ego D. gotquite pious, joined the church
end behaved himself like a candidate for
the ministry, for six mortal months,
what 'a more, during that time he enjoy
ed religion as much as any man what
he meant by enjoyment, it would be
bard to guess, unless it was escorting
the girls to church. By some means
which it is not necessary to repeat, D.
"fell from grace," and an awful fall it
was, not that he does anything particu
larly bad but he has lost all his rever
ence. The other day meeting an old
gentleman belonging to e sect which
teacbes that a man can never fall from
grace, D. began e rallgioua controversy,
which ended in old deacon vowing
that D. ntvtr had anr trace, a Drunosi
tion that be maintained with provoking
pertinacity. Now, the deacon ia a close,
miserly old curmudgeon, with less prac
tical Christianity in his wbold body
than D, has in his little finger, eud our
graceless friend happened to know it;
so when the deacon continued to assert
that D. was never possessed of real pie
ty, the latter gotuettled and finally in
sisted, wi'h soma warmth, that he was
mistaken, adding with the solemnity of
"Now, deacon, I'll (ell you how it
was. Yon are a miserlj, saving old
fallow I am not; and the amount of
piety 1 spent in six months, wnh your
economy, would have lasted a life time!"
The deacon caved in.

Novel Law Suit.
A somewhat romantic suit at law has
just been terminated in Franklin coun
ty. It seems that one John Leacber be
came pierced with the arrow of rupid,
and, wishing to heal the wound by law
ful wedlock, be made propoaals to the
object of bis affections, which, it seems,
she received favorably; but the father,
Mr. Jacob Wyant, being a piudeot man,
fcf much foresight, required the said John
Lescher to enter into bonds of (300,
conditioned that the said John Lescher
should live with h is wife end tieat her
as a kind and affectionate buabsud should
do; bnt the parties, after living togeth
er some months, separated, and this
suit was brought to recover the amount
of the bond. The case was first tried at
the last April term of the Franklin
court, when Judge Kimmel decided the
bond to be invalid. The cese was car
ried to the supreme coutt, end it tvss de
cided that the bond "was good and val
id, and in accordance with the law."
The caie, therefore, ceme up again in the
Fracxlin county courts, when the jury
found a verdict for the plaintiff of
S79 75. The rtsuld of tbia suit may
five a valuable suggestion to anxious
lathers Whose devehtera are a.mshi

of Mr. Wyent's forethought would show
a prudent concern for their daughters'

which their honest frankness deserves.
Men in such stations as many who volun
tarily bear witneM to the efficacy and value of
Chiubt Pectoral, do not wantonly tufla
with, or distort fads, nor overstate their con
victions. Judge then, whether this is not the
medicine to trust when yon must have relief'
for Ihe throat or luni;s; jiivlge too, w hethcr ev

Sir The. Cherry Pectoral is much Inqui
red after. Several'of our best Physicians
have used It, three of them in their own caaa
and always with the happiest effects. Thai
numerous patent medicines always before
them, lead to incredulity in regard to every
new wmedv: and it is onlv after undoubtful
cvideuce ot" value In any article, that any thing
lixe a general commence can De excltetl.
The unri veiled excellence of ibis enmbina
tiuu of agents, (in the Clmry Pectoral; proved
beyond cavil by repealed trial under their own
observation, has compelled medical men to
1 reclaim abroad its tmeMlnrss. It is beyond
all doubt the best general remedy we have fo
the Pulmonary AUeciionao! thw climate, at
the same time sedative and txpectoraat
