Dchenck s Pulmonic byrup is nutneous as

Take the pills frequently, to cleanse the liver

not required, for sometimes in diarrkcea they
are necessary. The stomach must be kept
healthy, and an sppctite created to allow
the Pulmonic syrup to act on the respiratory

Then all that is required to perform a per

The other day I made a call,
As ladies sometimes do,
To hear the news my friends could tell,
And tell them what I knew;
And as we sat in social chat.
O'er steaming cups of tea,
"I don't know what we're coming to!"
Says Mrs. Smith, says she.
"They're making laws at such a rate,
It almost drives me wild ;
They do not care for God". I think,
For woman, man nor child.
They've forced the negroes in the cars.
Along with you and me ;
And who knows where they'll force them
Says Mrs. Smith, says fho.
"Tifir children are to go to school
Along with yours and mine,
And if we white folks should object,
Our rights we can resign.
All social lines must be removed
Because the blacks are free ;
Such thirgs are not to be endured,"
Says Mrs, Smith,- says she.
"And not content with all these gifts.
Bestowed with lavish hand,
The negroes must be fed anH clothed
Throughout tliG Southern land.
The taxes now are high enough,
But what they yet may be
'Tis not in human power to guess,"
Says Mrs. Smith, says she.

FJ0T GOOD EK0UGH FOR HER.
In tho Jays of the gcoJ colony of Vir
ginia, the distinction between rich nnd
poor was based upon laws which, liko those
of the Medea auJ Persians, altered not.
One of the laott devoted followers of this
code was a weahhy planter, living in what
lii known ns the; Northern Neck. lie was
in all respects a frank, open hearted, man
ly gentleman ; but his estimate cf his fei
low :aon was founded upon the principles
that governed the selections of his horses
blood. Wealth, too, was by no means
had our human weakness,
us, was influenced more than he believed
by pounds, shillings and pence.
This Mr. G had quite a larrrj fam
ily, and a;nciig them waa u daughter whose
beauty was the standing toast of the coun
try. She was just eighteen, and budding
into lovely womanhood. Not only was
she l?stutiful i person, but her amiable
disposition and many accomplish mint:
made her more than ordinarily attractive
and half the gentlemen cf the Xort!om
Neck were already sighing for her love

a 'Gung u.an who was navady rising high
in the t.-:eem of his neighbors. lie c
oi gcoa tamiiy, uat was, a.3 yet, a poor
young surveyor, who had taught himself
Lis profession, and who had spent much
oi his time m traveling unknown forest
with nothing but his compass for his guide,
and his chain for his companion, locating
lands and settling disputed titles. II
was a model of manly beauty, and excell
ed in the varied feats of strength in which
the olden time Americans took such pride
He was calm aud reserved, and there was
about him a dignified sweetness of de
meanor that accorded well with his frank
iudepender.ee of character. He was
jreat favorite with all who knew Lim, ant
there was no garnering to vvhicn he was
Mr. G scemf J especially to like
tho young man, and it was not long before
he insisted that the latter should abaudon
all ceremony in his visits to him, and come
and go when he pleased. The invitation
was heartily given, and as promptly ac
cepted. The young man liked the plan
ter, and he found the society of the beauti
ful Mary G a very strong attraction.
The result was that he was frequently at
the planter's residence ; so frequently, in
deed, that Mrs. G felt called upon to
ask her husband if he did not think it
wrong to permit him to enjoy such unre
served intercourse with their daughter.
The father only laughed at the idea, aud
said he hoped his daughter knew her po
sition too well to allow anything like love
for a poor surveyor to blind her to her
duly to her family.
Nevertheless Mary G was not so
fully impressed with this conviction of
duty a3 was her father. She found more
to admire in the poor surveyor than in
all her wealthy and aristocratic suitors,
and almost before she knew it her heart
passed out of her keeping and was given
to him. She loved him with all the hon
esty and devotion of her pure heart ; and
she would have thought it happiness to go
out with him into the backwoods and slmre
his fatigues and troubles, no matter how
much sorrow they might bring to her.
Nor did she love in vain. Tho young
man, whose knowledge of the world was
afterwards so great, had not then learned
to consieh-r as binding the distinctions
which society drew between his position
and that of the lady. He knew that in
all that makes a man, he was the equal
oi any one, lie believed that, except in
wealth, he flood on a perfect equality
with Mary G , and he loved her hon-
cstly and manfully, and no sooner had ho
satisfied himself upon the state of his own
feelings than he confessed his devotion,
Arr.tfij nnl trr.thfully, and received from
tho lady's lips the assurance that she
loved him4 very clearly. .
Scorning to occupy a doubtful position,
or to cause the lady to conceal aught from
her parents, the young man frankly and
manfully asked Mr. G . for his daugh
ter's hand. Very angry grew tho planter
as he listened to the audacious proposal.
le stormed and Ewore tunously, and de
nounced the young man as r.h ungrateful

"My daughter has always been accus
tomed to riding in her own carriage," he
said. "Who are you, sir?"
"A gentleman, sir," replied the young
man quietly ; and he left the house.
"The lovers were parted. The lady
married soon after a wealthy planter, and
the young man went cut again into the

but although ho afterwards married a wo

Time passed on, and the young man
began to reap the reward of his labors.
le had never been to the house of Mr.
G since his cruel repulse by the plan
ter ; but the latter could not forget him,
as his name soon became familiar in every

losition from which he could look elowu

vw.il Oi liiO .i!:Ctil.Si.ll U'.i-
cuc, at ji:u!..;u e.:y, tavs : romantic
incident occurred here last week", which
has thus be-cn related to me : A young
man from Philadelphia lost his heart to a
pieity girl from that city, whose father
was president cf a prominent bank there,
and very wealthy. He was a salaried
clerk, though of very good family, and
was unwilling, on account of his poverty,
to-propose marriage, even tlijugh he had
reason to believe his passion was returned.
He made his confession, it seems, to one
of his friends, and the story of his modesty
and pride reached the young lady's ears,
and touched her, very naturally.
A few weeks after the fair I'hiladel
phian was driving on the beach alone,
w hen her horse became frighteued at the
surf and ran oil at a furious pace. She
lost all control of the terrified animal,
which had ran at least two miles, when
the enamored swain, exactly as it happens
in romances, chanced to be walking by
the border of the sounding main, as Ho
mer would put it, thinking of the cheerless
future without the idol of his scul (for
further ccphomorical phraseology, see Syl
van us Cobb, Jr.) Ju a few moments he
held the horse's head; "was dragged a few
hundred yards be fort he could check the
animal's course, and then fnatched the
half fainting girl from the vehicle. Once
in his arms she fainted wholiy, cf course.
He held her in his embrace until she re
covered. She murmered her gratitude ;
he his passion, and they walked to the
hotel with rosy blushes all over their faces.
lhat night the wealthy father heard of
his daughter's rescue, and, after talking
with her, discovered that she loved the
fellow. The following morning he sent
tor the clerk, and discovered the follow
loved the girl
"Why the devil didn't you propose lo
her ! How was she or 1 to know any
thing of the state of your heart unless you
told her about it ? You didn't expect a
pretty woman with $200,000 in her own
right to run about with her love in her
hand, asking handsome scape-graces like
yourself to take it, did ou "
"I knew, sir, lhat I was very poor, and
you very rich ; that it was not probable
that you would "
"Nonsense ! I don't want my daugh
ter to marry a bank account. My own
is high enough for her. You arc worthy ;
and if you lovo her, go nnd tell her so,
and let mo hear no more Etuff about pov
erty and wealth."
The young man went, r.nd I presume
tne two came to an understanding, ns I am
J informed they are to be married tho first
woek in November.
The narrative is not a whit orinnal or
new, except in the f.sct thit the pater fa-
miliar hs sense enough to prefer his
daughter's happiness to enperfluoua richc.
I would like to give his name for the. bene
fit of example. I can't, of coarse ; though
I may say if you rend tho Bign No.
Third street, Philadelphia, yoa will learn
who the wise CrcestLs is.
- One of the generals of the 'Lost Cause"
relates the following- in th Boston Cem
mtrcial Bulletin :
There was a little Frenchman in New
Orleans who applied to a Southern official
for a berth for his son, a short tima ago.
ThinkiDg to curry favor with this party,
who was "natiye and ti the manor born,"
"My lcotla boy (aged 33) is tcrc emart
man, vcre good man, good Southern man,
r.nd brave plus bravo ; yes, Bare, he has
"Indeed," said the official, "I do not
seem to recall your name in the army liet.
What actions was your son engaged in ?
Where did ho display such undaunted
"All te time tat General Eutlare ci3 ka c
he slay riyhl still in New Orleans, uukr hin
note, cui-d iivarc mere."
1 4 is perhaps unnecessary to say that
the official could not appreciate the merits
of the "Child of France," and monsieur
retired, Padiy disappointed.
Another iilustration of this kintl occur
red in the person of a mate of the Missis
sippi boat, that we had converted into a
cottonchul for tho attack on Fort Pillow.
This follow was a big, ebublc-flsted sam
ple of a river bully, "full of . "trance oaths,"
and always enforcing his orders by knock
ing men about tuo head. Just be ft
went into the light he cr.mc swaggering up
to me nnd said
"Waal, giuerdl, I suppose- when cue
side or tether's licked, you big mcn'il quit
and shake hands !"
"Yog, Jim," said I; "when tho fight
ing ia over I expect every man to go homo
and attend to his business."
"That ain't me," raid Jim, smiling his
left palm with a fist like a sledge hammer,
"fur cf ever 1 ketch a Yank agin touth of
Cairo, l'iu agoin to mash him."
A ten inch shell lhat came whistling
over the boat interrupted any farther re
mark just then, and shortly p.ftcr we were
bultiiig away at the Federal boats, is and
about a hot a firo ns I ever want to see.
I should think there was a hundred grins
opened -en u, and we got one broadside
o near that the fl ?h c f their guns set our
coUon bales on fire. Oar people foug,ht
weil, but the other side were too strong
for us, ar.d we had to dropdown the river.
During the action, while cnraion were
roaring, boats t'u.king, shells shrieking and
bursting all around, and tho air filled with
ilame hiil smoke, I quita lost right of Jiui,
but after ve ha 1 dropped down tho ri.er,
out ot fire -aniatl hands were busy re-
pairing damages, that valiant hero crept
out from behind a cotton tale, and sneak

A U. S. Soldier Faijjs Heiu to a
Scotch Bakosctcv. A romantic lillle
incident has just come to light. The facts
are given thus: Two years ago Hugh
Crawford Pollock, a young gentleman
then about twenty years old, suddenly dis
appeared from his home in Scotland, much
to the elismay of his rolativce and acquaint
ances. It subsequently bseame known
that he hael come to thi3 country with five
hundred pounds in his pocket. He sport
ed about New York and other cities until
his funds commenced to run short, when,
in a fit of desperation, he enlisted in the
5th United States cavalry a3 a private
soldier, and m this humble capacity strug
glel against hardships and deprivations to
which he had been wholly unusod. In
the meantime his father elied some four
mouths ago, leaving Hugh heir to a baro
netcy and a snug little income of 5,000
per annum, or about 25,000 in gold.
The young baronet was duly sought for,
and, after an expenditure of 5800 in ad
vertisements, it was ascertained that he
was stationed at Camp Ycrde, Texas,
discharging the duties of a farrier. Col.
William S. 11 illy er, of New York, who
became interested in the case, induced Sir
Frederick Bruce to procure the discharge
of Pollock, which was promptly acceded
to by General Grant. The young Sir
Hugh Crawforel Pollock has, therefore,
been telegraphed for, and has given unthe
occupation of shocr and curcr of horses to
enter upon a Scotch baronetcy and jC5,
000 a year. Such is life.
