JORE EVIDEIJCE Of the Success of Dr. Light hill's Practice in New Haven. the Treatment of Deafness, Catarrh and Diseases of the Throat and .Lungs. From Mr. J. II. Mehaffey, 367 Atwater Street. New Haven, August 20, 1880.' Permit me to add my testimony of Dr, LighthiU's skill and. success to that of Mr. Cox and others, as I have every reason to speak in terms of the highest praise of his successful efforts in my behalf. When a month ago I applied to him for relief I was a great sufferer. A catarrh which had af flicted me for some time past, recently be' came so aggravated that it impaired my hear ing and gave rise to such agonizing pain and distress in my head that it nearly drove me nsane. In fact, snch a result could scarcely have been otherwise if Dr. Lighthill had not afforded me such marvelously prompt relief; One treatment proved the efficacy of his method, for when I left his office I was in a condition of comfort and experienced the most inexpressible relief. That night I rest ed comfortably, and in the morning felt like a new man. Ever since then a steady im provement has taken place in my case, the most stubborn features yielding readily to Br. LighthiU's skillful management. The pain has entirely disappeared, my hearing is restored and a troublesome coughwhiih se riously alarmed my fryfenas, TS"1umot eVtSre ly gone. My whole system, fa rBctjsJf&een so much benefited that all my- acquaintances notice the favorable change. Like many oth ers, I had spent much money and time in fruitless efforts to obtain relief before I ap plied to Dr. Lighthill, and I can therefore reeoinmend the doctor with the confidence of a long experience. I am an employe of the Boston and Air Line Bailroad Company, and reside at 2G7 Atwater street, and will cheer fully substantiate in person what I have here put m writing. J. H. MEHAFFEY. From Mr. T. M. Cox, 85 St. John Street. New Haven, 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 ing creasing upon me it subjected me to serious inconvenience. One of Dr. LighthiU'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. LighthiU's repu tation is so weU 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 reUef. My happy experience of the results of Dr. LighthiU's efforts has taught me to appreci ate fuUy the value of specialties in medical practice, and I feel assured that a few min utes' conversation with Dr. LightniU wiU con vince the most skeptical of the fact that he is a master of his profession. T. M. COX. From the Rev. D. J. Clark, Pastor Congregational Church, East Ha ven, Conn. It affords me great pleasure to add my tes timony to that of others in favor of Dr. LighthiU's success in the cure of catarrh. H' treatment of my wife has proved so ben eficial that I cheerfuUy 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. LighthiU 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 phy sician so skillful as Dr. LighthiU in the treat ment of that troublesome disease, catarrh. D. 3. CLARK. For upward of twenty-five years Dr. Light hiU has been at the head of an extensive met ropolitan practice, devoted exclusively to the reUef 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. TTia recent discoveries are of the highest practical importance, render ing treatment so effectual that reUef 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 tures of 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 wiU inva riably be given jib 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. LighthiU's professional care may rest assured of receiving every ben efit guaranteed by science, wlrTO, sad an ex tensive experience.

T From his Address at Warren, Ohio.l J am a Republican a the two preat political parties are note divided, because the Republican pany u a nauonai party, seeang toe greatest good tor uw greatest number of citizens. There is not a precinct in tlds nasi Nation where a Democrat cannot east his ballot and have it counted as cast. No matter what the prominence of the opposite party, lie can pro claim his political opinions, even if hi is only oiteg among a thousand, with out rear ana without proscription on account of his opinions. There are 14 States and localities in some oilier States where Repub licans have not this privileqe. This is one rea son uohy I am a Republican. But I am a Re publican for many other reasons. The Repub lican party assures protection to life and prop erty, the public credit, an&tlie payment of the debts of the government, State, county or mu nicipality, so tar as it can control. The Dem ocratic party does not promise this; and if it does, it lias broken its promises to tlie extent of hundreds of millions, as many northern -Democrats can testify to their sorrow. I am a Republican as between the existing parties because the Repub lican party fosters the productions of the field and farm and of manufactories, and it en courages the general education of the poor as well as the rich. Tlie Democratic party discourages ail these, wlien in absolute pmcer. 1 he Repubbmn party is a party of progress ana of uaeratity toward its opponents. It encourages the poor to strive to better their condition, the ignorant.to educate their children, to enable them to compete successfully with their more fortunate associates, and, in fine, it secures an entire equality before the law oj every citizen, no matter what his race, na tionality or previous condition. It tolerates no privileged class. Every one has the opportuni ty to make himself all he is capable of. STILL HOPEFUL. General Hancock has declared that he wiU oppose the payment of southern claims if he is elected President, and the people of the North are invited to believe that his declara tion settles the matter, and mokes the evi dence that there is any danger in those claims a "RepubUcan bugbear." Meanwhile it is noticed that the remarks about the non-payment of southern war-claims are confined to the North, and never form any part of the political addressee in the South, or appear in the Democratic papers of that region. The southern peop'e have evidently no idea of burying those claims beyond resurrection for some time to come, and if they cannot get Hancock to help along their payment they wiU not despair. Thus the Macon (Georgia) Telegraph says : We cannot but indulge the hope that when we have helped to. extinguish the public debt, and time has healed the gaping wounds of the past ; when reason and brotherly love shall have fully regained the ascendency over prejudice and hate, even though it shall be in the next generation, a brave and honorable people of the same blood and lineage wiU see to it that the value of our property in slaves shall be returned to those from whom it was wrongfully wrested. It wiU do no harm to keep this question before the people, that they may preserve the records and proper memoranda of their former slaves, in the event that a returning sense of justice on the part of the federal government may compen sate them, at least in part, for the loss of this portion of their rightful property. It wiU be seen by this that the Telegraph does not agree with General Hancock as to any national statute of limitations, and that it extends the time beyond even the present generation, when the price of property in human flesh and blood may be demanded, and recommends that the people of the South keep their claims in readiness. As the Providence Journal says: "If it is now asked that for the sake of conciliation and brotherly love this nation should acquiesce without an endeavor at remedy, or even an allusion to it, that a portion of its citizens should be deprived of their rights of suffrage and representation, it is certainly not unrea sonable to expect that desire for harmony and good feeling, growing by what it feeds on, may ask to be made still further complete by payment for property 'wrongfuUy wrest ed' from a section which finds it both pleas ant and profitable to be conciliated. At any rate, we are told that this generation will not see the end of the expectation and demand, and it wiU certainly not grow less under the encouragement of a Democratic victory." The number of slaves liberated was four millions, and their estimated value was $,"00 per head, which would aggregate two thou sand millions, to say nothing of interest which might be demanded if the claimants were ever in a situation to take advantage of "the returning sense of justice" which they desire. , The way to really settle this matter, as weU as many other troublesome ones, is to defeat the Democratic party until it changes in character or breaks up. Until that time southern claims will continue to be some thing more than a "Republican bugbear. " THE! SULTAN'S PLAN. President Washburn of Robert College, Constantinople, who is now in this eountry, has. given a 'very interesting explanation of the present attitude of the Turkish govern ment toward the parties to the Berlin treaty. The reigning Saltan, he says, is absolutely resolved not to comply with the demands made upon him by that settlement df the Eastern question. The ground of his deter mination is this : As no one expected when his education was begun that he would ever be raised to the head of the empire, his train ing was strictly ecclesiastical and religious, the consequence of which is that he is a gen uine bigot in his faith and spirit. When created Sultan he assumed at once the role of a propagandist, and has devoted himself un ceasingly and efficiently to the fostering of a fanatical temper among .he Mohammedans. The especial spur to this poUcy, so consonant to his feelings, is the ambition to make the head of the Turkish empire the real spiritual head of Islamism throughout the East. ' In itself he cares little for his political and secu lar power. But as an essential to the carry ing out of his scheme of sacred and sacer dotal headship, he wiU cling to it to the last gasp. This supremacy has been conceded to the Sultans since the taking of Constantino ple, but for fifty years past the concession has been more nominal than effective, owing to the increasing feebleness of the govern ment of these rulers. A plan has been on foot among the Arabian Moslems to transfer the spiritual supreme power of that religion to Mecca. If the Turk fails to sustain him self against the demands of the European courts now pressing him closely, that move ment wiU be effected, and Constantinople wiU permanently lose its position as the center of the Mohammedan faith and authority. Hence the fresh outcrop of intolerant, persecuting zeal under the eye and furtherance of the Sultan, which has caused tke murder of thousands of Christians within a few years ; and if this plan of his is successful, Christi anity will "be exterminated so far as bloody persecution can effect this catastrophe. Emissaries have been sent throughout the Moslem world to assure these religionists that the Sultan is able to hold his own against the provisions of the Berlin treaty, in proof of which assertion the fact that he has already held the parties to the treaty at bay for over two years is cited. The Arabs, Hindoos and other Moslems are waiting with intense inter est to see the result, as the last probation they will give to the Sultan's claim of spir itual headship over them. If they shall be convinced that he can make good his defiance of western Europe, they wiU raise the green banner of their prophet and rush to his sup port by millions. It wiU be a religious war with a vengeance. Of course the Sultan can not resist a real effort by the allied powers to enforce the treaty, and if it is enforced Mr. Washburn thinks the outcome wiU be the transfer of the spiritual headquarters of Islamism from Seraglio Point to Mecca, and the not distant partition and subversion of the Turkish empire. EDITORIAL NOTES. Reports from all parts of the State are very encouraging to the Republicans. There is genuine enthusiasm, the meetings everywhere are largely attended, and on all hands shown a determination to keep the State in the RepubUcan column in November. The latest exhibition of the enterprise which is characteristic of the Hartford Post is the issue of a supplement containing ex ceUent portraits of the RepubUcan nominees for State officers and of the Republican nominees for Congressmen, fuU and accurate sketches of the lives of these nominees, and a large quantity of good campaign matter. It is an exceUent piece of work. It is significantly observed that while the annual production of the American silk fac tories hai reached a total of $30,000,000, the importations of foreign silk goods for the last fiscal vear reached $32,000,000. The question now is, shaU the domestic industries be crushed out by the aboUtion of the pro tective duties and the flooding of the country with enormous quantities of foreign goods, or shall the American mills obtain the com mand of the home market ? Said one of the most prominent manufactu rers of Connecticut a day or two since : ' 'I wish all the workingmen in the State could have overheard a conversation which I had yester day with an English manufacturer. After show ing him through our mills I inquired what was the English price for the same class of work. He repUed : 'About twelve shillings a week.' This is about fifty cents a day, while the price here is from three to four times as much." H the workingmen want low wages and Uttle work, let them vote for a tariff for revenue only." The first of the "October elections" wiU take place in this State next Monday, when town officers wiU be ehosen. Neither of the two great parties will, however, be much elated or depressed by the result, and the stocks bought and sold in Wall street will not be seriously affected. In addition to the elec tion of town officers a constitutional amend ment is also to be voted on, giving the gov ernor the nomination of judges for the high er courts. These judgeships have hitherto been at the disposal of a party caucus, but it is hoped that the governor wiU be less Uable to yield to mere partisan considerations. An arbitrary use of the one-man power is also guarded against by requiring both branches of the Legislature to approve the governor s choice. It is a pity that aU the southern newspa pers are not as bold and sensible as the Vicksburg (Miss.) Herald. A Mississippi newspaper having tried to extenuate ine State's act of repudiation years ago, the Herald examines the plea and concludes that "those people who would defend the course which bequeathed us this stain have under taken one labor greater than all the seven done by Hercules." It also says: "The first thing that ever riveted our attention to this repudiation was when a rich planter, in whose honesty we had every confidence, asserted that he would wiUingly pay double his amount of the tax necessary to pay the inter est and a sinking fund to finaUy wipe out the stain against the State. He declared vehe mently that he never left the State that he was not stung to madness by allusions to it. These remarks put us to reflecting." , The Republican State committee of Michi gan has issued a stirring address congratu lating the people of the State upon its long and prosperous career under RepubUcan ad ministrations, appealing to them to send a unanimous RepubUcan delegation to the next Congress, and proudly saying : "As a party we have no apology to make ; we do not fight on the defensive ; we are confident of suc cess, and our confidence is based upon the knowledge that we are right. We recognize with grateful . sensibUity the extraordinary prosperity now prevaiUng among aU the busi ness interests of the country, Insuring remu nerative employment to labor, markets to manufactures and produce, profit to com merce, and a hopeful future to every branch of industry. No period since the republic was formed has offered such boundless as surances of success to thrift as the present, and it would be the wildest foUy to disturb this magnificent prospect by intrusting the Government to a party that has no de fined ideas of legislation in either finance or commerce." A correspondent of the Boston Transcript calls attention to the remarkable fact that there is now Uving within forty miles of Bos ton a gentleman, in the f uU possession of his mental and physical faculties, who well re members a contemporary of passengers who came In the Mayflower, when she landed the Pilgrims in 1620. The gentleman referred to is Mr. William Thomas, bom in Plymouth, March, 1789. He weU remembers Ebenezer Cobb, who was born in Plymouth in 1694, and Uved to the age of 107 years, 8 months and 6 days, dying in 1801. Ebenezer Cobb was five yeaqs old at the death of Mary (AUer ton ) Cushman, the daughter of Isaac Allor ton, one of the Mayflower pagrims, and her self one of the 101 persons who sailed from Southampton. She was eleven years old when she landed at Plymouth, and she died in 1699, at the age of ninety. It is not said that Ebe nezer Cobb remembered Mrs. Cushman, but he did distinctly remember Peregrine White, who was born on the Mayflower in Cape Cod harbor, and described his funeral as he saw it, himself a boy of ten, in 1704. The astronomer of the Providence Journal writes under the Heading "Great Storm in the Sun :" 4 'Observers of the sun found indi cations of intense commotion on the 11th, 12th and 13th of August. . The sun-spots were numerous, large and active, and protu berances shot up their rose-eolored tongues with increased force and velocity from the surface. The earth made instantaneous re sponse to the solar storm. A magnetic dis turbance gttddanly commenced, accompanied by an unusual exhibition of earth-currents The magnetic variations were frequent and large, and the earth-currents continuous and strong. It is years since the Greenwich Ob servatory has recorded magnetic disturbances of equal magnitude, and it sends forth a timely warning to telegraph engineers, and especiaUy to those concerned in laying sub marine cables, that earth-currents may now become frequent, as compared with the qui etest of recent years. A superb exhibition of aurora accompanied the magnetic disturbance. An observer at the Stoneyhurst Observatory describes it as recalling the magnificent dis plays of 1869, '70 and '71, while the play of the magnets was one of the mott violent ever recorded at that observatory. The au roral display was extensively observed in England and Scotland. One observer describes it as an outburst of streamers, appearing like wavy, swaying curtains from the zenith to near the horizon, with the loveliest green tints near the zenith. Another writes that the streaks extended from horizon to zenith, the color being principally pale blue with a reddish tinge. Another paints the display as a brUliant band of white Ught, fol lowed by streamers, each streamer fading away before the succeeding one became very bright. StiU another re cords a glowing celestial picture of the north ern horizon skirted by a bright white haze, terminating in an Ul-defined arch, from which sprang a large number of broad streamers, stretching towards the zenith. The same phenomenon was seen by American observ ers, although it did not receive the attention bestowed upon it by European observers. It is evident, however, that the epoch of grand auroras and magnetic storms has returned, and that our northern skies for months to come wiU probably be lighted with auroral flames. HARMONIZKRS.

To the Editor of the Journal and Courier : About the year 182G this bank failed and caused a great financial panic throughout the whole State. A considerable amount of the funds of Yale College were invested in the institution, and the college barely weathered the embarrassment resulting from the loss. The president of the bank was George Hoad ley. Mr. Hoadley was Mayor of New Haven, . and after the failure went to Cleveland, Ohio, and there became Mayor of that city. He married a sister of President Woolsey of Yale CoUege. His son at one time was a pre siding judge in Ohio, and was at one time in partnership with . Chief 3 ustice Chase. A few months prior to the closing up of the bank, two men residing m Litchnelu county committed forgery on the bank. One was arrested, found guilty and sentenced to the Connecticut State prison for the term of ten years. The other left the State and .escaped punishment. During my research of names, dates-- and historical matter for a genealogi cal work, some two years ago, I found that he too had located in Ohio. Sometime during the year 1865 the old house in which one of the above-named par ties resided was removed to give place to a modern structure, and while the workmen were thus engaged they found a small roU of paper in a mortise, which was carefully ex amined and found to be eight three-doUar bills on the Eagle bank. New Haven. One of the bUls the writer has in his possession. This note was dated December 1st, 1818. The workmanship, although good for those times, shows, when compared with a modern green back, great progress in the art of bank note engraving within the last fifty years. A Child's Lonely Grave. From Sarah O. Jewett's "Autumn Holiday," in the October Harper's. That afternoon I found something I had never seen before a Uttle grave alone in a wide jlasture which had once been a field. The nearest house was at least two miles away, but by hunting for it I found a very old cellar where the child's home must have been, not very far off, along the slope. It must have been a great many years ago that the house had stood there; and the small slate head-stone was worn away by the rain and wind, so there was nothing to be read, if indeed there had ever been any letters on it. It had looked many a storm in the face, and many a red sunset. I suppose the woods near by had grown and been cut and grown again, since it was put there. There was an old sweet-brier bush growing on the short Uttle grave, and in the grass underneath I found a ground spar row's nest. It was like a Uttle neighborhood. I have felt ever since as if I belonged to it; and I wonder then if one of the young ground sparrows was not always sent to take the nest when the old ones were done with it, so they came back in spring year after year to Uve there, and there were always the stone and the sweet-brier bush and the birds to remember the chUd. - It was such a lonely place in that wide field under the great sky, and yet it was so comfortable too ; but the sight of the Uttle grave at first touched me strangely, and I tried to picture to myself- the procession that came out from the house the day of the funeral and I thought of the mother in the evening after all the people had gone home, and how she missed the baby, and kept seeing the new grave out here in the twilight as she went about her work. I suppose the f amUy moved away, and so aU the rest were buried else where. ' I often think of this place, and I link it in my thoughts with something I saw once in the water when I was out at sea ; a Uttle boat that some child had lost, that had drifted down the river and out to sea; too long a voyage, for it was a sad Uttle wreck, with even its white sail Of a hand-breadth half under water, and its twine rigging trailing astern. It wasasiUy Uttle boat, and no loss, except to its owner, to whom it had seemed as brave and proud a thing as any ship of the line to you and me. It was a shipwreck of his small hopes,I suppose, and I can see it now, the toy of the great winds and waves, as it floated on its way, while I sailed on mine, out of sight of land. The Uttle grave is forgotten by everybody but me. I think the mother must have found the chUd again in heaven a very long time ago, but in the winter I shaU wonder if the snow has covered it weU, and next I shaU go to see the sweet-brier bush when it is in bloom. God knows what use that life was, the grave is such a short one, and nobody knows whose Uttle child it was ; but perhaps a thousand people in the world to-day are better because it brought a Uttle love into the world that was not there before.
