however, praise the amazing energy
which ne city has displayed in play
ing the Phoenix, and the surprising
elegance of the new blocks which
have sprung up over the blackened
ruins of the burnt district. Theju-'
bilee was a good advertisement of
Chicago's enterprise, and in this re
spect was a great success. If Chicago
has some faults, she atones for them
well by many splendid virtues.

v-Rcddy: the Blacksmith has not
made up his mind to spend the sum
mer in the country. He has not fi
nally resolved how many people he
will allow to remain in the city. He
cleaned out a railroad car in New
Jerser the other day. There was
some resistance until people found
out who he was, when of course they
submitted. He is growing a little
blase of late it is said. Murder and
burglary are palling upon him, and
he is supposed to be evolving from
the depths of his immoral conscious
ness some new form of crime which
may be flavored with a spice of diffi
culty or danger. "We have some two
thousand policemen, some dozens of
judges and a good deal of legal ma
chinery at work in this metropolis
says the New York Tribune, but these
are all powerless before this shabby
little red-headed rumseller. He re

of a respectable citizen named Bow
man, the twain carrying off with
them a considerable amount of mon

Bowman. The injured husband fol

charge of larceny and took him back
to his starting point, where an exam
ination resulted in the establishment
of the fact that the wife was the
guilty party, and "Wilcox was dis
charged, llie money was long ago
spent, and now Wilcox has brought
suit against Bowman for false impris
onment, and is likely to recover
heavy damages. Bowman says he
don't mind the loss of the wife, but
he is a little sorry about the money.
A correspondent of the Alaska
Herald gives further information
from the gold mines near Sitka, from
which the following is an excract;
William E. Dunlap, Frank Mahoney
and E. Doyle made the first discovery
a year ago at the head of Silver Bay,
about twelve miles from Sitka, but
not knowing its value, they neglected
to work it, and it was relocated by a
soldier named Ilaley and two other
persons, who have organized a com
pany. A short 'time after this anoth
er ledge was cLiscovercd by Doyle
but the snow prevented prospecting.
As soon as the weather became favor
able, the second discovery was vis
ited, and found to be a beautiful ledge
about six feet in width, and situated
on the same stream as the former, at
a distance, of one mile above. From
this ledge rock has been taken show
ing considerable gold. At first it was
feared that the ledge would not pro
duce the color after striking it below
the surface; but now that it has been
tunneled ten feet, gold shows itself
more freely than ever. A company
known as the Alaska Gold Mining
Company has been formed and theJ
ledge as being worked. Great ex
citement prevails at Sitka over re
turns from the assay office, at Portland
which show that tho rock .sent from
the Haley Ledge is worth $276 .per
ton in' gold. The Haley mine is to
,be,workedBOwin good earnest, and
pros2cting parties are preparingfto

construction and oquipment of its road across
the Continont After careful investigation,
wo recommend these bonds as a well secured
and unusually proiitublo investment- They
havooO vcars to run: principal and interest
are payable in gold; the interest (seven and
three-tenths per cent) is equal now to about
tyi per cent, in currency. Tho coupon and
registered bond'' can be exchanged for each
other, at tho pleasure of tho holdor. Gold
checks for the semi-annual interest on tho
registered bonds are mailed to the post office
address of the owner. .
These sccmities have tho following elements
of strength and safety: Thoy are tho obliga
tion of a strong corporation; thoy are also a
mortgago on the Jtoad, it right of way, equip

not earning. In addition to this usually suf
ficient security, thoro is pledged for th6 pay
ment of tho principal and interest a Grant of
Land, averaging about ',000 Acres per Milo
for tho entire length of tho lioad. At tho
averago price per acre at which other Land
Grants have thus far been sold, this real ostate
security will yield more than $101,000 por

tive now prepared and kept on hand at my
officercorftor first and Main streets, no door
from First, is a suro cure or preventive for
that disease! To history of this medicino
can not bettor bo cxrlained by mcr than by
inserting the following somewhat condensed
letters. , SAMUEL CORWI. Projkietor
S vk Fr vxcisro, July 2, 1S72.
My dear old friend, Samuel Corwin 1 have
no doubt but-vou will be much surorised on
receiving tliis letter, but, perhaps, not more so,
or moro gratified, than I was to hear from
you. Tho manner in which 1 heard from you,
and learned df your whereabouts, is this:
happened to bo-looking over an Oregon nows
paper and noticed your name, as lloprcsonta
tive elect, from Tillamook county. The thrill
of pleasure which 1 experienced on Teading, ,u
indescribable. Tho many acts of kindness
which 1 received at 3"our hands long years ago
havo novor beon forgotten, notwithstanding
our corrospondenco has been broken for 17
years. Well, Sam, I won't attempt to give
you moro than tho outlines of what has tran
spired with mo sinco wo last corresponded.
So many incidents of the past, in which you
and I wore, connected, ciowd upon my mind
that I cannot think or write of mysolf. Does
your mind ever revert to tho past, when we
first mothow you took mo in as a partner,
whon thoso who ought to have boon my best
friends throw otf on mo how we got snowed
in and had to livo on potatoos straight for six
wooks how good that gruloy meat tasted
what a disgraceful retreat wo made from our
Eoor innocent Jack, when wo thought wo were
oioged by a gmzley. "Well, Sam, thoso
events of 18V2fo-iuently furnish subjoct mat
tor for mv thouerhts. and. as 1 am writiner to
you, crowd upon my mind, but I will dismiss
them for the present to give place to that which
will, perhaps, bo of greater interest to you.
1 pocketed eleven thousand dollars out of tho
" Doop Claim" you gave mo in Maraposa, and
started for homo in Juno, ISon. 1 invested
four thousand dollars in renl estate in this
city, and left it in caro of McLane, our old
cabin mate. My property liore has yielded
mo a handsome income, and quadrupled in
value. I wont into business iaNew York city,
in which I was very successful sold out two
years ago. since which time I have been trav
eling through the European countries. You
know 1 liseu to havo a weakness for traveling;
well, it has been gratified to my heart's con
tont. While in Franco I was taken with the
small-pbx. Tho lady of the inn told mo that 1
was fortunato to take tho disease at that place,
as thoro was an old small-pox doctor near by
who novor failed to euro, no mattor how bad
tho disease; and suro onough, I began to re
cover within four hours after commencing to
tako tho medicine, and in twenty-four hours
1 folt quite .well. I was so much elated with
tho magical effects of the medicino that I was
1 seo from Oregon papers that you havo the
disease among you. Tho enclosed package
contains the formula and sufficient material
for family uso. I havo cured all the caos
that I havo como in contract with, and find it
an infallible cure and preventive. When you
answer this, I will forward sufficient of tho
material to make you a fortune, as I havo am
ple, and rest assured I reciprocato past favors.
I will closo for the present and await anxi
ously your answor. Direct to San Francisco,
as I will remain hero about two months.
Yours etc., ISAAC HlvtHARDSON.
"When I received this medicine, there boing
no small-pox in the Stato of Oregon, I sent
packagos to a number of places in California
and other States, to bo properly tested, al
though my own confidonco in its virtue was
onmnlotolv established by tho sourco from
which 1 obtained it. Tho following lottors
were duly recoived from the partios to whom I
sent tost packages of tho medicine:
Sacrvmf.nto, Cal , Doc, 27, 1S72.
Samuel Corwin, Nehalem, Oregon Doar
Sir: I havo tho pleasuro of communicating to
you the fact I had an opportunity at last of
Iesting tho efficiency of your preparation for
tho cure of small-pox. Mr. A. Keysor, a friend
of mine, was taken with tho small-pox Dec
ember 18 th. I learned tho fact about six
o'clock on tho evening of tho nth, and started
immediately for tho residence of Mr. K., sit
uated about fourteen miles from here, towards
Cache Crook, Yolo county. I got to K.'s place
just twenty minutos beforo twelve o'clock, and
commenced giving tho medicino precisely at
twelve o'clock. Continued, to givo tho medi
cino ovory hour until twelve o'clock next ovo
ning, having given twenty-nino doses j and,
without further aid. K. recovered, and 13 now
as woll as over, without any viiblo signs of
ever having had tho disease AH of us who
were exposed, took of tho modicine as a pre
ventive, and I havo no doubt, by so doing,
wero kept from getting tho diseaso.

Friend Corwin Yo-r small-pox euro proved
quito a God-send to this community lately. 1
had tho satisfaction of curing three of our
townsmen of tho small-pox lately. Now, I
am out of medicine, and I want you to send
mo about a thousand bottles,- or send an agent
down hero. You would do woll to have, an
agent in cvorylowrr in California. 1 am get
ting up a statement, with tho signature of the
parties, knowing the facts, and will send it
soon. Accept our thanks, etc., A

No person should bo without this medicino,
as tho diseaso is now in various parts of tho
country, and may bo among us any day. It is
