And prepare for a heavenly the charge of it rat at eylau. It is at eylau that Murat always appears in his most terrible this Battle was fought in midwinter in 1807, was the most important and bloody one that had then France and Russia had never before opposed such strength to each other and a Complete Victory on either Side would have settled the Fate of Europe Bonaparte remained in Possession of the Field and that was All Tio Victory was Ever so like a defeat. The Field of eylau was covered with Snow and the Little Ponds that Lay scattered Over it were Frozen sufficiently hard to Bear the a Deven thousand men on one Side and thousand on the other arose from the Frozen Field on which they had slept the night of february without tent or covering to Battle for a continent. Auserau on to left was utterly routed in the morning. Advancing through a Snow storm so thick he could not see Tho enemy the russian Cannon mowed Down his ranks with their destructive fire while the Cossack cavalry ibo wore ordered to charge came thundering on almost hitting the French infantry w the their Long Jaynees before they were visible throw the storm. Hour Road in and overthrown the whole division composed of 16,000 Raen with the exception of 1500, were captured or slain. Just then the Snow storm Clearing up revealed to Napoleon the peril to which he was brought and he immediately ordered a grand charge by the Imperial guard and the whole cavalry. Nothing was farther from Bonaparte a wishes or expectations than the bringing of this Reserve into Tho engagement at this Early stage of the Battle but there was no other resource left him. Murat sustained his High reputation on this occasion and proved himself for the Hundredth time worthy of tha great Confidence Napoleon placed in him. Nothing could he More imposing than the Battle Field at this moment. Bonaparte and the Empire trembled in the balance while Murat prepared to Lead Down his cavalry to save them. Seventy squadrons making in ail 14,000 Well mounted men began to move Over the slope with the old guard marching sternly on behind. Bonaparte it is said was More agitated at this crisis than when a to. Inonu before to was so near being captured by Tho russians. But As be saw those seventy squadrons come dded on a plunging Trot pressing by re after the White plume of m u rat that streamed through the Snow storm far in front a smile passed Over his countenance. The Earth groaned As they passed and the sabres above the dark and angry mass below looked like the foam of a sea wave As it crests on the deep. The rattling of their Armor and the muffled Thunder of their tread drowned ail the Roar of Battle As with the firm set array and Swift steady motion they bore Down with terrible front on the foe. The Shock of that immense Host was like a falling Mountain and the front line of the russian army went Down like Frost worked before it. Then commenced a protracted flight of hand to band and sword to sword As in the cavalry action at Eek Muhl. The clashing of steel was like the ringing of countless hammers and horses and riders were blended in wild confusion Toge Berj the russian reserves were ordered up and on these Murat fell with his fierce horsemen crush my and trampling them Down by thousands. But the obstinate rus. 6mns disdained to Fly and rallied a gain. So that it was no longer cavalry charging on infantry but squadrons of horses galloping through broken hosts that gathering into knots still disputed with unparalleled bravery the red and rent Field. It was during this strange fight that Murat was seen to perform one of those desperate deeds for which he was so renowned. Excited to the highest pitch of passion by the of. Staples that opposed him be seemed endowed with tenfold strength and fed non Tomtz. Y0l. 13�?no. 34. Lebanon pa., wednesday february 12, 1862. Whole no. 660. Looked More like a superhuman be ing treading Down helpless mortal than an Ordinary Man. Amid the Roar of artillery and the rattle of musketry and failing of Sabre strokes like lightning about him that lofty White plume never once went Down while Ever and anon it was seen glaring through the smoke of Battle and the Star of Hope to Napoleon and showing that his a right army was still uplifted and striking for Victory. He raged like an a loosed lion amid the foe and his eyes always terrible in Battle burned with increased Lustre while his Clear and steady voice heard above the turmoil of strife was Worth More than a thousand trumpets of cheer on his followers. At length seeing a knot of russian soldiers that for a Long time kept a devouring fire on Bis men he wheeled Bis horse and drove in full Gallop upon their levelled muskets. A few of his guards that never allowed that White plume to leave their sight charged after him. Without waiting to count his foes he seized his bridle in his Teeth and with his pistol in one hand and his drawn sword in Tho other burst in headlong fury upon them and scattered them us if a Hurricane had swept by. Murat was a Thunderbolt on that Day and the deeds that were wrought by him will furnish themes for the poet and the Painter. Madagascar. This Island May before Many years assume importance in the political and commercial world. At present its importance is recognized More in the moral atmosphere. It has been for years the habitation of cruelty the vein a Gehenna of the a Philo we have read of cannibalism in the heart of Africa As described by Duc Haitht and while we remember the horrors of wife burning in India and other atrocities in barbarous regions we Are still compelled to believe that under the late Queen Madagascar surpassed every other part of the Earth in the horrors of persecution and torture. What is especially wonderful is the sudden change which has been instantaneously effected on her death it was Well known that the Queen was a sort of female monster while her son was totally Tho reverse. The latter held a very Peculiar position. It was not uncommon for him when Riding out to find the victims of his mothers cruelty then suffering punishment and to relieve them at once. He was noted for his steadfast efforts to relieve the oppressions under which the people were crushed. Instead of doing this by mollify ing the character of his wolfish Parent he seemed Long ago to have Given that up ask impossible and contented himself with an occasional open collision with her authority and frequent modifications of her terrible decrees. This of course resulted in quarrels and at one time in his Inoris Ozment and threatened death. Makoto the Prince was no common Man however and up to the time of his mothers death successfully preserved his Noble character. An English embassy which Wak sent to congratulate him on his accession to the throne has returned bringing much information from the Island. They state that the Queen has undoubtedly put to death More than 100,000 persons during ber reign. She not in frequently slaughtered a thousand men at a time. Two thousand christians have been executed for their religious belief. They were usually crucified being bound to the Cross with cords and stoned or starved to death. Chain gangs of them were sometimes made up in groups of fifteen or Twenty and the Chain was Rieve removed. One by one the miserable victims fell dead and the living were compelled to drag on the heavy Load. It was an absolute exemplification of Tho apostles allusion to Tho roman horror of one attached to it a body of death a More died and the chains wore dragged away from their loathsome attachments the feeble remnant worked on with the Iron galling them until three or two or at last one miserable worn out wretch was left to drag the Chain that Twenty had Laboured under. And when these relics of the gang yielded to the inevitable death that had walked before them no one administered one drop of water to relieve there dying agonies but in the Field or on Tho Roadside where they fell their they died in misery that no imagination can describe. When Rakota came to. The throne one poor old woman seventy years of age was found alive dragging around a Chain from which she had seen fifteen companions fall away during eleven years of Captivity and suffering the Iron Collar had worn deeply into her neck and the Maiks of the. Chain were on ber Ankles. The new King who drops his name Makoto Aud takes that of Radami ii., is a Man of exceeding the English ambassadors fear that he May be too mild for the rough work before him. We Are inclined to think they Are wrong. For some years past we have watched with much anxiety the character of the Prince Makoto As Given by travellers and it seems probable that he fully understands the Law ruling bad spirits by kindness while he is Able to be firm when it is necessary. Nothing Short of a decided spirit could have enabled him to sustain the contest which he has for Yearb kept up so successfully with Queen a Navalou never for an instant yielding to fear of her. He now holds in prison a rival hib Cousin rambo Salama who attempted to seize the throne. The truculent English gentlemen seem to wonder that he does not execute him and thus have him put of the a member of the embassy writing on account of their Progress says a a the in fact a res in policy in an altogether opposite Way by being too lenient. An unsuccessful competitor for the throne named rambo Salama a Cousin of the King was allowed to go unscathed and is or was at the time the embassy left Antananarivo in what the King is pleased to term a honorable what the con sequence of this leniency will Belt is impossible to foresee. It is certain that rambo Salama has adherents in the capital if not in the Kings Palee and should any revolution succeed and rambo Salama attain his object things Willie Wofse than Ever. The avowed desire of rambo Salama is to carry out the Queens policy in All its horrible the new King probably intends trying his own policy in suppressing All rebellions in his dominions Ana under Bis mild and enlightened Sway we have great Hopes for Madagascar. He is not a Christian but professes a sort of deism. A sad Case of desertion. An innocent girl misled st faithless promises. Front the a Chicago a few Days since a Young woman entered Thearin Ory recounted a Long tale of sorrow and begged the officers to give her a lodging in the station House for the night. Her intelligent countenance and simple and unassuming manners brought Forth the sympathy of capt. Nelson who kindly gave her the use of one of the private rooms attached to the station Hall. Finding that she was among friends she stated that she was a stranger in the City and that she had been induced to come hero by the Promise of marriage Given by one Robert Johnson a Soldier in co. A of the first artillery regiment. He had brought her hero and after repeatedly deferring the promised marriage deserted her but not without having first a comprised his purpose. She related All the particulars saying that she bad no friends in the City and did not dare to return to her relatives in the country. The poor girl was allowed to remain at Tho station House for a few Days at the end of which capt. Nelson gave her to the care of the county agent by whom she was taken to the county almshouse at Jefferson. Here she stay after she saw that it was a poor House to which she had been taken and she returned to the City next Day. She immediately repaired to the armory and again begged the officer to take her in. She manifested the deepest emotion and resolutely refused All Comfort and capt. Nelson saw that it was necessary to take some action by which the sufferings of the girl might be alleviated and also determined to take measures to bring her seducer to Justice. He again heard her Story questioned her on ail the particulars and obtained from her a full narrative of ber troubles. It appears that her name is a Atilda Buck and that she formerly resided at Cambridge Henry county where she had a brother and sister. About three months since while boarding at a hotel near that place she became acquainted with Johnson who was then stopping there on recruiting service. The Gay uniform excited the admiration of the girl and she became deeply attached to the Soldier. The latter proposed to the girl should come to Chicago and that they would be married there at the House of his parents. The other was elated at her lovers proposition and immediately commenced making preparations for her journey. On arriving hero the couple repaired to the Lake House where they remained one Day. Johnson then took her to a House which Lio Quot represented to be the residence of his parents but which is now known to be quite otherwise. The girl urged her Lover to name the Day of the marriage which he persistently refused until she finally saw his base motives. She then left him but he followed her and compelled her to go to the notorious Home Saloon on the. Corner of Clark and Jackson its. The girl remained there just Long enough to ascertain the nature of the House and then fled a second the Man however was still As much loved As Ever and though he Heather and stole her Money and jewelry she begged him again and again to marry her. Mostof the time he was obliged to be at the Camp where she visited him almost daily. At last be threw off All his assumed disguise told her that he did not love her and that she must become an inmate of a House of ill repute. The feelings of the girl were drowned in a flood of emotion. The condition into which she had been brought into was now comprehended. Seduced by her faithless Lover in the midst of a strange City what could she do ? she indignantly spurned his demands but continued to cling with emotion to the destroyer of her virtue. About this time he was arrested for participating in a Drunken bout and was sent to bridewell. The girl Learned his whereabouts and woman like carried him the few luxuries she could Purchase with her Money. Added to All this misfortune came letters from her brother and sister if Henry county addressed to Johnson and herself As a dear brother and sister a her friends not thinking for a moment that the two were not married. Her Supply of Money which bad already been considerably lessened by the drafts the base Johnson bad made upon it was now gone. She then repaired to the station Bouse As narrated above. On tuesday after she had returned to the Ampry from the almshouse she attempted to commit suicide by drinking a bottle of Ether. She was discovered in the and a physician sent for life was saved. She had prepared the was found addressed to Johnson upon a table in the room at the station House. A Robert a remember Tea you promised me when you brought me from Home. You have misused me badly. You know what i have done for you and Bow have you treated me now i bid you Good by forever in this world but i beg you to remember to be Bat you have made to me i fran you to keep my likeness and my sister s and do one thing for me write to any sister and Tell her that i have died. Now Robert. I must leave you but never ruin another girl As you have ruined me. I thought when i left Homo with you that i had a Friend but you have proved my enemy. You cannot Como before god and deny your promises a no never. When i am dead and gone remember what you have done. But i forgive you for it and i Hope that god will forgive you. If you give the love that belongs to me to any other girl i Pray that the judgment of god will follow you. Remember the promises that you have not fulfilled. Remember How you have misused me. Good Bye forever. Mrs. Matilda Johnson. The girl was soon enabled to recover by the administration of the proper Medicine. She appeared to be utterly reckless Rind while at one moment she would give Way to a flood of tears the next moment she would appear sullenly dignified. In person the girl presents a Graceful Carriage her features Are Comly and she is in appearance far above the Ordinary. She gives ber age at Nineteen. The Mao Johnson will be brought before the police court today and if not willing to make Good his promises of marriage instant or will be held to answer certain charges. The Way magicians work. The who astonished audiences lately did Only what a Heller had done Many years ago to crowds in this City. A correspondent of the Missouri Democrat gives an interesting account of the system of questions and answers used by these ingenious operators editors Missouri Democrat Robert Heller is nightly astonish ing hundreds of our citizens who Are anxious to for the privilege of being deceived. The gratified visages of Bis audience prove the truth of the old Couplet the pleasure is As great a it. Id being cheated As to bboat.�?�. In most of his tricks the spectators know their senses Are deceived in fact Heller Leiis them so. But for his a second sight he claims pre Eminence and boldly defies the world to produce an explanation. But for this haunting Challenge his a second sight would have seemed but another of his splendid deceptions. Many people however wow think there is some unnatural in it that if is a a mystery a and Robert Heller is possessed of supernatural Powers. As or. Heller cannot rightfully object i will with your kind permission Endeavor to show to our be fogged citizens that the a a mystery is not altogether inexplicable. In an old Book in my Possession i find some hints which with development and observation on my part remove All doubt from my mind that either Heller or his interesting boy Freddy Are in league with a Lauid the system of second bight is though Heller endeavours to deny it a system of pre concerted questions and answers. Tho same question differently arranged requires different answers thus Quot. 1 it Plain or ornamented ? . 2 it ornamented or Plain ? . A Thero Are questions relating to color precious stones metals wearing apparel jewelry amp a. As for instance a color is it . is the color . me color . it a color ? . color or yellow. the color ? . The following for metals Metal ? . is the Metal ver. A a. , me the Metal ? . the Metal ? of steel. Metal is it . And so on for the different articles mentioned above. There is also a list and a very extensive one for miscellaneous articles. A few examples will suffice a have i Here purse. A a _. is this toothpick. will Puzzle you ? court plaster. And so on almost indefinitely. By thus having questions and answers classified and arranged an article of any kind can be very accurately described requiring generally however a combination of the questions of different classes. Thus this for any purpose ? a. Of course a reticule. color is it . Takes an article out of the reticule and asks have i Here purse. me the color. takes Money out have i now ? Money-. A q.�?�?T1 cannot hear you. note. what value is it dollars. this the same ? dime. 1. Another article me now . immediately. A a handkerchief. it a color . Thus the reticule and All its contents Are described. Describe a piece of jewelry you Admire this ? a you know the Stone ? yes Cornelian. it a color a a White. Or. Heller endeavours by various expedients to conceal from his audience the1 fact that All Freddy a answers Are dependent upon the questions asked. He sometimes asks no questions at All. The audience will observe that he does not dispense with the question till Fred a Back is turned and he Fred within a few feet of the curtain. They will also observe that the articles or. Heller holds up Are not the Small ones concerning Ali id he had asked questions. This time they Are Large a hat i Muff a shawl a set of furs or something which can easily be seen by a person behind the curtain who is so near to Fred. As almost to be Able to whisper in his ears of course Fred done to fail to give the right name to the article. To discourage the idea that the question had anything to do with the answer he says a some persons think the last word of the questions i ask Are the key to the reply we will you Admire this say a the last word very emphatic. brooch. A say Means brooch Well Trya Gaiu. have i Here say ? purse. And so on always adding say and each time receiving a different answer. Do not the audience perceive that this word Here used is like Tho Blind in a tradesman a Mark it Means nothing do they not also perceive that the rest of the question is varied As different articles Are presented a not a bit of it. Poor innocent souls they paid their Money to be cheated and Theja would feel they were a a sold if they discovered the secret. And then when Fred is marched among the audience and Heller stands near the stage indicating that an answer is required by the clapping of the hands How is it done ? will or Heller then take whatever article is offered him no he goes from one to another of his confederates sitting near each other and receives from them articles with the succession of which Fred is beforehand acquainted of course at each clap of the hands Fred knows what he is to cry out. And again without even a word or clap of the hand or tinkling of a Bell Fred tells what at that instant Heller has Laid his hand on. Will the audience again notice that these Are articles which h. May touch without moving around much a lady a Bonnet a gents coat a hat a fan &c., the order of which known beforehand Are touched at intervals during which Fred May count say Twenty and Fred of course tells his wondering and open mouthed auditors what they Are. Now messes editors 1 must apologize forthe length to which this communication has run. The subject however is one which next to the a a War a is exciting this Community it present More than any other and your thousands of readers will i have no doubt feel As much obliged to you for the publication of this a expose a As will.

A the reign of terror in 1798,�?� while there Are Many things done now which Are unheard of in America there is much though few remember it which is but a repetition of what happened just sixty three years ago in the administration of John Adams. Availing themselves of the furious War cry against France the federalists of that Day proceeded very much after the fashion of the Federal republicans of the present Day. The a alien Law was passed to enable the president to get rid of some certain troublesome democrats of foreign birth. The a sedition Law was passed to allow the administration to a a suppress the democratic newspapers of the Day. Many of the democratic editors were fined and imprisoned for opposing the War policy of John Adams Many papers were suspended a opposition was almost silenced in gon Gress the democratic leaders All fled from its Halls except Albert Gallatin a even Jefferson was obliged to shut himself up for a while at his Home in Monti hello and almost suspend correspondence lest his letters should be opened by the secret agents of the administration which sought occasion to. Persecute him under the a sedition hundreds fell away from the democratic party under the pretence of a no party support the government a some straggled Back afterwards like the prodigal son glad to feed on the husks of democracy others strayed along gloomily in the quagmires of a Black cockade federalism a democratic members of Congress were insulted at theatres and groaned at in Public meetings. The Hareas Corpus was partially suspended and All opposition was attempted to be silenced by mobs or suppressed by the Strong Arm of the administration. But All this availed nothing in the end. The people arose in their might after two years through the ballot Box and at the presidential election of 1800-1, the democratic party triumphed Jefferson was elected president and John Adams party and his measures alien and sedition Laws and All perished and became a by word and a hissing Ever afterwards the prison a doors were opened the a fort la Fay Ettesv of that Day were compelled to disgorge their victims democratic presses we re restored and for just sixty years the Constitution and the Union were preserved and the whole country grew and flourished and was prosperous and Happy As no other country Ever was till the so called a Republican party obtained Power on the 4th of March 1861.

Stanton a business Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun gives the following illustrations of the manner in which the new Secretary of War dispatches business. The occasion was the Day for miscellaneous applications a a Good crowd was on hand of course but the manner in which he disposed of them in a reasonable length of time was refreshing to behold both As a remarkable evidence and example of business capacity and a a thing unique and enter Taining. There were no Ante room or red tape a traction or Stanton Stard. Ing up and receiving All parse in a Ingle room one after another As they could reach him. Arring the rest was the colonel of a regiment the had called to make complaint that his regiment had not been mounted As cavalry As they expected to be. The Secretary remarked that they had More cavalry now than they knew what to do with eighty regiments when fifty were ample. But said the colonel another regiment has got the horses we were to have. To this is a horse Case you want me to a horse one set and mount another a responded the Secretary. A one horse Case is generally Long enough but this would be too much. I can to undertake by and by came an ingenious. Patriot with a Patent breast Flate sure to turn a Rifle Ball. The Secretary could hardly see the use of it As there had been very Little shooting done so Lar in the War and the fact was they wanted Bere Afier that men should go in and be shot at. But was the invention of any value of yes a says the inventor it had been tested the Secretary thought however that the surest test would be afforded by the patriotic inventor donning the Vest and allowing a trial by marksmen. A quite to the contrary of these instances was the presentation of a paper by a Soldier a Reguly of who when asked said it was his application for a second Lieuten Antsy As he had served Many years in the army faithfully mostly on the frontiers and thought he was quite As deserving of the position As Many upon whom such honors were a being cheerful attention and a favourable response were Given by the Secretary with an Oxx Der to the clerk to file the application and bring his attention to the Case on the occasion of the first vacancy.the mad Stone.

Among the remedies to which i resorted was a mad atone. The Stone used by me is in the Possession of or. Blake at Lisbon a station on the Clinton and Cedar Railroad in Linn county. It is about As Laid Geas the doubled fist of a Small Man is Brown on All surfaces save the lower one which is White and is full of vein a minute holes set with the utmost regularity in scalloped circles and extending entirely through the Stone. After being soaked in a warm solution of Potash and after the wounds had been thoroughly excoriated the White surface was gently applied and the Stone immediately filled itself with matter of a Light Green color. When full it was removed and cleaned by Potash a and again applied the operation continuing for some four hours until it would draw no longer. It is worthy of remark that the Stone would Abosi b nothing but the Green matter entirely refusing the blood which was running freely from the wounds. The sensation produced was first that of a file roughly drawn Over the wounds and after that of Needles darting from places adjacent to the bite and from other parts of the body towards the Stone. Or. Blake is a Plain straightforward Man having none of the characteristics of a quack about him arid is a Cleiv Gyman of the methodist episcopal Church. He evidently has the utmost Confidence personally in the Virtues of his Stone and relates numerous instances of unquestionable hydrophobia cured by it. Some of the parties cured reside in Cordovi us some in Muscatine and Louisa counties in this state and one a lady in Muff Joketa in Jackson county who he says was cured on the thirtieth Day after the bite and after she had experienced two slight spasms. It is but proper to remark that within ten minutes after i was bitten the wounds were thoroughly burned out with Hydro Chlois in acid by or. Gamble. Time Only will determine whether a cure has been effected and if effected others Are fully As capable As i am of judging of the remedy which produces the f until the present time i have considered the mad Stone an unmitigated Humbug but my scepticism is not shaken. At All events were i bitten again i would travel thousands of Miles if possible to find the same Stone. Isaac m. Talmage. Be Claire Scott co., Iowa Jan. 17.
