Tucker's medicine, popularly called "No, 59," is potent and safe. It ought to be on the shelf in every nursery and in the satchel on every journey. Going from home I always carry some of it with me, and have administered it to many who in car or steamer have been taken sick. Better smash your brandy flask and the various styles of "Bitters," which are Rum put up under enticing nomenclature, and take with you a bottle of Doctor Tucker's 59 as a pocket pistol with which to shoot down physical disorders.

The transfer of Capt Watts met with general approval among the offloevs, who evinced the greatest satlataction over his good luck, lor such a transfer could not hut be considered In the light of promotion, as it comes with a salary of .'52600 per annum. Then his transfer to the Inspector's department was looked upon as showing the confidence reposed in him by the commlsBloners. Gen Martin eKpressod his especial appreciation of the chief's strict probity, high character and honesty. The nece.=i-slty of infusing new life into the "bureau of criminal Investigation," as the Inspector's department is known, was gone over by the chairman, who, however, had no fault to tlnd with the chief. The latter had done as well as was to be expected from the condltionB to improve which was the aim of the oommlsloners. To bring the detective sj'Stem of Boston's police department up to the highest standard was the end sought, and therefore it was the intention of the board to bring the super-vlaion of the inspectors' work more dl-rectlj' under a superior control, with a detective of experience at the helm. Accordingly, the creation of an assiat-ant Or deputy chief Inspector had been decided on In the person of Capt �William B. Watts of the 3d division.

At the eame time it was hinted that the governor would seek to impress on the general the necessity ot proceeding with due care, so as not to afford any political capital as against hU^ own gubernatorial reelection in November. The Special oITioers detailed from divisions to the inspectors' office, all appeared quite jubilant over tlielr change, they seeming to regard their luck as u sort of promotion. The liquor officers concerned, while satisfied, apparently, had but little to say. None of the captains ot divisions cared to talk on the general subject, except to say that whatever construction some people might place on the action of the commlBsionerB, they (thp captains) proposed to perform their full duties in caring for their respective districts. It is expected now that Boston's police will be more than ever a terror to evildoers. Other surprises may be expected on Gen Martin's return from the woolly woods of Ivlaine.

WASHINGTON, Aug 18-There was a very slack attendance of senators today while yesterday's journal was being read, and two motions to dispense with its reading were met with prompt objection from the republican side ot the chamber. The foliov/lng was taken from the calendar and passed : Senate bill to amend the act granting the right of way to the Hutchinson & Southern railroad company through the Indian territory. The resolution offered yesterday by Mr Harris, dem, Tenn, for the appointment of Mr White of California to fill the vacancy on the finance committee, was laid before the senate. Mr Manderson, rep. Neb, stated that there would be no objection, he thought, to the consideration of the resolution this morning. He wished to say for himself and some others that the stand talten yesterday meant no measure of disrespect to the senator from California. Recognizing the ability and fitness of thar senator, there had been no personal feeling whatever in the matter. But it had been thought desirable that that important vacancy should not be filled without full consideration. Mr Hill, dem, N Y, concurred in the expression of the hope that the resolution might be adopted this morning without opposition. APPEASED LIKE ELOPXEa The be* Mid tweetMt lOc. a*�tntli� Uvket.

The resolution offoi-ed yesterday by Mr Murphy, dem, N Y, declaring there should bo no further legislation or change In revenue laws at this session was then laid before the senate Mr Gorman, dem, Md, asked that the resolution be laid aside temporarily, as he wished to make a suggestion to the senator from New York. The resolution was complied with and,' Mr Gorman moved' over to tlie seat of Jlr Murphy, where tlie two senators had a s'hort conversation. In the meantime the vice president laid before the senate tlie resolution offered by Mr Gray, dem, Del, yesterday, in structlng the finimco committee to report back the free .lugar bill, with an amendment providing a revenue duty on all sugars, without any differential duty on refined sugars. TO that resolution a substitute was offered by Mr Manderson, rep. Neb, instructing the committee on finance to report baolc the bill leaving sugar free and reenaoting the provisions of the Mc-Klnley act for a sugar bounty. A demand for a division of the question on Mr Manderson's substitute v.-as made by .Mr Turpie, dem, Ind, and a long discussion followed on tlie parliamentary point Involved in It. Tije vice president ruled tliat the vote ehould be taken on Mr Manderson's amendment, and that that was not dl-vlsiljle. The vote v/as taken and re-BUltod, yeas 21, nays 20. As there was no quorum voting, the rollcall was called and 54 senators responded. Then Mr Gorman, dem, Md, suggested that as there was evidently no voting .quorum present, the resolution bo laid aside temporarily, and the suggestion was agreed to. Thereupon Mr Murphy's resolution was again taken up, and Mr Murphy modified it so as to read: KtBolvi'd, 'J'liul ill ilin opinion of the ncnntc the enuotiiiGiit of rurtliur legislation on contested miittors In this Hc^sslon Is iiupractlcniilo: and tlHit fongrnm slioulil adjourn at llio earll-ebt [Hibslble dnt(^ The vote was taken and the resolution was agreed to, yeas 27, nays IG, as follows: Yons-Messrs Aldrloli, Allison, Blanclmrd, OuItiM-y, (.!lir,'y, CImiidlor, ChIIotu, Tllivls, DolpJi, Oa!lin,'4 i had been over 000 aineuiliiniitii ailoi.tcd In the senate, and there had been ii... examination ot tlie-m lu i.\uiffi eiu'r, except, perhapf.:, between the factions of the democratic party.

Affairs of Oompany Have Been in Bad Way for Some Time. PORTSMOUTH, Aug 18-The announcement made this mcrnlng that the 'Portsmouth company at South llerwlck. Mo, whloli iias been engaged In the manufacture of cotton goods tor the past halt century, was Insolvent, did not create any great surprise hi this city, as It was gone'.'ally itn'JVMi that tbe company had been In a bad way for Botn0 time, and that recently uppUcatlohs had been made to tiie U S court ttt Portland to appoint a receiver. The statement, however, that William H. Rollins of this city, pi'esldent of tlie Porteniouth company, had been guilty of irregular transactions in regard to the indorsing of the company's notes was a surprise, and was generally disbelieved, as Mr Rollins' standing In the community Is of the beat and sufiplclon had never before been pointed In nia direction. With the view oC obtaining Pres Rollins' version of the Portsmouth company's affairs The Globe reporter culled upon him this afternoon. He was found at Ills office on Pleasant St, busily engaged In preparing statements as to the I'ortamouth company's affairs. When asked If he had road the article which appeared tlil.s morning in a Bo.ston paper as to the affnlrs of the company and his connection with It, he Bttid ho had, and that tlicre were some very glaring mlsstatemeiits. "In fho first place," he said, "the statement that I ever got a note of the company's, that I had Indorsed, discounted in Boston or by any business man from that city who passed the summer hert la false. "a few months ago a well-known business man of Boston, who passes his summers in this vicinity, wrote me that he had some of the company's notes in his possesBlon, and asked as to the company's standing. I Immediately replied that I was sorry to hear that he had the paper, and that the company was In a bad way llnan-cially. "The finances ot the company were managed exclusively by the treasun.'r, Mr Samuel Hale of South Berwick, v/ho followed out the example set by his grandfather and father for a period of over 00 years. "I have had no connection with the handling of the notes except to Indorse for the treasurer. Within a few months X learned that they amounted to much more than I expected, as notes now appear hold by persons who claim to be Innocent holders which 1 had been Informed and had every i-oason to believe had been paid. "Not only have I indorsed notes for the company, but have perfioniilly advanced money an late as la.>it Januai-y to help tide over the affairs and get the company on a sound basis once more. "In regard to the selling of the notes at high rates of Interest by Collins and Hawson to Boston parties, 1 have no knowledge, but from thlnjis that 1 have learned of late 1 liave every reason to believe that upward of SSO.OOO Keeuretl by these parties never reached the eetii-pany."

MANCHBST.I3R, N H, Aug 18-A sensational drowning accident oecurred at the Amoakeag gate house this afternoon, in which a Swede, Andrew Ha!-lln, well known among his nationality, lost hlB life, and Carl Ekholm, a companion, very nearly met death in an attempt to rescue ills friend. Haiiin tind Kldiolm entered a- boat for a sail on the river. They stepped Into the craft, unloosened tlio rope and cast off. The current of the river as It fiow.s beneatii the gate house and enters the main canal is very swift, and before the young men liad gained their seats and could use their oars, the strong mirrent bore the boat to the yawning opening beneath the gate house, and through which the water pours with terrific force. Both men at once lost their heads, and 1-Iallln especially became very much frightened. Superintendent William B. Stearns, who has charge of the gate house, yelled to them ho would save them, butllallln isprang out of the boat. Hardly was Hallln in the water when Elt-holm Jumped courageously to save him. lOkliolm could .^wlrn, but the current v.'as so powerful as this point that he could not hold hlH own. Just iiH Hallln disappeared under the gate house, hlkholm reached the stone abutment, and clinging by his fingers to the crevices in the roclcs, managed to keep himself from being swept through until Mr Stearns and his as-Klstant came to his rescue. They let the end of a ladder down to hhn, and by its means pulled him up. Tlie boat, sail, oars and all disappeared In the terrible whirlpool that circled under the gatehouse, and in a few seconds appeared on the soutli side of the gateliouiie, and bottom side up, wont down tlie eaiial. The only trace of Hallln tliat could be seen was the unfortunate man's hat, as It floated down the canal, but la in anticipated that his body will bo found tonight, as the water is drawn from the canal. The drowm^d man was^an employe of the Manchester mills, and a bright, intelligent young man. ite was poKKCHHCd of the best of habits, a member of tho Swedl.sh Lutheran church, and tlie senior past chief templar of Monitor fodge of Good Templars. lie has an aunt in this city and a father and mother in Sweden.

MEttRIMAC, Aug IS-The state polloS have taken charge of the murder ot Henry E. Crosby, and are now looking for a farm hand employed by Jacob T. Crosby during the summer, and who left his employ Aug G. The clews are slight and scant. No one saw the faces of the burglars and murderers, and no one recognized the voices of any of them In the threats and commands made by them. That at least one of the trio of men was aociualnted with the farm premises is tho strongest evidence in the possession ot the police, and with that point in view they are looking for Frank Little. It is supposed that Little Is the only living person outside the family ot Jacob Crosby who knew a shot gun was kept on a rough shelf over the stalls ot the horses In the barn, yet when Mr Crosby ran for this gun, after the burglars had entered the house, lb was missing. The first attempt of the burglars ta enter the house was made at a windowl ot the sleeping room of Mr and Mrs Crosby. When the burglars retreated after firing the shots which killed Henry B. Crosby, they went through the fields, where they could strilte a cart path that would bring them again to the maia road, some distance below the house, and thereby avoid any people who mlghti bo going there along the main road. The burglars left nothing material be-� hind them which might lead to theln identification. They took eight cents in money and ai human life. Tho scene of the murder Is a farm oal tho main road from Merrlmac to Haver-, hill, about a, mile from the center of tha town. Fi'ontlng on tho road, and set back leas than 20 feet from the street line, is tha farm house of Jacob T, Crosby. I-lo l.i n prosperous fsirmer, well known and came from Maine IC years ago. He has a wife and five ehfldran, tha oldest a boy of 111, and the youngest 3 months. The family retired later than usual last night, as tho little baby was peev-. Ish. They left it lamp burning In thet, Gontlnuoci on the Fifth Patte.
