From the Watchman: ' J.
THE RAIN.-rA FAB ABLE.
BT WM. 8. LACY.
- The rain, the rain, the blessed rain
Visits the thirsty earth again ;
... Kindly bringing,
With its singing,
Blessings on mountain, on woodland and plain,
Kisses of hope for the parched grain,
Smiles of life to the crisping corn,
Odours fresh to the scented morn,
Tears of joy to the day now-born.
Now, 'tis a patter
Upon the root,
Xike to the clatter
... Of mail and hoof,
When horseman gallop the stony si rect,
Or the leaden hail where foemen meet.
Now, 'tis a whisper
Unto the leaves,
- Soft as the vesper
Beneath the eaves
Of dim gray piles and solemn towers,
Where maidens pure keep holy hours.
Now, tis a gently soothing sound,
- A murmuring in the distance dying,
As a humming bird's whirr when south
Or a dreamy june-bug's flying;
A sweet, yet sad, monotonous strain,
Filling the heart with pleasure and pain ;
Like the mingled feelings an old man knows
When heartsick and weary he seeks repose,
Under the trees where his childhood was spent,
So eager, so peaceful, so inuocunt :
His memory tells of the new delights
That lengthened his days, and shortened his
His memory tells that those joys have flown,
That he is left, alone alone !
Now, 'tis a single sudden drop
Upon the pane,
That makes one start, and muse, and stop
To muse again !
Tet blessed be God for the blessed rain,
Though angry and dark the cloud.
That shuts out the light from hamlet and plain,
While through meadow and mountain,
Over forest and fomtain,
Roll thundering echoes loud !
A mother watches the lowly bed,
W here her suffering darling sleeps,
Caresses the precious golden head,
And silently weeps ! .
With bony fingers and pinched face.
And brows deep furrowed with hopeless care,
They meet in the same neglected place,
The children of want for their scanty fare,
And eagerly clutch each meagre share !
A maiden bows her head ; 6he does not speak.
Fair white- winged pleasures trip unheeded by,
The bloom of beauty fading from her check
The brightness from her eye !
Ah! who would say that such cruel rain
Brings blessing and beauty in its train,
Each drop that falls, adds a bitter smart
To the many woes of a burdened heart,
Tet it beats with a reckless pitiless mirth,
Crushing the flowers of hope to earth !
Hush ! soul, and murmur not,
Trust! though He kill,
Thy woes are not forgot,
Trust ! 'tis His will !
He marks each secret spot,
, Where, in thy grief,
Thou goest to weep and find,
In tears, relief
He knows thy bitter lot,
He keeps those tears in mind,
Loving thee still !
Take hope, my soul !
e'en though thy skies
Though bitter blinding tears thine eyelids fill,
Thy Father's vision is not dimned or shrouded.
He sees and loves thee still !
Take hope, not simply since the poet singeth,
Behind the clouds, the blessed sun still beams,
Nor yet, that through whatever shade sin
The daylight, darkened, gleams :
. But hence take hope; these very clouds that
These very drops that pelt us as they fall,
The lurid bolt, the shaded sunlight, rather,
Are blessings after all !
For Patience, Trust and every Christian duty
Nowln the heart thus humbled, softened tried,
As fairest flowers spring us in blushing beauty
After the storms subside !
Listen, there, to the rain
Singing in saddened strain,
" Soul, never fear again,
Hope for the best ;
Shadows may o'er thee fly,
Clouds gather in thy sky
Still know that by and by
Thou will be blest ! "
The maiden, weeping for the absent one,
Till pale and sud and speechless with emotion,
Thus proves the preciousness of him, though
The strength of pure devotion.
Gaunt want, with visaee lank, and sunken eye,
Teaches the children of his sore oppressing,
The worth of effort, and unceasingly,
To struggle for the blessing !
The mother, bowed beneath affliction's rod,
Learns, as she feels the kindly tribulation,
Comfort in patience, and to trust her God
With hopeful resignation !
And thus it is the clouds that hide
The sweet sunlight, teach us to bide
His will, who hath all good supplied !
And thus it is, the drops that fall
On flower or weed, in hut or hall,
Come with a blessing unto all !
Oh ! let us learn there in the rain,
There is no drop, that falls in vain,
Though harsh the stroke ; 'tis for our gain !
Then blessed be God for the blessed rain,
Refreshing the thirsty earth again,
With its sweet singing
, Blessings on mountain, on woodland and plain,
Colors of glory to fading flowers,
, Perfumed breezes to cool the hours,
Pearls of light to the maiden morn,
Tears, sweet tears, to souls new-born,
Lessons of love to sad and lorn,
Balm of healing to hearts sore torn !

FOR THE SPEEDY CURE OF
Intermittent Fever, or Fever and Ague,
Remittent Fever, Chill Fever, Dumb

for the whole class of Diseases originating-

. is not the only con
sequence of the mias

variety ol disorders arise
from its irritation, in
the malarious districts,
among which arc
Gout, Headache, Blind
ness, Tooth-ache, Ear
ache, Aatarrh, Asthma.
Palpitation, Painful Affection of the Spleen, Hys
terics, Pain in the Bowels, Colic, Paralysis,
and Derangement of the Stomach,
All of which, when originating in this cause put
on the intermittent type, or become periodical.
This " Curb " expels the poison from the blood
and thus cures them all alike. It is not only the
most effectual remedy ever discovered for this
class of complaints, but it is the cheapest and
moreover is perfectly safe. No harm can arise
from its use, and the patient when cured is left
as healthy as if he had never had the disease.
Can this be said of any other cure for Chills and
Fever ? It is true of this, and its importance to
those afflicted with the complaint cat not be over
estimated. So sure it is to cure the Fever and
Ague, that it may be truthfully said to be a cer
tain remedy. One Dealer complains that it is
not a good medicine to sell, because one bottle,
cures a whole neighborhoods
