[From thc London Times.]
Another scanty instalment of the coming mail from
China has at last arrived, but, unfortunately, it adds
nothing of certainty to our knowledge of the fate of
the missing Englishmen who fell into the hands of the
Chinese. It docs not strengthen the hopes ivhich we
yesterday expressed of their safety; but wc know too
well the falacious character of telegrams to rest a conclusion upon any hurried and uncertain summary while
the details are so nearly within our reach. Vexacious
as tbe unusual lapse of time has been, it is still better
to wait; even although there is but too much reason
to believe thai our patience will uot be rewarded by
any very certain intelligence when the letters and papers do cone to hand. There are however, many questions involved iu this mystery now so anxiously discussed in every circle. Wc shall know in what condition Mr. Parker and Mr. Loch came back to camp, and
what their treatment 1ms been ; we shall know whnt
the information of these happily rescued men is ns to
the ill-treatment to which two of their companions
succumbed, and whether the twenty Englishmen who
were captured, and of whom eighteen are now accounted for, were ever together alter their capture. We shall
learn also how long the returned prisoners had been iu
camp before the lust advices left ; and, if they had but
just returned, wc may feel strengthened in our hope
thut the others were on the road. It is a sensitive and
thrilling topic on which to touch while there are hearts
here in England agonized by the uncertainty, and while
there is a possibility, and, as we believe, even probability, that the two missing men may be by this time
comfortably telling the tale of their captivity under
the roof of somj well-warmed joss-house within the
Englisll lines. But instructions are now going out
from a Cabinet which contains members who notoriously entertain strange notions us to thc rights of billiger-
ents even to poison wells. It may be absolutely necessary
to speak out. With the dark traditions of the prison of
('anion still in our memory, it is, we fear, necessary to
say what in other cases wc might expect might be felt
without our saying it,—that, alive or dead, those missing men must be produced. Eternal infamy would
cling to the Embassadors, the Generals, nnd thc armies
who should come back from Pekin without being able
to prove to the world by the palpable evidence of sense
that they have not left these men behind in the cruel
clutches of the Chinese. If the sack of the Emperor's
Palme has produced the restoration of Mr. Parkes and
Mr. Moth and M. L'Esclniyriic and our thirteen soldiers
—if the Chinese will answer only to such persuasives,
let us administer them day by day and hour by hour,
a« long as necessary, and, if there be no milder means
of coercion, even destroy Pekin; palace by palace and
temple by temple, and even house by house, until we
ulitaiu the release of our countrymen, or absolute proof
that they arc beyond human aid This is not a matter
on which the sound-hearted English people will endure
any maudlin sentiment, and we hope thai no such unmanly tone will steal cither into the despatches of the
Government or the action ol Lord Elgin.
The   Emperor nnd   thc Tartar  army are fled—fled
across tbo Great Wall and up to that Zeiho which is so
well known to us by the description of Staunton.    We
nee.) nol give much thought to this.    It was a movement long threatened and long foreseen, and to which
there is a ready countercheck,    lt is one of those childish devices which the  worshipers of official forms in
China aro so fond of inventing,  and which some worshipers of empty ollicinl forms in England accept quito
in a Chinaman's point of view.   The members of tho
different boards now in full Might upon that broad rond
upon which Lord .Macartney rolled in his English chariot doubtless clucklc  at the idea  that  they  have now
effectually bullied the barbarians, leaving them without
nn army to resist them or n  Government to treat with
iheni.    The .Municipality of Pekin now  take  up  the
wondrous tale of Chinese diplomacy,  and  propose  to
themselves to repent the precedent which has been so-
fiital to our relations with  the  Chinese, when  Elliott,
with General Gough upon the walls of Canton, accepted a ransom from the city, sold his conquest nnd  retreated to his ships.    That Sir Hope  Grant should require a contribution from tbe  city  at his mercy,  and
tli.it the "indemnity, ready when demanded" should be
demanded and secured, is in accordance  with all the
usages of war;   but that  the  Municipality of Pekin
should hope to be allowed,   by  a money  payment,  io
settle the Imperial questions which divide tne Courts
ol England and France and   Pekin, shows  a very impelled appreciation of lhe object of this  invasion  and
»f the intelligence ofthe Plenipotentiaries.   The Allied
Armies nre to winter in the North, and Lord Elgin  is
not so ready to avail himself of obvious  expedients  as
I w. take him to be if he does not very soon  find  me ns
to induce this Court and Government to  hurry back
I from Tartary.
^ Alter the decision which has been taken to winter in
'Hin we shall, however, wc hope, no longer pretend to
disguise from ourselves that we arc committed to a regular war.    We havo now chased away lhe Chinese Em-
| Pcror, sucked his Summer Palace, and taken possession
01 the fortifications  of his  capital.    Step by step  we
nave been drawn to do this by the obstinacy and perfidy
"f thc Mandarins, who trusted  to our forbearance  that
I've should never do it.    With a little bolder policy and
.'i little h'ss begging for peace, we might, perhaps have
I"'ie this needful journey to Pekin without having to
[P»8S a winter there. Wc must take things however, now
"1thoy ure.  Wc have 12,000 men, Europeans and Asia-
j»«M, holding a city of 2,000,000 inhabitants and a hun-
r'"i'.l and twenty miles of fiat country down  to the sea.
I '<' have also a fleet anchored in  a very shallow Gulf,
|npt io |,e vexed by storms.    Here are, doubtless, mntc-
■rm , *<" a nionste'r concert of lamentations, but, if Eng-
Ihum cannot do this, what do we pay our £_!0,000,000

accustomed to provide against them. As to provisions,
tbe same considerations occur. For fresh bee! and for
sheep they must trust to tbe "almighty dollar," which
is nowhere so omnipotent as in China; but Pekin is a
City winch lives as an army lives-by supplies from a
distance. The populace is fed from public granaries
contributed to it by all the provinces of the Empire.
As Rome was fed from Numidia, so Pekin is fed from
tlie subject provinces ofthe South. We aro sure that
our army will buy when there are sellers ; but while
these public granaries exist we have no fear that, if
there should not happen to be sellers, Sir Hope Grunt
will allow his men to guard these granaries und starve.

The following paragraph from thc London Times gives
some idea of the coal and coasting trade of the northern ports of England :
Suiblds Dec. 12.—Nearly 300 sail of laden vessels,
very many of them colliers for London, have been able
to get out from the Tyne this afternoon: and a proportionate number of vessels have left the Wear and Hartlepool and some of the other smaller ports. No vessels drawing more than 14 feet three inches were able
to get out of the Tyne. This morning before those
vessels sailed the enormous number of 1,400 sail, ncariv
all laden, were wind bound in the Tyne alone. The
wind is northerly, ami highly favorable to the vessels
that have sailed. The weather is much settled, and
strong hopes are entertained that by tomorrow or the
next day very many of the vessels that remain may be
got to sen.

It Expels  Disease.'
It is said that all productions of human skill have
their day, nnd are superceded by new inventions or discoveries. Not so with this remedy. "It is not for a
day. but for all time and in all countries.*' And why?
Because it strikes at the generic root of all diseases in
the blood, and medical art can accomplish nothing beyond that. The Ointment penetrating through Hesh
and fibre, like water through a porous substance,
reaches the germ or disease, such as scrofula, erysipelas, cancer, tumor, und all eruptive und ulcerous discharges in the circulation, and eradicates the taint at
once and forever in this climate.
Mad Legs.
This Ointment will cure any case of Bad Log even if
of twenty years standing, or however hard or discolored
the itesh may be, or if swollen the size of a person's
body, provided tho Ointnieut is well rubbed into the
whole ofthe parts affected twice a day in large quantities, nnd tbe parts kept covered with linncn rags thickly
spread with the Ointment; from this mode of treatment, a plentiful discharge of unhealthy humor will
follow, until the wounds are all healed on the leg, or
other parts assume their natural appearance.
Old Wounds, Sores, ami Ulcers.
The most inveterate cases of hud legs, scrofulous or
other sores, are cured, if of twenty years standing, by
the joint use of the Ointment and Pills. The effect of
this unrivalled remedy upon virulent ulcers and sores,
is almost miraculous, lt first discharges the poison
which produces suppuration and proud Hesh, and thus
the cures which its healing properties afterwards complete, are safe as well as permanent. It has n wonderful effect in tho cure of sores occasioned by musquetoes,
suud-llies or giggers.
This Ointment will cure thc worst cases of Piles if
used according to thc printed directions even if of 20
years standing.
Eruptions on the Skin.
Blotches, pimples dry eruptions, and all irritations of
the skin, fade and disappear after a few applications of
Holloway's Ointment. In these eases brisk friction is
indispensable. Many of the ordinary eruptions are
caused by suppressed perspiration, and as this penetrating unguent at once opens tlie pores, and iuvigor-
ates the absorbents, it dissipates the intlamation by a
double process. Ladies whose faces or arms are dis-
figurcd by cutaneous diseases, may readily remove the
ticinisli and restore to the skin its natural tiut flexi-
ntlity, and softness by the use of this safe but powerful counter-irritant.
lungs Evil, Fever Sores.
In cases of King's Evil where medicinal waters, lotions, and every recipe of pharmacopoeia have proved
useless, the Ointment will accomplish a thorough cure.
Fever sores heal quickly under its influence, and its relaxing effect upon contracted sinews is truly wonderful.
Rheumatism, Scrofula' Ergsipelas.
These arc among the most terrible and agonizing diseases, yet in thoir worst forms, and when seemingly in-
duiable, they invariably disappear under a persevering
application of this soothing, healing antidote to pain
and inflammation.
Roth the Ointment and the Pills should be used in the
following cases:—

Stiff Joints.
Glandular Swellings

IS the most valuable and unsurpassed remedy for
Rheumatism and Gout to bc found in the world, or
known at present. The discoverer of the above medicine does claim its infallibility iu all cases of Rheumatism and Gout—when used according to direction—and
docs offer a reward of five thousuud dollars to any
medicine that docs supersede it, and is entirely vegetable. The Doctor is enabled to offer the above reward
on account of his having used the ubov_> medicine for
ten years in his practice, and has never known it to
fail in .he cure of tho most protracted cases of Rberaa-
tisiu and Gout, and withstood all known remedies to
tho profession. Doctor Adolphus is known and rightly
celebrated throughout the State for his cures in Rheumatism, Gout and Chronic Diseases, and has only to
the continued urgent efforts of his patients, and through
the desire ty help them who arc. no. enabled to see him
personally, or to spend a fort unctb get rid oftho disease,
which they have contracted iu the pursuit of their daily
calling: only this has been able to persuade the Doctor
to give the above\modicine to the public, und nt such
terms that every suffering one should bc able to reap
its benefits.
As n Health Restorative its value supersedes all the
mineral wealth and riches of California; and is creating a revolution in the whole treatment of disease
throughout the world.
In the prevention of diseases, as Scrofula, Enlargement of the Glands, Dropsy, nnd all Nervous and Cutaneous Diseases, and thc whole train of Chronic Diseases,
which withstand nnd bailie the skill of the most excellent nud earned physicians iu the world; in Chronic
Discuses, whoso very name is a terror ns well to thc
physician as to the patient, this medicine has proved to
be superior to any in existence, and has cured in so
short a time that they appeared like being abolished by
magic influence, and in fact a few more such discoveries, and druggists will not need to keep a lot of useless medicines on hand, whenever they nre prescribed
once in a ten score, they have lost through time their
properties in which their value did reside, if there was
actually any in them
Take this medicine when your digestive organs are
disordered and your blood is impure ; it will surely act
on your bowels.
fake this medicine when you have a cold, and it will
make you perspire freely.
Take this medicine when your urinary and absorbing
organs are disordered, and it will act on your kidneys
—it penetrates every part of your body, searches even
the most remote and secret recesses of your system,
aud removes the disease located there—it restores
healthy action, and gives tone to every organ in the
human body—therefore it has righteously deserved the
name it bears: Health Rkstouative.
The Doctor, who is averse to all patent medicines,
wishes it to be understood that the above medicine is
no such thing; but that he has, through the introduction of this medicine with its treatise aud directions for
use, made every sufferer to bc his own physician in the
above-named diseases.
Thinking it under my dignity to follow the mode or
quacks, by appending certificates of physicians or private persons, which is too well known can bc had for
certain remunerations, applications of friends, or by thc
mode of boring a man half to death for evcu the most
worthless trash, I will therefore leave it to those in
want of medicine to inquire personally of men who
have been cured by my medicines, of the above disenses,
and who can be found iu almost every city and village
throughout the State. I consider such personal conviction far superior to certificates of persons that are
far from being known to them iu want of medical aid.
But should any one care for written testimonials or
certificates regarding the cures performed by this
medicine, they might call ut ray office, and I will show
them certificates of true merit, which have been sent to
me volnutarily, without applying for them, or by boring
individuals to get them.
To satisfy the most scrupulous-of men, also as a
guaranteo to those that have not had the opportunity
of knowing thc Doctor by reputation or personally, I
havo adjoined to every bottle of the Anti-Rheumatic
Cordial, the certificate^ under oath, of one of tho most
celebrated analytical chemists in the United States,
that there aro no minerals nor poisons contained in this
medicine, although it is a very powerful medicine, and
has a very strong action on the human system, which it
necessarily must have, to ovoroome tho action of disease
of such malignant character.

Health, Strength and Happiness are obtained by cleansing the Blood of its impurities. Blood, we
nre told, on the highest authority, is the " Life," or at
least the medium of life to the body; and it is, we know,
the great feeder of every part of the frame. Thus the
blood in the great channel of disease; consequently, a
good or bad state of the system, or constitution, is no
more made the composition of tbe blood. We have
made the composition of the blood our constant study,
nnd are satisfied that two thirds of all the diseases are
caused by its impurities.
Believing the above facts, we made ourselvesacquaint-
ed with thb blood chemically with a view to a reliable medical agent, that would correct all the impurities
of the blood, and at the same time effectually cure all
diseases nrrising therefrom. We have succeeded beyond
our most sanguine expectations, as thousands can testily who have tried the virtues of the preparation known

AVitii all its eddies, its canyons, its falls and its impetuosity wc really think the much dreaded and abused
Fraser was framed by nature to be after all the groat
artery of communication through thc interior of British
Columbia.   AVe do  not wish to deprecate the actions
of Government in turning their attention so  much to
tho construction of roads, but wo cannot help innigin
ing that hnd the same amount of industry and money
been expended on the  navigation  of the Fraser, we
should have had goods this coming season much cheaper
at Cariboo and the upper country generally.    Our construction of ronds so far has  only been  to  facilitate
transit between two termini.   No agricultural country
has been opened up, except perhaps, to a slight extent,
the valley ofthe Shimilkomeen.   Thousands of pounds
have been expended on the trails along the   rocks nnd
precipitous bluff's of tho Fraser;  and thc wngon  road
on thc Douglas route seems, in  a monetary point of
view, to possess all the absorbing capacity ofa sponge;
yet with all tbis outlay, there is not space nlong either
route sufficient to afford a  nucleus for even the smallest farming community.    Including the  work  of the
Royal Engineers wo  are convinced that a  sum little
short of £40,000 has been expended on these means of
communication  since the commencement of lust year.
Now we would not grumble at twice this outlay were
there any prospect of a permanent advantage to be derived from the expenditure.    But this is not the case.
Tho mining between   Yale and Cayoosh, or in fact on
any portion of the Fr tser, is ot a very temporary nature.
A few years will suffice to work out most of the ground
provided we have anything like a population ;  for this
line of communication tothe Cnrriboo thc cost would be
almost incredible ; the vast amounts of money therefore
that have been and arc being expended on  this portion
ofthe country, will be only so much ofthe colonial exchequer misapplied.    The Douglas route has very little
advantage of the Vale one ; for what between a barren
country and the trcqucnt portages, mule-packing will
always be an expensive  operation.    In fact until  wc
have river navigation in the upper country and to thc
upper country, we despair of having  cheap provisions
for thc miner.    We know there are enormous difliulties
in Mil* way of navigating the Fraser; but we are also1
aware that those difficulties have been  very greatly
exaggerated.    From wliat wc can learn  from practical
men, wc believe that the much  dreaded  cannons  will
hefore long cense to  become insuperable barriers  to
steamboat navigation.     In many parts  of the upper
Fraser, with by no means a heavy expense in removing
obstacles, steamers could ply for considerable distances.

British Columbia Convention.—Friday last was a
day long to be remembered by the citizens of New
Westminster—a day that will, undoubtedly be  note,
down in the future almanac of British Columbia  us  a
most important epoch   in  its  history.    Early  in tbe
morning, or indeed the day previous, a few of the mos
patriotic ofthe  townsfolk wcre actively engaged  in
making preparations for the opening of the lirst session '
of this august body by erecting a triumphal arch over
the entrance to the Pioneer theatre and decorating it
with mottoes, evergreens and flags.    Toward  noon a
royal salute of twenty-one fire-crackers  announced  to
the inhabitants that the time drew nigh for the congregated wisdom of British Columbia, consisting of the five
"right men, respectable and well  qualified" representing the interests of New Westminster, and three others
from Dope aud Douglas duly elected by "white" votes,
according to tbe statute  mnde  and   provided  by  the
New Westminster  delegation, to assemble themselves
together.     This   thoy accordingly did  in  the above
mentioned theatre, which has thus been  rendered immortal, and will be handed  down to  posterity  as the
the Fanueil Hall of British Columbia. A vast concourse
of people witnessed   tbe  opening  ceremonies, which
consisted in the election of Mr. Homer of New Westminster to fill the, very arduous, responsible, and nt the
same time honorable position of President.   The pro
tern Secretary of the Convention having  more onerous
duties to fulfil in the editorial  chair  of tbe "people's
paper" could not continue his services in that capacity,
in consequence of which Mr. Hall was  elected as his
successor.    Two committees were then   appointed, one
to draw up rules of order for their future  government,
and the other to  decide on a  contested  election,  and
thus the labors of tho first sitting were  brought to  a
close by nn adjournment to 0 i>. m
As soon as the shades of evening made their appearance curiosity was on tiptoe to hear the great speeches
that wcre to be delivered by Britisli Columbia's embryo
statesmen, and the citizens nlniost en masse wended
their way to the "House." The lirst business transacted was the reading of three or four remarkably laconic
"rules of order" innd the elimination of a gentleman
from Douglas who hnd the audacity to make his appearance with credentials almost if not quite ns good as
those of thc sitting members, but not being of the right
"stripe" and elected by Britisli subjects,—rather a sore
point,   however,   he  was      '    ■•"„,->,;.,„cn.

raged after making a few remarks and receiving the applause
gable for any of the river steamers.    Yet those cngag
in the business are afraid to venture their capital in the
speculation of putting a steamer on this portiou of the
river; nor will there be  an attempt mado until  such
time as the Government shows  itself in earnest with
regard to  removing,  to a great extent   existing impediments.    Up  to  the  present time with thc exception of an attempt on the Harrison to coustruct a dam
at the rapids, river navigation has been completely lost
sight of by the Government.    Wo hope however, before
any portion of the large sums that are put down on the
cstimetes for opening up road communication in  the
upper country during  the present year, be  expended,
that steps will bo taken to see if some  improvements
cannot bc effected that will tend to increase the navigable capacity of the  Fraser, and thus  reduce the
cost of transit to sueh a figure that tho miner can have
his provision at Cnrriboo at a cost somewhat lower
than 150 per cent, above New Westminster rates.   Did
British  Columbia present road-making facilities equal
to thc most gently undulating of Australian plains, instead of the rugged nnd precipitous Cascades, it would
still be our  policy to encourage as much  as possible
the navigation of thc Fraser.   While cheap communication continues to be the vital necessity of the country, river transit will supersede oven the most economical of railways.   The noise of tho waters rushing through
the canyon has made us deaf to this self evident truth.
We have allowed our minds to be tinged with the excited imagination of the gold minors  of '58, who carried away with them tales of horror of whirlpools and
eddies Unit put to shame the most dismal legend of the
"Loud Lofoden."     Thc  upper   Columbia   River was
deemed until lately impracticable for the passage of
steamers—now it is threaded with as much  facility as
the placid lake.    It was only until within the  last few
months that navigation between Hope and Yale was
looked upon by every steamboat captain with ns much
horror ns thc passage of the Styx—now it is as safely
traversed as  any portion  of the Frascr.   Wc would
therefore suggest to  the Government, before any more
expensive road contracts are given out, that some practical steamboat captain, or other experienced person, be
sent up the Fraser as far as Alexander with a view to
making out a proper report as to the  river's navigable
capacity.     Such a plan would  entail but a comparatively trifling expense, and independent of the knowledge gleaned from the report would, we feel  assured

of the audience he accordingly did.    Then came the
brlliant ovations, Mr. Chisholm, of Fort Hope lending
thc van by giving over the "thrice-told tale" of British
Columbia grievances, and closed by defining the ditties,
business and objects ofthe Convention to be simply to
draw up a petition to the Queen, piaying her to  grant
a resident  Governor and representative  institutions.
Mr. Robertson, of Douglas, and Mr. Thompson, of Hope
briefly expressed their views on a few points of colonial
policy.   Those speakers appeared to be firmly impressed
with the idea that "brevity is the  soul of wit," and
governed themselves accordingly.    Mr. Clarkson  then
took the floor; the audience however at this stage  of
the meeting, was growing "small by degrees and beautifully less."    Those who still remained,  and were  in
close proximity to the hon. gentleman, and who were
fortunate enough to catch a few  of his  innudiblc re'
marks, wero struck with the singular coincidence between his speech and that of the gentleman  who  first
spoke.   The senior member for New Westminster, Mr.
Scott, next delivered one of his characteristic speeches,
amid the chcer3 of an inebriated citizen, the  rattle  of
billiard balls  in the bar-room,  nnd  the gingling of
glasses on the counter, after which the first resolution

(From Our Own Corro-pnndent.)
It is a painful duty to cronicle the brutal murder of
t Price, a highly respectable store keeper of Cayoosh,
and a gentleman well known in the mercantile circles
of New Westminster and Victoria. Thc unfortunate man wns found on tho morning of the 1st
inst bv » neighbor merchant and a person who
wished to make some purchases, lying by the side
of his bed with his bend half severed from his body
and ft number of-nabs iu the abdomen, which, from
Tub IIai.f-Ckxt Tax.—A petition has heon forwarded
to the Governor by the people of Yale, complaining of
the authorities at Hope collecting taxes on boats laden
with goods destined to pass Yale on their way up river,
and praying for a repeal of the tax so far as regards
the traffic by boats.
A Supposed Mubder.—The body ofa man identified
as that of Mr. Eplrraini White was recently found a little
distance below Fort Hope. He disappeared from that
place not long since, after having dissolved partnership
with a person named Coo, and was supposed to have
come down the river. There hns been no very definite
information received respecting the affair, but from all
that can bc gathered, it is evident that deceased caino
to his death by unfair moans, and suspicion rests very
strongly upon parties whose names it will not at present do to mention.
The Otter.—This steamer arrived late on Friday
evening with a week's later news, a full cargo of freight,
and some 00 passengers from Victoria. She was looked
for on Wednesday evoning, then confidently expected
on Thursday evening, but it was not until Friday that
she made her appearance, not a few complaining of her
great irregularity, which is certainly a source of considerable annoyance to business" men as well as travellers. In steaming up thc river a floating log got on-
tangled in her screw, the force of whith elevated one
end through her deck. Fortunately no one was close
at hand or the consequences might have been serious.
It was extricated with but little trouble, the vessel
having sustained no damage.
Anniversary Bam., Washingtont's Birthday.—Extensive preparations are being made by the different
committees in connection with the ball to be given on
Friday evoning next, in Mr. Hick's spacious new Hall. It
is fully expected to prove a great success, and certainly
if activity nnd attention on the part of those concerned
in its management will secure it, it cannot bc otherwise,
Postponrd.—We arc compelled to leave over until
our next, a quantity of British Columbian correspondence.
Appointed.—K. G. Alston, Esq., has I,ecu appointed
Registrar  of Deeds.

Real Estate.—Several lots on thc property of Governor Douglas, adjoining the Government Buildings,
avc been let on leases of 21 years, at $0 per in,.nth
each. The lots arc 40 by 120. The lot at the corner
of Fort and Government street, having 25 feet frontage
on the latter, has we hear recently been sold for the
sum of $3000.
The Dalles Route.—The Portland " Times" sny
that Col. Baker, who was reported to have arrived at
Cayoosh with a band of 120 horses on the 18th of January, left the Dalles about the last of November.
The Supreme Court.—A case of some interest to the
mercantile community wns decided yesterday. Messrs
Janion k Green sued the Bark Alma for damages sustained by thc breakage of a cask of rum, part of the
cargo ofthe ship on hor voyage from London to Vancouver Island. The Attorney General argued for the
plaintiffs that the owners ofthe ship wcre liable under
the Common Carriers Act, for the damage of any goods
received by them in good condition, with the usual exceptions on'the hills of lading. Mr. McCreight appeared
for the defendant. Judge Cameron gave a verdict for
the defendant, as the evidence of Capt. Reid and others,
prowl that the cask was properly stowed, and thnt no
negligence could bc attributed to the master of the

A difficulty had occurred between General Scott and
Senator Toombs. At a dinner party on the 10th, Toombs
expressed a wish that the people of Charleston would
sink the Star of the iVest. Scott asked if it was possible
that as au American bc desired such an event. Toombs
replied in the affirmative, and added : those who sent
her should be sent with her. A challenge had passed
between tlicm.
The telegraphic dispatch to the Sacramento Union
gives another account nbout the difficulty between
Scott and Toombs. It says: "General Scott arose to
resent the insult, when Gwin interfered and parted
them. A challenge passed. The matter is in the
bunds of seconds."
Lieut. Talbot had arrived at, Washington, with dispatches from Major Anderson, and reported the condition of Fort. Sumpter less favorable than was thought

[All Ihe Year Round.
Angeliih*e Tivcbt is the heroine of an old and prolix chroniole, from which is compiled the following true
Her father, Jean  Augusta  Curlier, having some capital, entered into partnership with a rich old bookseller
and jeweller of Met?., whose only child he subsequently
married.    Thc  old man died  soon alter the marriage,
bequeathing his whole property to his daughter nnd son-
in-law, whose careful habits daily  added   to  its  bulk.
Madame Carlier died eight years after marriage, leaving
a daughter of seven (this Angelique)  and   a  two-year
old son. named Augnste.    Carlier did not marry again,
but lived for bis children.    He   was    a man  ol" some
learning, and when llie shop was closed in the evening
employed himself in teaching  bis  boy  and girl,  who
both bad quick abilities,    Madame de Re,nonet, an aunt
of the deceased Madame Carlier, had been  one of the
loveliest women of her time, and although belonging to
the bourgeoisie,  bad  captivated  the fancy of a youth
of   rank,    who   in  spile   of   the   opposition   of his
friends, made her his wife, and obtained a post at court
where madame's beauty, wit, and talents  for intrigue,
forced her into favour.    In those days,  when  Anne of
Austria, in the pomp of her regency, wns outraging decorum, the standard of public  opinion   in   France demanded no high principle of conduct.    Madame  lived
therefore, a brilliant and heedless life  until the sudden
death of her husband left  her with  n pension far too
small to supply the luxuries to which   she was accustomed.    Yet she made no visible change except to become more reckless in her mode of life till after a  few
more years, when the death or estrangement of some of
her patrons, and a severe illness, which seemed all at
once to anticipate the work of age. caused her to think
of some certainly of home for ber declining years.   Her
relations in Metz. had of course, been neglected ; butas
she knew her brother and niece to be dead, and her
nephew to be wealthy, she determined  to proceed to
Metz and make herself, if possible, a fixture there.   At
Metz she was so  amiable  to  her nephew-ir-law, so
motherly wilh lhe children, and seemed to be so happy
in thtir company, that Carlier,  whose  comforts were
the greater for her care of his household, offered her a
home with them.    She accepted this offer with tears of
gratitude, bat as the quiet economy  of the household
by no means s iiled her taste,  she soon  endeavored to
introduce a radical change in all mailers of expenditure.
In this attempt, however, she did uot suceed; forCnr-
iier though kind and gentle, was in money matters, hisl
own ma-ter.    Yet he was blind to the character of the
woman whom he gave to his children as  guide and!
companion: a woman selfish, rapacious, utterly unprincipled, and heartless.    Over  the young mind  of her
nitce she gained a complete ascendency.    Auguste was
armed against her with simplicity of character, and him
she hated, though she lavished upon him the  tenderes'.
endearments.    After three years, finding her health restored, she resolved on a return to Paris.    Imposing,
therefore, upon Carlier a specious tale that it  was necessary for her to go to the capital to save her pension,
she quitted Metz. but kept her hold  upon thc mind of
Angelique.     She induced   him   to  give  bis   daughter
tbe advantage of Paris  training; and  she   selected a
tonvent of which the  nuns were  celebrated for proficiency in teaching.    Thither Angelique was  sent, and
she spent all her holidays with her aunt.    Carlier went
often to Paris after his daughter's removal thither, and
was grateful for the attention bis  mint  paid the  girl.
On  one occasion he allowed the acute lady to discover
that his will was made, and that he had left his property, worth more than a million  of livers, equally  divided between son and daughter, with  madame for their
sole guardian.    He dined with his  aunt  that  evening
and half an hour afterwards  left in thc dilligence for
Metz.    In three days he was dead.
He had never been a strong man, the time was midwinter, the weather terribly severe. His death was
ascribed to cold and fatigue, acting on an enfeebled constitution.
Madame de Remonet would seem to have had a presentiment of the impending catastrophe, for she had
everything ready for a journey when the news arrived,
and she set off for Metz, with Angelique without nn
hour's delay. Ou their arrival they found Carlier
buried, and the passionate grief of Madame de Remonet attracted universal sympathy.
Angelique was now nearly sixteen, exquisitely beautiful, with hair marvellously long and abundant, so that
when let loose, it covered  her almost to her feet; Its
color was a dark brown with gleams of light on  it,  ns
if sprinkled with gold dust.   So lovely a beauty Madame de Remonet was impatient to produce to the world.
Shetiurried the sale of Cnrlier's effects as much as possible, selecting what she thought fit to retain, and in
five months after her nephew's death, returned to Paris,
with   her  two young wards.    The  best rooms of a
Handsome hotel wcre at once furnished  with all  the
cumbrous luxury ofthe period, a complete staff of domestics was engaged, and a career of dissipation began.
Wooers thronged about the young heiress ; and among
the rest came a youug man named Henri St. Chaubert,
whose father, the principal notary in Metz,  had  been
earner's close friend.    Henri was clever and energetic
and* already distinguished in the law.    His pretensions
were soon set at rest by Madame de  Remonet, who,
acting upon Angelique's vanity and ambition, persuaded
her to dismiss (probably) the only lover she ever bad, j
who cared for herself alone.   Among the crowd were
two, especially distinguished: the one by Madame dc|
Remonet: the other by her niece. The first was Monsieur Tiquet, President of the Parliament of Pans,
whose relations with madame had formerly been very
intimate. He was old, ugly, and disagreeable. He had
bv extravagance impaired a large fortune, but his position upheld him. The aunt favored his pretensions,
for the president had bound himself to pay her a large
sum on the day when he should marry Angelique. The
girl herself inclined to a young Chevalier de Mon-
george who was an officer In thc King's Guards : handsome, witty, accomplished, and really in love, according
to the fashion of the age and country. Mongeorge a
family required high birth in his bride, and endeavored
to detach him from his mistress. They procured from
the king his appointment to a colonelcy in a regiment
ordered°to a remote part ofthe kingdom, and. while he
was gone Monsieur Tiquet made good use of his absence. Madame de Remonet assisted efficiently. Angelique was assailed on the one side by fetes and costly
gifts : and on thc other side by fabulous accounts ofthe
wealth and rank which should be hers ou becoming
Madame Tiquet, and ot the envy she would excite in the
hearts of all the girls in Paris. Particular mention is
made of one present which completely subdued the
little power of resistance Angelique had left. It was a
bouquet of flowers imitated from nature, the leaves being
of gold and emeralds, the flowers of turquoises, rubies,
sapphires, opals, and garnets, sprinkled with dewdrops
of small diamonds. She could not withstand so gallant
aud princely an adorer, and in a few weeks became
Madame Tiquet.
Passionately adoring his young wife the president was

There was now no doubt of Angcliques intcnti;--;. but
thc old president implored Servin, with tears, nol to I (-
tray her to justice. The man solemnly promised, on
condition that his master neither ate nor drank anything
but what he himself prepared and brought. It was resolved between them to conceal their knowledge of the
attempt as much as possible, and to allow Angelique
to believe that the broth had beer, taken by ber husband.!
who would feign illness. Ilc therefore retired to I ed
nnd was scarcely there when Angelique entered.
"In   bed!''  she  exclaimed; '"I   hope you  are   not
He made  no answer,   but Servin. in  a whisper, told
jealous of her lightest look. As Angelique had been i her that his master hnd suddenly become very ill, and
prepared for her married life, by an intimation from her | that perfect quiet would be necessary for him. During
aunt that marriage by  no means excluded lovers,   she
insisted on dressing like a princess, nnd on entertaining
a throng of flatterers. Her husband wished for do-
mesiicitv, and had become, as spendthrifts sometimes
do become, miserly, now that he bad again a fortune.
Constant and violent contention was the consequence,
and, to make matters worse, Mongeorge, whose friends
had been made happy by Angelique's marriage, was recalled to Paris, and" became her satellite. Monsieur
Tiquet at last refused to supply his wife with money
beyond a very small allowance. She applied then to
her aunt, who by supplying her with funds, still further established'cmpirc over her, while she repeatedly
urged on her how fortunate it would be were Auguste
to die; for Monsieur Cnrlier's will bad decreed ihat if
either of his heirs died without issue, the fortune of the
ceased should go to the survivor. If both died childless,
all was to bc applied to the use of various charities, except a small sum left to Madame Remonet. Angelique
ran into debt, her husband refused positively to advance or increase her allowance. Her aunt, professing
to be unable to supply further demands, advised an application to Mongeorge, upon which Angelique was
.ompelled to acknowledge that she was already bis
debtor for large sums, which he had heavily involved
himself to procure for her. "If Auguste would only
die I" was the next terrible suggestion. He is puny and
frail, docs not enjoy life, and cannot live to maturity.
Yet be keeps you, who so much uecd his money, from
a vast deal of enjoyment I"
No more wa3 said on that occasion, but nt subsequent
interviews the subject was revived. Auguste was a boy
of thirteen, delegate and quiet, often and seriously ailing, much neglected by his aunt and sister, but loved
and seduouslv cared for, by an old abbe, who wns his
tutor. His health grew worse aud worse. Violent
sickness, internal crumps, aud racking pains, soon
brought him to the brink of the grave. In about three
months from the time of the first serious attack, he
died. Xo one suspected foul play. The boy^iad been
almost unknown to any one except the servants and his
tutor. His fortune went to Angelique; ard she sometime afterwards, presented her aunt with two thousand
livres and a magnificent Cashmere shaw i.
Monsieur Tiquet somewhat mollified by his wife's increase of fortune, conceded to her many of her demands.
nnd relaxed somewhat of his vigilance. Gradually,
Angelique sank so low in her morality that at last Monsieur Tiquet gave his porter, who was a Gascon named
C.ittelain, strict orders not not to permit the egress of
mistress, unless in company with himself or on showing a written order from him. Angelique, adding this
man to her list of lovers, still was free to attend revels
and masquerades, until her husband, discovering her
connivance, dismissed bim and himself kept the keys.
Of course Madame de Remonet was again taken into
council by her pupil, and. in accordance with her advice
Angelique ceased opposition to her husband, and endeavored to regain his confidence. As if to crown his
happiness, a little girl was now born, and the consequent seclusion ofthe young mother gave the president
reason to hope that for tbe future all was well. But
with Angelique's returning health returned her taste for
pleasure. She was very affectionate in her manner to
her husband, but she now and then insisted on attend
ing places of amusement at which he knew she must
meet Mongeorge. Cnttelain, although dismissed trom
the president's service wa3 still in that ofthe lady, who
gave him money, with which he set up a sort of cabaret
in a remote part of the town. To that house, as was
afterwards discovered, Madame Tiquet frequently went
in disguise to meet Mongeorge and others. About the
same time a famous female fortune-teller wa3 turning
the heads of Paris, and drew—as thc spirit-conjuror
now draws—crowds of all ranks to her seances. One
day Angelique. entered the drawing room of an acquaintance, where there was assembled a large party of
both sexes, and displayed so much animation that thc
hostess asked if anything particularly pleasant had oc-
cured. Her answer was afterwards brought in evidence against her.
"Yes," said she, "I have been tothe fortune-teller,
nnd she has solemnly assured me that I shall be perfectly happy, and freed from the great plague of my life.
Of course 1 knew that must be Monsieur Tiquet; sol
besought her to say if I should be soon a widow, as only
then could I be perfectly happy; but she would do no
more than repeat what she bad said. However, the
thought that he may soon die is something to live for."
At thi3 time .Monsieur Tiquet was recovering from an
attack of Asthma, which had for many weeks confined
him to his room, where he was attended by a valet,
named Servin, as old as himself, who had lived with
bim thirty years,, and who, looking with disfavour on
his young mistress, understood more of her ways than
she supposed. A certain regimen had been prescribed
for the invalid, of which a strong broth, to be taken at
noon, formed a portion. Suddenly Angelique, once
more becoming a domestic wife, insisted on preparing
this broth herself. Servin had his own views on the
subject, and resolved to oppose stratagem by stratagem.
On the first day of Angelique's acting as cook, the valet
took a pet dog of the President's, a pretty white spaniel,
and shut it into bis own chamber. Taking care to bc
in thc way at the right moment, he took the broth from
her hands to cany to his master; but on his way to the
sick-room visited his own, nnd pouring nt least half'.he
contents of the bowl on a plate, set it before the dog, and
again shut him up. AVhcn be reached his masters room
he found Angelique there.
" Where have you delayed?" she asked.
"I spilt some ot the soup, madame, and could not appear before my master till 1 had changed my coat which
was splashed."
" Ah!'' The cry was from Angelique, and was caused
by Seivin, whose foot slipped on the waxed and slippery margin beyond the carpet, so that he fell and broke
the howl. Angelique was enraged, but her anger only
convinced the old man that tie was right in his suspicion. Yet to his astonishment the dog did not suffer,
but continued perfectly well,although he had eaten the
the whole portion allotted to him. The valet was therefore obliged to conclude that no poison bad been mixed
in the soup. Angelique continued to prepare it, nnd
Servin persevered in always taking out a portion tor
Hie dog before he gave it to his master. It was excellent, and both the dog and his master appeared the better for it. So things went on lor about three weeks,
and then Servin, on taking the bowl from his mistross
one day, fancied that he discovered a certain nervous
agitation in her manner, in bis bearing, too, she ordered
her footman to accompany her directly on a visit to
Madame de Remonet. Servin hastened to feed the dog,
having first made sure that his mistress was gone out.

asked lor a glass of can sucree. Angelique Hew to a
table, mixed the drink, and added to it something from

The glass was suddenly taken from her hand.    A hulf-

did not answer, but steadying herself against the balustrade ofthe staircase, looked at the valet with distended
eyes. "Madame sees that to preserve my master from
such accidents in future, it is necessary that I should
ask the physician what is here,'' continued Servin.

afford a temporary respite to the sufferer, whereas these
Pills annihilate the disorder.

It lias long been a most Important desideratum In '.he practlca
of medicine, to obtain a remedy similar to this, and accordingly
we find It resorted to almost universally in all those tormenting
diseases of the skin so trying to the patience, and Injurious to
tbe health.    It ls a tonic, aperient, aud disinfectant.    It acts
simultaneously upon tho btouacu, the cinctu.ATiON, and tho
bowkls, and thus three processes, which are ordinarily the result
of tur .f. different kinds of medicine, are carried on at lbe same
time through iho Instrumentality of this one remedial agent.
Its great merit Is, that It meets and neutralizes tlie active prln
cljjle or disease itself, ar-iA when that is gone, the symptoms no
cessarily disappear.  The rapidity with which the patient recov
era health and strength under this triple lnlliienco is surprising.
Lynn County, Oregon Ter., March 11, ISM.
Messrs. A. B. «_ I). Saniib, New York: Oentlemen,—In tbt
spring of 1 H.",3, while on our way from Indiana to this place, our
eldest boy was seized with a swelling b.i.I severe pains In tho
legs, which day by day grow worse, until his legs contracted,
and became so painful that he could not walk, mid wo had la
carry him about like an Infant. We reached Albany on the ,'ld
of October, completely worn out by fatigue. Ily this lime ho
was reduced to a perfect skeleton. Hero we were enabled to
consult a physician (Dr. Hill), who honestly confessed ho could
not euro bim, although be could j,lvc him medicine that would
relieve ihe pain, ln this exigency something must be done, or
death was Inevitable. Being recommended to try your 8arsa-
[inrllla, I procured a bottlo. After taking some, ho appeared
worse; but persevering with It, I obtained a second hottlo,
which seemed to grapple with the disease, and caused a marked
Improvement: the swelling and pain in thc logs wero red-toed,
bis nppetite li,,proved, and tils color began to return. Thus on-
conraged. I purchased a third bottle; while taking It, tbe swell-
Iiil's III his legs broke, and some pieces ol bono one-eighth of
an Inch lonu camo out, after which his legs straightened and
healed up. Ho ia now perfectly recovered, has no appearance
of Doing a cripple, and can perform moat kinds of common labor,
as all our neighbors can certify.   Yours, respectfully,

Tho delicate structure of tho eyelid renders It peculiarly sen
sltivj and liable to disease. When, from any cause, it becomes
affected, the inner membrane rapidly Inflames, and tho eyelid
evinces the slrongcst predisposition to attract to Itself humors
from all parts of the body. Hundreds of persona of scrofulous
habit are disfigured by rawness or redness of the eyelids, commonly called sore eyes, and tortured with apprehensions of lm-
paired vision, who, by using this BALSAM, may obtain almost
Imroeditte relict In all cases, the earllor this remedy is nppllsd
