Once mora alone and desolate now forever.
In truth, the heart whose home was once in thine
Once more alone on Life's terrific river,
All human help exulting I resign.
Alone I brave the tempest and the terror,
Alone I guide my being's fragile bark,
And bless the Past with all it grief and error,
Since heaven still bends above my pathway dark.
At last, I taste the joy of self-reliance;
At last I reverence, calmly, my own soul;
At last, I glory in serene defiance
Of all the wrong that would my fate control.
Elastic bounds above the wavea of sorrow
The bark, wo's lightest breath could once o'erwhelm;
It turns triumphant to the radiant morrow
Faith at the mast and Courage at the belm.
Away! away, its pure sail softly swelling
With the glad gale, that springs to speed its flight,
The beauteous sunset of the Past foretelling
How rich ahall be the Future's morning light.
Too long it trusted Love, the treacherous pilot,
Who, lingering, lured it toward the whirlpool wild,
And, idly moored to many a flowery Wet,
Forgot the glorioua shore afar that smiled.
But now untrammelled, buoyant as a bird,
Without one coward fear, one poor regret,
By heaven's melodious breath to rapture stirred.
It springs, inspired, with all its white sails set,
And rosy bowers may woo it from its duty,
Where Joy supine sits weaving garlands frail,
And other barks, freighted witli love and beauty,
May tempt, but it glides onward with the gale.
True to Us destined port, through storm and shine,
Though sails be rent and waves in fury rise.
Its beacuu light a burning hope divine,
For ever bright, though tempests sweep the skies!
A Mother's JLovc.
There are few objects of contemplation more
melancholy than the waste of human love which
the aspect of this world presents of deep, tender,
uiitririno-. disinterested love bestowed in such a
manner as meets no adequate return; and what
must be the harvest gathered in, to a mother's
faithful bosom, when she finds that she has reared
up children who are too refined to share her
humble cares, too learned, and to clever to waste
their talenf on a sphere of thought and action like
her own, and too much enspio-ed in the pursuits of
intellectual attainments ever to think of her! Yet
to whom do we look for consolation when the
blight of sickness or sorrow falls upon our earthly
peace, but to a mother? And who but a mother
is invited to take our afflictions or trials 7 It the
stigma of worldly degradation fall upon us, we- fly
to a mother's love for that mantleof charity which
is denied elsewhere. With more honored and dis
tinguished associates we mav have joy, but the
bitter tears of experience are wept upon a moth
er's bosom. We keep for our summer friends the
amusing story, the brilliant witticism, or the intell
ectual discourse ; but we tell to a mother's ear the
tale of our distress and the history of our wrongs.
For all that belongs to the weakness of humanity,
a mother s affection is sorely taxed; why, then,
should not daughtei-s have the noble feeling to say
before the world, and to let their actions speak the
same language "ihis is my earnest and best
Think of it.

What a humiliating thought, that the millionaire

to-morrow be food tor worms! Is nt that an ex
tremity, reader ? If people would think more there
would be less vanity and more real happiness on
earth. The richest man is as poor as the beggar
aye, a thousand times poorer, when death knocks
at his door for all his wealth cannot prolong
life an hour. Who is rich then? The man
of millions? No. The beggar ?Na Who then?

A Noble Act.
Among the many examples of praiseworthy con
duct which the late terrible calamity developed, one
instance of daring intrepidity and successful effort
by a young man deserves particular attention :
In the third story of a wooden building on Front
street, Mr. Geo. Miller was lying dangerously sick,
attended by his wife and daughter. After the for
mer had been removed, it was ascertained that Miss
Miller was yet in the building, the roof and sides
of wn,ch were enveloped in flames, and her life im
mediately exposed. At this juncture, a young man
about eighteen years old, Mr. Mortimer Barnes.

rushed up the staircase and succeeded in reaching
ner room, in endeavoring to rescue her She reso-
lutely refused to go with him, being- somewhat be
wildered and under the impression that her mother
was yet in the building, whom she declared she
would not leave. While fruitlessly expostulating
with her, the flames had reached the staircase, and
egress was barred up ; but young Barnes, nothing
daunted, finding that she would not accompany
him, gallantly seized and bore her down stairs
through the flumes, and placed her in the care of
her friends. In this daring and heroic exploit he
was badly burned, as was also the young lady;
but her life was saved, and he at the imminent haz
ard of his own life was her preserver. Young
Barnes is How confined to his room; and though
suffering greatly from the effects of the fire, is in a
Lalr wa7 OI recovery.
1 he youhff lady is also suf
fering greatly, but is now doing well. Such instan
ces of devoted heroism are rare indeed, aad de
serve to be remembered. Osweero Adv.

FREMONT, OCTOBER 27, 1849.
How to pass the long winter evenings with pleas
ure, profit and instruction, is a question that has ex
cited the attention of some of the newspapers, who
take an interest in the welfare of our youthtul me
chanics and operatives. How to pass them with
pleasure, in the too common acceptation of that du
bious word, is too universally known to call for elu
cidation ; but how to unite profit and instruction
with recreation, so as to extract from the conscious
ness of wasted time the sting of regret, is not so
generally appreciated or considered. Literary as
sociations, debating clubs, reading rooms, and oth
er intellectual recreations, naturally suggest them
selves, as means of passing time without corrupting
morals. The vast advantages of knowledge, and
the high positions always commanded by intellect
ual power, are too self-evident to call for an argu
ment in favor of selecting this mode of passing the
lono- winter evenings. 'Aye! but then,' cries a
buoyant spirit, 'this is study, this is labor and we
want recreation, pleasure and amusement we
want to relax after the toils of the day.' True !-
and pray is there any incompatibility between lit
erary occupations and recreation ? What pleasures
are more intense and permanent than those of the
mind ? Where can you find the same variety as
in books ; 'from grave to gay from lively to se
vere !' Besides the pleasure, there is the profit
The pride of superior knowledge, the consciousness
of intellectual power, the ambition ot lame, are they
not the highest pleasures of which the mind is sus
ceptible ? Reading aloud, is itself a noble occupa
tion full of amusement. So is debate, so is recita
tion. Intellectual recreation is also susceptible of
every variety of modification ; and there is no kind
of knowledge that is not useful, the certainty of
profit is always ensured. When the mind is engag
ed, time makes its most rapid flight. Now any
number of young people may form any sort of as
sociation they please, to read, converse, and recite,
and they cannot fail to be pleased. The habit of
reading soon augments its pleasure. The same
number of people, associated together for intellec
tual and literary recreation, will enjoy an hundred
fold the pleasure of those, who meet for mere sen
sual gratification. Besides to vary the amusement,
music and song and dance can be occasionally in
troduced to divert the more Volatile members. Mu
sic is so closely connected with poetry that it be
comes a natural adjunct to literary divertisement
The elevating aad wholesome influence of such
winter evening occupations would soon be felt, and
a general emulation would be kindled to excel in
mental acquirements ; while the happy ettect pro
duced by them on character, temper and deport
ment, would tend to place the mechanic in that so
cial position which naturally belongs to him as a
rational and useful being. TPhila. Ledger.
Learning is not wisdom ; we may master all
the lore of antiquity be conversant with all the
writings, sayings and actions of the mighty dead
we may fathom the sciences, read the heavens, un
derstand their laws and revolutions dive into the
mysteries of matter and explain the phenomena of
earth and air; yet, if we are not able to weigh our
own actions and requirements with the actions of
others in the balance of even-handed, impartial jus
tice, and repine not at the verdict if the clear, pure
light ol charity and forbearance has not cleared the
mist of prejudice from our understanding if we
have not yet obtained the perfect knowledge and
pertect government ot ourselves, and strictly and
taithtully maintained the secret spring of our minds,
the fountain of our opinions, and the motives of our
actions if we have not yet learned that 'love is the
fulfilling of the law' we are not wise we are as
yet only on the threshold of knowledge.

corps of surveyors, engineers, computer attaches,
and "conditional employees" which he has with
him number nearly forty, and no provision whatev
er has been made for their employment on any use
ful work connected with running the line. The
principals will be engaged at this point, but no
means have been adopted to procure transportation
for them, should it be thought expedient to carry
the line through by actual survey from here to the
head waters ot the tiua. 5ut you may rely upon
it, that it will not be attempted and if the expe
dition to the mouth of the Gila be successful, that
is as much as can possibly be expected. ' The head
of this Commission should have been a scientific
and military man also, and of great energy, as an
expedition of this character, through a new coun
try so barren of resources as this is, is one of the
most serious moment."
JST The commissioner of the French Assem

Phillippe, has completed that duty, and estimates

are set down at 30,000,000 trancs, and he has de

Opposition to Gen. Taylor.
In the present opposition to the Administration
of this country, there seems to be a bitterness be
yond that which has ever characterized any politi
cal party. The measures of the President have
been attacked before their results were to be seen
his person has been ridiculed, and his simplest ac
tions criticized and blamed. Nothing that has been
done has pleased his opponents. He is assailed
because he will not allow Americans to attack
power at peace with us. He is attacked because
he repels the insults of a foreign power with prompt
energy. All this seems to arrise from a reckless
determination on the part of our opponents to op
pose the constituted authorities, and because their
own party have been excluded irom power, to
weaken the influence of our government at home,
to render it ridiculous abroad, to show to those who
love republicanism in Europe, that party spirit is
superior to the love ot country, to the love ot repub
lican institutions, to the desire of having our nation
respected abroad, and having its influence spread
over those who are contending tor freedom through
out the world.
To put down an Administration, no matter how
pure, or how useful, because their own adherents
are deprived of office, seems with our opponents
more desirable object than the dignity and reputa
tion of our country abroad, or the preservation of
the admiration which foreign powers ought to feel
for republicanism. W hat a reckless, selhsh policy,
utterly at war with all that is good and proper in
our government! Uan such revilers ot 'the pow
ers that be' call themselves patriots, or be ranked
even m the class of honest men
Democratic Consistency. How beautiful is
the consistency of the democracy! A short time
ago they were full of free trade ; it was then their
favorite doctrine to sell where you can obtain the
best price, and buy where you can purchase the
cheapest; regardless whether our manufactures
rose or fell. Now, one of our democratic cotem-
poraries is growling because Mr. Stevenson, the
President of the Chattanooga railroad, has gone to
England to purchase railroad iron, where it can be
had and delivered in the United States at from one
third to one half the price of iron in this country.
Admirable consistency! Why was not the doc
trine of encouraging the iron trade taught under
previous administrations? We fand, too, that the
democracy are becoming strong advocates of cot
ton mills in the south; and we would not be sur
prised if, ere long, they were to claim the encour
agement of home manufactures as their own pecu
liar and long cherished doctrine.

mand by the appoinment of Tom Benton as lieu

freely showered on him during the last years can
vass, and the bitter opposition he then received at
the hands of the party. The Union is childish.

Locofocoism out in Wisconsin Old Hunker
Locofocoism probably afraid that the rest of the
world should think it was asleep, if it did not fol
low the example of its brethern in New York, m
doing something knavish and unprincipled, passed
a resolution at a convention they held at Madison
lately, recommennding the immediate "reannexa-
tion" of Canada, and enforceing the propriety of
having an "occean-bound Republic ;" that is to say,
in plain English, grab all of Canada, and wash it
down with the "whole or none" of Mexico, and all
Central America into the bargain ! The resolution
was adopted, with but one member voting in the
negative. The Wire-pullers and party-managers,
it seems to us, carry this annexationism, now-a-
days, to an extremely silly point The thing has
lost all the novelty it had before the Mexican war.
But, after all, Locofocoisn will be Locofocoism, spite
of honesty, principle and every thing else.

Population of London.
In London and the immediate , Districts, there
are about 3,000,000 persons. The number of
deaths registered in a single week week, recently,
was 3183 that is equal to 464 every day, 19
every hour, one person every three minutes.--Now
this may appear a rapid depopulation ; but'if
the population of London and contiguous districts
were placed in a line, and at a distance of 14 yards
apart the line would be 25,000 miles long, and if
persons diefl at tha average rate of one every
three minutes and allowing 1000 births every
week, it would then be 26 years before London
would be depopulated. . Cin. Gai. '
StThk Cup of Life. Life is truly a mingled
cup, consisting of sweet and bitter; it is a change
able day, consisting of Jights and shades. Every
day brings some cup of pleasure to slake the
thirsty soul, but it is not unmingled, for every day
also brings its sorrows. Everyday brings some
good, and every day excites some sigh. -. There is
no day so dark as not to be cheered by the light of
hope ; and yet its light perpetually gleams upon the
hour of " mental darkness and sorrow, as the sun
looks through the over hanging cloud, and mingles
its beams with drops of the falling shower. Such,
is life, and we must make the best of it as it is.
To be elated with its pleasures and prospect so
as not to think of its sorrows, will lead to disap
pointmentfor they will find usout To brood over
its ills to the neglecting of the good we may enjoy
The Union has every day a new story of some
diplomatic correspondence, with this or that Minis
ter, conducted by Mr. Clayton, in every one of
which, according to this organ of the foreign lega
tions, he has been roughly handled and the charac
ter of the country lowered. Supposing these sto
ries to be true, the Union must derive them either
from the foreign parties to the negotiation, or from
spies in the state department. In either case it
seems to have been imposed upon. All its allega
tions have been pronounced unequivocally false by
the Intelligencer and Republic, speaking by au
thority. ' "
The Union accounts for this attempt of foreign
powers to trample upon our government, by the dis
covery it alleges they have made, that the Ameri
can people have been foolish enough to elect to the
Presidency a mere dolt a man utterly incompe
tent to the discharge of his duties and hence, says
the Union, they (foreign ministers) believed they
could with safety alter their conduct and their tone
of language in treating or negotiating with our Cab
inet' Now, it is very true that the Union has done
its best to make the world believe General Taylor
was a mere imbecile, but it arrogates too much
when it supposes its character is such as to give the
slightest weight to its assertions. Were its state
ments believed, even by those whose organ it is, the
country might indeed be exposed to insult
Indigo Curious Fact. 'The Indigo plant was
a native of South Carolina. It grew spontaneously
among its weeds and woods. More than one hun
dred years ago the planters there commenced its
cultivation. In the year 1 748, South Carolina ex
ported to Great Britain, 200,000 pounds, and the
Parliament granted a bounty of twelve cents per
pound to induce its greater cultivation. In 1787,
Indigo was 6ne of the staples of South Carolina, ,

Beautiful Passaoe. Lord Morpeth, in one of
his addresses to the electors of the West Riding of
Yorkshire, uttered the following beautiful passage:
"Reference has been frequently made to the
reigns of our former female Soverigns, and indeed
every Englishman must fondly look back to the
wisdom of Elizabeth and the victories of Anne.
But in shaping the disired career of their fair and
young successor, we do not wish that her name
should rise above the wrecks of the Armada; we
do not seek to emblaze on her throne with the
trophies of such fields as Blenheim, or the yet more
transcendent Waterloo. Let her have glorias, but
such as are not drained from the treasury or dim
