LINCOLN. "Ladies and Gentlemen, I regret to
say that the Tragedy, entitled The Army of the Potomac, has been withdrawn on

new and striking Farces or Burlesques, one, entitled The Repulse at Vicksburg,
by the well-known, popular favorite,
E. M. STANTON, ESQ., and the others, The Loss
of the Harriet Lane and The Exploits of the Alabama—a very sweet thing in
Farces, I assure you—by the Veteran Composer, GIDEON WELLES." (Unbounded
Applause by the COPPERHEADS.)

Lyon's Kathairon. This delightful
article for preserving and beautifying the human hair is again put up by the
original proprietor, and is now made with the same care, skill, and attention,
which first created its immense and unprecedented sales of over one million
bottles annually! It is still sold at 25 cents in large bottles. Two million
bottles can easily be sold in a year when it is again known that the Kathairon
is not only the most delightful hair dressing in the world, but that it cleanses
the scalp of scurf and dandruff, gives the hair a lively, rich luxuriant growth,
and prevents it from turning gray. These are considerations worth knowing. The
Kathairon has been tested for over twelve years, and is warranted as described.
Any lady who values a beautiful head of hair will use the Kathairon. It is
finely perfumed, cheap and valuable. It is sold by all respectable dealers
throughout the world. D. S. BARNES & CO., New York. Send for Trade-List, revised
