Choctaw Courtship—Privilcg.3 of Squaws.
Courtship is invariably begun liy the female.
If she fancies a young man, she firakes what is
technically called the first banter. This is done
by slyly sqeezing the hand or gently touch
ing his foot at the camp fire. If a man should
venture upon any of the little preliminaries,
without being‘ure of a reciprocal partiality the
indignant maid would immediately assail him
with a stick, and this would be the signal for a
general assault by all the squaws around on the
presuming lover, who, unless he fled, would he
beaten without mercy. Thus, even in this
rude shape, does the woman play the coquette !
The young squaw who screams loudest and
shows the most resentment at these unwarrant
able liberties of an ardent lover, is set down
as the Diana of her tribe.
Giving the first banter seems to be receiv
ed by the woman as a special prerogative, and
they seldom allow it to he infringed with impu
nity—Mever in the presence of a third person.
This extends even to their dances, for the
squaw always selects her partner, and sends the
master of cetemonies after him, and ho is not
permitted to refuse. It is at these dances that
elopements of married women with young war
riors generally take place. The woman slips
nut of the dance at a moment when the confu
sion is the greatest, and repairs to a point agreed
upon, where she is soon followed by her lover.,
They usually remain in the woods three or four
days, and when they return live as man and
wife, without being molested. Hence elope-
ments - are common.
) The squaws have another privilege which
they often exercise. When 'one chooses a
partner for a dance to whom another is attached
her rival closely watches them. and at the first
favorable opportunity. cuts in. or in other
wordi euts,out the other, leaping into her place
with the agility of a fawn, and the mortified
danseuse must silently retire from the circle.
Old widows, we have ascertained, frequently
give the banter before IMscribed, and in many
eases they marry young persons under twenty.
one. A squaw of a certain age, if she has been
thrifty, is generally provided with a house and
some other appliances. and it is considered
quite a speculation for a young man to be sup
ported by one of them a year or two. At the ,
expiration of that period, they "ere generally
abandoned for a youne wife.
Eoucavion.—Etery boy should have his
head, his heart and his hand educated.—Let
this truth never be forgotten. By the prop
per education of the head he will be taught
what is good, and what is tvil—what is wise
and what is foolish—what is right and what is
wrong. By the proper education of the
heart he will be enabled to supply his wants,
to add -to his comforts, and to assist those
around him. The highest objects of a good
education are to reverence and obey Gnd, and
to love and serve mankind; every thing that
helps us in attaining these objects is of great
value, and every thing that hinders is compara
tively worthless. When wiadonit reigns in the

That was it, exactly. Some men have such

They rely on the soil. not on labor, or skill,
or rare. Some men expect their hauls to
work; and wine expect to work their lands ;
and that is just the difference between a good
and bad farmer.
Preservation of Apples.
The following practical observations, con
tained in a letter from Noah Webster, have
been published in the ,Massachusetts Agricultu
ral Lepordtory :
.• it is the practice with some persons to pick
apples in October, and first spread them on
floor of an upper room. This practice is said
to render apples more durable, by dry ing - theni.
But I can affirm this to be a mistake. Apples
after remaining on the trees as long as safety
from the frost will admit. should be taken di
reedy from trees to close casks, and kept dry
and cool as possible. If suffered to lie on dm
floor for we..lts, they wither and lose their fla
vor. without acquiring an additional durability.
The hest mode of preserving apples for spr. , mg
use, I have found to be, the putting of them in
dry sand as soot' as picked. For this purpose,
dry sand in the heat of summer; and late in
October, put down the appleti in layers, with
a covering of sand upon each layers. The
singular advantages of this mode of treatment
are these : Ist. the sand keeps the apples from
tne air. which is essential to Their preservation.
2.1, the sand checks the evaporation of the ap
ples, thus preserving them in their full flavor ;
at the same time, any moisture yielded by the
apples. and some there will be, is absorbed b%
the sand. so that the apples arekept dry, and
all mustiness is prevented."
POTATOES.—The editor of the Boston Culti
vator says Drying potatoes may tle-agood
method to save them Iron the rot, and it may
be well lo save them in this way; vet by ex
posure to the air they will lose much of their
good quality. If potatoes lay in a box or bar
rel, open to the air, and in a room, shed, or
other places out of - the cellar, they will . lose
Much of their good qualities in five or six
weeks. To preserve potatoes in good condi
non, they should be dug with as little exposure
to the air as possible. and put in a cellar in a
close bin, cask or bok. and the cellar should
be closed so as to exclude light and air. Yet
it may be better to save them with a loss of a
part of their good properties, than to let them
decay ; but we would caution the lovers of
good' potatoes against too much exposure, as
it will cause too great a depreciation in their
New York Mill, Lockport.
The following description of a flour-mill is
(ruin a Lockport paper.
4 . The Spalding mill was built in 1841, near
the locks and on the site of the one consumed
by tire in 1840. It is GO by 10 feet on the
ground, and on the water side eleven stories
high, and five on the hill or ridge side, includ
ing the attic—built of stone, in the most sub
stantial manner—the walls of the first story be
ing four feet thick. The gearing and shafts
throughout are of iroti. It has two water
wheels of 24 feet di - itneter each, and ten feet
bucket; each carries four run of stone, with
cleaning machinery complete for flouring, and
also for Custom work. It requires ordinarily
twenty-one hundred bushels of grain to keep it
running for twenty-four hours, and can turn
our five hundred and fifty barrels of flour in
that time ; two hundred and fifty to two hun
dred and eighty barrels having been frequently
made in twelve hours. The flour is packed
by presses driven by water, without straining
' the barrel ; and the flour runs directly into it
from the bolt, thus avoiding the dirt which too
often is shovelled in, when packed by hand in
the old fashioned way. Competent judges
pronounce this mill to he the best in Western
New York. if not in the United States; and
we think it a great advantage to the fine wheat
growing country around us to have such an
establishment in' our midst."

um speaks of the life and business activity in
that place. In every direction new buildings
are going up in all stages of completion. Im

THE 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 of the Gut
fare, which indicates the wonderful process going on
within. This perspiration flows uninterruptedly when
se are in health, but ceases when we are sick. It should
be the care of every one to see that it it 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 ibrelfpure. The
language of Scripture is, "in theblood is the life." If.
it ever becomes impure, it may he 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.
Thos 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 heat and vi
tality are sufficient, without one particle of medicine,
except to open the pores upon the surface.—Thus we
see the folly
,of taking so much internal remedies. All
practitioners, however, direct their efforts to restore the
insensible perspiration. but it seems to he not *Ways the
proper one. The Thompsonians for instance, steams,
the Ily.'ropathist shrouds us in wet blankets, the Ho
mopathist deals out infinitissimals, the A llopathistbleeds
and doses Gs with mercury, and the blustering quack
gorges us with pills, pills, pills.
But one object only is in view, viz: to resters the in
sensible perspiration. If this can 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 recovery, 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 Dr. Lewenhock, andthe great Boer
' heave, ascertained that five-eights of all we received in
to the stomach, passed off by this means. In otherwords,
if we eat and drink eight pounds per day, we evacuate
live 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. To check this. therefore, is to retain
in the system Ilse eights of all thervirulent 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 akin, where they form
nab., pimples, ulcers, and other spots; but if it is di
rected inwards. and fails 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 dewelope 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
insensibie perspiration. it is easily seen therefore, how
necessary is the flourofthis subtle humor to the surface,
to presetve 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 most reasonable to pursue, and unstop the
pores, after they are closed and let the perspiration flow,
that the blood may relieve itself ef its impurities? Would
you give physic to unstop the pores 1 Or would you
apply something that would do this upon the surface,
where the clogging actually isl 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
All-Healing Ointment or the World's Satre. - 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. hen
the perspiration is restored, it has power to penetrate the
longs, liver, or any part of the human system, end 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 eats Logue of
cutaneous disorders, and restores the entire cuticle to its
healthy functions.
It is a remedy that forbids the necessity ofso many
and deleterious drugs taken into the stomach.
It is a remedy that neither sickens, gives inconveni-
ence, or is dangerous to tho intestines.
This remedy is probably the only one now known,
that is capable of producing all thew great molts. Its
great value is in restoring at once, the circulation of the
juices when checked, or disarranged by cold or other
causes. It preserves and defends 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 •nir 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 you! door. It is rightly termed All-
Healing, for then is scarcely a disease, external or in
ternal, that it will not benefit. It will be 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 hoyensed it for all disease
of the cheat, consumption, liver and the most dangerous
of internal maladies. I have ukil i it in cases of extreme
peril and hazard, involving tifeeti most danger and re
sponsibility, and I declare before Heaven and man,-that
not in one single case has it failed to benefit, when the
patient was within the reach of mortal means.'
I never,, to my recollection had more than fide or six
among the thousands who have used it, say that it was
not favorable to their complaint. On the contrary I have
had hundreds return voluntarily, and in the warmest
and most, pathetic language speak hi its praise. I have
had physicians, learned in the profession; I have had mi
nisters of the gospel, Judges on the bench, aldermen
and lawyers; gentlemen of the highest erudition and
multitudes of poor, rise it in every variety of Ivey, and
there has been INt one voice, one united. univer s al voice
saying " McAlliVer your ointment is good."
Consumption.—Of all diseases, we find this the most
important; and concerning which we meet with the most
opposition. It ean hardly be credited that a salve can
have more effect upon the lungs, seatetles they are with
in the system. But we say once for all, that this oust.
Melt will reach the lungs quicker than any medicines
that can be given internally. livery 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
mors from all external wires by causing them to dis
charge. In like manner it operates upon internal affec
tions by driving all the impurities through the pores to
the surface. 'Thus with consumption, if placed upon
the cheat, it penetrates directly to the lungs, separates
the poisonous particles that are consuming them and ex
pels them from the system.
It is the simplestand most rational process in creation,
if one his the medicine capable of doing it. The All-
Ointment poseersee thit power to the 'albeit
extent. I need not say that it is curing persons of Con
sumptioit continually, although we are told it is foolish
near. I care not what is said, so long as I can cure se
veral thousand persona yearly. If this medicine was in
the bands of some patent medicine brawlers, they would
make an uproar through the country that would be int
Scrofula or King's Evil.—This disease is really in
veterate, and hard to be subdued: It is generally seated
in the aides of the neck, behind the ears and under the
chin, yet scarcely any part of the body is exempt. It
sometimes falls upon the lungs and produces consump
tion. It is a dicadful circumstance, that this disease is
transmitted from parents to children. The Solve will
extract all the morbid matter by causing the sores to dis
charge and then let then the Solar Tincture be Mier., to
drive it to one point, which done, a continuance of the
Ointment will completely remove this disorder. This is
"the &Jest and most effectual of any method. It should
be adopted without- a moment's hesitation.
ErysTelos —This complaint arises from impurities
being driven out to the surface by means of the insensible
perspiration, and lodgin; in the cuticule, forms sores,
pimples &c., it being of a ,caustic, acrid putrifying na
ture. It only requires that it should discharge its vi
rulent particles through, the skin, and the difficulty will
pans off. If suffered to remain, and driven inivartls it is
frequently fatal.
Let the Salve and Solar ? Tincture be used as in scro
fula and the patient will anon gettwell.
.Sal Rhetsrn.—This is nuutlicr:ubsiinate duicase but
can be cured effectually os the scrofula. There is no
difficultyin this
Head ache, Ear ache and Deafnera.—Tht!Salve has
cored persons of the listubAche of 12 years standing
and who had tt regularly cvely week, so that vomiting
often took place. It cured the wife of n man who laugh
ed in my face for proposing such a cure. and oho now
would not be without it for the heat lawn in the ..tate. if
any one will take the tioulile to dl 1 will give ld name.
Deafness and Ear-Ache are helped with th e lik e sue .
nem as also Ague in the face. • '
Cold Feet.—Consumption, liver complaint, pains in
the chest or side, lulling of the hair, une Of the other
alwayi 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
fering thereby.
The salve will restore the insensible perspiration and
thda cure every case. It is infallible for this.
Asthma, l'ighincas of Brcath.—lf this disease is not
hereditary and produce° by the malformation of the chest,
the salve will cure it.
Dyspepsia.—One would s uppose a seise would \not
effect thin disease much hut the 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 (men 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.'
Sure Lips, Chapped Hands 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 see. It acts like a charm in these com
plaints. Two or three applications cures.
Pimples on the face, freckles, tan, masculine skin,
gross surface.—lts first 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 doll repulsive surface,
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 etches into natural and healthy activity
the Insensible Perspiration, while it renovates and re
news the surface, and leaves the skin in as lively and
delieate a condition as the most fastidious could desire.
Iris put up in fine jars and beautifully scented on pur
pose for the toilet.
Burns.—Life cao.always be Rived 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 throat, Influenza, Bronehilis.—Tbere
is not an internal remedy in existence that will cure
these disorders as quick as the salve. It opens the pores
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 nr Rupture.—This salve has cured some very
had cases of rupture, and although it might not 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 helieve no medicine of the
least benefit.
Two shillings worth would satisfy any one, whether
it would do good 'r not.
Eliot Passion or. Griping, of the Initerines.—T his

Indeed there are few complaints that it will not ben

as the sky rolls over one's head and gross grows upon
the earth, it will be sought after, usel and valued. As
