TAYLOR, 8u Senator ot XVXattacnusetts). Messrs. Weeks & potter : Gentlemen, To say that I am grateful is only a poor expression of my feelings, but it is the best word I can use, for I feel It in every sense of the word. I have been a great sufferer with skin diseases for the last twelve (12) years. My head and face being oovred with sores, I could not rest with the burning heat and itching of the parts affected and was confined to my house for weeks at a time. My disease has been calld Eczema, of a most aggravated type, by many physioians, but I doubt if erer fully un- uojBfcwu uj any oi toem. At was more use m uuixiuiiiav- tion of several skin humors. I have spent much mon ey seeking a cure, and in 1867 1 went to Europe, and conujxea some ox tne nest p&ys-cians in Ajonaon. i re ceived temporary relief onlv.for in the spring it would break out again as bad as ever. When I came back to Boston. I was t ld by many friends that Dr. (whose reputation for the cure of those diseases was of the highest order) could cure me. I waited on the doctor ; he prescribed for me. I followed his advice for six months, and I can safely say, without any Im provement. I tried other physicians, and among them Dr. , of Vast Boston, and Dr. , of city proper, but all to no purpes.. They did me no good ; thir remedies were so ineffectual that at no time did Z feel that a cure would result from them. I have swallowed five hundred" arsenic pills, 5.200 grains, and taken bottle after bottle of internal reme- aies, oesides ail tne external applications l nave used, but the effect was the same. I becto-e satisfied that I could not be cured, but might be kept from getting worse. Now, about torPB months ago, Mr. Meehan, a gentle man well known to Boston people, called my attention to your Outicura, and promised wonderful results if I would only make a trial. He told cos of bis own expe rience with it, and so persevered on me that I went with him to a drag store and bought two large boxes of Outicura, and some Outicura op, and commenced to use it according to the directions. There was so much humor lodged within the skin, that as soon as I commence i the use of cutienra it came to the surface and festered, until vast quantities had come out and greatly intensified my sufferings for about two weeks. But I did not mind this, as I felt that I was going to get rid of the humr when I saw it coming to the sur face in such la'ge quantities. After the first two or three weeks cse of this remedy, I was greatly enoour acred by a gradual lessening oi the inflammation of i number of painful sores. I carefully, faithfully, and cheerfully fotlowed the directions to the letter, feeliug each week nearer a cure, until at the present moment, after three months use of Cuticura, and twelve years of as constant suffering as was ever endured, lean say that I am cured, and p ton ounce my case the moot re markable on record, t have been so elated with my success that I have stopped men on the street who were afflicted, and told tnem to gt the Cuticura and it would cure them. This is why 1 am so grateful to you, xor x neneve it to oe tne oest ana greatest aiscov sry of the age, and that it will cure all who are suffer ing with these diseases. T may add that I took no in ternal medicine but the Outicura Resolvent. WILLIAM TAYLOR. Boston, August 22, 1878. Cuticura Remedies.

Ths condition of affairs in Russia continues to grow mora and mora melancholy, looked at from any point of view. The Nihilists have professed to be working in the interests of the people and to secure for them a government under whioh they could hare more freedom, The resalt of their efforts appears in the im perial ukase just issued. The Czar says : "Being fhmly determined to put an end to the repeated attempts of criminals to under mine the order of the State and society, a su prems executive commission is established in St. Petersburg for the protection of order." General Melikoff is appointed to the head of the commission, and the appointment of its other members has been or is to be made on General Melikoff's suggestion, by imperial or dinance. The head of the commission has, moreover, the right to summon npon the commission all whose presence he may con sider useful In order to give a united char acter to the action of all authorities, the head of the commission, setting aside the right of ths commander-in-chief of St. Petersburg, has direct control over all political trials held in the capital, in the military district of St. Petersburg and throughout the empire. All local authorities, governors-general and town commandants are placed nnder the jurisdic tion of the head of the commission, and all employes 'in the various departments are bound to afford him their entire co-operation. The head of the commission" is at liberty to adopt any means which may appear to him desirable for the protection of order in the empire, and the orders he may issue are to be unconditionally obeyed. Anything more dea potio than this could hardly be desired by the worst enemy of the Russian people. The Nihilists have not only succeeded in making the burdens of the people harder to bear, but they have made it impossible for the Czar to do anything but crush out the con spiracy, which he will undoubtedly do if he is not killed. They have also, by their crimes, deprived their cause of the sympathy and sup port which were indispensable to its life and triumph. In an elaborate article on Nihilism the Cologne Gazette says on this point : The Russian peasant, although he detests his sooial superiors, and is nasily ezoited to fury against the officials who render his very existence a burden to him, can never be per suaded to conspire against his Emperor. So it came to pass that some of the Nihilist agents got heartily thrashed by the mou jiks, while others were unceremoniously laid hold of and handed over to the authorities. Since April 14 the Nihilists havo been undermining their own ground, for no decent Russian feels any sympathy or compassion for regicides. The Russian people are strongly addioted to coquetting with socialistic ideas ; but its eyes have been opened to a great many fallacies within the last twelve months. . The power and prestige of the Nihilists have suffered considerably by their recent failures, and by the whole-hog measures of the several mili tary Governors-General to whom the Czar has committed the task of suppressing the in surrectionary movement. Their ranks have been thinned by innumerable arrests, and moreover a split has occurred in their con trolling organization. Their own leaders are beginning to perceive that nothing of any great importance can be brought about in Russia by mere brute force, and that Nihilism is practically a lost cause. Even before Solovieff attempted the Czar's life disputes had broken out between the leading social revolutionists, some of whom were resolved to put the Emperor out of the way, while oth ers wished his life to be spared. The former faotion acted on its own responsibility when it commissioned Solovieff to carry out its pro gramme ; for the Semlja i Wolja, the organ of the Moderate party, repudiated any con nection with the men of April 14." The atrocities of Russian despotism are not palliated or excused by the fierce and bloody deeds of the Nihilists. But those deeds and the reign of terror whioh accompanies them are calculated to defeat their own object. They have done it in Fianoe, in Spain and in other countries, and they seem likely to do it in Russia. Nihilism, as at present practiced there, can never conquer, and is in reality the enemy ofthe people, whatever it may promise them. Some, indeed, think the Nihilists are but the tools of reactionary absolutists. How ever this may be, they are evidently power ful hindrance to progress. General Grant's withdrawal or failure nqminated on the first ballot. to be If soma painters who painted the Tay bridge last summer tell the truth, the Scotch ministers who declared that the fall of the bridge was a judgment will have something to explain. These painters have testified that when at work on the bridge they saw numer ous bolt holes empty ; that they found bolts in holes where there should have been rivets, and found rivets without heads and bars loosened and nuts unscrewed ; that one of the supporting columns of the high girders which, was oraoked from top to bottom was held to gather with four hoop bands ; that sometimes the oscillation of the bridge was so great they feared it would fall. The evidence has natu rally created considerable sensation, but its value oannot be estimated until the railway inspectors are heard on the subjeot. We are sorry to learn, as we do from the Christian Union of London, that Mrs. Victoria " Woodhall" is ooming back to this country after she has published her views on marriage for the instruetfou Of the English people. This is the way the Christian Union talks about her : "That a woman who has devoted her whole life to doing angel's work should have been so maligned and persecuted, even up to the gates of justice, where alone she re ceived a verdict of blameless, is one of those marvels whioh the pages of history only can explain, and which show that all those who have fought for a good oause, from saints and martyrs downwards, have had to pass through their Gethsemane of mental suffering too ex quisite for human utterance. She has passed through her Gethsemane, and when she re turns to her native land her people will vie with each other to make reparation for the cruel injuries they have done to the noblest minded and most self-saorificing of women whose only fault was that she loved them too well." The Christian Union had better send a reporter over the water with Mrs. "Wood hall" so that it can have full and authentic accounts of the "vieing." EDITORIAL X0TES. Many who broke the Sabbath Day by try ing to put "15" in the right place quieted conscience by the plea that it was a work of necessity. General Joe Shelby, of Missouri, says, In a recant letter : "No man is at more ease than I to say I am a follower of Jeff Davis. While secession may have been wrong, we don't ad mit it. It proved an error by force of arms." Give him a plaoe in the army. John Brown Smith, the Belchertown (Mass.) "martyr," who refused to pay his poll tax on the ground that he is an "independent sovereignty," and has been in jail for a num ber of months, is now at liberty his friends having paid his tax with the un ierstandicg that the town will npt sue him for his board while in jail. Aooording to his principles Smith should not have accepted any such de grading compromise, but it is diffionlt to see how be could have avoided it. If there is any meeting in this world of sin and lost umbrellas and canes to whioh a man can safely carry an umbrella or a cane, it would seem that a ."Holiness meeting" held in a private house would be the one. But the trail of the serpent ia over, them all, as those who have been attending meetings of advocates of the "higher life" doctrine at a house in New York have discovered. The brethren have lately missed their canes and umbrellas, and setting a watch discovered the thief. They are going to pray for him.

PIsATT. . iMdfcw , In reference to Mr. Blaine's chances for the presidents! nomination it is pointed out that in 1876 he reeeived the support of many dele gates from the Southern States. In 1880 he is not likely to receive muoh support from that section. In 1876, too, Mr. Blaine had a solid delegation from Illinois, but the chances are that the Illinois delegation this year will be for General Grant. His only obanoe of se curing the nomination" seem, to depend on The bill to be prepared by the Senate Com mittee on Indian Affairs will mark a long step forward in the treatment of the Indians by the Government. The plan outlined by the oommittee inolndes the permanent localization of the Indians by allotting homesteads to them, with the provision that the lands so al lotted shall be absolutely inalienable during a period of twenty-five years; the extension over the Indians of the general civil and criminal laws of the United States, or of the respective States and Territories within whose borders they are located, and the continuation of a cer tain degree of assistance to them by the Gov ernment in the line of progress until they be come self-sustaining by means of agricultural and pastoral oooupations. It is not proposed by the oommittee to transfer the control of the Indians to the War department, but the bill will largely divest the Interior department of discretionary powtr in regard to the Indians by plaoing them individually under the con trol of the country's general laws. The pro visions of the bill are not to apply to the five civilized tribes of the Indian Territory. This plan meets the approval of most of those who have interested themselves in the Indians' behalf. The debate upon the bill for the relief cf General Fitz John Porter is expected to begin in the Senate to-day. Senator Randolph, who has charge of the bill, intends to press it to a vote without unnecessary delay. General Porter has been in Washington much of the time this winter, and his health is extremely poor. Senator Randolph was asked if he had heard the story reoently published that was told by Rev. G. D. Ayers, of Bridgeport, in this State, to the effect that one night he saw General Porter in conversation with thrre rebel generals, one of whom was Robert E. Lee. "Yes, I have read it," replied Governor Randolph. "Nothing could be more ridicu lous ; it is sheer fiction. I wish somebody would allude to it during the approaching de bate; I would not be long in disposing of it." Referring to General Getty, one of the officers who sat upon the recent oourt, Governor Ran dolph said that he had a short time since re ceived from him what in his opinion was the most manly letter he had ever read. It was written in acknowledgment of a note from the Senator accompanying four bound volumes containing the evidence and arguments heard by the court in the case. In that letter Gen eral Getty said that he felt as one who ought to ask pardon for having done General Porter the cruel wrong of having for seven teen years believed him a traitor to his couc-try. Among the other evidenoes of progress in Japan is a completely organized geological sarvey, with a full staff of native surveyors, under an Amerioan chief, Mr. B. S. Lyman. The first Report of Progress ot this survey, for 1878 and 1879, has just been published, and contains some aoourate and valuable in formation on the mineral wealth of the coun try. Mr. Lyman reckons that the coal fields of Western Japan oontain about six hundred and twenty million tons, and if one-third be de ducted for the working, there will remain four hundred million tons, representing a val ue at the coast of one thousand million dol lars. Iooonsiderable as this is in comparison with the large and rich coal fields of other lands, it is quite equal in value to all the metal produots together, exoept iron. The oopper Of the workable mines scarcely reaches the value of seven hundred and fifty million dol lars ; the eight or ten gold and silver mines, whioh were formerly worked and may be so again, may, including the lead, antimony, and tin mines, the workability of whioh is doubt ful, be valued at more than two hundred and fifty million dollars. On the other hand, the value of the iron amounts to at least two hun dred and fifty thousand million dollars. The relative importance of the mineral products may be represented by the following num bers : Iron, 1,000 ; coal, 4 ; copper, 3 ; all other metals (chiefly gold and silver), 1. The action of the Postoffice department in suspending the operations of the lottery order, o far as it relates to M. A. Dauphin ot the Louisiana lottery, until after the case shall have been decided by the Supreme Court of the United States, unless it is satisfactorily ex plained, will not strengthen publio confidence in the department. In this order the depart ment makes an admission of weakness not al together consistent with the vigor and per sistency whioh has characterized the prosecu tion of the lotteries. The admission is that the department is not satisfied from the evi dence before it that Dauphin is engaged in a soheme or devioe for obtaining money through the mail by means of false and fraudulent pretenses, representations and promises. Sinos proceedings against the lottery compa nies were begun the Louisiana Lottery Com -pany, whioh is the wealthiest conoera of the kind in the country, has had a powerful lobby in Washington, and the Louisiana delegation in Congress has shown an unwonted interest in the proceedings. Prominent members of Congress were engaged to defend the inter ests of the company in oourt. But notwith standing all this the department gained a substantial victory in the (Supreme Court of the distriot, whioh tribunal approved the ac tion of the department against the lotteries. It would be interesting to know why, after be ing strengthened in its position by the decis ion of the oourt, the Postoffioe department has suspended its order so far as it relates to M. A."Dauphin. . Can the lottery agents haYe had any influence in the department ? A man will mash his fingers into a jelly while cracking nuts for the hired girl, but let his wife ask him to tack down the parlor carpet, and there comes a series of articula tion that was never known to harmonize with a oamp meeting to any great extent.

To the Editor of the Jotjbhai. and Courier : If you will pardon the versatility of your correspondent I will write you a letter to-day altogether different from anything sent you before. It is particularly about the Rev. Dr. John E. Todd and his immediate work in the Church of the Redeemer.

Black Kyes. A Peculiar Profession How Injured Optics are Fixed up "as Good as New." From the San Francisco Chronicle. It is not an extraordinary event in the life of the average man to beoome, by some of the numerous accidents whioh are constantly occurring, the un envied possessor of a diecol -ored optic. It ofttimes happens that the un desired acquisition of this chameleon like characteristic of one's eyes is superinduced by a misapprehension of one s strength or bis knowledge of the manly art of self-defense. The perversity with which door hinges swing their incumbrance ajar, after the sun's rays and the lights of night have disappeared, and the total absence of any regular system as to the velocity and direction assumed by flying chips, have no doubt caused many "an unfor giving eye and a disinheriting countenance." To remove this stain of battle, or to whatever exterior causes the "dark and revengeful eye" may owe its origin, has for a long number of years oooupied the attention and scienoe of the medical profession. Nature has often de luded suffering and disfigured man with what the uninitiated have fondly believed to be effioaoious remedies. The molluscous bivalve has often strained its elastic ligaments and destroyed its palata ble qualities in vain endeavors to remove the rapidly congealing blood under many a swel ling eye. The ootylaid worm has oft, with its triangular mouth, made a stillate incision on a bruised and rapidly darkening organ, and there remained until its symmetry of form vanished with the usefulness of its mission. But it has remained for the deft fingers of man to do all that the medical profession and animal king 10m have failed to achieve, for now, so remunerating has the science of eye painting beoome, that some half a dozen art ists located in this oity are slowly but surely treading the path to wealth and winning the laurel of the philanthropist. It was the for tune of a member of the Chronicle staff to call not to solicit professional service upon one of these useful members of society, from whom he gleaned the following infor mation : Artist Ob, yes, I paint a great many black eyes. Times are a little dull now, sinoe the holidays have passed, but they will brighten as soon as the pionio season commences. I tell you, that is our harvest ; fifteen or twenty black eyes after every Sunday excursion. Reporter What are your charges ? Artist Well, if it's not a very bad eye, we don't charge more than fifty cents ; we gen erally get a dollar and a half for painting both eyes ; occasionally a swell gives us two and a half. Rep. How and with what ingredients is the operation performed? Artist Oh, that is our secret, and it ain't muoh of aseoret, either. We just take some oil and rub it around the eye until the skin becomes soft, for it is originally hard and feverish after receiving a (hump hard enough to blacken it. We then take some paint and experiment on their cheek or the back of their hand until we get the right color of their complexion, and then with a finger for a bruBb, you see. won't work into the pores of the skin we paint the eye until no one oan see whether it's black or not. ' Rep. Will the paint withstand the effect of water ? Artist After it gets well hardened, one may wipe his face with a damp towel, but it won't do to use warm water ; or, if a fellow has lots of crow feet in the corners of his eyes, it will cause the paint to craok. I had an Englishman come here one day, just after his arrival from Australia. - He was mistaken on the wharf for "the man that looked like him," and was struck in the eye. Of course it was a mistake; but he got a black eye all the same, and, after I had finished the job, he ' went over to a bathing establishment and took a hot bath, and that washed all my coloring off and left the other fellow's there, so I had to paint his eye again. He said to me : "This ia a of a country ; a man gets 'it in ths heye as soon as 'e puts 'is foot on the blawsted wharf." I don't think ha liked Amerioan ways. Excuses, did you say ? Well, I should speak of it. One man will say he ran against the door ; another had a chip fly up and strike him in the eye ; another falls down, and oc casionally one tells you he had a fight, but generally it was "only skylarking with a fellow."
