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

kindnevs, these Pills should betaken accord

will give almost immediate relief when all
other means have failed.
For Stomachs Out of Order. .
No medicines will so effectually improve
tbe tones of the stomach as these Pills; they
remove all acidity occasioned either, by in

AN INTERESTISU EXHIBIT.
The; Condition r Onr National Com
aterre sad Mnsnres.
Mr. Lucien J. Barnes of the bureau ot
statistics, has recently prepared tables
showing the movement oi specie and bul
lion and merchandise between the
United States and foreign countries for
a series of years. It appears that at no
former period has the foreign commerce
of the country been in such a healthy
and favorable condition. In 1874, for
the first time in over ten years, the
balance of trade in merchandise was in
favor of the' United Htates to the amount
of $19,000,000, specie value, and lor the
fiscal year ending June, 1876, the
balance was nearly $80,000,0000, specie
value. The most favorable exhibit ha
been nearly doubled during the three
quarters of the present year. During
the past seven years we have imported
$550,000,000 more merchandise than
during the previous ten years, and $1,
122,000.00 more than for the ten years
from 1S50 to 18G0.
During the past seven years we ex
ported nearly $1,000,000,000 more ot
merchandise in gold values than for the
previous ten years, and $1,140,000,000
more than form 1850 to 1860 ; but our
imports of merchandise for the past
seven years have been $343,706,481 in
excess of our exports of mercantile com
modities. With the discovery and development
of the California gold mines, we began
to export specie and bullion in con
siderable quantities, and have exported
more than we received during every
year since then, with the single excep
tion of the year endinj? June, 1861, for
which year we received $16,548,531
more than we exported. although, during
that deende (1860 to 1870), we exported
$66.256,262 and imported only $170,
581,398. For the past seven years we have ex
ported $536,352,611 of specie and bul
lion and imported but $148,206,133
l-ast year we exported $40,000,000 more
than we received from abroad, but with
the balance of trade in merchandise turn
ing largely in our favor. We are this
year retaining our usual aunual ship
ments of coin, and actually received
specie from abroad iu excels of our ex
portation of the precious metals. If the
prevent very flattering prospects are ful
filled for the remainder of the present
fiscal year, Mr. Barnes thinks the
balance of trade in merchandise will not
be short of $200,000,000. in specie va lue

peculiar. Some ten or fifteen Mormons
would get around the man they wanted
to drive away, each with a keen ground

Kate Elkrslie 6at by the window that
dreary November day, her chin resting
on her hands, and her eyes hxed mourn
fully on the opposite roof, where a colony
of dust-colored sparrows were pluming
their wings. She was a bright, regular
featured brunette, with large brown eyes
and very dark hair, her figure slender as
a reed and quite as graceful.
She looked up languidly as the door
opened, and Emily, her junior by two
years, came in.
Emily Ellerslie was not at all pretty.
No one would have vouchsafed her a
econd glance in the street; no poet
would ever have been stimulated to rhy
metic rhapsodies over her gray-blue eyes
or brown tresses; yet when "you came
face to face with her you could not but
confess that she was very pleasant to look
upon, with wholesome pink cheeks, a
complexion entirely independent of " rose
balm," or "cream of pearls," and pretty,
regular teeth, that shone brightly when
ever she smiled or spoke.
"Good news.Kate!" she said, cheerily,
taking off her hat as if it were an encum
brance to the pretty head. "I've a
whole dozen plain shirts ta make."
Kate looked distastefully down upon
the bundle of ' plain work" which her
sister tossed gleefullv into her lap.
"Shirts!" she sighed. "Oh, Emily,
who would ever have thought we should

" Shirts aren't disagreeable to make,"
said Emily cheerfully. "All we have to

" You never had any aristocratic !

" Five shillings is a very handy sum
now, Kale," said Emily, as she went pa
tiently down on her knees to pick up the
scattered rolls of work.
" But it's a shame," went on Kate,
flushed and indignant, " that I, who was

She paused, with tbe hot current of
words yet on her tongue, as a knock came
to the door.
" It's only Mr. Ilarlev, in the next
room," said Emily, as she rose to her
feet. " I know his knock.' . '
Mr. Harley was a tall, fresh-looking
young man, with bright hazel eyes and a
emoctb, broad forehead, who had re
cently engaged the one vacant apartment
on the fourth story of the bouse in
Bland street. " A literary gentleman,"
Mrs. Parley had called him ; while Mr.
Johnson asserted, with less elegance, that
he was " owl editor ot one of them pa
pers that never tells tlie truth."
Poor people aeeimilate more readily
than those who surround themselves with
the barriers of form and ceremony; and,
in one week of their neighborly prox
imity, Mr. Ilarley and-the Miss EUeis

" Tbe loop has come off my necktie
again," Mr. Ilarley began, apologetic

Emily smiled and nodded as she
threaded her needle with black silk, and
put on a thritty-looxing tbimble.
" Is anything the matter, Miss Kate?1

sister's flushed cheeks and discomfited

" but the old story jpverty aad humil

Mr. Harley winced a little, and no
wonder, Emily thought ; her sister had
spoken with unrestrained vehemence.
"Kate, Kate:" she said softly, "you
dqn't consider. He is not to blame be
cause the law has given him what was
rightfully his own." .
"He is, I say!" hurst out Kale, but
then she repressed herself. "Give me
the shirts, Emily," she said, resignedly.
" We can't starve. Now the footstool
and the work-basket. And just draw
that curtain ; the sun isshining in enough
to dazzle forty pairs of eyes."
, Patiently Emily trudged hither and
thither for her Bister, only too glad that
the storm of Kate's temper was tempo
rarily averted by Mr. JIarley 8 presence
The young riian, quietly Observant of all
that transpired around him, began to
think that, after all, Kate was not so
beautiful as he had at first supposed.
Emily had the sweetest, more Madonna

" Emily always was a drudge,,' said
Miss Ellerslie, contemptiously. " She

So Emily did the work of the con
tracted little room, washed and ironed
Kate's laces, arranging her sister's lux
uriant hair, sat up at night to finish the
sewing Kate had thrown aside " because
it made her nervous," hours before, and
was sunny and happy through it all,
while Kate sighed over her fat -, and
persuaded herself that she was the most
wretched of created beings.
And one day Mr. Harley astonished
her out of her equanimity by proposing
to marry her.
" Upon--my word ! " ejaculated she ;
" the young man must have a very good
opinion ot himself! Ul course you said

Emily hung her head until she looked
like a sweet pea vine that has been ex

" What on earth could have induced

with both hands imploringly uplitted.
" Because I love him : " said imily,
plucking up courage.

Circassia's Struggle Against Russia.
The cable dispatch that the porte had
resolved to send Shamyl, a younger son
of the great Shamyl, to the Caucasus,
recalls the most striking phase of the
continual march fer a hundred years of
the Russians to the lands to the south ef
them. In this march the brave and hardy
Circassians have always been the lions
in their path. After a most romantic
history, in which the names of Prome
theus. Deucalion. Pvrrha. the Argonauts.
Sesostris, and the Egyptians, the Scy
thians, Mithndates, 1'ompey and I rajah,
the Arabs, Tartars and Turkomans figure,
Ciscassia, in 1705, ovorthrew the rule of
the Khans of theCrimea, and becam?the
allies of the Turkish sultan. In 1739
the Circassians were declared independ
ent, bnt they have always retained an
affection for their old masters. In 1781
Russia acquired the Kuban border, and
for eighty years afterward waged a war
fare on the bold mountaineeis, whose
heroic struggles to maintain their freedom
are not excelled in tne nistory oi any
people. In 17S4 the Turks built the
fortress of Anapa, and thence incited the
Circassians to insurrection against the
Russians. Tbe fortress was captured by
the Russians iu 1807, butfive years later,
by the treaty of Bucharest, waa restored
to the Jurk, who availed themselves
of the peace that followed to. convert
the Circassians to Islamism. In
1829 Anapa again fell into
the hands of the Russians, and
with it the country. The Circassians,
however, refused to recognize the see
sion, and then began the struggle which
has made them famous, and gave to the
world one of the greatest leaders Sha
myl, the father of the young man whom
the Turks now propose to Fend to his na
tive land to stir uphis countrymen against
their historic enemies and oppressors.
Sndmvl, the elder, was born about 1797,
and died at Medina. Arabia, in 1871.
He first appears in 113. as a subordinate
in a religious war against the northern
infidels. In 1834 he became a leader, and
organized his grand warfare against
Russia, which lasted for nearly thirty
years. His first victory was over Gene
ral Ivelitch, in 1839, at Akulgo. His
forces were supposed to be crunhed and
himself killed, but he reappeared soon
afterward and renewed tbe struggle.
The fighting at Akulgo was of the most
desperate character, and for three days
tbe conflict was band to baud. After
five years of guerilla narfare the Czar
Nicholas sent a large army into tbe
country, which Shamyl opposed with
one of equal numbers. Tne Russian
campaign was foiled, and a new plan- of
action was introduced against the brave i
mountaineers. All attempts to bring

them to a pitched battle, in which they
had .shown themselves the equals, if not
the superiors, ot the Kussians, were
abandoned, and detachments sent
against . isolated spots. Wherever a
footing was obtained, there a tort was
erected. But this plan also failed. ' The
Circassians kept uo their offensive opera
tions, and in 1846 they swept the chain of
.Russian ion ana retumea toineir moun
tains laden With plunder. This victory
was repeated In 1848 and 1850, and in
1853 they drove the Russiais back from
eight leagtres rf territory. During the
Crimean war Kussia bad her hands lull
elsewhere, and Shmyl was compar
atively inactive. As soon as the treaty
of Paris was signed the czar reopened
the war. Shamyl held out heroicllv for
three years, but the capture of Veden
in April, 1859, virtually decided tbe con
test. Shamyl retired to tbe mountain
fastness of Ghunib, near the Caspian sea.
Here on September 6tb, after one of the
most desperate conflicts of history, he
was forced to surrender, and carried
prisoner to Moscow and St. Petersburg.
With this battle all active efforts to main
tain the independence of Circas'ua
ceased. "Shamyl was treated with dis
tinguished courtesy by the Czar, who
settled a pension of 10,000 roubles upon
rbim. In 1870 the old hero repaired to
'the shrine of Mahomet, where he died
the following year. Although subject
to Russia, the Circassian! have not aban
doned their hopes of freeing their country
with the assistance of their old allies,
the Turks. In 1856 they sent
a deputation to Constantinople
imploring the sultan's protection ;
in 1862 a deputation arrived in London
and presented a petition to the queen
protesting against Russian rule and the
right of Turkey to cede tneir country as
she had done nearly thirty vears before,
and in 1852, during a visit of tbe czar
Alexander II. to the Caucasus, a delega-
tion of Circassians waited upon him,
praying to be left in possession of their I
country, and promising to live on
terms of peace and amity with the
Russians. The emperor refused, and
offered them the alternative of war or
emigration. The mountaineers chose the
former, but their great leader was sadly
missed, and after a year's fighting they
submitted, and there was a great emigra
tion of about 200,000 persons to Turkey.
1 he Circassians yet remaining in the
Caucasus are still discontent and ripe for
revolution, and if young Shamyl have
but half the heart ot his father, the
LRassian armies now operating in Asia

THE TRADE IX CEREALS.
The Total Prodnctlon or Karope Tlie
Crops anal Imports of 17(1.
According to very careful statistical
exhibits recently made by the French
government, the total cereral production
of Europe amounts at present to an
average of 4,994,000,000 bushels per
annum. Of this Russia alone furnishes
1,606,000,000 bushels or nearlyone-third
of the whole; Germany, 742 500,000
bushels; France, 687,50000 but-hels ;
and Austria, 550,000,000 bushels. The
production of this country is set down at
1,537,250.000 bushels, or thirty-nine
and a half bushels to each inhabitant,
while Europe, with a population of
297,000,000, produces only about sixteen
and a halt bushels per bead. 1 be follow
ing table gives the amount of cereals per
inhabitant produced by the various
states of Europe:

According to the most moderate csti
mate, the average quantity of cereals
necessary for the consumption of each
inhabitant is 14 9-10 bushels per annum,
and, therefore, all the states that come
aiter Sweden upon the list have to
obtain grain supplies from other coun
tries. In this country three-fifths of the
cereal production consists of corn. In
Europe oats predominate, and Yiext in
quantity come wheat, rye, barley and
corn. Russia, Prussia, and France pro
duce large wheat crops, and the two first
are our greatest competitors in the Eng
lish market. In Rou mania and Servia
corn takes the first rank. Prior to 1860
Russia and Prussia led the United States
in the supply of wheat. From 1859 to
1861 the exports of wheat from this
country to England sprang suddenly
up from 340,504 cwt. to 15,510,472 cwt.,
while in tbe same period Russia advanced
only from 3,837,454 cwt., to 4,467,483
cwt., and Prussia from 3,345,301 cwt., to
4,462,573 cwt. The lead taken so sud
denly by this country has ever since been
maintained. 1 ables covering the years
from 1860 to 1872 show that the United
States supplied England during that
period with 28.5 per cent, of her total
imports of wheat, including flour,
against 24.7 per cent, trom Russia, and
17.2 per cent, from Germany. In the
same period England imported 43 per
cent of her total importations of corn
from this country. In 1852 the exports
of corn from his country to Great Britain
only amounted to 1,341,304 bushels,
against 1,795.682 bushels from Turkey
and Roumania, and 1,795,682 bushels
from Russia. At present Roumania and
southern Russia, to a lesser degree, are
our principal competitor in the supply
of corn. The year 1876 was a good
harvest year in England ; prices were
low, and the total imports of wheat were
only 44.394,152 cwt., against 51,886,393
cwt. in 1875. The following table gives
the sources of supply :

The importations of corn were 39,
958,226 cwt., of which upwards of 50 per
cent came trom this country. Canadian
exports of grain are included in those of
this country. It will be seen that Rus
sia and Turkey have furnished 22.6 per
cent, of the supplies to England. In In
dia a dearth prevails this year. Egypt
being subject to the suzerainty of the
porte, will be affected by the war, and
whether the war is localized or whether
it draws into it the other European pow
ers it is evident that the demand ft r
American breadstuff's will be increased
in the neighborhood of 25 per cent, in
ease of the cutting off of the fcu'sian and
Turkish supplies from market by a pro
longed war. Italy imports vcrv largely
from Odessa, on the Black Sea, and war
will also create an active demand for
our breadstuffs in Mediterranean ports.
In this country the visible supply of
wheat is only about one-halt what it was
this time last year, and if the Russian
supply is cut off from the English mar
ket the supply of wheat until the next
harvest will be very scant, and prices
necessarily high. This wilt tend to
make a good market for corn, of which
there is in this country more than twice
the quantity in stere than there was at
this time last year, although the export
to England have been larger than last
year. While much depends upon the
