In many of theee cases the persons nay that their pain and sutTeriugcauuot.be expressed, as in canes of Scrofula, where, appa rently, thr whole body was oue mass of corrup tion.

It cau be truly called Great Blood i uhiher. The great source of disease originates iu the blood ; and no medicine thut does not act directly upon it, to purify aud icnovate, has any juM claim Uon public attention. When the blood becomes lifeless and stagnant, either from change of weather or climate, want of exer cise, irregular diet, or from any other cause, the Veoetine will renew the bhHxl, carry off the putrid humors, cleanse the stomach, regulate the bowels and impart a tone of vigor to the whole body. The comictlon in, in the public mind as well us iu the medical profession, that the reme dies .supplied by the Vegetable Kingdom are more sate, more successful, in the enre ol disease, than mineral medicine.

Yon see I am again in my quiet little mount tin home, wnere I will have more time to devote to my dear borne friends. The Mission 1 been very kind in appointing me Lahore, with the privilege of this mountain Station in the hot weather The visit of tho Prince of Wales to Lahore was attended with a great deal of excitement and display. He was there almost a week, and we bad two illuminations, displays of fi re works and the usual Ball at the Government Houss. This I did not see. All the schools were drawn np in line each side of the road, and our 1500 bovs made novmall shoW. The two flags, the stars and stripes and the Union Jack, were placed at the ViB.id f the column. The Prince passed in an open carriage, with gold lace umbrella held over him by the Lieut. Governor, Sir Henry Davis. The Prince was dressed l his military suit, and wora a simpl helmet on his head. But no doubt you have seen all this in the papers over and over again The Prince's visit to Amritsar was of more interest to me, as he there met the native Christians, and re ceived from them an address, and copies of the Bible, in four of the dia lects of the Punjab. I enclose you a copy of the address, which was print ed in English on white satin, and in Persian on parchment, elaborately ornamented in real oriental style. These were folded in a rich, heavy piece of brocade silk, of very gay colors, and placed in a chaste silver casket The grounds around the Church Mission House were filled with na tive Christians, and the different Missions schools of the place. As the Prince and his suite drove in they were heartily cheered, and as alighted from the carriage "God Save the King was sung in Hin dustani. I hope His Royal High ness recognized his national air, but have my doubts. Cashmere shawls abundance waved as flags along the road on which the royal process ion passed. Canon Duckworth, the chaplain the Prince, seemed to bo an earn est Christian man, and he returned the Mission Housa and. in & very friendly way met the nativa Christ ians, took them by tho Land, nnd then mide a very good address to them. He said he had seen many wonderful, beautiful and interesting sights in India, but none of them eave him the pleasure which meet ing and taking these Cbristiin breth ren by the hand gave him. I wish all the Indian chaplains were of the same spirit I cannot but feel more and mora that one of Satan's strongest holds is among Government chaplains. They are "blind leaders of the blind." We have a new chaplain here, but we have little to hope from his influence for good. We have also a new regi ment the 73d. The officers seem to be gentlomen, and some of them Christ ians. A large number of the men are earnest Christians, so with God's blessing we hope to accomplish much good in our efforts among them. Our native work has very little to en courage ns. We do naed counge, faith and patience. All we can do is sow beside all waters, but here it seems only barren rocks. Yesterday, when I went to school, found a fine locking young native Cashmere standing by fie veran dah, waiting for me. He said his sister was very ill, and wished ma so and see her. I at once went with him far down the mountain side, to a wretched hove!. There erreat number of their friends had assembled, and one was holding the poor suffering woman. Oh, how helpless I felt! I tried to read some comforting words of JesuF, but a woman in a shriii voice called out, ho was Jests' mother? who was Jesus' father?" nnd said "we do not believe iD him." I sent for our native Christian teacher, hoping he might sav something to do them good and direct the suffering one to Christ I left then, telling them I would send for the regimental doctor, who is a Christian, but before I had the note written, the poor woman was dead. returned to the house, but could say little to comfort them. The house was crowded with friends, and some of them were busy preparing the body for the grave. She left infant only six aays oia. vn our way back to tho school house, we stopped to talk with various groups women, but they all say "our sons can be taught, but our dacgh ters mast not go to schoo1, as it is not our custom." "Can these dry bones live?" is a question that often pre sents itself. ADDRESS FROM THE XATrVE CHRISTIANS OF THE PUNJAB TO TUE PRINCE OF WALES. We, your Royal Highness hum blu servants, approach your august presen' e. We do not represent any great State or city, but we are a little flock, gathered by the grace of God, in the course of about thirty years, "out of every kindred and tongue, a and people and nation," of this Prov ince, a flock which, by the power of Go, is increasing every day. We rejoice exceedingly that your Royal Highness Las honored this country with your presence, for, as subjects of Her Most Gracious Majes ty the Queen, in addition to that prosperity which all the people of this country derive from Her Majes ty's government, we have received even greater blessings under British rules, namely, those spiritual bless ing, which are imperishable, and far better than this world's treasures. God has now given us a most wel come opportunity of offering to the Heir Apparent to the Throne of this country a tribute of our devotion and re8peAt, and of assuring your Royal Highness how deeply-we feel indebted to these Christian people, of whose labors and self-denials we are the fruit We have been called to God by foreign Missionaries, who, in giving us spiritual instruction and support, have displayed an ener gy and endurance which the Christ ians of India in generations to come will not forget For, although this Government does not in any way interfere with religious belief, still Christian people have fonnd un der British rule an opportunity of proclaiming in this country the Word of God, which has been the means of great blessing to other lands, and by which the darkness of this land and is being gradually re moved, and light and purity are be ing din used. With great pleasure and thankful ness, we beg that your Royal High ness will be graciously pleased to ac cept copies of the Sacred Scripturas in Urdu, Persian, Punjab and Af ghani, which have been translated by foreign Missionaries for our benefit, and we pray that the rule of Her Most Gracious Majesty, the Queen, whose piety and holy life are an ex ample to her subjects, may be estab lished and prolonged, and also that the divine protection may ever be vouchsafed to your Royal Highness, that you may be enriched with heav enly blessings, and in all things glori fy God, through our Lord Jesus Christ The abovo address was gracefully acknowledged by one of the Prince's J. A. N. [Correspondence of the News. Southwest Texas. Southwest Texas i3 mt much of an agricultural country. Very little rain falls during May, June, July and August not enough usually to make good crops of corn. Wheat does moderately well, and oats in good seasons yield enormously. This has been a pretty fair seascn to this date, but rain is beginning to be needed. Wheit and oats har vest will begin in ten days or two weeks. This is not a fruit country, that is, not much of a fruit country. Have not seen an applo or cherry tree for months. Peaches do very well, but have not seen many trees. Figs are about as common as any other fruit. They are now nearly full grown, and would be ripe, but the early ones were nipped by the heavy frosts about the last of March. No straw berries here, no currants, aDd I have seen no blackberries, althoug they may grow. Sweet potatoes do well. Cotton makes from half a bale to a bale per acre, lue business ol this section is stock raising, cattle, sheep ard horses. The sheep interest just now is taking the lead. There are also some goat ranches. Horses, wild upon the prairie, are worth from ten to fifteen dollars, or about the same as cattle. Sheep are worth, for com mon native stock, about two dollars. good many Ine sleep are being brought into the country. In bring ing stock of any kind here from oth er countries, great care has to be ta ken of it for a year or so to keep it. No stock, except wor k horses and milk cows, is fed grain in winter, that is, native stout. No grasses that grow in Ohio grow here. The sum mers are too hot and dry for timo thy, blue grass, or clover. Mesquit, of several varieties, grow3 here the year round, and sage grass. Here near San Antonio, gardens are irregated from the San Antonio river, and produce abundantly. As remaiked in a previous letter, there are no farms worthy of the name of farms, near t'lis city. For miles around the country is ccvcrcd with largo growth of Mesiuit, and after leaving the city limits one may ride ia some directions for miles without seeing any improvements. Yesterday we rode down the west bank of the river five miles, to the San Jose Mission, then east across the river to another old Mission, and in perhaps eight miles of the ride we did not pass but one improved place! It is said that one hundred years ago thousands of acres now unoccu pied were in a high state of cnltiva tion. This was when Texas was a part of the Spanish Mexican posses sions, when Uncle Sam's domain was smaller and more sparsely populated than now. About one quarter of the popula tion of this country is Mexican. They live in very poor excuses for houses, not equal to the negro shan ties, as a general thing, and some times, yes, frequently, they live in huts that with you in Ohio, would hardly be thought good winter quar ters for hogs. Many of these Jack als (pronounced Hackels) are built by driving cedar pickets in the ground and putting on a roof of straw, cane, or old blankets. Many of them are built of adobe, and oc casionally in good style, but thia is the exception and not the rule, al though the owners sometimes have money, and might build much better.. One afternoon, in company with a collector for a sewing machine agen cy, we called at two or three of these places. One of them was occupied by Mary de Jesus Cis, and was some what above tbe average in that part of the city. Here is the style of it: About 12 by 16 feet in size, with oDe very narrow shed, or partly closed back rocm, built of post-oak pickets, daubed within and without with one opening, possibly two, without glass, but closed by solid shutters; two doors, no fire place, and no floor but Mother Earth, and that not as smooth as a threshing floor by a good deal. The furniture consisted of two trunks, one bed, ODe or two excuses for chairs, a sewing machine, looking glas3, two or three crosses, snd not much else. We only saw two or three persons about the house at the time of our visit but the balance of the family were lying around somewhere. We wondered where -they stowed them all away at night It might be worth while to mention that the f gent got five dollars in specie on bis sewing machine, poor though the place looked. Children and dog3 are usually numbered by the dozen or half doz en. In the Jackal above partly do scribed, we only saw three dogs. The children were probably under a neighboring Mesquit bush. Me sic en women do not wear ton nets. They always have a shawl or scarf thrown ova.' their head and shoulders. The men generally wear wide-rimmed hats, "roundabouts," with red sash tied about the waist, a3 an Irishman wears his belt's We road of noble looking Spaniardsv'tull and sharp-featured, but these are not characteristics of a Mexican here abouts. It is said that for many years, when a Mexican got into debt he never thought of getting out by any other way than by paying 100 cts. on the dollar, or honorably discharging the obligation. Liko the Indians, they are learning tricks from the white man, and ars not as reliable as of old, although my friend, the col lector, informed me that he consid ered them safe usually for tha pay ments upon a sawing machine. Northern people are here by bun dreds Many corns ta look after the stock business. Some stay and go into business; piany return with no flittering opinion of the country. It is said that there were 1000 per sons here the past winter for their health, lung and throat diseases gen erally, but many of them, now that the weather is getting hot, aro go ing north. For consumption, asth ma and like afflictions, this climate is, if sought in time, very superior, and many derive great advantage from a visit here. But this letter has grown too long, I so adios!

Our boys took no part in the fight, but of course our sympathy was with No. I am not able to say what the result might have been, ft other cir cumstance, had not transpired, to put a stop to the contest In the midst of one of No. J's flank movements another batch of Uuion prisoners was announced. There proved to be seven of their, one Captain of a New Jersey Cavslry Regiment, two Lieutenants of the same regiment, two privates, one wagon muter and one civilian. The Captain was a very finely-dressed officer. He wore a gold-laced cap, one dress coat, and gold-lace up and down the seams of his pauis. He sported a line chronome ter gold watch and chain, that cost 390. Be was a Dane by birth and spoke broken English. The other two officers were not so extravagantly dressed, but wore very good uniform, and carried silvc- watches. The wagon-master was a Mia- Votaan, byhe name of Ileury Ingram. Ue also carried a fine gold chronometer repeater, varaed at SOTO, and had tlOOO in greenbacks in his pocket, besides a considerable amount of jewelry. One of the privates was a deserter from the Union army, and the other was a boy about sixteen years old, who belonged to the State of New York. The civilian belonged to Louisiana. He was finely dressed, looked to be about 30 years old, aud had on his person $13,000 in greenbacks, that he had received from some speculator for his cot ton crop. Hi was a wealthy planter and said to be a Union man. His name was Drake. They were all captured near Baton Rouge, La. As soon as tbey were admitted to our room It occurred to us to try and save some of the money and watches belonging to our new friends. The reader ill please take notice that here was anoth er instance of men coming all tbe way from Baton Rouge to Canton, Mississippi, 200 miles under guard, carrying $IB,ikw on their persons and good clothes on their backs, and none of their property disturbed nntil they fell into the hand, of the aristocratic yourjg soldiers (!) of the South. The guards were slow about getting at their day's work, and we had time to tell the new-comers what they might expect. Ingram was sitting close to tbe stove, and after he was informed of the character of the guards he took out his thousand dollars and threw it ia the stove, and the fire re duced it to ashes. Mr. Drake asked me if I knew of any way to conceal his money, and after a little reflection an idea occurred to me and I proposed it to him. I had become acquainted with Capt. Johnson during the few days we had been together, and I thought him a very clever gentleman. I knew the guards wouldn't dare to search him, so I suggested to Mr. Drake to give his money over to Capt. Johnson for safe keeping. The money was transferred to tbe Captain's care not a minute too soon, for the door was threwn open and In walked a half dozen of the light-angered gentry. Tucker in their midst, and went to riding the pockets of the officers and men indiscriminately. The Captain stoutly objected, and called for the protection of the Confederate officers, bnt no at tention was paid to the call. His fine watch and chain changed hands, and all the rest of his valua bles shared the same fate. The rest of tbe prisoners received the same at tent ion as the Captain, and at the close of the per formance, tbe Confeds. retired to divide their booty. The Captain procured a slip of paper, and wrote to the Provost Marshal, complaining of the treatment he had received. All the satisfaction be received in reply was this answer: "That's the way my men make their living." After tbe guards had examined their witches, jewelry, 4c, they returned, and we were all required to stand In lino and be searched. Tucker took a leading part, and proved that be was an expert. The second investigation only turned up a few small articles, and we were dismissed once more. The next move of the guards was to take pos session of the prisoners' clothing. They took each out of the room separately and exchanged with him. They called it "swapping" the reader can put hia own construction on It. Mr. Drake received in place of his fine suit, an old U. S. overcoat, very badly worn old shoes and a very shabby-looking bat. ilia breaches were a good deal the worse for wear, and on the whole he was metamorphosed entirely. To add insult to injury, he was then hand-cuffed, his ankles chained together, and treated as a spy. Captain Johnson, who bad the unfortunate man's money, took sick the next morning and sent for the surgeon. The surgeon pronounced him dangerously ill, and or dered him removed to tbe Hospital for treatment. He was carried out by f ur men and with him went Mr. Drake's $i3,oi of cotton money. It was evident then that Capt. Johnson hai feigned sick ness for the purpose of getting away with the coney, and I suppose the surgeon aud officers were iu the plot. Mr. Drake was treated as a spy and sentenced to be shot- I never learned wheth er his sentence was executed or not, but the opin ion of my comrades was that be was accused of being a spy as a cloak, hi order that the provost guards could rob bim with impunity. The Union officers who came with Mr. Drake from Baton Rouge said that the only charge that could be sustained against him was that he entered tire Union lines with his cotton, sold it for green backs, and was captured on his way home. He didnt seem to hanker after greenbacks any more than our Canton guards did. About that time one dollar of the "hireling" money, as the rebels called It, was worth Jive "gray back" dollars I The reader n ay be curious to know how oar Jersey Ciptaio and his Lieutenants stood the in dignities and Insults of their captors. The two Lieutenants were true Americans, who could adapt themselves to any circumstances, and when they were relieved of their uniforms and furnished with a suit of old gray clotbes and a little narrow brim, dirty white hat each, they pretended to enjoy the joke i much as anybody. Not so with the foreign Ctptain. He was accustomed to have men respect aad obey bim, and as for jokes, he couldnt see any points to them at all. Tucker had taken all his clothes, and also his watch and chain, and wh.'n he was brought back be was completely crest-fallen and dejected. Being bare-headed, Tucker looked around for a cap or hut that would do for him. and finally discovered a Zouave cap, which struck him as being tbe very thing to set the Captain off. The top of the cap was red, and !f Tucker had hunted all over Dixie he couldnt have found anything that would have insulted the Captain like presenting him with that cap. He dashed it on the floor and exclaimed, "I vill vair no BreetUh gap! Yon cant shteek him on me." This was just the kind of fnn Tucker enjoyed, so he picked, up the cap and again placed it upon tbe Captni:'s head. Again he dashed it down and moved to auother part of tho room, but his tor mvntor followed him up and persisted in forcing him to wear the rap. The Captain got mulish, and wouldn't talk, bnt as fast as Tucker put the cap on his head he would dau It off. Finally, Tucker got tired and left the cap lying on the CaptainV knee, and some of the boys, out of pity, took it and gave him an old black hat, which he wore very complacently. If the Captain had used a little discretion, aud accepted the cap at first, he would have been saved the insult and humiliation be was subjected to. One more of Tucker's outrageous acts, and I will be done with him, as far as he Is concerned In this narrative. We had two negroes with us as prisoners, one a very old snd pious man, a slave. nd a leader at their plantation meetings. The other was a young fellow. One day Tucker took np the poker and ordered the old negro to pray for Jeff. Davis. The old fellow obeyed by kueeling down aud going to work in g-iod earnest, whil 'i'icker made the young fellow stand before him and "pat jiha." Whenever the old man dfunt pray just to suit Tucker, he would strike bim over t'ae head with the poker. Iu this way Tucker ex tracted a very different supplication no doubt from what would have been offered np if the poor old slave had been allowed freedom of thought. The time at last arrived for Tucker's trial for murder. An officer conducted him to headquar ters, where in the course of an hour everything was explained satisfactorily, (!) and Tucker was released and ordered back to tbe front, ready fox duty ! He came up to onr room with a pair of re volvers hanging to his belt, gave O ok and Crigby each tW In Confederate script, said he had none for me, but wonld give me a pass, that nobody would search me if I would present it.

In the News of the 27th of last January I saw a letter calculated to lead people to beb'eve that General Sherman was surprised at the battle of Shiloh. Now, in behalf of Gen. Sherman, I will just say that I can not see how he could possibly have been surprised under the circum stances, from the fact that on the ! Thursday before the battle of Shiloh, which took place cn Sunday, April 6th, General Buckland was sent out with a scouting party, with his brig ade the Seventieth and Forty eighth Ohio, and others. Company A of the Seventieth Ohio was in front, and we (Company A) drove in the" rebel pickets, and heard the long roll beat in ' the rebel camps, when we were ordered to fall back and prepare for battle. As for Colonel Parker, only seeing indications of the rebels perhaps did not alarm him much, but we saw the Johnnies and drove them in, and then fell back some distance until evening, when we were ordered by General Buck land to fall bock to the brigade, which we did, followed by the rebels. On the following morning (Friday) they made an attack on onr pickets, which were reinforced by our own men, and considerable skirmishing took place, and several wounded men were brought into onr camp. Yet still it is said we were surprised, although each day we were fighting the rebels, nntil Sunday morning. To say that General Sherman was surprised is a disgrace lo the noble heroes who laid thick on the bloody field of Shiloh, and on insult to those who survived. It is true that the rebels came out in force early on Sunday morning, and I know onr long roll beat before we all .got breakfast; but what of that? Would any man of good sound sense dare to say that, after three or four days of picket fighting, General Sherman was surprised? That can not be, as he must have known that the enemy was there, and in full force. Your correspondent, "M.," states that he was on the camp-ground of the Forty-eighth Ohio ten days after the battle, and saw where the rebels camped, not more than two or three miles from our camp, and that the enemy was undiscovered. That is a great mistake, and very unreasonable to suppose. In conclusion I must repeat that, after the rebels had been driven into their camp by our scouts, who heard their long roll beaten, and after fighting with them three days before the great battle on Sunday, I truly think that "M." must be wrong in saying that General Sherman was swprised at Shiloh. I subscribe myself, A MEMBER OF 70TH O. V. I. [For the News. Secession Not Dead--Danger Ahead. Disputes about the nature and character of our Government seem destined to be endless. The true doctrine seems to be made clear by the plain words of the Constitution itself. It is confirmed by public writers, such as Story, Mansfield and Paschall. A great light is held over it in the great speech of Daniel Webrter, delivered in 1830. And an excellent summnry of it is found in the pithy words cf a patriotic senti ment by Andrew Jackson: ,lThe American Union, !t must be pre served." That Union was reached through severe discipline, and Washington whose wisdom, extended as his fame, wiil be cherished throughout ages saw that it would be exposed to danger from the bad passions of men. in me nanu oi uuu no itood." and in the crowning act of his public life, with the most solemn utterances, he warned his country men against this danger. How eat how imminent it became, is now among the sad experiences of tho American people. The same doctrines that led to the Rebellion continue to be taught in tho Southern States. Pardoned rebels are the teachers Wade Hamp ton, Ben Hill, Robert Toombs, James ordort, Beverly Tucker, Alexander H. Stephens, and others of a like character. Such men can nave no doubt that Southern views and feel ings will dominate, as surely as the night follows day, if the Democratic party can become successful. The mere prospect of such an event warms them into life, and makes them noisy, menacing and venomous. We are warned.
