MEDIOINKS.—WiII people never learn to know that a
diseased liver and stomach necessarily disease the entire
system t The plainest principles of common sense teach
this and yet there are hundreds who ridicule the Idea,
and continue in' the course which almost inevitably
brings them prematurely to the grave. as the
majority of the people do, at complete variance with iho
laws of nature, it mutt be uppercut to all that,ecroner or
later, nature will revenge herself. Hence we find that
persons who indulge to tacos. in the use of very rich or
indigestible food or intoxicating drinks, invariably pay
a heavy penalty in the end. The stomach becomes die
otdered and refuses to act: the liver falls to perform Its
functions, d3spepela and its attendant evils follow, and
Mill the suffering Individuals persist In clinging to the
thoroughly exploded Idea of the past. Dr. SCHENK'S
medicines are recommended to all such. They bring sure
and certain relief wherever they aro used as directed,
and all that Is necessary to establish their reputation
with every ailing man or woman In the bindle a fair and
impartial trial of them. Lot those who are skeptical on
tins point, and who have permitted interested persona to
prejudice them against these now celebrated remedies for
consumption, discard their prejudices, and be governed
by the principles of reason nod common sense. If the
system is disordered depend upon it, in nine cases out of
ten the seat of the disorder will be found in the stomach
nd liver. To cleanse and invigorate the stomach and to
plimulate the ;?ter to healthy action, use

value. Thousands upon thousands 01 boxes are sold dell/.

MP.SEIRS. EDITORS :—This our coun•
try seems destined by Providence to
fill many of tho most important pagee
in human history. Whilst the nations
of the, old world were rising and falling
to pieces—whilst tho four groat em
pires of antiquity in the east were suc
ceeding each other through rivers of
human blood, to glut the ambition of
cruel tyrants, this western continent
was and had been, for thousands or
years, revolving in the womb of time,
unknown to the contestants for uni
versal empire, and thus shielded from
the grace of wicked mon.
And thus it revolved, whilst count
less occult events which to human
view had no connection, but which in
the hand of God were all connected,
and all converging to accomplish the
discovery and peopling this great
country of ours. There was the revi
val of literature, the art of printing,
the mariner's compass, Am., all tending .
to some groat event unknown to all
but God, who alone could evolve such
mighty and benevolent results; and
thus 'ten thousand events withoUteen.

invisible and insoluble chain; or rather
the warp and woof from, which a sin ,
gle thread or fiber could not be spared,
extending riorn the creation bf man
down to the year 1436, when a poor,
fragile, weeping babe was born in Ge
noa, the son of a wool carder. Of this
babe we know but little till we find
him in college, and at the age of four
teen we find Christopher Columbus in
school outstripping his fellow students,
and all the schools of that age, in the
imperfect sciences of mathematics, as
tronomy and geography. Then we
find him in command of a merchant
ship, next engaged in command of a
war ship, from which when it was on
fire he had to save his life by plunging
into the sea. But notwithstanding
his active life ho labored earnestly and.
successfully in expanding the then
narrow boundaries of geographical and
astronomical science. The result of
those labors was the full conviction ei
ther of a western continent or the pos
sibility of reaching the eastern coast of
Asia by sailing westward. le became
an enthusiast, hie theory was the ab
sorbent of all his mental labors, if not
the very essence of his soul. But like
all men who step forth in advance of
tho age in which they live, he became
the derision of fools, and was despised
by proud senators and princes,to whom
he promised a vast empire for the pit
tance of a poor outfit for the contem
plated voyage of discovery. Alter suf
tering from poverty, contumely, perse
cution 'and ceptempt, we find him in
Spain traveling .upon foot in all the
habiliments of poverty, leading by the
hand a poor, motherless boy, seeking
alms at- a little convent called Santa
Maria de Raboda. .Next we find hiin
after many repulses, pleading at the
magnificent court of Ferdinand and
Isabella, for aid to accomplish' Lis
grand design. And ,hero, after the
poor beggar had touched the heart of
that noble princess, and secured her
Sympathy, he was doomed to plead his
cause before a court council of monks,
Who decided that nothing could be
more absurd and impious than the idea'
of antipodes: . Thus poor Columbus.
found himself denounced as either. an
impoiter, a fool or' the prince of here.'
tics In despair, forsaken, in poverty
and alone, ho started again on foot,
leaving that ill governed court where
his soul had for many years been
worne =and 'sorely grieved lietWeen

4ndiscoierea empire to 'some more

the 3d of August, 1492, in tho 56th

knowe•seas from which their return

the dangers of unknown seas, the mu

October, 1492, taking possession of an

The untutored savage may follow
the Mississippi up to its thousand sour
ces in the mountains of the west, but
can go no farther; but the philosopher
can follow the vapor from tho face of
the ocean into the clouds; be counts
them as they are wafted over the
mountains; he can tell why they are
condensed into rain drops to fall upon
the mountains and valleys, to send out
those springs which give drink to the
beasts of the field; he counts the mil
lions of ritolleta and drippings from the
,breasts of the Rocky Mountains, all
converging to form the father of wa
-erer; ho can follow the mighty stream
to the ocean, witness its magtiltedo,
suntient to carry the commerce of the
world, and bo can tell why' "all the ri
vers run into the sea and still that it is
not full." And so the historian can
lead us on its pathway up to the birth
of Columbus, and that of 'other great
benefactors of h u manity. • •
But who can unroll theidark pages
of occult history beck touts source ?
Who can count the finks of that chain
extending from the morning•of crea
tion up to the throng or OW, or count'
the endless succession of alternating
causes and effects ? Who but the Om- .
niscient God, who seeth the and "from
the beginning, can comprehend such a
vast volume? Or who but the Om
nipotent God, Whose "council shall
stand and who will do all his pleasure,"
is equal to the government of his vast
empire? Who but a God of Infinite
wisdom is equal to harmonizing•the
apparently conflicting events of daily
occurrence; to bring all the works of
creation and Providence into subordi
nation to his moral government, and
all converge to his kingdom of grace,
and finally to the consummation of his
kingdom of glory?
But short sighted though we are, we
can by analogical reason, clearly per
ceive that our national existence was
suspended upon a chain of events ex
tending back to the first man, that the
severance of u single link would have
ruined all, and that the hand of God
alone could bring out the grand results
from occult events, or 'events of small
importance to human view, and, final
ly, give us a nationality of " such vast
importance io,th,e history of the Earth.
Accordingly we find that at an
eventful period,When countless streams

morning stars sang together when the

rectly or remotely counected, because
all resulted from ono mind, and all
contributed to prepare the world for
a now people, a new history and a now
impulse to intellectual and moral light
and Lipman 'liberty; then God sifted
the nations of the old world to collect
a chospo,seed to plant in this our,be
loved land, and guided them by ,his
unerring hand to the then inhospitable
shores of North America. Could you
give tongues to the Plymouth Rock,

early settlements, they could tell Gird•

Christian and he points to his Bible as
the only efficient cause. Ask the phi
losopher why the difference between
republican Franco and republican A
merica, and 'either he cannot or ho will
not tell. But ask the christian why
the former deluged the land in human
blood, and then fell into the hands of
a cruel despot, because unfit for self
government, whilst the latter has had
such an unparalleled success, and ho at
once replies that a cruel hierarchy
sealed the Bible against the people of
France, whilst our fathers carried the
word of God in their bosom with his
spirit in their hearts, whilst laying the
foundation of this glorious republic of
ours. Or if you ask why the people
of South America and Mexico have
struggled in vain for over two hund
red years to secure that liberty which
is the birthright of every human be
ing, and the answer is plain : they
have been too long subject to that cru
el tyrant seated on the seven hills who
forbid the people to road their Bibles.
And from similar reasons we fear that
Spain, now throbbing for liberty, will
struggle in vain. But judging from
the past, wo may confidently predict
that they are doomed to struggle in
vain till like our fathers they tear the
seals froni the 'Bible and open it to the
Great and glorious as we claim to
be; wo are envied, feared and hated as
a nation; envied by the millions in Ea
repo now struggling for liberty; feared
alit hated by thO despots
. 01 the, old
world; who fear our influence, upon
their own Subjects, and hate us because
we teach equality of rights to all. We
are hated worst of all by the prince of
darkness, who has labored with too
much success for nearly sixteen thou
sand years to enslave our race, and we
have ample evidence that ho is not
wearied in,evil doing, but remains that
cunning, insidious' and industrious de
vil which ho always wee, and will re.
main so till one . stronger than he shall
shut him up in chains of darkness for
Now we have nothing to fear from
external foes if we 'make a wise im
provement of our ample means of pro
tection. Bakalas, notwithstanding all
our high-privileges, we haVii ample ev
idence of that pervasive moral deprav
ity which has characterized all our
predecessors; that we have amongst
us the seeds of national dissolution,
and that the fate of the great empires
of earth which rose to power and set
in blood, must be our fate, if we do not
rise in our might and set bounds to,
the growing evil in our land. Count
less though these evils are, all of which
aro grounds of lamentation, we shall
only call attention to four of them
which we'decin of paramount import
ance, either of which if not arrested is
more than sufficient to sap the found
ation of our glorious national institu
tions, and tainuigii md to the destiny of
all the 'nations who have forgotten
God. Therefore We would from deep
obscurity utter as from the tomb of
nations, a warning voice against that
tided' of french and German infidelity
which is pouring in upon us like a tor
rent, which finds to easy a lodgment
in the depraved human heart:
Then there is Popery with her hier
archal chief seated upon the seven hills,
now in. ecumenical council, claimin:
the, old dogma of infallibility, and our
country represented 'at .Rome by a
priesthood who would authorize the
Pope again to' seal the Bib!o against

Weston and his Fifty Miles.
Tließedt Tine Vet--The Walker Cook of
Well, Weston has proved after all
that ho is no humbug, hating tiebotn ;
plished fifty miles in nine hours and
fifty-eight seconds, perhaps the great
est pedestrian feat on record. A New
York paper gives the following graphic
descriptibn of Weston's performance :
At first he walked at an easy, pace,
hut on accomplishing. the first mile, he
strode away at the rate of five miles
an hour. Lie appeared to be in fine
candition, and all his friends were con
fident that he *Maid win. Tl3O band
played lively airs, and as the day ad
vanced the crowd of visitors increased.
A belbred gentleman attended to Mr.
Weston's wants from time to time, and
took every precaution that no tied•
dent should occur. At the end of ev',
cry mile was put upon the bulletin,
and the band played the most appro
priate selections.
Great drops of -sweat began to fall
from the pedestrian's face, after he
had accomplished a few miles, and at
almost every round he called for lem
onade. He gained time slowly, and
when he had walked twenty miles ho
had several minutes to spare. About
five o'clock preparations were made,
for the pedestrian to stop _and rast.—,
Blankets were spread; and a chair
was placed beside the track of him to
sit but he paid no attention to his
friends and kept on his Course. Final.,
ly, ho halted, dropped into the chair,
and was immediately covered. with 'a
blanket. Ho ate rapidly from a bowl
of crackers and coffee, and in an in:
credible short space ho was on his
journey again. A child, with golden
curie threw him kisses, and as,ho,rnov. :
ed away her silver voice bade him
good-bye. By nine o'clock all the
seats were occupied, and every car
brought more people to the spot. The
,increased every moment
and the band played
,with renewed
Vigor. Weston continued to increase
his speed as the hour of ton approach
ed. The police were active, but they
found it no easy task to keep back the
excited Multitude. - Twelve minutes
ahead was announced, and the vast,
building rang with cheers. :"One mile
more gentlemen" was the cry, and
then the crowd swayed to an fro, and
the band played favorite selections
from Offenbach. Weston seemed to
gain strength as he walked; and the
waiter bad to run when he wished to
communicate with him. Toward the
close of the great, feat a smile tfiumina
ted the pedestrian's face and an arch
of uplifted arms spanned the pathway
nearly around the rink.. "Thirteen
minutes and fifty.five seconds ahead 1"
cried one et ,the judges, as the hero
stepped on the platform, and clasped
his wife and child. He then walked,
four times around the rink backwards
making the' following time. The die
tance is half a mile; Ist time, 2 min-
utes 47 seconds; 2d time, 2 minutes 40
seconds; 3d time, 2 minutes 33 sec
onds; 4th time, 2 minutes 37 seconds.
Total,- 10' minutes 37 seconds.
The limo consumed by Mr. Weston
in, walking the ,fifty, miles, was nine
hours fifty-eight minutes and fitty-five
seconds, according, to the City Survey
or's measurement.
!After accomplishing .the feat he ad
dressed the•. multitude, tolling. them
that on the first ofJ uly he would start
for Europe where ho proposes to walk
four hundred miles in five .consecutive
days. •
