The Nation's New Year.
Ligln up tho g>lden fires!
’Tis Liberty’s glad morning! laid on fold,
The clouds roil back, Ircm mountain, stream and
Leaving her pathway to the fiamlng sea,
Light up her Atlars! ’11s no foeman’s cry
That echoes from the hills; but, sott and swift
Tho rush of mighty wings;—and vapors drift
And fads away beneath a smiling sky—
Light up the beacon fires!
Open thy moifth in Hymns, O grateful land!
Thy hills ar.? gushing with Jehovah’s praise!
Wake—wake thy harps! inspire thy poets* lays—
Fjr peace hath kissed agaia thy bloody strand.
•T.b Liberty's New Year, lo, proul and bright!
Lone as the maleless orb within the sky—
F>: in he robin; cydoj as thoy glile,
N > other year its record shall unfold,
Beaming upoa its page the burning gold,
The soft and mellow light—
Tho jewel’s flashing up with honest pride,
Beneath the loving eye of DEITY!
My country, shall it be?
'Tis thy Ne'jo Tear! and irom yon heavenly height,
Angels aro watching; —keep It pure and white!

A Russian Wolf-hunt.
While connected with the American lega
tion in Russia I received a very pressing in
vitation irom Count Potowski to visit him at
his ci,tie in the country, about twenty leagues
from St. Petersburg, where he promised me
some rare sport in hunting wolves.
“I think,”he said.“you wiil find our mode
of destroying these beasts sufficiently novel
and exciting to repay you for your twuble.”
“Oon’t speak of trouble, count, ta connec
tion with a visit to your castle I lam certain
t lat I shall (ind myself indebted to your lord
ship .or some of the happiest hours in my
It wa3 towards the close of a long, dreary
winter that I found myself in very sumptuous
quarters ot the castle referred to, which stood
upon a high eminence commanding an exten
sive view ot a level, open plain, which was the
beginning of a wilderness that stretched away
unbroken for many and many a league. It was
on this open plain, now covered with a heavy
incrustation of snow, that tne count proposed
we should have our woit-hunt, which to me
did prove novel and exciting, and even peril
ous beyond anything I had ever known.
Armed with double-barrelled guns and some
five hundred ball cartridges apiece, the count,
a f.i.-nl of his, and myself, set off one afternoon
in a troika for the place where we were to be
gin our excitiDg sport—which, premising it
m ly be as new to others as to me, I will en
deavor to describe somewhat in detail.
In the first place, a troika is a sledge, (in our
case large enough to give ample room to three
persons besides the driver,) and is drawn by
three horses, Irom which fact it takes its name;
there hor.es, trained lor the purpose, and har
nessed to it all abreast. The one i i the cen
tre, the principal beast to be relied on, moves
with his head down, and always in a trot, and
is called the "Snow-Eater;” while the two oth
ers gaiiop along beside him, with their heads
loose, and ar e termed the “Furies.” To man
age ail these properly, and keep the troika from
upsetting, as itsuims anJ dauee3 over the froz
en snow, uy hill and down dale, require a driv
er of great skill and experience. Ordinarily
the upsetting of this sledge may not matter
so much; but when surrounded by a large puck
ol hungry wolves, it is cenain death!
In ouch a sledge and such a ma ,ner, we set
off, one clear, cold afternoon, for the scene of
our exploits, carrying with us a balf-grow'n
hog, winch was to serve us for bait. We reach
ed our first destination just as the sun was
sinking in his snowy bed, and the full round
moon was rising to silver over the scene.—
Then the hog was taken out and attache# to
the troika by an iron chain, from tour to six
feet long, arid the horses started forward at a
brisk paee over the level, glistening plain.—
Tre hog began to squeal, and the count turned
to me with a laugh.
“±low <lo you like the sport, Mr. Kingston ?”
he said.
“I think I shall like it better when I see
something to shoot, and this screeching brute
gets his sharp tones a little modified 1” I re
plied, baif stopping my ears.
“You will have other noises to take off your
attention presently,” said the ccunt.
“Dj you think we shall be fortunate enough
to draw out any wolves in this way?” I ask
•‘Give me half an hour,” rejoined the coimt,
“and if 1 don’t show you more wolves than
you would care to face afoot, then consider me
your debtor for whatever you please."
Alter going some distance, our hog, greatly
to my relief, changed his tune from his shrill,
car piercing squeal, into something resembling
a whine. The sun went down, and the moon
rose in foil splendor, pouring over the white,
polished snow a brilliant light, that, by refrac
tion, was rendered almost dazzling.
“Ha I” cried the count, as a long, low, pecu
liar howl came sweepiyg over the plain, “did I
not tell you so?” There is our first answer to
our complaining friend behind. And there
again! do you hear—there is another and an
other—we soon shall have work botore us.—
See” he almost immediately added, pointing
to the ielt, “there they come 1”
I looked in the direction indicated, and saw,
in the dim (ll-tance, what appeared to be two
or three small, moving shadows; I looked to
the right, and beheld more of the same kind;
and on ah sides we now heard those long, dis
mal howls by which one woif calls to another,
and I knew ihcy were gathering in force, and
wornd soon be around us.
Our cuainoJ hog continued his plaintive
cries, and the wolves fell in behind, and press
ing forward, until they came up within fifty
yards, whore, for a time, their timidity seemed
to hoid them. As their numbers increased,
wbieh they did every minute—the bea3ts at
time, appealing to spring from the earth in a
mysterious way—their boldness increased al
so ; and they gradually drew nearer and near
er, snapping, snar.ing, and growling, and so
fri rhtened our horses that the driver had much
difficulty in holding them down to a reason
able pace.
“Now, then, gentlemen,” said the count, ‘let
us begin our sport, anil Heaven send us a safe
deliverance from its perils!”
VV.tli this he fired two shots at the row of
fiery eyes behind us. A sharp yelp followed,
and one of the animals began to limp and fall
back; whereupon the others, perhaps smelling
and getting a taste of his blood, sprang furt
ouily upon him, tore him to pieces, and de
voured him in almost the time it takes me to
tell of it, In two minutes more the hungry
beasts were pressing torward more eagerly
than ever, y fired next, and brought down
another, which was also torn to pieces and de
voured in less than a minute, and then the fu
rious beasts again drew nearer, and in still
larger numbers.
From this moment the animals increased
with startling rapidity. For more than an
hour we loaded and fired as fast as we could,
and for every one we shot it appeared to me
as if there were half-a-dozen to take its place.
E mboldened by numbers aud a taste of blood,
they pressed up closer and closer, till we could
almost rfeach them, the foremost bounding
around and snapping at the poor hog, which
was now terrified almost to death, vand exert
ed itself to the utmost to escape from their
sharp fangs.
Up to this moment I had been so busily en
gaged, and so excited with the sport, as to
five no thought to our own danger; but now,
confess, I began to feel very uneasy, not to
say alarmed. Where had all these beasts
come trom? and what was to be the end of
the gathering ? It seemed as if all Kussia had
poured them out on one spot. Theiemust
have been a thousand—perhaps five times that
number— ior I could not count them. They
hud arranged themselves In the form of a cres
cent, the center of the arc resting on the hog,
and the two wings reaching lorward to the
rear ol the hordes, which snorted with lear,
and required all the skill of the driver to hold’
them. It was a wild, impressive sight, with
ju>t enough danger to make it sublime. The
heavens were clear, the moon round and full,
the plain almost a dead level, the scow as
white as milk, bright and glistening, with here
and there a thin, light covering, over a hard
crust, that flew up in fleecy clouds, like the
fine spray of a waterfall, and over this we were
d: shing, with three fiery horses ab.euit, and a
rolling cloud of wolves to the right, lelt and
r a ■ of us, in the form of a crescent, their keen
e/es looxui t like so many little bails of fire.—
We were all standing up, loading and firing,
the count directly to the rear, and his friend
and myself to the ri,ht and to the left
Ail have said I had begun to feel some
what alarmed—ior I saw that, should anv ac
cident happen, such as the fall of one of the
horses, or the upsetting of the troika we
could scarcely hope to get off with life, but i
did not like to mention my tears to persons
who had so much experience as my compan
At lari, seeing that matters were steadily be
com 'n? wor.e instead of better, and tliat, great
as was the number of tur foes, they were still
increasing, I ventured to say—
“Count, those ravenous beasts are pressing
up very ciose I”
“Indeed they are!” he replied, taking a
quick, keen survey of the whole scene. “They
are getting pretty well forward, tool” he pur
sued, with an anxious glance toward the
horses. “I confess I don’t like that. What do
you say, Paul ?” he added, addressing the driv
“My lord, I find it very difficult to manage
the horses.” ^
•‘Do you think we are in any serious danger
now, Paul ?”
“I don’t like to see the beasts creeping so far
forward, my lord.”
“Nor I, and I think we had better knock
over a few of the foremost.”
We now, by the count’s advice, direteil our
fire at the two horns of the crescent;
but though we shot down the foremost
with great rapidity, and continued to do so till
our guns became heated, I could not see that
it thinned them in the least, or had good
effect It broke their regularity and threw
them into some confusion, it is trae; but this,
I fancied worked against as by causing them
to become bolder and press around us still
“By my faith I” at length exclaimed the count,
in a tone that betrayed some some degree of
alarm, “we must get out of this soon or the
beasts will be upon us! I never saw so many
before in my life, and I have shot till I a,u
tired. Let me see. We must have fired three
hundred times apiece; and allowing that only
every other shot has been effectual) we must
have brought down, say, five bundled wolves;
and yet they are closing up around us, more
numerous than ever, a countless legion! One
trip, one tumble, one tilt, and we are gone!—
How now, Paul, my brave lad—bow are you
going to get us out of this?”
“By giving the horses their heads and letting
them take a steady turn to the leit, so as to
change the position of the whole body of pur
suers at once.”
“Are you sure of the animals?”
“I think l can trust them.”
“And the troika, Panl ?”
“I shall do my best, trusting to Heaven, my
lord! I think the risk far less than riding as
we are.” •
“Then save us at your will, Paul, and look
to me for a hamLome reward when you have
put us safe within the castle gates!”
The next few minutes were exciting beyond
anything I had ever experienced in my life.
The driver shook the reins, gave a peculiar
chirp and whistle, and our noble steeds, as
anxious to escape as ourselves, speed away like
the wind. I fairly heid my breath, feeling that
a crisis had come involving life and death.—
Away, away we flew, the keen air cutting our
laces, and the light snow blinding our eyes,
and the little troika hounding over Die glisten
ing surface like a gad.mt boat on the foam
crested billows, I watched the dark clouds of
living animals, with their lolling tongues and
eyes of fire, and saw wit h a feeling of joy that
I cannot express, that they were slowly but
preceptively lading behind; that we were gain
ing on them—itjcli by inch, it was true—but
still gaining on them. If the noble horses
could but hold out at this speed and no acci
dent should befall us! We were all breathless
with Intensity of feeling—the single chirp or
sharp whistle of our driver being the only
sound that issued from' our party.
Gradually the horses began to turn, slowly
turn, in a broad circle to the left, so as to flank
that horn of the crescent. As we came grace
fully round, so as in a measure to face our
snarling pursuers, surprise and fear lor the
moment threw them into confusion. Impul
sively they parted and suffered us to pass
through their dense ranks and gain a home
ward start before getting a clear comprehen
sion that we were actually escaping and leav
ing them behind. Then with loud, angry
yeils they laid down to the chase, but were no
match for our fleet coursers, that every minute
widened the space between them and their
foes- Oh, how I loved the noble brutes that
were so gallantly saving us 1
“Bravo 1” at length hurst in a wild yell from
the lips of the excited count; “bravo, my no
ble steeds, and bravo, gallant driver!—this
night’s work shall he remembered to you all!”
His words of rejoicing were inst mtiy chang
ed to a cry of dismay, as one of the horses
stumbled, staggering, pitched forward, and
down upon his knees, ckecking up his com
panions and almost hurling them upon their
backs. The noble brute, as if he knew that
death to all of us was threatened through him,
made a tremendous struggle to regain his loot
ing and pace; and with success, thank God!
or this tale had never been told.
"In another half hour the ravenous wolves
were far behind us, and an hour saw us safe
wihin the castle gates uttering prayers of
The next day we rode out upon the snowy
plain, and found it strewn for miles with the
bones of the wolves we had slain on that to me
ever memorable night.

Great New England Remedy!
“It was early in the sprhag of 1855 that this com
pound w as originated. A nicmbci of my family was
afflicted with an irritation of the tliroat, attended
with a disagreeable cough. 1 had for some months
previous thought that a preparation having for its
basis the inside bark of whifejpine might be so com
pounded as to l»e very useful in lie case of the throat
and lungs. To test the value of it in the case alluded
to, I compounded a small quantity of the medicine
that 1 had been planning, and gave it in teaspoonf 1
doses. The result was exceedingly gratifying. With
in two days the irritation of the tliroat was removed,
the cough subiided, and a speedy cure was effected.
Soon after Ibis, I sent some to a lady in Londonderry,
N. H., who had been suffering lor some weeks from a
hail cough, occasioned by a sudden cold, and hail
raised mucus ►treaked with blood. She soon found
relief, and sent for more. She took about ten ounces
of it and got well. J. B. Clark, Esq., editor of the
Manchester Daily Mirror, made a trial of the same
preparation in the case of a severe com, a d was
cured immediately, lie was so highly pleased with
the results, and so confident of success attending its
sa es it placed before .he public, that he finally per
suaded me to give it a name and send it abroad to
beneti the suffering. IuNovember, 18.35, I first ad
vertised i under the name of White Pine Compound
In two years from that time there had been whole
sa ed in Manchester aionnone hundred dollar's worth,

As a remedy for kidney complaints, the White Pine
Compound stands unrivalled it was not originated
forth t purpose; but a person in using it for a cough,
was not only cured of tile cough, but was also euml
of a kidney difficu.ty o ten years’ standing. Since
that accidental discovery many thousands have used
it lor the same complaint, and have been completely
cured ”
The above was writton by Dr. Poland in i860_
Since then, as in Manchester, the White Pine Com
pound has a en the lead of a 1 cough remedies, a
wen as preparations for th- cure of kidney diffleul
ties, in every city, town, village andha ulet, through
out the New England States
The past year has given great opportunity to tcsf
the virtue ol t‘>e White Pine Compound. It has
been an unusual time lor Colds and Coughs, and very
large quantities of the Whi e Pine Compound have
been sold and used with the happiest effects it
speaks we 1 for the Medicine, and the peop.e where it
is pr pared are high in its praise
One bottle of this Cornpo <nd is generally sufficient
to remove a bad cough, and frequently 1 have known
persons to have a cold entirely remov ed in two days,
by using ess than half a bottle. From one to two
teaspoonfuls is a large dose. I sometimes put a little
white sogar aud hot water with it, when taken on go
ing to bed.
Tho limits to which I purposely confine myself in
this circular will not allow of that fui- expression
which 1 would likotogive in favor of the White Pine
Compound 11 is universally ildmired by all who use
it,—it has attained to such a popularity among tiiose
whose opinion is valuable indeed, that vanity may
possibly in part prompt me to record more here than
hurried peop e will have patience to read; so 1 will
stop, by merely recommending o all who need a
cough or kidney remedy to test the virtue of the
White Pine Compound.
A very large number of important testimonials
have already been received from Physicians, Clergy
men, Apothecaries, and indeed, from ail classes in so
ciety, speaking in the most flattering terms of the
While Fine Compound.
Dr Nichols of North field, Vt ,says:
“I llud the White Pine Compound to be very effica
cious not on y in coughs ami other pulmonic affections
but also in affections of the kidneys, debility of the
stomach and other kindred organs.”
Rev J K Chrseof Kuiuney, N. If , write :
“I have for years regarded your White Pine Com
Found a« an inva uable remedy. I can truly say that
regard it as even more efficacious and valuable than
ever. 1 have just taken the Compound for a cold, and
it works char uaingly.”
Hou. P H bweetser of South Reading, writes-.
“Having long kn wu something oi the valuable
modical properties of tho White Fine, I was prepared
ou seeing an advertisement of your White lino Com
pound, to give the medicine a trial It has been used
by members of my family, for several years, fb» colds
and ccgighe, and in some cases of serious kidney diffi
culties, with excellent results Several of our friends
have also received much benefit from the Compound.
We intend to keep it always on hand ”

Dr. Poland-.—I fee it my duty' to inform you of
the very g eat benetlr which I have received from the
use of your White Pine Compound. In August, 1861,
I to k a ve«y severe co d. which continued to afflict
me, increasing in severity, attended with a very se
vere cough, ni hi sweats and some b eetling, proha
by from the throat. Through the tali aud winter my j
cough was very distressing, reducing my ties . and
strength, and rendering me unfit for labor 1 tried
medicines of various kinds, but none of them, how
ever valuable, gave me any re lef. In March, i862,
as you may remember, I wrote to you stating mv dir
efiulties and asking advice. You sent me some of the
White Pine Componnd I commenced taking it, and
immediately began to amend. At the time of writ
ing to you my weight was only 135 pounds. Jnfive
weeks I was out in active abor, and iu a few months
gained op t • 165 pounds. I know t at it was the
White Pine Compound which did ad this for me. I
soon began to have persons app v to me for the medi
cine, and as you now, 1 ordered it tor sale. In eight
months, tin "gli without much exertion, I disposed of
54 ' bottles of the Compound here on the Cape.
I wou'd add that several persons of my acquaint
ancc, whose condition was as hope’ess as my own,
have been cured by the White Pine Compound.
The w hite Pine compound, advertised at engtliin
ourco'umns,isnotonly as to its name inviting, bat is
a highly approved medicine, Dr. J. . Poland, the
inven o* , has the confidence of 'he many who know
him, a confluence which he enjoyed while laboring

standing with one foot upon the g ave, lie made the
