The Knickf.kbch ker Magazine, for Septem ber, has been issued by its punctual publisher, and it is full of the go<Hl things which its pop - ular editor. Mr. Clark, is so famous for collect ing. The editor gives the following ainusiug report of44one of the coolest examples of ' en forced curiosity' that he remembers ever to have met with'' : About noon of the day of my arrival in St Louis. I strolled into the bar-room ot Barnum* Hotel, and calling for a sherry cobbler, seated myself by a small table noar the bar. I had just finished my glass when a well dressed, res pectable looking personage, apparently about forty years of age. came in, and seeing no one else present except the bar keeper, acc*ted me with the salutation: '? Good morning, sir." 44 Good morning sir," I responded 1 Baltimorean, sir'" 44No, sir." 4* From New York ?" 41 Yes. sir." 4% One of the excursionist* V* 4' Yea, sir." ? VI ill you allow me to look at vonr ticket "Certainly, sir,-' (exhibiting it.) "(Carefully perusing it.) Mr , I hap^y to see you, sir. Is your lady with you7 " 4' Sorry for that, sir; sorry for thit. Mv name is W ; I *ra one uf tjj0 committee of arrangements tor the reception of visiters on this occasion We, of St. touis, do not intend to be outdone in hospitality by anv other citv ?specially Cincinnati; but we find that many of the excursionists, instead of applying to the committee for quarters, have gone to tlio hotels for nous. In all such cases, the committee are desirous or paying the bills, as they are ex trcme.y unwilling that the guests should be at any expense during their stay in St. Louis May 1 ask if you are staying at an hotel, and it so, at what ore? for it will give me great |Ieasure to arrange for the settlement of your I replied that I was not permanently located ?t any hotel and that I did not feel disposed to avail myscit of the hospitalitv of the city to a greater extent than I had already done. - He shall insist upon it, sir; and I trust you win notify me when you are settled." Just then a person in a seedy suit of black a man who had evidently seen better days, en tered the room and approached the bar, when my new acquaintance said to him, in a sterii and authoritative manner: jDg ?ogtor' J?u can'1 hare anything this morn Vhereupon the tmor Doctor, turning to him wiJi a *aj JeueJ look, replied: I haven t asked fur anything yet " 4 h*w With an expression of nnntterable despair the pyor tellow turned on bis heel and left when my companion remarked: JthV' ''u " one.f them?*t talented men in IS. ?2 ,s * physician by profession and once had a handsome practice; but. unfortu nately, he has given way to his habits of intem perance. and I tear that he is irretrievably lost. InVn 8 i ??*? Y?n3 i_n sPcaking to hiin in the manner I did. but I knew that if he called for drink at the bar. he would beinsultel. and I thought it woul J mortify him less to send him cobbler* b*V' *ir' W?n t you take a Sberr-T I; *viI thank you ?fr; Ihavejast t ikenone."

Nothing looks so improbable to those who have it vain tried all the wonderful medioinea of the day, as that a common weed growing on the pastures, and along old stone waHs.^almu Id onre every huniorinthe system ; yet it isuj hxed fact, If you have a humor, it has to start. There are no IFS nor AN OS, hums nor ha a about it suiting some oases, butfciot yours. I peddled over a thousand bottles of it in the vicinity of Boston. I know the effects of it in every oase. It baa already done some of the greatest cures ever done in Massachusetts. I fave it to children a year oid. to oid peopie 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. ' i T.Vtho?,eThoar*"ubjeotto * headache, one bottle will always cure it. It rives great relief in catarrh and dizziness. Some who have taken it had teenonstive for years, and have Uen regulated by L . 'Vhere the body ta sound it works quite easy, nut where there is any derangement of the functions of nature, it will oausa very singular feelings, but you must not be alarmed; the? alwaya disappear in from four daya to a week. There is never a had re sult Trom it; on the contrary, when that feeling is gone, you will feel yourself like a new person. 1 heard aome of the most extravagant encomiums of it that ever man listened to. In mr own pntotioe I always kept it strietly for ha mors?but shim its introduction as a general family medicine, great and wouderful virtuea have been found in it that I never suspected. Several rasesof epileptiofits?adisease which was always considered incurable, have been cured by a few bottles. O, what a mercT if it will prove effec tual in all cases of that awful malady?tneraare but few who have seen mot* of it than 1 nave. I know of several oasesof Dropsy,all of them agad People oared by it. For the various diseases of the Liver, Sick: Headache, Dyspepsia, Asthma, Fever and Ague, Fain in the Side.
