She Looked Higher. Mr. Swarm don't like it
much, I guess. She looked higher."
Looked Jiightr ? .Katy is handsome, no doubt ; well
educated, accomplished, stylish even, if you please,
But pray how high" should her widowed mother
look i W ould she marry her daughter to a seraph ?
It seems to me that there were no very encouraging
results from the connections that of old took place
between the sont of God" angles, as they are com
monly supposed to have been and the daughters of
men. Mrs. Swann should be satisfied it her daugh
ters find human husbands, should she not, and be
thankful that thev are not inhuman, instead of
grievine that they are not superhuman ?
" But this Mr. Williams is only a merchant; and
I think that the widow had somehow wished Katy to
secure a lawyer or a minister, if not somebody rich
enough to save them all from working.
Only a merchant, indeed ! My cousin Sarah,
there i3 a worse smell of unjust and snobbish aris
tocracy about that fleer of yours, in three words, than
m a whole room full of dukes. Only a merchant !
The question should be whether he is a Man !
But I don't mean that exactly. He has no posi
tion, lie is not secure in his business. He has only
commenced business a year ago."
Katy is wiser than her mother, cousin Sarah !
She didn't wish to marry a Position people who
marry a Position generally find it an Imposition, and
a pretty sad one. I happen to know Mr. "Williams,
and he and Katy are living a wise life. His earnings
are fair, and not enormous. He has chosen the
happiness of a home for his youth, humble though it
be, rather than to await alone for riches enough to
buy him a palace and a fashionable wife when he
shall be too old to enjoy the cne or to love the other
if there were to be either enjoyment or love in two
" Youthful home ! Who wants to live in a little
bit of a house and do one's own work?"
Ah, cousin Sarah ! you hanker after a suit of rooms
at the Clarendon, perhaps, or the Metropolitan; ac
cording to the wise distinction of the little girl, you
wouldn't live; you would board. A hundred dollars
a week would be nothing, would it ? There are too
many chances, cousin Sarah, that the husband who
would permit such fantastic doings would be nothing,
too. I tell you, women ought to marry Men, not
Dollars, nor Houses.
You don't care? You think Mrs. Swann was
right ? You think you wouldn't be found doing your
own housework? I tell you Mrs. Swann is a goose.
I dare say you don't care. And I'll tell every young
man I see that you don't care. You look higher,"
too, I presume. Remember that the fellew who
look higher " than was wise, in his star-gazing,
tumbled into a ditch and served him right. Go (in
the spirit) and spend an eveniag at John Williams'
house. See him come home, tired ; see him forget
weariness, vexation, and every thing but his happi
ness, in the bright atmosphere of his little library
an atmosphere brightened by the sweet presence of
his Katy more than by the pretty shaded study-lamp
-perfumed more by the love that lingers there than
by the bouquet of real live flowers, or the roses and
geraniums in the window. See them sit down together
and read the book that he has brought home, having
selected it because he thought it would please her.
Hear the sensible way in which they discuss it; he
dealing with the logic, man-like,' and she with the
profounder feminine intuitions, seeing and judging
the truth and falsehood, and letting the logic alone.
Hear her singing and him singing with her. See
the cosy supper-table. Consider the delicate plea
sures of the sociality which seems divinely ordained
to be the compensation for the coarseness inherent in
the idea of food the pleasant, chatty talk of the
home and foreign" events of the day the quaint
conceits which Williams sometimes utters in that dry
way of his the ringing laugh of sweet-voiced Katy.
Cousin Sarah, hold your tongue. Not a word.
Parties, theater concert, opera, all may go ! Not
that they are utterly bad, but if I were a woman, I
should say, Give me a Man for a husband and a
Home to live in, before all the money, and dress,
and big houses, and hotels, and flourish and flum
mery in the whole world. And if Mrs. Swann insists
on "looking higher" for her other daughter, she
had best begin forthwith to set traps to catch angels
for them, since Men won't satisfy her. -Life Illut
rated. A Pride of a Kitchen. A Paris correspondent
of the Express pens the following bagatelle : There
resides in the Rue de la Chausses d'Antin a worthy
lady who makes a single apartment in her house
more elegant than all the rest combined. This grand
apartment is the kitchen. Whenever this lady re
ceives company, all sorts of ingenious plans are
formed, and every description of little artifices em
ployed, to induce her guests, without actually asking
them, to have a peep at this den generally kept as
much as possible in the background, for obvious rea
sons, (nothing is so disgusting to a true epicure as
the smell of cookery.) In most houses, therefore, the
kitchen is as far distant from the drawing-room as
possible. In thit instance, on the contrary, the local
topography is so arranged that many persons wishing
to go out, mistake the door, and, just as they are
about hastily backing out, are accosted by the most
dazzling of cooks, who cries, with a smiling air, It's
the kitchen, Monsieur, (or Madame.) There's no
harm ! "Walk in, if you please !" By this tim ?, the
glance of the visitor has taken in all sorts of un
expected things hung around the room, and he is
induced to enter this curious boudoir kitchen. The
walls and the floor are composed of mosaic bricks of
numerovjs colors the prevailing being blue "and
white. Gas burners issue from rare and beautiful
china saucers, or burn through the artificial wicks of
antique lamps. The dressers and closets are covered
with burnished copper, and contain the thousand
and one utensils of the cuisine, all shining with daz
zling polish the kitchen girl being a Holland lass
who spares neither brick dust nor muscle in keeping
up the proud reputation for cleanliness of hcv country.
What is most surprising in this model kitchen, is to
see the saucepans and gridirons, bright as so many
new matches, hung up with rose-colored ribbons.
Evidently these utensils consume more ribbon than
even madame's bonnet ! A short time ago, the friends
of the proprietress of this unique establishment beg
ged her to give a breakfast in this elegant kitchen.
She consented, on' one condition; the guests should
themselves cook the breakfast they were to eat, and
afterward they were to wash the dishes and put every
thing back in the same order m which they tound it.
The stipulation was stoically accepted. Two ladies
who have four or five hundred thousand francs a year
to spend, the lady of an admiral, a duchess, and the
wives of two foreign ministers, were present on the
occasion, and took part in the novel proceedings.
The dish-washing efforts of these fashionable butter
flies must have been amusing."
Telegraph to Europe. We learn that orders
were received at the Navy Yard in Brooklyn, on
Saturday, to fit ou immediately the steamers JVia-
gara and Mississippi to proceed to England to assist
in laying down the submarine cable between New
foundland and Ireland. The JV lagara will probably
g&u first, as she is to take half the cable on board.
She is said to be the largest ship-of-war in the world.
The Mississippi is the most powerful paddle-wheel
steamer in our. Navy. She will proceed to England a
few weeks later, as she is designed only to attend the
JYiagara, so as in case of accident to take her in tow
and nroceed on the voyage. The English Govern
ment will also furnish two large ships, a propeller to I
carry the cable, and a paddle-wheel ship to accom
pany her, so ai to guard against accident The four
Bhips will proceed together to the middle of the
Atlantic; and there, joining the ends of the cable and
dropping it in the ocean, the English ships will start
for Ireland, while the American head for Newfound
land. It will be a new sight in this age, to see four
large ships-of-war thus meeting in mid-ocean not to
engage in battle, but to join in a peaceful effort to
unite the Eastern and Western hemispheres. Mr.
. Secretary Dobbin has taken a deep interest in the
success of this great enterprise, as he has shown by
ordering the two finest ships in the Navy on this
service. We doubt not that Mr. Toucey will carry
out the enlarged ideas of his predecessor. JS'ew

New Steamship Company. A new steamship line
is proposed to be established between San i rancisco
and New York. It is proposed to organize a Joint
Stock Company, with a capital stock of one million
dollars, to be divided into four thousand shares of two
hundred and fifty dollars each.
It is proposed to commence the enterprise by build
ing two steamships, one for the Atlantic and one for
tne .racinc oceans, eacn oi me ionowmg uuueusiuus,
viz: 425 feet keel and 54 feet beam, after the most
perfect models, and embracing all recent improve
ments, which add strength, security and beauty to
ocean steamships; to construct them with ample ac
commodations for 8000 pastengers and 1000 tons of
freight, the motive power to consist of two beam en
gines, with two sets of wheels, constructed in such a
style, and located in such a manner, as to obtain a
vast increase in speed inasmuch, that, it is confidently
Deaeved, tne passage between oan r rancisco anu xsew
York can be accomplished in fifteen days time. Late
improvements in engines and boilers will also be
adopted, by vhich the consumption ot tuel will be
very materially lessened thus enectmg an important
saving in this chief item of expense on the Pacific
The steamers can be built and placed on the route,
one at New York ard one at Panama, within nine
months from the time of their commencement, and
assessments will only be made as the construction of
the ships progresses.
It is proposed to establish but two prices of pas
sage, and at the following rates, viz: First Cabin
$150, Second Cabin $50; thus by the establishment
of a fixed scale of prices, the traveler will avoid the
disappointment md annoyance so often experienced
by the fluctuating rates of passage, and at a cost com
paratively small will be enabled to prosecute his jour
ney upon a ship of unexampled size, perfectly ven
tilated, having all the comforts of a first class hotel.
In order to identify this enterprise more fully with
the vital interests of our State, it is proposed to .obtain
as many shareholders as possible, and to give the
people of California the privilege of taking the entire
stock and as an inducement to the takiug of stock,
the following right is extended to each, viz: Every
certificate of stock of $'250, upon being presented at
either of the Company's offices, shall be entitled to
receive, each year, one second class ticket, and every
three shares of stock shall, in like manner, entitle the
holder to one first class ticket for a passage to ur from
New York or San Francisco, on any ships of the Com
pany. The holder of such ticket may use or sell the
same at his option, thus enabling him to realize an
immediate return of twenty per cent, upon the
TOW-BOATS TOR THE STRAITS OF MAGELLAN. A
writer in the Philadelphia Bulletin warmly advo
cates a line of tow boajs for the straits of Magellan.
The advantages of this passage in shortening the
voyage to the Pacific from 20 to 30 days, are well
known. Unfortunately, throughout the year, the
wind blows, with more or less violence, from the
west and northwest, so that it is almost impossible
for a square-rigged vessel, or anything but a quick
working schooner, to make head against the currents.
The consequence is, that a large majority of merchant
ships making tha passage to-California, the islands of
the Pacific, Chili, Peru, &c, are driven around the
Cape, where it is not uncommon to spend 20 days or
more, battling with the winds. To render the pas
sage by the Straits easy, and one eventually to be
chosen by all Pacific bound vessels, the writer thinks
2 powerful propeller tugs, 300 tons burthern and 250
horse power, would be sufficient for beginning. The
heaviest wind in t!:e Straits creates but little sea, so
that propellers can usually work with full power.
The time consumed in towing through 300 miles
would, of course, vary with the size of the vessel
towed. Three days are assumed as the average, with
an ordinary sized California packet; but running
day and night when the channel had become known,
the passage might be made in 48 hours.
The Mexican treaty had been rejected by the Sec
retary of State. Instructions have been given to Mr.
Forsyth to await instructions, and it is understooh
that a new treaty Till be framed, having for its
object the purchase o' Sonora and Sinaloa, whicd
would command the Gulf of California, and to which
it was supposed General Comonfort would agree.
Mr. Buchanan is s&i 1 to have given these views to his
Dreams. So far as we can judge, the succession of
our thoughts is regulated by the same laws of associa
tion as when we are awake. The objects which most
interest us when we are awake are those of which we
are wont to dream. The dreams of the melancholy
man are tinged with his peculiar temperament;
whereas the man or cheertul disposition, if in good
health, has ordinarily plea3ant dreams. The most
marked distinction between the succession 6f our
thoughts in dreaming and when awake, is in the fact
that when awake our associations are under the con
trol of the rational will ; but when dreaming this power
of will is suspended. Tais is the explanation of the
extravagance and incoherence of our thoughts and
conceptions. Ti;e suspension of the will of course
suspends the voluntary exercise of reason, judgment,
recollection, &c, thus leaving the associations to run
on unrestrained. Hence, in our dreams we bound
on, in thought, from one place to another, from scene
to scene, and oitn confound objects of very remote
times and countries. Our fancies are distorted, and
our train of ideas incoherent, because the directing
power is asleep; the will, or governing faculty, haa
for the time retired, and allows the other faculties to
indulge in a holiday or saturnalia. JV. Y. Times.

NOTICE. Whereas, it a ppears from an examination cf
the papers of Mr. Kuxton, ex-captain of the Protectorate
schooner Rob Roy, deceased on board the Caroline 1ort, dur
ing the passage of said vessel from Sydney to Tahiti, as well aa
from other particular sources:
1st, That said captain had taken, from the bark Julia Ann.
wrecked at the Scilly Islands, the sum of 310 sovereigns.
2d, That when the Rob Roy was wrecked on the Navigator
Islands, said Kuxton declared that he had not saved more than
42 sovereigns out 310J- formerly taken, of which fact there i3
great doubt, since a great number of articles of smaller value
3d, That it is suspected that said Ruxton has embezzled, for
his own profit, a part of the sun saved from the Julia Ann,
wrecked a second time with thRob Roy ;
The " Commandant Particular," Commissioner of H. I. M
in the Society Islands, has ordered that an inquest be made ly
the Justice of Peace, acting ad interim as J udge of Instruction,
upon thp facta above stated.
From said inquest, during which Mr. Charlton, second in
command of the Rob Roy, did not appear, by reason of absence,
neither the crew, and whose testimony was very important, it
That said Ruxton made, at Sydney, excessive expenses, out
of proportion with his situation and with what he was known 1 1
possess when he left Tahiti.
That, in answer to one of the witnesses inquiring from him
how he was able to spend so freely he declared that he had re
ceived money as assistance from a Scotch society naraeJ
That, after the demise of said Ruxton, 69 sovereigns and four
dollars, as well as some goods and jewelry, were foun? ia bis
possession, the origin of which cannot be explained.
In consequence, the Commissioner of II. I. M. has decided
that the present abstract should be published in the otficial
newspaper, so that all interested parties may present their
claims upon the succession of said Ruxton, delivered into the
hands of the British Consul, who will preserve it during one year
from this date.
