(From the London Times,)
Punishment in the case of the Pope's Irish
Brigade has not hobbled up with her proverbially  halting steps,    Tlie old  beldam,  for
I once, has come upon hor  victims s-viftand
; straight its an arrow from ft bow The wretched creatures who were kidnapped by tlie recruiting agents of the Roman Pontiff   have
i learnt, to   their cost, that   there  tire worse
ir.iitiires in the world than thc well-abused
[Anglo-Saxons, on whom Ihey have been vent-
ling their picturesque discontent  ever   since
iwe were all little boys together; and, oh I but
it is grand lo hear the Pope taken in hand by
'• Ilis Own !" it is  not wo who say it—not wc
but a returned ro ruit, who loved the Pope so
|lhat he went to shed bis blood in bis defence.
Hero is a sketch from  !if  for you:—" Rome
lis a small placo, and the streets aro narrow,
and so till by thai cvory one is like a stench-
Ijiole, while tlie beggars that follow you cvory-
rwlicre look bo miserable and wretched that
[they nearly break your heart to hear them
II iv for ' Bread, bread,1 while the priests arc
■en everywhere eating, drinking, and smole-
ling, as if tbey bad nothing else in the world
11 o do.     Oh I how  my heart  panted  for Old
Ireland, and how 1 prayed to be away from
Ilhis accursed place l':    Many other travellers
bad arrived at the  same  conclusion as the
Pope's Irish recruit; but they wcre heretics,
and, of course, their tesli 1110113* (''d not go for
punch.    It is curious enough that just side bv
itlc with the ' impressions de voyage' of the
[rope's Irish recruit wo have a report of some
statistical proceedings which have just taken
place in the county of Cork.     From these it
[ii'i'icais  that  within  the  last twenty years
■there has  been  an increase  in the county of
[Cork of one hundred thousand  acres of land
■producing food crops.     Pigs have slightly de-
Itreased, but horned cattle within the twenty
lycars  have  more  than  doubled  in number.
'The exports of butter in annual value amount
to one million pounds sterling.    Contrast the
■condition of Ireland with  that of the pope's
■peculiar city.     Let us, however, for the 1110-
iiiient confine ourselves  to  tho adventures of
Bthc  Pope's   Own.    One hundred and  sixteen
lot these unfortunates  turned up last week at
the ollice ol the  ' Nation,' bent upon having
bin interview with Mr. Sullivan, who bad b'd
Vhem   to   believe   that il tbey would join thc
rope's army tbey would receive two shillinss
p day and the  'hoighth of treatment.'     Mr.
-"iilliva.ii however most judiciously would have
nothing to say them-    The Dublin priests shut
ieir doors in the faces 01 the star, clings who
■ind gone to fight for their spiritual chief, but
nud returned iu  rags, without glory,   and
1,'ithout having struck one blow for the true
Villi-     The substance ofthe statements made
ly th^fjc  wretched creatures  may be given
is l'nllo\.Ts: They were recruited in Dublin by
Jr. Siilliv.Mi,  s"»d  each got twelve shillings
Ind sixpence as his passage money (0 Liver*
nol-   At Liverpool they were taken in hand
Iv a certain  .Father o'ltcilly, -who forwarded
lii-iii on to Hull-    -It was on an unlucky day
\r themselves that they quitted the shores of
fnglai.d,  for from tiitO  moment tbey  wcre
Btsscd on board the Antwerp steamer as deck
[tssengers their real sufferings began-   From
Intwerp  they wcre  drafted  011 to Koine in
■ie course, but thiy* wero much dissatisfied
f itli their treatment during the transit-  They
fere put to sleep on the floors and stables of
fatch-houses.     Their food was black bread
|nl beer, diversified  with  Macearoni soup,
lid occasionally a slice of ' stinking German
lusago' for a relish-   Even these delicacies
fere administered only  twico   during   the
ity-four hours, and in sueh small qunnli-
|es and ol such bad quality ' that they served
In her as emetics than as satisficrs of the ap-
V'lile.*   The recruits admit, or rather lottdiy
fcclaro, that English work-house paupers are
rented as gentlemen in comparison with the
|etttmont they received  at the hands of the
toman  Pontiffs recruiting sergeants-     All
•lis was hard enough of endurance, but it
[as not until they wero fairly within the Pail dominions that they discovered there was
deeper depth of misery even than this-
°n their march from Maeorati to Jtonie thc
cut her was sn hot that tiiey could scarcely
and  up  against, it-     They say they wore
died upon  to  march  tin average ot forty
'les a clay on one meal of brown bread and
id soup.     This was bad  enough, but,  as
Ough  it  bad  been   seriously  intended  to
ock the  men  in then* misery, there was a
t'tain Dr. O'Loughlin, from Waterfowl, who
t-'onipanicd  the.forlorn  Brigade- but tho
v- gentleman  had  taken care to provide
insolf with what tho poor men called a 'car'
•h tt pair of  horses.   They remained at
"no three weeks in a slate  of utter wrotcli-
"e8s; strong men sank under tho treat-
cot, but there was no redress ; the beggars
Kgeii of thorn na if they hntl anything to bestow, nntl
.l' Pricsta laughed nt them.    How could they havo
jenisneli fools as to conic hero at all.     'The priests,'

to   soldiors and people ot   Home,  and we soon

upon thousands of the miserable creatures who live
under the dominion of the prieBts, they certainly would
not have sought to better their condition by throwing in
their lot with the defenders of Pius IX. To do them
but simple justice, we tlo not believe thnt, if they had
kuow:i the real state of the case, they Would, even for
the consideration 3s, per diem and thc 'hoighth of
gOOd treatment,' have given their aid in perpetuation of
such tlirc Buffering and oppression, Where were the
Irish recruits to turn In the midst of their misery 7
They went, as we always supposed they would go, to
the English Consul, although they were told that if
they applied to him they wotiltl be shot. .Shooting or
no shouting, however, they could hold out no longer,
ami so crept lo the Consul a house at night and stated
their case. From thi.-- gentleman tbey found help, although they admit themselves thnt they had forfeited
all claim to it. Some of them feigned illness; some of
them cut their legs ; some of them maimed themselves,
iu order that they might gel into hospital, and be sent
home. They were willing to Buffer anything ' rather
than remain in that horrible service' .Such is the Story
which the Pope's recruits tell ofthe treatment they met
with from his agents.

For thc cure of Dyt^epsia, Indigestion, Constipation
Loss of Appetite <r  any Bilious  Complaints
arising from a morbid action  of the
Stomach or Bowels.
All of these diseases you will soon be relieved of, by
use ot* these Bitters, as per directions on the Bottles.
This great anti-dyspeptic is the 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 tlo not hesitate
to affirm that where Dr. Rosenbaum's Stomach Bitters
ure used, a case of Fever and Ague cannot occur. It
has been analyzed by the most scientific chemists in
the Medical Faculty, and is now prescribed by nine-
tenths of the Physicians of the land. Try them—test
them—on your constitution, nnd go your way rejoicing.
Are you dyspeptic '.'—take these Stomach Bitters.
Are you bilious?—try one of these bottles and be relieved at once.
Arc you annoyed by indigestion or constipation ?—
remove the cause by a free use ofthe Bitters.
Have you fever and ague'.'—cure and prevent this
destroying disease by the free use of these Bitters.
The superiority of these Bitters hns indnccd many to
put np a spurious article. To prevent deception in
future, each cork will bc branded, "X. B. Jacoiis k Co."
And the labels will bear our own signature, without
which, none nre genuine.
Caution.— Consumers of Rosenbaum's Bitters are
cautioned against the many counterfeits now afloat in
the market, and especially against a cheap and worthless article called Roscnschfa Bitters, put up in this
by Messrs. Turner Bio.'s. with the avowed intention o!
preying on the well-earned reputation of Roscnbnuin's
Bitters, as a remedial agent in all eases of Dyspepsia
and similar diseases. The genuine Rosenbaum has our

stated, that may turn out an cncumherancc

immigrants with something more than strong

■Distance' may lend 'enchantment lo the
view ;' but Ave question very much if the position of British Columbia and - its dependencies : has this effect .on the vision-of the llo-
thcr Country—unless, indeed,  tho enchantment, like tho dreamy exhilaration  of thc
opium eater, partakes largely of the oblivious.
Were it not, in fact, for an occasional glimpse
of tho   uniform of  a Royal Engineer, we
might entertain very serious doubts as to the
British Government being cognisant of tin-
fact that an English colony exists in this pur-
tion of thc Western Hemisphere.    Scarcely a
week goes over but somo one or other of the
British colonies is brought before thc notice
of thc Government in the Parliamentary proceedings of the House of Commons, but the
name of British Columbia seems to be as effectually tabooed as a criminal sanctuary in
thc pacific Islands.    \Vhy is this ?     Docs thc
snobbishness that prevails amongst tho weak-
minded portions of society also exist amongst
enlightened statesmen '•'   Is the poor, hardworking, self-supporting colony, like the individual, to receive thc cold shoulder, and
the voluptuous, debt-contracting country, like
ils animate fac simile, to meet with every attention 1   If this bo so the sooner wc get into
debt the better, and thc sooner will two very
important objects be effected : for, every thousand pounds wc obtain in this manner from
Great Britain will not only draw the bonds
of relationship closer, and   render Brilish
Columbia less isolated, but it will, enable us in
tho first place to make the necessary preparation to receive a Brilish population, and in
tho second to obtain that population from the
British Isles.   This is tho only British colony
of importance that does not possess Emigration Commissioners in England.   Every week
vessels sail from thc Mersey and the Thames,
laden with immigrants for Australasia, Canada, and tho Capo of flood Hope, but not a
single emigrant ship has yet left fur Biilish
Columbia.     Wo must at once endeavor to
remedy this state of affairs.     "We have previously shown that wc possess greater inducements to immigration than any of these countries—the climate  itself, with  perhaps  the
exception of the Capo, is better adapted to
thc inhabitants of Great Britain.   All it requires, in fact, to place ourselves on an equal
fooling with othor colonics in the way of immigration is something like vigor on the part
of our own   Government.   Dispatches have
just been received from tho Home Government reducing the price of land, on thc warm
recommendations of His Excellency, to one
tbllar and a quarter an acre.   The announcement on Thursday, at Fort Hope, caused considerable excitement, and numbers evinced
dispositions to purchase immediately various
selections in the Shimilkomeen vallev.     The
Governor certainly deserves o\ery credit lor ] f 'f l!tuta tlie V(lncouvor lijlllllu Government hns been
lavish to a degree in trying lo build up Victoria and
induce settlement in that capital. Thc. steamboat
building over which our neighbors have been lately
making such a flourish, would have been carried on at
New Westminster instead of Victoria had the Government of liritish Columbia acted in a proper manner to
this, colony, and allowed the machinery to come in duty
free—as the Customs duties arc not a farthing benefited
by the present arrangements. This is only one of the
numerous advantages which onr bombastic 'rival' has
by ihe way only reached New Westminster a few days
ago) an article headed ■ New Westminster Rivalry,' ihe
gist of which was a very labored ntlernpt to prove the
commercial independence of Victoria of British Columbia, and the improbability of New Westminster affecting in the slightest degree the ' rapid progress' of
the capital of Vancouver Island. To style. Xew Westminster a ' village' seemed to be the easiest way to dispose of any logical difficulty in the matter ; but did it
not appear to t'.ic sagacious writer something like the
Spanish knight's attack on the windmills to cut and
slash so unmercifully at a • thriving little town' in the
jrospcelive. Surely the arrival of the two innocent
barquss with only 410 tons of merchandise,—an amount
little over what came via A'ictoria the whole two previous months, — could not have culled forth such a
wicked demonstration of drollery and invective. But
then to charge full force upon the ' baseless fabric ofa
vision,' pshaw 1 Don Quixotlc's attack if directed
against an inanimate and, consequently, undefending
object, had nt least the merit of substance ; but here's
a knight, according to bis own showing, running full
till against 'airy nothings.' Xew Westminster, we
grant, is neither a very populous nor a very lively 'city.'
and our eatankcrous and majestic • rival' lias not very
much the advantage of us iu this respect, but still in
order to indulge in a little animus, the absurdity of the
writer is carried out, and a small town with about half
its population Indians, tries to stand on its dignity, like
ti boy on possessing a first pair of trowsers, because of
the recent erection of a few small brick edifices within
its limits.
Tlie funny part of the article, paradoxical as it may
seem, is thc most serious, and tlie serious part thc most
funny. An attempt is made to throw ridicule on the
inhabitants of Xew Westminster for celebrating an
..event that produces an immediate benefit to the people,
in the saving of several thousand dollars in charges on
freight. The Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works
for attending as nu invited guest, and showing that he
bus the- welfare of Xew* Westminster at heart, is also
coarsely treated:—we do not think, However, that the
inhabitants of Xew Westminster, Col. Moody, or the
city itself, will be very seriously affected by the Colonist's
malicious ' humor.! But we now come to thc serious,
or rather what wc term tlie funny part of the article.
It is said that only 4,0 per cent, ofthe trade of Victoria
goes to Xew Westminster. Xow, even taking this
statement as correct, considering that Xew Westminster
imports almost as large an amount—in fact for several
mouths lately she has imported a larger amount—from
San Francisco, we would thus, by depriving A'ictoria
of her Xew Westminster trade, have the advantage of
20 cent, over our • brick' rival in commercial transactions. Uur contemporary, however, says :—' Say what
you will—allow Ihat a ship drawing 20 feet of water
may safely cross bar at the mouth of Eraser river, still
it is dangerous navigation, and tedious also ;' but wilh
a wisdom that ought certainly to be more frequently
followed by our contemporary the reasons why the bar
is 'dangerous navigation and tedious also' are withheld.
We arc very much afraid the writer lias abstracted a
leaf from the celebrated 'correspondence' of the London
Timet. AVo arc more inclined to this belief when wc
conic to the little excusable exaggeration that'it will
take ten days from thc time a sailing vessel leaves the
oiling of Victoria harbor bound to New AVestminstor
before she rcturus'—Certainly I "it the vessel remains
eight days In New Westminster, thus allowing two days
forgoing and returning; but wc are afraid the Interpretation our contemporary puts upon the sentence just
quoted docs not come so near the truth. The idea,
however, contained in this part of the article sufficiently
accounts for the absurdities pervading tlie whole. The
writer, while evidently under the dclusioh'thnt vessels
coining to New* Westminster must of necessity call at
Victoria, brings forward the most potent arguments
ug inst communication between the two places, and
shows the greater necessity for our having direct communication with Snn Francisco.
Thc question is asked of Xew Westminster ' If it has
any vitality, then why has it not shown itself before ?'
md is answered, to tho querist's evident satisfaction,
is follows :—'The geographical position of A'ictoria is
such that, it is the distributing point for other places
than British Columbia.' Now no oue knows better
than the editor ofthe Colonist that if New Westminster
hud not bad almost a miraculous amount ot vitality its
existence would have been settled long since through
Governmental neglect, and the fuct of so large a proportion of town lots being owned by absentees.   On the

The following communication has been forwarded to

the statement of Air. Anderson. The portion taken a.

Anderson's letter is in all probability a correct Mattfe

Tlie Cnrriboo diggings still maintain their high reputation for richness, and their vast area is being continually more aud more developed. Over and above
the auriferous wealth in the bods of tho creeks, very
rich claims of unknown extent are discovered almost
daily, ou the benches and in the banks and slides contiguous to tlicm. Notwithstanding the season was far ad-
vane.-'d when miners commenced operations on Keith-
ley's creek, yet it has been fully proved lo be equal in
the richness of its deposits, to the best mining localities
of California in its palmiest days, nnd only lucks the favorable climate and the low price of provisions in the
latter country to enable the more succosful miners al
least to do as well as tbey did there in llie ever-to-be-
reinembered limes of Ml).
After a cout'ce of about 1-1 or 15 miles, Keithley's
creek empties into lhc little Cnrriboo lake. Mostofthis
distance is ai deep kanyon, the lower portion especially.
A flat of about half a mile is still unoccupied as yet by
miners. Several claims have, however, recently been
pre-empted at the entrance of the kanyon, a short distance up which the 1'dack, Smith, Miicdoiinld k Co's
claim is located. This claim, ou the whole, lias paid
more than any oilier In the Olirrlboo district, the richest
on Harvey's creek not excepted. They commenced operations iiliout the middle of July, mid the first week's
work washing dirt brought them $12 n day lo ihe hand
from the timo the claims were taken up, besides paying
all cxpenc.es for provisions, nails, Hunting &c. Since
then il has averaged something over $00 per day lo Ihe
hand, and dill far from being worked out. This is it
crook claim, the gold being extracted from thu dirt and
base-rock in its bod. The extraordinary success ot this
company induced several other;! to take up claims above
high long before trains can get in from Lytton or Cayoosh next spring. Thc favorable nature of the lust
season's operations Will induce many to slay near the
diggings in order to be in readiness to commence '-prospecting" for thc next in good time. Those who have
money will, perhaps, fare tolernhy well, while others,
nol so favorably circumstanced in this respect, will do
wlntt they can at low water diggings "ii th ■ North Folk
of Quesnelle by thawing dirt and rocking it with hut
water. Thus they will, in all probability, linger out a
precarious .-ul sisteucc t:'l spring ngain enables them to
commence more extended operations.
1 am fully persuaded that another season will devcl-
ope more extensive diggings, as thoso creeks that arc
now partially worked, together with several others still
"unprospected," though no doubt equally as rich, have
their origin tit the'foot of a large, bare mountain in
which there are numerous quartz-veins thiitexperienecd
miners pronounce to !"■ gold-bearing, tin the eastern
siop.e of this mountain, Bear river, together with Cottonwood creek nud other streams, represented as being
i it-li, have their origin, and flowing west or BOllth-wcst
discharge themselves into the Fraser. This region is
also rich in several other species of minerals, especially
silver, lead, and iron. There are no indications of coal,
although, probably, it is to be found nearer tho Itocky
Mountain-', nnd, perhaps, at no very great distance.
Those minerals, however, cannot lie rendered available till belter, and more expeditious means of communications arc opened up ; and mercy go to prove thc
immense mineral wealth of British Colunihiiii timely
it is high time for the Government to think of sending
a few exploring parties to this far-oil', though wealthy
region, for the purpose of assisting private and individual effort in developing its vast resources. Another
important object is lo domonistrate tlie existence or nonexistence ofa nearer and more practicable route to and
from that portion of the country, lt is scarcely possible but that liiicli an extensive mineral and agricultural
region as the one in question, dues possess a more legitimate means of ingress ami egress than that of the
Frascr aud Xew Westminster on the one hand, nnd the
Columbia and tbo Dalles on the other. In my humble
opinion such un outlet will yet be discovered west or
north-west to the ocean, lf this great desideratum is
once accomplished, tho distance to the sea-board will
be diminished one-ball', and the price of.provlsioua correspondingly reduced, the inmiediate result would bc
a ten-fold Increase of the mining population in the
The weather was becoming very uncomfortable in
the Upper Country when we left. Alternate frosts and
heavy rains rendered mining anything but pleasant.
On the way down, however, the weather was all that
could be desired. After arriving at Alexander wc concluded to take a trip down the Fraser to llig Bar, as
thero aro but few kanyons of nny importance between
those places. After floating very leisurely down the
comparatively quiet Upper Fraser for several miles,
dropping some rapids and running others, we arrived
wiihin about threo miles of Big Bar. litre n more formidable rapid presented itself, but imagining that wc
could pass over it in perfect safely wo made the attempt,
which, however, came near giving us a bnth, to say the
least of it, in the turbid waters of the Frnscr, uinid fearful breakers and miniature Maalstroms. After two or
three heavy thumps, our skill'spreatl open and half tilled
with water, but fortunately wc succeeded in reaching
the eddy, by the aid of-which u landing was soon effected. Having repaired damages we proceeded to Big
I!::!', and abandoning the skiff we again shouldered our
packs and performed the itunainde, u'fthc journey to
Cayoosh on terra Jirnui.
The banks of Ihe river arc thickly dotted over with
Chinese tents for fully fifty miles abovo and below Big
Bar notwithstanding Ihcir lute iiic'cc witli the Indians al
tho mouth of Mackenzie's river.
The town of Cayoosh is much improved iu appearance since last spring, and business has been and is
quite brisk.
The steamboat arrangements on Seaton and Anderson lakes are anything but sntlsfiicl.oi'y. Passengers
leave the foot of the former lake nlitr.it noun daily, nnd
arrive at the head of the lat ler about dark ; in consequence of which they are under the necessity of travelling L'ome 12 or 15 miles over it rough trail to tho Halfway Houso. after .dark, ill order to arrive at Port Pemberton early enough to take tlie Lilloet boat at 2 o'clock

For the curt'  of Dyspepsia, Indigestion, Constipation
Loss of Appetite t.r any Bilious  Complaints
arising from a morbid action  of tlie
Stomach or Rowels.
All of these diseases you will soon be relieved of, by
use of these Hitlers, as per directions on the Rottlcs.
This great ami-dyspeptic is the result of profound and
elaborate study of one of the most celebrated physicians
of the present century, iu the accomplishment of which
he hns spent both time and money. AVe do not hesitate
to affirm that where Dr. Rosenbaum's Stomach Bitters
are used, a case of Fever and Ague cannot occur. It
has been analyzed by the most scientific chemists in
the Medical Faculty,' and is now prescribed by nine-
lenths of the Physicians of the land. Try them—test
them—ou your constitution, and go your way rejoicing.
Are 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 by a free use ofthe Bitters.
Have you fever and ngue?—cure mid prevent this
destroying disease by the free use of these Bitters.
The'superiority of'these Bitters has induced many to
put up a spurious article. To prevent deception in
future, each cork will be branded, " X. B. Jacoiis k Co."
And the labels will bear our own signature, without
which, none are genuine.
Caution.— Consumers of Rosenbaum's Bitters nre
cautioned against the many counterfeits now nfloat in
the market, and especially against a cheap and worthless article called Rosenschf's Hitters, put up in this
by Messrs. Turner Bro.'s, with the avowed intention of
preying on the well-earned reputation of Rosenbaum's
Hitters, as a remedial agent in all cases of Dyspepsia
mid similar diseases. The genuine Rosenbaum has our
name branded on each cork, and our signature 011 each

It Expels Disease I
lt is said that all productions of human skill have
their day, and are superseded by new inventions or discoveries. Xot so with this remedy. " It is not fora
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 flesh
mid fibre, like water through a porous substance,
reaches the germ or disease, such as scrofula, erysipelas,
cancer, tumor, and all eruptive and ulcerous discharges
in tho circulation, and eradicates the taint at once and
forever in this climate.
Bad Legs.
This Ointment will cure any case of Bad Leg evon if
of twenty years standing, or however hard or discolored
the tlcsbfe may be, or if swollen the size of a person's
body, provided the Ointment is well rubbed into tho
whole of the parts nffceted twice a day in large quantities, and the parts kept covered with linen rngs thickly
spread with the Ointment; from this mode of treatment,
a plentiful discharge of unhealthy humor wUl follow,
until the wounds nro all healed on the leg, or other
parts assume their natural appearance.
Old Wounds,  Sores, and Ulcers.
Tho most inveterate cases ot bad legs, scrofulous, or
other sores, are cured, if of 20 years standing, by the
joint use of the Ointment und Pills. The effect of this
unrivalled remedy upon virulent ulcers and sores, is almost miraculous. It first discharges the poison which
produces suppuration and proud flesh, and thus tho
cures which its healing properties afterwards complete,
ore safe as well as permanent. It has a wonderful effect
in the cure of sores occasioned by mosquetos, sandflies, or giggcrs.
This Ointment will cure the worst cases of Piles if
used according to the printed directions even if of 20
years standing.
Eruptions on the Skin.
Blotches, pimple.s, dry eruptious, and all irritations
of the skin, fade and disappear after a few applications
of Hollow-ay's Ointment. In these cases brisk friction
is indispensable. Many of the ordinnry eruptions aro
caused by suppressed perspiration, and as this ponetrat-
ing unguent nt once opens tho pores, and invigorates
the absorbents, it dissipates the inflammation by_ a
double process. Ladies whose faces or arms are disfigured by cutaneous diseases, may readily remove the
blemish and restore to the skin its nntnral tint, flexibility, and softness, by the use of this safe but powerful counter-irritant.
King's Evil, Fever Sores.
In cases of King's Evil where medicinal waters,
lotions, and every recipe of pharmucopceia have proved
useless, the Ointment will accomplish a thorough euro.
Fever sores heal quickly under its influence, and its
relaxing effect upon contracted sinews is truly wonderful.
Rheumatism, Scrofula, Erysipelas.
These are among the most terrible and agonizing discuses, yet in their worst forms, and when seemingly
incurable, they invariably disappear under a persevering
application of this soothing, healing antidote to pain
and inflammation.
Bulk the Ointment and Pills should be used in thefollowin
cases :—
Bud Legs.
Bad Breasts.
Btcof Mosquctocs
nnd Saud-Flics.

By the Overland Mail wc have received dates to the
17th August.
The Neapolitan Parliamentary c-Iections commenced
on titc 14th. Refugees were prefer.ed by tbe electors,
who openly declared for the annexation of Naples to
The papers publish despatches announcing thc unopposed disembarkation of Garibaldi, near Reggio, on thc
night of the 10th of August. Thc same despatch reports the- evacuation of Sicily by thc Neapolitans. Both
statements are doubtful.
Trieste, August 8.—lt is believed that Garibaldi intends to att.ict Austria, not on the Venetian, but on
the Croatian coast, by attempting a disembarkation.
The Austrian authorities beUeve that he will first endeavor to provoke revolution in Croatia and Hungary
before proceeding to Venctia. All the coasts were
watched by the Imperial cruisers.
A Paris correspondent of the Xew York Times says
Austria has now 250,000 men in Venetia.
Thc same letter says the Neapolitan Government had
decided to pospone the Parliamentary eleelion indefi-
natcly. This step which is equivalent in the eyes ofthe
Neapolitans to abrogation ofthe new Constitution, will
produce a great fermentation, and will only hasten the
crisis which the king wished to avoid.
A Naples telegram states that the Garibaldians attempted to land and were repulsed. Only 200 succeeded
in landing, and wcre pursued into the interior.
Political interest prevails in Paris on the Sicilian and
Italian questions.
Garibalda was expected to attack Venice.
Austria will maintain the conflict alone against all
Prussia will remain neutral while other powers do
not interfere.
The mate-rial at the Austrian arsenal at Venice was
being transferred to Polo. Thc steamer Veloce had entered Castellamere at midnight on the 14th, and fired
several cannon shots. Minorca ['.'] returned without
producing any result.
London. August 17.—The- Paris correspondent ofthe
Times says that the Pope has written a very melancholy
letter to the Cardinal of France. He looks upon all as
lost, and although convinced that he will die by thc
bullet of an assassin, he declares that bc will quit Rome-
under no consideration and for no price.
Constantinople, July 17.—Advices from Damascus
ofthe- loth inst. state that Fund Pasha hnd surrounded
Lebanon with troops, and threatened with the sword
the Druses and Sheiks if they did not surrender in two
days. Twenty Sheiks had already been taken, and
nearly eight huudred other important arrests made. A
thousand camels, loaded with plundered property, had
also be*;n recovered.
The" Sultan had visited the Porte and delivered his
speech to the Ministers, expressing a resolution to punish Syrian offenders severely, and also an intention of
reducing thc list of high functionaries, and of effecting
economy generally. Paper money was to remain in
circulation until July next.
The- Sultan was about to address autograph letters to
Queen Victoria and the- Emperor Xapoleon, on thc subject of Syrian affairs, in which he would express a desire to have thc sole punishment ofthe offenders. The
massacre of Paldare is confirmed, but no details arc
given as yet.
A resolution for raising £300,000 for India was agreed
to in the House of Commons.
Advices from thc west coast of Africa, via England,
state that the captain of the American bark Edwin, of
Salem, had been accused of killing some Kromem, and
attempting the lives of others. The gunboat Lochrea
was at Cape Coast, and the Commander was investigating the affair.
Gikoa, August 15.—The Grand Duchess Anne, of
Russia, sister of King Leopold, died to-dny at Berne.
Chinese advices say that Sow Chow had been sacked
and burned. The Imperial troops arc snid to have
joined the rebels.
John Wild k Sons, manufacturers of Macclesfield,
Eng., have failed for £150,000, and Secross, their London agent, for £70,000. ['.']

It has lung been a most Important desideratum In the practice
3f medicine, to ubtain a remedy similar tu this, and accordingly
we Bud It resorted to almost universally In nil those tormenting
diseases of the skin so trying to the patience, and Injurlntu tc
tbe health.    It ts a tonic, aperient, and disinfectant    !t acts
simultaneously upon llie stomacu, the ciBCULvnos, and tlio
SOWF.I.S, ami thus three processes, w blcli are ordinarily llie result
of Tnnr.r. different kinds of medicine, are carried on at tin- same
time through the Instrumentality uf this oxr remedial .'.genu
Its great merit is, that it incuts nml neutralizes the netite prln
eiple. of disease it-elf, and when that is gone, Um symptoms ne
cessarlly disappear.  The rapidity with which the patient rccov
era health and strength under this triple inllneiice Is surprising.
Lvxx COUNTY, Oregon Ter., March 11,1S5&
Messrs. A. Tt. k D. Bauds, New York: Gentlemen,—In the
Spring of ISM, while on our way from Indiana tu this place, our
eldest boy was seized With a swelling and severe pains In lha
legs, which .lay by day grew worse,Until tils legs contracted,
anil became so painful'Uml be could not walk, and we had la
carry lilm about like an infant. Wc reached Albany nn the 3d
of October, completely worn out by fatigue. Ily this time ha
was reducer] to a perfect skeleton. Here wc were enabled lo
consult » physician (Dr. Hill), who honestly confessed be could
not euro lilm, although he could give him medicine that would
relieve tho pain. In thie exigency something must bo done, or
death wits inevitable. Being recommended to try yonr Bnrsa-
parllla. I procured a buttle. After taking some, bo appeared
worse; but persevering with It, I obtained a secnntl bottle,
which seemed to grapple with the disease, nnd Caused a marker.
Improvement: Ihe swelling and pain in the legs were reduced,
his npiictlle Improved, and Ills color began to return. Thus oil-
conraged. I purchased a third buttle: wbllo taking it, the swellings in his legs broke, and some pieces nf bono one-eighth of
an inch Iiuik came out, alter which his legs straightened and
healed up. Iln Is now perfectly recovered, has no appearance
of being a cripple, Slid enn perform most kinds of common labor,
as all our neigbbois can cerUfy.   Yours, respectfully,

The dollcntc structure of the eyelid renders It peculiarly son
eltive anil liable to disease. When, front any csuse, It becomes
affected, llie inner membrane rapidly Inflames, and tbe eyelid
evinces the strongest predisposition to attract to itself biimots
from all parts of tbe body. Hundreds of persons of scrofulous
habit arc disfigured by rawness or redness of tlio eyelids, com-
monly called sore eyes, and tortured wilh apprehensions of Impaired vision, who, by using this BALSAM, may obtain almost
Immediate relief. In all cases, the earlier this remedy Is applied

Nkw Yor.K, July 15th, 1556.
Messrs. A. B. & D. SAxns: Gentlemen,—I havo been troubled
fur years with a» air.^Lej.n nf the eyelids, and have tried a num.
ber of remedies without experiencing any decided benefit A
Tew weeks since I obtained some of your ltOUAK Era V- •.:.".m,
and applied It aecnrilinc to the dlrectl'iuts. The first application
produced a decidedly beneficial effect, and I had nut used it
( i-ek, l^fnre my eyelids were entirely free frum Inflaiiiinatl ,
which had nut been the citfo before for many veara.
