In remitting us money be sure to mention, at
the top of your letter, the name of the office at
which you receive the paper, and at the bottom,
write, in a plain hand, your own signature. In
directing your address changed, give usthename
of the office to which the paper is to be discon
tinued, as well as the one to which you desire it
changed. When you wish your paper discontin
ued, always address us a gentlemanly note, in
quiring the amount you are due for arrears, and
having settled that, your order will be promptly
executed. To refuse the paper at the post office,
when you wish it discontinued, is not the proper
course to be pursued. When a post master deems
it necessary to return a paper to the proprietor,
he should be very careful to write on the margin
the name of the office.
A strict observance of these suggestions, by
those to whom they are addressed, will save all
concerned a vast deal of unnecessary trouble, and
much annoying vexation.
SAUCT KATE AHD THE WIDOWERS AGAIN.
“Kate,” the saucy Poetess who created such
a stir among the widowers, by an address to them
through the columns of this paper during
the latter portion of last year, is out again in
this issue, with a reply to the numerous propo
sals received by her from that large and most
respectable body of sufferers, the widowers.
She received responses from almost everywhere,
and now she replies to them, all at once, or at
least to all whom she failed to answer by letter.
The reply will amply repay any one for a peru
sal, and we insist upon its being read by all. Its
ingenuity and easy flow are worthy of admira
On yesterday a greasy, monster-looking jug,
seemingly filled with old “tangle-foot,” made its
appearance in the door of our sanctum, and just
as we were about to make an onslaught upon it
with our shelalah, the bearer, our young friend,
T. B. Vesey, stated that it was a present from
Mr. F. 11. Coleman, of a gallon of superfine syr
up, called the “white drippings.” Did you ever
hear of it ? Did you ever see, taste or use it ? If
not, then you know nothing of the excellency
which is sometimes reached in the manufacture
of syrup, and we would advise you to go imme
diately to friend Coleman’s and lay in a small
quantity. He has just received one barrel of it,
and his liberal and unselfish heart prompted him
to compliment us with a full gallon. It is the
drippings refined, from the best clarified A sugar,
looks almo like honey, and is far superior to
anything we have ever seen in the way of syr
ups. Cos forthwith to Coleman’s and secure
some, for it is a rarity in Atlanta, and will soon
be sold. Price $1 25 per gallon. Our generous
friend need not be told that his favor was most
The Paper with the Largest Circulation in the State.
In our advertising columns, under the head of
“New Business,” will be seen an advertisement
from New York, in which inquiry is made after
a couple of men who emigrated from that State
to Georgia a great many years ago. The adver
tiser sent the notice to a gentleman ofColumbus,
it this State, requesting him to have it advertised
in the paper which has the largest circulation,
and he has forwarded it to the Crusader, with the
statement that “he knew ofno paper which creeps
into as many corners.” It is quite acompliment
to our paper; but while we may not have the
largest circulation of any of our cotemporaries, it
is perhaps more true than otherwise, that the pa
per is seen by as many, or more, people, owing
to the fact that it circulation is generally dis
tributed—confined to no section nor sections of
the State; but, as our friend says, “it creeps into
almost every nook and corner.” We have a very
fine circulation in Alabama—also in Florida,
Mississippi, Texas and South Carolina ; a few
copies go to almost every State in the Union.
our friends would labor in our behalf a very little ’
we might soon boast of a subscription list equal
to those of our leading northern papers.
But we wish to call special attention to
the advertisement above mentioned.
M- LEO TAYLOR.
This world-renowned Oriental Wizzard and
Ventriloquist, is now exhibiting his skill in leg
erdemain at the Athenium. He is among the
best we have ever seen, which, together with his
good humor and extreme politeness, make his en
tertainments decidedly attractive. We would ad
vise all to go and see his feats.
A HERCULEAN TASK.
Mr. J. J. Washington Hall, one
of our most thorough-going citizens, is having a
house built, we might say, for the especial ac
commodation of the Medical party to be given
in this city on the 13th of next monih. The time
from the commencement of the work to the time
at which the building will be called into requisi
tion, is but little more than three weeks, yet it is
to be completed, or else money is to be forfeited
by the contractor. They have about fifty hands
at work, and the house is going up as if by mag
ic; and judging from the progress made with it
in two days, it will be ready in ample time. This
is what we call rearing houses “with a rush.”
A NEW RAILROAD EXCITEMENT.
A couple of freight trains, one belonging to the
Macon and the other the Georgia Road, met on
the track, this morning, just at our street cross
ing, and each refused to back an inch—both con
tending for the “right of way.” A large crowd
collected around them, eager tosee the result. The
engines remained several hours in this statu quo
predicament, and would perhaps have stood there
a week, rather than compromise their stubborn
ness ; but our Marshals, assisted by sufficient
force, uncoupled a box-car from one of the trains
and pushed it back so the engine could switch off
on its own track, without requiring the other to
back. The difficulty was thus adjusted without
either engine giving way to the other.
The following warm expressions of encourage
ment, coming, as they do, from a high source and
altogether unexpected, are most gratefully appre
ciated by the editors of this paper:

POLITICS AND TEMPERANCE.
Again has the caldron of political agitation be
gan to boil and bubble. Throughout every por
tion of our country, theh eated ebnllition increases
and expands. Over it the ambitious demagogue,
and wire-working politician, bends, zealously
practising his incantations, and gloating with
deep inward delight at the success of his spells.
Soon each party will have chosen their standard
bearer, and arranged themselves rank and file un
der his banner. To promote the election ol their
candidate nothing will be left undone, which la
bor can accomplish, or intrigue effect. A great
crisis will soon arrive; one in which the prosper
ity, safety, nay the very existence of our govern
ment will be endangered. Political speakers of
every shade of opinion will canvass the land, de
claring that if the people do not vote as they say,
the country will be eternally ruined. And what
do they strive for in all this ? Any great good
which will be of lasting benefit to the country
and place its interests on a firmer basis ?
No; they strive for a mere nominal triumph for
their party, and appointments to offices in which
they can do as they please while their party is in
power. And to gain these little, petty, pitiful
ends, they strain every nerve exert every muscle,
leaving nothing untried to promote their cause.
What part or interest can the philanthropist take
in these movements ? Can he give his aid to in
crease convulsions, which are perilous to the
safety and fatal to ihe interests of society? He
should rather seek to still the tumult, to cast his
influence like oil upon the raging waters and in
duce men to think without passion or prejudice
of the subjects presented for their consideration.
He cannot, without the greatest inconsistency,
raise the hosanna of praise in the Temple of the
demagogue. He should stand aloof from the
popular excitement, nor let his voice be heard,
save in warning and expostulation.
If such be the only consistent course left for
philanthropists generally.it is so in a still higher
degree with Temperance men, who have banded
themselves together for a work of humanity and
love. It matters not to them which party tri
umphs in the contest; both are equally opposed
to them. There is nought which they can ex
pect to gain from the wiles of political intrigue.
As Americans, it is their privilege and duty to
vote as they think best upon all issues which are
presented to them; as temperance men, they
should labor without ceasing for the advance
ment of their cause. It is a deceptive sophism
that they should remain inactive, while political
agitation is extant. The interest of the cause
demands a continued and ceaseless vigilance on
the part ot its friends. We confidently believe,
that were they to cast all other considerations
aside, and labor with energy and perseverance at
all times, we would triumph and that right speed
We regret to learn says the Staunton, (Ya.)
Gazette, that a youth, named Geo. L. Walker,
son of a widow lady, residing in the State, met
with a sad accident, on Saturday last, while on a
gunning excursion, in Albemarle county. In
company with two or three fellow pupils of
Greenwood Academy, young Walker started out
to shoot a few birds, having in his possession a
gun, the cock cf which was in bad older. After
getting on the hill side, he discovered a dove be
low him, and started down to shoot it. The bird
flew before he got within gun-shot range, and he
was seen to raise his fowling-piece, but after
wards to lower it, and immediately thereafter an
explosion took place. One of his companions,
seeing his cap blown into the air, hastened to him,
and found that the shot had cut his chin and nose,
and, entering his forehead, had blown out his
brains, killing him instantly.
This noble youth and his amiable mother are
well known by many of the citizhns of Atlanta,
and they will deeply regret the sad misfortune
which has befallen him. His mother lived for
him alone, he being her only child—her whole
soul and all her tenderest affections were centered
in him ; who can but mourn, in view of these
facts, at her sudden and untimely bereavement ?
She had sent him to Virginia and entered him in
a high School, and from a letter written by the
teacher to her, he regarded him as an excellent
youth, good natured and a good scholar. We
very much regret the calamity—having had the
pleasure of a limited acquaintance with him and
his mother, and she certainly has our warmest
and most heartfelt sympathies.
THAT NEW DRUG STORE.
While hurrying up the street on yesterday af
ternoon, we accidentally dropped in, en passant,
with a friend, at the New Drug Store of Messrs.
Hunnicutt & Taylor, and goodness gracious,
save us ! We could but exclaim : In the name
of the whole heathen mythology, Esculapius and
his father Apollo, where are ive? We stood in
the prettiest, handsomest, tastiest, most suparb,
magnificent, beautiful, brilliant,shining,splendid,
resplendent, gorgeous, elegant, and artistic store in
the Southern country; and it was some little
time before we could realize the fact that we
stood in abuilding which belonged to Atlanta. It
was the case, however, and we venture the as
sertion that there is nothing in the way of a
Drug Store, this side of Philadelphia, that can
sustain any kind of a comparison with it. The
taste manifested by the proprietors in labelling
and arranging their bottles, is truly admirable;
and we opine it would be physically and morally
impossible for a sick person to enter this estab
lisnment without feeling healed from head to
foot. Let the monster, disease, but catch a sight
of this brilliant display of tinctures, opiates, et
cet, ready to be discharged at him, and like
Crocket’s Coon, he will crawl off without being
We were introduced to Mr. Collier the owner
of this city ornament, and could but draw a
painful contrast between his appearance and
that of his house. He wears cotton jeans, bro
gans, and his head and face are almost entirely
swallowed up in an old beaver-skin cap, which
has dpubtless served him for the last ten or fif
teen years. He has, however, a pleasant coun
tenance, loves money we are told, has a plenty
of it, and is no doubt a clever gentleman. His
tenants, Messrs. Hunnicutt & Taylor, are fine
specimens of mankind, in physiognomy, heart
and soul; they have a glorious Drug Store, and
we trust Jupiter will never strike it with his
thunderbolts, as he did Esculapius at the request
of Pluto, because of his restoring so many peo
ple to health.
INVITATIONS TO TEMPERANCE SPEAKERS.
We wish here to suggest an idea which will
be of great benefit to temperance organizations,
generally, and it relates to a matter, in regard to
which they have been universally negligent, and
for which they are deserving more or less of
censure. We allude to the fact of their omit
ting or refusing to defray the expenses of those
whom they invite io come and lecture or address
them upon the principles of their order. They
would willingly suffer a poor speaker to expend
what little money he may have, on the railroad,
in getting to them, and then exhaust his breath,
strength and talents, in pleading for the justice of
their cause, and urging them to greater exertions
in behalf of its promotion. This, all must ad
mit, to be wrong in fact, erroneous in policy, il
liberal in principle, and prejudicial to the inter
ests of the cause. Temperance speeches are
needed at all times, and they can always be ob
tained if the friends of the enterprise will mani
fest the right kind of liberality. We believe no
thing more is necessary than a simple suggestion
of this kind, to awaken the zealous advocates of
temperance to a proper knowledge of their duty
in the premises. Whenever you invite a speaker
to visit you for the purpose of giving you a talk,
alw'ays inform him whether or not, you are wil
ling and intend to relieve him from cost; for if
he be worthy of your attentions as a speaker, he
is worthy of such relief; and if he be a man of
business, and deficient in means, as temperance
speakers, are, almost universally, he is poorly able
to serve people abroad, at a heayy expense to
himself, pecuniarily, physically and mentally.
Will not our arguments upon this point be ap-.
predated? We hope so. And it would rejoice
us most wonderfully to hear of a grand celebra
tion by every temperance organization in the
Southern Country, during the Spring and Sum
mer. Go to work and get them up, and if you
have no good speaker in your midst, open your
purses and send out ior one. There are hun
dreds of them in Georgia, ready to serve you at
1 a moments warning.
THEE GEORGIA TEMPERANCE CRUSADER.
Prof. Wood’s Hair Restorative.
We call the reader’s attention to the advertise
ment of this great hair invigorator, in our columns
this morning. We find the following notice of it
in the Montgomery Advertiser, of March 7, 1859:
For the year past we have been advertising
Wood’s Hair Restorative, and month by month
its sale has gradually increased, until it now
commands a more ready sale than any other ar
ticle of its kind, giving in almost every instance
entire satisfaction. A clergyman, resident in a
neighboring town, who had for years suffered
from a burning sensation in the head, with an
occasional dry, itching humor, which prema
turely turned the hair gray, and iatterly causing
it to come oft'rapidly, leaving the crown nearly
bare, seeing the advertisement of the article in
the Advertiser, was induced to try it, and now,
after the use of two bottles only, his hair has
turned quite dark and is very soft, the scalp
clean, and the Recently bald spots covered with
a beautiful growth of silky dark hair, the sight of
which with his commendation of the Restorative,
will command an increased sale. We would
state to any who may wish to know, that we are
permitted, privately, to give the name of the indi
vidual to whose case we refer.
Ancient Human Relics. —Our English ex
changes of the last dates report the following :
Discovery of Ancient Human Remains. —An in
teresting discovery was made the other day on
the estate of Sir George Pampson.at Thurnham.
While some men were engaged in leveling a
chalk mound in a field, after digging to the depth
of about four or five feet, they found the remains
of a number of human beings lying in a circle, in
regular order, round the mound, with their heads
pointing to the centre, and the feet of others
meeting the heads of those placed in the outside
row-. The remains of a horse were also found
lying with them, but there were no relics of any
description to indicate to what people of a by
gone age they belonged. The bones were in a
remarkable state of preservation, considering the
length of time the bodies must needs have been
deposited there—certainly not less than fifteen
hundred years. The remains of seven bodies
were found in the space of about three rods, and
by far the greater portion of the mound still re
mains undisturbed. The place of ancient sepul
ture is situated but a short distance below the
ruins of the ancient fortification known as Go
dard’s Castle, from it having, as some authorities
tell us, been built by Godardus, a Saxon.
Mr. Seals: Allow me to give you a few re
flections from this agreeable little town, and if
you see proper you may turn them over to your
printer ; if not, why, blot them out.
I see that Valentine’s suggestion is called—a
happy idea—a timely one, and will be acted upon,
without fail, in such a strain of eloquence as to
lay your “booming temperance leader of last
week completely in the shade.” Thank you,
Mrs. Bryan. But Valentine feels too unworthy
to lay claim to the smallest degree of merit com
ing from the suggestion of any idea or argument
going to vindicate a temperance reform. His
only object was, to arouse a zealous adversary
in some department of the Crusader, who would
raise a flood-gate through which the filth of to
bacco, and “especially its modification of snuff,”
may be washed away; for I tell—but hold; it is
not my intention to lay any farther claim to the
afflatus that will blow away the poison that be
longs to the cursed practice of dipping; but I
gladly lay it down at the feet cf one Mrs. Bryan,
who is better capacitated to interest and benefit
your readers than myself.
But, Mr. Editor, here is what I took up my
pen to write: Since taking up the’ duties of my
work for the present year, I have been somewhat
astonished to find the people generally, of this coun
ty, living without the useful information impar
ted by a religious newspaper. How any man can
consent lor his family to be without a religious
newspaper, is an enigma to me. They have no
thing new and interesting, nor have they much
Shut me up in solitude, but, Messrs. Editors,
send me the newspapers and I will be a cosmop
olite. A man may live in the backwoods, and
walk miles to the post-office once a week for his
papers, and be as familiar with the literature and
business of the world as those carrying out its
operations; but why should a people, living on
a railroad as these are, live without religious pa
pers ? Ah! Mr. Editor, why ? Perhaps it is be
cause the leading ones do not enforce the precept
by the example ; perhaps it is because the mass
have grown cold, and want someone to present
the matter and arouse them up. Both I am do
ing, and have had good success in behalf of the
Southern Christian Advocate. But my Crusader
has a lonely travel, as no one but myself, in this
county, takes it. But why not? I have shown
the Crusader wherever I have gone, and all praise
it. I have not solicited subscribers, because lam
not its agent in this respect. If you would send
down an agent, he might do wonders. You
ought to send one. Send a gentleman—an intel
ligent man—a Christian— a good looking, good
temperance lecturer, and one who will please the
ladies, with his arms full of Crusaders, so that
lie may spread them broadcast, and I tell you his
commission will pay handsomely. Where is
“Uncle Dabney” ? Why cannot he come? He
can fill every qualification which I have mentioned.
He is a gentleman, intelligent, religious, good
looking and as good a temperance messenger as
you have ; tell him to take this in his schedule.
When I inform you that we quarrel, are pro
fane, drink, get drunk, fight and sometimes kill,
why do not back from us? When I give you the
name of our town, do not think us hopeless, for
we are not half as bad at home as our name is
abroad. Our people are a church-going people,
and if we can get them to lake a few more pa
pers, they will be more intelligent and religious.
They are willing to greet light and intelligence
from the East or any other source; should it
boom from the hellish precincts of Cincinnati,
they would make the best of it they could.
Now, Mr. Editor, I have a suggestion to make
to you. Ido not wish to assume a perogative
out of my line, by becoming your compiler in the
way of selecting subjects ; yet, it occurs to me
that there is a piece of material you would do
well to work on. But in doing this, you will be
answering a fool according to his folly, which we
are commanded to do in some cases.
In advocating temperance societies, and urging
people to join rhem, I am met with something
like this : ‘We are temperance men, and if your
societies were temperate only, we would join
them ; but you ask us to join temperance soc ie
ties, and then make us take a pledge of absti
T suppose you see, Mr. Seals, what I am after?
If you have an article in your head on this sub
ject, I would be glad to see it in the Crusader.
Although the sweet influences of Pleiades have
been unbound, and the returning summer’s sun
has brought us myriads of bright and beautiful
flowers, whose fragrant essences are poured out,
with the most lavish profusion, upon each pass
ing zephyr, and by the genial warmth of his
spring-tide rays have the little feathered song
sters been invited once more to return to cheer
and enliven us with their silvery wood-notes
that ring, from morn till night, in accents “melf
lifluously bland” ; yet, that ever-dreaded visitor,
“Jack Frost,” made his very unwelcome and
disagreeable appearance here a few nights ago.
I believe, however, it was only on the low, flat
places that he permitted his hoary locks to kiss
young vegetation—little or no injury being sus
tained by the young fruit crop—the most of which
is now in full bloom. If the bright blue sky was
not so continually shrouded in dark and threat
niiig clouds, the country would present a sub
limely beautiful appearance now. To gaze upon
the far-off landscape, and mark the lovely and
beauteous contrast of the deep pink and crimson
hued flowers with ihose of immaculate whiteness,
with an occasional field of green interspersed be
tween, is enough to make the most insensible to
nature’s lovely charms exclaim, with fond admi
ration, “How beautiful—how lovely !”
The sky, even while I am writing, is dark and
lowering, though the earth is drenched in water,
and the high hills are become the dwelling-places
of the croaking frogs; yet/ the Heavens still
wear the same gloomy, humid cast that has
marked it for almost the entire winter. The
planters are all busy, now, in planting, notwith
standing the unfitness of the soil for their grain’s
reception, the consequence of which doubtless
will be the trouble of re-planting. The growing
wheat crop looks quite promising, and despite
the gloomy effects of an overcast sky, it gives the
face of the country a most glorious and happy
appearance. Your mend, COR.
Marion, March, 1859.
A REPLY TO THE WIDOWERS.
I’m here, my widower friends, again ;
And though I’ve long in silence lain.
Don’t think it strange or very queer
That I, at last, should re-appear.
Yes, I am here, my friends, once more,
And just as saucy as before.
And tho’ I’ve silence kept so long.
I’m sure I meant to no one wrong,
But thought I’d give all time to speak
Who my acquaintance wished to seek,
And when convinced you all were through,
I’d then reply to each of you.
But now don’t think it would be wise ;
The number’s grown to such a size
My time and space I find too small
To even briefly mention all!
And should any name be missed
That’s on my correspondence list,
Just think ’tis for the want of time
That you’re not mentioned in my rhyme ;
I mean to no one disrespect,
And none would purposely neglect.
I honor widowers, as a class,
But, ah! me, what a mighty mass
Ot Billets of a recent date,
You’ve sent to puzzle Saury Kate !
A few do public merit claim—
Many by private medium came —
Some are witty, some sublime,
Some in prose and some in rhyme,
Some assume a serious tone,
Others are full ofjest and fun.
Various as the rainbow’s hue
Are clothed the ideas brought to view.
Ah ! yes, how variously expressed ;
Yet each, in turn, does interest.
How much alike the light, the shade,
The sentiments by you portrayed—
How much alike a garden fair
With variegated flowrets there ?
Again, how like a wild wood scene,
W here gloom and sunshine intervene ?
The picture,as a whole I find
A pleasant study to the mmd.
Take but a superficial glance
It does amuse, delight, entrance;
But when I look with steadier eye,
I feel instruction gained thereby.
My friends, ’tis flattering I declare,
Your kind attention thus to share;
And with permission from you now,
I make to each my prettiest bow.
The case before me to inspect—
Each character in turn, dissect—
As ’tis presented to my view,
In those kind billets sent by you.
’Tis thus I judge of you alone,
For personally you’ie all unknown ;
And as such, you can’t deny
I view you with impartial eye,
And now proceed, without delay,
To tell you what I have to say:
To you who boast a foreign name,
And o’er the broad Atlantic came,
And of your “dear piano” tell —
And the “sweet cottage,” where you dwell,
Let me beg leave to say, just here,
Though I esteem e.cli foreigner,
Who acts an honest, upright part,
How many wears a treacherous heart,
And since so many do deceive,
How can I any one believe ?
Music hath power,’tis true, to charm,
And e’en the savage bosom warm—
Imparts a witchery, a bliss,
But we can’t live on things like this.
No, nature’s wants much more require,
Wholesome food and warm attire.
When less substantial joys console,
There’s music in the poet’s soul,
There’s music in the zephy’s low,
And in the gentle streamlets flow—
In the ocean—in the air—
Oh ! yes, there’s music everywhere.
That little cottage speaks of joy—
Domestic peace without alloy—
And where the humble might be blest.
This wins me more than all the rest,
But well I know we can’t agree,
Sol will turn away from thee,
To one who boasts of strength and size—
To you who dwell ’neath Georgia skies,
Among the swamps of Washington.
My friend you seem inclined to fun,
And might the blues perhaps, dispel,
But of no occupation tell.
Have you no calling, trade or place,
Or think you labor’s a disgrace ?
A disgrace ! 1 cannot bear
The useless drone I do declare—
I envy not that man his life,
Who is not a hero in the strife—
Who does not in the battle fight,
Against the wrong and for the right.
When there is so much to do,
Both for ourselves and others, too,
Who’d on beds of roses lie—
See vice to flourish, virtue die ?
Such an one I could not trust;
No, rather let us rub than rust;
For such an one we were designed.
Both with the hands and with the.mind
Who labors not in such a cause,
Contrary acts to nature’s laws.
Be ye gentle, be ye rude,
Who no exertion makes lor good,
May rest assured you disobey
Heaven’s commands, and on that day,
When God shall judge the quick and dead,
The doom of all shall then be read,
And those who act not here their part,
Will be, “ye cursed from me depart.”
Excuse me if I’ve spoken plain—
I hope I have not given pain ;
And please upon my words reflect.
I’ll now another case inspect.
To you, of Memphis, Tennesse,
Who write so very pleasantly,
I think that some attention’s due,
If only half you say betrue.
“Your reputation, honored name—
A lawyer of no common fame—
Your kind address, your manners free,”
All this is just as it should be.
And well you know your cause to plead—
Your eloquence is great, indeed,
And then you have a cunning way
To make of it such grand display !
But if exerted in the cause
Os virtue and your country’s laws,
If from the words ot wisdom learn,
’Twixt truth and error to discern,
And like the fabled goddess stand
With seals of justice in your hand,
With man’s condition out of sight,
Weigh their acts, their deads, aright,
With not one selfish end in view,
Ido esteem—l honor you !
And if, on the other hand,
You the right should understand,
And the cause espouse instead,
Os darkened crime and error dread —
Falsehood with eloquence unite,
To try to prove that black is white;
Or quibble like with varnished cheek,
In either cause consent to speak
Just as in your sordid eyes
The fee appears of proper size,
Language is powerless to reveal
The great contempt tor you I feel;
And when you’ve crossed the river Styx
You’ll doubtless be in such a fix,
That you would give your largest fee .
Tartarus climes no more to see—
Give all your eloquenee and power
To gain the fair elysium bower;
But I trust this picture’s not of thee—
You in the former one I see.
But let me hasten on my way—
Another character portray:
On you. now of the old North State,
Young Esculapius, I’ll await.
Follower of those ancient men,
Hippocrates and Galen,
You who’ve gleaned from dead men’s brains
An art to heal the sufferer’s pains—
A science learned by .which you can
Do good, and aid thy fellow man,
’Gainst thy profession I have nought—
’Tisone the good and wise have sought,
But has been much abused of late,
In this and many another State ;
But if with philanthropic view
It has been sought and practiced too —
If with the same intent you go
Where’er you hear the sound of woe—
In lazar house—in prison wall—
In lowly cot or lordly hall—
Who, at the post oi mercy’s found,
Has my respect the most, profound.
And prayer from many a grateful breast
Shall rise above to make thee blest.
So well I love the noble deed,
That the physician might succeed.
But then there’s many quacks abroad,
Who their own merits loudly laud,
Who ne’er an author has read o’er,
Or entered through a collegedoor,
But with an undue weight of brass,
Impose upon the ignorant class—
Resort to trickery and crime—
Just anything to make a dime.
If you class along with these.
Rest assured you could not please ;
And many such we all mry see,
Who wears the title of M. D.
But those, be sure, who don’t adorn
This good profeßson have my scorn.
I do admire the “stately mien—
The attire that is neat and clean,”
And must approve, I can’t deny,
“The soul with aspirations high.”
But Esculapius, now adieu.
The merchant, next, I bring to view:
To you who wrote that charming dittv
From out a distant southern city.
From what you say and what I hear,
You are a merchant I infer—
A wholesale dealer in the ait—
The fair exchange of heart for heart.
“No robbery’s in the fair exchange,”
The proverb says, but then ’tis strange
That you a fair exchange would give,
You who by speculation live;
Fur e’en the honost merchants make
A profit; otherwise, they break.
All may be so that you’ve confeat,
But then it all may be a jest.
Youspuzzle me, indeed you do—
More, I believe than I did you. I
No hatred I for merchants feel,
Who honestly and fairly deal,
But those who trick, and lie and cheat,
And use with customers deceit,
When a subjects found begin
With honeyed words to take them in ;
f*nd when you see you’re gaining power,
Will still the fattery thicker shower.
Until you have their purse and heart,
A victim, powerless to depart.
Until relieved of every cent.
But very soon they do depart—
And may be seen with sorrowful face.
How oft we meet with such a case ?
I hope, my triend you act more fair —
Do everything by rule and square.
Who’d catch the unwary and unwise
By false pretences, I despise.
Yon must pursue a different plan—
Be faithful both to God and man—
If you would negotiate
Or treaty make with Saucy Kate.
But let me now, kind sir, attend
Awhile to my mechanic friend.
Yes, unto you of Cedar Creek,
A few words now I fain would speak.
You say the Empire State’s your home —
I rom the Palmetto one you’ve come—
That you from Carolina came—
That little state of chivalry—
It recommends you more tome,
And would sooner win my smile.
Than lord of yonder sea-girt isle.
This is enough within itself.
To prove you are no silly elf,
man of worth and sense,
Who’d scorn to make a false pretence.
You’re a mechanic you confess ;
For this I like you none the less.
You’ve found no idle time you say,
“But labored on from day to day,
As through this land your works will show—
From house to house where’er we go,”
“ ’Till on your visage middle age
Has slightly pressed her signet sage,”
“And though you’re not a millionaire,
You have enough and some to spare.”
“Go buy the hungry orphan bread.
Or shelter for some houseless head.”
You’re what your Maker did intend,
If such, and working out that end
For which we were designed by Heaven—
For which our faculties were given—
And though your palm be hard and brown,
I never at the useful frown.
And proffer to thee friendship’s hand,
As one among the worthy band.
To the mechanic now a truce.
The farmers next I’ll introduce.
To you, sir, of the far off West,
Os such a mass of wealth possessed,
I do not crave your wealth; oh, no;
“We want but li.tle here below.”
If you’ve nought else to recommend.
No further thought on you I’ll spend,
Or will, at least, my thoughts divide,
With you the one who doth reside,
Where Chattahochee’s water’s lave,
And fields of snowy cotton wave.
So many pretty things you’ve said,
You’ve almost turned my silly head;
Yes many a hifalutin word
In your effusion has appeared;
And even this was not enough;
You must insert some latin stuff".
I doubt not but vou French can speak,
And know a half a line of Greek.
You say you are a farmer, too,
(I hope my friend this may be true)
“Would friendship’s feelings cultivate.”
This is indeed a lovely trait.
“Also, if Heaven the bliss would grant,
The flower oflove you would implant,
Within some gentle female breast.
To bloom lorevcr there a guest.”
Oh ! this is nice I do declare—
I hope that Heaven may grant your prayer
While I look to the orange bowers,
The land of sunshine and of flowers,
Where the bright magnolia’s seen,
And forest of perpetual green,
There is a witchery in this spot;
And you, my friend, are not forgot.
You say “you arc inured to toil—
Son of the forest and the soil—
A follower of the honored plough—-
To Ceres and Triptolemus bow —
The Cornucopia’s crowned your board—
Your granaries are all well stored.”
This does not me the least surprise.
The agriculturist is wise.
Who tills the earth will soon discern
She yields to all a due return ;
And then he’s free from the parade,
The sad anxieties of trade— m
Leaves public discord out of sight,
And keeps his conscience pure and bright.
We have it both from lips and pen,
They are our truest, bravest men.
The words of Dodd who can deny,
“ That on this class we may rely ?’ ’
They’re honest upright; and, in short,
Ourcountry’s safety and support.
It is on them we all depend ;
They’re to mankind a general friend;
They’re Gods own true nobility,
And truly more esteemed by me
Than are the pampered sons of pride,
Or those who labor do deride.
I’ll notice, now, the Minister:
He, too, must on this page appear.
Yes, here a few words I will write
To you who spread the gospel’s light
To the benighted child of woe,
Where bold missouri’s waters flow.
You say, “you have no wealth to give—
Os this world’s good you litile have ;
But the Ferian spring hath sought,
And in a noted College taught,
And one day in every seven
You teach poor souls the way to Heaven.”
The one who iauors for mankind—
To ennoble the immortal mind —
The one to pious purpose given.
Who points the erring soul to Heaven ;
Who for a brother vile will pray,
And humbly plead from day. to day ;
Who bows before no other throne,
But worships God and him alone,
I’d better love, than if he were
A merchant-prince, or millionaire.
And if there should be grades above,
Within that home of peace and love—
Yes, should we there distinctions meet—
He’ll occupy a higher seat—
A far more glorious crown will wear—
A brighter palm of victory bear.
No doubt his joys will there surpass
The joys of any other class;
Yes, if there’s one above the rest,
The preacher there must be more blest.
But here I’d have it understood,
I do not think that all are good,
Who in the sacred desk do stand,
And tell us of a better land,
No, Judas’s are all about,
And canting hypocrites, no doubt,
Who wear the cloak of piety
But to conceal their infamy.
Os all the men we’ve ever seen,
Are they not meanest of the mean ?
Shame and confusion must awake,
And soon all such must overtake.
But from this picture, dark and sad,
Let’s turn to one more bright and glad.
Yes, your atttention I’ll invite,
And here a few kind words indite,
To you who dwell by Northern shore,
A thousand miles away or more.
You say, my friend, “you have no lands,
But work with willing, honest hands.”
More valued he who does his duty
Than those possessed of wealth or beauty ;
And to judge from what you’ve said.
Your heart is honest, clear your head,
A man of worth and one of sense,
With soul brim full of eloquence,
And burning with poetic fire,
That e’en a stoic must admire.
Genius ! oh what pleasant sight,
When softened by religious light:
Your mind seems of a pleasant cast,
And yours a literary taste,
And here I will confess to you,
That mine is literary too;
And though you dwell ’neath Northern sky,
And I where Souhern sunbeams lie ;
And while you tread Long Island’s shore
And listen to the ocean’s roar ;
Or through the crowded street you roam,
I’m wandering in the forest home,
Listening to the wild birds’ song,
Where mountain streamlets dance along.
All is dissimilar, apart;
And yet, there’s something in each heart—
Yet something in that heart of thine
That seems congenial with mine—
Sympathies beyond control,
Deep within thy secret soul,
Like diamonds hidden in the sea,
That draws this heart of mine to thee.
But turther comment I’ll forbear,
And your patience kindly spare.
It is enough: I’m pleased with you,
And with reluctance say adieu.
I plainly write —as plainly speak—
But I no controversy seek.
And if there’s one unkind allusion
To any one in this effusion,
I’m very sure I shall repent
That I ever should have spent
My labor on this silly rhyme,
For very precious is my time;
And it should not be abused,
But in some good purpose used,
And since, at last, I think of this,
I hardly think ’twould be amiss.
And kind reader, do believe
I mean e’er long to lake my leave,
For Mag—her lesson must recite,
And Bobby must be taught to write,
And Billy taught his A. B. C.
And Tom to work the Rule of Three;
Nan’s grammar lesson must be said,
And Bessy’s composition read;
Then young America must speak,
And the new preacher came this week
And is to call to tea to-night,
And all things must be set aright.
Much more than this I hjve to do ;
And, indeed must hasten through ;
And if no oppose,

letters from Alabama.
Mr. Editor: There is the sweet scent of wild
plumb blossoms in the woods —there are wreaths
of beautiful red buds in the dells —the orchards
are putting on coronals of pink and e merald
blue violets are peeping out under the tufts of
green leaves, and the river is swollen by long
rains. February, the last month in old winter s
icy train, has just taken its departure. March
has yet to pipe its shrill blasts over the hills, and
whistle through the naked branches of the trees,
and shriek around half fallen chimnies, and sound
his solemn anthems down deserted aisles. Jack
Frost’s spring mission in this region is not, I fear,
fully accomplished. He will spangle the window
panes, and leave silvery tracery upon the hedges,
and along the hill sides. Where then will be the
fruitage of these beautiful but precocious flowers!
They remind me of many a sad thing in this
world. Thus have I seen germs of great good
ness, nursed intobeing in the hearts ot childhood,
by the warm sunshine of a mother’s love, but
the relentless hand of death swept her away, and
the bitter frosts of life blighted, what in the be
ginning was full of promise. Yet in spite of evil
augury, it is impossible not to open one’s heart
to the sweet spring-like influences, which, for
the last few days, have been breathed around us.
The blue birds are here, and the river goes on its
track, like a thing of light. By the way, Mr.
Editor, we are havinga boat made. Won’t it be
delightful sailing ?
We have just received a visit from one of Spur
geon’s devoted followers, Dr. Goode. He was
an entire stranger in this community, but man
aged to hit off character with surprising accuracy
—told by the shape ot the cranium, whether you
were despondent or hopeful—avaricious or be
nevolent —wise or foolish. I went into his lec
ture room, somewhat sceptical in regard to the
truth of phrenology, but after he had pronounced
upon my social disposition, intellectual character,
&c., I was constrained to acknowledge, that there
was truth in the science, or else he was a won
derful guesser. He managed to unlock the inner
man with a skillful hand, and throws bare mo
tives, in a manner which is startling to the evil
We have also been blessed by a visit from two
ambrotype artists, and have sat for our picters.
You who can step into a gallery at any time, can
hardly imagine what a sensation the arrival of
such worthies create, in a retired country village.
The belles wish their charms perpeluated, even
tho’ it be upon such a brittle substance as glass';
and true affection hastens to secure “the shad
ow of its boloved oneYre the substance fades.”
But the subject in which I feel, just now, the
deepest interest, is the success of Prof. I. J. Mor
ris’s Grammar. Have you examined the work,
Mr. Editor? If you have not, I beg you to do so.
If I mistake not, you will derive pleasure from
the perusal, and the work will meet your appro
bation. The Professor brought to his task a dis
criminating mind and a vast fund of the very kind
of knowledge he needed when he undertook the
work of revising English Grammar. I hope yet
to see his work in universal use. It is just what
we need. What I marvel at most is, that it was
not produced fifty years ago. But a path always
looks very clear and easy to us, after some hardy
pioneer has entered, and with a strong arm re
moved obstacles. As the Professor has grammar
arranged, it is easy of acquisition, and of great
practical advantage to the student.
But the shadows of twilight are gathering around
me. I must throw aside my pen, and curtesy an
I’V WM. HAUSER, M. D. OF GA.
I think you will learn the elementary princi
ples of music more easily if I take you to the keys
of a piano, than in any other way, unless I could
parade before you a series of musical diagrams,
which I cannot do. Walk up, then, every one of
you, to the piano.
You see that row of keys? It is called the
keyboard. Some keys, you notice, are white;
the others black. At one place you see two black
keys in a group, and at another three. That is
perfectly plain. Thus the black keys are ar
ranged all over the keyboard of a piano, melo
deon, organ, &c. You will note that immedi
ately below the two black keys—i. e. to the left
of them, two white keys lie close together, with
no black one between them. (There is a great
deal of meaning in this arrangement of the keys
—don’t forget my rule.) Well, the first white
key below the two black ones is called C. “Al
wayscalled so ?” Yes, always; that is its name ;
it has no other; learn it here, and you have it for
all time, and for all music, vocal or instrumen
tal. The next white key, going to the right, is
called D, the next E, the* next F, (and E and F
lie close together, with no black key between
them,) the next G, A, B, and then C again. You
see you have called seven letters: C, D, E, F,
G, A and B. These seven letters are used every
where, to represent the seven elementary sounds
of music. You may call them as they occur in
the alphabet: A, B, C, D, E, F, G; or call them
B, C, D, E, F, G, A; or C, D, E, F, G, A, B ;
orD, E, F, G, A, B, C; or E, F, G, A, B. C, D;
or F, G, A, B, C, D, E; or G, A, B, C, D, E, F.
And, by the way, you percieve that tlsese seven
letters can be made to occupy several different
Now, strike a white key called C—better strike
a C about the middle of the keyboard, or one to
the left of it—strike it quickly, and sing the same
sound it makes. You may call the sound one,
do, fa, ah, or just make the sound without calling
it anything. Jo, bo, ho or ro would be as good a
name to call it by as any other; but call it C ;
then strike the next key and call it D ; so keep
on from C to B, striking every key in succession
and singing every sound. Now, you have sung
and played all the seven elementary sounds in
music. The next key above Bis always C, and
the distance trom any key to another of the same
name above it or below it, is called an octave —
that is, an interval ot eight degrees; thus: from
C tq C is an octave —from B to B is an octave,
and so of all the rest. If you count the keys of
a piano, you will find 6 or 7 octaves ; count and
see; still, there are no more than seven elemen
tary sounds ; but in some octaves these sounds
are pitched very high—so high you cannot sing
them. In ohers they are too low for you ; in
others they suit your voice exactly.
The great Author of your being has given you
not only a singular musical apparatus, but a cu
rious hearing arrangement, which I aim to ex
plain by-and-by. But to your singing machine :
You are, every moment, consciously or uncon
sciously, inhaling and exhaling atmospheric air
through your nose and mouth. This air is, or
ought to be, drawn down into the very smallest
ramifications of the air-tubes that pervade the
lungs, where it not only acts as purifier of the
blood, (oxygenizing and decarbonizing it,) but it
is thence set in motion by the muscular appara
tus of the chest, and sent in waves to the top of
the windpipe (trachea.) That enlargement at the
top of your trachea is called the larynx. In it,
spread over its surface, are small fleshy bodies
called chorde musicales, (musical chords.) Here,
then, is your Heaven made harp—i. e. in your
glottis. On this you play all sorts of tunes—
“from grave to gay, from gentle to severe.” mod
ifying the sounds with teeth and tongue and pal
ate and lips and roof of mouth. By this the hu
man heart has been soothed of its sorrows, from
the days of Jubal to the present hour. Tyrants,
as James 11. of England, have felt its power,
even to the loss of their guilty thrones. And
who that has looked at all into French history,
can ever forget the terrible power of the Marseil
laise, (the world-renowned Marseilles Hymn,) as
it rolled, like a dreadful earthquake, from the
throats of fifteen millions of excited men and wo
men, prostrating before it the Nobilily, the bloody
hierarchy of Rome and the old dynasty of France,
which had lived on triumphantly from the days
of Clovis to those ot Louis XVI ?

It is hard to realize that cheerful, friendly little Vallie
is dead. It seems that she is still at play with her little

Because it is the ornament God himself provmded for all
our race. Reader, although the rose may blooms ever so
brightly in the glowing cheek, the eye he ever s<rtowk
ling, the teeth be those of pearls, if the head is berefNfif
its covering, or the hair be snarled and shrivelled,
and dry; or worse still, if sprinkled with gray, nature will
lose more than half her charms. Prof. Wood’s Hair Res
torative, if used two or three times a week, will restore and
permanently secure to all such an ornament. Read the
following and judge. The writer of the first is the ce’ebrk

Dear Sir : Permit me to express to you the obligations I
am under for the entire restoration of my hair to its origi
nal color. About the time of my arrival it wasrapidly be
coming gray, but upon the application of your “ Hair Re
storative,” it soon recovered its original hue. I consider
your Restorative as a very wonderful invention, quite effi
cacious as well as agreeable.

Prof. 0. J. Wood— Dear Sir : Some month or six weeks
ago I received a bottle of your Hair Restorative and gave
it my wife, who concluded to try it on her hair, little think
ing at the time that it would restore the gray hair to its
original color, but to her as well as my surprise, after a
few weeks* trial, it has performed that wonderful effect by
turning all the gray hairs to a dark brown, at the same
time beautifying and thickening the hair. I strongly re
commend the above Restorative to all persons in want of
such a change of their hair. Charles Cardew.
n t tt. . New York, July 25,1557.
Prof. O. J. ood : With confidence do I recommend your
Hair Rostoiative, as being the most efficacious article I
ever saw. Since using your Hair Restorative my hair and
whiskers, which were almost white, have gradually grown
dark; and I now feel confident that a few more applica
tions will restore them to their natural color. It also has
relieved me of all dandruff and unpleasant itching, so com
mon among persons who perspire freely. J. G. Kilbv.
Prof Wood : About two years ago my hair commenced
falling off and turning gray—l was fast becoming bald, and
had tried many remedies to no effect. I commenced using
your Restorative in January last. A few applications fas
tened my hair firmly. It began to fill up, grow out and
turn back to its original color (black). At this time it is
fully restored to its original CQlor, health and appearance,
