.mixy its WOODLAND MUSIC. What sait'» tho hum of woodlands, The undertone of the air? Can fancy understand it, Or human words declare ? Mine can ; at least, I dream do, As 1 listen and compare. The trees, from leaves und branches, AH seem to whisker and srgh, t, 4 -As lovers might to lovers, Under the mooulit sky, As passionate and foolish— ■ • } Letting the world go by. The gross to the grass makes music, t And the wind in its current rolls, The sedges sigh to the willows, The flower with the flower condoles, Each in its little circle, As if they wore human souls. The tiniest life in the sunbeam, In the "pebble's cavern dark, In the ripple of the shallows, Where a straw may be nn ark— In the shelter of the mosses, In the crinkles of the bark. In every pulse and movement Of Nature's mighty breath, Enacts formrer and ever The tale of Life aud Death— Of Hope, and Struggle, and Effort, Of Life, aud Love, aud Death. There' s war among the myriads, That flutter, and float und crawl !— Thre's cruelty, and bloodshed, And agony 'mid them all— The strong consuming the feeble, The large oppressing the small. In their little world they suffer, As man iu his larger sphere ; Yet not, in God's great bounty Without some blessings clear, And the kindly compensations That balance a fate severe. Their voices, though we hear not, Keep time to the tune of Spring ; The bee in the rose is happy, And the moth upon the wing; Aud the worm has as much enjoyment As the birds that soar and sing.

Luck and Lahou. —Many people com plain of their bad luck, when they ought to blame their own want of wisdom and action. Mr. Cobden, a distinguished writer in Kngland, thus wroto about luck and labor : Luck is everything waiting for some thing to turn up. Labor, with keen eyes and strong will, will turn up something. Luck lies in bed, aud wishes the post man would bring him news of a legacy. Labor turns out at C o'clock, aud with busy pen or ringing hammer, lays the foundation of competence. Luck whines. Labor whistles. Luck relies on chances. Labor on character. Luck slips down to indigence. Labor strides upward to independence. forujant says that it may ' «ira, theatre, balls and "How fust they build houses now!" said 11.

IIPOFLANU'S GERMAN BITTERS Is composed of the pure juices (or, as they me medicinally termed Extracts) of Roots, llerba, and Barks, making a preparation, highly concen trated, and entirely fretfrum all alcoholic admixture of any kind. Hoofland's German Tonic Is a combination of all the ingredients of the BUters, with tho purest quality of Santa Cruz Rum. Orange, &c. making one of! the most pleas ant and agreeable remedies ever offered to the public. Those preferring a Medicine free from Alcoholic admixture, will use Hoofland's German Bitters. Those who have no objection to tho combina tion of the Bitters, as stated, will use IIOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC They are both equally good, and contain the same medicinal vutues, the choice between the two being a mere matter of taste, the Tonic being the most palatable. The stomach, from a variety of causes such ns Indigestion, Dyspepsia. Nervous Debility, etc. is very apt to have its functions deranged. The Liver, sympathizing as closely as it does with tlie Stomach, then becomes affected, the result of which is the patient suffers from several or more of the following discuses : Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles, Fulness of Blood to the Head, Acidity of the Stom ach, Nausea, Heartburn, Disgust for Food, Fulness or Weight in the Stomach, Sour Eructations, Sinking or Fluttering at the Pit of the Stom ach, Swimming of the Head, Hur ried or Difficult Breathing, Fluttering at the Heart, Choking or Suffocating Sensations when in a Lying Posture, Dimness of Vision, Dots or Webs before the Sight, Dull Pain in the Head, Deficiency of Perspiration. Yellowness of the Skin and Eyes, Pal Side, Back, Chest, Limbs etc. Sudden Flushes of Heat, Burning in the Flesh, Con stant Imaginings of Evil, and Great Depression of Spirits. The sufferer from these diseases should exercise the greatest caution in the selection of n remedy for his case, purchasing only that which he is as sured from his investigations and inquiries, pos sesses true merit, is skilfully compounded, is free from injurious ingredients, and lias established for itself a reputation for the cure of these diseas es.
