Great Fire in Milwaukee.
FA’J/FJVr OF THE TROOPS.
The Position of England.
Milwaukee, July 5.
There was a greit conflagration hero
! yesterday afternoon, entirely destroying
the American House, owned by P- Kane
<fc Sons; two brick stores, owned by C.
H. Williams, and übout six frame build
ing occupied as store, west of the Amer
' ican House; the Methodist Church on
i the north side of Spring street, and all
the frame buildings east to Austin’s
Block, which was considerably damaged.
, Aiso several sm II frame buildings used
.as shops, north of the Methodist Church.
Loss, fully one hundred thousand dollars.
The American House was insured for
seven’een hundred dollars; other insur
ance not ascertained. The fire origina
ted in a livery stable in rear of the
American House, from the crackers.
Washington, July 5.
Gen. Patterson has achieved another
brilliant and important success. Inform
ation was received from Martinsburg
yesterday that he entered and passed
through there in the morning in hot pur
suit of the enemy. The army was wel
comed with enthusiasm by the mass of
the people who were grat tied by the pro
tection promised and now given by the
Government—thus the 4th was glorious
ly celebrated in Martinsburg,
The secession force which Gen. Pat
terson scattered on the 2<l, when ho
crossed the river, lost 60 killed and many
wounded. It rallied and presented a
front but again retired to a distance of
six or seven miles, where they have been
reinforced.
Washington, July. 5.
The foreign dispatches it is und rstood
showed as improved disposition in Eng
land from France. The Afonileur article
which afforded so much joy to secession
ists has been explained away to the evi
dent satisfaction of Secretary Seward.—
The most hearty and sincere expressions :
of sympathy with the United States in j
present contest are furnished to tris Gov- j
eminent. No prnateers will be permit .
ted to enter any foreign port. There 1
is n joicing in official quarters that access- ;
ion is dead and buried in Europe.
It is certain that after the discharge of
the three months men there will still be .
an available force of 188,000 men which
added to the regulars, amount to 230,000 ;
efficient officers and men.
The probable total amount required i
for the army, added to the appropriation
made for the year ending with June 1861, j
for the force now in the field or which
has been accepted and will be in the scr
vice within the next twenty days is al
most $185,300,000; the estimate for the
Navy is also large.
New York, July 6.
A special Washington dispatch to the ;
Tribune, dated the stli, says the grand '
army will advance in three divisions; the l
right led by Gen. Tyler, of Ct., the cen- I
tre by Col. Hunter, and the left by Col. 1
Heintzelmann—the whole by Gen. Me j
Dowell. There will be a further corps I
of reserve, which will not bo far from j
10,000 men. Where the three coininns 1
will combine cannot bo stated, but we
may venture to say that it will be at a
point boyond Fairfax Court House.
Everything indicates that the hour of
marching is not far distant.
IPbrZcZ’s Correspondence. — Attorney
General Bates has prepared anopinion at
some length concerning the power of the
President to suspend the writ of habeas
corpus, special r-derenci being made to
the Merriman case.
He holds that the functions of the ex- .
ccutivc, legislative and judiciary branch- '
es of the government are so distinct and
final that neither can clash with the oth
er, and that the previous judgement of
Supreme Court against the executive
right of suspending the writ of habeas 1
corpus would not constitute a binding
precedent. The action of the president '
is fc.llv endorsed in the document.
The lelations of the government with I
foreign powers arc understtod to be so j
satisfactory that the senate committee on ■
foreign relations will report no resolu- '
tions having reference to foreign affairs.
It is believed that no compromise pro
positions will bs preseated to eitbes sen
ate oi house during this session. Breckin
ridge will no doubt make a compromise
speech at an early day.

MISCELLANEOUS,
The amalgamation of Languages.—There is
a growing tendency in this »ge to appropriate
the most expressive words of other languages,
and after a while to incorporate them into our
own; thus the word Cephalic, which is from
the Greek, signifying “for the head,” is now be
coming popularized in connection with Mr.
Spalding’s great Headache remedy, but it will
soon be used in a more general way, and the
word Cephalic will become as common as
Electrotype and many others whose distinction
as foreign words has been worn away by com
mon usage until they seem “native and to the
manor born.”
hardly Realized.
Hi ’ad 'n ’orrible 'eadache this hatternoon,
hand I stepped into the hapothecaries hand
says hi so the man, “Can vou nease me of an
’eadache ?” “Does it hacte ’ard,” says ’e.—
“Hexceedingly,” says hi, hand upon that ’e
gave me a Cephalic Pill, hand 'pon me ’onor
it cured me so quick that I ’ardly realized I ’ad
’ad an 'eadache.
Jr®” Headache is the favorite sign by which
nature makes known anv deviation whatever
from the natural state of the brain, and viewed
in this light in many be looked on a 9 a safe
guard intended to give notice of disease which
might otherwise escape attention, till too late to
be remedied : and its indications should never
be neglected. Headache may be classified un
der two names, viz : Symptomatic and Idiopath
ic. Symptomatic Headache is exceedingly
common and is the precursor of a great variety
of diseases, among which are Apoplexy, Gout,
Rheumatism and all febrile diseases. In its
nervons form it is syn pathetic of disease of the
stomach constituting sick headache, of hepatic
disease constituting bilious headache, o t worms,
constipation and other disorders of the bowels*
as well as venal and uterine affections. Diseases
of the heart are very frequently attended with
Headaches : Anaemia and plethora sre also affec
tions which frequently occasion headache. Idio
pathic Headache is also very common, being
usually distinguished by the name of nervous
headache, sometimes coming on suddenly in a
state of apparently sound health and prostrat
ing at once the mental and physical energies,
and in other instances it comes on slowly .herald
ed by depression of spirits or acerbity* of tem
per. In most instances the pain is in the front
of the head, over one or both eyes; and some
times provoking vomiting ; under this class
may also be named Nenralgia-
For the treatment of either class of Headache
the Cephalic Pills have been found a sure and
safe remedy, relieving the most acute pains in a
few minutes, and by its subtle power eradica
ting the diseases of which Headache is the uner
ring index.
Bridget.—Missus wants you to send her
box of Cephalic Glue, no, a Dottle of Prepared
Pills,—but I’m thinking that’s not just it neith
er ; but perhaps ye'll be afther knowing what
it is. Y e see she’s nigh dead and gone with the
Sick Headache, and wants some more of that
same as relaived her before.
Druggist.— You must mean Spalding’s Cephal
ic Pills.
Bridget.—Och ! sure now and you’ve sed it,
here's the quarthar and give me the Pills and
don’t be all day about it aither.
A Real Blessing.
Physician.— Well, Mrs. Jones, how is tha
headache ?
Mrs. Jones, Gone ! Doctor, all gone 1 the pili
you sent cured me in just twenty minutes, and
I wish you would send more so that I can have
t hem handy.
Physician.— You can get them at any Drug
,gists. Call for Cephalic Pills, I find they never
fail, and I recommend them in all cases of Head
ache.
Mrs. Jones.— l shall send for a box directly,
and shall tell all my suffering friends, for they
are a real blessing.
Twenty Millions of Dollars saved.—Mr.
Spalding has sold two millions of bottles of his
celebrated Prepared Glue and it is estimated
that each bottle saves at least ten dollars worth
of broken furniture, thus making au aggiegate
of twenty millions of dollars reclaimed from to
tal loss by this valuable invention. Having
made his Glue a household word, he now pro
poses to do the world still greater service by cur
ing all the aching heads with his Cephalic Pills,
and ifthey are as good as his Glue, Head
aches will soon vanish away like snow in
July.
Did you ever have the Sick Headache ?
Do you remember the throbbing temples, the
fevered brow, the loathing and disgust at the
sight of food. How totally unfit you were for
pleasure, conversation or study. One of the
Cephalic Pills would have relieved you from all
the sufferibg which you then experienced. For
this and other
have a box of hand to use as occasion
requires.
Fact worth knowing.—Spalding’s Cephal
ic Pills are a certain cure for Sick Heidache,
Bilious Headache. Nervous Headache, Costive
ness and General Debility.
Nervous Headache
IleadacJie.
By the use of these Pills the periodic attacks
of Nervous oj Sick Headache may be prevented ;
and if taken at the commencement of an attack
immediate relief from pain and sickness will be
obtained
They seldom fail in removing the Nausea and
Headache to which females are so subject.
They act gently upon the I owls,—removing
Costiveness.
For Literary Men, Students, Delicate Females,
and all persons of sedentary habits, they ate val
uable as a Laxative, improving the appetite, giv
ing tone and vigor to the digestive organs, and
restoring the natural elasticity and strength of
the whole system.
The CEPHALIC PILLS are the result of
long investigation and carefully conducted ex
periments, having been in use many years, dur
ing which time they have preventeli and icliev
ed a vast amount of pain and suffering from
Headache, whether originating in the nirvoua
system or from a deranged state of the stomach.

A ssrs. J. N. Harris & Co.— Gentlemen
Y< rr agent, Mr. A. F. Barnes, whilst passing
through our place, casually heard of a most ef
fectual cure of an obstinate case of salt rheum
in a member of my family, having politely
requested the facts of the case, I most cheer
fully comply with his request.
The subject of this remarkable, cure is my
son, and was attacked with salt rheum when
about a year and a half old. I applied from
time to time for aid to the most efficient phy
sicians in the eastern states, one of whom had
traveled in Europe ; but whilst he would at
times receive some temporarp relief, still th e
disease remained, and would break out occa.
sionally, with the most virulent type, until he
rrrived at the age of lourtecn years, when mv
eye providentially rested upon the advertise’,
merit of Dr. Weaver's Canker and Salt Rheum
Syrup and Cerete. lat ouce procured one
bottle, which on trial so encouraged me, that
I procured two more, together with the Cer
ate, and the result is that my son now is and
has been effectually cured c' that wretched
disease for the last three and a half yearn.
Respectfully yours, ALFRED PARKER.

REV. W. B. JACOBS :
Newark, N. J., June 6, 1860.
Messrs. Perry Davis & Son— Gantlemen
Allow me, unsolicited, to send you a word of
commendation for your Pain Killer. I have
used it in my family these several years, and
fonnd it all it claims to be. For Rheumatism,
Coughs Colds, Bures, Cholera tendencies and
difficulties, as well as diseases generally that
prevail in families, I regard the Pain Killer as
beyond all price, and as efficacious beyond
any medicine within my knowledge. We
keep it as our chief family medicine, and find
its use in ordinary cases worth more than any
doctor. The testimony of others among my
acquaintances and friends is equally favors
able. Many clergymen have spoken of it in
the highest terms as a family medicine. Mis
sionaries in repeated instances have said to me
in person and in their letters, that the Pain
Killer was by far the best medicine used in
heathen lands, and they use it for themselves
and families, and administer it to others
around them. Thus ranch lam inclinad to
say as an act of jnstice to yourselves; and as a
benefit to others. You are at liberty to use
this testimonial, if of any service.

Late Editor Christian Chronicle.
