When sunset's rosy glow departs,
With voices full of mirth,
Our household band with joyons hearts
Will gather round the hearth.
They look upon his trembling form,
His pallid face behold,
And tuirn away with chastened tones
"My father's growing old."
And when each tuneful voice we raise,

His voice which minglea in our lays
Is tremlisis and low.
It used to seem a clarion's tone,
So musical and bhld,
But weaker. fainter. has it grown

-The same fond smile ie used to weair
Still wretilhes his pales lips now,
But timte with lines of age and care
Has trne-I his placid irow.
But yet amid the lapce ofyears
His heart has not grown cold,
Thongh voice and footstelis pla'nly tell
"My rather's growing old."
Mly father! thon did'st strive to shara
Aly joys, and caln my fcars.
And now thy child, with grateful care,
In thy declining years.
Shall smoods thy path, and brighter scenes
By Faith, and lope unfold;
And love thee with a holier love
Since thou art groiving old.

CONNECTION OF THE OCEANS.
We have paid less attention than per
iaps somr our renders may think they
merited. lA lie recent Corveniions at St.
Louis anIlemphis. The proceedings of
these bodios were cerralinly not without
interest, ahd when published in full will
emboJy much useful information. For
this we s9all be as ready as others to
thank then. But these proceedings will
infalihly dimonstrate that the avowed pur
pose of the. Conventions-the giving prac
tical elfect to some one of several projects
for buildini a Railroad across the conti
nent ; was ionceived in t hespitit of dreams
and not ofitober wakefulness.
At the S. Louis Convenrion, estimates
were made!by a distinguished engineer, of
the COSL offtnRaihway fromi the Mississippi
River across the Rocky Mountains at the
South Parl- thenco through the central
part of thi California basin. across the
Sierra Ne k da, to the waters of the San
Fiancisco ay. Considering the natore
of the counji-y, its extent of near two thou
sands nilei and the very little of proper
exploration to which a large part of i: has
been subjected, it was a rather hold thing
to attempr'un estimate of cost. But he set
it down at thiimoderate sui oreighty-nine
millions ofi dollars. and the Convention
were so farifrom being scared by such a
suin. that 1tny voted with great unanimi.
ty that theisaid Road, from some point
near the Wesrern boundary of Missouri,
ought to bemadie to branch in three diree
tions-to Aiemphis, Sr. Louis, and Chi
cago; and they were of opinion that when
the Federal, Government shall have fab.
ricated thisf monster, with a main trunk of
fifteen hundred miles, and three tails
of five huadred miles each, it will bimaply
have done:is. duty by proving for wants
of the cournry, vtnal in magnitude to ithe
works by hich they are to be satisfied.
That well ibforned men should advance
such prop( itions waus to us a matier of
great wont. and might have continued
so but for ilbsequent developments.
The St; Lonis Convention was speediiv

respectab Ie, at Memphis. the outward
manifestaW- of which were not unkile
to have admitted some scruples na to the
propriety of setting the General Govern
tment anut such w ork. Still, for ill their
published proceedings told us, were war
ranted in concluding that they were only
a little less visionary than their brelhern
of St. Louis,-not that they were truly
in their sober senses.
Fortunately for them, the people of
Mobile Ield a tublic meeting on the re
tura of the delegation, at which Mr. Sie
wart, one of the number, gave an account
of the trte intent and effect of the doitigs
at- Memphis. According to him, the re.
suit of the only constitunions of the mem
hers of the Conventiot, wias a general con.
viction that the R:.ilvay acraiss the con.
iinet was unless at some distant point in
the future, altogether a hope!ess project.
That all the best informed men, (Lt.
Maury, the President of the Convention,
aiming them,) admitted that the China
trade could never he carried over that
route, nid that conseqnently the resources
of the Road would be limited to the trade
arid iravel of tihe people of the United
States. Mr. Stewart thought however.
that tho Cenvention wotild do inuch nod;
that it would give an imupulse to Snuthrn

passengers, eilit in nmiber, were all wo
men and children; two infants, one six
weeks and the other fite months old. On
Monday. 20th ult., at 2 P. M., anchored
off the Great Isaacs. about two miles from
thle shore, in nine fathons water; the wind
moderate from the S. S. W.. with pleasant
weather. At 1 A. M., the wind hauled
suddenly to the N. W., and blew violently,
with constant heavy rain. The ship com
menced dragging her anchors, with the en
tire length of both chains out; we cut away
the foremast, and while in ise act ofentring
away the inainmast, she struck the rocks,
and in one hour went to pieces During
the time we were on the wreck, the sea
was coutinually breaking over us; After
several i'neffectual attempts to get a rope
on shore, we at length succeeded, and
landed all on board, though many of tbem
much bruised and, lacerated by the drift
wood and surf dashing them against the
sharp enral rocks.
On landing, we deemed it safest to gain
the hights or south easternI part of the
Islal, as the sea had already commenced
breaking over the North-western poit
where we stood. We had scarcely pro
ceeded fifty yards on our way, leading the
ladies -at a slow pace, they being in their
niahi-dresses and bare-footed, when a tre
mendous sea broke over the rocks atid
washed away twenty of our number, eight
of % bich we saved-the other i welvo were
drowned. Among those lost were Parker
Flower, 2d officer, antd James Lane,

lives in endeavoring to save those of Mrs.

we were rescued by the ship Bangor, Capt.
