EVENING STAR. THE S05G OF SPRING. BY KLIZA LOOAX. In th9 gr,,v?* "here Iho orange and citron are bloom A?l scenting with perlume the balm-breathing nr. ardfut relation, lhine Summer's assuming tasks which, unfinished, I left to her care. Ml ar The A* my licht step la liounding o'er valley and mead, The harebell and daisy peep up from the aod; For they fael that I Iwir delicate bosoms are freed From the earth, which 1 loose with my magical rod. I breathe in the forest?it's life I renew? The Wood of the oak rushes up thro' its veins ; And the rose it puts on bears the very same hue As that which 1 lavishly spread o'er the plains. It" voice to the tee-fettered brook 1 restore. And send its freed waters rejoicing alone ; The crave, late so silent, is tuneless no more. For I've taught every feather-dad warbler a song. Tho' hnef be inj life, yet, unlike fragile mortals, Decay to my heart no destruction ?n bring. Ere a Koweret rnn bud. 1 throw open death's portals, Ami start from the tomb?a new glorious Spriuq. Pork Fattbxkp Hlma* Bodies.?Let any person, says a writer >r? a late Ceylon paper, at day ilreak start front the gate of the Government House. Calcutta, and whether his walk be on the bank of the river, or on the t**nks of the canals, which on three sides tafmnd the city, he will *ee pigs feeding on the d?s4 hwlicsof the natives that have been thrown there dinner the night.du xini( the day the river police clear away and sink all that remains of the bodies. Part as is the me tropolis of India, it is nothing compared to Patna. Hundreds upon hundreds of human etMjj-^es are there strewed along the strand: and rattening Ghoule-like. upon these, are droves upeat droves of swine The swine are slaughtered, cirt unand salted Into ham*, bacon and pickle pork.anathen dispatched to Calcutta The great market for this poisonous swine produce is the Mauritius aad Bourbon, where it is foisted on the inhabitants as the produce of Europe. Moreover, as the swine are sold in Calcutta at three or four shillings each carcass, it is stated that the inferior class of home Ward bound vessels are provisioned with them, and thus the human fed pork is Intrudutd into Europe and America. [iJ" The Senate of Massachusetts has rejected thellouse bill to allow atheists to testify in the courts of that State. !ET The North Carolina Fisheries .like those on the Potomac, have been doing a very poor busi ness this season, and herring are selling on the beach at s*7.5?> per thousand. The supply is said to be not half equal to the home demand" OcTliOBw.?Eveline Elmore, a tteautiful dan seuse in a New Orleans Theatre, was returning to her residence late Thursday evening of last week, when she was seized by three rutlians. who car ried her into a dark alley way, gagged and pin ioned her. and there violated her person. The un fortunate girl is not expected to live. |T7""rhe Norfolk (Ya ) Argus says that at Cur rituck Sound. N. C.. the intention is to form a *-sportingcompany, "and shoot wild fowl for the New ^ orlt market. I.arge quantities were killed there last winter, brought to Norfolk in wagons and caits ami shipped hence to New York, some of them selling in that city as high as 3100 per barrel. At the Gloucester (Eng.) Assizes a Frcncli priest named Boux, lately holding a cure at Chel sea. has obtained a verdict of i.500 against Car dinal \\ iseman for obtaining possession of and withholding a document signed by the Princess Letitia Bonaparte (neice of the French Kmperor) acknowledging a ?? *acred debt" of -ia.ttitif.. and requesting her family to pay it. n~7" An ancient Finn, who sat for his portrait to Bayard Taylor in Lapland, had a curious no ting pf the d's4 overy of America, and mingled t adition and history together in a queer way He claimed to know all about America: but was not present when it wj> discovered, ??but Jenis Lam pi. who lives in Kittila. was one of the crew of the "hip, and he told me how it happened. Jenis Lauipi said they were going to throw the captain overboard, but he persuaded them to give him three days, and on the thud day they found it." Lsdiks1 Names Before and After Mar BIagk.?Ladies should have but one given name, and. when they are married, should retain their maiden name as a middle name. This is a prac tice among the Society of Friends, and, were it generally adopted, it would have many advanta ges. \\ e should know at once, on seeing a lady's i.amr. whether she was married or single; and if the former, what the name of her family was And it is further to be considered that the'adop tion of this rule of but a single first name would quite put au end to the numerous brood of Emma Mevali.idas and Euphemia Helen Lauras?a style of nomenclature not in pure taste. SELr-Ae-Tito Railrotdwitch ?Dick'sself acting switch is designed to be operated in all re spects like the ordinary one*, with the additional property of springing ' instantaneously into line, ?when, in consequence of any misunderstanding ?<r csrdeMness. a wheel approaches in the wrong direction on the main track The fore wheel of the engine bits a pin and iele?:-tx? a powerful spring, which brings the track in place. This property has Ijeen tested by running a train at the highest possible speed across, not onlvone. but all the switches in nearly a hundred miles of * track, all designedly placed Wrong Fifteen miles of the route, over three of the gaping switches, was performed in seventeen minutes. ILT A respectable but poor widow was recom mended to the attention of a fashionable, would be charitable lady, and at a benevolent meeting. I ol which the l<idy was president, the widow was ' introduced. The lady threw a hurried glance at ; *-J? and asked: ??How many children have you?" i -Three, inadante." The President turned to talk , to some of fellow members, and forgot the wait- ' lug applicant. About a quarter of an hour after- I wards she turned suddenly and a?ked: "Have you many children ?" The woman looked at her j a moment and replied: -Madame, some time ago ] 1 had the honor to inform you that 1 had three, and since that time no more have been born, to my knowledge And with a polite but indig nant bow, the woman quitted the room, leaving the lady patroness horror-stricken at her boldness. ; ARRIVALS AT THE HOTEL<S.

In again preaenting to thenotioeof the public the alwve remedy, we feel that little apology i? needed. \ ast numbers ina:l scctionaof the Union are obliged to have recourse to other sources of relief than the immediate prescription of their family physieran. and as each return of the winter season brings out a hoat of'professedl> now specifics, some good, others use less, and many decidedly dangerous, it become* aa much a matter of duty as interest, believing thia to l>e a remedy, combining the greatest advantages, with the least objections of an> other in use. to make it as extensively known as practicable. That such is its character, is abundantly proved by the fact, that it lias been extensively used the last twenty rears with unparalleled success; that its reputation has continued to spread and its sale increase, with little aid from advertising or published lists of cer tificates, (which all know can as easily be had for a worthless preparation as for a meritorious one,) thst bv its own intrinsic merit, with the recommendation of persons l>enefited by its use, it has gained ita pre sent popularity ; it la not trumpeted to the world as a specific or cure all, but as a valuable and scientific suxiliary in pulmonary cases, ready at hand, and one that has been generally found to aflord relief where most others have been tried without material benefit. As such, it is recognised by numbers ef our leading physicians, who know its composition, and have been eve witnesses of its superior efficacy, aa well as by thousands of our most respectable citizens, to most of whom reference is cheerfully permitted.

ITS EFFICACY IN CURING ^ . DYSPEPSIA. Affections of ike Liver, Dropsy, Seuralgia, Bron chitis and Consumptive Tendencies, IHtorJrr ed state of the Blood, Boils, (ieneral Debility, and all Diseatet which require a Tonic and Alterative medicine is beyond question. The proofs of its efficacy are so numeroas. so well authenticated, and of sucn peculiar character, that | sufferers cannot reasonably hesitate to receive the protfered aid. The Peruvian Syrup does not profess to be a rmre all, but its range is extensive, l*eeause many disea ses, apparently unlike, are intimately related, and, 1 proceeding from one cause, may be cured by one remedy. The elass of diseases for which the Syrup promi ses a cure, is precisely that which has so often baf fled the highest order of medical skill. The facts are tangible, the witnesses accessible,and theaafety and efficacy of the Syrup incontrovertible. Those who may wish for an opinion from disinter ested persons respecting the character of the Syrup, cannot fail to be satisfied with the followirw among numorous testimonials, in the hands of the Agents. The signatures are those of gentlemen well known in the oommumty, and of the highest respectability. CARD. The undersigned having experienced the beneficial effects of the " Peruvian Syrup,*' do not hesitate to recommend it to the attention of the publio.
