L. KIDWKLL, Druggist, George tm, D. C. History of the Beech Drop, or Oncer Root. Tni Buch Drop, ob Cancer Root, is figured and described by the celebrated Dr. Barton, in his Medi cal Botany. A knowledge of its extraordinary medierl virtat-s was first learned from the North American Indians, byjwhom it was used for the treatment und cure of Cancer, Rheumatism, Scrofula, and Consumption. The Fluid Extract of Orobanche is composed en tirely of the products of the vegetable kingdom, so combined as to possess in the greatest perfection the virtues and powers of an alterative and purifier of the blood. It is, therefore, applicable as a never failing remedy in Scrofula, whether suppurative or glandular, Chronic Rheumatism, Cancerous disease* in any form, especially caucerous diseases of the Uterus. In all complicated cases of Scrofula and Syphilis, and in cases where the syphilitic virus of the parent Cauws a development of Syphilis or Scro fula 1* the child, this is the only remedy upon which a hope of recovery can be reasonably founded. It Is useful in all scaly skin^diseafes, Ulcerated Sore Throat, White Swelling, diseases of the bone, and all casos of an ulcerous character. It is also particularly useful in Chronic and Nervous Om plaints, occurring in debilitated and cachetic consti tution; in Bronchitis, Dyspepsia, Chrome Enlarge ment >f the Liver and Spleen, Dropsy,dij ttrbsofthe Kidneys and Blander, and all diseases arising from an impure state of the blood. The estimate that is accorded this preparation by the msdical profesnnn, and indeed by all competent to judje of its merits, may be seen in the fact, that it is c instantly prescribed by many of our must emi nent physicians, and that it has been presented to their students as worthy of their especial attention. The following certificate is given from the very best authority?John R. Jones, lata Assistant Clerk ?o the House of Representatives. His recovery is oensidered extraordinary. Most of the members of bcth Houses of Congress visited him at the St. diaries Hotel, and expressed their astonishment at the wonders effected by the Compound Fluid Extract of Beech Drop: Washington, D. C., April 29, 1363. For the benefit of the pubcic, and with none other than a desire to do good, I cheerfully state, that I was afflicted with a cough and bronchial affection, from July, 1S5'2, to March, 185-3, and during that time was almost constantly confined to my room, laboring under great debility and severe cough. 1 had medical skill of the highest order, through whose treatment, and under the guidance of a higher than mortal power, my life was prolonged tip March, 1863, when I commenced the u*e of Dr. Kidwell's Beech Drop, or Extract of Canoer hoot. Since that period I have taken about six bottles of the medicine, and it gives me pleasure to state that it has effected an entire cure, with the exception ol weakness, occasioned by long confinement to my room, i would tdvise all persons similarly afiiicUxl to try it. I consider it an invaluable medicine. The humbugs usually palmed upon the public in the shape of certificates favorable to the virtues of i medicines, almost deter me from giving mine; but. ' a sense of justice and humanity alone prompt me to make the above statement. John R. Jones. late Ass't Clerk Ho. of Hops., Washington. Now Chief of the Land Office, Vicennes, lnd, CHRONIC RHEUMATISM CURED! Georgetown, Jan. 31,1863. Dsar Sir: It is with a sense of gratitude, and a di-sire that others suffering from disease may be in duced to use the Hetract of Beech Drop, that I con sent to give the following statement for publicity. Until the last month 1 was a sufferer from Chronic Rheumatism, from the effects of which my heal h war 60 completely undermined and broken up, that I lost 20 or 30 pounds of my usual weight. Anxious to find seme relief, I resorted to the most approved patent medicines. I used a number of bottles of Townseud's Sarsaparilla, and exhausted the list of Liniments, without any effect. My joints now be came enlarged, and the pains in my limbs so excru ciating, that they had to be rubbed two or three times a night. The muscles of my h<gs were so con tracted that 1 presented the appearance of a man of | sixty-five when 1 walked. In this condition, more through curiosity than a belief in its good effects, I commenced tue use of your Beth Drop, and in ten or twelve days the swelling about inyjoints had sub sided; and now, afier the use of three bottles, I am able to resume my business, and can walk with the same ease and comfort that I formerly did. Yours truly, Ac., Isaac Barrett, Second street, Georgetown. Georgetown, February 1,1864. Mb.

[From thf OI?>Trt?nd P1ain<toa1er, April 6.] A MTODEBOUB M1KI AC-ATTEMPT TO MURDER A FAMILY?A STORY OF HORROR. A horrible tragedy was enacted at Roots town, Ohio, on the*22d nit. Mr. Horae ? L. Ensign had risen, and, without dress ing, was in the act of putting a stick of wood in the kitchen stove, when lie wa^ felled by a blow on his head. Mr. K I was standing at the time near a door that ' opened into the wood-shed. t The dooi was ajar, and the blow was given from some person in the shed. lie saw no one | but placing his hands on each side of hi> hcad, he hastened through into his dining room, where his wife was. He exclaim ed, "I am killed: some one has split utv head open with an axe." He then iai< out to the door and cried murder. Ilis I wife seeing him bleeding, and a gash 011 his head just above and back of the tem ple, shouted for help. Meantnne the children were awakened and came run ning in: the eldest, a son of sixteen, 011 coming down stairs opened the door to the wood-shed, thinking his father was in there. On opening the door the lirst ob ject that he saw was a man with an up lifted axe, looking like a demon at him. He says, "Caleb, what do you want of me?" Caleb sprang back and shut the dour. By this time a neighbor cainc across the street and went to the wood house, when the maniac addressed him bj* name: "Donald Deming." "That is my name," he replied: and, continued he. "John Chittenden, what are you doing with that axe?" thirst for blood, and blood I will have," said he. Mr. Deming tried to cool him down, and after a few minutes succeeded in getting the axe.? However, before he could get it away, Chittenden, who is a powerful man,sprang for the axe, and Deming being much the weaker,Chittenden wrenched it from him. Some of the children had been sent for help, even in their undress. After losing his hold upon the axe, Deming retreated to the dining room, where Horace sat bleeding, and his family around him, frightened very much. Deming held the door from the dining room, and hoped to keep him from that, but with the axe he shivered the door at once, when Mr. De ming exclaimed, "run for your lives."? By this time another neighbor got there, and on seeing what was going 011, ran for home to get his rifle, thinking it best to : shoot the madman. ? Upon the word being given to run. they all left, as they thought, and Dem ing shut the outer door: but Lucinda, iheir eldest daughter, (fifteen years old) stopped to save a little brother, two and a lialf years old who had been awakened by the breaking in of the door, and had jumped from his bed 011 to the floor,' and stood screaming from fright. She caught him m her arms, and reached the outer door just in time to get her fingers pinched as Deming shut the door. She saw the wretch leap through the door, through where the upper panel had been broken. She called to have them open the door, but by this time she received a blow from the head of the axe, which felled her with the little one still in her arms. Meanwhile, Horace had a pre sentiment that some child still remained in the house, and had gone around to tin back kitchen door and entered, passing into the dining-room. There lay Lu cinda, weltering in blood, and as he sup dosed, dead. The outside door had been opened. Deming had opened it for the child when rshe called. Chittenden was in the act of splitting open Deming\s head ; Horace sprang across the dining room and seized the axe-handle to avert the blow from D. Chittenden findinr some one behind him, turned uj>on hin I and in the suffle, cut to the bone 011 the back of Horace's head. Upon that Hor ace seized him by the throat, and Dem ing by his leg, and by a hard struggle they goot him down, he still retaining the axe, and Horace still choking him. By this time the woman had called the man back that had gone for his rifle. He caine,. and with much difficulty wrenched the axe from him, (he only held it one hand); they then got ropes and bound him. Horace was covered with blood and so was the floor. Alter the man was secured, a messen ger was posted to Ravenna for medical aid. The word flew light lightniug, and a geneial rush ensued. Horace's head wa.-> trepanned. His biain lay exposed during his struggle with the man. The pulsation could be seen, but the mem brane was not broken. The irside oi the bone was one and one-eighth of an inch long, and three-fourths of an inch wide. Upon the outside the bone was more than two inches long, besides two small pieces that were not measured. He, to all appearance will survive, but poor Lucinda is in a very critical situa tion. The bones were so driven into tlu brain that the surgeon thought it not best to do much for her: but her friends in sisted upon trying. After five hours they proceeded to drtss her wound. After pressing the scalp each way, they ex tracted six pieces of bone, some an inch and over. Several of them were nearly buried in the brain. Dr. Pratt extracted them, raising up the skull bone wherever it was depressed. About two spoonfuls of the brain escaped. She still lies in a very critical situation, but with small hope of recovery. This* Chittenden be longed in Randolph; has had fits from a child; an ugly tempered man naturally. Of late his friends have thought him de ranged at times. The night previous to this attack he had three keepers. He attempted to kill his brother. His wife was directed to go to a neighbor's to stay. In her hurry to leap a fence she sprained her ancle. Of course she crawled on her hands and knees, and by so doing, she probably escaped death, for he broke loose from his keepers, and in pursuing her he passed very near her twice; but the night was dark, and she being on the ground, he did not see her. Ila left searching for her, and went to a neigh- < bor's and called the man, (Mr. Ward.) ? Mrs. Ward did not recognize his voice. 1 and replied to him that he had gone af- ] ter John Chittenden. "Well," said he, ? with an oath, "yc J shall go toe." She i then knew his voice, caught the candle < and blew it out. Her two daughters were up stairs in bed.

Tiie individual w.th whom it was left, after waiting some time tor the return of tue owner, concluded to examine it. which he did in the presence of several individuals. I he firat thing which appeared was a roulette wheel, which on being taken apart was found to be constructed so" that by touching a spring, the bottom of every 1 >x painted red would be made to rise, presenting a smooth, surface, and leaving the ball no alternative but to drop into the black, .^jould the heaviest betting be uj>ou the black, tin; screw might be pressed a little harder, where upon the l>olloms of all the black boxes would come up, and the ball must go into the red. The whole thing was so ingeniously contrived as to present, un less taken apart, not the slightest appear ance of deception. Moving with the smoothness of clock work, the machinery could never fail. With it a child might plav against the world, and win every stake. Doubtless many a young mail who has gone out from our Eastern States to the land of promise, buoyant with health, and hope, and energy, and has there earned by the sweat of his brow an amount sufficient to rendir him independent for life, has in a moment of excitement or lbrgetfulness, been in duced to stake his hard-earned gains at the table of a gambler?perhaps on such an instrument as this?and has thus been lobbed not only of his wealth, but of his hope, his energy, and his self-respect.

The Sailor's Bible.?After a recent heavy storm on the coast of Massachusett, a sailor's chest, which had been swept from some wrecked vessel, was cast on shore, and opened by those who found it. A narrator says: "But we found a precious treasure in the sailor's chest. No diamond of Brazil ?no gem of the Western Coast so pre cious; yea. the price of it was above ru bies. It was the Word of God. We were glad to see it. The sight sent a tide of pleasant thoughts through our hearts. If we knew not where the tempest had sent the body, we could not but hope this precious Bible had^ sent the spirit to a heavenly home. No name yet met our eyes; but these beautiful lines, cat out of some book or periodical, were pasted on the fly-leaf : '?A parent'* Wesnnj; ?>n hrr s*?n. ??or# Willi tblo li'ily tiling: Tin- love tliat would relaiii the one. >lu?t to Uic oilirr dine, KeiiM'uiticr, 'lie ?io common u?y, A mollierV gift! rcini'iuber boy."
