To Mrs. McUmber, on the death of her
Mother.
Mourn not for her, her soul is fled,
Her body now is numbered with the
dead;
Her painful conflicts, long though great,
are o'er,
And mortal pains can ne'er afflict her
more. . ,
Her lips did often with the assembly join
In fervent prayer and singing hymns di
. Tine;
Her willing ear received the welcome
word
Of Christ her suffering and triumphant
"''' Lord.
Her shining virtues still her worth Im
part. And stamps her name upon her chil
dren's heart;
My mem'ry does thy mother's image
hold
More precious far than mines of massy
gold.
Her children's tears, sad orators, can
tell
The death of a mother that they loved
so well;
Her name shall live though not in sculp
tured stone,
To be rehearsed by ages not her own.
In the bright annals of celestial fame,
Where none are written but of pious
name,
May husband and children meet her
- when they die.
To shout hosannas far above the sky.
BY A FRIEND.

Scenes of the Civil War in Hungary.
This is the title of a volume recent
ly published in England. It is a
translation of a work written by an
Austrian officer, who seems to have
had rather a roving than a regular
commission for a German newspa
per. Tho -descriptions . are racy,
and throw a good deal of light upon
what the Austrians suffered and in
Dieted through the suicidal war car
ried during Hungarian independence;
but very little, or rather none at all
upon the great question at issue, or
the actual plans and designs of the
leaders on either side. The testimo
nies to the bravery of the Hungari
ans are numerous throughout the
volume, and not unfrequently is the
chivalrous character, of their under
taking acknowledged. A romantic
passage is introduced which we may
extract. The party under the wri
ter's command take3 up its quarters
in a castle: " -
"At the tramp of the horses, and
the clank of swords, the porch door
opened, and an old man, a kind of
Steward, followed by servants with
great lanterns, came towards us,ask-
ing who wo were, and what was
our errana. l replied that l was
an officer of the Emperor and King,
belong to the ban; and requested in
the first place, to be conducted to
the mansion. The man obeyed
though with some reluctance, and
ed me into a spacious hall, bv the
ght of the lamp, appeared to be a
sort oi ancestral hall. Large pic
tures were hung upon the walls, and
between them swords, muskets, old
armor, and arms of all kinds.
"Here the Castellan bade me wait,
while he went to announce me; and
availed mysell of this moment to
ike ofl my cloak , to right it a little,
to fasten mv dolman close about me,
to tie my sash properly; in short to
make mvself as smart as possible.
The old man presently came back,
conducted me alone a corridor and
then opened the folding doors of an
partment, whence issued the bril
liant light of tapers.
"Somewhat dazzled, I entered the
apartment, which was most elegant
ly fitted up, where a tall, handsome
lady received me with a polite, but
proud obeisance. I was just going
to introduce myself and to apologise
for my unbidden visit, when 6he ex
tended her hand to me with loud ex
clamations of joy, Ah, Baron W.P
"l now recognized her. It was
the Countess St , the Milan beau
ty, the wife of mv old comrade,
St, who once saved my life in
Bologna, snd who, after his marri
age with the fair Marchesa B
had obtained leave to resign, and re
tired to his lordship in Hungarv; and
found myself, without having sus
pected it, in his mansion.
"Being called by his wife, he made
his appearance immediately, and cor
dial was our embrace. He was still
as he ever had been, Magyar with
body and soul; and told me frankly
that he should long since have gone
to Kossuth, had he not been restrain
ed by the odious idea of being obliged
to fight against his former comrades;
but he assured me that he would yet
doso. '
"I advised that we should not talk
political matters, but rather think
old times; and his wile approved
the suggestion. By and by came
his sister, the young- con nt ess He
Iene, the most beautiful Hungarian
female I had ever seen; and that is
laying a great deal.
St gave me his word and
honor that we were perfectly safe
from any surprise by the enemy, and
my men were abundantly supplied
with wine and meat; and, while they
made themselves comfortable out
side, I found myself in Paradise, be
tween two beaulilul and amiable fe
males, opposite to a friend whom I
had not seen or a long time, and
before a glass of exquisite tokav. All
my weariness vanished; and we joked
and laughed half the night, for
getting the war and' Kossuth and
national haired. - C v ' "
"Two days I rested" in St 's
mansion, as a little respite was high
ly desirable' for both men and hor
ses. i he eves of the Countess' He
lena began to be dangerous for me;
but upon the ' earth the soldier has
no abiding quarters. On the third
morning, with a tear in - my eye, I
pressed SI to my breast," kissed
the cheek of his wife and his -sister;
the latter plucked a rosebud for me
as a keepsake," my trumpeter -sounded

sides, at least ten or twelve thousand
men in the fire. ' On this ' occasion
the enemy again had a numerous
and excellent light cavalry, and had
the skill to employ it on ground fa
vorable for himself, so that our in
fantry was repeatedly exposed to
the most violent attack', and had th
greatest difficulty to ward them off.
. - .. .. ,
1 wo squadrons in particular, of
very well organized and equipped
Honveds, distinguished themselves
by their furious charges on Croatian
infantry battalions, and could at last
not be compelled to retreat but by
several discharges of grape, which
made dreadful havoc in their ranks
"the leader or this corps, a man
of tall, elegant figure, in the rich
dress of magnate, mounted on a su
perb, spirited, gray stallion, which
he managed with great dexterity,
was indefatigable In always rallying
his men, and leading them back
against our infantry. He galloped
to and fro with as much unconcern
as if the balls whizzing around him
were but snow-balls, continually
flourishing his glistening blade
"The figure of the rider seemed
to be well known to me; but I could
not distinguish his features, as we
were drawn up in rear of our col
umn of infantry, at the distance of
some hundred paces from him
"Twice he had escaped unhurt the
fire of our infantry; when, as I have
already mentioned, some guns
which had meanwhile came up, be
gan to fire with grape. He seemed
not to heed the first discharge, for 1
saw him, still DrisK and animated as
ever, galloping about at the head ol
his men. The second must have
been directed better: for when the
smoke cleared off, I could perceive
the horse and rider on the ground.
"At the same moment we received
the signal for charging. The ranks
for our infantry suddenly opened to
let us pass through, and we advanced
at full gallop upon the enemy's
horse. These, at first, retired pre
cipitately, to get beyond the range
of our cannon, then rallied, and
drove us back; we did the same by
them; and so we went on, till at
length, as it is usual in Hungary, the
whole dissolved into single combats
in which man is engaged hand to
hand with man.
"It was nearly dark, when, with
my troop, some oi wnom were kil
led, others severely wounded, I
reached the main body. Scarcely
had we unsaddled, and, tired to
death, I was about to stretch myself
by the watch fire, fed with the ru
ns of houses which had been pulled
down, when an infantry soldier, ap
pointed to hospital duty, came to in
form me that an officer of the insur
gents, dangerously wounded and la
ken prisoner, having heard my name,
wished to speak to me.
"In spite of wearinesss, I immedi
ately followed mv guide to the hur
dle-shed which was fitted tip for a
hospital. Dismal was the appear
ance of this dark, low place, scanti
lighted by the hand lanterns of
the surgeons and attendants, who,
with their blood stripped - sleeves
tucked up high and with aprons
equally bloody, were busily engaged.
The wounded lay close to one an
other upon dirty straw, which in
places was quite wet and slippery
from the blood upon it. Loud and
gentle sighs, moans, groans, gnash
ing of teeth, mingled at times with
curses in the Bohemian, Polish, Hun
garian, German and Croatian lan
guages. I was obliged to rally my
courage lest I should be scared back.
"In the furthest corner of the long
building, on a bed of straw, lay the
wounded prisoner, who wished to
speak to me. How was I shocked
when the light of the attendant's
lantern, fell upon his face, and i re
cognized Count St!

Pittsburgh Mayor—Further Freaks.
to
The official conduct of the Mavor
for the past few days, has been, if
possible, more outrageous than ever.
On Wednesday he arrested John
Barton, Esq., a member of the Pitts
burgh Bar, under the following cir
cumstances. Mr. (jutzman, a Ger
man, who a short time ago, became
security in the sum of four thousand
dollars for Barker's appearance at
Court, and for his keeping the peace.
Gutzman, afterwards received a let
ter, warning him that Barker's re
cognizances were about to be forfeit
ed, and in alarm, he went to consult
Mr. Barton, who, finding that the
Alderman actually had forfeited the
recognizance, Barker having drawn
pistol on one of our oldest and
most respectable citizens, a short
time before, advised him to take out
bail piece and surrender the May
or. Gutzman went round to tell Bar
ker that he must get other bail, and
when he heard the name of G.'s law
yer, he went to Mr. Barton's office,
and raising his cane, commenced
cursing and reviling. , . ,
Mr. B. at once ordered his honor
leave the room, which he did,
threatening to have him in the watch
house in three minutes. Next day
he sent three of his constables round
to arrest B. but as the warrant was
Ilegal, not charging him with any
offence, he refused to go, and told
the officers to arrest him at their per-
Ihu they declined doing and
went away. After transacting some
business, Mr. Barton, acting under
the advice of some friends, went
round to the Mayor's Office, when
his honor, who was not in a very fit
condition to try any one, ordered
im to be taken to the cells below.
His officers being afraid to comply
with his demand, the Mayor drew a
pistol and presented it at Mr. B. The
pistol was taken from him, and he
drew another one, cocking it, which
was also taken from him. . He then
became perfectly infuriated, foaming
the mouth, and Mr. Barton who
had drawn a knife to defend himself
was hustled into the back yard, his
friends resisting, as much as possible,
the individuals who act Barker's offi
cers. It was then found that the
person who had the keys of the cells,
having become alarmed, had run
away with some others, and Mr. B.
was called into the back room of the
office, where the Mayor was leaning
the table, troth issuing from his
mouth. ., , ,
Mr. Barker's son then discharged
him from custody till four o'clock
that afternoon, (it was then long past
tour,) and he has not since been mo
lested. Pittsburgh Gazette.: ..

Henry , W.:. Ells worth, , Esq.
says the ..Lafayette Journal, has
shown us several specimens of leath
which were tanned under his own
eyes, in the space of ten minutes, by
process of which Marmon Hibberd,

that six, eight,, and tea. months; are
required to tan leather by the ordi

Pittsburgh Mayor—Further Freaks. Ex-Governor Shannon's Opinion of California.
We find in the Steubenyille Herald
a letter from Ex-Governor Shannon
to his family. In this State, which
gives a very dark and gloomy colo
ring to existing prospects and affairs
hi California! The letter is dated
San Francisco, August 26th.

these failures. 1

Exploration op thr Rio Grande.
government officer, Maj. Chap
man, has made a report to the War
Department, giving the result of an
exploration to the Rio Grande, made
by Captain Love. These explora
tions, says the Philadelphia Ledger,
were made for a distance of 967
miles in a keel-boat drawing eigh
teen inches of water, and 47 miles
further in a skiff, which was carried
round falls impassible to large crafts.
The substance of the report is that
the Rio Grande flows through a ve
ry fertile country, most of it under
cultivation; with abundant game.
and supporting immense flocks of
sheep and herds of goats. Capt
Love thinks the entire valley is pe
culiarly fitted for raising sheep, as
from the mildness of the climate
they require no sheds during the
whole year. Two inexhaustable
mines of bituminous coal have been
opened on the Texas side of the riv
er, and mention is made of several
rich silver mines on the Mexican
side, some forty or fifty miles back
from Presidio Rio Grande, which
were formerly worked to advantage
by the Spaniards! '

"Thr Rcmjio Passion Strong in

Wilson, whose lamented decease oc
curred at-his residence in this city,
on the morning of, the 17th inst.,

He retired from editorial labor, how

capacity, newspaper reading contin

he continued: "Open the window
