t 0 ®lre failtr Jerald. The Savannah Daily Herald 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 engines. 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. Phizes them Highly.— Mrs. 8. A. Allen's World’s Hair Restorer and 9 ylobalsamum, or Hair Dressing, are prized highly by all 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 bald spota. Every Druggist seliß them. dec It eod lw 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 plished. 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.
