Nor are we about to make " enormous sacrifices at whatever cost" We are simply about to do, what "at this period of the year we generally do, namely, clear out a great many goods at reduced prices. But, having in vie-7 some IterataonsJ wul'' im provements in our store, and considering it advisable to have a small stock when these are being- made, we mean to clear out more than usual, by offering more than usual induce ments. Therefore we announce that our JULY CLEARING SALE WILIi BE Dry Goods will be sold at prices, which to all will be CHEAP. J. N.

Its Nature, Symptoms, Re sults and Cure ByDr.JightliiUof New : . York City. v At Xo. 17 IT Cliapel Street, On Monday, Taesday, Wed t" . nesday and Thursday - drteiaeli week,. r Among th list of chronio diflnnoa which affect the human frame, Catarrh is the most prevalent, most of fensive, most productive of discomfort, and most lia ble to a variety of dangerous and diott easing compli cations. Thousands are annually hastened to a prem ature grave from its pernicious effects, and no doubt thousands are at this moment slowly perishing under its fatal Influence, ignorant of the cause of their de clining health. It was, In fact, the destructive influ ence of this disease and its alarming prevalence that first attracted our attention, and induced us to give the subject our special attention. When we first commenced our investigations but ittle was known of catarrh. It was generally looked, upon as a mere local complaint of no importance, but our experience soon established the fact that In reali ty catarrh is a deep-seated, complex and often a ma lignant disease, apt to spread to every- portion of the mucous membrane, invading in turn the cavities of the head and ears, the throat, bronchial tubes and. air cells of the lungs,and often extending to the stomach, bladder and other organs lined by the mucous mem brane. In 1855 we first published the results of our investigations, and ever since then it has been our special object to familiarize the public mind through lectures and the medium of the press, with the nature, tendency and destructive oonsequenoss of catarrhal disease, and to awaken that interest 1st regard to its timely and judicious treatment which its importance demands. . ZHschsirge from the Head. Catarrh manifests itself by a discharge from the head, varying in its nature in different cases, and even in the same individual at different times. It may be a thin, colorless, acrid fluid, or a glairy tarch-like substance ; generally, however it is a thick, purulent matter, either greenish-yellow or a deep green tint, occasionally streaked or flecked with blood. So copi ous and offensive Is the discharge in many cases that the patient feels as though his whole head were in a state of corruption. Again, the offensive matter de posits itself in the nasal cavities in the shape of dry incrustations, which, in some cases, accumulate to such an extent as to form a plug, obstructing breath ing and producing serious discomfort. Fragments of these morbid concretions occasionally pass into the throat, but most generally they are blown from the nose with considerable violence, in pieces of from one or two inches in length, either solid or tubular in form, often bearing the exact shape of the nasal cavity. Hawking." Much of the discharge drops Into the throat or col lects as a tough, viscid, tenacious phlegm behindhand above -the soft palate, in the passage between the throat and head, embarrassing respiration and crea ting a constant ndalmost irresistible desire to re lieve the throat by hawking, a practice as .embarrass ing to the one afflicted, as it is disagreeable to those around. 1J Offensive Breath. An offensive breath is the almost Invariable result of Catarrh. Ill all cases the breath is more or less tainted, but in some it is so revoltingly offensive as to render the sufferer an object of disgust to him self as well as to others. Again, cases are occasional ly met with in which the stench is really overpower ing and sufficiently fetid to poison the atmosphere of a whole room. Thus, a person affected with catarrh lives continually in an impure atmosphere, and in hales a poisonous effluvia with every breath. The sense of smell is generally blunted or entirely lost, and a similar effect on the taste occasionally su pervenes. The voice is husky or of a nasal character, while oftentimes there is a continual hoarseness, ac companied by more or less cough, excessive- debility and emaciation. Indeed, in some instances the loss of flesh is so considerable and progressive as to sug gest the existence of tubercular disease, and not a few cases of catarrh that came under our notice have been regarded as consumption, and so treated by unwary or inexperienced practitioners. Deafness and Noises in the Head. Catarrh is one of the most frequent canoes of deaf ness. Scarcely any one afflicted with this disease for any length of time retains normal aouteness of hear ing. W ith some the hearing suffers at first only by spells, the ears becoming obstructed with each access ion of cold,but the spells of deafness occur oftener and last longer, until at length the hearing remains per manently impaired. In others the hearing grows in distinct without the appearance of any premonitory symptoms, the deafness increasing gradually until all useful hearing is lost. Noises in the head of every conceivable description often make their appearance and add materially to the existing distress. Nervous and Mental Disturbances. Catarrh being located so close to the nervous centre, the brain almost invariably exercises a pernicious in fluence in that direction, and this we find dally veri fied in our practice. Evidence to that effect mani fests itself in defective power of attention, weakness of memory, and a general enfeeblement of the mental faculties. The patient cannot accomplish his usual mental tasks without a pronounced and painful effect and finds a persistent attempt to concentrate his at tention productive of headache, dizziness, confusion of ideas and excessive fatigue. With this a dull and heavy feeling of fullness of the head is generally ex perienced, or a sense of tension or contraction above and between the eyes. In some cases the patient is subject to occasional attacks of dizziness and neural gia of the head of a most intensely painful character. Mai-Respiration. Owing to the constant discharge and thickened con dition of the mucous membrane, the nostrils are al ways more or less obstructed, rendering respiration through the nose either difficult or Impossible, forc ing the patient to breathe through the open mouth, especially during sleep. This practice is fraught with great danger, because it admits sold air, full of impu rities and disease germs, directly into ths lungs and circulation, withoul having been properly warmed and purified by its passage through the nostrils, andJ thus a way is paved to the establishment of bronchial and pulmonary difficulties and other, diseases arising from blood poisoning. Development of Consumption. As the disease fastens itself upoa Its victims, one after another, the vital powers give way ; the patient loses flesh and strength, is languid and unable to per form mental or physical labor with the usual facility. The appetite becomes weak and capricious, a result scarcely to be wondered at when We take into consid eration the large avrpormt of offensive secretion from the head and throat, which is continually being con veyed to the stomach by the food and drink, or pass es down during sleep. 1 The mucous membrane bectjmes morbidly sensitive and, in spite of the utmost eare, becomes affected from the slightest causes, so that at last even a breath of wind upon the lining of the nose or throat becomes productive of a cold, and gives rise to serious distur bance of the respiratory organs. Thus the patient is subject to frequent and repeated colds, each one ag gravating the disease by giving it a new impulse, and attacking a larger extent of surface than its predeces sor. In this manner the catarrh sptusds from organ te organ, invading the throat, larynx and bronchial tubes, until, encroaching further and furthert anal ly reaches the! lungs. Let the lesson be home in mn which experience teaches us daily, that to neglect the proper treatment of catarrh is to die with consump tion. Treatment and Care. The scientific method of treatment which we have originated and perfected by years of practical experi ence eradicates the disease rom the system complete ly and permanently. This fact we have dsmcttstrated In thousands of eases, representing the disease in eve ry form and in all ita various stages of development Our applications reach the diseased part in the most direct manner, instantaneously penetrating every cell and cavity of the head ooinmunicating with the nos trils, and subjecting every portion of the affected membrane to the healing action of the remedy em ployed with the most beneficial rsentts, sad without causing the least pain or unpleasant sensation. Indeed, so effective la the plaa of medioatioa that a single application is productive of decided relief ; the offensive smell is removed, the discharge soon dimin ishes, irritation is allayed, the inflammation subsides, ulcerations heal, and finally a radical and permanent cure is effected.

A great deal of attention has been paid to the gathering and study of statistics of sui cide in European countries, and the results of such work are exceedingly interesting to all those who think "the proper study of man kind is man." It is now seen that suicide is an inevitable product of society in civilized countries, and one student of the subject does not hesitate to declare that "it is society which prepares the crime ; the guilty man is only an instrument of execution.'' Be this as it may, the crime, like other social phe nomena, is governed by fixed general laws, and though much is yet to be learned con cerning these laws, they are now so well known that it can be foretold with consider able accuracy how many people and of what class, sex, age, etc., will kill themselves in a year in any European country. A writer in Blackwood's Magazine for June deals with the statistics of suicide in Europe in a very interesting and instructive way. The most startling statement made is that while a century ago the number of suicides yearly in Europe did not probably exceed 5,000 or 6,000, or about 1 in every 30,000 population, not fewer than 00,000 a year, or about 1 in 5,000 people, are now known to put an end to their existence. Nor does this great total include unreported cases or un successful attempts, which together are esti mated to number about 30,000 a year. Ac cording to these figures, the average rate or percentage of suicide as compared with the whole population is more than five times greater now than it was a hundred years ago. If this were beyond question true it would be very gloomy, but the. thoroughness with which the record has been kept in recent years will explain away much of the appar ent increase. Still, there is good reason to believe that suicide is becoming more and more attractive as a means of escape from toil and trouble. . Suicide in Europe presents many curiosi ties. - Climate, for instance, does not seem to have much influence upon it. The climate of Norway and that of Busvia are very much alike. But in the former a high and in the latter a low rate of suicide is found. In neither England or Denmark is the climate delightful, but the highest rate of suicide i. found among the melancholy Danes, thirty five of whom kill themselves to one Portu guese, while in England the rate is compara tively low. But a singular relation exists be tween the seasons and suicide. Most people who die by their own choice prefer to do so in daylight and in warm weather. Suicides at night are comparatively rare, and the num ber in winter is small compared with that in summer. Spring and summer are everywhere the great suicidal periods. The average goes down from November to May, and up from May to November. This strange result is at tributed to heat. Suicides not only most frequently choose daylight and warm weather for their exit, but they also generally select the most sudden and easiest modes of death. The old cutting and piercing operations are largely replaced by firearms, aimed at the head more frequent ly than at the heart, thus killing at once and with little or no pain. Poisons are less used than formerly. Now, as always, asphyxia is popular, and hanging and drowning ara the ".chief keys to voluntary death." They are chosen, and about equally, by not less than 70 per cent, of those who kill themselves. Those who live in the country seem to be in much less danger of contributing to the statistics of suicide than those who live in large towns and cities. Thus, the rate is said to be never less than five times higher in huge towns than in small villages, and it is thirty times higher in great capitals than in rural districts. Labor shows its power to curse in the fact that about five-sixths of - those who kill themselves are working people. Education is no barrier to suicide, for the rate is the highest in those countries and classes where there is the least illiteracy. Conviots and, prostitutes do not often hill themselves. Three men take themselves out of the world to one woman, and the reason given for this is that "women are habitually better be haved and quieter ; they have more religion, more resignation and a stronger sentiment of duty." Life seems to grow less dear with age, for between 9 and 90 people go on kill ing themselves in a steadily increasing ratio It is extremely unpleasant to be told that the disposition to suicide among children is in creasing, and the number of boys and girls under 16 who now yield to it in Europe is nearly 2,000 a year. Of course the motives for suicide vary much and cannot be very accurately known. But a great many young fools of both sexes kill themselves for love ; middle-aged per sons for loss of property, defalcation, disap pointment and various causes ; and old peo ple frequently from the sheer weariness .which makes their lives a burden. We may add, in closing, that the idea somewhat commonly held that no person of sound mind can commit Sbicide is not borne out by the facts. EDITORIAL NOTES. Hancock is going to carry Pennsyl when Garfield carries Georgia. . . The general opinion of the press and of doctors that Tanner's fast is genuine thus far is strengthening. As long as such an experi. merit was to be made, it is pity that it could not have been made under better conditions. As it is, even if Tanner holds out for forty days, few will believe that he is not hum bug. ' ' - ' , The free ice-water fountain under the wing of the New York postofflce has been in opera tion a week, and it is stated that the tippling places in its vicinity have pecuniarily suffer ed, free ice-water being mora attractive to some than high priced beer or whiskey. The same effect has been caused by the drinking fountains in London- ' . . - Brused bodies and sore heads are not an on common result of picnics of a certain class,but the grand fight which occurred Sunday on the barges conveying the "Peter Leitch Associa tion" of New York was of an unusual charac ter and somewhat similar to a naval engage ment.. There are people, though, who think thai to have the air full of flying, tumblers and bottles, and the deck under their feet slippery with blood, are enjoyable features of a picnic, and without some wholesome excite ment of the kind would pronounce the affair a very "slow" one. Jesse Billings, whose trial on a charge of murdering his wife IB yet fresh in the minds of the public, seems to be a favorite of for tune. Since the termination of the trial he has flourished amazingly. He has sold ice at a clear profit of 10,000, has five canal boats under process of construction, and recently added a fine farm to his possessions. He in tends, it is said, to live in Saratoga, and the Eagle of that place says: "Saratoga always welcomes men of brains, wealth and enter prise, and we have no doubt Mr. Billings would find a residence here pleasant and prof itable." A fellow once walked out bf a store in Gloucester, Mass. , with a fish which he had stolen tucked under his vest. He hadnt gone far with his plunder before he was brought to a halt by a shrewd passer-by who," taking in the situation at a glance, exclaimed : ' 'See here, my friend, you ought either to wear longer vests or steal shorter fish." The Al banytTournal aptly applies this anecdote to the Democratic party, and declares that the war record of the party ought to be longer than it is, Or else the party's present display of affection for the soldier ought to be short er than it is. It is not the fault of General Garfield hinj self if any doubt exists anywhere as to his views on the great questions before the coun try, for he has always spoken with frankness and courage. To remove uncertainties among those who have not followed his pub lic declarations carefully, the Industrial League of Philadelphia, of which the venera ble General Robert Patterson is president, and which is made up from both political parties, has authorized a statement of what it understands to be his position on the import ant questions of the revenue and the tariff. The statement, of course, is in accord with the last production on that subject from Gen eral Garfield's own pen namely, the state ment of the minority of the Committee of Tays and Means against the bill reducing sad repealing certain duties offered at the last session. It is not strange that 12,000 dentists find employment in the United States. Dr. J. N. Farrar, of New York city, states that not less than half a ton of pure gold, costing about $500,000, is annually packed away in the mouths of Americans, and, in addition to this, there is probably four times as much cheaper material, such as silver, platinum, etc., used in filling cavities in teeth. He makes the curious and interesting estimate that only 300 years would be required to bury the amount of gold coin now in circulation in the country (,$lf0, 000,000) in the graveyards. The magnitude of American dental operations is shown by the statement that about 3,000,000 artificial or porcelain teeth, mounted on various kinds of plates, are made every year. Dr. Farrar supplements these figures with the important statement, based on statistics compiled with painstaking labor, that out of an average of eighty people of all classes, only one can be found with perfect dental organs. The other seventy-nine require a dentist's care. As much as twelve years ago the lov. Pe troleum V. Nasby had his eye on General Hancock, who was then in command in Lou isiana and, having just issued "General Or der No. 40," was in high favor with the Dem ocratic party and a formidable candidate for the presidential nomination, although politi cians of the Nasby sort could not take kindly to him because of his then recent services in the army. In one of his letters of that year, purporting to be addressed to President Johnson, Nasby said: I would suggest that you, to wunst, take the last order uv General Hancock and make it the subjeck uv a message to congriss. De tale in full the general's talk here, and add to it ez only yoo kin. Tell congriss the general is agoin to make the law the rool uv his con duck, and that h. proposes to uphold the corts and civil authorities, and will only yoos his military to these ends agin the niggers. Sling it here suthin' to the effeck that Ameri can liberty (which, in this country, is a pe keolyer variety of the article) is still an in heritance uv the white people, and shall alius be. Tell em that when a soljerhas onlimited power in his hands, and refooses to yoos it for the purpose of satisfyin selfish ambishun, he presents a hefty sample uv virtoo under diffi kulties. It wood be well at this pint to compare Hancock and Washington, maKin the differ ence atween um merely nominal. Say that there maybe officers in the army besides Han cock who immitates Washington, but you haven't sot eyes on em ez yit. Assert that Hancock is the first officer in command, sence the close uv the late onpleasantness,what hez given utteruns to such sentimence in his or ders, and demand that Congriss shell vote him a gold medil. - - I sejest this be done to wunst, for reasons which are obvus. We desire Hancock to con tinue in well doin, but ez that well doin in our behalf mite lead us to his nominashen for the Presidency, it iz well enough to kill him off in that direcshun so soon as he is committed. Hence write. Don't let Se ward diloot it, or Kandoll polif ox it. Put in my naked idees, clothed in yoor terse and vigrus languidge, and yoo will hev done a good thing. Times have evidently changed since Nasby thus wrote. RECEJST PDBLICATI0SS. Harper's Magazine for August is a bright summer number. . . The illustrated articles are "Robert Burns," a poem, by Henry W.

COMMUMCATIOSr Down with tne English Sparrows. To the Editor of the Jocbkax. and Coubier : Cannot something be done to get rid of the greatest nuisance that New Haven has ever been afflicted with, viz : those little "bull-headed" sparrows? They do every thing that is mean, and nothing thafs good. They drive off all other birds, defile our windows, porticos, steps and fences, pull in pieces young and tender vines, and are in some kind of mischief all the time. If the '-powers that be" will get some good druggist to prepare some food for them that they will like, and which will send them where they will never return, they will be doing the public a great favor. A quantity of the food could be made up, and every person owning or renting a house be invited to call and get a sufficient quantity for his or her residence ; and by giving them a bounti ful supply we may be able to get rid of the little rascals. They are increasing so very fast that the sooner it is done the better. . Mr. Beecher's Creed. A Declaration to His Congregation. Mr. Beecher preached his farewell sermon before his annual vacation in Plymouth church Sunday, and said that as it had been announced that he had embraced infidel no tions he would state clearly what his belief really is. He said that he believed in God the orthodox God that the Bible contained the truth as known to the Hebrew nation, that it was inspired and that its inspiration was given by God for reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness. He believed that the true view of the inspiration of the Scriptures was to be obtained by a rigorous study of all the facts connected with them. The Bible was not completed at any one time ; it was written by different hands and at differ ent times, and the substance of it was con veyed by the divine mind. It was largely a record of history, and should be studied as any other history ; a good deal of it was lite rature and a good deal poetry, and these should be investigated in a like spirit. Some parts were more valuable than others. The ten commandments were more interesting than the description of the sanctuary, and the narrative of the Gospel was infinitely more important than the history of Ruth. The different parts had different values. He held, with all the Church, that the Bible was not a scientific guide. He accepted the lan guage ef the Westminster Confession in re gard to the Supreme Judge, etc. Sin required divine interposition and cor rection. The nature of God is incompre hensible, and all we could do was to obtain a fragmentary and partial view of it. "I ac cept the Trinity," he added, "although for four thousand years it was certainly not be lieved, and many good men have lived and died without it. I believe in the divinity of Christ, though I reject the dogmas of His divine and human souls, as set forth in the Athanasian creed." While accepting the orthodox definition of the Trinity, however, Mr. Beecher "would not demand of others the technical recognition of a philosophy al ways obscure and which must always be so." The Holy Ghost he considered to be "the source of all superior human activity." He was like the sun, renovating and stimulating and giving out new life. The Bible and sci ence were not at war, no matter how much 1 1 .V, n ' 'I believe in the atonement, not as an his toric act, a device to mend a broken law, but I believe in it as something in the eternal and inherent nature of divine love. The life, sufferings and death of Christ was an illustri ous exposition of the atonement, but not the atonement itself. From out the subtleties and puerilities of mediicval and modern theo logians, I believe in the sublime simplici ty of the Apostles' Creed. If I am a heretic, I am a heretic after the pattern of the early Church." Speaking of retribution, he said that the conduct of men in this world had certainly a powerful influence on the future. The Old Testament did not teach this, but Christ did. He doubted the application of the passage quoted as supporting the dogma of eternal punishment of "an eternity of conscious torment. " Silk-Worm Culture. A Pennsylvania Woman's Success in Itair ing the Worms. From the Philadelphia Press. About 60,000 silk-worms are at work on the farm of Frank Graff, in Birmingham, Delaware county, Pa., and right lively, too, some of them being almost done, and straw colored cocoons are piling up thick and fast. The worms are being supervised by Miss Mar tha Hamilton, lining at Mr. Graff's, and she flatters herself that for her first attempt she is doing remarkably well. She bought the eggs, and after they had hatched, at which time they are as fine as a hair and have to be lifted about with camel's hair brush, imme diately proceeded to feed them on mulberry leaves. The growth is very rapid, and in six weeks' time they are of full Bize, being near ly three inches long. They are perfectly ravenous in their appetite, and it is no small job to find enough food for them, and the country for miles around was scoured in search of mulberry trees, which, as is well known, are not numerous in that vicinity. When the whole mass would begin their feast on the leaves the noise made by them sound ed like rain falling on the roof. While feed ing, the worm is of a light green color and is soft as velvet to the touch. Along the body are nine small breathing holes. The insects, as would be imagined from their eating pow ers have strong serrated jaws, which soon eat through a leaf. Some of the worms have es caped from their mistress and gotten up on the roof of the barn and are there spinning away at their cocoons. The silk while in the worm is a gum which is exuded in two strands. These unite and form one thread of silk. The worm in starting its cocoon first makes an outer covering of floss silk, within which they spin the silk, bending the head and body up and down the crossing to every side, entirely surrounding the body, as a protection against the wind and cold. Thus in making a covering for itself this insect makes the covering for thousands of gayly. attired women of all ages and in every chme. The cocoon made, the worm passes into a chrysalis state and comes forth a moth or fly to lay eggs and then die. Thus does the race continue. The silk-grower, however, if he wants the eggs, allows the worm to go through all these stages ; but if he wants the silk he "chokes" the worm while in the chry salis state, for if it is allowed to eat its way out the tbread of the silk is broken and val ueless. The chrysalis is "choked,", or in other words killed, by heating it over 'a fire or throwing it into boiling water. The labor attending this silk industry is not a light one, and whether there is any money in it remains to be seen. Mrs. Fogg at Kennett Square, Chester county, is also raising silk-worms, but only has about three thousand of them. The preliminary injunction served on the Weed Sewing Machine Company, of Hart ford, by the owners of the Halsey patent on the feed of the Eldredge sewing machine, has been removed by settlement, and the Weed works are fully at work again. '
