Saturday, October 18,1856. [ From our Extra of Tuesday. ] ARRIVAL OF THE GOLDEN AGE! TWO WEEKS LATER NEWS! MAINE ELECTION NEWS! LATER FROM KANSAS! LATER EUROPEAN NEWS! IMPORTANT POLITICAL NEWS! Memoranda. —San Francisco, October 14th. The Pacific Mail Steam Ship Golden Age, J. T. Watkins, commander, left Panama, on the first of October, with 672 passengers and the U. S. Mails. The frigate Independence, and sloop-of war St. Marys are still at Panama. The sloop of-war Saratoga, is at Aspinwall, officers and crew all well. The authorities at Washington have re fused to recognise the Nicaraguan Minis ter. Despatches from Kansas contain im portant items. The State Prisoners have been released on bail, and they (the peo ple,) at Lawrence celebrated the event by immense rejoicings. General Gearey had arrived at Lawrence, and issued a procla mation, in which he ordered all bands of armed men to disperse. Nothing will be wanting to sustain tranquility. Hon. C. P. Villiers has been appointed to succeed Mr. Crampton at Washington. We now learn there is no doubt of the fact of that gentleman’s appointment to this country. Mr. Villiers is a Member of j Parliament, was President of the Crimean | Commissioners, is a Member of the Board of Trade. He has accepted the appoint- j ment and will leave England without de lay. The Tammany General Committee, on Tuesday night, endorsed the nomination | of J. Wood to the Mayoralty of New York, by a vote of 56 to 26. W. T. Coleman, President of the San Francisco Vigilance Committee, was ar rested at the instigation of J. 11. Malony, late of San Francisco, who complains that while performing his duty guarding the State Arms, he was seized and expelled from the State by the Committee to his great pecuniary and personal damage.— Mr. Coleman, who is now on a tempo rary visit in the country, was taken before the Supreme Court, and held to answer in the sum of SIO,OOO. The anniversary of the adoption of the Federal Constitution was signalized by im portant political movements in various parts of the country. The Old Line Whigs opened their Na tional Convention at Baltimore, for nomi nating Presidential candidates, by the se lection of Judge Bates, of Missouri, as Chairman; appointed the usual Commit tees, and discussed old recollections, past political efforts and visionary hopes of po litical triumphs for the future, and ad journed. Neav Jersey. —The Republican Con vention for the nomination of Presidential Electors, met at Trenton. The lion. E. Marsh, who was President of the Know Nothing National Convention that nomi nated Fillmore and Donelson, presided.— The proceedings were very spirited. At Syracuse, there was held the Repub lican and North American Convention, — a collection of radical Abolitionists. The Republican Convention was attend ed by delegates from every county in the State. After the adoption of resolutions absorbing a portion of the Americans with out terms or conditions, adjourned till Monday morning. The N. Americans bolted, and organized a separate Conven tion. They intend holding a separate Convention at Rochester on the 23d. — The radical Abolitionists did nothing. The Whig Convention at Baltimore en dorsed Fillmore and Donelson appointed an Executive Committee, and adjourned. There was a ratification meeting held. It was a brilliant affair. The letter of declination of Mr. John son of the North Americans, for the Vice Presidency, was surreptitiously obtained and published without authority. The Committee requested Mr. Johnson to reconsider his action, and Mr. Johnson had written in reply, his letter declining the nomination. Funds. —California State Bonds, 70@ 73 cents, in New York, on the 19th ult. Wells, Fargo & Co., advertise in N. York, that they would pay the interest due after the 19 th. The Steam Ship Asia, which left Liv erpool on the 6th ult., arrived on the 18th with ten days later news. The intelligence is of an important choracter. Much financial disturbance was caused in Great Britain by the sudden failure of the Roj'ul British Bank, which was insti tuted some years since, and enjoyed many advantages and privileges from the English Board of Trade. he Loudon journals have some articles hst Walker’s proceedings in Nicara , and in condemnation of the policy of U. S. Government, in officially recog - jiis Minister. A good deal of anx felt in Europe in regard to the the harvests. Aadelphia, Sept 18th.—The Dem ,Celebrated the anniversary of the Nation to-day. The excitement pro unparallfeled in the history of po lebrations in this city. Johnson of Ga., made an eloquent n which he reviewed the history bnstituticm, &c. . of Ohio, has dropped .e and Bonelson, and gone for Fre nmhoritie* of Havana refused to e New Orleans mails landed, but subsequently despatched them to Key West. Maine Election. —Our dispatch does not state the entire vote. The majorities, losses and gains, which it gives, taken in consideration with the result of 1805. The following couclusion may be arrived at: The total Black Republican vote, 63,- 488. The Democratic, 43,965. Know Nothing 6,423. Showing that the Dem ocrats have lost 10 cent, of their vote, and the Know Nothings 40 cent., — While the Republicans gained 311 ct. THE ZEBRA. BY DOW, JR. Ladies and gentlemen! There are but four animals of the horse kind—the horse, himself, which is the most useful, proud and courageous; the ass, which is the most stupid, meek, patient and humble; the hobby, which is fit only for children and politicians to ride; and the zebra, which is the most beautiful, but at the same time, the skittishest animal that ever grazed in the pastures of nature. Nothing can ex ceed the delicate and polite regularity with which this interesting creature is marked, or the glossy smoothness of its skin; but, on the other leg, nothing can be more timid or more untameable. In shape, he prefers to resemble the mule, rather than the horse or ass. By wisely choosing the middle aspect, he escapes being the cause of jealousy or vainness on the part of either; for, no doubt, either would feel proud to have it said that the zebra was made after his own image; the mule, therefore, alone has the honor of being the rough, original model. He is a vulgar fraction less in size than the mule, and about a hair and a half larger than the ass. Like the ass, his head is large and thick, his back straight as a quaker’s, his legs placed scientifically exactly where they should be, and his slender, sickly tail tufted at the nadir, as if feebly exerting itself to resemble a paint-brush. Like the horse, its skin is as smooth as a hypocrite’s tongue, and as close as a miser’s chest; and his hind quarters are round, like the four quarters that make a dollar. But the zebra, ladies and gentlemen, prides himself most upon his striped coat and trousers, which throw all state-prison dresses into an impenetrable shade. It is astonishing to amateurs with what streaked regularity and elegance the lamp-black is laid upon the snow-white canvas ! These stripes are so disposed over the whole body, and with such exactness and sym metry, that one is pushed into the conclu sion that Nature, in thus outwardly deco rating this animal, worked by the day, and not by the job. At any rate, it is evident that she has taken extraordinary pains in the adornment. But not so in regard to any other creature. Take, for instance, that which is generally considered a beau tifully marked beast, the leopard. Why, he looks as if the fair artiste had hastily daubed him with a coat of yellow ochre, and then kept throwing a paint-brush at him, dipped in chimney-soot, just for the fun of seeing how many spots she could make without one interfering with any of the others. But look again at the zebra; there’s carefulness —there’s elaborateness —there’s patience; there's the highest order of artistical talent exhibited for you! Painted on him are just one hundred and thirty-four stripes, including those on his ears and tail, but not counting those laid on by the whip of his master. These stripes, like so many black ribbons, are narrow, but not to meanness; parallel, and exactly separated from each other, not running impudently into or confusedly into one another, like the shades on other parti-colored animals. Every stripe is perfectly distinct, and enjoys an indepen dence not to be disturbed by any 1 oppo sition line;’ and continues to run round the body or limb without any diminution, or the least sign of fatigue. In this manner are the head, the body, the thighs, the legs, the ears, and even the ramuscule, beautifully streaked; so that, at a fair distance, one would be apt to suppose that the animal was ‘ dressed to kill’ by art, and not thus admirably em belished by the pencil of Nature. 0! he is a magnificent spectacle to behold in a menagerie! Amid the chattering and squealing of the monkeys, when stirred up by a short pole—the earthquake growlings of the monstrous white bear—the terrible screamings of the panthers—the awful roaring of the lions—the startling bull gine bellowings of the elephant, and the brazen, brain-distracting blasts of the music-makerns—there, alone in his cage, stands his serene majesty, the zebra, care fully selecting the choicest spears of hay from a mouldy wisp, as perfectly unmind ful of the deafening din as a clam horse in the midst of a political celebration ! Such is the beauty of this creature, ladies and gentlemen, that it seems fitted up expressly by nature to satisfy the pride and pleasure of man, and formed to be taken into his service; but, I assure you, that he disdains all servitude. There is as much ot the white as the nigger about him; and no kindness can coax, nor force can cudgel, his native spirit of indepen dence out of him. He may be partially subdued, but never wholly tamed; his wildness will stick out much faster than you can push it in. He sometimes, how ever, performs in the ring with the monkey upon his back; but, notwithstanding all the equestrian skill that Jack is master of he no unfrequently finds himself spilled in the sawdust, and evinces a decided un willingness to incur the risk of remount ing. The zebra ‘ knoweth his master’s will,’ but the worst of it is, you can’t make him do it—as it should be done; and, there fore, according to Scripture, he has been ‘beaten with many stripes’—which ac counts for those singular marks for which he is so eminently distinguished. The zebra, ladies and gentlemen, has now the honor of being a native of the Cape of Good Hope; but as he is also found in several provinces of Barbary, we may rationally conclude that he will never be anything more nor less than a barba rian to the longest day of his life. He is very easily fed—always helps himself, when hungry, and when there is anything eatable in his way. His natural food is hay or grass; but will, on a pinch, partake of bread, meat, crackers and cheese; and even chew tobacco! Who would suppose that a creature, outwardly so beautiful, could make himself so foul within ? Man has some excuse for putting it in his mouth—he doesn’t know any better. The noise made by the zebra is neither like that of a horse nor an ass, but more re sembling the bark of a big mastiff, labor ing under some pulmonary affection of the lungs. What a pity it is that an animal so pleasing to the eyes, and so promising of practical utility in strength, speed, and form, cannot be thoroughly domesticated! But, alas! that can never be. I assert it, declare it, and stick to it, that no natu rally-wild animal of the plain or forest ever will, or ever can be of any great service to man in his ordinary avocations —so help me, Bob O’Lincoln ! No, not even that overgrown mass of brute intelli gence called the elephant—to which I presume, you have been introduced before to-day. A Tight Tie. —The truth of the fol lowing is vouched for by an eye witness of the scene. A few days ago a worthy Hi bernian couple, living away up in the gulches of Klamath county, sent to a neighboring Justice to unite them in the holy bonds of matrimony. The Magis trate came, and the pair having been duly ushered into the presence of a big crowd, convened to witness the ceremony, the former proceeded to adjust the noose.— Unfortunately he had not proceeded far before the words of the ordinary ritual escaped him. On the instant, however, a lucky thought brought him, as well as his anxious victims out all right. Gazing sol emnly at the parties, he commanded them to hold up their right hands. He then slowly and deliberately pronounced the following oath : “ You do now, both in the presence of Almighty God and these assembled witnesses, solemnly swear to discharge the duties of husband and wife to the best of your knowledge and abilities, so help you God. —Shasta Republican. Charter Oak Items.— On the night of the fall of the brave old oak at Hart ford, Mr. Stuart, the proprietox*, was en gaged till midnight in writing his last chapter of its history. A copy-righted engraving of the tree as it appeared after its fall, is being made; and a sound limb is being made into an elbow to a new ship, to be called the “Charter Oak.” A swarm of bees came out of a hole in the fallen trunk, on Saturday morning, and lodged upon another tree, but soon returned to their old quarters, from which they were securely and safely hived. They will be tenderly cared for from the associations connected with them. Their presence in the tree was not known till its fall. During the heat of the battle at Ger mantown, while the bullets flew as hail stones, one Bachclow of Monmouth, was leveling his musket at the enemy, when his lock was carried away by a ball. Un dismayed, he caught up the gun of a com x-ade just killed by his side, and taking aim, a bullet entered the barrel and twist ed it around like a cork-screw. Still un daunted, our hei'o immediately kneeled down, unscrewed the old lock from the twisted musket, screwed it on to the mus ket from which the lock had been torn, and blazed away at the enemy. BWomen are called the ‘ softer sex/ because they are so easily humbugged.— Out of one hundred girls, ninety-five would prefer ostentation to happiness—a dandy husband to a mechanic.— Exchange. Well: and ninety-nine men out of a hun dred would prefer a rich or pretty wife to a sensible or accomplished one—so where’s the difference ? Remember the old couplet. Though many vices taint the female breast, They’re not so bad as man—though bad’s the best! SSf Correction does much, but encour agement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower. If we did but know how little some enjoy the great things they possesss, there would not be much envy in the world. B@“A vain man can never be altogether rude. Desirous as he is of pleasing, he fashions his manners after those of others. A good moral character is the first essential in man. It is, therefore, highly important to endeavor not only to be learned but to be virtuous. Forget injuries and remember benefits. If you grant a favor forget it; if you re ceive one, remember. Consolation indiscreetly pressed upon us, when we are suffering under affliction, only serves to increase our pain, and to render our grief more poignant. The best heater to resist winter is a benevo lent heart. Capitalists who have tried coal stoves and failed, will please notice. A load of wood given to a poor man, it warms you almost as much as it does him. Try it on. A bachelor recently left his boarding house, in which were a number of old maids, on ac count of the “ miserable fair” set before him at the table. If you would preserve your virtue, keep out of debt. Remember, the tighter your boots the more frequently you stumble. The Old Lady’s Last.— Mrs. Partington la ments she will never be able to suppress her self correctly. “ Whenever I open my mouth” she says, “ I am sure to put my foot into it.” A book has been published in England, by Dr. Stowell, in which he undertakes to prove that “ the forbidden fruit,” was the tobacco plant That monstrous tyrant, Henry VIII was so ar dent a wooer, that he married first, and axed them afterwards. STANISLAUS MILLS. HAVING leased the above property, we are prepared to PAY CASH for any amount of Wheat npon delivery. Fanners will bear in mind that these Mills are situated at the foot of the mountains, in the mining region, and the prices we pay for Grain will always remunerate them for freight ing their produce to us. We would call particular attention to the immense FIRE-PROOF BRICK STORK-HOUSE, connected with these Mills, capable of holding TWO THOUSAND TONS of Wheat, where Farmers wishing to remove their grain past all bad roads in winter, can store Free of Charge. To those Farmers who wish to dispose of their produce after manufacturing, we would state that we will furnish the storage FREE for their Flour, Bran, &c., in fire-proof houses in SONORA, COLUMBIA , JAMESTOWN, CHINESE CAMP, MURPHY'S or SAN ANDREA S, at either point they may prefer, where they can safely leave their Goods, and await bad roads and high prices for Flour, and where, at any time they choose, they can make sales, for CASH, and not be compelled to submit to a Pedlar's Fate, of selling at any prices that may be offered to the wagoner. Farmers selling grain to us can, if they de sire, always have loads of freight furnished them to the mountains, at the going rates. Customers can have their produce delivered to any point they may designate, from Mokel umne Hill to Kern River, as we have a large train of Pack Mules for this purpose. Thus Farmers can store their grain in their store house, proceed to the mountains and con tract to deliver their Flour at any point in the Southern Mines, and obtain the highest prices. W T e wash smutty wheat by machinery, at a trifling expense, and manufacture it into the best of Flour. SEED WHEA T thoroughly cleansed free of charge; barley, oats and chess taken out. Wheat and barley mixed, will be taken and separated perfectly. The highest prices in cash will always be paid for Wheat. Lumber will be given in exchange for grain at Stockton prices. No wheat containing small stones or gravel, or clods of earth, will be received for grinding into Flour under any circumstances. No lot of wheat of any description will be received for flouring, unless it can be manu factured into superfine Flour. Customers bringing grain to the Mills will be kept over night without charge. No smoking or camp fires will be allowed about the premises. No business of any nature will be attended to on Sunday. Under no pretext whatever, will children be allowed about the Mills, unless accompanied by their parents. THE REPUTATION of the Stanislaus Mills is established beyond doubt, as being the best in the country; the proof of which may be found in the fact that it sells in the mining towns one dollar per barrel higher than any other brand ever offered in the market. CHARGES.—Grinding Wheat, £ cent lb; sacking Flour, 50 cents bbl.; grinding Bar ley, \ cent lb. Below will be found the opinion of well known merchants and bakers concerning the Stanislaus Mills Flour: We have always made it a point In our busi ness to secure for our customers the best of Flour, to be found in the State, and have used Horners Golden Gate, Stockton City Mills, San Joaquin Pilot, Santa Clara, Alviso, and numer ous other brands, and for the past five months have used exclusively the Stanislaus Mills Flour, and without hesitation pronounce it far superior to any w r e have ever used, and fully equal, to give it age, to the celebrated brands of Rich mond, liaxall and Gallego. McKENTY& CHURCH, KNAPP & CO. Columbia, Feb. 1, 1856. Messrs. Locke & Co.— Gentlemen: —Having heard the Stanislaus Mills Flour so highly spo ken of, I was induced to try it in my Bakery, having obtained a parcel from Messrs. Hestres & Co., of this place, I gave it a trial, and to my great surprise I found it equal in every respect, except age, to the liaxall and Gallego, and if you will let it remain in the store four months after grinding, I will use it altogether if you will furnish me at the same price I can obtain Haxall and Gallego. A. GALL, Massachusetts Bakery. Stockton, Feb. 12, 185 G. Messrs. Locke & Co.— Gentlemen :—I have used the Stanislaus Mills Flour in my Bakery, and find it superior to any California Flour' I have ever used, and I am of opinion that if stored so as to become of proper age, it will prove fully equal the Haxall and Gallego brands. J. M. BUFFINGTON. Messrs. Locke k Co.— Gentlemen: — We have sold large quantities of the Stanislaus Mills brand of Flour and take pleasure in stat ing that it is equal to any manufactured in the State. Some of our customers, who are bakers, we supply with it altogether. TOOMY k O’KEEFE, San Francisco Stores. Columbia, Feb. 1, 1856. This is to certify that 1 have used in my trade the Stanislaus Mills Flour, and have no hesitancy in saying it is equal to any manufac tured in the State. J. A. JACKSON. Columbia, Feb. 4, 1856. This is to certify that we have sold the Stan islaus Mills Flour to Miners, Restaurants and Families, severally, and, in every instance, have their united testimony to its superior quality over all other brands of sack Flour. H. N. BROWN k CO. Columbia, Feb. 1, 1856. Springfield, January 1, 1856. Messrs. Locke k Co.— Gentlemen :—The Stanislaus Mills brand of Flour is far superior to any we have ever used, and we recommend all who want a beautiful white flour, to buy it. WM. COCHRAN & CO. Sonora, Feb. 1, 1856. We have sold over 1,000 barrels of the Stan islaus Mills Flour and found it the best sack flour in the State. STREET BROS. Sonora, Feb. 1. 1856. We have used the Stanislaus Mills Flour and found it equal to any in the State. E. RICHARDS. Shaw’s Flat, Feb. 1, 1856. I have been selling Flour for the past six years and I pronounce the Stanislaus Mills Flour the best in the State. WM. J. MARKLEY. Knight’s Ferry, July 17, 1856. sep2s E. UESTRES, Proprietor.

CZAPKAY’S Grand Medical and Surgical Institute. Armory Hall Building, corner of Montgomery and Sacramento streets, San Francisco. Established for the permanent cure of all private and chrome diseases and the suppression of quackery. DR. L. J CZAPKAY, late in the Hungarian Revolutionary War, Chief Phvsician to the 20th Regiment of Honveds, Chief Surgeon to the Military Hospital at Pesth, Hungary, and |® cturer on diseases of the urinary organs and diseases of women and children, has open ed his institute for the cure of all forms of pri vate diseases, such as syphilis, gonorrhoea, emiS3 i° n s, and all the consequences of self abuse. In the first stages of syphilitic or gonorrhoeal diseases, he guarantees a cure iu a few days, without inconvenience to the patient or hindrance to his business. When a patient, by neglect or improper treatment, has developed the symptoms of secondary-syphilis such as painful swelling of the groins, or ulcers in the throat or nose, which, if not checked, destroy the soft parts and cause the bones to mortify, separate and come away leaving the sufferer hideous to behold; or when splotches or pimples break out upon the skin, or when he has painful swellings upon the bones, or when his constitution is injured so as to predispose to consumption or constitutional disease, the Doctor guarantees a cure or asks no compensation. In rheumatism, chronic or acute, in dysentery or diarrhoea, he has safe and effectual reme dies. For the treatment of the consequences of self-abuse, such as nocturnal emissions, nervousness, timidity, headache, pains iu the back and limbs, with general weakness, loss of appetite, loss of memory, injury to the sight, restlessness, confusion of ideas, dislike to so ciety, and a feeling of weariness of life, with the nervous system so excitable that slight noises shock or startle the patient, making his existence miserable. For the above maladies the Doctor will guarantee a cure or ask no compensation. He can be consulted free of charge, and invites all to call, as it will cost them nothing, and may be much to their ad vantage. Thankfulness is the incentive to Gratitude. BELOW we publish the certificates of two of the sufferers from the pangs of disease, who having recovered their former health, and impelled by gratitude, make known their ca ses and the remedial agent; and their state ments are authentidated by a Notary Public. The demands of society imperiously command their publicity, and we commend their perusal to the attention of all afflicted: CERTIFICATE. The undersigned, desirous of acquainting those who may be unfortunate enough to be similarly afflicted where a permanent relief of their suf ferings may be obtained, feels it his duty to thus publicly express his sincere gratitude to Dr. L. J. Czapkay for the permanent recovery of his health. Borne down by the distressing symptoms incident to the vicious practices of uncontrollable passion in youth, depressed in body and mind, unable to perform even the most trifling duty imposed upon the daily avo cations of life, I sought the advice of many phy sicians, who first regarded my disease of trifling importance, but, alas! after a few weeks, and in several instances months, of their treatment, I found, to my unutterable horror, that instead of relief the symptoms became more alarming in their torture, and being finally told by one that the disease, being principally confined to the brain, medicines would be of little conse quence, I despaired of ever regaining my health, strength and energy; and as a last resort, and with but a faint hope, called upon Dr. L. J. Czapkay, who, after examining my case, pre scribed some medicine which almost instantly relieved me of the dull pain and dizziness in my head. Encouraged by this result, I resolved to place myself immediately under his care, and, by a strict obedience to his directions and advice, my head became clear, my ideas col lected, the constant pain in my back and groins, the weakness of my limbs, the nervous reaction of my whole system on the slightest alarm or excitement, the misanthropy and evil forebod ings, the self-distrust and want of confidence in others, the incapability to study and want of resolution, the frightful, exciting, and at times pleasurable dreams at night, followed by invol untary discharges have all disappeared, and. in fact, in two months after having consulted the Doctor, I felt as if inspired by a new life— that life which, but a short time ago, 1 contem plated to end by my own hand. With a view to guard the unfortunate from falling into the snares of incompetent quacks, I deem it ray duty to offer this testimony to the merit and skill of Dr. Czapkay, and recommend him to all who may stand ,in need of medical advice, being assured by my own experience that, once under his care, a radical and perma nent cure will be effected. B. F. Fillmore. State of California, county of San Francisco —Subscribed and sworn before me, this 17th day of April, a. d.. 1856. (Signed,) [l. s.] John Middleton, Notary Public. A CARD.—I the undersigned having been under the treatment of Dr. L. J. Czapkay, although unsolicited, feel called upon to give publicity to the efficacy of his treatment hoping that by so doing I may be instrumental in pre venting others from the fearful suffering and misery which I experienced, and which so often result from the pernicious practices of pretend ers. My disease has been that of physical and mental debility, which follows in consequence of the indiscretion in youth. The agonies which I endured are, perhaps unnecessary for me to detail, they are known to those who have ex perienced them, suffice it to say, that having called the services of Dr. L. J. Czapkay in re quisition, all my expectations wliich I may have formed of him were more than realized. I would therefore recommend Dr. Czapkay to all who may find themselves afflicted with that dreadful malady, my object in so doing being sympathy for suffering humanity, and a heart felt desire of relieving them.

If there’s an hereafter, (And that there is, conscience, uninfluenced, And suffered to speak out tells every man,) Then it is an awful thing to die, More horrid yet to die at one’s own hand. Shall Nature, swerving from her earliest dictate, Self-preservation, fall by its own act? Forbid it Heaven t The indulgence in secret pratice is the most certain, though not always the most immedi ate and direct, avenue to'destruction. Physi cians of all ages have been most unanimously of opinion that the loss of one ounce of semi nal secretions, by unnatural aid or emissions, weakens the system more than the abstraction of forty ounces of blood. One of the first writers on medical jurisprudence states that three-fourths of the insane owe their malady to such abuse. How important, then, it is for every one, hav ing the least cause to suspect any trouble in that way, to attend to it immediately; even one single occurrence should be sufficient to cause doubt, and much more so if the person had ever indulged in the soul-killing habit. The treatment pursued by the justly celebrated Dr. J. C. Young, in cases of seminal weakness, impotency, sterility, nervous debility and pa ralysis, (the last is the most dangerous, and when it once occurs, incurable.) is not surpass ed by any Physical! in the country. It is the same as that followed by him for years, under the guidance of the world-renouned Ricord of Paris, and Acton of London. Dr. Young’s office is at the corner of Montgomery and California Streets, where he can be consulted on that and all other private diseases, with the utmost con fidence and secrecy. Dr. Young will warrant a perfect cure, or make no charge. N. B.—Letters inclosing $lO 00 will receive prompt attention. The doctor’s time being so much taken up that he cannot attend to letters unless paid for it. P. S.—Apartments privately arranged. IMPORTANT to Miners, Travelers, Ac. There ii, no malady of deeper importance, either in a medical or moral point of view, to which the human family is more liable, than that arising from impure connections. As a medical man, it is the duty of every physician to look at disease ns it affects health and life, and his sole object should be to miti gate, as far as lies in his power, the bodily suf fering. Human nature at best is but frail; all are liable to misfortune. Of all the ills that affect man, none are more terrible than those of a private nature. Dread ful as it is in the person who contracts it, — frightful as arc its ravages upon his constitu tion, ending frequently in destruction and a loathsome grave, it becomes of still greater im portance when it is transmitted to innocent off spring. Such being the case, how necessary it becomes that every one having the least reason to fear that they have contracted the disease, should attend to it at once, by consulting some physician, whose respectability and education enables him to warrant a safe, speedy and per manent cure. In accordance with this necessi ty. Dlt. YOUNG feels called upon to state that by long study ami extensive practice, he lms become perfect master of all those diseases which come under the denomination of venereal, and having paid more attention to that branch than any other physician in the United States, he feels himself better qualified to treat them. Syphilis in all its forms, such as Swelling of the Groins, Ulcers, Ulcers in the Throat, Sec ondary Syphilis, Cutaneous Eruptions, Ulcera tions, Tertiary Syphilis, Syphilis in Children, Mercurial Syphilitic Affections, Gonorrhoea, Gleet, Strictures, False Passages, inflammation of the Bladder and Prostrate Glands, Excoria tions, Tumors, Pustules, etc., are as familiar to him as the most common things of daily obser vation. The Doctor effects .a cure in recent cases in a few r days, and finds no difficulty in curing those of long duration, without submitting the pa tient to such treatment us will draw upon him the slightest suspicion, or oblige him to neglect his business, whether within doors or without- The diet need not be changed, except in cases of severe inflammation.

YOUNG addresses those who have injur ed themselves by private and improper indul gences in that secret and solitary habit which ruins the bod}' and mind, unfitting them for either business or society. The following are some of the sad and melancholy effects produc ed by early habits of youth, viz: weakness of the back and limbs, pain in the head, dimness of sight, loss of muscular power, palpitation of the heart, dyspepsia, nervousness, irritability, derangement of the digestive functions, general debility, symptoms of consumption, &c. Mentally—The fearful effects upon the mind are more to be dreaded. Loss of memory, con fusion of ideas, depression of spirits, evil fore bodings, aversion to society, self-distrust, love of solitude, timidity, &c., are most of the evils produced. All persons who arc afflicted with any of the above symptoms should not fail to call on Dr. Young, and be at once restored to perfect health. Let no false delicacy prevent you, but apply immediately, and save yourself from the dreadful and awful consequences of this terrible malady. WEAKNESS OF THE ORGANS immediately cured and full vigor returned. DR. J. C. YOUNG. o Volcano, July Ist, 185 G. Du. Young :—Feeling grateful to you for your kindness and skill in removing from my body the effects of a most loathsome disease, under which I had been laboring for the past five years, I deem it my duty—not only to you as a physician, but for the benefit of all persons who may be laboring under similar affliction* —thus publicly to express my gratitude. S had very little confidence left when I first call ed on you, having chosen several eminent phy sicians in this State, all to no purpose. Their advice and medicines done me no good what ever. I read your advertisements with feelings of mistrust, but they described ray feelings so faithfully, that I resolved at once to consult you, which I did, and only regret that I had not done so before, as it would have been a saving to me of hundreds of dollars. I. how ever, will not regret the past, but will look joy fully to the future, knowing that should I 'or any of my friends need medical assistance, I shall always find one in whom I can trust. I am now on my way to the States. I shall re turn in a few months with my family, when I hope I shall find you enjoying health and pros perity, which you so richly deserve, that your life and health may be spared for a long while, tor the benefit ot suffering humanity. With many obligations, I remain, very re spectfully, your obedient servant. L. R. REMERTON. To J ’ P' -- £>., corner of Mon/yomci , and California streets , San Francisco. o- BSL.
