When Mr. Greeley was in California,
ovations awaited him at every town. He
bad written powerfnl leaders in the 2W

whioh had greatly endeared him to the
citizens of the Golden State. And,
therefore, they made much of him when
he went to see them.
At one town, the enthusiastic populace
tore his celebrated white coat to pieces,
and carried tbe pieces home to remem?

The citizens of Plaoerville prepared tc

Weekly to the jackal habit of desecrating
graves. He has drawn a caricature,
ooarse in every respeot, representing
Horace Greeley clasping the hand of
Wilkes Booth aoross the grave of Lin?

must have a basis of truth; this one is
utterly untrue. No mau would dare pre?
tend that Mr. Greeley ever did, or now
does, regard that aot with uny feeling
but execration; then, if he fraternizes
now with thu spirit of that act, ho does
it by accepting the Baltimore nomina?

act of the South; thoy who approved it
wore few, and no mau believes-what?
ever his first thought ut tho timo muy
have boen-that the great body of the
Southern people had any sympathy with
Booth. To supposo that the people of
one-half of tho Unitod States are assas?
sins in disposition, is simply monstrous,

proves anything, for if to extend the

will hardly appreciate them us they are

title, "A Journal of Civilization," ap
peering abovo such a picture as this
may bo taken as unconscious irouy, am
it is a disgrace to the United States tha
a publication containing such a defile

be searched in vain for any advocacy o

The "bell?! beilul 1 belUlU" have a
fioetioal association, whether when ring
og oat in melodious ohimes an ovation
to the newly-wedded or tolling a solemn
dirge to the recently departed, and have
obtained throughout all ages a firm hold
ou the sympathies of mankind. The
practical association owes ita origin to
our own day and time, when the girls of
the period patronize them iu miniature
as pendants for their ears, and the young
bucks display them as ornaments on their
j watch-chains. It must be confessed,
however, that iu utilitarianism, Mr.
I Hudson G. Wolfe, of New York city, is
entitled to a premium, for henceforth
and throughout all time a bell, ot what?
ever magnitude, shape or souud, must
inevitably be assooiated in one's mind
with "WOLFE'S BELL SCHNAPPS," in
every respect the boat stimulant and
tonio of the age.

"THE Lira OF THE FLESH IS THE BLOOD."
This hoing tho fact, it ia very obvious that
when the blood becomes corrupted the whole
system becomes corrupt alao. To relieve Que,
the true policy undoubtedly ia to direct the
remedy to the source ot the di soaso. It is in
this manner that Dr. Tutt's .Sarsaparilla and
Qaeen'ii Delight acts. Its specific effect ia on
the blood; it purifies it, vitalizes it, and expe'a
all distemper from the ayatem.
Being free from violent minerals, it ia adapt?
ed to general nae. The old and young may
use it; the moat delioate female, at any time,
may take it; the week and enfeebled will be
atrengthened by it; the tender iufant, who
mav have inherited disease, will be cured by
For Syphilis, and ull ita tra?na of evils, it ia
a euro autidote.
