WHEELER, EDITOR. 9;Buaines letters should be addressed to the Publishers. Whibju k Lthdi. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1866. Political. The St. Louis News says the effect of the Republican victory in Missouri is seen in' the rapid'increase of immigration Immigrants who had camped along the Mississippi, in Illinois, waiting to see the result of the election, are now crossing the river ' in great numbers and purchasing farms and homes. At a recent election in Galveston, Texas, for Distriet Attorney and Judge, 1070 votes were cast, the largest number polled at any election since the secession of Texas. Charles S. DeLong is canvassing Nevada for the purpose of securing General Nyes place in the IT. S. Senate. He accuses Nye of having received $3000 for pardoning a . man while he was Governor, and cf having Provided our PecPle wiU- subscribe an ade-pocketed $8000 belonging to the Indians. I luate 6um for its endowment. A committee A "Washington special says that Secretary McCulloch will not object to the removal of Commissioner Rollins from the Internal Revenue Department in case the President - will appoinl David A.' Wells to the place. An effort will be made at the next session of Congress to take - the appointment of the Revenue Commissioners from the President and give it to Congress. The Fbesdmen ik Georgia. There are npw in Georgia 48 schools for freedmen, with 64 teachers and 2755 pupils. Of these teachers 23 are colored and 40 are white, and of the scholars 1109 are males and 1646 females. . The freedmen themselves are sus-' taining 34 of these schools, with an equal number of teachers and 1080 scholars, and they partly sustain 14 other school. During the month of October they paid about $1000 for the purpose of education, which shows that they are willing to pay for their education when they' have the ability. The number of schools and of scholars is rapidly increasing in Georgia, and will continue to increase as the freedmen realize more fully the benefits to be conferred upon them by the schools. There is still considerable antagonism between the whites and blacks in Georgia, and murders of the freedmen are of frequent occurrence in many of the coun ties. A Permanent- Investment. The N ,Y. Sun says: The English holders of reb. el bonds still seem . to be troubled with tho hallucination that they will some day realize from their investment in the defunct Southern Consederacy. This delusion manifests itself at intervals and under different phases. According to our accounts, the af-flicted bondholders are just now laboring under the phantasy that they can in some way attach the money due to the United States from England upon the Alabama claims, for the liquidation of their claim - upon the deceased S. C. It does not appear just how they propose to arrange this little matter, but they apparently imagine that tho United States is an idiot. Such is lu nacy. The rebel bondholders have about the same prospect of getting back their investment in the Confederacy that the latter has of coming to life again ; not so much as that, in fact, for the ex-rebels have repudiated both these bonds and the silly Englishmen who invested money in them. The only consolation that we can give the bond-. holders is the assurance that their investment is perfectly good, so long as they don t want'to use the money. For a secure, permanent investment we know of none better than theirs. The humiliation caused by the election ol John Morissey to Congress is somewhat lessened by the consolation 'that the English cannot cast a stone of reproach at us. For it is a historical fact that John Gully, who was one of the most noted prize fighters of his day, and who fought several fierce battles with Pearce, the game chicken, and Greg' son, in 1805, 1807 and 1808, was elected as a . member of the British Parliament in 1832: and sat in theEouse of Commons as the representative of the borough of Pontefract until 1837, when he declined further political honor. George Francis Train has written a letter descriptive of the Pacific Railroad excursion. . Onthe trip the party passed a prairie dog village, of which Train says : A million dogs. Two Bhot. Ancona kills a dog. - Painter a rattlesnake. Five hundred shots and two killed. I shot none, because I could not see what harm they had done. They were not rebels. How peculiar they live. A prairie dog, an owl and a rattlesnake, and in one hole. ' A radical. Conservative and Copperhead living in one Happy Family 1 Betters from Mascali, Sicily, of the 19th of October, mention that an unfortunate landholder, who was reputed wealthy, was taken, and in order to compel him to divulge where he had secreted his riches, he was placed under a wine-press and literally squeezed to death. At a school in Connecticut there was a janitor who took care of the school build ings, and who also kept boarders. One of the boarders owed him $20, and as a receipt for $20 or over requires a two-cent stamp, the man gave the boy a receipt for $19.99 and gave him back one penny, thus saving one cent. If anybody can beat that in mean ness, lets hear of it. Amherst College is soon to have the largest meteorite possessed by any cabinet in America. A mass of meteoric iron, weighing 535 pounds, found high up the Rocky Mountains, and secured for the college by Mr. J. Alden Smith, late of Hewiston, is now on iU way from Denver City, Colorado. It was shipped at St. Joseph, Mo., on the 3d instant, and will soon arrive at its destination. Captain Webster, of the U. S. revenue steamer Mahoning, has been awarded by the British Government, a gold chronometer and chain, in acknowledgement of his services to British seamen in distress during the winter of 1865-66. The Bangor Orphan Asylum. JTo the Editor of the Whig : You have called the attention of jour readers to the appeal from Rath to aid in establishing a Home for the destitute chil-dren of those gallant soldiers and sailors, whose lives were sacrificed in defence of their country, and havo expressed tho wish that tho appeal might meet with a generous response. Probably no one would object to the fulfilment of that wish if it be done by those who leel able to let their charity do its blessed work abroad, as well as at home, but the citizens of Bangor generally, may well be excused from answering this call, when it is remembered that there is now a strenuous effort being made to establish a Childrens Home in this city, in which special provis- ion is to be made for the care and support of tho orphan children of soldiers and sailors. It can hardly be necessary to remind the public, that a liberal hearted gentleman, formerly of Bangor, now of Boston, has promised to erect in our city, a building suitable for the above purpose, at a cost of $12,000, of gentlemen and ladies have the matter in charge, and it is understood that they have decided that $25,000, with the property now owned by the Asylum, will yield a sufficient sum, in addition to the yearly subscriptions, to support such an'institulion. Of this sum only $10,000 have yet been subscribed. The time has passed for doing any thing about the new building this year, yet the raising the money ought not to be longer deferred, for the old Asylum building must soon be e.ther extensively repaired, or its use for that object abandoned. We have heard it asserted by those who ought to know, that whed the $25,000 is subscribed, and the Home erected, the Bangor Sanitary Association, (not yet defunct, for they have an executive committee still in being,) intends to appropriate a band-some sum, from the fund still in their hands, to this very object, viz : to provide for the support of the orphans of soldiers and sailors in this Home for destitute children. Under these circumstances, Mr. Editor, what shall tho citizens of Bangor do? Send their money to Bath ? or shall they, by immediately filling up the required subscription make it possible for our city to bo bene-fitted by the generous offer of Mr. Pitcher ? Is the latter course any less patriotic or less truly liberal than the-former ? Possibly some gentlemen like to receive frequent calls from a ladies begging committee! ! We should judge so, from the reply so often given, Cant attend to it to-day am so very busy call again. If Bangor is determined not to do herself . with blood vessels, nerves honor on this occasion, perhaps those among anc absorbants. One of the obvious usc3 is to se-1 1 & I Crete and DrcDare the bile. It lilretvi&a us, who carry the cause of the destitute or phans very near their hearts, had better send their contributions to Bath. Whatever is to be done, twere well it were done quickly. Ifov. 20. Capture of Railroad Robbers. The Louisville Journal gives the following account of the capture of a portion of the gang of thieves and desperadoes who threw a train of cars off the track of the Nashville Railroad last week and robbed the passengers: One of tho party, Stephen Conwell, a young man of about 20, made a full confession. He says that two men, residing near Franklin, named King and Finn, conceived the idea. These men sought allies, and got teri men besides a negro, who proved a lead- ing spirit in the whole affair. The partv I pr0(uc'DB a fiw of bile, met at a mill about four miles from Frank-I , , lin, where they matured their plans. They Fldmon Syrup Seaweed Tonic, aud Man-then rode down towards the railroad, when drake Pitts, one of them proposed to stop at Conwells t'11 strengthen the system, purify the blood, and , .si v 1 . . . ripen and heal ulcers on the lungs. home until be could borrow his pistols. I A volume would be required, to give a brief ac-Gonwell refused to loan his pistols, and was I count of the remarkable cures performed by Dr, anxious to know what was going on. Final- 1"1 " J ly they urged him to go along, telling him the whole plan. He accompanied them to the place on the road where it was agreed that the track should be torn up. Here the negro showed them how to pry up the track, and they forced the rail on one side out, but had not time to remove the other, when they heard the train approaching. So they piled some loose rails on tbe track, and moved back about three hundred yard3 to await the train. Conwell says the train thundered along in the darkness at full speed, and when it struck the rails on tho track it seemed to him as though it jumped fifty feet. Then he wished that he was safe at home As soon as the locomotive rolled down the hank, the gang rushed up beside the cars and fired, each man a shot, up in tbe air.1 They had agreed to do this to frighten the passengers, and if any one returned the fire they were to shoot into the train. No one fired, and the men entered tbe cars, leaving two men and the negro outside as a guard, while they robbed the passengers. As soon as they had finished this they started for the express car, but found that the car had fallen on its side, and that the only open door was on the under side. Before they could force the oth er door open the whole car was on lire. They then rified the baggage car of what they could carry, mounted their horses and rode off four miles, when they stopped, plundered the baggage that they had and divided the spoils. Conwell says that when the division was made each man had $11 in money. They then dispersed, each going to his home: Soon after the robbery some detectives were put on the track, and some of the military were sent down there to hunt tho matter out. Tbe citizens of Franklin extended every assistance in thoir power, and by their knowledge of persons and places, enabled the officers to get all the gang except the negro He cannot be found. New York, Nov. 21. The Convention of Life Insurance Companies of the United States, which was organized at Hartford, Conn., on the 12th of September last, met in the rooms of the Chamber of Commerce in this city, at noon to-day. The object of the convention is to discuss affairs of interest to all tbe companies, and especially to take action to secure uniform laws regulating life insurance. Nearly all the companies in the United States were represented. Special to Boston Adv. Patriotic Zeal of the Venetians. Only sixty-nine votes were given at Venice against union with Italy ; 641,758 In favor. Forty-five provinces have announced the amounts subscribed by them to the Dew national loan. They were asked for a first installment of 77,400,000 lire ; they have actually subscribed 127,000,000 lire sixty-four millions subscribed by individuals. N. Y. Post. A young man named Charles Thompson who says he robbed a broker in Detroit of $4000 three years ago, gave himself up to the police of Cincinnati on Thursday, saying his conscience troubled him so that he oould not conceal the crime any longer. He, had spent the $4000 in Canada, whither he had fled. "Washington, Nov. 21, 1866. The Republican associations of this city, without distinction of color, are perfecting their arrangements for their welcome to Congress. They propose to have a procession of Union Leagues and boys in blue, an address of welcome by General Logan, responses by Senators and Representatives, and a banquet in tne evening. Largo delegations of boys in blue from Philadelphia and Baltimore are expected. Western Republicans arriving here are earnestly urging the impeachment of the President. They propose as the first step the election of Senator Wade of Ohio as President protemporo of the Senate. The Republican of this morning has a very severe article on the attempt to remove Mr. Davis from the Assessorsbip of the First District, and designates the Democrat who attempted to engineer it as the Vallandig-ham of Massachusetts, who ought not to be tolerated by any loyal official of this Government, especially at the expense of the I Conservative Republicans. Special to the I Boston Journal The Charleston Mercury was issued Monday morning, for the first time since February, 1865. It admits editorially that the war annihilated the theory of States Eights, and proposes to devote itself in the futuro to tho internal development of Southern interests.

Certain Care for Diteased Liver and the manA Dangerous Maladies which are caused by a morbid condition of that organ . To give the public a clear understanding of the mode in which SCHENCKS Mandrake Pills produce those wonderful effects which are attested by thousands of reliable witnesses, we present a brief DESCRIPTION OF THE HUMAN LIVER and its functions, which will make the operation of this popular medicine perceptible to every mans understanding. crete and prepare the bile. It likewise'fiUers" the blood and separates that fluid from all impurities. How indispensably necessary to health is the proper performance of this fanction I If the liver is diseased, it cannot purify the blood, and if that is sent back through the lungs, brain and other parts in a mobid condition, it must cause jaundice, biliousness, obstruction of the kidneys, gravel, and many other complaints more or less painful and dangerous, but the least of them quite enough to make a man sick and uncomfortable, and unfit for the performance of any of the duties of life. This unhealthy State of the system very often ends in pulmonary consumption. The circulation of the blood is conducted in this manner: The heart sends the vital current down through the arteries ; it passes through the flesh, taking up all impurities in its progress : then the stream of blood flows backward through the veins, and passes to the liver to be puri&ed. It is impossible to cure consumption, scrofula, or scarcely any other kind of ulceration while that important organ, the liver, is diseased. It is for that reason that regular physicians rarely cure consumption. They usually begin their treatment with the use of some cough medicine, the basis of which is morphia or opium in some shape, which locks up the liver instead of relaxing the secretions, giving a tone to Schencks medicino, viz: Pulmonic Syrup, Seaweed Tonic, and M andrake Pills all of which are accompanied by full directions for the use ot them. DR. SCHEKCK will be professionally at bis rooms every week. 32 Bond street. New York, and 35 Hanover street, Boston, from 9 A. M. until 3 P. M.

Whicli is tlie Best Company to Insure in? t S the question that interests all persons whocon-t template effecting Insurance. This question stands at tho head of our notice, and .all facts which tend to give the correct answer to this ques tion are interesting to the publie We eesire the true answer, and will use aU the mns within our power to obtain it, and thank the Connecticut Mutual, through their general agents, for so iar noticing our advertisement as to institute the com parison. , They say In a recent statement published by the New York Life Insurance Company, they IV. a comparison of business transacted in the otate ol Massachusetts by four leading Life offices, Irom which they derive the consoling fact that they do the greatest business in the State. As they have honored us with tho notice, we drop the other Companies, that the Connecticut Mutual may have the full advantage of the comparison, a The New Business of these Companies in theCity of Boston, for 1864, was as lollows: New York Li fc, 51.2,600 Connecticut Mutual, 14,500 New Business for 1865: ' New York Life, Connecticut Mutual, (printed in our adv. by mistake, 31800.) New business in the whole State of Massachusetts, for 1865. New York Life, Connecticut, 1,030, i0a These factsshould be consoling to the mana agers of anv Company. Would it not be gratify ing if tho Connecticut Mutual could exhibit the same results in the same localities ? Their consolation is derived from the fact that there are places in which they are doing a large business. It the persons in those regions understand the subject of Life Insurance and financial matters better than they do in Bos'on or in the State of Massachusetts, would it not bo interesting to name the localities ? Is it not rather Irom the tact that the plan of Life Insurance, as worked by the Connecticut Mutual, is not understood, that enables them to succeed ? It is known to all agents, and to none betterthan those of the Connecticut Mutual, that in a'majority of cases the parties rely rather upon the integrity of the agent than their own knowledge of the com parative standing of the Companies. Now that the Connecticut Mutual has been so kind as to make the comparison, we hope it will be full and fair.and to that end we will join in the examination of the Reports of the Couimusioners of New York and Massachusetts, with the statements and correspondence of underwriters and financial men, and the Connecticut Mutual may then perhaps discover why their business in Boston and ir the ftatc of Massachusetts is not so large as in some other localities. The correspondence between CemmisrionerBarnes and Dr. Phelps, then Secretary, but now President of the Connecticut Mutual, was then generally circulated and well understood. (I he correspondence mav be found in the New York Reports of 1864t which may be seen at this office.) If these reports hod been a freely circulated and fully read in all other localities as they were in Boston, they would probably have had the same results. W e will only add that in 1861, 62 and 61, the New York Life issued more policies than any other company in the United States; that in 1864 and 'c5 its cash receipts for premiums exceed those of the Connecticut Mutual; and its excess of income over expenditure in I8bo(sce York Commis ioners Report, page 13u) was $1,042,812 90 Connecticut Mutual, 958,837 69 Ratio of Cash Expenses to Cash Receipt New York Life 16.80, Conn, Mutual 20.52, Losses in 1865 as given in New York Commission ers Report, which was made two months later than the report quoted from by the aforesaid Agent : New York Life, $473,522 Connecticut Mutual, 608,112 We will issue, in a few days, a circular instituting a comparison, in part, and trust that through the efforts of both parties tho public may be enabled to answer the question propounded at the head ot this article.
