When the weather's unpleasant and dreary,
And the nightunblest by a star,
How sweet to a smoker, when weary,
Is the breath of a fragrant segar!
What a balm to the spirit, when lonely,
To gaze at the smoke as it flies!
And bright as the dreams, tho' dreams only,
That with each floating circlet arise!
When cares flesh is heir to perplex us,
And trifles, more harrassing far,
Arise in our path and sore vex us,
How soothing a fragrant segar!
Ii friends should prove false and leave us,
We can pass off the thing with a joke,
Nor allow their desertion to grieve us
But let the wound vanish in smoke.
When riches seem slow in collecting,
And prospects look gloomy as night,
There's nought like segars for directing
Our fancy to visions more bright.
Though life seems unpleasant and weary,
And its path unblest by a star,
Yet the smoker will feel, when lie's weary,
That there's bliss in a fragrant segar.

Case of Joo Stransbury.
One of the best founding stories we
have read since the cold weather set in, is
found in the police corner of the Philadel
phia Pennsylvanian, of last Thursday, as
As Mrs. Esther Stransbury (residing in
a court running from Race below Sixth,)
was about to bring a bucket of water
from the hydrant last night, she found an
old basket suspended from the knob of
the front door. Putting her hand into the
basket, she felt something alive and kick
ing-but so enveloped in rags that no fur.
thEr discovery could be made without un
wrapping the object. A piece of paper
folded like a letter, lay by the side of the
animated bundle. M1lrs. Stransbury im
mediately returned into the house, and by
the light of the lamp, examined the billet.
It was addressed to her husband. She
tremulously broke the seal and read as
To JOE STRANSDURY.-Sir: I send
you the baby, which you will please to
take good care of and bring up right, so
that it may turn out to be a better man
than its daddy. Oh Joseph! what a sly
old rake you are!-who would think that
such a staid, sober old spindle-shanks
could be such a tearing-down sinner?
The child is yours. You may swear to
that. Look at it; it is Joe Stransbury all
over. You deceived me shamefully, Jo
seph-letting on to be a widower-but do
a father's part by the young one, and I'll
P. S. Don't let that sharp-nosed wife of
yours see this letter. Gammon her with
somne kind of a story about the baby."
Mr. Stansbury was in the basement
kitchen quietly eating his supper, and lit
tle imagining what a storm was brewing
over his head. The door of the kitchen
was violently thrown open andl Mrs. S.'s
voice yelled out, " Stransbury-come up
hee yo 1vlan; here's a mess for you !"
Teastonished Stransbury hastily wiped
his mouth and obeyed the summons.
"Don't you want to see Nancy ? the
heart-broken Nancy !" cried Mrs. Strans
bury, when her guilty husband hobbled
up into the room.
" Nancy-what Nancy's that ?"-said
the sly old rogue in well igned perplexity.
" Why Nancy, the mother of this baby
that's been hung uIp at y-our door, Mr.
Stransbury. Oh you look mighty inno
cent; but just read that letter and then
look in that basket. Don't be afraid, it
won't bite, it's got no teeth, poor thing !
-you'll knowv it, for, as y-our hussy says,
it is just like you all over. Please good.
ness, Ill expose you before every body."
And in less than five minutes, Mrs.
Stransbury had collected a room ful of
spectators, (half the inhabitaints of the
Court) to witness the pr-ocess of unwr-ap
ping the baby. Anxious expectation sat
on every countenance, as the jealous lady
tore away rag after rag froem the body of
the foundling, the vigorout. movements of
which astonisned everybody. " It is full
of thme devil already," said Mrs. S;" that
showvs it is his-you'll soon see that it is
like him in ever-ything."
At last all the swaddling clothes being
removed, out jumped the baby and made
its escape through the open door.-It wvas

Tr. NEGLECTED Sos.-A certain fat
mer, in England, had an only son, to whonm
he was greatly attached, and never could
think ot' chastising him for his faults.
When he arrived at the age of twelve
years, lie bid adieu to his fauther's house,
and went with a band of gipsies. For
nearly twenty years he was never heard
of. It happened, howvever, that the old
man was under the necessity of taking a
journey a considerable wa-y with a large
sum of money. H~e had to pass a wood,
and as lie wient on, a man rushed from it,
seized his horse, and dIemandedl his mo
ney-. The old man remonstrated with
him.-H~e would not hear, but again d~e
mnanded his money. Most reluctantly lie
gave it up.
The robber, gazing at him, said, " Do
you know mel'
" No," saidi the old man.
"Well," said the robber, " I am your
son !" andI returning his money, added,
" Had you corrected me when young, I
might have been a comfort to you ; but
now I am a disgrace to you, and a pest

hol, says the Pottsville (Va.) Press, oc
curred in Rev. Mr. Johnston's Second
Methodist Church, of that borough, on
Sunday evening last. While the collec
tion was being taken up, a man whose
personal appearance evidently denoted
a shattered constitution, and consequent
misery and suffering, threw into the bas
ket a small paper carefully rolled up,
which on subsequent examination was
found to contain a half dime, the remnant,
it seems, of a wasted patrimony; for on
the paper was written, " This is the last
offour thousatul dollars left me by my
father-Rum and Effects!!" Who the
poor fellow was, or whence he came, is
not known, for he was a stranger, and
evidently a wanderer upon the face of the
Ax ELoPEMENT.-Some astounding
developments, relative to the recent dis
appearance of a young girl, name Brown,
the daughter of a highly respectable abo.
litionist, have been made. It appears the
father had expressed himself as indefferent
as to whether his daughter married a white
man or negro. She took him at his word,
and few weeks since eloped with a black
man, married him, and in his company
went to the different dens of Ann street,
in one of which she was discovered by an
officer, and carried to her father. She is
now in the lunatic asylum. The affair
has been hushed up here, on account of
the respectability of the parties.
We should think there was very little
respectability involved in the matter.
Tim FoOL's REPitor.-There was a
certain nobleman, says Bishop [Hall, who
kept a fool, to whom he one day, gave a
staff, with a charge to keep it until he
should meet with one who was a greater
fool than himself. Not many years after,
the nobleman fell sick, even unto death.
The fool came to see him; his sick lord
said to him: "I must shortly leave you."
" And whither art thou going?" said
" Into another world," replied his lord.
ship. " And when will you come again?
within a month ?"
"Never?" said the fool; "and what
provision hast thou made for thy enter
tainment there, whither thou goest?"
" None at all."
"No!" said the fool; "none at ill?
Here take my staff, for with all my folly,
I am not guilty of such folly as this.
IN AN OuT.-An Irish preacher was
considerably annoyed (as many before
and since have likewise been) by persons
getting up and leaving the Church during
his sermons. Ihis patience being exhaus
ted, he stopped his discourse, and in a
rowdy way exclaimed
" Go on me lad, I've seen the top of
your head, that's enough."
The fellow turned around with an angry
menacing look, muttered
"I'll see you again, sir."
" You had better see me now"," replied
the preacher, "for when I'm in the pulpit
I fight for the Lord Jesus, but when i'm
out of it I fight for meself."
A CLNsrNo Fox.-An English paper
relates the followving:
A farmer had dliscoveredl that a fox
came along a beam in the night to seize
his poultry. He accordingly sawed the
end of the beam nearly through, and in
the night the fox fell into a place whence
he could not escape. On going to him
in the morning, he found him stiff, and as
he thought lifeless. Taking him out of
the building, he threw him on the dung
hill, but in a short time Reynard opened
his eyes, and seeing all was safe and clear
galloped away to the mountains, showing

To illustrate the use of the GALVANIC BELT,
suppose the case of a person adlicted with that ban@

from the application of the GALVANIC BELT. Take

Memphis, TPenn., Fob'y., 1850.
The Facultics, for intellectual abilities, moral
worth and profes~siornl acquirements, will compare
favorably with the most distinguished in our~coun
try. The medical faculty constitutes an anoal
in this or any other country--all of thetm are awa
lecturers and the best of teachers.
Those who will contemplate our geographical
position, and the extent of our population, ca
have no doubt as to the eligibility of our sittatio
for an enterprise of the kind. As to health, Iiela,
ding all seasons of the year, we deny that any
other city has more.
A common error exists in the minds of many
students relative to the place of studyingttmedicine;
those who intend practicing among the diseuaes of
the West and South shoul certaily educate theta
selves at a sc'hool whose Faculty are praetces y
acquainted with those diseases.
That the publie may he sat isfied of the perm
nency of this school, we feel it our duty to state,
that the Trustees and Faculty forma unitiniactioni,
which augurs well for its future success; sed thet
the peculiar internal organization which conneeta
them, cannot be interrupted. ~
