WEDNESDAY MORNING,SF.PT’R23. 181P. ’ SCENE IN A RUSSIAN CAMP. Oft the night before our departure from the camp, wft attended, the ‘refraifr,’ one of the most impressive end touching ceremonies I ever be held in my life. The short-lived summer had already beeun to Wine, «nd the cold transparent light, peculiar to i polar evening, waxed fainter, but without the dim, haxy indistinctness, which blends objects into confusion in an English night-fall. Here a aert of subdued clearness of tone brought out in strong relief infinite masses of men, over which the eye ranged exhausted, until the perspective was finally lost in a, row of white tents, standing like spectres against the horizon. The troops had formed a living wall in front of the imperial family, who stood surrounded by the various commanding officers, and all main tained a jilence ‘deep as death’—not a limb stir red—not the faintest breath was heard in the holy calm of the evening; all was hushed and motionless, when suddenly a fugleman gave the •Xpecled signal, and in a moment, every head was bared, and every voice uplifted in the na tional evening hymn. RUSSIAN NATIONAL HYMN. I. How weak our accents, Heavenly Sire! to raise, Worthy of thee, our song of thanklul praise; Great on thy throne of clouds, earth's lower sphere, , And in the meanest dew-drop’s sparkling teai. Bv day and night with radiance girt, O Lord, God omnipresent, everywhere adored! 11. High in the fleecy clouds that glow with gold, The image of thy Godhead we behold. While in the words of thine own hallow’d prav'r We strive thy bo jndles* glories to declare; Accept the grateful homage which we tiling Like frankincense, a constant ottering. 111. Thine is the equal sun, that shines :ihove O’er all the children of thy watchful love,— Watchful to feed them with paternal care, And for thy chos'n a Zion to prepare; THY hand, U.at on the sinner’s head [in wrath] descends, In mere} Mill, blessM food! thy [.avingj body sends! IV. A Imighty! design the humble calls to own We lav before the loo*tm>l ol thy thrt ne! Vouchsafe to grant the blessings we implore, As morn’s soft dew-drops shed their genial st'M'o; While in our hearts to thee we altars raise, Our changeless law shjli be thy pray rand pi j ist?! The music is sweet, solemn, and exquisitely adapted to express the humility ol prayer, and the simultaneous hurst of harmonized sounds swelled, and rose to the vault of heaven with a thriijjng effect, while a yet deeper interest excited by the moral spectacle ot this countless these thousands and tens ol thousands ol Blighty men of war, all equally—trom the ar biter of the fate of million* to the meanest sol united in the attitude of reverent, and meek devotion, and pouring forth, as it were or e foice and one heart, in praise and thanksgiving to their common Maker. It has been my lot to he twice present at mili tary Masses, performed on a gigantic scale, which, however, bore no resemblance to the ceremony which I have so freely attempted to describe. One of them, which took place at Verona, was a mere ecclsiastical tiald day, where the offices of religion were illustrated with the pomp and circumstance of war. The troops were drawn up under arms as if for a review; the arrival of the V iceroy ol Lom bardy was announced by the thunder of artillery booming along the line; and the officiating priest, the minister of that faith which inculcates “good will amongst men”—knelt at the central iltar, amidst the waving of plumes, the glancing of helmets, the clang of sabres, the roll ol drums, the brattle of trumpets, and a grand final opera tic crash of all the bands brigaded en masse.— Even the most solemn and mystic rite of the Ro man Catholic Church—the elevation of the host _was received with the same salute as the pre tence of a mortal monarch. But here was neither proud pageantry to daz zle the eye, nor the pealing strains of elaborate mafic to ravish the ear. All was pure and lowly. The soldiers had laid aside their arms, and the “earthly great” their rank, as if the em blems of physical force, and the social distinc tions of the mere human assumption were incon sistent with the true worship of the God of peace, in whose sight all men arealike, and to whom their united homage was now addressed in the simple words, andjunadorned melody of the national hymn. The Lord's prayer was subse quently read, and we all dispersed in silence to our respective quarters, as if under the influence of feelings too big for utterance. FOREIGN ITEMS. Letters recently received from Jerusalem stile that all Palestine is a prey to the horrors of famine, caused by the drying up of the rivers and streams. At Safet numerous persons had died for want of food. On the 16th ult., Rossini, the celebrated com poser, led to the hymeneal altar at Bologna, Mademoiselle Olympe Pelissier very well known in ^aris. This lady, after a rather gay life was introduced to the Grand Maestro about sixteen years ago. She was pretty, clever, and accom plished, became much attached to Rossini, and has never left him since. The province of Tuscany has been cruelly shaken by an earthquake. Whole villages have been thrown down, and 70 persons, at lea*t, have been killed, nearly 180 wounded, and more than 400 deprived of shelter. The alarm creat ed was naturally most intense; but as there has been no repitition of the shocks, confidence is beginning to revive. In Sicily, also, the earth quake has done great damage, and caused the loss of severa 1 lives. A letter dated The Hague, Aug. 30, say*— Very extensive emigrations are taking place from this country to the United Slates. From the village of Wynstersyk, which consists of on ly 8,000 inhabitants, not less than 950 have gone «h masse. A fall in the value of landed property and houses to the extent trom 25 to 35 percent, has been the consequence. The Government is said not to be without anxiety with respect to these sweeping emigrations. IMMENSE NATURAL BEH1VE. gin a cavern, on the right hank of the Colora do, seven miles from Austin, '1 exa*, there is an immense hive of w ild bees. Ob a warm d a dark stream of bees may be seen constantly wind ing out from the cavern like a long dark wreath of smoke. The stream often appears one or two feet in diameter near the clilF, arid gradually spreads out like a fan, growing thinner and thin ner as ii disappears. 'Hie number of bees in this cavern most be incalculably great, probably greater than the number in a thousand or ten thousand ordinary hives.

The following certificate exemplifies, in a most remarkable manner, the great medical val ue of the Sarsaparilla in a severe case o! Msroi* ula. It speaks a language not to be misunstood. New-Bedford, Mass. Feb. 20,1845. Messrs. Santis:—Eight years ago last March, 1 had what is called the black measles, and the fact of ray blood havingbeen in an impure state for many" vears previous, without doubt greatly aggravated the disorder, and has been the cause of many severe afflictions since; the first of which was an inflamation in my head, causing tot.^ blindness for nearly two years and a ball, am*, at the same time ulcers in my throat that con tinued to eat until my palate was entirely con sumed All this time 1 was under the treatment of physicians without receiving any benefit from them, until through the kindness and skill of Dr. Barlette, my sight was restored to me. Mill a 1 mv other complaints continued the same, and, in addition to the ulcers in my throat, sore* broke out on mv bead and ears, causing deafness atten ded witha severe cough and difficulty of breath in'*, hoarseness, &c.-My sufferings for more than two vears were almost insuppoi table, and * length, i>v the advice of Dr. Kord, I was iiitlu ccd to TV Houck’s Panacea, the efleet of which was to remove the sores from my throat to mv shoulders, which began to swell, ami on which formed hard tumors, accompanied with extreme pain and tenderness. My head and throat soon grew worse than ever, and my throat wa- so sore that it was impossible for me to take medi cine and mv disease continued to rage and in crease to such o degree that 1 could no longer sit up, and for months I was confined to my bed. The cough still continued, and a kind ol slimy water ran constantly from my mouth, my breath ing also became so difficult that l could be lit aid |f over the house. Soft tumors also formed upon my head; rnv tongue and gums swelled and turned while; 'twelve pieces of my upper jaw horn*, together with six ol my teeth, diooped out at different times, and my situation had now become so dreadful, ami my agony so intense, that all hope' ot recovery entirely for>o <k me, and 1 gave mvself up to die. I begged ami proved that God would take me to himself that 1 iinght he relieved from my sufferings. In ad dition to oil the rest, 1 now b. gan to sutler Irom the effect' of hunger, and it was with the great est difficulty that l could swallow any thiugat all, not even a little arrow root gruel, and this did hut little to satisfy the cravings of hunger. Hut notwithstanding the great extremity to which I was reduced, itseenud that my litewas to fie spared, and for what, is best known to my Creator. At this time my elbows began to get sore and swelled very much, and several .sores broke out on different parts ol my arms, which hud the appearance of small biles, and w hich when opened, discharged matter that seemed to poison the parts wherever it touched. 1 had seven ol the>e sores on one aim, and fivc on the other, and at last th y all ran into one on each arm, and ate into the bone. In the mean time l had tried vaiious remedies, but all to no put pose, as it seemed impossible to slop the ravages ol my disease. 1 now became utterly discouraged, despaired of getting relief, and gave inyselt up as incurable. About this time a paper was thrown into the house which contained a certificate of a cure performed in a case similar to my own by Sands’s Sarsaparilla, and calling the attention of one of my friends to it, she said she w ould buy me a bottle and see what effect. it would nave, i had not taken half of it before l was satisfied that it would either kill or cure me, as the sensations 1 experienced were so strange and indescribable that l knew a change either for the better or worse was coming over me. Before the first bot tle w as entirely used, a fine tetter came out all over me, and l began to feel stronger, and was sensible it was doing me good. I have now used six bottles, and I find myself a new creature.— The sores on my arms are healed, and the tumors on my head have all disappeared: my head has also resumed its natural hardness, and the diffi culty of breathing is in a greatmeasure removed. i When l contrast my present situation win* what it was a few months ago, my heart over ' flows with gratitude to my Maker for all his mer cies, and 1 feel it is to you that 1 am indebted, as the instrument of Divine Providence, for my safe deliverance from this severe trial, and shall always pray that you may be rewarded for your kindness to me, an utter stranger. I desire that all similarly afflicted may know there is a balm j for their diseases in your invaluable Sarsapa rilla. Yours in sincerity, MARY FULLER, No. 98 xNorth 2d *t.

Insensible perspiration—The pre ceding figure is given to represent the IN SENSIBLE PERSPIRATION. It is the great EVACUATION for the impurities of the body. It will be noticed that a thick cloudy mist issues from all points of the surface, which indicates it. This perspiration flows uninterruptedly when we are in health, but ceases when we are sick. Life cannot be sustained without it. It is thrown oH from the blood and other juices of the body, and disposes by this means, of nearly every im purity within us. The language of scripture i<, “in the BLOOD is the Life.” If it ever be comes impure, it may he traced directly to the | stoppage of the INSENSIBLE PERSPIRA TION. |t never requires any internal medicine to cleanse it, as it ALVN AYS purifies itself by it. own heat and action, ar d throws off* every of fending humor, through the INSENSIBLE PERSPIRA'I ION. Tims we see that it is ne cessary when the blood is stagnant or infected, to open the pores, and it relieves it-eil from ini I purity instantly. iNownhent and vitality are sufficient, without one particle of medicine, ex cept to open iho pores upon the mu face. Thus we see the folly ol taking so much internal rem edies. Practitioners however, direct their ef forts to re^t re the In-ensibic Perspiration, but it seems to be not always the proper one. The Thompsonian, for instance, steams, the flydropa thiest shrouds uc in wet blankets, the Ilomopa thi>t deals out infimtbsim-ih, the Allopathic bleeds and do.e- u- with mercury, and the blus tering Quack gorges us wi fi Pills, Pills. 10 give some idea oi ihe amoum, ami conse quently the importance of the INSENSIBLE PEIISPIR A'l ION, we wiil state that the learn ed Dr Lewenhcc, and ihe great lioeihave as certained that five eighth-of what we receive in to the stomach, passed otf hy this means In other word«, B we eat rod drink eight pound* per dav, we eva< iiited five pounds of it hy the Insensible Perspii at ion. To check tins, therefore, i* to retain in the system live-eighths of all the virulent matter that nature demands should I♦*av*‘ the body. 15v a sudden transition from heat to cold, the pores are st« pped, the per-piration ceases, and disease begins at once lo develope it-elt. lienee, a stoppage of this flow of the juices, originates so many comj hunt*. 11 iseasily seen, therefore, how NECESSARY is the flow of this subtle sable humor to the sur face, to preserve h-alth. It cannot be stopped; it cannot be even chec ked, without inducing dis ease. The blood and intestines must relieve themselves of all their worn-out particles and poisonous humors, and they must go through the pores as nature de-igned. Under these circumstances, l present to phy sicians, and to all others, a preparation that has j this power to its 1111 lest extent. It is McAlister’s All-Healing Ointment or the World’s Salve. It has POWER to restore perspiration on the feet, on the head, around old sores, upon Ihe chest, in j short, upon any part of the body, whether disea sed slightly orsevcivly. It has POWER to* cause all external sores.1 scrofulous humois, skin di-eases, and poisonous j wounds to discharge their putrid matter, and then heals them. | It is a REMEDY that sweeps off the whole catalogue of cutaneous disorders, and restores ; the entire cuticle to its healthy [unctions. It is a REMEDY that forbids the necessity of so many and deleterious drugs taken into the , stomach. Scrofula.—'The Salve will extract the morbid , matter by causing the sores to discharge, and then let the Solar Tincture he used to drive it to one point, which done, a continuance of the Ointment will completely remove the disorder. : Erysipelas.—This complaint arises from im purities being driven out to the surfase by means of the Insensible Perspiration, and lodging in < the cut icule, forms sores, pimples. &c. Sail Rheum—This is another obstinate His-; ease, hut can be cured effectually as the Scrofula. Head Ache.—'The Salve has cured persons of the Head Ache of 12 years standing, and who had it regularly every week, so that vomiting often took place. Deafness and Ear Me are helped with the like succe-s, as also Ague in the Face. Cold Feet —Consumption, Liver Complaint, pains in the Cl>e$t or side, falling ol the hair, j one or the other always accompanies cold lect. | I he Salve will restore the Insensible Perspira tion and thus cure every case. If this disease is not hereditary and produced by a mul-formation of the Chest, the Salve will cure it. Sore. Eyes.—This Salve il ruunea on me tem ples will penetrate directly into the socket. The pores will be opened, a proper perspiration will j be created and the disease will soon pass off to the surface. Sire Lips and Chapped Hands. I sell a great deal of Salve to Seamen, who say it is the , ONLY tiling they can depend on to cure their raw hands, when exposed to the weather at sea. Pimples on the Face, Masculine Skin, Cross Sur face.— ils first action is to expel all humour. It i w ill not cease drawirg, till the face is free Irom < any matter that may be lodged under the skin and frequently breaking out to the surface. It then heals. When there is nothing but gro^s ness, or dull repulsive surface, it softens the skin and renders it delicate. Burns. — I suppose there is not a Family in the United States, that would consent to he with* « out this Salve a single day, if they knew its Balm m healing Burns alone. It extracts the pain and leaves the place without a scar. j < Quinsy, Sore Tin out, Influenza, B/onchitis.— There i' not an internal temedy in existence, that will cure these disorders as quick us this Salve. ... Rheumatism. —U removes almost immediately tlie inflammation amt swelling, when the pain of course ceases. Piles._The Salve acts npon t1 e riles as up on Soie Eyes. There is an inflammation which must be drawn from the parts. J he Salve dues < thi«- , l forms._If parents knew how fatal most med* i icines were to cmidren taken inw ar »iy, thev would be slow to re-urt to them. Now let me sav to parents, that this Salve will ahr rys tell it a child has worms. It will DRIVE every ves t* -e of them away. This is a simple and SAh L 1 cure. Old Sores, Mortifiation, Ulcers.—J here is no effectual way of Curing these, hut ny draw mg olf the putrid matter, do merely dry it up would only endanger one's health moie. d hat some Sores are an outlet to tne impurities ol < the system is became they cannot pass oil*through the natural channels ol the insensible Perspira- i lion. If such Sores are heaied up, tne impuri ties must have so.ue other out.el, or il will en danger tile. I his Mme wnl alvvay- provide lor such emergeneies.

I neglect ed taking any medicine, except the usual simple remedies, which persons in indigent circum stances like myself generally resort to, until the disease had reached the state above alluded to, when l became quite alarmed and applied to my family physici*n. He treated me several months, hut I received no benefit: in fact I grad ually grew worse. I hod profuse night sweats, skin dry and parched, no appetite, suffered much with thirst, occasionally spitting blood, until my physician, as well as my friends, pronounced me ^oing into a deep decline. Some of my friends recommended one medicine, some another, and would show me long certificates ol purported cures, many of which I thought suited to my case exactly, but from their effect upon me I despair ed ever recovering my health, but gave myself jp to die of that «courge ol the land, Pulmonary Consumption. Fortunately at this time, 3 friend if mirie pacing through our town, who resides in Harrisburg, called to see me, and recommended your Compound Syrup of Wild Cherry, and gave me the name of Martin Lutz, your agent in Har risburg. I reluctantly sent and got a bottle, kvhich relieved me so much that I sent and got ive more, and I am happy to say I am now a lound and healthy man. I attribute the cure en ‘ i re I v to the u>e of your celebrated preparation, he Compound Syrup of W ild Cherry, and would •arnestly recommend any person who i* suffering with any disease u! the Lungs, to re-ort at once ;o your medicine, i remain, vours, very re*pect fuliy.
