Knowledge iierer learned of schools,
Of the wild bee's morning chase.
Of the wild flower's time and place,

Of the tananls of the wood ;
How the lortoiae bears his shell,

FUN FROM JOHN PHENIX.
V rather iliitik upon the whole, that
we shall violute no couGdunce, nor do any
particular hurt, by pormitiing the reader
to have a peep at the following pnwngeg
from a private letter from Joliu I'heinx,
dated from Portland, Oregon Territory,
the latter purl of August Ust. Hisepis
lie ends with a poem, which is scarcely
luss characteristic than tho letter itself:
'It gives mo unfeigned pleasure to in
form you that I am about to quit the
gloomy and never-to be-dried-up sky of
Oregon, and 'repair without unner,eary
delay' to D , on out borders. Yes,
Sir, I'm off; nervioes no longer required
on these jntlenient shores shores which,
when you read of in Irving's 'Astoria,'
you naturally wish to bliold, and ad
mire old Antor's pluck in making estab
lishments thereon, and which, when you
reach, you wish yon hadn't, and admire
still more old Astor'a gcod sense in
breaking his establishments up, and quit
ting whilo there w yet lime.
Haiti is an exceedingly pleasant and
gratifyi g institution in its wy, and in
moderation; it causesthe grass to grow,
the blosioms to flourish, and is a positive
necessity to the umbrolla maker; but
when you got to a country where it rains
incessantly twentysix hours a day, for
seveuteon months in a year, yon eunnol
resist having the conviction forced upon
vour mind that the thing is slightly
overdone. That's the case m Oregon; it
commenced raining pretty heavily on the
third of last November, and continued Up
to the Dftoenth of May, when it t in for
a long storm, which ibtt'l fairly over yet.
There's moisture for you.
'The consequence of this awful cli
mnte are just what might be supposed.
The immense quantity of the protoxide
squirted about here causes trues, build
ings, streets, everything, to present a di
luted and wishy-washy appearance. The
women lose their color, the men their
Lair, (asLod off, oil',) aud the animals,
by constrint exposure, acquire scalos and
fins. liko the natives of the grat deep.
In fno', all the inhabitants of this territo
ry have K generally tcaly appearance, and
r-'joice in a peculiar rmell. a combination
I should say. of fih tail and a mud
sucker. The rains of Orogon beat any
thing in that line I ever beheld or con
ceived of. Those that full on Noah's ark
were not more heavy; those of Nero, Ca
ligula, and I. Neely Johnson, not more
terrible, nor those of Lady Suffolk and
Moscow longer or stronger, which is a
slightly mixed metaphor of a very happy
description. So, upon the whole, I'm
glad I'm off; yes, I am quite sure of it:
and I lonrr to I'd to I , where the
people enjoy tho light of the blessed sun,
and where I can enjoy it also, and dry
my things, and read Irving's 'Astoria.'
'Howheit, there are many interesting
and curious things in Oregon; many odd
and entertaining people also therein; and

a country in which i have hau so much
positive enjoyment, were it not that I
have chronicled all these amusing thini's
and peculiarities, and shall lie glad to get
somewhere where I can have a drv
laugh over thorn. Such a thing as 'dry

I recoived my Knicltrlocl-tr Maga

and felt extremely tickled at your most

I enclose a short 'Poem,' which tolls its
own story. Set to music 'sulhin, slow,
and melancholy-like and accompnmed

be well adnyted for the parlor, the boud

blacksmith, aye, an humble blacksmith,
but in his btout frame, burdened wilh
'oil, throbbed as generous an impulse of
freedom as ever beat in the bosom of La
Fayette, oi around the heart of mad An
thony Wayne. '
it was in full tide of the retreat that a
follower of the American camp, who had
at least shouldered a cart-whin in his
country's service, was dragging a baggage
wagon from the held of battle, wl'iiea
short distance behind, a body of contin
entals were pushing forward with a body
of British in pursuit.
The wagon had arrived ai a narrow
point of the by road lending to the south
where two hiifh banks of rocks and crags,
arising on either aide, afforded just spnee
sufficient for the passage of the baggage
wagons, and not an inch more. 1

from his muscular arm, he ley extended
on tho turf with his rifle in his grasp,

blood flowed down from his wound. I

they eamo tramjilinir over this vallov. and
burned my house down. And now I'm

it was not long hefore a body or Amer

in pursuit. The blacksmith greeted them
wilh a shout, and, raising his rifle to his
shouldot, he picked tho foremost from his
spirited steed, with the exclamation :
" Thnt's fur General Washington 1"
In a moment tho rifle was re-loaded,
and again it was fired, and the pursuing

1. It is mean.. A man of high moral

2. 1 1 is vnhjar; altogethor to low for

3. It is cowardly; implying a fear eith

4. It is unqentltmatily. A gentleman,
according to Webster, is a gtntiel man
well bred, refined. Such a one will '.o
more swear, thnn go iino the street to
throw mud with a clod -hopper.
fi. It is indecent; offensive to delicacy,
and extremely unfit for human ears.

A Lesson in Hospitality and Humility.
A while ago, s young gentleman visited
a venerable man, a high dignitary of the
Church, who for special reasons, lived on
small menus, at a low ront, in a quit)
lordly mansion. Assuming that the oc
cupant of such a dwellig must have ser
vants of all sorts, the visitor on retiring,
put his boots outside the door to be clean
ed, according to cu-lorn. Next morning,
on looking out of his chamber, ho saw
his silver-haired host in dressing gown
and slippers, coming quietly along the
entry, with said boots nicely brushed and
shining liko a mirror, in his patriarchal
hands. The astonishment and mortifi
cation of the guest may bo imagined.
But let that pass. The thing to te con
sidered is the noble old man, so rendy to
do what some foolish people would coi-
aider a menial act. rather limn be wanting
