To Ex-Candidates .—We contemplate

bnt as we have charged less for

not care to divide the printer's fees with
a collector. We especially invite to this
notice the attention of those who were
so profuse in their promises to pay for
the printing of tickets, when we had
to «»fuse to print tickets for others who
were willing to pay the cash, in order
that we might accommodate them.
All sporting news are welcome to our
columns in this dull season Avhen there
is, a dearth of anything interesting
either political or literary to fill our
space, so our readers may judge how
smilingly and pleasantly we welcomed
the intelligence which reached our sanc
tum that nine of the most celebrated
«jïortsmen in our parish were deter
mined at the sacrifice of personal com
fort at home to brave the hardships and
dangers of a camp hunt in the depths of
Toulouse Swamp. We have by diligent
inquiry among the gentlemen who com
posed the hunt, been able to learn a
few of the leading incidents which be
fell them on their venturesome expe
dition.
AH the different professions of our
town were represented except that of
an M. D., from a lawyer to an auction
eer. Horses were saddled early in the
evening, blankets buckled on, guns
cleaned, a parting "smile" was taken,
and'fttrtW a thnnsand " good i»ck boys,"
or "donf forget- to seftd me a half a doz
en «lucks when you return," etc., etc.,
the gallant hunters turned tlieir backs
ujKMi civilization and their faces to
ward the unexplored depths of Toulouse,
Swaoip.
It is rumored that there was a horse
race between two of the membere on
their journey that evening, hut what
time was made, or who beat, we have
not found out. An empty cabin was
found upon the borders of the swamp,
and as evening shades were approach
ing, the hunters determined to camp
for the night. A large fire was soon
blazing cheerfully upon that deserted
hearth, and » merrier group than that
wliieh surrounded it would be hard to
find. It was not long before the "chief
cook " of the expedition announced that
supper was ready, and it needed no sec
ond invitation to cause every man to
draw around the smoking oven aid
test, the «lnality of viands which con
sisted chiefly of partridges, snipe and a
few ducks killed by the patty while en
route to the hunting ground. Supper
being over, cigars were lit, tales Veto
told, battle fought over again, and many
a joke repeated, until each and every
member were wrapped in the arms of
Morpheus. An alarm of "fire" was
given during the night, caused by the
catching of the wood-work around fltè
chimney. There were several members
of our gallant fire company among the
party who quickly showed themselves
equal to the emergency. The fire w^s
soon extinguished but sleep had forsaken
the house ; so the boys spent the balance
of the night in shooting at imisquitoes fly
ingabouttheToomwithldouble-barrelled
shot guns loaded with No. 4shot. They
killed a few.
At day dawn each man separated from
the others and took Ms way into the
swamp. It was not long after daylight
liefere the crack of shotguns were heard
ini every side, and not many hours before
each man came staggerin g toward camp
with more ducks thau he could conven
iently carry. A late breakfast was
horses were re-saddled, and with
sad hearts, à feeling of reluctance to
leave that ** Happy Hunting Ground,"
their horses.covered with ducks, and
themselves with glory, they turned
homewards, and as the sun sank behind
the hills, they made tlieir triumphal en
try into town amid thecheersof the citi
xens. They spent the evening in dis
tributing their game among their friends.
Our thanks are due to the gentlemen
for the string of ducks received at this
office. Hurrah for the greatest hunt of
the season !
N. B.—That malicious old fellow that
started the report on the street, that the
only thing killed was one duck, and that
the boys had nothing to cat but wood
peekers, and hist, but not least, that they
watted on the outskirts of town until after
fork, und then, without any noise, crept
in the back-door of their respective
domieils, had better keep out of the way
for a few days, or he might accidentally
leave a family unprovided for, as our
Boys wont stand nonsense.

The Two Mares.
record of goldsmith maid's axd lu
Cl'S performances during this
tear's trotting season.
I From the fan Francisco Call. Nov. 1.]
Now that the great races are over, and
those wonderful trottera, Goldsmith
Maid and Lucy are about to leave Cali
fornia, most likely forever, a short re
view of their travels aud performances
during the past racing season will, no
doubt, be acceptable to the readers of
the Call.
They (thetwo mares) commenced their
trotting season on the 7th of June last,
at Suffolk Park,Philadelphia, when they
contended for a purge of $500. The race
was won by the Maid, in three straight
heats. Time : 2:2jfe—2:22£—2:22$.
On the 12th offline Lucy trotted Jay
Gould, for a pit 1 ? - of $300, Lucy going
to wagon, the.'fîbrse in harness. Jay
Gould won the race in three straight
heats. Time: 2:24^—2:271—2:35. Be
tween the beats of this race the Maid
was speeded for the gratification of the
spectators, doing a mile in 2:18J.
On the 19th of June the mares again
contended for a purse of $5000 at Mystic
Park, Boston, the Maid not only winning
in three straight heats, but making at
this race the fastest time ever trotted ;
the time, being 2:21, 2:16}, 2:l-9f. During
the second and tastest heat the Maid
was in the hands of the veteran trainer
and driver, W. H. Doble, the father of
the gentleman whom Californians have
known as the Maid's driver. It was his
fifty-sixth birthday. Whether the mare
knew it or not we cannot say ; but, at
any rate, she determined to make him a
proud man for life by trotting under his
guidance the fastest time on record ; and
a very lively evening was passed by the
Doble family in consequence.
On the 27th of the same month, at
Prospect Park, Brooklyn, the Maid again
won a purse of $0000 from Lucy and
Henry. American Girl was entered, but
drawn before the race commenced. The
Maid won, as usual, in three straight
heats, Lucy secoud all through. Time :
2:17i, 2:19, 2:17i ; these being the fastest
consecutive heats on record.
The 9th of July saw the two mares
beaten by American Girl for a purse of
$5000, at Fleetwood Park, New York.
Both mares were badly off, the Maid so
much so that she was withdrawn at the
end «i the second heat. Lucy was second
in all three heats. The fastest time made
in the race was 2:19$.
At. Cleveland, on the 19th of July, the
selfsame annimals met again, but with
a very different result—the Maid win
ning a purse of $4000 from American
Girl and Lucy, in three straight heats ;
Lucy second all through. Time : 2:19—
2:18—2:19.
From Cleveland they traveled to Cin
cinnati, where at the Buckeye Track,
the two mares, Lucy and the Maid, con
tended, on the 26th of July, for a purse
of $3000, which was won, as usual, by
the Maid, in three straight heats. Time :
:19—2:17^—2:21.
The 9th of August found them at Buf
falo, to contend for a purse of $10,000.
Four were entered, the Maid, Lucy,
American Girl and Henry. Great cx
iteiuent and a great deal of bettingtook
ilace on the race, which was attended
jy an immense number of people, the
track being crowded on all sides. Here
Lucv w on her first and only race before
her late contest with Occident, having
been second in all former struggles.
Four heats were trotted, and it is allowed
on all hands that tins was the hardest
contested race on record—Lucy winning
the first iu 2:18±, American Girl the sec
ond in 2:17£, while the third and fourth
heats were taken by Lucy in 3:194 and
2:22.
J~)u leaving Buffalo, both mares were
,uing and unable to perform tlieir en
proceed on their Western
journey, and arrived at Sacramento after
twelve days on the cars.
The rest of their exploits are soon told.
The recent races are still fresh in the
memories of such of the public as take
any inte restât all in fast trotting.
()a the 28th of September, both mares
contested at Agricultural Park, Sacra
mento, for a purse of $10,000. The stokes
were won by the Maid in three straight
heats, in 2:20, 2:17i apd 2:23. The an
nouncement of 2:17i was received with
great cheering, that being the fastest
time ever made on California soil.
The 5th of October saw them at the
Agricultural Park of this city, and gay
was the aspect of the Cliff House road
on that day. The Maid again won the
money ($1000) in 2:25,2:18* and 2:22. The
second heat of 2:18} being the fastest
time ever made on a half mile track.
At Sacramento, on the 16th, the Maid
netted another $10,000 by beating the
California horse easy in three straight
heats. Time s 3:20J—2:20i—2:22.
Tlie last performan<ä<» was on Wednes
day. when Lucy won $7500 by beating
Occident in two heats, the lio^-, break
ing badly on the second heat and being
distanced. Time; 2$G.
The mares leave for the Ea*t in a day
or two, but the exact time is not yet
fixed, and it is to be hoped that they will,
have a good journey home and keep
clear of the liorse disease. Their dri
vers, Messrs. Ilickok and Doble, will,
we are sure, have a lively and pleasant
remembrance of California every time
they put their hands in their pockets.

 Jubilee for the Married.
A California court lias j ust decided that
no marriage performed over three miles
from shore is legal, aud this decision is
said to have "fallen like a bombshell"
among scores of families in that State.
People not living in California natu
rally ask why such a decision was made,
and also why it should fall like a bomb
shell among any families whatever.
The reasons for the decision, and also
for its startling effects, are to be found
in the fact that eloping and romantic
couples in California have been in the
habit of going out to sea to lie married.
A domestic difficulty, involving ques
tions of property having arisen in the
courts, the counsel for one of the par
ties raised the point of law that, as the
jurisdiction of the State extends but
three miles from the shore, the powers
of clergymen and justices become va
cated when they go beyond that line ;
and consequently, that all couples whose
marriage «ceremonies were performed
beyond the jurisdictional line, are in
fact not married at all. The court sus
tained this point, and hence the con
sternation in so many families. It
is stated that there was a good deal of
re-marrying, as soon as this decision be
came known. But the greatest dis
may is said to exist among those who
felt themselves secure in relations
which the other party, in the light of
experience, will not likely seek to re
new now that they are declared null.
Many wives and many husbands have
suddenly grown very tender and lov
ing toward partners of whom they have
been rather neglectful for years." And
the sudden awakening of old and slum
bering loves by the danger of losing
their objects, has suggested to observ
ers the query whether it would not
be advantageous and advisable to have,
at certain regular intervals, a grand
year of Jubilee for married people at
which the "bond could go free." Goethe
the great German poet and phlosopher,
thought that marrying for periods of
five years would be good for the reason
that it would have the effect to make
each partner to a marriage contract
solicitous to treat the other so that they
will desire to continue it for another
five years ; while those who were enter
ing unhappy could have a chance of es
cape, and would only sink five years of
their lives in misery instead of their
whole lives, as now if they happned to
make a mistake in those days iu which
their hearts and heads were green.
Among the inventions for which pat
ents have recently been obtained in the
United States are the following : A de
vice for attaching buttons to clothing
■with a screwdriver ; an attachment to pi
anos, so that the strings may be touched
mid-lengtli by a pedal movement, and
sounds similar to a violin or guitar, ob
tained: a child's carriage, so arranged
when the handles are dropped a pawl
stops the wheels and arrests motion at
once, and when grasped the pawl is re
leased; a pencil shaipener that also oper
ates as a handle for stumps of lead pen
cils ; breastpins and earrings, with tubes
to hold artificial flowers ; an apparatus
for drawing on boots, consisting of a
strap passing round the body below the

What we Breathe .—A full-sized
man takes into his iuugs at each breath
about a pint of air ; while in there, all
the life-nutriment is extracted from it ;
and on its being sent, out of the body, it
is so entirely destitute of life-giving
power, that it rebreatiled into the lungs
again, without the admixture of any pure
aiy, the individual would suff ocate, would
die in sijty seconds. As a man breathes
eign
about eighteen tinjes a jpjftPt 6 » an< l a
pint at each breath, he consumes pyer
two hogsheads pf air every hour, of
about sixteen hogsheads during thé
eight hours of sleep ; that is, if a man
were put in » room which would hold
sixteen hogsheads of air, be would, du
ring eight hour's sleop ? extract from it
every atom of life-nutriment, and would
die at the end of the eight hours, eveu
if each breath could be kept to itself,
provided no air came into the room from
without.

Moral Contagion
Moral contagion, being a natural phe
nomenon, is consequently one ot' the
laws to which God has subjected all
created things. We succeed in the dis
covery of this law by analyzing moral
facts aud by studying the circumstan
ces in which they occur, in the same
manner as we succeed in discovering
the laws which preside over the phe
nomena of the physical and organic
worlds, by studying perseveringly the
facts appertaining thereto, as well as
the conditions in which they are pro
duced. Now, the conclusion to be
drawn from the facts which we have
related is forcibly this, which .will re
present the law that has directed the
commission of these acts: Every man
ifestation of the instincts of the mind,
of the sentiments and passions of every
kind, excites similar sentiments and
passions in individuals who are capable
of feeling them in a certain intensity.
This law explains how a certain act
may affect some and not others. One
could not better compare man's moral
nature than to a sounding-board. The
sounding of one note causes vibrations
in the same note iu all the boards which,
being susceptible of emitting, are in
fluenced by the sound emitted. In the
same way, the manifestation of a sen
timent» of a passion, excites the same
instinctive element in every individual
susceptible, by his moral constitution
of feeling more 01 less acutely this same
instinctive element.
If this law acts beneficially in afford
ing us the means of putting into ac
tivity, of exciting and strengtlming by
good example, tlie higher sentiments of
man, it also becomes a source of evil in
causing moral perversion by the influ
ence of bad example, by the recounting
of criminally immoral acts, which vivi
fy, incite, strengthen the evil instincts,
sentiments, passions, of the man whose
natural moral, is already below par. It
is necessary, therefore, to take this law
into serious consideration, in order that
it may operate as much as possible for
good, and remove as far as possible
those circumstances which tend to make
it the source of evil. And these hitter
circumstances occur too frequently in
our day, by the relation of hideous
crimes with which all the newspapers
are filled, and particularly those which,
by their low price, are intended to be
read by the lower classes. If the re
cital of immoral, criminal acts is not
dangerous for individuals of good parts,
who from their mental constitution
reprobate these acts with horror, who
have only an aversion of what is bad,
it is incontestible that, for those mor
ally deformed, in whom tendencies to
evil are very powerful, easily excited,
or already developed, either by their in
herent activity, or by the corrupting in
fluence of immoral surroundings, and
in whom the moral sentiments which
are antagonistic to the depraved ten
dencies are feeble or absent—it is iu
contestible, I say, aud I have brought
forward numerous facts in evidence
thereof, that the publication of crimi
nal acts is very dangerous to public
morality and security, because it stimu
lates in these individuals the same de
praved tendencies which had occa
sioned these crimes, and awakens
those sentiments, those penchants, those
passions ; and the desire to commit
similar aets then appears. Now, in
such morally-deformed individuals,
who form the unfortunate dregs of so
cie'ty, a class which is constantly re
newed, and of whom the source is nev
er exhausted, the recital of such acts
becomes to them a cause of crime, and
consequently a cause of danger to so
ciety.
These individuals, abnormally cou
structed iu the moral part of their na
ture, real moral idiots, though perhaps
very intelligent, physically well-devel
oped, and in good bodily condition ;
these individuals whom the public des
scribe as heartless, whom magistrates,
before whom they appear on various
charges, accuse of being destitute of
human feeling s these individuals in
whom criminal tendencies are not com
manded by the sentiment of moral du
ty, by moral perception, by religions
feelings, and by other noble instincts of
humanity ; these individuals who con
sider their immoral and hideous desires
without abhorrence, and whom crime
leaves unmoved and without remorse,
who in way of regret, feel only what
injures the success of tlieir undertakings
at being captured and punished—these
individuals, I say, will be tempted to
cpinnpt crime if an evil fjesire excited
by example becomes more powerful
than their other better feelings which,
wlnle they predpminated, restrained
any criminal tendencies which these
persons might have experienced. This
miserable scum of humanity so danger
ous society, which produces exclusively
ail the greatest criminals, and to which
wehave directed too little attention up to
the present time, ought to be explored
to the bottom.—-[Journal of Mental

A negro man was driving a team, con
sisting of two horses and two mules, at
tached to a wagon, the driver being up
on one of the horses, with a sheepskin
under him. A rain was coming up, and
he was driving in a trot to escape the
threatened storm. A negro boy was on
the wagon. When within a few hundred
yards of the barn the team was struck
by lightning. Three of the animals
were instantly killed, and the fourth
died within an hour or two. The negro
man was thrown oft", eonsideraly shocked
but not seriously hurt. He says his head
felt like it was a fire, but he does not
think he was rendered insensible. The
boy on the wagon, seeing the wagon had
stopped, looked up, and observing that
the horses were killed, made as good
time as he could for the house, badly
frightened. The escape of the driver,
under the circumstances, is certainly
very remarkable. The team killed was
a tine one, worth about $600.—[Lebanon

The War nil«« ban been H eeded.—Since
the exposure of the attempts made by certain
unscrupulous local dealers, to palm off their
■oarse astringents, made from cheap and im
pure materials, in the place of the great na
tional tonic, Hostetter's Stomacli Bitters, publie
opinion ha« set. strongly against these empirics
»lid their preparations. Their occupation is
scone, or soon will be. When the light is let into
deception it soon wilts down. Persons who
trifle with their own health, byusiug unknown
preparations, with no guarantee to sustain
them, when an established specific, proven by
twenty years experience tobe exactly what it is
claimed to be, is within their reach, are sure to
repent-tbeir temerity. Many have done soin
this instance, but it ia hoped that the truth
plainly spoken has arrested the evil. Iu the
meitntirue, the demand for the leading pro
tective and restorative medicine of America was
never so great as it has beeu this season. From
the fever and ague districts of the west, south
west, and south, it is literally overwhelming,
and it may be said of the advices from all parts
of the country of the cures it is effecting in
dyspepsia, bilious complaints, and ohropip con
stipation, that " their name is legion." Every
where the sick and feeble seem to have realized
the importance of " holding fast that whicWs
good,'* and of avoiding what is serious and
dangerous.
The numerous "Bitters," under various names
which mercenary dealers endeavor to substitute
for Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, should be
avoided, for their own sake», by the sick and
