Disgcisep Aixjoitol.—The temperance pampers are calling the public attention to the fact that the candy or gum drops sold hv the confectionery stores are filled with brandy, an<i thai they are very much used by women and children, who iu this disguised form first acquit e a taste for alcoholic stimulants. Someof these drops are said to contain about a thimbleful of brandy. The atrocity of selling suW poison to children is too manifest to dwell * upon. The mischief will, no doubt.be in a great degree cured by calling attention to tho fact, and the question arises whether this illegal mode of selling rum is not indictable under the license law.—Phil.

How the Physic Works. The Legislature of Massachusetts is mallits branches overwhelmingly know-nothing and abolition. Already the fruits of the coalition have been manifest in the recklessness with which everybody outside of the organization has been assailed. & But it seems that ihe warfare is about to commence among the reformers themselves. The Dispatch, a know-nothing organ, says that Chailes W. Slack, Esq., has dissolved his connection with the k. n. organization. We learn from the same source that this new party, which it has been affirmed, was formed in consequence of the corruptions of the old parties, transcend all that has been heard of before in political wickedness. About the legislative caucus for the nomination of a candidate for United Slates Senator, the Dispatch speaks thus: — "Mr. Ely merited, by all that was good, just anil true, the senatorial nomination: and we have no-hesitation in asserting, before and to the people, that his defeat was procured by...

Fh-.iy.oRAM.K Condition* op tt»: ENRusn Aumv iv the CniMKA.—The London Times, in a leading article, draws a most deplorable picture of the state of the army in the Crimea. At the beginning of January the army could muster only 14.000 bayonets. The artillery and engineers had been reduced in the same proportion, and the,cavalry in fact no longer existed. The deaths amounted to fio per day, and the niinilic-r disabled l>3 - fatigue aud sickness amounted to T,(U)O per week. This ratio, the Times thinks, is rapidly on the increase, and it is computed that out oftb ^ 14.000 men nominally tit for service, only 2,000 are in good health. The army was an army of invalids at the beginning of the month, and the Crimean winter had not fullv set in.
