A OEM FROM DAVI8’S IRISH BALLADS. Comp in the evening, or come in iIip morning, Come when you’re looked for, or come without warning. Kisses* and welcome yu'll find here before you. And theoftnei you come here the more I'il adore you. Light is my heort since the dnv we were plighted, lied is my cheek that they told me was blighted; The green of the trees looks far greener than ev. cr,% And the linnets are singing, -True lovers don’t sever!" I'll pull you sweet flowers, to wear if you choose Or, after you’ve kissed them, they’ll lie on my bo. som. I’ll fetch from the mountain its breeze to inspire you ; I’ll fetch from my fancy a tale that won’t tire you. O ! your step’s like the rain to the summer-vexed farmer, Or sabre and shield to a Kn'ght without armor, I'll ting you sweet songs till the stars rise above mn» Then, wandering, I’ll wish you in silence to love me. We’ll look through the trees at the cliff and the eyrie, We’il tread tound the rath on the track of the lai. ry We’ll look on the stars, and we'll list to the river, Till you ask of your darling what gill you can give her. O! she'll whisper you, ‘Love as unchangeable beaming.’ And trust, when in secret, moat tunefully stream ing, Till the starlight of Heaven above us shall quiv er, And our souls flow in one down Eternity’s river. So, come in the evening, or romp in the morning, Come when you’re looked for, or come without warning, Kisses and welcome you’ll find here before you, And the olt’ner you come here the more 1*11 adore you. Light is my heart since the day we were plight ed. Red is my cheek that they told me was blighted; The green of the trees looks fur greener than ev er.

It is the object of the teacher to couiuAinicate instruction m eith er a part or the whole of the studies required for admission into the Fresh,zan class of the Uni versity. These studies, as may be seen by ref erence to the publication of the Faculty, are, English Grammar Arithmetic, and Geography, Four Books of Ctesar’s Gallia War; The Bu colics of Virgil, and six books ol the .Fneid ; Sallust, and several of Cicero’s Orations; Ja cobs’ Greek Reader, and Latin Prosody. Particular attention is paid to Elementary Principles; and Beading Writing, and Spell ing, toge'her with a daily exercise in the Sa cred Scriptures, are, by no means, neglected. Small boys are not lobe considered as exclu ded. On the contrary, it is desirable to have them, in order that they may be taught, from the first, according to the method most approv ed by the subscriber. I he pi ice of tuition is reduced to that of ele ven dollars a quarter of eleven weeks each, to be paid at the end of every quarter,at which time a v acation of two wteks is usually allowed. Voiuig men desirous of qualifying them selves for teaching in the country, would be greatly benefited by spending a few months with the subscriber. Jan. 3,1846. H. FURMAN. tf.8. University of Alabama, Jan 3. 1846. Mr. Richard Furman, an Alumnus of this Uni. versiiy, and the principal of an elementary and classical school in this vicinity, having requested of the Faculty of the University, an expression of their opinion in regard to his qualifications as a teach* er, the Faculty have no hesitation in saying, that they regard him a9 at once able and faithful, and as abundantly deserving the patronage of an intelligeii public. Mr. Furman has been for six years engaged in his present employment; and during this time, he has sent a number of students to this institution, who, if not always perfectly prepared for admission, have, nevertheless, in no case, brought from him any testimonials which their attainments would not justify. It is characteristic of him to slate, with the utmost frankness, to all whom it may concern, what he believes to be the progress made by the pupils under his charge. As an able, honest, and faithful teacher, the Fac. ulty of this University, therefore, very willingly say, that they know no one moie deserving than Mr. Furman, of the confidence of the public. By order of the Faculty. F. A. P. BARNARD, Secreatry. University of Alabama, Jan. 15,1846. Mr. Furman—Sin—By on ordinance of the Board of Trustees of the University, passed at thcii session iri Dec. 1843. the Faculty are authorized to issue to the teacher or teachers of those candi dates for admission, who, on the formation of each succeeding class, shall appear to be best prepared a eriificate to that effect, und an expression of the approbation of the Faculty. Among those who have been received into the Class recently formed, three individuals have ap pea red to surpass th© others in their acquaintance with the preparatory sntdies ; and two of ;hose are from your School. In accordance, therefore, with the Ordinance above cited, this certificate is issued to you, testifying to the superior attainments of your pupils over the mass of those applying for • mission to the University.

THIS Institution commenced its second ses sion the second Moudsy in March, and the operations of the Institution have been very much embarrassed on account ol tho absence of the regular agent, and the losses in subscrip tions, &c. It gives us great pleasure to state that the friends of the Institution have not for saken it, but have liberally co-operated with the Principal in liquidating its debt, and making preparatory arrangements to commence the second session. 1 lie second session will end the last of July, allowing the pupils to spend August and September at their homes. Ten pupils will be instructed at present, and it is believed the school will gradually increase as it becomes more and more extensively known. As this Institution is intended to embrace all the branches taught in academies for seeing persons, the Principal has engaged the ser vices of teachers of experience and thoroughly acquainted with all the branches in this In stitution. Mr. T. S. NEWELL, a graduate of the Ohio Institution for the Mind, will act aB Pro fessor of Vocal and Instrumental Music. Mr. H. CHAPIN, as Ptofessor of the Arts and Sciences. Instruction will be given as soon as practi cable, to a select class by the Principal in Ancient and Modern History, Literature, &c. The Teachers just mentioned, devote their services to the Institution at a very moderate salary being actuated more by the interest they feel for thj blind, than any pecuniary consid eration. The following course of study and regulations have been adopted tor the present session: The Scholars are required to rise at the ringing of the bell at half-past 5 o'clock in the Morning ; from (J to 7, instruction in Vocal Music; breakfast at 7; prayers immediately after breakfast; from that lime till 6, the girls are engaged in arranging the rooms; fiom quarter past 8 to quarter past 0, Arithmetic ; from half-past 9 to halt-past 10, English Gram mar; three quarters past 10 to three quarters past 11, reading th" raised print ; from 12 to 1 Geography and Writing; dine at 1. In the Afternoon the girlB are engaged in learniug to make fancy works: instruction on the,Piano, and raised print are attended to till 6 o’clock P. M., at which time the pupils lake supper: prayeis immediately after supper. Pupils are expected to attend church, and are taken to whatever church ihey wish to attend in the city. From 2 to 4, on the sabbath, the pupils will be as sembled to hear reading of sacred history, or a lecture from some interesting passage of scripture, calculated to direct their thoughts to a perusal of the bible. i ne rrincipai would nere stole that the In stitution is entirely dependent for support on individual contributions ; notwithstanding this, if its patronage should be equato that received during the last year, there will be no difficulty tn going on ; and as our agent, whose family has been ill, is expected soon, he will be re quested to visit all the counties in the State, for the purpose of laying the subject before the citizens generally. The cost to those who are able to pay will be $150 per year; and as many indigent blind, will be received and educated as the funds re ceived will support, we request the editors of the diif;rent papers who may read this adver tisement, to insert it in their columns. The Principal of this Institution would be obliged to persons having children or relatives blind, to write immediately, stating the age, capacity, circumstances, &.C., wis ing to re ceive a situation, JAMES CHAMPL1N, Principal.

Bullock’s Progressive power Press, For Parking and Compressing Cotlon on the Plantation, effecting a saving of 75 cents per bale. i I THE attention of Planters is invited to this powerful and economical Machine. Its qualities having been fairly and conclusively tested in the city of Mobile, and elsewhere, du. ring the last two years, it is now confidently submitted as a lucrative acquisition to every Cotton Planter in the country, whatever may be the scale of his operations ; and at ajirice comparatively trifling to the purchaser. Be tween its cost and its value, it would be difficult to institute a comparison. In all cases, without a single exception, it has given unbounded sat isfaction. It not only po -esses every function heretofore so long sought us necessary to a com plete Cotton Pi ess for plantations, but others not hitherto conjectured as available. Among its ascertained and unquestionable advantages, may be enumerated the following:— 1st. Its machinery is perfectly simple and substantial; requiring only negroes to attend to it, and not liable to get out of order. It obvi ates the yearly bill for repairs usually entailed by the screw press, and the Planter has the eat. iefaction of knowing that it is always ready for use. lie first cost is its only cost. 2d. It occupies a space of but 4 by 10 feet; can be put up in one comer, or along side of the Gin House, and always kept under cover. He quiring but one horse power, it can be worked by the same power that drives the gin, and, if desirable, at the same time. 3d. It can thus be worked in rainy weather, when the hands could not otherwise be employ ed, nor employed in packing without the loss and inconvenience attendant upon the carriage of the cotton from the Gin House through the rain and up the ladders to the press, by which process much is often trampled into the mud, and great labor and loss of time are incurred. 4th. It enables the 6ame number of bauds, ordinarily engaged at the screw-press, to do double the amount of work in a given time, and in a very superior manner, with apparently no more exertion ; from twenty-five to thirty bales can be packed with this press, in the same time, and with the same manual labor, that twelve or fifteen bales can be packed with the screw. vui. JIB Bti|jenuniy mi pacKin^ consists noi merely in flie neat and square form which it gives to the bales, hut also in lessening the lia bility of the bagging being torn in handling;— thus greatly obviating both the damage of the cotton from exposure at the landings and place of export, and those heavy “ wantage” bills which are inseparable from the present loose style of pack ng. 6th. li packs and keeps in permanent com pression a bale of 500 lbs. to the density of 20 lbs. to the cubic foot; being the density to which it is brought by the presses at Mobile, 7th. It thus saves the expense of compression at Mobile, which, though directly paid by the ship-owners, indirectly comes from the pocket of the Planter, and this, added • the saving of one yard, or hulf a breadth, of bagging, and u.ore than one rope upon each bale, is a sav.rig to the Planter of at least severity-five cents per bale, independently of the wantage and dnmage before mentioned. To this may be added a probable saving of one-third upon the storage, since a bale thus compressed, occupies but two thirds of the room it otherwise requires. Nor is it unreasonable to calculate upon an eventual reduction of freight from the same cause. 8ih. The power and other facilities afforded by this press, would enable the Planter to adopt round iron straps instead of the ropes now used, with demonstrable advantage in several impor tant particulars. Annealed iron wire of about 3-lGlhs of an inch in diameter, and of a strength mure than adequate to bear the rough usage to which the bales might be exposed, could be pro. cured at four and a half cents per strap, or twenty seven cents per bale, even at the high price of iron, under the present enormous tariff; and it is evident from these facta that neither the weight nor the price of wire of this size, will exceed, in any appreciable amount, that of the rope now ordinarily used. It is confidently believed that cotton secured in this manner, would reach the foreign market in a condition that would readily command fifty cents per bale more than at present, whilst the intermediate saving of wantage, waste, and re-compressing, would be unquestionable. 9th. UAt,_ paramount to all the advantages above enumerated, is the certainty that the gen eral adoption of the Progressive Power Press on the plantations, would enable the Planter, for a moderate and final expense, to render himself permanently independent of all Cotton Press combinations at Mobile, and thus to extorpate an evil which has long been deeply felt by the whole planting community. To the intelligence and provident discern ment of that community, the proprietor of the patent right submits the Progressive Power Press, not as a new and uncertaia invention, but as a machine already thoroughly established bv the constant use of several years, during which its capacity, durability, and economy, have been severely tried, and cordially acknow ledged. It is only necessary to add, that it has been admired and adopted wherever it has been seen, and has more than realized, in every in stance, the highest expectations of the purcha sers. A Press of this description has been in use at Thompson’s Pickery during the past two years, where it can be seen at any time packing 650 or 700 lbs. into the same space a bale of 500 lbs. would be if made by a screw. TERMS —Fora Press of 4 1-2 foot segment, to pack 300 lbs. $75; for a 5 1-2 foot do., to press 400 lbs., $123 ; for an 8 foot do., lu press 300 lbs. $150. GRIGGS, BARNEY & Co., Sole Agents.

SPENCER S Vegetable Tonic and restorative BITTERS. Health—“ The. poor man’s riches — The rich man’s bliss ” THE Pioprictor of tbia Medicine, actuated by a desire to benefit his fellow beings, offers to the Public the result of an extensive practice and a thorough investigation of the laws which govern the human system. He is well aware of the odium which is at tached by Physicians to all remedies, the com position of which they are not acquainted with, yet he is not satisfied to withhold this valuable medicine knowing that it will stand the test of experience, and that those who use it, will not have occasion to complain that it has not bene fited them. He is fully satisfied, that these Bitters require only to become known, to be universally appreciated and extensively used. For it cannot be denied by those who have be come acquainted with their singular virtues, that they possess a pre-eminence over all others now in use, for the diseases which they profess to cure. In proof of their extraordinary curative pro perlies, upwards of Ore Thousand Certif icates, from the most respectable Citizens in different sections ofthe Union, might be appen ded ; but the high reputation which my Vegeta ble Pills, (known as Spencer's Vegetable Pills; have acquired, is all sufficient to recom mend my Bitters to the special notice of the ; afflicted. They are purely Vegetable and may be ta ken with perfect safely by all ages and sexes in youthful, adult and declining life. They Cure Dyspepsia and Liver Com plaints by cleansing the stomach and bowels of every thing injurious to health, regulating the various secretions ; and by their manifest and sensible action upon the chyle, they purify the blood, invigorate the circulation, strengthen the digestive organs, and produces healthy ac tion, throughout the system ;—Loss of Appe tite, Heartburn, Headache, Flatulency, Palpita tion of the Heart, Restlessness, III Temper, Languor and Melancholy, which are the usual symptoms of Dyspepsia and Liver Complaint, will all disappear as a natural consequence ol its cure. They not only Cure Dyspepsia and Liter Complaint, but they have almost a miraculous effect in curing Sick Headache, and all Ner vous Affections. They are peculiarly adapted to remove all these complaints, not bv constant ly physicing, bnt by strengthen.ng the system. No greater mistake can be made than to sup pose that Dyspepsia, or any other disease ari sing from debility, can be cured by frequent for ced action on the buwels with purgative medi cines, without having a proper tonic to1accom pany them. When these complaints exist, the system is already loo weak, and every addition al dose tends to make it inure so. Spencer’s Vegetable Pills possess tonic and restore live properties independent of their purgative ettects, ana are oeneveu 10 oe me only purga tive Pill in existence that possess these impor tant properties. Spencer's Bitters also ac ting as a still more effective tonic and restora live, strengthen the digestive organs, and as* sisl them to perform their functions as nature designed. Hence they are found to be effica cious also in those Diseases peculiar to Fe males, which arise more frequently from weak ness than any other cause. The aged and in firm of both sexes, and persons of sedentary habits prone to costivt ness, and those who have suffered from loss of appetite, have experienced great benefit from them. In Convalescence from Fevers, and other acute disorders, thev restore strength ; and individuals afflicted with Nervous Headache and other derangements of the nervous function have been entirely cured by this medicine In Fever and Ague and Chills and Fever, they surpass every thing known in rooting out the last seeds of this worst of maladies. The Proprietor has known hundreds of cases, from bix to twelve months standing, who had used almost every thing they could think of, but were cured only for a few days at a time, when the chill would again return, but who have been entirely cured by using this Medicine, and have declared it to be the most sovereign and last ing remedy they evey heard of. In fact the Proprietor has never known them to fall curing the very worst cases when used according to the directions. By removing the local inflammation from the muscles and ligaments of the joints, these Pills and Bitters have been known to cure Rheuma tism, permanently in two weeks. For Worms, they are superior to any of the common vermifuge medicines, as they prevent that cold state of the stomach, and dislodge from the bowels allTne slimy matter to which these creatures adhere. Algo Asthma, by re lieving the lungs and air vessels from the mucus which even slight colds will occasion, which if not removed becomes hardened and producef this disagreeable disease. Diarhcea, Dysinte ry, and Cholic, by removing all those bad hum ors by which these complaints are occasioned, and by their singular action on the secretions os the mucous membrane. Scrofula, Scurvy, Ul cers and Inveterate Sores, by the power they exert in purifying the blond and all the springs and channels of life. Scorbutic Eruptions and Bad Complexion by their alterative effect upon the fluids that feed the skin, the morbid state of which occasions all eruptive complaints ; Sal low, Cloudy, and other disagreeable Complex tons. The use of the Pills and Bitters for a very short time, will make an entire curt of Erysipelas, Sail Rheum, and a striking improve ment in the clearness ol the skin. The worst cases of Common Colds and Influenza will most always yield to one or two doses of the Pills, And as a remedy for that distressing malady, the Piles, too much cannot be said in their fa vor, for by using this medicine in very mode rate doses, it has been known to cure the worst of cases, and that too, of those who had tried almost every other remedy that could be pre» scribed within the whole compass of the Mates rim Mediese. Females who value good lienllh, should neve er be without Spencer's Pills and Hitters, a they purify the blood, remove obstructions, and give the skin a beautiful, clear and healthy ap pearance Elderly Persons make it a rule to take them 2 01 3 times a week, by which they re move the causes that produce dtseas°, preserve their health, and keep off the infirmilie9 of ■ge. Heads of Families should alwas keep this Medicine in the house, as a remedy in cases of sudden illness, for by their immediate adminis. tralion, Cholera Morbus, Diarrhoea, Cholic, Gout in the Stomach, Cramps, Spasms, Fevers, and other alarming complaints, which open profe fatal, may be speedily cured or preven ted. All that is required of those who use "this Medicine is to use it strictly according to Hie directions. It is not by any thing the proprie tor himself may say in their favor that he hopes gain credit. It is alone by the result of a fair trial. DR. HULL’S VEGETABLE FEVER & AGUE, AMD AMTI-FEVER PILLS The following certificate was given by three highly respectable Planters, near Fife Post Office, Talladega County, Ala., one of whom had used twelve boxes of the pills in his own family. ^ This is to certify, that we have used Dr. Hull's Fever and Ague Pills in our families in several cases of Fever, and Chills and Fevei ; and their administration has been attended with complete success. In no case have they failed to produce the desired effect, when used accor ding to directions. We think they are a good Pill, and would cheerfully recommend them to all persons subject to Fever, and Chills and Fevpr.

Hull : Dear Sir—Your Fever and Ague Fills, left with us last July, by your agent, were disposed of very soon after we re ceived them. We could no doubt have dispo sed of three hundred boxes, if we Imd them, ub it was uncommonly sick in this vicinity last season. So far as we could learn, (and we mado particular inquiry,) they did not fail in curing a single case, when used according to directions. Some of our most respectable planters used them in preference to Sappinglon’s Fills. Flcase send us two hundred and twenty-four boxes, and very much oblige, respectfully yours, RIX & KENDALL.

New Terms of Advertising. The accumulation on our books of debts due us in other counties, and in other States ; anp the great difficulty attendant upon their collec tion—to say nothing ot the tax thereby imposed on us, and the losses we are forced to sustain, by many of our distant debtors neglecting to send us the amounts they may severally owe_ forces on us the necessity of adopting a mode of computing the cost of publications to be made in our columns, which can be easily under stood, and which will enable our patrons to en close, with their advertisements, the money to pay for them. Our new terms will not vary, materially, from the old ones ; and where there is any change it will be found to be in favor of the advertiser:—For example, we propose to make 80 words, or less, one square ; more than 80, and less than 160 two squares; more than 160, and less than 240 three squares, &c. Under the old system the square averages about 75 words. The price of advertising will not be changed; the change in the mode of computing the quan tity of matter in advertisements, is adopted spe. cially with a view to relieve ourself from the evils of the credit system. These rules, we propose, shall apply in all cases where the persons making publication re tide out of this city, except they be Sheriffs, Coroners, Registers in Chancery, Clerks or Court, or other public officers. Where we open an account with officers of court and others of that e)ass,we reserve to our self the right to charge thcoldjiricea.
