TO INVALIDS
'yy'IIOSK SUFFERINGS HAVE
been protracted from hidden causes and mal
treatment, and who require prompt relief
to render existence desirable.
Dr. J. PERRAULT, GRADUATE OF
Gnccn’a College, begs to inform patients
and others seeking medical advice that he may
be consulted personally <»r by letter In all ca
ses of Nervous and Physical Debility,
and the various disorders arising from sedenta
ry habits, excess, accident or climate, from 0,
A. m. to 12, M., and from 2 to 8, P. M., at his
office, Armory Building, northeast corner Mont
gomery and Sacramento streets. Rooms Nos. 9,
10 and 11, first floor up stairs. Entrance on
either Montgomery or Sacramento streets.
NO APOLOGY SEEMS REQUISITE for offer
ing to the public an advertisement of this kind,
for It is universally acknowledged that the
treatment of these particular diseases consti
tutes a branch of medicine which has NEVER
been sufficiently cultivated, in consequence of
the fastidiousness of the profession, who have abandoned
these specialities to the care of unqualified practi
tioners. There exists here no power to repress the im
pudence and effrontery of men who are totally incompe
tent to perform the duties of their so-called medical practice,
thereby inflicting miseries to a degree unparalleled in any
other class of human disorders. The only way to remedy
this evil is to call the attention of the public to a W ELL IN
FORMED MEMBER of the medical profession, le
gally qualified, and who devotes his exclusive atten
tion to diseases arising from the undue excitement of the
generative organs, together with those incidental stages of
acute disorder which, when neglected, terminate in the
horribly-wasting form of constitutional disorganization.—
DOCTOR PERRAULT has paid the most ANX
IOUS AND UNTIRING ATTENTION, for the last EIGHT
YEARS, to a special branch of study, and his m<»do of
proctice, suggested and improved by experience, and ex
periments made through the medium of the microscope,
enables him to detect the presence of semen in the urine.
We wish to impress those who have failed of relief else
where, that they may derive benefit from examination of
the urine in cases of Seminal Emissions and Inipotency. as
well as in cases of Gravel, diseases of the Bladder and Kid
neys, and we can at once ascertain the cause of the pa
tient’s complaint, so as to prepare the proper remedies for
each particular disorder, and according to each case.
Patients suffering from Venerial Diseases in any stage.
Pains in the Bones, Rheumatism, or from the effects of
Mercurial Poisoning, who can visit us personally, will re
ceive. in addition to our usual treatment, MEDICATED
VAPOR BATHS, without further charges. This Bath has
nearly superseded all other treatment in Europe. Refer
ence will be given to several who have been cured by this
treatment, after having failed with others.
Persons of both sexes who have impaired their health
and destroyed the vigor of their minds by their own mis
conduct. and thus deprived themselves of the pleasures of
life, are informed that on consulting Dr. PERRAULT they
will find a friend and a Physician who has cured ninny in
every part of the State, who applied broken down in health,
but are now rejoicing in all that makes life desirable and
man happy. References can be given, when required, in
almost every part of the State, from parties who know of
cases cured by Du. PERRAULT, after in vain trying sever
al physicians.
His Diplomas are in his office, where all persons ran see
for themselves that they are under the care of a regularly
qualified practitioner. We have the latest and safest rem
edies, in such inode of cure as can l»e obtained at no other
office on this coast, in Syphillis, Gonorrhea, Gleet, Stric
tures. Gravel, Stone in the Bladder. Enlargement of the
Testacies, Ulcerated Throat, Bones and Nose. Cutaneous
Eruptions. Ulcers, Abscess and other diseases depending on
impurities ot the blood. Du. PERRAULT still retains the
only agency in California of
DE. BEIOT’S FEMALE MONTHLY PILLS.
Their immense sale has established their reputation as a
female remedy unapproachod and far in advance of every
other medicine for Suppression and Irregularities, and oth
er obstructions in females. On the receipt of Five Dollars
these Pills will be sent, by mail or express, to any port of
the world, secure from curiosity or damage.
Persons at a distance can be cured at home by address
ing a letter to Du. J. PERRAULT, corner Sacramento and
Montgomery streets. Rooms Nos. 9, 10 and 11, or Box 973,
Post Office. San Francisco, stating the case as minutely as
possible, general habits of living, occupation, etc., etc. All
cases taken under treatment warranted. No charge for
advice. No poisons or harsh medicines to injure the con
stitution : no making sick to make well. We are honest
in onr dealings, frank in our opinions, and our charges
will be far less than demanded by other physicians. We
invite investigation, claim nut to know everything nor to
cure everylxsly. but we do lay claim to reason and com
mon sense, and to core eight out of ten pronounced incu
rable. We particularly request those who have tried this
Doctor and that scientific Physician, boasted and advertis
ed, till worn out and discouraged, to call upon us. It will
cost nothing, as consultations are free. 41.1y.i5.

Colfax Speaks.—ld response to a public tes
timonial given bim at Washington on the 10th of
April, Schuyler Colfax said be was prouder than
ever of the great Union party since the Civil
Rights bill passed. He believed the law would
never be repealed, but would in future years be
the proudest recollection of those supporting it.
He further said ;—“ We arc sometiraesasked why
the work of reconstruction is delayed? I an
swer, it has not been delayed. The President,
during eight months before the assembling of
Congress, was engaged in this work, following
the policy which seemed to him most fitting.—
Congress has since been engaged in collecting
testimony, comparing opinions and maturing ac
tion to lay a sure foundation for union, peace
and prosperity. * You will ask what is my
policy of reconstruction. 1 answer, it is the
policy laid down by Andrew Johnson, with such
emphasis and earnestness, in speeches between
June, 1864, and May, 1865, that ‘ loyal men shall
govern the preserved republic.’ ”
Result or a Horseback Ride.—From one of
the amusing and entertaining Honolulu sketches
which “ Mark Twain ” is writing for the Union,
we make the following extract: —“ I have ridden
fifteen or twenty miles on horseback since 5, p.
M., and to tell the honest truth, I have a delica
cy about sitting down at all. lam one of the
poorest horsemen in the world, and I never mount
a horse without experiencing a sort of dread that
I may he setting out on thntlast mysterious jour
ney which all of us must take sooner or later,
and I never come back in safety from a horseback
trip without thinking of my latter end for two
or three days afterward. This same old regular
devotional sentiment began just as soon as I sat
down here five minutes ago.”
The Washington correspondent of the Hultclin
writes as follows in regard to the passage of the
Civil Rights bill;
If there is any truth in the grateful doctrine
that past generations can lake cognizance of what
is going on in their lifetime abode, with what de
light must the spirits of our revolutionary sires
have looked down upon the American Senate on
the memorable day when, sitting beneath the
snowy dome and bronze statue of Liberty, this
corrolary of the Declaration was finally approved.
We respectfully suggest to the editor of the
Gold Hill News that the above noble paragraph
sounds very much as though it should have been
written by Bcnj. P. Avery.
The New York Times is evidently getting tired
of advocating the claims of ex-traitors. Read
what it says Strongly as we have felt con
strained to censure the course of the Radicals in
Congress, we apprehend the mischief they have
actually done is less than that arising from the
counsel's and conduct of those who claim to be
the particular friends of the South. The lessons
inculcated by such journals as the News and
World are operating prejudicially upon the tem
per of the Southern people, who arc led to talk
of conditions which will not be granted, and to
indulge exhibitions gratifying to none but Thad.
Stevens and his friends.” __
Treason Made Odious. —A Fortress Monroe
telegram of April 18th says “ Clement C. Clay
was released under the President s order this
morning.”
“ Show me who has been engaged in thcee conapiracien,
who haa tired upon our ling, who haa given instructions to
take our forts, and custom houses, and arsenals, and dock
yards, and 1 will show you a traitor. Were I President of the
United States. I would do as Thomas Jeflerson did, in 1806,
with Aaron Burr. 1 would have them arrested, and. if con
victed within the meaning and scope of the Constitution, by
U,f KUrnal GW I would execute then s." — -Vndrxw Johnson, in
the V. S. Senate, March % 1861.
Results of Plain Dealing.— The Albany Eve
ning Journal says it is a noteworthy fact that in
all recent elections, Stale or local, the Republi
can parly has been strongest where the issues
were most plainly made, and that there is no mis
taking the popular verdict in favor of sustaining
the party in Congress.
Jeff Davis will be found in private confer
ence with the President, at the White House, in
less than twelve months I— Marysville Appeal.
“It is time the American people should be taught to un
derstand that treason is a crime-not in reven*e-n«t in an
ger-but that treason Is a crime, and should he esteemed as
such and punished as such. '-Asumiw Johnson, Prudent of
the Cniled Stoles, April »), 1865.
The Democratic party must lake a new shape
and a new name before it can expect to accom
plish any important political revolution. The
party record of the war has killed it as dead us
the Bourbons. The new wine of Johnson s pol
icy cannot be pul into the old Democratic bot

Spring - Tim*.
Blithe Spring, the sweet, the rosy-llpped.
The dewy-eyed and sunny-tressed.
Across the Northern rone has tripped—
Again the land is promise-blessed.
I scent her breath upon the gales,
I see her livery on the hills,
I traco her fi*otprints in the vales,
And hear her in a thousand rilla.
With red and yellow favors set
The signal maple bursts aflame,
And pearly daisies thickly fret
The breezy meadow's emerald main.
The herald bluebird greets the morn,
The mountains doff their caps of snow.
The Glory flaunts its purple horn.
And pinky peach buds swell and blow.
0, blissful Spring! I greet, alas!
Thy presence with a wishful eye,
And all unnoted thou dost pass
The whilom lover silent by.
With balmy warmth and wooful kiss
The earth to youth thou dost restore;
But budding Joy and blossom bliss
Are pone from me for evermore.
What Congress Will Do. — ln a lecture at
Philadelphia, March 15tb, Wm. D. Kelley, mem
ber of Congress, said : — 11 But 1 must pause.
The danger of the country is not from military
power. The great soldier who captured tort
Donelson and Island No. 10, and enabled Andrew
Johnson, the hunted refugee, to return to his
home, commands the army for life. No St.
Arnaud can order a pardoned traitor to his posi
tion. And having Conquered the rebellion on
his own line, he will not permit the results of
the people's dearly-bought victories to be treach
erously surrendered by any but themselves.
The Thirty-ninth Congress will maintain the
Constitution in its integrity. It will do what it
can, in spite of the veto power, to protect the
public faith and credit. It will invest the Ex
ecutive with ample power to protect and avenge
every loyal man in the country. It will strive
to guarantee to each State a republican form of
Government. It listens to the appeals of the
survivors of the brigade of loyal North Caro
linians who responded to the appeals of the
gallant Foster, and the Alabamians who followed
Spencer through the war, and will not consent
to yield them helpless victims to the malice of
the traitors who could not corrupt or overawe
them. The evidence taken by the “Central
Directory” shows that there arc such men
throughout the South, and if they are to be
abandoned to vengeance—if the South is to be
closed against Northern emigration—if they anil
the public debt and property —yes, and I may
add, peace—are to be conlided to the care of the
master spirits of the rebellion, it will not be
done by the Thirty-ninth Congress.
The crisis of our country—perhaps the last
great strain our institutions are to feel—will be
in the election of members to the Fortieth Con
gress. Neither Johnson nor the Mephistophelcs
of the State Department will waive any effort to
give success to “my policy;” hut the people,
true to Union nnd liberty at whatever cost of
watchfulness nnd labor, will thwart their machin
ations. The President may pardon Jefferson
Davis, but the people can prevent him from
leading Lee's army to the Canada line. New
Hampshire has sounded the “the general,” nnd
the citizen soldiers of the Republic will drive the
invaders back/'
Night I —The pulse of the great city lies still.
The echo of hurrying feet has long since died
away. The maiden dreams of her lover; the
wife”, of her absent husband ; the sick, of health,
the captive, of freedom. Softly falls the moon
light on those quiet dwellings; yet, under those
roofs are hearts that arc throbbing and breaking
with misery too hopeless for tears ; forms bent
before their time with crushing sorrow ; lips that
never smile, save when some mocking dream
comes to render the morrow’s waking tenfold
more bitter. There, on a mother's faithful
breast, calm and beautiful, lies the holy brow of
infancy. 0, could it but pass away thus, ere the
bow of promise has ceased to span its future 1
ere that serenest sky be darkened with lowering
clouds ! —ere that loving heart shall feel the
death-pang of despair !
There, too, sits Remorse, clothed in purple
and fine linen, “the worm that never dieth”
hid in its shining folds. There the weary watcher
by the couch of pain, the dull ticking to the
heart a nameless terror. With straining eye its
hours are counted ; with nervous hand the
draught that brings no healing is held to the
pallid lip. The measured tread of the w atchman
as he passes his round, the distant rumble of the
conch, perchance the disjointed fragment of a
song from Bacchanalian lips, alone breaks the
solemn stillness. At such an hour, serious
thoughts like unbidden guests, rush in. Life
appears like the dream it is—eternity, the wak
ening ; and involuntarily, the most careless eye
looks up appealingly to Him by whom the hairs
of our bead arc all numbered.
Blessed night! Wrap thy dark mantle round
these weary earth pilgrims! Over them all the
“ Eye that never slumbercth ” keepeth its tire
less watch. Never a fluttering sigh escapes a
human breast unheard by that pitying car. Never
an unspoken prayer for help, that finds not its
pitying responses in the bosom of Infinite Mercy.
General Howard’s Lecture. —The following
is the conclusion of General Howard’s recent lec
ture on Freedmen in Washington:—“l hope I
may be permitted to live to a good old age, that
I may have an earnest of what I so heartily be
lieve, that I may tell ray children's children of
these times when the American people put forth
their strength and saved a republic, broke the
chains of four millions of slaves, and inaugura
ted genuine, universal, unqualified liberty. Will
you go back? Will yon be satisfied with such
husks as prejudice and passion misnamed con
sideration? Or will you not rather conserve
every iota of right, principle and truth? You
have obtained aud reached forward till petty
quarrels and minor difference, whether occasion
ed by race or color, or what not, shall be com
pletely swallowed up in a clearer recognition by
us than we now have of infinite love, and a
clearer perception of the will and purpose of
Him who never forsakes the cause of the least of
all his children.”
Evidence of the prurient curiosity which wo
men of virtue sometimes feel about the ways of
the depraved of their uwn sex, was given in Cin
cinnati the other day. The occasion was the sale
of the furniture of a well-known brothel. The
boose was crowded with women of all social and
moral grades. Well-bred ladies jostled keepers
and inmates of establishments like that they bad
come to see, and bid against them for whatever
article took their fancy, with no apparent sense
of impropriety. Among the meetings recorded
was one of a lady who made her way through
the crowd to her husband, and pinched bis arm,
saying, “ I thought 1 should find you here 1”

Nasby on Use Sltnntton —A Look from hi*
Standpoint.
Cosrssssrr X Roam (which it In tb« Stall I
bt Kentucky), March 12, 186#. /
The politikle sky is oercast with friteful clouds.
Darkness isonthe'face uv the waters. The wares
is a rollin mountin high, the litenin flashes omi
nous thro the gloom, and the deep-mouthed thun
der mutters angrily in the distant#. Ez a senti
nel on the watch tower I look out, and what do I
see ? I see the old ship uv State loded down with
a valuable cargo of Postoffises, Collectorships
and sich, a laborin in the trough uv the sea, her
bowsprit stove in, her top-gallant lanyards bust
id, her jib-boom a flulterin in the gale, her cap
stan spliced, and her sheet anker torn to ribbons.
(Not bevin been a sailor, only ez a driver on the
Wabash kanal, it is possible my nautikle terms
may not be altogether correct. But it makes no
difference in the interior uv Kentucky.) She is
strivin to make her harbor, and is workin man
fully. Klose behind her is the long, low, rakish
skooner Dimocrisy, with all sale set, a tryin her
best to overtake and board her. For a time it
seemed cz tho she would be successful, but alas !
she is falliu nstern.and every minniltbe distance
between em is a widenin, widenin, widenin, and
at present writin there ain’t the remotest pros
pect uv their gettin within bailin distance uv
each sther.
To drop the metator (wich by the way I kin
jerk when I feel so disposed), the prospect isn t
cz entouragin ez it wuz, and I fear, in fact I feel
certain that the shortcuts tooths which the Dim
ocrisy thought it had found through Androo
Johnson’s veto, is the longest way around. I
cannot understand’what indoost the Dimocratic
leaflets, our chosin standard-bearers, to make
such tgrejus asses of theirselves ez to place euny
dependence on Johnson at all. What cood they
hev b n thinkin uv? Wuz not our experience in
1864 sufficient to deter em from makin any ex
periment which involved abandonment uv any uv
our principles? Didn’t we in the hope uv ketch
in Abolition war votes nominate Mick Lellan,
and didn’t the war men jeer at us, and flout us,
and say, “ Behold, we hev better war men uv
our own—why should we leave home to find that
uv which hev a plenty 7" When Androo Johu
j son in a fit uv temporary indignashun split on
Sumner, why did our people like idiots pick him
up, snd indorse him without waitin for the fax ?
Dido’t they know that Sumner wuz a sort uv a
dose uv calumcl, wich worked on the President’s
liver and jiccessiated the discharge uv all the of
fensive mutter wich had accumulated durin his
long term uv Dimocrisy ? Uv coarse it wuz. and
to-day Androo Johnson, hevin in that speech got
rid uv the last vestage uv Dimocrisy which in
fected him. comes up a stronger man agin us than
cror. We made two errors. On the 4th uv March,
1865, at his inoggerashun, when he madeaspek
tikle of hissclf, we murmured gently to ourselves,
“ It’s all right—he’s one uv us 1” And we sod
the same after the splurge uv the 22d uv Febru
ary last. Oh, my friends, they wuz both fatal
errers. Them spasms wuz the effort uv a noble
nachcra tryin to pit rid uv Locofocoism, and from
the fact he immejitely after commenst a misscl
lancously apintin Ahilishnists and Republicans
to offices, and hozn’t showed a sine uv a disposi
tion to extend his hand to a single ennfidiu Dem
ocrat, it’s my opinion he’s succeeded.
We bet too heavy on the fight atween the Pres
ident and Sumner. Sumner is ordained to aliuz
hev a gong uv sum kind, wich he he is also or
dained to keep perpetually a poundin. He’s bin
for several years nmusin hisself a poundin the
Dimocrisy, and when there wasn’t enuff uv that
to make it interestin he turned on Johnson, and
he’ll pound at him till suthin else excites his
wrath. He’s a Spanish bull, possessin sharp
horns, and a immense amount uv strength and a
gility, which he is continooally a wastin by jump
in at sich red flags cz are miscbeevusly waved a
forc him. He’s jest cz apt to gore his friends ez
bis enemies, and his luugin at Johnson wuz no
sign that Johnson had gone hack on Ahlishnism.
But enuff uv this. Since it hez become a fixed
fact that the boorish tailor, who now by accident
okkepies the place uv the marter Linkin, made
vacant by his untimely death by the hend uv a
vile assassin (whose only redeemin trait wuz that
he wuz a stanch,nncoropromisin Dimocrat) —now
I say that it’s plain that this drunkin sot ain’t
ngoin to distribute the patronage amongst us w ho
need it so much, I ask in indignashun wat is it
that we are asked to indorse?
He proposes to continue the Freedmen’s Buro
bizness.
He refooses to withdraw tho military from the
Dimokratic States.
He refooses to restore to our sufferin brethren
nv the Dimocratic States the habis corpnsses
wich the tyrant Linkin wrested from them.
He keeps Jefferson Davis a pinin in a loathe
somc dungeon, and only refooses to bring him
to trial hccaz, 4sooth, he haint yet got things in
the right shape to hang him.
I cood enumerate other insults and oppressions
he hez piled upon Dimocrats, hut 1 forbear. 1
might if I wuz disposed to harrow up the Dimo
cratic sole and lasserate the Dimocratic bnsom,
state how I wuz trccted, when on the 241 h uv
Febrooary last I made a delegashun nv myself
and went to Washington for the purpose uv lay
ing before him the necessity uv the removal uvy
the postmaster at the Corners, and the appoint
ment uv myself in his stead. I found that his
speech had reached all other parts of the Too
nited Slates ez soon ez it bed Kentucky, for there
wnz suthin overa hundred thousand stanch Dira
ocrats there, all with petitions noomcrously sign
ed, which they lied held over from Bookannon’s
administration, recommcndin uv era to place*.—
How wuz we received ? How did Androo John
son treet ns ? I might say how emphatically I
wnz showed out nv his room, and with what
reckless profanity I bcerd him remark that Wash
ington had stunk with secesb ever since be vetoed
the bill, and that fool speech had acted on the
whole country like a puke, and that each State
bad spewed its foulest material outa Washing
ton, and that the atmosphere wuz heavy with
their breath, ct settry, et settry, but I forbear.
Androo Johnson may be worthy of Dimocratic
support, bat he hez a queer way uv showin it.—
I know not what others may do, but ez for me
and my household, Ml run after do strange gods.
Ef be wants us, let him call on us in language
which w« kin understand.
