KVENItfG STAR. CUKE TO MT GBAVE. ?v iTiinn. Cnjne to my (crave when the reaper bell Shall echo the dying day^farewell? Ccme when younv nummer's richest bloom shed its lustre o'erWy tomb. * Come when I be gentle aiure-oyed flowers Shall t? arfully peep from their fra*>ratlt bowers, _\r.d ere the soft breeze catch their sighs of per ' fame, . ??; Oh, come, dearest, come to my lonely tomb! Cone when the pale moua i trembling rays Shall bVnd their light with the glow-worm's Mate, When the quiet stars of heaven's blue dome SWl earnestly bend from their shining home; When the zephyr shall dance thro' tfce flowery dail, And Its murmur is borne on the breeze's swell, Wh?n the low sighing winds the bright blossoms wave, Oh, then, at that hour, lo;e, come to my grave. And cnmp, love, when summer shall pass away, With i s holy night snd glorious d?y, Wh?n Autumn shall qnlckly a frost wreath twine, To silv .r the .pre v. of the rustling pine, Wfcrn bright birds mourn o'er the death of the flowers, And tyied, on bright wings, to lovelier bowers ; When, the low whistling winds my requiem shall be, Then ccine to my grave, love, and there think of ? 'me!" IjRTrVCT AXD MECHANICAL SKILL OT I* htcTS.?In a paragraph on infects, the other ?iflv. we atladeil to the wonderful instinct and mecfcai/cil ski^aith which the insect tritfes arc endowed. "Every book on entomology id fuli ofilhu*ratioo3 of These. But tbe observant BiJn and woman need* not go to books for ex amples of the wondcrfnl intelligence of in fects, nnd the curious adaptations cf means to cn is which they so often display. Every per son who has a garden, a tree, oven a shrub or two. may study entomology?may learn some thing of insect lifo and skill. Wo hare proof of this in a IHtle twig which lies before u? as we write tke9e lines. It is a little insect's summer-house; his rosewood summer-house. Externally it resombles a knot, or wart, and is of the size of a largo chestnut. It formed the extremity of a sni ill branch of a roue bush, and was arranged for the accommodation and support of a family of ten or a dosen insect children, each of which was furnished with a separate apartment, where it was supplied with tha> aap of the branch. This being accomplished, tbe surplus ?*p was suffered to pa<s through the house, to neurifh two twigs, which grew oat of the wait, and acted as drains to carry off the superflu t us liquid. On cutting open this excresccnoe a number of livu>* white maggots were found, each occupying bis separate apartment, all which apartments ran longitudinally with the branch from which they derived their sup port This little knot or wart was externally quite hsrd. as much so at loast as the wood ot tbe limb on which it grew, and formed the out ward extremity of the limb, the twigs grow ing out of it both turning; backward, towards the truuk of tho bush.? Boston Traveller. Worth Kiowisg.?Ona pound of green cop peras (eost seven cents) dissolved in one quart of water and poured down a privy, will effeo tuaily concentrate and destroy the foulest smells. For Wi?ter closets on beard ships and steamboats, about hotels and other places, there is notLing so nice to cleanse and purify these places, as simple green eopperas, dis solved; and for sick rooms, it may be placed under the bed in anything which will hold water, and thus render a hospital or other places of the sick, tree from unpleasant smells. For butjhers1 stalls, fish markets, slaughter hou?es. sinks, and wherever there are putrid and offensive gases, dissolve copperas and sprh-klc it about, and in a few days the bad smeU will ] a-? away. If a cat, rat, or mouse uies about the house, it is sure to drive away the offensive smell. A Turkish enthusiast at Constantinople lately eut off two yards of the telegraphic wire, which he brought to his house in the hope of being the first to know the news. When taken up for the offence, he admitted the fict, and said that all he wanted to learn was the tall of Sebastopol. Another Turk cut the in two in order to see if the interior was iioilow. F* A newspaper is Boon to be published in the city of Cairo, In Egypt Tbi? paper, to be frir ted in Italian, under the patronage of the soba, is as a fact certainly significant, and f ives us to understand that the light of the 'ress can even illumine that Egyptian dark ness to fabled for its deep and superior sable ne-.s. fcy An exchange gives the following as Bryant corrected : " The mWoa-choly days have come, The saddest of the year " worr:73EST3 or ocean stealers. .Va??.
