Indiciftions of sick ness should at once be attended to. Fatal diseases may be caused by allowing the bowels to become constipated and the system to remain In a disor dered condition, rnti! the disorder has time to de ve!oo iiself. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, is an old and truthful saying. Therefore, we advise all who are troubled with the complaints now very prevalent -headache, indiges tion, disordered liver, want of appetite, nausea, or feverish skin, to take, without delay, Schenck's Mandrake Pills. We know of no r.-medy so harm less and decisiveiuitsacti.nl. It at once strikes i at the root of the disease and produces a healthy tone to the system. People never need suffer from any disease arising from a 'disordered condition of the liver if they would take this excellant medicine when they fee! the fl'st indications of the malady. Families leaving home for the summer months should take three or four boxes of these pills with them. They have an almost lnstancous effect. They will relicv the patient of headache in one or t hours, and will rapidly cleanse the liver of surrounding bile, and will effectually pievent a bilious attack. They are sold by all Druggist.

The pro ceedings in this case having been forwarded to the secretary of war, have been most carefully considered and have been sub mitted to the president, who approves the hi'drig and sentence, but is pleased to mit igate the latter to suspension Irou rank and piy for two years irom the ISth of May, 1ST". Maj. Reno's conduct toward the wile of an absent officer and in u:ing the whole force of his power as command ing officer of a poft to gratify his resent ment against her cannot be too strongly condemned; but after long deliberation upon all the circumstances of the case, as show i in the iccord of the trial, it is thought that his grave offences, grave as they are, do not warrant a sentence of dis missal and all its consequences upon one who has for twenty years borne the repu tation of a brave man and an honorable officer aod has maintained that reputation upon the battle fields of rebellion and in contests with the Indians. The president has therefore modified the sentence, and it is hoped that Maj. Reno will appreciate :the clemency thus shown him, as well as Ithe very reprehensible character of the acts of which he was found guilty. (Signed,) Geo, W. McCrary. HOST. SAMUEL S. COX.

The south, he said, will stand by the Detuj cratic party and members will all go intg Democratic caucus without hesitation and in full force. The idea that Hayes's policy woula draw, from the Democratic ranks was a false one, but would rather strength en the party by causing a split m the Itf publican 1 action. THE EXTRA SESSION. lie thought the postponement of the ex tra session a good thing for Pemocrats and for the country, as there were plenty of banks that would advance money' to run the army, which army might, he thought, ba dispensed with, had we a wise Indian policy tuch as that of Canada. THE SPEAKERSHIP. Regarding the speakership Mr. Cox refused to talk except to say that the reports industriously circulated to the effect that Mr. Randall had already a majority of the caucus were without the slightest foundation. He could, he said, make as good a showing for the position as any one named, but there is as yet nothing definite for any one. The members were not going to repeat the blunders of other days and were not going to Washinnton pledged to Randall or any one else. Pel ton, be said, was already io the field wri ting letters in Ratdill s interest despite the fact that his (Randall's) ratings had lost the presidency for Tilden. As to what this meant he would not venture an expression, but of its results he had noth ing to fear except the party generally. THE PRESIDENTIAL QUESTION. . . Mr. Cox hinted broadly at an early re- right, will learn that he does not possess unlimited control of the people. The course of the board last evening e hows a deter mination to act independently of the wishes of the citizens and the conduct of the sec retary in refusing to give the proceedings to the public savors strongly of a desire to avoid publication of business not strictly in accordance with the desires of a patient community, Kew York Marliet.
