FAITH AND DUTY.
BY NEAL BERNARD.
Something ever doth impress us
With a souse of right or wrong;
Something waltcth still to bless us,
As we journey life along;
Something view less whispers to us
Words of hope and promise sure;
Voices speak prophetic through us,
Of a life that shall endure.
There Is a silent, voiecles teacher,'
Striving with the human will;
i Unto each weak, earth-ixirn ere attiro
Wisdom's letters doth instill;
Heed them, better grow and wiser:
They will soften life' hot fray ;
Duty make your stern ndviser,
Aim to reach the perfect day.
Trust the hinh hopes that Impel us,
Ami inspire our linn belief
They uloiio can well foretell us,
Uuinau works how frail anil brief;
Trust the (iod that reigns above us, .
Faithful to his precepts be,
lie w ill gnidc. and guard, nnd love us,
Through a blest eternity.
Herd the heavenly aspirations
That imbue with hope the soul;
31a rk the glorious life-creations
Flow lug in without control; .
Sci in all things truth and beauty,
' Love nVrrlowhig from tlio skies; '
Exercising Faith and luty,
Earth Would bo a paradise.
BY NEAL BERNARD. Miscellaneous.
Eloquent Extract—The Union of
the Atlantic with the Pacific.
Tiik magnillcent project of uniting the
Atlantic Oe'eari With the Pnclllo, by rail
road connection, and of accomplishing in a
few hours ii journey across the breadth of
the continent of North America, which for
merly,, required months to effect, and of
causing the commerce of the East to flow
through tho gates of our principal cities, is
we'll calculated, although n utilitarian
scheme, to give the hue of poetry and ro
mance to the speculations of those w ho aro
engaged in forwarding- the great wttrk.
The idea Is so splendid ami great that even
our nuwt sober, and sedate statesmen, who
in general confine themselves to prosaic
facts and figures, will insensibly, in their
allusions to it, use the most oratorical and
splendid illustrations. When we contem
plate the advantages nnd results that would
flow from it, the changes that it would pro
duce in all the groat enterprises of life, it Is
not remarkable that it is a line theme for
forensic displays. The classic and eloquent
Keitt, a member of Congress from South
Carolina, in a late speech at Charleston, at
a railroad celebration, handled the subject
as ably and as beautifully aa we have ever
seen it done. He said :
"The march of tho States is on
ward and onward still nor can it
pause until tho sun is right over
our heads ; nor will ' tho edict of
Destiny he met until the people of
these regions are bidden to a mar
riage feast grander than any spread
on tho records of time. Tho Pa
cific, vexed by storms, and restless
upon his lonely, bachelor bfcd," for
unnoted centuries, has sobbed to
the rock-bound coast the story of
his baffled love ; but American ge
nius and American energy, like
carrier-pigeons, are now bearing
the sutor's gentle plea over, plain
and mountain, over forest and city,
arid they soon will carry back tho
pligh ted maiden's vow of the blush
ing Atlantic. - - ' ' .'
Much have you of the South and
"West already done, but much still
remains for you to do.. The lordly
Facific, like an awakened giant, is
stopping forth to demand and wel
come the bride he has already
wooed and. won, and it is for you
to solemnize, the magnificent lly
men of the oseans with a' chain of
iron ,Vibiesses.'( '.When you have
done .this, , you will have laid your
hands' upon the gates of the East,
aofl the long procession 'of. the
traded .will follow in ': your track
way ttf seize 'and hold the -' golden
keys,VThe;;.sIileiidjd ; commerce,
which' erstwhile, enriched Thebes
and, fttlmyrdj :Venice, . Genoa ,:and
Holland, ind which now plants the
grtfat commercial nervo of tho
world on the Exchange in London,
will 'comb to. you a bidden guest.
Tho use of tropical productions
is fast becoming a test of civiliza
tion, nnd they arc rapidly elaborat
ing themselves into tho very ele
ments of national greatness nnd
power. Great Britain sees thin,
and hence she is pushing her con
quests through ruined India, and
treading over shattered thrones, to
lay her hands upon tho sources of
tropical wealth. Trance, too, has
planted her Lillics upon tlio soil of
Africa, and, stretching on to tho
accomplishment of the samo end,
is marching over liery deserts ami
through the smoke of burning
Arab villages. Nor does this great
law of modem progress and civili
zation stop ith these two powers.
Nicholas, of Russia,' when in his
midsoar of ambition when stretch
ing to tho very sun, liko . -
'Tlio feathered king, '
On balanced wing,"'- . , ,
ho was struck down by. tho shaft of
death, was gilding up tho loins of
his huge empire, for ; a . mighty
spring through jho gateway of VhW
na, upon the possessions of Great
Britain in ,tho East,' in order to
grapplo. those -,vast regions to his
already colossal empire, and re
found his power and reyime upon
tho wealth and commerco of the
East. This great scheme precolates
through tho minds of the .rulers of
Russia. This race to tho tropics is
ours, too. God, geography and na
ture have combined to enablo us
to outstrip nil our rivals ' in this
high career of power and empire.
Marry-the Atlantic to tho Pacific, '
and obey the mandate of destiny,
and you will have your hands upon
tho necessities and luxuries of tho
world, while all tho arts and all tho
trades, and all the sciences, will
circlo in festive throngs around
you." . ;
A Good Rebuke.
Tiik talented editor of the PcorlaXation
al Democrat, handsomely rebukes a neigh
boring Abolition editor in the following ; .
"The Pantagraph, a disunion pa
per published in Blooniington,
anxiously enquires in regard to tho
President's Pence Proclamation:
'Does this Presidential Proclam
ation look to such a result? Aro
we not on tho brink of another
civil war?'" :
No, sir, We are not on the brink
of any such thing. The, coup de
tat that your party intend to mako
to get hold of tho Executivo power
ot the nation, will bo so .suddenly
squelched, that it cannot bo digni
fied with the name of insurrection.
We shall have no civil war, because
those who attempt to innugurato
it would hang as high as llaaman
before the emeuto was twenty-four
hours old." .
Taken Aback.
A handsome sleigh came dashing up to
a swell mansion one day last winter, in line
style, nnd, stopping, out sprang a sprucely
dressed little fellow, who might have seen
a dozen summers, but Who had the air of
one who labors under the impression that
his father is considerable his junior ia
years nnd experience; Accosting a passing
boy, probably a year or so older than him
self, he haughtily exclaimed : ,
' " Hero, boy, hold my horse 1"
Tho boy stepped up, and, look
ing at the animal, asked ;
" Can one boy hold him ?"
"Yes ;. certainly,".
".Well, hold him youjself, then,"
continued he, passing on, leaving
our hero quite taken aback.
Ah amusing dialogue lately occurred ia
one of the American camps between a pri
vate, who was' acting as sentinel near n
hospital, and a general. On the approach
of the latter, the former neglected to give
the accustomed salute. ' The general then
sharply asked :
"Who stands guard hero?" :
' "A' chap : about my size," an
swered the private. : "
General-Vhat aro your duties
here?" ;- ' 1 :
"To allow tho sick to como out,
and to keep the well in." ' :
" Call your corporal." !
" You won't catch me doing that.
I don't intend to stand here two
hours longer than usual to please
you.'? Tlio sentinel alluded hero
to a rule which gives corporals the
power when they are unnecessari
ly called byi sentinels, to punish
them by imposing ' on them two
hours' extrrt duty. '-if v - -

Displaying Their Proper Colors.
TnnXew Y ork Jinl'i mlmt, a n-llgious-politico
journal,, edited by tho notorious
Needier, In Its hist ksiie.vcry justly n llec-
iciiine principles ortlie opposition to the
Democracy when he said:
"The plain fact is, that a city
liko New York, with a population
iransienr, heterogeneous, unassim
ilated, not born on the soil, but em
igrants from all lands, not expect
ing or desiring to live hero perma
nently, but only so Ion r as business
constrains them, and with an im
mense and increasing amount of
profligacy in it, can not be govern
ed on tho purely democratic and
autonomous (self law-making) the
ory. It presents not n social sys
tem, for thero is no real system in
it but a vast and accidental hu
man agglomeration, to which tho
principles and laws ot self-government
have no proper application."
In these few lines is displayed
tho intenso hostility o popular
government, and free institutions
which has cvp'r been tho disgusting
characteristic of tho opposition,
which, uiu.or different names, have
fought tho Democracy of tho Uni
ted Statos ever, since Ibo sulnnl inn
of the Constitution. It is not al
ways frank enough to admit tho
fact, but tho views of its leaders
and its general policy have ever
been to take from tho manv llioir
rights and bestow them upon the
iow who aro to Do tno rulers while
the masses aro to bo rovrrnri1. Its
stanch adherence and advocacy of
l no propriety ol property qualifica
tions for voters, its friondsliin fur
centralized power, instead of its
ucing jocaiiy distributed its pro
posed exclusion from tho ballot-box
and citizenship of all nion who
were not born in tho nniintrv if
adherence to banks, tariffs, . and
corporations, with exclusive rights
and privileges not cranted fn i li
many its contempt and disregard

opposition to tho people of tho
Territories deciding tho character

conclusive that it is not friendly to

Was Burns Happy at Home?
Hut why not say that tlio thrco
years ho lived at Elliesland wore
all happy, as happiness goes in the
world ? His wilo never had an
hour's sickness, and was always
cheerful as day, one of thoso
"Sound, healthy children of the God of
neaven,: , ..,-.' ; , ,
whoso very presence is positivo,
pleasure,, whoso silent contented:
nes's with her lot inspires .comfort
into her husband's heart, when at
times oppressed with a mortal hea
viness that no words could lighten.
Burns says, with gloomy grandeur,
"Thero is a foggy atmosphoro na
tive to my soul in tho hour of care
which makes the dreary objects
seem larger tluin life." He who
suffers thus can not be relieved by
any appliances save thoso that
touch the heart the homelier the
more sanative and none so sure,
as a wife's affectionate ways, qui
etly moving abouT; the house affairs,
which, insignificant as they are in
themselves, aro felt to bo little
truthful realities that banish thoso
monstrous phantoms, showing them
to be but glooms and shadows.
Professor Wilson's Essays.
A NAxunALiST says : "Last sum
mer, while walking in my park, I
observed a green woodpecker
alight on the ground some fifty pa
ces before me, look round to see if
ho was observed, then De down and
simulate death by stretching put
motionless and hanging his tongue
out as far ns possible. He occa-,
sionally pulled it in his bill. Ho
had selected a placo near an ant
hill. ' Tho ants, thinking him dead,
would cover his tongue to devour
him : when it wais black with ants,
lie would swallow them and repeat
the trick: until fas maw could hold
no more." ,
