1’oetr.y • * A form by Thackeray. The last number of the Cornhill Magazine contains the following poem by Thackeray originally writlan in a lady's album: AIRS. KATHERINE'S LANTERN. (W BIf TICK by W. M. THACKEE AY IS A*LaUY’j Album.) "Coining from a gloomy court, Place of Israelite resort, Tlus okl lamp I’ve brought with me. Madaui, on its panes you'll see The initials K. and E." "An old lant.ru brought to mo? Ugly, dingy, battered, black!" (Here a lady I suppose Turning up a pretty nose)— "Pray, sir, take the old thing back. I’ve no taste fur oneabrac." "Please to mark the letters t wain" (I’m supposed t<> speak again) "Graven on the lantern pane. Can you tell me who was she, Mistress of the flowery wreath, And the anagram beneath— Tin mysterious R E.. "Full a hundred years are gone Since the little beacon shone From a Venice balcony: There, on summer nights It hung, And her lovers came and sung To their beautiful li. E. "llusli! in the canal below Don’t you hear the plash of oars Underneath the lantern’s plow, And tt thrilling voice begins To the sound of mandolins? Hcgins singing of tmiore And delire and dolose— O, the ravisiting tenure! "Lady, do you know the tune? Ah, we all of ua have hummed it! I’ve an old guitar lias tliipmmed it Under many a changing moon. Shall I try It? Do EG MI * * What is this? Ma loi, the fart is That my hand is out of practice, Aud my i>oor old liddle cracked is, And a man—1 let the truth out— Who’s had almost every tooth out, Cannot sing as once he sung, When ho was young as yon are young, When he was young and lutes were strung, And love-lamps in the casement hung.” IMrnkUte >u Uoiuwlir AuimaU. There are persons who regard it as a weak ness, in man or woman, to take pleasure ir their domestic animals. In some, perhaps, ii is such. We think we know individuals wh< have a stronger affinity to brutal natures tliai to their own species. Mr. A. loves his dog more than he does his neighbor, and Mrs. 11 preiers tire companionship ot her cat to that of the most refined lady in town, llut such are extreme eases ; and it is not with thest that we have to do in our present writing The domestic animals are given for the use— almost for the society—ol human beings. Wbj does the dog lorsake his own species, always prelerring the seeiety of his master, unless it be that God made him for the companionship of man? “The ass kuoweth his owner, am the ox his master's crib.” Many a human lift has been saved by a dog, even at the peril o its own. The horse is not only a sagacious creature, but by long acquaintance and kini treatment becomes attached to his keeper. The mau who would abuse a faithful horse or the woman who would starve a generous cow has disobeyed the laws of Him who made them both, and deserves not to own or b< served by either. We know men who becomi very strongly attached to a kind and obedien horse, which they have long owned, and win consider him almost as a member of the fain ily, setting a value upon him more sacred thai that which is measured by dollars and cents We recollect a case, of a remarkably intelli gent, willing and servicable horse, owned by i practising physician, who had been carried b; him many a dark and stormy night to his pa tients, over bad roads and amidst much haz ard. with expedition and safety' On the road be trusted him; in the stable he petted him For years the attachment was mutual, am grew stronger and stronger. One day “Char ley” was taken sick. The next rnomiug, a: we passed the doctor’s stable, we heard tin sound of some person taking on as in greal trouble. We opened the door, and there stood the humane doctor over the now dead bodj of his favorite 3teed crying outright, like out bereaved1. Was this a weakness? or was ii that trait in human nature which is honora ble to the genus homo?' We think it was tin latter. Aiiomer menu uuis, ail?, i .. ua> u uiusi gentle and excellent cow, which she raisei trom its very call'-hood, which she nuisec in its infancy, and whiclt has given to hei children the streams of life once supplied bj her own breast. It is a docile creature—s< placid, so confiding, that Lire woman actuallj loves the cow! Let a butcher come to pur chase her for slaughter, and no money could take her lo the shambles. To sec her killed would bring tears to her eyes and grief to her heart. Is this weakness ? or is it an affection honorable to her nature? So we may go through the whole list of do mestic animals which God has given for the use of that being who is himself half animal and half human, without which first half, by the way, he would he worse than he often is. The lamb, the fawn, the kid, the dog. the cat, the paiTot, the canary bud, the hen, the duck, the goose, the turkey—ail these appear to en liven the habitations of men, and we can con ceive of no lault or sin in any one’s becoming attached to them, enjoying their gambols, and ministering to their wants. We know a farm er who has purchased several of the handsom est horses, neat cattle, sheep, swine and fowls to be found In America, who calculates there by to he of service to the country by diffusing greater improvements in stock, die., but who, at the same time, remarked to us the other day, that if lie did not make one dollar on them he considered himself a gainer by the pleasure he took in caressing and exhibiting them. Is this a sin? On the contrary, is it not a virtue? For ourself, we like to go into our ham yard, call to our presence our beau tiful Devon heifere, and our trio of cosset sheep, mesmerize them by the gentle pisses of our hand, and feed them from the vessel we bear to them. We like thence to repair to the stable, and put an arm over the stately neck of our Bucephalus, who has carried us thousands of mdes in penis by land and water —deep mud—without ever failing us a step in our life. Kindness to brutes in the fi >ld or stall shows a nature that is sure to manifest all the amia ble affections in the family and in the neigh hood. If this is weakness, well would it be for the world if some hearts were'weakor than they are. XliAXI. Ecctvtric Divide.—The Rev. Zebulon Twitchel was the most noted Methodist preacher in Vermont, ior shrewd and laugha ble sayings. In the pulpit he maintained a suitable gravity of manner and expression, but out of the puipit he overflowed with tun. Occasionally he would, if emergency seemed to require, introduce something queer in a ser mon lor the sake of arousing the flagging at tention ot his hearers. Seeing that Uis audi ence was getting sleepy, he .paused in his dis course and discussed as follows: "Brethren, you haven’t any idea of the suf ferings of our missionaries iu the new settle ments, on account of the mosquitoes. The mosquitoes in some of the regions are enor mous. A great many of them would weigh a pound, and ibey will get on the logs aud bark when the missionaries are going along.” By this time all ears and eyes were open and he proceeded to tinish his discourse. The next day one of his hearers called him to an account for telling lies in the pulpit. "There never was a mosquito that weighed a pound,” be said. •‘But I didn't say one of them would weigh a pound, I said a great many, and I think a mil lion of them would.” “But you said they barked at the missiona ries.” "No, no brother, I said they would get on the logs and bark.’ I^a Ac CKI.KHUITEO Worcestershire Suuce !

Gents:—My grandchild, a lit j tie gh'l of 2 1-2 years old, was taken sick in Port'aud, Me., in January, lfc5ti. No one could tell what was ■ the matter with her. But she was much pressed for ; breath; bail a hard, tight cough; could not raise; her ; throat ho ublcd hoi greatly; she seemed to be idling up, and though attended by the best physicians in Portland, they could not help her, and she declined; and for some three months was not expected to live, llcrdoctois, and at length her friends, gave up all 1 hopes of her reco very. $he was brought home to my j house in Fhipsbiug, Me. We tried Cod Liver Oil, but the effect seemed rather opposite from good. Shciiow j could not move licr hand, so reduced was she. i was ■ taking Larookuh’s Syrup at llie time, acd commenced • giving it to her, and in a week, she showed quite a change for the better, and we continued giving it to her.

The unfortunate should be fauticulau in selecting his physician, as it is a lamentable yet Incontroverti ble fact, that many syphilitic patients are made mis erable with ruined constitutions by maltreatment from inexperienced physicians in general practice; tor itisa poiutgenerally conceded by the be§( svphilogra pliers, tliat the study and management of these come plainta should engross the whole time of those who would be competent anil successful in their treat ment and cure. The inexperienced general practi tioner, having neither opportunity nor time to mak hiinself acquainted with their pathology, commonly pursue.-i oue system of treatment, in most cases mak ing an indiscriminate use of that antiquated and dan gerous weapon, the Mercury. Have Confidence. All who have committed an excess of any kind, whether it be the solitary vice of youth, or the sting ing rebuke of misplaced coutidcnce in maturer years, SEEK FOB AS ANTIDOTE IN SEASON.
