All Thy Works Praise Thee.
BY MARY HOWITT.
The moonbeams on the billowy deep,
The blue waves rippling on the strand,
The ocean* in' its peaceful sleep.
The shell that murmurs on the sand,
The cloud that trims the bending sky,
The bow that on its bosom glows,
The sun that lights thu vault so high,
The stars at midnight's calm repose;
These praise the power that arched the sky
And robed the earth-in beauty's dye.
The melody of nature's choir,
The deep-toned anthems of the sea,
The wind that turns a viewless lyre,
The zephry on its pinions free,
The thunder with its thrilling notes,
That peal upon the mountain air,
The lay that through the foliage floats
Or sinks in dying cadence there,
These all to Thee their voices raise.
A fervent voice of gushing praise.
The day-star, herald of the dawn,
As the dark shadows flit away,
The tint upon the cheek of morn,
The dew-drop gleaming on the spray?.
From wild birds in their wanderings,
From steamlets leaping to the sea,
From all earth's fair and lovely things,
Doth.living praise ascend to Thee;
These with their silent tongues proclaim,
The varied wonders of Thy name.
Pather, Thy hand hath formed the flower,
And flung it on the verdant lea,
Thou hast it ope at summer's hour,
Its hues of beauty speak of Thee
Thy works all praise Thee; shall not man
Alike attune the grateful hymn ?
Shall he not join the loftly strain,
Echoed from hearts of Seraphim ?
We tune to Thee our humble lays,
Thy mercy, goodness, love, we praise.
Loquacity, in conversation, is not more
offensive than egotism. -The egotist is a
eelf-sacrificing person. He takes on him?
self the chief part, in the social hour,
whether hi3 kindness is likely to prove ac?
ceptable or not. He is resolved to occupy
the centre of the conversing circle, in de
Bpito of whatovcr centrifugal tendencies he
may cause to be felt at the circumference.
Every topic, not introduced by himself,
he deems of little account. Does some
one propound a novel question ? He in?
stantly assumes, that it is propounded to
him, and undertakes to give an all-satisfy?
ing answer. Does some one venture a
rare observation ? - He is first to comment
on it. Swelling with conceit of self, he
extends his remarks. Now, ho utters a
turgid sentence, begining with a capital I
and now he utters another, ending with
an emphasized myself. If the beauty'
of some distant place slould be describ?
ed, his answer, -according to Mrs. ElUe
might be, UI never was there, but my un?
cle once was within ten miles of it; and
had it not been for the miscarriage of a
letter, /should have been his companion
on that journey ! My uncle was always
fond of taking me with hira. Dear, good
man, I was a greatfavorite of his I" ?
The egotist rarely improves on any
cutting hint, designed to check him in his
offensive forwardness. Little change
would you see in him, to-morrow, though
you should to-day, cause the Asiatic gen?
eralization to ring in his ear, "He who has
loast wisdom has most vanity." Laugh
tor, though really in ridicule, he construes
into an expression of applause; and silence,
though in fact the result of disgust, he re?
gards as an evidence that he is the admir?
ed cynosure of all eyes. \Thcn the talk
is discontinued, ho flatters himself with
the thought, that it has como to an end.
because he, the great sun of the company,
"has stopped shining.
I find on record a little anecdote con?
cerning Robert Hall, which illustrates tho
flattering effect, produced, in many instan?
ces, even by the philosophic taciturnity of
genius, on the mind of a conceited talker.
Mr. Hall had somowhere, become engaged
in conversation with one of that class of
dogmatic ministers whose rfotjr-matism is.
in Jerroid's phrase, "only pupy-ism come
to its full growth." The minister having,
afterward, met Mr. Jay, said to him, I
wonder you think so highly of Mr. Hall's
talents. I was some time ago traveling
with him into Wales, and we had several
disputes, and I more than once soon si?
Mr. Jay, not long after this interview,,
happened .to meet Robert Hall; and, on
alluding to the egotistic minister who, not?
withstanding his egotism, had become
somewhat popular as a preacher, Mr. Hall
replied, "I lately traveled with him, and
it was wonderful, sir, how such a baggage
of ignorance and confidence could have
been squeezed into his vehicle. He dis?
gusted and wearied me, with his dogma?
tism and perverscnoss, till God was good
enough to enable me to go to sleep."
It may not be amiss to present, in this
place a summary of injudicious and un?
pleasant talkers. There is the gossipping
talker, for whom Solomon, undoubtedly,
meant that wise saying of his:
??Take care how you speak all you
know." There is the loquacious or ramb?
ling talker, whom the Grecian sage Cleo
bulus,probably,had in mind,when he spoke
the maxim : "Many words and more ig?
norance." To this talker may, also, be
appliod to thoso words from an Asiatic
proverb : "Behold the drum; notwith?
standing all its noise, it is empty within."
There is the egotistic talker, whom the
admirable Chinese saying should teach a
lesson: "True merit, like the pearl inside
an oyster, is content to remain quiet till it
finds an opening." There is the meaty
mouthed talker*. This person is wanting
in personality; His thoughts are parasi?
tes, clinging to other men's ideas and opin?
ions. He is so fond of being agreeable,
that if he finds himself crossing a person's
views, at the smallest angle, he will sii o
back, as quickly as he can, into a parallel
of soft and cycophantic suavity. There
is the affected talked, whose vocal organs
are always artificially strained, like the
strings of a fiddle, before they arc trusted
in company. There is the churlish talker.
"You have often, met one of this class, in
the form of a stiff-necked official; and.
sometimes in that of a rail-road agent.
There is finally, the profane and obscene
talker, for whom some wise man of Asia
left the words: "Hen, because of speech,
have the advantage over beasts; but
brutes are preferable to men whose lan?
guage is indecent."
Now, in contrast with the foregoinglist
af disagreeable talkers, as a relief from
the languor which the consideration of
them may have caused you to experience,
permit me to place before your mind the
genial talker. To this social star, how
much do you owe of the luster and the
beauty of your memory's world ! By his
chaste and kindly utterances, how often
has he made hours which would have be en
dull to you, the most delightful in all your
life! Does he not soothe you. when you
are weary, to a repose in which your lost
vigor comes back ? Does he not kindle
your blood, when it is cold ? Does he :not
cause you to complain less and rejoice
more ? Does he not instruct you, raise
the tone of your thoughts, and make you
better to live and better to die ?
How does this person talk ? From a
large loving soul, his words come. They
always mean something. They rarely re?
fer to himself. They exhibit a manly
modesty, a cheerful spirit, much prudence,
much wisdom, and the beauty of simplic
Who has been the best pattern in con?
versation ? I do not find such a one
among tho philosophers"of the past or of
present. For. though these, as an able
writer says of Descartes, "receive theirin
tellcctural wealth from nature, in solid
bars rather than in current coin." yet it
mast be admitted that no philosopher has
ever lived, whose love of solitary employ?
ment did not cause him to be either in?
sufficiently intelligible or a little too silent
in mixed company. I do find such a one
among tho poets; for, though some of the
most interesting of all men have been
bards, yet no one of this class has been
worthy to bo called the best pattern
in conversation. Nor do I find a such a
oao Among etatepmen. Burke, who wax
one of the greatest and worthiest of states?
men, said, with a beautiful figure, that
t:tho perfection of conversation is not to
play a regular sonata, but. like the JEolian
harp, to await the inspiration of the pass?
ing ' breeze." Burke, however, was not
- pre-eminently a pattern conversationist.
I do not find such a one among those
whose names history has celebrated and
consecrated, as the names of wise men;
for, though Socrates was. undoubtedly, tin
wisest man of his time, and was certainly
a delightful talker, yet he should be con?
sidered a.master in conversation, rather
than the best pattern. I find such a one
only among a email company <.f men who,
from obscurity, went forth into public life,
the pioneer proclaimers of the religion of
the Gospel. Yes, as the great exemplar
in conversation, as in everything else per?
taining to human expression. 1 would
point to Jesus?the Master ! Never man
spoke like this man! How free from
harshness, from inappropriate merriment,
and from everything bordering on vul?
garity ! "When did Jesus speak amiss ?
What instance can you mention, in which
he indulged, either in flippant loquacity or
in idle gossip ? What occasion canyon
name, on which he cxibited, in conversa?
tion, either the fire of malevolent passion
or the weakness of a prejudiced mind ?
Arc }*ou young, and would 3-011 know
how to converse with learned men ? Bead
of the discourse which transpired in the
Jerusalem temple, between the young Je?
sus and the Jewish doctors. Would you
know how to converse in manhood?*Learn
how the Master talked, with friends and
foes, with good men and bad men, with
the wise and tho foolish, while reclining
at the table, while visiting the poor, while*
traveling from town to town, or while
crossing the sacred waters of Palestine, in
the performance of his mission of incom?
prehensible love ?
A Post Office Mistake.?Aman lately
went to the post office, and putting his
mouth to the delivery box, cried out,
" Louder." The clerk, supposingthe man
to be deaf, and that he was making- a re?
quest for him to speak louder, so that he
could hear, asked him in a very loud tone
the name of the person for whom he want?
ed tho letter. " Louder!" cried the man.
"What namo V yelled the clerk. " Loud?
er !" againcd bawled the man, who sup?
posed the clerk to be deaf. The clerk
took a long breath, and with all his might
again bawled out into the man's face the
same '-question : "What name ?" This
was done in so loud a tone that the echo
seemed to return from the far off hills.
The man started back in alarm, shouting
at tho very top of his lungs : "Louder,
sir, Louder! I told you Louder ! My
name is nothing else." "Oh! ah! ah!"
said the clerk, "your namo .is Louder, eh ?
Didn't think of that; here is your letter,
Mr. Louder, here's your letter."

'; Such was the extent and solidity of
the Roman roads?a single line of road
above four thousand Roman, and equal to
three thousand seven hundred and forty
English miles?and the four thousand
cities of the empire all connected with
roads of equal solidity besides. The
road_ which we propose is only half the
length of one chain of theirs. I mention
them for their magnificence?their gran?
deur?and as presenting an example wor?
thy of our imitation. The road I pro?
pose is necessary to us. and now. "We
want it now. The state of our posses?
sions on the Pacific demands it. The
time to begin has arrived. All the neces?
sary information is on hand. The means
are ready. The title to Oregon is set?
tled, and a government established there,
and population is growing up. California
is acquired : people are there : and a gov?
ernment. We have a fleet on that coast,
troops there and going. Streams of pop?
ulation are concentrating there. Since
the discovery of the New "World by Co?
lumbus, there has not been such an un?
settling of the foundations of society.
Not merely^ individuals and companies,
but communities and nations are in com?
motion, all bound to the setting sun?to
the gilded horizon of western America.
For want of an American road, the}- seek
foreign routes, far round, by sea and land,
to reach by an immense circuit what is a
part of their own land. Until we can get
a road of our own, we must use and sup?
port a foreign route ; but this is a tempo?
rary resource, demanded by the exigency
of the times, and until we can get our
own read)-. Never did so great an ob?
ject present itself to the acceptance of a
nation. We own the country from sea to
sea?from the Atlantic to the Pacific?
and upon a breadth equal to the length of
the Mississippi?and embracing the whole
temperate zone. Three thousand miles
across, and half that breadth, is the mag?
nificent parallelogram of our domain.
We can run a national central road,
through and through, the whole distance,
under our flag and under our laws. Mili?
tary reasons require us to make it; for
troops and munitions must go there. Po?
litical reasons require us to make it; it
will be a chain of union between the At?
lantic and Mississippi States. Commer?
cial reasons demand it from us; and here
I touch a boundless field, dazzling and
bewildering the imagination from its vast
ness and importance. The trade of the
Pacific ocean, of the western coast of
North America, and of eastern Asia, will
all take it^ track: and not only for OUr
sclves, but for prosperity. That trade of
India which has been shifting its chan?
nels from the time of the Phoenicians to
the present, is destined to shift once more,
and to realize the grand idea of Colum?
bus. The American road to India will
also become the European track to that
region. Tlic European merchant, as well
as the American, will fly across our con?
tinent on a straight line to China. The
rich commerce of Asia will flow through
our centre. And where has that com
inci'ce ever flowed without carrying
wealth and dominion with it? Look at
its ancient channels, and the cities which
it raised into kingdoms, and the popula?
tions which upon its treasures became re?
splendent in science, learning, and the
arts. Tyre, Sidor, Balbcc, Palmyra.
Alexandria, among its ancient emporiums,
attest the power of this commerce to en?
rich, to aggrandize, and to enlighten na?
tions. Constantinople, in the middle
ages, and in the time of the Crusades,
was the wonder of western Europe; and
ull because she was then a thoroughfare
of Asiatic commerce. Genoa and Venice,
mere cities, in later time, became the
mutch of kingdoms, and the envy of the
kings, from the mere divided streams of
this trade of which the}' became the
thoroughfare. Lisbon had her great day,
and Portugal her pre-eminence during the
little while that the discovery of the Cape
of Good Hope put her in communication
with the East. Amsterdam, the city of a
little territory rescued 1'rom the sea, and
the Seven United Provinces, not equal in
extent to ono of our lesser States, became
groat in arms, in letters, in wealth, and in
power; and all upon the East India trade.
And .London, what makes her the com?
mercial mistress of the world?what
makes an Island, no larger than one of
our first class States, the mistress of pos?
sessions in the four quarters of the globe,
a match for half of Europe, and domi?
nant in Asia? What makes all this, or
contributes most to make it, but this same
Asiatic trade? In no instance has it
failed to carry the nation or the people
which possessed it, to the highest pinna?
cle of weakh and power, and with it the
highest attainments of letters, arts, and
sciences. And so will continue to be. An
American road to India, through the heart
of our country, will revive upon its lino
all the wonders of Avhich we have read?
and eclipse them. The western wilderness
from the Pacific to the Mississippi, will
start iuto life under its touch. A long
line of cities will grow up. Existing cit?
ies will take a new start. The state of
the wrorld calls for a new road to India,
and it is our destiny to give it?the last
and greatest. Let us act up to the great?
ness of the occasion, and show ourselves
worthy of the extraordinary circumstan?
ces in which we are placed, by securing,
while we can, an American road to India,
central and national, for ourselves and
our posterity?now and hereafter, for
thousands of years to come."
F. R. S.
A few years since, there flourished in
one of the Southern cities on the Atlan?
tic coast, a certain original eccentric in?
dividual, whose sole occupation was the
pursuit of the oyster trade, of course un?
der difficulties. It was on a grand scale,
and "Old Shell," as he was nicknamed,
was a prime fovorite with all the young
bucks, roystering blades and fast men
about town. He was a passionate admir?
er of oysters in every shape. His food
was almost exclusively oysters. He bet
on oysters. He studied oysters. In fine,
he was emphatically an oyster-man.
-Old Shell" one summer, took it into
his head that a trip to the North would
be of advantage to his health, moral and
physical. To resolve to do anything and
to do it were with him one and the same
thing. He went!
On arriving at New York, he put up at
a fashionable hotel; and as he was a tall,
fine looking man, dressed well, and spent
his money freely, he soon became almost
as much ? favorite in the North as he was
in the South.
There was one thing about him that
puzzled every one. On the hotel book of
arrivals his name was entered in full with
the following capital letters, in a large
sprawling hand, attached : F. R. S. On
his cards the same mysterious letters ap?
peared ; "Mr. So-and-So, of such a city, F.
R. S." He never would explain the mean
! mg; and great of course, was the small
talk and chat-chat about it, The "gossip
market " rose above par in the course of
two or three days.
One morning a newly-conic English
gentleman, of middle age and grave as?
pect, was looking over the list of arrivals,
lie was struck by the mysterious letters, as
every one else had been. "F. R. S.,"
muttered he; "it can't be! Yet there the
letters arc. Who would have thought it ?
The clerk was called up and requested to
explain. lie knew nothing more than
that one of the boarders and lodgers had
put his name down with that handle at?
"Show him to me ?" said the English?
"There he goes now, sir!" said the clerk,
pointing to our hero.
Tho r.ext moment "Old Shell" felt him?
self gra.'iped by another hand, whilst his
arm went through a rapid and vigorous
, motion, familiarly known as the "pump
handle action." It was tho Englishman;
his face beaming with cordiality.
" Delighted to meet you, sir. Had not
tho slightest idea of seeing one of our so?
ciety on this side of the water! When were
you a member? My mcmoiy is so defec?
" Member of what ?" said "Old Shell,"
half surprised, half angry.
"O, don't be so modest my dear sir!"
"Modest, the deuce! What society ?'
"No uashfulness, now ! You are a Fel?
low, I. know."
"Blast my buttons, stranger!" exclaim?
ed "Shell" thoroughly indignant; "do you
call me a fellow '!"
"Fellow of the Royal Society, sir. Y'ou
mistake my meaning. Fellow of the Royal
Society of London!"
"I'm no Londoner, man; I come from
down South, I do ! I am an oysterman, I
"Why, what on earth docs F. R. S.
mean, then attached to your name?" said
the astonished Englishman, science and
surprise beaming from his countenance.
"Well, stranger, I don't care if I do tell
you. You sco, I like oysters, I do; and
F. R. S. means adzackly nothing more
nor less than Fried, Roasted and Stewed !"

A Yankee Story.
Once while steaming down the Ohio, I
heard one that was genuine. I had been
sitting in an arm chair under the lee of
one of the chimneys, and on the hurri?
cane deck, reading a late novel, in 'which
I was so much absorbed that I did no no?
tice what was passing around me, until
my attention was attracted by a Yankee
and a Cocknej-, who were evidently try
ins: to find out who could tell the most
The Cockney led the way; and turning
the subject upon hog killing, told of a
gang of six hands in Merrie England,
who would kill six hogs a minute, and
""Wal, squire," responded the Yankee^
'T believe I know o' somethin' a leetle
ahead o' that, notwithstandiV that's a
party big 'un."
" Wall; you see, my frien', I've got an
old Uncle Nate, my mother's brother, who
got up a little the cussedust masheen to
clean hogs with that you ever did see.
I It want like nothin' in ali Natur', but it
worked mity slick. You see, Uncle Nate
spent his hull life at it, and got it just
e'en, a'mast perfect. He'd drive a hog
in, and wun knife would stick it; and
tlien hot water'd squirt on to it: then an?
other knife'd scrape off all the brussels,
and take out the innards ; and a consarn
ed thing would cut it up, and drop it into
the bar'l cleen dun. Wal, you see, a fel?
ler cum down all the way from Bosting
to see the thing go; for he was in the
pork packing up thair, and didn't know
but what he might want tu git wun.
Wal. sur, Uncle Nate got the thing in
runnin' order, and then fetched the
feller out tu look at it. I happened in
just then, so Uncle Nate got me to drive
in the pig, while he let on steam. He
hadn't mor'rt touch the lever,till the thing
started, and you'd ought to bin thair.
Yen kuowa pig allers squeels when he is
stuck/ Wal, sur, I heerd that pig squcel,
and I heerd 'im fall into the bar'l after he
was cut up; but, I swar to man. I never
could tell which happened first."
"Will you 'ave something to drink with
me, Mr. Filkins?" asked the Cockney.
''Don't care if I du. korncl," replied Mr
Filkins. And as they went down aftei
a drink. I again turned to my novel.
