which adorn the natives of those remote
regions, arc attested by all travellers, and
are mainly to be attributed to the use of
this Oil. The aim of Messrs. Burnett & Co.
has been to free it from the peculiar odor
which it has in this condition, and to unite
with it some approved tonics which stimu-
late the hair to a healthy and vigorous
growth. It will be found on trial to be the

FLORIMEL.
A Ncio Perfumie fr the fntatvkerchlef.
Tjjj exquisite bouquet is so highly con-
centrated that a single drop will leave its
peculiarand delightful fragrance upon the
handkerchief for many hours.
A NEW PERFUME.
Messrs. Joseph Burnett & Co., have
produced a new and most delightful per-
fume for the handkerchief, for which they
have chosen the very appropriate name of
"Florim ." Its odor is that of an ex-
quisite bouquet of choice and delicate
flowers, Without too much of that peculiar
sweetness so common in French Extracts,
which satiates and sickens the senses. It
is very neatly put up in bottles, wohiah sall
at fifty cents each, and may be ihad of the
principal Druggists and Perfumers.-

FOR THE COMPLEXION.
Of all the compounds we have yet seen
prepared as a cosinetic for the skin, there
is none that has a higher reputation, or
one that is so popular with the ladies as the
far-famed "Kalliston." It is scientifically
prepared, and is. a perfgme as well at toilet
wash. It imparts to the skin a peculiar
softness of texture, so desirable during the
prevalence of harsh drying winds or a hot
sun. It will, with a few applications, re-
move tan, freckles, sunburn, and all cuta-
:.io-! :-.-..-..-L It is extensively used for
th..... purses, and ladies who apply it can
exercise in the open air as freely as they
please, and experience no inconyen en.c
from raugh or isritated skin. This article
can be had of all druggists and perfumers
of any reputation. Joseph Burnett & Co.
are the Proprietors.-Boston Transcript.
THE TEETH.
How few people consider the import-
ance of preserving the teeth! and how ma-
ny would give thousands of dollars could
they regain them after the loss has be-2
come irreparable.I
Among the many preparations for pre-
serving the health and beauty of the Teeth
and Guins, we believe Burnett's Oriental
Tooth Was idesierves the highest rank.
The position which Mr. Burnett occu-
pies, as a chemist, his untiring energy and
rare skill, are a sufficient guarantee of the
excellence of each and all the preparations
bearing his name.
The Oriental Tooth Wash has, we know,
received the sanction and patronage of the
leading Dentists and Physicians in this
country. It is not only a powerful deter-
gent gild clqanserof thd teeth, but, by its
vegetable astringent properties, acts direct-
ly upon the caries, thereby most effectually
arresting decay, and forming a protective
and almost impervious coating in the cavi-
ty, even where the nerve is exposed. Its
action is also beneficial to the gums, keep-
ing them firmly attached to the teeth, and
preventing the bleeding and softness which
is now-a-days so com.mon. The Oriental
Tooth Wash is moreover ono of the pleas-
antest remedies in thel world; searching,
pungent, and aromatic, it imparts to the
breath a peculiarly clean and delightful
fragrance. We advise our readers to try
it.--Deatal Areiws.
SMOKING.-
Gentlemen who are addicted to the habit
of smoking will find, rnett's Oriental
Tooth Hll'hs an/ excellent detergent. It
also imparts to the breath a fragrance
peculiarly aromatic and pleasant.
ALL of the above Articles direct from
those Celebrated Chemists Messrs. Burnett
& Co., of Boston, are for sale in St. Aug-
ustine-only at
FAIRCHILD'S New Store.

Abstract of the Governor's
Message.
OFFICIAL REPORTS.
I invite your attention to the official re-
ports of the Comptroller and Treasurer as
to the financial condition of the State.
By reference to the repo t of the Comp-
troller, it w:ll be seen that the receipts
from the various sources for the fiscal year
1859 are $106,022 S6,and that the amount
of warrants issued during same period is
$104,879 12. The finance of the State
will require at your hands a rigid scrutiny
into all the appropriations by the Legisla-
[11 1 1 :,,.s i ,:,. v.i. .' the
A- __4- -L 5-_ -_ --
*- ^ I' l rt"6.'1 6__' 1 _-, LUC' e in-
crease of population, and the alternative of
retrenebmlint or increased taxation is pre-
sented. The current expense for criminal
prosecutions is largely on the increase, as
well as that of jurors and witnesses, and
should be reduced, if consent with a proper
enforcement of the laws and administra-
tion of justice.
STATE LOAN.
By vii tue of the authority vested in me
by "An act to provide for payment of the
debts of the State," and the amendment
thpreto, I negotiated a loan for the State in
the cities of Charleston and Savannah,
through the agency of Col. John W. Pear-
son, of two hundred and foity-one thousand
three hundred dollars, the greater part of
which has been disbursed in payment of
claims for services rendered in suppressing
Indian hostilities during the years 1855
and 1856. The report in detail of the
Disbursing Agent w;ll be submitted to you
in a few days, with a special recommenda-
tion that provision be made to insure the
payment of the loan at maturity.
INTERNAL INPROVEi ENTS.
No State, perhaps, in the Union has ac-
complished more (under the circumustiuces)
in so short a t;iec. Four yeats ago, the
St. Marks ruad, twenty nill'c in length and
worked by horse power, was the only road
in the State. We now have about 350
mrles of road graded and about 230 miles
of iron rail laid, upon which the cars are
running daily, and the iron purchased to
complete the balance of the roads graded.
The Florida Railroad is 154, the Florida
Atlantic and Gulf Central .Q0, the Pensa-
cola and Georgia, from T.llahassee to Lake
City, 105 and the St. Marks 21 mile in
length, respectively. The St. Marks road
has been completed for some time and pays
a handsome dividend. The iron rails have
been laid on about 130 miles of the Florida,
50 miles of the Florida Atlantic and Gulf
Central and 30 miles of the Pensacola and
Georgia Railroads, respectively. The Flor-
ida and the Florida Atlantic and Gulf Cen,
tral roads, it is expected, will be completed
at an early date, and the Pensacola and
Georgia road to Lake City by the 1st of
July or August 1860. The Pensacola and
Alabama Railroad, 45 miles in length, is
graded to the line dividing Florida and
Alabama, upon which about 20 miles of
jron rail has been laid and she iron pur-
chased for the balance of the road. That
portion of the work which lies in Alabama
is being vigorously prosecuted and will be
completed at an early date..
The Pensacola and Alabama Railroad
Company have not accepted the provisions
of the Internal Improvement law and arc
not required to report to, the Trustees the
gross receipts from the traffic of the road,
and we have no data fI'om that source upon
which to base an estimate as to its earnings.
When this road and other important roads
now under course of construction, which
will act as feeders to it, shall have been
completed, the Company may reasonably
expect a business which ll insure its sue-

A quickening impulse is manifest in
evesy branch of business in the districts
penetrated by the several lines of road.-
Thriving v;ilages have sprung up as by
magic and till increase in impuiort'ce in
propoiiou to the settlement of the adja-
cent country of which they are the com-
mercial centres. These evidences of pros-
pesity but imperfectly foreshadow, how-
over, the great importance of the system
and the benefits which must result from its
completion.
LANDS GRANTFPI B.Y CONGRESS TO AID IN
THTE CONSTRUCTION OP RAILROADS.
By the Act of Dec. 27, 1856, the State
of Florida accepted the lands granted by
Congress of May 17th, 1856, upon the


terms, conditions and restrictions imposed
in the Congressional Act, but as yet the
General Assembly has made no disposition
of said lands except those granted to aid in
constructing a Railroad from Pensacola to
the State line of Alabama, in the direction
of Montgomery.
The great value of these lands to the
Railroad Companies renders it highly im-
portant that such action should be taken as
may be necessary to fully secure said grant
to the Companies beneficially interested
therein. Such action would be simple and
said object could be easily accomplished,
were ea.-h -.f si.: liar ..fS r.-.-i. :driui] ti-
.'i cs:,-.n*, 1 he bb.a.t y a -J

each line claim the right to construct por-
tions thereof, a conflict of interest arises
which places some obstacles in the way of
an equitable adjustment. A difference of
opinion exists as to the necessity or pro-t
priety of any fi either legislation than that
in the 21st Section of the Internal Im-
provement law, as vill appear by reference
to the proceedings of the Senate at the
last scsion of the General Assembly pages
365, 897.
LUNATIC ASYLUM.
In my annual message I invited your
attention to the subject of a Lunatic Asylum
'in language as follows: "I am advised that
there are at the present time several insane
persons in the State who will probably be
sent off to asylums in other States as soon
as the requisite judicial proceedings are
had. Some of these persons have estates
adequate to the expenses of their mainten-
ance, but others are destitute and must be
chargeable to the State. It is due to the
State and to humanity that some more
permanent provision should be made for
this unfortunate class of persons, and to
this end I have consulted some experienced
mechanics, and have been advised that a
building of suitable dimensions for the
accommodation of 35 or 40 subjects may be
erected and completed in the most desirable
manner for about twenty thousand dollar,
($20,000,) and that it maybe so constructed
as to admit of enlargement by the erection
of other buildings as may be necessary or
desired. I therefore earnestly recommend
that the initiatory st ps be at once taken,
by the passage of an act provid;ag for the
erection of a building which may form the
nucleus of a well-appointed asylum, adequate
to the wants and comfort of this class of
the afflicted of our own State; that it be
provided in such act that such lunatics or
insane persons as have estates adequate to
their maintenance be charged therewith, at
such rate as the General Assembly may
think just and right, and that the State be
charged with the maintenance of such only
as are destitute." The current annual
expense for the maintenance of lunatics in
other States is $2,636 61, which is equal
to the interest on thirty-seven thousand six
hundred and sixty.five dollars 85 cents,
($37,665 85,) .t 7 per cent. As this item
is gradually increasing, it would be better,
on the score of economy even, to provide a
suitable building for this unfortunate class
of persons in our own State. I earnestly
recommend this subject to your serious at-
tention.
FEDERAL RELATIONS.
Prominent among the purposes for
which the Union was formed and its Con-
stitution "ordained," as announced by its
patriotic founders, was "to insure domestic
tranquillity." As regards this purpose,
passing events go to show that the work of
the statesmen of 1787 is likely to prove a
melancholy failure. Does the Union "in-
sure," does it any longer promise other-
wise than in words of mockery "to insure"
to the Southern States of' the confederacy,
"domestic tranquillity?"
Is it not manifest that in the bosoms of
the members of the paity now dominant
throughout the North, all fraternal feeling
towards us of the South is entirely dead?
W hen reminded of their constitutional obli-
gations, obligations fixed upon them alike
by the letter and spirit of the Constitution,
they appeal to a "higher law." Having
virtually annulled the written compact,
thereis no question that they would pro-
ceed to withdraw from the Usiou but for
the fact that, along with great pecuniary
advantages, it furnishes them facilities
which they would not otherwise enjoy for
the prosecution oftheir designs against the
institutions of the South.


That these hostile designs will continue
to be prosecuted, so long as the confederacy
lasts, would seem to be as certain as any
thing of the future. No less than this has
been publicly avowed by one'having au-I
thority to speak, in language which admits
of but one construction. The northern
statesman, most honored and trusted by his
section, and whom that section manifestly
intends to place at the head of the General
Government, instead of the tranquillityI
whi6h the Constitution guarantees us, has
proclaimed' an "irrepressible conflict,"
which means and can mean nothing but war
'-i.. a.. .:rij .:t.o to o metra I:.l:. .:.o rb-tnt
.J .,:ti n '..vi. ij *i i. -, at c, ,,,niilE.
t.o .: [ t .-, -.. ,ir. a'-;i a hipi
piness. As a sequel to that announcement,
following in the due order of events, comes
the development, not without bloodshed, of
plot connected in the North for the libera-
tion of the slaves of the South by a general
insut rection.
There can be no doubt that the so called
Republican palty, comprising a majority of
the Northern people and thus to all intents
constituting the Noith, Pre responsible for
John Brown'ssecheme of mingled villainy
gidfolly. Thatpaity, the Norshern people
by the elections which have occurred
since the Harper's Ferry catatrophe, ex-
hibit an unmistakable purpose of continu-
ing in power.
Its two groat engines of influence, the
press and the pulpit, are d'ily becoming
more in.alting and aggressive towards our
institutions and people. What else, then,
have we to expect, while the Union con-
tinues, but the repetition, no one can say
when, where, how often, or with what bloody
issues, of attempts like that lately thwarted
in Virginia?
It is worthy ofa passing thought, that
though African slavery is no longer an in-
stitution of most of the leading powers of
Christandoui-several of them, in whose
dominions it once existed, having abolished
it-yet none of them show any disposition
to interferefwith its existence hire. The
only States that threaten our peace, are
States united w1thus by that bond of Union,
the Constitution, designed to throw its
aegis of protection over all.
GreOt Britain, much as she has done and
suffered in the cause of abolition, and
though her flag waves over her own soil,
nearly within sight of the southern coast
of Florida, attempts nothing for the dis-
turbance of our repose. She knows too
well, and recognizes too fully, the obliga-
tions of International comity. We neither
fear her, nor have reason to fear her. Our
aggressions come from quite other than
/breigu sources. They come from men
who madly think that because connected
with us in our Republic, they are answera-
ble for our sins, and authorized, by virtue
of this responsibility, to wage a war of ex-
termination against our Institutions.
.You will find no difficulty in perceiving
the drift iii ... .:- .., nor dolconsi-
der it becoming either in myself or the oc-
casion to deal in language of doubtful im-
port.
True, Floridgs, as the youngest and least
populous of the Southern sovereignties,
can only follow in action the lead of her
sisters, yet this constitutes no reason why,
at a time demanding the freest, coqterence
and frankest expression tmong those joined
by a common destiny, she should remain
silent. Ibelieve that her voice should be
heard in "tones not loud but deep," in favor
of an eternal separation from those whose
wickedness and fanaticism forbid us longer
to live with them in peace and safety.
There are good grounds for the hope that
most of the Southern States will not con-
sent to see the General Government pass
into hands avowedly hostile to the South.
If such is their purpose, it is not unlikely
that they will prepare for the emergency of
the approaching Presidential election.
What, if any, steps will be necessary,
on your part, to provide for Florida's co-
operation with them in the contingency
suggested, I leave for the wisdom of the
Legislature to determine.
MILITIA AND PATROL LAWS.
In this connexion I deem it proper to
call your attention to the disorganized state
of the Militia inefficiency of the Patrol
Laws.
r "Our State has been so far happily exempt
from those frightful tragedies enacted else-,
Swhere, but the same elements of mischelf


exist among us, and our peace and security
may be disturbed by the same causes which
have operatedin other places. Such apathy
and indifference has beenmanifest in relation
to the laws regulating and governing the
militia that I am at a loss to suggest a
course by which the evil would beremed-
led.
RBut in view of the pressing emergency
for a thorough organization, Iwoald respect-
fally recommend that r'l the militia offices
in the State be vacated, that the Governor
be required-o order an election at an early
day to fill every militia office in the ;,tatf,
that. be t.e :i[pow[med i... fill by appointatme
,-ss..,.: tait, io anla, ,occur by a ,iii r ll
ul tkhe ii..:hi tIcs ;h t h .-r nfl
officers-thus apionlated, to beh umapite-at,
serve under penalty, for twelve months '
from the date of said appointment. In or-
der to encourage the organization of volun-
teer companies throughout the State, I
would recommend that provision be made
by which all persons subject to militia duty
might commute the same by the payment
of a per capital tax annually, which sums
should constitute a fund to arm and equip
the volunteers companies; provided said
companies should drill at least twelve days
in each year.
The laws governing the militia should be
so amended as to insure a summary collection
of all fines imposed by courts martial, and
should apply to the volunteer companies as
well as the militia.
Desiring that your action stmay redound
to the public good, I invoke the blessings
of Divine Providence upon your delibera- 1
tions.

ON THE LOSS OF FRIENDS.
"Friend after friend departs,
Who hathnotlost a friend?
There is no union here of hearts
That hath not here an end
Were this frailworldourfnal rest, .
Living or dying none were blest.
Beyond the flight of time
Beyond the reign of death
There surely is some blessed clime
When life is not a breath;
Nor life's affections transient fire,
Whose sparks fly upward and expire.
There is a world above
Where parting is unknown
A long eternity of love,
Form'd for the good above
And Faith beholds the dying here
Translated to that glorious sphere.,

Thus star by star declines
Till all are past away;
As morning high and higher shines
To pure and perfect day:
Nor sink those stars in empty night,
But hide themselves in Heaven's own light
ga. How to pronounce ough." The
ending syllable oughh," which is such a
terror to foreigners, is shown up in its sev-
eral pronounciations in the following lines:
Wife make me some dumplings of dough,
They're better than meat for my cough;
Pray, let them be boiled till hot through,
But not till they're heavy and tough.
Now I must be off to the plough;
And the boys, when they've had enough,
liMus keep the flies off with a bough,
While the old Mare drinks at the trough.

lowing:-"John C. Fremont headed the
list of subscribers in California, to the
monument to the late Senator Broderick.-
He gives $500.
The Charleston Courier adds the fol-
lowing statement, brief but what a volume
of crushing rebuke does it contain:
"The mother of John C. Fremont was,
ointerred in this city, and her grave, wa
believe, is not marked."

Christmas.
To-morrow is Christmas-the day of sa-
cred associations, and of merry making-a
sort of world's holiday; at least so far as
the world is Christianized. It is, relig-
iously interpreted, the natal day of the
glorious Redeemer; the day according to
tradition and according to the faith of ma-
y,when the Virgin Mother laid him in
manger-cradle. It is a holiday-a day
orreunions, forth change ofkind with-
es between friends; for rcureations; for
giftmaking; and best of all, for the annual
visit of good St. Nicholas, under his pet
name Santa Claus, to the little ones. A
benison on whatever adds to the innocent
happiness of Childhood! How many and
hqw many a row of stockings, lank, empty

0 happy, careless childhood; the only re-
ally sunshiny period in the whole life-

little too much of a woman, for such child-
ishness.
It is a little unfortunate on some ac-
counts, that this holiday should recur on
Sunday, because the sacredness of the
Sabbath may suffer a little from the "irre-
pressible conflict," (that is the phrase now-
adays,) between Sabbath quiet and Christ-
mas joyfulness. But as it has sometimes
been proposed in similar circumstances to
"'put off" the Fourth of July and the 22d
of February, so we propose that the noisier
demonstrations which would certainly be
very inappropriate to the sanctity of the
Sabbath. should beput off till Monday.
Meantime we wish our patrons and
friends, men, women, and especially child-
ren,

Governor's Message.
We publish on our first page an abstract
of the Governor's Message. We are glad
to add our commendation to that of the
press generally in reference to the tone and
wishes expressed upon matters of general
legislation. We wish that the governor
had made ad official recommendation of a
Penitentiary, an Institution very much
needed, as well as a general reform of our
criminal law which to say the least is as
bad as it can well be. The rconimmnoda
tion in reference to the State credit is well
worthy of attention, and we hope will be
acted on.

A&' A friend has condensed a "horse,"
article from a N. Y. paper, which woe pub.
lish to-day. We think well of fine horses,
and would have every man keep the best
he can afford for his own health and enjoy-
ment, and that of his family. But this ar-
ticle shows to what excesses of extrava-
gance, a mania on amny subject will carry
people. Horses are the fashion-thecfu-
rore, we may say, at the North just now,
and one might conclude from the article
referred to, that the ambition of the New
YoTkces is at present mainly condensed intc
an emulation with regard to horse flesh.
What next?

I am now supplying the !cale widL pur e Cog-
nac Branidy, in boLtles, be!h I for medical and
private use. The ihnimeiie success that lias
crowned my efforts to place a lpure Gin within
the reach of all, uuder ti. name of Aromatic
Schiedam Schnapps, aid to drive out of the
market the pr'nic'oua compoual d sold as Gin
throughout the cuuutry, led many leading drug-
gists, apothecaries and medical men, fpr some
years ipat, to solicit-me to pursue the same
course in regard to the article of Brandy. I
shliould have complied wich these requests from
all quarters long ago, but was deteried from it
by the fact, that owing to the exorbitant prices
of Brandy in France, consequent upon the short-
ness of the grape crop for some years, there
was no chance of my being able to import the
choicest Brindy. bottle it and sell it at ionlde-
rate price. Fortunately for me, the grape crop
for the last and previous year (and the prospect
for this) was abundant, and prices of Brandy
have fallen to the standard of ten years ago,-
The duty on Brandy is also seventy percent
lower, and I have now made arrangements
with four Brandy exporters in France, of the
highest repute, and am regularly receiving conl-
signmcmns of the best Co:,ae ic Brandy, which 1
am bottling and sg'ling aa \\ olf 's Gehuine Co-
gnac Brandy. 1 guarantee wih my seal, labels
and certificates, tie Brandy so bottled by me,
as the pure, unadulterated article, and it will
he found, when .used as at meodine, b.eve:ra.ge,
or a cordial, healthful and invigorating. Ithas
been a matlur of universal comlphiut, that a
bottle of pure, unmcixed French Brandy, was
very difliaut tc ohbtain, and ilhe prochacer, nine
times in ten, was deceived wilh a vile ncanufac-
tured imitation. Of ail descriptions of ardent
spirits, Brandy, fton its high price, has been
the one article that mnixers ud sellers have
turned their attlentioa to, and millions of gal-
lons of the so-called Frenchi Brandy have been
scattered annually through the land, and have
been the primary case of murders, suicides,
cruelties and crimes, and have sent thousands
to an early grave, self-destroyers, from delirium
trecmens, mania-a-pou and h ororro, laiames uon-
known, until unprincipled men begali to make
maddening coiomuunds and sell iL as the pure
French Br:iudy.
The vic,-ucs of pure French Brandly need not
be told by ne. They are known throughout
the world .- a medicine or mild stimulate. It
is, as ithe French nation poelictaiiy call it "Eau
d.e vic," the water of life. But this applies
to it oply when pure and unadulterated. Man-
lfactured with the fearfulingredients that make
a good iamitaiou, it becomes a death drink to
innocent tells of thousands of our race. To
remedy a fearful evil, I have comnlenced im-
porting Brandy, bottling it, and selling it as
"Wolte's Genauine Cognac Brandy." 1 ani
daily receiving orders from the druggists and
apothecaries in all parts of the Uniou, to sell it
for medical purposes.

A NEW PLEASURE.
We have always considered the real Far'i-
na Cologne Water as the most modest aid
proper luxury for our toilet table, but the
other day we were tempted by a stray bot-
tle of Burnett's Kalliston, prepared by
Messrs. Joseph Burnett & Co. We yield
it the palmh; the effect is salutary and the
perfume is exquisite; after the application
we fell as bland and balmy as a May morn-

to nale it less irresistible if they expect to
supply the demnand.-Boston Gazetoe.
