How Cyras Laid the Cable.
BY JOH3 C. SAXX.
Come listes all onto my song,
It is DO sflly fable :
Tis all about toe mighty cord
They cal! the Atlanta Cable.
Br ATC Cyrus Field, he said, says he,
I hare a pretty notion,
That I caa rua ? telegraph
theron the Atlantic ocean. ,
Than sJJ the people laughed, and ?aid :
They'd like to seo him do ?ti
? He might get half seas ever, but
He serer could go through it.
To carry oat his foolish pisa
He never would be able;
He aright as weU go haag himself
With bis Atlantic Cable.
Bat Cyras wu a valiant man
A fellow of decision ;
Anc. heeded not their mocking words,
Their laughter and derision.
Twice did bis brave efforts fail,
And jot his mind was stable ;
Ho wa'n't tho maa to break his heart
Beoause he broke his- embie !
*s Ono? more ! my gallant boys !" he cried ;
" Three times ! you know the fable 1"
(I'll make lt thirty, muttered he,
But I will lay the cable.)
ODM more they cried-hurrah-karrah !
What means this great commotion!
Tho Lord be praised tho cable's laid !
Across the Atlantic ocean !
Loud rings the bel! ; for flashing through
Si:: hundred leagues of water,
Old mother England's benison
Salutes h*;.- eldest daughter.
Now long live President and Queen ;
And long live tho gallant Cyrus!
And may hi? courage, faith and zeal
With emulation Sro us !
And may we honor evermore
The manly, bold and stable;
And tall our sons-to mako them braTo
How Cyrus laid his cable!
T?e Brown Silk Dress*
"Why. Eliza! what a strange choioe
for a wedding dress ! Your other dresse*
are in very good style, and you have a
plenty of them, considering the changes
in fashion, but a brown silk to be married
in ? who ever beard of such a fancy in a
girl of eighteen?"
"'Tis true, aunt, that my choice may
seem somewhat sombre, but you know
very well that I am about to become the
wife of a poor mechanic, who depends on
his daily labor for support. . As the wife
of such a m.-in, 1 must necessaiily lim t
ray expenditures to my circumstances,
and I have thought it .better to purchase
something which would be useful for
sometime to come, than to consult m)
appearance as a splendid bride for one
short evening-especially as 1 am to see
.'There is something in that. There
is my Maria's wedding dress. She will
never wear it again in the world. She
had a white satin, with a lace dress over
it. Oh, she did look beautifully ! I do
admire to see a handsome bride."
" Yes, it is very well for those who can
afford it. But it would be quite absurd
for me to purchase an expensive dtess for
one, or even for a few evenings, when, by
the expenditure of half che money, 1 can
procure that which will be serviceable
for some years. But come, put on your
bonnet, and step over to over to our new
house, lt is all furnished-at least all
that is finished; 1 value it more highly
than I should if it was not so near my
s> * . *
?.There, William has left this small
parlor, this sitting room, and three cham
bera, to finish at his leisure, when he is
out of employment. See how everything
is arranged ; so handy Ibr my work."
Sl You don't say you are going to do
your awn work ?"
" Certainly I do. There is only one
apprentice, and I should think it strange
if I could not do all with ease."
" My heart, what strange fancies you
have ! To be sure, it is well enough if
you can bring your mind to it, but' then
folks do so differently now-a-duys. There
is Maria-she has moved into an elegant
house, all furnished from top to bottom.
She keeps a great girl to do the work,
and a little one to . wait and tend. Oh,
things do go on beautifully, 1 promise
" Her husband is a young lawyer, is
he not ? ls he wealthy ?"
" Oh ! he is very well ohT. He does
not much practice yet, but I dare say he
will in time. He has a thousand dollar*
at interest. Besides, Maria never would
have married a mechanic, their hands
get so hard and black, and their complex
ions, especially if they are exposed, get
*80 brown. I would not wish to hurt your
feelings, but ? think that, for pride's sake,
for the saka of the family, you might
have made a little different choice."
w Oh, aunt, exouse my laughing-I have I
yet to learn that a man's honest occupa
tion, whether it produces hard hands or
white, soft hands, whether it gives the
cheek a brown or ? pale hue, is any dis
paragement to him* You must get ac
quainted with William, and hear Vim
converse. You will not think of his hard
hands, and his animated, intelligent coun
tenance will drive his bronzed skin quite
out of your head. But oome, you don't
say anything about my furniture-and
you must see my nice closets."
"Oh! your furniture is weil enough.
The lesa you have the less you will have
to take care of, you know."
* Yes, we could not get much furniture.
I insisted upon William taking the money,
which my grand-mother left me, to pay
off a few. hundred dollars, which he owed
for this place, in order to begin even in
the world. We both have such a horror
of debt that we are determined never to
,ncur any, if we can possibly help it Si
what a nice press for bed clothes this is
"Why, whats quantity of bed ai
table linen!-it?is really nice, too. Yt
have more than my Maria has, I declare
"Yes-I always want an abundance i
such things. This drawer is filled wii
towels-this is for my ironing sheet ar
blanket-and this closet contains my t
and wooden ware."
" I declare, Eliza, you are a strang
thoughtful child ! J must tell you or
thing about Maria, that made us have
good hearty laugh. The Monday momie
! after she was married, the girl came I
ask where the tubs were, and don't yo
think that child had actually forgotten I
buy a tub, a clothes-line orpins! Sh
said it never popped into her head. Bi
la! it wasn't strange-she had neve
! been used to do anything of the kind."
" I believe, aunt, I have shown you a
now. Wo will go, if yon please. I hop
you will not let my brown dress or Wi
liam's brown nandi frighten you a wa
" Oh, no! but as I must take the stag
for Maria's early ii the morning, yo
must allow me bb retire early."
* . * * ? ?
" What fellows these Yankees are fo
combining elegance and usefulness," sal
a Southern gentleman to himself, as h
stood on the piazza of 'He hotel in the lil
tie town of-. "Sir," said he, ad
dressing himself to a venerable look in;
man near, " can you tell me who reside
in that elegant cottage, where the ground
are laid out with'so much taste ?"
u Oh! that is Squire Bill Thorndike's
You must be a stranger in these parts
not to know him."
" I am sii ; and since he seems such i
prominent member of society, I shoulc
be happy to know something of his his
u Oh ! there is nothing remarkable ii
it, nothing at all, sir." His father was f
man of great learning, but he nearly run
through a fortune in trying to H\se in style
He died, and left three boys. Theil
mother, who went from this place, was a
woman of strong sense. She sold the
property, paid off all the debts, and had
enough left to buy th t little house to the
left. It was but two room?, and there is
a garden spot attached to it. Here she
put out her boys to trades. One to a
mason, one to a wheelwright, and this
:ill to a carpenter. They were mighty
smart boys, nui settled in distant towns.
Bill staid, however. He married widow
Percy's daughter. She was as sharp as
a steel trap. She was a right good scholar,
and she has mide an excellant wife. They
hive g"t along wonderfully. Everybody
wondered how it'was. He did not make
b -Uer wages than other men, but some
how, tue money increased. It was no
mystery to me, though, for I watched
them pretty sharp. * You never saw a
great display of finery-*-sueh as laces,
and flounces and furbelows. No-they both
pulled one way, and took their pleasure
in being sober, industrious and u<eful,
and now they reap their reward hy being
universally respeoted. Why, there ain't
a man that has so much money to let as
Squire Thorndike, and he it. never hard
and screwing as about it as some are. He
isn't stingy, either. He has taken the
two children of one Lawye.r Willis to
bring up, and he does as well by them
as he does by his own. Lawyer Willis'
wife was a kind of cousin to Squire
Thorndike's wife. She was a dashy,
showy gal. Lord ! you'd have thought
the richest folks upon earth were married
wh?-n they had the knot tied. Poor fellow,
he bad a.hard time, notwithstanding, to
support his wife in style. He1 look to
di ink and died. I've heard say that she
-urned up her nose at her cousin's match,
but she little thought he.r boys would be
glad to go lo that same cousin fora home,
while she would be glad to take up with
the little house that Squire Thorndike's
mother lived in."
" Ah ! sir," continued theoM man, " this
is a changing world; but to my mind, if
folks would only be prudent and indus
trious, and give uphatidkering after things
beyond their means, there would be more,
real good done in the world and few

Sut related the story thus : " George,
did you ever see Sicily Burnes? Her

"Yes, a very handsome girl."
" Handsome ! that word don't ki ver the'

Lively Times in Texas.
Editor McGary, of the Brenham, Texas,
Banner, saw one* Whann, a teacher of a
negro school, vapouring about the streets
of Brenham with his dusky pupils ra pro
cession behind him, singing offensive
songs, and altogether misbehaving himself
and making his little kinky flock do like
wise in a highly improper and riot-breed
ing manner. Dipping ins pen in gall,
Brother McG- proceeded in bis next issue ?
to dissect Whann and hh doings in such
merciless fashion that the official world of I
Brenham was stirred to the very core of j
its heart Down came the Bureau man
\ npon the editor with a fi ne of $200, with
out even the shadow of a trial or pretence
of examination. Editor McG. being s
law abiding man, turned to the statutes
.and discovering, in bis quaint phrase, that
he was " neither a freedman, refugee, or
abandoned lands," refused to pay the mo
ney, and was forthwith hauled off to a
filthy jail. Here, for three mortal weeksyj
he languished in unlawful duress, suffer
ing doubtless mitch in body, but keeping
up a stout heart against the world, the
flesh, and the devil-Whann " this Bu.
reau," and its man. At length, thanks to
Gov. Throckmorton, the prison doors
flew open and the prisoner stepped forth
free. Hastening to his sanctum, ho seized
once more his ail-disgruntling pen and
sent forth such a peau of triumph as set
half Texas in a roar. At the bead of his
column appeared a Fourth of- July cannon,
belching forth, after the tirar honoured j
fashion of the thing, a world of fiery ex- j
u I ration, and under this came some red
hot journalistic shot, as follows:
