cine in University t'ollepe, London, Consulting Plivsi*
ciau to the Hospital for consumption, ic., says : I have I
prescribed the Oil in above four hundred cast ? oi"tiib"rcu
lous disease of Ihe Lungs, in different stages, which have
been under my care the last two years and a half. In
the large number of r.-scs, 200 out 01'2.71, its use was fid- j
1 iwed by marked and unequivocal improvement, varying
In degree in different cases, from a temporary retarda
tion ot the progress of the disease and a mitigation of dis
tressing symptoms, up to a more or less complete restor
ation to apparent health.
44 The effect of the Cod Liver Oil In most of these .* ises
was very remarkable. Even in a few days the cough !
was mitigated, the expectoration diminished in quantity '
and opacity, the night sweats ceased, the |,til--- became
slower, arid of better volume, and the appetite, 11 *.-li and
strength were gradually improved
44 1n conclusion, I repeat that the pure fresh oil from '
the Liver of the Cm! is more beneficial in the treatment ■
of Pulmonary Consumption than any agent, medicinal. 1
dietetic or regimenal, that lias yet been employed."

Tell ine, ye winged winds,
That round my pathway roar,
Do ye not know some spot
Where mortals weep no more ?
Some lone and pleasant dell,
Some valley in the west,
Where, free from toil and pain,
The weary soul may rest?
The loud wind softened to a whisper low,
And sighed for pity as it answered 44 Nol"
Tell rne, thou mighty deep,
Where billows round me plav,
Know'st thou some favored spot,
Some Island far away,
Where weary man may find
The bliss for which he sighs?
Where sorrow never lives,
And friendship never dies?
The lond waves rolling in perpetual flow, •
Stopped for a while and answered 44 No'" ,
Thou serenest moon,
That with such holy face
Dost Jook upon the earth,
Asleep in night's embrace
Tell me, in all thy round,
Hast thou not seen some spot
Where miserable man
Might find a happier lot ?
Behind a cloud the moon withdrew in wo,
And a voice sweet, but sad, responded "No'.' 1
Tell me, my secret soul.
Oh! tell me, Hope and Faith,
Is there no resting [dace
From sorrow, sin, and death ?
Is there no happy spot,
Where mortals may he blessed—
Where grief mas* find a balm,
And weariness a rest?
Faith, Hope and Love—best boons to mor
tals given,
Wav'd their bright wings, and whispered—
yes, in Heaven.
Come, come, come—
O'er the hills, free from care.
In my home true pleasures share,
Blossoms sweet, flowers most rare—
Come where joys are found.
Here the sparkling dews of morn,
Trees and shrubs with gems adorn,
Jewels bright, gaily worn-
Beauty all around.
Tra Ja la la, tra la la la,
Tra la la la, tra la la la.
Come, come, come—
Not a sigh, not a tear,
F.'er is found in sadness here ;
Music soft, breathing near,
Charms away each care.
Birds in joyous bowers among,
Hill and dale with grateful song,
Dearest strains here prolong—
Vocal all the air.
Tra Ja Ja la, tra la la la.
Tra la la la, tra la la la.
Come, come, come—
When the day ? gently gone,
Evening shadows coming on,
Then by love, kindly won,
Truest bliss be thine.
Ne'er was found a bliss so pure,
Never joys so long endure,
\\ho would not love securer
Who would joys decline:
t Tra la la la, tra la la la,
Tra la la la, tra la la la.
A ffoutleman passenger on a steamboat
from V w Orleans to Cincinnati, on the
trip tip, was introduced to a vounglady
on hoard, by a gentleman relation of hers.
We ite a brief description of the two.
The \ oung lady was charmingly* lovely \
and amiably in her manners ; the gent was
wiitv. sentimental, and amusing, his man
ners n .hie, Ids figure manly—such an one i
as would catch a ladv's eve.
Thrown together in each other's society,
and mutually attracted, it is not to he
vonderotl that they grew quite familiar.
They had lete-a-teles on the guards,
promenaded the deck arm in arm, the 1
gentleman whispering soft nonsense in the
lady's ear. The passengers pronounced
it a ease of love at first sight ; the ladies
were more respectful to one who they
thought was soon to he a matron, and
chambermaids (as chambermaids always,
do) wailed upon nobody else but tiie bride. ;
Miserable prophets-—it was not fated to be !
a match.
The boat at length arrived at her desti
nation ; the association of the two loving
ones was at an end, and thev were obliged
to separate. Whispered adieus, with a '
soft entreaty from him, was answered hy
her thrusting a card into his hand, and thus
they parted, she for her father's marble
halls, and he to the East, whither business
imperatively called him. The hope of
seeing her on his return filled his heart |
with joy.
Bho made an astounding discovery |
shortly after her return home. A friend
of hers, who sported mustaches and a
goatee, quizzed her unmercifully for los
ing her heart to a mechanic who was going
to Washington to get a patent for a plough.
This was very provoking to her. She
protested that she thought him a gentle
man or she never would have accepted :
his attentions.
.Six weeks lied by, and the young me- j
chanic was on his return home. 11 is
heart hounded with joy as he approached
Cincinnati. Visions of grace, beauty and
loveliness floated through his brain. Oh !
what pleaure to meet La llelle of the
Queen City. Her charms had made a deep i
impression on his susceptible heart. His I
foot touched the wharf, and away he tied 1
to the mansion of his beloved. He was
ushered in and his name announced. The

does not know him, bestows no glance of
recognition upon the face lit up with
pleasure at seeing: !ier again.
1 You do not recollect me,' said he tim

—if one he had made—was so evanescent.
• 1 do not, sir,' replied she, in a cold tone
and with an air of hauteur such as a tra
gic queen affects,
lie reminded her of their previous ac
quaintance on board the steamer.
4 (>, yes, ves !-—a steamboat acquain
tance ! Good morning, sir,' and with this
answer she left the room.
Her old papa had heard the name of the
visiter when announced, but thought his
presence would he rnal apropos at their
tirst meeting, so the good-natured old gent
remained in his room. He knew the real
position and standing of his visiter, and
hugged himself at the prospect of Julia's
marrying the Hon. Mr. , M. C., a
! rich and distinguished gentleman. But
moustaches had humbugged Julia; and
simply because he was a mechanic, she
. had given him an unpardonable insult.
The reader may fancy Julia's mortifica
tion and father's rage, when they had

One of the most frightful scenes that the
wildest imagination can picture. i= that re
lated of a cavern, in Dauphinv, near Ore
noble, in France, a sort of subterranean
| iagara :
According to an old magazine, in which
: we find the account, Francis 1., in his youth
j determined to explore a sheet of water
I within this cavern, which had previously
| arrested the attention of all visiters.—
Floating upon a barge brilliantlv illumina
ted. and attended by some of his bravest
| courtiers, the gallant Francis struck boldly
j out, the Golumbus of the eavcrned deep,
j He landed on the opposite fdtore. after sail
ing two miles over this sheet of water.
He then turned hi- barge in another direc
tion. determined to fathom all the myseries
jof the lake. By and by an experienced
; boatman declared the boat was no longer
• floating on a stagnant lake, but in a current
that was perceptibly increasing in strength;
and a courtier called the attention of the
monarch to a hollow noise, heard in the
distance, which, like the current, was every
moment growing stronger, and even swell-
I ing into horrific thunder. They rested on
their oars, while a plank with several
flaming torches tied to it, was committed
ito tire water. It floated rapidly away,
became agitated, tossed up and down in
the distance, and finally plunged down the
unknown cataract to which the explorers
were so ignorantly hastening. " Back
i oars."' was the cr\, and rowing for their
lives they escaped. But what a frightful
i hazard!
Vs? Scores of foxes were caught in the
frozen regions by Sir James Ross' expe
dition. and turned into " two penny post
men,'" by putting copper coll us round their
necks, stamped with the names and posi
tions of the ships, and the localities of the
; provision depots. These foxes range enor
mous distances, and some of them will
probably be caught In Sir John Frank
lin's party if it still survive. Foxes were
turned to a somewhat different account by
Sampson in the Old Testament times.
.MARKET SCENE. —A would-be fashion-
I able lady, dressed in all the colors, goes to
market, followed by a negro boy, with a
basket. Espying a goose upon a Jersey
man's stall, but not taking particular notice
of it, she goes up to the farmer, and the
following dialogue ensues :
Lady.—What's the price of those tur
key ?
Jersey-man.— Those turkey is a goose,
Lady.—W ell, what's the price of it ?
Jersey-man.—Seventy-five cents.
Lady.—That's too much; I'll give seven
le\irs, (87! cents.)
Jersey-man.—Well, you may take it for
that. It's the lust I've got, and 1 won't
haggle about the'price.
4 Miss, will you take my arm ?'
• La, yes, and you, too.'
4 Han't spare but the arm. Miss,' hastily
replied the old bachelor.
• Then, said Miss, 1 can't take it, as my
motto is to 4 go the whole lmg or none.'
\ot long since, two sailors passing by a
tailor's shop, observed a tailor at work
with his'waistcoat patched with different
! colors of cloth, when one of the tars cried
out to tite oilier, 4 Look ye Jack, did you
ever see so many sorts of cabbage grow
on one stump before ?'
