Breaking Steers from Running Away
A farmer who had exchanged oxen with
another, found that he had come in poses
sion of a pair of real 'cut and run' fel
lows ; a pair that were not slow either,
nor very particular as to the time or occa•
sion of showing their speed to their pro
Being in the woods one day, and just
ready to hitch to a log, they started for
home, and he after them in pursuit. The
oxen having many feet the start of him,
and the more feet to apply as locomotives, i
soon won the race, and would n't 'heave
too,' till the barn yard brought them up.
The owner said nothing to them when he
arrived, but supplied himself with an ex
tra number of chains, and drove them qui
etly down to the woods. lle then put all
the chains lie hail together, put one end
round a tree and backing the oxen hooked
them on, and then turned away to other
business. In a few minutes the oxen
started again, and being elated at their
former success, started with more 'steam'
than at first ;
little thinking that they
were moored by a chain cable. They
. had made but a leap or two, and began
almost to shout for viociry, when —crack
O: they Caine to a dead stand, and their
necks were almost broken by the sudden
ness of the check. The farmer then mov
ed them to another tree— fastened one end
as before, and coiled the slack of the
chain at the roots.
As soon as the pain was a little over,
they thought they would try a new 'gal
lopade.' Hardly had they got a fair start
when the chain began to straighten, and
they were brought 'all standing.' This
was even too much for the patience of an
ox, and one of them roared right out with
pain and vexation, and they, probably,
mutually resolved to reform their habits,
for they never tried to run away again.
The species of cranberry most com
monly found in the United States, has
been described as an indigenous low trailing
vine, growing wild in bogs and meadows,
bearing a beautiful red berry of an ex
ceedingly sour though pleasant taste,
which is much used in domestic economy
for tarts and sweatmeats. Mr. Kendrick,
of Boston, says the cranberry is a plant
of easy culture, and not a doubt exists
that meadows which are now barren
wastes or yielding nothing but coarse
herbage, might be converted into profita
ble cranberry fields, with but little ex
pense. According to Loudon, an Eng
lish writer, Sir Joseph Banks introduced
the cranberry into that country from
America, and 1831 raised 3 1-2 Winches
ter bushels on a square of 18 feet each
way ; which is rather more than equal to
469 bushels to an acre. Any meadow, it
is said, will answer for their growth.—
They grow well on sandy bogs, after
draining. If bogs are coffered with bush
es they should be removed, but it is not
necessary to remove rushes, as the strong
. roots of the cranbery soon overpower them.
It would be well however if the land
could be ploughed previous to planting
with cranberries. Capt. Henry Hull, of
Barnstable, who has cultivated them for
more than 20 years, usually speeds beach
sand on his bogs and digs holes four feet
distant each way the same as for corn,
though somewhat deeper. In the holes
he plants sods of cranberry roots, and
in the space of three years the whole
ground is covreed with the vines. The
planting is usuall performed in Autumn,
when the bogs are drier and can be better
dug or ploughed than at any other season
of the year.

rank as authors.
This elegant and popular monthly peri
odical was established in July, 1843, by
the union of the 'World of Fashion,' and
F. Quarre's 'Arstist,' and has already at
tained the reputation in our great cities the
text book of Fashion and literature. In
the correctness and beauty of its fashion
plates; in the novelty, splendor and cost
liness' of its other embellishments ; and in
the chastened tone and peculiarly refined
and femenine character of its literary de
partment, it is conceded that this maga
zine has no superior. Fully equal to the
best three dollar magazines in these re
spects, it is yet but little more than half
their price. The astonishing success has
induced the publisher to •begin the new
year with great and costly improvements.
Accordingly he has determined to employ
a corps ofemale contributors whose uni
ted talents are such as have never before
been employed on any magazine fur •the
sex. The work will not be the reflex of
any one mind. The names of our perma
nent contributers are a guarantee for the
variety, talent and worth of our pages for
1844. Ours will be the only magazine
sustained by the sex. The editorial de
partment will remain with Mrs. Ann S.
Stephens, author of the celebrated $4OO
prize story, "Mary Derwent," and ac
knowledFed to be the most powerful
writer of her sex in this country. Her
story of "Anna Taylor," in our volume
for 1843, has had un astonishing run, and
will be followed by . others more thrilling.
Assissted by her sister authors, she will
be enabled to make this book surpass all
others intended for the ladies, Every
thing of interest to the sex will find an
early insertion in our Oges. An,ong
distinguishing characterestics of this book
will be a series of critical reviews, or por
traits of our female poets, accompanied
by autographs of each individual. These
will be of great value as presenting facts
all would wish to know.
To render this magazine as useful on
the work-table as in the parlor, the pub,
usher has secured the services of an emi
nent author to furnish monthly— begin.
ning with the January number —a Home
Department, in which directions for knit
ting the newest styles of lace, working
Berlin and Persian work and needle work,
and embroidery of all kinds will be given,
together with receipts for compounding
cakes and sweetmeats of every variety,
and, in general, whatever may be useful
to the housekeeper, whether daughter,
wife, or mother to know. This depart.
ment will form, at the end of the year, a
volume in itself, worth twice the subscrip.
tion price.
As this work is intended for the boudoir
as well as the domestic hearth, great pains
have been taken to secure the earliest
reports of the Louden and Paris fashions.
Accordingly this department has been
entrusted to Madame Quarre, who re
ceives from her Parisian correspondents
designs in advance, enabling us to antici
pate every rival, as has been done con
stantly during the past volume. But
while the correct Parisian fashions are
given, care is taken, in the letter press
description, to point out how far these
costumes are suited to our climate, a ne
cessary caution observed by no other co
temporary. In a word, this department
is managed thoroughly, and not usei.Las a
mere catch-penny. Nor are the plates
ever omitted in this magazine, which has
been the only one to publish, in 1843, an
unbroken series of fashions. These plates
ate always originally engraved for us, and
not transferred, as in other cheap maga.
zines, from any other cotemporary.
In the costliness, brilliancy and number
of its other embellishments, this maga
zine shall continue to equal the best three
dollar monthlies. The past is the best
guarantee for the future; and it is consee
dud by the press that,in 1849, we have sur
passed in the novelty of our illustrations.
. colored engraving of
the French lilac published in October—
the mezzotint given in July—and the em
bossed view of West Point in the Novem
ber number are specimens of our enter•
prize on this point ; for the publisher is
resolved that all that capital4taste, and
the skill of our artists can do to embellish
his work shall be done, to render it uni
versally, in country as well as city, the
ladies favorite. The novelly and brillian
cy of our illustrations, form a striking
contrast to the dull monotony of the em
bellishments in other magazines. While
we give, in each number, either a line or
stipple engraving, or one of Sartain's mez
zotints, we publish invariably a third
plate, which is either a colored flower ; an
arabesque pattern; a new style for lace•
work or embroidery; colored birds; em ,
bossed landscapes or boquet colored and
uncolored; portraits printed in color ; or
others of varied, novel and beautiful il
lustrations, designed especially for us by
the eminent French artist, F. Quarre.—
the line and stipple engravings are from
the burins of our most eminent engravers,
done originally for this work, often from
original American pictures. There will
be no coarse lithographs in this work, nor
worn out plates; but our engravings shall
rival those of the best annuals. Among
them Sartin's glorious mezzotints, which
have never been equalled in this country,
and are unattainable in every other lady . 'B
magazine, shall fill a prominent place.
Embossed work of Mr. Leonard. the cele
brated die-sinker, solely engaged for this
work, will also appear at intervals.
The volume, beginning in January 1844,
besides these great improvements, will
appear in a new and beautiful type, cast
expressly for this work. Everything v ill
be done, in short, to make the ' , Ladies
National" an ornament to the centre table,
the companion of the dondoir, and the
home book and instructor of the fire-side.
Time of publication. This magazine
is issued from the office between the 15th
ancl,Both of the month preceeding the one
for which it is dated, or immediately on
the arrival of the steam-ships bringing the
reports of the fashions.
The Cash system, adopted and main
tained by the publisher, enables him to
afford a magazine, in every respect equal
to the old three dollar magazines, at one
third less cost. The price of the "Ladies'
.National," is, therefore, only two dollars
perannum, cash, in advance. Each sub
subscriber, at the end of the year, is no•
titled of the expiration ot• his term, when,
if the subscription is not renewed, he is
no longer served. This is far better than
forcing the book on a suuscriber, if he ne
glects to notify the publisher at the end of
the year. Let it be remembered that this
is the only:magazine, similar in embellish
ments and literary character to the three
dollar monthlies, which is afforded under
their price. It is the intention of the pub
lisher throughout the year, and not for
January and February only, a meritorious

No Quackery ! ! 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 cpre of
diseases of the Lungs, and some have no
doubt been found very useful, bat 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
Surprising Virtues
Of this Balsam, that even in the advanced
stages of 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 nil hopes of recovery had been dis
paired of.
In the first stage of fhe disease, termed
Catarrhal Consumption, originating from
neglected COLDS, it has been used with un
deviating success, and hundreds acknowl
edge they owe the restoration of their health
to this invaluable medicine alone, in that
form of consumption so prevalent amongst
delicate young females, commonly termed
debility, or
.1 Going into a Decline,"
A complaint with which thousands are lin
gering, it has also proved highly successtul,
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. 0,7. For particulars see
Dr. Wistor's treaties on consumption, to be
had agents.
A SURPRISING CuaE.---Among 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 feartul 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, site commenced the (use 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 was gra
dually suppressed, and every day appeared
to add fresh vigor to her looks, and now, in
the place of that emaciated for* withering
to decay, she is seen mingling in society, in
better health than she has enjoyed for years.
DISINTERESTED TEsTistoxy.----Having
witnessed the sui prising efficacy of Dr.
Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, in the
case of Mrs. Austin, I cheerfully acknowl
edge the above statement to be true and cor
rect. J. C. WALTERS, M. 1).
LIVER COMPLAINT.---Mrs. Eliza Thomp
son was afflicted with this complaint for
nearly five years, during which time she was
under the most skilful physicians—had tried
Mercury, Botanic and Homcepathic renr
dies, and every thing that offered her any
hopes of relief. She had dull, wandering
pains in her side, sometimes in the shoulder
and small of the back, a hacking cough, fre
quent pains in the breast, and had been una
ble to sleep on her right side for three years.
By the use of this Balsam she was cured in a
few weeks, and remains well to this clay.
