Publil myl4 256 Chapel St., oror 9e.y IX NEW HAVEN. Deafness, Catarrh and Diseases of the Throat, Lungs, and Ker- vous System promptly" relieved and perma nently cured. NEW AND IMPORTANT DISCOVERIES. Dr. E. B. Lighthill, from New Tor)c city, begs leave to give notice that yielding to the pressure of many earnest and repeated solici tation to extend to ths affUctect inthia icii ity the benefit of his extensive experience and skill, has taken rooms at No. 35 College Street, Where hereafter he can be consulted on Monday, Tuesday, Wednes day and Thubsday 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 to 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 cure 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 flLses ; 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 success. In evidence of the success ef his practice, Dr. Lighthill take's 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 Church, last Ha tb, 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. J. CLARK. B rom Col. D. A. ltood, Proprietor of the United States Hotel, Hartford, Conn. Hartford, Feb. 11, 1880. Dr. E. B. 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 your 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 once to every unprejudiced mind. Tours truly, D. A. ROOD. 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 age I placed myself under Dr. Lighthill's ears, and the re sult 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 mucE 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 Hartford 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. Lighthill is assured. ' BICBAJU) CASE. Canton, Conn., Jet). 25, 188a CUKE OF DEAFNESS. Of Mr. W.TVJ. Cowles, of Norfolk, . Conn. .. Six years ago I became hard of hearing, 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 under the treatment and care of Dr. Lighthill, who suc ceeded in restoring me to perfect hearing, and thereby earned my lifelong gratitude 1 -' ' " W. J. COWLES.

OASBIK OTOtf) JB Tuesday Morning, June 8,' 1880. THE FIRST DAT. The anxiously awaited balloting began yes terday forenoon. Grant was not nominated on the first or the second ballot, Blaine was not nominated on the third, and the twenty eighth, which closed the voting for the day, left the situation about as dubious as the first one did. On the first ballot, when 755 votes were cast, Grant lacked 74 votes of the nom ination, and Blaine lacked 94. On the twenty-eighth and last, when 756 votes were cast, Grant lacked 72 and Blaine 100. . Gain of Grant during tha day 2 ; loss of Blaine 6. The highest vote Grant had during the day was 309, and the lowest 302. Blaine's high est was 285 and his lowest 275. Sherman started with 93 and ended with 92, a loss of one. Edmunds started with 34 and ended with 31, a loss of 3. ' Washburne" startid with 30 . and ended with 35, a gain of 6. Windom started with 10, and there was no change in the vote for him through all the twenty, eight ballots. Garfield started with 1 and ended with 2. Harrison, Hayes, Mc Crary, Davis and Hartranft each received the vote of one delegate. The voting thus far is chiefly remarkable for the "sticking" power it reveals. It is very seldom that such a number of ballots are token with such slight variations in the voting. Who will break first and where will they go when they do break are questions which cannot be answered with any more certainty than they could have been just after the first ballot. The supporters of the va rious candidates seem, at this distance, ca pable of keeping up the contest indefinitely, but arrangements may have been made dur ing the night that will cause important changes soon after the voting opens to-day. Connecticut's vote on the first ballot, and in the other ballots reported to us by States, will surprise manj who supposed they knew all about it. It was 3 for Blaine, 2 for Ed munds and 7 for Washburne. The adjournment lost night was, it seems, brought about by the vote of the anti-Grant combination. EDITORIAL NOTES. They call the English sparrows hoodlums in San Francisco, and the little rascals de serve the name. Farmington Falls, He. , is almost as good a place as Oberlin, Ohio. A revised edition of "Pinafore" was given one night last week at a church festival and the conductors took pains to substitute ' 'Why, Sammy, it's too bad !" for the more objectionable form. The annoyance and delays which the Chi cago Convention has suffered from the great number of outsiders who have witnessed the proceedings make it doubtful whether in fu ture a hall that will seat ten thousand persons will be considered the best or even a desira ble reason for holding a convention in any city. A correspondent writes : "Can you explain why the St. Francis Orphan Asylum needs three salaried teachers, while the New Haven Orphan Asylum has but one ? The former is purely sectarian, and there is a question in the minds of many if there is equity in such disposition of the public money. " Our cor respondent will find on examining the list of teachers and salaries that each orphan asylum has three salaried teachers. i The heirs to the great Hyde estate in Eng land are not only losing their faith in the im mense fortunes lying unclaimed, but some ore beginning to suspect that they have been made the dupes of those who knew long ago there was nothing in the matter but a hurrah, an assessment for expenses of investigation, and some snug fees, pleasant traveling, and light business burdens. It would be well if the imaginary heirs to many other estates in this country and in Europe could get their eyes open in the same way. i The Philadelphia Grand Jury recommend the re-establishment of the whipping-post. The local prisons are overcrowded with an idle, shiftless class of inmates, who persist in committing minor offences in order to get a comfortable lodging and tolerably wholesome food without being obliged to do any work. They look upon the prisons as pleasant boarding-houses, and when they are released lose no time in forcing their way back. Wherefore the Grand Jury would have them soundly whipped, and not lodged and fed at the public expense. ? A "medium" has been performing at Skan eateles, New York, who knows how to get out of a tight place. At one of his seances a spirit went unrecognized for a time. It was a tall, spare, sandy-haired ghost, and the person he claimed acquaintance with couldn't recognize him by the description. About fifty Christian names were proposed and final ly the spirit accepted Daniel, but even then the friend of his bosom couldn't recognize him. Finally the medium exclaimed: VHe is holding a peck measure in his hand."- The ghost was then set down as Daniel Peck and Spiritism scored one more. Among the important and interesting pa pers road at the recent meeting of the Amer ican Medical Association was one by Dr. J. V. Quimby, of Jersey City, on the criminal use of chloroform. Dr. Quimby referred to the murder of Policeman Richard Smith, for which "Cove" Bennett and Mrs. Smith were tried. Mrs. Smith held that she had been chloroformed, but the State contended that this was impossible that the fumes of the chloroform would have awakened her from her natural sleep. Here, then, was a nice and important medico-legal question.; If chloroform is properly given would it awaken a person, or would the person pass from a natural to an artificial or chloro form sleep without being awak ened? Mrs. Smith's counsel asked Dr. Quimby these questions, and he answered that he had never attempted the application of chloroform to a person during natural sleep, and the books, so far as he knew, were silent on the subject. He then made three experiments with a view of determining the point. He made arrangements with a Mr. A to enter his room when he was asleep and apply chloroform to him. He did this with entire success, transferring the person from a natural to artificial sleep without arousing him. He used about three drachms of Squibb's chloroform and occupied about seven minutes in the operation. The second case was a boy of thirteen who had refused to take ether for . a minor ' operation. Dr. Quimby advised the mother to give the boy a light supper and put him to bed. She did so, and Dr. Quimby calling when the boy was asleep administered chloroform and per formed the operation without awakening the boy.- The third case was a boy of ten years, suffering. from an abscess, and, the same course was pursued with equal success. Two important inferences, as Dr. Quimby pointed out, may be drawn from these cases. Minor surgical operations may be done with perfect safety and much more pleasantly than in the ordinary way, and, secondly, a person some what skilled in the use of chloroform may enter a sleeping apartment and administer chloroform with evil intentions while a per son is asleep. Hence the nse of this drug in the hndir of ft criminal may become an ef fectual instrument in the accomplishment of his nefarious designs. V EECEST PCBLICATIOxNS.

"The Prodigious Adventures of Tortarin of Toroscon," translated from the French of Alphonse Daudet by Eobert S: Minot, is a sort of modern "Don Quixote" and a brilliant and very humorous satire on French vanity and the love of glory. Tartarin imagined himself a great lion hunter, and went to Al geria for his pastime. There he Bhot a don key, and afterwards a blind, tame lion, for which he had to pay roundly. But he sent the skin to his native town and his neighbors received him home as one of the world's heroes. He was well fooled and swindled in Algiers, and not the least of his troubles was the attachment of a camel he had purchased, which persisted in following him, not withstanding his efforts to lose him and get away from him. The Btory of. Tartarin's ad ventures is very entertaining. Published by Lee fc Shepard, Boston, and for sale in this oity by H. H. Peck. "Homo Sum," translated from the German of Georg Ebers by Clara Bell, is a powerful novel. The time of the story is in the early part of the Christian era and the scene is in the Sinaitic Peninsula. The plot is an exceptional one. An anchorite, to shield a young friend who had been guilty of a love affair with a powerful centurion's wife, takes the blame upon himself, and cast off by his brethren, scorned by all, is scourged and driven into solitude for his supposed crime. He suffers until the real culprit confesses. The plot is well worked out with some very powerful and striking situations, and the character drawing is remarkably strong. Published by William S.

"The Ode of Life," by Lewis Morris, the author of "The Epic of Hades" and "Gwen," will be eagerly read by the admirers of the two latter poems. The author says of it : Whatever the fate of the work, the writer knows well that nothing more mature can be expected from his pen, nor can he hope again to find unappropriated bo fruitful a subject for verse. " The ode is divided into minor odes, such as "The Ode of Infancy," "The Ode of Childhood," etc. It will not find so much favor as has the former work of the author, and the peculiar metres used are not wholly pleasing.

Le Page Kenouf, contains the six Hibbert lectures for 1879. The writer begins by exhibiting the mistakes of the early Christian and of the Heathen writers upon the religion of Egypt. They looked at the system as outsiders and strangers, and saw nothing more in it than the mere- irorship of animals, a gross and sensual worship as low as African fetichism. They did not understand the symbolism of this cult, nor did they know that certain divinities were worshipped. Egypt had a lofty code of morals, and, the immortality of the soul was a firm article of faith. The prevalent ideas of ancient Egypt ian life proceed from novelists and dramat ists whose purpose is best secured by ignorant misrepresentation. The language of Egypt has perished and the key to the decipherment of its writings is lost. The language has, however, been slowly recovered, and every day gives a better understanding of Egyptolo gy. There is a scarcity of Egyptian texts to work upon. They are mostly copied from old walls, which are covered with pictures and texts, and the destruction of which is going on rapidly. The Arabs dwell in the old tombs and ruins, and deface them with smoke or actually tear them 'down. Mr. Benouf describes the monuments that verify success ive reigns of Egyptian kings and demonstrate the great antiquity of the kingdom, tracing it far back into the pre-historicages. He de scribes the gods of Egypt and points out that with all their divinities, the Egyptions were really Monotheists. He treats in one lecture of their Communion with the Unseen World, and in others of their religious books and hymns.

The moral is, that he should creep under the fence instead of climbing over it. Norristown Herald. COMMUSICATIOXS. roes Not Want Everything.

In the large Tammany Hall at the present time there is on exhibition one of the most remarkable mechanical curiosities, in the shape of an astronomical clock, that has ever been been in this country. It is the work of a German named Felix Meiers, an adopted citizen of America, and he claims that it is ;he grandest work of horological science ever produced, being superior in many respects to the celebrated Strosburg Cathedral clock. Viewed exteriorly it is a mass of ornamenta tion, the carving of which alone occupied more than a year. Interiorly there is a vast network of wheels and complex machinery, oil of which, however, is apparently under the completest of control, The clock stands about eighteen feet high, is five feet deep and weighs 4,000 pounds. It is moved in factions, run I y 700 pound weilt ', regulated by a mercury pendulum tmrty pounds in weight, and requires winding once in twelve dnys. The case is of Michigan black walnut, and is more or less decorated with designs emblematic of American history. Above the main body of the clock is a marble dome, upon which Washington sits in his chair of state, protected by a canopy which is sur mounted by a gilded statue of Columbia. On either side of Washington is a colored ser vant, in livery, guarding the doors which open between the pillars that support the canopy. On the four corners of the main body of the clock are black walnut mches containing human figures emblematic of the morcn of life : the two lower ones are sup ported by two female figures with flaming torcnes ; one of tne mches contains the figure of an infant, the second the figure of a youth, the third of a man in middle life, the fourth of an aged craybeard, and still another, di rectly over the centre, contains a skeleton representing Father lime. All of these fig ures have bells and hammers in their hands. The infant's bell is small and sweet toned ; the youth's bell larger and harsher ; the bell of manhood strong and resonant ; that of old age diminishing in strength, and the bell of the skeleton deep and sad. A figure of W. C. Bryant and another of Professor Morse, in ventor of telegraphy, rest upon the pillars that support the planetary system. It is said that the mathematical calculations are so nice ly adjusted as to correctly record the move ments of the planets for 200 years. The rela tionship of the planets to the universe is shown on a large dial, and the changes of the sun and moon, with reference to" the earth, are not only instructive but wonderfully indi cative of the correctness with which machin ery has been madetoobeythewillof man. The local time of the principal cities of the world is given, and any variation at New York or Washington, London or Faris, is instantly re corded. One of the movements of this won derful machine is so elaborate that it cannot be regularly repeated more than once in eighty-four years, although the inventor has a crank attachment whereby he can at will hasten or retard the operation of the machin ery in giving his descriptions of the same. The quarter hours are struck by an infant, the half hours by a youth, the three-quarter hours by a middle-aged man, and the end of the hour by a graybeard. Death, represented by a skeleton, then proceeds to solemnly toll the full stroke. At this moment the even hour a strain of music is heard, one of thir teen airs, a servant opens a Bide door under the roof or portico of the ciock, and the fig ures of all the Presidents, from Washington to Hayes, solemnly file out, and, passing the figure of Washington raise their hands and salute the Father of his Country. The latter rises to his feet and extends his right hand. in which is held the Declaration of Independ ence. He remains standing until the unique procession passes, and then solemnly resumes his place. No description, however, can con vey a complete idea of this curious invention. D.
