THE HARV ABD AND OXFORD BOAT
Th? Thames from Putney to Mortlake.
As the time approaches for the international
. boat noe on tbe Thames, bet ween? the crews
of the Universities of Harvard and Oxford, the
'. pubhc interest increases naturally in all tbat
relates to the novel and interesting contest.
Oar readers will therefore receive kindly, per?
haps, a sketch of tbe ground, or, more strictly
apes king, the water course, over which the
race will be rowed.
The Thames, which from Sbeeburv and
Sbeerneaa. where it enters the Germa;:
. ' Ocean, to the Pool below London Bridge, is a
deep, full river, not without a certain majesty,
and worthy, trom its tidal flow, of bearing upon
ita bosom the vast commerce of London, rapid?
ly diminishes in volume as yon ascend it above
Battersea, until at Richmond ic becomes, to
eyes accustomed to the Hudson, the Potomac
and the Mississippi, an insignificant stream.
It is nowhere a wide roadstead. At Grave?
send it is not m oie tban half a mile across,
and at London irs widtb cannot exceed tbree
hundred yards. The ocean tides, however,
" which rise I rom seventeen to twenty-two feet,
give s volume and current to tbe Thames far
arrester and stronger than, in other latitudes,
' belong to larger riven. Wbat the Thames
loses in strength above London is yet moro
I th*o gained in interest sod beauty. As and?
ing , it jon pass the em bo wei ed villa of Pope,
and the noble palace of Wolsey and William,
and soon after glide by the "proud keep of
v><1lmdeor''andthe .antique towen" of Eton
i CoBege, which are all sweetly reflected fr rai
its surface. Beyond Eton it rous through
rich pastures, narrowing more and more, and
?,; navigable only fer barges; and winds with
<-' picturesque graos, though with slender our
zoos, by the tomb of Fan* Rosamond and the
venerable walls of Oxford's Colleges.
-Loadon is peculiar in-the lovell ness of its
SU burbs. All that is mean and squalid and re?
pulsive of the greft etty is shat up in the pur?
lieus of Whitechapel and St. Giles', or stretches
r sway toward tue Pram stead marah ea. As soon
aa the country is reached in any other direc
? lion, the rich rnrf, the waving trees, the bow?
ery cottages, .the quaint old thorps and ville
sres, make the prospect soothing and derigbt
JoL. Ass part of the environs which borden
. on the Thames-beyond Chelsea Hospital is
rawimsSTIj attractive. The river, as yet unpol?
luted bj the wash of the metropolis, and
r* sweetly margined by fertile meadows, is the
.very image of purity and peace. The locality,
which has witnessed for several years the boat
race* of Oxford and Cambndsre, and which has
been chosen for the coming cont est between
England and America, ia a bend of the river of
Ivs miles, reaching from Putney to Mortlake.
' On the map ia a horseshoe, or more nearly an
eye (of hooks asst eyes) ip shape. By the rail?
way or the high-road the distance between the
. two .places is not more than two wniles and a
j, Moe* is s quiet Bille town of shout six
10 thousand inhabitants, immediately opposite
v sToJham, wi?h which it ts connected by s wood
< sst bridge. The pipes of tbe Chelsea water
' works company cross the river on pian just
5 above the bridge. There ls little of interest in
Putney, which ?as the birthplace of Gibbon,
, the historian, beyond the old parish church,
? buiR age* aim, and enlarged in the reign of
Henry VIL Rome-pretty villas lie scattered
about along the liver, the village bank; of
which, immediately st the bridge, is edged
with bans and b^er-houses, deriving their cos
som chiefly from the rx? trag otu os.
About midway of the eonrse the Thames is
spanned by a noble suspension bridge at Ham
~ meramita, an outlying su barb of London; and
here the river bank on th? northern side is
liped with buildings for a considerable dis
'.'ttjQo*. iSTory window .of these buildings is
. crowded with spectators on the occasion of a
?rest noe, as the windows on Broadway are
.?9ted wheo ss imposing procession is to pass
-ct*/. The bridge also, from shore to shore,
presents a dense mass of human beings, occu?
pying every foot of s pace, from an early hour
of the morning'.
Above Hammersmith, on the same sids, is
Chiswick, and beyond Chiswick, on the other
md i, is Barnes, a amati antiquated cluster of
brick houses, built along narrow lanes, witb a
tower peeping out of the foliage-the lower of
the parish church, where Melville preaches.
Heren solid Iron railway bridge raised on
stone Diera crosses tbe river. No. spectators
' are permitted to go upon this bridge.
As soon as the boats shoot under ita arches
the. cocsawains catch sight of the "ship" at
Mortlake, wheres flag signal indicates the
. gos!. Not more than sax hundred yards now
remain to be sesomplished of the distance,
. ned as Barnes Bridge is passed tbe excitement
of tbs spectators reaches its acme.
On the southern bank of the Thames, all the
why from Putney to Mortlake, there is a tow.
path for the hones employed in the barge
transportation, and this towpath is compactly
thronged with "gents* tbe tradespeople, the
multitudrnous hoi po?ai ot London town. Here
the "Erect Kyard* of thence, with tbe dress,
names, ages, weights, respectively, of the
twoerews. is hawked about by ragged little
- Arabs. Here mountebanks, strolling gypsies
and Ethiopian strenadere beguile the weary
-bonn of waiting with their performances.
Here the piokpocket plies bis nimble trade,
and the voice of the little joker makes itself
aud;ble: ''One, two, three; two little thimble i
.sod one small pea." As the gua is beard an
; jiouncdng that the boats aro off, tba immense
. mass sways to sod fro with eager exoectstion,
' and the towpath then becomes a dangerous
place, for great numbers of horsemen and
- horsewomen-among the hitter many of the
*>preUy horsebreakers" at the Ladies' Mile
' Charge up the river, keeping pace with the ar?
rowy flight o? the boats and running over such
unlucky people as may be in their way.
On the northern bank of the river, f>rthe
"Seen grouped opon the sward, or on the porti
coes of handsome villas. ? Just opposite the
Putney start in g-poet is the Episcopal palace,
ttfrroubded.by awide-aoreadiug park, of the
ins bop of London, and further on is the coun?
try residence or Poole, tho tailor, who eigna
- bass every noe by? breakfast of faultless ex
oellenoe of cuisine, to which the most aristo?
cratic of hm customers only are invited.
Immediately following the boats in tbe con?
test ?ornes a lane flotilla ot the river steam
1 from London, black with cockneys, who
ive come to witness the B pf eta clo from the
vor itself. Nothing more dangerous or more
loomfortable than this mode of attending the
raoe could well be imagined, yet the accidents
are few; and the cockney likes his steamboat,
which lathe worst specimen of that kind ot
correy moe known to exist. But the steam?
boats are not merely uncomfortable for the
passengers, they are a great outrage upon tbs
contestants, and have notunfrequently swamp?
ed the unsuccessful boat in the swell they
create. Eight or ten of them ascending the
river abreast make a surge which overtakes
and embarrasses the crows that are imme?
diately in advance of them. It is to be boped
that some restriction may ba imposed upon
the coming contest, and that the river may
also lie cleared of barges, which, by some per?
verse ehance, seem always to get in the way.
The race of the 81st August will probably be
witnessed, should the day be mir, by more
than one million ot spectators, and every pi e
caution should be taken, as well for the pre?
vention of accident as for giving the competi?
tors a fair chance. . .p
-The Davenport (Iowa) Democrat tells of a
singular case of superotition: "Chatting with
an aged lady, we noticed the wonderful pres?
ervation and beauty o? ber teeth, and could
not refrain from mentioning it. ?Tes,* said ehe,
.I never had a toothache or lost a tooth,
because I bit the snake.' On inquiry, she
stated that when children st home, hu- father
bsd made them bite a rattlesnake, be holding
the reptile by the hesd and tail;each child bit
along the entire length of the backbone, not
violently, but just so ss to indent the skin; and
thia was considered an infallible recipe against
toothache and decay, sad which the old lady
believes op to the present hour.1*

During the week prices have steadily hardened un?
der exo'un J Liverpool advices. Tho official closing
quotations is 35c for middling uplands; but this rep?
resents the holders asking price anl not actual
trama'hone. The feeling at the clcse wa- dull, and
there was more cisposition to offer cotton for future
delivery and few buyers. The weather at the South
for the past week baa been very favorable for tte
grew!og crops. The hot and dry spell has done
mach towards preventing the spread of the cater?
pillar, wbiob had appeared in tome localities.
lbe demand for future contracta has bees quite
large thia week, matty on European account; 28 yo
has been paid lor low middlisg, December delivery.

TREVER AND AGUE,
FROM WBICH MANKIND SUFFER
over a large part of the globe, laue
consequence of a diseased action in
tbe ?ystem, induced bv the poison?
ous miasm of vegetable decay This
exhalation is evolved ty the action
of solar best on wet soil, and rises
with the watery vapor fi om lt.
While the ena ls below the horizon this vapor
lingers near the earth's surface, and the virus
is taken with lt through the lungs mto the blood.
There lt acts as an irritating polfon on the
internal viscera and excreting organs of the body.
1 he liver becomes torpid and falls to secrete Bot
only mis virus, hut also tbe bile from the blood.
Both the virus and the bile accumulate in th? circu?
lation, and produce vio ent constitutional disorder.
The spleen, the kidneys, and the stomach sympa
thize with 4he liver, and become disordered also.
Finally, the instinct of our organism, as li in an at?
tempt to expel th? noxious infusion, concentrates
the ?bole blood of tbe body in tbe internal excreto?
ries to force th em to cast lt out. The blood 1? aves
the surface, and rusbes lo the central organs with
congestive violence. Ibis ia the CbilL But in this
effort lt falls. Then the Fever follows, In wnich the
blood leaves the central organs and rushes to the
surface, as it in another effort io expel Ike irritating
poison ?brough that other great excretory-tbe skin.
In tbis also lt fails, and tbe system abandons the
attempt exhausted, and w.-its for tbe recovery of
strength to repeat tbe hopeless effort another day.
These are the bis of paroxyems ot Fever and Ague.
Such constitutional disorder will of course under
mine the health if it ls not removed.
We have labored to hnd, and have found an anti?
AYER'S AGUE CURE,
Which neutralizes tbis malarious poison In the
blood, ond stimulate.? the liver to expel it from the
body. As it ?bould.ro it does cure this afflicting
disorder with perfect certainty. And it does more,
or rather does what is of more service to those sub?
ject to this infection. If taken in season it expels
it from the system as it is absoroed. and thus keeps
tboso who use it free ?rom its attacks; keeps the sys?
tem in health although exposed to the disease. Con?
sequently it not only cures, but protects from, the
great variety of affections wbich are induced by this
malignant influence, such as Remittent Fever, Chill
Fever. Dumb, or Masked Ague, Periodical Headache,
or Bilious Headache. Bilious Fever*, r-eurelgla.
Bheumatlim Gout, Blindness. Toothache. Earache,
Catarrh, Asthma, Palpitations Painful Affections of
the spleen, Hysterics, Colic, Paralysis, and Painful
Affect ons rf the Stomach and Bowels, all of which,
when arising from this cause, will be found to as?
sume, more or less, the intermittent type. This
"AGUE CUBE." removes the canse of these derange?
ments and cures the disease.
1 his it accomplishes by stimulating the excreto?
ries to expel the virus from the system ; and tbese
organs by deereea.become habited to do this, their
efhee, of their own accord. Hence arises what wc
term acclimatation. Time may accomplish the same
end, but olteu l<fe is not long enough, or ls sacrificed
in the attempt, while this ' Ague Cure" does it at
once, and with safety. We bave great re ; son to be?
lieve ibis is a surer as well as safer remedy for the
whole class of diseases which are caused hy the mi?
asmatic ln'ectt' n. than any other which has been
discovered; and it has still another important ad?
vantage to the pifbiic, which ls, that it is cheap as
well as good.
