'NumeroBi letters have been received from ome of the most distinguished Physicians in the country, and from the Professors of several Med leal Colleges, all recommending in the highest terms, the value of these medicines, and their so periorlty over other preparations for such com plaints as the proprietor I ecommends., , These medicines require considerable care in the preparation, and tho employment of different menstrua in successive operations to toko up the extractive matters, and In consequence are most frequently improperly made, and not unfrequontly much Impaired, if not rendered totally inert by injudicious and unskilful management of those nnacqnalnted with pharmaceutical preparations. Numerous preparations of Sarstparllla and of Bnchn, and various mode of preparing them have been given, all of which, of course, will differ according to the mode of preparation which each Individual may adopt. It is, therefore, of the highest consideration and importance to the pub lic and to the faculty thai there should be standard preparations of uniform strength, and possessing the most advantage. To effect this, and obviate the inconveniences alluded to, I have made a number of experiments to ascertain the most effectual means or extracting the virtues of Sar Biparllla and the Buchu, and to dli'dnver the most eligible form for their exhibition. The experi ment have resulted most favorably, and It is with much pieasnre I now offer to the public and the faculty my Compound Fluid Extract, which contain all the virtues of the medicines, and are the most active preparations of cither which can be made.

At the request of Davenport lumber men, a meeting of saw mill owners of this yicioity was held in Davenport yesterday afternoon, the object of the meeting being to take necessary steps toward advancing the price of luoibcr. Owing to the ab aci c J of Mr. J. S. Keator, of Moline, nothing definite was done, but it was de cided f iat the price ought to be raised.aDd several of the mills will do so. Mr. Weyerhaaser, of Weycrltauser & Denkman's miil. was interviewed this fore noon, lie stated that the lumber pros pect was duller than ever before; that tha rivers above were all falling again ; no logs could be floated out; and that there ere not enough logs out to run the mills on the Mississippi three weeks longer. For the past week all the mills in this vicinity, and also all tdong the river, have only been runnine with half a force of men. The Stillwater Messenger and Mr, Weycrhauser's private correspondent re port that there is no prospect for the usual June rise, and everything looks discour aging. Mr. V will leave on Monday to attend a special meeting of the Mississippi Log ging Co., to be held in the company's office at Beef Slough on the 18th. A despatch from above says: The water in the St. Croix and its tributaries is falling fast. The amount of logs in the main boom from the late rise is 15,000,000 feet, and the amount below the boom 3,000,000 feet. The boom started on May 25th, turning out 1,500,000 feet a day. A few log are runnimr into the boom from the Yellow, Clam, Nameacoy gin, Tamarac, Kettle and Wood rivers. The river has declined three feet at Tay lor's Falls, and is falling rapidly. But a few more logs can reach the boom on the present rue. The drives on all streams are uncertain, unless we get more rain. Fair short logs are selling at ?8, loose, below tLe Loom. It is to be hoped that our mills will pro cure enough logs to enable them to run the balance of the season for to shut down during the coming month would be a great misfortune to a large force of la borers. A Point on Which the "Doctors Agree. Physician who have tested Hostettcr's Stomach Bitters concur iu representing it to be an eminently safe stimulant, fur pref erable to the ordinary liquors of commerce, not only because it is medicated, but be cause it is infinitely pure. Its alcoholic basis is the finest old rye, and this is tem pered and rendered medicinal by the cura tive ingredients of botanic origin which it holds in solution. It has often, been imi tated, but never rivalled, and is to-day .'J30 leading tonic, diuretic and aperient cf America. Malarial fevers are prevented and remedied by it, and it is a thoroughly reliable medicine In cases of dyspepsia. constipation, liver complaint, rheumatism, gout, nervousness, urinary and uterine affections. It improves the appetite, in creasing the bodily stamina, checks pre mature decay, and as a sustaining and com forting cordial for the aged and infirm is HEALTH COMMISSIONERS. What are They Going-to Do? The city council, at. it 3 last meeting. ppointed four gentlemen as health com missioners. JNow what are these tour men going todo? In accepting the appointment they have tacitly agreed to perform the duties of the office, and furthermore, by accepting they, in fact, claim the knowl edge and ability to perform all the duties of their office, They are judges of the aw in all matters that appertain to their duties and the execution ot the same. They possess all the police authority that is by law and custom guaranteed to the city. Will not the public, if these state ments be true, hold them responsible for whatever serious results may come from any negligence of duty or incompetenco on their part.. The medical fraternity agree that one-third of all deaths are from the diseases which belong to the preventable causes; most of the zymotic (epidemic and contagious) are preventable, and many are filth disease, so called. To guard against those seems to be understood to be the duty of these gentlemen. In 1869 the citizens association of New York city, said "The daily records of the medical gen tlemen who have carried cn the work of sanitary inspection are full of testimony to the fact that tho prevalence of lever (typhoid and typhus), small-pox, infantile diarrhoea and dysentery, with excessive sickness and death-rates, are invariably found associated with certain well-defined and local conditions." The correction of any such dangerous lo cal conditions in this city belongs to the four gentlemen whom the council has named. They claim to be capable, wil they do it? Dr. Rush one of the keenest of observers wrote that the means of pre- ventiog pestilential fevers is as much under the power of human reason and in dustry as the means of preventing ths evils of ligKtning or common fire. So satisfied was he of the truth of this opin ion that he looked tor the time when our courts of law should punish cities and vil lages for permitting any of the sources of bilious or malignant fever to exist within their jurisdiction; and, we believe, it was Florence Nightingale who taid there can be no stronger condemnation of any town than the outbreak of a fatal epidemic in it Should there be one in this city, on whom will the responsibility rest? What do these gentlemen say to that' well defined principle of law that whoever accelerates death causes it ? The public will expect these four men to know how safely to dispose of garbage and dead animals how to control gas companies sufficiently . . i f a to prevent tnem irom poisoning the air and soil; to teach practical plumbers how to make traps that will not permit the sewer gases to escape ioto the bath-rooms and chambers; and drain builders to allow descent enough in their drains to carry off the water; and sewer buildings to have them so tight and with fall enough to pre vent the escape of gas and carry off the feculence that comes often back in airy forms into our noses. The f tnelis of city are not only disgusting, they are pois onous. "The public health is great ana material mterest, aD to the hands of these gentl men together with tho city council is entruste this interest. We believe the people wi co-operate in this work -and it should be begun at once. To all we commend th words of Dr. Sehenck of the St. Louis Female Hospital, who eays: Av 3111 the auoip i.i;ir i)J house on damp ground; the pool, the ditbh. the gu ter, the water course, the foul privy, th cesspool, the drain; any accumulation or deposit of organic matter. It you do not place the ssej into the grouud it will not grow; it you uo not sow you will not reap neither will you get the geriya of disease if you do not have around you the mate rial upon which they subsist. Cultivate cleanliness; the voice of God thunders a of old "wash and be clean. ' Clean in per sou and house; the food you eat, the water you drink cd the air you breathe; clean in thought tr;d n life, lhe air should be fres from conUuilnacixin with poison miasm, from detective drainage, daoompo sition, waste, either vegetable or aoinju The water should bo guarded from all itn purities, such as are peroolated from filthy sources, as cess pooln, privies, pig-styles or the waste -of manufactories. Pure air pure water, food fresh, saaj, wholesome well cooked and taken in due proportion; and sunlight are sources of healthful life. Card from Marshal Jauuiags &f Davei port.

I now emphatically state that I had not the mcst remote idea of withdrawing said suit, even if it could be attained by the payment of a solitary Dickie. I be lieve I performed an honest duty in vin dicating one of onr city ordinances, and will do so again if the case presents itself. This circuitous movement, trying to bolster up a case, the merits of which the public can iudge, is utterly futile and only dis plays the weakness ot the cause it seeks to uphold.
