Letter from C. L. Vallandigham.
DAYTON, O., April 3, 1867.
Leonard H. Miller, Esq., Ottowa, O.
.
iMYDnAit Sir: Yours of tho:27tli
til t., inviting1 me, on behalf y6ur
Central Committee, ; to address a
mass meeting of the Democracy of
the Tenth and Fifth Congressional
Districts oi Ohio, to- bo composed,
as you say, of "men who are not
afriiid to havo Vallandigham speak''
was duly received. Having twice
fuilod, because! of accident or sick
ness, to till my appointment in
vour county, 1 am fairly under ob
ligation to accept, and I do it most
cheerfully. . isut it can not beat an
early day, as, you request; nor, in
deed, earlier than .September, inas
much as my professional engngo
ments, to which 1 now devote all
mv time and attention, will not
permit. .' '.
But anv appointment which you
may make for me at that period, I
will hold rnysell in readiness to till:
since it will be but payment in
part, of the annual interest which
I.owo to tho Democracy of Ohio,
as well for political favor; and sup
port, as upon that "heavy pecunia
ry advancement," so-called by soma
and by shallow, fellows referred lo
very wittily ever and -anon as; tho
"ten cent fund;" but which I regard
as the most honorable testimonial
ever bestowed upon : any public
man in any country. Meantime,
allow mo a passing word on the
situation.
Dark as tho days have been, and
certain as the total overthrow was,
of our original form of constitu
tional government, already badly
wrecked, and shattered, had our en
emies but possessed the revolution
ary audacity to drivo on, I see now
distinct glimmerings of dawn,
which, I trust, will, sooner or later,
ripen into the. perfect day..
First.. Tho C-ounecticut election
is not only full of encouragement,
but most gratifying. It was fit that
the home of -Thomas II. Seymour,
and tho State, of all others in the
East, most firm and radical in its
Democracy, and v here true "Copperheads"
did and do still most
abound, shonld?l first of all, giyo
signs of this coming reaction in
the North. Two years ago tho nia
jprity for Buckingham (Republi
can) for, Governor was .11,035 over
0. S. Seymour ; (Democrat). Now
English .(Democrat), divested
the deadweight -of-last spring and
fall, , beats ,Dawley-.(Republican
sevei hundred, and. we elect three
ont of the four representatives,
Congress. .Verily, there has, been,
a ; resurrection ; and, that "dead
, - i ; . -' -
AVOIilULltlUV I j , E,l o-wuiuko
it ipay bej.and, boupd about with
napkin, has come forth; but refresh:
ed and strengthened, by its,, plumbers.-
i j have long had the: pleas-urei-jOf
"personal ; acquaintance
with Governor lEnglishj .;During
the thiee tessious of vthe,.Thirty-
seventhiGongress, and : throughout,
the.first twoyears of . the war year&
of especial . frenzy, ' he sat by my
side, when at any moment a stray
buHet, aimed at auotlier, might
Live struck him to. tho lloor. I al
vfays tound him a friend; and now,
with peculiar pleasure, hail him as
first of Democratic Governors in
the new era. Let Ohio pow, first
of all States in the North-west, fol
low Connecticut on the roll of Dem
ocratic Stales; and she will.
r.yejel: The failure of Congress to
depose the President is tho most
hopeful omen of tho times. In
the first place, melancholy as have
been and still nro tho weakness
find incapacity, of Andrew John
ton I do not question his sinceri
ljLJuaJjUU a most impending
obstacle in tho way of tho revolu
tionary chariot. But far moro than
this deeper, more enduring, moro
significant the failuro clearly in
dicates thai the fury and audacity
of tho revolutionary party, to
which, more than to all other caus
es, they owed their success, are on
the wane. In revolutions a step
backward is death, and a pause
midway, tho beginning of dissolu
tion. Now is' the auspicious mo
ment for us. Providence lias Slice
more given to us a chance to res
cuo from tho dgslroyers, tho site
a li'd foundations, at loast, of tho
now fallen and dishonored temple
of lree Federal republican govern
ment, and to reconstruct it very
nearly after the model of the old.
Sfyall tho chance . be again cast
nway? No: let us shun tho errors,
tho hefitanciesy tho entanglements
and tho timidities of., the past, and
let the people speak to their lead
ers that the work shall go forward.
If tho men of tho South will but
consent to be patient, learning to
remain passive and to enduro, all
may 'yet be well. Submission to
tyrannio force, to military coercion,
is one thing voluntary servitude
quite another. 'In any event, we
havo 'our own rights, duties and
obligations to free Constitutional
government, from which no act of
any Other State, section or people
can absolve us. . ,;
,' As to tho Louisvillo Convention,
a word The Democratic party of
Ohio,' T3j formal resolution "of the
recent State Convention, has com
mitted itself to a general delegate
convention, suggesting Louisvjlle
as the place for.it. The State Cen
tral Committee lias, therefore, no
discretion in tho matter. Indeed,
the movement originated in Ohio,
by the aclion.of our . committee in
July last, r have myself . in no
other way been concerned in it ;
but am not- able to perceive any"
good reason w hy it should not be
held. It is designed only, as I un
derstand, for consultation and the
expression of opinion, and with no
view, to candidates, for tho presi
dential campaign of 18C3. , Neither
can it bind any one by a "platform."
But why not meet andeontult?
What better means of promoting
concert and organization . than a
general convention? "Warn the
committees," were the dying words
of Jefferson'.' 'Let us first have com
mittees and organization every
where. Suggesting respe3tfully
that the Convention be postponed
till the Fourth of Julv, I trust that
whether "National" committees or
State committees concur or not,tho
district and local committees and
the Democratic masses will see to
it that delegates are appointed,and
that the gallant and lately oppress
ed Democracy of Kentucky, under
whoso immediate auspices the Con
vehtion is to be held they who,
last summer, first taught that Han
nibal might be conquered are not
coldly and ungenerously rebuked
and repudiated by their brethren
in other States. .

Oppression. Don't Eat Raw Ham.
The lesson to bo drawn from the
cases of trichinasis reported, is sum
med up in just these four words.
Whjlo i authorities differ; in many
other things with regard to this
new and ugly di.aense; all a'greo'that
if ham .and pork aro, thoroughly
cooked, there is no danger in eith
er. Sometimes the dieaso has
been communicated by eating im
perlcctly cured "dried" beef," but
here, too, nil danger disappears
when tho beef is well cooked.
These, and other facts of especial
interest to the medical profession,
aro admirably set forth in a com
munication to the New York Medi
cal Record, by Dr. Iiistine, of Mar
ion, Iowa, who has treated several
cases ot this disease. Dr. Ristirw
sums up tho case as follows :
1. That symptoms indicating tho
presence of young trichinae in tho
tissues aro observed as early or
earlier than tho fourth day after tho
investigation of t'le triehinous
meat. " ' .
2. That cysts aro formed as early
as tho twenty-fifth day.
3. That, other things being equal,
the severity of tho symptoms is iii
direct proportion to tlio amount of
liichinous meat eaten. -'
4. That an activo. cathartic giv
en While the worms are still with
in tho intestinal canal, is effectual
to a certain degree in causing their
expulsion and mitigatiug the teve
rity of tlio disease.
5. That youth affords no immun
ity from tho effects of the disease.
C. That salting and smoking do
not destroy tho vitality of the par
asite. ' . .
7. That thorough cooking accom
plishes this object.'
Love Making in Olden Times.
In the history of the Troubadors
are very long and curious directs
ions for making love. In the reign
of Elisabeth, thefollowing "prac
tices prevailed :
Playing with tho littlo finger in
amorous dalliance; sitting or lying
at the feet of their mistresses in
ballrooms; looking sugar plums in
their eyes, as they called gazing
closely and amorously into each
other's optics. They also exhibit
ed their passions publicly. A non-
dant lock of hair often plaited and
tied with ribbon, and hanging at
tho ear, was so fashionable in tho
age of Shakspeare, and afterward,
that Charles I, and many of his
courtiers .wore them. This lock
was worn on tho left side, and hung
down by the shoulder, considerably
longer than tho rest of tho hair,
sometimes even to the girdle It
was supposed to havo tho effect of
causing violent love, and was origi
nally a French custom.
Wig3 were mado to obtain it.'
Burton adds to the love-lock a
flower worn in tho ear. Kissing
tho eyes was a mark of extraordin
ary tenderness. In the fore part of
tho stays was anciently a pocket,
where women not only carried love
letters and tokens, but even money
and materials for needdle-work.
When prominent stays were worn,
lovers dropped their literary favors
into them. If a woman put a lovo
letter into the bosom pocket, it
was a token of her affection. Wil
low garlands were worn by persons
disappointed in love, supposed
from the tree's promoting chastity
or tho famous passage in the
Psalms. The liberties allowed to
lovers and even to intimate ac
quaintances, in tho times of Eliza
beth and James, were indecorous.
Joke on Ben Butler.
According to tho Washington
correspondent of -the Boston Cour
ier, Butler is moro . persecuted out
of the llouso .than in it. . All sorts
of jokes respecting him are scrib
bled on the walls of hotels and pub
lic bnildirigs.- He boarded at tho
KirkWood House,' and when that
establishment was closed,- a story
was started that the hotel was shut
up. because one: of the, hoarders
had stolen all the spoons. After
a week:of horribly rainy weather,
somebody wrote on the -wall at'
Willard's Hotel:' "What makes the
clouds so black this week? -Ans.
Because Butler'- hat stole t '4befr
