My days pass pleasantly away;
My nights are blest with sweetest sleep,
I feel no symptoms of decay—
I have no cause to mourn or weep ;
My foes are impotent and shy,
My friends are neither false nor cold,
And yet, of fate, I often sigh—
I am growing old.
My growing talk of olden times ;
My growing thirst for early news ;
My growing apathy to rhymes :
My.growing love of easy shoes;
My growing hate of crowds and noise ;
My growing fear of taking cold.
All whisper in the plainest voice— .
I am growing old.
I'm growing fonder of my stair;
I'm growing dimmer in the eyes;
I'm growing fainter in my laugh ;
I'm growing deeper in my sighs;
I'm growing careless of my dress;
I'm growing frugal of my gold ;
I'm growing wise ; I'm growing—yes---
I'm growing old.
I see it in my changing taste;
I see it in my, changing hair;
I see it in my growing waist;
I see it in my growing heir;
A thousand signs proclaim the truth,
As plain us truth was ever told,
That even in my vaunted youth,
Pm growing old.
Ah, me ! my very laurels breathe
The tale in my reluctant ears,
And every boon the hours bequeath.
But makes me debtor to the years.
Even flattery's honeyed words declare
The secret she would fain withhold,
And tell me in, “Ilow young you are PI
I'm growing old.
Thanks for the years ! whose rapid flight
My somber mese too sadly sings;
Thanks for the - gleams of golden light
That tint the darkness of their wings;
The light that beams from out the sky,
Those heavenly mansions to unfold,
Where all are blest and none may sigh,
growing old P,
A LADY OF THE OLDEN TIME
Under this title, Whittier, "the Quaker poet,"
supplied the following clever copy of verses for
an agricultural association, at its annual fair,
somewhere in New England :
One morning of the lirst sad Fall,
Poor Adam and his bride
Sat in the shade of Eden's xvall—
. But OA the outer side.
She blushing in her fig-leaf suit
For the chaste garb of old ;
He sighing o'er his bitter fruit
For Eden's dupes of gold.
Behind them smiling in the morn,
Their forfeit garden lay; '
Before them wild with rock and thorn,
The desert stretched away.
They heard the uir above them fanned,
A light step on the sward,
And lo! they saw before them stand s
The Angel of the Lord !
"Arise !" he said. "Why look behind
When.hope,is all before,
A patient mind and willing hand
Yoiir loss may yet restore ?
"I leave with yore* spell whose power
Can make the desert glad,
And call around you fruit and flower
As fair as Eden had.
"I clothe your hands with power to lift
The curse from off your soul t
Your very doom shall seem a gift,
Your less a gain through toil.
"Go, cheerfully as yon humming.bees,
To labor as to play ;"
While glimmering over Eden's trees,
The angel passed away.
The pilgrim+ of the world went forth,
Obedient to the word,
And found,'where'er they tilled the earth•
A garden of the Lord.
And thorn trees cast their evil fruit,
And blushed with plum and pear ;
And seeded grass and'trodden root
Grew sweet beneath their care.
We share our primal parent's late,
And in our turn and day
Look back on Eden's sworded gate,
As sad and lost as they.
Enchaating&l! thy form so fair /
In playful &earns around me dances ;•
Thy smile so bright), so free from care,
Thy dimpled cheeky-thy jet black hair,
My heatt entrances.
But oh ! those eyes, thoselovely eyes,
With joy and innocence gleaming-
The winged light scarce swifter flies
Than do the glances from those eyes,
With pleasure' beaming.
Pa woo thee, maiden, were•it not
That wooing thee might prove bewilderin'
Pd won.thee, maiden, were it not
For this one thing—a wife I've got,
And six small children;

An Awful Case of Itydrophobia.
We published recently an account of a
case of this horrible disease in Roxbury,
Mass. The following statement will be
read with interest. It is from the pen
of Dr. Windehip, the father of the young
American "Samson," Dr, Geo. B. Wind
"The disease termed hydrophobia," is .
of so rare occurrence and so appalling a,
nature, that I have deemed it proper to
comply with your request, and that of
many others, to .submit to the press a
brief account of the case which has so
recently occurred in Roxbury.
"Mr. Thomas Dascomb, well known
to our citizens as the proprietor of the
hat and bonnet bleachery in Webster
Block, was bitten Jane the Bth by a fa
vorite pointer. On the day following he
sent for me, not, as he expressed himself
that he had any idea that the dog was
rabid, but because the region of the
wound (his wrist) was painful. The dog
he said, was cross, the effect of a recent
severe whipping, and had that very day
bitten a young man who had previously
inflicted punishment. The friends of
Mr. Dascomb were very anxious to have
the dog killed immediately. To this I
remonstrated, unless he and his friends
were fully satisfied that the dog was not
mad, he and :they might..be in a fearful
state of apprehension for a long period.
"My advice to him was ,to put the dog
into a secure place where he could have
food and water passed to him , without
danger, and keep and watch him a suffici
ent length of thne to be satisfied as to
his freedom from hydrophobia. This
course was adopted, but the place of con
finement—a dark cellar—was improper,
both in regard to the health of the ani
mal and for means of convenient obser
vation. Within ten days the dog died,
and, as Mr. Dascomb said to me subse
quently, he lad no doubt from poison
secretly administered, or else from the
effects 'of the severe beating and subse
quent cellar confinement
"The wounds upon his wrist healed
gradually under,the treatment indicated,
and to me he expressed himself in no.
fear of hydrophobia.
"On the 11th instant, at G a. m., about
eight weeks subsequent to the day on
which he was bitten, I was summoned to
visit Mr. Dascomb. I found him upon
the bed in a half reclining position, his
eyes protuberant and glaring, counte
nance anxious, voice husky and tremu
lous, pulse ene hundred and thirty,
tongue dry, but not much furred. A first,
glance convinced me that my patient's
doom was sealed. To my inquiry re
specting his case, he quickly pointed to
the scar upon his left wrist, and said with
emphasis, 'This, doctor, will end me.' I
endeavored to modify his prediction by
encouraging words and manner, and pro
ceeded to interrogate him as to his symp
tons. . He stated that the previous night
, he felt some pain and stiffness in the
wrist, and darting pains from the wound,
extending up the arm to the chest 'I
have now, also,' said he, 'a dizzy pain in
the head, and, doctor, I have been per
fectly unable to swallow since two o'clock
"Wishing to discover how far the ex
isting symptoms as described by him
might be ascribed to what is termed ner
vous excitement; the result of long ap
prehensions, I said t'o him, 'My dear sir,
I can hardly believe that you have really
lost the ability to swallow. Supposing
you should sit up in bed and take a lit
tle of this tea.' Come now, said I, 'sit
up and try with a will, and I have'
doubt but you will snceeed.'
"He did as I desired, seemed to sum
mon all his resolution, and in quite an
audible voice exclaimed, 'Now, Doctor,
give me the'tea..- He received the cup,
passed it rapidly to his, lips, made' a vig
orous attempt to swallow, failed, the
liquid was ejected,. and he sank back ex
"I was now fully confirmed in. my, pri,
mary opinion, and this immediately I im-
parted to his family.
"It seems unnecessary, and would be
still more painful to the reader; to de
scribe minutely the distressing sham:
teristics of this awful malady.' Let i
suffice, then, to state that- the progress
of the disease was marked by the alter
nation of drowsiness, spasms,. starting,
shuddering at the sound or motion of
liquids, frothy mucous expectoration,
spasmodic groaning, not unlike the half
suppressed bark of a dog, traversing the
bed upon the hands and knees, accom
panied with. a pawing motion of the
hands• at the bed-clothing,, and hiding
the face in. them. The expression of
the countenance was such as I have never
witnessed• before, nor can- language. por
"On Sunday morning at half-past
eleven a violent convulsion occurred,
which, at twelve M.—thirty-six hours
from the primary attack—terminated in
a happy release by death.
"The treatment consisted mainly in
administering anodynes by enema and
subcutaneously, and with decided al•
though temporary relief. The smell, or
sight even, of ether or chloroform would
instantly induce a spasm."

"Daum HILL PARK."—Baltimore is to
have a grand city Part in time, having
purchased "Druid Hill" at a cost of
8500.000 for that purpose. The grounds
have been for nearly 150 years in the
Rogers family, and were occupied at one
time by Col. Nicholas . Rogers of the 11.
S. army, during the Revolution, an aid
to General Du Condray and afterwards
to Baron De Kalb: He was a man of
great taste, and had a passion for land
scape gardening, which has ,been pre
served on the place and in the family.—
Druid Hill is famous for its fruit trees,
and especially for its pears. There are
forty thousand trees, of which ten thou
sand are dwarfs and all in bearing, and
more than six hundred varieties of pears,
costing twenty-five years of labor and an
investment of $50,000. This old family
homestead is to be preserved in its in
tegrity as a:public park, and to be known
forever as the "Druid Hill Park."
A.ND Ho* IT is Mgt.
Inquiry is lifter. made, "what means are
adopted by counterfeiters to produce
such perfect file similes of bank notes ?''
The modus operandi is this a new note
of the kind to be imitated is procured
and saturated with sweet oil. This is
laid face downwards upon a steel plate,
which has previously received a very
thin coat of wax. The oil renders the
note so transparent that itis easy to go ov
er every line with a very fine needle ; this
of course produces a faint tracing upon
the wax. The wax beneath every line is
then removed with a graving tool, and
acid poured over the plate, which only
takes effect upon those parts from Which
the wax has been removed, thus trans
ferring the tracing from the wax to the
steel beneath. The plate is then-clean
ed, and the engraving finished as in or
dinary steel engravings.

POISONED PAPER.—The Philadelphia
Inquirer mentions the case of a young
lady in that city, who
_for years had a
painful and loathsome disease which
threatened to be fatal. Suspecting ac
cumulative poison, her food and drink
were frequently analyzed, without de
tecting any. At last it was discovered
that the paper on the walls of her room
was colored tint% with the aid of arsenic;
and that. the vapor from this was the
cause of her illness. , This important
scientific developement in relation to
green paper was made known years ago
in France and has been published every
whefe ; yet 'many of our citizens still
persist in its rise, regardless of its poison
ous attributes, when the trims breath is
notmore deadly in its effects.
There are, about thirty species of
tobacco, all posessing nearly the same
