Dress and the Mind.
Oh, be not vain of gorgeous dress,
Place not in gems thy happiness,
For these will pace away;

These will adorn thy blooming youth,
And cheer thy life's decay.
"Train up a child in the way he
should go," says the proverb, and well
would it be for children generally, if
they were trained in the way they should
go. But alas for the weakness of hu
man nature! parents too often train up
their offspring in a way that brings
much trouble and inconvenience upon
themselves, as well as upon those who
are subject to their management. To
gratify her own pride, and love of dis
play, the fond mother heaps finery upon
little miss, before she is of an age to care
for ornaments on her own account, and
while the doll and baby house would oc
cupy all her little thoughts, if left to
herself, she is taught to consider a new
and fashionable dress as the great thing
to be desired; and do but see how the
little thing tosses her tiny head, decora
ted with flowers or feather—how the
rich frock is displayed, and the lullipu-.
tian foot held out, that strangers may
observe the delicate slipper—how the
culs, which mama or nurse has spent
hours in torturing to their present form,
are shaking from side to side—how
the smile of gratified vanity dimples
the rosy mouth when she hears the
whiseped praises that are lavished upon
her, on account, most likely, of her cost
ly dress. Children, if gond humored,
are always engaging. "Youth, in it
self, is beauty." Why then destroy the
simplicity of the infant mind,. by the per

that all the ornaments of dross are

est in the United States, and which, in the greater
part, is made for, and imported by ourselves.
Any person having used Queeneware or China
for a number of years, will notice the general dote
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
token 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 /ewer than on any Other
business street, and nothing else could possibly
make a difference. But no house can succeed
hero that does not keep the best qualities of goods,
and this does not suit all—hence the prejudice.

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
purity instantly. Its own heat and vi,
tality hre,suffieient, without one particle
of medicine, except to open the pores ..
upon the surface. Thus we see the folly
bf taking so much internal remedies.—
All prttetitiehers; however, direct their
efforts to restore the insensible perspira
tion: The Thompsoniah; for instance;
steams; the Hydropathist shrouds
Wet blankets; the Homoeopathist del
out itifintissituals; the AilopaOist blee
and doses us with mercury; and tiii!
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,"

hod that a salve can hate any effect
upon the lungs, seated as they bre With
in the system: But if placed upon the
chest, it penetrates direetlY to the lungs,
setiarates the pbisbhous particles that
are consuming thetn, and expels them
frottt the system. I need not say that
it is eurifig persons of Consumption con

foolishness. I care not what is said, so
long as I can cure several thousand per

OLD SORES.—That some sores are nn
outlet to the impurities of the system,
is because they cannot pass off 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-*
