rank of the highly concentrated “ Chalybeatcs,”—
consequently it acts as a Tonic, increasing the
strength of the system, raising the force of circu

in those diseases in which Iron is principally used,

and speedy remedy ever discovered for the cure of
the Secret Diseases.
In Europe this medicine has loner 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 he justly called a
specific power in most constitutions, especially
when administered in the curly and acute form of
the disease It moderates the infiamalory symp
toms in a shorter time, and with more certainty
than the majority of the nauseating nostrums now
offered 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 desideratum
sought for, and from the general success attending
its use, must command a large and extensive cir
culation. Prepared and sold only by

the new York weekly mirror.
THE fourth volume of the Weekly Mirror, in its
present form, commenced on the 11th April,
18-lfi The reduction of the subscription price
from Three Dollars to Two marks an era in the
history of this popular and widely circulated Jour
nal—a journal which, though it hath seen many
changes during the twenty years of its existence,
hn* obtained a high and permanent place in the
annals of .wnerican Literature. It is peculiarly
gratifying to the publisher to be able to state that
senreely a day now passes that does not add to its
subscription list, nor a mail arrive that does not
bring some favorable mention of it by contempo
rary journals.
The new and attractive feature of the present
volume is the publication of an original Novel of
great interest, written expressly for the Mirror,
This beautiful story increases in interest as it pro
gresses, and no one. whose taste has not been per
verted by high spiced fictions of the French school,
can read a single chapter without a desire for the
whole of it. Calculating on the intrinsic excel
lence of the work to make its own popularity,
without the aid of puffing, we have laid aside a
few hundred complete sets of the present volume,
containing all thj chapters as far as published,
and for which there it now a daily demand.
If we could only make up our minds and our
mouths to blow our own trumpet, wc might easily
make noise enough about * The School for Young
Widows’ to create an excitement in the public,
mind, and arouse the curious in literary matters,
i to a loud call for the anonymous author. But we
much prefer to leave our readers to find out them
selves, what is good, without prompting. To pre
face every tiling which appears in our columns
wiih a puff, would he quite as distasteful to our
solves, as insulting to the judgment of the reader.
No man would thank hw cook to stand behind his
chair while eating, and comment upon each dish
upon the table. As ‘good wine needs no hush,’and
good deeds no praise, so good books and good din
ners will be sure to go down without the aid of
The story of ‘ Mary Fckar’ is written by a lady
altogether unknown as an authoress, who ha*
'hrown off this spontaneous production as the
flowers yield their perfume, nnd the birds sing
their songs, not for money or for fame, but, as the
poet says, * fi;prn Love’s excess’—the natural inflo
rescence of a true woman’s heart—
* By gentle feelings long subdued,
Subdued and cherished long.’
The interest of the story mainly centres in the
rha-acte.r of the heroine, Clara Anncslcy, the
daughter ot a poor English Clergyman, who die*,
leaving the lovely orphan alone in the world, with
no inheritance but the fatal dower of beauty.
Like all heroines she is fair and sweet and good—
like Woods worth’*
‘ Lovely apparition sent
To be a moment’s ornament.’
She marries (an ancrel in romance would he stu
pid that did not,) contrary to t he commands of hor
dying father, nnd trouble commences. But we
must disclose her histbry no farther except by
weekly instalments.
In addition to this, the Weekly Mirror is mostly
made up of original contributions of the highest
order ot merit . Several able writers arc regularly
employed in tho various departments of the paper
—and, without bpasting, wc may safely challenge
for the Mirror, in its Essay*, Criticisms, Original
roctry, Domestic and Foreign Correspondence,
&c., tkc., comparison with any similar journal in1
the Lnitcd States. In Morals, as well ns Litera
ture, the character and tone of the paper are unex
ceptionable In politics it is entirely free and
fearless, and in literature and religion untrammel
led by clique or sect.
