AMERICAN* STEAMSHIP LINES TO EU?
ROPE.-Between New York and Eu?
rope but one American line of steam?
ships now plies, that betweeen New
York and Havre, upon which the
steamships Arago and Fulton are
running. But this line does not pay,
and the owners of these steamers are
seriously considering tho policy of |
abandoning the business and selling
them. When these vessels first sail?
ed to Europe in 1856, they made thc
trip generally in twelvo d-.ys and
were quito popular, but the rival
English lines have since built faster
vessels, and these have been almost
deserted. It really seems that the last
American line between New York,
and Europe is to be abandoned, and
the fact is traceable to the reason

Annual Income over $3,250,000!
1,300 policies issued, and receipts
over $300,000 last month.
Over 13,000 policies issued the past
year-the largest number ever issued
in a single year by any Life Insur?
ance Company in theUnited States.
In the year ending November 1,
1SG5, its losses were fewer than those
of any other Company, in proportion
to the number of policies. (See
Eleventh Annual Report of Massa?
chusetts Iusurauee Commissioners,
In proportion to income, its per
centage of expenditure was LQTvER
than that of any other Company.
(See New York Insurance Report,
Its success in doing the LARGEST
BUSINESS with the FEWEST

TURE, enables it to .pay its policy?
holders an ANNUAL DIVIDEND of
FIFTY PER CENT., with as good a !
prospect of increasing it as any other
The unparalleled success of the

its admirable plan of transacting its
business to suit the wants of the peo?
ple, giving'them policies at actual
cost, embracing NEW and IMPOR?
TANT FEATURES, which secure to
them nil the nd vantages that can bc
derived from a policy of Life Insur?
All who -wish to avail themselves of
the benefits of Life Insurance, should
examine the ^Etna's plans for the
same by calling upon any of its agents
at their place of business.

THIRTY LINES OF C O 31 M O X
SEXSE.-Reader, having glanced over the !
editorials and the news in this journal,you j
turn to the advertisements, saying to your- j
self, "These are published by tito writers
to servo their own interests." Perhaps so.
But it is no less true that it concerns your ?
interests lo read these thirty lines.. If you [
are healthy,'it is presumed you wish to
continue so. If sick, of course you desire'
to be relieved. In cither case, it is impor?
tant to yon to It ito w that HOSTETTER'S
BITTERS are the safest, surest and best
tonic and alterativo ever advertised in any
country. This is a period of the year when
the strongest need an invigcrant, for tho
oppressive heat drains the system of
strength laster than the most potent and
vigorous organization can recruit it. There- !
fore, as a preservative of health-as a pro?
tection against the devitalizing action of
heat and tho malaria it produces-you
should sustain the good constitution and
sound stamina with which nature has
blessed you with this pei rless Vegetable
It can scarcely bc necessary to urge upon
tho weak and ailing the importance of ac?
quiring by safe means the strength which
unassisted nature donica them. All who
are thus circumstanced aro invited to give
thc Bitters a trial. Before they have taken
tho elixir three days, in conformity with
the directions, they will acknowledge with
gratitude its genial operation. They will
rind that it imparts mental aa well as nerv?
ous energy, and regulates all the internal
functions admirably. This is the expe?
rience of tho debilitated and depressed,
and in making these statements the pro?
prietors only echo the language of innu?
merable testimonials. Dre IS fG
