Dr. MINGK, a practising Physician, and formerly

on the Liver, the good effects were wonderful indeed.

History of the Beech Drop, or Oncer Root.
Tub listen Daof, ok Cancer Boot, is figured and
described by tlie celebrated Dr. Barton, in his Medi
eai Botany. 4
A knowledge of its extraordinary medlcrl virtue?
was first learned from the North American Indians,
bytwhom it was used for the treatment and cure of
Cancer, Rheumatism, Scrofula, and Consumption.
The Fluid Kxtraot of Orobanche is composed en
tirely of the products of the ratable kingdom, so
combined as to possess in the greatest perfection ttte
virtues and powers of an alterative and purifler cf
the blood. It is, therefore, applicable as a never
failing remedy in Scrofula, whether suppurative or
glandular, Chronic Rheumatism, Cancerous diseases
in any form, especially cancerous diseases of the
Uterus. In all complicated cases of Scrofula and
Syphilis, and in cases where the syphilitic virus of
the parent causes a development of Syphilis or Scro
fula in the child, this is the only remedy upon which
a hope of recovery can be ressonaUy founded.
It useful in all scaly skin diseases, Ulcerated
flora Throat, Wliite Swelling, diseases of the bone,
and all cases of an ulcerous character. It is also
particularly useful in Chronic and Nervous Ccm
plaiuts, occurring in debilitated and cachetic consti
tution; in Bronchitis, Dyspepsia, Chronic Enlarge i
ment if the Liver and Spleen, Dropsy, diseases of the
Kidneys and Blander, and all diseases arising from
an im pure state of the blood.
Th?? estimate that is accorded this preparation by
the umlieal profession, and indeed by all competent
to judfe of its merits, may be seen in the fact, that
it is c ?nstantly prescribed by many oi'our most 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
beft authority?John R. Jones, late Assistant Clerk
'.a the House of Representatives. His recovery is
xnsidered extraordinary. Most of the members of
bcth Houses of Congress visited him at tlie St.
Ciwrlcs Hotel, and express* d their astonishment at
the wonder? effected by the Compound Fluid Extract
of Baech Drop:
Washington, D. 0., April 29,1863.
Tot the benefit of the pubcic, and with none other
than a desire to do good, I cheerfully state, that I
wus afflicted with a cough and bronchial affection,
from July, 1S5^, to March, 1863, and during that
time was almost constantly confined to my room,
laboring under great debility and severe cough. I
had medical skill of the highest order, through
whose treatment, and under the guidance of a
higher than mortal power, my life was prolonged
til! 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 I
the medicine, aud it gives me pleasure to state that
it has effected an entire cure, with the exception of I
weakness, occasioned by long confinement to my
room. I would ad vis* all persons similarly afflicted
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
medicines, almost deter me from giving mine; but
a sense of justice and humanity alone prompt me to
make the above statement.

CHRONIC RHEUMATISM CURED I
Gxoegitown, Jan. 31,1863.
Diar Sir: It Is with a seiifle of gratitude, and a
desire that others suffering from disease may be in
duced to use the Extract of Beech Drop, that I con
sent to give the following statement for publicity.
Until the last month I was a sufferer from Chronic
Rheumatism, from the effects of which my health
war so completely undermined and broken up, that
I lost 'JO or 30 pounds of my usual weight. Anxious
to find some relief 1 resorted to th* most approved
patent medicines. I used a number of bottles of
Tovrnsend's Sirsaparilla, and exhausted the list of I
Liniments, without liny effect. My joints now be
came enlarged, aud the pains in my limbs so excru
ciating, that they had to be rubbed two or three
times a night. The muscles of my legs were so con
tracted that 1 presented the appearance of a man of I
sixty-five when I walked. In this condition, more
through curiosity than a belief in its good effects, I
commenced the use of your Beech Drop, and in ten
or twelve days the swelling about my joints 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 Babrstt,

Mb. Kid well?Sir: A female member of my family,
?gwd 14 years, had b^en affected with a painful Scro
fulous affection of the ear for 4 years, and although
the best medical advieu was bad here and in Balti
more, still the disease increased and the pain often
became almest intolerable. Fortunately for us, your
Beec/i Drop was recommended to be used, and I have
great pleasure in stating that it has been eminently
successful. The Mucous Secretions has not made its
appearanoe for some months; the health of the pa
tient has been quite restored; all the parts that
were heretofore so much diseased have become sound
and well, and 1 am much gratified in being able to
state to yoa, that I regard it as. having been ac
complished entirely by the use of your Beech Drop.
I am very respectfully, your obedient servant,

John L. Kidwell: Dear Sir?This is to certify that
my daughter, aged 2 years, was affected with Scrof
la or a very aggravated form?the disease had so
undermined her health, that life was entirely de
spared of. IleariDg of the efficacious effects of your
Beech Drop in such cases, I procured it, ani after
u.-.iug one bottle so evident was her improvement
that we persevered with it. When she had used 4
bottles, her health was perfectly restored. Our
neigt bors and friends who saw her condition prior
to using tue Beech l>rop, unite in attributing to your
remedy the credit of her recovery.
Very respectfully yours, William R. McLean.

of your German Bitters, which entirely cured me. I
have used two Inttles. I sent two bottles 150 miles
from here to a ttend who had been sick for a long
time; he has also been cured by them. I believe
them to be superior to any medicine new in use."
K. B. Perkins, Marietta, Ohio, Feb 22,1861,
said: "Your Bitters are highly prised by thess whe
have used them. In a case ef Liver Complaint, ol

THE FIGURE KIRS.
Gkxtlemrn : To the curious and inte
resting results of combination with th<
mystic figure mne, additions might b<
made almost ad infinuum, as shown bv
Koss, in his Mental Calculator. If you
will multiply 9 eight places by 2, and
the other digits up to 9 inclusive, the
whole line of results will be ranged alike,
and from left to right. Thus:
9999999?
23456789
18 27 56 45-54 63 72 81
It will be perceived that the first figure
in each couple, for either end, is in simple
rotation from 1 to 8.
Again: Set down all the digits except
8, and you will produce Is, 2s, 3s, and
so on, as you may multiply by one 9
two 9s, (18,) three 9s, (27,) and so on,
thus:
12345679

And so on, having each time tb* same
figure in nine places, the product and
that digit multiplied by 9 will give you
the number of 9s by which you multi

ODD DUEL.
A correspondent of the Cincinnati
Times, writing from Helena, Arkansas,
describes a quarrel which arose there,
and the manner of its settlement?to wit:
One of the coldest nights last winter,
two prominent citizens of this place, who
for years had been intimate friends, met
at the bar-room of one of the taverns,
and soon became merry over a little of
the sparkling juice. From good humor
they got into argument, from argument
to hard words, and from hard words to
abusive language. Indeed, it soon be
came evident that under the code of southern
chivalry, "a meeting" between the two
was inevitable, to satisfy the honor of one
or both. In the midst of the excitement,
however, one, and perhaps the first of
fender, happened to cool down, and re
flecting on the folly of shooting at, or be
ing shot by an old friend, thought of an
expedient to prevent the shedding of
blood.
"I say, S ," said he to his excited
friend, "we have quarreled, the lie has
passed, and now we must meet and have
it out."
"Nothing else will satisfy me," replied
the other with an oath.
?'"Well now, I consider it foolish for old
friends as we have been," continued the
first speaker, "to fight in any way, and
as we both have families who would suf
fer as much as either of us could by a
meeting, I have something to propose,
which while it will test our courage, will
not be quite as dangerous as facing pis
tols and bullets."
"What is it ?" asked the other, his
anger suddenly cooling to a remarkable
degree.
"Why, that we both strip off, jump
into the Mississippi,s wim twenty yards,
and return, and the first one who reaches
the shore, to be declared in the right."
"Done!" replied the other, who was
an'expert swimmer.
Instantly both parties stripped, and
though the cold wind howled from the
north, and the surface of the water was
frosted with ice, they started almost on a >
run for tbe river, followed bv some by
standers who had witnessed the quarrel,
and who were to be judges. In they
both plunged, and boldly stemmed the
boiling current of the father of waters,
despite the freezing temperature of th<
water. Out they swam, until the judge*
dccided they were twenty yards from the
shore, and bid them return. One easily
reached terra tirma but the other soon
gave out, and to the horror of those on
shore, screamed for help. He was rescued
with mueh difficulty, and as he was haul
ed, shivering and almost drowned, from
the river, he exclaimed between his chat
tering teeth: "I'll bed?d if S
wasn't right; I must have been drunk
when I disputed with him !"
A little internal and external applica
tion of the ardent, relieved the parties
from the injurious. effects of their unsea
sonable swim, when they shook hands
and resumed their former intimacy. I
like this new mode of duelling, and
recommend it to all those chivalric in
dividualy, who contend that wounded
honor can only be healed, or courage
tested, by squinting at the muzzle of a
cockcd pistol.

in the Bible, (which is a book made under
their direction,) and are tbe F'athrr, the
Son, and the Spirit. Other worlds have
other Gods. Jupiter is a large world,
and may have five or six Gods. Matter
is eternal, and Gods are great minds that
preside over and rule it. Hence the need
of many Gods.
2d. Gods and men must use means to
grow greater. Marriage and births are
great means of advancement. Hence,
God the Father has been married, which
is proven by the fact that he had a son,
Jesus Christ, and by such passages as,
"Are not his angels ministering spirits ?"
which passage they interpret as follows :
Who naturally ministers to man ( An
swer?A wife. Now, God has been mar
ried of such, and therefore they are my
riads of wives to Him. Men imitate Go*j
when they marry.
3d. Polygamy. The Patriarch, \nd
others of early age, had many wires.?
Only when despots and oppr^ors ruled,
did the Bible law of many- wives become
disregarded. It is only human enact*

mcnts that prevent the right um of wni
vrrsal marriage now. They argue from the
difference ot the sexes, which exists with
out their consent, that God ordains that
all Aall marry, whether they desire it or
not. There is no more power of choice
in this than there is whether we est or
not, sleep or not, and other neoessary
functions of life and health. Hence, to
refuse to marry, or neglect it when of
suitable ape, is disobedience of God's au
thority. _
Rissiax Troops.?There were about
five hundred Russians quartered in the
neighborhood of the khan. They had
thst staid, soldierly look which is the ef
fect of severe discipline. This I observed
to be the characteristic of nearly all the
Russian soldiers that I have seen in the
Principalities. The exceptions are the
young recruits, who of course are not
yet properly formed. 1 lisve never ob
served any appearanee of light-hearted
ness among the Russian soldiers even
when off duty. It is true, that at times,
in marching, whole battalions sing in
chorus either the National Anthem, which
is a tine, solemn air, or some wild melo
dy, generally of a warlike character, in
terspersed with sliarp and an occasional
shrill whistle. These latter songs are
particularly animated and spirit stirring,
and the quick rattle of the drum, which
is the sole instrumental accompaniment,
increases their exciting character. To
the listener there is something sublime
in thus hearing thousands* of manly
voiccs blended together in chorus utter
ing sentiments of devotion to God and
the Emperor, or of tierce defiance to the
enemies of the Czar. But even in these
exhibitions the sternness of military rule
is seen. I pon the faces of the men thus
engaged no trace of emotion is visible:
their forms are erect: they are obeying a
command, and not an impulse. The
emotions of the heart seem to have been
drilled into order, and expressions of love
or anger, devotion or revenge, are onlv
awakened by the voice of their command*

Oriental Modbstt andPoi.ite.vms.?
A traveler in the Oriental countries re
lates the following:
"At the town of Dear I got accidental
ly into a little adventure that might have
proved extremely unpleasant. Small as
the place was, I contrived to lose niy way,
and became entangled among a number
of garden walls and narrow passages.?
Proceeding along one of these, 1 fancied
I heard a lenpale voices, and presently,
emerging into a shady court, beheld a
young Circassian in the bath, attended by
a black female slave. In Christendom,
the lad}' would certainly have shrieked,
and brought forth the whole household
in a moment; but her oriental education
had taught her great caution. Casting
on me a look of surprise, as she stood up
right in the marble basin, as white as the
marble itself, she asked how 1 came
thither. I replied that I had lost my
way, and knew not how I had come nor
how to depart. Perceiving my perplexity
to be unfeigned, she replied?"Stranger,
you are in much peril; but follow the slave,
and she will conduct you to a place of
safety." So saying, she waved her hand
towards a dark corridor, through which,
after bowing to the lady, I followed the
negress, till we reached a small door open
ing into the street- As it would have
been extremely awkward to meet any
gentleman of the establishment within
the wall 8, as they might have shot me
first and then inqured how I came there,
I felt considerably eased by escape."
The Tri e W at to Risk in the World.
It is only by plodding, activc habits of
industry, that we can hope to win our
way through life. The race may be ar
duous. but it is one which will well repay
the competitor. Barrow justly says?"A
noble heart will disdain to subsist like a
drone upon honey gathered by others' la
bors, like a vermin, to filch its food out
of the public granary; or like a shark to
prey upon the lesser fry; but will rather
outdo his private obligations Jo other
men's care and toil by considerable ser
vice and beneficence to the public; for
there is no calling of any sort, from the
sceptre to the spade, the management
whereof, with any good success, any cre
dit, any satisfaction, doth not demand
much work of the head, or of the hands
or of both." Milton, who during an ac
tive life in the most troublesome times,
was unceasing in the cultivation of his
understanding, thus describes his own
habits: "Those morning haunts are where
they should be, at home, not sleeping or
concocting the surfeits of an irregular
feast, but up and stirring; in Winter, of
ten ere the sound of any bell awake men
to labor or devotion: in Summer, as oft
with the bird that first arouses, or not
much tardier, to read good authors, or
cause them to be read till the attention
be weary or memory have its full fraught;
then with useful and generous labors pre
serving the body's health and hardiness,
to render lightsome, clear, and not lump
ish obedience to the nund to the cause of
religion and our country b liberty. Any
man who does not profit by such noble
example is an enemy to the public weal.
A Musical Box?During his stay at
Kouka, Major Den ham received a sum
mons from the sheik; to whom a report
had been made of a musical box, belong

merely by his holding up his finger.
The messenger declared he was dying to
see it, and he must make haste. The
wild exclamations of wonder and screams
of pleasure that this piece of mechanism
drew from the geuerality of his visitors
were curiously contrasted in the person
of the intelligent sheik; he at first was
greatly astonished, and asked severs!
