EVENING STAR, A PARODY PARODIED. |?7* Some fair writer thus retaliates oil the parodist whoe* production we published some days since. Both sidea must be heard, and we give the lady a chance: Tall me, ye winged winds That round my pathway roar. Do yoa not know some spot Where bachelors come no more Some lone and pleasant dell Where no moustache is seen? Where long-eared dandies never coma Ourselves and fun between There comes a murmur from tha distant lee? A low, sad tone, which whispers " No, air-ea." Tell me. thou misty deep. Whose billows round me olay, Know'st thou some lavored spot. Some island faraway. Where weary jnrls may find A r?st from soft dough faces. And hear themselves called women. Nor likened to the graces> 9*v>n did the misty deep its answer five. By murmuring, " Aot while brandy smashes live." And thou, serenest moon. What langnagedost thou utter While gazing on the okntlkxax. Whose head is m the gutter ? fay. bast thou in thy round Gazad on some favored spot. Where kats know not the weight etf bricks. And whevn cigars are not ? Behind a cloud the inoon withdrew in woe. But ia italics answered. " Ao, no, no Tell me, my secret soul? Oh ! toll me, Hope and Faith, Is there no resting place From fops and beaux and death ? Is there no happy spot. Where woman kind are bleat Where man may never come. And where the girls may rest * Faiih. Truth and Hope?best noon to mortals given. Waved their bright wings and answered "Yes, in Heaven." fry? An improved method of bleaching straw bats is proposed, and is desciibed as far surpass ing, in efficiency and beauty of result, anv other known process. The soap is brushed off clean with a delicate brush. The hats, while yet wet, are immersed in a l?th, prepared of three-fourths of an ounce of snlpbite or hyd'osnlpbite of soda, and four to six pounds of water, and are freely handled and pressed to promote the soaking in of the lev through the interstices of the plats No barm is to be apprehended from this manipula tion, as the previous washing has renderca the straw pliable, and without danger of fracture. The hats are then removed from the lev, and three-fourths of an ounce of muriatic acid of commerce being added and well stirred into this ley, the hat* are quickly replunged in it. To se cure a uniform action of the acid upon the ley which is in the hats, particular care must be ta ken that the bats be submerged at orice. and kept in this situation. In order to prevent the escape of the liberated sulphurous acid gas, the vessel employed is, after the second immersion, kept closed, until the operation be completed; this takes place in about thirty minutes, more or less, according to the darkness of the straws. When sufficiently acted on bv the gas, the hats are re moved, washed clean in pure water, dried, and finished as usual. ?K * * N K W c A K T K R . -f*|*aki Ug Of the_Abi?gtoo \ irginian. savs it is one of profitable crops that can now be raised Southwestern \ irglnia. and those who under ?tojjd its culture, say that the soil out there. and Particularly the sides ofthe river hills, isadmira Bnt t$W i1 ^ ?n Wedl**day la**, Mr. R. wa. , , a,h'"^on co,,ntv.

He has tried it in over eleven hnndred oaaes. and never failed except in two oases, both Thunder Hu mor, He has now in his possession over one hundred certificates of its value, all within twenty milea of Boston. .Two bottles are warranted to core a nursing Sore Mouth. One to three bottles will cure the worst kind of Pimples on the Face. * Twoor three bottles will eloar the system of fli1*e. Two bottles are warranted to cure tt>e worst Canker in the Month and Stomaoh. Three to five bottles are warranted to cmrs tha Worst kind of Erysipelas.

Five to eight bottles will oure the worat oaaa of Sorofu 1ft, A benefit is always experienced from the first bot tle, and a perfect cure is warranted when the above quantity is taken. Nothing looks so improbable to thoee who have in vain tried all the wonderful medicines of tha day. aa that a common weed growing on the pastures, and along old stone walls, should cure ever* humorinthe system ; yet it is a fixed fact. If you nave a humor, it has to start. There are no IFS nor AN'DS, hums nor ha's about it suiting some cases, butlnot jou/-a. I peddled over a thousand bottles of it in tbe vicinity of Boston. I know the effects of it in every oaaa. It has already done some of the greatest cures ever done in .Massachusetts. I gave it to children a year oid,jo cud people of sixty. I have seen poor, puny, wormy-looking children, whose tlesh wns sort ami flabby, restored to a perfect state of health by one l ottle. To those who are suhieot to a sick headache, one bottle will always oure it. It gives great relief in oatarrh and dianness. Some who have taken it had !>een costive for years, and have been regulated by it. Where the body 1a aound it worse quite easy, but whore there is an) derangement of the funotiona of nature.it will oanae very singular fee.ings, but veu must not be alarmed; they always disappear in from four days to a week. There is never a Lad re sult from it; on the contrary, when that feeling is gone, yon will feel yourself like a new person. I heard somo of the most extravagant encomiums of it that ever man listened to. In inv owu practice I always kept it striotly for hu mors?but sinoe its introduction as a general family m??diciiief great and wonderful virtuea have been found in it that I never suspected. Several casesof epileptic fits?a disease which waa always considered incurable, have been cured by a few bottles. O, what a meroy if it will prove effec tual in all cases of that awful malady?there ara but few who have aeon rnoca of it than I have. 1 know of several cases of Dropsy, all of them aged | people oured by it.
