IRON CASED SHIPS OF WAR.
From The London Times.
It is at least twenty years ag*> that the
suggestion of sheathing ships of war in iron
iii'fnor was first made, but the idea never received an}- practical expression till the Russian War, when floating batteries, thus protected, were employed by thc allies against
the works of tho .Russians at Kinburn. This
experiment, in the opinion of many officers of
good authority, should have been regarded as
decisive, for it was shown beyond all doubt
that the iron plating of the batteries could resist and repel the shot from the Russian guns.
Whether tbe vessels would have proved eternally or absolutely invulnerable may be another question, but as a matter ol fact it was
established by the best of proofs that ships
might be protected even against heavy artillery, and at tolerably close quarters, by covering their sides with iron. Now, what the
Emperor of the French has done is to turn
this discovery to the best advantage. lie
saw in what respect the floating batteries
were succesful, and jn what tbej* were defective. They were successful in the main
point of the theory,—that is to say, they resisted hostile shot, but tbey were so cumbrous, so univieldy, and so inconvenient in
many respects that the invention seemed
hardly applicable to the general purposes of
maritime war. Napoleon III., however, saw
further into the matter. The French authorities wcre set to work, and the result, after
two or three years of experimental efforts, is
the production ofthe vessel of which so much
has been said. The Gloi'*c is a floating battery mobilzoid- There is the whole truth of
the matter. The French architects, always
among the best in the world, have contrived
to eliminate one ly one the faults of the
original essay, unt.il in the end they completed a model combining the solidity of a
floating bntteiy with the form and speed of a
frigate- As soon as this was accomplished
the Emperor saw his way. Orders were
given for placing ten of the new vessels on the
stocks, and thc construction of linc-of-battle
ships on thc old models was discontinued
from that time forward- That is the whole
stoiy, and wc must needs admit that it is
greatly to the credit ot the authorities across
the Channel. We now know that the plates
of thc Gloire are in no degree superior to
those which have been manufactured in this
country, and wc have been apprised also that
thc experiments conducted in France gave
exactly thc same results as were derived trom
our own. The only difference was in tbe
conclusions, and here the French left us behind them. Tbej* saw, as well as wo did,
that under certain conditions a ship's armor
could bo perforated by cannon shot; but they
saw also that under conditions far more likely
to occur the shot would be repelled by the
armor, and they seized the advantage without
hesitation, although it was not shown to be
quite absolute. Tho result is that they have
got a vessel as swift as a smart frigate, and
yet as strong as an old floating battery, and
it follows, of course, that the Gloire can not
only do what thc batteries did at Kinburn,
but a great deal more besides. Nevertheless,
there is much that sho cannot do, and this is a
point which deserves careful attention. The
Gloire, after all, retains so much ot the battery character that she is not qualified lor
long cruises. She can bc moved with great
rapidity under steam, notwithstanding her
weight, but she is not rigged for sailing at all,
and consequently could only keep th« seas
while her coal lasted—about ten days or so.
It is doubtful, moreover, how a ship of this
kind would behave in bad weather, or how
far in any caso sho would be adapted for more
than home service- It has been plainly and
authentically stated in our colomns that if a
ninety-gun ship encountered an iron-clad
thirty-gun frigate, tho latter would blow tho
former "into lucifor matches," and therefore
it is clear thnt iron-sheathed vessels will form
the best ships-of-the-line. But it is also clear
that they would be unavailable for distant
voyages or colonial duty generally. Tho
ships that might infest the track of our
Australian clippers, or lie in wait for our East
Indiamcn in the China Seas, would not bc
Gloiros, or Normandics. Such ponderous
craft would be helpless in thoso latitudes or
on such service. Their sphere would bo in
the attack of shore defences or tho heavy
work of a pitched battle. They are mere
batteries still, though they can bo iimna-ii \ ered
Inore rapidly than we ever thought possible.
We observed, however, that the ultimate development
of this invention was still uncertain, Thc fact is thero
is a conflict of principle in the matter. Mr. Whi .worth
remarked that it was a race between guns and armor,
ftnd that as the greatest power, within cer;nin limits of
height, could undoubtedly be given to guns, armor
would be beaten. But tbis argument also, like that of
0|ir authorities, proceeds on the assumption that absolute superiority either iu the attack or the defence is to
be the object in view, whereas it is by no means impossible that a compromise may be the most advantageous conclusion of all, Suppose, for instance, that a
frigate was protected with steel plates so light as
scarcely to effect hor form or speed, and yet strong
enough to repel nil shell and a fair propoction of shot
a' certain ranges? Might not thin bo a very useful as
well as economical form of vessel ? At present, now
that our Admiralty has taken tho matter up, wo aro
8°'ng upon the principle of unlimited strength, size,
ind expenditure, and the principle, in its way, is certainly not a bad one,   The ship just laid down at
Chatham will probably be as superior to the Gloire in
power as the Gloire is to an old wooden frigate, and
our four advanced vessels will also, as far as we can
learn, bc of enormous proportions. Of course, thc new
model can bc magnified like any other, nnd we shall
have our Howes and Royal Alberts probably in iron, exactly as we had in wood. But, although the cost of
these fabrics would be prodigious, a check would be
forthcoming in theway of numbers. Already, although
our NaVy is as strong as in the days of Nelson, it has
sunk to a far smaller number of vessels. A modern
ship-of-tbe-line is so much more costly ns well as more
powerful than an old one that a dozen such vessels iu
the present day form an equivalent to thirty or torty in
days gone by, and the same thing will happen, no
doubt, with ships ofthe new pattern. If it docs really
come to pass that thc mi I lion of money which we have
recently spent upon the launches ofa single year will
only pay for two vessels, we must be content with
these two ; and indeed, we may well be so, for what
wc cannot afford it is certain that no other nation can.
Perhaps ten steamers may by and by constitute, as far
as line-of-battlc ships are concerned, the whole British
fleet; but, however this may be, whether the new principle is to bc pushed to the utmost, or whether in the
end it will be combined by a partial application with
principles of older date, wc can have nothing to fear so
long as our resources are judiciously administered. If
the sovereignty ofthe sens i_ to be determined by money
machinery, nnd manufactures, we shall stand ns well
for the prize as we did even when it depended upon
stout seamanship and hereditary skill.

Messrs. A. B. & D. Sands, New Tork: Gentlemen,—In the
spring of IS.',-, while on our way from Indiana to tills place, onr
eldest hoy was seized with a swelling and severe pains In the
legs, which day by day grew worse, unlil his legs contracted,
and became so painfu, that ho could not walk, and wo had ts
carry him about like an Infant We readied Albany on the 3d
of Octoher. completely worn out hy fatigue. By this time ho
was reduced to a perfect skeleton. Here we were enabled to
consult a physician (Dr. Hill), who honestly confessed lie could
not cure I, tm, although he could give him medicine that would
relieve tho pain. In this exigency something must be done, or
death was Inevitable. Being recommended to try your Sarsaparllla, I procured a bottlo. After taking some, ho appeared
worse; but persevering with It, I obtained a second bottle,
which seemed to grapple with the disease, and caused a marker*
Improvement: the swelling and pain in the legs were reduced,
his appetite improved, and his color began to return. Thus encouraged, I purchased a third bottle; while taking it, the swell-
lues In his legs broke, and some pieces of bone one-eighth of
an" Inch Ion* came out, after whioh his legs straightened and
healed up. Hi) Is now perfectly recovered, has no appearance
of being a cripple, aud can perform most kinds of common labor,
as all uur neighboia can cerUfy.   Youra, respectfully,

THE BLESSING OF HEALTH
by
HOLLOWAY'S     PILLS.
Why are Diseases so Fatal in Tropical Climates T
Merely because we prescribe for their effect, instead
of their cause, and try to relieve symptoms instead of
Hiking nt their root. The action of these Pills is precisely the reverse. They expel from the secretive organs and the circulation the morbid matter which produces inflammation, pain, fever, debility, ond physical
decay ; and the basis of disease being removed, its
manifestations vanish. While ordinary remedies only
afford a temporary respite to the sufferer, whereas these
Pills annihilate the disorder.
Ill Health in Hot Countries.
Frequently arises from nervouB disorders affecting
thc action of the heart and deranging the whole animal economy ; these fine Pills will restore tbe nervous
systom however deranged, and bring back health and
spirits when all other medicine has failed,.
Bilious and Liver Complaints.
Frequently lead to the worst phases of human suffering, yet how many in the East and West Indies, and
most of our Foreign Possessions, are thus afflicted, unknowing the means of cure placed within their grasp ;
such should take a few boxes of these Pills according
to the directions given in tbe books, and their ailments
will quickly leave them.
Dropsical Swellings and Turn of Life.
This is a most disastrous period in woman's history,
it destroys thousands, the whole of the gross humors
collect together, and like a tide sweep away health and
life itself, if not timely and powerfully checked. The
most certain remedy for all these dangirous symptoms
is Holloway's Pills. Armed with this great antidote,
the fiery ordeal is passed through, and the sufferer is
once more restored to the possession of unimpaired
health. Theso Pills are equally efficacious in all female complaints, and obstructions at the dawn of
womanhood.
Stomach and Liver Complaints.
These are complaints of the million, particularly of
those in warm latitudes ; few escape them; nnd, if
neglected, they lead to innumerable dangerous maladies
But why neglect them when Holloway's Pills will eradicate them as certainly as water extinguishes fire?
They relieve the bowels, purify tbe fluids, and invigorate the system and tbe constitution at the same time.
They are admitted by virtue of special decrees into the
dominions of despotism, and thus have become a great
household remedy.
Dysentery and Howel Complaints.
These famous Pills should be taken once or twice a
week by all classes in this part of the world, by which
means, none need fear the attacks of these direful
scourges.
A Word to Females.
The local debility and irregularities which are the
special annoyance of the weaker sex, and which, when
neglected, always shortens life, nre relieved for the
time being and prevented for the time to come, by a
course of tbis mild but thorough alterative.
Holloway's Fills are the best remedy known in the world
for the following diseases :-
Erysipelas Stone and Gravel
Female  Irreg-   Liver Complaints
ularitics Lumbago
Fevors of all     Piles
kinds Retention of Urine
Kits Scrofula, or King's

NEW WESTMINSTER, SATURDAY, JANUARY 5.
The past week sufficiently proves what can be done
by a little energy when properly directed. Not more
than eight days ago. we were still in our political doze,
with scarcely a prospect of being woke into activity at
least until the warm weather and the mosquitoes len'
us their kind and efficient assistance. Now we are
plunged into an electioneering contest compared with
which a Municipal election is a very tame affair indeed.
We are glad to see so general au interest taken in the
establishing of a convention, even though it may bring
with it all the jarring of political discord. The people
of New Westminster are right in looking at the contest
which is to take place on Wednesday next in as impor-
a light as if the successful candidates were to take their
seats in a regular Legislature of the Colony. For on
the men so elected will devolve the responsibility of
obtaining represennative government and good laws for
the colony. Every jealousy, therefore, or pettiness
should be laid aside, and the simple question of who
are ihe most capable men to fill the rather difficult and
onerous positions of delegates to the first general representative body in British Columbia, should alone fill
the minds of the inhabitants. We hope that no improper means will be exerted for individual ends, and
that the clerical influence which was evidently struggling to gain a mastery at the political meeting the
of refraining from making political enemies.
In the selection of delegates the inhabitants cannot be too careful, or scrutinize too narrowly
the mental calibre of the'candidates. We do not want
men who have shown' sin>*e their residence in New
Westminster a disposition only to frustrate and oppose
every good measure which they bad not the capacity to
create. Nor do we want individuals who wish to circumscribe the people's choice, and obtain thereby a
better chance of election, by attempting to exclude any
member of the Municipal council. The election should
be on the hronde.-t possible basis. Let us pit the poorest man in the community into the convention, and pa;
for bis services, if he really possesses better qualifications than his fellows. Let us search for ability, and
wherever it is to be found let it be seized upon ; for the
necessity of having men capable of originating schemes
for the good government of the colony is one which
at once forces itself upon us. Let us. therefore, show
an array of practical tuient that will at once set at
rest any doubts on the mind of our own or the Home
Government, of our fitness to govern ourselves.
But above all let us show that even in an informal election, originated by the people themselves, the glorious privilece of manhood suffrage, the .videst and
most unlimited exercise ofthe power of voting, is not
misplaced when put into the hands of every inhabitant of British Columbia, irrespective of property
qualification,
tselfwas one of the most absurd propositions under
our present circumstances, ever brought before a public

Mr. Ramage was called t., the Chair and Mr. V. Hall
was appointed Secretary.
Mr. Scott came forward aud made some very sensible remarks, showing the necessity of such a body as a
convention, and hoped the inhabitants would be unanimous on the subject.
Mr. Hodgkinson went minutely into the land and
mining questions, showing in the former the difficulties
th.it met the newly-arrived immigrant at almost every
step in his desire to obtain a piece of land for cultivation—through the partiality or incompetency of Government  officials.     He  also  entered  at   considerable
length iuto the question ot the development j of following out parliamentary practice. Tne confusion
of the mineral resources of the colony stat- | increased until the chairman put thc question whether

Now was the proper time to get these questions considered by the inhabitants of the colony. But little
trade would be existing in t'ne upper country till March
or April : and tliere would be no difficulty before that
time in getting men from the upper country : but let

namely :—
'•That iu the opinion of this meeting the present
state of the colony is one which causes the utmost anxiety as regards its future welfare. The total absence
of all information concerning the Government's future
policy, tbe present unsatisfactory state of the Land
question, the absence of those necessary inducements
to immigration on the part ofthe Government which
the mineral, agricultural and ether numerous resources
ofthe colony should eminently promote, all tend towards one great object—the necessity  of  representation
ofthe colony.    Be it therefore resolved, that in the ab- j tion shall assemble,

Mr. Holbrook had great pleasure in seconding the rc-

inhabitants of New Westminster to dictate to the oilier

Heavy Rains.—The last few days' heavy rains have
caused some slight damage to the new road from the
town to the Camp. We arc pleased, however, to find
that Captain Grant has already taken steps to repair
it. Some slight idea may be formed of tho

DR. ROSENBAUM'S STOMACH BITTERS!
For the cure  of Dysiepsia, Indigestion, Constipation
Loss of Appetite ..r nny Bilious Complaints
arising from a morbid action  of tbe
Stomach or BoWels.
All of these diseases you will soon bc relic Ved of, by-
use of these Bitters, as per directions on the Bottles.
This great anti-dyspeptic is tbe result of profound and
elaborate study of one of the most celebrated physicians
ofthe present century, in the accomplishment of which
he has spent both time and money. We do not hesitate
to affirm that where Dr. Rosenbaum's Stomach Bitters
arc used, a case of Fever and Ague cannot occur. It
has been analyzed by the most scientific chemists in
the Medical Faculty, and is noir prescribed by nine-
tenths of the Physicians of the land. Tfy them—test
them—on your constitution, and go yolir Way rejoicing.
Arc you dyspeptic ?—take these Stomach Bitters.
Are you bilious ?—try one of these bottles and be relieved at once.
Are you annoyed by indigestion or constipation ?—
remove the cause hy a free use of the Bitter's.
Have you fever and ague 7—cure and prevent this
destroying disease by the free use of these Bitters.
Thc superiority of these Bitters has induced many to
put up a spurious article. To prevent deception in
future, each cork will be branded, "N.B.Jacobs &Co."
And the labels will bear our own signature, without
which, none are genuine.
Caution.— Consumers of Rosenbaum's Bitters are
cautioned against the many counterfeits now afloat ip
thc market, and especially against a cheap and worthless article called Rosenschfs Bitters, put up in this
by Messrs. Turner Bro.'s, with the avowed intention of
preying on the well-earned reputation of Rosenbaum's
Bitters, as n remedial agent in all cases of Dyspepsia
and similar diseases. The genuine Rosenbaum has our
name branded on each cork, and our signature on each
label.

Cbckltt to lioasES is Fbaxcs.—On the 8tb inst.
Professor Spooner delivered an address to the Royal
Veterinary College, from which the following is an ti-
iraet:—• The facts are these :—At Alfort, which I visited, and still more at Lyons, tbe pupils are instructed
in surgery by cutting up living horses. Oh ! then is
surgery fiendbood ! Two days >n the week, at nine
o'clock in the morning, the doomed horse is cast, and
then he is subject to all sorts of surgical operations,
such as firing, neurotomy, cutting away pieces of the
eartilage of the foot, operating as if for stone in the
bladder, extirpating tbe parotid and other glands, or
the eyes, or any organs that forceps can pull, or that
knives or saws can reach. Steel, aim'fingers guided
bv stony hearts, invade the poor animal at all points:
these operations on tbe same horse last from nine
o'clock in the morning until four in the afternoon, unless, indeed, he becomes unfit for the diabolicistn by
dying in the meantime.'
Thb Losgest Vessel Is the Would.—We have
just received an official report of the performance of a
steam vessel, or articulated train of barges, belonging
to the Oriental Inland Steam Company, and intended to
navigate the shallow rivers of the East, which possesses
peculiar scientific interest from the fact of this composite vessel being the longest ever yet constructed, being
nearly half as long again as the Great Eastern. It appeals'that on trial this great vessel or train was found
te be easily manageable, and attained a satisfactory rate
of speed; "and its success solves the important question
of how to carry a very largo cargo on a very small
draught of water, nnd against a rapid stream. The
train con. ists of a steamer and five barges, of the collective length of 900 feet. But these barges, instead of
being towed asunder like common barges, nre joined to

It Exp'ls Disease .'
It is said that all prodnctions of human skill bin
their day. and are superseded by new invenrions or dii-
coveries. Not so with tbis remedy. ■• It is not fore
ii.u . but for all time, and in all countries.'' And Win?
Because it .--.rikes at the generic root of all di.eatti'ig
the blood, and medical art can ttccomplith nothing be
yond that The Ointment, penetrating through ficsti
and fibre, like water through a porous substance,
reaches the germ or disease, sueh as scrofula, erysiptlx,
cancer, tumor, and all eruptive and ulcerous discharge!
in the circulation, and eradicates the taint at once and
forever in this climate.
Bad Legs.
Tbis Ointment will cure any case of Bad Leg even if
uf twenty year, standing, or however hard or discolored
. the tle.-b may be. or if »>'ollen thc size of a person')
body, provided the Ointment is well rubbed into the
! whole of the parts affected tnicc a day in large qnu-
lilies, and tbe part_- kept coitred with 1 _ncnragstliickl;
spread w ith the Ointment : from this mode of ircntmeti,
a plentiful discharge of unhealthy humor will folios,
until the wounds are all healed on the leg, or other
parts assume their natural appearance.
Old   Wounds,   Sorts, end  Ulcers.
The mo.-t inveterate cases of bad legs, scrofulous,or
other sores, are cured, if of 20 years standing,bjlbe
joint use of the Ointment and Pills. Tbe effect of this
unrivalled remedy upon virulent ulcers and sores, iltl-
most miraculous, lt first discbarges the poison which
produces suppuration and proud flesh, and thus tbe
,-ure.- which it> healing properties afterwards complete,
are safe .-,« well ns permanent. It ha» a wonderful effect
in the .ure of sores occasioned by niO-.-uctos, sandflies, or giggers.
Piles.
This Ointment -»iii cure the worst cases of Piles if
use! a, cording to thc printed directions even if of M
years standing.
Eruptions on the Skin.
Blotches, pimples, dry eruptions, and all irritations
of thc skin, fade and disappear after a few applications
of Holloway's Ointment. In these cases brisk frictien
is indispensable. Many of the ordinary eruptions stl
caused by suppressed perspiration, and as this penetni-
ing ungWcnt at once opens tbe pores, and invigorate)
the absorbents, it dissipates the inflamm.Uion by s
double process. Ladies whose faces or arms are dii'
figured by cutaneous diseases, may readily remove the
blemish and restore to the sk.n its natural tint, Sell-
bility, nnd softness, by the use of this sale lut powerful counter-irritant.
King's Eril, Fever Sores.
In cases of King's Evil where medicinal waters,
lotions, and every recipe of pharmacopoeia bare prorei
useless, tbe Ointment will accomplish a thorough cart.
Fever sores heal quickly under iis influence, and iu
relaxing effect upon contracted sinews is truly wondet-
ful.
Rheumatism, Scrofula, Erysipelas
These are among the moslterrible and ngoniring
eases, vet in their wor_-l forms, and when seeminf'J
incurable, they invariably disappear under a perscvetiiij
application of this southing, healing nntidote to p
and inflammation. ,«*!*
Both the Ointment and Pills should be used in thefomm
