DAILY EVENING STAR. Valuable Medical Receipts. How to cure a rold.?Of all the means of curing colds, fasting is the most effectual. Let whoever has a cold cat nothing what ever for two days and lus cold will be gone, provided he is not confined to his bed; because. not taking carbon into the system by food, but consuming the surplus which causes that disease by breath, he soon carries off the disease, by removing the cause. This will be found more effectual, if he adds copious water drinking to protracted fasting. By the time a person has fasted one day And night, he will ex perience a freedom from pain, and a clearness of mind, in delightful contrast with the mental stupor and physical pain, caused by colds. And how infinitely bet ter is this method of breaking up colds, than by mcdicine. Hooping Cough.?Take sub-carbonate of potass, 20grains; cochineal, 10 grains: white sugar, 1 ounce; water, G ounces; and mix throroughly together. Dose, a tea spoonfull three or four times a day.

DAILY EVENING STAR The Dignity of Labor. Professed philanthropy is a very cheap and common commodity. There is an exceedingly plentiful amount of wordy sympathy at the present day for working people, hence great swelling articles about the 44 dignity of labor" arc paraded with extraordinary frequency and in polific abundance. Being the professed advo cates of industry, we at once say that there is neither dignity nor disgrace con nected with labor?mental or physical? in itself apart from the object of labor. If physical labor is of a dignifying nature, then the horse, ox, and steam engine possess a greater amount of it than man. If mere mental labor is of a dignifying nature in itself, then forgers and plotting gamester* must stand on very elevated positions on the ladder of dignity. Tho majority of articles which we have read on the dignity of labor are calculated to deceive o-*r working people; it is for them they are intended, and their tenden cy is injurious.
