Spring.?Wc know not who is the
lUthor of the following, but it is exquiitely
In all climates spring- is beautiful,
n the South, it is intoxicating, and sets
i poet beside himself. The birds begin
o sing ; they utter a few rapturous notes,
mu men wait lor an answer 111 the stent
woods. Those green coated musiians,
the frogs make a holiday in the
leighboring marshes, They, too, beong
to t'ne ochestra of Nature, whose
rast theatre, is again opened, though tlie
loors have so long been bolted with iciles,
and scen?ry hung with snow and
rostlikc cobwebs. This is the prelude
vhich announces thc4'ising of the broad
rreen curtain. Already the grass shoots
orth. The waters leap with thrilling
iuIsc through the veins of the earth ;
he sap through the veins or the plants
.nd trees, and the blood through the
eiiisof man. What a thrill of delight
n the spring time! What a joy in bcug
and moving ! Men are at work in
gardens, and in the air there is an odor
f the fresh earth. The leaf buds be;in
to swell and blush. The white
lo?sorns of the chcrry hang upon t!ie
toughs like snow-flakes, and cue long:
ur next door neighbors will be comiletely
hidden from us by the dense
refrn foliage. The flowers open their
oft blue eyes. Children arc let loose in
lie fields and gardens. They hold butcr
cups under each other's chins to see
f they love butter. And the little girls
dorn th'emse^fc with chains and curls
f* di-.ndelioii^?pull out the yellow
eaves to see if the school-boy loves
tiem, and bl v the down from the leafess
stalk to frtrd out if their mothers
I'ant them at home. ~*And night so
loudless and so still; not a voice of
iving thing, not a whisper or waving
ough, not a breath of wind, not a sound
ipon the earth or in the air! And overbad
bends the blue sky, dewy and soft,
nd radicnt with innumerable stars, like
tie inverted bell of some blue flower.

Importance of Insects to Commerck.
?The importance pf insects to coinrierce
is scarcely ever treated of, at the
resent rate; Great Britain does not pay
?ss than a million of dollars annually
3r the dried carcasses of a tiny insect
?the Cochineal, Gum Shellac, another
nsect "product from India, is of scarcely
ess pecuniary value. A million and
half of human beings derive their sole
npport from the culture and manufacure
of silk, and the silk worm alone
routes au* annual circulating midium of
ictween one hundred and My and two
tundred millions of dollars. Half a
million of dollars is annuallv snent in
England alone for foreign honey; 10,100
hundred weight of wax is imporcd
into that country each year. .Then
here are the gall nuts of cqmmerce,
ised for dyeing, and in the manufacture
if ink, &c. The Cantharides, or Spansh
fly, is an important inscct to the melical
practitioner. Laying aside the
imposes insects perform in the schemes
if nature, they are economically not the
nsignificant and unimportant creatures
vUiich the uninformed mind-is but too
ipt to regard them.

Mastodon Cotton.
A sample of this Cotton can be seen at
the store of the Messrs Wardlaw's. Il
was received in a letter from a friend, accompanied
with some of the seed. This
kind of Cotton sold for sixteen cents in
the New Orleans market last fall, when
other Cottons of superior quality sold for
eight cents. Competent judges have pronounced
the Mastodon to be equal to the
Sea Island Cotton, both in beauty of texture
and length of fibre, and with this
greater advantage, that it will mature well
on the Uplands of the Cotton growing
States. A few seed can be obtained by
the Fanners for experiment, by an early
application to Mr. Sclleck, in said store.

T1>C value and efficacy of Spencer's Vegetable
Pills have long beer, known and up- !
predated in a great variety of diseases,and !
as the best and most important of Family |
Mcdicincs. Dr Spencer having been ae? i
tuated by a desire to benefi'. his fellow beings,
has also prepared his Vegetable Tonic
and Restorative liiUers, which he now

tensive praclicc, and thorough investigation?of
the laws which govern the human
system. i
They are purely Vegetable, and may be
taken with pcrfect sulety by all ages and
sexes in youthful, adult and declining life. ,
The design of Spencer's Vegetable Pills ^
and Vegetable Tome Restorative Bitters, ,
is to create a flow of pure healthy bile, in-* '
stead of the stale and acid kind.
The obiect of the Pills is to stimulate
all the vital organs of the system iuto retion,
and thereby cleanse the stomach and
bowels of all the morbific and offensive ;
matter with which the system is clogged,
and which promotes disease. The Bitters
are to strengthen and restore the stomach
and vital organs, to their proper tone and
vigor. When this is accomplished, good
health must be the result.
The complaints that come moEt directly
under their influence, and for which they
are so particularly designed, are as follows:
Bilious Fever, Fever and Ague, Dyspepsia,
Liver Complaints, Siclc head ache, i
Enlargement of the Spleen, Jaundice,Piles
Cliolic, Bowel and summer complaints.
Impurities o! the blood, Female Obstruct
tion, Heartburn, Incipient Diarroch, Habitual
Costjveness, Determination of blood
(o the head, Loss of Appetite, Blotched or
Sallow Complexion and in all cases of
Torpor of the bowels, where a cathartic or
apperient medicine is needed. As many
of the above enumerated diseases come on
imperceptibly, and become far advanced
in their progress before it is suspected that
they exist in the system, no one should
expect in such cases, to be at once relieved
entirely, but. should continue the us?6f
the Medicine for a consiriornhln lonntu nt
- - *W"!5V" w"
time. Full directions accompany the medicincs
for their use,in all those complaints
fofr which they are recommcndcd. \
Price 25 cents per box for the Pills, and
?1 per bottle for the. Bitters.

Dear Sir: I have made great use of
