A Weary Life it is lu have Xo

Ho I ye who at the anvil toil,
And strike the sounding blow,
Where Tout the burninr Irta's breast
The epi ks fly to tn fro,
Whl e answering to U. hammer's ring,
And fire's inUnaer glow
Oh, while we feel 'lis hard to toil
And aweat the long day through,
Remember it is hsrder still
To have no woik to dot
Hoi ye who till tht stubborn soil,
Whose bard hands g tide the plow,
Who bend ben a h the Summer sun,
With burning ehtek and brow
Ye deem the curse still dings to earth
From old n tim- till now
But whi'e ye fVel 'tis hard to toil
And labor all day through,
Remember it is harder still
To have no work to do I
Ho I ye who plow the sea's blue field's
Who ride the restless wave.
Beneath whose ga'lant vessel's keel
There lies yawing grave.
Around whos birk the wlntery winds
Like fieni!s of fury rave
On, while ye feel is hard to toil '
And labor long hours through, '
Remember it is I arder still
To have no work to do.
Hoi ye upon whose fervred cheeks
The hectic glow is bright ;
Whose mental toil wears o it the day
And half the weary night;
Who hhor for the souls of men, '
Champions of trut and right
Although ye feel your toil is hard,
Even with his g'orious view,
Pemember It Is hirder still
To have no work to do.
all who labor all who strive
Ye wield a lofty power j
Do with your might, do with your strength,
Fill every go'den hour ;
The glorious privilege, to do,
Is mail's most noble dower.

To your own souls be true 1

in ,a couple of months, to give me the
change as t ey are to be found in the.r

when they immedintely recognized it a
one of the old national airs of their native

should be found iu old B acay.
RoaraT Fultcn. Among a thou
sand indiw luals, you inijht readily point
out Robert F lion, lie was con-picuous
f..r his gentlemanly bearing; and freedom
from embarrassment ; for hi extreme ac
tivity ; his bight somewhat over six feet;
his fcl -nder, yet energetic form, and well
a con in xiated dress; for his full and cur
ly brown hair, carelessly scattered "ver
hi forehead and falling round about his
n-ck. Ill complexion was fair; hi
eyes dark, aid large, and penrating,
an I revolving in a cxpicinus orbii of cav
ernous depth; his brow was thick, and
evinc d rength and determination ; his

and lips were beautifully proportioned
giving the impress of eloquent utterance,
equally as his eyes displayed, according
t phrenology a pictorial talent and the
I'nioii of Rations.
The Ion; lookod-for and long prayed

The laying of the Submarine Cable, is
doubtless the most 'sublime achievement
of the nineteenth century. It is not sim
ply wonderful, but it is practical and use
ful. It w ill do much good, perhaps the
greatest good in working out the great
problem of the well being of the race.
By its use, man will be brought in close
contact with hi fellows; individuals and
nations will under.tutid each other better,
and hence peace and good-will must be
the result. Inten ommunication of thought
and sentiment, will assimilate and fuse the
jaring elements of earth, and cause man
to respect that great principle of right,
which will iftiite men in the bonds of uni
The nations of the earth, will be able
to bit in their own legislative halls, and do

will need no longer the services of Lord

The Dalles," a word which occurs so
frequently in the news from Oregon, is a
name criven to a narrow passage on the
Columbia river, some fifty miles above
the Cascades, where the stream passes
between immense walls of basaltic rock,
only three hundred feet asunder. The
name, which ia pronounced as if written
dolls, tnetns "slab; and was (riven,
doubtless, by early French trappers, as
descriptive of the remarkable masses of
basalt, which are not dissimilar to flag
stones set upon end, and cemented to
gether. The commerce of Lake Erie this sea
son, thus far exceeds that of any previous
year, and it is believed that the close of
navigation will show an increase of at
east one-third in the flour and ifrain re
