I Owe No Man A Dollar.
BY CHAS. P. SHIRAS.
Oh, do not envy, my own dear wife,
Th wealth of the next door neighbor, .
But bid m still to be of stout heart,
And cheerfully follow my labor.
IQYou must know the laat ot those little debts
That have been our Honoring sorrow,
Is paid tbl night; ao we'll both go forth
With happier heart to-morrow. ,
. Oh, the debtor la but a shame faced dog.
With the credit t's nam on the collar:
While I am a king, aod you are a queen,
' We owe no man a dollar I
. Oor neighbor you saw lo hi, conch to. day,
With bis wliend his flaunting daughter,
', Wblla we sat down to our coverlets brd,
'l loaorustandacuo of water;
. I saw that the tear-drop stood In your eye.
Though you tried your best to conceal it
I knew that tbe eontrastreached your heart,
And yon could not help but feel It;
But knowing now thatour scanty far
Ha freed my neck from the collar,!
Ton will join my laugh, and help mo shout,
For we owe no man a dollar!
This neighbor, whose show has datzeled your eyes,
In faot is a Wretched debtor;
Ipity him oft in my very heart,
And wish that his I t was better.
Why, tbe man 1 the veriest slave alive,
. por bis dishing wife and daughter
Wil I live in stj le, though ruin should corse
Bo he goe like a lamb to the slaughter, .
But he feels it tbe tighter every day,
That terrible debtor' collarl
Ob. what would he giv. could he say with ui,
That he owed no man a dollar?
Ton seem amaied, bat I'll tell yon no more;
Within two hour I met him.
Sneaking away with a frighted air,
As if a fiend bad beset blm;
1fet he fled from every worthy man,
Whom I met with tbe greateat pleasure
. Whom I called by name and forced to atop,
Though he said he was not at leisure;
He held my lastnotel so I held him fart
Till he freed my neck from the collar;
Then I shook my bead as I proudly said,
"Now I owe no man a dollar I"
Ah, now you smile, for you feel the force
Of the truth I have been re; eating;
I knew that adownrlgbt, honest heart
Within that breast was beating.
To-morrow I'll rlie with a g.ant'i strength,
To follow my dally labor;
But, re wa sleep, let us humbly pray
for our wreiched next door neighbor;
And we'll pray for the time when all shall be free
From the weight of the debtor' collar!
When the poorest shall lift up his voice and cry,
"Now 1 ow no man a dollarl"
BY VIRGINIA F. TOWNSEND.
"If I could only live my life over again,"
(aid tbe old nan, aa he plunged bis bands into
bia deep coat pockets and looked up at tne or-
floe celling with a elgb , "it tbould be a very dif
ferent lite from what it baa been. I would not
cive all the joy of mv voutb, and all tbe strength
of my manhood, to getting lich catch me!
d nave good out 01 my me ana ao eome, too,
Instead of toiling early and late, and taxing
brain, and wen lug my nt ret over r.t'rjad divi
denda, and bank, lock, over investments in lead
and coal mines, over real e'to that is to ootne
down bere and go up there. No it isn't tbe three
score years thai areon my bead that naveoieacn
ed my hair and wrinkled my forehead so; it's
the wear and tear of watching the market, and
forestalling the changes, aod looking out for
tbe right time to oome down with a bargain.
overheard one man say to another, as I got
into tbe omnibus last night "There goes old
Oraineer eood for million and a half luckv
dog!" and I said to myself, "Are you a lucky
dog, Tom Grainger? No! Of all men you are
the most unlucky one. You've paid down your
youth, your manhood, your health, your peace
of mind, every faculty God gave you to live,
and to enjoy you've paid it all down for this
million and a half of dollars, and it's a poor
bargain after all!"
"It don't do any good to fume and fret now;
but if I could live my life over again, I'd never
stand where I do this day; I'd lay up eome bet
ter treasures for my old ago than a million and
half of money. I'd lay up treasures of blessed
memories of some good done to others of hu
man hearts made happier of human souls com
lorted, and rejoiced because of me! Ifloould
only live my lile over againl" and the old man
settled farther back in bis chair and groaned
heavily as be looked back over the years of his
past barren, and cold, and unclothed, as they
rose ud before bim.
And yet be clutched bis million and a half,
and carried it with bim to the last hour of bis
life. ' He didn't rise np that day and go out, and
flud the widow and the fatherless, and gladden
their hearts with a part of tbe wealth which be
did ' not need. It was not too late then to set
about doing good. Ia tbe ten yean more of life
which God bad appointed bim, ne migbt nave
scattered blessings, many and bountiful as sum
mer showers; and tbe cold and Darren day mignt
bave been orowned with a sunset so radiant and
glorious that it would have redeemed tbe faded
morning tbe wasted noon.
Hut tbe old fashion and tbe old habits beid
him in iron bondage still, and tbe rich old man
went down to bis grave with bis aimless, un
fruitful, querulous "if."
"If I'd never began this sort of life, I'd never
live it for a day," murmurs tbe fashionable
wile and mother, as she walks np and down ber
elegant parlors, swinging tbe tassels of morning
robe betwixt ber jewelled fingerr; and tbe
weary, dissatisfied expression of ber face telle
its own story of thertired, restless heart beneath
it. ."I know well enough it's a miserable, wast
ed life we're all leading this dressing and go
ing to parties, and giving them that this con
stant striving to be 'stylish,' and keep one's po
sition, la a foolish and sinful thing. I'm sick
and ashamed of it. It's ruining cur children.
It will make spendthrifts of our boys, and silly,
fashionable dolls of onr girls. If we bad never
begun this foolish plan of keeping up with our
neighbors, or 11 1 could only go back ten years
in my ale : Hut there's no way or getting out ol
It now. All our acquaintances would stare at
us, and laugh at ns, and the children would bo
miserable: and tbe only way to effect any
change is to go off and bury ourselves in the
country, away from all influences and stimu
lants of our present life; and that can't be
thought of- I wish I knew what to do, or where
to turn.- If I bad only commenced different'
And tbe wite and mother rung ber bands,
and tbe charges, and tne children committed to
her, for good or lor evil, went on the ways of
folly and vanity, for good impulses never bring
forth good fruits, unless tney harden into fixed
principles of action; and what rudder to human
oul adrlit on the wild and stormy waters ot
life is an aimless and purposeless if?
"If," says tbe young man, full of dreama and
ardor, "I could only have some grand, heroio
career! If I could only do something to benefit
my race, and send my name shining down tbe
future ages, great and honorable, a benefaotor
to homanity-a blessing to my agel If I could
only see a glorious future before me!"
And alaal the youth does not look upon that
sweet and tender Face which shines down to us
across the sluacberlns centuries, that Face, tho'
it oame on earth to be tbe oue Hope and Healer
of our humanity, aougbt no biRh.honorable sta.

and was lilted up only upon Calvary
"If 1 only bad something to do," says the
young girl in the first blooming years of her
womanhood, "i. should love to crown myself
with all which poets aod good men say is sweet
and noble, and tender In womant but dear me
there Is nothing I oan find hero, and now in

And la the shelter of that young girl's "quiet

The Panama Pearl Fisheries.
The Panama (New Grenada) Sfar, of April
24th, gives an account of the Pearl Fisheries of
Panama, in the form of a communication from
a correspondent. We copy:
Tbe Pearl oyster abounds, not only at the
islands, but all along tbe shores of the main
land; and even from the yet imperfect explora
tion of this coast, we are inclined to tbe belief
that a series or deposits lay from the Gulf of
Darien even to that of California. We know
that in the waters of tbe latter place, and among
the shores of Central Mexico and Costa Rica,
fisberB of shells bave, for a length of time, en
joyed the most profitable employment, though
we are not jet aware that pearls 0: any conse
quence have ever been discovered. From tbe
province of Cblnnul several shipments Dave been
at sundry times made, by merchants of this
town, of shells extracted from deposits in that
neiehborbood; and boatmen who bring tbe ordi
nary table oyster to this market, assert that
banks of the pearl-bearing molluscs, at not
very distant intervals, abound in every direo
tion on tbe coast of this State.
The extraction of this commodity has, how
ever, not been prosecuted with any vigor ,in con
ecaoence of the fear entertained for sharks,
sword-fish, alligators, and other ravenous moo
stera which Infest these shores, but wbicb are
so comparatively scarce at tbe islands as not to
create great alarm amoogst toe divers, seve
ral accidents wbicb occurred some years ago
caused too much panic to induce any further at'
tempt along the shores; but it may with safety
be hoped that aoien'ific appliance will soon over
come these obstacles aod frustrate tbe endeav
ors of the pea enemiea of man.
We do not aee why tbe aystema pursued at
Ceylon and In the Persian Gulf could not be
made adaptable to answer our use: and we re
gret that we are not sufficiently versed la these
systems to anfold them at this point. In fine,
it may be interesting to know that tbe value of
tbe pearl oteter shell consists etiuny in its
nacreous excellence. Tbe email shell, of which
many thousands are taken out and cast away,
are or complete usoiessnesa, whilst tne tun
grown and well matured shells, rich in their Iri
descent beauty, are of high estimation and of
superior market worth.
Betrothal of the Princess Alice.
[From the London Times to May 4.]
Tbe marriage of Her Majesty's seconddaugh
ter.the Priucess Alice, is an event which will re
new the good will which the British people feel
towards ibe reigning family. For four and
twenty years one sovereign hae aat on the throoe
of these kingdoms; a generation has grown np
which Knows no other, in mat time ot daoarers,
many causes of discontent aod iuternal diwen
ston bave passed away, and It goay be said that
there exiata no government, whether monarchi
cal or republican1, wbioh enjoys more completely
the sanction of tne governed. 10 cut attach
ment to the throne on the ground of political
satisfaction or material prosperity may not ac
cord with tbe notions of some loyalists; but It
is the surest and most permanent basis which a
ruler can hope for. Tbe gopd will of tbe Enelish
people to the reigning bouse, though partly tbe re
suit of education and habit, ia certainly, in these
times, chiefly owing, tbe belief that the preaent
aov ereign baa done ber best to fulfil the duties
uaditional to her station, and to advance the in
teresta ot tbe State.
There ia no elacs in tho community which
feels jealousy or dislike of tbe Court, and con
sequently the news that a daughter of the Royal
house ia about to be allied with an ancient and
respectable reigning family, and that tbe match
baa been formed by tbe mutual inclinations of
the pair, will be received with sincere satisfac
tion. The marriage between Prince Louia and
the Princass Alice will, at any rate, not be one
of those unions arranged by diplomatists and
confirmed by family treaties, in which the per
sons most nearly interested have no voice, and
must meet for the first time when the die has
been irrevocably oast, and they are united for
good or for evil through life. The German
Prince and the English Prinoess have become
mutually attached, and marry as persona in a
private station marry to further their own hap
piness. Happily the times are paat when dy
nastio alliances were thought necessary to se
cure a nation's greatness, and Parliament will
display its good will and generosity as much as
if the Priu cess' husband had been chosen by
Ministers ot State, for purposes of the most sub
Proportionate Population of Upper and Lower
[From the Toronto Leader.]
Although the returns of the personal census
are not yet complete, the general result may be
stated with sufficient accuracy ior all practical
purposes. Tbe total population of United
Canada will not txoeed 9.7UO.U00; and the ex
cess of population in Upper over that of Lower
Uanada win not be more man iou.uuu souls.
The increase during tbe last decade has been
about forty per cent, in Upper, and thlrtv ner
cent in Lower Canada.
The population of Upper Canada does not
oount up as had been predicted by persons who
asserted the disproportion of the population to
be 4uu,uuu considerably more than twice what
it really is For ourselves, we are not disap
pointed at the result. We showed, before the
census was taken, that the estimates based up
on the increase of the previous deoade being
maintained during tbe period oovered by the
late census were necessarily erroneoua. Tbe
per centage of increase, when a email number
has to be dealt with, Is larger than that of a
arger number, though tbe positive increase be
tbe same. This was a reason why the percent
age of the previous decade could not be main
tained. 1 ben there were tne railing on in im
migration and the increase of emigration from
Upper Canada to be taken into account. Bring
ing these elements into our estimate, we corns
to the conclusion that those who went upon the.
assumption that the increaee ol tbe previous
decade would be maintained would be 300,000
over the mark. The returns show that we were

A compound remedy, designed to bo the most
effectual AUtratit that can be made. It is
a concentrated extract of Para Sarsaparilla,
so combined with other substances of still
greater alterative power as to afford an effee
tive antidote for tho disease Barsaparilla is
reputed to cure. It is believed that auch a
remedy is wanted by those who suffer from
Strumous complaint, and that one which will
accomplish their cure must prove of immense
service to this large class of our afflicted fellow
citizens. How completely this compound will
do it has been proven by experiment on many
of the worst cases to be found of the following

This compound will be found a great pro
motor of health, when taken in the spring, to
expel the foul humors which fester in the
blood at that season of the year. By the time
ly expulsion of them many rankling disorders
are nipped in the bud. Multitudes can, by
the aid of this remedy, spare themselves from
the endurance of foul eruptions and ulcerous
sores, through which tho system will strive to
rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to do
this through the natural channels of the body
by an alterative medicine. Cleanse out the
vitiated blood whenever you find its impurities
bursting through the skin in pimples, eruptions,
or sores ; cleanse it when yon find it is ob
structed and sluggish in tho veins ; cleanse it
whenever it is foul, and your feelings will tell
you when. Even where no particular disorder
is felt, people enjoy better health, and live
longer, for cleansing the blood. Keep the
blood healthy, and all is well ; but with this
pabulum of life disordered, thcro can be no
lasting health. Sooner or later something
must go wrong, and the great machinery of
life is disordered or overthrown.
Sarsaparilla has, and deserves much, the
reputation of accomplishing these ends. But
the world has been egregioualy deceived by
preparations of it, partly because the drug
alono has not all the virtue that is claimed
for it, but more because many preparations,
pretending to be concentrated extracts of it,
contain but little of the virtue of Sarsaparilla,
or any thing else.
During lato years the public Lava been mis
led by large bottles, pretending to givo a quart
of Extract of Sarsaparilla for one dollar. Most
of theso havo been frauds upon the sick, for
they not only contain little, if any, Sarsapa
rilla, but often no curative properties whatev
er. Hence, bitter and painful disappointment
has followed the use of tho various extracts of
Sarsaparilla which Hood tho market, until the
name itself is justly despised, and has become
synonymous with imposition and cheat. Still
wc call this compound Sarsaparilla, and intend
to supply such a remedy as shall rescue the
namo lioin tho load of obloquy which rests
upon it. And wo think we have ground for
believing it has virtues which are irresistible
by tho ordinary run of the diseases it is intend
ed to cure. In order to securo their complete
eradication from the system, the remedy should
bo judiciously taken according to directions on
