The first irregularity of any functior. should be checked and set right by an appropriate dose of these fine purifying Pills, which strengthen the system by thoroughly cleansing the IIlood from all impurities. They balance disordered action, remove the cause of disturbance, and restore its normal and natural power to every organ, without inconvenience, pain, or any other drawback. jDetermination of Blood to the Head. This is generally occasioned by some irregularity or the stomach and bowels, which if not quickly attended to, frequently terminates fatally. A few doses of these famous Pills never fail to give tone to the stomach, regu- larity to the secretions, and purity to the fl iids. Vertiao, dimness of sight, and other indications of approaching apoplexy, are entirely dissipated by a course of this admirable medicine. Scrofula and all Skin Diseases. For all skin diseases, however inveterate, there medi- cines are a sovereign remedy. While the Pills act upon the blood, which they purify, the Ointment passes through the pores of the skin, and cleanses every struc- ture, as water saturates the soil, or as salt penetrates me at. The whole physical machinery is thus rendered healthy, regular, and vigorous. Coughs, Colds, and Asthmas. No medicine will enre colds of long duration, or such as are ssttled upon the chest so quickly as these famous Pills. Even in cases where the first stage of asthma has appeared, these Pil Is may be relied11 on as a certain and never-failing remedy, particularly if the ointment he simultaneously well rubbed into the chest and throat night and morning. Indigastzon.-Bilious Headache. I. These complaints are sometimes considered trifling, but it should be borne in mind that, by inattention and neg- lect, they often end most seriously. Give early thought I to a deranged stomach, take flolloway's Pills, rub his celebrated Ointment over the pit of the stomach, and you will shortly perceive a change for the better in your digestion, spirits, appetite, strength, and energy. The mprovement, though it may be gradual, will be thorough and lasting.

HOUSE OF COMMONS.—FRIDAY. THE REFORM BILL. The House of Commons, at the morning sitting again went into committee on the Reform Bill, and resumed the consideration of Mr Lowe's proposal to introduce a clause for cumulative voting, by providing that in any contested elec- tion for a county or borough represented by more than two members, and having more than one seat vacant, every voter should be entitled to a number of votes equal to the number of vacant seats, and might give all such votes to one candidate, or distribute them among the can- didates as he might think fit. Mr \dderley, speaking on behalf of the Govern- ment, opposed the clause, which, he said, intro- duced a principle that was totally unknown to the constitution. The principle of the constitution was that the whole people should be represented by the whole, and when a member was elected he represented the minority as well as the majority. Mr Fawcett pronounced the proposal a logical one, for with three members in a constituency the majority would be represented by two and the minority by one. But it would not be logical to apply the principle to boroughs with two members only, for in that case the minority and the majority would be placed on an equal footing. Mr Newdegate would vote for the clause which was rendered necessary by the probable and not far distant extinction of the smaller constituencies. Mr Bright denounced the clause as one of the most violent attacks upon the principles of re- presentation that had ever been witnessed in that house; At no time had he been in favour of new-Iangled proposals. On the contrary, he had always asked the house to march along the ancient lines of the constitution, and thus far both the house iind the Government had done so. But now came the member for Caine with this puerile, in- significant, and utterly worthless proposition for arresting the tide of democracy as he called it, and preventing the ruin upon which he declared the house was rushing. In his opinion the house had better do their duty in reference to the matter before them, and leave these great changes to be made by those who came after them, in case they were necessary, and the measure the house was engaged in passing turned out to be a failure. Lord Cranborne argued that the clause was requisite as a means of counteracting the over- whelming preponderance which the bill would give to a particular class by the new franchise which it created. He contended that ap they were en- grafting a new principle of a democratic character upon the constitution they ought to engraft upon t, z, it also a protective principle, even though it were new. Mr Mill spoke at considerable length in favour of the clause as a portion of the scheme of repre- sentation known as 'Mr Hare's.' Mr Henley had no faith in the proposal as a counterpoise to what some hon. gentleman re- garded with apprehension, the influence which the new constituencies would exercise in the re- presentation. The Chancellor of the Exchequer, in announcing his determination to vote against the clause, said that nothing could afford a greater contrast than the largeness of the principle it contained and the smallness of its application. Why, then, run the risk of so great a change with such small results ? If the principle were of the great ad- vantage which its supporters claimed for it, surely it ought to be applied more extensively and if it were good for constituencies returning three members, it would be equally good for those returning two. Apply the principle to boroughs with three representatives and the re- sult must be that in the great bulk of the con- stituencies which returned two members only political opinions would be completely neutralised. This being so, the government would thencefor- ward be in the hands of the constituencies who were represented by only one member in fact, the United Kingdom would be governed by the gentlemen who came from Scotland. With regard to the dangers which were anticipated from the democratic tendency of the bill, he frankly avowed that he had no fear on the sub- ject, and he entreated the committee not to allow such a hug-bear to be made the foundation of a new legislation that would have the effect of changing the whole character of the constitution. Sir G. Grey would vote for the second reading of the clause, for the purpose of afterwards amending it in accordance with the views ex- pressed by Mr Morrison. Mr Lowe having replied upon the whole debate, the committee divided, when there appeared for the clause, 173; and against it, 314. The clause was, therefore, rejected by the overwhelming majority of 141. On the motion of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Chairman then reported progress. A SWEEPSTAKES FOR A VERDICT.—A jury em- panelled at the Bucks quarter sessions, held at Aylesburv this week, signalised themselves by the novel but very equivocal mode (after being locked up for four hours and a half), of arriving at a verdict by lottery. Twelve slips of paper were placed in a bat, on one of which was written the word 'Guilty,' and on another 'Not Guilty,' the remainder being blanks. Tne Guilty being first drawn, the jury went into court and gave their verdict to that effect. The case was that of a man charged with stealing two surgical trusses.—Bucks Herald. THE NAVAL REVIEW.-— Preparatory to the great event of Wednestray, the 17th inst, the Admiral Commander-in-Chief will, when convenient, take the port division of the fleet to sea for exercise. This division will comprise the Victoria, 102 (fla" ship); Irresistible, 60; Donegal, 81; Revenue", 73 St. George, 72 Royal George, 72 Duncan! 81 Lion, 60 Princess Royal, 73 Mersey, 36; Liffey, 31; Liverpool, 35 Phoebe, 35 Sutlej, 35 and Dauntless, 21. In order to retain the proper line of formation, a number of parti-coloured buoys will be laid down at Spithead. so that each ship on her return to the anchorage will be enabled to reform the line, the same position and equi- distant space, one vessel from the other, beinu maintained. On the day of the review a number of visitors will be allowed on board each ship, the Victoria and Minotaur excepted, it being under stood that her Majesty the Queen wiIJvisit thosf two ships prior to the fleet leaving the anchorage The Royal Albert Yacht Club, at Southsea, has been thrown open fur the use of commissione; officers of her Majesty's feet during the month o July.
THE BLIND BOY AND THE LIFE-BOAT, (From the Lifeboat Journal.) Of all the calamities to which the human race is liable, unless it be that of unceasing pain, there is perhaps none which we each of us dread so much in our own persons, or sympathize with so greatly when beheld in others, as loss of sight. Although we are only too apt to slight those every-day blessings which a bountiful Providence has bestowed on us, and instead of living under a per- petual sense of gratitude, are but too liable to accept them as a matter of course; yet it may be hoped that there are few human beings with hearts so hard as to witness blindness in others without at least a passing emotion of pity for the sad deprivation, and a deeper sense of their own more favoured lot. Happily, however, the same all-wise but mysterious Power which permits the pain also provides the remedy and, accordingly, we almost invariably perceive tbe blind to be contented and cheerful. To some extent this may arise from that natural elasticity of spirit which induces men, for their own happiness' sake, to make the most of circumstances or, in the higher order of minds, it may spring from that absolute and cheerful submission to the will of God which, from the monarch on the throne to the humblest individual, is one of the foremost duties of mortal man. But apart from such antidotes, which in varying degree, are applicable to every phase of human pain and loss, the blind would appear to possess a special compen- satory influence; for being separated, as it were, from all visible intercourse with the world around them, their mental vision is directed inwards on themselves; and, being withdrawn to a great extent from the restless turmoils and strifes and ambitions of life, that calm, meditative, and tranquil spirit is engendered which is eo frequently observed in this class of bereaved persons. We have been led to these reflections, on a subject which otherwise seem foreign to the purpose of this publication, from the reception by the National Life- Boat Institution of a very interesting donation in the shape of £ 100, collected in aid of it funds, by Herbert Marston, a blind boy aged thirteen years, the son of an English clergyman. In the quiet seclusion of his parsonage home, amidst affectionate and sympathising friends, and surrounded by the best and kindliest influence, yet, as evidenced by this benevoleiit act, with early sympathies reaching to that world abroad wh ch it is not permitted him to see, may we not readily believe that the lot of our kind youag friend is a far happier one than that of numberless of those who enjoy the wondrous gift of sight ? We append a song, entitled L'he Life-Boat.' com- posed by his father, the Rev C. D. Marston, who has been good enough to place it at our disposal, at his son's request. THE LIFE-BOAT.* 4 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee.' God speed the gallant Life-boat I God keep her gallant crew They fear not storm nor breaker, The boat and her men so true. She bears her like the sea-bird, • At home in wind and wave; Their hearts are bold and stead}, Their hands are strong to aave. Then hail to the gallant Life-boat, And hail to her gallant crew; Ihey fear not storm nor breaker, j; The boat and her men so true. Bless them, ye gladdened households, Whose dear ones owe them life Blees them for joys once threatened, Yet snatched from Ocean's strife. Bless them, all England's people, "r Whose birthright is the wave Bless them, Thou Source of Blessing, 1; With mightier power to save Then hail, &c. When tempests loud are raging, Aud wild nights banish sleep. When those on shore are thinking Of those upon the deep; When prayer to God is rising For all who stem the wave, We'll pray for the angel Life-boat Whose mission is to save. • Then hail, &s. .,q C. D. M. This song car he sung to the well-known air, 'God Bless the Prince of Wales.' « DISARMAMENT IN* THE EYES OF FOREIGNERS. Seriously, this suggestion of economy and re- duced expenditure, to have bad any chance of success, should not have come from England. The difficulty with which we maintain a very small army at its full complement, and the dis- favour with which our people in their stuid, D- dependence regard all military service, are facts patent to all. That we grudge the cost of a force which makes the patrol of the globe is but too well-known nor has a minister any so sure and short a road to popularity in England as by cutting down the army estimates. Foreigners seeing this, and reading, as they do, the debates in our house, naturally say, 'England feels all the in- feriority her diminished military power inflicts upon her, and as she cannot come up to us, plea- santly suggests that we should come down to her.' In fact, it is pretty like the proposition of a commercial traveller, that for the future no man should drive anything but a one-horse tax- cart. Continental nations, however, have other ambitions than trade successes. I am not going to defend or attack them, but I am forced to admit that the spirit which for some years back has animated our people is not that of the rest of Europe, and Louis Napoleon-though possibly the utterance was not very discreet—was not wide of the mark when he declared that the greatness of a nation was in the direct ratio of the squares of its standing army. 'Not only, then, was Eng- land wanting in the high authority to speak on such a subject, but her advice, when she gave it, became naturally matter cf suspicion. Cu., off your leg.' cries the wooden-legged man, and I'll run vou for a hundred yards.' But I don't think the biped is obliged to recognise the challenge. Now, had the notion of disarmament originated with France or Russia, the prospect of its being favourably entertained would have been far greater. These are great military powers, and a reduction of their strength would be something more than a diminished means of offence. It ■: would imply a total change of policy. To send back to the fields and the factories hundreds of thousands of men-to habituate them to the inde- pendence of the peasant or the town labourer—tov attach them to the soil by the ties of family, and elevate their lives by the hope of betterme.v—. would be to effect a total revolution, and such a revolution as neither Czar nor Emperor has vet dreamed of.—BlacJaoood. ¥
