lierto the nutruing attending this fearful scourge
which annuelly destroys ninety-live thonsand
persons in the United States alone ; and a cor
rect caiculation shows that of the present popu
lation of the earth, eighty minims are destined
to fill the Consumptive's graves.
Truly the quiver of death !tenni, arrow so fa- I
tal as Consumption. In all ages it hie been the
great enemy of life, for it Spnres neither age nor

ful, the graceful and the gifted. ISy the help of
that Supreme Being from whom cosneth every
gond tied perfect gilt, I em enabled to offer to
the afflicted n permanent and speedy core in
Consumption. The first cause of tubercles is
from impure blood, and the immediate eliect pro
duced by their deposition in the lungs is to pre- !
vent the free admission ot air into the air cells,
which causes n weakened challis through the
entire system. Then surely it in more rational
to expect greater geed Wm medicines mitering
the rarities of tie haw than those administered '
through the stomach; the patient will always
find the lungs free end the breathing, easy, after
luhating remedies. Thus, Inhalniion in a local
remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally and .

The inhalation of ammonia will rouse tho SVS

convincing proof of the constitutional effects of
inhalation, is the Met that sickness lo always pro •

critic., that proper melodies, carefully prepar

should produce the happiest results 1 During

remarkable cures, even after the sufferers had
been pronounced in the last stages, which lolly
satisfies mo that consumption is no longer a fit-

original, and founded on long experience and a
thorough investigation. My perWct acquaintance

'Talkie' of spree, boys, put me in
mind o' my young days—l should rather
guess I was in for them myself, them
times !'
This was said by an old man, whom we
will introduce as Mr. James Waddle, or
rather 'old Jim Waddle.' Everybody,
(except the reader,) knows him and his
penchant for yarn spinning. It is the
evening of a military training day. There
are a goodly number, after the company
are dismissed from duty who arc loun
ging around, and - nrimv all gather around
the aforesaid Jim, to hear the yarn to
which he had already began the, prelude
and only awaits somebody to urge him to
go on. This there are enough to do.—
lle then enquired what they would have—
,one of his huntin' or courtin' sprees!'—
The boys unanimously demanded the lat
ter. Then, after requesting that none of
them should laugh till after he got through
with a few preliminary hems, he began
[I wish I could report in his inimitable
language verbatim et literatim.]
'When I war a boy, you know, daddy,
moved from Virginia to Kaintuck. I'd
been burn and foutched up on the fronteers
and Kaintuck was a p •rfect paradise for
me to hunt bars and Injins. But I forgot

I was always entail' up some deviltry

the only way I could show it was by cast

We had meetln's as well as frolics some
times. Vlien the preacher was a preach.
in' tender heartedness, brotherly kindness
and love, I wasn't a thinkin'o' notbin'
else. I used to set. where I could look at
the girls in the face—and then gaze at
SLIM party one, till dhe'd blush as red as a
pepper-pod. Then I felt so queer about
the gizzard, and wished an earthquake
would come, and throw me right into her
lap ! I was in love, but I couldn't tell
who I loved most. There was i'eggy
Almenhanuney, a mighty fine gal, even in
her tow-linen frock i her cheeks war as

these threu I cutild'iu tell for my slife

dozen string o' beads as large as the end
o' your little finger, you may think she
was a charmer—l did anyhow. Of all the
magnum bosom charmers I ever seed, she
was the magnum buinctimest ! When I
first seed her, 'twas at Deacon Snook's
mectin'. I fastened my eyes upon her
her's met mine—she looked steadfastly,
then smiled a charmin' smile, and blushed
and looked down. Lardy ! thar was a

my two jacket pockets. I felt I was a gon

Agin the next mectin' I was prepared to

starched and ironed my new fine shirt as
stiff and sleek as a sheet of new tin. This
shirt had the finest kind of flax linen in
the bosom and collar, but the invisible
part of it was course tow, with a hem that
would cable a steamboat. Now while Sal

She kept me up late, say two o'clock
and in spite of the novelty, (it being the

and it rained like blue blazes. I had to
do it, and did without exposhe the blanks
in my linen. I resolved to be up afaro
any one else in tin mornin', on the same
account and some others.
That was the last I Icnow'd ull waken-

slept under the bed] a pullin' the covers

I made a mighty lungs over the footboard

Jist now all the hounds commenced yel

both gals run in to see what was up, and
when they seed it was me they ran out

while tothurs, through the crack, battled

But all that firnt do no good. I coultrnt

In my last I proposed, sng,gesting what
V( deem the only true system of morel* to
be taught in our schools.
If ti family attßetuary is properly sus
tained. and proper moral training intiOvd
with the education of our youth is schools,
our Itepublican institutions will be perpet
uated. They will constantly advance in
glory and purity. They will attract
attention of all nations, sup the
of thruncs, drive despots Inuit their ,tr:r...
break thu captive.,' bonds and rat n - 1,1 th
prisoners fri2(
But, it we ne. , :lect the moral trainirpz of
the prea,et, and of future generations, we
core not bow brillittetly the intellectual
powers of the mind are unfolded, our
countso distilled to become , llabylonish.'
Our?*# institutions will crumble away is
the hands of designing politicians, end the
last lope of the political world will be lost.
And instnd of handing down to future
generations the glorious privileges herpes
entail upon them the curse of dragging
cut a miserable existenc6 under the iron
hand of tyranny.
lf, then, moral training is of such vast
importance in our civil government, nn
earnest inquiry after the best system, is
the duty of every good citizen. We do
no propose the sympathetic -system of Dr.
Adam Smith ; the oscillating moral code of
David 11 uute ; the laughing. system of
Thomas Paine; nor yet the dancing, sett
timental, and licentious morals of Rossetti'.
Nor can we trust the more plausible sys
tem of Warburton, Bentham and others,
who make .conduciveness to happinc,
the ground of moral obligation, and cue
found the idea of the right and the useful."
