Mprsaintcd mother ! thou hast bade Phis earth a long good night; And changed thy garb of sadness hero For one of fadeless light! Imagination often brings Thy features mild and fair ; But beautiful as they were once, How lorclier in yon sphere! The flowers have bloom’d and died full oft. As leaves upon the tree ; And many suns have rose and set, Since thou wert last with me ; But still I can indulge the thought That thou art near me yet, To^husb the murmur on my lips, To calm iny vain regret! Sweet mother ! I remember well How in thy doatingjoy, Thou wouldst enfoid inc to thy breast, And bless thy little boy ; And o’er my cheek would softly fall Tears of maternal love, And on the bud untimely chill’d The dew floats from above. And I remember, too, when oft Within thine arms I lay ; I sobb’d the pray’r that Death would first Take me, thy child, away ! I wept to think of losing thee. And sooner would have gone To rest beneath the churchyard tree, Than be an orphan lone ! And thou wouldst soothe me, blessed one, With gentle word and look, Until the torrent of my grief Became a rippling brook ; And then thou liadst some holy hymn To lull me to repose; Until the tears would leave mine eyes, And sleep their lids would close ! wiico ine nour ol Rickncsa came, Thy ministering hand Would kindle up anew the flame That smoulder’d on the brand. And then a heav’nly smile would come Upon thy care-worn brow, And thou wouldat mark with watchful glance The spreading of the bough ! But ere the branch, like hope, had borne Its trembling leaves of green, A veil was o’er its freshness thrown, A shadow went between ! My mother ! thou wort call’d above— To death thy form was given ; But thy meek spirit soar’d on high, To rest its wings in heav’n ! From the N. Y. Tribune. CURATIVE EFFECTS OF MESMER ISM. A young lady of Ohio, about 18 years of age, who has been for soma time at school at HartfoTd, Conn., received an injury in the lower part of her spine, in November last, from a fall, which ren dered her unable to bear even the slightest ele vation toward an erect position, and kept her in continual pain. She was attended by the most skillful physicians without benefit, but at length, under the advice of a physician of this city.'she was placed on a bed constructed for the purpose, and brought here by railroad and steamboat, with the view of trying the effects of mesmeric treat ment under his direction. She arrived here on the 3d inst. accompanied by her brother-in-law, and sister and put up at Judsou’s Hotel, Broad way. I he following evening the physician in troduced Mr. Oltz, a distinguished magnetizer, and recommended him to make the proper mes meric passes along the spine for the purpose of allaying tho high nervous excitement under ■which she was laboring, and which had continued without intermission, from the time of the acci dent. The passes were quite effectual, and that night she enjoyed sound and refreshing sleep which she had not obtained for the previous five months. 1 he next mornings tho magnetizer, by means of the mesmeric passes alone, gradually raised her to an erect position, in which she remained about a minute. In the evening, he operated again, and she was again enabled to sit erect. The doctor then directed him to raise her upon her feet, which he did with a few passes; and, supported by the magnetizer and the physician, she found herself able to walk several times across the room. After resting about fifteen min utes in an easy chair, where her expressions of wonder and gratitude were deeply fervent and afTecting, she repeated her walk around and -across the room, and retiring full of joy and hope again passed the night in tranquil sleep. On the following morning, the mesmeric pasees proved so effectual that she was considered suffi ciently restored to undertake a journey to Phila delphia, that afternoon, on her way to her family in Ohio. Mr. Oltz accompanied her to the depot in Jersoy City, and having senteu her comforta bly in the car, and stowed her away previous trav elling couch upon the top, transferred her mes meric power over her to her brother-in-law,and saw her start on her unexpected jonrney. The follow ing are extracts of a letter from the sister who ac companied her, to her physician in this city, da ted Harrisburg, Penn., April 13th, 1846: “ I fe*r neglecting to write from Philadel-! phia will lead you to think we do not appreciate the kind interest you took in sister’s case. Be assured we do and evor shall remember you with gratitude. * * * Our kind friend Mr. Oltz (to whom you will please remember us) doubtless told you how well we succeeded in getting to the cars. Mr. B. was able to continue the influence to auch a degree as to keep her very easy for about two hours, when, owing to some relaxation of effort she became sick at the stomach. We gave her the little globules [Ipecsctianna] which soon relieved that, and when, notwithstanding the noise and motion of the cars, Mr. B_suc ceeded in putting her into a sounder sleep than ever she had been in before and she awoke from it quite refreshed. For two days after our arri val in Philadelphia she felt too weary for exer tion ; but on the third night, after being magne tized, she sat up for more than two hours'and walked about the room for nearly an hour; she slept well that night, and was next day quite comfortable. We left Philadelphia at half past seven in the morning, and rode nine hours over the roughest Railroad in the country, but under tho magic influence she was kept quietly asleep most of the time. She feels much fatigued and sore to day, hot is in good spirits at the idea o? starting and the comparative ease with which lb. Test of the journey will he performed.” Serious IIobberv.—The Brooklyn Star state that a woman, supposed to be deranged, made i orcible entry into the cabin of the sloop Sarah Y^eonard, lying near the Gowanus bridge, and bi means of some implement broke open the desk o Capt.

The patent galvanic rings, & MAGNETIC FLUID.—This remarkable dis covery has received the universal approbation of the Medical Profession of Great Britain, and has been sufficiently long before llieAmcrican public to give a fair trial of its power and efficacy. The I'LNT GALVANIC RINGS avc been found to answer all the purposes for which ordinary Galvan ic Battery or Electric and Magnetic Machines are used, but are without any of the injurious shocks which accompany the applications by those instru ments, and in many other respects arc more safe and certain in accomplishing the desired object. The Galvanic Rings have been used with perfect success in all cases of Rheumatism, acute or chron ic, applying to the head, face or limbs ; Gout,Tic Doloreux, Toothache, Bronchitis, Vertigo, Nervous or Sick Headache, Indigestion, Paralysis, Palsy, Epilepsy, Fits, Cramp, Palpitation of the Heart, Apoplexy, Stiffncssof Joints, Lumbago. Neuralgia, General Debility, Deficiency of Nervous Energy, and all Nervous Disorders. In cases of confirmed Dyspepsia they have been successful. Their extra ordinary effects upon the system must be witnessed to be believed; and as a certain preventive for the above complaints they are equally to he recom mended. The Galvanic Rings are in every way perfectly harmless, and are sold at prices to be within the reach of all. Cristie’s Magnetic Fluid is used in connection with the Rings, to render their efficient action certain, and to direct the Gal vanic influence to the particular portions which arc affected. For numerous certificates of the highest charac ter regarding the efficacy of the Galvanic Rings and Magnetic Fluid, reference is made to former advertisements, or they may be seen at the office.

In Europe this medicine has long enjoyed the reputation of curing all these troublesome com plaints, subject to man, and in this country no in stance of its failure has ever been known wherever it has been introduced, provided the patient strict ly adhere to the directions given. It possesses however what may be justly'called a specific power in most constitutions, especially when administered in the early and acute form of the disease. It moderates the inflamatory symp toms in a shorter time, and with more certainty than the majority of the nauseating nostrums now olfcred to the public. A preparation, therefore like the present one and possessing such medical properties, must, when its virtues are found out, prove the great dosidcraturn sought for, and from the general puccess attending its use, must command a large and extensive cir culation.
