CHRONIC ENLAKGEMj M J OF THE TONSILS My daughter, when six months old. was taken with a swelling in the tonsil?, which grew larger and larger, til' when six years old she had great difficulty in swallowing her food. Every night watch was kept, fearing she would suffocate. The best doctors attended her but eonld give no relief I took her to the most eminent doctors in the East; they said there was no help for her but to outgrow it. With a sad heart I returned home with her, when she became so much worte that the doctors had to be called In again; they decided that the tonsils roust be cut oft. as the only means of giving relief. My wife would not consent to ttiis, and she determined to try your Liniment, which gave re lief the very first application, and by a continued use she entirely recovered. She is now ten years old and fleshy and healthy as could be desired. Your Liniment is also the best in nse for sprains, bruises, cuts, burns, headache, etc.. and it will re move the most sevire palu in a few minutes. It also cured caked udder In my cow in a few days.

A telegram was read to-day by President Hayes lrom the San Francisco Six Companies, repre senting that a gang of 150 Chinamen who had just reached t he city trom Sacramento, robbing and crually beating them and seriously injuring more than fifty or the number. No interposition by the police or their protection and no arrests were made. The companies also call the at tention ot the pref ident to the intimation of the governor of Californiaju his address to the legislature, that a mob may become too strong fur control. They represent the helplessness of their people, without diplomatic protection, and remind the president ot the obligations of the United States government for their security under the provisions of the treaty. The presi dent said he would give the matter im mediate attention: Information having reached the treasury department that shipments of trade dollars aro txuog made from fefn rrancisco to east of the Rocky mountains for domestic circu lation, instructions were to day sent to the Pacific coast ruiot to receive deposits of silver for returns in trade dollars only in cases where that coin shall be actually re quired and intended for export to other couotrie?. If this restriction should not prevent the sending of the trade dollars east tor domestic use, it is probable that he receipt ot bullion lor coinage into trade dollars will be interdicted for a time. treasurer at this session Peiog in the ag gregate $4,889.73 All of which is respectfully submitted.
