EVENING STAR. ROSALIE. t. A* the san wits shining cosily One pleasant da* m Mar, And the oat vat pnrrin* do*tly. Ami the do* was ootled awav. I and my littie Rosalie? ? The oid folks veroiwtr, Who else, perhaps. morosely Had spoiled our litt le p!aj ,? I and mv little Rosalie, With lota of thing" to aay, Sa' gossiping jocosely. And wiled the lionrs awu. Not dozily, m>r prosily. But cosily ?wa>. ti. But what we said so ooailv, I'm sure 1 cannot say, I only know that Koran* Waa beautiful that day : A id that wnile the dog so tl->Bily i'poa the carpet lay. And while the cat composedly Slept all tlie time away. I aud inv littie KumIik Had lots of things to aay ; And said thein so jocoael*. We wiled the hours away Not doxily. nor prosily. Bui cosily that dar. lit. Yet though we talked jocosely Aa the hour* they sped awai, I and my 1 ttle Rosalie, Like children were at pla? ; And though what we s?am ao cosity, I'm sure 1 cannot aay. But only know iluit Kosalie Whs beautiful that day. I cannot now composedly Recall the month of May, When side by side so olosely We wiled the time away? Not dosily. nor prosily. But oozily away. IT. Far never more my Rosalia Shall see the light of day. Her little form lies cosily Among the dowers of May ; The summer bees huiml<>zil* Above her beauteous clay ; The litti<? dog which cosily Upon the carpet lay. Mourns now (or little Rosalie. And the cat has ceased to play. While 1 can ne'er composedly Recall the month of May, And dozily and prosiir. My hours thev pass away. IW. y. Erftting Pat. How a* Axaconim was CArrr-RED.?A few days sinec Captain Wilson arrived in port with three anacondas, which ho had conveyed to his house in Front street, above South One of the animals, a "beautiful'" fallow, fifteen feet long, and stout in proportion, become among the wis hing on Tuesday last, and it was thought he hail been stolen : but yesterday afternoon the fact leaked out that his snakeship had merely jour neyed off on an exploring expedition, or per haps he fancied himself in his native land and went in search of the elephant; at all events. Jesterday afternoon officer 61 of the Second ivision was in Swanson street, near South, when a Hibernian came to him in breathless haste aud stated that a, "whapping big bull dog was in the cellar.'" No. til immediately descended to the cellar in search of the big dog. but. was somewhat astonished at putting foot upon something sliiny. No. 61 next heard a tremendous hissing, aud concluded it was about time to leave, but in attempting to beat are treat he found he had caught a tartar, for the snake wound himself around the leg and the body of the officer, and commenced to crush him up in accordance with the regularly estab lished practice of auaconda*. Fortunately for the police establishment of the Second District, No. 61 is a very powerful man. and i s spunky as be is athletic. He seized the suake by tho back of the neck with a tremendous grip, and held him very uncomfortable and much aston ished until Captain Wilson was sent for. Tho Captain relieved No. 61 in the custody of the snake's nape, and while he held on the officer unwound himself ?Phil. Bulletin. '? Ca?*T T*LLTOTHKB FROM WlUCH.'"?A TJ singular occurrence, involving the identity of two newly-born specimens of '-loung America." was related to us as having transpired recently in Lower Mt. Bethel township, in this county A lady who was about to present her liego lord with a " pledge of affeetion,'* engaged the ser vices of a worthy dame in the neighborhood to assist her through the period of confinement. The nurse was called and very promptly made her appearance, when it was discovered thnt she was herself quite as much in need of the ser vices of an uccouckrnr as the lady of the house The sequel is soon told . two fine b>ys were born, and in the hurry and confusion conse Sient upon this unexpected turn in events, ev got so mixed up that it was impossible to determine with any certainty as to the tnaterrity of the children As might Le supposed, a great deal ofdiscussion ensued, and the mothers of the babes were greatly distressed, but the best that would be done under the circumstances was for the party present to assign the children to the mothers and await the developments of the future If the growth ot the children should discover any strong family resemblances the ladies can swop back and make the matter all right, but without such developments they must ever remain rn doubt as to the genuineness of their ?? precious darling." It is a very dis tressing case, and the folks present ought to have knowu better than to have got a pair of ba bies mix?*d up. but on such occasions people will get into a flurry and strange things are liable to occur.?hasten (Pa.) l?xj>re.is. T He Heat or Debate ?litre Is a curious error from an English paper, which we attribute either to the heat of debate, or the heat of the weathe.: Erra:*tri ?In the report of the Attorney Gene rals speech in Saturday's paper, Sir R Hittiell !?? reoiesented as having said, ?p~akinz of Mr. Gladstone, that "perspiration was exuding from every por*";*' what he did say was, ''el'tqiieiice bursting f<om every bore."

No pay will be made for trips not performed ; and for eacn of such omissions not satisfactorily ex plained three tunes the. pay of the trip may be de ducted. For arrivals so far behind time as to break oonnexion with depending mails.and not sufficiently excused, one-fourth of tho compensation for the trip is subject to forfeiture. 3.

Odeou Hall, corner4H st.and Pennsylvauiaavenue, S.WALKER has fitted up the al>ove spacious apartments at a verv great outlay of capital, thereby rendering his establishment one of the most oom plete and handsome hi the whojo country. He has a large tiallery for/r?? es.kibitioH of upward of 2'10 hue Oil Paintings, by some of the best ancient and modern masters, to which he intends to add fresh importations. S. Walker has also fitted up a com plete suit of rooms, with private robing apartments for ladies, and purchased the finest possible instrn uieuts, and eunaged a first claps operstive artist to assist him in the department for taking all kinds of PHOTOGRAPHIC, AMBROTYPE AND DA GUERREOTYPE PORTRAITS, from the smallest miniature to size of life. S. Wal*ee. by combining the Photographic Pro cess with the art of Painting. of which he has had 25 years' experience, and wnose specimens of life size portraits may lie seen in some of the first fanu lies of the oitv, af well as those exhibited in his Gallery, he will be able, by the combination of the I two, to produce portraits that have never been ex 1 celled for their fidelity and life-likeexr>re?sion.

One to three bottles will cure the worst kind of Pimples on the Faoe. Twoor three bottles will olear the system of Bile*.

T*o bottles are warrauted to onre the worst Canker in the Mouth and Stomach. Three to fivo bottles are warranted to onre the rorst kind of Erysipelas. < >ne or two Lx>ttlea are warranted to cure all Hu mor in the Eyes.

Twoor three bottles are warranted to cure the most most desperate case of Rheumatism. Three to four bottles are warranted to oure Sait rheum. Five to eiftht bottles will oure the woratoaseof Scrofula. A benefit is a!wars experienced from the first bot tle, sn?i a perfect oure is warranted when the above quantity is taken. Notions looks so improhabie to those who have in yam tried all the wonderful medicines of the day, as that a common we*d growing on the pastures, and along old stonewalls, should cure every bumorinthe system ; yet it is a fixed fhct. If yon have a humor, it has to start. Thero are no IFSnor ANDS, hums nor ha s aln>ut it suiting some cases, bu'hiot yours. I poudlod over a thousand bottles of it in the vicinity of Boston, I know the cflccts of it iu every oase. It ?as already done some of the greatest cures ever done in Massachusetts. I gave it to children a year oid, to oid r>eopie of sixty. I have seen poor, puny, woriny-looking children, whose tiesh was sort aud flabby, restored to a perfect state of health by one bottle. To those who ara snbjeot to a sick headaohe, one bottle will always cure it. It gives great relisf in catarrh and dizziness. Some who have taken it had beenipostive for years, and have been regulated by it. W here the body is sound it works quite easy, hut where there is any doraugeinent of the functions of nature.it will cause very singular feelings, but you must not bo alarmed; tliey always disappear in from four days to a week. There is never a bad re sult from it; on the contrary, when that feeling is sone. you will feel yourself like a new person. I heard some or the most extravagant enoonuums of it that ever man listened to. In inr own practice I always kept it strictly for hu mors?but sincc its introduction as a general family medicine, great and wonderful virtues have l*jen found in it that I never suspected. Several eases of epileptic fits?a disease which was at ways considered incurable, have been cured by a few liottles. O, what a mercy if it will prove effec tual in all case* of that awful malady?there are but few who have seen more of it than I have. I know of several cases of Dropsy, all of them aged people cured by it. For the various diseases of the ie?r' , Hcadacho, Dyspepsia, Asthma, Fever and Ague, 1 ain in the Side, Diseases of the Spiiie, and particularly in Diseases of the Kidneys. Ac., the discovery has done more good tlrnn any medicine ever known. No chance of diet ever necessary?eat the best you can cet and enough of it. Directions for Use.?Adults one table-spoonful per day?children over ten years dessert spoonful? children from five to eight years, tea-spoonful.
