There U a place, where, from the noisy world,
A tweet retirement I bar often sought J
Where, quite secure la all my solitude,'
My foul has reveled la Ji reulml vt thought;
Where dwell the f cuius of the brilliant past,
The .works of writers both tabliine and clever,
Who, mute but eloquent, lire on my shelves.
And who'll exist in memory forever I ,
'Tis here, with pen In hand, I nightly seek

Into the world of glorious literature ,

And playful fancies, Jiko a troop of fairies.
Dance gracefully and lightly through my brain;
And yet, at time, ome sad'ning recollection
IotU fill this heart of uiiuc with grief and pain.
Fragrant with flowers, adorned with gems of art,
My sanctum is the swectet of all bower,
Where, sometimes with a dear and eheriehed

Shall ever tempt me from this place to roaul,
Saered to friendship, loyalty and truth,
Surrounded by tho blest dolights of home !
THE MAGNITUDE OF THE PUBLIC
WORKS OF THE rNITEP STATES".
It has been fashionable to compare un
favorably tho works of this country with
those of Kuropo. To such an extent baa
this been carried that it is not unfre. juent
ly said that we have to look to England
or the Continent for mot of our exam
ples. Wo aro continually told by trav
elers of tho preat extent, beauty and du
rability of the continental works, and of
tho enormous strength of tho Eugliah
structures. Now it is irfectly true that
Europe can boast of railroads, canals
bridges, and aqueducts unrivaled in the
world for lcauty and excellence of work
manship and design, but it is equally true
Hint America can point to works of utili
ty that, in tho magnificence of their pro
portions aro not exceeded anywhere.
The Juliau Aqueduct of Koine is two
miles longer thau tho Croton Aqueduct
of Xcw York, built by John 1J. Jcrvis
und Horatio Allen, but tho Croton car
ries moro water than all tho seven aque
ducts of Home put together, and more
tiian any other aoueduct m tuo world,
and is longer than any other excepting
The Illinois Central Railroad built by
Col. Mason, m the longest lino erer con- j
structed by ouo company, and in point of
workmanship is equal to any European
Tho National Road over tho CuttuVr
land mountains, built by tho United
States Engineer Corjs, is moro cxten
fcivo and durable by far than the Appian
The btone arch over Cabiu John's Creek,
on the. Washington aqueduct, built by
Captain Meigs, is alout fifty feet greater
span than any other stono arch in tho
world, aud is moro beautiful in proportion
than the arch over tho Oca, so long cele
brated for its magnificence,
. Tho tunnel built by Mr. Haunt, on the
summit of the Pennsylvania Railroad, was
a more difficult work than tho tunnel un
der tho Tliamcs.
Tho Ftructuros of tho Baltimore and
Ohio Railroad at Harper's Furry, aud be
yond the summit, built by Latrobe, and
tho slation and viuduct, on the New Yt'fk
and Eric Railroad, built by J ulius Adams,
aro equal in magnificence and exccllenco
of workmanJiip to anything Brunei over
did in England, or Morgan iu Franco.
Tho Suspension Bridgo over the Niag
ara river at Lcwiston, built by Major Ser
rcl, is 1,042 feet 10 inches, in ono span,
and is 43 ft. greater than any other sin
gle span in tho world, being nearly twice
as great and quite as ktroug as Telford's
celebrated bridgo over tho Mcnai straits
Tho United States Dry Dock at Brook
lyn, is tho largest dry dock in tho world
by many feet. Tho workmanship, dono
under tho direction of Mr. McAlmne anil
Gen. Stuatt, is equal, if not superior, to
anything of tho - kind anywhere. The
plates of iron used iu tho gates of this
dock nro the largest thai had ever been
made up to tho timo they were rolled.
The Uight of combined locks on. tho
Eric canal at Lock port, built by tho State
Engineer's aro equalled only in ono other
place m Christcudon (bwoden.)
Tho Railroad Suspension Bridgo built
by Roebliu'r over the Niagara river, is
within a few foet of twice the span of
Stephenson's great Tubular Bridgo in
England, tho largest structure of tho
kind. It is 800 feet in ono span, aud
is two stories high, tho railroad being
abovo the public highway. . Nothui-ihke
this exists anywhere else.
Tho Light houso on Minot'a Lodge,
being built by Capt Alexander, is in a
moro exposed situation, and as far as pro
ceeded" witli, is moro securely bolted to
gether than tho famous Eddystouo Jight
houso in England.
Tho Bridge at Wheeling, built by C.
Ellct, is exceeded, only in fpan by tho
Lewistou Bridge, and is heavier than it;
it is tho second largest span in the world,
and u much more beautiful than the IVi
J bourg Bridge k European rival.
In carpentry we are unexcelled in the
world, ouch structures in timber aa the
Dry Docks at San Francisco and Phila

bridges on tho Erie Railroad and branch

Railroad, built by StanchO, Col. Loncr'a
bridges on tho New England JUilroada,
and How's trusses at Harrisbur, have
not their equals across the Atlantic, .
Then, again, in Europo many structures
are built that might have been avoided

The stones on either corner of tlie Ex
change in Boston, built by Rodgers, aro
larger than any single stono m Cleopa
tra a needle, and those now being pnt in
to the United States Treasury at Wash
ington aie much heavier than any stono
of Pompey'a pillar, or tho Pyramids' of
Lgypt . ,
As to tho difficulties of location, thero
is no country w here more science and skill
have been brought to bear than in ours,
and it is a remarkable fact that in point
of tim, last year, our average traveling
was faster by two and a half miles per
hour than in England, comparing our
principal linos w ith theirs, while the
charges on tho American lines was but
little over half tho English rales.
Tho reason why tlicso things are not
generally known is, that here we build a
great work, announce its completion in
tho same advertisement that heralds tho
ojcning of tho road, and no more is said
about it, except porbajis, what may ap
pear in one or two scientific periodicals,
where dry feet and inches, stress, strain
and toilion are discussed, and are never
read except by the professional engineer.
While on tho contrary, England and
France, as soon as a great w ork is built,
and while it is being erected, pictures by
thousands are published, medals are
struck ami circulated, gla.ss models are
made, and the illustrated nowKpajers show
it in every stage of progress aud from' ev
ery point of view ; tho ciicriueer is knighted,
if ho is not already of tho nobility, and
the famo of tho structure is sent from
land to land; while with us, as we have
shown, may be found 8f mo of tlie most
gigantic works over undertaken that aro
rvassed by and over without hardly any
notice.' It is rcmariablo that' the "best
popular descriptions of our own public
works of great magnitudes are to bo
found in the journals of r rancc and uer
manv. luor. rew lorn nines.

A LOVELY SCENE.
Somo two years ago, in one of the
northern counties of irginia, whilo in at
tendance at the Houso of God, I witness-
a most impressive and lovely scene. Tlie
minister oi uoa stood by tlio baptismal
font, while in hi arms he held a lovely
child, which scarce twelve months liad
aeon; pure, spotless, sinless, innocent
thing, it was about to be consecrated, yea,
dedicated, to Almighty God. Having
placed his finger in tho liquid, ho crossed
tho sweet smiling forehead of the inno
cent babe, at tho same time giving utter
ance to the words of tho Saviour fI
liaptiae thee in tho name of the Father,
Son, and Holy . Ghost." The child re
mained calm and quiet until ho had fin
ished, when, leaning over to the font, it
dipcd its tiny finger iuto tho pure tle-

meuu uuu iu turn crossed me lurrowcu
brow of the sonant of God. It drew n
smile from tho conrreration. It was a
lovely sight, and never nhall I forget it. J

on earth when he took tho littlo lambs
in his arms , and blessed them, and said,
"suffer them to comounto mo." I tho't
