INC STA THE EVE JUG HOUB IT SYVOII. Th* femM was over, the slaves gone, The dwarfs and dancing girls had nil retired; The Anh lore and poet's *n?g were done, And every sound of revelry expired ; Tha lady and her lover, left alone, The rosy flo.?d of twilight's sky admired ; Av* Maria 1 o'er the earth and tea, That heavenlieat hour of Heaven is worthiest th ! Ave Mana, bleaeed be the honr ! The time, the ciinia, the spot where I so oft Have f. It that moment in its fullest power Sink oVt the earth so beautiful and soft, While swung ih* deep bell in the dinant tower, Or the faint dying day hymn stole aloft, And not a breath crept through the rosy air, And yet the forest leave.- seem'd sttrr'd with pray r. Ave Maria, 'tis the hour of prayer! Ave Maria, Tis the hour o( love! Ave Maria, may our spirit* dars Look up to thine and to thy 8?>n's above I Ave Mana, oh that face so fair ! Those flowneast eyes beneath the Almighty do\e, What though tis but a pictured image strike That painting is n:? idol? \is too like. Sweet hour of twilight?in the solitude of the pine forest and the silent shore J Which bounds Ravenna's immemorial wood, Rooted where once the Adrian wave flow'd o'er, Where the lan C Marian fortress stood, Evergreen forest ! which Boccacia's lore %nd Drvden's lay made haunted ground to me, flow have I loved the twilight hour and thee. The shrill cicalas, people of the pine, Making their summer lives one cease1 - Were the sole echoes, save my ste-? ', * _d . *' And vesper bells that waves *!e boughs aSoni' ' The spectre huntsman of , mesti's ii?P, *' wwhflU!!3i *Ud ch**e' *nd th? thro ig Wnich learned ,roin th,a example not to fly From a tru**. lover?shadow'd my mind's eye. Oh, Kesperus! thou bringest all good things 'iiome to the weary, to the hungry cheer, To the young bird the parent's brooding wings. The welcome stall to the o'er labored steer! Whate'er of peace about our hearthstone cling# Whatc'er our houcehold gods protect of dear.' Are gather'd round us by the look of rest; Thou bringest the child, too, to the mother's brea -t Soft hour' which wakes th* wish and melts tlic heart Of tho^e who sail tbe seas, on the first day, When thev from their sweet friends are torn apart; ' ?r fills with love the pilgrim on his way, As the far beU of ve?per makes him start, Seeing to weep the dying day's decay ; Is this a fancy which our reas?*n scorns? *h sorely nothing dies bu; something mourns. A 'Biting Jokb.?At the embodiment of the Edinburgh militia, in Dalkeith, their noble Colonel was inspecting the men individually. In doing so, his at tention was attracted to a recruit, well known in the Canongate, who has, it seems, given up the calling of 41 Canil Coals!" to shoulder Brown Bess. 441 am afraid you won't do," said his Grace to the man; 441 wonder they passed, you:" 14 What way (Scotch for why,) said the recruit. 44 Why ? Because you have lost youi front tee .h; you will not be able to biti the cartridge." 44 Wull I no'!" said the coalman, who did not know he was addressing his Grace; 44 put yer finger in my mouth, sir. an' ye'11 soon ken whether I can bite or no." The Duke did not put the suggested experiment to the test. A Potato Conspiracy.?The Phila delphia Pennsylvanian says that a secret association exists in that city composed of the dealers in potatoes, who by inge nious management have covered with their contracts and operations all the region of country from which the city ol Philadelphia draws its supplies of that vegetable. In this manner it is alleged that the conspirators have monopolized the supplies to such an extent that thej have the market entirely at their mercy and can keep up the prices to suit them selves. Tj* The last case of absence of mind is recorded of a lady, about to 44 whif up some eggs for sponge cake, wh< whipped the baby and sung Watt's cradli hymn to the eggs.

M. Jacksou, Philadelphia?Dt-ar Sir: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst f. rin, for the last five years. Siien was my condition f?.r twelve months that the physicians and all who saw me said I must die. While in this condition. I wrs carried to the watering places in Virginia, Tennes see and North Carolina, but wa* not benefited by any water to which 1 was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a week at Rutherfordton, a sm^ I village in North Carolina, to try the effect <-l some Chalybeate water in that place. About the last of the week, I went into a drug store to get some medicine for my child and myseif. There were several of the village physicians in the store, and one of them seemed to take some interest in my case, aud, after asking me some questions, said be had been a dyspeptic, and had been greatly bene fitted by the use of 14 Dr. Hooflanrf's German Bit ters," prepared by you, and he masted that I would try the Bitten He also called the next day at my room, and insisted so much that I would try them that I asked him to get me one bottle. He did it, and I commenced taking it as directed, and I do say I was more benefitted by it than all the water and medicine I had ever taken. After reaching home one of my neighbors came to me for a prescription and medicine, (he a dyspej' tic,) and i gave him nearly all the Bitters I had lett, which effected much good in his case. He hasoft< n called on me for more of the same k nd of medi cine, saying he was more benefitted \0 it than ai.y other he had taken, but I have not been able to g. t ar?y more for him or myself V.

"Hoofland's Ger man Bitters" have aured me of the most stubborn and aggravated case of the piles that, perhaps, evi r fell t? the lot of man. My case is not a stranger in tnis community, as I am well known in this and the -airroiinding counties, and can truly sav that my r< covery has astounded all my friends and relation as I had tried everything recommended, and nothirg did uie any go<*l until 1 was prevailed upon to try the Bitters.
