NEW YORK. ■•wen and Beecher— Exciting Scene* at the Plymouth Church Meeting. New York, May 11.—It appears that at Plymouth church last night in reply to the as sertion of Mr. Shearman that Bowen had re fused to go before Mr. Pratt and Mr. Beecher, that Dr. Ward stated that Bowen bad told Pratt all the facta and Pratt{had refused |to re Ejrt them to Mr. Beecher, consequently Bowen ad lost confidence in Pratt, but was now how ever, willing to meet Mr. Beecher and Mr. Pratt, in the presence of Mr. Moulton. After great confusion Mr. Shear man moved that Mr. Bowen retire with Mr. Beecher and Mr. Healey, but Bowen refused, adhering to Mr. Ward’s) proposition to re tire with Messrs. Beecher, Pratt and Monlton. Mr. Beecher took the floor, when he was in terrupted by Ciarence Bowen, who proposed that Mr. Beecher and his father retire together, the latter ‘to tell Mr. Beecher all tbe bottom facts and Mr. Beecher then to return and re port them to the 'meeting. This was received with hisses and cries, and Mr. Shearman’s mo tion was then carried. Mr. Bowen however, insisted on declining to retire with those par ties. Several propositions were then made to Bowen by Mr. Raymond, all of which he de clined, saying in tbe course of his remarks, that he did, not believe his worst enemy could consider him capable of circulating a scheme for tbe destruction of Mr. Beecher. Mr. Beecher repeated the assertion jthat all the conferences bad been on business, when Bowen asked, “did not tbe interview at Free, lands turn upon anything but business?’’ Mr. Beecher said: “No, sir;”.to which Bowen replied: “I say It did ’’ Much confusion was caused by this remark, many members rising out of their seats and starting forward. Order was restored and sev eral propositions were made to Bowen, (but be declined all of them. After a great deal of talking Mr. Beecher came forward and said: “I am charged with a heinous crime;” but before he could finish his sentence he was interrupted by Dr. Ward, who said—“And are guilty of it.” And immediate ly several members sprang to their feet and at tempted to reach Dr. Ward. Cries of “Shame on you,” “Put him out,” were heard all over the room. Deacon Howard at once moved that Dr. Ward be called upon to retract the words he bad spoken or be requested to leave. His motion was carried, and Dr. Ward alter stating that he was unwilling to withdraw his asser tion, retired. As he was leaving several arose, and many prominent members hurled after him tbe words “Get out,” “Get out,” "Shame on you.” After Dr. Ward had retired, Mr. Beecher continued bis remarks, and was answered in re turn by Bowen. Tbe resolution to expel Bow en was at last, after a great deal of disorder and confusion, tabled on motion of 8. V. White. R. W. Raymond moved that Dr. Ward be not allowed to act further as couusel for Bowen unless be would retract in writing tbe insult which he had offered to the church, which was carried. Mr. Bowen said if Dr. Ward was not allowed to continue as his counsel he would require more than one week’s time to prepare his de fence, as he would be compelled to do it him self. On motion of Mr. Raymond the offer of Bow en to meet Mr. Beecher and Rev. Dr. William M. Taylor, and tell all he knows concerning Mr. Beecher, was accepted with the understanding that Mr. Taylor be pledged to secrecy, which understanding was accepted by the church only because that was tbe only ground upon which Bowen would accept the proposition. The meeting then adjourned to the 25th inst. Attempted Wife Murder. James McLanghlin, a shoemaker residing on Atlantic street, Brooklyn, while intoxicated last night, knocked down his wife, who bad in her arms her baby three months old.

Trinity college of Dublin will send a crew to Saratoga. CERA. Liability of Foreigners to Exlrnordiunry Contribution*. Havana, May 11.—A decree lias been issued declaring that claims made by foreigners resid ing in the IslaDd and by some of their consuls to exemption from extraordinary contributions are founded in error. All foreigners under the protection of the government must pay like Spanish subjects the taxes levied in ac cordance with articles 33 and 34 of the act re lating to strangers passed by the Cortes in 1870. Tbe contributions imposed in this Island cau Dot be said to be for war. The pursuit and pnnisbmeut of incendiaries, principally ne groes who have no army in our territorv is not war. The treaties between Spain aDd other countries exempt foreign residents from the confiscation of their vessels, the forced occupa tion of lauded property and personal military dnty, but not from taxes and contributions ren dered necessary for the protection of the prop erty of all against incendiaries and plunderers. Therefore all municipalities must proceed against foreigners who refuse to pav said tax es. This decree is understood to he principally directed against Germans who claim exemption under the treaty between Germany and Spain ASIA. Xbe Plague.

The same article also takes up the subjects of diagnosis, methods of consultation and treatment, etc., and will be found to contain many valuable hints to the invalid. Dr. Pierce is the author of a work which has already attained a large circulation— “The People’s Common Sense Medical Adviser”— j. containing some nine hundred numerously illuslrat- t ed pages, and devoted to medicine in all its branches, \ a work well calculated for the guidance and instruc- x tion of the people at large, and which may be had for * $1.50 (post-paid) by addressing the author.

We have just received (October. 1875) a communica tion from nearly every druggist in New England, and the testimony is universally in favor of San ford’s Radical Cure for Catarrh. We believe there never was a remedy so popular wherever known, and certainly we feel that never was one more deserving of praise. Founded upon correct scientific principles and calculated by the most ac complished physicians to meet the severest forms of Catarrh, the cures made by it have not only been nu merous, but so remarkable as to excite public atten tion and cao80 the sale to exceed tenfold that of any similar remedy ev6r before compounded. While many are anxious to make public their tes timony in favor of the Radical Cure, others—and among this number may be found many of our most respected citizens—dislike to become publicly identi fied with so loathsome a disease. Hence, in the fol lowing case we are unable to give the name, but arc permitted to state the severity and condition ot the case before and after using the Radical Cure, and also that the gentleman occupies a responsible office in one of our State institutious. We quote :— <4I would not for the world permit my name to be used, although I have no doubt it would be of bene fit to many now suffering as I have suffered; but I give you a brief statement of my case :— “For two years 1 have taken bromide of potaoaa and bromide of ammonia every day. 1 never passed a single night with out getting up once or twice to free my throat from the matter that bad dropped into it during sleep, and finally I coughed daring all this time. Mince taking the RADICAL CURE I have taken no potas sa or ammonia, have slept sonndly every night without uneasiness or distress; no a particle of matter has dropped into niy throat during sleep, and every symptom of a cough has left me.” A wonderful result truly, all will say. who know or can realize the extent and severity of this case. The gentleman has had eighteen bottles. This must sat isfy the sceptical and there is great merit in the Rad ical Cure. Its mode ot preparalion is new and or iginal. Ignoring the old practices and remedies, Dr. Sanford selected a new field, and has demonstrated his method to be the only proper and never failing treatment. The following recommendations are from DRUGGISTS, who arc competent witnesses to the work it is daily doing. Sanford’s Radical Cure has proved the best remedy for relieving Catarrh. W. M. FELLOWS, Haverhill, Mass I am selling large quantities of yonr Sanford’s Radical Cure, Dr. WENTWORTH, Biddeford, Me. Sanford’s Radical Cure is having a good sale. It is just what the people have been wanting. A. M. GERRY, So. Paris, Me. I have kept Sanford’s Radical Cure on hand since its first introduction, and the sale and satisfaction in its use have been unequalled by any other similar preparation within my knowledge. W. H. WILLIS, M. D., Reading, Mass. 1 have sold Sanford’s Radical Cure for a year or more, and it stands the test the best of any similar remedy I have ever sold, WILL H. OWEN, Milo, Me. We recommend no other cure, and have no trouble iu selling it. L. P. EVANS & CO., Garland, Me. Sanford’s Radical Cure has given universal satis faction to all my customers, and above all other rem edies is a success. E. F. CAREY. Haverhill, Mass. Sanford’s Radical Cure sells well, and is very much liked. Mrs. S. P. WING, Sangerville, Me.
