DR. Joaas, or NEW YORK, who is practicing
at Herr's Hotel, in this city, with such un
bounded success,- will remain here until the 3d of
March, when he leaves for Lancaster city, where
be will practice at the City Hotel for a couple
of weeks before he returns home. Dr. Jones
has devoted his life and fo'rtune to the study
and treatment of chronic diseases ; hence his
great success. Dr. J. has cured many old stand
ing diseases in this vi inity which had been pro
nounced incurable. It is not necessary for the
patient to see the Doctor more than once, in
order to have a cure effected, as chronic diseases
require a certain course of treatment, which
must be continued until a cure is effected.
Awful State of Society in Richmond.
The.following curious editorial, from the Rich
mond Examiner of the 6th inst., shows how de
plorable is the state of affairs at the once quiet
capital of Virginia:
"The rowdyism now rife in this city has be
come intolerable, and demands irnmedi rte sup
pression with the high hand. Acts of brutal
violence, vulgar ruffianism and gross indecency
are of momentary occurrence in our streets.—
The most orderly' citizen and the most delicate
lady are exposed to outrage and insult. No
man's life, even, is secure in broad daylight, on
our most public thoroughfares. To surround,
knock down, bruise and maltreat; has become
the pastime of the ruffians that throng our
pavements. The great evil must be suppressed,
or else society must Surrender its authority to
brute violence. We must disorganize the social
system, resolve ourselves into savages, and
prepare for protection by the most effective
weapons of self-defence, or etse we must assert
the power of the law upon the persons of the
raffianikand vagabonds that infest our streets

of the police, and a larger constabulary
employed. Every street corner should be man
ned by a policeman in uniform, aimed to the
teeth, whistle in hand. prepared to rally a dozen
colleagues on the instant of disturbance. The
license money arising from the rapid increase of
grog-shops would seem appropriately employed
in invigorating the police. if these furnaces
of hell-fire are allowed to dispose at every cor
ner which not merely intoxicates but crazes,
surely the revenues which they pay into the
city treasury should be expended in protecting
the valuable lives which they imperil, and in
restoring the order which they disturb. The
city, by tolerating a thousand dens of iniquity
and passion, owes the duty to its rpulation of
affording it protection from the dangers and
outrages thus engendered and prepared. The
time has , arrived for vigilance and stunmary re
form 'or elge ruffiainism, theft, arson, drunken
ness and murder will claim the city as their
In another column of the Examiner we find
the following extraordinary statement, on which
it is not necessary to remark at all:
"A few nights ago the gamblers of Richmond
held a convention in this city, and after the
fashion of the 'noble refrigerators' of Congress,
transacted their business in secret session. We
are: informed that one hundred and fifty mem
bers of the gambling and 'plug' fraternity were
present ; that fifty thousand dollars were voted
and subscdbed to as a fund to carry the next
election for mayor ; and that the candidate
nominated as likely to unite the gambling and
rowdy interests of Itichmond, was an ungram
maiical grocer and whisky-worm of the name
of David J. Saunders. We are very much 'of
the, opinion that if matters are not speedily
bettered in Richmond, the gamblers, 'plugs,
and the retired and nosAv ,ry whisky dealer
they propose as their candidate will be in the
hands'of vigilance a committee before the date
of 'the next municipal electii."
A Hamm Fourrucxx Umox Gum--A Paducah
correspoudent of the Louisville Journal, writing
under the date of February llth, says
bi these times of terror and peril in this dis
trict, some of the most heroic acts have been
performed ; but perhaps .the noblest of all was
perpetrated, a few days since, by a young lady
of Gravei 'county, well known to the writer,
Miss Anna Bassford. Her father and family
are devotedly, for the. Union. The old man
having information that the notorious H. C.
King (expelled from our Legislature for trea
son):and his robber 'baud intended to visit the
house for the purpose of taking horses, guns,
Ste., .hid his gun and brought his horses to this
place. Whilst here three. of King's whiling
band visited the house, demanded the gun,
and alarmed Mrs. Baesford, who ordered a son
of fifteen years old to fire the gun and deliver
it, over. The boy, after considerable search,
found the gun ; the robbers then demanded a
pistol, which they were informed belonged in
the family, whereupon the daughter, some
seventeen years old, told them she knew where
the: pistol was, but they could not get it. The
robbers insisted, with loud vulgar oaths, but
the "girl was determined, and, seeing that they
were foiled in this, they ordered the feeble,
sickly boy to mount up behind one of their
clan, as they intended to take him to Camp
Beanregard in place of his d—d Lincolnite
father. The boy and mother, in tears, pro
tested, but to no effect, and the boy was in the
act of-mounting, when the heroic sister stepped
between her brother and the, robbers, and,
drawing, cocking, and presenting a pistol,
ordered her brother back to the tiouse and,
with eagle-piercing eye fastened. on the robbers,
end denth-dealing determination in her coun
tenance, dared them to hinder or touch her
brOther, and she would lay the robber dead at
her feet. Suffice it to say, the three brigands.
scampered off and left the family without
