Matilda Heron. from ih' Sew York Tribune. The death ot Matilda Heron, though not a deprivation to the stage, is an event that reminds us very sensibly of what the fctae once possessed, in her bright days, and of what it long since lost, in the Bad decadence of her mind. Twenty years aso, when Matilda Heron cauie forward in the character of Camille. if bhe was not a great artist, she certainly was a very re markable examples of elemental power. She had a wilducss of emotion, a force of bruin, a vitality in embodiment, and many indefinable magnetic qualities, that so combined to make her exceptional among human creatures. Those who saw her then saw a woman unusual for persona! charms strong and fine in physique, with dark hair, dark eyes, aud a beautiful white complexion but more unusual for an electrical sympathy uf temperament that captivated every heart. Miss Heron was never more at her best than in Camille. She appeared in other parts, but that was tho part she aiwaya acted; and, though it is true that she may have somewhat re fined upon her method iu alter years, she never acted it better than at first. It afforded the agonized and agonizing situa tion whieli alone could serve for the utter uuce of her tempestuous nature. Once, in later times, speaking to an author about a play that she wished to have written for her, she was careful to state that the hero ine must be a ' lost woman." No doubt the koew, as everybody knows, that a woman lost is not a particle more dra matic than a woman found; but she loyed tha storm and revel ed in tho reckless agony of a nature that is at war with itself, More than almost auy other woman we can call to mind upon tho stage, Matilda Heron knew what it is to love, and what it is to Buffi-r through the truth or through the consequences of that awful and tremen dous passion. V hen, in the first act of uamuie, she used to rush forward aud sob out the exclamation, "Respect ms- and in this house," she made the heart of every man who heard her stand still in hia bosom; and when she parted from the lover whom she never meant to see again in this world, her agony was so great and so real that few men could look upon its exhibition. Hers was not, perhaps, the power of the imagination that seizes upon an ideal and enables the artist to rise out rf this actual world and embody a crea ture of the poetic brain, like Lady Mac beth but hers, beyond all doubt, was the human woman's heart, that had sounded every depth of passion and could embrace all possible experience of woman in that world of love which is so essen tially her own. And while she was thus human and passionate in fiber, she was wierd and fascinating in her individuality. All her ways were her own and the eve followed her with a strange kind of delight at absolute newness and formidable sincer- ity. one oiten iaued to satisfy the in tellect, with reference to classic forms of ancient literature, or to set molds of mod ern character. Her Medea, for example, was half a prowling maniac and half a reckless slouch with now and then a clean) of fateful fury, like fire that streams through the suddenly opened mouth of the volcano; and her Edith, and Sybil, and Ueratdme were erratic and bizarre fig ures, only to be remembered tor strong and surprising points. But no spectator of her acting ever, till her powers were on tho wane, missed the sense of an orig- inai. vigorous, priiuant and startling per sonality. She was an actress of the pas sions and of the passions in their univer sal ebb and now. Ihissort or a nature. unless it be curbed by a prodigious mora sense and intellect, inevitably breaks al the bounds of a serene life. Matilda Her on s career nas been lull ot trouble and sorrow. It is easy to say that she brought them upon herself; it might be wiser to say that Heaven, which made her what she was, ruled the event to its own ends; it certainly is truthful to say that she wrougut me laoor ot tier lite with a pro lound, earnest, passionate, and virtuous sincerity; that she touched in thousands ot hearts, the spring of gentle charity tnat she dealt a blow which has staggered alike the canting sensualist and the canting rnansee; and with all her faults and fail ings, tha; she leaves the memory, not alone of one of the greatest elemental forces in the dramatic art, but of a large neartea. tender, magnanimous woman Yesterday, in the Little Church.which has become so justly dear to the dramatic pro- t .1 t r 1 . . lession, me puriai service was said over her remains; and from that place with all the honors that love and sorrow can offer the ashes of this dead genius were taken to the grave.

M?LANE'S CELEBRATED LIVER PILLS, FOR THE CURB OF Hepatitis or Liver Complaint, DYSPEPSIA AND SICK HEADACHE. Symptoms of a Diseased Liver. T)AIN in the right side, under the edge I of the ribs, increases on pressure sometimes the pain is in the leltside; the patient is rarely able to he on the lelt side ; sometimes the pain is felt under the shoulder-blade, and it frequently ex tends to the top of the shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken for a rheumatism in the arm. The stomach is affected with loss of appetite and sickness ; the bowels in general are costive.sometimes alterna tive with lax; the head is troubled with pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy sensation in the back. tart. There is generally aconsiderable lossof memory, accompanied with a painful sensation of having left undone something which ought to have been done. A slight, dry couch is sometimes an attendant. The patient complains of weariness and de bility ; he is easily startled, his feet are cold or burning, and he complains of a prickly sensation of the skin; his spirits are low ; and although he is satished that exercise would be beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely summon up fortitude enough to try it. . In fact, he distrusts every remedy. Several of the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases have occurred where few ot them existed yet examination of the body, after death has shown the liver to have been ex tensively deranged. AGUE AND FEVER. Dr. C. M?Lane's Liver Tills, in cases of Ague and Fever, when taken with Quinine, are productive of the most happy results. No better cathartic can be used, preparatory to, or after taking Quinine. We would advise all who are afflicted with this disease to give them a fair trial. . For all Bilious derangements, and as a simple purgative, they are unequaled BEWARE OP IMITATIONS. The genuine Dr. C. M?Lane's Liver Pills are never sugar coated.

"Let me have tiree boxes of your pills by return mail, for Chills and Fever." I hav over B'jO such testimonials as these, but want of space compels me to conclude. For Cutaneous Disorders, and all eruptions of the Bkia, the Ointment is most invaluable. It does not heal externally alone, hut penetrates with the most searching effects to the very root cf the evil. HOLLOWAY'S PILLS Invariably cure the following diseases: DISORDER OF THE KIDNEYS.

THERE ARE MANY ACCI BENTY AND FIRES I which occur from the use of the ordinary sul phur and parlor matches. Either kind of these matches ignite readily upon any surface. To pre vent fire or accidents, which are liable to occur from their careles-t use KPHRAIM SMITH, filit St. John St., Philadelphia, invented a match known as "Pennsylvania Safety Match," which needs only oue trial for the public to know Its Importance. Its peculiarity is that it cannot, be ignited except on the special preparation furnished with each box. They do not emii any disagreeable odor or make any startling, crackling sound on being ignited. They contain ueither sulphur nor phosphorus, neither are they poisonous. Another important point is that they are perfectly safe in the hands of children : and the rats and mice carry ing them off can do no damage. Mr. Smith also manufacturers a special rubber io be placed near match safes, thereby making these matches as con venient as those which ignite on any surface. With these improvements they are very desirable for private dwellings (and business bouses in whith combustible matter is kept. In case one should be dropped on the floor there would be no danger of its burning the carpet or igniting i by any acciden tal means. Grocers have them for sale.

But the body of the Kngle Anvil being of crys tallized iron, such settling cannot occur; and the steel face therefore remains perfectly true. Also, it has the great advantage, that being of a more solid material, and, consequently, with lees re bound, the piece forged receives the FULL effect of the hammer, instead of a part of It being wasted by the rebound, as with a wrought irou Anvil. More work can therefore be done on this Anvil with a hammer one-fifth lighter than required for wrought iron Anvil which is more elastic.
