Indeed, there is a class in the com munity who feel particularly happy and esteem it a privilege to be thus questioned, as it gives the® a good opportunity to communicate their feelings and views on various topics, or relate soete marvellous stones which they have be come possessed of. It the person asking the news really wishes to learn it, and the person addressed has the time, inclination and intorma tion to impart the desired intelligence, we neem it entirety a private affair, with which we have nothing to do. But the matter does not stop here, for it is now becoming quite a prevalent custom to stop a newspaper man in the street, even when they are must busily engaged in earning his bread, and requesting him to tell the news.

Robs me of that which not enriches him, And makes me poor indeed. Most persons become possessed of street news at no cost, except the time and trouble of listening to its narration, and therefore they can afford to impart it to others at the >amerate; the civility of giving it> ‘thank you.sir,* pinch of snuff, a cigar or an invitation to drink, af fording a ‘sufficient margin of profit' (as the merchants say) to repay them tor their pains.

Health restored and life LENGTHENED, BY L)R. MORSE’S INVIGORATING ELIXIR AND CORDIAL. ' —For centuries, Medical Science has been ran sacking the vegetable and mineral kingdoms, in search of something that should restore the lost or decaying energies of the nervous and muscu lar systems, without the drawback of subsequent prostration, which all stimulants, tonics, and ! narcotics had heretotore entailed. That some thing has been found. It is a vegetable produc tion, brought from the sterile deserts of Arabia the Stony, by the celebrated ProfessorM. Morse • well known as a distinauished member of the leading scientific societies of the Old World, j and equally distinguished as a physician, a ch»*m ist and a traveller. The juices of this herb concentrated and combined with other vegetable medicinal extracts, are now producing result, hitherto unheard of, in this or any other country. , At first the properties attributed to Professor MORSE’S INVIGORATING ELIXIR AND CORDIAL were deemed fabulous. 1 he public, often deceived, could not believe the simple and j sublime truths announced by the discoverer.— But facts, undeniable facts, attested by witness ' es of the highest class and character, are now ; triumphing over all doubts. INCREDULITY IS OVERTHROWN, by a mass of testimony which is perfectly irre sistible. The Elixir remedies, in all cases, the deplora ble evils arising from a misuse or abuse of the various organs which make up the wonderful machine called Man. it restores to full vigor every delicate function connected W'ith that mysterious compound agency of matter and mind, necessary to the re-production of human jile. To persons of feeble muscular frame, or deficient in vital power, it is recommended as the only means of communicating that energy which is necessary to the proper enjoyment of ail the natural appetites, as well os ot the higher mental attributes. Its beneficial effects are not . . .i___ ... 'n,0 COlMlMCU IU nuici 3CS UI ’V auj . * t.v girl, ihe ailing wife, the listless, enervated youth, i the overworn man of business, the victim of nervous depression, the individual suffering from general debility or from the weakness of a sin gle organ, will all find immediate and permanent ! relief from the use of this incomparable renova tor. To ihose who have a predisposition to par j ulysis, it will prove a complete and unfailing ' safeguard against that terrible malady. There | are many, perhaps, who have so trifled with their constitutions, that they think themselves beyond the reach of medicine Let not even these despair. '! he Elixir deals with dLease as it exists, without reference to causes, and will not onlv remove the disorder itself, hut REBUILD THE BROKEN CONSTITUTION. Brought ft urn a vast distance, the principal in gredient of the Elixir can only be procured at a heavy expense, and the process oi manulacture | is also costly . Hence, ihe price, to be at all re munerative, must necessarily be higher than that of the trashy, chance-compound nostrum, of which the only expense consisis in the auver- ! rising. But, if health is indeed a “priceless blessing,” then is the Invigorating Elixir and Cor dial the cheapest medicine in the known world. The derangements of the system, leading to nervous diseases, and the lorms ot nervous dis ease itself, are so numerous, that it would re quire a column to enumerate the maladies for i which this preparation is a specific A lew, however, may be enumerated, viz: neuralgia, tie doloreaux, headache, incipient paralysis, hys teria, dyspepsia, palpitation ol the heart, spinal atieclions, muscular debility, tremors, flatulence, a pricking sensation in the fiosh, numbness, tor pidity of the liver, mental depression, weakness of the will, indisposition to move, faintness alter exercise, broken sleep and terrifying dreams, in ability to remain in one place or position, weak ness of the procreative organs, sexual inconi petency, melancholy, monomania, fluor albus, sinking at the stomach, female irregularities, a chronic tendency to miscarriage, emaciation, and all complaints growing out of a free indulgence of the passions, and all barrenness, that does not proceed from organic causes beyond the reach of medicine. Whenever the organs to be acted upon arc, free from malformation or slrictural diseases, it is averred that MORSE’S INVIGORATING ELIXIR will leplace weakness with strength, incapacity with pfliripnrv. irI'PUUlantV with linilonn aild natural activity, and this not only without hazard of reaction, but with a happy elfect on the gen eral organization, Bear in mind that ail maladies, w herever tliey begin, finish with the nervous system, anu that the paralyzalion ol the j neives of motion and sensation is physical death. Bear in mind, also, that for every kind of nervous disease, the Elixir and Cordial , is the only reliable preparation known. A GREAT MEDICINE FOR FEMALES. ! 'i he unparalleled eilccts of this great restora- • tive in all complaints incident to females, mark a new era in the annals ol medicine, i housands of stimulants have been invented — thousands ol invigoranlsconcocted—all purporting to be spe cifics in the various diseases and derangements, to which the delicate conformation of woman render her liable, 'i he result has heretofore been uniform, '1 hese nostiums have indeed imparled a momentary vivacity to the nervous system, a transient and delusive vigor to the muscles; but this Hash of relief has been succeeded by a de pression and prostration greater than before, and the end has looollen been utterly to paralyze the recuperative power ol the nerves ami the vital organization, and finally to destroy the un hanp> patient. Butin ........ MORSE’S INVIGORATING ELIXIR, is presented as a phenomenon in the materia roe dica hitherto unheard of—a stimulant without a reaction. 'J he herb which forms its main ingredient, has been admitted by all the great medical and , pharmaceutical institutions ol Kurope, to be in this respect sui generis Dr. Morse whose name is an undisputed authority in science, dis covered the production in Arabia, where his at- • tention was excited by the wonderfully invigo- i rating efiects it produced upon the natives. In fact, the wondei lul power ol endurance, the ex haustless vigor exhibited by the Arabs of both sexes, in their deseit pilgrimages, is attributable to the use of this vitalizing herb. An appeal is made to EVERY WOMAN OF SENSE, who sutlers from weakness, derangement, ner vousness, tremors, pains in the back, or any other disorder, whether peculiar to her sex, or com mon to both sexes—to give the Invigorating Cor dial a trial.

Dear Fir:—It gives me pleasure to inform | you, that one ol my patients, while in Boston, itmciired some of your Cordial, which he tells me lie has taken two weeks, which time he has uot had been troubled a3 he was beiote lie already looks like a new person, who so short a time since looked so pale and thin, and was scaicely able to crawl around. I thought it scarcely possible for him ever to regain his full stiength and (acuities; his case was an extremely bad one. 1 prescribed the usual medicines used in such cases in the Hospital, but they were of no cflect. In the mean time, tny patient had piocured some of your Cordial, which eticcted a cure, 1 am satis* ; lied no other medicine could have done.
