THE 0XLT MOW MEDICINE
THAT AT TIIE SAME TIME

DR. TUTT'S PILLS are composed of
many ingredients. 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. Pice, 2-j cents

HAM) AUD HEART.
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
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,
"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
' Beggars !" replied the young
man ".You surely forget your
."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
' 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
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." .
So saying he drew from
pocket a piece of parchment and
crayon, and turning towards a table
began rapidly to sketch a man's
hand. It was represented onen.
impatient, with hollowed palm, as
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
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
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
" 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.
BY 1IEN11Y WARD BEECH ER.
The North has broken loose.
Down come the fierco winds with
frost-teeth, and rush and riot
around the house like myriad
wolves! Ah, yes beautiful win-
ter ! 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-
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,
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 !

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
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

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
" 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
" Blest be the tie that binds,
Our hearts in Christian love."

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.
