    The Rich alercAsini.
It was late at night, and the streets
were nearly deserted, the more especially
as it was snowing fast. A single trav
eller, however' might have been seen'
wrapped in a thick overcoat, urging his
way against the tempest, by the light of
the dun lamps. Suddenly, its he passed •
a ruinous tenement the figure of a girl
started up before him.
"Please' sir," she said, if it's only a
penny—mother is sick, and we have eat
nothing to-day."
The first impulse of the moment was
to go on : his second to stop. lie looked
ut the girl. lien face was thin and pale,
and her garments scanty. Ile was a
man of good impulses, so he put his hand
towards his pocket, intending to give her
a shilling. She saw the act, and her
lustreles eyes brightened. But the trav
eller had forgot that his overcoat was
buttoned tightly over his pocket.
"It is too much trouble," he said to
himself," and this wind is very cutting.—
Besides, these beggars are usually cheats.
I'll warrant this girl wants the money to
spend in a gin shop." And speaking
aloud, he said, somewhat harshly, "I
have nothing fur you :if you are really
destitute; the Guardians of the Poor
will take care of you."
The girl shrank back without a word,
and drew her tattered garments around
her shivering . farm. But a tear glittered
on her cheek in the light of the dim lamp.
The man passed on, and turning the
next corner, soon kocked at the door of
a splended mansion, through whose rich
curtained windows a rosy light stream
ed out across the storm. A servant ob
sequiously gave him entrance. At the
sound of his footstep the parlor door was
hastily opened, and a beautiful girl appa.
rently about seventeen, sprang into his
arms, kissed him on his cheek, and then
began to assist him in removing his over
" What kept you so long, dear papa "
she said, If I had known where you
were I would have sent the carriage.—
You never stay so late in the office."
"No my love, I was at my lawyer's—
busy very buoy, and all for you," and he
kindly patted her cheek. " But now,
Maggy, ean't,you give me some slipper ? "
The daughter rang the hell, and order
ed the supper to be served. It was such
a °fleas an epicure might delight in, just
the supper tut' a traveller oil a night like
"Pa." said the daughter, when it was
finished, " I hope you are in a good hu
mor, for I have a favor to ask of you,"
and she threw her arm, around his neck
and looked up in his Lice, with that wia
!ling smile and those beautiful dark eyes
of hers. " I wish to give a ball on my
birth-day —my eighteenth birth-day.— It
will cost, oh I a sight of money, but you're
a kind good papa, and I know you have
been successful or you would not have
been to your lawyers."
" Yes my darling,"he said, fondly kis
sing her, " the cotton speculation has
turned out well. I sold all I had of the
article this afternoon, received the money
and took it to my laywer'a telling him to
invest it in real estate. i think I shall
soon give ap business."
"Ohldo do papa. But you'll give me
this ball—won't you t"
" You little tease," said the father, but
he spoke smilingly ; and putting his hand
• in his pocket book, he took out a note fur
five hundred dollars, and placed it in his
child's hand. "Take this, if it is not
enough, you must have another I suppose.
But don't trouble ins about it any more."
The nest morning broke clear, but the
snow was a foot deep on the level, and,
here and there, lay in huge drifts,blocking
up the door ways. At ten o'clock the rich
Merchant was on his way to his counting
room. He turned down to the same street
up which he had come the preceeding
evening. A crowd had gathered round
the open cellar door of a ruined tenement.
The merchant paused to inquire what
was the matter.
" A woman, sir, has been found dead
below there," said one of the spectators :
she starved to death, it is said, and they
have sent fur the coroner. Her daughter has
just come back, after being out all night.
I believe she was begging. That's her,
"Ali said the merchant; and a pang
went through his heart like an ice-bolt,
•tor he remembered denying a petition
er the night before. Ile pushed though
the crowd and descended the steps.—
A girl covered over an emaciated corpse,
that lay on a heap of straw, in one corner
of the damp apartment. It was the same
girl he had feared it would prove. The
merchant was horror struck.
" My poor child," he said, laying his
hand on her shoulder, " you must be ca.
red for—God forgive me fur denying you
last night. Here—take this," and he
put a bill in her hand.
The girl looked up and gazed vacant
ly at him. Then she put back the proff
ered money.
"It will do no good now, she acid,
" mother is dead," and she burst into hys
teric tears.
And the merchant, at that moment,
would have given half his fortune to have
recalled her to life.
The lesson thus learned he never for
got. The merchar,t personally saw that
a decent burial was provided for the
mother and afterward took the daughter
into his house, educated her fora respect
able station in life, and en her marriage
presented her with a prnpet: dowry.—
He lived to hear h , r children lisp their
Which will you do?
One of two things must be done in this
country. Parents must expend money
to educate children, or they must pay
tales to build penitentiaries anti to pun
ish crime. There is a great mistake
about what is called education. Some
suppose every learned man is an educa
ted man. No such thing.— That man is
educated who knows himself, and who
takes accurate common sense views of
men and things around him. Some very
learned men, now are the greatest fools in
the world ; and the reason is they are
not educated men, Learning is the only
means, not the end : its value consists in
giving the power of acquiring the dis•
cipline which when properly managed,
it gives the mind. Some of the greatest
men in the world were not over stocked
with learning, but their actions proved
they were thoroughly educated. NVosh
ington, Franklin, Sherman, were of this
class ;and similar though less striking
instances may now he found in all coun
tries. To be educated a man must he
able to reason, compare and decide accu
rately. He may study metaphysics till
he is grey, and if he is nothing more, he
is an uneducated man. There is no
class in the country who have a stronger
interest in the proper education of it
then than farmers, and the suhjtct shoe Id

How important it is that you commence
without lass of time with BR ANDRETH
PILLS. They mildly but 'surely remove all
impurities frcm 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. Com:is and Cottons
are more benefiitted by , the Brundreth Pills
than by Lozenges and Candies. Very well,
perhaps, as Ind liatives, 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, intectious or oth
erwise, will certainly be cured by the use of
these all-sufficient Pills.
SING SING, JIIIIUgry 21, 1843.
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 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 time weeks from its firs;
commencing it became a running sore. She
gould get no rest at night the pain was so
treat. 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 Butannical doctor, who said when he
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 stall.
Thus we felt atter having tried during one
whole year the experience of two celebrated
physicions hi 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
kneurthe case, the swelling and the infla
maim began to cease so that she felt quite
easy, and would sleep comfortable, and sir,
! after six weeks' use she was able to go Own'
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
t red the use of your invaluable Pills her ancle
was quite sound, and her health better than
i) had been in quite a number of years be
fore. I send you this statement atter two
, years test : oh the cure, considering it only an
act ofjusuce to you and the public et large.
W e are with much gratitude,
Very I espectfully,
PS —The Botanical Doctor pronounced
the wire cmccrous, and finally said tic) good

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 to be thankful.

The perfectly safe, unerring and suc

of disease by the use of Dr MovvATs
Lira MEDICINES, is no longer an experi

many thousand patients will satisfactorily

less by their physicians. Such happy re.
sultsare a source of great pleasure to Dr.
M., and inspire him with anew confidence
1 1 to reecommend the use of his medicines to
his fellow citizens.
The LIFE MEDICINES area purely VE , i
CIETABLE preparation. They are mild and
pleasant in their operation, and at the
same time thorough--acting rapidly upon
the secretions of the system—car rying oft .
all acrimonious humours, and assimilating
and purifying the blood. Fur dais reason ,
in aggravated cases of Dyspepsia, the
Life Medicines will give relief in a shorter
space of time than any other prescript ion.
In Fever and Ague, inflammatory Rheu
matism, Fevers of every description, Sick
Headaches, Heartburn, Dizziness in the
Head, Pains in the Chest, Flatulency, Im
paired Appetite, and in every disease ari
sing from impurity of the blood, or a dis
ordered state of the stomach, the use of
these medicines has always proved to be
beyond doubt, greatly superior to any
other mode of treatment.
All that Dr. Mullett asks of his patients
is to he particular in taking them according
to the directions. It is notby a newspaper
notice, or by any thing that he may say in
their favour, that he hopes to gain credit.
It is alone by the result of a fair trial. Is
the reader an invalid and does he wish to
know whether the Life Medicines will
suit his own case I If so, let him call at
the office of the agent, and procure a copy
of the Good Samaritan, published aratui

by auction, it seems proper for the subscri
ber, (who has held these sales for the past
eighteen months) to state that notwithstand
ing this combination, the sales will not be
' stopped, but on the contrary, as he will now
rely more than ever on the patronage of the
country Merchants, the sales will be held
every Tuesday mortung,at the auction store,
208 Market Street, and his arrangements
with the Manufacturers, both of this city
and all New England. are such as to insure
him a constant and full supply of every de
scription of goods.
The mere fact of so great an effort beicki
made to put down these sales, is the best
evidence the country Merchants can have,
that it is for his interest to sustain them.
