A gentleman of this place, who was

resistance, and was eo drunk that a

" The Epizootic " is a new disease
among horses which is ravaging seve
ral of our northern cities at the pres
ent time, and it is to be feared will
spread with the rapidity of the cattle
disease, bringiug yet greater damage
in its train. - "
Sometime in the past week it made
its appearance in Kochestcr, N. Y.,
ami on the 22nd inst., it had progress
ed so far that the street railway com
panies were compelled to suspend bu
siness, as also the livery stables and
express companies. On the latter day
it assailed the horses of Buffalo. N. Y.,
with such virulence and to bo alarm
ing an extent that it was denominat
ed by the Journals of that city as h
public calamity.1' Many branches of
industry had suspended biisinr ss and
the disease having appeared amonir
the canal companies. " the commercial
men are alarmed." The papers of
New- York of the 24th inst. report
scrcn thousand horses in that city
as stricken with the disease "in the
past twenty four hours." The Epizoo
tic is not confined to any particular
clasn of horses " but all stables have
been visited by the disease, from the
squalid shed that shelters the coster
monger's nag to the magnificent pal
ace where the millionaires thorough
bred recline at ease, surrounded by all
the luxury that wealth can purchase."
In Albany, Troy and other places
along the Hudson, in Syracuse. Bos
ton, in a few short days, thousands up
on thousands of horses have been at
tacked. The veterinary surgeons dif
fer in opinion as to the real-natureof
the discace, but all concur that it is a
species of influenza, and the major
par pronounced it to be catahral fever.
The remedies proposed by the most
eminent veterinary surgeons are chlo
rate of potash or muriate of ammonia,
tar. dissolved with fluid, extract of
belladonna would have also a soothing
effect to the throat and a strong lini
ment well rubbed into the throat is
strongly advised. Dry diet is to be

of rather a laxative nature. Absolute
rest is contended for by all. The dis
ease Is said to be In the atmosphere and
no preventives have as yet beeii sug
gest, beyond . cleauliness, laxative
food, light work.and comfortable quar
ters. The X. V. Herald in speaking of
this disease says: It is a startling
announcement which will reach the
rraders of the Jlcrald this morning
that, at the lowest computation, there
are Ave thousand horses in this city af
flicted with a d.sease which, from its
alarmingly sudden appearance and no
less alarm ing spread, threatens to leave
New York forsome days without the
means of equine travel. It seem to be
au affection which veterinary surge
ons denominate catarrhal fever, and
commences with a couch. In a peri
od of about thirty-six hours a running
from the eyes and nose is developed
ar.d the horse becomes weak. If re
lief is not soon afforded he will suc
cumb. This epidemic, for it seems so
far to have attacked horses only, is
traced in its origin to Canada. Ac
counts now reaching us from points of
connection between that country and
New York tell of its gradual approach.
It was reported from Boston, Buffalo,
Rochester and Syracuse before reach
ing here; but whether it has been
spread by actual contagion or is due to
?omc atmospheric cause travelling this
way is not yet quite clear."

helped to enliven the time. This
grave and respectful old mao was the
link between the two magistrates at
Mount Vernon. Charles Thompson

Congress, which had directed the
cause of the colonics from desultory

Mutilated Currmcy IIw
Many persons must frequently have ;
on hand mutilated currency. They
can easily have it redeemed without
troul4iug the bank. From a letter
recently written by General Spinner,
explaining the act of June 8th, we
take the following: "It is the duty of
every postmaster to register in the
manner prescribed by law, but without
payment of any registration fee, alllet
ters eonkiiniiijr fractional or other eur
reney of the United States delivered
to him for mailing to the Treasurer of
the United htatea for redemption.
PoHtmastrra and others may forward
defaced and mutilated currency to this
ofliee for redemption,, and receive re
turns either In new currency or drafta
on New York, Uostort, Philadelphia or
Jew Orleann, without risk or expense
and with no loss of. time beyond that
required to convey and count their re
A Ttttr Love.
. One quiet day in leafy June, when
bees and birds were all in tune, two
lovers walked beneath the moon. The
nifrlrt was fair so was the maid ; they
walked and talked beneath the shade,
with none to barm or make afraid.
Her name was Sal and bi.i was Jim,
and he was fat and she was slim ; he
took to her and she took to him. Says
Jim to Sal: "By all the snakes that
squirm among the brush and breaker,
I love you better . thau buckwheat
Says the to Jim. since you've be
gun it and been and gone and done it.
I love you next to a new bonnet."
rays Jim to Sal, My heart you've
busted, nut l have always gals mis
trusted." Says Sal to Jim, I will le
true if you love me an I love you, no
knife cao cut our love in two." Says
Jim to Sal: "Through thick and thin
for your true lover count me in, I'll
court no other gal agin.
Jim JeaneU to Sal ; Sal leaned to
Jim, his nofe just touched above her
chin, four lipsjnet went ahem
ahem!, 'And then And then and
then. Oil, gals beware of men in
June", ' and . underneatb the silvery
moon, wnen trogs ana Junebugs are
in tune, lest you get your name in the
papers soon. - ,-, ... , ;
