Important Surgical Operation. —Dangers of
Administering Chloroform—Supposed Death of the
Patsent—The Galvanic Battery as a Last resort —
The Battery has the desired effect and the Valient
slotcly recovers—Happy finality of the whole affair.
—One of the most dangerous surgical operations
known in the *■ vocabulary of mdteria medico.'’ or
.the practice of a “ regular physician,” was per
formed upon an athletic specimen of o.ur moun
tain rangers, on Friday afternoon last, by Dr.
D. R. Good and W: S. Bittner, D. S., which
resulted inn manner highly satisfactory to the
professional gentleman, and fully sustained
their high reputation ns skilful surgeons. The
whole time occupied in the dangerous underta
king was not oyer five minutes, although it re
quired some length of time to revive the patient, f
To get to the “ switch tail” of the affair at once, i
the operation consisted in administering chloro
form to a rattlesnake, Which measured over four
feet,'and relieving him of his fangs while under
its influence. Having administered a little too
heavy a dose, he straightened out, and only
came to in answer to an application of the gal
How to ,do up Shiet Bosoms. —With our co
temporary of the Harrisburg Telegraph we have
often been asked by ladies to state by what pro
cess the gloss on new linens, shirt bosoms, &c.,
is produced. Our cotemporary gives' the fol
lowing' recipe, which is not 'expensive, or the
ingredients Wd to obtain, therefore ladies can
try it;—Take two .ounces of fine white gum
arabic powder—put it in a pitcher, and pour on
a pint or more of boiling water, according to
the degree of strength you desire—and then
having covered it, let it stand sill night—in the
morning pour it carefully from the dregs into a
clean bottle, cork it, and keep it for use. A
tableapoonful of gum water stirred in a pint of
starch, made in the usual manner, will give to
lawn, either whit«t.or printed,a look of newness,
when nothing else can restore thetpi, after being
Lviicmax. —On Monday afternoon last, which,
j it will be remembered, was oppressively warm,
j we observed an inhuman chunk of humanity,
about 16 years old, driving at a. smart ohnter,
| up Virgiiiia street, a team of three horses at
tached to ,a wagon on which there was a large
load of hny. To have driven the horses at a
slow walk would have' been sufficient, os they
looked somewhat Jaded, ,hut the idea pf “ pit
ting them thro ugh” at a gallop was, inhuman—
not to say anything worse—and the boy who
did it deserved an effectual application of the
article which he so brutally applied to his
horses, and should afterwards have been chain
ed to a hand-cart and made to perform a task
equal to that ihiposed upon them. A boy who
would thus wantonly abuse dumb brutes under
his charge would do worse.

run into some fixed disease of some i of the air

Pectoral Cough Syrup, made by' that gentle
man, at his great drug aad medicine slot®,

respectable persons ip Pittsburgh, where it is

not prove an exception to. the race, in this in
stance. And is it ;tp be wondered at that she
did not, considering; the source from whence the
, package came. ; Well, In a short space Of. time
she had solved thc oonlcnts of the package, but
whence it came remained a mystery, only to be
solved by us, if at all. Neatly (putting it all ttf
rights again, she patiently (if a woman could
be patient under such circumstances) awaited
our, coming. We came in due time, bat had on
time to get seated ere we were plied with a num
ber of vague questions in relation to our young
'lady acquaintances, the meaning of which we
could net divine. We thought there was “ a cat
in the bag,” and fearing it might jump out when
we were not lookingfor it, we ventured to ask
an explanation of this close chateohising, when
the .mysterious package was handed us, the
circumstances, connected with its presentation
detailed, and wc in tarn asked to explain. Now
here was a dilemma. What should wc do.? Should
w.e say that we knew all about it, but refuse to j
give the name of the donor? or, should we deny
all knowledge of the affair?-. Either horn was
sharp, but one of them ,wc must ride; and just
then we remembered! that
• “Trifles light as air
Are to the Jealous continuations stroug
■ - ■ As proofs Of Holy Writ;"
therefore something must bo done soon, as delay
was dangerous in this case, consequently we
chose* the latter, tfrhich was the true ope.—
Whether this proved satisfactory or not is enough
for us to know, suffice it to say that the package
contained a neat silk neck-tie, for which the un
known donor has our thanks, although she did
get us into rather an unpleasant predicament.
JBQp’ Among the visitors who have recently
favored our town with their presence, we are
happy to notice Mr. 3. F. Coonley, attached to
the well known photographic establishment
of E. Anthony, 501 Broadway, Sew York city.
Mr. Coonley has be<ia for several days past en
gaged in taking some of the remarkable views
immediately on the Pennsylvania Railroad, and
has extended hiS visits to localities of old time
interest, off, but still an the immediate vicinity
of, the Road. Among other interesting locali
ties he has taken pictures of Logan Spring,
Sinking Valley, anil; “the old Lead Mines,’’
which pictures will, eventually, form illustra
tions for one of Harper’s Monthly Magazine ar
ticles. It is by. this great attention to truth,
and perfect disregard :of trouble, that the Har
pers have so successfully maintained their Mag
azine Nabove all competition. We must also con
gratulate E. Abtbohy upon the addition to his
splendid collection landscapes,
somd of the finest in' the Juniata Valiev.
The Tomato as Food. —Dr. Bennett, a pro
fessor of some celebrity, considers the tomato
an invaluable-article; of diet, and ascribes to it
various important najodical properties. First:
That the tomato is one of the most powerful
aperients to the liver and other organs, where
calomel is indicated ; it is probably one of the
most effective and least harmful remedial agents.
known to the profession. : That a
chemical extract will he obtained frag it t>at
will the use of calomel in the cure of
disease. Third: That he has successfully
treated diarrhoea with this article alone.—
Fourth ; That when used as an article of diet
it is an almost sovereign remedy for dyspepsia
and indigestion. Fifth: That it should be con
stantly used for daily food, either cooked or
raw, or in the form of catsup ; it is the most
healthy article now in; use.
The Beret Season,— We are now fairly in
the midst of the berry season. Dozens of bush

JSco 'President of tbePepnsylvania Railroad,
iqcidentaliy gives'the following:
gentleman from Mercersburg, land* his
wife, in Very feeble healthy werevisiting friends
in Philadelphia, when, a few weeks since, th|
lady. Whom all her relatives supposed conb|
scarcely withstand the fatigues of the trip, de
sired to he brought home to die. The opinion
of eminent physicians was, that if her home
was on the line of the Pennsylvania or some
other railroad' leading out of Philadelphia, so
that she would not be compelled to change from
car to car, and if a bed could be placed in a car
she mighTlive to reach her place of destination;
but if she were to be obliged to be removed as
often'as there were different trains of cars be--
tween the two points, she could not survive the
fatigue of the journey.
“ These facts were communicated to ( Col. T.
A. Scott, when, without the least begging, coax
ing, or solicitation, he had a first-class car pre
pared, hauled to within one square of where the
lady was staying, and she taken to the car, pla
ced comfortably in a bed, and, without the mo
lestation of strangers, with the whole given up
to the accommodation of the sick lady, and her
husband and mother, had her conveyed from
Philadelphia to Greencastle, without having to
leave her bed in the car once.”

An aperient anil stomachic preparation of Iron purified
of Oxygon and Carlson t<y combustion in Hydrogen. Sanc
tioned by the highest Medical Authorities, both in Europe
and the United States, aud prescribed in their practice.
The experience of thousands daily proves that no prepa
ration of Iron can be compared with it. Impurities of the

complexions indicate its necessity in almost every concei

Whites, Chlorosis. Liver Complaints. Chronic Headaches,
Hheumalism, Intermittent ferers. Dimples on the Fare, dx'.
In cases 'of General Debility, whether the result of acute
disease, or of thecontinucd diminution of nervous and mus
cular energy from chronic complaints, one trial of this re
storative has proved successful to an extent which no de
scription nor tyritten attestation would render credible.—
Invalids so long bed ridden ns to have become forgotten in
their owni neighborhoods, have suddenly re-appeared in the
busy world as if just returned from a protracted travel in
a distant laud. Some very signal instances of this kind are
attested by Female sufferers, emaciated victims of apparent
marasmus, sanguineous exhaustion, critical changes, and
the complication of nervous and dyspeptic aversion to air
and exercise, for which the physician has no name.
In Nervous Afflictions of oil kinds, and for reasons fa
miliar .to medical men, the operation of this preparation of
iron must necessarily bo salutary, for, uuliko the old ox
ides, it is vigorously tonic, without being exciting and
oyerbeating; and gently, regularly aperient, even in the
most obstinate cases of costiveness without ever being a
gastric purgativej'or inflicting a disagreeable sensation.
It is this-latter properly, among others, which makes it
so remarkably effectual and permanent a remedy for Files
upon which it also appears to exert a distinct and specific
action, by dispersing the local tendency which forms tlu ni
In Dyspepsia, innumerable as are its causes, asin-Ie box

the (uTccts have been equally decisive and astonishing
Imho local pains, loss of flesh and strength, debilitating
cough, and remittent hectic, which generally indicate 1m
cipient Consumption, this remedy has allayed the alarm
of friends aud physicians, in several very gratifying and
interesting instances. * J b
In Scrofulous Tuberculosis, this medicated iron has had
far more the good effect of the modi cautiously bal

In Rheumatism. both chronic and inflammatory—in the
latter, however, mbre decidedly-it has been invariably
well reported, both as alleviating the pain and reducing the
swellings and stiffness of the joints and muscles.
In intermittent Fevers it must necessarily be a»reat re
medy and energetic restorative, and its progress in the now
settlements of the West, will probaby be one of high re
nown and usefulness.
No remedy has been discovered in the whole history of
medicine, which exerts such prompt, happy, and fully re
storative effects. Good appetite, complete digestion, rapid
acquisition of strength, with an unusual disposition for
active and cheeffnl exercise, immediately follow its use.

Prop. 0. J. Wood:. Dear Sir:—Your IFair Restorative to
rapidly gaining impularity in tbfs community. I have had
occasion to lay prejudice aside, and glvo;your Hair Res
torative a perfect test:— • ■ , *
During tlie ycdr 1834, I was so unfortunate as to W
thrown from my sulky against a rock, near the raad-SBto,
from which my head received a most terrible WowitaS
sing a great deal of irritation, which communlcated-tothe
brain and external surface of the bead, from the effects Of
which my hair was finally destroyed over ‘the
face of the head. From the, timer' I first' discovered-iO
dropping, however, up to the timo of its total, disappoir
nnce, I employed everything I'could think of; beingafifo
fessloual-mau myself, ami, as I thought, understaodlogtil*
nature of the disease, but was finally delcated in every nre-'
scription advanced. - . r
Theao and no otiicr circmnKfanccs induced me to resort
-to your worthy Hair Resforatluv which I have.evnY**-
son to hoi ievc, produced, a very happy result; two muti ths
after tho first application..! had as beautiful a htiidof
young hair as I ever saw, for which I certainly owe you
my most sincere thanks. Rest assured, dear sir,
recommend your remedy to all inquirers; moreover,l slraU
Hseray infinence, which I flatter myself to say ; is db( a
ion can puljish this if you think proper. - . ..
Yours, very respectfully, : £ J.. WRIGHT, M.D, “

Dear sir .—I feel it my duty os well as m.Vpleaaure, to
state to.’you the following clmunstabce,'which you can use
os you think proper. A gcnUehian hi this place, (» law- .
yor.) lias been bald over since ilia early youthso mnclfsot
that he was compelled to wear a wig. no Was induced to
use a bottle of your “ Hair Restorative,” which he liked
very mnch; and after using some two or three botttarhto
hair grew out quite luxuriantly, and he now has a
somc head of hair. The gentleman’s name la BradfbrdiauA
as ho is very well known in onr adjoining counties, sissy
persons can testify to the truth of this statement; Igtttt
it to yoh at tho request of Mr. Bradford. You Ckn selili,
