The standard remedies for all diseases of the lungs are Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup, Schenck's Skb Wbbd Tonic, and Schenck s Mandrake Pill,s and if taken before the lungs are destroyed, a speedy cure is effeted. To these three medicines Dr. J. H. Schenk, of Philadelphia, owes his unrivalled sucess in the treatment of pulmonary disease. The Pulmonic Syrup ripens the morbid matters la the lungs; nature throws it off by easy expect oration, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a slight cough will throw it ff, the patient has rest and the lungs begin to heal . " To enable the pulmonic syrup to do this, Schenk's Sea Weed Tonic must be freely used to 1 cleanse the stomach and liver. Schenck's Man drake Pills act on the liver, removing all obstruc tions, relax the gall bladder, the bile starts freely and the liver is soon recieved. Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic is a trentle stimulant and alterative; the alkali or which it is composed mixes with the food and prevents sourine. It as sists the digestion by toning up the stomach to a healthy condition, so that the food and the Pul monic syrup will make good Diood; then the luiifjs heal, and the paiient will surely get well if care is taken to prevent fresh cold. All who wish to consult Dr. fccneuit, either per- j sonally or by letter, can do so at his principal office corner of Sixth and arch Sts., Philadelphia, every Monday. Scbenks medicines are solo by an druggists throughout the country. Chicago, 111., March 15. Stephen S. Jones, editor of the Religio-Philosophical Journal, 127 Fourth ayenue, was shot dead in his office this afternoon by Dr. W. C. Pike, who immediately gave himself up. Jones lives with his family at St. Charles. 111., is 65 years old, and repuced wealthy. It appears that Pike and his wife have been rooming in Jones's building this winter without paying rent, and it is sur mised that this may have caused the trouble. Pike alleged as the reason for the killing that Jones seduced his wife, and he produces a confession signed by bis wife to that effect. Mrs. Pike enufirins her husband's story, but the friends of the deceased declare he was incapable of the alleged crime. All parties involved are spiritualists, and the affair causes consider able excitement. Pike was held this afternoon without bail to the criminal court. Pike is a phrenologist and also spiritualist, and is about 57 years old. Death of Lewis Hies From Excitement. Boston, March 16.

TES AMEBICAW BOSTOBT. HOUSE From the Upper Mlseisispplan, Dec. 19, 1844, History of the Early Proceedings and Organization of Rock Island Cotmty. In 1833, the legislature passed an act declaring that all the territory embraced within the following boundaries, viz Commencing in the middle of the channe of the Mississippi river, on the north line of toweshin 15 noith, and west of the fourth principal meridian, thence runbinj eastwardly on said line to the fourth pnn cipal meridian, thence north to the middle of the channel of Rock river, thense up the middle of said channel to the Marias d'Ogee Slough; thence along the middle of said slough to the middle of the channel of the Mississippi river; thence down alcng the middle 'of eaid channel to the place ot beginuing, should be erected into a county to be known by the name of Rock Island In pursuance ot the provisions of said act. due notice was given to the legal voters of said county, to meet at the house of John Barrell, hsqr.,in larnhamsburg (where J-aines Copp resides) on Monday the 5th day of July, 1833, to elect three county nommissioners, one sheriff, one coroner, three justices of the peace, and three constables. Accordingly they met on said day and organized by choosing Joseph Danforth, Esqr., Joel Wells, Sen. Esqr., and Wm. II. Sims, judges, and the Hon. Joseph Con way and W. Thompson, clerks- Joel Thompson, Esq., gave the first vote. There were 65 votes given. Of these there were given tor sheriff, to B. K. Pike w Lucius Wells 26 FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONEKS. Geo.

BSf It is really surprising that two of Molino's wealthiest citizens should have plans laid for a donation, that their plans should comprehend the same obiect and be matured so nearly at the same moment Mr. Wheelock, however, is ahead this time, but there are other objects woich Mr A.I- xvtKinson can lavisn Lis generosity upon and it will be appreciated, even if th congresssional appropriation for the water power did fail to pass. JBSrlhe lurner society or this city have about 600 volumes of books in the lierman language, and their committee on library have ordered, and expect in a few days. 400 volumes more, making in all a library of 1,000 volumes. The Ger man element of Moline is among the best of our citizens and it is a noticeable fact that education is considered a necessary standard to solidity. There is no better informed class of men anywhere than the Germans of Moline. EST" Mr. Wheelock must feel bored to death oyer the assumed interpretation of his object in presenting the library build ing to the city. The fact of the case is that he concluded to do as he did from motives of disinterested generosity. He is and always has been one of the most public spirited men in Moline, and on more than one occasion has voluntarily made donations in a quiet unostentatious manner, which, to this day, outside of the parties directly interested, are unknown. The most ridiculously absurd idea of all the assumed reasons for his gift is the egotistical presumption of the Union that he was influenced by an article in tha paper, as if anybody ever was guilty of such an act of insanity as to be governed by its opinioos.

An ice gorge has formed in the Mis souri river a short distance north of this citv and considerable damage to property is anticipated. Already the adiacent terri tory is Kubuierjted aud a number of light river crafts sunk or swept away in the flood. Omaha, March 16. The Missouri river is just now full ot floating ice. the result ot the recent cold suap, and an immense ice gorge has formed in the big bend in a northeasterly direction from the smelting works causing the stream to rise at that point and overflow the bottoms on the Iowa side for over a quarter of amile opposite the smelting works, the water pours down over the Iowa bank into the mam channel forminu a series of falls from four to six feet in height and over two hundred in number. At one place, the southernmost point, the fall is forty to sixty feet wide and about six feet high. This cut-off is wlut has been expected tor several years, it having been an undisputed fact that it must come sooner or later. Frozen ground may prevent a channel forming or the gorge may break too soon, but it will ulti mately be made. The Betnrn of P.tr B Sweeney. New Iop.K, March 16. Peter Sweeney, whose name was associated with Boss Tweed io the great ring swindles and who has been in exile for the past five years has returned. He has not been taken into custody because it was arrang ed with the attorney general that if he would return and be present at the trial against him all proceedings civil and criminal so far as arresting him should be suspended during the trial and for 30 days afterward. The trial is Bet down for the 3d of April. The claim against Sweeney is that he is liable in the same way that i weed was rendered liable in the suit that was recently tried against him and in which there was a verdict for the people of $6,000,000 of dollars. Huntington Wells, George Y and Edward Corbin were elected bles. Of those who voted at the election 20 25 are niw living in the county. On the 8th of the same July, the com missioners met at John Barrell's and orcauized by choosing Joseph Conway clerk. As the county seat had not been fixed upon, the court ordered that elections and courts should be held at John Barrell's, m Farnhatnsburg. Joseph Wells, Sen., Esq., was appointed treasurer and assessor. At the March term 1S34, Asaph Wells and Joel Wells, Jr., were appointed super visors. A petition was made to the postmaster general, and made a matter of record, requesting that a post office might be established at the court house, and Joseph Conway be appointed post master. Said petition was afterwards granted. At the June term 1834, the county was laid off into two election precincts, called Upper and Lower. Asaph Wells, James Haskell and T. L. Galpin were appointed judges in the Upper precinct, and Joel Wells. Sen., W. T. Brasher and Wm. Carr judges in the Lower precinct. lne nrst term or tne circuit court was held in April 1834, at the house of John Barrell, by Hon. R. M. Young, Judge. Joseph Conway, Clerk. B. F. Pike, Sheriff.

A brutal murder was committed in In diana the other day by a lot ot drunken Republican roughs, that would have been heralded far aod wide over the land with black lettered head lines if it had occurred in Louisiana. But the Republican papers do Dot seem to have heard of this political outrage, aod when their attention is called to it will doubtless excuse it as a drunken row. The following report from the Cin cinnati Gazette will probably be accepted as truthful, by Republicans at least: GusEssBORoroH.Ind., March 12 Last Monday night, after the presidential contest was known to have been decided in favor of Hayes and Wheeler, some of the Republican concluded that a little jol lification was in order, and accordingly fired a sa lute i 1S5 rounds. After thesalnte had been fired, son e of the more enthusiastic of the party couM see nothing worthy their attention except a large roos ter which the Democrats had painted and put upon their neaaquariers on me west siae 01 tne equare. i Ins they determined to nave. It would seem as thongh the Democrats anticipa ted an attack on their fowl, and staiioned eight or ten men on the roof of the building, and two or three in the room, armed with revolvers, brick bats, etc., to defend the emblem of their victory over Harrison, and when the Republican boys stormed the fort, expec'ing to capture the thing with ease, they met with such a shower of bullets and bats as to cause tnem to oeat an ignomiuous retreat. They rallied, however, and soon cleared the roof and car ried off the much coveted prize. For this folly one poor fellow has surrendered his life, and another is now nnder arrest charged with manslaughter. Fred. Chance died this morning from the effect of Injuries sustained while defend ing the rooster, and Hi. Clark, of the assaulting par ty, nas Decn arresiea, cnargei with inmcuiig tne injuries. What is the difference between this and the worst of the political riots in the southern states ? Yet the Republican press will be very quick to resent the in justice ot holding that party responsible for this outrage. At the same time the murder of a Mr. WTebber in Louisiana. last week, wholly unconnected with politics as far as all the evidence so Jfar received shows, is paraded as a political crime for which the Democratic party of that state is responsible. Perhaps a little consideration of this Indiana outrage will enable them to understand that there is no such thing as a political murder, and that the crimes of individuals should not be fastened upon whole parties.
