SATURDAY, MAY 11, 1861
A gentleman who saw ex-Presi
dent Buchanan, a few days ago, repre
sents that be is in a most feeble condi
tion, greatly depressed at the situation
of public affairs, and yet earnestly in
favor of the course of the present Ad
ministration. He gives it as his opinion
that no foreign Government will recog
nize the Southern Confederacy, and
declares, with great emphasis, that those
in the lead of that movement Should be
put down if it led to a seven years' war
and to the expenditure of huntlreds of
millions of dollars. He should have
thought of all this a year ago.
Cr James A. Hamilton, son of Alex
ander Hamilton, of revolutionary mem
ory, publishes a card in the New York
Evening Post, to the effect that he call
ed upon the President on Saturday last,
who assured him that he was resolved to
prosecute the war with the rebels with
all the vigor in his power, and on a scale
of such magnitude as should drive trea
son to cry for quarter. It cannot be
doubted that the Goverment at Wash
ington will obey the imperative demand
of the country for a permanent settle
ment of the controversy with the South.
ar Governor Hicks, in reply to the
'resolution of inquiry by the Legislature
asking whether he consented to or au
thorized the burning of the bridges on.
the Northern Central and Philadelphia
roads, says he neither authorized nor
consented to the destruction of the said
bridges, but left the whole matter in the
hands of the Mayor of Baltimore, with
the declaration that he had no authority
in the premises, and that he was a lover
of law and order, and could not partici-
pate in such proceedings.
The position of ex-Vice President
Breckinridge, now a Senator in the Con
gress of the United States, will be most
embarrasing, and the same may be said
of all who co-operate with him. If he
intends to visit Washington merely for
the purpose of embarrassing the Admin
istration, and of repeating the Disunion
sentiment of his friends in South Caroli
na, Georgia, and Alabama, or the utter
ances of Gov. 14Iagollin, of Kentucky,
would it not be better for him to resign

down when it is wet or very sunny.

6. Keep your entire person clean ;
this prevents fevers and bowel com

body each day if possible.' Avoid strong

said that the too free use of these, to

clean, cost many a soldier his life in

PATRIOTIC INCIDENT.-At the Boston
meeting to summon recruits for Fletcher

Stephen Decatur, sir." It proved to be
a check for $lOO. The father stood by

of the navy who lost his sight in the

Decatur of the last war. Nine cheers
were given which made the halls ring.

THE FIRST SECEDER.—The Devil was
the first secesSionist, ever known, and he
seceded from a better government than
the leaders of our cotton states did, but
from the same motives. " Rule or ruin,"
was the platform of both. Here, for the
most part, the people have been fifed and
drummed out of the Union, and denied
a voice upon the subject. The same
spirit, actuate secessionists wherever
they 'may be found. Had Bell or Doug

A DEAD PAPER.—The only paper ID
Washington City that has in any way
countenanced Secession, since the Con
stitution went out of existence, is now
defunct. It was called Tie States and
Union. It never had much force, and of
late months, its Secessionism had been
of a very mild type. Still it obtained
the poor support of the limited number
of Southern clerks, disloyal army and
navy officers and other conspirators
against the Government, and managed
to make a show of life. But it died last
Saturday evening from sheer inanition.
The Government never molested it or

external evidence of health—while sallownzss,

H OLLO WAY'S OINTMENT.
Bad Legs, Bad Breasts,Sores and Ulcers
All description of sores are remediable by the
proper and diligent use of this inestimable
preparation. To attempt to cure bad legs by
plastering the edges of the wound together is a
folly ; for should the skin unite, a boggy dis
eased condition remains underneath to break
out with tenfold fury in a few days. The only
rational and successful treatment, as indicated
by nature, is to reduce the inflammation in and
about the wound and to soothe the neighboring
parts by rubbing in plenty of the Ointment as
salt is forced into meat.
J)iptheria, Ulcerated Sore 7'hroat, and
Scarlet and other Fevers
Any of the above diseases may be cured by
well rubbing the Ointment three times a day
into the chest, throat and neck of the patient;
it will soon penetrate, and give immediate re
lief. Medicine taken by the mouth must oper
ate upon the whole system ere its influence can
be felt in any local part, whereas the Oint
ment will do its work at once. Whoever tries
the unguedin the above manner for the dis
eases named, or any similar disorders affecting
the chest and throat, will find themselves re
lieved as by a charm.
Piles, Fistulas, Strictures.
The above class of complaints will be removed
by nightly fomenting the parts with warm
water, and then by most effectually subbing in
the Ointment. Persons suffering from these
direful complaints should lose not a moment in
arresting their progress It should be Under
stood that it is not suffident merely to smear
the Ointment on the affected parts, but it must
be well rubbed in for some considerable time
two of three times a day, that it may be taken
into the system, whence it will remove any
hidden sore or wound as effectually as though
palpable to the eye. There again bread and
water poultices, after the rubbing in of the
Ointment, will do great service. This is the
only sure treatment for female cases of cancer
in the stomach, or where there may be a gen
eral bearing down.
Indiscretions of Youth; Sores and Ulcers.
Blotches, as also swellings, can, with cer
tainty, be radically cured ii the Ointment be
used freely, and the Pills be taken night and
morning as recommended in the printed in
structions. When treated in any othor way
they only dry up in one place to break out in
another; whereas this Ointment will remove
the humour from the system, and leave the pa
tient a vigorous and healthy being. It will
require time with the use of the Pills to ensure
a lasting cure.
Dropsical Swellings, Paralysis and Stiff
Although the above complaints differ widely
iu their origin and nature, yet they all require
local treatment. Many of the worst cases, of
such diseases, will yield in a comparatively
short space of time when this Ointment is dili
gently rubbed into the parts affected, even after
every other means have failed. In all serious
maladies the Pills should be taken according
to the printed directions accompanying each
Both the Ointment and Pills should be used
in the following cases :
Bad Legs, Chiego-foot, Fistulas,

Poor. 0. J. Woon : Dear Sir:—in the latter
part of the year 1852, while attending the State
and National Law School of the State of New
York, my hair, from a cause unknown to me,
commenced falling off very rapidly, so that in
the short space of six months the whole upper
part of my scalp was almost entirely bereft of
its covering, and much of the remaining por
tion upon the side and back part of my head
shortly after became gray, so that you will not
be : urprised when I tell you that upon my re
turn to the State of Indiana, my mere casual
acquaintances were not so much at a loss to
discover the cause of the change in my appear
ance, as my more intimate acquaintances were
to recognise me at all.
I at once made application to the most skill
ful physician in the country, but, receiving no
assurance from them that my hair could again
be restored, I was forced to become reconciled
to my fate, until, fortunately, in the latter part
of the year 1857, your Restorative was recom
mended to me by a druggist, as being the most
reliable Hair Restorative in use. I tried one
bottle, and found to my great satisfaction that
it was producing tht desired effect. Since that
time, I have used seven dollars' worth. of your
Restorative, and as a result, have a rich coat of
very soft black hair, which no money can buy.
As a mark of my gratitude for your labor
and skill in the production of so wonderful an
article, I have recommended its use to many of
my friends and acquaintances, who, I am hap
py to inform you, are using it with like effect.
Very respectfully yours, A. M. LATTA,
Attorney and Counsellor at Law.
THE RESTORATIVE is put up in bottles of
three sizes, viz : large, medium, and small ; the
small holds 1-a-pint, and retails for $1 a bottle,
