May to April.
The following dolicato Httlo poem, by
Philip Freneau, was pnbhshed in a volumo
or ms writings in 1808: .
Without your showers
I breed no flowors,
Each field a barron waste appears;
If you doa't weep,
Mv blossoms sleep,
They take such pleasure in your tears.
As your decay
Mano room for May,
; o I must part with all that's mino;
My balmy broozo,
My blooming trees,
torrid suns their snoots resign.
For April dead
My shades I spread,
To her I owe my dress so gay;
Of daughters three
It falls on mo
To close our triumphs in one day.
Thus to reposo
All nature goes;
Month after month must lind its doom;
Timo on tho wing
May ends thu spring,
And summer frolics o'er her tomb.
GOING TO THITB?D*
There was a small hotel-inn, if
you like-in the suburbs of Cam?
bridge, kept hy a quondam gyp of
St. Mary's, an honest, good-hearted
fellow, jack Gossctt. In the cosiest
of all cosy parlors, a certain set of ns
never failed, about once a fortnight
or BO, to try Jack's grills and rarebits,
?with tho best tap in Cambridge.
And here it was that I listened to thc
following history, which I give, as
near as Jean remember, in our host's
"I was gyp and waiter in Hall at
St. Mary's for nearly twelve years
aye, it can't bo far off-and a many
pleasant, free-handed young gentle?
man I waited upon. It used to bo
moro of an aristocratic college, I
fancy, than it is now; at least, thero
.were few came up to it as weren't
well-to-do, good old families, and so
on. Let me see; thero were tho
Fothergills, of Essex-fine set that
was, and wonderful bands at making
away with money. I recollect young
Edward Fothergill-him as is mem?
ber of T-. That was in forty
eight. And there were the Mark?
"Confound it, Jack, cut the good
old families,' and go on."
"Well, I say thero were a real
nice set of young men up at St.
Mary's, and it was a pleasure to wait
on them; but of all the agreeable,
pleasant, free-spoken masters, givo
me Mr. Harriott. Eh, dear-poor
fellow! I can't bear to think of those
times. It is not long ago, either.
Let me soe. Mr. Perry, you must
have been a freshman just after ho
left, and I am snro you have heard
of him often enough. You all know
what a stir his hearty face and jolly
ways and full pocket made. Lord's
sake! wo used to havo as many SB
thirty in at a time to supper. Night
after night-champagne and moselle,
hock and curacoa, punch and Madei?
ra-you never saw more drinking
and doings-on in your life. Mauy's
the time I'vo waited till near twelve
to see a dozen of them back to Unity
and St. Jude's; and you'd scarcely
believe the rows they kicked up.
I don't mean to say but all of you
kick up shindies enough now, but
I've naver seen or heard anything to
equal Mr. Harriott. Every ono liked
him, for all hi? scrapes; and I be
lievo tho Dean would havo had his
name off the books in a week, if it
had been any one else.
"Well, you see, Mr. Harriott be?
gan in this way to be rather fond of
his glass. Ho never was more than
screwed-just a little gone, you know
-but he could stand a good deal,
for he was an immensely powerful
fellow, and, noraehow or other, it got
to be brandy-brandy-nothing but
brandy. There was Mr. Clegg, of
Unity, and Mr. Tilling, of St. Mary's,
and my master, would sit drinking
brandy together by the. hour; and
the worst of it was, Mr. Harriott
always drunk tho bust part of every
bottle. I could seo it coming on
gradual like. Never easy without
his dram; and first thing of a morn
?MM T-1 1 ll I . .T_-l. I
--r>. ..?WM &. nuuu iu unit HIHI. ....v..,
he'd say, 'brandy and soda; or, wait;
bring tho brandy alono.' Ah, when
a fellow takes to spirits altogether,
it is likely to go bad with him!
"I loft St. Mary's that summer,
and took this berth. Mr. Harriott
used to come and sit in that very
chair, Mr. Perry, aa you're in now;
and still it was brandy-nothing but
brandy. He was for ever going up
to London, and nothing would serve
him but I must go, too, and take
care of him; but, bless y^u, you
might as well havo tried to stop a
runaway express eugiue. Tho only
thing I could do, was to take his purse,
when he left the Piazza Hotel; and
while he walked into this cafe and that
casino, I'd jost step over to Nat Lang
ham's and sit a bit; and by-a nd-by, a
man would comee 'Mr. Harriott wan *
you at once;" and tbere, if you'll be?
lieve me, I'd find him owing for a
conple of dozen of champagne, and
treating every one right and left to
?what they liked. And many a time
I've put tho purse, with what remain?
ed, into bis hands, and swore I'd
wash ruy hands of him; but some?
how I never liked to leave him
altogether, and generally got him
back to Cambridgo, not so much tho
worse as you'd have imagined."
"Besides, Jack, it must have been
pretty pickings for you."
"It is all very well for you young
gentlemen to talk in that way, but
ho was a deal of trouble, I oan assure
you; and, besides, I bad to leave my
business all tho time. Well, it was
at tho end of bis socond October
term, when hu drove round hero in
bi3 curricle-you know his, Brett has
one of them now. They were a cou
plo of devils to drive; but he was a
splendid whip when bo was sober.
Well, I saw he had been drinking;
but, thinks I, bo's more likely to do
himself a mischief than with mo
alongside of him; so up I gets, and
tho man behind. Ho drove all right
till wo turned i uto tho Trnmpington
Road, at the corner tbere, by Hob
son's monument, when -would you
believe it, Mr. Perry? with thoso
beasts pulling and chafing fit to
break the hurness, be gives them a
cut, flings the reins over their backs
-he did, as I'm here-and falls back
in bis seat as if be bad done some?
" 'Lord have mercy on our souls,'
says I; and the groom, he slipped oll* i
behind, and got a sprained ankle for
his pains, and away we went liko thc
wind. I never expected to reach the
ground alive; hut, as luck "raid
.have it, wo caught against the ..ttlo
stone bridgo ut the turning, and
went over into the hedge. I was so
mad, that I don't believe I spoke to
him for moro than a month; but this
will show bow far he was goue. And
I used to bear how ho went to
R-'s-you know where I mean-at
tho river side, aud often enough had
to stay tbero all night, and be
brought back to St. Mary's tho next
morning. Of course, this couldn't
last, and be was rusticated for two
terms. On tho night he was to go
down, n little lad comes to me and
" 'You're to go directly to tho
Tiger. Gentleman ill there.'

CLEANSE out those perilous spots, pim?

a much more formidable shape if allowed
to go on unchecked. Tho QUEEN'S DE?
LIGHT, th? only real blood purifier that
bas ever been invented, as thousands will
to-day attest, is offered to tho afflicted as
a positivo remedy for all diseases llowiug
from a vitiated condition of tho Bystem.
THE LIEE OF THE FLESH IS PUKE
BLOOD. Upon this theory alono tho in?
ventor of tho Quoen's Delight establishes
tho great hygienic law, WITHOUT PURE
BLOOD NO FLESH IS FREE FROM DIS?
EASE. Tho Palo and Shrunken Forms,
Yeilow Faces. Weak Stomachs, Diseased
Livers. Crippled Rheumatics. Nervous
Hypochondriacs, Dyspeptic Victims of
Headache, so common in this country, is
owing entirely to the humors of tho blood.
Vory many other diseases may bo tracod to
bad blood, Scrofula or King's Evil, Erysi?
pelas, Exanthema or Elcvure, a rash or
eruption on female-; Blotches, Totter,
Goitro or Swelled Neck, Syphilis and Sy?
philitic . Sores, Simmons ; Ulcers, Ac.
These cannot bo cured without purifying
tho blood. Now au to the remedy. There
is no other blood purifier that will accom?
plish such positive and extraordinary cures
a? Heinitsh'8 Queen's Delight. You may
take a barrel of extract Sarsaparilla, and
still you will not bo curod; and, as a proof
of it, look around and you will observo tho
country, throughout its length and
breadth, is flooded with compound Sarsa
Eard?as, extracts and syrnps, claiming to
o blood purifiers, and yet wo seo to-day
moro eyidenco of impurity of tho blood
than ever. Why is thia? Simply bocauso
theeo extracts and Sarsaparillas are worth?
less medicine*. (
Tho Quoen's Delight is a new compound,
and is now the great blood medicine; sanc?
tioned by tho profession, patronized by tho
highest dignitaries of the laud, endorsed
"in tho brief period of twelve months,
over 8.000 cases have been treated eo suc?
cessfully as to entitle it to bo the wonder
of tho agc.
For debility, prostration, nervousness,
mental depression, impaired digestion,
IOBS of appetite, restlesness, want of vital
force. Low spirits; it is more invigorat?
ing and strengthening than uil tho com?
pounds of bark or bitters. Aa a liver
mvigorator, it is of inestimable value. AB
a stimulant, it ls safer and suret than all
the rum and whiskey tonics of tho day,
and if you valuo your lifo and health a
pin's feo, avoid those quickening stimu?
lants to tho grave and uso the Queen's
Delight: Ask for Ht iuitsh's Queen's De?
light. This is not the Extract of st el I in
gia or Queen's Delight, nor ia it a Com?
pound S> rup of Queen's Delight, or Sursit -
Sarilla and Queen's Delight, but simply
[einitsh's Quoen's Delight is Hie trade
mark. Ask for this if you want to bo
