What a pity that a young man, the hope of his
country, I lie darling of bis parents, should be
snatched from all prospects and enjoyments ot
life, by the consequence of deviating from the
path of nature and indulging in a certain secret
habit. Such iersons must before conteraDlating
reflect that a sound mind and body are the mos'
ucceseary requisites to promote connubial happi
ness. Iudeed without these, the Journey through
life becomes a weary pilgrimage ; the prospect
hourly darkens to the view ; the mind becomes
shadowed with despair and tilled with the melan
choly reflection, that the bappincs-" of another
becomes blighted with ourowu.
A CERTAIN DISEASE.
When the misguided and imprudent votary ol
pleasure finds that he has imbibed the seeds ol
this painful disease, It too often happens that an
ill-timed sense of shame, or dread of discovery,
deters him from applying to those who, from
education and respectability, can alone befriend
him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms of
this horrid disease make their appearance, such
as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose, noctural
pains In the bead and limbs, dimness of sighi,
deafness, nodes on the shin bones and arms,
blotches on the head, face and extremities, pro
gressing with frightful rapidity, till at last the
palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fall
in, and the victim of this awful disease becomes
a horrid object of commiseration, till dea'th puts
a period to his dreadful suffering, by sending
him to "that Undiscovered Country from whence
no traveller returns."
It is a melancholy fact that thousands DIE
victims to this terrible disease, through falliue
Into tbe hands of Ignorant or unskillful PRE
TENDERS, who. by tbe nse of that deadly Poi
son, Mercury, dec, destroy the constitution, and
incapable of curing, keep tbe nnhappv sulicrer
taonlh after month taking their noxious or in
jurious compounds, and instead of being restored
to a reuewai of Life Vigor and Happiness, in des
pair leave him with ruined Health to sigh ovet
his galling disappointment.
To such, therefore, Dr. Johmbto pledges him
self to preserve the most Inviolable Secrecy, and
from his extensive practice and observations in
the great Hospitals of Europe, and the first it:
this country, vir: England, Franc, Pbiladclphi i
and elsewhere. Is enabled to offer the most eer

for all diseases of imprudence.

The Second Book or Genesis In
ET L. L. TKT.
God made the Heavens and earth in six days
And rested on the seventh. The sun's rays
Poured down and glorified the day
And made it beautiful. The robin's lay
Made sacred the surroundings. God blessed
Aud hallowed this day and took his rest.
Before the creation no rain had formed ;
After the creation for days it storm'd.
There was no man to irrigate tbe soil
Until man was made from the dust to toil.
A gaiden was made eastward of Eden,
"Where God placed man to rest and feed Iu ;
Where trees of all kinds were caused to grow
For food, looks, and good ard evil to know.
The garden was well-watered and fertile ;
Adam love'd to lie under tbe myrtle.
And God said of '-the Iruit of ev'ry tree
Thou mayst freely, freely eat. Obey me,
For it Is the tree of knowledge of good
And evil." In nis .Majesty he stood.
"But of that tree its frnits thou shall not eat,
And if thou dost, to die shall be thy fate."
His maker made, but Adam Darned all things ;
Ev'ry beast of the field, ccatnres with wings ;
But Adam bud no wife that he could kiss,
Aud was real tired of single blessedness.
On Adam's eyes a sudden dullness came ;
God made him sleep, and without getting lame,
Or halt, from his side a rib was taken,
When Adam, upon being well shaken,
Awoke, and was shown Eve's beautiful face,
The cause of the sin of the hnman race.
And Adam mused "Woman shall be her name."
The reason ? because out of man she came.
She's flesh of my flesh, aud bone of my bone,
But what she would do was not us yet known.
A man bis father and mother shall leave,
And to bis wife with constancy shall cleave ;
So they llv'd in the place where beasts were
They both were naked and not ashamed.

'I don't want thanks,' said Mrs. Glenn ;

'Not I,' said Mrs. Bright Firstly, I

it is all true, I wash my hands of helping

Mrs. Glenn smiled sarcastically.

Mr. aud Mrs. Willis lived next door, and
all of them attended the same church.
Either of the latter pair were peculiarly
fond of each other, or were more disposed
to show their fondness than most people
are ; but certainly they were known as a
model couple. He was a tall, handsome
black-whiskered man of forty. She was a
petite blonde of twenty-two or three. Evi
dently no man was so wise, so great, so
perfect in her eyes as her husbacd. Evi
dently no woman so charming to him as
Now, there are a great many women to
whom this sort of thing is gall and worm
wood. They cannot bear to see it, and try
to break it up if possible. All the flirts in
the congregation bad tried to do this and
failed. All the sour matrons whoso
married lives were spnt iu spats and
squabbles, sneered at the happy pair, and
declared that it wouldn't last long. But it
had lasted for five or six years, aud not a
flaw had been discovered in the conduct of
either, until, one bright summer, when
Mrs. Willis having left home on a visit to
her sister, a very pretty young lady arrived
at a neighboring hotel, and Mr. Willis
Mr. Willis, no other was seen to devote
himself to her in a way that was positively
shocking. Yes, positively terrible. For
Mrs. Glenn and Mrs. Norton, who took to
going about in water proof cloaks and hoods
after dark, had not only seen Mr. Willis
take ice cream with this young lady, but
were ready to swear that he kissed her at
parting, and on more than one occasion
was seen to put bis ana around her waist.
This had gone on for three weeks, when
Mrs. Willis returned, and now, as the lady
was unpacking her trunks in her party
room next door, the two watchers had de
termined to inform her of her husband's
infidelity, and no task could have been
more pleaRing to them.
Dressing in their best and armed with
parasols and fans, they watched Mr. Willis'
departure from the house with eager eyes,
and then hastened down stairs, almost ran
up the steps of the house next door, an
xious to meet the happy face they hoped to
change to misery.
'Thank you for coming to see me so
soon.' said she. 'It does seem as though
I'd been away from home a whole year
Mr. Willis says it seems five to him and
yet I'vo been enjoying myself ever so
'I'm glad to hear it,' said Mrs. Norton.
'Your happiness is fleeting,' said Mrs.
They spoke so solemoly that Mrs. Willis
thought that something unpleasant must
have happened to one of them.
'Every one well I hope ?' she said more
'Quite,' said Mrs. Norton with a sigh.
'Anything new ?' said Mrs. Willis.
'No,' said Mrs. Glenn. 'People are as
wicked as ever, aud that is as old as
'Mrs. Black has been overcharging her
for extras, or the chaaibermaid has let
the milkmau kiss her,' thought Mrs. Wil
lis. 'And what tine weather we are having,'
she added aloud.
'Yes,' said Mrs. Norton, with a little
groan, 'I often think of those lines in the
'Where every prospect pleases.
And only man is vile."
'How vile man is sometimes,' said Mrs.
'Ah,' said Mrs. Norton.
'I shouldn't wonder if Mr. Glenn has
been flirting with some one,' thought Mrs.
'I have the photograph of all sister
Sarah's children,' said Mrs. Willis, 'I'll
show them to you if you like.'
'Thank you. Mrs. Willis,' said Mrs.
Glenu ; 'but our hearts are full of serious
thoughts just now. We are thinking too
much of evil hearts to look at innocent
children's fates. We have come to tell you
something, Mrs. Willis.'
I knew something was on your mind,'
said the unsuspicious woman to herself;
but she merely gave a little bow and looked
'You are young, Mrs. Willis,' said Mrs.
'Comparatively young,' added Mrs.
And you don't know yet how very
wicked this world is,' said Mrs. Norton.
'Ah, no,' said Mrs. Glenn.
'Nor what men are,' said Mrs. Norton.
'You don't often faint, do you ?' asked
I never,' said Mrs. Willis.
'That is well,' said Mrs. Norton, I fear
we will agitate you very much.'
Mrs. Willis began to look grave.
'No accident has happened,' she faltered.
Mr. Willis I saw him leave the bouse
ten minutes ago nothing has ?'
'As far as we know Mr. Willis is per
fectly safe aud wel!,' said Mrs. Glenn, se
verely. 'Mrs. Willis, I feel il my duty as a
frieud to warn you that you should not
have earthly idols. Your one thought ap
pears to be your husband. There s re other
people to whom terrible tbings could hap
pen.' 'And idols of clay may easily be shatter
ed,' said Mrs. Nortou.
'Oue naturally thinks of one 'sown first,'
said Mrs. Norton.
'I am sure I shall be distressed to hear
that any one has met with a misfortune,'
Mrs. Willis also added.
'We all meet with misfortunes sooner or
later,' said Mrs. Glenn ; 'and again I say
you think too much of one sinful man.'
'I am not aware that I requested advice
on the subject,' said Mrs. Willis, 'and
I scarcely think a womau could love so
good a husband too well, or honor him too
'Good ! cried Mrs. Norton.
'Mrs. Willis,' said Mrs. Glenn, 'how do
you know he is better than any other man
that he is not even untrue to you ?
Mrs. Willis started to her feet in indig
nation. 'How dare you' she began.
'Stop,' said Mrs. Glenn. 'We have
come to speak and will speak. It is our
duty to unmask a hypocrite.'
Mrs. Willis, scarlet with anger, remained
Mrs. Norton began to look happy. Mrs.
Glenn even smiled.
'My dear friend.' she said, 'wo believe
that you ought to know that you are dread
fully deceived. While you have been ab
sent your husband devoted himself to an
other lady a beautiful girl who arrived
immediately after your departure. We
have seen him kiss and embrace her have
we not, Mrs. Norton ?'
'Oh yes, said Mrs. Glenn. 'Lovely
outwardly. I think she must be French.
It is quite terrible. We found it to be so ;
but we found it necessary to do our duty
and inform you at once.'
'Thank you,' said Mrs. Willis in a
choked voice, as she covered her face with
her handkerchief. 'I hope,' she said,' af
ter a moment's silence, 'that you will not
refuse to repeat this in the presence of Mr.
Willis. Of course you are not afraid to
speak ttie truth before any one. If you
will wait I will send for him, I will not be
She still kept her face hidden, but her
agitation was evidently great
'I must insist upon your presence,' she
said iu faltering accents ; 'and if I separate
from Mr. Willis. I shall need you for wit

This was more than the ladies had bar
gained for, but retreat was impossible.
Mrs. Willis left the room, and returned
with her face hidden in her handkerchief.
There was some silence in the room, and
as the time passed Mrs. Norton began to
wish herself safely at home, but Mrs.
Glenn was of firmer stuff and braved the
matter out better.
Half an hour passed ; then a latch key
was heard in the ball door. It opened.
Mrs. Willis still concealed her face. A step

as bright as it had ever been in all their re
membrance of its brightness, and turned
'Ladies,' she said, 'allow me to intro

She has been with grandmother in France
until lately. You know, or do not know,
that Mr. Willis' first wife was a French
lady, and she has just come to us. As I
was absent, the hotel was pleasanter to
her than the empty house, and so she has
staid their until to day. She is just four

glad to have her with me.'
Mrs. Glenn arose, and so did Mrs. Nor

been very much amused.
But Mrs. Glenn aud Mrs. Norton were
not amused, I fear ; and lhat very night
they quarreled so violently about the mat

To the coon belongs the honor of a suc
cessful prophet. On Cuudleruas day, Feb
ruary 2d, he saw bis shadow clearly all
day, and six weeks Siberian winter follow
ed. This prophecy of the coon has brought
forth the following comical effusion, wbich
we are requested to publish, from one who
has studied the nature and habits ot that
animal. It will be seen that the writer is a
great sympathizer, and feels rejoiced that
the animal prophet gave warning that it
would be nonsense for any man to venture
to poke bis nose out of tbe house before
the expiration of the time he would make
his appearance again. Tbe communica
tion is written in a peculiar style, and will,
no doubt, be appreciated :
Pap Wasiien says it's a good thing the
old coon went in his hole this time, for if
be hadn't he'd a froze to death this winter
sure ; there'd abin no coon left for another
winter to tell us about the weather, poor
fellow, after all this freezing and blowing,
bailing and snowing, he'd abin so cold and
stiff, corporation so dense aud weightyJ
lhat his old legs would no longer have car
ried him proudly and sately upon his feet ;
but would have left his body lay down to
rest in calm repoee his eyes too dim to see
the snow dissolve on the summits of the
distant hills ; hia mouth unable to quench
any possible thirst; or his tongue to lap up
the refreshing waters rippling gently by his
feet; his nose too cold to be sensitive to the
ample breeze ; hia jaws so firmly locked as
to render his teeth no longer formidable lo
foes, nor available in hunger ; his ears too
dull to heed or hear approaching danger ;
his do: maul instiuct and reason too cold
and indi&renl to be longer apprehensive
of passing events, tbe temperature or tbe
imposing and periodical approach of com
ing seasons, even a bark, bound or shud
der.a convulsive shudder through his frame,
or the least muscular movement or excite
ment, would certainly be regarded as quite
Or the movement of bis tail,
To swiuK about him like a flail,
And drive away the greeu battle fly,
Should he come darting and buzziug too ni'h.
And should you kick to move any part
of him an inch, that sttoke alone would
move the whole animal machine in every
part at once, as of one shove, you would
move a cake of ice or a brick of clay.
Thus paralized and insensible, for the time
being, to tbe revolution of circumstances
involving his corporal bearing, his future
history might be briefly contemplated. The
accompanying rest that would inevitably
ensue in such a case, would cause his own
weight to settle him down so firmly upon
the surface of the frozen ground and snow
that one whole side of his body and all
along his neck and bead would be flattened
out iu exact keeping with bis postrate posi
tion. And his wooly hair of the same in
similar plight; while that of the other
side fat, full and rolling, sways and moves
majestically before the surging winds or
winter's breeze. Nothing more is left him
unimpaired but his internal organization.
The heart and liver, lungs, blood, brains
and intestines, sljould they be in sympathy
and strict accord with the rest of bis frame,
as enumerated, how sad and lamentable
would have been bis changed condition.
Poor coon ! bow very helpless he would
thus have been ; compelled to lay resist
lessly, calm and quiet without tbe power or
choice of moving his head, limb or muscle
in the open plain ou his bleak and icy bed,
and induce the cold, the chilly wiuds, tho
raging storm, the blinding snow and the
freezing blast, would, methinks, be admit
ted as furnishing very strong reasons for
believing hint not very well, (himself,) and
never possible for him to return to sound
health or to his original status and influ
ence, now so permanently and brilliantly
established in the last decade, within Ihe
entire circuit of his acquaintance in this
and other countries where people live and
tbe thermometer settles down to where
moukies freeze and singed rats squeal.
In this case of cold weather judge Coon
it seems to have been as usual with him, a
question of life or death, and of the two,
like all mortal beings, he is known to
cherish and cliug dearly to life. And as
he appears to be in possession of positive
information, it became a matter of necessi
ty, on his part, to indicate the truth by
saving his own life. His is purely an act
of self-preservation, and although emina
ting from a grational being, it nevertheless
is not without a moral, and teaches proud
and haughty men, the more favored being, a
valuable lesson that is well worth remem
bering and emulating. This old Coon is a
valuable chap in the.land. An old relic of
importance that we would be loath to part
with in our country. But if he should ever,
by any ardor of desire or prevailing desti
ny, make tbe fatal mistake to ramble or
tramp from his sequestered home, 'sweet
borne, such a winter as this, it would sure
ly then be goodby Coon.
As it's plain to be seen, he'd rack very
soon. Day-before-yesterday, they soy, was
his day to come out again. Just one day
before St. Patrick's day in the morning.
And when be came out that day from bit j
winter retreat to see tbe sky and breathe
fresh air, and make a little reconnoisaoce of
the weather, he found it like its predeces
sor, six weeks previous, clear and bright.
And his shadow, as before,
Close to his side, as in days of yore ;
This drove him back a fain to base,
As it always closes when it soil his case.
How long ho stays tjiis time of year,
I do not know, as I did not hear ;
Some one else, who knows th history,
Mny father the pen that solves the mystery.

Give us more Fish. The average ar
rival of fresh fish at the Philadelphia mark
ets is said to amount in value to about six
thousand dollars a day. The Germantown
Telegraph, speaking on the subject, says :
'As a medical fact, not half as many fish
are eaten in this city as should be in view
of the good sound health of the community.
We eat entirely too much meat. Fish once
or twice a week should be eaten by every
family that cares to preserve its mental
qualities seriously unimpaired ; for fish, as
a diet, is rich in phosphorus, and hence is
very properly called brain food by some
philosophers. Meats supply us with car
bon. They do not fatten us much, but
they furnish in a great measure tbe fuel
that we daily consume in keeping tbe fire
of life in a state of brisk ignition. Vegeta
ble food gives, to a great extent, the ma
terial that finds us in flesh and bone. But,
in this country especially, the daily brain
waste is enormous, we are such an excita
ble, vivaciously thoughtful people. We
need, therefor, a correspondingly inordin
ate amount of brain food, or fish ; and for
want of it, 'softening of tbe brain' has be
come, of la te, a common malady.
Are we to become a 'light-headed people
because we don't eat sufficient fish ? Is it
owing to some suspicion of this kind that
it is an Americanism to say a person is
mad' when he or she is merely 'angry.
But why do we not make fish a more fre
quent article on our tables ? Sincb dedi
cated cod dsn has so largely taken tbe place
of tbe salted cod which used to scent our
dwellings offensively, the consumption of
fiih in that shape has doubled in quantity.
The consumption of oysters and clams
augments every year. That of other fish
would soon triple the amount now brought
to market if it could be supplied at a more
moderate price. Palatable fish aie held at
prices fully up to those of first quality
meats and hence are regarded as luxuries,
nH as ordinary food. This is to be deplor
ed. Fish are as well entitled to be classed
among "necessaries' of life as bread, and '
should be made as abundant and as cheap.
Give us plenty of fish and prices will come
down. At lower prices fish will be eaten
by thousands of families that now prefer
more solid food as a matter of economy.
Ancient Wonders. Nineveh 'was
fourteen miles long, eight miles wide, and
forty-six miles around, with a wall one
hundred feet high and thick enough for
three chariots abreast. Babylon was fifty
miles within the walls, which were seventy
five feet thick and one hundred feet high,
with one hundred brazen gates. The tem
ple of Diana, at D plies us, was four hun
dred and twcDty feet to the support of the
roof it was oue hundrtd years in build
ing. Tbe largest of the pyramids was four
hundred and eighty-one feet in height, tad
eight hundred and fifty-three feet oa the
sides. The base covered eleven acres.
The stones are about sixty feet in length,
and the layers are two hundred and eight.
It employed 350,000 men in building. Tbe
labyrinth of Egypt contains three hundred
cbambere and twelve hails. Thebes, in
Egypt, presents ruins twenty-seven miles

400,000 slaves. Tbe Temple of Delphos
was so rich in donations that it was plun

Nero carried away from it two hundred

The Great Gas Well. A burning
gas well, at Larden's Mill, Butler county
has been attracting many visitors in that
section. Tbe owners of the property on
which the well is situated were searching
for oil, and had sunk the well a distance -of
1145 feet to the first Sand rock. From
an account recently given by a visitor, it
appears that tbe flame shoots up to a height
of about 40 feet, and is about 15 feet wide.
It is of a white color and gives off an in
tense heat, the effect of which has been to
cause tbe trees and grass in its vicinity to
wear a spring aspect. The account in
question says that, at 60 feet distant, the
heat was 140 degrees. The light of this
immense column of flame can be seen from
a great distance, and at night time objects
in its neighborhood are made as clearly
clearly visible as by day. The quantity of
flame varies very slightly, and tbe rush of
the gas causes a rumbling sound which can
be heard to a considerable distance.
Acres rF Skeletons Unearthed in
Tennessee. The high water at tbe re
rant flood washed about four feet of earth
from ten to fifteen acres of land lying aloug
the Tennessee river, near Louisville, Blount
county, Tenn. When the water subsided
a strange spectacle was presented. The
whole of the denuded area was covered
with skeletons. Some were straight, soma
reclining, some doubled up, and some in a
sitting posture. There wete the osseous
forms of infants, of children, and of full
grown persons, over one thousand forms
baviug been counted. Persons who have
lived in the vicinity of this mysterious
cemetery for more than half a century
never beard of any human bones being dis
covered there before, and tbe skeletons are
not found in a mound, nor in what appears
to be unartificial formation of earth.
