China appears to bo'juet now somewhat;
in the state of mind of the Irishman at
Dounyhrook fair, who wanted some one
to tread on his coat fairs that he might
have a taste of a scrimmage. Not content
with recent outrages at Chin Kiaug, for
which, however, the authorities have
made some kind of apology, the Chinese
officials have got up a difficulty with
Spain in relation to the traffic in Coolies,
and rt contest with the United States
Consul General, nt Shnnghue, in refer?
ence to the manner in which he exercised
his official functions in a recent case that
came before him for examination and
settlement. In the meantime, Chinese
smugglers are invading the rights of
citizens of other countries, and the home
authorities will not move in the matter
to enforce their authority. In addition
to these misunderstandings with other
nations, China has n half-covered quar?
rel with England, which may produce
serious results at any moment, ltussia
also sits like a vulture on the Northern
borders of the Chinese Empire, waiting
for the proper moment to swoop down
and fix her talons in the body of her
victim. Thus menaced from all quar?
ters, and with an open rebellion among
a portion of her producing population,
the motto of China should be peace.
She is in no condition to provoke quar?
rels with other nations with safety to her
national position among the powers of
Asia. That continent will shortly be the
theatre of most important events. The
current of European action is moving
in that direction, and Central Asia may
soon resound with the clash of arms. If
that day comes the great wall of China
will not hold back the contestants, as it
once did the lightly clad and poorly
armed Tartar hordes.
It is truly wonderful, the variety and
ingenuity of the conveniences for the
desk and office?pens of varied patterns,
inkstands possessing unmberless ad?
vantages, letter files, each ono the best,
cnvelopesjof sizo and qualities infinite.
It is almost bewildering to enter the
large Broad street store of Walker,
Evans & Cogswell, in Charleston, and
see the number of tbeso attractions.
Here you find the largest stationery
stock South of Baltimore, and you only
have two troubles?first, sufficient cash;
and, second, the difficulty in deciding
among the many things oller? d, each
equally suitable to your wants. M7t

COLUMBIA. S. C, WEDNESDAY MORNING,
The symptoms of Liver ComplainUare
uneasiness and pain in the side. Some?
times the pain is in the shoulder, and is
mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach
is affected with loss of appetite and sick?
ness, 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 disensc, r.nd
at other times, very few of them; but the
Liver is generally the organ most in?
SIMMONS' LIVER REGULATOR!
*Tor 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 stiffering, and many a
dollar in time and doctors' bills.
After forty years' trial, it is Btill receiving the most unqualified testi?
monials of its virtues from persons of the highest character and re?
sponsibility. Eminent physicians commend it as the most
for Constipation, Headache, Pain in the Shoulders, Dizziness, Sour
Stomach, bad tasto in tho 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 yon feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, have frequent headache,
Mouth tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongue Coated, you are stiffer?
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 seat of the
disease, and 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 rcmedv iu MALARIOUS

"I occasionally use, when my condition requires it, Dr. Simmons'
Liver Regulator, with good effect."?Hon. Alex. H. Stevens.
"Your Regulator bos been in use in my family for some time, and I
am persuaded it is a valuable addition to the medical science."?Gov.
J. Gill Shorter, Alabama.
"I have used tho Regulator in my famil}' for the past seventeen
5rears. I can safely recommend it to the world as the best medicine I
lave ever used for that class of diseases it purports to cure."?II. F.
"Simmons' Liver Regulator has proved a good and efficacious medi?
