Fur tlir- hrr. jmt departed,
The noble Kik ! long live his name!
The gentle, linn-hearied.
Emblazm his name on the walls of fame.
Speak it in hall an. I cot.
His deeds reheare, in glowing rerse,

Let a n uion weep and its vicils keep
O'er the dnt of the honored K,
From the icy North let a wail come forth.
For the one thus early slain
Who p-rile.l life 'raid the ansry strife
Oi' I'olar storms and snfiws,
To seek for one, who, alas ! had sone
To his loiij, Ions;, last repose.
Let Scince m .urn for him now home
To Ihe dark, deep, lonely tomb.
Who'll no in ire weave with -tho'is that breathe'
Strange lore from land-, unknown.
But, his race here rim. the coal he has won.
Earth's laurels cast meekly a-ide,
To Hmi the onre Crucified.

Be Kind to Tour Wife.
Be kiud to your wife. Th'uk bow, in
the first blu-h of maiden beauty, she turn
ed aside from the haunts of pleasure, aud
the caress of fond parents, and brothers,
aud sisters, to follow your fortunes thro'
the world ! Think with what blended hope
an l agony you followed her from place to
place, watching her every look and pou
deriug the meiuiii of her most careless
tones, until, wou by your imp rlutiity,siio
placed her hand t-o trust fully iu yours,
auJ said, "I am all your own Think of
the cares, and anxieties aud physical suf
ferings she has iucurrd f.r you ! and do
not desett her now, wheu her clietk is fa
ded, her step has lost its elasticity, and she
its an uuc itnpiainin watcher over your
best interests, a self-incarcerated prisoner
iu her owu home.
Merrily the music sounds, ynung feet
trip lightly in the nnzy dioce, and joyous
laughter ri'igs along the walls; but is not
there. The curtaiu rises, and the far
famed artiste eomes forth to charm the
listeniug crofd with her melodious son"
but she is not there. The orator arises
before his rapt audience, hi rich, deep
tooes of eloquence floating away along tho
crowded passages, and curling upwards as
a voice of incense to the vaulted roof but
she is not there. Art opens her new stores
and displays her wonderful creations eti
the glowing canvas and in the speaking
bust your wife is a lover of the chaste
and beautiful, but she is not there. Lit
erature presents new leaves, from the fas
cinating pens of genius the wife aud mo
ther has but little tiuii to retd.
No! there she lingers at horns, a God
commissi u'd watcher over helpless child
ren ; singing the babe to sleep, bendiug to
catch the lisping voice of those dear ones
who havo a thousaud imaginary wauts, en
couraging tho quiet, and aoothiug the fret
ful. She is wnary, but does not complain;
her tettples thrub, but she does not heed
their throbbing, as ever and anon she turns
a wishful glance towards the door, fur she
expects her husbaud.
She exprcts ju ; and her whole world
of bappiuess will be there when you arrive.

indifference? Will you utter a hasty word
in r,r......... vr;ii :. i

a frown on your countenace, or complain of
the burdens you are called to bear ? Will
you thoughtlessly remind her of her faded
beauty, or mauifest surprise at her ienor-

eluded by her peculiar duties ? Will vou

Mr. Buehanau glorifies the ready and
implicit submission of the minority iu the
late contest to tue ueciarua win oi iuc
People, expressed through the forms of
the Constitution. Does he not know that
the praise he so justly bestows on the
A. publicans involves the deepest reproach
to his oif j,'irtiinK, who so frequently
and widely proclaimed in the late cauvass
that they wuu!d not submit if defeated
that Fremont's election would be the sig- :
nal for resistance and disunion ? Does he
not kuow that he owes thousands of his
votes to the fears of couvulsion aud dis
ruption thus shamefully excited in the
breasts uf the timid aud selfish ?
Having cites! his own election as a proof
that the People are fit for self-government,
Mr. Buchanan proceeds to deduce there- ;
from that every community should decide
for it.elf whether to legalize or forbid
Human Slavery. e do uot perceive the
lcititiiuacy of tUis conclusion. If it be

Mr. Buchanan tells us that Congress is

slavery, by Congressional interference.

The innocence with which our new

respecting Slavery, is refreshing. The

of the case. He argued that Congress academy of music, and a gallery of paint

to the inherent lovi fur the Constitution
and the t uion, which still aiiiiui.tes tht

ask their lowertui support in kus

o any nation, llaviu' ueuo mined not to

have uo Luolr.e to intiueuee my conduct
iu administering the Goverumeut, except
the desire, ably aud faithla! to serve tuy
country, and to live in the ratetul tnctuo
ry of my countrymen. We have r ecently
passed through a Presidential contest iu
which the pao.ioi.s of our te.low citizens
were excited to the highest decree by
questiiitis of deep and vital iuipurtai.i:e.
J4-.1 when the peojde proclaiuid iheir
will, the tempest at ouce stihuided, and all
was calm. The voice of the majority,
speaking in the manner prescribed by tlie
Constitution, was heard, uud instant sub
mission followed. Our own country could
alone have exhibited so grand aud sinking
a spectacle of the capacity of man for self,
troverumeitt. hat a happy conception,
then, was it for Congress to apply this
rule, " that the will of the majority sh.iil
govern," to the settlement ut tlie question
of domestic slavery iu the territories.
Congress is neither to legislate sl iv. ry
into uny territory, nor to exeiuue il :ucre
lrom,' but to leave the jopie th.-rc d per
fect! tree to form and regulate l!.ir .1 j
meslic institutions iu their own wav, auh
jeel only to the Constitution ol the L luted
States. As a natural cons ioe.ee, Con
gress Las also prescribed that wh n tie;
Territory ot Kansas shall be admitted as a
Slate il shall be received into the L uiou
Milk or without slavery, as their own Con
stitution may prescribe at the tiiueut tiieir
admission. A didVrent opinion Las aris-a
in regard to the poiut ot time when tlie
peopie of a territory slialf decide the ques
lion lor themselves. This is happily a mat
ter of but little practical importance ; b;
sides, il is a judicial question, which le
g.t.mitely be.ungs to the Supreme Court uf
lhe I uiled Slates, before hom it is Duw
ieiiding, and will, it is understood, be
speedily and finally settled. To their dt
cision, iu commou with all good cituurus,
- . - . . . .
may be, though it has ever been niv indi
vidual opinion that, under the Nebraska
Kansas act, the appropriate period will be
when the number ot actual reaidenu iu
the Territory shall justify tbe formation of
a constitution with a view to its admission
as a S: ate into the I'nion. Be this as it
may, it is the imperative and indispensa
ble duty of the dovernment of the I i.it.d
States, to secure to tvery resideut intiaot
taul the free and independent expression
of his opinion by his vote. The sacred
right of each individual must be preserved.
r his being accomplished, nothing caa bo
hurer than to leave the people of a Terri
tory flee from all foreign iulederence. W
decile their owu destiny for iheuiseiv rs ,
sal.jecl only to lhe Coustitutiou of tl.e
Utiited Mates. The whole TerTit..ri:.l
question bein. thus settled upon the pi-ia-iiple
ot p ipuiar sovereignly a priaeile
as ancient as free government itseii ev
erything of a practical nature has b. -ti
decided. No ether question remains fur
adjuslmeut, because all agree that, under
the Constitution, slavery iu the Stales is
bevond the reach of any human power ex
cept that of the respective Males themselves
wherein it exists. May we not, then, hop,
inat the long agilatinu on this suhjeet is
approaching its end, and that the gro-gi-apLieal
parties to which it has given
birth so much dreaded by the Father uf
bis country will speedily becc n.e e.xtii.i
Most happy will it be for the country when

has scarcely known any intermission for
