FAKRELL'S GENUINE ARABIAN LINI MENT Is a most extraordinary medicine, the truth of which is placed beyond doubt by the rast sales of the article and the many cures being daily per formed by It, which previously had resisted all other medicines and the skill of the "best physicians in the world. It is composed of balsams, extracts and p:ums peculiar to t rabia possessing, in a can centratd lonn, all their stimulating, anodyne, pen etrating, uuctous and revulsive properties, nnd the same wulrb, ages ago, were nsed by the "Sons of the Desert," with such miraculous success, in cur ing ma diseases or Dow man ana beast. Bead the following remarkabJe cure, which should t itself place H. G. FARKELL'S ARABIAN LINIMENT far beyond ny similar remedy. Mr. n. G. Farell Dear Sir; Actuated by a sense ot gratefulness, I nbmit the following as an in stance ot the utility of jour great medicine. My child, three years old, was suddenly attacked with a terri ble disease, which in less than six honrs prostrated It to total helplessness. The limbs be came so rigid that not a joint could be bent ; the flesh turned black and cold and entirely deprived oi leeuiiL' tne eyes nxea, pnrtiaiiv closed ana ai together blind, follow ing this was deaftesa to all sounds; the spine became contracted and so curved that when lying on its back the head and heels only touched. Indeed, the child presented every ap pearance Of beinc dead. Immediately on the at teck, the family physician was called in. and for three weeks he labored to restore it to feeling, but all in vain, although it was blistered a dozen times and various rubelacient Liniments app'.ied. Aeon sultation of pfiysicians v, as then held, but to no purpose, the case was then brought before the Medical Society, bnt nothing could be suggested which had not already been done, and the doctor then told me he could do nothin more. We then commenced applying your Liniment freely over the etitire length ot the spine, and you may imagine a parent's joy, w hen, after a few applications, re turning animation was apparent, ana it rapidly re covered with the exception of the sight, which did not become perfect for near a month. The child is now healthy and robust as can 1c. i- ive other cases of the same kind occured previously in my neighboorhood, all of which died, when there is no doubt if your Liniment had been used they woula have recovered. IInx-tiY G. Clki.and, l'eoria LOuK OUT FOR COUNTERFEITS 1 The public are cantloned asramst another conn tcrfelt, which ban lately marie its appcarancccalled W. 15. b arren's Arabian Liniment, t he most oautrer ous of all the counterfeits, because his having the name of J-'arvell, many will buy it m good faith without the knowledge that a counterfeit exists and they will perhaps only discover their error when the spurious mixture has wrought its evil ef fects. The genuine article is manufactured only by n. IPOREIGlsr. " WAR JTEWS. London, Dec 31. A London corres pondent of tho Manchester Guardian tele graphs the Journal regarding the govern ment policy that there i9 no idea of the acquisition of Egypt, which would be an abandonment of the policy of opposing the partition of Turkey. It is believed that should Russia reject the mediation, Lord Beaconsfield is prepared to appeal to the country on the question of declaring war tor the defense of British interests. Bucharest, Dec. 31. The bridges crossing the Danube at Simnitza were taken up to prevent their destruction. It is hoped the bridge at Pctrosham, just reported as haying been carried away, can be repaired. Nine hundred horses perished in the vicinity of bistova durinir the recent storm. The total loss of draught animals must be numbered by thousands. Details are slowly comics in concernine the suffering of Turkish prisoners from Plevna on their way to Romania. The prisoners were unaccompanied by any vehicle for the purpose of picking up those who fell by the way side; those were left by the guaids to freeze, as they had no means of carrying them, and a halt ould only have increased the number of Victims. I hwtibs-euce of wagons was nut du to deliberate cruelty but to that thoughtlessness which so frenuentlv subjects Russian soldiers to unnecessary suffering. Romanian officers who came from Nikopolis and Plevna after the passage of these prisoners say they drove against a number ot dead bodies in the snow. No provision was made in the Bulgarian villages for the proper susten ance of the captives, hut when the Danube was passed supplies were provided; from that time their lot was never hard to bear NEW YOSK. Tweed Offers to Confess Judgment, &c. New York, Dec. 31. William M. Tweed ha9 offered to confess judgment in all the city suits now pending agniost him, these include to suits in the $6,000, 000 claim, same as that in the people's suit in which judgment has been recov ered, and the suit of $53,000 against Mar riner and Tweed, and one for $500,000 against G. Miller and Tweed. The cor poration counsel has accepted the offer in the last two suits. WASHINGTON. Washington. Dec. 31. Great excite ment has prevailed here since Saturday because of a terrible outratre perpetrated upon a young lady in the eastern part of the city last Saturday. A movement is on foot for organizing a vigilance committee to patrol the streets; two negroes were ar rested yesterday on suspicion, and but for strong protests of the police the crowd would have taken the matter into its own hands and summary punishment would have been visited upon at least one of them then and there; a Urnely attended indignation meeting was held last evening. Failure of Another Banker. New YoRK,Dec. 31. An evening paper says, following the suspension of John nonner & Uo. came that or J. Jackson, a small member of the exchange, who was also short ot Lake Shore and Western Uuion. Some of the large stack houses in street are suffering by their failures, their loaDS having been violated, and it is re ported their securities sold out, without .authority. WASHISTQTOK. ai.rriag-e aul"Bellia'.,, MONROEYILLE, Ind., Dec. 31, Phillip Martz eave a wedding reception Friday night, and a number of uninvited guests gave the couple a "belling, whereupon the friends ot" Martz fired into the crowd wounding nine persons, the most seriously hurt being Charles S. Carr, C. N. Cover- dale and John Heller. Two of the tiring) party, Joun Moses and N. B. Krouse were arrested. Saturday Night's Dispatches. FOREIGN NEWS. WAR NEWS. London, Dec. 28. The Daily News says: 1 he Uttoman government declares its desire that negotiations for peace may be brought about on the present basis of facts, and as its professions must be ac cepted as sincere tho public will wish it success in its new policy. It cannot be necessary to point out that even upon the most limited interpretation ot the office it has assumed, the queen s government has assumed a task of great delicacy. The present war primarily concerns Russia and Turkey, but the eastern question is one which must be considered by Europe. By its present action our government has taken upon itsrlf the character of inter -cessor for one unfortunate bell'gerent while acting also officiously for Europe, but it has to harmonize this new character with the declarations which it has repeated ly made and with the whole course of its conduct, of which the least that cau be said is. that it has now prepared the world for the part it has now undertaken to play. Oq her majesty's ministers may very much depend whether the eastern question shall be now settled, at least for many years to come, or this war be followed by a mere truce, the prelude to a war even greater ana more disastrous than tnatot winch we are now spectators. V e are bound to hope that they will prove equal to their responsibilities. ENGLAND. Loxdo.v, Dec. 29. Two meetings of workingmen were held in Trafalgar square to day, one pro and the other anti 1 urkish. Seven thousand persons were present, The meetings resulted in a free fight, last iog an hour. The police interfered and made two arrests. Nobody of importance was present. Grand New1 Yeats Ssccytion at tlie Execu tive Mansion. Tlie President and Mrs. Hayes' Silver Weddingr. Invited Guests.

The colored school teachers of this 6tate have been in con vention here the past two days and have done a good deal of work affecting tho educational welfare of the colored children of the state. At the meeting to day resolution was adopted heartily endorsing ind earnestly commending to the people ot the country the measure brought forward by Senators Morrill and Hoar.now pendiog before congress, providing for a nationar public school fund, to be apportioned to the territories upon the basis of their illiteracy, and calling on tne rr t ;d and encourape its passage. They aleo adopted a petition to the state legislature asking an improvement of the existing laws affecting the educational interests of the colored people of Missouri. They say that the preseut law, which provides th in all respects except tae mere fact separation the colored schools shall have the same advantages as others of the same grade in their respective districts, is frequently and grossly violated; that the colored schools in many instances are held in the basements or buildimrs ill adapted in furniture, while schools for other races are amply furnished, and that in many cases the enumeration of colored persons of schoolable age is neglected and the apportionment provided by the state for such purposes never reaches these dis tricts, and these colored children are deprived of the educational privileges designed for them by the state. As a remedy for this they suggest the appoint ment of a coiored assistant state superin tendent, whose duty it shall be to specially look after th interests of colored public schools. The petition also asks that in all school districts with less than fifteen color ed population, the number now necessary for a school, they be allowed to attend the white schools.
