FREMONT, OHIO. I. W. BOOTH Editor.
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1853.
Having been disappointed in getting the
right sixed paper, will account for the lean ap
pearance of our paper this week. We prom,
ise something belter for Vett veek.-
"A Blunt Falsehood!!"
The editors of the Commercial Register, of
Sandusky City, say
The following paragraph from the Ameri
can Railroad Journal, referring to the Tole
do, Norwslk and Cleveland Railroad, we have
noticed in the Cleveland nnd Toledo paper.
As the second son tenon which we hnve italic
ised) contains a blunt falsehood, which must
have been the result either of inexcusable ig
norance or something worse, 'on the port of
the editors of the Journal, we insert the pnr
agraph entile, in order that those interested in
the Junction railway may know how the pros
pects of their road are misrepresented. The
This eompany (the T. N. fe C. Co.,) are
now in n fair way of being speedily repaid
for the extraordinary energy and ability they
have displayed in the pioaecution of the road.
It it, and mvatj'or tome yeart continue to be
the only line or' road connectinq Southern
Michiyam, and Northern Indiana and Illi
nois, oud the far West with the East. Over
it roust pass all the travel and business of
1,500,000 people, till other avenues shall be
opened, which cannot be done for some time
to come. These facts muit secure to this road
an enormous through business, independent of
its local tramc, which must place its stock 111
a very short lime alongside of the highest
priced stocks in the West. The company
have issued no convertibles which is an impor
tant fact in relation to the value of its stock.
This now cannot be had at par, and we be
lieve that when a few months' operation shall
be made public, it will lake position with the
stocks of the Cleveland and Columbus, and
Michigan Southern roads.
What sticklers some people are about truth'
How careful they are never to misrepresent,
even in the most inconsiderable matters.
What wide extremes iu the susceptibilities of
mens' consciences. Some men have such dull
perceptions of wright and wrong, or their con.
sciences are so pliable, that they cn tell such
"blunt falsehoods," as give good men the heart
ache. Then, again, some have consciences so
t'ry tender, that they could not be induced to
tell even a "white lie," for nil the "yellow
motai"of Ca'al'ornia. But the editori of tbe Reg
ister are not quite as charitable as most good
men are; for they seem lo think, that because
the editors of the Journal do not view all
things in the same light that they are wont to
do that therefore,they roust be either "inex
cusably ignorant or something woise." Now
we suppose, the editors of tbe American Rail
road Journal, view the prospects of the T. F.
fc C. R. R., in tbe same light that all dUin
terestea men of sound discretion must view
them, who are aware that this road is finished
and already doing a fine business, to say the
east 01 11, and me Junctiontt.lt. is a mere
imaginary, and impracticable project. We
are frank lo confess, that we are just "green'
enough, and wicked enough to say, that we
believe "the T. X. Jc C. B. R. is, and must
for tome years continue tv be, the only line of
road, connecting Southern Michigan, and
Northern Indiana and Illinois, and the far
West with the Eait,"
As we have already intimated, we have
few fenrs that the Junction R. R. will ever be
completed. XI it should be, it win remain,
as long as there is a vestige of it left, a sad
memento only, of the folly and stupidity of its

Reputation after Death.
It is very singular, how the fact of a man'8
death often seems to give people a truer idea
of his character, whether for good or evil,
than they have ever possessed while he was
living aud acting among them. Death is so
genuine a fact, that il excludes falsehood, or
betrays its emptiness; it is a touchstone that
proves the gold, and dishonors tho baser me

carry it out to the letter.

by stimulating those who are unfit to teaoh,
to qualify tbomaelvvs, for that honorable and

propriety of retireing from places they were

those whocs qualifications would do honor to

The increased interest manifested in the

In addition to a remarkable peculiarity of
the plant, 01 bearing two crops 01 Dowers in
one season, it also has another interesting and
beautiful property. We are indebted to the
United States Dispensatory of 1847, for tbe
following description of it:

these plants, sending out, near their roAts,

Its Medical history and Properties.
Are far the most important, since upon these
depends its value to the cotnttiuliiiy. Dr.'
London Bays that in 1709, it was so valuable
in England, that it was cultivated from seeds.
bver since 1808,
Prof. Ives, of Yale College,
(Ins hnbitunlly used it withfcreat success in
Scrofula and Chronic disease' and through
him its virtues were mado known, until, as
Dr. Tyler says, "it is now in this section New
Haven A common article in domestic prac
tice for the cure of Scrofula and cutaneous
diseases." Dr. Whitlow, a Scotch botanist of
notoriety, while traveling in America, in
1814, learned its use in Canada. Returning'
to England) he employed it in mdicnting his
baths, which became greatly celebrated for
the cure of similar diseases.
Dr. Parish, of Philadelphia,
Remarks that it has been successfully used
in bad cases of Scrofulous diseases.
Dr. J. II. Thompson, of the same place,
Prescribed it in bad cases of Scrofulous pa
tients at Wills' Hospital, His succes attrac

reports the following remarkablo case of
White Swelling of the hip, in February,

Dr. Webb of Madison, Ct.
Testifies to the value of Rock Rose, as evin
ced in the cure of numerous cases of the
Scrofula, especially in chilJren.
Dr. S. EULLER, of Hartford.
Administered the Rock Rose to a Scrofulous
female, in which the unti-acrofulous remedies
hud been applied without success. The dis
ease was fully arrested by it.
Dr. D. A. TYLER, of New Haven, Ct.,
Says that Mis. C, of delicate constitution,
when nineteen years of age, was afflicted
with n cough, and her neck was thickly stud
ded with tumors. A free use of the decoc
tion of the Rock Rose was used, and under'
the influence of this remedy her heath was
restored, and she not been afflicted with any
such symptoms sine).
He ultio relates the following: Mr. C, from'
a child, was afflicted with tbe ttcrofula, and'
had also Glandular Swellings on the neck.-
At the age of sixteen, he was much worse;'
had eight abscesses on the neck, three ulcers-
n the shoulder, and three on tha hips. He
consulted Dir. Munsou and Spalding of New '
tinven, Dut nil to no purpose. In 1817,.
when forty years of age, Mr. Smith, a farmer
from Long Island, observing' Mr. C, with'
bis bead drawn on one side, and unabie to-
labor, adviied him to try the Rock Rose regu
larly, which he did for four weeks. Th ul
cers broke, discharged and healed. The lu- '
mors lessened in size, his head resumed is -natural
position, and be went regularly to
work. Neglecting the us ol the Rock Rose, v
Scrofulous eymptoms again returned, and -he1- '
also bled at the lungs, for which Prof. - Ives "
prescribed the Rock Rose. He used it -agnin !
with the same benehcml result. -,
In his medical work published in 1047. quotes
the strong commendation of Dr. Eli lves,f 4 .
Professor in Yale College, who, in his lectures f.
to tlin medical students, recommended' the
use of the Rock Itufe, even in cases where
the disease is uncertain. i
The value of it has also been set forth by
Dr. Tyler, of New Haven, Ct., in a dissert Alton , ;
avowedly prepared for that purpose, whioh :
afterwards, at the request of several of his' . 1
medical brethren, was published in a pnm- .

We quote from the preface. He says ?. ij
that sice the delivery of this address, that i 'J'
"the plant under consideration has been more? :
fully tested, its virtues devolved, its character J
better established. 1 his dissertation is-pub- ki
itthed by the advice end approbation of seve- $
ral medical friends. The object of it is- to A

close of his addreF9, he says "I have other ,
interesting testimony, nnd might readily col
lect still more, but I will conclude by asking
only 0,'the profession nnd thu public, a more :
extended triul of the Rock Rose."
The testimony is from men experienced
in medicine, who are universally acknowl
edged to be the best judges. In this respect,
the piedicinal history of no plant will bear e
comparison with it, Its paral'el has not
been found. Byitsown nnnided powers, it
