WREN 1 DIE.
Here is a little flower, from the Louisville
Journal, whose perfume is the soul of sweet
Will the friends I Tone be near me
When I die
Will they shrink to touch the pallor
Of the lips that turn to meet them,
Trembling with the last "Good•bye I"
May my father's arms enfold me
- When I die I
They will ehield my heart from terror
When I go to meet the Ando.
That beneath the flowets lie.
And my mother, sweetest mother,
When I die,
I would have thy voice to soothe me
Till it mingled with the music
Of the angels in the sky.
Brothers, sisters, kiss me often
When I die ;
And my lips will smile in closing
As if clasped in dreams so golden
That I will not wake to sigh.
Ah, the world will soon forget me
When I die ;
And its flowers will bloom as brightly,
And its birds will sing ns sweetly,
Though I loved them and I die.

Over his head the sword of Damocles hung
ever suspended by a hair, the death's head
was never absent from his banquet, and
the dread of sudden death had discolored
all his ideas of life. He was the morbid

and while not sour or sullen, his piety was
weighty and lugubrious. It may well be

are as naturil as to breathe. Brother C.

Por the Lancet. Leeches and Blisters 1!1
when the undersigned, after a long series of
laborious and costly experiments, became fully
confirmed in his conviction, that the Antiphle.
gistic Salt which he now has the happiness to
present to the American public, won
for Thood•letting, Leeches and Blisters, his
mind was so agitated that he could not sleep for
ninny nights. The cause of his agitation was
the striking fact, that the manner of its operation
like that of the vim in vaccination, could not
he satisfactorlaly explained upon any known
principle. How, in what way, it so effectually
subdued lallonimatory Disease and no others,
was at first wholly inexplicable—but, on further
experiment, it was proved that it eralizes the
fluids of the body, the want of an equilibrinin in
which, is the sole cause of inflammation. Such

When it takes the place of blisters, ointment

The discoverer eas withheld it from the pub-
lic till now, by the advice of a judicious physt•
cian and valuable friend whom he consulted—
a gentleman known and felt in the medical
world—and who desired to submit it to the test
o f experiment. After witnessing under his own
scrutinizing eye, its signal triumph over both
acute and chronic hylammatory diseases, in re
peated and re-repeated trials, he offered $25.-

The disuse of the lancet and blisters, is de
manded both by humanity by humonity and
science. Is it not a mistake, to suppose that
a kettle of boiling water (the inflamed blood)
will cease to boil, by dipping out a part of it—
or a cask of bad cider (bad blood) be mode
good, by drawing a portion of it? Is it not a
mistake, to suppose that blisters:and rnbefacients
will remove inflammation, when they virtually
superadd one inflammation to another? The
late Dr. B. Waterhouse, of Harvard Universi
ty, said "I am sick of learned rinaekeq„' One
of the most eminent physicians In New England
acknowledged just before bis death, that "he
has been doubting for many years, wether I land
letting and blisters did nut aggravate rather
than arrest disease." Some who stand
high in the Old and New school, have quite re
cently ezpousnd his views and now openly con
fess, they believe the lancet, setons leeches and
blisters injure ten where they benefit one—
They think there is a meaning to bout. 12. 23

blood (there never is too much) that causes di

fluids and solids.
The special excellence of the Antiphlogistie
Salt, is that without the useless loss of blood
and strength, it effectually subdued inflammato

brium of all the fluids in the body and a conse

the vaccine matter, and extraordinaty influence
over the Tens and arieries—resulting in a grad

against having it placed in the categcry of

shall go forth to the world, like the pure gold

Sworn statement of David McCreary, of Na.
pier Township, Bedford county.
In April, 1850, as near as I can rememembee
a small pimple tootle its appearance on my up ,
per lip, which soon became enlarged and sore:
I used poultices of sorrel, and II wash of blue'
vitrol, without effect. Finding the sore extend
ing I called on Dr. Ely, of Schellsburg, who'
pronounced it CANCER, and prescribed a wash'
of sugar of lead and bread poultices. Finding
these remedies of no avail, I called upon Dr.
Shaffer, of Davidsville, Somerset county, who
also pronounced the disease Cancer and gave
me internal and external remedies—the latter
consisting principally of caustic ; but all to no
purpose, as the disease continued spreading to
ward the nose. I next need a preparation of ar
senic, in .the form of salve. This for a time
checked the disease, I lit the inflammation soon
increased. I next called upon Dr. Statler of St.
Clairsville, Bedford county, who also pronoun
ced the disease to he Cancer, and applied a Salve
said to be a never-failing remedy, but it had no
effect whatever in checking the spread of the
sore. In December, of the same year, the di.-
' ease had eaten away a greater part of my upper
lip, and had attacked the nose, when I went to
Cincinnati. where I consulted Dr. R. S. Newton
of the Electic Medical College. He pronoun
ced the disease "a cutaneous Cancer, superin
duced by an inordinate use of mercury." U.
applied mild zinc ointment, and gave me inter
, nal remedies. My face healed up, but the in
flammetion was not thoroughly removed, In
Fehruary, .1857, be pronounced me cured, and
I left for home. In April the disease again re
turned, and se violent seas thepain that I could
not rest at night. Late in May I returned to
Cincinnati. and again placed myself under the
charge of Dr. Newton, with whom I remained
midi September, during which time he used
I every known remedy, and partly succeeded in
: checking the disease, but when I returned
11 home there were still three discharging ulcers
