EVENING STAR. The Knickerbocker for July has the follow ing beautiful "Eastern Allegory." His from the pea of the laiy of Mr- Sparks, the eminent American historian : THE BECOBDDTG AH0EL8. ?'Two Angels c'.ear on every 8ool attend, And watch, with patient waiting, on each hand, One with soft eve of hope, and one of fear; ,u And both, with'love intense, a golden rrcotd bear. "And when that precious soal with love doth Those'loving eyes with holy lustre shine; Then doth the right hand Angel whisper low 4 'Tls ours forever!' and with seal divine Condrm the good, for good can ne'er decay, BM. all immortal, wing to heaven its war. "Bat if Suspicion dark, or fearful Wrath, Trouble the liutrs of thone sinless eves. left hand An rcl of Mu'9 ptth In weep! ?g silence writes, and sad surpnse: But holds annealed still the golden Una, ??-? And on hh hopeful brota r leans awhile: / F<tr if that soml rtptut, the heavens shall smile, And swift that record ftsde in light dlvtes; And only Sorrow weep to leave eo fltlr a shrine." A BSAUrii UL FIGU2JS. At summer eve, when Heave*1'* etherial bow Spaa* with bright arch the glittering hills below, Why to yon mountain turns the musing eye, Whose sun-bright summit mingles with tbe sky? Why do those otifs of shadvwy tint appear Mote sweet than all the landscape smiling l_. 'Tls distance lends enchantment to the view, And robes tbe mountain in its azure hue. Thus with delight we liuger to survey The promised joy* et lifrN unmeasured way: Thus from ater, each <tlm discovered scea? More pleasing sterna thaa all the past has been, And every form that fancy can repair From dark oblivion glows divinely there. [Campbell. Ths Natcrajuzation Laws is Qrkat Brit ACT'.?CiiU^nship in Great Britan is not so difficult to be attained as might be Imagined, there id some delay and unnecessary routine to be preformed and rather heary expenses in. the way of fees to be prorided for, as in common with everything in which the English Govern ment has a finger, bet the provisions of the law regulating naturalization are on the whole very libera! In the statute 7 and 8 Victoria, e. 66, entitled "an act to nniend the laws re lating to aliens," it is directed that the appli cant must tend to the Hume Secretary a me worial, praying far the grant, and setting forth the name, age and profession of the ap plioaat, whether married or single?if any children or nolr?of what friendly State a na tive?and if he intends to continue or reside in the United Kingdom. This memorial must be substantiated Ly a affidavit of tbe petition er, and the declaration of four house-holders of good repata, affirm itory of his responsibility and loyalty. A certificate of naturalization is then issued, which untitles the person to vrhom it is granted the right to vote, hold free .iold property, and all the other immunities and privilege of a British subject, except that of a sest in the Legislature or the Privy Council. The coat of procuring this certiAeato amounts to nearly thirty dollars. Ths Latest Dodo b?The latest case of obtaining money by fal?e representation oc curred a few days since. A man in this eity advertised for a partner with a certain amount n(capit.-il. The advertisement was answered by a iuan named Jobnson, who, after several interviews and an introduction to a'i acquaint ance of th3 man who a partner?said acquaintance being very prvfase in his friend's praise for honesty and integrity?Johnson con cluded to enter into a p trtnership. As soon V the proper paptre were drawn up. John son '? partner desired two hundred dollars to purckS^e goods with it in New York. Johnson was Uf rti>e the money the next day and send it to his partner by Adams' express to a cer tain hotei in New York?he desiring to go in the evening train. The next day Johnson in company with the friend of his partner, de posited the money, properly directed, in the express office. His friend* left the same day for New York, put up at the hotel where the xaoney was sent, registered his name, and re ceivea it from the proprietor of the hotel. This was on Tuesday, since which nothing has been heard of the m>ney or the partner and his friend.?Pk*l. Ledgtr. X3* An acute, *??t severe judge, once remark ed to a jury: '-The counsel hits raid. I think this, and I believe that.' A counsel has no right to say wh?t he thinks or what he believes: but since he haa told you, gentlemen, his be* lief, I will tell you mine; that were ycu to be lieve him. and acquit his client, he would be the very first man in the world to laugh at _ ?! jOtt.

Mr. John Tobias having furnished me with Glasses, by which I have been greatly aided (my vision navlng suffered greatly from reading at night In ray earlier life) It affords me the highest pleasure to'^ty that I consider him a skillful prac tical optician, and well prepared to aid those who may need his professional services. WM. B ROUZIE, Elder of Methodist Conference. WiL3fiHOTO!f, N. C., Jan. 97, 1654. Mr. J. Tobias: Dear Sir?I am happy to say that the Spectacles which 1 obtained from you last week are entirely satisfactory. From an inequal ity in the visual range of my eyes, 1 have hereto fore found great dirti. ulty In getting glasses of the proper focal distance. It affords me pleasure to state that, by the aid of your optometer, this diffi culty has been happily obviated so that the clashes you furnished me are decidedly the beat adapted to my opes of any I have ever yet used. vByMp?ttmfeTr.feANE_ Rector of St. James' Parish. Department of Interior, May 7, IS55. From natural defects and the unequal range of my eyea, I have been compelled to use glasses for several years. I have tried different opticians without obtaining glasses perfectly fitted to my eyes. Four months since Mr. Tooias made two pairs especially for me, which I have found to serve me perfectly. By the use of his optometer he Is enabled to adapt Glasses minutely to the eye. I moot cheerfutly recommend Mr. Tobias to all having occasion to useglasses, aud bear my testi mony aa to his skill as an optician. HENRY E BALDWIN, Assist. Sec'y to sign Land Warranta. ]yl3?tf .
