The Reputed Diamond Fields.
A former resident of Arizona, who
is thoroughly familiar with the so-called
diamond regions, asserts that Arizona
diamonds are nothing more than pecu
liarly brilliant quartz cryst ils. Of these
he has repeatedly collected large quan
tities, for the amusement of the little
ones of his acquaintances, among whom
he has lavished incalculable wealth,
provided quartz crystals and diamonds
are synonymous. Even were the ex
travagant stories of the mineral wealth
of Arizona to be literally tiue, it would
be madness for any one to attempt to
reach the diamond region except in
company with an armed and abundantly
provisioned aravan. The country "is
completely barren, and swarms with
hostile savages. It any ma;, wishes to
risk his health and waste his time in
digging for diamonds, South Af rica can
be reached by him much more easily
than Arizona, and in South Africa it is
certain thiit diamonds have been found,
however few and far between such lucky
discoveries may have been.

" Even as a Catholic priest," he says,
''if I had left mv convent for the pur

its inalienable rights and duties, above
human laws, and especially above con

Editorial Notices are so common
that it is almost impossible for an editor
to express his honest opinion of the
merits of any article without being sus
pected of interested motives. This fact,
however, shall not deter us from saying
what we think of a new addition to the
Materia Medico to which our attention
has been recently directed. We refer
to Dr. J. Walker's California Vinegar
Bitters, a remedy which is making its
way into more families just now than all
the other advertised medicines put to
gether. Its popularity, a-j far as we can
judge, is not based on empty preten
sion. There seems to be no question
about the potency of its tome and alterative
properties, while it'poesesses the reat nega
tive recommendation of containing neither
alcohol nor mineral poison. That it is a specific
for Indigestion, Biliousness, Constipation, and
many complaints of nervous origin, we have
reason to know ; and we are assured on good
authority that as a general invigorant, regu
lating and purifying medicine, it has no equal.
It is stated that its ingredients (obtained from
the wilds of California) are new to the medical
world ; and its extraordinary effects certainly
warrant tho conclusion that it is a compound
of agents hitherto unknown. If popularity
any criterion, there can be no doubt of the
efficiency of the Vineqab Bittebs, for the sale
of tho article is immense and continually increasing.

sees breakers ahead across the water.
The strike of the English agricultural
laborers is by no means at an end, and
while these men, 600,000 in ndmber,
are moving for higher wages with the
alternative of no work, the prices of
coal, meat, iron, and many other things,
procurable only by work and wages,
are advancing, short crops, low wages,
high prices, dear coal, and a rapidly
approaching winter are causing a shud
der in Great Britain.
A complacent landlord of a Cincinnati
hash house, at breakfast one morning,
planted his thumb in his vest arm-hole,
leanded significantly DacK in nis cnair,
and said: "Gentlemen, where do you
think that beefstake comes from ? "
From near the horn," was the quaint
reply of one of the boarders. It is sin
gular that the landlord nasnt put any
conundrums to his boarders since.

It is not upon the healthy elements of the body that
worms exist, but upon the diseased humors and slimy .
deposits that breed these living monsters of disease. '

ries, throughout our entire country during the Summer
and Autumn, and remarkably so during seasons ol
unusual heat and dryness, are invariably accompanied
by extensive derangements of the stomach and liver, and
other abdominal viscera. There are always more or less
obstructions of the liver, a weakness and irritable state
of the stomach, and great torpor of the bowels, being
clogged up with vitiated accumulations. In their treat
ment, a purgative, exerting a powerful influence upon
these various organs, is essentially necessary. There is
no cathartic for the purpose equal to Dr. J. Waxickk's
Vinegar Bitters, as they will speedily remove the
dark-colored viscid matter with which the bowels are
loaded, at the same time stimulating the secretions of
the liver, and generally restoring the healthy functions
of the digestive organs.
