To destroy lice on cattle, camphor
dissolved in spirits is an effective agent.
There must be some mistake about
this. We know a Democrat in this town
who has tried the "effective agent" re
peatedly—taking it inward, of course,
and he is just as lousy as ever.
A 13EnIcs COUNTY Life Insurance
agent, a few days ago induced a Copper
head to take out a policy on his life, by
making him believe the hog cholera had
broken out in a neighboring district.
A Copperhead paper says, that in order
to secure Seymour's election they must
get out every Copperhead voter. Can't
do it, for some of them are in for a num
ber of years.
THERE is a hiatus in Grant's history,
say the Copperheads. That may be, but
it is nothing compared with the hiatus he
made in the Copperhead party at Vicks
burg, in 1863, and at Appomattox, in

Governor Wise was never a secession

was always devoted to the Union, and
that Andersonville was a delightful place
to spend the summer.
" WHAT uniform do you suppose I
wear? Do you think I have began to
wear gray ?" said one of General Han
cock's staff officers, when asked if he
would vote the Copperhead ticket. Many
a soldier will repeat the question.
IN 1860 the Southern tire-eaters threat
ened secession if they failed. They now
threaten revolution if they succeed.

a man nor a dollar to put down the rebel
lion ? The Copperhead party.
ME Boston Post is made anxious by
the question of a religious paper at
Chicago, " Can a Democrat be saved?"
It is a difficult problem indeed: but if a
Democrat will eschew the sins of his
leaders, and neither drink like Blair nor
lie like Seymour, there may be some hope

was admitted to probate yesterday. It is
in the handwriting of the deceased, and
reads as follows:
Last Will and Testament of Thaddeus Stevens,
of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
I give all my estate, real and personal, to my
trustees and executors, hereinafter named,
and their heirs, on condition nevertheless that
they will dispose of it as hereinafter directed
by the payment of the several sums mention
ed. They will reduce such of the property as
they deem proper to cash, and put the nett
proceeds at interest by investing the same in
government securities at not less than six per
cent. per annum. I direct them to pay to the
town of Peacham, State of Vermont, one thou
sand dollars, the interest whereof at six per
cent. to be applied in aid of the Juvenile library
association, watch was formed at the Caledo
nia County Academy, if the same is still in
existence, and continue to pay the sameso
long as the same continues in active operati oft.
I give and bequeath to the trustees or title
holders of the graveyard in which my mother
and brother Manson are buried, in the town
of reacham, Vermont, live hundred dollars,
to be put at interest perpetually, and the in
terest to be paid annually to the Sexton on con
dition that he keep the graves in good order,
and plant roses and other cheerful flowers at
each of the four corners of said graves, every
Spring. If either of the said legacies should
lapse, the same to go to the support( Ithe Bap
tist Church or meeting nearest to Danville
Centre, my native town in Vermont.
I direct one hundred dollars to be put at
compound interest, and the aggregate amount
to be paid to Thaddeus Stevens Brown, son of
John E. Brown, of Philadelphia, at age.
I give two thousand dollars to my nephew.
Dr. Thaddeus M. Stevens, of Indianapolis. I
give to his sister, Mrs. Eauffman_, one thou
sand dollars. I give to George F. Stevens. son
of Simon Stevens, one thousand dollars, to be
put at interest and paid to him by his father
when he arrives at age.
I give to Mrs. Lydia Smith, my housekeeper,
five hundred dollars a year during her natural
life, to be paid semi-annually; or at her option,
she may receive five thousand dollars. She
may make her election, and then release all
further claims on my estate. Mrs. Smith has
some furniture of her own, used in common
with mine, some bought with her own money.
as well as others which it would be difficult
to distinguish. Now, she must be trusted on
honor to take such as she claims, without fur
I give to my nephew. Captain Thaddeus
Stevens, now at Caledonia, my gold watch.
I give to my nephew, Captain Thaddeus Ste
vens, eight hundred dollars a year, to be paid
half yearly. If by reason of sickness he need
more, at the discretion of the trustees. None
of the legacies, except the annuities. will be
paid for three years, during which time the
house I now live in, and furniture and books,
will remain as they are, except the miscalls
neous books, which may be sold at any time.
Mrs. Smith may occupy the house the first
year, and if Thaddeus, sou of Morrill, prefers
to keep house to boarding, he may keep house
there with her, or with any one else. during
the three years or any part thereof. If at the
end of three years, Thaddeus Stevens prefers
some other mode of living, then the trustees
shall dispOse of said property as they may
deem best. While it is occupied by my nephew,
he shall be charged with t Mee hundred dol
lars a year rent for it. The property occupied
by Mr. Effinger. after adding two feet of the
lot In width to the other lot, may be sold. As
five thousand dollars have been offered for it,
it should not go for less.
The Furnace and all other real estate may
be rented or sold. The Furnace must not be
worked longer than to consume the stock on
hand. If at the end of any five years, Thadde
us, nephew, shall have shown that he has to
tally abstained from all intoxicating ainks
through that time, the trustees may convey to
him one-fourth of the whole property, If at
the end of the next successive five years, he
shall show that he has totally abstained from
all intoxicating drinks, they may convey to
him one-fourth, being one half of the proper
ty. If at the end of another consecutive five
years lie shall show that he hits abstained
from all intoxicating drinks, they may con
vey the whole to him, in fee simple. If he shall
get married before the house I live in is sold,
he shall receive the same, and occupy It with
If the life estate of my nephew, or rather
the annuity of said Capt. Thaddeus Stevens,
of Vermont, should expire before he has ena
bled himself to become entitled to the corpus
or fee simple of my estate, then I dispose of
whatever may remain as follows: If the ag
gregate sum shall then amount to fifty thou
sand dollars, without which no further dispo
sition can be made, I give It all to my trustees
to erect, establish and endow a house of refuge
for the relief of the homeless and indigent
orphans. Those shall be deemed orphans who
have lost either parent. I devise twenty thou
sad dollars to be expended in erecting suitable
buildings, the residue to be secured in gov
ernment securities, bearing not leas than six
per cent. interest. I wb.h the building to be
erected in the city of Lancaster, south of King
street, provided sufficient ground, not less
than two acres, shall be donaad therefor.
If not, then at the west side of said street, on
same conditions. If sufficient ground is not,
gratuitously offered, then I iirect. it to be built
at Columbia. The orphans who can not be boa nd
out, may remain in the institution until the
age of fifteen years, and longer, if infirm, at
the discretion of the trustees. They shall all
be carefully educated in the various branches
of an English education, and in all industrious
trades and pursuits. This must be left to the
discretion of the authorities. No preference
shall be shown on account of race or color in
the admission or treatment. Neither poor
Germans, Irish or Mohomedans, nor any of tiers
on account of their race or their religion or
their pal cuts must be excluded. All the in
mates shall be educated in the sauce classes

shall be fed at the same table. The dormato
