Chronicle of Oct. 8. tells the following story of tho ndventurcs of a eent Ionian, for rly a resident of that city. At the time of the gold discoveries In California he was in a comforta' le posi tion, and engaged in business In Pitts burgh. The reports of the immense fortunes which were made almost in stantaneously had thcireflect ui on him, and he severed his bushiest! connections and starlc.. for California, full of conn denco in the success of his proposed cflbrts to acquire a fortune and spend tho remainder of Lis lile with his lamt lv. which consisted of his wife and one daueliter. Belnjr of steady habits, and possessed of great energy, success smil ed upon him from the Hist, and every enterprise upon which he embarked re sulted favorably. He wrote often and tenderlvto his wife, an after and (.bscnee of over three ve irs expressed bis de termination to return home. New irold fields were discovered, however, and be resolved to visit them before returning to the States. This project was carried into effect, and he found in the new lo cality an excellent chance for invest ment. From this poh.t the mail facili ties were not good, and during the time he reinaine 1 he failed to receive any '.idirgj from home. A fur nearly a year had elapsed he returned to his former place of residence, and found a letterthcre announcing the death of both his wife and ...auditor. This intelligence ati'ected him greatly, he determined to return to the city by the next steamer. The letter conveying this sad intelligence was written by a comparative stranger and upon further . leflectlon the gentleman decided towrite home and ascertain, if possible, the truth of the report. Several letters were sent, Lut no answers were receiv ed, and after repeated trials to hoar from his friends, ho concluded that they were dead, and consequently ceased to writ?. His own family and a brother were the only near relatives lie had left behind h.m, and as he thought, lie de termined to settle in California. When the Australian gold discoveiies M-eie announced, t lie spirit of adven ture again seized him, ami tho success with which be met in California en couraged him in the belief that ho could not fail in Australia. He accordingly closed up his business, made permanent investments with his money and started for Australia There success attended him, ond in several years lie had almost doubled his previous fortune. JJecom- insr tired of active business life, howcv er, he resolved to return to California, and settle down, and this determination was carried into ollect. bhortly after ar riving in California lie invested largely In real estate, and after nearly llfteen years of active life he quietly settled down to c.ijoy the fruits of his labor. Ills quiet, however, was of short dura tion. The Southern rebellion broke out, and he, actuated bymotives of patriotism as well as love of adventure, assumed command of a company of volunteers raised in the city in which he resided, and for a long time stationed in various parts of Texas. "When the war closed he again leturned to California, and throw ing asido the accoutrements of war, re sumed bis peaceful life. Thus he lived until u few months since, when ho met with an incident which wrought a complete change in all the plans he had laid for the tuturc. While passing along one of the streets of his adopted city, lie et a gentleman from Pittsburgh, whom, despite the long period of years intcrvonincr, he immediately recognized, and of course lie was not long in making htmselt known. The new found acquaintance had known ti-o familv ol the gentle man, and for the llrst time in many years the latter lLteued to tidings from home. He learned that his wife, and daughter were not dead, that his broth er yet lived, and that he himself had been tnven up for dead many years since. The new acquaintance could not tell nun where ins wue ana daughter then resided, but he assured him thut they still lived. The intelligence thus received chang' edall his plans, and heat ence resolved to return to his own home, lie reached Pittsburgh a few days since, afteran ab sence of liO years, during 15 of which he had no communication with persons residinc here. Of course he found that time had made great changes. Many cf those for whom ho inquired had passed away, many had removed, and others had been forgotten, liis principal in quirles were in regard to his wife and daughter ; and while he was assured t'int. they still lived, the ro naindor of tho information was not so pleasant. Tho wife had mourned him as dead, and after waitimr for flvo or six years, ehe again married and removed witli her husband and daughter to Texas, whore thev still resided. The second huaband had entered tho re'inl nrmv. and either been killed or died iu service, leaving tho wife a widow for th.s second time, as sue inougm. She had resided In a town in Texas du ring the same time that her Uret husr band was stationed there.

Vermont Daily Transcript. ' AL15AXS, VT. Kjmday, Novhmhku 'JO, 18iiS. Chester County Sirhit: Next to the cow, the animal in which most people are directly interested, is the hog. As flesh or " fat" the hog af fords to a very great majority of the American people some part of every meal. And vet it may well bos-iid that of all domestic animals the hog has been least improved upon among the generali ty of farmers . Among the farmers ol ourown section, this is peculiarly true, and the best proof we have of it is the activity with which they gobble up a drove of "Canada land sharks.' We have seen men who wish to be ranked among the few best farmers, go several miles ftir-lior in lmv twnnr three vountr niirs bred from the.o " land sharks" rather than pav the extra half dollar or dollai asked for the pogny of really fin and apparently well bred sows. Many of these animals uutke large hogs of good ligure which as fattened hogs may not be objectionable but primarily as hogs to bo fattened, they are as a rule not de sirable, on account of the amount of food required to bring them into condition A few individuals, however, are be ginning to turn their attention to the subject and we hope ere long to see a de cided improve n?.-.t in tlii3 respect. Our own experience, though quite limi ted, warrants the assertion that the net profit of fattening a hog depends more uvjon the selection cf the pig than every thing else. The first thing to be con sidered in the choice of a hog for feed ingisthe figure with reference to the production of the more valuable pieces, as for instance ham, shoulder, and loin, rather than head and neclt. Another and none the less important object to be sought is to get the animal that from any given quantity of feed will produce the most weight of pork. This a more difficult task than theotlier, as the most practiced eye is sometimes deceived in this respect and it is sometimes tho case that an animal so readily lays on fat that the production of land is more than a compensation for a defective ligure. We have known two pigs from the same litter that at four wcel.s old were so nearly alike in every respect that a pur chaser would not have given live cents for the choice, but which on growing up were as unlike as can well be conceived They were kept in pens side by side, and although one became much larger than the other, the amount of food con sumcd by bun was very much more for each pound of pork and lard pro duced. After various and several expe riments wo have arrived at the conclu sion that lor our own use, py lar tne most profitable swine arc tho pure bred Chester County. But there is a very great did'eroneo in them, resulting from judicious or injudicious selection, goo or ill keeping. &c. &c. Of all domestic animals there is none that pays better for good care or degenerates more rapid ly under neglect, than well brd swine One Chester County piir that we procur ed from Thomas Baker, E.q., of Barton last spring has given us at least 1270 per cent more pork and lard for one led than any native we have ever fed and at the time we slaughtered him lie was doing as finely as any hog we ever saw, He would have pal J a farmer for several months feeding, We recently visited the estiblishment of James S. Muroe, at Loxington.Mass who is believed to be the mostoxtensive an i most successful breeder of swine in New England. Ho is a manufact jrer, and knows the laws of cause and effect, and of profit and lo.s, and doo3 not do anv business without a fair show for profit. Ho had a farm of 33 acres of re claimed peat meadow, that most Ver mont farmers would have called " rich enough," but bethought otherw.se,and, deeming it tho wiser course to make his own rather than buy commercial man ures, he determined on keeping a large number of hogs. Ho saw at a glance that growing hogs arc not tho most profitable manure mauers, nud fatten- w - r - ing hogs aro too lazy to work, and deoid ed to make brooding h's specific busi- ncss. Before beginning, however, he made a series of experiments to deter mine which breed would return tho best results for any eriven amount of feed, reasoning very justly thatitwasas necessary for him to give the purchaser an equivalout as togpt one himself if his business was to be parmaneiit. There- suit was that ho adopted tho Chester County as tho breed for the country,antl he hits been brcedinir them for several years. At the time of our visit, he bad In pen 21 large, old, well-fed, breeding sows. He Miys that the Chester County is not so well established as a breed that la every bow can be depended upon as a good breeder, hut there Is yet occasion for constant vigilance in selection of breeding animals of both sexes. Ho continues experimenting with oilier breeds as they are brought Into notice, hut docs not yet see occasion for any change. He feeds his whole stock on city garb age which he thoroughly cooks over af ter getting It home. He Is a good feeder, what most Vermont farmers would call a iiiirii feeder, and bis experience is a standing reputation of the theory that half-fed sows are better for breeding 1,u1lI1;1; nt into the busln -ss, -is we have before said, for the purpose of making manure, only hoping to save expense, but lie lln-lsthe business very profitable, netting about $2,000 per annum from his sale of pigs. He sells all lie can raise, as soon as they take from the sows. arc old enough to The following description of tills breed by Paschall Morris, jr., Philadelphia, may be of interest. lie says: " The most approved and desirable points ol the White Chester breed ol swine are the length and depth of carcass, breadth of back, small bone, very small head in comparison with the size of carcass, full ham, shoulders full and well pushed toward the head, leaving little or no neck, heavy jowl, dished face, thin skin, straight hair and straight back." He further says, it is'a made-up breed, between an imported Bedfordshire boar and the iiative stock of Chester County, produced by more than 40 years ofcarc ful breeding, and adds : "The hog is of ten the poor man's main reliance, every -f iF if l-ft-l-irc L"l.u-.l'fillr f t ncin and if his weight at a given age can be doubled on the same amount of food, a vast benefit will be conferred on the economic interests of the masses, and a large addition to the aggiegate wealth of the country." A Faryvry llrantletl. Mr. Colfax writes a letter to tlie New York Tribune totally.disavowing'.the au thorship of a speech against foreigners said to have been delivered by him in 1S54 or 1835, and quoted very extensive ly by tlie Democratic party during the recent campaign. He says that tlie statement "is in every word am ble, u forncry : that I never uttered such scnlimcnta in 1854 nor in any oth er year, and that the vulgar and scur rilous language embodied in it never fell f i om my lips, nor were written by my pen, in that or any other connec tion, on that or any other theme. Mr. Colfax thus concludes his letter Precisely this same speech was printed by the Democratic papers in thisS'ate a number of'years ago, and then attribu ted to Mr. Wilson, who was a Kepubli ean candidate lor Congress: but, hav ing been thus used with campaign, it was revamped in the re cent canvass, witli my name attached to it, by the same Koitors, every one ol whom knew that it was impossible for metousesuehyilelanguagcinaspeeeh on any subject.

Hundreds suffer on in silence, and hundreds of others ap ply vainly to druggists nnd doctors, who either merely tantalise them with tho hope of a euro or applv remedies which inaho them worse. I would not wish to assert anything that would do i jus-1 tlce to tlie allllcted, but I um obliged to say that ' although it may be produced from excessive ex-1 haustion of tho powers of life, by laborious em ployment, unwholesome air .nut food, profuo I menstruation, the use of tea atid coffee, and fre- I nnrnt childbirth, it is fur oftener caused by dU leet irritation, applied to the mucous membrane of the vagina itself. When rcviewinc the causes of these dlsties-, sing complaints, it is most painful to rontem- . plate the attendant ovils consequent upon them. It is but simple justlco to tho subject to ennm-' orate a few or tho mauv.additioual causes which I so largely affect tho lite, health, and happiness of woman in all classes of society, and which, I consequently, ailect more or less direciiy, tiio welfare of tho entire human family. The mania that exists for precocious education and mar riage, causes tho years that nature designed for corporeal development to bo wasted and per verted ir. tho restraints of dress, the early eon Ihiement of school, and especially in the un healthy excitement of tlie ball-room. Thus, witli the body half-clothed, and the mind unduly excited b pleasure, perverting iu midnight revel the hours designed by nature for sleep and rest, tho work of destruction is half accom plished. Iu consequence of thij early strain upon her system, unnecessaiy effort is required by the delicate votary to retain her situation in school at a later day, tons aggravating the evil. When one excitement is over, another in prospective keeps tho mind morbidly sensitive to impression, wiiile tlie now constant restraint ol luslnunauic dross, absolutely forbidding tho exercise indis pensable to tne annulment ami rolontion ol or ganic health and strength ; tho exposure to night air; tlie sudden change of temperature ; the complete prostration produced by oxcossho daucing, must, of necessity, produce" their legi timate ollect. At last, an early marriuue caps tho climax of misery, and the unfortunate one, hitherto so utterly regardless of the plain dic tates and lemonstrauccs of her delicate nature, becomes an unwilling subject of medical treat ment. This is but a truthful picture of the ex perience of thousands of our young women. Long beforo the ability to exercise tho func tions of the generative urgans, they require an education of their peculiar nervous system, com posed of what is called tho tissue, which is, iu common with the female breast and hps, evid eutly under tlie control of mental enotions and associations at an cany period ot nto ; and, as we shall subsequently see, these emotions, when excessive lean, long ueioro puucniy. to nanus wlucli napthe very lile ot tlieir victims ere na ture has self-completed their development.
