PA., FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 20, 1873. BALTISIORE LOCK HOSPITAL D R, JOHNSTON, Physician of this celebrated Institution, has discovered the most certain, speedy, pleasant and effectual remedy In the world for nil DISEASES OF IMPRUDENCE. Wenknees of the Back or Limbs, Strictures, A flections of Kidneys and Bladder, Involun tary Discharges, Impotcncy, General Debili ty, Nervousness, Dyspcpsy, Languor, Low Spirits, Confasion of Ideas, Palpitation of the Heart, Timidity, Tremblings, Dimness of Sight or Giddiness, Disease of the Hond, Throat, Nose or Skin, Affections of Liver, Lnngs, Stomach or Bowels these terrible Disorders arising from the Solitary Habits of Youth those secret and solitary practices more fatal to their victims than the soug of Syrens to the Mariners of Ulysses, blighting their most brilliant hopes of anticipations, rendering marriage, Ac, Impos sible. TOC NO MEN especially, who hnve liccome the victims of Soli tary Vice, that dreadful and destructive habit which annually sweeps to an untimely grave thousands of young men of the most exalted talents and brilliant Intellect, who might other wise have entranced listening Senates with tbe thunders of eloquence or waked to ecstacy tbe living lyre, may cull with full co itlduncc. MARRIAGE. Married Persons or Young Men contemplating marriage, nwnre of Physical Weakness, (Loss of Procreatlvo Power Impotcncy), Nervous Ex citability, Palpitation, Organic Weakness, Ner vous Debility, or any other Disqualification, speedily relieved. He who places himself nndor the care of Dr. J. may religiously confide In his honor ns a gentle man, and coulidcutly rely unon his skill ns a Phy sician. ORGANIC WEAKNESS, Impotency, Loss of Power, Immediately Cured and full Vigor Kcstored. I This Distressing Affection which renders Lli'o miserable ftiul marriage impossible Is the penalty paid by the victims of improper indulgences. Young persons are too npt to commit excesses , from not being aware of tho dreadful conscoenccs that may ensue. Now, who that understands the subject will pretend to deny that the power of procreation is lost sooner by those falling Into improper nanus than ny the prudent I Besides being deprived tbe pleasures of healthy offspring, t he most serious and destructive symptoms to both body and mind arise. I be system becomes de ranged, the Physical and Mental Functions Weakened, Loss of Procreatlve Power, Nervous Irritability, Dyspepsia. Palpitation of the Heart, Indigestion, Constitutional Debility, a Wasting of the Frame, Cough, Consumption, Decay and Death. A CURE WARRANTED IN TWO DATS. Persons ruined In health by unlearned preten ders who keep them trifling month after mouth, taking polsoooua and injurious compouuds, should apply Immediately. 1K. JOHNSTON, Meniler of the Koyul College of Surgeons, Lon don, Graduated from one of the most eminent Colleges In tbe United States, aud the greater part of whose lfo has been sjient in the hospitals of London, Prls, Philadelphia and elsewhere, has clloctsd some of tbe most astonishing cures that were ever known j many troubled with ring ing in tho head and ears when asleep, great nervousness, being alarmed at sudden sound, hnshfulucss, with frequent blushing, attended sometimes with derangement of miud, were cured Immediately. TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE. Dr. J. addresses all those who have injurrd thouisclve by linproer indulgence and solitary habits, which ruin both body and mind, uiilllting them for either business, t-tndy, society or mar riage. Tiirhb arc some of the sad and melancholy effects produced by early habits of youth, viz : Weakness of the Back and Limbs, Pains in tbe Back and Head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Mus cular Power, Palpitation of the Heart, Dyspcpsy, Nervous Irritability, Derangement of Digestive Functions, General Debility, Symptoms of Con sumption, ifec. Mentai.lt The fearful effects on the mind arc much to be dreaded Loss of Memory, Con fusion of Ideas, Depression, of Spirits, Evil Forebodings, Aversion to Society, Self-Distrust, Love of Solitude, Timidity, die, are some of the evils produced. TuoubANbs of persons of nil ages can now Judge what Is the cause of their declining health, losing their vigor, becoming, weak, pale, nervous and cuiuciuted, having a siugulur appearance about the eyes, cough and symptoms of consump tion. YOUNG MEN Who have lujurcd themselves by n certain prac tice Indulged in when alone, a habit frequently learned from evil companions, or at school, tho effect of which are nightly felt, even when asleep, aud If not cured, renders marriage Impos sible, aud destroys both mind und body, should apply immediately. What a pity that a young man, the hope of his country, tbu darling of his parents, should be snatclici from all prospects and enjoyments of life, by tbu consequence, of deviating from the path of nature and Indulging In a certain secret habit. Such persons mit before contemplating MAKRIAUE, reflect that a sound mind and body are the most necessary requisites to promote connubial happi ness. Indeed without these, tbe Journey through life becomes a weary pilgrimage) the prospect hourly dnrkcus to the view ; the mind becomes shadowed with despair and tilled with the melan choly reflection, that the happiucss of auotber becomes blighted with ourown. A CERTAIN' DISEASE. When the misguided and imprudent votary of pleasure finds that he has imbibed tho seels of this painful disease, It too often happens that an ill-tlined sense of shame, or dread ef discovery, deters him from applying to those who, from education and respectability, can ulone befriend him, delaying till thecom-titiitionul symptoms ot this horrid disease make their apiieurauec, such a ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose, uoctural pains In the head aud limbs, dimness of sight, deafness, nodes on the shin bones and aims, blotches ou the head, face and extremities, pro grrsslug mitb frightful rapidity, till at lust the palate of the mouth or tbe bones of the nose full in, and the victim of this awful disease becomes a horrid object of commiseration, till death puts a period to his dreadful suffering, by sending him to " that Undiscovered Country from whence no traveller returns.' It Is a meluncholy fact that thousands DIE victims to this terrible disease, through falling into the hands of Ignorant or unskillful PRE TENDERS, who, by the use of that deadly Pol ton, Msrcury, &c, destroy the constitution, and incapable of caring, keep the unhappy sufferer month after month takiug their noxious or in jurious compounds, and instead of being restored to a renewal of Life Vigor und Happluess, lu des pair leave him with ruined Health to klgh over his galling disappointment. To such, therefore, Dr. Johnsto pledges him self to preserve the most Inviolable boerecy, and from hi extensive practice and observations iu the great Hospitals of Europe, aud tho first In this country, vl : Euglund, France, Philadelphia and elsewhere, 1 enabled to offer tho most cer tain, speedy aud effectual remedy in the world for all disease of Imprudence.

ENDORSEMENT OF THE PRE83. The many tjiousands cured at this Establish ment, year after year, and the 'numerous im portant Surgical Operations performed by Dr. iohastou, witnessed by tbe representatives of the press and many other paper, notice of which have appeared again and again before tbe public, beside hi standiug as a gentleman of character and responsibility, 1 a sufficient guarantee to the aWlcted. fchiu disease speedily cured.

Tho city slumbers I O'er Its mighty walls Night's dusky mantle, soft and silent, fulls t Sleep o'er Urn world slow waves Its wand of lend, And ready torpors wrap each sinking head. Sillied is the slirof luhor ti ml of life Hushed is the hum and trunqulllzel the strife. Man Is at rest with all his hopes and fears The young forget their sports, tho eld their cares; The grave or cureless, those who Joy or weep, All rcRl contented on the arm of sleep. 8weet Is tbe rest of pillowed beauty now, And slumber smiles upon the tranquil brow. Bright ore her dreams yes, bright us heaven's own blue, Pure as Its Joys, nnd gentle as its devr. The lead her forth along the moonlit tide, Her heart's owu partner wandering by her side. 'TIs summer's eve ( the soft gales scarcely rouse The low-voiced ripple and tbe rustling bouuhs t And, faint and far, some inciting minstrel's touu Ureal lies to her heart a music like Its owu.

A WOMAN'S (Ol lt AGE, The blooJ-rcd light of sunset wns mirror cd itself in crimson sphishcts in tlio turbid tides of the great Western river ; the black bird was sounding its sweet whistle through the old primeval forests ; nnd .Jo nathan Iteers, silting at his cabin door, smoked liis solitary evening pipe, and thought vnguely of the clniich-bells that used to ring at evening tiino in the far-oil Eastern village where he had been bolt: aud brought up, with the roar of l'euubscot Jiay in his cars. "I'd like to hear Ihem bells once agaiu aforti I die," mused old Jonathan. "Hut it aim likely I'll ever go back now." Kveu while these disjointed meditations passed through his miud there was a light step on the cabin threshold, aud the rustle of st i illy starched pink cnlico.and his uioce lOrothy came to tlio door. "Tea's ready, uucle dear," said she. "And I've baked a real New Kugland corn-bread, and some ginger-snaps, such ns grandmamma used to make. Aud sec, uncle, I've sliced up the little red peaches from Ihe tree you planted yourself on the south side of the hill. Israel Kdtnaync said it wouldu'l grow, but it has. 1 mean to keep a sauceri'ul, and a little cream for Israel to-night, just to slww him." Old Jonuthau laid dowti his kuife and fork. 'Do you mean that Israel Esninyne is coming here to-night V 'Yes, uncle,' said Dorothy, stooping to recover a tea-spoon she had dropped a spoon with an antique silver shell carved ou its handle and coming up very rosy from the search. 'Why not V Take care. Dotty. Ttiiit'a all !' 'Uncle, what do you mean V 'I mean, child, that I'd rather lay you in your grave in the tiew Lurrying-ground, where there's ouly one mound yet in the shadow of the church spire, than to see you married to a man who drinks ! That's what I uu an. Doity !' Dorothy's head drooped over her plate. 'Uncle, that is hardly fair. JSecauso a man had a bud habit ouce ' 'And has it note ." The soil eyes gliltod into a delimit flash. 'You arc mistaken, uncle. Israel Es iniiyne has not touched a drop of ardent spirits iu a year. He has promised me ne ver to touch it ngain !' 'I iiope ho never will, my girl,' said Jon athan liccrs, although his tone betrayed no very sanguine feeling. 'Hut it ain't a safe thing to do. It's a madness. love of liquor is, nud nothing short. It's liable to break out at any time. Israel Esmnyue's a good fellow enough. I hain't anything agin him but it ain't mfe !' Dorothy wag'ailcut. Why was it, she asked herself, that nu n were so severe in judging one another? Why did they al ways look ut the blackest and least promis ing sido of everything ? Israel had prom ised her. .Shu believed him. And that was enough. Aud while she triped lightly back nnd forth about her household duties, her mind was full of the uudeliucd future. Sho could see herself shadowy and undelinud as iu a mirror, moving about a bright little homo where flowers bloomed iu the case menu, and birds sang, and a clock ticked, 'He is coming I he is coming 1' One of these days I' said Dorothy to her self, as she put away the saucer of peaches and a little pitcher of thick cream on a whitely-scoured pnotiy-shelf 'one of these days I' She was thinking of the future. And old Jonathan, smoking hi pipe, was liviug in the past. 'You've somethin' to do with tho rail road, stranger, haven't you V 'I reckon I hnve,' said Israel Eatuayue Indifferently. 'I'm switchman.' It don't take up iuucu of your time, I guess ?' 'It's got to bo looked after just the same, though-,' said th3 tall WcstcriMr, aa he lift- , New Npi-lesj, Vol. , 22. !

'Nine o'clock.' 'Do you suppose I could go to Mcllen ville and sec tho lumber dealers there, and get back to tho station n,nin by that lime V Israel looked reflectively at the other shore of the river. "Well, you might,1 said he ; 'but it would be a pretty tight squeeze.' 'I'm a good walker,' said the stranger; and as he spoke he drew a Hat pocket-flask from his pocket, uncorked it with his teeth, and d rank a copious draught. Israel Es ninyne watched him with eager, glittering eyes, like those of some famished wild ani mal that scents blood. Have a drink, friend V' said the stron ger, proffering the flask. Israel Esrnayuo shook his head, with set teeth and lividly palu cheek. 'I never drink.' said he. hoarselv. 'You would. I guess, if you could get such stuff as this,' said the man; soft ns oil and strong as fire. My father imporled it. There's not much like it in the coun try. Taste, if you don't believe me I' Israel stood for a moment, hesitaling. Then ho cast an eager glance to the right and to the left, as if half fearful lest some one should see him, and grasping at the bottle drank I The fevered blood mounted to his check; a strange sparkle came into his eyes. 'Have you more like that?' he whisper ed, hoarsely, approaching his buruiug lips so closely to tho man's ear that he involun tarily started. 'More ?' 'I've got another flask, but ' 'Will you leave it behind ? I'll pay you a good price for it." What for ?' Israel's eyes fell guiltily. 'In in case or sickness you know. We can't buy such I liquor nere anu it s a lonely spot.' 'Your right enough there,1 said tho man, laughing, us he drew out another flask, the mate to the first, 'Here, lako it. l'shaw, friend, put up your purse. You're wel come to it as a gift.' And ho was gone, plunging through the high grass nud bushes, all fringed with scarlet cardinal-flowers and nodding mari golds, before Israel could slay him. Israel Esmayue crept back to his house, or, rather, the rude log cabin which was a sort of hostage that one day a real home should rise on its foundations, holding the flat bottle close to him, and glancing around with furtive wandering eyes. 'I needed it,' he said to himself; 'yes, I needed it. I didn't know how much until I tasted it. Just one more taste. It slips over one's palate like glass, so smooth, so rich, so full of strength. One more taste, and then ' When the clock struck nine tho whistle of the way train sounded faint and far olf, and Esmayne rose uncertainly to his feet. The subtle, burning fumes of the liquid flame had entered into his braiu ; the walls seemed to real about him, tho stars to swim in tho great blue tirmaiueut over head. Xothing was real all was faint and far oil" and visiouary. But the chains of habit are hard to shake olf: and Israel had gone out at uitie o'clock every night for a year, t! roping his way, and walkiug with slow, and unsteady steps, he went. still clasping the partially emptied flask to i his breast in the inner pocket of his coat, j He could hear the rush of tho river be-, low ; he could see the rails of the track glis- : tening iu the faint starlight ; and median- j icully feeling under a cluster of spice bush- i es for the owitch key, he knelt down and i stupidly fumbled there an instant. j 'The way train,' he muttered to himself, i 'It's all right. And theu the freight train ! half-past nine a quarter to teu '; and ' j He stooped down by the river-house and i wet his burning forehead with the cool j drops ho could scoop up in the hollow of his hand. He sat do'wu ou a fallen tree, und let his head fall in his palms. j Am 1 drunk i" lie muttered, halt aloud. 'O liod I have 1 come to tins in spite of everything V Aud the memory of Dorothy liecrs and his sacred promise to her rose up iu his miud, as one sometimes remembers prom ises to the dead. In all tlio wild, wide, reeling, rocking world of his braiu thero was but one certainty. He had lost Doro thy, his soft-stepping, swvet-eyed, redeem ing angel the one in all the world who loved and trusted him most implicitly. 'I don't deserve her,' ho thought, scarce able to shajie definite thought iu his chaotic mind ; 'but if 1 had talleu down dead be forebefore I touched that accursed stuff! .She would have believed iu me then.' The fresh, cool night air on his brow was sobering him a lit t lo ; the touch of the cold river water cleared the mists of hi clouded brain iu some degree. He rose up, steady ing himself by the stem of a young while birch tree that grew close beside him, aud looked urouud. Hark! a clear whiotle, half a mile awny, cleaving the silence like the call of some sweet-tliroaled bird. It was the express, whose plume of lurid smoke spanned half a coiitini ul-the long serient-like train, glittering with lights, and carry iu:! a great eye of lire iu front, which uiglitly thumb-red over the lino of rails, and shot likeu meteor nut of sight in to the hush aud silence of the woods, west ward bound. The way train passed at nine, making a brief stoppage at Hurslley station beyond, a mere wooden shed with a platform ou ei ther side. Half un hour afterward u slow and heavy freight train followed it.tuuuing olfonabide track toward the river-shore until the express should have safely passed. Aud it was the secial business nf Israel Esiuuvtic lo set the switch for the freight aud subsequently replace it for the hurry ing express. Had he done this ? Willi an awful doubt poisoning his heart, he pressed his bauds to his tem ples and tried to think, lie had been there he could recall just how the dewy rails looked, wet and glistening in tho star light. Hu had had the, switch-key in his hand that he could also remember, liut was that before or after the freight had switched oil? He could not ruueiulier whether the freight had passed or not. He did uot know whether hu had locked the switch twico or once, or, good Heavens! not at all. The past was it swaying va cuum, tho future strange and dream-like. Ho closed his eyes, ho pressed his temples aa if either hand had been a vice of iron, iu tlio wild asrouuiiug effort lo recall tlw last half hour. " 'O (iod !' lie groaned aloud, aa ho thrcrt himself right on his face on tlie wet grass, 'am I goiug mad ?' Something hard struck against Ids breast bone as he flung himself down t it was tho fatal flask. He lore it out, half full of dark red poison, and dashed it passionately into the bushes. It waa that futf that had done all the mischief.

Tho earth beneath his groveling bnast thrilled and quivered as the expies trnin Hew over the rails, and Israel Esmayno held his breath, innmelilarily exiiccling the, awful crash which would siniu his soul with the eternal brand of Cain.

Hack Two women two ships ; rt sailor holding a flag ; a largo picture of' Mrizeppa ridiug tho wild horse. There was a blucksmilh's "strike" in a. Pennsylvania town receutly, and an old farmer couldn't get his mule thod ; so he concluded to do the job himself'. He said that anybody that ever saw a mule ought : to be able to shoo one, aud ho didu'tcare if the blacksmiths "struck" all summer. Ho tied liia mule under a shod, procured a shoo of the right dimensions, a hummer, nails! and other necessary utensils, uud went to work, "Whoa, Jerry !" ho lomarkud, as ho tapped tlio animal on the hind leg. "Jerry "left oil' eatiug oats, turned hin head , around, nnd smiled. Then the farmer liflei'.'. the mule's hind leg repeating " Whott, Jer- ry !" and commenced to fool around his ' hoof. The amateur blacksmith was bent . like a croquet wicket, with his back to-, wards Jerry's bow, so lo speak, when the mule reached around and playfully seized', his master's garniculs just Mow his rear . suspender buttons. " Whoa, Jerry," the ' farmer agaiu remarked, ns he gave rt aud-. deu jerk, falling on hie lace, aud leaving a bunch of cussiiiieru iu tho auimara mouth Then tho owner of the mule scrambled on' his feet, returned to the job of shoeing in n wny that showed he was in earnest, nnd grasping the mule by the hind leg, yelled iu a voice that was full of busiuess, "Hist, ' Jerry !" And we aro pained to sav that ' Jerry "hinted." He "lusted" both hind, legs simultaneously, and about the tamo time the farmer was "histcd" ot of tho shed iuto the mi. hie of the rtree!. Ho went out as if he wa1 going to catch the last' train, and hadn't a minute (o spare. When he recovered couscioutucss', and was as-. surcd that a comet had not struck the. earth, Ire said ho "s'poscd ho must have tickled Jerry on' the elbbtf." yorvistotirJ' JhraXd.
