EVENING STAR. (From the Kentucky Stateeman. THE OLD MILL. ir WILLI A* W. HlRMT. Lire and die: live and die; And ail the weary y??rs tone by. And tho eiraint old mill stand* "till: The unmixed shade.hke a spotted snake. Lie* half concealed in the bushy brake. And ba!f across the rill. The summer ooinss. and the winter com**, And the flower Wooms. and the striped bee huiu*. And the old mill stands in the sun; The iicheu hangs from the walls aloof. And the rusty nails from the ragged roof Drop daily one by one. The long grass grows in the shady pool Where the cattle used to come to cool. And the rotting wheel stands still; The gray owl winks in the granary loft. And the aly rat slinks, with a pit-pat soft. From the hopper of the quaint old mill. The mill wheel e'lcked and the mill-wheel clacked. And the groaning groves one* creaked and crasked And the children came and played : The laiv team in the days of yore Munched their fodder at the old mill door; Or d'owsed in its grateful shade. But the food wife died, and the miller died. And the children all went far and wide. From the playground by the dam: Their marble rmi is grass o'er grown. As is the moss> T>?ot of the rough grave aton? Where the old folks sleep so calin. Hut the miller's son in the city thick. Dreams that he hears the eld mill click. And sees the wneei go round ; And the miller's daughter, thro' her half shut eyes. Can see her father in bis dusty guise. And the place where the corn was ground. 44 A Rat ! Dead for a Dvcat."?An amusing scene occurred at the American Theatre on Friday evening. The curtain had just descended after the third act of Richelieu, when a venerable old rat, that had witnessed the performance from some quiet retreat, camo boldly out. and af.e. trot ting leisurely around the front row of the dress circle, he llnaUv took refuge beneath a roll of '* < rinolinc,' expanded a In mod-',. A gentleman wbo sat near by saw the unde*mining rogue, and being rather fond of a practical joke, he coolly in formed the ladv that a horrid lat wan shelterin" himself at her feet. With an indescribable look of horror and confusion, she sprang up, shook I he f-amewo'k of her drc ami vacating the seat she had occupied, rushed frantically into the .second tow. demolishing two or three gentlemen's hats a.s she settled, causing a hearty laugh from those who were near enough to see what was transpir iug, and those who did not know what was up, laughed from sympathy. The laugh wasgene-al throughout the house. It was the first time that a rat was ever introduced as a feature in the play of Rich?lieu. A wicked wag.whosaw the affair, remarked that the rat. seeing the hoops, had pro bably mistaken the ladv for a barrel of com meal, and pitched in.?Attn Cnlifomitin. Nkw Hamfshikf.? iov.

ITT" Office No. 31 Maiden Lane, Albany, N. Y. let) 14?ly THE GREATEST MEDICAL DISCOVERY OF THE AGE. Mr. Kenxkdy. of Roxbury, has discovered in one of our common pasture weeds a remedy that cures KVEKY KIND OF HUMOR, from The worst Scrofula down to a rommon Pimple. He has tried it in over eleven hundred oases, and never failed except in two oases, both Thunder Hu mor. He lias now in his possession over one hundred certificates of its value, all within twenty miles of Boston. Two Itottles arc warranted to cure a nursing Sore Mouth. One to three bottles will cure the worst kind of Pimples on the Face. Two or three bottles will clear t he svatem of Bilea, Two bottles are warranted to cure the worst Canker in the Mouth and Stomach. Three to five l?ottle? are warranted to cure the worat kind of Erysipelas. One or two tx>ttlus are warranted to cure all Hu mor in the Eyes. Two bottles are warranted to cure Running of the Ears and Blotches among the flair. Four to six iiottles are warranted to cure oorrupt and running Ulcere. One Isittle will cure Scaly Eruption* of the Skin. T*-o or three Iiottles ?re wartanted to cure the worst kind of Ringworm. Two or three bottles are warranted to cure the most most desperate case of Rheumatism. Three to four bottlee are warranted to cure Salt rheum. _ Five to eight bottles will cure the worst aase of Scrofula. A benefit is always experienced from the first bot tle, and a perfect oure is warranted when the above quantity is taken. Nothing looks so improlsthle to those who have in vain tried a! 1 the wonderful medicinea of the day, as that a ootnmon weed growing on the pastures.'and along old stone walls, should cure every humor iu the system ; >ct it is a fixed fact. If you Iinve a humor, it has to start. There are no IFSnor ANDS. hums nor lia's alsiut it euiting some cases, butlnot yours. 'I peddled over a thousand Uittles of it in the vicinity of Boston. 1 know the effects of it in every case. It has already done some of the greatest cures ever done in Massachusetts. 1 gave it to children a year old, to old people of sixty. I have seen poor. j>uny, wormy-looking children, whose flesh was sort and flal'by, restored to a perfect etate of health by one 1 ottle. To thoee who are eubjeot to a eick headache, one bottle will always cure it. It gives great relwf in catarrh aud dizxiness. Some who have taken it had been costive for.years, and have been regulated by it. >> here the Ixtdv is sound it Works quite easy, but where there is any derangement of the functions of will cause very singular feelings, but *ou must not be alarmed: the* always disappear in from four days to a week. There is nevera bnd re sult from it; on the contrary, when that feeling is pone, you will feel yourself like a new person. I heard some of the most extravagant encomiums of it that ever man lieteued to. in ni* own practice I alivavs kept it strictly for hu mors?but since its introduction as a general famil* medicine, great and wonderful virtues have been found in it that I never suspected. Several casesof epileptic fits?tdivease whieh was always considered incurable, havn |?een cured bv a few botlfes. O, what a mercy if it will prove effec tual in ail cases of thnt awful malad* ? there are but few who have seen more of it fhan I have. I know of several cases of Drops*, all of them aged p<-,,pie cured l.y it. For the various diseases of the Liver, Sick; Headache, Dyspepsia, Asthma.
