{From the London Times.)
Tho only visible thing tliatis consistent with
lie almanac this season, and even that.atone
(timo was deviating into groat inconsistency, is
t in' I rouse of Commons.   When wc take up our
Mia],or  and   read "August''on the page,   and
tin- descending rain and feel the  nipping
,,-iinls, and look wistfully at the cold fireplace,
i. difficult to believo that tho pi-intei- has
I j,ni  mauo  somo glaring mistake.    Let   us,
however, turn over to the long columns  of
[Parliamentary  debate-    Wo can always  tell
j].-,' tho tone which we there find what time of
: i • year it is.    They oblige us to give up our
doubts, and  own that, after all, it must  be
[Inn'  that  wo are in the second week of our
autumnal month.    The season is a little late
even in the House of Commons, but thero tiro
all the usual symptoms of autumn there.    We

usual short,   sharp  battles,   iii
, li.obt, upon  adjournments of
Houso ceased somo timo ago; business is
through  with a decent, and  sometimes
even an indecent, speed-
■witli oven an indecent, speed-   Every night
point-thing is now cleared off which has   been
■ landing about till the  -Session,  encumbered
■with a hopeless mass of amendments.   Among
Ittber achiovomcn'.s of this character, perhaj s
■tin' most notable was that which occurred on
■Tuesday night, when the   European   Forces
Diill was in one sitting  debated, read a third
iho, and passed.
lie  sincerely  congratulate  the  House  of
ominous upon havinig got this Bill clean out
if their House,    while it remained there no
ne could predict what chance he had of ever
11ing away; but since that is worked  off
ivory jaded member ma}* look forward with
inine confidence to a holyday-    It is pleasant
0 glance back upon perils escaped; and now
hat we know that it did not end in an ad-
iirunient we can read withsome complacency
even   the  hist  discussion upon   this terrible
bill-    It   makes  one smile   to  observe   how
Constant the old names are in their old places.
k\v Henry Willoughby still complains on lohalf
those  neglected   notables  of the   Indian
'iiuncil.   sit- T- Colebrooko is once more garrulous in favor of the European  mutineers,
lir J. Elphinstono takes an opportunity of in-
t'oduciug Mr. Wilson and his Income-tax by
|vav  of a slight variation of the prescriptive
ijiics-    Sir Do Lacy Evans discusses the l.oti-
al Artillery and tbe sentiments ot the Duke
Wellington ; and ilr- Horsman tells an anec-
lotc about tt Commander-in-Chief being sworn
ii at the liielia-hoitse who was so infirm that
c could  not rise to return  thanks for thc
onor that had been conferred upon him, and
1 another who was so blind that he would

L'ctur-     lint- how diflerent were all  those
leeches from all that had gone before upon
lie  same subject I    One roads them with nl-
ist a sense of enjoyment—not, indeed, from
Iny  intrinsic  merit th-*y havo, but from  the
lelcome  conviction that they are tho last of
Heir Kind-    These worthy knights and baron-
have no longer any amendments in their
j.kt'ls.    This time it is only blank cartridge
ley  are firing'    '"sir J- Elphinstono does  not
|tend even to divide against the third realtor the Bill-   Even Mr Uorsman  rises only
enter his final protest," and wo gladly
impromiso with him for an hour of protost-
g    Tho lire from till those Indian officers
••enihles, indeed, rather a "feu de joie" than
hostile volley; tliov arc so delighted at Imv-
g achieved  tlie  addition  to  the i-ill of a
luso declaring that the House intended to
ko from the local officers of India, whether
Hilary or naval, none ot tho rights and pri-
leges which they at present enjoy, butguar-
deed   to  them their present pay, pensions,
"1 allowances, with thoir old advantages in
'"'notions.   We do not wonder that this con-
ssion by tbo Government has very much
"Hied, although it has not eiitir.'ly satisfied,
o ruffled tempers of theso Indian M.  P's.   It
us always professed by the Govornmont that
eve was no intention of interfering with the
'vantages which any Indian officer had pre-
ously enjoyed.    But- this formal guarantee,
"■eh is not tjr-iWo.y _*dbe56n.3"3i.tt>ar™S!_rjg--'
practico, will probably give the object8 ot it
vantages,  and will certainly give them se-
>.iy, "which  thoy never could have had il
is Hill had nol passed,    By  this oompro-
iso and this expense w° have now got rid
ever of those weary weighings of conflict-
! testimonies, of those apologies for Euro-
l" mutineers, and those fierco defences of
Hilary sinecures and Staff pluralities with
Inch  wo wero so long afflicted-   Of course,
''whole thins at last resolved itself into a
under thc Horse Guards?" and he is answered
by the Indian Minister, "Certainly not." The
native army is to be officered from the staff
corps, which is to be entirely selected by the
Indian Government.   The  Governor General
selects the officers appointed to tho command
ofthe expedition to India, and the same power
in  all respects will remain with him under
tbis Bill.   We are not very likely to  advocate
any measure which would have the cficct  of
tin-owing additional patronage into the hands
of the IIor.se Guards, and  wo should not have advocated this amalgamation, or argued so strenuously for
the unity  of our  British  Army, if we hnd  not been
quite satisfied that the   Government scheme tended
rather to reduce military patronage to thc narrowest
possible Bphere, and to <rive the widest scope to competition.   This Bill may now be considered passed.   Lord
Derby hns intimated in the f.ortls his intention of facilitating its progress through that House, and although
it is in reality but nn indirect Parliamentary recognition of n scheme which  it lay within the  Royal prerogative to carry out, still it must be considered ns one
o:' the most important At-ts of a barren Session.   There
is n  great  deal, however, still to be done,     lt cannot
he expected that  immediately we  have swept away all
those  crying ahuses the  new  system will  come into
opeiation in sudden  perfection, nud will work in nn
oily nml satisfactory manner.    The Government has judiciously refrained from placing before the House  of
Commons all the minute details of the scheme they have
formed for creating a thoroughly good military service
for India.   Special knowledge will still he required, the
language of India must still be studied by those  who
are  to  conduct operations in that great  dependency,
and, although the liritish Army will henceforth be  one
and indivisible, such  arrangements' must be made as
will allure a sufficient number of our young officers to
choose for themselves an Indian career, ami to  apply
themselves to those studies which alone can fit them to
run  that career with credit.    For the present this  part
of the service will he supplied by the officers who have
served in the Company's Service, nntl all accounts from
India show that those officers are fully alive to the advantages that are opening to them, and very zealous to
seize them.    Now that we have put the Army of India
upon a sound footing, we may next Session go on to do
ns much  for the Civil Service, ami also to  reorganize
the whole system of Indian judicature, from the Sudder
Ailawlut itself dowu to the  kut.hcrry of the smallest
unlive judge.

THEY were awarded Two Premiums at the State
Fair ! One for machine sewing, and the only Premium
for Fancy Quilting and Embroidery.
These machines sew from two spools, as purchased
from thc store, requiring no re-winding of thread, and
finishing each scam by their own operation, without
recourse to the hand needle, as is required by other
machines. On account of their simplicity, durability,
ease of management, aud adaptation to all varieties of
family sewing, they execute cither heavy or fine work
with equal facility, and without special adjustment.
The new machines introduced by thc Grover k Baker
Sewiiig-Machiue Company, are of elegant finish, and
their operation is rapid and very quiet. The ease with
which they can be managed is a distinguishing feature,
and the stitch is the strongest, handsomest, and most

inti-t it assume-, to fancy British Columbia like some
awe-stricken, helpless school boy kneeling tremblingly
before the mighty • we' of the- Colonist and asking will

(Hi thrice happy British Columbia ! what a future is
in store for you—:to enjoy thc free port system as well
as Vancouver Island.' To have your fertile valleys and
arable plains retained as pasture ground fur thc deer
and elk—to import everything you use or consume—
from the timber for building your boats atvl bouses, to
the feed for supplying your cattle—from your potatoes
and cabbng.s, to  vour flour and oat-meal.     What a
>Vc might ..arch thu world over.
pito all thc hard names that have at different
times been hurled at British Columbia, in
vain disc-over a country more prosperous in
its financial condition than this colony. After paying our Government officials, and the
current year's expenses for public works, we
shah have, before.- the last day of "eeeinber. a
surplus of some twelve thousand or thirteen
thoiis-.it'' pounds—or about one-fourth thc entire revenue. Now, however much this fact
will be a source of congratulation to the inhabitants of this colony, the result will be far
from satisfactory, unless seme efforts be made
at once on the part of Government to expend
tho balance on works of utility before the
year expires. If this be not done we .hall
in all probability have thc disagreeable consciousness of thc Home Government with its
paternal hands scraping the money into its
own coffers. There are many not only legitimate but absolutely essential schemes for Unemployment of this portion of the public
money, and which would redound immensely
to the benefit of the colony. We shall confine ourselves at present to the desirability of
establishing a Light-ship at the entrance to
Frascr river. It is only a few days ago that
the new buoy on the North Sand Head disappeared, since Capt. Richards laid the
buoys down in the fir.it place, about a year ,
ago, the one on this pot-lion of the Sand Head ;
has since been twice replaced, and another

Again our contemporary remarks :—
1 Tlore can be  no solid  objection against uiiioii, be-
I cause thc idea of '.■.', o i.,:"!-..* ■•.! raising revenue, in two
different parts  of thc snmc country, is ne.v.    Many of
the most Useful inventions ofthe age were new.'
Wc  might  search  Socrates, Aristotle, and  Plato in
' vain to discover such au instance of profound reasoning
i as this.  The idea of • many of the most useful inventions
I of '.he age' being new. is certainly rather astounding,
| but to draw the deduction that everything new is useful
i is we tiiink  coining to rather exaggerated conclusions.
For instance it would be a very new idea of ascension
i to climb up a beam of thc sun's rays, but we scarcely
1 think it would be found useful or practicable.    It would
be  also  something  new to associate the Colonist with
reason   or  common  sense, but  it  would by no means
follow that the association would be correct.
Thu above are fair specimens of the spot ious and
logical arguments set north by our contemporary of
Vancouver  island.    Although the "subject of nnnexa-
first place of several portions of the • Occasional Paper,
we regret still more ihe rather un-Christinn delight
manifested by a large number of both clerical and lay
members of other denominations at the idea of thu
Bishop, as we have heard some parties classically remark, ■ putting his foot in it.' We a.-c of opinion that
ii.tn h better for tlie- spiritual as "_"ell as the
■iirts of tin Ionics, however horrible it
may appear, to be deprived altogether of clericnl in-
| strtiction, if bigotry and a kind of business huckstering
! competition and childish spitefulness should be its per-
j petual accompaniment.

Oblivion into which it fell after the declaration of New judicious, in ordi r that ihey may be put into thc condi-

the investment consequent upon thc sale of the site of
i that capital, wc should irjt be surprised to find, at any
ha.-*, in citlicr (j.is-c, to bo chartered for the
purpose; wo are certain, therefore, when
taking these circumstances into proper con-
stik'i'atiiin, that but very little additional expense will he required to maintain a Light-
rslvin-. In the first place we believe the vessel can be laid down and efficiently equipped
•for little more than twelve hundred or thirteen hundred pounds. Three men will be
a sufficient force to man the ship—a master
at about one hundred and twenty pounds a
year, and two seamen at one hundred pounds
each per annum. Their rations will conic to
about one hundred und twenty pounds a year
collectively' Oil, about forty pounds, and tho
wear and tear of the ship, say one hundred
pounds, making in all a yearly outlay of live
hundred and eighty pounds- For such a paltry outlay, wo do not see how Government
can any longer postpone such an invaluable
undertaking. It is absolutely useless attempting to lay down any moro of tho outer buoys,
The Post Office.—A more unfortunate department
does  not exist in the colony than our Post-office.    Not
only is it put into jail but its visitors from  the   upper
part of the town are compelled to make their way across
a lather primitive district of country,  crossing ravines
on  planks,  and  undergoing, in other respects, n great
amount  of personal  inconvenience.     We  have  seen
post-offices in gold count-ifs, besc.gcd before now  and
I we consequently imagine that the strung military posi-
I tion  taken up by this department In New   Westminster
is to  render nugatory all attempts on the part  of the
populace to approach it.    We hope, however,   that the
1    Government will,  as  soon as  possible  have
favorable opinion ofthe people and place such
any period in the history of both colonies when annexation would have proved a -vise stroke of policy it
would have been at the time to which wc allude. The
burthen of paying two governmental stall's was found
to l>e almost insupportable at such an early stage ol
the existence of the two countries. Hut Vancouver
Island, through some extraordinary nnd exaggerated
ideas of her importance, would have nothing to do
with Britisli Columbia. Montlis elapsed, and thc revenue of liritish Columbia assisted, in a great measure,
to support officials who were doing the work ot Van-
cover Island. However absenteeism has begun gradually to give way, and Vancouver Island officials are
being  appointed  by degrees  to  do Vancouver  Island
a more
an important institution as the post-office in a place less secluded from public observation, and more accessible to
the inhabitants of New Westminster.
The Cai.eihin'i.v.—This little steamer has been lately
undergoing repairs aud is at present capable of carrying
■Id pounds more steam to the inch than formerly. She

is the apathy that exists amongst thc principal towns
in the interior iln the subject of local government.
When New Westminster, by dint of n proper system of
agitation, obtained a municipal council, running ahead
of its -1 iwer competitor Victoria, lhe win was made
clear and easy for ail the rest of the to'., ns in the colony
to obtain similar privilege—not only ibis but his Excellency had actually recommended the formation of these
local institutions to thc various towns, raiher an extraordinary step of liberality lor a governor. We rIso
urged nt the time upon the inhabitants of Hope, Vale.
Douglas, und Cayoosh the absolute necessity, for the
sake of concentrating public opinion and bringing to
bear on thc actions of government nn influence not to
be despised, the immediate formation of municipal
councils. Hut apathy was all-powerful — nothing ol
the kind was done, and the result proved as we had
predicted—an all powerful weapon in lb-* hands of
Covernment to crush in an apparently legitimate and
reasonable manner any attempts on the part ofthe population of this colony to olitam Representative Government. We resemble too ninth the colony of Victoria

Pick and click
Go the types in the slick.
As the Printer stands at bis ease ;
His eyes glance quick, and  his lingers pick
The types at a rapid pace.
And one by one as the letters go,
Words are piled Up StC-adj and slow—
Stead-) and slow,
But still tbey grow :
And words of fire tbey soon will glow ;
Wonderful «ords, that without a sound
Shall iriin'T-i' '!)•' earth \-, il.- utoioRi bound—
Words that shall   take
The tyrant quake,
And the bonds ofthe slave nnd oppresaM shall break
Words that can crumble an ami) s might,
Or treble its strength in a righteous tight.
Yet the types, tbey looked but leaden and dumb,
As he put them in place, with bis linger and thumb ;
But the printer smiled,
And his work beguiled,
By chanting a song as the letters he piled :
While pick and click
Went the types in the stick,
Like the world's chronometer, tick I lick I tick I
1 o where ie the mnn, with simple tools,
Can govern tlie world like 1 !
A printing press, nn iron sink,
And a little leaden die :
Witli paper of while, und ink of black,
1 support the Right, and the Wrong attack.
I pull the strings
Of puppet kings,
And I tweak lbe despot's nose ;
Cr I lei bin, alone
Till lbe pcoplo groan,
When I needs must interpose,
Nor yet again
Do I e'en disdain
To talk of lowly woes;
Then where is he,
Or who may lie lie,
Thai can rival The rentier's power?
To no monarch., that live
Tlie wall doth be give:
Their sway only lasts for an hour,
While the Printer's still grows,
Ami Cod alone knows
When liis might shall cease to lower.'
Garibaldi's Monxisos.—I this morning (Aug. 2) accompanied Garibaldi in his usual morning visit to the
Faro. Whatever lie tlie season. Garibaldi gels up at
dawn, and it is these early bonis of the morning that be
calls Ids own, when he likes to indulge in his day
dreams, or spend the time in confidential conversation.
When at home or in the camp he likes to saunter about,
leaving no spot in tb" neighborhood unexplored, and
having, above all, a tendency lo ascend all high bills or
towers Irom which you have the most extensive view
in the neighborhood, ll was in these early morning
walks, near the village of Quarto, in the mountains
about Genoa, that be worked out bis idea of a descent
upon Sicily, and on the heights of tho l'izzo di Fico
that he decided upon thc bold blow at Palermo. The
tower ofthe light-house at the Faro is likely to become
the brooding place of another great idea, for uot a
morning pusses without Garibaldi being seen at this
chosen s.iot. Besides indulging in this favorite pastime
ol contemplation and concentration in himself, his presence at the Faro just at this time is required to vivify
and advance the works which nre being constructed
tliere. Like time, Garibaldi waits for nobody, so 1
took care to be there at dawn, lie lives nt the Royal
palace, close lo the villa, lbe little ornamental garden
in the main street. As usual leaving the larger apartments to his suite he retired into a small corner room,
which forms his bedroom, study, and private room ;
adjoining it is a small room occupied by bis private
secretary. Ilc bad just, done dressing when 1 entered :
lie walked about in the room, scarcely illuminated by
thc first grey light oi the morning, finishing his toilet.
Coffee and some hard biscuit were ready for breakfast
on a small table encumbered with papers, lying about
in picturesque confusion, other papers, model anus,
rilles, muskets, swords, aud revolvers, samples of the
soldiers' rations us they ought to he, nnd cigars. Welcoming mc with n hearty shake of llie hand, he continued walking about twice or three times across the
room, then stopping , he asked mc, ' Do yon remember
the "Carmo della Morto" of UgoFoscolo?' (hi confessing my ignorance be commenced to recite it to mc,
giving all the emphasis of which those sublime verses
ure capable. Having finished, we sal down to have
some coll'cc. talking of poetry and the superiority of
versi sciolti over rhymes. Tbe carriage was ready, and
we drove through the still silent streets toward the
Marina.—Cor.  Times.
Rei.kiion or the Japanese.—The orthodox religion
ot Japan is Sintoo—all worship the sun. Their belief
is that the world was regenerated through the instrumentality and appearance of a female, and after having
performed this great and good work for which by God
she was ordained, she ascended io heaven and became
embodied in thc sun. Their national Hug is emblematic of their religion, displaying as il does the sun in
all its purity upon the while field. There are other
seats, and among them the most numerous would appear to be the followers of Buddha. The statement so
often made that Christianity is not at present in any
way tolerated, is a mistake, for the Government is far
from being intolerant in religious matters. The people
of Japan attend very little to religious matters, lte-
ligion is a matter of business, which is attended to altogether by the Makado and his priests.
The Government has decided on having the whole
ofthe iron-plated steam-floating batteries, now in harbor at Chatham and elsewhere, put in a state of thorough repair, und ready for immediate service : ami
operations have commenced on several of that class of
Vessels at Chatham dockyard.
A court-martial has sentenced Privates Hogon and
Washington, R. M., to penal servitude for the respective
periods of life and twenty-one years, the former for
threatening tho life of ami striking bis sergeant, and
other acts of mutiny, and tbe bitter for threatening the
life of his Colonel.
The Army and Navy Gazelle states that dissensions
have sprung up among the members ofthe Royal Commission appointed to enquire iuto the slote of the 'Jock.-,
yards, kc, und that Mr. Ricurdo, M. P., the chairman,
has resigned. He will bs succeeded by Mr, F. Peel, M.lfe
Tbe remaining members of the commission are lor lhc
pretiuut pursuing their labors, wl'.ieli prom is., to Uts i -!'

The Sky and the Wkatiieii. -Simple as arc the following maxims, tbe British Board of Trade have thought
fit to publish them for the use of seafaring men. They
will be found worth cutting out and preserving by other
classes than thc one thus benefitted,and though designed
for climates more variabl. than that of California,
they are none the less applicable as general rules to ibis
coast. We have so few lixed signs and arbitrary methods by which to frame our judgement of thc mailer,
that these may serve as n basis for further observations
The colors of'the -kt at parti, ular times afford womb r-
I'ullv good guidance. Not only does a rosy sunset presage fair weather, and a ruddy sunrise bad weather,
I-ut there are oilier lint, which speak with equal clearness and accuracy. A bright yell --' sky in the evening
in iicates wind j a pale yellow, wet : a neutral gray color
consiiiuie'sa favorable sign in the evening, and an unfavorable in-iu'ii" morning. The clouds again are
full of meaning in themselves. Iftheir forms arc soft
undefined and feathery, tbe weather will be fine; it tho
edges are hard, sharp; definite, it will lie foul. Generally speaking, any deep, unusual hues betoken wind or
rain : while tho more quiet and delicate tints bespeak
fair weather.—S. F. Herald.
Maiiui.mii'. Statistics.—The tables prepared by tho
Registrar and his assistants for the year  1858 disclose,
as usual, some curious facts.    For instance, il  appears
that iu the year 1858 three girls of 15 were married to
youths of 18; ono of 10 to a boy of 17: a young woman
of 19 was   ivi'il'lcl   to a lad ol Id ; twelve girls ofthe
ngc of 15 were married to  men of 21 ; in all 20 of the
wives were only 15 years of age, 19. were 10 years, 101C
were IT.    The' agent which  the greatest number of
women   marry is 20.    A  greater  number marry  at 30
iban at in; indeed, more marry at 30 than at 25 or 'Jl
or 18.    Five  venerable  old   dames of 75,  all of them
widows, found husbands, one an active bachelor of 55.
A girl of 17 was "sacrificed' toa man of 02; aud another
young creature of 20 to an old fellow of 75.    Three men
in thc ugc of80 were married to woman of 50.    A spinster of70 was wedded toabachelor of i)5 ; but tlie large
majority of the  women who   marry at that period of
life of course arc widows.—London News.

London, says the Registrar-General, now covers 121
square miles—a square ol eleven miles to a side, lt is
equal to three Londons of 1800, lt increases at thc
rac of 1000 a week, half by births (their excess over

' Jt Expi Is Jiiscusc !
It is said that all productions of human skill have
their day. and me superseded by new inventions or discoveries. Not so with this remedy. •' It is not Corn
day. but for all time, and in all countries." And Why?
Because it strikes at the generic rout of all diseases in
the blood, and medical art can accomplish nothing beyond that. Thc Ointment, penetrating through flesh
and fibre, like water through a porous substance,
reaches the genu or disease, such as scrofula, erysipelas,
cancer, tumor, and all eruptive and ulcen us discharges
in tlie circulation, and eradicates the taint at once and
forever in tbis climate.
Bad Legs.
Tbis ointment will cure any case of Bad Leg even if
of twenty years standing, or however hard or discolored
the flesh may be, or if swollen the size of a person's
body, provided the Ointment is well rubbed into the
whole of the purts affected twice a day iu large quantities, and the parts kept covered with linen rags thickly
spread with thc Ointment; from this mode of treatment,
a plentiful discharge of unhealthy humor will follow,
until the wounds are all healed on tbe leg, or other
parts assume their natural appearance.
Old Wounds, Sons, and I'lccrs.
The most inveterate eases ot bad legs, scrofulous, or
other sores, are cured, if of 20 years standing, by ihe
joint use of thc Ointment and Pills. Tho ctfeet of this
unrivalled remedy upon virulent ulcers and sines, is almost miraculous, lt first discharges the poison which
produces suppuration and proud flesh, and thus ti.e
ciiies which its healing properties afterwards complete,
nre safe as well us permanent. It has a wonderful effect
in the cure of sores occasioned by mosquctos, sand-
Hies, or giggers.
This Ointment will cure thc worst cases of Piles if
used according to the printed directions even if of 20
years standing.
Eruptions on the Skin.
Blotches, pimples, dry eruptions, and all irritations
of tbe skin, fade and disappear after a few applications
of Holloway's Ointment. Jn these cases brisk friction
is indispensable. Many of the ordinary eruptions are
caused by suppressed perspiration, and as Ibis penetrating unguent ut once opens the pores, and invigorates
the absorbents, it dissipates the inflammation by it
double process. Ladies whose faces or aims are disfigured by cutaneous diseases, may readily remove the
blemish and restore to lbe skin its natural tint, flexibility, anil 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 pharmacopicia have proved
useless, the Ointment will accomplish n thorough cure.
Fever sores heal quickly under its influence, and its
relaxing ell'ect upon contracted sinews is truly wonderful.
Rheumatism, Scrofula, Erysipelas.
These are among the most terrible and agonizing diseases, yet. it; their worst forms, and when seemingly
incurable, they invariably disappear under a persevering
application of tbis soothing, healing tintiilotc to pain
and iiilliiiiiiniition.
Both lho Ointment and Pills should bc used in lhe following
cases :—
Bad Legs. [Contracted   and iScalds.

It has lrng been a must Important desideratum In the practice
of medicine, to obtain a remedy similar to this, nnd accordingly
we find It resorted to almost universally in nil those torn,''tiling

Why are Diseases so Fatal in Tropical Climatttl
Merely because we prescribe for their effect, insttiJ
of their cause, nnd try to relieve symptoms instead ol
striking nt their root." The action of these Pills Is pit<
ciscly the reverse. They expel from the secretive organs uii'l the circulation the morbid mutter which produces Inflammation, pain, fever, debility, and phjsiol
ileciiy ; nml the Ic-is of disease being removed,iU
manifestations vanish. While ordinary remedies oilj
afford n temporary respite to thc sufferer, whereas these
Pills annihilate the disorder.
