Vegetine will eradicate from tbe system every taint of Scrofula or Scrofulous Humor. It baa per manently cured thousands in Boston and vicinity who had been long and painful sufferers. Cancer, Cancerous Humor. The marvellous effect of Vegetine in case of Can cer and Cancerous Humor challenges the most pro found attention of the medical faculty, many of whom are prescribing Vegetine 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 in the cure of this class of diseases. Pain in the Bones. In this complaint the Vegetine is the great rem edy, as it removes from tbe system the producing cause. Salt Rheum. Tetter, Salt Rheum, Scald Head, &c„ will certain ly yield to the great alterative effects of Vegetine. Erysipelas. Vegetine has never failed to cure tlie most in veterate case of Ery6ij>elas. Pimples and Humors of the Face. Reason should teach us that a blotchy, rough or pimpled skin depends entirely upon an internal cause* and no outward application can ever cure the defect. Vegetine is the great blood purifier. Tumors, Ulcers or Old Sores Are caused by an impure state of the blood. Cleanse, tbe blood thoroughly with Vegetine, and these complaints will disappear. Catarrh. For this complaint the only substantial benefit can be obtained through the blood. Vegetine is tbe great blood purifier. Constipation. Vegetine does not act as a cathartic io debilitate the bowels, but cleanses all tbe organs, enabling each to perform tbe functions devolving upon them. Piles. Vegetine has restored thousands to health who have been long and painful sufferers. Dyspepsia. if Vegetine is taken regularly, according to di rections, a certain and speedy cure will follow its use. Faintness at the Stomach. Vegetine is not a stimulating bitters which cre ates a fictitious appetite, but a gentle tonic, which assists nature to restore the stomach to a healthy ac tion. Female Weakness. Vegetine acts directly upon the causes of these complaints. It invigorates and strengthens the whole system, acts upon the secretive organs and allays in flammation. General Debility. In this complaint the good eflects of the Vegetine are realized immediately after commencing to take it; as debility deuotes deficiency of the blood, a d Vegetine acta directly ui>on the blood. Vegetine is Sold by All Druggists. mylt dlwt Fireproof Roofing Paint.

The Democratic Nomination. The drift of sentiment in the Democratic party in the East and South is uumistakably toward Senator Bayard of Delaware. This is plainly indicated by the change cf tone in the New York party journals, and by the outspoken declarations for Mr. Bayard in the Southern papers. In the West on the con trary the drift is toward Governor Hendricks The Ohio Democracy are scarcely in earnest in thejr advocacy of Governor Allen, no one believes that he has the shadow of a chance for the nomination, and they are well con tent with the position Hendricks holds on the currency question. He is a good enough soft-money man for them, and he ia so cau tious in his utterances that the hard-money Democrats of theWest can vote for him with out an absolute surrender of their self-respect. It is to he remarked in passing that the self respect of a hard-money Democrat is very easily satisfied. In Illinois there is a move ment for Judge Davis, and certain Washing ton politicians tavor him. His chief recom mendation seems to be that he ha3 ingratia ted himself with the leaders of all the cheap movements, greenback, labor reform, etc., which have sprung up in the West. Still, i/vmuviuiiv ‘vi i j aa m uuuii, jCUtt tor Bayard is the favorite. Yet he will not be nominated. There are several reasons why he is not available. To start with he is too honest a man for the Democratic politicians to easily use* Again, he D a representative of the old school, strict aonstruction, State rights slavery defending Democracy, and could hope to secure none of the independent vote. Then his locality is against him. Delaware has nlways been classed as a Southern state, and the people are not yet prepared to elect a Southern Democrat to the Presidency. Last ly, he has no control of party machinery out side of his own state, and will have little prospect in a contest with the adroit manipu lators who control conventions and who are determined upon selecting a more available man. Those who have a personal prefer ence for him will for these reasons forego that preference and favor, the majority of them, the nomination of Governor Tilden. Governor Tilden is believed by many Dem ocrats, even those who dislike and distrust him, to be the most available candidate in the party. His attack on the canal ring has giv en him a certain standing which will attract some of the independent votes. His adroit ness and political shrewdness have apparent ly gained him control of New York, and the electoral vote of that State is believed to be necessary to Democratic success. His record and views will command for him the undi vided support of the extremists of the South. His tactical abilities will be useful in organ izing victory, and his enormous wealth can be freely drawn upon to swell the corruption fund during the campaign. His hard-money views commend him to the East, and his friends hope that the Western Democrats can be reconciled by the insertion of an ambiguous plank in the platform or by a resort to the cowardly expedient of 1872, the remanding of the question to the Congressional dis tricts. The contest at present appearances will be between Hendricks and Tilden. The Demo crats will either nominate the Indiana man, throw away New York, and attempt to car ry the West with the cry of more money, or they will nominate the New York man, make a minor issue of the currency question, and go in to the campaign with their favorite watchwords “economy” and “reform.” The contest in the national convention is likely to be a bitter one. The “hards” will argue agumau me cuiuiuiuai ui me party to a declaration in favor of national dishonesty, an argument which will have wonderful lit tle effect upon the men of the West. The “softs” will point out the absurdity of the Democratic cry of reform in face of the Democratic selection of Barnum to sit in judgment on the corruption of Belknap, and will with great plausibility insist that the people are not to be deceived by so absurd a pretence. The fight will be “mighty inter estin’ ” for a time, but will result in some sort of a compromise and a grand rush for the control of the federal offices. A fur ther result, let us hope, will be the election of the Republican candidate by a great ma jority. The general impression in political circles is that Mr. Pierrepont was made Minister to England and Don Cameron Secretary of War to improve the chances of Senator Conkliug in the Cincinnati Convention. Senator Cam eron has been most anxious to get his son in to the Cabinet, and prominent Pennsylvania Republicans assert that that gentleman has been ready to turn over the Republican dele gation from that state to whatever prominent candidate would promise to make Don a member of his Cabinet. That Senator Conk ling is the President’s preference for the Re publican candidate there can be little doubt, but it is very doubtful If this very remarkable action of the Executive will promote the in terests of the New York senator. It may also be proper to remark that prominent Pennsylvanians assert openly that Senator Cameron cannot deliver the goods. To-day is noticeable for its number of con ventions. Nine stales choose delegates to national conventions. The Spencer wing of the Alabama Republicans, who are bolters from the regular organization, meet at Mont gomery; the California Democrats meet in San Francisco; the Illinois Republicans at Spricgfield, the Kansas Republicans at Tope ka, the Michigan Democrats at Lansing, the Minnesota Republicans at St. Paul, the Mis souri Republicans at Jefferson City, the New Hampshire Republicans at Concord, and the Colorado Democrats at ruebio. To-morrow the Kentucky Democrats meet at Louisville. The Portsmouth Chronicle says: Hon. Eugene Hale, member of Congress from Maine, has been credited witb being in favor of abol ishing tbe Kittery navy yard, and with baring ac tively supported moves made in that direction in the House committee on appropriations, of which Mr. Hale is a member. We have never credited this story, and are pleased to be able now to state, on un questionable authority, that Mr. Hale has earnestly opposed any measures looking to the abolition of this yard, and that to his efforts in committee Is It in Sreat measure due that the appropriation committee eclded to report in favor of its being retained as a rull navy yard. It is matter of surprise that anybody could have credited a report that Mr. Hale had been inimical to a navy yard in his own State. His position on the naval committee and his aptitude for practical and vigorous debate have made him specially influential in naval affairs and there can be no doubt of bis efficiency in securing.the continuance of the Navy Yard at Kittery against assaults from other quarters. Refobmeb Randall played the part of economist with remarkable zeal until it came to the matter of abolishing the Philadelphia navy yard. Then he faltered and urged the retention of that naval station. It is true that Mr. Randall did not mount the high horse, as did Mr. Banks when he appealed for the Charlestown navy yard because it was under the shadow of Bunker Hill. He sim ply said it was a good thing for Philadelphia to have, just as other Democratic economists declared that largo appropriations to clear out obstructions in little rivers used only for fish ing boats were wanted by their Iriends and constituents. wwvws* avaujr IU auui lUdl ceiiieu nial safe which is to be closed for a hundred years. A Democratic “reformer” ought to be numbered among the curieus products of this curious age enclosed in its vaults. When the fairy burglar kisses its lock with a skele ton key a century hence he will be duly amazed at the straDge things revealed to his gaze. On second thought it would be well to lock up the whole batch of Democratic “re formers.” The country has no pressing need of them. Mr. Hale’s discomfiture of Mr. Banning in the spirited debate in the House Monday on the naval bill was greatly enjoyed on the Republican side of the House. It was com plete, and the Ohio member felt his defeat keenly. Mr, Barnum of Connecticut has taken his seat in the Senate, and will serve as a judge in the case of Belknap accused of cor ruption. The spectacle is not an edifying one. Political Sews. Fernando Wood thinks that Judge Davis and not Gov. Tilden is the man for the Dem ocrats. In a square fi^t Thurman’s faction would not have obtained half the votes it did by its adroit management. Ex-Senator Doolittle of Wisconsin expects that Gen. Sherman will get into the Cincin nati Convention in some manner, and get away with the nomination. A correspondent of the New York Times in Indiana says that Senator Morton’s friends actually think that he has a “sight” for the Cincinnati uomlnation. The Chicago Tribune goes in for Bristow and Blaine. It thinks that the first notes of the real struggle at Cincinnati will be sounded after the first or second ballot, when the several delegations shall have paid their expected compliments to the “favorite sods.” It calculates that Blaine will get the Penn sylvanians, and Bristow the New Yorkers and Indianians in the main. The New York Sun denies the rumor that the friends of Senator Conkliog have sub scribed $60,000 worth of stock for the pur pose of starting a new daily in New York, to be run in the interests of the Senator and edited by Louis J. Jennings. It adds that, wun me oun ana uerala circulating every day 200,000 copies or more to advocate his nomination, he has no need ot new enter prises. The Democratic candidates for supreme Court judges in Indiana are too literary. Under the head ot stationery and supplies they have charged the State for hair mat tresses, costly hearth-rugs, washing thirty dozen pieces per week, Russia leather satch els, and have otherwise shown themselves to be the usual type of Democratic reformers. Aud yet the Indiana people don’t like it. Thete is even a fierce demand from some of the Democratic papers for the immediate re moval of these judges from the ticket. Current Notes. We tender our thanks to the Vermont judge, who, the other day, in pronouncing upon a divorce suit, laid down the opinion that, when a woman marries a man of known intemperate habits, she takes her happiness, prosperity and wellare in her own hands, and has no claim for jiddance of him hereafter.— Boston Congregationalism Mr. Tilden never raised bis voice against the Tweed ring atrocities so long as there was any safety in allowing them to continue. On the contrary, as chairman ot the state exe cutive committee of his party in 1868, when the counting of the votes in the lower wards of the city was purposely delayed until far into the night, he personally notified Mr. Tweed hew many democratic voles were needed from those wards to make the State secure.—Boston Globe. The inflationists understood that when they “presented the name of William Allen as the choice of Ohio for the presidency,” they secured a representative of no doubtful character, and one whom the resumptionists could not in any wise claim. Therefore, the demagogic uncle, with his rant about “rob bing debtors” by “a money oligarchy” car ried the day over the demagogic nephew with his milder cant about “further embarrassing the debtor class.” Between the two, the country can judge to what a low stage the Democrats of one of the largest states of the Union have fallen.—AT. Y. Times. The more they investigate Mr. Blaine, the more free his record becomes from any stain, and with each effort to besmirch him dis proved, his chances for the nomination at Cincinnati grow better. Here in Pennsylva nia the feeling in his favor is growing so strong that after Gov. Hartranft’s name is withdrawn the delegation will be largely in his favor. If the opinions of the people were taken as their guide, the delegates would be almost unanimously so. No man in the Re publican party could poll so large a popular vote in Pennsylvania as Mr. Blaine can, and we believe will.— Philadelphia North Ameri can. Barnum, who has held without occupying a seat in the House of Representatives far soma years, was elected on yesterday to fill the vacancy iu the Senate caused by the .1 n xi.. ta.-,_ if __i: i—l_ t__t__ aoy difference whether Connecticut is repre sented in the Senate or not, a new election should now be held to fill the vacancy which will be caused by the choice of Barnum. The new senator’s private business is so extensive that be has no time to spare for anything else, and there is apparently no expectation that he will make more than the barest pre tense of discharging his new duties.—Chica go Times. (Ini.) We warn all concerned that this Allen party is not to be held despicable on account of its weakness. It is a formidable party, representing great schemes and extensive interests, and it is officered by men who have no scruples and few fears, and whose daring designs are executed with no mean ability. They propose to rule for their purposes the Democratic party, and they will attack the national convention with the same confidence and rude energy with which they stormed the state convention of yesterday-—Cincin nati Commercial. Some of the amiable gentlemen, heads of colleges and church institutions, who sat pla cidly in the Fifth Avenue conference while Charles Francis Adams Jr., was mooning in praises of Samuel J. Tildeu, must have woke up since the session ended with a start, and wonder whether this was what they came down to do. It will not be pleasant for a large share of these men to remember, as they must, how exactly the portraiture of their own address to the people fits Samuel J. Tilden himself, as a man who stood by ( when the worst corruptions of this age were , bciug accomplished, who himself profited by Lhem, who made his personal fortune bv be ng the inspirer and attorney of the greatest frauds and swindles Wall street bss ever in0W“Kan.du,oriSlnated; *ho has himself through°ut his life been the apostle ot grab and the chief among spoilsmen—Brooklyn L non. 9 The hardest blow Charles Francis Adams has received is from the Springfield Republi can, strange to say, which speaks of him in the same breath with David Davis, as one of the four men for whom genuine reformer* might unite! What can be the matter? Has the Republican forgotten the train loads of noisy strikers hired to go down from Illi nois in 1872, and to shout for Davis at Cin cinnati ? Has it never found out why the greenback and labor reform conventions gravitate toward Davis as huDgry cattle gather round a hay-stack? Mr, Davis is one of those politicians whom Independents will not support under any conceivable circum stances. To class him and Charles Francis Adams together would be for anybody a most extraordinary achievement In political blun dering.

Jo the Editor of the Press: Thursday it rained in Germantown. It had gotten to be a confirmed habit, I believe, every where, this stormy weather. The morning broke so dull and cloudy that enthusiasm was dampened. Nobody thought of Fairmouut Park with any pleasure, and it was natural enough. Our very flags, so gay in sunshine and breeze, had a limp, dejectel appearance, from these repeated dismal days, that all their red, white and blue could not vivify. But one heart was faithful yet, to speak a la Barbara Frietchie. I pitied the stay-at-home inclined family and started for the grounds by myself. Everything was fresh and fair along German town lanes, and I plucked a few large violets with leaves, growing wild by the way, and tucked them into tbe buttonhole of my coat thinking bow pretty their petals were twink-’ 1-Qg with dew, and how muoh less was due on them than the boutooniers at the Exposition for which they charge fifty cents; a mingling in my mind of economy and sentiment. It re minded me of a little incident in tbe big build ing where I saw, a day or two ago, a burly, jovial-looking sailor, young man buying at this same price, a rose-bud and a bit of heliotrope for bis mother. She was a little, old woman in black bombazine—the name gentlemen al ways give to a black dress ot any material, you know, but this time, really black bombazine,— with a wrinkled face and hid fashioned man ners. And she did seem so pleased and happy when he affectionately gave them to her. In stead of presenting them to some flaunting girl, who would not have cared tor the potey. As the train approached to the grounds I caught myself smiling with pleasure at the sight of tbe roofs of tbe buildings, already grown familiar—the statue on Memorial Hall, the flags and towers of tbe main building. I have enjoyed so much at the City Centennial—^ for the park now is a city in itself—I shall not like to say good bye. I first directed my steps to the main hall and spent half an hour listening to Gilmore. Near by a lot of people gathered round a display of toys propelled by machinery—they were watch ing eagerly, among all tbe wonders, “pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw." New ex hibits had accumulated here, as they do all the time. I proceeded to machinery hall, where I stopped at a printing press and asked if I might buy a sheet of proof paper, to write a letter bye and bye. It was given to me and then I purchased a copy of tbe New York Her aid. Xbey bad been giving them away, the past week, ad libitum, aa also the New York Times. I do not know of any other papers but, with the Herald, tbe boy told me tbe orders to day were to sell at five cents. At the “Trois Freres Provenceaux,” the French restaurant, I paused, Jo get a cup of chocolate and some rolls. Tbe waiters were fine iu broadcloth and embroidered shirt fronts, not even their long aprons concealing their ex quisite toilets. I did not find them so super polite, though I looked for rather more—as at the Vienna Cafe. At last I reached the wo men’s department, to which I meant to devote the day in investigating. The building is not as handsome as some of the others outside, to my taste, but tbe interior is lovely; decorated in blue that gives a bright, cheerful air. ft stands on tbe east side of the Belmont Ave nue, north of Fountain Avenue and covers an area of 30 000 square feet. Before we criticise let us consider what tbe women have done. They have given >30,000 to this their building and 805,000 to the Exposition. They psid for tbe music on the opening day and as it was a local celebration, tbe ceremo nies of the opening, they paid for it ont of the local fund. That is, money raised by them in Peonsjlvauia and Philadelphia. To Wagner they paid S5G50, selling the copyright of his march for 81500, tbe return to be five cents on a copy. Tbe amount of brain and body work that our women have put inio this is not to be estimated, and all honor is due Mrs. Gillespie and her faithful and efficient aids throughout tbe states. Let us try to get an idea of tbe contents of their departmeut at tbe Exposition, it has been objected that there are too many inferior articles here, for instance in tbe “Art” collec tion thee is much that is below the average even. What sort o^ pictures are these, with wbich Miss Hosme (whose marbles are not yet there) and Rosa Bonheur will place their masterpieces? All these productions of our schools and youthful artists that we see here are well enough, but we want “tbe highest type of women’s work.” They said so themselves, tbe committee, and beginnings, however good, are out of place. All through the other ex hibits you may say the same, they are not all choice. But certain things must be taken into account. In th9 first place, tbe various otber states accepted many things before they came here. Then, people were to backward iu send ing that tbe committees really feared there would be nothing to show, and so were driven to taking, in some instances, what they could get. Among the visitois this special morning I noticed Prof. Lopgfellow. In the center of the hall is a fountain sur rounded with plants and flowers. At the right of the entrance is an array of Japanese work. Fans, screens, remarkable achievements in crepe; blossoms, birds, among other things, a cock, ben and cbicks, all of that material, and a variety of lacquer-wood work. Just here we see the Lord’s Supper, after Da Vinci, done in worsted, chenille and floss, all with tbe needle. It is quite wonderful for the expression of the faces is pieserved. It is as attractive as a lumg oi luiu son ever is—last seems sacn a wholesale waste of time for the fingers that toil over it—seems so to me at least. There are articles of Swedish manufacture, more of those characteristic groups of life-size figures. One represents a young Swedish maiden, telling the daisy love—“loves me, loves me not,” while a youth, silently inter ested, stands near. Beyond hangs a banner of white silk, embroidered in colors with the arms of New York State. It is 12(twelve) by 10 (ten) feet and valued at $5000. Presented by women of New York, and the work of women, of course, Among the great quantity of oddi ties are fish scale jewelry at $50 a set. A tip pet and mutf made of the silk of the milk weed. A whistle actually made of the tail of a pig. It is sent from one of the great pork es tablishments at Chicago. These lines are printed: ‘There’s a proverb as ancient os Scotland's famed thistle That out of a “Pig’s Tail” you can’t make a whistle We believe we’ve accomplished that wonderful thing, r \ai all who may wish to, may make this tail sing.” In one case are two dolls dressed by a Moor sh princess, one iD the Jewish costume, the >ther native. And, also Moorish, a cap, jacket, iboes, geld handkerchief for the hair, and a ’Shashia,” that is a “fez,” elegantly wrought n sil*, velvet and gold. Here, too, is an Sgyptian “prayer carpet” and cloth with the irayer itself worked in gold. There is another iunoua thing. A screen, five or six feet high, d wood painted black.
