SPretal ilottcris. En= Addiresi to the Nervous and Debilitated whose angering" have been protracted DOM hidden mutes and whose eases require prompt treatment to render existence desirable. If you are suffering or have suffered from invOluniary, discharges, what effect does It produce upon your g4ral health? Do you feel weak, debili tated, ,y tired?. Does a little exertion pro. duce palpitation of the heart? Does youkiver or urinary organs, or your kidneys, frequently get out of Order? Is your urine sometimes thick, milky, flocky, or Is It 'ropy on settling? Or does a thick scum rise to the top? Or Is a sediment at the bottom after it hat stood awhile? Do you have spells of short breathing or dyspepsia?. Are your bowels constipated? Do you have spells of fainting or rushes of blood to thehead? Is your memory impaired? Is your mind con straitly dwellings:mon this sultleet ? Doynti feel dull, listless, moping, tired of compen,y,:of life? Do you wish to be left aldne, to, get away from everybody? 'Does any little thing make you start or jump? Is your sleep broken or restless? -Is the lustre of your eye as brilliant? The bloom on your cheek as bright? Dciyou el:0y yoplself in society as well? Do you pursue your business with the same 'energy? Do you feel as much confidence in yourself? Are your 'spirits dull and flagging, given to Its of melancholy? If so, do not lay it to your liver or dyspepsia. Rave you restless nights? Your back weak, your knees weak, and have but little appetite, and you attribute this to dyspepsia or liver com plaints? Now, reader, selt-abuie, venereal diseases WI• ly oared, and sexual excesses, are all capable of producing a weakness of the generative organs. . of generation, when in perfect health, make the man. Did you ever think that those bold, dell a ut, energetic, persevering, successful business men are always those whose generative, organs are in perfect health? You never hear such men complain of being melancholy, of nervous ness, of palpitation of the heart: They are nev er afraid they cannot succeed in business; they don't become sad uud discouraged; they are al ways polite and pleasant in the company of la dles, and look you and theta right In the face— none of your downcast looks or any other mesto ness about therm Ido not mean those who keep the organs inflamed by running to caress. These wilt not only ruin their eonstittitions, but also those they do huskies with or for. How many men (rota badly cured diseaseti, from the effects of self-abuse and excesses. have brought about that state of weakness in those organs that has reduced the general system so much as to induce almost every other disease , — idiocy, lunacy; paralysis, spinal affections, sui cide, and almost every other form of disease which humanity is heir to, and the real cause of the trouble Scarcely' ever suspected, and have doctored for all but . the right one.

In the flush of self-confidence, we are apt to forget what a vigilant enemy we have to overcome, and what desperate measures he is apt to resort to to attain his ends. Political battles, like those of a more bloody nature, depend fur their re-. sults more on the Ski ll,courage, determination had energy of the contesting foes than upon the sacredness of their cause, or the convictions of the participate. The Democracy of America have always stood Birth as deiotedly attached to the Union, the Constitution and She wet- litre of the country as - they do today, yet for seven years they s ligA; been divested of power, and it is only,vhen the people era aroused from their delusion by the imperilled ,condition of the public interests, that they have again returned to. us that confidence which it would have been well they had never' parted with. The all-important necessity of the day, on the part of our political friencts' wonK!!. WORK!!! We must be thoroughly organized and pre pared fil'r the campaign. Every man tunst consider that he owes a personal duty in the matter, as indeed he does, for there is no one so humble, but he is in some way more or less 411ncerned in the issues at stake. AlFthe districts must be canvassed, so that we3may know where it wilt be most advantageous to employ our energies. The young men must be encouraged to lend a helping hand. Those who have been led estray must be brought back to the fold, and Democratic argutnents paced in their reach, that they may know the distinctive questions which divide' par ties, and no longer be misled by the wiles and falsehoods of the OppoSition. What we have said before We now reiter ate, and intend reiterating until we have waked the Democracy up.to a full cont4ciotts ness of its truth, that the most effective weapon towards success is Oie :wide distrait firm of mend and 'at raightforward 44€11'h SW& ''PaPenk One good journal in a family will do more towards moulding it 4 political convictions than all other influences, and fifty copies cir culated In any locality for six Months will accomplish more efficient service than a doz- en costly mass meetings. The Demoyratic party has never displayed that zeal in supporting its press that it need ed, and to that cause, as much as anything else, may be attributed Ita•tnlsfortunes during the last ten years. In :all sections of the country—even in the midst of the strongest Democratic localities—the Radical press is more liberally sustained than ours, and in many places the contrast is Ho great as al most to amount to a disgrace, The time has come for these things to slx changed, and for the Democratic ; party to' enter upon a new method of waefire. Our papers ought to be spread broadetist over the land, and take the . place of those which are now defiling the minds of the young and filling them with wrong ideas of Republican liberty. Our public men should avail nein selves of every opportunity. that offers to im press the importance of these views on the attention of the masses. Our Focal leaders should make a point of devoting . whatever spare time they eAT, towards strengthening their county organs by procuring their friend* and neighbors' patronage. The low price of TWO DOLLARS Ar year at which the Observer is now offered, if paid in advanet, ought to ensure the doubt Hug of our,subseription list inside of the next six months.

MARY MOORE. A PLEASANT LOVE STORY All my life-loug I bad known Mary Moore. All my life I had loved her. Our mothers were old playmates and first cousins. - My first recollections are of a boy, in a red frock and morocco shoes, rocking a cradle in which reposed a sunny haired, blue, eyed baby, not quite a year old. That boy was myself—Harry Church ; that bleeiedla by was Mary Moore. Later still I see myself at the little sehool house;drawiyg my little chair up to the door that Mary might ride home. Many a beat ing have I gained on such occasions, for other boys besides tae liked her, and she, I fear was something of a flirt, even in her pinafore. How elegantly she ,carne tripping down the steps when I called her name. How sweetly her blue eyes looked tit me. How gaily rang 'out 'her merry laugh. No one but Mary could bring her heart so soon to her lips. I followed that laugh from my days of childhood tilt I grew' an awkward, blushing youth—l followed ft through the heated noon of manhood—and now, when the frosts of age are siliering my hair, and many children climb upon tny knee and call me "father," I Ind that the memories of „ youth are strong, and that, even in grey s ham, I am following the music still. "When I was fifteen the first great sorrow of my life came upon my heart. I was sent to school, and was obligedlopart with Mary. We were nottoeee each-other for three long years. This, to me was like a sentence of death, for Mary was like: life Itself to me. 'But hearts are tough things after all. licit college in all the flush and vigor of my iiiiieteenth year. I was no longer awk ward or embarrassed. I had grown into a tall slender stripling, with a very good opin ion of myself, both in general and particular. ICI thought of Mary Moore it was to imag ine how I could dazzle, and bewilder her with - my good looks and wonderful mental attainments, and never thinking that she might dazzle and bewilder me still more. I was a coxcomb, I know, bet as youth and good looks have fled, I trust that I may be believed when I say that Selfeonceit has left me also. An advantageous proposal was made me at that time, and accepting it. I gave up all- Idea of a profession, and prepared to go to India. 'ln my hurried visit house of two dap, I saw nothing of Mary Moore. She had gone to a boarding school at some distance, and was not expected home until the following May. I uttered out a sigh to the memory of -my little blie-eyed playmate, and then called myself "a man" spin. In a year, I thought,as the vehicle whirled away from nur door, in a year, or three years at the very most, I will return and if Mary is as pretty as she used to be, why, then per haps I may marry her. And thus I settled the -future of a young lady whom I had not seen for four years. I never thought of the possibility of her refus ing me—never dreamed that 'she would not condescend to accept my - offer. But now I know that, had Mary met me then she would have despised me. Perhaps in the scented and affected student she might have found plenty of sport ; but as for loving me, I should perhaps have found myself mis taken. India was my salvation, not merely because of my success, but because my labor ions industry-bad 'counteracted the evil in my nature, and had 'made me a better man. When at the - end of three years I prepared to return, I said, nothing of the reformation of myself which I knew had taken place. They loved - me as I wns,l murmured tomy self, and they shall find out for themselves whether I am better worth toying than for tnerly. I packed np many a token from that land of romance and gold, for, the friends I had hoped to meet; the gift for Mary Moore, I selected with,a heating heart; it' was a ring of rough, virgin gold, with my name and her's engraved inside—that was all, and yet the sight of the little toy strangely thrilled us I balanced it upon the tip of my finger. Tothe eves of others it was but a small plain circlet suggesting thoughts, perhaps, by its eh;gance, of the beautiful white hand that was to wear it. But not to me—how much was embodied there—all these delights were hidden within that little ring of gold. Tall, bearded and sea-bronzed, I knocked at the door of my father's house. The light, in the parlor window, and the hum of the conversation arid the cheerful laughter showed me that company was assembled there. I hoped sister Lizzie would come to the door, and that I might greet my family when no strange eye Ava 4 looking carelessly on. But no—a servant answered my annunous. They were too merry in the parlor to heed the long absent line who asked for admit tance. A bitter thought like this run through my mind as I heard the sound from the par lor and saw the half suppressed smile on the - servant's face. I hesitated a monieht before making *- self known or asking for any of the liana - 3'. Anti while I stood silent a strange apparition grew up befOre me; .from behind the servant peered out a small golden head, a tiny deli cate form followed and a sweet childish face, with.blue eyes, WHS little to mine—so like to those of one who had brightened my boy hood, that I started with a sudden tbeling of pain. "What is yonr ntone,myprettv r I asked, while the wondering servant held the door. "Mary Moore." • „„, ind what else?" I asked quickly. She lifted tip ter hands to shade her eyes. I had seen that very attitude in another. in my boyhood ,Many and many a. time—and answered in a sweet, bird-like voice : "Mary,Moore Chester,"lisped the child. My heart Sunk down like lead. Here was an end to all the bright dreams and hopes of My youth and manhood. Frank Chtstter, my boyish rival, who had often tried in vain. to,ustuppy place beside the girl, bad suc ceeded at last, and had won her away from, me. This was the childhis child and Mary's. I sank, bOdy and soul, beneath this blow, and hiding my face -, in my hands, I leaned against the door. while my heart wept tears of blood.,The little one gazed atme,grieved and amazd, and put up her pretty lips as if about to - cry, while-the perplexed servant stepped to the parlor door, and called my sister out to see who it was Vial conducted himself so strangely. I hearti . a slight step, and a pleasant epics saying— , , "Did you - Wish to see my father, sir?" - I looked up. There stood a' retty, sweet faced maidenuf twenty, not much changed front the dear little sister I had lased so well. Flpoked at her for a-moment, and then still ing the tempest of my heart, by a mighty ef fort. 1-opened niyarms-and "Lirzie, don't you know me?"' "Harry I " olt„ my brother Harry r she cried, and threwherself. upon my breast. She wept as Viler heartwordd break. t Teimld not weep. I draw tar - gentlyMt° the lighted, parlor, and stood with her before them all.. • There was a rush ands cry of Joy. and then my father• and mother sprang toward me, and welcomed .= home with heartfelt tears. Oh. strange and passing sweet bench a greeting to a way-worn traveler.. And as I held my dear old mother to' in y .heart,, and grasped my father's hand. while Limb, clung beside me, I felt that all was not yet laat. and a l t h oug h another had secured life's choicestAllip—ting, many a joy remained for me in the dearaanctuary of home.., • There were four other inthates et , the room, who had risen on thy sudden entrance. One was the bineeyed child whom f had already seen, sad who now stood beside Frank Ches. ter, I...Wging to his hand. Near by stood LizzirMoore, Mary`a eldest sister, and in a distant corner, to - which - she had hurriedly retreated when my name was spoken, skied a .tall and slender figure, half hidden -by the heavy window curtains that fell to the floor. When the first rapturous greeting was over, Lizzie led' me forward With a timid grace, and Frank Cheater grasped my hand. "Welcome home, my boy !" he said, with loud cheerful tones remembered : so well,, "You have changed so that I' never would' have known-got, i but no Matter about that —your heart is in the right - place, 1.kt0w.1.„ 4 •llcrweati,you say he is changed?

"Aye,Mother," I answered, sadly, " I am ' , carboy atilt" ' 'Heaven help me I 'At that moment I felt like ti boy, andlt Would hate been 'a blessed relief to have wept uptiti - her`bosotu, as I had done in infancy. But - 1 kept down the beat ing of My heart and the tremor of my lip, and answered quietly, as I looked Into his, full, handsome face— ": You have changed, too, F'itink, nbnt T . think for the better." "Oh, yes—thank you for the compliment," he answered, with a hearty laugh. "My wife tells me I grow handsomer every day." His wife ! Conid I heir that name and keep silence still?: : 4.• • "And have you seen my little girl," he add ed, lifting the infant in his arms, and kissing her crimsoned cheek, "I• tell you, Harry, thereis no such another !tithe world. Don't you think:she looks very much like her mother used tor. • "Very much'." I faltered. "Ilnilof cried Frank, with a suddenness which! made me stilt violently ; "I have for- - gotten to introduce you to my wife; I 'be lieve she and :you used to be playmates in your younger .days—yea, Harry 1" and he slapped me on the back. "For: the sake of' old times and because you were not at the wedding, I will give you leave to kiss her once—but mind; old follow, you are never to repeat the ceremony. Come—here she is, and I for one want to see ' how you will manage those ferocious moustaches of yours inthe operation." He pushed Lizzie, laughing and blushing, towards me. A gleam of light and hope, al most too dazzling to bear, came over me, and, I cried out before I thought, "Not Mary." It must have betrayed my secret to every oue in the room. But nothing was said, even Frank, in general so obtuse, 'was this time silent. I kissed the fair cheek of the young bride, and hurried to the silent figure looking out the window. "Mary—Mary Moore," I said, in a low, eager tone, "have you no welcome to give the wanderer?" She turned and laid her hand in mine, and Said hurriedly: "I am glad to see von here, Harry." Simple words, and yet how blessed_ they made me. I would not have yielded her up that moment for an emperor's crown, For there was the happy home group and the dear home fireside, with sweet Mary Moore - . The eyes I bad dreamed of by day find night Iwere fulling beneath the ardentgaze of tame, and the sweet fiscal had so long prayed to see was there beside me. .1 never knew the meaning of happiness until that moment. Many Years have passed since that happy night, arid the hair that was dark and glossy then, is fast turning gray. lam now grown to be an bld man, and can look back to a happy, and I hope well 'spent life. And yet, sweet as it has been, I . would not recall 'a 1 single day, for the love that made my man hoi:xl so bright shines also upon my white hairs. An old man ! Can this be so ? At heart lam as young as ever. And Mary, with her bright hair parted smoothly, from a brow that has a slight furrow upon it, is still the Mary of other days. To me she can never grow old or change. The heart that held her infancy, and sheltered her in her flush 'and beauty of womanhood, can . never cast her out till life shall cease to warm it. Not even then, for love still lives above. The Young Tobacco Chewer. Captain Miorryatt, in one of his sea stories, called Peter Simple, tells, a capital anectiote about boy who was just beginning to learn to chew tobacco. I'll tell it to -you, my little friend, with the - request that, if you ever should take a notion to chow, you will just remember the story ; for I cannot doubt that the ridiculous plight of this young tobacco chewer; if yon will only keep it in your mind, Will be ugtittfficient safeguard, against forming the habit. "I was amused the lastmonfing watch that / / kept. We were stowing away the ham !Trucks in the quarter-deck nettings, when oar of the boYs curie with his hammock on hisshonlder, and as lte:paspd, the first lieuten ant perceived that he bad a quid of tobacco in Ins mouth. 'What have you got there, my good lad 't a gumboil ? Yuur cheek is much swollen.' .IsTo, sir,' replied the boy, 'there`:. nothing at . an. the matter.' .0, there must be ; perhaps it is a byd tooth. Opea your mouth and let me see.' Very reluctantly the boy opened his mouth, width contained a large roll of tobacco-leaf. q see, I see,' said the lieutenant; 'your mouth wants ,oVgrhnuling, and your teeth cleaning. I wish }ye had a dentist on board ; but as we have not, I. will operate as well as I can. Send the armorer up here with his tongs.' , 'When the armorer tautde his appearance, the boy was compelled to open his mouth, while the tobacco was extracted with this rough instrument. • 'There now,' said the lieutenant, 'I am sure that you must feel better already; you never could have any appetite with such stuff in your mouth. Now, captain of the after guard, bring a piece of old canvass and some send, and clean his teeth nicely. The Cap tain of the alter-guard mile forwent, and, petting' the boys head between his knees, scrubbed his teeth well with sand and canvass tier two or three minutes. 'There, that will do; said the lieutenant. 'Now, my little fellow, take some water and rinse out your month nice and clean, and you w ill enjoy your breakfast. It was impossi ble for you to have eaten anything with your mouth lei such a nasty state. -When it la dirty again, come to Inc and I will be your Jentist." Sousid 40ra The following rules from the par4.4..41 pr. West, according to, his memorandum, are thrown together as way-marks in the jour ney of life : .Never ridicule sacred things, ur what others may esteem as such, however absurd they nisy appear to you, Never show levity when people are at vior ship. • Never resent a supposed injury until you know the views and motives of the author. Always take the purr of any other person who is censured in compsny, so far as truth and propriety will allow. Never think less of others on account of their differing with you on political or reli gious subjects. Not to dispute with a man who is more than seventy years o 1• age; nor with a wo man, nor an enthusiast. Nor affect to be witty, or to jest, so to wound the feelings of another. To say as little u possible about myself, and' of those who are near to me. To aim at cheerfulness without levity. • Never to - ccivet a favor of the rich by list- Wring either their vanities or vices. 30 speak - with - deliberatimy on all occa sions, especially in circumstances-which tend to•irritate. • Frequently to review my conduct - anti note my feelings. . • NEVER, "Kuocit UHDEB."—No never.
