Dear mother, 'tis thine emblem-dust

To leave untasted life's dark,bitter streams,
By thee, as erst in ohihlhoo.l. lie.
And share thy di eams.

To stain the plumage of ny sinless years,

Aye, must I linger here,
A lonely branch upon a blnsteel tree,
Whose last frail leaf, ttntimely sere,
Went down wiith thee ?
Oft from life's withered bower,
In still conmmunication with the paet I turn,
And muse on thee, the only flower

by Ernker & Co., of this city, but it

our revrters called upon Commodore
Vanderbilt at his place in Fourth

about to take his afternoon ride with
his wife, which he does every day at
3:30 to a minute. The old gentleman
was walking about the carriage-yard
smoking a cigar and waiting for his
splendid team to be attached to the
vehicle. lie was in a horribly bad
humor, and in response to the request
of our reporter for some facts, opin

sage and most financial mouth, said
half graciously, that he would answer
any questions, but that he knew noth

"the datmndest fellow for knowing
nothing that you ever saw." Our re

tluestioning to which he had been in
