WISTAR'S BALSAM OF WILD CHERRY.
That i( stands at the head of all other remedies,

sands upon thousands, of all classes, in cases of
the most dangerously consumptive character. And
physicians of the greatest eminence, throughout
our whole country, unhesitatingly pronounce it the
MOST POWERFUL CURATIVE
or Pulmonary diseases in the whole range of
Pharmacy. The sales in the Western States have
thus far been unparalleled; and the most grati.ying
proofs of its efficacy have been received from ev
ery Place where it has bten used. Thousands of
JV CONSUMPTIVE PATIENTS
have already tested its exalted virtues, and con
teased ita surpassing excellencend amazing
power. The remarkable success of this Balsam is
no doubt owing, in a great measure, to the pecu
liarly agreeable and powerful nature of its mgre-
imtn' pim JIERBAL MEDICINE!
Composed chiefly of Wild Cherry Bark and the
genuine Iceland Molt (the latter imported ex
pessly for this purpose,) the rare medical virtues
of which are also combined, by a new chemical
process, with the Extract of Tar, thus rendering
the whole compound the most certain and effica
cious ever discovered for .
Cotuumptton ef the Lungt, Liver Affectum,
And all diseases of the Respiratory Organs.
Reader! Be not startled to see this Great Amer

CEASES TO BE DANGEROUS, WHEN
I saw two little streamlets
Spring from mountain's side
And mingled into one, they formed
A river deep and wide '
Then, through a Howry plain below,
In gentle wavelets teemed to flow.
At eve, a passing zepher
As from an orange glade,
With pinions light as ether.
Upon its bosom played
Then rising from its dimpled breast,
It calmly floated to the west.
Still onward, toward the ocean,
With ripples sparkling bright
The stream with gentle motion,
Bathed in a flood of light
Boiled on thro' mountain, vale and cave,
Until it met the ocean wave.
The feeble raya of moonlight
Upon ils waters shone,
Like scintillations pure and bright,
'Mong gems and diamonds thrown
And on its surface seared and dry,
A withered leaf came floating by.
I paused reflected wondered,
What this could typify,
And at I thought and pondered,
A voice made this reply:
"The stream ia Time the withered leaf
la Man, whose stay on earth is brief!'
AN ADVENTURE IN HUNGARY.
FROM THE GERMAN.
On the third day after his departure
from Vienna, a horse dealer alighted at an
inn situated at an entrance of a Tittle town,
which, to all appearance, was respectable
and quiet. He recommended his horse to
the care of the landlord, dried his clothes
at the fire, and, as soon as supper was
ready, sat down to the table with the host
and his family, who appeared to be decent
During supper the traveller was asked
where he came from, and on his answer
ing from Vienna, they were all anxious to
hear some news from the capitol. The
horse-dealer told them all he knew. The
landlord then asked him what business had
taken him to Vienna, to which he replied
that he had been there to sell some of the
very finest horses that had ever appeared in
the market there.
At these words the landlord looked very
significantly at the young man who sat op
posite to him, and who appeared to be his
son. His expressive glance did not escape
the observation of the traveller, who how
ever, took no notice of it; yet he very soon
afterwards had couse to regret his want of
caution. Being in want of repose, he beg
ged the landlord, as soon as the supper was
finished, to snow him to his room. The
landlord took a lamp, and conducted the
traveller across a yard, into a detached
building, which contained two tolerably
neat rooms. A bed was prepared at the
farther end of the second.
As soon as the landlord had retired the
traveller undressed himself, unbuckled a
money-belt containing a considerable sum
in gold, and took out his pocket-book,
which was full of Austrian bank-notes.
Having convinced himself that his money
was right, he placed both under his pillow,
extinguished the light, and soon fell asleep,
thanking God and all the saints for the suc
cess of his Journey. He had slept but an
hour or two when he was suddenly awa
kened by the opening of the window, and
immediately felt the night air blow upon
Startled at this unforeseen circumstance,
the traveller raised himself up in bed, and
perceived the head and shoulders of a man,
who was struggling to get into the room;
at the same time he heard the voices of
several persons who were standing under
A dreadful terror seized our traveller,
who gave himself up for lost; and scarcely
knowing what he did, crept under the bed
as quickly, as possible. A moment after
wards a man sprang heavily into the room,
and staggered up to the bed, supporting
himself against the wall.
Confounded as the horse-dealer was, he
nevertheless perceived that the intruder
was inebriated, this circumstance however
gave him little hope, for he had probably
got intoxicated in order to summon up
courage for the contemplated crime; besides
this the traveller had heard the voices of
persons outside, so that the murderer in
case of resistance, could count upon the
assistance of his comrades.
But how great was his astonishment
when he saw the unknown person throw
his coat upon the floor, and stretch himself
upon the bed which he had just quitted! A
few moments afterwards he heard the in
truder snore, and his terror began gradual
ly to give way to reflection, although the
whole affair was quite incomprehensible to
He was just preparing to quit his hiding
place, in order to awake the inmate of the
house, and ask another bed in place of that
from which he had been so unceremoniously
expelled, when a new incident occurred.
He heard the outer door carefully open
ed, and, on listening, the sound of cautious
footsteps, reached his ear. a a few mo
ments, the door of his room opened, and
two figures, those of the landlord and his
son, stood on the threshold.
"Keep the lamp back)" muttered the
father in a suppressed voice.
"What have we to fear?" said the young
man; "we are two against one: besides he
has only a small knife with him, and it

sleeping soundly! hear how he snores."
"Do what I tell you," said the father,
angrily: do you wish to awake him?" would
you have his cries alarm the neighborhood?"
The horsedealer was horrified with the
spectacle. He remained motionless under
the bed, scarcely daring to breathe. The
son shut the door after him, and the two
wretches approached the bed on tiptoe.
An instant afterwards, the bed was shook
by a convulsive motion, and a stifled cry of
pain, confirmed tne foreboding, that the
unhappy man in the bed, had his throat
cut. After a short pause, of awful silence,
trie landlord said:
"It is over now: look for the money."
"I have found it under the dHIow " said
the son; it is in a leathern belt and a pocket
The murderers disappeared.
Everything being now quiet, the traveller
crept from under the bed, jumped out of
me winaow, ana hastened to the adjoining
town to iniorm me auinormes ot what had
The mayor immediately assembled the
military, and in less than three-quarters of
an hour, the inn was surrounded by sol
diers who had been summoned to arrest the
murderers. The whole house seemed bu
ried in profound silence, but on approach
ing the stables they heard a noise. The
door was immediately broken in, and the
landlord and his son were seen busily di
ging a pit. As soon as the murderers saw
the horse-dealer, they uttered a cry of hor-
ror, covered their faces with their hands,
and tell to the ground.
This was neither from repentance nor
the fear of punishment, but they thought
they saw before them the ghost of the
murdered man, notwithstanding they heard
him speak. There was some trouble in
convincing them to the contrary. They
were then bound, and led to the out-house,
where the horrible deed bad been com
mitted, anxious to see how the enigma
wouia oe solved.
The prisoners appeared tolerably col
lected, at least calm and sullen; but, when
on entering the room, they perceived the
body which lay on the bed, the son fell
senseless to the earth, and the father threw
himself upon it, with loud lamentations.

The murdered man, wus, in fact, the
youngest son of the host. Drunkenness,
was the only fault this young man had; and,

CURIOUS MILITARY AND RELIGIOUS
Chihuahua, March 7, 1847.
Our little army, 1 think, is becoming infected
with a mixture of religion and superstition
caused by a few singular circumstances, which
l will briefly relate.
In coming through a mountain coree, called
the Jornada, there was not one drop of water
to be found within seventy miles! Our wea
ried animals particularly the oxen became
exhausted, and sunk dowo, as we supposed, to
rise no more. Uur situation was appalling.
and relief seemed to be beyond the range of
possibility. At this moment, a clan of thunder
was heard, and streaks of lightning seen to
play along the mountain black clouds rolled
rapidly up, and the rain came down in torreots
the parched desert was soon drenched the
animals and men refreshed, and the army mov
ed, wondering and rejoicing. No rain had fall
en in this part of Mexico for upwards of four
months, and no one expected a drop until the
beginning of the rainy season, which common
cea about the 15th of June.
On the morning of the battle, Col. Mitchell
and half a dozen officers were riding some dis
tance in advance of the army, when a large
black wolf was seen galloping across towards
the mountain on our left. Col. M. exclaimed, in
a half laughing, half serioua manner, "Gentle
men! we are certain to meet the enemy this
evening. 11 tnat wolt crosses our path, it is
omnious of bad luck, and he will feast on our
dead bodies before morning." The men imme
diately reined up, and every one watched the
movements of the animal with breathless anx
iety. He was on the point of crossing in front
of us, when Col. Mitchell dashed to the left, ex
claiming, "By , I'll turn the tide of for
tune;' 1 he won was headed and driven out
before us, which caused a hearty shout of tri
umph. During the battle, when a portion of our
troops were falling back, (from aome mistaken
order,) the enemy raised a shout, and poured
in a general discharge of artillery. At the
same moment, the Mexican cavalry began to
advance, and confusion was beginning to show
itself in our ranks. At this critical moment,
Col. M. dashed up at full speed in front of the
right wing, (which be commanded,) and cried
out to one of bis friends, "Tlieie's the black

T. F. MARSHALL'S SPEECH AT
A very large meeting of the citizens of
New Orleans took place at the New Com
mercial Exchange, on the 16th iost. to hear
a speech from T. F. Marshal on the sub
ject of the war. His address was listened
to with great attention, although the orator
was laboring under serious indisposition.
A brief report of the speech is given in the
Picayune, from which something may be
gathered of the present views of Mr. Mar
After alluding to the circumstances which
brought forth the address, he said that he
had bean one of the loudest urM rHn.t

wnen me question was agitated, and
when he was told by his constituents and
his old fnendl that the result of annexation
would be war with England, with France,
or with Mexico, he ventured to predict no
war would ensue. But war did follow the
act and was now staring all his prophecies
in the face.
He would not discuss the question wheth
er the war could have been avoided or not,
nor would he say whether the ordering of
the army to the Rio Grande was right or
wrong, but he believed that in this war the
country was carrying out a destiny no hu
man power could control. It was now too
late; it was useless to discuss the right
eousness of the war. The destiny of the
Republic and he had from boyhood up pic

isthmus dividing the continent. There

them a better fate than the subjugation of
their country by the Anglo-American race,

Mr. Marshall now passed to his connexion
with the army. Having advocated the an
nexation of Texas, he felt bound to stand
by the consequences. He volunteered in
the service of the country, and soon found
himself at the seat of war. General Taylor
fought and won the battle of Monterey. He
advanced upon Saltillo, and preparatory to
a descent upon San Luis Potosi, and ulti
mately upon the city of Mexico itself, he
had marched to Victoria, to discover if there
was any pats in the mountains but that of
the Rinconada, through which he could ad
vance, and avoid the waterless desert be

enemy might enter the valley of the
Rio Grande, and fall upon his rear. Whilst

He, upon whose crest victory had perched

that his claws were to be lorn from him, that
he was to be enfeebled to the defensive, and

I have had friends, and many a token
Hath been exchanged in days of yore
Sad relics of friendships broken,
And boyhood o'er.
This glittering gem upon my finger
Was dear woman's gift of old,
And o'er it, sweetest memories linger.
Of love twice told.
The broken rose bud, now crumbling
Within the little casket there,
Tells me of fortune's fickle humbling,
And hope's despair.
