Ayer's Sarsaparilla
A compound remedy, designed to be the most
effectual Alterativ that can be made. It is
a concentrated extract of Fara Sarsaparilla,
so combined with other substances of still
greater alterative power as to afford an effec
tive antidote for the diseases Sarsaparilla is
reputed to cure. It is believed that such a
remedy Is wanted by those who suffer from
Strumous complaints, and that one which will
accomplish their cure must prove of immense
service to this large class of our afflicted fellow
citizens. How completely this compound will
do it has been proven by experiment on many
of the worst cases to be found of the following
SonorttiA Airs SonopuLous Complaints,
Emotions and Ebuptivb Diseases, Ulceus,
Pimples, Blotches, Tumors, Salt Rheum,
Scald Head, Syphilis and Syphilitio Ar-
baloia on Tio Douloureux, Debility, Dys
pepsia and Indigestion, Erysipelas, Rose
or St. Anthony's Fire, and indeed the whole
class of complaints arising from Impurity op
The Blood.
This compound will be found a great pro
moter of health, when taken in the spring, to
expel the foul humors which fester in tho
blood at that season of the year. By the time
ly expulsion of them many rankling disorders
are nipped in the bud. Multitudes can, by
the aid of this remedy, spare themselves from
the endurance of foul eruptions and ulcerous
sores, through which tho system will strive to
rid itself of corruptions, if not assisted to do
this through the natural channels of tho body
by an alterativ medicine. Cleanse out the
vitiated blood whenever you find iU impurities
bursting through the skin in pimples, eruptions,
or sores 1 cleanse) it when you find it is ob
structed and sluggish in the veins ; cleanse it
whenever it is foul, and your feelings will toll
you when. Even where no particular disorder
is felt, people enjoy better health, and live
longer, for cleansing the blood. Keep the
blood healthy, and all is well ; but with this
C'julura of life disordered, there can be no
ting health. Sooner or later something
must go wrong, and the great machinery of
life is disordered or overthrown.
Sarsaparilla has, and deserves much, the
reputation of accomplishing these ends. But
the world has been egregiously deceived by
preparations of ir, partly because the drug
alone has not all the virtue that is claimed
for it, but more because many preparations,
pretending to be concentrated extracts of it,
contain but little of the virtue of Sarsaparilla,
or any thing else.
During late years the public have been mis
led by large bottles, pretending to give a quart
of Extract of Sarsaparilla for one dollar. Most
of theso have been frauds upon tho sick, for
they not only contain little, if any, Sarsapa
rilla, but often no curative properties whatev
er. Hence, bitter and painful disappointment
has followed the use of the various extracts of
Sarsaparilla which flood the market, until the
name itself is justly despised, and has become
synonymous with imposition and cheat. Still
we call tliis compound Sarsaparilla, and intend
to supply auch a remedy as shall rescue the
name from Hie load of obloquy which rests
upon it. And we think we have ground for
believing it lias virtues which are irresistible
by the ordinary run of the dincases it is intend
ed to cure. In order to securo their complete
eradication from the system, the remedy should
be judiciously taken according to directions on
tho bottle.

Marriage a la Militaire.
A cerresDondent of the Philadelphia Prei de
votes bis letter of the 19th May to tbe descrip
tion of a wedding in camp, from which we ex
tract the following:
Six bold riflemen, clad In blue, with scarlet
doublets over the left shoulder, bearing biasing
torohes; six glittering Ziuaves, with brilliant
trapping?, sparkling in the light; and then the
hollow equare, where march the bridegroom and
bride; then seven tows (of six groomsmen la a
row, all armed cap-a pie, witn burnished weap
ons, flashing back the lustre of the Zjuave uni
form; and all around the grand regiment dark
ening the White tent-folds, as their ruddy faces
are but half disclosed between the red and yellow
glare of the fires and tbo soft, silver light of the
May-moon. (Tbis is all, jou will bear In mind,
out in the broad, open air. The encampment
occupies a conically shaped bill top, flanked
around the rear aresceat by a wood of fan leaved
maples, pprlukled with blossoming dogberries,
and looking out at the cone upon the river
swards below. The plain is full ot mounds and
ridger save where it bulges in the centre to a
circular elevation perfectly flat, around whioh,
like facades around a court-yard, are arrayea
the spiral tents, illuminated in honor of the
comine: nuDtials.) The bride is the daughter
of Abe regiqeut; tho to-be-husband a favorite
sergeant, niarcning thus, preceaea oy ine
two files of sixes, and lollowed by the glitter

moved out the great tent on the edge of the cir
cle, and comes slowly, amid the bold strains of
that grand Dtr Mttdtchummernachiitrom to
ward th, regimental chaplain.
You have seen the colored prints of Jenny
Llod on the back of the music of "Vive a lit
France." You have noted the light flowing
hair, the soft Swiss eye, the military bodice,
thecoquetlsh red skirt, and the pretty, bunkined
feet and ankles underneath. The print is not
unlike the bride. She was fair-bired, blue
eyed, rosy checked, darkened in their hue by
exposure to the sun, in just the dress worn by
It fillet du regiment. Sbe was formed in that
athletio mould which distinguishes the Amazon
from bcr opposite extreme of frailty. You
could not doubt her capacity to undergo the
fatigues aud bardubips of a campaign, but jour
mind did not suggest to your eve those grosser
and mote masculine qualities which, whilst girt
ing the woman with strength, disrobe her of
the purer, more effeminate traits of body. You
saw before you a young girl, apparently about
eighteen years ot age, with clear, courageous
eyes, quiverless lip, and soldierly tread a veri
table daughter of the regiment. You have seen
Caroline Richiogs and good old Peter(St. Peter!;
march over the stage as the corporal and la fill.
Well, this girl, barriug the light, flaxen hair,
would remind you of the latter, drilling a (quad
off grenadiers.
The bridegroom was of the same sanguine,
Germanlo temperament as the bride. As he
marched1, full six feet in height, with long.light
colored beard, high cheek bones, aquiline nose,
niercine, deeply-studded blue eves.broad shoul
ders, long arms, sturdy legs, feet and hands of
laborious development, cocked nac, witn Dine
plume, dark blue frock, with bright scarlet
blanket, tartain fashion over the shoulder,
small-sword, you would have, taken him for a
hero of Sir Walter. Faith, bad Sir Walter
seen him, he himself would have taken him.
In default, however, of Sir Walter, I make bold
to aDoronriata him as a hero on the present oc
casion. Indeed, be waa a hero,' and looked it,
everr inch of him, leading that eelf-sacriflcing
girl up to the regimental chaplain, with bis robe
and surplice and treat book, amid the stare of
a thousand anxious eyes, to the music of glori
ous old Mendelsohn aud the beating of it thou
sand earnest hearts!
Tho music1 oeased; a silence as calm as the
silent moon held the strange, wild place; the
fires seemed to sparkle noiselessly in reverence;
and a little white cloud paused in its course
across the eky to look down on the group below,
the clear voice of the preacher sounded above
the suppressed breathing of tbe spectators aud
the vague burning of tbe fagot heaps; a few
short words, a few heart felt prayers, the lormal
legal ceremouial, and the bappy "amen." It
was done. Tbe pair were man and wife. In
rain or sunshine, joy or sorrow, for weal or wo,
bone of one bone, and flesh of one flesh, for
ever and ever amen ! .
The eroom'a people formed a hollow equare
around the newly wedded couple. In one corner,
a gateway was left for the entrance of the men.
Then came, one by one, the members of that
troop, with a kicd woid each, as each touched
tbe bride lightly on tbe cheek, and grasped tbe
bridegroom heartily by the hand of one the
sworn fathers, of tbe other tbe friends and broth
ers, comrades in arms. - w '
Where was her mother? Gone i Rone away
off beyond those clouds that play about the moon.
There she stood, out in ine open nigni, nuocr
the glare of the flames and the moon, without
another female soul near her, a lone orphan, far
from home and the companions of home. There
she stood a single, brave-hearted girl, father
less and motherless, save in the hearts of those
thousand surrounding soldiers, who amongst tbe
conflicting emotions of ths march had not forgot
ten their vows to protect and cherish ber, tbe
daughter of the regiment. There she stood by

Education of the Heart.
We command tbe subjoined Judicious remarks
from the London Quarterly Review, to the dis

'It Is the vice of the age to substitute learn
ing for wisdom to educate the bead, and for
eet that there is a more important eduoation
necessary for the heart. Ths reason is culti
vated at an age when nature does not furnish
the elements necessary to a successful culti
vation of it; and the child is solicited to re
flection when be is only capable of sensation
and emotion. In infancy, the attention and the
memory are onlv excited strongly by things
which impress the senses and move tbe heart,
and a father shall instill more sona ana availa

seems to have been strained, and the founda

of maturer years are stuffed into a ehild's bead,
people do not reflect on ine anatomical uoi mat
the brain of an infant is not the brain of a man;
that the one is confirmed and ean bear exertion
the other is growing up, and requires repose;
that to force the attention to abstract facts to
load the memory with chronological and his

ohild's brain to bear tbe exertion of a man's, is
just aa rational as it would be to bssard tbe same
sort ot experiment on 11s muscies.

"Up to the seventh year of life, very great

these are withheld, the consequences will be
certain to extend themselves ever tbe whole fu
ture life. The seeds of protracted and hopeless
suffering, in innumerable instances, have been
sown into the constitution of tbe child, simply
through ignorance of this great fundamental
physical law; and the time has come when the
united voice of these innocent victims should
ascend, 'trumpet-tongued,' to the ears of every
parent and every.teacher in the landt "Give as

One of the Mississippi volunteers, writing

I shall now let my pen run free a little and
tell you "in its own feeble way" of the life we

' "keeping' pace with the melanoholv notea of '
the death march, tbe procession passed along; 4
no member of it apparently less troubled than
he whose eonduot was Its cause and whose death -wu
Its objeot. Ia the beautiful Orientalism of
Sir William Jones, the dying only smiled while '
all around him grieved, flis heart told him '
that a life honorably spent in pursuit of glory
wouia not leave nis name to oe enrolled among
those of the Ignoble or guilty many;and his face
spoke the serenity of an approving and ondis-'
mayed conscience. - From time to time. ss be

hanged, but to be shot to death: and the inner
guard in attendance lie took to be the firing par-'
ty detailed for the oocasioo.' Not until the'
troops turned suddenly, at a right angle with
the course they bad hitherto followed, and the ,
gallows rose high before bim, was he undecelv- .
ed. In the very moment of wbeelioe with h's
escort, bis eye reeled on tbe ill-omened tree; '
and he recoiled and paused. 'Why Ibis motion.

voidable, sir,' was tbe reply. He-beckoned -
Tallmadge and inquired anxiously If be was not
to be shot: 'Must I then die in this manner?' '
Being told that it was so ordered ' How hard is "
my fate!' he cried; 'but It will soon be over.'
Ascending tbe bill-aide, the prisoner was
brought to the gibbet, while the outer coard se
cured the ceremony from Interruption. During '
the brief preparations, bis manner was nervous
and res'less, uneasily rolling a pebble to and
fro beneath the ball of bis foot, and the gland
of his throat sinking and swelling as though be
choked with emotion. His Bervaut who had fol
lowed him to tbis point now burst forth with loud
weeping and lamentations, and Andre for a me-
ment turned aside and privately oonrersed with
him. He shook hands with Tallmadge.who with- .

cross-tree, into which be leaped lightly, though
with visible' loathing; and throwing his bat
aside, removed his stock, opened his shirt-col-,

Going with the Girls.
The entrance into society may be said to take
plaoe immediately after boyhood has passed
away, yet tbe multitudes take the initiative be- .
fore tbeir beards are presentable. It is a great
trial, either at tender or a tough age, lor an
overgrown boy to go to the door, knowing that
there are a dozen girls inside, and knock or r log
with an absolute certainty that in two minutes
all tbeir eyes will be upon bim, is a severe test of '
courage. To go before these girls and make a
tour of tbe room, without stepping on their toes,
is an achievement or which lew boys can boast.
If a boy ean go so far aa to measure off ten
yards of tape with ooe of the girls and out It
short at each end, he may stand a chance to
spend a pleasant evening, but let bim not flat
ter bimseir mat all tbe trials or tbe evening
are over.
There comes, at last, the breaking up. The
dear girls don their hoods and put on their
shawls, and look so mischievous and saucy, so
nnlmpressible and Independent, as if they didn't '
wish anyDoay to go noma with them. I hen
domes the pinoh, and the boy who has the most
pluck goes to tbe prettiest girl in the room,
his tongue clinging to the roof of his mouth,
and crooking out bis elbow, stammers out ths
words, "Shalt I see you homel" 8he touches
her finger to his arm, and they walk home feol
tog as awkward as two gosllos. As soon as she
Is within ber own door, be struts some, snd

done it.

the sex pretty well, but their experiences may '
have been different. Karr says: "In a wo-..
