Speech of Zuchariah Spicer.
On tha question, "Which enjoys the
greatest amount of happiness, tba bach
elor or lb married maul"
Mr, Freiident nd Gentlemen I rise
to advocate the cause of married men.
And why ehould I nott I claim to know
something about the institution, I do,
Let me confront him with uay w'tfa and
seventeen children and decide. ,
High a the Rock Mountaine tower
above the Mississippi Valley, doet the
character of the married man lowers-
bove that of the bachelor. What wai
Adam before he got acquinted with Ever
W hat but a poor, shiltless, helpless, In
significant creature? No more to be
compared with his alier self, than the
mill-dam to the great roaring cataract
of Niagara. (Applause.
Gentlemen there woe a tine, I blush
to ear it, when I to uti a bachelor, and
a more miserable creatura you would
hardly expect to find. Every day I toil
ed baid, and at night came home to my
comfortless garret no carpet uo fire, no
nothing. Everything waa in a clutter,
and the words of the poet,
"Confusion was monarch of all he surveyed."
Here lay a pair of pants, tbrre a dirty
pair of boots; there a play-bill, and bare
a pile of dirty clothes. What wonder
that 1 took re frige at the gaining table
and bar room. 1 found it would never
dogeutlemen, and in a lucky moment 1
vowed to reform. Scarcely bad the prom
ise passed my lips, than a knock was
beard at the door, and in ore Susan
Simpkins after my dirty clothes.
'Mr. Spicer' says she, 'I've washed for
you six months, aud bavn't steu the first
red cent in the way cf payment. Now,
I'd like to know what you are going to
do about ill'
I felt in my pocket-book. There was
ntrvrcd in it. and I knew it well
Miss Simpkins, said I 'i'ts no use of
denying it. I bavn t got the pewter.
1 wish for your sake I bad.'
There,' said she promptly, 'I don't
wash another rag for you.'
'Slop,' said I. 'Susan I will do all I
can for you. Silver or cold fare Lnone
but if my heart and baud will do, they
re at your service.
'Are you in earnest! says she looking
'Never more so,' eaya 1.
'Then,' says she, 'as there seems to be
no prospect of my Retting my pay any
other way, I guess I'll take up with your
Enough said. We were married in
week; and what's more, we bavn't re
pented it. No more atticka for me, gen
tlemen. I live in a good house, and
have somebody to mend my clothes,-
When I was a poor miserable bachelor,
fenllemen, I used to be as thin as a wa
el. Now, I am a plump as a porker.
In conclusion gentlemen, if you want
to be a poor,; reggd fallow, without a
coat to your back, or a shoe to ycur foot,
if you want to grow old before jour time
nd as uncoinfortabe generally, as a
hedgehog done up the wrong waytad
vise you to remain a bachelor; but if
you want to live decently and respecta
bly, get married. I've ten daughters,
gentlemen, overpowering applause and
you may have your pick.
Mr. Spicer eat down amid long-continued
plaudits. The genegous proposal
with which be concluded, secured hiai
Ose or tub HuBBAHDB. A little In
cident becured at the fire yeeteday mor
ning showing the strength (?) of a bus
baud's affections for hia wife, A man
and bis better half stood near a well
the husband had two buckets of water
with which he intended to extinguish
the fire in his shanty and he requested
a passing Cieman to take oue bucket.
At this instant the wife made a miss
steo and fell into the well. -'Your wife
has fallen into the well," said the fire
man. "Never mind." said the 'doating'
The Bible. The Bible must be the
invention of good men or angels; of bad
men or devils: or of God.
' It could not be tbe invention of good
men oraneels: for they neither would
nor make a book and tell liea all the
time thev were writing it. serine, 'Thus
saith tbe Lord.' when it was their own
It could not ne the invention otbad
men or devils, for they could not make
book which commands all duty, and
forbids all sin; and condemns themselves
to all eternity.
I therefore draw thia conclusion: the
Bible must b given by inspiration of
Cheebfulkess or Cubibtuhb. Reli
gion is mistaken by the worlding for a
syatem of rigor and austerity, marking
its votaries with melencholly and sup
planting every genial affection and in
nocent enjoyment. Let those who pos
sess it be careful to rectify this error by
their own example. In their own de
portment, let them evince neither mor
oseness nor waut of courtesy, but the
grateful serenity of a hopeful, patient,
and loving spirit. Let them cultivate
the smile that can shine through sorrow,
and speak those sweet words that heal
as a medicine; and not sicken end re
pine as others, when the desire of their
eyes are taken away with a atroke. For
who has such a right to be always happy,
.and on whom are sncb obligatoins laid
to be ever cheerful, as those who "have
the promise of the life that now is, and
Aa imaginative Irishman gave utter
ance to this lamentation:- 'I returned to
tbe halls of my fathers by night, and
found them in ruins. I cried aloud, 'My
fathers where are theyr and echo re

Keii sous Bottles Fiat. People
are frequently found dead with an empty
buttle beside them, which proves the
danger of an empty bottle, and the ne
cessity for a full one. . .

as tba man said worn be nea nve cue
pills presented to him at otice.-
..The very left-curiosity we bave seen

Sir The Cherry Pectoral Is mnrh inqul
ftJ after. Several of our best Physicians
huve ud it, three of them in tbeir own rata
and always with tbe happiest effects. TIm
nr..,.crous patent mediciiies always be for
them, lead to incredulity in regard to every
new remdv; and it is only afii-r undoubted
evldeacs ol1 value In any erticle.lhat au) thlu
like a general confidence can be eiciteil.
The unrivalled eicellenca of thia combina
tion of agents, (in tbe Chtrrr Pectoral) proved
beyond rsvil by repeated trial under their own
observation, has compelled medical men uJ
picleim abroad its usefulness. It is beyond
II doubt the best general remedy we have to r
the Pulmonary Affections of thy climate, a t
the Sums time wdalive and Mpottorunt a
na combination of properties.
In hope that it will piove its own revard,
