effect of the passage of the National
Banking and . Currency Bill will 'doubt
less be to lessen greatly, if not to inhib

We believe that, even before the enact

Philadelphia banks put out its. own
notes; and at this writing at least two

ern Liberties—redeem their notes in
gold. If the new National law referred
to should have the effect of driving
of circulation every other hank Doti) ex
cept the notes issued under its authori

equal to any in the worNI, and indescri
bably superior to any we ever had or
ever dreamed of in the United Statos4
These Goiernment notes will be only
seven in number ; the plates will be dis
tinctly different from'any now in circu

highest style of the art, and printed on
paper manufactured expressly for them
—every man, woman, and almost child
in the community will became so inti

their being successfully counterfeited an

this radical and most important revolu

York Herald says, v hear the most
gratifying reports of the improved phy
sisal •ondition, discipline, efficiency,
and . fighting spirit of the Army of the
Potomac. General Hooker, by hii per
sonal attendance' to the wants of his
men, and by fresh bread and vegitatges
with which he is supplying them, is re
ducing his sick list and increasing his
effectives, while by his example of cheer
fulnesi and confidence he is diffusing the
same spirit in his behalf, throughout his
army.' All accounts assure us that the
Army of the Potomac only asks for a
dry, windy day or two in (Tier to move
forward to a terrible reckoning with the
enemy. And we can add, that Gen. Hoo
ker, in speaking of his troops to some
gentlemen who visited him last week,
remarked,- with conscious pride, "The
Army of the Potarnac is the finest on
this planet. They are not merely men
at arms, but knights. No material, es•
capt of the highest character, could en
dure, without grumbling, the dreadful
privations which they have undergone;
but this army has not grumbled, and it
is capable of victory as soon as it can
ifir In Honduras, invalids afflicted
with Scrofula visit the streams that
have drained from the wild lands where
Sarsaparilla grows. It is found that
the waters become impregnated with
the medical virtue of this drug, and the

it for weeks. Whatever are its effects,
these "watering places" 'have a reputa

at them from the eruptions, ulcerations,
and sores, which are so afflicting always
toli half civilized people.
The New Bedford Mercury says
that among the first who enrolled them

An amusing incident transpired
a few evenings since, at Manchester,

Portland Press) has grown to - be an ex
tensive business. The meats are cut
up, partially dried and packed in boxes
from three to four feet square; dry salt
ed sufficiently to preserve them on their
passage. They are brought by railroad
from Ohio, Illinois, &c., and shipped
principally by the Canadian line of
steamers from Portland. During the
month of January last, these steamers
took 12,950 packages of meat, contain

investigation, no proof could be adduced
against him, and he was released with
the understanding that he shall report

Philadelphia, died last Wednesday
from the effects of hydrophobia. It
seemed that about four weeks ago a
small dog ran into the house and was
taken up stairs. While the young man
was playing with the canine, he was bit

to the matter at the time, and in fact,
the circumstance was almost forgotten,
until about midnight, on Tuesday, when
the young man was attacked by hydro
phobia in its worst form. Medical aid
was at once summoned, but all efforts to
aid the sufferer were without avail, and
he lingered in the most excruciating ag

ECCENTRIC.—Joseph Pierce, a worthy
citizen of Cincinnati, died a few days
ago. Twelve years ago he had his coffin
made. By his order, it was made in
plain form of solid mahogany, with a
fiat lid and with plate, handles, ,
sunk in the top and sides. He wold
not allow a single screw to be used in
it, except in fastening on the bottom,
the different parts, with that one ex
ception, being all dovetailed together;
nor would he allow the ltd to be made
to fasten down, it being made so as to
merely rest on the top of the ends and
sides. Together with this, a stone sar
cophagus was hewn some time since, of
snch.size and shape that the former
should fit in it. Capt. Pierce long since
expressed his desire that the Star
