The " Lyttelton Times" says :—lt h.i.s been rumoured that Messrs E. 0. Wright and G. G. Stead will be candidates for I Christchurch at tha approaching general election. Captain Campbell, of the ship Hoogley, from Melbourne, has cleared up the mystery of the schooner Carmelite, of Vancouver (British Columbia), which left Sydney on December 27th, and has not since been heard from. The Hoogley left Sydney on January 30, and during the latter part of February she sighted the Carmelite on firo. The Hoogley went to the schooner's assistance and the two crews worked for five days and nights, but could not extinguish the fire. Finally the flames drove the crew to the boats and they were taken on board the Hoogley. The latter vessel then made for Valparaiso, but encountered a cyclone, and was driven out of her course. Then the provisions ran low and the supplies of fresh water gave out, after which the sufferings of the two crews became intense. One man suffering from delirium jumped overboard and was drowned. Eventually out of a total of twenty-one men only eight were left to work the ship. When the stock of provisions was gone, death stared the sailors m the face. Happily » small amount of brandy had been saved, and this prolonged their existance until May 10, when the men were so weak that the}' could no longer trim the ship's sails. The Hoogley then drifted towards the coast, and was finally met by the guano steamer El Rey, which towed her to Ascension Island. The best medicine known is SANDER and SONS' EUGALPTI FXTRACT. Test its eminent powerful effects m coughs, colds, influenza, etc.—the relief is instantaneous. Thousands give the most gratifying testimony. His Majesty the King of Italy, and medical syndicates all over the globe, are its patrons. Read the official reports that accompany each bottle. We have no occasion to offer rewards m proof of the genuineness of our references. The official reports of medical clinics and universities, the official communication of the Consul-General for Italy at Melbourne; the diploma awarded International Exhibition, Amsterdam—all these are authentic documents, and, as such, not open to doubt. We add here epitome o. one of the various cases treated by Siegenf M.D , Professor, etc. Burning of the right hand through the explosion of a small oil stove. The epidermis on the volar and palmer side of the hand of the thirty-year-old patient was completely separated and lifted up as far as the joint of the hand. The likewise lifted nails were hanging looses md half of the phalanx of the nail of the middle finger was coaled. The wounds thus contracted healed m three weeks under daily application of Eucalypti Extract dressing. The patient has retained the full use of the hand.—(Adv 1 Holloway's Pills.—Wrongs made right. —Every day that any bodily suffering is permitted to continue renders it more certain to become chronic or dangerous. Holloway's purifying, cooling, ;uid strengthening Pills aye well adapted for any irregularity of the human body, and should be taken when the stomach is disordered, the liver deranged, the kidneys inactive, the bowels torpid, or the brain muddled. With this medicine every invalid can cure himself, and those who are weak and infirm through imperfect digestion may make themselves strong and stout by Holloway's excellent Pills. A few doses of them iisually mitigate the most painful symptoms caused by undigested food, from which they thoroughly free the alimentary canal, and completely restore its natural power and action Stuart Mill is recognised as one of the most powerful and candid friends the working classes ever had. In his " Political Economy " he makes the following remarks : —"No severity, necessary to the purpose, it too great to be employed against attempts to compel workmen to join a union, or to take part m a strike, by threats or violence. Mere moral compulsion, by expression of l opinion, the law ought not to interfere with ; it belongs to more enlightened opinion to restrain it by rectifying the moral sentiments of the people. Other questions arise, when the combination, being voluntary, proposes to itself objects, really contrary to the public good. High wages and saort hours are generally good object, or, at all events, may be so; but m many trades unions it is among their rules that there shall be no task work, or no difference of pay between the most expert workmen and the most unskilful, or that no member of the union shall earn more than a certain sum per week. Theae are combinations to effect objects which are pernicious."
