Reference is made to the extraordinary cure
of Pi ofessor Lawrence, Principal 01 the lu
stitutes of Elocution at New York and Phila
delphia. He says as follows :
" About ten years ago, while resulinir in
New Jerses'. I had a violent attack of chills
and fever. The chill would come on regular
Iv about ten o'clock, and continues for near
!y two hours, followed by a burning fever for
more than live Honrs, which no meuicine
would relieve ; and 1 became so weak that
could hardly walk across the room, and could
not ascend one flight of ttairs in less time
than ten minutes. .My life became a burden
10 me. I loathed every kind of food, ami
cverv kind of food, and even water tasted to
ine like copperas. I could get no refreshing
sleep either by uiirbt or t v day ; the inedi
tines prescribed for me by physicians gave
me no relict, ana 1 was last sinking into me
grave. One day a lady persuaded me to pur
chase a box Bellamy's Pills. 1 took three at
twelve o'clock noon, and three at night. Af
ter taking the two doses I felt better, and that
night, for the first time in three months,slept
lor fully eight hours. 'I he next morning 1
felt much better, and took three more pills.
As ten o'clock approached I prepared myself
for in v daily chill, but to my intense joy my
unwelcome visitor did not come; and after
eating a hearty dinner at one o'clock, I took
lliree more pills, aud ut night three more.
'I he next morning, after a delightful night's
res!, I arose at seven o'clock, feeling quite
xx ell ; and although still very weak, yet 1 was
able to enjoy my food, and whether eating or
drinking, everything tasted sweet and pleas
ant to me. lu about seven days' time I was
strong enough to walk lour miles, aud felt
perfectly cured. Ten years have elapsed
'Jsiisc then, and I have never had auothei at
iu k of Chills and Fever.
" P. LAWRENCE,
" New York Conservatory ot Music,
"5 p:ast Hth Street."
In conclusion, the proprietor has only to
late that he wiil guarantee to cure any ease
of Chills and Fever. No fee will ever in such
case be exacted. The patient is at liberty to
p ay or not. All that is desired is, thai he
xx id forward a certificate of his cure at au ear

le. Solomon, too, was soinethinjr of
a fogy. Wouieu were women, and
women they must remain to the
end of the chapter. A great pity,
he had often said, that it was so,
hut nature could not be turned out
of her old well worn channels by
education. Eve, he considered, a3
ha vino- been a vicious sort of little
body, bending poor Adam's nose
down close to the grindstone, and
there her daughters had relentless
ly held it through all the long years
since that first tragedy.
Solomon believed in progression,
lie thought that the sciences might
be better understood, that new dis
coveries were to he made; that the
Atlantic would be crossed in a bal
loon; but Solomon's radicalism did
not include the possibilities of the
woman. She was to he
what she had been from the bejiin-
ning. so ne noon-hooded at bis
daughters farming, not believing
that any good thing thing come
out of Nazareth.
It was an up hill road to those
five dainty daughters of Solomon
Brown's. But in one thing they
resembled their father. They were
obstinate, and when they heard his
prediction as to their failure, they
were unite determined not to fail.
They were up early and worked
late. Their strawberries were a
success. They gave employment toJ
a number oi girls in the village, m
gathering their small fruits, thus
recognizing the true policy, that
women must help each other. They
kept one hired man, and under his
instructions these young ladies
learned to turn a ready hand to all
of farm labor,
Old Solomon Brown's 'poo-hoos,'
grew less emphatic and he began
to speak with a sort of shamed-fa-ced
pride of 'Our girl's place.' Then
when the fame of these women far
mers had traveled far and people
came from a distance to inspect
personally their success, Solomon
began to feel proud in saying, 'Yes
sir, they are my girls.'
'Your girls are all bojs then'''
said one smiling, quoting Rip Van
'Just as good as boys,' said Sol
omon Br v."n, blushing at the re
traction of old sentiments. But
theories must fall before convictions,
and well filled wheat, fine potatoes,
good corn, etc., were more convin
cing to Solomon of his daughters'
worth, than volumes favoring the
'Subjection of Women.'
Solomon Brown's daughters still
hold Jacob Sloam's farm. Lucv,
the youngest, is married to Frank
Lawler, but instead of her going
home to him, as is the manner of
the world, he came to her.
Under the homestead laws a wo
man who is not at the head of a
family that is a widow cannot
pre-empt land. If this was not the
case, I do believe that one of Solo mon
Brown's girls would go west
and take a piece of land. As it is,
they are all going in the spring and
Solomon will enter one hundred and
sixty acres in his own name, which
in reality will belong to his daugh
ters, as it will be purchased with
the profits of their farming Jacob
Davy Crockett's Dream.
One day when it was so cold that
I was afraid to open my mouth, lest
1 should freeze my tongue, I took
my little dog named Grizzle and
cut out for Salt Itiver Lay to kill
soinethinjr for dinner. 1 got a cood
ways from home before 1 knowed
where I was, and as I had
swotted sorav, before I left the house
my hat froze fast to my head, and
I liked to have put my neck out of
joint in trying to pull it oft". .When
I sneezed the icicles cracked up and
down the inside of my nose, like
when you walk over a log in win
ter time. The varmints was so
scarce that I couldn't find one, and
so when I come to an old log hut
that had belonged to some squatter
that had been reformed out by the
nabors, I stood my rifle up agin the
door post and went in. I kindled
up a little fire and told Grizzle I was
going to take a nap. 1 piled up
heap of chestnut burrs for a pillow
and stritened myself out on the
ground, for 1 can curl closer than
a rattlesnake and lay straiter than
a log. I laid with the back of my
head against the hearth and my
eyes looking up the chimney so that
I could see when it was noon by the
sun, for Mrs. Crockett was always
rantankerous when I staid out over
time. I got to sleep before Grizzle
had done warning the eend of his
nose, and I had swallowed so much
cold wind that it lay hard on my
stomach, and as I laid gulping and
belching, the wind went out or me
and roared up the chimney like a
young whirlwind, so I had a pesky
dream, and kinder thought, 'til 1
waked up, that I was floating down
the Massassippy in a holler tree,
and I hadn't room to stir my legs
and arms no more they were wisted
together with young saplings.
NVhilelwas there and wont able
to help myself, a feller called Oak
Wing that lived about twenty miles
off, and that I had give a most al
mighty licking once, cum and look
in with his blind eye that I had
gouged out five years before, and 1
saw him looking in one end of the
and he axed me if
wanted to get out.
I telled him to
tie a rope to one of my legs and
draw me out as soon as Gid would
let hirn, and as much sooner as he
was a mind to. But he said he
wouldn't do that way, but he woul
ram me out with a pole. So he
took a long pole and rammed it
down agin my head as if he was
ramming down a cattridge m a can
non. This didn't make me budge
an inch but it pounded my head
down between my shoulders till I
looked like a turcle with his head
drawn in. This started my temper
a trifle and I ript and swore till the
breath boiled out of the end of the
log like steam out of a funnel pipe
of a steamboat. Jest then I vroke
of N. C.
i , . ... i
up and seed my wile pulling my leg i
for it was ever most sundown, and
she had come arter me. There was j
a lonj icicle hanginc to her nose.
and when she tried to kiss me, she
run it right into my eye. I telled
her my dreem, and sed I would have
revenge on Oak Wing for pounding
my head. She said it was all a
dreem and that Oak was not to
blame ; but I had a very different
idee of the matter, so 1 went and
talked to him, and telled him what
he had done to me in a dre.un and
it was settled that he should make
mc an apopogy in his next dream,
ond that would make us square, for
I don't like to be run upon when
I'm asleep any more than I do when
J 'm wake.
" My Dead Brother on Ice."
A well-dressed vouns man. a"
about twenty-eight years, florid
complexion, middle height, brown
side-whiskers, and presenting gen
erally quite a respectable appear
ance, has been going the rounds for
some time past, imposing upon the
credulity of merchants in the fol
lowing manner : He manages, in
a most systematic way to obtain an
introduction by some means to his
intended victim. Having thus
broke the ice, he engages in conver
sation with his new acquaintances,
and, by his conversational abilities,
manages to impress them with the
idea that he is on intimate terms
with their friends, lie then dis
appears from their presence for
about three days, but returns on the
afternoon of the fourth day, between
the hours of 4- and o in the after
noon. On entering he immediately
rushes up to the owner of the estabs
lishment and requests a few min
utes' private conversation, which
being granted, he unfolds the foh
lowing doleful tale : ' Mr. Smith,
oh, pardon me, sir ; hut I just re
ceived the following telegram from
Philadelphia (producing a forged
dispatch) informing me that my
brother's body has just arrived
from Charleston and that his body
is on ice at the Pennsylvania depot,
owing to the fact that the freight
charges were not prepaid. You see
his death is so unexpected that I
really don't like to go over to
Brooklyn to obtain the necessary
funds to defray the expenses from
mother for fear of shocking her
nervous system. Moreover, it is
after banking hours. May I re
quest that you will feel pleased to
advance a sufficient sum to pay my
expenses to Philadelphia and re
turn. It is only a matter of about
$10, arm I will hasten on my return
to refund the amount."
On several occasions he ha3 been
successful in obtaining the money.
Of course the gentlemen whose
charitable instincts and desire to
ielp a fellow being in distress
prompts him to advance the amount
lears the last of his charitable loan
oan when the borrower disappears
through the door. This young gen
tleman tried the game again
yesterday at the Lovejoy, in Park
low, but luckily lie retired discom
fited, and will be compelled to seek
elsewhere for sufficient money to
bring on his brother's dead body
now on ice. iNew lork Herald, j

Offer in the Land A Knot
that Puzzle the Frinee.
In a number of the JJoersen
Cvurier of Berlin, an incident is re
lated of Prince Bismark's domestic
life which is uncommonly interest
ing. Most people who read tho
news papers have heard of the great
Chancellor's daughter. The young
lady, though not beautiful, is ami
able and accomplished, and accus
tomed to the homage of the high
society in which she moves. With
her father she 1ms been a great
favorite ever since she grew up.
When in Berlin he has been wont
to spend with her whatever leisure
moments he could snatch from his
laborious occupations, and in the
country his idle hours have been
usually passed in her society. The
Prince observed with concern that
his daughter repelled ail proposals
of marriage made to her. Though
wooed by (he most eligible suitors,
among the heirs of the richest fam
ilies, members of the most ancient
nobility, gentlemen filling the high
est officia I positions, even a prince,
the ytung lady declined them all.
Alter brooding for a long time
over the possible reasons ot his
daughter's conduct, the Chancellor,
believing at last that he had fath
omed the secret of her severity,
opened his heart to her on tho
subject. He told her he felt sure
that she must have become pro
foundly attached to some person
inferior to herself in position and
wealth. lie then begged her to
mention the name of the man to
whom she had given
her heart, ae
he, her father, was rich enough
and powerful enough to change the
condition which might see to render;
her lover an ineligible match. With
flowing tears the young lady con-,
fessed that she did cherish such an
affectkn as her father suspected, an
affection that was returned, but
that her lover wa3 a simple licuten-i
ant in the army.
Tho next day the lieutenant ap
peared in the presence of the father.
The Chancellor hardly gave him
time to speake before saying : iS I
know why it seems to you impossi
ble to become my son-in-law ; not
withstanding the difference of social
position, your wish shall be accom
plished. Though I do not know
you, the love of my daughter is to
me suflicient guarantee of your
But instead of the joyful thanks
which the Prince naturally expect
ed, he received a reply of the fol
lowing tenor : " I thank you for
your infinite goodness, hut this
union is impossible. I belong to
an old Catholic family. I cannot
take home as my wife the daughter
of him whom my family regard as
an enemy of the Church, whom I
myself am almost compelled to look
upon as such."
The officer then sadly took his
departure leaving tho Chancellor
utterly confounded. Having sum
moned his daughter, the Chancellor
told her that the officer wholly re
fused her hand and that she must

than ever, replied: "He i3 too
honorable to deny his religious
faith. I will not ask of him such
a sacrifice, and if he desires it I

his religion, to render our irfTirriage
possible. " The father saw his
child become more inconsolable from
day to day, and at length he was
thrown into a state oi iearlul excite

ence. So things stand at pres
The Truth "Well-Expressed.
Tho address of the White League
of Louisiana, says :
We would show him that where
the white man rules, the negro is
peaceful and happy ; that where the
negro rules, the negro is starved
and oppressed ; that where our race
bears sway, his race is mentally,
morally, and materially progressing;
that where his race governs, there
is increasing ignorance, distress and
brutality. But it is worse than
idle to reason with those people.
They have become maddened by
the hatred and conceit of race and
it has become our duty to become
our duty to save them and to save
ourselves irom the fatal prochvi"
ties of their stupid extravagance and
reckiess vanity, by arraying our
selves in the name of white civili
zation, resuming that just and le
gitimate superiority in the admin
istration of our State affairs to
which wo arc entitled by superior
responsibility, superior numbers,
and superior intelligence ; and while
we declare it is our purpose and
fixed determination not to interfere
in any manner with the legal rights
of the colored race, or any other
race, we are determined to maintain
our own legal right3 by all the
means that may become necessary
for that purpose, and to preserve
them at till hazards.
