[FROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
WASHINGTON, December 29.
Washington has beeu practically shut up
dvPng the ?sst four days, and even now that it
is open the situation ls dull. Everybody who
does not have a permanent residence herc leaves
the city for home at this holiday season.
Then we have had the death of Stanton, the
usual OauQtlngs of black cambric from the pil?
lars and posts of the departments, and the
obsequies to make up thc general sombre
look of the town, and to .strike down more than
hair of the life of the festival week. The
death of Stanton has. of course, filled what has
been left of the city, but it has not been fthlowed
by the mourning and lamentation that some of
the accounts sent hence would make one believe.
No people know more of the ex-Secretary and
whilom Justice than the residents here, and there
was scarcely a flutter or crape rrom the windows
of a private dwelling, over his death. Republicans
as weU as Democrats suffered from his vindictive
temper. One of the most prominent of the Radi?
cals resident here was thrust into the old capitol
prison, on the mere breath of rumor. Forney tells
in his Chronicle of the arrest and imprisonment of
his own editor, and of the open rejoicing that Stan?
ton made to bis face when he demanded bis release,
and others live in disease contracted in prisen
without cause and without conviction. Of course
that Latin maxim that requires that no ill should
be said of the dead has no exception; but the ract
should be noted that a prominent Republican
_ taurnallst and office-holder has been boldest in
'"Hi open rejoicings over the death of Mr. Stan
ton. That, perhaps, illustrates enough. But the
ex-Secretary has lived a life of doubt and fear
since he left the War Department. Hardly a week
passed that he did not receive threatening letters
tf an anonymous character, and this so prey eil
apon his mind that he had employed a private
policeman to do duty from sunrise to sunset in
fro Aof his residence on Franklin Square.
The Secretary of the Treasury intends to open
the New Year by pressing his financial policy on
Congress substantially in the same Une in which
it was blocked out in his report, and as briefly
telegraphed yon a rew days since. Eastern capi?
talists state that Congress may enact a loan bear?
ing four and a half per cent, interest, but that lt
can never force an exchange of ?vc-twcnties for
the same nntil specie payments are resumed
and that, In that event, when it can commence te
redeem those of__ 1862-;, lt may secure a good
many of the European bondholders for the lower
rate of interest. But they say that jost so long
as there is a difference between com and paper,
Investment will seek State and railroad securi?
ties that pay a higher rate of interest. The sub?
stance of this ls, that the success of a pending
loan at a lower rate of interest depends entirely
- ?pen ?he reewnrption of specie payments.
There is some hope for Virginia yet. General
Canby's presence herc has not been able to turn
the President's head against his own message.
Brant says that he will stand by what he said lu
favor of Virginia; and he hopes that Congress wlU
not undo aU that has been done in that State by
adopting Sumner's bill exacting the test oath
and turning over matters generally. But there
ia no doubt that the Radicals are fired up. The
Georgia bili whetted their appetite, and they may
command a majority In beth Houses yet to put
on the screws and give them another turn. Gov
ernor Walker and his friends have been pretty
MLfldent, until within a short time, that the
State would be admitted without much opposl
tion; but they have discovered that most of the
carpet-bag Congressmen are arrayed under Ben.
Ratler,- awaiting his beck which way they shall
goj^nd it ls pretty evident that the old mischief
maker has turned against the present Virginia
The first thing on the calendar of the House,
when it reassembles in January, is the contested
?lection case of Simpson against Wallace, and the
committee intend to call it up as a privileged
question and have it decided the first week. The
.ommittee, pending the actual contest, decided
last session that, prima Jamie, Mr. Simpson was
entitled to theseat, and lt ls understood that they
now sustain that decision by declaring that he
was legally cleated to it. It ls hard to see how,
?yen as partisan a committee as this one is, lt ceald
decide otherwise, for Mr. Simpson's majority was
over four thousand.
The Cubans will make another effort to be re?
cognized. They hare already asserted that the
administration is changing front on thc question,
and that this wUl turn the tide In their favor In
Congress. They live on their hopes. Inquiry ia
official quarters shows that there is no truth In
the sensational dispatch that the President and
Cabinet arc discussing the propriety of recogniz?
ing the insurgents. They have nothing to base a
change of views on, and the release of the Spau
lsh gunboats sealed the situation for the present.
Even Sumner has taken pains to deny that lie is
not hostile to recognition, and adds that he isas
much opposed to lt now as ever.
There are no developments showing that the
Alabama claims negotiations are going on here
through Mr. Thornton, and lt is not believed that
anything will de done in the premises before
spring-notwithstanding that it u claimed that
the transfer of the negotiation? here wo'tl^ hasten

-One of the last attempts to bring ridicule upon
Mrs. If. B. Stowe on account of lier Byron article,
is an elaborate pacer entitled "The True Story of
Mrs. Shakespeare's Life." The writer proceeds to
sketch the position of the "unhappy but devoted
wife,"'who has yet to be heard; then glances at
the lapse of Mr. Shakespeare "into the depths of
secret criminal homicide," and with some inge?
nuity culls a variety of passages from the plays
in which remorse and self-accusation are ex
pressed. The parallel with the Byron article ls
kept np. "Many women," says the satirist,
"would have been utterly crushed by such a dis?
closure; some would have fled from him immedi?
ately, and exposed and denounced the crime.
|Mrs. Shakespeare did neither. She would neither
leave her husband nor betray him; nor would she
for one moment justify his sin, and hence came
thirty-two years of convulsive struggle, In wir-h
sometimes for a time the good angel appeared to
gain ground, and then the evil one returned with
sevenfold vehemence. His eldest daughter, Su?
sannah, for whom Iiis preference is snrplaln'7
shown in his will, became the partner of his guilt."
The revelation is made by Mrs. Harriet B. Chers
tow, one of the pilgrim mothers, who, before quit?
ting her native land, was sent for by Mrs. Shakes?
peare, and intrusted with the seeret.
-A correspondent who has accu the Russian
crown jewels says, they?are kept in the highest
room of the palace. The staircases are lofty and
the ascent is tedious. Four tried and faithful
servants of the realm keep watch and ward-two
within and two without. The great Orloff dia?
mond turned its basilisk resection full upon me.
This overtops the Koh-i-noor, by eight carats in
weight, and I am satisfied thc greenish tint and
the flaw lesseu it only to the grovelling niiud.

Emperor and Empress were adorned with
noble jewels ; the former resembling a patri?

summit a cross formed of five magnificent dia?
monds, aud supported by a very large, uncut,
spiral ruby. Eleven great diamonds, in a folia?
ted arch rising from the the front and back, sup?
port this mhy and cross, assisted by a hoop of
pearls. The band for the hrow carries twenty
eight large brilliants. The orb is surmounted by
a great sapphire, greenish and blue, and a huge
and very long diamond. The coronet of the Em?
press ls a beautiful mass of exquisite gems.
Apart from those above mentloaed, and a lot ol'
great emeralds, the collection is not so striking
as that of Saxony. This may be traceable to the
fact that much of it still retains its old silver
setting, not calculated fer the best advantage?
ous display. It is kept covered up with old linen
FASHIONS FOR THE NEW YEAR.
Hints from Jennie June.
In her Fashion lotter lor January 1. 1870.
Mrs. Jennie June Croly says:
The dress of the ladies who really lead eociety
is remarkable for u certain mediu-val simplicity,
and for an entire absence of that "Girl of the
Period" air which characterizes street prome?
naders and the frequenters of_ mqgtjnlates^.af..
public resort. The style of dress ls verv much
that of Faust's Marguerite-the colors are toned
down to tints, purity of outline is preserved; and
a beautiful harmony of tone characterizes near?
ly every costume.
It ls quite the mode now to make carriage and
visiting costumes with round skirts, aud add to
them a trained casaque or oversklrt, which eau
by a simple process, be looped up Into a volu?
minous drapery, or allowed to train the full
length, If required. An elegant costume of this
kind consisted of a skirt of green faille (corded
silk,) trimmed with two graduating flounces,
separated by embroidered velvet bands; over
this ls a trained casaque of green velvet, a
shade darker than the silK, enriched with a bor?
der of shaded green embroidery, edged with a
rich frltge. The train is festooned by loops and
Somewhat dur?rent from these ls the trained
skirt, worn with a basque and short sleeves. In
these costumes the train ls usually of gros gralu,
the basque aud short skirt of velvet, which may
then be woru for visiting or the promenade with?
out the train. The oversklrt is a yard and a half
long at the back, and consists of two Tull breadths
and two sloping side breadths, which recede, al?
lowing thc front of the velvet skirt to be seen.
Very rich dinner dresses of velvet or thick silk
(which seems to have superseded satin to a great
extent) are made quite plain, of great distinction
from the new Marie Antoinette collar of Valen?
ciennes lace, which forms a sort of stomacher as
well as collar, and are quite imposing.
VELVET AND VELVET TRIMMING*.
Velvet is very fashionable this seasou, and
those who cannot afford the genuine article sport
velveteen. I suppose everybody knows the differ?
ence between velvet and velveteen ls that one is
made of silk and the other of cotton. Velveteen
used to be employed for the "knee breeches"
wbtch men wore more than a quarter wi a cen?
tury since. It is now used for ladies'suits, for
boys' suite, and fur cloaks and basques by women
whose tastesiarc somewhat fine and means limit?
ed. When velveteen made its debut here, about
four years ago, it was three dollars per yard; now
lt is one dollar twenty five, and the qualitv, if
anything, ls better, lt has the merit of being
warm and looking very well while it is new; but
lt ls not very durable, and will not stand much
exposure. A very simple Lyons velvet suit, how?
ever, costs ?Jiu, while a handsome velveteen
could be got for less than fifty dollars; so, or
course, if there is a distinction there is a differ?
There ls no fabric so handsome as velvet-no
other (excepting lace) so. becoming to a woman.
Perhaps that ls the reason that a velvet dress or
a velvet cloak is the ambition of so man v women's
lives. Yet black is the popular shade this winter,
but blue black is better for wear. It han more
elasticity, ls less easily flattened, and the color
does not change or tura rusty, as the jet Muck is
apt to do.
The casabe with the full tournure at the back,
is Hie fashionable garment of the seasou; aud, il
the material is thirty-two inches wide, requires
only three yards. For some years past handsome
velvet has ranged Hom fifteen to twenty and
twenty-five dollars per yard; a very good "velvet
can now be obtained ft?r len and twelve, and
liici'C is a nr5 lair quality or cloaking velvet at
eiffht "fe- iM ?ecreasM*,i,ut have uot
reached the gold standard yet.
The richest trimmings for Velvet consists of
bands of ostrich feathers, heading lace, lt is v.rv
effective, very frail, and very cosily. The Frenen
cloaks are never trimmed with it. The French
are too good economists-they trim velvet with
fur and with guipure lace.
Paille (thick corded silk) is, however, the new
and most popular trimming for velv-t. Nothing
can be prettier upon It than bauds of thick gros
grain piped with fine folds of -atiu. The skirts uf
velvet suits are sometimes trimmed wu h bands
of gros grain, but are often made perfectly plain
and finished upon the lower edge with a piping of
thick silk or antin.
If anything has been needed io prove how
much o? the hair now worn is totally and entirely
false, it would have been abundantly supplied by
the revolution which has tal.cn place ia the style
of the chiguou.
Lust winter il was a huge bunch worn ou thc
top of the head and surrounded hy frizzles and
light curls. Now it consists of long, massive
braids, impossible tts the product of a single head
(provided they were real hair.) worn from the
back of the head down Into the nape vf thc ncl.s,
and even tower.
The change is so entire that i: render* now
Chignons obligatory for those who wish t.j bc con?

Official Dispatches from thc Ciilinn
Leaders-Operations of Two Months
-Executions of Prisoners on Dolli
Sides-Attempts to Assassinate Cuban
Leaders-Murders of Women and Chil?
Senor Jose M. Lenas, "Envoy Extraordinary
and Minister Plenipotentiary or the Republic or
Cuba,'" at Washington, has received by special
messenger, official news from the Cuban leaders
on the Island, of their military operations be?
tween August and October 4.
TUE ATTACK ON LAS l'LNTAS.
Their storr of tlie attack on thc town of Las
Funtas, in the middle of August, differs widely
from that received from Spanish sources. Ac?
cording to these dispatches the attack was made
br an army of 1900 men, supported by one piece
o? artillery, all under the command ol the Cuban
general-iuchief, on the ICth or the mouth. The
forces were divided into several columns, and
the attack was made from the north, south and
east. After lighting several hours, during which
the artillery was used incessantly, the Cuban
column-to quote from the report
'.With Hie cry or fir? Cuba Libre, advanced
amid a rain ?r shot in a line as unshaken as
though moved by a slugle mau. Arter a des?
perate hand-to-hand tight, the enemy was rorced
rrom the houses or the town, which they had oc?
cupied, and retreated within their entrench?
ments. Thc sun then rose to illuminate thc first
triumph or Cuban arms on that glorious day.
The population was In our power. One hundred
and ?tf?v 0? thc enemy had taken reruge in the
prison aiid converted lt into a real fortress. The
reinalmler of the garrison (led to thc plaza, which
was protected by barricades having been thrown
across all the avenues leading Into lt. They had
located their artillery in the church and a high,
strong house. At 10 A. IL we captured the prison.
The enemv. arter assassinating a large number
or prisoners whom they had confined there a
long time previously, abandoned their extempore
fortress and tied to the grand plaza. They left
seventeen of their dead soldiers, fifty-odd mus?
kets and a huge number of cartridges, a large
quantitv el cups and other material of war; also
a battle ila?, which was left unrolled. Firin?
was kept up Incessantly, and thc enthuslasjn of
our troops increased with each charge."
But their successes were not the forerunners of
victory. When so much hud been accomplished;
when the .Spanish soldiers bad been driven from
the heights, their ting had been shot away and
their fire had been fora while silenced, the ammu?
nition of the Cubans began to grow scarce. It
was then resolved to make au entrance through
the sides or the houses. The work ortearlnjr
down thc wall wus h<">giin, but just when a breach
was nearly made, the commander-in-chief gave
orders to retreat, he having been advised of the
approach or reinforcements of fresh troops. The
dispatches report that thc troops were at Urst
determined to disobey the order, so confident
were they ol speedy "victory. The retreat, or
course, was made in "gou: order."'
EXECUTION Ol' PRISONERS.
The Cubans carried off upward or two hundred
arms from the military hospital. Adosen or more
flags und a quantity or small things. Twenty
seven prisoners taken were shot lu retaliation,
Cubaus having been killed by the enemy within
the walls of the prison. The enemy confessed to
a loss of one hundred and two killed; the Cubans
or twenty-six killed and eighty-seven wonnded.
Many of "the Spanish troops were killed by the
bursting or shells.
THE rOUCY Ol' ASSASSINATION.
It is asserted that the pian of General Caballero
de Bodas ls to get rid of the Cuban chief by ussas
siltation. Brigadier-General Luis Figucrdo, it is
said, was the Ilrst selected for the assassins. Ou
this point the official report says:
"A Spanish soldier, who had deserted and join
ed lils command, became inspired with a love for
the General, a\d voluntarily confessed tiiat the
object of his enlisting was to assassinate him. It
is unnecessary to say that the Intended assassin
Other attempts to assassinate are thus reported
About the middle ot July four men deserted the
camp or General Modesto Diaz. After two months'
absence they presented themselves In the cauipof
General Louis Marcano, successor to General Diaz
In command or the Buyanio Dlstrlc . They said
they had remained on the Manzanillo roads an
laid ambushes for smull bodies of Spaniards. .
rew days alterward General Marcano was pro
vided with a camp guard to take the place or his
eseort. which bo had sent off to reconnoitre, and
> theee-tonr uicu were or the number. One of them
was mude sentinel, lu the middle or the night
the sentinel gave un outcry as a signal of alarm
All at llrst supposed that they had been surprised
by thc enemy, roi- these four men rushed upon thc
general. Tho one In advance was killed by Cap
tain Nicholas Chala, when thc other then tied.
The Marcano brothers euell received two serious
wounds. Not lou?; since another murderer pre
sented himself to the general in-ClUef, expressing
a desire to join lils escort. Thc villanous appear?
ance of the man caused Ins being searched, when
a passport was found in his shirt signed by the
secretary or General DeRodas. Ile ls now await?
ing trial as u spy. From notices received from
Manzanillo it H ascertained that thc Spanish au
thorities have sent more men to murder General
SKIRMISHES AND BATTLES.
Successes ol thc Cubans In several skirmishes
are reported, in which invariably the loss or the
enemy was great, while that of the revolutionists
was marvellously small. The camp of General
Marcano, at Buena YiMa, was attacked from tht
front and rear on the morning of the 2Jd of Sep?
tember, and after untiling four hours er more the
enemy abandoned the Held, leaving forty horses
and some aaiaiunitlou. Before leaving, the ene?
my burned a large number or houses and killed
thirty countrymen who had taken refuge in them.
The town was soon after entirely abandoned by
the Spanish troops, wno made their camp at
Puerto el Padre.
WOMEN KILLED HY TUE SPANISH.
It is asserted in thc dispatches that thc span?
ish have murdered women und children In this
section and committed other atrocities.
"Before leaving they assassinated numerous
citizens whom they had taken from the neighbor?
hood. Among them were seven ladies and live
children. Our enemy, lu lils Impotence to con?
quer, relates these atrocious deeds as victories,
and reports all persons assassinated as killed lu
buttle. Among thousands of barbarous acts of
this class the case of Don Juan Sanchez Yzagulrre,
a distinguished lawyer of Manzanillo, may be
mentioned. He had been prostrated for a long
time.with a lung complaint, and had retired
with his family to his estate, near Sagua. His
house was attacked. Ile could not lice. An
enemy, a volunteer, once bis friend, endeavored
to save him, when both were shot. A iew days
after the occurrence the Spanish troops discov?
ered some families in the mountains, and de?
spoiled them of ail their wearing apparel. The
widow of senor Yzagulrre refused to give up
her jewels voluntarily, and was brutally forced
to resign Hiern. They then compelled her to
sign a letter of thanks for their kind intentions,
which has since been extensively published.
Tills letter of thanks was addressed to the Span?
ish chier. Juan Lopez del Compillo, the same who
killed her husband.

English Mechanics-English Servants
-A Glance at Domestic Details.
A letter trom Sheffield, England, to a Pitts?
burg paper, says;
No part of England is so rich in mechanical In?
terest as birmingham and Sheffield. Sheffield is
to the workshops of Pittsburg what New Castle ls
to the coal mines. At I'lttsburg "you are in the
habit or boasting of a three or Ave million tow.
TUe rich stores or coal Ivlnjt In the neighborhood
of this city and Durham yield upwards of sixteen
million ions annually, the' greater portlun of
which is oonveved away by sea. The workshops
or Sheffield afford even a stronger contrast to
those of Pittsburg. At least two thousand work?
men are cmplovcd in Sheffield In the manufacture
of spring knives alone. The life of a cutler is a
hard one. Thc registry of deaths shows this. It
is stated a? a positive fact that thc number #f
cutlers lu Sheffield is less now than lt waa twenty
years ago. When, with the curiosity natural to
my countrvinen, I inquired into the cause or the
decrease iii the force. I was referred by un in?
telligent workman to an extract Dom an English
'.blue Cook," bearing upon the condition ol the
English working classes. From this 1 was led to
believe that the causes operating to diminish the
force are, lu many instances, thc result of ne?
glect, ignorance, and occasionally for the lack of
the common necessaries ofllfe. It ls only within
a recent period, I am informed, that funs had
been Introduced to drive away the fine particles
of steel aud stone dust which are so destructive
to human life. These were first put up by the
workmen. A great deal of the grinding is done
on dry stones, and wherever these are used, fans
are essential preventatives of premature disease
and death. Children of all ages are to be round
in the workshops of Sheffield employed In thc un?
healthy occupation of grinding cutlery-poor,
wan, sicklv looking lads-who work for three or
four shilling.-: per week, mr ten, twelve or
thirteen hours per day. 1 asked one of
these kids one day, who was grinding scis?

teen." The ignorance of the workmen ls pitiable,
as pitiable as their poverty. Some of them are so
Ignorant as to bc unable to answer questions such
us any schoolboy in the United States would re?
spond to promptly; ns, for instance, the names of
relgntug monarchs, the ruler of their own coun?
try, the established religion, Ac, Ac. Boys *f
twelve aud fourteen nie unable to tell the name
of their native country. Such, In brief, ls the extent
of the Information possessed by some of the
competitors or American mechanics, their
very poverty aud degradation Instead of ap?
pealing to the sympathies of their employers,
In many instances only serves to render the
task of beating down their prices easier. One
sees what material was at hand herc for building
up trades'unions. Over worked, ill-fed and under?
paid, it required no cxtradordlnary talent to ex?
cite the worst passions of these pauper workmen;
for the majority of them to-day can barely earn
the necessaries ef life. Fancy the father or seven
children toiling eleven hours a day for three
shillings und sixpence. The cutler who realizes
eighteen shillings or a pound per week, Heady
wages, counts himself fortunate.
KATES OK I.ABOlt.
One thing slrlkes me as remarkable in my jour?
neyings:-the variation In the price of labor. In
some of the cathedral towns, and in districts re?
mote from the great commercial and manufac?
turing centres, carpenters, jnaswrers, palmers,
bricklayers ami masons receive less than three
fourths the amount paid In thc great cities.
This, I am told, is owing to thc high prices pre?
vailing In thc business centres. On the other
hand, the mechanic-say the carpenter-who is
employed in a country village is. entitled lo cer?
tain perquisites denied his brother in the city,
and not uufrequentlv quits lils work when a given
amount ls accomplished. This ls a common
occurrence especially in some of the agricultural
districts. When a laborer (or with us a field
hand) has accomplished what ht; considers a fair
day's wor?, he goes home or Idles lils time. Thc
pay of the furut hand is scant, but as inuny of
them have a patch of ground adjoining their cot?
tages, which is made ready for the seed by their
employer, so that the only outlay is the cost of
the seed, they manage to gain a comfortable liv?
ing when they are industrious and frugal.
WHAT ALS AND TORTE ll COST ENGLISH WORKMEN.
The great curse of English operatives is ale and
porter, and the so-called amusements. This ls
particularly noticeable in thc manufacturing
towns. The puddler, roller or shingler, who
makes wages such as should suffice to support
him iu his old agc. ls sure to be familiar with thc
liveliest tap rooms, and accustomed to running
up a weekly peere lhat taxes his family with a
filth, perhaps a fourth of his earnings. Thc
amount of ale and porter Imbibed by the opera?
tives of thc English rolling mills is absolutely
frightful. Every one drinks. Satr-lay afternoon
and Sunday ls given up to the n,: : systematic
swilling. Hy Monday, however, the bout is over,
and the men arc at work again. I am inclined to
think that ir it were not for thc guzzling propen?
sities of English operatives, they would not fall
so far behind American mechanics in securing
comfortable homes. The moment an English
workman leaves the mill, foundry, or forge, he
may bc found, as a rule, adding" to this score.
The passion for amusement is surprising. What
with circuses, side shows, races, rat pits, and
nondescript performauces of every description,
generally o?an indifferent, though not positively
evil character, fhe English operatives in the large
cities are never at a loss where to direct their
steps. As a rule, they live but for the day. giving
no heed to the morrow, careless what it inav
have m store for them.
A NOVEL SYSTEM.
Iii a number of large cities, in every one in fact,
including my present abiding place, my attention
was directed to a somewhat novel system pre?
vailing among lue B?OCmakcrs, tailors and va?
rious oilier sedentary occupations. Take the first
mentioned us un Illustration. A shoemaker visits
any large city in search of employment. Having
secured an employer, he next procures a "sit
llug." i. e. shop-room in an apartment with ten,
twenty or fifty of his feUow-craftsmeu. Bay In
garret or upper room. He pays for the *-*?ltiiiiir."*
or bench, perhaps two nhilhngs a week. Ile pays
six pence or nine pence for his cooking, and pro?
vides his landlady with thc exact amount neces?
sary to purchase his morning, noonday and
evening meal, lie knows the cost to a farthing,
orders ni*breakfast, duiner or supper to suit his
whim, pays over thc amount, an-i has it set up
Prices of all kinda have advanced greatly in
England during the past few years. The rates of
labor have advau ed, aid linn-'rates kcCppaCd
With them. A sack of flour (twenty stunt-, 1:10
pounds) varies according to quality, from two
pounds to two rounds six shillings ($12 and
$P) MI.) Slams range from ten peuce io a shil?
ling p'-r pound. 1 am told that thc best son,..
times brings thirteen and fourteen pence. Choice
steak nine and len pi ncc. Itoiliug meal from six
to seven, roast eight pence per pound. Vegeta?
bles are generally cheaper than with u?. Linter
vanes greatly. In this section of thc country it
is worth from Qflccn to eighteeu pence per pound,
which, convened iutu currency, is a trifle more
than the average pi ices in the States. Pish ls Hie
soleclicau article, and these sometimes goto
waste. The high price of meat ls doubtless su
purinduccd by thc cattle disease.

CHARLESTON, May 16, 1868.
Mr. J. B. RUSSELL, one of oar careful aud Intel?
ligent Pharmaceutists and Apothecaries, hue sub?
mitted to my examination the formula for the
preparation of a Soothing Cordial prepared and
vended by him.
It affords me pleasure to express a favorable

particular coses or the diseases or children, whish
it ls designed to relieve.
E. GEDDINGS, M. D. '
Having had occasion to prescribe RUSSBIX'S
Soothing Cordial in severe cases or Bowel Com?
plaints In children and delicate reinales, I have
been much pleased with its effects. 1 consider tt
a valuable medicine in all cases, in which it may
be advisable to avoid the use of anodyne, and par?
ticularly for family use, as it is perfectly safe.
W. T. WRAGG, M. D.
CHARLESTON, S. C., 18SS.
Dear Sir-I have used your Soothing Cordial for
Diarrhoa iu teething children, and lind it a very
excellent preparation. It has a great advantage
over most preparations of the kind in contalning
uo Opium or Narcotic.
When these are required they can bc added ia
proportions applicable to the case.
1 therefore eau recommend its usc in thc a free
Nous for which it is designed.
Respectfully veurs, Ac,
T. L. OCHER. M. D.
CllAULESTON, S. C.. 1868.
I certify that I have most successfully used
RUSSELL'S Soothing Cordial in thc Summer Com?
plaints of infants. He lias fully exhibited the In?
gredients of bis remedy, and the tedious method
tif preparation. 1 recognize Hi? prescription
containing uo anodyne whatever-as a most safe
and efficacious one in bowel Affections of children.
