DONOHO, All hail to tho beautiful Laud of the Free, In It* glory of mountain, and forest, anil 'wave! Like the liters tn the nky may Its broad Ijanuer b?, Shining on, evor on, o'er the true and the brave. From Atlantic, behold! To tho far Shore of Gold, In every green vale?oil tho cloud-dwelling height What million* look up to tho lianuor of Light! 'Tin a ftdry-llke vision, a wonderful dream, As towers, aud domes, and triumphs arise, Where a moment before was the durkness supreme, And the wlldernoss echoed with dread-sounding cries! But a Chibftain appeared, And a grand banner reared, | Aud Jo! from thu midst of the perilous night What millions look up to that Banner of Light! It Is them! it Is there! in Its beauty and pride! It hath shone o'er tho wild-tossing waves of the deep! It hath kindled tho torch for the hand of the guide; And our brothers awako from tho shame of their sleep! Let them come! let them trust In the God of the just! I And soon may the World, in the joy of its might, | Look up to ArniKicVs Bannku of Limit ! MUSIC. We feel its power, and can laugh or weep in I sympathy with its magic thrill; and when the I tender or impassioned words of the poet are breathed forth in Bweet, expressive cadences, we can be subdued as by a magic spell, or de I lighted equally with the poet and tho vocalist. But It must be music, and it cannot go to the heart if it does not come from tho heart: and hence, while tho simplest and even rudest bal lad can bring the tear to our eyes, the most refined and elegant artistic execution is often I without effect upon us, or excites regret that cunning execution and complicated strains I should, because they are difficult Rnd intricate, | so win the admiration of the world. We were lately present at a concert given by I Madame Anna Bishop, and during the per formance of Mr. Bayley upon the cornet-a-pis ton, (Mr. Bochsa accompanying upon a grand piano,) an eccentric-looking gentleman near us exclaimed, "I would to heaven that old gentle man would stop his noise and shut up that I box?I want to hear the music!" Mr. Bochsa is a fine performer, and the instrument was of superior excellence, yet the gentleman gave | utterance to our own wish. That there is music in all nature, we have I ofton been assured by the poets; and art may not be altogether incapable of producing it also. It must, however, be the auxiliary aud subor dinate performer, until we have artificial ears I and hearts to hear and be moved by the sounds it enn create. In the mean time we will record I its latest achievement. The ingenious and for tunate discoverer is Mr. William Hoyt, of Du pont, Indiana, who thus describes his musical instrument: " Place a pipe horizontally across the boilers of a steamboat, of such length and size as may be proper; both ends of said pipe to be stopped tight; in or near the centre, there must be a connexion pipe to let the steam out of the boil ers into said horizontal pipe. On top of said pipe, there must be placed seven or more small I pipes, perpendicular, ol such a height as may suit the?*f>erator; on top of said small pipes, place whistles, of different sizes anil tones, sim ilar to those used on locomotives and steam [bo*ta. Sitid whistles to be so made that the top part will screw down or up, so as to regu late tho sounds, while turning them at any con I venient part of the boat; place a set of keys to operate on said whistles, to let on and off the steaui by means ol pressing down those keys similar to playing on a piano; or there can bo ii cylinder so arranged as to operate on the whistles by turning a crank similar to a hand |organ." The advantages of this apparatus are thus I set forth by Mr. Hoyt: ? Music can be made by steam on a boat or locomotive, as well as it can be played with J brass instruments, and much cheaper, much louder, and without any loss of steam, as there is always a surplus whilst landing, whilst at the wharf, and VMS leaving. It is my candid opinion that the western boys will hoar 4 Old Dan Tucker,' ' Attld Lang Syne,' Ac., played on the western waters, by steam, at the di? | tnnee of ten miles." We admit the force of alt the recommenda I tions here given, and they are very forcible. Miii li cheaper, much louder, and without any loss of steam," are advantages not to be mis | understood; and when '? Dan Tucker," and Auld Lang Syne" may be heard nt. a distance of ten miles, the necessity of musical education will be obviated at least within a swarlh of full twenty miles along all our navigable rivers and lakes; and brass instruments of weaker power, and all softer tones, will be silenced in the grand harmonic reform of this great age of steam. _ LITERATURE OF THE CENSUS. In the schedules returned by tho deputy marshals, some singular facts and more singu lar comments arc occasionally given. At the end of the returns of mortality, four lines are ruled for remarks upon any striking peculiarity in the prevalence or forms of particular dis eases, &o. Desirous of filling this space in the most satisfactory manner possible, tho deputy, in a county we shall not name, appends the fol lowing, which must be read cloar through with due deliberation, in order to be justly appreci ated. Were such sketches to accompany all the schedules, the compiler of a gazetteei would not hare far to travel in order to obtain very minute and satisfactory materials for his work. " Remarks.?So far as regards this division, there is no malady that has been prevalent in our county for yenrs. The water is mostly free stone, with the exoeption of one large lime stone spring, and one or two mineral. The county of G is bountifully supplied with granite rock, hornehlend nnd quartz ; the soil is thin, but well timbered with oak of various kinda, hickory, American tulep or poplar tree, which grows on hill and dale I'hore is a splen did factory, nearly complete^ entirely of jjran ite, two hundred and eight feet in length, by fifty-eight ill breadth, which will go into oper iition in the course of 1H6I ; nnd much of cot- ; ton raised in this divibion will be consumed? I that is, raised in thin nud soiue of the adjoining counties?and will furnish a market at home. Moreover, there are but few comities in the United Htatea that have more facilities for any kind of machinery where wnter-|>ower is re garded, for it ia in abundance on every stream for such purposes; and the population of the county will be independent of the North, or even of the Old World. Apart from this, there are fottr doctors of the Old Hchool, living at the village of L who have established some > reputation as Burgeons and physicians, and the i county is flunked by two steuui doctors and out Dutch or water-doctor. From these advantage* the good citizens live in dread of no epidemics, or nothing short of the cholera or smallpox. As in all other sections of the world, a few die prematurely, by indulging in the inebriating fluid, which is so bountifully manufactured on many of tho streams of this division. It has been more or less deleterious in its effects on mind, body, and property, than all the wars, pestilence, &c., that have ever visited this di vision. In fact, the juice of the apple is still tortured into alcohol, with intense anxiety, to be retailed out to those who are as anxious fa> swallow it down as the retailer is to fob then money. It is not, as at first, when tho womau partook of tho fruit alone in the garden of Eden ; but the men now partake of the juice manufac tured into alcohol, and arc led captive by the Evil One at his will, notwithstanding Milton's idea at the distant view ho took of it. He said: ' Earth felt the shock, and nature, from her seat, gave signs of wo that all was lost.' The apple is a delicious fruit, but when fermented and distilled, ought not to be placed to one's neighbor's mouth, by the bottle, which beggars many citizens of all descriptions, discovering their nakedness truly, as the Prophet Habak kuk said?chapter 2, verse 15." We do not know to whom to credit the fol lowing, nor whether it is old or new. If old, it I is still worth preserving; if new, its novelty will enhance its value. But, old or uew, every farmer should apply it literally, and all other persons figuratively, to their instruction and profit: Signs of a Prosperous Farmer.?When lights Are seen burning in his house before the break of day, in winter especially, it shows that tho day will never break on the breaking in of the winter of adversity. When you see his barn larger than his house, it shows that he will have large profits and small afflictions. When you see him driving his work, instead of his work driving him, it shows that he will never be driven from good resolutions, and that he will certainly work his way to prosperity. When you see in his house more lamps for burning lard or grease, than candlesticks for more expensive purposes, it shows that econo my is lighting his way to happiness and plenty with that light which should enlightcu every farmer in the world. When you always soe in his Woodhouse a sufficiency lor three days or more, it shows that ho will be a more than ninety days' won der, in farming operations, and that he is not sleeping in his house after a drunken frolic. When he has a house separate from the main building, purposely for ashes, and an iron or tin vessel to transport them, it shows that he never built his dwelling to be a funeral pile for his fhraily, and perhaps himself. When his hog-pen is boarded inside and out, it shows that he is "going the whole hog," in keeping plenty iwtirle his house and poverty out. When his sled it* ioused in summer, and his funning implements covered both winter and summer, it plainly shows that he will have a good house over hi) head in the summer of early life, and the 71 inter of old age. When his cuttle uv'c properly shielded and fed in winter, it evidences that he is acting ac cording to Scripttm , which says that "r mer ciful man is merciful to his beast." When lie is seen tubscribing for a newspa per. and paying ia advance, it shows that ho is speaking like a book respecting the latest im provements in agriculture, and that he never gets his walking papers to the land of poverty. Tiie Temper or Women.?In the Lexington Papers, just published in London, we have some good anecdotes of society two hundred nnd fifty years ago. Here is one ; "A few years ago two ladies met in a nar row street at ten o'clock in the morning. Nei ther chose to permit her carriage to be drawn back, and they remained without moving for six hours. A little after twelve o'clock they sent for some refreshment for themselves and food for their horses. Each was firmly re solved to stay the night there rather than go back: and they would have done so, but a tav ern-keeper in the street, who was prevented by their obstinacy from bringing to his door a cart laden with wine, went in search of the commis sary of the district, who at length, but with much trouble, succeeded in effecting an ar rangement upon these terms: that each should retire at the same moment, and that neither should puss through the street." And here another, which would versify into a fine horrible ballad, as grand and ghastly as Alfred Tennyson's "Sisters." 44 The Parliament has lately confirmed the sentence of death passed on two daughters of a gentleman of Anjou, named Madaillon, for the murder of the lover of their younger sister. It appears that he was engaged to be married to the eldest sister, but deserting her, and pass ing over the second, he transferred his ad dresses to the youngest. The two elder sisters, in revenge, invited him to play at blind-man's buff, and while one bound his oyes the other cut his throat." And this is similar : " In Piedmont a gentleman addressed nt the same time one lady who was rich and plain, and one who was poor and very beautiful; and they, by chance becoming acquainted, exhibit ed to each other their correspondence with the vacillating lover, and one of them invited him to a meeting, in which, after joining in re prouchcB, they dexterously each deprived him of an ear." Stupio Folks.?The mnn who cannot see any fun in your jokes, the editor who respect fully declines communications, and the old folks that will not leave you alone with your lady love.

By the Editor of the Portland Eclectic. We once knew a "young lady," who lived in line style. Her parlors were elegantly fur nished, a in I her dress wus ulwnys of the latest fashion. She liud her piano and her teaoher, und she played Italiuu muaio churmingly. lxi Hll the exquisite graces of life she was fault less. She had a rich vein of sentiment, too. and could talk philosophy, or discuss the stand ard authors, at pleasure. Of course she road novels; m fact, a large portion of the day was devoted to that interesting und instructive oUum of polite literature. She was also somewhat industrious, for she would occasionally work embroidery. With an abundance of curia, that floated over her neck in beautiful profusion, a e form, hands white and delicate, largo pow ers of conversation in the usual drawing-room st^ le, she was followed by the young mon of taste. i et, somehow, ?he. never <jot married "beaux" fluttered around her like 9iea over a pot of honey, hut they Wore vory careful not to be caught as those other insects' aro apt to do. I heir attentions were never so particu lar as to require some " friend of the family" to demand what wi-re their inlentions. This was no fault of the young lady. She was in the market as plainly as though she had in scribed it on her forehead, "A Husband wa.ntkd ; for particular* inquire within." But the husband never, to our knowledge, came; and we believe she is at this dav a disconsolate old maid. What was the trouble? Step with tis Into the kitchen. That fat woninn, with a rod face is the servant of the house. Sho does the cook ing, the washing, and the chamher-work. From ear v dawn until late at uight, she is a slave. Well, that woman is our charming young lady's mother! She never sees her daughter's " call ers. ' If hy accident she should drop into the parlor while visiters were present, she would hasten out again with embarrassed maimer, looking as though she had couiuutUid an offenoe, while her own child's face would be suffused with blushes. Now take a walk with us. In that work-shop do you see that hard-workiug mechanic ? The wrinkles are hardening upon his faoo, and the gray hairs are thinly sprinkled over his hoad. He looks anxious, and as though his heart strings tugged some deep sorrow and mortifica tion. ^ He is the/fiMw of our boautiful ''young lady, and his hard earnings, for many years, have been absorbed iu the expensive luxuries that her admirable taste has craved. He, too, is excluded from the society of his own daughter. She moves in a circle above her parents, aud, m short, m aehamed of them. They live in the kitchen?she in the parlor. They drudge?sho reaps the fruit. Sh<> has no pulsation of grati tude lor all this. She despibes them, and, in fashionable gatherings, Is the first to curl her pretty lips at "low mechanics," provided she can do it safely. v \8 "i? ft ' tou thousand timet: i. object not to her accomplishments? to her taste in dress?to her manners. We look upon and admire such just as we do a superb statue of Venus. As a work of art it is beau tilul; but, nevertheless, it is insensate marble, having no soul, being of no use in practical life! and good for nothing but to look at. I lie beauty of the mind is the truo boauty, and the affectionate daughter who nestles her self lovingly into the heart of hearts of her pa rents?who makes her mother her companion and confidante?who not only works with that mother, but takes the heaviest burden upon herself she is the (rut lady. Slio may new have struck a noto on the piano, yet her house is melodious with harmony, sich as angels sing. Her exterior mny be humble, but her in terior life is clothed in the vestments of immor tal lieanty. There arc many "young ladies'' whose whole character is on tho surface. Dress, maimers accomplishments, all aro external. They hare no depth of thought, no moral strength, no heart. They are "outsiders." When the scorching lires of adversity burn beneath the suriace, there, is no protecting wall uproared within. The whole becomes but a heap of ashes, though it may retain the outward sem blance of humanity. The true lady cultivates the higher nature She is religious, but not fanatical?courteous." mt not fawning. Reposing serenely upon the arm of her heavenly Father, and associating with unseen angelic spirits, she meets the storm with cnlmness, and acccpts it as a disci plinary mercy. Her sympathy er??r pulsates to the cry of suffering, and her hand is ever open to relieve. She is beautiful at home, boautiAiJ a t I he bedside of the sick, beautiful through life, beautiful at the hour of hat departure into the world of spirits, and transcendnntly and | eternally beautiful in heaven. I That is tho trur lady. ? How to Fh.l a Church.?1 was once sitting at a public table, in the city of Boston, where 1 supposed myself to be a stranger to the cotup? ny. A gentleman opposite to me, however, appeared to know my face, and entered into conversation with me. " I understand, sir, that you have opened ? I new place of worship in this city." Assent was ] nodded. " You have a very large place of woy. ? ship. 1 suppose it will seat between two tud ; three thousand people." An other assent. ??Wow large is your society V " About one hundred and fifty." "How many hearers?" " Per ( haps a thousand." "Seats thcu for something like two thousand yet empty ?" " Yes." " Well, sir, I am not much of a saint myself; but I can [ tell you, that you preachers aro not always wise after your generation. 1 can tell you, air, as a business man, how to fill up that immense house, in less than five Sundays, so full thai there will not be a standing place loft for the j most curious and persevering." The man looked ! with all his worldly wisdom at me. At length i I asked him how if would be done " Well, ; sir," said the mart, "you must tav something or do something to which the multitude would like to listen. Common sense preaching, and simple-hearted desire to do good is not the thing. Now, sir, put an advertistmont, in the city papers, that next Sabbath you will preach a whole sermon with your eyes shnt, or stand ing on one foot, or sitting upon the pulpit cushion, with your legs hanging over. Your house will be full, hours before the time, and 11' I yon only keep up such novelties, and be sure to make them more extravagnnt as you procood, you will be the preacher of the city, and be fol lowed toy the masses." "But, how many of them would by such means be saved t" " Ah," said the wise man, " that* is another subject.'* _ [Dr. TeffiI.
