Take Particular Notice. -
Dr. J. addresses all those.who have injured themselves
by improper Indulge ~ce and solitary habits, which ruin
both body and mind, unfitting them for either business,
study, society or marriage.
These are some of the sad and melancholly effects pro
duced by early habits of youth, viz: Weakness of the
Beek and Limbs, Pains in the Head, Dimness of Sight,
Lose of Muscular Power, Palpitation of the heart, Dye
popsy Nervous Irratibil ty, Derangement of the Digestive
Functions, General Debility, Symptoms of Consumption,
MENTALT.T.—The fearful effects on the mind are much
to be dreaded—Loss of Memory, Confusion of Ideas, De
pression of Spirits, Evil Forbodings, Avers on to Society,
Self Distrust, Love of solitude, Timidity, do., are some of
the evils produced.
Toomuste of persons of all ages can now judge what
is the cause of their declining health, losing their vigor,
becoming weak, pale, nervous and emaciated, having a
singular appearance about the eyes, cough and symptoms
Who have injured themselves by a certain practice In
dedged In when alone, a When frequently learned froni
evil companions, or at school, the effects of which are
nightly felt, even when asleep, and if not cured renders
marriage impossible, end destroys both mind and body,
should apply immediately.
What a pity that a young man, the hope of 10s coun
try, the darling of his parents, should be snatched from
all prospects hnd enjoyments of life, by the oomequence
of deviating from the path of nature and indulging in a
certain secret habit. Such persons nom, before contem
reflect that a sound mind and body are the most neces
aary requisites to promote connubial happiness. Indeed,
without these, the Journey through life becomes a Weary
pilgrimage ; the prospect hourly darkens to the view
.the mind becomes shadowed with despair and filled with
the melancholly ren mien that the happiness of another
becomes blighted with our own.
Disease of Imprudence.
When the misguided and imprudent votary of pleasure
finds that he has imbibed the meads of this painful dis
ease, it too often hapens that an tll-timed sense of shame
or dread of discovery, deters him from applying to those
who, iron elocution and respectabtlity, can alone be
friend him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms on
this burr d disease make their appearance, such as ul
cerated sore throat, diseased nose, nocturnal pains In
the head and limbs, dimness of sight, deafness, nodes on
the shin bones end arms, blotches on the h-ad, face and
extremities, progressing with [rightful rapidity, till at
last the palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fall
in, and the victim of this awful disease become a horrid
object of commiseration, till death puts a period to his
dreadful sufferings, by sending him to " that Urdiscov
vered Country from whence no traveler returns."
It is a aselancholly fact that thousands fall victims •to
this terrible disease, owing to the unskillinMess of Igno
rant pretenders, who by the use of that Deadly Poison,
Mercury, ruin theconstitution and make the reiddue o

To Hon. Edwin H. - Staunton, Secretary of War:
Ou arriving eight miles below here last even
ing, we ascertained that the enemy had two
batteries here supported by a force (number un
known) of infantry. A combined attack was
made at 7 A. es., to-day. The regiment under
my command, the 46th Indiana, landed twenty
four and a half miles below the battery, and
skirmishers were thrown ont, who drove in
the enemy's pickets. The gunboats then moved
up and opened on their battery. A rifled shot
from one of the b dteries penetrated the steam
draw of the Mound City; disabling, by,scald
ing, most of her crew.
Apprehensive that some similar accident
might happen to the other gunboats and leave
my small force without their support, I sig
nalled the guubiats to cease firing, and we
would storm the battery. They ceased- exactly
at the right moment, and any men carried the
battery gallantly. The infantry were driven
from the support of the guns, the gunners shot
at their post, and their commanding officer
Frye, formerly of " the United States navy,
wounded and taken prisoner.
Eight brass andiron guns with ammunition
were captured. The enemy's loss is unknown.
We have buried seven or eight of their dead
and other dead and wounded are being brought
in. The casualties among my own comman d
are small, the only real loss. being from the
escaping steam in the Mound City; she will
probably be repaired and ready to proceed with
us up the river to-morrow. A full report will be
made as early as possible. -

The Federals at Ashland.
From the Richmond Whig, June 2
On Thursday morning, at nine o'clock, the
enemy's cavalry, followed by infantry, entered
Ashland. Our troops, quarter masters and
commissaries, and even our pickets, had with-.
drawn, leaving valuable stores behind, inclu
ding cars filled with flour,&c. The village was
swarming with the people of the neighborhood
and negroes, who were helping themselves to
the public stores.
Mr. Critcher, of Westmoreland, and Mr.
Grimes, of King George, assumed authority to
order about forty negroes to push the cars
about one hundred and fifty yards to the point
of descent, whence they would run three miles
toward Richmond ; but after removing eleven
cars to the point, the Yankee cavalry dashed
into the village, and Messrs. Critcher and
Grimes escaped unpursued.
Burial of General Ashby.
The appearance of the late General Turner
Ashby as he lay in his coffin at the Parish
House, Charlottsville, is thus described :
"He lay there as if a gentle slumber had fal
len upon him, his physiognomy indicating re
solution, determination and firmness—heavy,
black eyelashes and eyebrows, long black and
thick flowing beard and moustache, prominent
forehead, showing quick perception and
thought, dark complexion, and an honest Vir
ginia face. He was about forty years of age."
Rebel Accounts of the Rebel. Raid on
The Richmond Despatch of the 14th instant
contains a lengthy and most exaggerated ac
count of the recent bold raid of Stewart's Cav
alry on Tunstall's Station and the rear of Gen.
01cCiellan's army. We have not room for this
specimen of Rebel exaggeration, but the fol
lowing concluding paragraphs sums up the re
Once more within our lines all went merry
as as marriage bell. Quickly the (Arty, weary
hand sped along the Charles City road, dawn

our camps faint and famished, but the noblest
band of heroes that ever bestrode a charger or

"What, then, was the general result?"
asked we of a wearied, dusty trooper, watering
his jaded and faithful animal by a roadside
spring. "The result," answered he, proudly,
but mgch exhausted, "the result ? We have
been in the saddle from Thursday morning until
Saturday noon, never breaking rein or bmalOng
fast ; we have whipped ths__u„„?..,-- ,,- tierever he

mounting and trotting away, "I wouldn't - Mt.

tory cannot show such another exploit as this
of Stewart's !" He spoke the truth, honestly
and roughly, as a true soldier serving under
an incomparable leader. More words are not
now needed—the whole country is astonished
and applauds—McClellan is disgraced—Stewart
and his troopers. are now forever in history.
The "valuable transports" burned were two
schooners loaded with hay, and the wagons
burnt did not exceed fifty. Each wagon hav
ing six horses or mules, had they burnt 200 as
claimed they would have captured 1,200 horses
instead of 300, which is all they
profess to have taken back with them. They
in reality captured 100 prisoners, mostly wag
oners and negroes, and less than 200 horses.
The whole of the property destroyed was
worth about $lOO,OOO, instead of $3,000,000,
as the dispatch reports. The scores of the
enemy "killed and wounded," did not exceed
a dozen, and most of these were unarmed
teamsters and the sick soldiers in a railroad
train. The cavalry with which they had a
skirmish near Haitovsr Court House consisted
of three companies only.
