AIR-'VV/ic Wore a Wreath of Roses." He bore a patent coffbe-pot the day when first we met, ■ And peddled tins from door to door, In weather cold and wot: He had a very scarecrow look. Methlnks I si o him now— No vest, torn punts, worn boots, stained ..at-an old Iml on bis brow, But once again I saw blm-a carpet bag he bore- He slouched on a propeller tug, bound for the Southern shore; He looked hall-starved and hopeless, and with an abject air He pleaded with tlie captain's clerk to pass him for half fare. The next time that I saw him, 'twas in the South"! n land, Surrounded by a ragged crowd, a woolly pated band; He stood upon a barrel, and he cursed the Southern white, And called • ach Pontpcy brother dear, each lliunah bis delight. And yet once more I saw him, no signs of want were there, Iv fashion's jarb he w_ arrayed, and pom pous was his air; His checks were standing out with fut, his purse WBS tilled with gold, As Gov-enior i\« robbed the whites—the ne groes be had sold.

Calisaya or King's Baik was unknown until the middle of the 17th century. Humboldt makes favorable mention of its febrifuge qualities as an antidote to Fever and Ague, Intermittent and Malarious Fevers, in his extensive South American travels. In 1640 it was used by the Jesuits, who alone at that time possessed the secret of its wonderful tonic properties, and it was sold by them for its own weight in silver. In 1658, eighteen years after, Sir John Talbot employed it with great success in France in the treatment of Fever and Ague, Dyspepsia, Nervous Affections, Loss of Appetite, Weakness and Debility, Palpitation of the Heart, Diarrhoea, etc. In 1679 he sold the secret of its origin to Louis XIV, by whom it was divulged. It is now the. all important ingredient in Drake's PLANTATION BITTERS, and preserved as it is in pure St. Croix Rum, makes atonic of rare merit, and one that should be upon the side-board of every family. Messrs. P. H. Drake & Co., the sole proprietors of the celebrated PLANTATION BITTERS, are the largest importers of Calisaya Bark in America The Bark is gathered and cured under the immediate supervision of an agent sent out to Brazil, expressly for that purpose, and aside from a few thousand pounds which are sold to the manufacturers of Quinine, is all used in the preparing of these Bitters, to which they are indebted for their wonderful success as a tonic. -I The above cut represents the natives in their own native forest gathering the Bark.
