TUESDAY EVENING, APEIL 12.
Struck ry a Steamer.?Wm. Hillier, a boot and 9hoe merchant, of Norfolk, was drowned Sunday night off Craney Island li^ht. Mr. Hillier, with two other friends, was out sailing in a small boat when the steamer Old Point, of the Norfolk and New York line, on her 7 o'clock trip from Nor? folk, collided with the boat, striking it with her paddle wheel, which was motionless at the time. The sail boat immediately sank, and Mr. Hillier, who was standing in the bow, from some reason failed to grasp one i of the lines thrown to him from the steamer. His two companions were rescued. The bodv was recovered yesterday oil Sewell's Point. The deceased was much respected, and leaves a wife and large family of child? ren. _ Death ok a Kailroad OFFICIAL.?Col. E. C. Portlack, auditor of the Shenandoah Valley Kailroad, with headquarters at Ro anoke, Va., died there Sunday of pneumo uia. He was fjr a number of years auditor of the Norfolk and Western Railroad. Dur? ing the war ho wa3 Colonel of the Fourth Arkansas regiment. Hi3 remains were taken to Petersburg for interment, and were met at the depot by a large number of r.rominent citizens, among whom were ex Snator Mahone aud ex-Gov. Cameron. "I-n'l that Mrs. Holmes? I thought the doctors gave her up. She looks well now.*1 "Shew well. After the doctors irave up her case she tried Dr. Pierce's 'Favorite Prescription' and began to gtt better riebt au ay. I heard her say not long ago. that she hadn't felt so well in twenty years. She does her own work aud says that life seems worth living, at last. 'Why,' said she. 'I feel aa if I bad been raised from the dead, almost." Thus do thousands attest the marvelous efficacy of this God-given reme? dy for female weakness, prolapsus, libera? tion, leucorrhoea, morning sitkness, weak? ness of stomach, tendency to cancerous di? sease, nervous prostration, general debility and kindred nil'ectious.

The Gazette ia now the oldest paper lc the State, and with few exceptions the old? est in the country, and its usefulness has been demonstrated and appreciated during ! the eighty seven years of its exister.ce. Ia i j its columns has always been found a mirror I of passing events, and the careful chroni ' cling of the history of what is going on in the i world has ever been its aim. It is always I welcomed in the household, while ir. the 1 counting room and workshop it has become invaluable. The Gazette has hotter facilities lor i b taining news than any paper outside of the national capital. Situated a* it is so close to the great centre of news, it enjoys daily tho benelit of the Associated Press patches from every part of the world ; becce its patrons can road from its columns in the eveuing what has transpired that day in every portion of our own domain as well a-; from every part of the habitable globe. Consequently it is an every day occurrence for the Gazette to publish telegrams from the various European capitals twelve and fifteen hours earlier than the morning pa? pers. Another feature that serves to make the Gazette a great desideratum with mer? chants is its afternoon market reports from New York, Baltimore, Chicago and other centres. The local department furnishes a lull and complete history of everything that occurs in and near the city, and this feature will, as ever, receive careful attention. Correspondence from Washington, Kich mond and every section of the State, is pub? lished regularly, aud all events of iutere.it occurring within the bounds of the Com? monwealth are to be found in the columns of the Gazette. The Gazette's circulation is steadily in creasing, especially among people who con? sult its advertising columus before purchas? ing. That this is self-evideut may bo infer? red from the fact that a large country edi? tion?nearly as large as tbedaily--is sent all over this section of country three times a week, and is read by thousand*, most of whom send here or to contiguous cities to make purchases. The advantages of ad? vertising in the Gazette are, therefore, ap? parent. bates of subscription.
