Tho sale of quack nostrums is undoubt
edly one of the greatest evils of the day.
It is at tho same time most astonishing
that so glariug an outrage upon common
sense and common decency should be tol
erated, much less supported. Rnfc such
is the state of things,not only in this couu
try, but in England and nearly every oth
er country of the globe. It seems- to be
true that all a man neM.ls do in this coun
try to make himself rich is to spend a lit
tlo money in advertising some; new name,
attributing marvelous properties "to the
compound for which it stands, and speedi
ly the gold will begin to pour into his
pockets. The quack-niediciue trade, like
the blue-glass mania, which was really
one branch of the quack -medicine busi-J
ncss, an ingenious new departure, may
fairly be considered as a "foolometer,"
irhich accurately gauges thc degree of
still ticulturc attaiued by the civilization
of tho day, - -
The Sanitarian states, that at a Tccent
convention of pharmacist in England it
was proposed to take legalSteps for lim
iting the "wholesale poisoning of the pub
lic by patent medicines. It was proposed
that even if it be impossible altogether to
suppress the reaction of dishonest quack
ery upon vulgar superstition, the venders
of nostrums be compelled to divulge the
composition of their wares, and prevented
from publishing mischievous and menda
cious advertisements concerning them.

FENIAN RAID ON POCKET-BOOKS.
Thc Onjanization Trying to Increase the

Special Dispatch to the New York Times.
A careful inquiry along the Canada
border, in the towns of Northern New
York and Vermont, reveals an utter lack
ed of fact in the reports recently furnish
ed to the press concerning Fenian demon
stations in that locality. A prominent
Fenian, well informed regarding the sta
tus of that organization, divulges the
cause of statements by explaining that
fhojlistricts mentioned were visited by
emissaries from New York City, who
commingled with the various societies
throughout this and other States, aud en
deavored to" enthuse the metnlwrs by in
flammatory representations. The senti
ments at these gatherings were "adroitly
exaggerated in the preseuco of press agents
so that a fictitious agitation could be se
cured, on the heels of which were to fol
low urgent appeals in behatf of the noto
rious skirmishing ftvud. The spirit of tho
whole movement, according to bis state
ment, was a cleverly designed raid on
Fenian purses and sympathies rather
than any aggressive venture against
Canadian possessions or contentment.

Mks. CICERO V. HARRIS,
Editor and I'eoprif.tnr.
The Daviflsou Recorfl.
The Davidson Record, well known io the
people of Davidson county as. their campaign
uaner ot l-ih, is desi"iieu lo meet a public
want of the business men and of the intertstH oi
the countv. The time has come when almost
every county finds it indispensable to have ii
public jmmial of its own to represent its inter
tsts in the viiriuiu ail'iirs of busines., local and
general. There is no county in the State
would not be irreallv b.-ne!ilel l v a tnnrinil
within its bounds especially devoicd to tlie pro
motion of the local interests of iLe ( oinmunily,
Sucli a jmper appeuls very Mtonciv to ibe par
tiality and pride of the -cction it serves; and
every citizen should jtive it his coiinU-nance
and. support it liVrady, as a means i! increas
ing its nsefiilness and extending its intl iciu e at
home aiul abroad. Tii sinmcr it becomes
the -;i re beiu !h ia! it will prove; and as Hie
money required for its supj.rirl is far less than
the maiei i.il yood il does, ii is the best invest
ment any county can mak?.
The Record will of necessity take part in
the politics of the country. 11 it is the duty ot
every man to keep himself well informed in
respect to public ail'iirs, and to take a decided,
and manly part therein, it is especially the
duty of the editor of a newspaper faithfully
to investigate all questions oi public concern,
ami give to his readeis the facts ol the same.
The undersigned pledges himself U; be true in
this regard. He will not knowingly deceive
his readers for the s. ike of parly or anything
else; but by laying before them the facts, as he
may enabled to obtain them, will endeavor to
aid all to act wiselv for the general good. As
political matters now stand, his personal con
victions are most decidedly in accord with the
views and feelings of the Democratic Conserva
tive parly. He believes that theeiloi ts of this
party in ISTti wrenched from the grasp of tyr
ants and corruptionists in high places the civil
liberty that ue now enjoy, lie regards that
great victory as second onlv to that gained bv
(lie fathers of 177(1. The danger was immi
nent, the constant tendency fatal, but the cour
age, wisdom and devotiri of the I onservati ve
party proved itself equal to the occasion, ntul
gloriously rescued ihe imperiled liberties of
(he people. ' While that parly shall continue
more pure and truly patriotic than any other,
he intends lo be fully identified with it.
Iut the main design of Tlie Record to serve
the county of Davidson in all the way it may
be possible to advance her interests and pro
mote the welfare of her people. And to this
end the undersigned der-ires such intimate re
lations with her citizens as shall enable him o
perform his duty liicienily.
The paper will be published weekly at $1 a
year in tidrunre. It will be small, but neatly
printed on new type; and ihe proprietor hopes
to make tip in ijunHiy whnt may be lacking in
!iz The (irsl number wifl appear about the
first week in Januaiy, 1878.
