I love to think of Heaven,
As a country fair and bright,
Its inhabitants are radiant,
In robes of spotless white;
I love to sketch its beauties,
As far as I can trace,
Its smiles of rapture beaming
On every joy-lit face.
But oh, it seems more beautiful
To those who weary roam,
To contemplate the, happy thought

The homes of earth are beautiful
When sanctified by grace,
But that one will be brighter still
Before our Father's face.
There will be no more crying,
No sighing and no care,
No fading of the blooming cheek
That oft awakes our fear.
No vacant seats, no sorrow,
No trial will be there,
A home with all its pleasures,
A home without a care.

I love to think of Heaven
As a place of glory bright,
Its jewelled walls all brilliant
With floods of living light.
Thl living crowns all shining
On brows that know no care,
Its thrilling music streaming ,
From every harp-string there;
But oh, methinks that o'er the thought
A matchless charm is thrown,
That binds in beauty round the heart
That Heaven is a home!

My Mother.
What pleasing yet allowed associations
cluster around the name of Mother!-
What long pent-up fountains bursts forth
as memory takes us by the hand and leads
us far back through the mazy labyrinths
of the past, when blessed with the love,
guidance, and admonitions of that spirit
whom Heayen _detined .ustoa.all Mather.
A mother's love-how pure, how devoted!
rhe sunshine of prosperity, and the dark-
storms of adversity, alike fail to quench
the flame which Montgomery has most
beautifully described:
A Mother's Love! hlow sweet the name!
What is a Mother's Love?
The noblest, purest, tenderest flame
That kindles from above,
Within a heart of earthly mould,
As much of heaven 4s heart can hold,
Nor through eternity grows cold ;
This is a Mother's Love!
Kind reader, hast thou been bereft of
such a treasure? Hast thou been called to
take the last lingering look upon her who
was dearest to thee of earth. and whose
latest breath, perchance, was spent in pray-
er for her child? As her cold and lifeless
remains were consigned to the "narrow
house," to be forever hid from thy longing
gaze, did not the consciousness that thou
wert indeed motherless well nigh o'er-
whelm thee? (No mother-whata thought.)
If so, well know'st thou how to sympathise
with a kindred spirit. Well might angles,
with unruffled pinions, hover round a
a heart thus rudely shattered.
Methinks, while gazing upward to Hea-
ven's blue vault, that were the starry veil
thrown aside, I should see the same famil-
iar face (save it were illuminated by the
glory which proceedeth from the Throne,)
while the eye, beaming with its wonted
love and toderness, seemed silently to
speak of that heaven which is now her
home; and that if faithful in striving to, es-
cape the pollutions of earth, I too might
share in the glories revealed in His king-
dom, and enjoy her society without inter-
ruption through the vast cycles of eternity.
Some have said that time will lessen the
affection for departed friends-=-that it will
almost or wholly efface their remembrance
from the heart. Such experience has ever
been a stranger to us, and we trust the sq-
ored precincts of our hearts may never wit-
ness an intrusion of that nature. Though
many years have passed, into oblivion's
dewy vale since a sainted mother and other
"loved ones" were with us in the flesh, yet
how distinctly do we remember each look
-each tone. 'Tis all in vivid array before
the mind's eye, and we almost fancy that
we again feel the soft claps of the hand,
and the good-night kiss as in the days of
"long ago." We wake from the dream
only to find it an illusion, yet we are con-
soled by the recollection that these heart
gems arc sacredly treasured in memory's
casket. Do we not feeool their loss as keen-

ly as now then? Ah, yes! Though we
have appeared to the world while mingling
in its society, to have forgotten the past
and its mournful associations, yet had they
been gifted with the power of divination,
they would have seen it was "but a name,"
-that mirth would gratefully have given
place to tears. They saw not the sorrow
lurking within the secret borders of the
soul. We have sadly proved the impossi-
bility of contract with the world repairing
the breach which the icy fingers of death,
playing among the, heart-strings f tho-se

added unto us, more sensible are we of the
irreparable loss which we snatained. There
is indeed
"No union here of hearts
That hath not here an end."
Our friends, where are they? They are
not with us now. No, they have safely
passed over the river. But we would not
mmumur our Father thought it best. He
saw that buds so delicately formed, if left
to the cold, blighting influences of earth,
would wither and die so he kindly trans-
planted them to a better clime, and they
now bloom in angelic loveliness and beau-
ty.--NVcw Yorker.

Are Babies to be Taught to
We copy the following from the South-
ern Medical and Surgical Journal.
"People talk about "teaching, babies to
walk;" but babies do not need teaching,
for they will get up and walk when their
legs are strong enough, and it does harm to
do so before; in this, as in very many other
things, babies would be all the better for
being left to themselves. But this does
suit some mothers, who are in a hurry to
see their children walk; such mothers can-
not rest contented without putting their
children into leading-strings, or gocarts, or
leading them with the hand. All that
ahty acn y-rallf gc-totr their pains "is
the sight of their children's bandy legs
and crooked ankles, au neahy oiaga3
to walk before their time. Who would be
a baby ?
"But though a baby should not be hur-
ried in walking, it should be allowed to
keep moving all day long, while it is awake
for limbs cannot get strong unless they are
used. The best plan is, to put a piece of
soft matting and a piece of carpet on the
floor, and put the baby down upon them to
stretch, roll, and tumble about like other
young creatures. If it has a ball or a rag-
doll to crawl about after, it will, besides,
be very little trouble, and be making its
limbs strong, ready to walk by-and-by. It
is a great pity to accustom a baby to be
nursed for it only does it harm, and gives
the mother a world of trouble in the bar-
gain. In the summer, it is a good plan to
spread the matting and carpet on the grass
in the garden, and put baby down on them
to use its limbs in the pure air and light.
In short, wherever it is, and whatever it
does, it should keep moving all the time.-
The birds the beast, the fish, and the creep-
ing things are scarcely ever five minutes
together in the day-time. Moving brings
life and health to all things, babies among
the rest."

Alas! How True!
No wreck is so fearful, so shocking to
the sight, as that of a young, promising
and intelligent man, ruined almost beyond
recovery, by dissipation and drunkenness.
Infamy is written on his countenance, and
Folly hangs out her waymarks on his wast-
ing and polluted form, to warn others of
the madness of imitating his example.-
And yet the voice of Wisdom is not heard
---her counsels are urheeded-her warn-
ings are disregarded, and hundreds, yea,
thousands of our noblest spirits and bright-
est intellects madly rush on in wild deliri-
um and reckless folly to sure destruction
and disgrace. The tide is an overwhelm-
ing one, and is fast sweeping away the
youth and flower of the country. What
can stay this rapid tide of wholesale de-
struction? Where sleeps our noble army
of true philanthropists? Where slumber
the Christian ministry? The harvest is
truly great, and where are the laborers ?-
Our young men are rushing madly on tc
ruin, inteuperence is becoming a mania-
a fashion-a necessary evil, which few
men think of destroying or even of check-

Tactless People.
We believe it is generally admitted that
the most agreeable associates, in the every
day'intercourse of society, are those who
put us in a good humor with ourselves.
Tactless people have a wonderful faculty of
effecting the very opposite. However well
tuned may be the instrument they touch,
their rough, inconsequent fingers always
strike some jarring string. Wounded sen-

NO. 11.





There istan a .t tpl. ofua certain of-
ficer who, having lost a' arm in battle, ever
after judged of the iigh breeding and
good nature of the persons presented to him
by noticing whether th'tir eyes wandeyd
to the empty coat-sleeve. He knew that
those who appeared perfectly unconscious of
his loos were influence by. considerate deli-
cacy; while those whose eyes were con-
stantly turned to the former locality of the
deficient member, had souls of a rude tex-
ture, insensible to fine perceptions or sym-
pathetic emotions. Tactless people belong
to this last mentioned order of beings, and
seem to possess an especial gift for spying
out and pitilessly dragging to light imper-
fections which politeness ignores.
Their scrutinizing eyes are ever upon a
voyage of discovery, and who does not
shrink from their merciless scanning?
Who has not felt that
"Being observed
When observation is not sympathy
Is just being tortured."
Yet from this torture we never need
hope to escape while a member--especially
a feminine member-of the tactless family
is present. Be sure her lynx eyes will de-
tect the first unwelcome thread of silver
that winds its shining way among raven
locks, and will as certainly proclaim the
unumapected intrfidef:T-nut she makes the
announcement with no malicious intent,

yet unreconciled to the sore necessity of
growing old. Your tactless friend seems
physically unable to avoid personalities.
Let a pair of smiling lips disclose pearls of
strikingly uiatural whiteness and regu-
larity, and she is immediately impelled to
descant upon false teeth. She unfailingly
discusses the angularity and want of grace
of meagre people before those who are vain-
ly seeking flesh in cod liver oil and every
other known promoter of rounded outlines;
and she invariably expresses her disgust
for unseemly rotundity before unfortunates
who are martyrizing themselves by futile
efforts to reduce their unsymetrical pro-
portions through compression and starva-
tion, or to conceal them by manifold arts
of the toilette.
Tactless people are especially given to
criticize dress. Woe to the hapless fair
one who has been forced by poverty into
some little, untasteful expedient--or who
bears about her a darn, or a slight fracture,
which she nervously hoped might escape
notice! Beyond all peradventure, a pair of
rebuking, tactless eyes will, forthwith,
fasten upon the imperfection!
Beware, too, of the hands of the tactless.
They are human magnets to attract and
draw out defects. If a vase of flowers is
turned to the wall to hide an unsighty
crack-if a cushion is arranged on a sofa to
conceal an unlucky rent-if a curtain is ad-
justed over a window to veil a broken
pane-if a footstool is carefully over an oil
stain oA the carpet-their hands, as if by
instinct, drag away the friendly screen and
reveal the hidden offence!
As for French gold, and plated silver,
and paste diamonds, and imitation lace,
dyed silks, cleaned gloves, and other gen.
* tool shams and expedients, there is not the
faintest chance that they will pass current
with your tactless guest. If, perforce, her
lips are silent, the close investigation and
the significant glances of her tell-tale eyes
quickly announce that she is not duped by
the imposture!
Then, if there is a sore subject to any
one present, it is always stumbled upon.
(though with no unkind intention,) by
these tactless individuals. They always
talk of property to those who are vainlj
struggling to keep up appearances. They
twill discourse. about profligate sons and
i thankless daughters before -'.rrowin;
parents, and rail at unworthy hubmind
before heart-broken wives, and,:u th

wretchedness of marriage before ill-matched
partners. If a girl has been jilted, they
innocently endeavor to entertain her with
an account of the wedding of a gay young
friend. If a sick child lies gasping in its
mother's arms, the consolation they offer is
a history of the deaths they have known
from just such illnesses! They are very
much surprised if an impression slowly
reaches them that they have created confu-
sion or occasioned distress. They assure
you they had no such design-and doubt-
le s th.:- had n.:,ao. It. was only the absence

renr'id'rd them so obnoxous as company n3,t
and which will always cause their .presence
to be dreaded and shunned
Singularly enough, their own sensibilities
are remarkably acute. No one can be more
quickly wounded than they, if- their blunt
speeches are retorted, and the arrows sent
back hit their own vulnerable points.
Do we estimate "tact" too highly in
thinking it a positive virtue, one of the
indesponsable elements of an agreeable
character? Was it not Dr. Johnson who
said that politeness was "benevolence in
trifles?" If politeness be the offspring of
good feeling evinced in social minutiae, tact
as certainly springs from the amiability
which is thoughtful to spare others pain.
Many a woman, endowed with noble
attributes, and rich in sterling virtues, has
passed through life little appreciated, and
seldom sought after, because she was
lamentably deficient in this one conciliating,
harmonizing quality of tact; because she
always rendered those with whom she
associated discontented with themselves,
and that engendered discontent with her.
A writer who has evidently weighed the
importance of the 'social art of making
one's-self acceptable to others, by rendering
others pleased with themselves, jocosely
advises a man, who has failed in inspiring
a woman with love for him, "to fill her

jalue of thword "tact.",
Psalms of David.
The last psalm ends with a chorus to the
praise of God, in which the poet calls on
all people, all instruments of sacred music,
all the elements, and all the stars to join.
Sublime finale of that opera of sixty years
sung by the shepherd, the hero, the king,
and the old man! In this closing psalm we
see the almost inarticulate enthusiasm of
the lyric poet; so rapidly do the words
press to his lips, floating towards God
their source, like the smoke of a great fire
of the soul wafted by the tempest! Here
we see David, ox rather the human heart
itself with all its God-given notes of grief,
joy, tears, and adoration-poetry sanctified
to its highest expression; a vase of perfume
broken on the step of the temple, and shed-
ding abroad its odors from the heart of
David to the heart of all humanity! He-
brew, Christian, or even Mohammedan,
every religion, every complaint, every
prayer has taken from this Vase, shed on
the. heights of Jerusalem, wherewith to
give forth their accents. The little shep-
herd has become the master of the sacred
choir of the universe. There is not a wor-
ship on earth which prays not with his
words, or sings not with his voice. A
chord of his harp is to be found in all
choirs, resounding every where and for
ever in unison with the echoes of Horeb
andEngaddi! David is the psalmit of
eternity; what a destiny-what a power
hath poetry when inspired b.y God. As
for myself, when my spirit is excited, or
devotional, cr sad, and seeks for an echo to
its enthusiasm, its devotion, or its melan-
choly, I do not open Pindar or Harace or
Hafiz, those purely Academic poets; neith-
er do I find within myself murmurings to
express my emotion. I open the Book of
Psalms, and there I find words which seem
- to issue from the soul of the ages, and
which penetrate even to the heart of all
generations. Happy the bard who has
thus become the eternal hymn, the personi-
fied prayer and complaint of all humanity!
If we look back to that remote ago when
such songs resounded over the world; if we
t consider that, while the lyric poetry of all
r the most cultivated nations only sang of
* wine, love, blood, and the victories of
coursers at the games of Elidus, we are
seized with profound astonishment at the
mystic accents of the shepherd-prophet,
who speaks to God the Creator as one friend
to another, who understands and praises
His great works, admires His justice, im-
plores His mercy, and becomes, as it were
an anticipative echo of the evangelic poetry
Speaking the soft words of Christ before
Shis coming. Prophet or not, as he may be
y considered by Christian or sceptic, none
d can deny in the poet-king an inspiration

Live Not For Self Alone.
Live not for self alone, should be the
language of every thinking, reflecting mind.
Let us go to the flowers, the streams, the
trees, and the birds, and learn wisdom.
Do the little flowers that sparkle so beau-
tifully through the dew and sunshine, live
alone for themselves? No, no! Do they not
cheer our lonely walks, do we not gaze on
them, inhale their fragrance, and pass on
better than we came, feeling that they
have ministered to our perceptions of the
.-eautiful? andve to the bees

and beauty.
Does the wide-spreading tree under
whose grateful shade we recline, when the
noon-day sun is oppressive, live for itself
alone? We answer, no, for it gives a happy
home to many a tiny insect; there, too, the
little bird finds a resting-place when his
little wings are tired of soaring up so high,
and a secure asylum wherein to build their
tiny nests and to rear their defenseless and
unfledged broods. And, too, it gives sup-
port to many a tender vine. It also ab-
sorbs the poisonous vapors in the atmos-
phere that would otherwise scatter disease
and death broadcast over our land, And it
helps to clothe the earth in majesty and.
Does the mighty river or the- laughing
little brook that ripples so merrily along,
live alone for themselves? Not so, for on
the broad and mighty bosom of yon tran-
quil river are borne the fortunes, the hopes
and the fears of many. And who can tell
how many millions of the finny tribes it
gives a happy home? And the little laugh-
ing rippling brook, too, gives forth its .
measure of happiness and joy. Although
it may be but a drop in the mighty ocean,
yet still it is hastening on to pay its tribute

even the grass which tels iLs influence
has a brighter hue. The minnows find -
life and happiness in its pl-acid waters, and
men and animals seek its brink to assuage
their thirst and enjoy the shadow of the
trees which it nourishes.
Does the bright-hued bird as he soars up-
wards in the air live alone for himself? .i
No, his songs are a blessing to earth's weary,
care-worn travelers. I have seen the poor
man sad and despondent as he went home
from his daily work, for he knew not how to
obtain food for his little ones. Then I
tuned one of my sweetest songs for his ear,
and he looked upward, saying: Behold,
the fowls of the air, for they sow not, neither
do they reap, nor gather into barns, yet my
heavenly Father feedeth them. Am I not
better than they ?" And he look of gloom
changed to one of cheerfulness and hope.
Then, reader, do yon think that the manr
or the woman who lives alone for him or
herself knows what true happiness is, or can
be as happy as those who scatter sunshine
and joy around them? Experience teaches
us that no pleasure is half enjoyed until
shared with others. Who, then will not
try to live up to the precept? Live not
for self alone. It is the language of duty'
guiding to the only paths of happiness ofz
earth, and preparing the soul for unallow.Qdl
bliss throughout the measureless endunpga.
of eternity. "Tis more blessed to give-thna.

A N injurious and malicious agack has been
made upon the character of the under-
signed by G. W. Walton,,by saying in the
presence of several persons that his casks of
rice have been robbed to the amount of one and
a half bushels to the cask. TJAi is a wilful
and unjustifiable falsehood, calculated to in-
jure me in the estimation of the citizens of St.
Augustine and the public generally.
The books of the wharf and warehouse show
that. no rice whatever has been received for Mr.
Walton since I have been in chargeof the same.

Wolfe's Genvalue Cognac Brandy,

Wolfe's Genuine Madeira wine,
Wolfe's Genuine Sherry 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 on, for someI
years past, to s.licit me to pursue the same
course in regard to the article of Brandy. I
should have complied with these requests from
aP qpn. t1 l.' 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 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 Brandy. 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 s a medicine, a beverage,
or a cord4jal, 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, frqm 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 and crimes, and have sent thousands
to an early grave, self-destroyers, from delirum
tremens, mania-a-potu and horrors, names un-
known, until unprincipled men began to make
maddening compounds and sell it as the pure
French Brandy.
The virtues of pure French Brandy need not
be told by me. They are known throughout
.t~ae_.M ga mediimje or aild stimulant. It
is, as the Freiioh-nation poetlcallyca'flIT Eir
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 drink to
innocent tens of thousands of our race, To
remedy a fearful evil, I have commenced im-
porting Brandy, bottling it, and selling it -as
'VWolte'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.

COCOINE, a compound of Cocoa-Nut

KALLISTON, a Cosmetic, for remov-

Preservation and Beauty of the Teeth and
BuRNETT'S COCAINE. This is the
name of a new and elegant preparation for
dressing the hair, just introduced into the
market by Messrs. Joseph Burnett & Co.
It combines all the properties which have
long been desired in an article of the kind,
and is the result of a careful research, and
reiterated experiment. It contains a very
large proportion of the famous Cocoa-nut
Oil, the use of which is so universal among
the inhabitants of the Eastern A rchip' : ,
The luxuriance and abundance of hLa..
which adorn the natives of those remote
regions, are attested by all travellers, and
are mainly to be attributed to the usa 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, and cleanest, and most disirable
preparation ever offered to the public.-Bos-
ton Trans-ript. .
A New Perfume for the Huandkerchief.
This exquisite bouquet is so highly con-
centrated that a single drop will leave its
peculiarand delightful fragrance upon the
handkerchief for many hours.
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
"IFlorimtel. 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, whiah sell
at fifty cents each, and may be had of th
principal Druggists and Perfumers.-.
Boston Transcript.
Of all the compounds we have yet seeq
prepared as a cosmetic for the skin, there
is none that has a higher reputation, or
one that is so popular with the ladies as the
far-famee ".Kallistoo," It is scientifically
prey ared, and is a perf4tume as well as toil(
wash. It imparts to the skin a peculin r
softness of texture, so desirable during heo
prevalence of harsh drying winds or a hot
son. It will, with a few applications, rc-
,move tan, freekies, synLurn oano allett,
neous eruptions. It is extensively used for
these purposes, and ladies who apply it can
exercise in the open air as freely as they
please, and experience no inconvenience
from raugh or irritated skin. This article
can he hidd of all druggists and perfumers.

are the Proprietors.-Borton Transcript.
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 irreparable.
Among the many preparations for pre-
serving the health and beauty of the Teeth
and Gums, we believe B rnett's Oriental
Toothi W as deserves the highest rank.
The position which Mr. Burnett occu-
pies, as a chemist, his untiring energy and
rare skill, are sufficient guarantee of the
excellence of each an4 all the proparationS
bearing his name,
The Oriental Tooth Wash has, we know,
received the spoction and patronage of thq
leading Dentists and Physicians in (hia
country, It is not only a powerful deter-
gent and cleanser of the teeth, but, by i.t#
vegetable astringent properties, acts direct-
ly upon the caries, t creby most effectually
arresting decay, and forming a protective
and almost impervious coating in the cavi-
ty, even where the nervo 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 OnuO of tLb .
antest remiedios in the world; ;.. ,....
pungeat, and aromatic, it imparts to the
breath a peculiarly clean and delightful
fragrance. We advise our readers to try
it.--Dental Newos.
Gentlemen who are addicted to the habit
of smoking will find Burnett's Oriental
Tooth Wash an excellent detergent. It
also imparts to the breath a ir.g.,,
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
Sept 17.

We have always considered the real Fari-
na Cologne Water as the most modest and
proper luxury for our toilet table, but the
other day we were tempted by a stray bot-
tle of Burtett's Kalliston, prepared by
Messrs. Joseph Burnett & Co. We yield
it the palm; the effect is salutary and the
perfume is exquisite; after the application
we fell as bland and and baly as a May morn-
ing. We beg to suggest to the proprietors
to make it less irresistible if they expect to
supply the demand.-Boston Guazectte.
