And be kuew that a branch from ibis childhood's
Won id sustain him, as would no other.
Earing his spirit through days lang syne,
To sccces of frcshnes* and beauty,
When the friends of his youth around h'm

And friends atUI live, elf e why this gi't,
From a dear and distant brother !

O ! iove in life's morn is beautiful,
More beautiful at even;
May it bear ye both as a faithful staff

JDr. Kane's Lecture—Arctic Explorations
Dr. Kane proceeded to discuss the supposed
position of Sir John Franklin, and the proba
bilities of his eventual ieecue.
The experience of Parry and bis followers
prove that this region is a vast archipelago,
•whose main approach is by a large Sound call
ed Lancaster; and whose most prominent pas
sage to the north is by a large estuary or in-
Jet, named after the Duke of Wellington—
This inlet has been frequently observed free
franklin was ordered by the British Admi
ralty jo proceed through Lancaster Sound fcr
some three hundred and fifty miles, to a Cape
called Walker; thence he was to steer to the
southward and westward, towards, Behring's
Straits. Failing to accomplish this, he was
ordered to attempt a passage to the north by
VVellington channel. Dr. Kane, by a series
of practical arguments, which seem to us al
most conclusive, shows that this was the pas
sage which he adopted, and we see, although
a lew pf the English officers differ with him
in opiaiou, that the recent publications of the
British press fully sustain this view. The po
sition of Sir John Franklin's first winter quar
ters, at the very mouth of the channel, is con
clusive as to the fact of that judicious com*
nmndei having contemplated i's future naviga
tion. It was the alternative enjoined by his
'orders," and the lecture detailed many facts
to show that it was a favorite alternative. Dr.
Kane, in investigating the natural laws which
regulate the ice-drift, showed that the eastern
sides of this channel Are earlier and more fre
quently open than the western; and the pecu
liar position of Sir John Franklin enabled
liim to see and.take advantage of the very first
of these early opening*.
Add to this the singular and perplexing fact
that Franklin left no written record of his in
tentions, and it really seems as if the ice had
suddenly opened to the north, and that Sir John
with his daring and energetic promptitude,
had pushed into this new water, without de
laying to give to the world behind him a notice
of his course. Certain it is that the deserted
encampment bears marks of hasty departure
forcing us to the conclusion that Sir John
x ranklinhad s.x years ago reached the region
north of this ice-bound inlet, and has since
been unable to return.
Can he have survived ? This question was
then taken up by Dr. Kane in a manner thai
surprised us. We were unprepared for the
resources which that region evidently posseo
se3 for the support of human life, Narwhal,
white whales, and seal—the lutter in extreme
abundaucc—crowd the waters of Wellington
channel; indeed, was it described as a region
'■teaming with animal life." The migrations
of the eider duck, the great goose, and the
auk—a bi d about the s : ze of our teal—were
absolutely wonderful. The fatty envelope of
tiiese marine animals, known as blubber, sup
plies light and heat, their furs warm aud'well
adapted .clothing, their flesh wholesome and
anti scorbutic food; while the snow-hut, or
Igloe of the Esquimaux, furnished a dry 'and
comfortable housing 1 lu a word, Dr. Kane
announced that, "altera careful comparison if
all the natural resources of this region," lie
was convinced that food, fuel, and clothing—
the three great contributors to human exist
ence— were here in superabundant plenty.
In answer to the supposition of the entire
destruction of the vessels and crews of Sir
John Franklin by shipwreck, or the attacks o!
the ice, Dr. Kane said that wind storms were
rare, and that the simultaneous destruction of
both vessels was hard to realize; but even sup
posing that winds should have foundered the
ships, or thatthe ice should have cm .ied them,
that same ice would serve, in either case, as a
means of escape. In 1832 more than one thou
sand whalerd were cast out,shelterless, upon
the ice in Baffin's bay. Yet only seven men
The interesting question of an open sea
around tlie pole was then taken up. After ci
ting the theoretical arguments in favor of such
a body of water, which we cannot here renew,
Dr. Kane mentioned that the American Expe
dition under Lieut. De Haven had actually
seen, from their most northern point, that un
mistakable sign, the dark cloud known as the
"water sky," and Capt. Penny, an energetic
whaler, for whose views Dr. Kane seemed to
have a great respect, confirmed this "sky" bv
sighting the water itself.
Such an open sea has been vaguely called
a Polynya, or Poliniya—a term from the Rus
sian, which implies an open space. Dr. Kane
cannot think that, in a literal sense, such a sea
exists in regions where the mean temperature
is so far below the point of congelation, lie
fully advocated, however, the existence of a
comparatively iceless sea, in which the drift
It is in this region not far to the north and
vest of the point which the American Expe
dition reached, that he supposes Sir John
Franklin and his companions to be immured;
surroundeiTby seal, and the resources before
described, but unable to leave their hunting
gr6und and cross the "frigid Sahara" which
intervenes between them and the world from
•which they are shut out. —Mat. Int.
[We have accounts of preparations for fit
ting out another expedition from England, to
proceed in search of Sir John Franklin.]

Privileged Members.—A correspondent
of the New York Independent, writing from

a minister wbc was not acquainted with the
ways of the capital :
A gentleman on a visit here, and anxious
to listen to the debates, opened very cooly
one of the doors of the Senate, and was about
to pass in, when the doorkeeper asked, "Are
you a privileged member/""What do you
raean, by s»ch a man?" asked the stranger.
The reply was, "A Governor, an ex-member

official. (Very gravely pointing up,)"Frotn

has made in this generation to facilitate the busi
ness of life—increase its enjoyment, and even pro
long the term of human existence, none can he
named of more real value to mankind, than this
contribution of Chemistry to the healing art. A
vast trial of its virtues throughout this broad coun
try, has proven beyond a doubt, that no medicine
or combination of medicines yet known, can so
surely control and cure the numerous varieties of
pulmonary disease which have hitherto swept from
our midst thousands and thousands every year.—
Indeed, there is now abundnnt reason to believe a
remedy has at length been found which can be re
lied on to cure the most dangerous affections oft ai
lungs. Our space here will not permit us to pub
lish any proportion of the cures affected by its use,
but we would present the following opinions of
eminent men, and refer further enquiry to the
circular which the Agent below named, wiil always

land, robbing the pocket* of the bone*t and un

poisonous trash, for the genuine H. G- F*rreH'*
Arabian Liniment. Fellow Citizen* I Look well
before you buy, and »ee that the label of the bottle
haa the lettera H. G. before ParreH'*,for if it las
not it is cocNTrarKrr. The label around each
bottle of all my liniment reads thus, "H. G. Far
rell's Celebrated Arabian Liniment;" and my sig
nature is written upon the label alao, and these
words are blown in the gias* bottle, "H G. Far
rell's Arabian Liniment, Peoria."
This truly great medicine still goes on, conquer
ing disease, and snatching many a poor, powerless
victim fri.m the grave. By its powerfully stimu
lating, penetrating and Anodyne qualities, it re
stores the use of limbs which ha\e been palsied
for years; and by its singular power of repro
ducing the Synovial Fluid or Joint water, it curss
all diseases of the Joints with|surprising rapidity.
For Rheumatism, and affections of the Spine and
Spleen.it has proved itself a specific; and for
affections of the Lungs, Liver and Kidneys, it is a
most valuable and powerful auxiliary; also, for
all diseases of the Glands, Scrofula, Goitre or
Swelled Neck, Slc. Sic. And indeed for almost any
disease where an external application i* required,
this medicine stands unparalleled.
From the Hon. Peter Minard, oneof the Oldest Set
tlers i/i Illinois.
It gives me pleasure to add my testimony to the
virtues of your great medicine. One of my blood
ed horses had a swelling over the cap of the knee,
about the size of ahen'segg. Some said it was a
strain, and some, that it was the joint water from
the knee, and could not be cured. I tried oil cedar
on it, and all the liniments and ointments, and
they did no more good than water. I then, by per
suasion of my friends, tried H. G. Farrell's Arabian
Liniment, and I was happy to find it take effect
after a few days, and it finally cured the noble ani
mal entirely. I think it is decidedly the greatest
linimmt for horse as well as human flesh, I ever
[Esq. Barker, of New Canton, 111. says
Mr. H. G. Farrell's Arabian Liniment has cu*ed
some bad cases here, which every other remedy
had failed in : one was a white swelling and con
tracted cords in the leg of a boy twelve years old.
The leg haa withered away, and was so contracted
that he had no use of it. Three doctors had tried
their skill upon it in vain,and he was fast sinking to
the grave, when the boy's father was induced to try
H. G. Farrell's Arabian Liniment. Befpre the'first
bottle was used up he came into Mr. B.'s store, and
the first words he said were, " Mr. Barker, I
all that Liniment you have in the store; the one
bottle I got did my boy more good than all that had
ever been done before." That boy is now well and
heaity, and has free use of his legs. It is good
for sprains, bruises, cuts, burns and swellings.
Being fully satisfied that H. G. Farrell's Arabian
Liniment is the best medicine in the world, I cheer
fully recommend it I had been afflicted for 16
years with a most severe pain in my treast and

The public are particularly cautioned against a
base Counterfeit which has lately made its appear
ance, and is called by the Imposter who makes it,
"W. B. Farrell's Arabian Liniment." This is a
dangerous fraud, and more liable to deceive from
his bearing the name of Farrell. Therefore be par
ticular niter to call for it by the name •'Farrell's Li
niment," for unprincipled dealers will impose this
SPURIOUS Mixture upon you for the genuine, but
always ask for H. G. Farsell's Arabian Lini

has the letters H. G. before Farrell'*, his signa

words blown in the glass bottle. "H. G. FAR

Mr. E. Stokes McElroyDear Sir—Hearing
you are about offering your valuable Medicine for
aale, I deem it my duty to you, as well as to the
afflicted, to offer my testimony in its favor, and of
the extraordinary cure it made of me. It is known
by many that I bad for a long time a distressing
Cough, accompanied by a very acute pain in my
side, back and breast, with high fevers and loss of
appetite, and when my coughing would come on,
I was so much prostrated that I could not stand,
and I would raise a very large amount of matter,
in pieces almost as large as my finger, having the
appt arance of my lungs I finally got so weak
that I gave up all hopes of ever getting well. About
that time I commenced taking your Pectera! Cor
dial, more to please my friends "than from any ex
pectation of obtaining relief; but strange to say,
Six Bottles made an entire cvbe of me ; and I
am fully convinced if I had not taken yourmedi
cine, I could not have recovered.
You may use this certificate in any way that you
choose, and refer persons to me if you think pro
per, and I will give them any information ia regard
to my case thatthey may desire.
