peculiar And important relations which
they sustain, their peculiar organization
and th offices they perform, are subject
to many sufferings. Freedom from these
contribute in no small degree to their

can long be suffered to run on without
involving the , general .health of the in

Hundreds suffer on , in silence, and
hundreds of others apply vainly to drug'
gists and doctors, who either merely tan-
tatalize them with the hope of a cure or
apply remedies which make them worse.
I would not wish to assert anything that
would do Injustice to the afflicted, but I

of the powers of life, by laborious em

profuse menstruation, the use of tea and
coffee, and frequent childbirth, it is far

When reviewing .the causes of these
distressing complaints; it is most painful
to contemplate the '.attendant evils con
sequent , upon them. ...It is but simpl
justice to the subject to enumerate a few
of ' the many additional causes which' so
largely affect the life, health and happi
ness of, woman, in all .classes of society,
and which, consequently, atiect more or
less directly, the welfare of the entire
human family. The-Tnania that exists

for precocious education . and marriage,
causes the years that nature - designed
for corporeal development to be wasted
and perverted in the restraints of dress,
the early confinement of school, and es
pecially in the unhealthy excitement of
the,; ball-room. Thus, -.with the . body
half-clothed, and . the -jnind unduly ex
cited 'by' pleasure, ' perverting in mid
night revel the hours designed by nature
for sleep and rest, the work of destruc
tion is half accomplished.
' In consequence of this early strain
upon her' system, unnecessary effort is

called the tissue, which, is, in," common
with the female breast and lips, evident

and associations at "an 'early period of
life ; and, as we shall subsequently see,
these' emotions, when ' excessive, lead,

THE PUBLIC DEBT.
Increase of $160,000,000 in Three
Years—An Average Increase of
Nearly $8,000,000 for the Past
Four Months—Debt Bearing Interest
in Coin Doubled, and the
Interest $46,000,000 Since the
Close of the War—Diplomatic
Stains of the Spanish Minister.
[Special dispatch to the Cincinnati Enquirer.]
WASHINGTON, October 5, 1868.
ENORMOUS INCREASE OF THE PUBLIC DEBT
The' Intelligeniner prints an article this
morning on our finances,, by Robert J.
Walker, compiled trom tbe books of the
Department, with' the approbation' of
becretary ' McUulloch. ; lt is 'authentic
and accurate, as it contains no conjec
ture or estimates, but only recorded
tacts. Referring to it, the editor says i
From this table it appears that our debt
on the 31st of August was. greater by
over $160,000,000-than on the first of
April, 1865, the.' subsequent rate of in
crease exceeding "34,000,000 a month, or
nearly . S50.000.000 a year. .
The debt is greater by over thirty-five
million dollars than it was on the 1st of
May last,' 1 being thirty-five - million
eighty-five thousand four hundred and
eighty-six dollaii. On this basis the
yearly rate of increase of debt would
be over one hundred" and fifty . millions
of dollars. If to this annual rate of in
crease we add interest at the rate of six
per cent, a year, compounded annually
for twenty years, the - debt,, instead of
being paid, would be more than double,
and would largely exceed five thousand
millions of dollars.
The monthly increase of the debt for
four months past was at the rate of eight
million seven hundred thousand dollars
per month, and in August was npward
or . twelve millions. This increase,' . it
should be noted,, is ' during the great
quarter when the average rate of rev
enue from imports exceeded abottt one
third the rate for the fiscal year. ''
But this table exhibits a still more
alarming fact, that while the debt - bear
ing interest in currency had decreased
on the 31st of August last $629,940,728
from the 31st of March," 1865, the debt
bear inor interest in coin had nearly
doubled, having increased on the '31st
of -August last 6996,139,508 since the
3lBt of March, 1865. Thus, on the 30th
of April,' 1865, the annual interest pay
able in coin was only $63,978,414, while
ou the 31st of August last this annual
coin interest had reached $123,573,831 :
the increase of annual coin interest being
Now, the total annual interest on coin
and currency, as shown . by the table,
was $102,836,531 on the 31st of
March. 1865, and $127,948,611 on the
31st of August last, showing an increase
in the annual interest payable .in coin
and currency on the 31st of August last
; Bnt this, as is shown by the table, is
not the only real increase. Thus we
have seen that while on the 31st day of
April, 1865, the annual currency , inter
est was $45,127,936, it had fallen on the
3 1st of August last to $4,374,990, while
the annual coin interest bad increased
nearly $60,000,000. The account would
then stand thus : On the 30th of April,
I860, com . interest converted into cur
rency, $93,418,481 ; currency interest at
that day, $4,127,936; total annual in
terest in currency, $138,726,417. On
the 31st of August, 1868, coin interest
converted into currency, $180,417,936;
actual currency interest, $4,374,990.
Currency interest, 31st of August, 1868,
$184,792,976. Currency interest after
the close of the war, 31st of April, 1865,
$13S,736,417. Increased interest 31st
of Aueust, 18JS, $46,058,559.
Thus we see that since the close of the
war the annual interest of the public
debt has increased upward of torty-six
million .dollars. This iucreased annual
interest . would represent a principal
sum exceeding seven hundred and fifty
million dollars, t,- ;.. - , . . .

The Treatment of Union Prisoners
--Letter from M. Jeff. Thompson.
- We have been requested to publish
the following correspondence as an act
of justice to the parties referred to :
BOSTON, Sept. 14, 1868.
" '"Dear Sir: It is reported in the
Northern papers that you bave stated
that you were informed by Mr. Jefferson
Davis, during tbe war, tnat be favored
the treatment of Northern prisoners at
Andersonville, because in that way more
could be destroyed than in battle. For
the sake of truth, will you confirm or
deny this report, with permission to
publish, if the latter is consistent with
your wishes. -
" Respectfully and truly yours,
"M.Jeff.Thompson, Esq., New Orleans."
NEW ORLEANS, LA.,
SUNDAY, September 20, 1868.
Dear Sir : -1 have this moment re
ceived your note of the 14th inst., and
hasten to answer it. I received a letter
four days ago from a friend in Philadel
phia, containing tne remams ot a Mr.
Meyers, in which he stated that I had
charged Mr. Davis with using the ex
pressions you quote. I instantly an
swered this letter, denying positively
ever having said any thing of the kind ;
but not thinking that this charge would
be repeated or published, I did not in
struct my friend to publish my contra
diction of the Statement. I J will now
write to him to have my letter published
but for fear he may not do so, I will
give you tbe substance of the letter, that,
should he not publish it, not only to
place me right, but to defend from such
imputations such a high-toned, Christian
gentleman as Mr. Davis.
The newspaper extract reads that I
said to Mr. Davis: "For God's sake, let
these Union prisoners be better treated,"
aud Mr. Davis replied, "We can kill
them that way better than in battle." I
do not deny having taken an active in
terest in the treatment and exchange of
prisoners, after my exchange, and that I
had a conversation with Mr." Davis on
the subject, but with him I spoke prin
cipally of the Confederates in the North
ern prisons, delivering messages from
his personal acquaintances, and such
other information as was interesting; but
with Judge Ould and Colonel . Hatch,
and various other officers, -1 conversed
freely on' the subject of the hardships
and sufferings of the Union prisoners,
and all agreed that it was a terrible ne
cessity, for we could ot feed them bet
ter," aud the Federal authorities would
- - - - - - - - n
not exchange or even receive them on
any terms. This was in August,
1864, just beftira tho evacuation 'of 'At
lanta the official correspondence at this
date should be evidence and without
troops ,o guard them in smaller num
bers,' and not enough provisions to feed
them anywhere, the sufferings were in
tense, aud about this. time a committee
of Federals were selected by the prison
ers and permitted to visit Washington
to entreat an exchange. -
. I proposed to visit Andersonville to
see if I could suggest anything, but I
was - persuaded not to go by some
friends, because it could only distress
me, as it bad them, and there was no
possible way to relieve them, except for
the federals to take them home.
As my letter to my friend in Phila
delphia is probably too long, and gos
sipping to answer the purpose' of stop-
' ping this slander . at once, I will lfere
authorize you to publish that I assert
. that Mr. Davis never used any such lan
guage to me, in letter or. in spirit, and
that I certainly never said that he did.
I further state that I never heard any
' officer of the Confederate States speak
on the subject, except to deplore the ter
rible necessity, and that it was the uni
versal desire to bring home the thou
sands of our men in the Northern pris
ons, both from private' and' public con
siderations. That we had some malicious
and even brutal men the South, I do not
deny and possibly expressions of the
kind quoted, may have been used by
some such, but most assuredly they were
not used by Mr. Davis, for he is a chiv
alrous, Christian gentleman, and has
proved it more by his dignified manli
ness, bi nee the war, than even in the
most prosperous or the darkest days of
the Confederacy. ,
Hoping this statement will set history
right, as far as my name has been used,
I am yours, ' " ?

An Exciting Railroad Adventure
An Exciting Railroad Adventure--A Drunken Man Runs off with
[From the Troy (N. Y.) Times, Sept. 23,]
We learn from an engineer ' on the
Hudson River Railroad,, the particulars
of one of the most exciting scenes prob
ably that ever occurred on the line of
that road.- On Saturday last-the loco
motive Arctic was standing " on the
track at Foughkeepsie, awaiting tbe ar
rival of the 9:45 A. M. -train from this
city,' which it was to conduct to . New
;York. .The fireman of the engine was a
recent employe of the road; and jumping
off the locomotive repaired to a neigh
boring saloon," where he became not
drunk, but. utterly wild and ungoverna
ble with liquor. ... i-be time for the ar
rival : of - the v train : was fast ap
proaching, ' and ' the engineer " becom
ing" alarmed' -at the absence of ' his
fireman, got off the engine to look for
bim. During his absence, the fireman
returned, and influenced by the devil,
mounted the engine,' and with one des
perate clutch opened lhe throttle, which
was to set the ponderous machinery in
'motion'.' - "Away the Arctic sped with the
speed of the whirlwind. For a few min
utes all was consternation and excite
ment among the lookers-on. In a mo
ment the engine with its maniac driver
was out of sight, bounding along over
the track at a rate utterly tearful to con
template, and suggesting most terrible
disasters to such unlucky trains as might
-be preceding it on the track. ., What to
do how to stop the mad career of the
engine were the questions which pre
sented themselves tor solution to tbe
miuds of the railroad officials at Pough
keepsie. There was but one recourse, and
that was to telegraph to the station mas
ter at New liambnrg to throw -open
the switch at that point and run the fly
ing locomotive off the track. ' But be
fore the agent at that place could exe
cute the order, the Arctic came tearing
along at its greatest speed, passed the
station in safety, and was flying on its
course like a demon ot destruction. Or
ders were sent ahead for the track to be
torn' up, as it was "determined that, if
possible, no one should be harmed by the
freaks ot the mad man but himselt, net
ther his life nor the value of theengine be
ing considered of the least account when
the lives of so many others were de
pending on the result- Fortunately the
engine was stopped by causes within it
self rather than by any ot the measures
suggested for its overthrow and destruc
tion. The engineer at Poughkeepsie,
when ne left the engine to look for his
absent fireman, had both pumps at work
filling the boiler with water. The fire
man either did not know how to shut
off the flow of cold water, or had over
looked' in his frenzy and ' excitement
the fact that the pumps were at work.
and neglected to shut them off, and after
running about a dozen miles, the pres
sure of water upon the boiler was so
great as to cause an overflow, the fires
went down, steam was exhausted, and
the engine stopped from the want of the
necessary driving power. The fireman
then took tbe cushions from the engin
eer's seat, laid them down in the gutter
alongside the track, and coolly deposited
himself upon them for a. comfortable
snooze, unmindful of the terrible excite
ment and apprehensions of disasters he
had caused along the line of the road.
The engine was subsequently brought
back to Poughkeepsie, none the worse
tor its mad journey, and the faithless
fireman was discharged from the employ
of the company.
