The Oak-Shaded Bower.
The poetess smiled in the oak-shaded bower,
And grasped the glad hand I extended ;
She bade me a welcome, and sweet was the hour,
With song, mirth and poetry, blended.
ITer bright, happy check wore a dimple that vied
With the red rose bereft of its pistils ;
And the sons; kissed the sweetness its silence would hide
From her lips, where true innocence nestles.
The deep, thoughtful eye, gazing pensively fair,
Was soft as the " Star of the morning "
That moved the full bosom making vocal the air,
And discord to harmony turning.
Yes, long will fond memory turn to the hour,
When fu st I beheld the sweet maiden.
And with thoughts of the poetess' home in the bower
One fond heart with pleasure is laden.

Be a Woman.
Oft I've heard a gentle mother.
As the twilight hours bean,
rieading with a son, on duty,
Urging him to be a man.
But unto her blue-eyed daughter,
Though with love's words quite as ready,
Points she out the other duty
' Strive my dear to be a lady."
What's a lady ? Is it something
Made of hoops, and silks, and airs,
Used to decorate the parlor,
Like the fancy rings and chairs?
Is it one that wattes uii novels
Every feeling that is human?
If 'tis this to be a lady,
'Tis not this to be a woman.
Mother, then, unto your daughter
Speak of somethiug higher far, ,
Than to be mere fashion's lady
" Woman " is the brightest star.
If ye, in your strong affection,
Urge your son to be a true man,
Urge your daughter no less strongly
To arise and be a woman.
Yes, a woman brightest model
Of that high and periect beauty,
Where the mind, aud soul, and body
Blend to work out life's great duty.
Be a woman naught is higher
On the gilded list of fame 5
On the catalogue of virtue
There's no brighter, holier name.
Be a woman on to duty,
Raise the world from all that's low,
Place high in the social heaven
Virtue's fair aud radiant bow !
Lend thy iulluence to each effort
That shall raise our nature human ;
Be not fashion's gilded lady,
Be a brave, whole-souled, true woman !
A Defender of Judas Iscariot. The chiv
alrous companionship of tarnished reputation
is a curious feature in recent historical English
literature. We quote from the London corres
pondence of the Natioual Intelliren,er :
Mr. Merivale manifests a rather strange par
tiality for the Roman emperors. Mr. Fronde's
devotion to Henry VIII and his agent, Thomas
Lord Cromwell, is matter of notoriety. Mr.
Carlyslc has commenced brightening up the
tarnished fame of Frederick the Great and Vis:
predecessor. IJut Mr. Qtiiney has taken up the !
most unpromising client of all Disinterring an !
old theory, he has made, himself the apologist
of Judas Iscariot. We shall probably very
shortly have a dissertation to prove that Cata
line was a good citizen and pure patriot, and
that Nero was impelled by a sense of duty to
kill his mother and light up Home with burn
We remember that Lucretia Borgia had a
champion in the amiable Mr. Iloscoe. We do
not charge a love of paradox or a desire to con
nect his name with au ingenious new reading
upon any of the illustrious authors whose names
we have mentioned, but we are afraid that their
example will tend towards some such abuse.
Hie list of unsettled historical and biograp
cal questions will he very much increased
this generous desire to do justice : for proba
there is some small basis of truth at the bott
of the wildest of the speculations to which
A Picture in the Room. Mr. LTazlitt has
said, somewhere, of the portrait of a beautiful
female, with a noble countenance, that it seems
as if unhandsome actions would be impossible
in its presence. Most men of any refinement
of soul must have felt the truth and force of
this sentiment. And therefore we have often
thought that the picture of a beloved mother,
or an endeared sister, or a devoted wife, hung
up in the room where we spend our leisure hours,

New Kind of Cider. At the late meeting
of the United States Agricultural Society, held
at Washington, D. C., Mr. A. Jenks, a Vir-
very Simple. lie treats the juice to bring the
leculent matters to the top, whence he removes
them by skimming. lie then barrels or bot
tles the liquor, and lets it stand. In about
eight days it has become cider, and when fer
mentation has advanced to the right stage, he
bottles it, and preserves it as champagne.
Mr. Dennis, of Key West, says that the
great Salt Lake of Utah seems the strongest
arid purest brine fountain known Capt. Stans
bury records that he saw millions of bushels of
salt crystalized on its western borders, and that
he made use of the unstrengthened water of
the lake successfully to cure beef.

Well to Do. The New Orleans Delta says
there is a gentleman in that city, a merchant
and a planter, and we regret to add, a bache

ders, by absorption aud constitutional treatment, as
practised at the fetuyvesant Medical Institute, New
The unprecedented success which has attended this
method of treating diseases of the Lungs and Throat
has induced us to depart from our usual course,
and ourselves of the columns of the press, in order to
bring it to the knowledge of such as may be laboring
under or predisposed to such affections. The dawn
of a brighter day has at length arrived for the Con
sumptive; the doctrine of the incurability of consump
tion having at length passed away. We have indubi
table proofs in our possession that Consumption in all
its stages can be cured! in the first, by tubercular ab
sorption; in the second, by the trcusformations of the
tubercule into chalky and calcareous concretions, in
the third by cicatrices, or scars. Those wedded to
j the opinions of the past may assert, that even now,

To all, this great truth must be apparent, viz: that the
medicines inhaled in the form of vapor or Powder di
rectly into the Lungs, must be much more effective
than that taken into the Stomach, where the disease
does not exist. The advantage of Inhalation in Con
sumption and Throat diseases is, that medicine in the
form of Vapor is applied directly to the Lungs, where
the disese exists; the stomach is thus left free to aid
in restoring health, by administering to it a healthy,
lifegiving food. There is no case so hopeless that In
aaittoii will not reach! The means, too, are brought
with'a the reach of all. the manner of administering
the Vapors being so simple that the invalid is never
required to leave home, where the hand of friendship
and affection tends so much to aid the physician's
The Inhalation method is soothing, safe and ready
nd consists in the administration of tiedicine in such a
manner, that they are conveyed into the Lungs iD
the form of vapor and produce their action at the seat
of the disease. Its practical success is destined to re
volutionize the opinions 01 the medical world and
establish the entire curability of Consumption.
I earnestly appeal to the common sense of all afflic
ted with Lung diseases, to embrace at once the advan
tage of Inhalation, and no longer apply medicine
to the unoffending stomach. I claim for InhalatioD
a place amongst the priceless gilts that nature and
art hath given us. that "ourday may be long in the
land," and as the only ark of safety for the consump
tive; a method not only rational, but simple and effi
cacious. Such of the profession that have adopted
Inhalation have found it efficacious in the highest de
gree. arresting the progress of the disease and work
ing wonders in many desperate cases, in verdity, a
signal triumph of our art over this fell destroyer of

AJSD MAGAZINE OF USEFUL
INFORM A TION.
The undersigned proposes to publish in the
City of Raleigh, a semi-annual Journal, of the
above title, devoted exclusively to the dissemi
nation of statisticall information.
The want of such a Journal is felt bv every
intelligent citizen, -who desires to become at all
acquainted with the resources of the State, our
y.x.acnt condition, luture prospects, &c, and by
none so much as by our Legislators.
That we have no regular system of statistics,
cannot be attributed to any want of material.
There are large amounts of valuable and inter
esting information scattered thiough our Legis
lative and Executive Documents and Records,
which, in their present situation, for all practi
cal purposes, might as well be in the Chinese
language. Besides what our Legislative
archives contain, our newspapers often publish
valuable statistical information, which is either
lost, or if preserved by a very few, is so incon
venient to find when wanted, that the facts are
soon forgotten. Ihe same may be said of the
Reports and Statements from time to time
made by our incorporated companies, and others
engaged in jManuiactures, Klines, Commerce,
&c. To collect these various items of informa
tion, and give them to the public in a shape
easy of reference and for perpetual preservation,
as well as to gather from all available resour-
ces, everytning oearing aireciiy or indirectly
on our wealth, prosperity and industry, is the
design of the Journal now offered for public
So far as the plan for conducting the same
has been matured, the pages of the STATIST
will be devoted to the arrangement of such
tables relating to our Population, Agriculture,
Commerce, Education, Public Improvements,
Manufactures, Fisheries, Mines, and Social Sta
tistics generally, as will present their condition
and our progress in each.
It is also designed to contain the Report
(condenser) of the Public Treasurer, Com
missioners of the Sinking Fund, Superintendent
of Common Schools, and all other State Offi
cers and Boards; as also, Statements and Re
ports of the condition and progress of the vari
ous Railroad and Navigation Companies.
The Statist will be put to press as soon as a
sufficient number of responsible names are - ch
ained to pay the expenses of publico ton. Ihe
numbers will contain each, not less than .150
pages closely printed matter, making a book of
300 pages, or more, to which will be added a
full and complete index.
Teems:-TIIttEE DOLLARS vrn axxitm
ONE DOLLAR AND FITTY CENTS, for six
MONTHS; payable when the first number is ready
for publication, which fact will be duly announced
in the public Newspapers.
GF'Those persons intending to patronize the
Journal, will send their nanu s to the undersigned
without delay, as it is desirable to issue the first
number as soon as possible.
