G ENTS NEW STYLE CAPS,
Though clouds of sorrow lower,
Let not reproach find vent,
But midst the darkness and the gloom,
Learn thou to be content.
And with firm, unwavering faith,
1-lope's bright sunshine borrow;
And recollect though dark to-slay,
It may be fair to-morrow.
And give not way to vain regret,
It is no balm for woe ;
It cannot close the hidden spring,
From whence thy sorrow flow.
Forget not that afflictions deep
Are oft from heaven sent
By God, to teach unto his flock
A lesson of content.
Then in thy journey through this life,
If trials you should meet,
If sorrow's thorns are strewn along
Beneath your very feet ;
Look up, look up, above this earth,
To heaven's starry scope,
And pray that pure and steadfast faith
May warm your soul with hope.
Then bend thou not beneath the load,
Nor at thy lot repine ;
But let sweet faith around thy heart,
Her softening fetters twine.
Let holy feeling of content,
Repose within thy breast;
Murmur not at Heaven's decree;
And leave to God the rest.
On Bonaparte's first nomination to the
army of Italy, the Directory is said to
have been unable or unwilling to supply
him the money necessary for a journey
of himself and his aid•de-camp to the
spot and their suitable appearance at
the bead quarters of a considerable force.
In this emergency, after collecting all
that his resources, the contributions of
his friends, and his credit could muster,
he is reported to have applied to Junot,
a young officer whom he knew to be in
the habit of frequenting the gaming-ta
bles, and confiding to him all the money
he had been able to raise, no great sum,
to have directed him either to loose the
whole or increase it to a considerable
amount before morning, as on his suc
cess that night at play depended the pus
sibillity of his taking the command of
the arm, and appointing Junot aid-de
camp. Junot, after succeeding beyond
his expectations in wining to an amount
in his judgment equal to the exigencies
of his employer, hastened to inform Oen.
Bonaparte, but he was not satisfied ; and
resolved to try his fortune to the utmost,
bade his friend return, risk all he had
gained, and not to quit the table till he
had lost the last penny, or doubled the
sum he had brought back to him. In
this, also, after some fluctuation, the
chances favored him, and Napoleon set
out to his head-quarters, furnished with
sufficient to take up the command with
no little personal splendor and eclat.
The above anecdote was first related to
me by the Chevalier Serra, Ministers of
the Ligurian Republic at ➢Madrid, a man
of veracity, learning and discernment,
who was intimately acquainted with Na
poleon during his Italian campaigns.—
DEATH IN THE MERCATILE tIERARY.-
OH Friday afternoon, about 3 o'clock, as
Mr. Wm. A. Christman was sating at a
table in the second story room of the
Mercantile Library reading room, near
the Librarian's desk, he suddenly fell
back in his chair in a severe and danger
ous attack of illness. Assistance was
immediately rendered by the Librarian
and his assistants, and several physici
ans happening to be about, rendered
medical assistance, but all iu vain. Mr.
Christman lived but about fifteen min - -
utes after the first attack. When first
examined his pulse had apparently ceas
ed. A few minutes after he had been
laid out on the floor dead, his wife en
tered the library, where he had been
waiting to meet her, in order that they
might go together to visit the Academy
of Natural Sciences. The decease resi
ded in Franklin street, above Brown,
and is supposed to have died of heart
disease. A few days ago, while playing
chess at one of the tablas in the third
story of the Mercantile Library, he was
suddenly attacked, and was seriously ill
for a; short time, bat recovered and went
OD with his play. Be was about thirty
six years of age. The -event created a
great excitement in the library, happen
ing just about the time when the heavy
influx of lady visitors usually conimences
every day.—Philadelphia North Anier

THE HEART.—Let any one, while sit
ting down, place the left leg over the
knee of the right one, and permit it to
hang freely, abandoning all mascular
power over it. Speedily it may be ob
served to sway forward and back through
a limited space at regular intervals.—
Counting the number of those motions
for any given time, they will be found to
agree exactly with the beatings of the
pulse. Every one knows, that at a fire,
when the water from the engine is forced
through bent hose, the tendency is to
straighten the hose ; and if the bend be
a sharp one, considerable force is neces
sary to overcome the tendency. Just so
it is in the case of the human body. The
arteries are but a system of hose through
which the blood is forced by the heart.
When the leg is bent, all the arteries
within it are bent, too, and every time
the heart contracts, the blood rushing
through the arteries tends to straighten
them; and it is the effort which produ
ces the motion of the leg alluded to.—
Without such occular demonstration, it
is difficult to conceive the power exerted
by that exquisite mechanism, the normal
pulsations of which are never perceived
by him whose very life they are.
LEAVING Homs.—We can conceive of
no picture more interesting than one
which might be drawn from a young man
leaving his home, the scene of all his
earthly associations, to try his fortune in
a distant country, setting oat alone for
the "forest." A father on the decline,
the downhill of life, gives his parting
blessing, involing the best gifts of Heav
en to rest on his beloved offspring, to
down all his effort with complete suc
cess ; tears gush from his eyes, and words
are forbid utterance. A kind, most af
fectionate mother, calling after him as he
is departing from the parental abode
and with all the dangers to which he is
to be exposed rushing into and pres
sing upon her mind, she says, "Go my
son 7 -remember there is a right and a
wrong way." Her advice is brief. Lan
guage is inadequate to the expression of
the feelings that then crowd on the mind
of a virtuous child. Every reader has a
case of this kind, and may have been the
subject of one in some respects similar.
Here may be found eloquence more
touching to whom it is delivered than
even the orations of Cicero or Demos
WIDOW LIFE IN INDIA.- The very day
a girl becomes a widow, her colored
clothes, silver and golden ornaments, are
all taken off. Henceforth she has to
dress in white, and wear no ornament of
any.,,kind whatever during her lifetime.
Her daily meals are reduced to one, and
that is prepared in the simplest way pos
sible. She is strictly prohibited the use
of any sort of animal food. Each widow
is required to cook her own food, and to
abstain entirely from food and drink two
days in every month. On the fast days,
when the burning sun dries up the
ponds and scorches the leaves of the
trees, these poor victims faint and pant
in hunger and thirst. If they are dying
on the aku thusty day, a little water will
be put on the lips merely to Wet them.
They have no hope of ever cheering their
widow-hood in the world. A. learned
Brahmin, the principal of Calcutta San.
serit College, is earnestly engaged in re
deeming the condition of the widows, by
introducing the system of marriage.
A "STAR" ACTRESS Suss.—Mrs. Lucy
Ann McMahon, who several years ago
acquired much notoriety in the theatri
cal world by her petulant attempts to
convince the incredulous public of her
surpassing histrionic abilities, recovered
$2OO with interest, last week, from John
Bates. manager of the National Theat're,
Cincinnati, for breach of contract. The
defence set up was that Mrs. McMahon
was not a competent actress, and that
the manager was misled by newspaper
criticisms sent to him by the actress—an
assertion which the latter denied. In
support of the manager's theory a num
ber of theatrical performers were called,
and generally testified that she was the
worst star she ever saw. The plaintiff
rebutted this disparagement of her pro
fessional excellence by the depositions
of a number of New York lawyers, mer
chants and dramatic amateurs, who spoke
in high terms of her acting. One of the
witnesses in the case, Mr. Shires, testi
fied that the lady could nial*rtssplendid
stump speech, and that of itself should
attract full houses.
air A league has been formed be
tween the large buildipf firms in London,
to avoid any fature stiti . ps on the nine
hours' labor question ; they will pay all
their employees at per hour., and not at
per day, as heretofore.
A TEXT FROM SIR ARMEE COOPER.—
"A stomach, gentlemen," says Sir Astley
Cooper, in one of his lectures, "has been
compared to a laboratory, and to a kitch
en, but, gentlemen, it is a stomach, and
like nothing but a stomach." The great
Burgeon was right. Digestioa and as
similation resemble no other process in
nature or art. It was with a vivid ap-
preciation of this fact that the distil]-
, guished Holloway originated his system
of treatment. His Pills which have be
come the popular specifics of the age,
act directly upon this controlling organ,
and through it upon all its dependencies.
Dyspepsia, a terrible disease in itself,
and the primal source of as many evils
as were contained. in Pandora's box,
yields rapidly and certainly to their ape
rient, anti-septic and restorative proper
ties. Unlike any other medicament in
use, they seem to carry on the three pro
cesses of purgation, disinfection and in
vigoration simultaneously; so that the
system is regulated, the blood purified,
and the nervous and muscular organiza
tion renovated at the 'sawe time. Hence
their almost miraculous cures of nearly
all internal diseases. Their popularity,
and that of the Ointment for 'external
complaints and injuries, is simply the
homage of the world to Truth. Men,
women and children, upon whom the dis
ciples of a musty, utiphilosophical, and
vapid pathology have pronounced sen
tence of death, recover by the use of
these medicines, and shame the oracles
of the profession by taking a new lease
of life. These are results that all man
kind can appreciate. .No interested op
position can withstand them. The old
Phartracopmia, the old practice of phys
ic, (venerable lumber!) are being 'swept
away by the new regime. Holloway's
Pills and Ointment are supplanting
them in all parts of the globe.—N. Y.
Nat. Pol. Gazelle.
A CURIOUS LEGAL PROGEEDING.—The
Supreme Court, now in session in Phila
delphia, had a few days since before it a
most singular and curious case. A citi
zen of Luzerne county, named Elisha
Harris, died some time ago, leaving a
large farm but no money. At the sale
of his personal effects, David Hutelima
cher purchased an old article of furni
ture—giving fifteen cents for it. It was
afterwards Concluded to split it up for
kindling wood, in doing which the owner
discovered a concealed deposit, amount
ing to $3,754, in specie and notes. He
immediately notified the admiriistrator
of the discovery, and the result was a
suit to determine the rightful ownership
of the money. The Luzerne court deci
ded in favor of the administrator, from
which the finder appealed to the Su
preme Court. The Supreme Court has,
