Wedded Love. [The following ba.« been, probably, written by • epiritcd old bachelor.] JEST AFTER MARRIAGE. Let whistling winds in fury blow, Of coming clouds and storms foretelling : Let fallen leaves and fallen snow Be capering round my little dwelling ; It matters not a whit to me. My heart is light as tiny feather ; I’ll be content and happy be, While I and Betsy dwell together. I find her such a loving wife. So angel-like, so unassuming ; So blithe and gay, so full of life, With cheeks as red as roses blooming ; She is so good—so kind to me— She speaks so pleasant and so clever, I’m sure we ne'er would disagree, If she and 1 should live forever. A WEEK LATER. One week elapsed--and what a change Comes o'er the spirit of my dreams ; My Betsy's actions are so strange, X© one can tell how odd it seems. She says she's “ born for higher spheres Than patching clothes and washing dishes, She claims •• her rights.” and I have fears I’ll have to gratify her wishes. She writes and reads the whole day through, And worse than all she's getting jealous ; Mow, what on earth it’s best to do— What course to take, will some one tell us? ANOTHER WEEK I.ATER. O for a lounge in some thick wood! Some lonely spot I'll seek for quiet; I’ll write my life, (if understood.) Some mortal man may profit by it. I've been abused and knocked about— Been blowed up—jawed without discretion, And from my house she’s turned me out, That 1 might know she claimed possession. THE LATEST. Whereas, my husband. Josiali Wilson, has left my bed and board without any just cause or prov ocation, I hereby forbid all persons harboring or trusting him on my account, (ahem!) as I shall pay no debts of his contracting. Betsy Maria Wilson. —♦* » Tau. Talking—The Yankee Navy to be Si nk by a single Broadside—John Bi ll’s Army in Canada—The Sea-board Cities to be rsED vi'!—The Dmly Telegraph lias more than once, on the Central American ques tion, thrown oil ui>on the troubled waters; and our articles have been circulated and re printed from Maine to Louisiana, from the East to the far West (!!!) But we regret to perceive that the words of those who wished well to America have been grossly misunderstood and wilfully mis-mterpreted; otherwise we would not read in American journals such trash as that, if a war broke out between Great Britain and the United States, the people of England would rise rn masse and hurl from power the Ministry who would declare hostilities. This is purely ri diculous, and it behooves our American friends, in time, to hesitate ere they give credence to so palpable an absurdity. The citizens of the United States arc resting on a broken reed, if for one moment they im agine that the manly spirit of Englishmen has fled to the abode of recreant aiid ener vated decrepitude. Has the conduct of our soldiers in the Crimea given cause to Ameri cans to fancy that they can pluck our beards with impunity? Rather, should not the re newed brilliant evidences of the matchless courage (!) of England’s sons make nations quail ere they presume to cross steel with our stalwart valor? We have not degener ated. Effeminacy has not entered our blood. Our veins circulate the pure tire of nncouquerable devotion to our country.— Our army and our navy, crowned as they are with the fresh-plucked laurels of victory, are equal to any contest, and dread no euemy. Let us now calmly point out to our Amer ican brethren what we can and tliev cannot do, if a war breaks out. We picture our resources in no spirit of idle braggadocio, for Bunkum is foreign to the necessities of a great nation, but rather are our words to l>e accepted as a manly and courteous warn ing. It is after this for America to decide whether she will cope with us or not. It lias been taken for granted by a large pro portion of the American press that England in a land contest would be powerless upon the American continent. This is a grand mistake, and we hasten to correct so pal pable an error. Say that war lias broken out—take this for granted—then on the American continent would be the only scene of lund operations. We do not, however, presume to talk of an invasion inland. That is absurd; we would have no chance. The light would be upon the frontiers of our British North-American Provinces. Ours would be, on shore, a defensive campaign. The Americans say, declare war, and the Canadas are ours. We deny m tolo this as sertion. It is, doubtless, very encouraging for America to believe so, but it is far-fetched in reality. We have in the British Prov inces a population of above 3,000,000; of these fully 345,981 are of an age to bear arms, and are mustered in the militia. The militia of the Canadas and maritime prov inces number, in fact, a grand total of above 400,000 men by the last census, and is thus subdivided: In Lower Canada into 30 regi ments, forming 173 battalions and 137,709 men; iu Western Canada there are 34 regi ments, comprising 100 battalions and 122,- 620 men; to this force is attached a regi ment of cavalry, 11 companies of artillerv, and a regiment of rifles; the militia of New Brunswick consists of 1 regiment of cavalry iu 10 troops, 3 detached corps of irregular cavalry, 1 regiment of artillery, 18 regiments of militia, and some rifle corps, comprising a grand total of 1030 sergeants, and 27,260 rank and file; the militia of Nova Scotia numbers 50,000 men; the militia of Prince Edward s Island 7302 men. Our militia is one of the finest upou the North American continent; whereas, the American militia, as far as discipline and or ganization is concerned, chiefly exists upon paper. Throughout the British Provinces are large numbers of military pensioners, in valuable as a point d’appui for regimental organization. There ure also hundreds of retired British officers from the regular ar my, whose professional experience is above price. Every regiment of Canadian militia would contain fully twenty ) er cent, of dis ciplined officers. And, mark, discipline w ill decide a frontier war. Independently of these resources, numerically, England has, during the last few years, not been behind baud iu organizing her militia. Prior to the proposed withdrawal of a large portion of our regular regiments, a plan was druwu up by an officer of experience in the Provinces for the reorganization of the provincial army. This plan embraced the formation of garri son corps and fenciblc battalions, and has been acted upon in Canada, and, in fact, forms the groundwork of the present organi zation of the Canadian militia. The chief towns in the Canadas now possess those corps, and in efficiency and discipline, they are second to none on the American conti nent. We have shown that we possess an efficient, irctl-afficered militia of 400,000 men. We can send to Cnnada, from the United Kingdom, within six weeks, 50,000 bayo nets—our embodied militia, equal to regu lars, could furnish alone that quota —and G000 from the West India command. Our artillery is one of the finest in the world; and thus, with 450,000 men, militia and reg ulars, we can defy any attack from the American lines. The prospect of a Euro pean peace is so great that we can also al most count 80,000 men from the Crimea in addition to the above. In a campaign of invasion, the enemy must bring their com missariat of supply with them. We are on the defensive in our own country, with am ple supplies. We have railways extending from Quebec to Western Canada, and in twenty-four hours we could move a large army to any given point. The Americans could not take us by a coup <le main. Our telegraph wires place every point of the Provinces in immediate contact. In Canada an American army would be thrashed toils heart’s content. It could not live twelve hours across the frontiers. Brag and Bun kum is one thing; but discipline is quite another element, and in that respect we are pre-eminently superior. Canada is safe.— Let Americans ponder over this fact, and at once give over all their nonsensical rliodo montade about an invasion of our Provinces. We have shown what the Americans can not do; now we will point out what we can do. Our Navy is the most powerful that iloats. In ships, guns, calibre, and men, uc am sweep the. Ocean frcm the Arctic tu the Torrid Zone from the Atlantic to the l'a cific. Never before in England’s history did Brittannia more thoroughly rule the waves. The Ameriam seaboard is ours. We could annihilate their commerce. As to their Navy, it is absurd to talk of it; the Ameri cans themselves confess that we could blow it out of the water in one broadside. Then, how are the Atlantic States situated?— There is not one city, from Passamaquoddy Bay in the North to Galveston Bay in the South, which has water enough to float a frigate, or gun-boat, that we cannot batter to the ground in twenty-four hours. The following cities in the United States are comparatively at our mercy after war is once declared: Portland, Maine; Ports mouth, New Hampshire; Boston, Massa chusetts; Newport, Rhode Island; New Ha ven, Connecticut ; New York, Brooklyn and Jersey City, with the towns on Long Island Sound; Baltimore, Maryland; Carolina, St. Augustine, and Apalachicola, Florida; Mo bile, Alabama, und Galveston, Texas; while San Francisco is the certain prize of our Pacific squadron. Independently of our vast military re sources in our thoroughly loyal provinces, we must not forget that we can command the Lakes. We could dispatch a powerful fleet of steamers and gun-boats up the St. Law rence to Quebec, und from thence, via Mon treal and the Rideau Canal into Lake On tario, through the Welland Canal into Lake Erie, and via Detroit and Lake St, Clair into Lake Huron. To lessen the draught of water, the lieuvy guns, our U2 and lix pounders, und chief stores of shot und shell, could, if necessary, be sent per rail from Quebec to Canada West, there to be reship ped at our Lake ports on board our men-of war. Thus we could swoop the Lukes, and every American town and villi ge from Mackinaw, Michigan, to Oswego, Lake On tario. if war was declared, our fleets would at once appear before the chief of the At lantic cities, Boston, New York, and Charles ton—indicate that the first American sol dier has crossed the Canadian frontiers, and these towns would be battered to the ground, and Canada will be safe for a generation to come. And, doubtless, such would be our policy. In the above details of our military and naval operations, we have not referred to the condition of the Southern States. Can any reasonable man believe that, if a war broke out and with the command we will have of all the southern ports, the slaves, w ho go through lire und water, when oppor tunity offers to escape from their horrid bondage, will see St. George on the .Main, and not rise en masse to liberate themselves, and join the free standard of England? Our splendid West India regiments would soon discipline the slaves, and w'e hesitate not to assert that the war would result in the lib eration of three million fellow-creatures now held in the iron chains of slavery. Let us have a war, and the United will then lie come the dis-United States. The Republic will be at an end. II we are driven to war—for we are wil ling to avoid it by every honorable means in our power—we must go to work in right earnest! and we must say that, in a quar rel so unjustifiable ns is now attempted to be fixed upon us by an obscure politician, such as General Pierce, for his own political advancement, severity will be mercy, for w'e will thereby place an effectual tourniquet upon the effusion of human blood. Let our Ministry act with promptitude, for the time has nearly arrived for them todoso, and we will have no war. Let us hesitate much longer, and the too greatest nations on earth will be up to the arm-pits in human gore. ■Strike for peace through war, at once. No longer hesitate or argue: our cause is just, and demands that the United ■States shall at once renounce all preposterous claims, or our fleets will appear in American waters, lid Lord Palmerston now act in this great emergency with courage and fearlessness, and England, to a man, will back him.— Tendon Daily 'Telegraph, l\b. 24 th. ■ n » ■ A Uaity I* irksjde.—Home is the resi dence not merely of the body but of the heart; it is a place for the affections to un fold and develop themselves; for children to love, and learn, and play in; for husband and wife to toil smilingly together, and make life a blessing.

The Medical Faculty of the principal cities of Europe were compelled to acknowledge its wonderful mastery over disease. Proprietors of other Medicines, jealous of its sway, vainly endeavored to stay its onward progress. Like grass before the mower, their efforts fell to the ground; and like lire on the prairies, its onward march became triumphant. It stood forth upon its own merits; a discerning public saw, tried, and were convinced of its magical virtues. The mas sive fortune nccpiired by Dr. l’areira from the sale of it during the six years he prepared it, alone bore witness to its miraculous merits. At the de cease of the Doctor, tin 1 recipe was heqeathed to his son. who has lately introduced the remedy in to the Unitid States. The number of cures it has already made are astonishing. Thousands and tens of thousands can bear testimony to its efficacy. ALL WHO USE IT, IT WILL CURE! With the safety, speed, and certainty uo other medicine lias ever possessed. RESORT TO NO QUACK NOSTRUMS! Use u remedy that has been tried for the last fifty years, and was never known to fail. BEWARE OF COUNTERFEITS!! The extensive sale of this wonderful medicine has already caused some persons, to palm off up on ttie unsuspecting, a spurious compound close ly resembling the original. Be particular to buy none without the written signature of A. Pareira, M. I)., ori the outside wrapper of each bottle. All others are counterfeit, and their compounders will be punished with the utmost rigor of the law. Price Three Dollars per bottle. For sale by D.
