__-v— The Dralh Pehttltr. [OOBKEBFONOENCE OF THE PKES8.] Beccaria need not wait any longer for -an answer. The right of men or rather of society organized into governments to “clft the throats,” or to take the lives of othtc men, is nothing more than the right of every society to expel summarily from Itself every individu al that endangers its security. Because a man may not kill himself, it does not follow that a just government may not lawfully kill him. He owes his industry, his talents both to society and his own family, and there are 1 u ties which be has no right to shirk. ®ut a free to confess that when a man has coinini tad a crime, the just punishment o W ic i is death, I see no reason why be may no wi out infringing any principle of human justice anticipate the sentence of the law, and take his own life, nor couid lever understand either the humanity or policy of guarding criminals awaiting execution from suicide. But to return to the right of taking human life. I lua'iitain that it is a right everywhere assumed and conceded not only as to organiz ed governments, but as to individuals. Kathev than permit the peaceable disintegration of this republic, our government backed by the hearty support ot its citizens, called into the field to engage in war, two and a half millions of men, and put at least one and a half mil lion oi these into the peril of battle. It makes no difference that the most of these men were volunteers either from motives of patriotism or gain. Behind the operation of these motives we had our perfect machinery of compelling military service and resolutely used it, where it was necessary. When men are put into a war like that, it is meaut that a large percent age of them shall be killed. We do not devote to death any particular man or mother’s son, but cloarly we assert the right to take the life ol many mother’s sons to accomplish an end we consider more important than the preservation of those lives. We effected our object, and the nation went wild with joy and all the world applauded our success at a cost of 300,000 lives ot the elite of our population. The countrymen of Becccria deliberately en kindled aud commenced a war last year to bring under their political control a frontier province, and devoted an indefinite number of Italian lives to effect this object. They thought the freedom of Italy worth a hundred thou sand lives, and so it is. Other wars for less ■acred and necessary objects have been engag in with the sanction of the best moralists, and of the publio sentiment of the civilized world. The right of slaying in defence of our own life suddenly endangered is everywhere recog nized, and every well-kept house in the State has its armament of deadly weapons, to shoot and kill the midnight burglar who only imper ils our property. In every department of human service men every day deliberately determine to sacrifice their lives to the achievement for which they have been principally living. Sagacious phy sicians, sympathetic friends, dependent rela tives say to the missionaries of religion or Bcience, the Henry Martyns, thejudsons, the Mungo Parks, the Livingstons, the Kanes, it you visit these inhospitable regions, if yon tempt these sultry or arctic climates, the chauceB are two to one that you will lose your lives; it is certain that you will shorten them. They take ihe chances and pursue their work. No one looks upon them as suicides, but as having made the best use of a short life. The sagacious physician does not practice his own prudence. At fifty years of age he discovers that severe study, long and cold rides, irregular and restricted sleep will bring him to his grave in five years; but his enthusiasm is excited his habits are formed, his career with all its _ dangers has been chosen, his paticntB have claims upon him that he cannot resist, and he1 goes on to his foreseen doom. There are thou sands of men, who in the enthusiasm of pur suing some art or science, achieving some work, developing some invention or attesting some truth are cailed upon to estimate the value of their own lives, and to learn that there are many things lor which it may not only be lawful but even noble to sacrifice then . This excessive estimate of mere hnman lib, which Mr.Weadell Phillips says so much to en hance, is not a noble nor a Christian sentiment. It was strong in that earliest dramatic imperson ation of evil introduced in the hook of Job, and never more sueeringjy expressed than in the words, “All that a man has will he give for hit life.” It was feeble in Jesus, who claimed the right to lay down his own life, and said: He that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. It is not a sentiment that makes good patriots or good Christians, or chivalric and high-minded men. XUe special preciousness of human life is not taught, nay, it is most roughly aod terribly un taught by nature, but in this letter I cannot uu;old that view, for I want to answer a speci fic argument upon tbe impropriety of the death penalty. Ihe abrogation of the death penalty in Tus cany in filty years so far lessened the number of cr hues that the prisons became almost empty. I am U3t prepared with information to contra dict this assertion. Tho citation is conveniently remote. If the fact be as claimed, then I should say that au eject ha 1 been gratuitously assumea to be a cause. The mildness of the Tuscan man ners led to the abolition or the death penalty; the same mildness of manners lessened tht number of crimes. A highly refined people to whom death by violence, the paraphernalia ol public execution are repugnant, and who so compel the abolition of the death penalty, from the same tender-heartedness pervading socie ty, ahstaiu frdin crimes of violence, shudder at blood, aud become unused to deadly weapons. At tho same time the influence of abolishing the death penalty upon the small peroentage of persons capable of murder might be to take away die motive and so increase the instances of its occurrence. In England men were once hanged for stealing the value oi a shilling. It will hardly be claim ed that stealing in England has grown rare be cause it is now punished by a short imprison ment, but stealing has lessened because the na tion has grown in culture and civilization, aud the better sentiments of tbe people can now be trusted without being reenforced by the sever est punishment. Certainly, we should hesitate gravely before concluding that the mere lessening of the se verity of the punishment, tends of itself to less en the frequency of crimes. Our jurists and legislatures are proceeding upon the very oppo site conclusion. When smuggling increases fines and forfeitures are added. The temper, auce men have found that men will sell runi though fined for each offence $100. It is not proposed to lower the fine to $30, but to add imprisonment. But not to go as far as Tuscany for illustra tion, suppose we stay at home and ask what the effect of the practical abolition of capital punishment has been in Maine. After the separation, lor thirty years, while there was a reasonable probability that every murderer would be hung, murders were rare, occurring over the whole State, only once or twice in a period ot three years (I speak from no statis tics). Ihe very day your article appeared there were tour murder trials progressing in our neighboring county of York, two murders ot fienuisb and almost incredible atrocity had just begun to be investigated in our neighbor ing county of Androscoggin, and one fresh to hand had occurred in our very streets. _ X.

Friday.—James McLaughlin, Susan Duddy, and William Bowen, on search and seizure processes, paid $22.26 each. The examination in the case of Sarah H. Bacon, of Yarmouth, for alleged larceny of $300, the property of Mary Ann Jackson, took place. Messrs. Shopley & Strout appeared for the accused, and Messrs. Davis Drummond for the State. After a full Investiga tion of the matter she was discharged. Miaa I.. Carslinc Jsaea. Miss L. Caroline Jones died on Wednesday last, the 20th day of February, 1867. And it seems only just and befitting that a life so pure and so useful should not pass away with out some special recognition and tribute, in the community where she lived, and was so well known—for it will be admitted by com mon consent, among those who knew her well, that but very few in any sphere of life, have better performed their part, and carried to their grave a fairer record of well doing. Miss Jones had rare traits of character and she filled her life full of useful activity and good deeds. Her early education was conduct ed under the best tuition afforded by this her native city. She made rapid advancement and was a favorite pupil of some of the best instructors of the time. Her father, Captain John Jones, died while she was yet young,and her mother was taken from her side just -as she was entering into the prime of woman hood. Thus left an orphan, together with a younger and surviving sister, she was school ed to self-reliance, and soon developed that womanly capableness and efficiency which dis tinguished her subsequent life. Sho soon be came, from a natural aptitude and competent instruction, an accomplished accountant, and all her affairs were transacted with the care, intelligence, and accuracy that belong to mercantile life. She was widely known here by almost every class of our citizens, and also, to hundreds abroad in different parts of the country, some of whom are, or have been, among the most distinguished names, and she was held in great respect and esteem by all who knew her, from the humblest to the most exalted. With the most unassuming manners, she has always maintained, by a natural dig nity and self-respect, a high social position, and in her social life it was, that her fine qual ities of mind and heart were most apparent.— As no heart was ever more tender, so no haDd was ever more efficient and prompt according to its means. And this genuine goodness gave oolor, and a flavor to all her intercourse with the world. It was a fiue essence rather than a visible or tangible quality. It was a hidden and active leaven leaving no distinct trace of itself, but pervading the whole loaf with a sweet and wholesome savor. It was a life principle in all her doings, and in all her thoughts. Thus, on the common level of life and within the ordinary range of daily exis terce, she carried herself nobly, and had but few equals in that order, symmetry, frankness, tenderness and fidelity, which makes human character admirable. But in the higher sphere, on the higher plane of life, in the realm of faith and the higher sentiments, she was by no means lacking. True as the needle, and firm er-than steel was she to her religious convic tions, and to the form of worship to which she was allied, and in which she was nourished from ohildliood. While in her faith she Lore a Catholic spirit, and kept her mind open and hospitable to new truth, she did not lose the distinctness of her views in any glittering generalities of opinion. So the great senti ment of patriotism was a part of hor nature.— It was a deeply implanted principle, always alive, and often aglow with genuino fervor. But few men had more true public spirit, or watched with more pride, or a more con stant and enlightened interest, the progress and welfare of her native city; and hundreds remember her l'aith, and zeal, and labors in the nation's cause, all through the late fearful struggle of our country with treason. Who showed a more persistent patriotism, or watch ed with a keener interest the issues of the conflict? Thus was it with her whole life purity, fidelity and honor always conspicuous. In every relation we find her to be one whose life may be profitably pondered, and the mem ory of whose virtues will sink deep and linger long in the hearts of those who best knew and most loved her. We would place this humble wreath of pub lic tribute upon her sleeping dust. While hundreos of our fellow citizens will drop a tear of affection and respect over her bier, and will follow her with benedictions out into the deep stillness of yonder grave, and its dreamless sleep— “There shall the yew her sable branches spread, And mournful cypress rear her Dinged head; From thence shall thyme and myrtle sond perfume, And laurel evergreen o’ershade the tomb.” C. Twentv-Second of Fbbbuaby.—The anni versary of the birth-day of Washington passed off yesterday more quietly than usual. There was some display of flags, but it seemed as if most of the vessels in port did not own one, as very few were displayed on the shipping. The Liverpool and Glasgow steamers, as usual, made the most gorgeous display. Moody kept the glorious old banners displayed on the Ob servatory, and on some of the public and pri vate buildings they were displayed. Salutes were fired from the Montreal Ocean steamer Nestorian, and at Fort Preble. There was some tooting of horns in the for mer part of the day, but it was squelched in the afternoon. In the evening the boys resum ed the noise and kindled bonfires in various places, but the police soon extinguished them and drove the boys home. Washington and Tin Hons. Mb. Editob:—Can you tell me why the in genuous youth of Portland commemorate the birth-day of Washington by blasts of tin trum pets? Was the youthful patriot partial to that instrument? His achievement with his hatchet among his father’s “apple trees,” is preserved in immortal verse; but what did that grand and reverent character do in the tin orn line, that has escaped the historic inquis i iveness of your Cokhespokdeht.

Larceny of Tobacco.—Deputy Marshals Wentworth and Irish yesterday arrested a lad named Finn, residing on Centre street, who had sold a box of tobacco at such a low price that the officers were convinced that it must have been stolen. The Alleged^jAbcent.—We mentioned in Friday’* issue the arrest of Sarah A. Bacon for alleged larceny of $300 from a pauper who died at the Alms House in Yarmouth. The exam- I ination into the matter came off yesterday he- I fore Judge Kingsbury in the Municipal Court. It appeared, from the testimony that Mary Ann Jackson, of that town, being afflicted with some disease, placed herself in the Alms House iu care of Miss Bacon, who was matron. Miss Jackson was not a pauper. She had $300 in money, which she handed to the Overseers of the Poor, and before her death, at her request, they returned it to her. After her death, which occurred a short time subsequent to the money being returned to her, the Overseers, as wag their duty, made enquiries both of Mr. Skillings, the keeper of the Alms House, and Miss Bacon, as to what had become of the money. At first they could learn nothing, but afterwards Mr. Skillings told them that Miss Bacon had it, and that it was given to her by Miss Jackson before she died. Miss Bacon, on being questioned about it, prevaricated, being afraid the money would be taken trom her.— The Overseers then took legal advice, and in stituted the complaint against Miss Bacon. At the examination yesterday Miss Bacon told a straightforward and undoubtedly truth ful story of the circumstances. How that Miss Jackson gave her the money belore she died, what dispositioq she wanted her to make of a portion of it—such as paying her bills for med ical attendance, burial, &c., and furnishing a stone for her grave—and telling her that sho might retain what was left for the kindness ex hibited towards her. Had Miss Bacon made this statement to the Overseers when they questioned her, no com plaint would have been made against her. Judge Kingsbury in discharging the respon dent, said the Overseers of the Poor at Yar mouth had done no more than their duty in order to discover what had become of the mon ey, which they knew Miss Jackson bad in her possession before she died. The case was ably managed by A. A. Strout, Esq., of the firm of Shepley & Strout, for the accused, and by J. H. Drummond, Esq., of the firm of Davis & Drummond, for the State. International Telegraph Line. -It will be noticed by the advertisement of tho Inter national Telegraph Company, that their lines are now in comple order from Bath to Boston, at which latter place they connect by indepen dent lines with New York, Philadelphia, Bal timore, Washington, and other parts of the country. Their rates of tariff will be as low as by any other lines, and every attention will be paid to secure the safe and corect transmis sion of messages. Mr. James G. Smith, who for a long series of years has been employed in the American and Western Union Telegraph Companies,and who was, until recently, Superintendent of the line from Sackville to Portland, has taken the Su perintendency of the International Line. The principal office of the company in this city is on the corner of Fpre and Exchange streets, in the new block recently erected. A branch of fice, for the accommodation of up-town people, is established at Covell’s apothecary store, un der the Preble House. The company intend to open stations at various points, and to extend their lines. We trust the public will favor them with a fair share of patronage. Public Libbabt.—Of the thirteen corpora tors named in the act to incorporate the “Port land Institute and Public Library,” seven met at the Council Chamber yesterday afternoon— Judge Shepley, Collector Israel Washburn, Messrs. John Neal, Esq., Bev. Dr. J. C. Stock bridge, William Willis, Esq., Bev. W. H. Fenn and Lorenzo D. M. Sweat, Esq. Mr. Neal took the chair, and Mr. Sweat was elect ed Clerk. Tho act oi incorporation was form ally accepted. The corporators then pro ceeded to act upon a large number of names presented, of gentlemen who might become useful associates. Between two and thiee hun dred were elected, twenty or thirty being pres ent at the meeting. A committee consisting of Messrs. Feun, Shepley, Washburn, Willis, Sweat, Stone and Stockbridge was charged with the duty of preparing a constitution and by-laws, to he submitted at a future meeting to the corporators and associates. The chairman was then authorized to call the next meeting, whenever the committee is prepared to report, and the meeting adjourned. Tho enterprise has been auspiciously launched; it is to be hoped that the voyage may be prosperous. Detention. — In consequence of No. 18 (freight) train getting off the track yesterday, near the Stark water station, the passenger and mail train from Island Pond and Montreal was detained, so that it did not arrive in this city until 6 o’clock in the afternoon. There were eighteen cars off the track. Mr. Latham, manager of trains, made ar rangements to bring the passengers and mails from South Paris and the stations this side, also the Maine Central train, into this city so as to connect with the train for Boston. This arrangement would have succeeded but for the No. 5 (Maine Central flight) train getting off the track about two miles above Yarmouth, which detained the passenger and mial train from Bangor, &c„ two hours, and it failed to connect with the train for Boston. Books Lost.—On the night of the great fire in this city, the subscriber lost the larger por tion of his library. Among the books he en deavored to save were complete sets of the North American Review, and the American Quarterly Register. These were taken to a house on Cumberland street. In collecting them again it was found that volumes 10 and 72 of the N. A. Review were missing; also three volumes of the Quarterly Register. It is pos sible that they got mixed with the books of others, and that having been dropped, they were picked up by some person in the street. If so, and any one will give information in re spect to them, or any of them, they will confer a great favor. W. H. Shailek. Casco Stbbbt Chubch.—We learn that Rev. O. T. Moulton, of New Hampton, N. H., has accepted the call recently extended to him, to become Pastor of Casco Street Church, and that he will immediately enter upon his duties. From what wo hear of M r. Moulton’s success elsewhere, we congratulate this church and so ciety in being so fortunate in securing him as a successor to Dr. Graham. Temperance Meeting —The next meeting of the West Cumberland Association will be holden at the new meetiug house, Sebago, on Thursday, the 28th day of February, at 1 o’clock P. M., and continued through the evening. E. A. Gibbs, Secretary. Central Church.—We are informed that Rev. Dr. Tefft gave notice on last Sabbath that he would preach a discourse appropriate to the death of William Porter Chase, in Central Church to-morrow afternoon, at the usual time of public service. The attention of the public wishing window shades for stores and dwellings, is called to the large assortment on hand or manufactured to order, at Stonoham & Bailey’s, No. 1681-2 Mid dle street, which they offer very cheap. All lovers of the bivalves should go to At wood’s Oyster House, Centre street, for a sup ply of those splendid Norfolk oysters. The attention of persons in want of a book keeper is called to an advertisement in another column. _ ———————■—— THE STATE. —Miss Fernald, daughter of Mr. Cyrus Fer nald of York, aged 20 years, died of the black measles last week. She was a young lady of many fine traits of character and beloved by a large circle of acquaintance. She had recent ly made a donation of $100 to tho new Church at Beach Ridge, York. —Bath is excited over the too severe correc tion of a boy in one of the grammar schools of the city. —The Rockland Gazette is informed that on Tuesday, Feb. 19th, as Mr. Joseph D. Williams was attempting to cross the ice, from Mill River to Simonton’s Point, unfortunately broke through and was drowned. He was about 46 years of age and leaves a wife and two small children. The first municipal election of the city of Saco will he held on the eleventh proximo. At the town meeting called to vote upon the question of the acceptance or rejection of a city charter, the vote was unexpectedly large, and the result was 46fi yeas to 444 nays-a majority of 21. —A number of persons under the direction of a clairvoyant, are digging for buried treas ure on the beach near Belfast, The clairvoy ant professes to see in her mind’s eye, a huge ohest of treasure a few feet under ground. It is supposed that evil influences keep the thing moving, as they approach it. The search has been carried on sometime hut we do not learn that anything more valuable than clams has yet been found. —The Whig learns that the Trustees of Ban gor Theological Seminary, at a meeting on the 20th inst, elected Rev. John R. Herrick, of N. Y., to the Professorship of Systematic eology, made vacant by the resignation of Dr. Harris. —The Eastport Sentinel says the island of Campobello, celebrated as the spot where Fen -The Pioneer say$ the dwellmlhiMapfijm and vicinity are ptfKtiouing, we understand, for a road from Pid^ue Isle to Ball’s millsaud ultimately to be extended to A Aland, ian squadrons were first “set in the field,” dur ing the late attempt to capture British North America, has been sold to a Mr. Seymour, of New York,for $8,000. Mr. Seymour has beeu engaged mining upon the Island, or rather in investigating the mineral resources of the island, for several years. The sale includes the whole island, except about eighty acres owned by the Wilsons. The deposits of peat existing there are immense, and of many times tho value paid by the purchaser tor the entUe property. A correspondent of the Gospel Banner writing from Peru, Oxford County, says that a monument is to be erected by the friends of the late Miss. Green, on the spot in Auburn where her remains were found last fall. —A lumberman writing to the Whig from a logging camp on tho Mattawainkeag says: \\ e have about two aud a half ieet of snow, and the late rains have encrusted it so thick as to very much retard lumbering operations —notwithstanding which more lumber will he hauled into the Mattawamkeag and its tiibuta ries this winter than in any previous one. j mnguzhif*. The Atlantic Monthly for March opens with some further chapters of Holmes’ “Guardian Angel,” which are charmingly written, and in which we are introduced to the hero of fee tale. Professor Agassiz’s Interest ing paper on fee “Glacial Phenomena ol of Maine,” is concluded We quote one pas sage; The glacial traces over the state of Maine, and especially between Bangor and the sea coast, afford means of estimating aproximately the thickness of the ice-sheet which ouce moved over the whole land, as well as its limi tations during a later period, when it had be §un to wane. In order to advance across a illy country and over mountainous ridges ris ing to a height of twelve and fifteen hundred feet in the southern part ol the state, and to a much higher level in its northern portion, the ; ice must have been several times thicker tliau the height of the inequalities over which it passed; otherwise it would have become en cased between these elevations, which would f\ave act£d as walls to enclose it. We are therefore justified in supposing that the ice fields when they poured from the North over , w bug land to the sea, had a thickness of at least five or six thousand feet. On a future occasion 1 shall give an account of the drift phenomena along our Atlantic coast, showing also that at that period the ice-fields were not bounded by our present shoreline, but extend ed considerably beyond it, over surfaces now occupied by the ocean. The article on “Chicago,” by Par top, in long, but will not fail of readers, as it is one of tbe most entertaining and instructive of that writer’s recent papers. The existing political status is ably and vigorously discussed by Carl Schurz, under the title of “The True Problem." “A Glimpse ot Genoa,” by Mr. Howells, is as charming as his sketches of Ital ian travel usually are; and the story entitled “My Friend Bingham,” by Henry Janies, jr., is an original and striking one. “Katherine Morne” still drags its slow length along, and is as stupid as ever; “George Bedillion, Knight,” is concluded, and we think will strike most readers as among the very best of Mrs. Davis’ powerful stories. It is the only one we are now able to recall which does not leave a pain ful or disagreeable impression; this is entirely satisfactory. “Mr. Hardback on the Deriva tion of Man from the Monkey,” is of course intended to throw ridicule on the theories of Huxley and Darwin upon the origin of races. “Out on Picket,” is by Higginson, and “Bags” by Mrs. Austin. Of the poetical contributions to this number, one, the touching class poem by Holmes, en titled “All Here,” we reprinted yesterday. The Bivcr, a musical and thoughtful compo sition by Harriet Presoott Spofford, appears on our fourth page to-day. The Literary Beviews in this number arc lively. Thb Galaxy for March 1st is a rich num ber. Trollope’s “Clavenngs” is concluded, al though it requires sixty-six pages of type con siderably smaller than that ordinarily used in the Galaxy. Mrs. Davis’s “Waiting for the Verdict,” is continued, and opens up some scenes more promising than those of the first number. There is a lively description by Geo. Spence, of “The Temple and Lincoln’s Inn” in London; a sharp but able article bp W. L. Alden, on “Mazzini’sLast Manifesto,” and some practical and seasonable “Hints for Visitors to Paris. “Rien Ne Va Plus” is a description, with illustrations, of various fashionable games played at the European watering places. The poetical contributions are “Nemesis,” by H.H., and “Her Answer,” by Mrs. W. H. Palmer. Godby’s Lady’s Book for March has a charming steel engraving, “Watching Baby,” and its usual variety of Fashion and Fancy Work illustrations. An extremely well-told story by Marian Harland, entitled “Theory versus Practice,” opens the number. The oth er articles sustain the long-established reputa tion of this chief of the fashion monthlies. Blackwood’s Magazine for January, some what late in arriving, has the following table of contents: “Our Naval Defences: where arc we?” “Nina Balatka: The Story of a Maiden of Prague,”—conclusion; “Sir William Parker, the Admiral of the Fleet”; “Conington’s Translation of the ASneid”; “Cornelius O’ Dowd”; “The Campaign in Western Germa ny"; “Women and Children in America”; “Brownlows—Part I.”; “Who are the Reform ers, and what do they want?” “The Brownlows” is anew serial which opens well. “Women and Children in America” reads like the last despairing outburst of tory ism which, hopeless of making any headway against republican institutions, takes it out in railing not at the men who insist on and trame them, but at the women and children who grow up under them. If feminine and juvenile hu manity are not going to the dogs here in Amer ica, then there is no reliance to be placed upon “Blackwood.” Reprinted by the Leonard Scott Publishing Company,38 Walker street, New York. Every Saturday for this week contains a second portion of the sketch by St. R. Tail landier, of “Charles Edward and the Countess of Albany," translated from the French for this magazine; also some chapters of “A Girl at a Railway Junction’s Rerdy,” which will be found lively. Thackeray’s delightful Bto ry of “The Village on the Cliff,” is concluded. There is one character in this story, that of Fontaine, which seems to us fully worthy to have beon limned ly the master pencil of Thackeray himself. If his daughter can give us such work as this, we may well believe that the m mtle of her father's genius has fallen up on her. Effects of Strikes in England.—A let ter-from Loudon describes the strikes in En gland to have the most lamentable effects. It characterises them as possessing all of the evils of civil war, and that, instead of lists of killed and wounded, there are the starved and sick, and the crowded work-honses and casual sick wards instead of the camp or field hospitals. The funds of trades unions are getting low; and the inquiries are frequent whether one class of workmen have the moral right, in stop ping work and in hindering others from tak ing their places, to consign to idleness and poverty thousands whose interests are associa ted with the labor the strikers refuse to do. Some think the disintegration of most of the trades unions in England is close at hand. Burnett’s Coooaine has received universal en dorsement. No other preparation possesses such re markable properties for embellishingandstrcugthen Ing the hair, and rendering it dark and glossy. It cures baldness and eradicates dandruff.

After years of careful experiment, success has crowned our efforts, and we now otter to the world a confection without a single fault, being safe con venient, effectual and pleasant. No injurious result can occur, let them be used in whatever quantity. Not a particle of calomel enters their composition, They may be used without further preparation, and at any time. Children will eagerly devour all you give them, and ask for more. They never fail in’ ex pelling Worms from their dwelling place, and they will always strengthen the weak and emaciated, even when he is not afflicted with worms. Various remedies have from time to time, been re commended, such as calomel, oil of woi mseed, turp entine, &c., producing dangerous, and sometimes fatal consequences. After much research, study and ex ^jjkraeing several years, tire proprietors ot r ellow s W orm Lozenges, have succeeded in pro ducing this remedy, tree from all objections, and posi tively safe, pleasant and effectual. They do not kill tlie worms, but act by making their dwelling place disagreeable to them.
