ANOTHER B0BB0B, STUPID MANAGEMENT BY A STJPER INTENDENT MASHES THE LIFE , ' OUT OF SEVEN MEN, And Maims Several Others. Chester, Pa., May 22. This morning the Saratoga,a large iron steamship which was to be launched at Roach's ship yard, started from its blocking sooner than was expected killing and wounding many. Six dead bodies have been recovered. About forty men were under the Saratoga when she went off. The order was given for them to come off but was not heard. The names of the killed, as far as known are Edward Foley, John Nelson, Charles Wright and Edward Burke. The wounded are George Wolf, mortally, and Barney Cannon and Walter Parkinson seriously. It is thought that somo work men were killed and dragged into the water by the ship. The bodies of the dead are horribly mangled, one being iterally cut u halves, and others with their legs and arms torn off. lhe ship yard is thronged with mends and relatives of the victims, and presents a very distressing scene. The total number killed is seven. J.J. Crew, George Woof and Barney Cannon are the names of the others. The three persons wounded will probably recover. All the killed and wounded were workmen knocking blocks from under the keel. The scene was heart rending. Flags are at half mast throughout the town and work at the yard is stopped- The famil ies of the killed will be furnished money. The manager of the launch states that he found the ship ready to move and called for all hands to eetout from under before cutting loose. The men down by the after blocking evidently didn't hoar the order or didn't obey as they had fully five minutes Uoget out. A Baptist Parson and Ex-Judgre Convicted of Robbing the Revenue.

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 Iiself. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, is an o':d and truthful saying. Therefore, we advise all who are troubled with the eotnplaints now very prevalent -headache, indij 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 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 hen they feel the flret 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 instancous effect They will relieve the patient of headache in one or two hours, -and will rapidly cleanse the liver of surrounding bile, and will effectually pievent a bilious attack. They are sold by all Druggist. Prince Bismarck's Opinions Wanted. New York, May 22.

Bishop Spaulding, lately consecrated bishop of the Roman Catholic diocese of Peoria, preached at the cathedrat of the Holy Name yesterday morning to a very large audienee. He spoke at some length of the latter years of Christ's life, and then of the Catholic church as an organization. He alluded to its age, power.and glory, and said it was the grandest of all human works; grandest because the fepint of tiod is its foundation stone: greatest because of its diffusion through all lands and climes. The ad dress was one of great laudation ot the church and the beauties of its teachings and works. Nerves tb.at Qoiver. Heads that ache, stomachs that inflict dyspeptic torments, muscles and joints racked with the rheumatism, are infallibly restored to health by the celebrated elixir, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, a medicine prescribed by physicians, possessing in finite purity, and which no one takes in vain who is afflicted with any of the num erous complaints to which it is adapted. It frequently happens that so-called reme dies fail to produce a permanent enect. This is because they are merely palliatives, and therefore do not remove the cause ot the maladies, whose symptoms they after a time cease to ameliorate. This is notably the case with opiates and sedative drugs. It is not so, however, with Hos tetter's Bitters, which are a searching specific that conquers the disease as well as banishes its indicia. tS-Billy Turner is going to turn his at tention entirely to collections this summer. fit-Several witnesses in the Pilgrim poison case went to Rock Island this morn ing.
