COMB, IN BEAUTIFUL DREAMS, LOVE. BY UKOKUK 0. I'RKNTICK. Come, in beautiful dreams, love, Oh ! come to me oft, When the light wing of sleep On my bosom lies soft; Oh ! come when the sea, In the moon's gentle light, Beats soft on the ear, Like the pulse of me night— When the sky and the wave Wear their loftiest blue, When the dew is on the flower And the stars on the dew I Come, in beautiful dreams, love, Oh ! come and we'll stray Where the whole year is With the blossoms of May— Where each sound is as sweet As the coos of a dove, 80 ft ucd An . ilie gales are As the breathings of love? Where the beams 1 the waves, the beach, And the waves k And our warm lips may catch The sweet lessons they teach. Conic, in beautiful dreams, love, Oh! conic, and we'll fly Like two-winged spirits Of love, through the sky: With hand clasped in hand, dream-wings we'll go Where the starlight and moonlight Are blending their glow; bright clouds we ll linger, Of purple and gold, Till the angels shall envy The bliss they behold. On And (Dur Olio. a Apogtroiilir to Water. The celebrated apostrophe to water giv en in one of John B. Gough's tempérance lectures is a gem. It is said to have orig inated with a Texas baptist preacher. It is somewhat modilied as used by Mr. Gough. Pouring a goblet of water and advancing towards his audience, and lift ing it above bis bead, be said : " Look at that, ye thirsty ones of earth 1 Behold it ! Behold its purity ! How it glitters, as if a mass of liquid gems ! It is a beverage that was brewed by the hand of the Almighty himself ! Not in simmer ing still or smoking lires, choked with poi sonous gases and surrounded by the steu elies of sickening odors and rank corrup tion does our Father in Heaven prepare the precious essence of life—the pure cold water ; but in the green glade and grassy dell, where the deer wanders and the child loves to play ; there God brews it ; and down in the deep valleys, where the foun tains murmur ami the rills sing ; and high upon the tall mountain tops, where the storm clouds brood and the thunders crash ; and away far out on the wide sea where the hurricane howls music and the big waves roll the chorus, swooping the march of God—there ho brews it—that Ibcverage of life—health giving water—and everywhere it is a thing of beauty : glim mering in the dew drop, singing in the sum. nier rain, shining in the ice gem—till the trees all seem turned into living jewels ; spreading a golden veil over the setting sun or a white gauze around the midnight moon, sporting in the cataract, sleeping in the glaciers, dancing in the hail show er ; folding Us bright curtain softly nbout .the windy world and weaving the many .colored iris, that seraph's zone of the sky, whose warp is the rain drops of earth, whose woof is the sunbeam of heaven ; all «checkered over the celestial flowers by the mystic hand of reflection, still always it is beautiful, tlmt blessed life water. No poi son bubbles on the beaker's brim; its '/ouiu brings no sadness or murder ! JBxtract from tiik Vision of Mikza.— We commend the following allegory by Addison. It was first published in the year 1711, and it truthfully represents the actual facts of a table of mortality : "Thu bridge thou seest," said he, "is human life ; consider it attentively." Upon ft more leisurely survey of it I found that it consisted of three score und ten arches, with several broken arches, which, added to those that were . mire, made up the nutn (be? about one hundred. As I was count ing the arches, the genius told me that ibis bridge consisted at first of a thousand arches, but that a great flood swept away (he feat , and left the bridge in the ruinous condition I now beheld it. '•Rut tell me-further,'' said he, "wliat thou dscoverest ou itï" "I see multitudes of people passing over it," said I, "and a black cloud hanging on each end of it." I looked more attentively, I saw seve ral of the passengers dropping through the Bridge into the great tide that flowed un derneath it*, and, upon examination, per ceived that there were innumerable trap doors that lay concealed in the bridge, which the passengers no sooner hod upon hut they fell through them into the tide, and immediately disappeared. Those hid den pitfalls were set very thick at the trance of the bridge, so that throngs of people no sooner break through the cloud but many of them fall into them. They grow thinner toward the middle, hut mul tiplied and laid closer together toward the ,end of the arches that were entire. There <»ere indeed some persons, hut their num l&er was small, that continued a kind of ibobhling march on the broken arches, but. ffmll through oue after another, being quite tired and spent with s) long a walk. What a beautiful picture of human life jis .it exists and dies out in the present age. The proposition has been made to make a canal across Southern Michigan, to con nect Lakes Michigan and Erie, and thus save the grain laden vessels eastward hound U voyage of about 4<>U miles, which they are now obliged to make around the southern peninsuta of the Wolverine State. Another proposition of a similinr nature is a canal through Canada connecting Lakes Huron and Ontario. Both are said to be feasible, and the latti r can be accomplish ed, the engineers think, for »40,000,000. 'This, however, is not so important as the route from Lake Michigan to Lake Erie, as but a small proportion of tue commerce ftf the lakes extends to Lake Ontario. M. Rochefort, the editor of the "Ijan 1 tern," »t Paris, it is said gets »2,400 a week, or $125,000 a year in gold ! News paper writers will open their eyes at .this.

Those who have no objection to the combina tion of the Bitters, as stated, will use erba, HOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC They are both equally good, and contain the same medicinal vijtues, the choice betw 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. Liver, sympathizing as closely as it does 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, Siuking or Fluttering at the Pit of the Stom ach, Swimming of the Head, Hur ried 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, Back, Chest. Limbs etc. Sudden Flushes of Heat, Burning in the Flesh, Con 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 case, purchasing only that which he is as sured from hip investigations and inquiries, pos sesses true merit, is skilfully compounded, is fi from injurious ingredients, and has established for itself a reputation for the cure of these diseas es.
