So mild as to be safe and beneficial to children, and yet so searching as to effectually purge out the great corrup . tions of the blood, such as the scrof ulous and syphilitic contamination. Impurities or diseases that have lurked in the system for years soon yield to this powerful antidote, and disappear. Hence its wonderful cures, many of ; which are publicly known, of Scrofula, and all scrofulous diseases, Ulcers, Eruptions, and eruptive disorders of the skin, Tumors, Blotches, Boils, Pimples, Pustules, Sores, St. Anthony's Fire, Rose or Ery sipelas, Tetter, Salt Rheum, Scald Head, Itii)gtvorm, and in ternal Ulcerations of the Uterus, Stomach, and Liver. It also cures other complaints, to which it would not seem especially adapted, such as Drop sy, Dyspepsia, Fits, Neuralgia, Heart Disease, Female Weak ness, Debility, and Leucorrhoea, when they are manifestations of. the scrofulous poisons. It is an excellent restorer of health and strength in the Spring. By renew ing the appetite and vigor of the diges tive organs, it dissipates the depression and listless languor of the season. Even where no disorder appears, people feel better, and live longer, for cleansing the blood. The system moves on with renewed vigor and a new lease of life. PREPARED BT fr, J. c.

Hayes for his third term as Governor of Ohio, took place at Co lumbus on Monday, and was witness ed by a large assemblage of the peo ple, from all parts of the State. Several military companies, from Cleveland, Springfield and Fremont, and the 6th Ward Hayes Club, of Cleveland, marched in procession with the Columbus military. The day was so cold that the inaugura tion ceremonies were held in the ro tunda of the Capitol, instead of in the open air, as usual. Gov. Hayes was very handsomely introduced by Ex-Gov.Allen,and rea 1 his inaugural address, which 1s a brief, plain, business-like document, recommending to the Legislature economy and a short session two very well-timed sugges tions., The address will appear . in our next issue. Washington and Jacksoa, toward the close of their second terms, hav ing been spoken of for re-election, each took occasion, in his last mes sage previous to the election of a suc cessor, to declare an intention to re tire at the close of the second term. It will be observed that General Grant has omitted to do anything of the sort I Brown Co. News. Bro. Leeds, we fear, is either los ing his eyesight, or else ho must have read President Grant's late message very carelessly, not to have seen the following paragraph near its close: "As this will be the last message which I will have the honor of trans mitting to Congress, before my suc cessor is chose?), I will repeat or re capitulate the questions which I deem of vital importance, which should be legislated upon and settled at this ses sion." Is not that explicit enough to sat isfy any but a stubborn and unrea sonable partisan, that the President does not expect a third term? Espe cially, when taken in connection with bis letter of last summer, to Gen. White, of Pennsylvania, in which he declared he had no desire for a renomination? Why, then, do Democratic editors continue to "im agine a vain thing," and frighten themselves and their readers with this horrible "spook," conjured up by their own foolish fears? It is as cer tain as anything in the future can be that Gen. Grant will not only not be renominated, but that he will not be a candidate. He has too much good sense not to perceive that the over whelming sentiment of the American people is against electing any Presi dent for 'a third torm. THE CENTENNIAL. Interesting Facts Concerning the Great International the Great International Exposition--Its Origin— A Brief Description of the Buildings, Grounds, &c. &c. Mr. W. T. Lawson, a student in Wabash College,-at Crawfordsville, Ind., whose parents formerly lived in Marshall tp., in this county, spen his recent holiday vacation among his old acquaintances in that vicini ty, and during his visit was invitd to deliver an address at a School Ex hibition. He consented, and read a very interesting paper on the Cen tennial Exposition, the facts for which he obtained from Prof John L. Campbell, of Wabash College, who is the General Secretary of the U. S. Centennial Commission. ' In his address Mr. Lawson states that as long ago as 1866, Prof. Camp bell first made the suggestion through the press, "that the 100th anniversa ry of American Independence should be celebrated by an International Exhibition, at which the U. States should exhibit the progress of a cen tury, and compare results in the realms of Art, Science, Education, Invention, Manufactures, Agricul ture and Natural Resources, with the older nations of the earth." It is therefore claimed, and proba bly with truth, that to Prof. C. be longs the henor of first suggesting the idea of the Great Exposition, which is to celebrate so fitly the first centennial anniversary of our nation, and render the year 1876 memorable in our history. At the first meeting of the Centennial Commissioners, appointed by the various .. States, held in Philadelphia in 1872. Prof. C. was elected General Secretary of the Commission, which position he still hole's. From Mr. Lawson's address, above referred to, a copy of which he has kindly furnished us, we glean the following interesting particulars in regard to the great Exposition, which may be relied npon as accurate, and many of which will no doubt be new to the majority of our readers. .' The Centennial Buildings are lo cated in Fairmonnt Park, at the terminus of Girard Avenuo, Phila delphia, and adjoining the built-up portion, at a distance of 3 miles from the center of the city. The Park contains 3,000 acres, on which the city has already spent over $6,000, 000. The Schuylkill river flows through the Park, and empties into the Delaware, 5 miles below the city. There are 10 bridges across the river. The Park is diversified with the most charming scenery, of hills and vales, drives and walks, ornamented with statues, fountains, &c. The portion set apart for the Exposition is an elevated plateau, known as Lansdown Plateau, where ample space is afforded for the many struc tures now in process of erection. The following is a brief descrip tion of the Exposition buildings : 1. Main Duilding. Devoted to Manufactures, Mining, Metallurgy, Education and Science.- Length, 1876 feet width, 465 feet In the center, on each side, are projecting ells, each 416 feet long, and at each end an ell 216 feet long. The Build ing occupies an area of 21.47 acres. At each of the four corners is a tower, 75, feet high. From the cen ter of the building rise four towers, each 48 feet square, with spires 120 feet high. The building rests on a foundation of solid masonry, the su perstructure being supported by 672 wrought iron columns, placed 24 feet apart, which support the iron rafters and tin roof. The columns vary in length from 23 feet to 125 feet. Their aggregate weight is 2,200,- 000 lbs.; the weight of the rafters is 5,000,000 lbs. ; Through the center of the build ing there is an avenue 120 feet wide, and parallel to this are numerous aisles, 100 feet wide.

Here will be displayed all kinds of machinery in operation. "In this department," says Prof. Camp bell, "the inventive genious of Amer ica will probably be most prominent ly displayed. In the London, Paris and Vienna Expositions it will be re membered that America took many of the highest prizes for ingenious and useful machines, and our tri umphs can hardly be lcs3 in this friendly contest" In the center of Machinery Hall there will be a grand representative of the progress of Steam Power since the days of Watt, in the Bbape of a Corliss steam engine of 1100 horse-power, which will drive all the machinery in- this department Hvdraulic ijower will budpIt with water a tank 60 feet by 160, and 10 feet deep, at one end of which will be a" water-fall 35 feet high and 40 feet wide. .... . - -:. 3.

In addition to these five principal buildings, the Government of the TJ. States is now erecting a building for. the display of the various depart ments of the Government Congress has appropriated for the purpose $505,000, $100,000 of which will be spent on the building alone, and the remainder in -the exhibition, for which it is designed, theobject being to illustrate the functions and ad ministrative powers of the Govern ment in time of peace, and its re sources in time of war.- "There yet remains one building," (says Mr. Lawson) "deserving cur special attention. This structure, one acre in extent, was erected at a cost of $30,000, subscribed by the women of America. In this will be collected a vast variety of curious and interesting relics and handiwork, which belong distinctly to their ef forts, and for which they should have special distinction. - "Near Machinery Hall is a beauti ful lake of several acres, in which is placed a large fountain. "At the foot of an elevation called George's Hill, is an elaborate foun tain, erected by the Catholic Total Abstinence Union. "And lastly, upon the highest ground in the Park, has been erect ed an Observatory, 150 feet in height It is an ornamental column of iron, and visitors will be taken to the top on a spiral railway. "The demand for space is now so far beyond the capacity of all these enormous buildings, that England, Japan, Germany, Sweden, . Turkey and Morocco have erected other spe cial buildings for their own use. . "In addition to all these, a special building will be put up by nearly every State of the Union, bo that, ac cording to the last report made by Prof. Campbell, the whole number of buildings is likely to exceed two hun dred, covering more than 100 acres of the Park." . Over 3000 men are now constant ly employed in the construction of all these buildings and the other nec essary preparations for the grandest Exposition the world ever saw.

The recent combination of the great through lines of railroad to ad vance freights between the East and the West, has already come to grief, and the rates have been reduced about 50 per cent on the advanced prices. The new rates from the Eas tern cities to Cincinnati and Chicago range from 14 to 27 cents," for fifth class to first class freight, which is cheap enough.

McCrary seems to be his most formidable op ponent, and will probably be elected. Senator Harlan is a man of ability, but we should resrret to see him re turned to the Senate, while his repu tation remains under the cloud cast upon it by the grave charges of Gen.

The -House of Representatives this year is one of the finest irr ap- pearaence that we remember ever to have seen in the Capitol. There are some things that will be noticed as new and characteristic: .- To - begin with, nearly all the members are older than average Houses; there is scarcely a man that is younger' than the prime of middle age, and there are many white heads, iben, tue members are remarkably uniform in being of the intellectual type, with few rousers and rosy faced drinkers. There is an air of respectability and propriety which suggests a Presby terian General Assembly, or an Epis copal Convention a Methodist Con ference would be too lusty and emo tional, for them.

THE PRIVILEGE OF GIVING An Essay read before the Ladies' Missionary Society of Hillsboro. The few words that I shall aaj this even ing, will refer to tn great prrnlega of working for Him, who is King of Kings and Lord of Trds. What devotion doea earthly monarch, sometimes receive ? Many years ago, I remember, when read ing the Memories of Mme. D'Aiblay, I waa strack with the privations and positive dis comforts ahe waa willing to endure for the privilege of being near and serving her Queen. It seemed wondrous strange that a writer, whose fame was Enropean in ita extent, who was the favorite of the grebt Dr. Johnson, a lady whose social position. the daughter of Dr. Barney, was so en viable, whose familiar acquaintances were the wits and emrrreos literary smb of that day, should be willing to exchange all these advantages for life of self-denial. Yet, for the sake of showing her loyalty, the courted authoress endured uncomplaining ly, hnnger and fatigue; the rebuffs and crabbed ill-humor of her royal mistress ; the hard work and harder words, incident to her dependent position. For what end was all this self-denial? Not for honor; for the name of Fanny Barney was too well known, to derive addi tional lustra from its connection with a palace. Sot for wealth; for the consort of George the 3d, like the rest of the royal family, waa proverbial for her parsimony. It waa devotion to her sovereign, pure and unalloyed by baser motreee, that led this distinguished woman to give np so much that made her life delightful. Tho' her zeal was mistaken and mis placed, can we not, my sisters, learn some thing from I sr example ? 'What eaa we do to show onr loyalty to our King,, our love to onr Redeemer ? He who spoke, and it was done ; who commanded, and it stood fast; who said: "Let there be light, and there waa light ;" does not require onr fee ble efforts, our puny aid. In hia great power and might, he could call the Son of .Righteousness to send his beams athwart the benighted souls of those, who are still in the "region and shadow of death," and let man stand still and wonder at the mira cles of grace, .wrought by his powerful hand. - 'A word from him would to-day, (did he thus decree) be as potent to change a perse cuting Saul to a praying Paul, who could be all things to all men,, so that he might winsome. In finite condescension! Mar velous privilege ! He is willing to nse our weak instrumentality in this work, that might fill an angel's bands. , It filled a Sav ior's heart. He had our highest happiness in view, when he would thus teach ua practically, that "it is more blessed to give than to receive." O, my sisters ! 'What an inestimable honor is ours ! Co-workers with God, in. doing good to our fellow-sinners ! What an amazing grace is this that permits us, who so often err, whose service is at times so cold and formal, and even so grudgingly rendered, to !abor with and for him ! And best of all, not only the gifted and wealthy may help, bat the lowly and poor. The cup of cold water, given in the name of a disciple, is as acceptable as the gold. frankincense and myrrh of Eastern Magi, and the single garment of a Dorcas as pre cious in his sight, as the synagogue built by the rich Centurion. It is the consecration and love that faith gives, that embalms the gift, and renders it worthy of acceptance. That, we all may obtain, if we only seek aright Oar service is no menial drugery. "She who sweeps a room as by hia law, makes that and the action fine," says quaint old George Herbert. " ; Our Sovereign, whose subjects and daughters we also are, demands nothing that is not repaid a thousand-fold, what have we, that we have not received ? . What blessings are showered on us constantly by his beneficent hand ! Can we- obey the command, "Ooeupy till I come," if, thinking alone of our selfish interests, onr time, talents and wealth, are lavished ex clusively on our cares, business and en joyments ? We may take a lesson from the heathen Longoos. Before sitting to their morning meal, every member of the family, from the aged grand-parents to the youngest child, gives a part of his portion to the idol whom he ignorantly worships. "Shall we, whose souls are lighted with wisdom from on high," do less than the savage idolaters? Let us, my sisters, thanking God for what he has permitted as, as a Society, to do for hia in the past, with renewed zeal and diligence, do with our might, what our hands find to do, and let us rejoice that such a wide field is open before ua. In these latter days, we stand the same plane of Christian effort as do onr brethren., Let as not be deterred in onr endeavors to do good, by the thought that can do but little. Strength is not gained by inactivity, nor is progress made by standing still. In this extended' field, each can find something suited to her tal ent and capacity. The Eainbow is made of variously colored zones, yet formed by the same light, reflected through many tiny drops. So may we all, in our individ ual lives, reflect the light of the Gospel, and our Society, with its young and vigor ous bands, be the meansjf doing great and lasting benefit to the Church and to the world.
