It la rumored that two valiant spirits, in this
reighliorhood. aot having the fear of the '• higher
lew'' before their eyes, and not being actuated by
the best of " spirits," challenged each other to
mortal combat the other day. It is said all the pre
liminaries were arranged—weapons chosen, grounds
selected, Ac., but for some reason or other the fight
did not come off as expected. The cause of all this
disturbance is said to l*e wounded honor of a sable
hued gentleman of chivalric blood, who coul 1 see
no other redress but it. the " code of honor" so gen
erally ia vogue among the bravo spirits of olden
time. Oh, shade ol chivalry ! where is tby victory?
It is said, with more truth than poetry, that the
editor of the Democrat has Ik en obliged to sell his
very excellent and pleasantly situated home to re

ship, is the purchaser,

A Church Persecuted.—la olden time two
neighboring religious denominations erected a church
edifice and each paid their equal share, with the un
derstanding that the house should be free for all or
thodox denomination? to worship in its sanctuary ;
and for many loog years everything went smoothly,
but ;n the course of time fanaticism and higher law
ideas crept into the church at well as ioto politics.
The writer being an eye witness of occurriag events
trorn the first, and seeing the growing evils and dis
honesty practiced upon honest people, has been led
to pen this article aDd give a succinct history of
events in defence of the right, without giving names
of persoDs or places.
In after years two bigoted sectarian fanatics came
to owell in the laDd, and for a time all went well,
ntd tbeie were no great wrongs committed by these
met, although they were loyal leaguer?, ami in the

of higher degree, aud he issued an edict, en l the
decree went forth commanding his brethren of one
d'nomination to pay tithes annually or desist from
worship in the sanctuary, and in this way they were
cheated out of the monoys paid in the erection of the
house of worship, and driven from its sanctuary priv
ileges by the very men who never paid a cent in all
their lives toward its erection. The other denied
that he voted for the edict, hut as the decree had
gone forth he would stand by it, although he knows
be has lieen threatened prosecutions by some roguish

this man was a singer aDd chief musician; his clear

all his might a. the one denomination left the sanc

Like the volcano, Boils give issue to the foul and
fiery contents of the deep interior. To remove the
cause of such suffering it is only necessary to vitalize
the Blood by supplying it with iu Life Element,
THE PERUVIAN SYRUP,
(a protected solution of thi Protoxide of Iron) will
do this effectually, and give strength, rigor and
new life to the whole system.
Extract of a Letter from Rev Richard S. Edes, of
"For years I was a sufferer from Boils, so that mv
life became wearisome through their frequent and
persistent recurrence ; finally ft carbuncle formed in
ths sinGl of my back. During its progress large
pieces of decomposed flesh were every day or two
cut away, and tbe prostration and general disturb
ance of the system were great. Before I bad recov
ered from this attack two smaller carbuncles broke
out higher up, and I was again threatened with a
recurrence of the sufferings to which I had so long
been subjected It was at this time that I commenc
ed taking the PERUVIAN SYRUP. I continued
taking it until I had used five bottles : since then I
have hod nothing of the kind. For years I was one
of tbe greatest sufferers. Other medicines gave me
partial and temporary relief, but this remarkable j
remedy, with a kind and intuitive sense.went direct
ly to the root of the evil, and did its work with a
thoroughness worthy of its established character."
