FOR THE CURE OF
Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
DvsnrstA aim au KBAoacaa
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in the right side, under the
edge of the ribs, increases on pres
sure; sometimes the pain is in the lett
side; the patient is rarel able to lie
on the left side ; sometimes the pain is
folt under the shoulder blade, and it
frequently extends to the top of the
i J r - ,
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken
for rheumatism in the arm. The
stomach is affected with loss of appe
tite and sickness; the bowels in gen
eral are costive, sometimes alternative
with lax; the head is troubled with
pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy
sensation in the back part There is
generally a considerable loss of mem
ory, accompanied with a painful sen
sation of having left undone some
thing which ought to have been done.
A slight, dry cough is sometimes an
attendant The patient complains of
weariness and debility ; he is easily
startled, his feet are cold or burning,
and he complains of a prickly sensa
tion of the skis ; his spirits are low;
and although he is satisfied that exer
cise would, be beneficial to him, yet
he can scarcely summon up fortitude
enough to try it In fact, he distrusts
every remedy. Several of the above
symptoms attend the disease, but cases
have occurred where few of them ex
isted, yet examination of the body,
after death, has shown the liver to
have been extensively deranged.
AGUE AND FEVER.
Dr. C McLane's Liver Pills, in
CASES OF AGUE AND J" EVER, When
taken with Quinine,' are productive of
the most happy results. No better
cathartic can be used, preparatory to,
or after taking Quinine." We would
advise all who are afflicted with this
disease to give them a Fair trial.
t or all bilious derangements, and a.
a simple purgative, they are unequaled.

The Snow Drop.
IN THE POOR MAN'S WINDOW.
It was a darksome alley.
Where light but seldom shone.
Save when at noon a son-ray touched
Tbe little sffl of stone
, Beneath the poor man's window.
Whose weary life was bound.
To waste at one doO, ceaseless task
The passing seasons round.
6prlngs dewy breath of perfume.
And summer's wealth of flowers.
Or tlie changing hoe of autumn's leaf,
Ne'er blest his lonely hours :
He knew too well when winter
Come howling forth again
He knew it by his artless grate,
Tbe snow and plashing rain.
Pierced by the frost-winds bead.
His cheerless task be plied ;
Want chained him ever to tbe loans.
By the UtUe window's side ;
But when the days grew iongar.
He stole one happy hour
To tend, with a broken vase,
A pale and slender flower.
How tenderly he moved It
To catch the passing ray.
And smiled to see Its folded leaves
Grow greener every day ;
His laded eyes were mted oft.
To watch the snow-drop bloom
To him It seemed a star of right,
Wllhln that darksome room.
And as he gently moved it
Near the sun-tooched pane,
Oh ! who ran tell what memortss
Were busy In his brain t
Perchance his home in childhood.
In a sytvaa valley lay
And be heard the voice of the running sLreams,
And the green leaves' rustling play.
Perchance a long departed
Bat cherished dreams of yore.
Rose through the mist of want and toll.
To bless his heart once more.
A voice of muste whispered
Sweet words Into his ear.
And be Ilred sgsin that moonlight eB,
Gone by for many years.
Or but the lore of Nature
Within his bosom stirred
The same sweet can that answered by
The blossom and the bird j
The free, unfettered worship
Paid by the yearning soul.
When it seems to feel its wings I
To reach a brighter goal
An asplratloB, showing
Earth binds us not ber slave.
But we crave a brighter bring
A Ufa beyond the grave.
IN THE POOR MAN'S WINDOW. Select Story.
MY EXPERIENCE AS A LUNATIC.
The Confederate iorce of Gen'l Early
bad gained the mastery in the Shenan
doah Valley, and our demoralized bat
talions were falling back precipitately
Sheridan dashed upon the scene, and
bia presence, like a spell, checked the re
treat and infused new courage into the
disordered mass. Our battery reached a
knoll to the left of the pike, and unlim
be red in front of a timbered slope , on
(he brow of which the Confederates had
posted a heavy battery. Tbe infantry
line on our front was advancing splen
didly, and I saw the gleaming crest of
bayonets fall when the order came for a
charge on the double quick.
Bright sunshine was streaming
ihmiio'h ihn nrum nnrtain. and seemed to
have awakened me from prolonged slum I
ber. Slowly my scattered senses gathered
from dim unconsciousness, and as
bought assumed definite form the scene
of the battle field again flashed before
What of the charge?'' I inquired, anx
ously, making a desperate effort to rise
The sharp unnatural tone of my own
voice startled me and my strength was
unequal to rustle even the covering of
"Do not try to talk now. Charley, you
will be stronger very soon.' It was the
voice of my wife. In a moment I real-
zed that 1 was at home, on the shores of
he northern lake. I glanced through
the' window, and the waving branches
associated with my thoughts of the bat
tle scene were not there, but the snow
lay heavily on the fields glistening in the
sunshine. Many months have passed
away, a blank period in my existence.
As I recovered my strength and com
prehension I learned tbe critical ordeal
I had passed in surviving a severe wound
hat caused a fracture of the skull, and
necessitated the operation of trepanning.
Still many more months elapsed before
I was again abroad. The war was end
ed, and the people were rejoicing in the
restoration of peace. I was tendered
and accepted the old position I had re
signed in reeponee to the call of arms
teacher of mathematics in the academy
of my native town.
The routine of the position was famil
iar enough, but close attention to its
duties shortly developed the fact that
my nervous system had not recovered
from the severe shock it had sustained,
and my mental powers were impaired.
As nearly as I could define the effect
produced, the injury teemed to have in
terrupted the harmonious action of the
brain, and the right and left lobes ap
peared to operate independently, and
take separate and distinct cognizance of
emotions and sensations conveyed by the
medium of the senses. Every thought
seemed to have its duplicate, necessary
to a complete impression. When I
studied a single problem, and the solu
tion occurred, immediately would follow
the solution again, aa if emanating from
a second mind acting in con j unction And
always a litle slower in its perceptions.
This derangement, vexatious and con
fusing at first, con tinned to increase as I
devoted myself to mental labor, until
finally I was compelled to abandon my
position in the academy.
The necessity was indeed a hardship,
as it left me without the means of suste
QAnce.' My brave and devoted wife bore
op nobly under the affliction And insisted
that I should indulge the repose that my
critical position demanded. Meantime
she turned the fine musical faculties ae
quired in better days to good account,
and we continued to live comfortably for
a time on the proceeds of her labor.
Comfortably, did 1 say? No, it grieved
me constantly to see ber toil so arduous
iy.with the double reeponsbifiiy of house
hold cares. And I knew that her as
sumed cheerfulness was the ; cover ; of
painful solicitude she' experienced on
This anxietyrdid not favorably affect
my derangement It grew more marked
and depressing. Vague fears haunted
me by day, and harrowed the long
sleepless hours of night The strange
perception of s double intellect became
so far defined that tne senses were tm
pathetic , The sounds that reached my
ear were repeated- as if by echo; taste
and touch were fanciful and erratic, and
at night weird, fantastic forms flitted be-
) . -A-
i fore mr eves, and real objects assumed
the semblance of what they were not,
and drove me to tbe verge of delirium;
while the effort constan'ly exerted to
retain my reason only the mote pros
trated the mental powers.
Ultimately my malady reached a stage
U which I seemed to realize both phys
ical and mental double: existence. At
dmes I could distinctly see the form and
features of my second self, directly con
fronting and gazing upon my more im
mediate self. And then my own voice
addressed me, and we conversed together
myself and my second self now con-
dolinz in common misery, and then in
tantalizing and horrible imprecations.
The terrible delusion became unbear
able and I felt that reason could not
much longer retain command of the dia
ordered faculties. It was a night when
my mental agitation had reached a high
degree. My wife had fallen asleep,
overcome with constant care and watch
ing. I was pacing the sitting room of
our chamber about the hour of midnight
as was my habit Occasionally I reclined
on a sofajn the hope of catching a slight
respite from the distress of my terrible
hallucination: but it was for a moment
1 lay down again on the sofa. My
brain seemed whirling in a blaze of fire,
and I sprang up stricken with madness.
The horrible spectre stood before me and
mocked me with a fiendish grin of de
rision. I grasped a heavy piece of fur
niture and dashed at it with the fury of
a maniac. J. he spectre seemed paipaDie
to the blow, and yielded. I saw it vanish
in darkness that spread before me, and
my tormenting second self was gone. I
broke forth in frantic laughter, that re
turned in a hundred echoes around me,
and I sank exhausted, unconscious to
The morning sun was shining in upon
me when I awoke to returning consci
ousness, A cool perspiration oozed from
my forehead. I rose on my elbow, and,
for some moments, endeavored to recall
my identity and the recollections of the
night Then a horrible conviction came
upon me. Great heavens! It was she!
It was my poor devoted wife the reality
of the form I bad dashed down and des
troyed in my firen zy!
Overwhelmed with remorse, I rushed
wildly from the house and fll I knew
not whither. The greater grief that had
come upon me reanimated my mental
power And I became calm in despair; but
shrank cowardly from the desolation
that my own hand had wrought
It was some weeks after the dreadful
night I have described that I reached
New York City without detection, a
greater portion ot the distance working
as one of the crew of a canal boat I
wandered along the wharves of the me
tropolia, searching anxiously lor some
means of escaping the country and long
ing even to flee the fellowship of civilized
The opportunity was finally dis
covered in a ship about sailing around
Cape Horn for the Pacific coast.on bwrd
of which my services were accepted in
a menial capacity.
I was soon safe from discovery and
pursuit, and free upon the boundless
waters free as one could feel with the
remorse of a hellish deed upon his soul,
and the abandonment of all hope of a
happy hour in life again.
I need not describe the experience of
a long and tedious sea voyage, and the
hardships and indignities put upon me
in consequence of inefficiency and total
ignorance of a seaman's duties. " To me
it was of little account But the change
of life and scene, and the sea air had a
wonderfid effect in repairing my mental
and physical strength. -' It was on a
bright September morning that I first
spied the hazy shores of California, and
in a day or two thereafter sauntered
along the streets of San Francisco, alone
in a new world, with only the compan
ionship of bitter recollections.
: As necessity required I sought em
ployment, and managed to sustain my
self, leading a listless, purposeless life.
But tbe monotony soon became oppres
sive, and the apprehension of ultimate
discovery excited renewed anxiety.
Frequently I fancied the recognition of
a familiar countenance on the streets,
that kept me in painful uncertainty.
The day came in which my worst
fears were realized. The miserable
wretch in whose nouae I was sojourning
delivered me into the hands of justice,
Bf what means he discovered my ident
ity I could not determine; but I met my
fate boldly; for remorse had so far em
bittered my existence that I disdained
longer to struggle for its continuance.
"Gentlemen," I exclaimed, as the
officers inclosed my wrists with iron
shackles, "take your accursed reward,
I am Charles Harden, the murderer!
They dragged me to the prison, and
the officers of the law came and ques
tioned me. I told them all, and they
transferred me to a more secure con
finement, least I should escape again
the retribution of crime.
Long I lingered in the solitude of a
gloomy cell, awaiting the final decree of
fate, until calm indifference succeeded
despair, and gradually every emotion,
even life itself, seemed to subside into a
But a day came when my sensibilities
seemed reanimating, like one emerging
from a trance. Slowly my mind mani
fested activity, and in time I recalled
my identity; then suddenly the recollec
tion of my whole life flooded back: npon
me, and all the weight of its great bur
den of remore again descended.
An old man, whose kindly ooonten
aoee bad beoome familiar to me as in a
vision, appeared and sought to rally
my despondency with words of hope
Ton have had a long, bad spell,
Harden," he remarked; "bat yoa are
eominr aroond all right now, aad win
soon be oat in the world again."
Then I was not In a prison, bat
insane asyiam. inank Heaven my
wretched guilt had not been discovered.
And then I learned from the old
man tbe cireumatanees of my surest as
a lonatia, and the nature of my affile
tion. In the operation of trepanning
at tbe bands oi unskilled surgeons,
sroail splinter of the fractured skull
had been left adhering in a position to
Irritate the membrane of the brain. and
this trifling oversight had caused the
Insanity attended with men sad results
to blast tbe happiness of my life for
ever, and stamp my memory with the
lgnrsmioy of murder.
The derangement had been
ively repaired by tbe skilled surgeon
the asylaui, and my mind now rapid,
recovered its original powr. Ba
what availed it, I reflected bitterly;
ard why had I been'reatored from
peaeef al lunacy to a oonscioosnesa to
which death would be s relief.
Oae morning tbe old attendant of
whom I have spoken interrupted my
gloomy meditations with a countenance
more than usually cheerful, that seem
ed to radia'e the light of some hidden
"Harden," he remarked, "you are
growing vigorous again io both body
and mind. I have a message for yoa
that may excite yoa a little. Do yoa
think yon ean stand an agreeable sur
"Anything agreeable to bear would
Indeed be a surprise, I replied. "Bat,
my dear Iriend, 1 fear tbe world could
now hardly afford a message to me snf

OUR EUROPEAN LETTER
[From our Regular Correspondent.]
November, 23, '78.
The Session of the Prussian Diet was
opened on Tuesday. The speech from
the Throne commenced by alluding to
the painful events of the summer.which,
nevertheless, had given occasion for the
display of the patriotic feeling of the
people. The Emperor hoped that the
deplorable aberration of Socialism would
be vanquished by the confident co op-
eration of the powers upholding the
State. The chief task before the Diet
was the solution of the financial diffi
cultiesAnd until a remedy was provided
by tbe measures of fresh taxation refer
red to the Empire the necessary resour
ces would have to be furnished by a loan.
The Speech proceeded to announce the
presentation of various measures of in
ternal interest, comprising bills for
modify ing the jurisdiction of the Minis
terial Departments, for the imposition of
communal taxes, for giving execution to
the Imperial judicial laws, and for the
establishment of agricultural banks,
chiefly for mortgage purposes. Bills
were also announced for transferring to
thfi regular Courts the special jurisdic
tion which Universities have hitherto
posessed, and for forming Improvement
Associations, the cbief object of which is
to improve the means of communication
in rural districts, more particularly by
the construction of roads. If the pre
parations for the purchase by the State
of important railways now worked by
private enterprise and for the construe
tion of urgently needed lines could be
concluded in time, a bill would be in
troduced for regulating the railway
system and extending the railway net
work of lines. The first sitting of the
Lower House of the Diet was opened
with an address from the President
Connecting his remarks with the attempt
made on Sunday upon the life of the
Sovereign of a friendly nation, he re
minded the members present of the day
of terror when the dear life of Emperor-
King was imperilled. These days, he
said, are days of serious warning to the
representatives of the Prussian people to
gather with . renewed energy, fidelity,
and devotion round the King and his
dynasty, and round the monarchy, as the
firm foundation of the commonwealth
and the existing system of laws. The
President concluded with a call for three
cheers for tbe Emperor-King.wbich was
responded to with much enthusiasm j
Eleven Government Bills were then laid
on the table, and the members drew by
to form tbe usual sections. The Upper
House was opened by Duke Ratiborj
with a similarly patriotic speech and
three cheers for the Emperor King.
The epidemic of regicide which broke
out a few months ago in the half witted
fury of the wretched fanatic Hodel has
not yet died out Fortunately, the hand
of the assassin has again foiled him. It
was ocly a few weeks ago that the King
of Spain narrowly escaped from an am
buscade of the same kind at Madrid.
Both these crimes have probably been
inspired by the two recent deliberate
attempts upon the life of the German
Emperor. The ancient capital of the
Kingdom of the Two Sicilies teems with
men who bold human Iifs cheap, and
who would be restrained by no super
stitious reverence from shedding the
blood of a Kins. It is one of the blots
upon the fame of regenerate Italy that
assassination is still common, and there
it goes every day unpunished. Nowhere
in Italy is there less detestation for the
crime of murder than in Naples, and
nowhere is there more passionate na
tures upon which fanaticism or malig
nity can work with murderous intent
In the native land of Camorrarganized
assassination is familiar to the popular
mind. If the Neapolitan assassins dag
ger had struck King Humbert down, the
Monarchy in Italy, which is still a young
and tender plant would have been ex
posed to all the risks of a regency. The
heir to the Throne, the youthful
Prince of Naples, is just nine years
of age, and a long minority, even with as
popular a Queen-Mother as Queen
Marguerite, would have given the fac
tions many an opportunity of threaten
ing tbe Constitutional settlement of the
kingdom. It ia possible that the attack
on King Humbert may strengthen his
hold upon the Italians, who will admire
the hereditary courage with which be
confronted the amamina, and who may be
reminded by their sovereign's peril of
the difficulties and distractions into
which the country would be plunged
were the throne upset either by Repub
lican or clerical ccMpirators. Italy has
been most fortunate in securing already,
at tbe close of her revolutionary period,
many of the advantages of the stabL'ity
wbiehConstitational Monarch yprom isee
It woold be a crime against the national
interests as well as against tbe moral
law to strike at these advantages for the
profitfof a disappointed party. There is
in every modern society a type of feeble
minded fanaticism which is easily infect
ed with a longing to imitate every novel
and famous crime. Murders and suicides
follow the same course for a while, when
once tbe fashion is set by a criminal
with, a little originality. So it is with
regicide. The fanatics who dream that
it is their glorious mission or their fatal
destiny to rid tbe world of this monarch
or that are, for the most part, men of no
force of character. If they were, they
would be more formidable as disturbers
of kingdoms. But, being weaklings, they
do not take their lives in their bands and
pursue only their terrible purpose.!
They falter and look behind them for
their way of escape, and almost invaria
bly they faiL Nobiiing went nearer to
the execution of bis designs than any
regicide conspirator of our day. As for

The Russian authorities tolerate no bap
tism according to the rites of the church
of Rome. The Roman Catholic popula
tion are therefore wont to carry their 1
new born children across the border, In
order to have them baptised by Roman
Catholic priests at Cracow. The Russian
Governor-General having been informed
of this, recently caused the parties cross
ing the frontier to be intercepted and
seized by gens d'armes, who took tne
children to the nearest orthodox church,
and had them baptised perforce by the
Russian pope, Tbe parents it is added,
wishing to invalidate tho Russian bap

I From our Special CorrespondenLl
Washesstoit, D. C, Dec. 9, 1878.
Nothing very startling marked occur
rences at the Capitol the first week of
the session. Wood, Chairman of Ways
and Means Committee in the House and
hence recognized as leader of the Demo
cratic majority, boiled over tbe first day.
He made a bad mess of it as ne did at a
similar stage of proceedings three years
ago. On that occasion Mr Blaine
promptly took him in hand at the close
of his diatribe, and he was so severely
disabled that his convalesence was re
tarded beyond the close of the session.
The servility of this Representative of
the five Points Democracy to his old
tasks masters of the South was notorious
even among the old Cne 'dough faces
sent here by Northern Democracy prior
to' the war. Lapse of years seems to
have made him more than ever obsequi
ous and ready to bow to the arrogant
demands of his bulldoze associates. He
sought to utilize bis appointment by
Randall to tbe head of the Committee
named, to build up his reputation as a
reformer; but the contemptuous manner
of his fellows in kicking his bill for a
revision of the tariff out of the House
last session, after he had spent months
in maturing it, deeply wounded his van
ity. It was pointedly uncomplimentary
to bis Statesmanship and was regarded
as a left-handed protest against his as
sumptions as leader. He appeared to
think the President's mild allusion to the
Southern situation as a providential op
portonity to retrieve his character and
regain hia influence. Accordingly the
reading of ihe message had hardly
ceased when he secured the floor and
proceeded to deny the truth of every
intimation of Southern outrages con
tained in it, and asserted his knowledge
of Republican intimidation of voters in
tne North. It was an open bid for tbe
favor of the South and was so repulsive
ly servile in its promises of instant and
unquestioning obedience to tbe behests
of the Confederate Brigadiers as to make
the position of those for whom he spoke
appear only less pitiable than that of the
2reedman under Democratic "home
rule," But he succeeded in committing
his party associates of tbe House notor
ious zealots as they have been for Inves
tigation to tbe policy of opposing any
inquiry into the abhorent crimes South
em Democracy is alleged to have resort
ed to in the last campaign to make the
late Confederacy redundantly solid.
Republicans saw the blunder "Mr Wad"
had made and spiked Democracy to the
record, though its clearer headed mem
bers struggled to escape from the dam
aging position in which their, leader left
left them.-. They labored four days to
that end unsuccessfully, then adjourned
over until to-day in order to reform
their lines, bring up the demoralized
stragglers and agree on a programme
for f the future. Republicans of both
Houses appear substantially agreed on
the plan reached by Messrs Blaine,
Edmunds, DawesJIowe and Chris tiancy,
designated as a Committee for that pur
pose at a Senate caucus. It is bold and
aggressive. Edmunds was entrusted
with the details; and TCsoIntions, pre
ceded by a preamble reciting the sub
stance of the 13th, 14th and 15th amend
ments, will be early onered, proposing
a decrease in the ratio of representation
of certain Southern States in Congress
and the Electoral College, in propor
tion to tne number of citizens they have
disfranchised by legislative enactments
and violence. Mr Blaine's resolutions
which proposed a searching inquiry into
the alleged campaign lawlessness and
crimes in .the Sonth will also come op
and the fighting forced. As they are in
the line bf the recommendations of the
Presidents message, no difference be
tween the Executive aod Republican
Congressmen ean result from their in
troduction. - - "
