Franklin on fligotad Sunday Laws.
Just nbw, when an attempt is be-
ing made to force the old Connecti-
cut Blue Laws upon a liberal, en-
lightened and progressive people, to
come across such n letter as the fol-
lowing, written by that philosopher
Benjamin Ffankhn, is peculiarly re-
freshing. It has Jus! been found in
the New HaYeft Colony Historical
Society, a'nd Was written to Jared
Irtgersoll in 1762:
Phllade, Dec. ti, 1762.
Dear Sir: I thank you for your
kind Congratulations. It gives me
pleasure to hear from an old friend;
it will give me much more pleasure
to see him. I hope therefore noth-
ing will prevent the Journey you
propose for next Summer and the
Favor you intend me of a Visit. I
believe I must make a Journey early
in the Spring to Virginia, but pui-
pose being back again before the hot
weather. You will be kind enough
to let me know beforehand what
time you expect to be here, that I
maj’ not be out of the way, for
that Would mortify me exceedingly.
I should be glad to know what it is
that distinguishes Connecticut Re-
ligion from common Religion—com-
municate, if you please, some of
these particulars that you think
will amuse me as a virtuoso.
When I traveled in Flanders I
thought of your excessively strict ob-
servance of Sunday, and that a man
could hardly travel on that day
among you upon his lawful occa-
sions, without Hazard or Punish-
ment, while where I was every one
travelled, it he pleased, or diverted
himself in any other wav, and in the
afternoon both high and low went to
the Play of the Opera, where there
was plenty of Singing, Fiddling and
Dancing. I looked round tor God s
Judgments, but saw no signs of
them. The Cities were well built
and full of Inhabitants, the Markets
wirfi Plenty, the People well favored
and well clothed: the Fields well till-
ed ; the Cattle fat and strong ; the
Fences, Houses and Windows all in
Repair; and no Old Tenor anywhere
in the Country ; which would almost
make one suspect that the Deity is
not so angry at that offence as a New
I left our Friend Mcjackson well.
And I had the great Happiness of
finding my little family, well when I
came home ; and my friends as cor-
dial and more numerous than ever.
May ever Prosperity attend you and
yours.—“I am Dear 1? l ieud
Found at Last.
San Francisco, Avgust5.—Some
parties in this city who have been
working up the matter for sometime
part, have discovered the wreck of
the steamer Brother Jonathan, which
foundered oM Point St. George, near
Crescent City, July, 1865. She lies in
an upright position,in about twenty-
two fathoms of water, about fi:ty
fathoms from the submerged wreck
on which she is supposed to have
struck. There were about a million
of dollars in treasury notes and bull-
ion in her safe, and the tinders are
fitting out an expedition for the re-
covery. The treasure belonged to
the government, whose claim is held
to have elapsed on the expiration of
ten years after the loss.
London, August 5.—A French-
man named Guerin has been arrest-
ed, charged with threatening to as-
sassinate Francis Chei Petrel, Secre-
tary of the late Prince Imperial, if
not paid money due him for promot-
ing the success of the last plebiscite.
A Kissingen dispatch denies, on
good authority, that anv arrange-
ment has been concluded for a settle-
ment of the religious question at
issue between Germany and the
Vatican, and adds that Bismarck
will not yield any essential point In

As an eleeant hair dressing stands
Porker’s Hair Balsam, deservedly popu-
lar lor the beautilul hair It produces, and
its clensing and healing properties.
Commencing at the roots, it promotes a
luxurient growth, original youthful color
giving a soft, rich and lustrous appear-
ance ot great beauty. It is pleasantly
cooling to the scalp, clenses it from
dandruff, cures itching and humors, and
stops falling of the hair. It is perfectly
harmless, exquisitely perftimed, never
soils the skin or gums the hair, and
pleases everybody by its many excellent
and attractive qualities. A patron as-
sures us he has used twelve digerent hair
pieparations, and that Parker’s Hair
Balsam surpasses them all. Sold in
large bottles at only 50 cents aud $1.00
by all first-class druggists.

This thriving new town, located ten
mi'es west of Deinson, on the D. & P- R-
R., by it* natural location, will comwand

At this point centers a number of the
main lines of thoroughfare from Western
and Northern Tevas and the Indian Ter-
ritory. Several of the principal ferries on
Red River lie just north and welt of this
place, and the road* from each passes
here. It lies right enrouteof the immense
Immigrant travel from the North and
East, and this will be the first town they
strike alter traversing the long route
across the Ii dian Territory. This point
is the center of the
GREAT GRAIN GROWING SECTION
and thousands of bushels ol Wheat, Corn,
Oats, etc., will be marketed here. Just
north of town the celebrated “Preston
Bend” ot Red River, will pour into this
market thousands of bales of Cotton,
while the Indian trade from the Valley
ot the Red River, and the Washita, the
Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations, will he
of the greatest importance. I’ottsiille

Marlin Springs. Georgetown, Preston
Bend, and all points in the Western In-
dian Territory. A stage line will be es-
tablished at once to Tishomingo and oth-
er points. The main feature of this town
will be the stock business and its attend-
ant interest. The railway company have
already built extensive stock yards, and
this will be the main station of North

inus, and stage lines connect with Wliites-
