tO THE BOON'S LICK TIME.
' Behold the winter it fait.
The rain is over, is gone;
The flowers art tetn on the earth.
And the season of song it cornel"
' , . Solomon
ST L. It. RT7L0K. '
How tweet, bow balmy, breathe the morning air,
That sighs soft music thro' the virgin le aves,
Fraught with rich fragrance from the opening
The fairest, first-born daughter of tbe Spring!
Stern winter's reign is o'er. His clouds and
And magazines of hail, and chill log winds,
And hoary frosts, have done their work of death
And their last sullen footsteps, we tiiay trace,
In mouldering beau'y lovcl y now no more!
Thai like the gloomy rod-eyed Demon, war-
Leaves blcachingbonos , and ruins, dark and drear
Behind his bloody tread . The elements
Of dreary discord cease; and the dark days
And nights uf lengthen'd gloom, 'mid sunny cluudi
And Southern winds, have chang'd their dreary dis
And tojhis native clime, old winter's gone
To tell the Anarch of the polar rcalinus,
How wide he stretched his icy Empire round.
Old March, the hcrnld of the Spring, full long,
And loud, has wind ed his shrill horn; and lu!
Fast treading at his heels, the Nurse of flowers,
Fair April, with her buds, and gentle showers,
Ilor deep-lon'd 'thunders, and her golden clouds;
And her fair bow. bent by tbe Eternal hand!
And then, Wight May, the pride of Flora's reign,
Breathing sweet odours from ber sparkling flowers,
Auorns ner temples with pure virgin leaves;
And wreathes around her brow the corneous crown I
Of all Earth's loveliness . And all around,
n. i.:n i , '
v" u M-uaie, n uiruwauer vernal rooe,
low uiv ilU pinuta UlBt UVIIU9 UCUtra.111 lltjr U6W9,
To the proud forest-King, whose giant arms,
And mighty trunk have braved the warring shock
Of pelting st orms, thro' roiling centuries!
At this fair season, 0 what magic ray
IUuminines nature with a golden fire!
What beauteous grace, what architect'ral skill !
What prwer! What majesty and loveliness!
How calm, how bright , how beautiful the sky!
The deep blue canopy, how pure! haw fair!
A strange attraction lifts tho soul to eaven,
And on soft pinions, bears its vision up,
'Mid the unfathom'd waters of that sea,
Where beauty, light and pow'r,? and glory, shed
Their bright effulgence round the Deity.
Tho starry host glow with a melting fire,
And seem to smilo a soft and tender light,
As tho'.their eyes intelligent, saw not,
Or never read man's crimso n'd page, stain'd o'er,
With human blood, effiis'd by .human hands:
And Luna, pale-faced, darts her modest beams,
That full like silv'ry pearls on th) soft air ,
As gently as the Zephyr yields the dew
To tho sweetjkisscs of the blushing flower.
O what a strange mysterious thrill, shoots
It's soft fires thro' i.aven, thro'jearlh; and warms
Each heart, each pulse, each vein , in every limb
Of this vast universe! There's not a germ
Within the nursing bosom of old earth,
But feels this Heav'nly animating fire!
Not one, 'mong beings that do walk or creep,
That swim the briny deep with golden fins,
Or on exulting pinions , rove the air,
Or skim the ocean with a level wing,
But in a language that high eav'n lias taught,
Makes known the rapture of this new-born joy.
Nor these alone man, beast, bird, fish and flow'r,
Herbage and trees, that green the lap of Spring,
But nature inanimate, Instinct with life,
Through every pore, is quick with swarming hosts,
sublimely small diminutively great!
Beyond the reach of vision's potent glass
bull less ning down, 'till their dark awful source
Doth mingle with the atoms of infinity!
All these, in various ways, with voice, or mute,
Expressive gratitude and praise attune
To that August and Sempiternal power,
Whose breath reanimates the prostrate year!
0 what a burlesque to proud reason's name,
Is that blind rea son that denies a God,
While at the thresh old of the Eternal throne,
Her Eye pours o'er the page of Earth and 7eaven;
Whereon is writ, in flaming capitals,
Begirt with shining stars and burning suns,
The Supervision or a Deity!

It is highly recommended for open or ulcerated
Scrofula and Leprosy. No class of diseases have
ever been considered more difficult to cure than
those of a cutaneous kind, and it will be conceded
by all intelligent and candid physicians, that a
knowledge ot the nature and successful treatment
of them is very limited and imperfect It is notorious
that many of these disorders havo generally re
sisted all the ordinary means of cure. Hence the
opinion so commonly prevalent, that they are in
curable, and it is probable that before the discov
ery and introduction or Eeatson s justly celebra
ted remedy this belief was well founded. But
wherever lliis medicine hss been known and used,
it has shown this opinion to be erroneous it has
demonstrated the certainty of a radical cure in al
most every case. The proprietor, therefore, con
siders this ointment as a specific for the complaints
This is no "quack" remedy, but really a certnin

assertions can be verified by reference to the nu

Carrol's Corner Never Tire!
Just listen awhile, till I toll you the news,
Of Carrol's Cheap Corner beating the Jews,
For calicoes and coats it beats them all hollow,
And not alone them, but the B'hoys in hog-wallow.
But that's so well known, on it I'll not dwell,
So I will proceed with what they have to sell:
First comes the Calicoes, cheaper than all,
Of various patterns, both large and small,
Cassinetts, Janes, Domestics, brown and white;
Broad cloth and Cassimeres, to be seen in the light!
Hats, Caps, Boots and Shoes, of the very best grit
Coats, Pants and Vests, all warranted to fit,
Linsey and apron checks, with sundry other things!
Buttons, tape, pins, needles and fiddle strings;
No Muffs, Balzarines, nor Robes so soon rent,
No! none df those fancy doings at 300 per cent
But Sugar and CoffiJe, Leather, Iron and Nails,
And the best old Rye Whiskey to hoist up your sails,
Five per cent above proof, 15 above Breeze,
Warranted all rye and never to freeze!
Stone and tin ware, window glass, but no sash,
All of which they sell cheap, but mind you for cash
Glasgow, December 12th, 1840.
SAY, Tom, I guess them tarnal fools won't say
Carroll s corner am t in town any more now.
The Jews have moved up in their fine new store
and it looks like Bosting. Hugwallow and the
lower end of town, looks like way down in the
Hurricane among them gullies. The upper end of
town is the place for business and bargains. Wbat
Carroll's corner don't sell, the Jews giveaway
well, they don'tdoany tiling else.
Glasgow, November 14th, 1846.
SAY Smith, where did you buy that good Iron
you shod my horse with t other day At Car
roll's Corner, and no where else! What mnkes
his iron so much better than any other! Why
Carroll says it was sunk and laid in the river till
it got right suple and tough! He sells 1-2 cent
cheaper than any of the rest oi thern Hugoamon
ger in Glasgow. Well, he don't do nothing
snorter! liUisgow, Ueeeinber lath, f in
O roll's corner, they taste, of sugar, ond not of
honey as those at the drug store.
Glasgow, Nou 22d, 1846.
Mec how that Coat litis!
DTD you get that coat at Carroll's Corner?
Well, I didn't get it any where else. I tell
you, Boh, that is Martin's No. 2, and I recom
mend all the b'hoys to go there for nico fits and
cheap goods. (Glasgow, Nov 21st, 1840.
