Vegetine will eradicate from ibo system every taint of Scrofula or Scrofulous Humor. It has per manently cured thousands in Boston and vicinity who had been long and painful sufferers. Cancer, Cancerous Humor. The marvellous effect of Veoetine in ease of Can cer and Cancerous Humor challenges ihe most pro found attention of the medical faculty, many of whom are prescribing Veoetine to their patients. Canker. Vegetine has never failed to cure the most inflex ible case of Canker. Mercurial Diseases. The Vegetine meets with wonderful success iu the cure of this class of diseases. Pain in the Bones. In this complaint the Veoetine is the great rem edy, as it removes from the system the producing cause. Salt Rheum.

Vegetine has never failed to cure the most in VPtprfltA rasA rtf Ervainpl'ia Pimples and Humors of tlio Face.

Yesterday the formal opening of the cen tennial exhibition took place, and if we can judge anything by the language of the re ports the great show is not only not a disap pointment but is a credit to American in dustry and enterprise and a worthy com memoration of the hundredth year of our national existence. As yet the exhibition is not at its best. There is still much bustle of preparation, the several departments are in some confusion, the exhibitors are behind, hand, and many of the goods are in the pack ing-cases. But to day the display is one of which Americans have no reason to be ashamed, and the preparations are consider ably more advanced then on the opening days of any other of the international ex hibitions. In a brief time everything will be complete, and a month hence the World’s Fair will be in its glory. From the start the promoters of the exhi bition have had a difficult task. They have encountered skepticism and indifference from all quarters, they have been crippled for want of funds, and forced to make their ap peals to the government and the public in a time of great business and" financial depres sion. But they have bravely surmounted all obstacles, showing great energy, enterprise and executive ability in bringing the exhibi tion to its present prosperous estate. To General J. R. Hawley more than to any oth er single man is due the credit of success, though he has received valuable and indis pensable aid from his coadjutors. Though it is too soon to speak of tho cen tennial exhibition as an unqualified success it has developed sufficiently to permit the reasonable indulgence of high hopes as to its merit and issue. IJnless ail indications are misleading it will be no unworthy rival of the great exhibitions which have preceded it. A year ago the Democracy were promis ing all manner of reforms to be achieved by a Democratic House. To-day little of account has been done. The grand result of Demo cratic efforts is well summed up by the Bos ton Advertiser as follows: Democrats can have their war dance over the captured scalps of Babcock and Mrs. Belknap without exciting either admiration or confi dence. When tbe voter next fall aaks what the Democratic majority in the House have done to maintain tbe equal rights of citizens under the constitution, to Dring about tbe re sumption of specie payment at tbe date fixed by law, and to reform the civil service, Mr. Ciymer will answer that he found out that Mrs. Belknap had obtained • post-tradership for a friend, and received a consideration for her services; Mr. Blackburn# will say that he made an impertinent inquiry of the President and was crushed by the answer: Mr. Cox will say that he called Mr. Blaine a hyena on the floor, and insulted Mr. Garfield from tbe chair; Mr. Randall will say be turned ont the Uniou sol diers and experienced clerks who served the house of representatives, and filled their places with men so bad that we had to dismiss many of them in disgrace before the session was bait through; Mr. Holman will say that be did what be could to get the resumption act re pealed, but the Republicans prevented him; Mr. Morrison will say that he busied himself in trying to get his committee to report an im practicable tariff bill; Mr. Hill will say that Mr. Blaine worried him so that he had to give his whole mind to tbe business of holding his longue; Speaker Kerr will say that the particu lar Democrats in this Congress were too poor a lot to do anything with, and made him too ill to remain in the chair. And sa they will go on boasting of trifles or complaining of fate, but the plain voter who seeks to find out what they did for the country, will not be able to Ke* a satisfactory answer, and will take good care UOt LO Do Uiawu Into that orowd. Accounts from Arkansas say that terror ism prevails in that State as well as in Missis sippi. So long as the negro abstains from voting he is not ill-treated, but he is dis tinctly told that he must cease the exercise of the franchise or be butchered, and the threat is carried into execution whenever necessa ry. This promises a fine state of affairs should tbe Democrats win a national victory. TnE Brooklyn police are hunting up a vigi lance committee formed in that city to pun ish burglars and murderers. They will do luite as well to devote a little more attention to the criminals, and so render a vigilance sommittce unnecessary. Political News. Democratic papers in Wisconsin think it very “mean” to investigate ex-Gov. Taylor’s use of the contingent fund. Congressman Barnum is so anxious for tha1 Connecticut Senatorial nomination that he is reported as saying sweet words to the infla tionists, accompanying them with sly winks implying that they may not be so far wrong in their views after all. Judge Black must wonder, when he reads Ihe praises showered upon him as a man and a Democrat, since his withdrawal as a Prdsi lenlial candidate, why some of the flattering editors did not think to say as much while he was in the field. An interesting suit is in progress in India na, one party suing to recover $500 which he lent to a Democrat who was contesting a seat in the state senate, who used the money to purchase the one vote necessary to secure the seat, and was then unable to pay the loan. Speaking of the Democrats, ex-Senator Brownlow says: “Lacking virtue themselves they hope to attain power by pulling others down. But even should they prove some Re publicans unworthy, it will not prove that Democrats, covered all over with corruption, are worthy to step into the places they once held, abused, and treasonably abandoned.” The Athens, Ga., Watchman, says of Uie coming senatorial election: “Our present object is merely to remark that if Senator Norwood declines a re-election, or it shall be thought advisable by the party to put some one else in his place, that Ben Hill stands a full head and shoulders taller than any other man named as his successor. The ‘ring’ may succeed in displacing Mr. Norwood, but the people will not permit it to put an inferior man in his place.” About Women. Friends of Grace Greenwood say that she will soon institute proceedings for a divorce from1 her worthless husband. The election of womon to office meets with favor in England as well as here, and Miss Merrington, the first of her sex elected as guar dian of the poor in any district in Loudon, has been re-chosen for the parish of Kensington by a vote of 5397. Mrs. Christiaucy, according to a Washington correspondent, is “a petite little woman, pretty as a picture, with a pug nose and pretty red hair, of the mild type, with a sombre-looking hat pulled down tightly over it to give her the maternal look of a matron of forty years It is a signal failure. Jennie Marshall, a servant girl of Napanee Can., took her newly-married husbaud horn, to England and introduced him to a fortano of 81,000,000 which had been left her by a rela tive. She had run away from home some time before, to escape a marriage her friends tried to force upon her. Mrs. Mary A Ford, “Uua’’ the well kuown Irish-Americao poetess is daad. She was held in very high estimation by the Irisb-American and Catholic press of the country. Her Wash ington’s Farewell to his army,” “A Uundred Years from Now,’ “The Green and Gold”, the “Men of Ratli,” and “God Pity the Poor,” are, according to the Irish World, esteemed among the finest things in the English language. Mile, de Belocca, tbe new Banian prima donna now in New York, whatever may be tbe opinion of her musical culture, is universally pronounced a beautiful young woman, and as charming in mind as she is in person. She walks regularly every day for several mites. ▲ correspondent says: “She is altogether a good illustration of that enviable combination health, wealth, and wisdom.” Mrs. Dr. RacbeiJCutler Martin, of New York in her lectnre on “Woman’s Power,” re* minds her hearers that Adam brought the onrse on the human family, that Sampson fell at the hands of Woman, that Queen Isabella equip ped Columbus, and Mrs. Richardson saved Washington, and that Qneens are governing nations, editing newspapers and publishing books. There lives in Richmond, Va., says the Whig, a well known lady who sang in the choir there on the occasion of General Lafay ette’s visit. General Lafayette complimented her highly upon her sweet voice, and paid a glowing tribnte to the beanty and fascination of manner of Virginia and Southern ladies In a little note which he subsequently sent her. The note accompanied a bonqnet of flowers* and the lady has both, which, though faded and moth-eaten, she would not part with for tbe world. The Bristol England, Times and Mirror tells the following curious story:—“A somewhat eccentric old lady recently died, leaving a con siderable amount of property, amongst it be ing a very valuable collection of studies from tbe nudes by well-koown artists. A married niece, in tbe house at the time of her death, thought that these were highly improper, and, as soon as the breath was out of her aunt’s body, consigned them to the flames. Imagine her chagrin when, on the will being read. It was found that these very sketches were all that her relative had left to her and her chil dren. They were worth about £8,000. The Crown of Thorns. Mr. Winter telegraphs to the New York Tri bune the following account of Anna Diokin- , son’s debut in "The Crown of Thorns” at the Globe in Boston Monday night. As the ver. diet of perhaps the ablest critic in tbe country it will be read with great interest: If the social welcome be alone considered, her stage advent was successful. If other things be considered it was not. Her play a “Crown of Thorns,” lasted two hours aud for ty-five minutes. It is a thin tissue of level prose dialogue ou the story of Anne Boleyn, iuvolvlug seventeen persons. It is not relieved by stroog dramatic incident. Scenes in “Hen ry VIII." and “Axe and Crown” embody its Bubstauce, and are better. It is a tedious piece done on tbe Gteeommeti model, made known here by Ristori. Its scenes come over like the paddle-wheels of a steamboat, and are cut off at tbe caprice of tbe man at tbe wheel. Halt depicts Anne Boleyn cheated of her lover, and goaded into resentment by Wolsey. Tbe other depicts her ruin at tbe hands of Cromwell. The language lacks elevation. Most of the charac ters ask political conundrums. The impression left is that Henry tbe Eighth’s reign was pop ulous with bores, aud his fondness for decapita tion has good grounds. The last scene is taken from Tom Taylor’s play introduced by Mrs. Rousby. Anne Boleyn is the whole piece, and the ether parts are feeders, Miss Dickinson went through it with masculine force. At point* where she coaid lecture she was effective. She showed dramatio instinct—some idea of execution and much will. In art she was cal low. Her presence as a Qneen was pnoy. Her voioe was often nasal and thin. Her walk woe one-sided. Her attitudes were mostly crouched. Her emotion was that of the mind and not the head. She does not burn, bnt she glint*. The face was otten set in a stare to emphasize a tigerish disposition. Great stress was laid on an apostrophe to Jane Seymour and an expos tulation with Lord Percy. They sounded like wails from Martha’s Vioevard with the breth ren in full possession. Had Miss Dickinson adopted the stage in youth she might have be come a fair actress. It is not easy to see how she could ever have become an agreeable one. Her performance was a potent exhibition of personal character, but it lacked the attributes that charm. Her hearers were friendly and patient, and wore tbeir crown of thorns like good Bostonian stoics. Should Miss Diccinson keep on in this new pathway which she has chosen, in despite of hsr lack of essential qualifications and against her too evidently didactic grain, she will very likely have to Wear it herself. Mistakes are uot tbe less mistakes because they are made with talent and vigor; and we see no reason to encourage the idea that Miss Dicken son is an actress because she dresses herself in four gorgeous robes aud goes into an ecstacy of elocution._ A. V. Cropsey a farmer near Fort Hamilton, L. I.,was captured Monday with an illicit whU key still of large capacity. Several thousand barrels of mass were run into a frog pond and his farm of twelve acres was seized by revenue officials for crooked whiskey business. STATE NEWS.
