Maiden's fair, oh! have a care; Vovra are many?truth is rare T*b IltrrocaATic Oath.? The Biographic TJniveraelle. publiahed In Paris In 1817. contains the following veralon of the Ilippocratic Oath.to which Dr. IThl will refer in his defence before the Aoademy of Medicine: " I awear," Hippocrates made hia student say, Mby Apollo, by Esculaplua. by Hygeia, and the other gods and goddesses of medicine, to keep re ligiously the solemn promise to which I bind my self I shall look upon that man as my own father who shall have Instructed ine in the art of heal ing. I shall briny all my knowledge to bear in aiding his necessities in every reape* t. I shall conaidcr hia children mine, and shall teach them medicine gratuitously. If they desire to embrace that profeaaion. I shall act in the same way to warda those who shall be bound by the oath which 1 rake Never will 1 sulT-r mvself to be In lured to administer a poisonous medicament or to pro duce an abortion. # ? ? My only aim will he to comfort and heal the sick, to keep Inviolate their confidence, and to avoid even the suspicion of having abused it. especially iu the case of wo men In whatever position I may find myself. 1 will preserve silence with regard to things which I judge ought to be kept secret. May 11# a re ligious observer of my oath, receive the fruit of my labors, and lead a'happy life, constantly at tended by the public favor. May the contrary l?e my fate it I become perjured." A siw motive fowbb.?Sr. Carbia, of Cuba, has invented a new system of propelling vessels, so we learn from the Diarlo de la Marina. His plan proposes the building of windmills on the decks ofthe ships, with great wings,from which the motion Is communicated to side-wheels, sim ilar to those of steamships. The models have been successfully worked; and it only remains to be *?en whether the farce of the wind will be sufficient, when thus applied, to give vessels the velocity of ordinary sailing vessels. If this prob lem is satisfactorily solved the Diario says it is evident that a Wind will ship will be able to sail Just as well with a cont.ary as with a fair wind, bccauM it being perfectly easy tn alter the posi tion of the wings. they may be always opposed to the wind, whatever direction H'may blow from. The inventor ha? asked for the protection of a patent from the Cuban government, and as soon as it ia granted, he will commence to make bis experiments upon a large scale. ACflgn Approachixa both to tui Earth a.id to tbv Scn.?A circular from the editor of the Astronomical Journal announces the Uiscove ry by Dr. Peters, of the Dudley Observatory. Al bany. of a faint comet in the constellation of Cam elopurdalus. which has neither nucleus no: uil, and Is without any well-defined outline. From his observations of July 5li, 2l?, and 27, Dr. Peters baa computed para?>ofic elements which show that the couiet is approaching both to theea t and to the sun, and has a chance to become of splendid appearance near the perihelion, at the and of August or beginning or September. By comparing these elements with those computed for the orbits of other comets, and recorded in the catalogues. Dr. Peters infers that this comet is not identical with any of thoseexpected to return duriag or about this year, as D'ATreat's, DeVico' or Charles \ 's, or his own thirteen-years comet LLr A professional brother of Boston has for waded to the Jersey City "retired physician whose sands of life nave nearly run," a cask of Hue beach sand to supply the vacuum. LLr An exchange, in speaking of a celebrated singer, says: ?ller voice is delicious?pure as the moonlight and aa tender aa a three shilling shirt.'' lLr A Western paper offers to write *4Mi." before, or after the names of such of its subscribers, in directing their papers to them, as will pay twenty-live cents extra, or add l?oth of said "handles' for fifty cents extra.

Ann F.d mowUon pleaded guilty on an indictment for in fanticide. but the jury gave a verdict of not guil ty, knowing better than the girl heis-lf, of course. lL/~ A magnificently sublime thought Is thede termination that the llrst telegraphic message across the ocean, .a case of success, should be the following: ?? Glory to God In the highest, and, on earth, Peace?good will toward men.'' Tobacco is Vibgibia.?The Richmond South reports a falling off in the supply of tobacco com ing to that market at this tune, which Ntate of things is likely to continue for several months to come. Tobacco is at a stand In price if any changes take place It will certainly be au ad vance.

ITT" A merchant at New Orleans while laud ing from a steamer, accidentally drooped his watch, valued at SG22 in J2 feet deep water. Bor rowing a pig of uon and line from the mate, he tied the pig to the line, and sunk it beneath the wheel-house, as nearly as possible where the wstch was sunk ; and tying the upper end of the line to a slick of wood, dropned tne stick in the water and left it to float. Early next morning he came on board, and diving, brought the watch up. "the first thing." * ARRIVALS AT THE HOTELS BROWNS' HOTEL -D Shivers.

The following extract from a New York cannot fail to be interesting. I n referring to, the receipts of Teas in this oountry for one! B?r up to 3>th ultimo, it ss>s they will be 12,-1 ? ,<?o pounds short of the imports of tiie year end ing June 3h, 18SS,end that ?' The advanoe in black teas. Oolongs, since last December, has been fifteen cents per pound; and Young Hyson Teas, of low ami medium grades, have experienced an advance of one hundred per cent, over last season's closing prices. "It wiil tn iin he seen that tha strong and rapid advance in the tea market has been the result of t. short supply and active demand ; but when it iacon sidered that we may hear at any moment of the en tire suspension ot shipmenta at Shanghai, and. in faot, that, as soon as a sufficient force from England arrives at the seat of war, all five ports of entry iu China, will probably be placed under strict blockadc, it would not he surpriaing to see Teas at a much higher figure than they have yet attained."

Two or three bottles are warranted to core the most most desperate case of Rhenmatiam. Three to four bottles are warranted to oura Salt rheum. Five to eight bottles will oure the worst oaeo of Scrofula. A benefit is always experienced from the first bot tle, and a perfect cure is warranted when the above quantity is taken. Nothing looks so improbable to tho*e who have in vain tricxT all the wonderful medicines of the day, as that a oommoa weed growing oa the pastures, and along old stone walls, should cure every huruorinthe system ; yet it is a fixed fact. If you Lave a humor, it has to start. There are no I PS nor A N 1)S, hums nor ha's aliont it suiting some cases, butftnot yours. I peddled over a thou Hand bottles of it in the vicinity of Boston. I know the etfects of it in every case. It &as already done some of the greatest cures ever done m Massachusetts. 1 gave it tcqphildren a year oid. (o aid pcopie of sixty. I have seen poor, puny, wormy-looking children, whose flesh was soft and flabby, restored to a perfeot state of health by one bottle. To those who are subjeot to a siok headache, one bottle will always cure it. It gives great relief in catarrh and dizziness. Some who have taken it had lieen costivo for years, and have been regulated by it. Where the body is sound it works qnite easy, but where there is any derangement of the functions of natnre, it will oause verr singular feelings, but you must not t>e alarmed; the? always disappear in from four days to a week. There is never a r>ad re sult from it; on the contrary, when that foeiiag is gone, you will feel yourself like a new person. I hoard some of the most extravagant encomiums of it that ever man listened to. In my own practice 1 always kept it strietly for hu mors?out sinoe its introduction ae a general family mcdicme, great and wouderfui virtues have been found in it that I never suspeoted. Several cases of epileptic fits?a disease whioh was always considered incurable, have been cured by a few bottles. O, what a mercy if it will prove effec tual in all cases of that awful malady?there are but few who have seen moce of it than 1 save. 1 know of several cases of Dropsy, all of them aged Jeople cured by it. For the various diseases of the .ivcr, Sick Headache, Dyspepsia, Asthma, Fever aud Ague, Pain in the Side, Diseases of the Spine, and particularly in Diseases of the Kidneys, Ac., the discovery has done more good than any merfioine ever known. No chancs of diet ever ncoessary?eat the best you can get and enough of it.
