Ijelter (Vain Mrs. l.tnroin.
Mr. Carpenter, the artist, who has been
publishing in the Independent his personal
recollections of President Lincoln, gives in
his last contribution a letter from Mrs. Lin
coln. Mrs. Lincoln writes:
“That terrible Friday, I never saw him so
supremely cheerful. His manner was even
plajrfyl. At three o'clock he drove out with
me in the open carriage. In starting, I asked
him if any one should accompany us? He
immediately replied: “No, I prefer to ride
by ourselves to-day." During the drive he
was so gay that I said to him, laughingly:
“ Dear husband, you almost startle me by
your great cheerfulness.” He replied: “And
well I may feel so, Mary, for I consider this
day the war has come to a close;” and then
added, “ We must both be more cheerlul in
the future. Between the war and the loss
of our darling Willie we have been very mis
erable.” Every word he then uttered is
deeply engraved on my poor, broken heart.
In the evening his mind was fixed upon hav
ing some relaxation. * * * I firmly be
lieve that if he had remained in the White
House, on that night of darkues9, when the
fiends prevailed, he would have been horri
bly cut to pieces. Those fiends bad too long,
contemplated this inhuman murder to have
allowed him to escape.”
Minino Under the Sea.— Some of the coal
and copper mines of England are at this
time being worked in what appears to be a
most singularly dangerous manner. They
extend out tour hundred yards (near a quar
ter of a mile) under the bed of the sea, and,
in some places, two hundred and sixty feet
below the sea level. The beating of (he
waves against the shore and rocks is dis
tinctly audible, even in the calm weather,
when the explorer gets near the sea level.—
When storms arise, the roar is terrific, and
the boldest men are at limes afraid to work,
lest the sea should break through and fill the
whole mine. Nor is this fear without great
cause, for the salt water actually oozes
through, and drips, impregnated with the
copper ore, into the mine. Three feet of
rocks is about all that is left, on an average,
between the mine ami the sea in many gal
leries. A day’s' work in the wrong place
with the pickaxe might cause the destruction
of the whole works. ludeed, in stormy
weather, the salt water jets and spurts
through in thin continaou9 streams. Plugs,
sometimes the thickness of a man's leg, alone
stand between the miner and the sea to keep
it out. No accident has ever yet happened;
but those who remember the Thames Tun
nel, twice or thrice filled with water, must
feel tpat some day an accident is almost cer
tain to happen. If it should, the damage
must be immense, and the loss of life great
and certain. The veins of copper, however,
are rioh, aud the men will follow them to
their uttermost, the proprietors of the mines
feeling that were uq invasion of the water to
take place they could stop the leak, as Mr.
Brunei did that of the Thames Tunnel, by
sinking bags of clay ever the hole, and then
pumping out the water with their enormous
How it is Dose in Mexico. —A curious
story is being told in Georgetown and Wash
ington, to the effect that the sou of Mrs.
Iturbide, late Miss Green, of Georgetown,
D. 0., was recently forcibly taken from the
mother in the city of Mexico, by order of the
Emperor Maximilian, and adopted by him ;
the child is only about four years old. He
has been created.a Prince of the Empire, and
the mother wa#urdered to leave Mexico in
twenty-four hours afterwards. It will be
remembered that Miss Green was married
some few years ago to Ignatius Iturbide, son
of the late Empehir of Mexico of that name.
At the time ot the marriage the groom was a
studqnt of Georgetown College. Recently
they have been tesiding in Mexico. Mrs.
Iturbide has returned to her home in the
District, and is said to be mnch distressed.

World’s Hair Restorer and 9 ylobalsamum,

who use them- Careful study and experience
has made them what they are acknowledged
in foreign countries as well as at home, the
only valuable preparation for restoring, in
vigorating, beautifying and dressing the hair.
Those who use them have no grey hair or

Hadn't Changed Mind— A man in
this city. Who bad never expressed a very
high opinion of “Blue Noses,” married a
Nova Scotia girl. Some time after, a Nova
Scotia acquaintance, who knew his former
opinion, said to him, “I suppose you have a
changed mind, now that you have a ‘Blue
Nosed wile." “Not by a darnpd sight 1” was
the reply of the husband, who declined
making any further explanation.

FEMALES, owing to the pcullar and imiiortani re
lations which they euaiam—their peculiar or
ganisation. and the offices they perform—are subiect
to many sufferings and ailments peculiar to iho sex.
Freedom from these contributes In no small degree lo
their happiness and welfare, for none can be happy
who are ill. Not only so, but no one ut these various
female complaints can long be suffered to run on
withaut involving the general health of the Individual,
and ere long producing permanent sickness and pre
mature decline. Nor Is it pleasant to consult a phv
sician for the relief of these various delicate affection*,
and only upon the most urgent nccessily will a true
woman so tar sacrifice tier greatest charm rs to do
this. The sex will then thunk us for placing in their
hands simple tpeelfics which will be found efficacious
in relieving and coring almost every one ol'those
troublesome complaints neculiar to the si x.
HELMBOLDS EXTRACT OI BUCHU.
Hundreds suffer on in silence, and hundreds of
others apply vainly to druggists aud doctors who
either merely tantalise them with the hope of a cure
or apply remedies which make them woise. 1 would
not wlsu tu assert unytntng that would do injustice
to the afflicted, but 1 am onligedto say that although
it may be produced from excessive exhaustion of the
power* ol life, -by laborious employment, unwhole
some air and food, prolase menstruation, the use of
tea and coffee, and irequent childbirth, ll is far often
er caused by direct irritation, applied to the mucous
membrane of the vagina itself.
When reviewing the causes of these distressing
complaints, it is most painful to contemplate the at
tendant evils consequent upon them. It is but simple
Justice to the subiect to enumerate a lew of the many
additional causes which so largely affect the life,
health, and happiness of woman in all classes of so
ciety, and w hie a, consequently , affect, more or less
directly, the welfare of the entire human family. The
mania that exists for precocious education and mar
riage, causes the years that nature designed for cor
poreal development to be wasted and perverted in the
restraints of dress, the early confinement of school,
and especially In the unhealthy excitement of the
ball-room. Tims, with the body halt clothed aud the
mind unduly excited by pleasure, perverting iu mid
night revel the Ljurs designed by Uattue lor sleep
and rest, the work of destruction is half accom
I consequence of this early strain upon her sy stem,
unnecessary effort is required by the delicate votary
to retain her situation iu school at a later day, ihus
aggravating the evil. When one excitement is over,
another in prospective keeps the mind morbidly sen
sitive to impression, while the now constant restraint
of fashionable dress, bbaolutely forbidding the exer
cise indispensable to the attainment and retention of
organic health and strength: the exposure to night
air; the sudden change of temperature; the com
plete prostration produced by exoeseive dancing must,
of necessity, produce their legitimate effect. At last
an early marriage caps the climax of misery, and tile
unfortunate one, hither to so utterly regardless of the
plain dictates and remonstrances of her delicate na
ture, becomes an unwilling subject of medical treat
ment. This is buts truthful picture of the experi
ence of thousands of thousands of our young woman.
Long beftire the ability to exercise ttte function.-, of
the generative organs, they require an education of
their peculiar uervotA-system; composed of what iS
called tho tissue, which is, in common with the fe
male breast snd iips, evidently under the control of
mental emotions aud associations ut an early period
o. life ; and, as we shall subsequently see. these emo
tions, when excessive, lead, long before puberty, to
habits which ssp the very life ol their victims ere nu
turn has sell-completed their developmeut.
