THE GENUINE
DR.C.IcLANE'S
Celebrated American
WORM SPECIFIC
OR
VERMIFUGE.
SYMPTOMS OF WORMS.
THE countenance is pale and lead
en-colored, with occasional flushes,
or a circumscribed spot on one or both
cheeks ; the eyes become dull ; the
pupils dilate ; an azure semicircle
runs along the . lower eye-lid ; the
nose is irritated, swells, and sometimes
bleeds ; a swelling of the upper lip ;
occasional headache, with humming
or throbbincr of the ears ; an unusual
secretion of saliva ; slimy or furred
tongue ; breath very foul, particularly
in the morning ; appetite variable,
sometimes voracious, with a gnawing
sensation of the stomach, at others,
entirely gone ; fleeting pains in the
stomach ; occasional nausea and vom
iting ; violent pains throughout the
abdomen ; bowels irregular, at times
costive ; stools slimy, not unfrequent
ly tinged with blood ; belly swollen
and hard ; urine turbid ; respiration
occasionally difficult, and accompa
nied by hiccough ; cough sometimes
dry and convulsive ; uneasy and dis
turbed sleep, with grinding of the
teeth ; temper variable, but generally
irritable, &c.
Whenever the above symptoms
are found to exist,
DR. C. McLANE'S VERMIFUGE
will certainly effect a cure.
IT DOES NOT CONTAIN MERCURY
in any form ; it is an innocent prepa
ration, not capable of doing tke slightest
injury to the twst tender infant.
The genuine Dr. McLane's Ver
mifuge bears the signatares of C.
McLane and Fleming Bros, on the
wrapper. :o:
DR. C. McJLANE'S
LIVER PILLS
are not recommended as a reinedy "for
all the ills that flesh is heir to," but in
affections of the liver, and in all Bilious
Complaints, Dyspepsia and Sick Head
ache, or diseases of that character, they
stand without a rival.
AGUE AND FEVER.
No better cathartic can be used prepar
atory to, or after taking Quinine.
As a sirop1? purgative they are un
equaled. A OF IMITATIONS.
The genuine are never sugar coated.
Each box has a red wax seal on the
lid, with the impression Dr. McLane's
Liver Pills.
Each wrapper bears the signatures of
C. McLane and Fleming Bros.
Insist upon having the genuine Dr.
C. McLane's Liver Pills, prepared by
Fleming Bros., of Pittsburgh, Pa., the
market being full of imitations of the
name McLane, spelled differently but
same pronunciation.

The Financial Question and tue Ite
publican. Plau of Aelion JVatonal
Republican Coiumillcc -I'ay of
. TTl&rklialH, Sec.
Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun.
THE FINANCIAL QUESTION.
Washington, Dec. 8. The commit
tee which was appointed by the Repub
lican caucus last Tuesday to propose a
plan ot action tor the party with refer
ence to the financial legislation that
has been or will be proposed has had
several meetings, and is ready to report
i,o the caucus. The committee consists
of Senators Morrill, Conkling, Hamlin,
McMillan, Booth, Kirkwood, Logan
and Carpenter. The committee has, as
already stated, decided unanimously,
with the exception of Senator Morrill,
to recommend that the Republicans in
Congress, as a party, oppose all legisla
tion whatever, the passage of which
wili affect the present financial status
of the count jy. They will report that
even the agitation of the subject must
disturb, and may damage, the commer
cial Drosnentv tnat is now Deins emov
ed, and that no sort onegislatiorr, "pro
posed, or un proposed, anecting the
finances could improve the present
monetary condition. This report re
ceives the assent ot all the committee
except Senator Morrill, of Vermont,
who wiu recommend, as a minority an
immediate attack upon the legal-tender
quality or the government notes and
the adoption of a plaa for their future
retirement. Senators Conkling and
Hamlin, of the committee, agree to the
report, although both of them favor
Senator Morrill's views, as far as the
greenback is concerned. The legisla
tion that the committee opposes in
cludes not only the Bayard resolution,
and other measures relating to the
greenback, but also all silver legislation
the Warner unlimited coinage bill,
the redemption of trade dollars, and
kindred propositions. The recommen
dations of the caucus committee will
without doubt, be adopted by the lie
publicans, and their policy in Congress
for the session will be opposition to all
action on the finances. As the Demo
cracy is widely divided in the Senate
on financial questions, and the Repub
licans have the balance of power, the
action of-the Republican committee, if
approved by Ihe full caucus, will be of
great importr. nee if the Democrats at
tempt any positive action. For this
reason the friends of Gov. Hendricks
are to-night claimiag that the wisdom
of the do-nothing pol'cy on the finances,
as advocated by them, is abundantly
demonstrated. The finance committee
of the Senate meets to-morrow, and the
Bayard resolution will probably be
taken up, but the Republicans will op
pose its consideration, and with Beck
and Voorhees, who are opposed to it,
will carry the point.
NATIONAL REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE.
A New York member of Congrers
has received information that Governor-elect
Cornell has wvicteo his resig
nation as a member of the national Re
publican committee, and that the Conk
ling interest is being exerted to secure
the appointment of ex-Congressman T.
C. riattin the place of Mr. Cornell.
The withdrawal of Mr. Cornell from
the committee changes veiv much the
situation i n regard to the chai rmanship,
made vacant bv the. death ot the late
Senator Chandler. The gentleman se
lected to succeed Mr. Chandler on the
committee belongs to what is known as
the anti-Chandler wingof the Michigan
Republicans. In the meeting. Oj: the
national committee on the 17to instant
the Question of the cha-vmanship and
of the place for holding the next na
tional convention wUl be the subject of
animated and protracted discussion.
The three places to be most prominent
ly pressed upon the committee are Phil
adelphia, Indianapolis and Chicago.
The Blaine men on the committee, who
claim that they are in the majority,
favor Chicago.
PAY OF UNITED STATES MARSHALS.
A Democratic member of the com
mittee on appropriations said to-day
that the delay of the committee in mak
ing appropriations for the marshals,
who were not provided for last session,
was entirety intentional, as the commit
tee desired to wa'fc untd the lUa'ted
States Supj-eme Court bad rendered its
decisions in what are known as the
Baltimore and Cincinnati "election
cases," which involve the constitution
ality of the Federal election laws au
thorizing the appointment of deputy
marshals on election days.

Stealing; Sermons.
Ner Yor'-: i.
Most of tho Baptist preachers agreed
yesterday that to pi each other men's
sermons under pretence that they are
their own, is dishonest, and some of the
brethren went so far as to call the prac
tice stealing. A result of the discussion
has been the -disco very that very many
plagiarJzed sermons are preached. Some
times the exact language is appropriat
ed, as well as the thoughts and argu
ments, but of tener the discourses are
rewritten. Many rural clergymen find
their burdens materially lightened by
subscribing to a weekly publication
which contains abstracts' of sermons
preached by the most noted of New
York and Brooklyn pulpit orators. In
each number are half a score of ser
mons skilfully divided into heads,
which any preacher of average intelli
gence can stjin out into a forty-minute
discourse. The sermons cover such a
wide range of topics that, by running
through a few back numbers, a subject
appropriate to almost any occasion may
be found. The editor of this sheet,
which has a large circulation, employs
two or three reporters, and also obtains
abstracts of sermons from clergymen
themselves.
The Effect of the No ih Carolina Ne
gro Exodus.
Wasb. Cor. Bleb roond Dispatch.
The fact that the negroes from North
Carolina en route to the Western Prom
ised Land stopped here ha3 been the
means of attracting the attention or the
whole country to the movement, and
eliciting from Republican as well as
Democratic sources a good deal C in
form at on ih regard to the treat nent
and condition of the colored people of
the Siutof .Hon Joseph. Martin, Re
publican member of the House from
North Carolina, says that the move
ment will Tb6 highly injurious to the
colored race, and that those who are
encouraging it are making a fatal mis
take. . The .negroes n bis section, he
savs, are well treated and have work.
Their personal rights, as a rule, are re
spected, and they have advantages of
schools and churches. He knew of no
ostracism of white men on account of
rnliiifs Mr. Cobh. of Indiana, thinks
this movemerk is bound, to fail, because
the negroes are not suited to the coun
try, and are taken there in a way and
for a purpose that excites the indigna
tion and opposition of the citizens ot
the State.'
