DON'T STAY LATE ,TO-NIGHT.
The hearth of hone is heanting 6
With rays of roy light ; u
And lovely eyes are gleiming.
As falls the shades of night:
And while thy steps are leaving
The circle pure and 'right.
An.1 tender voice, half grieving,
Bays, "don't stay late to-night." t
the world in which thou movest,
Is busy., have anl wide ;
The world of her thou lowest
I at the ingle side;
S:1o wait for thy warm greeting;
Thy amiles Is her delight:
lher gentle voice entreating.
Says. "don't stay late to-night."
The world, cold, inhumaiu
Will spurn thee, if thou fall;
The love of one poor toman
Outlasi and shames thorn all;
Thy children will cling around thee 1
Let tate be dark or bright :
At home no shaft will wound thee,
Then, "don't stay late.to-night."

"Di:erv of a Southern Refingest during

1867 ) It is understood to be from the

The humorous extract below strikes
us as not unworthy of Dickens :
Wd left Wiinchester in the stage
coach for Strasburg at 10 o'clock at
night, on the 14th of December, 1861. I
The weather was bitter cold, and we i
congratulated ourselves thltt the coach 1
was not crowded. Mr. G. and the girls
were on the bnek seat, a Methodist
clergyman, a soldier and myself, on the
middle, and two soldiers and our maid
Betsy on the front seat. We went off
1 y starlight, with every prospect of a
pleasantit drive of eighteen miles.
Aa we 'vere leaving the ,nburbs
of the town, the driver drew up before a
small honse, from which issued two wo
men wi.h a baby, two baskets several
bundles and a box. The passengers
began to shout out, "Go on, driver ;
what do yon mean ? ihere's no room for
another ; go on." The driver made no
answer, but. the two women Came to
tho coach door and hegnn to put in the
bundles. The gentlemen protested that
they cotld got not in-there was no room.
Tle woman wah the baby said alhe
would get in ; she was "agwino to
Strasburg to spend Christmaa witi her
relatieys, whir ehe was born and raised,
and wlar she had not been for tell years,
and nobody had a bet ter right to thl
stage than Qhe had and she was agwine,
antu Kitty Grim was agwino too-she's
my sister-in-law; and so is baby, catso
ba by never did see her relaiotions iii St ras
burg in her life, So. Uncle Ben I" she
exclaimed to the driver,"ttakel my bag,
61,Mt n"u irux wel.l you, inna mit (ntd
Kitty and baby and the bundles and the
little basket will go inside."
All this was said amidst violent pro
testations fro-ii the titn withit : ''You
can't. get in ; driver, go on." But., stilt
ing the action to the words. she opt'iietd
the door, calling. "Come Kitty." got on
lie step a id thrust her heitd in, saying:
"If these gentlemr-n is gentlemen, and
has got any politeness, they will get
out. and set, w tih Unole Ben, and let
liidies come itilie.'' A palan ensued.
A t last a anihued tone from the soldietr
n the middle seat was hontrd to say,
"'Maidam, if von will get off the step, '
will iret oult,'
"'Very we,ll, sir ; and why dlidn't you
do that at first? Anid now'" mnid alit,

English' Mi ers Tunnelling Froadway
Progren of tho Work.
It is no doubt gonerally known that
at the the last session of the Legisla
ture the "Pneumatic Despatch Compa
ny" obtained a charter couf.-ring on
them the privilege of constructing a
pneumatic railroad under certain
streets in New York city, with a view
of facilitating the delivery of parcels
and letters. About three weeks ago
the company determined to commence
operations secretly. Moses Beach,
who is the president of the company,
hired a collar beneath Delvin's cloth
ing store, corner of Broadway and
Murray street. Hlere, by degrees, the
necessary machinery was placed, and
thoywork of boring the tunnel com
wenced. The men having charge of
the work are a party of English ni
ners who were but recently engaged
in the constiuction of the pneumatic
railroad tube" under the streets in
London. Earth was first removed in
frontof Devin's cellar, and the men
gradually worked out itto the centre
of Broadway. The earth is not dug
out, but pressed away by a shilht,
which latter is exactly the diameter
of the tunnel. The shield is forced
ahead by means of a number of screws
on the roar of the shield, worked b)
levers, the displaced earth exuding
through the trap-doors in the shield.
The progress made is necessarily slow,
..bout ten inches per day cowupleted.
Bricklayers follow in the rear of the
shield and line the tunnel with hard
brick, which of course prevents the
earth from caving in. The object of'
of this company in keeping the work
so secret is said to be their fear of in
unotious frot stage companies or pro
Verty owners, and so they succeeded in
getting about ten yards down Broad
way before anybody out.ide of the
comn puny was aware that the work had
been commenced. This section of the
tunnel will terminate at the Now York
Post Office, and then the company
will commence to work up town.
The principle by which the cars
will be propelled is now pretty gene
rally known. An ordinary railroad
track is laid at the bottom of the tube,
over which the cars are propelled by
a current of air and made to return
by the creation of a varuun.
It is not known whether the compa
ny intend limiting their operations to
the conveyance of parcels or whether
they will attempt to carry passengers.
A car capable of seating twenty-four
passengers coultl be easily adapted to
the tunnel. A flange, closely fitting
to the sides of the tunnel, is fitted to
one end of each car, upon the surface
of which the air acts in propelling the
car. The current of air will he sup
plied by immense fan-wheels worked
by steam at each end of the route.

The Alabamalaims Treaty.
The Senate Committee on Foreign
Relations held a meeting to-day, and
among other subjects discussed the
treaty between the United States and
Great Britain concerning the settle
went of the Alabama claims. Al.
though the question was brought up
near the close of the session of the
conmittee, a fair expression of senti
went was elioitod on the teris of the
treaty concluded between our Minis
ter to England, Reverdy Johnson, and
the British Minister for Futeign Af
fairs, Lord Stanley. A clear ima.jori
ty of the comnmittee expressed thorn
selves as opposed to the provisions o1
the treaty. Mr. Sumner, chairuaa
of the committee, was ,of opinion thal
Minister Johnson, in negotiatiug thi
treaty, had lost sight of the real pointl
at issue between the two governluents
Too much had been conceded to Grewa

was, therefore, agreed that a specia
