ALBERT NEWCOMB HAWES, my7 119 4'ommrrrinl (Street. dll _CLOTHING._ TO GRANGERS, SOVEREIGNS OF INDUSTRY, anti all Olliers who ate interested in the Great and Glorious work of Reformation LEND A LISTENING EAR. With the very best of feelings towards your respective organizations we propose to address a tew words to each individual ot your order, also to the order as a body. The subject we propose to discuss is your method of purchasing goods of RETAIL DEALER*, for immediate use; and while we do not hesitate to say that we hope to derive some benefit from our efforts, we trust at the same time that we may benefit each individual mem ber of yonr order. 4s a body, through a Committee, you make arrangements with cer tain dealers to supply the wants of each member of your society, stipulating that in consideration ot the great amount of custom to be obtained from the order, that a discount of to PER CENT, must be deducted from the “REGULAR PRICES’* ©I the dealer. Tour object in so doing is to obtain your goods at as low a figure as possible, or as near the manulacturer’s price as possible. THIS IS JUST AND WHOLLY RIGHT. But we ask DO TOE obtaiu your goods at as LOW a price as you should under the circumstances. Has a merchant that does business on a principle OTHERWISE THAN ONE PRICE, A FIXED OR STANDARD PRICE 1 Can yon conscientiously say that you are not charged an EXTRA PRICE so as to enable the dealer to deduct the IO PER CENT agreed upon 1 But you say we do not let the dealer know that we are a member of any society until after the “BARGAIN” is made, therefore we gain the 10 PER CENT. We beg to differ, and can prove what we assert. Tou may obtain the desired result THE FIRST TimE, BUT BEWARE OF THE SECOND ! You are known and a price is charged accordingly. We do uot say this through malice or prejudice, but strictly in a pure business view. We Speak of What We Know! We are manufacturers ot clothing on an IMMENSE scale, probably no other concern in America manufactures and sells more clothing than we do in all of our various stores scattered throughout this coun try. Wc buy our cloth tor CASH ot the mills, make it up iuto all grades ot clothing, and sell it directly to the CONSUMER AT A SMALL PER CENTAGE ABOVE MANUFACTURING COST. At the prices we sell our clothing wc could not deduct 10 PER CENT from our prices -A-HsTO XjI'VIE I The tact that we own our Clothing at LESS prices Ilian NINE TENTHS ot other dealers, justifies us iu saying that “FANCY PRICES’* must be asked to admit of so great a deduction. WE CHALLENGE EACH MEMBER OF THE ORDERS To call and compare our GOODS and PRICES with the goods and prices you have seen at other stores. Oar prices are marked on each garment in PLAIN FIGURES, and we defy any and all others, unless having equal facilities, to sell as GOOD Ci.OTHINGfor as low figures as we do. We will venture to say without fear ot contradiction, that there is not a single individual connected with the orders named but what will agree that the When carried out to the LETTER, is not only the MOST FAIR, but the MOST HONORABLE method of doing business. It guarantees EQUAL RIGHTS to all, either YOUNG or OLD. EXPERIENCED or INEXPE RIENCED BUYERS are sure ot obtaining tbeir goods at a uniform price, and are positive ot receiving the full value of their money in vested. This Fact Must be Apparent to all Fair Minded People. Common goods are marked, in PLAIN FIGURES, a LOW PRICE. Medium goods at MEDIUM PRICES. First-class goods at HIGHER PRICES. There is no chance (or MISUNDERSTANDING or MISREPRESEN TATION, the purchaser receives EXACTLY what he pays for. And Under Our System, IF THE CUSTOMER IS NOT ENTIRELY SATISFIED WITH THEIR PURCHASE, OR IF THE GOODS DO NOT FIT. OR IF THEY FIND THAT THEY CAN BUY THEM CHEAPER, RETURN THEM AT ONCE AND EXCHANGE FOR OTHERS OR RECEIVE YOUR MONEY. • That we are not “MIDDLEMEN,” but MANUFACTURERS, and that the CONSUMER comes directly in contact with the Manufacturer when purchasing of us. BEAR IN MIND That we have the LARGEST stock ol to be found east of Boston, and that w'e shall always be happy to see you whether you wish to PURCHASE Of LOOK, and that OUR PRICES are alw ays lower than all other dealers. 0^ B0> Mi ■ ■ m a.

Taking into consideration the character ot its vouchers, the history of its cures aud the immense increasing demand, Vegetine may be fairly en- , titled the leading medicine of the age. For scro'ula in the blood, Vegetine is an in lallible remedy, and no person need suli'er from humors, ulcers, and all diseases arising from impure blood, if Vegetine is used according to directions, i There is not a case of scrofula in existence ttiat Vegftine will not cure, provided, however, the vital functions have not lost their power of action, i all that may be said to the contrary notwithstanding. Vegetine is pleasant to the taste, mild in its in- i fluence, and absolute in its action on disease, as the following unquestionable evidence will show. .. ■ ±'AJLJL> JNJiAKJLiX I $400.00 ! !

Tbe humor spread over me to such an extent that I was rolled 1 in bran to prevent me from scratching my person j The disease finally settled in my head. 1 remained in this condition ahcut twenty years, troubled all 5 tbe time with sores breaking in my head anti dig- ] charging corruption lrom my ear. At this time a small kernel appeared cn my neck, gradually in- I creasing in size until a tumor formed of such im- , mense size 1 could see it by turning my eyes down ward. All this time I was taking vinous* remedies for my blood without any substantial benefit I then went to a prominent physician in Boston, who, during bis treatment of six months, lanced the \ tumor eight times, which cost me nearly $400. This let* me with a rough, aggravated sore, without at all < diminishing the size of the tumor, and in a sickly, feeble connition. 1 consulted another physician in ' Natick, who, after considerable time, succeeded in 1 healing the sore without reducing the size. At this point I commenced to use Vegetine, through the < earnest persuasion of a ftiend. After 1 had taken this medicine about one week 1 expeiienced wonder- ( ful sensations. My whole body seemed to be under- j going a radical change, until, finally, the tumor broke and discharged frightful quantities. From this time 1 it decreased in size until the bunch disappeared, but i my neck still bears the ugly scar3 of the sore and lance. I am now healthy and strong and able to < work every day. I will also mention that I have been an acute suf ferer from inflammatory rheumatism ever since I can ] remember, until commencing the use of Vegetine, when almost immediately all rheumatic pains ceased.

Portland, May 4, 1876. j The American Case.. The letter addressed by Secretary Fish to the Secretary of the American legation at London, a copy of which was sent to the House Monday, is a long and exhaustive re ' n vi vuv ^/viubo v uio^uiu JU IvgalU IU LUC extradition of WiDslow, the Boston forger, and defense of the position taken by our government in the matter. It appears that the reason given by Lord Derby in his note to the Washington cabinet the refusal of Great Britain to surrender Winslow is the course of this country in the Lawrence case. In reply to this Secretary Fish calls Lord Derbj’s attention to the fact that this gov srnmeut asked the surrender of Lawrence precisely as it has asked the surrender of all other fugitives, who have been delivered by Great Britain under the treaty of 1842, com plying on its part with the requirement of the treaty, and neither by expression or im plication entering into any arrangement, but simply requiring the fugitive to be delivered to justice. He furthermore asserts that the position of Great Britain is totally opposed to the views recorded in parliament papers, asserted in diplomatic correspondence, and recognized in judicial decisions. The his tory of the several extradition treaties and the practices under them is reviewed at great length. It appears that in both Great Britain and the United States the surrendered fugi tives have been tried for other offenses than those for which they had teen delivered, the rule having been that where the criminal was reclaimed in good faith, and the proceeding was not an excuse or pretence to bring him within the jurisdiction of the court, it was no violation of the treaty or of good faith to pro ved against him on other charges than the particular one under which he had been sur rendered. The Secretary ridicules the right of Great Britain to demaud as a condition of her en gagement to surrender a fugitive criminal, a itipulation not provided in the treaty but isked on the ground of an act of parliament vassed twenty-eight years after the treaty was intered into. As this country recognizes no rower in a British statute to modify a pre. viously existing treaty, Mr. Fish has not felt tailed upon to examine particularly the pro visions of that act: but he mentions that Sreat Britain reserves to herself, while mak ng conditions on this country, the right to ry fugitives surrendered to her for other Times than those set down in the requisition or extradition, or proven by the facts on vhich the extradition is based. Since the tassage of the act of 1870, Great Britain has .btained from this Government some thirteen varrants of extradition, and instituted a nuch larger number of proceedings to obtain xtradition. In no instance has Great Iritain thought it necessary to tender any ueh stipulation as she now asks from the Jnited States, or to present requests for ex radition in any way different from that in vhich they were presented prior to 1870. As regards the particular case of Winslow, dr. Fish is not aware of any intention of rying him for auy offences ol her thau those in which the indictiueuts were transmitted, ,nd for which his surrender was demanded; mt the United States will give no stipulation if which the treaty does not authorize the lemand. He cannot recognize the right of .ny ether power to change at its pleasuie md without the assent of the United States he terms and conditions of an executory greement, in a treaty solemnly ratified be ween the United States and that power, le thinks that the tweuty-seventh section of he British act of 1870 wa3 specially intended o exempt the treaty with the United States rom the application of any of the new con litions or provisions embodied in that act, nd to leave that treaty to he construed and he surrender of foreigners thereunder to be nade as had been previously done. The vast ignorance of the Argus in regard o political history and current events has eceived another illustration. In its issue of L'uesday it informs its readers that “the ar ;umeut of Judge Hoar in the impeachment rial on Saturday was crisp and to the point.” Considering that Judge Hoar made no argu nent Saturday or any other day in the im >eachment trial, and that he has nothing vhalever to do with the case this iuforma ion can scarcely be regarded as reliable. The dci/us evidently labors under the impression hat Judge Hoar is a member of Congress ud a manager in the impeachment trial. It bould go right to work and study up the his ory of this country. The debut of Miss Anna Dickenson at the Jlobe Theatre, Boston, does not appear to lave been a distinguished success. The wel :ome extended to her was warm, the audi ■ nee was kind and sympathetic, aud the crit cs have many nice things to say. But those who read between the lines perceive that Miss Dickenson showed the possession of no great Iramatic ability, and that her cliaracteriza •ion was disfigured by grave faults. The ;>lay, -‘The Crown of Thorns,” is condemned I is wanting in ease, interest, and variety, the lialogue being sometimes stilted and some :imes commonplace, and the action too hur ried. Chables Francis Adams seems to con sider Mr. Blaine the best of the Republican candidates, and says “he has a head of his own, and would have good counsellors, and if elected would doubtless see the necessity of discretion and a sound, patriotic policy.” The fact that Dom Pedro is not a fool is a perpetual surprise to the reporters and cor respondents. Wherever he goes they an nounce with undisguised astonishment that “he manifests an intelligent interest in every thing of importance that is brought to his attention.” Why a man of culture and good parts should be expected to do otherwise is not apparent to most of us. Col. Ethan Allen has met and voted unanimously that he will meet again in con vention at Phdadelphia on the 20th of July. He anticipates a harmonious session. For tunately tor peace these Liberal convocations are not hampered by the two-thirds rule which obtains in Democratic conventions. The conduct of the Direct Cable Company is in marked and favorable contrast with that parsued by the old company. They made no increase of rates for messages while the old line was broken. Political Sews. Not a single Democratic journal has seen Doorkeeper Fitzhugh’s wonderful letter yet. It has been discovered out in Illinois that the Democratic “Little Unknown” is likely to be Congressman Morrison. The President’s last message is the most popular of his administration. The general op'nlon seems to be, that the document gives the Democratic investigators their fill of in formation. The county conventions in Michigan seem to be about equally divided between Blaine and Bristow, with now and then a delegate in favor of giving a complimentary vote to Senator Chandler. The Syracuse Journal doubts if Gov. Til den’s name wiH be submitted to the Demo cratic National Convention, and it thinks ex Gov. Seymour is likely to get the nomina tion after all. It is curious that most of the Democratic journals in the South and West that indorse Tilden are for soft money. Dees this point to dodging the currency question at St. Louis, or do the soft money politicians see through Tilden ? Cincinnati lhetoric borrows a certain gory quality from the principal industry of the town, which is sometimes rather startling. Thus we read in the Commercial that “the butcher knives for the slaughter of Thurman are being whetted on his uncle’s shin bone.” Congressman Landers says he has been lied about. He did not say he should retire from politics, and did not call Gov. Hendricks and other eminent Democratic politicians “skunks.” He seems to be another victim of the irrepressible and iridescent imagina tion of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Ex Senator Tipton of Nebraska has gone over to the Democratic party. He doesn't see any need of keeping up the half way house, the liberal Republican national com mittee any longer, and so he has asked Col. Ethan Allen to drop his name from the roll of that commit'ee. The New Orleans Republican anticipates a dissolution of the copartnership heretofore existing in Louisiana under the style and firm of the Democratic Conservative party, and predicts that, as the Democrats have shown their hands the conservatives will re turn to the Republican party. Tbe chief argument which has thus lar been advanced by the Democrats of Indiana in favor of their candidate for Governor, Congressman Williams, is that he wears blue jean clothes. That is undoubtedly a great recommendation, but his friends should not allow the impression to get abroad that his clothing is the best part of him. The Washington correspondent of the Cin cinnati Enquirer telegraphs: “Democratic Congressmen of Indiana are bluer than Will iams’ blue jeans over the news of the elec tion at Indianapolis. They don’t feel bad be cause there was a riot and several killed, but 4,000 Republican majority is a sad blow. Landers is the only happy man among them.” A little talk begins to be heard in Wash ington Democratic circles about ex-Gov. raimer oi Illinois as a presiuenuai compro mise. The ex-governor was a Democrat before he became a Republican, he fought in the war, the grangers like him, etc. The true inwardness of all which is, that some of the Democratic politicians at the capital are wakiug up to the formidable properties of the Davis movement, and becoming very anxious to head it off. Current Notes. It is becoming more clear every week that the tendency toward inflation and repudia tion is very strong within the Democratic party. Yet men wonder why the independ ents hesitate to trust it l—N. T. Tribune. Blaine and Bristow seems to be a very pop ular ticket in some quarters—notably in Pennsylvania and parts of this State. A good many Republicans begin to believe they want both these gentlemen.—Buffalo Ex press. Senator Morton’s leview of csrtaic matteis of Indiana war history, following soclose upon the Indianapolis electiou, has left a vague im pression upon the Hoosier Democrats that something has struck them. Hendricks and his blue jeans henchmen will not take much interest in subsequent proceedings.—Cincin nati Gazette. For outselves, remembering that in the past elections when a Great Unknown has run, he has shown himself to be a Great No body like Polk and Pierce, tie much piefer a candidate with a record, with convictions, with blocd and brawn, aud not a negative, flaccid, trimming afterthought, taken up at the last moment by a weary convention—NT. Y. Herald. The grand victory in New Hampshire, the reduced Democratic majority in Connecti* cut, the gam of two hundred and eighteen Republican supervisors iu New York, and of about one hundred in Michigan, together with unprecedented Republican gains in the municipal elections this Spring iu the sever al Stales, all point clearly and distinctly to a Republican victory in November.—Albany Journal. Without the aid of a “uuited South” the Democrats cannot look for success; and a “united South” cannot be looked for under fair conditions. Let the voting at the South take place as the voting at the North will take place,—that is, let every man be free to vote as he would vote,—and the Republicans would have more than half the Southern electoral colleges on their side.—Boston Traveller The truth is that in counties largely Dem ocratic the negro, although not whipped, or assassinated, or overawed by actual vioreuce, is cowed into submission because he knows that all the machinery of justice is in the hands of his enemies, who have no scruples in using all its terrors against him. He know be can expect no mercy from white juries. This is done all over the Gull states. They are at peace because the consti'utioual amendments are defied—practically abolished. —Ex-Governor Ames of Mississippi. If the Democracy are successlul in the na tional campaign this year, it will not be be. cause they have the support of any consid erable number of the States which were loyal to the Union during the war ol the re bellion. They count, on the contrary, upon carrying almost solidly the States which at tempted to secede, and which were in open revolt against the government, together with the border States which sympathized with them although not drawn formally into the rebellion.—Albany Express. A gentleman in this city has, wo believe, an autograph letter written by Washington from Mount Vernon to the Secretary of State at Philadelphia, only a few days before the annual meeting of Congress, in which the President remarks that he had entirely forgotten that Congress was to meet so soon and requests his subordinate to prepare the material for his annual message. How joy fully and speedily the present Congress would impeach President Grant if he were guilty of a like apparent neglect of duty.— Hartford Courant. • We believe tbe tecord and the principles ot James G, Blaine to be as pure and as tar above reproach as Mr. Bristow’s; we believe him to be a most finished, practical states man, thoroughly schooled by the great teach er experience, in the knowledge that Is most necessary to a President, and we believe him to be a mau of such masterly ability, devel oped in just the ways and channels leading most directly up to the presidential office, and of such wide repute and almost universal popularity that be stands lorth a representa tive man of his country, and a man most nlting to be placed by the suffrages of the American people in the representative office of the nation.—St, Albans Advertiser, General Conference M. E. Church. Baltimore May 5,1876. To the Editor of the Press : This religious body, which holds a session once in four years, assembled in this city on Monday last. It consists of twelve bishops, three missionary secretaries, two general agents of the cburch extension society, one agent of tbe Freedmans aid society, and two hundred and twenty-three delegates from among the clergy, and 133 lay delegates. This body represents 80 annual conferences, from every Slate in the Union,—and confer ences in Germany and Switzerland, India, and Liberia from abroad. In these conferences there are in tbe aggre gate 1,642,456 church members. 19,287 Sunday Schools, 207.182 teachers and officers, and 1,. 406,108 scholars. During the last four years, there has been an increase of 1732 schools, 13, 203 officers and teachers, and 138,456 scholars. During the same time there has been admit ted to the cburoh 231,610 Dew members and tbe net increase—after deducting toe deaths etc., has been 160,460—and of ministers 1224 — mv .. mv>v wuiuuct vi vuuivucs itpurieu in 1875, were 15,038, aud their estimated value $71,350,234. There were during the last four years 1,193 new churches erected, and their es timated value 314,444.334. During the same period there were 708 new parsonages erected, of the value of 81,944,824, and the whole number of parsonages owned by the church as reported in 1875, was 5,017, of the value 89,731,028. These figures, which are officially reported ia the quadrennial address of the bishops, give some idea of the extent, and influence of this great and powerful church.- As might be rea sonably expected, this general conference em bodies a large amount of ability, and learuing. A glance at the catalogue of delegates, will show no less than nineteen presidents of col leges, and a large number of the most distin guished Divines in the country. Among the laymen belonging to the conference are gover nors and ex-governors of states, members and ex-members of both houses in Congress, with a large sprinkling of distinguished men from the legal profession, from the different par s of the country. Prominent among these are Judges Reynolds, of Maw York; Cooley, of Iowa; Lawrence, of Ohio; Shinkle, ot Kentucky; White, of Pennsylva nia; Hammond, of Illinois; and Walker, of Texas. Among the distinguished visitors are Rev. Drs. Riggs and Pope, from the Wesleyan Church in England; Bishop Carman and Drs. Loundsbeny and Williams, of the M. E. Church, Canada; Rev. Drs. Pierce, Magreder, Duncan Hargrave, Garland anu Myers, from the M. E. Church South; Rev. Dr. Patten, from the Presbyterian Church, and Revds. Scott, Jordan, pettier and Pierrepont, of the Methodist President Church But little business bas been done as yet. ex cept the raising and organizing of the several standing committees. Reports will begin to come in the first of next week. A large num ber of memorials, resolutions and propos M. amendments to the ecclesiastical laws of the church have been alreidy referred. In presid ing tbe bishops alternate, and arrange the matter between themselves. In presiding over this large body it requires nearly as macn par liamentary skill and ability as is required in tbe Speaker’s chair at Washington. Bishops SimpBon and Harris have already exhibited large executive ability in this direction. The sessions of the conference are held in tbe Academy of Music, one of the most splen did audience rooms in tbe whole country. There are 47 Methodist churches in Baltimore, and tbe proverbial hospitality of the Monu mental City was never more clearly demon strated than in the generous free entertain ment given tbe members and visitors attend ing this conference.

Ad immense chandelier, 24 feet iu length, haring a spread of 14 feet, and neighing 4000 pounds, has been hung in tbe Art Gallery.

Tbe last mauuscrlpts of Voltaire hare fallen into tbe appreciatire hands of Arseue Hous saye, wto samoles them for the Tribune. The thoughts are skeptical, cyuical, shrewd,—here is one that, iu his day, stung: ‘‘Inscription for a print representing beggars: ‘Rax fecit.’” And here is the essence of Voltaire: “We must have a religion without believing in priests' just as we must observe a regimen; without be - lieviog iu physicians.” A Missouri negro who bad pleaded guilty to murder iu tbe second degree, was recautly sen tenced to imprisonment for 9J years. The rea son for this was that uuder the laws ol that state a man sentenced to imprisonment for life may claim aDd get his discharge at tbe end of fifteen years, which w is what the court wan ed to prevent. Still, under the three fourths lule, good behavior will reduce the 90 years to 74, and if the family isof Gen.

It is believed that the bodies of Capt. Jack and the other Indians hanged with him were brought East aud em. balmed,aud that they will soou be found in possession of a showman.
