"Thame God for Friends !" We feel to rejoice that our humble effort In zpoeiog iniquity in high placet In oor city, Is being dnly appreciated by our religions, morel and . Uw-abiding citizens as the hearty greeting and warm handsraap, and earnest word of cheer and encouragement, from many frieade, who hare stood by us for yetra, and new ones who have gathered around ns, Abund antly, testify. Thus sustained in our humble efforts for the right- thus upheld In battling for princi pie again corruption and infamy, at the head Of oar city government thus rewarded by the . "well done" of our best fellow-citizens, we shall, by the help of God and a good coseeience, go-ahcad; slwaya endeavoring to keep the glorious motto, that has floated at the mast head of our unpretending sheet for many years: -"Bit just , and feab hot !" and doing our best to "it i au ine enas we aim at be our God's, our Country' and Truths, We may not come up to this pure motto at all times; but it is our index guide and we will always be found trying to lit a up to it. Again we aay, "with fervency of soul: "Thank God for Iriendt." Z3T In the last Telegram, Mayor Bennett rushes into print with a "vindication" and the recorded at tempt he made, before tho grand jury, to indict- his friend Case for perjury which .so signally failed, an will fail the Mayor's special pleading," which he styles a vindi cation ; notwithstanding the Stir face help he receives from the edi tor of the Telegram. We feel at liberty to have our say in this mat ter, and shall take occasion to do so hoping to put the Bennett Case matter to rest. Cohtbstbd Election. We in tended to give the result of the Gooding-Wilson contest this week; but for want of room defer it until our next issue, ' when, in the lan guage of oar Germanic friends, we'll try and make a " Good ding" of it. THE CONTESTED CASE. The Shelby Republican of the 1st, has the following notice of this case: "Judges Wilson and Gooding were in this city the first two days of the present week look ing up 'irregularities,' in the vote cast in this county at the October election for Congressmen, to be used as evidence in the contest pending between these gentlemen for a seat in the XLII Congress. So lar as we have been able to learn (we were present and heard all the testimony) Gooding did not make a single point, while Wil eon bagged mine illegal votes, and proved gross irregularities suffi cient 10 araw eiohtt-sbven moke votes from Dave's 'pile.' In the language of Dave's special friend and counsellor, 'Dave Gooding's a durned fool to have commenced oontestinV" Rkv. A. 8. Kinnan. We cannot tell when we were more highly gratified at hearing of tho marked success of any one, in the good work of assisting In . the salvation of souls, than we were when we received a letter detailing our friend Kinnan'a wonderful success. Truly, exclaimed we, ''God works in 'a mysterious way his wonders to perform," and this thought has a tendency to put to Sight the idea that He would . use an instrument in His work that was unworthy Mr. E's labors in Michigan, "has been abundantly blessed 653 per sons sought the prayers of Chris tians, and united with the Church At Lima, "daring 58 hours, there were 201 accessions to the church.' We thank oar friend II . for send ing us glad tidings like the above. The Legislature. This body, having spent much of its time in frivolous foolishness, such stuff as would natarally be introduced or engineered by such a man as Hughes.has not completed any im portant business of general inter est. Nearly two hundred bills have been introduced in ttye Senate and three hundred in the House. These are pushed ahead like a mountain of snow and at the closo of the session the members will iauover it in contusion, jno one can predict what will pass. There are many good bills : before the body. There IsTsi little legislation on several subjects that is much needed. We hope it will be done but it is not at all certain that It will be. Kokomo Tribune. The only news from Paris of in terest Is, that the Orleans Princes will be candidates for place in the Assembly to be chosen on the 8th instant. BTOMEKs.--Thcre js, in every community, a class of local bum mers whose specialty is to gather round store stoves in the evening, and soandal as naturally as an old maid's. Hour - after hour, and night after night they shove their lazy carcasses from goodvboxes to counters and back again, t mil, like a setting hen whose feathers have dissppeared from long continued incubation, these brimmers find an important part of their pantaloons missing. Then, for anight or two there was a vacant place on a dry ' goods box.' Then a " curious ey might discover a lazy, disconso late - looking chap tucked up in oea, while his wife was putting a new seat in his trousers. Then comes the reappearance) A train the ' worthless lounger begins his naiinonrly pilgrimages from box ,lo counter, and from counter to nail keg. And what an extensive range of thought, and what enno bling ideas occupy his time! EveYy tale or petty scandal, every little fault of a neighbor, every misfor tune in the community is blistered by these hegossipa Has a lady in crossing a muddy street, lifted her skirt half an inch above her. gait ers, some of these human caterpil lars hare taken notice of the fact, and learnedly descant on the size of her ankle and the number of her shoes. Smutty stories, vile jokes, horse races and dog fights are sandwiched in between the thick slices of (own scandal Talk of an old maid's tongue! One of these masculine, dry-goodn-box . . . . gaDoiers can utter, more gossip in one hour than a dozen spinsters can in a week. The nroDer dace for an unmarried-man, evenings, is from one to two feet (according to the length of his arm) from his sweetheart ; and the proper place for a married man. cvenines. is at home with his babies, if he has anv. and if he hasn't, he's "no 'count no waar." Guthrie Vedette. The French have always had a tendency to escuDe nresent trouble by flying. to evils they know not of. ana it is only strange that more of their defeated generals have not tried to evade the consequences of their- disgrace by suicide. But only two or three have resorted to that method of securing - oblivion, during the whole war. General Abel Douay killed himself after the battle of Weissenbourg, and Bour baki has tried it, but with doubtful success. It is a cood sign of re turning reason, for all nations, ex cept perhaps the French, learned some time ago to consider such melodramatic performances as evi dences of extreme weakness. The courago that impels a man or wo man to commit suicide, is no cour age at all. Libel Suits and the Press. The New York Tribune makes the following sensible remarks on thersubject of libel: We heartily hope to see the whole attitude of4the respectable press towards libel suits and the laws against libel changed. Speak ing not merely for the Tribune, but, as we believe, for all the more considerate journals, we hope to see the day when every clear case of malicious libel may be easuy and remorselessly proseca- tea to conviction ana severe pun ishment. The influence and con sideration of the press in New York would to day be immeasur ably greater if within the last year a score of unmistakable and mali cious libels, out of the hundreds which have been printed, hed been prosecuted, punished in damages of from ten to one hundred thous and dollars each, and these dama ges inexorably collected, even at the risk of stopping the papers. We want no immunity for printing libels, and we would be glad 'to see driven out of existence every journal that does want it. We are all liable to errors, and may un wittingly publish the grossest slanders on the best of men. We try to avoid this, and whenever we can see that we have done injust ice we arc glad to make the promptest correction. Whoever, after that, would prosecute lb. libel, is a fool for his pains; who ever, being refused that, prosecutes for libel, ought to succeed; and ought to have the heartiest en couragement from all that part of the press which respects Heel f and deserves the respect of the public. One hundred and eighty thous and prisoners were virtually cap tured in the capitulation of Paris, 1,500 cannon, and 400 field .pieces, and mitraileurs. A foil grown wild cat formed one of the mourners in a funeral at Monroeville, Allen county last week. Its own funeral took place next day. Wood's Household Miqazimb is the cheap, est and best periodical published. It contains a great variety of reading matter, and all its articles an of the highest, moral tone. It numbers among its contributors, some of the best writers in the Unitel States. Every number contains a S100 Prise Story (com plete. Tho February number furnishes much that is excellent. "Mother's Pet," a Prize story, by Mis Waterbury, is very well writ ten, indeed. "Little Judson and his New Mamma,'' contains many lessons for parents The Temperance Story, by Miss Jackson, it full of earnestness and pathos. There are also, articles by Gail Hamilton, Geo.

The following partio. ulart with regard to the terrible accident on the Hudson River railroad, hare been obtain ed from eye witness." The freight train which caused the accident consisted of about twenty-fire cars, most of which carried tanks filled with oil. Before leavii g Albany, every car was carefully in spected by workmen, and no defect was dis coTered. When the train reached the wood en bridge over Wapenger creek, at New Dam- ' burg, about eight miles below Poughkeepse, a sadden shock passed through the entire train, almost throw in j it from (he track. Upon examination it was fcund that the axle of the tenth car bad broken. The car had then broken loore from its couplings, careen ed on one aide, struck against the framework of the bridge, snd lay a total wreck upon the track. Almost at the same moment and lefoie a signal or a note o I warning ctuld be raised the express train which had left this city at 8 o'clock came rushing along at the rate of " thirty miles an hour. The engine struck the wrecked car with terrible force, setting fire to the oil, scattering the inflammable materi al and burning fragments in all directions. The force of the collision instantly threw the engine over the bridge into the "creek. The ice was rery thick at the time, but was unable to bear the weight of the locomotire, which . broke through and tank. The tender of the i engine also fell into the creek. Immediately behind the engine were two ' baggage cars, which were followed by a sleep- j ing car full of passengers. . j The flames from the oil tank set fire to ! these care, which, after striking the wreck, J lell over into the creek a burning mass. It is I said that some of the passengers in the barn- : inff cars Succeeded in leaninir frnm fho ciri. ' time to save themselves from death, but the rest were carried with the ear over the bridge and either drowned or burned to death. The death list by the accident foots up teen passengers and fire railroad employees. Who Goes There ! Mr Editor : The lato feals of the potent trio are quite edifying in the way of lofty, argumentative tumbling. The troupe have secur ed a valuable addition in the per son of the renowned Mr. Jefferson. Indeed, the situation is becoming ! quite critical. The tariff discus-! sion has got to be very salty fishy, . we came near saying. Yolo seems to have given Nolo such a dose of salt as to completely put him (Nolo) hort du combat. The On- ' ondaga Company, also, is in dan ger of being 'put down and with its own salt, too. The Company ' will have to send a barrel of the commodity to Volo by way of a silencer. When it comes it will be marked 'Sunday School Books.' But the victory isn't yet won. Jefferson, 'courageously rushing to the rescue,' rears the fallen banner, names Tork's Island salt, and, in , the lanenace of Cant. Bunsbv. asks : 'Whereby, why not ? I f so, what odds?' Jefferson evidently tbin&s we are in a bad fix because we don't make all of our own salt. Haven' t we got the Atlantic ocean on one side of us, and the Pacific on the other side ? And haven't we got Great Salt Lake, too ? Let's bottle up a little sunlight for fear the sun may get extinguished ! Aio. For the Palladium. THE OLD TEAR AND THE NEW. BY BOCEAFELLOW. 'Tis midnight cow, twelve strokes the secret tell A chili of time has fallen from his throne; A tuedtoti bells peal forth the doleful knell. And yet how few his actual fate bemoan. Thon 'it gone Old Year thy pago at last is sealed For good or ill, thy record has boen made; Thou hast to some, a precious hope revealed; f ur otners, spread oblivions welcome shade. Farewell Old Year! badstthou been kind to me, Mt muse would land thee in a louder strain; . Aad yet, me tliiEks the fault lies not with thee, But lies with fate therefore I'll not com- plain. But now larewell 1 we turn from thee to greet ' A beauteous child, whose life is but begun; 1 Whose laughing eyes and flying curls and . feet, Proclaim thy younger brotbcr.Seve-ty-one. j Hail happy day, that ushers in the year I f Thou nursling in the lap ot of Mother Time I ; My muse cries hail, and could I drop a tear i I'd consecrate with it this Jeeble rbyme. Whilst others laugh, and greet thee with a song, Of sweetest joys, in store for future years, Be it my lot to mingle with the throng, And though the strain be sad, my voice I'll raise. With thy beginning, thousands will begin, And with new enerjrv pursue their gods; Some will commence a course of vice and sin, And some, perhaps, will feel chastising rods. This day new friendships will be formed; and love Love will be felt by bearta that ne'er were thrilled; And kindred ties which time alone can prove broken by the filled. Be heart w:th vengeance All things should try to court appearance new; ASrtc should be nw your pardon Mr. Ed. 1 E'en my old hat-with-holea all through and through, Must sit with jttumet on my brainiest head. New hopes are born, perhaps ere long to die; Fresh aspirations use to sink again- New "forms," new "types" and no doubt fresh "pi," Will dawn upon the luckless printer's brain. We learn from Mr. Leeson, of Centreville, that the religious meeting at Abington, Ind., con-; ducted by Elder Wm. J. Howe, of i tuo uiioiiau vuutvu, 19 onn u progress and that up to Tuesday evening between ninety and one hundred persons had united with the church. Mr. Howe, although young, is a man ol considerable ability snd a forcible speaker. He will labor one fourth of his time daring the present year in our city. Go and hear him.

Four Hundred Feet on n Cotvcatcher Hanging by Thread-It emarkable Ecapc. i Frank Trask, a fireman running on the uight freight train from this city to Providence, had a most rcmaikable escape from death on Saturday night last. As the train wus going on the down grade east from the summit of Bolton Moun tain, he went to the forward part of tho engine to oil the piston The oil is distributed better when the train is going the fastest, and he took this part of the road, vt here the M ain gets its highest speed, to attend to it. By some sudden motion r.f the locomotive . he lost his hold, and was thrown forward on to the cowcatcher, but, instead of rolling off and being dashed to pieces, as be expected, the pilot caught him by a few threads in the Cardigan jacked he had on, so that he was held first with his feet drag ging upon the ground dashing along in that perilous situation from fifteen to twenty miles an hour lie dia not lose nis consciousness nor his presence of mind, but nerved himself to chance for his life, effort he succeeded take the best Oy a desperate in keeping his head raised so thai it escaped the groundthough he was hanging close down, and the least depress ion would dash him to pieces. The engineer, in the meantime, had not discovered the frightful position of his assistant till, thinking 1hat he was gone longer than usual, he looked forward and there saw his shadow, by the light of the moon running a phantom race with the iron horse. In an instant he whistl ed down brakes, and the speed be gan to slack; but in the sudden checking of the train, the tender threads of Trask's jacket broke and he was hurled to the ground pitching over and over; and yet he retained bis self-possession, and when his associates arrived by his side he was as clearheaded as ever ; Ho had noticed the alarm for down breaks, and felt that his position was discovered. He was taken to Willimantie, and brought back to this city by the western train, which reached here at half-past 4 o'clock Sunday morning, and carried - to the residence of his father, No. 39 Walnut street, where Dr. Slorrs was called to attend htm. There were several cuts and contusions on his legs and the lower part of his body, but no fractures, nor anything of a particularly danger ous nature. Two or three months ago he was on the same train, com-' ing from Providence, when the locomotive ran into a turn-table at Willimantie, and then had his arm broken, which has not entirely healed. He says if he had had tho use of both arms be could have extricated himself. From thb Harteord Courant, January 2.J The Evils of Gaming. Much has been said and written of that terrible passion, which, when once it has coiled itself about the heart of man, brings more misery than all other evils combined; which once taken on is seldom taken off and which never leaves the soul until it has blackened it and seared it untie the moth of hope would find itself itreightened in the pangs of starvation 6hould it attempt to bat ten upon it. This by way of a starter. Here is a sad and plain tive story, which is from the lips of a professional gambler: A few mornings ago our inform ant, who has gazed upon the dark side of life until a rainbow, set in beauty in the sky, would have no mere merit in . his eyes than the feed-box of a Cone: toga wagon, left his gambling house, and started home. The snow was slowlj' eddy ing down, filling the uneven streets, and spreading a white rantle of charity over the naked deformities of the town. A few squares from bis establishment, and in the neighborhood of another "gilded palace" sacred to the usages of King Faro, he saw a well-known frequenter of faro-bank, standing under a flickering gas lamp. He held in hi9 hand a printed "tab," such as sinful men ire wont to record the order of a faro deal, and the wretched nan was scanning it with a devotion of a churchman at his rosary. He had been edgaged in that occuprtion for some time, for the snow had drifted about his feet, and was fast obliterating the sable color of Lis boots. He was studying the last play in the pale light of the lamp, and, shivering with cold and chill with the dead currents of excitemert within him, he mutUri'd in anguish to him self: "One hour ago I could have slept in the best bed in the House, now who knows where I'll sleep? Why didn't I play to 'break even' on the last deal? Dead broke, dead boke!" Dead broken, your Majesty. Dead broke, my members of Coun cil and Board of Aldermen. Dead broke, Right Reverends and Wrong Reverends of every order. Dead broke, men born with Heavenly compassion in your hearts. And Dressing dead tuus around us every day. Absent minded people are funny. Sir Isaac Newton wanted his ser vant to carry out a stove that was getting too hot. A fellow stole his dinner before Lis eyes, and he after wards thought he had eaten it be cause he saw the dishes empty.

Having made Uterine Dis eases a specialty he invites those call and examine his new method of ands that have been abandoned as DISEASES OF THE Of all diseases that flesh is heir to, none are so certain to produce death as those of tbe Heart and Lungs. Persons suffering from diseases of the Heart are liable to drop' down deadot any moment, unaware of any more tbaa usual difficulty of breathing, or fatigue. How often do we hear of some friend or acquaintance dying while sitting at bis or ber meal, or found dead in bed; and still more frequently do we hear that such a one bad only slight fluttering at tbe heart; others drop dead while performing some light labor, or with the least excitement; while the invalid suffering from diseases of the Lungs, is slowly but surely dying by inches, without some jtsdicious treatment to aid nature to throw off diseases from the Lungs. To easily cure the above diseases, first requires im mediate attention to every symptom that may present itself, -at the different stages ot the disease; and the treatment should be in ac coidance with each symptom. Thousands Buffer untolt) misery from resorting to un qualified pretenders of the age, who profess to understand the treatment of diseases of the Heart and Lnngs, bnt wbo in reality know but little of the diseases, except a slight knowledge that they hare acquired by read ing the suggestions of some conceited author, whose experience in too many instances has been but meagre at best; many of whom have perhaps never disected tbe Heart or Lungs after death. ' In order to be a successful Etactiticner in the treatment of Heart and ung diseases, requires a constant, extensive practice, to enable tbe person to make a cor rect diagnosis of the disease. This done, he must be well posted in its treatment, since this can only be accomplished by treating many thousand similar cases Thousands of lives are annually sacrificed by the employ ment of unskilled physicians, in the treat ment of diseases of the Heart and Lungs. Bow often do we see and hear of persons almost gone with Consumption in fact, giv en up, by perhaps, a dozen doctors; who, ul timately, by placing themselves under the treatment of some eminent physician, be come healthy and sound, or at all events, as much so as the nature of their disease could possibly admit of. Instances of this kind are familiar to thousands. A consumptive man of means who thinks more of bis health than he does of his money, seldem loses an opportunity of consulting a physician who has attained a high reputation in the treat ment of that particular class of diseases in which he is most interested. Hence it is few of tbis class, comparitively speaking, die for want judicious treatment; at least Itheir life is prolonged in their cases for many years. While on tbe other hand a man of narrow contracted mind who is conceited withal, thinks that bis family or home phy sician, of a particular creed, is fully capable to perform the desired results. Thus he pla ces himself under the care of an experiment er, losing time and health, until finally too late for any human aid; continuing to sink under tbe treatment of cod-liver oil and stimulants, till at last be shufles off this mar tal coil And for what? Just for want of manly independence; a fiee heart; a free purse; and a judicious course of treatment from a physician of experience in treating many thousand similar cases to his own. Dr. BORT would here remark that hit treatment in diseases of the Throat, Lungs, Heart, Catarrh, Deafness and Female Dis eases is entirely different from any other per son in this country.

At Demonstrated on over Twelve' Tkou$amd Invalid; by Dr. Bort, of If. V. There is a healing power among us; a physirion who baa cured thousands in tbis city, after .all other sys tems have been exhausted; a physician who is curing, and further pledging . himself to cure, nearly all cases have ba filed the skill of hundreds of medical men in all past ages and even bids defiance to all modern practice; and lastly there is a physician wbo can pro duce thousands of certificates from some of the most reliable individuals in the city, as well as elsewhere, wbo have been positively and permanently cured after all other treat ment after the most eminent medical men had failed 1 Yes, verily, and that physician is Dr. Bort, whose infirmary is located on the corner of Third A Vine sts., St. Louis. Dr. Bort. we verily believe, has cured more chronic cases in the past luur months, in St. Louis than all the medical men who bave ev er practiced their professions here for those diseases. He makes as specialities, via: Dis eases of the Eye, Ear, Lungs, Throat and Ca tarrb .
