the afflicted a permanent and speedy cure in
Consumption. The first cause of tubercle.: is
from Impure blood, and the immediate facet pro
duced by their deposition in the lungs is to pre
vent the free admission of air into the air cells,
which causes a weakened vitality through the
entire system. Then surely it is more rational
to expect greater good from medicines entering
the cavities of the lungs than those administered
through the stomach ; the patient will always
find the lungs free and the breathing easy, after
Inhaling remedies. Thus, Inhalation is a local
remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally end

The inhalation of ammonia will rouse the sys

inhalation, is the tact that sickness is.always pro •

his everyday walk presented to the world
an example of the roost rigid piety. Tho',

Chronicle ; in u letter written at Nantucket

Many years ago, a husband and father
started from his home to commence his
morning work in a rope walk upon our is
land. Breakfast time came, and, as was
her wont, his faithful wife left her home
to convey her husband's breakfast to him.
The snow had been falling for some time,
but she heeded it not, and started to cross
some open low in the outskirts of our town
The wind blew violently, and the blinding
snow disturbed her so that she lost her
path, and when found, some time after,
she was leaning against a tail-fence, smo
thered, frozen, dead. The father died al
so I think, ere long, and their two orphan
children were taken to our alias-house.
Years passed, and the children grew to
womanhood, and in turn were wives and
mothers The husband of one of them
was drowned a few years ago near our is
land, leaving several young children. An
aged ratan who had befriended his wife in
early years, then took her to his home,
and there she toiled hard to support her
children. In n0t,,,, way the old man's
property was used, until he had nothing
I It but his hunib.e out. Then the widow
toiled to support !din, till he saw that she
woo wasting away under her arduous la
bor, and nobly, generously, sent for a law
yer, and gave her his cottage which he
hod toiled hard to obtain, and in which he
hoped to speed his days, and went himself
to dwell in our almshouse. He shares a
pauper's home today, but his gray hairs
are a crown of glory to him- The widow
would have preferred to struggle on for
her benefactor, but he knew that his life's
sands were almost run, and it mattered lit
tle where he should be in the hour of death. j
One day this winter r lady gave the chil
dren of this poor widow some food for their
Kurd-workins mother, and un apple each j
for themselves. NVlien she next saw them '
she asked how they liked the apples, and
the reply was—"We did nut oat them our
selves, but carried them to our grandfather
at the almshouse."
The teacher of our high school recently
related the above to a large audience at a
Sabbath school festival in uur town, while
tears flowed freely down the cheek of man
hood, at the pathetic account, of which few
had any knowledge. Every heart recog
nized the real nobility of the aged pauper,
and deemed such an act of self-sacrifice at
once generous and disinterested.

California Politica
Edward Stanley, ' formerly a Whig
member of Congress from North Caroli•
na, has been nominated for Governor by
the Republicans of California. He is a
gentleman of much ability and great pri
vate worth, and a few years ago was a
prominent politician iii his native State.—
John B. Weller, late U. S. Senator, has
been nominated for the same office by the
Democrats. The latest accounts state
that the contest will be a close one. Mr.
Stanley has already opened the campaign
in a speech delivered nt San Francisco,
before an immense audience. He fully
defined his position, and tools strong
ground in favor of the principles of the
Republican party.
