vigor. In many hundred certified cases which
have been made public, and in almost every
species-of disease to which the human frame is
liable, the happy effects of Mofat's Life Pills
and Pheniz Batters, have been gratefully and
publicly acknowledged by the persons benefit

with the beautifully philosophical principles
upon which they are compounded, and upon
which tiey consequently act.
The Life Medicines recommend themselves
in diseases of every form and description.
Their fii'st operation is to loosen from the coats

these, and leave such collected masses behind
as to produce habitual costiveness, with all its

must eminently successful, so much so that in

most universally prescribe them.
All that.Mr. Mof'at requires of his patients is
to be particular in taking the Life Medicines
strictly according to the directions. It is not

Dr. D. AT. Reese :-Str,-After the meeting
in Forsyth-street, Monday evening, I was con
versing with a lady on the subjects there discus
sed, w'Len she told me I was almost a nonoma
niac, in my hatred to alcoholic drink: the fol
lowing verses were written to-day, as an excuse
for my warmth. Please, Sir. oblige me by
handing them to Mr. Hawkins, of the Baltimore
delegation, requesting him to present them to
his-daughter, as she also may be aceused of the
same fault. ALIRA.
Go, feel what I have felt,
Go, bear what I have borne;
Sink 'neath a blow a father dealt,
And the cold, proud wot Id's scorn:
Thus struggle on from year to year,
Thy sole relief the scalding tear.
Go, weep as I have wept,
O'er a loved father's fall;
See every cherished promise swept
Youth's sweetness turned to gall:
Hope's faded flowers strewed all the way
That led me up to woman's day.
Go, kneel as I have knelt;
Implore, beseech, and pray:
Strive the besotted heart to melt,
The downward course to stay
Be cast with bi tter curse aside
Thy prayers.burlesqued-thy tears defied.
Go, stand where I have stood,
And see the strong man bow:
With gnashing teeth, lips bathed in blood,
And cold and livid brow;
Catch his wandering glance, a nd see
There mirrored, his soul's misery.
Go, hear what I have heard
The sobs of sad depair
As memory feeling's fount hath stirred,
And its revealings there
Have told him what he might have been,
Had he the drunkard's fate foreseen.
-Go to thy mother's side,
.Thine own deep anguish hide
Wipe from-thy-check the tear.
Mirk her dimmed eye- her furrowe'd brow;
The gray that streaks her dark hair now
Her toil-worn frame-her tremrbling limb
And trace the ruin back to him
Whose plighted faith, in early youth,
Promised eternal love and truth:
But who forsworn, hath yielded uip
This promise to the deadly cup;
Aud let her down, from love and light,
From all that made her pathway bright,
nd chained her there, 'mid want and strife,
That lowly thing-a drunkard's wife!
And stamped on childhood's brow, so mild,
That withering blight-a drunkard's child!
Go, heaa, and see. and feel, and know,
All that my soul hath felt or known,
Then look within the wine-cup's glow
See ifits brightness can atone:
Think, if its flavor you would try,
If all proclaimed, 'Tis drink and die.
Tell me I hate the owl
Hate is a feeble word
I loathe-abhor-my v'ery soul
By strong disgust is stirred
Whene'er I see, or hear, or tell,
Of the dark beverage of hell!
From the Mounfainee'r.
1 gazed upon that brow, so white and high,
A nd thoughts of " other days" cameo tlitting by,
Like rainbows which are seen but disappear,
Throw'd in the brief existence of a tear.
The ma~em'ry it brought was soft and bright
As stars which sparkle thro' the summer's night,
Revealing touches of that heavena above,
Where hope can fondly piture truth and love.
Methought that years had kindly lent a charm
To keep th' existence of that menm'ry warma;
For from her eye still beamed the noble soul,
Which bow'd to affection's mild control.
I met the radiance of its soft blue light,
Which 1, in other dlays, had decm'd so bright;
And visions of the paat, so sweetly fair,
Had lost no charm from being pictured there.
I joy'd to think that time could bring no change,
Her heart from its pure mem'ries to estrange,
Anal blessed the power which to her soul had
So deep an impress of the faith ofilcaven !
1 marked the placid beauty of that brow,
Whose polish'd surface lies full humbly now ;
A nd then I pray'd the earth might bring no stain
To mar the trace of virtue's glorious reign..
That praycr is ansrcd:-arth could bring no
Across her spirit's pure and holy light;
And guardian angels gloried in. their prize,
As 'midst her youth they borc her to f/he skies!.

STAND up-erect! Thou hast the form
And likeness of thy God?-:who more?
A soul as dauntless 'mid the storm -
Of daily lire, a heart as warm
And pure as breast e'er wore.
What then 1-Thou art as true a MAN
As moves the human mass along,
As much a part of the Great Plan
That with Creaiion's dawn begnu,
As any of the throng.
Who is thine enemy ?-the high
In station, or in wealth the chief?
The great, who coldly pass thee by,
With proud step and averted eye? -
Nay! nurse-not such belief.
If true unto thyself thou wast,
What were the proud one's scorn to thee
A feather, which thou mightest cast
Aside, as idly as the blast
The light leaf from the tree.
'No:-uncurb'd passious-low desires
Absence of noble self respect
Dcnth in the breast's consuming fires,
To that high nature which aspires
Forever; till thus checked.
These are thine enemies-thy worst;.
They chain thee to thy lowly lot
The labor and thy life accurst,
Oh, stand erect! and from them burst;
And longer suffer not!
Thou art thyselfthine enemy!
The great !-what better they than thou?
As theirs, is not thy will as free ?
Has God with equal favors thee
Neglected to endow ?
True, wealth thou hast not: 'tis but dust!
Nor place: uncertain as the wind!
But what thou hast, which, with thy crust
And water, may despise the lust -
Of both-a noble mind.
With this, and passions under ban,
True faith, and holy trust in God,
Thou art the peer of any man.
Look tip, then-that thy little span
Of life may be well trod!

Misb Simper appeared at Saratoga in an
elegant suit of sable. She was said to be
in mourning for her father, an opulent bro
ker in Baltimore, recently deceased. Grief
had wasted her health, and weeping had
washed away her roses, and sie was come
torecover her appetite, and reanimate her
blushes. Miss. Simper of course, was an
heiress, and attracted great attention. The
gentleman called her a beauty, and talked
a great deal of her real estate, bank stock,
and securities. Some of the ladies thought
hercomplexion too sallow, and some ob.
jected the style of her dress; Mrs. High.
flyer said she had not the air of a woman
of fashion, while Capt. lalliard pronoun
ced her a suspicious sail and declared his
belief that she was a privateer in disguise.
The fair stranger. however, walked daily
to The fountain, modestly cast down her
eyes when gazed at, and seemed uncon
scious of all but her own horrors. About
ihis time, Major Fitzconnell appeared upon
the busy scene. le was a tall, handsome
man, of easy address, and polished man
tiers, who seemed to regard all around
him with an air of very polite unconcern.
Ile was announced as ani officer in his
Britannic Majesty's service, and brother to
Earl Somehody, in England. It was re
ported that he had large landed possessions
in the wecst, He did not appear to seek
society, but wvas too wvell 'ired to repel any
civilities wvhich were oflfered him. The
gentlemen were pleased with his god sense
his knowvledge of~ the world, and the snaevi
ty of his manners, but as he seemed to a~
void the ladies, they had little opport,uuiiy
of estimating his qualities.
Major Fitzconnell and Miss Simper me!

who had just filled his glass at her ap.
proachl, presented it to the lady, who, iti
sipping the trasparent element, droppec
her handkerchief. Trho gentlemian very
gallantly picked tip the cambric, and re

A eourtcsy on the one side, and anothei
bow on the other, terminated the eiviliies
of this meeting. Thme gentleman purmuci
his walk, and ihe lady returned to hei
chamber. That Mi'ss Simper felt dlul'
sensible of thme honor ofhavinmgelicted thre:
graceful congees from the brother of a:
English Earl cannot hie doubted; nor car
we suppose, without injustice to that gen
tieman's taste, that lie saw with indiffer

tetions had drawn forth; certain it is
howeyver, that as they separated in oppo

was so often allowed to interrupt the feast

At four o'clock the military stranger han
ded Miss Simper into an elegant gig, and
drove to the neighboring village; where ru
mor soon proclaimed that this interesting
pair were united in the holy hand of ma
trimony. For once, the many tongues of
fame spoke truly-and when the happy
Major returned with his blushinig bride, all
could see that the embarrassment of the
l6ver was exchanged for the triumphant
smile of the delighted bridegroom.. It is
hardly necessary to add that such was the
salutary effect of this pleasing event, that
the "young couple" found themselves re
stored instaticously to perfect health: and
on the following morning they bade adieu
to Saratoga Springs.

In the meanwhile the new-mnrriedl pair
were pursuingrthoir journey, b~y easy sta

all know "how the blest charms of natture
improve when we see them reflected,"
and so ou, and we can readily imagine
"how happily the days of Thalaba past
by" on this occasion. Uninterrupted by
ceremonious visits, unrestrained by the
presence of third parties, it is not surprising
that our lovers should often disgreess from
the beaten road, and as often linger at a
romantic spot, or a secluded cottage.
Several days had now elapsed,, and
neither party had made any disclosure to
the other upnni tho imnportaut suhject of
finance. 4s they were drawing neat- the
end of their journey, the Major- thought it
advisable to broach this delicnte matter to
his bride. It was upon a fine summer
evening, as they sat at a window, at an inn,
enjoyitng the beauties of an extensive land
scape, thtatihis memorable coniversation
occurred. They had been amusing them
selves with that kind .of small talk which
new marrted folks find so vastly pleasant;
as ho'v mu'ch they love one another, and
how happy-they intend to be and what a
fine thing is it for t wo fund hearts to be
dissolv-ed and melted down into one, &c.
Many examples of love and murder were
related-the lady told of several distressed
swains who: had inconmrnently hanged
themselves f'or their mistresses, and the
gentlemani asoften asseverated that not one
of those m'artyred lovers adored the object
of his passion,~ with half the fervor wvhich
he felt for his own dear, sroceL, darling pre
cious, little Anne! At least, throwing his
arms over his wife's chair, he said careless

replied the happy bride, "I have nothing

"Have you no real estate !" said the
Major, starting on his feet.

"No securities, no je'wels, no money!"

the late John Adams even to the last days
of his life, with all that good homer whibk
was so characteristic of him, and itts pi
