We have been compelled to raise the club subscription
price to one dollar and fifty cents in order to save our
selves from actual loss. Paper has risen, including
taxes, about twenty-five per cent., and is still rising;
and when we tell our Democratic friends, candidly, that
we can no longer afford to sell the Weekly PATRIOT awn
Mucky at one dollar a year. and must add fifty cents or
stop the publication, we trust they will appreciate our
position, and, instead of withdrawing their subscrip
tions, go to work with a will to increase our list in every
county in the State. We have endeavored. and shall
continue our efforts, to make the paper useful as a party
organ, and welcome as a news messenger to every fam
ily. We flatter owreelvee that it hue not been without
some influence in producing the glorious revolution in
the politica of the State achieved at the late election;
and if fearlessness in the discharge of duty, fidtdity to
the principles of the party, and an anxious desire to pro
mote its interest', with some experience and a moderate
degree of ability, can be made serviceable hereafter, the
Weekly PATRIOT AND UNION wiu not be less useful to
the party or lest welcome to the family circle in the fn.
tare than it has been in the past. We confidently look
for increased encouragement in this great enterprise,
and appeal to every influential Democrat in the State to
lend us his aid in running our supsoription list up to
twenty or thirty thousand. The expense to each indi
vidual is trifling, the benefit to the party may be great.
Believing that the Democracy of the State feel the ne
cessity of sustaining a fearless central organ, we make
We appeal to them for assistance with the fullest confi
dence of success.
The same reasons which induce us to raise the price
of the Weekly, operate in regard to the Daily paper, the
price of which is also increased. Tkeadditional cost to
each subscriber will be but trifling; and, while we can
not persuade oursel fee that the change necessarily made
will result in any diminution of our daily circulation,
yet, were we certain that such would be the conse
quence, we should still be compelled to make it, or suf
fer a ruinous loss. Under these circumstances we must
throw ourselves upon the generosity, or, ratber, the
justice of the public, and abide their verdict, whatever
it may be.
The period for which many of our subscribers have
paid for their paper being on the eve of expiring, we
take the liberty of issuing this notice, reminding them
of the same, in order that they may

We shall also take it as an especial favor if our present
subscribers will urge upon their neighbors the fact that

SitOIIEAR CASE.—Some ten months ago, says
the New Haven \ .Larna/. Mr. Charles Monroe,
of Fair Haven, was at Lagos and at Accra, on
the Guinea coast, whither he had sailed as
mate, with Captain Post, in the bark Elizabeth,
andiabile there he drank of the water of that
part of the warld, without thinking to take the'
precautions commonly in use among the na
tives for the prevention of a terrible disease
known as Guinea worm. It appears that the
Africans always boil this water before drink
ing, in order to destroy the minute. invisible
egg of the worm, which is so small that it is
absorbed by the blood vessels from the stom
ach, and is in that manner distributed in dif
ferent parts of the body, usually the legs,
where it is hatched, and after a long time
makes its appearance, in the shape of a white,
thread-like worm, pointed on both ends, and it
twines and twi-ts all about the muscles and
veins, and arteries, producing no particular
feeling of uneasiness until some part of its
body comes near the skin, when had inflamma
tions take place. It was in March last that
Mr. Monroe began to be troubled with them,
and for three months be has not walked a step.
He is in the Connecticut State Hospital under
treatment, and one worm has been taken from
the bottom of his foot that measures over two
feet long. The way it is done is this: When
the surface of the skin is so pricked or irrita
ted as to show where the "critter" is, a thread
is fastened to him and a small weight attached
to the ether end of the thread. The worm gets
tired of pulling against so steady a strain and
gives ground a trifle day by day, and as he
comes out a little spool winds him up until he
is all out. The pain is very great—for forty
n;ghts Mr. Monroe hardly slept on account of
the suffering. One worm is now in process of
being drawn from his heel, and those medical
men who never saw a case of the kind are
much interested. Great care has to be taken
not to pull too hard, •beceuse the worm would
break and the troublebe much prolonged. Its
medical name is Dracunculus, and it grows to
be several feet in length. It is endemic in hot
countries.. When the bother commences, it
Appears under the chin like a varicose vein,
and after a painful boil has been formed and
broken, the head of the animal is discovered.
Mr. Monroe is very patient under this strange
hoe before long to see 'him
TERRIBLE TORNADO.—On Wendesday eve
ning last, about half past 9 o'clock, the village
of Cary, in Genessee county, was visited by a
most destructive tornado. Coming from a
westerly direction it struck the earth a few
Miles west of the village, and along its entire
track, which was about three-quarters of a
mile wide, a terrible scene of desolation and
destruction was presented the following morn
ing. The growing or.ope on the area over which
it swept were entirely destroyed, miles of fen
ces hurled and scattered over the country,
large barns removed some distarace from their
foundations, and several farm houses riddled
by the immense hailstones as though they had
teen the target for an army; every window ex
posed to its fury was completely demolished ;
chimneys and outbuildings offered but little re
sistance. Reaching the village of Cary the tem
pest seemed bent on destruction, scarcely a win
dow facing the v e t bat what was destroyed. In
the seminary Waling over five hundred panes
of glass were demolished, and the rain, which
poured in torrents at the lime, flooded every
Tonto In which the storm king had forced an
entrance; four large chimneys were here bro
ken off by the roof; other prominent buildings
in the village shared a like fate, and a more
desolate scene we never looked upon. The
fruit crop is entirely destroyed where the storm
struck; apples and pears beaten to a pumice
by the blacks of bail, and the chotteo and
other fruit trees almost entirely atript of both
leaves and fruit. As for garden stuff scarcely
a vestige remains; vines, cabbages, corn—eve
rything broken off and split to shreds. Im
mense trees, that had withstood the storms of
a century, were prostrated, and everything
yielded to the fell destroyer. Mr. Wl:l:tire is
one of the principal sufferers, and his loss will
not fall short of $l,OOO. Mr. Taylor, his
neighbor, is a loser to the, extent of $600.

scribes a terrible scene which has just been
witnessed in broad daylight in that town. A
man who had led a very dissolute llfe, and
whose wife had in consequence left him, and
was residing with three children at the h' use
of her father, forcibly entered the dwelling,
and, ascending to a room on an upper story
where his wife was, seized her and compelled
her to jump with him from the window into
the street. The shock of the fall was increased

with blood, was removed to the house of a
neighbor, her life being despaired of. The
man was taken to a hospital dreadfully injured.
Among the many novel and curious public
companies which active speculation brings to
the surface in London and in Paris, one just
formed in the latter city is deserving of notice.
It is entitled "La Compagnie Generale des
Chiffons," and it is proposed to purchase the
gatherings of the chiPniera of that capital, who
are well known for their excellent scavenger
qualifications. The prospectus states that
2.5,000 persons practice this calling in Paris,
and that large proite may be made out of
the produce of their collections.
PATRIOTISM OF POLISH WOMEN,--A. letter
from Poland, in an English paper, says : "A
long stay in Poland has a most depressing ef
fect on the spirits. The universal mourning
worn by the women haunts yon even in your
sleep, and you feel that 'black,' after all, is
the true ghost color. Wherever you go you
find the same poor helpless creatures herding
together in the churches ; and even there not
always free from the brutality of the Russian
soldiery. Under the pretence of searching for
arms, the sanctity of the house of God has re
peatedly been violated, and sentries stationed
at the door not unfrequently subject ladies to
annoyance, if not insult, in going in and out.
It, is the attitude of the women which annoys
the Russians still more than that of the men.
There is no sacrifice to which they, will not
readily submit, and their spirit is indomitable.
From the Pricess Sapicha to the petty trades
nan's wife, trey devote themselves heart and
soul to the cause, slaving night and day at ma
king clothes, conveying arms and ammunition
to the insurgent camp, remaining all night un

captives, and performing other heroic acts.—
Combined with this power of self-sacrifice, Po

ATMOSPHERIC PHENOMENA.--The theory of
Professor Espy, that rain may be produced in
any locality by that disturbance of the atmos
phere which results from great or continued
conflagrations, is supposed to have found con
firmation during the ri hellion. It has certainly
been remarked that rain showers of considera
ble violence or duration have often followed or
attended great battles. But this fact does not
settle the question whether the immediate cause
of these showers is the explosion of gunpowder.
Indeed, before firearms were used is war, the
phenomenon of rain after battle was noticed.
Thus Plutarch, in his life of Caius Marius,
speaking of a battle that occurred fourteen hun
dred years before the use of gunpowder in Eu
rope, says : " The opinion of Archilochus is
confirmed—that fields are fattened with blood.
It is observed, indeed, that extraordinary rains
generally fall after great battles ; whether it
be that come Deity chooses to wash and purify
the earth with water from above, or whether
the blood 'and corruption, by the moist and
heavy vapors they emit, thicken the air, which
is liable to be altered by the smallest cause."
A CHARMING CONSTITVENCY.—T he Louisville
Journal states that Hen. Aaron Harding, Union
candidate for Congress in the Fourth Kentucky
district, is having rather a hard time in his

horses and negroes, which, like himself, 'had
fled to the woods for safety. It is reported that
Mr. Harding has since reached bis home un

it imprudent for him to resume his canvass.—
However, he bad visited and spoken iu all the

THE GREAT OCEAN IRON CLADS.—Tbe great
mewl iron clads Dictator and Puritan have at
last assumed the shape of complete vessels, and
it is hardly exaggeration to say that they sur
pass any craft ever built here. The hulls are
nb w almost finished, the sides being made with
a more formidable armor than those of any
other vessels. Thd turrets will be of immense
magxitude, no less than two feet (24 inches)
of iron being laid on with the usual wooden
backing, in the most improved fashion. These
vessels are to he 320 feet long, 50 feet wide,
and will have 20 feet depth of hold. Their en
gines are to have each two upright cylinders of
100 inches diameter, and four feet stroke of
piston. Their screws will be 21 feet 0 inches
in diameter; pitch, 32 feet. Their boilers are
six in number, three on each side, and are of
return tubular pattern. They are expected to
make 20 miles an hour. Their bows are as
sharp as a needle.—Journal of Commerce.

' ANCIENT COIN.—The Hartford Courant says
that Mr. James E Bidwell, of Middletown,
Conn., has a piece of silver money of ancient
Greece, probably, a tetradrachan, the value of
which, aOooroling to present standard, is about
fifteen cents. It is belieied to have been
s auped about three hut d ed years beto e
Christ. On one side is a head of Minerva, and
on the reverse is a figure of an owl, with a
spill; of olive and the Greek letters ATHE, a
contraction of Athena or Minerva, the patro
ness of Athens. Th 6 coin is somewhat less in
circumference than an American quarter, but
much thicker. It has been considerab y defaced
and worn, but• the letters and figures can all
be traced. One does not often see a piece of
money issued before the Christian era.
AN OLD WOMAN'S WELCOME TO THE FLAG

WBATHIES AND MK CROPR. —The recent
copious rains in the Middle and Eastern States
have operated to the serious detriment of the
hay fields and the rye harvest, a considerable
quantity having been lost and much which has
been got in is badly damaged. But while these
crops have suffered, others have gained won
derfully by the abundant moisture, for which,
three weeks ago, they were suffering greatly.
The after swath is coming in at a rate that
promisee to make up the deficiency of the first
crop. Corn is growing rapidly, is of good co
lor and looks quite promising, wherever it got
a fair start before the drought. From ihe West
we hear that corn is forward and very promi
sing. With slight exceptions the promise now
of abundant crops of the principal staples may
be set down as very encouraging, though the
harvest will ,be late. Fruit is very uneven in
its product in different sections. In some or
chards there will be but. very little, while in
others the prospect is good. • It is difficult to
decide upon the aggregate supply unless one
has been over a larger tract of country than
that from which we have heird.—Boston Tra
THE NEW TEA PLANT, said to have been re
cently discovered in Penna., proves to he an old
acquaintance, instead of a new one. Mr James
L. Jackson writes to The Tioga Agitator all
about it. He says he has used it it for several
years, and prefers it to the imported article.—
“It, is the Ceanothus Americana of botanists ;
was much used by our good sires in the days of
the Revolutionary War under tbenames of Lib
erty Tea, American, Walpole, and New . Jersey
Tea, and is also known as 'Red Root ;' it is a
small, indigenous shrub, growing on pine lands
throughout the United States. The root is as
tringent, and imparts a red color to water.—
The leaves when chewed are slightly as ringent
and mucilaginous, and the plant has tonic
properties. We have known several weakly
persons to consider themselves much benefited
by its use, although they were ignorant of its

we believe is in the month of August, when an
hour spent on the mountain will secure more
than a family willuse."
THE CLERGY AND THE DRAYT.—A correspoi
dent who has read our quotations from and
oomincista upon, "A Now England Clergy
man's" protest in the Springfield Republican, is
reminded of a passage in history which seems
quite germain to the matter :
"Odo, the brother of William the conqueror,
was a bishop as well as a military chieftain of
great skill and valor, and a sagacious politi
cian. His regular services had been rewarded
by many endowments, and among them he was
created Earl of Kent. Having committed trea
son, the king ordered his arrest. Odo claimed
his immunity as an ecclesiastic, the officers of
justice scrupled to execute the command,
whereupon the king himself arrested him with
hirt.,•wn band, saying, 'God forbid that I should
touch" he Bishop of Bayeux, but I make the
Earl of Kent my prisoner.' "
God forbid that we should compel an embas
sador of Christ to fight, but let not a single
pulpit politician, of the proper age, escape his
place in the ranks, if drawn, unless he pays
NEGRO RECRIIIT9.—A correspondent of the
Christian Reflector, who has bad the care of
some of the negroes at Port Royal, says they

there will be no large increase to the Gamy
from the ranks of the negroes. The negro
regiments were exclusively employed in dig

of the two regiments which were first formed
from the free blacks in-New Orleans, and which
held the extreme right of oho lino of oiroutu ,
vallations. A letter from St. Louis says. "re
cruiting fir the negro regiment under Colonel
Pike, in this city and State, has been stopped
by order of General Schofield, and the five
hundred recruits are ordered to be sent to St.

Wuhan, on Wnsar.?—The Father of Waters
is in a sad way. It is running down, till instead
of a river it is but a creek, with fair prospect
of being but a rill. The steamboats pay no at
tention to channels—" slush" their botteSms

is low does not half express matters, and unless
housekeepers will take pains to empty slops
into it, there will, in a short time, be grass
growing where eret the briny trine did play.
Birds have been prohibited from drinking water
from the river two weeks since, and we hear
that it is intended to grease the fish that the
moisture they now absorb may be saved for
nalgation. Passengers on boats are not al
lowed to wash their bands and faces, under the
penalty of being stuck on a sand bar !—La

Uncle Sam for a new suit of clothes and the

other counties, we very much question whether
twenty thousand men will be added to the army
from the entire State.—Lancaster inteitigencer.
• FREEDOM or THE Pazaa—THE VOICE OP
FORDIEJI Days.—Francis P- Blair, the father of
the present Post Master General, spoke as fol
lows in a powerful editorial article in the
Washington Globe, when he was its editor, in
the days of Jackson's administration. Hear
6! Under no possible emeetteney, not even in
civil insurrection, or amid the throes of civil
war, can this government justify official inter
ference with the freedom of speech, or of the
press, any more than it can with the freedom
of the ballot. The licentiousness of the
tongue and of the pen is a minor evil compared
with the licentiousness of arbitrary power."
WHERE THEY ARE TO Go —General Meade's
army, it is said, will be filled up by the drafted
men, each existing regiment to he filled up to
its maximum from this source. The command
ers of the various regiments are to make requi
sitions for the numbers required to fill their
ranks, and detachments wilt be forwarded ac
cordingly. The drafted men will not have to
complain of lying idle in wimp, but will have
an opportunity at once of seeing active service.
