Serious cases of deafness or
blindness should present them
6elves early, in order to have suf
ficient time to cure them.
From a number of extracts be
fore us, we select the following:
Deafness An 1 Extraordinary
Case. We learn from undoubted
authority that James Falls, of No
ble county, O., aged 40, has been
deaf and dumb from infancy; could
not hear any sound, not even a can
non, nor, the loudest thunder, He
was placed under Doctor Knapp's
treatment for deafness on the 26th
of September last, and now he can
hear so faint a sound as the tick of
his own watch, and of course is in
troduced to a new world of sounds.

Elegant Extracts, No. 2.
Tho fiigbtful contortions of the "caged
Democrat writhing ii chains' at the 'head
of the column in the erand entree of tbe
Richland delegation, to the great Vuilandig
ham ovation in 1863, are not to be compar
ed to the .contortions of the Hon. Gentle
man who writes butternut editorial for the
RfcoVd;' in trying to get himself out of his
fiut expression about the 'stale cry of Uni
on.' He wishes-us to; excuse Davis, Vai-
aniMgham& CbanJ aliowfirnT'to make an
unheard-of application of our 'buncombe.
His party has been, since the clow of the
war, trying to steal the thunder of the Uu
party, and lias gone so fur in some cases as
to claim that they done the whole work of
Unioo darlng, &c, but this ' proposition to
borrow our buncombe, is a new thing. We
would prefer, however, thai he take it, and
use it till he is done with it, than that he
should make buncombe of his own, and, by
putting it in quotations, try to palm it off as
a part of Tlud, Stephens' Congressional
speech. He says, ' ; ; ,
,';(See Thad Stephens' .'Congressional
speeches. By first irritating the South in
to a fight, and then crying out 'Union' to
get patriots to help us whip them, we got
them just where we wanted them," Sic.
"Ibbitatihq the South into a fight L-'
Why, sir, that is your old Democratic hob
by. You made that your excuse, the first
years of the war, for not doing your duty to
your country, in her hour of need jet,
don't you know that the Voorheseites, in
Indiana, took it all back the other day?
They passed resolutions, saying that 'the
war was just and necessary to prevent a
disruption of the Union and tbe overthrow
of the Constitution,' and ventured to thank
the Union army for their efforts, and now
you 'playing mou'li-piece for some Union
man, try to make him reiterate your explod
ed falsehoods of years ago, that we ot the
North irritated the South! You'ena blowed
that so m.ich, that you; Southern brethren
got holdV of it, ' and they' used to- say,
YOu'ens done come down he a to fight we
'ens, fo' we'ens done went up thai to fight
'To get patriots to help whip them 1
Who were the patriots who helped whip
them? -You can excuse the great butternut
party of Ohio from ranks, before you call
the roll of patriots they wero 'absent with
out leave.' This will let out tbe Canadian
gentlemen the bounty-jumpers the was-abjut-to-be
door-yard martyrs to ,'personaj
liberty' the gory. locked gentlemen who
played 'Golden Circle1 in ' babns and bt
ways the peace-on any-terms orators the
not-aman-or-a-dollar-for-the-war ' Con
gressmen the fellows who antied a dime
apiece to aid the great secession hero to
look respectable while looking over tbe bor
der. W hen you eicuse these, aud the fol
lowers ef the 'caged Democrat,' then you
can call the roll of patriots who 'helped
whip them.' But where, Mr. Sub-Editor,
would be you and yours in that day, when
patriots and soldiers should be sorted out
from rebels? in that day of roll-call and
reckoning? Where would be your butter
nut ticket? - Where your caiididate who de
clared butt, few days since, that if be 'bad

A New Link in the Chain of Events
A New Link in the Chain of Events---A New Chapter in History By
A New Link in the Chain of Events---A New Chapter in History By the "Record Man."
Tne man who communicates the "Uulon
aud Nigger Rump Rhyme" for the amuso
nient of the readers of the Record, suggests
that we "nut our foot in it" when we said
"the pardoned Democrats and amnestied
Johngohltcs, with others, were preventing
the peoplo of tho Southern States from re
turning to their allegiance to the Govern
ment;" and he says that "Lincoln prepared
tho way to a speedy restoration of all the
States to their proper relations," and that
"Johnsou steadily carried out bis plan."
How about it? What part of Lincoln's
plan was It to give back to rebels all their
property? Gen. Howard reports (April 23,
I8C0,) that by special order of Joiinson,
made lh tbe case of one B. B. Leak, and
"all slmilar cases," that he turned over to
pardoned LebeU, whom Johnton said f'were
restored to all their tightt of property ex
cept slaves," 430,104 acres of abandoned
land, which had been taken by Lincoln's
order, and was being held by the "Frccd
nien's Bureau" for the benefit of the Unit
ed 8tates.v '' '
What part of Lincoln's policy Is It to de
ny the negro protection under the laws of
the land, or to reAiso him a right to life,
liberty aud property, and the protection in
them under the law, as Johnson did when
he vetoed tho Civil Rights Bill? What
part of Lincoln's policy was it to veto the
Frecdmen's Bureau BUI, which was to car
ry out Lincoln's pledges to the colored men,
that if they would come into the war, (and
do the butternuts' share of the' fighting,)
they should be protected when tho war
was over? ,
Johnson carrying out Lincoln's policy 1
why, the thing's absurd I What part - of
Lincoln's policy Is Johnson carrying out In
his 22d of February speech, w hen, In a
drunken liarrangue, he abused . Lincoln's
best friends, ahd disgraced himself? What
part of Lincoln's policy is It to direct n
peaceable, loyal Convention, originally pr-
ganizeu under Mr. Lincoln's adminlstfa
tlon,'to be dispersed at the point of the
bayonet and by the hand of mob ? What
part of Llncoln'sjpolley Is It to come down
from tho dignity of a President to.controj
lugthe petty politics in school districts ?
Editor of Vinxos Record. Some
weeks since, I inserted a card .in yoqr col
umns, in relation to soldiers seodinz their
discharges to unknown, flafm, agents, and I
then remaritKU, that tne dim, in relation to
bounty, which-, sfias since passed,
had not become ' a ' law.' I certainly
had a right ta say what I did in that , card;
vet I see, in your last issue, some 'low fel
low' attempts to fling mean insinuations at
me, about my business transactions, and
mixing me up with the Cincinnati Furnace
Company, whom he calls 'the aristocracy.'
He manages to say some very low things
about some. of us; lor whom it)4 'hit,'. i(
there was any 'hit,' was intended. I hardly
know his 'English,' like his brains, is to
bsdly "muddled'. 1 wish to say, that if I
have ever done the fellow a wrong in any
business matter, I am ready to right it, if
I owe him a farthing. I am ready to pay it,
if I have ever swindled any soldier, i or
charged him exhorbitant fees. vr deceived
him sbout his legal rights, l stands ready to
remunerate him, but if the'purp' who wrote
that article, wished merely to drag my bus
iness matters into politics, or my politics in
to business, he cant do it. i am hot low
enough down . in the filth of partizaniBm,
to allow my political reelings to enter Into
business. I know of no man of the oppo
site party who can say that I aver treated
him unlnendly or ungentlemanly in busi
ness,, merely from political differences.
When I get so low as that, oi low. enouih
to try to injure the legitimate business of
my neighbor,' merely because we differ in
politics, then, and not till then, I will be
low enough to allow such contemptible fel
low as tbie 'Allies. Fuer' to write personal
abuse of me for county papers. If the
writer of the lo'v-flung stuff has anything
to say about the 'Cincinnati Furnace Com
pany .'.let him say it like a man. They are
responsible lor thur actions, but I sm not
employed to defend ihem.they have a general
reputation for truth and veracity equal, 1
hope, to that of their abuser, .-----j,
Nbw Mr. Editor, I trust yo wilt "tee
that this matter ends where it ii." If the
vote for j me.; If he baa any private .feeling
towards - me,' he can see me at ml ',ffiks.
I shall pay oo farther attention to him . nor
willl stoop to reply to another communica
tion, containing as :- much person&fV'fccKng
and. 'bad English' ss did bis. I irn.-vlth
little respect, bis obedient servant, -..
