THE GAZETTE.
TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 30, 1854.
NEWSPAPEKS.
The Rev. Mr. Bacon, in a sermon on Sun
day evening, at the Church of the Messiah,
Philadelphia, pronounced the newspaper as
second only to the Bible in a representative
government, as a moral force. M ith its twen
ty-five millions of papers issued annually, it
penetrates every house and reaches every rea
der. If the preacher, with his hundreds ot
bearers, has a commanding influence for
good upon his congregation, moulding their
moralaandenlightening their understandings,
how much greater must be the influence and
responsibility of the press, which talks daily
to its fifty or an hundred thousand readers?
It is a good sign tosee the preacher recogniz
ing the importance of the secular press, and
taking liberal views of its usefulness, and the
purposes whioh it subserves in promoting the
great wofk of civilisation, and of human
rights and happiness. The following re
marks from the sermon are appropriate and
.. * . _u
me newspaper, quite as uiuui u© um pub
lic schools, is in America the great creator of
a nation of thinkers and debaters. The
American editor aims not at the choice diction
of an essayist, and pay* little attention to
mere abstractions aud vain theories. He
writes as if he would give the greatest quanti
ty of thought in the briefest space. He ex
cels in paragraphs, which are like the sharp
shooting of riflemen; his heavy artillery he re
serves for occasional editorials, but he seldom
plies the canuon when* a bullet will do the
work. But as a characteristic of our |*mple,
he is ever ready tolar aside his editorial mat
ter to make room for news. He knows men,
and not deeds. His language possesses a
clear and concise utterance. Every writer
and public speaker might fiud a model ot
style in the productions of the American
editors.
The pulpit must first labor to effect an im
provement in the character of the religious
press. The religious newspapers were far
behind the secular press, in breadth ot views
and comprehensiveness and liberality ot ac
tion, and, he might venture to say, in reli
gion itself. They take most oi their news
rrom the daily press, and even their reports
of religious meetiugs—while it is not unfre
2uent for them to turn around ami charge
ie reporters with irreligion. The religious
press is too often narrow-minded—it does
not seem to understand its true policy and
duties; and the violence and animosity that
pervade its columns are even worse than that
of political editors on the eve of an election.
ROYAL FAMILY OF GREAT BRITAIN.
Her Britannic Majesty, Aloxandriua ^ ic
toria I, Queen of Great Britain and Ireland,
whose birthday was celebrated on Wednes
day last, the 24th May, was born in 1819,
so that she is just thirty-five years old. Per
haps—nay, we are quite sure—there is no
sovereign in Europe that has a firmer hold
upon the affections of her people, than she,
ns certainly there are none more deserving
it, whether she be regarded as a woman or a
Queen. Queen Victoria was married at the
age of twenty-one, on the 10th of February,
1840, and the issue has been:
Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa, boro Nov.
21st, 1840.
Albert Edward, born Nov. 9th, 1841.
Alice Maud Mary, born April 25, 1843.^
Alfred Ernst Albert, born Aug. 0th, 1854.
Helen Augusta Victoria, born May 25,
1246.

1848.

COOL AS A CUCUMBER.
A few nights since a journeyman printer,
notorious among the craft in New Orleans for
always being out of “sorts,” was returning
home from his work about that “witching
time of ni^ht” when printers generally get
through with their arduous duties, and retire
to rest and refresh their wearied bodies. Our
typo friend had progressed to Circus street on j
his homeward way, when suddenly a couple
of scoundrels sprang from their place of con- |
cealment, seized him by each arm, and com- j
meneed to rifle his pockets. The disciple of j
of Faustus made no noise or resistance, but j
stood perfectly quiet until they had ransack- j
ed every pocket or place about his clothes iu j
which fnere was the slightest probability of ,
any thing valuable being concealed, but with- J
out more success than finding a brass “rule, * |
a cigar, and a half a plug of tobacco. “AV ell/
said C, are you satisfied now, you fools, you?”
44 t'nclo Ned hnd no hair on tho top of his h*-a(l.
Tn th« plac* wh**ro the hair ought to grow.
py But he lived previous to the discovery oi i
LYON'S Celebrated KATHAIRON, which not j
only preserves and beautifies, but restores the
hair at any period of life. Only those who will
not try it, are troubled with Baldness. Dandruff, j
or harsh, unpleasant hair.
From the New York Home Journal.
“No article ever acquired so rapid celebrity
and universal appreciation,as LYON’S KATH
AIRON. To those who have used it (and who i
has not) the reason is obvious, as its invigora
ting and beautifying effects, and agreeable Per
fume, stamp it an indispensable article of the
toilet”

Health restored and life
LENGTHENED, BY DR. MORSE.>
IN\ IGORATiNG EIJXiR AND CORDIAL —
For centuries, Med;cal Science has been ran
sacking the \egetable and mineral kingdoms, in
search of something that should restore the lost
or decaying energies of the nervous ami muscular
systems, without the drawback of subsequent
prostration, which all stimulants, tonics, and
narcotic* had heretofore entailed. That some,
thing has been found. It is a \egetabie produc
tion, brought from the sterile deserts of Arabia
the Stony, by the celebrated Professor M. Morse,
well knowrn as a distinguished member of the
leading scientific societies of the Old World, and
equally distinguished as a physician, a chemist,
and a tra\el!er. The juices of this heib. concen
trated ami combined with other \egetable medi
cinal extracts, are now* producing result*, hith
erto unheard o£ hi this or any other country.
At first the properties attributed to Professor
MORSES INVIGORATING ELIXIR AND
CORDIAL were deemed fabulous. The public,
often deceived, could not belieie the simple and
ciihlime truth* announced l)V the disCi.i pr»-r
But facts, undeniable tacts, attested by witnesses
ot the highest class and character are now trium
phing over all doubts.
ixcKKnruTY is overthrown,
by a mass ot testimony which is perfectly irre
sistible.
The Elixir remedies, in all ca*es, the deplora
ble evils arising from a misuse or abuse ot the
various organs which make up the wonderful
machine called man. It restores to full vigor
every delicate function connected with that mys
terious compound agency of matter and mind,
necessary to the reproduction ot human life.
To persons of feeble muscular frame, or deficient
in vital |>ower, it is recommended as the only
means of communicating that energy which is
necessary to the proper enjoyment of ail the natu
ral appetites, as well as of the higher mental
Attributes. Its beneficial effects are not confined
to either sex or to any age. The feeble girl, the
ailing wife, the listless, enervated youth, the
overworn man of business, the victim of ner
vous depression, the individual suffering from
general debility or from the weakness of a single
organ, will all find immediate ami |>ernianent
relief from the use of this incomparable renova
rer. To those who have*a predisposition to par
alysis. 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 t*
yond the reach ot medicine. Let not even these
despair. T he Elixir deals with disease as it ex
ists, without reference to causes, and will not
only remove the disorder itself, but
RE BIT LI) THE BROKEN CONSTFTCTION
Brought from a vast distance, the principal in
gredient of the Elixir can only be produced at a
Heavy expense, and the process of manufacture
is also costly. Hence, the price, to lie at all re.
rnunerative. must necessarily lie higher than that
»l thc trashy, chance-compound nostrum*, of w hich
th»* only expense consists in the advertising.
But, it health is indeed a ‘‘priceless hle»*itig.
[hen is the Invigorating Elixir and Cordial the
cheapest medicine in the known world.
The derangements of the system, leading to
nervous diseases, and the forms of nervous disease
tself, are so numerous, that it would requiie a
’olumu to enumerate the maladies for which
his preparation is a specific. A few, however,
nay be enumerated, v iz: neuralgia, lie doloreaux.
leadache, incipient paralysis hysteria, dyspep*
ia, palpitation of the heart, spinal affections
nusculardebility, tremors, flatulence, a pricking
ensation in the fleTi, numbness, torpidity of the
ivrr, mental depression, weakness ol the will,
ndisposition to move, faintness alter exercise.

stomach, female irregularities, a chronic tendency

'rowing out ot a tree indulgence of the pas>ioii>.
nid all barrenness, that does not proceed trom
organic causes beyond the reach of medicine.
Whenever the organs to 1st acted upon are iree
rom inallormation or strictural diseases, it is
iv erred that Morse’s Invigorating Elixir will re
dace weakness with strength, incapacity with
dficiency. irregularity with uniform and natural
ictivity, and this not only without hazard ot ie
iction, hut with a happv effect on the general or
'anization. LilT Bear ill mind that all maladies,
.vherever they begin, finish with the nervous '\»>
em, and that the paralyzation of the nerves «n
notion and sensation is physical death.—
Bear in mind, also, that for every kind of
lervous disease, rlie Elixir and Cordial is the only
eliahle preparation known. A GREAT MED
