The Best New York:Weekly Published:
NEW" YORK DAY BOOK
.The New York Day-Book is a straightforward
Radical Denmeratle paper, with a darger circu
lation than any other Democratic Journal ever
published on this continent, and it enters on
the threshold of INN more prosperous and more
hopeful of the great cause It upholds than ever
before: Standing on the Declaration of Inde
pendence, that "all (white) men are equal," and
therefore entitled to equal rigid., it Is opposed
to all forms and degrees of special legislation
that conflict with this grand central truth of
Democracy, and over all and above all, does it
combat that monstrous treason to American
liberty, which, thrusting the negro element In
to our political system, must of necessity wreck
the whole mighty fabric left us by our fathers.
Gist has created white men superior and ne
groes inferior, and therefore all the efforts of
the past six years to abolish Ills work and
equalize with negroes—every law violated, eve
ry State :Constitution overthrown, every life
sacritleed, and every - dollar expended, are ne
cessarily Just so many steps towards national
suicide: and the simple and awful pro. tern now
upon us is Just this—shall we recover our rea
son and retrace our steps, or march on to Mon
grelism, social anarchy, and the total ruin of
The Day Rook, therefore, demands the resto
ration of the "Uhlon as it was'—a Union of co
equal States upon the white basis, as the only
hope, and the only means postble under heaven
for saving the grand Wens of 1776, and the fund
amental priciples of American liberty, and It
the real freemen, and the earnest believers in
that snored and glorious cause in which the
then of the Revolution offered up their lives,
wit I now labor to expose t he Ignorance,delusiOn
and treason of the Mongrel -party, it will mac
reed, and - the white Republic of Ww‘hington
be restored again In all its original Influence
The Day Book wilt, howeVer, hereafter be
more than ever devoted to all the varied purpo
ses of a news paper. Conscious that it reach
es thousands of families who take no other
Journal, beyond perhaps their local paper, it
will continue and improve its "News of the
Week" Summary, so as to present a transcript
of the World's events in each issue. Its "Fam
ily' Department" will embrace the best original
and selected•storie&,. Its "Agricultural Depart
ment" will he fully sustained, and being the
only paper of its class made up expressly for
country clrculat ion, it is confident it is worth
double the price of a weekly hurriedly reprint
ed from a daily. It 'gives full and complete re
ports of the New York and Albany Cattle Mar
kets; Grain, Provisions and Cotton Markets ,
and a' Weekly review of Financial matters, to:

treatment to render existence desirable. If you
are suffering or have suffered from involuntary
discharges, what efrecrdoes it produce upon
YOUr general health? Do you feel weak, debili
tated, easily tired? Does a little exertion pro
duce palpitation of thebnirt Does your liver
or urinary organs, or your kidneys, frequently
get out of order! Is your urine sometimes thick,
milky, flocky, or is it ropy on settling? Or does
a thick SCUM rise to the top? Or is a sediment
at the bottom after it hoe stood awhile? Do you
have spells of short breathing or dyspepsia?
Are your bowels: constipated? Do you have
spells of fainting or rushes of blood to ttie head?
Is your memory impaired? Is your Mind con
stantly dwelling upon thti subject! Do you feel
dull, listless, moping, tired of company, of life?
Do you Wish to be left alone, to get away from
everybody! Does any little thing raako you
start or jump! Is your sleep broken or restless!
Is the lustre of your eye as brilliant? The bloom
on your cheek as bright? Do you enjoy yourself
In society as well? Do you pursue your business
with the same energy! Do you feel as much
confidence in yourself? Are your spirits dull
and flagging, given to fits of melancholy? If so,
do not fay it to your liver or dyspepsia. Have
you restless nights? Your back weak, your
knees weak, and have but little appetite, and
you attribute this to dyspepsia or liver com
Now, reader,sell-abuse, venereal diseases bad
ly cured, and sexual excesses, are all capable Of
producing a 'less of the generative organs.
of generation, when in perfect health, make the
man. Ina you ever think that those bold, defi
ant, energetic, persevering, successful business
men are always those whose generative organs
are in perfect health? You never hear such
men complain of being melancholy, of nervous
ness, of palpitation Of the heart. They are nev
er afraid they cannot succeed In business.; they
don't become sad and discouraged; they are al
ways polite nrld pleasant in the company of la
dies, and look you and them right In the face—
none of your downcast looks orally other mean
ness about them. I do not mean those who keep
the organs inflamed by running to excess. These
will not only ruin their constitutions, but also
those they do buslnes with or for.
How many men from badly cured' diseases,
from the effects of self-abuse and exces.ses, have
brought about that state of weakness in those
organs that has reduced the general system so
much as to induce almost every other disease--
idiocy, tummy: paralysis. spinal affections, aul
cid°, and almost , every other form of disease
which humanity is heir to, and the real cause of
the trouble scarcely ever suspected, and have
doctored for all bdrthe right one.
Diseases of these organs require the use of a
diuretic. HELMBOLDS3 FLUID EXTRACT

THE BACHELOR'S ESCAPE.
If . there ever was a fore-ordained bachelor,
that man was Major Teller. Some men are
born to old bachelorhood—others' have old
bachelorhood thrust upon them ; and to the
former class belonged the Major... You could
have picked him out in a multitude ; if be
had been labelled, like an antedeltivian fossil
or a dried specimen of entomology, there
could not have been more certainty in the
He was a dapper, thin-little man,.something
under five feet high, with a glossy black
closely trimmed side whiskers.and costume so
daintily neat that he reminded you of a shin
ing black cat! Ile took a Turkish bath in the
morning, and a Russian bath in•the evening;
he came home to dinner at twelve precisely,
and went to bed at eleven at night, his hoots
standing at the foot of his bed, and his stock
ings at the head, and his wig elevated on the
gas fixture, and every chair in the room stand
ing at right angles with the wall !
. It was high noon on a sparkling, windy,
March day when Major Teller came home to
the antique, down town boarding house,
where he had vegetated for the last twenty
years, and -went - to his own room to brush
his wig for the mid-day meal. Opening the
door he stumbled 'over' an obAacle that was
in the way.
"Oh, I beg_ your pardon, I'm sure," said
the Major, turning very Ved, recovering his
footing with difficulty.
It .was Miss Patience Pettigrew, on her
hands and knees, cleaning off the oil cloth at
Now the Major was afraid of Miss Patience
—afraid of her as the plump lamb fears the
gaunt wolf, or the unoffendmg robin the dire
serpent. Miss Patience was tall; lean and
sallow, but she curled her hair, and wore an
artificial rose over her left ear, and sang with
whistling tones to a little spindle-legged pi
ano, and firmly believed that if she only
waited a little while longer she , should get
married to somebody! And because the
Major sat opposite her at the table—Miss
Patience helped her widowed sister ''keep
house," and served out the gravy and sauces
—and regarded her artificial rose and bear's
grease curl With a sort of 'fearful fascination,
Miss Patience somehow opined that she
should one day, Cupid willing, becomh Mrs.
"It's of no consequence, Major," said Miss
Patience, recovering her piece of soap which
had skirMished out to the middle of the car
pet. "I hope your fire isn't out."
"Thank von, ma'am it is very good."
"I do wonder, Major," said Miss Patience,
with a premonitory giggle, "why you never
got married ?"
The Major retired precipitately behind the
coal scuttle, and made no reply.
"You'd be so-much more comfortable, you
know," added Miss Patience, wringing out
her woolen cloth and looking so lovingly oh
the Major that he retreated still further into
his wardrobe, where among the swinging ef
figies of coats and trowsers he felt compara
tively safe. • ,
'Miss Patience hesitated a- moment, and in
that moment the Major felt all the anticipa
tory agonies of being pursued, captured,
brought forth, and possibly married before he
could get breath to 'remonstrate! But she
finally took up her pail and vanished.
"Dear me, , that was a narrow escape,"
thought our hero,emergin'g from his sanctua
ry. ..Boine day she'll be too much for me.
Perhaps I'd better change my boarding place.
Yes—that will be the only safety. I suppose
I couldn't very well have her sworn over to,
keep_ the peace, and, really, there's no say
ing what a determined woman of fifty may
not do. I'll look out for a new place tci-mor
"Dear me, Major, you have no appotite,r
said Miss Patience sweetly, at the dinner ta•
"No, ma'am," said the Major.
"Try to vat a little—just to please me, Ma•
- NO, I thank you, mapm."
"Don't you know, Major, that people will
say. that you are in love, it' you don't eat
more ?" smiled the antiquated spinster.
This was .more than our hero could en
dure ; he rose up and left Miss Pettigrew vic
tor of the wordy field.
"I won't go back to that house if I can help
it," thought the Major, brushing the cold dew
&tire his forehead with a crimson silk pocket
handkerchief. "Her intentions are serious, I
know they are."
And the Major, in his innermost soul re
viewed the catechism and hymns he had
learned as a child ; trying to think it' there
were not some invocations particularly suit
ed to ari elderly gentleman in great peril and
perplexity. But he could not remember any
thing appropriate to his particulat case:
"It's twenty, wears since I have been in
side of' a church," thought the penitent old
sinner. "I wish I had gone a little more
regularly, I Wonder if it is too late in life to
For the 'Major, poor, old gentleman; had a
vague idea that "religion" would be a sort of
safeguard against the' wiles of -his fair enemy.
Deliverance from. Miss Pettigrew must be ob
tained onome terms or other. -
As Major Teller was frantically revolving
these things in his mind, he came to n slid
' den and involuntary stand-still. There was
a crowd gathered in the street—a fallen om
nibus horse, or an arrested pickpocket, or
some other nucleus, round Which gathers the
rapidly. increasing swarm of metropolitan
loafers. Now, of all things Major Teller
most dreaded was a • crowd, and he,looked
round nervously for some means of escape.
An' old-fashioned church, with opened
doors and some sort of service going on in
side; caught the Major's eye? He made an
instantaneous dart for its huge, gothic por
tals, shielded .by the inner doors of green
"It's a good - chance to think up something
solemn and appropriate, and that sort of
thing, until' the crowd gets by," he thought,•
settling himself in the corner of one of the
softly cushioned pews to listen to the mild,
droning voice of the old clergyman. .
The church was very warm, and the light
softened by purple and golden crimson glass,
was dim, and the clergyman's voice rather
monotonous, and Major. Teller was uncon
sciously becoming rather drowsy, when a
plump old lady came in, and the sexton
beckoned him from his seat.
But the sermon was over, and the people
streaming down the aisle, and the Major, felt
that he didn't care to pmlong the. thing and '
that he had done a very laudable act in corn
big to church, and—
Even while these ideas were passing hi- i
distinctly through his brain, he was .borne
towards the altar in an upward eddy of the
crowd, and felt a gaunt arm thrust through

The Major strove to withdraw his arm, but
Miss Pettigrew would not let him. They

both hands in his empty pockets, and his hat
tipped restlessly clown over his eves. A

The beautiful poem entitled the "Fallen
Snow," a production of extraordinary merit,
has been copied far and wide by the press of
this country. The author's name does not
appear, no doubt to the disappointment of
many readers who admire the true and beau
tiful in sentiment and composition. Know
ing her history, a correspondent of the Ma
con (Ga) Sentinel, gives a brief biography.
The maiden name of the authoress was
Dora Shaw. She was boin and grew into
womanhood in the Wabash Valley, Indiana.
Her parents' were plain, honorable people,
though not rich, as the world goes, They
loved their beautiful Dora, and bestowed on
her an- education which very few females
ever - receive. That accomplished, to wed
her to'adfne wealthy and distinguished gen
tleman, as is too often the case, they had the
fatal delusion that the daughter's will should
- be sacrificed upon the altar of Mammon—
that wealth and ambition should be preferred
In 18.50, F. S. Leßaum and Dora Shaw
were - married. Leßaum was a citizen and
the possessor of an immense property in St.
Louis. ", Being in the Wabash Valley upon
business of his house. •he saw, loved and
wooed this voung,beantiful and accomplished
woman. He then obtained her parents con
sent, and marriage, which followed, was hal
lowed by no love,. save upon the side of the
husband. Taking his bride home to his
palace in the city, she was there given every
thing that wealth could bestow. Still she was
not happy. Did you ever' see a contented
.eagle in a gilded - cage? •
The wife was at once introduced. to and
became the admiration of the best people of
the city. To the outward-world she appeared
the happiest of - mortals, illustrating how few
there are who really know the secret sorrows
of tlie human heart Shermssed her hours in
At the time, the famous theatrical mans
ger; Ben. Deßar, had a fine company at the
St. Louis Theatre. His leading star was Miss
Annette Ince—no less renowned for her act
ing mimic life than her beauty and many
womanly virtues. To this theatre Mr. and
Mrs. Letaum went one night and witnessed
a play. - Dora had never been inside a thea
tre before, and' before the curtain fell upon
the second act, she had made a resolution
which would change the whole course of her
life—she had determined to be an actress like
An interview with the Manager was easily
obtained, who saw in the aspirations of the
lads' a chance to make a splendid flit and put
gold in his purse. He gave her encourage
ment, dismissed the idea of her first assuming
a second part, but assured her she should
make her debut in the leading character of
the play she had witnessed—" Julia," in the
'Hunchback." More than encouraged, in
deed completely resolved, Dora at oncecom
-menced the study of. tote play, and, possess
ing a quick intelligenet, was at least master
of the language in a few days. Private re
hearsals appeared to give perfect satisfaction
to the manager as well as to the company
trained for that particular purpose and for
that occasion. All, this was kept front the
One morning the city was thrown into. a
fever by the announcement in all the join
! nals and upon the bulletin ,boards that "Miss
Dora Shaw would appear that night as Julia
in Sheridan Knowles great play • entitled
'The litinelmack.'" Leßatim and his friends
were struck as if by a thunderbolt from
Heaven.. He first entreated, appealed and
threatened his wife, and next the manager,
and finally declared his intention to murder
her upon the moment she made her appear

into the streets, which, of course, increased
the sensation anti strengthened the desire to
Every ticket was sold by nine o'clock, arid
it were needless to say that when night came

thoughts of the city. ti
The curtain rose—Dora appeared—walked,
stammered, blushed and repeated her part
mechanically,—like any girl reading her com
position at an examination. Still the audi
ence was pleased—not by the acting, but by
the novelty of the occasion. The next, the
third, the 'fourth and fifth nights were like
the-first. The morbid appetite of the nubile,
satiated with novelty, demanded good acting.
This Dora could not supply. The audience
fell off, the manager became -restless and re
fiised to offer a re-engagement, but intimated
that she had best go to another city.
In the meantime Leßanm sued for a di
vorce, which was readily granted by the
Court. The next appearance of Dora was in
New Orleans, where her. former social posi
tion was unknown, anti where she was
thrown upon her merits as an actress for suc
cess. It were needless to say that she failed
to elicit one Tingle plaudit.
