TIirilSDAY, Al'KIL :i. 18H..
THE SOUDAN WAR.
l'uiliuuhirs of llic batllo of ISIiuclt
22ml, briefly referred to in yester
day's summary, arc ns follows: While
detnehments of English utid Indian
infantry were making a zarccbn
.seven miles southwest of Suakim,
they wcic suddenly surprised by a
rush of Arabs, who were massed and
concealed in the defiles west of Has
been. The Kuglish foimetl n square
as quickly as possible, but the
camels, mules and horses wcic
drbicti back in confusion on the
troops, causing a blainpcdo, and
amid clouds of diisl the Arabs pene
trated the south and north sides of
tlic square. Meanwhile the marines
and Berkshire lcgimcnt, who were
on the east and west "idea of the
square, nnunuuneu a continuous
flic, holding the enemy at bay, while
a charge from the cavalry and the
fire from tin guns at the Ilashccn
zarecba checked thu "onslaught of
the Arabs, which at tho outset
threatened seiious disaster to the
British. The Ibitish loss was esti
mated at the lime to be 52 killed
and 8.") wounded, but the latest esti
mate made it a loss of f80, includ
ing camp-followers. Nearly all the
casualties were due to spear thrusts
received in hand-to-hand engage
ments. The attack was made at
. three o'clock in the morning. Dur-
ing the night camels and mules were
hamstrung by Arabs and scores of
camp-followers cut up. The scene
was indescribable when the yelling
Arabs caused tho stampede of ani
mals. Arabs glided in all directions
among the animals, and linden
dowas swarmed fioin the bush like
magic, and attacked the zareeba
fiercely on all sides. The Soudanese
coolies were mistaken for the enemy,
and many were killed by their.
friends. The Indian tioops held
their own gallantly ,as soon as they
were able to close the square. When
eventually unable to stand the steady
fire any longer, the enemy disap
peared as they came. Osman Dig
na's famous chief, Taggiah, aths
killed in the engagement.
The Guards and marines, while
advancing from the Ilashccn
zarecba on March 21th, to meet a
convoy from .Suakim, had several
musketry skirmishes with the rebels.
At first the British loss was put at
sixteen wounded and one killed,
- but Gcu. Graham afterward tele
graphed the Home Government
that he feared he must add to the
number killed thirty-eight men
missing fiom the Sikhs (Indian)
The London JJaily JSfcws, which
on the 23rd of February urged that
it was absolutely necessary to move
on Khartoum and defeat the Mahdi
there, now says: "Any honorable
means by which these sanguinary
and hateful campaigns can be stop
ped will be welcomed with genuine
delight. .Some suppose that Lord
Wolsclcy's retirement from Korti is
only a preliminaiy to his withdrawal
down tho Kile. Would that with
drawal were possible."
The St. James' Gazelle denounces
the incapacity shown at head
quarters, and says: "This murder
ous military scullle would never
have happened if Gens. McNeill and
Graham had taken precautions
which should have occurred to a
cadet." The general press com
ments arc in the same tone.
A London special to the New York
Sun of March 28th says: The op
position to the Suakim operations
grows daily and the Liberal"' wire
pullers arc biinging a terrible' pres
suic to bear on Gladstone to abandon
the whole scheme. The killing of a
few women and children has added
to tho popular honor and soldiers
do not like a job which is much
tougher than was expected. General
McNeill is a .society pet and Ills ap
pointment was a scandalous court
Another despatch of the same date
says: The censorship over all
telegrams bent from Suakim to the
press has been made recently much
stricter than ever. Cablegrams re
ceived from 'Suez, between which
place and Suakim there is good com
munication, show that General Gra
ham is making very little progress in
his expedition to Bcibcr. After the
much-heralded advance, to make
which two weeks have been con
sumed and several hundred lives
)ost, his ca'mp is to-day just two
miles nearer Berber than is Suakim.
Nothing had been done up to the
close of March toward the construc
tion of the Berber railway. The want
of it puts a severe strain upon men,
mules and camels, making them carry
heavy burdens through tho torrid

The Federation of Liberal Asso

A SKILFUL SURGICAL OPERATION.
The American Ambassador aj Vienna,
Mr. lCnnn, hsi lately forwatdcil to his
Governmental! interesting account of a
icmnrkablo surgical operation lately
pel formed 1v Professor Rllboth, of
Vienna, which, wonderful In loll, con
sistcd in the removal of a portion
of the liuninii stomuch, involving
nearly ouc'tlibd of the oignn and.
slr.mgo to nay, the patient, iccovcml
the only suiccssrul operation of the
kind ever performed. The disease for
which this opcialiou was performed
was cimcerof tliu stomach, attended with
the folio win; symptoms: The appetite
is quite poor. There is a peculiar indes.
ciiuuDic utstress in tno stomach, a feci
Ing that has been described as a fnlut
"all gone" sensation; a sticky slime col
lects about the teeth, especially in the
morning, accompanied by an unpleasant
taste. Food falls to satis'fy tills peculiar
faint sensation; but, on the conliary, it
appeals to aggravate the feeling. Thu
eyes aic sunken, tinged with yellow; tho
hands and feci become cold and sticky
a cold peri-phatlon. The suficicrs feel
tired nil thu time, mid sleep docs not
seem to give rest. After a time the pa.
tient becomes nervous and irritable,
gloomy, his mind llllocl with evil fore
bodlngs. When rising suddenly fiom
a lecumbcnt position there is a diz.luess.
n whistling sensation, and he is obliged
to grasp homctliing llrm to keep fiom
falling. The bowels costive, the skin

ing thick and stagnant, and docs not
cit dilate pioperly. " After a lime the
patient spits up food soon after eating,
'.omctimes in a sour and fermented con.
ditiou, sometimes sweetish to the taste.
Oftentimes there is a palpitation of the
heart, and the patient fears he may have
heart disease. Towards the lat the
patient is unable to retain any food
whatever, as the opening in the intcs.
tines becomes closed, or nearly so. Al
though this disease is indeed alarming,
siifl'ercis with the above named symp
toms should not feel nervous, for nine

thousand hac no cancer, but simply
dyspepsia, a disease easily icmovcd if
treated in a, piopci manner. The safest

Dear Sir,- 1 find llic sale of Scigel's

Hear Sir, I write to inform you thai
I have derived great benetit from
"Seigel's Syiup." For some years I have
suffered fiom liver complaint, with its
many and varied concomitant evils, so
that my life was a perpetual misery.
Twelve months ago I was induced to try
Scigel's Syrup, and although rather
sceptical, having tiled so many lenutcd
infallible leinedics, I determined to give
it al least a fair tiial. In two or thiee
daj's I fell consideinbly better, and now
at the end of twelve months (having
continued t.ikUig it) I am glad to toy
that I am a dillercnt being altogether.
It is said of certain pens that they "come
us a boon and a blessing to men" and I
havu no icason to doubt the truthfulness
of llio' statement. 1 can truly say, how
ever, that Scigel's Syi up has come as a
"boon and a blesslng",lo me. I have re.
commended it to several fcllow-suffciers
from this distiessing complaint, and
their testimony is quite in accordance
with my own. Uiatitude for tho benefit
I havo derived from the excellent pre
paration, prompts mo to furnish you
with this unsolicited testimonial.
I am dear Sir,
Yours ever gratefully,

The other day a customer came for
two bottles of Syrup and said "Mother
Selgcl" had saved the life of his wife,
and he added, "one of these bottles I
am sending fifteen miles away to a friend
who is very ill. I havo much fath hi it."
The sale keeps up wonderfully, In fact,
one would fancy almost that the people
were beginning to bienkfiist, dine, and
sup on Mother Seigel's Syrup, tho de
lniuid Is so constant and the satisfaction
