A Glasgow merchant, on his death?
bed, sent for a Free Church clergy?
man. Having some fears regarding
his future prospects, he asked the
reverend gentleman, "Do you think,
if I were to leave ?10,000 to the
Free Kirk, my soul would be saved?"
"Well," answered the cautious minis?
ter, "1 couldn't just promise you
that, but I think it's an experiment
well worth trying."
PENURIOUS.-In speaking of a cer?
tain merchant, the other day, a crazy
w.oman (or supposed to be so) said:
"Do you see that man? Well, you
can blow his oui through a bum?
ming bird's quill into a mosquito's
eye-and the mosquito wouldn't
wink!"
PUMPING A WITNESS.-A lawyer,
engaged in a case, tormented a wit-j
ness so much with questions that the ?
poor fellow at last cried for water.
"There," said tho judge, "I
thought you'd pump him dry.

WE FROPOSE to nubli.-h a WEEKLY
PAPER, devoted to the diffusion of
thc principles of religion and thc interests
of thc Baptist denomination. Wc have
been moved to this undertaking by thc
solicitations of brethren in varions por?
tions of this State, as well as of other
States, among the readers of the late
Confederate Baptist, and by our own con?
viction that a paper of a high character
would contribute largely to the intellectual
improvement, the religious progress and
the general welfare of the churches. The
field is large, affording ample room for all
sincere and zealous label ers.
The Baptist will be printed on a sheet
about twenty-two by thirty-two inches, and
will contain twenty-four broad columns,
mostly in Long Primer type, clear and
legible, so that it may bc read with com?
fort, even by tho aged. Its cutir? mecha?
nical execution will bc of the highest order.
Our columns will be enriched by corres?
pondence and contributions from thc
other Southern States, and, occasionally,
from Europe and our missionary stations
abroad. Thc entertainment and instruc?
tion of tho young-especially the child?
ren-will not bo forgotten; and our vene
blo friend, "Uncle ^Fabian," so well and
favorably known tft thc readers of the
Confederate Baptist, will resume Ina labors
in their behalf. In short, we possess all
the facilities requisite to produce a paper
of the first rank. As such, wc offer it to
our brethren, and solicit their generous
co-operation.
The Baptist will be issued as soon as a
sufficient number of subscribers have been
secured.

The Great American Blood Purifier.
TUR rnmrn wi.um
rnilE QUbEN'S DELIGHT, tho g
JL American Alterative and Blood Puri?
fier, is thc mont perfect vegetable com?
pound of alteratives, tories, diuretics and
uiapliorctica; making it thc most effective
invigorating, rejuvenating and blood
cleansing cordial known to the world.
In introducing thia n< w and oxtraordi
nary medicine to tho public, observation
leads us to remark that too lit ile at lennon
is paid to tho "life of all flesh," the blood.
Many diseases, and. too, many complaints,
which have their origin in a vitiated state
of the blood, aro treated only as symptoms
and results; whereas, if tho remedy bad
been applied to enrich the blood and ren?
der it pure, both cause and effect would
have been removed. Thc Queen's Delight
is offered to the afflicted as a sure remedy
for those diseases arising from an impure
condition of thc blood. It has a direct
and specific action upon that fluid, anil
consequently renders the blood pure. It
is saio, on high authority, that "man no
sooner begins to live than ho begins to
die, and that tho characteristics of the
living organism arc ceaseless change and
ceaseless waste." It is obvious, therefore,
to every refiecting mind, that unless tho
blood is pure, in supplying the waste tis?
sues with material, it must be the cause, of
inmimerable ills and constitutional disor?
ders, such as Scrofula, Rheumatism, He?
patic Disorders, Consumption, Inflamma?
tions, Fevers, &c. Lifo and health, ia only
to be maintained by the circulation of pure
arterial blood.
We, therefore advise every ont? whose
blood is in tho least vitiated by indulgence
or excess, and whose constitution is im?
paired by disease and is suffering from
Rheumatism, Liver Complaint, Consump?
tion, Scrofula or King's Evil, Carbuncles,
Roils, Itching Humor of tho Skin, Erysi?
pelas, Skin Diseases, Tetter, Roughness of
thc Skin, Pimples, Blotches, Pains in thc
Rones, old Ulcers, Syphilis and Syphilietic
Sores, Indigestion, Inflammation of the
Bladder and Kidneys, Pains in the Back,
General Debility, and for all complaints
arising from deficiency and poverty of
blood, to use the Queen's Delight.
Females of delicate constitution, suffer?
ing from weakness and depression Oi mind
in consequence of those complaints w hich
nature imposes at tho period of change,
have a pleasant and sure remedy in tho
Queen's Delight.
Children whose fair and ruddy complex?
ion gave early promise of health and
beauty, but too soon become blanched and
pale by some hereditary taint of the blood,
will have the rich hoon restored by using
the Queen's Delight.
The unaeelimafed and persona traveling
into warm countries will find the Queen's
Delight a great protection from all malari?
ous affection and diseases which originate
in a change of climate, diet and life.
The extraordinary and unprecedented
cures performed hy the Queen's Delight
Compound is attracting the attention ot
every one, not only at homo, but abroad.
Thc merits of this compound arc being
felt ami appreciated everywhere. Hear
what they say of i in New York: "It is a
remedy of much importance anti value,
exerting an in Huon ce over all the secre?
tions, which is unsurpassed by any other
known alterati\c. lt is extensively used in
all the various forms of primary and
secondary syphilitic affections; also, in
scrofulous, hepatic a nd cutaneous diseases,
in which its use is follow ed by the most
successful results."
Its properties as a remedy wore first in?
troduced to the notice of the profession by
Dr. Thos. Young Sinn,ns, of South Carolina,
aa early as 182S, as a valuable alterative re?
medy in syphilitic affections, and others re?
quiring use of mercury. Dr. Simons' state?
ments have been endorsed and extended
by Dr. A. Lopez, of Mobile, and Dr. ll. R.
Frost, of Charleston. From thc reports in
its favor, there seems no reason to doubt
the efficacy of tLis medicine iu Secondary
Syphilis, Scrofula, Cutaneous Diseases,
Chronic Hepatic Affections and other com?
plaints benefited by alterative medicines.
