Tbe Radical Steam Torture Box at
We take the following article from
tho Macon Telegraph. Such infamy
as it describes, is the . natural off?
spring of radical doctrines:
When we republished, a few days
si nco, from the .Washington National
Intelligencer, a statement, that instru?
menta of torturo had been applied,
in Fort Pulaski, to the Government
witnesses in the Ashburn case, we
did it entirely upon the responsibility
of that paper, and with an honest in?
credulity of t_e whole thing.
It seemed to us impossible of be?
lief, that torture should be applied to
witnesses in legal or military investi?
gations, under the authority of tho
United States Government, in this
the nineteenth century of the Chris?
tian era. But incredible as this
horrid stigma upon civilization,
Christianity and republicanism may
appear, we are compelled to believe
it; and that the dungeons of Fort
Pulaski have reverberated with the
half stifled groans and screams of
victims tortured by a contrivance
brought there for the purpose, in
order "to make them tell the truth,'
or, in other words, to give such
testimony as waa desired by the
In conversation with one of the
most eminent oitizens of Macon
?esterday, he assured ns that Gen
[eade explained to him in Atlanta
week before last, tho whole modus
operandi of this instrument of tor
ture. Meade described it as a box
sufficiently capacious to admit the
victim, and then arranged for com
pression by screws, by which a force
could be brought upon the prisoner
sufficient to "squeeze the breath out
of him." It was also provided with
a steam apparatus connected with the
throttling box by pipes, and, upon
turning a faucet, jets of steam were
thrown in, which added materially to
the anguish of suffocation. This
machine was applied to three of the
witnesses-Betts, Marshall and
negro-with entire efficiency. The
negro gave in, in a moment, and
cried out that he would swear to any
thing if they would only let him out
of that box.
The foregoing is the statement of
leading citizen of Macon-a man
whose word nobody doubts-as to
what was voluntarily said in his
hearing by Gen. Meade himself
Are more words wanted by way of
improvement? Is it possible to add
to the force of the facts themselves
iu showing the depth of degradation
to which radical rule has brought the
( American Government?
AN ASTOUNDING AND CONFOUNDINO
DISCOVERY.-We havo an enchanted
fahd in Alaska. Here is what a Bus
sian guide told a Californian, who
asked about a range of mountains
near Sitka: "They are mighty in
size, and cause much cold. Wonder
ful things are told of them. It is said
that in some places th ero aro deep
pools and lakes, in which dwell mon
sters-serpents as long as a fir tree
which, when they are in tho open
sea, would commit mighty damage
Oue thing which the Indians tell
for certain-that yonder, far away
the North, in the heart of these hills
there is a wonderful valley, so nar
row that only at mid-day is the face
of the sun to be seen. That valley
loy undiscovered and unknown for
thousands of years; no person
dreamed of its existence; but,
last, a long time ago, two Indiar
hunters entered it by chance, au
then what do you think they found?
They found a small tribe of unknown
people, speaking an unknown tongue,
who had lived there since the crea?
tion of the world, and without know?
ing that other beings existed.
An Eastern paper says the decks
of the steamer City of Boston, in the
recent collision on the Sound, afford?
ed Borne pitiable displays of the
selfishness of human nature. One
man fastened a life-preserver about
his body, and silenced his wife, who
was crying for one, with the words,
"Don't moke such a fuss aboutit;
perhaps you will get one before
fong." Another stalwart fellow took
a life-preserver from a young lady,
and buckled it on himself.
The latest Yankee invention is the
economic cheroot, one of which is
twice the length of the ordinary, and
herein s ithe economy. The Govern?
ment taxes cigars without regard to
length, and the application of a
knife wiU make one of these into two.
A married woman in Wisconsin
says, that when her husband is a
little drunk, he kicks her, and when
he is very drunk, she kicks him. She
congratulates herself that she does
the greater port of the kicking.
Taking things for granted is some?
times a mistake. Illustrations : Tak?
ing a woman as a wife for a lamb and
finding her a tigress; or a man as a
husband for a gentleman and finding
him a brute and a beast.
Antonousa Kastanopoulo is the
name of the Cretan girl who is fight?
ing in the revolution. She is nine?
teen years old, cannot read, smokes
cigarettes, is rather pretty, and has
500 men under her command.
Dealers in hair in Paris find the

P NATURE IS TUE GREAT PHYSI?
CIAN.-Thi? is now admitted, by the me- |
dicsl profession, aa a fundamental princi?
pio of healing science. It ie wisoly I
provided by tho human economy that |
whenever anything is wrong in the phyai
cal system, thc natural forces of the body
Aro brought to bear to expel the disease.
Tho great aim, therefore, ia to strengthen
tho natural powers. Thia has been kept
in view by tho skillful compounders of
HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTER8,
which operates to give frosh vitality to all
the organa of the body. Tho efleet of thia
medicino upon tho stomach, the livor and
the kidneys, is prompt and decisive. Tho
patient, who ia wieo enongh to qnit drug?
ging and try tho Bitters, soon feels as if j
ho had taken a now loase o.' lifo, and as he
continues the uso of the artiole he is over?
joyed to find tho streams of health cours?
ing through his frame. It is prepared
with great care, and its component parts
aro entiroly vegetable. It is free from the
objections so often urged against prepara?
tions of tho kind. As a medical agent it
has no eqnal, while its pleasing flavor and
healthful effects have made it a general
favorite. It ia froo from all properties
calculated to impair the system, and its
operations aro at once mild, soothing and
efficient. All who have used Hosteler's
Stomach Bittora attest its virtues and
commend it to uso.
Even those who aro in the enjoyment of |
perfect health frequently have need to
have recourse to tonics as preventives of j
disease. We are never too well armed
against tho assaults of "the ills that flesh
is heir to." In health or sickness this
tonic cannot be taken regularly without j
giving vitality and elasticity to tho sys
tem._'_Joly 17 t>t
