London, June 28. The Times says the
neutral states are painfully interested by
the report that the Russians have been
violating the laws of war, by the infliction
of wanton injury. If they deliberately di- i
rected their guns against the consulates
and defenceless parts of Rustchuck their
guilt is surpassed only by their tolly, and
that folly would be all the more glaring
because, if as reported, they continued to
.fire on the English consulate after the con
sul hoisted the American flag. It is
strange they would haye gone out of their
way to assail a power peculiarly friendly
to themselves, it is difficult to believe
the Russians would have deliberately in-
niciea sucn outrages, and it is well to re
mem tier that similar charges invariably
accompany every bombardment.

from 1 antra, assisted by the inlands be

going on. The Turks are doiug their ut

Mr. H. G. Farreira Arabian Liniment has cured
some bad cases here, which every other remedy had
failed In; one was a wnite 6weiung and coniraciea

withered awav. and was so contracted inai ne naa

when the hov's father was induced to try H. G. i ar-

words he said were, '-Mr. Barker, I want all that
Liniment you have in the store; the one bottle I got

medicines have undoubtedly performed more cures
of Consumption than any other remedy known to
the American public. They are compounded of
vegetable ingredients, and contain nothing which
can be injurious to the human constitution. Otbsr
remedies advertised aj tnrt for Consumption,
probably contain opium, w hich U a somewhat dan

tendency is to confine the morbid mattering;

to contain a particle or opium; it is composed of
powerful but harmless herbs, which act on the

all morbid secretions, and expel all the diseased
