An inquest was held lately on the body of a young man who, in the attempt to snatch a kiss from the unwilling lips of a girl, fell down stairs and killed himself. Not a great while since a young lady broke her neck in trying to escape a kiss. The question now is, shall kissing be considered a dangerous amusement? nti officer, who was inspecting his company one morning, spied one private whose shirt was sadly begrimed. Patrick O'Flynn ! " called out the cap tain. "Here, yer honor!'' promptly res ponded I'airick, with his hand to his eap. "How long do yon wear a shirt? " thundered the officer. " Trcenty-cigM inches,'' was the rejoinder. A PrzzLF.n Justice. A man named Josh, was brought before a country squire for stealing a hog, and three wit nesses being examined swore they saw hint steal it. A wag having volunteered as counsel for Josh, knowing the scope of the squire's brain, arose and address ed him as follows: "May it please your honor, I can es tablish this man's honesty beyond the shadow of a doubt, for I have twelve witnesses to swear they did net. see him steal it" The squire rested his head for a few moments on his hand, as if in deep thought, and with great dignity arose, and brushing back his hair said: "If there are twelve men who didn't see him steal it, and only three who did, I discharge the prisoner." A Mobile Market Scene. The Mobile Tribune furnishes the fol lowing, and it shows to what a condition the laboring class are reduced in the South: The market continues to be abundantly supplied with every variety of vegetables raised at this season of the year, plenty of good beef and mutton, fish, &c. Speaking of fish, we heard of a scene that is said to have pecurred in the fish market a short time since. It was told to us about as follows : One of the con- ! script officers learning that there were several of the fishermen subject to the j niilitarv laws, on the followins Saturday ' sir 'weuraWhnyryio vended crabs." In ! a few minutes a lady stepped up and : asked the price, when the TOUe Dieo-o ' remarked " Two dollars a dozen, marm." My gracious, it isn't possible you ask two dollars for one dozen crabs?" " You no lika, you no take; you no j want to buya, go away; la no want youa t money; it is no mora two dimes three i years ago." The lady became disgusted and left. Several other purchasers came up and j they were treated in the same uncivil maimer. Finally the conscript officer, who heard all the conversation, stepped op mod asked "Do you belong to the service, sir?" The Diego knew him and his business 1 at once, so he attempted to evade the in quiry by replying "1 no cara for a fewa fisha. You want him, taka him for one dollar and six bitts." "I don't want your fish, I asked if you was attached to any military company?" "You wanta de fish, take de fish for a dollar and a half" arp'inSwIJ'nnroknw whetheryu "Well taka dis buncha for yourself. I po cara for a buncha of fish: taka ile usha: taka as much as vou wanta for nothing;" and attempted to escape, but it was no go. He was then taken nn tr ! the Provost Marshal's office to state his exemption or take his place in the ranks to defend the country that has furnished mm with food and protection for years past NOTICE.

JOHN BULL'S COMPOUND CEDRON BITTEKS, The Latost and Host Important Dis covery of the 19th Cental?. XTO MAN'S NAME IS MORE INTIMATELY : l connected with the history of the Materia ! Medica of the United States, or more lavorably I known as a pioneer in medical discovery, than that of Dr. JOHN BULL, of Louisville, Ky. His inimitable oreuaration of Sars.iparilla has long stood at the h ad of the various compounds of that valuable drug. His Compound Pfctoral or Witt Chekbt has become a household word throughout the West and South ; and his Worm Lozenges, in less than a year after their introduction, attained a reputation as wide-spread as the continent of North America. But the erowniug glory of his lift remainB to 6e attained in hiB latest discovery, , or rather combination ; for he does not claim to j have been the discoverer of CEDRON, which is the basis of the bitters now ofiered to the public. That honor belongs to the native inhabitants of ; Central America, to whom itSTirtues have been known for more than two hundred years. Armed with it, toe Indiau bids defiance to the most dead ly malaria, and haudles without fear the meat venemous serpents. It is a belief with them that ! while there i breath left in the body, the Oedron j is potent to cure, no matter what the disease may ; be. While Dr. Bull is not prepared to indorse this extravagant pretension, he is nevertheless satis fied from a thorough examination of the evidence relative to its virtues, that as a remedy and pre ventative for all diseases arising from exi".ue, either to changes of weather and climate, or to the miasmatic influences, it stands witliou: a rival aud justly deserves the reputation it hosso long enjoyed in Central America and the West Indies. In DYSPEPSIA, And its attendant train of symptoms, its acts more like a charm than a mediciue. There is nothing in the whole range of the Materia Medica, that for a moment bear a comparison w ith it in this disease. A full account of this wonderful plant may be found in the 11th edition of the U. 8. Disjienea tory, pages 1387 and 1388. A series of experiments in which Dr. Bull has been for years engaged, has just been brought to a successful termination aud he is now enabled to offer to the public a combination of Ceilron wltn other approved tonics, the whole preserved in the best quality of copper- distilled Bourbon whisky, which he is congdent has no equal in the world. lie might furnish a volume of certificates, but 'fc public have long since learned to estimate '"c" things at their true value. The safest plan for every ono to test for himself the virtues of m. w medicine. Give Oetlron Bitters, Our trial and you will never use any others.
