Uoroner Woodward was sent for, and held an inquest this morning, but there being no evi> cVeoce as to who put the infant there, or how it came to its death, tbe jury rendered a ver dict la accordance with the facts, bot expressed a belief that foul msans were Mod. (For the Evening St*r Mr.Epit?k: Allow me to explain the article of your city r*porter on the pardon or CMllns Dixon. That report emanated from the Mar shal's office, and altHnqfth true u tar a? tt there la something omitted. The aecond section of the act of (Jongiras appointing a Warden over the lalls, Ac.,' provides "That the Mid Warden shall have the exclusive anpervUion and control of the jail* in raid District, aqd be accountable for the safe-keeping of the pria oners committed thereto, and shall have all tne pvwtr, and discharge all the duties heretofore legally exercised and discharged over said j\lls and the nrisoneit therein by the Marshal of the said District." Deputy Marshal Phillips peemed tn disregard the above transferor power, by retusing to .give the pardon Into the bands of the Warden, as claimed to be his right by me, he adhering to< former practice in such cases. I then "tated to him that the matter must b? left for the War. decision. When the Warden learned the ficto he did not leel It safe to release as directed by the Marshal, and took the matter to court; and they, having the pardon in their ;wii*mo?, determined to release the prisoner and giveWirv his pardon as his right, Instead ol leaving it In the hands of the Marshal as heretofore. I informed Mr. Dixon of tbe existence of his par don and Irregularity in the premises; he appre ciated my action under the circumstances, and expressed himself perfectly satisfied: and there is no trouble any wnere, so far as I know, "xe^nt in the mind of the Marshal. I am Jailor, but represented the Wa-^en and Government in the premises, as recently shown by the opinion of the Attorney General in the cases of Hen d;i'ks and Pollard; for, If the'Marshal had "no power over the prisoners In jail" in the period between the passage of this act and tne confirmation or the Warden's appointment I am at a loss to find it now. I acted in t^e case as all other officers similarly situated would have acted, and there was no need of bringing my name before the public in the mitter. Respectfully, B MlLBCRN. May 7, 1964.

LtlQHTHILtli, from 34 St. Mark Place, Ifrw York, Author or "A Popular Treatise on Deafaew,' ?* Letter* on Catarrh," Will make his third visit to * WASHINGTON, On MONDAY, May 9th, and can be consulted at the Ebbitt Hocsb for o?? win until Saturday evening, May 14th, on DEAFNESS, CATARRH, and all the various diseases'of the EAR, THROAT, AND AIR PASSAGES. From the Rev. Fred. S. Jewell, Professor ef State Normal Scheel, Albany, N. Y. This may certify that I have been, since 1844, subject to violent periodical attacks of catarrh, marked by a highly inflamed condition of the lining membranes of the cavities of the head, producing a most distressing species of head* ache tor days at a time, wholly incapacitating me from business, and during thf paroxysms confining me to the bed. In some Instances the inflammation has extended to the teeth, occa sioning toothache ; to the threat, prodncing boars?ness and partial loss of voice; and and twice it bas so affected the left eye as to con* fine me for a month or more to a darkened room. These attacks have been accompanied by strong febrile symptoms; by stoppage of the head, and, in the first stages, by watery discharges from the nose, subsequently becoming acrid and yellow, and towards the close of the attack becoming bloody and purulent. I have tried medicines of almost every kind; external ap plications to the head, such as camphor, gin ger, hot bandages, and fomentations of hot vinegar; snuffs of some half a dozen kinds, and othei catarrhal preparations, together with in ternal remedies, such as alteratives, cathartics and emetics. These have produced no change in the occurrence or character of the disease, and, in most cases, with little or no temporary relief. I had come, at length, to believe the disease to be practically beyond either cure or material alleviation. ? Under these circumstances I was led some five months ago. to make a trial of Dr. Eight hill's trratmeut. His method at once approved it*elf to my judgment, as simple, philosophi cal, and likely to be effective. Notwithstand ing the disadvantages under which he labored, in dealing with a disease of such long stand ing, aggravated by nervous debility Rnd dys pepsia, and constantly induced by the acci dents of my professional labor, I founa the treatment reaching the disease as it had never been reached before, and producing such a modification and alleviation of its character, as 1 had supposed imuossiDie. I chronicle the results thus. Although 1 have been situated several times, so that I should formerly have believed a severe attack of my catarrh inevita ble, I have escaped thus far; the symptoms of threatened attack have been very light, and have yielded to the remedies employed by Dr. I iphthill, withoui ueed of recourse to the old hot fermentations, or emetics; and the dischar ges lrom the head have resumed the original unC1 natural condition. I count upon a com plete cure. That I have been able, however, to oiitain so materiil a relief is to me a cause ot gratitude. In that alone, 1 am repaid for whatever the treatment may have cost me. I make this statement unsolicited, as a means ot acknowledging my obligations to Dr.Ltght feils's method of treating catarrh, and with a view to aid any who may have suffered from that diffuse, in forming a just opinion ot its merits, and its probable utility in their own case. Frbdk. S. Jewell, Prof State Normal School. Albany, N. Y., March 14, 1&&4. Catarrh Cured. From Rev. R. P. Rutttll, Lynn, Mats. I have been much troubled with Catarrh of the worst tvpe for some twenty years. It gradually giew worse, producing cough and hoarseness, destroying the sense of smell, and hnaking down my general health to such a degree as to compel me to resign my pastorate, and i-uspend public speaking. 1 made diligent n6e of the useful remedies, such as snuffs of different kinds, nitrate of silver, tar water, olive tar, and inhalations, but without any salutary eff-cts. Last sum mer I beard of Dr. EighthlUs successful mode of treating catarrh, visited him, and put my self under his treatment I began immediate ly to improve, and thi* improvement has gone on to the present time. My catarrh has gradu ally melted away, my cough has disappeared, my voice has become natural, and 1 am once more able to preach the blessed Gospel. L.*t me advise all troubled with catarrhal difficul ties to apply to Dr. Etgbthill. P. R. RrnSHLL, Lynn, Mass., Feb. 1, 1BG2. my 5-eoOw BALLS, PARTIES, &c. Tj.o.o.f. lbvbk.
