O my thoughts tire away where my infancy flew,
Near the creen mossy bank where the butter
Where the bright silver fountain eternally played
First laughing in sunshine then singing in shade.
There oft in my childhood I've wandered in play,
Flinging up the cool drops in a shower nf spray,
Till my small naked feet were al! bathed in
As I played on the bank where the btitter-cnps
How softly that green bank sloped down from
To the spot where the fountain grew suddenly
How cool was the shadow the long branches gave,
As they hung from the willow and dipped in the
And then each pa!e lilly that slept on the stream
Rose nnd fell with the wave ns if stirred by a
W title n.y home m.U the v.ne-leaves rose sou on j
As I played on the bank where the butter-cups
The beautiful things how I watched them unfold,
Till they lifted their delicate vases of gold,
O, never a spot since those days have I seen
With leaves of sin h freshness, and flowers ol such
How glad was my spirit '. for then there was
To burthen its wings, save somebeatitiful thought
Breaking up from its depths with each w ild wind
O'er the green mossy bank where the butter
The paths 1 have trod I would quickly retrace,
Could 1 win ba.'k the gladness that looked from
As 1 coohd my warm lip in the fountain I love,
With a spirit ns pure as the wing of a dove,
CoM 1 ndor again where my forehead was
-jVith the beauty that dwelt in my bosom un
And calm as a child, in the starlight and dew
Fall asleep on the bank where the butter-cups !

him ample amends, but his papers wero not re
turned. When Mr. Shannon went out, as Min
ister, he was warned that lie would be robbed
between Vera Cruz und Mexico, and advised to
t.ko no money witli him, but lo procure a bill,
as can always be done, at Vera Crur., on Mexi
co. Hi' did so, ii ml was duly robbed. The Go
vernment offered its condolence, and tendered
indemnification ton lire amount.
When Mr. Cushing passed through Mexico,
on his return from ('hum, he was stopped by a
troop of half military, hull sivnge looking fel

and he was then told to proceed.
Commodore Porter, when they attempt pd to

horse upon the captain of the troopand shot him
dead, whereupon the rest took to flight.

of their largo losses, and the Government,
though well knowing that the Iom wae trifling,
have restored the sum claimed. If the Go

of tunc, of snlllcient power, not only to force the

vated many feet above) the bank of the river.
This saved the expense of the pump, wlvch is

SiarxMt Tradition Among the Semi
nole Indians there is a singular tradition, regar
ding Ihe white man's origin and superiority.
They say that when the Great Spirit made, he
also made three men, all of whom were fair
complexioned ; and that after making them, he
led them to the margin of a small l ike und bade
them lay therein and wash. One immediately
obeyed, and came from the wu'er purer and fair
er than beforo ; the second hesitated a moment,
during which tune the water, agitated by the
first, had becn.ue slightly mudded, ami when ho
had bathed lie came up copper-colored ; the
third did not leap into till the water became
black with mud, and he came out w ith his own
color. Then thn Great Spirit laid before them
three packages of bark, and madelhem choose
and out nf pity for his misfortune in color, gave
tho black man the first choice, lie too!; each
of tho packages and having felt the weight
chose the heaviest ; the copper-colored one then
chose the second heaviest, ami tho white inun
the lightest. When the packagea were open
ed, the first waa found, lo contain spades, hoe
and all the iinp'.oiueuta of lubor ; the second en
wrapped htint .ng and fishing and warlike appa
ratus ; the third guve to the white man, pens,
ink und paper the engine of the mind the
ineana of mutual mental improvement the so
cial link of humanity the foundation of the
white man' superiority.
It won't do for chap lu imagine girl is in

Dr. NoTT. We hive been looking over
with great interest, "Counsels to Young men,"
by the venerable Dr. Nott, published by the
Harpers; n small volume with which every
youth ought to be familiar. The following sen
timents cannot fail to commend themselves to
the conscience and heart :
Truth and justice are immutable nnd eternal
principles always sacred nnd always applica
ble. In no circumstances, however urgent, no
crisis, however awful, can there be an oburra
tion from the one, or a dereliction of the
other, without sin. With respect to everything
else, be nccomrnoihiting ; but here, be unyield
ing Bnd invincible. Rather carry your integri
ty to the dungeon or tho sraflobl, than receive
in exchange for it liberty nnd life. Should you
ever be calhd to make your selection between
these extremes, do not hesitate. It is belter
prematurely to be sent to heaven in honor, than,
having lingered on the earth, tit last lo sink to
hell in infamy. In every situation, a dishonest
man is detestable, and a liar is still more so.
Truth is one of the fairest attributes of the
Deity. It is the b military which separates
vice from virtue ; the line which divides hea
ven from hell. It is. the chain w Inch binds the
man ol integrity to the throne of God ; and, like
the God to w hose throne it hinds him, till this
chain is dissolved his word may be r lied on.
Suspended on this, vour property, yrur reputa
tion, your life are sale. Ilu against the inalicp
nf a liar there is no security. He can bo bound
by nothing. His soul is already repulsed to an
immeasurable distance from that Divinity,' a
sense of whose presence is the security of vir
tue. He has sundered the last ofthnse moral
ligaments which bind a mortal to his duty. And
having done so, through the extended region of
fraud and falsehood, without n bond to check or
limit to confine him, he ranges the dreaded
enemy of innocence whose lips pollute even
truth itself ns it passes thro' them, nnd w bosp
breath blasts, and soils, and poisons as it touches.

leave home for a day or two, but the house must
be turned into a tavern ; a tavern ! a pot-
Iioure ! Yes, I thought you were very anxious
that I should go ; tho't you wanted to get rid
of me for something, or you would not have in
sisted on my slaying at dear mother's nil night.
You were afraid I should get cold coming home,
were you ! Oil, jes, you can be very tender.
you can, Mr. Caudle, when it suits your own !
purpose. Yea ! and the world thinks what a '
good husband you a'c ! I only wish the world I
knew you as well ns I do, that's all ; but it shall,
some day, I'm determined.
"I'm sure the house will not lie sweet for a
month. All the rtirtains are poisoned with
smoke; and what's more, the fi'thiest smoke I
ever knew. Takr 'cm down thin ! Yes, it's
all very well for you to say, take 'em down ;
but they were only cleaned and put up a month
ago ; but a careful wile's lost upon you, Mr.
Caudle. You onoht to have married somebody
who'd have let your house go to wreck nnd ru
in, as I will for the future. People who don't
cnip for their families are better than those who
do ; I've long found out that.
"And w hat a condition tiie carpet's in !
They've taken five poundsotit of it, if a farthing,
with their filthy hoots, nnd I don't know whnt
besides. And then the smoke in the hearth-
rug, nnd a Inrje cinder hole burnt in it! I ne-
versaw such a house in my lite ! If you want
to have a few friends, why could'nt you invile
'em when your wife's at home, like any other
man 1 not have 'em sneaking in, like a set of
housebreakers, directly a woman turns her buck.
They must h pretty jentlemen, they must ;
mean fellows, that are afraid to face a woman!

If you don't aller, Mr. Caudle, you'll soon have
no house to I e mas'er of. A whole loaf of su
gar did I leave in the cupboard, and now there
isn't as much as would fill a tea spoon. Do you
suppose I'm to find the sugar for punch for fifty
men ! What do you say ! Thf-re wasn't fifty )
That's no matter : the more shame for 'em, sir.
I'm sure ilrey drank enough for filly. Do you sup

Vaccination. A late number of the I on
don Lancet has the following on the subject of
''Phe general conclusions drawn by Dr. pit
Z'ns, of Stockholm, from his observations ii
Sweden are these : The protection afforded bv
vaccination, from tho close of the second year
of life, against the contagion of the variolous
poison, usually Insts unimpaired to the end of
the thirteenth year or so , after this periol it
begins to lose itsrfl.'ct, and grodually becomes
more and more uncertain to the twentieth or
twenty-first year of life. Tor the next four or
five years the disposition to the small pox seem
almost to hnve recovered its originnl int-'gr ty ;
and this state of liability continues unimpaired
up to Ihe see of forty years or so. At about
this epoch of life it begins to approach nearer
and nearer to the limits of existence which it
reaches, in the majority of cases, about th fif

of course would have died, without some extra

all took nt both ends nnd grew well, excepting
one, which took only at tho bottom, and thus
forming a little tree by itself. The r-cions nro

part where they first wear out, in order to lesson
the friction of the carpets ngainst the boards b

Poison, for iNsttTs It is perhaps not gen
erally known that black pivper (no red) is a
poison for many insects. The following sim
ple mixture is the best destroyer for the com
mon house fly : "Tuke equal portions of'flnrj
black pepper, fresh ground, and suar, say e-

you will keep dawn your flies. One advantage
over every other poison is that it injures no.
