UghQuli; fcom'W',KJk city, begs leave to give notice that yielding to the pressure of many earnest and repeated solid tations to extend to the afflicted in this vicin ity the benefit of his extensive experience and skill, has taken rooms at Xo. 35 College Street, Where hereafter he can be consulted on Monday, Tuesday, Wednes day and Thursday of each week, as follows ; On Monday from 10 a. m. to 8 p. m. On Tuesday from 8 to 10 a. m. On Wednesday from 3:30 t 8 p. m. On Thursday from 8 a. m. to 3 p. m. Prepared to give his personal attention to the treatment and cure of Deafness, Catarrh, and Diseases of the Throat, Lungs and Ner vous System. For upward of twenty-five years Dr. Light- hill has been at the head of an extensive met ropolitan practice, devoted exclusively to the relief and core of those important ailments, and it is with pardonable pride that he refers to the extraordinary success which attended his efforts. Bis recent discoveries are of the highest practical importance, rendering treat ment so effectual that relief is experienced at once, and permanent cures are often effected in the most stubborn and aggravated cases ; and it is one of the happy features of his practice that the applications cause neither pain nor distress, and can be readily admin-' istered to the most -timid or nervous person. A candid opinion will invariably be given as to the possibilities of a cure, and no case will be accepted for treatment which does not pre sent a reasonable chance for smocess. In evidence of the success of his practice, Dr. Lighthill takes pleasure in submitting the following testimonials. A mass of similar credentials may be seen at his office. From the Rev. D. J. Clark. Pastor Congregational Charth, But Ha ven, Conn. It affords me great pleasure to add my tes timony to that of others in favor of Dr. Lighthill's success in the cure of catarrh. Bis treatment of my wife has proved so ben eficial that I cheerfully recommend him to the confidence of the afflicted. The catarrh in the case of my wife was of long standing and in its worst form, against which many remedies had been tried in vain. The very first treatment applied by Dr. Lighthill per manently removed some of the most trouble some features and the results ever since have been of the most gratifying character. Our people may congratulate themselves on hav ing at their command the services of a physi cian so skillful as Dr. Lighthill in the treat ment of that troublesome disease, catarrh. - D. 3. CLARK. B rom Col. D. A. Rood, Proprietor of the United States Hotel, Hartford, Conn. Bartford, Feb. 11, 1880. Dr. KB. Lighthill: Dear Sir Prompted by a feeling of justice to you and a sense of duty to the public, I take this method of expressing my grateful appreciation of the able and skillful manner in which you treated my wife for Catarrh. When I placed her under yonr professional care she suffered so severely that she could scarcely obtain any rest at night, but your first application afforded decided relief and your subsequent treatment has proved a per fect success. In the course of my experience I have seen a good deal of physicians and medical practice, but I must confess that your method of treatment for Catarrh is superior to anything that has yet come under my ob servation, and in fact is so rational and effec tive that it must commend itself at onoe to every unprejudiced mind. Tours truly, D. A. BOOD. THE HIBSO.1 KIVEK WNHKIa, The great railway tunnel under the Thames river, at London, 1,600 feet long, is justly considered a very remarkable piece of engi neering work, but the tunnel now in process of construction under the Hudson river will leave the Thames tunnel far behind, for it will be 5,500 feet long. This tunnel was be gun from the New Jersey aide under authori ty of a law of that State without waiting for the sanction of the New York Legislature, which, however, will not long be wanting, for a bill authorizing it has already passed the Sen ate of that State and has encountered no serious opposition in its early stages in the House. Upon its final passage the site of the New York terminus will be seleoted and op erations upon the eastern, jend of the tunnel wHlTe "begun. Its completion is expected in about three years. The necessary capital ($10,000,000) has already been Becured, and the work has so far been carried to a consid erable distance nnder the bed of the river. The process of making tunnels is much more effective now than it was when Brunei met with so many difficulties and discourage ments in constructing the Thames tunnel, and the workers in the Hudson river tunnel make rapid progress. At the foot of Fif teenth, street, Jersey City, a shaft has been sunk, 30 feet in diameter, 60 feet deep and lined with brickwork four feet thick. The diggers have already got about 175 feet from this shaft, and at last accounts three feet of finished tunnel a day was made. The digging so far has been easy, and the mixture of blue clay and sand is puddled with water as it is removed and forced out by the pressure of air through a six-inch pipe. As the New York side of the Hudson is ap proached, however, a solid bed of rock will confront the excavators. An original feature of the work upon this tunnel is the use of compressed air to keep out water and help uphold the earth. An air-lock closes the mouth of the tunnel, and a pressure of from 17 to 20 pounds to the square inch is main tained inside the gates. With some precau tion in making the change from the outside air laborers find no difficulty in breathing and working under this increase of the ordinary atmospheric pressure ; the electric light illu mines with noonday brightness their subter ranean tasks, and the telephone Berves for communication with the managers above ground. Foot by foot as the work is ad vanced the tunnel is protectively enclosed with bolted sheets of thick boiler iron, making a huge iron cylinder ; this in turn is lined completely around with a hard brick wall two feet in thickness, presenting a substantial arch capable of withstanding a great pressure at the sides as well as upon top. Three gangs of forty men each labor eight hours, so that the work proceeds day and night without interruption. The tunnel now building is only one-half of what is to make the completed work, the design is to have two tunnels side by side under the river which will be carried into one large tunnel at the shore ends. When the great work is completed it is estl mated that four hundred trains a day can pass through it. The different railroad lines terminating in Jersey City will, it is supposed, make common use of the tunnel on some such plan as that by which the several roads now use the Grand Central depot, each paying pro rata, according to a scheme to be agreed upon with the tunnel company. The terminus on the New Jersey shore will be about half a mile from the water, and that on the New York side has'not been fully fixed on, though there is a plan to have it on the west side of the city, below Bleecker street, where it is proposed to take two whole blocks for a station for all the roads which approach the city from the west and south, which will thus land their passengers in the very center of the city, avoiding all the delays and incon veniences that are now incident to the ferry crossing. It is proposed also to continue the tunnel to the postoffice, so' that postal cars may be received and despatch' d there, and a branch to the Grand Central depot at Forty- second street is also contemplated, by which direct connection will be made with all the roads entering the city from the north and east, and a continuation of the tunnel under the East river to Brooklyn will complete the scheme as it is now outlined, and connect both New York and Long Island with the main land. The gain to commerce and travel by such a system will be immense. EDITORIAL 50TES. From Mr. Richard Case, of Canton, . Conn. For the past twenty years I was afflicted with Catarrh, which affected my throat to such an extent as to make my life a -misery. I would wake up at night with a sense of suf focation, as though some one was strangling me, expecting every moment to be my last. My suffering was so severe that I was afraid to go to bed, and often did not dare to. Ten years ago my hearing became also impaired from the effects of catarrh and gradually grew so bad that of late it was quite difficult for me to hear. Two months ago I placed myself under Dr. Lighthill's care, and there- suit of his treatment has been truly wonder ful. The trouble in my throat is completely removed, I sleep and breathe as comfortably as a baby, my hearing is restored, and my health ' has so much im proved that I feel like a new man. In fact such a change for the better has been wrought in my case that I thank God daily from the bottom of my heart for bringing Dr. Lighthill to Hartford and for directing me to him. I am 64 years of age and have lived in Bartford county nearly all my life, and if the blessings and prayers of an old man are of any avail, the happiness and pros perity of Dr. T.igntnill is assured. BIG BAUD CASE. Canton, Conn., Feb. 25, 1880. CUBE Of Mr. W. OF DEA NESS. Cowles, of Norfolk, - : - Conn. -Six years ago 1 became hard of tearing, and ever since then the difficulty increased so that It annoyed me very much, and obliged me to listen closely in order to get along. . In this condition I placed myself nnder the treatment and care of Dr. Lighthill, who suc ceeded in restoring me to perfect hearing, and thereby earned my lifelong gratitude. W. J. COWLES. Norfolk, Conn., Feb. 18, 1880. - The liberal subscription by the Chinese in Hong Kong for the sufferers by the Irish famine will do for a Pagan revenge - on Denis Kearney and his followers of the Irish race. As was expected would be the case, the President has decided to appoint a Southern man Postmaster General. .Horace Maynard, of Tennessee, now Minister to Constantinople, is the one selected. Mr. D. G. Croley of New York, who has some reputation as a prophet, and who in 1876 predicted that the contest would be between Hayes and Tilden, prophesies that the opposing candidates this year will be Sherman and Field. which send semi-weekly gifts of flowers throughout the season, and in some of the places are organized bands of children who go on excursions on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons after the flowers, to be in readi ness for distribution on Mondays and Thurs days. ' From now until October this work will go on. Hospitals, work rooms and the prisons will be visited, as well as many private individuals whose needs make them the peculiar objects of this sweet mission work. The local flower mission referred to In another column should be well supported: Rev. Myron Adams, pastor of Plymouth Congregational church in Rochester, New York, is at least no hypocrite. Last Sunday evening he selected for his text "Let love be without dissimulation, "and boldly denounced the idea of hell as the doctrine of the devil, and took the position of Canon Farrar, to wit : "Here I declare and call God to wit ness that if the popular idea of hell were true I should be willing to renounce an im mortality of happiness, if thereby I could save a single soul. I can conceive of no happy immortality while millions of my f elloav creatures, some of - whom I had dearly loved, "wefe at the same time writhing in agony, and without hope." Bob Ingersoll was saying much the same thing to a large audience in New York city the same evening. What will be done with Mr. Adams remains to be seen. It is said that the principal members of his congregation stand by him. The London Times prints a list of the honors which it was Lord Beaconsfield's good fortune to have to bestow during his six years' tenure of office. Most important of all were the peerages, which may be summed up thus : He created one marquis, eight earls, one viscount and twenty-four barons, three of the last named being only life peerages. In addition to these he gave to two Scotch earls English baronies, and called to the upper house three eldest sons of peers. The baronetcies conferred by him number twenty nine. Two garters were at his disposal, one of which was given to the Marquis of Salisbury, and the other he took for himself. The order of the Thistle was bestowed upon seven Scotch noblemen, and the order of St. Patrick upon three Irish peers. Nine grand crosses of the order of the Bath were given by him, and twenty-two knight commander Bhips. Nineteen lord lieutenancies of English counties were filled by the late premier, and, not to mention a long list of civil appoint ments, he had the nomination of nine bish ops, nine deans and seven canons. RECENT PUBLICATIONS. Mr. Washbume has protested enough, if not too much, but he has not been able to clear away the suspicion that he is for him self before Grant. . His last telegram from Portland is : "Too unwell to attend to any thing, but express to all my friends my earnest hope that they will support General Grant" The Toledo Blade denounces the English sparrow as "a swaggerer, a boaster, a liar and a caucus packer, a frequenter of free lunches and a dead beat generally. He has no domestic virtues and is as devoid of public spirit as a defeated candidate after a county convention. TTi appearance in this country was a misfortune, and his continuance here is a nuisance that ought to be abated by general legislation." Those who fought for the Union' are not especially honored by the Democratic House. An important bill for the interest of the citizens of Washington and the protection of government property, providing for a greatly needed increase of the police force of the Dis trict of Columbia, has been defeated because a question arose over a clause making it necessary to appoint three-quarters of the new force from those who had served either in the Union army or navy during the rebellion. Editor Pierce of the Chicago Inter-Ocean predicts that the Illinois Republican State convention, which megts to-day, will disregard both the Cook county conventions and take np the oontestby Senatorial districts, seating such delegates as appear to be the choice of the people at the primaries, without regard to what either convention did. ,. This pro ceeding it is claimed will seat Grant delegates from the First, Third and Fourth districts. and Washbume and Blaine 'delegates from the Second, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh. - The Boston Flower Mission has just begun the work of its tenth season. ' Besides flow ers, vegetables and fruit have been distributed by the mission, and many an invalid has blessed the originators of this charity. There are many towns in Massachusetts Mr. H. E. Sawyer, of the State Normal School at New Britain, has had published a lesson book on words and numbers for pri mary schools. It is intended for children who know how to read simple words and should begin more serious lessons. It begins writing and arithmetic, continues reading, and suggests good material for oral lessons. The value of the book, aside from its good method, consists in this, that . it does not make play of what ought to be, in its way, honest work. It deserves the attention of those who have the care of the young. "Hesperus and Other Poems," by Charles De Kay, is a first volume of poems, about one-fourth of which, including the title poem, have already appeared in the maga zines. Intellectually, the author is one of the best equipped of the younger literary men, and in its combination of imagination and sensibility the volume reveals an extended range. Mr. De Kay's verse reflects a modern spirit, ana ne displays mucn originality. Among the "Poems of Nature," Poems of Other Lands," "Amatory Poems," "Poems put of Town," which make up this interesting collection, readers of widely different tastes will find not a little to admire. Published by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York city, and for sale here by Judd the bookseller. "Louisiana," by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is now published in book form. It is by no means as powerful a story as "Haworth's" or That Lass o'jjowrie s, but.it brings out a Bide of Mrs. Burnett's powers as a novelist that will be new to the great majority of her readers. There is something altogether novel in the peculiar piquancy which she has given to the beginning of this story, and the touches by which she has brought out the character of her heroine against a background very different from the stirring scenery she has used before. No one needs to be told, how ever, that the scene of the action whether it is the Southern watering place in full sea son or the bare Carolina farm house is sketched with all her usual skill and pictur esqueness ; or that the local dialect does not prove a snare. The heroine is a North Caro lina country girl brought up without educa tion or refined society, who finds herself at a fashionable watering place in company with a young lady from New York. She scarcely knows how to deport herself in the society of the hotel, her self-made garments are awk ward, and she can say but little. The New York lady, who takes to her pretty face, dresses her in one of her own genteel cos tumes, and there is a change, which is alto gether too sudden, from the ignorant country girl to a well-bred and elegant young lady. This change is so complete that the New York lady's brother, a literary gentleman of decided taste, is deceived, and believes that she came from good society in the metropolis. He finds out his mistake after awhile, but is then in love with her, and in the end marries her. The father of the heroine is the most care fully drawn character in the book, and gives it much Of its strength. Published by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, and for sale in this city by Judd the bookseller. Those who " have read "The Honorable Miss Ferrard," by May Laffan, will welcome "Christy Carew," which is from the same pen. And while they will not find the latter equal in power and 'interest to the former,Jit is by no means dull or devoid of strength. As one reviewer says of it : "In it the author exhibits the higher society of Ireland, as she did the wilder inhabitants in the former book. It abounds in sketches of character that ho one not intimate with Ire land could give, and they are fresh and en tertaining. The reader will get from its conversations also considerable insight into Irish politics, which is more or less a ques tion of religion ; the attrition of Protestant and Catholic is one of the motives of the story, and the tragedy of it comes from religious prejudice." There are too many characters, and the action is somewhat 'too varied and confused. Yet the book is well worth reading. Published by Henry Holt k Co., New York, and for sale in this city by H. H. Peck. The Bfasjaalnes. Appletonjs Journal for June has a paper by Appleton Morgan, resuming the discussion he began last year on the authorship of the Shakespeare plays. Mr. Morgan in this article reviews all the various theories of their authorship, and gives a most graphic and striking picture of the Shakespearean period. There is the first half of a novelette by Victor Cherbuliez, entitled Herr Drommel's Incon sistencies, in which the brilliant characteris tics of that writer appear at their best. There is another selection from Senior's Conversa tions, giving utterances from Lamartine, Kenan and others. There is a very entertain ing paper on Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy; paper on Siberia, by which it appears tnat banishment to Siberia is not the terrible thing it has been supposed to be. There is a second paper on Health at Home, from Dr. Richardson ; an article on Gottfried Keller, the Swiss novelist ; one on Dreams, which is full of strange matter ; a paper on Infernal Machines, - and the Spanish Theatre. The editor's departments complete the n umber, which is full of valuable and very readable material. FLASHES OV INTELLECT. THS .ONG OV THE KOTHSB ELEPHANT.

To the Editor of the Journal akz Coubibb : I am almost as much of a stranger in our own city as if I did not reside here, and hard ly have the time to visit its numerous places . of interest and see the delightful sights to be looked at from the numerous eminences that surround us, for it is just at this place that the last spurs of the Green Mountains lose themselves in the sea. Many of us have looked off from West Bock upon our beauti ful city ; and now as East Bock is about to become famous, I have taken considerable interest in reading what you have published in your columns concerning the park. A day or two ago one of our city "fathers" invited me to visit this romantic spot, in his company, and although I was no stranger to the place I accepted his invitation, having previously had experience with him in moun tain climbing, and knowing what others have said of him in this particular, viz., that he might be a good man to follow in the Board of Aldermen, but he was difficult to "keep with" when scrambling over a rocky trail, up an angle of forty-five degrees. However, I went. We took Orange street over Quinnipiac river and stood for jj while on the bridge watching its shiggiah flow toward the south, then started up the wooden steps from the present road (which is to be the great avenue of the future), and about three hundred steps brought us to the summit. Besting there awhile upon the rocks the sight was charming. It was early in the morning, and the air was clear to per fection. The cackling of ducks, the barking of dogs, the lowing of cattle were to be heard, and the report of a gun just then fired off echoed and re-echoed for seven times distinctly in the distance. Never do I re- member looking down upon a more enjoyable landscape. The river is crooked, as rivers generally are, and winds about in the green meadows, calm, without a ripple. A white duck, plainly seen swimming upon its sur face a mile away, was making its wedge shaped wake through its waters. The newly leaved trees prevented the city buildings being seen to the best advantage, but the spire of the Church of the Redeemer, Hillhouse High School, Peabody Mu seum, and the Catholic church on Hillhouse avenue showed plainly above all others. Fair Haven on the east looked more of a dwelling place than what could be seen -of the city proper, but the newly painted and recently built white houses directly to the south showed well with the bright green foliage. Besting awhile we proceeded along the face of the rock northward, taking an occasional view off toward the south until we came to an opening in the underbrush about a quarter of a mile to the northward of the "Stewart Place"(which is rapidly dropping into decay), and then taking another look to the north west we saw the best sight that the newly planned park affords. Looking towards the north is Whitneyville and the connecting lakes, stretching farther than the eye can reach , and in , a manner far more picturesque than any one can imagine who has never seen the Bight. Here my worthy friend grew almost enthusi astic with delight. Here is the spot, he said, to which he had taken several of those who at one time rather opposed the project of the city taking up the idea of adopting East Rock for a park. Here, he said, he pointed out to them the scenery, and against their former prejudices they were compelled by the sights that surrounded them to change their opin ions. To those who have never been at this spot my words, may seem overdrawn, but when they can stand where we did and see what we saw, and what any one can see who visits this spot, they will fully agree with me. I gathered there a handful of the prettiest wild flowers I ever saw grow, par took of a slight lunch and rested and looked until I came away with a feeling of pleasure that only those can feel who have been satis- fled to the full with enjoyment. To look ; upon the tract of land below, that Yale Col lege proposes to lend to the use of the pro- ' posed park, to see the winding river, to look yet farther off in any direction towards the westward, and to feel that all this is within a few moments walk of our City Hall, made me feel what I have felt a hundred times be fore, and what I have so often expressed in your much-read paper, that truly we New Haveners have one of the most delightful places to dwell into be found anywhere in the land.
