Arbitration as a Means of Settlement
London, July 9.—lu the Commons, a
motion was made that the Government
should address the foreign powers with
a view of establishing arbitration as a
permanent resort for the settlement of
differences between nations. The mo
tion was supported by figures showing
the cost of standing armies.
Gladstone opposed the motion. He
argued that it would defeat its own ob
ject, because the continental nations
held widely different views on the sub
ject. He asked the gentleman to with
draw his motion. Mr. Richards de
clined to withdraw, and the House di
vided. The division resulted in a tie of
98 yeas to 98 nays. The Speaker then,
gave the casting vote in favor of the;
motion, which was adopted.

OPINION OF THE ATTORNEY GEN
Military Officers Employed In the Bu
reau and Guiltv of Misappropriation
of Money Can be Court Martialed,
and Civilians Prosecuted In the Civil
Washington, July 9, —The Attorney
General has sent his opinion upon the
subject of frauds in the Freedman’s Bu
reau to the War Department. The ques
tions submitted were with reference to
money taken from the Treasury by offi
cers employed in the Bureau by means
of forged receipts and vouchers for
bounties due colored soldiers, and by
means of receipts and vouchers fraudu
lently procured from them. The opin
ion required was upon two points. Ist.
In cases where the guilty parties cannot
be prosecuted, what should be the course
in order to secure protection of the in
terests of the Government and of the
claimants ? 2d. When prosecution is
not barred by the statute of limitations,
what action should be had, and to what
extent is the late Commissioner of the
Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and
Abandoned Lands, and chief disbursing
The opinion is that if any military
officer detailed for duty in the Freed-,,
men’s Bureau has been guily of misap
propriation of money or any violation
of the rules and regulations governing
disbursing officers of thejarmy, he may
be tried by court martial in the same
manner as any other such army officer,
and that claim agents and other persons
not officers of the Government who have
obtained money from the Bureau by
means of forged receipts and vouchers
and other frauds can be prosecuted
criminally, if two years have not elapsed
since the commission of the crime, and
can also be sued in the civil Courts of
the United States in the same manner as
employees of the Bureau can be. There
is no statute limiting the time within
which the Government can begin a civil
suit, but suits for penalties aud double
damages, under the act of March 2d, 1863,
mnst be begun within six years. The
Attorney General says, as to the chief
disbursing officer, “it is almost impossi
ble, upon the facts which are now before
me, to state what his liabilities to the
Government may be. Os course he is
liable both civally aud criminally for
his own misconduct. How far he is lia
ble for the acts of subordinates employ
ed under him is a question which it is
impossible for me to answer without a
copy of his bond and ■without more in
formation in respect to his appointment
and employment than I have been able
to obtain from the perusal of the papers
sent to me. If any other officers gave
bonds to the Government, their secre
taries are liable for their misconduct, or
loss occasioned by them, according to
the tenor thereof.”

Instances of Memory.
There once lived at Stirling, England,
a blind old beggar, known to all the
country round, by the name of Blind
Alick, who possessed a memory of al
most incredible strength. It was ob
served with astonishment that, when he
was a man, and obliged by the death of
his parents, to gain a livelihood by beg
ging tnrough the streets of his native
town of Stirling, ho knew the whole of
the Bible, both Old and New Testa
ments, by heart; from which he could
repeat any passage, and tell you the
chapter and verse. A gentleman, once,
to puzzle him, lead with a slight verbal
alteration, a verse in the Bible. Alick
hesitated a moment, and then told where
it was to be lonna/bul said it had not
been correctly delivered; he then gave
it as it stood in the book, correcting the
error that had been purposely intro
duced. The gentleman then asked him
for the 90th verse of the 7th chapter of
Numbers. Alick was again puzzled for
a moment, but then said hastily* “You
are fooling me, sir; there is no such
verse—that chapter has only eighty-nine
verses.” Several other experiments of the
sort were tried upon him with like suc
cess. He was ofteu questioned the day
after any particular sermon or speech;
and his examiners invariably found that
had their patience allowed, Blind Alick
would have given them the sermon or
speech over again.
Numerous individuals have teen cele
brated for their amazing recollective
powers of mind. Scaliger, it is said,
could repeat a hundred verses or more,
after having read them a single time;
and Seneca says he could repeat two
thonsand words on hearing them once,
although they had no dependence or
connection with each other. Perthicus
prepared his comment upon Claudian
without referring to the text; and the
learned Florentine Magliabechi,is record
ed to have had such powers of retention
as to be capable of recollecting not only
the sense of what he read, but like
wise at times the very words and the
spelling. To prove the power of his
prodigious memory, a gentleman lent
him a manuscript; and he returned to
him some time afterwards, pretending it
to be lost, requesting Magliabechi to
recollect as much of it as possible, on
which, it said, that he wrote the whole
of it without missing a word. For the
improvement of the memory, a habit of
strict attention is of essential import
ance in whatever object of pursuit we
may be engaged, as well as a syste
matic method of procedure in study or
business. Moderate and repeated exer-
tion is also peculiarly adapted to in
vigorate and strengthen the memory;
and, indeed, it is almost incredible tv

Genrul Black, an old fashioned
who was teetotashiously blind. He was
going to Baltimore iu tlie hope thut.Di
Chisolm could remove the skales froi i
his eyes. The Genrul was in fine spirit ,
for he had hopes of once more lookiu

and womans too. To a man who has

sed I, “and she is as purty as apigeoA

heaved a long sigh and said nothing,
but nobody ever will know how bad he
wanted to see that l’ennysee gal.
By and by wo came to the dinner
house at Rogersville; and this reminds
us that right here is the place where
Judge Underwood always calls for eggs
fried ou both sides aud loose in the mid
dle. He says its the only place in the
world where they cook ’em that way. A
good eatin’ house is a good thing on a
railroad, and saves a power of cussin’.
If a man wants to hear genuine cussin’
let him open his ears at Grand Junction
on the Memphis and Charleston Rail
road. The same man never throws but
one dollar away on that tavern. I heard
of a man tellin’ the landlord, as he give
him liis dollar, that he looked upon liis
eatin’ house as a regular swindle.. The
landlord to ik the money and the slander
as serenely as if it was a compliment,
but iu a few days he got an important
dispatch from Mobile, for which ho paid
two dollars. He opened it and read :
“MyDearSir— l told yon theother day
/n my haste that your eatin’ house was a
swindle. I now repeat the akkusation
at my leisure. You will please pay the
Western Union two dollars, aud charge
it to Fly Boose. ”
I hear that the railroad eampanies is
goin to employ a man by the year as a
secret inspector of eatin houses and
publish their standin once a month on
their tiket. They are going to rank em
from a hundred down to nothin, so that
travellers can lay in eunf vittel* \o skip
over the swindels. It will be better for
"the health and better for the temper
and save a power of cusing. Big John
has ajiplide for the places.
When we reached Alexandrv we tookG
a steamboat for Washinton. The Gen
rul dident want anything but coffee and
as he couldent get up the steep little
stairs I politl ly informed the landlord
that there was a blind man below who
wanted a cap of coffee. He snapd me
off as short as pie crust and remarkd
that he waseut runin the coffee business
just then. I kep my temper and tried
him again with the same result. I then
tried a darkey but be referred me to the
Boss. The Genrul got no coffee and
sed he could do without it but he would
like to know that lindlords name. A
man standin by sed it was Fox—but be
changed it directly and sed it was Wolf,
and the Genrul remarkd that more like
ly it was dog. I think that fellar was
mad because he couldent sell more of
PassiDg through the nations capital I
gazed upon the marble pile whose doam
pierced the clouds and sed to the Gen
ul, “There is a grand old buildin.”
He replied mournfully, “I can’t see it,
but I recomember it. It is a magnificent
structure, but it is a whited sepulker,
and has been the birthplace of more
villainy than all the gamblin hells of
Christendom. It is the birthplace of
inikwity in high places. If there had
never been a hell one would germinate
spontaneously from the corruption that
breeds within its walls, like maggots
breeding in the karkases of the dead.
Hypocrisy, avarice, lust and lies dwell
there, and their foul influence spreds
from this central fokus to the very con
fines of the Government. If the honest
workiu people who really support the
nation at the anvil and the loom and
the plow handle knowd one-half of the
devilmeut that is laid and hatched in
that buildin, and could realize that all
the stealin and plunder cum out of their
sweat and their toil, they would raze it
to the ground, aud scatter its polluters
to the ends of the earth."
The Genul's sightless eye balls rolled
around wildly, but he soon subsided
into a state of melancholy reflektion.
Arrivin’ at Baltimore, an honest
Irishman drove us to Dr. Chisolm’s
eye-shop. The Genrul made me take an
Irishman, for he said they wouldn’t de
ceive strangers. We found the Doctor
up to his eye-brows in eyes. There was
" two rooms full of patients, aud not a
sound eye among ’em. Thinks Ito my
self, if this is his daily bisness, there’s
more sick eyed people in the world than
- I ever dreamed of. After a little while
■fthe Genrul was led to a room in the
Ji hospital where he washed the travel off
and dressed himself in a new suit of
store clothes, and got the hang of the
room by feeliu’ all around for the buro
and the bed and the fire-place and the
winders. We then went down to inter
view the Doctor, who had purty well
gone through the eye bisness for ftiat
day. After makin’ his pleasant akquaiu
tance he| took the Genrul into a room
as dark as Afriky and throwd a lokomo
tive head light right* into his eye-balls.
In a minute or so he remarked “all
right, Genrul, I’ll send you home with
out a guide in two weeks.” He then
showed me an eye as big as a kokynut,
which I suppoos cum all the way down
r from ol*l Gog or Maygog, and he took
£ it all to pieces and explained the concern
i to my entire satisfaction. He showd me
s the irish and the pupil aud the cat-aline
, lens, and the conjunktion, and the sky
, roket, and the victorious humor, and the
1 «erie canal, and the corny copia and the
cataract. I always thought that the
cataract was somethin’ growin’. on the
outside, and that he cut it off with a
thin bladed knife, but lie sed the eye
ball was a room, and the pupil was a
winder, and the seein’ was done from in
side the room, and the cataract was a
curtain that got in betwixt the organ of
sight and the winder, and he had to go
into tlie room with a knife and cut away
the curtain and then the sight was re
stored. Since these explanations I hav had
a very high respekt for my eyes and for
sienoe too. I learned the whole bifsness
as well in 20 miuets as if I had studid
eyes for a year, and Ive seriously thought
it my duty to open an eye-shop at homo
just for the sake of sufferin’ humanity.
The Doktor remarked that some folks
learned a heap quicker than others, and
I thought at the time he was alludin' to
me. Eyes, I think, is my specialty—my
fort. Ive always had a mekanikal eye,
•ml my mother says I cut my eye-teeth
easier than any of the boys.
Next rnoruin lioset tlio Genrul up in a
big barbers chair, aud techin a spring it
laid down with him just like it had
sense, aud the Doktor propped his lids
open with a parcel of small wire crow
bars, and he told tlie Genral to look
down all the time. Then he cut into
his eye-ball with about as much indiffer
ence ns lie would have cut into the eye of
a potater, and as the General flinched he
told him to look down. The General
says “lam looking down.” “No you are
not,” says the Doktor. “I tell you I am”
says the Genral. The Doktor cut away
a lick or two and says: “Genral if you
don’t look down yonr eye will be ruined.”
“I’m looking down all I can,” says the
General. “I’ve lost control of my
optic nerve. I believe you would ex
pect a man to look down if you was

A FEW WORDS FOR THE BENEFIT
OF THE MILLION!
A DISORDERED LIVER is the source of a
largo majority of the ills with which the
human family is afflictod. There is no organ
of tlie body, tho normal functions of which
are so essential to health. Upon its healthful
action depends the proper assimilation of tho
food and drink which supports and nourishes
the body. It is therefore evident that a de
rangement of its functions mußt entail disas
trous results upon the entire system.
A BILIOUS STOMA 111.
Tlie bilo is tho natural eatbartio of tho
bowels into which it parses just below tho
stomach, beiug conducted there bv its produc
ing organ—the liver-by a pipe called a duel.
No bile properly belongs to tbo stomach ; but
if it ih excessive in quantity, or viscid or thick
in quality, or il tlie bowels are obstructed or
costive, then it ilows back into tho stomach,
causing nausea, retelling and vomiting of
yellowish, green, or even black bilious matter,
This is commonly called ‘•bilious stomach,"
‘‘bile ou tho stomach,” or a ‘‘bilious attack."
Sometimes this condition is comparatively
mild, but of long duration; or it comes anil
goes according to varying circumstances of
diet or lioaltb. In such (rases there may bo
only a hoadaclio and sickness at tlie stomach,
with an expectoration of bitter phlegm, but
usually, also, the whites of tlio eyos become
yellowish, anil tbo complexion losos its frcsli,
healthy color. Many poisons livo for woeks or
months in this condition, and at length Dys
pepsia, with ali its train of distressing con
comitants, is fully developed. Hiok Headache,
Flatulence, variable appetite, dullness and
drowsiness, dizziness, hitter taste hi tbo mouth,
dryness of tiio throat and internal heat, pal
pitation of tho heart; sour stomach, with a
raising of tho food; a bloated or full feoling
about tho stomach, which is often attended
with pain and tondomcsH; colie pains ; consti
pation of the bowels, alternating witli attacks
of Diarrlioee ; Piles, nervousnesss, coldness of
tlio extremities; cbillness, alternating with hot
flashes, low spirits and gloomy forebodings. ‘
This frightful cataioguo of diseases invariably
follow a deranged state of tho liver, and it be
hooves every one who would enjoy life to
adopt prompt measures for its restoration to
For this purpose Mercury, in tlie form of
Calomel or Bluo Pill, is the medicine usually
resorted to. This powerful drug, though for
tho time helping the liver, does no lasting
good, lias to he resorted to more and more
frequently, and proves in tho end moro dan
gerous to the system than tho disorders it is
intended to subdue
To obviate this difficulty, physicians have for
a long time sought for a mcdiciuo that would
act spocihoally on tho liver, restoring its nor
mal functions, and at tho same time be exempt
from tlie dangerous effects of morcury. Their
research liaH at la»t been rewarded by tlie dis
covery of vegetable substances which, when
properly combinod, oxojt a most powerful heal
ing influence upon that organ. It is justly
styled the ..lost important triumph that Phar
macy has over achieved. These substances aro

Which causes them to act, with wonderful cer

diseased liver and those distressing maladies
which attend it. While they are active and
searching, tlioy aro mild and gentle in thoir
action, and can be taken by tlie most delicate
person. They produce neither nausea, griping
or debility, nor require change of diet or occu
By the timely use of tliesn Pills much pain
and suffering may be avertod, and life, which
