A DREAM OF FLOWSEB.
ST H.CLAT FBIVSt.
Une golden morn !n summer time
1 wandered in a garden,
Whose tlower-dlamonds crow i a lawn
That look* down ou the Ardeu.
) sauntered Ion/ through gothic ?hal?i
And oriental bowers;
Then fell a'ieep on a mossy bank,
And dreamt a dreim of flower*.
Beside me bloomed a violet
My ch*ek was lying near It;
And wh?*n I slept, me thought Its form
Was channel! t:> a human spirit.
Ah ! many a pang that flower had ?'elt
Ere Its virgin leaves unfurled ;
For the earth was cold, and the day a were dark.
When It lived In the Under-World '
But lo! when the angel Spring cenis round
From her wintry re-t arisen?
She rolled the stone from her tomb away,
And her soul went out of prison.
Then the violet wot* In the Upp?r-Wor d
And oped its baby eyes:
Dear God ' what a flo d cf splendor b iret
From earth and the starry skies.
Through the freezing cold, and foul dirk tauh,
This brave, pure dower bad striven ;
And now the winds came from the Sou:h
And whispered dreams of Heaven '
TLf Day-6od ?tooped from his peerless tun u?
And unothered her cheek with kisses ,
SUs thrilled and glowtd, grew faint with joy,
Till tranced In a world of blisses'
Esch morn she frd on the purest dew*
From the mother breast of Night;
Ar.d she wove her a robe of spotless sheen
From raya of the soft moon-light
The south wind brought her greetings kind,
From far otl tropic bowers;
The odors are, like spoken word*,
'I he native speech of flowers.
??????
My dream went out?the dower was thef?
The sun still brightly beaming?
But something said I had dreamt a d earn
That was not all In dreaming.
'flint the human soul wis tike that flower,
The Lnder-World may harden ,
But, touched by death, 'twill blossom cut
la trod's Eternal (tatiltn

FO/C ALL THE
PURPOSES OF A
FAMILY PHYSIC.
mm?mm*
WHERE HAS LONG EXISTED A PUBl.lC
1- demand for an wtt'ecttve Purgative Pill whl'-ti
could be relied on as sure and perfectly safe In It
operation. This has been prepared to meet tha'
demand, and an extensive trial of lLs virtues (in
conclusively shown with what success It accom
plishes the nurno?e designed It is easy to mak:
a physical Fill, but not so easy to make the ben
or all Pills?one which should have none of th
objections, but all the advantage* of every otL*r.
T'llshas been attempted he re, and with what suc
cess we would respectfully submit to the publh
decision, it has been unfortunate for the rutieiu
hitherto that almost every pursjatlvf medicine I
acrlmonlous and lr Hating to the bowels. Phi
ls not Many of them produce so much griping
pain and revulsion In the system as to more thai
counterbalance the good to De derived from them
These Fills prod ice no Irritation or pain, unless!
It arises from a preilously existing obstruction oi
derangement In the bow.'ls Being purely vege
table, no harm can arise from their use In an\
quantity; but It fsbetter than any medicine should
be taken judiciously. Minute directions for the!;
use in the several diseases to which they are ap
plicable are given on the box. Among tnecom
plaints which have been speedily cured by them
we may mention Liver Complaint, In Its various
forms of Jaundice, Indigestion, Languor and Lo*
of Appetite, Llstl??ssness, Irritability, It liou-!
Headache, Bilious Fever, Fev^rand Ague, Pain
In the Side and Loins, for In truth, a! (these are
but the consequence of diseased a< tlon of the
liver. As an aperient, they afford prompt and sim
relief in Costlveness, Piles, Colic, Dysentery,
Humors. Scrofula and Scurvy. Colds, with sor<
ness of the b dy, Ulcers and Impurity of th
blood: In short any and every case where a purgs
tlve Is required.
They have also produced some slngnlarly sur
cessfulcure^ In Rhenrnatism.Cout, Dropsy, Grav
el, Erysipelas, Palpitation or the Heart, Pulns In
the Hack, Stomach and Side. They should b
freely taken In the spring of the year, to purify
the blood and prepare the system for the chan^r
of seasons. An occasional (lose stimulates iL
stomach Into healthy action, and restores the apj?e
tlte and vigor. They purify the blood, and o>
their stimulant action on tbe circulatory system
renovate the strength of the body, and lestore the
wasted or diseased energies of th?' whole organ
ism. Hence an occasional dose is advantageous
even though no serious derangement exists ; bin
unnecessary dosing should never be carried toe
far, as every purgative medicine reduces A
strength, when taken to excess. The thousand
cases In which a physic is required cannot beenn
merafed here, but they suggest themselves to tu
reason of every body; ana It Is confidently be
lieved this pill will answer a better purpose tha.'i
anything which ha* hltnerto been available t
mankind \Vhen their virtues are once know:'
the public will no longer doubt what remedy t.
employ wLen In need of a cathartic medicine
Being sugar wrapped they are pleasant to take
and being purely vegetable, no harm can arls
from their i;se In any quantity.

Mr. J Tsaias : Dear Sir?1 am happy to say
that the Spectacles wulch 1 obtained from you last
week are entirely satlsfa< tory. From an inequal
ity in the visual ranve of my eyes, I l ave hereto
found great dldlculty in getting glasses of the
proper focal distance It affords me pleasure to
state that, by the aid of your optometer, this difll
culty has been happily obviated so that the glasse?
vou furnished me are decidedly the best adapted
to my eyes cf any 1 have ever yet used.
Very respectfully, youra, R B DRANE.

From natural defects and the aaequal range of
my eyes, I have been compelled to use glasses for
several years. 1 have tried different optlelaoa
without obtaining si asses nerfW-tly fitted to my
eyea. Four months since Mr. Tobias made two
pairs especially for me, which I have found to
serve me perfectly Bv the use of his optometer
he la enabled to adapt Glasses minutely to theeys.
1 most cheerfully recommend Mf Tobias to all
having oocaalen to uae glasses and bear my testl
mony as to hla skill as an optician.
