It is a melancholy fact tliat Hemorrhage or Bleed ing from the Lungs, is becoming more prevalent eve ry year. Scarcely a day passes in which I do not have more or less parsons applying to me for relief, who have experienced this trouble. It occurs in a large proportion of cases of consumption, at some period ot the disease. We may regard it as a rule, that at some period of the disease Hemorrhage from the lungs occurs in about four cases out of live. The causo of spitting of blood is not generally well understood. There is some obstruc tion in the lungs chicli pre vents the passage of the blood through them. Gen erally this obstiucfiou becomes greater, and conges tion fakes place. By congestion we mean that tlic veins become swollen almost to bursting; after a lime these vessels relax so as to allow the blood to from them into the air tubes and ceHs—precisely as fluids do through n filter or strainer, aud it is coughed up. The obstruction alluded to, generally arises from tu bercles. When a person spits blood, it a common be lief that it comes from the breaking of a Mood vessel in the lung8; but such is not the case. It runs from the mucous membrane lining the air tubes iuid cells, Just as it often does from the nose, without toe rup-. ture of any vessels. It cannot be too widely known that spitting or raising blood is a thing of fearful interest, as point ing out the silent, treacherous progress of a deadly disease within the lungs. The loss of blood is an indication ot tubercles, and from these tubercles will arise, sooner or later, all those changes and symptoms which constitute c<»n sumptioa. In almost ofery case where blood is coughed up, however small the quantity, that blood comes from the lungs, aud speaks a terrible warning. In thirteen bundled and twenty-seven cases of hemorrhage from the lungs, which have been prescribed lor, or treated by Dr. Morse during Ills nine years’ resilience in Port land, nearly every case of which have been cured, and but a very few ever spit or raised, any blood after using his Inhalations, in which, he wishes it to bo understood that he uses no fedine, ht>r no mineral nor nothing deleterious whatever. Xlioinhalations are of the natural temperature of the- atmosphere we breathe, aud are always ready for use, (without any heating or steam,) perfectly harm lass and very pleas ant. I would here slate that the numerous patient® I have from abroad, as well as about home, calling on me for consultation and help, together with the ordeis coming from all sections of the country,4 fi>r my Rem edies, give mo all the business that I can possibly, at tend to ' at home, where I am always happy to rrect those who axfr suffering from pulmonary affections, and wish to avail themselves of the benefits of safe and proper remedies for the removals ol their trou bles. For my success In effecting cures, I have thc^rlvl lagc of referring to wealthy Bankers, Brokers and Merchants in Boston, fts well as hundreds of iamilies in this city and many oilier sections of the country. Persons living at a distance, who cunnqfc visit me, can be treated by sending me a written statement of the symptoms of their case, aud the remedies with inhaler and instructions for use can beseuttbem by expross.

Tom dor, Nov. 21.—Lord Stanley, in reply to the letter in regard to the ships seized by the United States Government, points out that no arrangement can be made to consider such claims. A grand reform banquet took place at Man chester last night. Mr. Bright made a pjwer ful speech. The Times says although the Federal Secre tary of the Treasury believes that the Bonds of the United States will be paid in gold, it would be better if Congress would secure such pay ment by law. Advices from Crete state that the Cretan As Bembly deny the report that they have submit ted to the Turks. Pesth, Nor. 21.—The Hungarian Diet met to day. The Imperial rescript was received and read.

Negro Suffrage Inevitable.—The South will make a fatal mistake if it shares the evi dent assumption of the Macon Journal, that the blacks in those States are never to he ad mitted to a share of political power; that they will never he allowed to vote, but must always he a subject race. This, now that they are free, is simply impossible. It is the licrpetua tion of the errors which lay at the bottom of slavery. Sooner or later negroes will vote— will-have a voice in their own government will share in that right of making their own laws and choosing their own rulers which, ac cording to our republican principles, belongs inherently and inalienably, to all who arc re quired to obey the law. It depends wholly on ! the race now in possession of power whether they shall come into the enjoyment of this right peacefully, and aa the result of a friendly understanding with the whites, or through commotion, turmoil, insurrection, and blood shed—ruinous alike to both races, and to the country which both inhabit.

In this ratio the pickle is to be increased to any quantity desired. Lot these be boiled together until all the dirt from the sugar rises to the top anil is skimmed off. Then throw it into a tub to cool, and when cold, pour it over your heel or pork, to remain the usual time, say'four or five weeks. The meat must be well cover ed with pickle, and should not be put down till at least two days after killing, during which time it should be slightly sprinkled with powdered saltpeter, which removes all the surface blood, etc., leaving the meat fresh and clean. Some omit boiling the pickle, and find it to answer well, though the operation of boiling purifies the pickle by throwing off 1 the dirt always to be found in salt and sugar. If this recipe is properly tried, it will never be abandoned. There is none that surpasses it, if any so good. —Scientific American. Business Notices. Passing away! passing away!

The New Custom House and Post Office. -‘-The plans for the new custom house and post office have been forwarded to this city by the architect, Mr. A. B. Mullet, for inspection by the officers here. With some alterations in the details, they have been found very satisfactory, and will be returned to the Treasury Depart ment for official approval. The custom house will cover the entire square included by Com mercial, Pearl, Fore and Custom House streets. It will be built of granite, with handsome fa cades on Commercial and Fore streets, and a small tower on Commercial street. The cen tral portion of the basement will be used as a warehouse, over which will be a spacious hall 60 by 54 feet, for the transaction of general busi ness. The Collector’s, Surveyor’s, and other offices of the custom house will be accessible from Commercial street. Offices for the Asses sor and Collector of internal revenue will be provided on Fore street. The new post office is to be of white marble, finished with Corinthian pilasters. The plan provides for a portico in front. The internal arrangements will he very much as they are in the building now in use, except that the vesti bule will bo somewhat enlarged. The court room in the second story is planned to occupy the front on Middle street. It is understood that the marble can be procured at a quarry in Connecticut at a very reasonable expense. CITY AFFAIR*. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen held a special meeting in their new room in Market Hall last evening. It is a much more comfort able and convenient room than the one they have recently been occupying. Otis Purrinton was nominated by the May or, and confirmed by the Aldormen, a polioe man, in place of Lafayette Wyman, resigned. Tlie Committee on Drains and Sewers were directed to build two sewers, of plank, across Canal street—one at the foot of Emery street, the other near the drying house. A vote was also passed, instructing the Com mittee to construct a sewer in High street, from Deering to Cumberland street. Ggv. Bullock’s Lectube.—As will be seen by reference to our advertising columns, Gov. Bullock, of Massachusetts, is to lecture before the Y. M. C. A. in State Street Church on Monday evening. If the name of the lecturer is not a sufficient guarantee that his interesting topio will be ably handled, the enthusiasm with which the lecture has been received wherever delivered is an assurance against disappoint ment. We are confident that the man who has just been re elected Governor of our sister State by seventy thousand majority, will have an audience worthy of himself and his subject. We, therefore, advise such of our readers as have not season tickets to purchase their tick ets for Monday evening without delay. Railway Tbaffic.—The following are the receipts of the Grand Trunk Railway for tho week ending Nov. 17th, 1866: Passengers,.#54,296 00 Express Freight, Mails and Sundries,. 5,100 0* Freight and Live Stock,. 83,672 00 Total,.$143,068 00 Corresponding week last year. 140,439 00 Increase,. $2,029 00 JOSEPH HICKSON, Secretary and Treasurer A large assortment oi articles for ladies’ and children’s wear arrived yesterday at Da vis & Co.’s, consisting ol ball trimmings, kid gloves, children’s hoods, and a large lot of clouds and breakfast shawls.

Rooms to let with board at 38 Centre street, jnst opposite the Preble House Hoofing.—We would call special uttcutiou of parties interested iu rooting materials to tlie advertisement of H. W. Johns’ roofing, Wm H. Walker, agent, 241 Commercial street. We had occasion to examine it somewhat at length Having used it for a building, and think it is an article that we have much needed heretofore, and superior to anything of the kind yet brought to our notice. It is elastic and may be used for any purpose that tin or copper may be used.— Gutters may be easily formed with it. The foundation is good and wo cannot see why it may not last as long as it is kept painted — When finished it is fire proofs no trivial con sideration for us at present. It does not affect the water,'for any purpose that may be desired. Thp price is only about the same as good shin gles, bringing it within the reach of does not obstruct the gutters as other kinds of roofing used, &c., &c. We understand the proprietor is having good success in introducing it in our midst, having all the work be can attend to in apply ing it at present. He also repairs all kinds of roofs, employing the besf and most experienced workmen for putting it on, repairing, &c., and has all the materials to enable him to do it satisfactorily. He has a gutta percha paint for tin and other meted roofs, better than anything of the kind heretofore used here, as parties having need it, will testify. We would advise parties need injg anything of the kind to give him a call and examine for themselves, as all work is guaranteed to give satisfaction. Wp regret to anouuuce the death of Wil liam. B. Barker, Esq., of Limerick. Mr. B. died at the residence of H. P.

A citizens’ meeting has been called for next Tuesday, when the subject of loan'ng the city credit to the proposed line will be considered. Political.—In addition to the contested Congressional elections heretofore mentioned are those of the 9th Missouri and 9th Illinois Districts. The contestants (ten in number) are all Radicals. The official canvass of Iowa gives the follow ing splendid results: State ticket,' 36,000 Republican majority. First Congressional District, J. F. Wilson, 5891 majority. Second Congressional District, H. Price,7037 majority. Third Congressional District, W. B. Allison, 5000 majority. Fourth Congressional District, W. Lough ridge, 6031 mijority. Fifth Congressional District, T. M. Dodge, 4396 majority. Sixth Congressional District, A. W. Hubbard, 6315 majority. The members elect are all Republicans, of course. The official account in Illinois makes Lo gan’s majority 56,107. Lincoln’s mijority in 1864, 30,736. Republican gain, 25,371. Logan’s vote exceeds Linooln’s 13,769, while Dickey’s falls below McClellan’s 11,572. The total vote of the State is 350,323. This is 2*197 in excess of the vote of 1864. Nearly all the northern counties fell short of a full vote. Had they come out in their fhll strength, the total vote would have reached 375,000, and Logan’s ma jority would have been from 60,000 to 65,000. The Washington correspondent of the Cin cinnati Gazette relates the following: Throe days before the murder of Mr. Lin coln, he had made arrangements for an after noon ride with certain members ol his family, and the hour of 2 o’clock wis fixed upon. At that time, the President not appearing, word was sent to him that thff'party was waiting for him. He returned an answer that the Vice President had called upon him, and that he should not be able to go. Mr. Johnson re mained about two hours, when the President .joined his family, and in conversation regard ing the delayed ride, remurked, with much ap parent concern: “That miserable man l I can not anticipate the troubles he will cause me dur ing my second term of office." Vbby Good.—A tall, raw-boned Yankee was riding a diminutive specimen of the donkey tribe through the muddj streets of Gotham; and the animal being very stubborn, Jonathan found it quite difficult to induce him to accel erate his paoe. He used the persuasive eloquence of a hick ory stick, however, and at each blow he would drawl out, ■‘Git up, Bonypart; git up, I say!” A little Frenchman, in passing, heard, with rage, the name of his illustrious countryman applied to the ugly beast,and commenced heap ing a volley of abuse on the head of the offend ing Yankee. "Sair,” shouted the Ganl, “vot for you gull call zat ugly beast Napoleon? By gar, sair, I shall have ze grande sutls'hctione! “ “Git up, Bonypart!” was the only response. “Sucre! monsier, sair! I say what for you call zat vagabone horse Napoleon?" “Git up, Bonypart!" Here the Frenchman’s rage boiled over, and stamping his feet upon the pavement, he screamed: “Oh, by gar, I shall have ze grande satisfac tion! I shall have ze revenge. I have one leet le sheen dog at my home; I go call him Guil laume Washington, by garr Stork Breaking in Hiram.—Our corres pondent in Hiraiu informs u| that on Monday night last the store of John P. Hubbard & Co., at that place was broken open, the safe entered, and money to the amount of six or seven hundred dollars abstracted therefrom, together with valuable papers to the amount of three or four hundred dollars. As yet no clue to the robbers has been found. IlweiwlrHfiioM. Tke political article in tho laatnumber of tl^e Atlantic Monthly i* from the pen of Freder ick Douglas*. We quote below the paragraphs whiph convey most clearly his opinions re specting the treatment to which hi* race is nbw onfcitled : W ithout attempting to settle here the meta physical and somewhat theological question (about which so much has already been said anq written), whether once in the Union means always in the Union—agreeably to the formu la, pnee in grace always m grace—it is obvious to common sense that the rebellious States stafiu today, in point of law, precisely where thdy stood when, exhausted, bi-aten, conquer ed, they fell powerless at the feet of Federal authority. Their State governments were overthrown, and the live* and property of the leaders of the rebellion were forfeited. Iu re eoastriicting the institution* of these shattered and overthrown States, Congress should begin with a clean slate, and make clean work of it. Let there be ns hesitation. It would be a cow ardly deference to a defeated and treacherous President, if any account were uuule of the il He itimate,one-sided sham governments hnrri eu into existence for a malign purpose in the at) ience of Congress. These, pretended gov er iments, which were never submitted to the p< jp e, and from participation ill which 4,000, 00) of the loyal people were excluded by Pres idential ordor, should uow be treated accord ing to their true character, a* shams and im positions, and supplanted by true aud legiti mate governments, in the formation of which, loyal men, blaok-and white, shall participate. It is not, however, within the scope of this paper to point out the precise steps to to .taken, aid the meaus to be emtdoyed. '□■Tpeoplij a<e less concerned shout kneiie’flWn-vne granfl ead to be attained.. They demand sneb a re construction as shall put an end to the present anarchical state of tilings in the late rebellious States—where frightful murders and whole sale massacres are perpetrated in the very presence of Federal soldiers. This horrible opsint-ss they require shall cease. They want a1 recouslruction such as will protect loyal ihen, black and white, in their persons and property; such none as will cause Northern in dustry, Northern capital, and Northern civili zation to flow iuto the South, and make a man ffom New EnglarrWss much at horn" in Caro lhia as elsewhere im-the republic. No Chinese, Wall can now be tolerated. The South must be opened to the light oi law and liberty, ami this session of Congress is relied upon to complish this important work. The plain, common-sense way of doiug this Work, as intimated at the beginning, is simply to establish In the South one law, one govern ment, one administration of,justice, one condi tion to the exercise of the elective frauehiso, for men of all races and colors alike. This great measure is sought as earnestly by loyal White men as by loyal blacks, and is needed alike by both. Let sound political prescience but take tbe place of an unreasouing preju dice, and this will be done. V oriunaieiy, tne uonstmmon ot the United States knows no distinction between citizens on account of color. N either does it know any difference between a citizen of a State and a citizen of tlie United States. Citizenship evi dently includes all the rights of citizens, whether State or national If the Constiutioii knows none, it is clearly no part of the duty of a Republican Congress now to institute one.— The mistake ofthe last session was the attempt to do this very thing, by a renunciation of its power to secure political rights to any class ol citizens, with the obvious purpose to allow the rebellious States to disfranchise, i( they should see fit, their colored citizens. This unfortu nate blunder must now be retrieved, aud tho emasculated citizenship givon to the liegro sup planted by that contemplated in the Constitu tion ofthe United States, which declares that the citizens of each State shall enjoy all the rights and immunities of citizens ofthe several States—so that a legal voter jn any State shall be a legal voter In all the States. The “Dead-look.”—The New York World has announced during the past week that we have reached in politics a complete “dead-lock.” The South will not acoept the amendment, and the North can neither make it aocept it nor pass it without its consent; and the President can neither make the South yield nor the North yield, nor yield himself. Moreover, until the amendment is adopted the North can do abso lutely notliing. But situations like this are not novel. The North has already had some experience of this kind of embarrassment. In 1800 it found itself in almost a similar “fix.”— The South had no right to secede; but, accord ing to all the Democratic lawyers, nobody had - any right to prevent it. The President had the right to enforce the laws; but had no right to use force to arrest the law-breakers. The North had the right to save the Union; but no right to meddle with those who were destroying it, aud so on. The muddle was, logically consid ered, a perfect beau y. Then, when the ques tion of abolishing slavery came up, there were the same difficulties. As a military leader, the President had a right to emancipate the slaves; as a civil ruler, he had not; but he could neith er be wholly one nor wholly the other. Ho might issue a military proclamation; but it had to be constitutionally sound; and then, al though he might morally liberate the slaves, physically, we were told, they would remain “held and firmly bound.” The upshot of it all was that the North, in a spirit ofthe wildest indifference to the reasoning of Democratic sages, put down the rebellion and abolished slavery. It of course lost all character as a logician; hut then it Bayed the nation. We suspect if the present “dead-lock" should hap pen to last too long, the Free States will find a similar issue in their embarrassment They will with the greatest absurdity reorganize the South, and with the greatest illegality restore peace and good government; aud with tho greatest pigheadedness and stupidity peruse calmly the noble demonstrations of their lolly which the Democratic press is sure to furnish. —The Nation. The New York Herald is fairly earning the distinction of being the most radical jour nal in the country. Its old denunciations of Thaddeus Stevens and Charles Sumner are in strange contrast to the following recom mendations in its issue of Wednesday: President Johnson has said that if there are but five thousand good and loyal men in one of these disabled States, they are enough for its reconstruction. Congress, then, in a law pro viding for certain organic S.ate elections, and defining, as the President has done, who shall be voters, with the power and authority given to General Qraut to enforce the law in these elections, may very readily overcome this afore said obstruction of caste and color. Some such legislation, beginning at the bottom, is evidently demanded for Southern reconstruction. Tho interests of the South, the North, the Treasury, and of the whole Union, demand this legisla tion. Beginning the work of reconstruction, novo, Congress, in an enabling act, has only to weed out the impra jticable secesh and fire-eating elemeuts of the States concerned, and to put General Grant on gnard, in order to make the work of Southern restoration as simple as the rule of subtraction. The first essential is to accept the self-evident facts that the President’s work of reconstruction is an euibarrassmeut, that Congress must begin at the beginning, front Virginia to Texas, inas much as the rebellion, from the Potomac to the Rio Grande, though disarmed, stillremaius to be subdued. Toe Provost-Marshal Gexbral’s Re port.—This report, compiled with evident care contain* some item* which are worth special notice, as illustrative of the character of many of the soldiers who enlisted to fight for tlio Union. One ot the moat striking is the large number of desertions which are recorded. There were not less than 70,52(1 returned to the army; bow many more there were who never were returned it is impossible to say. But this fact is one which it is in portant to investigate, from the prevalence in some quar ters ot accusations that the war was chiefly fought on the part of the North by foreigners. The statistics of desertions tell a different story, for the great preponderance of such was in the largest Northern cities, and where the foreign element most largely existed. In these cities the was made a m tter of trade by bounty brokers, who in many cases fostered bounty* jumping, and foreigners were most coinmomj the oflenders in both cases. % But where the American element was the most prominent tlw desertions were far less in proportion, leadiut to the inevitable conclusion that American' enlisted for fighting, and not for money, to i for greater extent than foreigners. — jy.
