RELIGION--WELT IS ITI
BY BISHOP REBER.
Is it to go to church to-day,
To look devout and seem to pray,
And ere the morrow's sun goes down,
Be dealing slander through the town?
Does every sanctimonious face
Denote the certain reign of grace?
Does not a phiz that scowls at sin
Oft veil hypocrisy within.
Is it to make our daily walk,
And of our own good deeds to talk,
Yet often practice secret crime,
And thus misspend our precious time?
Is it for sect or creed to fight,
To call our zeal the rule of right,
When what we wish is, at the best,
To seo our church excel the rest ?
Is it to wear the christian's dress,
And love to all mankind profess,
And treat with scorn the humble poor,
And bar against them every door?
Oh, no! religion means not this,
Its fruits more sweet and fairer is
Its precept this: To others do
As you would have them do to you.
It grieves to hear an ill report,
And scorns with human woes to sport !
Of others' deeds it speaks no ill,
But tells of good or keeps it still.
And does religion this impart!
Then may its influence fill my heart!
Oh ! haste that blissful, joyful day,
When all the earth may own its sway!
MYSELF AND POLLY CARTER.
Bright is the tint of the Autumn leaf
When first the fell frost nips it;
Smart is red pepper and cider mixed,
To the mouth which gently sips it:
But brighter far than Autumn leaf,
Than Cayenne pepper smarter,
Is the pride of my heart-my own jrue love
My gentle, Polly Carter.
I loved her when a little girl,
And loved her more when older,
And never once shall I forget,
When first my love I told her:
She blushed, and sighed, and turned her head,
(Her eyes were filled with water):
I took her hand within my own
And whispered-" Polly Carter."
She only blushed a deeper red,
And sweeter looked than ever;
My heart it seemed to run a race
With my old "patent lever ;"
I told her that I loved her well,
And that I ne'er would barter
For aught on earth, however prized,
The love of Polly Carter.
I told her that I had a farm
Well tilled was every acre
And that I had a snug farm house
To which I longed to take her:
And told her that unless she'd go,
For life I'd be a martyr
To Cupid's cause, and break my heart
For gentle Polly Carter.
She turned, and oh! how sweet she smiled
And said she loved me dearly:
Then what cared I for aught beside
I was quite blessed or nearly ;
The " old folks" said we might be wed,
And ne'er did I feel smarter,
Than when the parson made us one,
blyself and Polly Carter.
ISSING.-A writer in the N. 0. Picayune
No luxury that the market afiords seems
liable to more sudden changes, and more
unaccount1abli rises and depressions, than
kissing. Cotton can't begini to be a circum
stance to it. Sugar and molasses can't bear
any c ompetitiin with it. We are altogether
at a loss to account for this state of affairs.
Whether it is owing to the climate, to the
season, to the men or to the wvomen, we
know ntot, and should like to know. A very
pretty little girl informed us last night, that
in her opinion, it wvas shameful to make men,
especially good.looking men like we are,
pay so much for a kiss. We concurred,
arnd immediately-came dowvn to record
the estimated value of one smack in Roches.
ter, New York. It will be remembered that
last sumer, a very learned adjudication was
made in our ci'y upon this subject, and
that since that period a legal estimate has
been made in Boston. The tariff of kisses
is now, in Bc ston, ten dollars; in Roches
ter, New York, seven dollars; in New Or
learns, five dollars! Thank Heaven! we
Jive in New Orleans, and from the depths of
our pocket-book pity those bachelors ofI
Boston and Rochester.
rThe editress of the Ladies Repository,
a very sensible and lovable woman we have
no doubt, from the following paragraph, also
on kissing, says:
" Kisses, like fatces of philosophers, vary.
Some are as hot as coal fire, some sweet as
long drawn soda. Stolen kisses are said to
have imore nutmeg and cream than other
sorts. As to proposed kisses, they are not
liked at all. A stolen kiss is the most agroea
ble. We have been kissed a few times, and
as wve are not very old, wve hope to receive
A RO.MANCE IN REAL IFE.-A wedding
took place in Bristol, England, a few weeks
since, under somewhat romantic circum
stances, realizing the old adage, that " Truth
is strange; stranger than fiction." It ap
pears that a sister of Mrs. N., who resides
at Montpelier, some two or three years
since,.married.a merchant, and emigrated to
California soon afterward, wyith a viewv of
bettering their fortunes, taking with her the
likeness of an unmarried sister. The pic
ture happened to be hung in a very conspic
uous part of their house in California, and
attracted the attention of a rich resident of
that district, wvho happened to pay a visit to
the house. He wvas enraptured with the
image of the fair unknown, and exclained
" By Jove, I'll marry that girl if she is to
be found in the world."
He was told where she resided, and lhe
posted to her a note inclosing a present of
forty pounds sterling, and a few days sine
a~knock was heard at theldoor, and on the
young lady going to open it, a good looking,
bronzed-featured gentleman rushed into the
house and gave a chaste salute, exclaiming
that he had come from the other end of the
wvorld to find her, at the same time pulling
out thie likeness which first led him to seek
his attraction. Of course they were mar
ried, and are to "live long and die happy,"

,~ renanhi-That is true nobilitv.
THE graduating class at old Yale, in the
year of our Lord one thousand eight hun
dred and odd, had a meeting the day before
they were to be made into Bachelors of
Arts; and at this meeting it was agreed that
each man should adnounce his intentions as
to the profession he designed to pursue.
Ten years afterwards they would meet again,
and compare the results of the record.
Jenkins had been the fool of the class.
By that good fortune which helps the lame
and the lazy, he had made out to squeeze
through the examinations-those strainers
designed to catch the flats-and he was
about to go forth with as broad a diploma
as the best of his fellows. The president
of the meeting called on the students in
alphabetical order, and each man gave ex
pression to his hopes and views. A smile
rose on every face when he siad,
"And, Mr. Jenkins, what do you mean
Jenkins had an inveterate habit of lisp
ing, which gave additional drollery to his
reply as he answered, "I am goin' to be a
"Ah, indeed; and why so, Mr. Jenkins?"

"In the firth plathe, 'Pithcopal minithers
alwath marry rich wives.
- " In the thecond plathe, the prayers are
all written out.
"And, in the third plathe, the thermons
are very short, and them you can steal."
The theory of Mr. Jenkins was altogeth
er false and absurd ; but the story is true,
and too good to be lost, as showing how
very big a fool Jenkins was, and what
stange notions fools will have sometimes.

door used for various purposes, and through
which he was accustomed to let down a
line, now and then, to catch a fish for pus
sy's dinner. One day having to leave the
line to attend to a customer, he was surpris
ed to see pussy go to it and touch it gently.
This led him to watch her, when presently
a fish caught hold, and Mistress Grimalkin
immediately commenced hauling in the line
with one paw, securing the slack hauled by
placing the other paw upon it. In this way
she at last secured the fish. After that, the
gentleman baited the hook and let her fish

influence over him as to tell upon his whole

reproof, not duly mingled with encouraging
words, that at an early age he longed foi
death to take him out of the world, in which

and he had so often been told of his faulti

often heard him say that "that word saved

TALI.Ar'OMA Co., Ala., Jan. 2, 1852. %
DrAa Sir.:-T send you this to certify to you that your
Extract of Yellow Dock and Sarsaparilla has performed
one o' the most wonderfel eures on me that has ever been
effected on man. I have been afflleted for fotty years withi
eruption.s it my legs antd neet; in 1848 they got so had;
that I had to go on crutches, and In 1849 1 had one-leg
amputated above the knee. In aboutninemonthsafter ihy
other leg broke out in large eating and running sores froir
my knee to my foot. and discharged a great deal of offen
sive matter. Mly groin also broke out In large biles, whielL
discharged much offens-ve matter, and at the same time
my left hand broke out in large runningsores nearly to my
elbow. The misery that I have suffered for the last two,
years I cannot describe to you. I was In such agony that
I nevertrested day or night.
In October last my son brought me one of your bottle
wrappers; I read It, and found record of some wonderful
eures performed by your " Extract of Yellow Dock and
Sarsaparilla." I sent and got two bottles of it, and cam
menced taking it. In two weeks. to my great netonishment,
my sores all became easy. and I could sleep all night,-n
thing I had not done for two years. When I had taken
six bottles, my sores got well as If by exchantznent. I have
now used in all eight bottles of your "Extractof Yellow
Dock and Sarsaparilla." and I contisier myself well.
I entreat'all of the amicted to try this medicine, for I be
lieve it will cure any known disease In the world. Lay
aside all prejudice and just try It, and roclaim its great
worth to suflering natinkind and entrest them to take it, for
it will cure them. 31y ease is well known to a large portion
of South Carolina. Georgia and Alabama, and If on) should
doubt tile above cure, I invite theta to call on me. an4 I
