Decrenae of Flail tn Our Waters. We print to-day a very valuable article upon tho decrease of fish in our waters, by our gifted friend, Professor O. N. Bryan, of Marshall Hall, on tho Potomac: Nothing perplexes naturalists more than the continued chango in organic life. Tho bowels of tho earth, from time immemo rial, reveal a continual change. Genera, species and varieties are over on the change. Dynasty succeeds dynasty in the brute creation as among men. To day no more startling theory moves the minds of swans or perplexes the wisdom of the great theologians of tho earth than •tho continued "extinction and creation of species." It was so "from the begitining." A few little and insignificant creatures be gun life almost at tho "early dawn"—long ere man made his appearanco upon the stage—ruu tho gauntlet of the many taty clystns af nature, and now rejoice in the presence of man, aud will doubtless be co extensive with him. We will instance a fow cases of extinc tion since the 'Historic period;" the Mam moth atiid Mastadon of America ; the Cave Bear, Cavo Tiger and Hyena of Europe; and of our day and in our own waters, the Groat Auk (Alca impennie) —tho last ono seen was in 1844. In Ichthyology, tho names of the extinct species and genera ore legion. Iv most cases theso creatures appear to have died without any cause— they had run their "periodiccycle"—"lime fought against them." In the case of tho Great Ank, spoken of above, it seems truly to have run his "periodic cycle." So far as savans can see, thero has been no ohange of climate. But to the point: Tho decrens3 of fish in our waters. Popular opinion will havo it, that tho decreaso of fish is owing to their destruc tion by nets ; this is one cause, it is true, but it is only "a drop in the bucket." The great cause of the decrease of fish is the continual mod floods during thoir advance up our streams during the spring, aud often when the lirih has just reached their spawning grounds. consequences are they have to "turn tail" and run down be fore the flood to es3,ipe the suffocating ele ment. All this while tho spawn is matur ing, and beforo the mud subsides the spawn is ripe and has to be exuded; nine times in ten in improper places, and pos sibly often iv salt water. These floods havo been going on ever since the settlement of the country by the whites, aud will increase more and more us the country becomes opened and cultivated. The question may be very pertinently asked, why this has uot been going on from all timo? We answer: Since the introduction of our edible fish upon the scene, the earth was covered with verdure—trees, grass, <fee, until tho advent of the "pale faces." Before that era the windows of heaven were opened, then as now, tho floo.ls c.ime, but fell upon the trees, shrubbery aud grass, trickled to the ground antl passed off inlo the small rivu lets, thenco to the main streams, without disturbing tho soil. But tho "palo facos" came, felled tho timber, plowed the land, and when the floods came hundreds of tons of tho soil went along wilh it to fill up o.ir creeks and rivers. As proof of this, num bers of our creeks are so filled up that they are not now navigable for the small river craft, where once the sea-going vessel could safely load and unload. This filling up of tbe creeks and rivers has doubtless covered up all the old spawning beds of the fish. That the fish are dying out, or that at least two varieties have run their "periodic cycle," we havo reason to fear, It is in the memory of living men that thero was once a variety of shad antl herrings called "Poplar Backs," and it was common not many years since for fishermen to expect to catch duriug the season more or less of them ; to-day they are looked upon as cu riosities, so scarce are they. Here again "time fought against them," for thoy dis appeared as gluts, according to report, long beforo the big seines began. A further proof that there aro other causes at work, than the seines, to decrease the fish, we offer tho fact that the littlo min now and smelt—fish that no one fishes for —aro rapidly on the decrease. Again, the gar-pike (Lcpidostciis osseus) has near ly disappeared. This fish does not come sp in large quantities until tho last of May or first of June, whon nearly all Ihe seines are cut out. Reviewing all the facts, the conclusion is irresistible, that if it is uot tho floods, &c , that is working tho destruction of the fish, then it is "time that fights against them." If this last is the true cause, then the art of man to restock the rivers will avail nought. Reasoning from analogy, wo must come to the conclusion, however, that they have not yet run their "periodic cycle," becauso in animal life, since the world began, every extinction has beeu followed by improved creations, and we have as yet no improvement upon these creatures. Tho improved species have always been introduced before the final ex tinction of its type. Tho index hand cf the Great Giver of all goo 1 most unerring ly points out to man his duty. Let us in time heed the warning and commence the operation of raising fish to restock our waters. It is by that means and that only can we hope to keep up a supply of fish. As an evidence of what can bo done, we give tho following figures as tho increase of ono shad in eight yeara—assuming that the young shad come to perfection aud spawn in twelve months from birth, though this is not correct; it takes threo years for them to come to perfection. Hero aro the figures: 10,003,500,450,025,800,658,608, --461,064,400,343,000,100,000. Now, in stead of one or one hundred shad lett in the river, we suppose, from first to last, there must be nearer ono hundred thousand ; and this would give for tho third year, ten millions; and yot there aro not five hun dred thousand shad caught upon the Po tomac as an average. The causes uf decrease of iiih aro as fol lows: '.st. Mud floods, as slated above. 2d. Navigation : by stirring up tha mud, and iv case of steamers, plunging through the shoals of the "young lry" while too weak to got out of the way. 3d. Storms of wind : hy stirring up the mud upon the ll.its, where shad and her rings delight to spawn, aud in caso the young fish has just escaped from the egg, overwhelming them iv the waves while too young and tender to sink heuoath Ihe power of the storm. 4th. Catching by nett. 6th. Fish of prey, both in the river .md at the sea. 6th. Di-s'Uso: A few years a>!" ouo of the bays of the New England Btitei was «o filled with dear! fish, principally her rings, that pei-plu living within three in les of the bay hud to remove further hack into the couutiy, so gt«»t Was the st. ml: A like OMUally overtook tli" si mi i I fish oil' the coast ut Scotl md alio, not many \ r its since. THE STATE JOURNAL ♦ Tun Stats Joo-iinai. enters upon a new ca -5 reer, under auspices which promiso perma nence and increased usefulness. c This paper will be Republican. Tho organ i of no wing or clique, it will aim to represent tho policy of the National party; to build up a healthy National sentiment, and inspire love of the whole country. It will not be the vehicle of personal detrac tion, nor be used to get its pets into oflice, nor to keep others out. The safety of all is in the | triumph of the cause ; and to secure it, all must labor zealously and devotedly, and take , tbeir chances in the general result. , Aiming to treat every member of its own party generously, it will be just to its oppo nents. It will discuss all questions of public interest fairly and temperately. Asserting the right earnestly and resolutely, and bating no jot or tittle of tho truth which it isoalled.to de clare, it will aim to "speak the truth in love." It will commend genius, patriotism and vir tue everywhere, and be as prompt to expose corruption and imbecility in its own party as in another. We shall advocate all measures to advance tho public good, originating in our own party or outside There are vital questions enough between ua and the opposition without seeking issues where all good men should Btand on common ground. Believing popular Education to be tho one crying want of our State and of the country, we shall give large space to its advocacy. To educate thoroughly all the children of tbe State should be the supreme and paramount work of legislation. To thia sacred task wo consecrate our paper. We shall plead tbe cause ofthe little ones who have no voice and, in so pleading, we plead for the future of Virginia in whatever can mako her groat and glorious. The financial condition of the country, and especially of the South, will not be neglected. We advocate a financial policy which will bring back again to the South more than its old prosperity. Wo aro for the encourage ment of a varied home industry. Wo are for Free Hanking, under a system which makes monoy absolutely safe and accessible to busi ness men at living rates. We are for such a revenue system as will preserve the publio credit without imposing undue burdens upon tho people. Healizing tho vast importance of mechanical and manufacturing industry, we shall labor heartily for the development ol theso interests, we shall give accurate and detailed informa tion of our vast natural wealth in mines, for ests, water-powora and fisheries. Believing in the "harmony of interests," we shall endeavor to show how fully each is de pendent upon the prosperity of all; that labor and capital, employer and employee, should be allies and friends, enriching each other by fraternal co-operation. Agriculture is our pet. Fresh from a Vir ginia farm, which we leave lovingly and re« luctantly for awhile, wo have learned some thing of what wide and varied knowledge, what patience, economy and administrative ability it takes to make a farmer. Wo shall give large space to Agriculture and Horticul ture. In conclusion, we will say that we will unite cordially and earnestly with men of all parties to remove every obstacle to the moral, intel lectual and physical progress of our State and nation. There are thousands of noble young men and women in the State full of grand capacity, now dormant and wasting. Tho old Commonwealth is founding the drum-beat to duty. Let them shake off the night-mare of conservatism and old traditions, and march bravely to tbe work ol this new day. So shall they make the future of Virginia worthy of the past, and themselves worthy of a great an cestry I REPUBLICAN NAHONAL PLATFORM. Ohe National Republican patty of the United States, assemblod in National Convention iv tbe city ol Chicago, on tho 21st day of May, IS6C, make tbe r following declaration of principles : 1. W r e congratulate the country on the assured success ol'the reconstruction policy of Congress, as i evinced by the adoption, in tbo majority of the States luU'ly In rebellion, of constitutions securing i equal civil und political rights to all; aad it ia the r duty ofthe Government to sustain thoso institutions i and to prevent the people of such Btates from leing r remitted to a state of anarchy. 2. The guaranty by Congress of equal suffrage to all loyal men at tbe South was demanded by every consideration of puidic safety, of gratitude, and of justice, and miißt be maintained; while tho question uf suffrage in all the loyal States properly belongs to tbe people of tbose'Statos. 3. We denounce all forms of repudiation as a na tional crime; aud the national honor requires the payment of tho public indebtedness in tbe utter most good faith to all creditors at home and abroad, not ouly according to loiter, but tho spirit of the laws uuder which it was coutracted. 4. It is due to the labor of the nation that taxa tion should be equalized, and reduced as rapidly es tbe nutloual faitn will permit. 5. The uatioual debl, contiacted c. r it has been for the preservation of the Uutou for all time to come, Bbould bo extended over a fair period for redemption; and it is the duty of Congross to reduco tiie rato of intorest thereou, whenever it can be honestly dove. 0. That tho bost policy to diminish our burden of debt is to so improve our credit that capitalists will seek to loan us monoy at iowor rates of interest than wo now pay, and must continue t* pay so lung as re pudiation, partial or toial, open or covert, is threat ened or aiisi-e tod. 7. Tbe Government of the United States should be administered with the strictest economy; and tho corruptions which havo been so shamefully mined and f ißterod by Andrew Johnson call loudly for radi cal reform. 8. We profoundly doplore the uutimely and tragic dtathof Abraham Lincoln, and regret the accession to the Presidency of Audrew Jobusoo, who has acted troachorously totuepeouto who elected him und tbe cause he was pledged to support; who has usurped high legislative and judicial functions; who haa re fused to execute the laws ; who has used his I igh office to induce other officers to ignore and violato the laws; who has employed his executive powera to reuder insecure the property, tbe peace, liberty and life of tho citlr/.eu ; who has abused tho pardun iug power; who has denounced tho national legisla ture as unconstitutional; who has persistently aud corruptly resisted, by every means in his power, ovory proper attempt at the reconstruction of the States lately fn rebellion; who has perverted tho public patronage into au engine of wholesale cor ruption; aud who has been justly impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, an 1 properly pro nounced guilty thereof by the vote of thirty five Senators. V. The doctrine ot Great Britain and other Eu ropean powers, that because a man is once a subject liv is always so must bo resisted at every hazard by the United States, as a relic of feudal times, not au thorized by ihe laws of ia.ions, and at war with our uatioual honor and iudepeudeuco. Naturalized cit izens are entitled to protection iv all their rights ot citizenship, as thong'u tbey wero nativo-burn ; and no citizen ofthe United States, uativo or natural ized, must bo liable to arrest aud imprisonment by auy foreign powor for acts done or words snoknu in this country ; and, if so arresied and imprisoned, it is the duty of the Government to interfere in his bo half. HI. Of all who wero faithful iv tho trials of the late war, there were none entitled to more eßpecial huuor than the hi aye soldiora and seamen who en dured tho hardships of campaign and cruise, aud im perilled tbeir lives in the service ofthe country; the bounties and penulous provided by tbe laws fur those brave detoudira of the nation aro obligations uever to be forgotten ; the widows and on,ham of tho gallaut dead are tbe wards of the people—a sa cred legacy bequeathed to the natiou'a protecting care. 11. Foreign Immigration, which in the past has added bo much to the wealth, developemeut, and re sources, uud iucroase of power to Ihi* repubpc, the asylum ul" tho opproißod ol all nations, should bo foatorod and e*>cou.aged by a liboral and just policy. l'J. This iM.iventi-i i declares Itself lv B)iupath> with all oppressed peoples struggling for their rights. 18, That we highly crimue.nl *ho spirit of mag nanimity and forbearance wiih which men who have served iv the rebellion, bu' who now frankly uinl honestly co-ope,ate with ns in restoring tbe peace of tho country aud reconstructing tbo touili ern State governments upou the basis of Impartial justice and equal rights, are received hack into the cuniuiiiuiou uf tbo loyul pe-nlo; and we favor the removal of the dbquariticationa and restrictions im posed upon tbe Ir le lebela ill the same measim, as the spirit of disloyalty will die out, atidaNiuay bocon sisteut wiih the saieliy of the loyal people. 14. That we lecognizo tire g.eat pHooiptes laid down Pi llro ituu'or.a!

Freedom from those contribute In no small degree to their happiness and welfare, for none can be happy who are ill. Not only so, bnt no one of the** various female c*mplafnt* can long be snffertd I' run on without Involving ths general health of tbo Individual, nan ere long produoing permanent sickne«s and prematnre decline. Nor is It pleasant to consnlt a physician for the relief of theie various delicate affections, and only upon the most argent nocessity will a true woman so far sacrifice her great. est charms to do this. The sex will then thank ns for placing In their hands simple specifics which will be found efficacious in relieving and curing almost every one of those troublesome complaint* pecull* to tbe se HELHBOLII'S EXTRACT OF BUCHU.—Hundreds snffer en in silence, and hundreds of others apply vainly to druggists and doctors, who either merely tantalize them with the hope of a cnre or apply remedies which mako them worse. I would not wish to assert anything that would do injustico to the i.nii. led, but I am obliged to say that although It may be produced from excessive exhaustion of the powers of life, by laborious employment, unwhole some air and food, profuse menstruation, the use of tea and coffee, and frequent childbirth, it is far of toncr caused by direct Irritation, applied to the mn cuo membrane of tho vagina itself. Whon reviewing the muses of these distressing complaints, It is moat painful to contemplate the at tendant evils consequent upon them. It is but sim ple justice to the subject to enumerate a few of tire many additional causes which so largely affect the life, health, and happiness of woman In all classes of society, and which, consequently, affect more or lees directly, the welfare of tbe entire human family.— Tbe mania that exists for precocious education and marriage, cause* the years that nature designed for corporeal developement to be wasted and perverted in the restraint* of dress, the early confinement of school, and especially in the unhealthy excitement of be ball-room. Thus, with tbe body hall-clothed and the mind unduly excited by pleasure, pervert ing In midnight rovel the hours designed by nature for ni, op and rest, the work of destruction is half accomplished. in consequence of this early strain upon her sys tem, lannei'orrsary effort Is required by the delicate votary to retain hor situation in school to a later day, ihns aggravating tbo evil. When one excite ment is over, another in prospective keeps the mind Morbidly sensitive to Impression, while the now con stant rea-ratnt of fashiona'olo dress, absolutely for bidding the exercise indispensable to tho nttainmen aud retention of organic health and strength; the Kxpoinio to night air; the sudden change of tempe rature, tho complete preistratlon produced by execs ■in dancing, must, of necessity, produce their legitf- Bftte eff'-ct. At last, an early marriage caps thecli max cf misery, and the unfortunate one, hitherto no utterly regardless ef the plain elictata* and ronton stmoces of her delicate nature, becomes An unwill ing subject of medical treatment. This is bnt a truthful picture of the experience ef thon lands o our young women. Lcng before the ability to exercise the Amotions of tbe ..ono»atfvo organs, they require an education of their peculiar nervous system, composed of what is called tho tissue, which Is, I common with the fe ia:\l' breast and lips, evidently under the control of mental emotions and associations at an early period r-f life ; and, as we shall subsequently see, these emo tion.,, when excosslre, lead, leng before pnberity, to habits which sap the very life of their victims ere .iii' has Helf-Cmpleted their development.
