WHAT BEACiiNsKIELI) SAID.
In his speech at the Mansion house ban
quet Lord Ui'iconstii-ld said he felt confi
dent her majesty's ministry hud not only
maintained the interests of their own
country, but hud secured the independence
of Europe. He drew a sanguine picture of
the prospects from the Angio-Turkish con
vention. In suppirt ot the view that it
was not hopeless to expert reforms in the
administration of the porte, he cited
a statement sent to the emperor cif
Germany liy German miionaries. setting
forth tlie toleration of Christians, the
progress of education in tin; Ottoman domin
ions, etc., since the Crimeuu war. Lord
Iieacoiistield said this testimony was prefer
able to any official report. It was that of
men of the highest principles and of sublime
character who devoted their lives to the
Loiwtit .t' their fellow oroutuit-a. II10 lorU-
s1 i said tnat never within his experience
had the relations of the Dowers been so es
sentially friendly. Ruvsian statesmen were
convinced that a restless, warlike spirit must
chae. perhaps even ruin, that elliliirc. The
estrangement of France he should reoiid as
one of the greatest misfortunes which could
happen Li England.
Lord Salisbury also made a speech, indi
cating that the government has resolved to
fully avail itself of the right of interference
in favor of good government afforded by
the Anglo-Turkish convention. He urged
upon llritisli statesmen the sinking of'all
patty dilfereuces in support of such a policy.
The Standard announces in official form
that there will be no dissolution of parlia
ment this year.

REPORTS FROM MEMPHIS, VICKSlil ltti AND

cer is put to considerable trouble preventing
people from New Orleans entering the city
contrary to Uarantiiie regulations. Two
gentlemen arriving by the Mississippi and
Tennessee railroad tins morning were ar
rested and carried before the chief of po
lice, but they established the fact that they
came on tickets purchased at Grenada and
and were released. The trick played
on tin' (ii:ir:intine officials is to buy
tickets at New Orleans to some way point
and at that point purchase tickets to Mem
phis. This w ill have the etfect to make the
board of health include New Orleans and all
way points in their quarantine blockade.
The health officer is acting upon the prin
ciple that eternal vigilance is the price of
health, and by his vigilance ami untiring
efforts has established confidence licit; that
yellow fever can be kept out of our city.
It is rumored to-night that the party taken

A NEAT JOB.
THE SPRINGFIELD (IA7.KTTK FALLS A VICTIM
TO THE WILES OF THE WICKED REGISTER
Forsomn time past the Statu Register
und State Journal of Springfield, which pa
pers receive the Associated Fress dispatches
there, have been charging that the Gazette,
which receives no dispatches from the tele
graph office, was in the habit of getting an
curly copy of either of the papers men
tinned Hint clipping the dispatches there
from to bu reprinted in the Gazette, ut a
later hour in the morning. This the Gazette
lias repeatedly denied, and the public lias
been ill doubt as to the truth of thu clmrges.
This morning, however, the Register pub
lished among its dispatches the following
Winchester III. Aug. 2. About 4 p.
lit. to-day, u heavy rain hud prevailed for
more than an hour, w hen the clouds in the
northwest became heavier, and a terrible
tornado tmrst on the town. John Wlnclicll
son of the principal owner of the town, was
killed Ity the destruction ot the building in
which he was engaged in writing. Rev.
Mr. Gaulop, pastor of the German Lutheran
church, was in his study when the tornado
struck thechurch and started across the street
to his residencebttt was struck by the limbers
from the spire of thu church, which was
blo-'n uway, uud was fatally injured. It
wus some time before hit was rescued from
the w reck and taken to his house, where
lie died in half tin hour. His lust words
were: l,Ich habe iliese iiachricht gesto
hlen." A great many houses were more or less
damaged, and trees and fences were pros
trated in all directions.
An agent of the Gazette was ready to
get an early copy, and this being supplied
the dispatch was reproduced in that paper,
the proprietor being wholly unconscious
that the "last words" of the ftupMisitioiis
preacher lire in English, "I have stolen this
information." The unemployed jiopulatiiin
of the city, which is large just now, has been
in great glee over the joke to-day.
THE JETTY SYSTEM.
ITS MOKF. F.I.AHOItATE DISCI SSION LIKELY TO
COMK CP AT THE NEXT SESSION INTIMA
TIONS OF RENEWED HOSTILITY ON THE
PART OF THE ENGINEER COUPS.
From the Philadelphia Pre.
Washington, August 1. The petition of
Captain Ends diiringthe late session of con
gress, asking a modiriculion of his contract
with the government for the opening of it
ship channel of a maximum depth of thirty
feet from the mouth of the Mississippi river
into water of equivalent or greater depth in
the Gulf of Mexico has attracted public at
ti: n to such an extent to his system that it is
not improbable at the next session of Con
gress the question will come up for mure
elaborate discussion and extended legisla
tion. The committee charged with the con
sideration of the petition of Captain Ends,
while disposed to facilitate his work in
every manner possible within the limits of
the original contract, showed 11 disposition
to obtain more information than then pos
sessed by the Government, und proposed
for that purpose the organization of a Com
mittee of Science to report generally upon
the practicability of the jetty system as 11
permanent system of channel improvim-iit,
and upon various contingent forces at work
to prevent durable results.
The success of the operations of Captain
Eads's system thus fir has awakened a
wider interest in the work, mid there is ev
ery prospect of its expansion into a question
of conflict between the great rail transporta
tion routes to the seaboard. There were
some incipient indications of this hostility
last winter, and it is not improbable, should
any further legislation be undertaken, that
these rival interests will come in open colli
sion. Independent of this probable opposi
tion, a strong influence is growing up in the
engineer corps of the army against Captain
Eads's enterprise, but w hether from well
grounded scientific or practical objections,
or from a narrow sense of opposition -to the
execution of great works of river harbor im
provement by private enterprise, remains to
A gentleman of extensive mercantile in
terests in New Orleans, speaking of the
present operations in the Soiiih I'.iss of the
Mississippi, says that Captain Ends is en
titled to great consideration for the scien
tific skill and practical enterprise displayed
as far as the work has progressed; that the
people of New Orleans fully appreciate and
applaud the success thus' far; that the
government, under the direction of the
secretary of war, could not have conducted
the experiment to the same point, without
the expenditure of a much larger sum than
has already been disbursed, Je savs that
the universal sentiment in commercial and
mercantile circles in New Orleans
is, without exception, favorable to
the project as a successful experiment, but
lucks sufficient practical 'est as a premaiicnt
ly established work; that no great sloiin
has yet tested its durability in 11 mechanic
al point of view, or the complete correctness
of the theory, a doubt being expressed us to

Disease of the liver all'ects women more
than men, because of the great delicacy of
their nervous system. A w.wmn with thw
disease will have many additional symp
toms, and tin y are very often considered as
so many dihYrcnt diseases, when, if the
liver difficulty was removed, many symp
toms peculiar to women would ut once dis
Sick headache, nervous headache, neural
gia, rheumatic pains in various parts of tiiu
body, great prostration, excessive weakness
of the entire body, the limbs are scarcely
able to support the body, they ache intense
ly and tremble when walking. There is a
sense of drugging down from the loins and
back forward until it is quite difficult to
stand erect; most always a severe backache;
the shoulders are lame, weary, and drop
with an indescribable sense of burning beat
under the shoulder-blade, and an uching.sick
cuing, dragging, unbearable agony. These
last symptoms thousand of woinen have,
more or less severe. There is a great sensu
of weariness ami pain at the base of the skull,
many time, with intense suffering. This
pain not infrequently passes forward, and
finally spreads over the entire head, and
may be the commencement of sick head
ache. Now if this condition of the liver is not
improved, otherorgans will becomediseiwed.
Tin-blood will become so laden with im
purities and impoverished because of indi
gestion that it will not be able to nourish
the various parts of the body.
No part of the economy suffers more from
this state than the nervous system, nnd
among delicate females the number of ail
ments that are directly uttributable to this
one cause are legion, and in many cases
their sufferings are well-nigh unbearable.
And to this .disease Dyspepsia, which is

MISS KATE MITCHELL CLAItK,
wife of the Kev. Mashew M. Clark, of
Hyde Park, III., said; "My health gave uway
over twenty years ago, and my system run
down to such an alarming extent that at,
times I lost all desire to live. I have ex
perienced all the sulferings iiccompaiiying
a badly diseased stomach, liver, und spleen,
and have also been troubled for all these
veal's with constipation of the worst kind.
I have tried every treatment, and have
taken, of course, vast quantities of medi
cine of every description, and, I must say, too
no purpose. I recently read Dr. 1). W. Fuir
child's lecture 011 the treatment of disease
by absorption, etc., by the use of the llol
man Stomach and Liver Pad, Plasters, and
Absorption Hath. I found the lecture re
plete with good sense and sound reasoning.
The following day, April 4, 1878, I deter
mined to avail myself of the treatment, nnd
called ut the Hol'muii Pad DeHt, l;4 Madi
son street, Chicago, weak, emaciated and
hopeless, and purchased the spleen belt, the
foot-bath absorption salt, the body and foot
piasters. This was nearly four weeks since,
I am now (strange and marvelous us it may
seem) able to walk several miles, am entire
ly free from constipation, also niy stomach,
liver, and spleen troubles; have an excellent
appetite, and I feel like a new woman.
'I'his to me seems marvelous, but it is just
what the Holman Stomach and Liver Fad,
etc., did for me. I send you this statement
most cheerfully, and shall ever nvconimcnd
these most marvelous remedies."
Inclosed find 2.00 for another of those
Holman Liver Pads. When I received the
other no one thought I could live over three
months, but in four weeks I was ublu to
work some, mid I am well now.
Yours gratefully, W. O. Whirling.
