The Kidneys are two in number, situated
at the upper part of the loin, surrounded by
fat, and consisting of three parts, viz : the
Anterior, the Interior, and the fcxterior.
' The anterior absorbs. Interior consists of
tissues or veins, which serve as a deposit fcr
the urine and convey it to the exterior. The
exterior is a conductor also, terminating in a
tingle tube, and called the uterus. The ute
rus are connected with the bladder.
The bladder is composed of various cover
ings or tissues, divided into parts, viz : the
tipper, the Lower, the Nervous, and the Mu
cous. I he upper expels, the lower retains.
Many have a desire to urinate without the
ability ; others urinate without the ability to
retain. This frequently occurs in children.
To cure theie affections, we must bring in
to action the muscels, which are engaged in
their various functions. If the v are neglect
ed, Grave! or Dropsy may ensue.
The reader must also be made aware, that
however slight maybe the attack, it is sure to
affect the bodily health and mental powers,
as our nesh and blood are supported irom
these sources.

Pain occuring in the loins is indicative of
the above diseases. They occur in persons
disposed to ecid stomach and chalky concre
The Gravel.
The gravel ensues from neglect or improp
er treatment ot the kidneys. These organs
being weak, the water is not expelled from
the bladder, but allowed to remain ; it be
comes feverish, and sediment forms. It is
from this deposit that the stone is formed,
and gravel ensues.

n.T. Helmbold, Druggist :

ward ol twenty years, with gravel, bladder,
and kidney affections, during which time I
have used various medicinal preparations,
and been uuder the treatment of the most
eminent Physicians, experiencing but little
Having seen your preparations extensively
advertised, I consulted with my family phys
ician in regaid to using your Extract Buchu.
1 did this because I had used all kinds of
advertised remedies, and had found them
worthless, and, some quite injurious , in fact,
I despaired of ever getting well, and determ
ined to use no remedies hereafter unless I
knew of the ingredients. It was this that
prompted me to use your remedy. As you
advertised that it was composed of buchn,
eubebs, and juniper berries, it occurred to me
and my physician as an excellent combina
tion, and, with his advice, after an examina
tion of the article, and consulting again with
the druggist, I concluded to try it. I com
menced it) use abont eight months ago, at
which time I was confined to my room. From
the first bottle I was astonished and gratified
at the beneficial effect, and after using it t iree
weeks, was able to walk out. I felt much like
writing you a full statement of my case at
that time, but thought my improvement
might only be temporary, and therefore con
cluded to defer and ee if it would effect a
perfect cure, knowing then it would be of
greater value to you, and more satisfactory
to me.
Iam now able to report that a cure is effec
ted after using the remedy for fife months.
I hare not uaed any now for three months,
and feel as well in all respects as I ever did.

Hoofland's German Bitters.
Is different from alt others. It is composed
of the pure juices or vital principle of
Roots, Herbs and Barks (or as medicinally
termed, extracts), the worthless or inert por
tions of the ingredients not being used.
Therefore, in one bottle of this Hitters there
is contained as much medicinal virtue as will
be found in several gallons of ordinary mix
tures. The Roots, Ac, used in this Bitters
are grown in Germany, their vital principles
extracted in that country by a scientific
Chemist and forwarded to the manufactory in
this city, where they are compounded and
bottled, ioutaimng no spirituous ingredi
ents, this Bitters is free from the objections
urged against an others ; no desue lor stim

any circumstances, have any but a beneficial
Hoofland's German Tonic
Was compounded for those not inclined to
extreme bitters, and is intended for use in
cases when some alcoholic stimulant is re
quired in connection with the Tonic proper
ties of the Bitters. Each bottle of the Tonic
contains one bottle of the Bitters, combined
with pure Santa Crcz Rum, and flavored in
such a manner that the extreme bitterness of
the Bitters is overcome, forming a prepara
tion highly agreeable and pleasant to the pal
ate, and containing the medicinal virtues of
the Bitters. The price of the Tonic is $1.50
per bottle, which many persons think too
high. They must take into consideration that
the stimulant used is guaranteed to be of a
pure quality. A poor article could be fur
nished at a cheaper price, but is it not better
to pay a little more and have a good article?
A medicinal preparation should contain none
but the best ingredients, and they who ex
pect to obtain a cheap compound will most
certainly be cheated

It is not necessary to take a handful ot

itself. Its peculiar action is upon the Liver,
cleansing it speedily from all obstructions,

the injurious results attached to the use of
that mineral.

"If Congress does justice, Good
ing will be admitted to bis seat."
Richmond Dem. Herald.
Just so. Strongly and decided
ly as we are attached to oar party
and to its principles, we can bat
re-echo the Herald's judgment.
Nor can we imagine how any sane
person, after baying witnessed the
marked ability, the transcendent
intellect, the protound learning, the
versatile cenius. the more than
commendable zeal, the legal acu
men, the keen discrimination, the
amazing tact, the elegance of man
ners, the refinement of grace, and
tbe admirable magnanimity with
which he conducted the case, but
more especially, during thelast
day and night of the examination
of witnesses, could possibly arrive
at any othei conclusion!
We are confirmed in our opinion
when we call to mind the eloquent,
pathetic, argumentative, classical,
beautifully composed, highly gram
matical, ornamental, exuberant and
gushing appeal to Judge Wildon,
made by the Hon. D. S. Gooding,
most piteously imploring the for
me' after he had received the
certificate, and after the patriotic
superserviceable revising commit
tee, had re-examined, re handled
and re-counted the tickets to re
sign and recanvass the district
The cool selfishness, the unpa
triotic hardihood, and the unblush
ing effrontery with which Mr. Wil
son repelled the generous offer
contained in the appeal at once
stigmatize him as unworthy the
confidence of a generous constitu
ency !
The high handed and illegal pro
cedure of Judge Wilson, in contin
uing the examination of a witness,
after 11 p m., when Mr. Gooding
had voluntarily waived the hour of
adjournment (10 p. m.,) in order
to show that Mr. D. P. Holloway,
and Mr. John Lynch had a legal
right to vote in Richmond, is sim
ply preposterous, and the commit
tee of Congress will doubtless re
ject this portion of the record.
What if these gentlemen have
never voted any where else, have
they not voluntarily ostracised
themselves from the folds of civil
ization by going to Washington,
and thus placed themselves where
they have no rights that "the white
man's party" are bound to respect?
For the benefit of such persons
as may not enjoy the happiness
and the pleasure of an acquaint
ance with the distinguished the
learned and the eloquent Mr.
Gooding we are induced to at
tempt a sketch of some of his ex
cellencies. But as we feel our ut
ter inability to do him justice, we
may be pardoned for calling in
requisition the aid of that delinea
tor of man, the immoital bard of
.dron :
'See what a grace was seated ou his brew:
Hyperion's curls, the front of Jove himself.
An eye like Mars, to threaten and command;
A station like the herald, Mercury,
Xew-lifhted on a beaven-kissing hill ;
A combination and a form, indeed,
Where every God did seem to set bis seal,
To give the world assurance of a man."
Ar.d then with what graceful
mijosty, and awe inspiring mien,
willi what impressive dignitj, and
w i.dei exciting sublimity, w uld
he ' ddress the ssstmblfri windom
of tli iistii n How forcibly he
would lftnibd one of t lie Golden
Agcol American Oratory, and viv
idly rt call to min i the scenes of
the triumphs of the impassioned
eloquence of Clay, in his palmiest
days. In imagination we ran al
most drink in the dulcet strains,
and heaven-enroptnred accents of
the4 gifted orator, equalling in ef
fect the music of the fabled Or
phens, when flowing streams stood
still, and cloud-capped mountains
bowed their heads, entranced with
the enchanting melody of his harp!
With what burning eloquence, he
would pour out "thoughts that
breathe and words that burn," snr
passing in convincing force the
happiest efforts of the great De
mosthenes, wheu he held his audi
tors spell bound by the more than
Hybla sweetness of his voice !
"He speaks, and attention watches his lip,
He reasons, and conviction closes his pe
riods." r
And what if the Hon. gentleman
an M. C. in expectancy,
"Has been every thing by turns and nothing
Wise men often change fools
'Tis most true, that during the
late war of the Southern Democratic
Rebelion, his clarion voice rang
out in dire vengeance threatening
to the copperheads opposed to the
chastising of the rebels. How viv
idly we remember the fearful an
athemas hurled at the tall "syca
more of the Wabash" and his affll
Utors, giving notice fiat were he
in military command in the State,
he would make summary work
with them would hang them
gently perforate their vitals and
otherwise extinguish their light.
Had this valorous Sancho Pansa
bsen clothed with a little brief au
thority, he would doubtless have
paid his respects to the Hon. Dan
iel, and may-hap to the editor of
the "Herald."
There is scarcely a question but
that in some lucid interval, he
would have arraigned, tried by
drum bead court martial, condemn
ed and executed them. We almost
shudder at the bare contemplation
of the scene. Just to think D. W.
V. and the editor of the "Herald,"
standing at the place of execution,
in the presence of the Hon. D. S.
Gooding, one of Lincoln's minions:
Gooding (to the prisoners)
Have you any thing to say ?
Voorhees "Farewell, a long
farewell to all my greatness !"
"This is the state of man; to-day he puts forth
The tender leaves, to-morrow blossoms.
And bears his blujhing honors thick upon
Tbe third day comes a killing frost;
And, when he thinks, giod easy man, full
His greatness is ripening nips his root,
And then be falls, as I do
Had I but served my country with hal f thr zeal
l ve served my party, I would not now
Be left naked to mr enemies."
Editor Herald (to Daniel)
Peace ! Peace ! Let's die like
men. Farewell vain world, with
all its pomp and glory. Farewell !
The drop falls and with it two
lights of resurrected Democracy.
"See by what n slender thread hang everlast
ing things."
Herein we witness not only the
gratitude of the Editor of the Her
ald, but also do we behold as well,
the capacious head of the eloquent
Mr. Gooding, and besides his great
and magnanimous, forgiving heart.
Hence we join with the Herald,
in saying by all means let him be
admitted to his seat in congress,
lor which his ignominious oppo
nent holds the certificate in vio
lation of outraged democracy and
further, as a warning to all such
ballot-box sf Ters as Judge Wil
son, let Congress declare by solemn
resolution that all persons hereaf-
ter presenting credentials for ad
mission, before a self-constituted
democratic committee have had
time to overhaul and recount the
tickets shall be forever rendered
ineligible to a seat in Congress !

Once a trap was baited
With a piece of cheese ;
It tickled so a little mouse
It almost made him sneeze ;
An old rat said, "There's danger,
Be careful where you go 1"
"Nonsence I" said the other,
"I don't think you know I '
So he walked in boldly
Nobody in sight ;
First he tookanoble,
Then he took a bite ;
Close the trap ;ogether
Snapped as quick as wink,
Catching mousey fast there,
'Cause he din't think.
Onee a little turkey,
Fond of her own way.
Wouldn't ask tbe old ones
Where to go or star ;
She said, "I m not a baby,
Here I am half-grown ;
Surely 1 am big enough
To run about alone 1''
Off she went, but somebody
Hiding saw her pass ;
Soon like snow her feathers
Covered a II the grass.
So she ma Je a supper
For a sly young mink,
'Cause she was so headstrong
That she wouldn't think.
Once there was a robin
Lived ontside the dnor,
Who wanted lo go inside
And hop upon the floor.
"Oh, no," said the mother,
"You must stay with me;
Little birds are safest
Sitting in a tree."
"I don't care," said robin,
And gave his tail a fling,
"I don't think the old folks
Know quite everything."
Down he flew, and Kitty seised his
Before he'd time to blink.
'Oh," he cried, "I'm sorry,
But I didn't think."
Now, my little children,
You who read this song.
Don't yon see what trouble
Comes of thinking wrong T ,
And can't you take a warning
From their dreadful fate,
Who began their thinking
When it ivas too late ?
Don't think there's always safety
Where no danger shows,
Don't suppose you know more
Than anybody knows :
But when you're warned of ruin,
Pause upon the brink,
And don't go under headlong,
'Cause you didn't think.

We have been thinking. Do you,
good friend, ever think? Do you
ever pausejin your race for wealth,
position, or dissipation, to let the
gooJ spirits, who are with us ev
er, tell us what they would, and
suggest the heaven-born thoughts
which make us better as we stop
to listen, then remember and adopt.
We have been thinking of the past
year. It has been one of trial, of
joy, of sorrow, of happiness and
of struggling. We have done ma
ny things we would were blotted
from the record, and if any one
who reads has not, let that person
censure! We have made a few
persons happier; have wronged no
one; have not swerved from . that
we believed and believe to be right.

We have erred in judgment, as all
do at times; have not spoken a
many kind words as we mighty
have not done all the good we
might have done, and would have
the charge of onmuon erased.
But this cannot be! So we will
strive . the more earnestly to do
better the year to come, the better
to be ready for the year of the
eternal, when oar real life our
real happiness will begin, never
to end. ,
Just before nightfall a bright-,
faced young man called at our pri
vate room, where none can enter
except invited. He was a stran
ger. We never had seen him be
fore. He warmed by the cheerful
fire and said: . .
'Pardon this intrusion. They
told me at your business office
that I might find you here, so 1
came. Will you please accept this
little present a plain gold pen, as
a New Year's gift, from one who
has read one of your Saturday
Night chapters, till every line and
word is committed to memory, and
which chapter is my faith, my hope
and my guide.'
'Thank you, my young friend.
If tbe present is one you can af
ford to make, we will accept it as
a memento, and to use in writing
other chapters. Where do you re
side?' 'In Paterson.
'What business are you engaged
in?' .
'I but yesterday finished my ap
prenticeship in a machine-shop,
where, rail-road locomotives aro
'Just finished your schooling?'
A UV, Oil .
'And are going to work with the
New Year?' . .
Yes, sir to work as a journey
man.' Do you feel glad?'
'Yea, sir.'
'Did the time seem long while
you were learning the trade?'
'Not very I had so much to
learn and wanted to be a good
workman.' -
'What will you do in the future?'
'Work in the shop till I can ob
tain a better situation, or work op
to a foremanship. And I will try
real hard to do well will , save
what I earn, and in a few years
have a nice little home, perhaps,
or will have enough ahead to go in
with somebody in a new shop.'
'You will succeed if you wish to.
The future rests with yourself.
You can be a man or a loafer a
success or a railure. Ana what
you are here, you will be in the
Eternal; a worker, planner and
uggestor as you strive on earth.
So I believe, and my life will
attest my earnestness. Good even
Good evening and good for-
He went his way. Hours since.
Before us ia the pen he left us. A
plain, pure gold pen. When comes
the New Year we may write with
it, but not till this one, which so
long has been a willing servant,
shall be used up. But it has its
history as every little article we
can rest the eye upon has as wo
all have.
O! The histories! Who but God
knows them all?
The pen with which we now
write the little gold band on our
finger the clean glass inkstand
before us that beautiful paper
weight those beautiful bronze or
naments on our desk that little
crooked pin on the floor every
thing has its history, in itself and
in connection with something else.
Some day we will write our his
tory for a few friends to read. Not
for all, for not all can appreciate
motives. Not all care to know
when they have histories of their
Thinkuig! The week has gone.
A new morn has come. Our young
friend who called is not here. The
pen he left is before us, ready for
work, as he is ready.
He said he was ready to begin
lifo. Then he will succeed. And
we, too, are ready.
The New Year is upon ns.
There is work to do. We enter
upon it earnestly, with no fear as
to results or of the future. Joys
may or may not come we will
work on the same. Misery, sor
row, agony, trouble, sickness, mis
fortune may come. Well let them.
Others are thus visited, and live.
We will try to avoid them to so
live as to escape more than comes
to us from acts of others. Then
we shall hare no remorse, or regret
for act of. our own butwill each,
day grow stronger inv wldofogV

passed4 from an apprentice to the
freedom of the workshop. Ho can
now instruct others and suggest to
those who are trying to reach a
position he is fitted to enter upon.
No more an apprentice but ever ai
tudeut. . '
We, too, are ready to enter up
on tbe new year and Us duties. f
This may be our last.Saturday
Nijht. . But for those we love, we
wish it were. The rough tools of
the apprentice have been used we
are ready to enter another room to
continue labor at any time. Till
we are called we shall work here
more and more earnestly. Per
haps those we love will be ready
to enter upon the new year of cx
istence with us. That will be
happiness, for it is not so pleas
ant lo'woik alone! '
Sometimes, as to-night, we can
bear the workmen in the grand
workroom beyond our apprentice-
nhipf Sometimes they come and
tell us all about what they are do
ing, and what for, and who for.
Sometimes they come, or one comes
from their number, and tell U9 that
all we write is read Over There as
here that sometimes we write
words which are read by those whe
have gone before,' and they look
sad till they read the better ones,
which are more ' from the heart
than the head the only ones that
have weight in the beautiful Eter
nal." ' ' "',,','.
But this much we know. The re
is an apprenticeship here, there is
a great workshop there. All those
great inventions are'planned there
suggested to us here, and thus
we work with those who work with
us, though often we know it not.
We do not create thoughts. God
alone is the creator. If wc pause
in our work or writing to think or
and within ourselves, we cannot
think. We must keep step to pro
gress. It will be glorious working
there. Eternity, is no resort for
idlers. There will be other duties
than singing hymns aud walking
in processions. Each of us will
live, and work, and be made use
ful in the new year to the new life.
There will be no prison-pen of fire
to consume in spite, in the grand
work-room of the. Eternal.
Our friend is confident that with
the new week and the New Year
he will enter upon a new life, lie
has been told 60. ; His reason tells
him so. The "work there Is u bo
tells him so. ' -
So shall we all work Over There.
The poor beggar whose, heart i9
good will be at work therewhile
the rich person whose heart is not
good will be taught and schooled
till it i9. We all shall be busy in
the industrious future. We sliall
go as on the wings of the win I ,
with plans, thoughts, ideas, aug
gestions, inventions with love,
mercy, forgiveness, humiliation,
and lessons the religion of Christ
more than of man, till in time the
world will be better, and the mil
lions of worlds God has, as be ha s
thid, shall be better, and better,
and better, and better, as we shall
earnestly strive to be from this
blessed Saturday Night. 'Brick'
