Kellogg of this city, has porformed with his accustomed succees in such cases, the operatiou of removing three cancers. The patiënt was Harvey Tanuer, of Woodstock, McHenry Co., 111., aged 70 years. One of the tumors was directly under the right eye ; the second in the left, the third - and by far the largest of the three- on the forehead and directly over the last mentioned. The operation was performed with little or no pain to the patiënt. Notwithstanding his advanced age and previous suffering he is now doing well and will return to his home in Illinois in a day or two. This was a most interesting case and successful operation, and should attract the attention of all interested, particularly that of the medical profession, and those afficted with that virulent and life destroying tumor - cáncer. - The Doctor, we are informed, in addition to his extensive home practice, received by the momiug's mail on Saturday last, letters on professional business as followa : From Massachusetts, 1 ; New York, 2 ; Wisconsin, 1 ; Oregon, 1 ; Ohio, 1 ; Michigan, 3 ; Pennsylvania, 1 ; Tennesseee, 1 ; Indiana, 1 ; Mississippi, 1 ; Texas, 2 ; Ontario, 2,- total, 17. From the Manchester Enterprise of the 17th inst., we clip the following : Our people were startled last evening at 9 o'clock, by the alarm of lire, and in a few inoments anxious eyes were looking eastward where a briglit light indicated the direction of the conflagration. It wa9 soon ascertained that the Shoddy Mills of Messrs. Jaynes & Dawes, east of this village were in ñames. Before assistance could be rendered the entire building was swept away incurring a total loss of from $2,000 to $2,500. The property was not insured. We are very sorry for these young men for they had just got fairly into business and were doing well. We are told, however, that they will commence again in a few days, at the Woolen Pactory iu this village.
