Loss of Appetite, Despondency, Costiveuess, Blind and Bleeding Piles. In all Nervous, Rheumatic, and Neuralgic Affections, it has iu numerous instances proved highly beneficial, and in others effected a decided cure. This is a purely vegetable eonipouud, prepared on strictly scientific principles, nfter the manner of the celebrated H-.Hand Professor. Boerhave. Its reputation at home pro duced its introduction here, the demand commencing with those of the Fatherland scattered over the face of tills mighty country, many of whom* brought with them and handed down the tradition of its value. It is now offered to the American public, hi owing that its truly wonderful medicinal virtues must be achunoledged. It is particularly recommended to those persons whose constitutions may have been impaired by the continuous use of ardent spirits, or other forms of dissipation. Generally instantaneous in effect, it finds its way directly to the seat of life, thrilling and quickening every nerve, raising up tho drooping spirit, and, in fact, infusing new health and vigor in the system. NOTlCE.—Whoever expects to find this a beverage wid be disappointed; but to the sick, weak and low spirited, it will prove a grateful aromatic cordial, nosscssed of singular remedial properties. READ CAREFULLY! The Genuine highly concentrated Boerhave's Holland Bitters is put up in half-pint bottles only, and retailed at ONE DOLLAR per 1 Kittle, or six bottles for FIVE DOLLARS.

The Datne of Yt lturno must now be added to that ot other placon an 1 things which have heeii made immortal by tire and blood, and destruction ttnd death- Most great battles take their names from small places, which would never have .been beard of by many people hut for their having been selected by fortune as the spoisors uf great ooin bat-i. We now have ample details of the last graud battle fought in Christendom, and they show that it is worthy of the cause of Italy, and of the reputation of Garibaldi, and of the valor of his soldiers. The action was fought on the first dhy of October, and was brought on by a forward movement made by the ex-king of Naples, who seems to have come to the conclusion that he must help hiicseifif he wouldfbe helped by others There was an abl-Ir head than his in the work, but he showed! a hrayery and a capac ity in the battle that has half redeemed his fame. The combat lasted for many hours, and though the patriots were by no means deficient in valor orfcoolness, it is not unjust to them lo say, that |f anything had happen ed to keep Garibaldifahsent, they would have been beaten. Nor would defeat, though it might have been fuial to their cause, have been disgraceful to them as men and soldiers, for their enemies ware twiee as numerous as they were, and were well-trained warriors, supplied with ail things that were calculated 13 make them efficient in battle. But noth ing could stand up against the energy of the patriots and the genius of Garibaldi. Nei ther high discipline, nor desperate courage, nor good leading, nor splendid equipments, Dor double strength in numbers, could avail in opposition to ihe delivering army. That the latter did not buy their victory cheaply, or win it over inferior men, is apparent from the fact that they lost 4,500 men, or Dearly one-third of their whole number, a propor tion of loss tha£baß but few parallels in mil itary history. The Neapolitans, with 30,000 in the field, did Dot lose so many men as were lost by the Garihaldians, who were not above 15,000 strong. It was downright hard fighting that did most of the work, the butt and the bayonet settling the fate of many hundred brave soldiers, whose souls should rest in peace. We have reports uf further actions, the Bourbonists attacking the Garihaldians and be og again beaten, l'he ex-ktng evidtn r y aimed to make au impression at Warsaw, where the Emperors cf Austria and liui-sia' and the Priuce Regent of Prussia, aud some lesser potentates, met on the 20th of October, to take the affiirs of Europe into considera tion. will the yiew to help despotism, ifu he helpabie. It he can contrive to hold on tu his remnant of Naples, his imperial and roy al brethren may give him aid to recover the whole of "he two kingdoms forfeited by the tolly and tyranny of him-elf and his house. Remarkable Lakes On the top of a ridge of mountains in P or- tugal, called Estrella, are two lakes of great extent and depth, especially one of them, which is said to be unfathomable. What is chiefly remarkable iu them is, that they are calm when the sea is calm, and rough when that is stormy. It is, therefore, probub : e that they have a subterranean coinniunica tion with the ocean ; and this seems to be confirmed by the pieces of ships they throw up, though, almost forty miles distant from the sea. There is another extraordinary lake in this country ; which, before a storm, is said to make a frightful rumbling noise, that may he beard at a distance of several miles. And we are aiso toid of a pool or fountain, called "Fervencias," about twenty-four miles from Coimbra, that absorbs not only wood, but tbe lijrhest bodies thrown into it, sueh as cork, straw, feathers, etc., which sink and are never stten again. To these vye may add a remarakble spring near Estremos, which petrifies woou, or rath er encrusts it with a case of stone ; but the most remarkable circumstance is, that in summer it throws up water enough to turn several mills, and in the winter is perfectly dry.— Smith's Wonders. A Strong Case At a recent term of the Supreme Court in Bangor, the case of Newoomb vs. inhabitants of Newburg. for damages for alleged defect iu ihe highway, came up for trial, when tbe I defendants put in the following specifications | of defence: 1. No such town as Newburg; 2 No sucn man a Newcomb ; 3. No road; 4. No bole iu the road ; 5. No borse ever injured ; 6. Horse injured did not belong to plain tiff; 7. Plaintiff's finger not hurt; 8. Plaintiff's finger injurned two years be | fore; 9 PI iintiff injured his finger by pound ing it with a ro-k two years previous to the alleged cause ot action against town, in an ticipation of anu preparation for the same It is quite unnecessary to add that the ver ; diet was for defendants. fiegf* The misery of idleness is nearly as I manifest in high life as in tha ragt aud filth i of extreaia poyerty Happy Marriages 111 assorted marriages are, in a great num ber of instances, the result of parental re missness, in not beginning early enough to instil into the mind of the child such an aver sion to certain trails of character, and such a high estimate of certain moral qualities, as a true wisdom would dictate in the premises. It certainly is rot an impossible thing to impress the youthful mind with an uncon querable repugnance against a character the most strining trait of which is a contemnti ble trickery, an abhorrent profanity, a little settled meanness, or a degrading animalism. Just as well may tho young heart be fortified against loving the miser, the spendthrift and gamester—against those whose prominent exhibitions demonstrate au irascibility, in all absorbing selfishness or stony-heartedness ; Of a contempt of honest labor, of religion, or of pecuniary obligation. While our children may be early taught an aversion to such traits of character, their adm;ration may be cultivated for all that is manly and honora hie and self sacrificing ; for all that is true and.pure and generous *, (or all who are in dustrious diligent and economical. It is unwise to hope for domestic happi ness in the possession of a single favorable trait of character ; it is better to look for a combination, and they are to be most con gratulated who can discern and woo and win the possessor of the largest number of good points. First of all, the man whom you love, the woman whom you adore, should poseess a high sense of . light ar.d wrong;— next, bodily health ; and, thirdly, moral biavery. a courage to be industrious, eco nomical and self-denytng. With the:e three traits, principle, health, arid a soul that can do and dare all that one ought to, domestic felicity will abide. None ought to marry, who cannot command the means of enabling them to live in comfort according to their station In life, without grinding economies. It is useless to talk about love in a eottage. The little rascal always runs away when there is r.o bread and butter on the table. — There is more love ic a full flour-barrel than iu all the roses and posies and woodbines that ever grew. No mechanic should marry until he is mas ter of his trade ; nor a professional man un til his income is adequate to the style uf life which he determines upon ; nor the mer chant until his clear anuual gains are equal to his domestic expenditures, unless indeed there are, in either case, independent, and unconditional sources of income.— Hall's Journal of Health Arnold s Love of Home Smiles speaks of the attachment which the exellent and lamented Lr. Arnold of Rugby lull for the beauties of his home. It reminds us of what Berwick, who was animated by a simil-r spirit, said— 4 I had rather herd sheep on Micklehauk Brae than he premier of England." Interested as Arnold wis in the ongoings of the outer world, he intensely ecjoyed his ..wo fauii'y and fireside. At Laleham, at Rugby, hut ah ve a'l in hi- country home at Fox How, n -ar llydal, ir, Westmorland, bis heart rati over with expressions of joy and deep delight. F. x How wa- the paradise to whicb he retreated to the turm >il of the world. 44 It is with a mixed feeling of so lemnity and tenderness," he said, 41 that I regard my mountain nest, whose surpassing sweeatnes3, I think I may safely say, adds a positive happiness to every one of my wa king hours passed in it." VV hen absent from Fox Iluw, it "dwelt on his memory ts a vision of beauty from one vacation to an other and when present there, he felt that 41 no hasty or excited admiration of a tourist could he compared with the homely delight of having the mountains and streams as fa miliar objects, connected with all the enjoy ments of home, ones family, one's books, and one's friends." Among the delicious scen ery of Italy he said, that '* if he stayed more than a day at the most beautiful spot in the world, it would only bring on a longing for Fox llow and it was his repeated wish that, when he died, 14 his bones should go to Grasmere churchyard, to lie under the yews which Wordsworth planted, and to have the Rotha, with its deep and silent pools, pass ingby." Tbe Impudence of the Purpie Eartin As is the case with many familiar birds, such as the robin, tho sparrow, and the swal low, the purple mar in is a most fearless and withal quarrtls.-uie bird, greatly delighting in annoying any other bird that may happen to bo larger than itself, and trusting to its great command of wing for impunity.— Hawks of all kinds, crows, jays, aud simt'ar birds live in constant terror of the purple martin, which no sooner sees the hateful form of a bav k or crow in the distance, that it flies at him savagely, and makes such rapid and vicious pounces, that the wretched victim is fain to escape as he best can front the attacks of his small but determined foe. Even the eagle enjoys no immunity from the persecu tion of the purple martin, which dashes at tbe regal bird with us much ascurunee as if it were only chasing a. pigeoc. I®" Ic is a little thing to speak a phrase of I common comfort, which, by daily use, has lost its sense ; yet, ou the ear of him who thought to die ucmourned, 'twill fall like 1 musio, A Romantic Story. A gentleman who has been many years en gaged in the persecution of inilitaiy claims, fell in accidentally with a case in which both a man ar.d his wife reeeived pensions for Revolutionary services. The singularity of the circumstances struck him so forcib'y that he instituted an inquiry, ami elicited trom an old lady, the sole surviving descendant, the following facts. [We state them sub stantially, hut our infurmaut not being pres ent it is possible that we mat he incorrect in some insignificant partiulars.] Early in the Revolutionary war, a man named Lane (we thir.k) enlisted in a comja ny raised in the neighborhood of Manches ter. to serve three years. He went with his regiment to the North, and there joined Washington's army. Taking part in all the previous battles, he was severely wounded at Brandywine or Germatitown ; and during the battle, and after, was taken care of by a brother soldier, to whom he had become greatly attached, and who belonged to the same company with himself. The term of service having expired, these two soldiers re turned home, devoted and inseparable friends. In the meantime the tide of war rolled to the South,and the couple had scarce ly reached their destination, when they again enlisted to serve in General Lincoln's arinv, at that time engaged in the seige of Savan nah. Our readers well know that Lincoln was cooped up in Charleston and compelled to surrender, after a long seige, to tho royal forces under Sir Henry Clinton. Throughout this seige Lane and hisfrieod stood to their post like heroes, and did their duty bravely. At last Lane's comrade was wounded in turn, and was carried off the field in the arms of his devoted friend. What must have been the amazement of Lane on discovering that the brave comrade, who bad so long fought by his side and nursed him so tenderly when be was wounded, through the report of the attending surgeon, was a woman ! It appears that she had accident ally fallen in with him sompwhere, and had formed a strong attachment lo him. At the same time, from some cause or other, she had made so little impression upon him that he did not recognize her in the least when he .afterwards met her disguised as a soldier. — She was in despair when Lane enlisted, and under the influence of that feeling she fled from her parents' home, donned the Conti nental uniform, and followed him to the wars. What folio wed was a proper final to such a romance. The wtuoded woman re covered, and as soon as the twain were re leased from captivity they became one. Tbey lived happily for many years, and left sev eral children. Iscidents of this nature— disguised damsels following their lover to war in the capacity cf pages—were great fa ; vorites with all the old romance writers. — Nevertheless, we feel assured that the tale we have recorded is true in all essential par ticulars. At any rate, both the man and his wife received pensions for services rendered as soldiers, until the days of their d jath re spectively. The Age of Forty-Six Thomas Hood died at the age of forty-six, at the very moment when he had excited the greatest expectations. There seems to he a fatality at this period of life for a certain class of intellects, nearly as great as that which has rendered the age of thirty-seven dangerous to the higher ranks of artistic ge nius—to Raphael, to Mozait, to Burns, to Byron. It is the grand climateric of a sol dier's aud the statesman's life. At forty-six Pitt gave up the ghost, E.ud passed away in tuepiimeof bis powers. At forty six Na poleon lost the battle of Wa'erloo, and end ed his career. At forty-six Wellington won that battle, and may he said almost to have commenced his civil career. At torty-seven Nelson's hour had ootne at Trafalgar. In literature, we find that Spencer died at for ty-six, Addison at forty-seven, Goldsmith at forty-six, Hood at lorry six. Ne'son's bus' Worshipped as an Idol Hayiien papers of a recent date mention the following extraordinary circumstance.— 4- Among the Aeul mountains there has been found, in an old house, a bust of Lord Nelson It is of white marble, somewhat stained by time and neglect. Nelson is represented in his costume of Admiral and bears on his breast five decorations. One in commemo ration of tbe battle of Aboukir, has the in scription : 44 Rear Admiral Lord Nelson ot the Nile." Ar other medal bears the words: ,4 A!mighty God has blessed his Majesty's glory 1" 44 This bust, interesting in its artistic and historical association, was found on an a'tar devoted to the fetish worship, where for half a century, it has been reverenced as the "Deity of the Mountain Streams. ' The names of tbe sculptors were 44 Coale and Leary, of Lambeth." " Thus for fifty years the bust of an Eng lish Admiral has been worshipped asa hea then idol." 44 The finder of the statue has refused an offer ol five hundred dollars for it." ■SsS™ Ha gentleman should unite iu part nership with a blacksmith, would be be le gally connected with a forgery?

NUMBER 50 A Train Saved SupernaturalJy The Xenia (Ohio) Kites is publishing a fiprips of reminiscences by an engineer. In No. 24 of his series the writer gives the following a f artling incident ; I was running a night express train of ten cirs—eight passenger and two b.tggage cars, and all were well loaded. I was be hind time, and wis anxious to make a cer tain point ; therefore I was using every ex ertion, and putting the engine to the utmost speed of which it was capable. *1 was on a -ection of the road usually oonsidered the best running ground on the line, and was endeavoring to make the most of it, when a Conviction struck me that I must stop. A something'seemed tot tell me that, to go ahead was dangerous, and that I must stop if I would save my life. I looked at my traiD, and it was all right. I strained my eyes and peered into tho darkness, and could see no signal of.'danger, and there I could see five miles in the daytime. 1 lis tened to the workiog engine, tried the water, looked at the scales, aDd all was right. I tried to laugh myself out of what I then considered to be childish fear , but like a Baoquo's ghost, it would not down on my bidding, but grew stronger in its bold upon me. 1 thought of the ridicule I would have heaped upon mc if did stop j but it was all of no avail. The conviction that I must,. stop grew stronger and stronger, and resolved to stop ; I shut off and blew the whistle for down brakes accordingly. I came to a dead halt got off and went ahead a little way, with out saying a word to any body what was the matter. I had my lamp in my hand, and I had gone only about sixty feet when I saw what convincd me that premonitions are sometimes possible. 1 dropped my lan tern from my nerveless grasp and sank on tbe track utterly uuable to stand ; for there was a switch, the thought of which had nev er entered my mind, as it had never been used since I had bben on tbe road, and was known to be epiked, but which was now open to lead me off the track. This switch led iDto a stone quarry, from which stone for bridge purposes had been quarried, and the switch was left there but was always kept locked and tbe ewiteii rail spiked, i'et here it was wide open, and, had I not obeyed my premonition—my warning—call it what you may—l should have run into it, and at the I end of the track, only about ten rods long, my heavy engine and traiu, moving at the rate of forty-live miles and hour, would have come in collision with a eolid wall of rock eighteen feel high. The consequences had I done so, can neither be imagined nor des cribee ; but they could, by no possibility, have been otherwise than fatally horrid.— This is my experience in getting warnings from a source that I know not aud cannot divine." Sympathy of Sound. It is owing to the sympathetic commu nication" of vibrations, that persons with clear and powerful voices have been able to break a large glass tumbler by singing close to its fundamental note. We have beard of case where a person broke no fewer than twelve glasses," in rapid succession. The sympathy of vibrations, or the ten dency of one vibrating body to throw anoth er into the very same state of vibration, shows itself remarkably in tne case of two clocks fixed on the same shelf or wall. It was known near a century ago that two clacks set agoing on the same shelf will af fect each other. The pendulum of one will stop that of the other ; and the pendulum of the one stopped, after a certain time, yill resume its vibrations, and in its turn, stop the other pendulum. These effects are clearly produced by the small vibrations communicated from the one pendulum to the other, through the shelf or rail, or plank on which they both rest. It has also been found that two conflicting sounds produce silence, as two converging rays of light produce darkness. A Charge as is a Charge Judge Jonah Joels recently delivered the following charge to the jury, in ca6e of Elim Church, for stealing : "Jury, you kin go out, an d don't show your ugly mugs in here till you find a ver dict. If you can't find one of your own, git the one the last jury used." The jury retired, and after an absence of fifteen, minutes, returned with a verdict of suicide in the ninth degree and the fourth verse. Then Judge Jonah Joels pronounced upon Elim Church, this sentence: "Elim Church stand up and face the mu sic. You are found guilty of suicide for stealing. Now this court sentences you to pay a tine of two shillings, to 6huve your bead with a bagganet in the barricks, and if you try to cave in the heads of any of the jury you'll catch thunder, that's all. Your fate will be a warning to others, and in con elusion, Sheriff, bring me a pint of red eye— I'm awful tbursty."
