THE BRITISH PREMIERSHIP.-Lord
Derby, who has just resigned tho
premiership of England, is in the
sixty-ninth year of his age, by uo
means what is considered in that land
of .physical stamina and endurance
an old man. He entered parliament,
then Mr. Stanly, in 1821, and soon
took rank among the ablest debaters
of tho house. In 1827 ho took office
as under secretary for tho colonies in
Qeorge Canning's administration.
When Lord Grey's reform cabinet
was formed, in 1830, he was appoint- I
ed under secretary for Ireland, with
the additional honor of a seat in the
cabinet. In 1832 and '33 Mr. Stanly
greatly distinguished himself by his
parliamentary oloqueuco* iu the dis?
cussion of the reform bill, tho church
temporalities bill and tho bill to
establish national education in Ire?
land. In 1833 ho was nominated
Secretary of State for tho colonies,
with the special object of carrying
the abolition of slavery in tho West j
Indies, which was effected under his
auspices. In 1831, on the succession
of his father to the earldom, he be?
came known as Lord Stanly, and on
the death of his father, in 1851, be?
came Earl Derby. During the whig
administration of Lord Melbourne ho
. relinquished his whig associates and
became a conservative leader, and
upon the defeat of Lord Russell's
militia biH, in 1852, was called by the
Queen to construct a cabinet, which,
after ten months' tenure-of-ofiico,
was succeeded by the Abordoen cabi?
net. This, in its turn, gave place to
the Palmerston cabinet, on whoso re?
signation Lord Derby was again
called to the premiership, au offico
which has on several other occasions
been offered to him and declined.
Lord Derby comes of tho old and
heroic family of Stanly of Lfltica- j
shire, upon whose representatives, in
1485, Henry VII conferred tho Earl- j
dom of Derby for acts of prowess at j
tho battle of Rosworth, and fer moro
.than two centin ios tho euria of that
line were sovereigns of tho Isle of j
Man. Vast estates in England and :
Ireland aro attached to tho earldom.
It is announced that the Queen hus :
called upon Mr. Disraeli, tho present '
Chancellor of tho Exchequer, to form
a new cabinet. Should he accept the
position he will cap the climax of a ?
political career which is justly rc- j
garded aa ono of the most ^xtra- ;
ordinary iu British histor? Tho j
successor of the descendant of a long I
line of nobles will be tho son of an
English author, whoso ancestors re?
moved to England in 1748, from
Venice, whither their fore-fathers, of
Hebrew race, had fled in the nf- 1
teenth century from the inquisition
in Spain. The representative of this j
humble and persecuted family, un- I
aided by wealth and contending with
tho prejudices against his Jewish
origin, has become leader of tho
House of Commons, one of tho ablest
of modern deliberativo assemblies,
minister of finance in tho greatest
commercial empire of the world, aud
ia now ottered tho premiership or
virtuul sovereignty of the British
Since tho terrible earthquake at
St. Thomas and other Gulf Islands, it
has been discovered that tho Gulf
stream has nearly doubled its veloci?

among scientific men. It was first
discovered in the increased difficulty
of navigation near tho Florida Keys,
even steamers finding it difficult to I

An order has been issued by tho

THE MISEKAU?JUS OP THIS
BRIGHT AND CHEERFUL. WOULD
ARE THE DYSPEPTICS-Without a
good digestion there can neither be bodily
comfort nor mental enjoyment.
Between thc stomach and tho brain
there is a closo and wonderful alliance
If tho ono is disordered the other is
gloomy, dejected, incapable of effort, and
indifferent to all that makes life agreeable
to the hoalthy.
Is this a condition that any rational hu?
man being is willing to enduro, when tho
means of certain, immediato and perma?
nent relief can bo obtained everywhere?
Tho Dyspeptic has his fate in his own
hands. If he chooses to banish forever
thc disorder that racks his body and dis?
turbs the miud with nameless horrors, he
has only to step to the nearest drug store
and procure a supply of
HOHTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS.
No phase of Dyspepsia has ever vet re?
sisted the alterativo, tonic and anti-bilious
operation of this potent vegetable specific.
It literally regenerates tho lethargic sto?
mach; rouses into healthy action tho dor?
mant liver; puts to flight tho dismal fan?
cies that beset tho mind; gently relieves
and regulates the bowels; strengthens the
enfeebled nerves; restores tho appotito,
and makes, as it were, a new creature of
the des|H)iidinR and debilitated invalid.
I ...dies who suffer from indigestion have
onlv to take a small dose of this pure vege?
table corrective, once or twice a day, to
secure entire oxemption from tho pains
and penalties of a weak stomach and that
?ierfoct functional regularity, which but
ow of the sex uninterruptedly enjoy.
