COMMUNICATIONS. Mope and Marlu—No. 2. Ίο the Editor qf the Pre»»: My last letter (and first) left me in a shower near Lake Champlaiu. A tine sun set afterward gave us a magnificent ride across the northern portions of this lake by bridges kabout leu miles in length, to Kousis Point. Across the lake southwestward, the Adirondac mountains look hazy iu the dis tance, and the nearer view showed the charm ing lake surface, dotted here and there with sailing vessels and steamers, while on our right, as we reach the New York shore, is the new Fort Montgomery, in process of erec tion. The wirk is well advanced and looks formidable. May no occasion arise through the folly of John Bull's advisers—or brother Jonathan's—for its thunders to disturb their peaceful waters. From House's Point we begin our directly western progress. We see enough of our surroundings, as we pass by moonlight to Oe densburg, to discover that we are passing over a level territory similar to that which Ijorders the St. Lawrence as you approach Montreal by the Grand Trunk. A portion of the coun try is cultivated, more of it is new, and bears all the marks W being recently settled. At Ogdensburg we cross tbe St. Lawrence by moonlight, and And ourselves transferred to the Grand Trunk at midnight. We make au experiment in the sleeping car, and roll and swelter three or four hours, preferring at day light the better air and prospect of another car. We reach Toronto at 10 o'clock, after a magnificent morning ride, along the north ern shore of Lake Ontario, over a portion of Canada's most productive soil. I make but little note of towns and places. The railroad, berc as elsewhere, fails to give you the best view* of the settlements. But some of these towns are well settled and thrifty in appear ance ; developed and built up by the lake com merce and the -new facilities of tbe Grand Trunk. Toronto is a fine city. The Universi ty buildings and the Normal School editice are elegant structures, as remembered from a former visit. The exigencies of the day forbid any delay to look about at this time. Pressing on through dust and heat, a hundred and sev enty miles farther to l'ort Sarnia, we pass through immense forests of timber and fields of wheat; most of the grain ripe for the har vest much earlier, 1 am told, than usual. At Port Sarnia we part with a large party of New England teachers, who at this point take a steamer for Chicago, by way of Lakes Huron and Michigan. The question with your cor respondent is not easy to decide, whether to follow his ticket with the excursion and spend three or four days on the lakes, going some 800 miles around the State of Michigan, or to go across, by way of Detroit, a distance of 300 miles. Ue elects the land route, thus hoping to see more of the towns and institutions of that beautiful peninsula. Leaving the company, Saturday evening finds him in Detroit, a beau tiful city on the connecting waters of Huron and Erie, sufficiently elevated above the water level to give it good draiuage and a pleasant outlook. A stranger in a strauue citv. I was fortunate enough to encounter at my hotel a former ac quaintance from Maine, Dr. Noyes of Water villc, who has been here for a short liine In ] successful practice of eye and ear treatment. My good fortune gave me also au introduction to Thomas ltomeyu, Esq., a prominent lawyer of the city, whose kind attentions, coupled with those of his accomplished wile and daugh ter, contributed much toward the pleasure of ray two days iu Detroit. On the Sabbath 1 found myself Invited in different directions, by the soaud of the church-going bell. The ser vices at Hev. Dr. Dufiicld'e church consisted mainly ol addresses, by lie v. Messrs. Chidlaw and McAuley, la behalf of the Christian Com mission. These geutlemcu have spent much time in the armies of the I'otomac and the j Cumberland, ministering to their physical and spiritual necessities. Their statements and appeals were therefore based u|ion th« right grounds to produce a most telling effect. They spoke again ii the evening to a vast audience in the hall of the Young Men's Association, producing a powerful conviction of the great value of this Commission as a ministeriug agency in the army. With Dr. Noyes visited the residence of Major Lewis Cass, former Consul at Rome, to examine his very exten sive and valuable collection of paintings, sta tuary, and other objects of art. collected in Italy and elsewhere abroad. Nearly every room on the floor of the bouse, (late his fath er's family mansion) is filled with the Costly and rare productions oi art. Time failed us in the examination ; much more would it in description. , The Major himself is an invalid, and excus ed himself after opening these art-treasures to our examination. The General, his father, still vigorous in his old age, lives at present with a daughter in the city; devoting himself to the care of Ills accumulated millions, and praying for the peace of his Jerusalem—the country which he has served so long; a peace through the submission of the rebels, not through the weak yielding of the north to the haughty demands of southern demagogues. May he live to see the day. Among the substantial evidences of the in telligence and prosperity of Detroit, are the numerous large and fine structures for school purposes. Public schools and private seminaries do here abound. Most of these are now closed for vacation. Among the estab lishments which I visited, is the "Academy of the Sacred Heart," a Catholic conventual school, conducted by sisters of that order. The premises are spacious and elegant—the sisters In black robes and broad plaited [night caps, cheerful in their work, domestic nd in tellectual—and are doing good service, we doubt not, In training many orphan children gratuitously, for respectability in life, while their school for the childreu of the wealthy, gives them the means of conducting their charitable enterprise.

AFTER suffering sixteen years, and trying every· thing that could be fouiid in the market recom mended for that complaint, without tind ng any re lief, the inventor of this comnouud thought he would try an experiment, and finally succeeded in finding a remedy that has effected a permanent cure. After waiting four years for the purpose ot ascertaining whether the cure was perfect, and not having had the slightest touch of it during that time, he then j advertised It iu the Bath Times for one ν ear. Since ι it·, introduction it has proved itosll to be nt beel rem· edv over brought before the public for this complaint. It is made of different things that grow in the I fields and pastures,that are good for any one to take, i It has been takeu by children but three yean old, and from that up to people of seventy years, and has effected λ cure in almo*t nv#rv <<··«« a..»*..» I are troubled with other complaints in connection with this. ||d be dflM not claim that thi·* îm-dicine will euro every disease that people are subject to, but those troubled with the Tiles need not de<i»air. Many who have been troubled with the Tiles but a few years, have been eared by the use of a single bottle; hut for tho«e who have had the disease in their blood twenty or thirty years, it will require more. This medicine has been taken by hundreds iu the city of Hath and its vicinity, and has proved to be the REST RE Μ Ε l) Y ever discovered for the above complaint. It is got up expressly for the Tiles, but for Inflammation of the Bowels it is second to none. < The inventor, wishing to send it to other cities and - towm· to let the people satisfy themselves of its heal- ! in* and cleaning virtues, has been at the expense ot j securing a patent.
