How important it is that you commence
without loss of time with BRANDRETH
PILLS. They mildly but surely remove all
impurities from the blood, and no case of
sickness can effect the human frame, that
these celebrated Pills do not relieve as much
as medicine can do. COLDS and COUGHS
are more benefiitted by the Brandreth Pills
than by Lozenges anti Candies. Very well,
perhaps, as palliatives, but worth nothing as
ERADICATORS of diseases from the human
system. The Brandreth Pills cure, they do
not merely relieve, they cure. Diseases,
whether chronic or recent, infectious or oth
erwise, will certainly be cured by the use of
these all-sufficient Pills.
CURE OF A C ANCEROUS SORE.
SING SING, January 21, 1843.
DR. BENJAMIN BRANDRETII:
Owing to you a debt of gratitude that mo
ney cannot pay. I ain induced to make a
public acknowledgment of the benefit my
wife has derived from your invaluable Pills.
About three years this winter she was taken
with a pain lin her acle, which soon became
very much inflamed, and swollen, so mach
that , we became much alarmed, and sent
for the doctor. During his attendance the
pain and swelling increased to an alarming
degree, and in three weeks from its first
commencing it become a running sore. She
could get no rest at night the pain was so
great. Our first doctor attended her for six
months, and she received no benefit what
ever, the pain growing worse and the sore
larger all the time. He said if it was healed
up it would be her death, but he appeared
to be at a loss how to proceed, and my poor
...vile still continued to suffer the most terrible
first saw it that he could soon cure the sore
and give her ease at once. To our surprise
lie gave her no relief, and acknowledged that
it quite baffled all his mill.
'Thus we felt atter having tried during one
'whole year the experience of two celebrated
physicions in vain, in absolute despair. My
poor wife's constitution rapidly failing in
the prime of her years from her continued
suffering. Under these circumstances we
concluded that we would try your Universal
Vegetable Pills, determined to fairly test
their curative effects. To my wife's great
comfort the first few doses afforded great re
lief of the pain. Within one week to the
astonishment of ourselves and every one who
knew the case, the swelling and the infla
mation began to cease so that she felt quite
easy, and would sleep comfortable, and sir,
after six weeks' use she was able to go thro'
the house and again attend to the manage
ment of her family, which she had not done
for nearly fourteen months. In a little over
two months from the time she first commen
ced the use of your invaluable Pills her ancle
was quite sound, and her health better than
it had been in quite a number of years be
fore. I send you this ttatement atter two
years test ot the cure, considering it only an
act of justice to you and the public t.t large.
W e are with much gratitude,
TIMOTHY & EI.IZA A. LITTLE.
PS.— The Botanical Doctor pronounced I
the sore cancerous, and filially said no good
could be done, unless the whsle of the flesh
was cut off and the bone scraped. Thank a
kind Providence, this made us resort to your
Pills, which saved us from all further mis
ery, and for which we hope t T o be thankf L. ul.

The following thoughtful little poem is from the
pen of Charles Swain, and appears in a late number
of Frazer's Magazine:
" 'Twas Yesterday."
"'Twas yesterday!" familiar sound,
Heard oft as idle breath;
Yet, prophet-like to all around,
It spoke of woe and death !
A mourner by the past it stands,
In mistic mantle of decay,
Shrouds in the night of years its hands,
And grasps all life away !
High from the boundless vault of Time
The stars of empire veer ;
"'Twos yesterday" they hearted sublime,
The mightiest in their sphere!
"Fwaa yesterday revealed to Fate
The rival crows of centuries flown,
Show'd where a phantom sat in state,
Upon the Comes throne!
Sceptre and robe were cast aside!
The ghastly bones stood bare ;
The rust fed on the gauds of pride,
The worm held council there.
Nor answer would the phantom give,
But to our constant prayer replied—
<, Thus 'twill be said of all that live
That < yesterday' they died !"
Where is the Grecian conquests now,
The triumphs of her lute?
Dust rests on the Homeric brow,
Her genius is mute !
Where the glorious heart that fought
For freedom in the «pose of Gorve ?"
Gone—where the mightiest names are sought—
With yesterday of yore!
We hope—but what we hope the shroud
Wraps from our weeping sight:
Wo aim at stars, and clasp the cloud,
Seek day, and find but night!
Ah ! who with Life's dread woes would cope,
If 'twere not for that Faith sublime,
Which sees the Ararat of Hope
Above the floods of time?
What, then, is "Yesterday ?” a key
To wisdom most divine!
It is the hall of Memory,
Where Fame's brief trophies shine !
The spiritual home of things,
Where Intellect immortal beams,
Which lends to thought its holiest wins.
Inspires the noblest themes !
A rtnnr - unrrersibl i tlrrtr&frt;
Then mingles with the earth;
A star front Time's vast empire hurled,
Slow falling from its birth,
A presence with the sacred past
To warn our spirits of delay,
Which saith, " Proud man, to-day thou haat—
Use well thy little day !"
Who is it-- ,, gentle reader," who
That labors hard in pleasing you,
By telling all that's strange and new!
Who is it brings you from afar,
Intelligence of bloody war,
Or feats of some immortal tail
Who tells you of th' affairs of state,
Whilst legislators legislate,
And are engag'd in warm debate?
Who is it, that with stick and rule,
Chastises well tho knave and fool,
And keeps in awe the party tool
By whom is it that !canting's got,
And genius to perfection brought—
O ! reader, say—say, is it not
The Printer ?
Say, ye who always wish to know
Ilow the concerns of nations go—
Who do you for that knowledge o he Pr
Ye politicians, too, can tell
Who makes you understand so well
Th' affairs on which you love to dwell—
Then, in no case, should you delay,

With punctuality to pay

He sleeps, the quiet sleep of death
Upon yon grassy mound,
While the low soft breeze of evening sweeps
Thro' the forest trees around !
He calmly sleeps ! Oh, ye who dared
Assail his honor'd name,
Who strove with impious hand to tear
His well-earned wreath of fame,
Go view his sacred resting place
And kneeling on the sod,
Pray with a voice of fervent prayer
Forgiveness from your God.

Tis not the white and red
Inhabits in your cheek, that thus can wed
My mind to adoration."
I found myself looking with some interest at the
back of a lady's head. The theatre was crowded,
and I had come in late, and the object of my curi
osity, whoever she might be, was listening very at
tentively to the play. She did not move. I had
time to hold a lifetime romance about her before I
had seen a feature of her face. But her ears were
small and of an exquisite oval, and she had that
rare beauty of woman—the hair arched and joined
to the white neck with the same finish on the tem
ples. Nature often slights this part of her master
The curtain dropped, and I stretched eagerly for

she sat next one of the slender pilasters, and with
her head leaned against it, remained immovable.
I left the box and with some difficulty made my
way into the crowded pit. Elbowing, apologizing,
persevering, I at last gained a point where I knew I
could ace my incognita at the most advantage. It
turned—pshaw !----how was it possible I had not
recognized her !
There was no getting out again, for a while at
least, without giving offence to the crowd I had
jostled so unceremoniously. I sat down—vexed—
and commenced a desperate study of the figure of
Shakspeare on the drop-curtain.
Of course I had been a lover of Miss CrediforiPs,
or I could not have turned with indifference from
the handsomemost woman in the theatre. She was
very beautiful—there was no disputing. But wo
love women a little for what we do know of them,

,Ireulathig liberty, in which we
for the seine volume. no pretty even le the me.-
lint 1 math, in tier perusal. A little quarrel sufficed
as an excuse for the closing of the book and both of
us studiously avoided a reconciliation.
As I sat in the pit, I remembered suddenly 11 mold
on hor left cheek, and I turned toward her with the
simple curiosity to know whether it was visible at
that distance. She still leaned immovably against
the alight column, and her dark eyes, it struck me,
were moist. Her mouth, with this peculiar expres
sion upon liar countenance, was certainly inexpres
sibly sweet—the turned down corners ending in
dimples which in that particular place, I have al
ways observed, are like wells of unfathomable mel
ancholy. Poor Kate!—what was the matter with
her. _ .
As I turned back to my dull study of the curtain,
a little pettish with myself for the interest with
which I had looked at an old flame, I detected half
a sigh under my white waistcoat ; but instantly per
suading myself that it was a disposition to cough,
coughed, and began to hum "mord tromba." The
i curtain rose and the play went on.
It was odd that I had never seen Kate in that
humor. I did not think she could be sad. Kate
Crediford sad! Why, she was the most volatile,
light-hearted, care-for -nothing coquette that ever
held up her finger to lie kissed. I wonder, has any
one really annoyed you, my poor Kate ! thought I.
Could I, by chance, be of any service to you—for,
after all, I owe you something! Looked at her
Strange that I had over looked at that face with
out emotion. The vigils of an ever-wakeful, ever
passionate, yet ever-tearful and melancholy spirit,
seemed set, and kept under those heavy and mo
tionless eye-lids. And she, as I saw her now, was
the very model and semblance of the character that
I had all my life been vainly seeking! This was
the creature I had sighed for when turning away
from the too mirthful tenderness of Kate Crediford!
There was something new, or something for the
moment miswritten, in that &manor countenance !
I made my way out of the pit with some dillicul
ty, and returned to sit near her. After a few min
utes a gentleman in the next box rose and left the
seat vacant on the other side of the pilaster against
which she leaned. I went round while the orches
tra were playing a long march, and, without being
observed by the thoughtful beauty, seated myself in
the vacant place.
Why did my eyes flash and moisten, as I looked
upon the small white hand lying on the cushioned
barrier between us! I knew every vein of it, like
the strings of my own heart. .1 had felt it spread
out in my own, and followed its delicate blue trace
ries with a rose stem, for hours and hours, while
imploring, and reproaching, and reasoning over
love's lights and shadows. I know the feel of every
one of those fingers—those rolled up rose-leaves,
with notes like pieces cut from the lip of a shell!
Oh, the promises I had kissed in oaths on the little
chef d'..cuvre of nature's tinted alabaster I—the
psalms of sermons I had sat out holding it, in her Ol
ds pow I—the moons I had tired out of the sky.
making of it a bridge for our hearts passing back
ward and forward! And how could that little
wretch of a hand, that knew me better than its own
other hand, (for we had been more together,) lie
there, so unconscious of my presence ! How could
she—Kate Crediford—ait next to me, as she was do
ing, with only a stuffed partition between us, and
her head leaning on one side of the pilaster, as mine
on the other, and never start, nor recognize, nor be
at all aware of my neighborhood. She was not
playing a part, it was easy to see. Oh, I knew
those little relaxed fingers too well! Sadness, indo
lent and luxurious sadness, was expressed in her
countenance, and her abstraction was unfeigned and
contemplative. Could she have so utterly forgotten
me, magnetically, that is to say? Could the at
mosphere about her, that would once have trembled
betraying at my approach, like the fanning of an
angel's invisible wing, have lost the sense of my
I tried to magnetise her hand. I fixed my eyes
on that little open palm, and with all the intensity
I could summon, kissed it mentally in rosy centre.
I reproached the ungrateful thing for its dullness,.
and brought to bear upon it a focus of old memories
of—pressures and caresses, to which a stone would
scarce have the heart to be insensible.
But I belie myself in writing this with a smile,
1 watched those unmoving fingers with a heart ache.
I could not see the face, or read the thought of the
woman who had once loved me, and who sat near
me, now, so unconsciously—but if a memory had
stirred, if a pulse had quickened its beat, those fine
ly strung lingers I well knew would hay* trembled
responsively. Had she forgotten me altogether !
Is that possible—can a woman close the leaves of
her heart over a once loved and deeply written name,
like the waves over a vessel's track—like the air
division of a bird's flight !
I had intended to speak presently to Miss Credi
ford, but every moment the restraint became greater.
I'felt no more privileged to speak to her than the
stranger who had left the seat I occupied. I drew
back, for fear of encroaching on her room, or dis
turbing the fold of her shawl. I dared not speak
to her. And, while I was arguing the matter to
myself, the party who were with her, apparently
tired of the play, arose and left the sb.stre, Kate

and embodied them more coolly in a letter.
You will think, when you look at the signature,

I love to you, it is true. I have been happy with you
and wretched without you; I have thought of you,

time and outward service and adoration ; but I love
you for the first time in my life. Shall Ibe so hap

'There are many chambers in this heart, Kate;
and the spirits of some of us dwell, most fondly
and secretly, in the chamber of tears, avowedly in
the outer and ever-open chamber of mirth. Over
the sacred threshhold, guarded by sadness, much
that we select and smile upon, and follow with
adulation in the walks of life, never passes. We
admire the gay. They make our melancholy
sweeter by contrast, when we retire within our
selves. We pursue them. Wo take them to our
hearts—and if they aro gay only, they aro content
with the unconsecrated tribute which we pay them
there. But the chamber within is, meantime, lone
ly. It aches with its desolation. The echo of the
mirthful admiration without jars upon its mournful
silence. It longs for love, but love toned with its
own sadness--love that can penetrate deeper than
smiles ever como—love that, having once entered,
can be locked in with its key of melancholy, and
brooded over with the long dream of lifetime. But
that deep hidden and unseen chamber of the heart
may be long untenanted. And, meantime, the
spirit becomes weary of mirth, and impatiently
quenches the lire even upon its outer alter, and, in
the complete loneliness of heart that has no inmate
or idol, gay or tearful, lives mochanicaly on.
'Do you gums at my meaning, Kate I Do you
remember the merriment of our first meeting! Do
you remember in what a frolic of thoughtlessness
you first permitted me to raise to my lips those rest

scension, the merry haughtiness, the rallying and
feigned incredulity with which you received my
successive steps of vowing and love-making—the
arch look when it was begun, the laugh when it
was over, the unthing follies we kept up, after vows
plighted and the future planned and sworn to !
That you were in earnest, as much as you were ca
pable of being, I fully believe. You would not else
have been so prodigal of the bestowings of a mai

with the feeling, that, in the hours I had passed

which love could never reacts! how often mourned

WOMAN VS. "LAIlf. " - We have several times in
conversation, been corrected by the fastidiously re
fined for using the word Woman, instead of lady.
"Woman," say they "is a coarse common word."
It's no such thing. It is the bast word in the En
glish language. Suppose Scott, in his noble tribute
to the sex, for their devoted tenderness to us when
under affliction, had written
"Oh, ladies in hours of ease," &c.
would he not have destroyed the richness of the
passage? We think so.
"Ladies," arc, to our mind, creatures of educa
tion, fashion and refinement; made up by the
school-mistress, the dancing master and the dress
maker; things of elegance and grace, which we
may admire without feeling a warmer sentiment.
Accomplished and lovely "woman," however are
beings with warm true hearts, and pure, holy, and
gushing affections, whom to know is not only to
admire, but to revere and love. We tax all our
powers of pleasing a lady—we would if need be,
pour out all our blood like water fora Wom AN:
