A fashionable party is now called n
'daiiRhterculttiral show.'
When is literary work like smoke ?—
When it comes in volumes.
Sententious Epitaph in a Rustic Ceme-
I  try :—'Tlio rotlin, not forgottin.'
At what timo should nn innkeeper visit
an iron-foundry ?—When he wants a barmaid.
Why is a cat going up three flights of
stairs like a big hill 1—Because she is a
mount in.
Why is a piece cf sterile ground like a
certain toilet nrtie'e ?—liecause it's bare
soil (bear's oil).
Fenian sisterhoods, snys r. writer, nre

Qreat changes and resolutions affect

Why is England the richest country in
Iho world ? —liccause it has a Dm] more

A contemporary, alluding to the
Oceanic Telegraph, wonders whether the
news transmitted through suit water will
be fresh.
Why its the snspension of the Habeas
Corpus Act in Ireland beneficial to the
Fi-iiinnaT—Because it quicker tlieir apprehension.
A partizau paper says, ' It is a mistake
that the (opposite) party plays upon a
harp of a thousand string-. Tne organ
of that pnrty is a tyre.'
Il hns nt length been discovered that
the long-talked ol individual iu the ' brass
coat nnd blue buttons' is brother to the
innn who Wears a weed wiih a while hat
round it.
A person wns pointed out lo a cooper
who hud ii profusion of rings on his lliu-
gers. 'Ah, master,' said the artisan, 'it's
a sure sign of ivcukncs* when so inm.y
hoops nre used.'
An Irishman wns riding wilh a rogue,
who, as they trotted by a gibbet, asked
his companion where he would be if that
gallows had its due, and received the
capital reply, 'I'd bo riding by myself.'
' Mrs. tirimes, lend me your tub.'
'Han't do il—the hoops are off—it's full
of suds—besides, I never had one—I
washes in u barrel, and wants to use the
tub mysel!—besides, I've lent it to a
neighbour, who hasn't returned It.'
Dr. Johnson's defini.ion of a note of
id miration (I), made ou the moment, is
tery neat:—
I see—I tee—I know not what,
I see a da-h above a dot,
Presenting to my contemplation
A perfect point of admiration.

A Niw and Grand Epoch in Mioicini 1—
Dr. Maggiel is the foundi« ot n new Medical
•yslem. Tbe quantilariaus, whose vnst internal doses enfeeble the stomach and paralyze
the bowels, must glvo precedence to the man
who restores health and appetite, with from
nne to two of his exlrnordinary Pills, nnd
cures the most virulent sores wiih a box or so
ol his wonderful and all healing Salve. These
two great specifics of the Doctors arc fast su.
perseding all the stereotyped nostrums of ihe
'liy. Extraordinary cures by Maggiel's Pills
"nil Salve have opened the eyes of tbe public
to the inefficiency of the (so called) remedies
of others, and upon which people have so long
hlindly depended. Maggiel's Pills are no ot
the class tbat are swallowed by the dozen, and
Of which every box fuM tnken creates an ub-
'nlute necessity for another. One or two i f
Maggiel's Pills suffices to place the bowels in
perfect order, tone the stomach, create an appetite, and render the spirits light and bucy-
*ttt I There is no griping, nnd no reaction in
'he form of constipation.. If tbe liver is effected, its functions are restored; and it the
nervous system is feeble, it is Invigorated.
This last quality makes the medicines very
•te'irahle tor tho wants of delicate females,
Ulcerous and erapiive diseases are literally
extinguished by tbe disinfectant power of
Maggiel's Salve. In fact, it is liere announced
'"»' MagfTiel'N Ul Ioum, l»j «rcpti<

others fail. While for Burns, Scalds, Chil

Ayer's Cathartic Pills.
THR sciences of Chemistry and Medicine have Iwen
taxed their utmost to product) this tieet. most perfect
purgatire which Is known to man. Innumerable proofs
are shown that these Pills have virtues which surpass Id
excellence the ordinary medicines, and that they win un*
precedentedly upon the esteem of all men. Tliey are safe
and pleasant to take, but powerful to core. Their penetrating propert ie* stimulate the vital activities of the t.... I v.
remove the obstructions of its organs, purify the blood,
■nd expel disease. They purge out the foul humors which
breed and grow distemper, stimulate sluggish or disordered organs into their natural action, and impart healthy
tone with strength to the wholo system. Not only da
they euro the every-day complaints of every body, but
al-'i formltlable and dangerous diseases that have baffled
the best of human skill. While they pr-xluce powerful
effects, they arc at the same time, tn diminished doses, the
safijst and lest physic that can be employed for children.
Being sugar-coated, they are pleaaant to take; and being
purely vegetable, are free from any risk of harm. Cures
have been made which surpass belief were they not substantiated by men of such exalted position and character
M to forbid the suspicion of untruth. Many eminent
clergymen and physicians hare lent their names to certify to the public the reliability of my remedies, while others have sent me tho assurance of their conviction that
my Preparations contribute immensely to tl,ie relief of my
afflicted, suffering feltow-mrn. ,
The Agent below named Is pleased to furnish gratis my
American Almanac, containing directions for their use and
Certificate* of their cures, of the following complaints: —
Costiveness. Rillnns Complaints, Itheumatlsm, Dropsy,
Heartburn, Headache arising from a foul Stomach, \nu-
sea. Indigestion. Morbid I.mctfon of the Howels ami Tain
arising therefrom. Flatulency. Im of Appetite, all Ulcerous and Cutaneous Disease* which require an evacuant
Medicine. Scrofula or Kings Evil. They also, by purifying the blood and stimulating (he system, cure many
complaints which it would not l>e supposed they conn
reach, such as Deafness. Partial Blindness, Neuralgia and
Nervous Irritahilitv, Derangements of (he Liver and Kidneys, Gout, and other kindred complaints arising from a
low state of the body or obstruction of its functions.
Do not be put off by unprincipled dealers with some
other pill they make more profit on. Ask for Ayer's
Pills, and take nothing else. No other they can give
you compares with this in its intrinsic value or curative
powers. The sick want the beet aid there is for them,
and they should have it.

Collision at Ska. — t'apt. Holler of the
British ship Uelmoiit,.irbleli left Royal Roads
on Wednesday, lumber laden for To a Ion,
came into port lust night in a canoe, and reported that on Wednesday night he came into
collision with another vessel in the Straltl of
I'uca, opposite Sooke liurhor, during a thick
fog. The Belmont struck tie strungcr between the fore and uiuiu-m is's Carrying away
her own liowsprit and springing lierfurrmust.
Thc other vtssel must have received serious
injury ns Capt. Ilullcr says he struck her very
hard, and portions of her dc<d« load of lumber
were seen lloati.ig around niter the accident.
She, however, 3peedily disappeared in the
fog, nnd thc Ilelmont wns worked into Beecby
Hay, outside Race Rocks, where she wns
brought to anchor, and fuiind lo he making
no water. Capt. Duller, somewhat singularly, did not speak the strange vessel, so that
there ij no clue to what she was. There ll
no reason, however, for supposing tbat she
was thc Rndama, which left the Roads on thc
same day for China, p.s that vessel was laden
with spars and carried no deck load. A more
probable supposition is that It was some of
the regular San Framisco traders, who frequently load above thc deck-rail with lumber.
The occurrence of this disaster shows the
danger of neglecting the customary precaution in foggy waters, of ringing a fog-bell, or
blowing a born. 11. M. 8, Soodt wns sect
down to tho scene of the disaster Ibis morning, nud returned nbout 2 p. tn., wilh the
Ilelmont in tow. She could sec nothing of
any other vessel nor nny lumber Hoatiii;
about.

Ilie recent Europc.ui war     We  heard of

—how   in   a   few   weeks   one    of    Ihe

iu  our time, und only oaco  iu  the great
war of the French Kinpii'c bus there been
such a carnage,'' Tlie t'reat object of the
Prussians wus  to forca tba fighting—to
finish the  struggle  before Austria would
get up its   other army from  tho  Italian
frontiers, as it was boui d at all risks to do,
und thus reinforce the army of  Bohemia.
Ilenco   we   Iind  every uorve strained by

Times' description of this decisive conflict:
"Thero havo been," it says, "great vie
tories won with n comparatively email loss
of life-even to lbe vanquished.   An army
outmanoeuvred or outnumbered has of;en
abandoned ils.positions and  yielded  the
fruits of a campaign  to  the enemy.    But
tho battle of Sadowa was  won  step  by
s'ep, nnd tbo Prussians advanced to victory over thousands of  the   slum.    It  is
remarkable that thc losses  of  the   Austrians are placed higher by those who arc
among  them  than  by  tbe   conquerors'
Tbo gups in tie nrmy of Benedek are only
fully discerned by those wbo knew it before it met tht eneu.y.    Onr correspondent, writing three duys  after  tho  battle,
when the confusion wus beginning to subside, when  the'men   wero  finding  tlieir
w.iy back to their  regiments,  nud regiments, or what  was  left of   tbem, were
again  boing united  into   brigades  and
divisions, gives tlie less  of  the   beaten
army as probably rcore tlnn two-fifths
of its  whole  number.    'It may bc true,'
be   says,   ' tbat   eighty   thousand   men
wore   killed,   wounded,    taken    prisoners, or drowned, and that loO guns were
taken,  abandoned, or thrown   iuto the
river on the  retreat."    Adding to  these
losses the number of men who must bave
thrown awny  their arms   in   the retreat,
we must doubt whether 100,000 effective
men were to be found in the Army of tbe
North three days after the battle.    The
retreat was,  indeed, melancholy and disastrous.    As at Leipsic, wo hear of pou-
toons laden with  hundreds swept  down
the river nnd overturned with their living
cargoes—of artillery and horsemen crashing down upon and through tbo struggling
infantry, jamming them   in  the uarrow
ronds and hustling iheni over the bridges
into the waters.  In short, all tbat is most
horrible in warfare was concentrated into
this contest.    A long struggle, lasting the
entire duy,   the   mowing down ot whole
regiments by the fire of the enemy, the
-burning of villages, the horrible incidents
of a flight through nn inanda'ed country,
and,  finally,  the  long sufferings of the
disorganized  march that succeeded, form
a combination  at which  the imagination
is shocked and saddened.    It  is difficult
to  bring oneself lo   believe   that such
horrors  huve been  enacted in  our own
time uud in a region so near and familiar.''
