Prominent among them are Sarsaparilla and Wild Cherry, so united as to act together ; the one, through its ad mixture with other substances, purifying and purging ; while the other is strengthen ing the system. Thus these Pills are at the same time a tanic and a cathartic, a desider atum long sought fo-- by medical men, but never before discovered. Ia other words, they do the work of two medicines' and do it much better than any two we Know ot, for they remove nothing from the system but impurities, so that while they purge they also strengthen and hence they cause no debility and are followed by no reaction DR. TUTT'S PILLS have a wonderful in fluence on the blood. They not only purify without weakening it, but they remove all noxious parties from the chyle before it is converted into fluid, and thus makes impure blood an titter impossibility. As there is no nausea or sickness attending the operation of this most excellent medicine, which never strains or tortures the digestive organs, but causes them lo work in a perfectly natural manner ; hence persons taking them do not become pale and emaciated, but on the con trary, while all impurities are being remov ed, the combined action of the Sarsaparilla and Wild Cherry purifies and invigorates the body, and a robust state of health is the re sult of their united action.

C, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY THE L FRIDAY, FEBEUAEY 6, 1874 HAM) AUD HEART. s One evening, in tie year 1520, a woman, t nveiopcl ii a long black mantle, w;is walking towards the bridge of the Rial'o in Venice. Lllifiteps were weak and uneven, ar.il, at intervals, she looked around with a hurried, frightened glance. She paused on the centre of the bridge, and looked down with a shudder on the clear,blue waters of the Adratic ; then closing Iter eyes, and murmering faintly, " Antonio ! inj, Antonio ! Adieu !" she prepared to- throw herself over the parapet. Just as she was falling a man rush ed forward, seized her with a pow erful grasp, and drawing her back, said, " Girl ! destroy not thy life which Providence has given thee. If you are unhappy, enter your church, kneel ou its hallowed pave ment, pour out your" sorrow,! and thank your Maker that yoii , have been preserved from crime from rushing uncalled into His pres ence . The girl impatiently tried to shake off theJ strong,': kind hand that held her, and. said,.' Let me go ! I must die J" t In another moment she tottered and fell to the ground, where she lay without sense or motion. Iler preserver raised; her head,, and In order to give her air, drew back the veil which concealed her fea tures. They weffr very loYely, and the man gazed on her with wonder and admiration as she was grad ually restored. f ; By degrees she told him who she was and where she lived. Her history might be summed up in a few words: au avaricious - lather, a poor mother,' a mutual but un happy love-- -J ; Vainly did Maria plead" with her father, a rich innkeeper of Venice, the cause of her lover, Antonio Barbarigo ; the handsome gondlier plying beneath the Bridge of Sighs, At length this evening, her father. Gianettini, forgot himself so far as to strike bis daughter with some violence : and 8he, with a far more culpable neglect of her duty, ran wildly from home, and, as we have seen, was arrested just on the verge of committing suicide. The person who had saved her led her gently to her home, and, having given her up to her father seated himself in an obscure corner of the hostelry. Gianettini re ceived his child with rude reproach es, and, bidding her retire to her own apartment and betake herself to her spinning, he cast u suspi cious glance at the person who had brought her home, whose stout, manly figure and firm countenance, however deterred the innkeeper from addressing :. him in a hostile manner. , , As Maria turned to depart a gondolier appeared at the door, and furtively approaching har, said in a low voice : Dearest ! dearest I Gianettini rushed forward, shout- ing, ' tjut ot tins : out oi my nouse, fellow! "The young men did not stir. Have you finished ?" he said, in a jrood humorod tone. " Where fore these hard words ? Have vou never loved, Signor Gianettini Have? you totully forgotten the feelings of your youth ? Know you not that, since I was ten years old and Maria five, we have loved each other fondly ? Will you not, then, allow us to hallow your old age with our tears ?" " I doa't want to have parcel of beggsrs for my children," said Gianettini, roughly. ' Beggars !" replied the young man ".You surely forget your self." - ."Not I, indeed," returned the father. , " I refuse my consent. Therefore get you gone !" " But hear me for one moment," pleaded the gondolier. " 'Tia useless. I again repeat that such as you shall never wed my daughter. Your position is too mean." ' Certainly you are rich," re plied the young man, " but what hinders that I should not become so too ? A stout arm, a brave heart, an honest soul, will, with help of Heaven, do much." A fool's dream !" "Nay," said Antoio, "it is sober sense. Prince Lorenzo de Medici was a merchant; Duke Giacooco Sforza, a cowherd' The man in the corner had heark ened attentively the dialogue, He rose, and touching Barbarigo's shoulder, said, . " Well spoken gon doner I Courage brings success and struggles conquest. Maria shall be thy wife !" . ',' Never!" cried Gianettini. " Master Jew." said the un- known,' turning disdainfully towards him, "if this youth could lay down six, hundred pistoles, would you object to the marriage : f Be that as it may, you must remember that he is now little better than a pauper."- f 1 3 "Pshaw1." said the unknown; ." babbles are more tiresome thieves. ;; Before . tomorrow shall handle that sum." . than you So saying he drew from pocket a piece of parchment and his j crayon, and turning towards a table began rapidly to sketch a man's hand. It was represented onen. impatient, with hollowed palm, as a 4 if expecting a shower of gold pieces It had, so to speak, a sensuous, avaricious expression; and one of the fingers was encircled with a massive ring. I Tis my hand," cried Gianettini. -And yoar history," said the artist. : y . - 4 Giving the -sketch to Antonio, its author desired him to carry it to Pietro Benvols, librarian at the Palace of St. Mark, and demand in exchange for it six hundred pis toles. " Six hundred fools' heads !" cried the innkeeper. " I would not give a zechin for it," Without speaking the artist turned haughtily away. The gondolier took the parch ment, and looked with astonishment at its guise. He then turned doubtfully towards Maria; but a glance from her soft dark eyes reassured him, and he set out on his mission. With folded arms and a moody brow the artist commenced pacing up and down the large room in the hostelry, easting at intervals a scrutinizing glance on the young girl, who, now penitent for her in tended crime, was silently praying in a corner. As for Gianettini, he seemed unable to shake off the strange ascendancy gained over him by his unknown visitor; his habitual effrontery failed him; end, for the first time in his life, he dared not break silence. An hour passed. Then hasty, joyous Bteps were heard, and Antonio appeared bearing in his band a bag and a letter. The bag contained six hundred pistoles and the letter was addressed to the artist, and prayed him to honor the sender with a visit. " Take these coins and weigh them," said the unknown, as he threw the bag towards Gianettini. r Antonio Barbarigo stood before his benefactor, pale and trembling with joy. " One favor more," he said "Who are you !" " What does it matter?" " What does it matter ! say you?" cried the gondolier; "much much to me ! Tell me your name, signor, that I may love and honor it to the last moment of my life." " Men uall me Michael Angelo." " It is my turn now," he said, "to ask you a favor. It is to per mit me to perpetuate on canvass the lovely features ot Maria." The girl approached; she could not speak; but she clasped the painter's hand and raised it to her j lips. A tear fell on it; and Michael Angelo, as he drew it back, turned away to cenceal his own emotions. Twenty years pased on and found Antonio, the once humble gondolier, the happy husband of Maria, and General ot the Venetian Republic, Yet his brilliant position never rendered him unmindful of his early life, andhis heartfeltgratitude, as well as that of his wife, accom panied Michael Angelo Buouarotti to the end of his days. As to the crayon sketch of the wiser's hand, it was taken from Italy by a soldier in Napoleon's army, and plnced in the Louvre. During the invasion of 1814, it was unfortunately lost, and so far as can be ascertained, has never since been recovered. The storv of the production, however, still lingers amongst the traditions ot Venice. Winter. BY 1IEN11Y WARD BEECH ER. The North has broken loose.

But what about poor drivers, out sixteen, hours a day, on an omnibusbox, or crossing a wind - swept stage-router What about poor little errand-boys, half-clad, without mittens, and holds in their shoes i What does a sewing-girl enjoy of the sublimities of winter up in her garret, with the ther- mometer at zero, and the coal all out, and clothes thin, and work scant, and friends far away, and a half-fed body too feeble to generate much heat : Ah, yes splendid weather ! says the engineer, snug in the machine- room, warm and sheltered, fine weather ! says the blacksmith, at his glowing lorge; says the miner, as, like a marmot, he dives into the mine; says the rosy old fellow, made round and red with beef, pork and wine; says the spectacled matron, looking from her wind-tight parlor. But what do crying children, hungry and half-clad, think ? What do their parents, made cross by too little meat and too much whiskey, think? What do you think, Robert, when you make a little burst on the road against the wind, it blowing twotwenty and you going two seventeen? What do welKinten- G, 1874. tionel folks think that arranged in the mild afternoon to start before day-liirU the next mornins. aud wake to find the thermometer almost bottomless, but the start to be made, nevertheless ? What do tender-eyed Lvahs think of the brilliant white nnow, from crystal of which the sun shoots sharp rays of light into her eyes, as if the ground was an infinite' paper of pins and needles, and every breath of wind a bowman shooting them in.o her eyes ? What do school boys think that sleep in the attic, and bounce out of bed at the breadfast call, to squeal in the pungent air, and rush into., their clothes in one-tenth the time requir ed in summer? What do crooning hens and ostentations roosters think as they huddle on the southside of shelter ing hedges, or barns, and .stand hungry rather than be blown about by the tail-dishevelling wind ? And poor shivering horses, hajf-fed and wholly uncombed ? and crurapled-up cows, that hump their backs and cower under any convert that will break the sharp thrusts of the despotic wind? Ah, what splendid weather ! say the sheep, cudding together in welts of fine wool. What glorious weath er ! say the gulls, sailing high up, and sporting with the wind as if, like an old friend from the far North, it had come to make a friendly call, and renew the acquaintance of last summer. And I ? Why, I rejoice in winter be cause it makes the thought of sum mer sweet; it coats my windows with etchings beyond tny artist's skill; it gives to my home, and corner, a sweet security and joyous peace, which needed the cold out doors as a background. Nevertheless, letters have just come in from Florida. They are picking flowers there is no cold in their sky the gardens .are all asprout, the air is fragrant with bursting buds and new leaves, birds shower the air with delicious notes ! Yes, I do love the winter dearly, but had rather take it in Florida ! -New York Ledger. Substance of the Address Hade by Dr. Hoge at the Union Meetiug of the Sunday Schools of all Denominations ia the Fiist Baptist Church, Richmond, on Sunday afternoon December 7th. The gathering of so large an audience on an evening chill and gloomy like this though all is bright and genial within is indi cative of.the interest which is felt in Sabbath School work, and also of the increasing disposition, every where so manifest in our day, among Christian people of different denom inations fraternally to cooperate in enterprises of common benevo lence. If I was asked, what is one of the most striking characteristics of our time, I would not hesitate for an answer. I would say, it is the fact that while there was never more denominal zeal and aetivity than now, there is at the same ;ime a growing desire to recognizj and to exhibit the essential unity that binds together the several branches of the Christian family in the bonds of one holy brotherhood. There is an i uprising and advancing tidal wave 1 of gospel charity which I trust will ' continue to rise and flow on, until i it sweeps away the bigotry, and I intolerance, and exclusi-ness which j have so lon deformed aud degrad I ed the Church. j But there arc some things which this wave will not sweep away.-?' Qur conscientious adherence to different forms of Church govern ment, to different modes of worship, to different doctrinal standards, will remain, and ought to remain, until in God s light we see light, and attain to a more perfect apprehen sion of revealed truth than we now possess. But honest diversities of opinion with regard to ecclesiasti cal organizations and doctrinal creeds, are not inconsistent with true Christian unity. Such unity can never be purchased by the sac- 1 rifice of principle Absolute in difference to truth would indeed produce a flat and dead uniformity, but no healthful, vital unity. Even the tumultuous waves of controversy are to be preferred to what Carlyle calls " the Dead Sea of indifferent ism." Better that our churches stood apart like the river rock, forming opposing cliffs, than per mit the integral parts to be mingled together like the loose and level sand, with neither attraction nor repulsion between the particles. But those who are loyal to their own conviction, and who know how to prise their liberty to interpret God's word for themselves, will be the first to concede the same sacred right to others. They will not as sume a hostile attitude to others for claiming a privilege which they themselves find precious. lhey will not misrepresent the views or ridicule the modes of worship which others have concientiously adopted. Under all outward differences of form they will delight to recognize the oneness of spiri; which pervades every true branch of the great family of God. They will rejoice in the fact 'that whatever is 'most precious in . rclevation ,aud iin the dispensations of grace,, constitutes the corn mon inheritence of all. be lievers. What ilenorninattontvfoul(t concontra toy i f ff etfnld," the beams of the Suaiof: Righteousness uponl useii, and leave the rest. 01: Chris tendom in . chill, bleak -fchadow jf -What denomination would hide j be-, hind its 'own partition" walls the dear," sad Cross on which Jesas suffered, when Tie ToWtlTIienjHacT and gave Himself ' for it '( What denomination would monopolize the quickening, Comforting Spirit which broods oyer he cntir company f the redeemed, even jvs -the. atujps phere encirclesj srnt embraces the world"? No: all deriving spiritual life from the same divine source all subdued by the mournful glories and pathetic teachings of the same wondrous Cross; all pressing, on together' amid common dangers, infirmities and sorrows, " though rude and stormy scenes" to the j promised the rest in the same happy and eternal home,'thejoy of each is enhanced by the assurance that the same supports, the same guidance, the same inheritance is common to all: and it is no unmeaning clause of a cold creed, but the 'expression of a sweet and thrilling experience which induces all together exulting ly to proclaim, I believe "in" the" Communion of Saints." And when this spiritual unity finds utterence in . the Hymnology dear to the whole Church, we never stop to ask whether the song was composed by a man of this creed or or that, but as we bow down low under oar heavy load of guilt we say; " Show pity Lord.-G Lord forgive," Let a repenting rebel live ;" or when we taste the blessedness of the man whose sins are forgiven, how our hearts melt as we sing " Sweet the moments, rich in blessing, Which before the Cross I spend ;" or when we are overwhelmed with wonder at the rememberance of God's special, personal, unmerited mercy, we find no better expression of it than, "Amazing grace how sweet the souud, That saved a wretch like me ;" or when our souls leap up in the ardors of gratitude, glowing with the desire to make some return for the sacrifices of Him who purchas ed us with His own blood, what can we do but cry ; :' Bring forth the royal diadem, And crown him Loidof all." And when we set together as we do now in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, and in happy and harmon ious fellowship wjth one another, do we not find it good to make melody with heart and voice as once more we sing, " Blest be the tie that binds, Our hearts in Christian love."

In North and in South Carolina the present month must necessarily be one 01 great activity in garden ing, lie who is tardy now will be deficient in many comforts, which cost but slight effort, if that effrt be made at the right time and in the right way.

Another danger tr be apprehend ed from indiffereuce to politics is that one- ruight be mistaken for a nentrol man and a neutral man in politics is a nonentity. One would hardly know how to clas such a man as regards gender, as a he or she. Men may treat such an one with respect, but it is the sort of respect, which is felt for a woman. A neutral man is like a rooster. which leaves off crowing and struts ing and goes to klucking and sett ing; true, he is free from all harm, as not even the most abandonded rooster would strike him with hi3 "hack fathers up," but he secures immunity eolely . by adopting henish Avays. Extremes. There are extremes in all things, and, no doubt, this is a good ordi nation, for it is desirable that ex amples of every kind of conduct and every degree of station should be held up before the eyes of tho masses to lead and to warn ; for there is nothing in this world which dees not excite the disapprobation and contempt of humanity, when it is presented to them in its most extreme forms. To illustrate this truth concerning the worldly condi tion, we have only to point to the two pictures which adorn this and the opposite page, wherein poverty and riches are contrasted, and which shows that it is not good to be in the extremes of society. Great wealth tends to produce arrogance ; great penury to produce envy. The very rich are apt to feed too luxuriously and indulge in other excesses injurious to health ; the very poor too sparingly, and in case where " better days " have been seen, often shun those who would relieve. A very exhalted station is attended with care and exposes to tremendous errors ; a very lowly station deprives of self respect and makes all regardless of the public or general interest. It is best to bo in one of the medium statioud, where "one is neither rich enough to be 4 arrogant, nor poor enough to be envious; neither too much tempted to luxury, nor stint ed of needful aliment.
