SCHENK'S PCLTIOMC SYCUP Sea Wee: T.-nic, and Mandrake Pillb. These Medicines have undoubtedly performed more cures ol Consumption than any other remedy known 4o tbe American Public. They are compounded of vegetable ingredient, and contain nothing inju rious to the human constitution. Other remedies advertised as cores for consumption, probably contain opium, which is a somewhat dangerous drug in all caeg, and if taken freely by consump tive patients it rouet do great injury; for its ten dency is to confine the m rbid matter in the sys tem, which of course, must make a cure impossi ble. Schenck1 Pulmonis Syrup is warranted not to contain a particle of opium. It is composed of powerful boi harmless herbs, which act upon the lnns.'Hver, stomach and blood, and thns correct a'l morbid secretion, and expet all diseased mat ter from the body. These are the only means by Schenck's Pulmonic Svrno. Sea Weed Tonic and Mandrake Pills are the on'y medicines that oper ate in this way. it is obvious that they are the on ly genuine cure lor Pulmonary Consumption, finch bottle of this invaluable medicine is accom panied by full directions. Dr. bchenck is profes sionally at his principal office, cor. 6th and Arch Street. Philadelphia, every Monday, where all let ters mr advice roust neaaaressea. 1441 VEGETINE! He Says It Is True. Seneca Falls, Jov. 9th, 1876. Mr. H. R. Stevns : Pear Sir As yon are an entire stranger to me want you to know what VEGETINE has done 'or me. Onlv those who have been raised from death's door can know the value of such good medicine. I am 58 years of age. Three years ago was takes with what tbe doctors called Lumba go. For week 1 was confined to my bed. l had hree different pnysiciane without any neip; i re ived no relief; 1 was a great sutterer. Finally became entirelv helpless. The last doctor told me there was no help ; he said be might possibly save mv lite by electing morphine in my arms ana legs. The encouragement for saving my life h) having this done whs so small a chance that I could not consent to ran th risk. About this time inv son read vour advertisement in our pa per, a testimony of a person who had been very sick with anont same complaint ana was enrea. Mv son went right awav to the apothecary store and bought a bottle of VEGETINE. Before I had need the first bottle I found great relief; I could move myself in bjd. After taking three bot tles I was able to sit i.p atd move about ray room. i continued using me vegotme ana i was in a few weeks restored to my former health. The Vegetine saved my life after the phynicians said nere wad no neip tor me 1 navenaa noaocior cince. If I feel unwell I take a dose of vegetine. and I recommend ft to my friends. Your Vegetine ought to be in every family. My doctor was surprised to see roe in good health. tie says vegetine is a goon m-dicine. 1 ten mm it cured me He says " it is true.1 I cannot leel too thankful. Very gratefullv yours.

DECORATION ORATION DELIVERED AT ASHTABULA BY CAPT. J. B. BURROWS. Fellow Citizens The great American re bellion, with the causes that produced it, the passions and animosities it engendered, the heroism it developed, the sacrifices it demanded, the triumph with which it end ed is now so far a thing of tjje past that we ought to be able to contemplate it, in some degree, in the clear and impartial light of history. In the midst of arms not only are laws . silent, but to some extent, reason also. Unreasoning prejudice, unre strained rage and all the furies hold high carnival while war banners are waving, drums beating, bugles sounding, cannon roaring, and contending armies are reap ing the harvest of death. Twelve years ago the sword of war was sheathed. The rust has gathered upon its blade; the grass has covered the graves of its victims; and the scarred and sunburnt warriors who survived th conflict have put away the trappings and instruments of war, and assumined the garb and implements of peaceful industry. And now, when the conflirt is past, the dead buried, the arm ies t&ibunded, peace restored, the contro ywsv settled, the Union made secure we may calmly look back over these terrible years that tried men's souls, and attempt to do justice to all who, in any way, took part in, or were responsible for, ihis de plorable and sanguinary struggle. Let ine say in the outset that I believe that the war eould not have been avoided, or long postponed. No policy of compro mise, or wisdom of statesmanship, no spir it of forbearance could have maintained the Union without the aid of the sword. The South and the North, the slavehold mg and the free States, had become sepa rated by an awful gulf of jealousy, dis trust and hate, long before the separation by force was attempted. They had been divided in sentiment, policy and opinion, long before an attempt was made by force to divide the Union. All coiitiilenci'. kind ly feeling mill fraternal re'iird Imd been destroyed long before the attempt was made bv force to sever the bends that hel us together. Tbey of the Smith had come to regnrd the protection and mnintainance of the institution or slavery as indispensa ble to their prosperity, wjiile we of the orth had come to regard that institution as a curse which we could in no way de fend or approve. The people of the slave States had been educated into the belief that their dearest rights and highest inter ests were involved iu the protection and se curity of slavery, and they therefore stood shoulder to shoulder in its defense; while the people of the North had been educated into the belief that slavery was a disgrace to the nation nnd a crime against humani ty, and they therefore hoped, worked and prayed for its restriction aud early extinc tion. Each year conviction grev stronger on either side. It controlled parties, divided churches, estranged friends, and created more hostility between the two sections of the country than would have been consist ent with friendly -relations and intercourse between separate and distinct nations. How could the war, then, have been avoided? Wise men of the North and South had for a long time seen and sought to avert the coining storm. While a (..lay and a Webster warned the people with the voice of prophesy, others, blinded by prej udice or interest, saw no danger, derided these warnings, and sought to foment and intensify the arroused passions of the peo ple. Uo l go too far when 1 sav tht the war was inevitable? Will not impartial histo ry seek to explain whv it was so long de layed? And will not the explanation lie that both at the North and at the South the prevailing sentiment was held in check by a loyal and conservative minority, who preferred the Union as it wystothe hor-' rorsand uncertainties of civil war? Lin coln and Seward staled but tl.e truth when they said that the conflict between freedom and slavery was irrepressible; that this na tion could not long exist half slave and half free. How well we remember how the conflict of arms commenced, and how the first shot awoke the North to the dreadful realities of an impending war, whose end no man could foresee. And now and here I wish to say, with a firm conviction of its truth, that the South, in attempting to extend and make perpetual theirlnhuman institu tion, in attempting secession and disunion, and in making war upon the government, was wholly without justification or excuse, and wholly in the wrong politically and morally. And that the Nort h, in abhor ringjslavery, in resisting secession and dis union, and in putting down armed rebel lion, was wholly in the right politically and morally. This, I ain satisfied, will be the impartial judgment of history. Thai the people of the South were sin cere in their convictions and were led into secession and war by an earnest purpose to maintain and defend their supposed rights and interests, cannot reasonably lie doubt ed. Their brave conduct on the field of battle, their immense sacrifices, their reso lute perseverance in the contest under ev ery discouragement, give the highest proof of their earnestness and sincerity. The people of the North went into the war animated and inspired with an uncon querable purpose to preserve the Govern ment of their fathers for themselves and children. Impelled by the strongest mo tives that can influence human actions, and contending for the highest stakes known among men, the forces for and against the Union were brought into hos tile array; when the warof words which had raged so long was followed by the march ing columns, the issue was compressed into the single question Shall we remain one Seople, having one government, and one estiny, or must the republic be divided and destroyed? All other sentiments gave way to this. President Lincoln afterward expressed the prevailing opinion at the North, when he said that he would preserve slavery or destroy it as should be necessary for the preservation of the Union. At a later period, the South, when the struggle became desperate for them, would have willingly given freedom to their slaves to have secured the establishment of their confederacy. It was essentially a war on the one side to destroy, and on the other to maintain the Union. Ambition, sec tional pride, sectional hate, interest, senti ment and prejudice, served to bring the whole people into active sympathy and .ef fort on either side. Can we overestimate the importance of the ultimate decision of this question whether we were to be and remain one people, with one government and one flag, or whether our great heritage, our lands, our mountains, our rivers and our States should be partitioned and divid ed? By the wager of battle, that question has lieen settled for ail time. Can there be any doubt that impartial history will pronounce that the quest inn was settled in the interest of good government, in the in terest of peace, in the interest of all the people, North and South, in the interest of fostcrily.and in the interest of humanity? doubt not that the lost cause will stand condemned forever as a bad cause, and that among coming generations there will be no division of opinion upon tins ques tion, in all this laud, from the mountains to the seas. The war had tube fought; great armies recruited; the country con verted into a camp; the land billowed wilh graves, or the star of the republic fall from its high place in the constellation of na tions. It is time we should inquire how the men of '01, the men of the North, ig norant of war. educated. I rained and de voted to the arts and employments of peace, met the mighty responsibilities they were called to fin e. Something more im portant llian Union, something grander than government was involved in the con test the honor of a five and iMiwerf ul peo ple was at stake. The battles might lie lost, and the government shall ered to pieces if they Uxik the field ; but the bat tles could be fought over, the government be rebuilt, or at least a wise and earnest people could in defeat have saved some thing for their children out of the wreck. If they had declined the light, sought safe ty at the sacrifice of honor, and let the old flag lie trailed in the dust, we should not onlv have lieen deprived of our govern ment, but should have been unworthy of a free government. To the lasting honor of ihe men and the times, history will record the-grand uprising of the North, when .Mult-vied with Slate, and the people as liii-man. without stopping to count the cost, came hurrying to the rescue. It was a glorious picture. For such a people there was a future. Nor did hope die or cour age flag as the war went on, and the ranks were decimated and armies destroyed by the poison of disease, the hardships of the campaign, and the carnage of battle. The vacant places in the ranks were filled with men who came from every station in life. singing "W e are coming. Father Abraham, six hundred thousand more." Without compulsion and without complaint, they 1 it moiintains, breasted floods endur ed hunger, fatigue and hardships in every form, man-hed and fought bv night and uay, starved in prisons, and faced death in every iorin, mat -the government of the jieop e, oy ine people, and for the people, .iivuiu uvi iciimi iioiu tne earth. lo the memory of our soldiers who fell in this struggle, a grateful people have dedicated this day. With willing feet we visit their last resting place. v e hope and oeiieve mat tnis uay nas taken a perma nent place in our calendar ol public da and that hereafter it will be hltingly ob served bv coming generations. Were we called upon to declare the cause and sig nificance of this ceremony, what answer should we make? l,To one ignorant of the object and purpose of these processions, music and flowers, in honor of the dead, it wouitt seem strange indeed that we pass Dy, aim lor a time forget, the graves of the pioneers, and others eminent for their woi .h and character, and lav our wreaths auu gariatms on ine mounds whem rest the ashes of those men so brave, so faithful and so true. When we remember who they i i . . .i i-i , ' ncie, aim vtuai tney uia, it aoes not seem inaoiiroiiriHte or PTirRVmmtir rti.tr v. should seek to recount their virtues, recall their deeds, and pay them the highest trib ute of praise and eulogy. Our soldiers were brave men, and we honor them for their valor. They were faithful to their country, and we revere them for their pat riotism, lhey were true to duty and hon or, and we therefore love and cherish them in our heart of hearts, lhey were so loy al devoted and noble that they counted life not too great a sacrifice to be made for duty and country. Can mortal man do more to earn tbe lasting and just approval of his fellow men? How vain it is to at tempt by feeble words, or by any words, to describe the merits of such grand and ex alted conduct! 1 he soldier meeting death with sin cere purpose in a just cause, presents hu man nature in its sublimest aspect. Length of years could have added nothing to their lame. ineir History was complete, their ives a success, their nobility established. their renown secured when they fell facing the foe. By this heroic act they made good tlieir title to the highest honors. io mat ter Irom whose loins they sprung, or in what condition or station of life they were reared, by this heroic act they placed thvir names among those whom the world de lights to honor. Thev have become the comrades of the brave of all ages. I love to think that while our soldiers were cut off in youth and early manhood, and torn from life with all its blessings and endear ment, they have earned the right to the fel lowship of the past, "whose distant foot steps echo down the corridors of time." As he years sweep by, the very names of our soldiers will be forgotten, but the influ enee, the inspiration of their heroic con duct will endure forever. Their deeds are mperishable. Their example will live in fame and story. In the far off future men will be truer and braver as they read the tory that shall tell how they resolved, fought, and died to keep the old nag of the republic in its high place among the ations ol the earth, ine nero dies, wnile eroism is immortal. The brave will be forgotten, but bravery cannot be buried. Who asks for the names of the immortal three hundred who stood in the pass at hermopvla?? Who cares to inquire how they passed their time before the day of their glory? That day made their historv. nd it would be sacrilege to call the least mong them by any other name than hero! W e need aot tear lor the lame ol our lllus- rious dead, though their names are forgot ten and no monument or slab of wood or tone shall mark the spot where they lie. hev cannot be lorgntten in the land tney iod to save. Their exalted patriotism, in estimable services, and heroic examples are a priceless legacy. The nobility and grandeur of true courage cannot be exag gerated. It is the very bones and frame work ol a manly character. Me who dares, is never despised. A brave man in the wrong wins our admiration more than a coward in the right; the world never tires of recounting the deeds of its heroes. The temple of fame itself ts but a monument to their achievements. Intelligence is admir ed; wealth and power respected; justice is revered ; virtue is praised ; but our cniel homage is reserved for those who have faced extreinest danger with lion courage. I have but one word more lor this occa sion. .Let us lor a moment inquire, m view of the historv of our noble dead, the great sacrifices we as a people have made to preserve and perpetuate free govern ment, and in view of the great interests in- olved, what wisdom demands and duty now requires at our hands. We are bound as men and citizens, oy every consiuera- ion of manhood and patriotism, to make it our first duty to secure for our country the full fruits of our triumph. What was gained at such fearful cost should stand as l u.eu auu eiiuuriiis as i"" ureicra ui nic The supremacy of the national government, I the freedom of all, the equality of all be- t . i, I .. ... 1 ...... , ... nwM....tei at i 1I11C LUC mil, LL1CSQ must .bu . . all hazards as the immovable pillars oi tne Republic.

We must endeav or to rekindle the altar fires of patriotism throughout the South. We must forgive, receive and fraternize with our misguided, lefeated and disheartened countrymen, hose hands are red with the blood of our slain. The grace of magnanimity belongs to the victors, and the government has act- 1 a magnanimous part towards its con- uered retiels. It has chosen the course of isdom as well as magnanimity. Fatnot m is not the fruit of compulsion. Love f country cannot be forced into the hearts f a people bv an efficient army and navy. The sword alone cannot make us a united, armonious and peaceful people. Not the people of the South alone, but the people f the .North also, must accept tne situa ion.

Mr. Collins was for some time in charge of important worn on the Bostou and Albany itaiiway. i 1849 he received otters trom Juio, and soon after removed to Clevel.iud and its vicinity, where be wa en gaged in locating the Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati Railway. Shortly afterward he became assis tant in the location and construction of the Cleveland, Painesville, and Ashtabula road. Besides his early connection with the above-mention ed roads he wai at one time in the employ of the Cleveland and Mahon ine Uailwav Company, and often re ceived large offers from the South ern States to take charge of railway construction aud management, but finally accepted the position of as sistant engineer on the Cleveland, Painesville, and Ashtabula road, af terward becoming its chief engineer. On the consolidation of the Cleve land. Painesville. and Ashtabula road with railways east and west. Mr. Collins was elected chief engin eer of the consolidated line and its branches, which office he retained untilhis death. While employed in the construction of the Cleveland, Painesville, and Ashtabula road, he became acquainted with, and mar ried, the daughter of Mr. Edwin Harmon, of Ashtabula, and proved a devoted husband, and also a valued friend and adviser in all his family relations. While in the zenith of a well earned reputation, there came news of the calamity of the 29th of De cember, at Ashtabula. The rela tions of Mr. Collins to the ill-fated bridge have been accurately stated in the evidence taken during the in vestigation. He did not design or build it. It was an experiment with which he was apparently not quite satisfied, bnt he apprehended no dan ger. It had stood the usual tests; it had borne up without developing weakness or flaw for ten years, and had not apparently suffered injury from use. It was his duty certainly to inspect and protect it from deteri oration by natural causes, and this lie undoubtedly did with the same fidelity that he gave to every duty, but did not discover the imperfec tions which after its destruction were palpable enough. When the dreadful disaster hap pened, Mr. Collins hurried to the scene a broken-hearted man. Day and night, almost without food or rest for he could neither eat nor sleep he labored in the snow and ice to recover what the wreck had left of wounded and dead, and to re pair the damage to the road. Al though not held responsible for the disaster, it oppressed him with a weight that he could not shake off. The scenes of that awful night prey ed upon his sensitive nature, and drove him, day by day, nearer to that condition in which the mind breaks down utterly, and insanity results. His testimony before the legislative investigating committee, and the manner in which it was giv en, impressed the committee so fav orably that the examiners annruinced privately, after the conclusion of the session, that their report would en tirely exonerate him. But with that his life-work ended. Turkish Fighting Material. Turkey enters into the war with an available military force not ex ceeding 300,000 fanatics, armed with the best weapons, but very poorly officered; a naval force of about thir teen powerful ironclads and fifty other excellent fighting vessels in good condition, commanded by a mercenary and officered and manned by lazy landsmen; forts provided with the heaviest ordinance, but with no one who knows how to use it; storehouses, arsenals and armo ries stocked with munitions of war, but no organized or efficient means of supplying them to the armies or fleets; an empty treasury, a valueless paper currency, an abominable civil service, a ruler enfeebled by dissipa tion and swayed by favorites, and a large percentage of her people wait ing the opportune moment for shak ing off a slavery -and oppression, without parallel in modern times. Neither British gold nor Irish blood can save her. Her end is approach ing, and one is puzzled at the pecu liar combination of avarice and jeal ousy which has permitted such a power to exist for so long a time. Sttrheox.
