Great thoughts are heaving in the world’s wide
The time is laboring with a mighty birth ;
The old ideas fall!
Men wander up and down in wild intent;
A sense of change preparing for the earth,
Brood over all.
There lies a gloom on all things under heaven,
A gloom portentious to the quiet men,
M ho see no joy in being driven
Onward from change, over to change again ;
Who never walk but on the beaten ways,
And love the breath of yesterdays ;—
Men who had rather sit and sleep
Where sunbeams through the ivys creep,
T'.sch at his door-post all alone,
Heedless of near or distant wars,
Than wake and listen to the moan
Of storm vexed forests, nodding to the stars,
Or hear, far off, the melancholy roar
Of billows, white with wrath, battling against
the shore.
Deep on their troubled soul the shadow lies,
And in that shadow coma and go,
While ntful lightnings write upon the skies,
And mystic voices chant the coming wo.
Titanic phantoms swathed in mist and flames—
The mighty shapes of things without a name.
Mingling with forms more palpably defined,
That whirl and dance like leaves upon the
Then marshaling in long array their hosts,
Rush forth to battle in a cloud-like land,
Thick phalanxed on those far terial coasts,
As swarm the locusts plaguing Samarkand,
Oh ! who would live, they cry, in times like
A time of conflict fierce and trouble strange ;
When old and new, over a dark abyss,
Fight the great battle of relentless change !
And still before their eyes discrowned kings,
Desolate chiefs, and priests forlorn,
Flit by—confused—with all incongruous things
Swooping in rise and fall on ponderous wings—
While here and there, amid a golden light,
Angelic faces, sweet as summer morn.
Which gleam an instant ere extinguished quite.
Of change to stony skulls, and spectres livid
But not to me—oh, not to me appears,
Eternal gloom ! I see a brighter sky,
I see the healthful motion of the sphere;
And, lying down upon the grass, I hear
Far, far away, yet drawing near,
A low, sweet sound of ringing melody;
I see the swift-winged arrows fly ;
I see tile battle and the combatants;
I know the cause for which their weapons
flash :
I hear the martial music nnd the chants,
The shock of hosts, the armor clash,
As thought meets thought; far beyond we
Adown the abysses of the Time to be,
The well-won victory of the Right;
The laying down of useless words and spears ;
The reconcilement ardently desired !
Of universal Truth and Might—
Whose long enstrangement, filling earth with 1
Gave them manly heart, divinely fired,
A lingering love, a hope inspired,
To reconcile them, never more to sunder.
Far, far away above thy rumbling thunder,
I see the splendor of another day.
Ever since infant Time began.
There has been darkness over man;
It roots and shrivels up ! it melts away !
Singular node to prevent the de
cay of Peach Trees.
A singular fact and one worthy of be
ing recorded, was mentioned a few days
since by Mr. Alexander Duke, of Alber
marie He stated, that whilst on a visit
to his neighbor, his attention was called
to a large orchard, every tree in which
had been totally destroyed by the ravages
of the worm, with the exception of three;
and these three were probably the most
thrifty and flourishing peach trees he ev
er saw. The only cause of their superi
ority known to his host, was an experi
ment made in consequence of observing
that parts of worm-eaten limber, into
which nails had been driven, were gener
ally sound. When his trees were about
a year old, he had selected three of them
and driven a ten-penny nail through the
body as near the ground as possible ;—
whilst the balance of the orchard had
gradually failed and finally yielded en
tirely to the ravages of the worms, these
three trees, selected at random, treated
precisely in the same manner, with the
exception of the nailing, had always been
vigorous and healthy, furnishing him at
that very period with the greatest profu
sion of the most luscious fruit. It is sup
posed that the salt of iron afforded by the
narl is offensive to the worm whilst it is
harmless or even beneficial to the tree.—

Food for Ileus.
Individuals who keeps hens, and who :
from ihe peculiarity of their location, or j
domestic relations, are compelled to con
fine them during a portion of the year,
complain that when incarcerated, they
cease to be of any profit. They feed lib
erally, keep them constantly provided with
grain, lime, water, gravel and ashes, yet
they discount no eggs.
Now, sir, it should be remembered that
the hen, while enjoying her liberty in the
yards and fields, derives no insignificant
portion of her fcod. front insects, grubs
and worms. Meat is as essential to fe
cundity as food, generally, is to life. No
hen will produce eggs without a liberal
and constant supply of it; and when
hens are confined, it must be supplied to
them daiTy, or they will not lay, or at least
not long. Fresh fish are an excellent
substitute for meat. I advise every one
who incarcerates his hens, either for the
sake of keeping them out ot mischief, or
hr other purposes, to remember this fact.

A Temperance Argument.—The An
gelica (Alleghany Co., N. Y.) Advocate,
contains the following powerful clerical
temperance argument:
A Catholic priest passed up the line of
the railroad, through Alfred, the other
dey, visiting the Catholic Irish, and find
ing one of them in a grocery selling liquor
ordered him to abandon ihe traffic. A
few days after,the priest came along again
and finding the man still selling liquor,
look an axe and stove in the beads of ev
ery barrel in the shop. The Irishman
showed some resistance to the priest’s
movements, for which the priest gave
him a smart horsewhipping, telling him,
during the ffogging, to keep cool—keep
perfectly cool.
bnrnbllifjr and Decay of Plaak
A plank road may require a removal,
either because it has worn out at top by
the travel upon it, or because it has been
destroyed at the bottom by rot. But, il
the road has travel enough to make it
profitable to. its builders, it will wear out
first, and if it does, it will have earned
abundantly enough to replace it twice over
as we shall see presently. The liability
to decay is therefore a secondary consider'
i ation on roads of importance. As to nat
i oral decay, no hemlock road has been in
■ ,,se long enough to determine how long
the plank can be preserved from rot.—
Seven years is perhaps a fair average.—
Different species of hemlock vary greatly,
and upland timber is always more durable
j than from low and wet localities. The
pine reads in Canada generally last about
eight years, varying from seven to twelve.
The original Toronto rood was used chief
ly bv teams hauling steamboat wood, and
at the end of not six years began to break
through in places, and not being repaired
! was principally gone at the end of ten
years. Having been poorly built, badly
| drained, not sanded and no care bestowed
I upon il, indicates the minimum of dura'
bility. Oak plank cross-walks are in De
troit, the plank being laid flat on those of.
pine. Il is believed that onk plank, well |
laid, would last at least, twelve or fifteen
years. One set of sleepers will outlast
two plankings. Several Canada roads
have been relaid upon the old sleepers,
thus much lessening the cost of renewal.
1 IV. Guizot's Opinion of Wash
Washington had no ambition ; his
country wanted hint to serve her, and he
became great rather from a sense of duty
than from taste ; sometimes even with a
j painfui effort. The trials of his public
life were bitter to him ; he preferred in
dependence and repose to the exercise of
power. But he accepted, without hesita
tation, the task which his country impose
ed on him, and in fulfilling it did nothing
to diminish its burden. Born to govern,
though he had no delight in governing,
he told the American people what he be
lieved to be true, and persisted in doing
what he thought wise, with firmness as
unshaken as it was simple,and a sacrifice
of popularity the more meritorious as it
was not compensated by the pleasures of
denomination. The servant of an infant
republic, in which lie democratic spirit
prevailed, he won the confidence of the
people by maintaining its interests in op
position to its inclinations. While foun
ding a new government, he practiced that
•policy, at once modest and severe, meas
ured and independent, which seem to be
long only to the head of an aristocratic
senate ruling over an ancient state. His
success does equal honor to Washington
and to his country.
Disunion—Oar Duty.
Disunion is treason against the nation,
and rebellion against God. If ever the
traitor exist, who shall lift the dagger
against the national life, let him live dis
honored, let Benedict Arnold be forgotten,
and bis blacker memory sink to the exe
cration of a disinterested posterity. And
when he goes to his own place, for the rest
of eternity, it may be, Judas shall not be
Our duty is to abide a united people,
and to shed the light of our principles,
the hope of our prosperity, and the sym
pathy of our hearts, upon the oppressed,
cheering their struggles for deliverance.
We have no call to mingle in the quar
rels of other nations, or to enforce our
principles in a crusade of madness. Our
duty is but to be free, and fulfil the duties
of freemen. Ours is simply the duties of j
the sun, in quietness and grandeur to i
shine, until in the peace, the union, the
prosperity, the happiness of our millions,
the nations may read in the very language
in which he traced his glory, on the fir
mament, that man is free, and, underGod
equal to his own government.— W. SI.
Roger's Sermon.
Profits of Fowls.—Bradford Packard,
of West Bridgewater, Mass., stales that
he kept an accurate account with twenty
fowls. (IS hens and 2 cocks ) for one year,
from Jan. 1st, IS10. He obtained 2,434
eggs, the average price of which was 14 i
cents per doz , making $2S 90 ; he raised
12 chickens, valued at 15 cents each, j
giving an aggregate of 21 90. The food
the fowls ate during this time was fifteen
| bushels of corn, which cost 10 S9, leaving
1 a net profit of S21 01. If you desire to
have your fowls lay at all seasons, feed
| them well on pudJing made from soft
bricks pulverized. It is a sure thing to
fat them and make them lay

For everything you have missed, you

A lie. These bitters are warranted to be a purely ve
getable compound—and mark this.[0s they never riothe
least injury tunny one whatever It has been used in the
private practice of the most successful physicians tor a
long time with great success, in purifying the blood and
in strengthening and invigorating the system It is not
to be supposed that any one medicine will cure all dis
eases to which the human frame is subject, nor is the
article recommended as such, like most of the quack
medicines , but for effecting the purpose for which it is
d ned, there is nothing that has proved itseli so wor
th i he public confidence as this celebrated compound.
The whole vegetable kingdom does not furnish two
substances so admirably adapted lo purity, nourish ami
invigorate the human system. These bitters have all the
effect of the powerful purg-iives, when used in sufiiciut
quantity, und yet are so mild in their operation that
they may be given to persons in most delicate health with
perfect safety. They are also very agreeable to the
taste. There have been many remarkable cures in 'his
town, of which referene s will be given by

William Armstrong, of the said City, being duly
sworn, doth depose and say that he is a practical
Druggist and Chemist That some time in the latter
part of May, or first of June, 1848, a man by the name
of Jacob Townsend, who at that time was a book and
pamphlet peddler, called upon deponent, at the bouse
of Mr. Thompson, No. Hudson-street, where depo
nent boarded, and requested deponent to write him a
recipe by which to make a Syrup of Sarsaparilla.
Deponent further says, that he became acquainted
with said Townsend at the office of Theodore Foster,
E*n., Book Publisher, with whom said Townsend
dealt That said Townsend had had frequent conversa
tions with deponent respecting the manufacture of an
article of Sarsaparilla to be sold under the name of Dr.
Jacob Townsend.
That said Townsend stated he was an old man, and
poor, and was not fit for hard labor—and wished to
make some money, in order to live easy in his old
days, and that, if Sarsaparilla under the name of Town
send sold so well, and so much money was made by
it he could see no reason why he might not make
something out of it too. (his name being Townsend.)
if he could get a capable person to prepare a recipe,
and manufacture it for him. Deponent in one of the
conversations asked said Townsend if he was related
to Dr S. P. Townsend, to which he replied, that h
kuew Dr. S. P. Townsend would be down on him after
he should commence. But that he did not care for
1 him. as he had formed a co-partnership with men who
could furnish the requisite amount of capital—and was
well prepared to defend himself against any attack
that might be made on him.
Deponent further says, that pursuant to the request
of said Jacob Townsend, he wrote a recipe for the
manufacture of a Syrup of Sarsaparilla, and gave it to
him. Said Townsend observe*! that he w anted to
make a specime n to exhibit to his partners for their
approval, as he wished to gratify them in every thing,
as they furnished all the capital - said Townsend also
told deponent that the bottles they were to use were
to be of the same size and shape*as Dr. S. P. Town
send's. and deponent, at the request of said Jacob
Townsend, went to the office of Dr. S. I’. Townsend,
and procured one of his labels.
And deponent further says, that he has been inform*
ed. and verily believes the Syrup ol Sarsaparilla, sold
as Old Jacob Townsend’s, is made after the recipe fur
nished by de|>oiient, to Jacob Townsend, as aforesaid.
And further deponent saith not

Mayor of the City of New York
Here i' proof conclusive that Dr. S P. Townsend’*
Sarsaparilla is the original. The following i* from
some ol the most respectable papers in this State.
Albany Evening Journal.
Dr. Townsend’s Sarsaparilla.
There probably never has been so popular a remedy,
t or patent medicine, as Dr. Townfie>4'i Sarsaparilla,
which was originally, and continues to ve manufac
tured in this city, at first by the Doctor him.seJfc awl
afterwards for several \ ears ami to the present time,
by Clapp k Townsend, the present proprietors. Since
the partnership was formed, the Doctor has resided in
New York, where he keeps a store, and attends to the
business that accumulates at that |>oint. The manu
factory is in this city, and is conducted by the junior
partner, Mr. <'lapp—here all the medicine is manutac
Few of our citizens have any idea of (lie .amount of
! this medicine that is manufactured and sold. Resides
the sales in this country, it is shipped to the « an ad as.
West India Islands. South America, anil even to Eu
rope, in considerable quantities. At the manufactory
they employ a steam engine, besides a large number
of inen, women and girls, in the preparation of th«
medicine, making l»o\es. printing, so* , and turn out,
j ready for shipment, over 40m dozen per day, or nearly
5000 bottles. This is an enormous quantity
The great sale the medicine has acquired, has in
duced a number of men to get up imitations, and there
is at the present time, other medicines for sale, that
are called •• Dr. Townsend’s Sar»»pa,jlhi." One in par
tienlar stalled admit time ago in New York, is called
I “Old Doctor Jacob Tnwu-rr !’s Sarsajsinlh*," and ap
parently with a view, by dint ol advertising, and the
usual remedies resorted to in such etlorts, to appmpri
ate the name of Dr. S P Townsend's ereat remedr.
and thus gain all the advantages resulting from the
popularity of the name which he has acquired lor it,
by years of patient and expensive labors. Dr S. r
Townsend, formerly of this city, as is well known
hete. is the inventor ami original proprietor of the
medicine known as * Dr Townsend’s Sarsaparilla.'*
and w e think those persons who are attempting to sell
thei*- article as the genuine, idmulJ be exposed.

I connected themselves with a man by the name of

Dr. Townsv-nd’s extraordinat) ndveitneeient,which
occupies an entire page of the s< v will not escape
notice. Dr. S F. Townsend, who is the original pro
prietor of Dr Townsend’s baisapaiilla, and whose of
lice is next door toouis, w here he has been for sever
al y ears, is driv mg an immense business. He receives
no less than 6>ur hundred doz.cn of Sarsaparilla per
day and even this enormous quantity does not supply
the demand No medicine ever gained so great a
popularity as his preparation of the Saisaparilia. His
edition of Almanacs for 1849 cost J>‘2-2,000, and he
has paid the New York Si x for advertising, in the
last four years, over *10.000, and he acknowledges
that it is the cheapest advertising he has had done.
This medicine is exported to the t anadas. West !r>.

quantities, and is coming into gcneial use in those
countries, as well as here.
Druggists and others that sell .Sarsaparilla for the
genuine and original Dr. Townsend’s Sarsaparilla,
that is not signed l>y S. F. Townsend, commits a fraud,

that ours is the only genuine.

They are endeavoring to palm oil' on the public as
an old Physician, kc He is not a regular educated
Ph\ sician, and never attempted to manulacture a med

name. They say they do not wish the people to be
lie^ that their Sarsaparilla is ours, or the Vame -but
the better to deceive the public, they at the same time
assert that their’s is the Old Dr. Tow nsend's, and tha
original ; and endeavor to make the people believe
that the stull they manufacture, is the Dr. Townsend*a
Sarsaparilla, that has performed many wonderful
cures for the past ten years, and which has gained a
reputation which no other medicine ever enjoyed—
which is a base, villainous, unprincipled falsehood.
We have commenced suits against these men foe
damages We wish it to lie understood, that the old man
is no relation to Dr. Townsend whatever. In their ad
vertisements and circulars, they publish a number of
gross falsehoods respecting Dr. Townsend, which wu
will not notice.

Dr. S P. Townsend was dead. This they send to thcii
