IT IS A FACT ESTABLISH ED and well known that the Arabians attained a height In the knowl edge of medicine which caused the whole world to wonder and admire. With them the science of chemistry had its birth, and it is, therefore, not at ail strange that a people so eminently successful In the healing art, and so persevering and daripg in character, should, by actual and untiring experi ment, discover remedies far surpassing in eflicacy all others, for the cure of those diseases "incident to them from their mode of life. The 'Tester i.art of heir time leitiL' spent in hazardous and hlnoriv warfare with liie diffeent tribes, they were subject to th"- most violent attacks of rheumatism, paralys is, neuralgic pains, and various intbunniatorv diss eases, as also the most horid wounds, sprains brui ses, tumors, swellinsrs. dseases of the joints, etc. All these diseases they were so surprisinalv effi cient in curiu'-, that the uninitiated looked with wouder and attributed their skill to the powers of magic. II G. FAItRELL'S ARABIAN LINIMENT is a composition of balsams and oils, from rare plants peculiar to this country, snd it was by the use of the articles composing this irreat remedy that not only their physicians, but even the wild Arabs of the desert were enabled to perform such miraculous cures. Tne Arab steed is world-re nowned for his beautiful symmetry of form, his unsurpassed ipeed and agility, and the incredible fa( isrne it is capable of enduring. Why is it? Be cause from the time of his birth his limbs are care fully watched, and upon the first appearance of disease the magic lotion is applied, ana sucn t rungs as confirmed sweeny, poll-evil, fistula, ringbone. scratches, spavin, lameness, etc., etc., are unknown. The same result will follow In all cases where 11. G. Farrell's Genuine Arabian Liniment is used in time. Therefore delay not in procuring a good supply of it, for every 'dollar spent in it will save you twenty, and a great deal of Buttering, ii not your life. FOREIGN JSTJEWS. London, Aug. 27. A continuation of the Daily News correspondent's descrip tion of Friday's battles in Shipka I'asa shows that the central peak of the-Turkish position was carried with the bayonet by the Russians, part of the troops who ac complished this beiDg led by Gen. Rad itzky in person. The correspondent says the Turks attempted to retake it but were repulsed. As well as the clearing of his flank Geo. Roditzky also pushed back the Turks from his trout. The Turks will doubtless renew the attack to morrow Sunday with fresh troops, probably both in front and on the flanks. They are re ported as pressing on through a narrow and difficult pass on the east side of Shipka, leading down into Trivona, but I know that Grand Duke Nichols has ordered a brigade to that point with more troops to follow. Also that reinforcements arestrearuiag into the Shipka position. Gen. Raditzky has broken the dangerous pressure on his flanks. All danger is not yet over, but the atmosphere looks much clearer. The correspondent estimates the Russiaus loss on r nday at 1,500 kilted and wounded. St. Petersburg, Aug. 27. The news from Constantinople, announcing the capture of several forts in Shipka pass is, according to present information, unfound- ea. I he following omcial intelligence is published, according to the last news from headquarters: "Our troopshave not yield ed an inch ofc their position in Shipka I ass. Belgrade, Aug. 27.

A "nigger lad in a democratic district of New York city, has entered into a competive examination established by an Irish congressmaa named Mullen, the prize of which is an appoint ment to VV est Point. The "nigger" carried off the prize, making an average of 98 in all the studies. This is bad enough, but to makie it still worse, the successful aspirant, being so poor that he was unable to buy an outfit, the democratic ex-congressman and blackleg John Mornsey, sends him $50 for the purpose.
