SUNDAY'JANUARY 31, 1864.
THE CITY.
Letter List.—The Letter List will be
found upon the third page of this issne.
Sudden Death.—Mrs Kitchen, on elder
ly woman residing w Ith her hosband on franklin
street, sear Lake, fell’dcad suddenly while Arising
Is her bedroom on Priday morning last It is said
that she was as intemperate woman.
~ Light Guard.—A meeting of the Chicago
Light Guard was called on Saturday evening to
take into consideration matters, of great Import
ance, bnt the meeting not being numerously at
tended, on adjournment was decided on, to Mon
day evening.
Cambrian Soctett.—The members of the
Cambraln (Welsh) Society, will bold a meeting on
Tuesday evening next, at half-past scran o’clock.
In the Welsh "church,' on Desplainea street, hear
Lake, to make arrangements for the proper ob
servance of Et. Haulers day—tho first of March.
A Substitute fob Eggb.—Eggs are now re
tailing at. ft cm 40 to 50 cents a dozen, cud are sot
to be obtained at that. As a matter of general in
terest, we will state that corn starch is an excel
lent substitute for eggs for culinary purposes, one
spoonful of corn starch being reckoned as equal to
a single egg. ...
The Zouaves.—A dispatch was received
on Saturday night announcing tho arrival of the
Zouaves at Syracuse, New York. They were the
guests of the officers of tho New York-Central
Bailrood and were everywhere received with abun
dant hospitality. It was expected they would
reach New York this morning.
The Pest House and Mobtuaet Statis
tics.—At the regular meeting of the Chicago Med
ical Society, on Friday night, Dr. Bartlett made a
report concerning tho Pest House, situated ou
North avenue, near Clark street. The report does
cot convey a favorable impression of the condi
tion of the Inmates. According to all accounts
they are shamefully neglected by the authorities.
The report was adopted by the Society, and also a
memorial to the Mayor and Connell asking for the
adoption of a better method for obtaining and re
cording mortuary statistics.
Two of a' Trade.—On Saturday morning
Thomas Tracy, an omnibus driver, was charged
before Justice DeWolfi with an assault committed
upon the person of Cornelias Collins, a brother
Jehu. Eaily In the morning a dispute arose be
tween the men, respecting a coat that Tracy ac
cused Collins of damaging, which accusation Col
lins indignantly denied, when language the reverse
of polite was used on both sides, each individual
resorting for compliments to that vocabulary pos
sessed so eminently- by the driving fraternity.
Towards the dose of the controversy which was
listened to throngbont by an admiring audience,
Tracy varied the programme by a resort to the ar
gumenlvm ad hondnan. For this alight muscular
exercise Thomas was required by the justice to
contribute $8 and costs to the general fund.
A Noble but Terrible Record.—Ob the
21st day of April, 186’, Co. A, (Rumsey Biflos) 12th
Illinois infantry, entered tho three months 1 ser
vice, under President Lincoln’s call for 75,000 men,
125 strong. At the expiration of their term of
service, C 5 of the men re-enlisted for three
years, or during the war, under Lieut. Van Horn,
and have shared the glories and hardships of that
famous regiment to this day. They now have
just IS men who can answer the roll call, most of
the remainder being quietly resting in green pos
tures and beside still waters, until the Great Cap
tain shall muster them Into his white lobed army.
These fifteen heroes have all re-cnlistcd, and they
call upon the young men who love their country
and are willing to be counted among its defenders,
to come and Join them, until there shall be room
for no more in their ranks. The entire 12th regi
ment returns with SU men out of the 650 who
filled its ranks, when it went to face the enemy.
You Tickle Mb and I’ll Tickle You.—Tho
Jeff. Davis organ, on its report of the proceedings
of a late meeting of the Chicago Medical Society,
says:
Dr. Wlckcreham said that the Society was under
many obligations to the Times. It has given full
and reasonably accurate reports, which, If contin
ued, will place the So ciety upon its proper fooling
in the estimation of the public.
This is a plain case of reciprocal puffery. Dr.
Wlckcreham Is one of the High Priests of the Or
der of Copperheads, and has therefore been the
recipient of fulsome beslavering at the hands of
the Confederate organ, and it is eminently In ac
cordance with the fitness of things, that he
public acknowledgment. We have-no idea that
the profession will choose to adopi that disloyal
sheet as the medium through which to 44 place the
Society on Us proper footing In the estimation ot
the public.” We haven’t the slightest objection,
Dr. W. “It’s only a matter of taste,” as the wo
man said when she kissed the cow.
Deserters Arrested.—Saturday evening,
upon the arrival of the Milwaukee train, two mm
named William Walton and Gnatav Jefferdt were
arrested on the charge of having deserted from a
squad of troops sent from Baltimore to join Gen,
Pope’s command. These men had been In tb*
rebel service, and were captured by the Fedorals—
one at Berlin a few days after the battle of Gettys
burg, and the other with a schooner that attempt
ed to run the blockade at Charleston. After being
eaptmed they took the oath of allegiance
to the United States, and Joined the army. On
Thursday last in company with a large squad, they
left Baltimore to join Pope, and proceeded as far
as Milwaukee, where they saw on opportunity to
discharge themselves from service without the aid
of red tape. They took the cars for Chicago, and
on arrival were arrested, through Information re
ceived by telegraph. They will be returned to
Milwaukee on Monday or Tuesday, If their iden
tity is established.
The Emancipation Proclamation and
The Sanitart Cokviebiok.—ln a rerr cordial let
ter from Eev. Henry W. Bellows, President of the
United States Sanitary Commission, addressed to
Tbos. B. Bryan, Esq., a proposition is made hy
Br. B. that the Jac simile of the Emancipation
Proclamation he leaned, for Eastern circulation,
under the joint anepicea of the Soldiers' Home
and the U. 8. Sanitary Commission, the latter In
stitution to participate in the profits derived from
the ealea of copies in the East. Mr. Bryan has ac
cepted the proposition, and an issne of the fac-
Hmile will be made accordingly, hearing upon each
copy the Joint signature of Thos. B. Bryan and
Henry W. Bellows.
We are glad to leant that despite the trickery
.and deception of those engaged in introdneing
nth ere, the genuine fae-HmUe is destined to obtain
universal acceptance throughout the loyal States,
and scores who have been deceived into purchas
ing the catchpenny Issue, consign the bogus to the
flames, and the genuine to frames.
Belief fob Soldiers’ Families.—The
regular weekly meeting of the Ladies' Belief So
ciety was held on Saturday afternoon. In the rooms
-of the War Committee in Garrett Block. The at
tendance, owing to unfavorable weather was
light, bnt the proceedings were full of interest.
In the absence of Mrs. Doge, the President, Mrs.
Hosmer was called to preside over their delibera
tions. The minutes of the preceding meeting
were read and approved.
The reports of the ladies bring next in order.
Mrs Fuller reported an additional collection of $2,
making $84.65 altogether. Mrs. Fuller had assist
ed fourteen families. Mrs. Edgcrton reported $2,
Mrs. Loomis reported stl from the German Evan
gellcal Church, and 50c. from a poor German wo
man. Mrs, Banney reported $8 collected. Mrs.
Ccnrad reported $8 in money, and articles of
-clothing. The collection from North Fresby
talan Church was announced to be $45.10; that
from the German Evangelical Church $11; Union
Park Church, SIL9O; Berean Baptist, $8.70. Dun
lop, Sewell, & Spaulding famished twenty-four
books for canvassers.
Mrs. Beynolds reported ss*o paid in by Potter
Palmer, Esq., for the relief of soldiers’
families. The following woe unanimously
adopted:
Fetolted, That the ladies’ Association for the
relief of soldiers’ families, tender their heartfelt
thanks to Potter Palmer, Esq., for his munificent
donation of SSOO to-thelr treasury, and also for his
previous gift of SIOO to tbe same purpose. Such
entitles him to the gratitude of
The generous offer from Arlington, Kelly, Leon
& Donnikeria Minstrels to give a special afternoon
entertainment next Saturday for the benefit of sol
diers’ families, was accepted with thantr^.
On motion the meeting then adjourned.
Gough’s Lectcbes. —The great sale of re
served seats for Gough’s three lectures, has ren
dered it neccseazy for the Committee to announce
that no tickets win behold at the door on the eve
nings of the lectures, until twenty minntes befbre
eight o’clock. Previous to that time none except
holders of reserved seats and complimentary tickets
will be admitted. Clergymen and holders of com
plimentary tickets wUI be seated on the stage, and
are requested to come early.
There win be about three hundred desirable seats
provided for persons procuring tickets on the eve
nings of the lectures who do not holdseeored seats.
Some very desirable reserved seats for the Sd and
Sd evenings remain unsold at Chittenden’s, 106
Lake Street. In consequence of the shameless lar
ceny and sale of a portion of the ordinary red “ ad
mission tickets” to the Young Men’s Association
lectures, an entirely new and different “admission
ticket” has been provided, and the old red tickets
will not be recognized by the Committee at the
door or any other place, and holders of them are
warned against expecting to be admitted on
Wages ass Pavzegbw—The mechanic and labor
er, whose large family or expensive habits exhaust
ell his earnings, is perhaps poorer as a conse
quence of the increased cost of living, but those
whose thrifty habits bare led them to save a per
centage of their earnings is able to lay by a larger
amount of money now than before the~commence*
ment of the war. Visitors to the savings banks now
make larger weekly deposits and-their account
booka show a greater balance in their favor.
There is not a better way of investing, such small
be spared from the weekly
receipt s, than i tta a -well conducted Sav-'
lags Bank, a truth which the working classes of
Europe and the East have long elncc discovered.
The workers of Chicago are beginning to recog
nize this, as Is attested by the large Increase in the
deposits made In the State Baring Institution on
Washington afreet. This bank especially com
mends itself to the public confidence by the terms
«of Its charter,whlch renders the stockholders indi
vidually liable for every dollar deposited, and la
Conducted by tho same men who control the HU
nois Savings Institution. It is well known that at
thetimeofthestnmptail excitement these gentle
men carried on the bank at par, paying dollar for
dollar In gold or par funds as deposited,—wilhont
discount. Kobctteiiproof is needed, that deposi
tors with either of those Institutions avoid those
risks of lose contingent on dealings with lew re
sponsible or honorable men; it Is well to know In

A PEACE PETITION.
The Peace Sneaks at Work—A lack
Spittles Prayer,
The following Copperiicad petition la bolngclao
destinely arcnlcted among the “peace sneaks “of
this city and elsewhere for signatures. It was sent
hereftom Ohio. ;Vollandlgham is said to have
pci ned It. Several hundred copies were printed
at the scccsh office to bo distributed for signatures.
A letter from Somonauk stales,* “ that a Copper
hcsdjrom Chicago named Brant is engaged in
peddling It in that neighborhood. His ostensible
business Is selling whisky, bat he seems to be
more active in drummlngfornameato his peace pe
tition than for customers for Uls ‘rot gat.'*' He
don’t seem to succeed very well In either branch
of hie business in that section of the country.
To the SonoraUs the Senate and House of Rep
reseniatlres rf the Congress Of the United States
Of America:
Ycvr petitioners, citizens - Coonty. Illin
ois, would most respectfully represent to your
Honorable body, that a most cruel and deatractlve
civil war has been canted on, with a vindictive
bitterness never before recorded in the annals of
civilization',-between the United States and sever
al States of the Union, until rain has encompassed
everything pertaining to onr material happiness.
Onr wealth has been changed to poverty, until
we owe more than we are worth, ana spend more
than wc make. The nation Is essentially bank
rupt; our civilization has been reduced to barhar
citm; onr Christianity has yielded its altars to
Atheism, which has erected Us temple and Inan
puarsted such sacrifices as will only be satiated
by sprinkling onr door-sills with the blood of onr
children, and fattening the Sepulcher with the
choicest manhood of the nation. Onr liberties
have departed, one after another, until the rights
of persons, and the self-government of the people
have sunk together. Human language, In poverty,
consplalnoth of want of strength to dearly express
the multifarious wrongs wo suffer, the evils we
endnre, and the gloomy future In reserve for us.
To avoid these evils, to zedress these wrongs,
and preserve the liberties ot the people inviolable
an early peace is the hope of the country.
We, your petitioners, therefore most respectfully
pray your honorable bodies to take each imme
diate action, as will secure the appointment of
Commissioners to make preliminary arrangements
for the cessation of hostilities, and the settlement
of all troubles,upon the basis of the Constitution
of the United states, securing to the States and
the people their rights respectively.
In the name of the five hundred thousand brave
soldiers, their widows and orphans, whose early
graves attest at once our sufferings and onr
wrongs, and In the greater name of the God of
Love. Mercy and Justice, we pray that yon Imme
diately consider our petition and answer onr
prayer.
lie place in which to circulate the above peti
tion is !c Sccecsla. There It might be signed with
propriety and conslstencr, and sent to Jeff. Davis
and the rebel Congress. It describes the condition
of things as they exist In the revolted States quite
accurately. It is for tho rebels to sue for peace,
cot for our Government to invoke Confederate for
giveccss. The Confederates can have peace npon
the easy and simple terms of laying down their
- arms and submitting to the laws—never on any
other. And the persons who are circulating the
nbovcpetillon, and those who sign it, in the loyal
States, arc traitors at heart, and hostile to the per
petuity of the Union. The “brave soldiers,” who
are re-enlisting by tens of thousands, and the
“widows and orphans” of those who have fallen
in defence of their conntry,do not desire the hypo
critical, disloyal “prayers” or “petitions” of tho
peace sneaks, bnt spurn them.
2*The only part of tho “nation that is essentially
bankrupt” la the port that Is ruled over by Jeff
Davis. It is there that “civilization has been re
duced to barbarism” and “Christianity has yielded
its altars to atheism.” It Is there that liberty has
been strangled, and rnln is encompassing every
thing pertaining to maternal happiness.” And it
is in that section of ont country that the Copper
head peace commissioners should travel with their
petition to obtain signatures. In the loyal States
their memorial is an insult to every man to whom
it is offered.
PROGRESS OF P.ECRUSTiHG.
Bcmber of Hen Enlisted from the
County—lhe City Appropria
tion Hearly Exhausted.
Since our last report, recruiting has been uncom
monly active. An inspection of the record shows
that Capt. Pomeroy has mustered an aggregate of
eight hundred and twenty-one persons, as fellows:

Our reporter was unable to gain access to tho
records In the Provost Marshal’s office, because
they were in use in making ont the monthly re
turns. The former report indicated an aggregate
of seven hundred and eighty. Assuming that
the musters here are in tho proportion of
one to three, to those at the United States regis
tering office, and is believed that this is about the
ratio, the total of enlistments will reach over six
teen hundred and forty-five. Now add to this tho
two hundred and fifty mustered In at St Charles,
and we have the very respectable aggregate of
nineteen htmdred recruits. Of course the above
estimate is in eomesensevery hypothetical,butit Is

The following notice issued br the City War
Fund Committee, and signed by John Comiskj,
lie Chairman,will show that the money appropri
ated for the payment of bounties is nearly expend
ed, and that those who wish for the sake
of securing the city bounty must do so speedily. .
NOTICE.
The City Conscription War Fond Committee
hereby give notice that tbey have issued certifi
cates for soldiers’ bounty to the amount of slo*,-
475, that the amount or money appropriated for
payment of bounties is $120,000, and that tho
Committee will only issue two hundred more cer
tificates which will exhaust the appropriation.
There ie little room to expect that a further
cum will be appropriated by the city, as the care
of the soldiers families will probably consume all
tbe money that con be raised hereafter. This fact
is of ESPECIAL SIGNIFICANCE TO COLORED-MEN
who must come forward at once if they-would
secure a bounty. The federal bounty of S3OO
to white* recruits will be continued
till March tho Ist, as will also
the county bounty, bnt the colored residents of our.
city to whom the city bounty has been nearly all
that Lae been offered, will not receive that unless
tbey enlist speedily. We trust our colored friends
win bear this in mind, and to-daj enlist freely and
take the city bounty. There should be at least five
hundred enlistments within the next three days.
It this is done we can safely promise that wc shall
“avo d the draft.”
CONDITION OF THE STREETS.
A Crossing Brigade Wanted—Wash-
iag the Municipal Face,'
The sorrow® and tribulations of spring an here,
eren though the season itaelf hare yet to come.
Hie universe of mud lo oar streets, caused by the
thaw, was yesterday angmented by the rain, and
onr streets are, to speak mildly, in a acmi-tmpas
sable condition. Tbo state of the crossings are
deplorable, and “ankle deep,” but faintly de
scribes the plight of he or she who attempts to
wade through the slash which there collects In
more ample quantities than in other places.
Gaiter boots an worthless, and orerahoesare of
no use at aU. The boot sinks deep Into
the mire .and a tight fit is indispensable to the con-'
serration of the pedal covering, which, if bot a Ut
ile too large for the foot, finds Us most attraet.ve
affinity In the bog, and leaves its wearer to travel
around as best he may, devoid of vndertiandlng.
The pedestrian la uncomfortably reminded of tho
traveller who on the verge of an Iriah'bog asked
if then was a firm bottom, and on being answered
in the affirmative, plunged forward and downward
to the neck,receiving this consolatory explanation,
“Hold yez there was afirmm bottom, butye are
not halfway to it jit.”
Wc suggest to the city authorities that Some
measures should be at once taken to clear the prin
cipal crossings, at least, even though It should In
volve the importation of a street-crossing brigade
from the land of Cockayne, which they aay breeds
them in such profusion that a few hundred knights
of the broom could be spared for exportation at a
very moderate price. Or bow would it work to
set the masculine denizens of the Bridewell to
render each a service to the city f The officer In
charge of the crossing could watchhts movements,'
and would have ample -time for so doing in the
diminution of his labors in lifting ladles through
the' mud- A crossing brigade would Just
now form a very effective addition to the Lake
street squad. The city authorities will, we sup*
pose move in the matter, but it will not be till
the rain baa ceased and. two or three days of sun
and wind have. rendered the crossings passable
without their aid. We do not, however, need to
resort to himuin labor as a permanent engine for
thu purpose. The single broom or scraper Is but
a slow stool, espedaly when wielded by one who
mentally bears the French galley brand-“TP,”
froroux/orca, “forced labor.” But there are ma
chines at work in other places, which do the work
beautifully, picking up .the . mud cleanly and
carrying It _ aw%y rapidly. We have no
such machines now, cannot afford to wait for
their construction, but should have them, as a
counter part of the afreet epHnWinp tnaiAinw and
thedty fathers could frOtdob*ucr than pass an
order at their next session for u* purchase of half
a dozen for future use. Meanwhile tb« DrMan * dirt
should bo removed, and that tmmeuuteij vy]
&ot our Mayor do something to
natter and thus sire us a sample of that “horse
sense V for the possession of which ho Is so famous;
It has been suggested by onr citizens
that the secret connected with this matter of filthy
and neglected street crossings may yet be brought
ic)lght,by the supposition -being substantiated
thatouT r riy fathers arc. Ins’ underhand way, con
nected with some of onr energetic and lucrative
boot-polishingcorcerns. -*
Yet with all Its memories, we ' accept the deluge
of yesterday as a blessing. It Is an admlrable’san
itnry agent, and will wash away the accumulations
offilthwhichbavebeen made In the snow, and
lay rotting In onr gutters on the first thaw* Strange
that people will be so careless of their health nod
.’that of the community as to throw filth around to
poison the air 1 Yet so It Is, and nature herself
aids ns when we will not help ourselves. The pre
sent rain may bring ns wet feet, dirty bools, and,
perchance, a few colds, bnt Its effect on the health
of the people will be marked. The corporation,
like the indidldoal, will be all the better for a good
wash.'
A CHAPTER OH HOSES.
Tlielr Various Kinds, Qualities, Dis
tinctions, Difference* and
Peculiarities. . . <■ ~
BT ONE WHO KNO3E.
The nose is. a characteristic feature of th,o hu
man face, and is generally regarded os a faithful
Index of character. Every one Is, to a certain ex
tent, whether he admits It or cot,'a bcHererln the'
science which assumes to indicate, from tho ap
pearance of the human features, tho character and
disposition of another, because every person
forms an opinion ol bis fellow, and this opinion Is
based, not npon a knowledge of hls character, bnt
upon some certain prominent* facial expression,
which strongly impresses him at the moment. ..
The first attempt to elevate phyriogonomy to tho
rank of a science,'was mado by Lav&ter, and sub
sequently by Spurzheim and Crosa. .
No feature of the human face Is more closely
regarded in an estimate of character, than that:
whose title forms the caption to this paragraph.
The Grecian Nose, models of which aro preserved
in ancient statuary, is considered the highest type
of nasal beauty. As there are few really beautiful
faces, - so there are few Grecian noses. The Bo
man nose is another type, less often encountered, -
bat indicative of firmness and good sense. Then
there aro png noses,, and noses in tho air, noses
provocative, anduoscs supercilious, earnest noses,
and noses that have poshing ways, itching noses,
and noses retrousse, noses of was and led noses,
noses out of joint, and noses thrust into affairs
where they do not belong. There aro editorial
noses, and legal noses, ministerial coses and logi
cal noses, rcportorial noses and family noses. .
Png noses are cot handsome. They equal Ho
garth’s ideal, in his analysis of beauty—curved
lines—bnt no one pretends to uamlrethem. They
indicate good sense, however, and will do to tie
tc.—Noses in the air tell that their possessors are
on the lookout for the main chance. They indi
cate that they ore of an inquiring torn of mind,
and ecent a bargain, as the horse does the battle
from afar. Noses provocative induce snitching
desire in irritable fingers to lay hold of them.
Noses supercilious arc the pscnllar property o
those who smell acutely. Fine women are often
the fortunate owners of this feature. These ore
they who expect to monopolize the best seats in
tho street cars, end look snpcrcllllonsly and turn
up their enpcrcilllocs nosos if any. unusual jam
causes the exquisite symmetry of their belongings
to be Impinged. They accept tho seat of weary
men without a distant recognition of the courtesy.
They smell a mechanic a block removed, patron
ize the opera, and when they can afford It, ride In
a carriage. There aro men with sapcrcilUons
coses, but contact with tho world nsoally takes
the quality they represent out of them.
Earnest coses belong to earnest men and wo
men, who despise the frivolities of life.and make
existence a serious matter. They are Intelligent
and active, and In whatever they engage, business
politics cr religion, they work with their whole
soul. The great workers are earnest men, and re
joice In earnest noses. “Turn np”-rafroi«« noses,
me cot infrequent. Most women aud some men
are time distinguished. If slleht. It Is no unpleas
ant feature, bnt if .excessive, amounts to a deform
ity. A tuin-uocoEo in a woman Indicates good
nature, as a thin straight nose indicates the vixen.
“ oecs of wax” is a proverbial expression, de
scriptive of persons who are mutable and accom
modating. They arc all things to all men. These
are the people or whom it is said, *• they hold their
coses to ike grindstone.” To lead by the nose Is
to lead blindly. Politicians thus sometimes lead
their constituents, ministers their congregations,
editors their readers, lawyers tholr clients, and
women their husbands. “ Noses out of joint” Is
cot to be taken literally. The advent of a now
baby puls the nose of the first one “ out of joint.”
When a man leaves bis wile at home, and takes
her friend to the opera, or when she has spent the
day in mending her husband’s coat, and finds a
love-letter from some other woman in the pocket
atnlght,wemaybcsnrcher nose is particularly
“out of joint,” A politician is laid upon tho shelf,
or defeated at the polls, and hls nose is terribly
“ out of joint.” He who is called on to adminis
ter to an organ thus diseased may well be pardoned
if he exclaims after Hamlet: “ Uls nose is ont of
joint; Oh] cursed spite, that ever 1 was bora to
set It right.” - • •
Those who thrust their noses into matters which
do cot concern them, constitute a very great por
tion of what Is called society. No sex, doss or
’ profession is exempt from the imputation of med
dlesomeness and Impertinence. For this class,
people have supremo contempt. These are they
who peep from behind muslin curtains, to see if
Mrs.Blank is not receiving visits in the absence
of her husband: that wonder where Dr. Jones
will get a new wife; that say all manner of pleas
ant things because Mrs. Jones has a now
bonnet; that reckon 11 Captain Arimcklcr’s
debts were paid, he would not dress
so finely; that pity poor Mrs. A. because ol the
neglect of her Cnsnand; that make and unmake
marriages; that drive neighbors to distraction and
their husband and wives to destruction. They

Editorial, ministerial, rcportorial, and legal

A Fortune Teller in Trouble—Matri
monial Bboeeraot.—Swindling is now one of
the prevailing epidemics of the times, and like the
small pox, accms to be spreading all over the
country. Every day or so, some new confidence
operation comes to light and brings grief to the
perpetrators. Some, not having ingenuity enough
to adopt a plan, fall back on the worn out plan of
lotteries, gift clobs, and sometimes make use of
the names of charitable (nstitationa to aid them in
their nefarious work, while others being good
judges of human nature, and well knowing that
the fools are not all dead, gall the people by means
of loro secrets, astrology, ft id gentuomne.
One of these latter was nicely “ pulled ” yester
day under the following circumstances. A short
time .ago an advertisement was published by a
young man named Bonn, a resident of this city, in
Frank ledie'e, the Milwaukee Senlirul, a Boston
paper and the Springfield FepvUlean , of which the
style was:
Personal.—Any lady or gentleman sending me
twenty-five cents and a three cent postage stamp,
will receive the carta de vieitaot the future hus
band or wife, and the year In which the happy
event will lake place. Address,

Yesterday morning Capt. John Nelson received
information by letter (no doabt from one of the
victims to soothsaying) that this swindle was be
ing carried on extensively hero. He then went to
the Poet Office, and after remaining on the watch for
two hours, succeeded in detecting the swindler in
thcactortokingtholetteraontofthc box. After
potting them in his pocket ho went one of the
i’est Office, Capt Nclfon still on his track, after
proceeding down Dearborn street, where be met a
young man named thaw, a clerk in a prominent
home on Dearborn street, with whom he held a
few minutes conversation, he turned up Lake
street, and dropped into a photographic gallery.
.Here Capt. Nelson, who had cot lost sight of him,
stepped up and informed the young gentleman
that nls presence was required. He then asked
to know the meaning of the arrest, ol .which the
CapJaln informed - him; when bo immedi
dintclv owned cp and stated that Shaw
was. his partner. The Captain then sent
Detective Stroebel after Shaw, and immediately
proceeded to Mr. Dunn’s room, where he found
some five or six hundred letters, in addition
to the fifty-four found upon his person. A war
rant was then sworn out against Dunn and Shaw,
and they were token In the afternoon before Jus
tice Miller. They were examined, and were ad
mitted to ball in the sum of SBOO eoch.
The photographs were rejected ones which they
bought at five cents apiece .from the vanous-wt
and then mailed them off to the aiisas
pecting victims of misplaced confidence. Letters
were received from romantic young ladies of the
•w of *wMt rittoott, and other* of a more oncer-'
tain age, whose beauty consisted of false
teeth, a' wig and a pot of rouge- Cor
pulent old gentlemen, who sport gold beaded canes,
and young men who sport elegant mnstachlos and
dress, themselves up, perfectly regardless of ex
pense, enclosed the •‘quarter” and the red stamp.
'All were anxious to enter into the mysteries of
•connubial biles, and requested the “professor” to
be particnlarjto send a good looking husband or
wlte, and at the earliest possible moment. Ho
sent in return the rejected “plctcra” of numbers of
our prominent citizens—Judges, Aldermen, mer
chants and others, suiting their ages to the wish
and taste of the various applicants. Some of the
letters are exceedingly rich, and all so impatient
for the “talisman” that they requested Ur. Hum
boldt to send the photograph and time for the hap
py event by the first mail.
■ The Police Court.—Nothing novel char
acterized the proceedings at the Police Court on
Saturday. The docket was rather a heavy one, and
contained the names ot some SO or S3 Individ
uals. most of whom, as.usual, were disorderly or
incnrablegnmkards. Outside the bar there were
the came few loitering spectators, and about the
same number of ill-used women applying for war
rants to protect them from the brutality of hus
bands. or else to settle neighborly rows, in which
generally the warrant might be applied with equal
force against the prosecutor or the complainant.
One or two eases, however; that appeared were of
slightly greater Importance.
Ccat Steeling.—John Doyle, a stable hand
at the Girard was charged with the larce
ny of an overcoat and other clothing from a fellow
workman, Martin McNaltv. Tbo things were
hanging up in the office adjoining the stable, and
were stolen daring the absence of the owner.
They were found by officer Chnrcbwood In a sa
loon under the Maseesoit House, where they had
been deposited by Boyle. Prisoner, who pleaded
guilty, was bound over In the sum of to ap
pear at the next Recorder's Court.
Mutt try another Mop.-John L. Harrison and
Samuel Harrison, two respectably dressed vounff
men, were charged with stealing « parse contain^
Jfe 0I t £? m A* Ca *dwell, a soldier of the
ahCavahr. The prisoners profees to be brothers!
but from their appearance cannot claim a common
paternity except the somewhat ancient <S?of
Adam and Eve, met the prosecutor lu a saloon
on \\ ells street, between Jackson and Harrison:
and were treated by him. They were also In the
room with some women of abandoned character
who also drank at the complainant’s expense. Af
ter come little time, when the women bad left and
the three men were together, the .prisoners pro
percd a walk, and whilst leaving the tavern Card
well felt that he had lost his parse. He said noth
ing, bnt, accompanlng them into the street, gave
them into the custody of the first officer he met
Pxosccator was positive that he had the money
alter be entered the tavern. Considerable cash
was found npon tho prisoners, bnt not answering
to that lost by Cardwell. • They hare no leritimate
calling and tne police affirm that they are thieves.
Brisonrrs said they only came to Chicago two days
ago, hut they have been noticed here for the last
three or four days. Bis Honor said they bad not
sufficient evidence to conzict on the offence
named, bnt if the prisoners did not leave the city
by the next train, no would fine them (SO each as
vagrants.

The Opeixa.—Graa’s great operatic troupe of

and large trunks, and last but not least, musical
directors, managers, and tbo impressarlo. Hr.
Gran, to commence the attack upon our musical
stronghold, and wo expect to announce to-morrow
the hanging out of the white Hag. The whole
troupe consists of sixty-five, divided as follows:
Fire prlma donnas—Vera Lorlnl, Cordlcr, Morcu

Donizetti's grand tragic opera of Lucrczla Bor*
gla opens the season with the following cast:
Lucrezla ..Vera Lorlnl.
Orslnl *orenal.
Gensiro Stefihn!.
The Duke Morelli.
Oubeuti Barih.
and the other par 1.3 Sig. Ximencs, Maucinland
I’crnf. Wherever In the Wctt this opera has
been produced, it has met with magnificat and*
cess, and tho eamo jurors which greeted it In
Buffalo, Albany and Cleveland, we believe ’awaits
It here. In the latter city, the troupe wore so suc
cessful that by the request of the opera goers an
extra rendering was given at an advanced rate,
which Is something unusual In operatic history at
the close of a season.
Tueedr.ynlght, Donizetti Is again on tho-boards
in the shape of charming little Luclu dl Dimmer*
moor, with Caalri and Stcffaui in theirgroat parts.
Tbc finale will bring out this lost artist In his
crowning character. The cast has not yet been
announced, with -the exception of the three lead
ing parts. Tickets for tho first three nights are
still for sale at Higgins’music store.
Continental Old Folks,— Tho “Continental
Old Folks’ ” concert company, of New England an
tecedents, who Lave been giving concerts in the
West with gratifying success for some time past,
wiLslcgat Bryan Hall on Friday and Saturday
evenings, of this week (ithaud 6th.) We need on
ly to say that Mrs. Emma J. Nichols, whosoj bird
like notes were admired by all Chicago, when she
was hero about one year since with the Father
Kemp’s company, isa member of the Continentals.
. Mrs Kloss’ Concert.— Mrs. Kloss gave her fifth
classical concert last evening to a vo:y selcat and
appreciative audience. The programme was one
of the beat of tho season and was admirably ren
dered. Beethoven’s qnatnor forplano and strings
hoshccn beard here more that onco before, and
was all the better appreciated that it was not al
together new. Tbc beautiful andante, singularly
iuggeslive of Mozart’s "Baitibalii" was exquis
itely given, as well as tbe spirited Rlndo, which
forms tbe finale. Mrs. Kloss gave the curious
glguc or Jig of Bacb; the beautiful first song with
out words, of Mendelssohn, tbc Impromptu in A
flat of Cbopin and that Sonata of Beethoven known
as “adieu, the absence and the return.” It la un
necessary to say that they were well rendered, for
in snch music Mrs. Kloss baa few equals and no
superior. In response to an enthusiastic encore
she gave a spirited Concerto Etude. Mr. Lewis per
loimed in a highly creditable manner tho Violin
Concerto of Mendelssohn,and was warmly applaud
ed. The stringed quartette of Haydn containing
tbe Austrian Hymn “ Ood save the Emperor ” was
given with fine effect by Messrs. Fcsael, Lewis,
Nubcrger and Bolatka. Take It all in all, tbe
concert was one of the best of tbe season. The
last concert will be given on Saturday next.
Academy op Music.—' Tho Academy is crowded
every night. Tbe entertainment offered is sore to
draw.
Railroad Ball.—On Thursday next the em
ployees of the Chicago, Alton and St. Louis Rail
road give their annual ball at the Trcmont House.
These railroad balls have established themselves
as a regular institution. Those who recollect tho
same event last year seed hot be told that this
will be one of the most popular of the season. St.
Louis will be largely represented. Mayor Filleyi
and many prominent citizens have signified their
intention to be present ;.and nearly all the towns
on the line will bo alike represented. Chicago, of
coarse, will not prove laggard on tho Joyful occa
sion. There will be a sharp contest between the
Railroad Ball and tho Opera, on that evening,
with tho changes in favor of both.
Masquerade.—We announced yesterday that
tho German Turngemelnde would give a grand
masquerade at' their new hall on North Clark
street, on the oth proximo. We learn that prizes
are to -offered for the moat attractive coattunes,
and there is, as a consequence, great activity
among tho costumers. No doubt It will prove a
very brilliant affair. The masquerade is national
among the Germans, and tbc old home pride will
not let them neglect to employ any resources
which may be within their reach to Insure a per
fect success.
Another Masquerade.—Several young gentle
men, who have the entree to our good society, are
engaged In getting np s masquerade party, to take
place at Bryan Ball on tho 10th proximo. The
managers have .the power to get up a moat suc
cessful masquerade, and they mean to exerd&e It
to tile extent of their means. .The tickets can be
had of ore of the managers at the City Railway
Office. Ncnc hut those whose respectability is
beyond question will be allowed to purchase tick
ets.
McVicker's Compart.—During the occupancy
of McVicker's Theater by Gnu's Open’Troupe,
bis company will go to Milwaukee and occupy the
Academy of 51nslc for two weeks. We commend
them to the courtesy and the patronage of the Mil
wnnkceans. We believe Mr, Bandmann, the pop
ular Anglo-German tragedian, will make one o
tho company.
The Associated Congress.—Every large
community poetesses a certain amount of debating
talent, which will create for itself channels of er
.erdse.and improvement. Bnch m channel lathe
Associated Congress, which, after several years
suspension has been again revived, and placed
upon a, footing which promises to make it perma
nent-and nsclhl.
Its meeting at No. 9 Larmon’s Bloch, lass eve
ning, was lively and instinctive, and a prophecy to
those interested, of a long and prosperous enreer
for the ro-organlzcd institution.
. After an animated debate, Cspt.-Whittle, of the
2d Board of Trade Regiment, who is now engaged
In recruiting and happened to be present at the
meeting, was invited to address the Congress, and
responded in a brief speech teplcte with eloquence
and patriotism.
Yotmg men and others who desire to pass s
pleasant evening and improve themselves in the
art of public speaking, can have no better, oppor
tunity than that afforded them by the
Congress.
Juvenile Depravity—Daring Bobbery
at Ractke.—On Saturday night, about 9 o'clock,
-threeboys hailing from Radne, named respec
tively Thomas Bowen, Joseph Carlon and David
aged from 20 to 15 years, were arrested at
the Circus, on thei strength of a telegraphic mes
sage received from Racine. It appears that the
three boys went Into a book’ store in that city,
kept by Steers & Freese, where, finding the clerk
engaged, they stole $77 and Immediately made off
with'it. The gareone then went to a'clothing
store where each bought himself a new “rig,*’
from top to toe. Including coats, pants, vests,' &c.
From there they went to the railroad depot and
took the cars for this dty, arriving here about
noon. They then, after dinner, went around to
view the sights, and such was their desire to spend
the money, that they invested in all kinds of traps
—playing cards, trade, yellow-covered novels,
peanuts, apples, hair-pins and jack-knives. The
Sheriff of Racine arrived last night, and the boys
will accompany him to Racine for examination
this even mg.
Kew Iron and Haepware]House.—C. C.
Balthls, who has been in the Iron and hardware
business for the peat twenty-four years, and J. SL
Calthis, late of Knox county, have formed a co
parlncrehlp, under the name of BalthU A Bro.,
and hare opened a house at £O7 Lake street. Their
stock embraces crery class of Iron and shelf goods,
including every description of Iron; boggy and
wagon stock; plow and faring steel; springs and
axles, Ac., Ac. The iron-whlch this boose is to
sell will come from the well known works of
Graff. Bennett A Co., and warranted equal to any
other offered In this market. Our acquaintance
with tho gentlemen constituting this Arm, enables
ns to say that we are sore their boslneaa will be
conducted upon the strictest principles of mer
cantile honwyand w» can cordially commend their
bonce to the confidence and patronage of aU who
seed articles In their Use. We congratulate the
mer&ants of Chicago npon the accession to their
ranks of the two gcnellmes of whom we epoafc.
.The Law’s Deiats.— Most of our readers
are familiar with the celebrated trial of “ Jarndyco
vs.. Jamdyce which lasted for years, and Is so
well reported in Charles Dickens's “.Bleak House. 1
Yesterday afternoon a case of larceny was tried
bclorc Justice CulhbcrUon, which, on account o?
•legal technicalities, Informalities and other lfi«,
-seemed to bo equally as tiresome and annoying.
■ Acn Crown, allam Manning, was charged on
Ftldaybefore Justice Cutbbcrtsoa with having com- 1:
milted the larceny of several articles of wearing
apparel from lira. Fish, residing at No. 855 State
street, and the case was postponed for a farther
teeing to yesterday afternoon at S o'clock.
Shortly after that hour, the prosecutor and two
.witnesses arrived,' and on consultation it was
thought best to again postpone tbe case for
a short time until other witnesses could
he had. When these were obtained, it was found
that they knew nothing of the case, and were con-
Bcqneni’y allowed to depart in peace. The prose*
entor and the witnesses, who were examined the
Cay previous, were again subjected to a close di
rect and cross-examination, both ot which foiled
to clacidnle'auy new facts. One of the witnesses
taking umbrage at the manner In which she was
trosf-cssmined, pitched into the lawyer and final
ly wooed np by giving him an epithet moro cx
prctslve than genlcfclt after which ho subsided.—
The counsel fer the defence indulged In alongpcror
allcr, full ot buncombe, to which the Court was
compelled to listen with the patience of Job.' The
Court finally committed the defendant to appear
before the Recorder’s Court‘in default of S3CO
bail. ,
• Ebidop&'s Battest Absoci-VTIOK. —There
was a gathcringof the friends of the men belong
log to Bridges's Eattciyvat the Trcmont Boose on
Saturday evening, to take into consideration the
propriety of forming a Battery Association, simi
lar to Its general outline, to the Mercantile Battery

cage, HHiolp, and that the officers of this associa
tion shall consist of a President, Vice President,
Secretary, Treasurer and a Board of managers,
with a committee for each of the above
objects.
These reeolntions were referred to a committee
of three consisting of Win. W. Boynton, J. F.
Temple and D. n. Howard, who were Instructed
to report them or eimilar ones' at an adjourned
meeting.
Cr.pt. Bridpoa informed the gentlemffn present
that tbc Bos chill Cemetery Company had donated
seven of the best, lots unsold, for the burial of
these of their comrades who had died or who
might die in the scrvlco of their country.
Alter informal discussion tbe meeting adjourned
to meet on Friday evening next for the purpose of
perfecting the organization.
To Soldiers and Postmasters.—Editors
of newspapers throughout the United States will
doubtless confer a favor on tbo soldiers in tbe field,
as v. ell as their friends at homo, by giving public
ity to the following:
An act to amend the law prescribing the articles
to be admitted Into tbe mails ol tho United
States.
U (naeltd lyOte Senate and House of Rcpre
tti'ttiiira ty uoi United States in Congress astern-
Utd, That articles of clothing, being manufactured
of wool, cotton, or linen, and comprised In a pack
age not exceeding two pounds In weight, address
ed to any non-commissioned officer or private serv
ing In the armies of the United Slates, maybe
transmitted in tbc nulls of tbe United States at
the rate of eight cents, to bo in all cases prepaid,
lor every four ounces, or any fraction thereof, sub
ject to such regulations as tho Postmaster General
may prescribe.
Approved, January 22, UC4.
- Post Orrion Department, Jan. 25, 1 : 61.
The foregoing la w is published for the informa
tion of tbc public, and especially for the guidance
of Postmasters, and it is thought to be so full and
plain that ho one can mistake its meaning. Post
masters will, however, boar In mind that packages
ol clothing entitled to pass in tbe tnalls-/our
ounces for eight cents— must be manufactured from
treof, cotton or linen , and not exceeding two pounds
!n weight, and must be addressed to a non-com
missioned officer or private serving in tho armies
of tbe United States. Consequently a package
addressed to a commissioned officer, or composed
of other materials than as above specified, such as
boots, shoes, Ac., If sent by mall, must bo prepaid
by stamps at letter rates, viz: three cents lor every
half ounce or fraction thereof. M. Blais,
Postmaster General.

The Chicago Bible Socieiy was organized In 1637,
since which it has circulated about 150,0 0 volumes
end remitted to the American Bible Society, in
payment for these and as donations, over S4U,OTO.
Its efferent Secretary, slr. T.B. Carter, has served
the society since 1840, and to him Is doe much of
the credit oi what has been done.
The La Salle County Bible Society occupies more
territory than any other in tho State, ana has the
largest number of branches.
The receipts of the Bureau County Bible Society
daring the year previous to the adoption of tho
present plan of operating, were about SIOO. Last
year they were nearly being more than
ihcfc of any other society in the Slatetln any year,)
except those of Chicago.
•- The number of families reported as visited and
found destitute, as above, is probably below tho
actual number, owing to the difficulty of getting
full reports. But we observe that tbo proportion
of destitute families as reported, is small, showing
that tbo auxiliary societies arc keeping their folds
well supplied. In addition to what has been paid
for books, agencies, freights, etc., for the supply
of their own needs, the auxiliary societies have
sent between three and four thousand dollars to
the American Bibio Society to aid In spreading the
gospel in other places.

Not the man.—We have received a note
from W. L. St. John, Superintendent of the Rock
Island Railroad, In which he denies the Identity of
the swindler arrested on Friday night last for at*
tempting to dispose of tickets, professedly in aid
of the Soldiers* Home, wlthFrancis Chandler, once
an employe in the Freight Office of that road. We
derived our information from a source supposed to
be eminently reliable, and bad reason to think that
U was true, although in the narrative it was made
suppositions. Wcg!vcs[r.Chacdierthcbeucfltof

Mr. St, John, In the employ of the Indiana Central
Railroad as Ticket Agent.
The Case op Hr. Lee,—We have received
letters Iroom the friends of Dr. Lee—who was ar
rested on a suspicion of aiding in the escape of
rebel prisoners at Camp Douglas—stating that Dr.
Lee is hmocent of the charge; that he was driven
from Memphis as a Union man, and that all for his
to his country. Wcbavo no disposition
to accuse any man unjustly; hut the exact strength
of the proof of bis guilt is bes. known to the mil

he may be able to prove it to their entire satisfac
tion and none will; be more ready; to publish the

for, owing (6 the late thaw, the route has become

however, that oil repairs trill bo finished by Wed

Editors Chicago Tribune:
Sin—Will you be so kind as to correct a remark
made by myself In an article published in your
journal on too 28ih'inat., , thus for exonerating the
Superintendent or officer in charge of the Marine
Hospital. His remarks to me were thus: that he
would not receive a man in the Marino Hospital
unices he had a ticket from the Collector,if ho saw
him lying in the gutter. '
Since that date ue lias received fifteen U. S. ni
val recruits, and, as far I know, they ara ex
ceedingly well cared for. and have been famished
an outfit of clothing from the Sanitary fomralsslou.
1 would respectfully suy there has been no blame
laid to the officers of the hospital. In fact they bad
no right to receive them according to the Uws and
regulations of that institution without an order

Many thanks to the kind generosity of the offi

LOCAL MATTERS.
Asmt Subsistence.— By reference to our adver
tising columns, it will be seen that the Govern
ment, per Lieutenant Colonel Small, Commissary
of Subsistence, Is'prepared to contract for the sup
ply and delivery of molasses, rico and codec. Bids
may be banded in till noon to-day (Monday) at the
office. No. 54 Zilver street.
Tun Soldier's Friend.— There are times in the
life of every man when a confidential adviser, one
in whose judgment, discretion and fidelity, and
secrecy/.fall reliance may be placed. Is invaluable,
and is too often sought in vam. The same mao,
however fkillral he may be, however extensive
his knowledge, Is not available for every case of
difficulty that arista; and in fact it Is only those
who have paid special attention to one depart
ment of human woe that can bo expected to com
prehend a case In all Its bearings, and give advice
which will enable the afflicted one to meet each
phase triumphantly. And as with the learned
professions in general, so' Is it particularly with
the minor divisions of practice in cither and each
of those professions. In tho medical field of la
bor, for instance. It has long ago been foncdnecos
sary to separate the general physician from the
general snrecou, each of these branches of study
requiring the labor of years for Us comprehension.
And tbo improved state of knowledge at a more
recent day has demonstrated the advisability of
making still finer divisions, the practitioner
taking one class of diseases as the object of his
study and subject of treatment;*
Among those who have anywhere adopted at
their speciality the study and treatment of that
large and formidable class of diseases known as
“ sexual,” Dr. Charles Bigelow stands In tte very
first rank, few ecTlamjg, and none surpassing min
mi diagnostic, prescriptive, and manipulative skill.
Commencing the study of medicine at a very early
age, and possessed of an intuitive ability to trace
out analogies and sequence, he soon became no
ted for the wonderful rapid progress which he
made Jn the acquirement of knowledge of tho sci
ences which lie at tho root of general medical
Sractice. Becoming convinced then that in the
epariment in which he now labors there was a
wider field of usefulness, and a much greater need
of practitioners than any other, he embraced It,
ana for years thereafter labored diligently to at
tain lo a superior and complete acquaintance with
sexual diseases. Ho began where the majority
leave off and upon that primary knowl
edge be built up a superstructure of diag
noses and prognoses so extensive, so
accurate, so all-comprebensivc, as to leave useov
ered no single portion of that vast net-work of
human tuflerlug which, springing from one com
moo radix, grows and increases Tike the Banyan
tree, till a whole series of distinct trunks arises
from the soil and seem like Independent growth.- 1 .
Very few ol those self-styled specialists take this
course, the great majority of them have not re
ceived the simplest rudiments of a medical educa
tion. Dr. Bigelow has not devoted a whit less of
labor to this class than is given by tbo general
physician to the whole range of human disease. It
is apparent from this that it is to tho vital interest
of those who have been unfortunate enough to
contract tho venereal taint, by Imprudence orbe
rt ditarlly, should placo themselves under
his care. as they may rest assured
that all that man can do tcUl bo done for
them. Nor is this ail. Those who would visit
him may do It so In strict confidence that their
feelings will be respected, their delicacy unassailed
and their good name untarnished. By the new,
expeditious and unobtrusive method of treatment
the patient need not fear circumstantial exposure,
and with him tbo honor of the gentleman is In
volved In keeping verbal silence, and preventing
tbo chance contact of patients who may visit him
at the eamo time. Ho has separate consultation
rooms in which a dozen patients may be treated at
once without being aware of the presence of each
other. Those who wish tho best treatment and
tbe most honorable dealing should without fall
consult Dr. Bigelow at his office. No. 17J South
Clark street, on the corner of Monroe, whore he
may be found at all hours of the day and evenin'*.

From the Mobile (Ala.) Advertiser of May 2d, 1S31:
,I Dr. James.—We learn from the New Orleans
Crtictnt that Dr. James (not the Cannabis Inciica
man, whose “sand of life'’ have recently ran out,
beta veritable and skillful practitioner,) who has
been conducting one of the largest Hospitals In
the United States since 1850, at & Custom House
street, New Orleans, La., leaves during the pres
eent month for the North. What he is leaving
for we cannot say—only conjecture—probably on
account of our present troubles with the North.—
Be that as it may, we can say, and with confidence,
that he has the greatest reputation in the country
in a speciality of any physician that ever practiced
in it. Furthennorr,we have had occasion to know
that Dr. James is an honorable man. and he will
inform those requiring his aid whether or no he
can give them a cure. The fact, also, that Dr.
James* residence has been a permanent one, is
good evidence that he Is capable of accomplishing
what ho promises in the treatment of the speciali
ty in disease to which he confines bis practice.
is the announcement in the New
Orleans Crescent to which we have referred:
“Departure op Dr. James—This gentleman
is a medical benefactor of merit so great that to a
large portion of the community his departure is
ever a regretful event. He leaves the city on Sat
urday for the North. Wo can cheerfully recom
mend him wherever he goes, as a practitioner, in
fafs peculiar branch of medicine, woo has no living
superior, and few; If any, rivals.
Dr. James Is now permanently located at 8(1 Ran
dolph street, Chicago, Illinois, specialist in the
treatment of old chronic mercurial, scrofulas,
blood and skin diseases—cures them without mer
cury, iodide poiaui, arsenic or any poison, but a
centralizer, a positive cure for these terrible and
much to be dreaded poisons.
Organic Weakness—such as seminal weakness,
nocturnal and dinrnal emissions, brought on by
excess, abuse of the system, or entallea heredita
rily, causing loss of memory, nervousness, de
pression, ringing in the cars, dimness,
Ac., with all Its deplorable train
of symptoms treated and radically enred
by an inlallibie method—saving both time and ex
pense? and the only sure enreror this treatment—
thousands certify to the enres effected by Dr.
James. Testimony from the medical faculty, pro
fessors of Jledrcal Colleges and Hospitals, have
fiom time to time appeared in the papers. Dr.
James has been practicing in the speciality of dis
eases of a private nature in New Orleans fifteen
years- thirteen years conducting the largest hos
filial in the United States in this speciality, and
Or the last three years In Chicago. During that
time Dr. James has treated more diseases of n se
vere and complicated tvpe of a private nature sue
fully than any of the physicians tn the United
States. Dr. James is responsible and reliable,
andean give the best of city rclcrencce as to his
skill and success. Remember Dr. James's office
and parlors are 86 Randolph street, between State
and Dearborn streets, op stair?. Olfico open from
9 A. 51., until 8 P. M. Sundays from Uto 12 51.
