(Kxtract from Ike London .Medical Journal.)
J. B Williams, M. D., F. It. S., Professor of Medi
,i:,e in University College, London, Consulting Physi
4it to the Hospital for consumption, tec., says: I have
prescribed the Oil in above four hundred cases of tubercu
lous disease of the Lungs, in different stages, whicb have
been under my care the last two years and a half. In
the large number of cases, 206 out of 234, its use was fol
lowed by marked and unequivocal improvement, varying
in degree m different cases, from a temporary retarda
; . n of the progress of the disease and a mitigation of dis
tressing pymploms, up to a more or less complete restor- (
stion to apparent health.
■ The effect of the Cod Liver Oil in most of these cases
wis very remarkable. Even in a few days the cough
was mitigated, the expectoration diminished in quantity
and opacity, the night sweats ceased, the pulse became
siower, and of better volume, and the appetite, flesh and
itrenglh were gradually improved.
"In conclusion, I repeat that the pure fresh oil from
the Liver of the Cod is more beneficial rn the treatment
of Pulmonary Consumption than any agent, medicinal,
dietetic or regimenal, that has yet been employed"
Ai ve hate made arrangements to procure the Cod Liver
I'll, fresh from head quarters, it can noir be had chemically
tare by the single bottle, or in boxes of one dozen each.
In wonderful efficacy has induced numerous spure-'us
■suali ui. As its success depends entirely on its purity,
wo much care cannot be used in procuring it genuine.
Every bottle having on it our icrtffen signature maybe
iemended upon as genuine.
Pamphlets containing an analysis of the Oil, with no
ucti of it from Medical Journals, will be sent to those
who address us free of postage.

There is a habit which boys teach each other at the

few of those who indulge in this pernicious practice art
aware of the cor.spquenres until they find the nervous

feeble, he is unable to labor with accustomed vigor, or
toapplyhis mind to study ; h.s step is tardy and weak,
he is dull irresolute.
Persons of all ages can now judge what is the cause of
their declining healtn, losing their vigor, becoming weak,

cooking is required, it can be kept out, and
the stove is then the same as a regular Hatha

But thy wounds cry to heaven, and the cure will
Oh " come to my heart, then, most cherished
Though the wide world forsake you, vour wel

No loud winds arising shall break your repose—
No cold frosts shall chill you, so warmly it glows.
I'll lull you with songs, ami with dreams soft and
And calm o'er your siumbers, mv love, watch
I'll keep ;
Oh! doubt not the fond heart, lis steadfast and
And strong, like the lion's, with thinking of you.
(H O O S I \ G WIVES.
Some Yankee eays to take a nice girl out
slaying is very pretty, aint it ? And then the
insinuating critters do iay tlie bells make such
a din, there's no hearin one's self speak; so
they put their pretty iittle mugs close up to
your face and talk, talk, talk, till one can't :
help lookin at them instead c f the horse, and i
then whap you go, capsized into a snow drift
together, skins, cushions, and all. And then to
see the little critter shake herself when she !
gets up, like a duck landing f;om a pond, a j
chattering away all the time like a canary bird,
and you a haw-hawing with pleasure, is fun
alive, you may depend. In this way, the blue- I
nose gets on tooftkr himself a lover, before he
knows where he is. But when he gets mar
ried, he recovers his eye sight in little less
than half no time. He soon finds he's treed,
liis flint is fixed ihen, you may depend. .She
larns him how vinegar is made. " Put plenty
of sugar into tlie water afbrehand, my dear,"'
bays she. 'if you want it real sharp.'* The !
larf is on the other eide of the mouth. If his
slay gets upsot, it's no longer a fuuny matter, I
tell you; lie calciies ii right and left. Her !
eyes don't look up to his'n any more, nor her
little tongue ring like a little bell any longer;
but a groat big hood covers her head, and a
whappin great muff covers her hands and she
looks like a bag of o!d clothes agoing to the
brook to be washed. When they get out, she
don't want any more for him to walk lock and
lock with her, but they walk like a horse and
cow to water, in each gutter. If there ain't a
transmogrification it's a pity. The o'ifferuiice
between a wife and a sweetheart is near about
as great as there is between new and liani ci
der—a man never tires of putting one to his
lips, but he makes plagupy wry faces at t'other.
It makes me so kinder wnmble-crept when 1
think on it, that I am cleared to ventur on
matrimony at all. I have seen come bitie
noies must properly bit, you may depend. The
marriage yoke is plaguey opt to gall the neck,
as the ash bow does the o.v in rainy weather,
unless it be most particularly well tilted.—
You've seen a yoke of cattle that warn't pro
perly mated; they spend more time in pulling

A personal friend, who is acquainted with
all the circumstances, has furnished us with
the follow ing details respecting a gun, which
may be of interest to many ot our readers :
Several years ago, .\ r. Benjamin F. Miller,
who resides near Washington, Rappahannock
county, had a favorite negro boy, whom lie fre
quently took with him in his hunting excur
sions. On a certain occasion, he took his gun
out to shoot birds near his father's hause; the
boy followed him as usual; and, either forget
ting or not observing the boy, between whom
and his master was some thick bushes, he shot
the bird, and killed the boy at the same time.
In November last, a man by the name of
Johnson, also of that county, had baited some
wild Turkeys, and had concealed himself amid
the limbs of a fallen pine tree, near the place
to await their arrival. Another gentleman,
named Fletcher, who had by some means pos- !
sessed himself ot Johnson's gun, was hunting
for turke>3 in the sunc neighborhood, and
passing near tlie tree under which Johnson was
concealed, and attracted by n noise among the •
branches, catching a glimpse ot Johnson's head,
who had on a black fur cap, he fired, and the
unhappy man fell, exclaiming, " Lord have
mercy on me!"' and immediately expired.
The unlucky gun was purchased of .Mr.
Fletcher by n gentleman named Cunan, who
resides near Flint Hill, in Rappahannock coun
ty, and a few weeks ago it was again the in
strument of death to a human being. Mr.
c'urran was hunting for turkeyf, near the dwel
ling of his brother-in-law, Mr George W.
Hompton, and coming to some thick bushes
among which were grapes, and seeing some
thing which he supposed to be n turkey, with
out taking a closer observation, hr: fired, aud
horrible to tell ! the unfortunate object proved
to be a daughter of Mr. Coinpton, aged nine or
ten years old. IShe lived until the next day
and expired.— Ya. Tenth Legion.
CONDENSED ARGUMENT —A very celebrated
Scotch divine says:— '• The world we inhabit
must have had an origin ; that origin must have
consisted in a cause; that cause must have
been intelligent; that intelligence must have
been ultimate; that ultimate power must have
been supreme; and that which always was.
and is supreme, we know by thena e- nf'God."
