Lons, June 20. It is stated that the deposits in the National Bank of the State of Missouri were, yesterday, $2,000, 000. Included in this were $240,000 belonging to the city,and $130,000 officially placed there by the assignees, registers, and masters in chancery all secured by bonds. It is claimed the depositors will be paid in full, of which 50 cents on the dollar will be paid very soon, the assets of the bank being amply iufficient for this purpose. It is also said the affairs of the bank were examined by a special exam iner from the treasury department a few weeks ago, which resulted in the election of a new board of directors. Four new men were elected and at the next meeting ot the board an examination ot the eouur tion of the bank was made and it was voted to wind up the business. Since then no new business has been taken by the bank. Great shriakage in real estate and other values are the principal causes of the suspension. ST.

For three years afterwards I was unable to sing at all. The first attack of Catarrh had left my nasal organs and throat so sensitive that the slightest cold wonld bring on a fresh attack, leaving me prostrated. . In this way I continued to suffer, f he last altack, the severest I ever had, was terrible. I suffered the most excruciating pain in my head. was so hoarse as to be scarcely able to speak, end coughing incessantly.

Other remedies advertised as cures for Consumption, probably contain opium, which is a somewhat dau gerous drug in all cases, and if taken freely by con sumptive patients, it must do great injury; for its tendency is to confine the morbid matter in the system, which, ot course, must make a cure impos sible. Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup is war-acted not to contain a particle of opium; it is composed of powerful but, harmless herbs, which act on the lnns, liver, stomach and blood, and thus corrects all morbid secretions, and expel ail the diseased matter from the body .

Mayor. &c.: Dear Sir, The question submitted by you to me, viz: Whether the Mavor of your oity has a casting vote in case of a tie in the City Council on the question of the passage ot an ordinance, has been con sidered by me with some care. Section 19 and 29 of chapter 24 of the revised statutes ot 187 1, for the mcorpo ration of cities and villages under which your city is incorporated, seems to me to be decisive ot the question, and alarms the right of the Mayor to vote iu Buch cases. The 20th section makes him a member of the City Council, and Section 19 pro vides that in case ot a tie he shall give a casting vote. W bile there are other sections of the l&w that are wordy employed and seem ingly in conflict with these sections, yet I thiuk they are only seemingly so, and that a proper construction of the entire act must give to the section named an unre stricted applicatioji and operative in the case presented.
