EVENING STAR. SAY NOT MY HEART IS COLD. Say not my heart It cold, Because of a silent tongue; The lata of fruitless mould In silence aft hath hung. The fountain soonest spent, Doth babble down the steep; But the stream that ever went, Is silent, strong, and deep. The charm of a secret life, Is given to choicest thing* Of flowers, the fragrance rife, Is sent on viewless wings : We set not the charmed air Bearing some witching sound? Anil Ocean deep is where The pearl of price Is found. Where are the stars by day ? They burn though all uusoen; love of purest ray, Is in the stars, I wet-n : I'mi..irked Is the gentle light When the sunshine of joy appear*, But sweetlv in sorrows night 'Twill beautify thy tears. AlK>LPHr? gets I.tsriRED ?' Dearest I "Will build thee a cot all covered with ivy, iu t?me secluded vale, clone by a purling brook, meandering over it* |?ebbly bottom incessant bubbling iu dulcet tinkling strains 'love, love, Jove,' where the atmosphere is redolent of ?unthing, pyicy aroma?, that make the cj?h lajtgui-li, and the heart dissolve, in the liquid ire* of love?where the balmy zephyrs 9tgui:i the dent** forest's leafy mace, chanting love's melody?wherc.thfc tiny songitera. that whirl in ethrreal fpace, warble narught but love.

'An exchange ??ays : "Our junior part ner returned a pair of trourers to his tailor lart woek. because they were too small in the leg*. " But you told me to make them tight ax your skin, ' said the tailor. " True,"' quoth the colleague. " for I can sit down in my ikin. but I'll be ?plit if I can in these breeches."

Pine IIill. March 4. l"v>4. Dr. C. M. Jackson. Philadelphia?Dear Sir: I have been a subject of DyspPpsia. in its worst form, for th<Hast five years. Such was my condi tion for twelve months that the physicians and all who saw me said I must die. While in this con dition I was carried to the watering places in Vir ginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina, but was not benefitted by any water to which I was taken. While on my way home I stopped a week at R uth erfordton, a small village in North Carolina, to try the effect of some Chalybeate water in that pface. About the last of the week ] went into a thug store to get some medicine for my child and myself. There were several of the village physi cians in the store, and one of them seemed to take some interest in my case, and, after asking in some questions, said he had l?een a dyspeptic ami had been greatlv benefitted by the use of IIOOF LAND'S GERMAN BITTERS, prepared by you, and he insisted that 1 would try the Bitters, lie also called the next day at my room, and in sisted so much that 1 would try them that I a-ked him to get me one bottle. He did it, and I com menced taking It as directed, and I was more ben efitted by it than all the water and medicine I had ever lak<*n. After reaching home one of niy nelghlK>rs Canu te ine for a prescription and medicine, (he a dys peptic,) and I gave him nearly all the Bitters I cad left, which effected much good in his case.
