In ivstice to those who may suffer as I have uffred,azid as a srate- iui acKoowieagmtnt ox tne care J. nave reoetTod zrom the nse of the Oaticura Bmedias, I YOluatarily make the following statement : I have had Bait Khsnm on my body and on one lfg in a very aggravated form for eight years. No kind of tretm nt, or medicine, or doctors, during this time, did me any permanent good. My friends in Maldem ana eisewnere know tn&t i n&Te Deen a great sunerer. and that my conuitlen at tlotea has been each as to make me desoair of ever being able to find a cure, or eren a relief In fact, when I began the use of Cu Hara re, my limb wis so raw and tender that I could not Dear my weignt on is witnouc toe earn oracKing ana bleeding, and was obliged to go about on crutches. I commenced to nse the Cnticura in April, and at ence realised its beneficial effects. It gradually drew the inflammation and humor to the surface, and aa fast as it appeared, healed It. At times large quantities would come to the surface, causing bnrning heat, mlkmma tion, swelling, and itching, which, under the constant nse of Oaticura, would r-pidly subside and heal. Each time these outbreaks grew less and lees severe and fi nally disappeared, leaving me perfectly cared. I used tne uu ticura nve moiKna ana tooz tne .uesoivem most of the time, which were the only remedies I used. I think the Besolvent a very strengthening and purify ing medicine to taae m sucn extreme cases as mine, oecause tne aistaee is so weakening to tne system. Very gratefully yours, MBS. ASA R.

Editor New Orleans Picayune : Sir, Since tne fall of 1867, up to the laat three weeks, I hive been troub led with an eruption of the skin, which the doctors call by various names,but which is generally known by the name of Eczema or Salt Rheum. The principal place of attack was my hands, which at times, especially dur ing the winter time, were very sore. At times the disease threatened to Bpread from my hands and envelop my whole body. Doctors have been consulted in Philadelphia, Washington, and in this city, with no more success than a temporary relief. After considerable expense,and much pain and suffer ing, I had come to the conclusion that I would, as the saying goes, have to grin and bear it. About four weeks ago I read in the Picayune the ad vertisement of Caticura, for sale by our well-known druggist, Mr. Lyons, and resolved to try it. I pur chased a fifty-cent box, and before it was half used the dieeare had completely disappeared, and I feel certain that mine is a oeritanent cure. My object in sending yon this letter is to make known to othr sufferers the value ot Outicura, and thus ben efit, if ever so little, suffering humanity. Tours truly, P. P.

It will not be a grtat many yaars, if plans now formed are oarried ont, before the lcfla- enoe of railroads will be felt in the Holy Land, and travelers there will hear profane brake men wrestling with Bible names. The Pales tine Railroad Company was recently given a charter by the Massachusetts Legislature, The real work is to be done with the financial support of two large English banking houses, and the charter was obtained with the mini mum amount of capital and number of incor porators. There are in the company fifteen men, with each one share of stock at one hun dred dollars, and only eight of the fifteen live in Massachusetts just enough to come within the law. It is thought to be probable, however, that the enterprise will receive more ' support in this country than was at first expected, and in support of this opinion it is stated that within a few days a Boston capitalist has sub scribed for twenty-seven thonsand dollarb' worth of the stock. From an account of the plan published in the Boston Advertiser it ap pears that under the charter the proposed road will extend from Cairo in Egypt to Mosul on the river Tigris, with branches to Jerusalem, Jaffa; Nablus, Beirut, Aleppo, Iskenderoon and Erzeroum, if it should be judged best or necessary to build them; In detail the routs Is described as follows : Beginning at Cairo, the road runs northward on the Pelusiao branch of the Nile to Port Said, the northern end of the Suez canal. At this point connec tion will be possible with the lines of steamers running between the East and Europe. Turn ing eastward from Port Said, the road will pass over the level plain near the seashore, across the desolate tract between Egypt and Palestine. Soon after entering Palestine it goes through Gaza, Ezdud (the anoient Ash dod), and thence to Kamleh. At this place tho branches for Jaffa and Jerusalem will leave the main line, the Jerusalem branch asoending the valley of the Nahr Kubin and Wadi Snrar. It reaches the city from the north and west of the Gihon valley, and the station will be at or near the Damascus gate. Leaving Kamlsh.the main line runs north through the plain of Sharon to a point near the anoient Bethar, whence a branch is proposed to Nablus, the ancient Shechem. Continuing northerly from Bethar to the Abu Zabura, the road ascends that river valley and crosses the Oarmel range through the Megiddo pass. From Cairo to this point the maximum grade is twenty feet to a mile, and through the pass it is forty feet to a mile. From the base of the hill of Megiddo a branch is pro posed to run down the plain of Esdraelon, and thence northward along the shore through Acre and Sidon, and by the ruins, of Tyre to Beyrout. Iskenderoon lies north of Beyront at the northeast corner of the Mediterranean Sea, upon the gulf of the same name. The main line passes from Megiddo across the plain of Esdraelon, by the base of Mount Tabor, and along the west side of Lake Gen nesaret. It crosses the Jordan at or near Ja cob's bridge, and follows up the valley, and gradually climbs the Jebel Heish at a grade of sixty feet to a mile. Crossing the summit and descending the valley on the other side, it stretches across the plain to Damascus. Tbenoe it is projected to the Euphrates, to oonnect with the Euphrates Valley Railroad, which is about to be built by an English com pany." From the river it extends to Mosul, and willconnect therewith a proposed railroad from Diabekir and the Black Sea. Branches to Aleppo and Erz-roum will be constructed as soon as desired after the completion of the main line. It is the intention of the officers of the road to push its construction rapidly as soon as the necessary authority can be ob tained from the Turkish government. This authority is expected soon, through the exer tions of the projectors and the English and American ministers in Constantinople. The importance of such a railroad to Eng land is obvious. As the Advertiser says : "It will strengthen tho power of English arms, English customs and the English language. With the influence England now has over Tur key, with the island of Cyprus In the control of England, with a railroad straight into tho continent built by English money and man aged in English interests, the island kingdom would be more than ever a power in the East. Such a road as this will strengthen England in her defense against Bussia, whenever the con test comes between the enlarging boundaries of the dominion in India and the southward oreeping line of the Muscovite empire." In case of peace it will be of great benefit to the nations it connects, and in case of war it will give immense advantage to the power which controls it. It will also greatly quioken the civilization of the region through which it passes. EDITORIAL NOTES. The town of Derby suffers a great loss in the death of Samuel M. Gardner.

In another place on this page a correspond ent complains of the dangerous character of the Derby railroad crossing in Custom-House square. He does not state the case too strong ly. Only yesterday there was a narrow es cape from an accident at the place complain ed of. It is high time that those obliged to cross there were better protected. We agree with the Hartford Oourant in its declaration that there is one thing the Repub lican State convention should not do, and that la elect delegates to Chicago who do not represent the wishes of a majority of the con vention. The Oourant says on this - point : "If a majority favor one candidate it would be simply stultification to elect men to work and vote for another candidate. The -district delegates will of course represent the districts, but all the delegates at large should be elect ed by the entire convention, with a knowl edge as to the preferences of the men who are to be voted for. Any other course would leave the State as a whole without represen tation." Kemble and his copartners in the bribery of members of the Pennsylvania Legislature made a bad mistake in jumping their bail. Soma people were willing to believe that the crimes of which they were convicted was committed through ignorance, and among those refusing to accept that opinion there has been a large degree of sympathy for the men convicted. But sympathy and the plea of ignorance will find it equally hard to- ex cuse an act which shows a determination to escape the penalty of the law by a process so significant of guilt as that known as jump ing the bail. As fugitives from justice the men convicted will find official lenienoy much more unlikely than had the law followed its course. Byington reports that ex-Senator Barnum is credited with revealing, while in Washington recently, some of the plans of the Democratic party in this State. The Democrats of Con necticut are, according to the story, to put in nomination the very strongest possible State ticket. This includes ex-Governor Hubbard to again head their procession. A most de termined effort is then to be made to carry their State ticket and the Legislature. Special contributions and special work are to be con tributed. Not only seven, but seventy times seven "mules" will be bestowed. Whether Barnum has been leaking or not there is prob ably more truth than poetry in what he is re ported to have said. In order to carry this State next fall the Republicans will have to nominate the right men on the State ticket, and even then they will have no "walk-over." Coins; Alone.

COHMTJSICATIOIfS. A Very Daurerous Crossing-. To the: Editor of the Journal add Ootrorca: Pleas warn your readers, especially the women and children, who daily pass to and from the new depot, of the dangerous Derby railroad crossing on Custom-Houae square. Many times a day their oars pass and repass, sometimes backing with no means of warning the multitude that cross that thoroughfare exoept the locomotive bell and a solitary brakeman, who is generally stationed in the middle of the train. . At no place in the city is a flagman needed more and it is by the merest chance that accidents there have not been of frequent occurrence. A DaiiiX Eyb -Witness. Verr swet and fair and winsome IOoksd my laeaie, three years old, With har b'ne eyes bright with pleasure, And her curls ot sunny gold. She was goiog to wslk with mamma, flo her heart was full of glee ; For she liked of all her pleaaurea Best to take a walk with me. 8o ws started while the sunshine, Dnciog. flickering thro gh the trees. Traced the gronnd with wonurous shadows, Changing with tho varying breeze. And I reached a band to baby, Thinklug ihus her steps to guide, But the little f a.t all quickly Danced away from mamma's Bide. And the voles of my wee darling Took a tone of sweet command, t'Baby'U walk alone this morning, She don't want to hold jour hand." Half amued, half pained, I listened To the self-reliant tone Mother hearts oft echo when bab'ee WilUug giow to walk alone. But I would not olond her gladness, So she danced along alone Kyes alight, and cheeks like roses, -Hair tht, waving, golden shone. Soon the woodland path grew rougher; Passing aloods cburared the sun Frightened at the sadden dsrkness, Backward tamed my little one. Vanished now her self-reliance, Bvery trace of sweet command Mamma, baby's very tired, .Won't you please to hold her hand." For reply I raised my darling, Beld her close with loving arms. Thankful that I thus could Bhield her From her childish, vague alarms. And, as gently down I put her, Clasping close her hsnd in mine. Thought I how we larger children Often grieve a love divine. Jast ss my wee, lisping baby Could in sunshine walk alone, So we, till life's sun is hidden, And its pathway rougher grown, Think that we no help need borrow, Think no evil can betide Walk our way all self-snmcient, Will not seek Bis loving side. But when storm-clouds darkly gather O'er our pathway rough and stesp. When life's burdens press Ah ! heavy, And we wade thro' waters deep ; Find we then how insufficient To ourselves, alas ! are we ; And we look through gathering darkness Till our Father's hand we see. And the hand once proully aighted. Still He lovingly extends, Soothing us with precious premise That from dangers He defends. Oh I the love that never fsils us, That forgives our erring pride ; Wondrous love the Ft. her shows us Small are all things else beside. No more need we fear life's pathway, Since we clasp His guiding hand Trusting all to Him who leads us, ne Biiau rencu tne oetter ianu. New Haveo, Conn. J. M. A Woman in a Case of Panther. In a manaBerie which is kept at present in Philadelphia is a cage of Mexican panthers. In size they are about as large as a full-grown setter dog, though their whole appearance is of the cat order, having long claws, sharp teeth, and eyeballs whioh, in their ancer. gleam and quiver like livid fire. "These ani mals," says the lJniladelphia Times, "last Sat urday seemed worse than usual. They had been fighting among themselves nntil their heads and ears were bleeding, and upon the approaoh of any visitor near their cage they wouia spring against tns iron grating, -with gleaming eyes and exposed fangs, with a foroe that would shake the cage from top to bot tom, at the same time thrusting their olaws through in their efforts to olutoh the intrud ers and bring them within range of their teeth. Even the' keepers themselves, after they had prodded up the tigers and leopards and passed close to their cages in safety, made a detour when they came to the panthers, giv ing them a wide berth. Presently a young woman, dressed in bloomers and with her hair tightly done up on the top of her head, came along, with a stout whip in her hand. " 'bhe's going in among the panthers; she a training them,' said the keeper. "The girl went up close to the cage, whip in hand, and, with the assistance of the keep er who was her husband the panthers were driven back in one end of the cage, the man using a long stick, with the end of which he gave them some vigorous raps on the nose. After a great deal of nghting and scuttling among each other they were all gotten back in the end farthest from the cage door. The man then prooeeded to unfasten it. The young woman, who had been standing beside him with her whip in hand and a pleasant smile on her faoe, without a moment's hesita tion stepped up and the next moment was in side the cage. Tne moment she got in there was the most terrino screaming and fighting of any time yet. The panthers would spring over each other in their eagerness to spring upon her, and would spring half-way up the cage, but would get no further, being held back by fear. They would then spring upon one another and tear each other's ears and scratch and ficbt, this being apparently the only means that would satisfy their feroo-ity. Meantime tne woman stood perfectly still, holding her whip out and speaking to them in a soothing manner, as though she was pac ifying a favorite dog or cat. Gradually the screams and growls began to get lower and lower and the fighting among one another be gan to cease, still they kept growling and looking at her and showing their teeth and snapping now and then until she bad ad vanced a step. Then they began to growl again,and one of them sprang over the others and Rot nearest to her, but had no sooner alighted than he was pounoed upon by anoth er, and they again began to fight. Then the young woman with a bold step advanced a pace further and struck one of the animals with the butt end of the whip, at the same time scolding him. He sprang back to the end of the cage among the others, while the woman carelessly letting her whip fall, pro ceeded to soothe and caress the panther near est her, patting him on the top of the head and stroking him on the neck until his growls had almost subsided, and then sullenly allow ed himself to be petted, winking his eyes and mouthing like a cat. The other panthers meantime having grouped them selves together in the end of the cage looked on with sullen growls. If any advanced Bhe gave them a sharp rap on the head and order ed them to go back, and they obeyed. While she kept petting the one in question she never lost sight of the others, keeping her eyes on their every movement and being always pre pared to use the whip on the slightest provo cation. Sometimes three or four, as though jealous of the other, would spring forward and approach sullenly, as though inviting her to caress them, too. Then she would take one to each hand and pat and Btroke them un til they became paoified and quiet, and she seemed as much at home with them as though they were so many oats. But this pacific state of things would not last long. They seemed to be taking their caresses under pro test and to be ever on the brink of a revolt. This would be signalizd by a deep growl from some one of them, which would instantly communicate itself to the others, and the next instant there would be a quick spring and one of the animals would find himself pounoed upon by another, and they would claw and gnash each other until the young woman would raise her whip and give them some sharp blows, whioh would send them into the oorner and make them settle down for a little while. "What would be the oonsequenoe if she was to show any fear and retreat toward the door ?' asked one of the bystanders, who had been almost spellbound by the scene before him and had not found himself able to speak before. "'The oonsequenoe,'said the keeper,shaking his head, 'would be that every animal in that cage would spring upon her and tear her to Norwalk is trying to organize a military company, a HttiA rtamthtarof Mrs. Susan B.
