Notwithstanding the objections to the sign
ing the water bill, recently passed by the
Council, by some of the members, it has been
signed by the Presidents of b?th branches,
and will no doubt be promptly signed by the
Mr Winchester, the Superintendent of the
Baltimore and Susquehanna Railroad, whose
arrangements, it is thought, cuused the terri
ble catastrophe of the 4th. has been suspended,
and Mr Columbus Addison appointed in his
place This will not appease the people. Mr
Winchester is the only one to blame for that
terrible result.
An accident occurred on the Baltimore and
< >hio railroad, yesterday, near Piedmont, inju
ring Mr Davis, the conductor, who was
brought to this city and placed in the infirmary
It is thought he cannot survive
The stock of the Baltimoro and Ohio railroad
sold to-day at an average of $54 per share
The present state of this stock is somewhat
as'oni-hing to outsiders. People wonder how
a roa<l doing su;h an immense business and
with such a glorious future can be so much
below par I shall inform myself on the sub
ject an 1 give the readers of the Star the re
salt It is thought that there is bad manage- j
ment somewhere
Capt Trancis Martin, who was sentenced'
sometime since by our U S District Court '
for an assault upon a sailor on board his ship,
at the earnest solicitation of his wife, has been
pardoned by the President.
Many of our tavern keepers pay no attention
to the Sunday liquor law Mr. Hines, our
Maine Law Sheriff, is determined to enforce
Ibe law lie has persons stationed in the
r.eighbo-hood of those who violate the law,
wto take down the names of all who enter
taverns on Sunday intending to summon them
a- witne?ser- at the nest term of the court, lie
will make s nice thing of it in serving sum
monses. *
The Origin of the Citrtsy.?Its de
rivation from tourtoisie. courteousness.
that is bel ?rior like that at court, at
once shows that it was primarily
the reverence pa d to a monarch. And
it wc call to mind that falling upon the
krees, or upon one knee, as has been a
. ommon obeisance of subjects to ruleis.
and is a form still gone through to our
own Queen at every presentation, we may
infer, wbat the character of the curtsy
itself srzjrests. that it is an abridged act
of kneebog. As the word has been con
tracted from courtoisu into cuitsy, so the
motion lias been contracted from a placing
of the knee on the floor to a lowering of
the knee towards the floor. Moreover,
when we compare the curisy of a ladv
with the awkward one a peasant girl
makes, which, if continued, would bring
her djwn on bo'h knees, we may see in
this last a itmn-nt of that greater rever
se required of serfs.
And when, from considering that sim
ple kneeling of the West, still represen
ted by the curtsy, we pass east ward, and
note the altitude of the Mahomed an wor
shipper. who not only k.eels, but bows
his head to the gTound, we may infer that
th'- curtsy also is an evanescent form of
the aboriginal prostration. In further
evidence of this, it may be iemarked that
thvre has but recently disappeared from
the salutations of men an action having
ihe same pro:?imafe derivation with the
curtsy. That backward step of the foot
with which the conventional sta^e-sailor
aco mpauies his bow, a movement which
pre\ ailed generally in past geieration,
when " a bow and a scrape ' went to
gether, *nd which, within the memory
of living perse "is, was made by boys to
th..ir school-master with the effect of wear
ing a hole in the floor.
A motion so ungainly could never have
been intentionally introduced; even if
the artificial introduction of obeisance
were possible. llenee we must regard it
o* tue remnant of something antecedent:
and that this something antecedent was
humiliating ma^' be interred upon the
phrase scraping an acquaintance,' which
1>-ing n -ed to denote the gaining of favor
y oW-quiousness, implies that the scrape
wa* considered a mark of servility?thai
is of lily. ? Wuukester Rciuic.
The Fo*em>* Population".?By the
ovnsus of 1H50 it appears that of the
wh te population of the United States
then amounting to 10.5W.058, there were
boiu in foreign countries 2,24t>,535 pei
sous. vu. : males, 1.2.30,434: females,
i.ool.loj. Those ascertained to have
been born in the United States amounted
to 17,279,375, and 32,05^ were reported
unknown as to nati\ity. It thus appear-'
that the proportion of natives to foreigners
iu 1 f r)0 was nearly eight to one iu the
?vhole United Slates. It should be ob
served ti?ar. since ihe census of 1?50 wa?
tak-n, the foreign population has largely
increased by immigration, amounting to
over one million in all: so that the num
<*-r of persons of foreign birth now in
the United Status may be stated at about
three* and a half millions. The propor
tion of Germans among the recent immi
grants ha* been very great.

ELIXIR OR CORDIAS *?rt? deemed fabulous. The
public often deceived, eornld oeKene the simple
and sublime truth a announced by the discoverer.?
But facts, undeniable facts attested by witreme ol
the highest ?la*> and now triumph
ing over all doubts. INCREDULITY 18 OVER
THROWN by a mass of testimony which is perfectly
irresistable. ? .....
The Euxip. remedies, in cases, 'he deplorable
evils arising frorr. am! fuse or abuse of tbe Tarious
organs which make up the wonderful machine called
man. It restores to foil v got every delicate func
tion connected with that mysterious compound
agency of matter ? n-i mind, necessary to the repro
duction of human life. To persons of feeble muscu
lar frame, or deficient In vital power, It is reconv
mended as the only means of communion ting that
energy which is recewwy to the proper enjoyment
of all the natural appetites, as well as the higher
mental attributes. Its ben^fleial effects are not con
fined to either sex or to any oge. The feeble girl,
the ailing wife, tbe listlcs, ernevated youth, tte
overworn man of business, the victim of nervous de
predion, the individual suffering from general de
bility, or from the weakness of a single organ, will
all find immediate and permanent relief from the
use of H?l? incomparable renovator. To those who
have a predisposition to paralysis it will prove a
complete and unfriling safeguard against that terri
bio malady. There are many, perhaps, who have ro
trifled with their constitutions, that they think
themselves beyond the reach of medicine. Let not
even these despair. The Eliiir deals with disease as
it exists, without reference to causes, and will not
only remove the disorder itself, but
The derangements of the system, leading to ner
rou.< feases, and the forms of nervous disease it
qelf, are so numerous that it would require a column
to enumerate-the maladies for which this preparer
ration is a specific. A few, however, may be enume
rated, vis: neuralgia, tic dolereaux, heaiache, incip
ient paralysis, hysteria, palpitation of the heart, spi
na.1 alfections muscular debility, tremors, flatulence,
a pr . Ling sensation in the flesh, nvmbness, torpid
ity of th- liver, mental depression, weakness of the
will, indi?p - ition t? move, faintness after exercise,
broken sleep an t terrifying dreams, inability to re
main in one place * i position, weakness of the pro
creative organs,g sexua'. incompetency, melancholy,
monomania, fluor albus, uking at the stomach, fe
male irn-guiariti?s, a chronic tendency to miscar
riage, emaciation, and all complaints growing out ol
a free indulgence of the passions, and all barrenness
that does not proceed from organic causes beyond
the reach of medicine.
Whenever the organs to be acted upon are free
from malformation or strictural diseases it is averred
will replace weakness with strength, incapacity with
efficiency, irregularity with uniform and natural ac
tivity, and this not only without hssard of reaction,
but with a happy effect on the general organisation
jcy-Bear in mind that all maladies, wherever the)
begin, fmitn with the nervous system, and that th*
paralixation of the nerves or motion and fensation is
physical death. il* ar iu mind also, that for every
kind of nervous disease tbe Elixar Cordial is the
only reliable preparation known.
