EVENING STAR. THE SABBATH DAY. BT WILLIAM HOWITT. What ?pell has o'er the populous city past ? The wonted outreat or it* life is stay d: It* sports, its gainful schemes are earthward cast. As though their vileness were at once display'd; The roar of trade has coased, and on the air Come holy songs, and solemn sounds of prayer. Far spreads the charm ; from every hamlet spire A note of rest and heavenward thought is peal'd : By his calm hearth reclines the peaaant sire ; The toil-worn steed hasks in tne breezy held. Within, without, through farm and cottage blest, 'Tis one bright day of gladness nnd of rest. Down from the mountain dwellings, whilst the dew Shines on the heath-bellsf and tne fern is bending, In the fresh breese, in festive garbs 1 view Childhood, and age, the buoyant youth descending. <<od! who has piled thy wonders round their home, 'Tis in their love they to thy temple some. A stately ship speeds o'er the mighty main? Oh ! many a league from our own happy land ! Vet from its heart ascends the choral stra:n; For there its little isolated hand. Amid the ocean desert's awful roar. Praise him whose love link? shore to distant shore. O'er palmv woods where summer radiance falls, In the glad islands of the Indian main. What thronging crowds the missionary calls To raise to heaven the Christian's glorious strain! L? ! where, engnt by children of the sun, Htauds the white man, and counts his vidtories won. In the fierce deserts of a distant zone, 'Mid savage nations, terrible and stern, A lonely a^om, sever'd from his own. The traveller wends.death or renown to enrn. Parch'd. fasting, wearied, verging to despair. He kneels, he prays; hope ki?nl!ess in his prayer. O'er the wide world, blest day, thine influence flies; Rest o'er the sufferer spreads l?er talmy wings ; Love wakes, joy dawns, praise tills the listening skies; The expanding heart from earths enchantment springs; Heaven, for one day. withdraws its nneient ban, I nbars its gates, ana dwells once more with mnn. lO"" The Boston Courier announces the fol lowing : '?It is stated that Messrs. Phillips. Sampson \ Co.. have made arrangements to commence the rublication of an original American Magazine, n which, however, they propose to secure also the assistance of some English authors." fO~ Advices received from Fort Randnll state that the hand of Sioux Indians?the same that committed the outrages and murders at Spirit Lake?are now at the headwaters of the James river, about sixtv miles front Fort Pierre. It is firobable United' States troops will lie sent after hem. Mtssorst Marble ?A western paper makes mention of a block of marble taken from a quarry opposite Caradean, Mo., fifty miles above Cairo on the Mississippi. The marble is described as of a browning color, beautifully variegated, of a very .^pe grain, susceptible of a high polish, and eicelleri* /of building and ornamental purposes. A SkaSa.*M<?n i'P TUB Cot'NTKY.?The Lan singburg Gaze'teaays: Monday morning, about four o'clock, whife King, the renowned Lan singburg fisherman. '**as fishing below the dam, he caught a sea salmon Weighing over 12 pounds, in his net. Joe says " he iuade as much fuss as fifty shad.*' It is the first flsh of the kind ever taught in this vicinity. A father shot by his son.?One night, last week. Col. D. H. Witcher. propriety of the At lanta house, Ga., reprimanded his *?n. a youth aged lw or *20 years, for drinking, when the youth drew a pistol and tired- The ball unfcntanately took effect in the abdomen of the father, pssssing through the left lobe of the liver and lodging in the spine, causing his death on the following day. The parricide immediately made his escape. A Military Suggestion.?We learn that at the recent gathering at Lexington, it wab sug gested by several military officers that a gratid^ re view of all the volunteer companies in the I'ni ted States be held at some suitable time on the {irairies of Illinois, and be reviewed by the Presi dent of the I'nited States and General Scott ;*Jid Staff. A grand suggestion. jp* The cause of Rev. Or Ross and his sup porters in seceding from the New School Assem bly at Cleveland, meets the marked disapproba tion of the majority of the Presbyterian Church in the South. The Southern Presbvtcrian. pub lished at Charleston, as the organ of the Church In the South, has a sharp article oil Dr. Ross, de clining to accept his leadership. niT" Henry Winter,an American. Is at the head of the ship-building establishment of the Dan ube Navigaticr** Company, one of tlie largest and most successful In ?he world, whose invest?fl capital amounts to S?17.?MMS??. They have at pres ent In constant employ 9t> side-trbeel steamers," propellors, 450 barges, and 1.5M landing bridges, roads, and coal tenders, all of iron, and they are constantly adding to their number. {JT It has remained for the present generation to witness the practical demonstration of the fact that Niagara river is navigable for steamers from tbe city of Buffalo to the village of Niagara Falls, and on Monday navigation was formally opened between the two places, with ceremonies appro priate to the occasion. Three steamers, loaded with people, traversed the distance from the Great Hydraulic Canal to Buffdo, and were received by an immense concourse of people, with cheering and the firing of cannon. An amusing incident occurred recently in rega d to Powers' Fisher Boy. A gentleman wh# set a high value on his copy of this graceful work before embarking for Europe, bad it care fully shrouded in cotton and deposited in a Ih>x. A gang of juvenile burglars invaded his premi ses. broke oj?en bis case, and thought, from its weight, to find plate within ; but. when the white visage of the marble sleeper caught their eyes, by tne dim light of a lantern, thinking they had disturbed a corpse, tbev dropped their thieving tools and incontinently fled, without a particle of spoil. Tibbino a Man.?This is the latest crime in New Orleans?or rather the newest stvle ot amusement of certain municipalities of that re markable city. A gentleman is walking along the street?is suddenly seized, and in front of one of the public pumps is ducked in the pool of wa ter. The more splendid his clothes, and the more elegant his appearance, the more anxious are tbe mobs to give their subject hydropathic treatment. We notice no attention ?>eing paid to this matter bv the New Orleans Police They, doubtless, think the whole population deserve the applica tion of water. Anomalijc* of Trade?The marine list In Saturday's Whig, chronicled the arrival at this port, of a cargo of lime from Maine, a cargo of oyster shells from Baltimore, to used, no doubt, in the manufacture of lime; a cargo of lumber from Albany, N. Y.; a cargo of herrings from Halifax, and a cargo of coal from Poit De posit. while the list of clearances embraced a vessel for Alexandria, and another for the city of New York, with cargoes of bituminous coal.

INTERESTING TO FAMILIES. The following extract from a New York paper cannot fii: to bo interesting. In referring to^g^n* the receipts o|'Toas in this country for oner^T?' year up to3?th ultimo, it says they will tie 12,-LJ-Jp iMMi.nOU pounds short of the imports of the year end ing June;?i, Ifiofi,and that ? The advauce hi black teas. Oolongs, since last December, has I wen tilteen cents per pound; and > oung Hyson I'oas, of .low and medium grades, have experienced an advance of one hundred per cent, over last season's closing prices. "It wi>l thus be soon that th? strong and rapid advance in the tea market has beon the result of* short supply ami nelive demand ; but when it is con sidered that we may hear at any moment of the en tir- suspension of shipments at Shanghai, and. in fact, that, as soon as a sufficient force from England arrives at the seat of war. all five ports of entry in China, will probably lie placed under strict blockade, it would not lw surprising to see Teas at a much higher tigure than they have yet attained."

THE GREATEST cu _ , OF TtfE AGE. 1sas< v? s? i ?n a I>C A AI K D 1 C A L DISCOVERY ~ THE Mr. Kijutkdy, of Roxburr, has discovered in one of our common paxture weeds a remedy that ouree KVKKT KIND 0# HCMOl, from Tht ?eor.?f Scrofula dcitn to a common Pimpl*. He has tried it in over eleven hundred oases, and never foiled exoept in two oases, ln?th Thunder Hu mor. He has now in his possession over one hundred certificates of its value, ail within twenty milae of Boston. Two bottles are warranted to cure a nursing Sore Mouth. One to three bottles will oure the worst kind of Pimples on the Face. Two or three bottles will clear the srstem of Riles. Two Utttles are warranted to cure the worst Canker in the Mouth and Stomach. Three to five bottles are warranted to core the worst kind of Kn sipelas. One or two bottles are warranted to oure all Hu mor in the F.yes. Two bottles are warranted to cure Running of the r.ars and Blotches among the Hair. I* our to six l??tt!es are warranted to cure corrupt and rummig L leers. One bottle will cure Scaly Eruptions of the Skin. I wo or three bottles are warranted to oure the worst kind of Ringworm. Two or three bottles are warranted to oure the most most desperate case of Rheumatism. 1 hre? to four bottles are warranted to cure Salt rheum. Scrofula* will enre the worst oaae of A benefit is always experienced from the first bot tle, and a ported cure is warranted when the above quantify is taken. Nothing looks so improhable to those who have in vain tried all the wonderful medicines of the day. as that a common weed growing ou the pastures, and old stone walls, should cure every huinorinthe system ; yet it is a hxed fact. If you have a humor, it has to start. There are no IFS nor ANDS, hums nor ha s aliout it suiting some cases, butlnot Tours. I peddled over a thousand bottles of it in the vicinity of Boston. I know the effects of it in every case. It has already done some of the greatest cures ever done in Massachusetts. I gave it to children a t ear oid. Jo oid Deopie of sixty. I have seen poor, puny, wormy-looking children, whose flesh was soft and . ottle' re6tor to a Perfeot tl4te health by one i T.V tho?? 7ho ar?

Where the body is sound it works quitceasy, hut where there is any derangement of the functions of nature, it wnl cause very singular feelings, but you inust not lie alarmed; they always disappear in from four days to a week. There is never a f?r?d re sult Iroin it; on the oontrary. when that feeling is gone, you will feel yourself like a new person. I heard some of the most extravagant encomium* of it that ever man listened to. In inr own practice I always kept it strictly for hu .!! >ut Blnc*introduction as a general familv medicine, great ami wonderful virtues have been found in it that I never suspected. Several irises of epileptic fits?a disease which waa aia ay s considered incurable, have l*een cured by a few bottles.
