Abra.noiso tub Dimmbr Table ?The last duty of a mistress, before sitting down to dinner or before the arrival of her guests, ia to see that the table Is properly laid out and dressed ; good servant* kw>? How'to do this very well: but it is Ihe duty of the mistr*?s of the blouse to ?ee It done. In order that there mar be no occasion of ambarraaanipnt on assembling to bo seated. The form of the dining table is a matter of taste; some like the lonz table with round corners, others the oval, and others the ocagon?the latter being ad mirably adapted on the score of comfort and ele gance. The wood should be of oak or mahoga ny. as may best harmonize with the style of the room; if oak. all the furniture of the room should be of the same wood and the elaas and dessert service all old-fashioned. Mahogany should hove modern plate, glass, and china to corres pond. No dinner tanle should be French pol ished ; a rubbing every day, after dinner, with linseed oil and soft cloths, is sufficient to secure the brightest polish. To lav the table, according to modern fashtrm. four cloths are used?fl'st. an oilcloth, to prevent the table beirn? stained, then a woollen cloth, over which place the white dam ask cloth. It is the fashion for this to remain, so that a smaller cloth Is placed over the permanent tablecloth, and removed for the dessert. We are told of a remarkable case of perse verance on the part of adry goodsdrummer. See ing the nameof a western trader registered at one of the hotels, who he knew would be a desirable customer; and anxicus to secure him first, our drummer sat down in theofflce of th? hotel to watch the key of the western man's bedroom till he ahould come in to claim it. But something kept the stranger out very late and the drummer fell asleep. When he woke he found his costomer Lad escaped him by coming in and going to bed The drummer gave it up for that night, but early on the next morning he repaired to the door of the gentleman's bed-room, and seeing his hoots, which had been nicely blacked, standing there, he, with a lead pencil, marked them across again and again, until they could not be mistaken, and once more took up his position in the etflce, but this time near the stairs, where he e.ould examine the boots of all who came down. Finally he dis covered the ones with the well known marks up on them, when he cordially addressed the wearer by his name, as if he had known him for years, and probably sold him a large bill of goods !?

Entered according to Act af Congress, A. D. 1837. In again presenting to the notice of Mie public the above remedy, we feel that little apology is needed. Vast numbers inall seotionsof the Union are obliged to have reqpurse lo other sourees of relief than the immediate prescription of their family physician, and as each return of the winter season brings out a host ol professedly new specifics, some good, others use less, and many decidcdly dangerous, it becomes as much a matter of duty as interest, believing this to bo a remedy, oombuung the greatest advantages, with the least objections of any other in use, to make it as extensively known as practicable. Thst such is its character, is abundantly proved by the fact, that it has been extensively used the laat twenty years with unparalleled success ; that its reputation tias oontinued to spread and its sale increase, with little aid from advertising or published lists of cer tificates, (which all know can ns easily be had for a worthless preparation as for a meritorious one,) that by its own intrinsic merit, with the recommendation or persons benefited by its use, it has gamed itttpre sont pcyularity ; it is not trumpeted to the world aa a specific or cure all, but as a valuable and acientific auxiliary in pulmonary cases, ready at band, aud one that has been generally found to afford relief where moat others have been tried without material benefit. As such, it is recognised by numbers of our leading physicians, who know its composition, and have been e*e witnesses of its superior effioacv, as well aa by thousands of our most respectable citizens, to most of whom reference is cheerfully permitted.
