between 12 and 1 o clock on Saturday
night, while returning to his hotel, in
Baltimore, Col. Spalding,of the late Japan
expedition, was attacked by two men,
who garroted him and attempted to rob
him ofhis watch and money. He wrest
led with his assailants, who dealt him
several severe blows, but did not succeed
in stunning him. Finding that they
would likely be discovered they fled and
succeeded in making their escape. In
the affray Col. S. was thrown on the
curbstone, which somewhat injured his
loins, but received no further injury.
The drawings for the new sloop-of-war,
to be built at Philadelphia, were received
on Wednesday from Washington, by
Commodore Stewart, and the work will
be commenced forthw ith. For some time
past there have not been scarcely a hun
dred men employed in that yard.
A new counterfeit §5 on the Bank of

The New York flour market yesterday

Shocking Occurrence.—The Potts
ville Miners’ Journal of Saturday says:—
On Thursday, an Irish girl, named
Kennedy, while returing to Minersvillo
from visiting her sister at St. Clair, was
caught while on the track of the Mount
Harbor Railroad, half a mile above this
borough, by a train of loaded coal cars,
run over and instantly killed. The body
was literally quartered, the mangled
remains presenting a horrible sjicctacle.
It is stated that she was deaf, and not
aware of the approach of the cars. Ev
ery effort was made by the moil on the
train to warn the unfortunate girl of her
danger.—The cars on that portion of the
road descend by gravity, and it being
impossible to cheek the train which killed
the girl, in time to save her life, the
brakesman threw coal at her to warn her,
but all in vain.
Kidnapping.—John Osborne, a citizen
of Memphis, Tcnn., has been arrested
and convicted at floly Springs, Miss., on
a charge of kidnapping twenty-odd ne
groes from the plantation of R. II. Par

charged that Osborne kidnapped .the ne
groes in person, but that he procured it to
be done.
Sharp Shootio.—Washington appears

cordial co-operation of the members in
despatching business and upholding
the dignity of the House. He promised
to administer rules which may to adopted
with firmness and impartiality.
The groat business confided to them by
the people admonished them to cultivate
a patriotism as expansive as the confedera
cy itself. He cherished the hope that the
business of the body would be transacted
to promote the interests and happiness of
the entire people; that the constitution
would be maintained in its integrity, and
that their legislation would quicken the
greatness and glory of our common coun

f-S" Listen, Ye Dyspeptics.—Go
amiclo Likewise. Permanent Cure
—The Rev. James Hunnicutt, proprietor and
editor of that excellent paper, the Christian
Banner, published at Fredericksburg, Va.,
in his editorial of June 5th, 1857, thus speaks
of liis cure:
HAMPTON’S VEGETABLE TINCTURE.
It will remembered by many of our readers,
that several years ago we stated in the edi
torial columns of the Christian Banner, that
II vmptox’s Vegetable Tincture had effected
a cure for Dyspepsia in our own case—that
<vc had labored long with this terrible dis
ease, and suffered most awfully, the pain and
melancholy which necessarily accompanies
this horrible enemy of man and man’s hap
piness. For a long time we lived inconstant
lear that the fell monster would return.—
But, thank God, and thanks to Hampton’s
Tincture, the gloomy demon has not yet re
turned, and we begin to think he never will.
We now feel confident in saying that Hamil
ton’s Vegetable Tincture has* made a radical
cure of Dyspepsia in our own case. We have
not taken a drop of it for the last two years,
to the best of our recollection. We eat what
we please, and as much as we please and chew
tobacco to our heart’s content, and all is well.
We believe that twelve bottles, judiciously
taken, will cure nine cases out of every ten of
dyspeptics. We conscientiously recommend
it to all dyspeptics. The spring time and
summer it is most recommended, therefore,
as a philanthropist, we call attention to it.—
Editor of the Christian Banner.
Call and get Pamphlets, and see cures of
Cough, Rheumatism, Scrofula, Ac. As a res
torative and invigorator, it has been highly
recommended.

Delicate Ladies and Children will
please give it a trial.

PECULIAR AD VAN TAG ES.
The coffee made in this boiler is always
palatable because there is no loss of the flavor
of the colfee by evaporation, as in the ordi
nary boiler, always healthy, because the bit
ter "principle of the colfee is held in subjec
tion to the aromatic, by means of the con
denser ; always economical, because being
boiled, the full strength of the grain is ex
tracted—which is not the case with the ordi
