    L. Martin and the Lawyer.
We heard an anecdote of this distin
guished lawyer a few days ago, which
we remember to have met with in print,
but which is so good that it will do to
tell again.
Martin was on one occasion riding to
Annapolis, in a stage coach, in which
was a solitary companion, a young law
yer just commencing the practice of
law. After some familiar conversation
the young lawyer said:
" - Sir, you have been remarkably suc
cessful in your profession—few men
have gained so mary canes—will you
be good enough to communicate to me,
n.beginner,. the secret of your won
derous successl"
"I'll do it, young man on one condi
tion, and that is that you defray my ex
penses during my stay of a few day at
" Willingly," replied the young man,
hoping thereby to profit greatly by the
" The secret of my success," said.
Martin, "may be discovered in this ad
vice which 1 now give you nawrzly :
Deny everything and insist upon proof."
On reaching Annapolis, Luther Mar
tin was not very self-denying in the en
joyment presented by a fine hotel ; the
aubttantials and general refreshments
were despatched in a manner quite grat
ifying to the host. The time for return
at length came. The young man and
Martin stood together at the bar, and .
demanded their respective bills.
Martin's was enormous, but on glan
cing at it, he quietly handed it to the
piung lawyer, who running his eye over
i. azily, returned it with the utmost
.• Don't you intend to pay it 1"
`• Pay- what 1" said the young lawyer.
Why, pay this bill. Did you not
pruniise on the route downward, that
you would defray my expenses at the
" My dear sir," said the young gen
tleman, "1 deny everything, and insist
upon proof."
..Nla;tin at once saw that he was caught
and eyeing his young friend a moment
or two, he said, pleasantly, "You don't
need any counsel from me, young man;
you don't need any counsel from rue."
Counsel to the Young.
Resolve to form your life upon some
certain principles, and regulate your ,
principles by fixed rules. Man was
made to be governed by reason, and not
by mere accident or caprice. It is im
portant therefore that you begin early to
consider and inquire what is the proper
course, and form some plan for your fu-
ture lives. The want of such consid-
eration is manifest in the conduct of
multitudes. They are governed by the
impulse of the moment, reckless of the
consequences. They have fixed no steady
aim, and have no certain principles of
action. Living thus at random, it would
be a miracle if they went uniformly
right. In order to your pursuing the
right path, you must know what it is
and to acquire this knowledge you must
divest yourselves of thoughtless giddi
ness ; you must take time for serious re
flection. It will not always do to adopt
the recommendation of those who may
be about you ; for they may have a sin
ister regard to you; or may themselves
be misled by error or prejudice. Per
sons already involved in dissipation or
entangled in error, naturally desire to
keep themselves in countenance by the
number of followers whom they can se
duce into their path in vice. As rea
sonable creatures, therefore, judge for
yourselves what course is right• anu fit
ting that you should pursue. Exercise
your own reason independently and im
partially, and give not yourself up to be
governed by mere caprice and fashion,
or by the opinions of ethers.
ter Village Record says that a man liv
ing in north Coventry township, near
the Schuylkill river, was brought to the
jail at West Chester, last week, charged
with beating his wife so• unmercifully
that she died. It appears that the man
and wife were both addicted to intoxica
tion, and were furnished by some per
sons in the neighborhood, with means
of gratifying their propensity for drink.
On Sunday, the 6th inst., they were both
in a state of inebriety, and the husband
in a fit of passion, beat his wife until
she was insensible. In this condition
she was discovered by a neighbor. The
man displayed no signs of humanity or
contrition; but even after his arrest
treated his wife with brutal indignity.
He acknowledged that he had inflicted
the injury, said he was willing tobe pun
ished, and desired the neighbors to lynch
him on the spot. He has been commit
ted to await his trial at the July term.
The woman died on Monday.
ing in a field chanced to be stung by a
nettle, and came crying to. his father.—
He told him. that he had been hurt by
that nasty plant several times before;
that tie was always afraid of it; and that
now,. though he did but just touch it,
yet he was most severely stung. 'Child,'
said he, 'your touching it so gently and
timorously is the very reason of its hur
ting you. A nettle may be handled safe
ly, if you do it with courage and resolu
tion ; if you seize it boldly and hold it
fast, be assured it will never sting you;
and so it is with many things in the
world ; if we grapple boldly with them
we shall come off unhurt."
A Beautiful Allegory.
Mr. Crittenden was engaged in defen
ding a man who had been indicted for a
capital offence. After an elaborate and
powerful defence, ho closed his effort by
the following striking and beautiful
"When God, in His eternal counsel,
conceived the thought of man's creation
He called to him the three Ministers
who wait constantly upon His Throne—
Justice Truth and Mercy ; and thus ad
dressed them ; "Shall We make man 1"
Then said Justice, "Oh, God, make him
not ; for he will trample upon thy laws."
—Truth made answer also, "Oh, God !
make him not, for he will pollute thy
sanctuaries." But Mercy, dropping upon
her knees, and looking up through her
tears exclaimed, "Oh, God ! make him ;
L. will watch over him with my care,
through all the dark paths which he may
have to tread." Then God made man,
and said to him, "Oh, man ! thou art
the child of Mercy; go and deal with
thy broth.er2 "
The jury when he finished, was drown
ed in tears, and against evidence and
whnt must have been their own convic
tions, brought in a speedy verdict of not

to produca utter prostration. AII these afflictions
increased with such violence, that on the 4th of

that medical skill could suggest, but without ef

and my hopes of recovery lessening as my din
afire increased. lily cough became distressing);
my pains severe; and, extremely debilitated, I
lost all ambition in life, and gave up to a metal,

and informed me I had an alisess on the uI per

Notwithstanding all this chill, I grew worse. hit
with that tenacity with which we all cling to life,
I concluded to I, are nothing undone, and called
in a consulting physician, who fully concurred
with my own, mod pronounced my ease nn
tremely critical one. Ile thouelit I was in in,

Is seldom if ever cured." All this time I was en
during sufTerings that made life burdensome ; ex
periencing great pain in coughing; ex pectora

every 21 hours, and gradually sinking under the
weakning progress of my disease. A t this stage
of my i Iness, my friends in Ptistol suggested
the use of Schneck'e Pulmonic Syrup. but know•
ing the many expedients resorted to for the pur
pose of draining money from the effliett d, I ht.
Bated. My friends, however, insiating, 1 loan
prevailed upon to try its virtues. I commenced
taking the Syrup about the first of 111 arch, and
used several bottles before I had any confidence
in it. I then began to experience a charge for
the better, and continued it till I had convulsed
ten bottles, when I was eo'far relieved an to he
able to visit Dr. Schneck in Philadelphia. lie
examined me, and pronounced my right bung 10-

continued till I consumed 15 bottles, and found
tnyself onee more restored t health. 1 will fur
ther add,that the consulting physician, erring the
action of the medicine, fully approved its nee.
To give the reader some idea of the seventy
of my case, and the rapid cure affected by tl,o
Syrup, I will elate that my usual weight in
health was 177 pounds, which war finally re
duced by my eufierings to but 121 pounds. Yet,
on the first oT this month, (September,) I weigh
ed 174 pounds, thus gaining in a few months 53
pounds, and within three pounds of my heaviest
weight. It is not in ivy poser to convey, in the

passed; but to those who will take the trouble to
ca ll an one, a t Bristol, opposite Pi att'a hotel, 1
shall take pleasure in detailing ivory particular.
In conclusion, I deem it my duty to urge upon
every person who may have the premonitory
symptoms of this fetal disease, not to delay one
hour, but to call upon Dr Schneck immediately -
j Hia skill in the treatment of this complaint, and
prompt detection of dbeased parts of the lungs
by means of his Stetheacope, added to my own
