Treasure Beneath the Sea. ,
The English Western Morning Xev$
says: , -
Upwartl of eighty ye&rs ago, in the
winter of 1774,a vessel bouni from Spain
wp.8 totally lost, with Iter entire ci-ew,
being driven, in a stormy night, on the
rocks at Gunwalloe, in Mount's Bay.
The vessel was known to have an im
mense quantity of specie on board in
Spanish pillar dollars, and ever since,
after violent gales, dollars have been
picked up in the neighborhood of he
wreck. Two or three companies l&ve
been formed for recovering the bulk of
the silver, which is known to lie depos
ited within a very circumscribed area ;
but the undertakings were not vigorous
ly pursued, and after a time was aban
doned. One of these parties, however,
many years since, attempted to recover
the treasure by means of sinking a shaft
in the rock in-shorc, and driving an adit
from its bottom seaward, to get under
the spot where it was supposed the hnH
of the vessel lay imbedded in sand,
shingle, &c, but this was abandoned
without result Lately a company has
been formed, and they have decided oa
making another attempt.-: They have
communicated with the Admiralty, and
received formal permission to prosecate
the work, and this summer they hope t
secure the long-coveted silver. :, 114
Jonn Toy went last week with two raea
to the place, which ever since the wrack
has borne the name ot Dollar Cove, and
the tide being low, they proceeded ta
clear np the month of the old shaft. It
was filled in to a depth et about six fee
with large bowlders and shingles, aad
they had not worked long before they
had picked up eight dollars. Two or
three were brightly scoured by thesaad,
while others have sand so firmly attach
ed to theui that it would be difficult to
separate the coins from it Some bear
the dates cf 1782 and 1783,' and others
are older, wliile the dates on some are
quite illegible. The presumption is,
that this winter these have all been
thrown tip, with probably thousands of
others which did not find their wariatp
the little opening of the shaft.; White
Mr. Toy was . engaged in the clearing
operation, a boy wlib was picking, np
some dollars since Christmas was on th0
rocks and saw a dollar thrown up by a
wave, but before he could reach the rork
a receding wave washed it out again V
After heavy weather from the son th and
west dollars are often found on the beach
and rocks : very likely a box or package
which contained a portion Is disturbed,
and knocked to pieces, and its contents!
scattered about . The shaft is about firei
hnudred yards west of Gunwajoe charrlti
from which it is separated by, a rowan.
and lethre of rocks., Apart from the'
financial success of the speculation the,
progress of the new company will be
watched with interest . -

The Cholera and its Treatment.
The following letter from Kev. Cyrus
Hamlin, D. D., who has been for many
years a resident in Constantinople, as
missionary of the American Board, to
the Christian Mirror, gives the best
view of tho cholera and its treatment
that we have 6een. As the pestilence, if
It has not already reached our shores, is
"evidently making its way westward, it
is well for every one forewarned to be
forearmed against it
In a communication addressed to the
Mayor of Burlington, under date of No
vember 2d, Dr. Thayer, Surgeon Genera!
ei me estate says :
Cholera, in its westward course, is ran-
idly approaching this continent, and in a
few months more may be sweeping
over this country, more fatal and wide
spread than ever before.
Dear Sib : The cholera which has inst
ten ns, alter committing learrul ravages,
is making its way into Europe, and will
, . .... . f
rooaoiy cross tne Atlantic belore ano
ther summer has passed.
Having been provmcnually compelled
to have a good degree 01 practical ac-
acqnaintance with it, and to see it in all
its form and stages during each of its in
vasions of Constantinople, 1 wish to
make my friends in Maine some eugges-
gestions which may relieve anxiety, or
be of practical U6e.
1st On the approach of the cholera.
every family should be prepared to treat
it without waiting for a physician. It
does' its work so expeditiously, that
while-you are waiting for the doctor it
is done. .. r . ,r
2d. If you prepare for it, it will not
come. I think there is no disease which
may be avoided with so much certainty
as the cholera. Uut providential circum
stances, or the thoughtless indiscretion
of some member of a household, may in
vite tne attack, ana tne challenge will
never be refused. It will probably be
made in the night; your physician has
been called in another direction, and yon
must treat tke case yourself, or it will
prove fatal.
id. ijavses of attack. 1 have person-
ally investigated at least a hundred ca
ses, and not less than three-fourths could
be traced directly to improper diet or to
intoxicating drinks,' Or both united. Of
the remainder, suppressed perspiration
would comprise a large number. A
strong, healthy, temperate laboring man
had a severe attack 01 the cholera, ana
after the danger haa passed I was curi
ous to ascertain the cause. He had been
cautious and prudent in his diet. lie
used nothing intoxicating. His residence
was in a good locality. But after some
hours of hard labor and very profuse
perspiration, he laid down to take his
customary noon nap, right against an
open window through which a very re
freshing breeze was blowing. Ak-Jier
cause is drinking largely of cold water
when hot and thirsty. Great fatigue,
great anxiety, '. fright fear, all figure
among inciting causes. If one can avoid
all these he is. as safe from cholera as
from being swept away by a comet
4th. Symptom of attack, while chol
era is prevalent in a place, almost every
one experiences more or less disturbance
of digestlbn. It is doubtless in part ima
ginary. Every one notices the slightest
variation of feeling, and this gives an im
portance to mere trifles. There is often
a slight nausea, or transient pains, or
rambling sounds, when an attack follows.
No one Is estSa-cly.sreo rom tfcewi. jJnt
when a diairrhea commences, though
painless and slight, it is in reality the
skirmishing party of the advancing
column. . it will have at first 110 single
characteristic of the Asiatic cholera. But
do not be deceived. It is tke cholera
nevertheless. "Wait a little, give it time
to get hold, say to yourself, "I feel per
fectly well, it will pass off," and in a
short time you will repent of your folly
in vain. 1 have seen many a one com-,
mit suicide in this war.
Sometimes, though rarely, the attack 1
commences . with vomiting, uut in
whatever way it commences it is sure to
hold on. In a very few hours the patient
may sink into the collapse. The hands
and feet become cold and purplish, the
countenance, at first nervous and anx
ious, becomes gloomy and aptalieiic, al
though a nwnttl restlcness and raging
thirst torment the sufferer while the
powers of life are ebbing. The intellect
remains, bnt all all the social and moral
feelings seem wonderfully to collapse
with the physical powers. The patient
knows he is to die, but cares not a .snap
about it
In some cases, though rarely, the diar
rhea continues for a day or two, and the
foolish person keeps about, then sudden
ly 6inks, sends for a physician, and be
fore he arrives "dies as the fool dieth."
1st For stopping the incipient Diar
rhea. The mixture which I used in
1843 with great success, and again in
1855, has during this epidemic been
used by thousands, and although the at
tacks have been more sudden and vio
lent, it has fully established its reputa
tion for efficiency and perfect 6afety. It
consists' of eqnal parts by measure of 1.
Laudanum and spirits of camphor ; 2.
Tincture of rhubard-, 30 drops for an
adult, on a lamp , of sugar, will often
check the diarrhea.; But to prevent its
return, care should be taken to continue
the medicine every -four hours, in dimin
ishing doses, 25, 20, la, 10, 5, when care
ful diet is all that will be needed.
Ia case the first does not stop the diar
rhea, continue to give increasing doses,
35, 40, 45, 60, at every movement of the
bowels. Large doses will produce no
injury while the diarrhea lasts. When
that is checked, then is the time for cau
tion. - I have never seen a case of the
diarrhea taken in season which was not
thus controlled, but some cases of the
advanced diarrhea, and especially of re
lapse, paid no heed to it whatever.: As
soon as this becomes apparent, 1 nave ai-
wavs resorted -to this course. Prepare
teacup of fetarch, boiled as lor use in
starching linen, and stir in itafulltea
snoonfui of lauduum. for injection. Give
one-third at each movement of the bow
els. In one desperate case, abandoned
as hopeless by a physician, I could not
stop the diarrhea until the seventh injec
tion, which contained nearly a teaspoon
ful of laudcum. The patient recovered
and is in -perfect health. ' At the same
time I use prepared chalk in ten grain
doses, with a few drops of laudnum and
camphor to each. . Bat whatever course
is pursued must bo followed up, and the
diarrhea controlled, or the patient is lost
2d.; Mustard Poultices. These should
be applied to the pit of stomach, and
kept on till the surface is well reddened.
3.' The patient however well he may
fee), should rigidly observe perfect rest
To lie quietly on the back is oue-half the
battle. In that position the enemy fires
over you, bnt the moment yon rise you
are hit.- ...
When the attack comes in the form of
diarrhea, these directions will enable
every one to meet it successfully.
4th. But when the attack is more vio
lent, and there is 'vomiting oi vomitin
and purging, perhaps also cramps aad
colic, the following mixture is far more
effective and should always be resorted
to. The missionaries, - Messrs. Long,
Trowbridge and Washburn, have. sea
it in very many cases, and with wonder
ful tnccess : . it consists of equal parts
of laudannm, tincture of capsicum, tine
tuae of 'ringer, and tincture of cardamen
sood ' Ik5-c. 30 to drops,' or a hall
teaspoonful in a little water, and to be
increased according to the urgency of thfi
case. In case the first dose should be
ejected, the second, which should stand
ready, should be given immediately after
the spasm of vomiting has ceased. Du
ring this late cholera siege no one of vs
failed of controlling the vomiting and
also the purging, by at most the third
dose. We have, however, invariably
made use of large mustard poultices of
strong, pure mustard, applied to the
stomach, bowels, calves of the legs, feet,
etc., as the case seemed to require.
Collapse. Thi3 is simply a more ad
vanced stage of the disease. It Indicates
the gradual failing of all the power of
life. It is difficult to 6ay when a case
has become hopeless. At a certain poin t
the body of the patient begins to emit a
peculiar odor, which I call the death
odor, for when that becomes decided and
unmistakable, I have never known the
patient to recover. I have repeatedly
worked upon such cases for hours with
no permanent result But the blue color,
the cold extremeties, the deeply sunken
eye, the vanishing pulse are no signs that
the case is hopeless. Scores of such ca

When shall we Pay our Debt?
The burdens of taxation are hard on
the people and hard on industry. No
business man can pass a day without
groaning under them, and no man what
ever, except the rich, can live without
suffering severely from them. The com
plexity of the taxes, as well as their mag
nitude, troubles us alL There is hardly
anything that escapes taxes, and on near
ly the half of all things they are levied
twice or thrice, or half a dozen times,
under a variety of forms and upon the
most remarkable pretexts.
The patience with whicli the country
has borne them is now severely tried.
It has been sustained heretofore by con
siderations of necessity and of honor.
The people themselves we may almost
say as a body were the owners of the
Government securities, and consequent
ly interested in sustainhig the Govern
ment credit at the highest point ; and no
one conld fail to see that to effect this,
the revenues of the Government must be
large as well as steady. Our national
pride, too, has worked greatly in aid of
the Government in this matter. We are
bound to show an incredulous world
that our debt and credit had a broad and
solid basis ; that we could pay the high
est taxes in the world as well as wage
its greatest war; and that ctrr financial
honor should not be tarnished, as onr en
emies sneeringly asserted it certainly
would be. Then again, it was univer
sally felt that in settling the affairs and
closing the accounts of a great war the
Government was compelled to draw
from the people all that it eonld without
irreparably damaging public interests. 1
But now we are in the second year of
peace. . Onr Government, in all its de
partments is, or should be, on the perma
nent peace basiSw. Ou no hand, or in no
qnartcr, are exti-aordinary expenses call
ed' for. Our estimate of revenues for
this year should be 110' higher than that
for next year, or for the years of peace
which we trust are to follow; and our
burdens of taxation no weightier now
than then. We have the advantage of
definite estimates as to the amount that
will be needed, as well as the amount
that can be raised, and the sources that
will produce it ' We can say so much
for the array and navy ; so much for State
and Interior expenses. We can also say
so much from Customs and so much
from Internal'Revenue.' And, setting
the one against the other, we can say
so much surplus or so much deficiency.
The country, is now sufficiently settled
after the pertnbations of the war, and its
material interests are in a sufficiently
healthy working order, to enable us to
make such estimates witii as much accu
racy as it can be done in ordinary times
in the financial operations ot any nation.
And as the tax-payers are continually
making these estimates -or rather, as
Secretary McCulloch takes the trouble
to do it monthly for their enlightenment :
the pablic are continually kept informed
of the fact that the receipts cf tby Gov
ernment from taxation very greatly ex
ceed the actual necessities of the Gov
ernment, and that it is intended to ap
ply the surplus thus, raised to reduce tho
volume of the national debt In his Ute
speech on the Loan Bill, Senator Sher
man used these words : .
. "Daring the next year the estimated
etpenuttores of the Government' are sta
ted at 480,000,000. These estimates
have been reduced somewhat by the
bills ent to us by the House of Repre
sentatives, audit- k scarcely uot&iUo that
the expenditures dnring the next year
can reach $275,000,000 on the present ba
sis. We have a current revenue now of
nearly $500,000,000 during this year.
The amount of the gold receipts during
the first three-quarters of the year was
?140,000,000 and for this quarter will not
fall below $20,000,000. It Is supposed
that the internal revenue will yield du
ring the current year not less than $320,
000,000, so that, Including the profits re
alized on the sale of surplus gold wo have
an income of not less than $500,000,000
this year, and some authorities place it
higher. Tims it is evident that we have
$'200,000,000 more income this year than
we will have expenditures r.ext year."
There have been cxtracttd from the
country by the Govcrment during a
singlo year, two hundred million dollars
more than the Government required to
pay its way. This toe, during a year in
which the derangement of industry and
business of the currency has had the
most damaging, effect upon business
men, and laboring men, and all men and
all interests. I3 it judicious, under these
circumstances, to continue onr present
enormous rates of taxation? To take a
philosophical view of the matter as re
gards the past, we may think it well that
such revenues have been raised and such
taxation patiently 'borne. for. oneTesrf
It has shown what we can do and bear.
It has made us perfect through suffering.
It has established public confidence in
the Government credit and given thank
ful faith in our national honor. Aside
from these moral aspects of the case, it
has doubtless done vast and incalcula
ble damage to our material interests;
but the moral aspects in this case have
palpably overridden - all temporary" ma
terial, considerations. , Is it wise, how
ever, to continue to tax the people and
injure industry, merely for the purpose
of attempting at this time to pay off the
hnge debt contracted dnring the war?
We have no thought of permitting this
debt to become a permanent thing in our
governmental economy. v e have 110
idea of permitting the fact that it must
be paid to be lost sight of. We have no
notion of ceasing entirely in the labor of
reducing it But would it not be welL
after what we have borne and accom
plished in the late exhausting military
struggle, to ask of the country a little
less than to plnuge at once with its en
tire energies into an equally exhausting
and altogether necihess hnancial strug
gle?' Would it not bo well to give the
people and the public interests a period
ofrest,orat least to lighten somewhat
their burdens, when it is evidently fea
sible to do so ? It will tike but a limit
ed time for the country to regain its for
mer prosperity, and for our industrial
interests to reach a point of develop
ment far beyond anything in our past
experience. And the measure of taxa
tion that is not afflicting to endure, will
then seem bnt as a feather on the back
cf this broad shouldered people.
The Prosoects of Maxamilian.
- From the Pall Mall Cazstte, April .
According to Montaigne the strength
of a horse or of a ruler is shown in the
suddenness with which he can stop short
f aire un arest rond etnet). As regards
ruler it is a much greater strain upon
his courage and prestige to cut short an
impolitic course of action than to enter
on it abruptly to close, for instance, an
unsuccessful war, without the the color
of even a temporary succeess, than to
enter on hostilites from a state of peace.
Measured by this rule the Emperor
Napoleon is neither weak nor timid. If
we are to believe the reported results bf
Baron Saillard's mission, the Emperor
of the French has renounced his pro
tectorate of Mexico at the moment when
such a retreat had become most difficult
f Maximilian's arms had just achieved
some showy advantage, if some conspicu
ous opponent had been won over, if any
single province had ieenmaniiestiy ana
permanently civilized, or i lastly, the
United States had shown any sign of re
moving the ban under which they have
placed the new Emperor's conduct would

have been no taunts to encounter, per
haps no shame to hide.
But at a time when the pacification of
Mexico seems nearly as far off as ever
when a foreign mission and its escort
are attacked by rebel gucriilast within
a few miles of the capital when the
loan is spent, the treasury as ever, and
the able Minister. M. Langlais, who
miffht have done much to restore the
deficit, no more there can be no ques
tion about the character of the withdraw
al. The Emperor Napoleon abandons
his 3Iexican enterprise, not because Jits
work is done, but because he at last
despairs of doing it It must have cost
him much to confess in the face of his
subjects that they were right and he was
wrong, and to announce to 3Iaximilian
that he had been too rash in affording a
patronage when his. duty to his own
people might confpel him to withdraw.

unkind to the two Emperors. Firsts the
- A J
secession war wouiu come u an ena,
and then the Mexican Republicans would
neither fight nor yield ; and, lastly, the
United States would do nothing to re
lieve submission of its sting. Lndcr
these untoward circumstances what little
can be done to throw a dignity over the
retreat will be done. The French troops
will not be withdrawn at once, but as we
announced yesterday, in three " detach
ments in November of this year, and in
March and November, 1807.
On this last date the last French sol'
dier will psobably have quitted Mexico.
Of course the perpetual maintenance of
a French contingent never formed part
of the Imperial programme, although a
conjectnre may be pardoned, whether if
a French occupation had been pleasant
and possible, bnt unnecessary, it might
not have been prolonged, like that of
Kome, indefinitely. Still it wa3 distinct
ly intimated that the stay of the French
Annv would be determined onlyby
Maximilian's ability to do without it
by the "organization of tJie Mexican Ar
my." That organization, in the eenae in
whicb.it was understood and meant, is
as diitant as ever, and the French, nev
ertheless, is going. - Of course, Maximil
ian is not precluded from replacing the
departing French troops by Austrian or
Belgian subetitnJca. But the ivrt re
mains that France was tho declared pro
tector of Mexico, and that she now ac
knowledges she must retire from the
risks of the protectorate.
We have not the slighest wish to tri
umph over tho Emperor. The Ameri
cans may Le trusted to do that So far
as we arc concerned, the recollection of
our own desertion of Denmark is too
fresh to permit us to venture on imperti
nences which might be so effectually re
torted. Perhaps we may be permitwd
to point, out to the French critics, who
did not spare U3 upon that occasion, that
the English is not the only Government
which recognises that after all its su
preme duty is to its own tpeople, and
that "greatly to find quarrel in a straw"
is hardly admirable in an age when war
is so very expensive, and where the ex
pense falls on the elementary comforts
of the people- On the whole, we think
that in a distressing dilcmmn the Empe
ror has chosen well. He has preferred
prudence to bravado, and has rot been
afraid of seeming afraid. This shows
not only : a. confidence in Lis. own
strength, but a sagacity to make tho most
