A Stranger . _ a Den of

the Inmates Arrestedi and Committed 'for
Wednesday .evening last a gentleman,
who for convenience lwe will call Samuel
Ausnell, *hailing from—we don't know
where, :arrived in ; the
. city, and, having
plenty:** the "needful" with him, deter
inined-to,,"see the elephant." . After visit-
ing'several places of amusement, at one of

" slightly acquainted in the city, and from
• ' 'whom he learned:-.of. sights in, another por
tion of the city, and' having come to the
city to see what was to be seen, he turned
4. his steps toward the ."Hill" and finally
halted at a low den on Duncan street, in
the Seventh ward. , Having gained admit
tance,.and the appearance of the place suit
ing him, he, resolved to put' up for the
night; a resdlution, however, he had ample
cause to regret. He awoke yesterday , morn
ing'ind sought his pocket-book for the pur
pose of footing the bill for his night's lodg
. • ing, but; notwithstanding the pocket-book,
which contained five_ hundred dollars; was,
in his pocket when he retired f ltiwaa -not •
there when he • arose, and all scareh failed,
to" discoVer its whereabouts. Suspicion
naturally fell upon the frail creature who
- had occupied the room with him, but she
persistently denied ariy. knowledge of the
_ missing article. He at once repaired to'
Alderman Lindsay's office and made in
' . • formation. charging Mary Whale Ivithltie_
larceny. of the money. She was arrested
and after a hearing committed to jail in
• default of bail; for her appearance at Court.
Truly, "experience is a dear school," and
if Russell has not had enough of it to know
.better than to carry so much _money With
him on such occasions, he deserves to lose it.
, ,To add to his misfortunes, he also was sent
- " to jail in order to seenre his; appearance at

Prize Medal Sewing Machines—What Are
They Worth t
Ever since the award of premiums at the.
Paris Exposition, the public have boon bored
with statements concerning the claims of
the Howe, the Florence, the Weed, the
- Wheeler &WilSon, and the Grover &Baker
manufacturing companies to the first hon
ors (?) of that affair. The machines of .each
of these companies are claimed to be the
beSt because the manufacturers received a
medal or a ribbon to that effect. And SO
many obtained the same prize we can't see'
where the honor comes in. Now, the Singer
Sowing Machine was- not placed on exhibi
tion at the World's Fair in Paris, for the
very good reason -that it does not depend
upon inedals• or ribbons for its success.
The merits of this machine rest--upon- its
over faithful performance of all that is claim
ed for it, and having been adequately used
in all parts •of the civilized world,. and
awarded the 'people's verdict in its foyer, it
can well afford to stand aside and let it A•
feeble rivals find what they can in the
worthless awards of fair committees. It is
a fact that the Singer Machine has been less
advertised than any other, and yet so high.;
ly is it esteemed that only last year, (1867;)
for example; five thousand more machines
of the Singer patents were sold than other
machines now 'before the public. The shit-
Pie arid 'haturalinerease of the business of
the Singer Company for 1867 Was sev_en
thousand.machines' which increase is equal
to three times the entire sales of- the Empire
Company, and nearly twice the entire sales
of the Weed Company for the same period.
In the sane year, .the 'busintos of theVV.laeol
er k WilsOn Manufacturing Company fell
efftwelve thousand. These are facts which
will -stand investigation, but wo doubt
whether the manner in which medals and
ribliOns of the Fairs aro obtained will bear
any scrutiny at all. Wonderful improve=
ments have been made in the Singer Sow
ing Machine„dn'd It is now the best machine
for family and manufacturing purposes. Its.
' sales in this vicinity are already very large,
• and the demand is., still increasing. .is
light, durable, simple and noiseless, arid
ought to find a place in every
. familv.in the
land. -Straw & Morton, General 'Western

The extraordinary cures, performed by
Dr. Keyser's Blood Searcher entitlee
it to a more thin common, ri&tice.
For the pest year it has effeeted cures of
diseases which had baffled the skill and
science of the most learned and scientific
medical men, and it hag done so in pursu
ance of a Wonderful virtue which Dr.'
Keyser's Blood Searcher alone possesses.
It is one of that class of medicines known
as alterative or cutrophic, and by a slow
but sure `process it gradnally brings up the
strength of the human system to the health
stan&rd. It will, after the use of a few .
bottles, place the stoinacli in a condition to
-master and digest the food, and prepare it
into chyle, which iS once carried into the
,eireulatiof of the, blood; and that , good'
blood, of a fit quality to rebuild the con
stantly changing Immanbody. Dr. Keyser,
in the introduction of his Blood :Searcher,
seems to • haver comprehended the
great plan of waste and repair, in
the carrying on of •the functions of life
and health, the rebuilding of the tissues,
the supply of membranes, muscle,
bone and aerve matter, where the proper
'quantity of iron or fiotassia, or phosp - horus,
.or sulphur iSneeded in , the human organ
ism. Dr'. Keyser's Bload - Searcher gives to
the system the power to 'select these eld
imentary principles from the food that is
taken into the stOmach. It places the sto 7
`mach itself in the highest, state of health.
It-strengthens the liver, and enables it to
tiller the bile or :gall from the blood, and
thereby plaCes the, liver -in a healthy and
proper working condition. It heals all the
sores in the bowels and . insidethe'bOdy, as
readily as it doeKuleers on the legs, or can
cer, or scrofula, !or tetter on the skin. It
heals sore or: diseased kidneys, and stimu
lates them to a faithful fulfillment of their
proper functions in, the.human system, and
throUgh•that channel eliminates all poison
ous and morbid matter, which, if allowed to.
remain in the system would be productive:
of rheumatism, neuralgia and hundreds of
aches an& pains- which afflict more than
one-half .of..the human Wilily: Dr. Key
ser's Blood Searcher cleanses out the glands,
