Tf vift ' 1-1 .. .. ' ' —^ God Knows it All. In the dim recess of thy spirit’s chamber Is there some hidden grief thou may’st no tell? Let not thy heart forsake thee; but remember Ilis pitying eye, who sees and knows it well God knows it all ! And art thou tossed on billows of temptation, And would’st do good, but eril oft prevails O think amid the waves of tribulation. When earthly hopes and earthly refuge fails God knows it all! And dost thou sin, the deed of shame conceal ing In some dark spot no human eye can see, Then walk in pride, without one sigh revealin) The deep remorse that should disquiet thee. God knows it all ! Art thou oppressed and poor, and heavy-heart ed The heavens above thee in thick clouds ar rayed, And well nigh crushed; no earthly thought im parted, No friendly voice to say, “ Be not afraid !” God knows it all ! Art thou a mourner ? are thy tear-drops flowing For one too early lost to earth and thee ? The depths of grief no human spirit knowing. Which moan in secret like the moaning sea. God knows it all! Dost thou look back upon a life of sinning ? Forward, and tremble for thy future lot ? There’s one who apes the end from the begin mug, Thy tear of penitence is unforgot— God knows it all ! Then go to God. Pour out your heart before him ; There is no grief your Father cannot feel; And let your grateful songs of praise adore him— To save, forgive, and every wound to heal. God knows it all—God knows it all ! HI** ■ ■ . ■ i D'am in. Lr> Printing Office Dialogue. In the following illustration of printing office dialogue there is certainly more truth than po etry : Foreman—You fellow with the red hair, what are you at now ? Compositor—I’m setting ‘ A House on Fire.* ’Most done. Fore.—What’s Smith about? Comp.—He’s engaged on a ‘ Horrible Mur der.’ Fore.—Finish it as quick as possible, and help Morse through with his telegraph. Bob, what are you trying to get up ? Bob—* A panic in the money market.’ Fore.—Tom, what are you distributing ? Tom—1 Prizes in Perham’s Gift Enter prize.’ Fore.—Stop that, and take hold of this 4 Runaway Horse.’ Slccum, what in thunder have you been about the last half hour? Slocum—Justifying the 4 compromise meat use’ which my ' Sub’ set. Fore.—You chap on the stool, what are you on?’ Comp.—On the 1 Table* that you gave me. Fere.—Lay it on the table for the present, have uo room for it. Comp.— How about these 4 Municipal candi dates?’ Fore.—Run ’em in. What did you say, Slocum? Slocum—Shall l * lead’ these * Men of Bos ton?’ Fore.—No, they are 4 solid’ of course.

Editor—Have you completed that4 Eloquent Thanksgiving Discourse ? Devil—Yes, sir ; and I've got up a 4 Warm Winter.’ Scissors—Here, take this 4 Official,' and be off.—Exit Devil with a 4 fat take.’ Choice of a Husband. If a man wipes his feet on the door-mat be fore coming into the room, you may be sure he will make a good domestic husband. If a man, in snuffing the candles, snuffs them out, you may be sure he will make a stupid hus band. If a man puls his handkerchief on his knees whilst taking his tea, you may be Eure he will make a prudent husband. In the same way, always mistrust the man who will not take the last pieee of toast, but prefers waiting for the next warm batch. It is not unlikely he will make a greedy, selfish husband, with whom you will enjoy no 4 brown’ at dinner, no crust at tea, no peace whatever at home. The man, my dears, who is careful about wrapping himself up well before entering into the night air, nut unfrequently makes a good invalid hus band, that mostly stops at home, and is easy comforted with slops. The man who watches the kettle and prevents it boiling over, will not fail, my dears, in his married state in exercis ing the same care in always keeping the pot boiling. The man who doesn't take tea, ill treats the cat, takes snuff, and stands with his back to the fire, is a brute whom 1 weuld not advise you, my dears, to marry upofi any con sideration, either for love or money, but most decidedly not for love. But the man who, when the tea is over, is discovered to have had none, is sure to make the best husband. Pati ence like his, deserves being rewarded with the best of wives, and the best of mothers-in-law. My dears, when you meet with such a man, do your utmost to marry him. In the severest winter he would not mind going to bed first. A New Striped Pig. The following description of a new 'striped pig’ arrangement is given by the Detroit Tri bune : A party of three young men went from this city fora ride into the country a few days aince. They stopped at a hotel in Dearborn, and asked for a little of the ‘critter.’ The landlord told them that he did not aell liquor, as the Maine law was in force. ‘ But,' be continued, glancing at the erowd in the bar room, and epeafciug in a low tone, ‘ I have got some crackers in the «thof room < and if you walk in I will sell yon some/ Whereupon oar heroes followed boniface in to the next room, and saw him open* Clip board, where, indeed, could ba teen a large pile of crackers, but they were well flanked by 1 ‘Old Maderia,’ ‘Jamaica,’ ‘Holland,’ and ‘ Coming’s rectified.’ ' Thera,’ said the obliging host, ‘ help your selves to all the crackers you want. But,’and his eyes twiukled with meaning, ‘ don't touch the liipior.’ : Then going out, ha left them ‘ alone in their glory.’ When, in a few hours the party came out to order (heir horses, the landlord, judging from appearances, probably, charged half a dollar for the crackers, for, of course, they had ■ not meddled with the liquor ! , Singing conducive to Health. It was the opinion of Dr. Rush, that singing by young ladies, whom the customs of society debar from many other kinds of healthy exer cise, should be cultivated, not only as an ac complishment, but as a means of preserving health. He particularly insists that vocal music should never be neglected in the educa tion of a young lady ; and statea by its salutary operation in soothing the cares of domestic life, it has a still more direct and important effect. 1 1 here introduce a fact,’ says Dr. Rush, ‘ which has been subjected to me by my pro fession ; that is, the exercise of the organs of the breast by singing contributes to defend them very much from those diseases to whieh the climate and other causes expose them.— The Germans are seldom afflicted with con sumption, nor have I ever known of more than one case of spitting blood amongst them.— 1 his, 1 believe, is in part occasioned by the strength which their lungs acquire by exercis ing them frequently in vocal music, which con stitutes an essential branch of their education.’ ‘ The music teacher of an academy,’ says Mr. Gardner, • has furnished me with an observa tion still more in favor with this opinion. He informs me that he has known several instances of persons strongly disposed to consumption, restored to health by exercising their lungs in singing. In the new establishment of infant schools for children of three or four years of age, evory thing is taught by the aid oft song. I heir little lessons, their recitations, their arithmetic countings, are all cliaunted ; and as they feel the importance of their own voices when joined together, they emulate each other in the power of vociferating. This exercise is found to be very beneficial to their health.— Many instances have occurred of weakly chil dren of two or three years of age, who could hardly support themselves, having become ro bust and healthy by this constant exercise of the lungs. These results are perfectly philo sophical. Singing intends to expand the chest, and thus increases the activity and powers of the vital organs. The Shakers. A correspondent of the Pittsburg Christian Advocate, writing from Jones’s Hill, a de lightful retreat at the base of Laurel Hill, one of the Allcghanies, and some twenty-four hours by coach from Pittsburg, has the fol lowing account of the Dunkards, who reside on Indian creek, in that vicinity : In their meetings, they not only foast their souls but their bodies, and in connection with their services, have a feast somew hat resem bling the Jew ish passover, consisting of a pas chal lainb, soup, bread, etc. One part of the church is partitioned off for a kitchen, and along one entire side of the house the tables are ar ranged for the guests—males at one end, fe males at the other. The soup is served up in large pewter bowls, and set about six feet apart, so that half a dozen can eat out of the same dish. 1 he mutton, bread, etc., is strung along the table at convenient distances, and after thanks are returned, all eat to their sat isfaction. Before eating, however, there is an exten sive kissing operation, snd washing of feet— each sex attending to its own department.— This is done by two persons, one bearing a pail of water, the other girded with a long towel. The congregation being all arranged for the ceremony, the man bearing the water comes up and kisses the first man, next washes his feet, then kisses him again, and goes on to another- The man with the towel goes on through the same operation, only drying in stead of washing the feet. Thus every man and woman is kissed four times in the one per formance. After the supper is over the preaching com mences ; and if there are a dozen ministers present, they must all say something. The following is a synopsis of one of the sermons : 4 Dear Predren,—Yen I look over dish con gregasion, and see so few proad-priin hats, long peards, and strait coats, I fear after all der be but a remnant saved. Dear predren, let us keep God’s holy commandments, and not let .our shildren go and hear larned preachers who splain away all the Goshpel. Let us, dear predren, keep God’s commandmeuls, in wear ing long peards, strait coals, and in washing of feet. And now, predren, let us give tanks, eat a little soup, and be dismissed.’ After preaching, the Lord’s supper is ad ministered. Unleaven bread and wine are the emblems used in this sacrament; but just be fore partaking of the bread, every man and woman leans over and kisses his or her neigh bor. in Dapuzing, mey dip their candidates three times—once in the name of each person in the Godhead—and with their faces downward, not believing in going backward into heaven. Af ter baptism, the men generally wear long beards, strait coats, and broad-brimmed hats; and the women a blue calico hood, or sun-bon net, and small, borderless cap, with a tight gered dress. They are an industrious and honest people, non-resistant, and charitable toward their own sect; but not strict observers of the Sabbath, as they regard all days alike. The Batcher and the Bear. A farmer, who had bought a calf from a butcher, desired him to drive it to his farm, and place it in the stable, which he according ly did. Now it happened that very day, that a man with a grinding organ and a dancing bear, passing by that way, began their antics in front of the farm. After amusing the farm er s family for tome time, the organ man en tered the farmer’s house, and asked the farmer if he could give him a night’s lodging. The farmer replied that he could give the man a lodging, but he waa at a lee. where to put the bear. After musing a little, he determined to bring the calf inside the house for that night, and place the bear in the stable, which was done. Now, the butcher, expecting the calf would remain in the stable all night, resolved to steal it ere mornagfcand the farmer and his guest were in the night awakened by a fearful, yelling from the outbuilding. <Hpth got' up, and taking a lantern, entered the stable, when the farmer found, to his surprise, the botehef, df vthnrri he had bought the calf, in the grasp of the beat1, rthich ifras hugging him most tremendously, for It doold not bite, being muzzled. The farmer instantly understood the state of the case, and briefly mentioned the cir cumstance to the owner of Bruin, who, to pun ish the Owner for bis intended theft, called out to^he bear, 'Hug him, Tommy !**which the bear did in real earnest, tho butcher roaring most hideously the whole, time. After they thought he tyu| suffered enough, they set him free, and the butcher slunk off, glad to escape with his life; while the farmer and his guest returned to their beds. About Children. From the Knickerbocker's pleasant gossip about children, we take the folldwing : Willie’s father is a clergyman, and ‘ tem perate in all things;’ so Willie had never seen s man chewing the ‘ vile weed’ until he was about three years old, when Mr.-. holding his little son by his dimpled hand, stood in the street for a moment, to speak to an acquain tance. Willie was all eyes, as he eould not comprehend the conversation ; and, seeing the heavily-bearded, individual occasionally put a pinch of* fine-cut’ into his mouth, was consid erably puzzled and astonished. At last, he could stand it no longer. * Pa,’ said he, anxiously, * does that man chew hair, so as to make it grow out over his face ?’ I heard a story lately about the * little-folk’ which will please E-and yourself, I am sure. A two-year old boy was taken by his mother, who lives hereabouts, to a church, for the first time. When the organ commenced playing, the youngster listened attentively for some time, and then, turning to his mother,' asked in a loud voice : * Ma ! ma ! where’s the monkey?—I don’t see the monkey!’ There were several persons in a house where there was a young child, some two or three days old ; among them a little, bright eyed boy, of some four Summers. When the grandmother soon after came in, with the babe in her arms, he was particularly pleased with it, kissed it, and evinced every symptom of de light ; asked his aunt where she got it, and was told she bought it of Dr. Adams. Then he asked how much she gave for it. She told him she paid ten dollars. lie then stood by her lap, on which the child was lying asleep, his eyes beaming with intense satisfaction.— The babe soon awoke, and squalled vociferous ly. Instantly his countenance fell; and, with almost disgust pictured on his beautiful face, he turned around, and said— * Aunty, if I was you, I’d take it back to Dr. Adams, and get my ten dollars !—making such a noise as this!’ Jewelry is becoming quite fashionable again. One of our contemporaries says he met a lady on New Year’s day who had a farm on each wrist, a four story house around her neck, and at least six life memberships to the Bible so ciety attached to each car. An infidel remarked, within the hearing of a little girl of thirteen, that all things came by chance, and that the world, like a mush room, sprang up in the night. ‘ I should like to know, sir,’ she asked, ‘ wh&re the seed came from. A Reminiscence of Old Times.—The first bell in Haverhill Mass., was purchased in 1781 ; before that time, there was a singular substitute, as appears by a vote passed in 1030 : —‘That Abraham Tyler blow his horn half an hour before meeting time on Lord's day, and on lecture days, and receive one pound of pork annually for his services from each family.’ Interesting to Wine anil Beer Drinkers.—A gentleman, in giving in his testimony last week before one of the Cincinnati courts, statod that bullock’s blood was in almost universal use among the wine merchants in that city, and especially when they wished to make steed wine. A daily paper also remarks that it is a fad that the brewers use rotten meat to improve the quality of their beer. William Hendry was tried m Providence on Tuesday, for kissing three ladies in the street against their consent. He was fined five dol lars and cost on each complaint, amounting to $7,99 for each kiss. A buck while being measured for a pair of boots, observed : ‘ Make them cover the calf.’ ‘Heaven’s!’ exclaimed the astonished shoe maker, surveying his customer from head to foot, ‘ I have not leather enough !’ ‘ What is the best attitude for self-defence!’ said a pupil (putting on the gloves) to a well known pugilist. * Keep a civil tongue in your head,’ was the significant reply. A wag was jogging home rather late and a little happy, when, passing by a dark alley, a large two-fisted fellow stepped out, and, seiz ing him by the collar, demanded his money.— ‘ Money !’ said the wag, ‘ money ! I have none —but if you wait a moment, I will give you my note at thirty days.’ Each of the four steamers of the Collins line has crossed the Atlantic about forty times, conveying in the aggregate from fifty to sixty thousand persons, and not a life has been lost by neglect, carelessness or accident. Always do tbe best you can, with the ex pectation of being blamed by your most inti mate friends for not doing better. You will thereby preserve a good conscience and avoid disappointment. Ma, that nice young man, Mr. Saufting, is very fond of kissing.’ ‘ Mind your]seam, Julia; who told you such nonsense ?’ • I had it from his own lips.’ At one of the missionary stations, the ques tion * What is originsl sin?’ having been put to an aged Indian chief, he promptly replied ‘ Laeiness !’ Commissioners Notice.

It **klom has failed to furnish almost instant relief, and a FINAL, PERMANENT CURE, by lieing used according to directions, to the foTWwlag diseases : Hliumatism Uterine Pains Gout, Sciatica Palpitation of the Heart Paralysis I’eriodical Headache Painful aud Swelled Joints St. Vjtus’ Dance Neuralgia of the Face General Debility Diseases of the Spine Pains of the Chest Deafness and Blindness Hysterics, Dyspepsia ALL DISEASES that are caused by a deficient amount of NERVOUS FLU ID, are greatly relieved, if not permanently cared by sim ply wearing the chains for a few hours each day. , Be it understood That it is not claimed that it cures all diseases, hut only those for which it is recommended ; and moreover, wc boldly claim and DEFY’, that no medicinal agent of ANY KIND has performed SO MANY CURES during the last year, of those diseases just named, as Pulvcruaclier’s Electric Chains. And to prove this assertion, we defy any |ierson to produce so many WELL AUTHENTICATED CERTIFICATES of Scientific Physicians and intelligent patients ns may be found in a pamphlet of 36 pages, to be had (gratis) of the agent in this city. The Electric Chains were first introduced in France in I860, and after being subjected to the most Thorough and rigid trial, by the first medical men in Paris, they were found to pos sess strange and marvellous ]>owtt in relieving pain, wher ever applied,and by their influence were introduced into the hospitals of that city, anil also secured by letters patent by the French Government. They are now introduced in almost every Hospital in Eng land, Germany, Austria, Belgium, and patented in those countries, where they have become the Most Popular Curative Agent In the World! ! They were first Introduced in the United States ajiout one year since, and went through witli the same trial as in Eu rope. and were at once introduced into every Hospital in New York, where they are now in daily use, effecting even MORE WONDERFUL CURBS than had ever before been awarded them. They are ltiglily recommended by Profs. Valentine Mott, Van Buren, Post, and others, who have published their Views of their power and value In several of the medical journals in that city, and are also in the daily practice of recommending their use to patients. A full account of their opinion may also be found in every pamphet, and sent to thp address of any person in the State, by applying (post paid) to Dr. JOHN MATHEWS, who is agent for Bath.— The Chains can lie sent by mail, with full descriptions for use. Price of Chains, $3 and fd. Physicians are politely invited to call and examine their construction, and pronounce ujion their merits. One >Vonl more to Invalids. No person need fear that they will not accomplish just what it is claimed they can do, aud all persons who have become disgusted with a constant pouring down of patent nostrums (bottled swill) are kindly and politely invited to give thorn a trial. N. B. On” Chain will last for years and lose none of Its electric power by use, ;unl can lie' applied to either adult or child. J. STEINKRT, Agent for the U. States. For sale In Bath by Dr. J.
