At a caucus of the democratic memliers

address was unanimously adopted.

At a meeting of the members of the
na'ional democraticexecntivc committee,
held on the third of March, 1877, the
following address wai unanimously
A. P. Hewitt, Chairman,
V. F. 0. Prince, Secretary.
To the American People :
We submit to the country the follow
ing review of events, which have resulted
in the declaration that Rutherford 15.
Hayes has been elected president of the
United States. In the late political can
vass two f.icts stood out prominently.
First, The republican party, true to its
sectional nature, thought to unify the
ncrth against a solid south, and while en
gaged in that effort, it was striving to
make good its probable losses in the north
by dividing the votes of the south ; this
division it sought to effect by an uncon
stitutional use of the army in South Car
olina, Louisiana and Florida. Second,
The troops were sent to thobe states when
there was neither invasion nor dome-tic
insurrection to require them, with legis
latures easily to be convened. The only
demand tor their presence was made by
the state executive. The elections in
these states, therefore, were hold under
the shadow of military power; the bay
onets gii-tened at the polls , in depositing
their ballots, citizens enjoyed only such
liberty as the military permitted. In the
other states the elections were unusually
peaceful. Immediately after the election,
the result allowed that one hundred and
ninety-six Tilden electors had been
chosen of the whole popular vote. They
received a majority of more than a quar
ter of a million of that Caucasian racs
which controls every other christian and
civilized government of the world. They
received a majority of more than
one million. On the day succeeding
the election it was announced by
the chairman of the republican na
tional committee that one hundred aud
eighty-four Tilden and one hundred and
eglity-five Hayes electors hail been
chosen. Nothing had then been learned
of the election excepting the vote actu
ally cast. It has never since been dis
puted that by that vi-fte a majority ot
Tilden electors had bcrn appointed.
Such announcement, therefore, could
only have been made in pur.-uanee ot
arrangements to changi? the vote shown
to have been given by the people. We
charge that alter the re-nilt had been
proclaimed a conspiracy was formed by
the rcpuMicau leaders to reverse the de
cision made at the polls. The field
chosen for the development ot ths con
spiracy was the states of Florida and
Louisiana. The persons to act with the
original conspirators were the governors
and members of th returning boards of
those states. Tiio field was well chosen.
The state officers selected were suitable
persons for the work to be done. For
more than ten ye tr.i 'hose states had been
subjected to a government not of thi-ir
choice. Taxation and mal-administra-tion
had lobbed them of thrir sub-dance,
and well-nigh destroyed their spirit and
hope. The army of the United States
had been freely u?d to maintain those
governments in their acts of corruption
aud usurpation. It win believed that its
services would aid in a designed conspi
racy. The names of officers depended
upon are Cellus L. Stearns, Samuel B.
M'Lin and Clayton A. Cowgill, of Flor
ida, and Wm. Pitt Kellogg, J. Madison
Wells, Tlios. 15. Anderson, K. . Ca--a-riare
and .1. P.. Keurer, of Louisiana.
Those men were not strangers to the
American people. They had before
usurped authority. The returning
bonds of those states had made them
selves by-words in the land. The gov
ernors were known to be pretenders. If
there were two names di-honored in the
gioeral estimation, thev were name of
W. P. Kellogg, and .1.' MadNon Wells.
To such men was the work of con-aim
mating the con-piracy confided. Tlr y
entered upon their trust with alaeri'v,
advised and encouraged by the leading
visiting republicans and statesmen of the
north. They took each step with delib
eration and apparent regard for law.
Pefore the election in Louisiana Wm.
Pitt Kellogg ami his subordinates as
sumed exclusive control of the execu
tion of the registry law. They refu-ed
registration to thousands entitled to it.
and added thousands to the lists who
had no right to Vote on the day of elec
tion. The p.dls were manage ! by ofli
oiaJs appointed by the governor. These
were in nearly every instance members
of the republican party. United States
marshals swarmed at every precinct,
when thought necessary, under the pre
tense of preserving peace, but in fact to
intimidate votes. The ballot-boxes were
stuffed in the interest of the republican
candidates; the poll books were falsified
in some instances, and then returned to
the canvassing loard, while in other
cases returns giving democratic majori
ties were withheld from the canvassers
altogether. After the returns had Wen
delivered to the board they remained in
its exclusive. possession, and while there
they were opened, with its consent and the
original papers abstracted and fi!-e ones
substituted in their stead. When the
returns were opened the board, with ti e
appearance of fairness, permitted person
representing both parlies to be present,
but when a decision was ma le as to what
should be counted, secret sesi ns were
held from which every democrat was
excluded, although the law con-titntini'
the board required that it should be
comjH).std of representatives ol Itoth po
litical parties. In counting the votes it
exercised powers not conferred by the
Htatute, and in flagrant disregard ot
truth and justice, the members ot the
board changed the poll liooks .-o that re
publican officers appeared to le cho-en,
when the opponents had in fact la?n
lected. They forged the nan.es of the
Ofiicers to the certificate of election, and
they threw out che votes of precinct
upon affidavits, which they knew had
been fraudulently obtained ; indeed,
they themselves ordered fal-e r.flidavit
to be made hundreds of miles from the
places at which thev were purported to
have lx-en taken, in order that the decis
ion might appear to be ju-tified wnich
they had in advance determined t make
They arbitrarily threw .tit voles where
there was no preli.idaary statement from
the commi-sioners of election to give
them jurisdiction, and they corri:pt!y,in
order to elect their favorites and io cor
rect the mistakes of ceitai n republican
in voting for elector, added to the lists
Totes which had nevet he m cast. While
considering the ease, the nitinoers oi the
board endeavored to enter into ueunii-i
tions with both the republican and dem
ocratic national committees to sell tneir
decision. A halt million dollars was the
price asked, and, not obtaining it, they
tried to bargain with the leading demo
crats of Louisiana to elect the state
ticket of the party. Madison Wells
with the approval of Thomas C. Ander
on, offered to elect the Nicholls state
ticket for two hundred thousand dollars,
cash in hand. The money was not paid,
and negotiations were then renewed, ami
if ever broken oft with tlic leaders i uie
republican party the result was declare.!
iu its favor. The chief conspirator, .!.
Madison Wells, admitted that he fcad
been paid by that organization lorhisde
cision. In Florida the same fiaudacha1
acterized the returns and action of th
returning board. Yules were thrown
out with the same disregard to ju.-the:
besides, in that state it refused to regard
the orders of courts of competent juris
diction, and proceeded in most defiant
contempt of judicial authority. In this
manner more than one thousand Tilden
yotes were thrown out in Florida and
more tuau ten thousand in Ixmi-iana.
The votes of those states, in consequence
of the conspiracy, which, in fact, had
been cast for Tilden, were given to Hayes, j
The only excuse for this outrageous re
versal ef the judgment of the people is
that intimidation has been practiced by
the whites against the voters where the
votes were thrown out. Whether this
intimidation compelled some persona to
vote against their will, or prevented
some from attending the polls, itafforded
in either case no justification for the de
liberate reject ion of ballots by the return
ing h-eird : r.n: iht; statute of Louisiana
only authorized proof of in'-iaii-datin
in ca-i-s where charges ot
violence were made in writ
ing by the commissioners of elections on
the day when the election was held.
These charges were to be inclosed to the
board in the envelopes containing there
turns. In a f w ca-es only were charges
made as required. In the rest evidence
wm received without proof or founda
tion having been laid. The evidence
read consisted in the main of affidavits
written out by the clerks and employes
of the returning board, without ever
having been seen by the persons purport
ing to ceitiiyto them. There was, there
fore, no adequate proof of intimidation.
It may b remarked here that the temp
tation to Kelloggand his returning board
was very great to manufacture cases of
intimidation, lor it was only by them
that the democratic majority could be
overthrown and the conspiracy be suc
cessful. We should not fail to call at
tention of the people to the dangerous ef
fect of this doctrine of intimidation in
politics. It disqualifies for voting not
only the parties to acts of intimidation,
but al.-o all those who voted at the same
precinct. Two persons may conclude to
make a casc'of intimidation, and thereby
cause a parish casting thousands of votes
to be rejected. It make all elections
only a farce. 'It takes the power from
the people, to rtst it in returning boards.
It enables the latter to impose the se
verest of political penalties disfran
chise mem without riving to the per
sons, puni-hed ai opportunity of hearing
or trial. A republic deserves to lose its
liberties il it tolorates such outrages
for an hour. I5y this disregard of law,
disobedience of the courts, and contempt
of the l ights of voters ; by their frauds,
and corruptions, and usurpations; by
their briberies, and perjuries, and forge
ries did the conspirators obtain cirtifi
eates of election for the republican can
didates in the southern states named.
Fro n the day that certificates were is
sued to the Hayes electors in Louisiana
and Florida, the country has been filled
with an unprecedented excitement.
People have done littl else than engage
in discussion as to the fraudulent con
duct of the returning boards. In this
condition of allairr, business has been
generally suspended, failures have been
frequent, and prostration has seized up
on nearly every interest in the land.
AVhen the excitement was at its heiarht,
congress assembled. One of its duties
was to count the electoral votes of the
j states, including Florida and Louisiana.
Willi the view of facilitating the count
j and providing for the peaceful perform
! ance of its duty by congress, a bill was
passed creating an electoral commission.
Fy the law the commission was to ascer
tain the true r.nd lawful vote of every
sta'ce. In this labor it was to exercise,
as to the hearing of evidence and the ex
amination of papers, such power as con
gress, or either house of congress pos
sessed. In the belief that evidence
would le heard, and that a settlement
of the disputed question of facts would
be fairly reached, the congress and jeo
ple accepted the commission. How that
confidence has been disappointed; how
a decision has been ma le, baed upon a
refusal to consider the unfortunate ques
tion of dispute, is well known to thecjun
try. When the certificates from Florida
and Louisiana wereopenedandsubmitted
to the two houses, objections were filed
to them, and presented by the Hayes
electors. Among other grounds of ob
j-'c ion, it was urged that these certifl
cateshad been fr.-uiduler.tlyand corruptly
is-ued by the returning boards and ex
ecutives of these states, and as a result
of the con-piracy between them and the
electors claiming to have been chosen;
that such certificates had been issued in
violation of the laws of the respective
states, arid that some of the electors
nann-d therein were ineligible by an
express provi-ion of the constitution of
the United States. When these objec
tions were made the consideration before
the commission hereof, and the commis
sion asked to sustain, the commission by
a vote of eight to seven refused to re
ceive the testimony offered except as to
in: iigihility of a single member in Flor
ida. 1 1 was voted, in a case in Louisiana,
that tiie commi; .sion would not have evi
dence to show that the returning board
was an unconstitutional body; that it
was not organized as the law requires at
the time the vote was canvassed ; that it
had no jurisdiction to canvass the elec
toral vote ; that the charges of riot, in
timidation and violence were false, and
that the returning board knew that fact;
that certificates were corruptlyand fraud
ulently issued, and as a result of con
spiracy; and that the vote of the state
lias never been computed or canvassed.
The same rulings were substantially
made in the case of Florida. The com
mission also relused to hear proof that at
ihe time of the election in South Caro
lina anarchy prevailed, destroying the
republican form of government in that
state, and that troops were retained there
in violation of the constitution, to inter
fere with free choice by election, so that
the lawful vote of the state could not lie
known. Against the decisions we pro
test mot earnestly, in the name of free
and republican government. In the first
place, they struck a fatal blow at the
con.iiulioiuil powers of the two houses
t count the electoral vote; this jiower
lui ! been exercised by both houses with
out dispute from the foundation of tie
govi rmncnt. That the evidence should
he reached ill the cases of contested rc
tuii s s. ems clear. The principle has
b-.-i ti maintained by the ablc.-t statesmen
the country has produced. It was prac
tiee confined to principle. In the secret
se-s'- n, tiotably in the case of Ixmisiana
in 1 .v;' riisd IS73, such evidently was the
view or both hou ses. At vhe present ses
sion the investigating committee were
went to rioriiia, South Caiolina and Lou
isiana to take testimony and report as to
the elcdions in these states. It is diffi
cult to see upon what principle this
view can be b:t-cd. The duty of cou-grc-s
is to count the vote. This makes
the . nact ae nt of the vote to be counted ;
tiii . ;:gain. makes a determination of
wh . is the true vote, and this distin
gui :i' g ot ihe false from the true re
qui:: s cvid-. nceot the forms of law ex
pressing the fact. It cannot be made un
less tie" evidence be admitted; for, ii
frai: 1 possesses the count, how can
tic count how can the success of
lals-. h od be prevented, if either jury be
deir -il ? The action of the commission
disi !.s congress from performing certain
co.i-titutimal rights. In the second
pi. ice, lai.s, decision nullifies an article of
the constitution. In section 1, article
-13. is provided: "But no senator or
rep:es nt.itive, or other person holding
an oflice of trust or profit unde :thie
United States shall be appointed an elec
tor." If the states choose electors who
are ineligible, how can this provision be
made t-fti dual ? The state by this ac
tion has refused fo repeal it; mani.'estly
it cm then only be forced by the power
authorized to pass upon the vote which
the state hag returned. Congress, then,
in counting the vote, must determine
who are ami who are not eligible elec
tors; tacts which can only ascertained ';
by the evidence aliunde. Any other ;
doctrine abrogates the previous construe- '
tiori, aud in effect substitutes the follow- i
ing: "Seua.ors, representatives and alii
ottier pi rsons holding o: rices of trust or I
profit under the United States.may heap- '
jKii te 1 eh ctors." In the third place, the
iloct . iiie ignores all precedents and rules j
of i,erals in excludiug evidence of fraud
submitted. Nothing can stand which is j
tarn sh. d by Ir.iud. It vitiates every- !
thin r; it annuls every deed; cancels every j
obligation; annulsc-vi-ry contract-, rever.-es
evciy judgment. Kvery tribunal, how- 1
ever organized is bound to regard every ;
fraudulent transaction as a nullity, how- i
ever it may come bei'.re it, whetuer di-
rect y iu a'dependent proceeding, or col
latc'tily. The decision t.t the highest
tribunal, if procured through Jijiid,
hould l e treated as of uoeiiect by the
huinbkt court in the land. As said by
a distinguished writer, "It matters not
whether the judgment impunged has
been pronounced by an inferior or by the
highest court of the land." But in all
cases alike it is competent for every court,
whether inferior or superior, to treat as a
nullity any jugdment that can be clearly
shown to have been obtained by manifest
fraud. It remained for this commission to
dictate that there were certain tribunals
which could perpetrate fraud with im
punity, and that there was one court
which could not lay its hands
upon fraud when brought before
it for re iew. Those exceptional tri
bunals were the returning boards of
Louisiana and Florida; that exceptional
court is the electoral commission. Fraud
has found an intrenchment from which
it could not be driven, mocking the
choice of the highest office of the great
est of republics. A doctrine more cor
rupting in consequences, more destruc
tive of the purity of elections, and more
threatening to free goverjment, could
not easily be suggested. It is
sought to justify this decision
by an appeal to state sovereignty.
This argument ii, that asthestate choose
their electors in titeir sovereign capacity,
their decision cannot be reversed bj any
other authority. Tu is po position pushes
to its furthest limit the doctrine of states '
rights. The theory of flic most advanced
advocates of that school was only that the
states were sovereign as o the reserved j
poweis over them which were delegated.
It wasconceded that the constitution was J
supreme; the power to choose electors!
would not have existed except for the
constitution. It was, therefore, a dele-1
gated power. Ihe legislature of a state
choases its electors by virtue of a consti
tutional provision. It is a dutv to be
Ir''orme I by the state while in the
union ; it cannot perform it before admis-1
sion. nor after the union is disputed, j
Could it be possible that there is no power I
in the union to determine how the duty !
lias been performed, and whether in com
pliance with the constitutional provision
to assert this doctrine, to declare an ab
solute independence of the states, to deny
the supremacy of the constitution, and to
ieavethe United States powerless against
fraua or violence ot
may force a president
The power to review the action of the
electoral college seems necessarily to be
derived from the nature of a confederated
government. If a party to a compact
possesses power as to its subject matter
superior to the power delegated by agree
ment, the comnact inevitably falls ; for
it is impossible for a confederacy to exist
unless the jurisdiction of its individual
mambers as to powers committed to the
confederation is subordinated to the
larger jurisdiction of the latter. If, for
example, as m thiscase, one state can re
ceive its functions as to electing a presi
1 dent in violation of the constitution,
j without any power in the union to revise
. its action, then a constitution is unnec
j essary for the delegation of power, and
! the nation may be governed in violation
j of the very instrument which created it;
1 but whatever the power of congress as to
' its authority over the vote of the e'c
j ttr-. it is certainly not bound to treat as
I valid a fraudulent certificate. It matters
; not how absolute the sovereignty under
winch a fraud is perpetrated, it cannot
receive protection nor be granted recog-
nilion if there be a tribunal to which the
certificates are submitted. It is bound
to treat them as worthless. The certifi
cates were chareed to be fraudulent. The
commission, if it counted them, gave
them validity. It Jailed in its duty to
hear faet to prevent the success of fraud,
even though certificates came from a sov
ereignty a hundred-fold greater than
Ixmisiana or Florida. By these methods,
under forms presciibed by the law consti
tutinr the electoral commission, Ruther
ford B. I Lives has been declared elected
president of the United States. His title
rests upon the disfranchisementjef lawful
voters, the false certificates of returning
officers acting corruptly, and the decision
of a commission which has refused to near
evidence of fraud. For the first time
are the American people confronted with
the iiict ot a president fraudulently elec
ted. 1 1 i- inauguration will be peacefHl,
and in that hour the most infamous con
si.iracyof all history will receiveitscrown.
In thcexcitinsr days just passed the forbear
ance of the people has maintained peace.
Let it not, however, from this be under
stood that the fraud consummated on
March 4th will be silently acquiesced in
by the country. Let no hour pa-s in
which usurpation is foreoiten; Jet agita
tion be increased so .that at every oppor
tunity the people may express their ab
horrence of the outrage; let a want of
confidence be voted at every election in
Mr. Hayes and his administration. Uoth
mtifct be controlled by the conspirators
who have elected the one and organized
the other, and whatever good may come
from either will always be darkened by
the stain to their title. Let the demo
cratic party reorganize at once for new
contest? to secure overwhelming victo
ries, so that the conspirators may never
again attempt the experiment which now
humiliates the republic, and has installed
iu its highest office a usuper.

Washington, March 5. Hon. Abram
S. Hewitt resigned his position as chair
man of the democratic national com
mittee in a letter of considerable length,
in which he asserts that the result oi the
electoral bill has disappointed the hopes
of eve1 y lover of his country, and that
the grievous wrong has been pertetuated
of awarding the presidency to a candi
date who has no just title to the honors.
Mr. Hewitt defends his action upon that
lii'!. and regarding his assent to the com
pkt'on of tlie count says that as an hon
orable man, no it her course was i ;vn to
him; but if honor had permitted other
wise, his judgment was that it was the
wisest course ot the country, as well as
the democratic party, to proct-e I iu
accordance to law to the orderly com
pletion of the count, although" they
knew it would result in the instalhn ion ol
I Lives. J e recites his opinion that disas
trous consequences would have resulted
in the defeat of the count, resulting even
tually in civil war, and to him it ap
peared ou one side anarchy and war and
on the other jeace find order, and says,
in the conclusion of his letter: " L'nder

Foulty has its fanciers and swine its

branch of the business are largely enthu

ride a hobby. This i3 natural and right;
in fact, were it net so, the results at

thorough wedding to an occupation that

are the hens supplanting the hogs ? It is
stated on authority that if the same
quantity of food is given to chickens
that is fed to a hog, they will produce
more pounds, and return greater margin
of profit, than the pork, to say nothing
of the eggs produced, and they will pay
for thij grain. Pigs, from the time they
bieathe, are calling for food, and the
amount consumed in growing and fatten
ing a hog is surprising. Then, when we
consider the immensely greater value
there is in poultry meat over pork for
producing brain and muscle, is it not
fair to suppose that poultry will make
inroads upon pork, and we shall find our

There is a very common prejudice
against the toad. Hy many he is looked

and uniust, as the toad is not onlv harm
less, but quite useful to farmers and gar-
deners. They should, therefore, be re-
garded as friends, instead of being treat -

usually laid in the water, but at times,
when this is not accessible, they are laid
in damp dark places, and in such cases

eineet Corn tor Feeding;.
Many farmers (though not every one),
know the value of sweet corn in its
season lor feeding to swine, and cows in
milk. At the time sweet corn is fit to
feed, the drought of summer is very
likelv to cut the supply of grass short,
and the pasture for both cow and swine
will be scant in milk-giving properties.
To breeders who are raising thoroughbred
pigs, this early, rich, succulent feed is of
the highest value. About the time it is
ready to feed, the breeding sows begin to
get reduced from suckling, and the pigs
are large enough to begin to make way
with fair rations, it suitable food is
within their reach. There is perhaps
nothing better for young pigs than old
sweet corn soaked soft. The new corn,
from the time it is in milk until it is
entirely ripe, may be said to be next in
value to the old corn, soaked.
In planting a patch for family u-e
(which every larmer should do), increase
the area according to your needs, bear
ing in mind that for sows giving milk
ar.d for youns; pi-rs intended foi shitv
ment .is breeders or or the shambles
it is the very best et otioiiiv to feed lilier
ally i:i warm weather, for "then growth is
made rapidly, and the foundation is laid
lor size and vigor lie fore cold weather
sets in. The same doctrine is applicable
to mileh cows, for no animal on the farm
suffera greater depreciation, for either
the dairy or for future fatting, than the
cow llinf is permitted to get low in flesh
A patch of sweet corn, not too far from
the farm buildings where the ground can
be conveniently manured and tended at
odd times, and when- it will be easy of
access for family use, should lie one ot
the standing regulations of the farm. So
located it will be convenient to cuL up
fur feed the pasture for the nigs and the
yard for the milch cow beinir supposed
to be near at hai.d. .fier the crop is
matured, the ground wiil be if the corn
hs reieieved fair attention in best pos
sible condition for a crop of turnips, and
the man who will try this mode of rais
ing food for the uses pointed out, we are
convinced, will admi'. the wisdom of its
continuance. WetUrn Farm Journal.

It is idle to talk of cure in a disease of
this nature. Generally speaking, even
if the animals be in health, a small
quantity of niter and sulphur, occasion
ally mixed up with their food, besides
stimulating their appetite, will frequent
ly prevent disease; neither can we too
much insist on cleanliness, nor upon the
punctual regularity of feeding at stated
times. This injunction, if followed,
will do more for the preservation of
health in pigs than the administration oi
any specific after disease has decidedly
hown itself. Prairie Farmer.
A late Sacramento paper says : "The
Central and Pacific railroad company
have arransed to have 40.000 eucalyptus
trees set out along five hundred miles of
the right ot way of the company, ii
should not be understood that that is the
whole number of trees to be set out. It
is but the first installment, and is for
commencing the work. As there are
5.280 feet in a mile, if the trees are
fdanted twenty feet apart in longitudinal
ines and three rows deep in the fifty feet
right of way on each side of the track,
it will take nearly 800.000 trees for the
five hundred miles of valley where they
are to be cultivated.
"The object of this plant is to note
what effect the planting of these trees
will have upon the climate. It is the
theory that lartre numbers of them will

effect upon climate, as is well established,
and the intention now
is to see how far
I artificial means will be effective in restor- j
ing the balance believed to have been lost !
! by the clearing out of our forests, as
j well as the scattered groups of valley
trees. In this connection it is to be noted
that the directors ot the vtaou lempiars
home for orphans at Vallejo has now in
1 progress the work ot setting out three
thousand of the eucalyptus globulous up
on the grounds of the home, which will
make quite a iorest when the trees snail
le fairly grown. The very low price at
which these trees are to be obtained, a
nominal figure indeed, and the action of
the Central Pacihc railroad company.
has stimulated the inquiry anew why it
should not be an excellent stroke of
jtolicy for this city to secure at least
5,000 ot 6,000 of these trees at once, as
the time for transplanting is good, to be
idaced by the city or citizens who will
care for them until well rooted, in those
di.tricts of the city which are most liable

X Perfect Theater,
The American Architect gives the fol

' On each side of the stage are two
three-foot walls, seven feet apart. These
are stiffeneel by vaults running their
whole length, and forming passages, nine
in number, upon each side. These wall
support the iron stage roof, under which
is suspended an iron and brick ceiling.
A wire curtain, weighing three tons, and
counterpoised, is suspended above the
proscenium opening It is let down
every night and is seldom raised during
rehearsals. Its meshes are only three-

" Reservoirs in the "Vienna theater are
placed above the rear stage. In the in
spector's room gauges indicate the height
of water in the same, whilst other regis
ters show the temperature of thirty dif
ferent rooms in the building. Through
speaking tubes, telegraphs, pipes, etc., he

The reservoirs above mentioned Iced

ready described, also across the stage
bridges, under the stage, and to the store
rooms. These pipes are above ten inches,
below five inches, in diameter. At fre
quent intervals are stop cocks, to which
are attached flexible tubes with half
inch nozzles. In its passage, by the side
of the stage, are s.nall slits opening to
the stage and closed by iron doors.
Through these one hundred and fifty
openings half as many streams can be di

"Ten men are employed to watch this I
theater, and ot these eight are on duty

L.ife in London begins and ends late i
in the day. Ihe very crossing sweepers
do not turn out till ten o'clock, and no
newsboys rouse the sleeping echoes of
the streets at the unearthly hour of
eight. Everything encourages man to
lie in led late of a morning. If he get
up at nine lie will tumble over the house
maid's pail just outside the door, and
even the cluth will not be hiid for break

seem to lie fairly up and about till three
or four in the afternoon.
Towards six the streets are crowded,
and Burlington arc?de legins to put en

The little bear i a. .small but nio"t

that the little bear, like the larger one,
was so named because of any imagined
resemblenc to a bear. The original
constellation of the great bear waa much
older than the little tenr, and so many
different nations agreed in comparing the
groupe to & bear that there must have
been a real resemblance to that animal
in the constellation as first figured. Later,
when .-tar-maps came to tie arranged by
astronomers who had never seen bears,
they supposed the three bright stars
forming the handle of the dipper to rep
resent the tail ot the bear, though the
bear is not a long tailed animal. They
thus set three stars for the bear's tail,
ana the quad rangleof stars forming the dip
per for the bear's body. 1 1 was not formed

Admiral Smyth gives some particulars
about the two stars in the Gttle bear
called the "guardians of the pole."
"Recorde tells us," he says, "in the
Castle ef knowledge,' nearly three hun
dred years ago, that navigators used two
pointers in Ursa 'which many do call
the shafte, and others do name the
Guardas, after the Spanish tongue.
Richard Eden, in 1584, published his
'Arte of navigation,' and therein gave
rules for the 'starres,' airong which are
special directions for the two called the
guards, in the mouth of the 'home,' as
the figure was called." (The polestar
would mark the small end of the norne.)
"How often," says Hervey, in his
"Meditations," "have these stars beamed
bright intelligence on the sailor and con
ducted the keel to its destined haven I"
WOSBERS OF MODERS;S( IEXCE.
The perfect accuracy with which scientists
are enabled to deduce the most minute par
ticulars in their several departments, appears
almost miraculous if we view it in the light
of the early apes. Take for example the
electro-magnetic telegraph the greatest in
vention of the age. Is it not a mMrvelous
degree of accuracy which enables an opera
tor to exactly locate a fracture in a sub
marine cable nearly three thousand miles
long? Our venerable "clerk of the weather"
has become so thoroughly familiar with those
most wayward elements of nature that he cau
accurately predict their movements, lie can
sit in Washington nnd foretell what the
weather will be to-morrow in Floiida or New
York, as well as if several hundred miles
did not intervene between hica and the places
named. And so in all departments of mod
ern science, what is required is the fenowl- !
oge of certain signs. From these the scien- j
tists deduce accurate conclusions regardless j
of dit-tance. A few fost-ils sent to the expert j
i;eolot;ist enable him to accurately determine
J tne rock-formation from which they were :
iiiki-u. lie cin uescnoe ii to you as periecuy
ns if a cleft of it were lying on his table. So
a'so the chemi.-t can determine the constitti- I
lien of the situ a3 accurately as if that lu- I
liiicarv were not ninety-five million miles
from his laboratory. The sun tends certain i
si;;ns over the " infinitude of space " and the j
chemist classifies them bv pasin them j
through the spectroscope. Only ihe presence j
of certain Eubstanees could produce these j
solar siens. So also, in medical science, dis- ;
eases 'have certain unmistakabl signs, or
symptoms, and by reason of this fact,- Pr. j
Pierce, of the World's Dispensary, has been j
enabled to oricinate and perfect a system of
determining, with the greatest accuracy, the ,
nature of chronic diseases without Eeeins i
and personally examining his patient. He ;
has spared neither pains nor expense to ts- :
sociate with himself, as ihe Faculty of the J
World's Dispensary, a large number of med- ;
ieal gentlemen of rare attainments and skill
graduates from some of the most fnmous :
Medical Colleges aud Universities of both !
Europe and America. f!y aid of Dr. Pierce's 1
system of diagnosis, these physicians and ,
surgeonj annually treat, with the most grati- !
fyine success, many thousands of invalids
j without ever seeing them in person. In j
recognizing diseases wi.hout a personal ex- ;
amination of the patient they claim to pos ;
j sess no miraculous powers. They attain their
knowledge of the patient's disease by the j
prr.ctical application of well established
! principles of modern science to the practice I
.f medicine. And it is to the accuracy wiih I
: which this frvstem has endowed them that i
j they owe their almost world-wide reputation
for the skillful treatment of all lingering or :
i chronic aS'ections. This system of practice i
j aud the marvelous success which has been !
attained through it, Uernonstrnte the fact i
I that diseases display certain phenomena, I
which being subjected to srieDtifie analysis i
lor svnthesis, lurnislt abumlmt and unmis
takable data to guide the judgment of the
skillful practitioner aright in determining
the nature of diseased conditions. The
amplest resourcee for treating lingering or
chronic diseases, and the greatest kill, are
thus placed within the easy reach of every
invalid, however distant he or she may
reside from the physicians making 'he treat- l
ment of such affections a specialty. The
peculiarities of this scientific system of prae- i
tire are fully explained in the Appendix of i
