EVENING STAR. THTRTY-FIYE. '? The year* of man ape three score and ten Oh. weary h?art' thou'rt half way horn?, We stand on life'a meridian height; A? far from childhood's morning come, As to the grave's forgetful night. Give Youth and Hope a parting tear Look onward with a placid brow, Hope promised hut to bring us here. And Reason talcs the guidance* now ? One backward look?the last?the last One silent tear, for youth is past. Who goes with Hope and Paxsion back ? Who comes with me and memory on ? Oh ! lonely looks the downward track. music hush'd. Hope's roses gone. To Pleasure and her giddy troop Farewell. without a sign or tear; But heart gives way, and spirits droop, To think that Love may leave me here. Have we 110 charm, when youth has liown ? Midway to death, left sad and lone. But ?tav * as 'twere a twilight star That >ends its thread across the wave, I see brightening light from afar. Steal down a path beyond the grave ' And now?ble*s God?it* golden tine Comes o'er and lights my shadowy way, And shows the dear hand clasped in mine j But, list what those sweet voices say: '?The better hind's in sight, And. by its chastening light, All lore from lips midway is driven, Save her whose clasped hand Will bring thee on to Heaven !" The Mocki.ng Bird.?It is doubted by many* that the mocking bird will imitate the sounds of instruments in playing tunes or the whist ling of a man. The other evening we had most convincing proof of the ability of these wonderful bird&in this regard. A negro boy wad guilty along the street, whistling a well knowr. Ethiopian melody, and when he paused, a mocking bird, confined in a cago near by, as it emul us to surpass his sable rival, burst forth with the same tune, and whittled it with the^ finest taste and execution, throwing in, besides, little operatic quavers and trills with admirable effect. It was certainly the most brilliant musical performance in the whistling line we have ever heard, and the tones were an exact imitation of those of the human ani mal. At the conclu.-ion of the air, the bird whistled up the dogs, cackled like a hen. cawed like a crow. Ae., and when we puckered up otrr poor Mower, and ran up and down the gamut, the rara avis quite made us ashamed of ourselves by the clearness and precision rith which it improved upon the humble copy ?d " set.' ?Mobile Advertiser. we had Shall Defalcations.?On the tenth page of the printed report of the directors of the Eastern Railroad it is stated that Thomas D.
