A YEK'S CHERRY PECTORAL, For the
A cure of COUGHS, COLDS, HOARSENESS
BRONCHITIS, WHOOPING COUGH, CROUp'
ASTHMA, and CONSUMPTION. '
Many years of trial, instead of impairing the pub
lw confidence in this medicine, hmi won for it an
appreciation and notoriety by far exceeding the woa
•anguine expectations of its friends. Nothing t>ut
it* intrinsic virtue* and the unmistakable benefit
conferred on thousand* of sufferer*, could originate
and maintain the reputation it enjoys. While many
inferior remeJie* thru«t upon the community, have
fulled and been discarded, this ha* gained friend* by
every trial, conferred benefit* on the afflicted they
never can forget, and produced cure* too numerou*
and too remarkable to be forgotten.
While it is a fraud on the public to pretend that
any one medicine will infallibly cure—still there i*
abundant proof that the Chiut Pkctoral doe*
not only as a general tiling, but almost Invariably,
cure the maladies for which it ia employed.
As time makes these facts wider and better
known, the medicine ha* gradually become the best
reliance of the afflicted, from the log-cabin of the
American peasant, to the palace* of the European
Kings. Throughout this entire country, in every
btate, city, and indeed almoat every hamlet it con
tains, Cherry I'ectobal is known as the best rem
edy extant for diseases of the Throat and Lungs, and
in many loreign countries, it ia coming to be extun
siv« ly used by their mo*t intelligent Physicians. In
Great Britain, France and Germany, where the
medical sciences have reached their highest perfec
tion. Cherry Pectoral is introduced, and in constant
use in the Armies, Hospitals, Alms Houses, Public
Institutions, and in domestic practice, as the surest
remedy their attending; Physicians can employ for
the more dangerous affections of the lung*. Also in
milder cases, and lor child! en it is safe, pleasant, and
effectual to cure. In fact, some of the most flatter
lug testimonials we receive have been from parents
who have found it efl};ucious in cases particularly
incidental to childhood.
, ® Lherry Pectoral is manufactured by a prac
tical Chemist, and every ounce of it uoder hii own
eye, with invariable accuracy and care. It is sealed
and protected by law from counterfeits, conse
quently can be relied on as genuine without adulter
ation.
We have endeavored here to furnish the commu
nity with a medicine of such intrinsic superiority
and worth as should commend itself to their confi
dence—a remedy at once safe, speedy and effectual,
which this has by repeated and countless trials prov
ed itself to be ; and trust by great care in preparing it
Y j . C i accurßc y, of uniform strength, to af
ford Physicians a new agent on which they can rely
for the best results, and the afflicted with a remedy
that will (.• for them all that medicine can do.

With h bright and steady ndlance riUmfoß
Like a guiding beacon, poors it* Hght
"Ferry! Ho!*'a voice impatient crieth
F«r acroti the water's sluggish sweep
"Ay!'' the drowsy ferryman replietb.
Muttering, turning slow again to sleep.
And again the voice impetuous ringing,
"Ferry!" through the darkness pealeth out;
While the bell beside the margin swinging,
Clanging, mingles with the lonely shout.
Through the darkness now the heavens veiling,
All night lone the love-lit beaeon gleams;
All night long the bell tolls on unfailing,
While the boatman mutters "Ay!" and dreams-
Dreams, unmindful, while the night declineth,
How each laggard hour slowly departs—
How a fair bride for her tiue love pineih,
While the river flows between their hearts.
O, ye years! roll down beneath your sorrow!
Though, the while, tbe sluggard Present sleep,
Love and trust still waiting for the morrow,
Hopeful through the gloom their vigil keep.

M EMORY.
Soft as rays of sunlight stealing
On the dying day ;
Sweet as chimes of lo«r bells pealing
Wheu eve fades away;
Sad as winds at night that moan
Through the heath o'er mountain lone,
Come the thoughts of days now gone
On manhood's memory.
A* the sunbeams from the heaven
Hi e at eve their light;
As the bells when fades the even
Peal not on the night;
As the night winds cease to sigh
When the rain falls from the sky,
Pass the thoughts of days gone by
From age's memory.
Yet the sunlight in the morning
Forth again sh> 1. break,
And the bells give sweet voiced warning
To the world to wake.
Soon the winds shall freshly breathe
O'er the mountain's purple heath ;
But the path is loft in Death—
He hath no memory.
Gen. Hopston on Temperance.—At the
great Temperance banquet in New York, last
week Gen. Houston seemed to be the "great
gun." He made a speech which excited much
npplause. The New York Express gives the
following sketch of it *.
Gen. Houston's rising was the signal for nine
hearty cheers. He Baid he lind passed the
meridian of a life of strange vicissitudes, and
had never witnessed a more interesting andi m
portant occasion. The cause of Temperance,
grown to be one of the first magnitude, and in
terests the philanthropic and the good of every
nation. Such philanthropists are looked upon
with admiration and thankfulness by all subse
quent generations; all portions of society are
affected by the subject of temperance, and peo
ple now have little confidence in those who are
still the slaves of intemperate appetites. How
are we to regard our fellow men who by this
iudnlgence degrade official positions and forget
responsible duties? But more than this, he
degrades the nature and the soul given him by
his Maker; he offers a terrible example of de
pravity to his fellow men ; becomes a brutal
a perjured husband, a ruined man in
himself and his kindred. It behooves a man to
set a good example in society, cherish the wife
he swore to love, to rear his children in virture.
Can he do these things when the demon of in
toxication has berett him of reason aud of self
respect ?
The Hon. speaker went on to illustrate the
impossibility of a virtuous life in a rum-drink
er, of which he said he did not speak altogeth
er from theory—he had in former days had
some practice of that sort. [Laughter.] When
man gives himself up to drink, he is abandoned
even by the heedless world, and he finds no
love, respect or toleration anywhere. He pro
ceeded to indicate some of the peculiar bene
fits of temperance. For himself, he would
say, that whatever changes might await him,
he would never cease to remember that he had
felt the blessings of temperance; and he would
never cease to cry out to those who are in dan
ger of the destruction which once awaited him;
lie would never cease to urge the practice of
full and perfect temperance. He went on to
show the dangers of moderate drinking, which
he illustrated by aoomica! story which set the
table in a roar. There are many indeed who
are in the highway to inebriety of the ruinous
sort,who are perfectly satisfied that they can al
ways control themselves, but they are mistaken
in this fane ed security—they are on the verge
of a precipice from which they cannot too soon
retreat, and become sober and honorable fa
thers, husbands and citizens. [Cheers.]

A bill has been introduced into the Missis
sippi Legislature proposing to sell 60,000 acres
of the 500,000 grunted to the State for internal
improvements, at a minimum price of $2 per
acre, distributing the sales through De Soto,
Tunica, Coahoma and Bolivar Counties. It
further proposes to issue scrip to these coun
ties, and to Issaquena and Washington, for
600,000 acres of swamp land, also granted to
the State by the General Government, to be
sold by the Levee Commissioners nt 50 cents
per acre. The bill provides that after the Ist
of October, 1858, the residue of the swamp
lands is to be brought into market at $ 1 per
acre, and from the proceeds of which the inter
nal improvement fund arising from the sales of
that part of the 500,000 acres provided for in
the bill shall be reimbursed with interest at o
percent, perannuin.
A Mr. Coster, of Broadway, it appears, ha*
made a proposition to the Common Council
of New York, that h« will clear all the markets

without compensation if h>» *ork should not
he satisfactorily performed. In one night he
destroyed all the rats in Centre market; in
proof of which, he exhibitsa certificate sign
ed by forty-two butchers, fishermen and others.
Sailor's Yarn.—O.d Jack Ringbolt had
been spinning old Mra. Tartametw any quan

Mr. Ringbolt's upa and downs, trials, travel
and tribulations. Honest Jack (!) bad assured
the old dame that he had aailed over and over
many cities, all under watej, and whose roofs
and chimneys, with the sign boards on the
stores, were still visible. He bad seen Lots
wife, or the pillow of aalt she waa finally fro

"And did you see that, Lot'a wifet" asked
the old lady.
"Yea inarm—hut 'tain't them now—the cat
