"Who, when thine infunt life was young,
Delighted, o'er thy cradle hung,
"With pity soothed each childish moan,
And made thy Utile griefs licr own ?
Who sleepless watched in hours of pain,
Nor smiled till thou wert well again !
"Who sorrowed from thy sight to part,
And bore thee, absent, on her heart!
Thy mother, hoy ! How canst thou pay
Her tender cire by night tuid day !
Who joined thy sports with cheerful air,
And joyed to sec thee strong and fair?
"Who, with fond pride, to guest and friend.
"Would still the darling child commend ?
Whose tears in secret, flowed like rain,
If sin or woe thy life did stain !
And who with prayer's unceasing sigh,
Besought for thee a home on high ?
Thy mother, boy ! How canst thou pay
Her tireless lore by night and day !
Hear on thy brow the lofiy smile
Of upright duty, free from guile ;
"With earn est diligence restrain
The word, the look, that gives her pain;
If weary toil her path invade,
Come fond and fearless to her aid ;
"Nerve the young arm her steps to guide ;
If fades her check, be near her side ;
And by a life of goodness pay
Her care and love, by night and day.

Not all they say or do ran make
My head, or tooth, or finger ache,
Nor mar my shape, nor scar my face,
Nor put one feature out of place :
Nor will ten thousand, thousand lies,
Make me less virtuous, learned or wise;
The most effectual way to baulk
Their malice, is to let them talk.

To the Editors : I very well remem
ber a saying of an old gentleman, an ex
cellent fanner that if you would make a
hog profitable, you should not let him see
a winter; and 1 think I have satsfud my
self, that spring pigs well kept and nurs
ed, are far less expensive, and yield more
in return for their keeping than those
which are fifteen or eighteen months old.
But there is one thing quite certain; if we
prefer our store hogs to come in the fall,
we ought to be careful to keep them
through our long cold winters both warm
and dry. Every observant farmer knows
that if his cattle are not sheltered from
the cold weather and storm, they will re
quire more food to keep them in tolerable
order, than if they are kept warm and
comfortable. Just so it is with pigs if
they arc suffered to run over your premi
ses in the snow and sleet, with their legs

nrMIE object of this establishment is
lo supply a want greatly felt by re
spectable travellers on our western high
ways by residents, without family, ta
ken sick and by patients from the sur
rounding towns and country who resori
lo this place for relief Irom surgical and
other diseases. Such have often suffered
from the want of the various comforts
and attentions so necessary and agreeable
to the sick, and from careless and un
faithful nurses; and been subjected lo
heavy and unreasonable charges.
Invalids will here be provided with
coustant, faithful and comfortable atten
dance, snd at a rale much below the usu
al charges.
While the care of both physicians will
be extended to every variety of disease,
it is intended by Dr. Speer, to give spe
cial attention to
To these branches of his profession
he has given a large share of his atten
ion for the last twenty-five years, and
he will continue to devote to them the
experience acquired by a coustant prac
tice during that lime.
The Hotel for Invalids is not an exper
iment. Its establishment is suggested
not only as necessary lo supply an evi
dent want m this city, m the entire ab
sence of any special provision for the
sick, but is warranted also by the success
nf similar institutions at Cincinnati and
New Orleans the former under the care
of Drs. Taliaferro, Marshall and Strader
the latter under that of Dr. Stone.
The" building selected for the purpose
is situated at the ccrner of Federal and
Robinson streets, in Allegheny city, ad
joining the city of Pittsburgh. - It is
commodious and roomy, and furnished
with all accommodations necessary for
the sick.
