TIioNow Laid Egg.

For eggs are brittle thing*;
TU.CJ cannot fly until they're hatched,
And have, a pair of wings,
If once you break the tepdec shell,
The wroag you can't redrosB;
The yolk and white will all run out,
And make a dreadful mess.
'Tis but a little while at best.
That k?ni have power to lay,
To-morrow's ogg may addled be
That were quite fresh te-day.
Oh ! then let the touch be light
That takes them from the keg,
There is no hand whose cunning skil I
Can mend a broken ogg. .
Ah, touch it with a tender touch,
For till.the egg is boiled
Who knows but that, unwittingly,
H_may be Btnashod nnd spoiled 1
.Tbo Bummer breeze that 'gainst it bloi
Ought tobe still and hushod,
For eggs, like a youthful purity,
Arc awful when they are smashed !

Native- Protests Agaist Railroads
Two very curious nrtiolcs liavc been
published by a Shanghai native news
paper, the Ifwei-JTao, ?orotesting against
the construotiou of railways in the
Chinese empire. The Hwr.l-Pao is ol'
opinion that tho existence of" railwa ys
in Europe is too recent to admit of a
judgment beiug formed as to their prac
tieal utility, and, moreover, that there
is not sufficient business in China to
render them profitable. Tho Cbiucse
journal goes on to say that ;(tea aud
silk arc the princip-.l objects of com
merce, and these have hitherto been
I or warded to the treaty potts by river
steamboats. A substitution of railways
for steamboats would not effjet aay ?iv
iug in point of time, aud.could not,
thoiofore, oven iroai the point ol view
taken by the foreigners themselves, bo
of any service to China. Admitting
that" a little time was gained, the
Chinese would not bebcuerucl, f ir th :
goods would n it be exported moi'O rapid
ly. Thus the railways would only lead
to nn accumulation in the ports of vast
quantities of goods which, as thoy could
nut be shipped oil' all at once, would lull
considerably in price."
The llioci J'iiu also says : '"The aeci
dei.t.s ( ti railway lines are very uumcr
bus, e.itiseil by collision*, by the c igities
or tenders taking lire, by the trains run
niiig off the lines, 01 by tho bridges

(but ttic (rains folh w iliOt.- regular

ihoroughb|*ed horse, and the people
walking on the lines would have no
time to got out of their way. From
this cause alone the number of fatal
accidents would be enormous. In all
countries whore railways exist they are
considered a very dangerous mode ol
locomotion, and, beyond those who have
very urgent business to transact, no
one thinks of using them." This latter
statement cannot as yet be acs-tptod. iu
its entirety; but, unfortunately, no have
every reason to know that, so far as
England is concerned, traveling bv rail
