RATS.-Rats, it is reported, weigh
on an average a pound each, and each
pound represents five bushels of corn.
A ship laden with corn was recently
discharged at Antwerp, and an im?
menso swarm of rats of enormous
size rushed from tho hold and in?
vaded tho neighboring vessels, ware?
houses and habitations. Tho work- ?
men were obliged to retreat to givo
passage to these unwelcome strangers.
An old colored preacher and school
teacher in Columbus, Ga., was asked,
the other day, what party ho be?
longed to now. Like a "man and a

to no party, sah; loves all good peo?
ple jes alike, and prays for all jes
alike." "Then," said the inquirer,
"you ate a philanthropist?" "No,

A firm desirous of finding out tho
pecuniary status of a person who
wished to purchase goods, telegraphed
for tho ?nf?rinaticn. Tho answer
carno baok, "Noto good for any
amount." So a largo bill of goods
was sold and shipped. Tho note
came due and went to protest. Tho
firm found with disgust that tho
despatch should have read, "Not
good for any amount."
PRAYERS.-Among the items in tho
general appropriation bill passed by
the Pennsylvania Legislature, were
$500 "for prayers for the Senate"
and $300 "for prayers for the House"
-in other words, for chaplains' ser?
vice . Which was a reckless waste
of money, as the members generally
were past praying for, even at the
opening of the session.
CALM VS. CLAM.-In Professor
Phelps' book entitled "The Still

"The stillness of tho hour is the

copies had been printed, that "calm"

FROM THE STATES.-The old
Texans, jvho lived there while it was

QUEEN'S PEUQHTI j
THE QUEEN'S DELIGHT, thc great |
American Alterative and Blood Puri?
fier, is tho most porfect vcgetablo com?
pound of alteratives, tonics, diuretics and
diaphoretics; making it tho most effective
invigorating, rejuvenating and blood
cleanuiug cordial known to tho world.
lu introducing this now and extraordi?
nary medicine to tho public, observation
leads us to remark that too littlo attention
is paid to the "lifo of all flesh," the blood.
Many diseases, and, too, many complaints,
which have their ongiu tn a vitiated state
of tho blood, aro treated only as symptoms
and results; whereas, if tho remedy had
been applied to enrich tho blood and ren?
der K pure, both cause and effect would
have bten removed. Thc Queen's Delight
is offc,rod to the alilictcd as a sure remedy
for those diseases arising from an impuro
condition of tho blood. It has a direct
and .sp?cifie action upon that thud, and
consequently renders tho blood pure. It
is said, on high authority, that "man no
sooner begins to live than ho begins to
dio, and that tho characteristics of the
living organism are cea-voless chango and
ceaseless waste." It is obvious, therefore,
to every reflecting mind, that unless the
blood is*pure, in supplying the waste tis?
sues with material, it must be the cause of
innumerable ills and constitutional disor?
ders, such as Scrofula, rheumatism, He?
patic Disorders, Consumption, Inflamma?
tions, Fevers, Ac. Lifo and health is only
to be maintained by the circulation of pure
We therefore advise every ono whoso
blood is in the least vitiated by indulgence
or excess, and whoso constitution is im
?aired by diseaso and is suffering from
Ihoumatism, Liver Complaint,1 Consump?
tion, Scrofula or .King's Evil, Carbuncles,
Boils, Itching Humor of tho Skin, Erysi?
pelas, Skin Diseases, Totter, roughness of

Bones, old Ulcers, Syphilis and Syphilictic
Sores, Indigestion, Inflammation of tho
Bladder ami Kidneys, Paius in thc Back,
General Debility, anti for all complaints
arising from deficiency and poverty of
blood, to uso tho Queen's Delight.
Females of elelicato constitution, suffer?
ing from weakness anet depression of mind
in consequence of thoso complaints which
nature imposes at tho perioel of change,
have a pleasant and sure remedy iii the
Children whose fair ami ruddy complex?
ion gavo early promise of health and
beauty, but too soon become blanched and
pale by some hereditary taint of tho blood,
will have tho rich boon restored by using
tho Queen's Delight.
Tho unaccliiuated and persons traveling
into warm countries will finel the Queen's
Delight a great protection from all malari?
ous affection and diseases which originate
in a change of climate, diet anti life.
Tho extraordinary and unprecedented
cures performed by tho Queen's Delight
Compound is attracting tho attention of
every one, not only at home, hut abroad.
Thc 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 importance omi value,
exerting au influence over all the eecre
tious, which is unsurpassed by any other
known alterative. It is extensively usedin
all tho various forms of primary and
secondary syphilitic affections; also, in
scrofulous, hepatic and cutaneous diseases,
in which its uso is followed by the most
Its properties as a remedy were first in?
troduced to tho notice of tho profession by
Dr. Tkos. Young Simons, of South Carolina,
as early as 1828, as a valuable alterative re?
medy iii syphilitic affections, and others re?
quiring uso of mercury. Dr. Simons' state?
ments have been endorscel and extendeel
by Dr. A. Lopez, of Mobile, and Dr. II. B.
Frost, of Charleston. From the reports in
its favor, there seems no reason to doubt
tho efficacy of this medicino in Secondary

Chronic Hepatic Affections and other com?
plaints benefited by alterativo medicines.

" HEINITSH'S CELEBRATED
GERMAN HORSE POWDER !
For all Diseases to which a Horse is Liable.
nnBE various diseases to which that no
I hie and useful animal, thc horso, is
subject, and the little knowledge that is
known of them by farriers and ignorant
ostlers, havo occasioned many remedies to
bo offered to the publie under different
forms, with high encomiums, and sanc?
tioned by dignified names. Some of these
aro injurious; others, at best, of little use,
ami 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. " Wc therefore oiler thc only
good medicine-thc true "GEB M AN
HOPSE POWDER." which has proved so
efficacious in all tho diseases, lt is pre?
pared from thc original recipe of Dr. llei
nitsh, of Germany. Its extraordinary vir?
tues aro attested "to by thousauds, and for
fifty years has stood, ?nel still stands, first
in thc estimation of all experienced farm?
ers atid agriculturists as the best medicine
for the horse. SX is recommended for
horses foundered by eating to excoss or
drinking cold water when heated, to such
as have symptoms of glanders or aro ex
fiosed to the infection by being with other
torses, for indigestion, distemper, hide?
bound, drowsiness, loss of appetite, inward
sprains, debility, wasting of flesh, sore
eves, swelled legs, grease, mauge, surfeit,
edd coughs, for exhaustion from work. It
carries oft' nil foul humors, purities and
cools tho blood, and prevents horses be?
coming etift'and foundered. It is a stimu?
lus for weak stomachs, and renders tho
limbs' anil skin soft and fine, giving a
smooth coat to tho hair. Ask for "Hei
