SPECIAL NOTICES. tST To Sr. H. Heinimann, corner Jackson and Montgomery streets, San Francisco.—Dear Sir: It is with pleasure that we notice the unbounded success which has attended you in your practice since your residence in this State, now over seven years. The good you hnve done and the skill you have exercised in the cures that have come under our observation, make It our duty to let it be known to the world, and more particularly to those now suffering with disease. Most of us were well acquainted with you whilst you resided at Mormon Island, and witnessed there some remarkable cures which you effected on patients whose cases were pronounced hopeless by eminent physicians. We have also seen what you have done for some of our friends now residing at Coloma and Placet ville, who, after much persuasion and inducements on our part, consented to go and see you, when they had almost despaired of their lives. They did so, and returned, and are now living hale and hearty men. And, ren...

THE WHEREWITHAL. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 17 August 1856

THE WHEREWITHAL. BY CHARLES SWAM. A man may have wisdom and worth, And humor and wit at his call. But what do these matter on earth, If he has not the wherewithal? His home may be circled with friends If he only keeps up the ball; But friendship soon changes and ends If he has not the wherewithal. Then seek for the wherewithalMake sure of the wherewithal, For pleasure, like friendship, soon ends, If you have not the wherewithal. The purse is the dial whose face .... Shows best where the sunlight doth ran, He is always first in the race, Who is first with the wherewithal l Some say that the high can be mum _ Some hint that the great can be small, But triOes like these are not seen. If blessed with the wherewithal. Then seek for the wherewithalMake sure of the wherewithal, For pleasure, like friendship soon ends, If short of the wherewithal. Love smiles on the Sh °'" A nicture within to enthrall, When aours iv the heart of the rose, •Serfs love in the wfcerewtttuOYes men may have wisd...

fiff fast of |ts Hare. BY J. F. SMITH, AurnoR or "res soldier or roRTOEE," "munis am," etc. CHAPTER XXll.—Continued. When Dr. Marsh, who had been sent for from Newark, quitted tbe sick chamber of the landlady of the Rising Sun, he announced to the bewildered husband and affectionate niece, that his patient had not many hours to live. During the years of tyranny he had so patiently endured, the possibility of Mrs. Bunce's dying had never entered the imagination of the ben-pecked Michael. He considered her far above any such weakness, and felt so overwhelmed by the suddenness of the intelligence, that he stood gazing on the physician in a state of mental stupefaction, till the latter began to suspect his senses were shattered by the shock. Jane, or rather Miss Jane, as she insisted on being Called, on the contrary, had all her wits about her; and instantly quitted the room to despatch a messenger to hasten the arrival of lawyer Kllsgood. The husband thought only of his dying wife—the ...

One day a lady riding over the grounds of v friend to whom she was on a visit, found the gate closed which was the outlet from the fields to the high road : a peasant hoy stepped forward, and bowing, opened the gate that she might pass. •• What is your name asked the lady. •• Tunimas," said the boy, with another bow. " Ah !" replied the lady, giving him a shilling, •• I see you are not a Huntingdonshire boy—you arc so civil ;" to which the urchin iptickly rejoined, •• Thou'rt a liar, 1 be."

Instinct of Plants. In his treatise on the vine. 1 loan'gives a striking exemplification of the instinct nf plants. A boat was placed in the strong, hut dry clay of a vine border. The vine sent out a leading or ta|Woot, directly through the clay to the Imne. In its |iussago through the clay, tin- main mot threw out no libers: but when it reaclnil the bone, it entirely covered it by degree, with the nu st delicate and minute fibers, like laco, tsch one racking a pore in the bone. On this luscious morsel of a marrow bone would the vine continue to food as long as any nutriment remained to lie extracted.

FOE WASHING CLOTHES, Ac, WITHOUT LABOR, rULLARD'S CELEBRATED PATENT WASHING FLUID. WARUANTED NOT TO INJURE THE CLOTHES. THIS UNRIVALED MIXTURE HAS ONLY TO BE TESTED to prove its excellent qualities. All the manufacturer would claim for it is a fair trial, (according- to the directions given on each bottle,) feeling confident that entire satisfaction will be given. We are well aware that many articles have been offered to the public, professing to be all that it is claimed for this, which, upon trial, have proved injurious to the clothes. From this cause public confidence has been in a measure destroyed. We, however, offer an entirely different article, which will be found to nave nearly all the labor of washing, as the clothes really require no rubbing. Tbe manufacturer will guarantee that tbe Fluid will in no manner injure the clothes. TO MARINERS—This Washing Fluid is particularly recommended, as it will soften salt water in such a manner that a good lather can be obtained from an...

THE INGRATITUDE OF MAN TO HIS FELLOW MAN ia so often met with in life th.it testimonials, prompted by the finer feelings of the heart, are oases in the lile of those who sacrifice their best days in philanthropic devotion to the allc viation of the ills of frail mortality. Empiricism floods th columns of our press with fraudulent and fictitious letters singing paeans to the worth of their own egotistical charlatanism. Below we append a letter from a worthy man, who, a brief period since, seemed destined to " shuffle off this mortal coil;" who looked forward to his dissolution with that pleasure which only these weighed down by the heavy hand of disease can. Contrary to hope, the ability of a skillful physician has restorej htm to his former health. Relieved from his terrible situation, and impelled by gratitude, he makes known his case and remedial agent, and his statement is authenticated by a Notary Public.
