TUESDAY EVENING, APEIL 12.
Struck ry a Steamer.?Wm. Hillier, a
boot and 9hoe merchant, of Norfolk, was
drowned Sunday night off Craney Island
li^ht. Mr. Hillier, with two other friends,
was out sailing in a small boat when the
steamer Old Point, of the Norfolk and New
York line, on her 7 o'clock trip from Nor?
folk, collided with the boat, striking it with
her paddle wheel, which was motionless at
the time. The sail boat immediately sank,
and Mr. Hillier, who was standing in the
bow, from some reason failed to grasp one i
of the lines thrown to him from the steamer.
His two companions were rescued. The
bodv was recovered yesterday oil Sewell's
Point. The deceased was much respected,
and leaves a wife and large family of child?
Death ok a Kailroad OFFICIAL.?Col.
E. C. Portlack, auditor of the Shenandoah
Valley Kailroad, with headquarters at Ro

Arkansas regiment. Hi3 remains were
taken to Petersburg for interment, and were
met at the depot by a large number of
r.rominent citizens, among whom were ex
Snator Mahone aud ex-Gov. Cameron.
"I-n'l that Mrs. Holmes? I thought the
doctors gave her up. She looks well now.*1
"Shew well. After the doctors irave up
her case she tried Dr. Pierce's 'Favorite
Prescription' and began to gtt better riebt
au ay. I heard her say not long ago. that
she hadn't felt so well in twenty years. She
does her own work aud says that life seems
worth living, at last. 'Why,' said she. 'I
feel aa if I bad been raised from the dead,
almost." Thus do thousands attest the
marvelous efficacy of this God-given reme?
dy for female weakness, prolapsus, libera?
tion, leucorrhoea, morning sitkness, weak?
ness of stomach, tendency to cancerous di?
sease, nervous prostration, general debility
and kindred nil'ectious.

The Gazette ia now the oldest paper lc
the State, and with few exceptions the old?
est in the country, and its usefulness has
been demonstrated and appreciated during
! the eighty seven years of its exister.ce. Ia
j its columns has always been found a mirror
I of passing events, and the careful chroni
' cling of the history of what is going on in the
i world has ever been its aim. It is always
I welcomed in the household, while ir. the

The Gazette has hotter facilities lor i b
taining news than any paper outside of the
national capital. Situated a* it is so close
to the great centre of news, it enjoys daily
tho benelit of the Associated Press
patches from every part of the world ; becce
its patrons can road from its columns in the
eveuing what has transpired that day in
every portion of our own domain as well a-;
from every part of the habitable globe.
Consequently it is an every day occurrence
for the Gazette to publish telegrams from
the various European capitals twelve and
fifteen hours earlier than the morning pa?
Another feature that serves to make the
Gazette a great desideratum with mer?
chants is its afternoon market reports from
New York, Baltimore, Chicago and other
The local department furnishes a lull and
complete history of everything that occurs
in and near the city, and this feature will,
as ever, receive careful attention.
Correspondence from Washington, Kich
mond and every section of the State, is pub?
lished regularly, aud all events of iutere.it
occurring within the bounds of the Com?
monwealth are to be found in the columns
of the Gazette.
The Gazette's circulation is steadily in
creasing, especially among people who con?
sult its advertising columus before purchas?
ing. That this is self-evideut may bo infer?
red from the fact that a large country edi?
tion?nearly as large as tbedaily--is sent
all over this section of country three times
a week, and is read by thousand*, most of
whom send here or to contiguous cities to
make purchases. The advantages of ad?
vertising in the Gazette are, therefore, ap?
bates of subscription.
