copy with pleasure the following Which
find in the Pittsburgh Gazette of the 17th inst.
Xbe success which has crowned the efforts of the
, B cipal. Bev. C. Pershing, is a sufficient
f oof of his qualifications; We know of no in
vitation of the kind in the country which We con
more cheerfully recommend to parents and
a,rJiuns who have daughters or Wards to edu
wte. Send for a catalogue. The Gazette says t
PiTTJBUJion Female College.—Thofalliterm
I f fdiis popular institution will close on Tuesday,
‘’7th inst. During the usual epm
ihtiions will take place, and in the evening the
Voung ladies will give a literary entertainment.
The last term has been the most successful in
the history of the College. Such bos been the in
creasing popularity of the institution that it has
become somewhat difficult to accommodate all
w bo attend. Nor is this popularity confined to
Pittsburgh. While it has grown rapidly in favor
here, its good name has gone abro id. Lou
isiauna, lowa, Illinois, Ohio, New Jersey.
Virginia and other States have sent their repre
sentatives. Among the causes that has contrib
uted to this result are, the energy and activity
of the President, Rev. I." C. Pershing, A. M. t
*bo is determined that no similar institution
shall excel it ; the superior advantages offered;
the ability of the Faculty and the healthfulncss
of Pittsburgh. Cue point deserves special at
tention. The stockholders are men of means,
who invested their money, not for personal
profit, but to have an institution of the highest
,prade in-our own city. The tuition fees, instead
of being appropriated to individual purposes,
are used to promote the interests and advance
ment of its patrons and pupils. There is no
temptation, therefore, to take an inferior teach
er because she can be had at a lower price, or
to employ less than are really necessary. Every
department is provided for. It is not an insti
tution for private gain, but pays all its teach
ers and professors fixed salaries. 'Owing to
this fact, and its large patronage, the Trustees
arc enabled to employ an unusually large, able
and experienced Faculty. Whatever profits
may accrue are returned to the patrons in the su
perior advantages afforded over smaller schools,
or those established for private gain only.
A fine Philosophical and Chemical apparatus,
selected by a gentleman of experience, has been
recently purchased in Boston. Preliminary
steps hqve alsobeen taken to secure a, Gradu
ate's Gallery, -m which will be {Raced the like
neas of ;ekch otasa as it graduates; a gallery of
he pointings as models for the pupils in this
department; a cabinet, &c. A system of prizes
to be distributed at the cud of the year, bos
alto been adopted. And, as an additional stim
ulus; the next session will close with a Literary
contest, the successful contestant to receive a
silver cup. ,
W.c arc requested tp urge those who desire to
enter to make early application, and especially
those who wish to enter as boarders, as but few
more boarders can bo accommodated.
Mis Killed. —On Tuesday morning la«t,
Mr. A. Sloss, of Pittsburgh, flagman on the
westward bound Fast Freight train, met with an
accidental Kittanning Point which resulted in
his death in about six hours afterwards. He
was riding on the “ pusher" of the train .and
when it stopped at the Point he jumped off the
engine, (intending to get on one of the curs of
the train,) and not noticing that the Eastward
stock trains were coming down the mountain,
be jumped against the engine of the first train*
which was then passing, by which he was struck
on the sile and face and knocked down between
the tracks. His forehead was broken in and his
face much mangled. He was brought to this
place and medical aid ‘summoned, but his inju
ries were such that aid could be of no avail, and
after lingering in misery, for about 6
hoars, death came to his relief. He leaves a
wife and oao child.
TniiKsciviKa—.We frequently hear this fes
tival spoken of as if it were a fast day—a reli
gious occasion for self-denial and humiliation.—
Such is not the design. It is a feast day—a
% of rejoicing and thankfulness for the many
blessings we enjoy. The custom of appointing
Thanksgiving Day was an early New England
one, and spread" oyer the other States. The first
Thanksgiving day in Pennsylvania was appoint
'd by the beloved and lamented Governor Sbunk.
&>w it is a regular institution of the State, al
®oBt universally observed by oar people. Ar
rangements having been made , the different con
pegations of this place will .meet at the Pres
byterian Church at IQ} o’clock, A. M , where
»n address appropriate to the occasion will be
delivered. The pnblio schools will meet at the
Methodist church in the afternoon for the pur
pose of hearing an address. •

Warty all the respired and perspired gasses in

purer, bat the water utterly filthy. The colder
***• water is, the greater its capacity to contain
these gaasea. At ordinary temperatures a pint
water will contain a pint of carbonic acid
P>. and several pints of ammonia. (This cnpa
city is nearly doubled by redncing the water to
the temperature of that of. ice* Hence water,;
kept in- the room awhile, is always unfit for
?cr .the same reason, the water in a pump

“ Extracts from the minutes ”
ggy If our patrons imagine that we are go
ing to take many excuses for not publishing a
paper last week, they are mistaken. Our only
excuse is that we hod a harvest of job work,
which pays better than printing a newspaper,
and which was of a kind that could not be de
layed. so we attended to it first. We, not our
subscribers, lose by laying our paper over a
week, qs we make up the year if it takes us
thirteen months to do it, consequently they
should not complain if we do uot; and
those only who have paid in advance have a
right to complain, aud to them we make this
To be ficwG.— Cathcart, convicted recently
in Clearfield county of murder in the first
degree, for killing his wife, was on Thurs

will probably recollect that this murder was
committed near Janesville, a few miles from this

decidedly against him. He alleges that he shot

Headache is also very common, being unusually distin
guished by the name of nervous headache, .sometimes com
ing on suddenly in a state of apimreiitl.v sound health and
prostrating at once the mental and physical energies, and
in oilier instances it comes on slowly, heralded by depres
sion of spirits or acerbity of temper. In most instances
the pain is in the front of the head over one or both eyes,
and sometimes provoking vomiting; under this class limy
be named Neuralgia*
For the treatment of either clnes of Headache the Cepha
lie Pills have been found a sure and safe remedy, relieving
the most acute pains in a few minutes, and by its subtle
.power eradicating thediseoses of which. Headache is the
"unerring index. ■
Bridget. —Missns wants you to send her a box of Cepha
lic Glue. no. a bottle of Prepared Pills, —hut I’m thinking
that's not just it uaitlier ; hut perhaps ye’ll be afthor know
ing what it is. Ye see she’s nigh dead and gone with the
Sick Headache, and wants some more of that same as re
iaired her before.
Druggist. —You must mean Spalding’s Cephalic Pills.
Bridget. —Och! sure now and you’ve sed it, here’s the
qaarther and give me the Pills and don’t be all day about
it aither.
Constipation of Gostivenesa.
No one of the ‘"many ills flesh is heir to” is so prevalent,
soliltlc understood, and so much neglected as Costiveness.
Often originating in carelessness, or sedentary habits; it is
regarged as a slight disorder of too little con-iquonce to
excite anxiety, while in reality it is the precursor and com
panion of many of the most fatal aud dangerous diseases;
aud unless tally eradicated it will bring the sufferer to an
untimely grave. Among the lighter evils of which coative
ncas is the usual attendant are lleahache. Colic. Rheuma
tism, Foul Breath, Files and others of like nature, while
a long train of frightful diseases such os Malignant Fevers,
Abcesscs, Dysentary. Diarrhoea, Dyspepsia, Apoplexy, Bpi-
Icysy, Faralvsis, Hysteria, Hypochondriasis. Mel.incholy
aiid Insanity, first indicate their presence ir the system by
this alarming symptom Not unfrcqueutly the diseases
named originate in Constipation, hut take on an indepen
dent existence unless the cause is eradicated in an early
stage. From ail these considerations it follows that the
disorder should receive immediate attention whenever it
occurs, and no person should neglect to get a box of Cepha
lic Fills on the first appearance of the complaint, as their
timaiy use will expel the insiduous approaches of disease
and destroy this dangerous foo to human life.
A Real Blessing.
Physician,— Well, Mrs. Jones, how is that headache ?
Mrs. Jones.—' Cone! Doctor, all gone! the pill you sent
cured mo in twenty minutes. 1 wish you would send
more so that I can have them handy.
Physician.—You can get them at any Druggist. Coll for
Cephalic Fills, I Cud they never foil, and 1 recommend
them in all cases of Headache.
Mrs. Jones. —I shall send for n box directly, and shall
tell all my suffering friends, for they ore a real blessing.
Twestt Miluoxs or Dollars Saved.—Mr. Spalding has
sold two millions of bottles of his celebrated Prepared (tine
and it is estimated that each bottle I saves at least ten dol
lars worth of broken furniture, thus making un aggregate
of twenty millions of dollars reclaimed from total loss by
this valuable,invention. Having made his dine a house
hole word, he now proposes to do the world still greater
service by curing all the aching heads with his Cephalic
Pills, and if they gre as good os his Glue, Headaches will
soon vanish away like snow in July.
jfcjf Over excitement, and the mental care and anxiety
incident to close attention to business nr study, are among
the numerous cases of Nervous Headache. The disordered
state of mind and body incident to this distressing com
jdaiut is a fatal blow to all energy and ami ition. Suffer
ers by this disorder can always obtain speedy relijf from
these distressing attacks by. uMng one of the Cephalic Pills
whenever the symptoms appejir. It quiets the overtasked
hraiu. and sooothes the strained and jarring nerfes. and re
laxes the tension of the stomach which always aecompa
uics and aggravates the disordered condition of th^fbraiu.
Fact Worth Ifxowiso.—Spalding’s Cephalic Pills are a
certain cure for Sick Headache, liilions Headache Nervous
Headache, Costiveuess aud General Debility.
Great Discovert. —Among the most Important of all the
great medical discoveries of this age may be considered the
system of vaccination for protection from Small Pox. the
Cephalic Pill for relief of Headache, and the use Quinine
for tliC prevention of Fevers, either of which is a sure spe
cific. whose benefits will be experienced by suffering hu
manity long after their discoverers are forgotten.
Did yon ever have the Sick Headache? Do you re
member the throbbing temples, the fevered brow, the
loathing and disgust at ihu sight of food. How totally un
fit yon were for pleasure, conversation or study. One of
the Cephalic Pills would have Relieved yon from ail the
suffering which you then experienced. For this and other
purpose you should always have a box of them on baud
to use as occasion requires.
Nervous Headache
'By the use of these Pills the periodic attack* of Nervous
or. tick Headache may be prevented; and ift, taken at the
commencement of an attack immediate relief from pain
and sickncSs will be obtained. '
'They seldom foil in removing too jVausea and Headache
to which females are So subject. -\
They act gently upon the bowels, —removing Cbsiioeness.
For Literary Men, Students, Delicate Female*, and all
persona of sedentary habits, they are valuable as a laxative,
imprjoving the appetite, giving tone and vigor to the diges
tive organa, and restoringtho natural elasticity and strength
of the whole system.
The CEPHALIC PILLS aro the result of long Investiga
tion and carefully conducted experiments, having-been in
use many years, daring which time' they haveprevented
andreliexod a vast amount of pain and 'suffering, from
Headache,'whether originating in the nervous system or

I beg leave to call the attention of: the citlzins of the
United States to the above Wines and Liquors. iwported by
UnuLPUO Wolfe, of New York, whose name is Cimillsr In
every part of this country for the purity of his celebrated
ScuicnsM.Scuits.FPs. Mr. Wolfe, in hjs letter'to me, speak
ing of thu purity of his Wines and Liquors, says: “t will
spike my reputation os a man, my standing as a merchant,
of thirty years’ residence in the city, of New York, that all
the Brandy and Wines which I bottle ire pure as imported,
and of the best quality, and can be relied upon by every
purchaser.” Every bottle has the proprietor’s name on fh*
wax, and a fac simile, of his signature of the certificate,—
The public are resiiectfhlly invited to call and examine for
themselves. For sale at Retail by all Apothecariesand
Grocers in Philadelphia.
Gums ell. Asutox, No. 832 Market St., Philo,
' Sole Agent for Philadelphia,
Rend the following from the New Yoik Courier:
Ksormocs Ucsixess for one New York Merchant, —We
are happy to inform' our fellow-citizens that there’s one
place in our -city where the physician, apothecary, and
country merchant, cm go and purchase pure Wines and
Liquors, ns pure as imported, and of the best quality. . We
do not intend to give an elaborate description of this mer
chant’s extensive business, although it. will well repay any
stranger or citizen to visit Udolpho Wolfe’s extensive ware
house, Nos. 18, 20 and 23, Beaver street, and Nos; 17,19
and 21, Marketflcld street. His stack of Scbnapps.on. hand
ready for shipment could not hayo been less than thirty
thousand cases; the Brandy,someten tliousandcases—Vin
tages of 1826 to 185(1; nud thousand cases of Madeira,
Sherry and Port Wine, Scotch and Irish Whiskey, Jamaica
and St. Croix Bum. some very old anft equal to any in this
country. He also had three largo cellars, filled with Bran
dy. Wine, Ac., in casks, under Custom-House key, ready for
brttling. Mr. Wolfe’s salesof Schnapps last year amounted
to one hundred mid eighty tliousand dozen, and we hope In
less thau two years lie may be equally successful with his
Brandies and Wines.
His business merits the patronage of every lover of his
species. - Private families wHo wish pure Wincsand Liquors
for medical use should send their orders direct to Mr. Wolfe,
until every Apothecary in the land make up their minds
to discard the poisonous stuff from their shelves, and re-'
place it with Wolfe’s pure Wines and Liquors. i
I We understand that Mr. Wulle. for the .accommodation
of small dealers in tile country, pnts up assorted cases of
Wines and Liquors Such a man, apd such a merchant,
should be sustained against bis tens of thousands of oppo
nents in the United States, who sell untiling but imitations,
ruinous alike to human health, and happiness.

vious to evcry roflecting mind, because as this season ad
vances {the merchants in the east say)prices decline,there
fore I advautage of ftom 20b> 25' per cent, over
those who purchased early intoo;soason, and I elniand
will sell cheaper than any other tujnsa in the place. 'Pur

amining my stock before buying elsewhere.' My stock
consists of all the newest styles oft
