We are not about to " strike terror to the hearts of our competitors,' nor "sprca J con sternation all around." 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 view some alterations and im provements in our store, and considering it advisable to have a small Btock when these are being made, we mean to chair out more ihnrt 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. ADAM & CO. Jyia A Seasonable Ve bought last week of one of the best manufactur ers in New England a large job lot, some six hundred pairs, of Ladies' Fine French Kid Empress Ties and ijSlippers, the same shoes that we have sold this season Jjat $2.00 and $2.50. In the lot are 78 pairs of French ..Kid Low Sandal Button and Ties that cost to make three dollars each pair. It wasja"," clearing out' purchase, the best we have made this year. We have thrown them all into our windows at one dollar and twenty-seven cents ($1.27). Our customers have found many bargains in large lots advertised at our store since January first, but the French Kid Empress Shoes that we advertise this morning at one dollar and twenty-seven cents will need no puffing in the papers when once examined by our customers. We want to, and expect to, sell them within six days. WALLACE B. Jy9 Spoons, Crockery and Glassware, For Excursions, at JLow Rate?. H. N. Whittelsey, Jr., Jj8 WEDDING PRESENTS!

Statement of Mr. T. 91. Cox, No. 85 St. John Street, 7 Mew Haven." Ir. IiiglithUl takes pleasure and pride in submitting- to the consid eration of those interested the fol lowing: statement of Mr. T. M. Cox, an old and prominent resident of New Haven. A Happy Experience. (From the Journal and Courier, July 10.) We take pleasure in presenting to our read ers the following card from Mr. T. M. Cox, an old resident of New Haven, and a gentle man highly respected and widely known in our business and social circles. The state ment of his happy experience of Dr. Light hill's treatment is full of interest and will be deservedly accepted by our community with the utmost confidence. Testimony ef this nature and character reflects great credit on Dr. iiighthill's ability and skill, and cannot fail to establish him in public confidence. New Hates, July 9. It gives me great pleasure to bear witness to the remarkable skill Of Dr. Lighthill and the successful results of his treatment. For the past thirty-six years I had been troubled with a-catarrhal complaint, which was very annoying and often interfered with my swal lowing and breathing. Of late years it at tacked my hearing, impairing it to a consid erable extent, and as it kept constantly in creasing upon me it subjected me to serious inconvenience. One of Dr. Lighthill's pa tients, finding himself greatly benefited by his treatment,advised me to place myself un der his care, and happily I did so. Dr. Light hill effectually removed the catarrhal com plaint and all its attendant troubles, and re stored my hearing to its former perfection and acuteness. I know Dr. Lighthill's repu tation is so well known that any recommen dation on my part is scarcely necessary, but I feel like discharging a duty to the afflicted in New Haven and vicinity to make this pub lic statement of my case, so that others may be enabled to embrace this opportunity of obtaining relief. My happy experience of the results of Dr. Lighthill's efforts has taught me to appreci ate fully the value of specialties in medical practice, and I feel assured that a few min utes' conversation with Dr. Lightnill will con vince the most skeptical of the fact that he is a master of his profession. T. M. COX. 85 St. John street. 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 Deafness, Catarrh, and dis eases of the Throat, Lungs and Nervous Sys tem, and it is with pardonable pride that he refers to the extraordinary success which at tended his efforts. His recent discoveries are of the highest practical importance, render ing treatment so effectual that relief is expe rienced at once, and permanent cures are of ten effected in the most stubborn and aggra vated cases ; and it is one of the happy fea turesof his method that the applications cause neither pain nor distress, and can be readily administered to the most timid or nervous person. A candid opinion will inva riably be given as to the possibilities of a cure, and no case will be accepted for treat ment which does not present a reasonable chance for success, while those who place themselves under Dr. Lighthill's professional care may rest assured of receiving every ben efit guaranteed by science, skill, and an ex tensive experience.

Chasues J. Oou, Chairman. Hartford, June 25, 1880. ' , GENERAL GABVIELD'S LETTER, While General Garfield has not risen to the height of bis opportunity in his letter of ac ceptance, much of what he says in that docu ment is very satisfactory. He states admir ably the position of the Bepulicans in rela tion to the doctrine of State supremacy when he says: "They insist that the United States is a Nation, with ample power of self preservation ; that its Constitution and the laws made in pursuance thereof are the su preme law of the land ; that the right of the Nation to determine the method by which its own legislature shall be created cannot be surrendered without abdicating one of the fundamental powers of government ; that the national laws relating to the election of rep resentatives in Congress shall neither be vio lated or evaded ; that every elector shall be permitted, freely and without intimidation, to cast his lawful ballot at such election and have it honestly counted, and that the potency of his vote shall not be destroyed by the fraudulent vote of any other person." TTia remarks concerning the condition of affairs in the South and the true remedy for the most serious evils which afflict that section are full of good sense. The more heed paid by the Southerners to the fact that "The prosperity which is made possible in the South by its great advantages of soil and cli mate will never be realized until every voter can freely and safely support any party he pleases," the better. General Garfield follows the platform closely in what he says concerning ed ucation, finances and the tariff. He thinks that whatever help the Nation can justly afford should be generously given to aid the States in supporting unsectarjan com mon schools, does not want the present pros perity of the country endangered by any vio lent changes or doubtful financial experi ments, and in regard to our customs laws would have a policy pursued "which will bring revenue to the treasury, and will en able the labor and capital employed in our great industries to compete fairly in our own markets with the labor and capital of foreign producers.'' He favors the improvement of harbors and rivers, especially of the Missis sippi. He is afraid of Chinese immigration. His endorsement of civil service reform is not hearty, though he thinks Congress should, without invading the authority or necessary discretion of the Executive, devise a method that will determine the tenure of office and greatly reduce the uncertainty which makes the civil service so unsatisfactory. This is all there is to the letter, which is able, temperate and clear throughout. It is not, however, bold or especially inspiring. THE MATTER WITH HAJVNA. June 11, 1880, Senator Brown, of Georgia, delivered a speech in which he said, among other things : "When you finally let us back into the Union, we, of course, had to assume our part of the expenses of the war on your side. In other words, in proportion to our means, we had to pay our part of the debt contracted for the support of the Union ar mies, and not only so, but we have to pay our part of the very large sum that is now an nually appropriated to pension Union sol diers, and I grudge not a dollar of it to them, for they were gallant men fighting for then honest convictions. On the other hand, I think you should sympathize with the poor maimed soldiers who on our side felt that they were fighting in as sacred a cause as yours, and believed they were right, and who can draw no pensions because they were on the weaker side. " Further on in his speech the Senator remarked that the South deeply de plored the fact that its soldiers had no pensions, and said that probably the only chance to pay something in return to the South for its losses would be to give pensions to the Confederates who had fought in the Mexican and Indian wars. " As one result of the speeches of Brown and other Democratic Senators upon the bill for pensioning Confederate Boldiers who had fought in the Mexican war, Bobert Hanna, a Confederate soldier who did not not fight in the Mexican war, seems to have grown hope ful of compensation for his sufferings for the Confederacy, and has sent to the Pension bureau an application for a pension. In this application is the following : I am the identical Bobert Hanna who was enrolled on the th day of August, 1801, in Company G of the Fifteenth regiment of South Carolina, Confederate States of Ameri ca, commanded by Captain McCntchen, and I was honorably discharged at Lynchburg, Va., on the 5th of February, 1805, and my age is now 38 years. While in the service aforesaid, and in the line of my duty, I received the f ol lowingdisability, to wit : I claim a pension on account of a wound of my right arm, re ceived October 19, 1864, which caused the arm to be amputated at the shoulder, and I am seriously disabled thereby. I was treated at Lynchburg Hospital. I have never been employed in the military or naval service of the United States. Since leaving the Con federate service I have resided in South Caro lina, and my occupation has been that of a stock herder. Before my entry into the ser vice aforesaid, I was of good, sound physical health, being at the time a farmer, and I . am now very much disabled from obtaining my subsistence by manual labor by reason of my disability above stated, and I make this dec laration for the purpose of being placed upon the invalid pension roll of the United States. I hereby appoint and empower with full power of substitution, Nathan W. Fitzgerald, of Washington, D. C, my true and lawful at torney to prosecute my claim. My postoffice address is Graham Cross Boads, County of Williamsburg, State of South Carolina. Mr. Hanna is in too much of a hurry. The party which will give him a pension, if he ever gets one, has not yet the power to do it, and his premature application will not help his case. A large majority of the people of the North still continue to draw the line at the payment of Southern war claims and pensions to Confederate soldiers. EDITORIAL NOTES. There is no hope for Cox. There was none for Mrs. Hull. - Ex-Senator Barnnm is kept at the head of the Democratic National Committee, which is a good thing for his party. The constitutional amendments which would have prevented the importation into Indiana of spare Kentucky Democrats were thrown overboard, and already reports eome that arrangements are being made to give the Indiana Democrats all the Eentuck ians they need. Total abstinence is not very fashionable, but it is a good thing for stage drivers, as the "accident" in the White Mountains by which one person was tilled and eight injured shows. i The Citizens' Association of Chicago has begun a crusade against the tug and steam boat whistle nuisance. If it is successful the popularity of Chicago as a summer resort wi)l greatly increase. General Beauregard has written an explan atory note to a New Orleans paper in which he says : "I do not concede that I was ever a 'rebel,' and, then, I cannot repent for a thing which my conscience does not reproach me for. The act of defending one's consti tntional rights, as we understood them, may have been untimely, unwise, or ill-advised, and we may regret it ; but we cannot be re pentant for it so long as we do not think that it was wrong per se." "It is a curious thing," writes the Washington correspondent of the Boston Herald, "that, although Hanoock is generally liked throughout the army, yet the feeling of the army as a whole is not in favor of his election. One reason is that a good many officers feel that it Is liable to injure the ser vioe to have pronmrent officers who are not at the head of the army taken up by rival political parties and put through the rough and tumble of a political campaign. It en genders criticism and disparagement of the entire service." The Hon. L. C. Honk, Bepublican member of Congress from Tennessee, takes a very hopeful view of the political situation in his State. He says that the Republicans expect to carry Tennessee this fall and will elect their candidate for Governor by a decided majority, together with the Presidential electors. He reports that they are freer and more confident than for years before and de termined to exercise their rights of suffrage. In the last Presidential election the Demo crats had a majority" in Tennessee of 43,600 in a total vote of 222,732, and Mr.,Houk's prediction seems a wild one. We have repeatedly pointed out that owing to the nature of the contest in this State no chances can be taken. Much depends on the State ticket. The Hartford Post has these wise words to say concerning the matter : "The principal question will be upon the re nomination of the present State officers, provided they are candidates. Since we have adopted the biennial system of election there is greater reason for rotation than before. The nominations two years ago were excep tional in one respect that the outlook did not encourage candidates, and some of the most available men would Vnot permit their names to be used. The gentlemen elected have afforded a most creditable administra. tion of public affairs in their respective de partments. But the situation as to nomina tions has greatly changed since the party met two years ago, and what was then only an experiment must be viewed with more ac curate judgment now. Let us have in the convention next month the best expression of the Republicans of every section. And in order to get it there should be an allow ance for all debatable propositions without offense. We must go into the campaign strong and united." Only thus have we any chance to succeed. B. G. Dun & Co.'s latest circular contains much that is interesting. The failures in the United States and Canada for the first half of 1880 were only 2,497 in number, with liabil ities, amounting to barely $ 33,000,000. These figures are much smaller than the agency has ever chronicled for the same period. The first six months of 1879 showed a remarka ble diminution the liabilities for that period being only $ 6.r,000,000 as against $130,000, 000 in the same period of 1878 or a lessened loss by bad debts of fully one-half. But it has been left for the first six months of 1880 to show a reduction of as great a ratio even on the,reduced figures of the previous year ; for the liabilities for the last half year are only $33,000,000 as compared with f 65, 000, 000 in 1879, and $130,000,000 in 1878. Thus for the first half of 1880, as compared with the first half of 1878, the loss by failures ap pears to be lessened by nearly $100, 000,000. For the second quarter of 1880 the failures number only 1,065, with liabilities of $20,000,000. These figures are encouraging, but, as the circular very properly points out, statistics of this nature cannot be relied upon as prophetic. "It would be unwise to ignore the existence of conditions of business which they do not in any degree illustrate. For instance, it is safe to say that for the next six months the chances of making money do not bear any comparison with the chances as they existed in the last six months of 1879. The circum stances of the two periods are almost precise ly reversed. At this time last year stocks of almost every product were small and values at a minimum ; at the present hour the re sults of stimulated production, largely in creased importation, and general activity, are seen in accumulations of goods and very uncertain values. The possibilities of making money, therefore, rest solely upon the slow and gradual absorption of goods by consump tion. The ability of the country to absorb, consume and pay for its requirements has never been greater ; and the- gains that are to be made are likely to be the result of legiti mate trade, rather than the quick profits which were realized last year from specula tive advances. Those who can afford to wait for this gradual realization of their profits will doubtless partieipate,in the general pros perity which exists, but it is painfully evident that there are many who are heavily weighted with merchandise bought at extreme prices, and whose profits even for the past year have been, or will be, pretty effectually extin guished by the settling in prices which is going on in almost every department of busi ness." Another element of uncertainty ex ists with regard to the prospects of the agri cultural class. If they have good crops and sell them for good prices money will of course be plenty. Close observers, however, view with considerable anxiety the possibility of a great decrease in the amount of money to be realized in the coming year from exporta tions.

Dear Father, thou art growing old ; The weight of nearly three soore years Across thy shoulders, fold on fold. Hath fallen, with both hopes and fears, Thy step hath slower grown, we know, Thy hair is chased with silver lines, The furrows mark thy thoughtful brow, And yet thine eye the truth deAnes. Thou art not old, thou art not young ; Thy harp of life is overstrung. Bear father, thou art growing old. And still thy spirit sings its song : Thy voice is raised fearless snd bold Against the tides of slu and wrong ; For weak, unsheltered ones each day Thy tender heart will pray and plead, .And oft beside thee on thy way Walk troubled hearts who have great need ; . Thou srt not old, thou art not young. For oh 1 thy harp is overstrung. In myBteries celestial versed, Thy wondrous knowledge and thy skill Unaided and alone thou nursed With an unceasing will. The light the old pine knots threw forth Illuminated many ways That led beyond thy father's hearth, Even to these thy later days Full many songs thy heart hath sung For oh 1 thy harp is overstrung. Thou hast not done the half, I know, Of all thst filled thy heart's desire. The centuries of mind move slow, Nor to all truthful things aspire. The thoughts that rise within thy heart, To freely fall from lip and pen, Will in the unborn hours take part And rest in silent peace with men. Thy tenderest songs must all be sung Because thy harp is overstrung. The judgment of our God is thine ; And when at last thy soul is free. Through ages of enduring time. Well understood thou'lt always be ; Drink in these later days the balm That hearts of love at home have given, And Bail on seas of blessed calm Clear to the waiting shores of heaven. And there thy songs shall all be sung And Btill thy harp be overstrung. How Snglisb Lawyers Grow Ricbt From the London Law Times. It is seldom that an English judge, upon the bench, condemns the excessive costs of litigation, and of legal proceedings generally, in this country. We would that it were done more often, hardly less in the interest of the profession than on public grounds. We hope that the strong but becoming language in which Lord Justice James recently condemn ed the enormous cost of litigation will not be lost upon our profession, and especially upon those members of it upon whom the respon sibilities of a seat in Parliament are now rest ing. Is it wise, we ask, for lawyers to try the experiment of leaving laymen, both in and out of Parliament, to cut down the cost of legal proceedings ? Is it not the duty of the legal profession itself to take up this question and apply the necessary remedies, some of which are already at hand ? Any sufficient, and therefore substantial, altera tions in legal procedure must necessarily affect large numbers of members of the pro fession; in some cases adversely, and in others to their advantage. Among the sources which give rise to costs, the incurring of which might often be avoid ed, the following may be mentioned : Plead ings, which practice the Judicature acts have to all intents and purposes preserved ; the central, instead of the local administration of justice ; the interests and privifeges of the bar ; the system by which solicitors' are re munerated ; the practice of judges in grant ing new trials ; the unnecessarily large fees of ten received by counsel, and allowed on taxation ; the scale of costs drawn with a dis tinct view of encouraging solicitors to em ploy counsel, instead of vice versa ; the de lay in dealing with the High Court of Jus tice ; the uncertainty of the law as at present administered, in the absence of a code, and in view of the enormous accumulation of case law, and by which litigation sometimes be comes little better than a gambling specula tion ; and finally, both branches of specula tive lawyers, who are a danger to society,and who include the black sheep of the profes sion. Horse-Racing iu England. tFrom the Edlnburg Review. . That horse-racing, largely fed by the gam bling element, to which it is on all sides ex posed, is increasing to an uncalled-for extent, becomes apparent from the turf statistics of 1879, although these are not in some respects so heavy as those of some preceding years, several of the more abject gate meetings hav ing been abandoned. It appears, however, that from February to November inclusive, a meeting held in January being also taken in to account, there were held 271 race meetings of all kinds. The number of stakes raced for was 2,020, and the meetings occupied in all 478 days of racing. The horses contend ing for the various prizes numbered 17,446, the same animal, however, taking part in many of the contests. In the two kinds of racing, flat racing and steeple-chasing, pro bably 2,500 different horses would run ; one horse ran thirty times in the course of the season, and many of the competitors on from 5 to 1G occasions. The value of the stakes raced for in 1870, including cups and plates, was not far short of half a million sterling, the largest amount paid at any meeting being at Ascot, where the stakes in money reached the handsome sum of 2U,017. The most valua ble race of the, year was the Derby, which ex ceeded by a trifling amount the sum of 7, 000, consisting of the money paid by the nam ers or owners of the horses. In the matter of the larger stakes the rac ing of 187!) gave to 16 noblemen and gentle men the chief profits, the total sum of their winnings being 166,463, or about a third part of the half-million sterling which has been mentioned. The largest amount won by any one of these gentlemen the result of 2!) races was 26,866, the lowest amount being 5,002. No winning account of less than 5,000 is included in the above compu tation, although there were probably 300 winners of sums varying from five thousand to fifty pounds. As regards the highest of the above amounts, it has been exceeded, we state, in some previous years; the largest winner in 1877-8, the same nobleman in both years,pocketing34,378 and 37,378 respec tively, whilst the value of the stakes won by him in 1879 was 23,528, and in the five years from 1875 to 1879 his total earnings amounted to 126,799. These sums repre sent the greater prizes of the turf. In 35 races in 1879 the stakes were over 1,000, in 11 the sums gained were over 2,000, and in three races over 6,000. The number of horses engaged in flat rac ing only in 1879 was 2,113, each of which, as has been already stated, ran one or more times ; the value of the stakes is represented at 380,699, being less than the amount pre viously given, which includes stakes for steeple-chasing. It can also be ascertained from the Calendar that the produce of 2,995 brood mares in 1879 added 1,855 youngsters to the racing stock of the country. The number of races run on the flat during the last five years has been as follows : In 1875, 1,909 ; 1876, 1,907; 1877, 1,639 ; 1878, 1,699 ; 1,879,1,626!; showing a considerable decrease since 1875. - No means exist by which the figures of turf gambling can be ascertained with any approach to perfect accuracy, but guesses of the extent to which the "speculation" is car ried on have been frequently hazarded. It has, for instance, been stated that a million sterling will change hands every year on the race course alone on half a dozen of the clas sic races, including the Two Thousand Guin eas, Derby b takes, the Uaks and bt. Leger. The State Railroad Commissioners will have no investigation into the accident at New London, fatal to President Lincoln of the Boston and Albany railroad, as no one wifh.es to make a complaint, or 'blames the managers of the road.
