EVENING STAB. Many of oar readers will remember the |M Csn.ats, ?' The Power of Song," neexeen ted by tte M asktngton Philharmonic Society la He palmy days These ere the words: THE POWER OF SOHG. A TRANSLATION FROM SCB1LLER. ST JOH!? e ?WI8HT From rocky cleft the torrent dashes, Down, down it comes with thnndsr shook, The sturdy oek benesth It crashes. And after rolla tbe loosen?d rock. Amazed, o'erjoyed with awe and wonder, The traveller atops and gazes round, Be hears the all-pervading thunder, Bat cannot tell from whence the sound. So rolls the tide of song for ever, W here mortal footbath wandered never. Leagued with the dreaded Powers above us, Who darkly SDln life's slender thread, Who can resist his power to move us ? w ho can tbe singer's spell evade ? He Hermes' magic wand Inherits, And charms ihe mind with Influence soft, Down to tbe realm of tortured spirits, Or bears It heavenward aloft, On fancy's airy ladder reeling, Swayed to and fro by giddy fueling. As when Into a scene of plessure, Some dreed disaster stilks along, With glant-Uke, unearthly measure, And scatters terror through the throng, He strips at once the gay delusion, This ?tranger fW?m tbe other world, The masks fill cff In dire confusion, Earth's greatness to the ground la hurl'd, And before tru.h's all-conquering mirror, \Y liters each work of aln and error. So every earthly burden spurning, Man's thoughts at music's bidding rise. And with immortal ardor burning, With tied like tread he walkathe skies. The gods, as one of theirs, emorace him, There must his dally troubles sleep, ?? destiny can chane him, Thltber n0 e*rt*1y tbing can creep, Pis brow Is a7'0'nh no frar alarms him. He knows no care while music charms him. And as the child with >opeleas longing, When stolen freedom ?*t, But home thoughts to his hea.1 keeptbronglng, Flies to Its Injured mrther's b^a^t; go mu>ic ha- the power to chaim uS, When turn'd to nature's simple truth. From cold and foreign ways to warm us, With the old feelings of ouryouth In nature's arms, ah ! there we rest us, Where fret zing forms can ne'er molest us. ARRIVALS AT THE PR I NCI PAL HO TELf .

That such is Its character, lsabundantly proved by the fact, that It has been extensively used the last twenty years with unparalleled sue cess: that its reputation has continued to spread and its sale Increase, with little aid from adver tising or published lists of certificates, (which all know can a? easily be bad for a worthless preparation as for a meritorious one,) that bv Its own Intrinsic merit, with the recommendat on of persons benefitted by its use, it has gained Its present popularity; It Is not trumpeted to the world as a specific or cure all, but as a valuable and scientific auxiliary in pulmonary rases ready at hand, and one that has been generally found to afford relief where most others have been tried without matcrlai benefit As such, it is recog. nlsed by numbers of our leading physicians, whe know its composition, and have been eye wit nesses of Its superior efllca v, as well as by thou sands of our most respectable citizens, to most ol whom reference Is cheerfully permitted f.s wasas: sra ."twisr8''"''' m4 *"fctl fti'UJ-JJL'8 ***** ARABIC COUQh CANDY DROPS." the same composition In a portable form, much patronised by public speak ers, singers, frequenters of public assemblies^ . as they remove all husklness from the throat an<i J"'0*' ?d act like a charm on a troublesome oough.
