Can set it nuil How to Detect lis I'resciicc.
Mr. Cnstc'llo, who has an absolute fond
ness for horses, requests us to publish tho
appended diagnosis of tho horso disease,
and account of remedial agents employed.
Tho Country Gentleman, published In
"Western Now York, says that tho disease
in catarrhal affectation of tho mucous sur
face, beginning at the nostrils and throat.
"When neglected or aggravated by expos
ure or fatigue, tho lungs becomo involved
and death speedily ensues. So far, tho at
tacks have proved comparatively mild, and
tho mortality has been light. This Is duo
in a great degree to tho prompt attention
and caro which havo been exercised by tho
owner In adopting preventive as well as
Tho general system of treatment which
has proved successful has been such as
would bo indicated in cases of severe cold
or influenza. Tho stables should bo thor
oughly ventilated, and disinfectants, such
as chloride of lime, carbolic acid, or bromo
chloralum, freoley used. Tho horses are to
bo kept Well blanketed, their bowels gent
ly open by tho use of bran mashes, and, if
necessary, aperients. The nostrils should
bo sponged out several times a day with a
weak solution of carbolic acid, or bromo
chloralum, to remove tho mucous. Bromo
ehloralum is also used as a wash for the
throat. The following prescription is used
quite commonly :
Nitrato potash, ljoz.; tartarized antimo
ny, 1 oz.; digitalis, J oz. l'ulvarlze all
together and make twelve powders ; give
one morning and niht. If the ease is not
very bad, omit the digitalis.
In cases whero tho soreness has reached
tho throat, tho following is used :
Linseed.oil, 1 oz. ; turpentine, 1J oz. ;
liquor ammonia fort, 1 oz. Mix all togeth
er in a four-ounce bottle and apply to the
The same vetrinary surgeon who recom
mends thoabovo prescriptions (Dr. Elliott,
of St. Catherine's) remarks :
"So long as the disease is confined to the
larynx, there is very little danger, but
should it descend to tho lungs which will
be indicated by tho continued standing up
of tho animal, cold extremities and labored
breathing a half pound of mustardshould
bo mixed with two ounces of turpentine
and water to tho consistency of thick
cream, and tho mixture rubbed well in be
hind the fore logs or over the region of the
lungs. The legs should be bandaged, if
cold. If the pulso should bo over flfty
livo per minute, fifteen drops of Fleming's
tincture of aconite should bo given every
two hours ; and if the breathing still con
tinues labored and the pulso grow more
rapid, apply the mustard again, and give
one and a half drachms of calomel for two
The homoeopathic treatment which ha3
been employed witli tho greatest success
by those who prefer that system, is aconite
and stibium in the lirst state of tbc disease,
and arsenlcum and nux vomica in the more
Tlin Cll.YKACTElt OF THE DISEASE.
Tho diseaso is highly epidemic in its
character, and the rapidity with which it
has spread gives reason for the gravest ap
prehension that it may become general in
its visitation. A horso onco affected re
covers in from ten to twenty days, accord
ing to the caro and skill exercised in the
treatment. So far no cases of relapse have
been heard of after a thorough cure has
once been effected.
How to Wear Winter Cloth lnj;.
In his experiments to determine the
heat conducting power of linen, cotton,
wool, and silk, Sir Humphrey Davy found
not only that these materials conducted
heat in the order given above, linen being
the best, but also that tho tightness or
looseness of wcavinir possessed an impor
tant inlluence. It is therefore evident that
in the selection of winter clothing, and
especially or that to bo worn nexttiiesiiln.
tho materials of least conducting wower,
as wool and silk, should be chosen, and the
fabrics should be loosely woven.
Aw regards tho external garments the
same rules apply with equal forco, but In
this case caro should bo taKen to remove
overcoats and shawls when in a warm
room : especially should this precaution
bo observed in tho instance of tho furs
worn by ladies. The habit of wearing
these articles for hours id succession while
shopping and visiting, often so weakens
tho powers of rcsistanco in tho wearers that
they become tho leady victims of inflam
mations of tho throat and lungs. To such
an extent does this occur in New York
that many of tho most skilful physicians
advise their patients to discontinue the use
of furs, and tho advico is often followed
witn tne most satisiactory results.
Jlo Itcttirni to tlic City mid ICrnlH I'rom
His ItuiimlH, KikmvIii!; Ho lint Done
J rent flood.
Mr. Johnson Is in tho city, and spent
the day yesterday in No. 5 Maxwell House,
resting on1 tho truly trying labors he has
been undergoing recently. Ho had slept
and freshened up greatly by after-tea,
and was inclined to dwell upon the inci
dents of the late warm and wearysomo
He told a Banner reporter that ho felt
very Well satisfied, bo tho result what it
might, as ho had as the standard-bearer of
the free and Independent people of Tennes
see, disrupted tho smothering crust which
was formed over tho best hopes of the
State. Ho had tho piestigo of no conven
tion, but did the bidding of those who
were sick nigh unto deatli of such flimsy
shams as had been called conventions in
this State, of late. Mr. Johnson said that,
while his undertaking had been an im
menseone, and had taxed his physical self
very severely, he had really enjoyed tho
canvass, and many times and many places
it had been like a regular "love least."
That gratitude was something sweet to one
who engenders it. That ho had been treat
ed so often to the sight of the grateful face
of somo one who had chanced to receive
some favor at his hands, that lie could but
remember the canvass most pleasantly.
He did not say this boastfully, nor as
though it were a mere morsel of self-grat-ulation,
but ho spoke it.with a genuine,
undisguised pride, and furthermore said
that, whenever a Tennesseean had come
to him, as had happened not unfrequeutly,
and said to him, "Mr. Johnson, I want to
shake your hand," his heart could but en-
oy it, lor it was very iiear to mm.
He felt fully satisfied that his work had
done great good, and that tho dawn of a
better day wa3 illuminating for the State.
Mr. Joluison was lresnanu ueclueuiy in
clined to talk. He observed that he didn't
think anything really dellnite could be
ascertained concerning tho State at Large
Congressional race m less than two or
three days, and spoke as though ho had no
fears for the result, Nashville Banner, 1th.
A Stiianoe Phenomenon. The Fay-
cttcsville (Ark.) News describes a singu
lar phenomenon that occurred In Madison
county, in that State. Some of the citi
zens were astonished by a noise like the
rush of a cannon ball through the air.
On looking up they discovered something
that looked like a solid column of fire pass
ing with tremendous velocity through tho
air, with a whirring, hissing sound, some
thing likeithat of a shell, but many fold
louder. About a minute or two after it
passed out of sight an awful explosion was
learu that shook tho carta lor miles
around, and was heard at a distance of fif

83 y 3 :
A Revolution ix House I'itsii.vo. The advertisement of tho Now Jersey Enamel Paint Company tins
boeu somo time In our columns, and it may scorn strango that it is only to-day wo ca 1 special attention to It.
Our reason .lor this is that wo do not liko to recommend n new thing unless wo know it is good. Wo wero
pleased to find that tho Agent, Mr. C. 1. Knight, was of our wny of thinking, nnd wished above nil, that tho
paint should bo tested, so that tho editor could give his conscientious opinion of its merits, Having had this
test made in our household, wo have no hesitancy in saying that tho Enamel Paint comes up fully to all that is
claimed for it. In the country, especially, wjtwo it is dlflicult to procure tho necessary ingredients for mixing
paint, and skillful workmen to apply it, thtnSnamcl Paint will provo invaluable, as it is already prepared, and
can be applied by any ono possessing ordinary Judgment. For plain work in privato dwellings, churches nnd
sahool-honses it will provo very economical as well as beautiful. Ono gallon of this paint will cover twonty
squaro yards, giving two coats. Our friends may safely glvo it a trial without fear of disappointment.
To the Public It affords mo much plcasureto state that In Jnly, 1171, Front Street Theatre was paiiltcd
Inside and out with ' JJradloy's Patent Enamel Paint." for which C. P. Knight, No. V3 West Lombard street, is
agent, nnd to testify to its superiority ovcrnnynndnll other paints for similar uses. In no privato dwelling can
paint possibly bo subjected to tho very severo test It undergoes at this establishment, where, during our daily
cleaning, soap and soda are constantly applied to it, and yet It appears as sound and fresh as when first put on.
Of tho numerous advantages it possesses over other paints I will only mention its being mixed and ready foruso
In quantities to suit purchasers; Us quickly drying properties, which eaves much time in the execution of work
where paint is needed, and its very perceptible tenacity. which imparts beauty and durability to tho objects on
which it is nsod. As such I most camostly recommend it to tho merchants and tradesmen of our city, believing
it will give them greater salisfactlon than they can possibly antlc'patn,
