tlfft poetry.
5he sits in a fashionable parlor,
An J rocks in her easy chair;
And jewels-are in her hair ;
She winks and giggles and simpers.
And simpers and giggles and winks,
Ami though she talks but little,
Tis a good deal more than she thinks.
lies ald in the morning
Till nearly the hour of noon,
Then comes down snapping and snarling,
Hrcause she was called so soon,
Her hair is still in papers,
ller cheeks still fresh with paint
llomains of her last night's blushes,
IJeforeihe intended to faint !
She doats upon men unshaven
And men with flowing hair;
She's eloquent over moustache ;
Tht-y give such a foreign air !
She talks of Italian music, "
And falls in love with the moon;
An l it' a mouse were to meet her,
She would sink away in a swoon.
Her feet are so very little,
Her hands are so very white,
Hv-r jewels so very heavy.
And her head so very lietit.
Her olor"ifi made of cosmetics
Thongh this the will never own.
Her body's made mostly of cotton,
Hor heart is made wholly of stone.
She falls in love with a fellow
Whofwells with a foreign air;
He marries her for her money,
She marries him for his hair!
"One of the very best matches"
IJoth are well mated in life ;
She s got a fool for a husband,
He's got a fool for a wife !
One evening, a number of us were seated
in the bar-room of the only hotel in the vil
lage of Frotown th civilian's portion of
Camp Floyd, in Utah, during the unpleas
antness between the government 'and the
Mormons, in 1S5S warming our shins be
f.rti the huge fire that blazed in the old
fashioned lire -place. The evening had wan
el, and was fat approaching the small
hours, when the footsteps of a horse ap-pre-aehinz
the house were heard. t
The niht was dreadfully cold and bleak ;
the wind was howling across the alkili plain,
driving the falling rain against the windows,
vau-:nc them to rattle as if some one was
throwing shot against the glass, and it was
so dark, why, "Egypt's dark sea" was not
a circumstance to it. I have no idea how
dark Egypt's dark sea was, but I have seen
the remark somewhere, and it sounds like a
food simile, therefore I use it particularly
a I have got stuck for a better.
Su l lenly the animal halted in front of the
li"Ue, and a cheery voice called out "Hal
loa." The landlord went to the door, and par
tially opening it, peered out into the dark
iie5. but not being able to discover any thing

"I ain't going away, not it there's a roof

g-j'm-i to, or have a ught."
"I calculate, strang'.T, you can get c
ivnim idated with a lively shake up, if you
ire spilin' for a fisht."
" N-it edzactly spilin, but some body will

uj: here much longer."
"1'un't know about that ; but one thing
is ?:rtin, you can help yourself come in or
stay out, jess as you feel like. We ain't
reticular," and the landlord closed the door
and returned to his scat before the fire, and
r-il'i'i his l'owhatan pipe from his pocket,
roere lod to fill it with tobacco preparatory
to enjoying a smoke.
A minute had scarcely elapsed before the
I'.-ur opened, and a large powerful man eu
tereJ. His hair hung in wringlets down his
lack and clustered over his shoulders. His
faee was almost hidden behind a bushy black
l a.r of whiskers, and beneath a broad
briu'uied hat. lie approached the fire,
"uiie the rain dripped from his buckskiu
tarinouts, leaving a httle rivulet on the

I as he looked around and took a mental
.areatory of those present.
"Trying to l.e comfortable." replied the
IviL.rd. "We always does."

"Co.,k s .'one out, and I do't think thar
: ar.ytk:i, ir, the kitchen, 'ceptiny some
-1 wiitles. You can go in there and see
you can find.
The Granger took a candle, lit it, and
K-eeJed to the kitchen, the way being
! 1 out by the landlord. After he had
"e out, the landlord roused an Indian
'" who was sleeping in one corner of the
r"o:ii, and sent him out to take care of the
'trm s.r s horse, which had been left stand
: i'i front of the door. Some fifteen niin
uie paed away, when the stranger return -y
' from the kitchen, followed by a large
''ack cat,
"Wh.seeat is that, and where did it
-'.! from ?" asked the landlord.
1 l.at ar animile b'longs to me, as was
Droult troru New Mexico. It is a' smart
c;- it is."
And the owuer a lucky fellow," broke iu
a taciturn old gambler, who had been smo
king his pipe all the evening, without ut
tetingaword. "You is right, old fellow J a black cat
always brings good luck, and that cat has
been my constant companion for three years.
He's better nor a dog, and just as much
company. Why he knows more nor a man.
Don't you Sam ?"
The cat jumped upon its master's shoul
der, and began to purr and arch its back, as
if greatly pleased at the praise bestowed
upon it by its owner.
"I say, landlord, have yot got any chick
ens? I'd like to have one for breakfast."
"So would I," replied the landlord, "but
t can't get it. There ain't any one in this
region as has got chickens, 'cepting the
Curnel of the cavalry, opposite, and he
keeps a guard standing over the stable in
which they roost."
The straDgcr again took 3 survey of the
party, and then said :
"You look like a good set of fellows.
Now I'll tell you what we'll do. If you are
agreed, we will have chicken for our break
fast, and the Curnel will suffer, What say
you all?"
'It would be a little too dangerous to at
tempt to nip them chickens," said the gam
bler, "although I must say I think a piece
of chicken would taste mighty nice."
" Whar did you say the chickens roosted?"
asked the stranger.
The landlord told him, and as he did so
the stranger stroked the back of his cat.snd
repeated the landlord's words. Having
concluded he said, "Now, Sam, you must
get us one of them chickens, and you have
got to be keerful, cr you will lose one of
your lives." He then opened the door, and
the cat walked out.
The stranger narrated several wonderful
feats that had been performed by his cat,
and thereby managed to while away some
fifteen or twenty minutes, when a scratching
at the door was heard, lie got up and
opened it, and in marched Sam, holding a
chicken by the neck.
Every one iu that room was dumbfound
ed, for they had no idea that the cat would
accomplish the Li.idinj; of his master.
, "Sam, one is not enough ', we must have
another. Be a good fellow and get it for us,"
said the stranger, as he again opened the
door for the cat te go out.
The company had not been done expres
sing their astonishment at the wonderful
knowledge of the feline, ere he returned
once more with a fine pullet.
"You are a noble fellow, and deserve
something, and blame if you shan't have
the heads of both them birds. In the mean
time, you had better lay down iu front of
the fire and dry yourself, or you will have a
bad cold iu the morning."
The cat walked to the hearth corner and
quietly coiled himself up, and was soon fast
asleep. The stealing of the Colonel's chick
ens evidently pleaded the landlord greatly,
for he immediately brought out his jug, and
brewed a large pitcher of punch and invited
us all to partake of it. We drank punch,
told stories, and sung songs for two or three
hours, and then weut to bed, and when we
separated the stranger took his cat with
him. The chickens were given to the cook,
who served them up the next morning for
breakfast, being careful to burn the feath
ers and such portions ascould not be cook
ed, to prevent detection, should a guard be
sent around for the purpose of hunting for
the thieves.
At the time I write of, the soldiers had
but recently been paid off, and every house
in the town was a gambling house and li
quor saloon, and the three-fourths of those
in and about the town were gamblers by
profession. Entering one of these saloons
the afternoon following the eve as above
narrated, I found the stranger seated be
hind a table, upon which was piled several
hundred dollars in gold and silver coin, a
number of packs of cards, and by them was
lying the cat. I invited the stranger to
take a drink, and he got up and accompa
nied me to the bar, and as he did so, he
said :
"Sam, keep a sharp look out, or some of
the cash will be nipped."
We stood at the bar some minutes, wait
ing oar turn to be served, when we were
suddenly startled by a yell of agony. Turn
ing around, we observed a soldier dancing
around the room with the cat el'nging to
his hand. The stranger leaped forward,
and catching the scUier by the throat, said:
"You have been trying to steal something
from my table."
"No I haven't," was the dogged reply.
"You can't deceive me.- What is that
you have iu your hand. A twenty dollar
piece, as sure as 1 live. Give it up," and
he took a double eagle from the soldier's
hand, and giving fiiru a kick, sent him
headlong into the street.
"It won't do to try to steal anything from
me while Sam is on guard. We do all the
stealing that isdone, don't we, Sam?" said
the stranger, as he turned to the bar to ob
tain the drink which had been compounded
for him, while the cat jumped on the table
and resumed his position as guard over his
master's treasure.
Having taken his drink, the stranger re
sumed bis seat be.. ind his table, and very
quickly began to deal monte to a crowd who
collected around him.
Several days passed away before I saw J
the stranger again, although I heard of him
and his cat a dozen times a day. In fact,
Sam and his tricks had become the topic
of conversation in mp7 He was as faith
ful as a dog, and followed his master where
ever he went. The dogs at first manifested
a disposition to pitch into him, but unlike
other cats, he would not run, and he had a
trick of leaping upon their backs, and seiz
ing hold of them with his teeth, and reach
ing for their eyes with his sharp daws.
He would whip the largest dog in the camp
in- less time thfcn it takes to say Jack Rob
inson, and after he had defeated several of
the largest and fiercest, he was let alone and
given a wide berth by the remainder of the
This cat was a strange fellow. lie would
pay no attention to any one but his master,
whom he would follow Kke a spaniel. He
would suffer any body to stroke his back,
but it was utterly impossible to get him to
recognke any act whatever. He was al
ways at the gambling table, apparently act
ing as a "lookout," for if any one attempt
ed to pick up what is known among gam
blers as a "sleeper," he would pounce upon
and give them a taste of the qualify of his
teeth, but if they attended to their own
money, Sam was perfectly quiet.
Some three-lbonths after the first appear
ance of the gambler at the camp, with his
cat, an awful tragedy took place. Thegain-
bler had been having a remarkable run of
good luck, and had won somewhere between
twenty-five aud thirty thousand ' dollars.
This he had changed from coin into de
mands on the United States Treasury, for
convenience, and declared that he was going
to leave the country. Times were getting
dull. The soldiers had spent all the money
they had, and it had gradually found its
way into the hands of a few persons, and
they were not coin to ran the risk of losing
it at the gambling table ; therefore, the
gamblers were having rough times, and one
by one, they were leaving and seeking other
regions. The owner of the cat announced
his intention of going to Pike's Peak, where
there was a prospect of lively times, as the
immigrants to the mines were beginning to
He had kept perfectly sober during his
stay at the camp, but now that he was ready
to take his departure, he got to drinking,
and kept on a spree for aejeral days. Du
ring this time he became excessively quar
relsome, and on several occasions had drawn
his pistol and fired at persons, but had not
bit any one. Quite a feeling of indignation
against him had been aroused, and dark
threats of lynching were heasd from various
There lived at the camp a wajon master
named Harry Price, who was a quiet, peacea
ble man, beloved by all, who was never
known to engage in a quarrel." He went to
the stranger, told him of the feeling that
had been aroused, and advised him to be
more circumspect in his conduct. Instead
of taking the advise in the spirit it was
given, the gambler, without a word, drew
his pistol and khot Price through the heart,
causing instant heath.
And now Comes the strancest part of this
strange story. The moment he fired his
pistol and poor Price fell, the cat jumped
upon its master's shoulders and seized him
by the throat with its teeth. In vain he
struggled to throw it off ; it clung to him
with the tenacity of a bull dog, "an J did not
release its hold until its muster had raised
his pistol and blown its head to pieces.
The greatest excitiment followed the
murder. The murderer tried to escape, but
the crowd, summoned by the report of the
pistol, collected too quickly, and he was
captured. In less time than it takes to nar
rate it, the excited crowd had procured a
rope, placed it around the neck of the
miserable man, and swung him to the end
of a wogon tongue which wa3 elevated for
the purpose.

And Whekkas, It is - declared by the
second section of VI. article of the Consti

otherwise qualified under existing laws, lie
entitled to vote at all general and special
elections in this Commonwealth."
And Whercas. It is my constitutional
and official duty "to take care that laws be
faithfully executed ;" and it has come to my
knowledge that sundry assessors and regis
ters of voters have refused and are refusing
to assess and register divers colored male
citizens of lawful age, and otherwise quali
fied as electors : .
Noto therefore, in considerations of the
premises, the County Commissioners of said
county are hereby notified and directed to
instruct the several Assessors and Registers
of voters thereof to obey and conform to the
requirements of said constitutional amend
ments and laws ; and the Sheriff of said
county is hereby authorized and required to
publish in his Election Proclamation for the
ensuing elections the Herein recited consti
tutional amendment, ast of Congress, and
act of Legislature, to the end that the same
may be known, executed and obeyed by all
assessors, registers of voters, election offi
cers, and others; and that the rights and
privileges guaranteed therein moy be secur

Temperance. Within the last five years
and a half, the Massachusetts Alliance seems
to have accomplished a good work among
the churches and congregations of that Com
monwealth. In that time, Rev. Mr. Combs,
who ha3 acted as agent, his addressed not
less than 627 public schools, 83 of them
twice. The pledge has been signed by 17,-
133 pupils. -The Secretary of the Alliance
has addressed 300 Sabbath schools. The
"S. S. Temperance Book," prepared by
the Alliance, containing 200 pages, with
blanks for records and signitures, has been
adopted in 200 schools. The total number
of signatures to the pledge, obtaiued by this
means in the entire period, is estimated at
from 75,000 to 100,000.-
The orgin of all mankind was the same ;
it is only a clear and a good conscience that
makes a man noble ; for that is derived from
heaven itself. It was the saying of a great
man that if we could trace our descent, we
should find all slaves to come from princes,
and all princes from slaves ; and fortune has
turned all things topsy-turvy in a long series
of revolutions ; besides, for a man to spend
his life in pursuit of a title, that serves only
when he dies to furnish out an epitaph", is be
low a man's business. Seneca.

The Kidneys are too ia number, situated at the.
upper part ot the loin, surrounded by fat, aad
consisting of three partx, vis : the Anterior, thw
Interior, and the Exterior-
The anterior absorbs Interior consists of tis
sues or veins, whioh serve as a deposit for the
urine and convey it to tbe exterior. The exte
rior is c conductor also, terminating ia tingl
tube, and called the ('refer. The ureters are oa
nected with the bladder.
Tbe bladder is composed of vanoas oeveringe
or tissues, divided into parts, via: the Upper; the
Lower, the Nervous, and the Mucous. The upper
expels, the lower retains. Many have a desire te
urinate without tbe ability, others urinate with
out the ability to retain. This frequently eccars
in children.
To cure there affections, we must bring into ac
tion the mu.-Ies, which are engaged in their va
rious functions. If they erencglected, Gravel or
Dropsy may ensue.
The reader must alto be made aware, that how
ever slight may be the attack, it is sure te affeet
the bodily health and mental powers, as oar flesh
and blood are supported from these source.
Goi-t, oa Rbei-uatisw. Piia occurring la the
loins is indicative of the above diseases. They
occur in persons disposed to acid stomach aad
chalky concretions.
Th Gravel. TBe gravel ensues from neglect
or improper treatment of the kidneys These or
gans being weak, the water is not expelled fsDsa
tbe bladder, but allowed to remain; it become
feverish, and sediment forms. It is from this de
posit that the stone is formed, aad gravel ensmee.
Dropsy is a collection of water in some parts ef
the body, and bear sdiffere&t names, aoeotding te
the parts affected, via: when generally diffused
over the body, it is called Anasarca ; waea of the
Abdomen, Ascites; when of the chest, Hydrothe
rax. Tbsaisijt.-Uelmbold's highly concentrated
compound Extract Dacha is decidedly one of the
best remedies for diseases ef the bladder, kidneys,
gravel, dropsical swellings, rteumatisu, and goaty
affections. Under Ibis head we have arranged
Dysurie, or difficulty and pain in passing water,
Scanty Seerstion, or small and frequent dischar
ges of water; Strangury, or slopping of water;
Hematuria, or bloody mine; Gout and Rheaaa
tism of the kidners, without any change in quan
tity, but iaerease in color, er dark water. It was
always highly recommended by the lata Dr.
Phyeick, in these afiectione.
This medicine increases the power of digestion
rnd excites the absorbeats into healthy exercise
by which tbe watery or calcareous depositions
and all unnatural enlargements, as well as pain
and ir-fl animation are reduced, aad it is taken by
men, women and children. Directions for use and
diet accompany.

II. T, IlELBaoi.n. Druggist:
I'kab Sib : I n ,ve been a suffers, fer upward
of taeuty years, witb gravel, bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I Lave used various
medicinal prepnrations. and been under the treat
ment of the most eminent Physicians, experien
cing but lit'.le relief
Having seen your preparation! extensively ad
vertised, I consulted wufit,-.y family physician ia
regard to using year Extract Buchew
I did this because I bad used all kinds ef ad
vertised remedies, and had found them worthless,
and come quite injurious ; iu fart. I despaired ef
ever getting well, and determined te Use no rem
edies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredients'.
It was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As yea advertised that it was composed ef bucsB,
cnbebs aud juniper berries, it occurred to me aad
my physician as an excellent combination, and,
with his advice, after an examination of the arti
cle, and consulting again with the druggist, t
concluded to try it. I commenced its bb about
eight months ago, at which time I was eonfined
to my room From the first bottle I was astonish
ed and gratified at the beneficial effect, and after
using it three weeks was able to walk oat. I felt
much like writing you a full statement ef my case
at that time, but thoeght my improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded te
defer and see if it would effect a perfect ears,
knowing then it would be of greater valae te yon
and more satisfactory te me.
I am now able to report that a oare is effected
after using tbe remedy for f re m oaths.
I have not need any bow for three months, aad
feel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Your Buckn being devoid ot any snpleasaat
taste and odor, a Dice tenfaand invigoratorof the
system, I do not mean to be without it whenever
occasion may require its as in such affections.

he refers to tbe following gentlemen :
