*1 Knew he Owed the Printer.** BY SMOKER. In youth I muv him first, Hale, hearty and well dressed; With a look that tol-J you plainly, His conscience was at rest. In after yearj I saw him— nts hearty look was gone ; His peace of mind had vanished, Ilia pride cl manhood flown. I knew he owed the printer, 1 knew It by the air Of general dejicicney That peeped out everywhere. He n*ver advertised, then* He never read the news, Until he did through tgnoranca, Both time and money lose. No one knew his business, No one knew his name, Some thought him dead or broke— No mailer, ’twos all the same. The wide world Jogged along, (The printer with the best) Save him who would not Jog, But lagged beblud the real. 80 back he went —hack—back, A disappoint*-d man ; jumping in hl> little sphere, From tire to frying j au. At last In desperate mood Jit* roused his dormant will; And di«l—what dy’ think ? Paid the Printer's bill • Going the other extreme, He published everywhere, Who he was—what he had— Price and place of store. Being a reading aye, People saw his name; And wanting w hat he had To his counter came. Being a talki sa age, People spread his name ; Custom grew—money Hew, (His sale received the same.) He prospered In Ills trade, And goes on prospering, Why? Because he advertised And pays his Printer's bill. One idea men are always tedious. A bore that talks nollimg but geology, is just as great a bore as the bore who talks of nothing but a horse. One of the most tedious beings we ever got acquainted with, was a Professor of one of our Colleges, lie would talk all day about the circulating fluid of grasshoppers, and preach by the week ou the germinal propensities of a he geranium. Poetry—Wrath ir? — A "brilliant" young miss, discoursing on poetry the other day, burst out in the following hyperbolical strain : ‘•Po etry, in ray opinion is harmony. It is the voice of angels, the music of the sphere's the royal liarp of love, the parent of purity, the benign instrument ot cbarity. Poetry breathes sweetly in the majestic symphonies of Boreas; the seas echo its music, and the waves as they roll on ward without cessation, in chromatic scales, express its very soul.

Itfu vukabi.k Railroad Management. — Late statistics of the Albany and fwheneetahy Rail road. show that during the last eleven years, 2,Si<2, io7 passengers have passed over the road, and not one, while in tiie cars, has been injured nnd only two slightly injured while standing on the platform.

The vote of the people is to be taken upon the new Constitution at the next election. Consoling.—A lazy editor says -■ there is one advantage in being old, and that is. you can ‘ loaf around the house," without being charged with laziness. Wc look forward to a good deal of enjoyment, after wc have reached eighty.” A lad, a day or two since, was called to the witness stand at the Common Pleas Court, whose tender years raised doubt as to his com petency as a witness, by not understanding the nature and obligations of an oath. The first question put was—“ Are you a son of the plain tiff?"’ The little fellow crossing his legs, and deliberately putting about half a paper of to bacco into bis mouth, replied with the utmost coolness, “Well, it's so reported.” lie testi fied.

The latest scoundrel ism in Cincinnati is cutting ladies dresses as they promenade the street The Nonpareil states that Friday morning a lady, and a stranger in the city, walking with her husband on Main street, discovered that her dress, a valuable silk one, had been cut in three places, completely ruining it. Several cases of the kind have occurred, and the scamps have not been detected. A young woman vec-ntly fell off the railroad bridge, at Cohoes, X.

A horrible murder occurred at the Tell, a rum-hole in Cincinuati, Ohio. A stranger put up there—the cook fancied he had money— .ln J*.‘ s ronD t—hit him with a hatchet , l .

So highly concentrated is it, that the dose Is “U* half of a small tea-spoonful, while the dose of that which Is sold in large bottles Is nearly a wlue-glass full, and has been pronounced decidedly Injurious in many cases, owing to its liability to become sour and ferment. THE GREEN MOUNTAIN VEGETABLE OINTMENT. The power of the Green Mountain Vegetable Ointment is astonishingly great. There is no medicine known that can surpass it in prompt and energetic action. Applied In sufficient quantities to the body, In the vicinity of the most highly Infiained parts, whetlier«extemal or Internal, It at once subdues the intlaraatlon and pain. It will quiet the most 44 angry ” looking wounds, soften and reduce swell ings of the hardest kind, and purify and restore to perfect soundness old and inveterate sores. Among the diseases to which this wonderful Ointment is adapted are the fol lowing : Glandular swellings, ague In the face, swelled breasts and sore nipples of nursing women, bronchitis, felons and ring worms, scald head, and is an invaluable dressing for burns, scalds and drawn blisters, shingles, erysipelas, piles, inhumation of the eyes yields to Its power Immediately ; all bruisees and fresh cut wounds are cured with great rapidity, fever sores and scrofflilous sores are soon changed into a healing condition, and frequenly entirely cured. GRAEFENBERG DYSENTERY SYRUP. Tills celebrated and unrivalled medicine is of immediate efficacy in the most violent and obstinate cases of dysen tery, diarrhoea, bloody ffux, Asiatic cholera, cholera mor bus, cholera infantum, looseness of the bowels, gripings and all other irregularities of the intestines. The causes of the above various complaints are various, sometimes they are atmospheric; sometimes they arise from the eatlng’of unripe or unwholesome food from the use of river water; sometimes from* a natural predisposition of the system; sometimes from teething children are frequently affected without any noticeable cause. But no matter what the origin, this syrup Is sov reign, in the most sickly tropical countries as -well as the most temperate climes. The following directions should be carefully observed. Unlike all other medicines offered for similar complaints, this syrup acts specifically upon the secretions, restoring them at once to health. Other dysen tery medicines merely allay the more violent symptoms— this cures! tiie graefenberg consumptive balm, It is beyond all question true that the Consumption (phthisic pulinonaris) is a curable disease. Some of the ablest medical writers assert this; among whom we may cite the celebrated names of Lattice, Andral, Cruvll lier, Stokes and Williams. Their researches, as well as the more recent ones of Rogee and Koudet, that >o far from pulmonary tubercle being necessarily fatal, it Is spon taneously cured by nature in a vast number of cases, even when targe ulcers have been formed ou the lungs. The great object, is to arrest the progress of the ulcers (or tubercles) upon the lungs, and to heal them pertna nently. Health will then follow. This the Graefenberg Consumptive Balm will do, and it is believed Pa be the only r. medy ever discovered. It acts at once upon the tubercles and invariably arrests their progress, and restores the lungs to soundness. It will not of course replace those portions of the lungs already consumed, hut it will heal what maybe left; leaving the Individual in health, though It may be with diminished lungs. DR.

For violent imiamation, diin n ss and failing of the sight, weakness of the eyes, invol untary weeping, foreign substances in the eyes, etc., it is a positive and speedy cure. GRAEFENBERG CHILDREN’S PANACEA A most strange and incredible fact meets us at the verv threshold of our remarks on this valuable medicine. It is this: that no medicine prepared adapted to tin- various dis eases of children and youth lias ever been offered to the public, while at the same time it is established by the most accurate tables of mortality that one-half of the hu man family die before reaching the age of five years. We should suppose that to this great class of human suf ferers—this one-half of the race—the most anxious aud earliest attention would have been given; that medical skill would have been tasked to its utmost capacity to find out a medicine to which mothers and nurses might resort under the constantly recurring necessities which present themselves in this connection. The world is literally crowded with medicines for adults, but to thesuffering of children no one has seemed to turn proper attention. No one has regarded their condition. No one has seemed to think it possible that the ravages of disease and death among them might be stayed. It Is true that there are numerous \ ermifnges and Cordials of some value, but each of these are confined exclusively to one or two forms of disease.
