The following extract from a New York pa cannot fail to l>e interesting. In referring to^S the receipts o| Teas in this country for oneHrJ to3;ll> ultimo, it says the* will he 12.-1? ? z-7s:y?XT^ikT ?",ne?- mj \ oung Hyson Teas, of low and medium grades, have experienced an advance of one hundred per cent, over last season s closing prices. "It will thus be seen that the strong and rapid advance in the tea market has been the result of t? ^"PP'y aml active demand ; but when it is con sidered that we may hear at any moment of the en ff'r? 8iilaments at Shanghai, and. in lact, that, as soon as a sufficient force from England arrives at the seat of war. all five ports of entry in Jr pr?d?bly ^ placed under strict blockade, r would not be surprising to see Teas at a much higher figure than they have yet attained."

Nothing looks so improlable to those who have in vain tried all the wonderful medicines of the day, a* that a common weed growing on the pasture*, and along old stonewalls, should cure ever* humor in the a> stem ; yet it is a fixed fact. If you have a humor, it has to start. There are no II S nor AN US, hums nor ha's about it suiting some casws, butlnot yours. I peddled over a thousand liottle* of it in tne vicinity of Boston. I know the ellecls of it in every case. It has already done some of the greatest cures ever done in Massachusetts*. I gave it to children a > ear oid, to old peopie of sixty.

To those who are subject to a sick headache, ore liottle will alwnys cure it. It gives great relief in catarrh and dtxzincM. Some wno have taken it nau lieen costive for years, and have f>een regulated by it. Where the body is sound it works quite easy, but where there is any derangement ol the (unctions of nature.it will cause ver> singular leelmus, but you must not be alarmed; they always disappear in from four davs to a week. There is never a find re sult from it; on the contrary, when that feeling is gone, you vrill feel vourself like a new person. 1 heard some of the. most extravagant encomiums ol it that ever man listened to. ... In my own practice I always kept it strictly for hu mors?but since its introduction as a fcneral family medicine, jireat and wonderful virtues have been found in it that 1 never suspected.
