It is true that it was coutested

and valuable. Hut they wished to act;

hut the Republicans eoosole themselves 
by the fact that they have a majority iu 
both houses of the Legislature. This

in tbe Presidential election. In Con-

the State is entitled to am-o Representa-

The Chief Justice again exprc s.- r| the 
p!niun that the witness could answer the

illness, and that owing to the arrange-

of tbe counsel for the respondent to pro-

quest the Court adjourned. Messrs. 
Sumner, Wilson, Chandler, Drake and 
Howard voted ^Pinst an adjournment. 
As Mr. Stanbe^ continues quite ill to- 
night, it is not probable that the Court 
1 will proceed with auy evidence before 

The impeachment managers met at 10 
o'clock, A. M., and had Gen. Sherman 
before them for an elaborate preliminary 
examination, to see if his evidence could 
be of any u?eto the prosecution on cross- 
examination in open court. 

After a severe questioning. Gen Sher- 
man adhered to his maiu tc tin»ony of 
yesterday, and declared that the Presi- 
dent never, in tbe slightest degree, in- 
timated to him that be intended to get 
possessiou of the War Office by force, 
or to do anything beyond what he stated 
to the Court yesterday. 

The Manager*, therefore, decided not

Messrs.'j. N. Harris & Co: I will say that 
I have been deuling in medicines for the 
last fourteen years, and have never before 
totiud preparation* that would have never 
before found preparations I hat would equal 
your "Perry Davis Pain Killer" anil "Al-

very rapidly, but give the most perfect sat- 
isfaction iu every case th:K has come 10 my 
knowledge. In my practice I very seldom 
prescribe a patent medicine, but with your 
'•Pain Killer' and " Lung Balsam,' having 
entire confidence in them, and knowing that 
they posses* valuable medicinal properties, 
I freely use them in my daily practice. Ks- 
pccially have I used the '-Allen's Lung 
Balsam,'' and with the most unbounded suc- 
cess. As an expectorant it is most certain- 
ly far ahead of any similar preparations I 
have ever known. The "Pain Killer" is 
tbe most standard medicine I have for sale, 
and many families in this vicinity would aa 
soon think of being out of beef or bread ns
