Li one of the best purgativO and liver medi
eines now before the public, that acts as a Ca
thartic, easier, milder, and more effectual than
any titer medicine known. It is not only a Ca
thartic, but a Liver remedy, acting first on the
Liver to eject its morbid, then on the stomach
and bowels to carry off that matter. thus accom
plishing two purposes effectually, without any of
the painful feelings experienced in the operation
of most Cathartics. It stregthens the system at
the same time that it purges it , and when taken
daily in moderate doses, will strenghten and
build it up with unusual rapidity.
The Liver is one of j the principal regula
tors or the human body ; and when it per
forate its functions well G the powers of the sys
tem are fully develop- ed. The stomach is
almost entirely depen- .0 dent on the healthy
action of the Liver forthe proper perform
ance of its functions. A When the stomach is
to fitult, the bowels are Q at fault and the whole
system suffers in eon- 0 sequence of ono organ
—the Liver— having • ceased to do its duty.
For the diseases of Vot that organ one of the
proprietors has madd gp it his study, in a prac

Imagination is that power of the mind
which pre-supposes things before they
take place, or which will never come to
pass. A large part of happiness —so call
et!, which people often enjoy is wore the
effect of imagination than reality. Hope
being the vivifying principle of our na
ture endues us with elastic energy, and ur.
ges the most toilsome, arduous enterprizes.
The mind, in gazing into futurity, decks
every object with the brilliant rainbow
hue of lasting felicity, and seldom notices
the shadowed side of the picture of life.
It heightens the most attractive graces, ad_
ding new charms to each individual feature
that claims our thought. In excursions
into the regions of fancy, man is constrain.
od by no limits nor impeded by difficulties.
Desire and imagination soar aloft with
wings of equal fleetness and follow each
other in scenes of ecstatic richness, and of
magic beauty, man lingers and hopes as ev
idently surely as if they were painted on
the substantial canvass of actual truth, and
it is unwilling indeed that he leaves the
delusion whets rudely interrupted by stern

Imagination yields—fruits that unfit
The palate for the more substantial food
Of our own land—reali ty .'—Langdon.
Often imagination b - comes so powerful
that it envelopes the understanding with
an Impervious veil, and looks most beauti
ful, when reality is the most gloomy. As
the mid night lightning is the more instant
ly vivid, than the blaze of noon day so the
entrancements of fancy are more splendid
in ooatra•distinction to the misery we may
be in partakers of. Philosophers have de
spised the enjoyment of mental creations,
and mony have arrogated the privilege of
determining upm the fittest pursuits or
pleasures of their fellow mortals. Absor
bed in abstruse speculations their finer feel•
ings become blunted, and to them the real
and proper pleasures of imagination (with
in a' wise control) seem, in time, insipid
and useless. They lose that pure percep
tion which opens such inexhaustible en.
joymee• to rational beings, and therefore
unhesitatingly condemn all they feel unfit
ted to participate in. From the civil end
political institutions of society, and fro:n
our own inclination, we see that it is wise
ly decreed that the direction given to our
talents should be different. 'the wants of
society do not require all men to be acute
logicians, profound mathematicians,
politicians, nor would all minds be adap•
ted to such pursui.s. Genius, by whose
aid desires arc gratified according to the
natural bias of the mind, belongs to a large
class of human beings. Others hare a
greater strength of intellect or inventive
faculty, and thus we see that Providence
has not unwisely planted the prolific seeds
of taste and imagination in the minds of
his children. Exposed as we are to afflic
tions, encompassed by dangers, and diffi•
culties, we are apt to seek solace in whatev
er is within our reach, and in so doing, the
poisoned chalice of criminal indulgence is
too often seized upon. To draw humanity
from these enticements, and lead toward
the paths of peace a lively imagination is
granted, It pictures vice, and shows its
snares, and thus, by the aid of fear, we are
saves from destruction. If Necessity is
the mother of Invention, Imagination must
be the sister, for she assists her in almost
every act. How could the artist model his
life.speaking figures on canvass without a
previous idea indelibly impressed on his
mind 1 Or how could the mechanic carry
out the plans of the inventor without a
preconceived no.ion of the finished work ?
bike every other trait of character, it is, I
admit, liable to be misused, and in such ca
ses produces a morbid melancholy, not easy
of eradication from the system. But we
must guard against this, ar.d let what were
intended to be blessing's, be in reality bles
, sed to us.
*tied Vistellnil.
Taking into account the habits of the
people, tea and coffee, for breakfast, add to
hqman health and life if a single cup be
taken at either meal, and is never increased
in strength frequency, or quantity. If they
were tnere stimulants, and were taken thus
in moderation and with uniformity, they
would in time, become either inert, or the
system would become so habituated to their
employment, as to remain in the same re
lative position to them, as if they had ne.
ver been used ; and, consequently, as to
themselves., they had better never have
been used, as they are liable to abuse. But
science and fact unite in declaring them to
be nutritions as well as stimulant; hence,
they will do a new good to the system ev
ery day, to the end of life, just as bread
and fruits do; hence, we never got tired of
either. But the use of bread and fruits is
daily abused by multitudes, and dyspepsia
and cholera morbus result; yet, we ought
not to forego their employment on that ac
count, nor should we forego the use of tea
and coffee because their inordinate use give
nouralgies and other ailments.
But the habitual use of tea and coffee,
at the last and first meals of the day, has
another high advantage, is productive of
incalculable good in the nay of averting
We will drink at our meals, and if we do
not drink these, we will drink what is
worse—cold water, milk, or alcoholic mix.
tures. The regular use of these last will
lead the young to drunkenness; the incon
siderate employment of simple milk, at
meals, by sedentary people—by all, except
the robust—will either constipate, or render
bilious; while cold water largely used,
that is to the extent of a glass or two at a
meal, especially in cold weather, attracts
to itself so much of the heat of the system
in raising said water to the temperature of
the body—about one hundred degrees—
that the process of digestion is arrested ; in
the meanwhile giving rise to a deathly sick
ness of the stomach, to twisting pains, to
vomitings, purgings, and even to cramps,
to fearful contortions, and sudden death ;
which things would have been averted,
had even the same amount of liquid, in the
shape of simple hot water, been used. But
any ono knowing these things, and being
prejudiced against the use of tea and cof
fee, would subject himself to be most un
pleasantly stared at, and questioned, if not
ridiculed, were he to ask for a cup or glass
of hot water. But, as tea and coffee are
now universal beverages, are on every ta
ble, and every body is expected to tale one
or the other, they are unwittingly the
'means of' safety and of life to multitudes.
They save life, where a glass of water
would have destroyed it. Elo that the use
of these beverages is not merely allowa
able, it is politic, it is a necessity.—Hall's
Journal of Ilealth.
NM son of the Emerald Isle, who ar
rived in New York the other day, was
naked by un acluaintance to take a glass
of grog, and declined, giving as a reason
for his refuse! that he had joined the tern
perence society in Cork, before leaving
Ireland- Hie friend replied that that was
tit) consequence, as a pledge given in Ire
land was not binding here. To this piece
of left-band immortality Pat indignantly
retorted—"Do you suppose whin I brought
me body to America, I'd be afthur leaving
my trawl in Ireland ?"
In the first place, if people are to live
happily together, they must not fancy, be
cause they are thrown together now, that
all their lives have been exactly similar
up to the prevent time, that they started
exactly alike, and that they are to be for
the future of the same mind. A thorough
conviction of the difference of men is the
great thing to be assured of in social knowl
edge. It is to lite what Newton's law is
to astronomy. Sometimes men have a
knowledge of it with regard to the world,
in general, they do not except the outer
world to agree with them in all points, but
are vexed at not being able to drive their
own tastes and opinions into those they
live with, Diversities distress them. Yet
we might as well say, ' , why all these stars
why this difference; why not all one star ?"
Many of the rules for people living to
gether in peace follow front the above.
For instance, not to interfere• unreasona
bly with others, not to ridicule their tae•
tea, not to question and re question their re
solves, not to indulge in perpetual comment
on their proceedings, and to delight in their
having other pursuits than ours, are all
based open a thorough perception of the
simple fact that they are not we.
Another rale for living happily where
others is to avoid having stock subjects off,
disputation. It mostly happens, when
people live much together, that they come
to have certain set topics, round which,
from frequent, dispute, there is such a
growth of angry words, mortified vanity,
and the like, that the original subject of
difference becomes a stanthvg subject of
quarrel; and there is a tendency in all mi
nor disputes to drift down to it.
Again, if people wish to live well togeth
er, they must not hold too much to logic,
and suppose that everything, is to be set
tied by sufficient reason. Dr. Johnson
saw this clearly with regard to married
people, when he said, "Wretched would
be the pair above all manner of wretch,d
ness who should be doomed to adjust by
reason, every morning, all the minute de
tails of a doMestic day," But the epplica•
don should to much more general than he
made it. Theo) is no dine for such rea
sonings, and nothing that is worth them
And when we recollect how two lawyers,
or two politicians can go on contending
and that there is no end of one-sided rea
soning on any subject, we shall not be
lure that finch contention is the best mode
of arriving at truth; but certainly it is not
the way to arrive at good temper.
if you would be loved as a companion
avoid unnecessaSr criticism upon those
with whom you live. The number of peo
ple who have taken out judges' patents
for themselves is very large in any society.
Now it would be hard for a titan to live
with another who Ira always criticising
his actions, even if it were kindly and
just criticism. It would be like living be
tween the, glasses of a microscope. But
these sell elected judges, like their proto
types, are apt to have the persons they
judge brought before them in the guise
of culprits. One of tne most ?revoking
forms of criticism above alluded to is that
which may be called criticism over the
shoulder. "Had I been consulted"—•'llad
you listened to me"—“But you always
will"--and such sort scraps of sentences,
may remind many of us of dissertations
which we have suffered and inflicted, and
of which we cannot call to mind any sooth
ing •.ffect
Another rule is, not to let fsmiliarity
swallow up all courtesy. Many of us
haven habit of saying to those with whom
we live such things as we say obout stran
gers behind their back. nese is no place
however, where real politeness is of more
value than where wo mostly think it would
be superfluous. You may 'say more truth
or rather speak out more plainly to your
associates,' but not less courteously than
you do to strangers,
