They mildly but surely rtmove 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 Coccus are more beneffitted by the Brandreth Pills than by Lozenges and 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, intectinusor oth erwise, will certainly be cured by the use of these all-sufficient Pills. CURE OF A C' tNCEROUS SORE. SING SING. January 21, 1843. DR. BENJAMIN BRANDRETII: Honored Sir,— Owing to you a debt of gratitude that mo ney cannot pay. I am 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 in her acle, which soon became very much inflamed, and swollen, so mlch that we became much alarmed, and sent for the doctor. During his attendance the pain and swelling increased to an alarming degree, and in thtee weeks from its first commencing it became 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 wife still continued to suffer the most terrible tortures. We therefore sought other aid, in a Botannical doctor, who said when be first saw it that he could soon cure the sore and give her ease at once. To our surprise he gave her no relief, and acknowledged that it quite baffled all his skill. 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 m wife's great comfort the first few closes 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 dune for nearly fourteen months. In a little over two months from the time she first commen ced the use of your iqvaluablepills her ancle was quite sound, and her health better than if had been in quite a number of years be fore. I send you this statement atter two years test of the cure, considering it only an act of estic,: to you and the public at large. W e are with much gratitude, Very respectfully - , TIiVIOTHY& ELIZA A. LITTLE, PS —The Botanical Doctor pronounced the sore cancerous, and finally said no good could be done, unless the whole 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 fur which we hope to be thankful. T. &E. A. L.

In her bower one eve, sat a maiden fair, Caroling forth a joyous strain, 'Twas borne afar o'er the evening air Till Echo, sweet nymph, sent it back again. Her voice was sweet, and bright was her eye, And merrily, merrily, thus sung Ale— " I care for nobody—no! not I, And nobody cares for me—for me— And nobody cares for me!" ,4 Oh! Love is a wild and devious chace, At best a fair deceitful snare, And men are a false and faithless race, With their vows as light as the empty air." Then her joyous laugh rang loud and high, And merrily, merrily, still sang she— I care for nobody—no! not I And nobody cares for mo—for me-- . And nobody cares for mo ! And who bestow a thought upon A race so false and vain as men? The maiden paused for she thought of one, Right glad were she to see again. Then she breathed a low and gentle sigh, The while she sang, yet still sang she, I care for nobody—no! not I, And nobody care for me—for me— And nobody cares for me! The maiden ceased—'twas a step well known, And a manly form stood by her side; Her snowy hand ho took in his own, And woo'd that fair one for his bride : She gave one glance of her bright black eye, And she sang,and then, " higho" sang she, I cars for somebody now—do I, Since somebody cares for me—for me— Since somebody cares for me! IttIEMIBLLANMOUS. THE STOLEN DRESS. DI MRS. L. N. CHILD. In a city, which shall be nameless, there lived, long ago, a young girl the only daughter of a wid ow. She came from the country, and was as igno rant of the dangers of a city Ds the squirrels of her native fields. She had glossy black hair, gentle, beaming eyes, and 4 . lips like wet coral." Of course, she knew that she was beautiful; for when she was a child, strangers often stopped as she passed, and exclaimed, " How handsome she is!" And as she grew older, the young men gazed on her with ad miration. She was poor, and removed to the city to earn her living by covering umbrellas. She was just at that susceptible age, when youth is passing into womanhood; when the soul begins to be per vaded by that restless principle, which impels poor humans to seek perfection in union. At the hotel opposite, Lord Henry Stuart, an English nobleman, had at that time taken lodings. His visit to this country is doubtless well cement bored by many, for it made a great sensation at the time. He was a peer of the realm, descended from the royal line, and was, moreover, a strikingly hand some man, of right princely carriage. He was sub sequently a member of the British Parliament, and is now dead. As this distinguished stranger passed to and from his hotel, he encountered the umbrella-girl, and and was impressed by her uncommon beauty. He easily traced her to the opposite store, where he soon after went to purchase an umbrella. This was followed up by presents of flowers, chats by the way-side, and invitations to walk or ride; all of which were gracefully accepted by the unsuspect ing rustic. Ho was playing a game, for temporary excitement; she, with a head full of rommice, and a heart melting under the influence of love, was unconsciously endangering the happiness of her whole life. Lord Henry invited her to visit the public gar dens on the 4th of July. In the simplicity of her heart, she believed all his flattering professions, and considered herself his bride elect; she therefore accepted the invitation, with innocent frankness.— But she had no dress fit to appear on such a public occasion, with a gentleman of high rank—whom site verily supposed to be her destined husband.— While these thoughts revolved in her mind her eye was unfortunately attached by a beautiful piece of silk, belonging to her employer. Ah, could she not take it, without being seen, and pay for it secretly, when she had earned money enough I Tho temp tation conquered her in a moment of weakness.— She concealed the silk, and conveyed it to her lodgings. It was the first thing she had ever stolen, and her remorse was painful. She would have car ried it back, but she dreaded discovery. She was not sure that her repentance would be met in a spirit of forgiveness. On the eventful Fourth of July, she came out in her new dress. Lord Henry complimented her up on her elegant appearance ; but she was not happy. On hor way to tho gardens, he talked to her in a manner which she did not comprehend. Perceiv ing this, he spoko more explicitly. The guileless young creature stopped, looked into his face with mournful reproach, and burst into tears. The no bleman took her hand kindly and said, " My dear, are you an innocent girl'l" "I am, I ant," replied she with convulsive sob's. " Oh, what have I ever done, or said, that you should ask me that I" Her words stirred the deep fountains of his better nature. " If you are innocent," said he, 44 God forbid that I should make you otherwise. But you accepted my invitations and presents so readily, that I supposed you understood me." "What could ( understand," said she, "except that you intended to make me your wife!" Though reared amid the proudest distinctions of rank, he felt no inclination to smile. He blushed and was silent. The heartless conven tionalities of life stood rebuked in the presence of affectionate simplicity. He conveyed her to her huinble home, and bade her farewell, with a thank ful consciousness that he had done no irretrievable injury to her future prospects. The remembranee of her would soon be to him as the recollection of last year's butterflies. With her the wound was deeper. In her solitary chamber she wept, in bitter:- nese of heart, over her ruined air castles. And that dress, which she had stolen to make an appearance befitting his bride ! 011, what if she should be discovered ! Andivould not the heart of her poor widowed mother break, if she should ever know that her child was a thief! Alas, her wretched forebodings were too true. The silk was traced to her; she was arrested, on her way to the store, and dragged to prison. There she refused all nourish ment, and wept incessantly. On the fourth day, the keeper called upon Isaac T. Hopper, and informed him that there was a young girl in prison who appeared to be utterly friendless, and determined to die by starvation. The kind hearted old gentleman immediately went to her as sitance. Ile found her lying on the fluor of her cell, with her face buried in he: hands, sobbing as if her heart would break. He tried to comfort her, but could obtain no answer. "Leave us alone," said he to the keeper. "Per haps she will speak tome, if there is none to hear." When they were alone together, he put back the hair from her temples, laid his hand kindly on her beautiful bead, and said in soothing tones, "My child, consider me as thy father. Tell me all thou had done. If thou host taken this silk, let me know all about it. I will do for thee as I would for a daughter; and I doubt not that I can help thee out of this difficulty." After a long time spent in affectionate entreaty, she leaned her young head on his friendly shoulder, and sobbed out, " Oh, I wish I was dead. What will my poor mother say, when she knows of my disgrace ?" " Perhaps we can manage that she never shall know it," replied he; and alluring her by this hope, ho gradually obtained from her the whole story of her acquaintance with the nobleman. He bade her be comforted, and take nourishment; for ho would sec that the silk was paid for, and the prosecution withdrawn. Ho went immediately to her employ er, and told him the story. "This is her first of fence," said be, "the girl is young, and the only child of a poor widow. Give her a chance to re trieve this one false step, and she may be restored to society, a useful and honored woman. I will see that thou art paid for the silk." The man readily agreed to withdraw the prosecution, and said he would have dealt otherwise by the girl, had ho known all the circumstances. "Thou shouldet I have inquired into the merits of the case, my friend ;" replied Isaac. By this kind of thought -1 lessness, many a young creature is driven in the downward path, who might easily have been saved." The good old man then went to the hotel, and inquired for Henry Stuart. The servant said his loardship had not yet risen. " Tell him my busi ness is of importance," said Friend Hopper. The servant soon returned and conducted him to the chamber. The nobleman appeared aurprized that a plain old Quaker should thus intrude upon his luxurious privacy; but when he heard his errand, he blushed deeply, and frankly admitted the truth of the girl's statement. His benevolent visiter took the opportunity to "bear a testimony," as the Friends say, against the sin and selfishness of pro fligacy. He did it in such a kind and fatherly manner, that the young man's heart was touched.— He excused himself, by saying that he would not have tampered with the girl, if he had known her to be virtuous. " I have done many wrong things," said ho, "but, thank God, no betrayal of confiding innocence rets on my conscience. I have always esteemed it the basest act of which roan is capable:" The imprisonment of the pure girl, and the forlorn situation in which she had been found, distressed him greatly. And when Isaac represented that the silk had been stolim for his sake, that the girl had thereby lost profitable employment, and was obliged to return to her distant home, to avoid the danger of exposure, ho took out a fifty dollar note, and of fered it to pay her expenses. "Nay," said Isaac, "thou art a very rich man; I see in thy hand a' large roll of such notes. She is the daughter of a poor widow, and thou host been the means of do ing her great injury. Give me another." Lord I tenry handed him another fifty duller note and smiled as he said, "you understand your busi ness well. But you have acted nobly, and I rever ence you for it. If you over visit England, come to see me. I will give you a cordial welcome, and treat you like a nobleman." "Farewell, friend," replied Isaac, "though much to blame in this affair, thou too host behaved nobly. Mayest thou be blessed in domestic life, and trifle no more with the footings of poor girls; not even with those whom others have betrayed and de serted." Luckily, the girl had sufficient presence of mind to assume a false nein.) when arrested; by which means her true name was kept out. of the newspa pers. "I did this," said she, "for my poor me• thth's sake." With the money given by Lord,Hen ry the silk was paid for, and she was sent home to her mother, well provided with clothing. Her name and place df residence remain to this day a secret in the breast of her benefactor. Several years after the incidents I have related, a lady called at Friend Hopper's house, and asked to see him. When he entered the room, he found a handsomely dressed young matron, with a bloom boy of five or six years old. Site rose to meet him, and her voice choked as she said, " Friend Hop per, do you know me?" Ile replied that he did not. She fixed her tearful eyes earnestly upon him, and said, "You once helped me, when in great distress." But the good missionary of hu . Inanity hod helped too many iti distress to be able to recollect her, without more precise inforniatiori. With a tremulous voice, she bade her son go into the next room for a few Minutes ; theri, dropping on her knees, she hid her face In his lap, and sob bed out, "I am the girl that stole the silk. Oh! where should I now be, if it had not been for you?" When her emotion was somewhat calmed, she told him that she had married a highly respectable man, a Senator of his native State. Having a call to visit the city, she had again rind again passed Friend Hopper's house, looking wistfully at the windows to catch a sight of him ; but when she attempted to enter, her courage failed. "But I go away to•morrow," said she, "and I could not leave the city without once more seeing and thanking him who saved me from ruin." She recalled her little boy, and said to him, " Look at that old gentleman, and remember him well ; for he was the best friend your mother over had."— With an earnest invitation that he would visit her happy home, and a fervent " God bless you," she bade her benefactor farewell. My venerable friend is not aware that I have written this story. I have not published it from any wish to glorify him, but to exert a general in fluence on the hearts of others; to do my mite to ward teaching society how to cast out the Demon Penalty, by the voice of the Angel Love.—Boston Courier. THE DARK EYED MAID, A lovely valley whore the flourishing village of now stands, in 16— was occuped by a circle of cone topped wigwams, before one of which at the close of a sultry afternoon, sat a son of the forest, whose girdle of scalps and hieroglyphic marks told that he was a warrior and chief of high honor. His sinewy arm held forth a string of beads, while his piercing eye looked into those of a young female who eagerly sprang forward on seeing the bubbles. Grasping the treasure wit a laugh of joy and twining them in her hair, she bounded away like a young fawn to join her companions. On tho hill side near by, stood a well formed, fair faced youth, in the garb of a huntsman, leaning on his gun. Through an opening in the trees he had been an unseen witness to what had just passed, and as he gazed upon her who seemed a bird esca ped from Paradise, he shouldered his rifle mid with apparently wearied step approached the spot where the chief still sat, who on seeing him asked: Whence comes the pale face—what seeks he of tho red man?' 'Food and rest,' replied the other; 'three days ago I left Shawmut with a hunting party ; while in search of game I separated from, and being unable to find them, or my way out of the forest, I have since wandered about, and was contemplating an other night in the woods, when through the trees I saw the smoke of your cabin. I am ill ; let me Ile in it, and here is money,' added he; temptingly offering the chief a handful of silver: The chief of rf great people will not take Ms wigwam is open to the hungry, though he be a white face who would rob him of his game. Enter.' The parents of William Raymond came front England with the h.qes of retrieving a lost fortune. By their indulgence, he at an early age had mingled with those circles of fashion that demanded but pa geant for a recommendation. Ho had learned their vices, and had brought to this%untry an unprinci pled heart, combined watts a handsome face and pleasing manners. He was soon seated on a mat in the rough dwell ing of the Indian, who recalled his daughter to tend on him. When William beheld her regular fea tures, snow white teeth, sunny cheek, eyes of such dazzling brightness, as to defy a knowledge of their true color, he thanked faith for placing him in the way of the forestflower. With his usual gallantry he arose at her entrance, when the red man said , This is the daughter of the great chief, the pride of the squaw, the idol of the warrior ! They call her Violet Eye. Fifteen times the birds and flowers have come back since that Great Spirit gave her to me;' turning W her he added, , bring some venison and corn for the pale stranger.' A little time and William joined the games of the Indians; by his daring courage, fleetness of foot, and skill with the rifle, which he presented to the chief, he soon became a favorite with them: For the maiden, whose guileless heart knew no wrong, ' he gathered wild flowers to deck her hair, the bright est plumage for her dress; placed his rings on her fingers, and tied his bright handkerchief round her neck. She, in return, prepared him food, wove him moccasins and smoothed the long, fair curls from his brow, while be talked of love. No cloud obscured the heart of the Violet Eye, but he whose presence made it sunshine scon tired, (21) 1 2 - ,:g CI) J 4 and under the pretence of getting ornaments for her, urged his departure, prOinising to return soon.— She doubted not his sincerity When he pressed her td his heart, and kissed away the tears that mois tened her check. When gone, she sought the loneliest spot to ask the Great Spirit for his safety. Many moons passed, Ad Violet Eye looked in vain the hint She loved. }lei saddened, she no longei cheered they oung warriors in their spas ; her ornaments were thrown aside, save such as had been his gifts. The chief saw the change wrought by tho white man's treachery, and swore revenge on his race.— Soon after he met with ohe Whose sword cromai the tomahawk, and sent his spirit to the happy hunt ing grounds. Violet Eye new the green sod placed over him, and broken-hearted strewed the spot with Mien,: A little time and she too was gone from amidst her people: They mourned but could not bring her back. William Raymond on returning to his friends, who supposed him at a neighboring settlement, no longer loved his forest bride, and never referred to her but to boast of his conquest. • • ..... Five years had passed, and the axe had felled the trees far back into the country ; their places were occupied by pleasant hamlets and cultivated patch; es. Where had echoed the savage yell and shrill screen - 3 of the wild bird, now rise tones of praise and prayer: Much was changed, tien the heart of William Raymohd, hs how for the that time lie rt 3 ally loved, and stied eameitlY for the hand of a beautiful *Oman. "]'was promised; the nuptial day arriied; and friends assembled in the village church. As they approached the rough altar, an Indian maid appeare4 before them: fixing her dark eyes on the female, in a warning voice she said to her Wed him not! or you are cursed. On his soul lies the crime of a broaken heart,' and turning to him added, William Raymond, the Violet Eye, will be upon you; we meet again'—and like a mys terious spirit she glided from the chinch. Treating the occurrence as a maniac's intrusion, the ceremony was performed ; but those tones of threatening evil long rang in tho ears of the wed- ded pair; Nearly two years, and the bright rays of hope had dispelled the fearful cloud that dimmed the bridal day. The savage inhabitants finding their• game dispersed, and themselves driven from their early homes and the graves of their fathers, ever and anon gave evidence of spirits paining for revenge. At the close of a battle in which Many hundreds of the Indian race Were slain, otie stood victorious. On the' bldod-stained snow' ley William Raymond, wounded with a poisonous arrow ; by his side was the graceful form which lie once caressed, and the 1 same voice which spoke at the bridal altar, now i broke upon the ear of the dying man. Williani Raymond, When faint and weary, dark maid of the forest nursed you; by the white man's arts you won her love. Ybur lying heart de ceived—she was no more happy ; tress and flowers looked angry. Ashamed before the people, she left them at the Great Spirit's bidding to revenge her wrongs. She warned the white flOwer that nestled in your treacherous bosom. Her eye fol lowed you—her heart sought revenge, and has found it. 'Thus the hand of the Alolet Eye that poisoned the arrow and sent it to yoUr hrettin. She has brought a Charm—can inakb you well.' Grasping at the shadoW of restoration, he vowed to heroine her slave and think of none other if she would apply it. He called her back to happy days and spoke of future ones, and he half raised himself to take her hand, and sunk back aimed exhausted. She bent over him till their lips nearly met. Had the old limo come o'er her, and her woman's heart relented I No ! Raising herself to the full height, with a laugh of triumph, and a heart unmoved, she replied: You cannot rise to get it—Violet Eye will not give it. You shall die! and ythar scalp hang at the the red man's belt.' Snatching a dirk from his side, she continued- 4 When the Greet Spirit passes you cloud you must die; Think of tho white wife that wishes for you, look on the dark one now by your side. seo !
