The following is a passage from the laughable tale of 'Desperation," one of the rich articles which are embrac ed in the literary remains of the late Willis Uaylord Clark. It is only nec essary to premise that the writer is a Philadelphia student who, after a sto len fortnight amid the gayeties of a "Washington season," finds himsell (through remissness of a chum) at Bal timore, on his way home, without a penny in his pocket. He stops at a fashionable hotel, nevertheless, where, after tarrying a day or two, he finally, at the heel of a grand dinner, omnus solus in his private apartment flanked with abundant Champaign and Burgun dy, resolves to disclose all to the landlord. Summoning a servant, he says: Ask the landloid to step up to my rim :inrl lirimr tii hilt " ...... He clattered down stairs, giggling, and shortly thereafter his master ap . lien red. He entered with a generous smile, that made me hope for ihe best his house afforded, and that, just then, was tt edit. "I low much do I owe you," said I. lie handed me lh bill with all the grace of polite expectancy. Letrnesee seventeen dollars.

I iri-ipvptii inform you thitt at present I ain outol money; but 1 know by your philan thropic looks, that you will be satisfied when I tell you that if 1 had it. I wou'd give it to you with unqualify d pleasure. But you see my mt having the change with me is the reason I don" t do it; and I am sure you will let the matter stand, and say no more nbout it. I am a stranger to you, that's a fact; but in the place where 1 came from, i.ll my acquaintances know me, as easy as can be." ; The landlord turned all colors "Where do you live any how?" "In Wash 1 should say, Phila delphia." His eyes flashed with angry disap pointment. "I see how it is, Mister; my opinion is that you are a blackleg. You don't know where your home is. You begin with Washington and then drop it for Philadelphia. You must pay your bill." "But I can't." "Then I'll take ynur clothes; if I don't, blow me tight!" "Scoundrel !'' said I, rising bolt up right, 4,do it it you dare! do it and leave the rest to me!" There were no more words. He arose deliberately, seized my only in expressibles, and walked down stairs. Physid'ans say that no two excite ments can exist at the same time in one system, external circumstances drove away almost immediately, the confu sion of my brain. 1 arose sind looked rut of the win dow. The snow was descending as I drummed on the pane. An unhappy wight, sans cuutte, in a strange city, no money and slightly inebriated. A thought struck me. I had a large rull cloak, which w ith my other apportion' inents save those lie took, the landlord had pared. I dressed immediately; threw on my boots over my lair white drawers, not unlike small clothes; put on my cravat, vest and coat, laiil a travelling cap from my trunk, jaunting ly over my Ion-bead, and Hinging my mantle gracefully about me, m.ule my way through the hall into the street. " Attracted by shining lamps in the portico of a new hotel, a few squares from my. first lodgings, I entered, re cerdsd some name on the books, an i l.espoke u bed. " Every thing was fresh and neat; t very servant attentive; all nugurrd well, 1 kepi myself closely cloaked pulled a cigar, and le tired to bed to mature mv plot- "Waiter, just brush my clothes well, my fine fellow," said I, in the morning. 4s he entered my room. "Mind the pantaloons; dont spill any thing from the pockets; there is money in both." '1 don't sre no pantaloons." " The devil you don't. Whero are they?" . "Can't tell, I'm sure; I don't know, s help me God.1' "Go down, sirrah, and tell your master to come up here immediate ly." The publican was with me in a moment. 1 had arisen and worked my face be fore the c;lass into a fiendish look of passion. "Landloid!'' exclaimed 1, with a fierce gesture, "1 have been robbed in your house; robbed, sir, rob bed! My pantaloons-, and a purse containing three fifty dollar notes are gone. This is a pretty hotel! Is this the wav vou fulfil the injunctions of the Scripture? 1 am a stranger and I find mvself token tn with a vengeance. 1 will expose you at once if 1 um not recompensed." "Pray keep your temper," said the agitated publican, "1 have jusi opened this house, and it is getting a good run; --would you ruin, its reputation for an accident? I will find out the vil lains who robbed you and I will send for a tailor to measure you for your missing garment. Ycur money shall be refunded. Do you not see that your temper is useless?" "My dear st," I replied,"! thank you for your kindness. 1 did not mean to reproach you. If those trowsers can be done to-day, I shall be satisfied; for time is more precious than money Vou may keep the others if you find them, anJ in exchange for the hundred and fifty dollars vl ich you give me, their contents are y urs."

A M1STAKEUU,THE BROKEN PLEDGE ANUTUE I'ATGlKL'- rOKTKAlT. Opposite the St. Clnrles Hotel there stands at the present w riting, or did FnVuv ni'dit, a paintiim of the fat girl in a blue frock, white apron, and pamn- lettes. As an artistical production, it is nothing to brag of. It can never be mistaken as an emanation from the pencil of a Raphael or an Angelo; still it is a likeness of a human being, the softest of the si fur sex; in fact, the coloring for flesh and blood is laid on thick, and by a man high, or up a fee. it might be mistaken for a breathing being. We are tld that there be those who "See Helen's beauty in a brow of Egypt," and of like perverted vision is Michae' Grace ajmi st graceless fellow is Vike far he thought, on Friday night, that the picture of the fat girl was the fat girl herself that the counterfeit pre sentment was the original. "Ah, thin, you're welcome down stairs, darlin," says Mike, addressing the painting (the fat girl be it remem bered, is exhibited in a room 6ver where the portrait hung.) You're welcome do A n stairs, a lanna. O, bind in ages! but its yoursrl' is the fine nrmft.l; but what signifies what you tirj now to what you will be when vou're twentv? Whv bejakes you'd make a wife for a man that'ud be as big as Finn McCoul.' (Here the canvass was agitated by the wind.) "On don't go off in ahull", a cushla," said Mike;"d la word 1 sed of you but what's thrue, for as the ould song ses: " 'Was I Paris, whose deeds are various, Or if, like Homer , I could indite, I'd sound your praise, and your fame I'd raise, I'd thrate your frinds, and your foes I'd light.' " Mike sung this in key so loud that it attracted the ear of the watchmen, who had as great an aversion to street minstrels at night as a toper has to wa ter straight. He hurried to where Mike was holding forth, and in a u an ner as summarily as the revolutionary mobs of Paris hurried off their victims to the guillotine, forced hiin along to th watch-house. "Aisy, Misther," said Mike. 'OH' with you, you vagrant," said the watchman. "If you be poet laureat to the fat girl, I'll let you see that I'm watchman, law- tit to the record er." "Why, you cantankerous, ould thief," said Mike, "can't vou let me bid the crayther good night, and tell her to take care she don t ketch could. "O, look here, old fel er," said the watchman, you are laboring under a hoptical illusion; that was'nt notiiin' but the picter o' the fat girl you was singin' to ;.nd a precious ugly picture it is." "0, d I fray me," says Alike, "if I could have bsttt.er luck ail this comes from breaking the pledge." , When he .arrived at thewatch-house he w.i s searched: a temperance medal and three picayunes were found in his pocket. .

Pic, " ' " . The Great Remedy for Con sumption. Among all the famous medicines foi Consumption none seems to be meeting with greater success, or gaining; a higher reputation than that most wonder ful article, WISTAR'S BALSAM OF WILD CHE BR Y! " .That it stands at the heail of all other remedies is now universally conceded. It has cured thous ands upon thousands ot all classes in cases of the most dangerously consumptive character. And physicians of the greatest eminence throghout our whole country unhesitatingly recommend it, as the MOST POWERFUL CURATIVE of Pulmonary diseases in the whole range of Phar macy. The sales in the Western States have thus far been unparalleled; and the most gratifying proofs of its efficacy have been received from eveiy place where it has been used. Thousands of CONSUMPTIVE PATIENTS have already tested its exalted virtues, and confes sed its surpassing excellent and amazing power The remarkable success of this Balsam is no doubt owing in a great measure to the peculiarly agieea ble and powerful nature of its ingredients. It is a FINE HERBAL MEDICINE! Composed chiefly of WILD CHERRY BARK and the genuine ICELAND MOSS (the latter imported expressly fortius purpose,) the rare med ical virtues of which, are also combined by a new chemical process the best ever discovered for CONSUMPTION OK THE LUNGS. A A A A A A The following we have just re- Hard from Metsrs. Jo -Hit Si. Rowt, Druggist, tn JVewark, in thin Stm e, to whom it wa communicated by John, Wi mer, Esq., citizen of Burlington, Licking Coun ty, Ohio. Burlington, Licking Co., 0., Dec. 1. 1843. Messrs. Joslin &. Howe:-At your request I herewith transmit to you a statement of the case of Mrs. V imer and child, as near as 1 am able to com municate, which you are at liberty to publish if you see fit, as I leel aile.-ire to inform the world of the edicts of the invaluable medicine called Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry to which, by the divine blessing, I am indebted for the resloratiou to health of my wife and child. About live years ago, Mrs. Wimer was attacked with a violent cough, pain in the chetaud side, and symptoms of approaching consumption,. Dur ing the intervals from lhat time to sometime in February last, sin.- had been treated by eminent Physicians from Utica, Sylvania, Homer, Chat ham and Newark ,and with only partial relief ol the most urgent symptoms. About one yearago,she caught a violent cold, which seated upon the Lungs, producing an alarming aggravation of all her pre vious synitoms. Her Physician was sent fur, and despite his best efforts, she began rapidly to sink under her disease. Cough, Expectoration Hectic, together with night sweats, soon reduced her to a complete skeleton. In February last, her attend ing Physician, deemed her case altogether hopeless, a council was called, and after deliberating upon her case unanimously pronounced her to be beyond the leach of means, and expressed their opinion that she could survive but a short time, one or two weeks at farthest. She was at this time entirely confined to her bed, an I scarcely able to articu late, except in a whisper. Her daily paroxysms of coughing would last her uuiuteruptedly from 3 to 5 hours, and so severe were they, that we did ex pect lhat every paroxysm would be the last The physicians in council pronounced her Lungs. Liv er, Kidneys, Spine, and Mucus Membrane of the StoJiach to he incurably diseased. It was at this last extremity that we happened to obtain a pam phlet describing Dr. Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, as applicable to Lung affections. We im mediately sent to you and procured a bottle, and commenced its use at evening by giving her one teaspoon full, and such was the surprising effect, that she was able to pass a comfortable night's rest, without experiencing any paroxysm of coughing, and such was its ultimate effect, that after taking five bottles she was, contrary to the expectations of her physicians, and every one who taw her, en tirely restored to health; and since last summer has done the entire work of her family. After the last altark of Mrs. Wimer, our youngest child, then an infant at the brei-st was taken down, and rapidly sinking, with the same symtoms as its mother, and seeing the happy effect of the Balsam in the case of the mother, we were disposed to make trial pf it for the child, and it was attended with the same perfect success. The above statement can be attested by our phy sician as well as our neighbors and acquaintances, who saw Mrs. Wimer during the course of her sickness. Very truly, yours, fcc. JOHN WIMER. Builington, Licking Co. 0. Let every man, woman and child rend the follow ing, and we are sure that it mutt tatiufy all of the great virtuct of the medicine. Watkh vii.le, Oneida, co. , N. Y., Sept. 15, 1843. Dear Sib: 1 owe it to the alilicted to inform you that in January last I was attacked by a very violent cold caused by working in water, which settled on my lungs. It was accompanied by a very severe pain in my breast and side, and also a distressing cough. I hid in attendance all the best medical aid in our village, and after exhausting their skill to no avail they pronounced my disease a. confirmed Consumption, and one and all gave me up to die. After much persuasion I got the consent of my physician to use Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry prepared by Dr. Wis tar. I purchas ed ol the agent in our place one bottle, before us ing half of which, I began to gain strength, and it was very evident my cough was a great deal better, and my symptom in every way improving. 1 have now used three bottles, and am restored to health. The result is alone owing to the useol Dr. Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, and I take this method of giving you the information, partly to pay the debt of gratitude I owe vou, and partly that others similarly afflicted may know where to apply for relief, ' Respectfully and truly youis, JAMES SAGE.

Several thousand boxes have been sold within the last year, restoring lo health persons in almost every stage of consump tion, and those laboring under the most distressing colds and coughs. Jonathan Hoivarth, esq. Ihe well known temper ance lecturer, took a severe cold last January by sleeping in damp sheets, lhat seemed to have settled in a consumption. He raised a good deal of bloody matter, and his cough was so harrassing and inces sant that he could get no rest hy day or night. Af ter trying various remedies without relief, hetho't that death alone would relieve him of his misery But by the advice of a lady he purchased a box of Sherman's C ugh Lozenges; they gave him great relief, and to his surprise allayed bis cough, made him rest easy, and enabled him to sleep sound all night; three days' use of them mule a new man ol him, and he is recommending Sherman's Lozenges to all his acquaintances.

At times, she has been so alilicted with worms as to require the attendance of two of the best physi cians in the place one doctoring her for one com plaint, and one for another, but getting worse, she removed to Madison, and was under the hands of two of the most celebrated physicians of that place, but all did her no good. She came lo Cincinnati some time since, and began to despair of getting better: indeed she got su bad, the worms came up in her throat her suflc-rings became almost intoler able. Healing ol the many cures performed by Sherman's Lozenges, she thought she would try them last August. I stepped in your store and got a box of the worm lozenges, and I have every rea son to rejoice that I did so. She took but one half box, when the worms came from her in bunches. I could not be positive, but 1 would sup pose that there were from fifty to sixty in each hunch. The last dose brought several while worms, from twelve to fifteen inches long. She began to get well, and fell better than she had for years. Be ing cured, she gave the balance of the box to i neighbor by the name of Herald, who lives a short distance from us, who has two chilcreu, one five and the other two years of age, who were much troub led with worms, and I have heard since, that by the time they had used up the box, both children were entirely cured."

The OHIO CULTIVATOR will aim to impart such knowledge of the principles and practice of improved agriculture, as will enable farmers to increase the value and productions of their lands, and obtain greater r-turnt for their capital and labor. It will give descriptions of the different breeds cf domestic animals, with remarks on their comparative value, their management, diseases, &.C.; also of improved agricultural implements, labor saving inventions and machinery, farm build ings, fences, itc; (frequently illustrated with engravings.) It will also encourage the formation and support of Agricultural Societies throughout the State, notice their proceedings, and will afTord a medium of communication through which the friends ot improvement in Ohio may become known to each other, aud publish the results of their experiments, discoveries and plans of opera tion. Paiticular pains w ill be taken to give the most cnirect reports of the markets and the crops, both of this country and of England. And as the Eng lish provision trade is becoming one of great im portance to the farmers of Ohio, arrangements have been made through personal friends of the editor in England for receiving by the steamships, the latest intelligence on the subject, for each num. ber ol the Cultivator. By these means farmers may learn how to obtain better prices for their pioductions, as well as to increase the quantity aud improve the quality thereof. As another means ol promoting the interests aud happiness of the rural population of Ohio, the Cultivator will aim to diffuse more general taste f..r the pursuit and productions of Horticulture belter knowledge of the value of a supply of fine frui's and vegetables lor a lamily, and the means of procuring them; aud of the la; ting happiness lhat may result to parents and children, hy an ii c cased attention tn neatness and laste around our dwel lingsa little expense and labor devoted to mak ing our homes attractive, and surrounding them v ilh more of nature's own ornaments trees and shrubs and flowers. Nature has evidently designed that Ohio should he the first and greatest agricultural State in the Union; and its farming population, already num bering nearly two millions, may be the must inde pendent, prosperous and happy, if they will only awake to their own interests The inarch of im provement which has of late caused surprise and rejoicing to millions in Europe, has commenced with rapid strides in portions of this country, where light aud intelligence is diflu-ed hy agricul tural publications. Will the fanners of Ohio, w ho ought to occupy the hist rank, consent to lemaiu behind the age, and not make one effort to elevate their noble profession.' r nends of improvement! men of education and influence! will yuu mil lend vour aid to this cause? Though you may not have a farm, or even a ga-den to cultivate, you are concerned in the promotion of agriculture, lake the Ohio Cultivator, then, and show it to your larmuig neighbors, persuade tliein to read and to think, as well ar to labor; and you will soon have the satisfaction of seeing them become better tanners aud better neighbors. The editor deems it unnecessary ly speak of his own quahlicatinns for this enterprise. Having been for five years past, engaged in conducting a similar publicatiau, which has numbered nearly twenty thousand subscribers, and over three thou sand of them in Ohio, and having on several occasions travelled through the Slate in various directions, to observe its agriculture, he trusts he is not a stranger to the inhabitants of Ohio, or unqualified to be of service to them. But tt is not so much upon his own judgment or abilities that he depends, as upon the contributions of more experienced and practical writers, which (as will be seen by the first number,) have been freely pro mised for the columns of the Cultivator, and can not fail to give it interest and value. CO- The Cultivator will be issued on the first and fifteenth of each month, commencing with January, 1S45, in large quarto form, (8 page,) making a large volume, with title page and index, suitable for binding, at the end of the year.

NOW IS THE TIME fOR NEW SUBSCRIPTIONS' - Graham' American Monthly Magazine, will commence a new volume, December 10th, I844, with the January number. Its long and univer sally successful career, from its commencement until the present lime, when it has a circulation exceeding by thousands any other Magazine in the country, is perhaps as good an evidence of its great and increasing merit as the publisher has it in his power to offer. To his old subscribers, be trusts 110 assurances are necessary of bisdetermination to maintain its present ascendancy over all the rival periodicals of the country. The engagement, per. inanently, during Ihe past year, of such men as Bryant, Cooper. Paulding, Dana, Longfellow, Hoffman, Neal, Mancur, etc., ofhigh reputation in the literary world, as regular contributor, ii addition to a previous list, embracing the first names in Ihe nation, is a sufficient guarantee that the work will continue to be the principal medium of communication between the bat author and the public. , t - ' Graham' Magazine ha been, from it establish ment, more than any other, the favorite periodical of the people of the United Slates Though its plan does not eutirely exclude article of the most important character, such as have raised Black wood and some other foreign journals to their high influence and reputation, its pages are prin cipally, devoted to what is usually termed light literature. - It is distinguished from other publi cations of similar aims by the literary and artistic merit of it content. While those of other works are unknown or anonymous, the contributors to this are the most eminent authors olour age and country; the very ; creators, founders, of our Ns tional Literature. Especially is it celebrated containing the choicest pro dictions of the finest female writers of Ihe time: ' Every number con. taius gem which oaay be appealed l with pride by the sex, as Vindicating their intellectual eminence.
