In all diseases affecting these organs,
whether they secret too much or too little
water; or whether they be afflicted with
stone oi gravel, or with aches and pains set

will give almost immediate relief when all

For Stomachs Out of Order.
No medicines will so effectually improve

remove all acidity occasioned either by in

For (be Board's Return.
The returning hoard has been roundly
abused for stealmg the electoral vote of
Louisiana. The astonishinc fact is now
disclosed that the returning board did
not, could not, with all its audacity, its
bitter animus, count out enough votes to
defeat the Tilden electors. Sixty-nine
polls were objected to and counted out
by the board, many on the flimsiest
pretexts. Against these, and these alone,
was there a word of evidence? The
other polls ere above suspicion. The
polls counted out, so the official docu
ments of the returning board declare.
contained 10, 2G9 democratic and 17C3
republican votes. The full returns from
a;l tbe polls and parishes in the state
show 83,859 votes for R. C. Wictlifle
the highest Tilden elector, and 77,174
votes tor W. 1 . Kellogg, the highest
Hayes elector. Dducting from this the
votes thrown out by the returning board
and those counted in by a clerical error
in Vernon, the vote forelectors (returning
board count) should be

Showing that Messrs Wicklifle, Seay
and . M'Etiety. democrat?, and Messrs
Leviestee, Brewster, .lonnon, i5urch and
Kelloesr, republicans, were elected pref
deslw.t electors, ouch would be the re
turii'3 of the state vote to-day if tbe re
turning board had insisted on in prac
tice, as it always has in words, that it
and it alone, were the returning ollicers
of the state of Louisiana ; that it, and it
alone, had the right to canvass, compil
and count out votes. As soon as the
state vote became known, the republicans
saw at once that it would be no easy
mattei to elect the Hayes electors. To
assist the returning board in its work
the supervisors of registration were in
structed to omit as many polls as pos-
si Die from their report on any pretense,
Only seven supervisors were lound nn
scrupulous enough to carry out this
dirty order, and these men, almost every
one of them under indictment ior some
offense, threw out enough polls to elect
all the Hayes electors. The returning
board alone did not count in the Hayes
electors: it was Clover, eazie, Ledet
and Backers who did the dirty work that
changed the vote of this state. . These
men omitted from their report to the
returninc board thirteen polls; con
taininer two thousand nine hundred
democratic votes. They have never ex
piained to the board, or to tbe people
whv these polls were omitted ; never at
tempted to give any reasons or explana
tions therefore. The returning board
counted out enough votes to reduce the
maioritv of three democratic electors
from seven thousand to a lew iiumirea
but it was the supervisors, who omitted
twenty nine hundred more votes, who
finished the work, defeated the Tilden
electors and gave the state to Hayes. It
is not claimed by any one tnat uiese
supervisors had this tight. "They ore
onen to prosecution." said Wells, "for
their conduct in not returning pons;
but xre can not compel them to obey. CSo
into the courts againbt them." Here,
then, are a lot of disreputable characters,
one not a citizen of the state, one a
keeper of a snake show, another an ex-
Doliceman. etc.. illegally changing the
result of the state by omitting polls with
out any known reason against them, and
without any right to do so ; yet there is
no remedy. Ibe democrats appealed to
the returning board to correct this evil.
For the first time tho board lound it-eil
powerless. It could make presidents.
governors, and legislatures : it was
amenable and responsible to no human
court, but with tally-sheets, poll-lists,
votes and returns before it, it could not
correct an outrageous and acknowledged
illegal proceeding of a cheat and petty
gambler. It is about time that the
northern radical press dropped the
story about mtimidation. The records
of the returning board of the state of
Louisiana will Ehew that with every poll
at which it is said, thought, euppected,
or imagined, that there was any in-
.. . . .T x ai a
umiaauon or irreguianiies, inrown out.,
tb ee of the Tilden electors are elected.
The count of the returning board doe
not defeat them. To the scandalous,
illegal conduct of disreputable supervi
sors, Mr. Hayes owes whatever claim he
may have to the vote of Louisiana.

Will you be so kind as to publirh a
brief article on the next congress, giving

New Hampshire elects her three rep

the election of congressmen of 1875 the
democrat carried the first and third dis
tricts, but last month aU three gave re
publican majorities, 815, l.S;59 and 818
respectively. Allowing all threeof them
to the republicans, the democrats will
have a majority of three, which isenough
to secure the organization of the hous?.

In Colorado the republican, candidate

October was valid. In the lDurth Cali

one majority; another electa Wiggintou

contest over the third Massachusetts.
These we think th only districts where
changes will be made, as in other cases
as those of Metcalf (Rep.) in the third
Missouri, and llertzell (Dem.) in the

therefore Bafely democratic by "from

Ihal to fjx?ak of the subject all,
and will try to indicate summarily
what my own poor private views upon it
In the first place, then, for fifty years
back my clear lielief about the Russians
has been that they are a pood and even
noble element in Eurcpe. Conspicuously
they possess the talent of obedience, of
silently following orders given, which in
the universal celebration ot ballot-.oox,
divine freedom, etc., will be found an
invaluable and peculiar gift. Ever since
l'eter the Great's appearance among them
they haye been in hteady progress of de
velopment. In our own time they have
done signal eervice to God and man in
drilling into order and peace anarchic
populations all over their side of the
world. The present czar of Itusia I
judge to be a strictly honest aud, just
man, and, in short, my. belief is that the
Kussians are called to do great things in
the world, and to lie a conspicuous benefit,
directly and indirectly, to their fellow
men. To undertake a war against Kusia on
behalf of the Turk, it is evident to me
would be nothing short of insanity ; and
has become, we may fondly hope, impos
sible for any minister, or prime minister,
that exists among us. Twenty years ago
we already had a mad war in delence of
the Turk: a ma.s of the most hideous
and tragic stupidity, mismanagement,
and disaster (in spite of bravest fighting)
that England was ever concerned in
since I knew it ; a hundred millions ol
money and above sixty thousand vallirnt
lives were spent in the enterprise. ly
treaties of Paris, etc., the Turk was pre
served intact, binding tiimselt only to re
form his system of government, which
certainly of all things in the world needed
reform. And now, after twenty years ol
waiting, the Turk is found to have re
formed nothing nor attempted to reform
anything. Not to add that by bankrupt
finance he has swallowed a disastrous
tribute of many new millions I mm the
widows and orphans of England. As
finis to all which he has wound up by the
horrors of Bulgaria anil such savageries
as are without a parallel. With these
weighty aggravations the Turkish ques
tion returns upon us anew and demands
It seems to me that something very
different from war on his behalf is what
the Turk now pressingly needs fmui Eng
land and from all the world namely, to
be peremptorily informed ;hat we can
stand no more of his at tempts to oovem
Europe, and that he must qmua rimiiin
turn hi face to the eastward, lorever quit
this tide of the Hellespont, and
and give up his arrogant ideas ol govern
ing anybody but himseii.

As to tne temporary or preparatory

task it is to protect the chri.-tian subjects
inTurkey proper, will justly have a claim
to territorial looting in tue recovered
country. To England there is one vital
interest, and one only, that of securing
its road to India, which depend on

The English Xavy of the Future.
The recent experiments at fcpczzia
have shown that ftcel plates manage to
keep out the terrible missiles from the
one nunarea ton gun, aunougn tuo
metal gets fractured iu the operation,
and, if we contemplate still increasing
the platmg ot our vessels, steel will
probably replace iron iu future. Against
torpedoes steel has always proved to be
greatr protection than iron, and on
this account the change would also re
advisable. But the recnt preparations
of the admiralty seem to point "rather to
a belief in unauuored vessels, for of tbe
torty ships that were under construction
in the summer no fewer than thirty-six
were to b; unprotected with armor plat
ing. Twjof the finest of the e vcs-els,
the Iris and theJMercury, which are scarce
ly four thousand tons measurement, but
are, nevertheless, to be provided with
engines of no less than Eeven thousand
horse-power, will B"rve as fleet dispatch
vessels though the metal is not thick
enough to afford protection from very
heavy guns. The same may be taid of
the six steel corvot tcs, which were com
menced in tho summer, and which are
also considered unarmored vessels, their
strong point being not so much their
armament us their speed. At present,
however, we are at a stand.-till in regard
to ocean-going men of-war, and we may
in a few years lie seriouslj behind other
nations if we do not speedily come to
some resolution on the subjtct, and pro
ceed with the construction of one kind
of vessel or another.- -Jjouflon Lailu

A lecture was delivered in the Cify
hall. Glasgow, on Thursday night by
Sir Wy ville Thomson on the condition of
the antartic regions. Sir William Thom
son presided. Sir Wy ville Thomson said
he intended to direct attention to some
of the peculiarities in the physical condi
tions of the antartic regions, so as to put
him in a better position to contrast them
with those of the arctic regions. On conr-
ing near the area of the icebergs in the
southern hemisphere, the bottom of tho
sea was found to consist of clay mixed
with very fine particles of gravel, and in
many cases mixed with larere pebbles
and sometimes witli large masses of
stone. There was no doubt that all
those dejiosit were dae to Iceberg, the
matter fallimr to the bottom as ihcv
melted. Thetiertrs thev saw to the. aoutfi
and breaking down and melting a littlo
lurtmr to the north were prismatic
blocks riven from th edge of the great
antartic ice sheet. The ttratLicatiou of
the icebergs, he believed, wa due to suc

level surface. Takin- "

night at 8:30, going northeastward. Ao
Bloomington the aerolite presented it
elisk three times tho apparent size of th

tlie roar caused by the pa-sage of tb j
great mans of matter through the deriM
atmosphere of the earth was alarmingly
audible, nod the tremendous friction t
which the surface parts were subjet t
caused continuous siijierficial disin

points of light tinged .with every hue,
and presenting a very beautiful pht

by a sudden illumination of the atmos
phere, accompanied, in the latter plac i,
by a detonation louder and sharper than
