CHAMTV. HOSPITALS IN LONDON.
They take good caro of the sick in
London. In one year, fourteen
charity hospitals have given aid and
treatment to 33,000 in-patients nnd
550,000 out-patients. London hus a
population of 3,000,000, and it will
be seen that nearly one-fifth of the
people receive aid from publio chari?
ties. All tho relief thus afforded is
quite independent of that given by
medical officers of the poor-law ser?
? Mf the reports of the London pa?
pers and of the correspondente of
that city aro to be .believed, Mr.
Disraeli is occasionally a viotim to a
habit which sometimes betrays pub?
lic men on both sides of the water.
It is more than hinted that ou the
occasion of his last speech on the
Irish Church question, on the night
of the division, he was "fuddled."
The buffalo gnats are killing the
stock throughout the South-west
country. Tho stock along the river
Counties suffer most. The late spell
of bad weather has inoreased the
gnats. Planters in some cases have
lost their entire stock.
IN compliance with the request of
many lovers of the game, my
SALOON has been RE-OPENED. .

on Hie other hand, philosophers in?
sist that the centro of the earth is a
j mass of fire-that tho poles of the
I earth will one day be at the eqnalor,
nnd that the sun is gradually fading!
Talk like this is very terrible; but,
pending such wholesale calamities, it
will ho as well for each member of
society to take care of his or her
health, and leave the rest to Provi
The end comes prematurely to nil
J who neglect the preservation of that
I inestimable blessing. Suffer liver
disease, dyspepsia, chronio constipa?
tion or any other ailment to take its
course unchecked, aud it will assured?
ly shorten life. It cannot be said
that the moans of protecting the sys?
tem against the predisposing causes
of disease are withheld. The con?
stitutions and physique of the least
robust may be so strengthened and
fortified by a course of HOSTET
TER'S STOMACH BITTERS as to
render them nil but iuvulnernable,
not only to the attacks of epidemic
disorders, but also to tho ordinary
complaints which prevail in all coun?
tries and at all seasons. If the im?
mense importance of PROTECTIVE
MEDICATION were universally under?
stood, this incomparable vegetable
antidote, which is already the most
popular tonio in the world, would
everywhere be classed among the
staples of life, and no family would
dare to be without it. The time may
arrive when this will be the case, for
every year adds hundreds of thou?
sands to the list of those who use it.
