Acr?i?? THE ?rfe."
It was not tho iuot of the theatre |
hoing ft wretched one that BO muohr
snrprised mo, ns that D-should
have one at all. Of all tho unhappy
investments in brick and mortar
?which havo ever oomo under my
observation, that was decidedly one
of the very worst Nevertheless,
traveling companies did occasionally
take it for a while, though I should
not like to affirm that aDy of them
ever got a living out of it.
The performance had begun bo?
lero our arrival, and it was with
some difficulty that wo found nny
ono who ;\?ordd ;oooscnt to toko our
money and admit ns. Tho ill-lighted,
empty look of tho house, with its
tawdry decorations, all faded and
mouldered, was wretched in tho ex?
treme. My attention was far too
much occupied by the chit-chat of
Potts, to allow of my noticing par?
ticularly what was passing on the
stago; but tho acting I know was
ludicrously bad, for it excited in ns
so much merriment that an irruption
into oas -box.of, tho D-popula?
tion was at ono time threatened.
But after iiwlffl? appeared thc young
actress, whom Potts' account had
mado mo anxious to see. Certainly,
I had rarely beheld moro exquisite
beauty of face and figure, or moro
intellfcot?-nofaon,- Her dress, too,
was simple,, .?nd even poor, yet it
gave evidence, of a refined taste,
whieff. j?Hiffed Tile in a girl so situ?
ated. Tlro^inanngerial eye of Potts I
saw her capabilities at a giance, and
for a whilo our merriment was re?
strained, only to bo re-awaked, how?
ever, by thc (intr?neo of the supposed
vampire. "Her father," said Potts,
''decayed gentleman, poor old fellow,
won't let his daughter act .without
bim." lt required all my sj'mpat.hy
to ref?. "n. from laughing outright at
tho riostird I antics ' of tho poor old?
man, who bad had to sacrifice many
a prejudice beforo ho could consent
to allow his daughter to employ her
talents as a means of livelihood.

iaphorettes; making it tho moat effective
invigorating, rejuvenating and blood
cleansing cordial known to the world.
In introducing this new and extraordi?
nary medicine to tho public, observation
leach) us to remark that too little attention
is paid to tho "lifo of all flesh," the blood.
Many diseases, and, too, many complaints,
which have their origin in a vitiated state
of tho blood, aro treated only as symptoms
and results: whereas., if .toe.-remedy had
bcon applied to enrich tho blood and ren?
der it pure, both canso and effect would
havo been removed. Tho Queen's Delight i
is offered to tho alhictod as a sure remedy
for thoso diseases arising from an impure
condition of tho blood. It bas a direct
and specific action upon that thud, and
consequently renders tho blood pure. It
is said, on high authority, that "man no
sooner begins to live than he begins to
dio, aud that tho characteristics of the
living organism are ceaseless change and
ceaseless waste." lt is obvious, therefore,
to every reflecting mind, that unless the
blood is pure, in supplying the waste tis?
sues with material, it must bo thu cause of I
Minumerable ills and constitutional disor- j
ders, such as Scrofula, Rheumatism, He- ?
patio Disorders, Consumption, Inflamma?
tions, Fevers, Ac. Life and health is only
to bo maintained by tho circulation of pure

blood is in tho least vitiated by indulgence
or excess, and whoso constitution is im

ion gave early promise of health and

the Queen's Delight.
The unaccliinatcd and persons traveling
into warm countnos will find tho Queen's.
Delight a great protection from all malari?
ous affection aud diseases which originate

Tho extraordinary and unprecedented
cures performed by tho Queen's Delight
Compound is attracting tho attention ol
every one, not only at home, but abroad.
Tho* merits of this compound aro ticing

what they say of it in Now York: "lt is a
remedy of much importance and value,
exerting an intluence over all thc secre?

all tho various forms of primary and
secondary syphilitic affections; a.so, in

Its properties as e. remedy were li rat in?
troduced to tho notice of the profession by
Dr. Thoa. Young Simons, of South Carolina",
as early as 1828, as a valuable alterative re?
medy in syphilitic affections, and others re?
quiring use of mercury. Dr. Simona' state?
ments havo been endorsed and extended
by Dr. A. Lopez, of Mobile, and Dr. H. E.
Frost, of Charleston. From tlie reports in
its favor, there seeniB no reason to doubt

GERMAN HORSE POWDER !
For all Diseases to which a Horse is Liable.
THE various diseases to which that no?
ble and useful animal, the horse, is
subject, and thc little knowledge Jhat is
known of them by farriers and ignorant
ostlers, have occasioned many remedies to \
be offered to the public under different
forms, with high encomiums, and sanc?
tioned by dignified names. Some of these
are injurious; others, at best, ol little use,
and many entirely worthless, and do not
meet tho want. A good medicine, free
from objections of this kind, has long been
desired by many gentlemen who have va?
luable horses. We therefore offel the only
good medicine-tho trim "GEllMAN
HORSE POWDER." which hr.s proved so
efficacious in all thc diseases, lt is pre?
pared from thc original recipe of Dr. lfei
uitsh, of Germany. Its extra- rdinaryvir?
tues ure attested to hy thousands, and For
fifty years has stood, and still stands, first
in tho estimation of all experienced farm?
ers and agriculturists as the best medicine
for tho horse. It is recommended for
horses foundered by eating to excess or
drinking cold water "when heated, to such
as havo symptoms of glanders or aro ex?
posed to tho infection by being with other
horses, for indigestion, distemper, hide?
bound, drowsiness, loss of appel ito, inward
sprains, debility, wasting id th-?h, sore
I eyes, swelled legs, grease, mangi , surfeit,
old coughs, for exhaustion noni work. It
! carries off all foul humors, purifies and
cools tho blood, and prevents horses be?
coming stiff and foundered. It is a stimu?
lus for weak stomachs, and renders tho
? limbs and skin soft and (ino, giving a
smooth coat to tho hair. Ash for "llci
