1 l,o diet that all old party issues are

tie aro therefore to be fought on issue
of th living present.. No abstraction or

of )re$tnl, real, direct in' crest to every

hinged upon tho grout question of tho

dowing tho policy of Franklin Fierce, tho
other contending for the immediate pro-
toction of the territories by lawst-imilir to
theso drafltd by Thomas Jeffereon and

indicates to us tho condition of things in

thick warm mist, that the sun seeks in
vain to ponotrale. Trees, lofty and beau

but there a group of Indians together ;
they flit to and fro with something like

There was a hush in thnt princely par

from some manly bosom. The bride
stood yet upright, with qnivering lip, and
tears stealing to the ontward edge of hor
Iiibhos. Her beautiful arm had lost its

red waves, camo slowly towards tho range
of I,ur vision. Sho snoko aain i every

A groan ran through the assembly ; so
vivid was her description, so unearthly
was her look, so inspirod her manner,
that what she described seemed actually
to hare taken placo then and there. They
noticed, also, that the bridegroom hid his
hands, and was weeping.

quivering aster, and her voice more
broken ; "and they scoop him a grave,

Bottlk Votaok. Captain Beechor, ed
itor of the English Nautical .Magazine,
has compiled within the lust ten years
the following curious voyage of bottles
thrown into the sea by.unfotunute navi
gators: A good many bottles thrown in
10 the sea next the African coast, found
their way to Europo. .'The bottle seems
to have anticipated the Austral Panama
route, h.ving traveled from the Isthmus
of Panama to the Irish coast. Another
crossed tho Atlantic from the Canaries to
Nova Scotia. Three or four bottles thrown
into tho sea by Greenland mariners on
Davis Staight, landed on the north-west
coast of Ireland. Another one mado ft
very curious tr ip ; it swam from the south
Atlantic Ocean to the West coast of Af
rica, passed Gibralter, went along the
Portugese coast of France, passing Brest,
and was finally picked up on Jersey It
land; the direct line touches at all those
place, and makes it more than probable
it took this route. One bottlo was only
found after sixteen years swimming, oue
after fourteen, and two afier ten years.
A few only traveled more tha i one year,
and one only five days. This last went
off by the captain of tho Racbhorso, on
the 17th of April, in Carrihean Sea, and
wa found on tho d. aftor having gone
through throo degrees of loiip'itude .in a
wsstern direction. Captaiu MuClure, of
the Investigator, well known since the
disoovery of the North West Stiaight,
threw a bottle into tho sea 111 lti.r)U, on
his way to Bohring'a Strait. It swam
3,6000 miles in 206 days, and was picked
up on the Honduras coast.
The Ancestors of the British Aristocracy.
The Normans camo out of France into
England worse men than when they went
in to it, one hundred and sixty years be
fore.. They had lost their own language,
and learned the Romance or barbarous
Latin of the Gauls; and had acquired,
with the language, all the vice it hud
names for. The Conquest has obtained
iu the Chronicle the name of the 'Memory
of Sorrow.' Twenty thousand thieves
landedat Hastings. Tliejo' founders of
the House of Lords were greedy and fero
cious dragoons, sons of grejiiy and fero
cious ptratos. They were all alike, they
took everyth.nc they could carry, they
burned, harried, violated, ' tortured and
killed, until everything English wasbro't
to the verge of ruin. Such, however, is
the allusion of antiquity and wealth, that
deut ai'd dignified men now existing
boast their flosoent from these filthy
thieves who showed a far juster convic
tion of thoir own merits, by assuming for
thoir types the swine, goat, jackal, o

romantio story of a charming young can
tatrice, who was on tho evo of marrying
a worthless adventurer. She had beon
warned against him, but in vain, and ihe
day for the wedding fixed, the singer was
invited to meet a large party at the house
of princely compeer, there in take her
farewell of the namo sho had rendered
celebrated, and play in an opera composed
by hor host. Amongst tho guest invited
was an elderly Duchess, of more than .
doubtful reputation, who wa herself in

termined to prevent the marringe, sho
contrived lo substitute ono of hi letter
to her written only the day before, and
speaking most slightingly of his future
wife for a letter to be read by the hero- .

and stood riveted to the spot, pale as

play was brought to an abrupt tormina

tlT What Will Poor fiIRca Do ?
This is an interesting question. What
will poor Pierco do? Ho has yet four
months grace left him in which to do
something. If he chooses, wilhin that
time he may remove the greatest stumb
ling block in the way of Mr. Buchanan
tho Kansas question. Should Mr. Pierc
assumo the responsibility, and ecure the
admission of Kansas as a Free State, Le
will atone, in that single act, foa all the
Border Ruffianism of which L Lis teen
guilty during tLe List two years. We go
further, and declaeeitas our fixed belief
that Buchanan should be relieved from
the responsibility of making Kansas a
Slavo Stato; for he was nominated because,
1. : 1. 1 1
jus uniiunwere clean 01 any participation
in this plot of Davis and Atchison for ex
tending slavery into free territory by forc
of arms. At least this dirty piece of work,'
assumed by Mr. Pierce, should be finish
ed by him. Why should the schema
wlncb has broken down poor Pierc b
transferred to the shoulder of Buchanan?
Wby saddle him with this "Old Man of
the Sea?" Mr. Pierce should relieve his
successor of thi ugly p!ee of businoss ;
and by admitting Kansas a a Free Stato,
he will save Buchanan, save the Demoo
racy, and put them on thoir pegs again,
and return to Concord in a perfect blaaa
of glory. What will poor Pierce do? It
is plain what he ought lo do; but still
