The and of MV BOYHOOD*» HUME. fct NOMAD. t'm drenhiittg a dream of long ago, Of the dear old times gone by, When I in my early childhood's home, Laughed as the hours passed by^ And though it is only my fancy's pen That brings past scenes to view, I seem to live o'er my life again, They're so plain to my eyes and true. I Bee the grorc on the spreading lawn Where first my child-feet strayed, And 1 romp again on the wide green sward Whore oft in my youth I played ; I hear the birds in their cArolings On the beautiful morns in May. And once again as in days gone by With my ball and hoop I play. ant v Just at the top of the sloping lawn Where the elra and the locust 9tand, And the blooming lilac meets the view By the cooling zephyr fanned, Where tke Lombardy poplar lifts its head To meet the rising storm, And the mulberry sheds its worm-like flowers, Stands the house where I was born. Its massive walls of uuhewn stone— Full many a mark they bear, Of a childish hand, untaught, unlearned, With a heart untrammeled by cure : For oft have I in my boyhood's days Struck hard on the flinty stone, And laughed in From the walls my glee as the sparks fell round Is of my childhood's home. And oft have I in my earlier day9 Reclined at the noontide hour *Ncath the shadowy arms of the tall old trees That mocked the sun's broad power, And oft to the mowers in the field, In the days of my youth gone by, Boruo cooling draughts from springs that well At the foot of the hill hard by. I see them yet, those stalwart Slow swaving to and fro, While 'ueath their stroke tu Cut by the scythe, falls low, Ï see them too, when homeward bound, Their day's hard labor doue, Pass slowly o'er the stubbled field Lit by the setting sun. Now yonder rill attracts ray gaze, Slow winding through the mead— 'Twas here 1 culled the violets, Nor to fleet time gave heed; Twas oft the scene of boyhood's pranks, Of rambles wild and free, And oft, recliuiug on its bunks, 1 dreamed of times to be. Not far from here, the creek ndown A breast-work plaeed A hundred years The wagons passed acros The silv'ry rill I'm mentioning, Helped swell the rising tide Where I with kindred spirits oft, Swam o'er it side by side. e waving grass, TOSS ore above Now down the stream I cast my eyes— My dream of life is o'er, Where odcc I roamed beueath the shade, The wild trees wave no more ; Where once the wildwood flung its shade O'er hillside, stream, and delj, The brambles link their thorny urm 3 — Rude bauds the trees have felled. Those trees I loved—so fondly loved, Beueath whose boughs I strayed, Oft sought them in the summer time, i And with my brothers played ; Oft sought them in the nutting time, When leaves bestrewed the ground, And echoes from the murd'ring gun Made hiljs r.ud woods resound. The rabbit sought the cooling shade _ The gray squirrel loved so well, partridge took its whirring flight 'here wood-cocks loved to dwell ; The jay, the crow, the busy wren, The wild hawk soaring high, The mcek-eyed robin with her brood, Passed not the green wood by. Unawed by man, by boy, or hound, The chattering ground-squirrel hied, Now perched upon a root or stone The falling nuts he eyed. And oft in autumn's chilly days He robbed me of my prize, ■j Tlie cunning elf 1 would not harm— Just sfre those sparkiiug eyes. Sec ! see those pouching cheeks, That quickly twirling tail, lie's th.re—lie's not so fleet— We'll catch him on that rail. The nuts lie's dropped—he's scared indeed ; I'm sure we have him here— Hallo ! why who'd have tlionght He had a hole so very near. 'Twas often thus in boyhood's days, While roving through the glen, 1 trapped the rabbit and the squirrel— Ah ! 1 was happy then ; I reeked not of the cares of life, 1 thought not of its ill, I cared hut for the wild green wood, And loved its shaded rills. I little thought that troubles came So soon upon tlie mind, I little thought that I should leave . Mv home so soon behind ; I never thought our household group 1 loved so well to greet Would ever be a broken band— So seldom now we meet. Bat ever-changing, restless Time, Unceasing in his round, lias broken in a thousand ways The tics by which 'twas bound ; And I, the youngest of that band, »Self-styled "the wandering one," Have hut one hope—beyond the grave God's holy kingdom won. M The years pass si owl}', one by one, The past The future—ah ! I dare not dream, Past pledges they'll renew. On jMist scenes gone, "but not forgot, My memory loves Lo dwell, It tires not of the dear, dear spot— The home 1 loved well. MIDDLETOWN STOVE HOUSE. S. W.

The Great Remedies for all Diseases of the LIVER, STOMA CU, OR DIGESTIVE ORGANS. HOOFLAND'8 GERMAN BITTERS Is composed of the pure juices (or, as they medicinally termed Extracts) of Roots, lit and Barks, making a preparation, highly concen trated, and entirely freefrom all alcoholic admixture of any kind. Hoofland's German Tonic W Ever partus HE are erbs, Is a combination of all the ingredients of the Bitters, with the purest quality of Santa Cruz Rum. Orange, Ac. making one of the most pleas ant and agreeable remedies public. Those preferring a Medicine free from Alcoholic admixture, will use Hoofland's German Bitters. Those who have tion of the Bitters, as stated, will offered to the objection to the combinn Fine HOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC They are both equally good, and contain the same medicinal viatues, the choice between the two being a mere mutter of taste, the Tonic being the most palatable. The stomach, from a variety of causes such as Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Nervous Debility, etc. is very apt to have its functions deranged. The Liver, sympathizing ns closely as it does with the Stomach, then becomes aflected, 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 at the Pit of the Stom ach, Swimming of the Head, Hur Difiicult A 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 eaution in the selection of a remedy for his case, purchasing only that which he is 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— Hoofland's German Bitters, AND Hoofland's German Tonic PREPARED BY 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 more cures, and benefited suffering iiumHnity to a greater extent than any other remedies known to the public. These remedies will effectually cure Liver C plaint, Jaundice, Dyspepsia, Chronic or Nervous Debility, 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 Ac. There is no medicine extant equal to these 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, und the weak and nervous invalid be comes a strong and healthy being. Persons advanced iu life aud feeling tlie 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 shrunken forms, and give health and happiness to their remaining years. NOTICE. edi It is a well established fact that fully one-lmlf of the female portion of our population are seldom in the enjoyment of good health, or, to use their own expression, "|nevcr feel well." They arc languid, devoid of all energy, extremely nervous, and have no appetite. To this elass of persons the Bitters, Tonic is especially recommended. the WEAK AND DELICATE CHILDREN Are made strong by the use of either of these remedies. They will cure every case ofMaras *""• without fail. TESTIMONIALS. lion. Geo. W. Woodward, Chitf Justice of the Supreme Court of Pa. Yvrites : Philadelphia, March 16, 1867.
