"The pD'eular,danger of intoxicting
drinks is their extreme seductiveness,
and in all but unconqucrable atrength
of the drinking-habit when once form
ed; and their peculiar malignity is in
their being the parent or nurse of eve
ry kind of crime, wickedness, and suf
fering.
"I say boldly that no man living
who uses intoxicating drinks is free
from the danger of at least occasional,
and if not occasional, ultimately of
habitual excess. I have myself known
such frightful instances of persons
brought in captivity to the habit,
that there seems to be no character,
position, or circumstances that free
men from the danger. I have known
many young men of the finest pronise
led by the drinking habit into vice,
ruin, and early death. I have known
such become vital paricides. I have
known many tradesmen whom it has
made bankrupt. I have known Sun
day scholars whom it has led to pris
on. t have known teachers, and even
superintendents, whoim it has. dragged
down to profligaey. I have known
ministers of religion, in and out of the
Establishment, of high academic hon
ors, of splendid eloquence, nay, of vast
usefulness, whoni it has faseinated and
hurried over the precipice of public in
famy, with their eyes open, and gazing
with horror on their fte. I have known
mien of the strongest and clearest in
tellect, and of vigorous resolution,
whom it has made weaker than chil
dren and fools. I have known gentle
men of refinement and taste whom it
has debased into brutes. I have known
poets of high genius whom it has bound
in a bondage worse than the galleys,
and ultimately cut short their days. I
have known statesmen, lawyers, and
judges whom it has killed. I have
known kind husbands and fithers
whon it has turned into monsters. I
have known honest maen whom it has
made villians. I have known elegant
and Chri,tian ladies whom it has con
verted into bloated sots.

"A wealthy American merchant of
the city of New Orleans married a
Creole lady of fortune, and together
with the estates and servants there
came into his possession a mulatto
seamtress and her daughter, a child of
seven years. The gentleman was so
ncteh struck with the extraordinary
beautyfof the child, which had the pu
rest Italian features and complexion,
that he resolved to save it from the
life of degradation which was before it,
ani free it and educate it. Ile sent
her to a Northern school where she
reinahied until her sixteenth year-so
young was she when she weit to the
North. Beloved by all her compan
ions, the idol of the institute, and ea
ressed by every one, she left to return
to the South, as she supposed to the
"roof of lhr uncle." A young Louis
iuia gentlemen, who had seen her in

LeULved by her, sought her hand on
Iher return. The marriage day wa:,

THE WIFE-It needs no guilt to
break a husband's heart; the absence
of content, the mutter-ings of spleen,
the untidy dress and chieer-less home,
the forbidlding scowl arid deserted
hearth-- these and other nameless
neglects without a crime among thieni
have harrowed to the qnuick the
heart's core of niany a man, and
planted there, beyond the reach of
cure, the germ of dark detspalir. Oh!
maniy woman, before that sight ar
r mives. dwell on the recolections of
her youth, and cherishming the dear
idea of that tuneful time, awaken
and keep alive the promise she then
so kindly gave. And though she
may beC the inijuredl, riot the injuring
one- the forgotten not the forgetting
wife- a happy allusion to the hour
of peaceful love-a kindly welcome
to a comfortable home- a amile of1
love to banish hostile words-a kias
of peace to pardon all tihe past, andI
the hardest heart that ever locked it
self within the breast cf selfi man,
will soften to her charms, and bid
her live, as she had hoped, lier years
in niatchiless bliss, loved, loving and
contenit-the source of comufort, and
the spring of joy.

CUMNO Ti ToorTHACE...-The Cour
ier des Etats Unis relates the fol
lowing:
"A dentist of high reputation, liv
ing on the Boulevard at Paris, was
lately astonished by a somewhat novel
and curious incident. Every day at
precisely the same hour his door-bell
was rung with furious violence. This
of itelf was not partiilarly astonish
ing to one accustomed to receive visit
ors whose pains Imiglit readily forget
the courtesy due to bell-pulls, and
whlose inovements were naturally Con
vulsive. 'But on rutnting to the door in
miswer to the imperative summnons,
the doinestic every day found no visit
or, but instead, upon the Inat, a
live frane piece, placed there by un
known hands. This rtysterious char
ity continued several davs in succes
siion, and was finally <Iiscovered by
the artifice of waiting behind the
door for the ytsterious ringer. This
was found to be no other than an un
happy Sul-ieet w ho came every day to
have a tooth drawin, 11otit the pain of
which he suflered tetribly. But
on arriviig at the dentit.'s door he
found, as all the vor-ld ha.s often be
fore ihund, that his iching tooth sud
denly ciised to annoy hin, an ef
fect which he readily attributed to
the sudden apprnach of the opera
tor, whom with linstidious honesty he
thus repaid. The dentist, who, by
the way was equally honest, had the
greatest dilliculty in persuading his
eccentriepattron to accept the restitu
tion of tihe Inoney, whieh ho thought
but a feeble reiunerationi for such
eflicacious consultation.

DIGESTIVE FLUID
OR, GASTRIC JUICE.
Prepared from nesS:'T, or the fourth Stomach
of the Ox, after directions of Baron Liebig, the
great Physiological Chemist, by J. 6. Ilouun.
TON. M1. D., 'lifladelphia, Pa.
This is a truly wonderful remedy fur Indigcs
tion, Iyspejwin, Jaundice, Liver ,Conphatnt,
Coustipation, and Debility, Curidi after Na
ture's own metld, by Nature'sown Agent, the
Gastric Juice.
rgj Half a teaspoonful of Pepsin, infused
in water, will digest or dissolve, Fer Pounds
of Roast Berf, in about two hours, out of the
Stomach.
Pepsin is the chief element, or Great Digest
ing Principle of the Gastric Juice-the Sol -ent
of the Food, the Purifying, Preserving, d)d
Stimulating Agctnt of the t Stompach and lites
tines. It is extracted from the Digretive Ston
ach of the Ox, thus forming an artificial Diges
tive Fluid. precisely lake the nattral Gastric
Juice in its Chemical powers, and furnishiing a
Complete and Perfect Substitute for it. By the
aid of this prepartion, the pains and evls o.,
Itndigestion and Uyspepsia are removed , jist as
they would b by a healthy Stomaci. It is do;
imql wmders for Dyspeptics, curing cases of Do
bility, E-,maciation, Nervous Decliine,and D)ys
peltic: Consitntption, supposed to be on the verge
of the grave. The Scientifie Evidence uponi
which it is based, is itt thu higiest degree Curi
ous and Itemarkable.
tClENl'TIFIC EVIDENCE!
Baron Liebig in his ccle brated work on Ane
mal Chemistry, says : " An artificial Digestiv.
Fijuil, analogous to the Gastric Juice, may be
readily prepared fron the mucous membratte of
tlhe stonauh of the Calf, inl which varlous arq
eles of food, as meat and eggs, will be softe ted,
changed and digested, just in the sante magner
as they would he in tjie lntnan stotnach,
Dr. Combe, in his valuabld writijtgn og th
npnxtm ift nrltie qitmat- d Au6 4m
J uice is a prominent and all-prevailing cause of
Dyspepsia;" and lte states that " adistinguished
professor of medicine in London, who was se
verely aflhicted with this complaint, finiding
every thing else to fail, had recotirse to the
Gastric Juied, obtained from the estmachs of
living animauls, swhich proved completely suc
cessttull y."
P'rofessor Dunglison, of~ the Jeiferson College
Philadelphia, itt his great svork ont Huant Phty
s-iology, devotes more than fifty pages to atn ex
amtination of this sutbject. I Its experitwents
wit Ix Dr. Beautnont, on the Gastrie Juice oh
tained fromt the living hiumatt stomsach, and
fromt atnmals, tare well known. "In cases."
lie says, "digestiotn occurred as perfetdy in the
artili-.ial as Its the natturtl digestiorts."
Dr.Johni WV. IDraper, Professor of Chemudstry,
in tho MJedical College of the University of
New York, ini his *Text Book of Chemistry,"
paige 386, satys, : " It lhas been a qtuestioni whte
ther art iticial digestion coubll be performned-bzt
it is nuw utniversailly admitted that it may be."
Dr. Calrptenter's standard work ott Physifology,
which is itt the library of every phyicsan, and
is used as a Tfext Book in all the Colleges, is
full of evidetnce simuilar to the above, re
5pecuntg the remtarkablo Digestive power of Pep
sitn, and the fact that it noay be readl.ily separa
ted frott the stotmach of the calf or Ox, and used
for experimtetnts .in Artilictal Digestion, or as a

AS A 1J'Sli1kPSA CURER,
Dr. hloughton's Pueraar has produced .tite
most manrvellotus ellects, in curing cases of Do
bility, Etmaciatiotn, Nervous Declimeo, and Dys
peptic Constumptiont. It is impossible to give
the details of cases in the limits of this adver
tisemient; but tiuthienticated certificates have
beetn given of nmore thatn T1woJLundred Resmark
able Cures, mt P'hiladelpthia, New York, and
iloston alotne. Theisie were nearly till desperate
cases, and the cures were not only rtapid atti
wotnderfutl, bitt permtanient.
It is at great Nervoins Atntidote, and particular

of Qitunte, Alercury, andu other drugs upot tdae
Diigestive Oirgatns, tiller a long sickness. Alsus,
for excess ini eating, attd the too free use of ar
dent spitits. It .oalmost reconciles Health with
J1utemperatnce.
OLl) ST1OMACII COMPLAINTS.
'lThere is ito fortn of Old Stomach Comuplalis
.w hichi it does tnt seemt to reach and remove at
onice. Not tmatter how lad they itnay be, it gives
instantt relief! A .aingle dose remoQves all the
unpleasoa symptoms; and it ontly needs to be
repeated for a short timte to make these good
ellicts piertmanent. Purity of Blood and Vigor
of Bondy follow at once. It is particutlar excel

Sorentess of the pit of the Stomtach, distress afte~r
