H u n t ’s C e l e b r a t e d P i l l s , For Consumption, Dyspepsia, and Liver Complaint, 4c. Sold by J. M. VAN SLYCK, 76 State-st. Schenectady. A S the enjoyment of health depends on preserving the functions of the Stomueh, Liver, Intestines and Lungs, in a healthy and vigorous state, through the operations o f which the body receives ils growth, its nutrition, its support, it can no longer be astonish­ ing that when these viscera are deranged, and cannot perforin their proper functions, the whole system suf­ fer* and becomes disordered. Knowing this to be a sound and demonstrated fact, in science and evperi- nice, D o c tor H u r t’s Systbh or P r a c t ic e is in faithful accordance w ith it. H e aim s to keep the Stomach, Lungs and the Lieer, in vigorous and healthy actiotf, as the ?three great fountains of health and life.- For this purpose his pills are compounded of her! which strengthen and equalize the action of the hr.e and give an impulse o f strength to the arterial system, the same time quicken the action ot the absorbent ai discharging vessels; and as all the secretions aredraw] front the blood, any morbid action which may have ts ken p l a c e t s rem o v ed, all obstructions are overcome, the blood is purified, and the bodv assumes a healthful state. These pills give tone to the stomach, increask the appetite, and eminently expel all acrid or morbie m atter through the execretory ducts into the ps#*agf of the bowels. In all cases of Consumption, Indig**' tion or Dyspnfsia, Billious Affections, or Lieer Com? plaints, Heartburn, Sourness or Acidity in the StomaeY, Tightness at the Chest, Loss o f Appetite, Sick Head Ache, Pain in the Head, Back, Limbs and Siilc, Flatulency, Ty­ phus and Seurlet Fever, Putrid Sore Throat, Fever and Ague, or Intermitting Fevers, Gout, Rheumatism , Lunbi- go, Sciatica, Spasmodic Affections, and Tic Dolounvx, Convulsions of Children, Measles , Sm a ll Pox, Hooping Cough, Rickets, Teething, Worms, Female Obstruent nd, Chlorosis or Gresn Sickness, and Rejections o f Food, Costiveness, Colic, whether flatulent or Billious, follow! th e DIRECTIONS.

C e l e b r a t e d F e m a l e F i l l s . Sold by J1. M. VAN SLYCK, 76 State st Schenectady. These Pills sre strongly recommended to the notice of the Ladies ss a safe and efficient remedy in remov­ ing those complaints peculiar to their sex, from wan} of Exercise, or general Debility of the System, Ob* structions, Suppressions, and Irregularity of the Men­ ses; at the same time strengthening, cleansing, snd giving tone to the Stomach and Bowels, and producing a new and healthy action throughout the system gen­ erally. They create Appetite, correct Indigestion, re­ move Giddiness and Nervous Headache, and are emi­ nently useful in those Flatulent Complaints which dis, tress Females so much a t the “ T urn or Line.” Tkey obviate Costireness, and counteract all Hysterical md Nervous Affections, likewise afford soothing and per' manent relief in Fluor Albus, or W hites, and in the most obstinate cases of Chlorosis, or Green Sickness, they invariably restore the pallid and delicate female to health and vigor. These Pills have gained the sanction and approba­ tion of the most eminent Physicians in the United States, and many mothers can likewise testify to their extraordinary efficacy. To married females, whose expectations o f the tenderest pledges o f connubial hap­ piness have been defeated, these rill a may be truly es­ teemed a blissful boon. They soon renovate all tunc* tional debility, and if taken (according to directions,) obviate all morbid action. They dispel that fulsome and disagreeable sensation common to females s t each monthly return, likewise the attendant pains in the back, side or loins; they generally counteract the nau­ sea, vomiting, and other nervous affections in Chloro­ sis, or green sickness, in a few days, and if continued (according to directions,) soon effect a perfect cure.— Nothing is so signally efficacious in recruiting the pal­ lid and sickly female (who has been (luring her life ir­ regular and sensitive) as the FEM ALE PILLS. These pills invigorate the whole system, improve the memory, and enliven the imagination,create appetite and restore tranquil repose. Many hundred females can testify of their efficacy, and many Physicians (in this city, as al­ so throughout the United Stales) can bear testimony to their merit* aad extraordinary virtue*-- They are in v a luable t o entoobiod s a d relaxed ?cu,aJ repeated and difficult labors are afflicted with weakness and infirmities, in which case they are highly useful, strengthening a t the sam e tim e the stom a c h , the back, the weakened organs, and the whole constitution. Dr.Goode’s Celebrated Female Pills are o f two kinds, namely: No. 1, or Laxative Pills, and No. 2, or Res­ torative Pills. They are for all the following diseases: Suppression, Irregularity, or Retention oi'the Menses, Fluor Albus, Chlorosis, or Green Sickness, Costive- ncss, Gravel, Incontinence of Urine, Nervous Affec­ tions, Hysterics, Prolapsus Uteri, or Falling of the W om b , and Piles. T h e s e P ills are also particularly adapted to the male as well as the female sex, for the cure of the following diseases: Nervous Diseases, Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Billious Diseases, and all cases of Hypochondriacistn, Low Spirits, Palpitation of the Heart, Nervous Irritability, Nervous Weakness, Indi gestion, Loss of Appetite, Heartburn, General Debili­ ty, Bodily Weakness, or F latulency, Headaches, Night­ mare, Rheumatism, Asthma, Tic Douloureux, Cramp, Spasmodic Affections, and those who are victims to that most excrutiating disorder, Gout; also, Pains in the Side, Chest, Limbs, Head, Stomach or Back, Dim­ ness or Confusion of sight, Alternate Flushes of Heat and Chilliness, Tremors, Watchings, Agitation, Anxi­ ety, bad Dreams and Spasms. This Medicine is acknowledged to be one o f the most valuable ever discovered, as & purifier of the blood and fluids. It is superior to Sarsaparilla, whether as a su­ dorific or alternative. Directions f o r use .—Pills No. 1 must be taken from three to six, or more, at bed time, sufficient to operalt briskly, till the desired object is effected. Take No. 2 according to the directions as on the box.

A short time since, a Christian brother invited me to co­ operate wilh him in a benevolent enterprise, in whicll he was about to engage. I objected on the ground of my want of influence and i; ability to do any thing of importance. He appeared disappointed, and remarked as we separated, “ I f the prophet had commanded thee to do some great tiling would'you have refused?” Upon opening my Bible a few days after, 1 discovered the following lines. They were plac­ ed there by my friend, and the beautiful reproof that tlie words contained, affected und interested me so much, that 1 cannot fotbear sending them to you with the hope that the perusal of them, simple as they are, may stimulate some one to engage in some high or humble enterprise of good.

What is thcro more disgusting to tho virtuous man, to tho man of refined sensibility, than profanity? Although there are many who style themselves gentlemen, that allow them­ selves in this odious practice, yet it does not prove thut it is respectable, neither does it provo tlmt those persons who in­ dulge in it are gentlemen—but tho reverse. Wherever wc hour a man dealing out his oaths at every breath, and culling down the vengeance of Heaven upon him in thn shape of some horrid imprecation, wc may conclude that ho is fur gone in the rond to ruin: and, that unless he soon breaks away from his sinful course, he may be taken at his word, and hurried into eternity with a cuise upon his lips. He may be clad in his robes offine linen, but his apparel will not take away the stain which is affixed to him by usiug profane language. Is he a father? think for one moment of the example he is set­ ting before his children; catching every word which falls from his lips, they soon begin to lisp forth umid ther childish prat­ tle the horrid oath; the passing traveler hears amid their sports tho boisterous laugh mixed with the profanation of God’s holy name. It is a vulgar habit also, for in its train follow low and obscene jests, such ns would make the ears of a virtuous person to tingle; how often is our decency shocked by the, low ribaldry mixed with profanity, which meets our ears in passing through the streets. Iu this en­ lightened age, such a state of things should not be. Those habits which tend to demoralize our characters, should be carefully guarded against, and every precaution taken, that the rising generation may grow np a virtuous and refined peo­ ple. Let tho ladies of the land do what they can for the sup­ pression of this vice; let them debar from their society every young man from whose lips falls profane language; let this be dono in every case, and soon a blow will be given to this vice thut will cause it to tremble from its very foundation.— Tho influence of woman is great; and upon tyhmcvcr benevo­ lent object it is turned, it acts with a lorcc not to be with­ stood.

Opinions of tho celebrated Commentator, Dr. A dam C lakkk , respecting 1 6 'IIIK OX. “ Much increase is by the strength of the Ox.”-Prov. xtv. 4. The Ox is the most proiitable oi ull the ocaflfused 111 hus* handry. Except merely for tpted, he is almost in every res­ pect superior to the horse. 1. He is longer lived. 2. Scarce­ ly liable to anv diseases . 3. He is steady and always pulls fa i r in his geers. 4. He lives, fattens and maintains bis strengih on what a.horsc will not eat; and therefore is sup­ ported on one-third of tlie cost. 5. His manure is more pro­ fitable. And, 6 . When he is worn out in his labor his flesh is good for the nourishment of man, his horns of great utility, and his hide almost invaluable. It might be added he is al­ most no expense in shoeing •' and his gears are much less expensive than those of the horse. In all large farms, oxen are greatly to be preferred to horses. Have patience with this most patient animal, and you will soon find that there is much increase by the strength and labor o f the ox. O ’ Ostentation in dress empties the pocket— robs the mind, and rifles tho heart to adorn the body, and at last dies of its own excess. Just observe how plain we dress. “ Home is home, bo it ever so homely, as the clam said vcn he vas dug up. We once knew a man so confoundedly mean that his own ' shadow wouldn’t follow him.

ISLEY. m -j • Chapter III. 1 ruly it is more blessed to give than to receive, when the object of our charity is known to be deserv­ ing. Young Herbert felt it to be so on his return home. H e knew that his patient was poor, for every thing he saw spoke of extreme poverty; the humble d welling—tlte scant furniture— tho incoherent expres­ sions of the sick woman, and if these were not enough, the purse with its few bits of copper and silver; and lie knew she was worthy. The neatness and order oi tlie room—tlie demeanor of the daughter—every thing around them, convinced him that his gift was well bestowed. W hat argument lie found for this conclusion in the brilliant charms of Ellen—nnd they never shone so conspicuously as in her assiduous at­ tention to her poor mother, it is not for us to say.— Suffice it, that when young Herbert laid his head on the pillow, he felt more satisfied with his evening’s performance than ifh e had received a good fee from a purse proud p a tien t. But how shall we describe the emotions of Ellen on learning the contents o f the pretended recipe ? It would be difficult io paint them in all their variations, llo w deep was her intense delight at the unexpected treasure—coming in this, her sorest need ; and then came other feelings. Sliould she accept the gift— t o t. an ent re stringer, too? Would it b i proper? W as it not intended for ber mother as well as for her­ self ? rliese and a thousand ‘■imtlar questions, she put to herself, without, however, being able lo solve them to her satisfacti .it. Never before did she so much desire her u.other’s counsel aud advice. But when she thought over the situation in which she was placul, with no possibi.it/ of earning any thing by tier own hands so long as her mother continued sick; when she thought o f the extra expenses that must ne- eessar ly be inourr d to provide articles for a sick ro jm ; and when she had not funds enough of her own to procure -i.ore than a week’s provision, small as was her wants—she at once decided to accept the gift. W e shall not attempt to analize poor Ellen's feel­ ings, as she sat that night by her mother’s bedside, watching the uneasy slumbers. She thought, as il was natural that she should, much of her benefactor, but not in the light of a benefactor solely. There was an under current of feeling, as she dwelt upon his personal appearance— lus fine manly form— bis expressive countenance, nnil his sympathetic tones, which she did not attempt to fathorn. She suffered the stream to flow on in its seductive brightness, without que lioning its source or destination. Thus she passed a sleepless but not a wearisome night. In the morning her mother’s symptoms appeared much more favorable. Though wandering at times, she did not exhibit those distressing tokens which so much alarmed Ellen the evening previous, it was with no small anxiety that she now awaited the ex­ pected visit of the physican. She listened with a throbbing heart to every approaching footstep, fearing yet desiring his presence. How should she acknowl­ edge his donation: bow express her gratitude?— should she be silent respecting it, or should she repre­ sent to him the true state of the case, and inform him that she should cousider his gift as a loan, until she should be able to repay it? This last thought struck her the most favorably, and she resolved to be gov­ erned by it. She had scarcely arrived at this conclu­ sion when a chaise rattled up to lhe door. Present­ ly footsteps were heard on the stairs. She started, and the blood (lushed her checks as some one rapped on the door. She opened it, and the young physician entered. H e too, was slightly embarrassed. Has­ tily paying his respects, he approached tlie bed, and inquired alter his patient. “ M y mother rested exceedingly well last night,” said Ellen, ‘‘and appears much better this morning. Do you not think so sir?” “ W h y y e s ; here is a surprising change,” said Herbert, as he felt Mrs. Lemandjs pulse. “ I could not desire a more favorable case.\ But she requires great care and attention. H ave you no friends .Miss Lemand, to assist yotrhi the.arduous duties of asick chamber ?\ “ I once had not, Mr. Herbert: for the poor, those who most need the blessing of friendship, are general- 13 ’ deprived of it. W h en we were in prosperity, we reckoned friends; but when adversity came upon us, friendship took her departure.” “ It is a biller lesson we all must sooner or later learn,” said Herbert. “ I was early taught it. When I most desired friends, I found them not; but when I needed not their aid, then ihey crowded around me. You said you once had no friend— have you been 60 fortunate as to secure one, Miss Lemand ?” Ellen fell her cheeks glow at this question. She hesitated a moment before replying; then, with a throbbing heart and a slightly trembling voice, she said. “ H e who remembers the widow in her afflic­ tion : who feels it is more blessed to give than to receive ; has proved himself more than a friend, indeed !” and she fixed her gaze earnestly on the young physician. H e started at this delicate acknowledgement, and taking Ellen’s hand, with some warmth replied, “ Miss Lemand, I will not pretend to misunderstand you. I thank God, who has given me the power as well astlie will to do an act o f kindness. But the trifle I left last evening must not be alluded to. W e must be better friends— become better acquainted. You were not always as you now appear; you have seen better days. Am I too bold in thus seekingyourconfidence?\ Charles Herbert was a man of generous impulses. H e walked through lhe world with a warm heart, and in a more exalted opinion of human nature than most men. H e was enthusiastic in his attachments. W hen once the fountain of feeling was stirred it gen­ erally overflowed. Left in early life an orphan, he had struggled on unaided—buffeting tho waves with a strong arm and determined heart. H e entered on the study of medicine with barely a change of rai­ ment—a poor student thirsting after knowledge. lie overcame difficulties under which others would have sunk. He bore up against trials which would have crushcdalessdetermined man. The elements o f great­ ness were implanted in his nature, and all the array ofadversecircumstanc s could not subdue them. His career was upward and onward, as Y|)ll be thecoursc of all those who have fixed an eye on the goal, resol­ ved to win if. He was now, at an early age, in the enjoyment o f tlie confidence a numerous and a weal- ihy class, reaping the harvest o f his early suffering. He ranked high as a young physician, and every day added new strength to hia claims Such was Chat les Herbert; and, with this brief exposition of his cha­ racter, the reader will not be surprised at his address to Ellen, and the sudden proffer o f his friendship.— With such a cast o f mind, the barriers of restraint are soon broken down, and though Ellen shrunk with an instinctive delicacy from entering at once into a nar­ ration of her past history, she could not resist his friendly overture. - — CHA P T E R IV. The winter months had passed away. Spring had come with her train of flowers and choir of singing birds, and nature was decked in her beautiful gar­ ments. It was evening, and the streets of the city were thronged with a gay crowd, enjoying the delicious at­ mosphere, and the rich splendor of night. Every moving tiling seemed glad, and in keeping with the freshness aud beauty ofthe season. But let us step apart from the crowd and enter this genteel looking house. The rooms, if not richly, are handsomely furnished. Every thing gives evidence o f having been arranged by the hand of taste. Its occupants eonsist of two females. One, a middle aged lady, bearing the marks of recent illness, reclines on a sofa; the other a beautiful girl about nineteen, whose simple white dress sets off’ a form of exquisite proportion*, is seated at a neat work-table, reading_aloud ^in tone* exceedingly rich and clear. The picture I* one of pure unadulterated comfort, and were it not for the lines of care and suffering—one would suppose that sorrow had never shaded so fair a scene. ‘ It is a sad story, mother,’ said the young lady, as she finished and laid aside the book, ‘ and it bear* a painful similitude to our own dark history.’ “ Without the happy termination, E llen,’ replied the mother. * Perhaps i f there had beeu some good physician nigh, the story would not have closed so parkly,’ said Mrs. Lemand, fixing her dark eyes with an arch meaping^ on her daughter. A smile and a sigh struggled oh the lips of Ellen. ‘ O u r obligations to M r. Herbert are m any a a i great,' said she, while a faint blush stale over her features.. * H a d it not been for him , we m ight still have been tbe occupants of a hovel, and dependant on the precarious m eans by which we so lately w e fa supported.’ ‘ You h a r e often heard, m y daughter, that God never resorts to ordinary m e a n s to accomplish Hi* ends, and that he often causes good to spring from what we, in our finite judgm ent, cnrll an evil. In ­ stance m y late sickness. T o that we a re indebted for the acquaintance of Charles H e rbett— b y J i i n w e learned tbe existence of that letter, th* rrr+ips o f which has worked the change in our situation.* ‘ True,’ said Ellen, ’but we might have received the letter without the doctor’s aid.’ * W e might, m y dear, but’—continued her m o ther, who never neglected an opportunity to enforce a us*-> ful lesson— ‘ I had rather ascribe tbe change* that have taken place to a wise providence than to a blind c h a n c e . ’ And it wa* in this devout reliance that Mrs. Lem a n d found strength to bear patiently the liis o f of life. She had been schooled in adversity, as w a have seen, but a submissive, docile spirit had shield­ ed her in the hour o f trial. ‘ Thy will b t done,' w e ra the magic words which buoyed her life-barh up w b e n tossed upon a tempestuous sea. It formed the bur­ den of a favorite song of hers, written by a friend of her husband and presented to her. . When tailing o’er life’s changeful sea, Should (torms my bark assail, Oh, m a y I put my trust in Thee, Whose power controls the gale | A n d th o u g h opposed m ay be th e w ind, My course but just begun, Let thi* but harbor in my mind-^- \ T h y w i l l b e d om e .” Though wave* around dash high and dark, And bursting upon deck; Dooming my frail and struggling ksrk To early, sudden wreck; Though cloud on cloud their form shoald m r . And shroud entire hope’s sun, Still may I say without a fear, “ T h y w i l l b s d o n e .” Where’er through life rny path may lead, In sun«hine or in gloom; Though thorns should every step impede, How dark so’er my doom ; Oh, never may I dare contend Against that Holy One! But whisper a* I lowly bend, “ T h y w i l l r « d o n k .” B u t how are we to account for this h a p p y chtnga in the circumstances of M rs. L e tuand. T o enable the reader to understand it fully, he m u st m ust go back with us to the sick cham b e r which w eJeft rather abruptly.
