Spring is a trying season. Indications 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, rntil the disorder has time to de velop ijself. 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 eomplaiuts 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 remedy so harm less and decisive in its action. It at once strikes at the root of the disease and produces a healthy lone to the system. People never need suffer from any disease arising from a disordered condition of the liver if thev would take this excellaut medicine When they feel the fl'st indications of the malady. Families leaving home for the summer months should take three or four boxes of these p:lls with them. They have au almost instaueotis effect. They will relieve the patient of headache in one or tvc hours, and will rapidly cleanse the liver ol surrounding bile, and will effectually pievent a bilious attack. They are sold by all Druggist. St. Petersburg, May 14. A disDatch official contradicts the reported attempt of the Russians to cross the Dauube at lievi and deteat on the 9th. The Times Bucha rest correspondent says it is stated in offi cial circles that a Turkish vessel built in Pesth, completed and arrived in Danube above Kalafat, and the Turks had com menced a violent bombardment of that Dlace on the streets, to distract the atten tion of the Roumanians. After the firing ceased the vessel passed the Roumanian batteries unharmed. Extensive move ments of Turkish cavalry are observed from the Roumanian side of the Danube. The Turks threaten to bombard Simnitaa and to cross the river afterwards and plunder the town. Chicago, May 14. Late editions of the morning papers here have New York spe cials giving details ot the sinking of a Turkish monitor by Russian batteries be fore Ibrail. The entire Turkish fleet was bombarding that fortress and a fierce deadly battle was raginjr. One Russian battery fired at the Coukfigdii, as the ves sel was called, and two shells struck the monitor which sunk in less than a minute, without explosion. The vessel was to miles away and the Jlussuris immediately attempted to rescue the drowning, and dispatched a boat for that purpose, but they only captured the flair, finding but one ot tne crew, lhe lurks uiaae no effort whatever to succor their comrades Grand Duke Nicholas immediately apprised the Kmperor Alexander of the facts and the Czar replied asking for particulars. According to the rules of Russian service both officers and the man who aimed the piece of artillery are entitled to receive the grand cross of St. George. Batoum. May 11. About 5 o'clock this i morning, me uussians, urgtiy auumentea, advanced with field artillery aud made a Furious attack upon the heights defending Batoum, on the landside, occupied by Bashi Bazourks. The Ottoman troops were entrenched andopened a terrible, well sustained of cannon and musketry which literally mowed the Russians down in swathes. They fell by scores and hun dreds on the plain below the Turkish osi tions. During their attempts to make way against this fire a body of Turkish horse and foot, taking advantage of the thick forest, broke forth upon the flank of the hussian column and effected great slaughttr, the Muscovites being upon perfectly open ground and having no choice but to fight or fly. In a short time the spot, which was the scene of this flank mcve.hecame covered with dead and dyins Russians, but the enemy quickly brought up reinforcements and the battle was renewed with much determination, For many hours the efforts of the sssail- ants were desperately maintained, but towards midday their artillery fire gradu ally slackened and they at length withdrew after suffering considerable losses. An eve witness of this important engagement testifies that the Ottoman soldiers behaved admirably. They had, however, during a great part of the action the advantage of entrenchments on high ground, and it i due to this fact no doubt that their losses, compared to those of the Russians, wer insignificant, The victory was won by the extraordinary courage of the Bashi lia zouks. The dead and wounded Russians PTOppd 4.0(H). The encaeemeet lasted over eicht hours actual fJchtinff. The last t f the Russians did not withdraw until near midnight. J he Kussians lost many guns.

Helmbold's Buchu has long been known as one of the most valuable medicines attainable in cer tain classes of diseases, such as dyspepsia, chronic rheumatism, dropsy, cutaneous affections, and especially affections of the urinary organs. As a diuretic, it is supe rior to almost an other medicine in use, and the great care with which it is pre pared, the ubsolute purity ot the prepara tion, and the diligence used in the selection of the crude material, have made it known far and wide as a reliable and effective preparation, and one that can always be used with safety aud benefit. The great success of Helm bold s Bucbu has led to the production ot many spurious prepara tions, which are made cheaply and placed upon the market to be sold ou the reputa tion acquired by ilelm hold's original pre paration.
