It combines all the properties which have

and is the result of a careful research, and
reiterated experiment. It contains a very

which adorn the natives of those remote
regions, are 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
blandest, pnd cleanest, and most disirablo
preparation ever offered to the publio.-Bos-

FLORIMEL.
A New Perfume for the Handkerchief.
This 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
"Florilmel." Its odor ig that of an eg.
quisite boquact of choice and delicate
flowers, without too mrch of that peculiar
sweetness so common in French Extracts,
which satiates and sickens the senses. It

FOR THE COMPLEXION.
Of all the compounds we have yet seen
prepared a.s g ccsmetie 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 perfume as well as 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, freck1ic, sunburn, and all cuta-
neous eruptions. It is extensively used for
these purposes, pd g4i p who apply it can
exercise i th in open air as freely as they
please, and experience no inconvenience
from raugh or irritated 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-
come ireparable.
Among the many preparations for pre-
serving the health and beauty of the Teeth
and Gums, we believe Burnett's Oriental
Tooth Wash deserves 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 Denti.sta and Physicians in this
country. It is not only a powerful deter-
gent and cleanser of the 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 common. The Oriental
Tooth Wash is moreover one of the pleas-
antest remedies in the world; searching,
pungent, and aromatic, it imparts to the
breath a peculiarly clean and delightful
fragrance. We advise our readers to try
it.-Dental News.
SMOKING-
Gentlemen who are addicted to the habit
of smoking will find Burnett's Oriental
Tooth Wash an excellent detergent. It
also imparts to the byxrth a fragrance
peculiarly aromatic and pleasant.
ALL of the above Artigles direct from
those Celebrated Chemists Messrs. Burnett
& Co., of Boston, are for sale in St. Aug-
ustine-only at
FAIRCHILD'S New Store.

Treason in the Pulpit!
T icn Ie.t.:.n Liberator publishes a aer-
mo [.preaehd ij'te tluro' hr "
Dover, N. H. by the Rev. Edwin' M.
Wheeluck, from which the "Leader," To-
routo, Canada con mucho gustC, quotes
copious "eloquent extracts eulogistic of
Capt. Brown of Harper's Ferry celebrity.",
The text was, "without shedding of blood,
there is no remission.-Heb. 9. 22."
As specimens of the Rev. gentleman's
blasphemous eloquence, we give the follow-
ing and commend them to the "Union-
loving men," of Boston, New York and
Philadolphia.
"Freedom for ten years weakly standing
oi the defensive, and for ten years defeat-
ed, has now become the assailant and has
now gained the victory. The Bunker Hill
of our second revolution has been fought,
and the second Warren has paid the glo-
ricu3 forfeit of his life. From the
martyrdom of Brown dates a new era, other
devoted men will follow ii his wake, avoid-
ing his error and will carry on to its full
results the work he has begun. The north
wants no more corn-stock generals, but at
real General. If an honest expression of
the wishes of the North could be taken,
John Brown would be the people's candi-
date for the Presidency and he would re-
ceive a million of votes. A few
years more and you will all take the very
ground upon which stands this his-soulod
and devoted man. Editors and Politioians
call him mad-and so he is to them; for
lie has builded his manly life of more than
three score years upon the fear and faith
of God, a thing which editors and politi-
cians, from the time of Christ till now,
have always counted as the proof of insan-
ity. One such man makes total depravity
impossible, and proves that American great-
peAs died not with Washington. The gal-
lows from which he ascends to heaven, will
be in our politics what the cross is in our
religion-the sign and symbol of supreme
self-devotedness, and from his sacrificial
blood the temporal salvation of four mil-
lions of our people shall yet spring. On
the second day of December he is to be
strangled in a Southern prison for obpeing
the sermon on t he Mount, But to be hang-
ed in Virginia is like being crucified in
Jerusalem-it is the last tribute which sin
pays to tribute. That State may
now fittingly put the living Washington to
death. But after all there is but little that
the rage of man can do, there is one above
greater than Virginia, gad across the ob-
scene roar of the slave power comes His
voice, sounding in the ears of that sacred
and manacled old man, "as much as ye
did it urto the least of these, my brethren,
ye did it unto me," and again "He that
loseth his life for my sake, shall find it
again."

A The venerable Alfred Griffith, of
the Baltimore M., Conference, after con-
tradicting a statement that he had visited
John Brown in jail at Charlestown, and
declaring that he never, to the best of his
knowledge, heard of him until his Harper's
Ferry raid, proceeds to give his opinion of
the whole band of insurgents as follows:
"As to my opinion of John Brown and
his coadjutors and accomplices, (whether
present or hundreds of miles away,) it is
that if any men, or set of men, ever forfeit-
ed their lives to the offended and violated
laws of their country, so did John Brown
and his associates in crime-for they had,
one and all, both directly and constructive-
ly, committed and perpetrated the highest
grade of crime known to the criminal juris-
prudence of all the civilized nations of the
earth through all periods of their history, to
wit: Murder, sedieious insurrection and
treason, and I have honored, and still hon-
or, Virginia, no less for her fearless firm-
ness than for her vigilance in prosecuting
with fairness, to condign punishment, the
miserable perpetrators.


[WRITTEN FOR THE ST. AUGUSTINs EXAMINER.]
THE ORPHAN'S PRAYER.
I am weary, oh! so weary,
And I almost long to die;
I do not fear as many do
In the deep cold grave to lie.

For those I love are cold in death,
And I cannot live alone;
In my shorn heart I'll pray for God
To call the wanderer home.

i1sav6 tk-'e' t Ieot. offesta'thes 5
And bade sad memories flee;
But, ah amid the thoughtless throng,
There was no rest for me.

I have gazed on many a lifeless form,
With a sad and tearful eye ;
And have turned away with a prayer to God,
Soon in death like them to lie.

The very flowers I love so much
Wither as I draw nigh ;
Vainly their beauty T try to keep them,
They will droop and fade and die.

Oh! Father I call the Orphan child,
Oh! let my journey clo:c;
The drooping brow would seek for rest,
Give thy weary child repose.

VALUE OF THE SORIPTURES,-As the
beauty of the world is setoff by a graceful
variety, so is it in the Scriptures. There
are sublime truth that the most aspiring
reason of man cannot overtop; and there are
more plain and easy truths on which the
weakest capacity may converse with delight
and satisfaction. No man is offended with
his garden for having a shady thicket in it;
no more should we be offended with the
word of God, that among so many fair and
openwalks we here and there meet with a
thicket that the eye of human reason cannot
look through.-Bishop Hopkins.
AN IRtSH OFIan0B, upon seeing a picture
sketched upon a wall in America, exclaim-
ed.-
"It is a fine painting, but it was never
done in America."
"Oh, sir," says his friend, "don't you see
it is on a solid wall, and therefore must
have been done in this country ?"
"Ah," replies he, "I see that plain
enough; but I only meant that the man who
did it was never in America."

depend upon the probity, the genuine in-

that men will curb those passions which
hurry them into danger, if not into ruin,
and such is our reliance on the majestic
control of an over-ruling providence in hu-

Literary Notices.
S THE OLD STONE MANSION, is the titli
of a volume for which we are indebted to
the enterprising house of Peterson and
Brothers, Philadelphia. It is written by
Charles J. Peterson, an author to whom
- the public is indebted for several tales o
More or less interest. This hook is written
in the autobiographic style; a style which
affords opportunity for liveliness, piquancy
and versatility, and Mr. Peterson evident
.e ly knows how to handle all these elements
3 of power, with ability. The life of the book
e is diffused from the first page to the last
without faltering, which certainly is quite
an evidence of skill in construction, as wel
as of capacity to support a plot and carry
r, it successfully to its denouement. There
os is a great deal that is natural, muclh that is
1. startling, and still more that is truthful
y and truthfully delineated in these page.
1; We can hardly see how a men, with hi;
*- strong, stern nature, could read out so mi
d nutely and circumstantially those passages
e in the love-history of a young girl, as if
s with all their woe and blight and disap-
d pointmont, t ey lAid bn :o itten with a
d pen of Ire uon hiis ... h:.err And then
g; again his acute perception of the envying
e that burn i the hearts of women tQwards
e each other, and the remorseless cruelty
t. and bitterness with which they peck a
d and denounce each other, in the circles
n called fashionable, show him to be a wise
d; observer and a fearless exposer of those
r- Fabian tactics which are the usual mode of
o warfare among of rival blles. The hero anc
e heroine of the story are lovers of course
e and of course they had an interesting quar
n rel, arising from the wilfulness of the lady
1- and the inflexibility of the gentleman-
y, which quarrel at the close of the book is
n nicely made up in a marriage.
s; The book will repay a perusal.
e Nlicaragua-Past, Present and Fu
e ture, is also on our table. We have no
e yet had time to read it. We have exer
a cised our glancing faculty upon it merely
s- and should judge it a readable book.
n- Fowler and Wells have sent us a little
e blue volume, The Right Word in the
f Right Flace, which contains a great dea
l of valuable information, in the form of a
k condensed dictionary of synonyms, techni
f cal terms, foreign phrases, etc. It is a
d good book to lie on any bodj's writing
d table, and to be frequently consulted.
e Jessie Worthington, is another volume we
y- -have received from the Am. S. S. Union.
SEvery new publication with which that so,
I society favors us, increases the strength of
c our conviction that they are doing a noble
y work, approved of heaven, for the rising
d generation. This book mums have been
- written by one who has sounded the depthis
- of child-nature, and knows where to foster
d and where to prune, It is the best com-
s mendation we can give of the volume, to
d say that apr little people read it with a de-
- light almost amouqting to fascination.

- are the titles of books from the same source,
e which teach moral lessons to the little ones

- The Telegraph, a newspaper recently
k started at Cedar Keys, looks and reads

dict that his capability and enterprise will

The Fair.
The Fair held by the Ladies of the Ro-
man Catholic Church on the 2Qtlo 27th and
28th., as noticed in our advertisement, we
understand was highly satisfactory and
successful. The amount of the proceeds
has not been named to us, but it must have
been by no means inconsiderable, We al-
ways wish well to such undertakings, and
whether we did or not, being in the hands
of the Ladies, they would be certain to sue-
ceed.
The halls were tastefully decorated, the
articles for sale were well chosen and desi-
rable, either for use, ornament, or for pres-
ents, the viands were savory, the bouquets
beautiful, the children all animation over
their dolls and candies, the gentleman
were in gallant and generous humor, and
the Ladies, bless their hearts-were liyely,
chatty, and very lovely.
The avails of this fair, as we have be-
fore stated, are devoted to the educational
projects now in movement in this City. A
very worthy object, which should be cheer-
fully and faithfully sustained by our people,
both Catholic and Protestant.

1 "Arrivals."
a We regret to learn that there has been
some disturbed feeling with regard to the
lists of arrivals at the different houses ot
entertainment in this City, which we have
recently published. It certainly is a mat-
ter of no interest to us, whether the arri.
* vals are published or not0 and weo do not
wish to lay ourselves open to any censure
in the matter.
We have then simply to add that if
those gentlemanwho patronise ouradvertis-
ing columns will frnilsh a list of the
arrivals at their respective houses, every
Thursday morning, we will give such lists
the benefit of publication.

Masoniq.,
The officers of St. Johns Lodge No. 12,
of this city for the ensuing year were in-
stalled on St. Johns day 27th inst., at their
Hall by Bro. Past Master W. S. Harris of
Marion Lodge, Ocala. After the ceremony)
Bro. past Master METOALF of Peoria
Lodge No. 46, Illinois made to the Brethren
an eloquent and spirited address. After
closing the Lodge 4 collation was served up
at which all enjoyed themselves in the most
pleasant manner.
M Christmas has had a plenty of on-
joyment made out of it by our colored pop-
ulation, Frep-and-easy holidays are these
for them, and most intensely have they de-
voted themselves to the pleasures of the
season. Music and dancing have been in
the ascendent, and every kind of indul-
gence suited to their condition has been
granted them. We areall happy in giving
this happiness to our slaves, and there are
few slave holders who would not submit to
real inconvenience in the demand for ser-
vice, rather than infringe upon the leisure
and jollity of the servant's Christmas. We
hope the pity's northern guests have looked
in upon some of the "Colored" festive
scenes which have been under high pres-
sure this week. They would hardly fail to
be convinced that at least there are seasons
'and occasions when the "oppression" they
hear so many changes rung upon in the
distance, is but a chimera, and that the
Southern bondslave can be a very happy
fellow after all.
Mi,. It is onoeded hby the Republicans,
in words at least, that a State on coming
into the Uniqq, shall say whether it will
have slavery qr not. How then can they
say, that the citizens of the States cannot
carry their property with them into the
Territories-the comoson property of the
Union--before they become States? Nei-
ther Congress, nor the Territoral Legisla-
tures can prevent it. The State alone has
the right, the power, and the word to deter-
mine the matter.
Them's our sentiments, and we will live
and die by them!


Hon. E. Everett on the Union.
The I-Ion, E. Everett in his speech at
r Fanouil Hall on the 8th inst., said:
"I greatly fear that the mass of the corn
munity, long neccustomed to treat all alarm
for the stability of the Union as ground-
less, all professed anxiety for its preserva-.
tion as insincere, or, if sincere, the result
r of nervous timidity, have unfitted them-
selves to measure the extent and the urgen-
cy of the existing danger. It is my own
deliberate conviction, formed from some
opportunities of personal observation, and
from friendly correspondence with other
parts of the country, (though I carry on
- none of a political nature,) that we are on
the very verge of a convulsions which wlll
shake the Union to its foundation; and
that a few more steps forward, in the di-
rection in which affairs have moved for a
few years past, will bring us to the catas-
trophe.
I have hoard it urged on former, occa-
sions of public alarm that it m nst be
e groundless, because business goes on as
usual and the theaters are open, andstocks
keep p. Si, thesp, appearancessmay all
be dlusive; The great social. machine
moves with a momentum that cannot be
suddenly stopped. The ordinary opera-
tions of business went on in France; in the
Revolution of 1789, till the annihilation of
the circulating medium puta stop to every-
thing that required its use. The theaters
and all the other places of public amuse-
ment were crowded to madnesspin the reign
of terror. The Freneh stocks never stood
better than they did in Paris on the 21st
of February, 1848. On the 24th of that
s month Louis Philippe was flying in dis-
r guise from his capital, the Tuileries were
8 sacked, and the oldest monarchy in Eeurope
* had ceased to exist."

gustine Examiner.]
The Moonlight Sail Near Naples.
As the twilight was falling, we sailed
slowly along the shore, the landscape floated
in a gentle evening breeze, and a cool wind
sprung up, from thp murmuring water. By
degrees the sounds on the shore died away,
one star after another appeared through
the fading splendor, and a holy stillppss
B reigned over the water, broken only by the
f monotonous plashl of the oars, and when here
and there an inhabitant of the deep, sprang
up. And now a fire was made; brightly
thelight played over the waves; innumer-
able white moths, attracted by the light
and the brilliance plunged into a shining
grave, again to become a bait for the fishes;
and behold a beautiful spectacle began.
Through the smoke of the mountain, sparks
mounted up like fire-balls, and either van-
ished high in the air, or descended again
in a luminous shower. At times, and usu-
ally in the darkness, the whole body of
smoke burst into flame; then, from time to
time, the mountain threw out a shower of
stones, and the glowing mass emitted lumi-
nous sparks. The vast magnificence is
splendidly reflected in the agitated water,
and it seems if the deep opened and
the flames mount up from its bo-
som, gradually the smoke becomes
more brilliant, first on the summit,
then lower down; like a silver cloud it
hovered over the mountain; a gust of wind
separated it, and now the moon appeared
above, in royal grandeur and glory, a
magnificent spectacle, Serenely it now
ascended higher, and its tremulous silver
poured upon the gulf, like light upon the
many folds of a mantle. We now quiet-
ly glided into the friendly rays, and the
slumbering shore, with its woods and hills,
lay in the indistinct, glimmering twilight,
under me the tossing waves, over me the
eternal stars, and the vast arch of night,
then memory descended on the tremulous
rays,: and my mind gathered you, my
distant loved ones, around me. In the east
there was now a ruddy glow, only the
morning-star still shone brightly, and from
the Water a light mist rose up Then we
landed with rich treasures, and, as if new-
born, I went through the densely-covered
thickets, and the slumbering cottages.-
Gradually the light broke, the shades of
night vanished, and the bustle of day com-
menced again. Q that the dream of my
life may be as this night, my awakening as
'this morning.
A Boy was frightened to death at Ottawa,
Canada, on the 2d, under the following
circumstances: Some men were about to
slaughter an ox, and had attached one end
of the rope to the horns, and passed the
other through the door intq the slaqghter-
house, and were driving the animal in.
The boy, Simon O'Donnell, held a candle-
stick in one corner to throw light on the
proceedings. When the beast was driven
in, it appears that it made a sudden move-
ment toward the corner where the boy was,
and was instantly seized by the nose by one
of the butcher's dogs, when it roared out
loudly, and the boy dropped to the ground
in an instant, perfectly dead.


Report of the Referee.-A. C. Bradley, the
referee in the Forrest Divorce case; has
made his final report to the Superior Court
of the city of New York. The following is
the material past :
Catharine N. Forrest vs. Edwin Forrest.
To the Superior Court:-The subscriber,
the referee named in the judgment of the
Court in. this cause, the 24th day of July,
1856, respectfully reports: That he has
been attended by the respective parties, and
heard their proofs on the matter referred to
him in the said judgment; that having re-
gard to the circumstances of the parties
respectively, the snm of four thousand dol-
lars per annum would be a suitable allowance
to the plaintiff for her support; that the
same should be payable from the 19th day
of November, 1850, the day when this suit
was commenced, quarterly, on the first days
of February, May, August and November,
in each year; that so much thereof as shall
have fallen due at the time of the decision
of the Court on hearing of this cause on this
report, to be paid within thirty days there-
after, and the residue as it -becomes due, to

A CHARMING young lady, of beauty and
accomplishment, passed through Norfolk
last week, en route for St. Louis. She was
forwarded by express-a package of soomiles,
labeled in rose-color. It was a French girl,

further, in the hearing of a couple of gene
tlemen, that Mr. Kitts had found her a
poor girl, suffering from hemorrhage of the
lungs, and that he had treated her as a
sister. For about seven months he had
been maintaining her altogether, hut he
had been suffering from neqralgia in the
head, and had taken largely of qunine.
She thinks that his head was effected,
which, added to his pecuniary circumstan-
ces, urged him to self destruction. He told
her that he had lands in Illinois, and if he
could trade them to his father, and raise
some money, he would go to Baltimore
and marry her. The girl is about twenty
five years of age, and is of English parent-
age, She seemed greatly distressed, and
wept bitterly during the recital of her story.

Wolfe's genuine Port Wine,
Wolfe's Genuine Madeira wine,
Wolfe's Genuine Sjherry Wine.
I am now supplying the trade with pure Cog-
nac Brandy, in bottles, both for medical and
private use. The immense success that has
crowned my efforts to place a pure Gin within
the reach of all, under the name of Aromatic
Schiedam Schnapps, and to drive out of the
market the pernicious compound sold as Gin
throughout the country, led many leading drug-
gists, apothecaries and medical men, for some
years past, to solicit me to pursue the same
course in regard to the article of Brandy. I
should have complied with these requests from
all quarters long ago, but was deterred 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 Brandy, bottle it and sell it at mode-
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 per cent
lower, and I have now made arrangements
with four Brandy exporters in France, of the
highest repute, and am regularly receiving con-
signments of the best Cognac Brandy, which I
am bottling and selling as Wolfe's Genuine Co-
gnac Brqndy, I guarantee with my seal, labels
and certificates, the Brandy so bottled by me,
as the pure, unadulterated article, and it will
be found, when used as a medicine, a beverage,
or a cordial, healthful and invigorating. It has
been a matter of universal complaint, that a
bottle of pure, unmixed French Brandy, was
very difficult to obtain, and the purchaser, nine
times in ten, was deceived with a vile manufac-
tured imitation. Of all descriptions of ardent
spirits, Brandy, from its high price, has been
the one article that mixers and sellers have
turned their attention to, and millions of gal-
lons of the so-called French Brandy have been
scattered annually through the land, and have
been the primary cause of murders, suicides,
cruelties aand crimes, and have sent thousands
to an early grave, self-destroyers, from delirum
tremens, mania-a-potu and horrors, names un-
kilwn, until unprincipled men began to make
maddening compounds and sell it as the pure
IFrench Brandy.
The virtues of pure French Brandy need not
be told by me. They are known throughout
the world as a medicine or mild stimulant. It
is, as the French nation poetically call it "Eau
do vie," the water of life. But this applies
to it only when pure and unadulterated. Man-
ufactured with the fearful ingredients that make
a good imitation, it becomes a death duink to
innocent tens of thousands of our race, To
remedy a fearful evil, I have commenced im-
porting Brandy, bottling it, and selling it aa
"Wolfe's Genuine Cognac Brandy." I am
daily receiving orders from the druggists and
apothecaries in all parts of the Union, to sell it
for medical purposes.
