VEGETINE I OWE MY HEALTH TO YOUR VALUABLE VEGETINE. NkwI'ORT, Kv., April 29,1877. Mb, H. 11. Stevens Bear Sir:—Having suffered from a breaking out of Cankerous Sores for more tlmn five years, caused by an accident of a fractured bone, which fracture rail into a runningsore, and having used every thing I could think of and nothing helped me, until Iliad taken six bottles of your valuable medicine which Mr. Miller, the apothecary, rec ommended very highly. The sixth bottle cured me, and all 1 can say. is that 1 owe my health to your valuable Vegetine. Your most obedient servant, ALBKUT VOX KOEDER. It is unnecessary for me to enumerate the diseases for which the Vegetine should be used. I know of no disease which will not admit of its use, wiih good results. Almost innumerable complaints are caused by poisonous secretions in the blood, which can be entirely expelled from the system by the use of the Vegetine. When the blood is perfectly cleansed, the disease rap idly yields all pains cease healthy action is promptly restored, and the patient is cured. VE8ETINE Cured Me When the DOCTORS FAILED.

A republican territorial convention is hereby called, and will be held at the city of Yankton, iu this territory, on Thursday, the 93d day of Au gust, A. IX 1878, at twelve o'clock m., for the pur pose of nominating a candidate for delegate in congress, and for the transaction of such other business as may properlv come before the con vention. The several organized counties will be entitled to representation in the convention, as follows: NO. or VOTES. 1 COUNTIK8. Armstrong Barnes Bon Homme Brookings......... Burleigh Cass Chas.

The attention of republicans is called to the necessity of nominating candidates for district attorney in their respuctivedi.stricts.and as there are no district committees, the territorial com mittee suggests that the delegates to this conven tion be authorized to appoint committees for their respective districts, to call conventions for tliis purpose.

Territorial republican papers please copy. Secretary Sherman denies that he will 'resume" before the date fixed by law. The American Miller estimates the com ing wheat crop of Dakota at 15,000,000 bushels. Ernest Deicliman, of Wisconsin, appoint ed minister to Colombia, was accused of pofaesskg a bad character, but an investiga tion produced results favorable for the ac cused. A convention of American Hebrews was held in Milwaukee on Tuesday, at which a consolidation of ail tl Hebrew congrega tions throughout the country was agreed upon. Preparations for the payment of the awards under the United States and Mexi' can claim commission are nearly completed at the state department, and in about two weeks payment will begin. The prospects are that Montreal will to morrow become the scene of violence and bloodshed growing out of the orangemen's demonstrations which are to oocor. With each succeeding year a repetition of these scenes occur, and there seems to be no way to prevent them. The right to celebrate by parading the streets in procession cannot well be denied, and such parades are certain to bring about conflicts. The authorities are well piepared to meet to-morrow's dis turbances. Dakota will have an enormous crop, the first in many years.—Sioux City Journal. This is a specimen of how the Journal is in a it an in be ha a I the patt four years there has been but one crop failure and that partial. Last season the farms of Dakota yielded an abundance of the very best grain. The above item propagated by the Journal will have its run and its effect will be that persons who read it will consider that farming in Dakota is yet an experiment when the fact is that the capabilities of our soil and climate have been demonstrated beyond peradventure. Secretary Sherman in his letter to Potter, replying to the latter's letter of the 1st inst., claims the right to prove that violence did prevail, when the committee seeks prove it did not. The right to prove that the protests made against the validity of the election were correct, when the committee brings evidence of their falsity. He is will ing to have the testimony of previous com mittees on this point adduced as evidence, or to have the testimony given anew. He protests against the examination of Weber, as no member of the minority was present to object to questions asked, and as his corn* sel, Sbellabarger, was denied the privilege of cross-examination. He asks that all the documents now go in the record, and adds that he is ready to repel the charges against him. The political situation in the republican camp at the present time, briefly summar ized, is that Kidder, Moody, Bennett and Dewey form a quartette from which a dele gate to congress is to be closen. Dewey'i certain strength is in the northeastern coon ties of the territories and be has hopee and prowisrs in other localitiaa. Beanett's fol lowing seems to be ia the Black Hills coon- lies, Union county and a considerable allow ing in Clay county. Kidder and Moody are •ery milch Mattered over the territory and will consolidate considerable individual strength from widely separated localities. This is a sort of an outline of the situation, and there are many people who think they can see the direction in which the cat is going to jump. But they can't. We publish an account, taken from the Rapid City Journal, of the trial and acquit tal of the Indian murderer "Whip" In the United States court for the Black Hills dis trict. A stolid refusal of the Indian wit nesses to know anything about the affair has saved the neck of the most consummate red villian that ever ate government rations He belongs at Cheyenne agency and his murder of a sick soldier at that post some two years ago was wholly unprovoked and treacherously cruel. The soldier was exer rising himself by taking a walk in the vicin ity of the hospital when the Indian, who was laboring under some fancied grievance, approached him in an apparantly friendly manner and without any warning thrust a knife into bis vitals. This fact was clearly established, yet it could not be placcd before the jury in a legal way because the Indian witnesses would not tell what they knew, So "Whip" goes free, though an acknowl edged murderer. A SAFETY CAR RUNNER. St. Paul Pioneer Press. A party of gentlemen from this city and St. Pai 1, upon invitation of the American Railway Car Runner company, of this city, witnessed a practical am) highly satisfac tory test of their "safety car ruunvr," on the Minneapolis and St. Louis road, a short distance beyond tbo St. Paul and Pacific Junction, yesterday afternoon. The "runner'' consists of a bar of iron inches thick, suspended from the truck out' side of and underneath the oil boxes, and secured across the ends of the truck, by the break-beams. It is braced, between the wheels, and so constructed as to completely encircle and bind the truck. The runner hangs about four inches out from the wheels, on either side, and about oBe-balf inch above the trend of the wheel. It is claim ed for this runner that it will bold the car to the track under any and all circum stances, and yesterday's trial certainly sus tained the claim. The scene of the trial was in a sharp curve (6 degrees). An outside rail, thirty feet in length, was removed, and the car, an empty fltt, was scut over the gap Bt the rato ol'fifteen miles an hour. The "runner, did its work beautifully the trucks drop ped on to tbc ties, but was held close to the rail, and the car stopped In a distance of thirty feit. On the second trial the car was sent over the gap at the rale of twenty-five miles an hour, and ran about 150 feet, the "runner" holding it close to the rail, as lie lore, and in each instance tho car was re placed upon the track, uninjured, in less than thirty seconds! Railroad men who witnessed the trial pronouuee the "sufity runner" a grand thing. THE NATIONAL BIRD. A Change Imperatively Nccc.sary. The Hon. George W. Peck, in his Fourth of Jul oration at La CroBae, naid It may have been noticed that thus fur I have made allusion to the American eagle, the nation trade-mark, patent applied for, but it is not that I do not appreciate the position that species of poultry occupies on those occasions. The poet, alluding to the eagle, says: Bird of tlie liroud and lleetliiij \vinn, 'l'liy home Is lilgli iu lieaven. This is too true. He is a high old bird, and the committee that selected the eagle as a national emblem should hare been arrest ed for disorderly conduct. O, great bird You live on mice. You soar aloft on pin ions airy, until you see a poor little mouse with one leg broke, and then you swoop down like a ward constable, and run him in. You are a nice old bird for a trade mark, for a nation of heroes, you old coward. You sit on a rock and watch a peasant wo man hanging out clothes, and when she goes in the house to turn the cloihes-wringer, yon, great bird, emblem of freedom, you representative of the Und of the free and the home of the brave, you bwood down on the plantation and crush your talons in the quivering flesh of her little baky, take him to your home high in heaven, and pick his innocent little eyes out. You bala-headed old reprobate, you would turn your tail and run at the attack of a bantam rooster. O, eagle, you look well on dress parade, but you area unanimous coward, and you eat snakes. You are a fraud, and you were counted in by a vote of eight to seven. The bird that should have been selected as the emblem of our country, the bird of patience, forbearance, peneverance, and the bird of terror when aroused, is the mule. There is no bird that combines mofe virtues to the square foot than the mule. With the mule emblazoned on our banners, we should be a terror to the foe. We are a nation of uncomplaining hard-workers. We mean to do the fair thing by everybody. We plod along, doing as we would be done by. So doea the mule. We as a nation are slow to anger. So is the mule. As a nation we oc casionally stick our ears forward and fan flies off of our forehead. So does the mule. We allow parties to get on and ride as long as they behave themselves. So does the mule. But when any nation sticks spurs into our flanks and tickles our heels with a straw, we come down stiff-legged in front, our ears look to the bMutiful beyond, our voice is cut loose, and is still for war, and our subsequent end plays the snare drum on anything that gets in reach of us, and strikes terror to the hearts of all tyrants. So doea the mule. When the country gets older, and congress has time to get in its work, the eagle will be superceded by the national trade-mark, and in its place will rise the mule in all his glory, ana E pluribtu unum, our motto, will be changed to You pluribut nudum, tic, dittemper, aUipaca.
