TO THE PUBLIC, coid particularly to tiny prose

practice of kiedicine,l may be permitted to say, that it
has fallen to the lot of but few persons to have enjoyed
so liberal or large a share of obstretrical practice as
own has been for the last 30 or 40 years.
The experience of that long period of active life, and the
fact of my having been twice, since 1830. associated with
Dr. R. A . Wilson, in the practice of medicine, (in both a
period of five years.) enables me to judge fully of the
merits of his pills.
So convenient,so efficient. and yet so safe, did 1 esteem
these pills, that for the last five years in my practice for
th cure of chronic diseases,of whatever nams, and those
females in particular, I have used more ot them than
all other medicines.
Like every other medicine, this must fail in some in
stances, but In my hands there has been lees disappoint.
ment and more satisfaction in the administration of this
one remedy than of ail others; its good effects sometimes
quite astonishing me.
if my patient required a safe aperient medicine either
.efore or after parturition, the Wilson's pt.ls were just
the thing t wanted.

Thatso great a number of diseases, and Eometlines ap.

should be clued more readily by them than by any other
remedy, may at first seem strange and c•ontradictory, but
why it is so is as clear to my mind as that a greet many
persons should become thirsty frosusat =ley different
causes, arid yet all require that common and greatest or
all blessings, water to quench their thirst.

THE LITERARY POST
From Sargent`g New Monthly Magazine for Rummy
The Raising of Jairusts Daughter•
BY ANNA CORA MOWATT.
Within the darkened chamber sat
proud but stricken form,
Upon her vigil-waaed cheeks,
The grief-wrung tears were warm;
And faster streamed they as she bent
Above the couch of pain,
Where lay a wiih'ring flower that wooed
Those fund eyes' fresh'iling rain.
The raven tress on that young brow
Was damp with dews of death; -
And glassier grew her upraised eye,
With ev'ry fluttering breath.
And as her slender fingers lay
Within tl a mourner's clasp,
They lightly pressed that fosering hand,
And stiffened in its grasp!
Then low the mother beet her knee,
And cried in fervent prayer,
*Hear me, 0 G.,d l—mine own, my child!
0 holy Father spare!
My loved—my hst—my only one!
Tear her not yet away—
Leave this crushed heart its brat—sole joy!
Be merciful, I pray!'
A radiance lit the maiden's face,
Though fixed in death her e)e;
A smile had mei the angel's kiss
That stole her parting sigh.
And round I er cold lip still that smile
A holy brightness shed,
As though she jo)cd her sinless soul
To him who gave had
The mother clasped the senseless form,
And shrieked in wild despair,
And kissed the icy lip and cheek,
And touched the dewy hair!
warmth--no life? my child! my child!
0, for one parting word!
Qne murmur of that lute like voice
Though but an instant heard!
.She is not dead! she could no die—
o young—so fair—so pure—
Spare me, in pity spare this bolt!'
All else I can endure.
Take hope—take peace—this blighted heaJ
Strike with thy heaviest rod!
Rit leave me this thy swcelest boon,
Give back my child, 0 God!'
ahe ceased, her street - ning Wail; were stayed,
Hushed were those wafflings loud—
A hallow'd peace crept o'er her soul,
Her head to earth was bowed;
For, as the sorrowing suppliant knelt,
About her, lo! a flood
Cf soft eelestiallustre fel!?
A form beside her stood!
And slowly then her awe-struck face,
Arad (righted eyes she rat,ec;
Her heart leaped high—!hoar clouded orbs
Grew brighter as she gazed;
For oh! they rested on a shape,
Majestic—yet so mild
Imperial dignity seemed Went
ith sweetness of a child.
He spaito not—but that N•inl-like smile
Was full of mercy's light;
and pity from those eyes
•Trust, and thy fait s.
Behold I am thy Lord!'
He turns—and on that Leanteous clay
Ells Godlike glances rest;
Comman !ingly the pallid brow
His po'ent fingers presl!
The frozen current flows anew
Beneath that quicli'n!ng
The pale lips, softly parting, move—
She breathes at bis commanc:
The spirit in its kindred realm
Has heard its mister's call;
And. to! returning to that voice,
Resumes its earthy thrall!
And now from under those white lids
It shines with meeker light.
As though 'twere chastened—purifird—
By even that transient flight!
Loud swells the mothers erj of joy—
To him how passing sweet!

And sinks at Jesus' feet!

Who spared my heart this blow!
