HOLLOW AY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS.—Marvellous cures of scsatica, stiff joints, paralysis of the limbs, and other crippling di eases of the bones, sinews, and muscles, have been accom- plished by Holloway's Ointment. It is the only unguent which produces any impression on these complaints. The Pills also work wonders. The ointment and pills should be both used at the same time, for the action of the one is greatly ass sted by that of the other. Why should any human being: suffer from the abovementioned maladies, when Holloway's Ointment and Pills are to be found in every city and town in the world? These noble medicaments are composed of rare balsams, and ara as benign and safe as they are powerful and eflieaciqus. TOOTH ACHE arises from various causes, but the most common kind is that where the enamel and bony sub- stance is decayed and exposes the nerve, which is then liable to be attacked by cold, or injured through coming in contact with some foreign substance; and in sucb cases BUNTEltS NERVINE will give INSTANT RELIEF. Testimonial from E. Smith, Esq., Surgeon, Sherston, near Cirencester. I have tried HUNTER'S NERVINP in many cases of severe Tooth-ache, and in every instance permanent relief has been obtained: I therefore strongly recommend it to the public.' HUNTER'S NERVINE may be had of all chemists at Is 1|1 per packet, or post free for 16 stamps, from J. R. COOPER, Chemist, Maid- stone. INTERESTING TO LAMEs.—At this season of the vear the important process of bleaching and dressing Lace s and Linens for Spring and Summer wear commence-, we would therefore particularly call the attention of our fair readers to the GLKNFIELD STARCH, an article of primary importance in the getting up of these articles. The GLENFIRLD STARCH is specially manufactured for family use, and such is its excellence that it is now exclusively used in the Royal Laundry, and Her Majesty's Laundress pronounces it to be the finest Starch she ever used. Her Majesty's Laee Dresser says it is the best she has tried, and it was awarded two Prize Medals for its superiority. The manufacturers have much pleasure in stating that they have been appointed Starch Purveyors to H.R.H. the Princess of Wales. The GLENFIKLD Starch is Sold in packets only, by all Grocers Chan- dlers, &c, &c.

The gross postal revenue did not recover the reduction for twelve years, and up to 1852 the gross annual receipts were below those of 1840 and some previous years.

SUDDEN DEATH FROM CHOLERA.—>A case of cholera of medical and general interest, as being apparently the first in this country in which the victim was, as it were, struck dead suddenly, and almost without any kind of warning, came before Mr Humphreys, the Middlesex coroner, at the London Hospital on Friday. On Thuisday morning, at half past one o clock, a woman, named Hannah Parsons, while walking along New Road, White Chapel, saw a man. apparently a mechanic, about fifty-five years of age, walking on the pavement. He suddenly gave a loud exclamation of Oh aud made a run across the road and fell. A policeman came up. and, finding him insensible, ran for a docter some passers-by took up the prostrate man and carried him to the Hospital, which was not far off. On admission it was found that he was quite dead. Dr Jackson, resident medi- cal officer, said that the death was so sudden that he at first supposed the case to be one of apoplexy, but a post mortem examination undeceived him. The brain and the organs generally were quite healthy. In the stomach were the remains of a meal. The intestines were found to contain the peculiar whitey substance indicative of cholera, and the livid appear- ance of the body also denoted cholera. There had been no time for either vomiting or diarrhoea. The deceased had been killed by Asiatic cholera before either vomiting or diarrhocea had set in—&ay within an hour. Except in the East, cases of such extra- ordinary suddenness were hardly known. It was very unfortunate that nothing was known of the habits or historv of the victim in the present in- stance. The police stated that all efforts- to fird out who the unfortunate deceased was has proved un- availing. A verdict of 'Death in the street from Asiatic cholera' was returned. At an inquest held a few days since in Poplar a nearly similar instance of the rapidity of the fatal effects of cholera was dis- closed. It appeared that a seller of tools, who was in good health on Saturday, did not make his ap- pearance on the Sunday, and on the Monday his landlord called in the police and broke open his door. He was found dead, kneeling at the side of his bed, as if be had been praying. One hand was clasped on his stomach, as if he had been suddenly seized wi'h fatal cramp while praying, and had spas- modically put his hand to the seat of the pain and died instantly. In this case, however, a cup with some cayenne pepper mixed in water was found on the table, and it was thence inferred that he had been attacked with some premonitory symptoms which he had endeayoured to cure. The medical evidence conclusively proved that death had arisen from Asia- tic cholera. ::1.:¡ EFFECT OF THE PERFUME OF FLOWRKS.—The pre sence of the perfume of laven-ier in the air increases the power of absorption of beat sixty times, and apiseed 372 times; hence the perfume arising from a bed of flowers increases the temperature of the air around them.

TEMPERATURE AT WHICH SEEDS GEKMIKATE.—The celebrated Swiss botanist, M. A. De Candolle, has pub- lished an account of numerous experiments upon the temperature at which seeds will germinate. We give a few of his results, with respect to well known plants, reducing the temperature to the Fahrenheit scale. The seed of common white mustard will germinate at or a little below the freezing point. While white clover remained dormant at 41-L deg., it germinated when the temperature was raised only one degree above that. Indian corn would not start at 42 deg., but germinated at a temperature very near 48 deg. Melon seeds re- fused to germina-e at 53 deg., but did below 62-1. While there is a limit of temperature belnw which each parti- cular seed will not germinate, there is also a limit in the other direction, and seeds fail to start when the tem- perature is too high-the point as in the other ca-e, varying with the species; the greater part of some seeds of white cluver did not germinate above 82i deg. Thus seeds only germinate between certain limits ot I temperature, and those which can only do so within narrow limits are least able to extend themselves ge 'graphically.' THE NEW SUBSTITUTE FOR GUNPOWDER —A highly interesting official report bus just been made by Colonel Shaffuer of a scries of experiments conducted by him at Washington, for demonstrating the use of nitroteum (which, it should be explained, is the new and far pre- ferable name by which the Colonel designates the com- pound which has hitherto been called nitro-glyeerine) in the explosion of mines. The results fully confirm the tact that the explosive qualities ot nitrokum are far in advance of gunpowder Two similar cast-iron p:eces, weighing each 3(0 bs, had a hole one inch diameter an/1 fitteen inches deep bored in them, and were charged one with powder and the other with nitroleutn. The powder discharged through the fuse-vent 3-16rhs inche- diameter did no injury The nitroleullI tore the iron to pieces, the force extending downwatd from thehottom of the charge, leaving a cone with itR apex at the bottom of the drill-hole. Four musket barrels were placed in wrought-iron cylinders, two Imed with gunpower and two filled one-third full with nitroleum. The inkisket- barreis charged with powder were exploded by electricity; they hurst open, tearing the iron to pieces The explo- sion of the barrels charged with nitroleum produced a very different effect; they were flattened, and not so much broken to pieces; the force was so sudden and great 'hat after the barrel nad iiregularly broken up and down the iron appeared like rolled platv-even and polished. The experiments appear to demonstra e that nitroleum can, with ordinary precautions, be handled and employed without greater danger than is cotrxmon to gunpowder, and for Wasting op-^ration*, at least, it presents undoubted advantages. — Mining Journal. THE CATTLE PLAGUE.—The weekly return of the reported cases of cattle plague in Great Britain hy the Statistical Office of the Cattle Plague Depart- ment says :—The number of attacks of cattle plague officially reported in Great Britain for the week ended July 28, was 2.08—viz., 205 in England and 3 in Wales. The number—viz., 208, shows an in- crease of 1 on the previous return Correcting the total, by adding an estimate of attacks commencing during the week, but which may be subsequently reported, the number for the week will be 231. Fresh outbreaks took place in 46 farms, or places where cattle are kept, the number of such outbreaks in the previous week being 33. The disease, after attacking 46,861 cattle on 3,700 farms and places in Scotland since 18th July, 1865, appears now to have abated the present return for the first time since the outbreak, does not show any reported attacks in that portion of the kingdom. In 68 counties and one riding of Yorkshire no cases have been reported as occurring during the week. Eight counties, the metropolis,' and two ridings of Yorkshire show an increase of 104 cases; and ten counties and one riding of Yorkshire show a decrease of 103 cases. One animal in every 20 of "he ordinary stock of cattle in Great Britain has been attacked, and to every 1,000 attacks whose results have been reported 862 animals perished. 650 sheep are reported during the week to have been attacked, making the total to the date of this return 6,246. The temperature at the Royal Observatory during the week was 593 deg., or 2.5 deg. lower than the average of the same week during 50 years. Rain fell to the amount of 0.09 inch. AN OBLIGING BROTHER —A man named Collignon and his sister, Rosalie Pouillot, were tried at the Court of Assizes of the Seine, for the murder of a young girl, aged nine years, the stepdaughter of the latter prisoner. A locksmith named Pouillot, resid- ing in the Rue de lleuilly, being left a widower with a boy and a girl, the latter named Celina, has married the woman, although several years younger than her with the object of giving a mother to his children. I he woman, who had formerly been for some yeirs in a reformatory institution for previous misconduct, was of a cruel and jealous disposition, and the pre- sence of her step-children soon became a continual subject of quarrel between the father to put the boy, aged twelve, out as apprentice, and the girl, who re- mained at home, frequently bore traces of the ill treatment of her stepmother. The woman at length carried her hatred so far as to determine to get rid of the child, and for that purpose obtained the assistance of her brother, an idle and dissolute man, a book- binder without work, and who had abandoned his own wife and family. On the 21st.of April last, Collignon went to his sister's house by agreement late in the evening; the husband Pouillet had already gone to bed, being much fatigued, and Collignon then taking the girl Celina with him under the pretence of buy- ing her a cake, threw her into the Seine from the Font Napoleon at Bercy. On the following day he acknowledged the crime to one of his acquaint- ances, who informed the police, and the man and his sister were arrested. The body of the child was found in the river some days later. The ae- cused being now brought up for trial, several of the witnesses described the unfortunate girl as of a charming disposition, and as working at homo like a young woman she was also much attached to her father, who appeared to be a weU-meaning man. The prisoner Collignon could have had no interest in committing the crime, and had no doubt only done so at the instigation of his sister. The jury returned a verdict of 'Guilty' against both the accused, admitting extenuating circumstances for the woman alone. The Court then condemned Collignon to death, and the woman to hard labJur for life. A PROTEST FROM ME.SSE-DARMSTADT.—The follow- ing declaration, dated July 28, has been published at Offenbach (Hesse-Darmstadt) with a large number of signatures appended, among which are the names of the principal inhabitants of the town *rhe fatal civil war which is tearing our country to pieces threatens to terminate hy the disruption of Germany. Peace which some miliions of hearts earnestly desire, those hearts would execrate if obained at that pricf. We adhere, therefore, to the declaration of the inhabitants of Darmstadt of the 24th of July, and we protest boldly and solemnly against the- idea of a division of Germany into two. We wish for one Federal State, one Germany one single central Power, one single Parliament.' THE TERRIBLE EXPLOSION AT CONSTANTINOPLE.— On Thursday night, the 9th ult., says the Levant lIe,-aid, the large cartridge and rocket factory below Macrikeui, on the Marmora, exploded with terriffic force, destroying the whofepileof workshops and above 70 lives of the hands employed on the works. The buildings compr s,jdnine magazines, of which foUl- contained from 800 to 1,0011 barr: s of powder each, the fifth about 1,500 barrels, and the remain- ing four about 6,000 barrels each, or, a total of about 30,000 barrels of about 50ib. each. Nearly in the centre of these separate buildings was another large compartment which formed the laboratory of the establishment, in which cartridges and rockets were manufactured. In this last it was that the accident originated. Here on Thurs- day morning about 100 hands were employed, some in making new cartridges, and the rest in ripping up and extracting the powder and bullets from old ones. The official account is, that one of the 60 or more Jews employed at this latter work, in using a hatchet to open a case of cartridges struck fire with the too!, and, igniting, it blew up the whole stock of powder—amounting in all to, it is said, nearly 50,0001b. The number of the dead are stated at 72 and the wounded at 21 The Porte i intends to provide for the families of the killed and fur the persons disabled by the occurrence. THE ATTACK ON WuRZMURG.—The Augsburg I Gazette gives the following details of the action at Wurzburg on July 27:—'The Prussians, who were perfectly acquainted with the localities, estab- lished their batteries upon the Hexenbrach, a height situated to the west, just behind the fortress, and upon the St Nicholas Mountain, to the south- east of the fortress. The Prussians did not seem to have constructed any redoubts, properly so called, for their guns. Shortly after midday the batteries of the fort, which were armed with ex- cellent ritled cannon of heavy calibre, began to reply to the Prussian artillery. The fire was main- tained for three hours with the utmost vigour. At the same time the batteries of rifled guns of the active army arriving from Rottenburg took up a. position upon the rising ground on the left bank of the Main, thus flanking the Prussian batteries on Mount St Nicholas. The rifled cannon answered admirably, both in respect of length of range and precision of fire. It is stated that the Prussians had a number of pieces dismounted. The guns of the Prussians several times set on fire buildings witl.in the fortress. On one occasion only was it found impossible to extinguish the flames, and th-.i building, of no great importance, was destroyed. About 3 o'clock in the afternoon the firing was suspended on both sides. The Bavarian gunners evinced the utmost coolness and courage. They have sustained but little loss—one killed and eight or nine wounded.' A letter published in the same journal, referring to this action, says:—' bout 3 o'clock the Captain Ducal of the Engineers repaired to the fort of Marienburg in order to stop the firing, which had already caused the Prussians to retire beyond Helstadt, on the road to Zell. Upon arriving at the quarters of the Commander-in-Chief of the Prussian army of the Main with the intelli- gence that a suspension of arms had been agreed upon between Bavaria and Prussia, extending to August 2, the officer received the reply that up to that time General Manteuffel had received no order upon the subject from his Sovereign, and that if no such order should reach him in the interval he should resume the next morning at 7 o'clock hos- 11 ties against Wurzburg, the possession of which was of importance to him. The Prussians have dismounted three of our guns, and we have dis- mounted 11 of theirs, which they had to leave behind them, and which were brought into the town in the evening.' THE TRIUMPH OF WORTH AND SKILL.—Some thirty years ago mankind was content to jog on, in the arduous, uncertain, and often most deceptive pursuit of a cure from disease, or the enjoyment of robust health, where either attainment seemed an utter impossibility. In such places, for instance, as the coasts of Africa, the East and West Indies, the swamps.f certain parts of America, and the frozen regions of Canada, medical art at the time had failed to administer the desired remedy, and the means of invigorating the human system in r, z, whatever circumstances it might be placed, or to whatever diseases it might become a victim. Then it was that PROFESSOR HOLLOWAY arose, with his simple and yet almost miraculous REMEDIES, the intrinsic excellence and uniform success of which were thoroughly appreciated at once by the people of England of every class and condition oflife, and the Foreign experience of their benefits almost as rapidly confirmed the verdict of the British public. In all times such a result has been calcuiated to excite professional envy more particularly as Pro- fessor Holloway almost from the first moment undertook to suppress most diseases to which all flesh is heir. The result in his case from prejudice was similar. Whilst he was blessed by those whom he had rescued from destruction, and who were ready to bear witness to the wisdom and effi- cacy of his remedies, he was denounced bv others as a common enemy to be stoned at pleasure. No man, however, could be better able to bear the brunt of such attacks than Professor Holloway, shielded as he has ever been by the better opinion of the vast majority of mankind, respecting the remedies with which he has so successflJllvo com- batted every form of disease in every clime through- out the universe. In vain has professional jealousy or ignorant prejudice presumed to cast a slur on his method and his means the universal voice and gratitude of mankind are more powerful than interested motives, and that voice is of one accord in favour of his time-honoured remedies. Nowhere, however, is the fame of Professor Holloway more firmly established than in the East and West In- dies. Go whither you like in our possessions abroad, and you meet in every household instances of the efficacy of HOLLOWAY'S PILLS AND OINTMENT. Intermittent or bilious remittent fever, cutaneous & glandular disorders-in short, all the diseases peculiar 10 these countries are precisely those in which Professor Holloway's remedies have been most successful when ail others have failed. No wonder, then that they have become staples of the medical market throughout the world, and as indispensable as a supply of food in every house- hold. To what can be ascribed such unbounded popularity, if not to the well-tried and infallible efficacy of these remedies, and their acknowledged superiority over all means hitherto devised by man for the benefit of suffering humanitv?— Unity Tele- graph.
