Editor NOBFOLK VtSOlXIAN : Warning has boon givon tbat if tbo commercial bodies aud people of Norfolk and Portsmouth did not combiun and tako some concert of action looking to now work in thia yard wo would bo ignored. Tbo press dispatches yesterday afternoon show that tlio Naval Appropriation bill has boon reported to the Sonato aud tbo provision for tho uonstructiou of twelve torpedo bouts stricken out. Instend, six light draught composite gunboats, of about 1,000 tons dis? placement, uro to bo built by-con tract, uud three torpedo bouts, nt a cost not to exceed $175,000 each, ono to be built ou or uear tho const of tbo Pacitic ocean, oue ou the Mississippi river ami oue ou tbo Quit of Mexico. Among tho items of increase are: Port Royal. S. 0., naval station, 880,000; dry dock at Algiers, La,, $100,000; Key Wost, Flu., naval station, $00,000. The bill froiu ths House provided that one of theso torpedo bouts shall be built tit Una yard. In viow of tho fact that this yard has been equipped by tbo Uoverument for uew work nud has gathered hero au oflicieut organization of workmou who must now seek employment elscwhore, it duos not seem that it would have boon, nor is it vet, a hard matter to convince Congress aud the Senute of the necessity of providing new work to maiutuiu tbo elhcienoy of its owu yard. QTo be out off with one small tor? pedo boat wits bad enough, but to be cut ort'entirely from uew work by the report of tho Senate is do moralizing, It is hoped that Seun tors Dauiel and Huntou will im? prove the situation. Tbo ollioioucy of this naval stutiou should ho main tained by keeping foiuo new work nt the yard uud securing the cou struotion of u dry dock of sufliciout J size to dock tho vessels now build? ing. Tho present dock will barely take tho Columbia and is not nmple for iho larger vessels now under construction. P'.very possible lutlu euce should be brought to hear at ouco to have nt luust one of tho tor? pedo boats buill hero and some ap? propriation added to tho bill for tho commcucemeut of the new dock.

Daily Ham if shire Gazelle of December '28th, give the particulars of it remarkable cure by Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy, of Alder ma u Charles S. Crouch, one of Northampton's ablest und boat known statesmen. Editor .). 0. (iero, of tbia leadiug newspaper, personally investigated the facts of tins wonderful cure, aud his widely-read editorial states tho details of the euro exactly as they occurred, giving Hon. Mr. Crouch s own words. Following is tho editorial iu fall: Learning that n great cure had been effected IU AldermiiU Chss. S. ( roueh, ol Northum:.ton, Mays., by Dr, (irseno'e Nervura blood and nervo remedy, a reporter took oocs biuu to call on Mr. Crouch and talk with him about it, and among tho thou.iuuds of testimonials giveu to this world-renowned medioine, uouo will be more widely read or give greater weight than this one, coin? ing from bo uoLd 11 man as Alder man Crouch. Mr. (:ronch is one of tho plain, old fashioned kind of meu, out? spoken, und always tneaus just wb.it ho says. Iu conversation with Mr, Crouch, he said . "Last spring I did uot";fael in my usual health; felt as tired in the morning us when I retired; had uo energy nor ambition to go nhout a day's work; no appetite with which to regain strength and energy, lu tins condition I worked along from week to week, thinking tiiut alter u while matters would ri^ht them? selves an I 1 would feel liko myself ttginn, But to the contrary, 1 grew worse. . "Knowing tnut Dr. Greene's Ner vuru was not n patent medicine, but a medioine put up from u prescrip? tion discovered by tbo doctor in bis private practice, I resolved to try it. The liri't bottle helped me bo much that 1 purchased another oue, aud even a third bottle, when, to my grout joy, I found myself as well us ever 1 wns in my life; and furthermore, huvo remained so," In 1 urtber conversation ho said: "Dr. Greene's Nervura is a great medicine There is no humbug about it! It wus mudo to cure: No land it does onra' No one noed be afraid tu use it." Dav by day bo praises this won? derful mediciue to his friends aud neighbors, as tho one sure way to regain their hoalth. Mr. Crouch lias nlwaya boon an net;ve mau iu town aud oity affairs, iu old towu njeoting days be was al? ways ou band to help with bis elo? quent oratory tho pressing needs of the linio, und since Northampton has been a city be hay served for oevornl years in its govornment, and at tbo last election bo received the largest vote for aldermau bo ever bad. He is a contractor and duriug the past low years he bas built some , of the Uucat houses in tho city. The word of this widely-known city government ollioial, Aldermau Crouch, sliould havo tho most con? vincing weight with tbo public, but when wo havo added to this the fact that the Northampton Dtlily Hamp? shire Gazette, a nowspapor of the highest statiding, vouches editorially for tho truth of every word, and its editor states that ho bas personally investigated all the facts of tbe mar? velous cure, there should be no I bositatiou by the people to use tbis great medical disoovery, tbis won? derful curor of diseaso, Dr. (Jreeue'e Nervura blood nnd nerve reruody. It is a fact, no longor to be doubted, that this remedy cures?that it makes those who uso it strong and well -that it is tbo snrost and most certain eure for disease known at tho present day. It is tbe very best of all spring medicine?, and should bo taken now by all who aro weak, nervous uud run down, to strengthen tbe nerves nnd invigorate tho blood. It is not n patent medicine, but tho prescription of tho most uuccoau ful living specialist in ouring ner? vous nud ohrouic disoasos, Dr. (irooue, of \>~> West Fourteenth strott, Now York city. He has the largest practico in tbe world, and this great medical disoovery is the result of bis vast experience. The great reputation of Dr. Greene is a guaruuteo that this medicine will eure, and the fact that bo oan bo consulted by anyone at any time free of charge, personally or by let? ter, givo3 absolute assurance of tbe bonoticiai action of tbis wonderful medicine. "Porhnps you would not thiuk ! ho, but u very largo proportion of diseases iu Now l'ork oouies froai careleaaneea about catching cold," says Dr. Cyras Bdson. "It is such u simple thing sud so common that very Uw people, unless it is n caso of pneumonia, pay any attention to a cold.
