Horse Racing in Italy.
The following eleserir tion of horse racing
in Italy is taken from McGill's Travels :
The horses run without riders, and to
urge thorn on, little bells with sharp points
in them are hung to their sides, which,
when the horse is employed in the race, act
like spurs. They have also pieces of foil
fastened to the hinder parts, which, as the
animal rushes through the air, make a loud
rustling noise, and frightens them forward.
I was mush amused with the horses at An
cons. A gun is fired when they first start,
that preparations may be made to receive
them at the other end. When they have
run half way, another gun is fired, and a
third when they arrive at the goal. To
ascertain without dispute which wins the
race, across the winning post, a thread is
stretched dipped in red lead: which the
victor breaking it, leaves a red mark on
his chest, and this red mark is decisive.—
To guard the course a great number of
Roman soldiers under arms were arrain
ged on each side of it, from one end to the
other. The morning after the first race I
was sitting with the Governor when a mess
age arrived from the General requesting
that the race might be deferred till anoth
er day, as he thought the weather too
cold to put the troops under arms. The
Governor replied to him: "That as the
weather was not too cold for the ladies, he
thought it was not too cold for the Roman
soldiers." I have seen on a day which
threatened rain, a guard of Romans turned
out, every one of whom had an umbrella
under his arm, the drummer and fifer
ABSENCE OF MlND.—Professor Reyn
olds, who once taught the B— Academy,
was the most absent minded man about ev
ery day affairs I ever saw. His mind was
all wrapped up with books, and he oared
no more about what the world was up to
than a pig cares about the Hottentots.
One morning his wife, who by the way,
differed vastly from her spouse in this re
spect, was reading aloud from the paper an
account of a horrible murder. A man had,
as the paper said, deliberately killed his
whole family, consisting of some dozen
members, with an axe. Mrs. Reynolds laid
down the paper with the exclamation—
.. What a wretch !"
"Yes,' said the husband, in a very quiet
tone,. looking up from bis book, 'he should
be talked to."
THE MODEL LADY puts her children out
to nurse and tends lap dogs; she lies in
bed till noon, wears paper soled shoes, and
pinches her waist; gives the piano fits, and
forgets to pay her milliner; cuts her poor
relations, and goes to church when she has
a new bonnet; turns a cold shoulder to her
husband and flirts with his "friend;" never
saw a thimble, dont know a darning needle
from a crow-bar; wonders where puddings
grow; eats ham and eggs in private, and
dines off a pigeon's leg in public; runs mad
after the latest fashion; dotes on Byron;
adores any fool who grins behind a mus
tache, and when asked the age of her
youngest child, replies, "Don't know, in
dud; ask Betty !"
THE LUNOB.—On examination, the lunge
will be found full of inumerablo little holes,
like a sponge. These holes are the cells
into which the air enters when we breathe.
So great is their number, they have been
calculated to amount to 170,000,000, for
ming a surface thirty times greater than
the human body. Every one of these cells
is provided with a net work of blood ves
sels, by which means every portion of the
blood is broght into immediate contact with
the air. When this great amount is taken
into consideration, we shall at once feel
bow necessary it is to supply pure air to the
lungs with every breath we breathe.
Old Thomas Fuller, who was a very
lively writer, but rather addicted to pun
ning, was occasionally repaid his pun, with
interest. He was exceedingly corpulent,
and as he was out riding with a friend na
med Sparrowhawk, he could not resist the
opportunity of cracking a joke upon him.
"What is the difference between an owl
and a Sparrow-hawk?" asked he. "An
owl is fuller in the head, fuller in the bo
dy, and fuller all over," replied his friend.
GLORIOUS TIME FOR THE LADIES.—In
the reign of Queen Margaret of Scotland,
the Parliament passed an act that any maid
en lady of high or low degree should have
the liberty to chose for a husband the man
on whom she set her fancy. If a man re
fused to marry her, he was heavily fined,
according to the value of his worldly pos
sessions. The only ground of exemption
was previous betrothal.
An entirely new feature was introduced
at an Agricultural fair held at Batavia, N.
Y. Nine fair equestriennes, attended by
their cavaliers, entered the ring, and com
peted for the honors awarded to the best
horsemanship. The first prize was a sil
If you wish to drive a out nail into seas
oned oak timber, and not have it break or
bend, just have a little oil near by, and dip
the end of the nail into it before driving,
and it will never fail to go.

CELEBRATED GERJIAN BITTERS, WM. GLASGOW,'

DR. C. M. JACKSON,
AT THE GERMAN MEDICINE STORE,
120 Arch Street. Philadelphia.
Their power over the above diseases is not ex
celled—if equalled—by any other preparation in
the United States, as the cures attest, in many
cases after skilful physicians had failed.
These Bitters are worthy the attention of inva
lids. Possessing great virtues in the rectification
of diseases of the Liver and lesser glands, exer
cising the must searching powers in weakness and
affections of the digestive organs, they are withal,
safe, certain and pleasant.
READ AND BE CONVINCED.
From the " Boston Bee."
The/editor said, Dec. 22nd
Dr. lioelland's Celebrated German Bitters for
the cure of Lives Complaint, Jaundice, Dyspepsia,
Chronic or Nervous Debility, is deservedly one of
the most popular medicines of the duy. These .
Bitters have been used by thousands, and a friend
at our elbow says ho had himself received an effec
tual and permanent cure of Liver Complaint from
the use of this remedy. We are convinced that,
in the use of these Bitters, the patient constantly
gains strength and vigor—a fact worthy of great
consideration. They are pleasant in cast and
smell, and can be used by persons with the most
delicate stomachs with safety, under any circum
stances. We are speaking from experience, and
to the afflicted we advise their use.

papers published, said Aug.
1 - 100FLAND'S IiZIMAN BITTERS, manu
factured by Dr. Jackson, are now recommended
by some of the most prominent members of the
faculty us au article of much efficacy in cases of
female weakness. As such is the case, we wc,ii;
advise all mothers to obtain a bottle, and thus save
themselves 1111101 sickness. Persons of debilitated
constitutions will find these Bitters advantageous
to their health, us we know from experience the
salutary ellectpicy have upon weak systems."
Mthtli E VIDENCE.
The Hon. C. D. Ilistmisk, Mayor of the city
of Camden, N. J., says
"BOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS: We have
seen many fluttering notices of this medicine, and
the source from which they came induced us to
make inquiry respecting its merits. k'runi inqui
ry we were persuaded to use it, and must say we
found it specific in its action upon diseases of the
liver and digestive organs, and tile powerful in
fluence it exerts upon nervous prostration is real
ly surprising. It calms and streughtens the nerves
bringing them into a state ofrepose, making sleep
"If this medicine was more generally used, we
are satisfied there would be less sickness, as tram
the stomach, liver, and nervous system the great
majority of real and imaginary diseases emanate.
Have them in a healthy condition, and you can
bid defiance to epidemics generally. This extra
ordinary medicine we would advise our friends
who are at all indisposed, to give a trial—it will
recommend itself: It should, in liter , be in every
family. No other medicine can produce such ev
idences of merit.
Evidence upon evidence has been received (like
the foregoing) from all sections of the Union, the
also thraa years, and the strongest testimony in its
favor, is, that there is inure of it used in the prac
tice of the regular Physicians of Philadelphia, than
all other nostrums combined, a fact that can easily
be csablislied, and folly proving that a scientific
preperation will Meet with their quiet approval
when presented even in this form._
'Phut this Medicine will cure Liver Complaint
and Dyspepsia, nu one can doubt after using it us
directed. It acts specifically upon the stomach and
liver; it is preferable to calomel in all biliou4 dis
eases—the effect is immediate. They can be ad
ministered to tamale or infant with safety and re
liable benefit at any time.
