Happy he to whom kind heaven,
Rich ingrare, a wife hath given,
Virtuous, wise,and formed for love,
Gentle, guileless as a dove.
I.< t him I hank his God for this,
Pure overflowing cup of bliss ;
Pain may never linger near,
With auch a friend to soothe and cheer.
She, like moonlight, mild and fair.
Smiles away each gloomy care—
Kisscss dry man's secret tears,
And with (lowers his path-way cheers.
W hen his boiling heart heaves high,
Plashing fire from out his eve,
When kind friends seek in vain,
Passions wild career to rein,—
Then her gentle step is near !
Softly drops her soothing tear,
As when evening dew comes down,
On the meadow scorched and brown.
Some have sought their bliss in gold !
Some for fume their peace have sold!
Gold and glory in the hand,
Grumble Hke a hall of sand.
Ilenven sends man the faithful wife !
Life without her is not life !
And w hen life is o'er, her love ;
Gilds a brighter scene above.
Sugar Cane in Florida.
Cnpt. Sailler of this vicinity has produ
ced, considering the circnmstanccs under
which it was grown, the most extraordin
ary crop of sugar on record; and as tiie facts
in regard to it, if generally known, may
lie extensively beneficial to tlie country
ut large, we shall proceed to enumerate <
them as wc collected them from hirn.
He has produced 251 hhds. of sugar
averaging 1000 lbs. from 105 acres of
cane, and has lost at least 50 hhds. by im
pe:feet grinding—having wrought neatly
his entire crop with two broken rollers,
w hich would not admit of sufficient pres
sure to extract the juice by 20 per cent.—
Another source of loss occurred in cutting
down from apprehension of frost about 00
acres of his best cane two months previous
to grinding it. The juice s'ood at the re
markable altitude of 12° of Team’s Sac
charometer, and the sugar is consequently
of very superior quali'y. The yield of
molasses is about 15,000 gallons.
The circumstances which render this
crop extraordinary in this sugar clima e,
aro, that it grew on some of our ordinary
sandy hammock land, winch had been un
der a continuous cultivation of com and
cotton crops for a period of perhaps fifty
years, and was literally worn out as regards
these two objects of culture—being incapa
ble of producing live bushels of corn or 50
lbs. of seed cotton per acre : and what ren
ders this crop still more remarkable is the
fact, that a large portion of this land has
been five years consecutively in cane,
without any diminution in the annua! pro
duce under so severe a trial of its powers,
and without the aid of a particle of ma
It is a matter of every ilay expei ience
with us, that rich land in Florida—wheth
er virgin hammock, or land made fertile
bv the addition of manure—is eminently
adopted to the production of sugar cane,
but it remained for the enterprise and
perseverence of Capt. S. to demonstrate
to us tbe practicability of growing this des
irable object of culture profitably on ex
hausted old fields, five years in succession,
not only without any diminution, but with
a manifest improvement in the yield.
This presents a strong practical argu
ment in favor of a rotation of crops, and
forcibly establishes the inherent but hith
erto overlooked capabilities of out work
lands on tbe River St. Johns, by proving
that, however exhausted they may be by
an unintermitting succession of corn and
cotton crops, they strlV' tetain their pris
tine vigor in relation t'O' sugar cane.—

name to put up a Sardp&rilia, w hirh they call fir. Town
send's Sarsaparilla, denominating it ll f.-Y UI.S'E, Original,
etc. This Townsend is no doctor, and never was ; but was
formerly a worker on railroads, canals, and the like. Ye*, he
assumes the title of Hr., for the purpose of gaining credit for
what he is not. 't his is to caution the public not to be
deceived, and purchase none tun the (Ib.Jf U Iff E ORtOT
Sf.ll. OI.D Dr. Jacob Townsend's Sarsaparilla, having on
It the Old Ur's, likeness, his family coal of arms, and bia
signature across the emu of arms.
Principal OJice, 102 Sfassau-ct., -Yrte York City.
THE ORIGINAL DISCOVERER OF THE
Genuine Townsend Sarsaparilla.
Old Dr. Townsend i» now nbnnt 70 yearn of Her, and has
long boon known as the AUTHOR and DISCOVERER
of the GENUINE ORIOLY.IL “ TOWNSEND SAR
SATARIL/.A.' 1 Hein* poor, he was compelled to limit its
ti)&nuf;ict«re, by which menus it has been kept out of mar
ket, and the sales circumscribed to those only who had
proved its worth, and known its value. It had reached
the ears of many, nevertheless, as those persons who had
been healed of sore diseases, and saved from death, pro
claimed its excellence nnd wonderful
Knowing, many yean ago, that he had, by his skill,
science and cxpeiience, devised nn article which would lie
of incalculable advantage to mankind when the means
would be furnished to bring it into universal notice, when
its inestimable virtues would be known and appreciated.
This time has come, the means are supplied ; this
GRAND AJYI) UNEQUALLED PREPARATION
is manufactured on the largest scale, and is called for
throughout the length and breadth of the land, especially
as it is found inr:i|Nthle of degeneration nr deterioration.
Unlike young S. I*. Townsend's, it improves with age. and
never changes, but for the better: because it is prepared on
tcirntijic principles by a scientific man. The highest knowl
edge of Chemistry, and the latest discoveries of the art,
have all laen brought into requisition in the manufacture
of the Old Dr’s Sarsaparilla. The Sarsaparilla root.it is
well known to medical men, contains many medicinal pro
perties, and some properties which are inert or useless, and
others, which if retimed in preparing it for use, produce
fermentation and acid, which is injurious to the system
Some of the pro|»erties of Sarsaparilla are so volatile . that
they entirely evaporate and are lost in he preparation, if
they are not preserved by a scientific process, known only
to those experienced in its manufacture. Moreover, these
volatile principles, which fly off in vapor, or as an exhala
tion. under heal, are the very essential medical properties
of the root, which give to it all its value.
Any |»er»on can boil or stew the root till they get a flart
colored liquid, which is more from the coloring matter in
Ihe root than from any thing else; they can then strain
this Insipid or vapid liquid, sweeten with sour molasses,
md then call it •• SARSAPARILLA EXTRACT or SY
RL T P.” Ihit sat h is not the article know n ns tbe
GENUINE OLD DR. JACOB TOWNSEND’S
This is so prepared, that all the inert properties of the
Sarsaparilla root are first removed, every thing capable of
becoming acid or of fermentation, is extracted and rejected ;
then every particle of medical virtue is secured in a pure
and concentrated form ; ami thus it is rendered incapable of
losing any of its valuable and healing properties. Prepared
in this way, it is made the most powerful agent in the
Cure of innumerable diseases.
Hence the reason why we hear commendations on every
side In its favor by men, women, and children* Wc find it
doing wonders in the cure of
CONSUMPTION, DYSPEPSIA, and LIVER COM

IMPURITY OK THE BLOOD.
It possesses a marvellous efficacy in all coin plaints arising
from Indigestion, from Acid it y of the. Stomach, from unequal
circulation, determination of blood to the head, palpitation
of the heart, cold feet and hands, cold chills and hot Mushes
over the body. It has not its equal In Colds and Coughs ;
ami promotes easy expectoration and gentle perforation,
relaxing stricture of the lungs, throat, and every other part.
Rut in nothing is its excellence more manifestly 2>ceu and
acknowledged than in all kinds nnd stages of
It w orks wonders in cases of Fuor A/bus or IVhites. Fall
mg of tin IVomb , Obstructed, Suppressed, at Painful Menses,
Irregularity of the menstrual |ieriods, and the like ; and
is as etfectual in curing all the forms of Kidney Diseases.
Ry removing obstructions, and regulating the general
system, it givea tone and strength to iuo whole body, and
thus cures all forms of
Nervous diseases and debility,
and thus prevents or relieves a great variety of other mala
dies, as Spinal irritation, Neuralgia, St. Vitus' l)anct
Swooning. Epileptic Fits. Convulsions, &c.
It cleanses the blood, excites the liver to healthy action,
tones the stomach, and gives good digestion, relieves the
bowels of torpor and constipation, allays inllaiumation,
purifies the skin, equalises the circulation of the blood,
producing gentle warmth equally all over the body, and
the insensible perspiration ; relaxes all strictures and tight
ness, removes all obstructions, and invigorates the entire
nervous system. Is not this then
The medicine you pre-eminently need ]
Rut can any of these things be said of S. P. Townsend's
Infer.or article? This young man’s liquid is not to be
COMPARED WITH THE OLD DR'S,
because of one (iRANIi PACT, that the oue is LNCAFA
RLE of DETERIORATION, and
while the other DoHrf ; souring, fermenting, and blowing
the bottles containing it into fragments ; the sour, acid liquid
exploding, and damaging other goods ! Must not this horri
ble compound Ik? poisonous to the system ? IVhat! put
ccid into a system already diseased with acid! What causes
Dyspepsia but acid ? Do wc not all know that when food
sours in otir stomachs, w hat mischiefs it produces ? flatu
lence, heartburn, palpitation of the heart, liver complaint,
diarrhtea. dysentery, colic, and corruption of the b.ood 1
What is Scrofula but an acid humor in the body ? What
produces all the humor- w hich bring on Eruptions of tbe
Skin, Scald Head, Salt Rheum, Erysipelas, White Swell
lugs, l ever Sores, and ail ulcerations internal and external?
It is nothing under heaven, but an acid substance, w hich
tours, and thus spoils all the fluids of the body, more or
ess. What causes Rheumatism but a sour or acid fluid
w hich insinuates Itself between the joints and elsew here,
irritating and inflaming the delicate tis-ue* upon which it
acts ? So of nervous diseases, of impurity of the bliM*d, m
deranged circulations, and nearly all the ailments w hich
attlict human nature.
Now is it not horrible to make and sell, and infinitely
worse to use this
SOURING. FERMENTING, ACID “ COM
POUND” OK S. P. TOWNSEND,
ind yet be woulu fain have it understood that Old Dr. Jacob
Townsend's Genuine Original Sarsaparilla, is an IMITA
I’ION of his Inferior preparation !!
Heaven forbid that wc should deal in an article which
would bear the most distant resemblance to S. P. Town
lend’s article! nnd which should bring down upon the Old
Dr. such a mountain load of complaints and criminations
from Agents who have sold, nnd purchasers who have used
>. P. Townsend's FERMENTING COMPOUND.
We wish it understood, because it is the absolute truth,
that H. P. Townsend’s article and Old Dr. Jacob Town
scad’s Sarsaparilla are heaven-wide apart, and infinitely dis
timilar; that they are unlike in every particular, having
uot one single thing in common.
As S. P. Townsend is no doctor, nnd rover was. is no
chemist, no pharmaceutist—knows no more of medicine or
disease than any other common, unscientific, unprofessional
man. w hat guarantee can the pubiic have that they are re
ceiving a genuine scientific medicine, containing all the
vulries of the articles used in preparing it. ami which are in
capable of changes which might render them the AGENTS I
of Disease instead of health.
Rut what else should be exacted from one who know*
nothing comparatively of medicine or disease ! It requires
a person of some experience to cook and serve tip even a
common decent meal. How much more ini|iortnnt is it that
ihc persons w ho manufacture medicine, designed for
WEAK STOMACHS AND ENFEEBLED SYSTEMS,
should know well the medical properties of plants, the
best manner of securing and concentrating their healing
virtues, nDo an extensive knowledge of tho various diseases
which affect the human system, aud how to adapt remediei
to these diseases!
It is to arrest frauds upon the unfortunate, to pour halm
into wounded humanity, to kindle hope in the itespairing
bosom, to restore health and bloom, and vigor into the
r/u*lied and broken, and to banish infirmity that OLD DK.
JACOB TOWNSEND has SOUGHT and FOUND the op
portuuity and means to bring his
Gland Universal Concentrated
within the reach, and to the knowledge of all who need it,
that they tit ay learn nnd know, by joyful experience, its
Transcendent Bower to ileal.

Smith is a printer by profession, and is employ
ed in that office—he relates his experience, which
after all is the best criterion by which to jude
of the value of remedies. Advertisements and
high sounding statements may be set forth, and
thus give an ephemeral character and existence
to remedies, which when judged by this test
lose all their value, and become defunct; not so’
however, with those which have thus been test

them, we state what has occurred, nnd from that
deduce what may be expected. But to the com

S. J. Ray, Editor Georgia Telegraph :
Dear Sik : —While so many certificates of
individuals living off at great distances are ap
pearing in the papers commendatory of Bal
sams, Syrups, Fills and Powders, I think it but
right that medical research and superior success
of some of our practitioners at home should be
made known to our community, that those of
our neighborhood who are afflicted may not on
ly save their health but their money also, and at
the same lime encourage the efforts of those who
would give character and consequence tu this
section of the Union. 1 have been led to these
remarks by the teachings of my own expen.
About seven years ago I was attacked with a
disease oftlie liver and lungs, accompanied with
liceinorrliage or spitting of blood, with severe
and most liarrassing and distressing cough,cold
sweats of nights, with a wasting diarrhtcr, and
a great part of the time confined to my bed, and
so debilitated generally, that 1 could do hut lit
tle in the way of business 1 thus continued
for over five years, making every effort durin
tliat time to regain my health. 1 first applied to
lliepliyscians of Savannah, where I then resided
but their efforts failed to relieve me. I then
tried Houck’s Panacea for a long time then
VVistar’s Balsam of Wild Cherry,&c., till I had
spent hundreds of dollars in their purchase, and
still found myself as bad off ns before. I then
applied to your townsman, Dr. M. S. Thomson
who I am happy to say, after treating my case’
some G or 7 mouths, restored me to sound, and
I believe to permanent health, for I am now and
have been for tbe last 18 months in the enjoy
ment of uninterrupted health. This is my ex
perience, and 1 doubt not you w ill agree with
me in the opinion, that I have good reasons for
recommending the Doctor and his remedies in
cases ol this kind, far above the most eminent
physicians whose skill I hud tested, and the far
famed and much boasted balsams and panaceas
with which 1 had been dosed. Let others do
likewise, if they would lie cured, and that they
may not perish for lack of knowledge, 1 here
by request that you will give publicity to n.y
statement in your widely circulating sheet, and
much oblige yours, respectfully,
JOHN H. SMITH.
The following letters arc given, not so much
on account of the facts they contain, though tiicv
are important, as to give alt idea or specimen of
many of the same kind that are borne to tho
subscriber by almost every Mail from the North,

for publication, nnd are therefore the more to be
relied on, and appreciated.

I am much gratified in being able to announce
that iny son has got almost entirely well, so
much so, that all those symptoms of disease
have left him, hut the enlargement of the spleen
which has not entirely gone. To look at his
situation eight months buck, and to look ut him
now , it seems almost as one risen Iroin the dead.
I say to you, there is no more healthy looking
youth in all this county, indeed his w hole sys

of life. Hehas not taken any medicine for the

than before that time. 1 bad applied to Physi

benefit, but thanks to God, and gratitude to you
for Ins restoration. M v feelings are indeed ut).

Dr. M. S. Thomson,
Dear Hir : —lt is with pleasure that I write to
you, to inform you of the improvement of my
health. I have followed your directions os near
as I have been able, and I think 1 have not
missed the proper way far. The medicine is
nearly gone, and I feel like anew man. I have
not changed much in my appearance, but surely
in my feelings lam veil. 1 now can enjoy my
self with my family, my neighbors and even
myself; this world looks bright, and I feel hap
py in the anticipation of the future. lam en
tirely free from almost every symptom of the
disease with which I have been atllictcd. If
you think 1 had belter take some more medicine
to make sure of it, please send it and oblige.
Yours respectfully, \VM. W. WALKIJf
