The Westmoreland Intelligencer sayr;:
Our columns are, this week, clothed in
mourning, as a token of respect for the
two gallant officers whose names head
this article, and who fell in the late
battles before the walls of Mexico, in
defence of their country's honor. We
sympathise deeply with their bereaved
parents and relatives.
There is consolation, however, in the
reflection that, they fell at their posts in
the discharge of a high and sacred trust;
nobly and heroically sustainig the hon
or and flag of the Republic; and whilst
their many amiable qualities, and valor
ous bearing on the battle-field, will re.
main long green in the memories of sur
viving comrades and friends, may their
ashes, though inured in a far distant
land, repose in peace.
TO KEEP APPLES--.We find the follow
ing valuable directions in an old paper:
"Put them in casks or bins, in layers,
well covered with city sand, each layer
being covered. This preserves them
from the air; their moisture being ab
sorbed by the sand; at the same time, it
preserves the flavor of the apples and
prevents their wilting. Pippins have
been kept in this matrnor sound and
fresh, till mid-summer, and how much
longer they would have kept is not
known. Any kind, of sand w!ll answer,
but it must be perfectly dry."
WIS PA R'S BALSAM OF WILD
CHERRY.—In endeavoring to impress upon the
minds of cur citizens the superior efficacy of this
involuab!e remedy for Consumption and Pulmo
nary Diseases in general, we wish to assure our
readers that we are actuated solely by a desire to'
benefit the afflicted. Our faith in the remedy is
founded upon the universal success attending its
dee, and we fully believe that the most faithless
and incredulous, after witnessing its surprising
virtues, will no torrger doubt that Consumption
may and can be cured."
Such indeed is the fact, and so astonishing have
been the cures effected by the Balsam, that it may
in justice tie considered the greatest triumph in the
"healing art" that has yet been achieved. And we
are well satisfied, from our experience, that there
aro thousands now lingering upon the brink of the
grave under a disease of the lungs, in some form',
who may be rescued from an early death, and re
stored to perfect fresith by the timely use of this

are a safe, easy and certain cure for cold cad

dangerous complaints. A single 25 cent box of

to make a perfect cure of the moat obstinate cold—
at the same time the digestion is improved, and
the blood so completely purified, that new life and
