Vortical. From the Columbian Magazine. 11101ULOWS HOLIDAY. BY M.. FRANC. B. OSGOOD, Gay girls are wreathing flowers in their hair, Fond lips are breathing The wish—the prayer. Lonely—the laughter, The revel I shun; One stealeth after— How welcome that one. Far away gleaming, The dancers flit by : Here sit we dreaming— Memory and 1. Fair beads of amber, She counteth the while, In the still chamber, With sigh and smile. And as she telleth Her rosary o'er, Wild my heart dwelleth, On hours of yore. Some winged treasure, That flew from my arms, Some perished pleasure Each bead embalms. All hopes I cherished, There find a tomb, One by one perished, In glory and bloom. Sound harp and viol I Spread the bright hours! Life's sunny dial, They count by flowers. They—the light-hearted! Ah! dearer to me, One dream of the parted, Than all their wild glee. Still the past haunts me! 'Mid all hope can say, Memory chants me A lovelier lay. NiSMOVO3IO. A MELTING STORY One wintry evening a country store keeper in the Green Mountain State was about closing his doors for the night, and while standing in the snow out side putting up his window-shutters, he saw through the glass a lounging, worthless fellow within, grab a pound of fresh but ter from the shelf and conceal it in his hat. The act was no sooner detected than the revenge was hit upon, and a very few minutes found the Green Mountain store-keeper at once indulging his appe tite for fun to the fullest extent, and pay ing off the thief with a ferocious sort of torture, for which he might have gain ed a premium from the old inquisition. "I • say, Seth !" said the store-keeper, coming in and closing the door after him, slapping his hands over his shoulders and stamping the snow off his feet. Seth had his hand on the door, his hat upon his head, and the roll of butter in his hat, and anxious to make his exit as soon as possible. " 1 say, Seth, sit down ; I reckon, on such an e-ter-nal night as this, a leetle somethin' wouldn't hurt a fellow." Seth felt very uncertain ; he had the butter, and was exceedingly anxious to be off, but the temptation of something , warm sadly interfered with his repolu tion to go. This hesitation, however, was soon settled by the right owner of the butter taking Seth by the shoulders and planting him in a seat close to the stove, where he was in such a manner cornered in by the barrels and boxes, that while the grocer set before him there was no possibility of getting out, and right in thisvery place sure enough the storekeeper sat down. "Seth, we'll have a little warm Santa Cruz," said the Green Mountain grocer ; so he opened the stove-door, and stuffed in as many sticks as the space would admit ; " without it you'd freeze such a night as this." Seth already felt the butter settling down closer to his hair, and jumped up declaring he must go. "Not till you have had something warm, Seth, Seth, come, I've got a story to tell you too, sit down now ;" and Seth was again pushed in his seat by his cunning tormentor. " Oh ! it's too darned hot here," said the petty thief attempting to rise. " Set down—don't be in such a plaguy hurry," retorted the grocer, pushing him back in his chair. " But I've got the cows to fodder, and some wood to split, and I must be goin," said the persecuted chap. "But you musn't tear yourself away, Seth, in this manner. Sit down; let the cows take care of themselves, and keep yourself cool; you appear to be fidgetty," said the roguish grocer with a wicked leer. The next thing was the production of two smoking glasses of hot ruin toddy, the very sight of which, in Seth's pres ent situation, would have made the hair stand erect upon his head, had it not been well oiled and kept down by the' butter. " Seth, I'll give you a toast now, and you can butter it yourself," said the gro cer with an air of such consummate simplicity that poor Seth still believed himself unsuspected, "Seth, here's— here's a Christmas goose well roasted and basted, eh T I tell you, it's the greatest eating in creation. And Seth, don't you never use hog's fat or com mon cooking butter to baste with—come, take your butter—l mean, Seth, take your toddy." Poor Seth now began to smoke as well as melt, and his mouth was hermetically sealed up as though he had been born dumb. Streak after streak of the but ter came pouring from under his hat and his handkerchief was already soak ed with the greasy overflow. Talking away, as if nothing was the matter, the grocer kept stuffing the wood into the stove while poor Seth sat bolt upright with his back against the counter and his knees almost touching the red hot furnace before. _ "Plagued cold night this," said the grocer. " hy, Seth, you seem to per spire as if you were warm ! Why don't you take your hat offl Here Jet me put your hat away !" " No!" exclaimed poor Seth with a spasmodic effort to get his tongue loose, clapping both his hands upon his hat— " No, I must go ; let me out ; I ain't well ; let me go !" A greasy cataract was now pouring down the poor fellow's face and neck and soaking into his clothes, and trick ling down his body into his very boots, so that he was literally in a perfect bath of oil. " Well, good night, Seth," said the harmonious Vermonter " if you will go!" and adding as he left, " neighbor, I reck on the fun I've had out of you is worth nine pence, so I shant charge you with that pound of butter !" A NEW ITEM IN A BILL, Some forty years ago, while Jerome Bonaparte was travelling through New England-, with a large suite, he stopped over night at the tavern of an avaricious old fellow in one of the beautiful villa ges in western Massachusetts. The landlord was an Englishman born, ultra tory in his feelings; and when he heard in the morning, that he was to have no less a person than a brother of the great Napoleon, with an extensive retinue, for his guests at night, his joy knew no bounds. Extra servants were employ ed in all the rooms, clean sheets were put upon the beds, Chickens and turkeys were run down, and had their necks rung—in short, every preparation was made to give the prince a reception be coming his high rank. Night finally came, and with it came Jerome Bonaparte, with some twenty friends and servants. Here was a wind fall for the old tavern-keeper--here was business for him. Supper was soon served ; the distinguished guests went to bed at an early hour; next morning breakfast was prepared, swallowed, and soon after everything was arranged for their departure. There was one very important duty still to be performed by the tavern-keeper—the making out the bill. Such customers were scarce—Bo naparte seldom visited that section of the country—and Boniface was deter mined to make the most of the present visit. He got along remarkably well with the bill until he had run up to $75. This was not enough. The landlord could not think of letting the brother of the greatest man of the age off short of $lOO. He " figured" it over again, ad ded a little here, and put another 4‘ ex tra"there,but it only amounted to $BO. The bill !—the bill !" was shouted in his ears, but the bill was "not right" as he viewed it. All was bustle and con fusion. The French servants were ,hat tering and bustling about—the carriages were ready to start, and nothing was wanting but the bill. "Why for you no make de billl" ask ed the cashier of the party. " In one minute," replied the landlord, scratching his head. " By ar, you make him quick, or me no pay," continued the Frenchman. " Yes, yes, I hear you," said the land lord, his eye glancing from one charge to another. Suddenly a thought struck him. A mid the unwonted clatter, jabber and din about his ears, he reflected that he should turn all the extra noise and con fusion the visit had occasioned, to some account. The " item" he had so long sought to conjure up was at length found, and he immediately finished the bill with— . To making a d--d fuss generally, $2.0." The paymaster glanced at the amount —paid the bill, and was off instanter.— Whether Jerome Bonaparte ever found out that he had paid $2O for making a d—d fuss generally about a Yankee tavern-keeper's house, is more than we can say, but if ever Basil Hall, Fiddler, or Mrs. Trollope should get hold of this story, they may rely upon its authenti city. A PREDICAMENT How queerly does a lady feel, A walking in the street, NN hen she's aware her stocking heel, Makes visible her feet. She lifts her foot up awkwardly, And puts it down again ; And tries to pass that none may see, But labor's all in vain. CHARACTERISTIC. Noisy geese destroy all peace, When cackling loud and often ; And so girls do, when more than two About their beaux are talking. Irj- "Look on me and weep," as the onion said to the cook.

MI6 -it' Diseases of the Luny), AV. MORE EVIDENCE OF ITS SURPASS ING HEALTH RESTORATIVE VIR TUES! SPRINGFIELD, Ky., May 14, 1845. Messrs. Sanford ,Sr Park—Gents :—I take this opportunity of informing you of a most remarkable cure performed upon me by the use of Dr. Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry. In the year of 1840, I was taken with an inflammation of the bowels, which I labored under for six weeks, when I gra dually recovered. In the fall of 1841, I was attacked with a severe cold, which seated on my lungs; and for the space' of three years I was confined to my bed. I tried all kinds of medicines, and every variety of medical aid, without benefit ; and thus I wearied along until the win ter of 1844, when I heard of "Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry." My friends persuaded me to give it a trial, though I had given up all hopes of recovery, and had prepared myself for the change of another world. Through their solicitations I was induced to make use of the genuine NI istar's Balsam of Wild Cherry. The effect was truly as tonishing. After five years' offliction, pain and suffering, and after having spent four or five hundred dollars to no purpose, and the best and most respect able physicians had proved unavailing, I was soon restored to entire health by the blessing of God and the use of Dr. Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry. I am now enjoying good health, and such is my altered appearance that 1 am no longer known when I meet my old acquaintances. I have gained rapidly in weight, and my flesh is firm and solid. I can now eat as much as any person, and my food seems to agree with me. I have eaten more during the last six months than 1 had eaten in five years before. Considering my cure almost a mira cle, I deem it necessary for the good of the afflicted, and a duty I owe to the proprietors and my fellow men (who should know where relief may be hat') to make the statement public. May the blessings of God rest upon the proprietors of so valuable a medi cine as Wistar's Balsam of Wild Che ry. Yours respectfully, WM. D. BAKER. All orders for Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry should be addressed io Sanford & Park, corner of Fourth and Walnut streets, Cincinnati, Ohio. Price $1 per bottle.
