NEW Yong, April 23, 1856.
Spring I beautiful spring 1 though tardy in its
approach, has at length burst upon us in all its
loveliness and attendant benign influences,—
After the refreshing showers with which we
have been favored, so rapid has been the pro
gress of vegetation that one could almost see
the grass grow and the leaves unfold. 'Tis
true that to we denizens of this labyrinthian
forest of bricks - and mortar—of brown-stone
and marble, nature's sweetest charms are de
nied, and for us the spring flowers aro "born
to blush unseen," nor are we privileged to in
hale their perfume as they bud forth in smiling
meadows and on. mossy banks, yet has spring
its Attendant delights,—the inspiriting, fresh
ness of the air, the sudden transition from som
bre gloom and sparkling rain to sunshine and
clear blue sky giving exhilirating buoyancy
even to the most closely pent-up slaves of the
desk and counter.
On Wednesday last we had a miniature edi
tion of the Egyptian plague of darkness, the
sun taking a brief leave of absence from duty
during the morning. So dense was the pre
vailing gloom that about 11 o'clock many
stores were lighted op. For a short time rain
fell heavily, and we had it sudden tornado of
wind, frequent flashes of fierce lightning, and
several peals of thunder,—;in fact the first
thur.der-storm of 1855. Suddenly the rain
ceased, the light gradually returned until the
sun again shone forth in all its splendor, and
nature resumed her wonted serenity. During
the storm, a house in East Brooklyn was struck
by the electric current, and the occupant
knocked down insensible, the lightning strik
ing him on the right side, passing down the
leg to the boot, from which it escaped by burst
ing the leather from the sole on each side.—
Strange to say, beyond a severe fright, the
gentleman escaped with little injury. We had
also a thunder storm on Friday.
The devotees of the bottle and lovers of rum
appear determined to make the most of the
little time lett previous to the introduction of
the Maine Law, as since its passing the liquor
trade is brisker and more liquor has been con
sumed than previously. The law has created
dismay and consternation among the portly
dealers, particularly since Mayor Wood public.
ly announced his determination to execute the
law, whatever may be the personal consequen
ces to himself. Many liquor dealers, particu
larly Germans, seemed determined to attempt
an evasion of the law, by metamorphosing their
groggeries into provision and segar stores, with
a recess in the rear for accommodating custo
mers with drinks on the sly; but these attempt
ed evasions cannot long be hid from the pry
ing, lynx-eyed , guardians of the law. Others,
more timid, thinking wisely that discretion is
the better part of valor, are making prepara
tions to close their stores, and enter some oth
er employment. It is calculated there will be
upwards of two thousand liquor stores to let.
The ship-building business in this port is
very dull, with little prospect of assuming a
better aspect Until next spring. The work now
in progress contrasts strikingly with the cor•
responding seasons of former years. There
are only _eleven builders employed on now
work, which consists of three steamer's and
eleven sailing vessels, with a total twinge of
11,180. The machinery of the U. S. 'steam
frigate Niagara will be ready as soon as the
hull, which is note being planked, is prepared
for its reception. About 300 men are now at
work at the engines, and the number will be
augmented as soon as practicable, in order to
push the work to completion.
The Board of Councilmen, after long delib
eration, have agaeed upon the plan submitted
by Messrs. Gilbert, Jackson and Stuart for a
New City Ball, as far excelling all others in
beauty of design and adaptation to the wants
of the city. The Commissioner of Repairs
and Supplies was instructed to advertise for
proposals for the erection of said building, which
is to be located in the Park, near the present
City Hall. When completed, the buildings will
be an ornament worthy the Empire City.
Barnum, self confessedly the Prince of Hum

" About two weeks after this, I had the
pleasure of participating, in a gunpowder
explosion, on which occasion my arms and
legs were scattered over the village, and,
my mangled remain pretty equally distrib
uted throughout the entire county. Un
der these circumstances my life was des
paired of, and my classmates had bought
a pine coffin, and borrowed whole shirts
to attend the funeral in ; when the invin
cible power of your four horse-power bal
sam (which I happened to have in my vest
pocket) suddenly brought together the
scattered pieces of my body—collected my
limbs from the rural districts—put new
life into my shattered frame, and I was re
stored, uninjured to my friends, with a
new set of double teeth. I have preserv
ed the label which enveloped the bottle,
and have sewed it into the seat of my
pantaloons, and I now bid grim death de
fiance, for I feel that I am henceforth un
killable, and in fact I am even now gener
ally designated the Great Western ./Ichit,
les.' Yours, entirely,
I feel that after this, Mr. Editor, I need
give you no more reports of third persons,
but will nevertheless detail some of mi l
own personal experience of the article.—
I caused some to be applied to the Wash
tenaw Bank after its failure, and while the
Balsam lasted the Bank redeemed its notes
with specie. The cork of one of the bot
tles dropped upon the head of a childless
widow, and in six weeks she had a young
and blooming husband. Administered
some to a hack-driver in a glass of gin and
sugar, and that day he swindled but seven
people, and only gave two ofthem bad
money in change. Gave a few drops
gratis to apoor woman who was earning
a precarioul subsistence by making calico
shirts with a one-eyed needle, and the
next day she was discovered to be heir of
a large fortune. The Know-Nothing can
didate for Mayor of the city has sent for
a bottle, and it has entirely cured him of a
violent diarrhea. Gave some to an tip-town
actor, and that night he said "damned"
only twenty-one times. One of the daily
papers got the next dose, and in the next
but one there were but four editorial false
hoods, seven indecent advertisements, and
two columns and a half of home-made
i Foreign Correspondence." Caused fif
teen drops to be given to the low comedian
of a Broadway Theatre, and that night he
was positively dressed more like a man
titan a monkey, actually spoke some lines
of the author, made only three inane at
tempts at puerile witticisms—only twice
went out of his way to introduce some
grossly indelicate line into his part, and
for a wonder, lost so much of his self con
ceit that for a full half-hour he did not be.'
hove himself the best comedian in the
world. • Gave some to a news-boy, and he
manufactured but three fires, a couple of
murders, and one horrible railroad accident
in the next thirty minutes. Put some on
the outside of the Crystal Palace, and the
same day the stock went from 22 up to 44.
Our whole Empire city is entirely chan
ged by the miraculous rower of " Doe
stick's Patent Self-Acting Four Horse-Po
wer Balsam." The gas is lighted on the
dark nights, instead of the moonlight even
ings—there are no more highway robber
ies in the streets, or, if there are, the offen
ders, when arrested. are instantly dischar
ged by the police magistrate. No more
building materials on the sidewalks ; no
more night murders ; no more Sunday
, ows; no more dirty streets ; no more duels
in Hoboken, and no more lies in the news
papers. Broadway is swept and garnish
ed ; the Mr. P.'s are civil, and the boys
don't steal any more dogs. In fact, so well
content arc we now with our City, that we
feel, as the Hibernian poet so beautifully
says : . .
_"0, if there be an Elysian on earth,
It is this--it is this."
Orders for me Balsam, accompanied by
the mone . y, will be immediately attended
to; otherwise, not, for, my partner and I
have resolved to sell for cash only, feeling

that it should cure all kinds (dimmer.

Some of the wholesale Druggists who have
been in business twenty and thirty years, say
that nothing in the annals of patent medicines
was over like it. There is ft universal praise of
it from all quarters.
In my own practice I always kept It strictly for
humors—but since its introduction as a general
family medicine, great and wonderful virtues
have been found in it that I never suspected.
Several eases of epileptic fits—a disease which
was always considered incurable, have been cu

prove effectual in all eases of that dreadfttl mal

ed the excellent effects of your HYGEANA OR
INHALING HYGEAN VAPOR AND CHERRY Sneer,

in favor of counter-iritation in affections of the

Prof. S Center writes us as follows :
GENTLEMEN,--I have recently had occasion
to test your Cherry Syrup and Hygean Vapor
in a case of chronic sore throat, that had refused
to yield to other fortes of treatment, and the re
sult has satisfied me, that whatever may be
the composition of your preparation, it is no
imposition, but an excellent remedy. I wish
for the sake of the afflicted that it might be
brought within the reach of all.
Rv. Doctor CHEEVER writes:—
New-York NOV. 15, 1854.
DEAR Sin: —I think highly of Dr. Curtis's
Ilygeana, as a remedy in diseases of the throat

test its efficacy. I am convinced that it is
a most excellent medicine, both the Syrup and
the inhaling application to the chest.
