SO APOLOGY SEEMS REQUISITE for offer ing to the public an advertisement of this kind, for it is universally acknowledged that the treatment of those particular diseases consti tutes a branch «>f medicine which has NEVER been aiilliclently 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 »f the public to a WELL IN FORMED MEMBER of the medical profenlon, le gally qualified, and who devotes bis exclusive atten tion to diseases arising from the undue excitement "f the generative organs, together with those incidental stages of acute disorder which, when neglected, terminate in the horribly.wasting firm of rnnstitutinnnl ilii<org*niz«tion.— DOCTOR PERR Vn.T ha« paid the mo.t AXX HU S AND CXTIIiING 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 medium of the microscope, enables him to detect the presence of semen in the mine.

The Gettysburg Monument. —This monument, the contract for constructing which, as lias al ready been announced, has been awarded to its designer. Janies G. Batterson, is described as follows :—“ The monument is 23 feet square at the base and 55 feet in Light. At the angles of the base are four buttresses, each supporting a collossal statue in a silting posture. These statues are allegorical, and represent, respect ively, War, History, Peace and Plenty. War is represented by the figure of an American soJdier, who, resting from the conflict, relates to History' the story of the battle and the naiucs%i the honored dead, while History with her stylus and tablet writes down the imperishable record. The corresponding statues ,syuiboli/.c Peace and Plenty. Peace is represented by a mechanic with the implements of his trade about him. — Plenty is typified by a female figure with sheaf of wheat and ploughshare. Those last figures indicate the industry and activity which shall succeed the ravages of war, and the abundance aud prosperity which are the crowning results of the glorious victory here achieved. Upon the richly moulded cornice rests an oc tagonal plinth, bearing in basso relievo the coat of arms of Hie United States. On the shaft above and encircling it, are 18 stars in basso re lievo, representing the States which remained loyal throughout the fiery trial. The capital is finely moulded, and supports a three-quarter globe, upon which stands the colossal statue, 15 feet high, representing the genius of Liberty, clasping within her left arm the folds ol the American Hag, while in her raised right hand siic holds the victor’s wreath of laurels. The pedestal is to be made of fine white granite, and the statues of white American marble. The monument will stand upon the crown of the hill where the cemetery is located. Around it, in semi-circular slopes, will lie—the bodies being now buried—tiic honored dead, each man being separately coffined, and the men ot each State together in sections. The division between the States arc marked by alleys leading from the monument to the outer circle ; the cotiined rows are divided by continuous granite blocks about six inches in bight, upon which the. name of and regiment of eacli soldier, as tar as ascertained, is inscribed, as for his,proper headstone/’ Distinguished Arrival. —Among the passen gers by the Continental from Mazatlan, says the Alta California, was A. D. Jones, editor of the Imperial-Confederate organ, the Mazatlan Timer. Jones is said to be a Massachusetts man by birth —.was born under the Stars and Stripes, at any rate—but during the rebellion he labored like a horse in a tread-mill for the Southern Confedera cy, lauding Jeff. Davis and the chivalry to the skies, and dinging filth at the mudsills with his whole strength. Meantime, he “was born again,” we believe, his second birth-place being in tbe “ Sunny South," from whence he now hails.— Since tiic collapse of the Confederacy he has la bored with might and main for the “Empire,” of the ultimate success of which, until recently, he had no more doubts than lie hod of the tri umph of the Confederacy-, Ctcn. Corona has promised Jones a hemp cravat, if he ever gels within his clutches, and Jones’ visit is under stood to be for sanitary purposes. It is getting unhealthy for people of his stripe in that coun try, and will soon be more so. Like Nasby.—The President’s recent charge against Sumner, Stevens & Co., of instigating his assassination, reminds one of Mr. Nasby’s unfortunate blunder at Washington, as related bv himself : “ Coin' into WillSTd’s, I called for a"‘go ’uv gin, which the gentlemanly and ur bane bar-keeper sot afore me, and I drank.— ‘ Put it down with the rest uv mine,' sez I with an impressive wave uv the hand. ‘ Your name,' sez he. Assoomin a intellectual look, I retort ed, I Do you know Charles Sumner?’ Here I overdid it ; here vaultin ambition o'erlcaped it self. Had I sed Saulsbury, it might have .inser t'd, but to give Sumner s name for a drink uv gin waz a piece of lunacy for which I han't account. I was ignominionsly kicked into the street." All Hail Oregon. —Oregon is true to the Coun try, Constitution and Republican principles.— A dispatch dated Portland- Jane 251 h, says : Official returns from all the counties have been received, giving the following Union majorities : Mallory, for Congress, 554 ; Woods, for Gover nor, 3*2i. The balance of the State ticket is elected bv larger majorities than the Congress men received. The Legislature stands—Senate eight, and House five Union majority—giving the Union party thirteen majority on a joint ballot. Business Philosophy. —On one point P.T.Bar num, the great showman, is one of tbe most sen sible of men. Hear him : —“ I never patronize a business man that don’t advertise for tbe rea son that 1 invariably get cheated. The penuri ous principle that prevents a man from keeping his business before the people, will prevent him from selling cheap," and you can put him down Jaf a one-horse-fellow that has not the energy or ability to offer the proper inducements of trade. The latest dates from Montana announce that • the Vigilance Committee hung three horse thieves, June 10th, near Helena, and were in pursuit of others. The following bill was posted up all through the Territory ;— “Beware- The Vigilance Commi'tcc is in session. Beware o the careless use of firearms.

No tyrant's impious step is ours, No lust of power on nations rolled— Our flag for friends a starry sky, For foes a storm in every fold.

O thus we ll keep the nation's life, Nor fear the bolt by despots hurled ; The blood of all the world is here, And they who strike us strike the world ! Then, still rear high thine oak, O North ! O South, wave answer with thy palm! All in our Union’s heritage Together sing the nation’s psalm ! Love, Garter* and Sausage*. About one hundred years ago n young lady of Amsterdam, named Wilhelmina Tcrseheling, was riding on horseback through the village of Hox mecr, when her horse became frightened and ran away with her. The young man who ac companied her, and to whon she was betrothed, cried out that he would give a hundred ducats to anv* one who would stop the horse. The young villagers who were playing ball upon the green near by, seeing a woman in dan ger, threw themselves before the furious ani mal. One of them was thrown down and wounded ; two others received contusions ; the horse fell, and the beautiful Wilhelmina rolled into the dust. A young man, who was passing threw immdiately his cloak over the lady before any one else had time to perceive a.finely-turucd leg and a pretty garter. Mademoiselle Terscheling, on being carried home, had time to reflect ; and the result of her reflections was that there must never be two men in the world who had seen her garter. So she sent for her betrothed, and said : “ Will you kill the man who threw his cloak over me ? ” i; Who ? I! What an enormity 1 “ I thought you would refuse. Than I shall marry him. When my life was in danger you offered a hundred ducats to save me. This is the price set upon my hand. Here are twcuty fivc hundred. You have made a good bargain. - ’ She sent for the stranger. “ Monsieur,” said she, l: 1 am rich and young, and (she blushed prodigiously while adding one of those hypocritical paraphrases by which wo men speak of their beauty,) I am not considered repulsive. 1 wish to marry immediately. I see that you are surprised. I will he frank with you. 1 have sent to you because you have seen ray garter. You have rendered me a great service, Monsieur. Without you, all the young men of Boxmeer would have seen it, and as I could not have married them all I should have killed my self. Hut if your are not free, or lam not so happy as to please you, I shall give my hand and fortune to a man who will kill you. Do you ac cept ? Yes. or no?” •• Yes, a thousand times yes! A hundred thousand times yes ! ” The marriage took place, and was like other mnr ri:'ges. proh '.hlr—we have no particulars on the subject. All the young men of Boxmeer were invited to the nuptials, and sumptuously feasted. At her death, which took place in the course of time, the following codicil was found in her will ; “ My farm, situated on the borders of the Meuse, will remain forever, whoever may be the proprietor of it, subject to the following condi tions ; Every year, under penalty of forfeiture, on the thirteenth of May, tables will be prepar ed, and a tun of strong beer and twenty ells of the best sausages shall be served to the young men of Boxmeer, as a token ot gratitude that they did not see my garter oa / the 13th of May. ITCG.” Until the present time, that is, during a hund red years, the wishes of the testatrix have been punctiliously executed. But the present heir, on the 13th of last May, attempted to elude them. Under the pretext of conforming to the decimal system, be gave twenty meters of sau sages instead of twenty ells, to the detriment of the youth of Boxmeer. Xot to lose their fete, they devoured the twen ty meters under protest: hut they have brought a suit against the heir, and demand that the case be decided before the 13th of next May. How modest were our great grandmothers! How different were Mademoiselle Wilhelmina Terscheling’s ideas of honor from those of the young ladies of the present day. who wear lilting hoops and false calves, and expose their pretty garters to all young men who are hold enough to look ! The Political Contest is Missouri. —Missouri is exercised politically. In Price's rebel soldiers and Blair's Conservatives, the Radicals find an active opposition, and it is undetermined which will gain the ascendancy. If the Radicals are routed, the rebels will soon put aside their Con servative allies, and the old Democratic regime will be established.. The Radical Union State Convention lately issued a stirring address to the people, exhorting them to stand by Congress, and adding: Remember what is at stake. The battle is not over. The physical conflict for the time at least, is ended, but the moral conflict between loyally and disloyalty continues, and a victory here for the right is necessarv 0 P _ j n all that has been won in the conflict ofarm ,•« Missouri we know what is of t i )e rule gle, because we which make of both parties.

They have given us a future which, if we are true to ourselves, cannot fail of realizing our brightest hopes What these parties have done in the past is the best evidence of what they will do in the future. Between such parties and their policies the choice is to he made. NUMBER 26. [From the Wa*hiii(rton /« trlligrnerr.'] Tlie Trial of Jell'. Davis—Summary of the Points Involved* The recent references to the trial of Jeff Dawis have called public attention to this subject, which very naturally, in a large degree, interests the public mind. The indictment in the usual form for treason has been found by the Grand Jury, in the United States Circuit Court at Norfolk. Davis is indicted under the Act of 1790, under which the penalty, on conviction, is death. He could have been indicted under the Act of July 31, 1861, for a seditious conspiracy, the punish ment of which is a fine, not over 55,000, and imprisonment, with or without hard labor, not over six years. # One of the most important points is the draw ing of the petit jury, who arc charged *with the trial of the prisoner. The jury is to be drawn according to lot, or otherwise, according to the mode practiced in the State for selecting juries for the highest courts of law. The number of jurors to be summoned is left to thediscretionof the Court, as at common law. The Act July IG, 1862, repeals so much of the Act of liß9 as requires, in cases punishable with death, that twelve petit jurors be summoned from the county where the offence was committed. Under the Act of June 16, 1862. no person is allowed to sit on the jury who was in any degree of complicity with the rebellion. This is an Act of controlling importance, because it insures that the trial shall be before a loyal jury. Davis, cannot be tried by any of his confed erates. His fate will rest entirely with bis po litical opponents. The jury must be unanimous, or there can be no verdict. This is the invaria ble rule of common law, and has existed time whereof the memory of man runneth not the contrary. The presiding Judge can rule author itatively on questions of evidence as they may i arise in the progress o4’ the trial, but as the jury I always, in criminal cases, return a verdict of | guilty or not guilty, they are practically the i judges of the law as well ns the fact, and there ! is no appeal from their decision. There has * never been any exception to this principle in the common law, except that in cases of libel it had ' frequently been determined by the Court ol 1 King’s Bench, that the only question for the con j sideration of the jury, in criminal prosecutions i for libel, was the fact of publication and the i truth of the inneundocs, and the Court alone was i competent to determine whether the subject of i the publication was or was not a libel. And it was for this ruling of Lord Mansfield that the 1 celebrated Junius so bitterly attacked Lord Mans- I field. Lord Camden, the friend of liberty, differ ■ od from Lord Mansfield, ana the matter wasfinal- I ly puttorestby the memorable Act of Parliament lof 32 George Ilf., known as Mr. Fox’s Act. which determined the law against Lord Mansfield's judgment, by expressly recognizing the right of the jury to determine the facts and law of the case by a general verdict of guilty or not guilty. The trial can only end in one of three ways : 1. By verdict of guilty. 2. By verdict of not guilty. 3. By the inability of the jury to agree. In the event of this third alternative arising the first question which will arise is, whether Davis will be entitled to hail. The Constitution provides that “in all criminal prosecutions the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial.” In determining whether Davis, after more than a year’s close impri-onment, would be considered, in the event of the disagree ment of the jury, to lie discharged on bail would be a question of legal discretion, to be determin ed by the Judge. By the celebrated Habeas Cor pus Act of 31 Charles 11., it was provided, 6 : “ That every person committed for treason or felony shall, if he require if, the first week of the next term, or the day of the next session of Cycr and Terminer, he indicted in that term or session, or else admitted to hail, unless the King’s witnesses cannot be produced ; and if not indict ed and tried in the second term or session, he shall be discharged from his imprisonment for such imputed offence.” It is not likely our Judges would take a less favorable view of the prisoner’s application then in the rule furnished by this statute. The serious question would be how mmy of the Court have passed since the prisoner was first arrested? His counsel would in all prohility contend that by intend ment of law United Slates Courts were holding their regular terms for the last twelve mouths in the Slate of Virginia, or at least might have done so. A further provision of the Constitution might perhaps also, in the event of a disagreement of the jury, be invoked in behalf of the prisoner— that one which sets forth as follows : 44 Nor sh ill I anv person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of bis life or limb, Ihe ; meaning of this rule is, that a defendant is in ' legal jeopardy the moment a petit jury is charg jed with the decision of his case. But, though there has been some difference ot opinion on the point, it may be assumed that when the jury are discharged from the further and final decision of his case, because of their inability to agree, the i prisoner may be held to be tried anew. At one time in England, where the jury could not agree on a capital case, the Judge, instead of discharg ing them at the end of the term, had them carted round the circuit with him. Ibis practice, how ever, is exploded. In case, then of the inability of the jury to agree, the utmost that the prisoner could ask. from that fact alone, would be the right to be out of prison on bail. «Mo*> iTav -vM.-.: Pliili-tia. triumph Ihou because of me Semblins was making his regular half day in church Original First Presbyterian, and no church. u k heade d preacher was run ,he boundaries and renewing notice— n “aching what they call a doctrinal sermon.
