COCK-CROW.
From Homespun.
CoeK-A-DOODI.K-DO !
Where away is the morn,
That you sound your clarion-horn?
Not a streak of light in the east,
Nor the faintest ray
Of dappled gray
Is yet to be seen,*—not the least.
Three o'clock !—that is all ;
And still you sound your call
To all within the house to wake,
And into their hearts their burdens take,
Before ever the day is born !
There is uot a sign of the dawn ;
The stars are burning out, 'tis true,
But no eyes see the day yet coming through ;
The world is fast asleep in the dark ;
Not so much us the sound of the watch
dog's bark ;
And still this Cock-u-doodle-do 1
Cock-a-doodlc-ifo /
The first rich ray of red
Has fallen across the shad :
Aud. from his perch, once more the call
Of tlie warder that keeps watch for us
Shrill, and clear, aud high is the note
ii out that regal throat.
Pulsing its echoes
Through the frosty morning air,
Down the valley clear to the mill,
Ami away to the lop of the nearest hill.
The cattle get up from their long night's bed,
Aud the boards of the floor creak overhead;
The horse looks out from his darkened stall,
Like a lord from the door of his custle-hall ;
Over the roof curls up the smoke
That tells of the stir of thrifty folk ;
their perches crowd along,
*Aroused by their lord's resounding song.
And now the sun's clear, golden ray
Fulls thr
Into the pails full many a stre
Of milk, that is l ien with clotted cream,
Riddles the foam in a zigzag line.
As sweet as the breath of the yarded kine.

There he is, on the garden gate,
('rest erect, and spirit elate;
The rain has been falling all the day
And no eye can
To any lift
That pack the concave in such crowds :—
Bui the chanticleer, he sees the sign,

thread its way
lift in the clouds
Where wisest men can read
A prophet, with
He keeps the secret of the sky,—
A favorite child of Nature he,
That knows the heart of her mystery.
Aud at thut Cock-u-doodle-do,
Aud cheery flap of pinions, too,
The household to the w indows go,
In answer to the cull they k
The sky grows brighter, and the blue
Comes forth at Coek-a-iloodle-do l
instinct high,
Cock-a-doodlc-ifo !
The rival he hus overthrown
Goes reeling to his roost alone;
And he, the royal eonquero.,
With bloody ruff about his throat,
Sends forth his strong, defiant note
To Chanticleers near and remote,
On every farmer's broad hunt-floor.
No shouts from the walls of proud old Troy
Were ever given with half the jov
Tliaf fills the heart of this brave bird,
As he makes the news of his victory heard.
You'd think he was some baron bold,
From whom the rest their tenures hold,
Proclaiming, on the garden wall,
His feudal watch and warn for ull.
Cock-u-doodlc-do /
No house is Home, without that horn
To sound the liours, from dawn to dawn.
Before the eve rise curling smokes,
That come from fires of country folks,—
A stack of roofs,—alow, wide door,—
The thump of flails on a big barn-floor—
A tented held of corn hard by,
About whose stacks great pumpkins lie,—
liens' nests snug hidden in the hay,
And children hunting half the day,—
A garden filled with fruits and flowers,
Where birds make musical the hours, —
Good cheer, warm welcomes, and bright fires,
That fill the wishing heart's desires.
Oh, Chanticleer !—brave Chanticleer I
Thy voice rings through all History ;
Outstarting from the mystery
Of Indian jungles, dark iyid drear,
Thy path has lain through G
To the door of every farmer's home;
They stamped thee on their ancient coins,
And offered thee in sacrifice
Unto their heathen deities,
That sprung from mythologie loins :
And " Plato's man" thou wert, we know,
Above two tltousand years ago ;
And Peter felt his shameful lie
Reproved by thy shrill, chiding cry,
And went out weeping bitterly.
Thy note sends every ghost to bed
Afraid to show its guilty head
When the shadows of the night have sped.
They set the on thus *n 1- st spires,
Above the fog of earth's desires.
A sort of lookout in the sky,
Interpreter of wet and dry,
And cheering souls to victory.

Those preferring a Medicine free from Alcoholic

Those who have no objection to the combina

both equally good, and contain the
They
same medicinal via tues, the choice between the
two being a mere matter of taste, the Tonic being
the most palatable.
The stomach, from a variety of causes such ns
Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Nervous Debility, etc. is
very apt to have its functions deranged. The
Liver, sympathizing as closely as it docs with the
Stomach, then becomes affected, the result of
which is the patient suffers from several or 'more
of the following diseases :
Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles, Fulness
of Blood to the Head, Acidity of the Stom
ach, Nausea, Heartburn^ Disgust for
Food, Fulness or Weight in the
Stomach, Sour Eructations,
Sinking or Fluttering

Breathing, Fluttering
at the Heart, Choking or
Suffocating Sensations when in
a Lying Posture, Dimness of Vision,
Dots or Webs before the Sight, Dull
Pain in the Head, Deficiency of Perspiration.
Yellowness of the Skin and Eyes, Pain in the
Side, Baek, Chest, Limbs etc. Sudden Flushes
of Heat, Burning in the Flesh, C
stant Imaginings of Evil, and
Great Depression of Spirits.
The sufferer from these diseases should exercise
the greatest caution in the selection of a remedy
for his ease, purchasing only that which he is as
sured from his investigations and inquiries, pos
sesses true merit, is skilfully compounded, is free
from injurious ingredients, and has established
for itself a reputation for the cure of these diseas
es. In this connection we would submit those
well-known remedies—
Difficult

Hoofland's German Bitters,
AM)
Hoofland's German Tonic
PREPARED DY DR. C. M. JACKSON,
PHILADELPHIA, PA.
Thirty-five years since they were first intro
duced into this country from Germany, during
which time they have undoubtedly performed
*e cures, and benefited suffering humanity to
a greater extent than any other remedies known
to the public.
These remedies will effectually cure Liver Com
daint, Jaundice, Dyspepsia, Chronic or Nerv
)ebility, Chronic Diarrhoea, Diseases of the Kid
neys, and all Diseases arising from a disordered
Liver' Stomach or Intestines.
DEBILITY.
Resulting from any cause whatever; prostra
tion of the system, induced by severe labor, hard
ships, exposure, fevers *c.
There is no medicine extant equal to these rem
edies in such cases. A tone and vigor is impart
ed to the whole system, the appetite is strength
ened, food is enjoyed, the stomach digests pro
perly, the blood is purified, the complexion be
comes sound and healthy, the yellow tinge is
eradicated from the eyes, a bloom Is given to the
cheeks, and the weak and nervous invalid be
comes a strong and healthy being.
Persons advanced in life and feeling the hand of
time weighing heavily upon them, with all its
attendant ills, will find in the use of this Bitters,
or the Tonic, an elixir that will instill new life
into their veins, restore in a measure the energy
and ardor of more youthful days, build up their
shrunkeu forms, and give health and happiness
to their remaining years.
NOTICE.
It is a well established faet that fully one-half of
the female portion of our population are seldom
in the enjoyment of good health, or, to use their
n expression, "jnever feel well," They are
languid, devoid of all energy, extremely nervous,
and have no appetite.
To this class of persons the Bitters, or the
Tonic is especially recommended.
WEAK AND DELICATE CHILDREN
Are made strong by the use of either of these
remedies. They will cure every cuse of Maras
mus without fail.
TESTIMONIALS.

Philadelphia, March 16, 1867.
" I find Hoofland's German Bitters is a good

gans, and of great benefit in cases of debility, and
want of nervous action in the system.
