ocratic Presidential horoscopo with
tlie lollowing remits: "Mr. lien,

with a pretty strong vote, but lulling

them, thus forming a protty strong
quadrangle. The Convention can
easily spend twenty lour or forty
eight Lours balloting on these candi
dates without a choice, Pendletou
and his friends can prevent a choice
snd prolong the game indefinitely.
At tho proper time, when it his be
come evident that neither Tilden,
Hendricks, Thurman nor Bayard can
be nominated, and when tho Conven
tion is exhausted, Pendleton s nanio
will be presented ill a very ellostive
and dramatic manner. If in tho chair

Seymour was iu 18G3, and a Vice-
President .put iu his place who is la-
vorablo to his nomination. By pro-1
concerted arrangement his nomina
tion will bo received with enthusias

Convention will see in him the only
man who can cut tho gordiau knot

The Secrotary ot tho Treasury has
sent to tho Senate fiunnco committee
a communication from Director Liu
dcrman, recommending the repeal of
the law which makes the trndo dollar
a legal tender to tho amount of $5.
Linderman argues that it should not
a legal tender at all, becauso individ
uals can now make a profit of nearly
5 pei cent, if they can use it at par,
aud thus torce it into circulation,
while at a discount it causes incon
venience in retail transactions. Ho
recommends, however, that silver
dollars be coined of the same stand
ard as the present minor silver coins,
and that this proposed new coin be
made a legal tender for amounts not
exceeding $10. It will be observed
that these recommendations are di
rectly antagonistic to the pending bill

, Ben IIIII'. I'liibl with Yancey.
From the Cincinnati Gazette.
The editor of tho Nashville Amer
ican corrects tho statement that Ben
Hill, then a rebel Senator, struck
t Wm. L Yancey, tho fite-eaK-r, on the
back of the head with an lukstanu in
the Confederate Congress, but reiieats
the story that during a heated de
bate Hill called Yancey a liar, and
the latter sprang forward to strike
Hill, who caught Yancey and threw
him violently over a desk. Hill was
much tho larger and stronger man,
and Yancey tho more active. In the
fairhis spine was injured, and he lay
unconscious on tho floor, with blood
oozing from his lips. Ho was taken
away, "nd the members tried to keep
tho matter secret, and did prevent it
from beintr known lor six months.
Yancey never recovered; he drooped
from day to day, became hopeless,
listless, and vacant, and passed quiet
ly and calmly away. Says the Amer-
iron: "He died without a hope of
the success ol the Southern republic
he had aspired to found and govern,
and for which had labored day and
night for twenty-five years.

The cominittc on political action submit

The Successful Physician.
, From the St. Loui Ulobo.
There Is probably uo muu to whom tho
community owe so much as to the honest.
ruir-spoken physician, who does his actual
duty both to himself und to his patients.
Kually skilllul physicians are not so numor- '
ous that tbuir virtues need no mention, and
hence the advertisement of Dr. Ii. V.
Pierce, of Iiuilulo, miy well claim thu
reader's attention. Dr. 1'iercu is a type of
a class ot men who ob'uin success by care-
tul anu well directed ellort, not attempting
too much, or creating false ideas as to abili
ty. The only reliable physician in these
days of complicated disorders and high-
pressure livinif is the "hpeialist, tbe man '
who understands bis one brunch of busi
ness. .Such iu his line is Dr. fierce. For
the benefit of bis readers he has written a
"Common Seose Medical Adviser," which
is well worth reading by those who need
such a work. With a strict business honor,
high professional skill, reasonable fees, and a
large corps of compelant ussistunls, Dr.
Pierce will doubt!ss make his name familiar
as "household words."
David Davis, of Illinois, justice of tbo
Supreme Court, is beginning to bo talked
about as a Democratic freniileiilial candi
date. Several prominent . Duiiiucnits in
Congress have arranged a combination to
have hist name before tbe convention. They
rely on bis bard money views, and his politi
