Mr Charles Branscomb, late of Chicopee,

grant party to Kansas from New England,
retl,rned.to this city yesterdav, bringing very

from the slave States, who do not carry

to holders themselves begin to give up that the
State must be free. One slaveholder in
Franklin, Mo., explored the. country, and
having selected a claim, near where the New

Missouri and removed his effects, including
four slaves, on to the location. On his ar

The London correspondent of the Spirit

lliirh hopes that burn'd like stars sublime,
( Jo down i' the heavens of freedom ;
And true hearts perish in the time
Are bitterliest need 'em I
But never sit we down and say,
There's nothing left but sorrow :
AVe walk the wilderness to-day,
The promised land to-morrow.
Our birds of song are silent now,
There are no flowers blooming !
Yet life bears in the frozen bough.
And freedom's spring is coming !
And freedom's tide come up alway.
Though we may strand in sorrow :
And our good bark aground to-day,
Shall float again to-morrow.
Through all the long, dark night of years
The people's cry aseendetb,
And earth is wet with blood and tears ;
But our meek sufferance endeth !
The few shall not forever sway,
The many moll in sorrow :
The powers of hell are strong to-day.
But Christ shall rise to-morrow.
Though hearts brood o'er the past, our eye
"With smiles of future glisten!
For, lo ! our day bursts up the skies :
Lean out your souls and listen I
The world rolls freedom's radiant way.
And ripen's with her sorrow :
Keep heart ! who bears the cross to-day.
Shall wear the crown to-morrow.
O, youth ! flame earnest, still aspire.
With energies immortal !
To many a heaven of desire
Our yearning opes a portal !
And though age wearies by the way.
And hearts break in the furrow,
We'll sow the golden grain to-day
The harvest comes to-morrow.
Build up heroic lives, and all
Be like a slieathen sabre.
Ready to flash out at God's call,
O, chivalry of labor !
Triumph and toil are twins : and aye
Joy suns the cloud of sorrow ;
And 'tis the martyrdom to-day.
Brings victory to-morrow.
Whatever branch of business may be suf
fering this driest of seasons, the freighting
business on the railroads is as flush as the
hungriest stockholder could desire. The
freight store houses of the Little Miami
Company are inadequate to the immense
pressure, and during the last week, the west
end of the company's new passenger depot
has been filled with bales and boxes, which
there was no room for elsewhere. On Wed
nesday, Thursday and Friday there must
have been some hundred tons of freight each
day, stored in the spacious passenger house,
12.jmostly dry goods shipped from Philadelphia
American world in a cheap form, that every one j
may read him."

Facts about Friday. From time imme
morial, Friday has been frowned upon as a
day of ill omen, and though thi9 prejudice
is less prevalent now than it was of yore,
when superstition had general sway, yet
there are many, even in this matter of fact
age of ours, who would hesitate on a day as
inauspicious, to begin an undertaking of
momentous importance. And how many
brave mariners, whose hearts unqailed could
meet the wildest furv of their ocean home,
would blanch to even bend their sail3 on
Friday. But to show with how much rea-
json this feeling is indulged, let us examine
the following important acts in connection
with our settlement and greatness as a na
tion, and we will see . how great cause we
'.Americans have to dread the fatal day:
On Friday, August 3d, 1492, Christopher
Columbus sailed on his great voyage of dis-
covery. On Friday, October 12th, 1492, he
first discovered land. On Friday, January
4th, 1493, he sailed on his return to Spain,
which, if he had not reached in safety, the.
happy result would never have been known
which led to the settlement of this vast con
tinent. On Friday, March 15th, 1493, he
arrived in Palos in safety. On Friday, No
vember 22d, 1493, he arrived in Hispaniola,
on his second vovage to America. On Fri
day, June l5th, 1496, he, though unknown
to himself, discovered the continent of
On Friday, March 5th, 1496, Henry VII.,
of England, gave to John Cabot his commis
sion, which led to the discovery of North
America. On Fnaay, Sept. 17th, 15b5, Me
! lendez founded St. Augustine, the oldest set
Itlement in the United States by more than
forty years. On Friday, Nov. 10th, 1620,
the Mayflower, with the pilgrims, made the
harbor of Provincetown. On the same day
was signed that august compact, the fore
runner of our present glorious constitution.
On Friday, December 22d, 1620, the pilgrims
made their final landing on Plymouth Rock.
On Friday, June 16th, 1775, Bunker Hill
was seized and fortified. On Friday, Octo
ber 7th, 1777, the surrender of Saratoga was
made, which had such power and influence
in inducing France to declare for our cause.
On Friday, Sept. 22d, 1780, the treason of
Arnold was laid bare, which saved us from
On Friday, Oct. 19th. 1781, the surrender
of Yorktown, the crowning glory of the
American arms, took place. On Friday,
June 7th, 17Y6, the motion in congress, made
by John Adams, seconded by Richard Henry
Lee, that the United Colonies were and of
right ought to be free and independent.
Thus, by numerous examples, we see that
however it may be with the other nations,
Americans need never dread to begin on Fri
day any undertaking, no matter how mo
mentous it may be.
The China correspondent of the N. York
Times says : " You will get but a moderate
supply of tea this year, and you will make
much of it, for stranger things have happen
ed than that the tea farms of China should
be waste places in another year. The gene
ral trade of the country is so broken up that
nothing but money can be used for any com-
mercial purpose. The green tea districts of
J Hwng-Chow would be the battle field of the
j Tartars and Chinese, if the latter were driv-
jen back on Nankin ; the Niog-Young coun
followine. try is already the theatre of a nredatorv waT.
