CHICAGO. Jan. S.-r-Wovd has benn're- ceived here that three masked robbers broke into the Dclavan, Wis., postof- fice at .'t o'clock yesterday, "blew open the safe, secured nil the cash nnd stamps it contained, bound and gagged the night watchman, forced the night clerk in a livery stable to give them a horse and surrey, and then bound and gagged him and made, their escape. The robbers were nt work on tlie safe in the postoflice when Clmnncey Sage, the niglit watchman, first saw them. Foolishly he. attempted to rout them single-handed and failed. Tho marauders overpowered him and .com- tjelled him a.t the points of three revolvers to go into the ofiice, where they gagged him. bound him hand and foot, and dumped him into a corner. Then the burglars went back to their work. Sage,securely gagged and bound,heard them resume their drilling and could distinguish every motion they made. They said nothing, however, that would lead to their identification. The door was opened and the thieves pulled out everything of value in the safe. Money and stamps were quickly thrown into the the robbers curried, the rubbish was kicked up into ti. pile in a corner and tho trio left the ofiice. Sage was able to follow the whole proceedings, but was powerless to give an alarm. He remained tied in the corner until discovered thereby Watchman Sturtevant about 0 o'clock. The robbers then proceeded to a livery stable and forced the attendant to harness a team to a surrey, and drove away. They went in the direction of Clinton Junction, which is twelve miles away. Jf they d»«ove rapidly they had time enough to get there and catch the Chicago and Northwestern train due in Chicago at 6 o'clock yesterday morning. This was before the news of the robbery hnd reached Chicago, so there was no danger of their being apprehended at the train, and they would have had plenty of time to get into hiding in the city. Of the two men who saw the robbers Utley is able to give the better description, butcven this is f n r from satisfactory. There was only a dim light burning in the .stable, and they were well inn filed up with their cups drawn down over their eyes. Sage can give almost, no dcsi-ription. They overpowered him si ml put him in another room from the one in which he was working almost before lie knew what had happened. Delavan is a town of ,-;,()()l) inhabitants, thirty-nine miles west of Western Union junction on tlie St. I'aul road and about one hundred miles from Chicago. It is a .summer resort of considerable popularity, but there would not be likely to bo any great amount of cash in the postollicc there. II. 'J'. Sharp is the uostinnsfer. Think n VORNOI Went Down.

A number of our great and most in vetcrate tobacco smokers and chewers have quit the use of the filthy weed. The talismanic article that does tho work is No-to-bac. The reform was started by Aaron Gorbcr, who was a confirmed slave for many years to the use of tobacco. He tried tho use of No-to-bac, and to his {Treat surprise and delight it cured him. Hon. C. W. Ashcoin, who hud been smoking for sixty years, tried No-to-bac, and it cured lam. col. wiuniiei istontencr. who would cat up tobacco like a cow eats hay, tried this wonderful remedy, and even Samuel,after all his years of slavery, lost the desire. .1. C. Cobler, Lessin'g- Kvans. Frank Dell, George B. May, C. O. Skillington, Hanson Kobi- nett, Frank llershberger. .lohu Shinn and others have since tried No-to-bac and in every case they report, not only a cure of the tobacco habit, but a wonderful improvement in their general physical and mental condition, all of which goes to show that the use of tobacco had been injurious to them in more ways than one. All of the above gentlemen are so well pleased with the results that we ilo not hesitate to join them in recom mending it to suffering humanity, as we. have thoroughly investigated and are satisfied that Ko-to-bac does tho work well and is a boon to mankind. The cost is trifling—a dollar a box— and the makers, The Sterling ttcmedy company, have so much faith in No-to- bac that they absolutely guarantee three boxes to cure any case, or refund money. One box in every instance in the above, effected a cure, with one or two exceptions. No-to-bac has a wonderful sale upon its merits alone, throughout the United States, and can be secured at almost any drug store in this country or Canada,'and it is made by The Sterling- Remedy company, Chicago oftice, 4f> Randolph street; New Yprk oftice, K) Spruce street. —[From The Press, Everett, Pa., Dec. 15, 1803.] Trial Ituglug To- Day.

LONDON, Jan. 0.— The seventy-first and last of the original clauses of the parish councils bill was passed by the house of commons last evening. The announcement of the fact wus received with }oud ministerial cheers BULB IS fl« ttefatet to Step fl6<tft •SAX Fiuxersco, Cat., Jnn. «.-— f he revenue cutter Corwin arrived at the •entrance of the harbor 'yesterday morning about 11 o'clock. WASHINGTON, .Tan. .».— Brief official dispatches were received last night from the Corwin, but it is stated that Minister Willis' full dispatches had not come through tip till midnight. Secretary Greslmm absented himself from, his hotel till a late hour, and the only information given out was that he decided in the afternoon not to make public any news that might come during the evening. In spite of the secrecy observed, there it- ground for believing that Minister Willis conveyed to the administration the absolute defiance of the provisional government. and that he recounted his own communication with the queen nnd with ['resident Dole. As far an can be gathered Willis did not understand that he was to await congressional a.otion, but only that he was not to call out the marines without further instructions from Washington. He went right ahead and demanded from the queen whether she would comply with the conditions. When she. agreed he communicated with the provisional govern men t and politely suggested that it go out of existence. The government declined to recog- nise any right of Minister Willis to negotiate for the restoration of the monarch. The m'inister told the queen she. would have to wait, and the minister himself is waiting to know what step he shall take next. He especially wants instructions about the relations of himself to the provisional government when it transforms itself into a republic. According to tin; few hints dropped from official sources he does not apprehend an outbreak, though tho excitement continues unabated. At least tho positive statement is rnudc that the administration does not think there was any trouble after the departure of the Corwin. The belief in Washington, io that thfi vessel brought information that tho status quo was still maintained, but the greatest interest is to. learn how the qtice-n rewired the news that the administration had done all it could for her restoration' a ml had now turned her case over to congress.
