SUNDAY READING [PUBLISLIED Br BEQUEST:] SANCTIFICATION. Ye who know your sins forgiven, And are happy in the Lord, Have you read that gracious promise, Which is left upon record? I will sprinkle you with water, I will cleanse you from all sin, Sanctily and make you holy, I will dwell and reign within.• Tho' you have much pence and comfort, Greater things you yet may find; Freedom from unholy tempers, Freedom from the carnal mind. fio procure your perfect freedom, Jest* mined, groan'd and dial; On the cross, the healing fountain, Gushed from his waundad side. If you've not obtained this treasury, kearch and you. shall surely find; All the christian's marks and graces, Planted, growing in the mind ; Perfect thith and perfect patience, Perfect loveliness, and then Perfect hope and perfCet meekness, Perfect love for God and man. But lie sure to gain the witness Which abides both day and night; This your God has plainly promised; This is like a stream of While you keep the blessed witness, All is clear and calm within; God himself assures you by it, That your heart is cleansed from sin. Witnesses might be produced, Of this womPmus work of love ; Patd and James, and John and Peter, Long before they went above. linndreds, thousands, tens of thousands, Have, and do, and will appear; Let me ask the solemn question, Has the Lord a witness here? Be no holy, and as happy, And as useful here below, As it is your Father's pleasure— Jesus, only Jesus know. Spread, 0 spread the holy fire! Tell, 0 tell what Coil has thine, Till the nations have conformed To the imago of his Son. Wake up, brothers ! wake up, sisters ! Seek, 0 seek this holy state; None but holy ones can enter Thro' the pure celestial gitte. Can you bear the thought of losing All the joys that tu•e above? No my brothers, iso my sister., God will perfect you in love.: Death shall not destroy toy comfort, Christ shall guide use thro' the gloom, Down he'll send a heavenly convoy To convey my spirit home. Jordan's stream's shall ne'er o'erflow me, While my Saviour's by my side; Canaan, Canaan lies before me, Rise and cross the swelling flood. Sec the happy spirits waiting, On the banks beyond the stream, Sweet responses still repeating, Jesus, Jesus, is their theme. Bark, they whisper ! hark, they call me ! Sister spirit come away ! Lu I come, earth can't contain me, lluil yo realms of endless day ! Never get Angry. It does no good. Some sins have a seeming compensation or apology, apresent gratification of some sort; but anger has none. A manfrels no better for it. It is really a torment, and when the storm of pnssioa has cleared away, it leaves one to see that ho has been a fool; and he has made a fool of himself in the oyes of others too. An angry man adds nothing to the welfare of society. Ile may do some good, but more hurt. heated passion makes him. a firebrand and it is a wonder if he does not kiudlo flames of discord on every hand. Without much sensibility, and often void of reason, he speaketh liko the piercing of a sword, and his tongue is an arrow shot out. lie is a had clement in any community, and Isis removal would furnish occasion for a day of thanksgiving. Since then anger is useless, needless, disgraceful, with out the least apology, and found only "in the bo som of fools," why should it be indulged in at all T. The Doom of our World. The North British Review says :—"What this doom is to be we dare not conjecture, but we see in the heavens themselves some traces of the des tructive elements and indications of their powers —the descent of meteoric stones upon our globe,. the wheeling comets wielding their loose material at the solar surface—the volcanic eruption of our own astelite—the appearance of others—aro all foreshadows of that impending convulsion to which the system of the world is doomed. Thus placed upon a planet which is to be band, and wider heavens which aro to melt away—thus treading as it were, on the cemetries, and dwelling on mauso leums of former worlds, let us learn the lesson of humanity and wisdom, if we have not alreiuly been taught in the school of revelation." The Wife. It is astonishing to see how well a man may live on a small income, who has a handy and indus trious wife. Some men live and make a far better appearance on six or eight dollars a week, than others do on fifteen or eighteen dollars. The man does his part well; but the wife is good for noth ing. She will even upbraid her husband for not living in as good style as her neighbor—whilo the fault is entirely her own. His neighbor has a noat, capable, and industrious wife, and that makes the difference. Ilia wilt, on the other hand, is a whirlpool into which a great many silver cups might be thrown, and the appearance of the water would remain unchanged. No Nicholas the diver is there to restore the wasted treasure. It is only an insult for such a woman to talk to her husband about her love and her devotion. Gems of Thought. Esteem is the mother of love, but the daughter is often older than the mother. Graves aro but the print of the footsteps of eter nal life. Peace is tho evening star of the soul, as virtues is its sun, and the two are never apart. The gifts that circumstances make in our char acter, we are apt to regard as its native fruit. gir People arc toe prune to condemn in others what they practise themselves without scruple.— Plutarch tolls of a wolf; who, peeping into a but where a company of shepards were regaling them selves with a joint of mutton, exclaimed "what a clamor would they have raised, if they lead caught me at such a banquet 1" BOOK AND STATIONARY DEPOT.

MANY and many a wife endures years of bodily suffering and of mental anguish, prostrate and help- less, embittering her life, that of her husband, and hazarding the future welfare of her children, arising from causes which, if known, would have spared the suffering, the anguish to the wife, and to the bus. band embarrassments and pecuniary difficulties hav ing their origin in the mind being weighed down and harassed in conacquenee of the sickness of the cora panion of his bosom.

Read ! and be con vinced that Schneck's Pulmonary Syrup is the only certain cure for Consumption. Bristol, Bucks couuty,Pa. Sept. 21,1849. Dn. J. li. SCIINECK, —DearSir,—l am induced from a sense of justice towards you, as well as duty to the public, to make known one of the most hopeless and extraordinary cores, in nip stun person, that you have ever had the pleasure to record. Indeed, I regret my inability to por tray, in truthful colors, my consuming disease, and the remarkable chance which Schrieck's Pulmonary Syrup effected in so short a time. I was taken some time previous to December 1848, with a heavy cold, producing incessant coughing, accompanied with acute pain in the right side, pains in the back, under the right shoulder, having heavy night sweate,high fevers &c., which made me so nervous and restless as to produce utter prostration. AII theseafflictione 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 suggest, but without ef fect. I found myself gradually growing worse, and my hopes of recovery lessening as my die ease increased. My cough became distressing ; my pains severe; end, extremely debilitated, I loot all ambition in life, and gave up to a melan choly depression. My physician examined me, and informed me I had an abeess on the upper part of my liver and lower part of one of my lungs. Notwithstanding all this kill, I grew worse, but with that tenacity with which we all cling to life, I concluded to Icave nothing undone, and called in a consulting physician, who fully concurred with my own, and pronounced my case an ex tremely critical one. He thought I was in im minent danger--saying my disease "was one the is seldom if ever cured. , ' All this time I was en during sufferings that made life burdensome ; ex periencing great pain in coughing ; expecte,ra Ling from a pint to a quart of nauceous motter every 24 hours, and gradually sinking under the weakning progress of my disease. At this stage of my lances, my friends in Bristol suggested the use of Schneck's ruin - ionic Syrup, but know ing the many expedients resorted to for the pur pose of draining money from the afflicted, I hes itated. My friends, however, insisting, I was prevailed upon to try its virtues. 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 a change for the better, and continued it till I had consumed ten bottles, when I was so far relieved as to be able to visit Dr. Schneck in Philadelphia. He examined me, and pronounced my right lung af fected, but in a healing condition. He recom mended the further use of the Syrup, which I continued till I consumed 15 bottle., and found myself once more restored to health. I will fur then add, that the consulting physician, seeinglhe action of the medicine, fully approved its use To give the reader some idea of the severity of my case, and the rapid cure affected by the Syrup, I will state that my usual weight in health was 177 pounds, which was finally re duced by my sufieringe to but 121 pounds. Yet, on the first of 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 my power to convey, in the ehort epace of this certificate, the convincing proofs of my remarkable cure, or the particulars of the agonizing afflictions through which I have passed ; but to those who will take the trouble to call on me, at Bristol, opposite Pratt's hotel, I shall take pleasure in detailing every particular. In conclusion, I deem it my duty to urge upon every person who may have the premonitary symptoms of this fatal disease, not to delay one , hour, but to call upon Dr Schneck immediately- His skill in the treatment of this complaint, and prompt detection of diseased parts of the lungs by means of his Stethoscope, added to my own miraculous curd, fully satiafieerne, that bed I car eer submitted myself to his care, I should have !Heaped much suffering ; but restrained by doubts and suspicion,which make us all naturally ekep. tical in regard to the virtues of a medicine when first introduced, I resisted the importunities of my friends till almost too late ; and yielded only as a last resort, resolved to " kill or cure." To those afflicted as I have been, again let me soy, hesitate no longer, my own case is presented to you as convincing evidence, that when all else fails your last hope is in Dr, Schneck's Pulmonic Syrup. I have also for the satisfaction of those who may be strangers to me, appended to this cell tificate the names of gentlemen well known in the walks of public and private life, mid whoee standing in society admits of no cavil or doubt in • regard to their testimony. CHARLES G. JOHNSON. We the undersigned, residents of Bristol and vicinity, are well acquainted with Mr. Johnson, and know him to have been afflicted as ho states above. We also know that ho used Schneck's Pulmonic Syrup, and hive every reason to be lieve, that to this medicine he owes his preserva tion from a premature grave.

MAURIOEAU--My Dear Sir ' The Married Woman's Private Medical Companion,' for which I enclosed one dollar to your address, came safely to hand. I would not have troubled you with these few lines, but that I am impelled by a sense of gratitude, fur myself and wife, to give utterance to our sincere and heartfelt emotions. "My wife has been perceptibly sinking for some three yearn or more, in consequence of her great an guish and suffering some months before and during confinement; every successive ono more and more debilitated and prostrated her, putting her life in im minent danger, and which was, on the last occasion, despaired of I supposed that this state of things was Inevitable, and resigned myself to meet the worst. At this time (now about two months) I beard your book highly spoken of, as containing some matters reaching my case. On its receipt and perusal, I can not express to yea the relief it afforded my distressed mind. and the joy its pages Imparted to my wife, on learning that the great discovery of M. M. Demo- Meaux provided a remedy. It opened a prospect to me which I little conceived was possible. No pecu niary consideration can ever repay the obligations I am under to you for having been the means of im parting to us the matters contained in' The Married. Woman's Private Medical Companion.' But for this, ere another year would have passed over my head, in all human probability my wife would have . been in her grave, and my children left motherless." Extract from a Letter. Competence and Health. "LANCASTER, PA., Oct. 24, 1847. MY DEAR Btu: I know you will have the kind nem to bear with ma in encroaching upon year time while I acknowledge (in behalf of myself and wife► the obligations we feel ourselvea under to you in has. log made known certain matters, contained in your molt invaluable ' Married Woman's Private Medical' Companion.' It has been worth its weight in gold to me. If I express myself rather warmly, you wilt see that I can nut do iso too warmly, when I inform you of the extent to which I have, through it, been benefited. I will state my situation when I obtained your book through the merest cariosity I look upon ft as one of the molt fortunate events of my life. I had been married some ten years, and woe the father of seven children. I was long et-niggling unceasingly to the end that I might gain a moderate competency, but the melte of my utmost exertion. at the end left me about where I was at the beginning of each year; and that only, with the most stinted economy, suffi cing with barely the necessaries of life. Finally, this constant effort was beginning to have its effect upon my health I felt less capable to endure its comma ante, while I felt the net:cattily of perseverance. " This constant, unceasing struggle on toy part was imperative, in consequence of the prostrated condi tion of my wife (with occasional intermission) for ex years, much of the time confined to her bed, and of course incapable of taking the charge and manage ment of household affairs. Her condition arose from causes of which I was ignorant. Oh! what would I have given had I the six years to live ever again ! What would any wife have given to have been Roved the long days and still longer nights prostrate on • bed of aleknese I—all of which would have been avoided, had I then seen a copy of ' THE MARRIED WOMAN'S PRIVATE MEDICAL COMPANION."'
