Congressman Cox, of New York,
who was appointed chairman of the
house committee on naval affairs, is
reported to be dissatisfied with the
appointment, and will probably de
cline to serve on that committee. It
is claimed by his friends that twenty
two years' experience in the house
entitled him to the chairmanship of
foreign affairs, a place which he de
sired to occupy as he contemplated
advising a number of reforms in the
line of reducing the number of for
eign ministers, iuvesting consuls with
diplomatic power when necessary,
and improving the consular system
so as to make it a more powerful
agency for the advancement of tho
commercial iuterests of the country.

report that he is dissatisfied with the
chairmanship of the committee on the
expenditures of the department of
justice, as be desired the chairman

from all important committees.
Harrison' Ram ox lived for many
years iu Hinckley, Medina county,
Ohio, and amassed considorable prop
erty, most of which was in cash. He
would not trust his money to the
keeping of a bank, but hid it about his
own premises, keeping the hiding
place secret even from his own fam
ily. A short time ago he told his
wife that he had bidden about $30,000
in money, and that pretty soon he
would inform her of its whereabouts,
so that in case of his death she would
know where to look for it. He neg
lected to do this, and about a week
after he died of apoplexy. After hits
death an examination of his papers
showed that he had 1335,000 in money
all hidden about his premises. The
most thorough search failed to reveal
the hiding place, and the widow began
to despair. Then she was impressed
with the notion that if she prayed
with faith the Lord would direct her
to the place where the mouey was
bidden. On Wednesday she prayed
all day and night. On Thursday
night she was impelled to go to the
beehives, which stood on a bench
near the house, and in ths excitement
of expectation she knocked over one
of the hives, disclosing to her view
the top of a bench with a pile of
greenbacks of large denomination
upon it. A search under the other
hives resulted iu finding a total of
$15,000. In the afternoon one of the
family dropped a bunch of keys
through the barn floor, which necessi
tated taking up a plank to find them,
and when the young man put his
hand down he struck a half gallon
fruit jar, which be pulled out to find
partly filled with $20 gold pieces.
Other jars and a grain bag were also
found containing gold and silver, and
when it had all been counted the total
amount figured up over $213,000. The
widow was overjoyed, and in her
statement to the correspondent said
she believed that the discoveries were
in direct answer to her prayers.

The annu-il dinner of the Now Eng
land Society nt I'tMinsylvauit, was
held tliir) M-aoii at the Continental
Hotel, Philadelphia. Among the
guests were President Arthur, Secre
tary Chandler, Senator Hawiey, Rev.
Dr. Leomrd Wool3ey B:icou. In
response to the toast, "The President
of the United State?," General Arthur
said: "I confess Mr. Chairmm. that
ray enjoyment of this annual dinner
has been somewhat inirred by. the
knowledge. that-1 should be at this
moment dining with my own chapter
of this society, and that it has been an
act or'abmdoniug my brethren of the
New York branch of the society
which has brought me within reach of
your generous hospitality ; but what
difference can it make whether I dine
in Philadelphia or in New York The
president cannot be in both cities at
once. Iudeed, I heard it said that it
ia only a relic that can be in more
than one place at a time, aud surely
no president tihould bo classed a a
relic until he has given his place to
his successor. Last evening I dined
with the New England society of
Brooklyn and the hearty welcomo ex
tended me, so completely bereft me of
thanks to the expressions of pleasure
that this fresh draft on my power
finds me utterly bankrupt. I thank
you very much for the welcome given
roe, aud can only say, 'Long lifo to
your society and its promoters.'"
Secretary Chandler, in responding to
the toast, "The army aud navy," paid
tributes to Generals Grant, Sherman
and Sheridau, and expressed the hope
that "a grateful eougress and williug
president" would restore tho former
soldiers to the rolls of the army. Re
ferring to the navy, he spoke strongly
of what he termed "complete restora
tion," with doing away with all
ancieut ships and smooth-bore guuH
and substituting steel ships and high
power cannon, of which we have not
one single specimen to show. Chand
ler, iu the course of his remark, spoke
iu praise of the steamers of the Amer
ican Steamship Company, as being
the only line of foreign steamers fly
ing tho Amorican flag, whereupon
Shortridgc, director of the American
Steamship Company arose and said
the company were negotiating for the
sale of its ships, as it could not be
made to pay while ruu under the
American flag, but could be under the
ensign of Great Britain. This state
ment was not received with applause.

Has discovered the greatest cure in the world for weakness of the back and limbs
involuntary discharges, impotency, general debility, nervousness, languor, confus
ion of ideas, palpitation f the heart, timidity, trembling, dimness of sight or giddi
ness, diseases of the head, throat, nose or skin, atlections of the liver, lun.s, stom
ach or bowels those terrible disorders arising from solitary habits of vo'iith. and
secret practices more fatal to the victims than the sons,'. ot Syrens to the mariners of
Ulysses, blighting their most radiant hopes or anticipations, rendering marriage
impossible. n
Those that are suffering from the evil practices, which destroy their mental and
physical systems causing
the symptoms of which are a dull, distressed mind, which untits them from perform
ing their business and social duties, makes happy marriage impossible, distresses
the action of the heart, causing flushes of heat, depression of spirits, evil forebod
ings, cowardice, fears, dreams, restless nights, dizziness, forgetfulne.ss, unnatural
discharges, pain in the back and hips, short breathing, melancholy, tire easily of
company and have preference to be alone, feeling as tired in the morning as when
retiring, seminal weakness, lost manhood, white bone deposit in the urine, nervous
ness, confusion of thought, trembling, watery and weak eyes, dyspepsia, constipa
tion, paleness, pain and weakness in the limbs, etc., should' consult me immediately
and be restored to perfect health.
Who baye become victims of solitary vice, that dreadful and destructive habit
which annually sweeps to an untimely grave thousands of young men of exalted
talent and brilliant intellect who might otherwise entrance listening se nators with
the thunders of their eloquence or wake to testacy the living lyre, may call with
full conldence.
Married persons or young men contemplating marriage be. aware of physical
weakness, loss of procreative power, impotency, or any other disqualification speed
ily relieved. He who places himself under the care of Dr. Fishblatt may religiously
confide in his honor as a gentleman, and confidently rely upon his skill as a
Immediately cured and full vigor restored. This distressing affliction which ren
ders life a burden, and marriage impossible, is the penalty paid by the victim for
improper indulgence. Young people are apt to commit excesses from not being
aware of the dreadful consequences that may ensue. Now who that understand
this subject will deny that procreation is lost sooner by those falling into improper
habits than by prudent? Besides being deprived of the pleasure of hcalthv off
springs, the most serious and destructive symptoms of both mind and body arise.
The system becomes deranged, the physical and mental functions weaken. Loss of
procreative powers, nervous irritability, dyspepsia, palpitation of the heart, indi
gestion, constitutional debility, wasting of the frame, cough, consumption aud death.
Persons ruined in health by unlearned pretenders who keep them trilling mouth
after month taking poisonous and injurious compounds, should apply immediately.
Graduate of one.of the most eminent colleges of the United States, has effected some
of the most astonishing cures that were ever known; many troubled with ringing in
the ears and head when asleep, great nervousness, being alarmed at certain sounds,
with frequent blushing, attended sometimes with derangement of the mind were
cured immediately.
Dr. F. addresses all those who have injured themselves by improper indulgence
and solitary habits which ruin both mind and body, unfitting them for business,
study, society or marriage.
These are some of the sad, melancholy effects produced by the early habits o f
youth, viz: Weakness of the back and limbs, pains in the head and dimness of
sight, loss of muscular power, palpitation of the heart, dyspepsia, nervous irritabil
ity, derangement of digestive functions, debility, consumption, etc.
