"?URSPAY MORNING, L? 10BER 31. 1867.
[FOR THE DAILY XE??.]
Toe ?rave? are ?Lill within this tranquil bay.
The WWW ire still in shadow and in li;;ht :
The tide lilis slowly all the suu-smit day,
The tid? ebbs slowly all the star-girt nie.Lt;
There is u solemn calm that ia not rest,
A pall cf awful stillness o'er my lile.
A strange dull lethargy that clasps mo. lest
My ix>ul should waka and tremble into strife.
I see her as she walis through gloom and gleam.
As Earth, with varying brightness, strews her way;
But see, with dazsd eyes, as in a dream.
And raiso weak hands and doubt, and bless, and pray
But when I fain would rise and go to ht r
There grows a darkness like the mist? ot Death.
And I rest here like tired way-farer.
Who, in a s: range land, sadly tarrieth.
I have no heart to rse, no s-trongth to strive.
The life ia withered te the sapless tree;
Oh I for some seer tins wearied soul to shrive
Where once Love's strength wa? as the strength o
Before me lies the haven, but my prow
Points onwards to thc far untravelled main,
And at the helm, with pale, distorted brow.
And stern, set gaze, I know the pilot Paiu.
Let me go hence ! A ripple stirs the wave,
And far unto tho West the dark pure sea
Opens wide pathways to that bounteous grave
She hath for homeless wanderers like me.
Let me go hence, and leave her where she stands.
Love could not move her, neither now shall woe;
Life shall be sweet rt those far sunset lands
Where she is. ot : 'tis finished, let me go.
O. H. S.
Gossip from Lonclou.
The following extracts from the Loudou Letter
of the New York Times, possess general interest:
THE BBITISH MINISTES AT WASHINGTON.
The new Minister whom wo send to you is Edward
Thronton, Esq., lately British envoy at Rio Jane?
iro. Rather odily vou may call him in America
if you arc so minded, by a much more senorous
title. Here he is Edward Thronton. C. B.-witl
you he mav be Count o'" Cassilhaa. Mr. Thron
ton's father had this title contorted upon him by
the King of Portugal, for three lives, andGoorge I\
sanctioned its adoption with the usual conditou
that it should not be borne in England. I am
afraid some of the papers will have a tendency to
call the new Minister Count Thornton. Ho has
had a long experience of a diplomatist's duties
but his appointment is generally looked upon as a
mistake. To-dav's Spec.ator and tho Times ob?
ject to tho choice, totally apart from Mr. Thron
ton's individual merits, which are considerable
It is felt that a man of greater eminence should
have been sent to you-as tho Times outs it
"The Government ought to have studied to avoid
sending a minister to America whose merits are
only known to tho official class, and whom every
one else in England is obliged to ask, 'who is he?'
Poor Sir Frederick Bruco was buried one day ?his
,veek, in tho family vault of the Elgins, a large
Lumber of spectators having assembled to wit?
ness the rites.
MISCELLANEOUS MAT TEES.
A statute of Mr. Peabody, tho banker-I would
add "the philanthropist, " but that it seems like a
label of a trade-is to have a statute erecte i to
him in London. The work has been instrusted to
Mr. Story, the American sculptor. It is said that
afsite will be given by the city near the Royal Ex?
Many of your readers will be interested to learn
that, the work commenced by the late Mr. Joseph
Parkes, upon the authorship of the Junius letters,
baa been completed by Hermann Merivale, and
will shortly be published hv Mr. Bently. In his
book it is proved that Sir Philip Francis was
Junina. The last time Isa* Mr. Parkes-only a
few weeks before his death-he showed me a
great pile of MS. which he had prepared, and
wnich he drew from a tiu box with alt the gentle
fondness of an author for the "children of his
brain." He read a portion to me, and gave mo an
account of some papers discovered among Sir
Philip Francis's collection, which to my mind es?
tablished beyond all possibility of doubt the fact
that Junius and Francis v. ero one and the 3ame
person. The direct evidence is surprismgly
strong; but the collateral evidence is conclusive.
I presume the narrative Mr. Parkes gave me (and
also I beuevo, at an erber period to my friend
Mr. Thurlow Weed, whose valued acquaintance I
owed to Mr. Parkes,) is incorporated in tno two
volumes about to be published. The letters of Sir
Philip to bis daughter would alone bo sufficient to
set this old literary dispute at rest.
Among otner new books presently to be publish?
ed we have in Mr. Murray's announcements
"eghty years of Republican Government in the
United States," by Louis J. Jennings, The latter
work is to be in ono volume, post, 8vo, and is
divided into chapters on the theory of the Govern?
ment, the State, and the Union,' the Executive,
the Cabinet, the Legislative, the Judiciary, uni?
versal suffrage, the voluntary principle in religion,
4c. The Christmas number of All the Year Round
will be written this year entirely by Charles Dick?
ens and Wilkie Collins.
New Orleans and the Yellow Fever.
The New Orleans correspondent of the Cincin
lati Commercial writes as follows in regard to the
aausea of Yellow fever in that city
"The anxiety felt for the appearance of a frost
here is really painful, and qui e a number of 'reli?
able gentlemen' have declared within the past week
that they have seen the veritaole artic e. It is not
probable, however, that Wnite Jack has been seen,
but 'out of the abundance of the heart tho mouth
speaKetb.' Early in the morning the houses, trees
and grass are covered with a very heavy de"r,
which in the gray light of the morning, with tho
air cool and piercing, is apt to be mistaken for
?.Many of our old residents, who havo been off
during the Summer, have returned, and many
new faces are seen on our streets, which is consi?
dered very imprudent, as these persons, coming
direct from the cool and fresh air of a Northern
climate, are good subjects for tho epidemic. At
Magnolia, Cooper's Springs, Jackson, and other
points on the Jackson Railroad, thousands of our
'birds of passage' are now stopping, all anxiously
awaiting the appearance of cold weather, when
they can return to their homes and business with
safety. The first good frost would fill up our city
"The weather has been moderating very much
the past two or three days, and it is now quite
warm again. The fever has abated considerably,
and the mortality is not greater now than when
the disease was tiret declared epidemic, while tho
number of new coses is very small. At the How?
ard Association, during the week, thay havo bad
fewer calla for assistance in sickness, but a large
number of applicants from cases of destitution,
persons who nave recovered from sickness, but aro
now without the necessary articles of Life. A
newly arrived citizen met an old merchant who
has been here all Bummer, and after the usual
salutations thc former sa id : 4 L. very body is talk?
ing about the fever-nothing tit tho "fever. Since
I got back I have heard nothing else* 'Ahl we
have had a severe time,' wa3 the reply. '? never
have Been such a time. I tell you, as long as 1
am in business here I will never spend another
summer here.' This is the spirit that keeps New
Orleans down-make a little money and then go
North to spend it, leaving their business to clerks
and agents for the summur, and in the meantime
the swamps at our very doors are unreclaimed; our
streets are without drainage, and tue management
of our city affairs is left to strangers and property
less sharpers. Of all the theories advanced in re?
lation to the origin and cause of yellow fever, the
most sensible ia, that it is a disease natural to a
Southern climate; a native, not an imported mala?
dy. We have it here every summer, and its preva?
lence and fatality are governed by the stato ol' the
atmosphere, consequent upon the condition of our
city and the surrounding country, and upon the
number of those persons nere unacc imated.
"When General Butler came here wi-h his
army, it was in May, just at the timo when our
' birds of passage merchants ' begin to think
about packing up for their Northern tour ; bu. as
he carno to stay all summer,' he caused a
thorough cleaning ot the streets. It is said he
is great on ' cleaning out ' little matters of light
financial consequence, but it cannot be denied
that Le had the streets put in thorough order,
and kept them so. All tho time an efficient
force of laborers were employed on our streets,
the shovels and coarse brooms wore seen all over,
and carts were kept busy carrying off the dirt
and rubbish. The expense of the Street Depart?
ment, under General Butler, I have seen stated a:
$250,000, which, I presume, includes the exponte
of the improvements made on the levee, where a
great deal of filling in was done. This sum com?
paros very favoratly with the amount asked by the
present administration, who will probably expend
$300,000 per annum, and keep tho streets and
landings in a state of filth and rottenness all the
"Under the management of General Butler there
was no epidemic of yellow fever or other disease,
and the point presented is, that if our city id kep:
clean, and the suburbs improved and well drained,
we shall havo no such scourge as bas visited us
this year; on i ne contrary, our bill of health will
compare favorably with that of any other city iii
SACBIKCE OK LIFE IN CHINA.-A correspondent
of the San Francisco Bulletin speaks of thc terri?
ble carnage of the lateaopuig robellton. One
district is described which yielded ninety thousand
chests of lea per annum before tho war, and is
now a desert waste. A belt of bud four hundred
miles long by two hundred miles wide is Literally
without an inhabitant. The writer savs:

-Richmond papers contain thc protest tiled
with General Schofield against tho counting of
any votes received in Richmond after sunsot on
Wednesday of last week. John H. Gilmer, whose
name ta appended to tho document, quotes from
the Supplemental Reconstruction Bill to back his
protest, Asserts that "palpable frauds" were com?
mitted, and charges that Colonel Rose, superin?
tendent of the election, waB "guilty of the gross
eat misconduct, rudeness, and official insolence to
the very best men, and this without provocation."

The leading topics in Wall street arc thc continued
ease of money, the dullness ot government securities,

C. 1)1 (KEII.VS PATENT
For Instantaneous Detachment of
Horses from Carriages.
THIS INGENIOUS AND VERY USEFUL INVENTION,
which has been patented iu the United States,
France and England, is now odored by the subscriber to
thc public, feeling assured they will find it, upon exami?
nation, one ol the greatest inventions ot the uge.
Prominent among its advantages are:
FIRST-The facility with which horses may be harness?
ed to or unharnessed from a Carriage, also renderiug it
unnecessary for the person unharnessing to pass between
or behind the horses as is customary, thus avoiding any
liability of being kicked.
SECOND-In case of a horse falling, he may be looked
from thc carriage in ono second, without the driver leav?
ing his seat It is so simple in its operation that a child
can work it.
THIRD AND GREATEST-Ln cases of horses taking fright,
becoming unmauagable or running away, the terrible
consequences which so frequently follow may be all avoid?
ed by thia simple application to carriages, as the horses
can be loosed from the carriage "ma twinkling," and the
carriage is quickly and safely stopped.
Mr. C. DUCREUX gave several public exhibitions. The
great favor and praiso manifested by the public on these
occasions, is one ot the evidences of a popular apprecia?
tion of its merits.
Terms may be known and orders received for applying
the patent to carriages, or purchase of state nights, bv
