EVENING STAR. THE LIGHT OF HOME. BT SARAH JOSErHA HALE. Mv hov, thou wilt dream the world is fair. And thy spirit will fixh to roam. And tbou nmKt in, but never when tlicro Forget the hunt ol home. Though pleasure may smile with a ray more bright. It dazzles to lead astray ; Like the meteor's liash it will doepen the night. When thou treat'. ?it the lonely way. But th? hearth of home has a constant flame, And pure as the vestal hre; ?Twill burn, 'twill burn, forever the same. k "naturefeeds the pyre. B^Li'n ?,??. ?"->i,v:,'.radd"io" Then look to the light o. And there, like a star through ?.** JMdniclit cloud. Thou shait see the beaoon bright For never, till shining on thy shroud. Can be quenched its holy light. The sun of fame, 'twill gild the name. But the heart ne'er feels its ray ; And fashion's smiles that rich ones claim. And like beams of a wintry day. And how cold and dim those lieams would l>e. Should life's wretched wanderer come : But mv boy. when the world is dark to thee. Then turn to the light of home.

When off Bailey's Harbor, 3 iniIrs from shore the compass b-ijan to oscillate from point to point, without remaining a moment at any one plate, until finally it acquired a rotary motion, and spun around with great rapidity We stopped it several t'rs** but it woulif again commence veering backward ??(l forward, and very soon began whirling again" This continued for several miles.

'i w* Soy A'l^o'nt*. Bkrcpisd Fish i> Maixe. We understand that Mr. I'pham Treat, formerly of Frankfort,has been busily engaged since earlv In the Spring to the p.esent time in buying up alewives, shad, bass, and salmon, and depositing them in tn? k'?

Mr. Trent has expended upward of two thousand dollars in the operation, and it is to be hoped that he will realize his most sanguine expectations, for It must be a great lienefli to thin region. The project has been tried in France successfully, and we no reason why it should not succeed equally well in this country.?Calais Adv. A Jewish Sii-rrstition.? a brother of Isaac Jackson, the man who was murdered by Charles E Jones, at Russell, was peddling in the wagou that Isaac drove, when shot, a few weeks since, and stopped at a village in this vicinity. In the course of showing his wares he discovered upon a piece of goods a single drop of blood Over come by his feelings the poor lellow cried for a fpw K.on?ents like a child, then he folded up the cloth and said that he must go immediately to Hartford, take up the body of the murdered man, and bury the blood-besprinkled article with him; that by Jewish forms all bloody garments or other cloths must be interred with a murdered man, and that all they bad previously no'iccJ had been?Springfir, IJ Hf/'ulliran. To make Postage Stamis Stick.?Tlie rea son that postage stamps are liable to come off is this, when the paper is moistened on one side it swells on that side, and of course curls up to wards the other. \\ hen. tbejefore, the stamp is laid on the corners the edges are apt to rise up and the skimp is loosened. To remedy this, af ter moistening the gummed side of the stamp and laving it on the envelope. moi?ten the other side, which will cause that side of the stain to swell and curl down again. Press the guminmed side of the stamp lightly on the tongue, lay it on the envelope, and then press the tongue on th? upi?er side of the stamp, and pre-.* it down evenly with the ball of the thumb. The j?aper will tear soon er than it will come off, unless it should acci nentally be wetted. Bible Revision?The question of a new re vision of the Sacred Scriptures is now excitiii" great attention in England. That an authorized revision must come eve ntually appears to lie the opinion on all sides. \ recent writer say* ? Even the ^laiit names ef King James's transla tors are insufficient to avert this.

T^e following extract from a New York oaanM fhil to l?e interesting. In referring to the recasts of Teas in thts country for one year up f*ueth ultimo, it says thev will l>e 12, poifV^ short or the imports of the year end ing JunoS'.

"It will thus lw seen nlat the strong and rapid advance in tlie tea mark?t has been the result of r* ?.hort supply and active demand ; but when it tacoii sidered that we mm hear nf anv moment of the en tire suspension o| shipment** at Shanghai. and. in fact, that, as soon as a sufficient for;e from England arrives al the seat of war, all hre porta of entry in China, will probably lie placed ande? strict blockade, ii would not l>e surprising to see Teas at a much higher figure than they have yet attained."

U v? i? i>.i a ajic a ME D I cJ^L_.DJSCO VERY Mr. Krnnwdt. of Roxtmrr, has discovered in <me of our oownon pasture weeds a remedy Uut cures KVKET USD or UCMoK, froin The worst Scrofula down to a common Pimple. He has tried it in over eleven hundred eases, and never failed except in two cues, both Thunder Hu mor. He bu now iu Ins possession over one hundred certificates of its value,all within twenty utiles of Boston. Two bottle* are warranted to cure a nursing Sore Mouth. One to three bottles will cure the worst kind of Pimples on the Knee. Twoor three bottles will clear the system of Biles.

Two bottles are warranted to cure the worst Canker in the Mouth and Stomach. Three to five bottles are warranted to cure the worst kind of Erysipelas. One or two bottles are warranted to cure all Hu mor in the Eyes. Two bottles are warranted to cure Running of the Ears and Blotohes among the Hair. Four to six bottles are warranted to cure oorrupt and running Ulcers. Ono bottle will cure Scaly Eruptions of the Skin. Twoor three bottles are warranted to cure the worst kind of Ringworm. Twoor three bottles are warranted to cure the most most desperate case of RlieumatiHin. Three to four bottles are warranted to oure Salt rheum. Five to eight bottle* will cure the worst case of Scrofula. A benefit ir always experienced from the first bot tle, and a perfect cure is warranted when the above quantity is taken. Nothing looks so improliable to those who have in vain tried all the wonderful medicnics of the day, as that a common weed growing on the pastures, and along old stone walls, should cure every humor in the system ; yet it is a fixed fact. If you nave a humor, it has to start. There are no 1 Fs nor AN DS, hums nor ha's about it suiting some oases, butlnot yours. 1 peddled over a thousand Uittles of it in the vicinity of Boston. I know the effects of it iu every ease. It uas already done some of the greatest curcs ever done in Massachusetts. I gave it to children a year oid. to oid peopie of sixty. I have seen poor, puny, wormy -looking children, whose flesh was sort and flabby, restored to a perfect state of health by one bottle. To those who are subject to a sick headache, one bottle will always cure it. It gives great relief in catarrh and dizziness. Some who have taken it had been costive for years, and have been regulated l?y it. Where the lx>dy is Bound it m-orks quite easy, but where there is any derangement of the functions of nature, it will cause very singular filings, but you must not be alarmed; they always disappear in from four days to a week. There is never a bad re suit from it; on the contrary, when that feeling is gone, you will feel yourself like a new person. I heard some of the most extravagant encomium* o? it that ever man listened t?. In my own practice I always kept it strict!* for hu mors?but since its introduction as a genernl family medicine, great and wonderful virtues have been found in it that I never suspected. Several cases of epileptic fits?a disease which was always considered incurable, have l?een cured by a few l*>tfles. O, what a mcrcy if it will prove effec tual mall cases of that awful inalady? there are hut few who have seen more of it than I have. I know of several cases of Dropsy, all of them aged reople cured Ijy it. For the various discuses of tho liver. Sick Headache, Dyspepsia. Asthma, Fever and Ague, Pain in the Side, Diseases of the Spine, and particularly in Diseases of i he Kidneys, Ac., the discovery has done more good than any uie<flcino ever known. No chnnro of diet ever neoessary?oat the l<est you can get and enough of it. I)irrrtionx for Use.?Adults one table-spoonful per day?children over ten years dessert spoonful? children from five to eight, years, tea spoonful.

I recommend him as a skilful optician. HENRY A. WISE. Having been induced by a friend to visit the estab lishment of Mr. Tobias for the purpose of trying his classes, I was furnished by linn with a pair slightly colored blue, which have afforded me more relief and gratification than any I have ever tried. My eight, originally very goo I, was injured by writ nig and reading at mgiit. frequently to a very late hour; hut with the aid of these glasses I can study almost as late im ever, and that too without the pain I have previously suflered. JOHN WILSON, I Ate Commissioner Gen'l Land Office. Dec. 11. 1855.

A. P. BUTLER, July 11, IMS. Wilminstox. N. C., Jan. 17,1854. Mr. J. Tobias. Dear Sir: I am happy to say that the Spectacles which I obtained from you last'week are entirely satisfactory. From an inequality in the visual range of my eyes, I have heretofore found great difficulty in getting glasses of the proper focal dufanee. It affords me pleasnrefo state the aid of your optometer, this difficulty has f>een happi ly obviated, so that f he glasses you furnished me are decidedly the best adapted to my eyes of any I have over yet used. Very respectfully,yours, R. B. DRANK, Rector of St. James's Parish. Department of Interior, May 8, IRift. From natural defects and the unequal range of my eyes, I have l>een compelled to use glasses for seve ral years. I have tried different opticians without (ditaiiung glasses perfectly fitted to my eyes. Four months tinoe Mr. Tobias made two pairs espeoinlly Tor me, which I havo found to serve me perfeotly. Hv the use of his optometer fie is enabled to adapt (I uses most minutely to the eye.
