Don’t forget to read the call for a Railroad

sirable that there shbiild be a full attendance. .
Salmons, Bootli & Cd.
Our readers will perceive, by examining our ad
vertising columns, that these gentlemen are deter
mined not -‘to hide their light under a bushel.”
They have a large stock of gOdds, and the goods
are for sale, and they want every body to know it,
without respect of persons. The Senior partner
has recently returned from New York and Boston,
having purchased a large and extensive assortment
suitable to the demands of the trade in this com
munity, Educated a merchant, and haviug devo
ted his whole life to this pursuit, he is eminently
qualified to judge of the quality of merchandise,
and to make good selections. Their stock is fresh
and well laid in, and offered on favorable terms.
Such efforts to deserve the patronage of a liberal
public, will,"we trust, meet an ample reward. —
Give them a call.
Col. Gordon, of the firm of Messrs. “Woodruff
&. Cos., a day or two since, called our attention to a
buggy recently received at their Carriage Reposi
tory in this place, which excels in appearance any
tiling of the kind we have heretofore seen. It
seems to be made both for strength and light draft,
lias a double set of Springs both in front and rear,
and is of the finest finish. Those wishing a fancy

Flip's Away the Razor.
Each hair is famished with a distinct gland,
‘elaborately ahd beautifully complete. Under
the facial are innumerable nerves, immediately
‘connected with various organs of the senses,
ramifying in every direction, and performing
| most important functions. This hair, when
: fn full growth, forms a natural protector to
the nerves, and also holds, as it were, in sus
pension, a quantity of warm air, through which
Hli'e tbld'hlr'iu breathing passes, and so rarefi
ed or teihpered, enters the lungs without giv
ing to their delicate texture that severe shock
which arises from the sudden admission of cold
so often the forerunner of fatal disorders. Any
one .putting his fingers under the hair of his
*tead will there feel warm air. The liiar also
wards off east winds, and prolific sources of
tooth ache and other pains, and so tends to
preserve those useful and ornamental append
ages, the teeth.
It is said that an intimate connection exists
between the mustache and the nerves of the
eye, and that many diseases of the eye are tra
ceable to shaving Who has not felt his <vc
smart under the application of a dull razor ?
May not shaving, be depriving*the lungs of
the mail of their natural protection, and by
exposing them to the uninterrupted action of
tx)ld air, tend to weaken the chest, and that
weakness being transmitted in an increased
proportion from generation,at length inducing
consumption and consumptive tendency ?
Persons who wear their hair under their
chins, do not, except in rare cases, suffer from
There is in the crypt of Hyde church a vast
pile of bones, which were gathered many years
after a battle fsught upon the shore, between
the Danes and Saxions, about one thousand
vear-s since; and among them the skulls of
aged warriors, finely developed, the teeth in
thauf of which are so per ect, so beautifully
sound and so firmly embeded in their sockets
that yon cannot move them. The owners of
these teeth wore beards; and the writer re
members witnessing, several years ago, some
excavation on the site of the old priory at
Spalding when many stone coffins were dug
cut, whose inmates, almost without except on
sound, entire and elegant sets ot teeth. Did
cot beards grow on their chins ?
Shaving occupies, on an an average, fifteen
minutes. A man who shaves every morning
. for 50 years, thus employs iu that time up
wards of 380 days, 12 hours each. Is this a
profitable application of our fleeting ino
The face exposed to a microscope immedia

Did not teachers of the faculty approve of
moustaches—and arc they not ot opinion that
they play a most important part in
the animal economy ? Is it not probable
that by unduly stimulating the growth ot hair
by shaving, we draw too largely on, and so
cause an unnatural action of the nerves, pro- J

In conclusion; when man was created he

Who is to be the Democratic Nomi
The Washington correspondent of the New
York Express makes the following prediction
of the results of the Cincinnati Democratic
‘lt seems now almostriortain that General
Pierce will go into the Democratic Convention
witl) nearly a majority vote in his favor. The
South is firm in this respect, and enough
Northern votes can doubtless be had to give
him perhaps a clear majority on the first bal
lot. A short time ago I would uot have be
lieved this, but I am satisfied from reccut in
dications, as well as facts that have come to
my knowledge, that such is really the case.—
Mr- Buchanan’s chauces aj c second, and those
of Mr. Dauglas third, as the Convention will
organize. If neither at the out
set, tbev will probably all be dropped, and
the choice rest on either Mr. Hunter, of Vir
ginia, or Mr. Rusk, of Texas.
Should either of the Northern men be nom
inated, Mr. Howel Cobb, of Georgia, will be
a candidate for Vice President; but should a
Southern man succeed, then Mr. Dickenson, of
New York,or Senator Bigler, of Pennsylvania,
will doubtless be selected. These are the
opinions of the most sagdeious men of the par
ty, who profess to be most thoroughly aeqain
ted with -’.l the chartceS and Schemes on foot.
Mr. Rusk has miny friends who a-e laboring
zealously in his behalf. His abilities are fair
and he is quite as worthy of the position as
the one who now occupies it, but I think the
south would more cordially rally on Mr. Hun
ter, who is by fair Mr Rusk’s superior in
ry respect. Mark my prophecies.’

thinks Tompkins is a very kind gentleman to
give him so much candy and so many bonbons.
His manner begins to admit certain little ide

tracted conversation, walks, rides, calls &c.

Anecdote of Jacksofi
j The Western Christian Advocate records the
I following interesting anecdote of Gen Jackson.
! The seeue of it was iu the Tennessee Annu
j al Conference held at Nashville, uud to which
| he had been invited by a vote of brethren that
! they might have the pleasure of an introduc-
I tiou to him.
‘The committee was appointed,and the Gen
oral fixed the time for 9 o’clock on Monday
morning ‘lhe conference room being too
small to accommodate the hundreds who wish
ed to witness the introduction,one of the church
es was substituted, and an hour before the
tiiab filled to overflowing. Front seats were
reserved for the members of the conference,
which was called to order by nhe Bishop, seat
ed in a large chair in the alter, just before the
pulpit, a tier prayers the eominitttee retired,
and a minute afterward entered,conducting the
man whom all delighted to honor. They led
him to the Bishop’s chair t made vacant for
him, the Bishops meanwhile occupying anoth
er place within the alter.
‘The Secretary was directed to call the names
of the members of Conference which he did iu
alphabetical order, each coming forward and
receiving from the a. ishopa personal introduc
tion to Tke Ex President, une immediately re
tiring to give place to the next, lhejcero
rnony had nearly been completed, when the
Secretary read the uame of Rev. James T ;
an elderly geutlemau, with a weather beaten
face, clad iu a suit of jeans, arose and came
forward. Few seemed to know him He had
always been on circuit, on the frontier; and
though always at conference, he never sa.d but
little- that little, however, was always to the
purpose. Mr. T. came forward and was intro
duced to General Jackson. He turned his
face towards the General, who said, it seems
to me that we have met before The preach
er, appearently embarrassed, said; 1 was with
you through the Creek campaign—one of youi
body guard at the battle of Orleans. The
General arose slowly from his seat, and throw
ing bis long, withered, body arms around the
preachers neck, exclaimed: We’ll soon meet
where there’s no war—where the smoke of bat
tie never rolls up its sulphurous incense !
Never before, or since, have I seen so many
tears shed as then flown forth from the eyes of
that vast assembly. Every eye was moist with
Eleven years have passed away since that
day. The old hero has been more than ten in

M’Z.auc’s Vennifuga In Texas.
Hear what the proprietors of the “Star Hotel” has to say
of the wonderful effect of Dr. M’Lane’s Vermifuge :
Star Hotel, Centieville, Texas, Aug. 22, 1854.
I feel in duty bouud to make the following statement
Several of my children have been unwell for the last week
or two. I called at the “Big Morter” to get some Oil of
Wonnseed and other truck, to give them for worms. The
Druggist recommended Mehane’s Vermifuge, but hav
ing, heretofore, tried every Vermifuge, iu my knowing
without advantage, I told him that it was of no use, as my
children appeared proof agaiust them all. He said to take
a bottle, and offered if it done no good, to refund the mo
ney* To satisfy him, I done so* and the effect was so much
better than lexpected, that Igot another bottle ,ans the re
sult was most astonishing; Three of my children ‘dis.
charged a great number of the largest worms I ever saw,
To a young man, my mail carrier, who was weak, puny and
poor as a snake, fora month or so, I gave two doses which
brought from him at least a pint of what’s called stomach
worms. Strange as this may appear, yet it is true as
preaching. How the boy stood it so long as be did, with
ten thousand hots gnawing at his stomach, is the greatest
wonder to me. All these cases are now doing well. No
doubt the lives of thousands of children have been saved
by the timely use of this extraordinary medicine. Don’t
fail to give it a trial. T. It. THURMAN.
