THE DAILY EVENING 'TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY, JULY 9, 1868.
The Lire of a louf.
I. TBS BUD.
Clone within a downy cover
Hare At rest I lie,
Half awake and half in slumber
While the storms go bf.
Sometimes vague impatient strivings
Stir my life within;
Hopes of Imion something worthy,
Longing to begin.
Then again a soft contentment
Uroodeth o'er my state;
When the time comes I am ready;
Until then I wait.
II. THE LBAFLKT.
Is this then life ? 'Tis glorious, so fair !
The solt sweet breezes playing round our
The Summer fragrance growing everywhere,
The happy birda low cooing in their nest.
What meant the fear with which we put on
It is all good, and hope comes after joy;
Come anything in this delightsome strife,
Storms cannot daunt us, sunshine cannot
III. SUMMER LEAP.
Kiss me, kiss me, kiDgly sun,
Till I glow with crimson light,
Till along my veins shall run
Liquid lustre glistening bright.
Iet thy touch so piercing sweet
Hold me clone and thrill me through,
Till I faint with lauguM heat,
Till for rest from thee I sun;
Iftar nie not, O king of light !
It me die within thy sight.
IV. AUTUMN LEAF.
I wonder what has vanished from the world;
It was so bright a little while ago,
And now we leaves upon the brauuues curled
Hang wearily, just swaying to aud fro.
The sun shines on, the crnel biting sun;
He will not vail one smile to ease our pain:
What matter that, so his great course is ruu 1
The subjects sutler, but the king must reign,
We are too weary even to complain.
The desperate clutch at the last weak hold
Grows looser aud looser and looser;
The dizzying leap into depths untold
Comes closer and closer aud closer.
Drawn troua below,
Where shall we vanish to ?
How shall we go ?
Leaving the upper air,
Fallen on dull despair.
Here we lie low.
Let roe sleep, it is so sweet to slumber,
All of sweetness that remaineth still;
Swift the drenching rains and frosts of winter
Rid the earth of worn-out things of ill.
It may be some good there was within us
May survive this discipline of pain;
May not die, but change its outward sub
stance, May revive in other leaves again.
The English House or Lords.
HOW THE I'EEKS AKE INDIFFERENTLY REGARDED.
Itondon Correspondence of Boston Post.
The House of Lords has so far faded out of
public attention that it stands a chance ere
loDg of having its debates known only in their
tendency. For a loDg time past only three of
the daily papers have professed to treat the
upper House npon the same footing in this
leepect as the Commons, aud the three have
now declined to two. 1 believe it is literally
the fact that the Daily A'e.ws, the Stur, and
the 'Jtlfyraph, each have one reporter to deal
with the House of Lords as he thinks fit,
while in the Commons nine or ten reporters
on each journal follow each other in quick
euccession. Indirectly, this fact Bays much
lor the altered fetliug towards the House of
1'eers. It is felt that the discussions amongst
the Dukes, Fail?, aud Marquises are bo feeble
and conversational, that it was a waste of re
sources to put six or seven writers into their
gallery to record the remarks that were made.
The only occasions on which I have visited
the House of Lords this year have
served to encourage a lower estimate of their
cervices. A few elderly gentlemen gossip to
gether for half an hour, one of them now and
then risiDg, and altering his tone into the or
thodox Bound of a.speech, but really changing
Lis observation in very little else. The Irish
Church question must serve presently to stir
them up, and we shall have set orations from
the Tory Lords, and several semi-discourses
from the lnshops; but these spasmodic out
bursts but make the ordinary silence the more
perceptibly felt. The day is coming when the
House of Lords will be transformed, so far as
its legislative power is concerned, into an eleo
tive, not an hereditary senate an assembly
Selected from the honest as the rich, the mtel
liceut as the ignorant; in which property will
cease to be the necessary title. The first step
will be the creation of peers for life; aud if the
Lords oiler stubborn resistance to the me a
sures of the next House of Commons, this
proceeding is tolerably certain of being
There are certain members of the House of
Loids who render something in return for
their dignity I mean the law lords. To have
to hear Scotch appeals on a broiling hot sum
trier's day is a duty which some men would
feel was insufficiently remunerated by a title
hen there is a debate in the Lommoui on
any question of Scotch law it is left to the
Scotchmen themselves. A discussion in Ureek
would be much more intelligible to the mass
of the members. Probably this will alays
reiruia to, for Scotch lawyers believe that
their jurisprudence, its outlandish jargon in
eluded, is the finest in the world. To show
liontou readers what Kuglish law lords have to
fuller, I subjoin a Scotch rule cited to the
House of Lords last week during the hearing
of an appea case:
"It is always declared that such tailzies shall
only be allowed in which the forsaii irritant
and resolutive clauses are insert in the procu
rators of resignation, charters, precepts, ami
instruments of saesing; and the original tailzie
once produced before the Lords of bession judi
tially. who are hereby ordained to interpose
their authority thereto, and that a record be
made in a particular register book to be kept
for that etlect, wherein shall be recorded the
names of the maker of the tailzie and the aires
of tailzie, and the geueral designations of the
lordbbips aud baronies; aud the provisions and
conditions contained in the tailzie with the
forsaid irritaut and resolutive classes Bub
joined thereto, to remain in the forsaid
register, ad ptrjirluam rc.i memnriam, ami
for which record there shall be paid to the
Clerk of Register and his deputy the same
dries as paid lor the registration of oeasings;
and which provisions aud irritaut clauses shall
be repeated in all the subsequent conveyances
of the said tailzie; and being so insert, his
Majesty, with advice and consent forsaid,
declares the samine to the real and ettectual
not only apainst the contraveneers and their
lures, but also 2inBt tlielr creditors, com-
priiers, adjadgers, and other singular suc
cessors whatsoever, whether by legal or oon
ventionaVtitles." A pension of 6000 a year cannot be too
jnnch for an ex-Lord Chancellor, who is ex
pected to master phraseology of that kind.
NIA QARA SHIP CANAL.
A Blftalflraat Stat.m.at f tk New
&BlaBt aad Waster Dintid,
From the Chicago Tribun.
We find in the Boston Advertiser an elabo
rate article showing ths vital importance to
Boston and New England generally of the
early completion of a ship canal around the
Falls of Niagara. The article is replete with
interest, and gives fa;ts, the full force of
which are beginning to impress the New Kng
land people seriously. The gradual falling
away of loreign trade under our system of
fearlnl taxation, and the overwhelming in
crease of domestic commerce, have had a
wonderful effect upon the seaboard cities.
The lakes, the rivers, and the railroads
of the interior are the agents of a
commerce to which a score of seaports are not
essential. New York has attracted the great
bulk of the foreign trade, and its recovery
by Boston is conceded to 'be out of
the question. New York' lies between
Boston and the West, and her pros
perity is largely due to the Krie Canal.
But a ship canal around the Falls
of Niagara has become indispen
sable to accommodate the Western com
merce. New York has blindly refuse 1 to
enlarge her canals or to make them free.
The West has to be taxed for transporta
tion to a point that almost admits of foreign
grain at competitive prices. If the trade of
the West cannot find its way by rail or ca
nal, at reasonable rates, to the Atlantic, it
must find the other and the most natural
route, and that is by the St. Lawrence. With
out in any way suggesting that the territory
on both Eides of the St. Lawrence, from its
mouth to its source, be made part of the
American Union one moment sooner than that
marked out by fate for that event, we may
state that the necessities of Western commerce
for an ontlet to the ocean render the acquisi
tion of British America at some time inevita
ble. The country will never consent that
American commerce shall pass down the St.
Lawrence in a foreign territory, any more than
it would consent, sixty years ago, that the
Mississippi should flow through foreign soil.
The writer in the Adverlisr gives some rea
sons why the St. Lawrence must become the
highway for Western products. 90,000,000
btihhels of wheat were moved from Chicago
and other Lake Michigan ports in 18G7. In
addition to these, Chicago, in the same year

The ret ult of this vast trade ha3 been to
produce a commercial navy on the lakes,
which is compared with that of New York and
Boeton, as follows:

This trade is increasing with rapid progres
sion, the present lake commerce being the
growth of the present generation. The average
lost of moving a bnshel of corn from Chicago
to New York in 1807, by lake, canal, and
liver, was thirty-three cents and two mills. It
cost five cents additional to take it to Boston.
The cost of moving corn by rail from Chicago
to the seaboard is one and a half pur cent, per
mile, which is calculated at 45 cents per
buthel. But the crops can never be moved
by rail. One UOO-ton vessel can carry as many
bushels as 100 freight cars. It is estimated
that the cost of conveying a bushel of grain
from Chicago to Boston via a canal around the
Falls of Niagara and the St. Lawrence river
will be thirty cents. It is estimated that a
direct commerce between Chicago and Boston
would thus spring up which would be more
profitable to Boston and to the navigation in
terest than the foreign trade, which is now
mostly lost, ever was. Low fr ights would make
Boston a market for Western products, and
New Fngland manufactures will find a market
in the West. This view is thus summed up: -"We
have endeavored to show some of the
benefits that would result to the commerce of
Boston from this canal; but equal good would
come to the manufacturing interests of New
Fngland a great market would be open for
goods which are now prohibited by high
li eights, and in the redaced price of food
which would follow this work, her operatives
would be placed more on a level with those of
hurope. ihe cheapening of the food of a
nation is generally a difficult problem to solve
in this case it is simple and easy, and the
process carries with it many collateral ad van
Boston commerce and Boston trade are on
(he decline; the decline of Boston is the de
cline of all New England, and until a measure
becomes essential to the benefit of New hue
land and Boston, it has no merit? according to
the system or political economy which pre
vails Kast of the Hudson. A ship canal around
the Falls of Niagara is a direct necessity. Its
lion construction is an annual charge of from
ten to twenty cents per bnshel upon all grain
of the West moved to the East. Supposing that
sum to be paid by the consumers, then it has
tten to much added to the cost of the bread aud
n eat of the people of the Eastern States. They
Lave enjoyed the luxury of paying ten cents
per bushel extra for their corn aud wheat,
and, in proportion, for their flour, beef, pork,
lard, aid other Western products, in order to
lerpetuate the monopoly of transportation in
the Erie canal. It is no longer, however, a
question of extortion; it is a question of capa
city. The caual aud the railroads combined
are not equal to the task of moving the Western
erops to the Atlantic, ihe additional high
way mubt be furnished, and very soon
Private enterprise and capital will flud it to
