EVENING STAR. TO NELLIE. ?T HUT. Oh, yes ' I 've drank the nectar sweet From thou j deir Hps of thine; I've gtzed Into thy earnest eyes, Ana longed to call thee m'ne I 've watched thy form as thro' the dance It flitted past my eyes, And followed thee from erowd*d hall, And watched beaeath the skies I've gaznl upon the starry realm With wcnder and delight; And there, amid the bright"1 orbs, Thy form would greet my sight And oh ! may I not call tbse mine, Though poor my ofiTrlng be:? 1 '11 love thee till my spirit seeks A bl:st eternity. I'll love the# through the changing scene* That crowd life's narrow path, And brave the storms of fortune's Ills Through vengeful fire and wrath. . -Yes ' love thee when the sun awakes To shed a broad his light;? W hen clouds seem fringed with molten gold When twilight turns to night. ' And by the moon's pure silver ray I'll male this solemn vow : That though the world may laugh and scorn I'll be then true as new. Gambling hi BRKADSTcrrs.?The New York papers are complaining that time speculations in produce have become a serious evil, and have been pushed to a greater extent within the past six months than ever before. A bad principle, declared to be unbinding at the Board of the Stock Exchange by the Legisla ture, has been carried into the market for pro duce, where it is recognised by law, and made obligatory upon contractors. A party sells, by sample, 80,000 bushels cf yellow corn, de liverable in the last week of April, and oth ers do the same thing. A fight is then carried on in stocks. One party tries to depress prices eo as to gain a margin ; while the other, from similar motive*, struggles to keep them up. W hen the corn is tendered, its quality may be objected to, and thus leads to vexatious dii putes The market, In the meantime, beoomes unsettled. There are often two prices in the market. First, those established by the legiti mate laws of supply and demand, and those m*de by the contract system. The same time sales, also, pervade the provision market, and prices are influenced in preciselya similar way. Just before the maturity of large contracts known to be outstanding, there are struggles to get up a "corner," just as in stocks, and prices become excited and generally advanced. After the contracts are settled, either by the delivery of the produce or by paying the dif ferences, prices again become Fettled. The Book Trade?The Spring business opens tardily in books, as well as other de partments. Railroads are blocked up with enow, harbors frozen over, and country roads almost impassible, have proved serious obsta cles to trade It may be said to be fairly opened in New York and Philadelphia now, however, and a fair Spring business is antici pated. Publishers are turning their attention more to standard works The novels and books of light reading published this winter have proved less successful than in late years, and it is difficult now to get a publisher to look at a manuscript of this character The public are variable in taste. " Uncle Tout s Cdbin inaugurated an ?rain the basi ness which seems drawing to a close. ?? Do mestic Tales" are beginning to be at a dis count. The book?ellers scattered through the country, who had standing orders for six, twelve, twenty five or more copies, of every n^w dollar-and-a-quarter book, are diminish ing or entirely withdraw their orders. What fhall we have next ? Shall it be biography, history, poetry, or esays 7 or will some bril liant genius among the authors strike out a new path'?Am. Publisher** Gazette, 22d. A carpenter in Chelsea got so "con fused on spiced Jamaica,' the other dav,that he nut a handle into an old cheese, and used it for a grindstone.

Prof. Wood's Hair Restorative WILL RESTORE OR AY HAIR TO ORI glnal color permanently; made to grow up on bald heads; remove all dandruff or itching; destroy all diseases of the scalp; and if used onre or twlre a week regularly, will prevent the hair from becoming gray or falling, to an imaginable age Read the following testimonials, and we defy you to doubt, (?ays the Waverlv Magazine.) Success to the genius whose tonic we ray, Turns back to Its color the Hair thai was gray. SOMETHING WO RTH KNOWING'.?By using Professor Wood's Hair Restorative, gray hair can be permanently restored to Its original color. The subjoined certificate was received from Johnson A Stone, Gardner. Me , and Is but one of the many instances that are daily coming to our knowledge of Its wonderful effects. It is no longer problematical, but a self-evident truth, as hundreds of our community can testify.?But ton Herald. Gardnkb, Me, June 22, 1852. Ma. II. Dyes?Dear Sir: I have used two bot tles of Prof. Wood's Hair Restorative, and ran truly say it is the greatest discovery of the age for restoring and changing the Hair. Before using it 1 was a man of seventy. My hair has now at tained its original eolor. You can recommend It to the world without the least fear, as my case was one of the worst kind Yours respectfully, DAN'L N. MURPHY Carltlk. 111., June27. 1853. I have used Prof O J. Wood's Hair Restore tlve, and have admired Its wonderful effect. My hair was becoming, as 1 thought, prematurely gray; but by the use of the l> Restorative" It has resumed It* original color, and. I have no doubt, permanently so. SIDNEY BREESE, Ex-Senator United States. HA TR RES TO RATIVE.?In our columns to day will be found Prof. Wood's advertisement of the above article, to which we call attention. What It has done, we have witnessed upon sev eral of oar acquaintances In St. Louts. Malr once gray met our view, black or brown as the case might be, being the color of early manhood; and as fine and glossy as silk, and that without any other application than the Restorative. If it has done this upon others, will it not do the same for any of our readers whose "frosty prows" were once like the 1 ? raven locks" of Lothlel's warlike chief, if they will try It. We think so.?Jackson vUlt Constitutional, Oct. 5, 1853. THE GREATEST DISCOVERY OF THE AGE.?It seldom occurs that we notice, under any circumstances, patent medicines, restora lives, or anything of the kind, for we have a pre judice against roost of them. But candor com pels us to invite attention to the advertisement rf Professor Wood's Hair Restorative. We are too juvenile to require anything of the kind, butnome Instances of Its use have come to our knowledge which almost assures us that It is a sovereign remedy against the hair becoming prematurely gray. It Is not a '? Hair live," but upon its ap plication, as directed, the effect Is produced upon the skin, which brings ont the original colored hair, without stiffness, and gives it a glossy and natural appearance. We have seen persons who have used it. and are much pleased with it I- x amlne theadyertisement ?Missourt Republican. O. 1.
