~TO INVALIDS
SUFFERINGS HAVE
been protracted from hidden causes and mal
treatment, and who require prompt relief
to render existence desirable.
Dr. J. PERRAULT, GRADUATE OF
Guccn’a College, hops to inform patients
and others seeking medical advice that he may
he consulted personally or hy letter In all ca
ses of Nervous and Physical Debility,
and the various disorders arising from sedenta
ry habits, excess, accident or climate, from 9,
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,
f.,r it is universally acknowledged that the
treatment of these particular diseases consti
tutes a branch of medicine which has Nl.\ LIl
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 WELL 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 stage* 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 mode of
proctlce, suggested and improved hy 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 iff relief else
where. that they may derive benefit from examination of
the urine in cases of Seminal Emissions and Impotence,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 Vcnerial Diseases in any stage,
Pains in the Bones, Rheumatism, or from the effects of
Mercurial Poisoning, who ran 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 he given to several who have been cured by this
treatment, after having (ailed with others.
Persons of both sexes who hare impaired their health
and destroyed the vigor of their minds by their own mis
conduct, and thus deprived themselves of tin* pleasures of
life are informed that on consulting Da. PERRAULT they
will find a friend and a Physician who has cured many in
every part of the State, who applied broken down in health,
hut are now rejoicing in all that makes life desirable and
man happy. References can he given, when required, in
almost every part the State, from parties who know of
cases cured hy Dr. PERRAULT. after in vain trying sever
al physicians.
His* Diplomas are in his office, where all persons can see
for themselves that they are under the care of a regularly
qualified practitioner. We have the latest and safest rem
edies. in such mode of cure as can he obtained at no other
..ffl.e on tliis coast, in SvphillU. 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. Da. PERRAULT still retains the
only agency in California of
DE. BEIOT’S FEMALE MONTHLY PILLS.
Their immense sale has established their reputation us a
female remedy nnapproached and far in advance of every
other medicine for Suppression and Irregularities, and oth
er obstructions in females. On the receipt of Five Dollars
those Pills will be sent, by mail or express, to any part of
the world, secure from curiosity or damage.
Person* at a distance can be cured at home by address
ing a letter to Da. J. PERRAULT, corner Sacramento and
Montgomery streets, Rooms Noe. 9. 10 and 11. or Box 973,
Post Office.* San Francisco, stating the rase ns minutely »•*
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 our dealings, frank in our opinions, and our charge*
will be far less than demanded by other physicians. We
invite investigation, claim not to know everything nor to
cure everylusly, hut we do lay claim to reason and com
mon sense, and to cure 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 n». It will
coat nothing, aa consultations arc free. 41.1 y.is.

Gex. Grant and the Presidency.—The Ga
lena (’llinois) Daily Gazette of March 14th, no
tices the nomination of Gen. Grant lor the Pre
sidency by a Republican meeting in Rochester,
X. Y. It says that Gen. Grant is a soldier and
not a politician, that he has taken no part with
cither,Congress or the President ns against the
other, and that bis opinions must be gathered
from Lis official acts. The Gazette then adds,
with an emphasis which attracts some attention
from the fact that Galena is the home of Gen.
Grant :
We know all his hopes and sympathies arc
will) the great and patriotic I nion party of this
country. In feeling and sentiment he is thor
oughly identified with the millions of loyal peo
ple who, in the long years ol war and carnage,
and blood, gave their hearts, their blood, and
their treasure to their country, lie has neither
sympathy nor toleration for any party, nor any
set of men, who were against the country in its
terrible time of trial and peril through which it
has safely passed.
With tio ambition lint to serve the best inter
ests of his country, guided by the loftiest pa
triotism, looking to a regenerated nation, now
resting upon the basis of universal liberty, all
loyal and good men can turn to him as their re
liance and hope. If the good of the nation de
mand it there can be no doubt that lie will, at
the proper time, respond to the unanimous voice
of his loyal countrymen, and permit litem to
rally under bis banner, which will prove no less
victorious in peace than it was in the storm-cloud
of war.
More Danokbocs than Xitro-Glvcerine.—To
the greatest deep there is still a greater depth,
says an old proverb, and it also appears that,
than the greatest explosive there is still a more
violent explosive. We had supposed that in de
posing gunpowder and guncotton in favor of
nitro-glyccrine or gionoine. human ingenuity had
done its worst, but it seems that we are mistaken.
Mining enterprise has called for the application
of new explosives, more formidable than any
hetetofore employed, and tints it was that the
use of the article which now absorbs the atten
tion of the community came into play. More
recently, we learn, a new substance is in vogue,
for use in mining enterprise, which we are here
after to know by the name of sodium amalgam.
We had encountered the name “sodium” so
often before that it seemed as familiar ns that of
the now obsolete article camphene. Sodium is
described by the Cull as the most powerful and
deadly explosive substance known, in detonat
ing powder one ounce of it is equal to about
twenty-five pounds of gunpowder, or two and a
half pounds of nitro-glyccrine. A spoonful of
watercoming in contact with two hundred ounces
of sodium would produce an explosion equal to
that which follows the ignition of live thousand
pounds of powder, or five hundred pounds of
nitro-glycerinc. From these facts it might be
supposed that sodium is not the safest of all
chemical compounds to handle or transport.—
Sacramento Dee.
We had intended, says the Placerville Mirror ,
to publish one of the President's late speeches ;
lint our devil put a veto on it by proving that
there were not enough of the character I in the
office to set it up. Here's a specimen of the
style, however :
I stood in the Senate of the United States de
nying the doctrine of secession. I think I have
given evidence that I have been sincere and in
earnest, and now I want to know wtiy it is that
the whole pack of slanderers arc snapping at my
heels? Why is it they array themselves against
mo? Is H because I stand by the side of the
people—and when I say the people I include
the soldiers and sailors ! !
Astonishing ! that he considers the soldiers
and sailors “people !
A Newspaper.—lt was liishop Horn’s own
opinion that there was no belter moralist than the
newspaper. He says The follies, vices and
consequent miseries of multitudes, displayed in
newspapers, are so many beacons continually
burning to turn others from the rock on which
! th e y have been shipwrecked. What more pow-
I erful dissuasive from suspicion, jealousy and
1 aneer than the slorv of one friend murdered by
i another in a duel ? What caution more likely to
! he effective against gambling and profligacy,
1 than the mournful relation of an execution, or
the fate of a desparing suicide? What finer lec
ture on the necessity of economy, than the auc
tion of estates, houses and furniture? Only take
a newspaper,and consider it well, pay for it, and
j it will instruct thee.”
Gloxoixe Interdicted. —Bandmann’s state
i mcnl that the Prussian Government had ordered
j his patent hell-broth to be carried on all the
| railways in that country, is slightly contradicted
I jr the following, from a Hamburg paper, of Jan
uarv, 1866, containing an advertisement of Tink
ler V Co., agents of Nobel, tbe manufacturer :
“In consequence of the refusal of the North
! German Railroad Association to transport nitro
glycerine or “gionoine,” over their routes, the
j advertisers are prepared to send by wagon,
i and to enter into special contracts for furnishing
! it, but in quantities of not less than one hundred
pounds.”
Uscle Springer, of the Amador Ledger thinks
we exaggerated a little when we related that
Dan. Bowers, eat three dozen boiled eggs at a
sitting That was the frozen truth, I ncle, and
: yon dare not offer a wager, hereabouts, that he
! can't eat five dozen jnst as easy.
To the Baby.
Funny thing a baby is,
Curious little creature ;
Funny is its little phiz,
Comic every feature.
Helpless thing a baby is ;
Tiny hand uplifting
O’er the troubled tide of life
Into which 'lis drifting.
Mystery a baby is—
Memories of heaven
Still must hover in the soul
Such a short time given.
Solemn thing a baby is,
Since it must inherit
AH the loss and gain of life,
All the sin and merit.
Funny, helpless, mystic, sad, —
Let me tell you,-Freddy,
Half the good and sweet of life
Is the getting ready.
Yours the snnsbine—take it all
tVhilc you’re weak and tiny ;
By-and-by the days that come
May not be so shiny.
Women in Paßagiay. —The author of a book j
entitled “ Sketches in Paraguay,” gives us an
idea of one of the customs of the Paraguayan *
ladies as follows Everybody smokes in Para
guay, and nearly every female above thirteen [
years of age chews. lam wrong. They do not j
chew, but put tobacco in their mouths, keep \
it there constantly except when eating, and in- j
stead of chewing, roll it about with their longue i
and stick it. Only imagine yourself about to I
kiss the rich red lips of a magnificent little Hebe, j
arrayed in satjn and flashing with diamonds : i
she puts you back with one delicate hand, while j
with the fair, taper fingers of the other she draws !
forth from her mouth a brownish-black roll of
tobacco, quite two inches long, and looking like
a monstrous grub, and depositing the delicate
morsel on the rim of your sombrero, puts up
her face and is ready for a salute ! I have some
times seen an over-delicate foreigner turn with a
shudder of loathing under such circumstances,
and get the epithet el raracn (the savage) ap
plied to him by the offended beauty for his
squeamishness. However, one soon gets used
to this in Paraguay, where you are, per force of
custom, obliged to kiss every lady you arc in
troduced to ; and at least one-half you meet are
really tempting enough to render you reckless
of consequences, and yon would sip the dew of
the proffered lips in the face of a tobacco bat
tery, even of the essence of “ Old Virginia.”
The Controller of .Stale has addressed a cir
cular to the Assessors of the different counties, ;
calling their attention to the following require- ■
mrnts of an Act passed during the late session I
of the Legislature :
Section 1. All property exempt from taxation I
under the laws of this State and not belonging |
In the Flitted States or this State, nor to any
County, Town, or City, shall he entered upon
the assessment rolls in the several Counties,
with the name of the owner, the description, and
valuation, in the same manner as property not j
exempt.
Section Each Assessor before delivering j
over the assessment roll to the Board of Equal- 1
izntion, shall attach thereto his affidavit stat-|
ing that he has complied with the provisions i
of this Act so far as they relate to the duties of)
Assessor and the entry of exempt properly on |
the assessment roll.
The Savannah Republican says :—“ Disguise it
as you may—spurn it as an unpleasant idea and
hard to be realized—there is nothing truer than
that the people of the south are on probation,
and that it is in their power to make the result
for or against them. The basis of every plan
yet proposed, looking to the rehabillitution of
the States whose functions a? such were suspen
ded by their voluntary action—to use the words
of Hie acknowledged champion of the South and
high exponent of the conservative doctrine—is
the assumption that there is a willingness to ex
tend a loyal support to Government. And it
requires no extraordinary keenness of percep
tion to discover that this support docs not con
sist in evincing an implacable spirit of defiance,
or showing themselves still imbued with the of
fensive ideas from which the rebellion sprung.”
A Reconstbi’cted Georgian's Oath. —The
Internal Revenue Bureau has received the fal
lowing amended iron-clad oath from a Georgian,
appointed Assistant Assessor for one of the sub
districts in that State ;
“ I , of the county of , and State of
Georgia, do solemnly swear that I have never
voluntarily borne arms against the Fuited States
since I have been a citizen theirof, except as a
Captain in the Confederate States army ; that
1 hare given no aid. &c., to persons engaged in
armed hostility, except as aforesaid.”
The printed form of oath is interlined so as to
truthfully set forth the new official's correct
status.
Bit one Answer. —Not a word can be nttor
red in advocacy of justice, nor a sentiment ex
pressed in defense of the rights of man, but the
Democracy begin to scream about negro equality.
“Negro equality,” says the Democratic journal
of this city, “is one of the principal issues of
the day.” The invariable reply to every argu
ment that is made in behalf of impartial justice
is ; “ Yon want negro equality.” Tristam
Shandy tells us that his Uncle Toby, no matter
what subject was in discussion, would always
interpose or reply with the remark : “ I wish
yon could have seen how large an army we bad
in Flanders.” Uncle Toby’s favorite remark was
not more irrelevant than this constant twaddle
of the Copperheads about the social equality of
the races.— Oregonian.
Threatening.—The editor of the .Salt Lake
Vedette has rcreived a letter written in blood—
or red ink—which reads : It is
the “red hand” of the Destroying Angels, and
threatens assassination. Theeditor is not moth
frightened by the order, but says :
Well, we shall keep the document, and leave
our friends to judge whether we are much fright
ened. If these miserable hounds and cut-throats
think they can intimidate the Vedette, why they
are simply mistaken. We have spoken plainly
in the past, and we shall speak still more plainly
in the future, bolding ourselves accountable only
to God, our conscience, and the laws of the land.
Local Reduction. —During a rain storm, the
President of a Democratic convention, seeing
a small number present, made the following
speech; “Thank God for rain! The more
rain the more corn, the more corn the more

la reference to the introduction of litis dealb
deuling fluid into California, the Auburn Start
and Stripes says:
“ When Bandmann, Nielsen, St Co., sent their
circular to the country press, begging for the
gratuitous advertisement of “ Nobel’s Blasting
Oil,” they little thought what wide-spread and
horrible notoriety that villainous compound was
destined shortly to achieve. It seems, indeed,
that they were almost entirely unacquainted with
its dangerous qualities—which is not to be wond
ered at, inasmuch ns few practical chemist*
know much about it beyond the fact that it i*
one of the most dangerous compounds ever in
vented : and it is not a substance to invite ex
periment. tVe doubt whether Mr. Alfred Nobel,
who calls himself the 11 inventor ” of nilro-gly
ccrinc, is fully aware of its nature, for we can
hardly think any man knowing how dangerous
it is Would be so depraved ns to jeopardise
human life to a fearful extent by shipping it on
crowded railway cars and passenger steamers ns
ordinary merchandise, and under names which,
to any but practical chemists, afford no index to
its c haracter. Mr. Bandmann testified before the
Coroner's jury in San Francisco that the railways
in Germany carried this oil as ordinary merchan
dHsc—a statement which, doubtless, he believed
to be true ; but it seems that the German rail
way officials, having learned its dangerous char
acter. have refused to transport it under any cir
cumstances, and the German agent advertises to
supply it by means of wagons.
The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce
have memorialized Congress to pass laws forbid
ding the transportation of nitre-glycerine by
steamer or otherwise, within the Federal juris
diction. From the testimony of chemists it ap
pears that it is easily manufactured, and if it is
desirable to make use of it for blasting, the in
gredients, which taken separately are perfectly
i harmless, it may be mixed on tbe spot. It was
1 shown by competent testimony that nitro-gly
cerine is exploded either by strong bent or a
slight concussion ; that it freezes at a tempera
ture of 428 Fahrenheit, and in its solid state is
| exploded by a slight blow, or even by friction,
it is made by mixing nitric and sulphuric acid
and glycerine with constant agitation.”
The Sacramento lies says of nitro-glycerine,
and its inventor:
in all the accounts we have seen respecting
the origin of nitro-glycerine, the invention has
i been ascribed to Alfred Nobel, ft German. In
looking over the I'nited Slates Dispensatory, us
revised by Wood and Bache, we find the name of
|M. Sobrero given as the inventor. The glycerine
j itself is produced not only during the saponifica-
I tion of fats and oils by oxide of lead, in forming
lead plaster, but also during the same process
‘ when effected by potassa and soda in the manu
| facture of soap ; the alkalies uniting with the
only acids, and setting the glycerine free. When
treated with equal parts of strong nitric and
sulphuric acids, successively, added in small
portions, nt n temperature kept below freezing,
glycerine is converted into ft bright yellow, vola
line, explosive nnd poisonous oleaginous liquid,
called by its discoverer nitro-glycci ine or gloninn.
it is used, ns well ns glycerine, in the treatment
of diseases. Considering the uncertainty and
occasional violence of this substance, together
with its liability to explosion, it is hardly pro
bable that it will come into nae ns a remedy.

A Word with Young Men.—lf you were just
starting on a journey to visit new and strange
lands, you would thank any one that bad been
there before you for any little scraps of informa
tion concerning the country you were to visit—
the character of the inhabitants, the route you
should take, ami the dangers and difficulties you
would be likely to encounter. You are just em
barking upon a long journey. \\ c lieve traveled
the road before you, ami we propose to give you
a word or two of advice. And in doing so wo
shall drop metaphor and come down to good
plain English, if yon are fortunate enough to
have been horn poor, or in moderate circumstan
ce*, nnd are the possessor of good common sense,
you will appreciate what we have to say; if nut,
yon will go your own way. We speak of being
born poor as “ fortunate.” It is so in this, that
you have before you a larger field to conquer,
and far brighter laurels will crown the victory.
The hard experiences of poverty are necessary to
unfold within you the noblest attributes of char
acter. lie who has never struggled with and
triumphed over these rugged conditions of life
knows not the blessings of such a schooling.—
The great trouble with most young men is. they
arc too sensitive to the opinions of those whose
circumstances allow of more elegant leisure am*
less restraint—in other words, of those whose
wealthy but foolish parents allow their boys to
indulge in all the iittlc'vanitics to which young
men are susceptible. Hence, they acquire ex
travagant tastes which they have not the means
to gratify. You should not choose such associ
ates. While they arc laying the foundation for
idle am] dissolute lives, you should be storing
your mind with useful knowledge, mid building
up ft character which, ere long, will make you ;i
man amongst men. Cultivate that sterling
virtue, self-reliance, nnd continually aim at
something higher and better in life. Keep away
from silly, fashionable butterflies of girls. Like
the witch light that plays around the deadly
swamp, they will lure yon to ruin. If yon would
have female society, {and the right kind of such
society is ever desirable) select those gems of
young womanhood, girls who arc not ftshamed
to be employed at something useful, and who
think of something else than dress and show.—
Spend your evenings at home nnd keep away
from the saloons. Save your money ; cultivate
habits of industry. Establish a reputation for
honesty and fair dealing. Be punctual and
faithful in business matters, and ever strive to
preserve unsullied the priceless jewel of a good
name. Follow these directions and you will be
surprised to find how readily the olwtacles to
success in life will melt away before your earnest
endeavors.
Women is Montana. — A citizen recently re
ceived a letter from a friend at Virginia City,
Montana Territory, says the Witcomin Capital,
in which he gives much advice and information,
among which is the following :
1 would never bring a family here, as ever?
other man who has come with his wife has lost
her. Women can earn money here falter than
men, and they very soon become dissatisfied with
their husbands and take up with other men, and
that is the last of them, iou may have a woman
with'mind enough to stick by yon, but, if so, she
will do belter than the wouen who have come
here by hundreds, even old married people.
The San Francisco Cuff, says the Kussian
Telegraph Company, have expended one million
dollars in that city, during the past Winter, in
building boats and purchasing supplies.
“ I see him on his winding way,” said Mrs.
Jenkins, as she saw Mr. Jenkins cork-screwing
his way home, just as the shades of twilight
were creeping over the landscape.
