?MACHINE POETRY.
( PATENTED 1* lftW.)
Tome, Simon, give the the pivots a good oiling?I
want the machine to slide slick as grease. Siet the
cylinder to a smooth, east- running measure, and
turn steady. Hut a subject? Suppose we see before
us?not "a dagger"?but
AN ATLANTIC FARM-SCEXK.
Breezes bland, so gently blowing,
lioilea sunlight, gladly glowing.
Silvery streams and spark ling fountains,
Knit'raid hills and blue-capped mountains,
Pansied pasture, mottled meadow.
Landscape touched with sheen and shadow,
Buds in bushes blithely singing,
F low'rets fair around iipspriuging.
Budding. blooming,
Karth perfuming.
All ex<*ne my gentle muse.
here the fleecy Docks are feeding.
Little lainbkings lively leap,
While the peasant box's proceeding
With his pan to salt the sheep?
And a patched-up pair of shoes.
Lots of nannies cry ing. "Ala !"
Caring not a straw for Pa.?
How they make their mammies bob.
Sucking, butting, "by the job!"
Not like pigs, across the way.
Lazy pulling, "by the day."
Little nannies.
They are Annie's.
The* are Robert's, they are Fanny's;
But w hen they get to l>eold sheep?
(Tighten that screw, Simon !J
Piggies, white as alabaster?
Half a score, methinks, or so?
Skip like rabbits o'erthe pasture,
Never rooting where they go.
Pretty pugies.
Bout as big as
Lumps of chalk, or l?lls of snow !
Calves, lot loose from stable-prison.
Cut their capers in the snn;
Little Jimmy calls them "ius'n."
As ttiey cock their tails and run.
Ducks and geese, th?*ir feathers trimming.
All preparing for a swimming
Quack ?ud gabble by the pool;
Children p.-iuse to pluck the posies.
Honeysuckles and wild roses
Red as any drunkard's nose i? ?
As they wend their way to school.
Lovely Isssey!
Little laddr.
Sleek and "sassy
O, how glad I
Sure would feel were 1 a daddy !
Hold up, Simon?that will do. There is consider
able sound in nil that; nnd if it onl? had a little
sense in it.tt might p< taibly pass for sound sense.

The Bible?Dr. Hall, in his Journal of Health
for May, speaking of the importance of inhabit
ing houses in their structure and situation favor
able to health, refers in the following manner to
the Bible :
??There is more sound practical hygiene, on the
subject of healthy houses, in th?? fourteenth chap

its noiseless way threugh the plain, diffusing fer
tility and beauty on all sides, and losing Ttself
only in the expanded ocean of the nation'sweal .'"
An ex-Know Nothing friend of the Louisville
Democrat says, that, according to his experience,
Jt is like a country road be once traveled, which,
at the start, was broad and plain, straight and
smooth, promising a pleasant journey and speedy
arrival at the desired goal, but soon began to
twist around fences and wind through the woods
becoming less distinct at every step, until, at last!
.it ended in a rabbit track, and ran into the ground.

explosion was heard, a yell, and the next moment
a ragged loafer who had been sleeping in the
hogshead all nieht. sprang forth all inflames,

INTERESTING TO FAMILIES.
The following extract from a New York
cannot fail to l>e interesting. In referring to
the receipts of Teas in this country for one
year up to S'th ultimo, it says the\ will be 12,- ? ?
pounds short of the imports of the > ear end
ing June30, ISfi6, snd that
Tne advance in black teas. Oolongs, since last
Deeeml?er, has tieen fifteen cents per pound; and
Youug Hi son Teas, of low and medium grades,
have experienced an advance of one hundred per
cent, over last season's closing prices.
" It will thus l?e seen that tho strong and rapid
advance in the tea mnrket has lieen the result of *
short suppl) and active demand ; but when it is con
sidered t fiat we may hear at any moment of the en
tire suspension ol shipments at Shanghai, nnd. in
fact, that, as soon as a sufficient force from England
arrives at the seat of war, all five porlt of entry ill
China, will ?rolstbiy lie placed tinder strict blockade,
it would not fie surprising to see Teas at a much
higher figure than they have >et attained."
In view of these fscts, we hold out very great in
ducements for families to lay in their supplies of

THE GREATEST
MEDICAL DISCOVERY
OF THE AGE.
Mr. Kknxed7, of Roxbury, has discovered in one
of our oominon pasture weed 8 a remedy that cure*
KVBRY KIXD OF HUMOR,
from
The worst Scrofula dotrn to a common Ptmple.
He has tried it in over eleven hundred eases,and
never failed except in two cases, both Thunder Hu
mor. He lias now in his possession over one hundred
certificates of its value, all within twenty miles of
Boston. , _
Two bottles are warranted to cure a nursing Sore
Mouth. .. . . . ,
One to three bottles will cure the worst kind of
Pimples on the Face.
Two or three bottles will clear the system of Biles.
Two bottles are warranted to cure the worst
Canker in the Mouth and Stomach.
Three to five bottles are warranted to oure the
worst kind of Erysipelas.
One or two bottles are warranted to cure all Hu
mor in the Eyes. ,A.
Two liottles are warranted to cure Running of the
Kars and Blotches among the Hair.
Four to six lv>ttles are warranted to cure oorrupt
and running Ulcers.
One liottle will cure Scaly Eruptions of the Skin.
Two or three liottles are warranted to cure the
worst kind of Ringworm.
Tw o or three bottles are warranted to oure the
most most desperate case of Rheumatism.
Threw to four bottles are w arranted to cure Salt
rheum. ,, . ,
Five to eight bottles will cure the worst case of
Scrofula. ,
A benefit is always experienced from the first bot
tle, and a perfect cure is warranted when the above
quantity is taken.
Nothing looks so improbable to those who have in
vain tried nil the wonderful medicines of the day. as
that a common weed growing on tlie pastures, and
along old stone walls, should cure everv humor in the
system ; yet it is a hxed fact. If you nave a humor,
it has to start. There are no IFS nor ANDS, hums
nor ha's al>oiit it suiting some case*, buthiot yours.
I peddled over a thousand tattles of it in the vicinity
of Boston. I know the effects of it in every case.
It has already done some of the greatest cures ever
done in Massachusetts. I gave it to childreu a year
oid. Jo uid peopie of sixty. I have seen poor, PU"y?
wormy-(wising children, whose flesh was soft and
flabby, restored to a perfect state of health by one
! ottle.
To those who are subject to a sick headache, one
lwittle will always cure it. It gives great relief in
catarrh and dizziness. Some who have taken it had
been costive for years, and have l?een regulated by
it. Where the body is sound it works quite easy,
but where there is any derangement of the functions
of nature, it wiil cause very singular feelings, but
vou must not lie alarmed; they always disappear in
from four days to a week. There is never a bad re
sult from it; on the contrary, when that feeling is
gone, you will feel yourself like a new person. I
heard some of the most extravagant encomiums of it
that ever man listened to.
In inv own practice I always kept it strictly for hu
mors?liut since its introduction as a general family
medicine, great and wonderful virtues have been
found in it that I never suspected.
Several eases of epileptic fits?adiseasewhich was
alwavs considered incurable, have been cured by a
fewlnittles. O, what a mercy if it will prove effec
tual in all cases of that awful malady?there are but
few who have seen more of it than I have.
1 know of several cases of Dropsy, all of them aged
people cured liy it. For the various diseases of the
Liver. Sick Headache. Dyspepsia. Asthma. Tever
and A cue. Pain in tho Side, Diseases of the Spine,
and particularly in Diseases ofthe Kidneys, Ac., the
discovery has done more good than any medicine
ever known.
No chance of diet ever necessary?eat the best you
can net ana enough of it.
Directions for Ust.?Adults one table-spoonful
per day?children over ten years dessert-spoonful
children from five to eight years, tea-spoonful. As
no directions can lie applicable to all constitutions,
take sufficient to operate on the liowels twioe o day.

KS carefully, ground by himself to a true spherioal
accuracy, and brilliant transpnrenoy, suited precise
ly and beneficially to the wearer, according to the
ooncavitv or convexity of the eye. Very numerous

sight from the oommanceinent of using glasses in
not being precisely suited, by the use of an Optom'
ter; and tne practice of many years enables him to
measure the focal disease of the eye6, and 6uch
glasses that are absolutely required will be furnish

Sir: The Spectacles you made for mesuitvsry
well, and seem to have improved my sight more than
any other I have lately tried.
LITT. W.TAZEWELL.
I have tried a pair of Speotaolea obtained from Mr.
Tobias, and find them of great assistance to my sight,
and corresponding with nis description of the focus.
I recommeud hi in as a skilful optician.
HENRY A. WISE.
Having been induced by a friend to visit the estab
lishment of Mr. Tobias for the purpose of trying
his glasses, I was furnished by him with a pair
slightly oolored blue, whioh have afforded me more
relief and gratification than any I have ever tried.
My sight, originally very good, was injured !>y writ
ing and reading at night, frequently to a very late
hour; but with the aid of these glasses I can study
almost as late as ever, and that too without the pain
I have previously suffered.

Mr. J.Tohias. Dear Sir: I am happv to say that
the Spectacles which I obtained from you last week
are entirely satisfactory. From an inequality in the
visual range of my eyes, I have heretofore found
great difficulty in getting glasses of the proper focal
distance. It affords me pleasure to state that, by the
aid of your optometer, this difficulty has l>een happi
ly obviated, so that the glasses >ou furnished me are
decidedly the best adapted to my c>es of any 1 have
ever yet us?d.
Very respectfully, yours, R. B. DRANE,
Rector of St. James'a Parish.
Dkfa*t*f*t of Ixtkrior, May 8, IMS.
From natural defects and the unequal range of my
eyes, I have !>een compelled to use glasses for seve
ral years. I have tried different opticians without
obtaining glasses perfectly fitted to my eyes. Four
months since Mr.Tobias made two pairs especially
for me, which I have found to serve me perfectly.
By the use of his optometer he is enabled to adapt
glasses most minutely to the eye. 1 most oheerfully
recommend Mr. Tobias to all having occasion to use
glasses, and bear my testimony as to his skill as an
optician. HENRY E. BALDWIN,
