An Kiu battled Island.
A aroadetful stream is the river of Time,
Am it rans through the roalms of tears,
ftiultless rhythm, und a mimical rhyme,
Wltti
And a broader sweep, and a surge sublima^
And blends with the ocean of years.
There's a musical Isls up the river of Time,
Where the softest airs are playing
There's cloudless sky and a tropical clime,
And a soitK as sweet as a vecpcr ehirae,
And the tunes with the roses are staying.
And the name of that Isle is the Long ag*
And we tuny oar treasures ther®
There are brows of tieauty, and bosoms of snow,
They are heaps of dust, but we love them so!
There are trinkets, and (rccses of hair.
There are fragments of son* that nobody sins*
And a psrt of an iafaat's prsyer,
There's a lute naswept, and a harp without
strings,
There are broken rows, and pieces of rings,
And the garment she used to wear.
There ura hands that are waved whan the fairy
shore
By the mirage is lifted in air
Aad we sometimes hear, through the tarbalcnt
roar,
Sweet voices we heard in days gone before,
When the wind down the river is fair.
0, remembered for aye be that blessed Isle,
Ail the days of our life until night
And when evening comes on with it* baaatiful
smile,
And our eyes are closing in slnml»er awhile,
May that greenwood of soul he in sijrht.
At the present time, wu need a high
el conception ot individual rights and
responsihlities. Without this, we arc
liable to lose what iiiilu freedom is em
bodied in the government under which
we live. There can be no safety for our
republican institutions when the popular
idea of liberty is cuntounded with law
less striSe and unprincipled usurpation.
Our strength does not consist in the mere
exercise ot external {lowers, and the de
velopment of our physical resourse?. It
is not in the finny an 1 navy.'
The strength o( a nation does not con
sist in such things. The ancient Repub
I lies were the strongest in their infancy.
Be assured, we are only free when we
are enlightened and we are strong only
[when we live truly. And it is true of
nations, as well as of inJivibuals, tint iu
ithede^rco that they live righteously,
they live safely and honesty is the best
policy, for nations a# well us for men.—
i Honesty is the only policy that will pre
serve our institutions from certain des
truction.
We go on, adding Stat.- after State to
our Republic, but who cannot see that
the Union i* growing weaker every day?
The power that holds the Union together
at this time is far less secure thau it was
twenty years ago. What, I ask, wi'l be
the result, if this state of things continues?
If we add to our domain Slate after State,
and do not at the same tune increase the
internal moral power which holds the
elements together 1 What, I repeat,
will'e the result? Surely this: Tlie
elements which compose this vast body
will fall assuuder from their own weight.'
And in tins they will but follow the ir
resistible law of nature.
The, Two Parties—We were not a
little amused on Wednesday at the re
ply of an Uhio drover to a city !itician,
who inquired which of the three parties
was the strongest in the Uuckeyo State.
Three parties said he in astonish
ment, three parties! Why, wc don't
know but two in Ohio.'

And he opened his mouth teftdy to

Some lime since I noticed in the Gazelle
a statement that a large number of hogs
had died in distillery peiih and elsewhare
with a disease resembling eholem, that r,ZV°^
could not be cured. I suppose that the u 7^
same d.sease broke out among my hots ?!''l*'
several years s.nce. Altera low had l,^f
ditd. I ndontfii Ih,. fidlnuiii.nr i„ „„.i
ditd, I adopted the following remedy aud
cured my hogs, via
1 table spoonfull of common fine salt,
2 fine sulphur,
3 powdered charcoal.
(I prefer col} an
ado fr.»ui sugar tret
wood or solt maple.) Mix above with
one qunrt of sweet milk, (not skimmed or
it will curdle,)if warm Irom the cow it is
tho better. If the hog will not drink it
drench Lim by throwing him on his back,
place a stick in his mouth and turn in the
mcdicine by means of a strong chunk
bottle. I never had to give tho second
dose, a: believe it will cure all cases ol
sick stomach, if administered to man or
beast in proper proportions.
B0TS IU TAR CAN'T BITE.
When a horse shows svmptoinsof bots,
dr?nch him with one pint of tar, heated
as hot as posyible, not to burn il will
enclose the bots instantly, and slop their
biting in about a half an hour after ad
ministering the tar. Give some active
purgatirc I prefer castor oil, given
wfirin: this will bring off the bots and
tar mixed in one mass,
Bots and cholic in horses, in many in
stances, cannot be distinguished, and if
within twenty or thirty minutes alter
gi' ing tlie tar, you fiud ihe animal is not
relieved, give two ounces laudanum and
two ounces sweet spirits nitre, mixed
these remedies may be relied on, the wri
ter has administered them in more than
one hundred cases, and has never met
with the fifft failure to relieve and fully
euro both diseases. Now, who will,
through the same channel, inform the
public of a sure cure for founder in horses,
and oblige a Hoosier,
If the above is considered of sufficient
importance to be worthy of publication
give it a few ii.sertious, and I have no
hesitancy in saying that many horses
will be aired of the above diseases, and
every man who uses the remedy and then
does not subscribe for the Gazelle, should
be compelled to travel on fool t' e remnant
of fcic flajra, and wallow with the hogs.
HOOSIE*.
Singular Presentment. Mr. J. Rogers,
a young man engaged upon this pnper
as a compositor, came to the oflice yester
day morning, and lo'd the hands ne was
unfit to woik. Being asked what ailed
him, lie said that he dreamed during the
night that he *nw his mother it) her coffin,
and tiie dream was so vivid, and had ef
fected him so deeply, that he could not
work. lie remained alwut the office all
day, much depressed iu spirits, until four
o'clock in the afternoon, when he receiv
el a telegraphio despaUi:, .winouneing
to him that his mother
5
lady had i njoyed perfrC! health, to with
in a tew hours oi Ult death, and n com
munication whatever had been received
warning him of her illness. We have
examined into these facts carefully, and
can vouch for thern. The communication
of the circumstances of the terrible dream
was made seven or eight hours before the
telegrup lie despatch was sent. Publicity
would not be given to this singular occur
rence if there existed a shadow of doubt
as to the entire truth of the mam facis.
The death took place 011 the morning of
yesterday at Niagara, C. W., 22 milea
from Detroit.—Dd. Adv. 2d.
Sympathy for the Fallen.—For my
part, I coufess I havo not the heart to
take an offending man or woman from
Ihe general crowd of sinful,erring beings,
and judge them harshly. Tho little I
have seen of the world, and know of the
history of mankind, teach' 3 me to look
upon the errors of others in sorrow, not
ang r. When 1 take the history of one
poor heart that has sinned and suffered,
and represent to myself the struggles and
temptations it has passed, the brief pulsa
tion of joy, the feverish inquietude of
hope and fear, the tears of regret, the
feebleness of purpose, the pressure of
want, the desertion of friends, the scorn
of the world that has but little charity, tlie
desolation of tho soul's sanc'uary, and
threatening voice within, health gone,
even hope, that stays longest with u»
gone, I have !i*tie heart for aught else
but thankfulness, that it is not so with me,
and would fain leave the erring soul of
my fellow being with Him (rota wlioee
hands it came.
"Even as a little child,
Weeping aad laughing in iu childish sport."
A Curiout Plant.—The Baton Rouge
(La.) Gazdk mentions that a gentleman
residing ai Livingston Parish, La., has n
veiy singuUi plant in his garden, which
appears lo be a sort of connecting link be
tween the animal and vegetable world*.
The plant is about three feet high, and
the atems reach the ground. At the end
it is armed with a small sharp substance
with which it pierces inst cts and lifts
them into its calyx, where the y are grasp
ed by the plant und appropriated to its
support.

It is not great calamities that embitter
existence it is the petty vexations, the
small jealously,the little elirappoinlmenu,
the minor miseries, that make the heart
heavy and tho temper sour. Don't let
them. Anger is a pure waste of vitali
ty. It is always loolish, aud always dis
graceful, except 111 some very rare enses,
when it is kindled by seeing wrong done
to another and
even
seldom mends
that noble rage
line
matter. Keep in
jjoou hutnoi.
No man does his best except when he
is cheerful. A light heart makeih nim
ble hands, and keeps the mind free und
alert. No misfortune is so great as one
that sours the temper. Until cheerful
ness is lost, nothing is lost. Keep
good humor.
The company of a good-humored man
is a perpetual feast he is welcomed eve
tywhere—eyes glisten at his approach,
nud difficulties vanish in his presence.—
Franklin's indomitable good humor did
as
much
for his country in tlie old Con­
gress as Adam's fire or Jefferson's wis
dom be clothed wisdom wnh amies, and
softened contentious minds into acquics-

Keep in gyoJ humor.
A good conscience, n sound stomach,
a clean skin are elements of good humor,
(jet them, and keep them and—be sure
to

Thompsons Ilatik JVoitand Commercial

'Photographic counterfeiting, of which
we have heretofore spoken, and treated

had taken largo amounts of the spurious
notes, and«it was found iruposible to tell
an original note of the denominations of
1000 Irances, from the counterfeited.'
It is a notorious fact, that never before
was there such a variety, and so largo an
amount of conuterfeit and altered paper
in circulation. Not a day passes but more
or less—and many of them new are of
fered with good money at our counter.—
With all the care and vigilance we are
