B. lilOHTHILL : My Sear Sir I take this method of expressing to you my thanks for the success with which you treated my son for catarrh and a chronio throat complaint which affected his general health to an alarming ex tent. Your treatment not only removed the local difficulties but also restored his general health and strength, as his improved appearanos readily mani fests. Tinder these circumstances I cheerfully offer you this public testimony of your skill and success, coupled with the assurance that I win always be hap py to be of service to you and to recommend to you any one afflicted with the diseases to which your prac tice is confined and over which yon have evidently gained a complete mastery. Tours very truly, K. 8. BOARDMAN. East Haddam, Conn., June 18, 188a From Mr. Chas. Boswell. from the Hartford Courant, June . During his practice in Hartford of nearly a years duration Dr. Llghthill has been the recipient of many nattering testimonials of his ability and skill, but certainly none of greater influence or importance than the following card from Mr. Charles Boswell, whose name is well known and whose word Is honored not only here but throughout the State. : Testimony of this character tends to confirm the high esteem in which Dr. IJghthill is so deservedly held In this com munity: Wjsst Haetfoho. Conn.. June 8. 1880. I take great rjleasure in recommendinsr Dr. I.itfht- htll to those suffering from catarrh and throat affec tions, having personally experienced the happy effects oj nis BKiuiui aaminisirsuons. . CHAS. BOSWBLX. From Win. F. Barnard, Esq., Su perintendent Five Points House of Industry, New York. No. 18S Wobth ST., New Yobk, Jan. 18, 1878. For several years I was afflicted with a severe form of catarrh, and to such an extent that my hearing be came impaired, and I was constantly troubled with roaring sounds in my head. It also gave rise to a troublesome cough, bronchial Irritation, and pain in my lungs. In fact, my condition was such that I felt convinced, unless something was done for my relief, I would soon be beyond cure. One physician thought that eventually I would be stone deaf ; another gave me his opinion that catarrh could not be cured, and that I had to endure as best I could Its pernicious consequences. Finding the treatuent pursued of no benefit, I placed myself under the professional care of Dr. Ughthill, of No. 6 West 29th street, whose nu merous indorsements for skill and success from well known residents of New York eity had been brought under my notice. The result of his treatment has been most beneficial. ' My hearing is perfect, the noises in the head have ceased, the pain in my chest has disappeared, the bronchial trouble Is gone, and I feel that I am substantially relievsd of -what threat ened to be a most serious, if not fatal, disease. I, therefore, cheerfully commend Dr. Lighthill for his ability and skill, and feel confident that any similarly afflicted will be benefited by placing themselves un der his care. His treatment gives neither pain nor distress, and can readily be borne by the most ner vous person. WILLIAM F. BABNABD. From Mr. P. W. Gallaudet, the well-known Banker, Kos. 3 and 5 Wall Street, New York. The unmistakable proofs which I hive of the terly skill of Dr. Lighthill in the treatment of deaf ness and catarrh, in a ease where he succeeded after some of our most oelebrated physicians had complete ly failed, enables me to recommend him warmly to the favor of all in need of his professional services and to tender him with pleasure soy name as refer ence. P. W. GALLAUDET. From Mr. Morris Phillips, Editor and Proprietor of the New Xork "Home Journal I testify with pleasure to the suessss which attend ed Dr. Lighthill's treatment in the ease of my brother who had been affected with deafness and noises in the head. The results of Dr. LighthQl's applications were as prompt as they were effective. The hearing was restored, the noises removed, and the ours was ss radical as It has since proved permanent. MORBIB PHILLIPS. From Bight Key. T. F. Hendricken, Bishop of Providence, B-1. My Dear Dr. Lighthill Permit me to thank you most heartily for your kindness to the Sisters of our eonvent, I had no expectation when I consulted you on Sister Dominica's deafness that you could so quickly restore her back to hearing, but she tells me that she hears now even better than she did before. For this sad your kind ana successful treatment of my own deafness, I thank jrou and would be glad to have you refer your patients to me. You know I can recommend you as a surgeon and physician, thor oughly accomplished in those departments of medi cine in which you practice. Vary truly and very sin cerely yours, tl.I.

This is the last year in which Maine will have its State election in September, and the old custom will have a notable ending, for there has been no more important political contest in the history of the State than that which will then be decided. It is a contest in which the good name of the State is in volved. What the desperate leaders of the coalition of Democrats and Greenbacker? 353 last winter to escape the consequences of de feat at the polls is still fresh in the minds of the people. The Governor and Council, constituting the canvassing board of the State, by wicked partisan discrimination in the application of the law and by plain vio. lations of law, withheld certificates from duly elected Republicans, and issued certificates to fusiontsts. Subsequent investigations fully revealed the deliberate and criminal quality of the proceedings of Governor Garcelon and his Council, and furnished ample evidence of as shameful an attack on popular rights as is known to our history. The two parties re sponsible for this wrong show no disposition to shun the responsibility or do works meet for repentance. They have, on the contrary, made this year a new alliance, and are asking for something like a popular vindication of themselves. It will be astonishing if they do not receive from the honest people of Maine a rebuke that they will feel, and that will be a standing warning to others tempted to engage in or countenance similar nefarious enter prises. The plan of the fusionists' campaign is a shrewd one. H. M. Plaisted, their candidate for Governor, is a deserter from the Repub lican party and is now a Greenbacker. It is stated that the Democrats have agreed to vote and work for him on condition that the fusion shall extend to the electoral ticket, both 'parties supporting a - common ticket, which shall be composed of four Democrats and three Greenbackers, or four Greenbackers and three Democrats. Of course, neither party has any hope of being able to carry the State alone in the Presiden tial, any more than the State election. But they have some hope of being able, by the means proposed, to deprive the Republican party of the seven electoral votes of Maine ; and if the share of those votes secured by the Democracy does not suffice, with the vote of Democratic States, to elect a President, the three or four Greenback votes may defeat an election by the people and throw the elec tion into the House of Representatives. As the Presidency is much more important to the Democratic party than the State govern ment, they are ready to vote for Plaisted, for the chance of defeating the Republican elec toral ticket. Though the fusionists are, or profess to be, confident of the success of this scheme, there is good reason to think it will fail. A correspondent of the Boston Advertiser who has been looking over the field gives an en couraging report concerning the prospect of Republican success. At the meeting of the Republican State convention last week there was a full and free exchange of views about the situation, and the conviction was general that the State would be found in the Republican column both in September and November. The Republicans have a strong advantage in their candidate. Gov ernor Davis has steadily advanced in public regard from the beginning of his public career, developing a capacity equal to every responsibility, and winning friends by the simple sincerity and honorable uprightness of his personal and official conduct. He is a stronger man this year than last year, and there is ground for the opinion expressed that his awn canvass of the State will be good for a large gain. For another favorable au gury the greenback heresies are losing their hold on the people of Maine as well as on those of other States. The hard times are no more. Every industry flourishes and all classes are prosperous. It is natural that under such circumstances many will give up allegiance to ideas which they adopted, not so much from conviction of their truth as from a desperate purpose to try any offered remedy. - There is also no doubt that many who voted with the fusionists last year will not do anything this year that will look like a sanction of last winter's fraud. In view of these things it does not seem that the predic tion careful and intelligent Republicans are making that Davis will beat Plaisted in Sep tember by at least 5,000 majority is a wild one. Of course if the Republicans win the fight in September they will also be victori ous in November. EDITORIAL NOTES. Vennor predicted the hot spell. General Grant will not vote for Hancock, and will vote the Republican ticket. The Chinese question has received fresh attention from the federal courts in a decis ion rendered by the Circuit Court in Califor nia upholding the validity of a State law requir ing a heavy fee before dead bodies can be ex humed for exportation. The law, which is based upon sanitary reasons, is leveled at the Chinese-practice of transporting the bodies of their dead to China; but the federal court very properly rules that in its health laws the State is supreme, as such legislation is a part of the police power, control over which re sides exclusively in the State. - The National Republican pertinently asks : Which Candidate will be the most attractive to the thoughtful men who toil in the fields, in the factories and at the workbench the man of West Point who was early taken by the Government, and whose entire life has been passed in its well-paid service, or the man who made his own fortunes, rising from a tow-headed canal boy to the leadership of his party in the House, to the Senate, and now to be the nominee of at least half of the American people for President r - A cam paign between such men will not long be doubtful if the laboring the contest. t - classes are to decide Ex-District Attorney E. H. Lathrop, of Springfield, Mass., who has been a promi nent Butler Democrat, takes himself from the Democratic State Central Committee and the Democratic party by means of a letter which is said to speak the sentiments of many Butler men in Western Massachusetts. Mr. Lathrop is not in accord with the results of the Cincinnati convention. He believes that the majority of both parties "honestly desire clean laws and fewer of them, pure ejections and uncorruptible candidates in both State and nation," and does not believe that a great convention is yet reduced of ne cessity to search for mere availability or for money alone. He thinks well of Hancock, but he cannot forget, or -cease to regret as yet, "that with men in the party and repre sented in the convention, of approved states manship and ability and unassailable integri ty, ripe in civic judgment and attainments and foremost in the affections of the people, they were passed by for one whose known civic qualities are mostly negations, and whose career is blazoned only by the red light of military achievements." Moreover, he does not like the action of the Com mittee on Credentials upon the Massachu setts contest. .The rooms of the Women's Silk Culture Association of Philadelphia are now open daily for the formation of classes. The ob ject of this school is to teach all branches of silk culture, with a view of introducing it into households, as a branch of domestic in dustry. It is hoped that the cordial support and patronage of the public will be directed to this school as tending to encourage the development of the culture of one of the most valuable commodities in the world, for which a large revenue goes to foreign lands. The culture of silk is better adapted to home industry than any other branch of work which opens as large a field in the commercial market, it being valuable as a commodity and largely in demand. It particularly commends itself to schools, reformatories, and wherever women and children are congregated, with need for useful employment, as an occupa tion of an intelligent and mocal bearing, not requiring constant attention, but enabling them to pursue their household duties. At this school pupils may learn the art of raising silk worms, reeling the silk from the cocoons, and other matters pertaining to silk culture. The association purchases the leaves of the white or the smooth-leaved purple mulberry, or the osage orange, for feeding the silk worms. It has a large number of eggs for sale, in large or small quantities, with a book of instructions npon raising the silk worm. It will purchase all the cocoons anybody can raise ; also any reeled silk anybody may pro duce at home. It can furnish any number of young trees. Mirzan, a Greek by birth but a naturalized American eitizen, who was tried before Min ister Maynard for the murder of an Egyptian lawyer, found guilty and sentenced to be hung at Alexandria October ICth, seems to have a good prospect of escape from the gal lows, though there is no question about his guilt. In no case where men have been con. victed by consuls of murder in the first de gree has the verdict been approved by the law officers of the Government. About a year ago the consul at Nagasaki, Japan, tried a man in a capital case and sentenced him to be hanged. A stay of execution was obtained until an application for mer cy could be forwarded to the Presi dent. The papers were examined at the State department by the Attorney General, and the result was that all agreed that the crime was not murder but manslaughter. The man's sentence was, therefore, com muted to five years' imprisonment, and he is now serving his sentence at the San Quentin prison, California. It was while investigating this case that the Cabinet discussed the con- stitutionality of the act which deprives an American citizen anywhere under the juris diction of the United States of his right to trial by a jury of twelve men. Although there was no necessity for formally expressing an opinion on this subject then, it is understood that the President, Secretary Evarts and At torney General Devens are clearly of the opinion that the statute conferring the power upon our ministers and consuls in China, Japan, Siam, Egypt and Madagascar, to try capital or criminal cases of higher grades, is unconstitutional. No man has as yet been executed under this law, and Mr. Evarts has declared, it is said, that no man ever will be so long as he is Secretary of State. The busy bee must go, according to French men of science. Not only are bees destructive to property, but they are actually dangerous to human life. The Prefect of the Paris Police has been appealed to. M. Del pech has drawn up a formidable brief, and is precise in his statements and clamorous in his demands. It seems that bee-keeping is lucrative in the neighborhood of Paris, and that so also is the distillery of spirits and the refinery of sugar. Moreover, wherever there are sugar works the bees are active and abundant. At Say, for instance, the loss at tributable to them is estimated at $5,000 a year.. M. Delpech gives facts and figures. At another refinery the number of bees killed daily amounted to twenty-two gallons. He himself saw a large glass of syrup drunk np in two hours. As to loss of life he is equally circumstantial. He gives a full list of people who died of bee stings in the course of the year. Most of the cases occurred in Amer ica, but many are furnished by France and some by Germany. The death is very pain fuV and in some cases extremely sudden. At Chemnitz, in Hungary, a peasant stung while cutting a branch of a tree died on the spot. At Chester, in Pennsylvania, a farmer, examining some hives, was stung, fell at once into a state of syncope, and died within a quarter of an hour. In another case twenty-five minutes elapsed between the wound and its fatal consequence. M. Delpech accordingly ; appeals to the Prefect for the protection of the police, and what he asks ia that the keeping of bees may be placed in the. category of dangerous and unhealthy ' occupations. When the Frenchmen get the destructive bee abolished let them attack the less dangerous though more annoying fly. THREE TO ONE. drivin' dat kerridge !

' To the Editor of the Jouknal aho Coubxkb : Thinking that perhaps the readers of the Coubleb would like to hear from a native of New Haven who is spending the summer in the Rocky Mountains, I will attempt to in terest them. Georgetown, an old mining camp with 5,000 inhabitants in fact one of the first in the State, is situated in a pleasant valley of the noted Clear Creek canyon, and at a distance of fifty miles west from Denver. It has an altitude of 8,400 feet, or about a mile and a half higher than New Haven. The town is surrounded by mountains, whose tops are twenty-five hundred feet higher, and in many cases covered with snow tha year round. Next month the mountain sides will be covered with beautifully variegated flowers of the most delightful perfume. The climate is very agreeable to almost every one, although some have difficulty in breathing when they first come here on ac count of the air being so rarefied. This is particularly noticeable when one attempts to run or climb a mountain, but in a short time one will get acclimated and think nothing of it. This climate is especially good for con sumptives, who, if they come at an early stage of the disease, will be cured, provided, however, they stay here. It is a mistake of Eastern people in thinking a person with consumption can come here and be cured and then live East again. In a short time the disease will come on again, worse than be fore in most cases. As a general thing the people here are stout and rugged, a large portion of them being miners, who have formerly lived East, and are very socially inclined. This is one of the best silver regions in the country, thousands of dollars being extracted annual ly in silver, gold and copper. The patient little "burros," or "jacks," as they are gene rally called, are a great convenience in this country, being able to travel where a man would hesitate, and carry one hundred and fifty pounds of baggage, which is strapped on their backs. They are constantly passing to and fro, loaded with every conceivable ar ticle kegs of lager, stoves, and even . jj road iron to be packed up the mountains for use in tunnel tramways. Great excitement prevailed here during the Chicago convention, the telegraph office be ing thronged day and night, and when Gar field was nominated considerable powder was burned. This whole State will probably go Republican very strong. Grant is thought but very little of here, there being some prejudice about the silver bill. To people coming here, I would recom mend that they purchase tickets of the genial "Alderman" StateB, and on their arrival com mend themselves to the tender mercy of Mr. Frank Grove, the popular proprietor of the Star Hotel, which is a great resort for min ers who come in from the neighboring camps. Leadville, the eighth wonder, is sixty miles from here, and, the miners having gone to work, everything is quiet again. A daily line of six -horse coaches is run from here, and a grand sight it is to see them "come in," the horses on s dead nm. ' 'Adoi.phtjs." DlAlcalt Engineering Work. -From the New York Tribune. What is considered the most delicate and propably the most difficult piece of engineer ing that the excavations for the North river tunnel have made necessary has just been successfully accomplished in the completion of the first twenty feet of the second or south tunnel. The first tunnel has already been driven 280 feet from the wevking shaft in Jersey City, making 200 feet under the river. The shell of the tunnel is composed of two feet of brick, laid inside of plates of boiler iron. These plates are supported, at first, at the top of the tunnel forming what is called an "over-hang," and the weight of the mud is largely resisted by the use of compressed air. In the first tunnel there is plenty of room, so that the upper iron plates con be readily bolted to the plates already completed and the work proceeds simply and easily. The opening of the second tunnel is perhaps twenty feet from the entrance through the air lock. Here one tunnel separates into two, which will be united again on Bearing the New York side. In beginning the second tunnel, there was nothing permanent to work npon. The tena cious slit in which the excavations are being made becomes hardened under the influence of compressed air and cracks, falling in masses if entirely unsupported, and allowing the air to escape. The iron plates are insert ed at first on the top, and it was necessary to devise some means of supporting them, as, of course, the arch could not be completed until the work had been pushed far enough ahead to allow sufficient room. Special arrange ments were therefore made for holding these plates in position until the ringcouldbe com pleted. A. secondary arch of iron plates, called a "bridle," was thrown across from the top of the north tunnel, the "bridle" being supported in position by another arch thrown up from the south side of the tunnel already constructed. This formed a temporary roof, wnicn, together with tne pressure of com pressed air, served to protect the workmen as they proceeded with the construction of the shell. The first of the work was exceedingly slow and tedious. Small excavations were made at the top under the personal supervis ion of the superintendent, and the slit was passed out from man to man in buckets like tne old fashioned lines at nres. As soon as a large enough space was cleared away an iron plate was inserted and held up by props. The slit in the center of the tunnel, a core of about fifteen feet in diameter, was left un disturbed, and the miners, after long and careful work,- excavated a passage about four feet wide all around this core, bolting the plates in position as they proceeded, and se curing them from lateral pressure by means of braces placed aeainst the core. As soon as the iron shell was connected, the masons pro ceeded to build along and inside of it a brick wall two feet in thickness. In this way the first five feet of the tunnel was built. The space between the brick work and the core of silt was then filled in with well compacted filling, and the whole was allowed to remain for several days in orker that the silt along the exterior of the iron shell might settle firm ly into position before the miners proceeded with the work. A few days ago it was judged safe to begin excavating. ' The core of silt was dug out, and the miners, protected by the iron shell five feet wide, began excavating the silt before them and putting plates of iron in advance,in the north tunnel. At present about twenty feet of the south tunnel are in course of con struction, but since the completion of the first five feet it has not been found , necessary to leave the silt core. ,: Captain W.
