LAURA WASHINGTON ON A RAMPAGE
Justice Jossey gazed on Laura Vash
ir.atou yesterday, and Laura gazed back
upon the Justice. Miss, Washington is
not handsome, but her anatomy went far
to prove that she could be guilty of
“force of arms,” the charge upon which
t-he was arraigned. Laura had demolish
ed a small boy belonging to oi* Cl. uy
Chum, and on that principle of equity,
‘‘to the victor belongs the spoils,” had
robbed Chum’s descendant of a jug
of molasses and other commissaries,
wherewith to support herself during
these unprecedented times.
Laura is an old offender, a public
spirited citizen, and this onslaught on
the Churn’s, father and son, is no new
tactic in her military record. She had

THE HABAbM AMI ERIE CANAL
The old Waive sb and Erie canal is
to be sold fco-.’ay at Terre Haute Inch
its usefulness having passed away
with the complcction of the railroad
system of Ind. and the stockholders
who have invested §15,000,000 in tin
work having become anxious to re- J
ize something on the venture, which
has proven calamitous. V. hen Ind*
iana was bankrupt in 1841, and owed
$14,000,000, her creditors surrendered
the bonds of the State and received
for every, bond of SI,OOO, SSOO in
States five per cent, stock and SSOO
in Wabash and Erie stock, and for the
accrnded interest (about $3,000,000)
one*half in two and a half per cent.
State stock and one-half in two and a
half per cent, canal stock the canal
stock creditors having the custody of
the canal and its operation in trust
for twenty years from January 19,
1846. Since the expiration of she
limit,however,there has been a chronic
quarrel in Indiana between the State
and the creditors holding canal svock,
who wanted the State to resume con
trol of the canal, which has become a
very large elephant. The. State has
failed to do this, and the canal trus
tees have taken the step which will
culminate to'day in the sale of the
canal and its franchise and appear
ances. The trustees have also brouf ht
a suit to test the responsibility of the
State to the stockholders, claiming
that the canal was only transferred to
them to secure the old indebtedness
of the Stato to them. Half the canal
stock is held in Europe, the Roths
childs being among the number of the
stockholders. Efforts have been re
peatedly made to secure appropria
tions to repair the canal and make it
a highway for commerce, but with-
out success. The canal is obstructed
through much of its course, embank
ments have given away, and as a wa
ter highway it is not a sucees. ’ The
railroads have killed it. It was de
signed to boa permanent commercial
channel from Toledo, on lake Erie to
the Ohio river, and for many years it
fulfilled its mission.

BLEEDING I-ROM LUNGS. CaTA!?!>!!,
BRONCHITIS, CON U.MCMON \
Rochester, NY, /
Jan. 13th, 1874 j
R. V. Pierce, NT. D , Buffalo. N. Y:
Jean kir:- —1 had sutured from Ca
tarrh in an aggravated form for about
twelve years and for several years from
Bronchial trouble. Tried many doctors
and things with no lasting benefit. In
May ’72, becoming nearly worn out with
excessive editorial labors on a paper in
New York Cith, I was attacked with
Bronchitis in a severe form, suffering
almost a total loss of voice. I returned
home here, but had been home only two
wei-ks when I was completely prostrated
with Hemorage from the Lungs, having
four severe, bleeding'spells within two
weeks, and first three inside of nine dags.
In the September following, I improved
sufficiently to be able to be about, tlio’
iu a very feeble state. My Bronchial
trouble remained and the Catarrh was
tenfold worse than before. Every effort
fer relief seemed fruitless. I seemed to
be losing ground daily. I continued in
this feeble state, raising blood almost
daily until about the fitst of March, ’73,
when I became so bad as to be confined
to the house. A friend suggested your
remedies. But I was extremely skepti
cal that they would do me good, as I had
lost all heart iu remedies,and began to
look on medicine and doctors with dis
gust. However, I obtained one of your
circulars, and read it carefully, from
which I came to the conclusion that vou
understood your business, at least. .! fi
nally obtained a quantity of Dr. Sage’s
Catarrh Bemedy, your Goldeu Medical
Discovery and Pellets, and commenced
their vigorous use according to direc
tions. To my surprise, I soou began to
improve. The Discovery and Pellets, in
a short time, brought out a severe erup
tion, which continued for several weeks.
I felt much better, my appetite improz’-
ed, and I gained in strength and flesh.—•
In three months every vestige of the Ca
tarrh was gone, the Bronchitis had near
ly disappeared, had no Cough whatever
and I had entirely ceased to raise blood;
j and, contrary to the expectation of some
! of my friends, the cure has remained
! permanent. I have had no more Hem
' orrliages trom the lungs, and am entire-
I ly free from Catarrh, from which I had
suffered so mdeh and so long. The. debt
; of gratitude I owe for the blessing I have
! received at your hands, knows no bounds.
| I an thoroughly satisfied, frtyn my ex
j perience, that your medicines will mas
i ter the worst forni3 of that odious dfs
-1 ease Catarrh, as well as Threat and Lung
i Diseases. I have recommended them
; to very many and shall ever speak in
| their praise. * Gratefully yours,
