THE VIOLETS. BT HARRlgT ll'tWH KIMBALL. With ft oool, delicious sound. Silver-blue the river voun4 Dreamily through wood and wild ; At the curve a village stands. Like a little, timid ftuld; Clinging with its baby hands. While the water-pulses beat Softly round his naked feet! In a purple hare of thought. Watching where the river shone, Sweetest odors round my head By a fresher breeze were Nswn. In mj nnnd thiswise I said:? Tender perfumes haunt ttoe air ! Souls or blue forget-me-nots. Heliotropes and lilies dead ! Ghosts of last year's roses rare Thiswise said ; then, unaware. Pre?t a tuft of grass aside: Never thinking in such nests Knots of violets often hide! There they nestled : meekest flowers Ever woed by April showers. As a maiden in her bosom Will co n do si Lome's t>eauteous blossom. While sweet words and ways unbidden. Half reveal with it is hidden,4 rhus the maiden Spring doth hoW Treasures in her mantle's fold : Thus, mayhap, some wind wul tell Where the fragrant secrets hide: Push the emerald scarf aside? There the tremulous violets dwell! CncftcH Music is England.?The Rev Dr. Tyng. the " Low Church" rector of St. George's. New York, who is now travelling In Europe, gives the following account of rhoral service at St. Paul's, in London, In contrast with church music in America: 44 The Anthem." he says, "was exquisitely beautiful and effective It was impossible not to feel the power of the expression, and as the tenor solo brought out the first verse, ' The Lord is my light,' Ac., with the temlerest sweetness; and the bass solo, the final verse, ' Set my feet upon a rock of stone," it was impossible to restrain the emo tion which was produced. Never befote did I bear such music. It was commentary, and it was preaching, and both of the highest order Could we hear such music, I should rejoice to encourage it among us. But for sacred song, whether In solos or in chorus, the English are as much be yond us or any other nation as can be conceived. The afternoon service at St. Paul's was equally fine in the execution. There the Anthem was the t*th Psalm, from the 7th Terse. It was a very animated and joyous one The verse, ' Tell it out among the heathen,' Ac., was executed in a mas terly-style, and the rejoicing of the fields and Woods was highly dramatic; but the whole was effective, as a religious instrument. It became an act of united worship, by carrying on the mind and bfeirt of the congregation with it. Its influ ence was solemn, spiritual A new exhibition of the choral service has been given to me. in the seriousness, propriety, and effect of it; and while I do not wonder at the interest which is taken in it by the people. 1 am delighted at the seriousness of worship with which it is received and per formed." Artificial Diamonds and Pearls.?One of the most curious sights in Pari*, or, indeed, iu the world, is afforded by a visit to the vast atelier of M. Bourguingnon, situated at Barriere de Trone, where the whole process of transforming a few grains of dirty, heaving looking sand into a diamond of the purest water is going or, with the avowed purpose of deceiving everybody but the buyer. The sand employed, and upon which everything depends, is found in the forest of Fontainebleau. and enjoys so great a reputation In the trade, that largequantites areexported. The coloring matter for emeralds, rubies and sao f>hires is entirely mineral, and has been brougut o high perfection by M. Bourguingnon. He man tains in constant employment about a hundred Workmen, besides a number of women and young girls, whose business it is to polish the colored stones and line the false pearls with fish scales and wax. The stales of roach and dace arc chief ly employed for the purpose, and are a considera- ' b'le source of profit to the fishermen of the Seine. | in the environs of Corbeil, who brini> them in large quantities during the season. Tney must be stripped from the fish while living, or the glistening which we admire so much iu the real pearl cannot be imitated. - I JUT" The official count of the votes for Appel late Judge in Kentucky gives Wheat, the Allien- ' can candidate. 37 unjority. |?7" In the Minnesota Constitutional Conven tion the Republicans have two majority clear over ?11 the disputed seats.

HIT ';Thou sbalt not covet," saith Holy Writ. Yet there are two things a man may seek for and most earnestly covet without wrong to the com mandment ; the love of a pure-hearted, intelli gent woman, and a good library. ILr The Rol*?na. an American freight ship, arrived at Woolwich arsenal on the 13th ultimo, having on board six breech-loading guns, manu factured in New York by order of the British Government. In consequence of the enormous weight of these guns?seventeen tons each?the vessel was ordered to discharge in the East India Docks. Another awful poisoning case has occurred In Massachusetts' Tue entire family of Mr. Jiio. Jones, living at Randolph, were made very sick with arsenic. but by the intervention of prompt measure** of relief their lives were saved. Miss Lucinda Ann Hunt, twenty-two years of age, was arrested on the charge of administering the poison CJ" The managers of the American Bible So ciety on the 2d instant appropriated 99,(Ml for printing the Armeno-Turkish Scriptures at Con stantinople, by American missionaries; and *'J. <**? to tue Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal church for printing and circulating the Scripttlres in Germany.

JX7" Offioe No. 31 Maiden Lane, Albany, N. Y. feb 14?ly The greatest "" MEDICAL DISCOVERY OF THE AGE. Mr. Ken^kdt. of Roxbury, has discovered in one of our oomuion pasture we?da a remedy that cares fcVKRT KIND or HCMOK, _ . from worst Scrofula down to a rem mom Pimple. He has tried it in over eleven hundred oases, and never failed except in two cases, Is-th Thunder Hu mor. He has now m his possession over one hundred eertifioatcs of ita value,all within twenty luiles of B<?a ton. .Two Ixittle. are warranted to cure a nursing Sore Mouth. One to three bottlea will cure the worst kind cf Pimplea on the Face. Twoor three liottlea will clear the system of Biles. Two (Kittles are warranted to cure the worat Canker in the Mouth and Stomach. three to hve bottles are warranted to cure the worst kind ol Ery sipelas. One or two Unties are warranted to cure all Hu mor in the Eyes. Two !m it ties are warranted to cure Running of the Ears ami Blotches among the Hair. I-our to six Utttlea are warranted to cure corrupt and running Llcers. One bottle will cure Scaly Eruptions of the Skin. I wo or three bottles are warranted to cure the worst kind of R ingworm. Twoor three bottles are warranted to cure the mos* desperate cage of Rheumatism. 1 hreo to four bottles are warranted to cure Salt rheum. F ivc to eight bottlea will cure the worat caae of Scrofula. A benefit is always experienced from the first bot tle, and a perfect cure is warranted wiieu the above quantity i* taken. Nothing looks so improlAble to those who have in vain tried all the wonderful medicines of the day, as that a common weod growing ou the pastures, and along old stoue waila. should cure everv humor in the ay stem ; yet it is a hxed fact. I f you have a humor, it has to start. There are no IFS nor A\DS, hums ?or *?out it suiting some cases, butlnot youra. I noddled over a thousand bottlea of it in the vicinity o? Boston. I know the effects of it in evenr case. It has already done some of the greatest curea ever done in Massachusetts. I gave it to children a year onl. in o(d peop,e of sixty. I have seen poor, puny, wormy-looking children, whose flesh was soft and nattiiy, restored to a perfect state of health by one i ottie. i T.V tho?f Tho are ?????ct to a sick headache, one bottle will always cure it. It sives great relief in catarrh and dizziness. Som* who have taken it Inid '?eeri costive for years, and have been regulated by it. Iiere the iHMly is sound it works quite easv. nut where there is any derangement of the functions ol na'iire. it will cause very singular feelings, but >.ou must iiot be alarmed; they always disappear in from four day a to a week. There is never a had re sult from it; on the contrary. when that feeling is gone, you will feel yourself like a new person. | heard some of the most extravagant encomiums of it that ever man listened to. In mv own practice I always kept it strictly for hu mors?but since its introduction as a general family medicine, great and wonderful virtues have t>een found hi it that I never suspected. Several casesof epileptic fits?a disease which was always considered incurable, have been cured by a few bott.es. O. what a inercy if it will prove etfec tual in all cases of that awful malady?there are but lew w ho have seen more of it fhan I have. I know of several cases of Dropsy, nil of them aged people cared bv .t. For the various diseases of the Liver, Sick Hendache. Dyspepsia, Aftamia. Fever and Ague. | ain in the Side, Diseases of the Spine, and particularly in Diseases of the Kidneys. Ac, the discovery has done more good than any medicine ever knovru.
