The following jusi reflections occur in an
address recently delivered by Hiram Ke’churn
esq., on the occasion ol ihe death ol Cm el Jus

Sir, there are now living in Kurope. two verj
distinguished men, barons, both vers emineu
in their line, both known to the whole civilize*
world; one is Haro * Roth>clnld, and t!;e <■ nei
is Baron Humboldt; one distinguished tor «• e

wuh a large deal table uncovered in the :md>t
of that worn,containing hi* bonks end writing
apparatus. Adjoining this was a small bed
room, in which he slept. Here thmeminent
philosopher received a visitor from the l-mteu
States. He conversed with hit*.: lie spi ke ol
his works. “My works," said he, “you will
find in the adjoining tibarv but I am ‘oo pool
to own a copy of them l have not the means
to buy a full copy of my own woiks."
Now, sir, which of these barons do yon
think, even in ibis age o? sold. receives tht
greatest amount of the homage of tne human
r ce? I speak not of the homage of intelligen
men, hut of the honor paid by the masses.
Let them both ccme here and pass through oui

A certain little boy of fh.s city who recently
lost bis father, tound h mseil debarred tnc-re^y,
from attending school a* former.y, and, in itie
fullness ot his laiih, he determined to seek t tie

doubtless been taught to look tor other aiul

In the simplicity of his heart he sat down and
gravely wrote a letter to his Redeemer, think*

ring his requests would meet with greater a -

Health hfsiorkd and life
_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 heretofore entailed, I hat some
thing has been found. !t is a vegetable produc
tion. brought from the sterile deserts of Arabia
the Stony, by the celebrated Professor M. Morse
well known as a distinguished member ot the
leading scientific societies ol the Old World,
and equally distinguished as a physician, a coem
ist and a traveller. I he juices ol this herb
concentrated and combined with other vegetable
medicmaI extracts, are now producing result,
hitherto unheard of, in this or any other country.
At first the properties attributed 10
COR01 ^ L were deemed fabulous. J he public,
often deceived, could not believe the simple and
sublime truths announced by the discoverer.—
But (acts, undeniable facts, attested by witness
es of the highest class and character, are now
triumphing over ail doubts.
bv a ina^s of testimony which is ptrlectly irre
I he Elixir remedies, in all ea^es, the deplora
ble evn- arising from a misuse or abu^e ol the
vat ious organs w hich make up the wonderful
machine called .' an. It re-tores to lull >igoi
every delicate function connected with that
mysterious compound agency ot matter and
mind, necessary to the rc-productron ol human
I lie. To persons ol feeble muscular frame, or
deficient in vital power, it is recommended as
the only means of communicating that energy
which is neees-ary to the proper enjoyment <d
all the natural appetites, as well a* of the higher
mental attributes. Its beneficial effect- are not
confined to either sex or to any ag*\ i he feeble
girl, the ailing wife, the listless, enervated youth,
the overworn inan of business, the victim ot
nervous depression, the individual sutiermg Iroin
general debility or from the weakness ol a sin
gle organ, will all find immediate and permanent
relief "from the of this incomparable renova*
' ter. To thine who have a predisposition to par
alysis, it wiil prove a complete and unfailing
.-aleguard against that terrible malady. I here
are many, perhaps, who have so trilled with
their constitution-, that they think themselves
beyond the reach of medicine Let not even
these despair, 'i he Elixit deals with disease as
it exists, without reference to causes, and will
not only remove the disorder it-elf, hut
Brought from a vast distance, the principal in
gredient of the Elixir can only be procured at a
heavy expense, and the process of manufacture
is also costly . Hence, the price, to be at all re

that of the trashy, chance-compound nostrum,
ol which ^ht only expense con-isi* m the auver
tising But, if health ’ is indeed a ‘priceless
blessing,1’ then is the Invigorating El.sir and Cor
dial the cheapest medicine in the known world.
The derangements ot the sy-tem, leading to
nervous diseases, and the forms ol neivous dis
ease itself, are so numerous that it would re
quire a column to enumerate the maladies for
which this pieparation is a specific. A lew,
however, may be enumerated, viz: neuralgia, tic
doloieaux. hcadatne, incipient paralysis, hys
teria, dvspep-ia, palpitation ol the heart, spinal
a flections, muscular debility, tremors, flatulence,
a pricking sensation in the flesh, numbne**, tor
piditv ol the liver, mental depression, weakness
of Uie will, indisposition to move, faintness alter
exercise, broken sleep and terrifying dreams, in
ability U> remain in one place or position, weak
ness ol the procreative organs, sexual incom
petency, melancholy, monomania, tluor albus,
sinking at the stomach, female irregularities, a
chronic tendency to miscamage, emaciation, and
alt complaints growing out ot' a liee indulgence
of the passions, and all barrenness, that does not
proceed from organic causes beyond the teach
ot medicine.
Whenever the organs to be acted upon are
tree from malformation or stnctuial diseases, it
is averied 1 hat
will leplace weakness with stiength, incapacity
with efficiency, irregularity w'ith uniform and
natural activity, and this not only without hazard
of reaction but with a happy effect on the gen
eral organization. IHJ13 Bear in mind dial ail
maladies, wherever they begin, finish with the
nervous system, and that the paralyzution of the
netves of motion and sensation is physical
death. Bear in mind, also, that for^ every
kind of nervous disease, tl*e Elixir and CorJial
is the only reliabie preparation known
'J he unparalleled eflccls of this great restora
tive in all complaints incident to lemales, mark
a new era in trie annals of medicine. I hou-ands
of stimulants have been invented —thousands ol
invigoranisconcocted—all purporting lo be spe
cifics in the various diseases and derangements,
lo which trie delicate conformation ol woman
render her liable. I he result teas berctolore been
uniform. J hese nostiums have indeed imparted
a momentary vivacity to the nervous system, a
transient and delusive vigor to the muscles; but
this flash of relief has been succeeded by a de
pression ami prostration greater than belore,
and the end has too olien been utterly to paralyze
the recuperative power of tfie nerves aud the
vital organization, and finally to destioy the un
happy patient. But in
is presented as a phenomenon in the materia me
dica hitherto unheard of—a stimulant without a
reaction. . .
I he herb which forms its main ingredient,
has been admitted by all the great medical and
phai maceutical institutions ol Europe, 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
rating effects it produced upon the natives. In
fact, the wondeilul power ol endurance, ttic ex
haustiess vigor exhitntcd by the Arabs of both
sexes, in their desert pilgrimages, is attubutable
to the use ot this vitalizing herb.
An appeal is made to
who sutlers Iron) weakness, derangement, ner
vousness, tremois, 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.

He already looks like a new person, who

I thought it scarcely possible tor him ever

) HiOMMI A TE OK LIME.—The F^gle
Chemical Company, ol New York, having re
cently made extensive additions to their works
on Staten Island, are now prepared to meet the
increased demand for the above named invalua
ble marines, arid aie leady to supply the ag
iiculturist* with any quantity that may be re
'I'lie Hone T)u*t Manure will be of the same
(jfialiiv as heretofore furnished to the latiner
ol Staten 1-land, New Jer-cy and other part* ot
the I niied Stales. It will be ground into a tine
powder, and warranted pure : and, bring per
fectly dr> ami well packed in ch-jti barrels, can
be Iran*, orted at a soiali co-t cither by steam
boat or railroad.
The advantages of ground bones for manure
are too well known by the experience of the
past twenty ye3rs* to nuke any further recom
mendations necessary.
The Super Pho*phate of Lime, or Sulpha*
ted Hone*, is a comparatively recent n-oJe of
applying the same ingredient*; but from the
great results obtained by the agriculturists in
England and the United States, it is likely to en
ter largely into con«umpti»n.
The proprietors of the FLgle Cnemical Works
have for several years pa*t been txien*ively
engaged iri the inanuiaclute of thi* article in
Fingiand, and the re*uIts in that country have
proved beyond all doubt P* superiority over all
olr.ei manure* in u-e.

nlule ol Lime, combined withmch proportions
of ammonia and other ingredients as are neces
sary to restore that which h.«s been taken from
the soil by previou- crops.
Raw hones, in addition to fat or gelatine, are
composed of Phosphoric Acid and Lime com
bined, called Phosphate of Lime. It is the
Phosphoric Acid that is of great value as ma
nure to the agricu lurist, and the object of ap
plying sulphuric acid to dissolve them is, that by
its alliance with the Lime which is in the bones,
the Pho-phoric Acid is rendered more soluble or
easily di-solved »y ram ; and the ditfeience be
tween raw ground bones and dissolved bones
iinv, in a plain wav, be i-lalt-d to con**i-l in the
fact, that by a carelul addition o» the proper
proportion-* ot Mjlphunc acid, the Phosphate ot
Lime in the raw hime-, is converted partly into
Suipiiate ol Lima, which is a va riable manure,
and a considerable portion ol soluble phosphoric
acid i> left Iree to combine at once with the soil
in readiness to act on the plant.
Thus it is that a small quantity of Super
Phosphate of Lime will lorce > crop of turnips
in greater weight than n large quantity «_f raw
ground bones, bringing them ready to the hoe at
lea*t ten days sooner.
This is one of the most important properties
of this Phosphate derived fiom its peculiar pre
paration, and it will always be found, where
u«-ed, to cause *uch a speedy development ol ttie
plant a- to enable it to e-capc tne ravages ol the
