'Mv name is Beautj, and I belong to C.S.Wright.'

Passengers by the Oregon express themselves deligfited with the. manner in which that vessel was governed by CapL Connor on her last trip up. A reg ulation by which the grand scramble for places at the table is avoided, was re garded as a very agreeable feature, and its continued enforcement will make travelling per steamer much more pleas ant. The May number of Harper's Maga zine, is very richly illustrated, contain ing over one hundred engravings that may confidently challenge comparison. The illustrated subjects offer unusual opportunities for picturesque treatment. At the. outset the reader, in "A Peninsular Canaan," is transported to that wonder ful region known (though it can scarcely be said to be known at all), as the eas'tern shore on the Chesapeake bay. Howard Pyle, who writes the ar ticle, also illustrates it with eighteen novel pictures of character and scenery. In addition there are contributions from Vj. P. Lothrop, R. II. Stoddard, W. W. Harney and others. In all, making it a most excellent and interesting number. An Illinois man sleeps on a spot of ground left bare for the purpose in his house, and has an attendant shovel clean earth over him, to take the place of bedclothes. He believes that in this way he guards against disease. Alexander H. Stephens was so poor when he commenced the practice f law that he had to live on S6 per month. This is said to be the secret of his assistance to poor young men, over fifty of whom he has assisted to a liberal education, Tlio Car of Dipsomania San Francisco Bulletin. Drunkenness is not fnore a na tional vice than it is a national disease. The reformatories which have been established for the cure of drunkenness have only attained partial success. The Inebriate Asylum established by the btate of New York at Bingham ton, ac cording to late reports, has only effected a reformation or cure in a small per cent of cases. The I pathology of drunkenness has at tracted a great deal ot attention during the last quarter of a century. But a largf class of inveterate drunkards have been considered incurable, as much so perhaps as the incurably insane. Here and there a drunkard who appears to be fargone is restored, or so nearly so that he only lapses after long intervals. His life, however, is one long struggle against his old enemy. He is afraid to encounter temptation. lie is fully aware that his appetite is only sleeping, and that at any time the demon may be aroused within him. Men have recovered from drunkenness and remained sober for years, and then have fallen into the old ways be cause the: sleepingappetite had been aroused by some stimulant thougt lessly taken. Now if smiie remedy could be found whereby the appetite for strong drink could be utterly extinguished, and that without in juring the patient in the least, we should say that a great boon would be conferred upon humanity. At one time and another remedies have been proposed. But none of them have been satisfactory. Pa tients have been made deathly sick uy violent meuicmet,, a lew cases have been cited where the appetite had been wholly destroyed but the authenticity of there rates rests rather upon tradition than upon any tangiable facts. No remedy would be popular, or come . , ' , l . , '. ,., , "'to general use, which is likely to kill the patient as to cure him. j, . . ! f " "m suggus.tiun ui 4uuvwvcij, which is repugnant to the minds of right thinking people.

It is assumed at the outset that the two j "iff legs were. He told the m kinds of drunkenness, continuous j spector that a few days previous a and periodical, are a disease. The victim drinks against his will. Nothing can restrain him. The entreaties of wife, children, the certain ruin of his affairs, and his own physical destruction, will not j keep him back from indulgence. I The craving is overmastering. He j must drink if certain destruction j comes within an hour. It is the old story. The vulture is ffnawinrri at his vitals. Dr. D' Unger's reme - dy IS Citinliswio T?,iKro or pure Loxa bark.

No. 4 savs tluit he is a proiessionai man aim uau ucen a cTrinkcr for twenty years. Dur ing the past year he had consumed about a quart of whisky a day. He declares that a bottle of whisky had been standing on his shelf for several days, and that he had not the slightest desire for liquor. He considers his salvation complete. The gist of this cumulative testi mony is that the patient has no desire to return to his old habit. This testimony is corroborated by the personal observation in a num ber of instances of one or more citizens known to us. It is further affirmed that Dr. D'Unger fur nishes the remedy at about the cost, and that the information is not given for the purpose of mak ing money. In view cf such facts, criticism - i - I 1...-1 r is in a great measure disarmed. Is there a harmless and positive remedy for drunkness, and one within the reach of most persons who have suffered from dipsoma nia? Can an inveterate drunkard, one who has been given up by his friend, be radically cured, and that by a process both simple and harm less. The subject is certainly oi.e of great mo'iient. Facts when they come to light can only be given in a general way. In a single instance known to us m this vicinity where the remedy was ap plied, a cure has been reported. The name, of course, cannot be given. But cases are cited br others outside this pamphlet which seems to be more striking than any of those cited therein. If ! there is a soverign remedy for drunkness, harmless and easy of application, the facts ought to be known to the public. Horse Flesh in Sausages. Xeiv York Herald. Health Inspector Cronant-)f Jersey city, while" engagcHn ' his daily examination of the cow stables and cattle yards in that city and vicinity a few days ago, Avas, b' accident, placed in posses sion of facts which, when fully in vestigated, be expects will dis close a business which is carried on in that city in violation of all law and decency. After making a tour of inspection among the cattle in a yard on Tonnelle avenue, on the Heights, he was about to drive off when he discover ed the log of a horse. He asked the stableman where that came from, and for an answer the man took him to another portion of the yard where the three remain- horse had died at the place and a man came there who skimmed the carcass and cut off the legs." What became of the carcass after that," asked the inspector, and the man replied that it had been cut up into lf dozen pieces and taken away with the hide. Inspector Cronan pressed his qu stions, and the man told him that the person who took away the hide and carcass 1 kept a place just outside of the city limits, and that the carcasses of all dead animals he got were disposed of to sausage makers. The man then grew reluctant and denied that be knew tbe man's name or tbe exact location of his place of business. He said be did not charge him anything for re- moving the carcass, and that - been the first time he. had had ever visited bis stable.
