SATl'BDAY, - fCTOBER 2C, 1872. JADES . CHAMBERS, Editor. EDITORIAL. P1KA6BAFH8. At last Indiana has achieved the honor of furnishing an actual realization of the old-time genealogical puzzle which has periodically racked the brains of newspaper readers. An elderly inhabi tant of that State has married the daugh ter of his own wife, and thus trans formed himself into his daughter-in-law's son-iu-law. his grandson's half- brother, his own grandfather, and all the other puzzling relations that are in cident to such an eccentric connection. Generosity is sometimes developed In the most unexpected places. One often lieura or extra remuneration oeing re' fused by those from whom- it is asked, but seldom by those to whom it is offered. For which reason the recent action of some Scotch miners at Wishaw may be considered remarkable enough to be worthy of chronicle. They voluntarily refused an offered advance of a shilling per day in their -vfagea, on the ground that the coal dealers had raised the price of coal seveu shillings per ton, and they were unwilling to lie under the impu tation of having: occasioned such in creased price. As they expressed it in a public meeting, they desired the mas ters to "take the last advance off coal and. take back the shilling." Utopia may be a possibility, after all. Every intelligent person has not yet quite reaohed the point of agreeing with counsel for the defense that the perpetration of 'any criminal action t whatsoever is, ipue facto, irrefragible proof of insanity, but assuredly no ' one except a lunatic could De guilty 01 the barbarity recently committed in the famous picture gallery of Berlin the mutilation of five inasteroieces bv artists of old renown. The proverbial cunning of a lunatic was manifested iu the mar ring of afresh picture on each succes sive day without detection, despite the .vigilauce of numerous guards, and even : now no clue has been found to the au thor of the mischief. Lunatic or. no lunatic, however, if the miscreant were caught it would not be necessary to be an enthusiast about art to find it in the heart to render a verdict entailing capi tal punishment, were one which heaven forbid adjudged imbecile enough to sit ' on a modern jury. The recent anniversary of the de struction of Chicago by fire has given rise to a great deal of statistical writing and innumerable calamitous reminis cences. Among other claims put for ward is 'one that the burned city has been rebuilding itself during the past eight months at the rate of one four- story edifice for every hour of the work ing day. 1 Assuming that it would re quire an average force of at least twenty men to complete one such building in right mouths, and counting eight hours as a day's work, this computation would imply that 33,600 mechanics are steadily employed iu the actual raising of houses , in Chicago, to say nothing of the nil incrops auxiliary handicraftsmen whose home labor contributes to the finishing ami ornamentation of each structure These latter being, at the lowest esti mate, as many as the builders proper, it follows that nearly one-fourth of the en tire imputation of Chicago, men, women and children, is engaged in the manual toil of house-building. Outside interference is never accepta ble, even in those exceptional cases when it is productive of good results, and yet it would not, after all, be an utterly unpraiseworthy action for for eign governments to nrotest .against the treatment even to this day received by the Ciimmunists of France, at the hands of M. Theirs. France itself must be very apathetic in regard to common hu manity, and the opinion of the civilized world to allow these unfortunate politi- i-al prisoners to be executed needlessly, d:iy after flay but this is by no means llie worst. Some of the prisoners in the . -ilad-l of Tort Louis, lately wrote a lct ier to the Cormire giving some account iof flic way in which they are treated there. Their food consists of dry veg etables, and combined with sea air aud ivunt of tobacco, has given rise to de ' sea ws of the gums; scurvy is prevalent in its worst forms, aud the whole medi- . cal treat ment prisoners receive, consists f4 pills of bismuth and aloes. In the in- : iiniury the beds are without sheets and ilic, in fact, nothing but pieces of tent eanvas. The suneringls naturally great, jind . no measures have been taken to lessen it though the Secretary of the Interior has been memorialized about the matter, , A coteaipokary says that "a journal ist should lie honest and truthful," add ing: ' J t is a lamentable fact that there are men conducting newspapers who Maud ready to prostitute their columns by selling out to the highest bidder." So doubtless there are; but it is not the men who stand ready to sell out and who lo sell out that do the mischief. A pro clivity for prostitution is incompatible with influence, and the purchaser gets iiotliiiiz for ins outlay. More evil is ikuie by journalists who are not strictly and directly venal Who assume the truth or the falsehood of that which they U'.sire to be true or otherwise, and take no trouble to examine the sources of their information. Each party in the country has its body of mythology which bears little more resemblance to ihe truth than the mythologies of an tiquity do to the facts of which they are tlw distorted echoes; and this collection i' the ghosts of old falsehoods, enmities and misconceptions constitutes the pabn- , hint upou which the adolescent party journalist is fed, and the historic ma terial his professional education. The average party journalist; has been raised m a diet of party newspapers. The ':Usijoods generated during the heat of .jiaat party conflicts he accepts as facts iind tneats as history; the result of which s that his knowledge is worse tliau ignorance, for it is the reflection of mylUs fabricated for temporary pur poses, and which were scarcely credited the day of their fabrication. It is this ulass of journalists, not wittingly dis botaest, hut far from scrupulous, who . tnisfaad tltoee whom they profess to in struct, )cCAHiojf iut a proposition is made, or theory elaborated, so far out of the usual ul ordinary course of thought or ieeling that its reception is marked by a profound commotion throughout the ranks of thinking men.. STor does the final defeat or triumph of the new inundation effect in the least the agU- cation attending its appearance. The ' uoveltr startles, even though the judg ; rncut condemns. Of such a nature was rlie proposition recently made by Prof. TynfieH.to-test the efficacy of prayer ju Stealing the sick, by an actual trial of siiuplc prayer as opposed to the regular medical practice. But it is somewhat siu- gular that all the disputants have, with singular unanimity of carelessness overlooked the well-aiithenticateil facts of the history of Dorothea Trudel, whose establishment at Maiinedorf, on Lake Zurich. Switzerland, .has lieen for sev eral years the frequent scene of some of the mo.t wonderful occurrences in the way of heal ing desperate cases of dis ease on record, approaching even to the miraculous, And although Miss Tru del, the founder of this establishment, has been dead for some years, it is still carried on with wonderful success by one of her pupils, on the simple theory which she practiced, that "the prayer of faith shall heal the sick." During her life her enemies made the most violent attempts to break up her hospitals, and her opponents even sought the interfer ence of the highest courts of the coun try, but in every instance she triumphed, and the courts decided most positively iu her favor. Her simple method of proceeding was that laid down in the Scriptures: "Anoint the sick with oil, and pray over them." In another column will be found sev eral interesting reports as to the rise and spread of the disease which is destroy ing horses by the thousand throughout th entire East, and which is creating a panic from one end of the country to the other. Orisinatine iu Canada and carried into Xew York, it is now work ing its way into the West, and there ought not to lie a moment lost ?y the people of this State in putting them selves on their guard. In the articles referred to will be found valuable ad vice, both as to the care and treatment of the disease; but although attention to these may serve an excellent purpose after the disease shall have reached here, yet this knowledge ought not in any way to prevent a-demand for efficient measures to be adopted to prevcuttne transportation of horses from the East or from Canada, and a consequent spread of the contagion westward. Bailroad comDanies ouaht to see that no horses are carried, and that even cars in which horses have lately been transported iu the infected regions should be prevented from coming this way. During the prevalence of the Texas cattle disease, measures were taken by the Governor and on authority of the Legislature, to orevent the spread of the contagion Our Governor may be warranted in tak ing similar action now. There ought to be, if there is not, a general law under which prompt and stringent measures could be adopted by the State Executive in every emergency such as the present one. Hut whether or not autnoritive steps will be taken in this direction, at least it is possible for each one to pre pare for the threatened visit, and, as af fording valuable hints upon the subject, we again recommend a careful perusal of the articles referred to. Whatever may be the ultimate result of the present political contest, one fact, at least, has been so thoroughly devel oped by the Kepublican party papers, as to bid fair to remain a permanent im pression upon the sober second-thought of the American people, if not upon that of the entire civilized world and that is the prolific power exhibited by politi cal, and especially Republican, organ izations in the production of bad men ; or the converse of this, that the parti- zan paper is utterly unworthy of cre dence, and ought to be the first subjoct of the reform It so persistently harps upon. The present controversy is marked by two very peculiar features. First, the gre.it extent to which it is made up of personal attacks not vitu peration merely, but serious charges, in the support of which actual proof is tendered ; and second, the still worse one that, as the quarrel is, for the most part, confined to members of the same political family, the impression must become general that the contestants have had rare opportunities of knowing each other, and that we owe our knowl edge to the blind wrath which, for the moment, makes them lose sight of the prudence found convenient in the past to cover their misdeeds. Forlthe first time iu the history of Government the President is charged with personal dishonor. And from this high oflice we pass down a line of fifty thousand office holders, made up of men who in the past were guilty of all the crimes known to the criminal code, and are now en gaged in an active violation of law that includes theft, bribery, ballot-stuffing. and importation of votes for the pur pose of continuing themselves in the offices they disgrace. On the other hand we arc informed through the press and upon the stump that all the leading Lib eral Republicans are and have been ex ceedingly dishonest, and in support of tliis, crimes and misdemeanors are spec ified, and the proof ofiered in great abundance to sustain each charge. Is not the natural, indeed, the inevitable. consequence of all this that unprejudiced lookers on, such as the people are, must end in believing both sides. Will they not say that if these charges are true then those men are rogues: if untrue. that they are a body of libelous falsi fiers. And our friends may select either conclusion. As a party is always judged of by the men it throws to the surface. the conclusion must lo that this one, or ganized for reform and based on the humanities, has ended like Hamlet': dead dog, when shone upon by the sun in a multitudinous production of mag gots. Or it must be believed that the charges are made by Irresponsible papers, for campaign purposes, and without one grain of truth to give color to their wholesale and villainous denun ciations. But is not either conclusion equally a disgrace?

Of volume so brilliant in all those fea tures which render a magazine attrac tive, the Xovember number is a worthy conclusion. The Editorial Departments are as en tertaining as usual. The Easy chair dis cusses Woman Suffrage, tells the thrill- mgstory of the burning ot the liienvme, and comments upon Mr. Charles O'Con nor s Ideal Democracy. I ue scientine Record contains a very full summary of Scientific Progress. The Atlantic Monthly for November is good as usuai. "Jefterson's return from France iu 1719" is Parton's contribu tion, in hi well known style, In -'The Primeval Ghost World" John Fiske sets out to show "by what mental process the myth maker can speak of natural objects iu language whicn implies tnat tney are animated persons," and the result is a very curious and entertaining paper. C. W. Stoddard tells the story of "A Prodigal in Tahiti" in a way to charm the reader by his tale of "hard lines" in that lotos-eating region. Henry James, Jr., continues his "Guests confession," and there is a story by a nameless au thor, purporting to tell of "A Dinner Party," and in reality describing au ex ceedingly clever burglar, who was ev idently rather proud ot nis skihiui crime. O. W. Holmes is again at nis best in "The Poet at the Breakfast Ta ble." there beinz considerable humor and interest infused into the story of the boarders and their landlady, as well as some verv shrewd onservations on ine and manners. De Mille is rather tragic in this month's instalment of "The Com edy or Terrors." The critical depart ments are ffliea witn jusi ami aiscnm- iuating notices of art and literary top ics. , There are five poetical contribu tions, comprising a "Nocturne" by Har riet Preston Snonord.

Holland's new novel, "Ar thur Boiinieastle." begins in Scribner's for November the initial number of another volume of the magazine. It will be a New England Story, in auto biographical form. In the opening chapter the hero describes a notable event of his childhood, and introduces the reader to some curious characters. The exquisite design by Mrs. Ilallock, which stands at the head ot the install ment, is itself a story and a poem. Dr. Holland's editorial contributions to the present number are more extensive than usual. In "Topics of the 'lime" he dis cusses "Pere liyacmtne's juarriage.'- which he strongly defends, "Civil Ser vice Reform, " "Prayers ana mis," The Outsiders," anil "The Power of the Affirmative." The first article of the number is a profusely illustrated paper by Miss Edna Dean Proctor, on "Northern Russia and St. Petersburgh." E. W. Sturdy, an officer of the U. S.

New York, Oct. 20, 1872. Dear Journal: Winter is almost upon us, and the cry of the multitude (feminine) is "what to wear!" Some body says, and a great many somebody's have quoted, that "time puts an end to all things," but fashion has so far given the lie to ihis quotation, keeping pace with them in a most astonishing man ner. October generally comes to us ready dressed with gorgeous leaves and bright skies, and wre generally meet October in the same way j it is the one month in the year when the toilettes of ' last winter and the past summer may be blended and divided. New clothes in October are an affectation, and altogether the most prominent month of the whole year, It does not like other months bring with it a style of its own for the benefit of the fashionable world; as au old country woman whom I met in Stew art's tile other day expressed it; "It's a sort of betwixt and betweeu month," and I suppose too it is only proper that we should greet it with "betwixt and between" costumes. But after October comes November and after that Decem ber aud so on, and these months are very dictatorial in the matter of dress, You can't palm off any of your half and halt on them, lhey demand homage aud they receive it too, from the poorest snop girl m tne metropolis to the i mil Avenue queen. Aow, then, for what will do them most honor. Serges and alpacas are considered the most stylish for winter and fall and win ter suits; the invisible blue and green serges are universally worn. lie dresses for the street are being made shorter than ever, while demi-trains are en tirely out of fashion. Polonaises have had their day and Basques aye npw taKing their place: Overdresses are still worn, but made very much shorter than those that were heretofore the rage. The latest is sim ply au open point tied at the back with a bow and broad ends of the material over a skirt trimmed elaborately with small ruffles on the back breadths and a deep skirt plaiting on the front width The overdress I speak of is trimmed ac cording to the fancy and with basque to mate!), cringes are very much worn, and always give a graceful appearance to the garments. Velvet takes the plaoe of satins for trimnpngs, as tlfey have a richer look and wear much better. Small ruffles are worn more than ever; they even extend them far enough to dispense with an overdress altogether. A very neat walking suit is one of black alpaca, gabrielle pattern vest front.and finished off with a small cape extending jijst bejpw the waist; the skirt of course may be trimmed as elegantly as one may choose, hiit the beauty of this tpiletto is that no undress or fancy basque is neces sary to complete it. Cassimere sacques are worn as much as ever, trimmed with lace, gimp, and small black beads. Eve ning dresses are larger than usual, but trimmed very little; the waists are made with a deep point front and back laced or buttoned in the back. For full dress thin materials are preferred, arid white seems to take the lead ; fichus are are still worn by those whose bones are prominent, but for young ladies with plump necks and shoulders nothing is better than a low-neck dress without ornament, Speaking of ornaments, iet s ngaip in great demand ; it is the most becoming of all jewelry to any eye. ' Hats, which are higher than ever in the crown, are to be trimmed with velvet and jet scattered here and there amidst a profusion of lark atyd ostrich tips, which are always fash ionable', winter and summer. About the prettiest hat t inivo seun ts season was an Imported one of dark blue velvet square crown, but perfectly plain ovofr a high frame anil rolling down, the full ness was brought across the crown on o;je side and there fastened with loops of the vulyet lined with very light blue gros grain s'li'li',' finished off with a face of thread lace over about a 'dozeu. loop of bright blue ribbon the shade of the' silk. The contrast is very striking and the effect exceedingly pretty. Turbans are to be worn but very little. For e-ening bonnets, with high face trimming and made of light silks, are more dressy than the round hat with the same furbelows. The gloves for street wear are of the darker colors, with stitching and two buttons on the wrist, while for full dress four buttons are said to dress the arm more ; some even wear eight or ten, but wheu they get to that number they might as well cxteud them to the elbow and be done with it. There is scarcely auvthing new in the way of collars or ties; rulrles are worn by nine- tenths of the ladies, but some plain peo ple think a linen collar neater, and in that c:ise wear them with little corners turned down in front, just to set off the still appearance ot a standing collar, while silk ties are much worn atTpresent, and are quite pretty, but something new is in the shape of a square handkerchief of silk U-iniuied witti deep toliage, U be put on doubled and thrown carelessly around the shoulders aud fastened in front with a loose hook or breastpin. Across tiie Continent. LETTER NUMBER THIRTEEN June 2oth found me at the Moqui towns in Arizona. Four days I spent with this curious people, and every moment of my stay was full of interest. That there should be a race of unwarlike, half-civilized Indians, living in towns built of stone and cement, upon a rock 1200 feet high in the center of Arizona, is in itself a fact of stupendous interest. In their case curiosity grows by what it feeds upon. I learned a little of their lauguage au I religion, more of their mode of life and social organization, and saw that their residences indicated taste and skill in architecture; but as to their origin and the history of their civ ilization I confess I have no clear theo ry. They are the most kind, civil, uu war like and hosuitablc people I ever met; a simple race of shepards, without imple ments of war and with no traditions of a time when they were hostile. The seven towns one Tequa, one Oribay, and five Moqui are sunposed to contain 3,000 people, evideutly not increasing. They are the remnants of that once nu merous race whose ruins are scattered over Arizona, seems evident; hut wheth er Aztec, Toltec, or common Pueblo, have no opinion. lhe main par ty of Navajoes started westward yester day, and to-day my guide, to .whom I gave the name or Jolin, ami myseii set out in a direction north by northwest, and traveled all uay through line pas ture lauds along the eastern base of a rocky ridge. About sundown we crossed ttie north ern end of this vidge, and from a peak a thousand feet or so above the plain, John pointed out to mfe the great canyon of the Colorado, some thirty miles north ward, and the Black Forest on the northern slopes of the San Francisco 31ountaiiis,apparently sixty miles south west ot ns. At the toot ot this pciiK we filled our waterings, and made a "dry camp" four miles further on, in a circu lar valley rich in bunch grass. Jtoie 2UtA. Ott at:t;A.M., and in live hours reached a beautiful valley which, John informs ine, contains the only run ning spring on our route. Here we find five families of Navajoes, the richest band of that tribe I have vet seen. We galloped down into their camp just as they were bringing in their herds to the morning watering: a thousand or twelve hundred sheep and goats were filling the vale with their bleating, and a magnifi cent herd of nearly two hundred horses swept around us iu giaceful circles. They had abundance of milk, cheese and mutton, for sale cheap, and the tract was rich in grass; so we remained here the entire day. This band is of that party knowii as "Outlaw Navajoes"; they range westward to the Mormon settle ments, and are accused of having stolen a herd ot horses tnere two years ago. They are quite civil and friendly, never interfering with whites; but uo not ac knowledge the party on the Reservation or hold themselves bound by its treaties. With them was a bright lad oi twenty years, who had been six years a prison er among the Mexicans and spoke Span ish fluently ; he acted as my interpreter whenever my Navajoe and sign-language gave out, and we spent the day in a very social manner. He is called Espagnol by the other In dians. The band has many copper ket tles, german-silver dippers, Spanish bridles and saddles, and altogether the finest general outfit I had yet seen. They sen A once or twice every year a party to the Mormon towns or into New Mex ico to trade their blankets for stock and other articles. The Navajoe blanket is noted everywhere in the mountains. I have two, for whicn I paid but five dol lars, as they are of the common sort; but either of them will hold water for two hours, and turn rain almost as well as gum. They say that "many, many years ago, in the time of our grandfath ers, a woman came from the west coun try and taughtthem to weave these blan kets." For tlris cause it is a point of honor never to strike or abuse a woman. They are the most tin-Indians of all In dians in the West. June'27th-Ve wereoff at sun up, and soon entered the wildest and most terri bly barren region 1 had yet seen. One hour we toiled across a high bare sand rock, without a trace of soil, aud the next went down, down, apparently in to the bowels of the earth, iu a narrow canyon whose frowning walls seemed to pearly close above ns and shut out the light of day. About noon we worked up one of those gorges and came out up on a ridge from which the hollows ap pear to open northward to the Bay, and southward to the Little . Colorado, and on this we traveled the rest of the day. This forenoon we were overtaken b.f one of the other Navajoe party a boy of sixteen on his way to the Mormon towns with blankets for trade ; and at noon Es pagnol came up, having decided, to, go with us, There stre neither springs or branches on the rout.e and the skill of these Nava joes in finding water-holes iu the sand rock seems to-amount to a sixth sense. Atjevary depression in the ridge they scan the gullies closely, and sometimes dismount to examine if there remains any moisture in the earth at the bottom. If thet'e is mud enough to smear the fin ger, they intimate to me that at a cer tain point on or near the trail t here i,s. a. hole which contains water flvu, or ten, or fifteen days, as the ease may be, lon ger than this one; and, as this one has been dry only so many days, therefore the other contains enough for us and our stock. Then at the point indicated we travel off the trail to the water-hole, and always find their calculations correct. Twice to-day we find water, and fill our jugs for another "dry camp." The Na vajoe jug is made of fine wicker-work? gummed inside and out; is very light and convenient for carrying water a long distance. We camp in a sort of hollow some two miles square, and nci' in grass, just south of fhe main ridge. Beaple. NEWS OF THE WEEK East, West, North & SQirtk, Q-IEZIsriEIR.A.I-. NEWS .a.:b:r,0-A:d.

The following is a synopsis of the re port of the Statistician, Department of Agriculture, upon the condition ot the cotton crop i n October : The cotton crop has undergone no serious change since the September report. The condition is red need from 91 in the first week in Sep tember to 82 iu October, in October of last year, the average was 70, which was a material reduction from that of the previous mouth. It will be seen that the condition is still placed higher than in last year's report for October, while the area, according to our June returns, was 13 per cent, greater. No reports, official or personal, have been received at the Navy Department relative to any improper conduct on the part of white cadets at the Naval Acad emy toward colored cadets, as recently published in a letter from Annapolis. Iu the absence of any official advice on the subject, the department does not be lieve that the alleged misconduct oc curred. Several naval officers, just ar rived here from Annapolis, say they know nothing of the reported disorders. Attorney General Williams authorizes an emphatic denial of the statement that ho intends to retire from the Cabinet, after the Presidential election. His withdrawal from the Oregon Senatorial contest was for the purpose of remain ing in his present position, and it should lie stated as a fact, based on equally good authority, that Colonel Bristow, the So licitor General, has no ambition to be Judge Williams' successor, it being known that he will soon retire from that office to engage in other pursuits.

The heavy sea in which she labored tin the the uight of her loss, caused her to spring a leak that no human foresight could have previously determined, and she succumbed to a similar . influence that has caused other staunch vessels to founder similar circumstances.

Hon. J. S., Uoutwell, Secretary of the Treasury! Washington, D. C : ' Sir: The growth and increase of the interests of this country, and the mate rial wealth so unprecedentedly augmen ted during the jiiist lour years, especi ally require, in our judgment, increased facilities for the transaction of the inter nal commerce of the. country, and more particularly so at this time of the year, and while we entertain the highest re spect for the great, financial ability which characterized your administra tion of the finances of the Government, and are therefore the more reluctant to make any suggestions or recommenda tions vlicl( niight not accord with j'our judgment' in the premises, we would nevertheless most respectfully suggest whether a r-issue of the notes common ly known as greenbacks, amounting to forty-five millions, which were retired by your predecessor, Mr. McCullough, might not, with great benefit to the in dustrial interests of the country, be re issued in exchange for the interest-bearing loan of the Government without se iiously interfering with tho policy you have so steadily and successfully kept in the view, of "appreciating the public credit." If this can be done, it would afford a measure of relief from the pres ent momentary stringency, which, is se riously Injuring the business interests of the country, NEW YORK.

On being taken before Davenport, Federal Elec tion Commissioner, who is also United sautes Commissioner, bail was refused and Heiurich ordered to the Ludlow street jail, lleinrich was again brought before Commissioner Davenport who admitted him to bail in the sum of $5,000 and adjourned a hearing of the case to Thursday. The case excited a great ileal of interest, inasmuch as it involves prin ciples arising under the new election law for New York.

A Rochester dispatch says the Canadi an horse disease, which is now raging with great fervor among all stables iii Western New York, is classed by veter inary authorities under three heads, viz: Catarrhal, rheumatic, aud gastro-crysip-elatous forms. The disease which" has made havoc in that vtcinity Is of a ca tarrhal character. Its first noticeable symptoms are a flow of tears from the eyes, watery discharge from the nose, general langnor, followed by a cough. There has been great devastation among horses in Rochester and Buffalo, owing to improper treatment and niipertect knowledge of the disease. Over three hundred cases have proved fatal in twenty-four hours. In relation to the terrible horse disease which is now spreading throughout the country, we eliu the following from the Buffalo Commercial Advertser of date the ISth: Some days ago an article ap peared in these columns announcing that the horse epidemic which has pre vailed so generally among the horses in Toronto and other Canadian cities has made itsapiiearance in Buffalo. The di sease, wiiien at nrst was couhneu to a few animals, is spreading throughout the city. It is also reported that nearly all the horses in Niagara Falls are af fected with the disease, and that" it lhas extended into the country around that village. It will be remembered that not many months ago a contagions disexse broke out among the horses of the me tropolis, and raged to such extent as to seriously retard business; but whether this is the same epidemic or not we are unable to say. The early symptoms of this disease aresaid to be light hacking cough and general dullness, with an in disposition to move; cold cars and legs, with a watery discharge from the nos trils. At first the nasal membrane is pale but as the disease advances jt becomes highly colored and the mucous discharge changes to a greenish or yellow color, and the pulse becomes more rapid. As soon as these symptoms appear, the an imal should be kept warm iu the stable by blanketing, and warm bran meshes should he given. It should be kept quiet from the first. As diseases of this char acter usually have their origin in had treatment and a total disregard of the rules of cleanness and ventilation, now that it is iu the air, additional care should be taken to keep the atmosphere pure and fresh. For this disease to be come general among our horses would be a serious calamity, and every means possible should be used to check its spread. If the ravages of the epidemic are as great as they are said -to be, it would not be out of place for the city officials to give the matter their attention. Messrs. 'Level & Fralick, lively stable keepers on Ellicott street, between Swan anil Seneca streets, have recently re ceived a letter from Dr. C. Elicott" vete rinary surgeon of St. Catharines, con taining wTliat have proved valuable sug gestions for the treatment of horses suf fering from the epidemic now so prev alent among these animals. Dr. E. ad vises that tiie stable be well ventilated the horses blanketed and chloride of lime be sprinkled through the stable ev ery morning, The nostrils should be sponged out two or three times a day, if the mucous adheres thereto. The fowl consists of bran with a little oats, and a moderate quantity of hay. It the bow els are costive, a halt' pi lit of linseed oil may be given ; but it is probable that the mash will cause sufficient relaxa tion. Prescription No. 2 (given below) should be administered every morning and evening. If the throat should be sore which can be ascertained by a pressure upon the larynx about two tablespoon fuls of prescriptions No. 1 (also given be low) should be rubbed in. So long as the disease is confinad to the larynx there is very little danger, but should it descend to the lungs which will be in dicated by the continued standing up of the animal, cold extremities, and la bored breathing a half pound of mus tard should be mixed with two ounces of turpentine and water to the consis tency of thick cream, and tho mixture rubbed well in beiiind the forelegs or over tho regions of the lungs. The legs should be bandaged, if cold. If the pulse should be over lifty-five per min ute fifteen drops of Fleming's "tincture of aconite should be given" every two hours, and if the breathing still contin ues labored, and the pulse grows more rapid, apply the mustard again, and give one and a half drachm of calomel for two morn ings. The following are the prescriptions referred to. ; prescription No. 1 Linseed oil, 1 oz. ; turpentine, oz. ;liquor ammonio fort, 1 oz. Mix all together in a four-ounce bottle, and ar- ply to the throat, if you think it neces sary to uo so. pbksorutiox No. 2 . Nitrate potash, lu oz.; tartarized an timony, oz. ; digtalis, oz. Pulver ize all together and make twelve pow ders; give ono morning aud night. P. S. If they are not very bad you might omit the hist ingrediant namely, digi talis. Canada. The Montreal MasetU, of the 17th, af fords the annexed information iu regard to the progress and nature of the dis- ease.which a dispatcli.elsewhere printed. says is seriously interrupting the busi ness ot . anada : "The horse disease, or, to speak more scientifically, the horse epidemic, since its first appearance iu the city, on Friday or Saturday of last week, ' has spread with such rapidity as to he now general, and the proprietors of the comparatively few horses so far unaffected deem them selves very fortunate indeed. The effects of the epidemic were immediately ap parent yesterday iu the deserted cab stands ami general Sunday appearand: of the streets. Its progress, since first beard of in Toronto, to this city has been astonishingly rapid, thus proving the terribly epidemic nature of the affec tion. Technically, by veterinary sur geons, it, is known as epizootic iiilliieii2a, and is occasioned by atmospheric inlln- ence probably having some connection with the recent thunder storms, which are so well remembered on account of their unusually terrifying nature. The disease is not necessarily a fatal one; so far from its being so, if properly treated at its beginning there will be few deaths. It is characterized by sore throat, slight swelling of tiie glands, loss of appe tite, severe backing cough, with a dis charge of brownish yellow mutter from the nostrils, quick pulse, quickened res piration, great feebleness and yellow ness of the eyes and mucus membrane, the latter giving indication of implica tion of the liver. The respiratory or gans, however, are the principal 'parts affected, but the disease being a blood poison, any animal having had previous disease by which any organ or system of organs have become weakened, will at once show symptoms indicating de rangement ot these organs. With the medicine given by advice of a veterinay surgeon the following treatiuent will hardly fail to effect a cure, w prevent the progress of the disoase or tlus taking ot it. The hovo quite- well or slightly affected should not be taken out in wet weather, and if they have tube so should ho warmly covered. Affected animals should ho kept iu a well ventilated sta ble, and fed upon hot, soft food, easily digested, such as linseed tea, oat meal gruel, and boiled oats or barley. The appetites of invalids should be tempted iy carrots, apples, or any other delicacy our sick quadruped friend is known to nave a tailing tor. In all stables a car bolic disinfectant should be Ubcitajliy used. To know that. the. disease need not he fatal is a consolation, under the circumstances that ciuiuol be too much appreciated. "The number of horses ut present ick may be. imagined wheu It is stated that two thousand horses are under the skillfull treatment of Mr. McK.acbiHU, the we(l known veterinary surgeon." BACKWOODS ELOtll EWE A man on his trial for murder, having becu found guilt3- by the evidence is supposed to have been successfully de fended by his counsel in the following speech, w hich is quite as good a warraiit for the verdicts juries so ofteu render as me usual reasons by which tney attempt to justify their finding; "Thou shalt not kill." "Now, if vou i. i - . . . iiing uiy ciieuc you transgress tne com mand as slick as grease, aud as plump as a goose's egg in a loafer's face. Geu tlemen, murder is murder, whether com mitted by twelve jurymen or au humble individual like my client. Gentlemen, 1 do not deny the fact of my client hav ing killed a man. No such a thing, gentlemen. Ye may bring the prisoner in "guilty," the hangman mav do his duty, but will that exonerate yon? No such thing. In that case you will be murderers. Who among vou is pre pared for the brand of Cain to be stamped upon his brow to-day? Who, freemen? Who in this land of liberty and light? Gentlemen, I will pledge my word not. one of you has a bowie knife. No, gentlemen, your pockets are odoriferous with the fumes of cigar cases and tobacco. You can smoke the tobacco of rectitude in the pipe of a peaceful conscience. But hang my un fortunate client, and the scaly alligators of remorse will gallop through the in ternal principles of your animal viscera, until the spinal vertebra? of your ana tomical construction is turned into a railroad for the grim and gory goblins of despair. Gentlemen, beware ol committing murder! Beware, I say, of meddling with the eternal prerogative! Gentle men, 1 adjure you, by the manumitted ghost of temporary "sanctity, to do no murder! I adjure you, by the name of woman, the main-spring of the ticking timepiece of time's theoretical transmi gration, to do no murder! 1 adjure you, by the love you have for the esculent and coridimental gusto of your native pumpkin, to do no murder ! I adjure you. by the American eagle, that whipped the universal game-cock of creation, and is now roosting on the magnetic tele graph of time's illustrious transmigra tion, to do no murder! And lastly, if you expect to wear store-made coats ; if you ever expect free dogs not to bark at you ; if you ever expect to wear boots made of the free hide of the Rocky Mountain buffalo; and, to sum up all, if you ever expect to be anything but sueaking, low-flung, rascally, braided small ends of humanity, whittled Cown into indistinctibility, acquit my client and save your country.
