Philadelphia,,April 9, 1646.
Last August a year, 1 caught a violent cold, iu
cousequeuce of getting wet in u shower of rain.
A circumstance so common gave me no immediate
concern, supposing that 1 should soon get rid of it.
On the contrary, however, I daily grew worse; a
violent cough set in, tlien paiu in my breast and
.between my shoulders. I now suffered great op
pression from the great secretion of purulent mat
ter in my lungs. I became greatly alarmed ; and
my friends considered my situation extreme))
critical, tho more so as loss of appetite, hectic
fever, and night sweats rendered mo as weak as
a child, and at night the sweat literally poured off
me! This was my condition vheu 1 commenced
using " Thomson's Compound Syrup of Tar and
Wood Naphtha." 1 procured one bottle, aud ex
perienced so much benefit that 1 resolved to con
tinue it. It is now six months since 1 ceased using
the medicine, and the cure remains perfect. 1
firmly believe this medicine is far superior to
every other remedy for Consumption of the Lungs.

Wild Cherry Bitters will restore the most confirm
ed invalid to health. Where either these effects
are necessary to the restoration, the " Bitters "
will be found to possess every ijuality desired.
They have been used already with the greatest
success, in many obstinate cases of impurity of the
blood, nervous irritation, Dyspepsia, low spirits,
Sorofu'a, palpitation of the heart, chronic head
ache and Rheumatism. Tlicy are indeed a happy
combination of powerful, yet safe and salutary
vegetable remedies, of a sterling and unimpeach
able reputation. They have won their popularity
solely by their intriusic merits, and that they have
been successful, numerous certificates in the
hands of the proprietor, and the greatly iucreasing

1 The public have had full proof of their integrity and
responsibility. But such has tieeu the great and
pressing demand for their I EAS of late, that ihey
have been obliged to enlarge, to a great extent,tneir
two principal establishments in New York, via:
They moreover possess facilities, ia relation to the
Tea Trade, in a very abundant degree, and doubt
less, superior to any other Tea Concern in America.
Their scrupulous regard to all principles that lend
to elcvato tho character of a large house, iu well uu
derstood, and has already secured them a connec
tion, probably, larger than all other Tea Establish
ments united, and they consequently are determined
to sell Teas purer, more fragrant, and pexfret for
the prices, in the aggregate, than any house iu the
world?China excepted.
They most zealously invite the attention ol the in
habitants of WASHINGTON, D. C., to their
Agency, where tho following assortments are always

Not no the expatriated Native, amazed
supporter of Mis* Tox'u swooning form, I
who, coming straight up stairs, with a po
lite inquiry touching Miss 1 ox's health
(In exact pursuance of the Major's mali
cious instiuctions), hail accidentally arriv
ed in the rery nick of time to catch the >
delicate burden in his arms, and to receive I
the contents ?f the liitle watering pot in |
his rhoe ; both of which circumstances, (
coupled with his consciousness of being
closely watched by the wrathful Major, j
who had threatened the usual penalty in
regard of every hone in his skin in case of
failure, combined to render him a moving
spectacle of mental and bodily distress.
For some moments, this afflicted foreign
er remained clasping Miss lox to his heart
with an energy of action in remarkable op
position to his disconcerted face, while that
poor lady trickled slowly down upon him
the very last sprinklings of the watering
pot, as if he were a delicate exotic (which
indeed he was), and might be also expected
to blow while the gentle rain descended.
Mrs. Chick, at length recovering a sufficient
presence of mind to interpose, commanded
him to drop,Miss Tox upon the sofa and
withdraw; and the exile promptly obeying;
she applied herself to promote Miss lox s
recovery. L
But none of that gentle concern which
usually characterizes the daughteis of Eve
in their tending each other; none ot that
free-masonry in fainting, by which they are
generally bound together in a mysteiious
bond of sisterhood, was visible in Mrs.
Chick's demeanor. Rather like the exe
cutioneer who restores the victim to sensa
tion previous to proceeding with the tor
ture (or >vas wont to do so in the good old
times for which all true men wear perpetu
al mourning), did Mrs. Chick administer
the smelling bottle, the slapping on the
hands, the dashing of cold water on the
face, and the other approved remedies.?
And ?lien, at length, Miss Tox opened her :
eyes, and gradually became restored to con
suiousness, Mrs. Chick drew off, as from a j
criminal, and i< ersing the precedent of the (
murdered kii. Denmark, regarded her
nu>re in anjjer ilian in sorrow.
"Lucretia I1' said Mrs. Chick, "I will not
attempt to disguise what I teel. My eyes
ere opened, all at once. 1 wouldn't have
believed this if a saint had told it to me.
1 am foolish to give vcay faintncbs," Miss
Tox faltered. "1 shall be better presently.'
"You will be better presently, Lucretia'"
repeated Mrs. Chick, with exceeding scorn.
''Do you suppose lam blind? Do you
imagine I am in my second childhood ??
No,?Lucretia! I am obliged to you !" |
Miss Tox directed an imploring, helpless
kind of look towards her friend, and put
her handkerchief before her f-ce.
"If any one had told me this yesterday,
iaid Mrs. Chick with majesty, "or even
half an hour ago, I should have been
tempted, 1 almost believe, to strike them t<>
ihe earth. Lucretia Tox, my eyes are open
ed to you all at once. The scales h< re
Mrs. Chick cast down an imaginary pair,
such as are commonly used in grocer's shops:
"have fallen from my sight. The blindness
of my confidence i* past, Lucretia. It haa
been abused and played upon, and evasion
is quite out of the question now, 1 assuie
^ ?"Oh ! to w I .?i do you allude so cruelly,
my love ?" nuked Miss lox thioiigh hei
"Lucretia;" said Mrs. Chick, "ask your
heart. I must entreat you not to address
me by any such familiar term as you have
just used, if you plea e. I have some self
respect left though j ou may think othcr
"Oh, Louisa !" cried Mis Tox. "How
can you speak to me like that r"
"How can I speak to you like that r re
torted Mrs. Chick, who, in default of hav
ing any particular argument to sustain her
self upon, relied principally on such repe
titions for her most withering effects. "Like
that! You may well say like that indeed.
Miss Tox sobbed pitifully.
"The idea!" said Mrs. Chick, "of your
having basked at my brother's fireside, like a
serpent, and woui I yourself, through me,
almost into his ct . fidence, Lucretia, that
you might, in secret, entertain designs upon
him, and dare to aspire to contemplate the
possibility of his uniting himself to you!
Why it is an idea," said Mrs. Chick, with
sarcastic dignity, "the absurdity of which
almost relieves its treachery."
4iPray, Louisa," urged Miss Tox, 'do
not say such dreadful ibings."
"Dreadful things !" repeated Mrs. Chick.
?'Dreadful things. Is it not a fact, Lucre
tia, that you have just now been unable to
command your feelings even before me, j
whose eyes you had so completely closed. |
"1 have made no complaint," sobbed
Miss Tox. "1 have said nothing. If I have
been a little overpowered by your news,
Louisa, and have ever had any lingering
thought that Mr. Dombey wbs inclined to
be particular towards uic, surely you will
not condemn me."
"She is going to say," said Mrs. Chick,
addressing herself to the whole of the fur
niture, in a comprehensive glance of resig
nation and appeal. "She is going to
I know it?that 1 have encouraged her
"I do n't wish to exchange reproaches,
dear 'Louisa," sobbed Miss "lox, "nor do I
wish to complain. But in my own defence?
"Yes," cried Mrs. Chick, looking round
the room wiili a prophetic smile, "that is
what she's going to say. 1 know it. You
had better say it. Sav it openly ! Be open
Lucretia Tox," said Mrs- Chick, with des
perate sternness, "whatever you are."
"In my own defence," laltercd Miss Tox,
'"and only in my defence against your un
kind words, my dear Louisa, 1 would inere
I \y ask you if you haven't often favored such
1 a fancy, and even said it might happen,for
| anything we could tell ?"
1 "There is a point," said Mrs. Chick, rs
log, not a* if she were going to "top at the
floor, but as it' she were about to soar up,
high, into her native ?kies, "beyond wKicii'
endurance become* ridiculous, if not cul
pable. 1 can bear much; but not loo much. *
What spell was on me when I came into
ibis house this day, 1 don't know; but I
had a presentiment?a dark presentiment,"
said Mis. Chirk, with a shiver, "that some
thing was going to happen. Well may I
have had that foreboding, Lucretia, when
iny confidence of n.any years is destroyed
in an instant, when my eyes are opened all
at once, and when I find you revealed in
your true colors. Lucretia, I have been
mistaken in you. It is better for us both
that this subject should end here. I wish
you well, and I shall ever wish you well
But, as an individual who desires to be true *
to herself in her own poor position, what
ever that position may be, or may not be
?and as the sister of my brother?and as
the sister-in-law of my brother's wife?and
as a connexion by marriage of my brother's
wife's mothar?may I be permitted to add, as
a Dombey??I can wish you nothing else
but good morning."
These words, delivered with cutting sn-'
avity, tempered and chastened by a lofty'
air of moral rectitude, carried the speaker
to the door. There she inclined her h*adF
in a ghostly and statue-like manner, and so
withdrew to her carriage, to seek comfort
and consolation in the arms of Mr. Chick,
her lord.
Figuratively speaking, that is to say; for
the arms of Mr. Chick were full of his
newspaper. Neither did that gentleman
address his eyes towards bis wife other
wise than by stealth- Neither did be oiler
any consolation whatever. In short, he sat
reading, and humming fsg ends of tunes,
and sometimes glancing furtively at her'
without delivering himself of a word, good,
bad, or indifferent.
In the meantime Mrs. Chick sat swell
ing and bridling, and tossing her head, as
if she were still repeating that solemn for
mula of farewell to Lucretia Tox. At length,
she said aloud, "Oh the extent to which her
eyes had been opened that day!"
44 To which your eyes have been opened,
my dear!" repeated Air. Chick.
41 Oh, don't talk to me!" said Mrs. Chick.
" If you can bear to see me in this state,
and not ask me what the matter is, you had
better hold your tongue for ever."
44 What is the matter, my dear?" asked
Mr. Chick.
I 44 To think," said Mrs. Chick, in a state
of soliloquy, "that she should ever havq
conceived the base idea of connecting her
self with our family by a marriage with
Paul! To think that when she was play
ing at horses with that dear child who ia
now in his grave?I never liked it at the
time?she should have been hiding such a
double-faced design J I wonder she was
never afraid that something would happen
to her. She is fortunate if nothing does.*
441 really thought, my dear," said Chick,
slowly, after rubbing the bridge of his nose
for some time with his newspaper, 44 that
you had gone on the same tack yourself
all along,, until this morning: and had
thought iti would be a convenient thing
enough if it could have been brought
Mrs. Chick instantly burst into tearsi
and told Mr. Chick that if he wished to
trample upon her with his boots, he had
better do it.
" But with Lucretia Tox I have done,*(
said Mrs. Chick, after abandoning herself
to her feelings for some minutes, to Mr.
Chick's great terror. 441 can bear to resign
Paul's confidence in favor of one who, I
hope and trust, may be deserving of it, and
with whom he has a perfect right to replace
poor Fanny if he chQoses; I can bear to
be informed, in Paul's cool manner, of such
a change ia his plans, and never to be con
sulted until all is settled and determined';
but deccit I can vol bear, and with Lucretia
Tox I have done. It is better as it is,"
said Mrs. Chick, piously; 44 much better.
It would have been a long time before I
could have accommodated myself comfort
ably with her, after this ; and I really don't
know, as Paul is going to be very grand,
and these are people of condition, that sho
would have been quite presentable, and
might not have compromised myself.?
There's a providence in everything; every
thing works for the best; I have been tried
to-day, but, upon the whole, I don't regret
In which christian spirit, Mrs. Chick
dried her eyes, and smoothed her lap, and
sat as bccame a person calm under a great
wrong. Mr. Chick, feeling his unworihi
ness no doubt, took an early opportunity
of being set down at a street corner, and
walking away, whistling, with his shoul
ders very much raised, and his bands in his
While poor excommunicated Miss Tox,
who, if she were a fawner and toad-eater,
was at least an honest and a constant one,
and had ever borne a faithful friendship to
wards her impeacher, and had been truly
absorbed and swallowed up in devotion to
the magnificence of Mr. Dombey?while
poor excommunicated Mist Tox watered

At night, when tho workpeople went away,

departed, pictured to herself the cheerful
