on the tongue. Then lay the bill on a piece
of writing psper, carefully drawing the edges
together, snd lay another piece of writing pa

A GENIUS IN THE CELLS. —The editor
of the Rochester Democrat having recent
ly visited Auburn Prison is publishing an
account of what he saw there. He says
'one of the convicts, more than many of
his fellows, and who was looked upon for
some time after his incarceration as hardly
compos mentis, has invented and made a
superior sewing machine, entirely different
from any used in the outer world, upon
which the prison clothing is made. Near
by.a knitting machine of his make is turn
ing out stockings for the prisoners at a
rate which made the ladies stare with as
tonishment as they passed by it. lie also
made a gun worth $125, and is now at
work making locks of his own invention
for the new cells. His name is Moody,
and he is a nephew of Col. Moody, of Ohio,
the celebrated Methodist minister who
made such a stir among the rebels during
the war. He is confined for grand larceny.
The Way to Pay the Public Debt.
There is a general discussion as to the
best way to pay the public debt. The
matter is plain as daylight says the Detroit
Free Press: pat the thi -ves out of office and
put honest men in, Retrench the expen
ditures of the Government to one hundred
million. Cut the Freedmen's Bureau
swindle from the Treasury, and thus save
millions tojthe people. If the negroes are
fit to vote, they are competent to sustain
themseves. Take the military trom the
South and muster them out of service, and
leave the people there to 'reconstruct'
themselves, as they were doing before
Congress interfered, and put them further
from the Union than they were ever be
fore. Cut off the myriads of parasites now
hanging upon the Treasury. Retrench
expenditures until the income exceeds the
outgo. Apply the surplus to tue payment
of the national debt, and the whole "ques
tion" will be answered.
VOTERS! FEEL IN YOUR POCKETS!—
We are taxed about one hundred and Jiftg
millions a year, in order to pay interest on
the war debt ! It this interest were to be
paid in greenbacks —which we have to take
as money—we would be free of this tax !
if we have to take greenbacks in place of
gold, why should not the bondholders take
Why does not the Govern
ment print off some more greenbacks, and
pay bondholders in place of taxing the
people ?—N. Y. Freemans Journal.
VOTERS! ARE YOU SLAVES ?—Fifteen
thousand capitalists own Government
Bonds and are free, by law, from all State
and County tax ! You pay what they do
not! That is why you have hard times !
You are paying your own taxes, and these
of these bondholders! The radical Re
publican party have put this burden on
you. The Democratic party want to take
it off!—N. Y. Freemans Jvu nal.
MAKE ENDS MEET!—A roasting piece
of beef is better than a Government Bond!
if the buteher takes greenbacks for whole
some beef, Bond holders had better take
greenbacks for their bonds—for half of
them are issued fraudulently—and they
are not going to be paid—ever—except in
greenbacks I—N. Y. Freemans Journal.
VOTERS! ATTENTION! The mechanic,

A THOUGHT FOR VOTERS NEXT ELEC
TION- —If greenbacks are good enough to
pay the farmer for his bushels of wheat,
why are greenbacks not good enough to

It no w turns out through Republican
sources that all of the Andersonville hor
rors we re the result of mature deliberation
of Holt and the War Department. Thir
ty thousand of our fathers, sons and broth
ers left to die botiible deaths, because the
authorities at Washington said they were
too feeble to be of service in our ranks, and
it would cost money to maintain them in
hospitals, and to have exchanged man for
man with rebels, would aid the Southern
cause. For one whole year, Republican pa
pers published cuts descriptive of the pri
son pen, hung Wire for his cruel treatment
and denounced the South for its brutality
when it now turns out by the showing of
the highest authority, that the South was

every man. If Stanton and Holt and But

this they have cbaitmd lives.

Thomas' Patent Atmospheric
Patented May 7th, 1867.
The must Important and Valuable Intention
the I9ty Century,
1. The Dasher is superior to any other, by being
m simple as the old dasher, and combining the at
mospheric principie therewith, and the Batter Gxlh
2. It is superior to all others, inasmuch as the
saute power applied to this in like mechanical oper
ations will make one-fourth more reciprocations.
3. It is superior to all others, inasmuch as it pro
duces in a much shorter time
4. It is superior to any other, inasmuch as it pro
duces a much better quality of Butter.
Lastly it is superior to any other Patent Churn ,
inasmuch as it is 500 per cent, cheaper than any
It is well known to Dairymen and others, that
Butter is contained in minute globules or sacks coh
ered with a membrane, and requires the action of
air to prepare the covering to be removed by Dic
tion. The Scientific American says l
■'lf cream is dashed against hard substance or
mashed between bars or rollers,it breaks the globules
and becomes oily, by destroying the grain It
should be thrown into currents and counter-currents
by the action of air, causing a friction by the cur
rents against each other, removing the covering
without breaking or bursting the globules."
This is the principle which the inventor of this
Dasher endeavored to kee[ in view, and the result
shows a much
LARGER YIELD OF BETTER OBTAINED IN
LErS TIME THAN ANY OTHER DASHER
Experiments have proven that any other method
except pumping air through the cream ,will not pen
etrate sufficiently to oxygenize all the globules pre
paratory to concentrating the butter. Throwing it
into the air by clappers of old fashioned Dashers,
does not sufficiently expose it to the air to bring out

RAIL ROAD CO.
'I HE I'll F7HS'2 MORTGAGE
As an Investment.
The rapid progress of the I'nion Pacific Railroad,
now building west from Oinaha, Nebraska, and for
tiling, with its western cmnectijns, an unbroken line
across the continent, attracts attention to the value
of the First Mortgage Bonds which the Company
■ now offer to the pullic. The first question asked by
! prudent investors is, "Are these bonds secure 1"
| Next, "are they a pr< Stable investment 7" to reply
I in brief;
Ist. The early completion of the whole great line
! to the Pacific is as certain as any future business
i evenfean be. The Government grunt of over twen
| ty million acres of land and fifty iniUiob dollars in
' its own bonds practically guarantees it. One fourth
| of tho work is already done, and the track continues
j to be laid at the rate of two miles a day.
2d. The Uuion Pacific Railroad bonds are issued
upon what promises to he oue of the most profitable
lines of railroad in tho country. For many years it
must be the only line connecting the Atlantic and
Pacific; and being w ithqut competition, it can main
tain remunerative rates.
J 3d 425 miles of this road are finished, end fully
equipped with depots, locomotives, cars, Ac., and
J two trairsjire daily running each way. The uiateri
! ais for the .etnaining 131 miles to the eastern base
of the Rocky Mountains are on hand, and it is under
i contract to be done in September.
4th The net earnings of the sections already Sn-
I ished are scleral Hints greater than the gold inter
i est upon the First Mortgage Bonds upon such sec
-1 tions, and if not another mile of the road were built
the part already completed would not only pay in
terest and expenses, but be profitable to the Coin
j sth. The Union Pacific Railroad bonds can be is
i ued only as the road progresses, and therefore can
never be in the market unless they represent a bona
i 6th. Their amount is is strictly limited by law to
j a sum equal to what is granted by the U. S. Gov
ernment, and for whi hit takes a second lien as its
| security. This amount upon the first 517 miles west
from Amaha is only $16,000 per mile.
7th The fact that fbc U. S. Government consid
! ets a second lieu upon tho road a good investment,
and that some of the shrewdest railroad builders of
! the country have alreadv paid in five million dol
; Urs upon the stock (which is to them a third lien),
j may well Inspire confidence in a first lien.
• Bth. Although it is not claimed that there can be
! any hotter securities that Governments, there are
I parties who consider a first mortgage upon such a
property as this the very best security in the world,
and who sell their Governments to re-invest in these
| bonds —thus securing a greater interest,
j 9th. As the Union Pacific Railroad bands are offer
! Ed for the present at 90 cents on the dollar and ac
crued interest, they are the cheapest security in the
. market, being over 15 per cent, less than U. S.
10th, At tho current rate of of premium on gold,
Over JWne per Cent. Zttterest.
