And so death closed those little eyes, shrouded with
bright glances. 0, that the Sun would not come streaming
in on that shrouded form, as if there were no grief in the
How sweetly she sleeps—that little coveted angel! IJow
lightly curl the glossy ringlets on her white forehead ! You
could weep yemr very soul away, to think these cherub lips
will never, never unclose. Vainly you clasp and unclasp
the passive, darling hand, that has wandered so often over
your cheek. Vainly your anguished glance strives to read
the dim story of those faded orbs. The voice,sweet as winds
blowing through wreathed shells, slumbers forever. And
still the busy world knocks at your door, and lets you have
no peace. It shouts in your ear ; its chariots rumble Ly ; it
smiles broadly in your careworn face ; it mocks you as you
sew the shroud ; it meets you at the cofiiu, at the grave, and
its heavy footsteps tramp up and down in the empty room
from whence you have borne your dead. But it comes never
in the hush of night, to wipe away your tears !
“Wanted—an angel for Heaven ! Can you look up ?
Can you bear the splendor of that sight? Ten thousand
celestial beings, and you] own radiant- child in their midst!
“Wanted—an angel for Heaven ! Cling not too closely
to your beautiful treasures, children of earth !”
Borne from hence,our darling Mary,
Can, O can it be she's gone ?
Will no more her voice so lively,
Cheer us in our lonely home ?
Shall wc hearno more her prattling ?
And the merry, joyous laugh—
Will it never more awaken ?
No ! for Mary sleeps in death !
And the toys around us scattered,
Waken in our hearts deep pain ;
Thu’ we know our houselKild idol
Oft returns to us again.
Hope, best harbinger of mercy,
Bore us on through future years ;
It returned at evening, weary,
Wading through a mist of tears !
Truly, shea child of promise,
Once these words were heard to say,
“I would like my sister,
Who has lately passed away.”
Then, fond parents, weep no longer,
For thy little one’s fit rest ;
Jesus took her to his bosom,
Sweetly sleeping on I,is breast.
Brother, sister, kindred spirit,
- * Stay the anguish of those tears ;
Ilecolieet, if youTebut faithful,
A ou will meet in after vears.
Mary hath a home in Heaven,
Far beyond the bright blue sky,
Best in peace with this assurance,
Hilary never more leill die
For the Empire State.

Outlie ocean of time, thyn c ; ju.-t A • ui,
How sweet to behold thee whilst cloudless the skies.
No sor.'ov s oppress thee,joy beams in thine eyes,
Lovely thine image, thy prattle so sweet,
Unfettered by cares, thy swift little, feet,
To search out new mischiefs, thy constant employ,
How dear to my heart is my had little boy;
Enjoy life’s pure morning, mv i.mio cut one,
Regardless the future, bright shiiieth thy sun,
Delight thyself now in the morning of life,
On thy path may await thee much sorrow and-strife,
Itegale now thy senses, with flowers that bloom,
May no clouds of sorrow e'er fill thee with gloom,
And at last inayestthou dwell with the Saviour above*
No sin can there enter t Scat pure world el love.

YOU DESERVE CREDIT FOR YOUR
PROFESSOR Wood's Hair Restorative, is, no doubt, the
most wonderful discovery of this aye of progress, for it
will restore, permanently, grey hair to ‘its original color, co
yer the head of the bald with a most luxuriant growth, re
move at once all dandrulf and. itching, cure all scrofula and
other cutaneous eruptions, such as scald head, &c. It will
cure, as if by magic, nervous or periodical headache, make
the hair solt, glossy a,id wavy, and preserve the color per
fectly, and the hair from killing, to extreme old age.
We could give the testimony of more than one hundred
thousand to the truth of every word we have written. See
circularand the following :
The following is: from a distinguished member of the med
ical profession :
St. Paul, January 1, 1855.
Prof. 0. J. Wood-Dear Sir : Unsolicited, 1 send you this
certificate : After being nearly bald for a long time, and
havingtried all the hair restoratives extant, and having no
faith in any, I was induced on hearing of yours, to give it
a trial. I Jdaccd myself in the hands of a barber, and bad
my head rubbed with a good stiff brush, and the restorative
then applied, and well rubbed in, till the scalp was a glow.
This 1 repeated every morning, mid in three weeks the
young hair appeared, and grew rapidly from August last.
till the present time, and is now thick, black and strong
oft and pleasant to the touch ; whereas, before it was harsh
and wiry, what little there was of it, and that little was dis
appearing very rapidly. T still use your restorative about
twice a week, and shall soon have a good and pci feet crop
of hair. Now if 1 had rend of these things, and who lias
not ? buthave not seen hitherto any case where an}’ per
son's hair was really bene!!! ted by ahy of the hair tonics,
Ac., of the day, aud it really gives me pleasure’ to record’
the result of my experience. ! have recommended vour
preparation to others, and it already has a large and gen
eral sale throughout the Territ >ry. The peojro here know
its effects,and have confidence in it. The supply you sent
iis, as wholesale agents for the Territory, is nearly exhaust
ed, and daily inquiries arc made for it.” You deserve credit
for your discovery ; and I, for one, return you my thanks
for the benefit it has done me, for 1 certainly had ’despaired
long ago of ever effecting any such result.

I have used Prof. 0 J Wood's hair restorative, and have
admired its wonderful effect My hair was becoming, as I
thought,permanently grey, hut by the use of the restora

permanently so. .SYDNEY II REESE,

Prof Wood—Deal Sir : Having made trial of your Hair
Restorative, it gives me pleasure to say, that its efiw-t has
been excellent in removing inhumation, dandruff', and a
constant tendency to itching, with which 1 have been trou
bled from my childhood ; and lias also restored my hair,

LEI THI PUBLIC EII3!
IN mercy to the afflicted, and the gratitude and high opin
ion I entertain of l)R. MOSELEY as a Surgeon and Phy
sician, I deem it my duty to mention the case of my wife,
hoping at the same time that all persons similarly afflicted,
may be beneiitted by it. In the first part of this'year, my
wife had several small lumps make their appearance in her
breast; they continued to increase, in size, until the whole
breast became a diseased mass, and very painful. I procured
the best medical aid in the city of Romo,and notwithstanding
the earnest and faithful attention of our most skillful physi
cians, she continued to grow worse and worse, until thev
gave the case up as incurable, and advised amputation. T
was advised by many of my friends, to visit Dr. Moseley, of
Griffin, Ga., which i did, and, astonishing us it may seem,
lie had her entireli/ cured within one month, and she is •now
in good health! I would advise all who are afflicted with
Scirrlms, and Cancerous affections to visit the Doctor with
out delay, as 1 am satisfied by experience and observation,
that he is the most skillful physician in the Southern States,
in the treatment of that horrible disease—cancer.

its use in the diseases for which it is compounded.

“ If there is any credibility in human testimony, Jacob’s
Cordial must stand preeminent above all other prepara

testimony in its favor coining in from all quarters, it must
be very far in advance, as a curative agent, of most if not
