On the slope of one of the beautiful
Swiss mountains stood a large cot
tage, so shut in by the lofty peaks
which towered round it, that its inhabi
tants could hardly catch a glimpse of
the blue sky. It was the dwelling
place of a young couple and their only
child, a little boy of four years old; and
poor and lonely though it was, yet it
was the abode of peace and lore; and
no king was happier than Franz, when
on his return from hunting, or else
from a day's work afc one of the farms
in the sheltered valley at the foot of
the mountain, he met his Gutcben and
the little Williolm hastening along" tlie" '
mountain-path to meet and welcome
him, as soon as they heard the distant
sound of his voice singing some lively
Oue beautiful morning, Franz said
to his wife, "I must go up the moun
tain to-day. The sun is shining bright
ind warm, and there is a good chance
of finding game; besides, who knows
how soon the weather may change
fio, putting on his bunting-eoat and
pouch, and taking his gun in his hand,
he bade good bye, in a cheerful voice,
to his wife ami child, and disappered
up the mountain-side. His wife had
no sooner lost sight of him, than she
felt a strange sinking of the heart, as
if she was never to see him again. She
gazed out of the window on which
there were man beautiful forms traced
by the frost, but she tried in vain to
overcome the fears which had taken
possession of her mind, and she sat
down agaiu by the fireside, with her lit
tle Wilheliu pressed closely in her
arms. She was soon roused by a rush
ing, crushing noise, and falling on her
knees, she exclaimed, God be merci
ful to us, or we shall be destroyed by
the avalauche." Scarcely had she ut
tered the words, when it became dark
as iniduight. The cottage was buried
iu the snow !
The evening was calm, and the stars
shone brightly in the clcarksky, when
Franz descended along the homeward
path with a chamois lying across his
shoulder, lie had seen but little came.
and had climbed many Kiddy heights
before he got near enough to take suc
cessful aim at the timed animals, lie
hastened eagerly along, expecting ev
ry minute to see his wife and child, as
lie knew he must be near the spot where
the cottage stood. At leugth he stop
ped, and gazing on the masses of snow
aud ico which surrounded him, cried,
in a despairing voice, " My wife ! my
child ! They are lost buried in the
cruel avalaucli! May God help me
and them I"
With the first ray of light, Franz
and a party of sympathizing friends
from the nearest cottages were assem
bled, with spades aud shovels, on the
spot where he though his cottage had
been buried, and commenced to clear
away the snow, in hope to extricute
Gutcben aud her little one. For three
days they worked incessantly without
any success. All then lost courage ex
cept Franz, who never despaired, but
continued to dig night and day, with
out speaking to his companions, but
praying inwardly to God, who gave him
strength to persevere in spite of his
grief and anxiety.
In the meantime, Gutcben believed
herself shut up fi;r ever in her subter
ranean prison. Their stock of provi
sion could not last long, and then she
saw no prospect but death for herself
and her little William, who often asked
her when it would be morning, as by
the light of the lamp she read in her
Bible of Christ's miracles, and found
comfort in praying that he might save
them, if it were possible ; and if not,
that he would soon take them to his
kingdom in heaven.
On the ninth day she suddenly heard
the sound ef voices above ; and at the
same moment Frauz heard his spade
touch a hard object, which ho soon
found to be the roof of his cottage.
He quickly fasteued a long cord around
his waist, removed a portion of the
roof, and descended in ths little room,
whare he found wifo and child safe aud
And who can describe the joy of that
meeting, between those who feared
they had for ever parted iu this world?
By the light of the now expiring lamp,
they knelt and offered up their thanks
and praise to God, who had so won
derfully preserved them.
When Gutehen once mors beheld the
light of the sun and the glittering
mountain-tops, it seemed to her that
she had never before felt its beauty and
splendor. The very fir-trees appeared
to have decked themselves with fresher
green ; and her heart was full of joy as
she was greeted by the kind-hearted
men who had so nobly assisted in sav
Fran erected a cross to mark the
place where hi3 former home had stood,

and tells him the story of Franz and
Gutcben, and pray that he may emu

Resole and Meaning of the Election.
The defeat of the Republicans in
New York is more signal than in any
other State. Special reasons contri
bute to this result. The license law
cost the party thousands of votes in
the large cities. The nomination, in
dorsement and support of notoriously
corrupt and venal officials in the inter
ior drove thousands more from the
support of the Republicans ticket.
The insolent tyranny of the selfish and
unprincipled managers who obtained
control of the party machinery and
worked it for their own advantage,
regardless of the general good, kept
other thousands who are at least devo
ted to the Republicans
from the polls.
But the general result is due to Ahe
same causes which operated in Pennsyl
vania and Ohio. The masses of the
Republican party are not content with
the results of their party action or ths
tendencies of their policy. The Thirty-ninth
Congress did not meet their
expectations. The results of its
surcs have not come up to their
mises. They have disturbed
country not pacified it. They
planted added bitterness and alienation
between the sections of the Union,
instead of bringing then together on
the grounds of common interest and of
common glory. Too much relative
importance in national legislation, has
been given to the negro. Not con
tent with according him an equality
of rights, special privileges and po
litical powers have been accorded him.
The question of taxation, the currency
question, the material interests of the
ISouth, the systems of internal revenue
and the tariff, have all been neglected
or made subservient co the question of
the negro, while they are really the
questious which most nearly affect the
wenare ot the nation and the ha
ncss of the people.
Aud threats are made that this ex
treme aud ill-judged policy is to be i
pushed still farther. Confiscation is
to be enforced upon the Southern peo
ple. A division of the landed estates
among the negroes is claimed as just
and wise. Congress is expected to
override State Constitutions and State
laws, and to enact negro suffrage for
all the States.
Public sentiment throughout this
State is prepared to demand equal
rights before the law for all men, with
out distinction of race or color; but it
is not prepared to indorse these mea
sures of extreme and reckless fanati
cism. The Republican pr.rty halts
when confronted with such a policy.
The temper displayed by those who
press it contributes still further to this
revulsion. To carry their plans into
execution they threaten to overriude
all the checks and guarantees of the
Constitution to reorganize tho Su
preme Court, to impeach aud remove
thfi President, to arrogate absolute
and supreme power for Congress, and
to plunge the country into chaos for
years to come, rather than fail iu the
accomplishment of their schemes.
These things increased the distrust and
apprehension of a very large portion
of the Republican party, and contrib
uted to the result which we have just
We regard the defeat therefore, as
simply a lesson administered to the
Urjuiliican party. Aeto lorlc limes.
A Beautiful Extract. The fol
lowing eloquent paper on time, is we
believe, from the pen of Paulding:
1 saw a temple reared by the hands
of mau. standing with its high pinna
cle in the distant plain. The streams
beat about it, the God ot nature had
hurled his thunderbolt against it, yet
it stood as firm as adamant. Revelry
was in the halls, the gay, the happy,
the young, the beautiful, were there.
I returned, and lo! the temple was no
more. Its high walls lay iu scattered
ruin; moss aud grass grew rankly there:
aud all the midnight hour the owl's
long cry added to the deep solitude.
The young and gay who had reveled
there had passed away.
I saw a child rejoicing in his youth,
the idol of his mother, and the pride
of his father. I returned and that
child had become old. Trembling
with the weight of years, he stood the
last of his generation, a stranger amidst
all the desolation around him.
I saw an old oak standing in all its
pride upon the mountain; the birds
were caroling in its boughs: I returned
and saw the oak was leafless and sap
less the winds were playing at their
pastime through the branches.
! Who is the destroyer !" said I to
my guardian angel.
"It is Time." said he. "When
morning stars sang together for joy
over the new-made world he commen
ced his course; and when he has des
troyed all that is beautiful on the earth;
plucked the sun from his sphere; veil
ed the moon in blood, yea, wheu he
shall have rolled the heavens and the
earth away as a scroll, then shall an
augel from the throne of God come
forth, and with one foot upon the sea
and one upon the land, lift up his
hand towards heaven and swear, by
Heaven's Eternal Time was, but Time
shall be no more."

How Peter and Paul Looked.
It is allowable to mention the general
notion of the forms and features of the
two Apostles which has been handed
down in tradition as represented by
early artists :
Paul is set before us as having
stronglymarked andprominent features
of the Jew, yet not without some of
the finer lines indicative or Greek
thought. His stature is diminutive,
aud his btdy disfigured by some lame
n ess or distortion, which may have
evoked the contemptuous expression cf
his enemies. Ills beard was long and
thin. His head was bald. The char
acteristics of his face were a transpa
rent complexion, which visibly betray
eu quicK cuanges ot ms leeiings; a
bright grey eye, uuder thickly over
hung eyebrows, a cheerful and winning
expression of countenance, which in
vited the approach and inspired the
confidence of strangers. It would be
natural to infer from his continual
journeys and manual labor, that he was
possed of great strength of constitu
tion. But men of delicate health have
often gone through the greatest exer
tions ; and his own words on more than
oce occasion show that he suffered
inue'i from the lack of bodily health.
Peter is represented as a man of larger
and stronger form, aud his character
was harsher and more abrupt. The
quick impulses of his soul revealed
themselves in the flashes of a dark eye.
The complexion of bis faco was full
and sallow, and the short hair, which
is described as entirely grey at the
time of his death, curled black and
thick around his temples aud chin
when the Apostles stood together at
Antioch, twenty years before the mar
tydom. Sacrifice of life in China. A
correspondent of the San Francisco
Lulktin speaks ot the terrible carnage
of the late Taeping rebellion. Ouc
district is described which yielded
ninety thousand chests of tea per an
num before the war, and is now a des
ert waste. A belt of land fourhundred
miles long by two hundred miles wide
is literally without au iuhaditant.
The writer says:
The distinguished China traveler
and savant, Pr. Macgowan, estimates
the loss of life bv the Taeping war at
about twenty five millions souls; but
intelligent Chinese I have conversed
with say that full one hundred millions
were killed or perished from starvation
There was not much to choose on ei
ther side. Whether Imperial or Taen-
mg, the victorious party put men, wo
men and children to the sword. The
Grand Canal used to be choked up
with dead bodies, and 1 have seen even
the swift flowing langize crimson with
the blood of all ages, sexes aud condi
tions in life. '

Tiic latest Parisian duel was fought
between Prince Archille Murat au

The cause of the duel has beon a sub-
ject of much gossip. It appears, that
gallant officer, whose refusal to grant,
leave of absence to a gallant and nobki '

authority, wrote a letter strictly coup
