This Celebrated medicine. sVilfnllv mmnn,.i1 as It is of the most healing balsams and penetrating oils, can never fail to cure1 almost every affliction that could be alleviated by an external remedv. Its superiority over all other Liniments is proven by the miraculous cures it performs, and by the great and constantly increasing demand. Thorehas been sold within tbe past year more than Thke Million or Bottlks, and there can be but few persona found wno co not oestow npon it tne highest praise for the rare virtnes it possesses. 'Nothing, perhaps, since the creation of the world, has been so succes ful as an external remedy for all nervous diseases, as this wonderful curnive. When applied, it in stantaneously dih'ucs itself throuuh the whole sys tem, aooth Ing the irritated nervts, allaying the most intense pains, and creating a most delisjhtful sen sation, liead the following remarkable cure. which can be attested to by hundreds, who were fully ac quainted with the whole circumstance. CriRONIC ENLARGEMENT OF THE TONSILS My daughter, when six months old, was taken with a swelling in the tonsil?, which grew larger and larger, til1 when six years old she had great difficulty in swallowing her food. Kvery night watch was kept, fearing she would sullocate. The best doctors attended her but conld irive 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 thai the tonsils must be cut off, as the only means of giving rei.ei. aiy wue would not consent to tnis, and she determined to try your Limnient, 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 use for sprains, bruises, cuts, burns, headache, etc. and it will re move the mowt sevi re pain in a few minutes. It also cured caked udder lu mv cow In a few days.

A Berlin dispatch sa3's, the impression prevalent in diplo matic and bureancratic circles is, that the German government is desirious of the termination of the war; that it will adhere fully and freely to whatsoever conditions Russia may resolve to enact; and that it has resolved neither itself to advance any obstacle, nor so far as it can, help or per mit any of the other powers to hinder the extinction of Turkey as a European power. Belgrade,' Dec. 19. The Servians have occupied a fort in Ramor near Visch. The Pall Mall Gazette says the sum moning of parliament probably means no more than a warning to the othei powers that England does not propose to allow theea8tern question to be settled by three emperors, and that she must have some voice in the disposal of her own future. This afternoon the Pall Mai! Gazette, in a leading article, says the cabinet has come to the wise resolution if in these days,altcr reading the history of the last ten years, after marking the rela tions of the continental powers, after learning tha lesson which the condi tion of Europe at this movement plainly teaches, if after this any man thinks any empire can exist without ever asssertiug a disposition to fight for its possessions and existence, that man must bo a fool; if without thinking so he maintains his point, then he must be some kind ot a tr?itor, the sort of traitor, perhaps, who declares himself a humanitarian or churchmrn.

It is stated that the Cabinet has decided to ask Parliament to vote a grant of money tor such increase ot the British army as tbe present state ot Europe demands. The Post's leading editorial forshadows a grantjl'or military preparations, and after reviewing the rumors which have been current of iate concerning sepai ate arrange ments between Russia and Turkey, says: "To make England's words heard, to make meditation respected or intervention effective, it is necessary to appeal to the representatives of the nation for lequisite support. lhe Standard, in its leader, explains that the victory of the Russians is not the cause of the summocinn ot Parliament. but the license which is given to Russia by Germany and Austria to us3 the victory in her own way. this is what constitutes the clanger to the British interests.

Grant is now visitiog Mount Vesuvius. bedo, of recent Mexican border fame, arrived here yesterday from Brownsville, lie eaya his visit is simply in pursuit of private business. In conversation he utterly disclaimed the charge that his recent visit to the Rio Grande was for the purpose of organizing an expedition against Diaz. lie denies that Lcrdo and his adherents secretly encourage a con flict between the United States and the Diaz government. He does not appre hend any danger of war between the two governments, and says it would be de plored by none more than he. He says that as between the belligerents, Lerdo would certainly be a Mexican. Touching the late troubles in El Paso county, Esco bedo said the trouble was not between Americans and Mexicans, but between Americans only. The occurrence of the outbreak, he said, did not change his opinion that peace would be maintained between the two governments. Canal Strikers. Montreal, Dec. 18. About 300 canal strikers marched, this afternoon, to Cote St, Paul, attacked the office of Davics & Son, contractors, with Btones and revolvers. The shots were returned from the office, killing one and wounding three strikers. When the mob reached the section under contract to Davies, where the strike origi nated, they found twenty-five men at work and ordered them to caase, but acting under the foreman's instructions they re fused. Stone throwing commenced, when Foreman Cosgrove, from the door of Davis' office, presented a revolver and or dered the crowd to disperse. One Paquette raised a pick handle in a threatening man ner, when Cosgrove fired three shots in quick succession.fatally wounding Paquette. lhe inturiated mob commenced wrecking the building, but were mot by a fusilade of some hfty shots, fired from the inside, and the wreckers withdrew. The strikers seem determined to hold out for $1 a day and fortnightly payments. Inflammatory speeches are made at the meetings. If an understanding is not arrived at soon there will be serious trouble. No police are available to overawe the disaffected. The strike exteuds all along the canal from Montreal to Lachine.
