Gbhbva, July 16. The Board of Arbi tration rnet to-day. A large quantity of printed matter was submitted to the .Board and exchanged by the agents of Great Britain- and the United States. No other business was done, the court adjourning after a session of less than thirty minutes duration. Gbhbva, July 17. The Board assembled to-day an hour earlier than usual. The proceedings are somewhat delayed in conse quence of the difference of languages spoken by the members of the court, which ren ders it a tedious transaction, and explana tions are necessary. But all the prelimina ries have been settled, and the Board has finally decided to take up the case of each ship seriatim. Gbhbva, July 18. The British agent to day presented a demurrer, praying that the Tribunal exclude the cases of the Tallahas see, Chickamauga, Sumter, Nashville, Retri bution, Boston, Scllie, Jeff. Davis, V. H. Joy, and Music. A summary of the Ameri can argument, and a statement in the case of the Florida, were presented to-day. Gbhbva, July 19. To-day's session lasted from 1 until 4 o'clock. All the members of the Board were present. The English and American counsel were engaged the greater part of the day yesterday, and until a late hour last night, in preparing their plead ings.

Hereafter the Board will hold five sessions per week, sitting every day except Saturdays and Sundays. Geneva. Julv 22. The Board of Arbitra- i; nn maaiiambled this after neon, about 1 o'clock.

July 24. The Board of Arbitra tion is now fairly at work, and its labors are excessive. Sir Alexander Cockburn has re mained within his hotel three days. Seri ous embarrassment has been caused to the Board of Arbitration by the English prote-t against the consideration of any evidence or argument showing animus on the part of Great Britain.

Medical Guesswork. The profession al treatmentof di lease is in a great meas ure experimental. If one medicine fails another is tried, and sometimes this hit-or-miss practice is j ursued until the resources of the faculty is exhausted. This, in the truest sense of the word, is empiricism. But when the physician has made a valuable discovery, he is called by his professional brethren an Empiric because he advertises the result of his labor and research. When Dr. Walker, of California, introduced his celebrated Vinegar Bitters as a remedy for all blood diseases, he struck a tremendous blow at tho empirical system, as applied in our hospitals, and in private practice. It was soon apparent that his medicine was not a mere palliative or alloviative that only modified the symptoms oi a disorder; tmt mat it reached the very source of the malady in the blood and the secretions, and literally rooted it out. The process of renovation and disin fection went on togethor ; vigor was imparted to the oreans from which the virus of disease had been expelled.

There is nothing more remarkable in the history of nations than tho rapid development and growth in wealth and population of our Territories. The as sessment returns of the State of Mis souri for the year 1872 give more than a shadow of probability to the boast of ambitious St. Louisiana, who claim that their btate is destined to become the first in the Union. Missouri ha3 36,092,023 acres of land, which is fairly valued to day at $212,594,426, and with her cities, 'towns, and the valuable buildings in the farming districts, shows an aggregate rral estate valuation of $427,533,142.

It cannot but add immensely to his fame, and tade high rank among tne poetical works ot American authors. The language is chaste and beautiful ; the plot original, artistic, and poetical : and the versification, unlike that of most ot his other efforts, perfect." During a berry hunt at Danbury, Ct., Monday, a New York visitor came on a cluster of strawberry vines, and went through them in search of a remnant of the delicious truit. lie didn t nnd it, but when he awoke the next morning it was only with one eye, the other being eigaged in holding the cheek: which had marched over it during the night. They didn't find his mouth until near noon, when it was discovered just back of his left ear enjoying the shade. The strawberry plants must have been mercury vines, the doctors say. A soldier during the war entered a drinkine saloon and found there a jovial chaplain, half seas over, who asked him what command he belonged to. " To the Illinois," replied the sol dier, and in turn asked, " What com mand do you beloDg to ?" " I belong, sir," replied the chaplain, " to the army of the lxrd." " Well," replied the sol dier, " all I've got to say is that you are a long ways from headquarters.' The Markets. NEW YORK.

They are the Great Blood Purifiet and a Life-giving Principle, a Perfect Renovator and Invigorator of the System, carrying off all poisonous matter and restoring the blood to a healthy condition, enriching it, refreshing and invigorating both mind and body. They are easy of administration, prompt in their action, certain in their results, safe and reliable in all forms of disease. No Person can take these Bitters accord ing to directions, and remain long unwell, provided their bones are not destroyed by mineral poison orothet means, and the vital organs wasted beyond the point ot repair. , , .

Fiu, Tape, and other Worms, lurking in the system of so many thousands, are effectually de stroyed and removed. Says a distinguished physiol ogist: There is scarcely an individual upon the face of the earth whose body is exempt from the presence of worms. It is not upon the healthy elements of the body that worms exist, but uoon the diseased humors and slimy deposits that breed these living monsters of disease. No svstem ot Medicine, no vermituees. no anthelmin tics, will free the system fiom worms like these Bit- 1 ters. Mechanical Diseases, Persons engaged in Paints and Mineral such as Plumbers, Type-setters, Gold-beaters, and Miners, as they advance in life, will be subject to paralysis of the Bowels. To guard against this take a dose of Walker's Vinegar Bitters once or twice a week, as a Preventive. Billons, Remittent, and Intermittent Fevers, which are so prevalent in the valleys of our great rivers throughout the United States, especially those of the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Iflinois, Ten nessee, Cumberland, Arkansas, Red, Colorado, Brazos, Rio Grande, Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Roan oke, James, and many others, with their vast tributa ries, throughout our entire country during the Summer and Autumn, and remarkably so during seasons ol unusual heat and dryness, are invariably accompanied by extensive derangements of the stomach and liver, and other abdominal viscera. There are always more or less obstructions of the liver, a weakness and irritable state of the stomach, and great torpor of the bowels, being clogged up with vitiated accumulations. In their treat ment, a purgative, exerting a powerful influence upon these various organs, is essentially necessary. There is no cathartic for the purpose equal to Dr. J. Walker's Vinegar Bitters, as they will speedily remove the dark-colored viscid matter with which the bowels are loaded, at the same time stimulating the secretions ol the liver, and generally restoring the healWiy functions of the digestive organs.

Dr. Walker California Tlnegar Bitters act on all these cases in a similar manner. By purifying the Blood they remove the cause, and by resolving away the effects of the inflammation (the tubercular deposits) the affected parts receive health, and a permanent cure is effected. The properties of Dr. Walker's Vinegaf Bitters are Aperient, Diaphoretic and Carminative, Nutritious, Laxative, Diuretic, Sedative, Counter-irritant, Sudorific, Alterative, and Anti-Bilious. The Aperient and mild Laxative properties of Dr. Walker's Vinegar Bitters are the best safe guard in all cases of eruptions and malignant fevers, their balsamic, healing, and soothing properties protect the humors of the fauces. Their Sedative properties allay pain in the nervous system, stomach, and bowels, either from inflammation, wind, colic, cramps, etc Their Counter-irritant influence extends throughout the svstem. Their Diuretic oronerties act on the Kid neys, correcting and regulating the flow of urine. Their Anti-Bilious properties stimulate the liver, in the secre tion of bile, and its discharges through the biliary ducts. and are saperior to all remedial agents, for the cure of litiious v ever, r ever and Ague, etc Fortify the body against dlneaie by puri fying alt its fluids with Vinegar Bitters. No epi demic can take hold of a svstem thus forearmed. The liver, the stomach, the bowels, the kidneys, and the nerves are rendered disease-proot ty tins great invig orant. Directions.
