THIS preparation, although less than two veers before tne public; owing to Its wonderful ef fect* "upon the human hair and scalp, .has already obtained a celebrity and sale pWfcctly wn paralleled. It has without the ordinary appliance used for snch purposes, v/on Its way, and been heartily welcomed to most of the cltie.4 and towns in the United States, the Canadas, and the West India Islands. Nor is this result surprising when it is remembered that its popularity Is based upon Its merits, solely as established by actual tests. That this preparation will actually Restore gray Hair to its Natural Color, produce a luxuriant growth upon the heads of the bald, prevent the hair from falling off. and when used as a tonic ar ticle, produce a continual flow of the natural fluid and thus render the hair soft, glossy and wavy, destroy diseases of the scalp, and expel dandruff, the certificates of distinguished gentlemen ana ladies in every part of the country who have tried it, and therefore speak what they know, most ful ly attest. That by a proper use of this Restorative tne hair can be made to attain and retain its natu ral color to almost any age alotted to humanity, by removing the cause of disease from the scalp? no matter how long standing?the concurrent tes timonials of the press and the certificates of nu merous respectable indivldi^j qf both sexes, to the use of tnis curative, a* WC as of the recom mendations of editors and certificates before alia ded to, can be had of all ageuts.

SIDNEY BREESB, Ex-Senator United States. Paov. Wood Dear Sir?My hair commenced failing off some three or four years since, and con tinued to do so until I became quite bald.

A TALK OF THE CAROLINA!*. In a small farm-house, toward the close of the year 1700. sat an okl men. his wife, and an only sou. Th? face of the father appcarei troubled; at times he locked thoughtfully to the floor, and then he would gaze long and wistfully at his son, a fine, manly youth of twenty. At length he said : *? David, this is disastrous news from Cam den. God knows what will become of the country now ! Congress needs every arm that is capable; ah. me' I wish this old wound I got in the French war bad not lamed me; but tor it 1 should now be shouldeiing my musket ar.d marching to defend my country. ' Both son and wife l?>oked up at these words. The old lady ceased knitting and looked in uuiringly at her boy. and it was evident, from the expression of her face, that patriotism and motherly affection were at variance in her bosom The son, however, after encountering his father's eye for a moment, turned confus edly away. The old man's brow darkened, and he exclaimed warmly: " David, why do you linger about the village when your country needs your services so much ? Why. my son, I am ashamed of you Twice boforo this haw X spoken to you on this subject, but you appear to have no spirit. What! will you see us trampled upon by the brutal mercenaries of Britain, and still lie here supinely ? For shame, David, for shame! I will not call you my son. Long since you ought to have been in the army." " Joshua, Joshua ' interposed the old mo ther, "David is but a youth; then do not speak so harshly to him. "lie cannot yet feel what you feel, who have fought so often against your country's enemy?he is but a boy. " '?A boy, indeed, Deborah! Such boys as David have already gained imperishable lau rels since the war commenced. I could name a host of them' Why, were it not for the boys of this land where would be our army, which. I dare say, is ono quarter composed of boys of his age ! The old m.iu wa3 excited, and it was the first unkind word he bad ever used to his boy. David rose and left the house. He walked some distance, aj?parently in deep thought. " What will uot woman do!'" he at last mut tared, '-Here I have been lingering about the village when X should have been tiff long ago. And for what' why, to meet a pretty girl, and to listen to her musical voice; but now I will be myself again' What did he call me was it uot a roirard? Njw. by Heaven, I will teach him that he has a son who possesses the spirit of his father Away, then, with lore, for X feel that I am called upon to act; no longer dream ! Ere another fortnight, my father shall hear of me. or else T lose my life in striving for it." And with this resolution he turned about and let raced his steps. When he reached home he sought the sta ble. saddled his horse, and mounting him, struck into a gallop, which continued for sev eral miles. At length he stopr>rd ami looked up at the windows of a lartn-houfe, half hid between clustering trees. This was the resi dence of Mary Bunker, the mibtress of hi* heart; '.he light* showed that the family had not retired, and he resolved to pay her a visit before his departure Hhe was alone when he entered, and a few words made her acquainted with his determi nation. .When she bur.-t into tt:ars. Nay, Mary,*' he added, you muft not ua ni* n me. At first I resolved to leave you without a farewell, for 1 knew how much you dreaded my taking an active part in the struggle. Bat I could cot be so c;uel as to desert you without a word." 44 X will comp ?se nyself," said th" fair gitl, with an effort to s-mije. " I know I have been wrong to persuade you to sUiy ; but you can not imagine the anxieties I suffer on account of my brothers, and I could not bear you to en counter their danger But since thi> dread ful defeat at Camden, X feel that every man is wanted for our eou nry. Go. then, dearest, and may God be with you My prayers shall attend you night and day." Daviu pressed the weeping girl to his bosom, snatched a hasty kiss at tnc sound of approach ing footsteps, wrung her hand and wat. g^ne. The next day he left the neig'ibe'rho >d of hi? father's house armed with a musket and mounted on a sturdy horse. His destination was the American camp, then far northward ; but as the intervening country wa* filled with the enemy, he knew there would be consider able address required to effect his purpose Before bis departure he saw n few o|* his old playmates who promised to follow a- sov?n as possible. Night found him near a lonely farm house, to which lie proceeded boldly, in pursuit of lodging. At first the occupant received him coldly, but a chance expression convincing David that his host was a tory, he affccted the seme political creed, and was immediately warmly welcomed. The royalist produced his cider after supper, and insisted that David should join hjia m bis j?otations; this the young man did. taking care not to indulge too freely, while the farmer, overjoyed to find what he supposed to bo a new recruit for hi* party, drank without stint, and became moie and more communicative. To his horror, Da vid i'?n learned that a party of loyalists, led by Major \V ilson. celebrated for his toryism and ruthlessness, were to start early on the ensuing day on an expedition to seize and hang the two Bunkers, who had m tdo them selves particularly obnoxious to the royalist leaders. David knew enough of this partizan warfare to be assured that no mercy would be f?h'>wu his friends He also knew'enou^h of the character of the M :jor. that to suspect that aoinc strong personal motive had led to the planning rf so distant an expedition when there were others nearer home. He accord ingly set himself to discover from his half ine briated companion the truth. tt was he long before success crowned hi. adioit cross examination. " Why you see." said the h<?t, " 1 believe there's a little revenge fcr the slight received from these fellow's sister, mixed up with the Major's desire to catch the Bunker- Tit. girl is very pretty they fay. and the Major when she was down here on a visit last year?before the war?wanted to marry her, but she would have nothing to da with him. Ever since, he bas vowed to inako her rue the day. You may depend upon it, he will have her on his own terms now. Thank Heaven! there's no law to j,re vent an honest royalist from doing as he pleases to these rascally rebels. Bai yonder is the Major now." suddenly said the host, starting up. '?! will introduce you a; mice?a merry fellow you'll find him. Lord love you. he's as brave as a lion." David, though horrified at the diabolical plot he had heard, saw the necessity of dis sembling iu order to bear more of the tory't plans, and find means, if possible to circum vent them. Ho arose, therefore, and shook the Major's hand warmly ; pledged him im mediately in a bumper, and so contrived to make the loyalist believe that he was amk-u to join a troop and take nart against the reb els. This induced the Msgor to be unusually sivil, for he wished to secure so athletic a re jruit himself. It was not long before a bar gain was concluded between the two. David refused, however to sign the agreement that night. He pretended that eevpral others ot his friends were dissatisfied, and desirous of joining the loyalisLs ; and his object, he said, was to secure a commission for himself by in lawing them to join. This tempting bait took; :he Major promised a command in his troop in sase of success, and David signified his inten sion of setting fortn after he had taken a few lours rest, in order to lose no time gathering .ogother his recruits. The dread of disoovery had been constantly >elore our hero during the arrangement of hi - negotiation. for his per*ou vm well known to many of U>? Major'stroop* , and if u* of them bad coiae up. bis fei^td name would not pro toct him from detention. lie wished to get off that night as he proposed ; bat to this neither hi* host nor the M^jor would hear, and he was forced to remain tiU morning What was hi. angnish to hear that the Major had been gone jom? hour*, and was already on hit way to Bunkers with his troops. Dissembling his anxiety, David partook of a hasty breakfast, and mounting hie horse r<>de slowly away. But when out of tight of the house he rtnek into a Sen e gallop, which oontinaed till ha cume in bight of a e rose-road where was a tav em. llerc lie stopped, and learning that the r- yalist# had taken the high road, he tamed into a more narrow and circuitous by-road. " It id my oulv chance to avoid them." he said, again dashing into a gallop *' 1 pray God I mav reach the settlement in time to collect a few of our ladP. and marrh to the Buuker*. There is nu other hope now left!" >iight bad fallen in, as they had expected, before the tories were able to reach the vicini ty of the bcure they were in search of. At length, however, after a silent march through the wood*, it broke upon their view. A light was burning in one of the window*, and when they arrived close to the premise*, the lively notes of a violin reached their ear*, proving that the brothers were not aware of their presence, but were enjoying themselves in imagined security '?Now, men." whimpered the lender of the tones, 4' when I give the word, fire a volley at the house by way of introduction; we will then surround the house and enter it." At that instant the deep bay of a dog rang on their ears, and a large mastiff sprang from under the house and rushod at the Major. ? Fire!" he cried. Twsntv guns broke unon the still ness of the nipht?the dog fell dead?every pane of glass i-i the window* were shivered, and the torief yelled like savages. In an instant, the lights in the bon.se were extinguished, the violin as Quickly ceiled, and a noise was heard at the aoor. The torics immediately made a rush at it. But it was already barred, and being m ade of stout oak plank, resisted all their ef forts. A ritie cracked from one of the win dow?. and a tory fell. de?pcrateiy wounded. Another report suoceoded, and another tory fell Maior Wilsm was now fully aware that both Bunkers were at h<>me, aud wide awake. A ?hed turned the rain from the front of the house, and beneath this the tories. shielded from the fire of the Bankers, went to work at the door. Suspecting resistance, perhapsfp>m his knowledge of their character?one of his men brought an axe. with which be com menced hewing at the door. and soon cut it in ieces. litre a desperate battle ensued. The rothers were powerful and courageous a* they were strong: and now with clubb<* I rifles they disputed the whole tory force. The door beta;* small, they stood their ground for bait' an hour, felling, during that time, some of th<<*e who had tne temerity to enter first, but finally numbers overcome them, and tbey were dung upon the floor and bound. The tories. uifiamcd to madness at the resistance that had been made, and at their own loa?os, now seised the mother and sifter and male preparations to hang the two brothers belore their eyes. The ropes were already tied around the necks jt t leir victims, when the Major addressed bis men : " Now. friends, as toon as these villain* are dead, we will ?et fire to the house?tne old wo D tn there, s ud he with a brutal laugh, "may he left inside, but the young one I reserve for myself.'" ??Hist!" cried one of the men in a loud r ice.
