terms, it is recommended in all those diseases which
arise from impurities of the blood, or vitiation of the

Some of the above complaints may require some
assistant applications, which the circumstances of the
case will dictate ; but for a general remedy or Pur.ifi

generally be found sufficient.
Tiie following certificates, out of hundreds similar

WHO WAS IT?
A Lyric —Written for the Spirit of the Times—
by a bachelor.
t I met yestere’en at the Ball,
Just under the great chandelier.
A fairy form graceful and tall,
Which made me feel wondrously queer.
Her raven hair waved o’er a brow,
Than parian mable more white,
And never was seen, as I vow,
A step so elastic and light.
Rare jewels flash’d bright in her hair,
By a tiara of rubies enclosed,
But far more surpassingly rare
Were the pearls that her sweet lips disclosed.
Her eves—Ah ! don’t mention her eyes !
Liquid diamonds floating in jet;
Her smile, bright as midsummer skies,
Is lingering round my heart yet.
Oh say who this beauty can be,
And save a fond youth from despair ;
If she will but 1 cotton’ to me,
I’m hers heart and soul, I declare.
From the Sunday Morning News.
ANSWER TO HER WHO ASKS ‘IS LOVE
LIKE WINE ?’— BY SAMUEL WOODWORTH.,
Respectfully dedicated to my wife.
Yes, love, tike wine, when new and young,
Sweetly exhilarates the brain ;
Like wine, love fetters too the tongue,
When we would deprecate disdain.
And love, like wine, improves by age,
Growing more mellow, pure and free ;
Less liable to wake the rage
Os dark, suspicious jealousy.
Oh ! I have loved, for thirty years,
The faithful partner of my bed ;
With her have mingled smiles and tears,
Ar.d wiped the precious dtops she shed.
For woman’s heart, alive to grief.
Though to affliction's pangs'unused,
Like the young green geranium leaf,
Emits new sweetness when’t is bruised.
Thus 1 we have lived and loved together,’
Though wintry skies have threat’ning scowled,
Breasting the storms of life’s rough weather,
And laughing when the tempest howled.
And, hand in hand, we’ve clomh the hill,
Cheering each other as we went,
Trusting io Him, who helps us still,
For daily bread and sweet content.
’T was all we asked, except the grace
To fight against the foes within,
The evils of our fallen race,
And pardon for besetting sin.
How oft I’m gazing, unsuspected,
To catch a glimpse of her loved frame !
But if the homage be detected,
I, like a novice, blush for shame.
I catch her voice—’tis music to my ear,
And oft, to hear it, make pretext to call her!
When she is absent, I’m oppressed with fear,
Lest some untoward accident befall her.
Yes, love's like wine —’t is proved with ease:
Age renders it more rich and sound;
Foi, purified upon the lees,
With brighter gems the cup is crowned.
THE TEST OF FRIENDSHIP.
A SHORT AND TRUE STORY.
‘ The hand that wiped away the tear of want
The heart that melted at another’s woe,
Were his and blessings followed him,’
David Wentworth had the kindest of hearts.
There was neither mete nor bound to his be
nevolence. except inability. And happy
were any man who had a tythe of the prayers
that were offered up for the welfare of my
friend by the unfortunate and wretched whom
his hand had relieved.
I speak of prayers —for it was the only re
word he obtained ; I mean here but I for
David was paying attention to a young
lady of his native city. She was wealthy,
beautiful, and accomplished, and consequent
ly had many suitors. Among them were
richer and nobler (in extraction I mean) and
handsomer men than David, but n’importe,
there was a kind of frank heartedness about
my friend, that could not fail to carry him
somewhere near the heart of Ins mistress,
even if an emperor had been his riv al.
The young lady hit upon a project to put
the character of her lovers to a test. She
had come across a poor widow with a family
in distress, in one of her benevolent excur
sions, and the idea occurred (o Iter that it
would be a good opportunity to ascertain the
stuff her lovers’ hearts were made of. Let
ters were forthwith indited setting forth the
good woman’s tale, and forwarded to the dif
ferent gentlemen in the widow’s name, re
questing an answer and assistance.
The first reply was a lecture on idleness
and begging, and concluded with the infor
mation that the writer was not accustomed
to give to those be did not know. This was
from ten thousand dollars a year. The se
cond advised her to apply to some of the be
nevolent societies whose business it was to re
lieve those who were truly in want. This
from one who had a great reputation for be

several charitable associations, and whose
Pharisaical liberality had been blazoned in the
gazettes. The lady thought that interested
as he was in the success of these institutions,
he displayed a very commendable reluctance
about taking it out of their hands. A third
from a good hearted and generous kind of
fellow—enclosed a five dollar bill with his com
pliments. Several took no notice of the good
woman’s petition. But there was another
answer which the lady read with far different
feelings. It was from David —from S3OO a
year—and I need not say, like himself kind
and consoling. It spoke of the writer’s nar
row means, the rule fie had adopted, of never
giving unless persuaded of the worthiness of
the object, and concluded by requesting an
interview. ‘ If,’ said he, I find myself oilier
wise unable to afford the assistance you re
quire, I trust I may be of service in interest
ing others in your behalf.’
Nor was this mere profession. For it was
but a few weeks before the widow found her
self comfortably located and engaged in a
thriving little business, commenced by the re
commendation, and carried on by the aid, of
my friend. And all this was done in genuine
Scripture style. There was no sounding of
trumpets—and the right hand knew not the
doings of the left. But his lady love was a
silent observer of his conduct, and he receiv

which he little suspected the cause. She be

his was not a thing to be despised, and she

the heart, as she questioned herself respecting

lingered. He could not tear himself away.
‘ She is a most fasinating creature,’ thought
he, ‘ and good as she is beautiful. Can she
ever be mine?’ And a cloud came over his
features, and he sat for a moment in silence.
‘ This suspence must be ended,’ he at length
thought. He started as the clock told ele
‘You will certainly think me insufferably

ELOQUENCE OF THE EARL OF CHAT
All accounts, however, concur in represen
ting the effects of his eloquence to have been
prodigious. The spirit and vehemence which
animated its greater passages, their perfect
application to the subject matter of debate,
the appositeness of bis invective to the indi
vidual assailed,the boldness of tiie feats which
he ventured upon, the grandeur of the ideas
which lie unfolded, the heart stirring nature of
his appeals,are all confessed by the united tes
timony of all his contemporaries; and the
fragments which remain bear out to a consid
erable extent such representations; nor are
we likely to be misled by those fragments, fir
the more striking persons were certainly the
ones least likely to be either forgotten or fab
ricated. To these mighty attractions was
added the imposing, the animating, the com
manding power of the countenance singular
ly expressive; an eye so piercing that hardly
any one could stand its glare ; ar.d a manner
altogether singularly striking, original and
characteristic, notwithstanding a peculiarly
defective and even awkward action. Lat
terly, indeed, his infirmities precluded all ac
tion ; and he is described as standing in the
House of Lords, leaning upon his crutch,and
speaking lor ten minutes together in an tin
dertone of voice scarcely audiole, but raising
his notes to their full pitch when he broke
out into one of his grand bursts of invective
or exclamation. But, in his earlier time, his
whole manner is represented as having been,
beyond conception, animated and imposing.
Indeed, the things which he affected by it
principally, or at least have made it possible
to attempt, almost exceeded belief. Some of
these sallies are, indeed, examples of that ap
proach made to the ludicrous by the sublime,
which has been charged upon him as a pre
vailing fauit, and represented under the
name Charletanerie —a favorite phrase with
his adversaries, as in later times has been
with the ignorant undervaluers of Lord Ers
kine. It is related, that cnce in the House
of Commons he began a speech with the
words, ‘Sugar, Mr. Speaker’—and then, ob
serving a smile to prevail in the audience, he
paused, looked fiercely round, and, with a
loud voice, rising in its notes and swelling in
to vehement anger, he is said to have pro
nounced again the word ‘ Sugar!’ three limes,

will laugh at sugar now ?’ We have this an

means of knowing Lord Chatham, is certain ;

extraordinary power of his manner, and the

It was the night before the battle of Wa
terloo. Napoleon, wrapped up in a military
cloak, was passing to and fro before his tent.
A number of officers, glittering in gilded fin
ery, were seated around some burning logs
neai by, engaged in conversation. They had
laid out before them several maps, and on a
table close at hand was placed a writing-ap
paratus, to which, every now and then, one
or other of the officers would resort, take up
a pen and throw it down again, unable, ap
parently, to nut on paper that which was so
readily conceived in the mind.
The emperor’s movements were quick, and
his step firm. There was something in the
lofty bearing of his majesty; in the broad,
expansive forehead, and the keen, penetra
ting eye, which could not escape the notice
of any one. You mi Tut strip him of every
outward pomp, but still the body and soul of
greatness would remain.
Reader! imagine yourself for a moment,
in the situation we have endeavored to place
you on that eventful eve. Night has thrown
its mantle over the earth, and in sleep rests
many a tired mortal. The conquering army
of Napoleon, having cast aside the engines
of terror and shielded the sword in the scab
hard, are deep in sleep. The distant tramp
of the sentinel ; the broken, uneven conver
sation of the officers around the fire, and the
intermediate yelling.? of a dog hard by, alone
disturbed the quiet cf the place. The pale
moon shadows forth at intervals through the
dark masses of clouds a trembling and uncer
tain light, which gives to the periods of its
obscurity a sombre more than real.
Stand, now, till the morn breaks through
those ponderous piles of vapour, and then we
will consider more closely the movements of

Waterloo, and his arms folded over his breast,
the mighty conqueror becomes absorbed in
The last straggling officer has betaken him

which have been put in order for to-morrow’s
deadly work. But hark!

Napoleon, little aware of the danger that
threatens him, walks with his arms still folded
toward the pieces of cannon we have point
ed out, and under cover of which lay-conceal
ed some four or five ruffians, (whose conver
sation we have in part transcribed,) ready to
pounce down upon their prey. As fie drew
near to them, and his person becoming more
distinct in a sudden flood of moonlight, their
hearts appeared for the moment t 5 melt,

dread against the spilling of such royal

‘ Do it!’ exclaimed all.
‘Then it’s done!’ and foremost of the
gang sprang out, presented Ids pistol to the
head of Napoleon, followed immediately by
‘ Silence, or I’ll ’
‘Or you’ll blow mv brains out!’ added the
emperor, in a jocund manner, and at the
same moment laughing outright.
The cut-throats were confounded. One
looked at the other, and the other looked at
his neighbor, in perfect amazement. The
merry laughter of Napoleon continued, when
suddenly, in an opposite direction, a flash—a
whiz —a hang, succeeded, and the foremost
assassin fell to the ground. In a moment lie
was surrounded by a dozen or twenty solcieis,
all eager to show their attachment, even at
the cost of their own lives. As if nothing
out of the ordinary course of things had tran
spired, Napoleon simply waved his hand,say

stood by bis side, ‘ Let those men be put in

Daylight arrived. The emperor came
forth, mounted on a pure white charger, the
trappings of his harness set with gold. It
was a noble sight. Long was the line of
burnished steel, which passed in review before
him. As far as the eve could reach there
was a continual glitter of polished metals that
reflected back, with the brilliancy of the di
amond, the rays of the morning sun. Nu
merous officers, clad in the richest garments,
ornamented with gold-lace, and their high,
flowing plumes waving in the breeze, accom
panied their commander.
The order had already been given, that
the men who were arrested the night before
should be shot, without a hearing. Napo
leon was to be present at the execution; and,
as lie appeared in ihe distance wuh his nu

out hand-cuffed, their coats and vests thrown
off, and their bosoms bared for the bullet.—

They were ghastly pale, and the traces of
deep anguish were visible upon their fore

A SABBATH IN TIIE COUNTRY.
BY WILLIAM HOIYITT, THE QUAKER.
Let us away in the far, far count ry ! Into
the still, pure, unadulterated country. Ah !
here indeed is a Sabbath! What a sunny
peace, what a calm, yet glad repose, lies on
its fair hills; over all is solemn woods! How
its flowery dales, and deep, secluded valleys,
reflect the holy tranquility of heaven ! It is
morn and the sun comes up the sky as if he
knew it was a day of universal pause in the
workings of the world; lie shines over Ihe
glittering dews, and green leaves, and ten
thousand blossoms; and the birds fii! the
blue, fresh air, with a rapture of music. The
earth looks new and beautiful as on the day
of its creation. Man rests from bis labors,
and every thing rests with him. There lie
the weary steeds that have dragged the
chain and smarted under the lash ; that have
pulled the plough and the ponderous wagon,
or flown over hill or dale at man’s bidding;
there they lie, on the slope of the sunny field ;
and the very sheep and cattle seem imbued
with their luxurious enjoyment of rest. The
farmer has been walking into his fields, look
ing over this gate arid that fence, into enclo
sures of grass mottled with flowers like a car
pet, or rich, green corn growing almost visi
bly ; at his cattle and the shady quiet of his
house. And it is a shady quiet. The sun
glances about its porch,and flickers among the |
leaves on the wall, and the sparrows chirp, and
fly to and fro; but the dog lies and slumbers j
on the step of the door, or only raises his he ad
to snap at the flies that molest him—the very j
cat, coiled up on a sunbright border in Ihe
garden, sleeps voluptuously-—within, all is;
cleanness and rest. There is a clean, cool
parlor; the open window lets in the odor of j
the garden—the yet cool and delicious odor j
—and the hum of bees ; flowers stand in I
their pots in the window; gathered flowers j
stand on the breakfast table; and the far-J
mer’s comely wife—already dressed f>r the !
day—as she sees him come in sits* down to
pour out his coffee. Over the croft-gate the |
laborers are leaning, talking of the last week’s 1
achievements, and those of ihe week to conic;
and in many a collage garden the cottagers,
with their wives and children, are wandering
up and down, admiring the growth of this
and that; and every one settles, in his own
mind, that his cabbages, and peas, and!
beans, are the best in the whole country;!
and, that, as for currants, gooseberries, apri-i
cots and strawberries, there never were such
crops since trees .and bushews grew.
But the bells ring out from the old church
tower. The vicar is .already issuing from
his pleasant parsonage ; groups of peasantry
are already seen streaming over the uplands
toward the village ; in the lanes gay ribands
and Sunday gowns glance from between the
trees; and every house sends forth its in
habitants to worship. Blessings on those
gray old fabrics that stani} on many a hill,
and in many a lowly hollow, over aii this be
loved country. I delight to enter and sit
down among their rustic congregations.
But Sunday morning is past ; and after
noon is rolling away ; but it shall not roll
away without i's dower of happiness shed
on every down, and into every beautiful vale,
of this fair country. Closed are the doors of
the church, but opened are those of thou
sands and tens of thousands of dwellings to
receive friends and kindred. And around
the pleasant tea tab.e happy groups are
’ gathering in each other’s house, freed from
elingmg, pressing, enslaving cures of the sj.\
rluys; aiul sweetly, and lull of renewing
strength to the heart does the evening roll
away. And does it not roll as sweetly where,
t’.V many a cottage door, the aged grand
lather and grand mother sit with two'gene
rations about them, and bask in another glo
rious Sabbath sunset? And is it not sweet
where friends stroll through the delicious
fields in high or cheerful talk; along the
green lane, or broom-engoldencd hill “side;
or down into the woodland valley, where the
waters run clear and chiminglv, amid the
dripping grass and the brooklitne, and the
yellow beams of the descending sun glance
serenely among the trees? And is it not
sweet where, on some sequestered stile, sit
two happy lovers ; or where they stray along
some twilight path, and the woodbine and
the wild rose arc drooping their flowerv
boughs over them, while earth and heaven,
sup’emely lovely in themselves, take new and
divine hues from their own passionate spirits ;
and youth and truth are theirs; the present
is theirs i:t love ; the future is Iheirs in high
confidence; all that makes glorious the life
of angels is theirs for a time? Yes! all
through the breadth of tiiis great land—
through its cities, its valleys, its fair fields—
its liberated millions are walking in the eve
of heaven, drinking in its sublime calm, re
freshed by its gales, soothed by the peaceful
beauty of the earth. ‘There is a pause of
profound, holy tranquility, in which twilight
drops down upon innumerable roofs, and
prayers ascend from countless hearths, in
city and in field, on earth and mountain, and
then —tis gone ; the sabbath is ended.
But blessings, and ten thousand blessings,
be upon that day; and let myriads of thanks
stream up to the throne of God for this divine
and regenerating gift to man. As I have
sate in some flowery dale, with the sweet
ness of May around me, on a week day l
have thought of all the millions of immortal
creatures toiling for their daily life in facto
ries and shops, amid the whirl of machit ery,
and the greedy cravings of mercantile gain,
and suddenly this golden interval of time has
lain before me in all its brightness—a time,
and a perpetually recurring time, in which
the iron clasp of earthly tyranny is loosed,
and peace, faith and freedom, ihe angels of
God, come down and walk once more among
Ten thousand blessings on this day, the
friend of man and beast. The bigot wot and

steps and downcast eves, and tire i h .
would desecrate all its sober decoum
other. Let us still avoid Puritan r: :
French dissipation. Let <u chi
servants, and those who toil lb. us in \-
and shops, and factories, between the mt.-
vals of solemn worship have freedom to walk
in the face of heaven and the beauty of earth;
fur in Ihe great temple of nature stand to
gether—health and piety. For myself—l
speak from experience—it has always been
my delight to go out on a Sunday, and, like
Isaac, meditate in the fields, and especially
in the sweet tranquility, and the gathering
shadows of the evening; and never, in tem
ple or in closet, did more hallowed influences
fall upon my heart. With the twilight and
the hush of earth a tenderness has stolen up
on me; a desire for everything pure and ho
ly : a love for every creature on whom God
has stamped the wonder of his handiwork;
but especially to every ehild of humanity;
and then have I been made to fee! that there
is no oratory like that which has heaven itself
for its roof, and no teaching like the teaching
of the Spirit vvliieh created and still overshad
ows the world with its infinite wings.
