"Jon.v BiuciiT."
"Black-heath, May 19th.
" Dear Sir,—I entirely approve and
applaud the object of the meeting to be
held on Monday next on Primrose Hill—
that of encouraging and strengthening
tho Qorernment in resisting all compromise in the leading provisions of tbe Reform Bill. I am greatly obliged by your
very cordial invitation to attend the meeting, but my absence from town will pre*,
vent my being present at it.
I am, &c,
"J. 8. Mill."
Tlie Reformers In England.
The following letters from Mr. Bright
and John Stuart Mill were read at a political meeting ot Primrose Hill, shortly
before the defeat of the Liberal Government. They Bbow how determined both
gentlemen aro on the question of reform,
and the responsibility which is imposed
on the British masses now that reform
has been rejected :
" Rochdale, May lOlli.
" Dear Sir,—I thank you  for your in_
vitation to  the meeting  to bo held on
Monday, bnt I am not ablo to bo present
at it.   I hope all your friends will understand the  exact position  of the Reform
question.   Tbe main portions of the objections made to the  Franchise Bill on
the second reading were mere pretences ;
there was no  truth in them.   Tho only
real objection was against the admission
of any portion of the working men to the
suffrage.   Tbe same game will be played
hereafter.    There will bo resolutions saying  one  thing   and   meaning another.
Everything will   be   criticised,  but tbe
thing really hated and feared will bo the
extension of the franchise to the working
men.   The Government Distribution of
Seats Bill, I fear, is not good enough to
excite the hostility of the Conservatives,
or of those from the Liberal ranks who
have joined them, as it has little in it to
excite enthusiasm or favor among tbe people.   It will be opposed chiefly because
it is henceforth  a part of the bill which
offers the franchise to working men, and
because a rejection of any considerable or
important part of tho bill will be the rejection  of the whole.   The  Tory party,
and those from the Liberal ranks  who
join it, are animated by an unchangeable
hostility to any bill wbich gives the franchise to tbe  working men.   They object
to any transfer of power from those who
now possess it, and they object to share
tbeir power with  any increased number
of their countrymen who form tho working class.   Tbey   regard tbe   workmen
here as the Southern planter regards tbe
negroes who were so lately bis slaves.
They can no longer tie bought or sold ; so
far they are free men.   They may work
and pay taxes, but they must not vote.
They must obey tho laws, but must have
no share in selecting the men who are to
make them.   The future position of the
millions of working men in tbe United
Kingdom is now determined, if tbe oppo
sition of tbe Tory party is to prevail- it
is precisely that fixed by the Southern
planter for the negro.   Millions of workmen will bear this in mind ; tbey will
now know the point or the gulf which
separates one party from the other in the
House of Commons.   There will bo great
efforts made to induce tbe Government
to abandon the line of £11 for the county, and tV  for the  borough  franchise.
If the Government yields it will probably
destroy itself, and it will leave the question open for the next Parliament—for
no man Can suppose the suffrage question
settled for the term of a single Parliament, on the  basis of a departure from
the figures of the present   bill.   Lord
Derby's  bill of 1659  proposed   a £10
franchise for counties, and Lord Palmer-
ston's bill of I860 offered the same county
franchise, and a £6 franchise for borongbs.
If anything Jess or worse than a £14 aud
ill franchise be now  carried  there will
not be a single reformer In the kingdom
who will not be at liberty, when the bill
is passed,  to petitiou or to more   tbe
House for a further extension of the suffrage.   I   hope yon   may  hare a good
meeting, but I shall  regard it onlv as
preliminary to the meetings yon will hold
if tbe moderate measure now before the
House should be mutilated  or  rejeoted.
Working men everywhere should feel that
the real position and future of their class
A Respectable Ally.—Protected
States in India always will be difficult to
manage. If we do not interfere with tbe
succession, tbe chances are that we get a
prince who is impracticable as well as incapable. He thinks, and his people think
too, that we did not iiieddl s solely because we were afraid ; and hence, sooner
or later, there is sure to be a quarrel. On
tho other hand, our nominees and proteges generally tnrn out so very ill that the
resident, obliged to look on all kinds of
villainy, dono in relianco of British support, has but a poor time of it. The Na-
wab of Bhawulpore, son of that Bhawk
Khan who helped us at the siege of Mool-
ton, and got £10,000 a year from Lord
Dolhousie for his peins, has just been poisoned, they say. Tho Scindian quaintly
romarks, "Tbe death of such a ruler is
not to be deplored ;" though wo may
hove, according to precedent, to " settle
the succession." Certainly, '.he late Na-
wab's rule seems to have been just such
as will always provoke the tho violence
whereby despotism is proverbially tempered iu the East. The moment be camo
to the throne,hc murdered his father's old
vizier, who had been bis old tutor, imprisoned three uncles, whom he soon put
to death, and then swore on the Koran
that be would not harm a number of other
relations who had escaped into British
territory. The moment these refugees
came back across the frontier they wore
butchered, and wbon at last the British
interfered, und demanded the families of
tho murdered chiefs, the poor creatures
were hunted naked out of Bhawulpore.
\o wonder his brother, Saadut Khan, was
able to dethrone the tyrant; bnt the Na-
wab soon got back again ; and when
Saadut Khan made a second attempt,
and, relying on a hatred of tyrants, " had
(as a Punjab public document expresses
it) the effrontery to ask aid from our Government,'' he was seized and put into
tbo fort of Lahore, where he died. Since
tbe " divine right of insurrection" has
beeu invoked incessantly, but without success. The Nawab had plenty of enorgy
and was cautious withal; he used to try
all his food ou bis dogs, and had all his
water brought from a distance in sealed
vessels under the special charge of a favorite. Not that he drank much water.
When presents of wine and brandy were
made to him he used to ask how many
glasses of each sort would make a man
drunk, wishing to take just so much aud
no more ef tbe valuable liquids. On the
whole, wo could hardly be proud of such
an "ally.'' Tho mischief is, there are a
good many more like him ; and while this
is the case the advocates of annexation
will always bo able to plead humanity as
self-iuterest in favor of their policy.—

GEORGE   ROBINSON,
Propriet WEDNESDAY EVENING, JULY  18, 1866.
BaHkroptcy Coubt—Re Estate of Mecredy
—The assignees of the bankrupt under tha
deed of assignment for the benefit of creditors, and also other parties who were supposed to have possession of goods belonging
to Mecredy and unaccounted for, were summoned to answer before the court. Mr. Copland appeared for certain creditors, Mr. Bishop for other parties, and Mr. Jackson for the
assignees. Mr. Bishop took an objection in
limine tbat the order signed by the Chief Justice had been altered alter such signing and
that it was of no effect. Mr. Coplaud said he
had altered it before the signature was affixed.
On enquiry of tbe Registrar of the Court,
tbat officer stated that it had been altered
subsequently, and produced a copy of tbe
order made previously to tbe signing containing the fact. His Houor observed tbat Mr.
Copland had saade a grave charge, bad con-
dradicted an officer of tho court in an important point and if he persisted in his statement
an enquiry must bo instituted which would
necessarily result in the ruin of either Mr.
Copland or the officer of the court. Mr. Copland then stated it bad been his impression,
but be withdrew it. On tbe further hearing
of the case the Judge dismissed the summons
with costs. Estate of Macdonald—A long
enquiry into the affairs of this estate took
place and as to the advisabiliiy of selling tbe
property at Esquimalt a portion of the assets.
His Honor considered that he thought it un-
advisable to sell tbe property at present, but
required further information on this as well
aa on other points previous to the court on
Wednesday, the 1st August. Re Rabson—On
enquiry herein and application, Rabson was
ordered to have bis final discharge. Mr.
Courtney for Rabson and Mr. Jackson for the
assignees.
Assault.—John Clark charged Thomas
Pamphlett in the police court to-day with assaulting him on Saturday last. It appeared
that the parties' dogs first fought, which
seemed to inspire their owners with pugnacious feelings, ns they immediately followed
Buit. Clarke alleged that Pamphlett struck
him several blows on the bead and faco, but
it was proved that he only pushed him over a
wood pile, and Mr. Pemberton let defendant
off with a fine of $5.
The Fioelitxr-Alxxanuba Case.—The
plaintiffs moved for a new trial in tbis case
to-day. Attorney-General Wood stated that
the matter had been arranged, tbe defendants
having agreed to pay $6000 and costs.

for the above amount.

Frankel bad sued tbe Assignees fur a number of furs shipped toMalowanski in the .North
Star, and contracted to be told by Malowanski
to Frankel about tbe 12tb of January last.
On tbe escape of Malowanski tbe assignees bad
seized them. The jury found a verdict fur
tbe defendants, un the grounds that Malowanski bad contemplated a fraudulent preli-r-
ence iu delivering the furs to Frankel, though
the latter acted in good faith ; but tbe Chief
Justice set aside this verdict, after argument,
On the ground that as the delivery by Malo-
wanBki was in pursuance of his contract iu
January, the circumstance that he delivered
them with a fraudulent intention was immaterial. Leave bad been reserved to tbe plaintiffs at the trial to move on these points.

The 71mm of July 4lh says : Horrible
as the carnage bus been it must he looked
upon as a mere prelude to a pitched battle now unavoidable, in which a quarter
of a million of men will probably be eu-
gaged ou either side.
Faiithkii Point, July 10—The Nova
Scotia brings dates via Londonderry of
tbe Cth. A greut battle took place ou
the 3d, near Sudoa, resulting in the Prussians obtaining a great aud complete victory. The battle lasted J2 hours, the
Austrians being coinmuiided by General
Henedek and tho Priissiuns by the King
iu person. The Prussiui.s met tho Aus
trims between Horsuwitz and Mouega-
grulz, aud until 10 a. in, the battle was
favorable to tbo Austrians; after that
hour the advantage was with the Prussians. At 9 p. m., after nn obstinate defence, the Prussians carried by storm the
strong position of the Austrians, after
which tho Austrians were quickly driven
out of the outer positions,* and by 7 p.m.,
were in full retreat to Kaniggratz pursued
by Prussian cavalry. The Austrians were
completely routed, tho road being strewed
with haggogo which they threw away.
The number killed and wounded on both
sides was great, but owing to tbe extent
of tbo battle, it has not yet been ascertained. The Prussians claim to have captured up to tbo evening of the 4th 14,000
wounded and prisoners, 116 cannon nnd
several flags. Three Austrian Archdukes
are reported wounded. Prince JLicliten-
stein and Prince Mudisenrn are prisoners.

To liriyluim Young—Sir ; A telegram

four men, styled "gentiles," bare been
murdered by Mormons, aud tbat there is
an apprehension of further danger to tbis

shall do so. Those murderers mast be
punished, and if your people resort to intimidation, those must cease.—All of our
people must enjoy equal rights within tbe
limits of our national domain —I know
little or nothing of the causes of local
trouble in Utah ; bat it is as well for you
to know tbat onr country is now fall of

would be pleased at a fair opportunity to
aveuige any wrongs you may commit
against any of our eiHfeus, even in tbat
remote region. I will soon have regular
troops in I tab aud on the road leading
there, when I hope we shall have reports
on which to base accurate opinions ; and
I send you this message not as a threat,

A New and Guano Epoch in Medicine 1—
Dr. Maggiel is tbe founder ol a new Medical
system. The quantitarians, whose vast internal doses enfeeble the stomach and paralyze
tbe bowels, must give precedence to tbe man
who restores health and appetite, with from
one to two of his extraordinary Pills, and
cures the most virulent sores with a box or so
ol bis wonderful and all healing Salve. These
two great specifics of the Doctors are fast superseding all tbe stereotyped nostrums of the
day. Extraordinary cures by Maggiel's Pills
and Salve have opened tbe eyes of the public
to tbe inefficiency of the (so called) remedies
of others, and upon which people have so long
blindly depended. Maggiel's Pills are no ol
tbe class tbat are swallowed by tbe dozen, and
of which every box full takeu creates an absolute, necessity for another. One or two of
Maggiel's Pills suffices to place the bowels in
perfect ordar, tone the stomach, create an appetite, and render tbe spirits light and buoyant I There is no griping, and no reaction in
the form of constipation. If tbe liver is affected, its functions are restored; and it tbe
nervous system is feeble, it is invigorated.
This last quality makes the medicines very
desirable lor tbe wants of delicate females.
Ulcerous and eruptive diseases are literally
extinguished by the disinfectant power of
Maggiel's Salve. In fact, it is here announced
that Maggiel'd Bilious, i»jHpeptlc
and Dlarrbea Pilli cure where all
others fail. While for Burns, Scalds, Chilblains, Cuts and all abrasions of tbe skin
Irlnggiel'n Salve is infallible. Sold by

J>3 Attempted Murder of a
Informer.
Fenian
[From the London Times.]
One of tbe most daring, deliberate, and
coolly executed attempts at assassination
ever made in this country took  place  on
Sunday night at  Hovrth.    Warner,  the
approver, who gavo evidence against tbe
Fenian prisoners during the trials at  tbe
late Special Commission, bad been living
at Clontarf, under tbe protection of tbe
constabulary.    Although aware that  be
is tbe object of iutense hatred, he imprudently exposed himself while there, having
gone into a puhlicbouse, and exhibited a
pistol, which was taken from bim, and he
was at the same time   terribly   beaten
He was consequently removed to Howth
where, with his wife and six children, he
lodged io a house next door to the con
stabulary station, and was under tbe-pro-
tection of a sub-constable named Tormy.
On Sunday evening, about eight o'clock,
Warner and his protector were standing
against the wall of tbe graveyard about
ten yards from tbe police barracks, when
they were accosted by a strange man, who
inquired the name of tho graveyard, aod
then got into conversation with them, and
ultimately invited them to have some drink
at a publichouse.   Tormy refused to go,
stating tbat be  belonged  to tbe police.
The stranger then enquired where tbey
lived,  said he  was hungry, and asked
whether tbey knew a place where be conld
get refreshments.   Warner, who is said
not to have been quite sober, then invited
bim to take tea witb him at his lodgings.
The visitor was introduced to Mrs. Warner, and made himself so agreeable  that
several bottles of porter were afterwards
brought in and  consumed.    About half-
past ten o'clock tbe man, who gave bis
name as O'Connor, expressed a wish  to
stay all night if he conld get a bed.   Tbe
landlady said she would give one sooner
than let bim out at tbat late hour.    The
offer was thankfully accepted, but before
retiring to rest O'Connor asked Warner
to be good enough to show him tho way to
tbe back yard.   He did so, and as soon as
they got outside of the door O'Connor
stabbed   him in tho neck behind tbe ear
with a dagger abont six inches long.   It
pierced the collar of tbe coat, vest and
shirt, and inflicted a wound about an inch
deep, striking against tbe bono, but cutting no arteries. The wound, though dangerous, was not mortal, and Warner, wbo
is a courageous man, of great muscular
power, about forty years of  age, turning
instantly, seized bis assailant by the collar, a  desperate   struggle   ensued, and
O'Connor was able to  escape   only by
leaving behind him his coat, vest and hat.
He also  left the dagger, and in his coat
pocket was a six chamber revolver, loaded
with   two  bullets in each chamber, and
capped.   O'Connor escaped  by jumping
over the wall.    He had a return ticket for
that day, and no doubt intended to have
perpetrated the murder in time to get back
to Dublin by the last train, bnt not being
able to accomplish that, and being without
bat or coat, ho seems to have walked along
the railway.    Warner rushed into the
house, bleeding profusely, and shouting
' Murder 1'  when Tormy ran out without
waiting to dress, pistol in hand, but too
late.   Dr. Rnrkc, of Baldoylo, was immediately sent for, and urrived about half-
past 11 o'clock, when he bound np the
wound  and   stopped   tbe   hemorrhage.
The constabulary were instantly in motion
to arrest the fugitive   Head constable
Keown  having sent bis men ont in all
directions took a car himself and drove
rapidly into town, rousing the constabulary at every station on the way, and
giving notice at the detective office in
Dublin.   The consequence was that the
whole country was sconred by the police
and at about half-past three o'clock in the
morning the Clontarf constabulary saw
O'Oonner on the road near the junction,
with nothing on bnt his shirt and trousers'
and carrying his boots under his arm!
After a smart run he was captured   by
Constables   Patton   and    McLonghlin.
Tbe prisoner was brought before the local
magistrates, Messrs. Flood and Lawrence,
by whom be was remanded  and sent to
Ktlmainham gaol, having taken the evidence of Worner and bis wife. Tormy
and the constables by whom he was arrested.   The police think that O'Connor
is a false name, and that the prisoner is
no other than Richard Kearney, who shot
V -Neill, the policeman, and for whose arrest a large reward had been offered.   If
this be so, his audacity is wonderful and
he must have counted on an extraordinary
want of discernment iu the polioo    He is
about 26 years of age, and 5 feet 6 inches
in height.   He states that he is by trade
a leather cutter.   Dr. Rorke says that he
cannot pronounce a positive opinion about
bis patient for a day or two.

FACTS vs- THEORIES-
"Give me a place to rest my lever on,"
says Archimedes, " and I will move tbe
world." "Give me pure and unadulterated
drugs," lays Medicus, of the olden time,
"and I will cure disease."
In one sense, both of these learned pundits
were the veriest charlatans. Tbey knew there
was no place to rest their lever on, either to
move tbe world or cure disease. Mechanism
was in a backward state, and the medical profession was but another name for sorcery,
and all the adjuncts of magic filters and
charms of tbe " evil eye," 4c.
But these latter days have borne unto us
something more tban even superstition and
its crew ever dreamt of in tbeir maddest philosophy. In these days of practical science,
what was theory ol yesterday if fact to-day,
And all the old time notions become as bubbles
io tbe tun, and burst and break witb every
breath we draw.
Let Archimedes shoulder his lever and we
will find a retting place for it to move the
world. Let mine ancient Medicus pant and
toil no more for the drugs be so sorely needs,
lor we have tbem at our band, ever ready to
serve tbem at hit beck.
Refined in the laboratory of Dr. Maggiel,
the finest materials known In the medical profession are obtainable by any one. His
Blllious, Dyspeptic, and Diarrbcea Pills stand
unrivalled, and bis Salve operates with magical effect upon burns, scalds, and all sores and
ulcers of the skin.  »j§'
In fact, we think-HAiiom,. Pills and Salve
are the wonder of tbis century, and we are
happy in the thought that many others of our
brethren of tbe craft agree with us. We would
earnestly counsel that all families provide
themselves with Dr. Maggiel's Prepaiations at
once, and keep them ready at baud, so as to
use them at the most opportune time and as
occasion servos.— Valley Sentinel.

THE GREAT   KEMEDY  OF  THE
-AGE.
HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT.
Tbe   effect   ot the   Ointment   on   the
System.
To the very core and centre of all diseases
which affect the human body, this remarkable
preparation penetrates. It disappears under
the friction of the hands, aa salt disappears
when rubbed u,ion meat. Tbe unguent performs its healing errand rapidly, safely, aad
without pain. Simple eruptions, open sores,
hard tumors, scrofulous developments of all
kinds, abcesses, cancers, old wounes. and, in
tact, every species of inflammation and sup.
puration, whether iu the skin, tho flesh, the
glands, or among the muscles, can be arrcsteb
in itt destructive course, und permanently
cured without danger by rubbing in this inestimable Ointment.
Bad, Leg.,  Bad   Itr.-ust w,r  Sore.,   and
Ulcere.
In many Hospitals in Kurope this celebrated
remedy is now used for tho cure of old wounds,
sores, and ulcers; in Spain and Portugal, and
in many parts of Italy, the first Physicians re-
regularly 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
tho chest of nearly every sailor, soldier, and
emigrant.
liuprudenclea   of   Youth ; -Mores   und
Ulcere.
The above class of complaints is surely re
ooved by nightly fomenting tho parts witt
.farm water, and then by most effectually rub
ping in tbis Ointment. Persons suffering froa
these direful complaints should lose not a mo
ment in arresting their progress. It should hi
understood that it is not sufficient merely to
smear tbe Ointment on tho affected parts, bul
it must be well rubbed in for some considerabli
time two or three times a day, tbat it may be
taken into the system, whence it will remov.
only hidden sore or won .id as effectually a,
though it were palpable to the eye. Bread and
water poultices, after the rubbing in of tt
Ointment, will do great service. This is th.
dnly proper treatment for females in cases oi

humor from the system, and leave the patten

Dlptherlis,   Bronchitis, Bote   Throats,
Any of tho above class of diseases may be
-urcd by well rubbing the Ointment three
JmeB a day upon the skin covering the throat,
chest, and neck ol tbo patient. The unguent
will soon rjenetrate the pores and give immediate relief. To allay the fever and lessen tha
inflamation, eight or ten Pills should be takon
night and morning. The Ointment will pro-,
dnce perspiration, which is so essential for
remoTing fevers, sore throats, and those oppressions of the chest which arise from
Asthma, Bronchitis, and other causes.

THE ONE THING   WANTED.
HOLLOWAY'S PILLS.
Tbe Blood.
These famous pills are so composed tha
they operate wholesomely on tbe stomach, the
liver, the bowels, and other organs; by correcting any derangements in tbeir functions,
whereby a steady supply of pure materials tor
the renewal of the Blood is furnished, and a
constant abstraction of effete products is effected. This perfect circulation thus becomes
the very fountain of health and life, nnd overcomes all form of disease wherever its situation.
General Disorders or the Liver
aud Stott-ach.
All who ever indulge a' table, either in eating or drinking, should take about ten of t!:es-
famons pills at bed time, from which will roo
suit a clear head and good stomach the following morning. Thousands of Ladies are always complaining of sick headaches, want of
appetite, want of energy, and want of strength,
to correct all these evils, three or four of these
Pills should bo taken twice a week, when they
would give tho invalid tho health anil uppetitn
of a ploughman.
Females or all Ages aud C'lasse*
Obstructions ol any kind, either in young
or those between forty and fifty—the most critical poriod of life —may bo radically re_io7?d
by using these Pills according to the printed
directions whioh accompany each box. Young
persons with sickly anil sallow complexions
may have tho bloom of health restored by I hi,-
corrective, which purifies tho blood and ex-
pols all gross and impuro humors from the system. Beware then of the critical age fron
forty to fifty, as it sends many thousands to
premature grave,—these Pills should bo take,
it that period of lite two or three times a
reek
Want   of Strength and .Energy.
Persons of sedentary habits, or those troubled in mind, working iu Factories or Coal
Pits, who cannot obtain tbat amount of fresh
air and exercise which nature requires, suffer
from weakness and delility, lowness of spirils
and want of appetite. All suoh should take s
dose or two of these Pills every three or foui
days, as tbey act gently and effectually on the
system and impart vigor and energy to the
body, wbicb is always followed by a good
appetite, sound and refreshing sleep, and a
high flow of spirits.
For the Cure of Dropsy.
The efficacy of Holloway's Pills in Dropsy
is extraordinary. They act with such a peculiar effect upon tho system, that the fluids
causing this direful complaint, are perceptibl
carried off and prevented from any furthet
accumulation. The sufferer regains a buoyancy of spirits, and rejoices in a completely
renovated constitution. It is indispensably
necessary tbat the Oiotment should be most
effectually rubbed into the complaining parts
during tho whole course of treatmont.
Children and their Ailments.
In no country in tbe world are more children
carried to an early grave than in Great Britain.
Coughs, Measles, Scarlatina, Fevers, and other
jiscases attack tbe little sufferers, and death,
but too often, follows at a rapid paco ; yet if
at the first stage of these complaints, parent,
were to have recourse to Holloway's Pills, all
