EVENING STAR. The following choice piece of California po etry. with a cis Atlantic bent, wo take from the Marvsville Herald. It applies to the lat ilU'l" of Virginia, bul ls pretty anywhere : T:rE DSAP. 03E3 at home. On* of mv friends la very fair. Her lips are like fresh budling roecs j The smile that parts the ruby pair, Ferris of the purest white discloses. Her locks upon her lovely brow, Kest with a sweet fantastic lightness ; And in her eye's bewitching glow, We dream of Heaven ana all its brightness! He- vole* is like the so-g of birds, When spring puts forth her fairest dowers; Ard sweetly tl w her graceful words, As flows a brook through summer bowers. Ovfi h?r wild, angelic fare Ti.e ray of soul are ever beam! ng; And her swee' form s surpassing grace, Excels the poet's wildest dreaming. Look on her soft and siowy hard. Hem: rk <a' b straight particular finger ; And, as upon afai'v's wand, Your eye wo-ld there forever linger. JLIke 'he vmng fawn's, her tiny foot. T>uchm the earth with fairy motion; Or lik? a li'Ue wavelet, n ute, Upju the stormless breast of Ocean. Oh, for 'ome spell of magi- power, Love lamp?Aiab'.an and enchanted ; 1 o Lear me lo the gentle flower, For wuom my suul so long hath panted. Ala*! three thousand stormy miles? T hree tLou.-ajui miles of stormy water? Debar m- from the spat where smiles Virginia's f.iire?tj-farest daughter ! lit t if that eagle, which was ?een, Onre o i a time, by Bidwell's Ferry. Would 1 nd i s golden wines, 1 w*en This drooping heart would soon be merry. Oh. swifter tUan Its swiftest flight, Cl^aviiig the calm or stormy Heaven, Rega.d.css c f the day or n.'ght, iTnaiindful of the morn or even; Lik? to tie lightning's vivid flash, Kike to some wild 'hing, driven frantic, I'd fling me, at a single flash, Across the broad, storm-vtoied Atlantic! From this dark land I would awny, Ard. flying each enchanted plnidR, Swiltes the sun's descending ray, Alight withiu the Old Dominion. Rewedt for Scalds and Bcrss.?Inth-'. " American iledical Gaxette" for March. Dr. Reese thus earnestly reiterates his advieo to apply flour to scalds and barns : *? We sti.ll sec reported, almost daily, an ap palling number of deaths by burns and scalds, not one of whioh, wo take upon ourselves to pay, need prove fatal, or would do so, if a few pound.* of wheat flour could be promptly ap plied to tlK* wounds made by fire, and re peatcd un'il the inflammatory stage hal passed. We have never known a fatal case of scalding or burning in wkich this practice has been pursued, during more than thirty years experience, and having treated hun dreds in both public and private practice. We have known the most extensive burns by falling iuto cauldrons of boiliug oil, and even moulteu copper, and yet tho patients were r soucd by this simple and cheap remedy, which, from its iiifalltblo success, should sup plant all the tasliionablo nostrums, whether oil, cotton, lead water, ice, turpentine, or pain extractors, every one of which has been tried a thousand times with fatal result, and tho victim? hr.vedied in excruciating agony, when a few handfu'.s of flour would have calmed them to sieep and rescued them from paid and death. Humanity phould prompt the profer sion to publish and republish the facts on this subject, which are established by the authority o: standard medical works on both sides of the Atlantic. Flour is the remedy, and the only on i:; severe cases of scalding and burning casualties, which else so often destroy life. Let us keep it before tae people, while the ex p'.osijus of steam boilers and burning fluii lamps are so rife all over the country." AT TRIIfClPiL HOTELS.
