THE NIMBLE SHILLING
A SKETCH OF EARLY HISTORY.
It is a matter of congratulation that
with the progress of refinement in the
west, the common use of alcoholic drinks
as a beverage is fast getting out of
fashion—and many of our oldest and
most respected citizens who, in the pri
mitive days were engaged in the traffic,
have seen its evils, and set their faces
against it. We know that some of the
captious old topers who still adhere to
the ardent, sneeringly say that their
neighboos did not quit until they made
their fortunes—but what of that? it is
evident that they are sincere in their
opposition to spiritous liquors when they
themselves cease the use, as well as the
sale of the article. In gathering mate
rial for a future history of the west, we
are often struck with the fact, of how
steadily that evil agent whiskey, has ad
vanced with civilization ; how many
tragedies marked its baneful march, how
many humorous anecdotes it has given
birth to. Our purpose at present is to
chronicle one of the latter ; but as the
family of the Illinois whiskey dealer has
discarded the article, and have, in the
course of time and progress, risen to
wealth and dignity, we will of course
During the last war, when the " Ran
gers" were on duty through western
Illinois, whiskey was a deplorable scarce
article, and the money to purchase it,
when found, was equally hard to obtain.
Among the old rangers the "corn juice"
was considered as necessary to subsis
tence as " corn dodgers ;" but having
received no pay for a long period, their
small stock of funds had entirely run
out. In the mean time the old dealer
had succeeded in raising two barrels of
the comfortable liquid, and erected a
small shanty near the camp where his
shingle in chalked capitals, declared that.
: “waisicEr lISARRIV ATSIX SENSE A STIC." :
Major Murdock, one of the old vete
rans, had for two days, in a wofully
parched state been searching his " kiv
erin" for a stray bit that he knew was
somewhere about him, but all his efforts
to chase it up appeared unavailing—
there were so many patches on his hun
ting shirt that it was impossible to find
the one which he had made a pocket to
contain the precious coin, and at last he
had given it up. He tried to get trusted
for two drinks until he could find it, but
the owner of the shanty knew better
than to trust any of that crowd.
"'fry again, Major," said a dry cro
ny, who knew the circumstances, "try
again; never give up a good cause—a
shillin' in silver now is worth gold an
The Major did try again, and * last
down in the seam at the tail, the Major
discovered the little joker, and perhaps
he hailed the discovery with a yell of
" Now Bill," says he, " we'll give
that old feller's barrel a rip for two in
wigoraters, and no dispute."
They accordingly adjourned to the
shanty and called for the " medicine."
The owner looked at the Major doubt
fully, but when he displayed the bit,
hesitation vanished—he instantly drew
the " sucks," handed them over and took
the change. The first taste brightened
the Major as keen as an Indian. He
observed while drinking that the dealer
placed the money on a little shelf behind
him, and just above his head; it was
within reaching distance, too, from his
stand beside the temporary counter;
upon this discovery he at once acted.
" Well, rally," says he "that stuff is
suthon like ; thar's body to it that tiches
a feller's vitality at the extreme pints."
" Bill," added he, " I could fight Ingins
at half wages of they'd ony feed me from
sech cow's milk as is in that barrel. I
do think we'll go anuther."
Bill signified assent, but looked at the
Major with some surprise and inquiry
in his countenance, as to where he would
find another bit, but old Ranger soon
opened his eyes wider. The dealer had
no sooner stooped to draw from the bar
rel than the Major picked the shilling
off the shelf and paid it over again for
"I know'd you hed money, Major,"
said the dealer, " of you could only con
sent to shell it out ; but you're getting
consarned close-fisted in you old days."
The Major laughed at the remark as
" Well, you're a cunnin' sarpint, Jo,
and bound to make sunthin' out of us
fellars. 1 declare that licker is so tre
mengus that it's sot me cravin' in my
" Don't give it up yit, Major, chimed
in the dealer, " thar's more whar that
come from of the same brewen." I know
you hey been sufferin for a taste these
few days past, cause you did'nt like to
open, and I hated precious bad to re
fuse you; but whisky costs a powerful
sight a'ore it gets here."
" Well, we will jest take another atom
of a drink, and then lumber," says the
willing Ranger. The shilling was pick
ed off the shelf, and went through the
same process again with equal satisfac
tion. After swallowing another round,
the Ranger smacked his lips, made a
move towards the door, and turned back
" I tho't you'd think better of it, Ma
," said the dealer ; " seech stuff as
this don't stay long in these diggings.
You'll go another, I guess " I"
" Well, jest one more , says the Ma
jor, " I declare 1 think it war some Beech
licker that tempted Adam, instead of an
apple, as the Scriptur' says. Its all
sufficiently enticin' to tempt a coon out
of a holler log of the dogs war arter
In reaching for the shilling this time
the Major was so eager, and a little ex
cited withal, that he dropped it down
right before the owner of the shanty.
" Hello !" says he ; " that thar shelf
must be gittin' crowded when they're
droppin off—or is this yours, Major 1"
" It's yours now," said the Ranger,
" for these last drinks ; and Jo yur is
wishin' you may git bit so offen."
" Thanky, Major, thanky," said Jo ;
"I'll drink that myself "—and he did.
The Major and Bill retired with the
honors, and as they were passing thro'
the door, Jo was feeling on the shelf for
his shillings, but the hunting-shirt coin
was all that the search produced.
"Bit, by thunder !" exclaimed he, and
coining to the door, he shook his fist
after the old Ranger, exclaiming, "I
might hey know'd a pizen old Ingen kil
ler like you had no money; and consarn
you, you shunt hey anuther sue out of
this barrel of your old melt and gizzard
was freezin inside of you."
THE subscriber respectfully begs leave
to announce to his friends and the
public generally, that he has leased that well
known PUBLIC HOUSE, in the borough of
Huntingdon, formerly occupied by John M'Con
nell, and more recently by Adam H. Hall decd.,
where he is now ready to accommodate all who
may favor him with their custom.
Having thoroughly renovated this house, with
the intention of sparing no efforts in contributing
to the comfort of hie easterners, he flatters himself
that he will be able to render satisfaction to all
who may be pleased to stop with him. The
house is pleasantly located its the most prominent
part of the town.
Will always be supplied with the best the market
can afford. The greatest care will be taken in re
gard to the cleanliness and comfort of his sleeping
hcommodious, and will always be attended by a
careful and obliging outlet, and every arrangement
made to make his house a desirable stopping place
for the traveller.
Will be taken on reasonable terms. His prices
will be very moderate. JOHN MARKS.

HE subscribers, successors TYN

Merchants and Residents of Huntingdon end vici
nity, to their stock of
CHINA AND QUEENS WARE,
Which we have no hesitation in saying is the larg
est in the United States, and which, in the greater
part, is made for, and imported by ourselves.
Any person having used Queenaware or China
for a number of years, will notice the general dete
rioration in the quality—this is owing to the great
ly reduced prices. In some of the manufactories,
where a good name has been established, and pride
taken in their character, no such inferiority is ob
served—from such houses have we constantly en
deavored to make our stock, and we are determined
to sell our wares as low as any quality, whether
equal or inferior, can be sold in the U. S.
There is a prejudice against Chesnut Street,
raised from a false notion of higher prices. Our
rents on this street are lower than on any other
business street, and nothing else could possibly
make a difference. But no house can succeed
here that does not keep the best qualities of goods,
and this does not sultull—hence the prejudice.
We have every kind of Ware, from common
Painted Teas, Edged Plates, Mocha, Granite,
Printed, Flowing Blue, &c. &c. to the finest China
We are anxious to extend our business, and
take every proper means of doing so—but not ma•
king personal application to strangers here, we
have no other means of doing it, than by the aid of
our old friends, by advertising, and by the quality
and prices of our.Foods._

IS the great Evacuation for the impuri
ties of the body. Life cannot be sus
tained without it. It is thrown off - from the
blood and other juices of the body, and
disposes by this means of nearly all the
impurities within us. The language of
scripture, " in the blood is the life."—
If it ever becomes impure it may be
traced directly to the stoppage of the
" insensible perspiration." Thus we
see all that is necessary when the blood
is stagnant or infected, is to open the
pores and it relieves itself from all im
purity instantly. Its own heat and vi
tality are sufficient, without one particle
of medicine, except to open the pores
upon the surface. Thus we see the folly
of taking so much internal remedies.—
All practitioners, however, direct their
efforts to restore the insensible perspira
tion. The Thompsonian, for instance,
steams; the Hydropathist shrouds in
wet blankets; the Homoeopathist deals
out infintissimals ; the Ailopathist bleeds
and doses us with mercury, and the
blustering Quack gorges us with pills.
I have had physicians, learned in the
profession, I have had ministers of the
Gospel, Judges of the Bench, Aldermen
and Lawyers, gentlemen of the highest
erudition, and multitudes of the poor,
use it in every variety of way, and there
has been but one voice—one united,
universal voice—saying, " M'Allister
your Ointment is good."
CONSUMPTION.—It can hardly be cred
ited that a salve can have any effect
upon the lungs, seated as they arc with
in the system. But if placed upon the
chest, it penetrates directly to the lungs,
separates the poisonous particles that
are consuming them, and expels them
from the system. I need not say that
it is curing persons of Consumption con
tinually, although we are told that it is
foolishness. I care not what is said, so
long as I can cure several thousand per
HEADACHE.—The salve has cured per
sons of the Headache of 12 year's stand
ing, and who had it regularly every week,
so that vomiting often took place.
Veafuess and Ear ache are helped
with like success.
COLD FEET.—Consumption, Liver Com
plaint, pains in the Side or Chest, falling
off the hair, one or the other, always
accompanies cold feet. It is a sure sign
of disease in the system to have cold feet.
The Salve will cure every case in
Scrofula, Erysipelas, Salt Rheum, Liver
Complaint, Sore Throat, Bronchitis,
Broken or Sore Breast, Piles, Chest Dis
eases, such as Asthma, Oppression,
Pains, also Sore Lips, Chapped Hands,
Tumors, Cutaneous Eruptions, Nervous
Diseases, and of the Spine there is no
medicine known probably so good.
BUMS.—IL is the best thing in the
world for Burns, (Read the directions
around the box.)
Pimples on the face, Masculine Skin,
Gross Surface.—When there is grossness
or dull repulsive surface, it begins to
soften until the skin becomes as smooth
and delicate as a child's.
Wonms.—lf parents knew how fatal
most medicines were to children taken
inwardly, they would be slow to resort
to them. Especially 'mercurial lozen
ges,' called medicated lozenges,' ver
mifuges," pills,' &c. The truth is, no
one can tell, invariably, when worms
are present. Now let me say to parents,
that this salve will always tell if a child
has worms. It will drive every vestige
of them away. (Read the directions
around the box.) There is probably no
medicine on the face of the earth at
once so sure and so safe in the expul
sion of worms.
OLD SORES.—That some sores are an
outlet to the impurities of the system,
is because they cannot pass ofir through
the natural channels of the Insensible
Perspiration. If such sores are healed
up, the impurities must have some other
outlet, or it will endanger life. This
salve will always provide for such emer
RAUDIATISAL—AImost every case cu
red with this ointment.
FEVERS.—In all cases of fever, the
difficulty lies in the pores being locked
up so that the heat and perspiration can
not pass off. if the least moisture could
be started, the crisis has passed and the
danger is over. Tho all-healing oint
ment will ?n all cases of fevers almost
instantly unlock the skin and brings
forth the perspiration.
We have cured cases of Scald Head that
defied every thing known, as well as the
ability of fifteen or twenty doctors.—
One man told us he had spent $5OO on
his children without any benefit, when a
few boxes of the ointment cured them.
CORNS. — Occasional use of the oint
ment will always keep corns from grow
ing. People need never be troubled
with them if they will use it.
As a family medicine, no man can
measure its value.

CAUTION.—As the All-Healing Oint
ment has been greatly counterfeited, we
have given this caution to the public

the name of James M'Allister or James
M'Allister & Co. are written with a pen
upon every label.'
