Five O'clock in the Morning.
Tho dew lay glittering on tho grass,
A mhit lay on tho brook;
At the earliest boam of the golden son, |
Tho swallow her neat forsook.
Tho snowy bloom of tho hawthorn.tree
Lay thickly, tho ground adorning;
Tho birds were singing in every bush,
At five o'clock in the morning.
And Bessie, tho milk-maid, merrily sang,
For tho meadows wore fresh and fair;
Tho brcozo of tho morning kissed her
And played with her nut-brown hair;
But oft she turned and looked around,
AH if the silence Boorning;
'Twas timo for tho mower to whet his
At live o'clock in tho morning.
And over tho moadow tho mowers carno,
And morry thoir voices rang;
And ono among thom wended his way
To where, tho milk-maid sang;
And, as ho lingered by her sido,
Despito his comrade's warning,
The old, old Btorv was told again,
At five o'clock m tho morning.
A MIXES' OF TUE BABIES.-Some
time ago, there was n dancing party
given up North; most of the ladies
present nad little babies, whoso noisy
perversity required too much atten?
tion to permit the mothers to enjoy
tho dance. A number of gallnnt
young mon volunteered to watoh the
young ones while tho parente in?
dulged ina "break down." No sooner
hod tho women left tho babies in
charge of the mischievous devils than
they stripped the infants and changed
their clothes, giving tho apparel of
one to another. The dance over, it
was timo to go home, and tho mothers
hurriedly took each a baby, in the
dress of her own, and started, some
ta their homes ten or fifteen miles
off, and wore far on their way before
daylight. But, tho day following,
there was a tremendous row in tho
settlement; mothors discovered that
a single night had changed tho sex of
thoir babies. Observation disclosed
tho physical phenomena, and then
commenced somo of tho tallest fe?
male pedestrianism; living milos,
apart, *it required two days to unmix
tho babies, and as many month:} to
restore tho women to their natural
sweet dispositions. To this day, it is
unsafe for tho baby mixers to venture
into the territory.
How TO Do ur SHOUT BOSOMS.-"Wc
have often heard Indies express a
desire to know by what process tho
fine gloss observablo on new linens,
shirt bosoms, &., is produced, and,
in order to gratify them, wo submit
the following receipt for making gum
Take two ounces of fine white gum
arabio powder; put it into a pitchor,
and pour on it a pint or more of
boiling water-according to tho de?
gree of strength you desire-and
then having covered it, let it sot all
night. In tho morning, pour care?
fully from tho dregs, into a clean
bottle, cork it and keep it for uso.
A table-spoonful of tho gum water,
stirred into a pint of starch, made
in the usual manner, will give either
white or printed lawns a look of
newness when nothing else will re?
store them after washing. Much
diluted, it is also suitable for thin
Sfti&lin and bobinet.
SOUTHERN TEA AND COFFEE.-An
exchange has the following item:
"Attempts at tea culture, in tho
lower parts of South Carolina and
Georgia, havo been crowned with
success, and though only small quan?
tities have been raised, tho fact has
been demonstrated that wo have the
ability to produce on our own soil
that delicacy hitherto peculiar to tho
Celestial Empire. But we will go a
step farther, and it is now asserted
that coffee may also be successfully
and profitably cultivated on the Gulf
seaboard. There is a strip of country
South of Tampa Bay, Florida, some
forty miles in length and thirty in
width, which is peculiarly adapted to
the growth of tue coffee plant, and
all the tropical fruits."
Seeing a wretched looking lad on
the plains on tho Humboldt desert,
nursing a starving baby, a traveler
asked him what tho matter was.
"Wal," responded the youth, '"I

A little lady friend of oars, of somo

THE TRIUMPH OF ART'
MORE TESTIMONY IN FAVOR OF
Heinitsh's Queen's Delight.
EXTRACTS FROM LETTERS: "Tho
Queen's Delight is beginning to
awaken tho attention of our physicians.
Its roniarkablo curative power is seen iu
its wondorful effect upon disease. As a
blood purifier, thero is no medicine liko it
known to tho profession. A gentleman
told mo that his son ha.< been taking tho
Queen's Delight, and is moro benefited by
it than by any other medicine. Ho wants
a dozen bottles."
Extract from a letter: "It iu due to you
to ?tato in this public manner, in order
that tho people may know tho truth, that
I have tried your Queen's) Delight, and
found it not only what you said it was-"a
fruro medicine"-but the best medicino I
nive ever taken for eruptions and general
bad health. I had au eruption all over my
body, with impaired digestion and disor?
dered liver, and havo tried a great many
medicines without any benefit. I havo
taken ono bot t?o of your Queen's Delight,
tho eruption has disappeared, mv appetite
is bettor, my liver and digestion is im?
proved. I am satisfied orig or two moro
bottles will cure mo."
Extract from a letter: "At thc closo of
Uio war, my constitution was shattered. I
could not eat, sleep or perform any duty
whatever, such was my prostrate condi?
tion. Medicino and medical aid J had in
abundance, such was my condition up to a
few months since, when I began the use of
your Qneen's Delight. I have used two
bottles, my constitution is greatly im?
proved, my appetite is good, enjoy refresh?
ing sleep, and am abloto perform my aharo
of daily labor."
Extract from a lotter-Wonderful effect
of only ono bottle: "I havo used only a
half bottlo of 'Queen's Delight* for boils
and eruptions of tho skin and itching hu?
mors of tho blood, which annoyed mo rory
much. I am entirely cured. 1 think your
modicino a valuable ono."
A romarkablo caso of liver complaint and
headache cured by the uso of "Heinitsh's
Queen's Delight:" A lady of unquestioned
worth and reputation voluntarily gives tes?
timony of tho wondorful oflects of this
medicino. She has boon from carly years
a martyr to headaches, caused by imper?
fect action of tho liver, producing intonso
headache and pain overtjho eyes. She han
taken only four bottles, and assures us of
tho perfect euro it bas made. Sho now en?
joys good health.
Still another: "During last spring, I had
been troubled with obstinate chills and
fovor, which, when cured, loft my system
in a wretched condition, blood impuro, and
I was afflicted with an angry, and, as I at
ono time thought, an incurable, cutaneous
eruption over my ontiro body. Tho most
violent remedies suggested failed to work
a cure, until, at tho instance of a friend, I
tried Dr. Heinitsh's Queen's Delight. Less
titan two bottles enrod nie, leaving my akin
in a healthy condition. My general health
is aa good "aB over. For such purnoscs, I
have, ever sinco my cure, unhesitatingly
recommended yon Qneen's Delight."

GEBHAN HOUSE POWDER !
For all Diseases to which a Horse is Liable.
THE various diseases to winch that no?
ble and useful animal, tho horse, is
subject, and tho little knowledge that is
':nown of thom by farriers and ignorant
ostlers, have occasioned many remedies to
bo offered to tho public uuder different
forms, with high encomiums, and sanc?
tioned by dignified names. Homo of these
aro injurious; others, at best, of little nee,
and many entirely .worthless, and do not
meet tho want. A good medicine, freo
from objections of this kind, has long been
desired by many gentlemen who have va?
luable horses. Wo therefore offer tho only
Sood medicine-the true "GERMAN
tORSE POWDER." which has proved so
eflicacious in all tho diseases, lt is pre?
pared from tho original recipo of Dr. Hei
nitsh, of Germany. Its extraordinary vir?
tues are attested "to by thousands, and for
tifty years has stood, and still 6tands, first
in the estimation of all experienced tarin
crs and agriculturists as tho best medicine
for the horso. IL is recommendod for
horses fonuderod by eating to excess or
drinking cold water "when heated, tu such
as have symptoms of glanders or aro ex?
posed to tho infection by being with other
horses, for indigestion, distemper, hide?
bound, drowsiness, loss of appotito, inward
sprains, debility, wasting of flesh, soro
eyes, swelled legs, grease, mange, surfeit,
old coughs, for exhaustion from work. It
carries off all foul humors, purifies and
cools tho blood, aud prevents horses be?
coming stiff and foundered. It is a stimu?
lus for weak stomachs, and renders tho
limbs and skin soft and fino, giving a
smooth coat to tho bair. Ask for "Hei
nitsb's German Horso Powder." For sale

The Great American Blood Purifier.
THE QUEEN'S DELIGHT, tho great
American Alterativo and blood Puri?
fier, is tho most perfect vegctablo com?
pound of alteratives, tonics, diuretics and
diaphoretics; making it tho most effectivo
invigorating, rejuvenating and blood
cleansing cordial known to tho world.
In introducing this new and cxtraordi
narv medicino to tho public, observation
leads us to remark that too littlo attention
is paid to thc "lifo of all flesh," the blood.
Many diseases, and, too.many complaints,
which havo their origin in a vitiated state
of the blood, arc treated only as symptoms
and results: whereas, if tho remedv had
been applied to enrich tho blood and ren?
der it pure, both cause and effect would
have been removed. The Queen's Delight
is offered to the afflicted as a sure remedy
for thoso diseases arising from an impuro
condition of tho blood. It has a direct
and spceilio action upon that fluid, and
consequently renders the blood pure. It
is said, on high authority, that "man no
sooner begins to live than ho begins to
die, and that tho characteristics of the
living organism are ceaseless chango and
ceaseless waste." It is obvious, therefore, j
to every reflecting mind, that unless tho f
blood is pure, in supplying the waste tis?
sues with material, it must be tho causo of I
innumerable ills and constitutional disor-1
dcrs, such as Scrofula, Rheumatism, He?
patic Disorders, Consumption, Inflamma?
tions, Fevers, Ac. Lifo and health is only
to bo maintained by the circulation of pure
Wo therefore advise every one whoso
blood is in tho least vitiated by indulgence
or excess, and whoso constitution ia im
?aired by disease and is suffering from
llicumatism, Liver Complaint, Consump?
tion, Scrofula or King's Evil, Carbuncles,
Boils, Itching Humor of tho Skin, Erysi?
pelas, Skin Diseases, Tetter, Roughness of
tho Skin, Pimples, Blotches, Pains in tho
Bones, old Ulcers, Syphilis and Syphilictic
Sores, Indigestion, Inflammation of tho
Bladder and Kidneys, Pains in thc Back,
General Debility, and for all complaints
arising from deficiency and poverty of
blood, to uso tho Queen's Delight.
Females of delicato constitution, suffer?
ing from weakness and depression ot mind
in consequence of thoso complaints which
nature imposes at tho period of chango,
havo a pleasant and sure remedy in tho
Children whoso fair and ruddy complex?
ion gavo early promise of health and
beamy, but too soon becomoblanched and
palo by somo hereditary taint of tho blood,
will havo tho rich boon restored by using
tho Queen's Delight.
Tho unacclimated and persona travclin;
into warm countries will find tho Queen's
Delight a great protection from all malari?
ous affection and diseases which originato
in a chango of climate, diet and life.
Tho extraordinary and unprecedented
cures performed by tho Queen's Delight
Compound is attracting tho attention of
every ono, not only at homo, but abroad.
Tho merits of this compound aro being
felt and appreciated everywhere. Hear
what they say of it in New York: "It is a
remedy of much importanco and value,
exerting an intlucnco over all tho secre?
tions, which is unsurpassed by any other
known alterative. It is extensively used in
all the various forms of primary and
secondary syphilitic affections; also, in
scrofulous, hopatic and cutaneous diseases,
in which its usc ia followed by tho most
Ita properties as a remedy were first in?
troduced to the notice of the profossion by
Dr. Tbos. Young Simons, of South Carolina,
as early as 1828, as a valuable alterative re?
medy in syphilitic affections, and othors re?
quiring uso of mercurv. Dr. Simona' state?
ments liavo been endorsed and extended
by Dr. A. Lopez, of Mobile, and Dr. H. R.
Frost, of Charleston. From t he reports in
its favor, there seems no reason to doubt
the ofllcacy of this medicino in Secondary
Syphilis, Scrofida, Cutaneous Diseases,
Chronic Hopatic Affections and othor com?
plaints benefited by alterativo medicines.
