Senator Morton Charged tv«lh Home Irreg ularities in Conueetion with War Ex penditures. Washington, April 29.—Senator Morton is being informally investigated by correspondents and Congressmen in connection with the pay ment to him in 1802 of a quarter of a million of dollars from a fund appropriated in 1861 to pay the expenses of transporting and deliver ing arms and munitions of war, to the loyal citizens of states ef which the inhabitants were or might be in rebellion against the government of the United States, and to provide for the expense of organizing them into companies, batallions, regiments, or otherwise, for their own protection against violence, insurrection, invasion or rebellion. Two million dollars were appropriated under this act. Among the list of war expenditures in con nection with the above is this item: For sup plying transportation and tho delivery of arms and munitions of war in states in rebellion against the government of the United Siates, O. P. Morton, Governor of Indiana, $250,000. Iudiina was never in rebellion, and it was a query why Morton should have had $250,000 when there was no purpose under the statute for making an appropriation for which money con'd have been legally expended. The corres pondent recalls the fact that a quorum of the Indiana legislature was broken by Republicans bolting to prevent some party legislation, and no appropriation bills were passed. Morton was then Governor He did not call the leg islature together again, but made a trip to Washington. On his return the paymaster’s office was reopened and the expenses of tbe state government promptly met, no one but Morton’s intimates knowing where tbe money came from. Tbe friends of the Senator express confi dence that he is fnliy able to meet tbe charge against bis integrity in connection with the $270,000 be received from the government in the spring of 1803. Of this amount be ex teDded as Governor, in behalf of the state, 133,320.91 for military purposes, for which the state settled with him, and this amount was paid back to the government by settling off a like amount from the payment of the entire sum due to Iodiaua for advances made to tbe government at tbe beginning of the war. Tbe balance of tbe $250,000, namely, $116,097.09, he did doc use, Dut returned to tne government. The settlement was entirely closed with the government Nov. 18, 1865, and Senator Morton has now the original paper which shows the fact. It appears that a few days ago Representa tive Springer called at the Treasury to examine the war accounts of Senator Morton while he was Governor of Indiana, The Secretary de clined to permit such examination unless Mr. Morton or some friend of bis should be present and informed Mr. Morton of these facts. Mr. Morton called on Mr. Springer, and said he had no objection(to an examination of his entire was expenditure,$but desired to be represented on such an occasion by a friend. Mr. Morton immediately telegraphed to Gen. Sturm, who was chief of ordninance, and to Gen. Terrell, who was his military secretary, to come to Washington, and both of these gentlemen are now here. Mr. Morton will take early occasion in the Senate to fully explain the transaction, regarding it lawfnl, and will afford all the nec essary facilities for a complete examination of the subject. _ Forty-Fourth Congress—First Session. ■ - .

Russia’s Policy, London, April 29.—A despatch to the Rus sian Telegraphic Agency savs the Porte makes it a point of military honor not to consent to an armistice until Nicsic is revictualed by force of arms. The powers, however, still hope to prevent the extension of war. A later telegram to the same agency declares on authority that the assertion that Russia has proposed to demand the autonomy of Bosnia and Herze govina is untrue. Russia adheres to her origi nal programme, namely, the maintenance of the present status in Turkey and the ameliora tion of the Christian subjects of the Porte. She will not deviate therefrom except in accord with the five other great powers. The insur gents are willing to permit the Montenegrins to revictual Nicsic if the Porte consents to a fresh armistice and pledges himself not to reinforce its troops during the armistice. The Porte per sists in revictualing Nicsic by foice. Peace de pends upon the Porte. The Times' Berlin correspondent says the Porte has telegraphed to its representatives abroad, holding the powers responsible for ob jecting to military measures against Montene gro. The Montenegrins. Sclavonic journals publish a telegram from Cettinje declaring that the news sent there by the Russian government that Turkey does not dare to attack Montenegro is received with the utmost enthusiasm. Montenegro will not for mally declare war, but will permit her whole population to join the iesurgents. A more op en avowal is impossible. Nicsic Revictunled. Mostar, April 30.—The following is official: Mukhtar Pasha telegraphs that he has entered Nicsic in triumph after defeating the great mass of insurgents at the Presjeka and occupy ing their, iutrenchments. Nicsic has been re victualed. Servian Militia. Belgrade, April 30.—It ia stated in govern ment circles that the miliiia have been ordered to supply themselves with a week’s provisions and to hold themselves in readiness to march at 24 hours’ notice. Montenegro’* Intention. Berlin, April 30.—The Porte has sent a cir cular note to its representatives abroad, dated April 27, instructing them to draw the atten tion of the various governments to the support given bv Montenegro to the insurrection. The Porte disclaims any intention of attacking Montenegro and expressed the confident hope that the powers by their moral cooperation will contribute to the pacification of the insurgent provinces. It is stated that the several govern ments in answer have declared that they be lieve Montenegro’s intentions peaceful. Course of the Porte. A telegram from Athens to the Times says although the Porte'has been induced to aban don an immediate attack on Montenegro, be will concentrate 30,000 soldiers at Scutari and 30,000 in HAfzegovina. Public opinion in Tur key is weary of diplomatic interference. The governments object seems to be only to gain time to assemble forces and strike a terrible blow, regardless cf consequenses. The situa tion is full of danger. The government is ex hausting its resources in warlike preparations, and declares it can pay nobody, SPAIN. British Sailor Shot. London, April 30.—The Times’ Madrid des patch reports that the Clementina, a contra band vessel, was recently seized at Malaga by Spanish revenue officers. The crew were order ed below but refused to go. A sailor belonging to Gibraltar, and a British subject, was shot and wounded and left without help for three hours so that he bled to death. Great indigna tion is felt by the English residents. The mat ter is placed in the bauds of the British Min ister. MEXICO. Cnmnrgo Occupied by Biaz. New York, April 30.—A Mexican special says Gen.

There is much complaint in our retail markets over the scarcity of small change, caused by the premium on silver and fractional currency. It is fearod the present £lan of silver resumption will have to be abandoned. The new silver is scarce, owing to tbe hoarding ot it. The run on the sub-treasury here is on the increase, and each morning the line of appli cants is longer and more numerous. Several hun dred men and boys were beseiging the doors of the treasury long belore business hours this morning, awaiting their turn for the new silver coin. The anthracite coal combinatinn ot Pennsylvania has decided to slow up on mining in order to keep up the prices.

He would carry freight and passengers, and those interested might start as many competing steamship lines as they pleased.

It is said that 1000 car loads have been contracted for at twenty-one cents.

Thanks “from the Depths of the Heart.” Wellington, Lorain Co., O., Aug. 24,1874. Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.: Dear Sir—Your medicines, Golden Medical Dis covery, Dr. Sage’s Catarrh Remedy, have proved of the greatest service to me. Six months ago no one thought that I could possibly live long. I had a com plication of diseases—scrofula, manifesting itself in eruptions and great blotches on my head that made such sores that I could not have my hair combed without causing me much suffering; also causing swollen glands, tonsils enlarged, enlarged or “thick neck,” and large and numerous bolls. I also suffered from a terrible Chronic Catarrh, and in tact I was so diseased that life was a burden to me. I had tried many doctors with no benefit. 1 finally procured one-half dezen bottles of your Golden Medical Dis covery and one dozen Sage’s Catarrh Remedy and commenced their use. At first 1 was badly discour aged, but after taking four bottles of the Discovery I began to improve, and when 1 had taken the|remain ing I was well. In addition to the use of Discovery 1 applied a solution of Iodine to the Goitre or thick neck, as you advise in pamphlet wrapping, and it entirely disappeared. Your Discovery is certainly the most wonderful blood medicine ever invented. I thank God and you, from the depths of my heart, for the great good it has done me. Very gratefully, MRS. L. CHAFFEE. Most medicines which are advertised as blood puri fiers and liver medicines contain either mercury, in some form, or potassium and iodine variously com bined. All of these agents have strong tendency to break down the blood corpuscles, and debilitate and otherwise permanently injure the human system, and should therefore be discarded. Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery, on the other hand, being com posed of the fluid extracts of native plants, barks and roots, will in no case produce injury, its effects being strengtheningandcurativeonly. Sarsaparilla, which used to enjoy quite a reputation as a blood purifier, is a remedy of thirty years ago, and may well give place as it is doing, to the more positive and valua ble vegetable alteratives which later medical investi gation has brought to light. In Scrofula or King’s Evil, White Swellings, Ulcers. Erysipelas, Swelled Neck,Goitre, Scrofulous Inflammations, Indolent In flammation,Mercurial Affections,Old Sores.Eruptions of the Skin and Sore Eyes, as in all other blood dis eases, Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery has shown its great remedial powers, curing the most obstinate aud intractable cases.

Because the have not made tilts disease the study ot a life-time, as did old Dr. Kaeder, a dis tinguished German Professor, who has probably spent more time over this intricate complaint than any person on the globe. Reflect tor a moment, nse your good sense, and remember that the origin of Catarrh is in a COMMON COLD Which one Box of the great remedy, RAIDER’S German Snuff’, Would have quickly cured. Now what are tbe spmptoms of Catarrh? They commence with a sense of irritation about the nasal organs which, if not allayed with GERMAN SNUFF, alter a short time extend to the throat. As you lie down at night, and lain would sleep and rest the weary brain, HORRIBLE TO SAY, The Secretions of the Head PASS TO THE LUNGS, Causing these delicate organs to become impregnated with CATARRHAL POISON. In the morning you arise with a dull, heavy feel ing about the head and extreme nausea at the stom ach; you cau eat nothing with a relish, to work is a task, as you have that dull pain and sense of oppres sion which demonstrates the fact that CATARRH HAS SECURED A VICTIM. Now when you realizo this fact, do not get frightened and run and pay five or ten dollars for worthless advice, but invest just 35 cents in a box ot RIDER’S German Snuff, Uso it according to directions, and a euro is war ranted. PEOPLE OF NEW ENGLAND, Beware of thia bane of the age; do not be cut down in the prime of life and hurried to the grave. Remember Catarrh caimeM Connnmption. and by the use of thin reme dy yon will certainly be cured. MEN AND WOMEN, wo mean you who are troubled with these com plaints, alas! so common, such as Partial Paralysis, Neuralgia of the Head, Dim Vision, Loss of Energy, Lose no time to rid yourself of what in time will kill you, for all of the above are the results of neglected Catarrh. MOTHERS! MOTHERS: We beg of you do not give your little ones Worm Medicine when they complain of being ‘‘stuffed up.’* No, no! they have what is far worse and more dau gerous than a myriad of worms. They have IflFASTILE CATARRH, Which, when neglected, and their bodies are placed in a horizontal position, leads very often to what is known as a SUDDEN CROUP, which in nine cases out of ten cannot be cured, and you behold your loved one die before your eyes. Mothers, alwavs keep on hand a box of J R/EDER’S GERMAN SNUFF. srile everywhere. Price only 35 cents. SMITH, DOOLITTLE & SMITH, 2G Txemont St., Boston, Agents for U. S. dec7MW&Ssn6m MISCELLANEOUS. Bailey & Noyes, GENERAL AGENTS — FOR — Chickering & Sons’ PIANOFORTES Submit the following facts to those who contemplate buying a PIANO, trusting that a more com plete knowledge of the superior advantages possessed by the CHICKERING manufacturers will help to decide all purchasers who want the best. 1. The Chickering Pianos have been exhibited in competition with the pianos or every well known maker in the world, and in every instance, without a single exception, have been awarded Honors and Prizes in advance of all Competitors. 2. Nearly Fifty Thousand Chickering Pianos have been manufactured and sold. Last year Chlckering & Sons manufactured and sold more Pianos by sev eral hundred than any other first-class piano maker in the United Slates. 3. Chiokering & Sons’ Factory is thedargest piano manufactory in tho world. 4. All the Vital Points of Improvement in all Pianos now made in America were first introduced by Chickering & Sons, and subsequently copied or imitated by all other makers in tho country, without exception. 5. Every part of the Chickering Piano is made in the Chickering Factory (except, of course, the hard ware used in the pianos, which is purchased by every maker), and the immense force of skilled artisans employed is, and always has been under the personal supervision of Chlckering & Sons. Chickering & Sons being the largest manufacturers in the world, and having the first reputation, have not only been able to employ the best men in the various branches of manufacture, but they have been caused positive inconvenience at times by the number of applications lor employment irom tne oest worumen or otner makers. 6. A piano is usually a purchase of a lifetime, therefore great care should be used in selection— “The Best is the Cheapest.” Buy of a honse whose representations can be believed and whose business to day, at the end ot fifty-three years of unexampled prosperity, Is larger than that of any other maker, and whose piano3 are endorsed as The Best by the International Expositions of France and England, and by the unanimous testimony of the most noted Art Institutions and Artists of the World.
