PILLS.
!0O ALL T E PURPOSES OF A
FAMILY PHYSIC.
Talla has long existed a public demand for an
ec.-vve purgative pill whi,"h could bt relied on as
wre and perfectly safe in its operation. This has
been prepared to meet that demand, and an eaten
live trial of its virtues has conclusively shown with
what seemass it accomplishes the purpose designed.
It is easy to make a physical pill, but not easy to
make the best of al pills--one which should have
nose of the objetos., but all the advantages, of
ewy other. This has been attempted here, and
whl what success we would respectfully submit to
tih public decision. It has been unfortunate for
the patient hitherto that almost every purgative
aediine is serimonious and irritating to the bow
es. This is nat. Many of them produce so much
pain and revulsion in the system as to more
en a tearbaaee the good to be derived from
Mag gidl produce no irritation or pain,
.. it k sat from a previously existing obstruc
)w ties or derangemeat in the bowels. Being purely
vqetable, no hasrm can arise from their use in an)
quanity; but it is better that any medicine should
e taken judkiiously. Minute directions for their
a.e in the several diseases to which they are ap
plicable are given on the box. Among the com
plaints whirk have been speedily cured by them, we
myyention Liver Complaint, i:n its various forms
7'eadice. Indigestion, Languor and Loss of Ap
eFtre, Listlessness, Irritability. Bilious Headache,
mhlio Fever, Fever and Ague, Pain in the Side
and Loins; for, in truth, all these are but the con
sequence of diseased action in the liver. -As an
erient they afford prompt and sure relief in Cos
tivenems, Piles,Colic, Dysentery, Humors, Scrofula
sad Scurvy, Colds with soreness of the body, Ulcers
aad impurity of the blood, Irregularities; in short,
an and every ease where a pargative is required.
Te have also produced some singularly sue
ae res in Rheumatismn, Gout, Dropsy, 6Gravel,
&yiplas, Palpitation of the Heart, Pains in the
Iaek, stomach, and Side. They should be freely
in the sying of the year, to pur;fy the blood
ad ppmae thte system for the change of seuasons.
An oeapaioal dose stimulates the stomach and
ioeels lats healthy action, and restores the appe
Said vigor. They purify the blood, and, by their
hulaet nation on the cireulatory system, reno
ates the strength of the body, and restore the
wated or diseased energies of the whole organism.
taem an occasional dose is advantageous, even
though no serious derangement exists; but un
Iosnmary dosing should never be carried too fir,
Severy purgative medicine reduces the strmgth,
thenataken to exces. The thousand cases in which
a physic is required cannot be enumerated here, but
sugest themselves to the reason of every
;and it is confidently believed this pill will
answer a better purpose than any thing which has
hitherto been atailable to mankind. "When their
irtues are once known, the public will no longer
doubt what remedy to 'employ when in need of,
cathartic medicine. Bemin sugar-wrappied, they are
pleasat to take, and being purely vegetable, no
mn can arise from their use m any quantity.

Tans remedy has won for itself such notoriety
frm its cures of every variety of pulmonary disease,
that It is entirely unnecessary to recount the evi

that almost every section of the country abounds
in persons publicly known, who have been restored

lungs by its use. When once tried its superiority
Over every other medicine of its kind is too appa

A.N OssIlFI.. M^AN.-In a quiet little
vd illaget n the Western Reserve. in Oiio,
says the Prescott Transcript, there lives
a man who, physiologically considered,
ig certainly one of the wonders of the
1s world. isl joints sae completely ossi
. fled, turned to bone, and he is not capa
ble of making the slightest movement,
except alternately opening and shutting
two fingers of his right band. His body
it is as rigid as iron, and it couldn't be
bent without breaking some of his bones.
This singular process of ossification has
been going on in his system for more
than twenty years, le is now about 46
years old. and has not had the use of
his limbs so that he could walk since he
was nineteen. Ossification commenced
first in his aikle joints, gradually extend
ing itself through his system until he
was entirely helpless ; ince that time
lie has been aholly under his mother's
r. care, and lshe watches over him with an
anxiety only a mothet can feel. When
ailhout 26 '.ears old lie became entirely
0iblind froii smine unknown cause, and
hiis remained so ever since. At about
S3(0 he 'itiered greatly from toothache,
o and finally had themn all extracted. A
1 l rear or two afterwards his finger and toe
0 nails came off, and were supplied by
, others grwing out from hi~ finiers and
0a toes at right angles and present.ng, the
o ! appearance of hiornis. \VWhat is still Imore
i singular in regard to his nails. !f the end
of the rail is cut off it will bleed freely.
o Such is the condition of this remarkabie
man at !l:e present time. lie has been
visited by a great number of scientific
men from all parts of the world, but all
t have filecd to give any plausible reason
iof the cause of his tran,sforamation from
flesh to lone. Sin.unlar as it may ap
Spear. although his jaw bone is firmly set
o in his head, lie not only talks freely, but
fluently converses with his friends and
r, thse 's bho visit him. on all ordinary .op
u" ie of tlie day, and ihe shows himself well
einf*,rned, and of good mil,'. He is a|
wn- aysv cheerfu:, appears contented and
Si:!,I,iy, and it seems proballe that he
w ll live many years t' come.
A LirrTTLE lo's PRAYER.--A little
I.boy after saying nightly the prayers
which had been taught him, was quite
-ti-narcious of what he called praying his
own way. lie had a large number of
brothers and sisters, whose needs and
peculiarities lie soiiietimes made the sub
ject of his petitions. On one oreasion,
at commencing this exercise, he was
overcome with sleep. Wrestling with
his stupor, ihe said :
"Oh, Lord bless Elizabeth, and make
her better than she is.'
His head fell back on his pillow, but
:soon rousing, he murmured, drowsily,
"Bless Henry, too." It was is vain ; the
tongue refused its office-so he added,
indistinctly :
"Oh, Lord, I can't, there are many of
'em." and he sank into the deep slumber
of childhood.
At another time, while conducting
this exercise in a somewhat more wake
ful manner, he said :
"Lord, please to bless father, and give
him a new heart. Be so kind to bless
Mar', my little sister, and give her a new
heart. Oh, Lord, bless mother, but you
need not give her a new heart, for she
could not have any better one than she's
got. and I don't see how she'd go to
work to be any better woman than she is

BROTHEa COLE'S MIRACLE.-A cler
gyman in a country church had been,
in the course of his sermon, expounding
on the nature of miracles. No sooner
had the sermot, ended than one of his l
congregation, a bluff farmer, approached
him, and began to thank him for much
that he had learned in attending to his
discourse; but hoped that his reverence
would pardon his asking for some fur
t- her elucidation of the meaning of a mi
racle, nothing that he had then heard
having tended to enlighten his ignorance
of the nature of such an occurrence.-
The divine immediately assented, re
questing the farmer to wait in the porch
SLill the congregation had di-persed. In
the porch, accordingly, did Giles station
t himself, happy in the hope of the solu
tion of such a mystery, and was sedu
I lously watching the departure of the !ast
1 loiterers in the churchyard, when he was
b literally "taken aback" by a tremendous
salute in tho rear fr*,m the well directed
and vigorously applied boot of the pastor,
whio, in reply to the mingled expressions
of pain and wonder which burst from
his disciple, mildly inquired, "Whether
what he had then received causd any
pain I" "It hurt me most confoundedly,"
s rejoined the farmer. "Then," said the
cr lergyman, in the most significant man
d ner, "all I can tell you is, that it woeid
bare teen a miracle if it had not."
e 'THE WAY OF THE Vb'tLD.--'lhe
i, Home Journal gives the following free it
s translation of a suggestive passage from v
I, "Les Femmes," a recently published ci
e work of Alphonse KIarr. It contains a I
- world of wisdom, if the reader's philos- a
ophy can but find it out: tl
I called the other day upon a pretty "
woman, whom I found in a state melan- ii
cholly. "I feel quite sad." she said : "I tl
had been reading some fairy tales yes- ir
terday, and I dreamt, all last night, of at
a those delightful godmothers who over- w
w wheln you with precious gifts-such as w
3 Prince Lutin's cap of roses, which -made
f him invisible; Prince Loulon's ring, L
which made him so charming that oa
I woman could resist him; and I awoke '
discouraged to find myself once more h
s fallen into the prose of actual life." "I g
see," was my reply, "you have not your w
eyes sufficiently about you. The prodi- to
1 gies you speak of are constantly being a
t reproduced in our own time. You have
onlyo tell the people who come to see o1
1 you, that you are neice, cousin or god- ol
t daughter to a man in high office, and w
, .o will soon see how much beauty and el
wit the discovery will add to the stock ni
of those gifts you already possess-you ki
will ste how much admiration and flat FI
terv will be lavished upon you. And, e&
unlike the girls in the ;airy tales, you
will ave no occasion to be really the at
gd-daughter-to say that you are, will
be sufficient. I- know a man who is a g<
brute and a clown by birth and educa
tion, clumsily made, and as great a fool hi
as it is possible to be. Well, when this
fellow puts on his finger a certain ring ta
i decorated with a large pebble, of the
species they call diamond, he becomes
- witty, well bred, handsome, and an ainu
c sing companion-at least, people regard it
him as such. Whenever 1 wish to make t
I mysclf invisible, I have a certain old hat, cil
rusty and napless, which I put on as of
Prince Lutin put on his cap of roses.- te
To this I add a certain seedy paletot. p
I Lo, and behold ! I become immediately rn
invisible. Not a being in the town sees, to
mecogoizes or speaks to me." co

MARnUAl. NaE's DIATH ScENE.-The
le vengeance of the allied powers demanded
ra son victims, and the intrepid Ney,
e who had well nigh put the crown again
i on Bonaparte's head at Waterloo, was to
f be one of them. Condemned to be shot,
lhe was led to the garden of Luxemburg,
" on the morning of the 7th of December,
and placed in front of a file of soldiers,
º drawn utro kill him. One of the offi
Icers stepped up to bandage his eyes, but
he repulsed him, saying:
:e "Are you ignorant that for twentyfive
years I have been accustomed to face
't both ball and bullet ?"
7, He then lifted his hat above his head
e and with the same calm voice that had
1 steadied his columns so frequently in
the roar and tumult of battle, said :
"f I declare before God and man that I
:r never betrayed my country.: May m.
death render her haopy. Viv eaFranceP'
g He then turned to the soldiers, and
striking his hand on his heart, gave the
order, ''Soldiers, fire !"
'e A simultaneous discharge followed.
15 and the "bravest of the brave" sank to
rise no more. "He who had fought five
u hundred battles for France, not one
e against her, was shot as a traitor !"
' As I looked on the spot where he fell,
SI could not but sigh over his fate. True,
is he broke his oath of allegiance; so did
others, carried away by their attachment
to Napoleon, and the enthusiasm that
r- hailed his approach to Paris. Still he
was no traitor.
Kr AKr o Down A HATCHWAY.-One
is day, when the flag ship of an American
d Commodore was lying in the bay of Na
h ples, she was honored by the King
is and rovya family, with suite, who came
:e in gilded barges and the full parade cf
r- royalty. The ship was dressed from
i- deck to truck in holliday attire; side
d boys were mustered at the ropes, the ma
:e rines presented arms, the guns thunder
- ed forth a royal salute, and the C(nmmo
- dore welcomed his guests to the quarter
h deck with the politeness befitting an of.
n fieer of rank.
in One of the suite, a spindle-shanked
a- and gaudily attired Neapolitan, strayed
u- away from the party, and, cruising about
st midships,%spied a windsail, an object lihe
as had never seen before. As it was fully
us expanded by the air, he took it for a pil
id lar, ant folding his arms, leaned against
ir, it, when it vielded to his weight. and he
as disappeared below, heels over head, with
nma velocity that was actually marvellous,
er as was his escape from injury. The mis'
Iy hap Chanced to have only one witness.
" This was a veteran tar, who, approaching
Ie the quarter deck and touching his hat,
n, respectfully: ' I beg pardon, Commo
d (lore, but one of them are K.mr has fal.
len down the hatchcay ?"

in the smart village of Cincinnati tlhre
Svegetates a certain hoteb keeper, who, for
I cuteinehs, is "some," y6 u may depend.
Having frequently been imposed upon
while ru.plving his bountiful larder with
the nrticle or geese, by the wide awake
"Buckeye" hucksters, he detmed it high
time to try if cheating Hasn't a game
that two could play at. So one morn
ing, bright and early, lie presented him
self before one of the numerous farmers'
wagons surrounding the market squares,
with a--"I s-s-say, friend, g-g-got any
geese." (The poor fellow has got Chas.
Lamb's defect of speech.)
"Yes, fine lot - ."
-;ww/d, I've g-g-got up at my
b-b- I firedest set of bovs for
g-g-geese you id see, and I
want to h-head 'em o with some
tough ones-c-can't you p-pick me out .
a few old h-he fellers."
"Well, I don't know but I mfght find
one or two," and so turning over his pile
of poultry, he collects on one side of his
wagon some eight or ten geese, which
claim to the title of "old he fellers"
needed no corroborative proof of "Noot
ka Sound Convention," or "Treaty of
Florida," but might justly be pronounc
ed clear and unquestionable.
"Mine host" eyed the progress of sep
aration with evident satisfaction.
"Are those all the t-tough ones you've
got ?"
"Yes, sir, and I vow I didn't know I
had so many,"
'Well," was the reply, "I g-guess I'll
take the other lot !"
