EVENING STAR. TO [roft THE STAR. Dost thou remember, years age, My arm wit round thy form, The Are vrax burning on the hrtith. And outside beat the storm * Thy mother smiled upon us the?, Warm, though 'twa* wintry weather, And wished that you and I might go Thus,on through life, together. That mother is in Heaven now, And I, an exile, driven Away from thee?oh * think you not She seee us still from Heaven. She hoped, though the storm might beat, Our bean*, had homed each other; The llrr of 1- v our souls would warm In this world, and another. A ir jth? r'? wis'u ~ 1? er's prayer? A promise ma?le with Hearen, AN u los;?w..s treated like a dream? Oh! had It ne'er been given COHSTASCT Women of Jai aj*.?As nii M bo imagined from the charnci&r of the government, woman plays no part in the history of Japan, tlscagh, allowing for oriental usages, sho is treated, cn the whole, with tolerable leniency. Sh? occu pies a better position in the family, from not en tailing any cnargo at her marriage, ad a bride receives do dowry, but. on the contrary, is 5resented by her huabaud with a hands>me onution, w i.ich is invariabiy appropriated by her lather. In Japan, therefore, it is consid ered more fortun.itc to have daughters than sons, as the former ultimately prove a very handsome investment. On the birth of a son, the event is commemorated by planting a tree. which, if the little stranger lives, is care fully ten I h1 to the day of his marriage when it is cat down, and furnishes material for a chest, designed expre*?ly to hold the wardrobe of the newly married conple. The marriage, as in China and Tartary, is an affair between the parent.*; and the wishes of the young peo ple themselves are never consulted. The bride is usually in her fifteenth year; but ma turity being early developed, wedlock maybe contracted at a gTeatdeal younger age, and the mother i?often a child herself. Marriage is a religious ccremony, and is celebrated with great and many forms, in a public tem ple, in presence of the priests and idols, and the friends' and kindred of both parties. The priest blaokens the pearly teeth of the bride, using for this purpose the same indellible li }uer applied to o >al -9outtles and other similar apan ware, and this serves, frnui that time to her death, to notify, like the ring of Europe, that she has entered the marriage state. Steeui.w b> the North Star.?A year or two since, an ebony individual, rnswering to the name (4 "Hob." (in fact no one knew whether ho had any other name,) was em ployed by a skipper to assist him in sailing a small schooner on the waters of the Chesa peake bay. Bob didn't understand, and couldn't be made to learn, the compass; so the sldpper never dared to trust him to man Rgv the craft, except during a very light night, when he could point out to him some headland to steer for. On one occasion, however, the capt?in. who had been up two nights pre viously. concluded he would trust the schooner to Bob. and take a little nap on deck , so he pointed out the north star to his jet companion, and told him to continue fleering for it until he waked up. After watching him a short time. and linding that he could keep the ves sel headed ri"ht, the skipper stretchwl himself upon the deck, and was soon asleep. Shortly afterward a squall arose from the north, and blew the craft completely away from her course. After it had cleared away somewhat. Dob looked around aud found the north star at his back lie sailed along an hour or so, do ing tie best he could, and cogiUuing over how he should get out of his difficulty. But at la?t he guve it up and shoving his slumbering master int<> wakefulness with his foot, shouted, "Cap'n' Cap'n! give me another star to steer by ; I*se g<,t clcan Ly that one."?California fioHttr. CoxjrNCTioss.?A conjunction means, liter ally. a union of meeting together. An ill sorted marriage is a comical conjunction. But onr conjunctions are used to connect words and scnUnee*. and have romething to do with the joining of hands. The Siamese twins from a singular conjunction A tin pot fastened to a dog's tail is a disagreeable conjunction to the animal. A hnppy pair may be regarded as an uncommon conjunction. Conjunction* connect similar moods and tences of verbs, and oases of nouns and pronoun;, a?: "A coat of arms suspended on a wall is like an executed traitor; it is handed, drawn and quartered." "If you continue thus to drink brandy and water, and to tmoi? cigars, you will be like Boreas, the north wind, who takes 'eold without' wherever he goes, and always 'bitxes a cloud' when it comes in hi* way."' k,I>o yoa think there is anything between him and her V "Yes; he and she are engage ones."?Comit English Grammar.

V^re^tfuUv.youg^ Rector of St. James' Parish. Dei/iirtment of Interior, May 7,1855. From natural defects and the unequal range ol my eyes, I have been compelled to use glasses for several years. I have tried different opticians without obtaining glasses perfectly fitted to my ey >s. Four months since Mr. Tonics made two pairs especially fbr 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 most cheerfjtly recommend Mr. Tobias to all occasion to useglasses, and bear my testi mony ah to his skill as an optician. HENRY E. BALDWIN, Assist. Sec'y to sign Land Warrants. i yis-tf DR. L. B.
