But the feeble need not despair. By adopting the right means, they may live as long and enjoy life as much as their more robust neighbors. Physicial invigora tion is, however, necessary to this end; and while the spirituous tonics and nervines usually ad auiisted eventually depress both body and mind, Dr. J. Walker's California Vinegar Bitters invari ably supply new vigoa to the frame, while they regulate every disordered function, Now is the time to subscribe to the Vindicator. It is asserted as a fact that every eanvasser who has turned his atten tion to the introduction of the New Family Sewing Machine in his local ity, or who has been fortunate enough to secure an agency, has outstripped the best efforts in making money of the old and tried Agents of the high priced machines, which latter they S'now replace. The demand is enor monus, and sales so rapid and money ~msde so readily with so little effort ,that Farmers, Tradesmen, Specula itoep &c., are focking into the busi ,as as fast as they can secure terri :tory and get their goods on the ground to supply anxious customers. lbIs marvelous how these machines eisl when exhibited, it being a recog aised fact that the people will buy the best at the lowest price.

Its readers aid found iin every State and Territory, and its quali ty is well known to the public. We shall not only endeavor to keep it fully up to the old standard, but to improve and add to its variety and power. 'IllE WEEKLY SUN will continue to be a thorough newspaper.

It will always contain the most interesting stories and romances of the day, carefully selected and legibly printed. The Agricultural Department is a prominent feature in the Weekly Sun, and its articles will always be found fresh and useful to the farmer. The number of men independent in politics is increasing, 8a1nd the Weekly Scn is their paper especially. It belongs to no party, and obeys no dictation, con tending for principle, and for the election of the best men.

The markets of every kind and the fashions are regularly reported in its columns. The price of the WEEKLY SUN is one dollar a year for a sheet of eight pages, and fifty-six colmans. As this barely pays expenses of paper and printing, we are not able to make any discount or al low any premium to friends who may make special efforts to extend its circula tion.

A Representative and Champion of American Art Taste ! 5 Frospects for 187I--Eighth Tear. STilE ART JOURNAL OF AMERICA, ISSUED MONTHLY. "'A Magnificent Conception, wonderfully carried out." . The necessity of a popular medium for the representation of the productions of dtr great artists, has always Iwen recog. nized, and many attempts have been Snrule to meet the want. The successive Sfailures which so invarihly followed eo-"h I atteimpt.in this country to establish an. art journal, did not prove the inditftr ence of the people of America to the claims of high art. gn soon as a proper appreciation of the want and an ability to meet it were shown, the publlic at once rpllied with enthusiasm to its sup port. and the result was a great artistic and commercial trinmph-TifE ALl)I\E. TIlE ALDINE, while issued with all the regularity. lihas none of the temporary or timely interest characteristic of ordinary perioldieals. It is an elegant miscellany of pure, light and graceful literature; anml a collection of pictures, the rarest speci-d mens of artistic skill, in black and white. Although each succeeding number atords a fresh pleasure to its friends, the real valve and heanty of the ALDINE will be most appreciated after it has heen lumind I up at the close of time year. While other i journals may claim snuperior cheapness, as I compared with r7rals of a similar class, i the ADINE is a nnique and original conll caption-alone and unapproached - abso lutely without compltition in price or I character. The possessor of a complete volume cannot duplicate the quantity of i fine paper and engravings in any other a: shape or number of volunes for ten times 1 its cost; and then, there is the Chromo I besides! e National feature of' THE ALDINE I must be taken in no narrow srnse. Tre 1 art is cosmopolitan. While THE AL DINE is a strictly American institution, it does not confine itself entirely to the t reproduction of native art. Its mission a is to cultivate a broad and appreciative v art taste, one that will discriminate only t on grounds of intrinsic merit. Thns. t while placing before the patrons of TlHE ALPINE, as a leading eharaetcritic, the 3 productions of the most noted American e artists, attention will *always be given to u specimens from foreign n:uters, giving a subscribers all the pleasure and instrue- ) tion obtainable from home or foreign t sources. I The artistic illnstrntion of American i scenery, original with THE ALDINE, is I an important feature, and its magnificent r plats are of a size more appropriate to the satisfattory treatment of details I than can Ibe afforded by any inferior i page. The judicious interspersion of 1 landscape, marine, figure, and animal subjects, sustain an unabated interest, ! impossible where the scope of the work confines the artist too closely to a single style of subject. The literature of THE 1 ALPINE is a light and graceful accom paniment, worthy of the artistic fea tures, with only such technical disqrisi tions as do not interfere with the popu lar interest of the work. Premium for 1875. Every subscriber for 1875 will receive a beautiful portrait, in oil colors, of the same noble dog whose picture in a for mer issue attracted so much attention, "lWAYS UTYNELFISII FRIEND" will be a welcome in every home.

De Witt Tal mage tells that lii own Newfoundland dog (the finest in Brooklyn, barks at it! lthough so natural, no one who sees I this preminm chromo will have the ' slightest fear of being bitten.

For more than half a beetary the Saturday Evening Post has been the GREAT LITERARt WEEKLY of the Country, and has ever borne a widespread and nnblemished reputation for the unsurpoased purity, reinement < and excellence of the Serials. Sketches and Miscellaneous reading matter. It Is pre-eminently The Best Family Paper thht is published in thiscountry, from its never containing anything that would offend the feelings of any one, either in a religious or political sense, ior that - could not be read at any flreieh withoutI objection from the most fastidious. The circulation of the Saturday Even ing Post, through not quite so large perhaps, as its younger contemporaries, is not, like that of some of them, fluctu sting, and too often short-lived, but SURE, SOLID AND SUBSTANTJ!AL, based upon the intrinsic merit of the pa per itself ad, not dependent on any ex trancons influences, such as the poplularl ty of individual writers, &e. Good, however, as the Saturday Even ing Post has been in tihe past, it is our intention to make it still better in the future, and with this object in view we will effect a marked improvement in eve ry department of the paper, and will call to our assistance writers of admitted ability and known reputation. By increasing its former attractions, and adding many judicious and pleas ing novelties, by studying how to please and cultivate the popular taste, by in creasing Industry and enterprise, and by enlarged thcilities, we hope to niake new friends with each and every iaene, and contiune to maintain the claim of the Satllurday Eveing Poet to its title of Tli OLDEST AXND ''U BEST of Family Story Papers.
