SEASONS FOR LOVING.
BY W. C. BBYAST,
Dost thou idly nsk to hear
At what gentle seasons
Nymphs relent, when lovers near
Preo the tenderest reasons?
Ah, they g've their faith loo oft
To the cureless wooer;
Maidens' hearts are always soft,'
Would that men's were truer !
Woo the fair one, when around
Early birds are singing;
When o'er the flagrant ground
Early floweis are springing:
When iho brookside, bank, nnd grovo,
All with blossoms ladon,
Shine with beauty, brcaiho of love,
Woo the timid maiden.
Woo her, when, with rosy blu-h,
Summer eve is sinking.
When on rills that softly gush,
Stars are softly twinkling;
When through boughs that knit the bow'r,
Moonlight gleams are stealing;
Woo her, till the gentle hour
Wakes a gentler feeling.
Woo her when autumnal dyes
Tinge the woody mountain;
When the drooping foliage lies,
In the half-choked fountain;
Lcf the scene that tells how fast
Youth is parsing over,
Warn her, ere her bloom is past,
To secure her Lover.
Woo her when the north windscoll
At the lattice nightly;
When, within the cheerful hall,
Blaze the faggots brightly;
While the wintry tempest round
Sweeps the landscape hoary,
Sweeter in her ear shall sound
Love's delightful story.
God shield the poor and needy,
From winter's cruel reign,
For who will else protect them,
Now frosts have come again !
Oh ye, who dwell in splendor, '
Have every wish allayed,
Heed to the voices praying,
For succor and for aid !
Let fortune's favors chill not
The heart to accents meek;
Like winter's ruthless breezes,
Be not thy heart as bleak !
Go to the humble cottage,
Where hearts so wrongly bleed,
And turn those tears to gladness,
And Ood will lless the deed !

TRICE OF WHEAT IN OLDEN TIMES.
Among the curiosities of Agriculture, may be
mentioned tho fact that in England, in tho year
1043, wheat sold for sixpence per quarter, of 8
bushels, or one cent and a half a bushel; in 128G,
for 2s. 8d.; but from one storm of rain, thunder
and lightning, on St. Margaret's night, 20th Ju-
Jy of that year, it lose to the enormous height of
two shillings a bushel! In 1557, before harvest
it was 13 a quarter; after harvest it fell to 75
cents a quarter, of 8 bushels. High prices usu
ally indicate the prosperity of other puisuits,
without which agriculture never thrives and all
the world over, prosperous agriculture is signifi
cant of advancing civilization. It is the great
source of wealth, as wealth is the means of ame
lioration and refinement.
Let tho loom and tl.o anvil flourish near to
the plough, and then the plough will bring its
ritches out of ll.n great productive machine the
earth and will) abundance come.- education and
amendment in every thing. Men get more pow
er of self government, and Euhmit less to being
too much governed by others, and the more inti
mately individual interests becomes identified and
blended with the public interest, tho more per
feet will be the administration of public affairs,
the public expenses will be lessoned, end the
security for peace strengthened. All these are
truths which every farmer and planter, above ell
other people in the world, ought to learn and
Military Arrangements. Somo important
movements have recently been made by the War
Department for the we3tern frontier of the re
public. The departments of Oregon and Cali.
fornia (10 end 11) Bra consolidated into one,
called "the third or Pacific division," under the
command of Brevet Major General Persil F.
Smith. The Adjutant General's last general or
ders designate these arrangements. General Or
der No. 64 creates the "third or Pacific divis.
ion;" No. 55 assigns Hrevet Brigadier Ceneral
Riley, Lieutenant Colonel 2J artillery, to brevet
rank: and No. 61 assigns General Smith to the
command of the Pacific division, on his brevet
rank of brigadier general. From the established
character of both these distinguished officers, il
will be seen that they are admirably qualified
for the responsible and distant stations to which
they have been respectively assigned Wash.
" If good people," said Archbishop LUer,

Atbcrmarle Co. Vi., March 21st., 1847.
Mr. SiUh W. Fowle Dear Sir. 1 take pleas
ure in staling to yon my experience in tho use of
wisisr ttalsam ol Wild Uherry. 1 own a very
valuable negro girl, who was attacked with a dith-
euliy of the lungs, which brought her in appear-
all no to the brink ot the grave. 1 ccnjuiteu some
t our best Physicians, who pronounced tier cose
incurable, or that they could do no more for her.
1 tried many remedies but none did iior any good
aw sume account ot Wistara balsam, and
thought I would try it, but had little faith in it.
I procured a bottle, which was administered ac
cording to directions, and saw she begin to mend;
and before Iho first bottle was gone she was up.
i procured a second and she took that, and now she
is I think, cured, or nearly so. She attends to her
daily labor, and I hcur nu complaint from her.

following note from the Harrison Gazette The
ncredulous are invited to read I he following note
from Rev. Mr. Coldron, whose character fur truth
nnd veracity is above suspicion, and have their
doubts dispelled as to the superiority of Wislar's
balsam of Wild Cherry, over all other remedies
now before the public ot the same character:
C'orydon, lnd., Jan. SJH,
It is no less a duty than a pleasure to slate, for
the benefit of theatlticted, that 1 consider Wislar
Balsam of Wild Cherry, a great blessing to the
human race. Having tried it in a case of severe
allliction of the lungs, 1 unhesitatingly recommend
it to those similarly alllicted, as the best remedy I
have ever tried, and one which cured me when
physicians said I must die, and when I thought
myself that my time to depart was nenr at hand.
IVt-Caution to all. Tho genuine Wistar's
Balsam is enveloped in a fine white steel engraved
wrapper, with the names of Henry Wistar, M. D.

WE call the attention of the public to the ar
ticle heading this advertisement, and in
vite the enterprising and curious to call and wit
ness its operation. All advertisement in relation
to this invention, to the hundreds who have seen
it tested, is supererogation.
First. This Churn will produce butter, gather
ing it in a mass, from sweet milk, in fiva to ten
mimics, and from cream prepared, as families usu
ally prepare it, in three to five minutes.
Second. The utility of this invention is appa
rent, as better buttor can bo produced from sweet
milk, or cream, than croutn soured in the usual
way; and by means of this Churn, a little girl or
boy can perforin, iu live or ten minutes, what has
heretofore required the labor of a woman or man
n.nei0r tW0 ''ours' ""d sometimes half a day.
Ihird. By simply turning a thumb-screw, the
whole inside dasher is taken out, leaving nothing
but the butter and milk in the plain wooden box.
Fourth. It is the cheapest Churn ever invented,
as the simplicity of iu constructiun (though em
bodying a great philosophical principle,) makes it
but little to manufacture it.
Fifth. It is a common sensa nimrn. nil
admit who will examine it.
we are now ottering the complete monopoly of
this staple article in States and counties, which
wiil insure certain and large profits aud a speedy
return of investments.

Very Important to the Public.
ADDISON G. BRAGG, of St. Louis, having
made a foul und malicious attempt to destroy
the popularity and sale of Dr. Champion's very
popular and highly esteemed medicines, by mean's
of false add slanderous publications in the Saint
Louis Sun, and in other papers published in St.
Louis, and perhaps iu papers published in different
parts of the country and having failed in his ma
licious intent, we know not what other means may
bo resorted to to accomplish this foul purpose
but in order to guard the public against imposition
we deem it our duty to inform them that we have
furnished all our travelling agents with a regularly
outhenlicated Letter of Attorney, signed with our
own written signatures, and certified under seal by
a Notary Public or other orouer officer of St. Clair
county, Illinois, and also with a copy of the Letter
Testamentary, certified and sealed by the Probate
Juslico of the Peace of said county. Have noth
