INTERESTING TO TRAVELERS.
The man who leaves his home, be it. high or bo it low, be ho rioh or bo ho poorj always finds cause to complain ef the change. We read In books of English Inns, of roaring fires in old-fashioned fire places, of tall candlesticks, bustling wait ers and tidy landladies; but wo often have , felt that those descriptions were the fruits of the imagination of the author. Most of OUr hotels, or taverns , or inns, (dense to call them, in Amorioa, Hble places to live in. Of course, only speak of America, not having, yet, 14 expanded our body or enlarged mind " by foreign travel. We are led into this train of thought by finding on our table a neat littlo note, Allmond's Indian Qubbn The proprietor of this Hotel, Mine host Alltnond, is a Delaware When we say that, we say a good deal for him} but wo are prepared to add that be keeps a first class house, that bis are neat and clean, bis furniture new and elegant,bis parlors commodious, convenient and cheerful ; his dining room spacious, his table loaded with substantial well cooked and delicacies well sdected j bis BAB well attended and tfyppliod with choice brandies, wiuea and other liquors.

THE JUICES OF PLANTS. The negro of Louisiana delights to suck tho juice of tbe " Sugar Canegreeu ''-—the Mexican peon imbibes the fermented juioe of the Cactus or Maguey —tho yankee revels in tho luxury of his sugar camp; but, we wish to coniine milk juices of plauts. All of our reader-, are familiar with the Cactus, in its uioui mauifold shapes—it graces the conserva tory of the wealthy and adorns the cottage of the poor. This plant is ouo of a nume rous tribe of milk-bearing plants which, when wounded, exude a white, milky juice! We select this as a familiar Kpeoiuieo. It our intoutiou, however, to speak in this tide of one species of the milk bearin*' plants, viz :—the Cacutchon*', which yield« the gum elastic. This tree is found iu Brasil and Guiana—probably in Central America. India Rubber, as their hard ened juice is familiarly called, derives its name from ;ta geographical looation and the early use of the article for erasing pen cil marks. In boyhood's day ber that this substance, now so familiar to oil and so general in its applications only used by the artist or erase a mark on paper; then ber the first gum shoes —ugly, uncouth, ill-shaped ebneerns, which have now yielded to tbe elegant and oomfortable sandal and and flesh by India Rubber Springs under our railroad cars ; the huge, stroug, swift locomotive is buoyed up by it ; tbe baby is swung to sleep in its .jumper on this omni present bouncers the boy has bis bat,balls the girl, her pu/lur bull / the baby, his rat tle ; we cut our teeth on an India Rubber ring, and wo comb our beads with India Rubber combs, of which we have endless varieties. The Machinist and the Factory man press it into their service ; it ia used flat and it is used round. Surgical in* sinmwmt* are made of it;* indeed, what is remarks to the ï mem , was schoolboy to we remein jr-shoc.

We have neither time nor inclination to outer into a disquisition on the meaning of the term which stands at tbe head of this article. Wo have not space to devote to a history of this hydra-headed monster, which has withstood the Herculean efforts of suieuce and of satire. We desire, at the present moment, merely to show the in consistency of those who advocate and en eourugo the nefarious Quack Medicines, oonnuonly called Patent Medicines. «If a man offers the community any sort of spirituous liquors at three or six cents a glass, it is tbe fashion of the day to call him a rum seller , and to pour upon his head all sorts of curses and abuses. We are not prepared to say that we will turn rum seller,"and retail "double distilled damnation," as John Barleycorn " is eu phoniously styled by teetotalers ; but we do say that wc would as soon retail grog, un der its own name, and believe rum selling to be as honorable as the pressing of Bitters upon tbe community. (Tür newspapers filled with an nouncements of Bitter;, which unblush ingly claim for the respective articles whose merits they set forth, tho virtues of celestial drinks. The proprietors of the ** Bitters " manifest either their own igno rance or thei r contempt for that of tho community, by naming their Nostrums Oxygenated Bitters . Any child, who has studied the simplest elementary chem istry, ought to know that this is a hum bug. trange to say, the most rampant tem perance men, aud those preachers who have been most violent in their denuncia tions of rum sellers and rum drinkers, most frequently found as endorsers of Pa tent " Bitter«." It is a crime to sell good, genuine Brandy, or first-rate Whiskey, or to take a glass of Old Jamaica, sip ot tart Cider; but it is no crime to in duce your neighbor to swallow pints of Alcohol , made bitter with a little Quaasia or Gentian The old toper takes his " bit ters " or bis 44 tod " j there is no humbug about the matter ; he wants stimulant and he takes it Your very temperate man— your sleek individual, who screams out— " Liquid Poison -*touch not, taste not, handle not 1 " is the foremost in the rank of venders or endorsers of some alcoholic stimulant, under the name of Bitters.— Wo like things oalled by their right names; say, therefore, that the temperanoe man who indulges in " Bitters," is only taking his cock-tail under tho name of Medicine; aud the Maine Law man who certifies to the efficacy of Alcoholic Mix tures, only betrays bis ignorance and in consistency. His ignorance, inasmuch as he don't know what good drink is ; his in consistency, in condemning one form and reoommending another form of alooholio beverage. B 11 even a If you want a drink, use the very best Bt audy, or Whiskey, or Malt Liquor. Do not cheat your stomach by buying dollar Brandy or fifty-cent Whiskey! If you want a drink, be "honest aboutit— take a drink ] don't take Bitters. * " ■ » — - ■ A MODEL BOOK-BUYEtt.
