THE INFLUENCE OF WOMAN.
We love to contemplate the influence ol wo
man in refined society, as well as to trace to
its origin the power she here possesses. In the
savage state, she is the slave of her lordijr
j husband, and the menial in her own family.
In the half civilized, she may not be so very a
slave, but she is far removed from rational
companionship with her brothers or even her
husband. She is not even here a help-meet
for her husband.” In highly civilized coun
tries, she is raised to the place she ought to
fill, and her universally acknowledged. To
this effect, Christianity has contributed more
than all other causes It has done this by
maintaining the equality of the sexes in rela
tion to eternal responsibility. It has placed
the immortality of both, on the same ground.
It has asserted the same moral capabilities,
and the same religious obligations. Hence, it
has implied intellectual capacity, for to be
either felt or performed, duty must be known,
and obligation must be a matter ol clear dis
cernment. Hence it is, that the Gospel lias
civilized while it has christianized, and has
especially exerted its power on the female
mind ami in the elevation of the female cha
racter. It has placed her in a higher and no
bler sphere of action, and it lias fitted her for
filling that sphere. The power she has acqui
red is not physical power; her arm is not wield
ed with more of natural energy: it is not civil
power, for man lias not given her more rights
and privileges of a political character. But, it
is a moral power—a power to operate on the
manners and actions from her influence upon
the good sense and the better feelings of lord
ly man. It is not a power which carries her
out of her sphere, but preserves her in it; lor
it is connected with knowledge—of her rela
tions, and obligations, and duties—which win
not suffer her to depart from her place if she
were disposedj to do it—knowledge, which
gives her a moral energy, which is resistless
whenever virtue and virtuous principles sway
her mind; or, which makes her a fiend tnoar
na te, wherever principle is wanting. In either
case, it is a moral power woman exerts, ami
in either case the value of her influence is seen
and felt to be prodigious. The high inoral
powers and tiie eternal interest of the undy
ing soul, are considerations which demand that
her influence, as they do that man’s influencg,
should be exerted in the promotion of the
highest good of herself and of the human fa
mily. » er influence is connected with reli
gion, that we may have the sanction of reli
gious truth in calling forth that influence ol
females which is so important to the success
of this cause. Upon whom, then, can she ex
ert her influence?
Upon her husband. By a judicious course,
she can induce almost any husband to banish
intoxicating liquors from his family and his
field of labor. She can draw him by the silken
chain and by all the blandishments of love al
lure him to walk only and continually in the
happy paths of temperance.
She can influence her brother. A sister's
affection comes with a mighty power over
him who iias been cradled in the same love
and dandled on the same paternal knee.—
How can he remember her gent’eness and
the kindly power she has often used over him,
and see her attempt to remove him from the
poisonous cup forever, and not feel how “aw
ful” is the power ol goad ness. It is impossible.
You must take the brother, whose heart lias
already been in part brutalized by the baleful
spirit of intemperance, to find one inaccessi
ble and uninfluenced by the affectionate per
suasions ofhis sister.
She can influence her lover. In view of ob
ligations, and their design to avoid the evils I
of intemperance,, she can bring every real j
lover to pledge himself to the unwavering sup
port of this cause forever She has every in- i
ducement to refuse an alliance which does not
premise entire security. The drunkard’s
home should never be contemplated as her
possible habitation. There is no effectual se
curity to be found, except in the principle of

She can influence her children. Mothers
can avoid the formation in their children ol
a taste for alcholic stimulus, and they can
detect and expose the snares which beset the
feet of their children.
Females can influence others. Personally,
they can put themselves under the salutary
restraint of the pledge, and they can induce J
others to do the same. No suspicion of
any evil design can be made against the effort.
—No abridgment of rights or privileges, can

of kindness. “Behold, the destroyer has gone j
forth; the demon of intemperance devastates j
the fairest portions of the land : hold no inter- ;

over vour own hearts, and that lie destroy not
your domestic peace and enjoyment, and that
he cut not olFall religious hope for eternity.”

AN INTERESTING CASE.
Extract ofa letter from Mr. C. S.Clay, Kings
ton, Ulster county, N. Y, to the proprietors:
Yours of the 9th instant was duly received
A remarkable cure was effected by the Vegc
table Pulmonary Balsam in 1 he winter am
spring of 1835. The person, Mr. Moody, fa*
been sick a long time with the consumption
His physician had gi>'ip him up. He wa s n
duced so low as to be unable to help himse!
and was raising a large quantity of blood whe:
he commenced using the Balsam, wmcli effect
ed a complete cure, and he is now as hole ant
hearty as ever he was. Mr. Moody lias re
moved from this town, but he has promised
me a more detailed account of Ids case, whici
1 will forward you. C. .'s. Clay.
Kingston, N/V. June 25, 1838.
The vegetable Pulmonary Balsam has been
sold in this county for two years, and tin
medicine h *s gained an uncommon celebrity
for it Parcel/ in o\w instance failed of ha vim
the desired effect. 1 am by no means in fa
vor of the nr ay ^osti urns, >nost of which an
impositions, upon a credulous public, but ihat
which I know by experience to be effectual
1 cannot help but give my approbation to.—
A counterfeit preparation has been offered
by a travelling agent of Comstock. N. Y; and
there is also anotlxer article vended here thai
is strongly suspected to be spurious.
JACOB MYERS, M. D.
Mifflinton, Juniata co. Pa May 3, 1-37.
It k now more than six years since I wav
brought very low by an affection of*the lungs,
and my complaint was declared to be incura
ble by a council of three physicians. I v/a>
then restored to as good health as 1 l ad en
joyed for many years by using the Vegetable
Pulmonary Balsam. Since my recovery 1
have recommended the balsam in a great
many lung complaints, and so far as ! can
learn its use has invariably been followed by
much benefit, and in many instances it has
effected cures which were whoilvunexpected.

Boston, March 2, 1837.
Counterfeits! Beware of Imposition!!
Each genuine bottle is enclosed in a blue
wrapper, on which is a label signed Sampson
Reed.
NONE OTHER CAN BE GENUINE.
DC/"The great celebrity of tnc Vegetable
Pulmonary Balsam has been the came of at
i tempts to introduce spurious articles, which by
! partially assuming the name of the genuine,
are calculated to mislead and deceive the pub
lic. Among these mixtures are the ‘Ameri
can Pulmonary Balsam,’‘Vegetable Pulmona
ry Balsam,’ and others. Purchasers should
| inquire ibr the true arii :ie by its whole name—
The Vegetable Pulmonary Balsam, and see
that it has the marks and signatures of the
genuine.
Each bottle and seal is stamped ‘Vegitable
! Pulmonary Balsam.’ Sold by Druggists gen
erally—price 50 cents.
