MISCELLANEOUS.
From the Boston Allas.
Old Rough and Ready.
Hearty and hale on the downhill of life,
Nurtured by iabgr and strengthened by strife,
Grey from exposure, where danger was rife,
Our Zscb, has grovyn rough and grown old.

Trying the Patience 0 * a Judge.
Watty Jenkins was emphatically a iaic g (
old fellow. Everybody that knew him, and
in fact ail persons that ever had anything to j j 0
with him, had st lange misgivings that he
was a sort of a wag, and a bit of a quiz.
Bv some means or other best known to him
seif, lie picked up a smattering of mathe- tho
n.atics, and relying upon this and his nn- ! j
pudence, "squatted in a certain town in .
Old Virginia, and there boldly hung out his ou
sign as a regular surveyor of land. He
got some jobs, and some jobs he did not get
—nevertheless, he managed to get Ins whis- gone
key, and to keep an old mare upon whose f
back he was wont to r.de when any good -
farmer in jhe county demanded his services. ug
It so happened that one Jeremiah I nn,
a sort of a growling, bitter-headed tiller of '
the soil, had a plantation some five miles ]ooked
from VI atty Jenkins s adopted home—ana
J , , . f, . ,, .
it moreover happened that this Mr. lim got

and the same thing—and sundry violent
, , , ... 15 , • . . ,. lall!
legal demonstrations were made aga n-t his j
lands, which terminated one way oranothei, I
we do not know which. In the speechify- j
ing and wrangling at Couit, Watty was; F)Y
called upon as a witness; and as they put j J)
him to some trouble to travel through the ; son
mud, he determined to be as crooked as his ceased,
crooked nature would permit, and give them j of
as little satisfaction in as large a number of money
words as any modern stump orator possibly J bears
could do. j 1040
The Judge of the Court was a hard one CO rd
—one of your old, pursy, blowing, restless j 706 ,
gents, whose mind appeared to be flying
about from one thing to another, and whose
body appeared as ill-at-ease in his chair, as
a June bug upon a hut griddle. When
Watty was duly called upon, and duly sworn
to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing
but the truth, he struck an attitude of com
plete Irish indifference, for he was a Cork
onian to the back bone, and said nothing 1
until Ihe Judge disturbed his silence by ex- W "
claiming vehemently—
' Mr. Jenkins, please tell the Court and being
Jury whether you surveyed this land or not." K ea l
Mr. Jenkins looked at the Judge, ahem conveyed
med and hawed, and then commenced in sn }' :
West
of

said
Quick as the flash from the flint and the steel,
Prompt to express what his bosom may feel,
Eager to show a true patriot's zeal,
fie is watchful and ready, and bold.
Oî.dî— like the oak in whose age we delight,
Recoil—like the diamoud whose heart is still
bright,
React!— to wake like the watch-dog at night,
When the wolves shall break into the fold.
I/ing may he yet live to his country endeared!
I/ir.g, as its chief ruler, may he be revered!
By friends well beloved, and by enemies feared,
When the tales of his prowess are told.

Here every person in the court room
commenced to laugh, but Watty's face was
as calm as a summer's morning. The
Judge told him emphatically that it would
not do—he had to interrupt him for detaining
them so, and begged of him, if he had any!
thing to say. to say it to the point, and be
done with this delay.
Watty looked at him calmly, cleared his
throat, and commenced agaiu with an air

Dr. TOWNSEND'S
COMPOUND EXTRACT OF
SARSAPARILLA.
Otto
for
FjMHIS Extract is put up in quart bottles—it
JL is six time« cheaper, pleasanter, and war
ranted superior to any sold. It cures diseases
without vomiting, purging, sickening or debili
tating the patient, and is particularly odapted
for a Fall and Winter MEDICINE. The great
beauty and superiority of this Sarsaparilla over
all other remedies is. while it eradicates disease,
it invigorates Ihe body. Bronchitis, consump
tion, liver complaint, colds, coughs, catarrn,
asthma, spitting of blood,soreness in the sliest,
hectic flush, night sweats, difficult of profuse
expectore tion and pain in the aide, ^c., have
and can he cured.
Probably there never was a remedy that has
been so successful in desperate cases of con
sumption us this; it cltianses and strengthens
the system, and appears to heal the ulcers on
the lungs, und the patients gradually gain their
usual health and strength.
CURIOUS CASE OF CONSUMPTION.
There is scarcely a day passes but there is a
number of cases of Consumption reported as cu
red by the use of Dr. Townsend's Sarsaparilla.
The following was recently received:
Dr. Townsend —Dear Sir: For the last three
years I have been afflicted wit« general debili
ty and nervous consumption of the last stage,
arid did not expect to ever gain mv health at
all. After going through a course of medicine
under the care of some of Ihe most ditsinguished
regular physicians and members of the Board of
Health in New-York and elsewhere, and spend
ing the most of my earnings in attempting lo
regain my health, and after reading in some pa
per of your Sarsaparilla I resolved to try it.
After using six bottles j found it done hie great
good, and called to see you at your office;-tvith
your advice I kepi on," and do rnoet heartilv
thank you for your advice. I penevere in Itt
king the Sarsaparilla, and have been able to at
tend to my usual labors for the last four months,
and I hope by the blessings of God and your
Sarsaparilla to continue my health. It helped
me beyond the expectations of all that knew'
case.

Dr. Townseud: I verily believe that your
t'ursaparilla has been the means, through Frovi

years had a bad cough. It became worse and
worse, At last I raised large quantities of blood,
had night sweats, and was greatly debilitated
and reduced, and did not expect to live,
only uied your Sarsaparilla but a short time,
and there has a wonderful change been wrought
in nie. I am now able to walk all over the city.
I raise no blood, and my cough has left me.
Yon can well imagine that I am thankful for
these results.—Your obedient servant,

TO THE LADIES.
GREAT FEMALE MEDICINE.
Dr. 1 owNSKND s Sarsaparilla is a sovereign
and speedy cure for the incipient consumption,
and for the general prostration of the system—
no matter whether the result of Inherent
or causes, produced by irregularity, or illness.
Nothing can be more surprising thac it* in
vigoruting effects on the human frame. Per
sons all weakness and lassitude, from taking It,
at once become robust and full of energy under
its influence. It immediately counteracts the
nervelessness ofthe female frame, which is the
great cause of barrenness.
It will not be expected of us, in cases of so
delicate a nature, to exhibit certificates of cures
performed, but we can a «sure the afflicted that
hundreds of cases have been reported 'o us.
Dr Iownsend: My wife being greatly dis
tressed by weakness ar.d general debility, and
suffering continually by pain and with other
difficulties, and having known cases where vour
medicine has effected great c;u<-es, r.nd also re
commended for such cases as I have described,
! obtained a bottle of your Extract of Sarsapa
rilla, and followed the directions you gave me.
In a short perioglt removed her complaints and
restored her to health. Being grateful for the
benefits she received, 1 take pleasure in thus ac
knowledging it. and recommending it to the
public. M. D. MOORE, Albany, Aug., 1847.

TO MOTHERS AND MARRIED LADIES.
1 his Extract of Sarsaparilla has been expressly
prepared in reference to female complaints. No
lemale who has reason to suppose .he is approa
ching that critical period, "the turn of life,"
should neglect to take it, as it is a certain pre
ventive for any of the numerous and horrible
diseases to which females are subject at this
time of life. This period mav be delayed for
several year, by using this medicine. Nor is it
fes. valuable for those who are approaching wo'
manhood, as it ia calculated to assist nature by
quickening the blood and invigorating the ays
tern, indeed, this medicine is invaluable for all
thediseases to which women are subject.
