treatment to render exigence desirable. If you
are suffering or have suffered from involuntary

your general health? DO you feel weak, debili

duce palpitation of the heart? ' Does your liver
or urinary organs, or your kidneys, frequently
get out of order? Is your urine sometimes thick,
milky, lioelry, or is it ropy on settling? Or does
a thick scum rise to the - top Or is n iiediment
at the bottom after It has stood awhile? Do you
have spell. of short breathing or dyspepsia?

Plain Talk for the Times!
Beal! amass. Bead!!!
A few months more and the. Presidential
campaign will open in all its Apr, with can
didates in the field representing the distinct
ive issues of each Political organization, and
committed plainly and unequivocally to their
Oa both sides active preparations are be
ing made for the struggle, and it will un
doubtedly be one of the most fiercely con
tested in the history of the nation.• Every
indication of the times points to the most
stubborn and unscrupulous resistance on the
part of the Radicals against the efforts of the
people to wrest froM them the lawless power
which they have seized to uphold their base
The Detriocratic party begins the campaign
under the most auspicious circumstances,
with a conddence In success, an enthusiasm
for the cause, and a vigorous 'self reliance
,- has not been experienced in many years.
The late elections show conclusively that a
vast majority of the nation are ready to es
pouse our standard if we only prove faithful
to our creed, and continue to stand firmly by
the interests of the country.
But to make victory certain something
more is necessary than mere dependence up
on the truth of oar principles. In the flush
of self-confidence, we are apt to forget what
a vigilant enemy we have to 'overcome, and
.what desperate measures he is apt to resort to
to attain his entla. battim, like those
of a more bloody nature, depend for their re
sults more on the skill,courage, determination
and energy of the contesting foes than upon the
sacredness of their cause, or the convictions of
the participate. The Democracy of America
have always stood forth as devotedly attached
to the Union, the Constitution, and the wel
fare of the country as they do to-day, yet
for seven years they have been divested of
power, and it is only when the people are,
aroused from their delusion by the imperilled
condition of the public interests, that they
have again returned to us that confidence
which it would have been well if they had
never parted with. •
The tillimpokant necessity of the day, on
the part of our political friends 14—work I
wont!! WORK! !'!
We must be thoroughly organized and pre
pared for the campaign. Eveery man must
consider that he owes a personal duly in the
matter, as indeed he does, for there is no one
so humble, but he is in some way more or less
concerned ill the Wines at stake. All the
districts must be canvassed, so that we may
know where it will be most advantageous to
employ our energies. The young men must
be encouraged to letuLa helping hand. Those
who have been led easy must be brought
back to the fold, and Democratic arguments
placed in their reach; that they may know
the distinctive questions which divide par
ties, and no longer be misled by the wiles and
falsehoods of the Opposition.
What we have said before we now reiter
ate, and intend ' reiterating, until we have
waked the Democracy ;up to a full conscious
ness of its truth, that the most effective
weapon towards success is the wide distraut
lion of sound and straightforward local news
papers. .
One good journal in a family Will do more
towards moulding its politwai convictions
than all other !affiances, and fifty copieicir
culated in any, locality for six months will
accomplish more efficient service than a doz
en costly mass meetings.
The Democratic party has never displayed
that zeal in supporting its press that it need
ed, and to that cause, as much as anything
else, may be attributed its misfortunes during
the last ten years. In all sections of the
country—even in the midst of -the strongest
Democratic localities—the Radical press is
more liberally sustained than ours, and in
many places the contrast is so great as al
most to amount to a disgrace:*
The time has come for these things to be
changed, and for the Democratic party to
enter upon a new method of warfare. Our
paper's ought to be spread broadcast ever the.
land, and take the place of those which are
now defiling the minds of the young and
filling them with wrong ideas of Republican
liberty. Our public Men should avail them
selves of every opportunity that offers to im
press the importance of. these views on the
attention of the masses. Our local leaders
should. make a point of devoting whatever
spare time they can towards strengthening
their county organs by procuring their friend.'
and neighbors' patronage.
The low price of TWO DOLLARS per
year at which the Observer is now offered,
if paid in adeanes, ought to ensure the doub

But to place it within the reach of an, we

six months' subscription commencing within

A Correct Account of the 'Mysterious
Female Nan.
(Prom the Broadhead (Wis.) Independent. Feb
ruary Ist.]
About the year 18 , - Al there moved to this
village a family by the name of Burnham,
consisting of Dr. M. L Burnham, his wife,
and two children, a daughter aged 16, and a
son three orfour years younger. Mr. Burn
ham was a man of some property and of the
highest respectability. The family soon be
came active members of our village society,
the Doctor being an active member and one
of the deacons of the Congregational Church.
Dr. Burnham was a well-read physician, and
did some practlie 1n addition to keeping a
drugstore, in which Ms daughter, Ellen, as-,
sisted him as a cletik for the first two years of
the Doctor's residence here. MIS Ellen
Burnham was by no means beautiful. Her
hair and eyes were dark ; features regular,
but rather coarse and masculine; form tall,
square-shouldered and wanting in that grace
of outline that inspires admiration. If a
stranger were tempted to look at her the sec
ond time ; it would be with surprise at the
strong, masculine appearance unnatural to a
woman, especially one so young. •
Miss Burnham was not a favorite with our
young men, nor did sbe.seem anxious to be.
Her time outside of her domestic duties, was
devoted to instrumental music and to horse
back-riding, in both of which she was decid
edly accomplished. Her, life for the four
subsequent to 1856 was not unllltethat
of other young ladies of the place. She had
a large class,mostly of young ,girls,whom she
instructed in instrumental music. In the fall
of 1858, a young man by the name of Powell
tame here and was employed as principal of
our village school. Powell resigned the lead
ership of the school in the spring of 1859, and
started the Reporter, the first paper published
in-our village. During that summer he be
came intimate with the family of Dr. Burn
ham, and became engaged to Miss Burnham
in the fall following. he engagement soon
became known outside of the family. The
only surprise excited on account of it was at
the taste of Mr. Powell in selecting a girl of
such masculine appearance. Miss Burn
ham'il parents seemed particularly pleased at
the prospective marriage of their daughter,
whom they believed well qualified to make a
good wife for an editor. In February, 1860,
L W. Powell and Miss Ellen Burnham were
married by Rev, Mr. Cochran, the Congrega
tional minister.
The happy couple took a short bridal tour,
preparatory to settling down for life. Alter
an absence of a week they returned to the
residence'of the - bride's parents, who, in bon
er of their daughter's marriage, skist out In
to large numbers of our citizens to
wekcome 'the bride and groom. We were
present at this wedding party, and could not
but think that both the bride and groom ap
peared remarkably solemn. We did not kiss
the bride, although that was the fashion.
Our objections to the, kissing part of the
programme were a dislike to come in con
tact with an unusually heavy and black
moustache which marred the upper lip of the
Mrs. Powell became more and • more mas
culine in her appearance as she gred older.
She took a case in the Reporter office, 'and
learned the printer's trade rapidly. And in
a short lime she proved to be the best jour in
the office. She also took to smoking,in the
cultivation of which habit she proved herself
to be a printer.
In the spring of 1861, when Powell had
been married about a year and a half, the 7th
Wisconsin regimen; was organized.. Pow
ell's wife not having presented him with an
heir to nuke home doubly pleasant he re
solved to go to the war. He sought, and
through the influence of ffiends, obtained the
appointment of State agent or "wet nurse"
for the 7th, then ordered to Washington.
Mrs. Powell, being of a tough and hardy
make, resolved to amompany her husband to
the &out No objection being raised, she fit
ted herself out and went to Washington.
The regiment was for a time detained at
Washington, and Mrs. Powell made herself
happy by working up that moral town. A
few weeks after her arrival, while she was
riding on horse-back one day, her masculine
appearance attracted the attention of a Gov
ernment detective, who made up his mind
that Sirs. Powell was a man and a rebel spy.
The detective followed her about the city
and to her quarters: He dogged her steps
for several days, until, just before the regi
ment was ordered off, Mrs. Powell took it in
to her head tb return to Broadhead. She
packed up her rig, took leaveof her husband
and the regiment, and started for home. The
detective accompanied her to Chicago on the
same train, and at the Briggs House, where
the lady booked her name, he placed her un
der arrest as a rebel in dis guise.. In vain she
claimed to be a woman and the wife of a
member of thelth • regiment. She celled in
the landlady, who asserted that she had seen
Mrs. Powell at the house before. Mrs. Pow
ell finally induced the detective to telegraph
to Gov. Randall, of this State, 'and to her
husband at Washington. : Governor Randall
telegraphed back that there was such a lady.
A similar telegram arrived from Washing
ton, and the detective released her and re
turned to Washington. In a few days, Mr.
Powell reached Chicago, and the unhappy
couple made their way home to this village.
Language cannot describe the feelings of
this unhappy pair. Hardly over the first
flush of connubial felicity, and the wile had
become an object of suspicion to strangers,
and was in constant danger of being arrested
as a man. They remained here a few days,
when Mrs. Powell informed her parents that
she was going to visit her relations east. The
fond parents, little dreaming of the. arrest
and subsequent Scenes at the Briggs House,
urged her to remain and replenish her ward
robe. She readily answered that ihe could
procure more becoming and stylish garments
at the east Atter her departure, Mr. Powell
procured some cloth, and went to Mr. Moon
ey; one of our tailors, and informed him that
he wished to present his brother with a suit
of clothes. He informed the tailor that his
garments fitted his brother, and a suit made
to .fit him would be just the thing. The
clothes were made and expressed to Chicago.
Soon after Mr. Powell informed Dr. Burn
ham, the father of his. wife, that, Ellen had
changed her dress,. and was now wearing"
man's attire, and living in Chicago. The
Doctor was thunderstruck, and the mother
half crazy. The only satisfaction they could
get out of Powell was, that his wife was not
a woman, and would not dress u a woman
any longer.. The Doctor requested Mr. Pow
ell to accompany him, and they immediately
went to Chicago, where he found his,daugh
ter dresired in a suit of clothes which Mr. P.
had had made for his brother. Mrs. Powell
intbrmed her father that she was not a wo
man, and'irould no longer U to act the part
of one. The Doctor insisted upon an exam
ination.: At length, to satisfy Mr M
, litunham,i
she consented that the late D. Brainard'
should examine her. Dr. Brainard did so,l
and informed the father that his daughter
was not a female, and had done the beat
thing to be done in clogging her attire. At
ter much sulk:Maim. Ellen permitted her
Meer to exandee her and slab* kinnelf
that she was not a woman. Dr. Bambara
then procured a situation for her under the
name of Edgar Burnham, in the 'wholesale
drug house oFJ. H. Reed & Co., in whose
employ he remained about one year. • During
this time he roomed and slept With a young
man by the name of Andrews, now iloing
business in Crosby's Opera House block. He
also became engaged to a young lady on
State 'Meet, the daughter of his landlady.
We frequently visited young Burnham at
his room on Washington street, being our•
selves at that time in the law office of Meech
& Redfield, then officing on Dearborn street
Young Burnham made up in appearance as
a man of all the beauty and grace he lacked
as a woman. Chicago had few better look
ing young Men than the former Mrs. PowelL
He was a portion of this time organist at the
_Plymouth church, Rev. J. R. Shepherd, pas
tor, and for a time organist of one of the Bap
tist churches. We were particularly amused
1 at his hearty admiration of the girls. He
would leave his piano or work any time to
look at a woman. In 1863 young Burnham
returned to Broadhead, and went into the
drug business with his father. He was at
this time engaged to the State street lady,
who was entirely ignorant of the story of her
lover's life. We have it from the best au
thority--a young man who resided in the
family of the young lady—that Burnham was
a devoted lover, and, even after he removed
to Broadhead, corresponded regularly twice
a week with his - betrothed, and paid her
visits of two or three days duration. After
hiS removal to Broadhead, he was a decided
favorite in the society here, both on account
of his good looks and his skill as a musician.
Men, women and children flocked to the
drug-store of Burnham & Son to trade, for
the cake of seeing thC young man who was
once a wife.
At length Dr. Mumham sold out his pro
perty here in 1864 and removed to Waterloo,
lowa, taking Edgar .with him, and there
opened a drug store. Soon after the remov
al 'of the family to Waterloo, Edgar sought
arid obtained in marriage the hand of Miss
Gerta Everette, one of the prettiest girls in
Spring Valley, Rork county, Wis. The Chi
cago engagement had been broken off.
They have now been married about three
years, and living at Waterloo. They have
no children as yet, all stories to the contrary
notwithstanding. Should they ever have
children, or either of them, we shall make
haste to inform our readers of the fact.
It is simply ridiculous to suppose that Ed•.
gar Burnham waa ever a mother, and quite
as insane to believe that he can be a father,
From the best of authority, namely, from
Mr. Powell, and from the summon who ex
amined him, we know that Edgar Burnham
is an It, and will never be anything else. It
is due to the young lady to whom he was en
gaged in Chicago to say that she never knew
the make-up of her lover from first to last,
and that the engagement was broken off by
her before his history became known.
Miss Everette, his present wife, knew the
facts of this remarkable case, substantially as
we have related them, and married It will
ingly of her own accord and against the wish
es of her parents. She undoubtedly knows
the facts more definitely now than we do,
and can comfort .herself accordingly. We
wish h^r joy of her union with an It, it there
is any joy in it.

From the VlLlmkorton (N. C.) Journal.]
Since the Honorable Mr. Bingham, of Ohio,
whois somewhat knotin by his anceessfid
efforts in the "taking off" of Mrs. Sorra%
has said that the negroes are as well qualified
to vote as those who have been brought up
at the tail of a wheelbarrow--meaning by this
allusion the Irish—it has become very popu

negro suffrage, even in the South. It can only
be believed by the ignorant and repeated by

The Land We Love, in its last issue, thus
refers to Mr. Bingham's comparison of the
Irish and Africanraces :

region in the style most popular even in the
sixteenth century, stealing, plundering, burn

endeared war to the heart of the conquering
nation by making war support itself, and by
furnishing dainty material for illustrated pic
torials of the suffering and humiliation of the
conquered people. He was therethrelisisted
and honored,' and was the Magnus Apollo,
the adored idol of the British populace. But
in this very hour of his triumph and his pop•
ularity, these two generous Irishmen had the
heart to sympathize with the wronged and
oppressed; still better, they had the courage
to denounce the demi , god and bring him to
trial. It was the Begum speech of Sheridan,
delivered on the occasion of the impeachment,
which Byron pronounced to be the master
effort of British oratory_
Will it be worth while to tell Radical stu

Gra. Grant at Galena.
Prom the 0 3**asalL.Deuxtntta
We are repeatedly called upon, to common
with others of our velloT alums, by letters
from different parts of th• • Union, for infor
mation in regard to the •odecedents, moral,
social and political. a Gen. U. S. Grant, or
Gen. Samuel Ulys:vt-i Grant, according to a .
lath newspaper writer, who says he derives
die information fr om Sam's own father, who,
if he knows anything, ought to know his own,
son's name. .
NO, 39
Having no personal feeling against U. 8.
Grant,or S. U. Grant,we haver-onsequently no
objections to an answer to these queries, and
to state fairly all that is known, or can be
brought, forward, in regard to the political
opinions of this gentleman. As to hts social
and moral 'miter, we have little to say at
present ; but, as to his politics, wo .have ex
cellent authority to whom we can refer for
proof—that is, it Gen.- Grant ever had any
fixed opinions while ho resided in Galena.
U. S. Grant, or 8. U. Grant, came to this
city about nine years ago. His father was a
resident Of Covington, Ky. bad a leather
store here, and 'Was engaged, through his
two sons, Orville and Simpson Grant, in the
purchase of hides, which were shipped to
Covington. Hither came' Ulysses, after he
wandered out of the United States army,
and was employed as a kind of a porter about
the establishment He was equally un
known to fame or society here, and so re
mained until his good luck came into play
with that of the Black Republican dynasty
of A. Lincoln.
It has been repeatedly stated that Grant
voted for Douglas at then Presidential elec
tion of 11360, which resulted in the triumph
'Black Old Abe and the eternal aluez!"
Afraid it has been said that both he and ids
brother voted for A: Lincoln. His brother
did. vote the Republican ticket, but Sam did
not cote at aIL He told one gentleman that
if be did vote, he would prefer to do so for
Bell and Everett, the Know Nothing candi
dates. , To another gentleman he expressed
his preference for Judge Douglas, adding
however, that he did not like to oppose the
wishes of tie father and brother, who were
Republicans; thus exhibiting the same vas
dilating course in politici that he does at
present. Know Nothingism appears at all
times to be his predominating political char
acteristics. . -
But few of our citizens knew 11. fi, or S.
11. Grant during his residence here; and it
was not until the title Of General was at
tached to his name that they began to in
quire:- "Who and what is this Gen. Grant
who is announced ass distinguished citizen
of - Galena?" "We never knew him'!" "What
is he—what did he do here?" Everybody
seemed astonished that we "had a Bourbon
among us," and had ignorantly been nursing
a military-genius in oar midst, who was des
tined (politically at least) . to overslaugh all
competitors. •
It is venerably understood that there is and
has been for -some time past, in &Ct. ever
since Gen. Grant loomed up in the political
horizon, quite a contest or rivalry as to the
particular individual who that lent Grant a
helping hand—both E. B. Washbarne and
Dick Yates claiming the merit of being his
It appears, that, on the breaking/out of the
