Vegetine will eradicate from tbe system every taint of Scrofula or Scrofulous Humor. It lias per manently cured thousands in Roston 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 tlie most pro found attention of tbe medical faculty, many of whom are prescribing Vegetine to their patients. Canker. Vegetine lias never failed to cure the most inflex ible case of Canker. Mercurial Diseases. The Vegetine meets with wonderful success in tbe cure of this class of diseases. Fain in the Bones. In this complaint the Vegetine is the great rem edy, as it removes from the system the producing cause. Salt Rheum.

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 the 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 the great blood purifier. Constipation. Vegetine docs not act as a cathartic to debilitate the bowels, but cleanses all the organs, enabling each to perform the functions devolving upon them. Piles. . Vegftine has restored thousands to health who have been long and painful sufferers. Dyspepsia. it 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 Ihe causes of these complaints. It invigorates and s^ngthens the whole system, acts upon the secretive organs and allays in flammation. General Debility. in this complaint the good effects of the Vegetine are realized immediately after commencing to take it; as debility denotes deficiency of the blood, a d Vegetine acts directly upon the blood.

The Republicans of Maine and all others who pro pose to support the candidate of the Republican par ty in the pending elections are invited to send dele gates to a State Convention to be held in NOROKBEGA HALL, Bangor, Thursday, June 33, 1870, al II A. M. for the purpose ot nominating a candidate for Gov ernor to be supported at the September election and two candidates for electors of President and attend to such other business as usually comes before such meetings. The basis of representation will be as follows: Each city, town, and plantation is entitled to one del egate and one additional delegate for every seventy five votes given for the Republican candidate for Governor in 1872. A fraction of forty votes over the number which is entitled to one delegate, will be ac corded a delegate. The Republican State Committee will be in session in the ant£-roomj>f the Hall at 9 o’clock the morn ing of the Convention. The usual reduced fares on railroads and steamboats may be expected of which due announcement will be made. JAMES G. BLAINE, Kennebec, Chairman, WILLIAM P. FRYE, Adroscoggin.

Portland, May 4,1876. Mr. Blame. In this matter of the Blaine investigation it is well to look about us a little aud exam ine the facts before we yell ourselves hoarse about jobbery. The public has, as not un frequently before, been led into injustice by the perusal of startling headlines and the reading of comments on evidence instead of the evidence itself. Day after day certain journals who are independent of all decency and sense of fair play have placed “Subsidy Bonds” in staring letters at the head of their telegraphic columns quite regardless of the fact that the Fort Smith bonds are not sub sidy bonds at all, and that no legislation has been had in Congress concerning them in which Mr. Blaine had the slightest interest. Had he dealt in cotton or groceries or real es tate nothing would have been said; but the impression is artfully given that railroad bonds are forbidden property and that the man who deals in them is of necessity a cor ruptionist and a thief. A moment’s reflection will convince any candid man that Mr. Blaine had a perfect right to buy and sell railroad bonds if he chose to do so, and that no blame can possibly attach to him in that regard. The insinuation that the possession of such property influences his legislation is too absurd for serious consideration. It such an idea obtains then the holder of a share of stock in a National bank, nay, the holder of aDy property whatever (lor the value of all property is affected by the state of the cur rency, and upon the currency Congress may legislate) must be debarred from official hon ors, and we shall have to go to the alms houses for our Congressmen. No one is prepared to go so far as that, and yet the only charge brought against Mr. Blaine that has the shadow of proof (for the Mulligan tastimony may be dismissed as irrelevant and valueless) is that he has bought aud sold railroad bonds. What of it ? Price $3.50. Some cf our Democratic contemporaries have made haste to deny the statement that Mr. Tilden’s friends had made arrangements with an advertising firm to secure the publi cation of favorable notices from leadin newspapers in papers in various parts of the country for pay. A few days since a Demo cratic paper in the West to prove that such a proposition had been made to it printed the circular of the well-known advertising firm of Bates & Locke of New York, which is as follows: J. H. BATES. D. R. LOCKE. BATES & LOCKE. Newspaper Advertising Agents, 21 Park Row. New Yoke, May 19, 1876.—Publishers of-. Gentlemen—Please insert the inclosed five notices, taken in order as numbered, once each in your week ly, as quoted reading matter. Do not fail to send us your weekly during the time of the order. Charge our agency $3.50. We inclose postal card. Whether you accept or decline, please mark the contrary word oft and re' turn it at once. The oiler is the only one that can be made, and notices must begin at once, as there is no time for correspondence. Yours truly, Bates & Locke. To the above the “notices” were appended in the usual business manner of advertising agents, and consisted of quotations from va rious newspapers highly laudatory of Gov. Tilden. We regret that the present hard times have caused many Democratic papers to print these “notices” in their reading col umns just as if it was done conscientiously in behalf of Mr. Tilden, instead of for the pal try sum of $3.50, after deducting thirty-three per cent, in commissions. There are papers which object to the hiring of papers to print paid puffs in aid of a Presidential aspirant. There arc those who sneer at the quality of the ‘‘reform” which a candidate represents who allows his friends to tako the same means of presenting his merits to the people as do patent medicine men. True, this method of Mr. Tilden’s supporters is novel, hut have they not the testimony of A. T. Stewart, of P. T. Barnurn, of Dr. Ayer, of the proprietor of that exhilirating tonic known as “Plantation Bitters,” and a hun nthp.r nntnhln ■upppssps rPsnlMnor frnm liberal advertising ? On the other hand the great failure and subsequent sad fate of Dr. Helmbold, the “Bucbu” man, offers an ex ception to the effect that liberal advertising does not always pay. There must be merit in goods put upon the market—a fact the ad vertisers should bear in mind To the newspaper publisher there is some thing commendable in the spirit shown by Mr. Tilden’s henchmen. They evidently dc not wish to “beat” or “deadhead.” They recognize that the newspaper is the property of the man who runs it and although th( sum offered will barely pay for the “composi tion,” the recognition is worth something For this all newspaper proprietors should b< grateful. It must, after all, be admitted that there ii something rather ridiculous in the idea of ; Presidential candidate taking the same mean: to present himself before the country whicl the proprietors of patent medicines take tc bring their goods into notice, especially whei that candidate affects to be the champion o the “higher politics” and reform. Perhap: Mr. Charles Francis Adams Jr., who recently endorsed Gov. Tildeu as the only mau in thi Democratic party worthy of support as i high minded reformer will change his mini because this method of bringing a Presiden tial candidate before the people isn’t alto getherhigh toned. The testimony of several prominent gen eral officers of the army has been uniformly and decidedly in favor of retaining colored troops as a portion of the regular army on the ground that they are docile, easily disci plined and where employed in the Indian country have proved efficient and reliable. They naturally care better for the animals entrusted to them, and, in addition to this, they rarely desert. Nevertheless in spite of such testimony the ex-Confederate House has passed a bill which not only disbands the colored regiments but practically precludes the enlistment of colored men in the army by refusing to insert an amendment declar ing that no distinctions shall be made in the enlistments on account of color. Mr. Small, a colored member from South Carolina very per tinently remarked that ifthere were afew more Democratic Houses colored men could notbe admitted as members when elected any more than they could hereafter enlist in the army. A Republican Senate will avert the mischief of this measure but the action of the House plainly indicates that the party prejudice against the colored man has not died out now that he is a citizen. Judging by a letter lately received, Mr. E. Y. E. Rausch is in the habit of buying and some newspapers of selling railroad passes. Mr. Rausch says: “If you have railroad passes of any kind to dispose of it will be to your interest to address me and get prices for same, mentioning the road, time of limit, and whether made out to a name or to bearer.” For the benefit of many who hold free passes over railroads and wish to “realize” we state that Mr. Rausch’s address is Toledo, Ohio. He closes his letter with the impres sive remark: “Save this for future reference.” We will, and when we get any passes to sell will carefully consider any proposals he has to make. A correspondent of the Biddeford Jour nal sharply criticises Congressman Burleigh’s record as a Republican in and out of Con gress, and concludes that he should not be re-nominated for a third term. Hon. Leon ard Andrews of Biddeford is suggested by the writer as a fit man to become his successor. The Prince of Wales thinks he did exceed ing well because he spent in India less than the three hundred thousand dollars voted him by parliament, and the British tax-pay ers feel relieved to learn that no deficiency bill is to be presented. The name of the new Sultan of Turkey is Mahmoud Murad, the word “Effendi” hither to appended thereto, being merely a title of honor which falls into disuse as soon as a higher title is conferred. The Investigation. Blaine's success in the Northwest exceed ed our expectations, and it is now certain that he will lead on the first ballot, and that he can soon muster within about one hun dred votes of enough to nominate him. Morton has not secured as many votes as we thought be would have, and a considerable number of his Southern votes will not stick if persuasively introduced to the gates of fat pastures.—Cincinnati Commercial. It is pretty evident that the mud throwing at Mr. Blaine has greatly helped his pros pects. Thus Col. Forney says of the effect in Pennsylvania: “Mr. Blaine has boldly confronted all charges, and we believe is to day the most unobjectionable of the leading rivals for the glittering prize. If we may judge by Republican opinion in Pennsylva nia, after Gov. Hartranft has had his chance an overwhelming percentage is in favor of the statesman from Maine.” It is all out now. A prominent presiden tial candidate once advised a friend to in vest in a railroad. Friend invested—and investment did not turn out well. Candi date refuuded, and made friend whole. Now the “friend” publishes the correspondence, and the “independent” editor says of the candidate that he was selling shares “which he had acquired, doubtless in return for ser vices privately rendered to that undertaking while he was speaker of the House of Repre sentatives.” “Doubtless,” and on such evi dence the world is called upon to stone the man to death.—New York Mail. The fact that Mr. Blaine’s most unanimous support is not found in the East but in the West, is testimony to the national reputation he stands on. He is not a sectional candi date but a national one, and while it has doubtless been just as well that his own sec tion should not be prominent in pushing him upon the party, there is no doubt that it will be found hearty and unanimous in accepting the honor and substantial advantage which the West proposes to concede to it in select ing a New England candidate. For no doubt it is a substantial advantage to this section, (Vim win uc ^(iiumuiaiiij TTGiv/uutg^ Luuini” aii a time when, for various causes, the political preponderance of New England is declining. —Springfield Union. Whether Mr. Blaine ever bought or sold railroad bonds we do not know, and in one sense we do not care, and we imagine the public are of the same opinion. If it can be shown that he accepted a bribe and sold his vote, then it affects his honor, hut whether he sold bonds or shares, so long as he did not rob the government, is not of the slight est consequence. That he ever cheated his friends or betrayed a trust we do not believe. There is not probably a dozen members ot Congress who do not hold investments that are affected by their acts in Congress—and yet we would as willingly trust the members of Congress as any equal number ot mer chants, bankers or editors that could be as sembled.—Boston Journal. But there is one other consideration perti nent here, that Democrat and independent journalists will do well to take account of. The evidence against Speaker Kerr is in Its directness and positiveness a hundred-told stronger than anything that has been abduc ted in respect ot Mr. Blaine. What has the latter gentleman ever done that should make his equally swift, sweeping and solemn deni als less entitled to the respect and confidence of his countrymen? The friends of Mr. Kerr would have no just ground of complaint if the friends of Mr. Blaine should [treat Mr. Kerr as ungenerously as they have treated Mr. Blaine; but for ourselves we have no de sire to emulate their uncharitableness.—Bos ton Advertiser. Janesville (Wis.) Gazette. A Primitive Method of Traveling to the Centennial. Mr. Solomon Soule, of Stoughton, a farmer and an old resident of that section of Dane County, started for tbo Centennial Exposition yesterday. The manner in which he and his whole family—in all eight persons—are travel ing is akin to the days before railroads were built. He proposes to travel to Philadelphia in light wagons, and to make the journey as nleasant as possible, he ordered two llirht snrinor vehicles, each drawn liy a span of sprightly mustang ponies. He also takes aloug an extra horse, to be used iu cases of emergency. 'One of the wagons couveys the family, and the oth er provisions and bedding. Easy camp-chairs instead of common seats, are provided for the family in the wagon. Mr. Soule has a driver for one of his teams, and takes charge of the other himself. He has also a good tent which be will put up for lodging iu each night. His outfit is complete, and the entire family antici pate taking a good deal of comfort on their journey eastward. Alter seeing the Ceoteunial he proposes to drive to Maine, bis former home, and spend several weeks, and return to Wis consin late in the fall. Mulligan’s Appearance—In speaking of Mulligan, the seusational witness, the special of the Boston Journal says: “His story was told with a readiness which almost seemed eagerness, and Mulligan’s manner reminded the spectators of the fluency of the wit' ness Harney. There was about J^Iulli gan’s face a vindictive satisfaction, which seemed to indicate exaltation over, a premed itated deed. Some of the spectators • in the room who claimed to know Mulli gan personally, insisted that he was such a bit ter fanatic in his religion that he would consid er that he had done God a service to break ! down Mr. Blaine. ' Mulligan may have told the truth in everj 1 particular, and in some of the important par ticulars he was confirmed by Blaine’s owi ■ statement, but Mulligan’s mauncr coul l scarce ly prejudice an impartial observer in his favor.’ Recent Publications. Tbanscendentalism in New England. A His toby. By Octavius Brooks Frotbingham. New York: Q. P. Putuam’s Sons. For sale by Boring, Short & Harmon. “A Boston Cultus man” is the opprobrious term by which certain Indians and other wes tern barbarians stigmatize a person who ap pears to be inefficient. So says, in effect, a cor respondent of the New York Tribune, who is so Dear of kin to those uncivilized scorners of “Boston cultus” that he adopts their sneer to direct it, for political effect, against the sup porters of Bristow! Some of the more dis tinguished -‘Boston cultus” men, Emerson, Al cott, Theodore Parker, George Ripley, and with them, Margaret Fuller, appear upon the pages of Mr. Frothingham’s bpok. To each of these a chapter is given. And in another chapi ter certain “minor prophets” of that cultus, W. H. Channing, C. A. Bartol, J. F. Clarke, Sam. Johnson, Sam. Longfellow, D. A. Was son, T. W. Higginson and John Weiss are presented to the reader with most felicitous description and discrimination. One may learn here the significance of the “cultus” which is illustrated by names such as these, and discov er the head and front of its offending. These were Transcendentaiists; prominent represen tatives of that practical idealism which the Gradgrinds and the Chadbands, and the Tit mouses will always scorn as impractical and visionary. “Transcendentalism,” says Mr. Frotbingham, “was an episode in the intellectual life of New England; an enthusiasm, a wave of sentiment, a breath of mind that caught up such as were prepared to receive it, elated them, transported them and passed on,—no man knowing whither it went. Its influence on thought and life was immediate and powerful. Religion felt it, lit erature, laws, institutions. To the social agita tions of forty years ago it was invaluable as an inspiration. The various reforms owed every thine to it New Eugland character received from it an impetus that never will be spent.” Another wave of that enthusiasm is very much to be desired at this time, and in this State of Maine, where “reform” is too often used as a word of scorn, and “reformers” fall under the safe and easy contempt of journal ists. While we are waiting for that wave to come we can do no better than become ac quainted with the times of refreshing so re cently past. In this book Mr. Frotbingham gives a com prehensive and philosophical presentation of me transcendental movement, tie.nnas its be ginning, or rather its germ, in Germany, and traces its development along the coarse of Gcr man philosophy; describing by the way, with the touch of a master, the distinctive thought of Kant, Jacobi, Fichte, Schleiermacher. Goe the, Bichter, and others. He then shows the development of a similar course of thought in France and England, and exhibits Cousin, Constant, Jouffroy, Coleridge, Carlyle and Wordsworth, in their respective relations to it* But it was in New England that Transcendent alism came to maturity. “For with some truth it may be said that there never was such a thiog as Transcendentalism out of New Eng land.” “New England furnished the only plot of ground on this planet, where the transcen dental philosophy had a chance to show what it was and what it proposed.” The body of the work is therefore devoted to Transcendentalism in New England; and of this the history is fnll and complete, written by one who himself sympathizes largely with that he describes. It is a work that was needed, a history that waited to be writteD, a task that sooner or later some one must have attempted. To say that it has been performed at last by Mr. Froth ingham is to say that it has been well per formed. It is a book that should be in every library. C. W. B. Life, Letters and Table Talk of Benjamin Robert Hayden. Edited by R. H. Stoddard New York: Scribner, Armstrong & Co, For sale by Loring, Short & Haimon. This is the first number of a series, called the Sans Souci Seriec, consisting of the autobiogra phies and other personal recollections of people who have made their mark and are now main ly forgotten. It is edited by the same hand (Mr. Bicbard Henry Stoddaid’s) who prepared so acceptable a work in arranging the material known as the Bric-a-Brac collection. The quantity of literature of this description is so great that the services of a judicious editor are much needed to bring it within manageable bounds and open up a mass of readers who would otherwise have left it on the shelves. Yet of all reading the biographic reading is the most widely interesting. It is Sterne’s starl ing over again. The future of masses does not interest us so much as the joy or grief of a sin gle individual, whose motives and whose ex periences, once comprehended, tell effectively the story of masses. The fortunes of Hayden derive a peculiar interest from his tragic end. He saw many of the best people; he had gleams of triumph, embittered by long periods of misfortune, brought about by his unpractical qualities; he was a dependent upon the aristoc racv. whom he alternate'! v flattered and abused • he had no repose, nor the digDity which grows out of it; in every view that he took of friends or oi life tbe “mountainous me,” as Emerson calls it, stood out. He was bora in 178G and perished by suicide, in 184G. His journals and his letters give a most accurate representation of the life of the man; and they give sketches of persons whom he knew—Wordsworth Keats, Mitford, Hazlitt, Lamb and others—which add materially to the value of the book. G. X. D. The Prime Minister. By Anthony Trollope. Published by Harper Brothers. N. Y. For sale by Loring, Short & Harmon. This is one of the best of tbe author’s many novels. Its merit and interest cousist chiefly in its sketches of political life in Eogland. no ted with tbe impartial manner, entirely free from prejudice and bias, which is characteris tic of Mr. Trollope—even in telling the; ttory of imaginary people and the doings and say ings of their private supposititious lives. He generally seems to have no personal affection for the characters he creates, he neither accu ses nor excuses—but tells his tale as best he may, leaving the verdict to the reader. Bet in the present volume, the author himself is com. pelled to draw with loving touch the sketch of the almost ideal politician—Plantagenet Palli ser. His high understanding of the duties of a servant of the people, his delicate sense of hon or, his unselfish, strong and tender nature, influenced by tbe position of Prime Minister— form a study which, though of course closely connected with English politics, will be appre ciated by Americans, to whom such ideal poli' ticians are constantly becoming more desirable, more practicable and more familiar. Tbe Prime Minister—as well as some other charac ters who figure in these pages—is taken in a great degree from actual life. How closely the models have been followed, is of coarse impos sible to say, but it is good to know that such exist. A Nile Journal, by T. G. Appleton, Illustrated Viir ITunann Rnncnn Pnetnn • RnVmrf s Rrna ffne sale by Loring, Short Harmon. The author is a gentleman of elegant leisure who made a boat journey up the Nile and pnb. lished his journal in order that the public might share the pleasure with him. It is dif ficult to feel the same interest in a pleasure liip as in an expedition which has some impor tant object in view, but there is a charm in the Nile which is never exhausted, so that the feel ing towards a new book on the subjects is like Mr. Foots’ sentiment regarding his wife: “Ihe oftener we can repeat that most extraordinary woman, my opinion is the better.” The story is a sketchy journal of the voyage, describing the impressions received rather than the ob jects. The illustrations are from origina drawings and are very good. Notes. In the excellent series of Literature Primers Appleton & Company publish the Primer o! English Literature, by the Kev. Stopforc Brooke. No better sketch of English literatun has ever been published.

For sale by Bailey & Noyes In this mosquito-infested month of June th< reader will hesitate to follow Messrs. Estes 5 Lauriat in their description of “Half-Houn with Insects” as a “recreation in natural his tory.” However, aside from the title there ii nothing in the brochure to provoke criticism and much to admire. It is part nine of thi series written by Prof. A. S. Packard, jr., an< is given to the consideration of "insects as mimics.” The value of these pamphlets is too well-known to need setting forth. For sale by Bailey & Noyes. The Warfare of Science, by President White of Cornell, is the reprint of a paper first made public as a Phi Beta Kappa oration, and then published in the Popular Science Monthly, where it called forth; much comment and rraise. As now given in pamphlet form by Appleton & Co., it has been carefully re vised and considerably exterded. As an im partial history and temperate discussion of the so-called conflict between Science and Religion it is worthy of all praise. For sale by Bailey & Noyes. Having purchased the plates of “Osgood’s Library of levels” Estes & Lauriat have be gun issuing the series in the attractive style ol paper covers iu which their own novels are gotten up. A uniform set of Emile Gaboriou’s novels is now ready, and “File No. 113,” one of his striking and most Improbable stories of de tective experiences, is at hand. For sale by Bailey & Noyes. "To Buddlecome and Back” is not or.e of Mr. F. C. Burnand’s happy thoughts, and scarcely deserves reprint by Roberts Brothers. It might do very well for a magazine story, but is not worth habiting in a suit of good cloth. For sale by Loring, Short & Harmon.
