A young female; swicWienlan .Was sent to
Massachusetts a few weeke ago by her parents
to be due. ted at a boarding school etar Boston.
Awkward, perverse, illiterate, ahd itrfgretn;
the wit at once the aversion and butt of the
irif li." It happened that frequenter of the boar
din; achool wat a good looking Boston dentist,
of some pretentions, who wished to get him
t If a rich wife from among the pupil. Aware
of hie mercenary motives, and determined to
pimiah blm, the young ladies led him to believe
that their new classmate from Michigan waa an
hoiree. ThU' wa enough for the dentist,
lie Immediately laid siege to the heart of the
Wolverine,'' nd confiding in her ignorance
f etiquette made her a preaent, among other
things, of tome money to buy ber a bag with,
meaning something of tbe reticule order.
H.ghly delighted with the literally of the "how
with atore clothes on," (at she firit called bim,)
(he girl confided the fact to three or four of her
r ew companions. ( Coffee bags had already be
tome quite fashionable for skirts, her com pan
urn requested ber to procure one "'0 make her
Orecs to stick out," as he was pretty smart him
"If, and doubtless desired "his girl" to appear
ro A few evenings afterwards tho dentist es
v. it ted tlie Wolverine to sn evening party, which
wis a fair representation form the boarding
thool. Every thing went on smooth with him,
until his partner threw off her cloak sod boo
opt, and entered the room where the company
wore assembled. Iters bis attention was at
tracted by" the half suppressed tittering of the
chojl girls, and the wonder of the others.
Glancing inquisitively at his companion, who
toll aa grand as Lucifer, ho wss mortified and
enraged to see her ague marked complexion set
ff in horrible contrast with a profusion of green
nbbon bob knots on her bead, while her dress
luck out like the famous Spouting Horn at
Nahant- Mad as a March hare, he soon left
hi r with an expression of disgust, and passed
the remainder of the evoning at a whiat table
in another suit of rooms.
The Michigan girl was true grit, was msd
enough to tesr the eyes out of her "true hear
ted false lover," but she was by her confidents
persuaded not to do any thing violent. Their
advice was that she should return his presents,
.nd 'give him the sack,' or dismissal. "Return
Sim the presents, and give him the sack too 1"
raid one. "Dod-rot him, Til do it, 'fore the bull
i-rowd." She went out, and in a few moments
went into the room, where her companions
vrre gathered around the card table expecting
it scene. A wonderful change had taken place
.11 her dress snd she was straight up and down
s a looti's leg. Advancing to the astonished
('enlist with a queer looking bundle under her
rm, she threw down a pencil, chaip and locket
n the table, exclaiming contemptuously,
Theru's your presents, Mr.," continued
;!in indignant Wolverine, unfolding the myste
rious bundle, before the astonished company,
md throwing it over the head of the petrified
.'ntietr"bere'e your old cofleo bag I won't
ear it another minute!"
Every body was convulsed with laughter at
thia new method of "giving the sack," except
!.o unfortunate dentist. lie sloped immediate
ly and has not been seen in the village since.

.it' the Louisville Morning Courier cttitafos ac
amusing account of the way a backwoodsman
played a strong game of the. 'advantagea over
a professed thimble-ringer. The former hap
pened to be at a place where the knight of the
thimbles was looking out for prey, and, aa he
was dressed in homespun wss et once put 'down
as a 'soft snap.' Linsey, as the supposed 'green
'un' is termed in the story, bad just tossed off a
(lass of whiskey, when Tbimblerif commen
ced hit operations with
Well, stranger, it's cold and dark out ; sup
nose we play some small game to pass awsy the
time,' all the time fingering csrelessly a dirty
pick or cards that lay on the table at which be
wis sitting. Linsey replied
'I can't aay, stranger, I'm all the way from
Rullit, and I've hearntell you folks in town are
as keen at briars, and I'm only a 'cider nag ;'
howsomever, I don't keer if I do play, purvi
ded 1 understsnds all about it beforehand.'
Thal'e right,' says Thimblerig ; 'wo play
'sir, with all the 'advantages' in; and if you
beat me, why, well and good there's no more
of it.'
'Well, them terms is fair enuff.and Iaint the

with the eerteinly of making hit expenses.
A word of the tori'a enuff old boss 1 Put up
your money,' says Linsey, at the same time
logging at a long leather purse which he had
in hie pocket. Thimblerig laid down a dollar,
which he had no sooner done than Linsey cooly
tttt it in hipock(t, saying
'.Veil, that jsmVe dene ! What'll yoo play

Ma. OiKiir: I believe it the uty of every
one lo do whatever in their power I ies, for the bene
fit of their fellow man, and having had positive
proof in my own family, of the wouderful prnpertiee
of your Depurslive 8yrup of Sarsaparilli, I m ft
conscientinualy recommend il to the afflicted. We
bad the mii-fortune to .tse two of our children, by
the breaking out of ulceroua sores that covered the
face, bead and neck, although we had some of Ihe
most scientific phyr-icians to attend Ihrm and had
tried all the known lemedies, including rtwsim's
Panacea, without avail. Another of my children
waa attacked in the same manner, her face and
nerk was completely covered; the discharge waa so
offensive, and the disease at auch a height, that we
despaired of ber life. Seeing the wonderful effects
of your Depurslive Syrup of Snrsaparilbi, we were
induced to make trial of it, aa the last resort ; it
acted Kke e charm ; the ulcers commenced healing
Immediately, a few bottles entirely restored her to

ever since. Aa a purifier of tbe blood, I verily be
lieve it bee not ita equal,

Pnttiextritu, February 10. 1838.
FOR twenty yeara I waa aoverely afflicted with
Tittew on the Face end Head: the disease
commenced when I waa seventeen years old, and
continued until the fall of 1836, varying in vio
lence, but without ever d iaappearing. During most
of ibe time, great part of my free waa eovered with
the etuption, frequently attended with violent itch,
ing ; my bead awelled al timea until it felt as fcf it
would buret Ihe swelling waa so great, that I could
scarcely get my hal on. During the long period
Ihat I was afflicted with the disease, I used a great
many a plications, (among them several celebrated
preparation-) aa well aa takinc inward remedies,
including a number of bottles of Swaim'i Panacea,
Extract of Sttrtaparilla, etc. In fact, it would be
imposaible to enumerate all the medicines I used.
I wss also nnder the Cars of two of the most dis
tinguished physieiane of this city, but without re
ceiving moch benefit, and I deapaired of ever being
cured. In the fall of 1836, the disease st the time
being very violent, I commenced using the Rote
Ointment, (prepsred by Vanghan it Davis.) In
a few applicaliona the violent itching ceased. Ibe
swelling abated, tbe rruption began to diaappear,
and before I hd uced ajar the di-ease was entirely
cured, ft has now been nearly a year and a half
since, and there ia not a vestige of Ihe diaeaie re
maining, except the scars from the deep pits formed
by the dieae. Il ia impossible for me to describe
in a certificate the eovrrity of the disea-e and my
suffering, but I will bo ple.ised to give a fuller ac
count to any person wanting further satisfaction,
who will call on me. At the time I commenced
tiring the Rjse Ointment I would have given hun
dreds of do'.lais to be riJ of the disease. Since n
sing it, 1 have recommended it to several persons,
(nrnong them my mother, who bad the disease bad
ly on her arm.) who were all cured by it.

k with Tetter in the hands and feet for upwards
of torty years ; the disease waa attended generally
with violent itching and swelling. I applied lo a
number of phyKicinns, and used a great many appli
cations without effecting a cure. About a year
since, I applied the lloe Ointment, which entirely
4opied ihe itching, and a few applications immedi
ately cured the disease, which there has been no
