Nose or 8kin. Affections of Liver, Lungs, 8tomach or Bowels these terrible Disorders arising from the Solitary Habits of Youth those ecret and solitary practices more fatal to their victims than the song of Brians to the Manners of Ulysses, blighting their most brilliant hopes of anticipations, rendering marriage, Ac, impos sible. IOCNGMEN especially, who have become the victims of 8oll tary Vice, that dreadful and destructive habit which annually sweeps to an untimely grave thousands of young men of the most exalted talents and brilliant intellect, who mignt otner- wise bare entranced Listening Senates with the thunders Ol eloquence or waked to ecstacy the living lyre, may call with rail confidence. MARRIAGE. , Married Persons or Young Men contemplating marriage, aware of Physical Weakness, (Loss of Procreatlve Power Impotencyl, Nervous Ex citability, Palpitation, Organic Weakness, Ner- vous Debility, or any other uisquanncauon speedily relieved. He who places himself under the care of Dr. 3, may religiously confide In his honor as a gentle man, and confidently rely Uon bis skill as a Pb v- sician. ORGANIC WEAKNESS. Impoteocy, Loss of Power, Immediately Cured and full v Igor Restored. This Distressing Affection which renders Life miserable and marriage Impossible is the penalty aid by the victims of improper indulgences, Young persons are too apt to commit excesses from not being aware of the dreadful conseqences that may ensue. Now, who that understand the subject will pretend to deny that the power of procreation is lost sooner by those falling into improper habits than by the prudent I Besides being deprived the pleasures of healthy offspring, the most serious and destructive symptoms to both body and mind arise. The system becomes de ranged, the Physical and Mental Functions Weakened, Loss of Procreative Power. Nervous Irritability, Dyspepsia, Palpitation of the Heart, Indigestion, Constitutional Debility, a Wasting of the i rame, Cough, Consumption. Decay and Death. A CURE WARRANTED IN TWO DAYS. Persons ruined In health by unlearned pretcn dcrs who keep them trlflinir month after month, takiug poisonous and Injurious compounds, should apply lmmediateu. DR. JOHNSTON, Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, Lon don, Graduated from one of the most eminent Col'cges In the United States, and the greater part of whose ife has been spent in the hospitals or London, rris, Philadelphia and elsewhere, has effected some of the most astonishing cures that were ever known ; many troubled with ring ing in the head and ears when asleep, great nervousness, being alarmed at sudden sounds, bashfulness, with frequent blushing, attended sometimes with derangement of mind, were cured immediately. TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE. Dr. J. addresses all those who have iujurrd themselves by improper indulgence and solitary habits, which ruin both body and mind, unfitting them for cither business, study, society or mar riage. These are some of the sad and melancholy effects produced by early habits of youth, viz: Weakness of the Back and Limbs, Pains in the Back and Head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Mus cular Power, Palpitation of the Heart, Dyspepsy, Nervous Irritability, Derangement of Durestive Functions, General Debility, Symptoms of Con eumption, fcc. Mektallt The fearful effects on the mind are much to be dreaded Loss of Memory, Con fusion of Ideas, Depression of Spirits, Evil Forebodings, Aversion to Society, Self-Distrust, Love of Solitude, Timidity, &c, are some of the evils produced. Thousands of persons of all agea can now Jatige b U tha ounanf their dsollning health, losing their vigor, becoming, weak, pale, nervous and emaciated, having a singular appearance about the eyes, cough and symptoms ol consump tion. YOUNG MEN Who have injured th mselves by a certain prac tice indulged in when alone, a habit frequently learned from evil companions, or at school, the effects of which are nightly felt, even when ! asleep, aud if Dot cured, renders marriage Impos sible, and destrovt both mind and body, should apply immediately. What a pity that a young man, the hope of his country, the darling of his parents, should be snatchci. from all prospects and enjoyments of life, by the consequence of deviating from the path of nature and indulging in a certain secret habit. Such persons MC8T before contemplating J1AKK1AGE. reflect that a sound mind and body are the most necessary requisites to promote connubial happi ness. Indeed without these, the journey through life becomes a weary pilgrimage ; the prospect hourly darkens to the view ; the mind becomes shadowed with despair and tilled with the melan choly reflection, that the happiness of another becomes bliehted with our own. A CERTAIN DISEASE. When the misguided and imprudent votary of pleasure finds that he has imbibed the seeds of this painful disease, it too often happens that an ill-timed sense of shame, or dread of discovery, deters him from applying to those who, from education and respectability, can alone befriend him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms of this horrid disease make their appearance, inch as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose, noctural pains in the head and limbs, dimness of sight, deafness, nodes on the shin bones and arms, blotches on the head, face and extremities, pro gressing with frightful rapidity, till at last the palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fall in, and the victim of this awful disease becomes a horrid object of commiseration, till death puts a period to Lis dreadful suffering, by sending him to 44 that Undiscovered Country from whence no traveller returns." It is a melancholy fart that thousands DIE victims to this terrible disease, through falling into the hands of Ignorant or unskillful PRE t TENDERS, who, by the use of that deadly Poi son, Mercury, etc., destroy the constitution, aud ' incapable or curing, keep the nnhappy sufferer wowth aftsr month taking their noxious or In jurious compounds, and instead of being restored to a renewal of Life Vigor and Happiness, iu des 2 fMlr I cava him with ruined Health to cih over his galling disappointment. "J To such, therefore, Dr. Johnston pledges him . 'self to preserve the most Inviolable Secrecy, and from his extensive practice and observations iu tfce great Hospitals of Europe, and the first in this eonntry, via : England, France, Philadelphia and elsewhere, Is enabled to offer the moft cer tain, speedy and effectual remedy iu the world for all diseases of imprudence.

As we pass through the journey of life, With its struggles, Us fears, and temptutiong- Its heart-breaking cares and its strife. We can only see things on the surface, For few people in glory sin ; And an unruffled face is no index To the tumult which rages within. How little we know of each other ! The man who tonlay passes by, Blessed with fortune, and honor, and titles, And holding his proud head so high, May carry a dread secret with him Which makes of bis bosom a hell, And he, sooner -or later, a felon, May writhe in a prisoner's cell. How little we know of each other ! That woman of fashion, ho sneers At the poor girl betrayed and abandon'd, And left to her sighs and her tears, May, ere the sun rises to-morrow, Have the mask rudely torn from her face, Aud sink from the height of her glory To the dark shades of shame and disgrace. How little we know of each other ! . Of ourselves, too, how little we know ! We are all weak when under teuptation, All subject to error and woe. Then let biassed charity rule us, Let us put away envy and spite Or the skeleton grim in our closet, May some day be brought to the light. A RAILROAD SMASH Whoever has traveled much or little by railroad knowi how the faces of his fellow travelers interest him, how ia the absence of anything tlse to occupy his mind, he will study tleni, trying to imagine the character anc history of its owner. Such was the case f Charley Reymart, who was on his way to Chicaso from New York. In the next seat in front of him sat a girl whose beaut; would have attracted his attention anywhere ; but here he studied her youthful perfect features, her dark, luminous eyet, her golden brown hair, and her perfectly round neck and shoulders until she seemed perfection to his enraptured vision. Drinking in visually all these thbgs lie fell into a kind of day dream, of vhich the fair creature was the heroine, and matrimony the climax. Suddenly he was aroused from his revery by a screech of the locomotive whistle, a terrible crtsh, and a sensation of being thrown vioently forward into the debris of the smashed car. As soon as he had re covered frctn the first shock, he realized his posilioi. A violent collision bad piled the train h a confused mass, and he was buried beneath it. It was dark, and as he felt about with his hands he found that he was, although uninjured and able to move a little, completely wedged in by the wreck of a car. Uis band, iu groping, came in contact with another hand, and as it clasp ed his in its trembling, sacred grasp, he knew it to be the soft, small hand of a wo man. It clung to his tenaciously, as if its owner felt safely in the contact 'Are you hurt V asked Reymart. 'Xo, sir, I think not. At least I feel no pain.' The voice was low and sweet, although its tone attested her azony of fright. 'Can you move your body freely ?' ques tioned Reymart. 'Yes,' she replied, 'but I have no space to move in much. Do you think we'll ev" get out alive ?' 'Almost certainly so.' he said an assurance of unconcern th?' ne scarcely felt. 'It may require so- little time for them to remove the "ck but 1 th5nk we have little dan?o-10 fcar haT",DS escaped the first shf nc collision. Have you ay c,vpanion8 on the train ?' 'Ho, I am alone.' The thought that she was the beautiful girl who had occupied the seat in front of him made his heart bound, inasmuch as the soft hand that clasped his had been j'oined by its mate, and both clung with a nervous pressure that made his blood tingle, even amidst the surroundings. Already the sound of vigorously applied axes began to mingle with the groans of the less fortunate passengers, and Reymart knew that the wreck was being removed as rapidly as possible. Yet it seemed an age before they drew near his vicinity. He shouted to them, and they worked slowly in his direction. After awhile a ray of light streamed in, and fell up the face of his companiou. His conjecture was cor recthe saw the admired features of the beautiful passenger. A few minutes later and they were both lifted out uninjured, save by & few scratches and bruises. Reymart led his fair companion to a sta tion which was but a few rods distant from the scene of the accident, and found her as comfortable a seat as possible. The other rooms were half filled with wounded, and a train was momentarily expected to convey them to the nearest city, which was Buffalo. Very soon it came. I presume we had better take this train,' said Reymart 'If you think best,' replied the lady. He was flattered by her deference to his judgment, and politely escorted her to a seat in the train. 'I suppose it would be useless to attempt to learn the safety of your baggage,' he said, when they were seated. 'I had none,' she said ; 'my journey was not a very long one. I live in Cleveland, and have been on a day's visit to some re latives.' 'And my baggage,' he added, laughing, 'is not bulky, although tolerably valuable. I carry it all in my breast pocket, and it consists of several thousand dollars in bills, which I was taking to Chicago.' The ride to Buffalo was not long, and the strangely introduced pair talked glidly. Before they had reached that city, Reymart had been informed by his fair companion that her name was Lydia Mapleson, and that her father was a clergyman in Cleve land. In conversation her delicate beauty was lighted up with the radiance of intelli gence and he was entranced under the spell of her presence by the casual touch of her hand the pure, warm breath that fell upon his cheek. The train had been sent especially to briug the passengers off the wrecked train, and went no further than Buffalo. They could go no further before morning, and the railroad officials had them conveyed to a hotel. 'Good night,' said Reymart, as he press ed the girl's hand, as they parted in the j hotel parlor ; it is now ten o'clock, and we are to take an early train in the morning. I hope to see you fully recovered from the effects of the excitement of the accident when we meet at breakfast' tiooa night,' she replied, 'ana mnny thanks for your kindness.' . Reymart went to bed and tried to sleep ; but for a long time was unsuccessful. His mind was full of Miss Mapleson, and when he did fall asleep it was only to dream of her. And how was it with Miss Mapleson ? She went to her room, and without un dressing, laid down on the bed. She was asleep, and soundly so, to all appearances. until daylight. Then she awoke with start, rubbed her eyes. Bat up in bed and looked at her watch. Just then there was a rap at the door, and a waiter informed her that passengers for the early western train must get up for breakfast. Miss M& pleson arose, smoothed out her traveling dress, washed her face and hands, dressed her hair, and looked lovelier than ever with the flush of early rising. She met Rey mart at the dining room door, and they took their seats at the table. And have you quite recovered Rey mart asked. Indeed, 1 am afraid not,' she replied with a faint smile; '1 am really ill this morning, and fear you will have to leave me here another day.' Leave you!' he said warmly: 'you have no friends here ?' No, but doubtless I shall get kind atten tion here in the hotel, and 1 may be able to get on by to-morrow. I can telegraph to my father, too, and he can come for me. 'A day or two will make no difference with me,' he said, 'and, if you will allow me, I will remain. She was silent, and he feared be had pre sumed too far. 'My motives are honest,' pleaded the poor fellow. 'I only wish to be of service to you.' 'I believe you,' she answered, 'and only feared that your polttenes had led you lo offer too much. I shall be very grateful, and my father too, will scarcely know how to thank you.' She could eat nothing ; her head ached, she said, and was dizzy. Reymart aided her to her room, and she lay down on her bed again. 'O, it's nothing seriotis, she said, sweet ly, in answer to his apprehensive look; and excitement throws me into just such attacks, and they never last long.' 'Shall I get a doctor ?' 'O, no ; I never could take any medicine it's too nasty and I will get well quicker without it' 'Shall I telegraph to your father.' 'If you please.' She wrote a message herself on a page from Reymart's memorandum book, and he went out to send it When he had gODe she rang the bell, and a boy answered the summons. 'Take this to a druggist's,' she said, writing an order in the form of a physi cian's prescription, 'and bring back what it calls for.' After the lapse of ouly a few miuutea the boy returned, and handed her a small vial. Soon after Reymart. too-"iturned. .--'I have sent the rsasV ne aid, 'and now, I supper can "e kt by going aww and letting you sleep ; but you can P"1 r me if yu want anything dur the day.' 'No, don't go,' she said, gently detaining him. 'I couldn't sleep, and should be frightfully lonesome if left alone. Stay and talk to me please.' The task was by no means oo irksome one to the infatuated young man. The forenoon passed before he scarcely knew it so agreeable was his enslaver's society, to piquant her conversation, so pure, childish, and graceful her manner. At noon, at his urging, she ate a slight meal of toast and tea, and announced that she felt much bet ter. He proposed a ride, urging thai the air would improve her, and she consented. 'I'll go to a livery stable and select the best available beast ' he said, jocosely, 'but don't expect too much.' While he was gone she arose, brushed her hair, which she had allowed to flow over the pillow, and put on her cloak and hat. Reymart found her ready when he returned, and with natural pride he helped his attractive charge into the carriage. The day was bright and warm, and the way which he took a shaded road led him into the country most picturesque. With his lovely companion lightly touching his side, with her voice thrilling him, with her eyes looking shyly into his, it is necessary to state that Reymart enjoyed the ride ? They talked of the fields and farm houses which they passed, of themselves, of their likes and dislikes while the hours flew by almost unnoticed. Twilight settled down upon them, and under its cover Reymart drew the girl to his breast, and told the impassioned words his sudden but over powering love felt for her. 'I know that this is precipitate,' he pleaded, 'and, perhaps, foolishly rash, but I mu9t speak now or risk losing you forever. We might never meet again, and I should carry through life the words which I neg lected to speak.' Miss Mapleson allowed him to hold her in his arms, while her fair head dropped upon his breast, while her hand went to her pocket, and produced the vial for which she had sent the boy in the morning. Deftly, and unperceived by her companion, she poured the contents upon her handker chief. It was chloroform 1 With the saturated handkerchief in her hand, she gently folded her arms around Reymart's neck, bringing the chloroform close to his nostrils and mouth. So blinded was he by his passion, so enraptured by her embrace, that he did not realize the presence of the pungent odor of the drug, un til it bad partially stupefied him. Then, bewildered by the strange torpor that was stealing over him, he strove feebly to push the handkerchief from his face. But she held it closer now, throwing herself on him, and pressing it to his mouth and nose. He lost consciousness, and his head fell back listlessly. The demure M'ibs Mapleson showed no signs of sickness or indecision. The road wa6 dark and deserted, but she knew that the work must be done quickly, ner soft, white hands went rapidly to his pocket, abstracting his money the thousands which he had unsuspectingly told her of and a fine gold , watch. Then she pulled hi limp body to the side of the carriage and tumbled it into the road. The horse had been walking slowly during all this ; but now she seized the reius, applied the whip, and went spinning towards the city. Arriving at a quiet street, she got out, left tue horse and vehicle standing, and walked quickly away. An hour later she took a train for New York.' , That dose of chloroform cost Charley Keymart deeply, but it effectually cured mm or romance. He managed, by a hard struggle, to replace the etoleu money, and never breathed of his adventure to a livin soul. ' Two years later chance led him into a criminal court in New York city. A young and beautiful woman had just been convicted of Bhop-lifting, and sentenced to a long term of imprisonment in the peni tentiary. It was Miss Mapleson, now Dora Mathews. And what is her real name ?' asked Reymart of au old detective, who sat at his side. Why, bless you,' was the reply, 'she's got a dozen names,' and nobody knows which is the real one.' 'Is she an old offender ?' " 'Rather.' .... , , 'What is her particular line ?' Anything and everything. I've known her for ten yers, and a quarter of that time she's been in prison. She's the smartest confidence woman that ever breathed.' 'She could swindle anybody, and her beauty is her strong point,' replied Charley Reymart. ftiisccllancons. Last Days) r Galileo. The trial and imprisonment of Galileo form the final scene in the death of the Ita- 1 - ,, PH. ... . nan intellect. Jine most eminent geuius of his country, if not of his asie, almost the founder of modern science, the peer and co temporary of Shakspeare, Bacon, Milton, the successor of Michael Angelo, had Ga lileo obtained an utterance in Italy for sci entific truth, the spell that rested upon her might have been broken. There might have bloomed once more a literature touch ed by the free spirit of Dante, a political progress that would have reflected the Pu ritanic revolutions of the north. But with Galileo fell the independence of Italian thought His abjuration is the saddest picture in modern intellectual history. Conscious of the truth, he was condemned to renounce it and repeat a falsehood. The Newton, the Ilerschael of his age, he was forced to abjure the favorite studies of his ife, aud pause forever in that path of sci entific discovery which had already made Italy famous. All the world witnessed his fall, and he whose eyes had first pierced the mysterious vault above, who of all his race had first brought back tidings of new suns and planets in its snmlime abyss. yielded to terrors of torture, the fear of death, and sacrificed the integrity of his soul to the menaces of the church. With malignant joy the Jesuits saw the last great Italian perish within their toils, and were perhaps satisfied with the humiliation of Galileo. Wheu at the close of his splendid career, Covered With iruiwii, r ila. r Arcetra, the prisoner or toe inqui sition, watched by envious eyes, threaten ed, should he murmur or rebel, with the most dreadful punishment of the church, Galileo, sick and worn with age and sor row, lamented in letters to his friends that he had ever ventured upon those fatal stu dies which had served only to bring upon him persecution and shame. A fair-haired, blue-eyed poet of the north, who was just entering with an equal ardor upon the search for truth, visited the bright skies of Florence, saw with astonishment the im prisonment of Us greatest geuius,and heard, perhaps, from his own lips the unmerited sorrows that had fallen upon his later years. It was Milton lamenting for Gali leo. In the cultivated society of Florence the young English scholar must often haye remembered Ibe lonely prisoner who, shut out from all the pleasures of intellectual intercourse, was confined in the dis taut villa. Milton at Florence wrote verses, wascomplimented in graceful stan zas, and was not slow to return the ele gant adulation. Yet with all the more in telligent Florentines he saw typified in the fate of Galileo the quick extinction of Ital ian letters. Ia his defence of the freedom of the press, he relates to the English pub lic how a severe Inquisition bad checked at Florence all mental progress, how the accomplished Florentines lanlented that they had not been born in a land like England, where learning was free, how nothing was now written ia Italy but "flattery and fustian." "There," he adds, "it was that I found and visited the famoua Galileo, grown old, a prisoner to the In quisition." The spectacle of the great philosopher, silenced, terrified, contemned, never passed from his mind. In his youth he lamented over him tenderly. In man hood, when a mental tyranny like that which hung over Italy seemed about to en velop all England, and a persecuting church and a despotic king had nearly subdued its virtue, Milton, instructed by the fate of Italian thought, led on the defenders of freedom. ' And when, in bis old age, blind and forsaken like Galileo, he poured forth in sonorous strains the treasures of a life of study, one of his most splendid similes, one of his most touching allusions, is when he paints the Tuscan artist on the heights of Fiesole, and makes the chief glory of science lend aid to the immortal grandeur of his song. Galileo's Telescope. In the year 1609, Galileo relates, he first heard from a friend in Flanders that an instrument had been invented by which distant objects were brought near and the power of vision extended. He resolved at once to imitate and surpass it. By his singular mechani cal dexterity, his knowledge of optics and his highly polished glasses, he was soon able to produce a telescope before which the Dutch instrument sank into neglect, and was forgotten. It was never more heard of; but a thrill of wonder passed over Italy and Europe when it was known that the famous Panduan professor had prepared an optic glass that enlarged the bounds of vision and endowed mankind with new powers. The charm of surpass ing novelty covered the wonderful revela tion with an unprecedented renown. The great and the learned contended for the possession of the new instrument Galileo carried his telescope to Venice, and from the tallest bell-towen, saw through the magic glass great argosis sailing far out at sea, and the distant shores brought near and made visible. All the- value of the -new instrument broke at once upon their minds ; it must change the principles of military strategy, and diminish the perils of navigation. Magistrates, senators, citi zens covered the fortunate inventor with . applause. With discreet courtesy, Galileo presented his telescope to the Doge at a a friendly audience, aud the Venetians t once raided his salary to a thousand flo rins. Covered with honors and emolu ments, he returned to Padua, little con scious of the surpassing discoveries that ' yet awaited him in the silent heavens, or the pains and woes he was destined to bear in his later years from heretical revela tions of his too truthful and fatal telescope. Eugene Lawrence, in Jlarptrs Ma- ' gazine, for August A IlHIrl Tears Atj. One hundred years ago there was not a single white man in what is now Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana or Illinois. Then, what ia . now the most flourishing part of the United States was as little known as the country -' in the heart of Africa itself. It was not till 1776 that Boone left his home in North Caroliua to become the first settler in Ken- , tucky. And the first pioneers of Ohio did -not settle till twenty years later stilL A . hundred years ago Canada belonged to France, and Washington was a modest Virginia Colonel, and the United States the most loyal part of the British empire, and scarcely a speck on the political h orison indicated the struggle that in a score of ears was to lay the foundation of the greatest republic in the world. . A hundred years ago there were but four small newspapers in America ; steam en gines had not been magined, and locomo tives, and steamboats, and railroads, and telegraphs, and postal cards, and friction matches, and revolvers, and percussion caps, and breech loading guns, and furnace, and gas for dwellings, and Ini rubber shoes, and Spanlding's glue, and sewine machines, anthracite coal, and photo graphs, and chromo paintings, and kero sene oil, and the safety lamp, and the com? pound blow-pipe, and free schools, and Brussels carpet, and lever watches, and greenbacks, like the present meaning of. of these terms, were utterly nnknown. A hundred years ago the spinning-wheel was in almost every family, and clothing -was 8 pun and woven and made in the house bold, and the printing press was a cumb rous machine worked by hand ; and a nail,, or a brick, or a knife, or a pair of shears or scissors, or a razor, or a woven pair of stockings, or an axe, hoe, or shovel, or a lock or key, or a plate of gloss of any size was not made in what is now the United States. Even in 1890 there were only seventy-five post offices in the country, and the whole extent of our post routes was !es than 1,300 miles. Cheap postage was un heard of, and bad any one suggested the transmission of messages with lightning speed he would have been thought utterly insane. The microscope, on one band, and the telescope on the other, were in their in-' ' fancy as instruments of science; and geology and chemistry were almost un- know. In a word, it is true that to the century passed nave oeen aaitKieu iuoYb iu- provements, in their bearing on the com fort and happiness on mankind, than to any other which has elapsed since the creation of thb world. With all these wonderful improvements within the century, who would allow such narrow and contracted views to a suitable Centennial celebration of the marvelous progress of the age ?

A man born with a good sound constitution, a good stomach, a good heart, good limbs, and a pretty good head-piece, is rich. Good bones are better than gold ; tough muscles better than sil ver ; and nerves that flash fire and carry energy to every function are better than bouses or land. It is better than a landed estate to have the right kind of father or mother. Good breeds and bad breeds ex ist among nuto as really as among herds and horses. Education may do much to check bad tendencies or develop good opes ; but it is a greater thing to inherit the right proportion of faculties to start with. The man is rich who has a good disposition who is naturally kind, patient, cheerful and hopeful. . Stop Treating. A bill has been pass ed by the California Legislature, making it a misdemeanor to invite any person to take a drink at a public bar. This is a move in ' the right direction, and it is a rule in Eu rope, without a law,tocorapel its observance. In other civilized nations a man will take his drink when he wants it, and let his neighbor do the same. In Germany yon would as often be asked to take a hat or a pound of butter as a drink. In these coun tries, therefore, it is possibio for a man to go into a public bar-room and take one drink and go about his business ; in Ameri ca the chances are that he meets one, two or three friends, and when each treats, every man has more than he wanted, and many a man goes away Intoxicated who would have left the place sober if he had been allowed to tend to his own personal irrigation, without the interference of this silly custom. To abolish 'treating' is a movement in favor of temperance. Rules for tiib Cars of Canart Birds.
