Messrs. Wolf and Powell of Las Vejina,

consequently, much interest was manifest

mado from seventy five pans of good enrth

It would add CO per cent to the looks of the

The Foundress and present Superioress
of the Convent of the Sisters of Loretto in
this city wishes through the medium of the
Gazette to present their humble appeal to
the generosity of their many kind friende
and benefactors, lo aid them in securing
their new house from the inclemency of the
approaching rainy season. The experience
of the last storm has been sufficient to
demonstrate that the roof will not protect
them from the heavy rains of the coming
summer, which will not only damage Ihe
futnitui e but the walls nf lie building. Owing
to a heavy debt which is still hanging over
the institution, they are unable to make the
necessary repairs themselves, and there
fore appeal for aid to a generous pu'dic.

.seeming'y strange, but probably perfectly
natural, cause in nature, the grcsshopper
epidemic has nearly run its course. The
eggs lack fertility, either froa simple defi
ciency of vitality or from the attack of eome
parasite that hat come into existence to
feed upon them. Opinions differ as to the
real cause, but there is a general feeling of
satisfaction tl at the grasshopper war is in

Come now i nd let us reason together.
Why do people so frequently say to Dr.
Pierc, "1 suppose your Golden Medical
Discovery eures evry ihing"? Because it
has been the practice of knavish charlatans
10 uianuficlure worthless rostrums and at
tempt to dupe the ignorsnt and credult u
by recommending ihe.n to cure every form
of disease. To such au extent has this
been prac iced that it is no wonder that
many have acquired prejudices against all
advertised remedies. But Dr. Pierce docs
not advertise his standard preparations as
"cure-alls" does not claim that they will
perform miracles, but simply publishes the
fact that tbey have beeu ttveloped as
specifics for certain forms of disease f r
which he recommends them, after having
lesifd their efficiency ill many bundled esses
with the most gratifying success. It is a
fact known to every well-informed physi
cian that many single remedies pontes sev
eiul uitTeranl properties. Quinine, for ins
lance, has tonic quality, which luggesta
in case of debility; an anti-periodic, by
which it is ellickciuus id sgie; and a febri
fuge property, which renders it fflicacious
in cases of fever. The result of iti admin
istration will alio vary with ihe quantity
airen and the circumstances under which
it is employed. So, likewúe, the Goldrn
Medical Discovery possesses both pectoral
and alterative, or blood-clesnsipg proper
ties of the highest order By reatno of
these two prominent properles it cures two
classes Ot diseases. First, those of he tes
piratory organs, as throat bronchil, and
lung flections, chronic coughs and asthma,
and second testes of the blood and glan
dular system, in which affections all skill
ful phvsic ans employ alteratives, as in
esses of blotches, eruptions, ulcers, swe'
lines, tumors, abscesses, and in torpor of
he li'er or I 1 cufoess." While its use
i '. bv iU combinstionof properties, sug
ees'ed in cases of pulmonary contomption
yet yr-u need not take it expecting it wll
cu-eyou if yoor lungs are Lalf consumed,
imr because :t 11 recommended as a blrar-d
medicine would its proprietor advise too to
.ake is expecting it to cure cancer. It will
not perfora niirsclrs. but it will cure many
grave forms of disease.
