top as
She had barely time to enter the house,
the door of which fortuuatcly, opened on
the side away from the moon, when a rat
tling vehicle drew up at the door, and I
heard a voice raving and swearing at the
woman for something done or undone, and
then from the bunghole, the plug having
been disloged in the upsetting of the cask,
I saw the furious return of the three rene
gades. There was a good deal of loud talking, and
explanations, and oaths, and stirring up of
hot nectar, und rough remarks about the
cotlin in tho corner ; but Dick and tho wo
man both seemed sore about that matter,
and thrt man jicremptorily refused to join
the hunt because of tho coffin.
'Well, you're goiug our way a piece.'
said Wolf; 'likely enough you'il have the
fun of seeing us wing the turkey.'
The conversation was distressingly per
sonal, made acutely so by Dick's asking :
'Is there enough water out there. Jen,
to drink my horse ?'
I'll see,' she returned, moving slowly
i over the door sill, aud then leaping to the
cask she lifted out the tub and tipped my
prison over a little so that I could spring
out. I was behind the cask when Dick came
to the door, and chirruped up his beast to
the tub to diitk.
'I'll go with you as far as the forks,' ho
said, as two of them came out with the cofDn
and slid it iuto tho body of the wagon. They
then stepped back, probably to call the
At that moment a wild and desperate plan
entered my brain, but feeling lor my Kniio i
found thi.t it was missing, along with the
belt to which it was attached. In the sud
den jostle which tho falling steed had given
me, the girdle had been snapped aud lost
without my knowledge. The horses of the
three reuegades -my own, which had been
retained by the hostler at tho inn, among
them were hitched on the further side of
the door where the moon-lipht, striking by
the end of the cabin, rested fully upon them.
It was suicide to attempt seizing oue of
them ; but as the woman with some pur

liquor which she had mixed, I seized the
only alternative. I sprang lightly into the
wagon, lifted the coffin lid. and agaiu crawl
ed into the long, narrow prison.
There was no choice. The Hood of moon
light had swept so far towards my hiding
place that only a part of my body was con
cealed by the barrel, and I knew that dis
covery was inevitable, for the man's horse
stood in such a position that in order to re
cover the reins he must have trodden upon
me ; and there was no earthly thing as f ir
as the eye could reach over the plniu, be
hind which a man could hide. Ah, but
what if he should re adjust his freight ? Can
you think how my heart pumped away at
the thought? You wonder what my plan
could be ? I hud none, other than the hope
of having only one man to deal with, if ho
went on his way as he calculated. The
three ruffians were mounted and all were
about to start, when the woman r.-'n out
with some sort of a blanket and muttered
something about covering the coffin. The
man yelled out to mind her busiuess and
let. the thing alone.
She retreated with the cloth, but eha had
accomplished her purpose. In its fold she
had concealed a bowie knife ; uu-ler its
cover she had raised the lid and dropped
the weapon inside, risking giving me a cut
as it fell upou me ; but in tho momentary
noise and fonfrtsiou I had got the weapon'
in my hand, and with its point raised the
heavy lid of the rough bos the fraction of
an inch, so that breathing was easy it my
position was cramped.
The three horsemen spread out. remark
ing to each other : 'Beat vm the game now
speedily, before, by any miracle, he gets
into the wooded belt by Buf'oid's Springs.'
They continued to halloo to each other
for some time ; their liberal potations sur
mounting their discretion.
'Dick,' they yelied back as they were
oft", 'a cool twelve huudied apiece ; throw
out your old shell and join the hunt.'
The driver mumbled something, but the
liquor had thickened his speech that it
was unintelligible to me. ',
If he did attempt to move the coffin I

a furious gait, and 1 expected every mo
ment that my shell would be jostled out.
By and by there was a shout, of to tb
right ; a 'tally bo' aa if tho huntsman had
sighted the quarry. Nothing but an un
warrantable amount of liquor could have
iniluenced them to conduct themselves as
they did. for no sooner bad they called out
from the right, than Dick came to a sudden
halt, leaping trotii tlie seat and ran off'
toward those who were hallooing. -
For au instant my heart stopped beating,
at the thought of the hazard 1 was about
to run.' The next moment I sprang from
the coffin to the ground. A Jew lighting
like strokes, and 1 had severed the traces,
and the hold-backs of the harness.
The whole thing is pictured vividly in
my mind. The moonlight prairie, the
little ravine towards which the renegades
were dashiug, the wagon standing iu the
trail then the rattling of the falling thrills
reached the ears of the party, and with a
wild shout they turned towards me. I was
on the horse's back, but boldly defined by
the moonlight There waa a sharp report
of two riffles. 1 felt a stinging in my loot,
another in my shoulder, but the horse was
unharmed, and the race for life began.
Their was a disheartening disadvantage
for me, for I bad no saddle, but. I was rid
ing for my life, and I held my steed be
tween my knees, and took the broad trail
wiiti lite lury ot a tornado. But the issue
would rest mostly wiih ihe horses. I knew
nothing of the one which I rode ; I knew
nothing of those that were pursuing ine.

Ou and on my steed, desperately spurred
with the point ol my kuifc, bore ahead,
actually causing me to gasp for breath ;
and twu hundred yards iu the rear rode
my igoutd-be murderers.
On the rolliug prairie now, and my ani
mal took the declivities wiili a plunge, and
the elevation with a ahure inside stride

another riffle echo, aud again a stream of
lire seemed to strike my shoulder. They
were closing iu closing up. 1 could make
out only two horsemen following. One of
those bad just discharged bis riffle at me,
and the other was held at rest for thetu to
come just a few yards nearer.
A momentary dizziness lopped me over
upon my horse's neck. The ruffians yelled
triumphantly behind, but a distant echo
brought me up, aud giving my beast a
stinging blow, I emitted the wild, long
tierce yell of the border rangers, and sped
on again ; but my horse had that peculiar
squirm now aud then in his gait that told
me he was faltering.
Again that echo readied me, swelling
out ou the rising wind it was the shrill
squeal of the fife aud the rum diddle urn,
diu-e-uru-dum-dum, dutn of iufanlry. re
turning from some expedition to Fort L.
Again I sent out that long, wild, border
yell, and I knew by the quicker breathing
of the fife, and the rapid pulsing of the
drum, that the soldiers had broken iuto the
'double quick' in heed of my cry.
A parting stiot at random, and the t-.ro
desparadoeB turned ; but one of them, at
least, I was not done with. I called r.iy
horse with a peculiar whistle ; 1 repeated
and repeated it, and then I heard her crash
ing again in pursuit, while the rider shout
ed aud lashed her, and tried to pull her
around tho other way. For a brief time
the desperado wrestled with the animal,
lasbed, goaded, and roared at her, but my
incessant jerking whistle call kept her
mind and her head towards me. He only
gave up the fruitless struggle and leaped
from her back when a squad of infantry
dashed over a billowy swell of prairie, aud
rushed down toward us at that steady,
measured run, which is so affective in con
trast with the disorderly gait.
'It's Wolf, boys,' I exclaimed, as they
came up with me for I knew his voice.
I had no need to tell them that their was a

savages to commit more than one massacre

THE CAUSE OF TROUBLE.
Thurlow Weed having lived eighty years
in this world, has a why for almost every
wherefore. Having given reason enough
for the troubles in the Republican party, he
has undertaken, in a letter recently writ
ten, to show how we cau return to specie
payments, or rather why wo do not come
to it. He charges all our financial troubles
to the extravagauce ef our women and
children. He asserts that there are 10,000
ladies in New York whose costumes, when
in full dress, cost at least 91,000 each, and

cost now from $100 to 8150 each for dress,
against 110 to $25 fifteen years ago. This
is all very well, Mr. Weed, but how about
the extravagance of the men. True it is
that the goods used by the ladies all conio
from Europe, and that gold goes from here
there to pay for thetn ; but have the sterner
sex no extravagances to answer for ? How

whose cigars, at 25 to 50 cents each, come
from Havana, whose eating is half import
ed, and who go abroad so regnlarly to en
joy pleasures which, thank heaven are not
as yet acclimatized here.
The fact is, Mr. Weed, the men of New
York, and of the country at large, are Jusi
as extravagant as the women, and if any
thing, more so ; and when contraction is
forced upon the country, both sexes will be
compelled to give up their weakness
, This terrible extravagance- in not pro
nounced by the really rich men of lb coun
try. The richest of them live very simply.
Daniel Drew lives as plainly as though ho
was worth less thau some millions, and so
does Peter Cooper. A. T. Stewart, the
great mechant whose wealth has mounted
up till he does not know himself how much
be is worth, rides in umnibuses to and
from his place of business half the time.and
he has been seen ou the box beside the
driver of bis delivery wagon. Of course he
has carriages, but they are for U3e and not
display. Oue young man who failed for
$400,000, but whose wife was conveniently
endowed with a very large estate before tho
failure, remarked that Stewart was rich
enough to aford to so ride.
The number of professional beggars who
are now infesting the city is absolutely
fearful. They haunt offices to a degree
that makes life unbearable. Half of them
make trade of some sort a pretext, carrying
for sale such light goods as matches, black
ing, &c, but the other half ask alms, with
out qualification. Sturdy men claim to be
unable to get work and women have the
usual story of sick husbands and children.
Of course a very large per cenL of the pro
fesssioualo are foreigners, and very fre
quently the mistakes they make are funny.
Let it be known that the manufacture of
play cards for beggars is a regular business
and that the beggar can furnish himself or
herself with any cause of distress that may
be thought to be most effective. One boy
who eits on Union Square, an Italian, who
of course could not read English, displayed
a placard ou which was written "This poor
woman waa left a widow with four small
children." He displayed this placard wo
days when it was shifted to something
more in accordance with the actual situa
The great scandal case still drags its
slow leugtb along. The Til ton people rested
the case with the testimony of Mrs. Moul
ton, and now Beecber has his innings,
Mrs. Moulton was a surprise to everybody.
Her testimony was clear and explicit
against Beecber, and besides, she is more
difficult to impeach than any of the other
witnesses. Beecher himself bas put upon
record his idea of her in more ways than
oue, und his statements of her absolute
truthfuluess must count terribly against
him now. Evurts tried all sorts of expedi
ents to find a daw iu her statements, but
without avail. She wan by al! odds the
most dangerous rfiut - lr-ehr ibt
has yet been called.
The defense of Beecber will be, of course,
what was foreshadowed in his statements
last summer, viz: tbat the proceed u re bas

extort money from linn and t ruin htm.
He can take no other line without falsify ing
bis previous statements. He may succeed
iu establishing this, but it is difficult at this
writing to see how. Of course no one knows
what witnesses he has, or to what they may
testify, but it seetna impossible that be

brother of Mrs. Tilton, aud Mrs. Moulton.
But we shall see what we shall see, or
rather hear what we shall hear. Let us
all hope tbat justice will be done, and that
the right ones will feel the scourge.
In consequence of the warm winter of
7.1-4, the ice companies more than doubled
the price of that very necessary article last
summer ; putting it entirely out of the
reach of the poorer classes, and troubling
those better off to havu all they wanted.
This winter has made such ice as has nor.
been seen for years. The blocks are any
thickness you want from 18 inches to four
feet, aud as hard aud as solid as granite.
The question is, will ice be any cheaper ?
The supplying of the great city is. unfor
tunately in the hands of two companies, the
Knickerbocker and Washington, aud they
owe all the best fields near tbe city, which,
with tbeir splendid organization and im
mense capital, enable them to cither buy
out or kill all rivals. When other compa
nies are started these grim monsters put
down the price to below the living point
until they are driven out, then up it goes
again. In this way they have managed to
keep the trade iu their own hands, very se
curely. The prices of last summer will te
maintained if it is possible to do, for tbe
ice companies have no more souls than the
railroad, telegraph or express companies.
The people will be compelled to pay the
last cent that can be extorted from them,
for they uever did have sense enough to
give opposition companies their support till
they were able to stand alone.
Tho Young Men's Christian Associat ion
did a good thing the other day one of the
very coldest days of the winter. They
made coffee, steaming hot and very stronj
and deputised men to stand at convenient
places and give it to the drivers of the
street cars. Tho poor fellows, standing all
day ou the front platform, exposed to the
fury of the elements, found the mug of cof
fee not only grateful but useful. It did
more to warm them than the lightning
whiskey they were in the habit of taking,
aud it is a pleasant fact to record that the
next day the coffee shops were more freely
patronized by the car drivers than the
whiskey mills. Possibly the Y. M. C. A.
desired to show tbem bow superior coffee
is to whiskey. It was a good and thought
ful thing to do, at all events.
j Bv the way, the car-drivers have anoul
the worst lives of any laboring men iu tlie
city. They work from 15 to 17 hours a
day in ail sorts of weather, and receive the
magnificent pay of $2.15 per day. And
they take the chances of being killed by
roughs, of freezing to death, and various
other unpleasant things, is it any wonder
that tbey strike once in a while ? It is a
shame that men should be compelled to
work at such fearfully exhaustive labor sj
many hours for such insignificant pay, par
ticularly when the corporations owning
them are making money by tbe cord, but
what can they do ? They have to live, and
should they all quit, their places would all
be filled iu a day'B time. Their are too
many men oat of work In New York to
enable labor to successfully dispute with
capital. If the Y. M. C. A. could only
induce the corporations to pay their men
decently they would do a greater work
that tbe distribution of coffee.
still lags. The importers and jobbers arc
doing comparatively nothing, and tb
agents for homo manufactures are in tbe
same condition; yet the feeling is more
hopeful than it has been. The merchant
insist that the stocks are nearly exhaosted,
tbat the people have money, and that they
must have goods very soon. They ail look
for a revival of business in the spring, and
for a thoroughly prosperous season. May
