Jayne's Expectorant.
This medicine has already proved itself
to be-all that it has been recommended, by
those who have given it a fair test in this
country, and the demand for it increases
daily. We have just heard of an impor
tant cure of Asthma, which has been effect
ed by the use of it, in a neighboring town
. the case was that of a female who had
for a long time been tinder the care of a
physician but had received no relief, and
her case was considered hopeless. As a
last resort she purchased a bottle of Dr.
Jay ne's Expectorant, which caused her to
expectorate freely, gradually ceased her
cough, and is rapidly restoring her to
health. We have no hesitation in saying
that this preparation of Dr. Jayne for cure
of coughs, colds, influenza, asthma, con
sumptions, &c. is the most valuable medi
cine ever offered to the American public.
There is no quackery about it Dr. Jayne
is one of the most skilful practising physi
cians in Pennsylvania; and wherever his
various preparations have been thoroughly
tested, he is looked upon as a great public
benefactor. Somerset (Me.) Journal.
DYSPEPSIA AND LIVER COM
PLAINT may be cured with certainty,
and at a trifling expense, byT taking every
night, at bed-time, two or three of Jay ne's
Sanative Pills, and a dose of either his Al
terative or Vermifuge three times a day.
This treatment never fails to cure.

Now is the time to redeem ft or I h Caro

So far as this Congressional District is

Generals Scott and Worth. The
New Orleans Delta has published, in a
supplementary sheet, the correspondence
of Gens. Scott and Worth, relative to the
late difficulties in the army, subsequent to
the publication of the army orders, censu
sing severely certain letters written to the
United States. The supplement does not
appear to have been sent in this direction,
but we find in a Western paper the follow
ing brief notice of the correspondence:
Gen. Worth addressed a , letter to Gen.
Scott stating that he learned with astonish
ment that it was the opinion of the Army
that the imputation of scandalous conduct
mentioned in a general order, referred to
him, and asking if such was the Intention
of the Commander-in-chief.
Gen. Scott replied that the order clear
ly expressed that he meant to apply the
imputation to the author of the letter sign
ed "Leonidas." -
Gen. Worth rejoined, and said he did
not consider the answer 'satisfactory.
Gen. Scott replied that he could not be
more explicit. ' He had nothing to do with
the -suspicions of others, and, if he had
valid information of the authorship, he
would prosecute the parties before a court
martial. ' ; '. n-r: :--...
Gen. Worth replied that he supposed
the Commander regarded him as not de
serving a satisfactory answer, and, feeling
himself aggrieved, he should appeal to the
President. He concluded by accusing
Scott of acting in a manner unbecoming an
UfJ a ntIeman-
-
Gen. Scott then ordered Worth under
arrest, for behaving with contempt and
disrespect towards the Commander-in-chief.

The fatal Chloroform ase. The
Cincinnati papers of Friday last, contain
references to the case of Mrs. Simmons,
who suddenly sunk, as in death, while
having teeth extracted, under the influence
of chloroform. The Commercial says:
"The post mortem examination of the body
of Mrs. Simmons had not taken place last
eveuing, and the attending physicians ex-l
press the hope of , a possibility that she
may yet be restored to life the body be
ing still warm! Efforts are made, of course,
to restore her.
There were several rumors on Thurs
day afternoon, that she had partially re
vived. But the Cincinnati Queen City of
the 24th ult., says that every effort was
made to restore her, but in vain; the vital
spark had fled.
Fatal Experiment with Chloroform.
A young lady, daughter of Mr. Mac
donald, a baker in Catharine street, in this
city, recently met her death in , the most
awful manner, from , the use of this dqw
fashionable but most dangerous preparation.
About three weeks ago, the ether was em
ployed to allay the toothache; , but subse
quently the sufferer was supposed. to die,
from what cause does not appear. :The
apparent death, however, was only a trance,
or protracted swoon; for, on opening the
coffin a day or two ago, the unfortunate
girl had turned round upon her face, and
in her agony and desperation had actually
destroyed two of her fingers, on recover
ing from her temporary death by ether.
The coroner's investigation should elicit
the fact as Ao who prescribed a remedy
which produced this most frightful result.

mile and a half above the depot in Fitch
burg, a horse and sleigh with two ladies
passing the railroad, when the horse be
came frightened and backed the sleigh on
the track, by which both of the ladies were
thrown out in front of the engine, run over,
and instantly killed. The engine, as soon
as the horse was seen to back, sounded the
alarm, and the train was nearly stopped
when the fatal collision took place. The
unfortunate ladies who thus lost their lives
were Mrs. Osborn, wife of Mr. Abraham
Osborn, of Fitchburg, and her daughter,
Mrs. Jacob Tolman, of West Sterling.
The head of one was severed from the body.

An Importer. Many of our readers
have noticed. that nearly every Sunday, in
front of "Cathedral has stood an old
beggar, who, tin cup in hand, presented
the strongest kind of appeal, by his wo
begone appearance, to the sympathies of
all who passed by. The police of the
First Municipality have lately discovered
that, far from being an object of chanty,
he is a holder of some $15,000 worth of
property in Lafayette, and about 5,000
deposited in the various banks of the city.
A very largeportion of this sum has been
raised by begging, which he has followed
for many years. r During the week : his
"tramp" is on the Levee; and on -Sunday
his scene of operation is confined to the
different churches. When arrested by
Officer Trescazes, he had on his person six
dollars in dimes an'd picayunes. -His
name is Antonio Fanchieu, and, with his
wife, he has carried on the most systemat
ic scheme of imposition thattve have heard
of for a long time. -AT. O. Delta. :

Alleviation from Cough. Persons us
ing stoves for warming apartments, will
find that a small piece of common resin,
dipped in the water. which is placed in a
vessel on the stove, will add a peculiar
property to the atmosphere of the room,
which will 'give great relief to persons
troubled with a cough, who breathe the
atmosphere of the apartment. The heat
of the water is sufficient to throw off the
'roma of the resin, and gives the same re
lief as is afforded by a combustion of the
resin! It is preferable to combustion, be
eaiise - the" evaporation is more durable.
The same resin may be used or weeks.
