own valuable canines to see that they are properly

is the moot conservative elements of society, and
Ought to be cherished and encouraged by all law

good temper and enlivens the heart." Therefore,

PIIOTOGRAMING THE DEAD-HEADS..-A Western
correspondent of the Railway Review says that on
the Chicago and Milwankie Railroad a plan has
been adopted which enables conductors to aseer
taM if the holders of "season passes" and "com
mutation tickets," who are riding on a train, are
the persons to whom they were issued. Photo
graph portraits about the size of a postage stamp,
of the real owner, are pasted upon the ticket, and
the conductor can thus determine at a glance
whether the holder is the person named on the
TEA.—The effect of the use of tea has been much
dimussed. Professor Johnstone, a good authority,
has asserted that it prevents the waste of the body,
and nourishes it. Dr. Smith, recently, in a lecture
before the society of Arts, maintained that tea was
good only in helping our digestion of fat or farina-
MIN food, and thus far was nourishing; but if
the tissues are wasted by exertions or too profuse
perspiration, tea is injurious. It does not suit a
elate habit, or much exertion, or low tempera
tures, or a defective akin. These opinions are not

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE NORTHERN CENTRAL
RAILWAY.—The sixth annual report of the Presi
dent and Directors of the Northern Central Rail
way has just been received. The report is lengthy
and ably compiled. The report of the President,
John S. Gittings, Esq., says
By apareful examination of the report made by
the President and Directors who preceded us, it
will be seen that there was a floating debt of $642,-
129—after adding the coupons due the next day,
and after giving credit for the cash assets. A part
of this debt was secured by the bonds of the com
pany, of which the market value may have been
$320,000, leaving to be provided for the sum of
$322,000 ; there were also suits and claims for a
very large amount, which have been for the most
part paid and settled by the present Board.
Such was the condition of the bed of the road
from Baltimore to Bridgeport that we had to relay
with new iron twenty-one miles; and upon the
balance, between the points named, to expend large
The machinery of the road was in as bad a con
dition as the track. In the first year we had to
expend $58,000 in repairs of machinery, and to
purchase $121,279.37 of machihery and ears. Had
the revenue of the company not exceeded our cx
poctations, we could not have overcome the diffi
culties which we have enumerated, even at the
heavy rate of interest we have been compelled to
submit to. The large increase in our business alone
justified the paying of this interest to sustain our
The report of the Superintendent, James. C.
Clarke,Esq, makes the following exhibit:
The total earnings of the road from all sources
have been $1,018,102.71, which is an increase of
$88,274.76 above the gross receipts of 1859.
The total expenses of the road have been $734,-
475.54, which is an increase over those of 1859 of
The expenses of the Transpoatation Department
have been $291,501.18, which is an inereaso of
$18,720.06 over those of 1859.
The expenses of the Machinery Department
have been $168,183.41, which is an increase of

over those of 1859.
The general expenses, as per treasurer's report,
for the year 1860 have been $35,259.80, which is
an increase of $1.4,487.29 over those. of 1859, Ms
account embraces items of expenditures which do
not properly belong to the Superintendent's report
For the details see treasurer's statement.
The working expenses for 1860 have been
72 14-100 per cent. of the revenue. By compari
son with last year you will observe an increase over
1859 of 8 78-100 per cent.
The net earnings of the road and its branches
for the year 1860 have been $288,627.17, which is
by $57,365,57 than that of 1859.
The large expenditures in 1860 were rendered
necessary by the general bad condition of the track
between Daltimre and Bridgeport, and also the
worn-down condition of the engines, freight and
The policy adopted by the management in 1859
was carried out during the present year, in re
building and improving in a permanent manner the
track, road-bed and superstructures, as well as
greatly improving the condition of the motive power
and rolling stock.
In order that the road might be worked with
economy and regularity, and dispatch given to the
business offering, it became necessary to expend
the large sum of $145,000 over and above a fair
allowance for regularly working and maintaining
the property in a condition to meet the require
ments of the public, as well as the expectation of

WORCESTER'S QUARTO DICTIONART IN BFttI4FR
—The London Literary Gazette speaks of the late
dictionary of Dr. Worcester in the following
terms : "Referring to our own standard of require
ments, we can only say that we have tested the
work by more than a thousand references for words
of rare occurrence and peculiar usage selected from
standard authors of various eras of our literature,
and in no instance have we thus far failed to dis
cover the word we sought, its correct definition,
and an explanation of its peculiarities. In ortho
graphy and pronunciation Dr. Worcester has con
sistently carried out those judicious and common
sense principles, which will, we feel assured, meet
the approval of all sound scholars and lovers of
our language, in its purity and integrity. lgn
tempted by the too common desire of dazzling by
ingenious novelty, he has kept firmly and steadily
to the lexicographer's true path, remembering that
his chief duty is to record accurately and honestly
the fesult of his researches. * * * Our lite
rary and educational labors have led us, as a mat
ter of necessity, to become more or less familial
with most of the standard dictionaries of dead and
living languages, which have appeared in England
or America during the last half century; and we
feel bound to avow it as our deliberate opinion that
to none of these can tWoreeeter's Quarto Diction
ary' be considered as in any respect inferior;
while as a complete and faithful dictionary of our
language in its present state, satisfying to the full
those requirements, the fulfillment of which we
have laid down as essential to such a work, we
know no work that can bear comparison with it.—
It embraces all the information which the most
utilitarian mind is likely to demand, adorned by
an extent of accurate erudition, and systematized
by a philosophical and methodical arrangement,
which is not only most agreeable and satisfactory
to every true scholar, but calculated to confer the
greatest benefit en the future study of our language ;
realizing in this respect, in a striking manner, the
truth of Lord Burleigh's well known remark
`Method is like packing things in a box ; a good
packer will get in half as much again as a bad one.'
* * We entertain an undoubted belief that
the lapse of.a few months will be sufficient to es
tablish Worcester's Dictionary as the acknow
ledged standard of reference among the scholars of
England and America."
TEE Musa TRADIII.—We were called in yester
day to witness a new style of bleeding. Having
been brought up to the idea that bleeding a mem
ber of the Legislature was legitimate, and accor
ding to Gunter, the conclusion arrived at, as a
matter of course, was the same; but on entering
a stable, meeting a horse attached to a pole and a
big string, with a bag banging on to the end of it,
dragged into the yard, and then and there har
pooned with a sail needle, made seven titan its
size, made us feel disposed to return, which we
did, and in Brant's Hall found one of the best spe

THE NORTH AND SOUTH,
PROF. WOOD'S HAIR RESTORATIVE.
READ WHAT A DISTINGUISHED PHYSICIAN
OF ST. LOUIS SATS OF IT.
St. Louis, July 10th, 1860.
0. J. WOOD, 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. I
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, neither has there been up to
After my hair was completely restored, I continued its
use by applying two or three times per month. Myhair
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
yon, 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 in traveling 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
they had used it, and without effect. In every instance,
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 one at 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 instances, 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 youwere now living in New
You are at liberty to publish this or to refer parties to
me. Any communication addressed to me, care box
1920, will be promptly answered. Yours, truly,
JAMES WHITE, id. D.
Warren Springs, Perry Co., PA., June 7th, 1850.
PROF. WOOD; Dear Sir—l was induced more than a
year ago to try your valuable flair Restorative, for the
purpose of cleansing my head of dandruff. I had suf
fered with it upon my head foryears, and had 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. Being there
at the time, I called at Gram & 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 had become quite white
in places, and, by the use of your preparation, has been
restored to ite 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 a child. I consider your preparationo 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, &c.,
H. H. ETTER,
Bloomington, Ind., July 30th, 1859.
Dear Sir here send you a. statement that I think
yeti are entitled to the benefit of. I am a resident of
Bloomington and have been for over ibirtyyears. lam
now over 50 years or 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 to have my hair, if possible, restored to its
origin'al color and. fineness, as it was in my younger days
a beautiful black, I concluded I would make the experi;
meat, commencing in a small way. I purchased one of
your small bottles, at one dollar, and commkmced using,
following directions as nearly as I could. I soon discov
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 used 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 me youthful - days when a boy in the
hills of Western Virginia. My head 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 me, "Butler, where
did you get that fine 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 HESTORATIVE.—In another col
umn will be found an advertisement of this well-known
and excellent preparation tor restoring gray hair to its
original color. The flair 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 many years as persons of the most re
liable character. Don't dye till you have tried this Re
storativo.—Boston Olive Branch.
WOOD'S HAIR ERSToRATivE.—We are not in the habit
of pulling 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 applicrtion, and joins with us in speaking of its
virtues.. Let all try it, and bald heads will be as rare as
snow in Summer.—.Solanaore
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 hadbecome 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 im
purities, which operate so injuriously to the hair. It
also has curative properties of another deseriptif n In
many cases pimples and other disfigurements of the skin
disappear wherever it 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.—Bos
ton Transcript, April 22, 'l9.
A GENUINE BooN.—ln our capacity as conductor of a
public journal we are called upon to advertise the cure
ails of the day, each of which claims to be unadultera
ted in its composition and infallible in its curative ef
fects—with what justice we leave our readers to deter-
Mine, In one instance, however—Prof. Wood's flair
Restorative—We are so well assured of the notable
qualities of the article that we give it our endorsement
as all that 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
brings its crop wherever applied. Our own thatch is
fortunately healthy, but we advise our friends with
sparsely growing hair to try the Restorative.—Columbia
q,17/C8 NOSTRUM —The majority of hair washes, hair
dyes, hair tonics, hair oils, and the numberlessprepara
tions which are now before the public under such ex
travagant, hyperbolical and fantastic titles as we Bee
paraded in show windows and newspaper headings, as
hair preparations, are all humbugs 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 cOlgted, make up, when in beautiful wrap
pers, and white trait glass bottles, the costliest character
of tongs, and when thus costly, are baptised with some
tri- syllable term, and caught at by verdant, young and
old of both sexes. Such is not the character' of Prot,
Wood's Hair Restorative. This gentleman comes before
the world without any "highfalutin" Xilophloforium or
any other astounding and startling catch-penny term ; he
simply advertises a Hair Restorative—what it expresses,
precisely—and as a Restorative it acts. Buy Professor
Wood's Hair Restorative, and as you value your scalp,
aye, your very brains, apply nothing else • for it maybe
that you will get some worse substance t h an perfumed
lard oil on your cranium. Remember, Wood's Restora
tive for the Hair is the best article extant.—ilrew York
