Purify the lilood, and tbe health of tbe

These Bitters aro aot a gilded pill, to de

cal Preparation, composed of the Beat Vege
table Ingredients known.
CUau$e tho Vitiated lilood, whenever yon
find it impurities bursting through tbe skin,
in Pimples, Eruptions, or orcs; Chant it
when yau find it-obstructed or sluggish in the
Vein; Cleatue it whjn it is foul, and your
fcettvy will tell tell you when. Keep the
Blood healthy, and all will be well.

tions of the Stomach, Bad Taste in the Mouth,
Bilious Attacks, Palpitation uf the Heart. In
carnation of tbe Lungs. Copious Discharges
of Urine, Pain in the Region of the Kidneys,
and a hundred other painful symptoms, arc
tbe offspring of this Dyspepsia. For these
troubles, take Dr. "Walker's Vinegar Bitters,
and quickly all painful symptoms will disap
pear. It is a Gentle Purgative,
As well as a. Tonic, possessing, also, the pecu
liar merit of acting as a powerful agent in
relieving Congestion, or Inflamation of tbe
Liver, and all the Visceral Organs. In this
respect, these Bitters have no equal.
For Pemale Complaints,
Whether in tbe young' or old. married Or sin
gle, at the dawn of womanhood or the turn of
life, these Tonic Bitters display so decided an
influence, that a marked improvement is soon
perceptible in the health of the patient.
For Inflammatory Sheumatism,
Chronie Rheumatism and Gout, these Bitters
have been most successful. They are caused
by vitiated blood, which is generally produced
by derangement of tbe Digestive Organs.
Pin, Tape and other Wormt, lurking in tbe
system of so many thousands on the Pacific
Coast, are effectually destroyed and removed.
Morbid Condition of the Blood.
This ie tbe fruitful source of many diseases,
such as Tetter or Salt Rheum, Ringworm
.Boils, Carbuncles. Sores Ulcers, Pimples, and
Eruptions of all kinds. For the cure of these
various affections, which arc merely symptoms
of a Morbid Condition of the Blood, medical
science and skill have not. as yet; discovered
a Blood Purifier equal to Walker's Vinegar
Diseases of the Blood,
Liver, Kidneys, and Bladder. It thoroughly
eradicates every kind of humor and bad taint,
and restores the entire system to a healthy
condition. It is perfectly harmless, never pro
ducing the slightest injury.
Bilious Bemittent Fevers,
And Intermittent Fevers, which are so preva
lent in the Valleys of tbe Pacific Coast, during
tbe Summer and Autumn, and especially dur
ing seasons of unusual heat and dryness, aro
invariably accompanied with extensive de
rangements of the Stomach and Liver, and
other abdominal viscera. There are always
more or less obstructions of tbe Liver, a weak
ness and irra table state of tbe Stomach, and
great topor of the Bowels, being clogged up
with vitiated accumulations. In their treat
ment, a purgative, exerting a powerful influ
ence upon these various organs, is essentially
necessary. There is no cathartic for this pur
pose equal to Dr. J. Walker's Vinegar Bitters,
as they will speedily remove the dark-colored
viscfd matter with which tbe bowels arc load
ed, at the same time stimulating the secretions
of the Liver, and restoring tbe healthy func
tions of tbe Digestive Organs generally. The
universal popularity of this valuable remedy
in regions subject to miasmatic influences, is
sufficient evidence of its power as a remedy in

The Labor Exchange.
Doubtless all or jour readers bare beard
o! the California Labor Exchange, which
was established a little over a Tear oo in
tbU city. Tbe success of tbis Institution
has been far greater than was anticipated by
Its founders. Tbe demand for labor Is always
far ahead of the supply. Tbe Exchange has
been supported by tbe contributions of mer
chants and others, and no charge whatever
is made, either to tbe laborer or tbe one ap
plying for help. In the month of July, 933
persons were furnished with employment:
G2!) men and 329 women. The business cf
tbe Exchange Is attended to by a Secretary,
who has a salary of 200 a month. lie Is in
constant correspondence with persons In va
rious parts of tbe world, who are anxious to
learn tbe prices of labor in Calllornla.
The Exchange has been already of great
benefit to tbe State In Imparting useful in
formation about the labor market; in furn
ishing employment to thousands; in making
the character and remarkable resources of
the State Vnown throughout the world ; and,
in fact, it has taught us our true condition.
Visitors from the East bare been much
pleased with the working of tbis Exchange,
and Intend to advocate the establishment of
similar institutions in their own cities. It
will not be long before a free Labor Exchange
is established in every city of tbe United
States that has a Merchants' Exchange.
Tbe subject of labor is so important to the
prosperity of every country, that it is sur
prising that an institution similar in character
to the California Labor Exchange has not
been established in Honolulu. Tbe facts
gathered at such an Exchange in one year,
would present truths that you are now en
tirely ignorant qf, and that are worthy of
being known to yourselves, aud of being
made known to tbe world, to assist in devel
oping tbe resources of the country.
The demand for labor is, with you, as It is
with us, far ahead of tbe supply, but what
intelligent statistics can be presented to tbe
inquirer abroad, showing the demand, tbe
character of the labor in demand, the wages
paid, etc, together with facts about lands,
and the extent, character and price of tbe
A Nice Cane.
The Society of California Pioneers are go
ing to present Mr. Seward with a beautiful
cane on his return from the North, "ft is
made of iron-wood, surmounted with ahead
of artistic design. Tbe bead is three and a
half inches in length, eight-square, and is
composed, In part, of 41 triangular pieces of
gold-bearing quartz, obtained from about
twenty of the leading mines In this State,
which are set in gold. Four of the sides
contain cngraTingH. The top of tbe bead
opens, like a watch-case, and inside arc eight
compartments, covered by glass, containing
tbeollowing metals, prod nets of California :
gold dust, iron dust, copper dust, platinum
dust, crushed quartz, black sand and gold,
crystallized quartz, and cinnabar." The cane
arc getting very common on our streets.
They reel about the sidewalks; lay around
tbe street corners; and stagger Into tbe
street cars. If there Is any sight melancholy
to heboid, It is a drunken woman, half
dressed, laying on the sidewalk, swearing at
the taunts and jeers of a crowd ol children,
with no policemen around to disperse the
crowd, or take the woman away.
Tlie Greatest Story yet.
Tbe people near Los Angclos bare seen
something wonderful. The most reliable
men there say that at 13 o'clock, M., on Sun
day last, a shower of meat and blood, cover

took place. Tbe shower lasted fully three
minutes, and tbe blood covered the blades of
corn and left them red. The blood was
mixed with a short, fine hair, resembling tbe
outer coating of furred animals. Tbe meat
was in pieces, ranging from fine particles to
strips of six and eight inches in length. Tbe
meat appeared to be tbe lights, liver and
heart of some freshly killed animals. The
day was perfectly clear, and the sun was
shining brightly, aud there was no percepti

persons in the neighborhood vouch for the
above statement. .
The California University.
Tbe title to the site of the University, at
Berkley, has been confirmed by Judge Saw
yer, and it will soon be confirmed by tbe
Supreme Court. After tbis Is done, the erec
tion of the buildings will be commenced.
These will be substantial and Imposing, and
a great ornament to the "opposite shore."
The Professors of tbe institution have been
elected, and their salaries fixed at $300 a
month. Tbe entrance fee for stndcnts is $20,
and their tuition is $00 per annum. The
University will be inaugurated on the 23d of
September next, aud buildings have been
leased In Oakland for its use, until those
at Berkley arc finished. It Is expected that
the corner-stone of the new building will be

city, and be wants to be elected for a second
term, and is laying bis wires accordingly.
The election for city and county officers will
take place now in a week or two, and the
people are preparing for a vigorous move to
throw McCoppin and his crowd overboard,
place our municipal government in honest
hands, and save it, if possible, from tbe
disgrace that has overtaken tbe Irish city
of New York, and towards which we are fast
McCoppin, who was elected by tbe Irish
Democrats, has no qualifications for Mayor.
He has grown fat at the city's expense, and
has done nothing to merit a re-election at
the bands of tbe people. It Is alleged that
he voted and held office In this country be
fore he was a naturalized citizen of the United
States. His past record is not very bright,
and he is unable to give the date of his birth.
San Francisco Charges
James Jlcdill, the principal editor of the
Chicago Tribune, and who was one of tbe
Chicago commercial party, baa written to
bis paper some, very thoughtful letters about
California. Tbe following remarks. In one
of his late letters, will doubtless be appreci
ated bymany of jour readers who have vis
ited tbis city:
"San Francisco Is undonbtedly a dear city.
Business is transacted exclusively on a coin
basis, and a dollar lu gold here has less than
tbe purchasing power or a greenback down
In Chicago, for nearly everj- commodity or
service, except wheat, fruiis, vegetable and
Chinese labor. Money goes buta small way
for things else. A bootblack asks a silver
quarter for putting a shine on your boots, the
barber ditto lor smoothing your face, the bar
tender a quarter for any drink, tbe tobac
conist the same for a weed of moderate quali
ty, or u paper of fine-cut. A paper collar or
a bunch of tooth-picks cost a silver quarter.
Tbe bairgagc,sma6her charges half a dollar
for handling your trunk or valise; and the
whole Jebu tribe bleed their victims in like
manner. The railroads exact six to eight
cents per mile, and the stages from 15 to 25
cents per mile. The newsboys ask a " bit"
I. e., a dime lor a city paper, and if you hand
them a quarter they Invariably return only a
" bit" in change. No smaller coin than a
dime Is seen. If you buy an apple, apricot,
per or peach, tbe price is a " bit" although
you can have a pound or more ol the same
for a dime. The poorest people, as well as
the richest, must pay a silver dime for the
smallest article in the market or grocery, A
stick of candy costs a dime, and in all cases
where a quarter is tendered fnr anything (old
at a " bit," the seller cheats you out of fire
cents in making change. The sole exception
to dearness tbe only cheap thing to be in
San Francisco is riding on tbe horse cars,
which only co6ts a quarter for four rides, but
if you band tbe driver a quarter for a single
ride, he gives you back a "bit," and keeps
15 cents. It would seem "rather Bteep" In
Chicago to bare to pay 35 cents In greenbacks
for a cigar, a shave, a "smash," a lager or
lemonade, or 15 cents for a copy of the Tri
bune, an apple, or peach, or a row of pins.
There Is no necessity or justification for these
charges, save that of habit and tbe Innate love
oi extortion. San Francisco shonld be as
cheap a city to live in as Chicago, and must
be made much If bcr people would retain or
extend their trade and commerce. The day
for exorbitant charges has gone by, and tbe
people here should recognize tbe fact, and
comport themselves accordingly. In a city
supplied with bread, meat, fruit6, vegetables,
tlsli, game, as cheap as any otlier large city In
tbe Union, it is simply absurd for mechanics,
servants and laborers to demand tbe wages
tbey do; and retailers, grocers, saloon-keepers,
tobacconists, backmcn, stuge-owners,
railroads, hotel and boarding-bouse keepers,
to inaKe the charges they do."
More a boat that Los Angeles Meat Shower.
Science kind and patient science has
come forward and furnished a solution to
the wonderful flesh-and-biood shower story,
which I hasten to give to your readers.
Old Callfornians state that the shower was
caused by Calllornla vultures, which, having
gorged themselves with dead horse, and risen
high In tbe air, eject it from their stomachs,
either from sickness or In battle with the
eagle. These birds are very large, like the
South American vulture, and can take Into
their stomachs a vast quantity of carrion.
In tbis way, is tbe singular story accounted
'for. " Only this, and nothing more."

It is reported that there is serious difficulty
among the volunteers; many in the Interior
are joining the Republicans. The Spanish
troops are represented in so demoralized a
condition as to be almost beyond the control
of their officers. Everything is favorable to
the Cuban cause.
The Cuban leaders state that if belligerent
rights are granted them by the United States,
the effect on Cuba will be lueh that in lets
than thirty days they will bare possession of
the entire Island outside of Ilarana. They
claim that the people of Cuba all sympathize
with the Ccspedes Ghsernment, and that the
disaffection of the Spanish troops would leave
the Spanish Government without an army.

Tbe Time has an editorial on tbe relations
between England and the United States, sug
gested by the Queen's elosiog speech. The
writer says the Queen's opening and closing
speeches are apparently inconsistent, but the
explanation is found in the fact that interna
tional relations depend on the reciprocity feel
ing of the people, and not on the negotiations
of their Ministers. Messrs. Johnson, Stanley
and Seward hare been succeeded by others,
bat the inreties of peace and friendship abide
on a stronger basis than diplomacy can furnish.

Political and social, Fabric or tBk
Chinese Empire. The principles npon
which the whole social and political fabric)
of the Empire is based, had already been
established, and had taken a firm root
in the national mind in earl historical
times; and so firmly were they fixed that
every attempt to overthrow them has
ended in the extinction of the aggressive
dynasties. These principles are. paternal
and filial duty, and individual responsibility
(or tho public welfare. Ab tho Emperor
is tho son of Heaven and 'the father or the
people, he is responsible to Heaven for the
well-being of the nation ; a portion only
of his power is delegated to the oQicera of
the Government. So, also, in the family,
tbe parent is supreme, but also responsi
ble for the conduct of the children. The
entire population of a city is responsible
for tbe citizens ; each ward for its families ;
each family for its members. No crime is
greater than the violation of filial duty in
the family relation, and all crimes acting
against tho public good, are brought to the.
doors of the public sponsors.
Bat tbe Chinese, always too material
and practical a people to vest the control
of tho imperial will in Heaven alone, es
tablished, so far as wo know, tirst among
mankind, the principle that the will of the,
people and the will of Heaven are synony
mous. In the Shu-king, compiled br Con
fucius, 500 years Lt. C, from Authorities
much more ancient, we find tbe following
axiom: " mat winch Heaven sees and
hears, manifests itself in that which tho
people see acd hear." " That which the
people judge worthy of reward and of pun
ishment, indicates what Hearen desires to
reward and to punish." Again, it was
said in the Chung-King t " Tho wise Em
perors of ancient times ased the eyes and
ears of the Empire to see and hear, for
the wishes of the people were their wishes,
since it is in tho wishes of the people that
tho intentions or Heaven aro manifested.
Believing thns firmly that " the voice of
the people Is tho voice of God," a council
of the wisest men of the Empire, them
selves raised irom the peoplo, lias ever
surrounded the throne, holding the posi
tion of censors, memorializing the Emperor
on the stato of the country, and, generally,
not hesitating to risk thoir lives in criti
cising a wrong policy.
As the peoplo are the children of tho
Emperor, tbey are all equal, as members
of one family. There is no distinction of
class. The descendants of Confucius have,
indeed, by that title, certain privileges of
nobility, and the members of tho imperial
family form, daring tho existence of a dy
nasty, a class of nobles ; but they enjoy
only a few slight prerogatives, which end
with the ninth remove. Whenever a citi
zen has rendered somo signal service to
tho State, ndrancing the public good, be
is ennobled, receiving certain titles and
privileges, but these cease at his death,
his descendants having no further share in
them than the honor of being his offspring.
As no man can be greater than his father,
the whole line of ancestors is ennobled.
Thus, an anstorcrny is formed, indeed, bat
it is wisely perpetuated backward into the
All being equal, competition for office
is open for all. Education is nniversal.and
proficiency in scholarship forms tbe basis

successive competitive examinations, take

Aoe of the Earth. Among tho as
tonnding discoveries of science is that of
tho immense periods that have passed in
the gradual formation of the earth. So
vast wero tho cycles of lime preceding
even the nppcarnnco of a man on the sur
face of our globe, that onr own period
seems as yesterday when compared with
the epochs that have gone before it. Had
weonly the evidence of the deposits of
rocks heaped on each other in regular
strata by tbe Blow accumulation of materi
als, they alone would convince ns of tho
long and slow maturing of God's work on
earth ; bnt when we add to these the suc
cessive population of whose life the world
lias been the theatre, and whose remains
are hidden in tho rocks into which the
mad, or sand, or soil of whatever kind on
which the livcdihas hardened in the course
of time or the enormous chains of moaa
tains whose upheaval divided these periods
of qaiet accumulation of ereat convulsions
or the changes of a different nature in
the configuration of our globe, as the sink
ing of lands beneath the ocean, or tbe
gradual risings of continents and islands'
above or tho slow growth of the coral
reefs, those wonderful seawalls raised by
the littlo ocean architects, whose own
bodies furnish both the building stoaes
and the cement that binds them together,
and who worked so busily daring tbe long
centuries, that there are extensive coon
tries, mountain chains, islands and long-'
lines of coasts, consisting solely of their
remains or tbe countless forests that
have grown np, flourished .and decayed, to
fill tbe storehouse of coat that feeds the
fires of the human race. If we consumer
all these records of the past, the intellect
fails to grasp a chronology of which oar
experience famishes no data, the timet
that lies behind ss items as mack aa
eternity to oar conception as the fat are
that stretches indefinitely before as.
