' ' r A Twilight Reverie.
The ore io "trie west boras low;
A fading gleam ol light.
Only remains o? the crimson glow
That made hair heaven so bright;
And ? ?ie weary day in her shroud or gray,
signs oat her life on the breast of night.
The fire on my hearth burns low;
Beside Its glimmering light,
I dream of that sunset long ago,
When all my heaven seemed bright.
Bnt since that day, with each sunset ray.
r ve longed to die in the gloom or nignt.
The fire or my ure burns, low ;
And through the darkening night,
Strange shadowy shapes flit to and iro,
Awaiting my spirit's; flight.
And these shadowy things shew glistening
To bear me aw^y erejthe morning light
THE SI FAL OF NIAGARA.
Tlie Great Cataran tn South America
IV??rly Eight Hundred Feet Fall
' A Column of Snow White Foam.
Mr. Richard Brown writes to the London
Times, on the 2 o th ult:
In the month of April iast, a waterfall of
most unusual height was discovered on the Po
tora, a tributary ol the Essequebo River, by
Mr. C. B. Brown, of the Geological Survey ol
British Guiana. Being shorter provisions, and
a groat distance from his boats. Mr. Brown
was cot able to devote more than a couple of
hours to the examination.ot the falls, which,
bj hasty barometrical observation, be found to
be nearly nine hundred feet In height, the
breadth of the river at the top of the falls
being one hundred yards, and its depth fif?
teen leeu On his return to Georgetown, in
cons?quence o? the strong desire expressed by
the community that a careful surrey should
be made of the falls without delay, Mr. Brown
was Instructed by the Governor to proceed at
once to the falls for that purpose, accompa?
nied by ; Slr G. Young, Mr. Charles Mitchell
apdMr.'Klng. The result-of their Journey ls
embodied In the Inclosed article, published in
a- Demerara paper ol the 3d Instant, which
perhaps you will'deem of sufficient interest to
Insert in the columns of your widely-circulated
Sir George Young gives the following detail?
ed description of the cataract to a Georgetown
^?lt?ih^gn i ?? anxious that Mr. Brown, as a
discover ot the Great Kaietenr Fall, and the
director to the successful expedition ?hieb we
were permitted to accompany, should have 11IC
telrrng of bia own.story, yet I can understand
that rda friends in Georgetown will be anxious
to hear at once of bis success. The fall has a
clear descent, according to barometrical ob?
servations taken simultaneously by Mr. Brown
at the bottom, and by my collette, Mr, Mitch?
ell, at tho tap, ot 750 feet. Above, the Potaro
?Uder smoothly in a slight depression of the ta
.olo hi conglomerate sandstone, and disappears
over the edge In a body which we estimated
at eighty vards in width, and of depth uncer?
tain in the centre, but shallowing rapidly
toward either bank. When Mr. Brown dis?
covered i he fall in April, tbe rocky channel
waa completely covered, and the stream must
haye han a width ol at least one hundred
yards. At presentlt ls diminishing in volume,
and. as the Indians assured us, will continue
to- do BO till October, when only the central
?md deeper portion, about one-third ol the
whole, will remain. The best time, therefore,
for a visit io in soring, at the end ol what ap?
uesta to be the rainy season of this elevated
Aa we saw thc fall I cannot imagine any?
thing mere beantiral. The central "portion,
which" ia never diy, forms a small horseshoe or
i'C-entaring angle! and the water in this part
preserves ita consistency for a short distance
from tho ledg \ Bat everywhere else, and hero
riso, at a few lett from the top, all semblance
of water disappears; it breaks np, or. blossoms
into>tUie toiin or spray, which descends in the
well-known rocket-like forms of the Staubbacb
and similar waterfalls, but multiplied a thou?
sand. Mmes, m to a small dark pool, over a
Bemi-etrcular curtain of precipice deeply hol?
lowed by tbe action of the spray. Tbe cavern
b?ihmd ?be fall is tbe borne of thousands of
avranows, which issue from it in the morning,
and may be seen returning in their multitudes
at. night. . The fall itself is one vast descending
column of a fine dry looking, snow-white sub?
?tan ce, bearing aresemblacein color and consis?
tency to tbe anow of an avalanche, but surpass?
ing all avalanches I bave ee. n in size and in the
beauty of the forms taken by tbe material of
tte tul. Bainbowe of great splendor were ob
Birved, one from tbe front of tbe fall in tbe
ir. orn mg, one from tbe summit io tbe after?
noon; buc this last reverted, forming a colored
loop or xisg. into which tbe whole mass Beam?
ed to precipitate itself and disappear, and dart
oat underneath, black and foaming, at the
gorge and outlet of the pool.
.Un carefully workiog ont the mean result of
Ave separate observations taken simultane-,
ouely at the top and bottom of the fall, Mr.
Brown found that they gave the total heieht of
tbe perpendicnl r fall and cataract as 817ieet
The depth of tbe cataract waa subsequently
token at tbe edge of the pool on tbe western
side; by aneroid barometer (itbsing impossi?
ble to carry a large barometer to tbe f jot of
.'.be tali,) and found to be 81 feet, making the
1. sight of tbe perpendicular fall 736 feet The
width of the river 200 yards above the fail was
134 yards, and the greatest depth 15 feet 2
jaches, .5 feet lees than at high water.
NEW TOME'S MAN MILLINER.
The Mysteries of Women's Dress-Lao.
reis Pinched from the Brows of the
.Itma.7 not bc generally known that lhere
axe half a dozen dressmaking establishments
In. New York where the sewing upon dresses
is .almost entirely performed by men, although
they, are not visible to the ladies who call to
give their orders.
Three doors west o? Broadway, on Ninth
street, ie the flourishing establishment of
ntaordressmaker and costume designer, Mon
sieur Moschcowitz, a young Hungarian. His
place is elegantly furnished, and on your arri?
vai Misa Russ eil, an American, and the junior
partner In the house, receives you and takes
?our orders, or gives you information,
er j few dresses are to be seen; none
are on exhibition. But those that are
in the makers' hands are executed In
a. style equal to Worth's own designs,
for Moschcowitz was a pupil of that world
renowned man-milliner, and bis lather also
followed tbe business at Wurtemberg. The
second arid third floors are the workrooms of
the operatives who execute Mooch cow liz's de?
signs. - They are all burly, strong men, Ger?
mana,; Prussians, Poles and Hungarinos. They
Ei: on stools, not chairs, and their scissors,
thread, wax and other appliances are deposit?
ed on the floor by their sides. They work by
the piece, and'earn from $20 to $30 dollars a
week. Only the basting is done by band; tbe
sewing machin?e, of which they have a variety
in one room, work the seams. Each maa
bastes bis dress and prepares lt for fitting;
and, when fitted, finishes il with raplditv at all
points. Where women are employed, two
dozen are often found upon a dress, working
pl?ce-meal at Ifs several parts. Women, from
want ol training, ara rarely perfect In the
trade.'.' Some will excel In one or two depart?
ments and be deficient in others. * . - *
The prices obtained by the mee for making a
dress .vary with the material. A figured or?
gandie was shown, completely finished in eve?
ry way In a day and a quarter, with hems,
bands, trimming of waist and drapery, high in
the neck, with bretelles over the bosom, and
bows, Ac. The price was $50. The price paid
to the maker, independently of the cutting
and sewing-machine work, was $8 50. He
was a grim, grizzly old fr "ow of sixty. For a
plain Bilk dress a man .?ceives $7, and for
one trimmed from $15 to $28, according to the
work upon it. The work, when finished, has
a most elegant and artistic precision, being
superior in appearance. The piping ls made
by an ingenious machine invented by Mosch?
cowitz, as an attachment to the sewing ma?
chine. - une ls shown attached to a Wilcox A
Gibbs.'? single-thread machine, but it is said to
work Just ap well on the double-stitchers.
Another Invention of Moschcowitz"?, the friz?
zling machine, also ls seen. It pays out the
blas edee ot a piece of silk, and at the same
time Picures it by a stitch from further ravel?
ling. Tiiis ls also a sewing machine attach?
ment. Both inventions have been patented.
Moschcowitz ls known all over the United
States by tho leaders el lashlon, and som? ol
his costumes have gone to turope In the out?
fits or the wives of ministers and attaches to

That any sic! man surv-.vei; the treatment
o? fifty years ago, mest be considered aprooi
tbat teman beings axe very bard to kilt
The lancet, calomel, cantbarldeB and drastic pur?
gatives were then the order of the day. The phy?
sician played mto the hands or the apothecary,
and the unio-tunate patient was drenched morn?
ing, noon and night with prostrating medicines.
We live in a more rational and conscientious era.
The importance of supporting Nature in its conflict
with disease ls now understood. Complaints in
themselves weakening are no longer aggravated
by artificial depletion. They are met with TONICS
that rally the vita: powers and enab'e them to de?
feat the enemy. Chief among these allies of Na?
ture, in its battles with sickness, is
Tbl B wonderful vegetable restorative is the Bheew
anchor ol the feeble and debilitated. As a cordial
for the aged and decrepid it has no equal among
stomachics. As a remedy for the nervous weakness
to which tte tender ses are especially shbject, lt
ls superseding every other stimulant and nervine,
in all climates, tropical, temperate or frigid, lt
acts as a specific in every species of disorder
which undermines the boufly strength and
breaks down the animal spirits. Wherever lt
is introduced li becomes a standard article
-a medicinal staple. Druggists, although their
profit upon lt ls small, find lt absolutely
necessary to keep* preparation for which
everybody inquires, and for which nobody
will accept a substitute, lt is to-day the most
popular medicine m the civilized world.'
Extensively as it is advertised, its best ad?
vertisement ls the beneficial result which
uniformly follows its use. Every bottle sold in?
sures the sale of at jeasx half a dozen more. Un?
like other stimulants, it braces and fortifies the
system without exciting undue cerebral action,
The cheering effect which it produces upon the
mind is not momentary, bat permanent. There ls
no subsequent depression. It does not, ae is the
case with all other stimuli beget a cm mg for ex?
citants. On the other hand, *t soothes and cains
the Dew es, com Dining st range as the anomaly may
seem, thequalities of a sedative and gentle ano?
dyne with those o? a tonic ao? lo vigoran t.
The perfect purity or all its ingredients, their
admirable adaptation to the purposes they
are intended to subserve, the jnoicloas pro
portons in walch they are com tin erl, and
the scientific skin with which they are blend?
ed, render this famous articie at once the
most potent and the most harmless or ail known j
tonics and alteratives.
