change matters were painfully blue, and quo

from 88 to 82, which was taken as an indi

proceedings against Kenyon Cox A Co., in

the advance in the Bank of England rate of
discount to 6 per cent, and the large sale of
stocks carried by the bankB on margins, the
holders of which could not put up any more

The usual quietness that pervades the na
tional capital during the recess of Congress
was rudely broken on Saturday afternoon, the
10th inst.. by a first-class sensation the at
tempted assassination of ex-Senator Pomeroy
at the hands of ex-Congressman Martin F.
Conway. Pomeroy, it seems, was walking np
one of the avenues, when he met Conway,
who, without a word of warning, drew a re
volver ana area tnree snots in rapiea succes
sion at the corpulent ex-Senator, one of which
took effect in the right breast, just below the
nipple. He then put up his pistol and started
to walk off, but was stopped by Mr. Jerome
B. Stillson, a prominent journalist, who
demanded of him an explanation of bis mur
derous conduct. Conway simply replied, "He
has ruined myself and family," surrendered
his piBtol to Stillson, and accompanied that
gentleman to the station-house. Pomeroy,
who had fallen to the pavement, was
assisted to a carriage and driven to his resi
dence, where an examination revealed the
gratifying fact that his wound was simply
an abrasion. The ball had passed through two
thicknesses of his coat, also his vest and
Bhirt, and its force was thereby so far spent
that it produced no further damage than
merely breaking the skin, and scarcely bring
ing blood. One of the shots passed through
the ex-Senator's hat, closely grazing his head,
the other missing him entirely. Pomeroy says
he never had any controversy with Conway,
and has not the remotest idea of the cause of
the attack. Conway has not resided with his
wife for several years, she having left him on
account of his failure to support her. She
is a clerk in the Treasury Department, having
received the appoiutmont ou the recommenda
tion of Pomeroy. Conway is a native of
Baltimore, and a printer by trade. He
studied law, emigrated to Kansas, and was
elected to Congress, having served one
term. He was afterward appointed by
President Jonnson (Jousm to Alarseiiiss,
but was removed bv President Grant.
It is evident that Conway is weak in both mind
and body, and was laboring under an attack
of temporary insanity at the time. . . .It is au

Some 15.000 laborers will be eucaed on the

be impossible for them to obtaiu employment :

will then march over the Northern States of

each of them. The next step will
be annexation by vote of the peo

of America :
The approaching close of another
year brings with it the occasion for re
newed thanksgiving ana acKnowieag
ment to the Almighty Ruler of the Uni
verse for the unnumbered mercies which
he has bestowed upon us. Abundant
harvests have been among the rewards
of industry. With local exceptions,
health has been among the blessings en
joyed. Tranquillity at home, and peace
with other nations, have prevailed.
Frugal industry is regaining its merited
recognition, and its merited rewards.
Gradually, but, under the providence of
God, surely as we trust, the
nation is recoverintr from the
lineA-insf results of a dreadful
civil strife. For these and all the
other mercies vouchsafed, it becomes
us as a people to return heartfelt and
grateful acknowledgements, ana witn
our thanksgiving we may unite prayers
for the cessation of local and temporary
suffering. I therefore recommend that
on Thursday, the 27th day of November
next, the people meet in their respect
ive places of worship to make their
acknowledgments to Almighty God for
filis bounties and His protection, and
to offer to Him prayers for their continu
ance. In witness whereof I have hereunto
set my hand and caused the seal of the
United States to be athxed.

Physical infirmities are the lot of all. Millions
are always sick. No man, woman or child is uni
formly in perfect health. Much, however, of the
sickness and suffering which render life a burden
to so many of our fellow beings is duo to careless
ness and neglect. A mighty antidote to the lead-
ing causes of disease has been provided. It is as
harmless as It Is efficient. No poisonous drug en
ters into its composition. It is an undented stim
ulant, tonic and aperient, of which every ingredi
ent is vegetable. This unexceptionable prevent
ive and restorative medicine is not a " new thing
under the sun." Bostetter's Stomach Bitters will
soon have been before the world a quarter of a

they not been strengthened and sustained by this
wholesome stimulant. The rapidity with which
minor ailments often become, wben neglected, ob

famous for the immediate check which it gives to
these breeders of deadly disorders. The sensation
of languor, the sick headache, the nervousness,
the indisposition to exertion, the nausea, the

are Intended to premonish us of the approach of

The Deacon's Dog.
The San Francisco Nerre-Letter re
lates how, many years ago, at a camp
meeting, Brother Higgins, a good man,
but passionately lona oi aogs, came in
one day accompanied by a black-and-
tan nouna. oomeDoay asKea mm to
address the congregation, and he
mounted the stand for the purpose, and
his dog sat down upon his haunches
mmediately in front, looking at his
master. In the midst of the discourse,
which entertained us much, another dog
came up, and, after a few social sniffs at
Brother Higgins' doer, began to examine
the hind leg of the latter with his teeth,
apparently lor tne purpose oi ascertain
ing if it was tender. An animated con
test ensued, and one of the congregation
came forward for the purpose of sepa
rating the animals. His efiorts were
not wholly successf uL He would snatch
at the leg of Higgins' dog, but before
his hand got there, the yellow dog
would be on that side, and would prob
ably take an incidental and cursory bite
at the deacon's hand. Brother Higgins
paused in his discourse and watched the
deacon. Then he exclaimed, " Spit in
his eye, Brother Thompson ; spit in the
hound's eye." Brother Thompson did,
and the ngnt enaea. .But l just warn
to say. continued Mr. iliggms, tnat out
side of the sanctuary, that dog of mine
can eat up any salmon-colored animal
in the State, and then chaw up the bones
of its ancestors for four generations
without turning a hair ! You understand
me. Then the services proceeded.
