Eypeion Fluid: or WVegetable Eair
'I‘HE subscriber having devoted a considerable por
tion of his time, for a series of years, to the study
of the diseases of thé/Skin and the Human Hair, also the
best means of treatifg and curing the “Same, and having
in the course of his experiments, made various changes
and improvements in the different articles appioved as
the best for such purposes, has at length, after laborious
research and deep investigation succeeded in bringin{; to
pr section a composition, the virtues of which he chal.
lenges the world to excel.
The HyrErRION FLUID, or Vegetable Composition for
the Hair, is composed of a number of different vegetable
ingredients of opposite qualitiés, and approved by the
highest medical standard, the secret of blending & com
pounding, which is known solely to the subscriber, who
has spared neither pains nor expense in bringing it be
fore the public.
I'be Hyperion is an articlesin which a cleansing and
purifying wash is beautifully blended with a most deli
cate, silky, and glossy moisture for the hair, never before
attained, yet free from animal grease or essential oils: It
clears the pores of the skin, and causes a healthy action
in the blood vessels, nerves, &c. which feed the hair,
thereby preventing Baldness and Grey Hair—entirely
frees the skin from scraf, dandruff, and other cintaneous
diseases—disposes the-hair to curl, and keeps it so—will
postively change the harshest hair into the most soft,
healthy and glossy state-—also imparts tait a darker col
‘or—and the {ree use of it will keep both the skin & hair
i 1? a Biealthy and luxuriant state until the later period of
Ladies will find the Hyperion a great addition to the
toilet, hoth cn account of its delicate and agreeable per
fame, and the great facilities it affords in dréssing the
hair, which, when, moist with the Fluid, can be dressed
in any required form, so as to preserve its place, wheth
er plain or in curls. When used on children’s heads, it
lays the foundation of a good head. of hair.
The subscriber is well aware that nomerous articles
have been put and are befove the public, claiming for
themselves every virtue; of their merits or demerits, the
subscriber does not here presume to give judgment : but
the puliic, after repeated trials. have pronounced them
to be more brilliant in their promises than successful in
their performances. Tt is therefore, at the urgent request
of his numerous customers, amongst whom are physicians
and citizens of the first respectability, who have adopted
its use in their families, and wishing others to partici
pate in its advantages, that he has been induced to bring’
it before the public, and the subscriber will simply state
that he warrants the “HHYPRRION to be all that it is

The following composes my text, for this
The pathway to wisdom lies fn the mean, .
A vice on each side and a virtue between 3
There are two ways to poverty, two ways to pain;
- The midway alone leads to permanent gain;
- Two ways to death, and two ways to shame,
~ One way to health, and one way to fame;
~ .Two ways to vice, and two ways to hell; ’
- One way to heaven, for those who do dwell.
~ In this great game of life, from its -dawn te its close,
~ There is one way to win, and there’s two ways to lose ;
{ Apd hence those who scan mankind and their ways,
~ Find a greut denl to blame, and but little to praise.
My hearers—there is a good deal of truth
as well as some poetry in my text. That the
pathway to wisdom pursues a medium course,
I think any fool should have sense enough to
admit. On either side is a vice, a Id_many a
nincompoop, intoxicated with some gxtrava
gant notion, steps awry, as if e to
‘ put his foot in it.” Instead of following the
plain, smooth road of virtuous moderation,
which nature has laid out before you, you—
that is too many of you-~tread aside inte wi
cious extremes, under the mistaken idea that
you have found a better and pleasanter way.
Gammon and flea-fat! Because some glutton
of a hog has eaten himself out of health and
character, you must upset every flesh pot with
1w kicking distance, and endeavor to subsist
upon shavings, saw-dust, shadows, and moon
shine! You can’tlean to piety without falling .
‘inp fanaticism. In your philanthropic efforts
}yofl pay no more regard to Law, Right, and
Juslice, than if they were so many cobwebs in |
;youilway. Your philanthropy would break !
intoa man’s house to see that his mice and
cockioaches “are well cared for: yes, and I%
’haveino doubt that you secretly pry open the |
priso?s of clams and oysters, under the im
pressbn that you are doing the poor fellows'
an usbounded kindness: but the innocents!
get niost wofully ‘taken in.” There are some |
evils, 100, in society (as must always be the;
case) that need correcting: but, instead of
going yommon-sensically to work, you would'
rashly ‘destroy the who'e social fabrie, and
substitule one, which anybody can see with
three-quirters of an eye, is rotten from core to
rind. But, thank God, while you are forever
running mto visionary extremes—going by‘
jerks, like kangaroos, grasshoppers and frogs
—the world\will wag on as usual, with stead
iness, sobriety and moderation. |
My friends--there are two ways to poverty:
one is to revelin the halls of extravagance,
and the other, t snooze in the castle of indo
lence. Aye, there is a third way : hoard up
I a big heap of goMd, and sit and watch it with
fear and trembling ; and then you will feel poor
er than a modern chimney-sweep — and he is so
poor that bed bugs are ashamed of his society.
There are many ways to pain, besides going
barefoot and stubbing your toes, and wearing
fashionable boots for the encouragement of
Icorns : so many that [ shall not take the trou
ble to enumerate them.
T'here are two ways, my dear brethren, to
death. .Qne is-a leng one, laid out by Care
fulness and Temperance ; the other is a short
cut, taken by those who like to live in a hur
ry. and have recourse to Doctors to assist
them in getting through the wmud, mire and
mazes of existence, as soon as possible. My
text says that there are two ways to shame.—
So there are, and more too. You kiss a girl,
and she tells you ¢ You sught to be ashamed!’
—and indeed you ought, if her face be dirty,
or her natural color be such as to warrant
people in pronouncing the deed a ¢ dark trans
action.” If the kiss be. a Platonic, an holy,
or an apostolic one, it is a different matter al
‘together ; for, know ye, brethren, that if yon
do it solely to the glory eof God, you are justi
fied in bussing a baboon. But honor and
ishzxme, as my friend Pope says, from no con
dition rise : ouly mean well, and you need’nt
' be ashamed of the majority of your actions.
| My friends—there 1s one way to health—
i that is certain; and that is by obeying the com
mands of Nature, and seeking out no inven
tion whereby to sustain and prolong existence
s—-just like a jackass. 'T'he way to fame is to
do something great for your country, for liter
ature, art or science. 'T'he temple of fame is
said to be set on a high and steep hill, acces
sible only to reptiles and and the light-winged
birds of genius. But, as I never was there, I
can’t tell you much aboutit. ‘There are a
thousand ways to vice, but none worthy of re
commendaticn. There are two distinet ways
to hell ; and I leave it to you, my dear breth
ren, to take your pick of them. One is a foot
path for poor wicked loafers, who can’t afford
to go to the devil decently ; and the other is a
miacadamized road, upon which better-cincum
stanced sinners drive to destruction with a
magnificent rush. To heaven, my friends,
there is ouly one way. You seem to take diff
erent routes for the purpose of avoiding each
others’ company—-the Catholic one way, the
Protestant another, and the Puritan another—
but you must all meet in one main road before
you get at the toll - gate. That road is
garnished upon either side with the flow
ers of virtue, charity, benevolence, moral
ity, liberality, honesty, and universal good
will Faith is of no great consequence; for,
whatever is so, s so, and what must happen,
will happen, in spite of faith. The Book says
have faith like ar grain of mustard-seed, and
you will remove mountains. Now,.by way of
experiment, I once took the faith of two mus
tard seeds, and told Toad Hill, on Staten Is
land, to be removed beyond Sandy Hook, and
it didn’t budge an inch. > It is there yet, and
is likely to be. e
My friends---the game oflife is a great and‘
an interesting one, but where there is one way
to win, there are two ways to lose. Knowing
that the chances are so much against you, I
will not biame you for unlucky -throws, but
hope and pray that, in the end, you may save
your souls, even though you. lose your shirts.

’ M:ssvssipp‘i regiment, which distinguished itselt
$0 much in the attack on Monterey, did once
retreal! ‘We dislike to state the fact, but as
faithful chroniclers of the times, we are forced
to admit that on one occasion, and but one, they
did execute a most decidedly retrogade move
meunt; or, as some of the regiment expressed it,
“took the track back in double quick time.”
- After charging through the batteries, up to
the mouths of the enemy’s cannon, and amil
showers of musket balls, with their rifles and
bowie knives, outting to flight whole columns
of Mexican infantry, well armed with muskets
and baycnets—after marching up the narrow
streets, raked by grape-shot and musketry from
the terraces of the buildings—after penetrating
into the inside -of stone houses, bursting the
doors, gaining the tops and driving the Mexi
cans therefrom, they at last encountered a bat
tery from which they fled in disorderly haste.

tlemen who had walked all the way from Ca

i gnt tough was the wood and long were the

Mexican door. It had, per adventure, been
constructed by some over-anxious parent who |
had a daughter, “whom he loved passing well,” J
and feared that ordinary “bars and bolts” would
not be a sufficient protection ot her virtue. a- |
gainst the designs of any roving Lorenzoj or,
perhaps, sowe jealous Don here hoped to im

““gay Lotharios” his loving spouse, For what
purpose soever it was ‘constructed, this door
certainly opposed a lone and tough resistance |
to the doughty blows of Smith’s new patent ba- |
lista. |
But perseverance, especinlly whenbacked by
hard knocks, will overcome all obstacles, and
the Mexican door, like Gen. Ampudia, \\'6‘:l}‘-‘
ied by long resistance, at last gave way; but,
as a revenge tor the injury. and insult inflicted |
on it, Mexican like, it treacherously yielded
without any warning to Smith, and the conse- |
quence was that the gallant Mississippian was |
projected through it, and far mto the interior |
of the house, with the speed of a bullet from s |
own rifle. As soon as Smith could recover his
breath and take a view of the premises, he im
mediately beat a retreat, but just as he was e- |

“What!** they cried, *‘retreating, Smith!—

“Yes, Lam;» replied Smith, “I can’t attack |

“We will reinforce you;”’-~and accordingly |
the three rushed into the honse, but they suoui
emerged again, and this time Smith was in the |
rear, but the retreat of the valieut Misiissippi- |
ans was much impeded by heavy bYaggage—each
having a beautiful Mexican Donna clinging a
round his neck, vexing his ear with the most
terrific screams, and melung his heart with the
mozt eloquent appeals.
The whole regiment followed the example of
its officers, aund hastily rerreating from the
louse where it had reccived so warm a recep

quarter of the town, ‘
A Fire I¥ rae rEAr.— The Picayune tells
of a good joke that was practused upon a toler
ably shreswd Yaukee dealery who set-up busi
ness last summer, down in the neighborhood of
the Rio Grande. It appears that by some hook
or crook, our Yankee got hold of the only bar
rel of cider to be had at Brazos island, during
a particularly thirsty season, when it was diffi
cult to obtain adrop of liquor either fur love o
money. Having construceed a rude shanty he
commenced business, and his place was soon
threnged with custotmers to whom he etailed
his cider ont at a dime a glass.
Before long, however, they began to thin ofi
gradually until ouly a few stragelers now and
‘then visited his quarters, At length a blufl sort
of a customer came up, and having drank his
glass of cider, he took out his purse and inqui
red the price,
¢ One dime,” said the Yankee.
“ One what?” rétorted the customer, “uw hy,
I can get just as good cider here at five cents a
glass,” -
¢ N-0 y-0-u c-a-n-t,*" drauwled the Yankee,
“‘l'here aint a pint of cider >cept what Pve got
in that are barrel, this side of Orleans.”
“ 1 know better,” ejaculated the customer, ¢1
bought a glass of eider, not two hours ago, and
only paid five cents for it.”
“ Dd hke 1o know where you effected that
small trausaction.” queried the cilder vender.
“ Why, close by here, somewhere—just bhack
of your place,” returned the customer.
“PH bet the drinks you did’ut,”? spoke up
the Yankee, ““and we'll go right round and
see.” : : :
* Done,”” said the custemer, and off they
started. / :
“ Sure enough, “right round. here,”" they
found another cider establishment in full blast,
A second Yankee had rigeed a small shade in
the rear ot the first Yankee’s shanty, had tap-
Jped the other end of the latter?s barrel of cider
;lhrough a board, and was retailing it at five
‘cents a glass to a perfect rush of customers,
~ Conlemplated Attack on Vera Cruz.—The
Washington Fountain says that it seems to be
well understood by those who are in the way of
correct information, that a descent on Vera
Cruz from the rear, has been decided upoun by
the government. ‘U'he plan of operation is o
concentrate our forces at the mouth of Antigua
river that empties into the Gulf ashortdistance
to the North of Vera Cruz, and to ascend it to
where the high road from Vera Cruz to Jalapn
crosses that streaur. rom that point, it is sta
ted, the avenues to Vera Cruz ¢an be tully com
manded, and the investment of the town be
made with a certainty ot its speedy fall. With
the town, it is believed, will go the Castie of
D’Ulloa. %
T'hat such is the design of the Government
is likewise inferred from the movements of
things. 'l'he departure of Gemn. Scott for ‘T'am
pico, the movement of General Taylor upen
that town, the abandonment of the march to
San Luis Potosi, the garrisoning of Saltillo by
our troops, the rapid preparation of so large
a number of barges cf light draft for the trans
portation of troops—the collection of stores and
atms in such abundance at Tampico, the rais
ing of companies of Rocketeers and Mountain
Howitzers and other mauifest preparations—all
look to the capture, and that at a very early day,
of Vera Cruz. -

The informution received from the officers of
the Gorgon steam-vessel, which has lately ar
rived from La Platd, gives a very alarming ac
count of the effect produced on the hulls of the
Harpy and Lizard iron steam vessels by the
shot from-the batteries of Rosas. It was ex
pected from the nature of the material, thatany
breach made by shot would leave a clean- frac
ture, merely curling up the lips of the orifice,
as iy usual when fractures are caused in iron
by the application of an ordinary force. Thae
results, however, are quite different. Instead
of a clean fracture, large splinters of iron flew
about in all directions on the hull being struck,
rendering the danger from this cause tenfold
more imminent than that produced by the shot
itself. Several splinters of this kind, struck
from the hull of the Harpy, have been brought
home by the officers of the Gorgon, and among-~t
the rest, the splinter from the angle iron which
caused the death of poor Mr Barres, the clerk
in charge, proving that the tendency to splinter
is not confined to the thin sheet iron of the hull,
but to the heavier masses which compose the
vessel. The results are in accordance with
those observed in the experimental trials on
board the Excellent, and they counstitute a sad
drawback agaiust the general use of iron as a
material for vessels of war. Whether the iron
in question is not so malleable as it ought to be,
or micht be if better wrought, is another ques
tion ; for the present, however, the nien are
alarmed, and those who have witnessed the ef
iects produced on board the Harpy declare that
they will never again go tosea in an iron vessel

The correspondence of the London papers
contains a long account of the massacre of u
large nnmber of Nestorian Christians by order
of their great persecutor, Beder Khan Bey, in
the month of October last. It seems that Beder
Khan Bey collected various detachments of
troops under the command of the DBeys of
Hatkasai and Bevari, himself taking command
of afarge body of Kurds, marched into the
country of the defenceless and unresisting Nes
torinns, He then divided his force into small
parties, and fell upon the villages. = Phirty-six
of these villages were utterly destroyed, the
dwelling= being plundered and burnt, and the
inhabitants, men women and children put to
Jdeath by every species of turture which cruelty
could invent.
tiappy were those who were shot, or who
tell by the sword, who had not their bowels
ripped out of them while living, or who were
not impaled amidst the shouts and laughter of
the murderers. ‘l'wo of the bishops of the
Nestorians, it not more, were impaled, and
several of the priests, Children were torn from
their mothers, some from'their mothers? breasts
and m presence of their mothers, who were o~
bliged, screeching, to look on, put in the most
shocking manner to death.- The mothers after
wards were sacrificed. 'l'hree thousand of the
Nestorians have perished in this massacre, on
the lowest calculation. "I'he most extensive
slaughter took place at a large village, or town
ship, ealled Bias, where Beder Khan Dey was
hiumselt present. Here the two Bishops were
impaled, and from this place were sent the three
hundred heads (pickled) to the Pacha of Mous
soul, with the insulting message, that il the
Porte presumed to molest the sender, he would
send to Constantinople, insteud of Nestorian,
Turkish heads enough to make a pyramid. -
A councilot the Nestorians was immediately
held, and it was determined that the whole peo~
ple should emigrate without an hours delay to
Persia, where a great number are alrearly set
i tled of Oroominh. In their hasty flight, leaving
i all their property behinl, many fell victims to
the merciless ferocity of their “invaders, wha,
in one instance however, met with a severe re
pulse, Oue corps of the emigrants, comman.i
ed by the Patriarch, was attacked by the sol
diers of, Bedan Khan Bey and after an obstinate
conflict, the Nestorians gained the victory.—
Beder Khan Bey swore, hefore he started on
his expedition, with- all the solemuities of his
ereed, before two Imaums, that he would ex
terminate the whole Nestorian people ; and all
of them who have not streng:h to reach Persin
will experience the full realization of this oath.
“I'his ruthless onset is ascribed to the act ot
the Turkish cabinet in deposing Beder Khan
Bey, from jealousy of his power, and this, it
was supposed, haid been done by an arrange
ment with the Nestorian patrviarch theu at
Moussoul, who had "prowmised the aid of the
Nestorians in aceomplishing this ohject, and
