PREDICTIONS FOR THE YEAR ISM
According to II new Almanac, the. year
of our Lord, 1848 is to be an eventful one.
We extract from said Almanac the follow•
ing iiagarioits,preOietions, which will dtnibti
leas be fulfilled :
..Through the whole course of the corn
ing year, whenever the moon wanes the
night will grow dark.--:--On several Occa
sions, during the year, the sun will rise be
fore certain people discover it, and *be
fore they hare finished the day's work.—
it is quite likely that when there is no bu
siness doing, many will be heard to com
plain of hard times, but it is equally cer
tain that all who hang themselves wilL es
cape .starvation.-..---If bustles and hoops
go out of fashion, a church pew will hold
more than three ladies.-11dandies wear
their beards, there will be less work fur the
barbers, and he who wears mustachiues
will have something to sneeze a t.---There
will be many eclipses of virtue, some
others invisible.—Whosoever is in
love will think his mistress a perfect angel,
and will only find out the truth of hie sus
picion by getting married.—Many deli
cate ladies, whom no one would suspect.
will he kissed without telling their Ma's.
—There will be more books published
than will find purchasers, more rhymes
written than will find readers, and more
bills made than will find payers.—lf the
incumbent of a fat dike should die, there
will he a dozen feet ready to step into one
pair of shoes.-r---If any young lady should
happen to blush, she will be apt to look red
in the. face, without the use of paint ; if she .
dream of a young man three nights in suc
cession, it will be a sign of something ; if
she dreams of him four times, or have the •
toothache, it is ten to one she will be a long
time in getting either of them out of her
head....-...-Dinners and entertainmems• will
he given to those who have enough at
home, and the ptior will receive much ad
vice gratis, legal and medical excepted.—
The public debts of the repudiating States
will hardly:be adjusted, and the same fate
will very probably attend private contracts
in this latititile.lle who marries this
year will run a great risk, especially if he
does it in a hurry.—lle who steals a
match, gives tattlers occasion to gossip, and
will be apt to involve himself and bride in
disagtotable relations.—There will be a
&at, sokat all over the country when it
thueders, and a tremendous dust will be
kicked up; oecasionally, by coach-horses.
---Many young Indics who hope for it,
but littie 'iipeet it, will be married; and
many who confidently anticipate that glori
ous etanshonafinn.‘oll be doomed to Wait
.*Finally, there exists little doubt, this
will he a "meat wonderful" year, surpass.
int in interest an that hate preceded it.

This universal medicine mildly but. windy
cleanses the whole extenfof the alimentary canal
It then gives increased power to the circulation of
the blood, by which it deposits any impurities it
may contain in the bowels', which organ expels
them from the body.
This action may continue for days, weeks, or
months, es tho mildness or urgency of the disease
may demand, or untdthe entire body has been e
vacuated arid re-made from the food consumed.
How important is it that persons of feeble frame,
of impure constitutions, should, without delay,
commence withihis pure and wholesome medicine.
No time ought to be lost by using Lounges or
Candies as Medicines, which are •better 'adapted
for the destruction of the teeth, than for the corset

The testimony in favor of the Brandreth Pills,

of misery by their use, render it imperative that all
