EVENING STAR. 000 KH0W8 IT ALL. In the dim receas of thy spirit's chamber, I* then* some hidden grief thou may'st not tell I Let not thv henrt forsake thee; but remember His pitying eye, who tees and knows It well, Uod knows it all! And art thou tossed on billow* of temptation, And would do good, but evil oft prevails j O think amid the waves of tribulation When earthly hopes and earthly refuge fails? Uod know j It all! And dost thou sin, thy deed of shame concealing In some dark spot no human eye can tee Then walk ia pride, without one sigh revealing The deep remorse that should disquiet thee! Cod knows it all ! Art thou oppressed and poor, and heavy hearted. The heavens above thee in thick cloud* arrayed. And well nigh crushed ; no earthly thought im parted, No friendly voice to sav, ''Be not afraid !" God knows it all Art thou a monrner. are thy tear drops flowing For one too earlv lost to earth and thee ? The depths of jfrief no human spirit knowing. Which moan in secret, like the moaning sea 7 God knows it all! m Dost thou look back upon a life of sinning ? Forward, and lren.?>le for thv future lot ? There's One who set-*. the end from the beginning Thv fear of penitence is unforgot? Uod knows it all: The? jfo to God Pouront yoar hearts before ilim. There is no grief your Father cannot feel; And let your graceful songs of praise adore Him? To save, forgive, and every wound to heal, God knows it all! LOVB, (iAKTKR9 AM> SaCSAGB*.?About >i 1 undri d year* ng j n young lady of Amster dam. named Wilhelminn Terschcling. was ri ding on horseback through the village of B>x laeer. when her horse became frightened and ran away with her. The young man who ac companied her. and to whom *he was betrothed, cried out that he would give a hundred ducats to any one who would stop the horso. The young villagers who were playing ball upon the green near by. seeing a wom;m in danger, threw themselves before the furious animal. One of them was thrown down and wounded, two others received contusions; the burse fell, and the beautiful Wilhelmina was Tolled in the dust. A young man who was passing, immediately threw his cloak over the lady before any ore else had time to perceive a finely turned leg and a pretty garter. Mademoiselle Terschtliug, on being carried home, had time to reflcct; and the result of Lcr reflections wae that there never must be two men in th?. world who had seen her garter, fche ?ont for her betrothed and said, "Will you kill the man who threw hid cloak over ine?" ??Who.I? What an enormity !"' "I thought vou would refnse. Then I.-hull marry him. When my life was in danger vou offered one hundred ducat* to save icr. Thij is the price you set upon my hand. Hero arc twenty five nuudred. Vou have made a good bargain." She then sent for the stranger. "M>n?icur," f;iid bhe, "I am rich and young, and (.-he blushed prodigiously while adding one of these hypocritical phrases by whioh woin?*n speak of their beauty) I am not considered repulsive. I wi.-h to marry immediately. I see that you ? re surprised. I have sent for you because you have seen my garter. You have rendered me ? great ccrvi'-e, Monsieur. Without you ?!1 the young men of Boxmeer would hay? *een it, and as I could not have married them all I should have killed myself. But if you are not free, or I am not so happy as to please you. I shall give my hand and my fortune to the mun who will kill you. l>o you accept' jes or no?'' ??Yes: a thousand times yes! a hundred thousand times yes!" The marriage took place, and wa<? like ul! ?ether marriages probably; we hnvc no partic ulars on the fcubject. All the young men of Boxmeer were invited to the nuptials, and sumptuously feasted At hear death, which took place in the course of time, the following codicil was found to her will: '?My farm, situated on the borders of the M^use, will remain forever, whoever may be the proprietor of it, subject to the following conditions. Every year, under penalty of for feiture, en the thirteenth of May, tables shall be prepared, and a tun of strong beer, anu twenty ells of the best sausages in Rotterdam, shall oe served to the young men of Boxincer. a* a token of gratitude that they sared my life, and of rejoicing that they did not see my garter ou the 13th of May. 1T50.*' Until the present time, that is, during it hundred years, the wishes of the testatrix have been punctiliou.-ly executed But th?? present heir, on the 13thof last May, attempt ed to elude them.

Dr. C. M. Jatkm, Philadelphia?pftr Sir: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst form, for the last five years. Such was mv condi tion for twelve months that the physicians and :i!i who saw me said I must die. wh.ie iu this con dition 1 was carried to the watering places in Vir ginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina, but was not bent-lilted by any water to which 1 was taken, n hile on my way home I stopp<-d a week at K uth erfordton, a small village in North Carolina, to try the effect of soine Chalybeate water iu that place. About the last of the week I went Into a drutr store to get some medicine for my child arid myself. There were several of the village physi cians iu the store, and one of them seemed to take some interest in my case, and. after a>king me some questions, said he had been a dyspeptic and had been greatly Iw-neiitted by the use of HOOF LAND'S GERMAN BITTERS, prej^re,! i,v vou. and he insisted that I would try the Bitters, lie also called the next day at mv room, and in sisted so much that I would try them that I asked him to get me one bottle. He did it, ami I com menced taking it as directed, and I was more lx*n etitled by it than all the water and medicine I hail ever taken. After reaching home one of mv neighbor* came to me for a prescription and medicine, (he a dys peptic.) and 1 gave him nearly all the Bitters I had left, which effected much good in his case. He has often called on me f<,r more of the same ki?d of medicine, saying he was more benefitted by it than any other he had taken, lint I have not l>ecn able to get any more for hi in or myself since ? will you, therefore, please ship me a d >zen or more as soon as possible. Respectfully, yours, \V. SMI Til. D. R. HOOKER, Roger's Store, Wake Co .
