A despatch from Ironton, Ohio,
to the Chicago Tribune, says: "By
accident, Captain John S. George,
a lawyer of this city, discovered,
yesterday, a specimen of peculiar
ore, which was found in one of the
rolling-mill coal-bins among coal
dug near tho Ironton tunnel, five
miles from this city, which, on ex?
amination, proved to be a consol?
idated lump of pure. diamonds, j
weighing net about twenty-nine |
ounces-, and is valued at ?400,000.
Many such lumps have been found
here before by tho minors, but
were thrown aside as worthless.
Steps will be taken at once to se?
cure rights, options, &c. Tho
matter, has created intense excite?
ment among those who have ex?
amined the specimen."
A shadow comes, upon the efful?
gent yarns about the Black Hills
gold.discoveries. Gold which par?
ties claimed to have brought from
the bills was examined by some old
miners at Sioux City the other day,
who declared that it bad been dug
out of the ground for several years,
and bore evidences of having been!
carried about for sensational pur
, poses. This announcement caused1
great 'excitement among parties
who were preparing to go to the
gold ; fields, and the men who
brought th? "specim?n" got out of |
toWn'as quickly as they could.

burglars Were to break into his
house some night to steal every?
thing he hod, he would turn to his

cakes.'/ "Ma" would be very apt
to. drop some poison in the coffee,
however. 1 She is not quite so emo

The symptoms of Liver Complaint are
uneasiness and pain in the side. Some?
times tho pain is in tho shoulder, and is
mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach
is affected with loss of appetite and sick
Iness, bowels in general costive, and
sometimes alternating with lax. The
head is troubled with pain, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable loss of
memory, accompanied with painful sen?
sation of having left undone something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
above symptoms attend the disease, and
at other times, very few of them; but the
