Transplanting Apple Trees.
All hardy fruit trees, more especially apples.
will bear a considerable portion of manure in
the soil, provided it has been previously well
intermixed with thesoil and thoroughly rotted.
A very successful experiment was made two
yeari ago by the writer, the results of which
are now very striking, by digging very large
holes for apple trees, and filling them with a
mixture of soil and rotted manure. A thorough
intermixture of the soil and manure was am.
ed; as they were gradually filled in, by means
f a large toothed iron rake. The holes were
bout seven feet in diameter, and a foot deep.
in setting out the trees, common garden earth
only was placed in contact with the root., con
_ sentiently the effect of the mixed rotted manure
was not visible the first year. The present
year. however. its influence has been moat ob
vious in the rapidgrowth of the shoots, and in
the uncommonly dark and rich hue of the large
and luxuriant foliage. , •
It is hardly necessary to add that the soil as
a matter of course was kept clean and in a
mellow state. and that the trees were tied to
an upright stake,.driven into the hole before
filling, to prevent shaking and looising - by the

The Capture of Jerusalem by the Crusaders.
The thirteenthof July, 1099,'was clear and
unclouded, ,as had heed nearly every day . since
the Christian army , first eat dowit before Jeru
Salem: and the sun 'fiat , poured his , scorching
rays with overwhelming'violence upon the holy
ity and . the encircling camp of the crusaders.—
More than a month had elapsed since the allied
chiefs of the crusading army resolved to try the
yffect of a seige upon •the. infidel garrison ; but
he city *4ll held out, and it now .became'evi-
dent to all that the attempt to reduce the enemy
would be vain ; indeed, the scarcity of provis
ions was far greater in the camp of ti,,,besiegers
than among the besieged ; and the ihiense heat
'of the sun, combined with the absolute want oh
water, was almost intolerable. The comman
ders saw the soldiers 01 their army dying by
hundreds, and the zeal of the survivors fast mel
ting away under the burden of their increasing_
privations ; and, at last, in a council of war, at
whir h were present all the nobles of the army,
and the officers of the two great orders, the
knights templars, and the knights hospitals, it
was decided that a final attempt'sbould be made
to take the city by storm ;"and Thursday the
thirteenth day of July was the day appointed for
In order to he enahled to- contend at greater
advantage with th2defenders, several huge w od
en titachines or towers had been cons'ruct e by
the christians, of height sufficient to eve look
le walk of the city ; they were seperated into
three divisions, which were filled with soldiers
and engineers ; the.upper floor- rovided with a
moveable drawbridge, sufficiently long to tym
nect the tower with the ramparts, which would
enable the beseigers to enter the city, in case
they should gain possession of a part of the wall.
The attack, which was commenced with great
violenee•e c arly-jn the morning, was continued
through the-day with unabated vigor; but the
assailants were much surprised and mortified to
find, at the evening, that their continued and vi
olent assaults had produced little or no effect
upon the fortifications of the
. city, owing to the
obstinate and well sustained defence of the en
my. Several of their largest towers had been
entirely consumed by the terrible and mysteri
ous Greek, fire. which was • hurled continually
from the city upon the dismayed soldiery anti
their huge wooden habitations. So closely had
every part of the defences been guarded by the
enemy, that, as yet, not, one christian soldier
had succeeded in gaining the ramparts of the
city, though numbers had perished in the at
tempt, One young knight of the order-of kw
plus, who had vowed to be the first who should
place his foot on the ramparts, had been twic e
repulsed by the infidels, on the very point of ful
filling his vow.
The attack was recommenced on the follow-
Mg morning, but watt lesi vigor than the pre
eeeding day. The crusaders, however, anima
ted _by the exortations and assurances of the
monks and. religious cutlers who accompanied
the army, continued to press the assault gallant
ly fur several hours, when seeing no prospect
of success, and disheartened by so Many repul
ses, they began to think of abandoning the at

In_nds the task of wresting the holy city from
the grasp of the unbelievers.
Ayhis critical point of time an event occur
red, ,i,vliettier the contrivance of sonic of the
more crafty chiefs to inspirit their dismayed for
ces or proceeding from another cause, had a most
powerful effect upon the minds of the disheart
ened soldiery. On a sudden the form of a
knight. clad to glittering armor appeared in full
view of the whole chriStian army, on the sum
mit of Mount Olives. He seemed by his ges
tures to urge them to renew the assault. A
shout arose from the crusading atmy at the
sight, and, rushing back to the walls. with loud
cries of . St. George!" they resumed the at
tack with tenfold violence.
A great number, among whom were the
young templar Englebert and his brother Ru
dolph, with many of the bravest commanders
took possession of one of the wooden towers ;
and the defenders of the rampart, surprised at
their unexpected and furious onset, gave way.
Godfrey - of Bonito!), followed by several other
commanders and nobles, was hastening to take
possession of the wall by means of the movea
ble bridge, when Englebert, regardless of the
laws of chivalry. and the respect which he owed
his chief, rushed by him, and stood upon the
rampart; the duke astonished at his presump
tion. paused for a moment, and Rudolph also
passed by him and joined his brother.
The two brothers. the duke and his followers
hastily descended into the city ; a few of the
first were immediatly cut down by the gallant
Englehert ; but after a short contest, they suc
ceeded in repulsing the enemy ; and Godfrey,
accompanied by a few of the most distinguished
warriors, leaving the remainder to preserve the
entrance, galloped toWard the - gate of St. Ste
phen, to admit the soldiers without.
Tn the ineantimt Englehert had been dragged
wounded and covered with blood, from the ranks
of the enemy by his brother, who vainly en
deavored to staunch his numerous and deep gash
es Englebert in vain entreated him to leave
him, and go to the aid of his weary and hard
pressed companions in the unequal contest,
which they were now sustaining with the rapid
ly increasing forces of the enemy.
" I have lived long enough. Rudolph," said
the expiring knight, " I have fulfilled my vow,
but I shall never see the holy - city in possession
of the holy soldiers of the cross. I shall never
worship at the tomb of the Savior; but yet—"
" Look up! look up ! brother," shouted Rio-
dolph ; " see Englehert, see !"
fhe dying man raised- himself up with diffi
culty, and gazed with a kindling eye upon the
scene before him. The encompassing body of
the Saracens was swept hack, as it seemed, by
some irresistible force. The clang of armor,
and the shouts of the combatants, came nearer.
The enemy rallied fora moment, then wavered,
and finally broke and fled in all directions be

roic Godfrey. Rudolph turned again to look

T"preceding figure is to represent the INSEN
SIBLE PERSPIRATION. his the great evac
uation for the impurities of the body. It will be noticed
that a thick cloudy mist issues from all points et theses.-
face, which indicates the wonderful process going on
within. This perspiration flows uninterruptedly when
we are in health, but ceases when we are sick. It should -
be the care of every one to see that it is not checked.—
Life cannot be sustained without it. It is . thrown off
from the blood and other juices of the body, and dispo
ses by this means. of nearly all impurities within use.—
The blood by this means only, works itselfpure. • The
language of Scripture is, "in theblopd is the life." If
it ever becomes impure, it may be traced directly to the
stoppage of the insensible perspiration. It never requires
any internal medicines to cleanse it, as it always puri
fies itself by its own heat and action, and throws off all
the offending humors, through the insensible perspiration.
Thus we see, all that is necessa-ry when the blood is
stagnant or infected, is toopen the pores, and it relieves
itself from all impurity instantly. Its own beat and vi
tality are sufficient, without one particle of. medicine,
except to open the pores upon the
see the folly of taking so much internal remedies. All
practicioners, however, direct their efforts to restore the
insensible perspiration, hut it seems to be not always the
-proper one. The Thompsonians for instance, steam's,
the lip'ropathist shrouds us in wet blankets, the Ho
mopathist heals out infinitissimals, the Allimathistbleeds
and doses us with mercury, and the blustering quack
gorges us with pills, pills, pills.
But one object only is in view, via.: to restore their -
sensible perspiration. If this con be done, they say. we
will take care of the rest. It will be seen, therefore,
that all physicians understand alike what is necessary to
a reeovery, how much they may differ as to the mode
of obtaining it.
To give some idea of the amount. and consequently
the importance of the insensible perspiration, we will
state that the learned Ur. Lewenhuck, andthe great Boer
heave, ascertained that five-eights of all we received in
to the stomach, passed off by this means. In other words,
if we eat and drink eight pounds per day, we evacuate
five pounds of it by the insensible perspiration.
This is none other than the used up particles of the
blood, and other juices, giving place to the new and
fresh ones, by carrying with it all the impurities within
up to the surface. 'l'o check this, therefore, is to retain
in the system five eights of all the virulent matter that
nature demands should leave the body. And even when
this is the case, the blood is of so active a principle, that
it determines those particles, to the skin,where they form
scabs, pimples, ulcers, and ether spots ; but if it is di
rected inwards, and fa:ls upon the lungs, the conse
quences are generally fatal.
By a sudden transition from heat to cold, the pores
are stopped, the perspiration ceases, and disease begins
at once to develope itself. Hence, a stoppage of this
flow of the juices, originates so many complaints. It is
through the surface that we imbibe nearly all our ills.
It is stopping the pores, that overwhelms mankind
with coughs, colds, and consumption. Nine-tenths of
the world die from diseases induced by stoppage of the
insensible perspiration. It is easily seen therefore, how
necessary is the flow of this subtle humor to the surface,
to preserve health. It cannot be stopped; it cannot even
be checked, without producing disease. The blood
and intestines must relieve themselves-Of all their worn.
out 'particles; and poisonous humors, and they must go
through the pores as nature designed.
Let me ask now, every candid mind, what course
seems the niost reasonable to pursue, and unstop the
pores, after they are closed and let the perspiration flow,
that the blood may relieve itself af its impurities I Would
you give physic to unstop the pores? Or would you
apply something that would do this upon the surface,
wherethe clogging, actually is? Would not this be com
mon sense? And yet I know of no physician who
makes an internal application to effect it. The reason I
assign is, that no medicine within their knowledge, is
capable of doing it. Under these circumstances, I pre
sent to physicians and to all others, a preparation that
has this power to the fullest extent.—lt is McAllister's
All-Herding Ointment or the World's Sake. It has
power to restore perspiration on the feet, on the head,
around oldsores, upon the chest, in short, upon any part
of the body, whether diseased slightly or severely. When
the perspiration is restored, it has power to penetrate the
lungs, liver, or any part of the human system, and to act
upon them, if they be diseased, by separating the in
flamed morbid particles therefrom, and expelling them
to the surface.
It has power to cause all external sores, scrofulous hu
mors. skin diseases, poisonous wounds to discharge their
putrid matter, and then heals them.
It is a remedy that sweeps off the whole catalogue of
cutaneous disorders, and restores the entire cuticle to its
It is a remedy that forbids the necessity of so many
and deleterious drugs taken into the stomach.
It is a remedy that neither sickens, gives inconveni
ence, or is dangerous to the intestines.
This remedy Is probably the only one now known,
that is capable of producing all these great results. Its
great value is in restoring- at once, the circulation of the
juices when checked, or sans ed by cold or other
causes. It preserves and efends the surface from all
derangement of its functions, while it keeps open the
channels for the blood to avoid all its impurities and dis
pose of all its useless particles. There is a connection,
harmony, and feasibility in all that defies contradiction.
It is a simple, but wonderful principle that preserves in
healthy operation the entire machinery of our being. It
indissolubly holds together the surface and the internal
viscera, the internal viscera and the surface. They are
inseparably connected and cannot be disjoined. The
surface is the outlet of five-eights of the bile and used
up matter within. It is pierced with millions of open
ings to relieve the intestines. Stop up these pores, and
death knocks at your door. It is rightly termed All-
Healing, for there is scarcely a disease, external or in
ternal, that it wilt not benefit. It will he found the most
useful as well as the cheapest family medicine in the
world. I have used it for the last fourteen years with
success without a parallel. I haveused it for all disease
of the chest, consumption, liver, and the most dangerous
of internal maladies. I have used it in cases of extreme
peril and hazard, involving the utmost danger and re
sponsibility, and I declare before Heaven and man, that
not in one single ease has lit failed to benefit, when the
patient was within the reach of mortal means.
I never, to my recollection had more than five or six''
among the thousands who have used it, say that it was
nut favorable to their complaint. On the contrary !have
had hundreds return voluntarily, and in the warmest
and'most pathetic language speak in its praise. I have
had physicians, learned in the profession; I have had, mi
nister. of the gospel, Judges on the bench, aldermen
and lawyers, gentlemen of the highest erudition and
multitudes of poor, use it in every variety of way, and
there has been but one voice, one united. universal voice
saying " McAllister your 'ointment is good."
Conawnption.—Of all diseases, we find this the moat
important, and concerning which we meet with the most
opposition. It can hardly be credited that a salve can
have more effect upon the lungs, seated as they are with
in the system. But we soy once for all, that this oint
melt will reach the lungs 'quicker than any medicines
that can be' given internally. 'Every - body consents to
the fact that if healing medicine could be applied on
the lungs, there would be' great hopes of recovery. The
difficulty is to get the medicine there.• Now the Salve
has the wonderful virtue of extracting the - putrid hu-
MOM from'all external sores by causing them to dis
charge. In like manner it operates upon hlternal Wee.
tions by driving all the impurities through-the perm to
the surface. - Thu with consumption, if placed upcin
the ebest, it penetrates directly to the lungs, separates
the poisonous particles that are consuming - them and e;--
pels them from the system.
i. ft is ;he simplest and most rational precut ills/catkin,'
if one has the medicine. capable of doing it.
Irialing - Piptment, possesses this power to the ullcat
extent: kneed not say that it is curing persons of Con
sumption continually, although we are told it de foolish
mess. I care not what is said, so long as I can cure se
veralthoussnd persons yearly. If this medicine was in
•the hands of some patent medicine brawlers, they would

Saafula or King's Evil.—This disease is really in.:
veterate, and hard to be subdued. It is generally stated
in the sides of the neck, behind the eats and under the
chin, yet scarcely any part of the body is exempt. It
sometimes falls upon the lunge and produces consump
tion. It is a dreadful circumstance, that this disease is
transmitted from parents to children. The &dee will
extract all the morbid matter by causing the soMe to dis
charge; and,then let thendhe Solar Tinctitre be'used to
drive it to one point, which done, a continuance of the

the safest and mosteffectuat of any method. It should

cured persons of the Head-Ache of 12 years standing
and who had it regularly every week, so that vomiting
often took place. It cured the wife of a man who laugh
ed in my face for proposing such a•cure. and who now
would not be without it for the best farm in the State. If
any one will take the trouble to call I will give his name.
Deafness and Ear-Ache are helped with the like suc
cess as also Ague in the face.
Cold Feet.—Consumption, liver complaint, pains in
the chest or side, falling of the hair, one or the other
always accompanies cold feet. - It is a sure sign of dis
ease in the system to have cold feet. Some persons are
totally unable to get them warm, and endure much suf
The salve will restore the insensible perspiration and
thus cure every case. It is infallible for this.
Asthma, Tightness of Breath.—lf this disease is not
hereditary and produced by the malformation of the chest,
the salve will cure it.
Dyspepsia.—One would suppose a salve would not
effect this disease much but the All-Healing- Ointment
will cure two sooner than any internal remedy will cure
&,re Eyes. —The inflamation and disease always lies
back of the ball of the eye in the socket. Hence the util
ity of all remedies that are used upon the lids. The
virtue of any medicine must reach the seat of inflam
mation or it will do little good. This salve if rubbed
on the temples will penetrate directly into the socket
and infuse all its virtues upon the disorder. The pores
will be opened, a proper perspiration will be created and
the disease will soon pass off to the surface. How
easy and how natural ! It is as perfect and valuable as
it is simple and philosophical.
Sore Lips, Chapped Hands 4c.—l sell a great deal
of salve to Seamen, who say it is the only thing they
can depend on to cure their raw hands, when exposed
to the weather at sea. It acts like a charm in these cow
plaints. Two or three applications CUTCS.
Pimples on the face, freckles, tan, masculine skin,
gross surface.—lts lirat action is to expel all humor. It
will not cease drawing till the face is free from any mat
ter that may be lodged under the skin and frequently
breaking out to the surface. It then heals. When
there is nothing but grossness, or dull' repulsivesurface,
it begins to soften and soften until the skin becomes as
soft and delicate as a child's. It throws a freshness and
blushing color upon the now white transparent skin
that is perfectly enchanting. Sometimes in case of Freck
les it will first start out those that have lain hidden and
seen but seldom. Pursue the salve and all will soon dis
The reason for this wonderful change in a lady's
face is that it excites into natural and healthy activity
the Insensible Perspiration, while it renovates and re
news the surface, and leaves the skin in as lively and
delicate a condition as the most fastidious could desire.
his put up in fine jars and beautifully scented on pur
pose for the toilet.
Burns.—Life can always be saved if the vitals are
not injured. I have so many testimonials for the cure
of this complaint that I could fill a book.• I suppose
there is not a family in'the United States, that would
consent to be without this salve a single day if they
knew its balm in healing Burns alone. It extracts the
pain and leaves the place_ withouta scar..
Quinsy sore arcade Influenza, Broneleiliz. —There
is not an internal remedy in existence that will cure
these , disorders as quick as the salve. It opens the pored
on the neck and draws off all the inflammation and im
pure juices, and a few days will see the patient well.
It is sovereign in these cases.
Piles.—The salve acts upon the piles as upon sore
eyes. There is an inflammation which must be drawn
from the parts. The salve does this.
Hernia or Rupture.—This salve has cured some very
bad cases of rupture, and although it might pot all, yet it
would be wise to try it. It is a peculiar complaint, but
it may be helped some, if not cured entirely. I have
not the shadow of a doubt that it would cure thousands
if the trial was made, who believe no medicine of the
least benefit. "
Two shillings worth would satisfy any one, whether
it would do good •ir not.
Worms.—lf parents knew how fatal most medicines
were to children taker, inwardly, they would be slow to
resort to them. Especially " niercurial lozenges," call
ed "medical Irzenges," verrnifuges," pills, &c. Even
were it possible to say positifdy that worms were pm
sent, it is lot safe. The truth is, no one min trll..inea
rig/4, when -worms are present. Of coinse the remedy
is not applicable to the complaint. Now let me say to
parents, that this salve will always tell if a child has
worms. Let it be rubbed on the neck and chest, to keep
them from going up, and then down on the bowels and
they will soon leave. ft will drive every vestige of them
away.' This is a simple and safe cure. No injury can
come of it in any way. But should it be cholic, infla
tion of the bowels, or wipe of the intestines, it w ill ef
fectually cure them as the worms.
Thereis probably no medicine on the face of the earth
at once so sure and safe in the expulsion of worms.
It would be cruel, nay wicked, to give internal doubt
tit medicines, so long as a harmless, certain, and effect
ual e4crnal one could he had.
Chalk, Pain. or kflarninnlion of the Boutels.—Let
the salve be ruhbed in and heated with the fire or hot
flat irons, and ell pains and difficulty will soon cease.
SwellingS of the joints, or weakness, or any affection
of the bone, nothing is so good for as this salve.
Poisons.—r never. knew anything so - good as this
salve. It causes the poison to discharge immediately,
and leaves not the slightest cause of alarm. Poisons by
nails, bites of animals, or burns, it removes when no
thing else will.
Toilet.-4 have it done up in fine order for the dres
sing case. Although I have said little about it as a hair
restorative, yet! will stake it against the world They
may bring their oils far and near, and mine will restore
the hair two cases to their one. These are no idle words,
for I am ready to back it with any reasonable amount.
Old Sores, Morlificalion, Ulcers, 4-e.—There is no ef
ectual way of curing Om, but drawing off" the putrid
matter. To merely dry it up would only endanger one'.
health more. That some sores-are an outlet to the int
purities of the system, -is the only reason, because they
cannot pass off through the natural c'hannels of the In
sensibk Perapinotion • If such sores are healed up; the
impurities must bare some otheroutlet, or it will endan
ger life. This is the reason why it is impolitic to use the
common salvesof the day in such eases. For they have
no power to open other revenues, to let off all this mor
bid matter, rind the consequences are always fatal. This
salve will always provide for such emergencies. There
need be no fear. It is perfect.
Broken Breast.—Persons need never have a broken
breast. The salve will always prevent it, if used in sea
Liver Cempfaint.—LPersons having this complaint fie.
quently have eruptions of the hands, lime and other
parts, and Bever once this k that it arises from the liver.
Their utter inability to remove these irruptions, proves
their misapprehension of the disco-du. Such must use
it first on the feet, then- wear it on fiat chest, and the
difficulty will FOOll go away.
