A SONG OF SPEING.
BY PAUK BENJAMIN.
Love and Spring are born together,
Twins of nature, soft and fair;
Basking in the pleasant weather,
Sporting, in the balmy air.
Mu sic of the birds returning
From the far-off southern bovvers,
Fills the heart with tender yearning
For the bliss that once was ours.
When we sate and heard, enchanted,
Songs of fond romantic lore ;
And the fields and groves seemed haunted
With these faries, famed of yore.
Happy youth ! enjoy thy season,
Fcr thou, too, art in thy spring ;
Fancy is unchilled by reason,
itMind th" blossoming.
Let thine eyes, enraptured, ponder
All that skies and waters bring ;
All that nature joys to squander
In the yielding lap of spring.
Let thy heart, the transport feeling, '
Gratefully with lore o'erflow ;
Like a stream that long congealing,
Melts now in the sunny glow.
Love and spring are born together,
Twins of nature, soft and fair;
Basking in the pleasant weather,
Sporting in the balmy air.

phia Medical House—Established 20 years
ago by Dr. KINKELIN, rorner ol Thirdandl/nion
Sts. between Spruce and Pine, Philadelphia, Pa,
Are apprised that Dr. KINKELIN confines, his
practices to a particular branch of medicine, which
engages hie undivided attention, lie cautions the
unfortunate against the abuse of mercury; thous
ands are annually mercuralized out of life. Re
cent affections are promptly extinguished.
TWENTY YEA Rfe OF EXFERJENCE
In the treatment of a class of diseases hitherto ne
glected and imperfectly understood, has enabled
Dr. RINKKLIN, (Author of a work on Self Pres
ervation,) to prove that nine tenths of the causes
ot nervous debility, locel and constitutional weak
ness, mental and physical suffering, are traceable
to certain habits, forming the most secret yet
deadly aad fatal springs of domestic misery and
TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE.
There is an evil habit sometimes indulged in by
boys, in solitude, often growing up with them to
manhood, and which, if not reformed in due time,
not only begets serious obstacles to matrimonial
happiness, but gives rise to a series of protracted
insidious, and devastating affections. Few of
those who give way to this pernicious practice are
aware of the const quences, until they find the ner
vous system shattered, feel strange and unaccount
able feelings, and vague fears in the mind.
The unfortunate thus affected becomes feeble, is
unable tolaoor with accustomed vigor, or to apply
' his mind to study : his step is tardy and weak, lie
is dull, irresolute, and engages in bis sport with
less energy than usual.
If he emancipate himself before the practice has
done its worst, and enter matrimony, bis marriage
is unfruitful, and his sense tells him that ihis is
caused by his early follies. These are considera
tions which should awaken the attention of those
sim lariy situated.
Requires the fulfilment of several conditions, in
order that it may be really the cause of mutual
happiness. Could the veil which covers the ori
gin of domestic wretchedness he raised, and its
true source in every instance disclosed—in how
many could it be traced to physical disqualifica
tions anu their attendant disappointments ! Apply
then while it is jet time, in order to have your tin
-trnngand re axed organization rebraced, revivi
fied and strengthened
He who places himseif under Dr. KINKELIN'S
treatment may religiously confide in his honor as
a gentleman, and rely upon the assurance, that the
secrets of Dr. K's. patients will never be disclosed.
Young mau —let no false modesty deter vou from
making your case known to one'who, from educa
tion and respectability, can certainly befriend you.
Too nu.ny think they will conceal the secret in
their owii hearts, and cure themselves. Alas !
how oiten is this a fatal delusion, and how many
a promising young man, who might have been an
ornament to society, has faded from the earth.
Strictures ol the uretha are rapidly removed by
the application of a new therapeutical aaent, used
viiiy by Dr. K. Weakncaa and constitutional de
bility promptly cured, and full vigor restored.

lit on hand. When I commenced giving the medi
' cine to my son Edgar, he had from one to three fits
per day. IJe has now taken the medicine over five
months, and lias had, I think, but two fits in that
time, and those very light. His body and mind are
very much improved: and by the blessing of God,
I feel that 'lie medicine will restore his body and
mind to their wonted activity. He is 28 years old,
and has ha< fits over 12 years, which have been
very frequent, and vety destritolive to his constitu
tion and miud. Hundreds of dollars hn.ve been ex

brought out to the surlace. A Iter taking the medi
cine a few days, she had a fine rrop of measeles,

almost daily. She and her father concur with me
in saying that we believe the medicine las or will
work a perfect cure. Ia so gave ihe medicine to
Miss Jane Henderson and Aris Carby, who have
had fits almost daily for a number of years. Their
fits have ceased and I believe the medicine will
have the desired effect. Much money has been ex

Book for lite Afflicted. Containing an outline of
the Origin, Progress, Treatment and Cure of every
form of Disease, contracted by Promiscuous Sexu
al Intercourse, by self-abuse, or by Sexual Excess,
with advice for their prevention, written in a fa
miliar style, avoiding all medicinal technicalities,
and every thing that would offend the ear of decen
cy, from the result of some twenty years of suc
cessful practice, exclusively devoted to the cure of
diseases of a delicate or private nature.
To which is added, receipts for the cure of the
diseases, and a treatise on Ihe causes, symptoms
and cure ot Fever and Ague, for twenty-five cents
a copy , six copies one dollar ; will be forwarded to

"This is, without exception, the most eompre
benisve and intelligible work published on the class
of diseases of which it treats. Avoiding all tech
nical terms, it addresses itself to the reason of the
readeis. It is free Irom all objectionable matter,
and no parent however fastidious, can object to pla
cing it in the hands of his sons. The author has
devoted many years to the treatment of the various
compliments treated of, and "with 100 little breath
to puff," and "too little presumption to impose,"
he has offered to the world Si ihe merely nominal
price of 25 cents, the fruits ot some twefity years
most successful practice " —llera'd.

A Presbyterian clergyman in Ohio, in writing of
"Hunter's Medical Manual," says: "Thousands
upon thousands of our youth, by avtl example and
the influence of the passion, have been led into
the habit of self-pollution without realizing the sin
and fearful consequences upon themselves and their
posterity. The constitutions of thousands who are
raisiDg families have been enfeebled, if not broken
down, and they do not know the cause or the cure.
Any thing that can be done so to enlighien and in
fluence the public mind as to check and ultimately
tc remove this wide spread source of humau
wretchedness, w uld confer the greatest blessing
next the religion of Jesus Christ, on the present
and coming generations, Intemperance, (or the use
of intoxicatiug drinks,) though it has slain thous
ands upon thousands, is not a greater scourge to
the btiman race. Accept my thanks on behalf of
the afflicted, and, oelieve me, your co-worker in
the good work you are so actively engaged in."
