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
,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
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

that has not been experienced in many years.
The, late elections show conclusively that a
vest inalority Of - the nation are ready to es
pouse our standard if we only prove faithful
to our creed, and continue to stand firmly by
the interests of the country:,
But to make victory certain something
more is necessary thin mere dependence up-
on the truth of our principles. 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 part of our political friencts'

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.

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

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
„ 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

whether I am better worth toying than for
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
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

When the first rapturous greeting was over,

and Frank Cheater grasped my hand.

"Oh, yes—thank you for the compliment,"
he answered, with a hearty laugh.

"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,

mother used tor.
"Very much'." I faltered.

which! made me stilt violently ; "I have for- -

slapped me on the back. "For: the sake of'

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

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
