! these direful complaints should lose not a mo

i o^derftood thnt it is not sufficient irierely to

' time tw » or three limes a day, that   it may bo
taken into tbe system, whence it will remov.

though it wore palpable to the eye.    Bread and
water poultices, after  the   rubbing   in ol th.
Ointment, will do great service.   This is th,'
only proper treatment, for fenmles  in  cases ct
cancer in the stomach, or for those who suflr'

Piles, KiatiiliiH, Stricture*.
Blotches,04AltO swellings, can with certain!}
be radically cured if the Ointment be used

W hen treated in any othetWHy these complaint,
only dry up in one place to break cut in an«
ither; whereai this Ointment will remove thr
buitior from the system, and leave the patien

Any of the above class of diseases may be
"Ured by well rubbing the Ointment ihret
.imes a duy upon the skin covering tbe throat,
chest, and neck ot the patient. Thc unguent
will soon penetrate tbe pores und give iuiiued*
iate relief. To allay the fever and lessen iba
inflamation, eight or ten Pills should be lakes
night nnd m'Tuing. Thc Ointment will pio-
dnce peisplvaliun, which is so essential for

A rumor Ims been current tlic liwt fe*
weeks that uu mlil.tiuiinl duty hus to lie
pieced on rim! culrring llm United
Slutei. The minor, we ere jr'uil IO My,
is unfounded. The Tariff bill intro.lured
into Congress did contemplate increasing
the duty on bituminous coul to $1 50,
not $v! M us was currently re|Hirteil ; but
although the measure passed tbo House
of Ite|ircseninti»es hy 11 vole of 94 to 5.'l,
it wus shelved by the Senate ; so that 1
the old law exists in its entirety. It
may bo interesting to know that
a very nniiuated debate look plaen
on en amendment to discriminate so far
ni regards the article of coal in favor of
tbe British North American colonics, and
the amendment wus only defeated by
three of a majority ; tlie tii'inbers being
75 egainst und 12 iu favor. The proposition evidonlly met with warm supporters ; for the question wns again taken
up in the form of reconsidering the motion when it was defeated by only two ol
a majority. The hill was so late passing
the Lower House, that the Senate could
not entertain it, and so it was shelved ;
but it is certuiB lo he one of the lirst
measures lo be tuken up the ensuing bes-
sion.
Our position millces us, in spite of our—
eelves, interested iu American politics.
English ministers may go out and come
in, but beyond » faint hope that our (iov-
erniucnt mny be a little Improved we nre
not materially interested in the circumstance. We enre not, colonially spunking,
what is the nature of the English budget ;
very different, however, is it with the
revenuo laws of the United Slates. Our
egistence, as an industrial and «x port Ing
■country, depends on the tariff of our
republican neighbors. We live, in fact,
on American sufferance. liy ono blow
onr coal .production may bo annihilated ; our toade with the Sound
and Portland almost cut off. The
only market for our productions it>
the American market, and whether that
becomes iu the future ltirge or small depends not so much ou our own energy as
on the relations we hold with iho States.
Let our lumber, fish nnd coal be admitted
into American ports duty free, and we
defy panics, mining reverses, or commercial depressions. We may indulge in high
hopes and glowing anticipa'ions, but we
.shall have in tbo end to come down to
the plain practical question,— tiro we to
toe exclnded from the advantages of free
irade with our American neighbors?

Collegiate School last night. The Bishop of
Columbia Occupied the chair, and a huge and
respectable audieuco wpre assembled. Rev.
Mr. Doolan, who has recently arrived from
the mission, addressed tbe meeting, giving a
graphic nud somewhat humorous description
of lbe labors and difficulties of a missionary's
life emong tbe Indians, and of the progress
made in converting them io Christianity. We
have received a long report of hi* interesting
address, which, however, came to hand too
late for to-duy's issue.

STKAMSHir Monopoly.—A dispatch of thc
' 31 Bt, in thc Oreyonian, says: A rumor is
current that arrangements have been made
between tlie California Steam Navigation Co.
nnd the owners or agents of tho dilfercnt
opposition steamers running to Portland, Oregon, nnd down the southern coast, whereby
these stcamor have been induced to withdraw
in behalf of the company above named. It is
reported that thc Montana will make only oue
more trip before being laid up. On inquiry
of one of the agents he states that he has no
knowledge of any such arrangement, bu
there are some reasons for believing tbat tbo
rumor is not entirely without foundation.
Roiiukiit is Stkilacoom.—the Pacific Tribune says that 4 soldiers entered Mr. Lock's

A   I'.   S.   Ktl-RESINTiTIVt   KEPKlKANDen.— i
Some time ugu General Rousseau made a personal assault upon a Mr. Grinncll iu tbe V. S.
House of Rcprc-iMitutives, and waa in con:e-
ijin-ui-e ordered to be publicly reprimanded
for his conduct. A correspondent of Ihe
S. F. Mia thus descrlbesthc incident : " Gen.
Roiiisi-iin then advuiiccj mi 1 louk position in
front of tlie Speaker's desk, when the Speaker
■ddfeissd biut as follows:
"General Rousseau : The House of Representatives liai declared jot guilty of a violation of its rights and privileges in I premeditated personal ni-jault noon a member lor
words spoken iu debate. This coudeiuiiution
they liuvi- placed on their jourual, and buve
ordered tbat you be p-ibli -ly reprimanded by
tbe Speaker a I the bar of the House. No words
of m - ii c can add to the force of this order, iu
obedience to which 1 now denounce ou}uu
its reprimand.*'
Gen. Rousseuu returned to his seat, and a
few moments afterward retired from tlie Hall.
Every one gives credit to Speaker Colfax
for the delicate manner in which he worded
the reprimand.    Ilwas well done."
The Pacific RailuoaI).—The Denver A'eict
of the 3Utb ult., stales that on the Tuesday
previous there was laid on the i-oud approaching that point from Omaha, two miles und
two hundred feet of track; and that this is
