A 'Woman Who Hab Buried Sis Hus?
bands?Her Longest Interval of Wi?
dowhood Five Years.?On the 30th nit.,
Benjamin Abbott and Mrs. Mary Pratt
were wedded at Smyrna, Delaware. This
is the sovonth timo the bride has been
led to the altar, and the Smyrna Times
prints some interesting gossip concern?
ing her post life. The contracting par?
ties to theso nuptinls, it says, arc well up
the ascending grade to eighty years.
The groom is a quiet, unassuming old
man, a widower, with means enough
(particularly if combined with her in?
come) to meet his not very numerous
wants. The bride was the relict of tho
lateJfex-Sheriff Henry Pratt, of Kent
County, who wos the last anti-Democratic
Sheriff who has filled that office in that
County. Ho was elected Sheriff in 1844,
by the Whigs. His descendants, chil?
dren, grand-children and great-grand?
children, at tho timo of his marriage,
numbered over 156, and yet he had
never then had but ono death in his
family?his first wife. Mrs. Abbott's
names havo been eight in all?Miss Wil?
liams, Mrs. Troux, Mrs. Farrow, Mrs.
Riggs, Mrs. Wallace, Mrs. Berry, Mrs.
Pratt and now Mrs. Abbott. "In every
instance," says the Times, "save tho first,
she has married a widower, some of
them with a goodly number of children.
She, however, has never sustained a ma?
ternal relation by consanguinity. She
was reared in this community, as have
been all her husbands, so far as we can
lenrn, and hence her record has been as
an open book to all her seven com?
panions, yet record, age, nor aught elso
seeems to work fatality to 'the charm
that wins,' whatever that may be?and
to find that out is the rub. Tho fivo
years and over of widowhood that ex?
isted between her last and her present
husband, is the longest she has endured.
This, however, may not be wholly her
fault, os we are certain that in one in?
stance at least sho offered to share her
comfortable home with ono of our most
worthy old citizens, but tho mero propo?
sition filled him with fearand trembling,
and to avoid repetition he hurriedly
inarmed a young lady in her teens,
with whom, and his little prattler, he is
now enjoying the fullest share of domes?
tic bliss. Wo have no intimation, how?
ever, that her numerous conquests havo
been made by open, direct assault. On
the contrary, wo think they have not. It
has been asserted on good authority that
Bhe has confessed to a presentment that
she should have seven husbands. Sho
now enjoys the fulfillment of this pro?
phetic notion, and, hale, seventy-odd,
she wears her bridal wreath with becom?

The symptoms of Liver Complaint arc
uneasiness and pain in the side. Some?
times the pain is in tlio shoulder, and im
mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach
is affected with loss of appetite and sick?
ness, bowels in general costive, and
sometimes alternating with lax. The
bead is troubled with pain, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable loss of
memory, accompanied with painful sen?
sation of having left undono something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining Of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
above symptoms attend tho disease, and

Stomach, bad taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of tho
Heart, Pain in the region of the Kidneys, Despondency, Gloom and
forebodings of evil; all of which are tho offspring of a diseased Liver.

Mouth tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongxc Coated, you arc suffer?
ing from Torpid Liver, or "Biliousness," and nothing will cure you so
jipGedily and permanently.

disease, and if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretchedness
and DEATH will ensue.
