than a merchandise of silver."

I the carpet. It does not dance gladly now,
as in youthful hours. No wonder; it too, is
dienmino-of youthful duvs.
Those days w hen it played laughingly in j
ringlets of ehining hair, aiinceu witn luirj
foot-steps on the old play-ground, or played
at ludi-Miid-seek with one little bright form.
I am silting in an arm-chair beside my
desk : an open bouk is before me, between the
25 ! 1
eaves of which l.es a boquet of pressed and
faded flowers; so like to faded hope are they.
but although the book is before, yet I am
not reading. My eyes are fixed upon vacancy,
and my heart is wandering back amid the
paths of childhood, when the flowers were
flesh and blooming, ere death came stealing
through life's bowers and left his fool-prints
there.
Oh! for that land of flowers which 1 have
left behind me, with its little joys and little
sorrows! Where can I again tind that Eden
of my bouI? And why, oh, why did my
guardian spirits drive me hence, when my
only sin was,' that I was no longer a child !
1 am at the old honirslead again, wander
ing in the woods with Blanche, pulling wild
flowers, and drinking of the little spring
stream that gushes from the rock. It is an
autumn day, a golden-veiled, suli-bieailiin
utumn day; a day of the heart; one that
childhood can remember so well. How plea
sant is the low music of the leaves as they
rustic beneath our footsteps, and how merrv
is the sound of the stream as it Hurdles and
ripples in among the fluwers, ns it' the willful
water-spmt was singing a strange melody to
itself.
The brown leaves that float in the air, dun
ciner and waltzing with the breeze in a world
of delight, w hilst the sunshine, streaming up
on tliem, brightens the mingling colors ol
crimson and brown. Blanche savs they are
wild little elves; and trulv they look like as-
many tame?, each in their dillerent dress.
charming away the day houis. .
1 lie shadows lie long and daik beneath
the elms, anil the sun makes golden bars on
the glass, and lays golden kisses upon the
glowing lips of every flower. The flowers
alas! for the beautiful flowers there are but
few of them now. .
Spring stole many of them when she left
(he earth. Some of her pel buds. Summer
chose some of her fairest and blooming ones.
when she passed away, to strew over her
grave, four, beloved Autumn coim-in in a
faded dress, a few brown leaves adorning her
dark tresses, and enrrieth the flowers that
pring and Summer left behind.
And though they are not the lovliost of
flowers, still they are childish flowers, and we
love them. Blanche and 1 aie sitting upon
the grass in the shade, weaving uariands of
crimson leaves, flowers and fern. Blanche is
my dearest friend, and I love her brown, slu
ing ringlets, "her sweet, smiling face, and
reamy blue eyes.
We are talking of my dear little sister Lulu,
lion) we had left at borne because she was
ill, and could not come with us; an J we say
she will smile and put out her little dimpled
and when we bring the wreaths we have
made for her, .......
The air whispers in the leaves, and the
owera droop because the sun is withdrawing
her kisses from them. The water-spirit mur
murs sadly, and the leaves dance more gaily,
because it is almost eveniug. Blanche savs,
Let us go home,' and we leave the beautiful
woods and walk slowly toward the homestead
we part with an embrace, and 1 steal into
my mother s room to delight Lulu with the
last flowers of the season. Sw eet sister, they
are indeed the last of earth's flowers that
ever bloomed for her.
,Oh, sisterly love! to what can it be liken
ed? No one can describe it; no tongue can
utter its true value. How holy is the ever
bubbling, overflowing love w hich resteth in
one sister's heart fur an other.
An angel hath unfolded its dark wings over
our dwelling. It is the angel of Death.
Voices spenk low ; footsteps are noiseless.
The curtuins are closed,-to shut out the glad
sunshine, w hich is no longer beautiful to the
eye. I steal from my own room to the dark
ened parlor. The little coffin is there so
dark, so terrible! I lift the white covering
from the still whiter face beneath. The blue
eyes are closed, and the silken lashes rest like
threads of gold upon that waxen cheek.
The long, fair curls are still now; no breath
disturbs their slumbers. A wreath of snowy
buds encii cle them, so like the pure soul ol
the departed one. The dimpled hands are
cold, and lie burned in the lloweis, which my
mother has placed over them. I stoop to kiss
those beautiful lips, but Death has been there
before me, and led his icy breath upon them.
I have taken my last kiss; 1 have clipped
off a tress of that beautiful hair .and creep
from the dark room alone but shed no tear!
I stop to listen if she is calling to me. No, v
is but the echo of my own footsteps. She
never will speak more. - I hasten through the
sitting room. My mother and Lulu aie not
there. My font strikes something, which falls
with a Jow, mournful sound., f t is Lulu's
little eradle, and the doll hag fallen Xrora its
bed. The tears now gush from- my eyes; !
press these childish playthings to my heart,
and hasten to my room.
There are no clouds in the sky. All is
strene, azure hue. It is day, bright, beauti
ful, heavenly dav day without, but night
within. There is a hushed and heavv stillness
lingeiing in the air, and even the trees bend
their luxurious branches, as if in devoliun.
whilst the gleaming winged sunshine hovers
over them,
A bird flies through the air, with rustling
pinions. Its plumage is snow white, and il
seems like the spirit of the loved and lost one
winging its flight to heaven.
There Is silence above, and silence below,
and my lieart is crying through the stillness
Lulu! Lulu but no 'voice nnswereth that
mournful call. Does the sunshine hear il"?
Then why does its radiance become still
beautiful? Do the' clouds bear it?
why do they linger in the sky, so Jrre, so
Jairy-like 7
morar
Is my heart dreaming? Does it dream
that Lulu is dead ? Dbes it dream that she
lies so cold and still in among the flowers be
neath the willow ? Oh, if it is a dream, then
may I slumber as she slumbers a dreamless
slumber. Shall I go down to the meadow
md sit beside the little mound and sing to
vt the song she used to lore " No, no.
The brook is singing to her an unceasing,
nurmuring song, as she lies sleeping. It tells
of-faded hope and sad rememberances. It
whispers of whithered joys, aifd the ashes
of formei love-ties which lie buried forever
there.
My fondest hopes perished when her holy
spiiit passed away. The relentless hand of
death has plucked the fairest flower from my
garden ol lite.
Oh sistsrs! beware, lest by a thoughtless
woid or action, the cherished 'silver cord be
loosened' that bindeth thy hearts together,
lest the 'golden bowl be broken that holdeth
thy love in one.
i hese childish memories have woven a
chain of sadness around my spiiit The book
has fallen from the desk, and the leaves
and flowers lie crushed upon the floor. On
brown leaf alone lies unbroken in the sun
shine. It is an emblem of myself alone and
sad, when all nrounil is bright and gay.
Is my heart dreaming again? Yes, it is
dreaming now; dreaming of that beautiful,
starry laud, where Lulu is sleeping quietly.

The First View of Jerusalem.
Bayard Taylor, in his last letter publish
ed in the New York Tribune, gives the fol
lowing account of his first impression of the
Hoiy city :
But when I climbed the last ridge, and
looked ahead with a Sort of painful suspense.
Jerusalem did not appear. We were '2,000
feet above the Alediterianean, whose blue we
could distinctly see far to the west, through
notches iu the chain of hills. To llienoilli,
the mountains were gray, desolate and awful.
Not a shrub or tree relieved their frightful
bartnness. An upland tract, covered with
white volcanie rock, lay before us. We met
peasants with asses, who looked, (to my eyes)
as ifihey had just left Jerusalem. Still for
vfiird we urged our horses, and reached a
ruined garden, sui rounded with hedge of cac
tus, over'which 1 saw domes and walls in the
distance. I drew a long breath and looked
at Francois. He was jogying along without
turning his bead; he could not have been so
indifferent if that was really the ciiy. Pre
sently we reached another slight lise in the
rocky plain. He began to urge his panting
horse, and at the same instant we both lash
ed the spirit into ours, dashed on at a break
neck gallup, round the corner of an old wall
on the top of the hill, and lo! the Holy City!
Uur lireck jerked both pistols from bis
ho'sters, and lired them into the air, us reined
up on the steep.
t rum the description of travelers, I had
expected to see in Jerusalem an ordinary
modern Turkish town ; but that before me,
with its wall, lortresses and domes, was il
not still the City of David ? I saw the Jeru
salem of the New Testament, I had ima
gined it. umg lines ot walls crowned with
a notched parapet, and strengthened by tow
ers few domes and spires above them;
clusters of cypress here and there; ihis was
all that was visible of the city. Oa either side
the soil slope down to two deep valleys over
which it hangs. On the i ast, the Mount of
O lives crowned with a chapel and mosque,
rose high and sleep, but . directly over
that ciiy, the si(rht fell far away upon the lofly
mountains of Moub. beyond the Dead ISea.
The scene was grand in its simplicity. The
prominent colors were the purple of those
distant mountains, and the hoary gray of the
nearer hills. The walls were of the dull yel
low of weather stained marble, and the only
trees the dark cypress and moonlit olive.
aince we arrived, t nave looued down upon
the city from the Mount of Olives, and up to
it from the valley of Jehosaphat; but 1 can
not restore the illusions of the first view.
We allowed our horses to walk slowly
down the remaining half mile to the Jaffa gate.
An Englishman, wilh a red silk shawl over
his head was sketching the city, while an
held an umbrella over him. Inside the gate
we stumbled upon an Italian shop wilh an
Italian sign, and after threading a number ol
intricate passages under dark archways, and
being turned off from one hotel w hich wns
full of travelers, reached another, kept by a
converted Herman Jew, w here we found Dr.
Robinson and Ely Smith, w':o both arrived
yesterday. It sounds strange to talk of a
hotel ill Jerusalem, but the world is progres-
sintr, aud there are already three.

Be it weakness, il deserves some praise to
ive the home of our early days. What fond
and tender associations does that one word
awaken in the heart. There is no place like
home: no, be it ever so humble, it is
still home. It is the scene of our child
ish sports or innocent joys; and when
we are awav, our thoughts wander back to
childhood's sunny hours, and to the home of
our early youth, where we were blest with
the kind advice of a rather, and tue gentle
and southing words of a Mother. We may
unkind words and looks given us; the
passing ut ,,ur days may be painful; our
paths, may be joujed vvith sorrow and care,
yet when the metnry hoVers ovt,r ,), pHStj
there is no place upon vull it (,.ij,;,ls to
linger, as the loved scenes ot childhood.
Why rests so deep a shade of a.inoss on
the brow of that lovely girl.- She isau r.
phan. olie, too, had a home, but that home
is now forsaken : some of that circle are now
sleeping in the cold ami silent tomb. Thus
it is we are deprived of the friends we most
love and cherish. If it is so pleasant to have
a home here on earth, how much more delight
ful it will be to have a home in Heaven.
Some people think they would rather be at
any place else lnn at home. But 1 ima
gine a trial of sepetation would lead thm
lo think differently, foryhere we are always
sure of a welcome fram kind friends. I
have often heard il said that the three most
beautiful words iu the English language are
Mother, Home and Ueaven. A home would
not bejjme without a mother, and who does
notrig fur ft home in Heaven.
Theodore Hook says of railroads and steam
boats "They annhiiate space and time, not
to mention a multitude of passengers.
Increased average duration of Life.
Professor Buchanan, in an interesting lect
ura before the Mechanics' Institute of Cin
cinnati, makes the following observations upon
the average duration of life, the effect in part
of the medical sciejjee. He says that in the
early part of the Sixteenth century, one-half
of all that were born, died under five years
of age and the average longevity of the whole
population was but eighteen years. In the
seventeenth cenlnry one-halfof the population
died under twelve. But in the first sixty
years of the eighteenth century, one-half of
the population lived over twenty-seven years.
In the latter forty years, one-half exceeded
thiriy-two years of age. At the beginning of ,
the present century one-half exceeded forty
three. The average longevity of these suc
cessive periods has been increased from 18
years in the sixteenth century up to 43.7 by
our last reports. Tliese facts are derived from
he medical statistics of Geneva. Applied to
this country, such an improvement as is here
exhibited from 150 J to 184o, would make a
variation in our bills of mortality of more than
one-half a million, or 1,500 deaths daily.
Politkess I ?r Dusking An old gentle
man had owed a firm for years; at last,
after everybody's patience and temper were
exhausted, a clerk named Frank undertook to
get the money.
Frank called upon the gentleman, and met
with a polite reception, and the usual answer.
with the addition, "You need not troubie
yourself, young man, about the matter; I will
make it all right ."
O, no," replied t rank, I could not think
for a moment of compelling foil to call at the
store for a few dollars. It will not be the
slightest inconvenience for me to stop in, as I
pass vour place of business six times a dav. to
j and from my meals, and I can call every
time I go by.
"Here," said the old fellow to his book-
Uteeper, alarmed at the ' prospect of being
dunned six times a day for .the next six
months "pay this impertinent rascal. He
can beat me in politness, and if he wants a
situation, I will give him two thousand dol
lars a year." '
A gentleman was railing,a few days since, at a
public table, against I he law of Massachusetts,
as depriving men-of their natural right lo buy
and sell, and get ,;nin; and turning to his
neighbor asked him if he did not think it high
handed oppression. The gentleman replied :
"Sir, call it oppression, if you please. I will
slato one fact well known to myself. A tax
bill was recently brought to me on my city
property, of $800, for which I gave my check.
I carefully looked into the subject, and found
that $650 of it was for the support of drunk-
entless. iow, wnal is tnis out
opprej-sion
But I suppose I have no rights. Rumselh-rs
have all. They "nay tax me to Btipport crim
inals and drunkards they make, f(550, and I
must be still." "Sir," said the gentleman,
"Massachusetts is right It is the hest argu
ment I ever beard. It has overthrown all
my theory about free Uade. I will say
no more, but go the whole witlyou."
Dayton and Michioan Railroad. We
learn that eleven miles of this road from Day
ton north. are completed, and the track is being
laid at the rate of a half mile a rlaj. It is ex
pected with .nnch certainty tWat the work will
be carried to Troy by the first day of the
new year, when the cars will at once com
mence running to that point, under a:i ar
rangement with the Cincinati, Hamilton and
Davtnn company.

ZSfThere is a difference among Democrats
some will tell the truth after the election.
Thus Senator Benton, in speaking of the ex
pentiture of sixty millions by the Whig Ad
ministration, says.
Let me do justice. Party warfare throws
the blame of these sixty millions on the pre
sent Whig Administration. Inexorable his
tory will have to qualify that reproach, and
to tell that Democratic mijorilies were in both
houses of Congress when lhat nppaling sum
was voted! And further, that it would have
been seventy instead of sixty millions, if the
"lower" House (as it is called) ha l s tnetion-
ed all the appropriations voted in the upper."
E3rSince "Cabinet" making is llie order
of the day, we submit the followiug;
Secretary of State Major Jack Downing,
of Maine.
Secretary of Treasury Parson Brownlow
of lennessee.
Secretary of Navy Mrs. Partington, of
the Boston Post.

By an arrival at Baltimore on the 10th ad
vices have been received from Buenos Ayres

his forces and disclaimed all further intention
toward Buenos Ayres. He says he will defend
his province from all aggression, however.
In a circular to the foreign Consuls, he noti

intention, as dictator, to install a sovereign

Slate Agricttltral Society Close of
tlie Convention. - j
The State Society closed it annual Con-1
vention in this city, on Wednesday evening.
We have given a tolerably full and accurate
report of its proceedings. The new members
of the Board, so far as we know, and hear are
of energy, experience and character; and we
have the utmost confidence that the affairs of
the association will be managed with skill and
discretion. The past year has been of great
prosperity to the Society. The Cleveland
Fair was eminently succesful in ever depart
ment, and especially so in a financial view.
We learn that from eight to ten thousand dol
lars are in the Treasury, beside certain as
sets of some value. This is very encourag
ing, and will stimulate to increased efforts to
promote the great cause of Agriculture in
Ohio.
The citizens of Dayton are moving to se
cure the next State Fair at that place. The
delegate from Montgomery country pledged
the $3,000 on the part of the people, and, from
the spirit and liberality that characterize them
in all their enterprises, we have nodoubt
the pledge will be promptly redeemed, and
the next annual State Fair will be held in
that flourishing city. -
X he deliberations of the Convention were
harmonioustftnd in the right spirit. Some im
portant resolution were proposed, which we
hall take' occassion to refer to hereafter
Altogether, this Anuual Session was a very
propitious ire, id demonstrates that
the great interest of Agriculture have an abi
ding place in the thought and regards of the
people of this first agricultural State of the
Union. Ohio State Journal.

JE3" Two young men fought a bloody duel
at midnight, in a wood near Camden, N. J.,
a few days since, in which one fell. Serious
apprehensions as to his safety were removed
the next day when the seconds made known
that the pistols were loaded with powder only.
JT Mr. Phillip Morr'l states in the Ban
gor (Me.) Whig, that a disease, supposed lo
he allied to that which has infected the potato
crop, has attacked the thistle and mullen,
both pests to the farmer, to such an extent
as to annihilate them in portions of that state.
So far as he has observed, none bare es
caped this year.
