By the help of Below Twelfth, that Supreme Being from whom toctit every good and perfectgilt, lum mudded to offer to Aug.5,'57.4 the afflicted a permanent and speedy cure in Consumption. The first cause of tubercle.: is from Impure blood, and the immediate facet pro duced by their deposition in the lungs is to pre vent the free admission of air into the air cells, which causes a weakened vitality through the entire system. Then surely it is more rational to expect greater good from medicines entering the cavities of the lungs than those administered through the stomach ; the patient will always find the lungs free and the breathing easy, after Inhaling remedies. Thus, Inhalation is a local remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally end with more power and certainty than r eineffles administered by the stomach. To prove the pow erful and direct influence of this mode of admin istrution, chloroform inhaled will entirely de stroy sensibility in a few minutes, paralyzing the entire nervous system, so that a limb may be amputated without the slightest pain; inhaling the ordinary burning gas will destroy life in a few hours, The inhalation of ammonia will rouse the sys tem when fainting or apparently dead. The o dor of many of the medicines is puce ptible in the slim a few minutes after bring inhaled, and may be immediately detected in the blood. A convincing proof of the constitutional effects of inhalation, is the tact that sickness is.always pro • dared by breathing foul air—is not this positive evidence that proper remedies, carefully prepar ed and judiciously administered thro' the lungs should produce the happiest results I During eighteen years' practice, many thousands suffer ing from diseases of the longs mad Mit., have been under my cure, tint!

Secret diseases aro the greatest enemies to health, as they are the firot cause of Consumption, Scrofula and many oth er diseases, and should be a terror to the hu man family. A. permanent cure is scarcely ever effected, a majority of the cases fulling in to the bands of incompetent persons, who not only fail to cure the diseases but ruin the con stitution, filling the system with mercury, which with the disease, hastens the sufferer into a ra pid Consumption. But should the disease and the treatment not cause death speedily and the victim marries, the disease is entailed npon the children. who aro born with feeble constitutions, and the current of life corrupted by a virus which betrays itself in Scrofula, 'Vetter, Ulcers, Eruptions. and oth er affections of the skin.

THE NEW YORK TjaHUNE. 1857-SS. VI TUE TRIBUNE was first issued as a Daily on the 10th of April, 1841. Its weekly edition was commenced in September of the smile year; its send-Weekly in May, 1815. It was the first daily in America to issue a double or • eight page sheet at a low price, and it has kept at least eves with the ffirernost of its rivals to ; the expansion of Newspaper enterprise, which the great extension of Railroads, stud the es-1 habiliment of the Telegraphic system have crowded into these last sixteen eventful years. I No larger journal is afforded at NO 100 , a price 1 in any quarter of the world; none in America, no mutter at what price issued, pays an equal amount, weekly or 'notably fur f intellectual labor. It employs c.respotalents regularly iu the leading capitals of Europe, and at the most important points on this continent, with a liher. al stuff of writers and reporters ut home, re. yarding full, early and accurate intelligence as the first object of a newspaper, and the timely and thorough elucidation thereof as the chief end of its Editorials. In that spirit, the Trib- I line hue been and will be conducted, extenditi,g and perfecting its correspondence so fast us the j incrcase of its pat!onage will justify the ex pease. Should the current attempt to connect the old with the new World by the magnetic wire prove successful, wo shall very soon,•at a heavy cost to ourselves and, we trust, a corms pending advantage to our readers, publish each morning a synopsis of the preceding day's oc. currences throughout Europe, Northern Africa and Western Asia, with regular reports of the markets, the monetary aspects and harvest prospects of hither Eurupe. With a good atlas beside him and his daily paper on his fireside table, the American farmer on artisan within a day's rideoWe city may then study each eve• ning the dos of the civilized world through out the day preceding; and it seems hardly possible that any one who can read, but cope• orally one who has children to educate, will lom gar deny hiMself the pleasure and profit of a daily journal.

Its leading idea is the honoring of honest, useful work in whatever sphere or capacity, and the consequent elevation of the laboring class in knowledge, virtue and general esteem. It is necessarily hostile to Slavery under all hies. peels, to intemperance •in whatever burnt or degree with its accessories, to war save in the detbuce of country and liberty against actual invasion, and to every form of gambling. Desi. ring to see production extended and tmour. , aged, while wild speculation and useless traffic are curtailed it titters the policy of sustaining i and diversifying home industry by a discrinii• tinting tariff—a policy which tends to increase the price of grain to the farmer while diminish ing that of bread to the artisan, by reducing the distance across which their respective Oro i ducts are exchanged and, of course, reducing the cost of their transfer. Regarding Wrists in all its phases, and every form and device of national covetousness, with unquali• lied abhorrence as the buNe of Republics and in their triumph the grave of Equal Human Right, we seek by every means to win and woo the attention of our countrymen from projects of aggrandizement abroad to enterprizes of de. velupmeut and benffieetice at home, foremost among which we rank a Railtoad through the heart, dour territory to connect the waters of the Atlantic with those of the Pacific. Belie, ing that the goods of this are nut yet fairly distributed, and that 110 one ready to work she'd ever famish in unwilling idleness, it lends an open ear to every suggestion of social improve. meat which does not countervail the dictates of eternal morality nor war ilium that natural right of every one to whatsoever he has fairly produced or honestly acquired, whose denial must sink mankind into the chaos and night of barbarism and universal squalor. With is pro. found consciousness that idlers, drunkards. Lenines and profligates Cllll never be other (in the main) thou needy and wretched, it bears aloft the great truth that prevention is better than punishment—that the child trained op in the way Ire should go, will rarely in after years desert that way for the thorny paths of vice and crime—that a true education—Religious, mimed and industrial, as well as intellects .I—is the most effective temporal antidote to the cc roes and woes of our race. Recognizing in the moat degraded specimen of humanity a divine spark hints should be reverently cherished, not ruthicsnly trodden out, we have charity tbr oil forms of evil but those which seek personal ad. valitagu timing!' the debasement of our fellow. beings. The champion of no class or caste, the devotee of no sect, we would fain be the its terpreter to each other of men's better impulses and aspirations, the harbinger of general con cord between Labor and capital, and among those whom circumstances or misapprehensions have thrown in unnatural antagonisin. A co• temporary mice observed that Ire never knew a hard, grasping, niggardly employer who did not Irate the Tribune, nor a generous, large stiuled, kindly one, willing to live and let live, who did not like it. We ask mo higher praise, no warmer attestation. The circulation of the Tribune is at this time as follows: Daily, 32,000 copies; Weekly, 176,500 copies; Senii•Weelelv, 16,000 copies; Culiforniat and European, 6,060 copies; Total, MOO copies. That of the semi weekly and weekly we believe to be exceeded by nu other newspaper published in the world; that of the Daily fulls behind that of some dour cotempo rules. Dad out hostility to human Slavery and the liquor traffic been guarded and politic, our Daily issues would now be some thousands heavier and our advertising tier mare lucrative; but of our patronage geuerally we have no rea son, no wish to complain. Of late, a concerted effort has been made to diminish our rural circulation through the in fluence of the Postmasters, some of who ens lark in it eagerly, others under political re ' straint ; while a large number, we are happy, time the sake of human nature, to state, refused to Le dragooned into it at all. Still, we have en made to feel the heavy hand of power, told have doubtless lost thousands ut subset ibers in n eq..ce. Pretexts to which mo individual iu his private capacity would have stooped have relied on to justify the stoppage of our papers within reach of their subscribers and rightful owners, and their retention in the posbutlice till their value was destroyed. Postmasters hare been schooled by rival journals—several of theta living un their sell-pruelaimed ability to serve us an antidote to the Tribune—as no • their political duty to promote at our ex the dissemination of gazettes of adverse l ud i• tics. We shuil outlive this warfare, hat we do not affect indiffertnee to it. In the open tiol f of diseu•ision, we fear nothing ,• but in the tens ul thousands of rural neighborhoods where the Postmaster can induce many of his quiet.neigh- Laws to take the journal he recommends, we have already lost n 0.3 patrons, and expect to loot more as our subscriptions fur this year ex pire. We appeal, therefore, to the !warty, faithful, fearless advocates of free labor and free soil throughout the land to take care that this facial warfare on our circulation be not prosecuted wit huat•counteraction. W e employ no travelling agents, fur we will nut consent to have the public harassed with the solicitations of strangers in our behalf. We strike the name of each subscriber to our Weekly or Semi-Weekly front our books so soon an his term has expired, for we will not haunt our pa• Irons with duns fur arrears which they luny say they never intended to incur, for papers which perhaps they never read; Ave rely rot the renewal of our club subseriptietts solely on the volunteered efforts of those who, liking our paper, believe its influence sblutary and worthy to be extended; and thus far our reliance has been justified, as we trust it may centinue to be.

Viscalang. Beacon Brown and the Stranger. Deacon Brown considered himself a pil lar of the church and chief conservative of the pullic morals. nor was this idea of his altogether a delusion. He was a stre nuous advocate of church discipline, and his everyday walk presented to the world an example of the roost rigid piety. Tho', periatirs, a trifle puritinic and bigoted, he was a roan of ancoiripromising virtue. But as Hood says— The company, suppose ma'am was a young gentleman, a stronger to you ?

To the observation of a flower dimly pictured on a stone, we owe the philosoph ical researches in chemistry and light which ultimately gave us a daguerreo type. bronchitis. Mrs. Wisely, the second wife of the Elder, was, for some mason, loft at lime. This lady was quite youthful, and had by her gentle qualities, woa the es teem of the entire Parish. It was during the absence of her husband. that Deacon Brown, on going to the Post Mike one mor ning, received the following comtnunica tion : PODOEVILLE, July 15, 1845, Mr. Brown—Dear Sir take liberty to disclose _to you some tacts which have 1 given me as much pain as they will you r self. I know beyond all question of a doubt that a stranger very mysteriously etude his appearance last night in the pri i vote parlor of Mrs. Wisely. Ile was seen there first about half post eleven o'clock ; AO one seen him enter the house and he has not been known to deport. I think this new visitor was expec,ed, ani that he is destined to share the affections of Mrs. Wisely. The voice of the new coin. er has been distilledy heard in her room, and she has even been heard to address him in the tenderest and most loving tones. Such are the facts. You can act in the rends. s as your sense of duty stay dic tate. Nly opinion is, that should Elder %Visely be informed of the stranger's ad vent, it 'night hasten his return. Yours truly. A FRIEND OF FIDELITY. As the Deacon read this epistle, there was a visible tremor in his hued. Ile pol ished his eyeglass with a silk handker chief, and perused it carefully a second time. But Deacon Brown was not the man to swerve from duty, thoitg't it led him where he should not go. Putting the letter in his hut, and buttoning his coat to the chin, he hastened down to the hard ware store, and whispering to a confiden tial clerk, proceeded to she residence of Mrs. Wisely. He struck his cone very decidedly on the pave, greeted none with his usual 'good morning," but seemed ab• sorbed in the contemplation of a great pur pose. Arriving at the sceno of his triumph, he stationed his clerk in front of the house and giving the bell-knob a cautious pull, was soon admitted by the servant girl. The following dialogue then and there took place: 'ls Mrs. Wisely in V 'Yes, sir ; she's in bed, sir.' The Deacon examined his watch, and muttered 'half past seven.'

The refusal of John Hampden to pay the tax imposed upon him by the tyranny of the British Government was the means of overthrowing the rotten despotism of Charles I. and saving England from the ruin which was impending over it. The foundation of the Roman empire was a cunning trick in an individual combat or duel. American liberty and thirty-one glorious Suites arose from a strong cup of tea made by the Bostonians in 1T75. The magnifying power of the crystal frag ments of a bokun goblet first gave Gallileo the idea of inventing a telescope. A little piece of magnetized steel 'ed to the discov ery of the new world. The erection of a saw mill in California changed the cur rency of the world. The crossing of a litle stream of water speedily subverted the liberties of Rome, and gave to the name of Brutus immortaliiy. The flying of a common paper kite by a printer gave us the magnetic telegraph. The eating of on apple in the garden of Eden brought , sin and death into the world; the giving away of the golden apple caused ten years' war, and the fall of Troy.

A Beautiful Inoident. A correspondent of the Cambridge Chronicle ; in u letter written at Nantucket gives this rare example of disinterested be nevolence Many years ago, a husband and father started from his home to commence his morning work in a rope walk upon our is land. Breakfast time came, and, as was her wont, his faithful wife left her home to convey her husband's breakfast to him. The snow had been falling for some time, but she heeded it not, and started to cross some open low in the outskirts of our town The wind blew violently, and the blinding snow disturbed her so that she lost her path, and when found, some time after, she was leaning against a tail-fence, smo thered, frozen, dead. The father died al so I think, ere long, and their two orphan children were taken to our alias-house. Years passed, and the children grew to womanhood, and in turn were wives and mothers The husband of one of them was drowned a few years ago near our is land, leaving several young children. An aged ratan who had befriended his wife in early years, then took her to his home, and there she toiled hard to support her children. In n0t,,,, way the old man's property was used, until he had nothing I It but his hunib.e out. Then the widow toiled to support !din, till he saw that she woo wasting away under her arduous la bor, and nobly, generously, sent for a law yer, and gave her his cottage which he hod toiled hard to obtain, and in which he hoped to speed his days, and went himself to dwell in our almshouse. He shares a pauper's home today, but his gray hairs are a crown of glory to him- The widow would have preferred to struggle on for her benefactor, but he knew that his life's sands were almost run, and it mattered lit tle where he should be in the hour of death. j One day this winter r lady gave the chil dren of this poor widow some food for their Kurd-workins mother, and un apple each j for themselves. NVlien she next saw them ' she asked how they liked the apples, and the reply was—"We did nut oat them our selves, but carried them to our grandfather at the almshouse." The teacher of our high school recently related the above to a large audience at a Sabbath school festival in uur town, while tears flowed freely down the cheek of man hood, at the pathetic account, of which few had any knowledge. Every heart recog nized the real nobility of the aged pauper, and deemed such an act of self-sacrifice at once generous and disinterested. How TO MAKE BLACK CURRANT WINE, —Pick and squeeze the currants when fully ripe. To one gallon of juice add six quarts of water, and to each gallon of this mixture add three and a half pounds of brown sugar. Mix well together and strain. Put into a cask and let it be ven• tilated till it shall have passed the active or vinous fermentation, when it may bo well corked.
