About the last of the week, 1 went into a drug store to. jet some medicine for my eh.Id and niyseif. There were several of the vi laec physicians in the store, and one of them seemed to take some interest in my ease and. after asking me some questions, said he had been a dyspeptic, and bad been greatly bene fitted by the u?e of "Dr. Hoofl.nd's G? rinan Bit ters." pr< pared by y u, and he insisted that I would tiy the Bi'.Nrs lie also called Hie uext day at my room, and insi.-ted so much that I would try them that I asked h:m 10 g"t me or.e bottle. He Aid it, and I commenced taking it as dirccUid, and i do say I was more benefitted liy it thuu fell the water and medicine 1 had ever taken. A'.ter reaching horn- one cf my neighbors cam *1 to ine for a prescription and medicine, (he a dyspep tic,) and 1 eav' him nearly all the Bitters I had left, which effected much good in his case.

PREMATURE MATBIMOHT. Marriage is a divine and beautiful ar rangement. It was designed by Provi dence not solely as a means of keeping up population, or as a mere social and economical convenience, but as the blend ing of two spirits into one?the mascu line representing wisdom, and the femi nine affection. When there is a true spiritual affinity between the two, then tne design is accomplished. Premature marriages are among the greatest evils of the times: and it would not be a bad idea in thr-se days of re forms, if an anti-marrying-in-a-hurry society were instituted. Now-a-days, people leap into the magic life-cirrle, with no more consideration than they would partake of a dinner?little think ing that, when once in, they are there until their end comes. There is but lit tle, sometimes no mutual analysis of dis position, and comparison of taste and af fections. The^r seem to fancy that, if there be any discrepancies, the fatal Gor dian knot, which can be seldom cut, and never united, will harmonize all. The numbers who have felt this truth ?the number still feeling it to their heart's core?are incalculable. They recognize it as the greatest mistake of their lives. The chain is not to them a silken one, but a cable of iron, that tightens around them more and more, crushing out all hope and energy, sub stituting hate for love, and eating out with its rust, the very inner life of the soul. Boys and girls now marry lo a greater extent than ever be-fore, instead of wait ing till they become full-grown men and women. Th<; young danJy, as soon as he gets out of the short jackets, and finds a little furze gathered on his upper lip? and the young miss, as soon as she emerges frcm the nursery and abbre viated frocks, thinks they are qualified to assume the mo?t solemn responsibili ties of life. And so if '-pa" and "ma'' won't consent, they post off to some Gretna Green, and there take obligations that, in ninety-nine cases out of a hun dred, they will never cease bitterly to repent. Marriage should never be the result of fancy. The ball-room and the evening party rarely develop real character. Un der the exhilarating influence of the dance, the glare of lights, and the merry qiiib and joke, the dissolute young man may appear amiable, and the slatternly sco'd loveable. Matches made at such places, or under similar circumstances, are not of the class that originate in heaven. They more generally are con ceived in the opposite place, and bring forth only iniquity. The true way to learn each other is to do it at home, in the parlor, in the kitchen, and on occa sions that ic:;t the temper. We see the result of these unions in the almost daily divorces that are taking place?in the running away of husbands ; leaving their wives and childred to starve?and in the elopement of wives. Not only this, but we witness it in broken-spirited men, made old in the prime of life, struggling on for mere food and clothing, and shel ter! and in women, cross, dirty, sluttish, and wrinkled. It would be quite impossible for us to depict faithfully, the multitude of phy sical and moral evils that result from these sinful alliances?for sinful they are. They ruia the body corrupt the morals, and stultify the mind. And the result does not stop with husband and wife. There are the children They partake of the feebleness and vices of the parents, both physical and moral, and go out into the busy world, stunted and gnarled. We would not be understood as speak ing against the institution of marriage. It is holy, beautiful and benificcnt. But let every one take his mate or none. Let ? not the brave eagle pair with the stupid owl, nor the gentle dove with the carrion crow. Like should have like. It is a glorious sight to see two old people, who have weathered the storms, aud basked in the sunshine of life together, go hand in hand, lovingingly and truthfully, down the gentle declivity of time, with no an gers, jealousies, nor hatred* garnered up against each other, and looking with hope and joy to the everlasting youth of heaven, where they two shall be one for ever. That is true marriage?for it is the marriage of spirit with spirit. Their love is woven into a woof of gold, that neither time, nor death, nor eternity can sever.?'l he Electic. Tiie Slate and the ABOLrnoxisTs.? A lady writing from Augusta, Georgia, presents some facts, and suggests con trasts not altogether pleasing. Miesays: The most interesting sight here on Sun day is to watch the black population going to church. Many of them are the most extravagantly dressed people you see in the street. The plainly dressed ones wear black silk dresses, white mus lin shawls, and straw bonnets, or have their heads turbaned in 'kerchiefs taste fully airanged. The men are habited in broad cloth, with bright buttons, (they seem to have a penchant for bright but tons,) fine hats, and gloves, cane, and usually a watch and breast pin. Smiling faces, which betray a good display of ivory, and they Iook on the whole very little as if "humanity was crushed out of them," as abolitionists are wont to say. They have here two large African churches,Sunday schools every Sabbath taught orally, although many of them can read?taught by their young masters and mistresses, when growing up. It is not unusual to see slaves reading the newspapers, and amiliar with the cur rent news of the day. Slave holders feel they have a duty to perform toward their slaves, and in most cases discharge the duty like Christian people?training them for civilizad life, and teaching them, Christianity. I A MOTHER'S OrTLUUCE A crowd of boisterous urchins were gathered around poor Norah, whose sim plicity of speech and half-crazed vaga ries afforded them ample scope for amuse ment A manly little fellow, just step ping into his teens, stood silently by, aud wc could see the warm blood almost breaking through his sun-burned cheeks, as his ear caught the cruel jests of some one who seemed to be the seuior of the party. " Hallo, Fred W., what has ncttU-d you1 Norah is nothing to you, I reckon," the boy questioned. 44 No, but I had a mother once," was the sad answer, and something in tbo tone, more perhaps than in the words, appeared to carry the appeal home to every heart. The thoughtless group silently dis persed, as if abashed at their selfishness, and Fred. W. passed up the street. Blessings on his noble, manlr heart! I wiLl venture to say that he will one day be a good man, if not a great one. For nature moulds the nobleman of such ma terials as his composition. "I had a mother once," and albeit the living eye no loager closed, and the gen tie hand mouldering in the silenoe of the grave, memory had treasured up as a precious inccnse sweet lessons taught at morn and even, beside that mother's knee ; aud the bread cast upon the wa ters hath been gathered after many days, in the noble impulse which prompted the boyish heart to interpose fur the weak and the w?ary ones thrown in his pathway. The truth of the beautiful sentiment sends ;U appeal pleadingly home to our hearts in behalf of God's lonely and d > olaie children, who wander up and down the world, vainly striving through a life time to catch a glimpse of sunshine and songs which may be overflowing our own life cup. You look upon that cold, stern man, over whose lair name crime and guilt have cast their hideous shadow. If your eye, and not God's, could penetrate into the depths of that granite nature you would imagine every spark of good and gentle thought, ot high and generous im pulse, had been long crushed out in bis rude jostlings with the world. You look, and you scarcely believe that some mother loved him once ; that far back in the guiltless days ot infancy some kind heart touched his cradle as softly as you do that of your tirst-born to-night; that some fond eye watched his out-goings with love and pride, and grew brighter at his coming ; that blessings and prayers followed him out into the world, but that the world seized him, as the great angry ocean Seizes upon its prey, and la red him on like a lake-charmed bird, to forget the nest where hi3 sunny years were rocked; but recall that mother's memory, speak as she spoke, and see if the angel within dots not shine through the callousness and d&rkness of man's nature, and then tell me if the memory of a mother is not the most precious thing the heart cm cling to, next to the worship of God. The beggar in my path?the frail child of shame ?the emigrant whose home is over the blue sea?what the little ones that clustered arou?d your hearth are to vou, so were they once to some hearts: but the world has rough paths, and they lost their way. 441 had a mother once!" And so had we, sweet boy ; ar.d though the dust and ashes of the lonely grave have long lain lightly on the bosom we worthipped, th ^ matron's cap and silver hair are ever more sacred for her fake, and even the lips that can smile at the oddities or eccen tricities of those upon whose path the mile-stones are will nigh passed, must have forgotten the heart upon which his own was cradlcd, and which, through sunshine and stoim, beat to no sweeter music thaa the voices of her loved onui at home. A Touching Custom.?A common practico in Paris, which impresses a stranger favorably, i* that of the lifting or taking oil the hat when a funeral pars es. A writer on this subject relates ths following : "Some years since, we were one of that, rushing cro -,vd ever pouring up and down Broadway. When in front of old St. Paul's, all eye3 were attracted bv tho appearance ot the crcw of the French war vessel, La Iielle Poule, which then visit ed the United States under the command of the Prince do Joinville. The c.rew were in their naval dress uniform, bright end beautiful, and were saurlerin'c alon? seeing the sights. b * ''All at once tb^y stopped, formed a line, faced inwird, and uncovered. Ilow exquisite and touching was the sceno wlien we discovered in that thoughtless, busy, hurrying crowd, a man of foreign birth, evidently poor and friendless, un der whose arm was carried a tiny coffin, and by his side the stricken mother. They were in search of a burial for their babe, and were jostled and unheedsd m that gay torrent of humanity, until they met these hardy tempe?t-tossed mariners, who on the instant, with bared heads, stood in silent respect, while the sacred ashes of the unknown infant were pass ing. Such are French manners." Backbiting. ?The not uncommon cus tom of pelting a friend after he has left the company, seems to have been derived from the practice of the ancient tribes, who erected a monument to a departed hero, by throwing stones upon him. Bob, did you settle that business with Simpkins, yet ?" 44 Yes?he kicked me off the stoop last week, and since that he has stopped bothering ni?." Bjb's ideas of 44 bo:hering are ceriamly original. "At length," said an unfortunate man, who had been ruined by vexatioug lawsuits, "at length I have fouad happi ness, for I am reduced to necessity, and that is the only thing 1 know of which has no law."
