EVENING STAR!. BOlfO A maid inclined bealde a stream, At Ml of nummer da v. And half awake and half a dream She, watched the ripple* play; ?hf marked the water* fill and heave, The deepening shadows throng. And heard, a* darkened down the eve, The river a babbling song. And thua ltsaa*wiih tickling tongue, The rippling shadowy river "Youth a br.*hte-t day will fad/away Forever and forever f" The twilight past, the moon at last Rose boldly o'er the night, Each ripple fleams beneath her beams As wrought in allver bright The heaving waters glide along, But mingling with their voice, The nightingale now pours his song And makes the shades rejoice, And thus he sang with tuneful voice. That bird beside the river? 1 When youth Is gone true love shines on Forever and forever !" Sacrifice of Human Life?Horror* of War. A correspondent of the London Tiineb, wri ting from Constantinople, on th<; 25th of Jane, makes the following estimate of the lt>ss of life in tiie wars of the French Republic, c<>mptr ing the number with thoae that have perished in the present Crimoan war The writer say The prr^rttN ol' science and civilization does n?* seein to have rendered warier bloody th.ui of yore, or even to have diminished the ton tingent lorsesby exposure and dise*se. When it is stated that in the wars of the French lie public and Empire 8,000,000 of meu were lost %o Europe, the first feeling is one of increduli ty; but if w? may judge by the events of the past 18 months, the present struggle is destined to exceed all that have gone before in the wide-spread destruction which it w ill caase. From an authority which there is every reason to trust. I learn that the Turkish Empire has lost 130,000 men since the declaration of war in the autumn of 185& The French have since their arrival in the East lost 70,000 dead or in valided. while the British have suffered t?< the extent of 28.000 Although Austria has not been at war. yet her oc upation of the Pro\ incesand the forma tion of immense ramp.-, which are always more ?>r less unhealthy, have cost her no slfgnt dim inution ?>f force But putting aside the neutral Powers, the Allies?Freuch, British and Turk* ?appear to have lost about 230,000, but there is rca-on to believe that this calculation is be low tbe truth Taking into account the mor tality on board the ship* of war and transport.-. ?nd among the laborers of different kinds ar taohed to the armies, of whom there are r>me thousand: in the Crimea, it may be assumed that from .SOO.OOO to 600.000 men nave per it-bed or become invalided since the couimencement of the ?ar. And yet it cannot be said that there have been many bl?x>dv battles, or in deed any fighting on the scale of the gigantic contents whi'-h marked the wars of the FA-uch Empire. When operations are conductedon a larger field, we must expect still greater losses, and be prepared for supplying re-inforceuieu*s in greater number*. anJ with greater regular ity than ha- as yet been thought necessary. Desptrate ArrRAY w ith Chixame* inLox IX)*-?Thfee Chinamen have been arrested in London. charged with attempting to murder Teh Kwei, or Tuck Gny. a Chinese juggler, and his w?:e, and the former of whom is so badly injured that he is not expected to recover Tuck Gay is reported to have realized a Land some fortune by his performances, and when he was taken to the London Hospital he woio a belt round his waist containing upwards ?>f JL2>*0 in gold. Eight CNnaraen; including the three prison ers. nad gone to his house late one night, and demanded money, but finding they oould get core, they attacked him and cu' him with their knifes, and afterwsrds attacked hi* wile in a similar manner. They then ran away, but not before ?>ne of them was severely wounded. When before the police conrt. each of the three pri?oner? made statement*, but they did not agree as to the rcasun which had induced them to visit Teh Kwei's 1-^lgings. One said he went to ?moke opium and dnnk another said be went to look on, and the third that Keh Kwei had promised hini money, and when he ^ent fo* it. Teh Kwie struek him and stabbed him on the thigh. One version of .the origin of this murderous affray is. that the prisoners and their five com paaions weie charged by Teh Keh Kwei with the abduction of a girl, about 13 or 14 years of age. whom he had brought from China, and woo acted as a servant to him and his wife, and ?'slavey" a? the girl was termed, he was about to procced to Canton in the ship salacia, and had just paid ?120 passage money MOVEMENTS OF OCEAN STEAMERS.
