MAN AND MIND.
BY S. D. SIBBET.
Upan the wall of the dasa-room of Logic and
Uetaphyrics, in the University of Edinburgh, the
late sir William Hamilton has left the following
words : " There is nothing great on earth but
man ; there is nothing great in man bat mind."
" There's nothing great on earth but man ;
There's nothing great in man but mind."
Brave words, Sir William. Let as scan
Them well, their hidden wealth to and.
Creation's work was not complete)
Till man appeared to crown its flan.
To him was given regal seat
To him the royal title man.
To him was given reason, will.
And power to gravp the mighty thought,
Which worked so potent, yet so still :
lly which the universa waa wrought.
How great, how wonderful is mind !
How absolute its sonree must be.
Space limits have no power to bind
The all-pervading Deity.
In Him alone all power resides ;
From Him alone all foroes flow.
The mote that on a snnbeam rides.
Alike with worlds those forces show.
An all-embracing space to nil,
With rounded worlds for mind to scan,
Bath pleased the great Creative will.
Bat greater far than these is man.
Time most endure, and space extend
Their limits can be nowhere found ;
Hours, days and years must ever blend,
And space reach on without a bound.
man, with finite powers, embrace
The infinite involved in time;
Or measure endless, roaching space
With what at most is finite line?
In language low, but deep and clear,
A voice within replies, Not so ;
Great is the mind within its sphere,
Beyond it has no power to go."
Within its sphere Its sweep is wide.
Far-reaching and sublimely grand ;
The universe few secrets hide
Bat what comes forth at ita command.
What mind has done shows large and grand ;
- What mind can do we yet shall know ;
Its limits must throagh time expand,
And ever mast its knowledge grow.
I would not limit or confine
The reach and grasp of thought. Ah, no !
But God has fixed a bounding line
What lies beyond we cannot know.
What lies this side is ours to scan ;
And reason's power doth most appear,
When laws of nature, mind and man
mploy their highest efforts here,

- How melancholy they looked, those
emblems of parting and adienx. Not
even the merry laughter of the two or
three young girls, who were gathered
around a stalwart, handsome fellow of
about twenty-five, could entirely banish
an impalpable something of sadness
from the scene. Cousin Jack was going
away, tne general mischiQi-mak:er, tor
ment and tease of the whole family, and

minutes, ana aecmrea, petasnly, that the
type of the evening paper was a terrible
trial to ola eyes.
"Aye, you may laugh, girls," said
Jack, applying Himself vigorously to the
refractory lock of a portmanteau. " Per
haps you may one day discover tnat it
isn't such a laughing matter. Think of
the loss the family is going to sustain in

"I'm not at all certain of that, Miss
Alanine," said Jack, decisively. " If-1
succeed in finding a location to suit me,
I shall probably decide to settle perma
nently at Thornville and turn landed
proprietor on my own account."
" Only imagine our Jack a gentleman
of property !" laughed Minnie, appealing
to her sisters.
"I don't see anything so very ridicu
lous in the idea," remarked the young
man, rather piqued at the amusement of
his relatives. "At all events, there's one
incalculable advantage that will result
from my departure."
" And what is that, Mr. Oracle ?"
" The fact that you've played your
last freak on me, you tormenting little
" Don't be so certain of that, Cousin
Jack 1" said Minnie, shaking her long
curis. - " What will you venture I don't

little pieses of impertinence ; but pray
don't imagine they arc forgotten, sir I"
" My diamond sleeve buttons to your
coral necklace that you don't impose on
me within the next three months, Min
nie," said Jack gaily.
"Done I" said Minnie. " Girls, you all
hear the wager, don't you? I always cov
eted Jack's diamonds."
" But you won't have them, madem
oiselle I - How dork it is getting in this
cavernous old hall. Shall I ring for
lights, Uncle Chester? and, by the way,
have you written that letter Of introduc
tion to Mr. Thome?"
, "All in good time, my boy all in
good time," said the old gentleman, de
positing his his huge, silver-bound spec
tacles in their case. " Tou young men
are all in such a desperate hurry. Tell
Betsy to carry a lamp into the library,
girls. And Minnie, where is my gold
pen ! I won't be very long about it,
and then we will have a nice long even
ing to gossip over Jack's prospects."
While Mr. Chester sot in his cosy, red
curtained library, revising the letter
which he had been writing to his old
friend Jabez Thome, of Thornville, to
the effect that his nephew, John Lacy,
was in search of an eligible piece of
land, and wished to settle down in that
vicinity, and requested Mr. Thome's aid
ana co-operation in the selection of the
same, Minnie opened the door.
" Papa, there .is some one down stairs
who wishes to see you immediately for a
"Very annoying!" said the old gen
tleman, " just as I was finishing this let
ter of Jack's. However, I can seal it
afterward. Minnie, suppose you glance
over it and dot the i's and cross the t's ;
I'm not so much of a penman as I used
And old Mr. Chester pushed back his
chair and rose from the antique table to
attend the claims of his urgent guest.
Olive Chester was brushing out the
heavy braids of her luxuriant hair be
fore the dressing-mirror of her own
apartment, two hours later, when Minnie
ran in, with a countenance comically di
vided between dismay and delight

"I've won the diamond Jeeve-buttons,
Olive ! but oh ! I didn't mean to. What
would papa say if he only knew it and
Cousin Jack, too ?"
"Sit down, you wild little elf," said
Olive, gently forcing her sister into a
chair, "and explain this mysterious
riddle !" J
" Well, you know papa left mo to look
over his letter to Mr. Thome and he
was detained longer thau he expected
almost an hour in fact, and I couldn't
help amusing myself by writing a parody
on the letter." J
. "A parody?"
" les you remember somebody was
telling us what a beautiful daughter Mr.
Thome had so I wrote that Jack was in
searce of a wife, and had heard of Miss
Thome, and wanted to settle in life, and
all that sort of thing. In short, wher
ever papa had written land, or estate, I
wrote wife ! Wasn't it fun ?" ejaculated
the little maiden, her eyes dancing with
diablerie. But you know I never once
thought of sending the letter; I only
wonted to read it to Jack when I went
down stairs. Well, I signed it, with a
great flourish of trumpets, and just then
wno should come in but papa and the
stranger. Of course I fled and when
I came back the letter was sealed and
eafe in Jack's pocket-book, and Olive, it
was the wrong letter."
" It was rather a dim light and pa
pa's eyes are not as keen as they were
wont to be, and my impertinent missive
was gone, while the real bona fide letter
lay there, amongst a heap of discarded
papers. And I hadn't courage to con
fess my misdemeanors, papa is so op
posed to my innocent little jokes and
Jack is off with that indescribable letter!
I shall certainly win the sleeve buttons,
Olive, bnt what a tornado there will .be,
when my mischief leaks-out."
And Minnie looked so bewitchingly
lovely in her alternate paroxysms of ter
ror and laughter, that Olive, grave old
sister though she was, had not the heart
to lecture her as roundly as she de
served. The crimson sunset of the very next
evening shone radiantly into the special
sanctum of the worthy old Jabez Thome,
of Thornville, Justice of the Peace, and
chairman of all the agricultural meetings
for ten miles around. It was no scholarly-looking
library, like that of his
ancient comrade Chester, but a square,
light room, with four uncurtained win
dows, and ornamented with numerous
black-framed engravings of prize cattle
and giant turnips. He was seated in a
feather-cushioned arm-chair, looking
over the files of an agricultural journal,
to find some coveted information on the
subject of " phosphates" and "super
phosphates," when a servant brought
him a card and a letter.
" The gentleman is in the parlor sir."
Jabez Thome laid aside his newspaper.
glanced at the card, which bore the simple
inscription, " John Lieey then at the

What does the rascal mean?" ejaculated
Jabez, the fringe of gray hair that sur
rounded his bald head standing abso
lutely erect with indignation. "I'll

And Jabes Thome thrust the letter in
to his pocket and strode determinedly
into the parlor, where young Lacy was
quietly awaiting his appearance. . The
old gentleman a face was scarlet with em
barrassment; he was half disposed to be
angry with his guest's cool self-pos

And before Lacy could express his
surprise his choleric host had banged the
door behind him and disappeared.
Mary Thome's astonishment was even
greater than her father's had been. She
was attired in white muslin, with a bou
quet of crimson moss rose-buds in her
hair, for some rural party or picnic, and
at first absolutely refused to enter the

one of my oldest friends, and the young
man is really a very fine looking fellow,
and rich into the bargain. Go in and
talk to him a little while, there's a good
girl ! I can't stand it a minute longer."
And old Jabez wiped his forehead, on
which the perspiration was standing in
big beads. And Mary burst into an un
controllable fit of laughter.
"The whole affair is so ridiculous !"
But she adjusted the moss roses never
theless and tripped demurely into the

in style to the hirsute adornments of the
young gentlemen at Thornville.
Mr. Lacy looked up at the ceiling and
down at the carpet, and wonderod what
the consequences would be were he to
escape incontinently through the open
French window. That would not be a
very dignified proceeding, however, so
he resigned himself to destiny by mak
ing some original remark on the weather.
It had the much desired effect of break
ing the ice, however, and he was agreea
bly surprised with the arch vivacity of
Miss Thome. Only once did she seem
confused ; it was when she had been de
scribing a fine grove of cedars that be

the same time that he had contemplated

Mary grew scarlet, and murmured
some sentence or other. The conversa

could perceive no visible cause, rose to

All the moss roses in Mr. Thome's
rose-garden could not have rivalled the
hot glow on Mary's cheeks as she fled
out ot the room without a word ot re

Jack, slowly drawing on his gloves and
walking down the broad garden path.
" But she is an uncommonly pretty girl

Old Jabez Thome was busily engaged

scissors, tnat morning, when young
Lacy sprang over the hedge and saluted
him with a buoyant " srood-mominc."

have been making nrovision for their

trading had settled mainly in' the October
option. The receipts of all kinds of grain
except corn are increasing, while the shipments
were somewhat larger, especially of com. The
bulk of shipments of the latter were of corn
reoeived on matured or maturing contracts oi
options and forwarded by the receiver. The
demand from August Bborta forced wheat up
to J1.17K early in the week, but the market
closed easier under less activity in the de
mand. Oats were fairly active on speculative
account. Bye and barley quiet.

Wonders of Colorado.
The reports of the Hayden survey in
dicate the most flattering results in the
way of discovering ancient rains and a
new domain of canons and mountain
landscape never before visited by ei
plorers. The discoveries promise much
in the way of further geographical
knowledge of the great West, and, in
the discovery of ancient ruins, will add
many important chapters to our early
history. Prof. Hayden, in a letter to
the Interior Department, in speaking of
these discoveries by Mr. Gannett' a divis
ion of his party, says this subject will
be thoroughly investigated, and sketches,
photographs, and other material will be
secured for a most valuable report The
subject is one which is attracting the at
tention of the whole civilized world.
Mr. Gardner, one of Prof. Hayden's
principal assistants, in one of his letters,
after describing a dry and heated march
of 18 miles without water, under a broil
ing sun, over a bare, ashen soil, in which
the mules sunk to their fetlocks, he says:
" Next morning we turned to seek a ford
of the Grand river, up over which Lieut.
Gunnison had passed, with wagons, in
1855, the deeply-cut wheel-ruts being
still visible. Far off over the plain
came . a small ,. cloud of dust, in
whose center the glasses showed a gal
loping horseman. It was Mr. Gunner,
the topographer, surveying this district
He came to guide the supply-train, and
to show ns a shorter way to the the Sierra
La Sal, which avoids the desert valley of
the Grand. A remarkable and hitherto
unknown canon, 2,000 to 3,000 feet
deep, and 40 miles long, is cut from the
Gunnison to the Dolores river. Through
it leads an Indian trail. By the timely
arrival of Mr. Gannet much suflering
from the desert heat was saved. In ex
change for this we have ridden throngh
one of the grandest and most beautiful
canons in Colorado." This canon is
thus more minutely described: "But
the strangest topographical feature that
I have ever seen is a cross canon, con
necting the Gunnison with the Dolores.
It is about 30 miles lout?, with a straitrht
course, about 30 degrees north of east
and soutn 01 west. It enters the Gun
nison about six miles above its month,
in the lap of the Uraweep canon. The
height of the walls increases quite reg
ularly with the slope of the rrreat Bov-
back, until at its summit they reach a
height of 3,000 feet The walls ore, for
most of its course, granite, in vertical
cliffs, 1,500 to 2,000 feet hiirh. canoed by
layers of red sandstone. Exoept near.
cue unnmson river, the valley is nearly
a mile wide, grassy, and with a stream
on each side of the divide. The divide
is a mere prairie swell. The slope is
much greater on the east than on the
west side. Whether this canon be the
ancient course of the Dolores, flowing to
the Gunnison, future exploration will
determine. There is no sign of disrup
tion anywhere about. It is evidently"a
canon made by erosion. Mr.' Atkinson,
of the party, lias made careful notes of
tins canon, and will be prepared to moke
a detailed map of it, on a scale of one
mile to the inch."
A new steam-engine for street rail
roads has been introduced in London'
It is entirely inclosed, and presents the.
appearance of a small street-car. The
advantages claimed for this new pattern
are a saving of 300 per annum in the
working expences of each car: an in
crease of speed when desirable; a more
perfect control for stopping and starting
uinn at present; and tnat at each termi
nus it can be disconnected and brought
to tue irent 01 the car in less time than
that taken by horses. The trials were
considered very satisfactory. Tins en

of Chronic, Scrofulous or Syphilitic diseases, however
slow may be the cure " feel better," and find their gen
eral health improving, their flesh and weight inereaatna
or even keeping its own, it is a sure sign that the cure is
Erogreasing. La these diseases the patient either gets
etter or worse tho virus of the disease is not inactive ;
If not arrested and driven from the blood, it will spread

The great power of this remedy is In diseases that
threaten death as In Consumption of the Lungs and
Tuberculous Phthisis, Scrofula, Syphiloid Diseases,
Wasting, Degeneration, and Ulceration of the Kidneys.

with the painful operation of using these instruments),

eases of Leaeorrhea and Uterine diseases.
In tumors, nodes, hard lumps and syphiloid ulcers : fa
dropsy and venereal sore throat, ulcers, and in tubercle
of the lungs; in gout, dyspepsia, rhbomatism, rickets
in mercurial deposits it is in these terrible forms a
disease, where the human body has become a comples
wreck, and where every hour of existence is torture.,
wherein this great remedy challenges the aatonishmen
and admiration of the sick. It is in such cases, when
all the pleasures of existence appear cut off from the
unfortunate, and by its wonderful, almost supernatural
agency, it restores the hopeless to a new life and new
existence where this great remedy stands alone in its
might and power.
