Wasting the precious midnight oil Un leader and column and line. Working from morn till night, Working from night till morn. Oh, why was that power-press ever made, Oh, why was the editor born ?

And for whom arc the laurels To stand in the foremost rank Of each hard-fought party fray— To toil and toil and only get Abuse and neglect for pay. Toil, toil, toil l What a thankless task is ours, To bake the bread and press the cheese, That Senat, r Jones devours !

CS)ur (Dlio. Proflt of Fish-Farming. That the «ulturo of fresh-water fish as a branch of farming will pay where the nat ural advantages exist, cannot be any lon ger considered an open question. It has been too ofetn and too clearly demonstra ted to admit longer of a doubt. Seth Green bought his now famous fish farm near Mumford N. Y. fur $2000. He fit ted it up with hatching apparatus, and a year afterwards sold a half interest in it for $0000. In 1800, his profits $1000 : the next year they amounted to $0000. n During 1808, his sale of eggs and young fry alone amounted to $10, 000, leaving out of consideration the prin cipal income from the sale of the fish. Mr. Green, speaking from his experience, once said, that "an aero of good water can be made to produce twice as much as an acre of land." It was Francis Francis, the first fish farmer of England, who said that sowing of fish was twice as valuable as a sowing of corn. Dr. Thaddeus Norris es timates the annual cost of breeding ten thousand yearlings, eight thousand two years old, and seven thousand 8 years old trout at $706.60; the receipt from the sale of their product, without decreasing the stock on hand, at $6100—a net profit of over $5000. Mr. Ainsworth of West Bloomfield, N. Y. found on his farm when he purchased it, thirteen or fourteeu small springs, not one of them of sufficient vol ume to fill a good sized quill. But by col lecting their several streams into one he secured a volume of one inch of rather va riable water—variable not only in temper ature, but ingredients ; yet ho makes tbiu supply of water sufficient for a pond of fourteen feet deep, and covering sixty rods of ground—formerly a useless marsh ; and in this pond and accessory popls he keeps from fifteen hundred to two thousand trout, which he feeds to his family, and about dozen farm laborers, and yet manages to sell eggs to the amount of at least $500 y_e»r. In England and Scotland, entire rivers are farmed this way. The Galway, Scotland, was rented in 1852 to a fish far mer named Ainsworth, who began to stock it with salmon. In 1858 he took thousand six hundred and throe fish; 1854, three thousand one hundred and fifty-eight; 1861, eleven thousand and fifty-one, and in 1864, twenty thousand five hundred and twelve—all this without decreasing the original stack. At the same time the same gentleman rented the river Tay for $40,000 per year ; in 1854 he had to pay $45,000, and in 1864 the rent had ad vanced to $75,000. The profits of the fishery were so great that not only tho lessee justified in paying this rent, but he was enabled to build a breeding estab lishment superior to any outbuilding in France. Every farmer in the United States who has the uecessary^upply of water can in like manner become a breeder of fish, with liko profit to himself, and aid also in stock ing public wnters with his surplus eggs.— Hearth and Home. were a a A kind physician, living near Boston, wishiug to smooth the last hours of a poor woman whom he was attending, asked her if there was anything that he could do for her before she died.

Tke Great Remedies for all Diseases of the likfr, STOMACH, OR DIGESTIVE ORGANS. IIOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS Is composed of the pure juices (or, ns they are medicinally termed Extracts) of Boots, Herbs, and Burks, making ft preparation, highly concen trated, and cntirely/ree/z-cwi all alcoholic 'admixture of any kind. Hoofland's German Tonic A the Is a combination of all the ingredients of the Bitters, with the purest quality of Santa Cruz Rum. Orange, &c. making one of the most pleas ant and agreeable remedies ever offered to the public. Those preferring a Medicine free from Alcoholic admixture, will use Hoofland's German Bitters. Those who have objection to the combina tion of the Bitters, as stated, will use Oil HOOELAND'S GERMAN TONIC They are both equally good, and contain the same medicinal virtues, 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 Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Nervous Debility, etc. is very apt to have its functions deranged. The Liver, sympathizing as closely ns 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, Sinking or Fluttering at the Pit of the Stom ach, Swimming of the Head, Hur ried or Difficult 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 su red 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 wc would submit those well-known remedies— a in in S A 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 humanity to a gi'^tçr extent than any other remedies known to the public.

Persons advanced in life and feeling the hand of time weighing heavily upon them, with nil it* attendant ilia, will find in the use ofthis 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, nnd give health and happiness to their remaining years. ; invalid bl NOTICE.
