It soon ' re
or gray hair
to its original
color, with the gloss and freshness of
youth. Thin hair is thickened, fall
ing hair checked, and baldness often,
though not always, cared by its
use. Nothing can restore the hair
where the follicles are destroyed, or
the glands atrophied and decayed ;
but such as remain can be saved by
this application, and stimulated into
activity, so that a new growth of
hair is produced. Instead of fouling
the hair with a pasty sediment, it
will keep it clean and rigorous. Its
occasional use will present the hair
from turning gray or falling off,
and consequently prevent baldness.
The restoration of vitality it gives
to the scalp arrests and preverits
the formation of dandruff, which is
often so uncleanly and offensive.
Free from those deleterious sub
stances which make spme prepara
tions dangerous, and injurious to tlie
hair, the Vigor can only benefit, but
not harm it. If wanted merely for
a HAIR DRESSING, nothing else
can be found so desirable. ' Contain
ing neither oil nor dye, it does not
soil white cambric, and yet lasts
long on the hair, giving it a rich,
gloeaiy lustre, nd a grateful perfume.

to the great number yon have already received in
favor of your great and good medicine, Veobtine,
for I do not think enough can be aaid in its praise,
for 1 was troubled over tblrtr rears with that
dreadful disease. Catarrh, and bad such bad
coughing spells that it would seem aa though I
eould never breathe any more, and Vboktine ha
cured me; and I do feel to thank God all the time
there la so good a medicine aa Vxsbtikb, and I
also think it one of the beat medicines for coughs
and weak sinking feelings at the stomach, and ad
vise everybody to take the Veoetinb, for I can as
sure tbem that it is one of tbe best medicine that
ever was. MRS. L. GORE,

physician and apothecaries to be the best purifier
and cleanser of the blood yet discovered, and thou

given tbe best satisfaction of any remedy for the
complaint for which it is recommended that 1 ever
sold. Scarcely a day passes without some of my
customers testifying to its merits on themselves or

To H. B. Stevens, Esq.
Will Cleanse Sorofula from the
Ma. H. R. Steves- :
ear Sir Tbia i. to .how that mv son was taken
sick in January, 1864, with Scrofula, which came
ont in large sore and nicer on hi leg and hip.
His leg was swelled more than twice its natural
size. He had several doctors of high standing in
their profession two from Boston and three trom
Chariestowa without getting a bit better. He was
obliged to lie wherever he was placed, for he had
no use of his limns whsfever. w hen we had given
up all hopes of bis living we were told to try veoe
tins, the great blood remedy ; and he had taken
it but a short time before we could see a great
change. The sores ran so had that we had to
change the cloths four or five times a day. Still,
he was getting better : for be could move his limbs
and help himself a little. He was soon able to Bit
up in bed, and, by constant nse of Veoetike, It
has cured him. He has a lame leg, which he will
probably have for life ; but we all honestly believe,
if we had nsed Veoetinb before we had bothered
with those doctors, it would have saved the ufre of
bis leg, and restored it to natural health. 1 hope
all those troubled with Scrofula will read this tes
timony of me and my son, who i now well and
able to apeak for himself.

For nearly two months past he has
been confined to bis home, gradually
sinking, without hope of recovery,
the final summons expected at any

Saturday, and was largely attended
by the citizens of Washington and
neighboring towns, representatives
of the Chillicothe, Circleville and

Judge Gray's death caused a gen

munity. As a man and citizen, his
character was beyond reproach, and
he enjoyed the universal respect and
friendship of our people. His ad
ministration on the Common Pleas
bench did honor to himself and the
position he held, and his official con
duct received approval and commen
dation throughout the district

The Late Judge Gray.
Judge T. M. Gray was born in
Greenfield, Highland County, Oct
At the age of eleven, he lost his
mother, and from that time he had,
for the most part, to make his own
way in life. He learned the tailor's
trade, in the meantime pursuing his
studies as best he could. March 29,
1853, he was united in marriage to
Mary Jane Hillhouse, near Burling-,
ton, Iowa. He returned to Green
field, carried on the business of his
trade and thus supported his family;
at the same time studying law. Dur
ing the war of the rebellion be en
tered the army aa Lieutenant, but
was obliged to resign after a few
months, from ill health.
- Oct 19, 1863, he removed with his
family to Washington C H. Fayette
Co., O. From this time Mr. Gray
gave himself entirely to the profess
ion of law, with commendable zeal
and success. In 1873 he was elect
ed to tbe office of Judge of the Court
of Common Pleas. This office he
filled with credit to himself till he re
signed, shortly before his death. He
was an industrious and energetic
man; firm in his convictions, and hon
est in his opinions; cheerful and
hopeful. . As a husband and father,
he was affectionate, considerate and
faithful; genial, free and obliging as
friend and neighbor. He was a
man of deep religious convictions,
an attendant on public worship, but
not a professor of religion. Last
spring he lost his wife, and was him
self in poor health all summer. He
now gave the subject of personal re
ligion more attention; obtained hope
in Christ, and united with the Pres
byterian church. Although his hope 1
was tremulous at first, before his
death he had great peace and perfect
trust in the Lord Jesus. The night
before he died he bade his children
farewell, gave them his parting conn
sels, and requested them to meet
him and their mother in heaven. Jan.
13th, 1876, he fell asleep to awake in
the other world. His disease, with
which he had been troubled many
months, was cancer of the bowels, so
bis last days were painful, but peace
ful. A dispatch states that the small
pox is prevailing in all portions of
Portsmouth, and that upwards of
fifty cases bad been reported to the
Board of Health. The alarm over the
spread of the disease is greater than

WASHINGTON, Jan, 14, 1876.
Editor News: Tbe past week has
been a time of feverish excitement in
the lote branch of Congress, and has
served to unmask the animus and
purposes of the Confederate leaders.
We have long insisted that the Beb
els are just as much rebel to-day, as
when fighting in the field. When tney
were overpowered in arms they yield
e l because they must, and from that
time on they have been seeking to
gain by diplomacy that which they
could not .obtain by the cannon.
Ever and anon their aims and in
tent would crop out. Jne by one
they have captured tbe old States of
slavery, and are cementing them in
to a political phalanx. They obtained
control of those having tbe fewest
blacks first, and have gone on until
they have all the South well in band,
but South Carolim, and thev are
fast winding thir slimy folds around
Mississippi was their last conquest,
and tue way they won it is history.
Every where South they proclaim,
"this is a white man's government''
Under the Constitution it i the Peo
pies, government, the black man hav
ing all the legal rights that belong
to the white man. A republican
form of government is guaranteed to
all,andthe White Leagite, which over
throws and defies the guaranty, is
just as much an enemy of the Union
as the army of Gen. Ii. E. Lee at
These Confederates are wily fel
lows. Tuey are anything to win,
imagining tuemseives a superior
race, which comes from their long
domination over the "nigger," thej
feel themselves outraged unless per
mitted to rule. They have no choice of
flags unless they control. They ruled
this country when Democracy was in
ascendant, and its corruptions the
disgusted the best men in its ranks,
and it lost power, then these chivai
ric men of the slave region made war,
seeking to establish a government ol
their own, the corner stone of which
was to be slavery. Failing in this,
they are back again, and now just as
they and their old allies get control
of the House, they are again showing
their cloven fooi.--- ." 1.
Hill, of Georgia, their chosen cham
pion, dropped the mask and show
ed the whole form of the monster
His speech is before the country, and
we are glad it is. We hope it will
awaken northern men to a sense of
danger, and rally them in iimeo de
feat the Confederates in their pfan of
capturing the Union while in it. '
Such audacity of pretenses and
such falsification of history rarely
finds utterance in our halls of legis
lation. Think of the impudence of
pretending that they"wen the observ
ers of good faith, and the Govern
ment alone offended! Out upon that
"Punic-iaith" which marked all their
transactions. Thev the friends of the
Union. Has shame no blush? One
would suppose that a man capable of
such an utterance must have gradu
ated from an. institution where the
"Father of Lies" is professor.
These imps come back dripping
with blood, and festering in perfidy,
and audaciously plead that they were
the wronged party. Their preten
sions were literally demolished by
Blaine and Garfield, and we hope
that the debate will be given to the
country as a campaign document
By the law of nations, these rebels
forfeited all rights to life, liberty and
property. They all know this, and
it was the purpose of their leaders to
flee the country, and many went to
Mexico, Brazil and other places, be
cause they well knew they had forfeit
ed all claims, even to life here. Soon,
however, it became apparent that our
Government was inclined to be mag
nanimous in its treatment of them,
and most of them remained. Our
Government was too lenient, restored
their rights too quickly; and now the
serpent warmed into life turns and
The charges of Hill was "Satan re
buking sin." His defending Jeff
Davis was evidence of the extent to
which treason can go in audacity. We
care nothing for the person of Dav
is, but for our Government to give
him the right to be President of the
United States, without his asking for
it, and with all the rebel spirit boil
ing in Dixie, we think is the insanity
of clemency, and men who claim it
for him are bold indeed. We accord
bravery to Southern men, and that
was their only virtue in war. .
We regret as much as any one the
fact that rebellion is yet rampant in
our country, and while treason raves
let the "bloody shirt" flutter in the
breeze. We say just so soon as you
cease to be rebels, we will cease to
call you so. But so long as you
hold those sentiments, and practice
them by your lawless rule at the bal
lot box, we cannot credit youi lip
professions of having accepted the
situation. It ia plainly a lie just
that and nothing else.
We claim the House of Represent-
atives is Confederate, not Democrat
ic, unless thoso are held ks convex
tible terms. The Bebs control it
The party are now straining ' every
nerve to getr control of the' Senate.
Witness thenj late" Louisiana : Sena
torial election,' their charges against
an Alabama Senator, and their pepar
atiotis 2$ a coup detat in the Palmet
to States Alt . these point towards
rebel rule in the Senate. They have
three modes' bf proceeding against
Republicans, by flattery and bribery,
by intinud&tion,' anl' by pistol
rhetoric. " . '
They captured Gov. Chamberlain
by the first mode. Haying got him
so that he will neither call out the
State troops, nor ask the General
Government for aid against the White
LeagUvley will be able to carry the
State, for the Confederate Sambo
goes under next election in the Pal
metto State, and that makes the
South a' unit for "Democracy," as it
Here they have 134 electoral
votes, and a pretty alarming proba
bility of being able to carry some of
the Eastern and Western States. If
tbey can get control of the Senate
and elect a .President what have . we
to expect? Either they will rule in
tne union, granting rebel pensions
and paying for slaves, and in - time
paying the Confederate debt or they
will step out and have a kingdom of
their own, and Sambo will have to
get out, or take his former position
as a slave. It will be a white mans
government, The Constitution . is
only binding on one side. Rebels
ignored it, waged war against us, and
insisted we. must whip them within
constitutional bounds. Again they
deny black men their rights, compel
them to vote with them, or starve, or
die. They thus ignore a Constitu
tional provision, and if the Govern
ment attempts to make its guarantees
good, it is a violation of "State
Rights," an infraction of the Consti
tution, and destruction to the liber
ties of the people! .
We do hope the friends of the
country will see in what direction
things are tending, the dangers that
threaten us, and again rally as in
1868 and 1872, and rout our old
We confess to being somewhat
alarmed.- Abuses nnder Republican
rule have soured many. Glittering
promises and hypocritical professions
have lured many Union soldiers back
into the party from whose ranks they
were driven by the treason of their
leaders. These men would quickly
turn their backs on their party if
they could only come to realize the
purposes and intents of those Rebels
wha have now got control of it
Werf$nnot but fight it over again,
by ballot, we mean. The Amnesty
debate this weekshows us that we
must defeat the claims of Hill's party,
or lose all that was won by our army
in the civil war.
Congress is getting an immense
number of bills, nearly a thousand
in the House. Every green member
thinks be must introduce bills, or
his constituents will think he did
nothing failed to earn his money.
This causes an accumulation of trash
that is appalling. We need some
members who are good at killing
bills. They are more valuable than
others. Too much legislation is a
crying eviL A little wholesome neg
lect of doing anything, would be a
benefaction. No 'legislation of a
general nature yet through the mill
Even the Centennial Subsidy will
will fail this week to get through.
Our wayward friends, who live near
neighbors to the sun, threaten to de
feat it unless Jeff Davis is nude a
gentleman by act of Congress. He
made a traitor of himself, and an act
of Congress is hardly sufficient to
cleanse him. We would say, let him
occupy the position he deliberately
chose. . J. P- C
