Poetry ;
THE LITTLE SHROUD.
She put on hira a snow-white shroud,
A chaplet on his head;
And gathered early.primioses
To scatfeger the dead.
She laid hitn in his little grave,
('Twas hard to lay him tliere,)
When spring was putting (orth lts flowers,
And every thing was iair.
She had l'ost many children now
The last of them was gone ;
And day and night she sat and wept
Beside the funeral stune.
One midnight, while her constant tears
Were fafiing with the dew,
She heard a voice, and lo! her child
Stood by her weeping too.
His shroud was damp, his face was white,
He said, "I cannot sleep,
Your tears have made my shroud so wet,
Oh, mother, do not weep!"
Oh, love is strong! the motker's heart
Was filled with tender fears;
Oh, love is strong, and for her child
Her grief restrained its tears.
One eve alight shone round herbed,
And there she saw him stand
Her infant, in his little shroud,
A taper in his hand.
"Dear moiher, bco, xay shroud is dry,
And I can sleep once more!"
And beautiful the parting smile
The littlepnlant wore.
And down wilhin the silent gravc
He laid his weary head;
And soon the early violets
Grew o'er his grassy bed.
The mother went her household ways-
Again she knelt in prayer;
And only asked of heaven its aid
Her heavy lot to bear.
From a Western Paper.
MY UNCLE'S PLUM PUDDING.
Reader, I believe I must tell you astoiy about
my Uncle's plum pudding. This was a dish
that Uncle Samuel's numerous family were very
fond of. You must know that he had the charge
ofsome dozen roystering youngsters, whom he
found it very difficult to please. He was very at
tentive to their wants, and furnished them daily
with fresh plcs, tartscustards, and otlier nick
nacks in extravagant'abuHdance. But the little
fellows aftera whilagotrigj6f these, and began
to cry alqjyui for somethiBftjiew, and something
better. The mzxiiXifb&mZMtrodvKlion of the
plum pudding to'?fBefMlBthe dainty com-
plainants was as fblkflwilWfeev began anon, I
say, 10, 10 cumpiain oiafefaavarieu sameuessanu

succeeded, and daily increased, andpiesandtarts
were carried from tne table untasted. This pla
ced Uncle Samuel inrather a mortifyiug and
perplexing situation. TjlBfiwigsters must bc
gratified that was nccejiufo the peace and
unionjof the family. HowTenould itbedone?
Uncle!Suel loved his nephewsand godsons

with wKiSflhe would laydown his cane, cross

a noisybatchof children, manifested the intcrcst
he felt in their hapiness and comfort. He was
sitting alone one day, worrying himself upon this
point, when he was disturbed by a little fellow,
who came bouncing into his study, cxclaiming
with a yell of delight:
" Uncle, uncle ! come down ! do ! hcre's a man
that's got the uieesl pudding O 'tis so good !
you'll buy it won't you, uncle?"
" We'U see. child," said Uncle Samuel ; and
pickingup his cane, he followed the intruder
down stairs.
" Dear uncle, do hare some made !" was heard
on all sides. A pastrv cook had entered with a
fine plum pudding, steaming temptingly on a
large platter. He had given them all a taste.
They were cnchanted, and manifested their de
light in boisterous shouts.
" What is your name, sir?" said uncle Sam
uel. " Nicholas, sir."
" Do you make such puddings ?"
"I made that, and have made many more.''
" Will you live with me, and make my family
a pudding like ihat evcry day?"
" I will, sir."
" Then go into my kitchen and go to work."
The thing was fixed Uncle Sam was reliev
ed; the children capered for joy, and good order
and contentment was again restored. ' From that
time the plum pudding was on the table every
day, and great was the destruction thereof.
Now this state of things was too happy to last
long.
You must know that Uncle Samuel, in order
to have some sort of regulation in his family, ap
pointcd now and then a monitor or moderator,
whose duty it was to see that every thing went
on properly and amicably; settleall trifling dis
putes, and excrcisc a little authority when neces
sary, to quell any disturbance, or prevent mis
conduct, The monitor at this time happened to
be a head strong, self-vrilleil rcistcrer, by the
name of Andrcw. His intimate associates were
a bully named Thomas,ond a little cunning red
headed sneaking meddler named Martin. These

Nicholas the paper that noted the date of the ter

surpnse or regrct. and immediately left the house
"Now tre' make a pudding," said Andrew.

Allwasconfusion and disorder and a general
rush was made for the kitchen-each one deter

and achmg noses were abunda t : for Andrew
had forgotten his duty and authority in the eager
ness with which he desircd to commence his ex
periment in plum pudding making ; a desire to
meddle with that about which he knew nothin"
The manufacture was commenced. A larre iron

was tlirown into the pan in ad libilum quantities
-raisins handfulls-and eggs droppedm by
the dozen ; as each one crackcd a shellupon the
edge of the pan. Spoons, sticks, and forks, sery
ed to beat up the delectable mass, and the whole
was poured into a bag and tied up-this was
thrown into the pot, under which a brisk fire was
kindled. and the whole affair seemed to be going
offcrackling. - . .... ,

To' take off the pot, untie thc bag, and throw
inahandful of salt, was quick work; and the
pot aain swung with it treasure over the blazing
faots. It had'Kut just got well boiling again,
when another miittered the suspicion that they
had forgot the sugar.
"Fact!" said Martin "baul off the pot!
Francis, bring the sugar bowl."
In a few mmutes the flames were again curl
ing about the bottom of the smutty kettle, and a
sputtering and bubbling began that made the
three chief cookies chuckle with delight.
"Martin, don't you reckon its done ? It's din
ner time."
Martin ventured to assume that it was done ;
and the majority backing his assumption by an
open declaration that it was undoubtedly thor
oiighly done, the pot was taken from the firej and

Just about this time, Nicholas, happehing tbtie

have spitted him upon the spot. Thc outbreak

following extract from a private letter received
from AUahabad, of the 7ih of April, we rcgret to
learn that the plague is making feaiful ravages
among the native population of lndia: ' We
hcar that ilie plague is invading thc company's

one place has been carrying off 5,000 in a day.
A fatal sickness is also prevailing at Benares ;

This mortality is chieily confincd to the native
population ; but there have also been many sud

he was a corpse. Mr. Dudley was in the 28th

St. Locis, (Mo.) Aug. 19.
We have again to record a most melancholy
accident upon one of our stcamhoats. About 3
o clock on ihe morning of the 15th of August, the
steamboat Dubuque, Captain Smoker, on her
passage from St. Louis to Galena, collaped the
tlue ol her Iarboard boiler, by which accident
twenty two persons were dreadfully scalded
sixteen of whom are since dead. The accident
took place while under way, alongside of Mus
quetin bar, eight miles below Bloomington and
under an ordinary head ofsteam. We under
stand that the boat left the woodyard below
about a quarter past 2 o'clock, and had ran safely
a onguniil3 o'clock, when the explosion took
place. The pilot immediately put the boat a
shore and effected a landing.
As soon as the noise of the explosion had sub-
sided.and it was possible to make their way to ,
the after part of the boiler deck, an examination
was made, when it was found that the whole had
been literally clcared of freight and every thing
which stooi in the way. The unfortunate deck
passengers were all terribly scalded, together
with the cooks and several of the hands. Many
of them, In their agony.fled tothe shore, stripped
themselves of their clothes, tearing off with them
much of theskin. It was several hours before
any of them died; and not until a boat could be
despatched lo Bloomington, and return, that me
dical assjs"tarf:e couldbe obtained. At 11 o'clock,
the steavciuM Adventure, Captain Van Houten,
came"V-STvSft the wreck and took her in tow a
far as BIMHington. A letter from a passenger
in the RffMqiie, dated at that place, says : " It is
due to Csplain Smoker, the captain of the Ad
venture, tie citizens of Bloomingtion, and all
others whj had an opportunity of rendering any
assisiance to say that they did every thing in
their powef to relieve and mitigate the pains of
the unfoit mate sufferers."
The Dlbuque is about two years old, and no
accident f the kind has ever happened on bpard
of her. Phe was brought to this port yesterday
by the sislter, and now hes at the dock, aper

received from individuals of the highest respccta
bility. They in fact pnye, by ihe cures ihey
make, that there is no necessity for any other
niedicine.
Although Dr. B. has emimeraled by name the
above diseases, he is nevertheless nf opinion with
his Grandlather, the lale celebrated Dr. Wm.
Brandreth, that ihercisonly one disease,an impu
nty of the blood, which by impediug the circula
tion, brings on inflamaiinn and consequent dt
rangenient in the orgao or part where such impu
rity of the blood iettles; and that it is the difler
ent appcarances which ihis infiamaiion or de
rangement put on, that have caused niedical inen
to designale such apiearances. by varions naraes,
but which are in fact, on thc same discasc, with
more or less virulence. Dr. Wm. Brandreth was
so fully convinced of the truth of thc above sim
ple theory, that he spent 30 years in experiment
and laborious research into the mediciual proper
ties of ihe n'lmerous plants composing the Vejre
table Kingdom ; his object being to compose a
medicine which should at once purify, and pro--duce
by sprcific action, a rcmoval of all bad hn
mors from the blood by ihe stomach and bowels,
as by thecontinuation ol'the use of such & niedi
cine, such huniors are suro to be carried off, and
the blood assume a state of punty ; and whoevtr
takes these Pills, and persevere wiih them, will
be satisfied that Dr. Wm. Brandreth fully atl jin
ed hii philanthropic object. Ii is now an abso
lute and well known lact, thal every ilisease,
whether it be in the head or feet, in the brain or
meanest member; whether it be an outward ul

from mar.y causes, reducible tothis one grand el-
fect, niiniely.impunty ol blooti.
In all cases ihey will' be found a safe and sim
ple remedy, yet all powerful for ihe reinuval of
disease. whether chronic or recenl, inlectious or
otherwise: and what makes them particularly ad
apted to this cDiiniry, is that there is not the

yir-'DICATION. Dr. Btandrelh has been as
sailed by ihe proprietors of oiher medirincs as a
mercenary quack, because he i. said to recomineiid
his medicine in large quantities, and that no good
medicine is so required. The fact is, that any
medicine having Mercury, Arser.ic, Antimony, or
Hemlock in it could noi bs taken in large doses,
because if it were, such medicines would desiroy
li!e at.once. He does not say the medicines to
which he alludes have those ingredients in ihem,
but it is evident, from their directions, tha. great
care is required in the laking of them. Now,
