[From Ectry Saturday.)
EX ALFRED TEXKXSOS, POET LACT.EATE.
Lucilla, weddi d to Lucretius, found
Her ruastor cold ; for when the morning flush
Of passion and the first embrace had died
Between them, though he loved her none the less.
Yet oiten when the woman heard his foot
Return rrom pacings in the field, and ran
To greet him with a kiss, the master took
Small notice, or austerely, for?bis n;ind
Half buried in some weightier argument,
Or fancy-barne perhaps upon the riM
And long roll of the Hexameter?be pa**
To torn and ponder those three hundied scrolls
Left by the Teacher whom he held divine.
She brooked it not ; but wrathful, petulant,
Dreaming some rival, sought and found a witch
Who brewed the philter which had power, they said
To lead an errant passion home again.
And this, at times, she mingled with hia drink,
And this de*troyed him; for the wicked broth
Confused the chemic labor of the blood
And tickling the brute within the man's brain
Made havoc among those tender cells, and checked
His power to shape; he loathed himself; and once
Altec a tempest woke upen a morn
That mocked him with return ins calm and cried,?
"Storm in the night 1 for thrice I heard the rain
Rushing : and onc^s the flash of a thunderbolt?
Me thought I never saw so fierce a fork?
Struck ont the streaming mountain-side, and showed
A riotous confluence of watercourses
Blanching and billowing in a hollow of it,
Where all but yester-eve was dusty dry.
Storni and what dreams ye holy gods, what
For thrice I wakened after dreams. Perchance
We do not recollect the dreams that come
Just ere the waking; terrible I for it seemed
A void was made in Nature; all her bends
Cracked; and I saw the flaring atom-streams
And torrents of her myriad universe
Runxing along the illimitable inane.
Fly en to clash together again, and make
Another and another frame of things
Forever : that was mine, my dream, I knew it?
Ot and belonging to me, as the dog
With inward yelp and restless forefoot plies
His function of the woodland : but the next
1 thought that all the blood by Sylla shed
Came driving rai -like down again on earth,
And where it dashed the reddening meadow, sprang
No dragon warriors from Cad mean teeth,
For these I thought my dream would show to me,
But girls. He tairai, curious in their art,
Hired animalisms, vile as those that made
The mulberry-faced Dictator's orgies worse
Than aught they table of the quiet Gods.
And hands they mixt, and yelled and round me
In narrowing circles till I yelled again
Half suffocated, and sprang up and saw
Was it the first beam of my latent day ?
Then, then, from utter gloom stood out the breasts,
The breasts of Helen, and hoveringly a sword
Now over and now under, now direct
Pointed its eh to pierce, but sank down shamed
At all .hat beauty; and as I stared, a Are,
The fire that left a roofless Dion,
Shot out of them, and scorched m? that I woke.
Is this thy vengeance, holy Venus, thine.
Because I would not one of thine own doves,
Not even a rose, were offered to thee ? thine
Forgetful how my nch prooemlon makes
Thy glory fly along the Italian field.
In lays that will outlast thy Deity ?
Deity ? nay, thy worshippers. My tongue
Tripe, or I speak profanely. Which of these
Angers thee most, or angers thee at all !
Not if thou be'rt of those who far alcof
From envy, bate, and pity, and spite and scorn,
Live the great life which ail our greatest fain
Would follow, centred in eternal calm.
Nay, if thou canst, 0 Ooddess, like ourselves
Touch, and be touched, then would I cry to thee
To kiss thy Ma von, roll thy tender arms
Round him, and keep him from the lust of blood
That makes a steaming slaughter-house of Rome.
Ah, lut I meant not thee; I meant not her,
Whom ail the pines of Ida shook to see
slide from that quiet heaven of hers, and tempt
The Trojan, while his neat herds were abroad;
Nor her that o'er the wounded hunter wept,
Her Deity false in human-amorous tears;
Nor whom her beardless apple-arbiter
Decided fairest. Rather, O ye Gods,
Poet-like, as the great Sicilian called
Calliope to grace his golden verse?
Ay, and this Kypris also?did I take
That popular name of thine to shadow forth
The all-generating powers and genial heat
Of Nature, when she strikes through the thick blood
Of cattle, and light Is large and Iambs are glad
Nosing the mother's udder, and the bird
Makes his heart-voice amid the blaze of flowers !
Which things appear the work of mighty Gods.
The Gods 1 and if I go my work is le't.
Unttjash.-d?if I go. The Gods, who haunt
The lucid interspace of world and world.
Where never creeps a cloud, or moves a wind,
Nor ever falls the hast white star of snow,
Nor ever 1 j wert roll of thunder moans.
Nor sound of human sorrow mounts ro'mar
Their secret everlasting calm ! and such,
Not all so fine, nor so divine a calm,
Not such, nor all unlike it, man may gain
Letting his own life ko. The Gods, the Gods !
If all be atoms, how then should the Gods
Being atomic not be dissoluble.
Not lollow the great law I My master held
That Gods there are, for all men so believe.
I prest my footsteps into his, and meant
Surely to lead my Memmius in a train
Ol flowery clauses onward to the proof
That Gods there are, and deathless. Meant? I
I have torgotten what I meant: my mind
Stumbles, and all my faculties are lamed.
Look where another of our Gods, the Sun,
Apollo. Delias, or of older use,
All-seeing Hyperion?what yon will.
Has mounted yonder; since he never sware,
Except his wrath were wroaked on wretched man,
That he would only shine among the de d
Hereafter; tales I tor never yet on earth
Could dead flesh creep, or bits of roasting ox
Moan round the spit; nor knows he what he sees,
King of the East although he seem, and girt
With song and flame and fragrance, s^wly lifts
His golden feet on those impurpled s-, .-s
That climb into the windy halls of heaven ?
And here he glances on an eye new-bors,
And gets for greeting bnt a wail of pain ;
And here he stays upon a freezing otb
That fain would gaze upon him to the last ;
And here upon a yellow eyelid fallen
And closed by those who mourn atrisnd in vein,
N it thankful that his troubles are no more.
And me, although his fire is on my face
Blindiig, he sees not, nor at aU can tell
Whetr er I mean this day to end myself,
Or lend an ear to Plaio where he says.
That men like soldiers may not quit the post
Allottee; by the Gods: but he thu holds
The God?- are careles*, wherefore need be care
Greatly for them, nor rather plunge at once.
Bring troubled, wholly out of sight, and sink
Past earthquake?ay, and gout and stone, that break
Body toward deatn, and palsy, death-in-life,
And wretched age?and worst disease of all,
These prodigies of myriad nakedness.
And twisted shapes ol lust, unspeakable,
Abominable, strangers at my hearth
Not welcome, harpies miring every dish.
The phantom huBks of something louliy done,
And fleeting through the boundless universe,
And blasting the long quiet of my breast
With animal heat and dire insanity.
How should the mind, except it loved them, clasp
These idols to her sei: ? or do they fly
Now thinner, and now thicker, like tbe flakes
In a fall of snow, and so press in, perforce
Of multitude, as crowds that in an hour
Of dvis tumult jam the doors, and bear
The keepers down, and throag, their rags and they,
The basest, far Into that council-hall
Where sit the oest and stateliest of the land ?
Can I not fling this horror off me again,
Se< ing with how great ease Nature can smile;
Balmier and nobler from her bath of storm,
At random ravage ? and bow easily
The mountain there has can his cloudy slough,
Now towering o'er bim in Bereuest air,
A mountain o'er a mountain, ay, and within
All hollow at the hope* and fears of men.
But who was he that in the garden snared
Pi cue and Faun us, rustic Gods ? a tale
To laugh at?more to laugh at in myself?
For look! what is it? there? yon arbutus
Totters; a noiseless riot underneath
Strikes through the wooi, sets eli the tops quiver
The mountain quickens into Nymph and Faun;
And here an Oread (how the sun delights
To glance and shift about her slippery aides
And rosy knees, and supple rounded ness,
And budded bosom-peaks) who this way runs
Beiore the rest?A satyr; a satyr; see
Follows; but him I proved imposai ole;
Twi-natured is no nature; yet he draws
Nearer and nearer, and I scan him now
Beastlier than any phantom ot his kind
That ever butted his brother-brute
For lust or lusty blcod or provender:
I hate, abhor, spit, sicken at him; and she
Loathes him as well; such a precipitate heel.
Fledged, u it were, with Mercury'6 ankle-wing.
Whirls her to me: but will the fling herself,
Shameless upon me ? Catch her goatloot: nay,
Hide, hide them, mUbon-mirtled wilderness.*
And cavern-shadowing laurels, hide ! do I wish
What ? that the both were leafless ? or to whelm
All of them in one massacre ? 0 ye Gods,
I know yon careless, yet careless, to you
From chilly want and ancient use I cull?
1 thought 1 Uved securely as yourselves?
No lewdnese, narrowing envy, monk?y-spite,
No madness of ambition, avarice, none;
No larger feast than under plane or pine
With neighbors laid along tbe grass, to take
Only such cups as left usfriendly-warm,
Aifirming each hie own philosophy
Nothing to mar the eooer majesties
Of settled, sweet. Epicurean life?
But now it seems some unseen monster lays
His vast and filthy hands upon my will,
Wrenching it backward into bis : and spoils
My bliss in being; and it was not great;
For save when shutting reasons up in rythm.
Or Heliconian honey in living woi ds.
To make a uuth less harsh, I often grew
Tired of so much within our little hie,
Or of so little in our little life
Poor little life that toddles hah" an hour
Crowned with a flower or two, and there on end?
And since the nobler pleasure seems to lade,
Why< should I, bea6tlike as I find myceU,
Not manlike end myself ??our privilege?
What bef.st has heart to do it ? And wnat man,
What Roman would be dragged m triumph thus?
Not I, not he, who bears one naioe with her.
Whose death-blow struck the dateless doom ofkings,
When brooldng not the Tarquin in her Teins.
She made her dood in sight of Colistine
And all his peer?, flushing the guiltless air.
Spout from the maider r'ountam iu her heart.
And from it sprang the Commonwealth, which
As I am i' eating now 1
And therefore now
Let her. that is the worrb and tomb of all.
Great Nature take, and torcing far apart
Those blind beginnings that have made me man
Dash them anew together at her will
Through all her cycles?into man once more,
Or beast, cr bird, or flsh. or opulent flower
But till this cosmic ordsr everywhere
Shattered into one earthquake in one day
Cracks aU to piece-?and that hour perhaps
Is not so far when momentary man
shaU seem no more a something to himself,
But he, his hopes and Late?, his homes and fane?,
And even his bones lorn; laid within the grave,
The very sides of the g:-ave itself shall pass,
Vanishing, atom' and vcid. atom and void,
Into the un-een forever?till that hour.
My golden work in which I told a truth
That4stays the rolling Ixionian whee',|
And numbs the Fury's ringlet-snake, and plucks
The mortal soul irom oat immortal hell,
shall stand: ay, surely, then it ulls at last
And perishes as I must; for O Thou,
Passionless bride, divine Tranquillity,
Yearned after by the wisest of the wise,
Who fail to find thee, b?iag as thou art
Without one pleasure tnd without one pain,
Howbeit I know thou surely must be mine,
Or soon or late, yet ou< of season, thus
I woo thee roughly, foi thou rarest not
How roughly men may woo thee so they win
Thus?thus: the soul flies out and dies in the air."
With that he drove the knife into hi= side;
She heard him raging, heard him fall; ran in.
Beat breast, tore hair, cried out upon herself
As ha vine failed in duty to him, shrieked
That she but meant to win him back, fell on him,
Clasped, kissed him, wailed: he answered, "dre not
What matters? AU is over: Fare thee well!"

Gentlemen : In reply to your inquiry relative to the merits of WHANN'S SUPER-PHOS
PHATE, which, at your recommendation, I empoyed this season upon my Cotton lands, 1
would state that it has fully equalled, and indeed surpassed my expectations, and its applica
tion has been attended by the most favorable results. I have used it in connection with the
most popular Phosphates, and unhesitatingly give the preference to WHANN'S, which I
regard as being (next to Peruvian Guano) the most valuable Fertilizer for Cotton that has been
offered to the public. Very respectfully, ALLES C. IZARD.

Dr. J. J. Lawrence:
Deab Sib:?I take pleasure in recommending your
ROSADALIS as a very powerful alterative. I have
seen it used in two cases with happy results?one a
case of recondary syphilis. In which the patient pro
nounced himself cured after having taken five bot
tles of your medicine; the other a case of Bcrofnla,
of long standing, which is rapidly improving under
its use, and the indications are that tho patient will
soon recover. I have carefully examined the formu
la by which your Rosadalis is made, and find it an
excellent compound of alterative ingreJients.
Yours truly, B. W. CARS, M. D.

Deab Sie?My youngest daughter, aged five years,
has been dreadtully afflicted with Scrofula nearly all
her life. I tried a great many physicians, but witn
out relieving her much; in facL most of them said
there was no hope of cure. During the last spring
she was worse than ever, her body and limbs being
covered with sores and blotches?with face and eyes
t-idly ulcerated and swollen. Whilst in this condi

Rosadalis. I at once procured three bottles, and
commenced giving it to her. The effect was magi
cal. In lefs than a month, to my great astonish
ment, she was entirely well.
I am sir, yours,
With much respect and gratitude,
