    - Fatal Affray.
Ex Gov William Bibb, of Ohio, (no
residing in Illinois,) shot two men who we
luirt of a gang insulting and dissnrbing h
household at midnight, on the 20th inst. T1
Roekford Republican gives the following a
count of this deplorable tragedy :
" Our community was startled yesterday a
teruoon by the announcement that Ex Go
Bibb, now a resident of Seward in this eouj
ty, but formerly of Ohio, of which State "
was Governor, had befcn molested at Ins re
dence bv a mob of men, and had fired upt
and shot two of them, kiliing one man instarj
lv. The particulars as near as we have be|
able to gather them up to the time oi goi^
to press, are as follows :
" It appears that for sometime past, a go
deal of coldness, and in many instances actr
bad feeling, had been growing up among so
of the Governor's neighbors, as against hi
self and family, springing, it is said, niorg
le-s out of jealousy of his pecuniary circu
stances, and a belief that lie was somewli
aristocratic in his tastes ami associations. 1
return of his son with his wife 011 1 hursd
night from the East, whither he had been
get married, was fixed upon by the rowdy p
tion of the vouug men of the neighborhood
a proper occasion to manifest their ill feelin
They accordingly prepared themselves w
cow-bells, guns, tin-pans, and other articles
dinarily used on such occasions, and repaii
to the "residence of the (iovernor at a late h
in the night, and commenced making all mi
ner of and outcries, assail
the house with stones, and firing towardj
with their guns. After enduiing this assij
for some time in silence, Gov. Bibb made
appearance at the front ot his house, audj
meliorated with the mob, requesting then#
desist. This request was received with lit
intrs and bowlings, and ai. increase of clan
After a little time he again came
remarked that patience had ceased to heap
tue, and that if they did not desist and 1$
the premises, he would be compelled to|
violence. This threat only seemed to eg
perate the assailants, who replied that T
had come there to fiirht, and were only
iag for Inm to comment or words to suclr
port, lie then wc ' 10 t house and bros
out a double-barrelled shot gun, firing onef
rel at the feet of the ring-leader? of the \
which took effect upon one of the party,- 1
pling him in the leg. At this some of n
dispersed, while the others rallied and tie
a rush upon the Governor, who raised hi in
and discharged the other barrel at the e
most man, hitting him in the head and kig
hi 111 instantly, whereupon his assailautsd
denly decamped.
" We gather the above facts from a rh
bor of Gov. Bibb's, and give them as r ed
without vouching for their entire correess.
The affair is a very sad one, and has eted
much excitement in this community."
RAILROAD. — An accident of a most soivtul
character haj.pened to the half-past'ear

besides it soon generates serious and often fatal disease?,
which might have been avoided by the timely and judi
cious use of a good purgativ*-. This isalike true of Colds,
Feverish symptoms, and Hillious derangement". They
all tend t" become or produce the deep seated and for
midable distempers which load the hearses all oer the
land. Hence a reliable family physic is of the lirst im
portance to the public health, and this Pill has been per
fected with consummate skill to meet that demand. An
extensive trial of its virtues hv Physicians, Professors,
and Patients, ha? shown results surpassing anything
farther to known of any medicine. Cures have been ef
fected ocyond belief, were they not substantiated by per
sons of -neb exalted positions and character as to forbid
the suspicion of untruth.
Among the eminent gentlemen who have testified in
favor of tlie-e Pills, we may mention :
Joct. A. A. HAYES, Analytical Chemist of Boston,
at;l State Asayer of Massachusetts, whose high Profes
sional character is endorsed bv the—
Hon. EDWARD EVERETT, Senator of the United
ROBERT ('. WIXTHROP, Ex Speaker of the House of
AllHoT 1' LAWRENCE. Minister Plen. to England.

WM. B. ASTOR, the richest man in America.
S. KELANDA CO., Proprietors of the Metropolitan
Hotel, and others.
Did space permit, we could eive many hundred certi
ficates 110111 all parts where the Pills have been used, but
evidence even more convincing than the experience of
eminent public men. is found in their effects upon trial.
These Pills, the result of long investigation and study,
are ofleied to the public as the best and most complete
which the present state of medical science can afford.—
They arc compounded not of the drugs themselves,but of
the medicinal virtues only of Vegetable remedies extract
ed fay Chemical process in a state of purity, and combin
ed together in such a manner as to insure the best results.
Thi- system of composition for medicines has been found
in Cherry Pectoral and Pill- both, to produce a more ef
ficient remedy than had hitherto been obtained by any
process. The reason is perfectly obvious. While by tin
old mode of composition, every medicine is burdened with
more or lets of acrimonious and injurious qualities, by
this each individual virtue only that is desired for the cu
rative effect is present. All the inert and obnoxious
qualities of each substance employed are left behind, the
curative virtues only being retained. Hence it is self
evident the effects should prove as they have proved,
more purely remedial, and tbe Pills a more powerful an
tidote to disc,ise than any other medicine kuown to the

ih- men to be a wonderful medicine before its effects were
known. Many eminent Physicians have declared the
I same-thing of my l'iils. and even more confidently, and
