AstheEeaconliight Is to the mariner on the storroy coast eo is LAWSON'S to the distressed and suffering subject of Rheumatism or Neuralgia ! We cr.not be too grateful for the discovery cf any remedy which will alleviate the suf ferings of humanity, not only in the pangs of pain which the patient alone suffers, but in the distress which it entaiU upon others. Mot every sufferer from his own personal experience is aware that the ordinary methods of treating Rheumatism, Neuralgia, Sciatica and kindred diseases by internal medicine, is of no avail, and so fast is this impression gaining hold upon intelligent patients that they demand a more potent remedy. The discovery of Lawsox's Curative was a priceless boon to thousands who have been cured, and the thousands who are now being relieved of their terrible agonies bear willing testimony to its virtues. Here we have a Curative agent whica though applied externally exerts a powerful and benef.cent influence on the whole nerve system a remedy of indisputable efficacy seldom failing to afford prompt relief in cases of acute or chronic pains in the r.c-rve3 or muscles. For every kind of Rheumatism, for Neuralgia in every Form, for nervous or Sick Headache, for Nervousness, for Lame Back or Side, for Erysipelas, for Diphtheria and Sore Throat, for Chil blains, for Sprains Bruises, Cuts, Wounds, for Burns and Scalds, for Toothache In fact for all Pains, Inflammations and Swellings no remedy is known which pos sesses the remarkable healing and soothing qualities, which is so universal in its charac ter and scope or so simple and safe in its application. For these reasons Lawsox's Curative should have a place in every family. It will there prove its value in in numerable cases to prevent lingering diseases and should be kept at hand ready for instant use. Sold by all Drngplrts. PRiCE, One Dollar per Bottle.

The following biographical sketches will serve to show oar readers what manner of meai tbe nominees on the Republican State Ticket are. Every one of them are men of sterling integrity, unflinching honor, large experience and well-known capability. The iodependeat Evening News says that oar ticket is one " that every independent voter should cat out, paste in his hat,'' and, when election day srriver, vote it. This is good testimony as to the worth of the nominees, coming as it does from a Bome wbat unfriendly sourte. It is a tribute well merited. GOVBBXOB CHaBLZB X. CKOflWEIX, yesterday nominated by tbe Republicans for a second term, was born on October 13, 1826, at Newbi"-g, New York, and is, therefore, 53 yerrs tof age.

Harry Croewell, during Jefferson's administration, was prosecuted for libe' ng the l'resident in h'S newspaper, and was defend:! by Alexander Hampton.

He has besides held various honorable rid compi:men?ary positions. He has for many years been tbe secretary of tbe Adr.an Board of Education. Governor Croswe" is a widower. In Febru ary, 1852, be married Lacy M. Eddy, of Adrian, who died in March, 1868, leaving three children, two daughters and a son. Governor Croswell, while not a member of any denomination, is religiously inclined. He was brouxht up a Methodist, but followed his wife to tbe Presby terian Church. At tbe last election, two years sgo, Gove: uor Crowell received 165.926 fvotes, being elected- Governor over Wm. M. Webber, Democrat, by 23.000 majority. LIECTIKA5T-G0VKIX0B ALOKZO A. 8ES8I05S. yeeterday put in nomination for a second term, was born in Onondaga conty, New Yorw, August 1, 1810, and is consequently 63 years old.- Tie is a self-made man, having chiefly edacated braue1'.

Tbe Graenbackers are in tbe habit of assert ing very loudly that the amount of currency in emulation dr Ing " war times ' was something ".-e $1,200,000,000, maVJng the per capita cir culation about fifty doM v. Tbey make tbete assertions as facts, and then ge to demonstrate that the panic of 1873, and the subsequent "hard times," were caused by the tremendous contraction of tbe cr'rency. Many honest men are staggered by these statements, and lo ng rnable to disprove tbe allegations as to tbe AMOUNT OF CCEBEXCI IK CIECCLUIOM in war f nts," rinnot meet tbe deductions of tbe Greenbackcre from the asserted facts. Tbe fa;t is that the asge;ion of tbe c'-cration be ing 1.200 r'P'ons :n any year since I860, is just as vntrue as it would be to say that tbe rrculation to-day is 1,500 mf "ions. TEE WAT TBI GBSCXEACETB8 C0C5T CP 1.200 xc'irona of currency in ' war t-med,"' is to add tbe aggregate of the paper money then in circulation, tbe amount of the temporary loan certificates, the 5 per cent, legal tenders or one and two years notes of 1363, and tbe compound interest notes. Now, as to these varied forms of indebtedness, tbe temporary certificates were not legal tender; the five per cent, were legal tender to a certa;n amount ; the compound interest notes were legal tender for their face value, excluding interest; and tbe 7.30 coteB were not legal tender, and tbe lowest denomi nation was fifty dollars. All these different obl:gatiorq WEBE IitTXBEBT BEABI50, and that fact alone was sufficient to keep them out of circulation alongside of con-intereBt bearing, -redeemable paper money notes. Some of them, no doubt, did perform some of the fanctions of currency, just as 4, i)i or 5 per cent. V onds to-day. It is safe to say that not one Greenbackcr in a thousand ever saw in rrculation one of tbe different forms of government obl'gatione re f errt 1 to, and which are included in greenback estimates of the paper circulation in "war times." Greenbackere, in estimating tbe paper money circulation of to-day, carefuPy omit all the interest -bearing obligations now outstanding, but if this class of obl'gations CAWSOr FAIBLT EE COCNTED aspa. of the present paper mcr'ation, why sbov'd they not also be onrtted in estimating tbo paper circulation of 161 The facts are, that tbe largest p-pcr money circulation was attained in 1S71, iho year after tbe pa- c, when it amounted to t7S7.533.C00. wh'ch gave a per capita ci:culafioa of 19.1 1 . Tbe largest per capita r'rer'ation of money ia tnis country since 1811, was reached in 1S00. when It amounted to 119.95. People who believe in honest money, and oppose all plans looking to the expansive and ultimate repudiation of tbe irredeemable paper money of the government, should not allow them3lves to be influenced by tbe mere asser tions of windy demagogues, wbo either are ignorant of what they are talking, or altogether dishonest, and intentionally misrepresenting and falsifying.

Cormpondence cf the True Northerner. Washi5qto5, D. C June 22tb, 1878. Daring her testimony before tie . 1 'otter committee, Mrs. Agnes Jenks has shown sub lime heights of self-complacency, impudence and wit. She Las kept General Butler waltz ing three days out of a possible four, and tbo has conducted herse'.f like a shrewd and brilliant lawyer and be like a clumsy and em btrraveed witness. She snatched his qoe-ti lb out of hie mouth before tbey were fa;rJy utter ed, and returctd them to bin like o many boomerangs, always bringing a peal of laa.bte-r as the boxed the red ears of tbe "August Com mittee.' This country has never before wit nessed Jaet such a spectacle. Mrs. Jenka told just exactly wtiat the pleased, and no more that the -dictated"' tbe "John Sherman"' 1-tki ; that it pacified Andereon ; that Andereot, whom Saturday the described as "amatjifi--cient and eutlime scoundrel,'' was "good enough don't you say anything agiinst 1uip;" that tbe would not tell who wrote what she 'dictated;" the would lose her band fret, f be baa exhibited a nonchalance and readinews very seldom exhibited on the witne-sa stand, anj suc ceeded in blueing and bantering L'atlei t.il i.i head swam. And it ;'s oil that thin ftiuale type of the American politician of ;hewtit eort, to agile, so luapudtnt, to cross, vo un scrupulous, so alert aud expert, eo cunui;g in evasion and severe in tepartee. quick b a streak of lightning and with unlimited "cheek' and "lip,'' is not an American at all, fcnt an Englishwoman, born in Glasgow about -u pood many years ago. Ic may be said of all the oral evideLce taken as yet in the Louisiana investigation that ilia untrustworthy. Andtreon was not creditlc.oo oath; neither is "Captain" Jenks nor b. in teresting wife, Mrs. Agnes D. Jei;ks. Neither will tbe estimable Kellogg be when be cornea to be examined, nor Packard, nor Ficchback, nor any of them. Nobody of any party wriouely be!ieve9 or baa believed or would believe a word they Bay. When Jenks contradicts Auder son, but admits that he has lODg been tw intimate friecd.it nskes one laugh. Ar.deo when Mr. Jenks ears ete wrote the so-called Sherrain letter, there 13 still as much doult m ever whether any such letter id or wa ever m existence. No rational person spends a minute try.ng to reccneye their fctorles. If they bad produced no documents, the time eptct on them would have been whol'y wasted. What tbe inveetigatlorj is doing is not fa&fenh.t; f uilt on any person not hitherto suspected, er re vealing any fiaw :n tLe Pretident s title, bnt letting the world know what nnd of jccplo they were who tad charge of the State govern ment and worked the political machine from 18C8 to last year. To say that tber matters and morals, and tbe stories they tell ot each other, read like a chapter of jail-yard p ttip and that every one of them ought to Lo in tLe pem'entiary, is patting :te case mildly, it is no exaggeration to say ttat it was an awful thing to Lave left the government cf auvil ized community in inch bands to loop, nnd lamentable and alarming that tbe KcumpB should have been aUe to palm themselves off so lODg on good people of our country aei-uffer-:ng friends of tie Llack man. A Etatement tLat Geser Butler in tugo home in about two weeks, "tolcok after bus political ntereste,"' has set some of tbo north ern par ers to disccesing what Li? political in terests are, in view cf Lis recent perfotmaLcea in Congress and in the Totter ccmmittee. It may be safely averted that they ire tbo inter ests of Bee. Cutler first, last, and all the t.me. It is boped that President IlayiB i;l cot permit another occa?ica of publicly rewaidittg the testifying Andersor. One cf the duties most grateful to tbe mind cf tut Chef Magistrate should be the selection of citizens most promently known for civic virtues and for high moral worth, for the purpose of dei fying them with suitable positions in the public service, and as a proper stlmcler.t to Presidential aspirations in the minds cf Young America. Unlike the late lamented George, the present distirguiehei occupant cf the White House has not spent bis precious Lours in the ignoble persecution cf tbe cherry tree bv means of the keen and aggressive batcbet, but has devoted bimeelf exc!usively to the onerous duties of tie lofty tfc. I doobt cot therefoie, that tbe need cf stmrle joetice will not long be witbeld from tbe distinguished gentleman referred to, and that as soon as Mr. Anderson is released from the guileful role of Potter, some fitting ilace cf tenor may be found, which Le may be gently urged to till and ornament.
