The dissatisfied colored voters and
the Dixmyth Democracy ol Cincin
nati, to whom Means owes his election,
should sec to it that the police are
used in the interest of the city alone.
They should also see that a few col
ored men are appointed, not that they
directly contributed to his election,
but because they did indirectly.
Those who think the influence which
the press wields isot little, it any, ben
efit to those whose cause it advocates
«re sadly mistaken. Since our re
sentment of the audacious lie thrust at
the colored voters of Madison, their
political sky has grown clearer and
clearer, until at last their recognition,
in such places as they are capable of
tilling, has actually come.
The captain of the steamship Nebo,
Crx arriving at New York last Mon

thing that was available, even the
dogs and leather of their shoes were
greedily devoured. They were sup
plied with provisions and sent on
their way rejoicing.
It is said that the widow of John
Urown lives on a ranchc in San Jose,
California, in poor and needy circum
stances. If this be so, shame be on
this nation. It has vindicated the prin
ciples advocated by this heroic martyr
because they were just and right, now
it suffers his widow to eke out a mis
erable existence in the wilds of the
West. If this Government will not
take hold of the matter, we call upon
the five million freemen, for whose
liberty this hero willingly and cheer
fully sacrificed his fife, to contribute
their means to place his widow above
want in her declining age.
The Rev. Dr. Floyd, who came to

The Misses. Harris gave an exceed
ingly pleasant reception at their resi
dence, Mount Look Out, on Thursday
evening; of last week. It was compli
mentary to Mr. William Fielding of Cin
cinnati, who was here visiting his friend
Mr. F. S, Delany. Among the several
pleasant features of the reception, were
the literary exercises, in which nearly
all present took apart, Mr. Fielding
leading oil'in a declamation which wir
rendered in line stjte. Al.ss. Maria
Shannon was called upon to read a se
lection from Burns. She responded to
the call in her usually free and easy
manner, and it is not an exaggeration
when we say, her rendition of the piece,
was a paragon of excellence. The other
par ticipants did well, and deserve some
thing more than a passing notice; hut
our short space, and want of time, for
bids. Refreshments were served about
ten o clock, and the following toasts
were prQposed, and responded to; “our
hostesses,’* Mr. W. Frank Anderson;
“our honored guest,” Mr. J. C. Allen;
“fhe ladies ” Mr. K. S. Delany; “tho
ladies,” Miss Gsrtrude Harris; “Our
Country,” Mr. T. J. Wilson; “Spring,”
Miss Klla Harris; "Tho city of Madison”,
Mr. William Fieldiug.of Cincinnati.
Mr. Fielding’s response was, what may
be termed a happy hit; he referred to
his visit here as one of the most pleas
ant he had ever made anywhere, and
said that when far away, he would not
forget the city of Madison, her hos
pitable citizens in general, nor her
chaiining ladies in particular. The re
ception lasted until a late hour and was
grand success in every respect.
Mr. F. S. Dclanv did the handsome
thing by his Cincinnati guest. He
has evidently “been there before.”

the place made vacant. By Saturday
a young army of others were clamor

was indecent enough to join in the

We define Catarrh to be a chronic in
tlamation of the mucous membrane of
the body. This membrane lines all the
cavities of the body, which connect by
outlets with its surface, and is endowed
with a much lower sensibility, and is
less liable to Le affected by irritants than
other membranes • Rut when once the
seat of disease, irritated from any cause,
it is capable of inflicting very severe suf
ferings. . t
Nasal Catarrh is, perhaps, the best ex
ample, and the most dillicult to cure
Out Nasal Catarrh is curable, even in its
worst form. Indeed, as far as observa
tion goes, the remedy which we offer
the publichas proved equally effective
in breaking up cases of long standing
and of recent origin. And though hun
dreds have taken oar remedy (many, of
whom have now been cured for years)
without a return of the complaint,yet we
have never met with an instance where
it failed to give instant and permanent

both constitutional and local. It em

every one suflering from the complaint,
