THE COLUMBiA PHONIX.

**. - What's .Left?
On! t hus e^pell'd"from Eden's bowers,
Where all was love ?nd ^joy of 3'ore,
Shall I agata seek other flowers,
And peril all my peace "ojiee mere?
Siiiic iu the lure of luscious eyes,
Yield to the spell itt muslo's charms,
And dream again of Paradise
lu woman's love and woman's arms?
. V\ ii at tho h er sm iie be beaming .bright,
"And soft lier voice as music's own,
" The soul once reft of loving light,
Kuet make its weary way alone.
ThS1 victim long of mocking bowers,
. *Jt W li ?re wo was through illusion taught, ' .
He weil may dread lest other flowers
Shall sting with thorns he never sought
Wha, with bis memories of the past,
In midnight hours, a mournful throng,
t. But trembles lest tho trumpet's blast
. ' Succeed the s wee test spells of song!.
Who, .with each, srfibsidingr strain,
But feels some memory* keen and sharp?
Nor hears anew the shriek Of pain, "
lu all the pauser^of the harp..
Difficulties.
?v^ry man in the cou rae of his lift will
meet with difficulties and the only diffe?
rence among men is bow they overcome
them.' A young man may b?^. very egre?
ts* fal to. inj are no one.- He may settle
punctually with his tailor and washerwoman
.md square accounts with his landlady once
a week;. He may make justice and punc?
tuality the study of his whole life, and. yet
in spite of ali, he will occasionally fi .d*
. h i niself* assailed, as if he were attempting
to injure a?d defraud the whole creation.
The more he refrains from cheating others,
the more others seek to cheat him,' while MOJJ
unfrequently the selfish schemer will be the
more popular, man. The very fact that ?he
is peaceably disposed will often induce
?thers: to molest him. So that certain
number'of quarrels and annoying circum?
stances to get into in the collrae of bis life
andi the real question is how get * through
them and out of them to the best ad vari
tag* .
It will be hard to persuade men of what is
unquestionably the great aud eternally true
method of treating" those who are injurious
and Unjust in their fulfilment of any of the
relations of life-i.% e.. to poc&t the wrong
*as quietly as possible. Persona who are
^gireatly and deliberately unjust, are really
too low for the notice or retaliation; of? a
just man. It is certainly no reflection on
the character of a gentleman, if he decline
- to fight any drunken blackguard he may
meet in the street, preferring to step out oi
. his way and give up. the ground. This is
the cady safeaway of dealing with the unjust
and injurious. Get out of their way; hav<
nothing to do with them in future.

is the punishment they will feel the most
?. A quarrel.elevates them to your level, 01
rather tiuks to theirs. Besides, they
will have arts and tricks that will give their
the advantage-T-Hrta that foti cannot prac

By no means-only step aside and wait a

POOR SOIL.-An inquisitive Yankee was_j
stand in ?* at the tavern door, in the lower
part of Jersey, watching a funeral pass by.
At thc head of ii, was a large manure cart,
moving along very slowly,*and making no

cart, and turning to a Philadelphian who |
was standing by,-lie remarked:
1 'I guess the folks ai nt very perlite about]
here; tu hum whet? I live, they always |
turn out for a funeral.'
, 'Oh, that's a part of the procession,'
remarked the Philade'phian, gravely.
'Du te'J? Yeou don't say so! Heow!'
exclaimed the astonished Yankee.
'Why, you eee, it is a very poor, sandy
soil about here, and nothing com?-? up they
plant, unless they manure it well; so, when
they bury a fellow, they throw a whole oarr j
load in the grave, to*make him rise at the
judgment day.' /*
