at the following caption of an article winch
appeared in the last number of the South
ern Planter, to-wit ;•* How Poor Men may
Make Poor 1.an.1 Rich.*’ This struck me
as lu'tng the desideratum at w hich I had so
long aimed ; l therefore, read the urticlc
with avidity; hut to! my spirit quailed
when I found that lime and plaster were
•* indispensable.” It is true your corres
pondent has suggested an economical way
to obtain these articles under oircuinstan
ees ; but suppose I ant located in a neigh
borhood where there are no oyster-shells or
ovatcr-hourcs. and without money to buy
plaster; I ant barred these benefits. Per

and the necessary farming implements be
ing obtained, to put his land (the poor
man's) in good arable condition, let him
plant his corn iu will pulverized earth,
and go to his ash-hanks and piles of horse
manure, and take therefrom a quantity suf
ficient to drop in each corn-hill, otic quart
(a pint of leached ashes will sulTioo) so
long as his inumtre lasts, and work his corn
without reference to the application of ma
nure, and my word for it, lie will improve
double the quantity of Innd and make dou
ble the quantity of corn that ho would have
done had he have applied his manure
broad cast; and I have little doubt but that
the double quantity of laud thus maim red
will yield more wheat; for from my expe
riment in this way, I find the manure diffu
sed through tho beds to an extent that no
one can conceive, who has not experiment
ed ill this way. The second crop the beds
w ill be reversed, and tho same course pur

.1 Word to Planters. —Wo trust that none ;
of our planting friends will bo induced by
the slight improvement in the price of cot

change, for a moment, their determination !
to diminish the amount of tho production, j
Whether accidental or intentional, w-c will i
not say, hut it so happens that nearly every
year, just ns our planters are preparing to i
put their crop in the ground, there is a mark- |
ed improvement in prices on the other side !
of the water. This lias generally had the
desired effect of increasing the quantity of ;
land planted, and consequently the amount |
of cotton produced. In the report of the |
market for 1844, as exhibited in the unnun!
circular of one of the most respectable I
houses in Liverpool, this matter is more j
than one? shadowed forth; and though we ;
would not in tho slightest degree impair j
the public confidence in tho general stutc- j

A most affecting anecdote is related by
Dr. Twins, in bis Treatise on Disorders of
the liruin. A ludy on the point of marri
age, whose intended husband usually trnv
cl led by the stugc-coacii to visit her, went
one day to meet him, and found, instead of
him, on old friend who came to announce
to her the tidings of his sudden death. She
uttered a scream, anil piteously exclaimed,
“ He is dead !” but then all consciousness
of the affliction that had befallen her ceas
ed. “ From that fatal moment,” says tho
author, has this unfortunato female, for 50
years, in all soasons, traversed the distance
of a few miles to the spot where she expect,
ed hor future husbnnd to alight from tho
coach, and evorv day she utters in a plain
tive tone, I Ho is not enmo yet. 1 will re
turn to-morrow.” There is a more re
markable case, in which love, after it bad
long been apparently extinct, produced a
like effect upon ing accidentally reviv
ed It is recorded in u Glasgow newspa
per. An old man, residing in the neigh
borhood of that city, found a miniature of
his wife, taken in her youth. She had been
dead many years, and he was a person of
strictly sedate and religious habits, but the
of this picture overcame him. From
the time of its discovery till his death,
which took place some months afterwards,
he neglected all his ordinary duties and
employments, and became in a manner im
becile, spending whole days without utter,
ing a word, or manifesting the slightest in
terest in passing occurrences. The only
one with whom lie would hold any commu
nication, was a little grand child, who stri
kingly resembled the portrait; to her ho
was perfectly docile ; and a day or two
before his death he gave hor his purse, and
strictly enjoined her to lay tho picture be
sido him in the coffin—a request which
was accordingly fulfilled.
Horne Tooke, having challenged Wilkes,
Sheriff of London, the latter wrote the fol
lowing laconic reply :
“ Sir, —I do not think it my business to
cut olf the head of every desperado that may
be tired of his life, but as I am at present
high sheriff of London, it may happen that
I may shortly have an opportunity of at
tending you in my official capacity, in
which ease will answer for it, you shall
have no reason to complain of my endeav
ors to serve you.”
M. Fresnel has published a notice of the
existence of the real unicorn in the wilds of
Hadramaut. This strange beast has a sin
gle horn, attached to Its head by a joint,
through which it can elevate or depress its
horn at pleasure ; remarkably confirming
Psalms 92, 10, where it speaks of the ‘horn
being exalted like the horn of the unicorn,'
and it will throw great light on other pas
sages of Scripture, which the ignorance of
Arabia prevented our comprehending. It
need scarcely be said, that our idea of a
horned horse, for the unicorn is of heraldic
origin, and a physiological absurdity.

Till-! SIAMESE TWINS
We find the following interesting ac
cownt of the twin* and their farm lit*, pub
lished in a Raleigh (S. C.) paper. A gen
tlcman. living neighbor to them, was writ
ten to, u* know whether they were married
or mil, and replied a* follows :
“ Dk cxui 2(Mh, 194 I.
Sir I will now satisfy, or iry to do so* l
the anxiety you seem to have alaiut the Si
amese twins—the fact of iheir being
ed, sir, you need not doubt. They are i
married ; I have often seen their wives be
fore they were married, aud since. Ade
laide and Sarah Yeath, were the names of
the lailies they married. They have each
one daughter, whose names aio Josephine
and Jauc-carsyler. The ladies they mar
ried were in possession of considerable for
tune, and ladies of a great many personal
accoinplisbincnts; quite delieute and hand
some. Their children are a complete mod
el of themselves. As to the precise time
that they married, I cannot state. They
were married by the Rev. Colbey Sparks,
Minister of the Baptist Church, who I am
well acquainted with, and who has often
told me all about the circumstances. The
ladies were born and raised in the county
of Wilkes, and there are no ladies in the
county with whom I am better acquainted.
The twins live within three miles
half of me. They live in quite spiendff/
style, and have all things neatly arranged
about them. They have a splendid assort
ment of farming utensils, and seem to have
superior knowledge of how to use them.
No family appears to enjoy life with
more delight, in short, their situation is
as near complete, as any person I ever saw.
And from every appearance, it seems to
appear that they are the very men who
ought to have married.
Tn politics, they vote the Whig ticket in
full, and advocate tho whig principles
strenuously. They voted for the immortal 1
Harrison, in 1840 ; they voted for the ever 1
to be remembered Clay, in 1844 ; they vo- !
ted for J. M. Morehead, in 1840 and ’42, for
Governor, and for the Hon. Win, A. Gra- j
ham, in 1844. 1 never knew them to vote j
for a Democrat. And they are quite able
in debniing and advocating the Whigprin- I
Their manner and custom at home isT
quite polite and accommodating, and thoirtj
company very engaging ; so much so, that
their home is often crowded with visitors.
They sometimes give parties and Christ
NOVEL APPLICATION OF THE
Priessnitz and his disciples have furnish
ed us many curious anecdotes of the
wonderful effects of water, but they have
not, so fur as we know, pretended to cure
matrimonial squabbles by the application
of their favorite remedy. The following
story from a Swiss Journal, however, would
seem to bo indicative of a power in the.

tle thought of hitherto. Every paper should
copy it for the benefit of those afflicted :

“ A married couple, who had for several
years live’ 1 jri a state, of anti-conjugal har
mony, de* f)ined to part, and made an ap
pointmen. h each other to meet at a no
tary’sto sign the deed of separation. To
arrive at the office they had to cross a lake,
and, ns it happened, they both embarked in
the same boat. On their passage a storm
arose, and the boat was upset. The hus
band, being a good swimmer, soon reached
the shore in safety ; on. looking round him,
to sec the fate of iiis fellow passengers, lie
discovered still struggling for her
life, but in inmiinent danger. A feeling in
his early affection returned to him, a'£
plunging again intdthe water, he swam to
her, and succeeded in rescuing her. When
she recovered her senses, and learned to
whom she owed her life, she threw herself
into his arms. He embraced her with e
qual cordiality, and they vowed an oblivion
of all their differences, and that they would
live and die together.”

to the principles laid down on commencing,
which have so far been found to be sound, has
placed itself in its present prosperous and un
doubtedly safe position.

“Tlie skiiinf physician shall lit) up hi* head
n the sight of the great men of the earth, he,
shall be in admiration ; tor he hath prepared hut
medicines <ut of the herbs of tlie field, atid he
that is wise will not abhor them.”
Physicians, medical men, and jrfiilofopher*.
have all agreed that nature lias prepared a reme
dy for every disease. A little reflection must
convince every one of tlie truth contained in
this remark. Dr. Sjiencei’s Pilis are a vegeta
ble remedy, and all-powerful in removing dis
ease. They may betaken with impunity at all
times without regard to diet or exposure, and
without the debilitating effects consequer.t on
taking other medicines. They have tlie united
testimony of tlie whole medical profession in
their favor, and from their decision there is no
appeal. Persons wishing to purchase cannot be
too particular to get Spencer’s Pills, as there are
scores of unscientific preparations put on sale al
most every day, of doubttul efficacy.
[The following is from Mr. Isaac M. Thomas,
Merchant, at Talladega Springs, Alabama.]
Talladega Springs, Talladega Cos., Ala.
August I7th, 1842.
Tiiis i* to certify, that I have been afflicted
with Sick Headache, Dyspepsia, and Liver Com
plaint, aud Costiveness for the last eight or nine
years, during which time 1 had taken, as well as
1 recollect, about sixty boxes of Beckwith’s
Pills, twelve boxes of Peters’ Pills, and a num
ber of boxes of Champion’s and lirandreth’s
Pills, all of which aftorded me but little or no
relief. At last, I was recommended to try Doc
tor Spencer’s Vegetable Pills, and well I did;
for I never had but one attack of the Sick Head
ache after I commenced taking the Pills, (now
about six months,) and I candidly confess, that I
have derived more real benefit from the use of
Spencer’s Pills, than from all the other Medi
cines and Pills that 1 have ever taken, and 1 would
earnestly recommend them to all, as being in
my opinion the best medicine in use for all lin
gering complaints. The Pills have done me so
much good, that I would not feel willing to be
without them for five dollars a box ; and I can
not but feel very grateful to Dr. Spencer for ha
ving prepared such a valuable medicine, and the
distribution of it is conferring a very great favor
on the public, as it is a thing of the utmost im
portance that every family should have a supply
of Doctor S]iencer’s truly valuable Pills con
stantly on hand.

Gref.nsboii'o, Ala. Feb. 4, 1843.
I certify, that in the summer of 1842, I had a
severe attack of Fever and Ague, and was for
some time under the treatment of a physician,
but received no benefit from his prescriptions—
my disease continued to increase in t lie frequen
cy and severity of its attacks, I at last had re
course to Dr. Hull’s Fever and Ague and Anti-
Fever Pills, and in using half a box, was entirely
cured, and have remained in good health ever
I afterwards had in my family several cases of
Fever and Ague, and have in every instance
made use of Hull’s Pills, which have always im
mediately effected a cure.
Dr. Hull’s Pills, require no puffing w here they
are known and where they are not, a single trial
is sufficient to insure their universal adoption.—
