.dyer's Sarsaparilla
♦ compound remedy, in which we have In
hered to produce the most effectual alterative
that can be made. It is a concentrated extract
of Para Sarsaparilla, so combined with other
*Wan= of still greater alterative power as
to afford an effective antidote for the disease.
Sarsaparilla is reputed to cure. It is believed
that ouch a remedy is wanted by those who
dinar from Strumous'complaints, and that one
which will accomplish their cure must prove
of immense service to this large class of our
atlieteil fellow-citizens. how completely this
compound will do it has been proven by exper
iment on many of the worst cases to be found
of the following complaints I
mterioxs, Manconist. Dumws, DUOPRY, Nan-
so Sr. ANTHONY'. Pine. and indeed the whole
elms of complaints arising from limn= OF
moo BLOOD.
This compound will be found a great pro.
tauter of health, when taken in the spring, to
*ape, the foul humom which fester in the
blood at that season of the year. B the time
ly expulsion of them many rankung atoerarrs
are nipped in the bud, Multitudes can, lay
the aid of this remedy, spare themselves from
the endurance of foul eruptions and ulcerous
ewes, through which the system will strive to
rid itself of corruptions, it not assisted to do
this through the natural channels of the body
ley an alterative medicine. Cleanse out the
vitiated blood whenever you find its impurities
bursting through the skin in pimples, eruptions,
.r sores ; cleanse It when you find it is oh
wafted and sluggish in the veins ; cleanse it
whenever it is foul, mid your feelings will tell
you when. Even where no particular disorder
is felt, people enjoy better health, and live
longer, for cleansing the blood. Beep the
blood healthy, and all is well; hut with this
Pabulum of life disordered, there can be no
asting health. Sootier or later something
must go wrong, and the great machinery of
Ste is disordered or overthrown.
Sarsaparilla has, and deserves much, the
reputation, of accomplishing these ends. But
She world has been egregiously deceived by
preparations of it, partly because the drug
alone has not all the virtue that is claimed
for 'it, but more because many preparations,
pretending to be concentrated extracts of it,
eontain hut little of the virtue of Sarsaparilla,
or any thing else.
During lute years the public have been mis
led by large bottles, pretending to give a quart
of Extract of Sarsaparilla fur one dollar. Most
of these have been frauds upon the sick, for
they not only contain little, if any, Smsaya
rills, but often no curative properties whatev
er. Hence, bitter and painful disappointment
has followed the use of the various extracts of
Sarsaparilla which flood the market, until the
Lame itself is justly despised, and has become
synonymous with imposition and cheat. Still
we call this compound Sarsaparilla, and intend
as supply such II remedy as shall rescue the
came from the load of obloquy which rests
upon it. And we think we have ground for
believing it has virtues which are irresistible
I.y the ordinary run of the diseases it is intend
ed to once. In order to secure their complete
eradication from the system, the remedy should
be judiciously taken according to direction' on
the bottle.

Mn, BREWRTER —At this late date, when
the celebration at this place has been all
mt Si forgotten, it is again brought to our ,
recollection by a communication in this
week's Animal, signed "Defendant,"
whose only object seems to be to make an
uncalled for, unjust and untruthful attack ,
upon some persons whom those acquaint. ,
ed with the circumstances would readily
infer to be sonic of• the officers of the ,
schools, who took no part in the'celobra-
Lion for the, as we think, very good reason
that they being :Superintendents of the
schools, should have had a voice in the
goois.s, wk.a.rume, .16Ary warn ;
us'to the propriety of having a celebration
nor anything else concerning it, and id.
though living to the villug., knew noth•
ing about there going to be one, until late
in the evening when owing to previous or.
rungements, it was impossible for them to
attend, they learned that. meeting was to
take pl ce that evening, at which nrue the
election of officers, &c took place, and
other arrangements were mode for the
holding of the "hard to surpass celehra•
ties." They (the superintendents) very
reasonobly inferring from the manner . of
procedure that they were not "counted in,' ,
and hod neither port nor lot in the matter,
gave nothing towards it, and did not ab
tend it, for this, (although upon them de
volves the responsible duties of superin
tendents which duties they have faithfully ,
and conscientiously discharged according
to their ability) they are visited with the
vile onslaught of 'Defendant,' and notwith•
standing they are ardent sspporters of the
cause of Education generally, Sunday
Schools in particular, and Sunday School
celebrations when gotten up Democrati•
cony, and when they are not willfully or
ignorantly excluded by those who take
the lead in getting them up-, they are-he-Id
up to the public as the characters who
'opposed' the celebration—which is not
true;—they are the persons who have
so 'shamefully failed to comprehend the
benefits of tine Sunday Schcol cause,' and
have 'stooped so low es to censure and rid•
icule'—a charge which has no foundation
in truth;—‘those who are endeavoring to
instruct the young,' they are the Individu.
ale who are 'Costly resuming the principles
of the original American.' If 'Defendant'
had possessed the single virtue—truthful
ness, so characteristic a trait of original In
dian character, his communication would
never have found room for conception,
stil' Inns would it have been published to
the world. 'Last but not least,' he says,
'these young men Mist and undoubtedly
will take their places as teachers and pa
trons, &c ' One truth, but 've happened
to learn it some time ago, and we rejoice
it? the reflection 'hat when by infirmity,
age or dissolution, our seats are vacated in
the Sunday School, we have contributed
.an humble share in qualifying thrum who
shall succeed us, honorably to themselves
and profitiOly to the community, to fill our
places as officers, teachers and patrons, of
the Heaven born 5, S. Institution, and we
not only say but with our whole heart wish
them success. Does not reason, if he pos.
yeses that priceless gem, teach 'Defen
dant' that 'strips of boys,' or 'young men'
if such they ;verb, ahould not determine
within themselves to have $. S. celebra.
lions without consulting or asking the ad- the cottage, which I reached after wading
vice or assistance of the officers of the through the mud and mire, and sustaining
schools. Why does the anonymous wrt- , a combat with u poker that disputed my
ter make an unjust attack, and so uurea•
tunably avail those to whom he refers and
then call himself Delendant;' unless he be
the very identical 'opposed' strips of boys
who sustains and carries on the Sunday
School in the vicinity o( Murkleaburg.'
W by not schools, as there were a plurality?
Plaintiff or Assaulter would have been
a more appropriate signature, and be he,
they or their representative, they are tat
beating the wind, in fighting an imaginary
enemy. We think, however, that our S. l
S. boys have more respect for truth, than
to be the writers of such productions; arid
we are sorry that 'Defendant' did not in
his youthful days enjoy Ike advantages of
a Sunday School, or has no 'shamefully
failed to comprehend' or appropriate 'die
benefits of the S. S. cause,' and utterly
disregarded the moral truths there taught

To see an old hunter or trapper in his
Buckskin garb, armed with rifle knife and
tomahawk, is not a very unusual thing in
the city of St. Louis, for that town is the
headquarters of the North Western Fur
Company, and the names of the Chateau-
Aubrey's ; &c., are historically fixed there•
Some years ago L was sitting in the
reading room of the Virginia Hotel there,
conversing with a gentleman on business,
when an old man dressed and completely
armed as a hunter or trapper is when in
his accustomed wilds, entered and minute•
ly scanned the features of every one pres•
ent. He was evidently quite old, and very
thin, rind feeble, looking us if he had re•
cently risen from a couch of sickness.-
1(1. It's dark eye beamed brightly, even
fiercely, in its sunken socket, and his
erect term seemed to struggle against the
mortal darkness • which pervaded It.
The old man shook his Land as he fin
ished his gaze around tho room nod mut
tering in a low voice, "The cuss is not
here !" he turned away.
Flaying finished my business, I also left
and went to the Planter's [louse where I
boarded. IVlien I arrired, it lacked hut
a few minutes of dinner time and the
guests were gathering in the sitting room
whiting for a gong to sound. I had just
entered when the old hunter, who had bo
lore attract-id my attention also Caine in,
and as before commenced an inspection of
every countenance.
Suddenly his eye flashed with a fire
more 'him than 1 ever saw glow to hu
'man face before, and he strode up to a
young fellow who bore the name of being
the most daring hunter of the North• West
Company of which he was trading agent
when on the hunt, the most reckless gam
As he spoke, the oinnicious click of the
old ohm's rib was heard. Astonishe d
into silence the crowd drew to either side
whikt St. Vrain tearing his shirt bosom
open and said in a low hopeless lone :
, Tiro old non, I deserve it!'
The old Immo had scarce waitid for
the word, for before St. Vrain's last word
was spoken, the bullet from the old hun
ter's ride had passed through his heart.
He sunk a corpse to the floor murmuring
only one word 'Edele.'
The old man stood and gazed on the
body a moment then he muttered, 'lt is
right-1 have fired my last shot
In a moment he was seized—he made
no resistance—and hurried off to prison.
As I ryas then practising attorney in the
courts of that city, feeling a sympathy for
the old man, I offered my services. He
received ore calmly ;and kindly, but his
voice was very feeble, as he replied :
, It's little use you can du for me, sir, for
I have fired my lust shot, and tramped my
last tramp. But as you seem to be about
the only friend I've got around here I may
as well ease my mind and tell you why I
shot St. Frain. Two years ago, I would
have sooner shot myself than raise my
hand to harm a hair of his head. He a•ns
young, handsome, brave as ever drew
bead ou a grizzly's eye, I loved him.'
the old one's voice grow husky, his lip
quivered, he paused a moment and their
he went on:

heap the secret until it could no longer be
kept; they he fled from her, left her to bring
a babe into the world, and there to die bro
ken hearted, with it upon her bosom. Both
of them sleep in ono grave on the bank of
the Yellowstone. For a time I thought
I should have to lay down there too, before
I found him, but I care not for life now.'

One week afterwards, a few of us, who
had .oiscovcred is aim a brother of the
'mystic tie,' gave him honorable burial in

as quietly as if he had laid down by a pleas
