THE EMPIRE STATE, GRIFFIN; APRIL 16,1850. Noia Bene. Don’t forget to read the call for a Railroad Meeting, which we publish to “day. It is very de 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. Fine Buggy. 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 article, combining Vac advantages ol ease m riding and lightness to the horse, would do well to cal! soon, or they m*y miss a good chance to get a choice buggy. 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 sore throats. 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 ments ? The face exposed to a microscope immedia tely after shaving presents a most unsightly appearance the stumps assuming the forms ot marrow bones sawn tran versely. 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 ducing an injurious effect, no mater how slight j on the brain ? Did not patriarchs and sages of old wear ! beards, and were they not remarkable for lon gevity, as well as for being exceedingly fine looking fellows. Is not shaving a bore—and does not a man, while undergoing the operation, look extreme ly ridiculous ? And it it ;s right to rasp the chin, why not the eyebrows and the head al so ? Does it not appear foolish to shave on a cold morning that which nature has provided to protect us against the cold ? Do we not despise and hold too cheaply a beneficent ar rangement, and infringe a natural law, when we cut off what Providence says so plainly shall grow ? for the more a man shaves the hair grows, even to the hour of his death. The head shall become bald, but the face never 1 In conclusion; when man was created he had given him a beard, and who shall dare to say that it was not a good gift ? Turn to the first chapter of Genesis, and you will find that God saw everything that he had made, and be hold it was very good. Who is to be the Democratic Nomi nee] The Washington correspondent of the New York Express makes the following prediction of the results of the Cincinnati Democratic Convention: . ‘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.’ Model widow. She woudn’t wear her veil up on any ac count. Thinks her complexion looks fairer when contrasted with her sables. Sends back her new dress because the folds of crape on the skirt isn’t deep mourning enough. Stoutly re fuses to look in the direction of a dress coat for—one week. Wonders if that handsome Tompkins who passes her window every day is insane enough to think that she will ever marry again ! Is very found of drawing off her gloves and resting her little white hand on her black bonnet, thinking it may be be sug gestive of an early application for the same.— Concludes to give up house keeping and try boarding at a hotel. Accepts Tompkins’ in vitation to the children’s concert, just to please little Tommy ! Tommy is delighted and 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 viations of her sorrow, in the shape of pro tracted conversation, walks, rides, calls &c. She cries a little when Tommy asks her if sire has not forgotten to plant the flowers in a certain cementeryj- Tomdkins comes in and thinks her lovelier than ever, smiling through her teats; Tommy is scat oiit into the garden to make ‘pretty dirt pies, (to the Utter demoli tion of anew frock and trousers J and returns very unexpectedly to find his mamma’s cheeks very rosy, and to be tossed up in the air by Tompkins, who declares himself his new, new papa. Model Widower. He begins to think of No. 2 before the weed on his hat loses its first gloss. May be seen assisting young girls to get a seat in chuch, or ordering carts off dry crossings* for pretty feet that are waiting to pass over Is convinced he was never made to live alone.— His children must be looked after, or if he has’nt any, he would like to be looked after— himself Draws a deep sigh evey time a di'ess rattles past him with a female in it. Is very particular about the polish of his boot or the fit of his glove; thinks he looks very intcre-t ----ing iu black. Don’t walk out in public much with his children: when he does takes the youngest Revives his old taste for the moon light and poetry; pities single men with all his heart; wonders how they contrive to exist ? Reproves little Joliu for saying ‘Pa !’ so ioud, (when he meets him in the street.) Sets ilia face against the practice of women going home alone and unprotected from the evening meetings Tells the widows his heart aches h r ’em ? Wonders which cf all the damsels he sees, he shall make up Ids mind to marry. Is sorry that he shall be obliged to disappoint th m all but one ! Has 10. g since preferred, orange blossoms to the cypress wreath. Starts some fine day and refurnishes his house from garret to cellar; hangs his wife’s portrait iu the.attic, ('shrouded in old blankets,) and mar ries a playmate of his eldest daughter ! Buffalo, Oct. 17, 1838 Sir. —Your communication of the 15th in3t. a- chairman of committee appointed by The an ti-slavery society of the county of Erie/ has just come to hand, You sol cut uy answers to the following interrogatories: Ist Do you believe that petitions to Con gress on the subject of slavery or the slave trade ought to be received, read, and respect fully considered by the representatives of the people? 2d. Are yon opposed to the annexation of Texas to tlis Union, under any circumstances, so long as slaves are held therein ? 3d.

I am much engaged, and hare no time to enter into argument, or to explain at length my reasons for my opinion* 1 shall therefore content myself for the present by answering all your interrogatories in the affirmative, and leave for some future occasion a more extend i ed discussion of this subject. 1 am, respectfully, Your most ob’t. serv't. MILLARD FILLMORE, i W. Mills, Esq. Chairman. 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 weeping. Eleven years have passed away since that day. The old hero has been more than ten in his silent and narrow home. Tlje voice that cheered the drooping fight, and thundered in the rear of routed armies-is silent forever. The old preacher, too, has fought his last trattle, laid his armor by, and gdne home to his eter nal rest.

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.
