they proceeded to carry the war directly

only of the Federal Constitution, but of every
principle of public law. While the effect of
this policy has been to unite the South, ths
proclamations of the 22.Cand 24th of Septem

signally failed to disturb the relation of the

Union College, SakeseetadY,
Since I first publicly acknowledged the
iciest benefit which I received from the skill

ly pared upon Me frem all parts of the coun
try, from parties desiring to learn the partic

at the number'df individuals who are affected

and pirefire feel it more and more a sacred
day which I owt:Serthiller: sufferers to direct
ham to a proper and reliable source to obtain
the benefit they so much covet, and which so
many afflicted one* lave hitherto sought in
vain, just as r hid WI 'piilviotis to applying
to Dr. Lighthill.

annoyance and discomfort' to me. Last year
the other ear also. became ,dissaled, and both
ears disobaird Mysllosi matter, very profuse
and highly offensive. My hearing became
Very much impaired,, and' the dischirge pro
duced the gamiest debility ifbody and depres
sion of spirits.' I applied to my family-physi
Man and other practitioners, without deriving
any benefit, and almost despaired of being
'restored to health, when, providentially, I
applied to Dr. Ligethi/l. Under his treatment
, my hearing began to hoprOte 'at once, and
continued to 'do so until, in a comparatively
',short Ma c beth - ars were healed, the die
ohari-rentiived and, my hearing rastoind. et
'firet Ifeared the cure would not be permanent,
,or that the stoppage of a discharge 'of so long
standing might prciye detrimental to my gen.
'eral health-41feet which' I find a great 'many
eitertain ,in reined to removal of discharges
'from the ear. My eiperience, however, has
proved, conclusively, that my apprehenlias
ware entirely groundless in both respects, for
both airs - are as well, and my hearing as good
at present, as the day I left off treatment,
and the stoppage of the discharge, instead
of proving detrimental 'my bealth, has' given
me the_ highest elasticity and vigor of body
and a flow of spirits not experienced for a
long time previous. '
I wish the above statement might serve as
a 'general answer to those interested, but
should one or the other Irish to apply to me
personally or by letter, I will cheerfully sat
isfy all. reasonable demands upon my time.
I svitil myeelf of this opportnaity to again
publicly express my deeply felt gsatitnde to
Dr. Lightbill, - plunn I es►eem u i gentleman

confidence may be placed.
