On the Ocnth of two Children burnt lun
House while their Parents were
at a Public Brill.
BY DIANA BACHELOR.
Oh, sad and mournful is the fato,
Which, I intend now to relate
Two dearyoung souls in health and bloom
At onco were hurled into the tomb.
One winter's night, both cold nnd drear
With nought around their hearts to cheer
Four childron, they were left alone,
Lone inmates of a dreary home.
This man and wife, wo understand,
Contrary to God's great command
Did leave their house and children all,
For to attend a public ball.
This woman when she did get riled,
Would in her arms take up her child
Unto her neighbor's house would go,
And leave them alone to weal or woo.
Night of the ball, as we havo said,
tho childron they were att in bed.
Thofirebroko out at twelve that night,
Which put them in a dreadful hight.
Poor little souls, they could not sec,
Which way to run or where to flco,
Nor father, mother, friend was near,
In this sad hour their heart to cheer.
The flames around the room did glaro,
Grim death, into each faco did stare
Out of the firo tho two oldest came,
The other two were wrapped in flamo.
Most sadly burned and almost froze,
Their naked bodies were exposed
Their poor bare feet, in frost and snow,
Unto their uncle's house did go.
Oh, uncle and aunt open your door
Oh, let'us in, we pity implore
Oh uncle dear our house is in flame,
Franklin and Fdncy arc in the same.
Their friends turn'd out with might and main
And soon tho burning house did gain.
The little ones they could not save,
For both, were wrapped in a fiery grave.
What awful feelings in them burned,
When, away, anto the ball they turned
To bear the sad and mournful ncws,[bruise.
Which ought their stubborn hearts to
As on the wings of wind they went,
To bear tho sad news was thoir intent,
And tell to them tho awful talc,
And hear them mourn, lament and wail.
'-Our homo is gone, Sallie, he said
"Wc have not where to lay our head
And oh! our little children too.
Oh, dear! Oh, dear! what shall we do?"
Of those two children that did come,
Unto their Uncle's friendly homo
They dressed thoir wounds and made them
As the good Samaritan did of old.
Thcpo lines aro hard and also true
Whoever does these verses view
Takoasa warning one and all,-"^'
Never go to public ball.
SlilAR'iNESS O I I E I N E O
A correspondent of tho Stato Sen
Unci relates tho following:
It seeing from the Republican press
that the younger Lincoln has not either
more politeness or good breeding than
the elder Lincoln. Take a specimen
'•brick" from the Republican paper of
Buffalo. The editor, with great glee,
publishes that while "Bob" and his
mother was traveling from New York
home, they found themselves at Buff
alo, without a free pass over the State
Line Railroad. Whereupon the smart
and polite young gentlemen walked
into tho Superintendent's room, and
held forth in the following choice and
"My name is Bob Lincoln I am son
of Old Abe—the eld woman is in the
cars raising h—1 about her passes—I
wish you would go and attend to
The editor publishes this ss a con
clusive evidence of Bob's smartness
Strange to say, the Snperintedcui
instead of kicking the impudent young
out of his ofiice, filled out thewas
requisite papers to enable Mrs. Lincoln
ami family to ride over the road free.
Wc ought to have Thackeray in thi
oountry for tho benefit of the "snobs"
that infest it at this time. The most
silly and ridiculous things that human
lips, inside or outside of a Lunatic
Asylum, can possibly utter, if uttered
by Old Abe or his hopeful eon Bui
arc caught up and published to theelegant
world by the Republican "snobs" as
evidence of their smartness.

A PORTRAIT OP AAUOX BURR.—
The New York correspondent of the

half an hour, at the rooms of Messrs.
Williams & Stcdman, to tho study
of Wondcrlyn's portrait of Bnrr. He
thus writes of it:
To one who knows Burr's character,
the portrait is absolutely astounding.
Indeed, though I heard it was there,
and went to see it, I walked past it
twice, looking straight at iL and then
directed to it by a clerk. Imagine

dark eyebrows, eyes of a dark liquid

the state of penury to which the last
but one of tlio Clanaboy branch of

Tho Charleston correspondent of
the New York Tinn/s writes on theroll
I have just returned from a visit to
the famous floating battery or raft,
which is now entirely completed, and
will be launched at the first favorable
tide. There have been so many crricTe
ideas concerning that novel weapon,
and such ridiculous ideas concerning
its real ©bject,that a genuine afld post
live statement of its positive powers
and purposes will, of course, bo inter
esting. It may be relied upon, as I
had it direct from a leading person
employed in the Construction of the
new military leviathan.
Your readers will please imagine a
huge box, forty-six by eighty feet,
pierced for a sufficient number of
rifled cannon, and a root covered with
3 thick plates of the best sheet iron,
and rendered perfectly bomb-proof.

LAKH or FlitE.
A correspondent of tho Alta Call
gives the following incidents of
a visit to the volcano Kilanea, in tho1812,
Islands, thirty-six miles
from Hilo. After saying that the
crater of this volcano is in a vast pit.
in the midst of an immense plain, hav
ing only a gradual rise to the center—
and that within a quarter of a mile is
the entrance to a great cave, which he
and his guide cxplorcd-he says:
"Suddenly wo camo to a high bank,
and looking down wo beheld the lake
of firo bo-uejjth us about sevent-five
feet. This lake is sorflctlrrng 'more
than a mile in circumference. There,
full view, were real waves of liquid
fire, of a bright red color, sputtering
and splashing like ocean waves! A
little island of hard lava stands in the
middle of tho hike, against the black
sides of which the waves of fire dashed
with tremendous fury, and breaking
on its jagged cliffs, they would cast
their red spray high into the rir. The
sides of this lake are solid walls of red
fire, glowing with fearful intensity.
We were standing on the windward
bank, with a strong cold wind blowing
down, yet tlio heat was so intense that
we could only look for a moment at a
time, then turn away to catch the re
freshing influence of .the cool breeze.
In addition to tho roaring and hissing
of the lake, we heard at short intervals,
sounds much resembling that of a
steamer blowing off steam, only infin
itely louder, an ominous glowing of
pentriplorcos struggling in subterra
nean caverns, at which the earth
seemed to tremble. Occasionally,
large masses of the cooled lava on the
edge of the lake became detached, and
falling into tho boiling cauldron, were
instantly reduced to a liquid slate.
"After a few minutes' silcneo, dis
turbed only by an occasional hissing
and muttering, I was startled by that
awe-inspiring sound of esoaping "steam.
Tn an instant a faint glimmering of red,
like a sheet of lightning, shot out over
the overhanging brink where I was
standing, and ran ^across the lake.—
This was a signal for a chango in the
programme. Immediately the whole
lake became pf a bright red polor,and
fountains sprang up in different parts
ot the lake,
"-My eyes followed these with amaze,
ment, as one after another they cast np
great quantities of pure vermilliou
colored liquid. These were followed
by two others in rapid succession, one
of which burst up hoar whoro I was
standing. Running back, I

tion. These six fountains threw up
jets from thirty to fifty feet high. The
fountain, from the spray of which I so
hastily retreated, made a large depos
it of molten lava on tho bank where I
was standing, and when it ceased I
procured some very good specimens.
A short space of inactivity ensued, and
then the waves of fire commenced to
and dash against the little island,
as we at first saw them. Native tra
dition says that this crater has been
burning from from time immemorial.
The most wonderful and mysterious
phenomena we witnessed was on the
second day of our visit to the craterr.
Iff .was noon and wc were sitting on
wind, to avoid tho intense heat of the
lake. I was startled by a noise like
the rushing together of vast bodies of
water. The natives jumped up in
stantly and raised an unearthly shout,
scampering in an opposite direction.
Turning toward the lake, I beheld a
seeac which I never,shall forget. I,
too, had to run off some distance
to escape tlio great heat. Tho whole
surface of tho lake was in a stato of
tho wildest commotion. Wave
clashed on wave, and all was confusion
Tremendous billows of fire rolled
from every side of the lake to thesuspon*lett,
center, and meeting in fierce conflict
arcyind tho island tb tho centre, broke
with fury over its black sides. Then
after receding again they rushed to
the onset once more, with rhcteaftcd
force, and meeting together, shot up
into tho air perhaps 100\ feet—one
vast spiral body ot red liquid lava*
which finally combed over and fell in
graceful spray back into the lake
A FEMALE WARRIOR.
A widow whoso name figures hon
orably in tlio history ofFranco,rooently
died in Hospice des Petlts-Menages,
at the age ot 87. Her maiden name
was Thereso Fignenr, and she served
as a dragoon in the 15th and 19th
regiments from 1780 to 1812. She was
known throughout the army by thotaller
name of Sans Gene, and was so much
esteemed by her officers that when the
committee of public safety determined
on excluding all women from the array,
an exception was made in her favor.
The history of her campaigns was
published from her own dictation in
1842. Sho began her military career
at Toulon, when tho port was besieged
by the English, in 1703. She
there put under arrest by Command
ant Bonaparte for a delay of twenty
fivo miuutes in executing an order.—
Some years after, when her old com
mander had become first consul, he
sent for the dragoon Sans-Gcro to St.
Cloud, and afterward gave her a good
service pension of 200 francs. Sans
Gere remained in active service until
when sho fell into the hands of
the priest Merino's guerillas in Spain,
and was taken as prisoner of war
England, where sho remained until
1814. In the course of twenty cam
paigns she had four horses killed under
herj and was often wounded—the first
time being at Toulon, when a ball
struck her left breast. Sho entered
tho hospico in l8l0,and lived upon her
pension of 200 francs, till the present
Emperor made a handsome addition to
icriAoans from his private purse.
EX-SECRETAR HOl.T ON EX-SEC
E A THOMPSON.
Ex-Secretary nolt makes his appear
anco in tho National Intelligencer, in
letter commenting upon a recent
declaration of Ex-SecretaryThompson,
that ho (Thompson") had warned the
authorities of South Carolina that the
Star of the West had sailed with rein
forcements for Fort Sumter. Mr. Holt
is rather severe on Jacob. lie says
Wo have here a distinct, exultant
avowal on the part of the Hon. Secre
tary, that while yet a member of thethe
Cabinet, ho disclosed to those in open
rebellion against tho .United States, in
formation which he had derived from
his oflioi.'.l position, and which held
under the seals of a confidence that,
from the beginning of onr history as a
nation, had never boon violated. This
step not merely endangered the high
est public interests, but put in immi
nentjeopardy tho lives of two hundred
and fifty innocent men who had never
wronged tho Hon. Secretary, and who,
in proceeding to Charleston harbor,
were simply obeying the lawful com
mand of their superior officers. The
armed enemies of tho government ho
was serving, under tlio solemn sanc
tions of an oath, were,.as he declares,
thus-put upon their guard, and the
frail vessel that was bearing succor to
its friends, received a warm welcome
from booming cannon.'*
