A Sad Cask of Suicide.?The vil?
lage of Woodhull, Steuben County,
N. Y., was greatly excited on
Thursday, by the report that Mrs.
John Farris, daughter of the Rev.
Joseph Thomas, of the Woodhull
Presbyterian Church, had commit?
ted suicide, near Watkins' Glen,
by throwing herself in front of a
locomotive on the Northern Cen?
tral Railway. The dccoasod, who
was only twenty-four years of age,
a few months since made the ac?
quaintance of John Farris, a dry
goods clerk, who came from Ithaca
to Woodhull. Ho wooed and won
the girl, and a few weeks since they
were married. On arriving at
Watkins' on a wedding tour, and
spending a few days, Farris' man?
ner changed. He became intoxi?
cated daily, and finally he pushed
his wife from him, and to her hor?
ror coolly told her that she was not
Iiis wife, as he had been previously
married, and his wife was living at
Ithaca, and with this he took his
departure, leaving the distressed
young woman to the cold charity
of the world. She was too proud
to return home, and Bought service
as a domestic in a family at Wat
kins', where she remained until the
evening she committed suicide.
The Rev. Kevin Woodside,
Brooklyn clergyman, who got into
a very unpleasant predicament
through feminine babble, was fully
exonerated from blame by his pres?
bytery last week. Mr. Woodside
loved a young lady, who married a
worthy young man. The young
man died in about a year, his wife,
in the meantime, having given!
birth to a1 child. Unfortunately,
fier marriage had been surrepti?
tiously performed by a colored mi?
ldster, and was not generally an?
nounced: The baby was straight-1
way attributed to the Rev. Mr.
Woodside, who was known to have
been in love with the girL The
fact of her marriage, however, was
established, and Mr. Woodside is
now all right It is unsafe for a
clergyman to dwell in Brooklyn.
The case of Carruth, the New
Jersey editor who was shot in the
head by Landis, a few weeks ago,
is certainly a curious one. The
ball penetrated the brain so far
that it could not be removed, and
his death was looked for as a mat?
ter of course. Contrary to general
expectation, he is said to be reco?
vering, and is able to walk outl
doily. The ball is still imbedded I
in the head. As he has been treat
ed by homoepaibic physicians, the j
school of medicine to which they'
belong will doubtless consider this
result as a very tall feather in their j
The continuance of the strike of i
the Pennsylvania coal miners is]
very seriously affecting the coast?
wise commerce of Pennsylvania. I
The Ledger says that were the coal
trade of that city at its usual vigor
at the present time, there would be
100,000 to 150,000 tons of coal
sent by water weekly, either by
sea or through the various canals,
whilst now the shipment will pro?
bably not exceed 5,000 to 10,000 j
tons weekly, and that contains no
anthracite worth mentioning.

Tho symptoms of Liver Compluinfare
uneasiness and pain in the side. Some?
times the Jpain is in tho shoulder, and is
mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach
is affected with loss of appetite and sick
lne.su, bowels in general costive, and
sometimes alternating with lax. The
head is troubled with pain, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable loan of
memory, accompanied with painful sen?
sation of having left undono something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of, the
I above symptoms attend the disease, and
at other times, very few of them; but the
Liver is generally the organ most in?
For all Diseases of the Liver, Stomach and Spleen !
IT is evidently a Family Medicine, and by being kept ready for im?
mediate resort, will save many an hour of buffering, und many a
dollar in time and doctors' bills.
After forty years' trial, it is still receiving the most unqualified testi?
monials of its virtues from persons of the highest character and re?
sponsibility. Eminent physicians couimi nd it as tho most
for Constipation, Headache, Pain in the Shoulders. Dizziness, Sour
Stomach, bad taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of the
Heart, Pain in the region of the Kidneys, Despondency, Gloom and
forebodings of evil: all of which are the offspring of a diseased Liver.
If you feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, kave frequent headache,
Mouth tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tonpse Coated, you arc suffer?
ing from Torpid Liver, or "Biliousness," and nothing will cure you so
speedily and permanently.
The Liver, the largest organ in the body, is generally the Heat of the
disease, nnd if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretchedness
and DEATH Will ensue.
Armed with this ANTIDOTE, all climates and changes of water and
food may be faced without fear. As a remedy in MALARIOUS
