EVENING STAR THE FLO WEES' PXTITIOH. We flowers and shrubs in cities pent, Froot fields and country places rent, (\V ithoutour own or friends' consent;) In desperate condition, Vet on no wilfnl outrage bent, l>o humbly here petition. "Whereas, against our silent Wilis; With loss of sun and purling rills, Cooned up in p<?ts, on window tills, In rickety old boxes? The city's breath our beauty kills, And makes us gray as foxes. Condemned in walls of brick and lime, In narrow beds of clay and slime, To ope our buds and shed our prime? We need some kind defender; We pray, oh, let us live our time, As we are very tender .' Oh, cheat us not of Heaven's dews, IVor air (however stale) refuse; God knows 'tis little we can use, So choked are all our vitals, No slightest care will we abuse; Nor fail in fond requitals. We'll breathe our delicate perfumes: We'll glad your eyes with choicest blooms; But do not shut us up in rooms, Or stifliug crowuwl places? The ?ky. in clouds and light, assumes To us far lovelier faces. Our sooty and bedraggled fate, (Our evergreens turn chocolate,) Do we ascribe to spite or hate ? No: we are sure you love us; Yet, half ashamed, We beg to state We love the sun above us. Then treat us in your gentlest ways, And next unto the sun's own rays, With beauty's homage, incense-praise, We ever will caress you, And to the ending of our days In grateful silence bless you. rFA French officer, serving before Scbag ?opol, teils the following story in a private letter to a friend in Paris. It shows that Ruf fian soldiers are not deficient in humor: " We often see a white flag hoisted to the top of a pole, and hear the trumpet sound in the Rus sian ambuscades. This of course means 4 flag uf truce.' At "nee the fire ceases, and a vast jiumber of heads are seen to pop up from un der the earth to the open air. The Russians hold up to the French Dottles and glasses, as if they invited them to drink each other's health. The bearer of the flag of truce advances on horseback, stops at about one hundred paces fn>m our trenches, whilo the nearest French officer goes forward to receive the dispatches. I yesterday witnessed a meeting of tne kind. The parlemcntaire courteously took his glove from his right hand and shook that of a cap tain of chasseur* who had gone out to meet him. The jhirlemeutairc retires, the white flag is pulled down, and the murderous din recommences as before." Mr. William King, of Augusta, Ga., on a wager, undertook to break forty-five bottles cut of fifty?to be thrown up at the distance of ten yards, lie broke forty out of fifty-two? the latter tw > were hit but not broken. This wager was ihot in fifty-six minutes time, wash ing out his gun three times during that period. He afterwards wagered to break ten out of fifteen bottles, at the distance of twenty yards, the bottles to be thrown ten to twelve feet ir? the air. lie broke ten out of twelve. At Sandusky, Ohio, a cotton rag satu rated with oil, was left on a p?. w of the Pres byterian church there, and tne next day the rag was found in ushes and the pew burning. By way oi experiment, another rag saturated with oil was placed thero and in three hours became too hot to be handled. MOVEMENTS OF OCEAN STEAMERS. Kamt. Leaven For Day.

Dr C. M. Jackso*. Philadelphia?Dear Sir: I have lwt-n n subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst form, for the last 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 ditio)! I was carried lo the watering places in Vir ginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina, but was not l>eneliited by any water to which 1 was taken. While on my way home I stopped a week at R utli erfonlton, a small village in North Carolina, lo try the effect of some Chalybeate water in that place. About the ^ast of the week 1 went into a drug store to get some medicine for my child and myself. There wen; several of the village physi cians in the store, and one of them seemed to take some interest in mv case, and, after asking me some questions, said he h;td been a dyspeptic and had been greatly benefitted by the use of 11 OOF LAN DS GERMAN BITTERS, prepared by vou. and he insisted that I would try the Bitters. He also callcd the next day at ray room, and in sist) d so much that 1 would try them that I asked him to get me one bottle. He did It, and I coiu menced taking it as directed, and 1 was more ben efitted by it than all the water and medicine i had ever taken After reaching home one of mv neighV.rs came to me for a prescription and medicine, (he a dys peptic.) and I gave him nearly all the Bitters 1 had left, which effected much good in his case.
