ESDAT, SUTEBIBCR 2. [...] Recreations During the Coming Winter. It is certainly yery flattering to oar na tional vanity and consoling in the midst of oar many afflictions, to know thut tb "arts of peace'' flourish aa well as the arti of war. In all our cities and larger (.own there is evidence of this in the fact thai the people have provided for ihemseives r course of lectures during the present wir ter. Such a thing as a series of litsnm lectures is probably unknown in robpldon: from Richmond to the Kio Grande. Ther- the business of the whole people id war. They have neither time nor disposition for anything else. In the North, however, industri J and literary pursuits go on briskly asfver. War is only incidental. Of its actual horrors, we scarcely know any thing. ! It is certainly gratifying to remember this, and mggests the idea whether - even more of wholesome, rational enjoyment would not serve to release the public mind from the constant strain and anxiety which attend the war even here in the 2ff)rlh. Are there not hundreds of towns and vil lages where something might be ', done during the coming winter, to render Hie less monotonous than it will otherwise bo ? In many places, in most places, we; may truly say, the young men have so generally gone into the army, that there is not thf.t public spirit or those rational entertain' menu which were abundant before the war. In many places, the only opporttin ty for coming together, is afforded on: Sun day. Lectures, "singing-schools, i the traveling panorama, or family of "sweet sineers," are almost unknown. The weeks drag out their weary length from Decern. ber to March, in many places in the inril districts with nothing to relieve the mind or body in their tread mill round of duties. This bus been so heretofore more than it will be during the coming winter. The young must tecessa nly be among the leading spirits in ' pro viding entertainments for the people- and already there is a class of young men and women who at the beginning of the war were mere "boys and girls" that can do much to bring new life into many tilaens that herotoforo were rendered almost desolate, "We see no leason why lyceums, and lectures could not be introduced into every village and town in the State. AH that is necessary is that a few leading men shall take hold of the work. It may not be pos sible to obtain "first class" lecturers for whom from fifty to one hundred dollars per night must be paid. Bat there are in all communities, especially on the Western Beserve, men who are competent to lecture with as much profit and interest to their hearers, as Emerson or Beecher can to theirs. There are men in every commu nity, wounded or discharged from the ar my, whocan tell an experience that in many cases, is both thrilling and instructive. There are also professional men that might be obtained for a small compensation to deli ver occasiona 1 lectures on some im portant subjects. Nor has there ever been a time when more important subjects for debate might be considered than now. Tie times abound with them. By a week- ly discussion of the subjects affecting the welfare of the nation, much very valuable and important truth would be elicited and all citisens would be better prepared tn act wisely their part in the great events still impending over us. But in addition to inch literary recreations, there might easily be organ- iced "reading circles." Let a number of persons, from twelve to thirty, meet at ap pointed places and on appointed evenings, to listen to selected readings and conversa tions tbereon. But above all these sources of literary recreations we would place the newspaper. Many an hour, otherwise tedious and un profitable, could be spent in the careful reading cf a high-toned family newepaper. It is a shame for any intelligent citizen to plead poverty as an excuse for not furnish ing his family with the daily or weekly journal. The? are times when, to be ig norant of the great events transpiring, is to be criminally guilty. In addition to this, a newspaper in the family is one of the surest methods of cultivating a taste im reading among the children of the household. We make these general suggestions with the hope that they may stimulate many of our readers to a stronger desire for those intellectual and literary recreations that are within the reach of almost every com munity. A little onergy, a little public spirit, and the arts ef peace may flourish in yosr midst, and a great many minds and hearts be relieved of the terrible pressure which constant brooding over this unhappy war is calculated to produce. The Tri-partite Division of Rebeldom. By the capture of itilledgeville and the railroad south of that point, the dominions of Jeff Davis are again practically divided. By the opening of the Mississippi, the re gion west of it was isolated from the coun try east, and rendered the problem of final ly subjugating the the rebels more simple. Since then two great railroad lines have bound the Atlantic to the Gulf states; the line from Richmond to Memphis via Knox vivlle, and the line running from Vicks burg to Charleston. The possession cf of East Tennessee has for some time given us the control of the first line. The seizure of Macon, Mil len or the Savannah river gives the control of the second, and practically divides the Confederacy into two more parts. Mobile and Montgomery have, to-day, no railroad connection with Richmond. By thus dividing the task of conquering is rendered more easy. Sepa rated for any length ot time from the head quarters at Bichmond, there is no opportu nity for such revolutions to take place in the popular feeling as have been manifest ed in Missouri and Arkansas. Bichmond is also cut off from the very important base of supplies which is found in central and northern Georgia. Herein we have the tri-partite division of Bebeldom into the eastern, middle and western sections, with all the consequences that may flow therefrom. East Tennessee. Brownlow's Knoxville Whig (psaks en couragingly of the state of affairs in Upper East Tennessee. It says Breckinridge's men are only making hard beds for their friends in that section, for he cannot main tain his position, and after he leaves, his friends will have to pay the damages. The Oil Fever. This fever, if rightly managed, unlike most of fevers, may be a very excellent thing for it victims. It is a fever which doesnot lay you out, bed-ridden, in a con dition of boiling blood and seething brain. You need not the horrid pills and powders, great and small, of the medical school to cure you. On the contrary, it puts new vigor into the system. Legs, that in a city need the aid of street cars, suddenly become gifted with the locomotive energy of Brobdignag himself. They now, with splendid energy, scour all the nooks, creeks and gullies of Pennsylvania, Can ada, West Virginia, Kentucky or Ohio, The mind, from being dull and plodding, becomes lubricated so that all its wonder ful systems of wheels and pullies, play with magical energy. The eyes, hitherto dull and vacant, become lighted up as from inward conflagrations. There is a wild glare of feverish energy about them which indicates that the whole man is thoroughly aroused and spurred on by the '.rongest passion of the soul, the love of money. Brains hither to phlegmatic, beeome suddenly lu minous with manifold schemes and plana, for dredging the Pactolian waters. Then, too, may you enjoy the supreme bliss of anticipation on a tremendous scale. It is easy to look down a perfectly dark hole. six hundred feet deep, listen to the bub bling gas, and see a fortune of a million, at least. Tou can enjoy, over and over, the swAAt delusion that you are among the financial nabobs of the land, and dispense, in fancy, thousands of shining dollars to your lriends and the poor. Magnificent palaces, royal steeds in splendid vehicles, foreign travol, books and the line arts, are ministering to you already, as you see financial glory awaiting you in the dis tance. IndeeJ, it is a sweet disease to have. It puts marrow in the bones, oxy gen in the blood, phosphorus in the brain and electricity in the nerves. It disrobes poverty of its grimness, makes present suffering durable in view of the far more exceeding weight of bullion in the miad's eye, Horatio." The oil fever is a good thing to take. We know it. We have had it. We ad vise our readers to take it. Have oil on the brain. Have it in wells. Have it in lands. Have it in stocks. Have it in banks. We assure you it is a pleasant disease. Dedication Services at Mount Union. On Thursday next, at one P.M., the new edifice of Mount Union College will be dedicated. Hon. S. P. Chase will de liver the dedicatory address. The occa sion will be one of great interest to the friends of the college as well as to the friends ot education in general. Mount union College is under the patronage of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Mr. Chase has also agreed to speak in the evening on the "Prospects of our Country." The Proposed Society for Young Men. We call particular attention to the card of the Rev. J. H. Rylance. The project in contemplation is certainly deserving the consideration of every young man in Cleveland. Much profit and pleasure will ensue to all who will unite in carrying forward an earnest literary association. Letter Form Washington. Thanksgiving in the Hospitals---The Pilgrim Fathers at a Premium---Davis Thanksgiving Kept in Baltimore and Washington---Personal Items. Wabwhotoh, D. C, November 25, 1864. Deab Lsadkb: Thanksgiving Day in Washington met with very general obser vation, end was marked by an entire ces sation of business and by interesting serv- cesintre churches. The various depart ments were closed, and no government bu siness was transacted except suoh as was absolutely necessary for the public welfare. It was a glad day at the hospitals, and no sick or wounded soldier in them all failed to get his Thanksgiving dinner. All hon or to the noble States of Ohio, New York, Massachusetts, for the patriotic liberality of her citizens, bo pre-eminently displayed in furnishing to our brave boys, in camp and hospital, the fostivities of home. .' This reverence for Thanksgiving Day, tke genial glory of New England and her sons and daughters everywhere, is a new thing in this Capitol. Mr.Lincoln is the first President who over made a Thanks giving proclamation. Before his day, the poultry tribe flourished here throughout the month of November, and Washing tonians and their turkey strutted : the streets, upon the great anniversaryj in profound contempt of the Pilgrim Fathers. But now all una is changed. The Pilgrim Fathers are in good repute in the best soci ety, and gallinaceous life is considered precariouB. Not all Waahingtm, howev er was festive upon the 2tb of November. It is well known that Wednesday, the 16th inet, being the day appointed by Jefferson Davis tor inanssgiving in the rebel States, was enthusiastically celebrated in certain circles in this city and Baltimore, instead or the day set apart by the President while such exhibitions of sympathy with treason are passed by by the Government in silence, iet its enemies not prate about "arbitrary arrest." 11 the friends of the rebellion can derive any hope or comfort from the present state of aflairs. let them erjoy the pitiful delusion. The Govern ment can afford to indulge their folly so long as it proceeds no further than the dis cussion of viands and the drinkinfe of champagne. The President and Mrs. Lincoln attend ed Thanksgiving services at the New York Avenue Presbyterian church, their 'cus tomary plice of worship. An eloquent and able discourse was delivered by the pastor, tne xwev. ur. wuriey. An exceed ing appropriate and patriotic sermon was preached by the Bev. T. B. Howlett at the Calvary Baptist church. This gentleman is well known in Cleveland, and his friends there will be glad to hear of his popularity and success in this city. The church with which ho is connected, has been greatly prospered under his care, and he is eminent among the clergy of the city, not only for his ability as a preacher, but also for his outspoken loyalty to the Government and to free principles. Several of the leading Washington divines are known td be strongly Southern in their sympathies. The city is full of rumors as to chahges in the Cabinet, and new lists of its mem bers that are to be, are reported every day. It is now supposed that no changes will be made till after the meeting of Congress, in order that all the Secretaries may have time to prepare their annual reports to that body. I Members are coming in rapidly, and as the approaching sessien must or necessity be short, it will doubtless bejeorres ponding lively and interesting. H. B. Spelman, Esq., of Cleveland, is stopping at the National Hotel. The weather here is clear, cold and COLUMBIA. NOTES FROM ABROAD. NOTES FROM ABROAD. London----Its Sine and Population---- Rapid Growth and Magnificent Seale of Its Improvements. From the Detroit Advertiser and Tribune. LONDON, Sept. 23, 1864. Were seven objects to be selected as es pecially the wonder of the Nineteenth cen tury, I am sure London would bo placed among them for immensity. Fancy four such cities as New York, 24 such as Chics go or St. Louis, or 50 such as Detroit placed side by side, and you have a population equal to that of the metropolis of England. .It would nearly equal also, the entire pop ulation or Michigan tafcen four times over. But after all, when we reckon by millions, the mind can have very little conception of numbers. Perhaps I can convey a bet ter idea by attempting to describe the ground it covers. I have before me a map extending over four miles in eveiy direc tion from Charing Cross an area of iorty square miles, and yet this embraces only the densely populated portion, and does not include suburban districts, which are as much a part of London as Oharlestown or Cambridge are parts of Boston, and which certainly extend over a radius of at least ten miles. But even the space cov ered by any map embraces not fewer than seventeen thousand streets. The difficulty in finding nemos for theui all is evidenced in there being no less than 8 Albest streets, 27 Charles streets, 17 Church streets, 14 Duke streets, 19 George streets, 16 High streets, 19 James street, 26 John streets, 24 King streets, 14 North streets, 16 Prince streets, 22 Queen street-, 17 William streets, 16 York streets, etc, saying nothing of the Albert Places, Al bert Roads, Albert Terraces, Albert Squares, and like changes on each of the other names of the list. So perplexing had London become to the Postotfice de partment in the delivery of letters, that it has lately been divided into ten districts, each a city of near 300,000 inhabitants, and severally designated as London E. C , (East Central), London W. C, (West Central), London W, London N. W, London and so on. THE CITY PROPER. "The city," as it is called in London, comprises only that portion included with in the ancient walls, or but a very small fraction of the London of the present day This portion alone is under the jurisdic tion of the Lord Mayor, the remainder being governed as to the streets, provision for poor, lighting, local taxes, etc., by the boards of vestrymen of the several par ishes. Police matters are regulated by the Board of Commiwsoners appointed by the Government, and protection against fire is left mainly to the volunteer direction of the several insurance companies. Rather a divided and precarious slate of govern ment for go large a place, is it not ? Yft somehow everything seems to work smoothly. But I was going to speak of "the city;" and here let me caution your readers if they should ever visit London not to speak of London as a whole as a city. It is not a city at all, and they will only find themselves misunderstood if they to designate it. The city, as I said before, is but a small affair, I am told, not numbering 8,000 or 10,000 resident inhabitants. In short, it is nothing more than a huge market plac, or exchange, teeming with life ana busi ness during business hours, but almost entirely deserted during the remainder of the twenty-tour. its numerous pan -u churches would accommodate its popula tion many times over, and nave become mere neglected halls where once a week a prosy parson goes through the form ot reading a sleepy sermon to a tew aozn sleenv Dew occupants. One entire parish, which in old times was presumed to fur nish a porjumion suthcient to nil and sun port a church, is now exclusively occupied by the extensive buildings of the Bank of Kneland. 1 do not Know wnetner tne bank goes through the formality of annu allv eluding a board of vestrymen and otherwise administering the affairs of its parish, but presume it does. THE STREETS OF LONDON. Perhaps no better idea of the immense populace and traffic of London can bta gained than that we gather in a ride out side an omnibus, say from London bridge to Channe Cross through r ieet street ana the Strand, or to tne West End by way of Cheapside, Newgate street and iioiborn. These are the two leading thoroughfares running through London from East t West The omnibuses carry from 26 to 40 passengers, the majority of them riding on top, which is flitted up with a seat run ning down the middle, on which the passen gers sit back to back. You need never wait more than a minute or two for an omnibus to pass, and generally there are two or three all going the same direction, one immediately afterthe other. Todrive an omnibus or -any vehicle through the crowdtMi streets requires no little skill, to say nothing of an pen eye. The side waits are perfectly black with a living struggling mass. A vehicle stops and in Btaniiy there is a jam. You look back and before the cause has existed lor threy seconds all is at a stand-still as far as the crooked streets will permit the view. At many points a nandtull ot policemen is kept on duty the whole time, and no light task do they have either, merely rogula ting the traffic of the thoroughfare. Cross ing a street even is a matter of extreme difficulty, insomuch that a scheme is on foot for bridging the principal streets at frequent intervals, for the sole convenience of pedestrians. IMPROVEMENTS AND CHANGES. We suppose out West that only Chicago and a few other western cities, are doing anything extensive in the growing way, but we must come to London to see rapi.t and growing improvement. The city (proper and improper) is just now undego- ing an entire build. Acres of old struc tures, includingsome of sucb magnificence as the old East India House, on Leaden hall street, are being demolished in every quarter to make way for new thorough fares, new railway stations, gigantic hotels and vast blocks of stores and offices, all on the very grandest scale. The old building, we are tola, will not let, so aown they come, and up rsies a galatial stone edifice, as the saying is, "with all the modern im THE LONDON SEWERAGE. Most of our readers have heard for years past of the terribly pointed condition of the Thames, growing out of the drain age of all the filth of the city into it. So alarming did the evil become at last, that there were serious apprehensions felt cf its producing a pestilence, and the attention of the Government was loudly called to its removal. After much discussion it was resolved to construct an immenae sewer along the river bank, emptying itself into the stream at the ebb of tne tide, far below London. The necessary elevation was to be secured by pumping at different points. A portion of the work is already comp vi ed, and about one-third of the entire sew erage is now discharged at Barking Creek, some miles below tie city. The magni tude of the work is wonderful. The por tion I saw consisted of four tunnels run ning parallel with each other, and either one of size sufficient to have had a train of railroad cars through it from end to end. THE OUTGROWTH OF LONDON. The facilities for getting out of town by rail have inducel quite a rage for living in the country, ana to such an extent is this carried, that for ten or fifteen miles in every direction the country partakes quite of the character of suburbs. Long rows of buildings are springing up, and well paved streets lighted with gas are forming in districts until lately quite rural. The buildings are generally very cheap erec tions, with a good deal of plaster imitation about them, though while new, having quite a respectable air. Rents I consider quite low at compared with houses of like a accommodations in Detroit a very re spectable villa of eight or ten rooms, with good sized garden, being procurable for J. E. S. News from Richmond of 24—Sherman's March through Georgia. We have received full files of Bichmond papers up to Friday morning. Their facts, speculations and editorials, are im portant, regarding Sherman's advance through Georgia. The WA:jr, of Thursday, while admitting the fall of Melledgeville, says their War Office has no news. The Enquirer of the 24th says: "A Representation of news concerning the occupation of Melledgeville by Sher man, occurred on yesterday ; and as. the rumor, whether immediately correct or net, was accepted as a matter of course, we may suppose, for the sake of hypothesis as to the situation in Georgia, that the city has fallen. Of course their has been no determined resistance. This supposition gives color to the rumor that a strong force of the enemy has made a demon stration upon Augusta, within twenty miles of which place, it is reported, they were encountered by our troops, and their left ws driven back in confusion and an assault by their right repulsed with severe loss. Savannah being their objective piint, this movement can only be called a feint, with a view of raiding on Augusta ana aestroving it. It is believed that the-large fleet which hss been in preparation in James River !r some time past, is intended to co-operate with Sherman." The WAiffof the 24th says: "There seems to be nothing definite from Georgia. The prevailing impression, baeod upon all information thus tar re ceived, is that Sherman has passed by Macon, and that he will move toward the coast without hazarding an attack on the defenses of Augusta. He will, of course, desolate the country through which he passes. Now, if Sherman has really at tempted so wild a movement, unless we are deficient in forces in that quarter, his ex pedition will come to grief. We look hopefully to Georgia, and expect great re sults. THE WHIG CAN'T SEE IT. The Whig editorially says : "We do not understand precisely why it is that the Yankees go into ecstacies of de light and admiration over Sherman's movement, unless it be that they are bound to consider themselves the greatest aud smartest people in creation. It is a matter of principle with them to declare that Sher man's movement is the grandest and pro f undest of this or any other war. But we must confess that we 'don't see it' as the Yankees see it. We don't for a moment, understand its importance, or the audacity by which it is characterized. In this re spect it certainly don't differ from any pre vious movement or any other Yankee General." FROM THE FRONT BEFORE RICHMOND. The Dbmatch of the 24th has the follow. ing, of affairs from the front of Richmond : " Yesterday the skies were bright and the air cool and bracing, but still the same quiet prevailed along the military lines in front of Petersburg and Richmond, as during tho proceeding wet weather. Should there now come a freeze, succeeded as it surely would be, by a thaw, the cam paign against .Richmond, so lar as any se rious and extensive operations are concern ed, may be fairly considered as ended ; but even then, it is likely that Grant will, with every tomporary return of hard ground, attempt some minor enterprises. The Yankees h ,ve of late had nothing to say about the .Dutch Gap Canal. At lift ac counts Butler had only 200 negroes at work upon it, and this small force or la borers was prevented by our batteries from doing full work. We feel pretty confident that this enterprise will not b completed in time for the canal to be used before next sprin g or summer. If we are right in this calculation, the great Yankee fleet collect ed in Hampton Koads, was not destined, as has been conjectured, to operate against rtichmond, but was brought together eith er for an attack on W ilmington, or to suc cor Sherman, when he shall have marched across the State of Georgia. The Yankee papers say the navy has been for a long time ready to attack Wilmington, and only waited for the co-operation of the land forces. And the Louisville Journal has told us that Sherman, after devastating Georgia, will exchange signals with Com mander Haines, on the Atlantic coast. Before taking leave of Grant's army, we will state that soldiers from Moseys command assure us that the 8th Yankee corps is still in the Valley, and that no force has left Sheridan's army to reinforce tyrant. The Sentinel, alluding to the statements of Northern papers of the reticence of Richmond journals, says: Richmond papers will have much to say at the proper time, that will create a panic in the Lincoln Males. The DLmntch. of the 24th. s&vs : We are still without official advices from Georgia. Some intelligence, considered good, is said to have been received at head' quarters hore, on yesterday, but we are un- ablo to form the remotest idea of what it is. It is the general opinion, ind we have no doubt, a correct one, in well informed circies, thst Sherman took possession of iiiiicageviue on yesterday, whether he met with resistance, or was permitted to take quiet possession, we have no means of knowing. It will be seen from extracts of Northern papers, published in another part of this paper, thut the programme chalked out for Sherman, is now to capture .Macon and AugusMt, and then tomarch on bavannah. The thing is a world easier to do on paper, than in fact. A private tale- gram lrom Augusta, yesterday morniug, announced that all seemed safe there at that time. A SHREWD CONJECTURE. The Daily Dispatch editorially says: It the people of South Carolina and Georgia do their duty, Sherman must be in a perilous condition. the editorial concludes as follows: Our own impression, however, is that thi? expedition has been undertaken with a view to render assistance to Grant. Sav annah or Charleston once takon, it would be easy to transfer Sherman's force to the lines beforo Richmond and Petersburg. A Lost Bet Converts a Democrat into Union Man. Many of our exchanges have noticed a rather novel bet made by two Trojans. The one whose favorite candidate for pres ident was defeated agreed to walk from Ida Hill to Alhia barefooted. Of course it leu to the lot of the partizan of General Mc- Clellan to perform this teat, and this morn ing at ten oclocs was assigned tor lis performance. But there was an alterna tive, which was quite important. The loser could evade the walking exarciseby paying an oyster supper as a forfeit. He proposes to do so and thus the funny fea tures of the case are spoiled. But there is a political sequel to the affair. The loser is convinced. He has left the democracy. The bet has mado him bet-ter. He tells officer Ager, the winner, 'I am as good a Union man as you, now, 1 go baok on Sey mour and the Chicago plaiform.' Thus the Union cause has gained a newrecmit, and a funny pedestrian feat is omitted.- Troy N. I.) Timet, November 'ii. The Nw York correspondent of the London Horning Herald', says the famous ti-act on miscegenation was written by two young Democrats connected with the New York press, in order to entrap the advanc ed reformation. The official vote shows the Union ma jority in Vermont to be 29,097. This is gam on the Union majority of last Sep tember of about 10,000, and on Lincoln's majority in 1860 of about 6,000. The ag gregate vote this year is over 11,000 larger than it was in 1860. Had Him There. At the Blatchford School examinati-n at Troy, last Tuesday afternoon, one of the committee said to the President f the Board of Education, who was conducing the exercises : "Ask 'em when the war will end. ( less that will puzzle 'em." Mr. Kemp, in his blandest tones, said to the class: "It is asked by a visitor when this war will end. uan any or you answer the question f ' Up went the hands. At least fifteen boys and girls manifested a willingness to solve the problem that statesmen, nnan ciers and politicians are supposed to puzzle themselves over in vain. "Tou may answer," said President Eemp to a bright-eyed little girl near him. When will the war end ? Rising from her seat the little patriot in a clear unfaltering voice, with enthusiasm flashing from her eyes, answered : " When the rtbels lay down their arms and sue for peace: Thus from the mouths of children often fall priceless pearls of wisdom. The person who suggested the inquiry said. "I guess we won't have any more questions.' "We are, all loyal in this school," was the comment of the Principal, echoed by the large audience present. AL oany Jixpress. Literary. The arrangements among the publishers for the holiday season show that there will be more activity this year than for several previous years. Several publishers have sent us their announcement. L. Prang & Co., of Boston, will repub lish, with twelve new illnstratior.s, she well-known and interesting story "A Visit from St. Nicholas" an attractive thing tor the little ones. The same nrm has is sued popular editions of "Robinson Cruioe" and "Little Bed Biding Hood," and are preparing a series of "Large Autumn Leaves," printed in elegant oil colors, suita ble tor framing. In the naming of the modern streets of .rarla, recourse has been had to the most celebrated names that occur in the fine arts. Whereas in a former age titles which were suggestive of war and victory were the most prominent at the street cor ners, there are now to be read the names of Quinault, Marmontel, Herole, Beethoven, Donizetti, Fellini, ijesueur, Cimarosa, Menur, Wilhelm, Orlando, Lasso, Be ran gor, Musaet, Lesage, Petrark, Talma, Pous- sin, Kapbael, Titian, Kubens, Ureuze, Scbeffer, David, Ingres, Vernet, Decamps, Vitconti and Erard.

HE CAM BB CONSULTED A3 USUAL. ON CATARRH DKANESS, And ail the rarioiu daeasos of the Ear Throat and Air Passages. BThTTOMB OT CATABBH. The first sensation is usually a feeling of dryness and heat in the nose, and a fre quent inclination to sneezing. There is an inability to breathe freely, as the nose be comes stopped up, sometimes on one side, sometimes on tne otner. Soon a clear, watery, acrid discharge manes its appearance, excoriating the nos trils, and edges of the lips, which become red and somewbat swollen. After a few days the discharge becomes thick, yellow ish, extremely frequent, and continues to be z. marked feature of the disease; and a source ot mucn aanger ana the greatest annoyance. After more or less time, it becomes purulent, highly offensive, and as sumes an extremely fetid odor. It is usually so profuse as to require, when con fined to the nose, the frequent application of the handkerchief! or, if it drops into the throat, which is more particularly the case while the body is in a Horizontal po sition, constant expectoratian, and some times doih. Sleep is freauentlv disturbed bv a sensa tion of choking caused by the presence of we uiBcuarga m tue inroat. irwmg w ice heat in the head, the watery part of the secretion often evaporates, andj assuming a condition or solidity is deposited upon the membrane of the nose and upper part of the throat, in the shape of crusts or hardened lumps. The accumulation of these incrustations produces a feeling of aisoomxort, and n arrow tna o..i I ruuuuigna so as to embarrass respiration. Therefore frequent efforts have to be made to remove them, either by forcibly blowing the nose, or by persistent hawking a practice as disagreeable to the one affected as it is to those around him. After the removal, that side U the incrustation which adhered to the mucous membrane will sometimes be found bloody, a fact which explains the force required for its dislodgment. During sleeep thuse incrustations accumulate more rapidly, and the feeling is therefore most uncomfortable in the morning. Sometimes all efforts to clear the throat are futile .un til after breakfast or after something warm is swallowed. Some patients state that they are not successful until they have swallowed some whisky or brandy. The discharge, which is at first without smell, assumes, in the proeress of the comdaint an excessively fetid odor, the breath par ticipates in wis, ana Decomes occasionally so revoltingly offensive as to render the patient an object of disgust to himself as well as to otners. u iceration ot tne mu cous membrane of the nose takes place fre quently, sometimes even attacking the bones, when small particles of that sub stance will occasionally be found mixed with the discharge. The accumulation of the discharge, together with the thickened condition of the mucous membrane, renders respiration through the nasal pas sages very difficult, and oftentimes impos sible, necessitating respiration rjrincinallv through the mouth, a method very delete rious to tne general nealtn, but more par ticularly so to the lungB, as will be shown hereafter. The unpleasant noise produced during sleep, known as snoring, originates from the same cause. The voice looses its musical quality, and assumes a discordant. harsh, and nasal character; the sense of smell becomes much impaired or entirely lost, and the same effect, though lees fre quent, is produced on the sense of taste. Occasionally, while blowing the nose, a crackling or bubbling sound will be heard in the ear, and hearing will be found quite thick and stopped up, but return sud denly with something like a snapping sound. This phenomenon is usually re poated until, at onetime, hearing does not return, and remains permanently injured. Noises in the bead of every conceivable description will make their appearance and add to the distress of the suflerer, and hearing may be lost so gradually that a considerable degree of deafness may exist before the person is really aware of 'the fact. The eyes are apt to become weak, irritable, and disposed to water on expos ure to cold and wind, or after the slightest exertion. A pain, more or less acute, or a distressing feeling of pressure, is experi enced over the eyes, and sometimes on the top or back of tne head, and also pain in the face, closely resembling neuralgia, for which it is very often mistaken. The dis tress in the head weakens the memory and Sroduoes irritability and moroseness of imposition. The stomach generally suffers more or less, is weak and irritable ;' the ap petite is capricious, and u nearly always bad in the morning. In severe cases the system becomes feeble and prostrated, and nere is an aversion or inability to either physical or mental exertion. . Not unfre quently catarrh proves fatal, either by de bilitating the system and wearing out" the patient, or by traveling downward find producing throat affections, bronchitis, aid finally consumption. It may be safely asserted that aftsr hereditary predisposi tion, catarrh ii the most frequent and im portant cause of this fatal complaint. ' Catarrn nas Deen considered an incura ble disease, and on the strength of that supposition has been neglected by both the profession and the public As it is the exciting cause in full half the cases of Deafness, Drs. Lighthill have for years past made its proper treatment their special study, and have by their success fully established the curability of this of fensive complaint.
