EVENING STAB. ("From the Philadelphia Sunday Mercury ] TO XT FELLER CITIZENS. 0!f LICK** 1ITSIIII'. I sang about the "Skwlrt" lately In stravnes that tuck; And now I tewn my harp To uther subjecs. The greatest evil of the day Is drfnkin' licker ; And 1 rayse my warnin' voice To all ray feller citizens, To warn them of their danger. There's hardly e young feller About this town out loves To take a soshel horn, and Sometime* too, thev get upon a bust And break things all to smashes. Now doin' so is what I want to make 'em Quit, For jest as shure as tney j Keep on, they'll waist tnelr Time and rnunny, and prehapa Injur their helth. Thar's an old feller Reals about the strete* Most evry day, that cusses Dr- tie, and its licker Makes him do it. Now ef You don't intend to do as he does, You mast quit coin' to The grocerysand imbybin', Or you may get to be like him. "A HIGH OLD FOURTH OF JtLT."?The Alba. ?y Knickerbocker says: "Anong the gentlemen who went In for a 'high oi?l Fourth of July,' was a man by tho name of Snyder, of Sohcnectady. Mr. 8. left home for Albany with a new suit of clothes and forty dollars in money. He returned with no money at all, and a pair of nine-shilling breecncs. which ?>iiic body got him to put on to 'run a race with;' Mr. 8. being, as his friend alleged, 'too heavy for speed' with his own pantaloon*. Mr. S. says ue docs not care for bis money, but he should very much like to see theui trousers again'?cause why, in Ike right-hand pooket is a letter from his 'Betsy Ann.' which he would not lose for a 'world of gold framed in with alabaster.' " Many years ago. not far off. a certain justice war* called to jail to liberate a worth less debtor, by receiving his oath that he was not worth five dollars. 44 Well, Johnny," said the Justice, as he entered, " can you swear that you are not worth five dollars, and never will be ?*' " Why,'" answered the other, rather chn grinnod at the question, '? lean swear that I am not worth that sum at present." " Well, well." returned the justice, "I can swear to the rest?so step forward Johnny." Maryland Harvest?Our exchanges in the counties continue to bring us favorable re ports concerning the crops. The Howard Ga xettte states that harvesting is nearly over in that county and adds: "The harvest home' is more abundant than has been known for years past." Tbo Annapolis Republican gives in three line?. the ?'harvest nearly completed" in that cour .y, and the promise ofa "fineyield." r^' One of the curiosities to be sent from 1'r.igue to the Paris Exhibition is a mite of jewelry, consisting of 1?,000 garnets, which vary iu dimensions from the smallest site to suoh larger ones as are to longer to be met with in the trade. Added to the garnets are 6.000 other stones, and the workmanship is said to be as exquisite as unique. . & A beautiful thought this which we find in one of our exchanges : " If there is a man who can eat his bread in feaco with God and man, it is the man who as brought that bread out of the earth. It is cankered by no fraud, it is wet by no tears, it is stained by no blood. Gbxkral Shields a Farmer.?Qcn. Shields pays iu a late litter to a friend, whioh we have been permitted to see, that he is farming a settlement about fifty miles from St. Paul, oa the highway to St. Peters, where he expect? *>oon to have one of the best settlements in the territory.?Chicago Frets, July 4. , The uniform of the colored soldiers of Liberia, as prescribed by President Robert.-, must make a spleudid show in contrast with ebony. It is yellow leather gaiters, from the ankle to the knee; red cloth pantaloons down to the gaiters; iron-gray cloth short ooats, with' Ted facings ; blue cloth waistcoat*, and red felt caps with blue strings. JjPAn Irishman who had been fined sever al weeks in euccesaion for getting drunk, cool ly proposed to the judge that he should take him by the year at a reduced rate. MOVEMENTS OF OCEAS STEAMERS.

Dr. C.M. Jackson, Philadelphia?Dear Sir: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst form, for the last live years. Sueh was my condi tion for twelve months that the physicians and ail who saw me said 1 must die. Wnile in this con dition 1 was carried to the watering places in Vir ginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina, but was not l>enefitted l>y any water to which 1 was taken. While on my way home I stopped a week at Ruth erfordton, a small village in North Carolina, to try the effect of some Chalyheate water in that Slace. Alwut the last of the week I went into a rug store to get some medicine for mv 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 me some questions, said he had been a dyspeptic and had been greatly benefitted by the use of HOOF 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 I would try them that I asked him to get me one bottle. He did It, and I com menced taking it as directed, and 1 was more ben efitted by it tnan ail the water and medicine 1 had ever taken. After reaching home one of mv neighbors came to rne for a prescription and medicine, (he a dys peptic,) and I gave him nearly all the Bitters I nad left, which effected much good in his case. He has often called on me for more of the same kind of medicine, saying he was more benefitted by it than any other he had taken, but I have not been able to get any more for him or myself since; will you, therefore, please ship roe a dozen or more as soon as possible. Respectfully, yours, W. SMITH. D. R. HOOKER, Roger's Store, Wake Co., N. C., October 24, 1853, savs: "Having experienced very great benefit from the use of HOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS in Chronic Dysentery and functional derangement of the Liver, and its'concomitant evils. I ain desirous of obtaining a quantity of it for the benefit of my community. \ou will, therefore, please send a lot, &c., Ate. CERTIFICATE OF WM. J. ATWOOD. Hixtsvillk, Yadkin Co.. N. C. ) November 1st, 1855. J Dr. C. M. Jackson?Dear Sir: Allow me to ex press to you my sincere thanks for your discovery of a medicine which, to say the least of it, has ef fected a cure that all other medicines, that I have taken, have entirely failed to do. HOOFI,AND'S GERMAN BITTfcRS have cured me of the most stubborn and aggravated case of the tilbs that, perhaps, ever fell to the lot of man. My case is not a stranger in this community, as I am well known In this and the surrounding counties, and can truly say that my recovery has astounded all my friends and relations, as 1 had tried everything recommended, and nothing did rne any good un til 1 was prevailed upon to try the Bitters. You are at liberty to make any use of this communica tion for Ibe benefit of the afflicted, you may think proper. Truly, yours, WM. J. ATWOOD.
