Beting satiated with tae ordinary com-
mou-place things of every day life, aud
tavuig heard a great deal about the mys
terious communications -telegraphed to
this, our ig'upraut sphere, by .wisa and
benignant spirits of bliss'i throuurh the
diguiiied medium of old chairs, wash'
stands and card tables, we three ( who
ad met again.) determined to put our
selves lu communication with the next
world, to find out, if possible, our chan
ces of - a favorable rccep.tiou when busi
ness or pleasure calls us in that direc
tion. " . Up Broad way till we came to an
illuminated three cornered transparency,
(which made Bull Dogge smack his lips
and say J oysters," which iuformed us
that vtltlun a large assortment of spirits

two peaked nosed old maids a good look
ing widow, with a little boy, our own sa
cred trio, and the" " medium," composed
the whole of the assembled multitude.
The " medium ". aforesaid, was a vineear
comple'xioned women,' very ruby nose,
mouth the exact shape of the sound hole
to a violin, who wore green spectacles,
and petticoats of equivocal purity. .
Tie furniture consisted of several
chairs, a mirror, no carpet, a small stand,
a large "dining table, and in one' corner
of the room a bedstead, washstand, and
bookcase, with writing desk on top.
After some remarks by the medium, we
formed the magic circle, by sitting close
together, and putting our hands on the
table. Bull Dogge took a big drink be
fore he laid his ponderous fists ' by the
side of the others.7 After a short length
of time the table began to shake its
ricketty legs, to flap its leaves after the
mauner of wings, and to utter ominons
'squeaks from its crazy bid joints. Pret

hand; he trembled and turned pale,-but
on the ' whole, stood bis ground . like a

vicinity looked under the ' table, but

out for his father to come and talk to
him (when the old gentleman was alive.
he was; " one of ;'em ," ) on demand, the
father came; interesting convereation-r-old
man in trouble lost all' bis mocy
betting oh 'a horse-race, and had just
pawned his coat and a spare shirt to get
money tot-set himself up in business
again, as a pop-corn merchant (Damp
hool sunk down exhausted, and borrow

Damphool's attention to the bottle
has re-assured his spirits, (he is easily
affected by brandy one glass makes
him want to treat all his friends, when
he has two bumpers in him he owns' a
great deal of real estate, and glass No.

torn House,) and he now ventures anoth

up, by telling him as soon as he gets so
ber enough to tell Maiden Lane from a

. To thosd who are complaining of : the
severity pf'the times,' we address this
inquiry Why don't -you advertise'?
It is just the thing to help you out of
your difficulties to relieve you from
existing embarrassments t-to, save you.
JLhero is no mistake about it, aud the
demonstrations which have been made
within your own observations," within the
last seven years, by those who have, ad
vertised extensively, yrove the. fact that
advertising is the sure road to fortune,
Do you say you have not the' means to
meet the expense, and cannot afford to
do it?-- You cannot afford not1 to do it:
inere is a umcuity. . it. you have, not
the means, makehaste.to get them send
a lot of musty goods to ouction or try
- - V - i ... ' .a : , " ' ,
juur creuii, Aour uicreasea saies and
additional prohts 'Will ensure you not
only to . pay your advertising -bills,- but
save you from destruction, and inspire
connuence in your creditors and the pub
lic. But should this expectation not bo
fully realized, you can hardly be worse
off than you uow are. " Nothihsr risk:
nothing wun?'.' .', Yoa know that largefor
tunes have been '"made bv1 advertisincr-r-
and you also know that no man ever ad
vertised extensively and thoroughly that
did not succeed Those who are doinc
buisiness must advertise or fail !' ' ' 1
It is true that advertising may not
save all who- are enibarressedy for thete
are some whom even advertising, how
ever potent" cannot now save ; but.it will
save many all who 'are not hopelessly
msolvent-it ivill B-.vef hundreds who
aro doomed to certain failure without it.
There is no sense iu standing- Jdte-'-no'
sense in brooding over existing ills the
true way'is to commence a war . upon
them and do" it through the "means and
agency of the prese, wich is traly'a-ad
emphatically v the , mighty lever . i)f : the
business world," and yoti ; know; it. Ad
vertising is the grand- remedy. " Cast
your bread upon the waters " and' in,' a
short time it shall return to you again.
We ask no man to advertise for-the sake
of the presB, but , fbra his own- sake to
save himself ffom, bankruptcy, . and . his
family from penury aod'want. '' '
many of our business' insa appenr to'
be paralyzed ; iher are panic strnck'and
trembling ; in :-theii:, shoes,-;. .Thoy -s are
wondering .what ia to become of them in
stead of laying hold of.the lever which
alone caii save them ruin : stares ' them
in the face !" To all such we say; adver
tise advertise at once: let it be the
first thing you do, . If you ! are Atoa lfar.
gone it may not save you,. j.It .ia in, fact,
the only thing you can do and hope to
weather the storm. ' Then' be about it
at once: the:; engine "can"' be 'set' in
motion. The experiment is worth try
ing, is it not l jit is the laift-chance of
the buisiness -men who , are. iu .distress
for more and! better customers. "-' TT"Ay
should any one hesitate to resort td it ?

Dr. Mackensie tells with . great good
humor an . anecdote ;in , the New York
Union, which' we before heard verbally
related. ' It is all about a certain Lady
Middleton, who 'contrary to her -most
anxious wish,, was .unblessed with iany
children. After art absence of : several
sears with her liege , lord, in England,
she returned with him to reside for a
time on one of their Irish estates.1
As the carriage drove up to the 'man-,'
sion, she, -noticed : several- hne . looking
children about the gate, , and having
learned that their mother was the . wife
of the gate porter, '-she 'determined to
interrogate her relative to the cause of
her fecundity -1 she i therefore made her
way, next day, down to the porter's lodgei
and commenced her inquiries :
"Whose children are .these good wo
man i"
;''-:"AIV my own, my good lady." ' :' -: '
'JiWhat Ittree infants of the same age!"
'Yes, my lady, I. had,, three ; the ilast

.' "Three years, your la"dyshpv'T;''','

' &", -my lady,'! ! -i5:-f ;ii
.,:At last came the. question of question
how she came to have, the, children ?
The poor, woman,' not welt knowing what
the catechism' meant and not well know
ing how to wrapi;up - in ' delicate ""words
her: idea of cause and effect, blushed aud
grew, confused, aud at last, for want .of
something better to say, replied :
" I think it 'must be the potatoes, my
iadyV' -"" t---"' '- ii t c.'52 i v. .
This unfolded a -theory of population
quite, new te Lady Middleton, who eager
ly demanded---, .. j , .
" 1 he potatoes. r Did you. eat much
of them." . ' -' i i
" Oh, yes lady; Tory seldom' ive -have
bread and so we take potatoes all the
year round.".,! .: . . , -.-,.,;.., ,,,. ,

" And where do you' get the potates."
