His son Samuel was standing by his side, and while he was holding his father's hand, his father spoke to him as follows: "Sammy, I am dying-at the age of fifty-five. I wish you to pay strict at tention to my dying advice." s, Father, I will." ' And I wish you to follow my ad vice after I am dead." I will, father." ' Sammy. the neighbors and all my friends tell me I haven't an enemy in the world, and I believe I haven't. I want you to understand why I haven't. It is all owing to policy. Sam: policy, and nothing shorter. When I was of your age, my boy, I was as poor as an old village horse, turned out to die. Age has at last broken me down, but I aint poor, thank policy ! Follow my ex ample, and you will become a far rich er man than your father, Sammy, and die without an enemy, as I do." Samuel Smirk wept, as in duty bound. But grief and his handkerchief choked his utterance, and so he said nothing. " It has always been my policy," re suined the dying Smirk, ' to avoid giving offence to any one. No matter what people said to me. or any one else, right or wrong-- have always endeavored to forbear and submit, wherever I could: to be calm and cau tious, on all occasions, and to avoid the exhibition of any sign of resentment. By long experience in this I have found that by persevering to agree with everybody, seeming, and to flatter eve rybody, is a sure eventual guide to uni versal popularity." " But have you never had any diffi culty with any one ?" "Not since I was twenty-one," said the dying man, gasping for breath. "Reach me a little water and wet my lips. They are too parched for me to speak plain. There-there, [he added. as his son obeyed him] that will do, and you shall be initiated into my in variable policy. Be deferential, Sam, deferential and control your temper, and flatter, wherever you get a chance, have a bow, a smile, and a word, and a shake of the hand for everybody mark! for everybody, and then you will get along." "But I mnsn't be friendly to villains, must I?" "Friendly! Hump ! Be friendly to nobody; only seem so. Villains! they compose two-thirds of the community, and they are the most influential. As for the other third, though it is well enough to keep their good opinion, they are only subordinate agents in the building up of a man. But don't get affronted with them! Oh no, Sam never do that. Never kick a dog, un less you are sure be hasn't any owner, then kick away if you like !" Though his father was dying, Samuel could not help smiling at this language. "That's right," said the elder Smirk, "like that; smile again, Sam; smile again. By smiling I have gained ma ny a friend. But be careful you don't smile at the wrong time. A smile is a powerful weapon, but it most be used with judgment." " Do you know, Sam, why I was al ways such a favorite with the women ?" "No, father." "I was always careful, in the firstl place, to feel my way with the women; took eare to understand their charac ters, their sentiments, their particularl vahities and hobbies; keeping my own ideas in the back ground, till I could coincide with theirs. I always took care never to speak disrespectful of the sex. I never, in the presence of a woman, called a woman ' woman,' or a 'female.' I had but one name-ladies -for all the feminine gender." "How did you do when they differed and asked your opinion !" "I would agree with one, and at the same time wink at the other slily, as tosay, ' It's all humbug, what I am say ing.' If a woman was ugly, I'd praise her intellect. If she didn't know any thing, I'd praise her virtue. In this way I seldom missed my mark; for it is very seldom you find a woman that is ugly, immoral, and a fool in the bar gain. In fact it is hard work to find anybodywho hasn't some good point, or who isa't susceptible to flattery in some way or other; and a man must be an ass, who, if determined to flatter, and make his flattery acceptabler can't seise holdf some merit, in mind, in heart, fotr: or face of the person he wishes to please and feigning to admire it makes that person friendly." "Mast I be liberal or stingy ?" "Ob, be liberal! be liberal, by alt means," said the dying man, with a ghastl smile-"that is--in sentiment. Whenever a generous deed is done, ex alt it to the skies. Always praise gen erous people. Clap yeorands for phi. lanthropy, and thee clap them in your pocket and keep them there." " Suppmose a bgg ass alms of me, or I am ealled e to subscribe to some charitable objeet." S"If any.rsoi begs, say' Certainly my poor woman,' or ' my man,' or.' mi' poor child,' and then quickly fool in your peckets Yeo will find no money of course, but you must say with a sigh and ltear in your eye, if you can scare one =a 'I am really ashamed to say it, but unafortaately 1 hava't a cent about me.' If you don't get a 'God bless vo' for that, I'm mistaken. I never oonud it to fail." "But a 0bscctipfl6n'' ' "Roead the paper, praise the oa t, but ay that you have 'just sbserabed mea than you could afford for auether objet of a similar natere. If. the ap plicant believes, by this, that you are n ebs charitable line, ho will let you of whereas, if you refused, ont ant oat, without an explanation, he might se y behind your l . I have meysel great reputation for be a",i merely by refusing to sub -ri ih .tis way. This is a queer wenrk Sam?' SrU teeld a ntlleman was asimed wit viio ent It of coshing, which R neOk bhig out of , hia peer r e.. Sfader, that dill* se-ndk -wlfatal. to yea,said Samuel. oa t. no." resumed his father, "I am dntateaied not to die till I get through. As I was saying, Sammy, this is a queer old world, and you can't get along in it without religion." " Without what ." exclaimed his son in amazement. He had never heard him mention religion before in his life. " Without religion. Hire a pew by all means. Talk religion occasionally -you can soon get the hang of it. Profess- and practice when you're obhge to. But at any rate, profess; it helps a fellow along in business. I got some of my most profitable customers and best friends by professing religion. Pew.rent is no object when you come to think of that." " But if you belong to a church you will have to defend its .doctrines; and religions controversies .reate enmity, don't they ?" " Sometimes. But whenever I found that I was tetting into trouble on ac count of religion, I was always careful to yield a point or two, smile in a chris. tian like way, and then back out of the scrape. That's the way to do it." "It is best, I suppose to be some kind of a politician ?" inquired his son. "By all means; but take care and always be on the strongest side. You can, although rabid as a mad (log in your views, when nobody but your side is present, atlect to be very liberal in your sentiments, when you talk with those of an opposite political creed. Mankind love a liberal man: and if you flatter your foes you disarm them. "There's a good deal in that," ob served Sammy, musingly, reflecting upon the'many existing instances of its truth. " That there is," responded the sick man, nearly exhausted, and his lips as pale as ashes. " Double dealing, done well, will fix the flints of everybody. When I lived in Squealbury-a hoggish set there, Sam-1 was a great gun. I was a general favorite, owing to my management-and I had money. They were going to build a Town House. There were two parties, each favoring a different site. They sent committees to ask my opinion. As the parties were about equal in number and influ ence, I hesitated at first which to fa vnr. "And how did you overcome the difficulty ?" " I told the committee that if they would call a meeting of both parties, I would give them my opinion. That meeting was called and I went. ' Smirk Smirk! Smirk !' they all cried. I arose, and after complimenting the rowdies generally, the town, its character, and so forth, disclaimed my right, either to the distinguished honor conferred upon me, or to deliver an opinion on the sub ject. I was a native of Squealbury, I said. and no meddler. I would not ex press any preference and opinion. I had confidence that the intelihgence of the Squealberrians would enable them to choose for themselves, and with great affected modesty I bowed and withdrew in the midst of cheers from both parties." "That was well done, father!" said Sam. admiringly; and was that the reason you were elected to the Legis lature I" " Yes," said the senior Smirk, faintly; "I made a hit. My noble-mindedness became proverbial. I was compared to Cincinnatus and Gen. Washington, put up for Representative and elected by both parties. Do as I did, Sam, and you'll prosper-Oh !" "God bless you my dear father! what's the matter ': " I'm going. Sam ! I shall be off in a minute! Call in the minister and the other bores quick! but remember policy, Sam, poPl" And with the unfinished word, which had been his guiding star through life, upon his lips, the lion. Simon Smirk expired. Intelligence of his death was tele graphed all over the Union, and a great many editorial obituaries were written upon him, ending with "None knew thee but to love thee, Nor named thee but to praise !"

HOOFLAND'S CELEBRATED GERMAN BITTERS, PREPARED BY DR. C. M. JACKSON, Vo. 120 Arch Street, Philadelylhia. Their power over the above diseases is not ex celled, if equalled, by any other preparation in the United States, as the cures attest, in many cases after skilful physicians had failed. These Bitters are worthy the attention of in valids. Possessing great virtues in the rectitica tion of diseases of the Liver and lesser glands, exercising the most searching powers in weak ness and atfections of the digestive organs, they are, withal, safe, certain and pleasant. Read and be Convinced ! The Philadelphia Saturday Gazette says of Dr. Hoolland's GermanI B:ttrs : " It is seldom that we reco:mmend what are termed Patent Medicines to the confidence and patronage of our readers, and therefore when we reconuitend Dr. Holland's German Bitters, we wish it to be distinctly understood that we are not speaking, of the nostrains of the day, that are noised about for a brief period and then for. gotten, after they have done their guilty race of misclhief, but of a medicine long established, universalhy prized, and which has met the hearty approval of the faculty itself" Scott's Weekly .of the 2-th August, says: " Dr. Hootland's (Merman Bitters, manufac tured by l)r. Jackson, are now recoummended by some of the most prominent members of the faculty as an article of much etficacy in cases of fietale weakness. Persons of debilitated con stitutions will find these Bitters advantageous to their health, as we know from experience the salutary effect they have upon weak systems.' M3ORE hL' IDENCE. J. G. Moore. Esq., of the Daily news, in his issue of October 31st, says: " Dr. HIoft. rnd's German Bitt es.-We are trying this renowned medicine for a stubborn disease of the bowels, and can with truth testify to its efficacyv. We have taken the contents of two bottles, and we have derived more benefit from the experiment than we derived previously from years of allopathie treatment at the hands of our first physicians." Hon. C. D. HIineline, Mayor of the city of Camden, N. J., says: " IL/? ud',s German llitpers.-We have seen mixny Ilattering notices of this medicine, and the source fronm which they came induced us to make inquiry respecting its merits. From inquiry we were perstuaded to use it, and tiulst say we found it specific in its action upon dis eases of the liver and digestive organs, and the powerful intlusence it exerts upon nervous pros tration, is really surprising. It calms and strengthens the nerves, bringing them into a state of repose, making sleep refreshing. If this medicire was more generally used, we are satistied there would be less sickness, as from the stomnach, liver and nervous system, the great majority of real and imaginary diseases emanate. Have them in a healthy condition and you can bid defiance to epidemtics generally. This extra ordinary medici we we would advise our friends who are at all indisposed, to give a trial-it will recommend itself. It should, in fact, be in every family. No other medicine can produce such evidences of merit."

OF all the numerous medicines extant, (and some of them valuable) for the cure of pul monary complaints, nothing has ever been found which could compare in its effects with this pre paration. Others cure sometimes, but at all times and in all diseases of the lungs and throat where medicine can give relief, this will do it. It is pleasant to take, and perfectly safe in accor dance with the directions. We do not advertise for the information of those who have tried it, but those who have sot. Families that have known its value will sot be without it, and by its timely ase they are secure from the dangerous conse quences of Coughs and Colds, which, neglected, ripen into fatal consumption. The Diploma of the Massachusetts Institute was awarded to this preparation by the Board ao Judges in September, 1847; also, the Medals of the three great Institutes of Art, in this country; also, the Diploma of the Ohio Institute at Cin cinnati, has been given to the Cherry Pectoral, by their Government in consideration of its ex traordinary excellence and ubefulness in caring affections of the Lungs and Throat. Read the following opinion founded on the long experience of the eminent Physician of the Port and City of ST. JOHnS. May 8, 1851. Dr. J. C. Ayer-Five years trial of your Cher ry Pectoral in my practice has proven what I foresaw from its composition, most be true, that it eradicates and cures the colds and coughs to which we in this section are peculiarly liable. I think its equal has not yet been discovered, nor do I know how a better remedy can be made for the distempers of the Throat and Lungs. J. J. BURTON, M. D., F. R. S. See what it has done on a wasted constitution not only in the following cases, but a thousand more: StrtDYY, Jan. 20, 1851. Dr. Ayer-In the month of July last I was attacked by a violent diarrhoea in the mines of California. I returned to San Francisco in hope of receiving benefit from a change of climate and diet. My diarrhma ceased, but it was followed by a severe cough-and much soreness. I finally started for home, but received no benefit from the voyage. My cough continued to grow worse, and when I arrived in New York, I was at once marked by my acquaintanees as a victim of consumption. I must confess that I saw n.esf ieAt reason to doubt what my friends all be lieved. At this time I commenced taking your truly invaluable medicine with little expectation ofderiving any benefit from its use. You would PATEN'T MEDICINE not receive these lines did I not regard it ny ditty to state to the afflicted, through you. that my health, in the space of eight months, is fully re stored. I attribute it to the use of your Cherry P'ectral. Yours truly, WMI. W. SMITH. 1Vs0tl.-rrN, P'a., April 12?.
