MARRIAGE. Married Persons or Young Men contemplating marriage, aware of Physical Weakness, (Loss of Procreative Power Impotency), Nervous Ex citability, Palpitation, Orgauic Weakness, Ner vous Debility, or any other Dis.iuulillcaliou, speedily relieved. He who places himself under the care of Dr. J. may religiously confide In his honor ns n gcntle inuii, aud contidcutly rely U'tou his skill us a Phv slciuu. ORGANIC WEAKNESS, Impotency, Loss of Power, Immediately Cured nud full Vigor Restored. This Stressing A flection which renders Life miserable aud marriage impossible is the penalty paid by the victims of improper indulgences. Young persons arc too apt to commit excesses j from not being aware of the dreadful couseqenees that may ensue. Now, who that understands the subject will pretend to deny that the power of procreation is lust sooner by "those falling into improper habits than by the prudent J Beside being deprived the pleasures of healthy oUspriiiir, the most serious and destructive symptoms to both body and mind arise. The system becomes de ranged, the Physical and Mental Functions Weakened, Loss of Procreative Power, Nervous Irritability, Dyspepsia, Palpitation of the. Heart, Indigestion, Constitutional Debility, a Wasting of the Frame, Cough, Consumption. Deutv and Death. A CURE WARRANTED IN TWO DAYS. Persons ruined iu health by unlearned preten ders who keep them trilling month nfter mouth, taking poisonous nnd injurious compounds, should apply immediately. DR. JOHNSTON, Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, Lon don, Graduutcd from one of the most eminent Colleges in the United States, nnd the greater part of whose ifc has been spent in the hospitals of London, Pris, Philadelphia nnd elsewhere, has ellected some of the most astonishing cures that were ever known i many troubled with ring ing iu the head and cars when asleep, great nervousness, being alarmed nt sudden soands, bushfulncss, '.with frequent blushing, attended sometimes with deruugciucut of miud were cured Immediately. TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE. Dr. J. addresses nil those who have Injurrd themselves by improper Indulgence and solitary habits, which ruin both body aud mind, untitling tlicra for cither business, ttudy, bocicty or mar riage. TuiisE are some of the end nnd melancholy effects produced by early habile of youth, viz": Weakness of the Back nud LIiuob. Pains in the Back aud Head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Mus cular Power, I'alpitaliou of the Heart, Dypcpsy, Nervous Irritability, Deiaiigeuieut of Digestive Functions, General Debility, symptoms of Con sumption, iiC. Mfstai.lv The fearful cITeets on the mind ure much to be dreaded Loss of Memory, Con ftisiou of Ideas, Depression of Spirits, Evil Forebodings, Aversion to Society, Self-Distnut, Love of Solitude, Timidity, dec, uro some of the evils produced. Thoi-sands of persons of all ugc9 can now Judge what is the cause of their declining health, losing their vigor, becoming, weak, pale, nervous unit emaciated, having a singular appearance about the eyes, cougji und symptoms of consump tion. YOUNG MEN Who have Injured themselves by a certain prac tice indulged In when alone, a habit frequently learned from evil companions, or ut school, the etlects of which are nightly felt, even wheu asleep, aud if uot cured, renders marriage impos. bible, und destroys both mind and body, should apply immediately. What a pity that a young man, the hope of his country, the darliug of his parents, should be Biiatchci from nil prospects und enjoyments of life, by the consequence of deviating" from the path of nature and indulging In a certain secret habit. Such persons mi st, ln-fure contemplating MARRIAGE. reflect that a sound mind and body are the most ucccssary requisites to promote connubial happi ness. Indeed without these, the Journey t'aruu-h life becomes a weary pilgrimage! the prospect hourly darkens to the view ; the mind Lccoines shadowed with despair and tilled with the melau tholy reflection, that the happiness of another becomes blighted with ourown. A CERTAIN DISEASE. Wheu the misguided and imprudent votary of pleasure finds that he has imbibed the seeds of this painful disease, it too often happens that an ill-timed seusc of shame, or dread of discovery, deters him from applying to those who, from education aud respectability, rati ulone befrieud him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms of this horrid disease make their uppearaucc, such us ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose, uoeturul pallia iu the head und limbs, dimness of sight, deufness, nodes on the shiu bones aud arms, blotches on the head, face and extremities, pro gressing with fi ighi ful rapidity, till at lust the palate of the mouth or the boues of tho nose fall in, aud the victim of this awful disease becomes a horrid object of commiseration, till death puts a period to his dreadful sulferiug, by sending him to "that Undiscovered Country from uheuee no traveller returns." It is u melancholy fact that thousands DIE victims to this terrible disease, through falling Into the hands of ignorant or uujkiilful PRE TENDERS, who, by the use of that deadly Poi fou, Mercury, Ac, destroy tho constitution, and lucupablo of curing, keep the unhappy sullerer mouth ufler month taking tbeii noxious or In jurious compounds, ami instead of bi-lng restored to a renewal of Life Vigor nnd Happiness, in des pair leave him with ruined Health to sigh over his gulling disapHjiiituieut. To such, therefore, Dr. Johnston pledges him self to preserve the most Inviolable Secrecy, ami from his extensive . practice uud observations in the great Hospitals of Europe, and the first in this country, vis l Engluud, France, Philadelphia uud elsewhere, is enabled to oiler the most cer tain, speedy und etfectual remedy iu the world for ull diseases of Imprudence.

Again to hold communion As In the days of yore They may be stern nnd sombre Tbey may be bright and fair; But the heart will have its chambers, The guests will gather there.

CASH AND CREDIT. George Browu, at the ngc of Iwenty thrci!, took Ititu a wife), or, rattier, liu and Halite took one another for belter or lor worse. Hut tlicti they knew it was K'nB In bo for Itttcr always, anil never for worse. How could it bu otherwise, when (hey un derstood each other so well V They had married younjj, and they had bul little of this world's goods to commence with ; but Ihey had health and strength, and they were goinjt to work together nnd build them un a homo of their own iu tiino. "We will bo very suviu," said llattie. "and in Ihc end wo may reach the goal." The yoal was the home which they were to own. "Wo shall not scrim), uor deny ourselves of necessary comforts ; hut we will do without luxuries. J'y thus econo mizing in the morning, wo may liud a store to spam in the evening. Money is like lime. An hour gained iu the early day is a great thing, while an hour lost may not be regained." tJeorge saw and understood, nnd he was as eager ns was his wife. 11a determined to put all his energies into ihn work, and in the future he w.is foreshadowed with romis'-'3 most bright. He had taken of his uncle a small house which he was to pay when ho could, lie had no doubt that he should be able to pay two hundred dol lars a year on it, nt which rate, his kind relative had olfered the bargain, the pro perty to bo his iu six years. "George," asked llattie, one evcuing, nt the tea-table, "What did you pay for this lea?" "What ! Did u.d usk I" "No. L have every coufideuco iu Mr. Skidd. He is a perfectly honorable man." "Hut did you not pay lor it V "No. 1 have opened an accouut there." llatlie shook her head disapprovingly George saw the motion, and went ou, "Vou know 1 urn paid monthly, arid I thought it would bo just as well to keep a monthly account at the store. Mr. Skidd, himself, preferred the plan. "I can see very readily why Mr. Skidd should prefer it," said his wife with a sig nificant smile. "In the lirst place,- he knows that you are an industrious, steady aud honorable man, nnd whatever you owe you will surely pay. lie knows that." George was flattered, but ho felt that his wile had spukuu no more than the truth. "And," pursued llattie, "ho knows one thing, lie knows you will buy more on credit thau you would for cash." George made n deprecatory motion, but his wife contiuued : "Mr. Skidd knows, lie is old in the business. Over his good customers, who open monthly accounts upon his ledger, he hag decided advantages, lie cau persuade them to buy what they would not buy if they had to pay the cash down ; and, where they are to have credit where a trader is to have the extra labor and expense of 'en tertaining uud posting each separate arti cle, aud, iu the end, of making a full bill of ileitis the buyer cannot with good con science detuaud n, reduction from asked prices." George smiled, nud said ho thought his wife was mistaken. lie was sure he was doing well. It would be incouveuient to pay for each little itnicle us he ordered it. And, furthermore, it would be handier to settle his story bills wheu his employers settled wilh him. llattie did not press tho matter. Sho had brought tlio subject upon the tapis, nnd sho was willing to await the develop ment of events. "15y the way, Mr. Urown, do you not want a box of tin so figs V They ure fresh, I'll warrant them aud by tho bos 1 will put them cheap." So spoke Mr. Skidd, tho store keeper. George knew that his wife was very foud of tigs ; nnd he loved them himself. And ho finally consented that a box should be sent to him. Ou another day Mr. Skidd said : "Ah, Hrown, my dent fellow, have you tried the golden syrup V" George had not tried the syrup. Tho best quality of molasses had hitherto an swered him. Hut he was persuaded to try it. On another day : "Look here, Hrown, shall I send you up a dozen of these Messina Oranges ? A new cargo just in. Yon won't yet 'em so cheap again only thirty ccuts." Only-thirty cents 1 Aud George knew how foud llattie was of oranges. Of course he would have them. And so tho duys passed ou, and the mouth came to nu end. George Hi own was paid by his cmployus, nnd he sat nt once about paying others. On his way home he slopped iu aud got Mr. Skidd's bill. "Vou cau take it aud look it over," raid the dealer with a patronizing smilo. "Vou will llnd it all right." George had intended to pay the bill then uud there ; but wheu ho saw the long col umn of figures, uud glanced his eye ut the sum total, his heart leaped up into his mouth, lie was astounded. He had thought to himself us he had come along, that Skidd's bill would be about twelve or fifteen dollars. After paying everything else ho would have tweuty dollars left, which would satisfy tho lust demand uud leave something over. lie had just commenced housekeeping, and be did not expect to save much at first. 1MBBICAB MAY 25, 1872. 15ut, mercy I how his anticipations were knocked in pieces ns he looked nt this bill, lie told Skidd ho guessed ho would look it over ; nnd on his way homewnrd ho ex amined it ; but he could find nothing wrong nothing wrong in the items but the sum total was n poser ; twenty-six dol lars nnd forty-two cents 1 For a long time after ho had reached home ho tried to convinco I Initio Hint nothing wns tho matter wilh him ; bul at length he plucked tip courage, nnd drew forth Skidd's bill. Ho had expected that liis wife would bo paralyzed. Hut on the contrary, she only smiled nnd said it was nil right. "All right 1" echoed George. "All right, so fur ns Mr. Skidd is con cerned," said llattie. "Vou remember what 1 told you once before, nnd now let's sit down nnd cnt supper, nnd then wo will look tho matter over." And nfter supper they weul nt tho work, llatlie took the bill, and a piece of blank paper, nnd followed the items down with her pencil. "First," she said, "is a box of figs, at fifteen cents a pound. It wns very cheap no doubt ; bul the tight pounds camo to a dollar and tweuty-fivo cents. Had you been required to pay cash, you would not havo bought them. Vou would, at least, have asked me if I liked them, nud I should have told you, no. Next wo havo a gallon of golden syrup, which wo did not ueed, and for which you would not have paid cash without consulting me." And so sho went on, and nt the end she had cut down the bill, by throwing nut ni tides which Ihey had not absolutely needed, to less thau fifteen dollars. A dollar here did not seem much to George ; and a dollar and a half there ; and then seventy-live cents ; and then only l.lly cents ; but there had U-en twenty i visiU to the store during tho past mouth, j and the aggregate of these trivial sums i was considerable. Geotge saw the whole thing, aud ho knew that his wife had been right from the first. "Don't say a word," he said. "I sec the mistake. Hut I'll havo to work around iu the right track by degrees." "Hnw so. George i"' "Why 1 haven't money enough left of my moulh's wages to pay this bill ; so I shall be utterly unable to enter upon the cash principle at present." "There is no dillieulty iu that direction." said llattie. "I hac uot spent quite all my little capital. I had already fixed it for a bit of nest egg ; and I don't know that it could be put to a belter use than the lay ing of n foundation for cash payments. At any rale, George, let us try it for awhile." George kissed his wife and said she was a blessing ; nud he promised that he would follow her ttd ice iu the future. He took the money which she had to give, aud held it as a loan, which he was to return at the earliest possible moment ; und he felt nn ambition, too, to see how speedily he could do it. And on Monday morning tho new rulo of life went into operation. George paid Mr. Skidd's hill, nnd told him that hereaf ter ho should pay cash for everything he bought. The More keeper pooh-poo'd, aud said there was tio need of it. "Hless you, my boy, I had as leave trust you as uot." "1 do not doubt it, Mr. Skidd, but I pre fer not to be trusted. 1 would rather o.,n sume my own groceries tbau to consume yours. A bill is nn evil at best, nnd I don't choose to have evils growing ou my hands if 1 can help it." Mr. Skidd saw very plainly that his customer's vision was clear, nud he said uo more. On tho evening of that very Monday, Mr. Skidd exhibited to George some extra nice preserves, nnd tho young man's fust impulse was to order a pot of them ; but the taking nut of his wallet, and the break ing of a live dollar bill was a palpable re minder ; aud he concluded that lie could get along without them. Said he to him self: "These seemingly trivial sums, if I save them, will, at the end f the month, add up as greatly in my favor as they have heretofore added against me." And he found it so. And ho found one lliitig more in his favor from cash pay ments which he had not particularly count ed upon. As ho had the money in his hand to pay for the artieles he had planned to purchase, he could buy it where he could get it the best and the cheapest. Traders are uot willing to lose cash customers ; and they do only tho fair aud honest thing when they sell to such customers cheaper than the others. Not only is tho iuterest ol the money on account au important j item iu the aggregate of many accounts, j but the keepiug of that account iu the day- : book and ledger was nu expense. George . very sooti learned all this : and he found ! that even Mr. Skidd sold to him during this month of cash payment cheaper than he had sold during the previous month. And ns the months rolled on, George Hrown opened no more necounts wilh tra ders. He found that in paying cash lie was coustautly reminded of the value of each separate sum us he counted it out, aud was hence not likely to purchase what he did uot need. Aud then he had a goal ahead which he had determined to reach ns speedily ns possible ; und by his system of cash payments he could estimate nt the close of every day the gain he was making toward the desired cud. And in two mouths he paid what he had borrowed of his wife, and she put it iu the common fund ; aud in five years his home was his own. nnd ho owed uo man anything but ! love and good will. An Explosion. The steamer Sun ex ploded seveiul years ago on Iho Mississippi river, with terrible client, and was burned to the water's edge. Captain Smith was blown into the air, alighting near u limit ing cotton bale, upon which he limited, un injured, but much blackened and mud dled. Arriving at last ut a village several miles below, to, which uews of the disaster preceded him, he was accosted by tho edi tor of the village paper, cuger for au item. "I say, is the Suu blowu up " "Yes!" "Wus dipt. Smith killed V" "I am the captain." "Tho thuuder you are 1 How high wcro you blown up V" "High enough to think of every nicau thing 1 ever did in my lite, before I came dowu here again." The editor started uu a run for his olllco, the paper ivas about going to press, uud not wishing to omit the item of intelligence uutil the next issue, bo w rote as follows : "The steamer Suu has just bursted her boiler, as wo learn from Captain Smith, who says he was up high enough to remem ber every menu thing he ever did iu his life before ho lit. We suppose he wns up about three months." o New Ncries, Vol. 4, ,o. H. OIU Kcrivn, Vol. 38, Xo. 8. Siiscclhncfjno. A Letter I'rom Mr. Nnnby. THK CINCINNATI CONVENTION MR.

J I wuz not originally a delegate to tho Cincinnati Convenshun, wich is to nay I wuz not appointed cz a delegate. Wo iicd a mectiu nt Hiiscnni's uv mo nnd Deekin l'ogram, Kernel Mel'elfer, Issnker Gavitt and ono or two oilier liibral Hcpublikins, but it wuz desided not to send n delegate. I hod, tho, somo hopes uv tho conven shun. F Adams, Davis or Hroivn cood bo nominated it wood be a good thing fr us. Adams is rulher too sncclablc a man for n first-class Democrat, but ho is still a Democrat, nud the Democratic convenshuu wood hev nccepled him.

Ihero wuz a denuushiashuu uv the tyrant Grant, more deep and fervid than 1 had heard since the fall uv Vicksburg. There wuz a torrent uv nbuse hoeped upon ollis seekers, olliee-holders, corrupsheu in the civil servis, iiiiiiiiutnent uv relatives to nllis, nnd sich, wich pleased inc. 1 jined in it heartily, and wuz immejilly asked by a delegate, whoso nose recommended him to me to-wunst, wat State I wuz a delegate from. 1 nnscred that I wuz a citizen uv Kentucky, but uo delegate that wo sent UO delegates. "That don't matter," sod he, his nose g'oin with zeal, "wo wuzn't any uv us sent wo come. You slid be n delegate." Aud afore 1 cood decline tho honor ho lied an Illinoy delegate's ticket in my hand, nnd when I sed 1 wuz for Judge Davis, in flexibly, he asked me to take suthiii. Xow, tf there is ciiylhing I'm pertikerly distin guished for, iis acccplin invitations to take suthin, nnd that delegate's alacrity in askin cood only hev bin ekall'd by my alacrity in ncceptin. lie wuz a Davis man, too. nnd 1 promptly borrered twenty dollars uv him. Fz wlii-kcy wuz free, that wuz enull to take me home nnd suthin to pay Hasconi on account. The innruiu uv the first ilav tho dulesa- shun from the decstrik I helpt to represent, met. i nere wuz twenty delegates present, aud n more earnest set uv men 1 never mingled with. Five uv cm wuz ex-post-1 masters who bed bin nppuitcd by the saint- ed Johnson, aud most outrageously dis- j nusst by the despot who is now President ; i two uv em were ex-collectors, three ex-as- ! sessors, and the ten rcniainin wuz a bilin i with indigiiushun becoz the otliises in their respectiv towns wuz filled, they swore, with me most unlit men in tuat sceksluiu. I "Rather thau have the country and the ' servis rooiued," sed one, "I wood hev ac- cepted the Post Otlis myself. I wuz solis- j sited by my fellow citizens to servo em in , that capassity, but no. A military friend uv Grant's who hed served under him, wuz appinted. Wat kin be expected of sich au ' administration !

They were very certain mat un- : less there wuz au immejit change, there wuz nothing ahed but rooin. There cum' in afterward nu ex-member uv Congress, who lied been defeetid for ro-iioiuinushcn i two years ago, and his denuushiashuu uv I ofiis-holdin wuz atl'ectin iu the extreme. We finally got to biznis. One delegate moved that ux-cnllcetor Jawkins net ez -chairman. This prodoost a tearful uproar. ! Immejilly six or eight others wuz uotuina- j led. ! Don't vote for Jawkins," whispered one Reformer, "he wants prominence that ! he may control the nppointmcnts in the decstrik, nnd he's brothers nud brothers-in-law all over it." "Don't vote for that d d Smithers," whispered another, "he wants to be as sessor." To my utter nud entire astonishment. I diskivered the nbmniu fact that evry Re former in the delegation bed suthin in his eye. The caucus wuz linnlly organized by a compromise, and a mini wuz elected chairman who coodu't possibly want noth in, tz he hedn't 1 1 1 o liuanshel slaudin iu his respectiv community to give bonds for -J ." cnytniiig.

He remaikt to me lint he thought he shood go into the Ri-ftpfiu Delegate bizm s exclusively. Tho preliminary biznes uv the conven shuu wuzn't ( uy easier sailin than Iho can cusses. There wuz a li-arltil diversity uv opinion iz to wat wuz first to be dnno. Had it b.en left with Hrowu and Selurtz and a few others, ez wo do iu reglar Dem ocratic convenshiius, it wood hev biu easy enull', but there wuz a dozen or more luna tics who supposed Unit the movement wuz in dead cariust, and who bed ideas to pio mulgate. They made trouble but we soon got iid uv em. To give the convenshuu character wo compelled Senator Fenton to leave tor his home, in Xmi York, and In hev it managed properly Frank Hlair wuz telegraphed for. Then the bi.uis wuz nc tooly commenced, und I wuz iu high feather. It seemed a moral certainty that cither Adams or Davis wood be nominated and wot a glorious prospect opened. Tho Democracy wood adopt cm, the. Reformers wood all vole for em Well, 1 WOndi t.t hev give u C"uledrit ten cent scrip to liev biu ushoored of my posl-ollis iu March next. The platform wuzn't ez much uv a stum Mill block ez 1 supposed it wood be.

Hut Flunk Hlair wuz ekal to llm emergency. Ihe moment ho saw how things wuz, he ordered Hrown to bargain with the delegates to giy Horace the first place nn the ticket and ho the second.

They saw iu tho laif it wuz certain to raise, a cover under wich they cood git back to their old quarters. The reform candidates so haled each other that each voled for Greeley to spile tho other, nud the thing was did. Ilorris Greeley iz the nominee uv the Reformers for the ollis uv President uv the Voonited States. ' There wuz various opinvuns cxprest nv the results.
