We do not know how much we love Until we come to leave ; An aged tree, a common flower, Ar‘e . things o'er which we grieve There is a pleasure in the pain, That brings us back the pant again. We linger while wo turn away, We cling while we depart: And memories unmarked till then, Come crowding round the heart. Let what will lure our onward way, Farewell's a bitter word to say. ORIGINAL TALE. Coinposed fn• the Huntingdon Journal. THE RESURRECTIONIST. A TEMPERANCE TALE, EY J. ALFRED SHADE, M. D. CAHPTER I. "Night, sable goddess! from her ebon throne In rayless majesty, now stretches forth Her leaden sceptre o'er a slumbering world. • • • • • • • Tempest mounts his rushing car, and throws His billowy mist amtast • • • • • • • _ _ . We go to the place of graves where side by side The prince lies down with the plebian slave. The word resurrectionist is variously applied.— The Persian, Parr, and German Renovating Pills ire said to be resurrectionists in their way. Some Physicians aspire to the title. Believers in the doc trine of the resurrection of the dead are called resur rectionists in contradistinction to unbelievers of this portion of theology. Tho various medical colleges of the country have attached to them individuals whose business it is to furnish material for the dissecting knife of the anatomist ; in other words, to procure defunct bodies from graveyards, under the canopy of night to supply an opportunity of ocularly demonstrating the composition and mechanism of the human system. To this latter delectable class I once belonged. In the pursuit of my occupation I had been out in many a stormy night, and had embraced many an icy heart and was never known to quail. The demonstrator of the college and my companions unanimously regarded me as n choice, indomitable spirit. In every profession there are degrees of distinction ; in this particular one, I had ascended to the topmost round of the ladder of Fame. I was usually the find who knew the whereabouts of the recent dead. In the thronged burying place it was seldom any difficulty occurred to my experienced eye in detecting the mound of the fresh corpse; and then, no stouter heart, or more muscular arm was found to disencumber it of clay, coffin and shroud, and elevate it to the earth. My companions at this juncture took charge of the liberated body, and saw it safely delivered, so that to the graveyard my business was emphatically con fined. I do not think proper to intimate to any one the length of time I was engaged in this calling, nor the amount of business I transacted during that time. These are topics altogether irrelevant. I will briefly state that with the profoundest conviction of the intrinsic utility of the resurrectionist to man kind, I have been led to discontinue the occupation. The following remarks will unfold the came. One cold November night 55 darkness was at its pulseless noon." Not a solitary star twinkled in the black concave of heaven. A sable pall was upon the face of creation. A dampness filled the atmosphere so dense, as to dim, and in many places utterly extinguish the flickering lights of the fine streets in W. Most of the city were slumbering. about ono o'clock its the morning three of us, (the bravest resurrectionists attached to the college of %Th) jet out to visit a well known depository of the dead at a short distance. A culprit from one oi.the prisons had beets executed and buried a few hours ago. 'rho task of disinterring him was confided to myself by the two companions who accompanied me, while they proceeded to perform a similar duty in a different part of the enclosure. In the course of an hour we engaged to meet at the eastern en trance to the yard, where we had previously met on occasions of this kind. And thus we separated. had scarcely reached the grave of the culprit where was the duty assigned me, before the coming of a storm in the distance was heard. The black ness of the night, grew if possible, more dismal and profound. The wind began to moan heavily through the adjoining shrubbery. The rain descen ded in torrents and I applied myself with rigor to the task before me. Several times I fancied I could discern the sound of voices in the vicinity. I demis ted from any work, but the sound ceased, and being by no memos superstitious I proceeded. The task I had undertaken was a formidable one. From the uDaa., szYwzztzitiLra ;a, aE1341€33,. dampness of the preceding day, and the rain, the earth was heavy and compact, the grave was large, and my advantages of position inconsiderable, but I was not to be intimidated. " Toil, death, and danger I defied." My mattock struck the coffin. A low sepulchral groan followed the stroke. Could Ibe deceived, was the man living, or had some phantom warrior come hither to dispute for the prize I was in quest of I struck the lid of the mysterious chamber of the culprit again; the stroke reverberated, but subsi ded, and all was again quiet. I persevered in my undertaking, but never before had I labored under such an unaccountable disquietude of feeling. I had known the individual whose corpse I was about to disinter. We had been schoolmates, but were never friends, on the contrary, ever enemies. I had uniformly manifested a disapprobation of his early vices, which when matured, resulted in the perpe tration of the crime of munler,and brought him incon sequence to the scafford and the dishonored grave from which I was about to liberate him. And although I had given relief of this kind to many an hardened villian, while the darkness of night and the elemental war of nature was around me, and felt no fear; yet I began to wish I had not under taken this particular enterprise single-handed and alone. At least, I hoped a speedy and successful ttunination of it, and hence I became in my efforts to complete the business vastly more vigorous and sedulous than usual. I exerted myself to the utmost. Soon the clay was all removed. I had applied my instrument to displace the lid of the coffin, when another stifled sob or groan was hee,d. Attributing this however to the treacherous wafting of a strong breeze which had been blowing for some time, with one rude endeavor I hurled aside the cover which had concealed the inanimate murderer. Immedi ately a clear undisputable groan fell upon the organ of my ear. I felt something jostle me. The corpse, in the habiliments of death rose upright and esca ped. The clouds that had overcast the sky sud denly withdrew ; the bright stars and pale moon thoughthe sun ;vas _hebelddistitctly indescribable, terrific serpents wheeling upon im mense wings through the air, each shaping its ec centric flight towards the open grave where I had fallen through fear, and was now extended motion less and speechless. Ono by one the serpents reached the chamber in which I lay. They entered it and twined themselves thick around me. Anon, I felt the earth begin to tremble beneath me. Grad ually it sunk, and I descended for an indefinato space of time to the centre of the globe. CHAPTER IL Now, toward the gates of hell the sulphurous way Explore." In the centre of the globe was a boundless ocean of liquid sulphur, whose waves, huge, ponderous and turbid, were tossed by the wildest commotion. Tho roar of this mighty sea could be accurately compared to nothing but a continuous peal of the loudest thunder. Eternally it lifted up its giant voice, and its noise seemed to fill the universe, being to the imagination nothing but the funeral dirge of the ruined souls of earth. Rocks of the most gi gantic size and terrible aspect, frowned on the bor ders of lone islands that were interspersed on the bosom of the omnipotent flood. The islands them selves, wero barren ; they bore not a single flower or trace of vegetation. They gave signs of life, but only signs. In short they appeared to be inhabi ted by shadows—forms without substance, whose existence however was indisputable. Here truly " Black spirits, but no white Blue spirits, but no gray." The character of these shades was that of enor. mous dark winged serpents, or dragons, with webbed feet and talons of prodigious dimensions. Their eyes were fiery and penetrating to the utmost , and they never closed ; but, continually rolled mild ly in their orbits as if the entire horrors of eternal despair were fully exposed to their view. The tem perature of the place was that of hell; and when I was borne off upon the pinions of one of these visible, but unnatural creatures, across the dark sea for many leagues, and placed onboard of an exten sive giant vessel uncles full sail upon this myste rious main, I felt something of relief, from the pros pect however obscure, that the vessel would ulti mately land amid other scenes. I was no sooner arrived upon the deck 'Adds spacious barque, (where I encountered the culprit whose corpse had escaped me, and others with whom I was once intimate) titan a serpent of the most glossy black color, and superlative elasticity twined itself round my limbs and bound mo immoveable. The vessel itself was constructed of a material with which I was wholly unacquainted, but its color was black as midnight, and every object within was similar in appearance except a thousand tires which shot up from as many points of the ship, and were white as driven snow, threatening in the end to consume the vessel, mos. sive and unwieldy as it was. The associations pro duced in the mind by the phenomenon of these striusge fires gave ten-fold intensity to the heat which emenated from their foal. Ono was surrounded by what appeared to be stainless snow," but felt at the same time a heat which the bursting of eternal tire could not possibly surpass. Not only was the sensation of feeling thus tortured to the last extrem ity, but every sense was proportionably punished.— In addition to the heat of the circunsambient at mosphere, it was also loaded with the most offensive dim is. The vision was shocked by the ghastliest sights. The hearing was unspeakably tormented; amid the hoarse bellowings of the angry ocean, the noise of the ship's crew, (who were invisible) might be heard to reverberate along the decks fearfully. The tempestuous thunder of the stormy sea on which we were sailing was not to be compared to the tumultuous sounds within the vessel. The in- visible crew it seemed trod upon some heavy crutch• es, for the noise of their progress through the ship was so conspicuous and peculiar, being a kind of dull, dragging, mototary sound. At various inter vals the rude falling of heavy chains upon the docks met the ear, followed, or not, by wild shrieks suffi- dent to pierce the most obdurate heart. Sometimes when we would be riding along comparatively tran quil, an immense weight would fall with a thunder ing noise, as though from heaven upon the upper deck, and this would bo succeeded by the terrific tramping of the crew from ono apartment of the ship to another. Any interim that occurred was filled up by the incessant lashing of the great ocean against the sides of our floating prison-house. The spray of that ocean was unlike that of other oceans; it was scalding hot, and the idea of being shipwrecked 1 1 in this boiling abyss I could not tolerate. A ship wreck I had always contemplated as a most formida ble disaster, but to be lost on the oceans of earth and go down among the green caves and coral worlds of romance, would have been heaven to my perturbed feelings instead of plunging in this ocean of burning reality. Nevertheless from the raging of the tempest without, and the burning of the fires within the ship this misfortune constantly became more threatening. At length, I began to wish for its accomplishment, hoping that thereby my sufferings might terminate. But it never happened. The ship seemed indestructible, it rode onward—onward —onward for ages, I knew not whither; but contin ually my situation became more desperate, more hopeless. I would have given worlds to have died, yet no symptoms of death appeared for my relief. On the contrary my sensations were becoming inft nitelY more acute; - ukt,PFJOrtind 14 misery was Just at this crisis a most unexpected and extraor dinary event occurred. A gentleman of superb dress and manners with a noble form and intellectu al countenance appeared on hoard. A smile of be nevolence dwelt like sunshine upon his features, and his whole mein betokened the heart of an angel. He seemed to be at liberty ; ho spoke, and, it was done ;he commanded, and it was performed. In stantly my drooping hopes revived. Like a drown ing man I was willing to accept support even though from a straw. And I hesitated not for a moment to connect my ultimate relief and emancipation, with the seasonable appearence of this saintly stran ger in the ship. But, all ! how soon may the bright est star of hope be extinguished ? Accidentally casting my eyes torard the inferior person of my imagined saviour, I observed a huge nausevous tail projecting from beneath his nether garments. Im mediately the truth flashed upon me, he was "the devil in a fashionable garb ;" and upon extending i my observations I discovered the cloven foot,which confirmed my worst . sespicions. In true nautical style, the devil summoned all hands upon deck— discoursed to them awhile in the dialect of the low. er regions, as I suppose, for I understood nothing of the conference, only, that "His Satannic Majesty had come on board for the purpose of piloting us into the bottomless pit, on the confines of which wo were then playing. On this announcement ho placed himself ut the ship's helm. Immediately the roaring of the mammoth ocean ceased ; all be came as calm as it had before been tumultuous.— And we sailed on. The scenery as we progressed, gradually grew more dark and appalling; the rocks more frowning and terrible; the islands more desti tute; the sea more black; the air more oppressive. Finally the current of the sea was observed to as aunts the circular motion of a whirlpool. Our ship began to reel. About this time confused sounds of "weeping and wailing from beneath came floating upon the dark sea. The smell of sulphur filled the air. Our ship revolved gradually faster and faster, going still onward in the immense vortex which en tangled us. Eventually it made one decided plunge and it sunk. CHAPTER 111, "Follow, on fancy's magic pinions follow." The vessel had no sooner sunk than I regained my liberty, exchanging superlative misery for un bounded joy. In other language I was, as I sup posed, in heaven. The sweetest eolian music fell upon my oar. Tho most fragrant odors wore waf ted to my sense. Delicious fountains of limpid water bubbled up before me, gathering into rills, which eventually rolled into magnificient rivers, up on whose bright bosoms and front an infinitude of other points, were continually reflected the most glorious combinations of effulgent light. The air was transparent and balmy, imparting the moat ec static sensations to the inhaler. The softestilowers and most venerable forests adorned the landscape, which was unsurpassingly verdant. Birds of the most brilliant hue, and heavenly song gave an air of magic to the scene. Wherever the eye rosined it was regaled by the choicest and most luxurious fruits, which grew in princely splendor and profu sion upon majestic trees, beneath whose spreading branches innumerable bright forms luxuriated at large. 'rho inhabitants were all of angelic appear ance. Naturally I was entirely enamoured; but, the brightness and glory of paradise began already to vanish from my vision. The harps of the celes tial world ceased their music. The air became less elastic and pure. The flowers faded. The fruits withered. The beautiful songsters of the groves took flight. I lost sight of heaven ; its peerless inhabitants, and magnificent splendors. And now I became sensible to the last scene.— Awakening from a profound slumber I found my self in the halls of the old medical college of G. The demonstrator of anatomy and another Physi cian were by the side of a bed on which I was ex tended. On inquiring hastily of my situation, the Physician informed me that I had been labouring under an attack of Delirium Tremens, or Mania ; but was now considered out of immediate danger. My comrade resurrectionists who accom panied me on the eventful night of my story, punctual to our engagement, met at the appointed time and place, but missing me there, suspected some disaster had befallen me, insomuch as I had been observed in the course of the previous evening to indulge unusually free of the bottle, for the purpose of bracing the nerves, as my pluase was. Inane diately they explored their way to the grave of the culprit, whom I had undertaken to disinter. Here they found the supine upon the corpse, where I had fallen' when on the eve of completing my task.— ' The fit was on me ; it lasted, with remissions and exacerbations, three hours, during which periodimy I I morbid intellect elaborated the foregoing fancies, which if they had been. realities could not possibly have affected me more. My attendant Physician providentially was a Washingtonian, and saw St in the treatment of the case to immerse me in a cold bath, which had the effect of inducing sleep to visit my eyelids, and established my wandering senses. I deem it ap it tv propriate to pronounce it providential that my Physician immerged me in the bath, for, about this time I presume it must have been, my disor dered sensorium persuaded me I was plunging into the bottomless pit. Heaven knows how near to this • • et how near me l o g all drunkards as drunkenness brought me to experi i am warranted initssertiieTWi.. - - effect in others. Assuredly, if Delirium Tremens was the only misfortune that followed the use of intoxicating drink, it alone, should be sufficient to deter mankind from the baleful practice. lam happy to affirm that one attack of this formidable affection has constituted me a thorough Washing tonian, and the most contented of men. I ant no longer a resurrectionist, because I am anxious to avoid a mode of life replete with potent temptations to a dereliction from duty. May no unfortunate ineberate follow my example in waiting so terrific a visitation from heaven as Mania-a-Potu to induce them to abstain from strong drink, but at once and forever pledge themselves in the name of Virtue to sober habits. Such is an experimental statement, (with the necessary improvements and additions) as received from the lips of a Baltimore Washingtonian. ZaUZt HOTEL.

Affections of the Liver, Asthma, Bronchitis, Pains or Weakness of the Breast or Lungs, Chronic Coughs, Pleurisy, Hemorrhage of the Lungs, and all affections of the Pulmonary Organs Nature's own Prescripfton. A compound Balsamic preparation of the Prunus Virginiana of .Wild Cherry Bark,' combined with the Extract of Thr, prepa • red by a chemical process, approved and recommended by the most distinguished physicians, and universally acknowledged the most valuable medicine ever discovered. No Quackery I / No Deception. In setting forth the virtues of this truly great medicine, we have no desire to deceive those who are aboring under the affliction, nor do we wish to eulogize it more than it deserves. Yet we look around and see the vast amount of suffering and distress occa sioned by many of the diseases in which this medicine has proved so highly successful, we feel that we cannot urge its claims too strongly, or say too much in its favor. Various remedies it is true have been of fered and puffed into notice for the cure ot diseases of the Lungs, and some have no doubt been found very useful, hot all that have yet been' discovered, it IS admitted by physicians and all others who have witness ed its effects, that none have proved as suc cessful as this. Such, indeed, are the Surprtsing Virtues Of this Balsam, that even in the advanced stages ot Consumption, after all the most esteemed remedies of physicians have failed to effect any change, the use of this medi cine has been productive of the most aston ishing relief, and actually effected cures 'after all hopes of recovery had. dis t•lUorrau& • neglected COLDS, it has been used with um deviating success, and hundreds acknowl edge they owe the restoration of their health Co this invaluable medicine alone, in that form of consumption so prevalent amongst delicate young females, commonly termed debility, or - _ " Going into a Decline," A complaint with which thousands are lin gering. it has also proved highly successful, and not only possesses the power of checking the progress of this alarming complaint, but also strengthens and invigorates the system more effet wally than any medicines we have ever possessed. Besides its suprising efficacy in consump tion, it is equally efficacious in Liver Com plaint, Asthma, Bronchitis, and all affec tions of the Lungs, and has cured many of the mist obstinate cases, atter every other remedy had failed. 117 For particulars see Dr. Wistor's treaties on consumption, to be had of the agents. WHILE LIFE REMAINS WE STILL HAVE SOME HOPE. A SURPRISING CURE.---AMOIIg the many singular cures which this medicine has ef fected, there is perhaps none in which its powers are so fully shown as in the case of Mrs. Austin. This lady has been consumptive for seve ral years, and during the greater part of this time had received the best medical attention, and tried all the most valuable remedies, yet nothing could be found to arrest its progress. She became subject to violent fits of cough ing, expectorated large quantities of matter occasionally tinged with blood, and step by step this fearful disease continued its course, until all hopes of a recovery was des paired of. While in this distressing situa tion, lingering upon the very verge of the grave, she commenced the lase of this Bal sam, which, to use her own expressien, op perated almost like a charm. In a few days she expectorated freely, the cough 'NHS gra dually suppressed, and every day appeared to add fresh vigor to her looks, and now, in the place of that emaciated form withering to decay, she is seen mingling in society, in better health than she has enjoyed for years.
