This celebrated medicine, skilfully composed as It is of the moot healing balsams and penetrating oils, can never fail to cure almost every affliction that could be alleviated by an external remedy. Its superiority over all other Liniments is proven by the miraculous cures it performs, and by the great and constantly increasing demand. Thore has been sold within the past year more than Three Million or Bottles, and there can be but few persons found who do not bestow upon it the highest praise for the rare virtues it possesses. Nothing, perhaps, since the creation of the world, has been so success ful as an external remedy for all nervous diseases, as this wonderful curative. When applied, it in stautaneously diffues itself through the whole sys tem, soothing the irritated nerves, allaying the most intense pains, and creating a most delightful sen sation. Read the following remarkable cure, which can be attested to by hundreds, who were fully ac quaiuted with the whole circumstance. CHRONIC ENLARGEMENT OP THE TONSILS My daughter, when six months old, was taken with a swelling in the tonsils, which grew larger and larger, til1 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 bnt could give no relief. I took her to the most eminent doctors in the East; they said there was no help for he - but to outgrow it.

BuCHAREST,Dec. 17. The report of the suicide of Osman Pasha is false. There is no foundation for the rumor of his death from any cause. London, Dec. 17. A telegram from St. Petersburg of a semi official . character says the statement that Germany and Austria have refused Turkey's request tor mediation, has produced a favorable impression here. The universal sentiment is that after the great sacrifices of Russia, peace on the conditions foreshadowed in the Porte's circular would be illusionary and that the question raised by this sanguinary war must be definitely and ex haustively solved.

There being no witnesses but Eddie Garland, her thirteen year old son by a former husband. His wife is believed aacording to the testimony to have married his property rather than the man with whom she iived in continuous war fare. On the morning of his death she says he had chased her about the house, shooting at her, and fiaally with a broad axe drove her to de fend herself, when she killed him by throwing an iron mortsr and a nail puller.

Germany hinted that treating directly with Russia would be the shortest way of coming to an understand ing. It seems that when the note was first mentioned the Austrian govern ment replied that it could not hold out any hope of successful mediation on such a basis. It is known to manjr that the Czar was privately warned last August that it Rus -sia started on a second campaign it would be hard to restrain England from hostile action. Influential Russians consider the present moment highly favorable tor di rect negotiations between Russia and Turkey. London, Dec. 18. Times Constanti nople dispatch says .hngland is id great disfavor bere on account of Servia's treachery,which English influence in favor of bervia rendered possible; there is a strong impression bere that England will oppose the opening of the Dardanelles', which Turkey, and probahiy all the other powers are prepared to concede. If the Turks refuse the concession it will be because of the conviction that England will help them in tkeir extremity London, Dec. 18.

Constantinople, Lec. is. An erron eous interpretation having been given to the circular of the Porte, inviting media tion, it is officially explained that Turkey does not approach the powers as a van quished state, since she still has two lines of defenses wLich the government believes she would be able to hold. The Porte by its circular desires to intimate that Us proposal is made by the Consfantinorl conference, as that the war began owing to Turkey s refusal to adhere to those pro posals,the Porte thinks it might be teruiin ated now on that basis.

In the case of Cochrane et al, vs Deever et al, from the upreme court of the district, the United States supreme court rendered a decision denying the motion to set aside the decree and dismiss the bill. This is known as the patent process flour case, and it was cnargea mat mere naa Deen couusion oe- tween the parties prior to the hearing and to such an extent an would be taken notice of as affecting the decree. The court failed to hod any evidence of collusion, but it is said that under the circumstances the third party, who had no opportunity of being heard and whose interests as opposed to the Cochrane patents are very im portant, should not be excluded from moving a turtuer hearing whenever m future the case may be presented for con sideration.
