SAVK YOUR FRUIT—Burnett’s Patent
infallible Sf.lf Sealing Cans for PRE
SERVING FRESH F3UIT AND \ F.GFTARLFR.— It has
long been a desideratum to preserve Iruit by
some cheap method, such as would keep them
fit lor use through the year. At the present high
prices of Sugar, all will see that this is the Can
lor the times. The fruit or vegetables are kept
with their natural flavor, and are admitted by
all whfl have tried them to be superior to the
old plan. This Can is simple in its construction,
and requires neither the aid ol Solder, C ement or
Wax Having procured the right ot manufac

rpo THOSE WHO CLOTHE SE RV NTS
I WELL—Made in Western Virginia—
Where wool is cheap and good, and the manu
facturer does not hesitate to put it into liis la
j brics plentifully.
We have given an order, and will have in
store by the 5th of September next,
1,500 yards drab Fulled Cloth
1.500 “ grey do. do., all double
width of superior quality. #1 per yard
2.500 yards of those extra wide, bright and
thick Plaid Linseys, lor servant women
2,000 yards of that extra superior, wide
twilled, white Merino W'ool Flannel—
certainly the best article ever produced
for Undershirts, Drawers, and Skirts.
The proprietor of the factory where these
| goods are made, strives to get up the btst goods
of the class that are produced in the United
States. In the opinion of the very best judges,
he has accomplished the object.
Our Virginia and Maryland friends, at whose
urgent solicitation we order these goods made,
will please send in their orders early to insure
a supply, and not be placed in the situation they
found themselves last autumn and winter, re
gretting they had not enough, "and could not
find any that would match them
We doubt not a casual inspection of the goods
I named above would satisfy anv “calculating
j person” that it “would pay” to sell their wool
and not trade, but buy better goods than they
get at much LOWER PRICES.
It may be mentioned at this timp, that we
propose to add to the above probably the larg
est and best stock of SERVANTS’ BLANKETS, j
and all other goods in that line generally, that
will be found in the District.
Always a fine slock of all kinds ol DR\
GOODS, for Farmers’, Planters' and House
keepers’ use in all departments,
i New supplies daily, throughout the en
; tire vear.
j IaT1 Our facilities and our Northern and East
[ ern correspondents, enable us to offer aU arti
cles at prices most favorable to the consumer.
ONE PRICE ONLY—no deviation.
Our most careful attention devoted to orders, i
which are solicited.
Good articles, low prices and fair dealing,
may be relied on in all cases.

^ hoD; in future distant yean,
1 bou sba.lt look upon this page
Through the crystal vale ot tears
That dim our eyes in after age.
Think it was a mother’s band,
Though her smile do more tbou’lt see.
Pointing toward that "better land/*
Gave this sacred gift to thee!
Lightly thou esteem’st it now,
For thy heart is young and wild,
And upon thy girlhood’s brow,
Nought but sunny Hope bath smiled!
But when disappointments come,
And the world begins to steal
All thy spirit’s early bloom,
Theo its value thou will feel!
To thy chamber still and lone,
Fly—and search this sacred page;
When earth’s blandishments are gone—
Every grief it will assuage!
Close thy door against the din
Of worldly folly—worldly fear—
Only let the radience in
Of each heavenly promise here!
When thy bruised spirit bends
’Neath the weight of sorrow’s chain,
When of ail life's summer friends
Not one llatterer shall remain;
Lay this unction to the wound
Of thy smitten, blecdmg breast—
Here the only balm is found
That can yield the weary restl
Nor alone in hours of woe,
"Search the Scriptures,” bat while joy
Doth life’s blissfull cup o’erflow,
Be it oft thy sweet employ;
So, remembering in thy youth
Him whose spirit lights each page,
Thou shall have abundant proof
lie will not forget thine agcl
HOW TO BE^MISERABLE.
Sit at the window and look over the way
to your neighbor's excellent mansion, which
bo has recently built and paid for, and sigh
out, "0, that 1 was a rich man!” Get angry
with your neighbor, and think yon have not
a friend in the world. Shed a tear or two,
take a walk in the burial ground, continu
ally saying to yourself, "when shall 1 be hur
ried here?” Sign a note for your friend, and
never forget your kindness; and every hour in
the day whisper to yourself, "1 wonder if ho
will pay that note.” Think everybody means
to cheat you. Closely examine every bill
you take, and doubt its being genuine, till
you have put the owner to a great deal of
tpnuliU Rnlincn nvprv ftliilliflir n&il#d to
you i» but a sixpence crossed, and expree*
your doubts about your getting rid of it, if
you shuiild take it. Put confidence in nobody
and believe every man you trade with to be
a rogue. Never accommodate, if you can
possibly help it. Never visit the sick or
afflicted, and never give a farthing to the
poor. Buy as cheap as you can, and screw
down to the lowest mill. Grind the ftcee
and the hearts of the unfortunate. Brood
over your misfortune—your lack of talents,
and believe at no distant day you will come
to want. Let the workhouse he ever in your
mind, with all the horrors of distress and
poverty. Then you will be miserable to
your hearts content, (If we may so speak,)
sick at heart and at variance with all the
world. Nothing will cheer or encourage you;
nothing will throw a gleam of sunshine or a
ray of warmth into your heart. All will
be as dark and as cheerless as the grave.
