LIFE PILLS & PH (EN IX BITTERS
THESE MEDICINES have now been before
the public for a period of thirty years, and
during that time haVe maintained a high char
iieter in almost every part of the Globe, for
their extraordinary and immediate power of
restoring perfect health to persons suffering
under nearly every kind of diseaie to which
the human frame is liable.
The following are among the distressing va•
rietY of human diseases in which the
VEGETABLE LIEN M.E.GICINES
Are well known to be infallible
DYSPEPSIA, by thoroughly aeansing the
first 'and second stomachs, and treating allow
of pure, healthy bile, instead of the stale and
Rea kind ; FLATULENCY, ` Loss of Appe
tite, Heartburn, Headache; Restlessness; 11l-
Temper, Anxiety, Languor, and Melancholy,
whicliare the`general symptom's of DysOpsia,
will vanish, as a 'natural consequence of its
COS . T.IVENESS, by cleansing the whole
leiithh of the intestines with a solvent process,
and with Out violence ; all violent purges leave
the bowels costive within two days.
FEVERS of all kinds, by restoring the blood
to a regular circulation, through the process of
prespiration in such cases, and the thorough
solution of all intestinal obstruction in 'others.
The Life Medicines have been known to cure
RHEUMATISM permanently in three weeks,
and GOUT in half that time, by reinoving lo
cal inflammation from the muscles and lige-.
ments of the joints.
DROPSIES of all kinds, by freeing and
strengthening the kidneys and bladder;they
operate most delightfully On these important
organs, and hence have ever been found a:cer
tain remedy for the 'cellist cases of GRAVEL.
Also WORMS, by dislodging from the turn
ings of the bowels the slimy matter to which
these creatures adhere.
• SCURVY, ULCERS; and INVETERATE
SORES, by the perfect purity which these Life
Medicines give to the blood, and all the humors.
SCORBUTIC! ERUPTIONS and Bad Com
plexions, by their alterative effect upon tha
fluids that feed the skin, and the morbid state
of which occasions all eruptive complaints,
sallow, cloudy, and other disagreeable coin•
The-use of these Pills for a very short time
will effect an entire cure of SALT RHEUM,
and a striking improvement in the clearness of
the skin• COMMON COLDS and INFLU
ENZA will always be cured by one dose, orby
two in the worst cases.
PILES.—The original proprietoi of these
Medicines, was cured of Piles, of 35 years
standing by the use of the Life Medicines alone.
- FEVER AND AGUE.—For this scourge of
the Western country, these Medicines will be
found a safe, speedy, and certain remedy.—
Other-medicines have the sysiem subject to a
return of the disease—a cure by these Medi
cines is permanent—try them, be satisfied, and
BILIOUS FEVERS AND LIVER COM
PLAINTS.--General Debility, Loss of Appe
tite, and Diseases of Females—the Medicines
have been used with the Most beneficial results
in cases of this description :Kings Evil, and
Scrofula, in its worst forms, yields to the mild
set powerful action of-these remarkable Med
icines. Night Sweats, .Nervous Debility, Ner-
Vous Complaints of all kinds, Palpitation of
the Heart, Painters' Colic, are speedily cured.
lIIERCURIAL DISEASES.—Pcrsons whose
constitutions have beeome impaired by the in
juiicious use of Mercury, will find these Med
icines a perfect cure, as they never fail to erad
icate from the system, all the effects of I.Yled
cury, infinitely sooner than the'most powerful
preparations of Sarsap 'rills. Prepared and

When Columbia, the child of a da ,
Bore her banner, all covered with ory,
Wherever the tyrant held sway! [er,
, Isieath the stars and the stripes se: \ them gath-
From the mountain, the plain, and the sea,
And their shouts rent the blue vaults of ether,
die on the field or are free !
Chorns:—" We die on the field or are free,
We die on the field or are : free,
And their shouts rent the blue vaults of ether,
We die on the field or are free !
The memory be cherished forever,
Of the martyrs who fell en the field, [er
Who swore that their heart-strings should sev-
Ere to Tyranny's mandates they'd yield,
Oh ! sacred the spot where they perished,
And green may their graves ever be,
And age after age shall be cherished
That flag that caved over the free !
The heroes have gone to their slumber,
And silent and peaceful they lie ;
While the stars, sliil increasing in number,
Like a wave seem to miiror the sky—
And-high over the land, and on ocean,
In vict'ry it streams far and wide,
Till our ]marts seem to burst with emotion,
As we gaze on the banner with pride.
Whcre'er dash the wild waves of ocean,
Wherever its dark waters divide,
Where the storm bird fortellsits commotion,
There floats out our banner in pride—
On mountain top, plain or in valley,
Wherever a footstep may be,
The hosts of Columbia cloth rally,
And shout for the flag of the free !
Oh brethren, say, SAY, 'would ye sever,
The bond once cemented in gore?
Would ye share that proud banner? Oh never!
Till Time and its trials are o'er,.
Beneath its broad folds—and xo other—
When discord and madness shall flee,
Let us rally, each man as a brother,
And shout for the Flag of the Free!
BANK. BILL PASSED.—The Senate pass
ed Ole bill which had been reported from
the Committee on Banks, removing the
penalties incurred by a suspension of
specie payments, and requiring all banks
to resume on or before the first day of
June next, and to pay into the State
Treasury one-quarter per cent. upon their
Capitol stock as a punishment for their
violation of the law. These provisions
are only applicable to such banks as sus
pended since last November. As quite
a number of banks deny that_ they ever
suspended specie payments, a provision
was inserted in the act whereby the Au
ditor General will be enabled to ascer
tain the facts in those cases where it is
suspected that banks seek to evade the
payment of the special tax upon their
capital stock upon the allegation that
they never suspended.
ENFORCE THE. BIRD LAWS.—The Legis
latures of several States 'have enacted
stringent game laws for the protection
of animals, birds, and fish, and it becomes
farmers particularly.to see that they are
strictly enforced, as far as pertains to
birds. Scientific men of high authority
very generally agree that the alarming
increase of destructive insects, which
cause the loss of so much giain and fruit,
is mainly in consequence of the whole
sale slaughter of their natural enemies,
the birds, that had previously kept them
in due bounds. Let every cultivator
post conspicuous notices upon his farm,
forbidding all persons to enter the fields
with a gun, under penalty for tresspass.
This may be done, and the offenders
punished, where.no game laws exist.—
Let, every bird murderer be dealt with
eir The Norfolk Day Book says: "A
gentleman an Ferry Point, some time
back bet a twenty-five dollar over coat
that he could swallow a mouse ; the bet
was accepted, the mouse produced, and
down it went, in a style that would have
shamed a Chinaman and done credit to
a Chinese juggler. The loser then offer
ed to bet $lOO that mouse-swallower
could not swallow a cat, but the bet was
declined. The swallowing of the mouse
is as true as it is strange."

night at Lynchburg to avoid. personal

LOVE, JEALOUSY AND RUI
There have lately been develop
Buffalo the particulars of one of
saddest histories of love and suffer
which haS ever come under our noti
The story is briefly as follows: 11
A young lady, resident of the south
Western portion of New York State, be.
came betrothed to a young villager.
The engagement had lasted through two
years of unbroken affection when a new
visitor to the place,--a middle aged man
—agent of an eastern agricultural firm,
became introduced to the lady, and won
her esteem by his dignified and intelli
gent conversation so as to finally become
acknowledged as a permanture acquain
tance. His attentions became disagree
able to the lover of the lady, who re
quested her to discourage them, which
she mildly, though firmly refused to do,
adducing the superior age and courteous
deportment of the stranger as her exL
case. Finally, the young man, meeting
his mistress in a carriage with the agent,
asked her to alight and walk with him,
a discourtesy to her present cavalier
which.she would not submit to, and pro
ceeded on her ride.
The young man, in a fit of disappoint
ment and desperation, returned home,
accumulated a few necessaries, and left
the same day for Buffalo, vowing never
to return. In the meantime his be
trothed, hearing of his absence, on her
return, was almost maddened by regret
and remorse. On the . same night she
fled from, her home, and followed the
tract of her lover.—She reached the city
on the ensuing morning, almost destitute
of means, ignorant of her course, and
without a single , acquaintance in the
river of faces which surged on every
side. She spent—poor, tender hearted,
persevering soul—nearly three days in
constant but hopeless pursuit of her lost
idol, wandering in her search through the
streets, into offices, and even extending
her simple, fruitless inquiries to the
doors of dwelling.houses; never finding
a single trace of him she sought, per
severiug.even in despair. The end of
all this was terrible. She was ensnared
by the -111m1storm that has drawn so
many waifs like her into its awful vor
tex, and lost, like her myriad sisters, in
its depths. Her parents in time search
ed for their love as she had searched for
hers, found her in helpless wickedness,
and took her back, and home. And
this, very lately. A letter had come
to the village soon after she left, from
her lover, saying that he had gone west
from Ruffalo; which accounts for all.
He knows the sequel now, reproaches
himself for all, but will not, dare not, as
he says, though he loves her still, go
back to gaze upon the ruin which lie as
cribes to his own wild temper. -
A SKELETON STORY.—There is a very
strange story current in Kittaning just
now, in which it. is related that a farmer
named Books, residing in one of the ad
jacent townships, has become suddenly
rich through the discovery certain buried
treasure, with the existence of which he
became acquainted in the following sin
gular manner. While digging a hole for
a fence post one day, he struck upon a
hollow substance ; which he afterward
discovered to be the skull of a human
being. being a gentleman of weak nerve,
the sight at first a4aled him, but re
suming his labor he succeeded in digging
out the entire skull, beneath which he
found a brass kettle containing some
beads and other relics, and also a small
box, within, which he found a paper on
which were words written in the French
language. This writing he afterwards
took to Freeport, and had it translated
by the - Catholic priest then residing
there. It stated arnbOg . other things
that the deceased fortneclY - resided it Le
Bre-if, in Erie county; and that certain
treasures .of which. he was . poisessed
were buried at a particular place in that
loca.lity. Shortly after this, Mr. !leeks
absented himself from his family, and
was not heard of inlatemeighborhood for
some time. EloweVer, - - one pleasant
morning he returned, enjoying the very
best health, and has ever since been in
the enjoyment of such quantities of mon
ey as to lead his neighbors to infer that
: availed himself of the information
conveyed by the mysterious writing, and
has become poss.essed•nf the wealth of
the defuncl Fkoithan. *The story is
related by a gentlem a n of undoubted
veracity, who-is ,acquainted with Mr.
Ilooks and his circumstances, and avers
that the facts are _substantially true as

HONOR TO GREAT - MEN'S RELATIVES.—
A paragraph has been going the rounds
of the papers stating that a sister of
Robert Fulton was an inmate of the
poor-house of a town in Pennsylvania.
Upon seeing this, Mr. Chas. F. Morton,
of Mortonville, New York, whose father
had been an intimate friend of Fulton's,
wrote to the place named, requesting in
formation, with a view to the immediate
raising of a fund for the' relief of any such
relative. Mr. Morton sends us the fol
lowing copy of the spirited reply :
STROUDSBURG, Monroe CO., Pa.,
August 30th, 1859.
"DEAR SIR : Yours of the 23d inst.,
directed to the superintendent of the
Monroe county poor-house, Pennsylva
nia, is received. There is a mistake in
the printer somewhere. We have no
'poor-house' in Monroe county, conse
quently we have no superintendent of
such an institution. Our postmaster
handed the letter to me, and requested
me to answer it. •
"1 recollect reading the same intelli
gence in some paper a few days ago, and
I think it was in Monroe county, Virgin
ia-=the printer may have taken 'Va.' for
'Pa.' There is no person by the name
of Fulton in our county, and I assure
you that if there were (within the limits
of our county) a sister to the immortal
Fulton, she never would become an in
mate of a poor-house ! She would be
taken into one of our best families, and
treated as a sister.
Respectfully yours, M. H. DREHER

This is a creditable expression of Penn
sylvania spirit, and it accords well with
what we read of the feeling of the
Quaker State in a recent paper. It ran

QUIT THAT. Quit what? Quit tel
ling your 'innocent, confiding, trembling
children about ghosts and hobgoblins.
You are throwing a sorrow upon young
hearts that will, cling there through life.
How many mothers there are who quiet
their children by saying, "The bugaboos
will come and ,take you off—come old
niggar—come ia, will you hush up this
minute ?" The poor child belives all
its mother tells it, and why shouldn't it?
It ought to belive. That is its filial
duty. The sobing, fluttering heart is
gaited, but not comforted. Those tear
fuleyes close in a sleep of terror; a
weary, broken rest follows; the child
dreams, but oh, who can tell the sadness
of a child while it dreams in a sleep
frightened upon it by alarms of all that
is terrible and repulsive. Sucb inhu
man treatment endangers the mind—the
intellect. Mothers, beware! See that
no servant or nurse, or older brother or
sister drives arrows of grief to the very
soul of your child. A sorrow early
planted and watered by fears will bring
forth a harvest of bitterness and despair.
How common it is to teach children to
fear unseen dangers at nightfall! The
peaceful night, so full of sweetness, and
night that brings the honeyed drops of
dew, to bless the Bowers and refresh the
leaves, the night that brings rest to the
weary, this dearest time. of all is to be
made terrible to children. What
wickedness? Why,, it is blasphemy to
make little ones belive that God forgets
them, and sends tormentors to trouble
them in the silent watches of the night.
Parents, think of this, see that yours
hear no ghostly lessons. See that they
are taught' to love.the ever present Sa
viour, and honor his ever blessed name.
How heavenly the teachings of that fa
milar hymn, when breathed from a true
mother's soul over a sleeping child:
"Hush, my babe, lie still and slumber,
Holy angly guard thy bed!"
