That’s a common expres sion and has a world of meaning. How much suf fering is summed up in it. The singular thing about it is, that pain in the back is occasioned by so many things. May be caused by kidney disease, liver com plaint, consumption, cold, rheumatism,dyspepsia,over work, nervous debility, &c. Whatever the cause, don’t neglect it. Something is wrong and needs prompt attention. No medicine has yet been discovered that will so quickly and surely cure such diseases as Brown’s Iron Bitters, and it does this by commencing at the foundation, and mak ing the blood pure and r.\:h. Logansport, Ind. Dec. x, x88o. For a long time I have been a sufferer from stomach and kidney disease. My appetite was very poor and the very small amount I aid eat disagreed with me. I was annoyed very much from non-retention of urine. I tried many remedies with no success, until I used Brown’s Iron Bitters. Since I used that my stomach does not bother me any. My appetite is simply immense. My kianey trouble is no more, and my general health is such, that I feel like a new man. After the use of Brown's Iron Bitters for one mo^th, I have gained twenty pounds in weight. O. B. Sargent. Leading physicians and clergymen use and recom mend Brown’s Iron Bit ters.

The amendment was rejected—yeas 92, nays 110. Mr. Hazeltine of Missouri moved to make the period one year.

Agreed to without divis ion. Mr. Bland of Missouri offered an amend ment prohibiting national banks from issuing circulating notes and providing that hereafter no national bank shall increase its escalation or he organized without authority to issue notes to circulate as money.

Adopter!. offered an amend ment providing that every banking association which shall obtain the benefit of this act shall pay the cost of preparing plates for such new circulating notes as shall be issued to it, and all other costs incident to the substitution of such new circulating notes for the old, in ad dition to the tax now imposed on hanking asso ciations by law. Adopted. Mr. Bland of Missouri offered an amend ment to continue national hanks as banks of deposit and discount. Messrs. Barnum and Jones spoke at some length in reply to statements made by Mr. Bland concerning the position of Greeuback ers. On motion of Mr. Crapo the following amendment was t-iserted at the end of section 7: “And the franchise of such association is hereby extended for the solo purpose of liqui dating their affairs closed.” (Section 7 has reference to banking associations which do not avail themselves of tlie provisions of the act.) Mr. Randall then offered his amendment as an independent section and Mr. Crapo offered his substitute, which Mr. Randall accepted. Mr. Cannon offered the following amend ment as an additional section to the bill: “That national banks now organized or here after organized, haviug a capital of $15,000 or lessshall not he allowed to keep on deposit with the Treasurer of the United States bonds in excess of $10,000 as security for their circulat ing notes, and such of those banks having ou deposit bonds in excess of that amount shall be authorized to reduce their circulation by de posit of lawful money as provided by law. Adopted—yeas 102, nay 100. Mr. Canuon moved to reconsider and lay . that motion on the table. Mr. Randall demanded the yeas and : ays on the latter motion stating lie hoped the House would traverse tne aotiou jest taken. A motion to lay the motion In reconsider on the table, was agreed to—yeas 111, nays 9(i. No fuither action was taken on tie bill.

Prof. George J. Brush, of the Sheffield Scientific School, testified that Walter Malley was a student therein 187’J and left in 1880 aud chemistry is taught in the school. Apothecary Spaulding testi fied that his record book showed the following entry: “Sept, (ith, 1880, W. Malley, Church street, four ounces arsenic, for rats.” He tes tified that Walter also purchased nitric and muriatic acids. Cross-examination elicited nothing new. Supt. Hanis, of the Western Union Telegraph office in this oity, testified that the despatch was sent to Stamford for Walter Malley at 5.25, August 4th. George B. Kelsey, a member of the coroner’s jury, testi fied at length regarding the testimony of Wal ter and James Malley and Blanche Douglass before the coroner’s jury. Mr. Doolittle offered some letters written by Walter Malley to Blanche Douglass to prove that Walter swore falsely in saying ho only knew Blanche a month before and also to prove intimacy. Deputy Sheriff Peck testified he told B'«' cue about the reward and that by turning S r evidence she would get a light sentence . >td t ,e reward. It was a part of the arraugetc'-i.t tp discharge her counsel. Mr. Jones said he would show that Painter, a member of the coroner’s jury and a represent ative of the Stat-\ in endeavoring to secure a confession from Blanche went to a friend of Biaucho iu New York aud induced her to write a letter in which Dr. Painter was quoted by name, and asking Blanche to tell all she knew.

Kendall was found in a meadow near the county poorbouse cemeteryi four miles from this city, this morning with a bullet bole between the eyes and a full kit of resurrectist’s tools was found near the body. It is supposed Kendall was engaged in body snatching and cither shot himself or was shot by a companion. He cannot live. The case is a mysterious oue. IRELAND'S TROUBLE. A Mysterious Passenger by a Foreign Steamer Arrested in New York ON SUSPICION OF BEING ONE OF THE ASSASSINS. New York, May 18.—A man giving the name of Michael Turner was on board the steamer Wisconsin which arrived yes'erday, whose actions and words during the voyage excited suspicion among some of the passen f rs. He had no baggage, aud only the cloth g he wore. As soon as the vessel touched the pier he was the first to go down the gang plank and immediately disappeared. A pas senger named Kettle also left as soon as possi ble, took a carriage ana repaired to the police station, where he gave some information to the police relative to Turner, but the ' atter cannot be found. It is surmised that Turner knew or had something to do with the assas sinations in Ireland. His ticket was purchased in the Dublin office of the company at £10 10s on the day of the assassinations, and counter signed in Queenstown on Sunday morning, so that it is fair to presume that he took the last, or the night train from Dublin to his port of destination. As the Wisconsin passed the Scythia at quarantine Turner was told that officers were searching that vessel for the as sassin, at which .ie showed great trepidation. The detectives did not board the Wisconsin. * ' Vben last seen lie was making tracks as fast as possible across West street, looking furtively to the right and left as if fearful at every step of being intercepted by some oue. That he feared a meeting with some one was evidenced by his peculiar manner and action, which did not fail to attract the attention of more tlian one person. LA1ER. Michael Turner, the suspected assassin of Cavendish, was arrested here to-day and takeu before the British consul. He takes the mat ter as a joke. Mr. Perry, as passenger on the Wisconsin, says he met Turner at several fairs in Ireland, and found him only a jolly fellow. The officers of the Wisconsin scout the idea of his being an assassin. Special Prayers for Ireland. London, May 18.—A Canterbury despatch says the Upper House of Convocation has agreed upon a form of prayer for use during the present troubles in Ireland. It asks for preservation from secret conspiracies and open violence, the appeasement of tumults in Ire land and the healiug of her eores. Condemning the Repression Bill. A meeting of the Irish parliamentary party to-day unanimously coudemned the repression bill as unworthy of the Irish people and fraught with the direct consequences to them. It was decided to ask Gladstone why the arrears bill was not printed aud whether he will expedite it. Trevelyan called attention to the fai'ure of justice in Ireland. He declared the new bill would facilitate summoning of witnesses. He defended the provisions against the publica tion of seditious articles by referriug to the charter of ihe Irish World and United Irish man. He 9aid the government had reason to think in their efforts to suppress outrage tliey would have the assistance of those who be come tired of the terrorism to which they had been so long subjected. Dillon maintained that failures to convict v ere not the result of intimidation but of popular sympathy. The bill he declared would have no other effect that to provoke secret organizations. When the measure ex pired the league would rise again and Parlia ment would have to do the work over again. Debate adiourned till to-morrow. General Notes. London, May 18.—The Times says Parnell will strongly oppose the repression bill on the ground that it should be delayed until after the arrears bill has been passed. The fear of being arrested for the Cavendish and Burke assassinations is so general in Ire land that peasantry traveling outside of their own district apply to the police for passports. Many emigrants leaving the south of Ireland for America resort to the same course. At a private meeting in Dublin all the Irish judges oxcept the Lord Chancellor unanimous ly resolved to send a strong remonstrance to the government against the proposed abolition of trial by jury.

St. Paul, May 18—The president (wo professors of the State University at Mi,leap. olis were before the municipal court yest,day on a criminal charge growing oat of on eifa_ ordinary performance last night, in which a student was shot by a professor. There ha been rumorjthat the students were contemplate ing a lark, and President Folweli, with Profs. - Moore and Pike, decided to watch for develop, ments at his house. The night wore on till 2 o’clock or later, when President Folweli discov ered a party approaching, and started to meet them. They dropped ihe gates which they bore, and all but one rau l>3ck to Fourth street pursued by President FolwiH. This one, who was Asa Paine, che victim ol the shooting, ran straight by the president, and >v,< pursued by Profs. Moore and Pike, the latter drawing his revolver aud crying, “Halt, or I will shoot you!” This threat incited the young man to greater speed, and he was closely followed Prof. Moore using his cane about the arms and shoulders of the fugitive with good effect. When they reached a vacant lot iu front o! Prof. Pika’s residence, Payne fell, and before he could rise wascauglit.it is claimed, in a shower of blows from gPrnf. Moore’s stick. He gained lus feet, crying, “I can’t stand this; stop, or I will shoot!” at the same lime draw ing a revolver aud waving it over his head. Prof. Pike came up » ith hitn, and, thinking his own life in danger, presented his pistol aud fired, the ball taking effect in the fleshy part of the left thigh. The wounded youth ex laimed, “1 am shot,” and the professor quickly assisted him and led him back to President FolwelPs, where he was kindly cared for and a doctor hastily summoned, who pronounced the wound not fatal, aud probed for the bullet, but failed to find it. Iu the moruing Payue was convey ed to his father's residence, where lie now lies. The attending surgeon prououncod the injury only a flesh wound, but fears are entertained that it may result in permaueut lameness. President Folweli and Profs. Pike aud Moore were arrested yesterday. Pike was held iu bonds of £500 to appear the 29th inst. for trial on charge of assault upon Asa Payue with a deadly weapon, and Folwe, I end Moore were released on their own recognizance to answer at the same time the charge of assault and battery. —-■—— 4 THE PERUVIAN COMPANY. Mr- Hitt’s Examination Postponed—No Notice taken of Shipherd’s Litter. Washington, May 17.—The House commit tee on foreign affairs held a session this morn ing at which Robert H Hitt late assistant sec retary of State, attended as witness. Before sworn, however, Mr. Walker inquired of the chairman ns to what points Mr. Hitt was to be examined upon, and Mr. Blount at whose in stance the witness had been summoned. The chair stated that he would prefer to im part that information in executive sessiou. The room was accordingly cleared, and after the doors were reopened it was announced that the examination of M. Hitt would not bo pro ceeded with this forenoon, inasmuch as the testimony taken before the sub committee in New York, in connection with which Mr. Hitt was to testify, is not in print. No action has thus far been taken ou Ship herd's letter of last evening to the chairman, bat that matter will probably be taken into consideration and passed upon by a committee today.

The new comet is whirling through space at a tremendous rate of speed aud in time will span half the arch of the sky, making the au tumn evenings brilliant with incandescent light. By the first of June the celestial visitor should be visible to tho naked eye, and every one who can command tho uso of a telescope ought to get at least one look at it before that time. It is a sight to be remembered, especial ly if the comet should make as great a display within two months as the astronomers predict it will. R-membering that this gives promise of be ing one of the grandest comets ever seen, it is interesting to look at it in its babyhood. It is far from possessing anything impusing in its appearance. The inexperienced observer has to look twice before seeing it at all, especially if tho telescope he is using he of small aper ture. Yet anybody can see that it is an iufant Hercules. It has a head like a star, compact and brilliant, aud it trails behind it in its mil liou-mile-a-day flight, a little, straight bright tail, bigger already away out there in space than must comets are able to display at their perihelion. The latest observations confirm the early de claration made by Prof. Boss, that the comet will go extraordinarily close to the sun. No as trouemer has succeeded in identifying it with any previous comet, and it is probable that this is its first visit to the solar system, at least since men have made records of celestial phen omena. It is not impossible that it last exhib ited the glories of its train to the inhabitants of the worlds revolving aiound some distant fixed star. The question is frequently asked, “How largo will the comet be?” It is impos sible to say more than that judging from the brightness of its nucleus aud the present rate of iucreaso in the size of its tail, it ought to be a more brilliant comet than that of last summer. But nobody can premise that it will be, be cause the nature of comets and thet laws that govern the development of their tails are not well enough known to enable astronomers to make positive predictions concerning their ap pearance. This comet’s position when nearing ilie sun will not be such as to give us the best view of its tail. The comet of 1858, like this one, was watched from the time it appeared as a faint object in the telescope until it hung liko a great band of light iu the western heav ens. 1. Hhni.t Q — LTheodore Watts in the Athenaeum.] Wonderful as was Rossetti as an artist and poet, he was still more wonderful, I think, as a man. The chief characteristic of his conver sation was an incisiveness so perfect and clear as to have of ion the pleasurable surprise of wit. It is so we!i known that Rossetti had been for a Ion r time the most retired man of genius of our day, and so many absurd causes for this re tirement have been spoken of that there is nothing indecorous iu the true cause of it being made public by one who of late years has known more of him, perhaps, than has any other person. About 1808 the curse of the ar tistic and poetic temperament—insomnia—at tacked him, and ono of the most distressing ef fects of Insomnia is a nervous shrinking from personal ooutact with any save a few intimate friends. This peculiar kiud of nervousness may be aggravated by the use of sleeping draughts, and iu his case was thus aggravated. But, although Rossetti lived thus secluded, he did not lose the affectionate regard of the illus trious met; with whom he started iu his artistic life. Nor, assuredly, did be deserve to lose it, for no man ever lived, 1 think, who was so jnerous as ha in sympathizing with other c'(U’s work, save only when the cruel fumes of hiaral turned him against every thing. And onjjnpathy was as wide as generous. It was I^i^fcessary to mention the name of Sir F. or Mr'1 or Mr. Millais or Mr. Madox Brown deed o?rn0 Jo"es or Mr. G. F. Watta, or, in itial a gfty contemporary painter, to get from each—a if,nS disquisition upon the merits of tions and H'sition full of the subtlest distiuc his niutohlei8lin!*teJ by tlla brilliant lights of poetry. ButW And it was the same in to say, those wl® «’*"> loved Rossetti (that is d'fflcnlt it is for t,luW him) can realize how now such remiuiSL* 'need, to pursue just time it may be posS68 HS these. In a week’s -3 to write about him. (Cor. Ne The Czaf”* Sunjl While hia special oourie erl1, sealed orders into hisnumeF® galloping with as yet there are no railroads, i^ooaius, where no regular post communicatioi?-IeSraPh3>au^ Moacovites ere in full turmoil the for his coronation, at iho same tim'®Parat'cu foes are reported tc bo also busy prdt deadly the Czar some fireworks of their o#S for But where to look for these fireworks—“h® ground, on the surface, or in the air—n<9>' knows, and everybody is full of dark apl hensious. Tho question where the Nihilii can best deal their blow to the Czar is dismissed, here in whispois. In the first place the Czar has to travel Irora St. Petersburg to Moscow, 400 miles by railroad, and who knows at how many points that railroad isundermined? Who knows how many oi tho switchmen of that road are Nihilists? In tile next place, alter reaumug ™ Czar will stop, according to an ancient custom, in the Petrovsky Park, about two miles from the Kreud, where be will remain until the eve of the coronation, aud then will go to the Kremlin. Now that short journey, which will be rather a pompous procession, amid masses of people, will, of course, be extremely dangerous. Thou, in the Kremlin the Czar has to go on foot from his palace to the Uspensky Cathedral and back, a distance of about fifty yards, amid thousands of representatives of the people, who will occupy the space between the palace and the cathedral. Who knows whether at that moment when the Czar in full glory appears be fore the representatives of his people, a Nihilist boom may not be thrown down from the roof of the cathedral? Nobody denies bare that there is great danger for the Czar and for those who on the coronation day shall surround him, and on that account the good people of Moscow havo never before been so much excited on the eve of a coronation as they are now, while awaiting the coronation of Alexander III. It is said that Oscar Wilde's visit to this country has caused a boom ia sunflower seed, and that this year thero won’t be a garden or door-yard in Newport or Saratogo or any other popular summer resort but that will havo a brilliant display of its heliantlius annuus, tub orosus or multiflores. But the sunflower is a valuable annual, nevertheless. In Portugal meal is maid from the seeds, from which bread is made; aud when roasted they make an ex cellent substitute for coffee. The seed in its natural state is eagerly sought for by birds aud in the country sunflowers aro raised for their seeds, which are used in large quantities for chickou feed. It is very fattening, so if you ato served with lean chicKens at your country boarding house this summer you may thank Mr. Wilde aud the more important demand bo has created for the seed as a feast for the eyes. The seed contains a great quantity of oil, which is tit for burning in lamps and wbicli is in some European countries made into a good substitute for olive oil. Trade between Germany and the UniteJ States for the xuarter ending the last of March shows a large increase. From Berlin the sta tistics give exports of 1,200,000 marks more than for the corresponding period in 1881. FromLeipsie the increase was 1,100,000 marks; from Hamburg, nearly 2,000,000 marks, and from Bremen, 1,150,000 marks. Smaller towns show like increases. It is believed that the to tal of all places during the quartor will reach 20,000,000 marks. The first weeks in April gave promise of similar increases for that > month over last year. The Latest Boston Scandal. Social circles in Boston are scandalized by a notable divorco suit now pending in the Su" preme Court. Tbo parties are Louisa W. Cum ming, formerly Mrs. Charles O. Rogers, vs. William Cumming, alleging unfaithfulness, drunkenness anu other misdemeanors. The libelee contests and makes counter charges The parties have been married Borne years, the husband having been, previous to the death of Col. Rogers, a tutor in the family. Col. Rogers, who will be remembered as the publisher of the Boston Journal, left au estate appraised at 81, 400,000. There are two sons and two daughti rg by the original marriage, each of whom rece v ed 8200,000, and a considerable part of the ie' mainder of the estate was placed in trust. It is alleged that after the marriage Mrs. Cum ming settled a large amount of property on her husband, and some months ago a hearing was had on a petition for an injunction to restrain Mr. Cumming from convoying property en trusted to him. Now tho libel for divorce is before the court. A large number of witnesses testified to the habitual drunkenness of the libelee. Mrs. May Child testified that since 18fi5 she has been a traveling companion of Mrs. Rogers and an intimate friend, and the most of the time has lived in the family. Always took my meals with the family. There was usually wine on the table. Mr. Cumming drauk claret. Mrs. Cumming sometimes took wine. Saw Mr. Cumming drunk a number of times. 1 went abroad with them; remember of seeing him drunk at Richmoud. England There were unmerons times, but I remember this one in particular. I was not ou pleasant terms with Mr. Cumming. Never attempted to proveut au interview between him and Mrs Cumming after they had separated. I under stood that Mr. Cumming eudeavored to find his wife for the purpose of seeking a reconcilia tion, but I was not aware of attempts to pre vent their meeting. He said that he wanted to be reconciled to his wife; that rum had been the cause of all the trouble. He said to me if there were to be divorce proceedings he did not want adultery to be a cause, but if Mrs Cum ming would give him 85U00 a year, and some money for his debts, and would sue for divorce ou the ground of drunkenness, he would make uo opposition, but would go to Europe aud re ma>n there. This conversation between Mr. Cumming and myself occurred in November last. He said he warned Mrs. Cumming to re turn to him; he was a changed man; he could not live without her. I told him it was too late fora reconciliation; that I had no in fluence with her to iuduee her to return to him. The deposition of Charles N. Rogers, a son of Mrs. Cummiug, testified to adultery of Cum ming with Stella Angel, at the New Marlboro Hotel. He also testified to Cummlng’s habits of drunkenness. The Perils of Ocean Navigation.
