TOBACCO 'affects nlso the entire nervous sys tem, manifesting itself as all who have mod the noxious weed will benr testimony in Lassitude, Xerroui Irritability, Water Brash, Dyspepsia, A many other disorders of a similar character. THE TASTE RESTORATIVE TROCHES are designed to counteract these baneful influences, and hare proved completely successful in a mul titude of cases, and wherever used. Doing harm less in themselves they exert n beneficial offcet upon the entire system, restoring the Taste which has become vitiated or destroyed by groat indul gence, completnly removing the irritation and accompanying tickling sensation of the Throng which are always consequent upon the abstniniuy from the use of Tobacco, ami by giving a health tone to the stomach Invigorate the whole system Persons who are irretrievably undermining their constitutions and shortening Iheir lives, should use thee Troches immediately and throw off the injnrious and unpleasant habit of Tubao eo chewing, These Troches or Lozenge ard put up in a cenvenient and portnhlo form at the low price of 40 cents per box.

The Rev. George G. Cookman. Many of our renders doubtless remom- her the Rev. Mr. Cookman, tlio talented Methodist minister, who was chaplain of the Cnitod States Seniite,'nnd subsequent- ly lost in the steamer "President." The following sketch from tho retinitis - ccnecH ot tlio JJon. O. JI. S-nith, published 1,1 the Indianapolis Journal, will bo highly I interesting to ull who remember the olo- ' jhi pieucncr aim sterling man: Jt was Sabbath morning. The last of the city church bells won ringing as I left i. ""iiny hoartim; lionse on Capital Jlill, at 14 00 ii-nl.i, :,,. ,. i'.. iM....,,.l It .iu., j i.. tun wvj , ivi it i-nn-y lltl'11, lib was quarterly meeting. The preacher had closed his sermon, when there arose nt the desk, n slender spnre man, about live feet eight, dark complexion, black hair fulling carelessly over his high forehead, lean bo ny face, wide mouth, round-breasted black coat, with velvet fulling collar, black vest and pantaloons. Addressing the congre gation, he said : " lie desire to take up a i small collection for the relief of destitute, worn out Methodist preachers nnd their families. AVc appeal to-day to tho hearts of the congregation," and took his wat. A large collection followed. I whispered to Patrick O. Good, ofOhio, who sat beside me, " Who u that 7" "Don't you know him It is George (J. Cookman." Tho next Sabbath I was at tho Chapel again. Mr. Cookman preached. I re turned satisfied that ho was no ordinary man. The election for Chaplain of the Senate came on a few days after, and without the knowledge of Mr. Cookman, I privately suggested his name to the Sen ators around me. The most of them hud heard him preach. lie was elected Chap lain by a decided vote over tho I!ev. Hen ry Slieer, against whom there was not the least objection, but he wanted tp bring Mr. Cookman more prominently before the public. The next Sabbath he preach ed his first sermon in the hall of the House, to a very large congregation, from the text. "Th? '.vord of the. Lord and I of Gideon." lie made a profound im- pression on his hearers that day, which I seemed to increase with every succeeding sermon. It is not my purpose to sketch the many sermons of Mr. Cookman during the time he was Chaplain of the Senate, the most of which I heard. He was a clear, distinct and powerful preacher. The remarkable clearness of his mental vision enabled htm to see and describe whatever ho touched so as almost to make Paul, Silas, Feter, Mark and .loh.i stand bcfoio you as he named them. His tone of voice, ns he warmed with his subject, nnd the tear stealing down his check, were irresistible. As a pulpit orator take liitti nil in all, he had few equals and no superiors, that I ever heard. There was no place for a choir where Cookmnn sang.'IIis voice wns melody itself. I heard him in tho Senate Chamber on a funeral occasion of Senator IV;tts, of Connecticut. Tho Chamber was crowded. Tlio President, Department, Foreign Ministers, Senators, nnd Repre sentatives were there. I distinctly re member one of his figures of speech. "A9 the human family como upon the great stage of life, they find nt every fork of the road tho finger board distinctly pointing to tho grave to the gravel There is no other road to travel from in fancy to old age, and death but the road that leads to the grave." There was not a dry eye in tho Chamber when he closed his sermon of one hour, nnd sang alone the single verse of the hymn And must this body die This well wrought frame decay? And must these active limbs of mine, Lie mouldering in the clay? The session of Congress was about to close upon the administration of Mr. Van I'uien. Tho inauguration of OeneralJIar lison was soon to take place. Mr. Cook man had all his Arrangements made to vis it England on the steamer President. The first dispatch from tho new adminis tration was to be confided to h:s charge. The next Sabbath he was to tako leave of the members of Congress in his farewell sermon. The day came. An hour before the usual time the crowd was seen filling the pavements of the Avcnuo, nnd press ing up the hill to Representative Hall, which was soon filled to overflowing, and hundreds unable to get seats went away disappointed. I obtained a seat early in front of the clerk's desk. John Quincy Adams sat in the speaker's chair facing Mr. Cookman. The whole space on the toslrnm nnd steps was filled with Sena tors nnd Representatives. Tho moment had come. Mr.Cookman.evidentlyinuch affected, kneeled in a thrilling prayer, and rose with his eyes blinded with tctrs. His voice faltered with supressed emotion, as he gavo out the hymn When marshalled on tho nightly plain, The glittering hosts bestud the sky, One stnr ulono of all tho train, Can fix tho sinner's wandering eye. Hark! Hark! to God tho chorus breaks, From every host, from every gem, But ono alone, the Saviour speaks, It is the star of Bethlehem. Once on the rairinc sea I rode. Thestorm wusloud, thenight was dark The ocenn vawned, and rudely blowed Thewindthattossedmvfounderingbnrk The hymn was sung by Mr. Cookmnn i a in in.! not inn niir hi voice as it filled the larce hall, and the U. ni.n.l. wiih thoir .rhftM rliiwl awa in the dome. "And I saw a great white throne, and t. from whose face the .nH fl.,l . .n,l U,.r him that sat on it. from whose face the of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.' i Mr. Cookman was morn affected when i''o av 118 the 1x. tlinti I hud over seen him before. 1 le several times passed bis i handkerchief over his eyes before lie be. Pn. The first sentences ore fresh in my ! recollection : ' "When .Massillon, one of the greatest j divines that f ranee ever knew, was called I to preach the funeral sermon of the de ; parted King, in the Cathedral at Paris, be- irigimijj umj, me royni uiiuuv, the Chambers and the grandees of 1- ranee, he took with him to the sacred desk a lit tle golden urn, containing a lock of hair of the late King, the immense congre gation was seated, and the silence of death reigned. Massillon arose, held tho little urn in his fingers, h'u hand resting upon the sacred cushion. All eyes were in tently fixed upon the King. As his hand w.is returned to the sacred cushion, the loud and solemn voico of Massillon was heard in every part of the cuthedrnl, 'GW alone is;rrcat '.' So I say to you, to day, my beloved hearers, there is no human great ness, ' God alvnc in irrot The subject was the Day of Judgment. 1 hud heard it preached before many time, but never as 1 heard it then. The immerse congregation was held' ulmosl breathless with tho most beautiful, sublime and pow erful sermon I ever heard, the final separation in the lie srioke oi great dav of judgment and fancied tho anger ot the Lord locking the door that opened to the hottomlesg pit, stepping upon the ram parts, letting fall the key into the abyss below, and dropping the last tear over the fallen and condemned man. lie closed "I go to tho land of my birth, to press once more to my heart my aged mother, and drop a tear on the grave of my snint ed father, farewell, farewell-" And he sank overpowered to his seat, while the whole congregation responded with sympathising tears. General Harrison had been inaugurated. The despatches for the British govern ment were signed by Mr. Webster nnd de livered to Mr. Cookmnn. Ho took leave of his friends nt Washington, nnd left for New York. As we parted his last words were, "May heaven bless you, Mr. Smith ; if ever I return you shall see mo in the West." A few days afterwards there wns seen passing Governor's Island the splendid new steamer l'rmdtnl, on heroutward trip to Liverpool, with Mr. Cookman, Tyrone Power, and a long list of other distinguish ed passengers on board. The Hying stea mer hmHeft tho lighthouso far behind, And moved gulanUy on the open Atlantic, with tho prospect of as speedy and ns safe a voyage as any vessel that ever crossed tho ocean. Night was approaching. The clouds in the heaven portended a storm. The winds blew and howled a dreadful hurricane. The ill-fated vessel was seen late in the evening, strugglingwith fate now lying in the trough o!' the sea, now on the top of tho wave, now upon her side, and again ns it wero plunging into the abyss below. "The storm was loud, tho night wns dark, The ocean yawned, nnd rudely Mowed The wind that tossed my foundering bark." Morning came. The sun roso on nn open sea. Tho "President, " with all on board had gone down nnd was never heard of more. Thus perished, ere he reached tho mered i an of life, ono of the eminent divines of our country.

On the other, it is regarded as u natural read ion from the materialism of the last twenty years, a direct interposi tion of the Divine power, nn outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Without entering in to tho theological aspect of the question, we may say that the movement promises somo excellent results. Wo are led to this conclusion, both by tho experience of past awakenings of a similar churnct r, and by what wo all know respecting the constitu tion of the human inind. At periodical intervals, longer or short er in duration, according to the character of the times, have theso religious move ments occurred. Among the most power ful wns that which was witnessed ubout a century ugo. It began in a prayer meet ing, instituted by tlio Wesleys, nt Oxford. l nilerine prcaciiiiig oi joiiii esiey unu ' George Whitelield, it soon embraced both continents, and effected a revulsion in the I religious condition of society second only i to that brought about, in the political ; world, a generation later, by tho Ameii- can war of independence. All tho church es, in every denomination, felt its influ ence more or less. It received the sanc tion on this side of tho Atlantic, of Jona than Edwards, tho greatest metaphysician of his century. It numbered among its udvocates abroad tho men and women most eminent for consistent piety. The soundness of this endorsement was subse quently established by tho fruits of that great revival. Within a single generation I it totally changed the face of society in ' iincland. Ihe Parson Irullibersof field- in ceased to bo a representative of a class, The Souiro Westerns of the same author, under the altered tone of morality and re- licion which it inaugurated, grew ashamed of their coarseness, their profanity,' their cock-hghting, men- lntemperence. n wo would lorm a correct .estimate oi the inuu- , would lorm A correct esumuio oi me inuu- eneo of that great emotional movement, , everything affecting life and oivi iwitmn 'Las been ameliorated. The churches were fust reformed, nnd tho society fol lowed in the wake. Ithns been the complaint, for ninny years, not only of the religious press, I tit also of the lay, that men were too entirely engrossed with nioney-mnking, with the love of show, with things gnerally "ol the earth, earthy." To eat, drink nnd be merry, seemed practically the whole code of life. Something which would put n stop to this, uhich should render men more spiritual, would be, it wns everv were admitted. a lasting benefit. It would seem now, as if thut something wns com ing. If so. we, in common with ull well wishers of society, gladly welcome it. lie must expect, in such (in ngitution, many excesses, initriy absurdities, many backsliding. All great movements of the public mind, whether political or relig ious, have been accompanied by some things thut are to be regretted, lint though the impetuous torrent may dis turb, for u time, the quiet nnd clearness of the stream, it brings dow n with it the pure grains of gold ; and theso will remain when the rush nnd tie-is nnd turbid wa ters have pcr-scd nway. Lrdtjer. What is Gold Lace ? Gold lace i not gold lace. It does nut l deserve tiK-title, ir tne com is npplic I I s a surface to silver. It is not even silver wee, ior uie snver is nppncu to n founda tion ot silk. I lie silken threnrls tor mak ing this material nre wound round with gold wire, so thickly ns to conceal thesilk ; and the making of this gold wire is one of the most singular mechanical operations imaginable. In thefirt place, the refiner prepares u solid rod of silver about nn inch in thickness ; he heats this rod, applies upon the surface a coating of gold leaf, burnishes this down, npplies another coat ing, nnd so on, until the gold is about one hundredth part tho thickness of the sil ver." The rod is then subjected to a train of processes which brings it down to the state of fine wire, it is passed through holes in a steel plate, lessening (step by step in diameter. Tho gold never deserts the silver, but adheres closely to it and shares nil its mutations; it is one hun dredth part the thickness of the silver nt tho begining, nnd it maintains the same rntio to tho end. As to the thin ness to which tho gold coated rod of silver can be brought, the limit depends on the delicacy of human skill; but tho most re markable example ever known wns brought forward by Dr. Wolliiston.. This was nn example of sold gold wire without nny silver, lie procured a small rod of silver, bored a hole through it from end to end, nnd inserted in this hole the small est gold wire ho could procure; ho sub jected the silver to the usual wiredrawing process, until he had brought it to its finest attainable state being in fact a silver w ire ns fine ns a hair, with a gold wire in its centre. To isolate this gold wire he subjected it towarm nitrous acid, by which the silver was dissolved, leaving the gold perhaps the thinest round wire the hand of man has yet produced. Put this wire though beyond ull comparison finer than any employed in the manufactures, docs not approach in thinness the film of gold on the surface of silver in gold luce. It has been calculated that the gold on tho very finest silver wire for gold laco is not more than ono third of ono millionth of an inch in thickness, that is not ubovo ono tenth the thickness of ordinary lead gold.

CONFLAGRATION IN NOR WAY. Christian!. Anril 13. Tho treat fire which has taken i-lace hero broke out in Skipper Gadn, about one o'clock in tho morning, in the very centre of tho town, nnd in a few hours about sixty houses, some of them among the lurgest in tho place, were reduced to ruins. Although it my be said to have occurred in the very kernel of town, there were still some old wooden constructions iti the back yards, among some of which the firo originated, ami spread with a rapidity which defied all the exertions of the firemen, with the imperfect upplionces ut their disposal. No doubt had these been more nmple. and the organization generally more complete, the devouring element would have been kepi within bounds, and the calamity the inhabitants aro now visited with would have been far less extensive ; ns it is, n bout 1,000 people huvo become houseless, and, although tho visitation chiefly cll'ects the. middle classes, still there urea num ber of poorer individuals who have lost their whole substance, The value of the fixed properlv destroy - ett is Cfiuniiuci at juio.uuu, nnd about a similar amount in goods nnd moveables. The loss is about l!20,000 w hich, coming so close upon thchite momentary derangement.-, cannot but ndd somewhat to the general distress. At the same time, it no doujit will be the salvation of many shop keepers who were tottering, as the unlor tunate insurance companies will have to pay fur their old stock, itc. Full two nnd a half quarters of tho town have been de stroyed; but it will be a great gainer in appearance, nnd nt least two years work is cut for n great number of artisans and laborers. It is not all impossible that tho calamity may have arisen from incendiar ism, as tho police hud received several let ters from tho working classes, to the ef fect that if work was not provided for them they would be coin polled to take! vn hands. No ' xamined ' The i 3 about X20.000, a or,H M,..it,.u the initiative into their own witnesses have yet been examined.
