EVENING STAR.
ocroBis.
BY WILLI? QAYLOBD CLABK.
Solemn, yet beautiful to view,
Month of my heart! thou dawneat here,
With sad and faded leases to strew
The summer's melancholy bier.
The moaning of the winds I hear,
As the red sunset dies afar,
And bars of purple clouds appear,
Obscuring every Western star.
Thou solemn month ! I hear thy voice;
It tell* mv soul of other days,
When but to live wu to rejoice,
WWn earth was lovely to mvgaze:
0 .vis Iocs bright! O, blessed hours !
Where are their living raptmes now ?
1 ask my spirits wearied powers?
I ask my pale and fever- d brow.
1 lo?k t > Mature and behold
My life's dim embers, rustling round,
In hues of crimson and of gold ?
The year's dead hrnors on the ground,
And 'ighlng with the winds, I feel
W ith their low pinions murmur by,
How much their sweeping tones reveal
Of life aad Lamao destiny.
When spring's delightsome moments shone,
They tame in zepnyT's from the West;
They Sore the woodiark's melting tone,
T&ey stirred the blue lake's gla-sv breast;
Through Summer, fainting in the heat,
Tuey lingered in the forest shade;
Bnt changed and strengthened now, they beat
ia s.oriu, o'er mountain, glen and glade.
flow like those transports of the breast,
When life is frtsh and joy is rew:
Soft as the halcyon's downy nest,
And tranfi nt all, as they are true !
1 hey stir the leaves in that bright wreath
W h ch Hope about her forehead twines,
"Till Grief's bot s'ghs around it breathe;
TLea Pleasure's lip Its bmile resigns.
Alas ! for Time, and Death, and Care!
What gloom about our way they fling !
Like clouds in Autumn's gusty air,
The burial pageant of the Spring.
Th? dreams tnat each successive year
See ntd bathed in hues of brighter pride.
At last, like withered leaves, appear,
And sleep in darkness side by side.

I y"~A very interesting discovery of the re
xaaius of .tn an ient city has recently been
tunde in Eeuadtr. The ruins are situated at
tome ci^bt leagues from the city of Loja, in
the ccr.tre of the mountain called Tambu
bianco. Towards an angle of the north, in an
tjcuT.-ive plain, is to be seen a beautiful tem
1' e of 64 yard3 long and ten wide, with pillars
jperfectly worked and in good condition. To
tbe iouth i* seen a magnificent palace of 60
7 r N long, with a gateway, worked in the
~ mo style as the temple, spacious saloons and
..}? rimtnts, with enclosed baths, which con
veys the idea of gardens. To the east stand
several buildings, forming streets, which,
though of less magnificence, are of the same
material. The former populousness of this
city m iy bo estimated by the size of the two
Li.n'.heon? (.n each side, each at loa*t half a
?r rd league in extent, with places set apart
tor interring the dead. Tne government has
t ken measures t j have the ruins further ex
plored.

Da. C. M. Ji.ciso:t, Philadelphia?Dear Sir: 1
have been a sublrct of Dyspepsia, in its worst
form, for the la^t fivs years. Such was my condi
tion K>r twelve months that the physicians and all
who saw ma said 1 must die. While in this eon
ditlcn 1 was carried to the watering places in Vir
ginia, Tennessee, end Ncrth Carolina, butwai
not benefitted by any water to which I was taken.
While on my way home I stopped a week at R uth
erfordto:i, a small village In North Carolina, tc
try the effect cf some Chalybeate water in that
place. About the last of the week I went Into a
drug store to get some medicine for my child and
myself. There were several of the village physi
cians in the store, and one of them seemed to takf
some interest in tnv case, and, after asking roe
some questions, said he had betn a dyspeptic and
had b"en greatly benefitted by the use' of HOOF
LAND'S GERMAN BITTERS, prepared b\
you, and he insisted that I wcild try the Bitten
He also called the next day at my room, and in
sisted so much that I would try them that I asked
him to get me one bottle. He did It, and I com
menced taking It as directed, and 1 was more ben
efitted by it than all the water and medicine I had
ever taken.
After reaching home one of my neighbors came
to me for a prescription and medicine, (he a dys
peptic,) and I gave him nearly all the iintcrs 1
nail left, which effected much good in his case.
He has often calltMi on me for more of the sanm
kind of medicine, saying he was more benefited
by It thi a any other he had taken, but I have not
been able to get any more for h'.m or myself since;
will you, therefore, please skip mc a dozen o?
