"I love to live," said a prattling boy,
As hegaily played withhis new bought toy
And a merry laugh went echoing forth
From a bosom filled with joyous mirth.
"I love to live," said a stripling bold—
"I will seek for fame- I will toil for gold."
And he formed at his pleasure many a plan
To be carriedout when he grew a man.
"I love to live," said a lover true,
'Oh, gentle maid I would liveforyou
11
have labored ^*earoa of time—
I have found it but an empty name."
"I love to live," said a happy sire,
As his children neared the winter fire
For his heart was cheered to see theirjoy,
and he almost wished himself a boy.
"Hove to live," said an aged man
Whose hour of life was well nigh ran—
Think you such words from him were mild,
The old man was again a child.
And ever'thus in [this fallen world
Isthe banner of hope to the breeze unfurled
And only with hope oflife on high,
Can a mortal ever love to die.
I LIVE TO LOVE*
•'I live to love," said a laughing girl,
As she playfully tossed each flaxen curl
And as she climbed on her loving father's
knee,
And snatched a kiss in her innocent glee.
"I live to love," said a maiden fair,
As she twined a wreath of her sister's hair
They were bound by cords of love together
And death alone could these sisters sever.
I live to love," said a gay young bride
Her loved one standing by her side,
Her life told again what her lips hudspoken,
And never was the link of affection broken.
"I live to love," said a mother kind—
"I would live a guide to the infant mind,"
Her precepts and example given,
Guided her children home to heaven.
"Ishallivc to love," said a fading form,
And her eye was bright and her cheek was
warm
As she thought of the blessed world on high,
She would live to love and never die.
And ever thus in this lower world,
Should the banner of love be wide unfurled,
An we.meeJUn the world aho\e,
Ma we love to live and live to love.

The following is an extract from a
letter from a Gentleman late of this)
City, dated at Kansas City, Missouri,
Nov. -20, 1S57:
monetary affairs and business derange
ments in tho East. This town has an
overland trade with Texas, Chihuahua,
California, Sonora, Utah, and New
Mexico. Its whole trade this year
has amounted to over two millions of
dollars. Next year it will propablv
exceed three millions, or even five "if
the Mormon war shall continue.
I have been all through Kansas Ter
ritory and have studied its resources.
It is a country of many attractions in
soil climate, productions, beauty of
landscape and in its inhabitants. Dem
agogues have made great trouble and
strife. Much blood has been shed in
in partisan warfare and in private quar

dered in the political contests. The
record of these incidents will make a

went the claw-hammer coat, an he

he fotch his shut over his hed faster nur

hit up in the air like he didn't care a

lodged onto a black jack. I seed one
ove my lizards a ra'ein about over the
big dirty lookin shut, skarcd like the
devil. Then he gin a sorter shake an
a twist, and he come outen..his.britc}ies
an he tuk him by the bottom ove the
legs an swuug 'em roun' his hed a few
times an then fotch 'em down cheral

fans dared the way, an he hed a pur
fcctly far track tu the, woods. He
weighed nigh onto three hundred hed
a black stripe down his back like onto
an old bridil rein, an his belly looked
about the size and culler ove a big beef
paunch, an hit a shakin from side tu
