is the season -of the year at which the
above diseaaesarc the most prevalent in
tljis part of r the country, and in so many
cases baffle the skill of our best physcians,
we give the following remedy which'we
find in a late number of the Scientific
American , hoping that we may thereby
aid in relieving the suffering. The paper
referred to, which, by the way, is in all
cases reliable, states that Mr. \Vitt, a
Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, I
has published a pamphlet in which he
states that bicarbonate of ammonia is a
specific for the cure of scarlet fever and i
measles. He cites Dr. Peart, of Liver- 1
pool, and other practitioners, who have
never lost a case out of hundreds, since
adopting this' remedy. Two drachms of
the bicarbonate of ammonia are dissolved
~in five ounces of water, and two tablespoon
fuls of the solution given every two, three,
or four hours, according to the urgency of
the symptoms. No acid drink must be
taken, but only water, or toast and water.
The system is to be moved by a dose of
calomel if necessary; The room must be
Well ventilated, but the patient protected
from the slightest cold or droit. Gargles
should also be employed for clearing the
throat* The ammonia seems to counteract
the poison which causes scarlatina, and
also aote on the system by diminishing the
frequency and at the same time increasing
the strength of the pulse. We do not
pretend to understand medicine, and there
fore givethe above remedy as -we .find it,
leaving it with our physicians to form an
estimate of its value, aud give it a trial if
they "think it worthy.
Again.—A few days since we were the
recipient of another favor from those lib
eral publishers, Messrs. T. B. Peterson &
Brothers, of Philadelphia, in the shape of
a copyof Miss Fredrica Bremer’s last work,
entitled “TheFobb Sisters.” We have
not had time to peruse it, but we are wil
ling toj take the word of Robert Morris,
as to its merits. He says “it is in the
best style of its charming authoress. We
arc sure that every lover of a pure and
healthy literature will welcome,this trans
lation by Mary Howitt, of this last story
of the gentle and ainiable Swcediah&uthor
ess. The,purity of the writings of Miss
Bremer, their sympathetic power, and the
excellent morals which she ever inculcates,
renders her novels welcome to the family
circle. They teach patience, affection and
endurance in such a manner as to Improve
and gratify every mind. The style is
glowing, the sentiments are pore, and the
Four Bisters may be read with pleasure as
well as profit by all classess of society.—
We specially recommend it as a story
which it will do any one good to read.
The price of it is but 51. 25, and copies of
it will be sent, free of postage ,to any one,
by the .publishers, T. B. Peterson & Broth
ers, on sending that amount to them in a
letter.” '

says that a petition has been prepared, and
is in circvilation for signatures, praying
Congress to provide for the construction
of a double track Railroad from the At

tinct companies, in as many sections, each
being paid in shares of one hundred mil
lions of dollars as its work may be done.
No lands are to be given; none bat Ameri
can iron and other materials of American
manufacture most be used ;—the fare for
through passengers must never exceed
three-fourths of a cent per mile; and the
whole work must be completed within five
years. For the construction of a road
upon these conditions, the petitioners say
they will ever pray.’ 7 We think it will
require a great many long prayers to ef
fect the passage of such a bill, and double
as many more, and twice as long, to build
tbc road after the bjll has passed.
WS ** On the 13th ult., the publishers of
the Atlantic Monthly issued in book form,
the “ Autocrat of the Breakfast Table,”
written by Oliver Wendell Holmes. The
Inimitable articles composing this work
were furnished by the author and pub
lished in the magazine above named, and
from the general reading they have had,
it would be surperfluoua for us “to say any
thing in praise of the “ Autocrat.” No
contributions to Magazines, cither in Eng
land or America, have ever attained such
instant and universal popularity. They
have hit the public at a point where all
men agree; and it is because they arc full
of the nature that makes all men kin.—
The work is bound in one volume of 350
pages, in handsome style, with character

American Enterprise. —No race of
people under £un possess the spirit .of
enterprise to be found among the people
of the United States, and especially those
of the New-England States.- Lieut. Strain
says that in crossing die plains from'Men*
doza to San Luis, in South'America, he
met an intelligent American, who had
crossed the Andes and pushed his way
thus far into the unfrequented regions of
ithe South. The reader, with Lieut. Strain,
will readily suppose that science bad led
an enthusiastic votary to undertake this
distant tour info the semi-civilized regions,
and his astonishment will not be greater
than the Lieutenant’s, when he found that
the traveller was an agent for an Ameri
can patent medicine.
Heavy Verdict.—We learn from the
Pittsburgh True Press , that in a case just

brought by an employee of the road, for
injuries received from some carelessness
of some, of the'other hands on the train—
his leg being smashed. The caae was tried
by (ien. William A. Stokes, in his usual
able manner, for the Company ; mid by
Hon. H, B. Foster, for the Plaintiff. Af

“ Hasheesh” Eating at Peinceton College
—Attempted Suicide or a Student. —A cor
respondent of the Newark Advertuer, writing
from Princeton, N J , under date of the 24 th
lust., says:
“A tremendous excitement was created hi ts
last night by the announcement that a member
of the Senior Club, Mr. C. fl., had made an at
tempt to hang himself. He bad a few days
before perused the famous work of Ludlow, en
titled ‘ The Aasheesh Eater,’ and yesterday af
ternoon, notwithstanding the persuasions of his
friends to the contrary, determined to experi
ment with this' dangerous drug. Of a delicate
constitution, the quantity he swallowed, al
though within that prescribed by the antbor of
the work, was productive of the most injurious
results. Escaping from two of his class mates
while under its influence, and imagining, as be
himself states since his recovery, that he had
been sentenced to be hung and appointed his
own executioner, he endeavored with his neck
erchief to carry out this insane project, and
would probably have accomplished tills purpose,
had not the aforementioned persons, who were
searching for him, discovered the body before
respiration hod entirely ceased.
He was conveyed tp his room, and through
the exertions of Hr. J. S. Schenck, who was
promptly on the spot, soon restored.
Honor to the Beats; —Lieut. General Scott

pedestal contain the nagnes of the principle bat
tles fought in Mexico* Tapering up along each
side of the plate ore two palmetto trees, colored
true to nature, and at the bottom are bunches

Mail Caebisbs in TffS Noeth West.— Pn-ing
the winter months, white all lake and river tr -

hors of these men are of the severest character.
Over* the ice and spews, through swamps and
tangled forest trails, they wend their way;
sometimes packing the maß, with the provisioi s
for their trip, or, as they style it, voyage, upon
their back —at others, driving it before them in
sleds drawn by trained dogs.. In this way they
traverse the country for hundreds of mil s
through the frost and storms of winter,; sleep
ing where night finds them, and deeming them
selves specially fortunate if they can mal;e their
beds in the bosom of a deep anow bank. - Their
life is certainly one of great ban'ship, yet it
would be difficult to make them regard it in
any such light. It is said that they can acoom

Brigham Youtfo.—Among the carious devel
opments of the stoppage of a banking houSp in
the City of Washington, recently, is the feet
that Brigham comes out minus about slo,ooo',
having been a confiding depositor to thatexteut,
through the agency of the territorial delegate,
wbo transacted his ’ financial matters in this
quarter. It seems, with all Brigham’s devotion
to Mormonism, he thought it as well to provide
for a wet day elsewhere, and hence has been
emulating some other rulers, who made invest*
meats at adistance from the scene of threatened
or impending revolution. In this case, how
ever, fate ruled adversely to the sensual specu
lator, and be has to mourn die loss of both 1
principle and interest Brigham will become
cyen more disgusted with a government which
ho* fenced in bis domination in Utah, and al

Indiana. —The Legislature of Indiana has de
