a hearing for this office and the manu?

Treatment of Meningitis ?Being in
daily receipt of letters from this and ad?
joining States, requesting a statement of I
my treatment in the.disease known as
"carebro spinal meningitis," not having!
the time to devote to ancwering these;]
communications, I have thought proper'
to givo a synoptical statement of my
treatment through the colnmns of the j
seoular press, thereby enabling the pro?
fession to employ the treatment during
the present epidemio in this und adjoin?
ing States, which I would not be ublo to
communioato through the medical press
in time for tho present season. The fol?
lowing treatment should uotbo employed
by any one but a skillful physician, as to
such this communication is addressed:
The following treatment which has
been employed by mo since tho winter of
1862 and 1863, with uniform Hticoess in
all cases where the treatment bus been
instituted within twenty-four hours after
the development of the prominent eymp
to ms: In tho first plaoe discard ull ideas
of this disease being an inflammatory
affection of .the brain and spinal cord.
irate a flannel, folded several times,
with spirits of turpentine. Apply this
along the whole course of tho spine, pass
over this, after the ordinary mode of
ironing, a oommon sad or smoothing
iron well heated. Continue this for ten
or fifteen minutes, until you have well
stimulated the spine. Iu the meantime,
givo quinine; in heroic doses, to be re?
peated every two or three hours,
uutil all Symptoms are overcome.
Follow each dose of quiuine with a
heroio dose of bromide of potassium,
combined in solutiou with an ordi?
nary dose of solid extract Hyosoyaruuti.
The object of the bromide is to con?
trol reflex aotion, and the doses should
be regulated aocording to the head and
spinal symptoms, as this is dependent
on electro-monic changes iu the periphe?
ry of the nerves. From this tho action,
or the modus operandi of the quiniuo and
bromide will bo readily understood by
the intelligent physician. Under no cir?
cumstances use a fly-blister or opiates in
the outset of this disease. Avoid ull ootd
applications to head and spine. When
I constipation exists, which is generally
the ease, use largo doses of oalomcl every
three hours until tho bowels act freely.
Physicians can rely on this treatment
when instituted in time.

sons reading this will show it to their
family physician.
The Am Line.?J. O. Hnduut, Esq.,
of the Air Line Riilroad offiae, who has
been on official business to Richmond,
Va., has returned. From him we learn
that the track will be laid over Paoolot
bridge on Friday noxt, whioh will give
better access to the trestle over Big
Thickety, located between the former
point and Oharlotto. Upon the comple?
tion of tho work at these places, the cars
will run to South Tyger, the only im?
portant construction between Spartan
burg and Greenville. Mr. Hudnut is
] confident that the oars will be running
through from Charlotte to Greenville by
the 15th March, with tho exception of
South Tyger, as the contractors aro pro
pared to get through by that time, no
matter how the weather may bo. The
bridge over Saluda Biver, on the West
side of Greenville, has been completed,
and const ruction trains now run to
George's Creek, in Pickens County, and
track-laying is going rapidly forward.

Poisoned.?We regret to announce
that Mr. Joseph Majors was seriously
poisoned on Monday !aat, by taking a
drink of cyanide potass, whioh bo mis?
took for Hostotter's bitters. Ho was in
the jewelry shop of Mr. J. A. Daniels,
when the latter offered him a drink of
the celebrated bitters above mentioned,
whioh was on tho mantel-piece, by the
side of whioh was also cyanide potass,
in the same kind of bottle. Before dis?
covering the mistake, ho drank about
eight and a half grains. He hurried to
the drug store of Benson & Sharpe im?
mediately thereafter, but before au anti-1
dote could be administered, fell upon the |
floor iu an entirely unconscious Btate.
After several attempts, a email amount
of the antidote was gotten down him,
when he showed some signs of improve?
ment. We are glad to say that he is ra?
pidly recovering, and his friends enter?
tain the hope that he will soon be en?
tirely well.?Anderson Conservator.
Jail Delivery.?On Saturday night
last, two negroes escaped from the jail
of this County, and on Tuesday night,
three more. They wero all indictod for,
or had boon convicted of larceny. Their
names are Joe Knox, Ab. Bailey, Jack
Wallace, Lnm Wallace and Stove Mc
Lellaud. Ab. Bailey, who was among
the number whioh made their oscapo
Tuesday night, was shot in tho leg by
tho guard stationed at tho jail, and re?
captured without difficulty. The others
havo not been heard from.

It has been decided, so \ge aro in?
formed, to looate the workshops of tho
Air-Line Railroad at Greenville. This
will greatly benefit that place. Already

railroad runs, sold five years ago for
$30,000; Ices than half of tho tract sold
last week for that amount. Generally
lauded property is risiug, aud on Main

Congress was over, he should, in compa?
ny with the members of his Cabinet,
make an extended Southern tour, pro?
ceeding to Now Orloaus via Richmond,
Raleigh, Columbia, Charleston, Savan?
nah, Montgomery and Mobile. From
New Orleans ho would probably proceed
North as far as Memphis, oross over to
Chattanooga, and was undecided as yet1
whether ho would return to Washington
via Knoxville or Nashville and Louis?
ville. This swinging around the South?
ern circle is int ended as an earnest of the I
good will to be inaugurated with his
second term, aud a desire to conciliate
the South by friendly deeds. In regard
to choosing a member of the Cabinet
from the Southern States, ho did not
leave an unpleasant impression on the
minds of his visitors, but deolined to give
any positive assurance. Pool, of North
Carolina, and Sawyer, of South Carolina,
are tho ambitious candidates.

The Wharton-Van Nes3 case and its
predecessor of the same nature, both as
to the time each occupied and the skill
displayed iu the prosecution and defence,
is hardly equalled in the history of crimi?
nal law in this country. The first case
of tho State against Mrs. Whartou, for
tho alleged mnrder of Gen. Ketohum,
occupied the oloso attention of the court,
tbe jury and tbe counsel for forty days.
Its investigation dovelopcd a subtlety of
chemical soienos that will hereafter rank
us a precedent iu all similar canes?not a
precedent oaloulated to guide future in?
vestigations to actuate conclusions, but
rather to throw a doubt on soieatiQo ac?
curacy, and confuse the conclusions of
courts and juries. The present case is
marked by che radical difference in con?
clusions, from the Bame facts of scientino
men. The truth is, there is more hum?
bug iu the so-oalled tests of chemical
icience und in the glorification of the
"common law right of a man to trial by
a jury of his peers," than is commonly
suspected.
Commotion in the Republican Camp.
During tho lust few days, there has evi?
dently been no little trouble and commo?
tion among certain prominent Republi?
cans at this place. And ever and anon,
we hear ugly?yea, damnable?reports,
based on good authority, concerning the
fraudulent issue*of certain checks upon
the County Treasurer, nnd the most ve?
hement threats from leading Republi?
cans of an uncompromising proseoution
of tho guilty party. But, in the absence
of one of the aoouBed, who has promised
to make an early and ample showing and
vindication of his acts in the premises,
we forbear further comment for the pre?
sent. Yet, nevertheless, "if the court
inderstand herself, and she think she
do," we would intimate that some rich
developments may be expected in a week
or two. Wait and watch?but don't con?
demn without a hearing.
