The Sculptor Boy-
Chisel in haml stood a sculptor hoy.
With his marble block beforcJdm,
And his face lit up, with a smile of joy.
As an angel-dream passed o'er him ;
He carved it then on the yielding stone.
With many a sharp incision ;
With Heaven's own light the sculpture shone ;
He had caught that angel-vision.
Sculptors of life are we, as we stand
With our souls, uncarred, before us,
Waiting the hour, when, at God's command,
Our lile dream shall pass o'er us,
If we carve it. then on the yielding stone,
With many a sharp incision,
Its heavenly beauty shall be our own,
Our lives, that angel-vision. —Bishop Do one.
Cousin Josephine-
She’s rav cousin, so what harm
For her blessed little aria
Round my willing neck to twine,
And her dear delicious lips,
With their rosy, fluttering tips,
Ever so much,
Jnst to touch
Mine ?
Flic’s my cousin, so you sec,
She.ran’t fall in love with a»e ;
That I always keep in mind.
And, indeed, I’ve always kissed her
As you would a little sister,
Just so that
Might think me
Kind.
Kentucky Volintkkrs. —The Cin
cinnati Guzette of the 4tl* ( says the num
bers of Kentuckians that are wheeling
into the ranks of the Union volunteers
is astonishing. Already two regiments
of the sons of the dark and bloody
ground Lave been formed, and the cry is
still they come. They will all bo at
home to-morrow to vote the straight Un
ion ticket ; and, after the election, the
full quota of troops asked for by the
President, but refused by Governor Ma
goffin, will 1 e furnished.
■ ——
Defences at Washington. —The
Capitol and tho Treasury «t Washington
arc most effectually barricaded with bar
rels of cement, flour, and the cast-iron
plates intended for the completion of tho
great dome of tho Capitol. Martial law
has been proclaimed over the Capitol.—
Sixteen thousand barrels of flour are
stored in tho crypts, together with thous
ands of barrels of bacon, hogsheads of
molasses, and tierces of rice.
An Imperial Dubl.—A duel is said
to bo likely to come off in England, be
tween Prince Jerome Napoleon, cousin
to tha Emperor of Franco, and the du.*
da Aumale, son of tho lata King Louis
Phillippo of Franco. Tho affair is on
aecount of certain statements compromi
sing tho honor of Prince Napoleon, and
contained in a pamphlet lately published
by tho Due da Amnalo.
T».
A Pluo Ugly.—While the company
of Massachusetts boys wero marching
through Baltimore, a big, burly fellow
went up to tho Captain, and sn!d ho had
got a crowd of twenty men who could
lick the whole company. this he
put a pistol to tho Captain’s head, but,
before bo could tiro it off, seventeen bul
lets wero pm into him.
- ■■■—
While tho Seventh regiment was in
Philadelphia, a beautiful Quaker lass,
observing that one of the band was in a
state of great embarrassment for the
lack of a string with which to secura the
mouth of his bag of provisions, observed
quietly: “Friend, I would not give
time an implement of war, but thee
shall have a string to preserve thy food.’’
Then she turned partly away for an in
stant and stooped down, to tie her shoo
apparently, but when sho rose up she
handed to the blushing blower of brass
a neat green band, that a moment be
fore had been doing duty S 3 a—a—a—

Tub Smiths to he Put to a Good
Use. —lt is said to bo the inteution of a
Mr. Charles Smith, in New York, to
coino forward to the aid of tho country
with a regiment of Smiths. He thinks
that thero are enough men of that namo
in Now York alone to establish a right
of way through Baltiworo at «nco. The
officers of tho regiment will all be named
John. ,
To tho suggestion that work bags with
pins, needles, thread, scissors and buttons
will be useful to the volunteers, the Prov
idence Journal replies : “ Doubtless ;
but thread tho needles ! don’t send them
to the poor boys unthreaded. Thero is
not a boy in the regiment who would not
sooner undertake to thrash n secessionist
than to thread a needle.’ -
Theatrical anecdotes are generally
very stupid—so nre most other anec
dotes—and one hates to see a party get
ting into Lis nnecdotage. What is tho
good for mstanco of telling this 6t*ry :
An actress who is a great favorito with
tho gallery, was being complimented" in
tho green room upon the blackness of her
hair. “ Why, it’, dyed,” she replied,
with (he amiable frankness of a true ar
tist. * Dyed,” repeated tho other speak
er, ' why, favorite as you aro, you nre
not yet five and twenty.” “ No, ” said
the lady, “ but you know—‘ whom tho
Gods love, dye ear It.’ ”

Champ and Pain in Stomach, Bowel Com

For the many diseases incident to the human

Internally and Externally
It works equally sure.
What stronger proof of these tacts can be
produced than the following letter received
unsolicited from Rev. A. W. Curt>s:
Romeo, Macomb Co, Mich., July 9, 1860.
Messrs. J, N. Harris <fc Co.
Gentleman:— The confidence I have in
Perry Davis’ Pain Killer as a remedy foi
Colds, Coughs, Burns, Sprains and Rheuma
tism, for the cure of which I have successful
ly used it, induce me to cheerfully recom
mend its virtues to others:
A few months ago I had recourse to it to
destroy a felon; although I had never heard
of its being used for that purpose, but having
no other remedy at hand. I applied the Pain
Killer freely for about fifteen minutes at even
ing, and repeated the application very briefly
the next morning, which entirely destroyed
the felon, and increased my confidence in the
utility of the remedy. Yours truly.

Minister of the Wesleyan Methodist Church.

Has been tasted in every variety of climate
and by almost every nation known to Ameri

MISCELLANEOUS.
The amalgamation of Languages.—Ther» is
agrowing tendency in this »ge to appropriate
the most expressive words of other languages,
and after a while to incorporate them into our
own; thus the word Cephalic, which is from
the Greek, signifying “for the head," is now be
coming popularized in connection with Mr.
Spalding’s great Headache remedy, but it will
soon be used in a more general way, and the
word Cephalic will become as common as
Electrotype and many others whose distinction
as foreign words has Lcen worn away by com
rxon usage until they seem “native anil so the
manor born.”

Headache is the favorite sign by w hich
nature makes known any deviation whatever
from the natural state of tlie brain, and viewed
in this light in many be looked on as a safe
guard intended to give notice of disease which
might otherwise escape attention, till too Into to
be remedied ; and its indications should never
be neglected. Headache may he classified un
der two names, viz : Symptomatic and Miopalli
ic. Symptomatic Headache is exceedingly
common and is the precursor of a great variety
of diseases, among which arc Apoplexy, Gout,
Rheumatism and all febrile diseases. In its
nervons form it is sympathetic of disease of the
stomach constituting sick headache, of hepatic
disease constituting bilious headache, o f worms,
constipation and other disorders of the bowels
as well as venal and uterine affections. Diseases
of the heart are very frequently attended with
Headaches : Ana-mia and plethora sre also affec
tions which frequently occasion headache. Idio
pathic Headache is also very common, being
usually distinguished by the; name of nervous
headache, sometimes coming on suddenly in a
state of apparently sound health and prostrat
ing wt once the mental and physical energies,
and in other instances it comes on slowly .herald
ed by depression of spirits or acerbity of 'tem
per. Inmost instances the pain is in the front
of the head, over one or both eyes; and some
times provoking vomiting ; under this class
may also be named Neuralgia
For the treatment of either class of Headache
the Cephalic Pills have been found a sure and
safe remedy, relieving the most acute pains in a
few minutes, and by its subtle power eradica
ting the diseases of which Headache is tho uner
ring index.

Twenty Millions ok Dollars saved. —Mr.
