Wasiiini.ton, June 21. (Special. -Although the Senate litis passed tint Mexican Pension hill to-day. it will not beeoiiie a law this session of Congress as it now stands. The Senate, for polecat effect, tacked ameiiiliiieiits to pension all 1 'nion soldiers who labor under disabili ties mid are unable to support them-, solves, whether such disability was ao quircil in tlio army or since tlm war. Tim House will never agree to such a misuse of tlio pension laws, and the bill is killed beyond redemption. It would take $2"iO.IHi,lHKi to pay pensionsaiinually u tiller tlm provisions' of the bill as it now stands. Tlio Mexican veterans will again have to wait. All legislation for this session is now practically at au end, oxeci.t the completion of the uppropriav tion bills, in order to adjourn next week. Tho Santa Fo bill is now in the hand-i ol the Conforenec Committee. Catarrh. A elenryman in Newborn, Alabama, who hud suffered witli Nasal Catarrh for nearly twenty years, after using Com pound Oxygen for four months, reports) himself cured. He says: "My catarrh, which was in tho form of an ii leer in my head, and on which dark: green scabs ' constantly formed, nml w hich had existed for eighteen or twenty years is gone. No scabs form, and thtl disagreeable sensation lias passed away. My vocal oreans are much strengthened. I iircacb now throe times a week, ami feel stronger and bettor in every way." Another clergyman, residing in Mas sachusetts, has used the Treatment for Catarrh, and gives tlio following state ment of bonelils received : "I lmvo now used your Oxygen Treat ment throe months,' mid will state re sults. After 1 had used it six weeks my catarrh was much bettor. The pit hop ing of mucus abated considerably, so much so that 'hawking' and spitting; rarely occurred. 1 lost largely the sensn of the presence of mucus in the nasal cavities. With the decroaso of mucus) my voice improved, and my enunciation became more easy mid distinct. I can now preach mi hour without throat irri tation, mid cnuticiitlo distinctly and. with ease." Mr. W. S. Sweet, of Taunton, Massa chusetts, publisher of the Family Jour nal, gives the following testimony to tha value of Compound Oxygon in eatarrli. and bronchitis: 'I would liko to say a few words in fa vor of Compound ' Oxygen. Having given it a trial for catarrh ami bronchial troubles, I was surprised, with its won derful curative properties. It has dono more for mo than any of the so-oalleA catarrh nnd throat ren'iodies I have evoc used, nnd I can say I am now almost cir tirely free front eitiier of tho nljovo af fections."
