AyersSajsaQarilla
A compound remedy, deaignect to be the moat
efTcctual AUtrativ that can be made 1 It is
concentrated extract of Pant Sarsaparilln,
to combined with other substances of still
greater alterative power at to afford an effee
tire antidote for the diseases Sarteparilla it
reputed to cure. It Is believed that such a
remedy is wanted by those who suffer from
Strumous complaints, and that one which will
accomplish their cure mutt prove of immense
service to this large elate of our afflicted fullow
cltizent. How completely this compound will
do it has been proven by experiment on many
of the wont cases to be found of the following
complaints! ' ' ..,(....

, This, compound will Uwound a sroat pro
motor of health, whoa taken in the spring, to
expel the foul humors which fester in the
blood at that season of the year. By the time
ly expulsion of thera many rankling disorders
are nioDed in the bud. Multitudes can. bv
the aid of title remedy, spare themselves from
tne endurance or loul eruptions ana ulcerous
sores, through which the system will strive to
rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to do
this through the natural channels of tho body
br an alterative medicine. Cleanse out the
vitiated blood whenever you find its impurities
Dursting tnrougn the skin in pimples, eruptions,
or sores: cleanse it whon von find it is ob
structed and sluggish in the veins ; cleanse it
Whenever It is fbuL and your feelings will toll
you when. Even where no particular disorder
is felt,' people enjoy better health, and live
longer, for cleansing; the blood. Keep the
blood healthy, and all is well t but with this
pabulum of life disordered, there can be no
lasting health, Sooner or later something
must go wrong, and the great machinery of
me is disordered or overthrown.
' Sareaparllla has, and deserves much, the
reputation of accomnlislunir these ends. But
the world has been egrcgiously deceived by
preparations of it, partly because the drug
alone has not all the virtue that is claimed
for it, but more because many preparations,
pretending to be concentrated extracts of it.
contain but little of the virtue of Sarsoporilla,
or any thing else.
... During late years the publio have been mis
led by large bottles, pretending to give a Quart
of Extract of Sarsapaiilla for ono dollar. Most
of these have been frauds upon the sick, for
they not only contain little, if any, aarsapa
rilla, but often no curative properties whatev
er. Hence, bitter and painful disappointment
has followed tho use of the various extracts of
Sarsartarilla which flood the market, until the
name itself is justly despised, and has become
synonymous with imposition and cheat. - Still
we call this compound Sarsaparilla, and intend
to supply such a remedy as shall rescue the
name from the load of obloquy which rests
upon it. ' And we think we have' ground for
believing it has -virtues which ore irresistible
br the ordinary run ef the diseases, it is Intend
ed to cure. In order to secure their complete
eradication from the system, the remedy should
be judiciously taken according to directions pu
we Dotue.

The Murder of Col. Ellsworth—The
Particula s, by a Special Corres
Particula s, by a Special Corres pondent to the Tribune.
Before our troops disembarked, a boat, filled
with armed marines, and oarrylng a flag of
truoe, pot off from ibe Pawnee, and landed
ahead of at From Ibe officer Id charge we
learned that the Pawnee bad already proposed
terms ol submission to the town, and that the
Rebels bad consented to vacate within a speci
fied time This , seemed to settle the question
of a contest in the negative! bat to the confu
sion of mustering end forming the men, the In
telligence wee not well understood, sod reoelr
ed but little attention. Indeed, I am quite anre
that the Pawobo's officer did not seek Col. Ells-
worth to communloAte with blm, aod that the
Colonel only obtained a meager share oi Infor
mation by seeking it directly from the bearer
of the flig of truce bl nit elf. No doubt this
omission arose from the contused condition in
which affaire then stood. But it would have
caused no differenoe in the Colonel'e military
plans. No attack wae meditated, eicept io eaae
of a forcible retUtance to his progress. . Oo the
other band, the idea of tbe plaee being under a
truce seemed to banish every suipioioo of a re
sistance either from multitudes or individuals.
It wsa lust possibly this consideration that led
Col. Eiliwortb to forego tbe requisite personal
precautions, wnicn, 11 taken, would bave pre
vented his unhappy death. But I am sore none
of us at that time estimated the nrobabllitr of
the danger which alterward menaoed us. Per
haps the thought of actual bloodshed and death
in war wae too foreign to our experiences to be
rightly weighed. But it certainly did not enter
our minds tbeo, as poor Ellsworth's fate has
since taoghtos it should bave done, that a
town halt waked, half terrified, and uoder truoe.
could harbor any peril for ue. So the Colonel
gave some rapid directions for tbe interruption
of the railway course, by displaoiog a few
rails near tbe depot, and then turned to
ward the center of tbe town, to destroy the
means of communication southward by the tele
graph; a measure which he epteared to regard
as very seriously Important. He was accompa
nied by Mr. H. J. Wioser, Military Secretary
to tbe Regiment, the Chaplain, the Rev. E W.
Dodge, end myself. At first be summoned no
guard to follow blm, but he afterward turned
and called forward a single squad, with a Ser
eeant from tbe first company. Wa naaaod
quiciuy tnrougn me streets, meeting a few be-
wuaereo travelers issuing from tbe nrlno oal
hole), which seemed to be slowly coming to its
dally senses, and were about 10 turo toward the
telegraph office, when tbe Colonel, first of all,
caogbt sight of the Seoeesion fUg, which has
so long swung insolently in full v'ew of tbe
rresident'e House. He Immediately sent back
the Sergeant, with an order for tbe advance of
tbe entire nrst company, and, leaving tbe mat
tcr of tbe telegraph office for a while, pushed on
to the hotel, which proved to be tbe Marshall
House, a second-class Inn. On entering the
open door, the Colonel met a man la his shirt
and trowsere, of whom be demanded what sort
of flag it was that bong above the roof,
The etranger, who seemed greatly alarmed,
declared he knew nothing of it, and that he
waaonlya boarder there. Without question
ing mm inrtner tne uoionei eprang up stairs,
and we all followed to tbe topmost story,
whence, by mesne of a ladder, be olambered to
the roof, cut down the flag with Winser's knife,
and brought It from ite staff. There were two
men in bed la the garret, whom we had not ob
served at ail whan wa snteted. their noeUloa
being somewhat eooceaW, bat who now rose In
great apparent amasement, altbongb I observed
mat tnev were more man eair dreesed. Wa at
once turned to descend, Private Brownell lead-
log tbe way, and Uolooel Ellsworth Immedi
ately following blm with tbe Uajr.. As Brownell
reaebed tbe first landing-place, or entry, after a
deecent of aome dosen eleps, a man lamned
from a dark passage, and bardie notldne? tha
private, leveled a double barreled goo square at
tbe Colonel'e breast. Brownell made a quick
pass to turn the weapon aside, bat tbe fellow's
band was Arm, and be discharged one barrel
straight to its aim, the slugs or buckshot with
bich It wae loaded entering; tbe Colonel's
heart, and killing blm at tbe Instant. I think
my arm wae resting on poor Ellsworth's shoul
der at the moment. At any rate, be teemed to
fall almost from my own graep. He was
oa tbe second or third step from tbe
landing, and he dropped forward with
that heavy, horrible, headlong weight which al
ways conies or sudden deato Inflicted In tble
manner. His assailant bad turned like a flash
to
give the ood tents of Ibe other barret to
Brownell. but either he could not command his
aim or tbeZonavowas too quick with him, fur
toe sings went over nis bead, and paiaed tbro'
tbe panele and wainscot of a door wblcb shelt
ered soma sleeplog lodgers. Simultaneously
with tbis seoond shot, and sounding like tbe,
echo of tbe first, Brownell's rifle was heard, and
tbeasaesln Buggered backward He was bit
exaotiy in tne middle of tbe faoe, and the wound,
as I afterward saw It, was tbe most frightful I
ever witnessed. Of course Brownell did not
know how fatal his shot bad been, aod so before
the man dropped, be throat hie saber bavonet
throogh and through the body, the force of tbe
blow tending tho dead tnau violently down tbe
upper aeotion of the - seoond flight
of stairs at the foot of which be lay with his

ed togetner aeiensiveiy. 1 here were but seven
of as altogether, aod one was without a weanon
of any kind. Brownell Instantly reloaded, and
while doiog eo perceived the door thn oeh whloh
the assailant's shot had passed beginning to
open. He brought hit rifle to the ehoulder,
and menaced tbe occupants, two travelers, with
immediate death, if tbey stirred. . Tbe three
other privates guarded the Datsases. of which
there were quite a nnmoer converging to Ibe

had descended, and the adjoining chambers

from tbe story below, but It sool appeared there
wu no dang r from that quarter.- However, wo
we were not at ail disposed to move irom our
position. From the opening doors, and through
the - passages, we discerned a sufficient
number or lorms to assure us that we
were dreadiuiiy in toe minotity. 1 think now
that there-was no danger, and that tbe alnsle
assailant acted without concert with anybody;
botlt ie Impossible to know accurately, aod it
wu certainly a aoaouui question . then. : Tbe
first thing to be done was to look to . our dead
friend aod leader. He bad fallen en his face,
aod the streams of blood that flowed from bis
rnnnd had literally flooded thewav- The Cbao
lain turned him gently over, and I stooped and
called his name aloud, at which I thought then
be murmured Inarticulately. I presume I was
mistaken, and 1 am not sure that be spoke a
word after being etruck, although, in my dis
natoh I repeated a single exclamation which !
had believed he uttered. It might have been
Brownell, or the Chaplain, wbo was close be
hind me. Wlnser and I lifted the body with
all the care we could apply, and laid It upon
a bed la a room near by. The rebel flag, ttalned
with hla blood, and purified by tbie contact from
the basenese oilts former meaning, we laid about
hla feet. ' It waa at Brat dimonli to discover tbe
precise locality of bit woond, for all parts of bis
ooat were equally saturated with blood - By
eactiously loosening his belt aod unbuttoning hie
oust, we lound wbere the shot bed penetrated.

saw that all hope must be resigned Never

ed hat tbey had miatakea a street, and gooe a

bad removed aome of the unsightly stains from
the Colonel's featnree, and com paced his limba.
His expression in death wu beeutualiy neta-

all his frtends had an lately been accustomed to

UiS arrival, not long alter, or course sealed
our own unhappy belief. A eameient guard
was presently distributed over the tbe bouse, but

It looked a little like another chance of a sur

civilian, to start upon tbis mission, but 1 was
tbe only person wbo knew Ihe, whereabouts ol

about tbe matter. When I returned to tbe Ho

It Is not from any wish to fasten obloquy upon
the slayer of Col. Ellsworth, but simply because
It struck me as a frightful f.ot, that I say the
face or tbe dead man wore tne most revolting
expression of rage and hatred that I ever saw.
Perhaps tbe nature of bis wound added to tble
effect, ana toe wonno wss something so sppau.

Tbe saber wound was not lesa effective than
that of tbe ball. Tbe sun which Jackson bad

Curious Effects of Lightning.
Some time ago,a woman,having taken refuge
from a storm under the door of a mill at Lap
pion, (Alsoo.) wu thrown down by a stroke of
lightning, but received no further Injury, except
tan me ngure 01 a tree nara by wae round per
fectly Impreeeed upon her back, eo that the
trunk, branches and leaves were minutely dis
tinguishable, the Impression being of a reddish
tint I Cues of a similar description bave been
several tlmee reoorded. Franklin, for Instsnoe,
relates that while a man wu standing at the
door of bis bouse, a tree opootte blm wu
struck with lightning, and be received tbe 1m
preesloa of that tree on his breast M. Orloll,
who was Profe-sor of Natural Philosophy at
B ilogna, la 1831, at tbe time tbe Lallan Revo
lutloo broke out, la which be took a prominent
part, related a like occurrence at tbe Scientific
Coogrese of Naples, la 1846; a lady of tbe
name of Moroea, at Logano, was sitting ate
window during a storm, when sbe experienced
a ' yiolent : commotion, and soon became
aware that tbe figure of a flower wbloh stood
nesr ber at the time waa Impreeeed on one of
ber legs, a mark which she retalosd to ber dy
ing cay. in September, ltua, a brigenUne
w-ae struck witb lightning, wbile at anchor In
tbe Biy of Armlro, in the Adriatic: one of the
sailors was killed, aod tbe figure of a horse
shoe, which was nailed to tbe foremast, accor
ding to tbe custom of sailors lo those parts, wu
found distinctly delineated 00 hie hip. A simi
lar case Is recorded of another brleantlne at
Emte, wbere a sailor was also killed, and was
lound marked witb tbe number 44. the rerv
eame 10 site as that cut outio metal, which wae
nailed to some cart of the vessel. Oa tbe 9th
of October, 1836, a young man, named Politi,
wat killed by lightning at Ziote. Upon exam
ination, the exact impressions ot six pieces of
goia, wnicn ne nso n bis belt, were touod on
bis shoulder. Io 1841, in the department of la -dre
el Loire, two oersons placed themeelvet co
der a poplar during a etorra. . The tree was
struck, and both Individuals were marked with
the Impression of a leaf of the poplar. M.
Figuter, who enumeratee these eases in sa ar
ticle of his in tbe Preete, endeavors to explain
tha phenomenon by toppotlng that tbe electric
fluid, lu striking a body, carries off with it some
particles of the same, which, in their progress,
retain the same outline, and being in a state of
ignition, impress it on any other combustible
body tbey may meet on their way. It is
soaroely safe to reject an explanation without
offering a better one; still, we might ssk bow
the womsn of Lapplon received the tmpreeiion
on ber back through her clothes, which are not
stated to bave been burnt through; and bow tho
pieces of money contained in a belt worn at the
time could be Impressed on the shoulder of the
wearer. - We are evidently, ad yet, in want of
ruffioient Information regarding thie curious
phenomenon, which appears to us well worthy
of being further inquired Into.

A Good Story.
Editors, like othsr shrewd men, must live
with their eyes and ears opsn. A good story Is
told of one who started a paper in a Western
towa. Tha town was infested by gamblers,
whose preeenee wu a eoarce of annoyance to
the cltiieus, wbo told the editor if be did not
come out against them, tbey would not patron
ise hie paper He replied that he would give
them a "smasher" next day. Sore enough, his
next Issue contained the promised "smasher,"
and on tbe following morning tbe redoubtable
editor, with aclssors lo hand, wu seated In his
saootum, cutting out news, when la walked a
large man with a club ia hla haod, and demand- .
ed to know if the editor wae in.
"No, air," was the reply, "he has ateooed out.
Take a eeat and read tbe papers; he will return
in a minute -
Down eat the indignant man of eardt. crossed
hit legs, witb bis elub between tbem, and com
menced reading a paper. In tbe meantime the
editor quietly vamoosed down stairs, and at lbs
landing below he met another exalted man with
a cudgel la hie band, who atked him if the edit- .
or was In.
"Yet, sir," wss the prompt response, "you
wilt flod him seated up stairs reading a newe-
paper."
To
oe latter, on entering the room, with a fu
rious oath commenced a violent assault upon
the former, which waa resisted with equal feroo
ity. Tbe fight was oootloued till they bad both
rolled to tbe foot of the stairs, and bad pounded
each oiber to their beart'e content.
The Kaleidoscope.
When an object Is placed between two Dirallel
plane mirrors, each produces an Image of its
own, ana reproduces tne image reflected lo it
from tbe other. Tbie image of ao Image is
again reflected by each to the other, and thus a
ssries of images is produced, till the raye be
come so faint by successive reflections! ae to be
bo longer diioernlble. When the mirrors are
placed at right angles to eaoh otber, an obect
