The Burlington Uawkeye says: “If we correctly uiido.'stand tlie platform of the Greenback party of lowa, it promises au era of high wages, lots of employ ment, high prices for wheat for the tanners, cheap tlour tor the mechanic, high prices for cattle for the stock rais er, cheap beef for the workingman; lots of money, low interest, and good times for everybody but contractors, manu facturers, railroads and hankers, who ■ro to be very poor, and have no money to pay their hands.” —-■ Some days ago Gen. Bragg received a letter from Gen. LcDuc, commissioner of agriculture at I\ a-liington, inquiring kf there was any disease prevailing among the domestic animals of his (Bragg’s) congressional district. Gen. ! Bragg replied that the general health ofthe domestic animals of his district was remarkably good. “There are, how ever," added he, ‘ numerous lame ducks. Whose ailments can only be relieved by the federal government; but 1 cannot conscientiously recommend their treat ment. and must be excused from even designating them in particular.”— Mad*- '• sou Star. Brigham as a preacher. —Com- pare bis ordinary Sunday sermons for years with those of Henry Ward Beech er. Brigham Young did not possess the gift of language in its refined sense lise Mr. Beecher, but there runs through *ll of the former’s pulpit efforts a practical vein of counsel and advice, of criticism and encouragement, appealing to the wants and energies and desires of mankind, spiritual and temporal, in the ■gut of Which Mr. Btecher’s brilliant .booming, seem almost tame profidess A* a preacher of practiced righteousness Brigham 1 oung must :Vremost among the pulpit orators ol Che 's?- L.

Brigham's Beginning. —The late Brigham Young is mentioned by The Auburn Nows as “the distinguished husband.” and that satirical journal goes on to say: “At Port Byron, in this c ty, he painted boats. Afterward he orkedina saw-mill near Auburn, the ‘edge’ of the now tom ofThroop, •••■ ere he met his first wife, Angeline Works, whose two cousins. fi||rfpsnd Morris Worden, now resiSeT in the seventh ward of this city. The wedding took place at the tavern of Mr. Pine, in Port Byron, to whom Brigham owed a board bill of C ~ whan he went V, .• in 1830. and r-iieh he paid thirty five years later, with two drafts cn New York for 050 each. Brigham was a good-natured, rather ignorant and lazy genius, of whom the late William Hay den, of Port Byron, remarked that he did not know that he was good for any thing except to make axe-helves—which he did well.” The Fond du Lac Journal bids fare well to Tom Keid, of The Menasha Press, in the following pome: Th. re was a young man at Menasha. whenever he happened to pae yc, M mil uown hi? vig- O up at the .-kies, A? lie thought: “ionr ?ome creditor, dash ye!’’ In the war his big finger was shot off.

The Florence (S. C.) Times relates the following remarkable circumstance in relation to “frequent” births; Silia Mack, who gave birth to five children at a birth, on Mr. A. K. Gregg’s plantation, in August last, gave birth to twins on last Saturday—a boy and girl who arc living and doing well. The result of her labors for one year being 4 boys and 3 girls—7 in all. Dr. E Miller is our authority for ibis. It is no sensational hoax. It is a startling fact. We know of some who think 7 children in 21 years a large number. W c feel for them in the nervous shocks which the above may cause. Though the hard times since 1873 haye been of much longer duration than at any previous period, such absolute impecuniosity has never prevailed in the last four years as occured thirty-five years ago. Then Mr. Ticknor writes to ?ir Charles Lyell, under date Novem ber, 1843; “There has been great suffer mg in all our l "( a t e a j and j n 80 nic, like Indiana and Illinois, a proper currency has disappeared, and men have been re duced to barter in the common business of every-day life.

In small doses of one pill a day, they stimulate the digestive organs and promote vigorous health. Ayer’s Pills have been known for more than a quarter of a century, and have obtained a world-wide reputation for their virtues. They correct diseased action in the several assimilative organs of the body, and are so composed that obstruc tions within their range can rarely with stand or evade them. Mot only do they cure the every-day complaints of every body. but also formidable and dangerous diseases that have baffled the best of human skill. While they produce power ful effects, they are. at the same time, the safest and best physic for children. By their aperient action they gripe much less than tlie common purgatives, and never give pain when the bowels are not inflamed. They reach the vital fountains of the blood, and strengthen the system by freeing it from the elements of weakness. Adapted to all ages and conditions in all climates, containing neither calomel nor any deleterious drug, these Pills may be taken with safety by anybody. Their J sugar-coating preserves them ever fresh, and makes them pleasant to take; while being purely vegetable, no harm can arise from their use in any quantity. PREPARED EY Dr. j. C.

If wanted merely for a HAIR DRESSING, nothing else can be found so desir able.
