Mass Meeting at Lexington C. II.
According to previous announce?
ment, a meeting of the loyal citizens
of Lexington District, irrespectivo of
color or previous condition, was held
at tho Court House, on tho 9th in?
stant. The meeting was largely at?
tended, and manifested great enthu?
Judge L. Boozer waa called to tho?
chair, and A. M. Boozer, Esq., re?
quested to net as secretary. The
chairman stated the object of the
meeting in some sound, practicable
and emphatic remarks, substantially
The object of this meeting is, ns I
understand, to take into considero*.ion
tho Act of Congress, entitled "An
Act to provide for the more eflicieut
government of tho rebel States,"
passed March 2, 1807, and, also, au
Act supplementary thereto, entitled
"An Act supplemental to on Act en-,
titled 'An Act to provide for tho moro
efficient government of tho rebel
States," passed March 2, 18G7, and
to facilitate restoration, and to de?
clare our sentiments in relation
thereto. They are tho laws of the
land, and must be obeyed, and, in
my judgment, it is tho part of wis?
dom and sound policy, ns woll ns of
patriotism, tb accept their provisions
in good faith, and tho sooner we
signify our acceptance the better.
Every day it is delayed increases the
difficulty and embarrassments of re?
storation. There can bo no difference
of opinion as to tho importance, to
us, of a speedy restoration to the
Union.. There was considerable di?
versity of opinion on tho subject of
secession; but now there can be no
difference of opinion amongst all
good citizens. As for myself, I
stand now where I always have on
this question. Myopen, avowed and
persistent opposition to the dissolu?
tion of the Union is known to you
all, and now I am ready and willing
to adopt any and all suitable mea?
sures for its speedy and permanent
The chairman then proceeded to
urge upon all loyal citizens the duty
of registering as voters whenover an
opportunity is offered, and counseled
tho colored citizens as to the danger
c f being led astray by demagogues.
He congratulated them that they en?
joyed a right in this and the other
Southern States not conferred on
thom in any State of tho Union out?
side of New England, except in New
York, where there is a property qual?
ification. Here the speaker was
loudly and repeatedly cheered. Tho
speaker went on to address himself
to the colored portion cf tho meet:
ing. He told thom that they were,
as yet, inferior in mental culture to
the whites, but timo would bring
about the proper chance in this re?
spect. They must bo patient, honest,
industrious, and all will come right
in the end. If they are but true to
themselves and the country, all will
At tlie conclusion of these remarks,

mittee of nine were appointed, con?
sisting of tho following gentlemen,

Whilo the committee wero absent,
several very interesting addresses
were mado by Lieut. Col. O. H.
Moore, commanding tho 6th U. S.
Infantry, Andrew Worthy, (colored,)
Gabriel Simpson, (colored,) and Da?
niel Thompson, (colored.) Col. Mooro
took occasion to say to tho colored
citizens present that they had had
conferred upon them a high preroga?
tive; that they must endeavor to use it
wit!- discretion; that they can wholly
confide in thoso who had adhered
nolly' to tbo Union, which had
caused their deliverance and advance?
ment. Listen to the counsel of these
tried and patriotic citizens amongst
you, and all will bo right. He was
enthusiastically applauded through?
out; The colored speakers who suc?
ceeded Col. Mooro made very sound
and patriotic remarks, and completely
abashed the prejudiced disloyalists
who have so ofteu made aspersions
against their characters. Their re?
marks were open and ardent against
those- who attempted to destroy tho
Union, and aro now clamoring in op?
position to Congress. Thoy express?
ed themselves strongly against euch.

A Chicago despatch says a distiller
operating at Bock Island has been
cheating tho Government to a largo
extent, by shipping whiskey to Chi?
cago aud other points at night and
on Sundays, during tho absence of
tho inspectors. It has been ascer?
tained that 29,000 gallons, valued at
$58,000, were clandestinely disposed
of in this way. He has been over?
hauled by a Treasury Department
CROP PROSPECTS.-Tho accounts
which reach ns from various sections*
of the District speak of the prospect
of n- largo crop of wheat. The
weather for the past three weeta,
with tho exception of a few days,
has been quite* favorable to farming
operations; and wo believe but one
spirit actuates our farmers, that - of
energy and a determination to do
their utmost". Tho efforts which all
are making to relieve the country
from its embarrassed condition,
caused by. th? scarcity nf money,
is truly praiseworthy. With but
little to encourage "a largo portion
of them, they have, gone to work
with disadvantages pressing on every
side,- determined to moko a showing,
Srovided the seasons aro good,
'hat there can be no general pros?
perity until it is dug out of the
ground is a foregone conclusion, and
the inducements of high prices war?

do his best.-Lancaster Ledger.
PAINFUL, DISAPPEARANCE.-Wo re?
gret to learn that Mr. Wm. Langha,
a German by birth, and for many
years a resident of this District, left
his homo, near Grove Station, last
Saturday afternoon, and has not
since been heard of, notwithstand?
ing diligent search has been insti?
tuted by his neighbors. Ho has been
suffering for some timo from ill
health. Mr. Langha is about 52
years of age, near G feet in height,
and spoke tho English language with
an accent peculiar to his nationality.
Any information concerning him
will bo gratefully received by his
wife, or may be left at this office.
Our friends of tho press aro earnestly
requested to extend this notice.
During tho masquerade ball at tho
Affaires Enfrangeres, at Paris, where
the Emperor and Empress were hid?
den ahioug tho maskers by close
fitting dominoes,.-which, as soon as
discovered, wero changed, great
amusement .was afforded by a young
English girl, who, on passing before
tho Emperor, was heard to say to her
partner, "thatgcntlemnu has changed
his domino three times, for I havo
watched. I asked his namo, and they
tell me it is the Comt'o de Ham. ?s
he so great a man that ho must not
be recognized?" His Majesty laughed
outright, and when the young lady
passed again, bowed low, to-her great
amazement and confusion.
WIFE % MURDERS AT THE JNoRTn.
Gottfried Traibel, a musician, mur?
dered his wife in Now York, on tho
16th, by cutting her throat, at their
residence, No. 33 James street. Ho
has not yet been arrested.
Martin Cane, a man of ov.^r sixty
years of age, residing in Waynesburg
County, Pa., last night strack his
"wife, while she was sleeping, two

committed suicide. Ho was disco?
vered about ll p. m., hanging to a
tree near the house. Tho doctors

Real estato is so high in some parts'
of Loudon that the purchaser now
lins almost literally to cover it with
gold to purchase it. In important
business centres in tlia't city, the sites
for recently erected buildings have
cost nearly ?700 tino square yard.
This is at tho rate of more than
?3,000,000 per acre, and,-as a Lon?
don paper computes, it takes 7,120,
000 sovereigns, lying close together
and flat, to cover an acre; so that thc
price of an aero would give it an un?
broken layer of gold of about one
third tho thickness of a sovereign.
The latest advice^ say tho Central
Pacific Railroad-tho main stem of
all the Eastern branchos tending bo
yond the Missouri-will reach tho
neighborhood of tho famous silver
mines, near Virginia City, by July
next, and that it will reduce tho cost
of getting and separating tho oro
one-half-equivalent to a saving of
about three millions a year. This is
good nows, as there may be a pros?
pect, when it is completed through,
that we may once moro finger a little
of that nearly forgotten metal. Hurry
up that railroad.
There is now living in the South?
ern portion of Camden, Lorain Coun?
ty, Ohio, a Mrs. Polly Haskins, who
is 115 j'onrs of age, having been born
in July, 1732. When the British
first landed in New London, Conn.,
she and her parents wero obliged to
quit their home-she traveling on
foot, and carrying a featherbed twen?
ty mil ' s the first day.
Not long since, Gov. Throckmorton
issued a request to tho chief justices
of the frontier Counties of Texas,
that they report tho number-killed in
their respective Counties by Indians.
Sinco that time, tho chief justices
have reported for five Counties, that
17 persons have boen killed, 12 taken
captives, and $157,875 worth of pro?

THE TRIUMPH OF ART!
MORE TESTIMONY IN FAVOR OF
Heinitsh's Queen's Delight.
EXTRACTS FROM LETTERS: "Tho
Queen's Delight is beginning to
awaken Gio attention of our physicians.
Its remarkable curative power is soon in
its wonderful effect upon disease. As a
blood pnritler. there is no medicine liko it
known to tho profossiou. A gentleman
told mo that his son has been taking tho
Queen's Delight, and is moro benefited by
it than by any other medicine. Ho wants
a dozen bottles."
Extract from a letter: "It is due to you
to state in this mblic manner, in order
that the people m . know tho truth, that
I have tried your Queen's Delight, and
found it not only what you said it was-"a
nure medicine"-but the best medicino I
nave ever taken for eruptions and general
bad health. I had an eruption all over my
body, with impaired digestion and disor?
dered liver, and have tried a great many
medicines without any henotit. I have
taken one bottle of your Queen's Delight,
tho eruption has disappeared, my appetite
is better, my livor and digestion is im
Eloved. I nm satisfied ono or two moro
ottles will cure me."
Extract from a lotter: "At the close of
I the war, my constitution was shattered. I
could not eat, sleep or perform any duty
whatovor, such .was my prostrate conon
; tion. Medicine and nu.-dieal aid I had in
abundance, such was my condition up to a
few months since, when I began tho uso of
ydur Queen's Delight. I havo used two
bottle?, my constitution is greatly im?
proved, my appetite is good, enjoy refresh?
ing sleep, and am able to perform "my sharo
of daily labor."
Extract from a letter-Wonderful effect
of only one bottle: "I have- used "only a
half bottle of 'Queen's Delight' for boils
and eruptions o. tho skin and itching hu?
mors of the'blood, which annoyed me very
much. I am e ntirely cured. 1 think your
medicine a valuable uno.''
A remarkable ease nf liver complaint and
hoadr.cho cured hy tho use of "Heinitsh's
Queen's Delight:" A lady of unquestioned
wortn and reputation voluntarily gives tes?
timony of the wonderful effects of thia
medicine. Sho lias boen from carly years
a martyr to headaches, caused by imper?
fect action of tho liver, producing intense
headache and pain over the eyos. Hbo has
taken only four hollies, and assures us of
the perfect cure it lias made. She now en?
joys good health.
Still another: "During last spring, I had
been troubled with obstinate chills and
fever, which, when cured, left my system
in a wrotchod condition, blood impure, and
I was afflicted with au angry, and, as I at
one time thought, an incurable, cutaneous
eruption over my entire body. Tho most
violent remedies" suggested failed to work
a euro, tint?', at tho instance <?f a friend, I
tried Dr. Heinitsh's Queen's Delight. Less
than two bottles eared me, leaving my skin
in a licalthv condition. My general health
ls as good "as ever. For such purnosos, I
have, ever since my cure, unhesitatingly
recommended your Queen's Delight."
Don't buy any but the right kind. All
genuine. Queen s Delight has tho copy-right
mark on the outside, and it is tho only
medicine which produces these wonderful
cures. For side wholesale and retail at
