LOSS OF TIE LYONNAIS
NEW Youx, Nov. 15.-T'he French iron stea.

with an unknown vessel-the latter is suppo.sed
to be sunk. The steamer commenced to sink
on the following day, and was abandoned, the
passengers and crew taking to the boats. One
boat, containing f'ourteent persons, was picked
up and brought hi-re. Thme fate of the others.

feared they are all lost. The passengers wi-re
all French. The following are saved :--Mr.
Shaller anid wife; Flora, Solomon, Domingo.
Ernestinss and Bllet. Trhe balance of the
ter of a million of dollars. Among the missing
passengers are Albert Summir (brother of Sen

THE STRUGGLE OVER.
As every hopeful soul has been fully anticipating
ever since the adjournment of~ the Cincinnati Conven
tion, the Democratic Nominees for the Presidency and
Vice-Presidency of the United States have been elec
ted in spite of all possible opposition. Frtom one end
othe Union to thme other, the power of Earth anti
Ihell were ihvuked to inaugurate a period of mis--rule
aid revolution. But that Providence which brought
us into existence as a people, decreed that the lime
was not yet crime for the iriumph of Anarchy 'over
Order, of Error over Truth, of Wrong over Right, ina
this fairest portion of Iis creation. He lbasseen g~ood
in His wisdom to bring to nouight the heathermsh rage
of factions, and to disappointment the vain imagiosinng'
uf-delued leaders. Over the roar of tihe troubled wa
ters, lhe has vouchsafed once more the olive-leaf c.f
Hope and the rainbow of Promise.
I is' indeed a season of rejoicing and of tharnksgiv
ing. it is a timte whecn patriuts from every part of our
wvid coiuntry may wvell mingle their congratlaotinns
at a common altar. It is an occasion eminently cal
colatedi to induce an increased affiliation amongt
virtuous of all parties. The Ship that was supposed
yesterday to be rushing uppun tihe breakere, is to-clay
proudly and calmly riding upon thme bosom uofan open
sea. Thme tmutineen', who yesterday threatened to
despoil and dim'mast her, are tciday *ent adrift upon
the platforms of their own making. never again (it is
'oped) to climb that gallant vessel's bide. And no"
that shoe is once more righted and breojgt.ing tihe ' rol
lers ' upon her proper course, let a boo-fire he prepared
upon hoer deck of all the prejudices and passions that
have endangered her existence; of all the absurdities
that have tdistracted her cotnusels; of all the 'isoms '
that have becloudedi the better intelligence of her
crew ; of all thme animosities that have embittered their
cotmminion. Let tihe stnoke of the sacrmmfice pass
avay, and leave above us tihe clear sky of a bright
and brghtening day. So shail the evil of the past be
mnade instrumental in securing the good of thme future
South Carolina uuiires in the " lo Triumphme" of
this victortous hour. Her seventy five thouosand votes
have been cast as a unit for 'tme powers that be.'
Early inl the struggle that has so happily closed, she
assumed her position alongside her compatriots of tihe
Detoratic line. With the rest of the South, her bum
gle-notes rung out clearly and promptly for Buchanan
and Ref:m. With them, slhe now rejoices at thme re
sult; and, waiving all useless professions, she is now
ready and prepared to act with them zealously in im
rovig that result to time salvation at once of our
ommon rights and our common country.
But there are, as must always be the case, discon
sted mnds here and there, Wha n:an find little or
nothing to gladden them in the premises. fjf these we
would ask:t Is it nothing to arry the prippiples of th~e

THE STATE FAIR.
It was our gnd rnrtune to be able to spendi a day or .
wo in Cnlrumbla during the week of the late State
Fair. Without a note for reference before irs, for we -
aere tno much engaged to take one. it will not he ex
seted that we shall be either full or explicit (as the
lhrase roes) in telling about it.
The crnwd in attendance was admitted on all hands
to be the largest ever brought together in Columbia.
The Hotels were over-crammed. some private houses
were filled. and still many an unlucky wight. carpet
hat in hand. was left to wander about the street* like
a lost spirit seeking whose bread and meat he might
ievnur. Eventually tho'ngh. wea believe all were
ruartered in one place nr another. On Tuesday the
lth. seven hundred bodies with souls were emptied
out of the Greenville cars alone. and nearly four hnn
dred from the Charlotte cars. Th-other roads poured
in their quntat, while not a few (like ourself) arrived
by land. All together, we (viz: the crowd) were a
Tns.1av night, the Associatinn convened in the old
Hall of Representatives and soon filled the room. The
President, Col. A. P. CALtHOUN of Pendleton. opened
the meeting with an address upnn the suhject.matter
of the necasinn. Agricliure. It was an admirable
production in every sense.-practical and at the same
time enmaine. sensible and at the same time ornate,
full of detail and at the same time eloquent.. It oecu
pied considerably over an hour in its delivery, and the
whole andience seemed to grow more and more inter
ested to Its very close. The speaker was interrupted
by frequent bursts of applause. especlally dsuring the
latter part of his address, when the high thoughts of
a swelling patriotism lent their colojags to his chaste
diction and impressive manner. At his con usion,
the lond plaudits of the assembly were followe l by
general murmur of satisfactinn and pleasure among
the members of the Society. The political cast of
an occasional remark did not appeitr to many of his
hearers precisely cnmpatible with the circumstances
of the S--uth's present posture. But these were unob
jeeted to. promapted as they were by the convictions of
a high-toned spirit. We trust, and take for granted,
that Col. CAMtouN'S address will he printed.
Some matter-of-course business was transacted af
ter the President was through, and the Association ad
journed to meet the next evening for the purpose of
hearing the Annual Oration by Gen. .lAursoN. We
regret not having heen able to hear this Oration. On
all sides it is spoken of as worthy its distinguished
author, and we shall endeavor to lay it before our
readers when it reaches us.
We. were not present at the Fair on Tuesday; in
deed matters were not entirely arranged there before
the evening of that day. On Wednesday forennon,
tie multifarions company began to assemble on the
groutds with a rapidity n hich showed the eagerness
of all to see whatever was to he seen. By mid-day,
they might be numbered by thoustands, passing this
way and that-from this department to the other
first among the ladirs' quilts, then gazing on shaggy
goats-now revelling among fruits and flowers, then
scanning the merits of jacks and jennets--thip moment
listening to the stiains of the German hand, anon to
the crowing of Shanghai roosters-one minui admi
ring beautiful specimens of painting and sculpture, the
next examining sundry improved plow-stocks. In
short, what with darting from this place to.that, and
that, and the other; what with cows and bulls and ot
toman patterns and bees, elks and pheasants and can
dypalaces and hogs, patch-~wotk (an immense assort
ment) and wax-flowers and woolen domestics and vege
tables, buggies and carriages atnd pianos and water.
proof boots, and a great many other things of every
grade, the big Fair day of' Wednesday was a melo
dramatic panorama such as is niot often presented to
the optics of the passing~ generr~tlon, and would have
made our grand-daddies take to their beels ina confut
tertaining, pleasintg and varied, if not a surprising ex
hibition ; and all went away delighted. Fur furthter
particulars, see small bills or the South Carolina Ag
riculurist. (And, by the way, all who wish to keep
up with the agricultural times in our State, should
make haste and subscribe to the Agriculturist. Be
aides being a State journal, it is already becoming the
medium of valuable articles on Carolina farming, and
will soon, we hope, take its place in the very front
rankof such publicatiuns in our country.)
Edgefield, it grieves us to say, was by no means ftul
ly represented im the Fair. 3lsj. T. G. Bauont had a
small portion of Ihis stock thterc, and Capt. Rt. WVaaD
and one or~awo others a few specimens of cattle ; and
moreover illrj. Baconr torok a premium for the best
stallioni ; beside. this, there was nothing that we cant
now think of. Never mind-we'll do better next time.
With the Fair grounds and Fair arrangements every
one was compjletely taken. They were gotten up oni
a scale of litberality atid permatnency in the highest
degree creditable tio the city of Columbia. Th'lat city
deerves wvell of the State fur n hat she has do~ne ini
this matter ; and we trust that the increased success
of our future Fairs will showv that the peopJe of the
State properly anppreciate her munificence.
Much more enight we say ; but this must suffice.

BLISS DYSPEPTIC REMEDY." Foih benelft.
of all whom it may concern, I will answer tlese gos.,
tions. To the first question. I answer-Eat anything
that is good, wholesome-, substantial, and nourishing.
To the second question, I answer-Eat as muchas
you are accustomed to eat, or whatever would be
considered a sufficiency by the generality of b'ealthy
people. To the third question, I answer-No, for If
you do, you never will get well. No.dyspeptic, or
any other person laboring under chronic disease, ever
got rid of lhis disease, or ever will by starvin ghiself.
To question four, I answer-No, for meat s a most
important article of diet to the invalid dyspeptic. To
question five, I answer-No, if you are accustomed to
rinking it! the question as to wihether tea and cofibe
are injutious is all moonshine.
Such advice as the above to adyspeptic and to per
sons laboring under chronic diseases generally; will
no doubt be read and regarded by a great many with
surprise ; and I am greatly mistaken if the above is
not pointed at by many sagacious and wise heads, Is
proofs either that Iknow nothing of the diseases which
I pretend to treat, or that it is some new phase in the
humbug line. But, hold on a bit, all you that think
so-throw the old fogy aside for a moment, and let ts
see about this matter. Wewon't stop to I nuire how
you came by your dyspepsia, but we wi enquire-. -
why is it that you have not got well of itlung a I
Why is it that it sticks to you, tormenting you so-t.
you are no manner of account I Simply because the
powers of the system are unabis to throw off tfie di- -
sease-because the system has, from some reason be.
come too much enfeebled-too much reduced in vital
force-too much in a weakened state ;- or that the ex
tent, severity or stronghold that the disease has gotis
too great for the via metucatriz naturse-the powers
of the system to remove. This is the reason, and-the
only reason, that you are not well. Well,. how are
you to be cured ! By rursuing such a course of treat'.
ment as shall help out the via mecutatrix hatnrae
the powers of the system-by institting a treatment
that will bind up, strengthen, give tone, and vigor,.
and lend a helping hand to the entire general system,
by which she may be enabled to trow ojthisdwsease,
a-4 for instance regular out of door exercise, cold bath
ing. travelling,-change of scene &c., and the takin of
medicinal agents. Why is medicine taken! Simply
to assist nature to throw off disease, and nothing else.
Medicine has not on.! particle of influence on disease,
not one particle. Medicine dont cure diseates, it only
assist% nature ts throw it off. Now comes the ques
tion; while we are doing every thing in our powertO
bind up and strengthen the general powers of the sys
tem, that she may be enabled to tirow off this disease,
shall we at the same time deny-her her natural stimu
las, her natural strengthener! shall we withhold that
by which she is nourished and supported. viz:-food,
good, wholesome and substantial food! Bynomeans,
for if we do, we are bringing about the very same
state of system that we are trying to get rid of, by
withholding food we reduce and weaken the system.
The taking of good and substantial food Is as essential
as any portion of the treatment that we institute, it
fact, very much more so, for the food is the natural
strengthener of the powers of the system, and from it
good. rick and healthy blood is made.
All this, we grant, says my sagacious friendbU
continues he, what's the use of a person if his stomach
is in an tnfit state to receive and digest that food atd
prepare it for the system; and besides, says he, there..
are hundreds and thousands that cannot take much -
food upon the stomach, in consequence of the-great
ulistress it causes. Now this isa very important ques.
tion, and a very true remark. There would be but
little use in taking this-good, wholesome and substan
tial food unless the stomach coul4 receive and.digest
it, and too, without pain and distress; and that the
stomach may receive and digest the food, and-with-.
out pain, recourse must be had to medicinal agents.
By these, if a judicious choice is made among the
remedial agents, the stomach may he enabled to per.
form its functions-.may be enabled to receive and di
gest t-:e food, and too withotit pain or di'tress. Now
comes the question-what remedial agent shall we
use? Shall we use calomel? No! because in its
action it stimulates the mucus membrane of-the stom
ach and bowels, which are already in an oser excited
and inflamed state. Shall we use iron or any of its -
kindred preparations! No! for the same rcason.- -
They would not only stimulate the already over exci
ted mucus membrane of the stomach but render it still
Ifurther unable to prepare those preparations for their
admissiron into the system, so if their presence in the
Istotnacht did no harm, they could not possibly do any
good, from the fact of their not being taken into the
ticirculation. - -
IShall we tise any'of the many "specifies " that are
*now-a-days .placed before the people -as "sovereign t
remedies !" No! fur nine tenths of them are pre
-ared with alcohol, o~oe othter eulystimulating
Ju to an inflamed mucus membrane of the stomach
th~an algohol or any of its preparat ions.
What remedial agent shall we use ther ? This is
a question itat I asked for years. I tried over and
over agatin all thte remedies and prescriptions found in
the books, bitt all to little or no purpose, until, at last,
aidedi by experiments almost without number, I com
.potunded a remedy, whicht, although very simple,.yet
I I funnd ajways most effectual when my directions
were complied with. This preparatioin I have used
in cases of every description o'f dyspepsia, and other
diseases having their origin in disease of the stomach,
for the last ten years in my private practice, and am
new prescribing it daily, by letter, to patients In every
seetion of the United States, who have placed their
case under my special care and treatment.
My legitimate business is the treatment and pre
scribing byletter, for chronic diseases generally, and
nine tenth of the caseR I prescribe for arc either dys
pepsin or some oilier disease having its origin in di
sease of the stomach. (Andi by the by I will here take
occa'ion t drop the hint that some of my friends f'r
get that I lay no claim to being a philatihopist, or
that I " grirnd for toll." I am readly and willinig, and
do as expedi-ciously as possible answer all iteir'letters,
and it gives me pleasure to do so, hut .wvhen it will
take from one to two, three and four hours to answer
and advise them. I always like to see the " five," it
helps out amnazingly-esrecially when their case lisp.
pens not to be dyspepsia.) I have now placed ithis
remedy before thle publlic atS one that may he relied
on, and .I do so without any hesitaiion, do.ubt, or dis.
trust mi its vir tues or atbility to cure, providing the in
structions are followed out.
In colnclu~ion I will take occasion to remark, that
there are titidreds and thatiandls ihroughont the Uni
tedl States that are suffering from the disease
dyspepsia, and are taking tis, that, and the other
preparation, unid at the same time living on bran and
wa.'ter, andh other stich like slops, in the hope of being
Irelieved of their disease, but they are all doomed to
dlisappoinitmeunt. for it is beyond question, that in order
to becoame rid of that disease, a gooid and wholesome
dliet mui.t h, made use of, and suitable remedies taken
