STATION. An accident happened a few weeks ago at one ot the stations ot the Great Western rail way in England of a serious character. At Reading there were two station buildings the up and the iLtcu, each provided with the re quisite waiting rooms, refreshment rooms, and wo king offices, and each with a platform along the line ot rails. Each of the<e plat forms was covered wrb a roof two hundred feet long and nearly sixty leet wide, built of wood and zinc, attached on one side to the line of buuduigs containing the apartments above mentioned, an 1 *upporicd on the other side by a tier ot iron columns. On the occasion above referred to, on the evening of Octooer 13th, the Bassing-toke goods train, due at this station at to o’clock a,rived m due nme entering by the Hack next adjoining the line of iron pillars which suppor ted one-half the roof over the platform. It so happened that a aide flap ot one of the truck* wan hanging down on the side on which the pillars were projecting just far enough to -trike tnem pluinply, and as the tram was running on witn considerable velocity and a powerful mo mention, it struck each pillar in succession and drove it out of place, and at the moment it hi ruck the last pillar the whole r >vt fell in Horn the centre with a tremendous crash, covering with its rums the platform, the track, and ail me empty carriages winch happened to be •landing there, together with a part of 'fie tiuck ot the intruding tram, fortunately the driver, fireman a« d conductor ot the train escaped in jure. It was deemed a providential circumstance that ths accident did not happen a tew minutes later, as at 10 o'clock and 12 minutes the mail train wa* due at this station and on its arrival ?t would have stopped near the centre ot the shed to enable the passengers to alight for refreshments while the mail bags were ex change*!. Had the root laden at that period it might have occasioned a disastrous !o*s ot life. The signal man had jus? lime to stop the mail tram before i»8 arrival, and it was con veyed down the line by another track through the yard, and brought back to the platform, nruiiaraturi m it* ■itiifhm* oh its route anew. The damage ansi z from the accident wa< esti mated at nearlv Xf.000. _ Ct>* One of the most experienced Physicians of Baltimore, says of STABLEB’S ANODYNE CHERRY EXPECTORANT for the cure of Cough*.

INVIGORATING ELIXIR AN D CORDIAL. _ITor centuries, Medical Science bos been ran sacking the vegetable and mineral kingdoms, in search of something that should restore the lost or decay iug energies of the nervous and muscu lar systems, without the drawback of subsequent prostration, which all stimulants, tonics, and narcotics had heretofore entailed. T hat some thing has been found. It is a vegetable ptoduc tion, brought from the sterile deserts of Arabia the Stony, by the celt brated Professor M. Morse weli known as a distinguished member of the i leading scientific societies of the Old VVoild, and equally distinguished as a physician,a chem ist and a tiaveller. The juires ot this herb concentrated and combined with other vegelao e medicinal extracts, are now producing icsu t, hit he* to unheard of, in this or any other country. At hist the properties atti ibuted to J ro essor MuRSK’S INVIGUUA'I LNG ELI MR AM) COROl A L were deemed fabulous. I he public oiler, deceived, could not believe the simple and sublime truths announced by the discoveier. But facts, undeniable facts, attested by w.iness ! e* of the highest class and character, are now triumphing over all doubts. INLRf DLLITY IS OVERTHROWN, by a ma>s of testimony whit h is perlectly irre- ( s stible. The Elixir remedies, mall cases, the deplora ble evils arising from a misuse or abuse ot the various organs which make up the wonderful machine called an- It restores to full vigor every delicate function connected with that mysterious compound agency ot matter and mind, necessary to the rc-prodnction of human i tile. To per-ons of leehle muscular Iranie, or deficient in vital power, it is recommended as the only means of communicating that energy which is necessary to the proper enjoyment of all the natural appetites, as well as of the higher mental attributes. Its beneficial efleets are not confined to either sex or to any age. i he feeble girl, the ailing wife, the listless*, enervated youth, the overworn roan ol business, the victim of nervous depression, the individual sullenng from general deoility or from the weakness ot a sin gle organ, will all find immediate and permanent lelicl from the use ot this incomparable renova ler. 'I'o those who have a predisposition to par alysis, it will prove a complete and unfailing sateguard against that terrible malady. There are many, perhaps, who have >o trilled with their constitutions, that they think themselves beyond the reach of medicine Let not even these despair. 'I he Elixir deals wnh disease as I it exists, without reference to causes, and will not only remove the disorder it-elf, but REBUILD THE BROKEN C0NST1T U TI ON. 1 Brought liom a vast distance, the principal in gredient of the Elixir can only be procured at a i neavv expense, and the process of manufacture ■ t T « L .. t k a f.

I 1 t'llLC , UIC piivv, IVI'VK.-M.v muneraiive, must necessarily be higher lhan : ihal of the trashy, chance-compound nostrum, 1 of which the only expense consists in the auver lisii.g But, it health is indeed a ‘ priceless ! blessing,” then is the inv igoratiug Elixir and (.or dial the cheapest medicine in the known world. The derangements ol the system, leading to ; nervous diseases, and the forms of neivous di? i ease itsell. are so numerous, that it would re (jutre a column to enumerate the maladies for which this preparation is a specific. A few, however, may be enumerated, viz: neuralgia, tic doloreoux. headache, incipient paralysis, hys teria, dyspepsia, palpitation of the heart, spinal afltclions, muscular debility, tremor*, flatulence, ‘ a pricking sensation in the fiesh, numbness, tor i pidily of the liver, mental depression, weakness of the will, inds-positiou to move, faintness alter l exercise, broken sleep and tei nty mg dreams, in* 1 ab11i v to remain in one place or position, weak ness of the procreative organs, sexual inconi petenev, melancholy, monomania, fluor o I bus, sinking at the stomach, female irregularities, a chronic tendency to mtscari iage, emaciation, and all complaints growing out ol a lice indulgence of the passions, and all barrenness, thutdoe^ not proceed from organic causes beyond the reach of medieme. W henever the organs to be acted upon are free from malformation or slrictural diseases, it isaverred that MORSE’S INVIGORATING ELIXIR ' will replace weakness with siiength, incapacity with efficiency, irregularity with uniform and i natural activity, and this not only without hazard of reaction, but with a happy effect on the gen eral organization. B^a,‘1,1 mind th.at all maladies, wherever thev begin, finish with the nervous system,and that the paralyzalion of the netves of motion and sensation is physical ; death. Bear in mind, also, that lor every kmd of net vou* disease, trie Elixii and Cordial is the only reliable preparation known A GREAT MEDICINE FOR FEMALES. J he unparalleled effects of thi* gteat restora tive in all complaints incident to females, mark a new era m the annals of medicine, i housanri* of stimulants have been invented—thousands of mvigorantsconcocted—all purporting to be spe cifics in the varii is diseases and derangements, to which the delicate conformation of woman I render her liable. I he result has heretofore been uniform, 1 hese nostiums have indeed imparted a momentary vivacit) to the nervous system, a i transient and delusive vigor to the muscles; but this flash of relief has been succeeded by a de pression and pios’ration greater than belore, and the end has loo often been utterly to paralyze ihe recuperative power of the nerves and the vital organization, and finally todestioy the un happy patient. But in ...... MOUSE’S INVIGORATING ELIXIR, is presented as a phenomenon in the materia roe dica hitherto unheard of—a stimulant without a reaction. . I he herb which forms its main ingredient, i has been admitted by all the great medical and ! pharmaceutical institutions ol Europe, to be in this respect sui generis Dr. Mor^e whose name i* an undisputed authority in science, dis covered the production in Arabia, where hi" at tention was excited by the woiMterlully invigo rating effects it produced upon the natives. In fact, the wonderlul power ot endurance, the ex haustless vigor exhibited by the Arabs ol both i sexes, in their deseil pilgrimages, is attributable i to the use ol this vitalizing herb. An appeal is nude to KVKUY WOMAN OF >KNSK, • who sutlers trom weakness, derangement, ner vousness, tiemois, pains in the back, or any other disorder, whether peculiar to her sex, or com , mon to both >e\es—to give the Invigorating Cor dial a trial. • LET FACTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.
