TO INVALIDS SUFFERINGS HAVE been protracted from hidden causes and mal treatment, and who require prompt relief to render existence desirable. * , Dr. J. PEKRAULT, GRADUATE OF Gneen’i College, begs to inform patients and others seeking medical advice that ho may be consulted personally or by letter in all ca ses of Nervoit* 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, r. M., at his office, Armory Duilding, northeast corner Mont gomery and Sacramento streets. Rooms Nos. 9, 10 and 11, first floor up stairs. Entrance on cither 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 NE\ hR 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 arc totally incompe tent to perform the duties of their s vcallcd 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 t>> 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 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 mode of proctice, suggested and Improved by experience, and ex periments made through the fuedium 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 Impotency.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 Vencrial 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 pb-amires of life arc informed that on consulting Dr. PERRAULT they will rind a friend and a Physician who has cured many 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 Stale, from parties who know of cases cured by Dr. PERRAULT. after in vain trying sever al physicians. His Diplomas aie 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 i>afest rem edies. in such mode of cure as can be 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. Dr. PERRAULT still retains the only agency in California of DR. BRIOT’S FEMALE MONTHLY PILLS. Their immense sale has established their reputation as 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 these Pills will be sent, by mail or express, to any part of the world, secure from curiosity or damage. Persons at a distance can be cured at home by address ing a letter to Dr. J. PERRAULT. corner Sacramento and Montgomery streets, Rooms Nos. 9, 10 and 11, or Box 9T3.

We invite investigation, claim not to know everything nor to cure everybody, but 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 us.

Doyle says of the women of San Francisco :—“ There is and has been an epidemic among women in this city, to don the habiliments of men for the purpose of seeing the sights prohibited to their inspection while wear ing the feminine garb. The first place a woman disguised in man's clothing visits are the cellars, where “pretty waiter girls’’ do their “beer slinging." They hear some rough jokes, sec some lascivious actions, and familiarize them selves to manly actions. Then the Bella Union is visited, and that lips out all their remaining modesty. Then the Chinese dens and Anatomical Museum makes them perfect with forbidden sights ; so if they get drunk during some of their wanderings, it is not to be wondered at. A sau cy lady got a punch in the eye the other night, and a respectable though mischievous girl had a black eye the other morning. A jealous husband returned, unexpectedly, to his home the other night, and caught a well dressed fellow emerging from his cottage. The husband knocked him down, broke his ribs, and fractured his arm.— Ilia wife has been bolstered up in bed ever since, with a fractured arm, broken ribs, and n bruised face. A brother went home a little tipsy the other night, and met n “cove" in the hall of his father’s house. He familiarly slapped the “cove’s” plug hat over his eyes, and had to purchase a new one for himself the next day.— His sister was the “cove.” These instances are facts. Girls should beware of any woman who would suggest a “ lark ” of this kind to them. Women destroy more women than men do." As Apt Comparison.—The Daily Post is a large aad handsome Republican journal justcom- \ menced at Detroit, Michigan, Gen. Carl Shnrz editor. It is able and Rylical in tone. Here is a scrap from one of its editorials :—“ It is rela ted of a jolly old seaman, that when the canni- ’ bala, into whose hands he had fallen, were dis- \ cussing the question whether he should be boil ed, roasted or cut into slices and broiled upon a bed of hot coals, he chewed his “ fine cut ” with undisturbed sang froid , but when n proposition was made to stuff his carcass with young men- | key. preparatory for baking it, be suddenly broke 1 out, “ Avast there, you black devils ! ain’t I go- | ing to be consulted on that point ?” The nbsur- j dity of hit being consulted was so overpowering j to tlic Feejee intellect that the savage Islanders set him at liberty, in payment for the laugh he had created. It may strike the gentlemen who are busily en gaged in framing reconstruction policies, Freed men Bureau bills and representation amendments to the Constitution, as equally absurd lhat the negro should desire to be consulted as to the dis position to be made of his future on this conti nent. He has been silent, except an occasional semi-groan, or involuntary squeak, during half, a century of selling in the shambles, flaying with 1 the lash, and occasionally coastings at the stake ; i and it certainly does appear a little odd that he should desire to be consulted on the question of stuffing, now that he is to be finally served up at the feast which is to celebrate a restored Union and reconstructed republic.” Tus Peace Proclamation. —The New York Tribune, in a brief paragraph, shows the meaning of the late Peace proclamation of the President. It S! ,yg: Those who imagine that President Johnson’s proclamation announcing “peace ” is of no value but as a mere expression of Execu tive opinion, arc mistaken. The President docs not issue proclamations that mean nothing ; and this last is in the interest of retrenchment and reform. While war “ raged,” officers of the ar my were allowed war privileges. They had war rations, which were better and larger than the rations of peace. They rode a larger number of horses, occupied more'numerous quarters, and were attended by a greater,number of servants. Now that we have “ peace,” these absorbing gentlemen will not be paid for extra horses which were never in stable, and extra rations which never eaten, or for John Does and Richard Roes in the shape of “servants." Idaho Cchbency.—The Owyhee Avalanche is responsible for the following statement “ The people would welcome almost any change in the currency—if but for the sake of variety. Mer chants and mechanics generally refuse nearly ev erv species offered. Laboring men can not pro cure the necessary article of grub and clothes without having their currency blowed and cull ed We are informed that a number of compa nies will soon establish the rule of paying in greenbacks. Gold coin or clean dust is lovely, and our favorite circulating medium, but just now greenbacks would beagreat financial relief.” We notice by a San Francisco dispatch to the Bee that Mrs. Dr. DeWolf was before the Police Court the other day for appearing on the street in a pair of bifurcated casements only. It is probable that they were the Doctor’., and that he was at home repairing his wife s street dress. Humboldt Register is. pub lished at Unionville, Nevada, and has commenc ed its fourth year. Forbes knows how a good newspaper is made, and is very sound on the po litical issues of now-a-daya- The Sin" Journal , of Geneva, says a field of wheat buried under an avalanche for years proceeded on its growth as soon as the snow had melted.

[The following beautiful poem.has appeared in this paper before, but in accordance with the expressed wish of many we re-publish it. A more exquisite and tenderly-worded pro duction docs not appear in American literature :] ROCK HE TO SLEEP. DT PLORESCS PKRCT. Backward, turn backward, 0 Time In your flight. Make me a child again Just for to-night! Mother, come back from the echoless shore, Take me again to your heart aa erf yore; Kiss from my forehead the fumrn* of care. Smooth the few silver threads out of my hair; Over my slumber* your loving watch keep— Rock me to sleep, mother—rock me to sleep! Backward, flow backward, O tide of tbe years! T am so weary of toil and of tears— Toil without recompense, tears all In vain— Take them, and give mo my childhood again! I have grown weary of dust and decay— Weary of flinging my soul-wealth away— Weary of sowing for others to reap— Rock mo to sleep, mother—rock mo to sleep! Tired of the hollow, the base, the untrue, Mother, O mother, my heart calls for you! Many a summer the grass has grown green, BloMOmed and faded our faces between; Yet, with strong yearning and passionate pain, Long I to-night for your presence again, Como from the silence so long and so deep— Rook me to sleep, mother—rock me to sleep! Over ray heart. In the days that are flown. No love like mother’s love ever has shone; No other worship abides and endures— Faithful, unselfish and patient like yours; None like a mother can charm away pain From the sick soul and the world-weary brain, 81 umber’s soft calm o’er my heavy lids creep. Rock mo to sleep, mother—rock me to sleep 1 Come, let your brown hair, just lighted with gold, Fall on your shoulders again as of old; Let It drop over my forehead to-night. Shading my faint eyes away from the light; For with its sunny edge shadows once more Haply will throng the sweet visions of yore— Lovingly, softly, its bright billows sweep— Rock mo to sleep, mother—rock me to sleep! Mother, dear mother, the years have been long Bince I last listened your lullaby song; Sing, then, and unto my soul It shall seem Womanhood’s years have been only a dream. Clasped to your heart in a loving embrace. With your light lashes Just sweeping my face, Never hereafter to wake or to weep— Rock me'to sleep, mother—rock me to sleep! The Fate of the Miner. Surely, the individual miner, whether he works independently, or on the principle of associa tion, or for wages, is deserving of a hand ! some reward. In the former case, especially, l«a has everything to struggle against—among which, a tangled network of ill-digested laws is not the least —while the sole protection he en joys is often the trusty rifle. Add to these draw backs the accidents which arc of constant occur rence in shafts, drifts and tunnels, and we think few will begrudge the miner the little “ pile ” with which he is sometimes enabled to retire to a farm or a profitable trade. Of late, our home exchanges arc frightfully abundant in mining accidents, a majority having proved fatal to the victims. The patent “ cages ” invented for the express purpose of preventing casualities in as cending and descending shafts, have not only failed to accomplish their object, but accidents are said, since their introduction, to have in creased. The number of broken skulls and fractured arms proceeding from this source alone is beyond ready belief. Scanty and insufficient limbering is another fruitful cause of injury, at tributable, it is said, to the uncertain tenure by which the mining property of the State is at present held, thus forbidding the needful degree of expenditure. Premature blasts and risks from floods eke out the balance. A large pro portion of the interments in the mining counties originate in this manner, leading to the infer ence that some precautions more effectual than any which have been adopted are still necessary to attain the proper degree of safety. The mat ter has become of sufficient importance to be re gulated by law. It is strange that eo little actual provision should have been made for the protection of the miner, whose labor forms so large a part of the substantial prosperity of the State. Provided with little but the mere necessaries of life, he makes his location in some deep gorge, or by the side of a mountain stream, and simultane ously with the commencement of his work, enters upon his improvements. Ho builds his cabin, stakes out his claim, sets his sluices, or begins to dig his tunnel, or sinks his shaft. Under even favorable ciscumstances n freshet may oc cur, and wash away in a day the fruits of a month’s hard exertion, or the snows may fall to the depth of many feet, and bury his little prop erty from human vision for nearly, if not quite half a year—fortunate, too, if it do not bury himself. Or, in the dead of the Winter's night, when the tornado is raging like a chained demon, struggling to be free, a mammoth tree falls upon bis little shanty, and grinds bis bones to pow der. The roads are infested by desperate char acters, who often compel him to disgorge the hard-earned fruits of months of toil. It is cruel that to all his disadvantages, of which these arc but a few, the liability to accident should bo ad ded.—Sacramento Bee. Refehuinu to the latest style of tilting hoops, which seem designed expressly to show the la dies’ I—imbs, a San Francisco paper says:— “There is something absolutely shocking in the deliberate immodesty which has prompted this shameful fashion, and if the women who adopt it are mistaken by those who see them abroad for members of that wretched sisterhood who subsist on depravity, they can blame none but themselves, nor appeal fur sympathy to any but their peers in folly. Truly, when the women of America begin to envy and copy the gaudy cos tumes of the lorettes . there was cause for alarm, but we never dreamed till now that their vanity would lead them so far ns to parody for the a musement of licentious men, not only the dre.s, but the lewdness of action of their fallen and abandoned sisters.” Zach. Montgomery hag started (or revived) a paper, which will be known as the Accidental and Rearguard. It is to be published by a cor poration, whose stock is to be divided into ten thousand shares, at one dollar in confederate scrip per share. The Rearguard will not be sent to the keeper of any public school, under the present American school law ; but every low grog-shop will be supplied at half the published prices.— Gold Hill Xeu-t. As Irishman who keeps a hotel in Montreal in forms the public by advertisement, that be has still on sale a small quantity of whisky which was drank by the Prince of Wale* when he was in that city. General Grant wa» invited after service in Grace Church, to remain and bear the organ play. “No,” replied the General, “I don’t knotv one tune from another, and would rather hear a bass dram than an organ any day.” Oct or Danger.—“ Father,” said a cobbler’s boy, as be was pegging away at an old shoe, “they say that trout bite now.” “ Well, well, said the old man, “just nick to your work and they wont bite yoo.” NUMBER 19. About (he “ Mease” Faully. Douglas City, May 15, 1866. Diab Jocbsal Billings says that whe» a man gets so low in this world that his dog throws off on him, he is about as far down as it is pos sible to go by land. But when a President of these United States so far degenerates that the Copperheads throw off on him, don’t you think the varnish is taken from Josh's dorg man ? ■ We are occasionally treated to a telegram to the effect that the President is weakening. Now, who the d—euce (swearing has commenced) cares whether be weakens or not ? I don't, most assuredly, not wishing to be considered the horn tooter or mouth-piece of any party, but simply an honest plebean who exercises the right and privilege of saying just what he pleases. Oth ers may receive him back into the folds of the Union party, but as for me and the “ Jacinto " household, and I may add, the “Serablina" family, a very small quantity of Johnson will go a long ways with us. I never was much stock after that “ Moses,” and got a hearty jawing for daring to say so after ho was nominated on our ticket for the Vice Presidency. Should the signs of repentance be of the suicidal kind indulged in by Mr. Iscariot, and he comes to the full de termination to fall down and gush bis intestines out, I know where lots and slathers of fields may be had for n blamed sight less money than thir ty smooth quarters. The self-styled and latter-day 11 Moses”—tbs first extension south of the Pcntetcuch—who was going to take poor Sambo kindly by the handand lead him from bondage to the happy land of Dix ie (for the information of the unsophisticated I will state that the true meaning of Dixie is the Negro Heaven, a place of freedom and pleasure supposed to be midway between South Carolina and eternal bliss,) where never-failing rivers of pure hominy flow with an easy current, and clus ters and gobs of possnm-fat dangle luxuriantly from every shrub. But the Democratic Aarons erected a Peter Funk side-shod, consisting of a juvenile yaller bovine and a private bar, or as your friend of the Sage-Brush Register would say, 41 corner grocery.” He swallowed the bait, and what is the result? To-day this great staff bearer of the First Tennessee Corps du Afrique, (State Militia) this Major General of littleness in high posish, finds himself without friends, par ty or birthright, and a very small quantity of 41 potash ” left. Theologians and commentators admit that Moses, Sr., was somewhat of the Sambo persua sion himself. I honestly think that when a man steals the nom de plume of great authors, he ought to take color, smell and all along with it. If so in this case, then the old saying of 44 d—n a nig ger baby whitewashed,” will hold good, even in the sere and yellow leaf. We are threatened with 44 Cromwellism.” Just let her Cromwell ; I'm on it. Congress suits me for President, and I should take a great deal of plcasute in sup porting the old fellow for the second term. I shall conclude by asking if the doings of this Moses, Jr., are not written in the old files of the Knoxville Whig f The reader has by this time no doubt arrived at the conclusion that I am a Radical, and have no relish for Johnson manna. No news—no births, marriages or accidents.— Yes, I caved in on the bed-rock this morning.— No bones broken, but slight concussion of the lumber region and moderate swearing. The bed rock was but slightly injured. Doc. Martin pre scribed for me. I didn’t learn who the bed-rock called in. Jacinto. Educated Labor.— Gen. Bidwell, as chair man of the Committee of Agriculture, closed a speech in the House of Representatives, on ■ proposition to amend the Agricultural College bill, with the following well-timed remarks : “ Agriculture must, to be successful for all time, be in the bands of free and intelligent labor. There must be no mudsills, because agriculture will not thrive in the mud ; and yet the mud contains within itself all the elements of fertility. Drain it, cultivate it, and bring forth its latent powers, and the reward will be fruits, floweis, and golden grain to gladden the earth and supply the wants of the laborer.— And the illustration may not be inapplicable to the laboring classes whom slavery, with haugh ty pride, denominated as “the mudsills of soci ety.” Cultivate these classes, and train them in the way to intelligence, usefulness and honor, and the choicest fruits of thjt 7 human intellect and the most gifted minds may crown the labors of the nation. Prom these classes may spring Presidents, statesmen, poets, orators and loyal heroes to perpetuate the blessings and the glory of this nation in peace, “for peace hath her vic tories no less renowned than war,” and defend the emblem of our national freedom against all enemies from within and from without. And I will embrace this occasion to say, Mr. Speaker, that when all citizens shall have an equal opportunity to become intelligent and un derstand the real issues that drenched this na tion in blood, and labor shall be duly respected, there will be no more traitors in the length and breadth of this glorious and happy country. Ever since the rebellion began no roan has felt more desirous than myself to see every vestige of slavery swept from the land. The war was the result of injustice to an unfortunate and downtrodden race. 1 have believed and still believe that our only safety for the future is to plant ourselves on the enduring rock of equal and exact justice—by that I mean equal protec tion and civil rights—to all citizens, the high, the low, the rich and the poor. Every line of distinction is purely arbitrary «"d despotic lB principle and in tendency, and wholly inconsis tent with the fonndamental principle of demo cratic republican government To me it seems that whatever may be denied the Slates recently in rebellion, they should not be denied the means of intelligence. Give them with boun teous band, and surround them with a flood of light to light their pathway to allegiance and good government.” Familt Quabkl.— The San Francisco Exam iner and Call are disputing as to which comes nearest the standard of reconstructed Democra cr set np by Jeff. Davis and Andy Johnson. It it about “nip and tuck” between them—the Ex aminer is tbe most venomous, but the Call is ths meanest.— Start and Slripta. Gotxbxob Bbowslow, of Tennessee, said in a recent address at Knoxville :—“ I announce to you that if Andy Johnson is to lead tbe way in reconstruction, with tbe Democratic party at its back, I go tbe other way. Igo with tbe Con gress of tbe United States, tbe so-called Radicals." Which is the merriest Sunday in tbe year ? Wit Sunday.
