How "Dr. Johnston's Specific" was In
vented I It Is evident that, if a person
partakes too freely and too often.' of
victuals which they, are fond ot, they pro
duce ju course of tima and allat once, a
disgust to the same, jirjQ it will be Impos
sible for a person to" partake of the same
thereafter.--.But this does not hold good in
regard to liquors. Tbe more a person con
sumes, the more his desire increases, the
more : he will banker after it. To destroy
this peculiar taste 'for liquor by addln
something to it, was the object of Dr.
Johnston. After years of bard study" and
judicious experiments the Doctor's ef
forts, were, at lastcrowned with unbound
ed success. : He discovered certain plants
which actually possess such curative pow
ers that will in all cases destroy the appe
tite for liquor forever! ' ." '

National Board of Trade.
CINCINNATI, Dec. 7.
Holden, of Milwaukee, as Chairman
of the Convention, submitted a brief re
port, the first of which is that Congress
should determine the time for the resump
tion of specie payments. It was debated
oy several members, some ot whom wished
one time and some auother. That of Mr.
Nazro, ot Boston, was brought to a divis
ion, in which he wished to add the words
not later than tlie first ot July, 1SG7."
which, on a division, -was lost. i t
Mr. Uolton. in proposinar the second res
olution, that no cold should be sold till the
National Banks bad in, reserve their full
percentage of gold, said the eom mlttee
had purposely determined to avoid details
as to the time ot action, leaving much to
thewUdoui of Congress. -.. . - ,
Mr. Taylor, of St. Paul,' congratulated
the committee as much on what they
had lelt undone as on what thev
bad recommended. He ' instanced the
success of the Canadian Parliament
and . - Ministry for the able financier
ing they had sRown In the resumption
ol specie pay men ts, going Into clear details.
He concluded by sayiug tbe United States
could do tbe very same, with the same
success. He proposed that Congress should
prohibit all notes of less value than ten
dollars, the previous question was then
moved, whereby the resolutions of the
committee were carried. Tbe other reso
lutions were that no further sales of gold
should be made but lor the purchase of
5-20's, and all bonds so purchased cancel-
let); that gold contracts should be legaliz
ed, and tbe national honor and faith .re
quires that the Government should not
avail itself of tbe right to pay off 5 20
bonds until by a general resumption of
specie payments. The public debt, as it
matures, can be paid in specie or its equiv
alent. The resolution was carried.
Mr. Holton presented a resolution offer
ed by Mr. Gano, which was not agreed to
by the committee, resolving that Congress
be urged to amend the National Bank law
so that quarterly reports at specified times
oe dispensed with, and that instead each
National Bank shall be called upon by the
Comptroller once a quarter to show what
its conaition may nave Deen on a designa

have their powers restricted.
Third, That our foreign affairs are in a
favorable condltlonTbe negotiations with'
Great Britain regarding the Alabama:
claims (so-called) have not reached an end.
Certain portions of the proposedpi:otocal
ot arbitration were not approved bj this

to Minister-Johnson.-' The resignation of

temporary hindrance. Manv details rela
tive to these claims' are-notdeemed proper
to communicate1 in the ittessaVe. ' ' '
Oilers ot arbitration between Paraguay:
and Brazil have even declined, and !ihe
course of Paraguay commented on. In
