Had raa «rer a cousin, Tom T
Did jour oousia happen to slug ?
«■Mss we're aHbj tbs dosen, Tom,
But a cousin's n different thing,
A.d you'd find, if ever jou'd kiss'd her Tom,
(Though let this be n secret between ns)
That jour lips would hare been la a blister, Tom,
For thej are not of the titter genus.
something, Tom, In n sister's lip,
jo* giro ner n good-nighLkiss,
Thut tarots so much of relationship,
That nothing occurs amiss.
But a cousin's up if jou once unite
With jours in the quietest way,
Instead of steeping a wink that night
Ton'll be dreaming the following day.
And people think It no harm, Tom,
With a cousin to hear you talk ;
And no one feels any alarm, Tom,
At > quiet cousinly walk.
Bat, Tom, you'U find, what I happen to know,
That such walks often go into straying,
And the rakes of cousins are sometimes so low,
Uearen only knows what you'll be saying l
And there happens so often, Tom,
Soft pressure of hands and fingers,
And looks that were moulded to soften, Tom,
And tones on which memory lingers,
That long ere your walk is half over, the strings
, Of your heart are put into play,
By the voice of those demi-sisterly things
In not quite the most brotherly way.
And the songs of a sister bring to you, Tom,
Such tones as the angels woo,
But I fear if your cousin should sing to you, Tom,
You'd take her for an angel too.
For so curious a note is that note of theirs
That you'd fancy the voice that gave it
Had been all the time singing national airs
Instead of the Psalms of David.
I once had a cousin that sung, Tom,
And her name may be nameless now,
But the sound of those songs is still young, Tom,
Though we are no longer so.
'Tis folly to dream of a bower of green,
When there's not a leaf on the tree,
Bot twixt walking and singing, that cousin has
God forgive her, the ruin of me.
And now I care nought for society, Tom.
And lead such an anchorite life,
For I have loved myself into sobriety, Tom.
And oat of the wish for a wife.
But oh ! if I said but half what I might say,
So sad were the lesson 'twould give,
That 'twould keep you from loving for
And from cousins as long as you live.
, Matbimonial Lottery. —A short time
siDoe, at a wedding in South Carolina, a
young lawyer moved that one man in the
company should be selected as president,
that this president should be duly sworn
to keep entirely secret all the communica
tions that should be forwarded to him in
his official department that night, that
each unmarried gentleman and lady should
write his or her name on a piece of paper,
and under it place the name of the person
they wished to marry, then hand it to the
' preeident for inspection, and if any gentle
man and lady had reoiprocally"chosen each
other the president was to inform each of
the result, aud those who had not been
oiproeal in their choiee were to be kept
tirely secret. After the appointment of
the president, communications were accor
dingly handed np the chair, and it
found that twelve vonng ladies and gentle
men had reciprocal choices, and eleven of
the twelve matches were solemnised. Lit
the young ladies and gentlemen try it here.
Tha word "baskin," as used in connec
tion with the theatrical profession, is the
translation of the Greek and Latin word
••Cothurnus," which signifies a high-heel
ad boot or shoe, used by the Greek and
Roman tragic actors to give an appearance
of elevation to their stature, in conjunction
with the mask and other stage properties.
"Cothurnus," in Latin, is used in contra
distinction to "Soccus," the flat-soled shoe
worn by comedians. Hence, in English
authors, the word "sock" and "buskin"
are often used for the purpose of distin
guishing the tragic and comic drama.
Thus wrote Dryden :
''Great Fletcher never treads in buskin here,
Nor greater Jonson dares in Bocks appear."
It is related of a certain minister, who
wu noted for his long sermons, with
tty divisions, that one day when he was ad
vancing among the teens, he reached, at
length, a kind of resting place in his dis
course, when pausing to take breath, he
asked the question, "And what shall I say
more ?" A voice from the congregation
responded, "Say Amen!"

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 as closely as it does with thé
Stomach, then becomes affected, the result of
which is the patient suffers from several or

Hoofland's German Bitters,
Hoofland's German Tonio
PREPARED BY DR. C. M. JACKSON,
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 immunity to
a greater extent than any other remedies known
to the public.
These remedies will effectually cure Liver Com
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.
Resulting from any cnusc whatever ; prostra
tion of the system, induced by severe labor, hurd
-hips, 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 ité
rantes sound and healthy, the yellow tinge is
eradicated from the eyes, a bloom is given to the
cheeks, aud the weak nnd nervous invalid be
comes a strong and healthy being.
Persons advanced in life and feeling the hand of
11 me 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 reins, 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.
It is a well established fact that fully one-half of
the female portion of our population are seldom
the enjoyment of good health, or, to use their
own expression, "jnever feel well." They are
languid, devoid of all euergy, extremely nervous
and have no appetite.
To this class of persons the Bitters, or the
Tonic is especially recommended.
WEAK AND DELICATE CHILDREN
Are mad. strong by the use of either of these
remedies. They will cure every case of Maras
mus without fail.

ing that it has given perfect satisfaction. It 1ms
been the means of selling several in this locality.
D, F. BURTON/
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN. Jan. 29th 1859.—
"The simplicity und accuracy of its nmclmnism
prevent its dropping stitches, to which many oth
er machines are liable, and which 1ms hitherto
brought the "chain stitch" into disrepute. One
cannot but admire the beauty and accuracy of its
movements, and the entire absence yf alt noise,
even when running at the rate of 2000 stitdies
and upward per minute. This alone must prove
a great recommendation to it. Another merit is
the good workmanship. The parts are made in
