Having a desire, If possible, to beueni the afflicted,
I append the following certificate:
About the 1st of last August I waa taken with
dry, hacking cough, which kept growing worse until
about the middle of last January, such a violent
cough set in all at once that It seemed at every mo
ment it would rack me almost to pieces. I had t
various remedies, but wlibont any durable relief:
there did not neeut to be any action In my bowels,
my llvor was torpid also. I and my friends had gives
up all hopes of my recovery; and one in particular,
who bail t wo son. die of quick consniuption, said
I waa following them speedily. At length, being
duce" to a very low stato of health, I was induced
try Professor Wlllcox's Electropathlo treatment,
uud, strango to say, to my great joy and aatisfactios
1 experience! reuui rrom tne nrsi application,
cough looec'K.l, aud I began to tbnm up masses
thick, foaniv nuiciia: my appetite wse a great
better; my loue Is and liver were aroused to healths
action; my nlrlit-sweata ceased, and in ten applicat
ions I was considered cured. I gained in flash about
two pounds pr vaek. It Is nowa little overa month
lnoe I received the last treatmont, and sufficient
time has eluiw. d to ksow that the cure la permanent.

Louis Napoleon assented to the proposal of
a Congress for the discussion or tne Italian
?uestion, was rather ominous than otherwise
or tho peace of Europe. If a monarch,
whose every aot for the last six months has
unmistakably pointod toward war, all at once
turns around, and jumps at a proposal seem
ingly calculated to preserve tne peaoe, then
our first conclusion la that there are things
behind the scenes whioh, if they were known,
would take away the semblanoe or Inconsist
ency from his oourse of action. This has
been the case with regard to the European
Congress. What at the first glance seemed to
look like an attempt to preserve ths peace,
now turns out to be a new pretext for gaining
time to complete the preparations for war. It
is but recently that theCongiss was proposed.
