c- Death by Stage Coach.
In theso dnys of railways and steam
boats, a stage coach acoident worthy n
tolcgraphio report is a novelty. Yet one
? comes from New Hampshire which, in
its fatality, most be placed beside the
ordinary disastors of the more modern
and dangerous mode of travel. Six
horses attached to a stage ooacb at the
"White; Mountains ran away, nnd in the
wreck which fallowed, two persons were
killed,itwo others fatally wounded, and
nine more or less injured.
Possibly a moral may be drawn from
this. Horses will ruu away as rfoll as
steam boilers explode, railroad bridges
break down, and vessels go to the bot
tom. Suppose wo depended as largely
upon stage coaches as upon the other
modes of conveyance, and that ns many
people traveled as now?which by the I
way, would be impossible?what reason
have we to expect that fatal disasters
WUUiU Oil ibsi iittqUti?b . I tsl'ijapa, kit
deed, wo are continually complaining of
things which is really better than it
could have been in the old fashioned
ways. Stage diivers are no less care
less than engineers or conductors. It
may fairly bo said that life would bo
equally as safe in the hands of the same
man, whethor ho controlled a conch or a
train. "We hnvc bceu told that there is
one* conductor on a Massachusetts road
~one of the first ever constructed?who
has served in that capacity since the first
train ran upon the road For twenty
%oars before thnt bo drove a coach be
tween Boston aud Portsmouth; yet in
all that time ho has novor sacrificed a
cent of property .or lost a life by care*
Irssncss. Snob instances aro of course
rare; if they wero not, disasters such as
that recorded, or as the railroads and
steamboats almost daily furnish, would
be almost unknown.

middle of the street, as it is the most

that it in some way accelerates his mo

Fever and Ague,
from which mankind suffer over a large part of
the globe, is tho consequence of a diseased action
in the system, induced by the poisonous miasm of
vegetable decay. This exhalation is evolved by
the action of soW hest on wet soil, and rises with
tho watery vapor from it. While the sun is below
tho horjon this vapor lingers near tho earth's sur
face, and tho virus is taken with it through the
lungs into tho blood. There it acts as an irritating
poison on tho internal viscera and excreting organs
of the body. Tho liver becomes torpid and fails to
secrete not only this virus, but also the bile from
tho blood. Both the virus and tho bile accumulate
in tho circulation, and produce violent constitu
tional disorder. Tho spleen, the kidneys, and the
stomach sympathize with the liver, and become
disordered also. Finally* the instinct of our or
ganism, as if in an attempt to expel tho noxious
infusion, concentrates the wholo blood of the body
in the internal escrctories to force them to cast it
oat. Tho blood leaves tho surface, and rushes to
the central organs with congestive violence. This
is tho Cmu. But In this effort lc fails. Then the
Fbvbr follows, in which the blood leaves the cen
tral organs and rashes to the ?urfaoe, as if in
another effort to expel the irritating poison through
that other great excretory?tho skin. In this
also it fails, and the system abandons the attempt
exhausted, and waits for tho recovery of strength
to repeat the hopeloss effort another uay. These
are the fits or paroxysms of Fbvbr and AouB.
Such constitutional disorder will of course under
mine the health If it is not removed.
Wo have labored to find, and havo found, an
Ayer's Ague Cure,
which neutralises this malarious poison in the
blood, and stimulates the liver to expel it from tho
body. As it should, so it does euro this afflicting
disorder with perfect certainty. Aad it dooa more,
or rather does what is of more acrriee to thoso oub
Icet to this infection. If taken in season it expels
t from the system as it is absorbed, aad thus keeps
those who use it free from its attacks; keeps tho
Sretem in health although exposed to the disease,
onsequently it not only cures, bnt protects from,
the groat variety of affections which arc induced
by this malignant influence, sueh as Remittent
Fever, Chill Fever, Dumb, or Masked Ague,
Periodical Headache, or Bilious Headache, Bilious
Fevers, Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, BhndnosB,
Toothache, Earache, Catarrh, Asthma, Palpita
tions, Painful Affections of tho Spleen, Hysterics,
Colic, Paralvsis, and Painful Affections of the
Stomach and Bowels, all of which, when arising
from this cause, will bo found to assume more or
less the intermittent type. This " Agus Cunn"
removes tho cause of these derangements, and eure?
This it accomplishes by stimulating the escrc
tories to expel the virus from the eystem; and
these organs by degrees become habited to do thiy
their office of their own accord. Hence arises what
we term actlimataiion. Time may accomplish the
name end. but often life ia not long enough, or is
sacrificed in the attempt, while this " Aoub Cvbb "
docs it at onco, and with safety. Wo have great
roason to believe this is a surer as well as safer
remedy for the whole class of diseases which ore
caused by the miasmatic infection, than any other
whiohhaa been discovered: and it haa still another
important advantage to the public, which is, that
It is cheap as well as good.
