THE CAPTURE OF THE TAKU FORTS.
(From The London  Times.)
Wc arc  now able to  give tlie  public the
Btory of the capture of the Taku Forts in its
full development-   Our correspondent, at will
tafag, Jami;.rg 12, 1861
Ime, L

been  a warning to the Plenip„tnni,'nr;.,o ;,. »t,-.i- .......I — -^
1., "din Dewar, and
Francisco,   ..,  will   meet   .
risk of missing tlie mail, accompany the Am.
bassadors in their pi-ogress to Tien-tsin. Wo
are therefore without moans of either confirming or contradicting the assertion made in
the telegraphic message as to what was done
at Tien-tsin ; nor have ive 11113- authentic corroboration or contradiction of the report
which was prevalent at Hongkong that it
was the intention cf Lord Elgin and Baron
Gros to proceed to Pekin as gnosts ol the Emperor, and accompanied only by an escort of
cavalry- In apolitical point of view this is
the most important part ofthe tidings which
came to us on Thursday, but it is also the
only unsatisfactory pari of that intelligence.
As wo still hope that the statement may be
found to he erroneous, we. will leave this matter as stiII in doubt, and pass on to the more
grateful task of pointing attention to the success with which the .military operations have
been performed, and to the gallantry with
which our countrymen have so signally retrieved the honor of our arms in China.
The conquest of these forts was as dashin"
a little campaign of eight days as English and
French soldiers and sailors can hope to see in
the land of Cathay.    When they  had  established themselves at Pel,twig they had still a I
march of twelve miles before they could arrive
nt the object ot their attack.    According toall
previous experience,  it would have  been expected that tho road would be open,  that the
Chinamen would trust, as usual, to precedent,
and  would await the advance of  their enemies from the sea and the mouth ofthe river
which the forts defended.    Jiut even the Chinamen  have  been   beaten  into some knowledge  of thc art of war-    It has   been   found
that positions upon the road between pebtang
and Peiho had been taken up with considerable military skill, and had been fortified with
"care; a Tartar camp bad been  formed, unci
the best troops which China can produce had
been placed lehind the works and within the
intrenched encampment,    The advance along
this   route was made against tm enemy who
in desperate courage seems scarcely   to  have
been inferior even to his assaib'nts, and if he
had  been armed with thc same weapons as
wero  brought  against him, instead  of with
gingalls, matchlocks, and bows and  arrows,
the contest might have been deemed   worthy
to stund  side   by side in story  with  famous
European battles.    But the Armstrong  guns
rent  the works and their shells burst  with
deadly effect in the midst of their defenders j
the concentration which is the result and the
object of European Strategy turned tho odds
even  of numbers against them, and  in  two
days the road had been cleared, and the expeditionary force, housed at Sinho and at Tang-
k,o\v, awaited the stores and heavy artillery
which   wcre  to reduce the great forts from
which we had suffered our repulse.
In these operations thc English and French
acted together with harmony and with equal
gallantry.    In  the attack on the  intrenched
camp  the  first fort fell to the  English, who
wero so fortunate as to be in about ten  minutes before tho French had mado their entry
on  their side of attack,    Lieutenant Shaw
being the first man in.   Tho French  Commander, however, according to the   military
custom of the French service, promoted upon
the spot Colonel Schmidt/, tho first Frenchman
who entered! and, as this is not our custom,
We note tho fact as an advantage which tho
French rule gives to the ollieers when engaged
in combined operations.    Being thus  in  possession ofthe fortified village of Sinho and of
the site of tho intrenched Tartar camp, sir
Hope Grant found himself within half a mile
of that great North Fort, which appeared to
he the.key of tho whole position.   Hero somo
difference of opinion is said to havo occurred
between  the two Generals.   Sir Hope Grant
thought an attack upon tho Northern Fort immediately bo.oro him very practicable, and
that its possession would be decisis c of the
I fortune of the others ; General Montutiban doubted this,
but eventually agreed to send his forces to  the attack,
protesting however, ngninst sharing the  responsibility
<jf the  plan of operations.    Sir Hope  Grant was  prudently resolute, and on the morning ofthe 21st the  at-
ll|ck was made, four English and four French gunboats
■diverting thc attention of the forts lower down on the
northern bank.    When the batteries opened tho execution of the  Armstrong guns was found to he  tremen-
<-°<is.   As their shells  pierced  tbe  walls  and   burst
Within the fort awful explosions shook the ground j hut
amid the ruins, the gallant Tartars stood to their guns,
and as tho field-pieces advanced to complete the  work,
a*id as  the riflemen  scattered  themselves under the
*a"s, the firo from the fort was still hot,  and many  a
daring fellow was  struck hy the rude missiles  which
•ell among them.    It was here and in the assault which
*J°w took place thnt much of our I06S was suffered, and
needs  of hcroibm  are recorded by  our correspondent
which we hope may be sead and remembered  by those
who have tho  powei  to reward them.   The rac.  be-

&l'en at   last the obstinate resistance of these Tartars
"is overcome only by an escalade.    Thc lesson,  bow-

parties.    Tbe result entirely justified Sir Hope Grant's
Judgment.   The other ions were,  after some of thc

C.-T.H CotrtCTT, Oregon Tcr., March 11,1655.
Messrs. A. B. (t D. 8akm, New Tork: Gentlemen.-—In the
spring of 1853, while on our way from Indiana to this place, oar
eldest boy was seized with a swelling and severe pains In tho
legs, which day by day grew worse, until bis legs contracted,
and became so painfu, that he could not walk, and we hnd ts
carry him about like an Infant. Vi'e reached Albany on the 3d
of October, completely worn out I y <:ttgue. By ill is time ho
was reduced to a perfect skeleton. Here we w-ere enabled to
consult a physician (Dr. Hill), who honestly confessed lie coold
not cure him, although he could give him medicine thai would
relieve the pain. In this exigency something must he done, or
death was Inevitable. Being recommended to try your Sarsa-
imrilln. I procured a bottle. After taking some, he appeared
worse: bnt persevering with It, I obtained a second t>otl,i-
which seemed to grapple will, the disease, and caused a marked
Improvement: lbe swelling and pain in the legs were reduced,
bis appetite Unproved, and his color began to return. Thus en-
enrsged, 1 purchased a third bottle; wbito takiag it, the swellings In hit legs broke, and some pieces ot bone one-eighth of
an inch l,„i_. came out, alter which bis legs straightened and
healed up. Hfl Is now perfectly recovered, has no appearance
el' being a cripple', and can perform most kinds of common labor,
as all our neighbois can certify.   Yours, respectfully,

THE BLESSING OF HEALTH
by
HOLLOWAY'S     PILLS.
Why arc Diseases so Fatal in Tropical Climates ?
Merely because wc prescribe for their effect, instead
of their cause, nnd try to relieve symptoms instead of
Hiking at their root. The action of these Pills is precisely the reverse. They expel from the secretive organs nnd the circulation tbe 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
Pills annihilate the disorder.
Ill Health in Hot Countries.
Frequently arises from  nervous  disorders affecting
the action of the heart and deranjiinDrthc whole ani.
s^sumi uowcwi- uerangeu, ana cringTntcSTaeamf ana
spirits when all other medicine has failed.
Bilious and Liver Complaints.
Frequently lead to the worst phases of human suffering, yet how many In the East and WcBt Indies, and
most of our Foreign Possessions, are thus afflicted, unknowing the means of cure placed within their grasp;
such should take ft few boxes of these Pills according
to the directions given in th» books, aud their ailments
will quickly leave them.
Dropsical Swellings and Turn of Life.
This is a most disastrous period in woman's history,
it destroys thousands, the whole of the gross humors
collect together, and like a tide sweep away health and
life itself, if not timely and powerfully checked. The
most certain remedy for all these dangerous symptoms
is Ilollowuy's Pills. Armed with this great antidote,
the fiery ordeal is passed through, nnd the sufferer is
once more restored to the possession of unimpaired
health. These Pills are equally efficacious in all female complaints, nud obstructions at the dawn of
womanhood.
Stomach and Liver Complaints.
TheBe are complaints of the million, particularly of
those in warm latitudes ; few escape them; end, if
neglected, tbey lead to innumerable dangerous maladies
But why neglect them when Holloway's PUIb will eradicate them iib certainly as water extinguishes fire'i
They relieve the boweh, purify the fluids, and invigorate the system and the constitution at the siine tFhi*.
They are admitted by virtue of special decrees into the
dominions of despotism, nnd thus hare become a great
household remedy.
Dysentery and Bowel Complaints.
These famous Pills should be taken once or twice a
week by all classes in this purt of the world, by which
means, none need fear the attacks of these direful
scourges.
A Word lo Female*.
Tlie local debility and irregularities which are tha
special annoyance of the weaker sex^ nnd which, when
neglected, always shortens life, nre relieved for the
time being and prevented for the timo to come, by »
course of this mild but thorough alterative.
Holloway's I'M* are the best remedy known tit the teorld
for the following diseases:—

beautiful   pastime; but when the woik is almost completed—when  everything is accomplished but the  last

that the idea of a Convention in some shape was very
popular, it was resolved that the cry should be got up
and kept up, that any one who spoke against any part
of the programme thus prepared, should be at once
branded as belonging to an envious clique who hud
come tothe meeting on purpose to brc.k up the whole

whole, elections and all should be rushed through at

NEW  WESTMINSTER,   SATURDAY,  JANUARY  12
As lho now Land Proclainatlori haB not yet
mado its appearance-, we would wish to draw
the attention of Government to a few defects
which exist under our present land system,
and which seem to be a general source of dis-
content to  the poop],, 0f British Columbia.
It  was only yesterday that a  petition was
gotten up by tho inhabitants of New West-
minster to his Excellency, praying for a postponement of the sale of rural lands mentioned
in our advertising columns.     The evil of the
auction system lias been  so  severely felt  in
every country in which  it   has existed, that
we arc really astonished how   it  can   be  retained   a singlo day in the colony of British
Columbia,    Not  only  in   the  first  instance
does it give the speculator  an   undue advantage over the  min with ordinary means and
bona fide intention of settling, but, providing
the land be offered and  not  disposed  of by
public sale, it affords him an opportunity of
purchasing the whole amount so remaining
at the upset price.   This has a most mischiev-
otw tendency in concentrating ii. the hands of
a class of men, who never  intend becoming
actual settlers, so large a portion of the agri-
eulttmi. lands of the colony.     Especially is
this tho  ctu-o  in  districts  where the  really
good land is limited  to  a small  area-   No
larger amount than  one   hundred  and sixty
acres should bc sold to any man direct .rom
the crown.    The  government arc  no  moro
than thc custodians of tho land for thc people,
and tho moral crime is just as great in making an extravagant use  of tho  trust as   a
willful wasteful expenditure of the proceeds.
Wo hope the Government instead of spending
time in drawing up an elaborate Proclamation
will simply apply the land system at present
in vogue in the United States.   No scheme tor
the settlement of an agricultural population
can equal it-    It has stood tho test of years,
and the wisdom of its founders is a greater
source of admiration  to-day than when tho
Subject met its first practical test-   The establishment ot a land office is a question which
every  day  becomes  moro   imperative.     To
facilitate the newly-arrived immigrant in obtaining land should be one of the first duties
of government.   The present sehomo is a fertile source of discontent, and thc sooner it is
changed the better.   Let us have as much as
possible of the a.ailablo land of the colony
Burvoyed at once, and let the system of • free
selection ' take the place of « public auction ■
and wo guarantee thut  before long we shall
have a populous agricultural  community in
the colony, that for prosperity and happiness
it will bo difficult to lind it* equal.
him a voice in tho making of the laws. But matters
iffecting the general nnd perhaps the national interests
of the country arc very different, and the British subject alone is entitled'to the right of regulating them.
A convention, therefore, should have been elected entirely by British subjects—in the same manner us a
gen .ml Legislature. There could have then been no ex-
uie for treating itwith neglect, and any recommendations
irom such a body would have been listened to with
respect. It would also have been, we believe, the immediate  forerunner of representative government.    Ai

CLERGVMN AND POLITICS.
To thc Editor ofie New Westminster Times.
Sin,—Will you allv mc to assure you and your
readers, that so far fun feeling any disposition to
J'anathematize'' yoifor the remarks in your last
issue, on the subjectndicuted above, I om of opinion
that, if we were to exhange thoughts freely, however
much we might tlifr about other matters, on this
point we should veryiearly agree.
I no not consider tat my profession dcpriies mo of
the right to speak an,vote'on nil great quc.-tions affecting the civil as wil as the religious interests of my
country, any more thn it prevented the prophet Daniel
from being Prime Jinistcr iu the ancieiil kingdom of
Babylon.
It you ccme to t.Kground of expediency, then I say
a Pastor should alwivs remain in a position so that iii
case party strife is .-ought into his own congregation
he can mediate and ' make peace." On this ground,
although I havo pussd through a good many exciting
Municipal nud Parliamentary election:, during the 1 ist
15 years, I have novel voted at ono of them, nor was it
known, except in o few instances, to which side
I leaned.
The meeting (of wiicb I must say you gave a very
partial report in yo^r last paper).I understood to be
called for the purposo of discussing great principles affecting the weal of this young colony ; in which it wns
the duty of every patriot to take a part. However, I
had no Inclination to do so until about the lime the mect-
and the subscriber who pays $3.50 for all this, may feel
pretty confident the Association will not get rich too
fast." The name of Messrs. 11. II. Bancroft & Co., Booksellers, Sin Francisco, being connected with thc enterprise, as General Agents for the Pacific Coast, is enough
to suti-ly ns ns to the character of the Association.
The Association has been in existence six years, su<-
tainiug a higher reputation each year. The Engl, v'.ug
now brought out for the subscribers of the Seventh
year is entitled " Fnlstnff Mustering his Recruits.'1
(Shnkspenre Second Part Henry IV.. Act III., Scene II.)

Evui.A-ti, ani) Napoleon.—The European Times ol
the 27th October says: •■ The Emperor Napoleon is an
object of great suspicion with the crowned heads of
Europe, and thc recent visit to Windsor Oastlo of the
Grand Duke Michael an 1 the Grand Duchess Olgu, of
Russia, is said to have a political significance—the
more especially as Lords John Russell and Palmerstoti
were present at the time. We fear that the estrangement between our Court and that of Prance is more
marked now than it has been dining the last eight or
nine years—greater, in fact, than at any time since
Napoleon assumed the purple. The Queen, it is well
known, has been largely iiiullenced in her recent estimate of this remarkable person by the views of her
German relatives, and the whole group of continental
Sovereigns connected with what are called the ' Great
Power..' hold him in constant dread. The ton . of the
French ministerial press has undergone a marked
change with respect to England, and is much less favorable to us than formerly, but Ihe press of this country regards his general policy with a less jaundiced eye
than before. The dread of an invasion, too, has gradually died out, and it is only partially revived when the
newspapers are discussing the relative merits of wooden
and iron-built ships of war. Perhaps tho growth of
ihe Volunteer movement may have brought about this
result, and other causes also have contributed to allay
the panic, and amongst them the policy of non-intervention in the affairs of Italy which France has observed and England respected. The Queen's Russian
visitors are pretty accural, ly informed, no doubt, ofthe
course of policy which follows the conferences at Warsaw. Both Lord Palmerstoti and the Foreign Secretary
will find it difficult to reconcile the views which prevail
in Windsor Castle respecting Napoleon with those of the
the nation at large. In the present temper of the British people, nothing would boi more unpopular thnn a
rupture with Franco to prop up Austria, hut wo have
no fear of such a result.

I THE NEW   WESTMINSTER    TIMES
I
SENT TO HEAVEN.
I had a message to send ber,
To her whom my soul loved best;
But I bad my task to finish,
And she had gone home to rest.
To rest in the far bright heaven—
Oh, so far away from here ;
It was vain to speak to my darling,
For I knew she could not hear.
I had a message to send her,
So tender, and true, and sweet;
I longed for an angel to bear it,
And lay it down at her feet.
I placed it one summer evening
On a little white cloud's breast;
Bul it faded in golden splendor,
And died in the crimson west.
I-gave ii the lark next morning,
And I watched it soar and soar;
But its pinions grew faint and weary.
And it fluttered to earth once more.
To the heart of a r«_ie I told it;
A-nd the perfume, sweet and rare,
©rowing f.iinl on the blue bright ether,
Wtto loat oil the balmy  air.
I laid il upon a censer,
And I saw the incense rise ;
But. its clouds of rolling s'lv er
Could not reach the far blue skies.
I cried in my passionate longing:
" Has the earth no angel friend
Who will carry my love the message
That my heart desires to send?"
Then I heard a strain jf music,
So mighty, so pure, so clear,
That my very sorrow was silent,
And my heart stood still to hear.
And I felt in my soul's dee]) yearning
At last the sure answer Btir—
''The music will go up to heaven,
And carry my thoughts to her."
It rose in harmonious rushing
Of mingled voices and strings,
And I tenderly laid my message
On the music's outspread'wings.,
I heard it float farther and farther,
In sound more perfect than speech ;—
Farther than sight can follow,—
Farther than soul can reach.
tViid I know that nt Inst my message
Hns passed through the golden gate ;'
So my heart is no longer restless,
And   I am content to wait..
—Cornltill ifag.
MISCELLANEOUS.
The Ars-Strong (Tun.—Wc copy the following paragraph from a recent article in the London Times
ot. the great success of the Armstrong Gun in China ;—
To reach the Tartar intrenchmcirts it wns necessary to
cross five miles of sonic of the worst ground imaginable
—all ruts, trenches, mud, marsh, and slush. The
country, in fact, was in such a condition that to pet
the ammunition waggons over it was found impossible,
and they were left behind, but so resolute were the artillerymen to get up their guns that, in the end, and by
thc force of men's arms, they were brought to the front.
Here Captain Milward instituted a careful, and, as we
-May well conceive, an anxious examination into the
condition ofthe pieces nfter such unexpected roughing.
when, to the surprise no less than the delight of a'l,
they were found to be absolutely uninjured. Not thc
slightest mischief and been done. Every sight, every
screw, every pin was as perfect as when the trims wcre
first embarked, eo tbnt'tlie point of "practicability"
was settled for ever. The Armstrong gun could stand
as much knocking about as the clumsiest old O-pounder
ever sent on service, and if its execution did but correspond to the programme the success would bc complete.
On this point also proof was soon forthcoming. The
first shot of nil, and that only, was a failure. The elevation ofthe piece, which was directed against a body
of Tartar Cavalry, was too great, and the shell whizzed
innocently over the enemy's squadrons. A minute sufficed to rectify the mistake, and the second shell
plumped right among the Mantchoo horsemen. Thnt
was the range. " Three degrees," shouted the Captain,
and those two words brought every gun upon the mark.
Not another shot, or shell was lost, and thc Tartars,
after a stand which, considering the tremendous character ofthe attack, did signal credit to their courage,
took to flight in dismay. Against earthworks the success of the gun was tho same. Our correspondent, who
id will be remembered, had specially reserved his opin-
1 ion upon these guns until the test of action had been
applied, entered the evacuated entrenchments, and
traced' the course of these projectiles through the in-
.renchments and along the ground. They had ploughed
np the sides ofthe embrasures, dismounted the cannon,
ripped open the guns themselves, nnd blown the unfor.
tunate gunners into undistinguishable fragments. Thc
effects, iml'eed of the Armstrong shell exceed anything
that hnd been predicted ofits destructivene.s. This
dreadful missile is " built up in sections which must
burst into 40 angular pieces, exclusive of the top and
tenden casing." Thc result does, indeed, seem to be
infallible. In the track of one of these projectiles out-
correspondent actually picked up 30 of the pieces composing it, nnd he unhesitatingly states that " no troops
could stand in the open" against missiles of such
power and range.
The French Navt.—We stated last week that we
had heard, upon good authority, that the French Emperor had ordered thc cous'ruction ofn number of iron-
eased gunboats. Wc now learn that it is resolved to
build 150 of these vessels by private contract, after the
mcxlcl ot the gunboat designed by the Emperor al Bordeaux, each to be armed with a powerful rifled gun.
A letter from Toulon, received in Paris, states thnt, in
addition to the six iron-plated ships now building, ten
more are ordered to be laid down with all despatch—
riz., two at Toulon, two at Brest, two at Rochfort, two
at Lorient, and two at Cherbourg, this, if confirmed,
will prove that a smart race is cut out for us, and
jt will undoubted}' be our own fault if wc allow
ourselves to bc beaten.—Army and Navy Gazette.
A Chinaman's Opinion of the War.—The following
is an extract from an officer serving with the expedition
to China;—Thus ends the China war ot 1860, for they
say they will fight no more since we have beaten them
in their strongholds. Or.e chief—a Chinaman, not a
Tartar,—said he was delighted at his country being
thrown open ; that we had now seen they could fight,
and that hereafter, when they shall have had the advantage of more intercourse with foreign nations, we
shall find the difference by their beating us ! A very
jointed way of putting it.
Daguerreotype by L-ghtnino.—On the I6th of August last, a flash of lightning struck a windmill nt Lap-
pion in France, in which there was a female, who was
killed by the electric fluid, and on whose body there
was left the picture ofa neighboring tree, with all its
branches nnd leaves complete. This singular tattooing
was seen and attested by medical examiners and municipal authorities ofthe place.
Case of Conscience.—A few weeks since, a bog,
containing upwards of six hundred guineas, was lefl lithe house of an aged lady, residing near Nottijig Hill,
London, with a letter stating that some party, constrained by conscience, returned the money, which was
part of a sum plundered from the family 02 years
before, promising, also, that the whole should be shortly
restored. The robbery was committed in Londonderry,
Ireland, and the lady's father, from whom the money
was stolen, died more than fifty years ago.
General Todelben is at Sebastopol, the fortifications of which, on tho north side, are undergoing extensive repairs.

their day, and are superseded by new inventions or discoveries. Not so wilh this remedy, "it is not font
day, but for all time, and in all countries." And Why?
Because it strikes nt the generic root of all diseases in
lhc blood, and medical art can accomplish nothing beyond that. The Ointment, penetrating through flesh
and fibre, like waler through a porous substance,
reaches the germ or disease, such as scrofula, erysipelas,
cancer, 'iimor, and all eruptive and ulcerous discharges
in the circulation, and eradicates the taint tit once and
forever in this climate.
Bad Legs.
This Ointment will cure any case of Bad Leg even if
of twenty years standing, or however hard or discolored
the iiesh may be, or ii' swollen thc size of a person's
body, provided the Ointment is well rubbed into the
whole of the parts affected twice a day in large quantities, and the parts kept covered with linen rags thickly
spread with the Ointment; from this mode of treatment,
n plentiful discharge of unhealthy humor will follow.
until the wounds are al! healed on the leg, or other
parts assume their natural appearance.
Old XX'ounds, Sores, and Ulcers.
The most-inveterate cases of bad legs, scrofulous, or
other sores, are cured, if of 20 years standing, by the
joint use of the Ointment and Pills. The effect of this
unrivalled remedy upon virulent ulcers and sores, is almost miraculous. It first discharges the poison which
produces suppuration and proud flesh, and thus the
cures which its healing properties afterwards complete,
are safe as well as permanent. It has a wonderful effect
in the cure of sores occasioned by mosquetos, sandflies, or giggers.
Piles.
This Ointment will cure the worst cases of Piles If
used according to thc printed directions even if of 20
years standing.
Eruptions on thc Skin.
Blotches, pimples, dry eruptions, and nil irritations
Of the skin, fade and disappear after a few applications
of Holloway's Ointment, in these cases brisk friction
is indispensable. Many of the ordinary eruptions are
caused by suppressed perspiration, and as this penetrating unguent at once opens the pores, and invigorates
the absorbents, it dissipates the inflammation by a
double process. Ladies whose faces or arms arc disfigured by cutaneous diseases, may readily remove the
blemish and restore to thc skin its natural tint, flexibility, nnd 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 pharmacopoeia have proved
useless, the Ointment will accomplish a thorough cure.
Fever sores heal quickly under its influence, and its
relaxing effect upon contracted sinews is truly wonderful.
Rheumatism, Scrofula, Erysipelas.
These are among the mostterrlble und agonizing diseases, 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.
Both the Ointment and Pills should be used in the following
cascs :—
Bad Legs. (Contracted   and

A Subscription has been open at Naples, with a view
of presenting a sword of honor to General Garibaldi.
On one side will be represented the victories of the
General iu 1859, and on the other his triumphs in the
kingdom of the Two Sicilies. The arms of Naples and
of Sicily will be engraved in gold on the pommel, which
will represent a bond breaking the chains of Italy.
Brilliants, emeralds, and rubies will be so arranged
upon it ns to represent the three Italian colors. "To
the Captain whom all Italy honors,'* is to bc the inscription.
Ir is announced that the Egyptian Government in.
tend to carry thc railway from Suez along the African
shore ofthe Red Sea as far as a point which would bc
within a short steaming distance of Aden. The overland journey to India will be shortened hy five days,
the danger ofthe Red Sea navigation avoided, passengers will escape the worst part of the voyage, ajd the
Peninsular and Oriental Company will save the great
cost entailed by necessity for a very large coal depot at
Suez.
An Aerial Railway over London.—Mr. Barlow,
O. E., has put forward a suggestion for relieving the
traffic ill the streets of London, by constructing aerial
railways over thc houses, as well as tunnels under,
neiith. The author contends thai the plan, adopting
tlie suspension girder principle, with spans of 1,000
feet, can be carried out with less interl'erene with house
property than by either of thc other schemes, and
Ihat such a viaduct of ample strength will not exceed
£150,000 per mile, He proposes two main communications from south to north, the first commencing at
the Elephant and Castle, and terminating near the
Sboreditch Station of the Eastern comities Railway
and the sic ind from west to east, commencing at the
junction of Oxford-street and Tottenham court Road,
and terminating at Whitechapel.
The Fear of an* Autocrat.—The Paris correspondent of the London Times alludes to the constant fear
of his life in which the Emperor of tbe French lives
from the Carbonari. During his late trip to his
now dominions every care was taken to get suspicious
characters out ofthe way. One very curious means of
insuring his safety was resorted to ; it was that of forcing the owners of houses within a certain distance of
the Imperial residence to give up the keys of their cellars to the police. These individuals were forced, during the whole visit, and for some days before, to ask
for their keys every time they needed a bottle of wine ;
and on such occasions a policeman was sent with them
to fetch it. A certain place in the Place Victoire, in
Nice, was emptied of all its inhabitants while the Imperial visit lasted ; nobody knew for precisely what reason ; but the proprietors, for vacating it, received from
tho authorities the sum of 60,000 francs ; the houses,
it is supposed, having been in some way useful to the
police.
The Choctaw Nation seems to be a model community.
All lands, it is said', are held in common, and each Indian, or those connected with him by affinity or consanguinity, settles downs nnd no one is allowed to
come nearer than l of iv mile of this enclosure ; and that
is his claim,, no-one enn touch him, and he is protected
in his possesion by the laws ofthe nation, as though it
were his fee simple. Merchants, mechanics, professional men. machinists, kc, arc allowed to live thereby permit from the Council, but no one is allowed to
produce any more than is necessary for the use of him.
self and his family outside of his trade or profession.
Not a drop of spirituous liquors is allowed to be given
away, or transported through the nation ; and all that
is found by the' ollicer is poured out, and if found in any
wagon, watc-r-cralt, or on horseback, the whole estab.
lislinicnt is confiscated to the use ofthe Nation.

Stomach or Bowels.
All of these diseases you will soon be relieved of, I,t
use of these Bitters, as per directions on the Bottles.
This great anti-dyspeptic is the result of profound nnd
elaborate Studv of one of tho mo it c.nlBhratid phyiiri»»>
ofthe present century, in the accomplishment of which
he has spent both time and money. We do not bcsitnle
to affirm that where Dr. Rosenbaum's Stomach Bitten
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-
tenths of the Physicians of the land. Try tlicm—test
them—on your constitution, and go your way rejoicing,
Are you dyspeptic ?—take these Stomach Bitters.
Arc you bilious ?—try one of these bottles and be re-
lieved at once.
Are 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 hy the free use of these Bitters.
The superiority of these Bilters has induced many to
put up a spurious article. To prevent deception in
future, each cork will be branded, " N. B. Jacous ACo."
And the labels will bear our own signature, without
which, none are genuine.
Caution.— Consumers of Rosenbaum's Bitters are
cautioned against the many counterfeits now afloat if
thc market, and especially against a cheap nnd worthless article called Rosenschfs Bilters, put up in diii
by Messrs. Turner Bro.'s, with the avowed intention ol
preying on the well-earned reputation of Rosenbaum's
Bitters, as a remedial agent in all cases of Dyspepsia
and similar diseases. The genuine Rosenbaum bus our
name branded on each cork, and our signature on c»cb
label.
