The salt sea wind is a Merry-maker,
Rippling the wild Mutt's dai?ed reach :
The quick surf glides from tbe arching breaker,
And foams on the tawny beach.
Oat where the long reef g'ooms and glances,
Ane tosses sunward its d'anioud rain,
" Morn has pierced with her golden lances
The dizzy Ug?thouso piae.
Gladdened by clamors of infinite surges,
Heedless what bl ow or Ralo mayde,
The white cut's float where the ocean verges
Blend with a glimmer of blue.
I w.i ?ch how thc curtaining vapor Fettles
Bim on the tireless plumes far borne;
TiU ta nt they gleam as a blossem'? petals,
Blown through the spacious morn.
THE D ARIEN CANAL.
Thc Toll Gate of two Hemispheres
What the enterprise -?viii ?ave to the
Commerce of the World.
The Boston Post, in its commeuts upon Mr.
Cusbing's treaty with tbo Colombian govern
ment, in reference to the Danen ship canal,
The statistics of commerce themselves sap
ply the safest suggestion-, respecting the best
modo of accomplishing this grandest enter?
prise of modern days. It has been estimated
that the annual value of a ship canal across
the Isthmus would be fullv thirty-five million
?ldollars to the United States alone; that to
Prance it would be a saving ot more than two
millions; to England of nearly ton; and
to the rest of the world about a mil?
lion and a half-making m all an advan?
tage or about fifty millions in money per
year. This includes the savings to commerce
in every way-time,"wagoe, outfits, wear and
tear,, insurance and interest. Admiral Davis
fully indorsed this statement ir? the report he
rendered on a ship canal, in 16G6. Another
method would be to make an estimate by t'.e
amount of our tonnage, both foreign and do?
mestic, and reckon up what would be the ad?
vantage on that basis. Cargoes would not, of
course, be included in the statement, 'i he sum
total of the tonnage of thc United Stales in
1861 wns 5 339 818 tons. Dividing it equally
between foreign and domestic, as was very
nearly the tact, it is estimated that, ot the two
and three-quarter million tons of foreign ton?
nage, two millions would ccr.ainly pass through
this commercial conduit across'the Isthmus.
Putting the value of the vessels, without their
cargoes, at a hundred millions in g Id, and
reckoning a saving of ninety dnys in every year
on shortened voyages, wo secure a saving in
interest of a million and three-quarters in gold,
at seven per centum.
We ?ce, then, some fraction of tbe profit and
power which is to full into our hands if wo fol?
low out thu line drawn by these suggestions.
It will not do for us to embark in such aa en?
terprise in tho niggardly spirit of mere money?
makers. The aJvantage is to bc for the com?
merce of tho world. Tue vessels of all nations
ar? to pour their streams of commerce through
this viial artery. We must entertain only
broad ideas in eiiterius upon ita accomplish?
ment. Our own advantage will bc liest secured
as wo aro liberal in our own. views of the
benefit to other uation?. We should rather
regard ourselves as tb sent of the two
opposite quarters of tL^ trlobe. becoming
the frctor. the carrier and tbe commis?
sion merchant of both. Tho success ot
General Cusbing's mission revives all tho
Speculations of tho past concerning this revo?
lution in *ho tides of the world'.- commerce,
and excites hopes which will only prove too
well based when this noble plan shall have
been begun and pusbed forward to completion.
We stand exactly in the great commerchl
highways; and we aro more than blind and
d<*af if wo refuse to go forward iu consummat?
ing that comprehensive scheme of commercial
power and prosperity wbicb bas for its three
great pillars, a traus-eontinental railway sys?
tem, tbe cutting of a ship canal through the
Istbmud, and tho establishment of a sate and
capacious naval station in tho West Indies.
THE RETIRING PRESIDENT.
Hie Last Public Words as thc Occupant
of the White House.
The committee appointed by the City Coun?
cils of B tltimore to present to President John?
son a copy of a resolution passed recently, in?
viting bim Lo visit Baltimore on his return to
Tennessee, called upon the President on Mon?
day morning. In responso to the remarks of
Mayor Banks, the President said :
Gentlemen of the. Committee-I have no res?
ponse to make on this occasion further than to
express the feelings awakened in mo by the
remarks you have madoin presenting the reso?
lution adopted by tho councils of your city,
and in dom? so I shall confine myself to re?
tuning my sincere and heartfelt* thanks for
the high compliment you have been plcasea to
pay me. It would be doing myself injustice to
affect indifference to thc evidence given hero
to-day tbat my conduct as a publie servant is
approved of by my fellow-citizens. Ido feel
flattered and much gratified at this apprecia?
tion of my services, coming as it does from so
intelligent and estimable a source. I thank you
most coidial.y.I thank you heartily and sincere?
ly f jr tbe words of comfort and commendation
you have given me. Language cannot givout?
terance to the gratitude that fills my heart.
To feel that 60 many ot my intelligent and
patriotic fellow-citiZ3us should thus manifest
for ?nea feeling o'*regard as I am stepping out
of power, is a pledge so rare that 1 will romem
ber it to the latest day of my life. I must be
permitted to add, and Ido it' not from a spirit
of vanity or egotism, tbat I feel more highly
honored in lavin? down tho authority which
has been entrusted to my keeping than I did
when I first assumed it. I am glad to take
my place once more among the people, it
whom my trust has ever been placed, audi
can say that, although I bavo not buen ablu to
restore to them tbo blessings of peace and
prosperity to bo found only in a, faithtnl adhe?
rence to the constitution of our country, I
have always kopt that sacred instrument as mv
guide. Mv bole a.in has been tor its preser?
vation and tho permanent good of the whole
Heel more prido in coming of the peopb,
and of bearing in com mon with them my share
of the buiduns which all of us are calle 1 upon
to endure, than I would feel in any office ot
honot and profit tbat could be conferred upon
me. Lot us, then, keep always in view the
constitution, which should ever command our
hiebest respect and re verene; fur wiieti re?
spect for it vanishes, whore shall wc look tor
succor? I have frequently said heretofore that
my only aim wa* tbe preservation of -ho con?
stitution and the advancement ot the public
good. I repeat it here, mw liiat I am about
Bunendoring tbo powers of tbo Chief Execu?
tive, all is pone unless tho constitution of our
country is saved; and it should be sartd with?
out the shedding of blood. To ra* civil honors
aro far more agreeable than (Le incense thai
arises from tho tiolcl of carmine. I mun be
permitted to Bay, stepping ss l shall very sot n
out of power and authority, tbat the path ov. r
which I have trodden i.s not stained with thc !
blood of my fellow-man. I have Ntriven to I
walk in the ways of peace and good will to all j
men. Let us turn our thoughts oi the preser?
vation oJ our country by peaceful means.
1 would to-day rxthcr wear on mv lace tbe
furrows marked there by ciro and responsi?
bility m the aiduous paths of duty tha:i
the glittering opauletto or br my eide tho
jingling sword ?ts tbe insignia of ruthless
war. Let us indoctrinate our people w:lh
tho bo'tef that the constitution is the
palladium, of our liberty, our only safeguard I J
tbe hour of peril. Lat us cling to it a? tbe

OUR RELATIONS WI TH ENGL AXE.
The cono^pondtneo between our govern?
ment and Great Britain for the last fifteen
month?, relating to tbe citizenship question,
the San Juan boundary question, and the Ala?
bama claims question, has been printed and
makes a document of ono hundred and fifty
pages, of which oue-ha.'f is devoted to Fcnisu
and citizenship questions. The following ab?
stract of it is interesting, as showing the
promptings and directions under which Hon.
Beverdy Johnsen acted in tho negotiations :
The instructions of the State Department to
Mr. Reverdy Johnson, da' od on tho 20th ot last
July, dir cet bim to press a settlement at the
earliest possible day i tho citizenship ques?
tion; then to disoose ol ie San Juan boundary j ?j
matter, and finally take up the subj c t of mu- ?1
tuai claims. He was not to do anything definite !
With this last mat.er until the other two ques-1 .St
tiona were ia process of settlement. Mr. John?
son met Lord Stanley first on the 10th of
S"pten>ber last. He fonnd him specially
anxious to fix np the citizenship question, and
tho protocol was signed on the 9th of October,
and approved by the President or. the 23th of
that month. The San Juan treaty was put into
shape about the middle of October. Early
in November Mr. Seward wrote a letter
asking that it bo amended so as to
leave the wholo subjoct explicitly to the
President of Switzerland. He was at first
very anxious to have this treaty signed,
but in the latter part of this month he direct?
ed that Mr. Johnson's signature b3 withheld
until the ques ion about the claima treaty was
settled. The first uralt of the claims conven?
tion was signed bv L>rd Stanley anti Mr. John?
son on the 10th of November. It consisted of
twelve articbs, and provided, among other
things, that the commission lor the settlement
of thc claims should meet at London. Mr.
Seward on the27ih of November wrote a long
letter taking deckled ground against the terms
of the document. He said that tho commission
must meet in Washington; that our commis?
sioners must Do confirmed by tho Senate, and
tbat all- ?"aims should bc treated on the same
basis. Mr. Johnson bad consented that the
Alabama claims must bo settled by a unani?
mous voto of the commission, while the
others were to bo settled by a majority
vote, and that the arbitrator on the Alabama
chum* must be agreed upon by both govern?
ments., while in the other cases he could be
chosen by lot. Mr. Seward objected to all this,
said tliat Mr. Johnson bad allowed discrimina?
tion against the Alabama claims, nud pretty
strongl . intimated that Lord Stanley had bei'?
a good deal too sharp for our jninister. Mr.
Johnson replied rather petnletrtly to Mr. Sew?
ard's criticism, and said that be thought Lon?
don much the best place for thc moeting of tho
commission, to which the Secretary answered:
.Tn view ot the highly disturbed national sen?
sibilities, a meeting' at Washington is indis?
Mr. Johnson had his first interview with
Lord Clarendon on the 15th of December, and
at that time showed him what Mr. Seward had
said ?bout the Stanley treaty. Lord Clarendon
. ok the mattrr into consideration, and on the
22d of December sent to Mr. Thornton, his
minister hero, an entirely new draft. Mr.
Seward found this quite to his liking, suggest?
ed two or three minor chances by telegraph,
and had that and thc San Juan treaty signed
on the 14th o' last month. A great, deal of
corresponding was done by cable, and some of
Mr. Seward's dispatches containtd seven or
eight hundred words each. In his letter of
tho 15th of January, enclosing the two treaties,
Mr. Reverdy Johnson alludes to the positions
talton two years ago by England, mid says that
he has reason to believe that the abandonment
of these positions is due to the growing frieud
ly feeling for the United States which has been
so strongly exoressed since his arrival, and
then conveys thc pleasant information that,
anticipating" such an effect, ho determined to
loso no time in cultivating tho feeling, and
this was thc solo motivo of tho speeches he
made fast fall in various parts of England.

AV HAT BUICK POMEROY DID "WHITE
AND WHAT HE DID NUT WRITE.
Eight o'clock, and he ia not here yet 1 How
dreary this little room docs seem, and I am no lone
tome I 'l en o'clock. How I with he would come.
It is so lonely here with tho children asleep ! Once
he loved to Etay with mr, bnt now, alas ! Twelve
o'clock, and I am so tared, I cannot sleep 1 My
heart aches and grows sad. I am growing old, per?
haps. May be my face is not as fair as once, but my
heart is as warm, though it is often sad.
ABB YOU DYSPEPTIC,
Nervou?, jaundiced, low spirited, weak, or are you
siok and don't know what ails you; then try Planta?
tion Bitters and our word for it, it will cure you.
v.liat charms can he find in that foul-scented
room, by that dusty table, cutting and dealing those
dusty cards, filling himself with poison, tainting his
breath, ruining his mind, undermlniug his eonstitu
tion, planting si-eds of disease, squandering his
money, douri ci with smoke, tired with excitement.
Is this happiness ? ie this life ? Is this our mission?
Oh 1 I am so tired, do coxe home.
This delicious cordial and fine tonic is now hailed
by thousands cs the great health giver and re?
storer. Resolve to buy a bottle, and don't sleep on
it. Bc wise in time. Sold by all druggists.
"DO YOU GO DOWN TOWN TO-NIOHT, MT PET ?"
'.No darling, I hove labored enough to-day. Why
should I flee from home, from happiness, from thee?
Life is tull short to love- too short to squander. I
love the pbot'graph of my heart foo well. No dar?
ling, my heart is herc; Lere Itt me keen it company."
Are always pure, reliable. Qboy arc strengthening
and Invigorating, and are ET haunted Na;ure's great
restorer. As an agrocublo and p'easaut tonic and
appetizer, they cannot be excel ed.
THEY WHO ABE HI CU,
Are they who mind their own business. Find a hap?
py man or woman, and th: affairs of another trouble
them but a little. It is none of your business if the
minister kisses on? of tho sisters or one of tho sis?
ters thus B ilutes the minister. It cannot effect you
when a man yon know rails on a uir! you don't know,
or one you do. What if ther . is kissing behind thc
door, in tunnels, and when tho night is dark ol thc
vest?bulo of thc "burch, or oven ever tuc gate. Would
you not do thc same thing if thc chance was offered ?
A WINE GLASS PULL
OfFJantotiou Bitters, taken throe Hines a day, before
each local, will make the dame of life again buen
brightly, and illuminate a once wretched existence.
For ladles lt is aa elegant and -jemie stimulant, just
such as they require.
"I WENT TO TUE LAND OF STEADY HABITS."
I wanted to hand several "bricks" down t.i pos?
terity, and was told by fathor th it with a New Eug
'and girl lor a wi'e, I could raise more children, grow
moro onions, sein more eels, sing moro psalms,
kn JW mote of what wan going on in thc neighbor,
hood, hear moro Scandal, sleep Im ni?hls, have
more relatives, eat more teaus, love myself and hate
other? more, and get more out ol' a dollar, than any
other sort of woman m this happy country vo-called.
PLANTATION B ' ITERS.
Is made from pure Mt. Croix Rum and Calisaya
Bark (known the world over tor its cuiativo proper?
ties), and will fortily tho syst m against disease,
caused by change ot water and diet. If you are in?
clined to dyspepsia, try it. If you have thc chills
and fever, or any kindred disease, by all means take
Plantation Bitters. They are 60ld by all diuggists
AND HE HAD A FEMALE CHILD.
Whose name wos He\a Brightwaters and who was
twenty-nine years old; who wore red stockings, red
garters, metal lipped shu. s, preen spectacles, and
thu prettiest red hair thc world ever se ?yen on or
into. Uexa, a true New England gil, chewed wads of
pine gum. und sweetened her biotli with onions.
Uexa wasn't so mock handsomer than ndoll LS tn
make thu doll faint, but shu wa- intelligent ; in fact, in
loliigoucc was her best hold but one; she wis great
on making baby garments, aud bad her inuits tull,
packef away, ihut shu might be reidy us ?ildug
when the evil hour drew nigh, us she trusted it won.d
from year lo year.
IF THU LADIES BUT KNEW

to us, we candijl/ believe one ha1!" of the- weakness,

JAMES MAR>H, Est}.,
No. 15J West Firsl-i-.trcrt, New York, says ho
has three children. Tbo flr-t twa are weak and
puny, his wile having been unable to nurso er
ait-nd them; but she had taken Plantation Bit?
ters for Ibo last ten years, aud h is a child now IS
months ui?. which she h ts nursed and re red her?
sait, and b lb arc beatty and well. Plantation Bit
teri is invaluable to mothers.
V.liiTER, MT BOY,
Hore comes u man wno wu? once rich. He had
n i-.--OH, und money, aud a loving ;*..ini!y, and posi?
tion, and iiillutnc.-, and ?ell-reepect. and iuiegriiy,
a.ni a l'uiuro ol usefulness bet?re him. Bur, my
boy, ito dr.n't look like it now. He was elected to au
important artice. He fjrgot thc lesaous Ins good
motlier taught bim, und was assied by designing
polili ians to eell his vote to a pait) of swindlers; he
could not for the life of him giro articulation to teat
little word, and su he tell.
HOW OPTEN 1)0 WF. iiz\n THE COMPLAINT.
FI om mellier and fi I her, that thc sot: or daughter is
not wu.1; that thoyhavo no appetite; that the; feel
languid; that the bead ache-all thc tinto; that they
are growing thiu nod K-chlo, and that they have no
lite nor energy lott Aud the qtestioi.s aro ellen
asked. What .-hall I do for tm rn? What hill I fire
them': Hiir answer is, let them try Plantation' Rit?
ters icodew.ely, three times a day, and our word
for it they will recover.
AND HERE V ALTE It, IS A YOUNO MAN,
Ju?t like you and us, my bay. He has wit, sense, |
education, intelligence, friends, ambition, and is I
loved. He has a knowledge of tho world, ucqiured
by mixing with its people Ho Lan ambition and
tue warne add in which to win licuor, fimo and dis- ,
Unction, as had Franklin, Fultou, More", and a host !
of othors. He is naturally Eixart, but. Valler, n.y
bey, as he meet? us do you see the excess ofmoia
ture iu his eye. tho little puffy ridge nuder it, thc
gradual turning of Ibo beautilul corners of the
mouth his mother so loved to kiss. Theso, my boy,
tell a sad talc of early ehipwreck, of disease, of pre?
mature death, of neglected and squandered gifts.
