A NEW POEMBY WHITTJER.
From the advance sheets of the Atlantic Monthly
for August, we take the following poem, by the
Quaker poet of Now Koglond:
MY P.SAL M .
T ! a. WHITT1M.
I mourn no more my vanished years;
Beneath a tender rain,
An April rain of smiles and tears,
My heart la young again.
. Tho weat winds blow, and, singing low,
I bear tbe glad streams run;
Tbe windows of my onul 1 throw
Wide open to ho aun, r
Ko longer forward nor eeklad -
I loott In hope and fear;
Bnt, grateful, take the good 1 Und,
The beat of now and here.
I plough no mora a desert land,
To harvest weed and tare;
The manna dropping from God's band,
Rebukes my painful care.
I break my pilgrim staff, I lay
Aside the toiling oar;
The angel sought so far away
I welcome at my door.
The airs or spring may play
Among tbe ripe nitig corn,
Nor fresuress of the flowers of May
Blow through the Autumn morn.
Yet shall the blue-eyed gentian look
Through fringed lids to heaven,
And the pale aster in the brook
Shall see Its image given;
The woods shall wear their robos of praise,
The south wind softly sigh, .
And sweet, culm days In golden haze
Melt down the amber sky.
Not leu shall manly deed and word
Kubuke an age of wrong;
The graven flowers thnt wreath the sword
Make not tbe blades less strong.
But smiting hands shall learn to heal,
To build as to destroy;
Nor less my heart for others feel
1 hat 1 the more enjoy.
All as God wills, who wisely heods .
To give or to wlthbold,
And kuoweth more of all my needa -
Thau ull my prayers bare toldl
Enough that blessings undeserved
Huve marked my orring track
That wberusooVr my feel have swerved,
His cuaaluning turu'd me buck
That more and more a Providenco
Of tove Is understood,
M iklnir the sprit. gs of time and sense
Sweet wilh eternal good
Thnt death siems but a covered way
YMiich opens into light,
V herein no blinded child can atray
Beyond the i-'alber's sight
Thnt eare and triiil' seems at last,
Through Memory's sunset air.
Like inounluiH-raiiges overpusl,
.lu purple disUneu luir
Thut all Ihe Jarring notes of life
Hecin blending in n phulm.
And all llie angels of its strife
Slow rounding into calm.
And so the shadows fall apart,
And so the west winds phi);
And all llie windows of my heart
1 open lo the day.
From the Slur in the west.
Sunday Doings Among Horses.
Our paisuu is one of llie kind who gives
llie people the worth of their money, so he
gels up pretty extensive sermons lor such
hot days. Lusi Sunday I sat till he got to
I Ithlv, and, by that lime, 1 got as dry as
a contribution box; so I stepped out, to get
a (I i ink at the pump. Ihe meeiing house
is on the cornet, and the horses are hitched
along on boili sides. f
As I went out, 1 saw something was on
foot among llie nags; most of them had
their ears back, and were showing their
teeili, and btamping in anything but a re
ligious mood. When I got my fluid
down I slopped lo investigate the distur
bance among the horses, and as 1 knew
liorse-lalin, sat down on the steps to take
All outside the rails and hitching post,
in a paved gutter, each beating a tattoo
wiih a (juarteue of iron hoofs, which I at
fj ist thought would be more profitable for
ihe black milh and farrier, than for the
owner; but as the owners were mostly rich,
it was none ot my business.
The little Black reached his head over
to the 1 it tie Chestnut and Whispered some
thing; when ihe Chestnut moved the
meeting be organized, by calling the Big
Bay to the chair. This motion was car
ried, and the chairman, proceeded to state
the object ot the meeting as follows:
Fellow Horses: We have now or
ganized ourselves into a convention for the
purpose of peaceably discussing our grievance-,
in accordance with the republican
character of our inalienable righis. We
are brought from our stables and pastured
every Sunday, lo be lied up here in this
hot weather, upon a pavement ot villainous
boulders, exposed to the heat of a mid
summer sun aud the biles of mrroiless
flies. Many of us have not a stitch of fly
net to our backs, and all of us have been
mure or less incapacitated from proteciiug
ourselves, by having our tails clipped, to
graiiiy an unseemly fashion, which neither
our musters uor misliesses seemed (lis
posed bo houor at this time in their out
ward continuations. Besides, our check
reins ate left lied so tiuht that we cannot
Lite a fly from our shoulders or ease Our
aching muscles a single minute. In view
ol iheae abuses, we feel that our condition
calls loudly fur redresB, and hope this con
vention will Revise some means of relief.
The Black then nominated the Chestnut
as Secreiary, which was asrreed on.
The Cream Color moved a committee ot
three to preseut a platform for the consid
e ration ol the meeting. Carried; and the
chair appointed the Cream, the Black and
ihe Roan said Committee.
While this committee was consulting to
gether, the Chair called for an expression
ol opiuion from the ditferent members of
the convention, and requested that each
one bring jn a resolution embodying his
senumenis; whereupon the lollowing were
By ihe Deacon's Yellow Mare

By Old White
liesvlved, Thit every horse should be
provided with a fly-net.
This was amended by the Sorrel, so as
to read, "and that the said fly-nets should
be constructed so as to protect the flanks
and legs, as well as the back and ears,''
ana in tins iorm mv imwuuuu
Bv the Bobtail Black
Keiohed, That it is an abridgement of
our own natural rights to curtail usutone

suffered lo suck our blood. Carried with
By the Black Pony
Retohed, That these flies bite like
Objected to by the Deacon's Yellow
Mare. (The Pony had been brought up
in a livery atabls where bis, morale had
been sadly neglected.) Jhe little Sorrel
said the Pony was right. The Old Dun
thought the language too strong for the
place, but would vote for it any other day
but Sunday. The Big Gray moved to
strike out all after Etsolved, and insert,
"that these flies have the faculty of caus
ing the members of this convention, and,
our race generally, much pain and annoy
ance." At this the Pony fairly kicked one leg
over the shaft, and bit a splinter from a
rail. He said:
Mr. Chairman, the horse just up is an
bid fogy; I go for calling things by their
right names. This standing up here in
such weather is a d d outrage, which no
Christian horse could endure. Master is
in there on his soft cushions, hearing Sha
drach, etc, in the fiery lurnace, that did
not burn them a whit, while we stand
here in a fiery furnace that does nearly
take the hair otf, and are tormented by flies
to bootl I protest against Dun's milk
and water substitute, and ot.U for the pre
vious question on my resolution.
This was seconded by the Bobtail Black.
Little Sorrel and Dapple Gray, and the
resolution was carried by a large majority.
The Cream announced that the commit
tee on a platform was ready to report, and
presented the following:
1st. Since the horses are deprived of
their natural defenses, they should be
effectually secured against flies, etc., while
confined in harness.
2d. No good Christian will leave his
horse tied in the sun, upon paving stones,
when there is a shade and soft ground
within fifty yards.
3d. The man who keeps a check rein
hitched up, while the horse is wailing by
ihe hour, ought to go to the place we read
4th. The provisions of the Golden Rule,
should be construed so as to applyflo
bnrtuwi s well as men.
This platform was adopted by a unani
mous ntigh, and the Secretary was ordered
to furnish a copy to every horse congre
gation in the city for ratification, wilh the
request that the subject be acted upon next
Just then the people began to come oul
of the church. The little Black tossed his
head and gave the Chestnut a wicked leer.
1 he Yellow Mare winnieu lor her colt, the
Ponv champed his bit sulkily, but all were
so glad to get away that they moved off
at the word, and I guess this convention,
like many others, will end only in talk.
However, it no relorm is ettectea in a snort
time, I shall look tor further action.
Chinese Immigration Wbat will
be Its Effect?
The persistent influx of the Chinese
peasantry into ihe United Slates, is a tact
which presses itself upon the attention
alike of the political economist and the
slatenman. Three thousand Celestials are
stated to be at this moment on their
way to San Francisco. California already
has a large Chinese population. Notwith
standing their characteristic vices, the
Chinamen, although not popular, are found
to be U8eul members of society. They
perform, wilh alacrity and intelligence, the
ruder kitas ot labor, are marvelously fru
gal in their habits, and are consequently
enabled to work tor very low wages.
Indeed, it is not improbable that the
poorer inhabitants of that vast empire,
which contains within Us limits nearly a
moiety of the human race, maybe destined
to work great changes in the industrial
if not in the social and political conditiou
of America. The mobt obvious immedi
ate effect of Chinese immigration, for in
stance, is to supplant the negro. The
uoone in uaiuornia nas aireaay made the
African impossible. Theie, as in tbe
West India Islands, the Malay laborer is
found to be, in all respects, preferable to
nm oaraer cousin.
The voluntary immigation from Canton
and Shanghi into our Pacific States bids
fair soon to be enormous. Hitherto it has
mainly been direoted to California, but it
will manifestly soon extend also. Nor is
there reason to doubt that it will soon
reach the Atlantio Slates as well
Assuming that these natives of China
may one day become as' numerous among
us as those of Europe, what shall their so
cial and political status be? Are they to
be regarded as whites, or people of color?
Shall they, equally with emigrants from
Ireland and Germany, be admitted to the
benebts ot our naturalization laws?
These are questions which flit and flicker
now along ihe political horizon. But the
march of events with us is rapid, and all
signs conspire to prove that we have seen
only the beginning of that strife of races
and principles by which the institutions of
the United States are, ere long, to be
proved as by fire.

And let me here remark, it is supposed
by many that railroad Eigineers are a

half a mile from tbe village of B
there is a neat little cottage, but a few feet

I had taken a great deal o' intereet in ihe
little fellow, and had tbnwn candy and

than the lightning that blasts the tall pine
upon the mountain top I whistled "down

knew it was 'iroposible to stop. Nobly
did the old engine try to stve him. The

Physical Benefit of tbe Sabbath.
The Sabbath is God's special present to
the working man, and one of its chief ob
jects is to prolong , his life, and preserve
efficient his working tone, In ne vh
system it acts like a compensation? pond;
it replenishes the spirits, the elasticity, and
vigor which the last six , have drained
away, and supplies the force which is to fill
the six days succeeding; and, in the econ
omy of existence, it answers the same pur
pose as, in the economy of income, is an
swered by a saving bank. The frugal man
puts away a pound to-day and another
pound next month, and he who, in a quiet
way, is putting by his stated pound trora
time to lime, when he grows old and frail,
gets not only the same pound back again,
but a-, good many pounds beside. And
the conacitntiojia man, who husbands one
day of his existence every week who, in
stead of allowing the Sabbath to be tram
pled and lorn in the huny and sorampls of
life, treasures it devoutly up, the Lord of
the fciabbalh .beeps it lor him, and, in the
length of days, the hale old age gives it

An Incident In tint

In returning from !
the middle of August,
very crowded, and my
Henry Ward Beeeher.
We will not guarantee the strict ortho
doxy of the following passage, from one of
Beecher's sermons, but will cheerfully en
dure the penalty annexed to the propaga
tion of heresy, if it be heresy, and give it
the farthest reach of our circulation:
"This , view interprets, too, what is
raeanfc by being clothed with another's
righteousness.' Oh, woe is you,' if this
sweet thought shall not preach of father
and mother to you. I am clothed with my
mother's righteousness to this hour, al
though she died when I was yet an infan t.
My memory of her is as of some' faint
cloud, far in the horizon. But though
my memory of her form has so faded,
during the lapse of many years, yet the
consciousness of her goodness, her serene
wisdom, her pure; disinterested nature,
and ner oevoieu love to me, anu my
brothers and my sisters, has gone with
me all my life long. ' I feel conscious that
the effect of her nature on mine was to
enrich me. Among the things that I es
teem, and among the things that I wear
in title, nothing is so dear to me as the
remembrance that I am a child of my
mother. And. the very name I have is
not so dear to me because I have lived
in it, and tilled it xonie way, as because it
was given to me by my mother, and was
solemnized by the sign and svmbol of
baptism, aud was mentioned in the house
By all the fondness I have for my
mother; by the regrets, ten thousand times
which I nave telt, that she aid
not walk with us longer in this world; by
the salutary influence which I am con
scious that my memory of her has had
upon me; by the feeling which I have had
a thousand times in temptation, that she
beheld me, that she restrained me; that her
heart was yet with me, sorrowing and re-
joiexng, as i sorrowea ana rejoicea oy
even these fragments oi experience, x

And that wnicn i nave nau in mis amau
measure from my mother, has been ful
filled lo me in more glorious measure by
my other parent, who was my father when
I was a child, and to whom I am father
now that he is a oiiild.
I should be sorry for any one that did
not know what such a relationship was,
through father or mother, or some one that
stood to him in the place of father or
mother thai did not know what it was to
iave the goodness and power of others
TintfEFre'd-'io 1iitfi." And when I apeak
of being clothed with the righteousness o
Christ, I banish all idea of going to a
wardrobe and getting a garment in the
form of some Christ-like virtue, and
throwing it over a human being. I put
away all notion of imputation like that of
taking out the heart ot one man and put
ting it into another man. 1 do not for an

The Public Works The Proposed

The day and the hour fixed by the fa

Public Works of the State to ihe hiuhest
and best bidder, having arrived, the Presi

at half past 3 P. M., this day, took
his stand at the South portico of the State

the different divisions, in accoidance Willi
the terms of the law and the conditions
prescribed in the publio notice issued by
the Board. Uuite a numDer oi -musa

for any portion of the works, nor were any

Thus has exploded another grand hum

How Indians .Hade Stone Arrow
The heads of the Indian arrows, spears,
javelins, Ssc, often found in many parts of
our continent, have been admired, but the
process of forming them conjectured.
The Hon. Caleb Lyon, on a r.ecent visit to
California, met wilh a party of Shasta In
dians, and ascertained that they still used
these weapons, which in most tribes have
been succeeded by rifles, or at least by
iron pointed arrows and sneers. He found
a man who could manufacture tbem, and
saw him at work at all parts of the process.
The description which Lyon wrote and
communicated to the American EthnoWU

The Shasta Indian seated hiraselt upon
the floor, and laying the stone anvil upon
his knee, which was of compact, talcose
slate, with one blow of bis agate chisel he
eparated the obsidian pebble into two
parts, then giving another blow to the
fractured side he split off a'slab some
fourth of an inch in thickness. Holding
the piece against ihe anvil with the thumb
aud finger of the left hand, he commenced
series of continuous blows, every one
of which (Shipped off fragments of the brit
tle substance. It gradually assumed tne re
quired shape. Alter finishing the blaze
of the arrow-head (the whole being only
little over an inch in length ) he began
striking gentler blows, every one of which
1 expected would break it into pieces.
Yet such was their application, his skill
and dexterity, that in little over an hour
he produced a peifect cbsidian arrow-head.
I then requsted bim to carve me one
from the remains of a broken porter bottlt-,
which after two failures, he succeeded in
doing. He gave as a reason of his ill suc
cess, he did not understand the grain of
the glass. No sculptor ever handled a
chiBel with greater precision or more care
fully measured the weight and etlect ol
each blow, than this ingenious Indian, for
even among them, arrow-making is a dis
tinct trade or prolession, which many at
tempted, but in which few attain excel
lence. He understood the capacity of the
material he wrought, and before striking
the first blow, by surveying the pebble,
he could judge of its availability as well as
the sculptor judges of the perfectness of a
block of Parian. In a moment, all that I

and speculative antiquarians of hardening

they stripped the infants, changed their

'Let Us All be Friends.
No sort of quarreling pays. It is al
ways more profitable to have the good will
nu the good opinion of any man than to
count him an enemy. The humblest man ,..
has some influence, and it is better lo have
that on our side than against us, If we -
quarrel with one who ennnot himself injure
us, he may have relatives or friends whose
good word might one day be useful. Or,
t be is such an outsider as to have neither
friend, relative or influence, it seems like v
a small business to quarrel with so forlorn
an individual. Amiability is so lovely a
virtue' that men instinctively admire its .
tortunale possessor, and when he cornea in
contact wiih a cross-grained, quarrelsome
ndividu.il, his own good nature shines
more brightly by reason, of the contrast.
We may safely promise largely in
creased enjoyment to bim who becomes
reconciled to an old foe. It is not wise to
nurse a quarrel and keep it warm by
brooding over real or imaginary injuries.
And the road to peace is very plain and
straight; if we have been hasty, or unkind,
or inconsiderate, there is nothing so manly
and honorable as a prompt acknowledg
ment of our fault or folly, and none but a
brute will refuse proffered reconciliation.
On the other hand, if we have been in
jured, let us remember that we also need
pardon for many offenses, and we also
need grace to ask that pardon, and we will
hnd il hard to withhold our forgiveness.

"Morning and night, sir."

I do; indeed I do;" replied Eriu.
