THE EFFECTS OF THE SAVOY ANNEXATION.
{From the London Times.)
Turning from the disr-onsolute clipmpton of
Papacy, we liavemncli pleasure in recognizing
tlio truth and justice of tlie remarks ot Mr
Kinnaird and Mr Kinglake on Friday night,
receiving, as they do, confirmation Irom the
assent or silence of Lord Pal triers ton. Ilis
quite true that the annexation of Savoy has
been very dearly purchased hy thc French
Government. AVe are told this trilling accession of territory may bo regarded with much
favor by a nation which no amount of misery
or slaughter seems able to cure of the fatal
lust for territorial aggrandizement. Tlie emperor may by talving Savoy and Nice have
seated himself more firmly on the throne.
That is quite possible. But beyond the frontier thc feeling that has been created is coldly
rendered by the cautious and diplomatic term
of " distrust." The feeling is somewhat far
more active and energetic than distrust. It
is the desire for mutual support, and assistance;
it has breathed life and some sort of energy
into the torpid and disunited frame of Germany. It litis taught Austria more powerfully than the carnage of Solferino that sho
can only exist by modifying her system of
stupid and objectless repression. It has convoked a Council of tho Empire, which may,
perhaps, bc tlie faint and doubtful dawn of a
better and brighter day. It has roused Prussia
to the defects of her military system, and
taught her to consider how she is to meet tlie
Zouaves with a force little superior to ordinary Militia. It has drawn Austria and
Prussia together- It lias excited the patriotic feelings of Belgium and the energetic protest of Switzerland. And in England it has
done much to dissipate thc dream ofa cordial
alliance, to which we have clung so iondly
and so pcrseveringly, and set us seriously to
work, as Mr Kinglake truly remarks, to prepare for all tho worst evils of war. These
things the annexation ot Savoy has done,
ll any one wishes to measure the amount
ofthe change, let him compare the speech of
Lord Palmerston on Friday evening with his
former speeches when any attempt to inspire
distrust of the Emperor of the French. Perhaps when those matters begin to be better
understood in Prance the nation ma}' see how
high a price must be paid for these territorial
[acquisitions, and how impossible it is to combine at the same time the security and regard
[of neighboring States which wait upon a
peaceful and honorable policy with the gratification or" those empty dreams of ambition
jw'iich the disasters and  miseries of the First
(Empire seemed for a time to have eradicated,
[but which the false policy of Louis Philippe
and the aggressive attitude of thc present
[Government of France havo only too fully
■revived.

boss op Life on Mont Blanc—Three English tra-
■ellers who persisted in ascending Mont Blanc on the
■Mi. of August,  during a snow storm, in spite oftho
hnniislranees of their guides, slid from  a precipice
jliile descending the mountain, and were killed.   They
■ml tied themselves together with a rope tor safety, at
Thstnnce of thoir guides,  three in number, each of
iioin had hold of it to assist them on their way.    One
ftlic guides fell over the precipice with them nnd was
(so killed.    The parly was  excessively fatigued  and
pi' path deeply covered with snow.
| In five years thc public debt of Franco hns increased
j>oyo §500,000,000.     This is considered alarming by
P'liK-inl men in Europe.
The English Cotton Trade.—This last year liritish
India sent near 600,000 bales of cotton to England, and
that, too, when the country was disturbed by war, and
after supplying more than thc usual demand of China.
Since the close of the war, the liritish Government has
completed the connection of 2,SOU miles of railroad in
India, much of which is devoted to the development of
a cotton country, und these efforts are aided by a greater inclination of the natives to cultivate this staple, instead of indigo and opium. From the Brazils the export to the Englisll market was about 125,000 bales,
but .is that country is under the stimulus of English
railroad capital, the increase of that crop is certain.
From Egypt the r .celptS were about equal to that from
Brazil. The crop of .Sierra Leone has increased 1,000
per cent, in seven years, the next four doublings of the
African crop will make it a feature in the Liverpool
market. From all these sources the supply last year
was equal to about _!_) per cent, of that supplied by the
Southern States to the English market, und nearly
equal to the smount consumed by ull the factories in
the United States.

.V  Practical Treatise on the Chemistry  of Coed,

The principal object of tbis book is to tench the miner
•■how to estimate the quantity of gold and silver con-
tnineil in a certain amount of ore, ions to determine i;;
reul value per ton, and how to separate the pure met tl
from the impurities nnd other metallic and non-metallic
bodies connected bv smelting, amalgamating and other
chemical treatment." It also traces the crude ores
from the mines through thc various mechanical and
metallurgical elaborations, until the pure inctal is obtained, und i- illustrated with numerous cuts. It is
scarcely necessary to state that such tt work is an invaluable acquisition to the practical miner, but in no gold
country would liie information contitincd in its pages
prove more beneficial than in Britisli Columbia, where

The surface is undulating, with a rich, lively
soil, well adapted for raising all kinds of cereals; and tho whole of the dividing height of

of acres of this burned land with  scarcely
sufficient timber to construct fences, and an
ordinary man  could clear an acre per week

seven miles wide-     The whole range of the

Capt. Kino and Ji-stice Pkmbeiitox.—On Monday-
last the case of Langford r. Cary came off in the Police
Court of Victoria. The substance of the action was a
charge against Mr. Cary for "obtaining money under
false pretences," in his defence of the libel case of
Langford t\ King, which was decided several months
ago. A great deal of irrelevant nud frivolous matter
was allowed to bc brought into thc proceedings before
Court which caused much angry feeling and personal
altercation. The magistrate decided that the action
was frivolous and entirely devoid of foundation; but
before the decision bad been given thc "lie" had passed
between thc complainant and defendant, and language
was permitted to bc used which would have disgraced
the rowdiest Court in California previous to the days of
thc Vigilance Committee. When thc Court was about
rising two gentlemen, no doubt under the excitement
of the proceedings, and in all probability to a certain
degree influenced by the latitude given to the prosecutor and defendant, called each other liars—a blow was
struck, and Capt. King was arrested for contempt of
Court,—the gentleman who gave the provocation, Mr.
Alston,—by first calling Capt. King a liar was allowed to
march ont of the Court with impunity, while tbe latter

j thc opinion of one of this most eminent Engineers on
this const that however much dredging may take plate
it will be Impossible to prevent it. The Utter, for example, wns, oil her lust trip, obliged to leave at *-,
p. in., in order lo cross the harbor bur of Victori«i
and she draws only from 11 to 12 feet of water. If
therefore the accumulations be so great in two years
what mny not bc expected in two yeurs more. Her harbor will be a thing of the pnst nud her prosperity a telle
of by-gone days. Her wharves arc also rapidly filling
in. Put let us glance nt nur port—we have 110 sucb
obstructions here—the depth in front of our whnrves
rsnges from 20 to 30 feet, while lho greatest depth at
present at Victoria is from 10 to 20 feet. Thiscortainhf
iii-oVi-.* the.'. New Westminster as a harbor is infinitely
better calculated for the reception of vessels of lnrg"
tonnage anil draught of witter, and musl eventually !»'•
come as, I havo already stated, the port of the North
Pacific.

SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE.
To the Editor of the New Westminster Times.
Sin.—Somo 20years ug_- !■ was laughed at for proposing lo look into nn enemy's Fortress by ascending in a i
Balloon. My ideas in those days soared no higher than
for thc gratification ofa professional curiosity as to thc
doings inside some military work, t-ineo then, the Emperor Napoleon, a party nt whom few would venture to
grin, has used a balloon with sign,,', success,  not to
   peer over a mere p.irspct,  but to survey an  extensive
Heavy Gale.—Thc beaviist gale New Westminster   field of battle.
ARRIVALS,

and to Mr. S. T. Tillcy, for San Irancisco papers.    Wc
are also under obligations  to Balpu's and Jeffrey's ex-
has yet seen came on this m.rning nbout four o'clock.
In the outskirts of the torn several large trees were
uprooted, nnd on Columbia-trcct stately barber's poles
prostrated themselves to avid such a "blowing-up."
The "Rose Cottage Markit," one of the largest buildings on Columbia-street, *-as lifted from its supports
and its sides and roof showrcd upon thc heads ot its
inmates like flakes of sn$v—only a little heavier.
There wcre four men in the building at the time,
but fortunately they were eiricatcd from their uncomfortable position without ha-ing sustained any injuries.
Underneath the house, were :vc donkeys owned by the
contractors of the Hope mile trail, and a horse, the
property of a resident of Nw Westminster, but they
all escaped with one unfoiunatc exception—a poor
donkey that had it. back boken by a filling beam.
Thc following items are furnished to us by Mr.
Ballon:—
Drowned.—A man named..uthur Buic was drowned
on Monday last at the Grand 'alls in the Little Kanyon.
His party were engaged in hailing a canoe on ways,
when the unfortunate man sliped and fell into thc river.
The body had not b.en fond when the Moody lett
Yale.
In this country, the forest, interposes a terrible obstacle to thc tracing of roads—ordinary reconnoissanco
from eminences is an impossibility—for, let the altitude
bc ever so great, pines 200 feet in height arc there
around almost defying the ascent ofa cat much less ofa
man.
By the use of a small balloon and the adoption of
simple precautions there would be. no great difficulty in
rising some feet above, thc loftiest pin. or any one knoll
and thence scanning 'he features ofthe ground for miles
around.
Road makers well know thnt large sums might bc
saved were a convenient gorge discoverable before a
pickaxe started on thc line, this promontory bc avoided,
that bluff shunned, excavation and blasting be snved by
tons.
The prico ofa Balloon would probably bo repaid 100
told in any ten miles of road in our rough country, thus
examinod ere adopted. Thero is no practical difficulty
to scare any one from testing tbis suggestion ; a bai-
loon of the size to support a man, with a map, pencil,
compass, and glasses, astride a light cross stick, would
be no great size.; chemicals to create thc gas are portable, or the gas might bc borne in silken bug; nnd leather cased to bc safe from injury by thorns.

THE   NEW   WESTMINSTER   TIMES
.
TIIE SUNBEAM AND THE OCEAN.
A scnbeam, on a summer's day,
Came dancing o'er the ocean spray.
The ocean, on its heaving breast,
Received the welcome, glittering guest.
As they sailed away together,
Scorning to think of wintry weather,
The foaming wavelets, murmering there,
Wcre but obi ocean's bridul prayer.
And thus with life in early morn—
Ere vows nre broke' or hearts are worn—
Love's light gladden? hill and dale,
Dispersing shadows on thc gale—
Charming, by its radiant hue,
The twilighthouror morning dew,
Life's dark tints arc swept along
By its laughing, glorious song ;
All is but a stream of pleasure,
Leading to enduring treasure.
But summer's brightness cannot last,
The wintry chill comes on so fast;
And in lhe icy snow-drop's fall
The sunbeam' hears its oyvn recall.
Then dim old ocean's surging moan
Bewails that he is left alone,
So, when dull age, with leaden dart,
Has struck the fickle- human heurt,
How often one is left alone,
To mov.rii youth's love-light turned to stone.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Steam on Common Roads.—The Banf Journal says:
—'• The Eurl of Caithness, accompanied by the Countess and by the Rev. William Ross, ofKintore,  started
from   Inverness in his steum-curriiigi',  built  under  his
own direction, nud though,  owing to its being ninrket-
duy there,  the road wns filled with horses and conveyances of nil kinds, his Lordship passed through  them
nil without nny more inconvenience to the general traffic,  or i,lurn, to horses, than if he hud been in bis   enr-
riagc-and-four.    So perfectly hud he tin- whole moving
power under his control that he stopped  more quickly
than  nn  ordinary carriage nnd horses could draw up.
and this  he did ns often ns he saw the least danger  of
any horse being frightened.   He reached Bcauly, a distance of fourteen miles, in an hour an twenty  minutes,
notwithstanding  the  frequent  stoppages,   and fifteen
minutes  lost in getting water.    ^tlvr leaving Beauly,
on those parts oftho road where some distance forward
can be seen, he attained the speed of eighteen miles an
hour, nud could have kept this up for any distance with
case  and safety.    Alter reaching Alness  his  Lordship
turned to the left, und took the road direct for  Btinar-
bridge.    Here the carriage hnd a severe test applied  to
it, but  he drove it up the hill  without difficulty,  and
coming down   the very steep declivity  near where the
road joins the road from Tain, the control his Lordship
had  over it was most satisfactory, and enabled him   to
descend at any rate he wished, and witli perfect ease and
safe'y.   Leaving thc Inn at Ardgy, Lord Caithness then
crossed Bonar-bridge, nnd drove on io Clashmore, after
a very succesful  drive of nearly seventy  miles.     The
carriage was made by Mr. T. Rcckett,  Castle  Foundry,
Buckingham, and is a beautiful piece of work."
Thf. Highest Speed.—The highest speed ever attained by horse llesh wns four miles in eleven minutes.
or at the rule of thirty-three miles an hour. The highest speed ofthe locomotive, well authenticated, was on
one of the English lines, nt the rate of seveny-eight
miles an hour. And it is snid that n Holyhead boat hns
run twenty-six sintue miles no hour, ivhich equals the
best time ever made on the North River.
The Perils of Science.—Sonic years ago a large
whale wns caught at the Nore. nnd towed up to London
bridge, the Lord Mayor having claimed it. When it
hnd been nl London-bridge some little time, the Government scut a notice to sny it belonged to them. Upon
which tl e Lord Mayor sent answer, "Well, if the whale
belongs to you, 1 order you to remove it immediately
from London-bridge." The whale was, therefore, towed
down the stream to the Isle of Dogs, below Greenwich.
The lute Mr. Clil't, the energetic nnd talented assistant
nf his great master, John Hunter, went down to see it.
He found it on the shore, with its huge mouth propped
open with poles. In his eagerness to examine the internal parts of the mouth. Mr. Clift stepped inside the
mouth, between the lower jaws, where the tongue issit-
unti'il. This tongue is a huge spongy mass, and being
at that time exceedingly soft, from exposure to air, gave
way like a boy ; nt the same time he slipped forward
towards the whale's gullet, nearly as fur ns he could go.
Poor Mr. Clift wns really in n dangerous predicament;
he sunk lower and lower into the substance of the
tongue nnd gullet, til! he nearly disappeared altogether.
He wns short in stature, nnd in a few seconds would
doubtless have lost his life in lhe horrible oily msss, had
not assistance been quickly afforded him. It was with
great difficulty that a boathook wns put in requisition,
and ihe good little man hauled out of the whale's
tongue.—Bnckland's Curiosities of Natural History.
Mr. Couden's Opinion of American Newspapers.—
The Boston Journal snys :—In a recent letter to a friend,
Mr Cobden makes the following allusion to American
Newspapers, which he is evidently not in 'ove with :
"The paragraph you enclosed, giving a conversation
of mine. is.one of those rascally nets of eavesdropping
for which American ncwspiiner writers nre so
notorious. There is a good deal of the paragraph
which agrees with whnt I have thought ; but whether [
expressed it in private conversation is more than I
could swenr to, us no one expects to be made responsible for private gossip. There ought to he the punishment of the pillory or the stocks revived for those who
publish in newspapers the unguarded remarks which
fall from a man in private conversation, when be frequently speaks merely to provoke a reply and keep people from getting to sleep over too serious nn interchange
of views."
Pairing-Time in the  House  of Commons.—Pairing
time amongst the winged inhabitants  of the nir is thc
14th  of February,    when "birds  begin  to mate;" but
what, snys some country readers, is pairing-time in thc
House of Common..?   Well,   pairing-time in lhe House
is dinner-time;  uml  pairing  means  this:—On a great
night it is never considered safe  for a member to go
away without pairing-off—that  is to say, one man. tor
a question, agrees with another, against it, that neither
may vote until  a  certain  time: and thus  if a division
happe is before they come buck  neither party is weakened by their absence.    This is what is meant by pairing; and, at the dinner-hour the  whips on each side
station themselves at the door  to see that none of their
friends go away without pairs,  and  for   a  time,   the
scene ul tlie door is n very lively one.    The whips stand.
generally, just outside the House, either in the inner or
outer lobby; nnd each hns in his hand a little book in
which ho enters the pairs.    "Cm you get me a pair?"
snys un honourable   member to a whip.    "How lonir
for'.'" "Till ten." "Who wants a pair till ten?"  shouts
the whip.    "I do," is  the   answer   fron   some other
member. "Oh, Brown, here's Jackson  wants  a pair •
and so you enn   pair with   him." Whereupon Jackson
and Brown, who. perhaps,   have  never known   each
other before,   politely  lift  their  hats  and   retire.    "I
want a pair till twelve," cries another.    "Till twelve?
Make it. 11, 30, and I can pair you with Mnlton." "Well
say 11.30, "" Very  well.   Fit/.hugh, you  nre  paired
till 11.30 , wilh   Mnlton,  nnd mny  go."    And so the
work goes on for some hnlf hour;  nnd as, perhaps, in
the course of this time a hundred members are paired, it
mny he easily imagined that, what with the calling out
- of "the whip and the  scudding about of the members,
there is uo small  bustle and confusion.   These agreements to pair are  kept very honourably ; nnd it is very
rare that a member breaks  his  pair by accident and
never is this done by design.    Sometimes we hnve some
very close running.    One niget, Inst Session, a division
was called just before  eleven.    The  Sergeant-at-Arms
was at tbe door ready to shut  it, when ■' member who
was paired till eleven arrived.    Tlie  hand  was  on the
stroke ; it just glided over it; he  rushed  in,  and thc
door was shut, and he saved  the  division.    A minute
his pair came up ; but  the  door was  locked,   and he
lest thc division.
Bright as a Speaker.—lf the test, of the speaker be
the power to arrest thc attention of bis hearers and hold
it, Bright is the best speaker in the House except,ng it
may bc Gladstone ; for uoman with this one exception.
can rivet their minds for an hour as he can. And then,
in judging of Brigbt's power, we must consider the disadvantages under which he labors. He has no official
prestin-e'; in has no great party behind him, like Fi-rn-
eli. Four-fifths of the House dislike both the man and
his principles. And when he speaks nil the sentiments
Which he titters are in direct opposition to the opinions
nnd prejudices ofthe bulk ot his hearers. And yet be
is listened to; -Mid not only listened to but there is
rapt attention while he is speaking, nnd the most rabid
opponent ofthe man and his principles is anxious to
catch every word that he says. It was so when the fortification question was before the House. On the division there were 201. against him nnd only a poor 39
in his tavor. and yet how attentively the members listened to him, and not only listened to him but seemed
to be moved by his speech : for wcre they not absorbed
in their attention, and did they not cheer many of his sen-
ences nnd laugh a jolly laugh nt his humor .' Bright s
speech on this occasion wns one of his most remarkable
efforts. (If course we say nothing here of the sentiments of the speaker. Whether he was right or wrong
we lenve others to decide; but thnt it was a speech ol
great ability nnd most effectually delivered hi3 sternest
opponents confessed.
The English Battalion in the National Aiimv  of
Sicily,—At  the buttle of Mclazzo a body or troops
called the English battalion, commanded by Lieutenant-
Colonel Dunne, did Garibaldi good service.    When the
Neapolitan troops were bcutcn olfthc field of buttle into
the town they made for the upper portion, firing  down
the  streets  its they re-treated.    The English  battalion
followed them close to the fortress,   nnd gi t one of the
most advanced posts.    Throwing up a barricade  across
'.he top of tbe narrow thoroughfare which lends immediately  to the citadel, they maintained a hot lire  against
the Neapolitans  until a'stop was put to  hostilities by
j tlie truce. The Times corespondent, trentingof one of the
most critical periods ofthe battle of Melnzzo, writes  ns
j follows :—"Although the whole movement was  under
tbe orders more especially of Medici. Garibaldi wns,  of
courso, the soul ofthe fight, finding himself invariably
at lhe point most exposed, nnd exposing himself,   us is
his  wont to do.    He was with the centre,  which  wns
mnking its way slowly over and through all the  obstacles, when the news arrived that the lelt, unable to  resist the superior forces of the enemy,  was giving way,
and thus exposing the whole line to be turned on  that
side.    Taking  the only reserve remaining,  a battalion
composci?  of North  Italians and Palermitans  (the so-
called English Battalion), under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Dunne and several other English officers,
he went to the left to stem the advance of the Neapolitans.    His presence and the exertions of the officers  of
the battalion succeeded in steadying those young troops
who not only resisted further attack', but.pushed forward  towards the  guns  with which the enemy was
sweeping    the    road.      One    advance    bolder    than
the rest brought them to the guns; nn English  sailor,
lately enlisted at Patti,  wns the first to  cross  the wall
behind which one ofthe guns was posted, and the next
moment the gun was carried off in triumph.    The Eng-
glish  officers  of the regiment are Lieutenant-Colonel
Dunne, Major Percy Windham, Captain Edward Styles,
Lieutenant Robert Walker (late 16th Regiment),  und
Lieutenant Alfred Styles.

THE BLESSING OF HEALTn
n\*
HOLLOWAY'S     PILLS.
Why arc Diseases so Fatal in  Tropical Climates 1
Merely because we prescribe for their effect, instead
of their cause, and try to relieve symptoms instead of
triking 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, and 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
Piiis annihilate the disorder.
Ill Health in Hot Countries.
Frequently arises from nervous disorders affecting
the action of lhe henrt and deranging the whole animal economy : these fine Pills will restore the nervous
systom however deranged, and bring back health and
spirits when all other medicine lias 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 accord:ng
to thc directions given in the books, and their ailments
will quickly leave them.
Dropsicul 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, uml like a tide sweep away health nnd
life itself, if not timely and powerfully checked. The
most certain remedy for nil these dangerous 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. These 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 iu warm latitudes ; few escape them ; .'lid, if
neglected, Ihey lend to innumerable dangerous maladies.
But why neglect thcin when Ilollowuy's Pills will eradicate them ns certainly as water extinguishes fire?
They relieve the bowels, purify the fluids, and invigoi-
nto the system und the constitution at the same time.
They are admitted by virtue of special decrees into thc
dominions of despotism, and thus have become a great
household remedy.
Dysentery and Bowel Complaints.
These famous Pills should be taken once or twice a
week by all classes in tbis part of tlie 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, nnd which, when
neglected, always shortens life, are relieved for the
time being ami prevented for the time to come, by a
course of this mild but thorough alterative.
Holloway's  Fills are the best remedy known in the world
for the following diseases:—
Bilious Complaints   Erysipelas Stone  and Gravel
Blotches on the      Female  Irrcg- Liver Complaints
sk,n ulurities Lumbago

It litis long been a most important desideratum in '.he practice
of medicine, to obtain a remedy similar to this, nml accordingly
we find It resorted to almost universally In all those tormenting
diseases of the skin so trying to the pattonce, and Injurious ie

simultaneously upon thc stomach, the OIEOULATION, and th„
bowels, and thus three processes, which are ordinarily the result
of TUBES different kinds of medicine, are carried on at the nnine
time through the instrumentality of this osk remedial ngcut.
Its great merit is, that it meets and neutralizes the active prln

Lynn County, Oregon Ter., March 11,1S55.
Messrs. A. B. k D. Sands, New York: Gentlemen,—In the
spring of 18_>3, while on our way IVom Indiana to this place, our
eldest hoy was seized with it swelling nnd severe pains In tho
iegs. which day by .lay grow wot-so, until his legs contracted,
and became so painful that ho coulil not walk, and w-e had ta
carry lilm about like an Infant. Wo reached Albany on the .Id
of October, completely worn out by fatigue. liy this time ho
was reduced to a perfect skeleton. Hero wo wero enabled to
consult a physician (Dr. lllll), who honestly confessed lie coulil
not cure him, although he could give him medicine that would
relieve the pain. In tills exigency something must be done, or
death was inevitable Being recommended to try your Snrsn-
parilla, I procured a bottle, After taking some, ho appeared
worse: but persevering with It, I obtained a second bottle,
which seemed to grapple with the disease, und caused a marker;
Improvement: the swelling and pain In the legs were reduced,
his appetite ii.,proved, and his color began to return. Thus on-
ciinrnged, I purchased a third bottle; while taking It, the swell
lugs li, his legs broke, and some pieces ot bono one-eighth of
an Inch long came out, nfter which his legs stralghieiteil and
healed up. llo Is now perfectly recovered, has no appearance
of being a cripple, and can perform most kinds of common labor,
as all our neigbbois can certify.   Yours, respectfully,
