TllE ZDD YST0E LIGHTHOUSE. The Ed-
dystonc Lighthouse has now withstood the
bterms of a contury a solid monumeut o
1 he genius of its architect aad builder
Sometimes, when the s'ea rolls in with
more than ordinary fury from the Atlan
tic, driven up the Channel by the force of
a southwest wind, the lighthouse is en-
, velopedinspray and its light is momenta
rily obscured. But again it is seen shin
ing clear like a etar across the waters, a
warning and a guide to the homeward
hound. Occasionally, when struck by a
strong wave, the central portion shoots up
the perpendicular shaft and Jeaps quite
over the lantern. At other limes a& tre
mendous wave hurls itself upon the light
house, as if t force- ft from its foundation.
T-he report of the shock to one within is
like that of a cannon; the windows rattle;
jtheiioors slam; and the boilding vibrates
1 and trembles to its very base. But the
tremor felt throughout the -lighthouse in
such a case, instead of being fa sign of
weakness, is the strongest proof or the
unity of the fabric in all jts parts. Lives

Marysville, March 29, 1862.
TUB UKION SALUTATORY.
In engaging in a pursuit or public' filter
prise of anyv kind it is common for-us, the
world over, to ask, is there reallany need,
anydemaad,-any convenience to he suited
ny want or market that we can supply,
and by doing which will be alike beneficial
to the people at largo, the community
around us and ourselves. If at first, we do
not extend the limits of the enquiry much
beyond self, we soon discern that our hopes
of success are ill-founded ior to surely
and ultimately make progression in any
public undertaking we must have the co
operation of the people. Bul'to the point.
Is there newspaper wanted at this place?
Assured of this want and satisficdas to
the necessity of supplying it, we issue the
first number of The Big Blue Uxiox.
And in commencing the publication of
this, the new series of a newspaper in this
place, we have but few words to say.
Some may think it our duty to issue,
first and foremost, a lengthy prospectus,
setting for.h the principles by which The
Uifio- shall be guided, its aims and ob
jects, a sort of forerunner, which taking
time by the forelock, will layoff the work
and predict future events with unerring
precision. But; assuring our readers that
it will endeavor to advocate every interest
which is beneficial to the people, and that,
politically, it will support" no party which
does not carry the fhgand keep step to the
music of the Union," we are willing that
'from time to time at it may appear it shall
speak for itself.
Whether there will or will not be any
Jtepuolicaii party after this war, we know
not. For the present they have laid aside
their party name and distinctive features
of organization, and with their chosen
leader at their head engaged in the work
of crushing treason. Synonymous as the
two terms Republican and Union, as they
are now understood, are, they have, how
ever, in most instances, chosen the latter,
that they might more closely and effectual
ly ally persons of all parties, unite upon
the good platform Constitution the loyal,
ihe patriotic, who are engaging and dis
charging with them the paramount duty of
sustaining the Government and restoring
throughout the land the supremacy of the
laws. And this we are assured will be
done. Recent events victories gained
and their sjure and steady advance con
vince us that the lieaft of the rebellion is
being pierced, and that the usurpation rag
will soon be stricken from every rebel
People of Marysville and of Marshall
County ! we trust that you have long since
arrayed yourselves on the side of the Un
ion that your hearty sympathies are for it
aud the Right. The people of Kansas are
mostly a loyal people; wherever the seces
sion spirit does exist it is of no iifluence
and is ashamed to show itself. We do not
expect to have to conibat with that spirit
at this time or place. We ask of yen
the cp-operation which is necessary for us
to go forward in making known your inter
ests, in aiding to develop the rcsourees of
-North Western Kansas, in endeavoring to
make your business profit you and your
homes pleasant; so that, when rebellion
receives its death wound and the white
winged messenger, Peace, shall come U
our borders we shall be ready to resume
our share of the business, the duties, the
privileges conferred by a great Free State.
True as preaching. Some teacher of
music once wrote that "the art of playing
"on a violin requires the nicest perception
and the most sensibility of any att in the
known world.' Upon which an experi

thought the enemy were burning their trans

Mississippi alid Purdy, McNairy county,
Tennessee. Their pickets now extend
three miles this side of the later place.
There has been some skirmishing, and our

SuggacUd'by tha Month of March.
"MAcaYfarca, Mara waa yW'ged-father,
Therefore, petuaee, you earn bofly aad blaster."
March, the third month in -tlie year;
aceordinfto on calendar,--hadc-vthe hon
or of being first in the early Roman caU
endar, and it also marked the commence
ment of the year in some of the nations
of Europe, till the eighteenth century.
The English legal year began March 25,
until the change of style in 1752. But
whether counted as the first, or as the third
month of the year, its Character for fickle
ness has ever been proverbial. With us
it is the turning point of the season a
sort af battle-ground for the elements.
Cold and heat, rain and snow, strive for the
mastery now one and now the other ob
taining temporary dominion. Ttie En
glish have tiansmitted to us a proverb to
the effect that if March comes in as mild
as a lamb, it will go out as rough as a li
on, and vice versa. The Scotch havo a
saying, when the last three days of this-
monthara stormy, that March borrows
themjot1 April, and that,
" The first it shall be wind and weot j
The next ithallbo snow and sleet;
The tldid it shall be sio a freeze,
Shall gar the birds stick to the trees."
Another proverbial slander on the
character of this month one of New
England origin undoubtedly is the accu
sation of its affording six weeks' sled
ding! And yet, after all that has been or
may be said against this month, we would
most heartily adopt changing a single
word the expression of a celebrated po
et, and say,
" Old March, with all thy faults, I loTe thee still."
Below we copy a stirring poem by Bat
aRd Taylor :
With rushing winds and gloomy skies
The dark and stubborn Winter dies;
i'ai-off, unseen, Spring faintly cries,
Bidding her earliest child arise;
By streams still held in icy snnre,
On Southern hill-sides, meliiug bare,
O'er fields that motley colors wear
That suino.i3 211s the changeful air;
What though conflicting seasons make
Ihy dayb their field, tney hoo or shake
Qhe sleeping lids of Lite &v ike,
And Hope id stronger for iby sake,
Then fror thy mouutains,ribbed -with snow
Oaco more thy rousing bugle blow,
And East nnd West, snd to and fio,
Pioclaini thy comming io the foe;
Say to the picket, chilled and numb,
f?ay'to the camp's impatient hum,
Say to the trumpet aud the drum,
Lilt up your hearts, I corns, I coue !
Cry to the waiting hosts tint Stray
On sandy'sea-sldei Far away,
By marshy isle aad gleaming bay,
Y here Southern Match is Northern May;
Announce thyself with welcome noise,
Where Glory's Ti'ctor-eagtesrpoise

A New York Democratic papor states
that Kansas has forbidden the immigration
of Blacks. The truth is just the reverse of
this. Democracy tried hard to make Kan
sas a -Slave State, and so fill it with negroes.
Baffled in this effort, Democracy turned a
short corner and insisted that, since negroes
could not come in as slaves, ihey
should not come at all ! The Republicans,
however, had a majority, and voted down
that inhumanity. And a good many thou
sands of negroes wha a few months since
were slaves of Rebels in Missouri are new
freemen in Kansas.

We are glad to see attontion turned to its
production in the free States. Illinois pro

and is undoubtedly capable of securing
quadruple the amount it has already made.
Kansas also has not been backward in this
matter; but we hops to see a belter quali

make his own sweetening.

Chicago Tribune says: " Next to the cotton
