Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
DYSPEPSIA AND SICK HEADACHE.
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in the right side, under the
edge of the ribs, increases on pres
sure ; sometimes the pain is in the left
side ; the patient is rarely able to lie
on the left side ; sometimes the pain
is felt under the shoulder blade, and
it frequently extends to the top of the
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken
for rheumatism in the arm. The stom
ach is affected with loss of appetite
and sickness ; the bowels in general
are costive, sometimes alternative with
lax ; the head is troubled with pain,
accompanied with a dull, heavy sen
sation in the back part. There is gen
erally a considerable loss of memory,
accompanied with a painful sensation
of having left undone something which
ought to have been done. A slight,
dry cough is sometimes an attendant.
The patient complains of weariness r,
and debility ; he is easily startled, his
feet are cold or burning, and he com--plains
of a prickly sensation of the
skin ; his spirits are Jo w ; and although
he is "satisfied that exercise would be
beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely
summon up'ibrtltude enough, tt try it.

THE OPENING OF THE SESSION.
Feeling: Among the Partisans The
Electoral Count Bill.
Special to New York Herald. ' "
Washington, November 30. Both
parties show a disposition to open
the session very qnietly. Promi
nent Republicans say to-day that they
do not think it good policy, for the pres
ent at least, to recommence their old
game of drawing out the Democrats.
They prefer to await the developments
of the Democratic policy. Prominent
Democrats, for their part, say that they
do not wisli to see the folly of the extra
session repeated. Mr. Atkins, chair
man of the appropriations committee,
holds, so some of the members of the
committee say, that the appropriation
for the pay of marshals for election
purposes, which failed at the extra ses
sion and which comes up now as a de
ficiency, should be promptly provided
for by the House, and the moderate
Democrats desire to avoid a repetition
of the heated discussions and. futile
contests with the President into which
they were led last summer. It remains
to be seen, however, whether they cn
control their wild men, and if not
whether the moderates will have the
firmness and good sense to cut adrift
from these wild men. Leading Demo
cratic Senators desire to bring up for
settlement at the earliest day the bill
providing for a better method of count
ing the votes for President and Vice
President. It is probable, however, that
this will cause a prolonged and tedious
debate in the Senate, which on numer
ous occasions has shown itself very
anxious to leave this unfortunate ques
tion open and unsettled. The late Sen
ator Morton, who took a very great in
terest in the matter, tried, on two or
three occasions to get some definite rule
adopted, but with all his pertinacity
always failed, finding opponents in his
own party as well as among the Demo
crats. It is a curious fact that the Sen
ate did once pass a bill to which the
House was then ready to consent with
out delay, but Senator Thurman, after
the passage, moved a reconsideration
for some trivial cause. To oblige Jum
the Senators granted a reconsideration,
and the bill was never again heard of.
Now if this bill of Senator Morton had
beeome a law, as wauld haveliappened
bo fpr Senator Thurman's interfer
ence, its provisions would have carried
Mr. Tilden into the White House in
1877 without an electoral commission
