rhe Society of Old nroo-lynltea Will Ite
Bboosxtm, June 4 The Society of Old
Brooklynites have set on foot n movement to
erect a suitable monument to the memory of
the soldiers, sailors and citizens who perished
during the revolutionary war in tho British
prison ships. When the British and Hessian
forces, in 1770, landed at Oravescnd bay and
marched to Brooklyn, there were several
transport ships left at Gravesend until Wash-

lngton and his troops had been compelled to
cross the East river in his retreat. These
ships were moored In the waters then
covering a part of what Is now
the Brooklyn navy yard. They were then
used for prisons for such persons as were
captured In arms against tho king. They
were crammed with prisoners to such an ex
tent that large numbers died, being unable to
endure tho severe confinement. It was inti
mated at the close of the war that between
11,000 and 12,000 had died, and were buried
in the Long Island sound.
The washing of the waves soon bored thelr
bones, and from ITS3, the close of the war,
for many years, they were cast about by the
tides and bleached In the sun on a shore that
was then but little occupied. John Jackson
at last, in 1792, purchased a farm near br.
and collecting the bones, arranged to give
them a decent burial. He induced the Tam
many society to take the matter up, and of
fered a site for the tomb near the navy yard.
The society lent a hand, and the corner stone
was laid In 1S0& All the bones, filling
twenty hogsheads, were placed in the tomb.
They, were put into thirteen mammoth
coffins and borne to a more suitable resting
place than the shores of Long Island.
Tho ground being honcycombed.by streets
surrounding the tomb was left high in
the air and fell to pieces. It is said that
die site was even sold for taxes. It passed
jito tho hands of Benjamin Romaine, who
lad been interested in its erection. He re
Dalred tho tomb and kept it in order till 1S44,
when be died.
Ten years latT tbe Martyrs' Monument as
sociation was formed by citizens of New
York and Brooklyn. An effort to build a
monument was delayed . by another war, but
in IS73 the bones were taken up and laid in
twenty-two new coClns and reinterred in
Fort Greene park,the pork commissioners per
mitting the construction of a granite vault.
Now It is proposed to erect over these revolu
tionary rehcsamonumentlCa feet high. It will
be thirty-six feet square at the base, with
walls nine feet in thickness, narrowing until
tney are only two feet through at the ton.
The sides will bo lighted by windows and the
top surmounted by a bronze dome on which
will stand a huge gilded eagle, the emblem of
the victory won in tho contest wherein the
lives of tbe thousands of prisoners were sac
rificed. A stairway and an elevator will
lead to the top, where an outlook will be pro
vided beneath tho dome, which will rest on
Corinthian columns. Congress has been

Terrible Softerlng from Skin lliseaseg.
I have been a terrible sufferer foryears from
diseases of the skin and blood, and bare been
obliged to shun public places by reason of my
dltllKurlng humors. Have had the best of
physicians and spent hundreds of dollars,
but not no relief until I used the Cutlcura
Remedies, which have cured me, and left ray
skin as clear and my blood as pure as a child's.

No single disease has entailed more suffer
ing or hastened the breaking up of the consti
tution than Catarrh. Tbe sense of smell, of
taste, of sight, of hearing, the human voice,
the mind. one or more, and sometimes all.
yield to its destructive Influence. The poison
it distributes tbrougbout the system attacks
every vital force, and breaks up tbe most
robust of constitutions, ignored, because but
little understood, by most physicians, tmpo
tently assailed by quacks and charlatans,
those suffering from it have little hope to be
relieved of it this side of tbe grave. It la
time. then, that the popular treatment of this
terrible disease by remedies within the reach
stall passed Into hands at once competent
and trustworthy. The new and hitherto un
tried method adopted by Dr. banford la tbe
preparation of his Radical Cure has won the
hearty approval of thousands. t Is Instan
taneous lu affording relief In all head colds,
sneezing, snuffling and obstructed breathing,
and rapidly removes the most oppressive
symptoms, clearing tbe head, sweetening the
breath, restoring the senses of smell, taste
and hearing, and neutralizing tbe constitu
tional tendency of the disease towards the
lungs, liver aud kidneys.

No Universal Remedy
has yet been discovered ; hut, as at least
four-fifths of human dissases have their
aourc In Impure Blood, a medidna
which restores that fluid from a ds
praved to a healthy condition comes as
near being a universal cur as any that
can be produced. Ayars SarsaparUla
affects tha blood in each stag of It
formation, and is, therefore, adapted to
a greater variety of complaint than any
other known medicine.
Boils and Carbuncles,
which defy ordinary treatment, yisld to
Ayar's SarsaparUla attar a comparative
ly brief triaL
Mx. C. K. Hurray, of Charlottesville,
Vs., writes that for ysars he was af
flicted with boil which caused him
much suffering. These wars succeeded
by carbuncles, of. which ha had ssveral
at one tima. Ha then began tha us of
Ayar's SarsaparUla, and after taking
three bottle, tha carbuncle disap
peared, and for six years ha ha not had
van a plmpls.
That Insidious Uses, Scrofula, la
tha fruitful causa of lnnumsrabl com
plaints, Consumption being only on of
many equally fataL Zruptions, ulcars,
sore eyes, glandular awtllings, weak
and waaUd muscles, a capricious appa
tlte, and the like, ara pretty rare indi
cation of a fcrofulou taint In tha
system. Many otherwise beautiful facea
ara disfigured by pimples, eruptions,
and unsightly blotches, which arise
from impure blood, showing the need of
Ayar's SarsaparUla to remedy the viL
All sufferers from blood disorder
should give Ayer's SarsaparUla a fair
trial, avoiding all powders, ointment,
and washes, and especially cheap and
worthless compounds, which not only
fail to effect a cure, but more frequently
aggravate and confirm the disease they
ar fraudulently advertised to remedy.
