I do this more readily in regard to Hoofland's

because I was prejudieed against them for a
number of years, under the impression that
tht.y were (Wray au alcoholic, mixture. lam
indebted to my friend Ilob't' Shoemaker, esq.,
for the removal of this prejudice by proper
tests, and for encouragement to try them, when
suffering from great and long debility. The
use of three bottled of these bitters, at the be
ginning of the present year, was followed by
evident relief, and restoration to a degree of
bodily and mental vigor which I had not felt
for alx Months before,
and had almost dispair
ed of regaining. I therefore thank God and
my friend for directing rue to the use of them.

THE 'WORLD IS FULL OF BEAUTY.
There is beauty in the forest,
Where the trees are,green and fair,
There is beauty in the meadow,
Where wild dowers scent the air,
There is beauty in the sunlight,
And the soft blue beam above ;
0 ! the world is full of beauty,
When the heart is full of love.
There is beauty-in the fountain,
, Singing gaily at its play,
While the rainbow hues are streaming
On its silvery shining spray ;
There is beauty in the stieamlet,
Murm'ring softly Oro' the grove;
0 1 the world is full of beauty,
When the heart is full of love.
There is beauty in the brightness
Beaming from a loving eye;
In the warm blush of affection,
In the tear of sympathy.
lu the sweet low voice whose accents
The spirit's gladness prove ;
0! the world is full of beauty,
When the heart is full of love.
Chide mildly the erring,
Kind language endears,
Grief follows the sinful,
Add not to their tears ;
Avoid with reproaches
Fresh pain to bestow,
The heart which is stricken
Needs never a blow.
Chide mildly the erring,
Jeer not at their` fall,
if strength be but human,
How weekly were all !
What marvel that footsteps
Should wander astray,
When tempests BO Bbado*
Life's wearisome way.
Ohide mildly the erring,
Entreat them with care,
Their natures are mortal,
They need not despair.
We all have some frailty,
We all are unwise,
The grace which redeems us,
Must come from the skies.
WHAT IS CONSCIENCE.—When a little
boy, my father sent me from the field
home. A spotted tortoise 'in shallow
water. caught my attention, and I lifted
my stick to strike it when a voice within
me said "it is wrong." I stood with
uplifted stick, in wonder at the new
emotion, till the tortoise vanished from
my sight into deeper water.
1 hastened home and asked my mother
what it was that told me it was wrong.
Taking me in her arms, she said—
"some men call it conscience, but I
prefer to call it the voice of God in the
soul of man. If you listen to and obey
it, then it will speak clearer, and guide
you right. But if you turn a deaf ear,
or disobey, then it will fade out little
by little, and leave you in the dark
without a guide."
Er Which was the : property? was a
question very neatly= settled the other
day by Daniel Drew, the great steamboat
proprietor of Gotham. Daniel, although
a. man, of immense wealth, is an old
fashioned. Methodist, and dresses very
plainly. at all times, and sometimes
rather shfibbily. Being on one of his
steamers, not long since, he was accost
ed by ft, passenger, who took him for
one of the crew, with the interrogatory :
"Do you be)ong to
,this boat ?" "No,"
said Daniel, quietly, "this•boat belongs
to me !"

Pepper's Uhost in Meng%
Professor Pepper's ghost has been
eclipsed in Chicago. An individual in
the rural districts stepped into a, store
on. Lake Street, a few days ago, and
while making some purchases, cast his
eyes down along the long line of shelv
ing and counters, remarking to a clerk :
"Mighty long siore this is, from one
end to t'other."
The clerk nodded assent, and the eye
of the countryman fell upon his own re,
flection in a large mirror at the further
end of the store.
"There's my.brother out there in that
'ere alley, sure's yoirlive, and I hain't
seed him afore in three years. Row
can I get back there ?"
The clerk told . him he would have to
go out on Lake street. around the corner
and into the alley. It should be re
marked that the clerk did not see the
joke, really supposing that the country
man had seen his brother through a rear
window. Rural went out, and after an
hour's search, returned and announced
that his brother had "gin him the slip."
Looking• down the stbre again, he ek
claimed, "I'll be darned if brother John
ain't there again," and down he paddled
toward the mirror. As he neared it,
. ; his reflection cordially re
turned it, and advanced to meet him.—
Rural extended his hand, and the re
flection extended its hand. Just at
that instant Rural's hand came in con
tact with the cold glass . ; he started
back, rubbed his eyes, took a second
look,and' saw it. He rushed from the
store sWearliag that he and his brother
John were twins, and couldn't tell one
another apart, and the durned lookin'
glass had smelled him in.

And so on the letter was filled up
with home gossip. I read it at the lit
