' MEDICINES.—WiII people never learn to know that a

value. Thousands upon thousands of boxes are Bold daily.
Why ? Simply because they act promptly and efficiently

SCHENCK in person are informed that full and com
plete dirt diens for use accompany each package of the
WEED TONlC.—These medicines will cure couramptlon
unless the longs are so far gone that the patient is entire
ly beyond the reach of medical relief.
It may be asked by those who are not familiar with
the virtues of these great remeilies,ollow &Bona's
medicines effect their wonderful cures of consumption ?"
The answer le a simple one. They begin their. work
of restoration by bringing the stomach, liver and bowels
into au active healthy condition. It Is food that cures
this formidable disease. SCHENCK'S MANDRAKE
PILLS act on the liver and stomach. promoting •healthy
aecretlon,and removing the bile and slime which have
resultid from the inactive or torpid conditioned' those or
gas., and of the entail generally. This ainggiah state
of the body, and the conaequentaccumulation of the un
healthy eubstances named prevent the proper digestion
of foal, and, as a natural consequence createe disease,
which results in prostration and finally in death.
IC, when taken regularly, mingle with the food, and the
digestive organ; make good and rich blood. and ea a nat
ural consequence, give Rosh and strength to the patient.
Let the faculty say what it may, this is the only true
cure for consumption. Experience has proved beyond
the shadow of a doubt, and thousands are today alive
and well who a few, years since were regarded as hope
leas cases, but who were induced to try Dr. SCHENCK'S
remedied, and were metered to permanent health by
their use.
One of thelirst at r eps the physician should take with
a cousumpth e patient is to imigorrte the system. Now
how is this to be done ? Certainly not by giving me&
clues that rethauat and enervate—mediciues that impair
instead of Improve the functions of the digestive organs
Doctor SCHENCK'S medicines cleanse the stomach and
bowels of all substances which are calculated to irritate
or weaken them. They create_en appetite—promote

impoasible to bring a patknt to title tend Rion so long as
the Hear is burdened with diseased bile, and the stomach

Almost the first rerotent made to the physician by a
COLIIIIMptiVEI patient le that he will prescribe medicines
that will Missy tho cough, night sweats and chills, which
are the sure attendante on consumption. But this ehouid

There is, after all, nothing like facts which to nuboten•

relies. Nearly all xio have token his medicines in no

A youth and maid, one winter night,
Were sitting in the corner;
His name, we're told, was Joshua White,
And here was Patience Warner.
Not much the pretty maiden said,
Beside the young man sitting ;
Her cheeks were flushed a rosy red,
Her eyes bent on her knitting.
Nor could he guess what thoughts of him
Wore to her bosom flocking,
As her fair fingers, swift and slim,
Flew round and round the stocking.
While as for Joshua, bashful youth,
His words grew few and fewer ;
Though all the time, to tell the truth,
His chair edged nearer to her.
Meantime the ball_ef yernfgave out, 'l'
She knit so fast and steady,
'And ha'-tnUat give hie aid, doubt,

"Have Patience !?". cried the artless maid,
To him whp•her uesisted.
Good chance was that for tongue-tied .churl,
To shorten all palaver ;
"Have Patience I'•' cried he, "dearest girl
And may I really have her ?"
The dee'd was done ; no more that night,
Clicked needles in the corner;
And she is Mrs. Joshua White
That once was Patience Waym.

The parting injunction of many of

to write to every one separately, I

and, .yet I see no care-worn faces.—
They do a great 'deal in a short time;.
not, a moment is lost. This prompt.
ness, this punctuality—without hurry
—takes away much of the weariness
of labor. I have not yet seen a Yan

enjoy a joke and make one. 'Tie their
activity, genial nature and love of fun
that scatters little flower-wreaths eve
rywhere along the "rugged and jutted
highway of action, and brightens the
sombre woof of duty with dimples of
sunshine. Now, no ono loves the old
Keystone State bettor than I, and I
don't believe I shall ever love any oth
er place so well, but I don't think the
people here got so tired as we do—tired
mentally and physically, and I think
the charm is in their doing - a thing at
once, and their strict attention to or
der. It is not to-morrow with them,
it is now. By this indefatigable Yan
kee promptness, they manage to get
things done with less worry, less hur
ry, and more thoroughly done. All
through the country one sees an air
of neatness in the arrangement of
grounds and architecture; but' see no
beautiful fields stretching out for miles
as Ido at home. No wealth of golden
grain bonding down before the rich
sunlight. The tillage of the ground is
not the work for these people; their
genius, talents and propensities call for
other avocations and resources, of
which the country ie prolific. But I
do not intend to contrast the customs
and character of these people with
those of our own. I waet to tell you
of Music Vale.
It is a -most , delightful driv,e .9fmley
en miles from Norwich to the Vale.—
The road is bordered on cithereide 'by
the most picturesque scenery, which is
but a faint promise of the,beauty of
the fairy realm to which it lead's. We
arrived at the Vale at a moment that
greatly enhanced the beauty of the
scene. The royal, golden gleams of
the setting sun throw such a halo of
sheeny splendor over the vision, that
I silently exclaimed, "The half was not
told me !" On first seeing this Eden,
the delicious feeling of freedom and
rest cannot be described. The very
air imparts new life, vigor and energy;
we say at once, "Amid the beauty, the
sweetness, the freshness of this retreat,
we shall be happy !" It seems as
though it wore a sort -of realm of. its
own, pendant midway of Celestian and
Terrestia, surrounded by music, poet
ry and flowers, and we thought we
saw everywhere a "Welcome to Music
Vale !"
Then followed our introductions to
the Professor. Was ever a being so
much surprised ? We have ever had
but one type of a Professor in cur
mind's eye : tall, gaunt, stern, cold and
repelling; a man to fear alone. But
our Professor is none such. .Not tall,
rather corpulent, past threescore, yet
retaining to a marvelous degree ,the
activity, the bouyancy, the enthusiasm
of youth. A genial face that lights up
with the sunniest smile, and possessing
an' inexhaustible fund of good humor!
with a heart of kindness and goodness
for his pupils, eager and anxious to
promote their happiness; honest and
earnest in his efforts at teaching, and
having them thoroughly taught. He
has the faculty of commanding the
most profound respect towards him
self, and the most perfect obedience to
rules, yet without wearing that habit
ual look of sternness that Professors
generally do. Strict! You have no
idea what Yankee strictness means!
There is no shirking the rules, as we
can do in some schools, One may just
as well fall pleasantly and quietly. into
the lino, for recaleitration is surely
followed by expulsion from the Garden
of Eden. Harmony, Order and Obe
dience is the law. ' The Faculty being
abundantly blest with this world's
goods, tench not 69 much for the pecu
niary compensation as from their de.
votion to the art, and the desire to int-

Music) Vale:
part to others the thorough knowledge
of music they possess, so that the pu
pils in their turn may be competent to
teach, .and thus perpetuate the advao•
tages peculiar to this Institution.
A wilder, more romantic site for a
Seminary cannot be conceived than
this. Circled by dark woods, rocks,
fairy cascades, exquisite lakes, lovely
brooks, ferns, mosses, and flowers; and
on Saturday afternoon and Sabbath it,
is so quiet, so calm, so dreamlike ' that
one loses their sense of the real, and
lives only the soul-life, forgetting that
the clamor and din of the' world's war
fare still goes 'on. But this dream is
short: Monday morning the untiring'
gong wakes us to duty mid action, and
it is action . spre ! pour hours per day
for Piano practice, twofer Guitar, one
for Theory, one for Rehearsal, and one
for Thorough-bass: Think of that, ye
idlers of time! And yet we have time,
for recreation. "How do we manage?"•
Why, simply, we must: b'e' on hand
the moment 'tihe gong: of the Veil
is heard ; wo dare not „delay. Af
ter all, this is the secret of suc
cess. 'How' much one can crowd in
a day if a certain amount of , Itinie is
given to each task !
The building is large, neat,, and bus,
al! the modern conveniences; can ae,-;
commodate a great number of pupils.
The ground is adorned • with all that
is tasteful and pleasing, and provided
with means for recreation,; in a word,
Music . Vale is a home, where we find
so much happiness and so much to do
that we cannot regret the dear homes
left behind, as we have done at some
schools. • .
Examination was held the 23d of
June. Of course everybody was here.
We being a novice had nothing•to do
but enjoy ourself. A committee of
men—the best judges •of music—are
always appointed to criticise.- We
wish you could have seen the fair in
mates of Music Yule—lovely and eager
with enthusiasm—who ,pro so thor
oughly trained us to play before a crit
ical audience without the least embar
• • The German method; is taught, and
of course is different from' the style of
playing elsewhere. It is an independ
out action of the fingers. The power
given to the performance is duo alone
to the action of the fingerskno strength
is derived froth the arm. Great atten•
lion is paid to fingering, and the posi
tion of the body. One wonders how
it is possible fur delicate females and
children to acquire sufficient strength
in ,the fingers alone, to execute that
which they do with such perfect ease
add freedom. How awkward and in•
elegant the violent motion of • the arm
and body we see everywhere else, com
pared with the graceful, bird=like
movement of the fingers here; which
must be acquired. Well I cannot toll
you all about Examination. My letter
is growiag too lengthy. Suffice to say
all enjoyed it, and the day's exercises
ended with a superb supper at 2 A. st.
"Did we have any flirtations ?" Not
much ! A seraglio is not more care
fully guarded than we. ‘Ve had the
pleasure of gazing at the handsome fa
ces of the youth, but we didn't,care to
converse. We can endure this for a
year, considering the musical knowl•
edge we get, instead of smiles and
bows and "words lighter than thistle
Now let me say to all who desire a
musical education, come to Music
For the study of Theory and
Vocal Music alone, it is worth a year
of time and money. Music is taught,
and not a smattering of it. Many
young ladies that are taughtelsewhere
can dash off a great many brilliant pie
ces, and impress those who are not so
critical with the idea.that they know
a great deal, when really their knowl
edge is superficial, and they know 110-
thing of Theory and the elementary
rules. .Here it is,not so much in the
number of pieces we can execute,, at
the close of the term, but to do what
we do, well; to pay„the strictest regard
to the keeping of time, to possess a
thorough knowledge of the theory, as
well as to execute it Thus the foun
dation is laid to a sure suecess,land
the pupil is competent to teach any
where, as 'well as to progress herself.
Then again I say, if l you desire a thor
ough musical education, if you want a
home surrounded by the purest and
sweetest influences, if you want to re
vel in the midst of the most enchant
ing scenery—then come to Music "Vale.

A .711oTulia's GlFT.—There i 8 some
thing sublime associated with the
most insignificant gift or token that
a mother may present her child. The
gift may bo 50010 almost valueless
texture—worthless to him who knows
not its history—but the one for whom
it was intended sees in it a remem
brance of olden times, wanders back
to the theatre 'of little incidents in
earlier days, and by the memento is
reminded of blissful recollections which
even adversity has been unable to
erase from his mental tablet. The
boy too often forgets the parent who
adores him; his ambition leads him
away from the fond maternal thoughts
that should ever be his brightest im
ageries. With the mother the case
is widely dissimilar; her thoughts are
ever with the wandering one; her
greatest aspirations in reality her on
ly ones in many cases, aro coupled
with the name and career of her boy.-
No chill, save that of death, can ever
congeal the transparent fount from
which a mother's adoration flows on
to gladden her child. No mandato
but God's—and-ho never issued an un
natural One—can.still the restless af
fections that nestle Around _a mother's
hnart. A gift from a cherished friend
brings with it a key that UnlockS our,
tenderest feelings; it opens portals
that the benefactions of pomp and
glitter could never reach; but a, moth
er's gift to her child conveys an import
that has a heavenly impress upon it.

Wonderful Sagacity of ,a Dog,
The 'following story, Strange as it
may appears is vouched for' by several
witnesses, whose testimony . is unim
peachable : „ .
A short time ago a female New
foundland dog was in the habit of com
ing to the house of a lady in this city
who would throw to it pieces of cold
meat, which the dog would eat, , and,
having satisfied its hunger, go , away
again. So confirmed did this habit be ;
come, that ata dertain hotir everyday
the lady would expect the dog, and the
animal would put in an appearance.—
A few days, ago, before feeding her,
the lady sadly said to her, 'Why don't
you bring Me one of your puppies .7"
repeating the question several times as
she stood at the window, the dog look
ing her, in the face . with an expression
of intelligence as if it understood every,
word the lady said. The next day, to
the lady's astonishment, at the usual
hour, the dog' returned, and behold I
'was accompanied by a little puppy.
The lady, fed, both:,doge and- then,
took up, the puppy,into the window,
when the old dog scampered off and
did not return for three days. • At the'
end :of 'that time the dog again ap
peared, when, after feedingiti.theAedy
'said, "next time
,hring• y.out
pies, I to see the'm;'„and, this.
neat - morning, aura' ennui!), the"dog'
returned; accompanied by three New
foundland -Several of the neigh.'
bore 'sew, the; whole transaction, and
declared that they considered this one,
of flit; Most wonderful proofe'of the sa
gacity' of the dog they have'eier
known. .Where the dog came from,
or to whom it• belongs, is not -known,
but wo have the name of the lady and
also of those who_were eye-witnesses
to the occurrences as 'narrated by us.

REMINIBCENCE.-000 of the most
thrilling reminiscences of the annals of
the American Revolution is recorded
of General Peter Muhlenbcrger, whose
ashes repose in the burying ground of
the old Trappe church, in Montgome
ry county, Pennsylvania. When the
war broke out, Mublenberg was the
rector of a Protestant Episcopal church
in Dunmore county, Virginia., On a
Sunday morning he administered the
communion of the Lord's Silkier-to
his charge, stating that in the after
noon of that day be would preach .a:
sermon on "The duties mon owe to
their Country." At the appOinted
time the building was crowded with
listeners. The disccurse was founded
upon the text from Solomon :. "There•
is a time for every purpose and for ey-i
66 , work." The sermon burned with;
a patriotic fire; every eientonee 'and
intonation told the speaker's deep ear
nestness in What he was saying: Paus
ing a moment iat the close of •bis.dis-'
course, ho, repeated, the, words of ,hial
text„ and in tones of thunder exclaim
ed: "The'time'td preach is past; the
timer to fight ha's conic, r and suiting
the action , to the word, he threw from
his shoulders .his. Episcopal robes and
stood before his congregation arrayed
in a military uniform. Drumming for
recruits commenced on the spot, and
it is said that almost every male of
suitable age in the house enlisted forth
a man to his facet° mind his own_busi-,
noes would be' considered abOut equal
to knocking him down. And yet it is
ono of the,simploist rules of right coil.;
duet, and the most useful : . that, reap!
kind can, ado . pt their ; intercourse
with orkeli other. .T,here is a great deal
of the Paul 'Pry spirit in the human
heart, or wonderful inquisitiveness in,
regard to the , personal:and:private af
fairs of friends, aid , neighbors.
,spirit wakes more mischief, in the con:
aninity than almoit any other cause,
and creates more nialide, envy and
jealousy than can be. , ovorcome in :4
,century. Let every man „und , woman,
mind their own business, and there
will not be half,the trouble In the
'world_ that there is at present.
LADIES, would you ~not .be wiser,
and would not your friends be happier,
should you think less and talk less
about dress? Some ladies wear out
their mind more than they wear out
the dresses they think about.
