Krced for a lime from worldly coro and thought,
I'll murk for you the changes lime ha wrought;
Then from ourselves we'll cast a look abroad.
And mark the. step in whieh the nation trod.
A beacon bright unto ail other land,
Tli homeol freedom, still our country stand,
Where poor, down-trodden man may turn to find
The boon ol freedom dear to all uionkind.
Peace reign w ill in our border, and abroad
Blessed with the smi'es alike l man and God
Prosperity is our honor and famo
Are ever linked with our dear country's name;
And though at lime the rising teniHM great
Had w ell niiih whelmed our noble ship of state
'Jtiough nil seemed dark, and ieclings of unrest
AruMread forebodings tilled the patriots breast
Through all, our noble Fillmore ever atood,
Calmly directing for the people' good;
And, w ith a judgment cer clear and just,
Restoring pence and scattering dork mistrust;
In though: nor deed detracting from her lame,

All honor be unto him freedom's son
His was a struggle nobly it wo won.

A mnn who never ha, by deed or word,
Toiled for his country's good! Who cannot boast
One act where patriotism inspir'd him mt!
Whose lite, as lar nsuolile nciions rank,

Tis strange that uch a man, wboee life hath not
One noble act, ihotild be preferred to S:ott,
The gallant hero, whose whole life hath shown
Devotion lo his country's good alone!
Alas! alas, 'tis thus we often (ind

Then mourn lor all their lollies when too late!
To Kuropc let us turn a moment now,
Afid mnrk the changes written on her brow.
Rumors of Win, commotion, noise and strife,
Alternately have marked the history of her life.
In helpless slavery poor Hungary lies,
Raising to Heaven bat weary, longing eye
Calling on Justice to avenge her oi lier foca.
And give her freedom from her many woe!
Home still lies dormant, anil degraded Spain,
tlonging wish ior Irccdom teeuM to gain,

A year ngo her people, glud and It a,
Hang out the joyous peal ol Liberty;
Freed fltja oppression, no more slaves but men,
The penling shouts nrose from every glen.
A year hat passed and lo! her banner wave
O'er a OfoWPs 1 monarch, and a people tie,
'Tls strange that freemen should thus tamely lsw;
That they who wtretO Iree should bn in bondage now!
Though talking loud of Ircedom all the while
O'erniaiched in scheming by one mnn of guilu.
Alas! that uny nation once so fno
Should to a traitor Frenchman bow the knee!

The Brake ard Tilt Crocodile. The
following thrilling account of an engagement
between a hot constrictor and a crocodile in
lavn, ia given by an eye witness:
It was one morning that I stood betide a
sin ill lake, fed by one of the rill from the
mountains. The waters were clear as crys
tal, and everything could be teen to the very
bottom. Stretrinjr its limbs close over this
pond, was a rrigantic teak tree, and in ita
thick, shining evergreen leaves, lay a huge
boa, in an easy coil, taking its morning nap.
Above him was a powerful ape of the ba
boon species, a leering race of acamps, al
ways bent on mischief.
Now the ape, from hia position, taw a
crocodile in the water, rising to the top, ex
actly beneath the coil of the serpent. Quick
hs thoug-lit he jumped plump upon the
snake, which fell with a splash into the
jaws of the crocodile. The ape aaved him
self by clinging to a limb of the tree, but a
battle royal immediately commenced in the
water. The serpent grasped in the middle
by the crocodile, made the water boil by his
furious contortions. Winding his fold round
the body of his antagonist, ho disabled his
two hinder legs, and, by his contractions,
the water was speedily tinged with the
blood of both combutuntd, yet neither was
disposed to yield. They rolled over and over,
neither being able to obtain a decided ad
vantage. All this time the cause of mischief
was in a state of tlic highest ecstacy. He
leaped up and down the branches of the
tree, came several times close to the scene
of the fight, shook the limbs of the tree, ut
tered n yell, and frisked about. At the end
often minutes a silence began to come over
the scene. The folds of the serpent begun
to be reluxed, arid though they were tremb
ling along the buck, the head hung lifeless
in the water.
The crocodile also was still, and though
only the spines of hit back were visible, it
was evident that he, too, wus dead. The
monkey now perched himself on the lower
limbs of the tree, clo.e to the dead bodies,
anil amused himself lor ten minutes in ma
king all sorts of faces at them. This seem
ed to be adding insult to injury. One of
my companions was standing nt a short dis
tance, und taking a stone from the edge of
tho luke, hurled it ut tho ope. He was to
tally unprepared, and as it struck him on
the side nf the head, he was instantly tip
ped over, and fell upon the crocodile. A few
hounds, however, hrouglitj him ashore, und
taking to the tree, he speedily disappeared
among the thick branch-..

The Engineer! and Contractor! on the
Marietta 6t Cincinnati road are preparing to
push the work with vigor hitherto unexam

Capt. Kennedy, the Chief Engineer ol the
Company, Capt. Arms, President Engineer
of the division west from Marietta to the
Vinton Co. Coal Sfrnes, and the contractors
on that division, Messrs. French, Podge
& Co., arrived here on Tuesday, and will
immediately put a 8trong force upon the line
west from this place. The work has commenced
nt the rock cut where the road leaves the
Ohio river two miles west of Harmar, and
the contractors ndvertise for one thousand
more latiorers now, ond an additional two
thousand in the spring. They design to put
a force at work on the tunnel near Esq.
Bridges', in Warren to-day. They already
have u large force at work nt Pilcher'a, in
Athens County, and intend to commence
work at every point westward where there
are deep cuts, heavy fills, or tunnels, this
winter, and early in the spring will put as
heavy a force as can be worked to advantage
on the whole line.

The N. Y. Tribune exposes a scheme of
the New York Custom House officers, past
ami present, to lino their pockets with over
half a million of plunder, and calls upon Con
gress to stop the enormous leak in the Treas
ury while yet there is time. The Tribune
refers members to tho Treasury Department
for official evidence, and says;
About the time of Gen. Harrison's inaugura
tion, or in the first months of the ensuing
Whig Congress, an actor provision of law
passed reducing und limiting the compensa
tion of certain Revenue Officers holding what
were called -lee' situations. Under this clause
the Weighers und Measurers in our Custom
Hotise, who hud previou received from ftf,
000 to $3,000 each per annum, were limited
to $1,500 each, per annum; and rney have
accordingly been paid m jirJh rate for the last
ten or more yeart. tf
It hat recently been suggested that thja pro
vition of law can aomehow beaet9rTtle or

dertaken to procure auch action in the tever

tent of tome $760,000 to $1,000,000. The
lobby agentt engtged are to hive twenty-five
per cent, for their powerful services, (but
that won't help the Treaaury a red cent,)

much oblige an old subscriber:
I have never seen a zealous professed abo
litioniat who wat not an intolerable bigot.
Having such supreme regard for the slave,
they have nothing but wormwood for all who
differ with them in any degTee.
I have never seen a free trader, who did not
think that the Government should protect this
I never seen a third party in politica which
was not ready to sell out to the highest bid
der. I have never seen a politician who was
perpetually pleading conscience, who was not
an impracticable dunce, or an arch intriguer.
I have never Been one who condemned ex
pediency in a II cases, that would not adopt
any expedient to promote his own ends.
I have never seen a public man who pro
fessed great love for the people who would
not betruy their interests when occasion
I have never seen a politician who left his
own party for the sake of promotion, who waa
not despised by all parties.
I have never seen a man who labored to
form a new party who did not expect to be
placed at its head.
I have never seen a democrat who was
perpetually crying out arristocracy, who was
not himself a perfect aristocrat in the circle
in which he moved.
I have never seen a clergyman who preach
ed politics on the Sabbath, who promoted his
own interest, the peace of the parish, or the
success of the party he attempted to sustain.
I will not say that these things never did
occur; but I -,iust say that I have never seen
them, and if they did happen along very often,
I think I should have met with them now and

How to use a Coal Stove. The fire should
not be permitted to dio out during the winter.
By kt eping the fire up, on immensity of trouble
is saved, and, paradoxical as it may seem, it
is cheaper. The reason is this: The coal
burnt out during the long winter nights, be
cause the door of the stove is shut; jjhereas,
if the door is left open, it will not bur out, Si
will be perfectly alive in the morning, Less
: coal is therefore consumed. There isjio dan
Iger in leaving the door often, aa the draft isa
! alwaya strong enough to carry the sparks,up
i the pipe or chimney. If any one sleeps in
the r loin, the upper sash ol the window should
be lowered two or three inches, even in the
coldest weather, and more when it it milder.
Having a comfortable fire in the room in cold
weather, and yet enjoying fresh air by means
of ventalat ion, is the very ideal of comfort Si
the habit of early rising. Shake down the
ashes, therefore, on retiring, fill up the stove
with coal and leave the door open, if you wish
to save yoirself or servant a deal of trouble
in the morning, und tit the same ttnf econo-'
mizc coal. But by all means open the win
dow, if it is only the width of un inch. Chi

she was dipping her pail, she saw something

with a piece of paper stuck in the centre,
was Boating upon the water, which, nodoubt,
suiling from the reach of the child, cuused
him to stretch for it, lose his balance, and
be drowned. Before sunset she was mad

her daily custom to watch that water for a

Correspondence of Daily Pittsburgh Gazette
WASHINGTON, DEC. 28.
News from Concord—Sundries.
The telegraph reports that the mitsion of
Senator Hunter to Concord has already borne
fruit. But the report that a Cabinet already
has been formed, is evidently premature. I
think care .vill be taken to have all Bect'ons
of the country represented in the arrange
ment abou to be made. Probably Dr. Gwinn
as identified with the feelings and interests of
the Pacific division, will be invited to take
charge of one of the departments. His ex
perience in naval affairs would fit him well for
Secretary of the Navy. A. O. P. Nicholson,
of Tennessee, who is named for the War De
partment, is the old correapondent of General
Cass on the Wilmot Proviso and kindred top
ice. He has heretofore remained in a pro
found obscurity, which haa perhaps precluded
the development of talents onlyjust revealed.
Mr. Dobbin, of N. C, who is spoken of for
a place in the Cabinet under Mr. Hunter's
programme, ia not much more advanced in the
paths of fame. He has been in Congress, &
more lately was the unsuccessful caucus demo
cratic candidate for Senator in North Caroli
na, but was defeated by the defection of a few
of the brethren. The same reports assign
ex-Senator Dickinson, of New York, to the
Treasury Department. Well, there is much
probability in that. I learn that the Free
Soilers and Hunkers have united against
Mtircy, who will consequently be immolated
upon the alter of faction and jealousy.
But what will be the lot and porthn of the
Warwick of Cabinets himself! Will Mr,
Hunter be Secretary of State, or will he be
the colleague of the President, wielding the
power of the Senate! That is the question.
Douglass, Heuston, Lane, and all aspirants tc
the Presidency, old or new, rather desire hi.r
to take office. If he does not, they will make
his place in the Senate, as the leader of the
Administration forces, uncomfortable. I in
cline to think that Hunter will become Sec
retary of Stute.

Louis Napoleon's Inaugural.
We intended to present the following in
augural of the newly elected and proclaimet
Emperor of the French iu our last, bu
it was crowded out.
Gertlemer, The new reign which yot
I this day inaugurate has not its orgio, as tc
many others which history records, in vio
lence, conquest, or intrigue: it is, aa you have
just declared, the legal result of the will ol
an entire people, what it had founded in the
midst of agitation.
I am deeply grateful to the nation which
three limes iu four years has supported me
by ita suffrage, and which each tjne has
augmented its majority in order to mcreaae
iny'power. But the more thia power gains
in extent and in vital force, the more need
it haa of enlightened men like those whom
I uddress, to guide me by their counsels, and
to reduce my authority within just limits,
if it shuuld ever transgress them.
From this day I take with the crown tho
name of Napoleon III, because the opinion
of the people has already bestowed it on me
in their acclamations, because the Senate
has legally proposed it, and because the
whole nation hat rttified it.
Does this, however, signify that in taking
this title I fall into the error imputed to the
prince who, returning from exile, declared
all that had been done in hit abaence null
So erroneoua a notion ia far from n,e.
Not only do recogniae the governments
which have preceded me but I inherit in
some sort what they have accomplished of
good and evil; tor successive Governments,
notwithstanding their different orgin, are
severally bound by the acts of their prede
cessors. Rut the more I accept that which, for the
last 50 years, history hands down to ut with
inflexible authority, the less was it allowed
me to pass over in silence the glorious reign
af the chief of my family, and the titile,
regular, although ephemeral, of hia ton,
which the Chambers proclaimed with t'.e
last outburst of conquered patriotiain.
Thus, then, tho title of Napoleon III is
lot one of those dynastic and obsolete pre
:entiont which seem an insult alike to truth
ind common tente; it it the homage paid toa
OYtrMMBt which wat legitimate, and to
which we are Indebted for the finest ptgea
of our modern history. My reign doet not
date from 1815, it datet from the very inttant
that you have communicated to me the tuf
fragrs of the nation.
Receive, then, Maeeieura leat Deputes,
my acknowledgement! for the dittinetion
you have given to the manifestation of the
national will, rendering it more apparent by
your supervision, and more imposing by your
I thank you, also, Mctsieurt le Senatura
for having been the first to congratulate me
as you were alto the firtt to express the
national wish. .
Atsitl me all of you, to establish in thia
land, harratsed by to many revolution!, a
stable Government, based on religion, justice
probity, and the love of the humbler
And here receive the oath, that I will ute
every exertion to aasure the prosperity of thia
country; and that whilst maintaining peace,
I will yield nothing which affects the honor
and dignity of France.
