DR. CTJRTISS HYGEANA, FOR niK t'l'RK OF ASTHMA CONSUMPTION, AND ALL DISEASES OF THE THROAT AND LUNGS. A WONDERFUL DISCOVERY HAS RECENTLY BEEN made hy Dr. Curtis, of New York, in the treatment of Consumption, A'thum, am! all diseases of the Lungs. We refer to DR. CURTIS S HYGEANA, or Inhaling Hygean Vapor and Cherry Syrup. With this new method, Dr. Curtis has restored many afflicted ones to health, as an evidence of which he has innumerable certificates. Speaking of the treatment, a physician remarks : " It is evident that ii.haling— constantly breathing an agreeable, healing vapor—the medicinal properties must come in direct contact with the whole aerial cavity of the Lungs, and thu* escape the many and varied changes produced upon them when introduced into the stonnch, and subjected to the process of digestion." The Hygeana is for sale at all the druggtMs' throughout the country. The Inhnler is worn on the breast, under the linen, without the least inconvenience—the heat of th« bod...

MY MOTHER'S GRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

MY MOTHER'S GRAVE. ' / BT I. E. J. Beneath this mound her hallowed ashes lie. In the dark grave her weary form reposes. And all of her which death could cause to die, In its embraces cold the tomb encloses. Above that tomb I stand, and, longing, cry— Cry to her as In dayi of old, still longing Amid the silence for some sweet reply From her dear voice, while holy mem'ries thronging, Around my spirit whisper prophecies That I shall not for aye be disappointed; By holy yearnings—longings such as these Shall my dull ears and sightless eyes, anointed, Be well prepared lo hear her angel voice; To see her robed in beauty like the morning— To walk with her the endless range of Joys Which ever on the earth-freed soul is dawning. But oh ! my Mother, I would hear thee now I Speak to me now from oat the heavens above me— Speak, as when round me thou thine arms did throw, And thy fond kisses said, " I love thee."

THE OLD MAN'S DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

THE OLD MAN'S DREAM. BT JKANKta. The old man sits in his oaken chair, By the ingle side to-day, With his wrinkled hrow and his frame so weak, And his palsied limbs and his sunken cheek. And his locks so thin and gray. And he gases long at the ruddy blase. As it curls and flickers and glows. And he seems to see in iv changeful light. The forms that the years in their rapid flight Have borne to the death repose. Ihere eometh the form of a maiden fair, ■) ith laughing, mischievous eyes ; He hath never beheld such another pair. And the love-light soft that he sreth there Seems borrowed from out the skies. And she wreatheth a smile with ber ruby lips. Such as ne'er another hath done, And she enmeth again as she did of yore, And bendeth low o'er his Forehead hoar, As she did in the days long.gone. And she twi-ieth bar arms, with a laving embrace Round his neck, as she presseth a kiss with her glowing lips on his aged brow. And the shrivelled old man Is young again now. Living over rich se...

The Ghost. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

The Ghost. A CHRISTMAS story. [rovTiMKn.] It was difficult to reach through memory to the crazy chaos of his mind on that night, and recall the route he took while haunt el by this feeling ; but he afterwards remembered that, without any other purpose than to baffle his iinaginary pureuer.be traversed at a rapid pace a large (SOrtioa of the moonlit city always (he knew not why) avoiding the more populous thoroughfares, and eh'oosing unfrequented and tortuous byways, but never ridding himself of that horrible confusion 0 f mind, in which the faces of his dead friend aud the pale woman were strongly blended, nor of the fancy that he was follrrwcd. Once, as he passed the hospital where Feval died, a faint hint seemed to flash and vanish frota the clouds of his lunacy, and almost identify the dogging iroblin with the figure of his dream ; bat the conception instantly mixed with a disconnected remembrance that this was Christmas eve, and then slipped from him, and was lost.

Spiritualism. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

Spiritualism. News from the Spirit World. Here is a fresh number of the •• Sacred Circle," the Magazine which is the organ of Spiritualism, starlit! by Judge Kdmnnds and now edited by the Misses Hoyt. Whatever religion there may lie in it. there is certainly some poetry—like the author's quill, which, ir too brittle for a pen, will at least make a tooth-pick. In one of the articles we find a clue to departed spirits. The writer snvs. that, "in ascending heavenward, each spirit built for himself an ethereal stairs, and it still rests on earth —its topmost round in the empyrean and forming the secret entranir from earth to'tho spirit's home." " Wonldst thou then hold converse with the great, the good of the past, thou must find their clue of silver thread" (connected with this ladder) "or thou wilt ever grope in vain." Hut the writer seems to intimate that the bottom of this ladder is Indicated by a (lower:— " Fj»ch flower of thy garden hath its spirit, so that the beautiful mythology...

The Work of the Spirits. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

The Work of the Spirits. Not twenty miles ft-oro this city, in a quiet little village, resides a gentleman of mature years, possessed of good intellectual powers, aided by more than an ordinary share of scholastic attainments and literary culture. He is a firm believer in the doctrines of spiritual communication with mortals, as contended for by a class called spiritualists—his faith being justified, as he thinks, by the demonstrations of which he has been a witness. Not loug since, a cherished daughter, just verging upon womanhood, was suddenly removed by death, while engaged in completing her studies at an F,astern Institution, throwing a gloom over the family circle of which the deceased was a cherished centre. Iv the same family was a sister of some twelve years of age, who had paid no attention to the languages, but who was suddenly impressed with an unwonted power, und taking a pen, wrote out with great rapidity and ease communications in Latin and French," without having auy ...

Rapping no Novelty. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

Rapping no Novelty. Mr. iiaxler, in his liistoneal discourse ol Apparitions, writes thus : " There is now in Loudon, an understanding, sober, pious van, oft one of my hearers, who has an elder brother, a gentleman of considerable rank, who having formerly seemed pious, of late years doea often fall into the sin of drunkenness ; lie often lodges long together here in bis brother's house,and wliensoever he. is drunk and has slept himself sober, something krocks at his bed's head, as if one knocked on a wainscot. When they remove his bed it follows him. Besides other loud noises on other parts where he is. that all the house htiars—they have often watched him, ami kept his hands test he should do it himself. His brother has often told it me. and brought his wife, a discreet woman, to nttcst it, who avers, moreover, that as she watched him, she has seen his shoes under the bed taken up. and nothing visible to touch them. They brought the man himself to me, and when we asked him how he d...

Fancy Biography of Dr Kane, THE ARCTIC EXPLORER. " The keen, clear air- the splendid sight— We waken to a world of ice; Where all things are enshrined m light As by some genie's quaint device." It was on such a morning as this that Dr. Kane, the noted Arctic explorer, was born in the small hamlet of Ices Ferry. Monongalia Co.. Va. His father originated iv tireenlnml.

When ushered into lhe world the future ice-king was unable to irot his breath on account of the close atmosphere, and vitality was only obtained through the aid of Mrs. Float, the nurse, and the celebrated I>r. .Rinnanv, who took him late the back yard and rolled him in a large snow bank.

The Effects of the Maine Law. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

The Effects of the Maine Law. The agitators of the Maine law experiment do not seem t., Imj anxious to have the facts iv regard to its working put before the public. They have got into office on the ruse, and their object is'therefore accomplished. The following statistics from the Providence Pont, illustrate the effect of this grand act for the promotion or temperance in a very forcible manner. That paper says : " Without looking at the watch-house, which would tell a frightful story, let us examine the records of the county jail. In 1849, there were fortyfour commitments for drunkenness. In 1850, there were fifty-five. In 1851, there were fifty-four. In 1852, the first year of the Maine Law, there were ninety-one. In 1M53. the second year, there were two hundred and twenty-cigbt. In" 1854, the third year, there w ere five hundred and sixty-eight. In 1865, there were one thousand and forty-seven, or more than nineteen times as many as there were four years ago!

Brandy from Coal. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

Brandy from Coal. Brandy distilled from coal is one of the proposed applications of chemical science to support the wants of mau, which is just vow creating some sensation. Hitherto brandy bas been made indifferently from potatoes, wine, beet-root, and other vegetable sources ; but from coal, villainous black mineral, mtrabtU dtrln.' The experiments of Berthelot, which demonstrated the possibility of producing alcohol from common coal, have so seized upon the imagination of some French Yankees, that it is seriously proposed to distil alcohol first from coal, and after dilution to give it the color and taste ol the best win cognnr. I have uo doubt the thing will be tried, for brandies have risen enormously. Possibly it may succeed, for Frenchmen arc not only ingenious, patient and persevering, but very enterprising. For the information, probably amusement, of yonr readers, I may state that the modus operandi is as follows : Coal gas is first distilled in the ordinary way, and conduct...

The Sex Feminine. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 6 April 1856

The Sex Feminine. A pleasant, cheerful, lively, generous, charitable minded woman is never old. Her heart is as young at sixty or seventy as it was at eighteen or twenty ; and they who are'old at sixty or seventy are not made old by time. They are made old by the ravages of passion and feelings of an unsocial, an ungenerous nature, which have cankered their minds, wrinkled their spirits, and withered their sonls. They are made old by envy, by jealousy, by hatred, by suspicions, by uncharitable feelings, by" slandering, scandalising, ill-bred habits; which," if they avoid, they preserve their youth to the very last, so that the child shall die, as the Scriptures say, a hushed years old. There are many old women who pride themselves on being eighteen or twenty. Pride is an old passion, and vanity is as gray as the mountains. They are old women" that have much of either. They are dry, h«irtless, dull, cold, indifferent. They want the weJl-epring of youthful affection, which is always c...

EDITION FOR THE CITY. Cruelty to Children. A man owning a tine colt, foal of a thoroughbred marc, would consider its evincing early signs of power and speed simply a reason why it should be more carefully cherished and tended ; certainly not a suggestion of premature and severe trial, simply to display its precocity. O! that the common sense which rears and trains colts had some ]>nrt in the rearing and education of children.
