The Song of the Locomotive.
BT H1XRT M. LOCK*, JK.
Beware I beware ! for I come in my might!
With a scream, and a howl of acorn;
With a apeed like the mountain eagle’s flight,
When he rides the breeic of mom.
Ararat, avaunt, for I heed you not,
Nor pause for the cry of pain ;
I rejoice o’er the slaughter my wheels have wrought,
And I laugh at the mangled slain.
Away, away, o’er valley and plain,
1 sweep with a voice of wrath;
In a fleecy crowd I wrap my train,
As I tread my iron path.
My bowels are Are and mv arm la steel,
My breath Is a rolling cloud;
And my voice peals out as I onward wheel,
like the thunder rolling loud.
AU day, all day, do my sinews play,
When the sun’s bright rays are cast,
At the midnight hour I fly on my way,
Like a death-fiend howling past.
I bear the wealth of a thousand dimes,
The pearls of the briny sea.
The produce of lands where the church-bell chimes,
And the gold of the dark Calfree.
I roll on the beach of the rolling deep,
Where the sea-shells touch my wheels;
Through the desert land with a howl I sweep,
And the yellow harvest fields.
] speed through the city’s busy streets,
Where the thronging crowd are found,
And they fly at the sound of my iron feet,
like a hare from the baying hound.
I traverse the regions of burning heat,
The Equator hears my scream;
Aud I break the silence of winter's retreat,
Where the glittering snow-field* gleam.
The wild beasts fly when my voice they bear
Through the sounding forests ring,
And the sons of men stand mute with fear;
Of earth I am the ki ng!
A Remarkable Story.
(Prom “Illustrations of Human Life.")
The story to which wo shall now advert has
the double value of being told, we presume, on
Mr. Ward’s personal knowledge, and of illustra
ting the extraordinary chances on which human
life is sometimes suffered to depend. The cir
cumstances ocoured to the well known Sir Evan
Nepean in the home department. The popular
version of the story has been that he was warn
ed by a vision to save the lives of three or four
men condemned to die, but reprieved, and who,
but for the vision, would have perished through
the under-secretary’s neglect in forwarding the
reprieve. On Sir Evan’s Wing subsequently
asked how far this story was true, his answer
was: “The narrative romances a little, but what
it alludes to was the most extraordinary thing
that ever happened to me.” The simple fact as
told by himself are these: One night, during
his office as under-secretnry, he felt the most un
accountable wakefulness that could be imagined;
ho was in perfect health, had dined early, ami
had nothing on his mind whatever, to keep him
awake. Still he found all his attempts to sleep
impossible; and from eleven till two in the mor
ning ho never closed an eye. At length, weary
of this struggle, and as twilight was breaking
(it was summer,) he determined to try what
would l»e the effect of u walk in the park.—
There he saw nothing but the sleepy sentinels,
llut in his walk, happening to pass the home of
fice several times, he thought of letting himself
in with his key, though without any particular
object. The book of entries of the day before,
still lay on the table, and through sheer listless
ness he opened it. The first thing he saw ap
palled him—“A reprieve to be sent to York for
the coiners ordered for execution.” The execu
tion had been appointed for the next day. It
struck him he had received no return to his or
der to send the reprieve. He searched the min
utes: he could not find it there. In alarm, he
went to the house of the chief clerk, who lived
Downing street, knocked him up (it was then
past three,) anil asked him if he knew anything
of the reprieve being sent. In great alarm, the
chief clerk could not remember.
“You are scarcely awake,” said Sir Evan;
“recollect yourself-it must have l»enn sent.”
The cleric said he now recollected he had sent
it to the clerk of the crown, whose business it
was to forward it to York.
“flood,” said Sir Evan; but you have his re
ceipt and certificate that it is guncV’
“No.”
“Then coino with me; wo must find him al
though it is so early.”
It was now about four o'clock, ami the clerk
■of the crown lived in Chancery lane. There
was no hackney-coach to be seen, and they al
most ran. They were just In time. The clerk
•of tho crown had a country house, and meaning
to have a long holiday, he was at that moment
stepping Into his gig to go to his villa. Aston
ished at .this visit of the umler-secretary of state
at such an hour, he was still more so at his bus
iness.
“Heavens!” cried he, “the reprieve is locked
up In my desk !”
It was brought. Sir Evan sent to the post of
fleo for the truest and fleetest express. The re
prieve reached York next morning just at the
moment the unhappy men wero ascending the
•cart.
With Sir Evan we fully agree, In regarding
this little narrltive as one of the most extraor
dinary that wo have ever heard. Wo go further
than he aeknow 1 t god, and say that to us it ap
pears strikin’ cvld nco of what we should con
ceive a superior interposition. It U true, no
ghost nppe ire juv is any prompting voice audi
ble; yet th » i • Jill; depended so long on a succes
sion of seeiu.iig chances, and each of those chan
ces was at once so improbable and so necessary,
that wo are almost compelled to regard the
whole as a matter of influence not to be attribu
ted to man. If the first link of the chain might
pass for common occurrence us undoubtedly
fits of wakefulness will happen without any dis
coverable ground in the state of either body or
mind—still what could be less in the common
course of things than, thus waking, he should
itake it Into his head to got up and take a walk
in the park at two in the morning f Yet. if he
had, like others, contented himself with taking a
walk in his chamber, or enjoying the cool air at
tho window, not one of tho succeeding events
could have occurred, and the men must have
been sacrificed. Or, if when he took his walk,
ho had been contented with getting rid of the
feverishness of the night, and returned to his
bed, the chain would have been broken; for
what was more out of tho natural course of
events than that, at two in the morning, the idea
should come into the head of any man to go to
his office and sit down in the lonely rooms of his
department for no purpose of business or pleas
ure, but simply from not knowing what to do
with himself.
Or, if when lie had let himself into these soli
tary rooms, the hook of entries had not lain on
the table (and this we presume to have been
among the chances, ns we can scarcely suppose
books of this official importance to bo generally
loft to their fate among the servants and mes
sengers of the office;) or if the entry, instead of
being on tho tirst page that opened to his eye,
had been on any other, even the second, as ‘he
might never have taken the trouble of turning
the page; or if ho and tho chief clerk had been
five miuutes later at the clerk of the crown’s
house, and, instead of finding him at the moment
of getting into his carriage, hud been compelled
to incur the delay of bringing mm back from
the country, all the preceding events would have
been useless. The, poople would have died at
York, for even as it was they were stopped on
the'very verge of execution.
Tho remarkablo feature of the whole is, that
>the chain might have been snapped at every
link, and that every link was equally important,
in calculation of the probability of any ono of
these occurrences, a mathematician would find
the chances very hard against the probability of
the whole. If it is asked whether a sufficient
ground for this high interposition is to be dis
covered to save the lives of a few wretched cul
prits,'who, as frequently in such cases, probably
returned to their wicked trades as soon as they
escaped, and only plunged themselves iuto deep
er iniquity, the answer is, that it is not for us in
our ignorance to mete out the value of human
life, however criminal in the eyes of heaven.
Curious and Interesting Fact.— Mr. Meek, of
Santa Cruz, while dressing a healthy bullock, a
few days wince, about six years old, discovered
an ounce ball suspended in a cyst of perfectly
formed membranous tissue, with blood vessels,
nerves and cellular accompaniments, as much as
though it had Iwen one of the necessary original
vital organs. This sac six inches long, formed on
purpose to suspend the ball, was attached to the
fat or adipose matter of the pecardium or heart
sac, where the ball had originally lodged, giving
us a remarkable instance of the protecting pow
er of nature in her operations, although unseen
by human eye, in her labrator of chemical and
mechanical forces.
This ball had passed into the cavity of the
chest through the flank without striking any
hard substance, thereby retaining its smooth
surface, and spending its force in the fat of the
heart, immediately under the adipose membrane
and would by its specific gravity in a very few
days produced sloughing in the membrane and
a consequent injury of the heart sac, by induc
ing inflaination of that vital organ; and further
it would then have fallen loose into the cavity
of the chest, there to have carried on its fatal
work at every movement of the animal —but
nature, true to herself wise and forensic as the
all seeing eye, finding a foreign body of that
weight in so dangerous a position, liable to
prove fatal if it remained, and equally so if it
fell upon the vital parts below, she rallied her
forces, embraced the foreigner as the only alter
native, naturalized him by winding around his
leaden and alien heart the tender and muscular
fibres, making it homogenous with her own vi
tal organs; then she elongated the membrane
supplied it with an entire set of arteries, veins,
nervous lacteals, capillaries and absorbents; and
then let the ball gently down six inches where
it had for three years harmlessly rested among
the viscera of the chest.

I know a great overgrown, first-rate man in
this place, writes a correspondent, in the the
mercantile business, who is much troubled to
recollect names, anil who, one morning, with
pencil in hand, and quill behind his ear, called
out to his partner;
“Billy, what is John Supplebeam’s first name?’
And he never discovered his mistake till he
began to write it, when he forgot the last name;
anil with the same unconciousness, sang out:
“Excuse ine, Billy, but I have forgot John
Snpplebeam's last name now!”
The roar of laughter which ensued, restored
his memory.
A late English periodical contains a review
of “Audubon the Naturalist, in the New World;
his Adventures and Discoveries. By Mrs. Hor
ace SI. John;” in which the book is stated to
“describe his wonderful career and wanderings
among lakes, forests and prairies,” “his life in
the wildest solitudes,” his escapes from earth
quakes, hurricane!, andnesasslns, during his ex
ploration—wo quote literally, “of the territo
ries of Kentucky. Virginia, the banks of the
Ohio and Mississippi, Louisiana, Philadelphia,
and the Floridas!”

Public Notice to the AlllMcil.
Mr. EDITOR:—Sir: It is a duty we owe to the public, and
also Dr. C. H. TOZER of Sacramento, that induces us to come
before the public with the statement wc are now making.
i see that it Is the custom of some Physicians to ndvor
tise their ow n puffs, which read as though you, yourself,
had, without any compensation, put them ini your paper.
There are five ot us that have been under Dr. TozerVs care
tor the last fortnight, with disease* of an extraordinary
nature. One with an old chronic complaint of some years
standing, from which lie had given up all ho)>es of ever get
ting cured, for lie had employed several Physician* without
getting any relief. He was covered with spots and sort.-
from ids ancles to ills head, and he is now free from all
appearance ofdisease, and is in better health than in* has
been for years.
Another of the number came dow n from the most north
ern mines, suffering from what is called Seminal Weakness.
He bad become wo weak that bo could not work from loss
of memory, dlmnes* of sight, Ac. Ac., ami will be happy to
"peak for himself; if any doubt it, he can bo seen at the
above mentioned Dr’s office. The other was a recent com
plaint, and was made a perfect cure of us in six days, and
are now perfectly well and hearty. I myself have been
troubled with a disease lor the last six months, nml could
not get cured in the country ami l came down to Sacra
mento, and happy to say, 1 am now well, for which 1 shall
ever fend grateful, for I think Mr. T.’s great success is in
his unremitting attention, and 1 can recommend him *s
the most judicious practitioner I ever knew.
W. NIXON, near Jackson; J. HAMPTON, Shasta;
H. BANNER, Nevada, M. HUDSON. M’sviUe.
I wish to inform thoso who may need a physician, that 1
can unite with the above gentlemen, and further state,
some few weeks since, T applied to Dr. Toaer for relief, 1 had
been under n I Vic tor’s charge since last October, and was
in such a state of salivation, that I could neither eat nor
s|H>ak, but at present I am pleased to say, that 1 able to at
tend to my business; 1 am much better than l ever expect
ed to be, and 1 would like this opportunity of publicly
thanking him for his unremitting attention to my case and
its perfect cure.
(». BRAMPTON, near Sacramento.
Since the above names were attached, a gentleman who
resides about twenty six miles from this place, has called
at my office, ami give* his consent to the statement of his
case, If his Iium« bo omitted; but, if this statement Is*
doubted, I have a letter from him with his name and ad
dress.
Mr. C—■ — -called upon me last February, and stated
that he had employed a number of physicians for the last
three years, had paid one in San Francisco seven hundred
dollars, and had Ihx'ii perfectly swindled, and was tired oi
being humbugged. His case was one of throe years s tand
lug; it was contracted in the western country, and lie sup
iwised himself cured, but in the course of some months, his
limbs became stiff, bis thixiat swelled, his teeth loosened,
and sores broke out in different ports of his body; I war
ranted his case as I haw he was to be depended on, ami
would pay when lie was cured. He remained under my
can* one week, after which I supplied him with medicine
and advice; in two months, I received a letter of thanks
from him, in which he says, he has done more work this
Spring, than at one lime, and never enjoyed better health.
By this, it can be seen, that persons afflicted with disease
need not go beyond Sacramento City, to tlnd relief.
I am to lie found at my office, on SIXTH ST.. Sacramen
to, from nine in the morning, until eight in the eveniug.—
Persons at a distance can obtain advice by communicating
to me through tho Express, and enclosing ten dollars, post
iiaid. My office i* perfectly private, and all persons can lie
accommodated if they wish to retnaia any time under my
immediate care.

To DR. L. J. CZAPKAY, Dear Fir—Before having made
application to you, 1 had called upon several physicians,
from whom I obtained but little satisfaction. I was told
by one that my disease was incurable, and that the head
ache, dizziness, nervousness, self distrust, loss of memory,
love of solitude, wandering of my mind, and sometimes
partial insanity, were evidences of of organic disease of the
brain, for which medicines would is* of little service.—
Having brought on these symptoms by my own folly, I was
almost frantic with despair, when I saw your fid.\erei.se
inent and called upon you. How great has been my re
lief 1 All of the above symptoms have been relieved, be

there are many suffering in tqe same manner, you have
my permission to publish this letter, aud cau refer any

fearfulness, want of confidence, confusion of ideas, dizzi
ness, restlessness, weakness in the limbs, loss of memory,
dislike of society, nocturnal emissions, and many oilier symp
toms which had made my life miserable; I can hardly express
the gratitude I feel, for my existence had Iweonie a burthen

More horrid yet to die by one’s own band.

Self-preservation, fall by its own act t
Forbid it. Heaven.
The indulgence in secret practices is the moat certain,
though not always the most immediate and direct avenue
to destruction. Physicians of all ages have been most
unanimously of opinion that the loss of one ounce of the
seminal secretions, by unnatural aid or emissions, weakens
the system more than the abstraction of forty ounces of
biood. One of the flrst writers on medical jurisprudence
state that three-fourths of the insane owe their malady to
such abuse.
How iin]s>rtantant then, it is—for every one, having the
least cause to sus]>ec‘t any trouble in that way, to attend to
it immediately; even one single occurrence should Ik* suiti.
cient to cause doubt, and much more so it the person liad
ever indulged in the soul-killing habit. The treatment
used by the justly celebrated I)R. J. U. YOUNG in cases of
seminal weakness, iinpotency, sterility, nervous debility
and paralysis, (the last is the most dangerous, and when it
once occurs, incurable,) to not surpassed by any physician
in the country. It is the same as that followed by him
for years, under the guidance of the world-renowned Record
of Paris, and Acton of I»n<lon. Dr. Young’s office is at the
comer of Montgomery ami California streets, where he can
Ik* consulted on that and all other private diseases, with
the utmost confidence and secrecy. Dr. Young will war
rant a perfect and permanent cure, or make no charges.
N. B.—Letters enclosing $10 will receive prompt atten
tion. The Doctor’s time being so much taken up that he
cannot attend to letters unless paid for it.
A CARD FROM DR. J. <’. YOUNG’S PRIVATE MEDICAL
. OFFICE—To the afflicted.—In this age of progress,
when science is Almost miraculous, everything in common
place is looked upon as not worth notice. In view of this
fact, I)r. Young, (corner of Montgomery and California sts.,
up stairs,) has concluded hi leave the beaten track hither
to pursued by most scientific physicians, (that of waiting
for the public to find you alone.) and pnhlish to the world
as much us may la*, his knowledge of the healing art, to let
those who are in need of assistance know where they can
find relief without fear of being imposed upon.
In continuation of this subject, Dr. Young would say,
that for the past ten years he lias pursued the practice of
medicine in one of the largest, cities in the United States,
with the highest success, ahd that his standing as a physi
cian is without reproach, having at one time been lecturer
at the University of Pennsylvania on veneral diseases.
Upon these considerations, Dr. Young has confidence in
introducing himself to the public, knowing that they will
sustain well earned merit.
The following are a few of the many testimonials which
have apjM*ured in the public journals within the last few
years:
[From the Boston Medical Journal.]
Although we are opposed to the system of advertising,
for good and sufficient reasons, still we deem it hut justice
to sav that Dr. Young Is one of the most industrious and
indefatigable votaries of medical science in the United
States.
[From Professor Jaskson.]
The suliscriber is personally acquainted Dr. Young, and
lias seen much of his practice, and can bear testimony to
h is merits ns a practitioner.
[From the New York Herald ]
'Hie eminence of this distinguished gentleman in his pro
fession, and the very extended opportunities jmssessed by
him for the observation of venerial disease, makes his ser
vices invaluable to those afflicted with the above com
plaints.
[From the Whig and Advertiser.]
All afflicted with private complaints should if ]K>ssihle,
consult Dr. Young, whose medical education is not sur
passed by any Physician in the Country. In his skill, hon
or and integrity, nil inay rely with safety, while most of
the medical practitioners in this city are without honesty
or respectability, their pretensions being grounded in igno -
rance and assumption.
Important to Minor’*, Travelers, Kte.
f IMIKKK is no malady of deeper iinjsirtance, either in a
L medical or moral point of view, hi which the human
family is more liable, than that arising from impure con
nections.
As a medical man it to the duty of every physician to
look at disease as it affects health and life, and his sole ob
ject should he to mitigate, as far as lies in his power, the
iKsflly suffering. Human nature at liest is hut frail, all
are liable to misfortune.
Of all the ilU that atTect man, none are more terrible
than those of a private nature. Dreadful as it is in the
person who contracts it, frightful as are its ravages upon
his constitution, ending frequently in destruction and a
loathesome grave, it becomes of still greater iiniKirtance
when it is transmitted to innocent offspring. Such Is-ing
the case, how necessary it becomes that every one having
tie* least reason to fear that they have contracted the di
sease, should attend to it at once by consulting some phy
sician. whose respectability and education enables him to
warrant a safe, sjioedy, and permanent cure. In accord
ance with this necessity, I)R. YOUNG fee Is called upon to
state that, by long study and extensive practice, ho has
become perfect master of all these diseases which come un
der the the denomination of venereal, and having paid more
attention to that one branch than any other physician in
the United States, he feels himself better qualified to treat
them.
Syphilis in all its forms, such as Ulcers, Swelling in the
Groins, Ulcers in the Throat, Secondary Syphilis, t’ufiine

Strictures, False Passages. Inflaination of the Bladder and
Prostrate (Bands, Excoriations, Tumors, Pustules, &c., an*
as ta miliar to him us the most common things of daily ob
servation.
The Doctor effects a cure in recent cases in a few days,
and finds no difficulty in curing those of long duration,
without submitting the patient to such treatment as will
draw upon him the slightest suspicion, or oblige him to
neglect Ids business whether within doors or without.
The diet need not Ih» changed except ill cases of seven* in
flanmtion. There iu\> in California jsitients (amounting to
over two thousand in the past year) that could furnish
proof of this; hut these an* matter* that require the nicest
secrecy, which he always pn**erve*.
