regarded as great nuisances in a house, in that
they engender female indolence. In other words,

OLD SCOTTISH MANNERS.-00e of the most inte
resting books of she season is the autobiography of
Dr. Alexander Carlyle. It is full of notes on his
tory and literature, and the men who made both
during a most fruitful epoch. The following illus
tration of old Scottish manners is a random page
from the Doctor's reminiscences :
In the summer of 1741, I remained for the most
part at home, and it was about that time that my
old schoolmaster, Mr. Heenan, having died of
fever, and Mr. John Halket having come in his
place, I was witaCali (a a scene that made a strong
impression upon me.
This Mr. Halket had been tutor to Lord Lovat's
eldest son, Simon , afterwards well known as Allen.
Fraser. Halket had remained for two years with
Levet, and knew all his ways. * * * Levet
brought his son Alexander to be placed with
Halket, from whom, understanding that I was a
young scholar living in the town, who might be
useful to his son, he ordered Halket to invite me
to dine with him and his company at Lucky Vint's,
a celebrated village tavern in the west end of the
His company consisted of Mr. Erskine of Grange,
with three or four gentlemen of the name of Fra
ser, one of whom was his man of business, together
with Halket, his son Alexander, and myself. The
two old gentlemen disputed for some time which of
them should say grace. At last Lovat yielded, and
gave us two or three pious sentences in French,
which Mr. Erskine and I understood, and we only.
As soon as we were set, Lovat asked me to send
him a whiting from the dish of fish that was next
me. As they were all haddocks, I answered that
they were not whitings, bat according to the pro
verb, he that got a haddock for a whiting was not
ill off. This saying takes its rise from the superi
ority of haddocks to whitings in the Virth of Forth.
Upon this, his Lordship stormed and swore more
than fifty dragoons; he was sure they must be
whitings, as be bad bespoke them. nalket tipped
me the wink, and I retracted, saying that I had
but little skill, and, as his Lordship had bespoke
them, I must certainly be mistaken. Upon this he
calmed, and I lent him one, which he was quite
pleased with, swearing again that he never could
eat a haddock all his life.
The landlady told me afterwards that as he had
been very peremptory against haddocks, and she
had no other, she had made her cook carefully
scrape out St. Peter's mark on the shoulders, which
she had often done before with success. We had a
very good plain dinner. As the claret was excel.
lent, and circulated fast, the two old gentlemen
grew very merry, and their conversation became
youthful and gay. What I observed was, that
Grange, without appearing to flatter, was very ob
servant of Lovat, and did everything to please
him. He bad provided Geordy Sym, who was Lord
Drummore's piper, to entertain Lovat at dinner;
but though he was reckoned the best piper in the
country, Lovat despised him, and said he was only
fit to play reels to Grange's oyster-wemen. He
grew frisky at last, however, and upon Hate Vint,
the landlady's daughter, coming into the room, he
insisted on her staying to dance with him.
She was a handsome girl, with fine black eyes
and an agreeable person, and though without the
advantages of dress or manners, she, by means of
her good sense and bashful air, was very alluring.
She was a mistress of Lord Drummore, who lived
in the neighborhood and though her mother
would not part with her, as she drew much com
pany to the house, she was said to be faithful to
him, exeept only in the ease of Capt. Merry, who
married her, and soon after went abroad with his
regiment. • * Loyal was at this time seventy
five, and Orange not much younger; yet the wine
and the young woman emboldened them to dance
a reel, till Kate, observing Lovat's legs as thick as
posts, fell a laughing, and ran off. She missed her
second course of kisses, as was then the fashion of
the country, though she had endured the first.
Suicinx.—John Cathcart, incarcerated in the
jail of Clearfield, awaiting execution for the mur
der of his wife, committed suicide on Sunday eve
ning last. The Republican, in chronicling the
fact, gives the following particulars :
This individual has fully demonstrated that the
way of the transgressor is hard. A man of accu
mulated brutish habits, and guilty of the highest
and most awful crimes known to the liws of God
and man—murder and suicide—he has been made
to suffer all the pangs that mortal flesh could en
dure in this world, end his reward he the next is
better imagined than expressed. The decay of his
physical appearance since he had learned the de
cision of the Supreme Court in his ease, shows that
he must have endured the most excruciating men
tal agony. His appearance was ghastly in the ex
treme, and should be a lasting warning to all trans
It seems that he must have contemplated sui
cide for some time. He had torn his undershirt
into narrow strips, and had sewed them together,
with which he had tied his hands tegetbcr, which
he must have done after he had tied the handker
chief to the bar of iron and around his neck; which
he done by standing on the side of his bed. He
had run his one leg through his arms, which
brought him to a stooping position. His other
leg was chained to the floor, the chain being long
enough to permit him to be in bed. After being
thus prepared, he undoubtedly jumped off the bed.
His hands and wrists were of the same purple
color of his neck, and must have suffered great
pain. The foot upon which the' hain was fastened
was resting on the floor.
LADIES SHOULD READ NEWSPAPERS.—It is a
great mistake in female education to keep a young
lady's time and attention devoted to only the fash
ionable literature of the day. If you would qual
ify her for conversation you must give her some
thing to talk about, give her education with the
actual world audits transpiring events. Urge her
to read newspapers and become familiar with the
present character and improvement of our race.—
history is of some importance, but the past world
is dead, and we have little comparatively to do
with it. Our thoughts and our concerns should be
for the present world, to know what it is , and im
prove its condition. Let her have an intelligent
conversation concerning the mental, political and
religious improvements •of our time. Let the
gilded annuals and poems on the centre-table be
kept apart of the time covered with journals. Let
the family—men, women and children—read the
AN 'ENGINE OF WAR.—There is now being es.
hibited to the citizens of Baltimore a new gun, or
movable fortress, styled by the inventor Dickin
son's Peace Maker. It is a centrifugal gun, throw
ing from one hundred to five hundred balls per
minute, of from one ounce to twenty-four pounds.
The gun is worked wholly by steam, neither pow
der nor caps being used, and is certainly a very
terrible engine of war. It was in operation on
Thursday, for the purpose of exhibiting its powers
to a number of military officers, all of whom de
clared it a powerful and destructive weapon. It
is movable, can be put in readiness for action in a
few minutes, and easily worked by four men, who,
as well as the machine, are safely esconced behind
an impregnable steel armor. It is certainly a
great curiosity, and worthy the attention of those
interested in gunnery.
THE ROEMER Housa.—Our friend Jolly, of the
Tyrone Star, sometimes gives "an opinion as is an

himself in condition again by feeding at the Bueh
ler House for a few days. In his last, Jolly says:
We have had occasion, more than once, to speak
of this excellent hotel. We are pleased to learn
that Mr. Bolton, the gentlemanly proprietor,..is

READ WHAT A DISTINGUISHED PHYSICIAN
OF ST. LOUIS SAYS OF IT.
St. Louis, July 10th, 1860.
0. J. Woon, Esq.: Dear Sir—Allow me the pleasure
and satisfaction to transmit to you the beneficial effects
of your Hair Restorative after a trial of five years. r
commenced using your Restorative in January, 1855,
since which time I have not been without a bottle on
hand. When I commenced the use, my hair was quite
thin, and at least one-third gray. A. few applications
stopped its falling, and in three weeks time there was
not a gray hair to be found, wither has there been up to
After my hair was completely restored, I continued its
use by applying two or three times per month. hiy hair
has ever continued healthy, soft and glossy, and my scalp
perfectly free from dandruff. I do not imagine the facts
above mentioned will be of any particular advantage to
you, or even flatter your vanity at this late day, as I am
well aware they are all well known already, and even
more wonderful ones throughout the Union. I have oc
cupied my time intraveling the greater part of the time
the past three years, and have taken pride and pleasure
in recommending your Restorative and exhibiting its
effects in my own case. In several instances I have met
with people that have pronounced it a humbug; saying
had used it, and without effect. In every
however, it proved by probing the matter, that they had
not used the article at all, but had used some new arti
cle, said to be as good as yours, and selling at about half
the-price. I have noticed two or three articles myself
advertised as above, which I have no doubt are humbugs.
It is astonishing that people will patronize an article of
no reputation, when there is oneat hand that has been
proved beyond a doubt.
Apparently, some of those charlatans have not brains
enough to write an advertisement, as I notice they have
copied yours, word for word in several instance)), merely
inserting some other name in place of yours.
I have, within the past five years, seen and talked with
more than two thousand persons that have used your
preparation with perfect success—some for baldness,
gray hair, scald head, dandruff, and every disease the
scalp and head are subject to.
I called to see you, personally, at your original place
of business here but learned you were now livinginliew
You are at liberty to publish this or to refer parties to
me. Any communication addressed to me, care box

PROF. Woon : Dear Sir—l was induced more than a
year ago to try your valuable Hair Restorative, for the
purpose of cleansing my head of dandru ff . I bad suf
fered with it upon my head for years, andhad never been
able to get anything to do me any good in removing it,
although I had tried many preparations, until I saw
your advertisement in a Harrisburgpaper. Beingthere
at the time, I called at Gross & Ross's Drug Store
and bought a bottle, and now am prepared to recommend
it to universal use, for it has completely removed all dand
ruff from my head, and an application once in two weeks
keeps it free from any itching or other unpleasantness.—
I must also state that my hair bad become quite white
in places, and, by the use of your preparation, has been
restored to its original color. lam now 50 years of age,
and although I have used two bottles of the Restora
tive, no one has any knowledge of it, as I allow a few
gray hairs to remain in order to have my appearance
comport with my age. My head is now of less trouble
to me, in keeping it clean, &c., than at any time since
I have been &child. I consider your preparation f great
value, and although I do not like to expose myself, I
consider it my duty to say so. You can use this, or any
part of it, in any shape you think proper, if it is worth
anything to you. Yours,
H. H. ETTER.
ELIAS HOWE, Tit
Bloomington, Ind., July 50th, 1859.
Dear Sir :—I here send you a statement that I think
yeu are entitled to the benefit of. I am a resident of
Bloomington and have been for over thirtyyears. lam
now over 50 years of age. For about twenty years past
my hair has been turning considerably gray, and was
almost entirely white, and very stiff and unpliant. I
had seen a number of certificates of the very wonderful
effect of your Hair Restorative, but supposed there was
more fiction than truth in them; but entertaining a
strong desire le baTO my hair, if possible, restored to its
original color and fineness, as it was in my younger days
a beautiful black, I concluded I would make the experi
ment, commencing in a small way. I purchased one of
your small bottles, at one dollar, and commenced using,
following directions as nearly at I Could. I soon diseov
ered the dandruff removed, and my hair, that was fall
ing off in large quantities, was considerably tightened,
and a radical change taking place in the color. I have
continued to use it till I have peed three of your small
bottles, and just begun on the fourth. I have now as
pretty a head of dark brown, or light black hair, as any
man, or as I had in my youthful days when a boy in the
hills of Western Virginia. My bead is entirely clear of
dandruff; and the hair ceased entirely falling off, and is
as soft and fine, and feels as oily, as though it was just
from under the hands of a French shampooer. Many
of my acquaintances frequently say to we, "Butler, where
did you get that line wig?" I tell them it was the ef
fects of your Restorative. It is almost impossible to
convince them that it is the original hair of the same
old gray head. Yours, truly,
FREDERICK T. BUTLER,
Bloomington, Monroe County, Indiana.
PROF. WOOD'S HAIR RESTORATIVE.—In another col
umn will be found au advertisement of this well-known
mud excellent preperetien for restoring gray hair to its
original color. The Hair Restorative also cures cuta
neous eruptions, and prevents the hair falling off. We
have seen many authentic testimonials in proof of these
assertions, some of which are from gentlemen whom we
have known for hinny years as persons of the most re•
liable character. Don't dye till you have triad this Re
storative.—Boston Olive Brandt.
WoOD'S HAIR RESTORATIVE.—We are not in the habit
of puffing every new ciscovery, for nine cases of ten
they are quack nostrums, but we take great pleasure in
recommending Professor Wood's article to all whose hair
is falling off, or turning gray. Our well-known contri
butor, Finley Johnson, Esq., has experienced the bene
fits of its application, and joins with us in speaking of its
virtues. Let all try it, and bald heads will be us rare as
snow in Sainmor.—Baltimore Patriot.
WOOD'S HAIR RESTORATIVE —Unlike most specifics,
this is proved, by unimpeachable evidence, to possess
great efficacy as a restorer of the hair to its pristine
vigor. Where the head had become almost bald because
of sickness, the use of this article has produced a beau
tiful growth of thick, glossy hair. It is therefore a val
uable preparation for all classes. Its ingredients are
such as to effectually eradicate dandruff and other
purities, which operate so injuriously to the hair. It
also has curative properties of another description In
many eases pimples and other disfigurements of the skin
disappear whereverit is used. There is no hazard at
taching to the trial of this remedy, and its effects can
only be beneficial, as the compound, if it does not cause
a manifest improvement, is incapable of doing harm, as
its component elements are perfectly innoxious.—nos
lon Transcript, April 23,
A GENUINE Loon.—ln our capacity as conductor of a
public journal we are called upon to advertise the cure
alls of the day, each of which claims to be unadultera
ted in ite Composition and infallible in its curtain ef
fects—with what justice we leave our readers to deter
mine. In one instance, however—Prof. Wood's Hair
Restorative—we are so well assured of the notable
qualities of the article that we give it our endorsement
as all:tbat its inventor and vender claims it to be. Its
effect upon a falling head of hair is universally known to
be magical; like lime or guano on exhausted land, it
biings its crop wherever applied. Our own thatch is
fortunately healthy, bnt we advise our friends with
sparsely growing hair to trythe itestorative.—Columbia
• QUACK 'NOSTRUM —Theo majority of hair washes, hair
dyes, hair tonics, hair oils. and the numberlessprePara
, flans which are now before the public under such ex
travagant, hyperbolical and; fantastic titles as we see
paraded in show windows and newspaper headings, as
hair preparationfi, are all liaMbuge of the first water;
their real merit, when they possess any, is, that they do
no harm. Hog's lard, whale .oil, lard. oil, sweet oil,
scented and colored, make up, when in beautiful wrap
pers, and white dint glass bottles, the costliest character
of tonics, and when thus costly, are baptised with some
tri-syllableterre, and: caught at by verdant young find
old of both sexes. Such is not the character of Prof.
Wood's Clair Restorativ e... Thitigentleman comes before
the world without any "highfalutin"'Xilophloforium or
any other astodnding and startling catch-penny 'arm ; he
simply advertises a Hair Restorative—what it expresses,
