A VALUABLE RELIC.
Mrs. W. G. Ross, of this city, has a
most interesting and valuable relic of
colonial times in the shape of a copy
of the Boston Gazette and Countru
Journal, of date Monday, March
12th, 1770. Though the fragilo sheet
of paper is 118 years old it is in a good
state ot preservation. Singular that
a leaf of paper should survive all the
vicissitudes of over a oentury; it is n.
sort of satire on human life that this
light paper leaf, the sport of every
passing breeze, should bo in exist
ence, when human life of that period
and all that surrounded aud supplied
it have crumbled into indistinguish
Though published more than six
years previous to the Declaration of
Independence, every line of this dim
old paper breathes the spirit of Amer
ican liberty. It denounces English
imposition and tyranm, publishes
strong resolutions regarding the re
fusal of the inhabitants of Boston to
consume goods of English importa
tion, and quaintly calls in question
the English governmental policy of
that day. It publishes a graphic; de
scription of the Boston massacre of
March 5th, 1770, one week boforo the
issue ot the paper, and gives a rude
wood cut of four coffins, with the vic
tims ot the British soldiery's murder
ous guns lying therein.
There are some funny advertise
ments in this old paper that are in
strango contrast with the earnest se
riousness of its reading articles and

spheres. New York, April 20. Funeral serv
ices were held this morning in Trini
ty chapel, over the remains of Boscoe
Conkling. The hour fixed for the fu
neral service was ten o'clock. Long
before that hour people began to
gather in Twenty-fourth street
Shortly after nine o'clock a plain
hearse and eleven carriages drove up
to the door. From the carriages de
scended the pall bearers and friends,
and Conkling's family, who entered
the hou80 and proceeded to the room
in which the body lay. On the coffin
rested a large bunch of white roses,
lilies and immortelles. Below them
there was a large green wreath knot
ted with purple ribbons. At 0:53
o'clock the coffin was lifted from the
stands and borne from the room to
the waiting hearse by the undertak
er's assistants. Waiting on the other
side were the pall bearers. They
were judge Shipman, Mayor Abram
S. Hewitt, S. L. M. Barlow, Clarence
A. Seward, Manton Marble, Senator
John P. Jones, Senator Don Cameron,
Judge Wm. A. Wallace, Walker
Church, and Isaac H. Bailey. They
entered three carriages preceding the
hearse, and the carriages and hearse
slowly moved down the street, while
the other carriages slowly drew up,
one by one, in front of the house. In
them entered Mrs. Conkling, sup
ported by the arm ot Col. Fred A.
Conkling, his daughter, Mrs. Oak
man, and her husband, Walter G.
Oakman, Col. Fred D. Grant, and his
mother, Mrs. U. S. Grant, Mrs. Jesse

their husbands and a few other inti

No sermon was preached. The en
tire assemblage arose after prayer and
joined in singing "Rock of Ages."
This being finished, tho choir boj-3
walked slowly down the aisle to tho
muBic of Felton's chant, followed by
the pall bearers and mourners. The
hearse was followed by carriages
bearing the relatives, and driven di
rectly to the grand central depot
whero a special train was taken for
Utica, at which place the final sep
ulture will take place to-morrow.

A FATAL EXPLOSION.
London, April 20. Five persons
were injured in an explosion in St.
Helena colliery at Workington last
evening. They have since died.
The modes of death's approach are
various, and statistics show conclu
sively that more persons die from dis
eases of tho Throat and Lungs than
any other. It is probable that every
one. without exception, receives vast
numbers of Tubercle Germs into the
system and where these germs fall
upon suitable soil they start into life
and develop, at first slowly and is
shown by a slight tickling sensation
in the throat and if allowed to con
tinue their ravages they extend to the
lungs producing Consumption and to
tho head, causing Catarrh. Now all
this is dangerous and if allowed to
proceed will in time causo death. At
the onset you must aot with prompt
ness; allowing a cold to go without
your attention is dangerous and may
lose you your life. As soon as you

your Throat, Lungs or Nostrils, ob

scratch every night until I was raw, then the
next night the scales, being formed mean

I consult all the doctors in the country, but
