tt ii singular what shifts love wilt make' to
arnomplish it objected Boita, gate and fcat.i
are of little avail faint Cupid' picklock con
trivances hi cunning will deviae way and
ineana to open them all. A young gentleman
had courted fair lady, of New York, and it
waa euppcieed the two, in doe time, would be
come 'one flesh.' Some little quarrel, of a tri
vial nature, aa lovers' quarrela generally are,
occurred. Neither would confess the wrong to
be on their aidepresent and correspondence
were mutually sent back and the match was
hroken off. The young gentleman immediate
ly started for New Orleans to enter into com
mercial business, thinking that distance would
lesson tlia attachment he really felt for the
young Isdy. '
When a woman ia injured, nr thinks she is
injured, by the one she loves, r-ho is more apt
than the male sex, to 'bite off her own nose,'
rs the flaying is, to inflict pain and he revenged
on the offending object. v A gentleman that the
lady once rejected renewed his proposals, and
was accepted within a week after her old lover
had embarked for the South. On reaching
New Orleans he found that distance, instead of
weakening hia attachment, only made the lady
dearer, and he became melancholy and low
spirited. The first letter he received from New
York from a friend of his, announced that his
old Hume was to be shortly married to another.
His course was quickly taker. the next morn
in; saw him on board a packet ship, bound for
The parsage nnfortunntely was long, and he,
poor fellow, chafed and fretted so much that the
pissengcra began to think him deranged, or
else a fugalive escaping from justice. The in
stant the vessel touched the wharf he darted for
the office of hia friend the lawyer. It ia to be
supposed the latter waa much surprised to see
his friend, imagining him a couple of thou
sand miles away. After the usual salutation he
'My dear fellow! you are just in time to see
the wedding. Miss, your old sweet
heart, ia to be married this morning, 11 o'clock.
To tell you the truth, I don't believe there is
much love about it, and that the girl really
thinks more of one hair of your head than of the
fortunate bridegroom' whole body,'
'Good God !' Where ia she to be married
'No, At her father' house.'
'My dear fellow, I I yea no ye, I have
it. Have you any caae coming on in either of
the courts at eleven o'clock!'
'Then fill up a subpoena with the bridegroom's
name. Don't step to ask any questions. It
matters not whether he know any thing about
the parties in th suit. B heavens, Julia shall
be miri;' ,
Hia friend saw his object at once, and prom-
reed to carry on the matter. The aubpeana waa
vmade out and placed in tbe hand of a man to
serve upon the unsuspecting bridegroom the in
stant he waa aeen to leave hia residence, and he
wag despatched in a cab to watch the house.
About ten minutes before eleven, as the soon-to-be-happy
man waa about entering a coach
before the door of hi residence, he waa aerved
with the subpoena.
Can't help it,' said the man in reply to hia
gesticulating about 'not knowing th parties,
'jjoing to be married,' Ac. 'We ahan't reach the
Hall now before eleven won't keep you but
ten minute. If you don't go, heavy fine, im
prisonment for contempt, etc.
The bridegroom, who was rather of a timid
nature, finally conaented, particularly aa the
clerk promised to send a friend ot his who sat
in the cab, wrapped up in a large cloak, to the
house of his bride in expectation, explaining
the reasons ot his absence. The reader can im
agine who this person waa.
F.leven o'clock came, but still no bridegroom.
Tbe guests were stsring at each other the
priest began to grow impatient and the bride
that waa to be, looked pale and agitated, when
a carriage drove up, the bell rang, and 'There
he is!' 'There he ia!' muttered many voice.
A gentleman did indeed enter, whoae appear
ance created almost aa much astonishment aa
that of Edgar Ravenswood in the hall of Ash
ln Caaile, at the marriage of Lucy Athlon, ia
Scott's 'Bride of Lammermoor.' The lady fain
ted private explanatione ensued between her
parents and the lover and th result was that
in ten minutea after, the t wo rr At lover were
joined in the sacred bonds of matrimony, much
to the aatiefaclioa of all.
The bridegroom that was to have been, soon
after made his sppesrsnce, puffing and blowing.
What he said and what he did, on beholding
hia rival, and being made acquainted with the
condition of affairs, waa really tragi-comical.
The story of the tuhpaena shortly after leaked
out, and has created so much amusement, that
the poor fellow declarea be will aue the lawyer
lur 910,000 damages, in subpoenaing him in
case of which he knew nothing, and by which
he lost a wife. It will b a novel suit indeed,
if be should do so.

Ms. OariV! I lelieve it ths uty of every
one to do whkteverin thrir power I ie, for the b'ne
fitoflheir fellow man, and having had pniiive
proof in my own family, of the woinlerful propertiea
of your Depurativa Syrup of Sarsaparilla, I nvst
conscientiously recommend it to the afflicted. We
had the misfortune to l.ise two of our children, by
the breaking out nf ulcerous sores that covered the
face, head and neck, although we had some nf the
most scientific phy.iciens to sttend thi m and had
tried all the known emudics. Including Swaim's
Tanacea, without avail. Another of my children
waa attackeil in Ihe same manner, her face snd
neck waa completely covered; ihe discharge waa so
offensive, and the disease at auch s height, that we

QjT The following eerttta't describes one of the
most extraordinary euret ever effected by emf
application. . .
' PnrtATiXTSBrA, February 10, 1838. '
pOR twenty yesr I was severely sfflktcd with
Tsttbb on ths Fsee and Hesdt ths d isease
commenced when I waa seventeen yesr old, snd
continued until the Fell of 1836, vsrying in vio
lence, but without ever disappearing. During mot
of the time, great part of my fnce was covered with
the eruption, frequently sttended with violent itch
ing ; my head swelled at times until it felt aa If il
would hurst the wellina was ao great, that I could
scarcely get my hat on. During ihs long period
that 1 ws afflicted with the disease, I use.) great
many s plications, (among them several celebrated
preparations) aa well aa taking inward remedies,
including s number of bottles of Swaim's Panacea,
Extract of Sarsaparilla, Ac, Tn fact, it would be
imposatble to enumerate sll the medicines I need.
I was slao under the ears of two of the moat dia
tinguiahed phyaicians of thi city, but without re
ceiving much benefit, and I despaired of ever being
cured. In the fall of 1838, the disease at the time
being very violent, I commenced using th Rote
Ointment, (prepared by Vaughan it Davie.) In
few applicslions the violent itching cessed. th
swelling sbsted, Ihe rruplinn began to disappear,
and before I bad used a jar the disease wss entirely
cured. It hss now been nearly a year and a half
since, and there ia not a vestige of Ihe disease re
maining, except the scars from the deep pit formed
by the disease. It is impossible for me to describe
in s certificate the severity of the disease and my
suffering, but I will be plencd to give s fuller c
connt tn any person wanting further satisfaction,
who will call on me. At the lime I commenced
using Ihe Rose Ointment I would have given hun
dred nf dollata to lie rid of the disease. Since ti
ring it, I have recommended it to several persons,
(smong them my mother, who had the disease bad
ly on her arm,) who were all cured bv it.

'PHIS i to certify thai I was severely afflicted
with Tetter in the handa nnd feel for upwards
of forty years; the disease waa sttended generally
with violent itching and swelling. I applied to a
number of physicians, and used a great many appli-t
cationa without effecting s core. About s year'
since, I spplied the Rose Ointment, which entirely
slopped the itching, snd a few applications immedi
ately cured Ihe disease, which there ha been no
return of, although I had never been rid of it at
any time for forty year. RICHARD 8AVAIE,

ME DXC AI APPROBATION
Of the ROSE OINTMENT, for Tetter.
A LTHOUGH the superiority of the preparation
over all other is fully ea'sblished, the proprie
tor take pleasure in laying before tbe public the
following certificate from a respectable physicisn,
a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr.
Baogb, having found in thi remedy thst relief fr
a tedious and disagreeable sffection which the mesm
within the range of hia profession failed to afford,
ha not hesitated to give it hia approbation, although
the prejudicea ami interest of that profession ait
( pposed to secret Remedies.

I was recently troubled with a tedious herpetic
eruption, which cotered nearly one aiile of my face,
and extended over the ear. Mr. Vaughan, proprie
loi of the Rose Ointment, ohseiviiig my face, insis
ted on my trying bis preparation, of which he ban
ded me a jar. A lihough in common with the mem
hers of my profession, I discountenance and disap
prove of the numerous nostrum palmed upon thi
public by ignni ant pretender, I feel in juatice bourn
tn except the Roe Ointment from that class of ms
dictnes, and to give il my approbation, as it entire
ly cured ths eruption, although it had resisted th'
usu.il application. DANL. BAUGH, M. D.
