1* O E TllV. Oltl Music. Back in mi the misty realms of time, Back from the years agone, Faintly we catch the ringing rhyme, And hear the melody ami chime Of golden songs, of strains sublime, Like the carol of birds at dawn. And ever we hear them soft and low, Harping their music sweet, Songs that we loved in the long ago, Kippliug their litjuid ebb and tlow, Drifting their cadence to and fro, Like the fall of fairy feet. Some faces our heart will ever hold, dame smiles we may remember vet, . There were llowiug locks like the sunset s S° > Th 'VP were parted lips of Cupid’s mow. , And the songs they sang nan ue’eiigio' For our hearts can ne’er forget. “Falls"the’Winter rain. sicleoiwl Story. HUNTING A MOKDEKEEn A Tluiiliug Story. Iu the year 184—I was living in a retired little shootiug lodge on the south-west coast ol Ireland. About a month previous to the timed which 1 write, a gentleman had been shot down at his own gale in Tipperary. Ev erybody knew that the murderer was lurking somewhere in my neighborhood in the bop e of obtaining a passage to America. An unus ually large reward had been ollered lor his ap prehension, and the police were scouring the country night and day, in every direction. One tine summer evening 1 had returned from a long day's fishing on the buy,-and was smoking a tarewell pipe tor the night, witen 1 heard the tramp of horses’ feet on the gravel outside, followed by a sharp ring at the bell. It was with uo small delight that 1 recogniz ed the well-known voice of Frank Butler, a constabulary otticer, and one of my oldest friends. When we had seen the horse put up (a splendid hunter, which had carried his master nearly sixty miles that day,) and «at down to supper, 1 noticed Frank looked "more tired and careworn than 1 had seen him before. It was not long until the cause came out. “You have heard ot this minder, ol course, Harry,” he said; “that is wbathiought me ov er to-night; it occurred in my district, and the gentleman was an intimate friend. I would nave dined with him that day, hut was called suddenly on duty, and sent an apology at the last moment. 1 was told since that he walk ed down to his avenuegatc to meet me. llis hand was on the latch when the villain fired from behind a tree, and lie did not bring his life to th; ground. You know this country well?” hp added abruptly. • iso well that i( the follow is lying out any where within five miles,I think I could under take to put you on his ti aek.” Frank sprang from his chair and walked hurriedly through the toom. “I woukl give my Viglit arm to lie face to face with him, Harry. If you had seen pioor -’s wile; her weary, hopeless face has been haunting me ever since; I can never rest un till the murderer is taken, and I have certuiu information that he is lying out somewhere. Every house has been searched over and over again, but I cannot think of bringing you in to the business. One victim is enough. It it were known you would be a marked man.'’ “Make your mind easy oil that score, Frank not one ol lUc fell aws here will touch a hair oi my head, especially in a stranger’s quarrel.— My life is the most of tl.eir leases, and the heir-at-law is not such a favorite that they would shoot me to bring him in. So now to business. 1 will get the ordinance map, and we can trace out the plan of our campaign.’’ oui tains was out sucu a diliicult one, alter all; the ground to lie searched was limited ami tolerably open, consisting chielly of bog mountain and shore, with every toot of which f was acquainted. I piointed out to Frank eaciiday’s work on the map; and without as sistance, aud hunting in couples, three days would be amply sufficient to beat if all. 1 had a brace of young setters in training at the time, and, to prevent suspicion, it was agreed we should go out as if dog-breaking was our only object; accordingly, early the fallowing morning, well provided with all tlie “etceteras’’ for such work, we started on our first day’s hunt. It proved a blank; hut Use secoud day showed us that our game was on foot and not tar oif. In a littie wooded glen we came upon several aitlmly concealed eavos, which were evidently lately occupied, aud in one of them 1 picked up an old pistol dint that had been thrown away aud replaced, as there was some paper lying beside, Horn which a small piece had been torn, as if to coyer a new one. We tracked footsteps for n considerable distance from it, and darkness coming on we were forced to give up the search. I don’t think either ot us slept much that night. When I went to Frank’s room in the morning, he was already dressed. “One word, ilarry,” he said,‘'before we go. This man is armed to the teeth, and swears that he will not be taken alive. These fellows seldom die game when run to the earth, but he can not he worse oil’ and may keep his word.— l'romise me that, if there is any fighting, you will act as a reserve, and leave me to deal with him alone.” I did promise, with some mental reserva tion, and we started. There was a long day’s work lieiore us; all tlie likely places we had come across in our previous search had to be visited, some of them miles apart. Frank’s sensas seemed preteruaturally sharpened. No trace, however slight, escaped Iris notice. A red Indian could have hardly displayed more sagacity in following up liis enemy’s fraii. It was then, for the first tune, that 1 learned how exciting a man-hunt becomes under certain circumstances. Toward evening we reached a mountain— our last hope. There was only one lace of it over the sea. where a man would be likely to conceal himself. That side was composed of a number of perpendicular cliff’s, separated front each 6ther by green platforms, varying in breadth trout one loot to ten; but all slop ing downward at a considerable angle so as to make the looting rather precarious. The clUTs gradually increased in height until the lowest, which went right down lor one hundred feet into (he Atlantic Ocean. While taking a hurried cast through some broken ground, we met a little hoy herding cattle. He could not speak English, hot we managed to ascertain tiiat a stranger had giv en him a penny tlie day before, to run down the hill for a lighted turf; when he returned the uian was gone, and he had not seen him Binee. The scent was getting hot, aud our spirits rose as we commenced on the sea side of the mountain. There were eaves in several of the piaLforms, and these we agreed to search to gether, They were very narrow, scarcely ad mitting one person abreast; and it was nerv ous work ieeitng om- way onward, not know ing the moment when the darkness would be iiiumiuated by the Hash of a pistol which must have proved the death signal for the one or the other. Frank always insisted on going first, and omitted uo precaution, examining the outside carefully for Hacks, and sending the dogs forward. The latter, however, were so tired after three days continuous work as to be of little use. Vv e had reaci.ed tlie Iasi shell hut one, and a3 it contained no carps, and was nearly all visible from the platform immediately above, which had just been seaaclied, 1 was about to pass to the lower oue just over the sea, when a mark in the fiesh earth scraped from a rab bit hole across the path attracted my atten tion, aud, on a closer view, I could distinctly sea traces ot a man’s foot. Frank was by my side in a tew seconds, and down on his knees examining Hie track. There was no mistake about II; there it was plainly visible, leading inwaid, and no sign of it returning, home one was there; whether the man we were in search of or not remained to bo seen. Frank rose trow his Imees and drew a long breath “Any outlet trom this?” he asked “None whatever it stops suddenly about one hundred yards turtlier on. The rock above and below is tiiirty feet high and I smooth as marble. Now that I remember there is a large stone just where the pathway ends, behind which a man might fie. it he were anywhere else 1 must have seen him hom tlie upper one.” We walk: d ou silent amt cautious lor some distance until we reached a projecting rock. \ I touched Frank, “When we turn that eomerwe will lie with in ten rods of the end.” He made no reply, but put his gun under ,''s',‘rTn arJc* sauntered carelessly around. As *i mu so 1 saw him stop suddenly and draw lilmselt up to his mil height. Standing alongside, i could sec the figure H e su,m.°irt U4? ltke * wUd beast behind ofntavVifible ■*h7e iU pointed directly at „s°‘ Tim d^s n^p,™ forward and commenced hayiul forfously 1 he man was the first to speak y' “Call off your dogs,” he shouted “ V ver care for them!” -T Jer “Eet the digs alone, Ryan,- safo Frank coolly. “I have a warrant for yon for the murder ot Captain—. Puty down and come forward. ’ * 1 The fellow gave a savage laugh. “Come, step nearer, Butler, and see if VOIIr warrant cannot stop a ball!” •’ “We must give tlie follow time to think Harry. If we rush at him now, he ;s sure u| knock one or the otliet of iis over, and 1 don’t like shooting him, if it can he helped.” Had you not better go for some of your eMows? 1 will keep guaid until your return.” rhi/it ^ Wi°ul<l s,loot bim at once.

Don’t fir** tin , ce me down; th^n With some reluctance 1 consented to go round. Taking ntt tny slioes, I crept cau tiously down and peered over. 1 had scarce ly done so, wUen Trank stopped out again with his watch in his hand. He si,c*'|e ‘ow> but every word tell on my ear distinctly. ‘‘I shall give you live minutes, H)an; and if you don't throw down your arms then and come out expect no mercy, tor you will oet none; I'll shoot you as 1 would a mad dog.” . ,, then sav your prayers in the meantime,'’ said urn rutiiaii, jecriugly; ‘‘you’ll want them it you lilt that gun to your shoulder.” The live minutes which ensued were the longest 1 ever spent in my life. It was a glorious summer evening. The sun wasifoui" down, throwing a Hood of light on the wean , below, aud the while wings of the sea gulls as they flitted in aud out lrom their nests in the dill. The rabbits were at play on tile slopes, anti a colony of coughs were wheeling and screaming over my head. But lor the crouching and bloodstained figure be neath, all would have looked peaceful and happy, i tried to keep counting the seconds by the beating oi my own heart, which was plainly audible; but every trilling incident was sufficient to attract my attention. There ?1Tt| biack suake crawling toward a “l I •1itlfSrn U),. sl’e,!ll|ate whether he would reacn it belore the time was up. Then a wren, whose best was hi the hush, perched uear me uid commenced chattering aud swearing in my face until a hawk came glid ing round, and Uie little follow with a erv oi' terror disappeared in the grass. 3 Two minutes had passed away. I looked down at the murderer, it was evident that the words were beginning to tell. He moved uneasily from side to side like a wolf in a trap. (several times he examined the lock of his pistol, and tried to find a place in the rock which wouki afiord more sheller. Once 1 thought he was going to .-i>eak, but the words seemed to choke him. Then crossing himself devout ly, and having arranged Ins weapon ap parently to his satisfaction, he lay sullenly abiding his tithe. Would the live minutes never pass” Frank stood directly in front, watch in hand, and the gun under his arm. He had fit a cigar, aud was lounging lazily hack against the cliff. Hareless as he appeared, I knew 1 i.n too well to doubt that he would hesitate for a moment in going or firing as he had promised. At the tunc he was giving lii» antagonist fearful odds. Then only I began to realize the part I had to play. It was unfortunately too plain. The man must be disabled before he commits an other murder. That otdy could be done by shooting him down. In a lair fight 1 would not, I think, have hesitated; but" my blood rail cold at the idea now. Yet what was 1 to do” There was no other way to save my friend's life, aud, God help me, it must be done. 1 nerved myself up to fire at all risk, the in stant I saw the murderer putting his finger on the trigger of his pistol, and had just brought my gun to bear when Frank’s voice rang out loud aud clear. i our utue uas come—look up. Involuntarily be did so, and I caught bis eye; a spasm ot mortal fear passed over his features. lie made an effort, to raise his pis tol, but a wire caitridge from Frank’s gun on the cliff behind him passed within an inch ot his head. The weapon dropped from his hand; in throe bounds my friend had him in his clutch, dragged hint over the rock, and the struggle began. It was snort, but from the nature of the ground a fearful one. A careless step would have sent the two over the precipice to the shell below, and from there a hundred feet down into the Atlantic ocean. Both were strong, powerful men; in weight the murder er was greatly superior, but in science and ac tivity there were lew able to cope with Frank. The murderer struggled hard tor an inside place, and succeeded in getting a kind ot cleft in the rock, which gave a slight advantage.— It was omy momentary; Frank tore him from it wiUi a puil that brought some of the loose stones crashing down, and with the shock they went reeling and staggering to the very edge of the eiilf. 1 could stand it no longer; thern was a ion cheek cord which l had brought ior my do-sT m my pocket; fastening it to a bush, I lower ed myself down. As I touched the ground he succeeded in drawing a kuile. Frank parried the thrust, and disengaging his left hand stiuck him heavily twice. The man dropped on his knqps and began to beg lor mercy. I rushed ibrward with a vague feeling of terror. As i came up the unfortunate wretch cried out: “.Save me, for God's sake, sir! He's going to throw me over!” s ° 1 looked at Frank’s face; there was an ex pression there I never saw before, and would not like too see again. “Let him go, Frank,” 1 shouted, “that's the hangman’s work, not yours.” He did not hear me; grasping the fellow with both hands, he swung himself half around and Hung him off with ail his strength. It was well the coat be wore was made of the strong est frieze; as it was we were nearly going over together 1 laid him on his back, where he re mained without strength or motion. Frank glared at him ior a few seconds in silence, and then took my hand and said slowly: •■Vou are a good fellow, Harry, and I thank you. 1 didn’t knaw what I was doing.” He turned away with a shudder, while I poured out some brandy from my flask, and threw it in the murderer's lace. He recovered after a time and sat up, staring wildly round and trembling all over. 1 never saw a wretch so completely subdued. He clung to me for protection, and became as abject and cringin' as he had been insolent before. Wo waited until dusk and then brought hitn to the po lice barracks. Belore sunrise the next morn ing he was twenty miles on his way back from whence he came. At the next assizes he was tried and convicted. The judge was merciful and gave him a “long day.” In the meantime lever broke out in jail, and he was one ot the lust victims. The last words he uttered were “Don’t throw me overt” Let us hoiie his pray er was granted. Great Reduction in Price -OF Boots and Shoes. C. F.

You examined her case, ami told me exactly her symp toms from the commencement of her sickness, which were very peculiar; also told me that there was something alive in her, and also said there was a num ber of them, and told me that she drank them from a rain-water cistern. You said that you would not warrant a cure, but would try and do the best you could for her. She commenced taking your medicine in August last, and from that time until December, the child has passed off large quantities of what we call Tadpoles, from rain-w ater, ami 1 think, and am certain that the child must have died had it not been for you. And I advise everybody to sec Mrs. Man chester, for 1 know that she has the power of know ing the condition of a person diseased hotter than any peysician tlmt 1 have ever heard of. My child is now perfectly healthy. Please have this published, aud let the world know that there is oue w ho practises what they profess to. Very truly and gratefully yours, George E.

As I have in my proceeding letters so fully describ ed the symptoms and pathology of Catarrh, and the various diseases of the air passages, aud pointed out their Important relation to consumption, and other diseases of the chest. I shall in the present instance, content myself by furnishing the following strong proofs of their curability. To show the permanency of cures effected by In halation,! will here refer to persons now living in the enjoyment of good health, whose cases were pro nounced hopeless and incurable some years since, ami were cured by Dr. Alorse’s Remedies, mostly through the medium of Inhalation. Hundreds of other similar cases might be mentioned. CONSUMPTION. Mrs. Sophia A* Fittz, formerly of Bath, now a res ident of Oak Iffll, Brunswick, of this State, was re duced to a very low state by sickness iu 1862.. It was soon manifest, that her lungs were lal>oring under tu berculous ulceration, which was fast wasting her life away. Her physician thought the structure of her left lung was almost destroyed. Her case was considered hopeless and incurable by ail other friends ami phy sician. She was placed under the care of Dr. Morse of Portland, by whom a perfect cure was effected, mostly through the medium of Inlialation. Mrs. F. has enjoyed better health since than ever befbre. ASTUiMA. Mrs. Dorcas Lawrence of Falmouth, this State, I was in a feeble state of health for a long time, causod.by Asthma, or Phthisic, ditliculty ot breath - j ing, and other alarming symptoms, which cause*) much suffering, which rendered her case hopeless in the minds of her friends. She was restored to a per fect state of health by the use of Dr. Morse’s Reme dies, mostly through the medium of Inhalation. PNEOIONIEA. * Mrs. Samuel Hill of West Buxton, in this State, was severely troubled with Pucumonica, a disease affecting the lungs, their membrane or motive power, characterized by irregular, impeded or painful re spiration. After long suffering, a council of three physicians was called. After consultation, they gave no en couragement of a cure. She w as placed under the care of Dr. Morse of Portland, and in a tew montlis restored to perfect health, mostly through the medi um ol Inhalation. UEMOKKI1ARE. Rev. William Leavitt, brother of Mrs. llill, having heard of bis sister’s recovery, applied to Dr. Morse. His disease was Hemorrhage of the Lungs, which caused great debility, lie was obliged to relinquish preaching, and entertained doubts about ever being able to resume his vocation. He placed himself un der the care of Dr. Morse, and in a lew months was restored to health through the medium of Inhala tion, and is at present preaching to the people ot West Buxi on. UEMORKHAGE. Mr. Isaac L. Barnes, of Brunswick, of this State, was troubled with Hemorrhage of the Lungs, and oth erwise affected, in 1862, had lost over thirty pounds ot flesh, was troubled with palpitation of the heart, bled one pint a day for six days in succession, reduced very weak. Mr, Barnes was fully restored to health by the use of Dr, Morse’s Inhaling Remedies. Still enjoys good health. HExllOKIHIAGE. Rev. Horace Norton, of Meadville, Pa., after being reduced to a very low state of health, by Hemorrhage roin the Lungs, was so feeble that he could not walk five rods without assistance. Came to Portland, placed himself under the care of Dr. Morse. He grad ually improved until ho was fully restored to health. H19 weight increased from 121 pounds to 1C5 pounds. ASTHMA. Mr. James A. Page, ot Bloomfield, (afterwards re moved to Aroostook) was severely troubled with Asth ma from a child, often so badly that he could not per form any Labor for months together. It was a com ,mou thing for him to l»e obliged to sit up all night, with much difficulty of breathing. Mr. Page was radically cured through the medium of Inhalation, obtained of Dr. Morse. C'ATARRlff, UROlYfllMT.**, Ac. Mr. Isaac Robinson, of Fast Vassalboro', was se verely troubled with pulmonary disease for five years, with Chronic Catarrh, Bronchitis, severe hoarseness; could not s|*cak above a whisper for several months, during which time he was confined to his room; a large abscess formed on one lung, which broke and was discharged tlu'ough the tubes out of tbe mouth. His physician (bought his case h<q*eless. He was place* 1 under the care of Dr. Morse, and gradually improved by the uso of the luhaling Remedies, umil he was fully restored to health. CHRONIC CATARRH. Mr. Silas W. Berry, ot Waterville, this State, was troubled with Chronic Catarrh and pulmonary di ease, which was the cause of frequent spells of As phyxia, or suspended animation. He had lost five sisters who died with consumption, and was much alarmed about himself. Mr. Berry was fully restored to health by the use of Dr. Morse’s Inhaling Reme dies. AN IMPORTANT CUKE. Mrs. Caroline Atkinson, of Cornish, of this Slate, a widow whose husband gave his life to his country in our recent cinl war, and daughter of Mr. Samuel Knight, ot the same town, was seriously attacked by a disease of the Luugs. She luui fastened upon her dangerous swnpfoms, by which she was prostrated very low, and unable to oe removed for several days, and was given up to die. Other orgaus were serious ly att’ected, and their natural secretions suppressed. In this condition she placed herself under the care ot Dr. Morse. Through the medium of his Inlmliug Remedies she was fully restored to health, and is now a hale and hearty woman. Dr. Morse has the names of more Hum two thou sand persons on his books, who have boon cured ot Catarrh in its various forms, and it is sate to say that all the above named cases were caused by Catarrh, or proceeded from that complaint. Persons at a distance can be treated by letter. Your obedient servant, CHARLEN IIORNE, Physician for Diseases of the Throat and Lungs, No. 5 Deering Street, Portland, Me.
