Tiik Sandwich  [tLAMDElts.—Tlio statistics of the decline of tlio   Hiiwuiiin or
Sandwich    Island   race    are   positively
frghtful, and we betlere almost nnparal-
Iclud in   modern history.    In 1833, three
years nfter the  nrrirnl  of the American
missionaries, the population of the Islands
was estimated at from 136,000 to 100,000
soil's,  while  twenty-five  years  Inter, iu
1818, there were not   more  than 80,000
inhabitants.   The census of 1853 gave the j
total  population itt but.73,137, of whom j
ii.IIS were foreigners, with the (numeration of 1860 showed a further decline to |
fifl,8000,   numely,   67,f'84   natives   and
9,716  foreigners.     Thus   there   was   a
decrease  of 3,.'I3V individuals, or nearly i
live per cent, in the course of seven years.
What  increases  the  meaning   of   these .
figures is, that  the women nre d>ing out I
much   fast, r   than   thc   men,   the   ex-1
cess   of intileB  over   femnlos   amounting
at   the   census   of   1H60    to   not    less |
than G. 198.    It seems but  too probable,'
therefore,   that   the   unmixed   flnwaian |
rai-e   will   follow    Ihe    Dodo,   and   bo
extinguished within the  term of our own
generation.    The missionaries appear yet
to tntertuin n   hope  of regeneration  by
means of po'ico  und   hard   work.    But
»hut on imi th can   ever  induce n people
to work in a country where 'a lata pit,
hnv ng the area  of an ordinary dressing-
room, will keep a  man in food the whole
year."    Even   a s«U-editor wou'd   go on
strike under these conditions.    Travellers
seem inclined to look  upon the degradation of the   women   as  one of the  great
causes of the  decline of the   nice, but it
appears very doubtful whether this is no;
rather a consequence than a cause.

FACTS vs- THEORIES.
" Give mo n place to rest my lever on,"
says Archimedes, " and I will move the
world." l( Give ine pure and unadulterated
drugs," says Medicos, of tlie olden time,
"nnd I will euro disease."
In ono sense, both of these learned pundits
were the veriest charlatans.  They knew tliere I
was no place to rest their lever on, either to |
move the world or cure disease.    Mechanism |
was In a backward stale, and the medical profession was  but unothci  name  for  sorcery,
and  all the adjuncts   of mngic  filters   and
charms of the " «WI eye," 4c.
But these latter days have borne nolo us
something more ttian even superstition and
its crew ever dreamt of in their maddest phi.
losophy. In these days of practical science,
what was theory of yesterday if fact to-day,
and all th* old timo notions become as bubldes
in the sun, and burst and break wilh every
breath we draw.
bet Archimedes shoulder his lever and we
will find a resting place for it to move the |
world. Let mine ancient Medicus pant and
toil no more for tho drugs he so sorely needs,
for we have them at our hand, ever rtady to
sorve tbem at his beck.
Refined in the laboratory of Dr. Mngiiel,
the finest materials known In the medical profession are obtainable by any one. His
Billious, by-peptic, and Diarrhoea Pills stand
unrivalled, and his Salve operates with magical effect upon burns, scalds,and ullsorcs and
ulcers of tbe skin.
In fact, we think Maggml's Pills and Salve
are tbe wo-ider of this centnry, nnd wc are
happy in the thought that many others ol our
brethren of the craft agree with us. We would
earnestly connsel thnt all families provide
themselves with Dr. Maggiel's Prepaiations at
once, and keep them ready at hand, so as to
nse them at the most opportune lime and as
occasion serves.— VaSeji Sentinel.

 ^JM Tbe Victorian Imbroglio,
The Daily Newt of July 19, referring
to the ri-cull of Sir Charles Darling and
the appointment of the new Governor of
Victoria, rem irks :—
Mr. Curdwell's instructions strike at
the root of all responsible government.
The colonists know and feel it, and the;
ure determined to defend their rights.
Mr. Card well wrote, for the guidance of
General Carey, that'in the event of sn
occasion arising in wbich it would be clear
to his judgment that the advice nf his
ministers for tbe time bemg would involve a violation of the law,' he was to
disiuiss tbem. Imagine any constitutional
minister writing thus lo the governor of
a British colony ! Mr. Cardwell did not
proceed to inlorm General Carey how he
wis to carry on the government of the
colony afier dismissing the ministers who
had the confidence of 'he Assembly. In
England the Crown follows the opinion
of its responsible advisers upon points ol
law, and never thinks of setting up u
merely personal conviction against their
authority. Toe new Governor of Victoria, however, is to do t liis—to presume
to know butter than his responsible Inw
offlofltt, who are sworn to advise him,
«n ii is lawful and what is not. Tiie
folly of this act is inconceivable. Why
ll the individual judgment of a military
functionary to be deemed a better guide
ou points of constitutional government
thun the public judgment of the responsible advisers of the Crown? (Anil,
supposing the now governor and the
council to be united in opposition to thc
House of Assembly, how is tho government to be carried on ? Of one thing the
British origin aud character of the colony
is a pledge ; it will not be carried on
'tinder such conditions. The colonists
will not allow an Upper House, elected
on the basis of a restricted suffrage, and
a paid public servant who has no interest
in the colony, to overbear iho Assembly
which represents the people.)
Ths Daily Telegraph, while approving
of tbe recall of Sir Charles Darling,
enters its protest against a style of discussing Australian politics which is only
too common in Great Britain. It pro*
cecds to say :—
We are tired of those tirades rfbout the
" failure of democracy,''   in wbich every
Tory whipper-Bnapper is accustomed to
indulge.    We have assuredly no love for
democracy in the abstract ; but it is only
a doctrinaire  who  will maintain tliat a
system which would  be undesirable for a
country like England,  is  therefore unsuitable for a new community.   We join
issue, moreover, not only on the theory,
but ou  the facts ; nnd  we ask,  without
much anticipation of receiving an intelligible answer, in what respect the government of the Australian colonies is ti failure.    Under   enormous   difficulties, -the
statesmen of the new contineut have made
life and prop Hy as secure as tliey arc in
any country of the  world, and  with  a
motley population  to disturb  them, they'
hare succeeded in  maintaining order and
tranquility.    Even in the great constitutional crisis at Victoria, have there been
any breaches of the peace, any turbulent
outburst* „f democratic passion?    The
whole question has beeu n.„>.,.i nli ,.a|m|y
in Melbourne as onr own  Keform   liili
was discussed at Westminster ; and   al
though thero was an overwhelming  numerical  preponderance in favor  of the
Assembly, the bare idea of coercing  the
council   by  physical force was never for
.one moment entertained.   Nay,   more—
the chief offender against the  Constitution was the  vicegerent of Her Majesty,
who is now on  his way home ; he it was
who strained the law to suit the purpose
of his advisers.    It is pitiful to  point a
-schoolboy theme about  the weakness of
democracy, with  taunts at men who are
as loyal and as  law-abiding as ourselves.
Failure ?    Wo know opon  the eirth no
grander example of political success than
that presented  by Australia ; no  nobler
proof of the worth of English institutions
for an English people than the  way in
which they are working at the Antipodes
Too many of ns are accustomed to think
-of colonial  parties as   insignificant  and
petty.    Why, the statesmen  of the new
land hnve  to  deal with the distribotion
and the government  of territories compared to  which  the  boundaries   of the
British islands aro  parochial ; they have
to guide and direct tho growth of States
which, in   tho far future,   will probably
eclipse onr own : and yet they are to.be
treated as though  they were parish vestrymen squabbling about a rate of' two.
pence in  the pound I    It is becuuse we
utterly repudiate  and  despise a tone of
thought  at once so  ungenerous  and so
silly, that even whiUt applauding the removal of Sir Charles Darling, we hasten
to do justice to the good feeling of those
who are still his staunch and  firm adherents.

These famous pills are so composed tha
they operate wholesomely on the slomsch, th«
liver, Iho bowtlB, and other orjinns; by corree:-
inK any liiiiiiiKi'iiii'i'H in their functions
whereby a steady supply of pure materials tor
the renewal of tlie Blood Is furnished, and a
constant abstraction of effete products is effected. Tbis perfect circulation thai becomes
the very fountain of health and life, and over-
comes all form of Jisease wherever its litua«
tlon.
Geueral Disorders of lbe Liver
and Stomach.
All who erer indulge a' table, either Id eat-
*ng or drinking, should take ahout ten of th98-
fitm.ius pillaat bed time, from which will re*
suit a clear head and good stomach the fill w-
inj; morning. Thousands of Ladies art always complaining of sick headaches, want o
appetite, want of energ>,and want of strength,
to correct all these evils, three or foot ot these
I'ills should be laken twice a week, when they
wnulil give tbe invalid .ne health anil appetite
of a ploughman.
Female* ol' all Aires and Classes
Obstructions ot any kind, either in yoanf
or those between forty and fifty--th' most critical petlod of life—may be radically remold
by using these Pills according to the printed
directions whieh accompany each boi. Vonnn
persons wilh sickly and sallow complezioni
may have tbe bloom of health restored by thir
corrective, wlich purifies the blood nnd expels all gross and impure humors from the system. Beware then of the critical age Iron
forty to fitly, as it sends many thousands to
premature grave,—these Pills should bis takei
it that period of lite two or tbree tln.ee »

Want  or Strength and Energy-
Person" of sedentary habits, or those troubled in mind, working in Factories or Coal
Pits, who cannot obiain that* mount ol fresl
air and exercise which nature requires, suffer
from weakness and delilitv, lowness of splr.ls
nnd want of appelite. All such should lake *
lose or two ot these Pills every Ihree or fout
days, as they act gently and effectually on tht
system and impart vigor and energy to the
body, which is always followed by a good
appetite, sound and refreshing sleep, and a
high flow o.' spirits.
For the Cure of Dropsy.
The cfllct r of Holloway's Pills in Dropsy
is extraordinary. They act with such a peculiar effect upon the system, that tha fluid/
causing this dlrelnl complaint, are pereeptlbl
jarried off and prevented from any furthei
accumu'ntion. The sufferer regains a buoyancy of spirits and rejoices io a completely
renovated con liiuiimi. It is indispensably
necessary that the Ointment should *>a most
effectually rubbed into the complaining parts
during the whole course of treatment.
Children and their Allmentc
In no country in tlic world are more children
carried to an early grave than in Great Britain.
Coughs, Measles, Scarlatina, Fevers, and other
liseases attack the little sufferers, apd death,
but too often, follows at a rapid pace ; yet if
at the first stage ol these complaints, parenla
were to have recourse to Holloway'a Pills, all
danger would be avoided for the stomach
nnd bowels would ue gently but effectually
cleansed bv this milti aperient; the depraved
nuniors corrected ano me secretions dul7 regulated. A perfect cure would toon bn affected, and the 1'ttle patient restored to sounl

Tlie  mnat  important   puliliu  roeetinp
«-v,r ii.-M   un Va iniei Islam!   I'utiie off
last evening ai the 'I heatre. The objccl
•k annoiii -ed, was lo take into consideration the condition of the culony. Owing
l) the absence o/.tlie principal parties
who called the jtietiting, muoli   lime   wns
liiat.'ur cather spent, in  the absence of a
'   '. ' t \
..cliairiiww, in tlio nniiaf chuffing. Following we *i»e a condensed report
of the procetrdinga. It wus evident from
.; ih* coininenccmeiit that a. nniiiher of per
►nns had entered the Theatre fur the purpose at, crejtiog; a ilisturhjnoe, and
lirwiking up. if possible, the meeting
1'Oremost among th's class were a number
of Government officials nnd hangers on
The  fact,  however,   that  none of them
. itoufd ul)tain"» hearing sufficiently sliowed
the unpopularity • of tlrem and their
^fniuse. .In "train t-bey Tied by introdncing
in the most,jrrevelnnt ninnner every
description of amendment, in ruin they
attempted  to  disgrace   the     naino     ol

an " amendment,"—every description  of
,HtofPHT Wid buffoonery wits tried,
»mt proud ■ fruitless. The determination
ol tlie meeting was to deal wit i the
business before them—lo decide on the
ihcnsnres best udspted to improve the
condition of tho colony. The resoiu ion
jiiilrliehed elsewhere, ond which wns pir_
ried overwhelmingly, wilt we think effect
the object desired. It will show to Her
Majesty''Government Ihat tbe people of
this colbiiy are" not lost to all sense of
hIuuic—that they feel the ignominy to
.wliicli tbe Imperial authorities have attempted to reduce tflem, and that tbeir
very loyally"and attflrbineiit to Great
Britain will bo endangered, unless
Her Majesty's Ministers show a dis-
I'ositicn to look upon the people ol
this colony as briti-ti subjects, possess
ing the rights of fioiaien. In no other
wny can we arouse tho blunted sensibilities of our Downing Street tillers, nnd we
ihuYk the resolution when it hus goue its
omuls will do this effectually.

Muaa   111 <-t I us
The theatre was crowded »o its titmo«
capacity last nijht in response to the call for
a public meeting to consider the slate of the
«o!opy. The conveners of tbe assembly
bad Evidently acted on Ihe spur of the
moment, aod wiihout making the accessary
arrangements, as for some time after thc
house # is filled, tho platfoim remained unoccupied After some 15 or 20 minnle- had
a'apsed during which tho audience amused
themselves by chaillng 6ach tuber and calling
loudly for various p°noni, Mr. Wm. Leigh,
Town Clerk, al length cime forward end look
•the chair. A similar interregnum again followed, till at length, after loud calls,
Mr. McClure came forward, and was received with load applause, mingled with
hisses Ho stated that he was surprised at
tbe non-appearance of certain gentlemen who
bad piorais d to appear on tbo platform, but
as they hud not come f rward bo would himself assume iho responsibility. Mr. McClure
IhcB briefly considered the prese.it unfortunate stale nf affairs, alluding to the gre t
fa ling-offof business and ihe rapid decrease
of tha population, and showing how we were
cursed by an .iiruvagaut nnd imbecile government, and the way in which wo hid now
thrust tsfion us a union that deprived «s /even
of the privilnges wo had heretofore enjoyed
as British subjects, and reduced us to the
condition of serf*. He showol that while the
colonies were thus wasting in rapid decay,
sve had a country moro highly favored in
natural advantages than many, tbo proper
duvelopmmt at which should make us as
•prosperous aa auy country in life world. His
remarks were received with loud and frequent
applause, till be touched on the Government,
wheu it became evident that.there were parties present with the intention of disturbing
the meeiiag. Mr. B. 01. Alston, Uegistrar
General of the colony, nnd Mr. Watson, col-
■onial Treasurer, took a position near the gallery door, and begun to interrupt nnd annoy
thc speaker by loud remarks, coughing, and
other noises. They were nbly seconded
*>y a young man named Fowler, (one
of the government clerks whose salary was
cut off by the Houpe but who is still returned)
and by several official underlings and their
friends in various parts of tbe theatre. The
meeting was now frequently interrupted, till at
length Mr. Alston went down to the plai-
f.irm and attempted to speak while Mr.
McClure was on tbe floor. H-e was however,
greeted, witli such a nt-.nn of hisses,
groan-, aod hooting that his voice
could not be beard. Both parties were now
aroused, and neither of the speakers could
obtain a hearing. Mr. Treasurer Watson
joined his colleague and attempted to speak,
hut the audience would not hear a word, adD
drowned his voice with loud cries against
," Ihe officials."
•Ur. M'clure asked thc chairman to put
a resolution in faior of reciprocity with tho
United S.atcs. MV S/elsoa scribbled something ou a paper and handed it to ihe cha r-
mitn, who then put the resnlutj.ia und the
nun:' dtuept, declaring the latter carried before the audience knew what it was ; it subsequently turned out to be '.'three cheers for
the Queen.'' Mr- Leigh, who appeared to he
laboring under serious excitement, nt length
left the chair, and Captain 3tam;) was prevailed upon to tuke it, amid hearty cheers.
Ihe chairman asked the audience to give the
speakers fair piny, and he would Mini them to
15 ininnies each. Ue then called on Ur. Mr-
Cure, who again spoke und was listened to
quietly while he spoke ia favor of reciprocity
Wiethe United .-tates, and in favor ef a
thf-np and  liberal -form of Government;- A
Kesolutiun in favor of reciprocity, which Mr
M> Clure explained io mean the admission 11
our goeds into I'mud Mates purta duty free.
w:ii then carried almost unanimously. On
Mr Mil 'lute's resolution in I nor of a
cheap and liberal form of Government
Mr. Alston me to rppuse but the audie te
remember ng bis ci n'luct iu the earlier put
of 'lie meeting, hooted him down, uotwilli-
•tHiiding the remonstrances of the achiiiriunii,
who Men left the ch or. An a'tempt wus
ni ids by turning off a portion of the gas to
pnt end to the meeting, bul it was without
avail, the large ..concourse of pmple being
determined to await the issue of the meeting.
Acrording after the officials aud their liieinl.,
finding their effoils lo disturb the meeting
unavailing had left-, Mr. Young, ML.A..
was ca]led to the chair. The real business of
Iho meeting then com i.enced, and Mr.
McClure afier showing the necessity of great
and important cbutig s in Ibe government ol
the '•oumry, after showing that the only way
tn draw the attention of the Home (invuu-
ment to the colo y was to make it clearly
and unmistiike ibly understood Uhnt the people rather than be treated as a washes, witb
out any political sta us, preferred giving up
llri ish connection altogether, brought forward the following preamble and re.-olutiuo,
the   reusing  ol   which   was loudly cheered.
Winners nature has given to Vancouver
Island resources calculated to make ber tht
great manufacturing country of ihe Pacific
Coast; but owinj to the fact of the United
-tales market bei'g shut out from the Island;
by the heavy import duties of ibe Rep iblic',
thnsd resources have lain and are destined tu
lie for years undeveloped ; and'whereas tbo
Government of the lolouy has been hither o
of an illiberal and expensive character, standing in the way of the settlement ot the country,
aud oppressing the pe pie with iaxa ion beyond tbeir capacity; and wnereus Her Majesty s
G ■vernment bas, by the lute act of union,
tnken away even the few checks which the
people previously hud on Executivo ejitrava-:
g nee and oppression, and reduced the population to po iticul servitude :
He it resolved, that a respectful petit on lo
Her Majesty be drawu up for general eigna
turn, poiniiug out the impossibility of this
mlnny being settled so long as it is excluded
from let markets of tbo contiguous United
States, and so long hs its Government is i.res.
pon-ib'e as well as unduly expensive lo tbe
people; end praying to Iler Majesty as the
only remedy for the present disastrous state
of tilings, as indeed the only salvation of the
country, ihnt Her Majesty would bc pru-
ciously pleased to order the immediate restitution of our p'llitiual rights, nit i the full
measure of Responsible Goiernment, and the
best efforts of Iler Ministers to obtiin for this
colony recipmci.y with the United States-
failing this that Her Maje-ty wonld be graciously plensed to make such urrnhgciucQts
wlUi ihe Government of the United Slut's as
will admit of this colony being annexed to the
said United -tates ; showing at tbe .-umc lime
the regret which, as British subjects, the peti-
ti ine.is feel at asking for a severance of Iheir
connection with the moibor country; but
showing also 'hat a people acru.-tomed to tbe
political privilege; of fteemen cannot submit
passively to a syst m of Government that
places them in tbe humiliating attitude of
serfs.
Mr. Cochrane M.L.A. then came forward
and acknowledged tbat Mr. McClue wus
right iu Faying tbe policy of the mother
country was wallow the colonics to sever the
connection with Eng and so soon as they
were able to protect tb»ra-elws, but Vancouver Is'and "a* not iu this pot tion, nor was
it England's desire ihnt the colonics shou.d be
annexed to the States. Mr. Cochrane then
made some personul nlluRions to Mr. McClure
as editor of the Telegraph, calin- him 'traitor,' when he was met bv such a storm of
groaus that ho was obliged to ret re.
Mr. Mc1 lure being culled for aaVn came
forward and pointed out the lact that |iis on y
opponents were Government officials and
Bishop Hills' bum-bailiff-^ (Laughter.) The
former felt that their dais were numbered—
tbey knew tbat they would be obliged shortly
to leave the colony wiihout.however the consolation which thc mechanic had of knowing
how to earn their bread. (Heir.) Tbey were
but puupcrson public bgunly, and their efforts
there that evening to inierfero with the expression of public sentiment was a disgrace
to the colony (applause). Aa for the other
gentleman, Mr. Cochrane, a man who only a
little while ago a-sisted in turning a sick
womset and children out of a house the
property of the Bishop (groans)—a man who
from his attempt to take away the public
springs down to ihe present time has been
doing the dirty work of clerical usurers and
others—he was a nice man, certainly, to come
Ibere like the other whipper-snappers, canl-
iii:.r abuit his loyally   (Loud die. rs.)
Mr. Cochrane ihea row, but making iss* of
rather unparliamentary language he was
culled Jo order by the c airman aad sat down.
The chairman then put the resolution,
which wis carried by an overwhelming majority—in a proport on o  five to o c.
The re olution was ihen declared carried
amid i real ehecrirg, after which tbree doleful groans were .uiven for tbo Chronicle and
three d-nfening cheers for the Tbibohaph and
Mr. M'Clure, when tbe niectijg quietly separated.

The annual rille mutch between ten
marksmen from the Fleet and ten from the
Victoria Rifle Volunteers came off nt Esquimalt yesterday. The range was the oue
generally used by the Fleet, ou the beach
near Belmont, and was of course perfectly
Intel, although somewhat objectionable on
account of thu mn being iu tho faces of the
marksmen instend of their backs ; ibe weather however, was very favorable. Below wo
give the totnls Irom the official score, by which
ii will lie seen that the Victorians won ihe
match by 17 poi .ts. Victoria Rifle Volunteers:
Vinter, 40 ; llomfrny, 30 ; Jos. Wilson, 22;
Also'pp, 36 ; Soar, 49 . Wuolacott, 25 ; Long,
30; Jno. Wilson, 40 ; Newbury, 55 ; 1'ecle, 33.

Mallard, 35 ; Turner, 43 ; Shorter, 30 ; Mort-

The rangts were at 200, 300, 400, aud 600
yards. 	
Bl'ltNIKG    Of    THS    UltlTISH CoLUHUlAN Or-
rics.—We deeply regret to learn that the
printing office ot the British Columbian, in
New Westminster, was totally destroyed by
tire yesterday morning^ Flame< were discovered breaking out of the buiI'M. g about
three o'clock, and notwithstanding every
effort on the part of the firemen and citizens,
the office was entirely consumed. Wc learn
that the property was uninsuicd, and sympathise with Messrs. Robson k McMilimi
under their severe loss. We irust, however,
that our contemporary may shortly be able to
resume publication, whieh is the more likely
a| the plain of the ol I North Pacific Timet is
still in New Westminst. r, and may doubtless
be hud at a moderate price- There is mn h
reason lo fear that the tiro was the work of au
incendiary, as traces ol a. firt havltig been
kindled under the floor of the building were
apparent'.1
Cahboo Elsctions—Last Monday, thc 24th
instant, was the dny fixed for the election of
s representative for the mining district of
Cariboo. Several candidates were spoken of,
including Messrs. A. It. Robertson, Thomas
Harris, Spence, and MacLaren. Mr. Robertson, however, declined to stand, and the
Mining Board selected Mr. McLaren as their
candidate. The Sentinel comes out strongly
in favor of Mr. MacLaren, giving him a very
high character for ability and integrity, and
>< confident of his return. It was not known,
however, at last dates whether he would consent to stand.•■'•'"■•'' ' '

over the bank in front of Li,ring's sa oon at
the former place. Mr. Wilmott was thrown
over the bank and received the full force of
the fulling vehicle, which pinned him to the
spot. Singular to say, when extricated from
his perilous situation it was found tbat a box
of mutches in his pocket had been ignited by
the force of his fill, burning up $25 in notes
and scorching his body badly ; with the exemption of the injury inflicted by the burning
matches he was otherwise unharmed. The
only oiher damage sustained was the breaking of the dray.

und hWi-ll til) ut length il shut out the j

cl isi-d within the rind. And once we
heard a sick wonnn in humble life, describe, wiih intense power of l.inguage
and action, a dream, which constantl_y
liifiuted her. Words will give but a poor
representation of the spirit uud reality
wbich she threw into it. " I lie in bed,"
she said, "and, as my hand drops over
the aide of it, I feel a strong draught
blowing upwards, cold nnd damp, so thut
I know it comes from below ihe eurih.
I drag myself to the bed's edge, and I
Iind I am staring down into a de.-p shaft
—80 deep that the blackness looks uliuot
blue. As I watch, 1 see something white
ruining up on tlie wind, and as it neiirs
the top I see ic is a human bone ; then
ii hers follow it, spinnit.g nud ('tilting np
like snow flakes, till they lie in heaps ut
the foot of my bed ; then the wind ceuses,
und tlie bones begin to form themselves
into skeletons, which stand ^liuking ucd
rattling and pointing at me.'' One might
well ask the question uf ler this how far
nightmare forms a source of inspiration
for our poets aud uoveiists.
A letter fnm Buden contains  the following,   which   illustrates   the  state of

on each cither iu the face and arms.    One

A Peruvian plant, the Tilrytlioxylon
'Coca, has been found by experiment to
possess the property of quelling the sen-
witions of hunger und thirst for several
days. The plant nppears to narcotize

the digostive functions, without affording
any untriment. It may become a very
'useful medicine.
A gentleman who hns travelled extensively in the East states that in I gypt,

un effectual remedy is to pour into the

method of curt! seems very rough.

General Dlnorderfi of (be Liver
nnd Miiiiuich.
All who ever indulpe a* table, either in eat*
'ncr or drinking, should take about ten of t.':e9-
Inni.ius pills al lied time, from which viillree
suit a clear head and good siomach the fi 11 w-
inii iniiMiini;. Thousands of Ladies are always complaining of sick headaches, want o
nppclite, want of Ontffn, and want of strength t
to coirecl all these evils, three or four ot theso
I'ills should be taken twice a week, when they
w-iiild give the invalid ,ne health anil appetil*
ol a p'oughman.
Fcinnlex of all Afrem and Clasae*
Obstrnciions ot eny kind, either in young !
or those between forty and fifty—th most critical peiiod of life—may he radically remo. —J
by using these I'ills according to the printed
directions which accompany each box. Youn.fi
persons wilh sickly and sallow complexions
mny have the bloom of health restored by tin?
corrective, wl ich purifies the blood and expels ull gross and impure humors from tbtryi*
tem. beware llien Of thc Critical age Iron
forty to (illy, as it sends many thousands lo
premature grave,—these Pills'should be lakci
it thut period of lile two or three tin.es '»
^eek
Want   of Slrcngili nnd  Energy.
Persons of sedentary habits, or those troubled in mind, working iu Factories or Coal
I'its, who ciinnot obtain that amount ol frest
air and exercise which nature requires, suffer
from weakness and delility, lowness of sp*iri:s
and wanl of appetite. All such should 'ako i
lose or two rft these I'ills every Ihree or foil",
days, as they act gently and etl'cctiinlly nn ths
system and impart vigor and energy lo tha
body, which is always followed by a good
appetite, sound and refreshing sleep, and a
high flow of spirits.
For the Cure of. Dropsy.
The cflflc cy of Holloway's Pills in Dropsy
is extraordinary. Tl,"y act with such a peculiar effect upon the system, that tha fluid*
causing this direlul complaint, nre petccptibl
carried off and prevented from any fnrthel
accumuhition. Thc sufleret regains a buoyancy of spirits and rejoices in a completely
renovated coustitution. It is indispensably
necessary that the Oiniment should be most
effectually rutobed into the complaining parid
during the whole course of treatment.
Children and their Allmrntr*
In no country io the world arc more children
carried to nn early grave than in Great Enteni.
Coughs, Measles, Scarlatina, Fevers, and other
Jiscases attack the little sufferers, apd death,
hut too often, follows at a rapid pace ; yet If
at the first stage ol ibese complaints, parentu
were to have recourse to Holloway's Pills, all
danger wouli? be avoided , for the stomach
nnd bowels wooK tie gently bat efectually
cleansed bv this nilu aperient; the depraved
nuntOTs correcteo ana mesecretions duiy regulated. A perfect cure would -oon be effected, and tbe I'ttlepptient restored to gonn''
health.
