{From the London Times.)
The third anniversary of the
Delhi h.is passed, and nol a shi"
Indian prize money has yet been received by
its conquerors- The l.ritir,h troops, who
fought po well in India, have every claim to
consideration that can possibly be imagined.
They braved the Indian climate fit the very
worst period oftheyeai—atatirae, indeed, I
when the natives themselves wcre hardly capable of active service on thoso burning plains
under tbe rays of a vertical sun- Thoy executed inarches the length and Severity of
which posterity will deem hardly credible.
Tbey fought battles against men armed and
disciplined like themselves, where the disparity oi number seemed to render success hopeless, and yet. they gained a series of complete
rilliant victories-   On their bravery and j
a knowledge of the demand, in improving the
cultivation of the plant, and in organizing the
the trade; but, if English capital is carried
| out., and English agents are set to work, we
may be very sure that all the rest will spood-
ily follow. A few years will see us relieved
of our periodical cotton panics, and the chief
industry of the nation exempted from dangers
which nobody can contemplate without alarm.

steadiness, on their discipline, and on their
patient endurance of hardships almost incredible, depended the retention by England of
her .Eastern Empire, with all the ulterior
effects which its loss must have had upon her
position as a great Euro],can power. The
army was itself a very heavy loser by the
destruction occasioned by the mutinies. The
only indemnity of any consequence it could
obtain was the Prize-money which it bad
won under circumstances so unparalleled.
All the other achievements ofthe army, wonderful as the}* were, sank to nothing in comparison with the beige of Delhi- The stake
was not only tho existence of the English
Empire in India, but the existence of every
European man, woman, and child whose duty
had called them into the far interior, ll Delhi

man or woman would ever have returned

M. Alpbunse Esquiros, iu the Revue dee Deux Monies,
commences a series of articles on the military state of
England, rrom wnicii we extract the following ;—" Thc
idea has been too lightly spread that Great Britain is
nut. a military nation ; the movement that has taken
place during the Inst year in the United Kingdom sufficiently confutes this opinion, which at a given moment
may become dangerous to the other States of Europe,
On what besides is based the assertion that England is
only a naval power of the first class? Have nol the
English soldiers, although never numerous, sufficed for
11 the great eventualities of history? Has not the
; weight Of their arms been felt for centuries past in the
balance in which arc weighed the destinies ofthe continent? Each time that it was necessary to conquer,
have they not conquered? I will not awaken irritating
recollections, I will not write thc name of a great battle so painful to our national self-love; it suflics to recall the fact thnt lately England, with a handful of men
re-eonquered India. Instead of denying history, it were
better to seek by what ties the liritish character is
linker! to the group of martial nations. The Englishman is not warlike from taste ; he docs not love war fof
war's sake, or maintain an army (br the ruinous pleasure
of seeing liayoucts glitter and banners flaunt. He has
an army to defend bis territory, his commerce, the immense network of his external relations and affairs. Experience has more than once shown him thc necessity of
pulling the pride of riches undci tie protection of'eour-
age. Thc English soldier lias less entbii.-iism than
coolness, On a battlefield he dies as he lives, with resolution and from a sentiment of duty. Immovable in
his ranks, he feeis that the responsibility of thc labor
which has made England an opulent nation rests upon
his arms, the military element presents, then, in Great
Britain, peculiar and interesting traits. And then quite
lately, besides  the  regular army, a  new independent

complete idea of the forces of England. It seems imprudent for Europe to judge those forces on vague reports, which alternately attenuate and exaggerate the
character of the armaments I think Ihat the armaments ami military reforms ofthe United Kinilom aro of
a nature to make Europe seriously reflect. Every nation ofthe continent, no mutter which, that should feel
disposed to come into collision with Great Britain ought
to think twice about it. First and foremost she would
find before her the  old  wooden wall of Oltl  England,

Tim UsiTSD Stateb.—Speaking at  Detroit  (Michigan)   on the 4th inst., Mr. Seward reviewed  the whole
course of United States' politics.    He begins by saying
that the Federal Government ofthe United Stales " has
failed to  secure  respect and good  will  abroad"   and
" gootl order, contentment, and harmony at home ; "—
" The  Canadians  certainly neither envy  nor love  us.
All  the  independent   American Powers from the  Rio
Gnind  to  Cape  Horn, while they strive  to  construct
Governments tor themselves after our models, fear, and
many  of them hate us.    European nations do,   indeed,
revere  our constitutions and admire our progress, but
they  generally  agree in pronouncing  us  inconsistent
with our organic principle, nnd capricious.    The President  inveighs against corruption among tbe  people.
The immediate  representatives of thc people in  Congress charge the President with immoral practices, and
the  President protests, against their action ns subversive of the Executive prerogative.    The House of Representatives organizes itself convulsively.)  amid confessed dangers of popular commotion,   The Sonatelistens
unsurprised,  and almost without excitement,  to  menaces of violence, secession,  and disunion.   Frauds in
the Territories are palliated anil rewarded.    Exposure,
and  resistance  to them are condemned and  punished,
while the just, enlightened, and reasonable will  of lhe
people there, though constitutionally expressed, is circumvented, disobeyed, and disregarded.   States watch

Even  the  Democrats are ho less  dissatisfied,     They

masses, by whatever means, and ut whatever cost, desire lhe establishment and protection of slavery in the
Terrilories, so that none of the new Slates may  fail   to
become  sl.ive  States.    Thc East is discontented   with
the neglect of its fishery, manufactures, and navigation,
and the West is impatient under the operation of a national   policy  hostile to its agricultural and social   developments.    What Government in the world but ours
has  persistantly  refused to improve   rivers,  construct
harbors, and establish lighthouses for the protection of
its commerce?   Xew  and anomalous combinations of
citizens appear,—in the North, justifiylng armed instigators  of civil and servile war, in tho South,  devising

than  ever before.    The last forty years havo constituted a period of signal nnd lamentable failuro in tho efforts of statesmen to adjust, and establish a federal policy
for the regulation of the subject of slavery in its relations to thc Union.

Why arc 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
trilling nt their root. The action of these Fills is precisely the reverse. They eipcl from the secretive organs and the circulation the morbid matter which produces inflammation, pain, fever, debility, mid physical
decay ; and the basis of disease being removed, ils
manifestations vanish. While ordinary remedies only
afford a temporary respite to the sufferer, whereas these
Pills annihilate the disorder.
Ill Health in Hoi Countries.
Frequently arises from nervous disorders affecting
llie action of the heart and deranging the whole animal economy ; these line Fills will restore the nervous
systom however deranged, and bring hack health and

Bilious and Livtr Complaints.
Frequently lead to the worst phases of human suffering, yet hoi. many in the East and West Indies, and

They are admitted by Virtue of special decrees into the

Taxation has, from the earliest, days, been
tho most important pari of legislation- In
•what way tho greatest revenue could bo
raised with the least pul,lie, dissatisfaction has
troubled the brain of the most astute .statesmen in all a^es- Society may bc divided
into classes socially and politically— party
feeling may embitter to almost a savage extent the relations of individuals, but a call on
the public purse will alway effect amost rapid
and startling unanimity of feeling; and induce
the divided hosts to make coin mon cause against
tho arch enemy of mankind, the Government.
British Columbia owes, perhaps, its unanimity of sentiment more to theso frequent
raids of Government on thc pockets of thc
it-habitivnte limn to any eitVicr ooureu- Moil
of a quiot, plodding temperament aro converted by a Mulo Tax Proclamation into
infuriate politicians, and an extra percentage
on import duet throws Now Westminster into
a ferment. It is nothing new, therefore, or
unnatural to find the recent Tolls Proclamation the subject ofa great outcry and considerable censure, although it is something rather
novel to discover an attempt made to throw
all thc taxes of tho country into one heap to
be collected at the Tort of Entry- Arguments
aro brought forward b» tho inhabitants of
Douglas and Cayoosh against tho justice of
tho "Tolls Act," and wc must confess with,
to a ccrain extent, a show of reason, it is
alleged that tho road recently constructed
from I'ort Douglas to Lilloet Lake has been of
litllo use to tlio traveller or packeron account
of slides from the side cuttings having made
tho lino of travel impassable; and wo also
learn that through the withering of the leaves
of tho brushwood used in building tho road,
and the late heavy falls of rain, tho gravel
has dropped through—leaving, in some places,
nothing but tho side-logs remaining- At
Gi. raltnr Hill the road has been in a frightful
condition,—after considerable delay and loss
of time, however, in travelling, private enterprise removed all thc obstructions and otherwise ropaired tho road so as to make it
passable; yet these very same parties ar#
charged a heavy toll (or travelling on a road
that up till tho present has been actually
kept ir, repair through their gratuitous services. It is not surprising, therefore, to find
much dissatisfaction prevailing; but it is
unfortunate that that feeling should have
been directed against tho principle of levying
Tolls, than which a fairer or wiser method of
raising revenue does not exist. The original
Mulo Tax was bad on principle. It attempted
forcing the population to pay lor what
was not actually in existence; but tho
present impost, though certainly rather
heavy, is nothing more than carrying out the
name method of maintaining roads that is
practised by almost every civilized country.
The expenditure oftho Colonial revenue will
havo to be devoted for many y_ars to the
construction of means of communication
throughout tho country, and it is only fair
that thoeo who aro immediately benefited
by such public works should contribute to
thoir maintenance. It is rather fallacious to
suppose that, because tho Colony in general obtains an advantage by tbo formation of every trail or line of route through
the interior, that the Colonial revenue should

Your Memorialists would beg leave to inform  your

thc contractors got paid,  and tiovcrnmcnt
grants would, under tho immediato supervision of the people for whose benefit they
wero intondod, go inure than twice thoir
j,resent extent. Putin this, as in other neglects, the inhabitants of the interior havo
themselves to blatno. They had every opportunity given them by the Governor to form
themselves into legal representative bodies
whi h would, in the course of a little time,
havo changed the whole face of affairs in the
Upper couutry. Thoy have not done so, and
thc result is they arc compelled to pay heavy
Tolls on roads that have turned out more like
pitfalls than highways for waggon transit.
This is a subject which every day increases
in importance- Next year we hope to see nut
only the completion of a good waggon road
along tbe remaining port ages between Douglas
and Cayoosh, but tho establishment of an arterial highway from Cayoosh to Alexander. The
nature ofthe country between tho two latter
places would mako such tin enterprise comparatively!, inexpensive, and the neccsity of
having a grand trunk road throughout the
colony, not only connecting with our principal gold fields, but intersecting upwards of
one hundred and fifty miles of open agricul-
ctiral land, certainly makes itself apparent.
We learn, from miners just returned from tho
Upper country, that more than one hundred
parties are pre-ampliiig claims and making
arrangements for immediate settlement in
various localities along this route, and there
is every indication ofa large fanning population becoming resirteui. ;,. a,;^ puiuun „r ei.~
country. Put ws hopo thai in the future
construction of the much-needed roads
throughout the colony the work of contractors will bc supervised by BCientitic and
practical men b-vforc thc public money is
paid away.
Thc news from Cariboo, even at this season of the
year, is highly exciting. On the North and South
Forks nf Quesnelle River thero are upwards of loo
miners who intend remaining during thc winter season,
in order to be on the ground at lhe earliest favorable
period for working. Between fourteen and (iflncn miles
on the North Fork of Qui'snellc, ICeilhly, of Cariboo
celebrity, lias again been favored by fortune. Willi
two of his partners, in six working days, $1,335 were
washed out by a rocker—one of those days 21 ounces
were obtained out of 200 buckets. At Keithley's Creek
on the Cariboo, Black's claim still continue., to pay
from §25 to i?35 a day. Edward's purl-r wore luiihing
about, a similar amount, llnzeltino k Co,, working in
lhc celebrated Weaver's Hill claim aro milking an ounce
a day to the hand tunnelling, with every prospect of an
increase. A prospecting parly composed of Messrs.
Georgo Weaver and Martin started from Cariboo and
made a lour throii;;!, .hut roprio,, of country, touching
at Bcnr River, Swamp River, and several other of their
tributary streams. They were absent sixteen days, anil
reported the whole couutry which they traversed as
being highly auriferous. Their statement is considered by every one as mo«t authentic, coming as it
does from such experienced prospectors, At, Rich Bar,
above Alexander, a party of miners are engaged in
bringing-in a water-ditch from a small lake about IV
miles distant. A tunnol about a mile in Icn^lb is also
being cut through a mountain, by ih« same party,
through which lhc ditch will pass. When this ditch is
completed, the miners on Rich Bar will obtain a result
commensurate with the greatness ol the undertaking.
At no period during the present year has so great, nn
amount of confidence and good spirils existed amongst
Hie business and mining community than .it present -
every one looking forward to the spring -witli strong
anticipation of n golden harvest. Letter.- arc dispatched
by almost every mail to relutlvcs nnd friends in California, persuading them to come to tho Upper eon,,try.
A party of men have left Alexander for the purposo of
exploring a suitable line of route for a trail connecting
that place with the coast. Indians bring salmon frequently from the coast, in about five or six days ; and
il is expected that an available route will he discovered
which will enable packers lo bring provisions from the
coast to Alexander nt ns cheap a rate as they are
now brought from New Westminster to Lilloet. It is
worthy of remark thut miners in the Carrihoo and upper
counlry have been enabled to work up till tho loth of
November this year, fully six weeks later than at
Quesnelle last season.
The President having decided that tho By-Law  for
organizing a Fire company, not hu.itij been passed in

A motion was then brought forward by Mr. Cormnc,
seconded by Mr. Manson, that the office of paid Treasurer should cease from the present date, on account of
insufficient municipal funds, and the moneys to be
handed over in Mr. Cooper, of the Treasury ; und that
a vote of thanks be given to Mr. Armstrong, senior, for
bis services.
Mr. Armstrong, junior, opposed lbe motion on the
grounds that it wns gotten up through tho influence of
an outside and vindictive clique. From what be could
learn, be believed four-fifths of the few residents thnt
signed the peiition which wits presented io the council,
did so through falsehoods that had been circulated
about the actions of tho council. Resolutions hud been
I brought into the council lime after time for the evident
purpose of insulting the Treasurer nud his bondsmen ;
but none of the gentlemen hud evinced thc moral
courage to refuse the bond, which were given to the
council, and which hnd, up till the present time, bee,,
retained by that body. When these parties found they
could uot refuse tlie bonds, they passed a resolution requiring the bondsmen to take an oath which they must
have   known   Would  hate   been

The bondsmen refused to   take  the oath on lbe ground

portion of it bj -law.
Mr. lloi ->k also opposed the motion, and tooit n
similar view with Mr. Armstrong in refereuceto the attempts niade to niino.i the Treasurer and his bondsmen.

The remaining £8000 was proposed to be spent on»
Light-ship, Governor's residence, and other worki
strictly of a general colonial nature, and all urgently
required ; and if the colony Is to progress rapidly then

•• Lilloet' very indlguntly asks, " Why duties pal j u
the inhabitants ol the Upper country should bis expend.
ed in New Westminster?" The writer had n„ iurt
idea, whin he wrote the proposed expenditure; iico.b
wished that a portion ofthe revenue derived from the
sale uf the tow,, site and suburbs of Nor \Vestinin-
ster, should be expended for the benefit of the hW.
It may astonish "Lilloet" and his friends to be |g.
formed that thu sale of town lots lu New Wostmliutg

Members present, the President (Mr. M'Clure,)
Messrs. Armstrong, Holbrook, Cormac, Brown, and
lily tor Urn 'treasury ,n castl in mc ltnu.la or tl._ .ouiioil,
but it was refused, and lie was asked to take nn oath
which no magistrate unless having extrajudicial function? could give. The motion, although meeting in
some portion his snuctlon he would not vote for on tbe
ground of its being illegal.
Mr. Manson supported the motion because be considered the Treasurer had not fulfilled his duties in accordance with the by-lnw appointing him—inasmuch
as no quarterly report was given to thc council at the
quarterly meeting. Willi regard to the Treasurer's
bonds, lie did not think the council ever entertained
tliem on account of the non-compliance of the bondsmen with the resolution requiring ihein to swear thev
were worth their respective securities. He believed
thc Treasurer hnd forfeited his ollice. In fact bo did
not look upon him n* Treasurer nt all.
The President asked leave of the council to make u
few remarks before the motion wns put, which was
granted. Dp agreed with tho resolution so fur as regarded economy, for the duties of lhe Treasurer were
really too trilling for a paid salary. lie believed every
mem ber of the council wits nlso of that opinion, although
at the time of appointment they considered a paid ollicer
necessary, lie, however, could not support lbe motion
from the simple fact that, as had been already slated,
it was illegal. An alteration or tin amendment to a
by-law coulil only be accomplished through another
by-law. Mr. Armstrong was to all intents nnd purposes
the Treasurer of the council, ns his appointment bad
been sanctioned by both the council and the Governor,
ami be bad discharged tbe duties of his ollice faithfully,
The whole confusion seemed to have arisen trout a motion which passed the council in the President's absence, requiring thc bondsmen to take nn oath. By
making this a foundation, which was certainly an illegal one, all the subsequent acts of certain members
based upon it were illegal. He believed the council hnd
no power to qualify a by-law by a resolution, which was
done in that instance, and be thought the members who
passed the resolution deserving of censure for not ascertaining, after all the bad ■feeling which it bad created,
whether or not it was legal. lie would support a by-
lnw far the abolition of tbe paid Trcnsurorship, but
be would necessarily opposo the present njption.
The motion wns then put .noimsmsimsfyiic Resident
exercising his second and casting vote.   Cdb^/J^
Mr. Dewdney, as one of the principal gcrillcinnn connected with the petition, obtained leave to innke a few
remarks, which were to the effect that considerable dissatisfaction prevailed at the rumors which hnd been
cicculiitcd in connection with the office of Treasurer.
lie thought it was the opinion of many thai the resolution, which the council bud passed, ordering the clerk
to take the municipal funds from lhc Treasurer
to the Colonial Treasury, sh.iil.1 have been carried out,
and he therefore considered the council blameable
for not doing so. Much more was said in reference to
the subject of the petition, when
Mr. Kennedy rose and said, ns Mr. Dewdney had been
allowed to interrupt thc proceedings in a verv irregular
and unbecoming manner, he. thought he might bo permitted to speak. It wns quite evident to ltiiiiar.il every

The Prince Pays His Way.—Some people when
they go from one place to another, calculate upon their
luck in putting them through ; others travel on their
"muscle;" others travel on their beauty; others on
their talents (very few in number) : others on Ihcir impudence : nud oihcrs on dead head tickets; but with
Lord Renfrew it can bc emphatically snid that he travels- on his money. From Cincinnati to Pittsburg, he
pays the modest sum of Iwo thousand dollars for a special train ; but while he pays in accordance with royalty, he expect." lo receive immunities not grunted to
ordinary men. The train which bears His Highness,
has the entire right of iho roads. An engine specially
detailed, precedes the train, to keep the track clear,
nnd look out for any imperfections in the road, that
would jeopardize the safely of the Prince and royal retinue. The ngent of the Prince who is a cousii to him
on Albert's side, nrrnnges all his travelling matters,
and stipulates in the bargain with railroad companies,
that, on no considarntion, shall any person be allowed
on board lhc trnin, except those necessary to manage
:t; and the.e are prohibited from entering the royal
cur. hut ride in one appropriated to their use near the
Tiik Gfo.h.ipiiy of Consumption—An Interesting
Statement.—The following valuable information if
co i ul from lhe manuscript of a forthcoming work entitled "Influence of Climate in North America," to be
compiled by Mr. J   Disturnell :—
''Consumption originates in all latitudes from the
equator where lhe mean temperature is eighty degrees
Fahrenbei', with slight variations, to the higher position of llie tempera! • zone, where the menu temperature
is fortv degrees,with sudden and violent changes. The
opinion long entertained, ihat it is peculiar In cold and
humid climates, is founded in error. Far from tbis
being the case the tables of mortality warrant the conclusion thnt consumption is sometimes more prevalent
in tropical than in temperate countries. Consumption
is rare in thc Arctic regions, in .Siberia, Iceland, the
Orkneys and Ilebiilcs; also in the northwestern portion of the United Slate. In North America, 'the disease's of thc respiratory organs, of which con-
snmp'ion ii ihe chief, have their maximum in New
England, in latitude about 12 dec., and diminish in a,!
directions from this point inland. The dimuuition is
quite ,is rapid westward as southward, and a large district near the . Olli parallel is quite uniform nt 12 to 15
percent, of deaths from consumption, while Massachusetts Virie3 from 20 25. At thc border of the
dry climate of thc plains in Minnesota, a minimum is
attained ns low as that occurring in Florida, and not
exceeding five per cent, of the entire mortality. It is
stil1 lower in Texas, uml ihe absolute minimum for the
continent in temperate latitudes i< in Southern California.' The upper pcnin-iila ofMichigan, embracing thc
whole of ihe Lake Superior region, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Washington Territory are all alike exempt, in
n remarkable degree, from the nbnve f.ttnl disease. In-
vilids suffering from pulmonary complaints and throat
disease are almost uniformly benefitted by the climate
of ihe above northern region, having a mean annual
temperature of from 40 degrees to 4o degrees Fahrenheit.''
Pleuro-Pn-eumoNia in Great RniTAi"..—Mr, A. Barbie,
w!io wis .ent to England from New Brunswick to purchase and transmit stock to Ihat province has returned
without bringing nny ne.it stock, lie found that the
pleiiro-pneumonia wns so prevalent throughout Eng-
l.ni'], Scotland, nnd Trelu id, that it was dangerous to
attempt to transport cuttle to the port of embarkation.
Th" existence of the disease is kept a secret as much as
possible by the farmers, but Mr, Barbie was furnished
with ample certificates to the prevalence of thc disease
by large breeders und gentlemen, as well as veterinary
A GusiUNO young lady who saw Lord Renfrew at
Niagara Falls, writes to the Newark Advertiser that she
ii "enchanted" with him. She say,; " lie is so modest,
so nice, so well brought up ; every look is n triumph
garland on the brow of his estimable mother; ihat rich
complexion—eminently Prussian, with line eyes sparkling wilh innocence and betokening nil the fresh ness of
adolescent interest in what was passing about him—it
was plain to sec Unit he had been taught his true position under hei v in nnd towards It's humblest fellow, and
that thc curse of satiety has not. blighted one well-spring
o 'his .oul.'' That female, si'ys lhe N. Y. Daybook,
ought to bc invited to open the Academy bull with the
"Lord ofthe Isles.''
Destructive Fire caused nv Friction,—A singular
and  distressing accident occurred lust Monday in   the
township of Mountain, county Dundas,    An eight horse
power threshing machine was employed in the barn of
Mr. Solomon  Jones:  about  80  bushels   of wheat  had
been thrshed and was on lhe floor.    The enormous, and
ns the result proved, dangerous speed which  this   machine  ntlnincd,   resulted in lhe   over-heating of some
small cog wheels.    These had been previously drenched
with  oil   for  n similar reason.     lu   some   mysterious
manner  fire  was communicated  to  the   surrounding
chaff; fanned  by  the  breeze which blew through  Unburn.    In an instant the spark became a Hume, nnd accelerated by lhc presence ofthe oil, it shot up nt  once
to the  very  roof.     Mr. Junes,   who wns on  the  mow
throwing down thc sheaves, had barely timo to escape
with his life.    Of the pair of horses nearest the  door,
one  wns almost  instantly scorched to death, and   its
mate was extricated with much difficulty in a sadly
mutilated condition.    In   twenty minutes nothing  remained of a large barn filled with precioui?grain,  but
n heap of smouldering ashes.—Broekville Monitor.
One hundred nnd forty-three bodies of persons who
perished in lhe steamer Lady Elgin disaster have been
recovered. It. is proposed to give the unrecognized
dead of thc steamer common burial ut Chicago, with a
monument commemorative ofthe event.

The Prince's Personal Wealth.—It may not bc
uninteresting to know, that irrespective ofthe Prince
heing heir to the throne of Great Britain, lie is a 50 one
ofthe richest young men ofthe age, and his cash property at this time of over £700,000, irrespective of this
accumulating estate. This vast sum has arisen from
the furplus revenues from the estate of the Duchy of
Cornwall to which he became entitled immediately alter he was born, and whicli have been accumulating
with interest from that time, and this fund will still go
on incre-ising, until he, us other subjects of the Queen,
attain the age of twenty-one, so that by that time, tbe
amount of money he will stand possessed of, will be
nearly £1,000,000 sterling, in hard cash. It has been
usual to consider the Princes of the Royal Family of
age at eighteen, but the Queen, in this instance, has in
in all other matters as a good mother, not allowed
her children any more privileges than are enjoyed by
others ot her subjects.
Mrs. Partington says thnt she dont see why the
Orangemen -:an't be allowed to stand upon the docks to
see the Prince of Wales, just ns well as the peanut pedlars or the molasses candy boys.

Jtessrs. A. B. & D. Sands, New York : Oentlemen,—In the
spring of 1868, whilo on our way from Indiana lo this place, onr
eldest hoy was selr.ed with a swelling and severe pains in the
laps, whirl, day hy day ^rew worse, until his lops contracted,
and became so painful that be could not ..elk. and we lis,l tt
cany him about like an infant. We. reio'lied Albany on tbe ?<d
ot October, completely worn out by fatigue, fly this time he
wsa reduced t„ a perfect skeleton. Hero we were enabled to
.oneult a physician (Dr, Hill), who honestly oonfessed bo could
not euro him. although he could give him medicine thai would
relieve Ihe pain. In this exigency something must lie done, or
desth was inevitable. Ilelny reoommended to try your Bursa-
parilla, I procured a bottle. After takinc some, he appeared
wtr-r; but persevering with It, I obtained n second bottle.
whicli s,-, med to grapple with Ihe disease, end reused a marked
Improvement: the swelling and pain in the legs wen, reduced,
bis appetite Improved, and his eolor begun lo return. Tb„» encouraged, I purchased a third bottle; while taking Jt, tho swelling! In hi. legs broke, nnd i-olil* pieces uf bone one-eighth of
an ind, long came out, after winch his 1,-rs straightened and
hcalod up. Ha is n„w porfeotly recovered, has no appearance
of being a cripple, and enn perform most kinds of common labor,
at all our neighbors can certify.    Yours, respectful!.,
