The bell (jives the signal, we're off like a bird. Through mountains and valleys, riht onward we press, Hurrah! then hurrah! we are i ff by express. , Our flight's like the eaeles'?, as fearless and brave; The flag tells of salety as gaily it waves. The rails are all clear, and the Monarch's ahead; See forth lrom his nostriis the deep glare of red. Still onward and .inward we gallantly press, Hurrah! then hurrah! we are off by express. Towns, cities and hamlets, have passed in review, Like some diorama ot beautiful hue. Our journey's accomplished, safe, safe as a dart, Our frame not fatigued, nor oppressed is the heart. With fire and spirit right onward we press. Hurrah! then hurrah! we are sale by express. What applies to the rail is in commerce the same, AnJ hence "The BUGG'S" greatness, and hence, The BUGG'S " lame. Express is his motto; in matters of dress, He leceives all his fashions and models by express. All the qualifications The Bugg " does possess. To outstrip all " slow trains " thus he wins by express. Expressly his fabrics are made for this mart. Expressly he nurtures his cutters of ait ; Expressiy fur him the br-st workmen's retaine Expressly lor all such prime clothes he's sustained ; Expressly to please you, his efforts progress, Expressly in beauty and cheapness ot dri-ss.

It also contains descriptions of the Medical Roots and Herbs of the United States, and how they are to be used in the cure of diseases. It is arranged on a new and simple plan, by which the practice of Medicine is reduced to principles of common sense. This invaluable book has passed through many edi tions ; it has now been revised and improved in every respect, and enlarged to nearly double its former size ; and contains nine hundred octavo pages. It does not propose to dispense with physicians in se vere cases; but it does propose to save thousands annu ally, by putting 'he means of cure into every man's hands, and of saving many valuable lives (which is of far more importance) by instructing individuals how to check disease in its beginnings, before it has acquired too much strength to resist and overcome.

The welfare of the American people renders it neces sary that thev should be made cognizant with a very momentous and valuable secret, having an intimate con nection with their pecuniary interests, the great impor tance of which, urgently demands their most serious and deliberate attention. There can be very little doubt that there exists in the whole human family an universal dis taste to bear the " slings and arrows of outrageous For tune," so long they see others of the genus Homo, (whether by the exercise of a more astute understand ing, or the result of purely fortuitous circumstances) dwelling in marble Halls, surrounded by parasites, and revelling in luxury, ease and contentment.
