The national debt has been reduced $250,

000,000 less The storm that recently
ravaged Halifax, N. 8., and the whole north
eastern coast, was the most terrible that has
visited that country in years. Wharves, rail
ways, bridges, barns, and houses have been
washed away or beaten down by the storm in
every direction. Vessels have been wrecked
by scores in. Halifax harbor. Over fifty
are ashore in Cow Bay, and fully one hun
dred are believed to be stranded on the shores
of Cape Breton. The crops have not suffered
less terribly. - Within a radius of 200 miles all
the fruit trees are stripped. The loss of life
seems miraculously small, as is shown by the
fact' that but one soul perished' in the fifty
shipwrecks at Cow Bay.
Further details of the disastrous gale on
the Nova Scotia coast have been received. The
loss of life, which at first was reported insig
nificant, turns out to be very great, some
estimates putting the figure as high as If 0.
It is said 40 dead bodies have drifted ashore
on the north side of Prince Edward's Island,
and at other points bodies are washing up on
the beach. It is reported that 40 American
fishing vessels were lost off the north side of
Prince Edward's Island, and that only 18 lives
were saved out of all the crews, but none of
the late arrivals credit the report. There
are over 100 vessels ashore at different
parts of Cape Breton, and 17 are ashore at
Louisburg. The schooner Ocean Wave went
to pieces on Cape Hogan, all hands perishing.
Another schooner lost two men, and
a brig went down at her anchorage
in Carriboo cove, with all on board. Other
vessels and crews are known to be lost. It is
estimated that over 100 buildings have been
destroyed in Canso and vicinity, entailing a
loss of over 9100,000. At Canso every ship in
the harbor is high and dry. Every wharf and
fishing establishment has been Bwept away,
and debris lines the entire shore. The public
ball there is a heap of splinters. All the
buildings, public and private, are more or leBS
injured. The Catholic chapel is a ruin. Out
of a fleet of over 300 fishing vessels, only 20
remain. A schooner from Labrador spoke an
American fishing schooner in the straits of
CanBO, which reported 30 American
fishing schooners ashore at Pleasant Bay.
At Charlottetown, Prince Edward's Island,
the storm was very destructive to life and
property. The destruction of fishing boats is
unprecedented. Six square-rigged vessels
were wrecked on the northern coast, and the
crews of two of them were drowned. Four
American fishing vessels were also wrecked,
and the crews all lost. Dead bodies and
wrecked material are floating ashore daily. The
wharves and bridges throughout the island
are damaged. A number of buildings were
blown down. The schooner Bonnie Jean was
lost with all hands, at Cape Cavendish. The
ship Chuscougas, timber laden, for Liverpool,
is a total Iobb at Cave Head. The crow were
saved. The Collector of Customs at Magda
len Island reports 50 British and American
vessels ashore there.

The following story is told of a cer
tain young Viscount, who had exhaust
ed the patience of a generous father, and
had failed to soften him sufficiently for
the payment of the last batch of bills.
The young Viscount was at the fete to
the Shah at the opera house, viewing
existence, and the gala in particular,
with a jaundiced eye, when a brilliant
idea occurred to him. He flew out and
drove home. " My father," he cried,
" embrace me ! Your son has just been
named by the Shah a chevalier of the
lion and the sun." " Impossible ! "
said the father, flushing with paternal
pride. " Indeed, yes," said the son,
"here is my patent," displaying to the
curious eyes of his parent the pro
gramme of the opera, which had been
printed in Persian, "Bless you, my
son,"" exclaimed the Count ; "I will pay
your debts, and I offer you this trifle of
pocket money," handing him notes to
the amount of ten thousand francs. The
proud parent has not yet been enlightened.
Valuation of New York City.
New York aircears to double its as
sessed valuation every fifteen years. At
least .that has been the rule, starting
from 1841. Going thirty years further
back, the increase was still more rapid.
In 1811 New York had fairly distanced
Philadelphia in the number of its popu
lation, and started as the first city of
the Union, with a population of 96,000,
and an assessed valuation of $25,000,000.
By 1841 the population had nearly quad
rupled, while the assessed valuation had
increased tenfold, amounting then to
$251,194,020. After an interval of fif
teen years in 1856 the population had
all but exactly doubled, and the assessed
valuation had doubled also amounting
to $511,740,492. The next fifteen years I
added only 50 per cent, to the popula
tion, but doubled the valuation of real
and personal property. In spite of sun
dry obvious obstacles to a steadily main
tained rate of inciease, it is not too
much to anticipate that by 1886 the
gross-assessment of property on Manhat
tan Island will be over $2,000,000,000.
Stealing Heaven's Itveby. The

rum potions out of the market. That
famous combination of the finest medi

adopted it as their Standard Specific.
The various rum bitters have gone down
before this pure vegetable antidote like
tenpins before a well-aimed ball. The

Nature's Appeals for Help.
Every indication of debility and exhaustion is a
mute appeal of Nature for medicinal aid to arrest
the progress of decay. How are these silent ap
peals of physical weakness to the resources of the
healing art usually met? Too often, unfortunate
ly, the drugs prescribed aggravate the symptoms.
Whoever recommends drastic purgatives, or min
eral salivants, or poisonous alkaloids, under such
circumstances, is an aUy of the enemy and an
enemy of the patient. Whoever, on the contrary,
advises the broken down and desponding sufferer
to resort to that peerless vegotable invigorant,
Hostettcr's Stomach Bitters, for aid and comfort,
is a truo philanthropist. It is safe to say that
there never was an instance in which such advice
was given and accepted without the happiest re
sults. From the very depths of weakness and
despondency thousands have been restored to
vigor, health and cheerfulness by the renovating
operation of this wholesome stimulant and altera
tive. All its medicinal ingredients are remark
able for their sanative properties, and in combina
tion form an absolute specific for indigestion, liver
complaint, nervous affections, rheumatism, inter

weakness, and every species of disorder incident
to change of season or climate. The stimulative
element of this invaluable protective and restora
