These, and all ... j.n k. .un;n f ! things like these, eat up the revenues and garbling, and we call the attentton of of ln7Verinieni and destroy its readers to the extract from Web- ! iu credit, make the sftOnrenoe between str, which we recently published, as especially applicable to it. We said ou the 11th we were for a Democrat for Senator of Arkansas, but we would have Clayton if we could not get a Democrat. The Avaianche publishes the paragraph in which the first idea is contained, to show inconsistency in the Appeal, and omits that part of the article immediately following which shows perfect consistency. It takes disjointed sentences for proof, it never reproduces the fair meaning of an antagonist, and exhibits daily its absence ol honor and candor to every discriminating reader . To our Thursday's article it attempts no re¬ ply, because reply is impossible. It dare not give a fair statement of the position of the Appeal on that or any other subject, because it wants both tacts and gumption to make a re¬ spectable answer, and is driven to seek help from the Radical press even to make the contemptible showing it undertakes. There is no dealing with so shameful a publication. Sib Joseph Whitwokth, the em¬ inent English mechanician, urges the great importance of the use of every possible means for detecting the unsoundness of the iron used in axlps of railway carriages. As the best method for this purpose, he advises toe drilling of a hole through the cen¬ tre of its axis for its entire length, thus opening to inspection and exam ination that part of the material buke insolence, expose ignorance, gold and greenback. We must restore the Constitution beore we can restoro the unanose, and to do this ws must have a President who will executs the will of the people by trampling Into dust the usurpations of Congress, known as the Reconstruction Acts. I wish to stand be¬ fore the Convention upon this issue, but it is one which embraces every thing else that is of value in Its large and compre¬ hensive results. It is the one thing that includes all that is worth a contest, and without it there is nothing that gives dig- nitv, honor, sud value to the struggle. Your friend, FRANK P. BLAIR. It will be seen from the above let¬ ter that General Blair scorns the cant about "dead issues" and the "new era," and proposes to war upon the whole reconstruction policy of Radi¬ calism. If he were to utter such sen¬ timents in Memphis he would be called "Bourbon" and "fogy" by those who believe that every violation of the Constitution, every iniquity in the shape of Radical legislation are "accomplished facts," and should be accepted. The De¬ mocracy of Missouri have arrayed themselves against all the atrocities of Radicalism, whether in the shape of laws or Constitutional amendments, or else they would not nominate for the Senate General F. P. Blair, who barkening not to the siren voice of expediency, abjuring all concessions and repudiating all compromises, has lifted high the banner of Democracy and boldly bids defiance to the ene¬ mies of the Constitution. We trust General Blair will be elected to the Senate, for he is a man who will re- which, in the case of ordinary manu¬ facture, is most subject to flaws. The hole should be about one inch in diam¬ eter, and with suitable mechanical arrangements might be drilled at an average cost of about thirty-seven rents per axle. With the o'utside turned and the inside thus exposed to view, a serious flaw in the axle, which is only about four and a half inches in diameter, could hardly ea¬ r-Ape discovery. This plan will also diminish the tendency of the axle to get heated, by removing the material near the neutral axis, and, under the circumstances, would reduce the in¬ ternal strain, and thus render the axle safe. show up the iniquities and traitorous objects of Radicalism ; demonstrate the efficiency and truthfulness ol the great and vital principles of Democracy; defend the right and resist the un¬ principled schemes of a reckless and corrupt administration; thus giving strength, hope and encouragement everywhere, and thus contributing to those grand results which will cause the national heart to throb with joy, exultation and triumph. The many calamities and frequent disasters on the railroad lines of this country show the necessity of provid¬ ing some means for greater security. Scarcely has the shock passed away of the news of one crash, attended with the most of the horrors of a battle-field, before another has fol¬ lowed it, until the public sensibility to such losses of life even begins to be blunted. The following casualties are reported as having occurred during the last ten months : Killed. Iri'd Ohio New Jersey 10 New York 21 Calilornia 21 Iowa 12 Ten neaase 1 Pennsylvania V Indiana 6 Vermont 5 Massachusetts 3 Mississippi 21 Nnw litiinpshire 1 The Avalanche has a repetition in yesterday's issue of its stereotyped boast that it excels the Appeal in "enterprise;" and the boast has no better foundation than the fact, that, at the cost of a mere trifle, it obtained a special, which the Appeal reporter at the same place tailed to forward. The same paper is careful to say noth¬ ing of cases in which the Appeal "enterprise" has so lar outstripped it, nothing of the fact that the Appeal contains nearly double the matter of the Avalanche, and nothing ol the verdict of an intelligent public rend¬ ered in the Appeal's favor by a sub¬ scription list which we believe to be Illinois 5 double the number. To the "enter¬ prise" of the Avalanche iu falsifica¬ tion, misrepresentation and garbling, of which Mr. Webster said "I know no passion more appropriate to devils than the nosaion rv.. .vio aJaassssaaBi sentation and libel," the Appeal is wnstraintd.to succumb. We commend again to the attention of our neighbor the following paragraph from the bi¬ ography by Mr. Curtis : In classical times there wss a set of mall, but rapacious critics, who were de¬ nominated eaptatore verborum, who snatched and caught at particular ex¬ pressions; expended their strength on dxttictn mem In a of language- birds of ra¬ pine, who played on words and syllables, and gorged themselves with feeding on Kurbtge o!

The railroad system of the country has proved of immense liene- fit. It ha brought distant sections into close neighborhood ; developed the re¬ sources of whole States, and given an impulse to internal commerce, to ag¬ riculture, and the mining arts, such as have never been witnessed before. Hut these lenetits, great as they arc, may be regarded as purchased at too high a price if life is always to be placed at hazard, and the conquests of peace are to prove little less bloody The Democracy ol Missouri have the dl8a9ters lh&t occur did not in many cases result received in a smash-up or destruction of oars and in a hand-to-hand contest with the outlaw of society will work a change that will be wonderful. We can scarcely cite a great railroad tratredy where some one was not to blame where prudence in conduct¬ ors, and engineers, and flagmen, or liberality in the direction of the com¬ pany, would not have avoided the disaster. Security ol life and prop¬ erty is the right of every man. It is the duty of government to interpose for its protection when other means fail. The great loss of life which has resulted from railroad travel in the United . -kites calls loudly for inter¬ vention. Fines and penalties, suited to the case, must bo decreed and rigidly enforced. Laws regulating the action of companies, to insure public satety, must be adopted, and accountability established for every accident. This accomplished, we doubt not, our railroads would be worked with as few accidents as now mark the administration of the older lines of England and the European States. The comparative safety of railway travel in England is due be¬ yond all question to the fact that the courts demand of the companies a strict fulfillment of all the requirements they take upon themselves and deal with severity with managers and employes who do not exercise dae precautions in tie running ol trains. We learn from a long article in the New York Herald on railroads that "they are not only held to answer to the penal en¬ actments of the country, but are com¬ pelled to pay heavy pecuniary dam¬ ages to the dependents of the victims of their negligence, and those who sustain personal injuries but escape with their lives. It is not unfrequently the case that verdicts are returned in the English courts to the amount of thirty thousand or forty thousand dol¬ lars for personal injuries, and we have noticed at least one case in which more than fifty thousand d illars was recovered. It is true that heavy verdicts do not wholly prevent fatal or serious accidents, but it greatly reduces their prevalence, as it compels the companies, as a matter of self protection, to operate their roads with greater care and conse¬ quent satety to passengers. Accord ing to the returns of the British Board of Trade, there was paid by the rail road companies of England and Ire¬ land in lstis, for damages for acci¬ dents, no less a sum than $,lu3,boo. Of this amount, f 1 ,407,910 was for in jury done to persons, and $ii3,91.,i for damage to goods. The figures for 1S69-70 are not at hand, but from re¬ liable estimates the totals are likely to exceed that of 1868." A, V. TawiiwiLL, 1st Mssohssn Tread well A. B. TssAiWBi.n, of Treadwel! Bros. K.

They hesitate to call things by their right names. They shrink from uttering unwelcome truths, and thus take away the heavy sense of responsibility which should ever rest upon all who temporarily hive the lives of their fellow-men in their keeping. The result of such na¬ tional characteristics i- seen in th' mode of performance of nearly all pub lie contracts, a rigorous execution rarely being witnessed, because of the accommodating disposition that per mih gross derelictions of duty to pass without a rigorous exaction ol the penalty. It is necessary that on all our railroads a discipline of the most severe character should be introdaced. There should be no toleration of care¬ lessness, of neglect, or of remissness. There should be no pardon for a sin gle relaxation of a solitary rule; no excuse for an infringement of anv regulation, even if no accident hap- fiened in consequence. On all the roads of the country where strict dis¬ cipline has existed the loss of life has been remarkably small. Wo may say with pride that the Southern roaos though comparatively new, and worked before they were put in a state of perfect finish, have, thus far, been the scene of no great dis¬ asters.

The anterior absorbs. Interior consists of tissues er veins, whiohjaerve aa a deposit for the urine and convey It to the exterior. The exterior is a conductor, alao, terminating In a single tube, and called the Ureter. The ureters are connected with the blander. The bladder is composed of various cover In js or tissues, divided into parts, via: the Upper, the Lower, the Nervous, and the Mu¬ cous. The upper expels, the lower retains. Ma ly have desire to urinate without th ability; others urinate without the ability to retain. This frequently occurs In children. To cure these affections, we must bring into action the muscles, which are engaged in heir functions, if they are neglected, Grave or Dropsy may ensue.

Directions for use and diet accompany. Philaobdfhia, Pa., February 25, 188J. H. T. Hblmbold, Drnggtst : Deab Sib I have been a anfferer for up ward of twenty years with gravel, bladder and kidney affections, during which time I have used various medicinal preparations, and been under the treatment of the most experienced Physicians, experiencing but little relief. Having seen your preparations extensively advertised, 1 eonsnlted with my family phy¬ sician in regard to using yonr Extract Bncbn. I did this because I had used all kinds of advertised remedies aud had fonnd them worthless, and some quite injurious; in fact I despaired of ever getting well, and deter¬ mined lo use no other remedies hereafter unless I knew of tbe ingredients, it wss his that prompted me to use your remedy As you advertised that it was composed ol feuhu,cuebsand Juniper berries. It occurred to me and my physician aa an excellent combination, and, with his advice, after an examination nf the article, and consulting again with the druggist, I concluded to try it. I commenced Its use about eight months ago. at which time I was confined to my room. From the first bottle I was astonished and gratified at the beneficial effect, and after using It three weeks, was able to walk out. I felt much like writing you a fall statement of my case at that time, but thought my im¬ provement might ouly be temporary, and therefore concluded to defer and see If It would effect a perfect cure, knowing then It would be of greater value to yon, and more satisfactory to me. 1 am now able to report that a care ia cf foe ted after using the remedy five months. I have not used any now for three months and feel as well In ail respects as 1 ever did. Your Bnchn being devoid of any unpleas¬ ant taste and odor, a nice tonic and lnvlgo- rator of the system, I do not mean to be with oat It whenever occasion may require its use In auch affections. M.
