As general Agents we take pleasure in presenting this well known and responsi
ble Company to the public and in recommending it as FIRST CLASS in every way.
We might add much more in this regard, but being interested as its Agents, prefer
to speak through DISINTERESTED PARTIES. Therefore, read and digest the
following notices (among many others) from both Northern and Southern papers as
to the virtues of this Company.
Sun-Columbus, Georgia, January 27, 18C9: "There is no better Company in the
land. A comparison with other corporations of a similar character w?l convince
all of the superior safety in taking nsks with the Brooklyn Life."
Insurance Times-New York, January, 1869: "The Brooklyn has placed itself in
the van guard of insurance reform, and is the first Company that has done full
justice to the insured," <fcc, <tc.
The Sentinel-Raleigh, N. C. : " This great feature of cash surrender value is an
important improvement that signalizes the era in insurance."
Boston Post-Massachusetts, 1S69: " This plan (guaranteed surrender values) re
moves the sole objection existing to making an application for insurance. Each
Solicv becomes a piece of negotiable paper, as easily transferred as a Registered
! Dispatch-St. Louis, Mo.. January 7, 1869: "A policy in the Brooklyn Life is
thus worth so much in ready money, <tc. This is the only Life Company that has
carried this excellent feature into business," <Sc, Ac.
We call especial attention to this distinctive and advantageous feature of guaran
teed surrender value of the Brooklyn Life, particularly characteristic; and also to
tho fact that there aro no classes in the Brooklyn Life. All fare alike, whether from
the North, South, East or West.
Above all, we direct the public attention to the fact, that Polices can be obtained
in this Company, owing to its careful management and superior advantages, at
LOWER RATES than in any other Company of EQUAL RANK AND SOLVENCY

HUSBAND'S LIABILITY FOR WIK
BILLS.-An action was decided in Phi!
delphia, Wednesday, by Judge Thayer,
favor of a husband who hud been sued
a dry goods firm for the amount Oi a L
run by his wife. Defence set up that d
fendant furnished his wife with an am]
supply of necessaries. In the course
his charge, Tnayer said : " lt is a false ai
foolish notion for tradespeople lo entorta
that a husband is bound to pay all bi
contracted by his wife. No such monstro
doctrine is allowed in the law. Trade
men must ascertain the facts and the tr
relations of man and wife before allowii
the latter to run up bills which he is to 1
looked to to pay." Commenting upon tl:
exposition of law, which ought to be mo
familiar than it is, thc Philadelphia R
cord thinks that when trades-people con
to distinctly understand it "a very sens
ble step will have been accomplished t
wards reform in the wanton ertravagan
and ruinous folly which, under the mer
tricious impulse of the stupid despot cal
ed 'fashion,' so wastes the substance, ma
the manners, deforms the persons, d
grades the morals and wrecks the happ
ness of myriad households and individi
als, not only in this community, bi

The End of a Once Affinent Mer
Lafayette R. Fish committed suicide in
his house, at Hicks and Fulton streets,
Brooklyn, Wednesday morning. Mr. Fish
j j was 47 years of age, temperate and indus
. j trious, but of weak mind. Five years
ago he was a prosperous wholesale grocer
in this city, but so prodigal that ruin
overtook him. He removed to Brooklyn
and for nearly three years was aconduc
tor on a railroad. The loss of his proper
ty preyed upon his mind, and the ap
parent slights which he sometimes receiv
ed lrom old associates stung him deeply.
He frequently complained to his wife that
his brain was burning, that his hair felt
like threads of molten lead. He made
three several attempts to take his life, but
was always frustrated by his wife's sleep
less vigilance. His morbid fancies assum
ed a form so alarming that his wife feared
to share his room, and slept on a lounge
near the door, her ears ever on the alert
for his slightest movement and her eyes
watchful of all his actions. Last Thurs
day Mr. Fish complained of feeling un
usually ill and from that time up to the
morning of his death he rapidly grew
worse. Yesterday his wife left him for a
few moments, not without misgivings to
procure medical assistance. When she
returned a great crowd was collected about
her house, which fell back at her approach
and disclosed to her gaze thc mangled
corpse of her husband. It appears that
Fish had availed himself of her absence
to carr}- out his cherished plan, and, climb
ing to the roof of the house, which is four
stones high, took thc fatal leap, dashing
out his brains upon the sidewalk-N. Y
The Progress of Despotism
Exasperated at the hopelessness of
securing a re-election by a fair and
free expression of the will of thepeo
ple, the President has resolved upon
a bold and most wicked expedient to
accomplish the perpetuation of the
reigning dynasty. It is published,
upon the authority of Senator Poole,
that Grant has expressed his deter
mination to declare martial law
throughout the entire South, and
thus, by armed force and an organi
zed system of terrorism, crush out
the last semblance of liberty which
yet remains to the unhappy people
of those States. The pretext for
this high handed and outrageous pro
cedure-and every intelligent man
";nows it is but a pretext of the flim
siest sort-is the prevalence of out
rages in that section, and the alleged
inability of the civil authorities to
enforce the laws. The real motive
is to continue the present oligarchy
in place and power, and prolr g its
opportunity to plunder, oppress, and
harass the people. While we retain
the outward semblance of a republic,
i i i r eal i ty w ? a ffe rap?d?y^?t r?ff?r?g-^
or rather being driven-toward ab
solutism ; and, afc the rate at which
we are going, it is not at all unlikely
that ere long a similar state of affairs
may be inaugurated in the North,
and our State Governments be super
seded by military satraps, swore to
follow to the bloody end the fortunes
of a man who shows every indication
of a disposition to
"-wade through slaughter to a throne.
And shut the gates of mercy on man
lt is common for old topers who
sometimes "get off their pins," to
excuse themselves by saying " Hang
it, I'd been all right if I hadn't mix
ed my liquors." An incident of this
kind occurred on St. Charles street a
few days ago.
An acquaintance of this reporter
was seen heading for one of the
popular saloons on that popular
thoroughfare, and was observed to
require more sea room than was his
custom, when a friend stopped him
with the inquiry :
Hallow, Joe, what's the matter ?
-Blame mo if you ain't tight ns
To this Joe replied with some ef
brt, "I believe-hie-I am-hie-a
little ti-tight, and it all comes from
" How many drinks have you ta
ken ?" suggested the interlocutor.
"Not many," said Joe, "but I
did to i. s^ick to one drink. Let me
see if I can count 'em. First; I took
a brandy cocktail, then a gin cock
tail, then a brandy smash, then bran
dy straight, then a whiskey smash,
then a Santa Cruz punch, then whis

then three glasses of beer, then a
sherry cobbler, a' glass of porter,
another brandy straight, a glass of
white wine, two glasses of claret, two
whiskey julips, a glass of sherry, one

..Mop! stop 1" said the other,
" you've counted twenty drinks al
ready. No wonder you are tight,
with all that stuff in you. Mixing
liquors that way will make any man
tight. It is the quantity, not the
taixing, that sewed you up, my boy."
And that's so !-Picayune.
How A DYING GIRL MARRIED AN
EDITOR.-It is a doctrine of the
Mormon Church that no woman can
get to heaven without the aid of a
man, except in very special cases.
To be married and a mother in Israel
is eternal salvation in heaven for,
the saintess. Without this, in the
other world, the deceased saintess
must serve as a kitchen girl or wait
ing-maid to some resurrected mother
in Israel. This strange doctrine is
thoroughly believed by the Mormon
women, and hence their eagerness to
be married, either in or out of poly
gamy. A case illustrating this has
come to our knowledge. A beautiful
young girl of seventeen was on her
deathbed, and being unmarried she
requested that a certain well-known
editor should be sent for, to whom
6he wished to be " seated," and thus
gain eternal glory in the Kingdom of
God. The elders complied with her
wink, the editor, reached the death
bed, and there, in the presence of
witnesses, the living and. the dying
were united' in the holy bonds of
malri*nony. The editor was already
a married man, but his religion made
him take the dying/girl to wife. In
stances of this kind are" not rare.

The Charleston Courier " does up" the
late thanksgiving proclamation of Gov.
Scott in the following manner :
We confess some little surprise at this
proclamation. We knew that when _ outh
Carolina had Governors who were citi
zens of our state, who had the fear of I
God, as well as the respect of our people,
who knew the Ten Commandments, and
what is more sought to obey their teach
ings, it was usual to set aside one day for
thanksgiving and prayor. We also knew
that the day so set aside was observed by
our people, because they were prosper
ous and happy, because their rulers were
honest, ana because they felt respect for
the men who. in their official position,
called upon them to set aside a day for
the purpose of giving thanks for the
blessings which we had received. We
also knew that scott had attempted be
fore to do the same thing in imitation
of men who would blush to know that
he is their successor, though he is Gov
ernor in opposition to the intelligent,
honest, tax-paying citizens of the state.
We further knew that he was, and is, as
much a servant of U. o. Grant as ever
was tho humblest soldier to the most ty
rannical general. We knew besides that
Grant had made proclamation of a day
of thanksgiving as well as a proclama
tion of martial law in certain parts of |
South Carolina. We also knew that ?Scott
would be anxious to follow the lead of
his master. We did not, however, know
that he was cool enough, in face of the
recent developments, to call upon the
people of this State to perform religious
rites at his bidding. We have in vain
searched tho proceedings of the Senate
sub Committee on the Ku-Klux in South
Carolina to lind that Robert K. Scott hau
become religious. We in vain have ex
amined his confession of fraud and guilt,
where he acknowledges that he has be
trayed his trusts, to lind even a single
word of repentance. We only can sup
pose that having been discovered and
caught, he seeks to put on the garb of |
religion to conceal further developments
of tiie frauds perpetrated by his admin
istration. He has replied to our honest
demand for the repudiation of the debt
which has been contracted in fraud by
his administration, by a call for a day of |
thanksgiving. In that call he asks us to
remember tho desolate and the oppress
ed. Docs he think that we of South
Carolina can forget that we are oppress
ed by Scott, of Ohio, by martial law, and
by the poverty, shame and disgrace
which he and men like him have brought
upon our people ? Or did he mean to per
petrate a sarcasm upon us by reminding
us of our misery?
~He further suggests that we should
have mercy en the poor. Does he think
that wo have no mercy on those among
ourselves who have ticen impoverished
by the irauds practiced by his adminis
tration, or does he mean to say, that we
should pay the debt which has been con
tracted in fraud, and by so doing bank
rupt the State, and save from poverty
those who own the bondswhich have
The disguse of Scott is too transparent,
and-recalls to our mind the lines which
The devil was sick, the devil a saint
The devil got well, the devil a bit was he.
Scott is now. His acts have been ex
posed. Our people will repudiate the
debt which he has contracted in their
name. He has gained the contempt of |
honest men, and he seeks to deceive an
outraged people by putting on the mark
of religion. His proclamation disgusts
every proper thinking man. It but adds
to his infamy because it is a profanation
of all religious rites to have the recom
mendation of Robert K. Scott.
