EVENING STAR. tourteiw yxab locu?i?. The woods around Eatontoo. Georgia are fall of loeaste, and the continued noise they make is almost deafening. It wands like the distant tinkling of a thousar.d small bells The wing? of these insects are marked with a W, and in olden time it was supposed that this letter foreboded war. The interest which this remarkaol* appearance excites in Chero forth all the powers of the Oeor gia as will be seen by the follow ing effaiion from the Atlanta Repablioan: THE LOCUS. You little red ide lnsex, What sings your song Upon the okes and various # Other trees, making a constant noise Like a steeo inline blowin' night a long ways off, Whar hav you bin sense last I hurd your voices, Some sixteen y?ar* ago? I wunder if you bav Staid ever since under the ground, Buried lhar out of sisht, 1 also wunder, now you h it cum out, What you do tin .J to eat For you dont seem to bav Such appetites as Pharo's insex, And ? at up every green thing. Ef you devour enything at awl I can't di?cuv? r it. Are vou raiy a p?*n Of War, or Peetilense, or Fammin, Or a!! together ? I don't think so, For I have seen vou several times Betore, and nothin' rortk'lar happened, 1 mm"jiaudy afterwards. [ cant think \ ou bring any efiex of cons^mfncc Ax all, and you can leeve just When you pl^es, or stay and holler on. Rksflts of Negro Emancipation.? We have had occasion frequently to pub lish frightful accounts of tho results of negro emancipation in the British West Indies. The subject has recently been presented in a more authoritative light by the Liverpool West India Association. In a recent memorial they stated form ally the well-known fact that the cost of production in most instances equals the value of the sugar crop. On the other hand, Cuba, by means of slave labor, has, within the short prriod of eight years, increased her cultivation from >10,465 boxes to 1,245,454 boxes of su gar : the shipments last year alone hav ing shown an increase of 170.000 boxes over those of the year preceding. [Sarun/wA Georgian. ZIT When Bonaparte's army were lying in camp, previous to the battle of Water loo, they complained bitterly of their ra tions, especially the bread. Ilowcver, they put up with it as long as they could, when a few men, more daring than wolf ish, went to the quarters of the attached Commissariat General, aad told him: "If rou don't give us better rations we will hang you!" The astonished contractor immediate ly sought an interview with the Emper or, ai d told him what had passed. "Did my men ?ay that?" said Napo leon. . "They did, Sire," said the General. "Well, my friend, I am certainly very sorry for you," said the Emperor; for if my men said so, they will certainly do it. Fashionable?Anything that is over valued. Navarino bonnets once sold for eighteen dollars apiece. When that was the case, the ladies would listen to noth ing else. About twelve months after wards they fell to six shillings a dozen. When that happened Navarinos were voted frights, and bestowed on beggar g'rls. Guess the author was right who stated that the world was "a universal mad-tiouae." C7* A Turkish proverb says, "The devil tempts other men, but idle men tempt the devil.'" A Spanish proverb, "What the fool does in the end, the wise man does in the beginning." A French proverb, "The noise of the world drowns the thunder of God." Fish Story.?Fish are caught in Puget Bay, Oregon, which, when dried and lit by the tail, burn like a candle !

M. Jackson, Philadelphia?Dear Sir: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst f nn, for the la?t five years. Such was my condition fo* .tielve months that the physieiai.s and all a jo saw ;iie said I must die. While iu this condition, I was carried to th?- watering places in Virginia, Tennes see and North Carolina, but wa-: npt benefited hy any w:;t?'r to which I was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a we<-k at Riithert'ordton, a smal I village in North Carolina, to try the effect of ??me Chalybeate water in that place. About the last of the week, 1 went into a dru* store to gel <onie medicine for my child and myseif. There we.ro several of the village physicians in the store, and one of them seemed to take some interest in my case and, after asking me some questions, said he twd been a dyspeptic, and had been greatly bene fitted by the u?e of " Dr. Hoofland's German Bit ters," prepared by y* n, and he insisted that I would try the Bitt?r3 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 f do say ( was more benefitted by it tlrin all the water and medicine I had ever taken. After reaching home one of my neighbors came to in j for a prescription and medicine, (he a dyspep tic,) and i gave him nearly all the Bitters I had left, W.-.ich effected much good in his ease. He has often : :i< >.! on me for more of the same k nd of medi ?n;ie, saying he was more benefitted by it than any ? Kher he had taken, but I have not been able to get tay more for him or myself ? , thero .iire, please ship me a doxen or more as soon am pot ?*ble. Respectfully vours, W. SMITH. D. R.
