Fee, how the world is heavinsr in herjoy.
How rival Kingdoms rise in glad salute
And sister cities meet in fond embrace,
America on ancient Albion smiles;
Europe from Italy's oft sunny eyes, ' '
And Asia from poor India's troubled strand, 7
Into the Xew World's leaping heart look down
And whimper in her bending; ear "all hail!"
New York, the brilliant city of the Franks,
Receives unto her breast with warm embrace.
And showers her smile on London's hoary walls:
Greets with a shout old Edinboro'town, '
And with her sister cities. South and Y est,
Thunders a hearty welcome round the domes
That gild the cities of the Northern bear.
While roll its echoes far along the plains
Where Asia's hordes in savaate conflict bleed
Hamburg from Baltic's rough and rocky shore
Sends her free greeting to a Nation free;
And venerable Uome, arising slow.
Can scarce believe that in this wicked age
A miracle is wrought without her aid.
And wonders if, as in the days of old.
The Gods again have come upon the earth, '
While minor cities of the world behold

Proud Kings, and Emperors and smiling Queens
Extend their ungloved palm in earnest grasp
To take our young Republic by the hand;
While dut beclouded Ministers of State
Tbro'out the hemispheres, both old and new.
This day upon the Ocean's rim have met,
And in the glad rejoicings of the hour
Unite to say. "let this one simple cord.
Which Ocean now at last is forced to hold.
Be to us all a golden link of love.
That henceforth, we, as rulers, all may hear
Tha honest beatings of each other's hearts.
And yield our Nations and their sacred rights.
To that perpetual and most holy Peace
Which this day dawns upon a startled world."
Literature and Marriage.
"From the . days of the poet Job,
whose wife was the original Mrs. Cau
dle, down to Socrates and Xanthippe,
and so on down to Byron, and finally to
Dickens,' matrimonal' unhappinesss has
ever attached to literary men;" Exchange.
The peraon who wrote the above is a
mendacious ignoramus, and deserves to
be married to a she-wolf, for attempting to
make it appear that there is necessarily
some antagonism between literature and
matrimony. "Matrimonial unhanpiness
has ever attached to literary men," has it?
The assertion is so palpably false that we
are almost ashamed to quote the facts that

known, we suspect it would be seen that
it is not necessary for a man to be a
scholar and an author to make an im
prudent marriage. All marriages out of
the literary class are not necessarily ' hap
py ones, any more than all ; marriages in
those classes are. necessarily unfortunate;
but other men do not attract so much at
tention as your novelists, poets, and so
forth ; cor - are common men fond of
making their domestic woes subjects for
their pens and tongues. It may be true
that literary men do wrong to marry ;
but it is true only in the sense that all
men do wrong to marry which seems to
have been the deliberate opinion of so
good a man and so profound a philospher
as Thales. Cut what an idea it is, that
the very first civil and religious institu
tion made by God after the creation of
man and woman, and one necessary for
the virtuous continuance of humanity,
should not only be unadapted to the
condition of the human race, but should
be found specially calculated to develop
misery for the most cultivated members
of that race.
A word or two for poor Xanthippe,
whose name has become a convertible
term for shrew and scold. Perhaps there
is nothing but justice in the common es
timate of her character. But had she no
cause to be angry with her husband ?
Socrates was an astonishing man, but as
tonishing men generally make but indif
ferent husbands, and your great . reformer
is too often a small creature at home. So
crates had "a mission," and he went about
Athens questioning and cross-questioning
people until he had made a nuisance of
himself, and enemies of all men, save a
few philosophic bores, and finally ho
was got rid of through means of a dose of
hemlock, which he had brewed for him
self. Thi3 was a very reprehensible pro
ceeding on the part of the Athenians, but
it was not quite so unprovoked as is gen
erally supposed. Now, a man cannot re
form the world, and take care of his own
household. Instead of minding his own
business, which was that of a statuary,
or stone-cutter, he must needs take to re
modeling blockheads, a most dangerous
pursuit, a3 it bears immediately upon the
feelings of the great majority of men.
Then it is not remunerative. Socrates got
low in the world. lie was poor indeed.
He hadn't a shirt to his back, and it is a
matter of record that he went barefoot in
the dead of winter. It is cot at all proba
ble that his family fared better than him
self. It is cot the way with philosiphers
to treat others better than they treat them
selves. They think their duty to society
requires them to look very sharp after a
liberal supply of butter for their own
bread, which bread is always of the very I
best of flour, and canitallv made at
other people's expense. " Mrs. Socrate3
probably bore with this state of things
as long as she could bear with it, but
when the house rent long remained un
paid, when the butcher, the
grocer, were sent away emptv, when her
vriuuuue cuiiajioou ior mo want oi suste-

her husband a piece of her mind, renew-
mg the gilt Iroquently, and. as &o crates
happened to have the speaking and writ-
ing portion of Athenian Eociety on his
side, they gave her a bad character, which
ha3 endured like that which limey did es
gave to Cleon. There is, indeed, nothing
like a bad character for permanence. It
"wears" lonz and "washes" welL That
Xanthippe wa3 only, at the worst, assert-
ing the real "rights" of woman, is plain
on the face of things, and we have the ev-

Many people, the Philadelphia Argusl

nothing but the floating opinions and
whims of men, about which sober mind

They will say.it don't make a cent's dif-
ferenca who is elected, or what party

Fight with the Kaws. Sheriff God
dard gives us the following particulars of
an affray which occurred between two
Kaw Indians and a white man, residing
on Big John creek, four miles east of
Council Grove. .
On Thursday last, about ten o'clock A.
M., two Kaw Indians entered the house
of a white settler and Eat down on a bed
where lay a sick child. The man ordered
them to leave, but they refused to do so.
The white man then took up a poker,
whereupon the Indians drew their bowie
knives and prepared for battle.' The wife
of the settler then handed her husband a
loaded gun, which he took and fired at
one of the Indians while in the act of
raising his hand. The ball passed through
his arm, striking him in the mouth and
knocking out several of his teeth ; where
upon both Indiana sprang upon him, in
flicting several severe, but, it is hoped,
cot mortal wounds. The wife, catching
up her child, fled from the house, pursued
by one of the Kaws, who wounded her
with his tomahawk. She, however, made
good her escape. The Indians then took
five horses and a wagon, belonging to the
settler, to their village called Big John,
and it was reported that they had killed
some of the settler's cattle, and were in
pursuit of him hunting him through the
neighborhood he having taken refuge at
The Baxxeb. Our neighboring coun
ty, Madison, appears, thu3 far, to be enti
tled to claim the 44 banner" not having
cast a single vote for the Bill English
abortion ! Well done, Madison ! We
are assured by those who have the best
means of information, that not one-half ol
the legal votes of the county were cast at
the election. This was mainly owing to
the unprecedented rain ; but in part, also,
to the fact that there were but half as
many voting precincts as there usually
have been, and ought to be. Florence

Health. There has been considerable
sickness, for some weeks past, in this
vicinity mostly ague and kindred com-
plaints, brought on by the unusually wet

andas a general rule, the attacks have been
rather light yielding readily to medical I

Nothing has occurred since the organi
zation of this Territory, so advantageous
to those contemplating emigration and
investment in Kansas, as the recent, and,
we are forced to admit, present tightness3
of the money market. Kansas offers the
same soil, the same productions, the same
climate, and the same markets that she
offered last year; and, in addition, she
now offers her broad acres and means of
living at much lower rates. Even a year
ago it was an object to invest and to set
tle within her borders ; how much more,
then, of an object it is now, when, from
the scarcity of money, everything is fifty
per cent, lower than it was then. Besides
this, our future policy, as -regards our, do-j
mestxc institutions, has recently become
settled, and the unalterable determination
of the people to make Kansas a free State,
has been placed most emphatically upon
record ; this, of itself, is enough to make
it a great place for the investment of capi-
tal, either in the way of speculation or of
actual settlement But when property,

for a handsome return on invested capital,

we wish our. protest against it to be as
prompt and persistent as the effort is per
severing to accomplish that dangerous
project. To dissolve our present organiza
tion seems to us a sheer tempting of fate.
It is a staunch barricade against the ad
vances of tyranny. It is our only engine
of defense. It has ever been the stay
which prevented us from falling upon
destruction. It is an instinct with life.
dj wuicn trie people, destitute ot a leader, l
and ignorant of tactics, are able to protect
themselves. - It rose up in its place spon
taneously to meet our fearful exigency,
as great men are said to be born for the
times in which they live. It is the growth
of a necessity which has cot yet ceased
to exist; and if now unnaturally dis-
membered, its previous work may have
een in vain. , For devotion to it our
martyrs have perished. The wrongs they
resisted are not vet riehted thev are cot
yetavengedof the power which destroyed
them. The x ree State sentiment i3 the
genius of Kansas. It has hitherto led a
charmed life. Abiding in the hearts of
our neonls. it will ever ha invincih.fi. in-
destructible while they cherish it But it
requires the devotion of those whom it
devotedly serves. - We must not raise up
a trial to cripple its power. If we would
be free we must cot suffer the love of
party, as such, to array inferior elements
against each other, divert the contest from
the main issue, and inaugurate a fratricidal 1
policy at the moment when victory seems
propitious to us on the field of our hardly
fought battle. If we are to suffer no
m0re assaults, if indeed the liberties in
defence of which we invoked the aid of
that unit of Free State brotherhood, into
which tho Territory resolved itself, are
yielded us, let us still suffer a little delay
while we secure those liberties, doubly
dear since they cost us so much.
If it be conceded by the Administration
that the. people of Kansas have repudi-
ated the premium offered them for dis-
honesty and rejected the " proposition"!
and the Constitution together, let us con-
sider what we have still to do, what that!

We think that that which we have
first to do, will prove more difficult than
all we have accomplished. It is to wait:
until we have
sufficient population to
send one representative to Congress, we
must postpone our next steps. Not that
the delay of our admission is irksome of
itself. We should be content to avoid
for a time the responsibility and expense
of a State government. But as a party
to wait, our more active labor suspended,
our object removed to, though we trust
not a remote, yet an indefinite distance,

It twinkles and blows like an angel's eye, '
And the sky is blue and the snow is white.
And merrily blows the wind by night.

And it speaks to my soul cf the good and fair.

And merrily blows the wind by night.
And some there are whose haughty hearts.

No ray of sunlie ht enters in.
Cold, like the snow, but not so white
Y hue the merry wind shakes the pall ot nig at.
This life of ours is wild unrest.
And then the sod is over us prest.
And Light and shadow, and joy and woe.
And merrily on the winds do blow:
And the self-same stars that shine to-night.
Will shineon our graves when we are gone.
And the snow will cover us tranquil and white.
And the musical wind blow merrily on ;
For the sky is blue, and the snow is white.
And merrily blows the wind by night I
Shine on thou beautiful Star, shine on.
In thv brilliant beauty, bold and bright !
For the world in darkness waits the dawn.
And merrily blows the wind by night;
Let hearts grow cold that once were glad.
And eves, once bright, rrow dim and sad.
