A Legal Ballad.
BY J. G. SAXE.
An attorney was 'taking n turn,'
In slmliby habiliments dressed;
His coat was shockingly worn,
And the rust had invested his vest.
His breeches hail Buffered a breach,
His linen and worsted were worse;
He had scarce a whole crown to his hat,
And not half a crown in his purse.
And thus, lie wandered along,
A cheerless and comfortless elf,
He sought for relief in a song, t
Or coiniihiiningly talked to himself.
"Most unfoitunate man that I am,
My only client is grief;
Tlio cnso is, I've no case at all,
And in brief, I have ne'er had a 'brief.'
"The profession's already so full
Of lawyers so full of profession, .
Thai a modest young man like myself
Can't make the smallest impression.
"They grant I'm acquainted with grants,
Can devise a 'devise,' or a plea, .
Can make u good deed in 'fee simple,'
But I cnu't get the simplest 'fee."
"I've waited, ami waited in vain;
Expected an opening to find,
Where an honest young lawyer might yain
Some reward for the toil of his mind."
While he ihus wandered along,
His eye accidentally fell
On a very deep hole in the ground,
And he sighed to himself, 'It is well!'
To curb his emotion, he sat
On the curb stone, the space of a minute,
Then cried, 'Here's an opening at last !'
And in less than a jiffy was in it.
t
Next day twelve citizens came,
The 'coroner's' inquest to attend;
To the end that it might be determined
How that man had determined hi! end.
'The man was a lawyer, it soenis,"
Said the foreman, who opened of course;
"A lawyer! alas!" sighed another,
"He undoubtedly died of remorse.'"
A third said "he knew the deceased
An attorney, well versed in the laws;
And as to the cause of his death,
Twas no doubt for want of a 'cause.'"
The 'crowners' at length gave a verdict,
Which finally settled the matter;
"That the voiinir man was ilrown-ded, be
cause
He could -not keep his head above water

THE STRAW HAT;
OR
THE FRUIT OF BENEVOLENCE.
In one of the morning papers, not long since
there appeared the following singular advertise
men!.
" A lady is desirous of obtaining for a short timi
the sum of one thousand dollars. Any gentleman
who Would be willing to advance this sum without
security, will oblige the advertiser liy addressin
L. L. M., through tho post office. Circumstances
of nn extraordinary and peculiar nature have coin
pellcd the advertiser to resort to tins step."
This advertisement created no little sensation a
tnoug the monied bachelors with generous temper
aments. Manv a confirmed Cielelies began to thin
of bright eves and matrimony. That the adverti
rer was young and pretty, there could be no doubt
thought they all. tor wlint plain lady would pie
some to ask such a preposterous favor of a man as
one thousand dollars without security! i'retty la
dies a handsome widow, for instance might do
it, but no one else !
No one was more profnunlly moved by this ad
vertisement than Neal Nclvilie, Esq., though not
exactly in the same way and from the same mo
tives. This gentleman was a bachrlur of forty;
well preserved, and without a grey hair; for eve--
vy morning he carefully extracted sueli untimely
intruccrs from his dark brown locks and silky
whiskers with a pair of tweezois. Ho was a man
of cheerful temper, and his face, therefore, had
few wrinkles. He might have been taken for no
more (Jian. two and thirty. His person was well
roadafml compact, somewhat tall, and inclined,
the least in the world, to corpulency. He was
handsome that is, 'the ladies called him so with
a clear, florid complexion, fine teeth, and an agree
able smile and voice. He was a lawyer by pro
fession, but having inherited from an aunt a good
fortune,he gave himself little trouble about briefs
and fees, constitutionally -u lover of ease, and a
great pattern of indolence, lounjiers, and eimirs.
His ""sign,'" nevertheless, kept its place among the belter and happier.
very luxuriously, and that his rooms were in every
especi wen appoinieu. mirrors aim soias, a vei-
et ui van, and voluptuous easy ctiairs on roeKers,
were but part of the means assembled to make him
comfortable, and yet he never felt at home. There
was something wanting, and his conscience told
him it was a wife. He would lay late of morn
ings, read newspapers an hour over his coffee, lin
ger long at his dinner, and plunge into every vari-
ty of amusemens in the afternoon and evening,
to keep from feeling the loneliness of his bachelor
chambers. He never liked to be in them unless
he had a friend; and when that friend got up to
sro, ho would take his hat to go with him! He felt
the need of a wife, and therefore ho sought and was
only happy in ladies' society. Why, then, possess
ing all ma'rryiiig ad vantages, did he not take to
tnmselt a daughter ol Hive anil enu ins misery r
That is a nuestion a great many beautiful girls and
handsome young widows of bis acquaintance put
to themselves, but wnicti tney were not atne to
answer. Fortunately, it is in our power to reply
to it.
Up to Mr. Nelville's thirty-fourth year he had
ot along without much solicitude nbouf. marry
ing, lie lelt himseit still young, and tunc mere
was time onrush; nevertheless, he kept his eyes
about him, and was on the look out for some one
with whom he might unite his destiny. But being
fastidious, and requiring a high order of perfect
ion, he was not easily satisfied. Une was a little
too short, another a little too tall, another talked
too fast, another too slow; one was too lively, an
other too sober; one had a nose with a high. bridge
on it, another without any bridge at all, and fi-tljjrd
had a saucy turn up at the end. Une laced too
tight, and he feared slio would die n his Itands of
consumption; and another was too lat, and lie np-
nrchended apoplexy ! We might go on with the
enumeration without end. Neal Nelville, Esq.,
seemed destined never to marry.
But when he bad, as we have said, reached his
thirty-fourth year, chance threw in his way a piece
f perfection ot woman kind, one seemed la u It-
ess in his eye and taste ; not that he kissed her as
the butterfly in the song did tho flower! He was
at Naliaut lazily lying on a rock, fishing for gudg
eon or any other fish that might be foolish enough
to bite, when he was startled by seeing a straw hat
and ribbons flying directly over his eyes, and after
nguyration or two through the air, alighted gently
upon the water and there floated. It was a lady's
hat, and a lady must his near. Up ho sprang and
looked around him, for the place was somewhat
etired, and he saw two young ladies, one of them
bonneiless, and both running towards the spot
where the hat was cradled upon the waves. The
one that had lost the hat run like n fa wn, bounding
lightly from rock to rock, laughing as she flew, her
golden brown tresses dancing in the wind, anil her
countenance Hushing with health and excitement.
Our bachelor stood entranced. Such a beauti
ful creature had never before met his eyes.
"My hat, sir, my hat," she cried in a voice of
music, like a silver trumpet sounding down the
winds. Her voice recalled him to himself. With
characteristic gallantry he bounded down the steep
rock, and with his long fishing pole fished up, just
ultimo, the sinking straw hat, heavy with the un
ity fluid, which dropped from it as from a sieve.
" W hat a condition, ' said she merrily, as she
look it from the pole, for she stood several feet a
hove on the rock, and he had to reach it up to her.
Sir, 1 air. very grateful to you. 1 lie rude, saucy
wind took it off and bore it away without ceremo
ny ; indeed, sir, ir you nan not tieeu so goou as to
fish it out for me, 1 should have had my complex
ion spoiled. Have you caught any fish, sir? I
hope my hat has not srared the fishes away. '
" No, I assuro you. It would have an attract
ive power. I have caught no fish; I am satisfied
with having caught so fair a prize as your hat."
" You arc very gallanl, sir. Come Juila, our
party will think we have fallen from the elitT.
Good morning, sir."
And liefoie Ihe fisher could speak to say, he
hardly knew what, but with one idea of desiring
to have her always present, she was far away,
bounding like a sylph along the ridge of rocks,
and was the next moment hid from bis sight. He
had been bewitched by the bewitching girl, and
stood a while with his fishing rod in one hand, and
his cap in the other, like a we won't say "fool"
exactly, but looking very foolish. As soon as he
recovered his senses, he started in pursuit, resolv
ed to ascertain who she was. But no where could
he discover her. All day he was in pursuit, and
he could not see or hear any thing from her. From
that time theie was a change very perceptible to
his friends in Neal Nelville, Esq. He was senti
mental, wrote poetry for the magazines, and stay
ed about of moonlight nights.
But this wore off in lime, and ho become him
self again; but the face of the beautiful unknown
was so indelibly impressed upon bis heart and
memory, that there was no place there fur any
other.
Tho world knew not the secret and many a fair
maiden secretly accused In in of being cold and hol
low hearted, when unknown to her, the purest fire
of devotion to one of her sex burned on the altar
of his heart.
Having now acquitted Neal Nelville, Esq. of
this serious charge, we will proceed to our story.
He was n generous man. Liberal to a fault, he
gave to the poor and needy, and blessjd with his
benevolent donations many u roof of poverty. lie
delighted in seeking out worthy young men and
placing them in business; and he was a public
benefactor of the poor and industrious sewing girl.
Such an advertisement, therefore, as that with
which wo have prefaced our tale, could not fail to
attract his eye and move his benevolent feelings,
ever alive to any calls of misfortune. He was
lounging on a divan, taking his coffee and reading
his newspaper together, as was his custom; now a
sip of coffee, now a paragraph, then a bit of toast,
then a dozen lines. In this manner he came up
on the advertisement. It at once dissipated all his
ennui, for ho felt particularly dull that morning,
and an opportunity'of doing good always made him
lie read it over three times,
er. Its appearance was very respectable and was
evidently once the residence of nn old and distin
guished colonial family. He knocked, and a wo
man that seemed in the condition of a servant,
opened the door. On asking for the lady who had
advertised, she showed him into a small wainscot
ed room on the left. A patchwork carpet covered
the floor; old highbacked chairs stood stiffly a
round the room; a black beaufet was in one cor
ner, and one or two portraits of gentlemen of a
former age, in queues and ruffs, hung on the wall.
The air of every thing was genteel and respecta
ble. He had just time to make these observations,
when the door opened and a female entered, in
mourning and deeply veiled. She gracefully
courtesied, und said with a silvery voice, that
strangely thrilled his soul:
'Pardon me, sir, if I do not unveil? If you de
cline to grant my wishes, I do not desire you to
know whose request you have refused, lest we
meet again! My object in advertising as I have
done, I will briefly explain to you. lama south
erner. I married the son of the lady who dwells
here. He was defended from one of the crown
Governors of the province, but was not rich. He
went south and became unfortunate and lost nil
my property with his own. We came north. He
dwelt here with his mother, ond here we lived re
tired from society. He prevniled'on her to make
him over tho house and all she was worth. I shrink
from the exposure of this act, but it is needful you
should know the circumstances, sir. He got the
property unknown to me and lost it all in a few
weeks by gambling. He then became desperate,

destitute and remained here, my mother-in-law
giving mo an asylum. She, as well as myself,
were ignorant unlit yesterday, that he had mort
gaged the whole property obtained from his moth

'Mortgaged it!' exclaimed Mr. Nelville, deeply
interested.
'Yes, sir. Yesterday morning the mortgagee
came to say that one thousand dollars were due
upon it, and unless paid within three clays, the
whole should be sold. I did not feel much for my
self, as I did for the-venerable lady wdio was thus
to be turned into tho street. In the impulse ol the
moment I sat down, wrote and sent the advertise
ment to the Gazette, hoping against hope, that it
might meet tho eye of some benevolent person,
through whose aid this calamity might be avert
ed.' She ceased, weeping and trembling with the
deepest embarrassment.
'1 will advance the money madam. The mort
gage I myself assume for the present. Let your

She uracefully vet modestly obeyed, and he bo-
held the loved lectures of the unknown.
'Can it be possible !' he exclaimed. "This is a
moment of happiness I did not anticipate. Do you
recognise me?'
'Yes, sir. You rescued my straw hut from the
water with your fishing pole. I have never for
gotten von !'

'Oh that we hud met before you were married.
But I trust'
He blushed, and with an embarrassed air, said:r
'Pardon inc. I have long remembered you, and
have daily hoped to meet you again.'
The lovely widow hung her beautiful head,gen-
tly smiled, and suffered him to take her hand and
press it to his lips.
That day, three mouths, to the surprise of eve
ry lady of his acquaintance, Neal Neville, Esq.,
became the happy husband of the fair advertiser.
True benovoleuce never goes unrewarded.
TO THE PUDLIC.
There is not loom in a newspaper advertisement to pub
lish the numerous certificates of cures, but the invalid is
referred to a medical pamphlet to be bad of any of the
gents gratis. Such proof as we are constantly laying be
fore the public must convince all that
DR. LAR DOR'S EXTRACT OF LUNGWORT
is the only medicine in the world that will cure all who
are predisposed to Consumption, Liver Complaints, or
troubled with Coughs, Colds, Asthma, Pleurisy. Spitting
of Blood, pain in tho side and chest, difficulty of breathing,
tightness across the chest, palpitation of the heart, Bron
chitis, throat complaints, and all alTcctions of the pulmo
nary organs. If this is not sufficient, he will refer any
one to. otln'rs, who, at the dale above, are now using this
article in a variety of protracted Liung and l.iver com
plaints.
All the certificates shown to the public prove conclu
sively one thing that the Vegetable Lxtract of
Lungwort is possessed of certain powers in healing the
lungs and restoring energy to those who were biipposed
to be fast sinking into the grave, over every other remedy
ancient or modern.
And why not! It is a medicine that is not tho work of,
a day the compound of a drug shop, having only for its
object a sale. It is a remedy that owes its existence from
nature's source, a certain cure for complaints of the lungs
and all the premonitory symptoms of consumption.
Q,uackery would probably put new life into a skeleton,
provided you would believe il at least; the inventors of
some of the seeming popular remedies would induce you
to believe so, if possible. It is lo put in the place of such
stuff a remedy really of use to mankind, that the Vegeta
ble Extract of Lungwort was made.
Tho study of years the proper proportion of ingredi-
enls their ellect upon Ihe different systems, and the
stage of disease in the patients all these were in the
"mind's eye" of the physician who formed this medicine.
Me knew that to make somethinz really useful as a reme
dy, study and observation were necessary, and ho failed
not to devote all bis attention to the purpose. He has
succeeded the VEGETABLE EXTRACT OF LUNG
WORT has taken its stand, and beyond the leading med
icines of the present time, as the only true eradicator of
pulmonary CONSUMPTION extant. This is true and
certain trfie, because susceptible of proof certain, be
cause its power and usefulneFS in saving hundreda from
death cannot be controverted. J. C. ROOSEVELT.

, Neal Nelville, though endowed with every qual
ity of mind and person to win the female heart,
unaccountably lo his friends and to numerous (air
aspirants for his hand, remained single until he
had got n full lustre past the halfway stone of his
three score and ten years. He was, nevertheless,
what is called n 'lady's man.' He had leisure, and
this he devoted to the sex. At an opera he was
seen ushering into the boxes the brightest beauties
of the town. If there was a concert, Neal Nel
ville was present with a smiling belle on either
arm. In Washington street he never walked a-
lone, and nt every third step he raised his hat to
Bome beautiful girl or dashing widow. Yet he had
never proposed. Nobody had ever heard of his
ever having been in love; and the ladies at length
despaired ! But so long as neither of them caught
the butterfly, there was no envy or cold looks, and
bU presence always brought smiles to the lips of
those who no longer thought of him except as a
friend and gallant for tho street, concert or drive.
Thus the happy, handsome, rich, young old
bachelor, fully realized tho desire contained in the
well known song
I'd be a butterfly, born in a bower,
Living where roses and violets meet
K iving forever from flower to flower,
And kissing all bud? that are pretty 8t sweet.
T!:e apartments occupied by our butterfly of
forty years' experience, were Ht the l remont. It

ami then seemed to dwell upon it, and endeavor to
be guessing nt the circumstances which could have
produced such nn advertisement in the public ga
zette. 'No matter what they are; it is plain that a
cloud hangs over some one's bead and heart; it is
in my power to remove it; she is a woman too;
this is anneal enough. She may be young und
beautiful. She may be old ond infirm; and in this
case much more is needed. I will respond to the
advertisement, and see the issue.'
With that noble sentiment he took a pen ami
wrote us follows:
'Madam Your advertisement has met the eye
of one who is able to serve you, if you can show
that the circumstances of which you speak are

Mr. Nelville knew this street to be a retired and
by no means o fashionable one, though none the
less respectable. But he did not expect to find in
fashionable life, n person advertising thus for a
loan. He took bis way lo the street and found the
house to be an antiquated mansion of the last cen
