Sardines. The loves of the "little fish
es biled in ile," shourd know that the
fish which furnishes them with such a
delicious repast belongs to the herring
family, and genns alosa. The popular
name was given to .it by Cuvier, who
was the first to assign it to a distinct
place in the finny tribe. He called it
sardina, from which it is known as the
sardine. Sardines are caught principally
along the coasts of Brittany, and to a
less extent in Portugal.' The fisheries
employ a large number of men arid wo
men. The fishing vessels of eight or
ten tons each, and carrying a crew of
from six to ten go out two or three
leagues from the land, and watch for
shoals of fish. When they see them
they spread their gill-nets for them, and
scatter on the water the bait which has
"been prepared, and which consists of
the,eggs and flesh of fish, especially ot
cod and mackerel, and sometimes of salt
ed fish. Large quantities of sardines
are taken in this way. Some are salted
on board, and others are carried on shore
and either sold fresh or prepared for
shipment. For the latter purpose, they
are salteand packed away in tin cans,
with melted butter and olive oil, which
is poured upon them in an almost boil
ing state. The cans are sealed up to
prevent the air reaching the fish, and
are then ready for shipment.
Family Tragedies. It seems that
murders of entire families are becom
ing frightfully numerous in the Uni
ted States. First we had the Dearing
tragedy near Philadelphia, and the
De'i-field murder in Tennessee, the per
petrators of which had a remarkable re
semblance to each other the shuffling
gait, the light hair, the boyish counten
ance, and even the absence of the thumb
of the right hand. Then was announc
ed the tragedy in York county; and then
the murder of a father and a son in Ar
kansas ; and now we have in West Ba
den, Orange county, Indiana, the mur
der of a family of four persons, killed
to prevent their testifying against their
murderer, who was soon to be tried for
arson. In this latter case the murderer
has been arrested, but even arrests and
convictions and executions do not seem
to prevent the occurrence of these terri
ble family butcheries, the mere descrip
tion of which is almost too horrible for
Tiik Bible ix Mexico. Mr. James
Ilickney, an agent of the American Bi
ble Society, has continued his labors in
Mexico through all the political chang
es in the country. His visits are glad
ly received, and his books taken with
avidity in the Republican army, while
the imperial Government permit his
labors to be uninterrupted within the
territory which it controls. In a letter
written from Monterey, Februury 28,
he describes a journey to Zacatecas,
three hundred miles distant, duting
which he sold above three hundred
books. A year ago he received an or
der to take his bibles out of the coun
try. But now he says : " What will
you say now when I tell you that exac
tly one year from that order I sold in
the homestead of the very man who
gave that order, 40 bibles and 60 testa
ments, and actually had arrangements
made for preaching !"
A Word to Freedmen. From the
best information we can get, the Freed
men in this and the adjoining countries,
are perfoi ming their respective labors
and fulfilling their contracts equally as
well if not better than was expected.
This is to their credit and we sincerely
hope for their own benefit and commun
ities, they will continue to do so. We
regret to say however it is not so much
so with the women, a good many of
them seem disposed to do nothing, or
work on short time, without any re
gard to the future or their contracts.
We urge upon all industrious and wor
thy Freedmen to use their best endeav
or to make their respective families do
their part as well as themselves. The
time will come when they will need it.
We suggest. this for their own henefit.
The Circular of Gov. Worth, announ
cing himself a candiate for re-election,
will be found in our columns of to-day.
Any many, by reading it, can see where
to locate the Governor. That his circular
will command for him the entire De
structive vote there is no doubt, and
this circular is a bid for the milk and ci
der Conservatives, but no true Conser
vative will be caught by the trap.
While Mr. Worth has been a Union
man, (for which he should be praised,)
he has been actingwith the Secession
party of the State and our honest opin
ion is that men who were Union men
and have now gone over to the Destruc
tives are worse men than the original
Secessionists. " By his company let
him be judged." Rutherford Star,
Beadle's Monthly opens with a bright
paper on the home habits and wives of
Young and Utah. Here he gets an
idea of the number of Brigham's wives :
There is a legend that one day a wo
man went to Brigham for counsel touch
ing some alleged oppression by an offi
cer of the church. Brigham, like a
true politician, assumed to know; ; but
when it became necessary to recordlier
case, hesitated and said. : :i
" Let.me see, sister I forgpt " your
" My name !" was the indignant re
ply ; " why I am your wife ?"
- " When did I marry you ?" . .
The woman informed the President,
who referred to an account-book in his
desk, and then' said : ' :
: Weli," I believe- you are right, I
knew your face was familiar 1''" ...

During late years the public have been misled
by large bottles, pretending to give a quart of
Extract of Sarsaparilla for one dollar. Most ot
these have been frauds upon the sick, for they not
onlycontaiu little, if any, Sarsaparilla, but often
no curative properties whatever. Hence, bitter
disappointment has followed the use of the vari
ous extracts of Sarsaparilla which flood the mar
ket, until tiie name itselt has become synonymous
with imposition and cheat. Still we call this
compound " Sarsaparilla," and ii tend to supply
snch a remedy as shall rescue the name frem the
load of obloquy which rests upon it. We think
we have ground for believing it has virtues which
are irresistible by the ordinary run of the diseases
it is intended to cure. We can only assure the
sick, that we offer them the best alterative which
we know how to produce, and we have reason to
believe it is by far the most effectual purilier ol
the blood yet discovered by any body.

known to surpass every other remedy for the
cure of Coughs, Colds, Influenza, Hoarseness,
