ALTHOUGH the great fatality of Pulmonary
Diseases, at this ‘time shows that there are
particular cases that render still too applicable the
designation, approbia medicorum —the disgrace of
physicians—to this call of diseases; and that there
are stages in their progress, which having once been
reached, recovery is doubtful. Still no one should
despair. The writings of physicians, who have
given to these affections particular attention, abound
with many recorded cases'of recovery when the
patient bad reached a seeming hopeless stage of
the disease; and there is at this time, a remedy
prepared in Philadelphia which has met with the
most triumphant and cheering success in the most
-‘obstinate forms of Throat and Pulmonary Diseases
—so as to have obtained the sanction and employ
ment in the practice of many physicians.
Allusion is had to Thompson's Compound Syrup
of Tar and Wood Naptha —the preparation of one,
who, having given to diseases of the Lungs and
their means of cure, the most careful and thorough
attention, presented to the public this great remedy.
The soothing and curative power of TAR has
often been observed in severe coughs, and Con
sumption. But in the above preparation, beside
some of our most valuable vegetable pectorals
there is conjoined with it the Wood Naptha, a med
icine but lately introduced, but which has- been
employed witli most satisfactory results in England,

at Private Sale.
THE subscriber is desirous to dispose of his val
uable Farm, situated on the Shenandoah River,
five miles above Front Royal (the county town) and
containing about 400 acres, a large propor
tion of which is first quality meadow. This
Farm is beautifully timbered, well watered,
admirably located in point of health, conve
nience,‘and society. The.greater part of this land
is in the highest state of cultivation, well set in
clover, and highly productive; upon the Farm are
: .. several comfortable Dwelling Houses, and an
|Sm|!® excellent store house, and the greatest abun-
JSlS.dance of the finest fruit ol all descriptions. If
desirable this Farm might be divided into two or
more Farms, giving to each a sufficiency of timber
and water, and when the projected improvement
of the Shenandoah River shall be completed (which
it soon will be) this property cannot fail to be im
mensely valuable. I deem it unnecessary to give
a more detailed description as persons desirin" to
purchase will doubtless examine for themselves.
Any communications addressed to me at Front
Royal, Warren county, (Va.) will receive attention.

Life’s Sunny Spots.
BY W3I. LEGGETT.
Though life’s .a dark and thorny path.
r Its goal the silent tomb,
It yet some spots of sunshine hath,
That smile amidst the gloom.
The friend who weal or woe partakes,
Unchanged xvhat’er his lot,
Who kindly soothes the heart that aches,
Is sure a sunny spot.
The wife who halt our burthen bears,
And utters not a moan ;
Whose ready hand wipes off our tears,
Unheeded all their own ;
Who treasures every kindly word,
Each harsher one forgot,
And carols blithely as a bird—
She's, too, a sunny spot.
The child who lifts at morn and eve,
In prayer-its tiny voice;
Who grieves when’er its parents grieve,
And joys when they rejoice,
In whose bright eyes young genius glows,
Whose heart, without a blot,
Is fresh and pure as summer’s rose —
That child’s a sunny spot.
There’s yet upon life’s weary road
One spot of brighter glow,
Where sorrow’ half forgets its load,
And tears no longer flow’;
Friendship may wither, love decline,
Our child dishonor blot;
But still undimmed that spot will
Religion lights that spot.
The King of the Soil.
Black sin may nestle below a crest,
And crime below a crown ;
As good hearts beat ’neath a fustian vest,
As under a silken gown. -
Shall tales be told of the chiefs who sold
Their sinews to crush and kill,
And never a word be sung or heard
Of the men who reap and till 7
I Low in thanks to the sturdy throng
Who greet the young morn withitoil ;
And the burden I give my earnest
Shall be this— The King of the. Son.!
Then sing for the kings who have no crown
But the blue sky o'er their head—
Never Sultan or Dev had such power as they
To withhold or to offer bread.
Proud ships may hold both silver and gold,
The wealth of a distant strand ;
But ships would rot, and be valued not,
Were there none to till the land.
The wildest heath, and the wildest brake,
Are rich as the richest fleet.
For they gladden the wild birds when they wake,
And give them food to eat.
And with willing hand, and spade, ami plow,
Tlif> gl.’wlilfning liuur uhall ooino,
When that which is called the “ waste land’’ now
Shall ring wfth the “ Harvest Home !”
Then sing for the kings who have no crown
Hut the him* sky o'crStheir head—
Never Sultan or Duy Inuj such power as they
■» To withhold or to offer bread. —Dublin iYr//<tm.

among man. It \& mild in it=> code, benevolent in
its intentions, and is tenacious-of moral, religious,
and political rights. It would curb the rough-shod
expeditions of aristocracy over the labor of the
country; and restrain the lawless aggressions of
privileged wealth. It respects the rights of person,
property, and conscience: it opens the door for
freedom of speech and of the press. It tends to
destroy inequality, suffering, and poverty. It pro
tects and nurtures the general interests of society.
It enacts to benefit the many, without conflicting
with the constitutional rights or privileges of the
minority. The wili of the many is the arch on
which Slate sovereignty rests. It aids.labor, and
fosters the cultivation of the soil, whence all our
wealth is derived. It has no love for persecution ;
but its course, like that of Truth, is onward. It
levels distinctions among men, except that which
arises from integrity, virtue, and merit. It exposes
the grasping, avaricious’ domineering, cruel, and
overbearing. It has nothing in common with in
tolerance. and corruption, and depraved ambition
nothing compatible with fraud, humbug, delusion,
or anarchy. Its empire is founded on wisdom,
freedom, and the happiness of a world how grovel
ling in error, superstitution and despotism.
It has no cold philosophy, but speaks to the heart
of kindness, good-will, and love ; and to the ' head ,
of utility and progress. Ever since the dawn of
the Revolution, when Bunker's heights gleamed
with the red light of war: when our skies were
illuminated with the beacon fires of liberty ; when
the sun of American independence shone out bright
and warm ; ever since the patriots of 1770, and the
statesmen of that memorable dav, preached from
the rude hustings the sublime doctrine ol the rights
of man: the equality of the masses; old customs
were no longer sanctified 1 , old habits no more re
vered ; and the loyalty of prejudice for kingcraft,
priestcraft, and English laweraft. evaporated from
the bosoms of man. They knew nothing but the
law of God : -Do unto others as you would that
others should do unto you ; r ’ and the dogmas of a
Christian tyrant, whose code was not of Him who
came to bring peace on earth, were levelled to the
dust. The cause of Democracy has been onward
from that period to this. But Federalism is the old
serpent who would beguile us, ;is the devil did our
first parents, and with a mere song of gratification
to our animal nature. It has nothing for the heart
or intellect. It is the stationary party. It has
broached no new idea since the day of Hamilton,
and we challenge contradiction on this point. ' Its
dogmas are of a rotten British court, and its prin
ciples are entirely monarchical.

A Strange Class in Paris.
The city reader has no doubt frequently observ
ed numbers of a certain class of persons, men,
women and children, who. go about the streets of
New York, with a little bag or basket, and a small
iron rod hooked at the end, grubbing up rags, old
shoes, scraps of food, and every other description of
refuse than can be turned to the least account. —
These are invariably foreigners; and though the
occupation is a. low one, it is far, very far higher,
than to obtain a living by stealing Or any dishonest
In Patis, this class of people form a regular
trade, ank number altogether about 4,000. They
are called chiffoniers. They have among them
selves a| regular organization, and exercise their
vigilance and iron hooks in allotted districts, that
each may not interfere with the other. Indeed,
this bond of union is strong enough to resist any
invasion;.upon their rights, which the government
may threaten them with. In year 183*2, the
cholera -raged dreadfully in Paris, for a more con
genial locality for that destructive infection could
not be found t and, alarmed at its ravages; the mu
nicipal council made new and severe regulations
for cleansing the streets. The chiffoniers revolted
to a man ! They burnt the trumbrels of the con
tractors employed to clear the public thorough
fares, ransacked their contents for their hidden
wealth which they considered as their own, and
created a ferment which the unsettled state of the
lower orders in Paris threatened to swell to a new
Travellers tell us that in Cairo, which rivals
Paris in filth, the streets are cleaned by the tame
vulture,; the appearance of which, remarks a recent
writer -on Egypt, il trom the nature of its occupa
tion is disgusting in the extreme, though naturally
it is a noble object.’’ How much more disgusting
is the aspect of that far nobler being, man, when
covered with rags, picking out a wretched subsis
tence from the offal of the streets ! How degraded
when, instead of living on the spontaneous pro
ductions of nature, like the savage, he subsists on
the refuse of other men, left to putrify in the streets!
Of course, the Parisian chiffoniers live most
miserably. Some hire a room for the week.—
some a bed for the night,—just as may be conve
nient ; for a great portion of them are ambulatory,
and have no fixed residences, choosing the fields
around Paris for their summer beds, but patroni
zing the brokers' temporary accommodations in
winter; When they have a fixed habitation, it is
of the filthiest description. They desposit the dir
ty produce of their researches, and there they as
sort them in the midst, with the help of their chil
dren. The floor is scattered with rags, fragments
of broken meat, glass, paper, &c. These are
crowded in every corner of the room, and under
the bed; so that it is impossible to enter without
being almost stilled by a stench which habit alone
makes endurable. 10. increase me misaaiui «u us
ing from the place, most of the chiffoniers keep a
great dog, and sometimes two, in their chambers,
which accompany them in their nightly rounds.
Such is a brief description of a grade in Paris.
We might-offset the fact by a similar accounts ap

and beggars, is. if possible, still more extensive, and

Nat many years ago, a Polish lady of plebeian
birth, but of exceeding beauty ami accomplishments,
won the affections of a young nobleman, who. hav
ing her consent, solicited her from her father in
marriage, and was refused. We may, easily ima
gine the astonishment of the nobleman.
" Am 1 not,” said he, "of sufficient rank, to aspire
to your daughter's hand ?”
“ You are undoubtedly of the best blood in Po
And my fortune and reputation, are they not
" Your estate is magnificent, and your conduct
" Then, having your daughter's consent, how
should I expect a refusal
r " This, sir,” the father replied, "is my only child,
and her happiness is the chief concern of my life.
All the possessions of fortune are precarious ; what
fortune gives, at her caprice she takes away. I sse
no security for the independence and comfortable
living of a wife but one : in a word, I am resolved,
that no one shall be the husband of my daughter,
who' is not at the same time master of a trade /”
The nobleman bowed, ami retired silently. A
year or two after, the father was sitting at the door,
and saw approaching house wagons laden with
baskets, and at the head of the cavalcade, a person
in the dress of a basket-maker. And who do you
suppose it was? The former suiter of his daughter
—the nobleman, turned basket-maker. He was
now master of a trade, and brought the wares made
by Tiis own hands for inspection, and a certificate
from his employer in testimony of his skill.
The condition being fulfilled, iro farther obstacle
was opposed to the marriage. But the story' is not
yet done. The Revolution came—fortunes were
plundered—and lords were scattered as chaff before
the four winds of Heaven. Kings became beggars
—some of them the noble Pole sup
ported his wife, and her father in the infirmities of
age, by his basket making-industry.
- A poor jolly weaver in this city, not many years
ago, had a fortune left him by a distant and weal
thy relative, who "went off the handle” in England
rather unexpectedly. When the news came to the
poor fellow, as he sat clicket-te-elack at his loom,
he stopped still and said :
" Well, I suppose I must spend this money
The fortune, some twenty odd thousand dollars,
was duly realized and duly spent. For two brief
years did the poor weaver travel, make merry, and
riot upon the luxuries of the land. But two years
did the job, and he returned to his loom as poor as
a church mouse, but merry as a cricket, and worked
away again for his daily bread, perfectly satisfied
with the "good time” he had had while his fortune
lasted. His friends called him green, but he laughed
at their gibes and worked the hardef. In a twelve
month's time, off popped another relative, and the
news, post haste, came to the jolly weaver, that he
was again the possessor of a handsome fortune.
Stopping his loom, and looking sorrowfully on the
letter, he dcspondingly said : " Good Heavens 1 is it

The following remarks are from one who ought
to be good authority on such subjects—the Count
ess of Bl^ssington:
What a multiplicity of pretty things we women
require to render us what we consider presenta
ble ! and how few of us, however good-looking we
may chance to be, would agree with the poet, that
needs not the foreign aid of ornament,
but is, when unadorned, adorned the most.” Even
the fairest of the sex like to enhance the charms
of nature by the aid of dress, and the plainest hope
to become less so by its assistance.
Men are never sufficiently sensible of our hu
mility, in considering dress so necessary to increase
our attractions in order to please them, nor grate
ful enough for the pains we bestow in the attempts.
Husbands and lathers are particularly insensible
to this amiable desire on the parts of their wives
and daughters; and, when asked to pay the heavy
bills incurred in consequence of this praiseworthy
humility and desire to please, evince any feeling
rather than that of satisfaction. It is only admir
ers, not called upon, to pay these said bills, who
duly appreciate the cause and effect, and who can
hear of women passing whole hours in tempting
shops, without that elongation of countenance pe
culiar tc husbands and fathers.
I could not help thinking with the philosopher,
how many things I saw to-day that could be done
without. If woman could be made to understand
that costliness of attire seldom adds to beauty, and
often deteriorates it, a great amelioration in expense
could be accomplished
Transparent muslin, the cheapest of all mate
rials, is one of the prettiest, too, for summer's wear,
and, with the addition of some bows of dleicate
colorod riband, or a bouquet of fresh flowers, forms
a most becoming dress. The lowness of the price
of such, a robe enables the purchaser to have so
frequent a change of it, t that even those who are far
from rich may have half a dozen, while one single
robe of a more expensive material will cost more;
and having done so, the owner will think it right
to wear it more frequent than is consistent with
the freshness and purity that should ever be the
distinguishing characteristics in female dress, in
order to indemnify herself for the expense.
I was never more struck with this fact than a
short time ago, when I saw two ladies seated next
each other, both young and handsome; but one,
owing to the freshness of her robe, which was of
simple organdie, looked infinitely better than the'
other, who was quite as pretty, but who, wearing
a robe of expensive lace, whose whiteness had fal

Be wise, then, ye young and fair; and if, as I
suspect, your object btj, to please the lords of the

There is much of evil in the disposition to slander
ami traduce tfie character of others. We-ought
not to give heed to tales that vilify and and abuse
a neighbor. It is easy to be mistaken. It may be
that no such thing as is alleged against him has
ever been done, and innocence may be where guilt
It is godlike to awaken joy and relieve distress;
here there can be no mistake. Opportunities are
frequent whereby we may assist and benefit a fel
low-being. To produce smiles and gladness, in
stead oi weepiiig and sorrow, is certainly a Chris
tian act. How greatly do we err, when indulging
in an acrimonious and bitter temper towards those
whom we imagine, have injured and offended us.
It may be, and probably is, true, that they are
mistaken in relation to the supposed injury. We
ought not, as we too often do, seek to bite and to
devour one another. If we would reflect credit
upon ourselves, and confer honor upon humanity,
we must be charitable and forgiving. Relieved as
society is, in such a great measure, from the dread
ful evil and curse of intemperance, and enjoying
as we now do exemption from one of the most in
jurious practices that ever obtained among men, it
seems to be our duty more than ever to aim at a
high standard of moral excellence. Not only
should we speak no evil to one another, but we
should endeavor to do good to all. The means of
usefulness we are furnished with ; the object upon
which they may be brought to bear, and upon
which good may be produced, do constantly sur
round us. Let us, therefore, study to render our
fellow-men services that will be gratifying and ac
ceptable ; let us learn to forgive one another the
faults that have, been committed, and to be kind
gentle, and courteous to each other. Unless mutu
al concession is made, and mutal forbearance ex
ercised, much happiness will be lost.
