In a parish not 100 miles from Hexham there once resided a pastor whose
mercenary proclivities were frequently
spoken of by his Qock. One day nn old

" Give me a place to rest my lever on,"
says Archimodcs, " and I will move tho
world." " Give ine pure and unadulterated
drugs," says Medicos, of the olden time,
"aod I will cure disease."
Ia one sonse, both of these learned pundits
were the veriest charlatans. They knew there
was no place to rest their lever on, either to
move the world or cure disease. Meehanism
was in a backward state, and the medical profession was but anothci name for sorcery,
and all the adjuncts of magic filters and
charms of tho " evil eye," kc
But theso latter days have borne unto us
something more than even superstition and
its crew ever dreamt of in their maddest philosophy. In these days of practical science,
What was theory of yesterday ir fact to-day,
and all tho old time notions become ns bubbles
in the sun, and burst aod break with every
breath we draw.
Let Archimedes Bhonldcr his lever and we
will find a resting place for it to move the
world. Let mine ancient Medicus pant and
toll no more for the drugs he so so ely needs,
for we have them at our hand, ever ready to
serve them at his beck.
Refined in the laboratory of Dr. Magi, lei,
tho finest materials known In the medical pro
fession are obtainable by any one. His
Billious. Dyspeptic, anil Diarrhoea PilU stand
unrivalled, and his Salve operates with magical effect upon burns, scalds, ond all sores and
ulcers of the skin.
In fact, we think Maggisl's Pills and Salve
are the wonder of this century, and we are
happy in the thought that many others of our
brethren of the cralt agree with us. We wonld
earnestly counsel that all families provide
themselves with Dr. Maggiel's Prepaiations ai
once, and keep them ready at band, ao as to
use them at tbe most opportune time and as

In many Hospitals in Europe this celebrated
remedy is now used lor the cure of old wounds,
sores, and ulcers ; in Spain aud Portugal, and
in many pans of Italy, the first Physicians re-
regulaiiy prescribe its use. It is a sovereign
remedy for bad breasts and bad legs; and likewise for all skin diseases. It is to be found in
t,.e chest of nearly every sailor, soldier, and
emigrant.

The above class of complaints Ib surely re.
noved by nightly fomenting the parts with

these direful complaints should lose not a mo
ment in arresting their progress. It should hi
urderstood that it is not sufficient meiiiy to
tmear the Ointment on the affected parts, bul
it must be well rubbed in lor some considerable
time tW" or three times a day, thai il may be
taken into the system, whence it will remov.
only hidden sore or wound as effectually a.
though it were palpable to the eye. Bread ond

onlv proper treatment for females in cases cl

Piles, Fistulas, Ktrlcturea.
Blotches, as also swellings, can with certainty
be radically cured if the Oiniment be used

When treated in auy otherway these complaint,
jnly dry up in one place to break cut in an-

Any of the above class of diseases may be

THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST30, 1866.
A   IMtOFOI \lt   RIMSOVLit.
Our morning contemporary is always
sadly at  funk   when   diictMatatf  public
queslions.    No nutter wlmt ure its views
to day, or what tliry liuvn lii-ni ycsti-riliiy,
i'. ia certain to go in Botsgoniam   lb   nol
only |ttiiilic intertit  Out rationality.   Jn
review.iirf tlio po.-itiuii of tbe   .Wcmbly
nml   tbo   Coiitii.il,   it  hiys ibis iiioriiin^
thai   tlio   Lower House, in refilling tbe
Council's niiiiiiiliiiiiiits to tbe supply  hill,
"declined to snrremler the power which
they indubitably possess  of  determining
the manner in which the   public   monies
shall    bo    expended."      It    wus   only
the   day   before   it  said   the   Assembly   wnB   acting    unconstitutionally    in
determining    bow    the    public   monies
should be Fpeut ; nnd  in the very editorial of this  morning  in  which it  avers
the House ban  the right, it tells its readers thut  the Upper House,  in  opposing
" the unconstitutional power of initiating
money votes,1' that is of saying in what
" maimer the public monies shall be expended," "are entitled to the warm support of every lover uf the coluny."    This
is certainly novel reasoning.    Tho Honse
cf Assembly are right in asserting a certain claim and tbe Upper House are light
in denying that claim!   Thc right to initiate money votes is  simply the right to
" determine  the   manner  in  which  the
public monies shall be expended'  and uo.
thing more.   Tho Executive sends down
the estimates of the revenue nud expenditure nnd the Assembly proceeds to determine how the revenue  shall be applied,
If its duties wero confined  to merely reducing or expunging items proposed by
the Executive, it is very clear it could not
determine the manner iu which  the public monies should bo spent—it could be
merely  saying   how   the public   money
ehall   not be spent.     So  much   for  tho
muddle   into   which the   Chronicle   hits
fallen  in its attempts  to  keep first on
ono side  and  then on  thc other.   This
is, however, not the only laughable blutu
der it made.   It says to„duy His Excellency bas  two courses to follow—to dis-
■churge tho officials for the timo being or
accept tho Assembly's supply bill without
the sanction of the  Council.    To adopt
the first course it says would be no saving
-of expense, for the officials would have to
le paid next year.    If the House can prevent the  officials  being paid this  year,
what is there to prevent tlieir being paid
next year or  any  year; und from what
source does  our contemporary derive his
information  when  he  suys salaries   not
sanctioned by law this year must he paid
next year ?   But we are told if His Excellency accepts the Assembly's bill without
the sanction  of the Council his -course
would be " unconstitutional ;'' and excopt
the expenditure be in accordance with the
demands of the Assembly it  would not
receive   the   approval   of  the   Colonial
Office.'1   This beats Dogberry's reasoning
hollow.   If His Excellency accepts the
Assembly's bill    without   tho   Council's
sauctiou, wc ure told it will be uuconslL
ttttiouol, and consequently cunnot be approved by the Colonial Office ; if he does
not adhere to thu Assembly's bill it will
also not meet with thc approval of the
Colonial office.    Our contemporary  has
very correctly  headed   his  article " The
Dilemma ;" but it is the editor be shows
is in the  dilemma, not the Governor.
One more specimen and  wo  havo done.
Ho says:   '"The duty of tho Council in
the matter was simple und plain.   Tliey
should have struck out the unconstitutional
portions of the bill nud sent it down stairs
again.   This action would no doubt have
been approved by the Lower House, out]
the miserable business would have been at
an end for the  session."    We defy  any
person to compress in the same  space as
tbe above a greater number of absurdities
It was only yesterday the House passed
unanimously a resolution repudiating any
attempt  ou  tho part of tho Council to
amend  the  Appropriation  bill,  denying
the right of the Upper House to do anything but accept the bill in its entirety or
reject it in Us entirety.   And yet with
this resolution before his eyes our contem.
porary obliviously says it has no doubt the
House would have accepted the Council's
Striking out  those portions  of the bill,
which iu its lucid mind ure  " unconstitutional."   The Assembly passed the Supply
Bill unanimously— they passed  the  resolution  yosterday prohibiting the Council

Tho cdic.icy of Holloway's Pills in Dropsy
is extraordinary. Tb?y act with such a peculiar effect upon the system, that the fluid*
causing this direful complaint, are perceptibl
carried otf and prevented from any lurthef
accumulation. The suflerer regains a buoyancy of spirits and rejoices in a completely
renovated constitution.' It is indispensably
necessary thnt the Ointment should be most

In no country in Ibe world are more children
carried to an early grave than in Great Grilnin.

jiseases attack the little sufferers, and death,,
hut too often, follows at a rapid pace ; yet if

were to have recourse to Holloway's Pills, all
danger would be avoided, for the stomacb

soldiers who robbed Mr. Locke's safe at
Steilacoom last week were arrested last Tuesday about 20 miles south of Olympia by a

night before and whose suspicions tbey
aroused by offering their army muskets for
something to eat. Mr. Colvin procured some
assistance aud pursued them, wbeu the men
bolted, bnt were fired on by the pursuers, one
being shot dead, and another wounded in the

Wair Shot.—A very large black wolt was
shot on tho Uplands Farm this morning, by
one of two men living in a cabin in that

put a stop to his rapacity. The carcase was
brought into to*n and exhibited before the

notice. The species is very rare, even in the

of this specimen so near the city is a somewhat strange circumstance.

New Youk, Aug. 28—The New York
Times' correspondent suys indications
point to the ppeedy downfall of the Mexican Empire. From Telinantepee on the
lower Pacific coast to the extreme northern frontier every seaport is cloBcly bo-
sio^'ed by their outlawed Liberal enemies.
The wholo liue of the northern frontier
States as far east as Mutaiuorus on the
Hio Grande, nnd Bagdad at that river's
mouth is held by tho Liberals. On the
const of the Gulf of Mexico the Empire
holds one available senpoft, still we are
told that even Vera Cruz is kept in a
constant stale of alarm by tho close
proximity of large Liberal bands. Jalapa,
Sau Luis Potosi, and Michoacan are still
in an actual state of siege. The capital,
Puebla, and Orizaba are seriously threatened by Generals Diaz and F.qtieroa.
Marshal Bazaine, who started northward
with the intention of engaging Juarez's
main army nnd forcing it into the territory of tho United States, was hurrying
back to the rescue of the capital, General Negra, Commander-in-Chief of Mex-'
ico und surrounding departments, will
leave for Puebla the momeut Buzniue
arrives. The French army . are now
powerless. There are at least one hundred thousand Liberals in the field.
