H., April 10,1876. DR. LOB1NG, Dear Sir:—I am now seventy-five years old. For the past ten years I have teen a very great sufferer from that awiul disease Dyspepsia, and all the ills that attend it. During this time, I could not eat meat or any hearty food. My diet was from necessity )f the most simple character, and that distressed me fearfully. I never saw a day that 1 did not suffer from either Distressed Spells, Head Ache, Darting Pains. Palpitation* Great Des pondency, Debility, Nervousness, Constipa tion or Flatulency, I did not have one good night's rest for years. The best medical skill failed to help me, and I became completely dis couraged. Recently, however, on a visit to Portland [ was induced to try LORING’M SPECIFIC* 3h what a change that good medicine has wrought in me. I now feel like a new woman; in ract, I have not enjoyed so good health since I was a girl. All my pains and distress have entirely left me. [ can eat and digest any kind of food, and sleep iweetly every night. To you, dear sir, and your excellent Specific X am indebted for this great care. It is indeed a blessing to the aged. Gratefully your friend, ESTHER PHILHRICK. The above statement is strictly true. CHARLES H. ALLEN, Doorkeeper Portland Museum. EORING’S SPECIFIC for Dyspepsia, Constipation* Sick Headache and Piles.

Taking into consideration the character ot its vouchers, the history of its cures and the immense increasing demand, Vegetine may be fairly en titled the leading medicine of the age. For scrofula in the blood, Vegetine is an in fallible remedy, and no person need suffer from humors, ulcers, and all diseases arising from impure blood, if Vegetine is used according to directions. There is not a case of scrofula in existence that Vegftine will not cure, provided, however, the vital functions have not lost their power of action, all that may be said to the contrary notwithstanding. Vegetine is pleasant to the taste, mild in its in fluence, and absolute in its action on disease, as the iollowing unquestionable evidence will show. PAID NEARLY $400.00 ! ! January 2, 1875. H. R. Stevens, Esq: • Dear Sir: When about six months old I was vac cinated. The parties who where vaccinated from the same virus dieii Irom the humor. The humor spread over me to such an extent that I was rolled in bran to prevent me from scratching my person. The disease finally settled in my head. I remained in this condition about twenty years, troubled all the time with sores breaking in my head and dis charging corruption from my car. At this time a small kernel appeared on my neck, gradually in 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 various remedies for my blood without any substantial benefit. I then went to a prominent physician, in Boston, who, during his treatment of six months, lanced the tumor eight times, which cost me nearly $400. This left me with a rough, aggravated sore, without at all diminishing the size of the tumor, and in a sickly, feeble condition. I consulted another physician in Natick, who, after considerable time, succeeded in healing the sore without reducing the size. At this point I commenced to use Vegetine, through the earnest persuasion of a friend. After 1 bad taken this medicine about one week 1 experienced wonder ful sensations. My whole body seemed to be under going a radical change, until, finally, the tumor broke and discharged frightful quantities. From this time it decreased in size until the bunch disappeared, but my neck still bears the ugly scars of the sore and lance. I am now healthy and strong and able to work every day. I will al6o 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. This statement I volunteer for the purpose of bene fiting other suffering humanity, and you will confer a favor by giving it as much publicity as thought proper. Very gratefully, O. M. SAVELS, Ashland, Mass. What is Vegetine*? It is a compound extracted from barks, roots and herbs. It is nature's remedy. It is perlectly harm less trom any bad effect upon the system. It is nour ishing and strengthening. It acts directly upon the blood. It quiets the nervous system. It gives you a good, sweet sleep at night. It is a great panacea for our aged fathers and mothers, for it gives them strength, quiets their nerves, and gives them nature’e sweet sleep—as has been proved by many an aged person. It is the great Blood Purifier. It is a sooth ing remedy lor our children. It has relieved and cured thousands. It is very pleasant to take; a very child likes it. It relieves and cures all diseases orig inating from impure blood. Try the Vegetine Give it a lair trial for your complaints; then you will say to your friend, neighbor and acquaintance, “Try it; it has cured me." Report from a Practical Chemist and Apothecary. Boston, Jan. 1, 1874, Dear Sir: This is to certify that I have sold at re tail 154 1-3 dozen (1852 bottles) of your Vegetini since April 12, 1870. and can truly sav that it has giv en the best satisfaction of any remedy for the com glaints for which it is recommended that I ever sold carcely a day passes without some of my customer* testifying to its merits on themselves or their friends I am Perfectly cognizant of several cases of scrofulou* Tnmo'rs being cured by Vegetine alone in this vicin ity.

Mr. Blaine’s statement is so clear and con vincing that it requires no added words of explanation from his friends, and leaves his enemies no substantial basis for continued assaults. It is certainly a triumphant refuta tion of the slanders which have been heape d upon him. But it is quite impossible to si lence the cavillers. The falsity of one accu sation demonstrated they immediately man ufacture another. No sooner did Mr. Rollins deny the statement imputed to him than a charge was fathered upon Morton, Bliss & Co. They indignantly denied its authorship. Then Tom Scott was charged with being privy to a corrupt transaction in which Mr. Blaine was concerned. He promptly filed a denial. As a last resort Mr. Blaine’s assail ants fall back upon Director Harrison, and ask why Mr. Blaine did not deny the charge made by that man. The reason why has become evident, and the last support of the scandal-mongers is knocked from under them. Mr. Harrison states that in writing and tele graphing Mr. Wilson regarding the Union Pacific Railroad he did not give the name of Mr. Blaine, but simply remarked that the person referred to was a prominent and influ ential member of the Republican party. As Mr. Harrison did not name Mr. Blaine the ex-Speaker could not with any grace name Mr. Harrison or deny an accusation so gen eral in its terms. He is not the only “promi nent and influential member of the Republi can party” who has been mentioned in con nection with Pacific Railroads. All he could do, and that he did do satisfactorily, was to demonstrate that the Harrison story did not apply to him by showing that he had no con nection with the Union Pacific. It would seem that Mr. Blaine has com pletely discomforted his assailants. But he will find that hunting a slander is a long chase. They will come up smiling with an' other story, and with a sublime disregard of facts will continue to manufacture lies unti* the close of the presidential; campaign. Just now their invention is at fault, and they are forced to fall back on the “tomato sauce” method of conducting a case, so successful in the case of Bardell vs. Pickwick. They quote these words from Mr. Blaine’s testimony be fore the Credit Mobilier committee: “Hav ing large business transactions with the Messrs, Coburn in various matters,” and print them in Italics and put exclamation points after them, and insinuatingly remark that the Fort Smith bond business is a vari ous matter, and consequently there is some thing wrong about it. This appears to be the course of the Argus. It is sneaking and dishonest it is true, and there are other ob jections to it. But objections of that nature never disturb the Argus. In a piece of de licious reasoning which has quite upset the gravity of the town and made it a sub ject for laughter wherever read, it takes up and defends the “tomato sauce” theory. Possibly its readers may be as stupid as the Pickwick jury, but the supposition is not a probable one. “Chops i Good heavens, gen tlemen 1”_ It is said that hereafter the Departments will not furnish the scavenger committees of the House with original documents aud records in their possession. Heads of depart ments claim that they are held responsible for such records, and it is a fact that such committees were given important records two months since which have not been returned but are kept in committee rooms where fig ures may be changed. Some of these com mittees even refused to return such papers when requested by their lawful custodians to do so. The cabinet have a precedent for such a procedure in the action of Gen. Jack son, who, when President addressed a letter to Senator Foote who was chairman of a pnmmit.tpp. to invp.aticratA frpnpral pharcma nf abuse against the executive departments which contains the following defiant declar ations : The heads of departments may answer such re quests as they please, provided they do not withhold their own time and that of the officers under their direction from public business to tbe injury thereof to that busiuess. I shall direct them to devote themselves to their duties in preference to any illegal and unconstitutional call for information, no matter trom what source it may come, and however anxious they may be to meet it. For myself, I shall repel all such attempts as an invasion of the principles of justice as well as of the Constitution, and I shall esteem it my sacred duty to the people of the United Staies to resist them as 1 would the establishment of a Spanish inquisition. If, alter all the severe accusa tions contained in various speeches of yourself and your associates, yon are unwilling of your own ac cord to bring specific charges, then 1 request your committee to call yourself and your associates and every other member of Congress who made general charge of corruption to testify before God and the country whether you or they know of any specific corruption or abuse of trust in the executive depart ments, and, if so, what it was. If you are able to point to any case where there is the slightest reason to suspect corruption and abuse of trust, no obstacle wbich I can remove shall be interposed to prevent the fullest scrutiny by all legal means. The offices of all the departments will be open to you, and every facility furnished for this purpose. I shall, on the one hand, cause every possible facility consistent with law and justice to be given to the investigation of specific, tangible charges, and, on the other, shall repudiate all attempts to invade the just rights of the executive departments and of the individuals composing the same If, after all your clamor, you will make no specific charges, or bring no proof of such as are made, you and your associates must be regarded by the good people ef the United States as the authors of unfounded calumnies, and the public servants you have assaulted will, in the estimation of all honorable men, stand fully acquitted. There is such a thing as being too learn ed. Max Muller has written to the Loudon Times a letter on the royal titles bill in which he insists that the title Queen Victoria should take is “Adhirajni of India.” lie seems to be in earnest too, and is evidently bent on dislo cating the jaw of every diplomatist in London. The temperance reform which has been spreading over Maine and other states the past six months is most remarkable. Communities seem to be ripe for temperance reform. Men by scores and hundreds who have been accustomed to use intoxicating liquors more or less freely, have taken the pledge of total abstinence and evince a de termination to lead lives of sobriety. The number of drinking men who have taken the pledge in Maine the past six months must number five thousand at least. A recent carefully made estimate of the result of the temperance work in Massachusetts puts the number of drinking meu who have signed the pledge the past six months in that state at 30,000. In our own state there are villages where so many of the patrons of saloons and other drinking resorts have taken the pledge that those keeping them have found the “iron clad” pledge a more formidable force than the sheriff and the stringent liquor law. The work i3 still going on and every friend of sobriety must rejoice thereat. In the good old Democratic days when post-traderships were disregarded and rail road bonds unknown, the days to which some of our simple-min politicians look back with yearning, this is the way, as set forth by a correspondent of the Boston Ad vertiser, that government officers recom pensed themselves for the smallness of their salaries: This Memphis dates back to 1828—that is to say, is nearly fifty years old—and will celebrate its jubilee about the time when the rest of us are tired of centennials. It so happened that Gen. Andrew Jackson and friends of bisowned land here It so happened that he became pres ident of the United States. Those beiDg days of virgin purity, when sutlerships were unwor thy ot the attention of administrations, and even postmaster generals were not satisfied with contracting for wrapping paper and twine, the president ordered the establishment of a navy yard here, the buildings of which still stand. After the Jackson property bad been sold there seems to have been no further occa sion for the navy yard, and it was given up. Such was the simple method by which our fathers in Democratic purity of government enriched the chiefs and served the country at the same time The New York papers take an eminently practical view of things. One of them re grets the death of the Princess Isabella, aunt of the Empress of Brazil “both for the sake of the Empress, who will thus be deprived of a rare opportunity of seeing what a brilliant array of court beauties New York could pro duce if only New York had a court to show them off in, and for the sake of the givers of the ball who will thus be deprived of an in valuable lioness.” It is certainly anuoying to have a kinswoman die just as one is goiug to a ball. Ix has excited some surprise that Judge Kelley should have a ten dollar gold piece in his pocket, but from the use he made of it in the House Tuesday it is evident that he car ries it round as an awful example of the evils of indulgence in metallic currency. Then too he finds it convenient to have an eagle handy to pinch when he breaks out into oratory. Judging from the different reports coming to us, a very sharp and unprofitable compe tition for freight is going on between the rail roads betweeu this city and Boston. The feeling is said to be very hitter, and it is evi dent that none but shippers will profit by the war. The railroads can hardly afford to en ■ gage largely in the throat cutting business at the present time. While most of us believe that it would be a grave mistake to make silver coin legal ten der for any large amount there is still no ne cessity of abusing Senator Jones because he thinks otherwise. There is much to he said in favor of the double standard, and econo mists are not yet agreed in condemning it. Mb. Blaine’s enemies would doubtless like an investigation which should be pro longed until after the Cincinnati convention, and they bitterly complain of him because he chooses to refute the slander at once. But the reason for their complaint is too obvious to entitle it to any consideration. Minister Washbubne has completely upset the calculations of the Illinois politi cians by absolutely declining the nominatiou for Governor of that State. The declination will materially alter the aspects of the gub ernatorial canvass. The reports in the Western papers are of a very encouraging nature generally. The winter wheat is as a whole better than an average and the farmers with the aid of the machinery which can be used in that country are fast planting broad fields of wheat. Diaz does not have so good fortune as the average Mexican revolutionist. His move ment is near to failure. Can it be that the Mexican people are growing in good sense ? It appears to have been a Blaine prayer which the Rev. Mr. Webb offered at the Massachusetts State Convention yesterday. Mr. Blaine’s Defense. Mr. Blaine seems to have met his enemies at every point, and fully answered them Possibly he has disappointed some friends iu not demanding a formal investigation, but so far as we can see, he pursued a wise and dignified course in the matter.—Providence Journal. With the evidence cited by Mr. Blaine, proving his entire innocence in a transaction which at one time looked exceedingly dark, his present impassioned and strong disclaim er of wrongdoiug in any of his official acts will have areat weiaht with the enmmiinitv— Boston Transcript. Mr. Blaine’s explanation leaves nothing to be desired on the score of candor or explicit ness. II the House desires to investigate him be is ready, but his reasons for not having demanded an investigation are entirely satis factory. He has simply been wantonly lied about by a pack of editorial blackguards.— New Ilaven Palladium. It will do much to turn back the title ol public feeling in Mr. Blaine’s favor. And bet ter than his personal vindication, it will throw discredit on the charges and assaults so remorselessly made against our ablest and most honorable public men without any thing more than the shadow of foundation, and clear the air of the murky and stifling suspicions with which it is so heavily charged. —N. Y. Graphic. The stories against Blaine seem to come from political associates, who are rolling up the whites of their eyes in friendly alarm for Blaine in public, while busy ia secret caucus ing with guileless independents for Bristow. Mr. Bristow is so good a man that he ought not to be subjected to this damage from pue rile supporters. We are sure they do not act with his approval. But he should give them notice to stop.—N. Y. Tribune. We publish the full text of Mr. Blaine’s reply to the recent charges against him. It is a strong, direct, straightforward answer, and will be accepted as effectual, Mr. Blaine meets the accusations with an explicit and ab solute denial, and is able to fortify it with documents which sustain his averments. No man is altogether sale from charges—that man is fortunate who can meet them as suc cessfully as Mr. Blaine.—Albany Journal. Mr. Blaine's explanation is explicit and comprehensive. The charges against him were confined to insinuation and innuendo, but his answer is specific, and covers the entire history cf the transactions with which he was said to have been corruptly connected, Not only is there a square and manly denial, but in the absence ot evidence of his guilt Mr. Blaine supplies the proof of his inno cence. And now that he has spoken, we hope the Democratic majority in Congress and our friends of the "independent” section of the press will be content. The one should call off its dogs and the other silence its carp ing. The characteristics of the jackal should find no place in either statesmanship or journalism.—Philadelphia Press. The first judgment of any person who is not predetermined to find Mr. Blaiue guilty will be, that he has made a most comprehen sive denial of the acts charged against him, and that he has furnished ample documentary evidence of the untruth of the charges. The accusations have taken such numerous forms, in many cases being evidently only inventive guesses, that it is quite possible that some of them may have been overlooked. We must leave the diligent scavengers who are so much in the ascendant in these times to tell us whether it is so or not. Mr. Blaine has taken a position where it is impossible tor his ac cusers to persist without bringing forward some proof that he has in fact or in intent told a falsehood.—Boston Advertiser. Mr. Blaine’s refutation of the recent char ges against him is very emphatic and seems to cover all the material points. He asserts that there is not a particle of truth in the statement that he ever in any way received any money from the Union Pacific road in return for bonds of an Arkansas railroad, and his denial is confirmed by the statement of those persons who ought to know if any such transaction took place, and who have been named as possessing the evidence in the case. The only weak spot in Mr. Blaine’s reply is in not insisting upon a full and speedy investigation, but his reasons for not taking this course are given, and are sup ported by his experience of the delays which inevitably occur in any investigation. In his own case he doubtless has good reason to believe that an investigation would be pur posely prolonged by the Democratic House in order if possible to damage his presiden tial prospects.—Hartford Courant. In preferlng a personal explanation with documentary evidence to the tedious pro ceedings of an investigating committee as a method of vindicating himself, Mr. Blaine has done very wisely. The character of the investigating committees of this Congress is not such as to lend any weight to their con clusions, whatever they may be, and had those conclusions been other than adverse, every body knows that every Democratic and “independent” paper would have promptly claimed the verdict as a whitewashing report. Mr. Blaine has instead appealed directly to the country by the statement of his case and production of his documents on the floor of Congress. While not one in ten of the public men who are nowadays charged with crimes is guilty, it does not often happen that the most Innocent are able to make out so con clusive a vindication as Mr. Blaine made Monday. The charges against him had in deed been already denied and disposed of to the satisfaction of all who carefully followed the news of the day, but for the benefit of those who, owing to imperfect familiarity with the actual history of the scandal, had been influenced by the skillful innuendoes of the “independent” press, the exDlanation in the House was needed, and has fully met the necessity.—Sprinafteld Union. Current Notes. Tbe New York Tribune says that the fact that public attention is almost universally directed as to whom the Republicans will nominate for the Presidency is indicative that , the next President will be named at Cincin nati and not at St. Louis. It thinks that Gov. Tiiden is tbe only man whos works commend him to the public as a reformer. The Democrats in Congress are in a fair way to discredit themselves by the investiga tions now underway tar more than they can disgrace the Administration. They seem to imagine that all the people of the United States are qnite as anxious as Democratic politicians can be to prove Gen. Grant a thief, Mr. Williams a public robber, Robeson a worthy comrade of Belknap, and Babcock a burglar. They are ransacking bank accounts, turning the departments inside out, listening to the chatter ot human magpies, hanging upon the lips of garrulous detectives, getting together the tag rag and bobtail of the civil service, and setting up a scandal bureau in every committee room of the Capitol. No story that comes to their ears is too gross for immediate belief. No charge against officers of the government is so outrageous that they are not ready upon the slightest testimony both to accept it themselves and to spread It before the public.—N. T. Tribune.

A few days since a communication was re ceived accompanied by tbe following note: -, April 13,1876. Sib: I suppose that even God the Savior him self would be refused and rejected in bis works by tbe Editors and Publishers unless he were an old and well-known and established writer however meritorious might be his productions: So obstinately bent are those who have charge and management of Papers and Pamphlets to exclude allnew contributors to their sheets, and 90 determedly are they resolved not to believe them worthy of an admitence into their col emns; while they fill up their pages with such foolish and trifling material as that all does not amount in value to the worth of an egg-ful of dishwater. I would like to understand how good a writer must be, or to what degree his productions must be valuable before he can be considered as good; and how long his firobation must last and just how long he must reeze to an icicle by being, compelled tq stand out in the cold before it is considered, prudent to permit him to come in. 1 cannot conceive of any just reason whatever why a good writer should not be immediately granted the privi lege of having his writings inserted on the printed page, nor where the justice or fancied justice can lie of shoving aside things of im portance to make place for trifles which are a disgrace both to the station they occupy and to those or him Who permits them to be placed there. It this writing which I now send you is not really good then I am profoundly ignorant what constitutes good: and though I look to have it rejected, and therefore send enclosed a stamp for its return sbonld it be so, yet I shall justly and with good ground consider it a burn ing shame if rejection comes. 1 am not a new writer or a fresh contributor although I have never yet succeeded; and although l am firmly resolved if I live that success shall be mine. Yet I cannot conceive what good posthumous success can be to a person, ten thousand years after be is dead. I suppose that you will re move tbe address at my request from tbe top ot the sheet if you should see fit to consign this to printing. I hope your opinion will co inside with mine, that you will oblige your cor respondent, and that 1 shall at length hive tbe happiness of findiog success upon your sheet wben I never found it elsewhere before. The stamp can be used to return me an answer il the manuscript is accepted. Should 1 fail this time 1 snail most assuredly try yon again: being bound to succeed. Yours, dear Sir, with much respect. Now a man who has so exalted an opiuion of his capacity as the writer of tbe above criticism “pvu »«w UJHIIOU (IUU1I UI • l WUl U< I I LCBO paper, bas a right to have his productions spread upon tbe printed page. Aud who wilt say that $4, the value set by the wri ter upou the following articles, is au exorbitant charge for the goods? We shall be surprised if the reader imagines that he has seen anything like it. The first article is entitled THE FUTURE COXING CENTURY OF OUR COUN TRY. God’s first event of note, which must be brought cut into actual transpirance, in the lung fiow of years which rolls leadiog onward toward the first bi-ceutennial, is the election by the irresistable voices of votes,—whoever may be tbe selection.of the nation,—ot another new Cbiet Magistrate to preside over this populous and extensive land: to be followed by bis in duction into office in the spring of the succeed ing year, Among the occurrences which be walkings of Time must soon fetch upon eoeiety and throughout the moral country, are that shift of circumstances with regard to the position of tbe sexes, which is to throw an equal civil franchise into the possession of both, and bring on an equal power in each of contributing to the salvation of their clime; aud the now not far-off and perfect melting and blending down of the masses of civilized and Christianized Indians into one Identical and nnmeracal nation with the whites. The higher recognition of and snperiot honor to the Great and Tremendous Divine and his fioal elevation to an actual record among the arti cles and on the version of tbe National Consti tution. as the first great cause and immediate source of that vast stream, tbe existence of peoples, is shortly to become a sacred portion of reality: and a farther softening in tbe spirit and nature of tbe times, to be shown by tbe removal of that wild bird of fierceness as an emblem from the country’s ensign and her aldry, and the substitution thereupon of that beauty of holiness, the Volume of his match less Covenants. The Power of Travel shall assume to herself fresh dominion, and in her goiDgs she shall seek out new and strange Saths, routes of mystery and wonder: urging osts on their journeys in their safely sealed up chariots, below tbe ridings and tbs vor texes of tempests, far down upon the wastes and among their stretching secrets, at the wallowing bottam of the darksome brine. Art, on the selfsame purpo-e bent, aud for tbe growing convenience of our kind, for athousaud leagues will stretch aloft her iron arches, loaded with tracks for the conveyance of the steeds of steam, high over the swinging structure of the gorgeous ocean. Nor yetis it remotely off, either in itself or in the scope of my thoughts’ expansion the period when men aud the ve hicles of travel shall begin to cease their dis tant coursings over the earth, and commence their far and magnified trampiogs through the skies.
