We bate delay ; yet it makes us wise.
A man may "get along" without advertizing
so can a wagon-wheel without greasing, but
it goes hard.
Spare that you may speed ; fast that you
may fast ; labor that you may lire ; and run
that you may rest.

A writer in an English paper is very indig
nant that "the ladies are always drunk last"
at convivial gatherings. What would the
writer expect 1 They are certainly the last
we should like to see drunk.
Ad Irishman remarked to his companion on
aeeing a lady pass ; "Pat, did you ever see a
woman so thin as that before 1" "Thin," re
plied the other, "botberashion, I seen a woman
aa thin as two of ber put together."
A pedlar called on an old lady to dispose of

A person entering the House of Commons

"These are goodly gentlemen ; I could work

A western editor has got off Ibis unfeeling

like King Richard III, "My kingdom for a

Fishing foe Compliments. "I really cannot
sing, believe me, sir," was the reply of a young
girl to the repeated requests of an empty fop.
"I am rather inclined to believe, madam,"

the lady, "I never fish in such a shallow stream."

A Store was broken open .one night, but
strange to say nothing was carried off. The
proprietor was making his brag of it, at tho
aame time expressing bis surprise at losing
nothing. "Not at all surprising," said his
neighbor; "the robbers lighted a lamp, didn't
they?" "Yes," was the reply. "Well,"

Can yon explain it ?" "I can't" replied his

A bowery boy being cut short injlife by a

one in a hundred," "I say, then, doctor,"

Mr. W. Is one of our most popular artists
and draughtsmen. Not long since, while bu
sily at work, he was interrupted by a rough
looking customer :
"Be yon Mr. W., the painter ?"
"I am, sir."
"You teach creatures to draw, I believe ?"
Yes, sir," replied the artist, who fancied
his visitor some wealthy old farmer. "Do you
wisn your daughter to take a few lessons ?"
"No, sir, not my darter."

A Kentucky Governor Gov. Powell, of
iweniucsy, was never an orator, but his con
Tersational, storytelling and social qualities
were remarkable. His great forte lay in es
tablishing a personal intimacy with every one
fie met, and in this way he was powerful in
electioneering. He chewed immense quanti
ties of tobacco, but never carried the weed
himself, and was always begging it of every
one he met. His residence was in Henderson,
and in coming np the Ohio past that place I
everbeard the following characteristic anecdote
A citizen of Henderson coming on board
fell into conversation with a passenger, who
made inquiries about Powell.
"Lives In your place, I believe, don't he ?"
. "Yes, one of our oldest citizens."
Very sociable man, ain't be ?"
"Well, I thought so. I think he is one of
the most sociable men I over met with in all
ray life. Wonderfully sociable! I was in
troduced to him over at Grayson Springs last
summer, and he had not been with me ten
minutes when he begged all the tobacco I had,
got his feet op in my lap, and spit ell over me !

IVEW-YORK TRIBUNE NEW VOLUME
11 On the seventh of September, 1861, THE
NEW-YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE commenced the
twenty-first year of its existence; the THE DAI
LY TRIBUNE being some months older andTHE
f fc-ul-W tt.K LY IlllBLNE somewhat younger.
r or more man twenry years, this journal has la
bored in what its conductors have felt to be the
cause of Humanity. Justice and Freedom, ende.iv
oring to meliorate the condition of the oppressed
and unfortunate, to honor and encourage useful
exertion in whatever sphere, and, to promote by
an means the moral, intellectual and material ad
vancement of our country. It has aimed to bo
right rather than popular, and to espouso and
commend to-day the truth that others may not be
willing to accept till to-morrow. In puruine
tuis course, misiaKes nave aouoties3 been made
and faults committed ; but, having in all things
incited our readers co think and judge for them
selves rather than ndopt blindly our own or oth
ers conclusions, we believe we mav fairlv claim
for this journal the credit of having qualified its
readers to detect and expose even its own errors.
To develop the minds of the young by the most
general, tnorougn and practical Education. and to
encourage and stimulate Productive Industry,
through free grants of Public Lands to actual set-
tlersand cultivators, as also through the protec
tion of immature or peculiarly exposed brunches
from too powerful foreign competition, areamon
the aims to which this journal has adhered
through good and evil report, and which it stead
fastly commends to American patriotism and
As to the Civil War now devastating our coun
try, we hold it to have originated in a Rebellion
more wanton, wicked, inexcusable, then was ev
er bclore known a Kebellion in the interest of
the few against tho many a Rebellion designed
to raise higher the walls of caste and tighten the
chains of oppression. Having done all we could
without a surrender of vital principle to avoid
this War. and witnessed the lorbearancc, meek
ness, and long-suffering with which the Federal
Government sought to avert its horrors, we hold
it our clear duty, with that of every other citizen
to stand by tb nation and its fairly chosen ru
lers, and to second with all our energies their ef
forts to uphold the Union, the Constitution, and
the supremacy of the laws. And, though the Ke
bellion has become, through usurpation, deception,
terroism, and spoliation, fearfully strong, we be
lieve tho American Republic far stronger, and
that the unanimous, earnest efforts of loyal hearts
and hands will insure its overthrow. But on all
questions affecting the objects, the scope, and du
ration of this most extraordinary contest, we de
fer to those whom .the American People have
clothed with authority, holding unity of purpose
and of action indispensable in so grave an emer
gency In a crisis like the present, our columns must
be largely engrossed with the current history of
the War for the Union, and with elucidations of
its more striking incidents. We shall not, how
ever, remit that attention to Literature, to For
eign Affairs, to Agricultural Progress, to Crops,
Markets. Ac. which has already, we trust, won for
THE TRIBUNE an honorable position anion? its
co temporaries. Our main object is and shall be
to produce a comprehensive newspaper, from
which a careful reader may glean a vivid and
faithful history of the times, not merely in the do
main of Action but in that of Opinion also. A
our facilities for acquiring information increase
with years, we trust that an improvement in the
contents of our journal is perceptible, and that.
in the variety and fulness of intelligence afford
ed, we may still hope to 4 make each day a critic
on the last." In this hope, we solicit a continu
ance of the generous measure of patronage hith
erto accorded to our journal.

then; is a case of acute rheumatirm. or, as it it Dow'
fashionably called, rheumatic fever. It ij a well
marked typical case. We will carefully watch tht
case, and from time to time call your attention to
the various symptoms which present thtmsclTn.
My chief object in bringing her before you bow it
to call your attention to a remedy which hu re
cently been recommended in the treatmentof rheu
matism. I mean propylamine. Dr. Awenarius of
St. Petersburg, recommends it in the highest termi
having derived great benefit from its nsa in 2ij
ca.ses which came under his care. Various coia
inendatory testimonials respecting it have appear
ed in our journals, and I propose giving it anotbr
trial. I must confess 1 am always incredulous aa
to the worth of new remedies, which are vaunt4
as specifics ; but this comes to us recommended iu
highly, that we are bound to give it a trial.
SAME CASE FOUR DAYS LATER !
Mat 23, 1S(50. I wi;l now exhibit to you the pa
tient for whom I preshribed Propylamine, and
who was then laboring under an attack of acuta
rheumatism. She has steadily taken it in doir
of three grains, every two hour, (intermitting it
at night). The day after you saw her, I found ber
much more comfortable, better than she expecteJ
to bo for a week or more, judging from hr other
attack. (The patient now walked into the room.)
The improvement has steadily progreed, and
you cannot fail to notice a marked chaoge in the
appearance of her joints, which are now nearly ul
their natural size. Thus far our experiment would
have seemed very successful : but gentlemen w
must wait a little while before we can give a dV
cided opinion as to what is to be the result.
THREE DAYS LATER!!
Mat 26,1800. Th is is the case of acute rheuma
tism treated with propylamine, the first of thee to
wjjich I called your attention at our la.t clime.
She is still very comfortable, and is bow tnkinj
three gratns thrice daily.
In this case it has seemed to be followed by verv
satisfactory results. The second case to which
your attention was called at our lu.st lecture, ba
also continued to do well. I will now bring -fore
you a very characteristic cae of aaute a
matism, and if the result b c satisfactory,
as good jurymen, trc shall justly render otirvs'...
in I'avni of propylamine.
He is a scaniHa. ot. 2t. who was admitted a few
daj-g ago. Has had occasional rhcuuiu?i: air.,
but not so as to keep his bed, until eiht i!nm;a,
The pains began in bis right knee, aubsia-euily
affected the left knee, and later the j-jin'j of tLe
upper extremities, 'ihuse joints aro . swollen,
tense and tender. His tongue is furred; iiiiikin
at present, dry, though there has been much sweat-ias-
His pulse is full and strong, and ai-out 9U.
He has now used propylamine tweuty-four houn.
This gentlemen is what may be called a. ttrictly
typical case ot acute rheumatism. There v as ex
posure to cold and wet. and this exposure is fol
lowed by a feeling of coldness, severe articular
pain, beginning, as it usually eloes. In the lower
joints There is fever and the profuio swoatiuj,
sogenerallyattendant on acute rheum ai.e'n.
I did not bring this patient before yo-i vtith the
intention of giving you a lecture on all a v jiuimi
connected with rheumatism, but to rijvi ;.r i
trial to the new remedy we are testing" nnd t- ex
hibit to you this typical ca.e, a I have ca!l-J it.
than which there could not be a fairer cp porr-.mity
for testing tho medicine in rucstioa." W : are,
therefore, avoiding the use of ail oilier medicine,
even anodynes, that there may be no misiviniri
as to which was the efiicient remedy. You saail
seethe case in a future clinic.
THE RESULT. A FAVORABLE VEI1LICT.

the case ofjacu te rheum at i-in before you at jurclia
ie of May 2tlth, which I then called a typical ca.
and which it was remarked was f airopportuni.y
for testing the worth of our new remedy. Jtwaj
therefore steadily given in three grain doses every
two hours for four days. The patient h..s got along
very nicely, and is now able to walk abut w Ju
see. I do not hrsitatt to say that J hare urrrrseeii
