    A Romance in Real the.
In New York, in 1796, my store was
in Maiden Lane, within three doors of
the store of John Mowatt, an extensive
dealer in shoes. His foremen was John
Pelsue, who sat behind the counter stitch.
ing shoes and waiting on customers as
they stepped in. One day a corpse was
found in the dock, at the foot of the street.
The coroner took the jury-men from the
neighborhood, and among them John
Mowatt and his foreman, John Pelsue.
The corps lay on the table in the centre
of the room. Some of the jurymen re
marked that as soon as John Pelsue look.
ed on the corpse, he started, turned pale,
and looked as if going to faint. He ral
lied, however, but his subsequent move
ments occasioned some curious remarks.
The jury having rendered a verdict of
death by drowning, were discharged.
Mowatt turned round to look for his
foreman, but behold he was not there.
We stepped out of doors and saw. him
high up the street, on a half run, when
ho quickly turned a corner. All sorts
of inquiries were made, but nothing
could be heard of him. This with his
turning pale Rt the first view of the
corpse, occasioned some strange sur.
raises among the jurors for many days
afterwards, John Mowatt was a bachelor
of thirty-five, and Pelsue had seen about
thirty summers.
On a certain day, about one month
thereafter, a lady in deep mourning step
ped into Alowttes store and asked for
a pair of shoes. While John was trying
1..,w the shoe fitted, the lady enquired,
'• You had a man in your store, John Pol
s .c by name—what has become of him!"
"Yes," says Mowatt, "but what has be
, .;ne of him I would give a good deal
to learn." He then related the story as
utiuva stated. "Strange," replied the
lady: "And you have not seen him
since !"
"No," replied Mowatt, "I. have not
seen him since." "Yes you have seen
him," replied the lady, "I certainly,"
said Mowatt, would not contradict a
lady of your appearance; but I have not
seen him to my knowledge." "Well,
then," says she, "I am John Pelsue; and
that subject on whom we held the jury,
was the corpse of my husband. My
family name is Randall. I was born in
Philadelphia. I married, (against the
wishes of my parents,) John Conner, a
sober, industrious mart, by trade a shoe-
maker. We lived happily for two years
He took to drinking, neglected his busi.
ness, and onee strnck me, while in
liquor. We had no family, so I resolved,
while we were stitching shoes together,
to learn his trade and leave him. I soon
made a paegable shoe, when 1 assumed
the male attire, came to New York, and
you gave me work as journeyman. The
rest you know."
. .
John told the present narrator, some
days after, that on hearing this he was
dumb founded.
"Well, madam," says- John, "1 liked
you as journeyman, aad when , my fore
man, 1 was pleased. Suppose we go in
to partnership for !del"
In forty-eight hours thereafter they
were married. She was a fine looking
woman, and might have passed for twen
ty five.
This is perhaps the first instance on
record, of a woman's sitting as Coron
er's juryman on the corpse of her hus
baud. The above is a simple tale of
truth. I was witness to.all the facts.
fa.. "Now, Girls," said our friend,
Mrs. Biglow, to her daughters, the oth.
er day, "you must get husbands as soon
as possible, or they'll all be murdered."
"Why so, ma 1" inquired one.
"Why, I see by the paper that we've
got a'most 15,000 post offices, and near
ly all of them despatches a mail every
day--the Lord have mercy on us poor
widows and orphans!" and the old lady
stepped briskly to the looking glass to
put on her new cap.
ABSENCE OF LVIIND.--A gentleman while
shooting in Tennessee, put the wadding
in his clothes, and rammed himself down
in the rifle instead. Having,. however,.
left his cap on, he was instantly shot to
the top of a pine tree, into the society of
a raccoon, who explained to him his

Town Criers.
In Boston, they have a method of ad
vertising auction sales and of giving no
tice to the public of other things which
it is particularly desired should be gen
erally known, which we believe is pecu
liar to that place—and that is by what
they call town criers, who go about the
streets armed with a bell, which they
ring at the corners of the streets to at
tract notice—and then with a stentorian
pair of lunge, set forth what ever matter
they have in hand—whether it be goods
at auction, a chad lost or a public meet
ing in the cradle of liberty.
Some of the criers, time out of mind,
have been great wags ; and indeed are
so fond of their calling, (we mean no
fun) that they would hardly make the
same excuse that a crier in an English
court did namely, he could not cry, be
cause his wife was thud.
One of the crying Boston Wags, as
we remember reading in an old maga
zine, used to attract that the women
would often run to the doors, or pop their
heads out of their windows to hear hint,
there was one fami'y in particular,
consist ing of six or seven daughters of
an old gentleman by the name of Otis,
who were certain to run out, as often as
he rang his bell. Stopping one day, in
front of the house, he rang- his bell as
usual, and when all the Otis gals had
come to the door, and a great crowd was
collected in. the street to hear what he
had to• say, he proclaimed aloud ;
46 This is to give notice
That if Jonothan Otis
Don't keep his gals in,
I'll never cry here again !"
The gals walked into the house, and
the crier walked on as gravely as usu
al. But from that day he lost the com
pany of the Otis "gals," who thought
he had carried the joke a little too far,
considering the extraordinary patronage
they had so long bestowed on his cry-

tiept. 21,1849.
Dn. J. H. Scitxxcit, -DearSir,—l am induced'
ftoin a aeons , of justice toward. you, as well se''
duty to the public, to make known one of the
most hopolees e nd extraordinary cure., in ms ,
own person, that you have ever - had the pleaeurs ,
to record. Indeed, I regret my inability to par. -
tray, tray, in truthful colors, my consuming diseaoe,
and the remarkable chance which Schncck 'e
Pulmonary Syrup effected in so abort a time.
I was token some time previous to December , '
1848, with a heavy cold, producing inceeaant
coughing, accompanied with acute pain in the
right side, pains in the hack, under the right'
shoulder, having heavy night meats, high fevers
&c., which made me so nervous and restless as
to product utter prostration. All these afflictions
increased with such violence, that on the 4th of
January last I sent for my family physician. He
attended me faithfully, and prescribed every thing
that medical skill could suggeet, but without ef
fect. I found myself gradually growing w3rse,
and my hopes of recovery leseening as my die
ease increased. My cough became distressing ;
my pains severe; and, extremely debilitated, I
lost all ambition in life, and gave up to a melan
choly deg; ession. My physician examined me.
and informed me I had an abscise on the upper
part of my liver and lower part of one of my lunge..
Notwithstanding all this grew woree, but
with that tenacity with which we all cling to life,
I concluded to trove nothing undone, and called
in a consulting physician, who fully concurred
with my own, cud pronounced my case en ex
tremely critical one. lie thought I was in in:.
minent danger—saying my disease "was one the
to seldom if ever cured." All this time I was en
during sufferings that made life burdensome ; ex
periencing great pain in coughing; ex peelers
flog from a pint to a quart of neuceous matter
every 21 hours, and gradually eink hug under the
weakning progrese of my dowse. At this atrge
of my i Mess, my friend. in Pi isle! suggested
the use of Schneck's Pulmonte Syrup, but know
ing the many expedients resorted to for the pur
pose of draining money front the afllicted, l het-
Rated. My friends, however, insisting, I wee
prevailed upon to try its virtue.. I commenced
taking the Syrup about the first of March, and
used several bottles before I had any confidence
in it. I then began to experience n change for
the better, and continued it till I had consumed
ten bottles, when IW. oo far relieved as to be
able to visit Dr. Selineck in Philadelphia. He
examined me, and pronounced my right !ling ef
fected, but in a healing con !Rion. He remit- •
mended the further use of the Syrup, which I
continued till I consumed 15 bottler, end found
myself once more restored to heel''. I will fur
ther add, that the consulting physician, erring the
action of the medicine, fully approved its use.
To give the reader some idea of the oevesity
of my case, and the rapid cure affected by 1110
Syrup, I will state that toy usual weight in
health was 177 pounds, which was finally re-.
