AYER'S PILLS, NEw ag d singularly successful remedy for the A re of all Bilious diseases-Costive.s'. Indi estion, Jaundice, Dropsy. Rheumntism, Fevers, (t, Humors, Nervousness. Irritability, Inflamma tihs, Headache, Pains in the Breast. Side, Back, and Limbs. Female Complaints. & &c.. Indeed, very few are the diseases in which a 'urgative M.ldi cine is not more or less required, and much sick ness and suffering might be prevented. f a harm less but effectual Cathartic were more fteely .sed. No person can feel well while a costive habit of body prevails; besides, it soon generates serious.tad often fatal diseases, which might have been asvoied by the timely and judicious use of a good purgare. l'his is alike tre of Colds, Feverish symptoms. ad Bilious dera ents. They all tend to become or produce the sted and formidable distempers whichload the e all~over th land. Hence a allable family physic is of the arst importance to the public health, and this Pill has been perfected with consummate skill to meet that demand. An extesive trial of its virtues by Physicians, Profes sors, and Patients, has shown results surpassing any tling hitherto known of any medicine. Cures have been effeeted beyond belief, weie they no: sub ' td by persona of sudh exalted position and 1 the 'cio of untruth. An tieeho have testied rxv Prot J. M. Locac, Analyti rianati, whose high professional character is Is dorsed by .onso McLs.A, Judge of the Supreme Court of the United States. Toos. Coaw.r, Secretarv of the Treasury. IIon. J. M.

Asroa. the riche.t man in America. S. LsILtA & Co., Propr's of the Metropolitan Hotel. and many others. Did space permit, we could give many hundred I ertificates, from all parts wihere the Pills have been used, but evidence even more convincing than the experce of eminent public men is found in their efcts upon trial. These Pills, the result of long investigation and study, are offered to the public as the best and most complete which the present state of medical science can afford. They are compounded not of the drugs tfenselves, but of the medicinal virtues only of Vegetable remedies, extracted by chemical process in a state of purity, and combined together to such amanner as to insure the best results. This system of composition for medicines has been found in the Cherry Pectoral and Pills both, to produce a mrse effcient remedy than had hitherto been ob tained by any process. The reason is perfectly ob viou While by the old mode of composition, every medicine is burdened with more or less of acri maonis and injurious qualities, by this each indi vidual virtue only that is desired for the curative efectispresent. All the inert and obnoxious qual ities of each substance employed are left behind, the curative virtues only being retained. Hence it is self-evident the effects should prove, as they have proved, more y remedial, and the Pills a surer, ae pow. l antidote to disease than any other ediine hknown to the world. As it i frequently expedient that my medicine slM be taken under the cotnsel of an attending Physician, and as he could not properly judge of a remedy without knowing its composition, I have spplied the accurate Formulae by which both my Peetoal and Pills are made to the whole body of Pr.ctitimers in the United States and British Amer aa Provines If however, there should be any e who has not received them, they will be empt forwarded by mail to his request. Of all the Patent Medicines that are offered, how few would be taken if their composition was known ! Thee 6i comaista in their mystery. I have r.n tIompositio of my preparations is laid open tl ran, anl all who areompetent to judge on the Wjet freely acknowledge their onvictions of .eir -tr merits. The Cherry Pectoral wa .,lsd by aseietili men to be a wonderful me before its effects were known. Many em m-it Ph ansians have declared the same thing of SPl, and even more confidently, and are will t~avo that their anticipations were more Snm by their effects upon trial.

Whlen Sir Cristphler Wren began to buil- the New St. Paul's, in digging for a foundation, ihe came to a laver ot Sax on graves, lilned with chalk, some in stone coffins ; a:ti! ait some dis'ance be low, the bcdies the IBritish, only wrapped in woo in shrouds, fastened with pins of hard wood. In the same row yet deeper, (-igteen feet) were the ashes of the Romans in urnis-Britons and Romains together-The conqugtors and conqulered both !og.-ther. Lower than these graves stood the foundat;ons of old St. Paul's resting upon very close pot earth, tand yet still lower nothing bult 'dvy and mixed sometimes unequally. Ibut mostly so loose that it would pas through the fingers; then water and sand, mixed with periwinkles arnd other i sea shells. This was about the level of low water mark. The gradual rise of the site of London by the formation of shoals, &c., will be readily understood by the above account. It grew by natural causes, and at the time of the arrival of the Romans was a rude British stronghold, d;tended by earthworks, and by thick woods towards the north. and surrounded on the other s;ides by an immense extent of water, amid which the present course of the Thames could scarcely be defined.-The Builder. ANNs OLDFnrILD KRi)tVIVU.- iMrs. was a pretty widow of from twenty to twenty eight, left rich by herllusland, a respectable and wealthy farmer of S---, in the county of Oakland, who juttdicious ly died about the age of fifty. B- , a sighting swain of twenty. fell in love with this charming widow during a :chool vacation, and was tllereby dis traeted from stuldy and nearly franttic. His father. who "designed him for the ministry," had a peculi ar horror of the sweet widow, whom lie regarded as lit tie better than one of the wicked. Her itack eyes, her heaving bosom, and her elastic tread, were to him only the sym. bols of old Nick. -He wasin despair, and in his lespair lie visited the widow, and besought her, if she had a particle of mercy,. not to ruin his son. In vain the widow protested that she had used no arts--had only seen the youth a few times. and was entirely indifferent to him: the father still insisted. ani the pretty widow promised that if the boy camne again to see her it should be his last visit. Not many days passed, when the enam ored youth made his arrangements for a visit, of which the widow had notice. The few previous interviews between them had taken place under circumstances pe culiarly favorable to romance and senti ment, upon moonlite walks or in parlor tete-a-tetes. This time the timid youth was tohl upon his arrival that Mrs-- was at the barn; whither he went and found his beau ideal, with skirts knee high, a man's hat, a pipe iniher mouth, a mug of cider in her hand, superintending her men-KILLING HOGS! He never came again-it was Too killing.-Detroit Ad vertiser. CHILDISH SIMPLICITY.--T he Roches ter (N. Y,) Democrat says a gentlemen of that city. proprietor of a coal yard, was endevoring, a few days ago, to impress upon the mind of his son, a little fellow five or six years old, something of the character, etc., of God. Among other things, he told him he was his Father in Heaven, and if his earthly parent should die, he would still have a Heavenly Father to care for him and protect him. The little fellow was all attention. evidently interested and pleased at the idea of having two farthers, and, looking up, lie inquired earnestly if his" Father in Heaven kept a coal yard toot" A RAfT IqrnlK--A modern traveler in Germany, gives a description of one of the im mence rafts which occasionally descend the Rhiue. He says,"it was nine hundred feet long two hundred wide, on which was built a village for the accommodation of the boatmen and the pasengerm, consisting of abeut one thousand perons. There were attle, ogs, and other animals on board--ana also a shop where the pbaengers could'be supplied with eveay necessaryticle." Retribution or, the Coquette at Fault. A TALE FOR APRIL-FOOL DAY. At a festive party, on the first day of April eighteen hundred and forty six. were asseubled a good!y number of young ladies and gentlemen, conspicuous among whom shone, as the 'bright, par ticular stars,' of the evening, Miss A nnie Trumbull and Miss Charlotte Entise; the former a beautiful lady-the latter both beautiful and coquettish, even to a fault. It may, with safety be said, that Miss Entise was "an arrant coquette," beauti ful on the extreme, and he, who had been jilted, or slighted by her would soon forget his defeat and return again, to bow at the shrine of her beauty. Be tween these two ladies, there can be claimed no precedence in the- point of loveliness-but the former, when she did love, love I ; but the latttr, when she pretended to love. was at the same time practicing, with full suc6ess, her heartless coquetry. Among tue principal gallan:s of the evening, might be counted Mr. Howland a very aristocratic and, apparently, weal thy gentleman, Mr. Charles Dan"ers, a respectable mechanic, and several others whose names it will be unuecessary to inentio,. Mr. Danvers had been paying Tlis at tentions to Miss Entise for quite a year, and he had sanguine hopes of ulti'mately being united to her, but his youg fiends often said to him, "Charley, what's the use of wasting your time with that foolish girl. It will all end in your being gilted, and then for a short rope and high tree!" But Char!es was deaf to all counsel, or entreaties, and still pursued his for mer course, blinded and entransed by the beauty of Miss E., he was really blind to her faults. "'Mr. Danvers has engaged me to dance," whispered Miss Lotise to her next compauion, "and when he come to lead me on the floor, I will beg to be excused, and then enjoy his defeat. April Fool: how appropriate. You will notice his countenance !" She did so. Mr. Danvers came for ward, claimed his right to her had in this set, on the grounds of a previous engagement, when, surprising to him -elf, she begged to be excused. But on his turning dismayed away, he was more surprised to hear proceed from her lips --April Fool." Ills cheek blanched for an instant, while M.ss E., was almost convulsed with laughter; but, reader. she knew not the consequences-from that moment and ever afterwards, Danvers released all right to her hand, and vowed never more to exchange the least word with the haughty beauty.

During tie evening he had put a note into her hand, which he told her to read ht the close of the sett, in which he had engaged her dance. Danvers had determined to retaliate on Miss Entise, and now he had an op portunity.

Picking himself up, the deacon discoverd the cause of his overthrow standing in all the calmness and dignity of a conscious victor. His rage was boundless, and he saluted him with the energetic language, 'You God damned old rascal!' At that moment his eye caught a glimpse of the benign face'of the "minister" peering through the fence, and lie instantly added," if I may be allowed the expres sion."
