MEDICINES.—WiII people never learn to know that a
diseased liver rind stomach necessarily dieeaee the entire
syetem t The plainest principles of common sees° teach
this and yet there are hundreds who ridicule the Id, a,
and continue in the course which almost inevitably
brings them prematurely to the grave. Living as the
mejority of the people do, at complete variauce with tho
law* of nature, it must bo apparent to till that ' sooner or
later, nature will revenge herself. Hence we find that
poroone who Indulge to excess in the use of very rich or
Indineetible food or Intoxicating drinks, invariably pay
a heavy penalty In the end. The stomach becomes die-
ordered and reruns to act: the liver I ails to perform its
function., dd spepsla and its attendant evils follow, and
still the suffering individuals persist In clinging to the
thoroughly exploded idea of the poet. Dr. SCHENK'S
medicines are recommended to all ...It. They bring aura
and certain relief wherever they are used as directed,
and all that is necessary to establish thoir reputation
with every ailing nine or woman in the landis a fair and
impartial trial of them. Let those who are skeptical on
thie point, and who have permitted interested persons to
prejudice them tinniest these now celebrated remedies for
consumption, discard their prejudices, and be governed
by the principles of reason and common mem. ,df the
system is disordered depend upon it, In nine cases out of
ten the seat of the disorder will tea found in the stomach

It may be /eked by those who are not familiar with
the virtues of these great romedieo,“llow do Dr. fichenek's
medicines effect their wonderful cures of consumption 1"
The answer is a simple one. They begin their work
of restoration by bringing the stomach, liver and bowels

Our Duty and Destiny as a Nation.
BY H. C. B.
Then there is intemperance, an evil
of such magnitude as to threaten the
very existence of our civil institutions,
and if something can not bo done to
arrest its progress, our progress as a
nation must and will be arrested. Now
the question is frequently asked, how
shall we avert the pending danger
with'wbich our loved institutions are
threatened by such gigantic evils ? If
the majority of 'our people were all
prompted by tho pure spirit of the
Gospel, not only tho great evils wo
have enumerated, but all others, would
melt away, under 'its genial light and
heat. Ilia stall is not the fact; nor
does history leave a record of any na
tion of whom it might be said the ma
jority Were good, and though we hope
to be, we can not yet claim for a ma
jority that disinterested goodness
which would secure 'a faultless admin
istration of our civil institutions. But
fallen and depraved though we are,
there is no ground for despair, when
we• see that the God of Providence
has, in all ages, governed the human
family outside his church by principles
of our nature, such as self love, self-es
teem, ambition,avarice ' cowardice, &c.;
and it often happens that a corrupt in
dividual is not as bad a citizen when
governed by two bad principles in an
tagonism as when moved by ono of
them. Thus the God of Providence as
well as of grace always acts upon man
agreeably to the laws of mind, by the
presentation of motives adapted to the
end in view; and were it not so, the
human family, in their unrestrained
Maddess and • folly, would rush into,
eniversal destruction, and leave, our
planet, to revolve in space a depopule
ted desert. But when the avaricious
man coudtathe costs of criminal courts,
prison's and penitentiaries, which re
sults from strong drink, he may from
motives of self interest join in the sup
pression of the, traffic. When the cow
ard looks upon intemperance as an on
only to his peace, and in view, of his
own weakness, may join in removing
the insidious temptation out of his
way. The ambitious man .will join
handsavith that respectable part of the
community, who aro earnestly laboring
for the suppression of drunkenness in
the land. But - the christian is bound
from motives of a higher order to labor
earnestly for not only the suppression
of drunkenness but for that of all crime,
and thus from divers motives,' men
may be brought to harmOnious action.
The grand difficulty is to concen
trate action prompted by such count
less motives and bring them to bear
against threatened danger from any
quarter. We deem this difficult though
it may appear quite possible. When
any evil rises to great magnitude and
threatens the self-interest of all, all, or
a majority, aided by motives of bene
volence, may so far unite as to crush
out that particular evil. Thus slavery
was planted upon otir southern coast
by foreign enemies to humanity and
to our peace, and not until the evil
had grown to alarming magnitude and
had become so insatiable and exorbi•
tent in its demands as to rouse our na
tion from its lethargy, and prompted
from divers motives, with a united
power seldom equaled, the cruel insti
tution was crushed out forever, and
our national' disgrace was washed away
by the blood of hundreds of thousands
of the truest patriots that over faced
death for the extension of human lib
erty. But our success would have
been impossible had not old party lines
been merged in that powerful current
of patriotism which seldom fails to con
quer false antagonism. •
And now, if we would save our be
loved country from disgrace and ruin,
we must again lay aside those old par
ty names, too often employed to de
ceive the unwary, select the most dan
gerous evil, present all lawful motives
to the diversifild faculties and princi
plea of human nature, concentrate all
our powers in untiring efforts, and that
evil must, under the smiles of Provi
dence, fall before such irresistible pow
er, and every other moral evil must
grow weaker before such a healthy in
fluence; and each of our great national
enemies shall be rooted out one after
another, - and our inestimable rights
and privileges shall be secured, and
handed down, pure and uncorrupted,
to the latest generation, a beaCon light
to benighted nations, regardless of the
dying groans of tyrants. ,
Whilst it is our duty to declare
ceaseless war against all insidious and
open enemies of our race and our coun
try, the question may be asked :
Against which of them shall we con
centrate onr united force, in order to
crush it out forever, and remove it out
of our way, in order that we strike
down other evils in succeseion,and free
OUT land, the last hope of the world,
from the cruel bondage with which it
is threatened ? Now, was it our prov
ince to answer this momentous ques
tion, we would direct all your forces
against Intemperance, because it is at
open war upon us; it is already per
meating society ip all its ramifications
with its insidious poison ; it is oven
now carrying thousands annually down
to untimely graves, and demands the
immediate attention of patriots, phil
anthropists and christians. Your cor
respondent has been in this battle-field
for over half a century; for many
years after he had declared open war
against this monster of iniquity he was
left to battle alone for the principle of
entire abstinence. Subsequently, as
sociated with a few choice spirits, he
has f9pght for the suppression ofdrun
kennese pill his weapons of warfare aro
all either kreken or nearly worn out,
and he must soon leave tho field and
the good cause in stronger hands, un
der tbe'direction of a wise and benev
olent Providence. And on'leaving the
field, he 'would not weary you with the
appalling statistics which truth would
justify. You know froin high official
authority that in a single year [lB6B]
more money was spent,in the, United
States fur strong drink than would pay
half of our National debt. You know
that in but a few pest years more hu
man life was destroyed by strong drink
than by the late cruel war. You know
that more widows and orphans have
been made such by intemperance than
by war, famine and pestilence alto
gether. And you all know who have
attended to the records of criminal
courts; prisons and penitentiaries; that
Millions of your hard-darned money
have been spent in defense of the peace
of society against the appalling effects
of drunkenness; nod doubtless many
of you have trembled in 'the hearing of
the threats and profane, imprecations
of the poor maniacs, made such by
strong drink, as well as that corrupt
self-interest by which a' few aro
prompted to poison the morals of our
community for sake of gain. Wo Must
present such a united front as will se
cure success, or all is forever lost, and
we are doomed to listen to the death
knell of our loved institutions, and
weep over the last hope of poor, trod
den down humanity.
There stands,
unmolested, distilleries
by perjury and fraud cheating our go
vernment annually out of hundreds of
thousands of dollars, darkening the
very heavens with their smoke, spread
ing over the land thick clouds of moral
darkness, daring the thunders,of Di
vise justice to shiver to fragments our
glorious institutions, and roll us back
into anarchy, with all its horrors.—
They are still sending forth ten thous
and streams of liquid death, poisoning
the heart's blood of the nation, and
spreadine• b over the land a moral virus,
which threatens the very bases of our
free institutions. Shall we fold our
arms in apathetic sluggishness in pre
sence of such portentous danger, now
threatening our children and our
Yonder yon see our gin palaces and
dens of moral putrescense, scattered
thickly over town and country, in the
enjoyment of undisturbed legal rights
to kill and destroy an indefinite num
ber of their fellow-citizens annually, if,
like young Spartan thieves,
they can
do it without detection. You may
hare seen those sinks et iniquity dis
gorging themselves of their motley
contents, in order that they may have
a free fight upon our streets, whore
more • like dogs than rational beings,.
you may eco them parting, ono with a
brokon arm, another with an eye
gouged out, another with his nose bit
ten off, most of them maimed and
bleeding, and yonder n poor, old nuiti
staggering home, his tongue vibrating
only because it was accustomed to vi
brate in idiotic accents; and there goes
another, flying in all the horrors of
mania potu, screaming and flying as
he believes from serpents, hobgoblins
and demons, to drive a trembling wife
and children from their humble dwell
ingplace to take refuge for the night
under the broad canopy of heaven.
"'Tie here they learn

Shakes her encumbered lap and casts them cut."
But if you desire a condensed view
of the baleful results of our cruel li
cense system, follow that poor,deluded
criminal into court, hear the witness
and his final sentence, and ask your
selves if you are innocent of one of the
cruelest murders upon criminal record
The court is called, the prisoner is
brought,and the in, a jury is called,
trial commenced. The prisoner, a tall,
fine looking man, except those min
gled feelings of guilt and despair be
trayed by his countenance.
First witness, 14,. A—, the land
lord, (an appropriate title,)—a large,
portly and pompous man, with heavy
gold chain and a number of large rings
of the same metal upon his fingers—
sworn and examined. flow long have
you known the prisoner at the bar r
About fifteen years. Ile was when
I first know bim a very sober and re
spectable man; he owned a good farm;
the farm is now mine. The prisoner
is very pour and a confirmed drunk
ard. For several years he was seldom
at my house; his visits became more
frequent, and lately ho would lie out
whole nights. I sold liquor to him as
long as be had money; it is not six
months since ho drank the last of his
farm; ho still came frequently and
would got drunk somehow with his
former companions. The last time he
was there his wife came for him and
entreated him to go home; she said
their children were crying for some
thing to eat and there was not at bite
of anything for them; he cursed her
and her "brats;" she wept bitterly and
cried for God to have mercy upon
them. lie staggered to the stove,
seized the poker, struck her upon the
head, broke her skull, and she fell dead
upon the floor. Two of those jurors
and two of those witnesses signed my
certificate for tavern license; 1 sell
liquor by law, as authorized by your
Second witness, the landlord's son
examined. I am eighteen years old;
I attend bar for my father; I never
sell liquor to drunkards after their mo
ney is spent, nor after they are dead
drunk; no, I never sell liquor to mi
nors who have no means to pay for it;
I never sell on Sunday to any persons
who would expose us; I was never so
Ungallant as to refuse liquor to females
who could pay for it. 0 yes, 1 sold
more liquor to the prisoner than to
any other person because he had mo
ney plenty. Well, the way he got mo•
ney was this; to make it convenient,
my father would lend him a hundred
(!:i.: . '....',.qtirliv
dollars at a time and take his note
from time to time, and in thiS way we
got his farm. I saw the prisoner strike
his wife with the poker, I saw her fad .,
dead upon the floor. They bad six
children; they are all now in the poor
Third witness, with his-arm
in a sling, examined. 0 yes, I knOw
the prisoner, well enough; I guess you
would know.liim too,,if he had broken
your arm. Yes, I seen him kill his
wife, that I did, and be struck her
mighty ,hurd. p yes, ho and me often
drunk together till it was late; ho was
a right jolly follow when ho got uride'r
way. Yes, I did, sign Mr.. A's certifi
cate for tavorn license and I would do
so again ; two of, thorn jurors did
too; you know all who sign such pa.;
pens are recognized by;this court :al
respectable citizens. Yes, Mr. A. give
us not only ono drink for signing, but
as much us wo could hold till midnight,
and I never had a finer jollification in
all my

jurors were there as full of fun as any
of us, and one of them judges, too, as
jolly a fellow as over you saw. NO,

my own property and 1 had a right to
do what I pleased with them., lam

my fine property; if I chose to spend
it in a short and merry life what is
that to you. You have no business to
ask how many drinks I took to day; I
will drink just as much as I please,
and I never will, like temperance fools,
sign away my right to drink when 1
please. Yes, I did sign Mr. A's certi
ficate for license and I will do itagain;.
ho is a real clever fellow, and he gave
us as fine a jollification for doing so as
ever you saw: No, Bill did not knock
me clown, but I knocked C. under the
table, where ho lay snoring like a hog
till morning.
Fifth witness came staggering into
court, slip shod, clothed in the habili
ments of. wretchedness, smeared with
blood, and holding by a post, ho said :
I guess I come from Mr. A's tavern
this morning. I guess I took a little
of the o-be joyful just to cl-clear my i

prkotter. The jury after retiring
short time brought in a verdict of
guilty of murder in the first degree.
The prisoner was commanded to
stand up and giro reasons, if ho had
any, why sentence of death should not
be pronounced against him.
He rose. The fountain of tears was
dried up, his breast heaved as if too
contracted for the swelling of a break
ing heart, and said, he had no reasons
to give, for though convicted by the
testimony of witnesses of the most itn•
pure lips, I am guilty of the cruel mur
der of one of the most lovely wives. I
drew her out of an affectionate moth
er's bosom, and from under the protec
tion of an indulgent father. She was
fairer and More lovely in fact than 'Ve
nus in fable. I vowed in the presence
of God at the hymonial altar, that 1
would cherish and protect her in sick
ness and in health till separated by
death. Ours was a sweet homo, ren
dered still more sweet and joyful by
those dear pledges of conjugal affec
tion, with which our board was sur
rounded, who cheered us with music
more sweet than that of all the birds
of the forest. Thus our nights and
days were spent for years in lovely ac•
cord, until, whilst going right on my
way, I was lured into that don of de
mons incarnate, by that cruel monster,
the landlord, (perverted epithet,) who
has born testimony against me. His
insidious snare was so artfully laid and
his machinery so seductive that I fell,
step by step, and at every step losing
part of my power of resistance, till all
was gone, and until he had by fraud
and falsehood filched from me the last
dollar, beggared my family, maddened
my brain, and prepared me for the
consummation of crime—the murder
of pocir Sarah. Her head an over
flowing fountain of tears, her tender
hand upon my shoulder, and the last
prayer to God for her cruel husband
upon her lips, when, alas, prompted by
surrounding demons, I struck the fatal
blow. And now,o wretched man that

The Wrong Man Poultioed.
The following,story, which we do
not remember to have seen in print,
may be old, but it, is received as true :
At a famous and fashionable water
ing-place, a gentleman one night was
suddenly seized in bed with an excru
ciating pain in the stomach, which nei
ther brandy, No. 6, nor any other,
remedy could remove. His wife, after
trying a number of,things in ,vain,and
having exhausted all her stock of rem
edies,left her husband's bedside for the
purpose of getting a 'warm application.
Guided 'oir he • return by a light which
she saw shining in a chamber, and
which she supposed was the one just
left, she softly entered, and was not a
little surprised to find her patient ap,
parontly in a deep slumber. However,'
thinking he might still be suffering,sho

laid the scalding poultice upon a stom

body of the person, than.ho, greatly a-,

bed, ho made for the door, and,rushint
down stairs, deelared,in a frenzy of ex
citement. that some one had poured a
shovel of hot coals upon him. The
woman, overcome with excitement
and alarm, gave a frantic scream,
which brought her husband hurriedly
in from the next room to her rescue.
The husband was so much excited,and
also so much amused with the singular
mistake and-the ridiculous position of
his better half, that ho forgot all his
pains ; but early next morning be, his
