A few Sabbaths since, Eda was allowed to
go to Sabbath School—her first time—and
there she learned the startlin': intelligence
that she was made of dust. Little Eda’s
min 1 was fully impressed with the impor
tance of the great truth, which was evinced
Ity her fervent reference to the subject in the
shape of questions unanswerable. One
morning, however, she propounded n stun
ner, which brought down the house. Intent
ly watching her mother sweeping, as if to
learn the art she must finally practice, saying
not a word, her eyes rested on the little heap
of dirt accumulated hy her mother’s broom.
Just as tbe dust was being swept into the
street, the little philosopher broke forth with,
“ ’Ms! ’ma 1 why don’t you save the dust to
make some more little girls?”
A Chicago paper thinks it umiuuus that,
just as Chic.mo, the city, is being swept by
tires, the City of Chicago, ocean steamer, gets
on the rocks and is lost; and the “ City of
Chicago,” sleeping car of the Pullman line,
also the “ Silver Palace Chicago,” of the
Allentown line is burned up. The hope is
expressed that these partial and various
scorohings may not herald the coming of that
more complete purification by fire which the
city so greatly needs.

Euler upon the |icrformanee of his official duties
for the current year. He would call particular at
tention to the following section of the Revenue
Law :
“If any person shall willfully make, or give,
under oath or affirmation, a false list of his, or her,
or their taxable properly, or a false list of taxable
property under his, her, or their control, such per
son shall be deemed guilty of perjury, and upon
conviction thereof, shall be punished therefor, as
is by law provided for the punishment of perjury ;
and any property wiNfully concealed, removed,
transferred, or misrepresented, by the owner or any
agent thereof, to evade taxation, shall upon dis
covery, be assessed at ten times the amount of tax
fur that year, which would otherwise have been
assessed upon it; and fifty per cent, of the amount
of such additional tax, when sollected, shall be paid
to the person or persons who shall furnish the
information which reveals the properly so conceal
cd, transferred, removed or misrepresented, and the
remaining fifty per cent., after deducting the usual
per cent age for collection, shall be paid into the
Treasury, for the benefit of the Common School
fund of tho State.’’
Attention is also directed to the following section
of the Act of IStio-fi, relating to Shasta county :
“ The Assessor of said county is authorized and
it is hereby made bis duly to collect all the poll or

A Case ot Gleet and Stricture.
Dn. H6hertt—Dear Sir: I feci my health so
fully restored, that, in common gratitude, 1 believe
I should make some written acknowledgment for
your valuable services—particularly so as your fee
was small for the work performed. I arrived in
thi* city from tbo East about one year ago, and
was then suffering from an old ease of Gleet, com
plicated with stricture. Being a stranger in this
city, and believing those doctors who gave such
positive assurances of success were necessarily the
best (some of whom have a large number of titles,)
I placed myself in their charge and continued un
der their treatment until 1 had lost nearly all hope
aud a considerable sum of money. I wish to say
now that you arc the sixth doctor I have em
ployed, and the only one who has ever done me
any service. My Gleet is wholly cured, the stric
ture is all removed, and my general health is bet
ter than it has been fur years. lu conclusion I
would say to the many unfortunates who require
medical advice, if you have any doubt as to whom
you should employ, ask Dr. Doherty for my address
and call and see me, (I keep store in thi* city).—
My experience may save you many dollars. I
would also add that, in the early stage of my dis
ease, I used a large amount of the preparations
advertised as an infallible cure for Gonorrhoea,
Gleet, etc., but never derived any benefit from
them. I am, Doctor, very truly yours, L—ll—.

Seminal Weakness.—A sworn to Certificate
of most remarkable cure of Spermatorrhoea :
A desire to benefit humanity, and a feeling of
gratitude to Dr. W. K. DOHERTY, alone induces
me to make this statement. For many years I had
been afflicted with that fearful disease known as
** Spermatorrhoea,” or seminal weakness, the result
of scif-ahuse, but till 1855 experienced but little
trouble or inconvenience j in that year, however, I
had seminal weakness to a fearful extent, which
was soon followed by the most alarming symp
toms, as weakness of the back and limbs, pain in
the bead, dimness of vision, nervousness and gen
eral debility. My mind, too, was affected to such
an extent as to seriously impair ray memory, my
ideas were confused and spirits depressed. [ was
averse to society, had evil forebodings and self
distrust, and was entirely unfitted for any of the
duties of life. From 1855 to the summer of 1803,
I employed the very best medical talont I could
find, and spent several hundred dollars, but in no
instance obtained more than temporary relief. I
had about concluded there was no relief for me in
this world, hut reading Dr. Doherty’s advertisement
I thought I should call and sec him, as ho charged
nothing for consultation. I had an interview with
the Doctor at his office, in Sacramento street, aud
his fee for treatment was so reasonable, I deter
mined to try him, though I did not expect much
benefit from his treatment. On the sth day of
December last, I placed myself under his care; in
one week I found myself very much improved : and
now, after five weeks treatment, I feel myself tho
roughly cured of all my troubles and in the enjoy
ment of the best of health. Hoping that my expe
rience may be of benefit toothers similarly afflicted
I subscribe myself JAMES JOHNSTON.

To Females.
When a female is in trouble or afflicted with dis
ease, as weakness of the hack and limbs, pain in
the head, dimness of sight, loss of muscular power,
palpitation of the heart, irritability, nervousness,
extreme urinary difficulties, derangement of digest
ive functions, general debility, vaginitis, all dis
eases ot the womb, hysteria, sterility, and all other
diseases peculiar to females, she should go or write
at once to the celebrated female doctor, W. K. Do
herty, at his Medical Institute, and consult him
about her troubles and disease. The Doctor is
effecting more cures than any other physician in
the State of California. Let no false delicacy pre
vent you, but apply immediately and save yourself
from painful suffering and premature death. The
Doctor’s offices are so arranged that he can be con
sulted without fear of observation.
To Correspondents.
Patients residing in any part of the State, how
ever distant, who may desire the opinion and ad
vice of Dr. Doherty on their respective cases, and
who think proper to submit a written statement of
such, in preference to holding a personal inter
view, are respectfully assured that their communi
cations will be held most sacred. Dr. Doherty
takes this opportunity of observing, that all letters
are only opened and replied to by himself, and the
latter as promptly as possible. If the case be fully
and candidly described, personal communication
will be superseded, as instructions for diet, regi
men and the general treatment of the case itself
(including the remedies) will be forwarded without
delay, and in such a manner as to convey no idea
of the purport of the letter or parcel so transmitted.
Consultation, by letter or otherwise, FREE.—
Permanent cure guaranteed or no pay.

DR. DOHERTY has just published an impor
tant pamphlet embodying his own views and
experiences in relation to Impotence or Virility ;

This little work contains information of the

The above rules, established
by Di\ J, C. Young in IS JO,
anti which have done so much
to secure the reputation of this
Institute, are still adhered to,
affording those in need of
medical aid, the certainty of
cure and the utmost confidence .
There is nothing of so great
importance to the sick as to
know where to find a i>hysi
dan whose skill and humanity
give assurance of proper and
delicate treatment • The Doc
tor would respectfully call the
attention of those of both sexes
who are suffering or in trouble
to the invariable success that
has marked the career of the
Institute in the seventeen years
of its existence.
It is unnecessary in this con
nection to enumerate all the
complaints treated at the In
stitute, but the Doctor feels it
his duty to call especial atten
tion to that terrible scourge,
That is sapping with its in
sidiousness the very life of its
victims; in the treatment and
cure of which the Institute has
earned so enviable a reputa
I am aware that by dwelling upon so uninviting
a subject us the decay of manly vigor tnro:. h the
less of the vital primiplc of life, the ignoran. ui.iy
asperse my motives; but the desire to point out o
those who suffer, languish and decav, the true
cause of their affliction, is too great an sreentive to
be forced into abeyance. How extended t:>•,* *erri
ble disease of Seminal Weakness is, no one bu . t c
practical specialist who devotes his lira 3 to its
treatment can tell, hut its presence can be detected
by the most inexperienced by noting tbs following
symptoms: Weakness of the back and limbs ; lan
guishing feelings : loss of muscular power : nerv
ousness; irritability; coil lector hands, accompa
nied by bet head ; symptoms of consumption :
short breath; flushings of the face: aversion to
society: confusion of the mind : loss of memory :
nightly emissions; colorless, slight discharges upon
the least excitement; palpitation of the heart;
irregular appetite ; variable temper, etc.
YOUNG MAN, if you experience ary of tbc
various symptoms enumerated* above, pans® to
consider. The present is the golden m 'incut in
which you may secure health and happiness. You
may feel strong now,but if you have ever practiced
the vice of self-abuse even in the SJ.TCTHtEWr DKtfiiEE,
you have the seeds of weakness in your system,
and their undermining influence will, sooner or
later, dash the fair edifice of your strength to the
ground, leaving yon a helpless, abject being. It
is not a disease that declares itself at once. Therein
lies its great dan.wr : for while the patient is being
treated for some affection of the Heart, Lungs,
Brain, or Digestive functions, he sinks into":: gen
eral debility that soon adds him to the list of the
victims of the terrible disorder, Seminal weakness.
See in the bent form and Liuguidiiir- steps, the
poor victim of the fascinating vice! Mark the
course of the destructive complaint in the hollow
cheek and dull eye !
Drowsiness is one of the premonitory symptoms.
At first it is easily shaken off, but it grows eventu
ally into a great disinclination l<> pursue his regular
business. The mind becomes apprehensive, and
restless nights succeed d vs of depression.
Marriage is sought by a natural impulse as a
hope ot relief. This is an error of the first magni

should result in offspring, they .are pun}', distorted,
dccrcpid and degenerate. This is applicable to
both sexes, whether mar.icd or cingle, and to all
times of life.
Do not delay if you feel any symptoms of the
terrible complaint, or if your acts have been such
as to lead to them,bat by instant application secure
to yourself the only hope of future health and hap
piness! The Doctor uses no mercury or other dele
terious drugs—cures, when taken in time, always
guaranteed and full and proper vigor restored.
The afflicted arc assured of every confidence.
Persons Affected with Venereal.
During the seventeen years since the establish
ment of the Institute, the n imbcr of cases of vene
real that have been treated, show a record unsur
passed by any hospital' in the world, and the suc
cess that has invariably marked the course of
treatment, without Mercury or other Deletc
; rlous Drugs, shows conclusively the use of them
to be no.t only uncalled fof, but actually danger
ous, for it is a thoroughly c.-iabli-hed medical
principle that those poisonous drugs, by entering
the blood, ruin the constitution and destroy life.
The Doctor effects a cure in repeal cages, in a few
days, and finds no difficulty in curing those of long
duration, without submitting the patient to such
treatment as will draw upon him the slightest sus
picion, or oblige him to neglect bis bttfiittqgjt whe
ther in-doors or without. The diet D'-od' not he
changed. Cures always guaranteed or no pay
Impoitaut to Females*
When a female is in trouble or afflicted with dis
ease, and requires medical or surgical assistance,
the enquiry should be. Where is there a physician
who is fully competent to administer relief, and
and whose respectable 1 landing in society recom
mends him to the conffdcn-c u t_e community?
The Doctor, understanding how imperatively neces
sary these requirements are, feels called upon to
interpose, and by calling the attention of the afflict
ed to the fact that he has been a PROFESSOR OF
twenty years, and is fully qualified to administer
in all cases, both medically and surgically, not in a
superficial manner, but in as thorough a manner as
years of study and practice—both in hospitals and
private families—can make, to save them from the
hands of the unqualified, unscrupulous and design
ing. Therefore, families can rely upon him as upon
a father. All in affliction can find in him one who
can feel and sympathize with and befriend them in
trouble—one in whose secrecy the utmost confidence
can be placed. CONSULTATION (by Letter or
otherwise) FREE.
To CoßrtF.SPOxnnxxs.—Persons, either male or
female, residing in the interior, are often deterred
from consulting the Dr. because They cannot spare
the time or incur the expense of a visit to the city.
To such he would say that a plain statement of the

Horrible Diseases*
How many thousands of persons, Will male and
female, arc there who arc sulfici ing out a miserable
existence from the effects of seefet ftulujgenee, or
from virus absorbed into the system. Look at
their pallid, emaciated and disfigured faces and
their broken-down constitutions, disqualifying
them for the happiness of marriage or the enjoy
ment of life. In this horrid situation thousands
sutler until death closes the scene. Let parent*,
guardians and friends attend to those who are suf
fering with any of these horrible, life-destroying
maladies—see that they are cared for and cured
before it is too late. Send them immediately to
Dr. Gibbon, a physician who has made private
diseases his special study for years, and who is
certain to cure the most inveterate eases, without
mercury or any injurious drugs. It is important
to those afflicted, or to those who are interested in
the welfare of their friends, to he careful of the
many pretended doctors who infest all cities, pub
lishing their skill *n curing all diseases in a few
days, imposing upon the public hy using the names
ot eminent physicians from Europe and other
places. Be therefore careful and make strict
inquiry or you may fall into the hands of those
Seminal Weakness.
Seminal emissions, the consequence of sclT
abuse. This vice, or depraved sexual indulgence,
practiced by the youth of both sexes to an al
most unlimited extent, producing, with unerring
certainty, the fid owing train of morbid symptomt,
unless combatted by scientific medical measures,
viz: Sallow countenance, dark spots under the
eyes, pain in the head, ringing in the cars, noise
like the rustling of leave - and'rattling of chariots,
uneasiness about the loins, weakness of the limbs
contused vision, blunted intellect, loss of confidence,
diffidence in approaching strangers, a dislike to
form new acquaintances, a disposition to shun so
ciety, loss of memory, hectic flushes, pimples and
various eruptions about the face, furred tongue,
feted breath, coughs, consumption, night sweats,
monomania and frequent insanity. If relief is not
obtained the sufferer should apply immediately,
either in person or by letter, and have a cure ef
fected hy his now and scientific mode of treating
this disease, which never fails of effecting a quick
and radical cure. Dr. G. will give One Hundred
Dollars to any person who will prove satisfactoril y
to him that he was cured of this complaint hy

Caution to the Unfortunate.
Beware of the San Francisco quacks and pre
tenders who, with bogus sworn-to certificates, dupe
the unwary. Some of the self-styled doctors,
whose names arc to be found in the daily and
weekly newspapers of Fan Francisco and other
places, are tradesmen and became too lazy to work
at their trades. Some are tinsmiths, shoemakers,
newspaper carriers, intelligence office keepers, Ac.
Look over the San Francisco directory and you
will not find their Medical Institutions in it. Look
at the Directory for 1802 and 1803. The only way
to avoid imposition is to make inquiry—it will cost
you nothing, and may save you many regrets : for,
as advertising physicians in eight eases out often
are bogus, there is no safety in trusting any of
them until you know who and what they are. Dr.
Gibbon does not deceive people by exhibiting bogus
titles, certificates, pretended patients’ letters, Ac.
Dr. Gibbon will satisfy persons who may call at
his office of his ability to treat diseases that he
proposes to cure.

of Nervous and Physical Debility, the results of
injurious habits acquired in youth, which usually
terminate in impotence or sterility, and permanent
ly induce all the concomitants of old age. Whcrd
a secret infirmity exists involving the happiness of
a life and that of others, reason and morality dic
tate the nece.-.-ity of its removal; for it is a fad
that premature decline of the vigor of manhoed,
matrimonial unhappiness, compulsory single life,
etc , have their sources in causes, the germ of which
is planted in early life, and the bitter fruit tasted
long afterwards : patients laboring under this com
plaint will complain of one or more of the following
symptoms; Nocturnal Emissions, Pains in the
Back and Hoad, Weakness of Memory and Sight,
Discharge from the Urethra on going to stool or
making water, the Intellectual Faculties are
Weakened, Loss of Memory ensues. Ideas are
clouded, and there is a disinclination to attend to
business, or even to reading, writing or the society
of friends, etc. The patient will probably complain
of Dizziness, Vertigo, and that Sight nnd Hearing
are weakened and sleep disturbed by dreams, mel
ancholy, sighing, palpitations, faiutings, coughs
and slow fever; while some have external rheu
matic pains and numbness of the body ; some of
the most common symptous are pimples in the face
and aching in different parts of the body.
Patients suffering from this disease should apply
immediately to DR. PERRAULT, either in person
or by letter, as he will guarantee a cure of Seminal
Emissions and Impotence in six or eight weeks.
