ANARCHY IN ARYSSINIA.-A special
cable telegram to the New York
Herald, brings dates from Abyssinia
as late ns the 30th of April. Tho
effects of tho British expedition and
the death of King Theodore had been
to put the whole country in a state of
The chiefs, relieved from the rule
of Theodore, many of them taken
ont of prison by the British, had
raised armies against Gobazee, the
ruler preferred by Sir Charles Nap?
A singularly interesting fact is
stated. Among those rising against
Gobazee, was one Ali, ono of the
released chiefs. Gobazee's Genoral
in-Chief, (Mashesbas,) was sent
against him with a strong force, in?
cluding a number of bravo warriors
of the Wuldagallas tribe. As soon
(in tho engagement) as they carno in
front of Ali, they reversed their
spears, rushed to him with joy, and
afterwards fell upon Mnshesha's
army and assisted to defeat it. This
display of affection for their old
commander, Ali, is compnred to the
rushing of Ney's army to embrace
Queen Mustavellu, with a large
army, had possession of Magdala and
the ruins evacuated by the British.
The native priests declare that
Menolek, of Shosta, is the legitimato
King to succeed Theodorus, on the
Debra Tabor, or " Mount of Trans?
And y ot, to crown tho troubles of
the country, it was said the Egyp?
tians are about to enter in force, with
a view to its conquest.
This is certainly no flattering re?
sult of British iuvusion. Theodorus,
with all his cruelty, maintained better
order in Abyssinia than auy other
chief probably could have main?
LET US HEAR FROM MR. VAM?AX
nialiAM.- It is understood that the
lion. C. L. Vallaudighain, of Ohio,
the builder of th?.? Democratic Chica?
go peace platform of 1364, represents
a powerful section of the Western
Democracy, and that he threatens a
bolt, if a pair of war epaulets are put
upon tho Democratic Presidential
ticket. Now wo would respectfully
submit to Mr. Vallandigham that tho
peaco party of the war has nothing
more to do on that question; that its
occupation in opposition to tho war
is gone, aud that the only way to beat
the radicals, is to fight them with
their own weapons of the war, in
eluding tho Presidential ticket of
Chase and Dix. In tho next place
we think that if Mr. Vallandigham
would lead off in a patriotic pronuu
ciamcnto in favor of tho union of tho
Democracy and all tho opposition
olomcnts on this ticket, ho would do
much towards tho harmonious fusion
of his party of the West with the
party in tho East, nud thus mako
himself in truth and to some pur
poso, a great man in Israel.

MR. STANTON BOWED OUT.-Mr.
Stanton retires with the thanks of
Congress for his services as Secretary
of War, in fighting tho rebellion
during the war and in fighting Audy
Johnson since the war, and all bauds
aro satisfied, or ought to be-John?
son in getting rid of Stanton, tho

NOW IS THE TIME TO CLEAN8E OUT
thoso PERILOUS SPOTS, Pimples,
corrupt sores, which POLLUTE tho LIFE
of tho BLOOD, aud render your body a
lon th eeo me. tiling. They aro* tho precur?
sors of a diseased blood, and will assume
a much moro formidable shapo if allowed
to go on unchecked. Tho QUEEN'S DE?
LIGHT, ttie only real blood purifier that
has ever been invented, as thousands will
to-day attest, is offered to the afflicted as
a positivo remedy for all diseases flowing
from a vitiated condition of tho system.
TUE LIFE OF THE FLESH ls PURE
BLOOD. Upon this theory alono tho in?
ventor of the Queen's Doliglit establishes
tho great hygienic law, WITHOUT PURE
BLOOD NO FLESH IS FREE FROM DIS?
EASE. Tho Pale and Shrunken Forms,
Yellow Facos. Weak Stomachs, Diseased
Livers, Crippled Rheumatics, Nervous
Hypochondriacs, Dyspeptic Victims of
Headache, so common in this country, is
owing entirely to tho humors of tho blood.
Very many other diseases may bo traced to
bud blood, Scrofula or King's Evil, Erysi?
pelas, Exauthoma or Elevurc, a rash or
eruption on females; Blotches, Tetter,
Goitro or Swelled Neck, Syphilis and Sy?
philitic Sores, Struuious Ulcers, AC.
These cannot be cured without purifying
tho blood. Now as to tho romedy. There
is no other blood purifier that will accom?
plish such positive and extraordinary cures
as Hcinitsh's Queen's Delight. You may
take a barrel of extract Sarsaparilla, and
still you will not be cured; and, as a proof
of it, look around and yon will observo tho
country, throughout* its length and
breadth, is Hooded with compound Sarsa?
parillas, extracts and syrups, claiming to
bo blood purifiors, and yet wo see to-day
more evidence of impurity of tho blood
than over. Why is this? Simply because
these extracts and Sarsaparillas arc worth?
