J^j^MoM AS PS .Assistant Supt. CENTAUR LINIMENTS White, for the Human Family. Yellow, for Horses and Animals, These Liniments are simply the wonder of the world. Their effects are little less tjian marvellous yet there are some things which they will not do. They will not cure caucer or mend broken bones, but they will always allay pain. They have straight-ened fingers, cured cMonic rheumatism of many years standing, and taken the pain from terrible burns and scalds, which has never been done by any other article. T h e W h i t e L i n i m e n t is for the human family. It will drive Rheumatism, Sciatica and Neuralgia from the system; cure Lumbago, Chil-blains, Palsy, Itch, and most Cutaneous Eruptions; it extracts frost from frozen hands and feet, aud the p o i s o n of b i t e s a n d s t i n g * of venomous reptiles; it subdues swelling^, and aBHmtes pain of every kind. For sprains or bruises it is the most potent reme-dy ever discovered. The Centaur Liniment is used with great efficacy for sore Throat, T o o t h a c h e , Caked R r e a s t s , Earache, and Weak Back. The following is but a sample of numerous testimonials: INDIANA HOME, JBFK. C o . . INI>., May 28, 1873. "I think it my dutv to inform you that I have s u f f e r e d much with s w o l l e n feet and c h o r d s , I have not been f r e e from these swell-ings i n e i g h t y e a r s . Now I a m p e r f e c t ly w e l l , thanks to the Centanr Liniment. The Lini-ment ought to be applied warm. BENJAKIN BBOWN The proof is in the trial. It is reliable, it is handy, it is cheap, and every family should have it To the sick and bed-ridden, the halt and lame, to the wounded aud sore, we say, " C o m e a n d be h e a l e d . " To tne poor and distressed who have spent their money for worthless medicines, a bottle of Cen-t a u r L i n i m e n t will be giyen without charge, The Yellow Centaur Liniment is adapted to the tough muscles, cords and flesh of horses and animals. It has performed more w o n - d e r f u l cures of Spavin, Strain,. W*nd-ga»s Scratches, Sweeny, and general Lameness, than all other remedies in existence. Read what the great Expressmen say of it: N R.W YORK, J a n u a r y , 1874. "Every owner of horses should give the CENTAUB LINIMENT a trial. We consider it the best article ever used in our stables.

I want to purchase it at the wholesale price, and will thank you to ship me by Savannah steamer one gross of each kind. Messrs. A. T. Stewart & Co. will pay your bill on presentation. Respectfully, JAKES DA®BOW. The best patrons of this Liniment are Farriers and Veterinary Surgeons. It heals Galls, Wounds and Poll-evil, removes welling®, and is worth m i l - l i o n s of d o l l a r s to Farmers, Li very-men,Stock-growers, Sheep-raisers, and those having horses or cattle. What a Farrier cannot do for $80 the Centaur Lini-ment will do at a trifling cost.

It is adapted to all ages, but is especially recom-mended to m o t h e r s as a reliable remedy for all disorders of the stomach and bowels of children.

Constipation is the mother and nurse of the for Jowmg diseases: Dyspepsia, Liver Complaint,Head-ache, Billiousnpss, Insanity, &c. It produces conl fusion of thoughts, faiiurp of memory, and nervous-ness, and gives to the skin and eyes a dflll, sallow-unclean appearance, causes cold feet, injures the spine, and impairs the health in general. You will And that the Syrup is a POWERFUL BLOOD PURIFIER, and will do far more than I have recommended it to. Give it a trial, and it will manifest its own merits in less than six days, if used according to dlrrections. Bitters, Pills, Powders, and Lozenges will ne\ er cure constipation. Thousands have used my Syrup, including cases of from four to twenty-two yea re standing, which have been cured with less than four bottles.

No. 114 ESSEX STREET, \ CHELSEA, MASS., March 10, 1875.) DR. JACEBON : Dear Sir—I esteem It a duty as well a« a privilege to give my testimony in regard to the wonderful effects produced by your valuable medi-cine. About tbe last of February I commenced taking your Syrup, which has benefitted me more than anything I have ever taken before. Prior to that time, my bowels did not move more than once in six days, and many times not oftener than eight or ten days, and then by eompulsion; and I have even been conveyed from the water-closet in an in-sensible condition and subjected to powerful injec-tions and various medicines with but little effect. Cold feet baAe caused me many sleepless hours, but since taking your medicine that trouble has ceased. My husband savs I have not beer, so cheerful for years as I have been since I commenced using your Syrup. I can truly say I have not felt eo well for many years, and I attribute the agreeable change to the medicine, which is all that you recommend it to be. Yours respectfully. " MRS. MERCY B. COOLEY.

D E N N I S . AGENCY of Tolland County flfcutu-al Fire Ins. Co. at J, W. CHANDLER'S ofice, Rockwell's Blot*, Sttiord Springs. Among the distinguished names in the an-nals of Tolland County is that of Jared Sparks. His patriotic sorvices as the great biographer of the American Revolution, deserve special commemoration during this centennial yeai. Jared Sparks was born May 10th, 1789, in the town of Willington, Conn. He died at Cambridge, Mass., MarcB 14th, 18GG, having nearly completed his seventy-seventh year. Soon after his death, the Massachusetts His torical Society, of which he was vice-presi-dent, and long had been one its most valuable members, held a special meeting in honor of his memory, and appointed Rev. Dr. George E. Ellis to prepare a memorial of his life and labors, which was published in their Transac-tions. From this memorial of over a hundred pages we have gathered jnost of the facts con-tained in the following sketch. We have often quoted Dr. Ellis' own words, which express his estimate of the high personal character of Dr. Sparks, and of the yr.iue of bis labors in his profession, in his long career as the auth-or of many most valuable publications, and iu his high position as a professor, and as presi-dent of the oldest American University. Theearly opportunities lor rudimentary edu-cation, were only such as the dislrict schools of his native tgwn afforded,as good, doubtless, as those enjoyed in most of the towns in the vicinity. It is said that his mother, whose maiden name was Eleanor Orcutt, and who lived in humble circumstances, was fond of books, and had an active and well endowed mind. Her mother, Bethiah Parker, is report-ed to bave been a great reader, and also to have committed to writing her own musings in verse and prose. A childless sister of his mother, Mrs. Ebenezer Eldredge, and her hus-band, seem to have shared largely in the over-sight of his early years, and at inteivals, he lived with them at their home in Washington County, N. Y. It is certain, that the faithful use of such advantages of culture as were within his reach, seemed for him the respect of the leading in-habitants of his native town, and by their en-couragement he was led to seek for and secure higher privileges. His own minate and ac-curate record shows, that "from his fifth to his tenth year, ho went to scliool iivo months each year, from the tenth to his sixteenth, only two months in each year." When he was six-teen, he attended school four months, with the special object of fitting himself to become a teacher. Meanwhile he learned the trade of a carpen-ter, following that occupation in the summer, and taught school in the winter season. His first school was in Tolland. His leisure hours, while teaching or engaged in his handicraft, were spent in his favoiite study of mathemat-ics. In March, 1809, he put himself under the tuition of Rev. Hubbell Loomis, the minis-ter of his native town, to study Latin and mathematics. He had borrowed of a sailor a treatise on Navigation. Mr. Loomis charged him a dollar a week, aa compensation for board and tuition. Alternating labor with study, he shingled the barn of his teacher for tbe sum of ten dollars. Mr. Loomis was a mun of great force of character. Without the help of a collegiate education, he had gained a high repute as a teacher and a clergyman,—and, after his re-moval from Willington, in 1828, he became the president of <£hurtleff College, at Alton, 111. He was the father of Elias Loomis, L. L. D., professor of Natural Philosophy and Astronomy in Yale College. He died Dec. 15th, 1872, in the 98th year-of his age. While connected with Mr. Loomis' school a circumstance occurred which decided the direction of the subsequent course of his pupil. Rev. Abiel Abbot, pastor of the First Church in Coventry, called one day to pay a brotherly visit to Mr. Loomis. This visit oc-curred, when an earnest ecclesiastical contro-versy at Coventry was approaching its crisis, the result of which, wns the deposition of Mr. Abbot from the ministry, by the Tolland County Consociation, for heretical opinions. A very clear account of this controversy, i3 given by Rev. Dr. Sprague in his Annais of the American Pulpit. The visit of Mr. Abbot, proved to be a great advantage to young Sparks. Mr. Ab-bot was known to be an excellent classical scholar, and was, after his removal from Cov-entry, the principal of the famous Dummer Academy, at Bvfield, a parish of Newbury, Mass. Mr. Loomis called in his pupil, that Mr. Abbot might hear the young carpenter recite a lesson in Virgil, which he was read-ing at the rate of two hundred lines a day, al-though he had been studying Latin only eight weeks. On learning his pecuniary circumstances, Mr. Abbot suggested Phillip's Academy at Exeter, as a school where free tuition and oth-er helps might be obtained for a student so worthy of patronage. The Academy at Exeter was then in charge of Mr. Abbot's cousin. Dr. Benjamin Abbot, who was principal of Phillip's Academy fifty years. Mr. Abbot made a successful application for the admis-sion of young Sparks, who started for Exeter on foot. Leaving Willington, Sept. 4th, 1809, he reached Exeter on the 7th, a distance of one hundred and twenty miles—traveling forty miles a day. Mr. Abbot and his wife, being about to visit Exeter, traveled in their own chaise, carrying Spark's trunk suspend-ed from the axle. Mr. Loomis suggested to the young scholar that the advantage he was seeking would justify the incurrence of a small debt. But debt was always a fearful word to Mr. Sparks, yet, with great reluctance, he borrowed a small sum from his friend, Mr. Loomis. He reached Exeter the same day with Palfrey, his life-long friend. Bancroft joined them not long after. Thus the three most eminent historians of their country's an-nals, were cotemporaries at the same school and the same college. He entered Harvard in August, 1811, in his twenty-third year, at an age in advance of the average period of graduation, in that college. His class was distinguished for ability and de-votion to study. He is said to have excelled all his mates in mathematics, and to have had a very high general rank. But this honora-able position was sustained with the opposi-tion of difficulties, which he had to encounter every step of his way. While at Exeter and at Cambridge, he was obliged to spend nearly all his vacations and a considerable part of his term time, in teach-ing others, fn order to earn the means of hie own improvement. Thus he taught school at Bolton, Mass., the first winter after he entered, college. Re-turning to his class, Feb. 26th, 1812, he again left it on the 20th of March following, aud was absent fifteen months, teaching as a pri-vate tutor at Havre de Grace, Maryland. This interruption was caused by stern neces-sity, and felt by him to be a great sacrifice and loss. The special indulgence of Presi-dent Kirkland gave him this leave of l6ng ab-sence, in order to earn that by which he lived. He took his text books and borrowed volumes with him, and while plying his ability- as a teacher in a distant part of the country, he was keeping pace at the same time, with his class at Cambridge. Soon after his arrival at Havre de Grace, he was sorely disappointed in finding that a large part of the stipulated salary, whioh was the inducement of his voluntary exile from college, would not bo paid. While staying at a public house, in a state of mental dejec-tion, occasioned in part by his pecuniary cir-cumstances, and in part by the loneliness of his situation, among a people so different in spirit and training from the people of New England, two travelers, on their way to Wash-ington, came to the inn. A beautiful island in the Susquehanna attracted their attention, aud one of them procured a boat, and invited Mr. Sparks to accompany him to the place. The excursion was most delightful, and Mr. Sparks enjoyed intensely .the conversation of the new comer, whose cordiality seemed greatly increased, when informed that he was a Harvard student. Ou returning to the inn, the- strauger made himself known. He was the Hon. Josiah Quincy, then a leading mem-ber of congress, from Massachusetts, who in-troduced his new formed acquaintance to his companion, Rev. Dr. Channing, of Boston. The interview gave the forlorn aud struggling student new life and hope. His new friends were his warm friends ever after, with whom he became counected in most intimate rela-tions. Josiah Quincy became president of Harvard College, aud, with one intervening incumbent, Edward Everett, was succeeded in that olfice, by the student he first met at the inn, at Havre de Grace. Mr. Sparks graduated at Cambridge, "with high distinction, in 1815. In his senior year he gained the Bowdoin prize for a Dissertation on the Physical Discoveries of Sir Isaac New-ton. This dissertation was at the time re-garded as exhibiting great ability , aud power of apprehending and judging, and was re-ferred to, long after as a college exercise, which set a high mark for subsequent com-petitors. Two years after graduation, Mr. Sparks was recalled to the college as a tutor in Geom-etry and Natural Philosophy. At this period, he seriously entertained a project for the ex-ploration of Central Africa, being moved thereto, by his deep sympathy with the heroic expeditions of Park and Ledyard. Not far from this period, he wrote his first contributions for the North American Review. Subsequently he became its editor and pro-prietor, for six years, from 1824 to 1830. For his profession he chose the Christian Ministry, and was settled at Baltimore, in May, 1819. During his short career as a clergyman, he was considered as one of the most promising ministers of the Unitarian denomination. He belonged to a group of cotemporary Harvard graduates, who began their career as candidates for the pulpit, and were all distinguished for their literary attain-mets^ Of this number were Edward Everett, the Eliots, Norton, Sparks, Palfrey, Gilman and Bancroft. Some received ordination aud were settled in the ministry, but nearly all left this profession for secular oallings, in which they gained their chief distinction. Mr. Sparks resigned his pastorate, after a little more than foui yei.ra of service, on the 1st of July, 1823. The climate of Baltimore was unfavorable for his health. He always had a natural repugnance to pnblic speaking, and he became deeply interested in literary work, more congenial than the labors of the ministry. Not long after his resignation at Baltimore, he committed his sermons to the flrimes. During his brief pastorate, he was chosen as the chaplain of the House of Rep-resentatives of the United States, for one ses-sion, in 1821. After leaving the ministry, he sold his ex-tensive, rare and valuable Theological Li-brary, in order to obtain funds to buy books relating to his historical studies. In 1824 he devoted himself to the study of the Spanish language, in order to obtain original and ac-curate knowledge of South American affairs. In 1825 he began to gather materials for his "Life and Correspondence of George Washington." This work cost him ten years of assiduous toil, and fills twelve large octavo volumes. It was completed in 1837. In 1853 he published fonr su^P'emeiltal volumes, un-der the title of "The Correspondence of the American Rfivolution." containing the letters of eminont men to Genpral Washington. In 1829 and 1830, he edited "The Diplo; matic Correspondewce of the Revolution," being the letters of Franklin, Deane, John Adams, Arthur Lee, and others, concerning the Foreign Relations of the United States, during the whole Revolution ; also letters in replv from the secret committee of Congress, and the secretary of Foreign affnirs ; also the entire correspondence of the French minis-ters with Congress. This work, in twelve large octavo volumes, was published by Con-gress. In 1830, Dr. Sparks began his "Life and Correspondence of Benjamin Franklin." on which he spent four years of devoted atten-tion. This work was published in 1840, in ten large octavo volumes. They contained matter for the first time printed, procured "with unwearied diligence and extended in-quiry." In 1833 he had published a small volume of "Franklin's Familiar Letters." most of which were then for the first time printed, collected chiefiv by himself. But afterwards he succeeded "in bringing togeth-er. from a strange variety of hiding places and repositories, from five to six hundred original letters, and other unprinted papers of Dr. Franklin." Dr. Sparks has left on record, in his journ-al, the following statement, which reveals a moRt interesting fact, relating to his own per-sonal experience. We wish every young man in Tolland County, of every occupation and condition, would commit these golden words to memorv. "Franklin's Autobiography was the book, which first roused my mental energies, such as they are. and directed them to nobler ob-jects, than they seemed destined by fortune or the fates to be engaged in. It prompted me to resolutions, and gave me strength to adhere to them. It inspired me with an ar-dor, which I had not felt before, and which never afterward forsook me. It taught me that circumstances have not a sovereign con-trol over the mind." It must have been a grateful task to Mr. Sparks to wiite the life and edit the works of the man, whose example had inspired him, before he left his native hills, to gain the1 fruits of that ripe culture, which enabled him to do his work so well, that criticism has pro-nounced it faultless. In his journal he says. "I have spared no pains, to collect all the known writings of Franklin, and to write notes on such parts as required explanation." In 1832, he published "The Life and Cor-respondence of Gouveneur Morris," in three octavo volumes, detailing events in the Ameri-can and French Revolutions,and inth^ Politi-cal History of the United States. In 1832, he projected his "Library of American Biography," a work which appear-ed in two series, the first, consisting of ten volumes, the seeond, of fifteen. The plan embraced the lives of distinguished Ameri-cans. or of persons renowned in American Johu Fitch by Charles Whittlesey. These subjects, selected at random, from a great number in these volumes, show the scope and object of Mr. Sparks in this most useful and popular of all his literary enterprises, and the general sympathy of cultivated minds, in his attempts to preserve from oblivion the names aad the deeds of the illustrious heroes and founders of our American institutions. In 1839, Dr. Sparks was appointed Profes-sor of History in Harvard University, and held the office ten years. During this period he was several times solicited to accept a nomination, as a member of Congress, but uniformly de^ clined the honors of public life, if he must abandon his chosen and most congenial pur-suits. Iu 1849, he was chosen to succeed Edward Everett, as president of Harvard University, an office for which he was pre-eminently fitl ted, and iu which he gave great satisfaction, to the University and to the public. In 1851, while returning from Boston to Cambridge, he suffered severe injury, by be-ing run over by two men, recklessly driving, in a chaise. The effects of this injury on his right arm, were permanent, and disabled him from the work he loved most to do. His general health also suffered from this acci- i -. . . . ^ r— dent, and, in consequence, he resigned the 1, , fo a d a ' i n t h « manner provide 1 by presidency of the college, after four years of j f l f Z t b e . of highways which service, in 1853. ^ ha™ ^ e " ! a i d Sec. 2.

The two series, contain nearly sixty biographies. In this work, Mr. Sparks had the co-opera-tion of the best writers of the country. He furnished himself the memoirs of Ethan Allen, La Salle, Count Pulaski, JohnRibault, Charles Lee, John Ledyard, and Father Marquette. He also published in this series his "Life and Treason of Benedict Arnold," which includes the story of Major Andre. Of the -remaining biographies, the Life of John Stark was written by Edward Everett, of Joseph Warren by Alexander H. Everett, of Henry "Vane by C. W.

Sprague, of Samuel Kirkland, tbe Indian Missionary, by Dr. Lothrop of Boston, of David Rittenhouse by James Renwick, of After a voyage to Europe, for the sake of health and recreation, Dr. Sparks resumed his favorite historical pursuits. During the war of the Rebellion, he was "anxious, but uufalteriug, very desirous of victories, and depressed by defeats." Exempted by age from all liability to draft, he, nevertbeles-s, sent a substitute to the field, and he welcomed with an exceedingly grateful heart the result of the war. He was twice married. His first wife was the daughter of William Allen, Esq., of Hyde Park, N. Y. She died of consumption, in 1836, leaving one daughter, who died of the same disease, in her thirteenth year. He was married in 1839, to a daughter of the Hon. Nathaniel Sillsbee, an eminent mer-chant of Salem, Mass., and a colleague Sena-tor of the United States, with Daniel Webster. In 1852, while he was president of Harvard University, he visited the scenes of his youth, in Willington and Tolland County,. In a let-ter to his wife, dated, Tolland, Aug. 17th, 1852, he wrote as follows : "Here I am, where the hills and the valleys, the running brooks, and even the ancient oaks and elms, revive the recollections of boyhood. This afternoon I rode to a remote part of the town, to visit the primitive school house, in which I first taught 'the youug idea how to shoot.' There it stands without change, answering to the image in my mind—the same little oaken seats for the urchins, the same long writing tables slanting from the walls— every thing precisely as it was. And so it is with the town itself. But there is every-where tbe appearance of comfort, of moderate but steady thrift, of tranquil contdhtment, which makes a most favorable impression. The people are changed. A new race has come up. I saw one old friend, near the school house, who has always resided there. To-day I accidentally met Mr. Willey, a form-er member of Congress, who knew your fath-er. Before he knew of our relationship, he spoke of him in a manner that was most gratifying to me." Dr. Sparks died after an illness of one week. His disease was pneumonia. His bodily vigor had become impaired, but his mental powers were unabated. "His endear-ed friends, among them Dr. Palfrey, his col-lege class-mate, were with him night and day. His sickness was painless, and seemed too placid to be mortal. He was pleasant and nat-ural. not seeming like a sick person, except in the prostration of his strength. On Sun-day evening his children were around him, and with no consciousness that he was giving them his last lesson, he spoke to them in words of exceeding sweetness and beauty, closing with the sentence,—'Strive to do good a n ° vou will surely bring it to pass.' " Dr. Sparks had a noble person, well pro-portioned massive, but not heavy ; a head of size, with an expanded, thoughtful brow, with ^f1^ eyes> CftTltle features, and an expression ° f "elicate refinement, that became the high ®?ned gentleman, and the consistent Chris- *lan. A shade of pensiveness, occasionally . ppening*into sadness, and betokening some lntrospective working of his thought, or pur- Pose, as engaged with profound themes, or 'arge mysteries, was a marked feature of his. alike in public or in private " Tho life and labors of President Sparks, affords an illustrious example to young men aspiring to obtain a liberal education, as a means to become useful in the noblest pro-fessions and oallings. He never gave the slightest encouragement to any young man. to think that success in any honorable calling could be won withont patient and painstaking preparation for that calling, both by means of knowledge, and most careful mental discipline. In a letter to Edward Everett, he said : "A strange fancy has got into the heads of men, that change is progress, and innovation im-provement : that a road through a labyrinth is shorter than one across a plain, open coun-try ; that confusion is method; that it is ea-sier to stumble among mole bills, than to climb steadily and patiently up the mountain side. I hive no sympathy with 'voluntary studies.' I do not believe a young man is so well qualified for his station in life, be it what it may, by a fragmentary education, as by a complete one. He is like a portioo with half its columns broken, or a statute with an arm gone, or the head fractured." President Sparlf? started in his course of liberal culture, when his youth was past, and with the fewest helps of good fortune. But he never allowed himself to m&ke his poverty a reason for being content with a poor educa-tion. He considered that his poverty was a good reason, why his education, should be the very best; and he determined that it should be as complete as the best teachers and the best opportunities could make it. This pur-pose soon secured respect, sympathy, and as-sistance. It was tbe ground of his success in the school and the university. That success gave him the very best position and patrons he could desire. Thus the fairest opportunities of a useful and honorable career were fairly won. For-tune has no greater favors to bestow on one thus prepared, to serve his country and his times, in any responsible and noble calling or profession. The path was wide open to that distinction he attained among the eminent scholars and historians, in his own oountry and in foreign lands.
