Marr’» Lips are Red with Roses. BT MAJ. G. W. PATTEN, C. S. ARM V. Mary’s lips are rod with roses. Yet how cold the words they say! Joy on Mary’s cheek reposes, Yet that cheek is turned away. Still, for all this careless seeming. Maty's eye serenely beaming, £iog. Shines like star-light through my dreaui- Night and day. Mary's lips may learn their folly W hen tlie hour is past for bliss; And her check of melancholly Vainly turns in search of this. When she finds how humors vary. Then, perhaps, may frugal Mary Mourn the hour she was so chary Ufa. kiss. Fort Miller, Cal. I 'O’ Ihe Journal of Commerce , Portland. Oregon,is about a lady’s span in size one way,and the span ol a titan the other. The editor has taken the City Fathers in low, and seems deter mined to make something out of them. His in structions are most judicious. He says; “ There is a great deal to be done, and it all must he done in a commercial « ay, that is to say to profit. The gentlemen who have been elected are indebted lor their elevation to the “Journal ol Commerce. ’ They are constant readers of Jls instructive columns, and cannot plead ignor ance of what the great deal is to which we so pertinently, and .-hall continue frequently to re ler th-un. They have undertaken a gigantic task. To rule and govern such a city as Port hind would lurnidt forth several aiuphi/riont coun cil*. were they as wise ax the celebrated council which swayed empire in the ancient cities o! Greece, if the tusk were half as great as that o‘ regulating its public press, and upholding its com merei.il interests which is so cosily done by us. l.et them however take courage—not Dutch, hul the ‘true American’—-for our influence and pop ularity shall support them in every emergency so long as they toe the mark, and walk a crack!” The editor, iu conclusion, intimates that “the Council will plainly infer that the Journal of Com merce is /« for a sh ire of their jovs as well as their toil* " He also gives the following gentle hint to such persons as trade upon borrowed capital: “Although the Journal of Commerce is fur nished at :i price much below its intrinsic value, we will not permit speculation to go * nnwltipped of justice.’ We are informed that ‘one ot our oldest and most respectable citizens’ made a net profit ul 7 .j cents on a single copy of it last week. The fact that the profit was re-invested, alone in duces us to pardon the offeacc of ‘trading upon our capital.’ Verb sat. sap." Sketches ok Paragua. —lii a series of “Sket ches of Paragua,” written Ity George 8. Ray mond, and now in course of publication it> the Boston Museum, we find the following attractive description of tamale hahits. Everybody s ttokes iu Paragua, and nearly every woman and girl, more than thirteen years old, chews. Stop a moment; lam wrong in the last assertion. They do not chew, hut they put tobacco iu their months, keep it there constantly, except when eating or sleeping, and instead of chewing, they roll it about with the tongue and sack it. Only imagine yourself about to salute the rich, red, pouting lips of magnificent little Hebe, arrayed in satin, and Hashing with diamonds; she puts you hack with one delicate hand, while with the lair taper fingers of the other she draws from her month a brownish black roll of tobacco, the size of your thumb, and quite two inches long, looking like a monstrous grub, and depositing the sax.ry lozenge on of your sombrero; puts up her face and is ready for your salute. I hav# sometimes seen an over-delicate foreigner turn away with a shudder ot loathing under such circumstances, and get the epithet of "cl sat taco" (the savage) applied to him by the of fended beauty for bis sensitive sqeamishness. However, one gets used to these things in Para gua, where you are, per force of custom, obliged to kiss every lady yon are introduced to, and one-half you meet are really tempting enough to render you reckless of consequences, and you would meet the proffered lip in the face of a to bacco battery, even were it the double-distilled “honey dew” of Old Virginia. Sermon- for Moderate Drinkers. —A Scotch parson once preached a long sermon against dram-drinking—a vice very prevalent in his par ish—anil from which, report said, "he was not himself wholly exempt. Whatever ye do, breth ren, do it with ‘moderation,’ and above all. be moderate in dram-drinking. When ye get tip ve may tack a dram, and another just before breakfast, and perhaps another just after, but dinna be always dram-drinking. If you are out in the morn, ye may just brace yourself up with another dram, and perhaps another before lun cheon, and some, I fear, tac k another after, which is very blameahle, but dinua always be dram ming away. Naebody can scruple for one just before dinner, and when the desert is brought in, ami after it is taneawa, and perhaps ane, and it may be twa, iu the afternoon, just to keep you drowsliug awa—but dinna be always dram, dram, dramming. Afore tea, and after tea, and between tea and supper, is no more titan is right and good ; but let me caution ye, brethren, not to !>• always dram, dramming. Just when ve start for bed, and ye are ready to pop iuto it, and perhaps when ye wake in the night, to tack a dram or twa is no more than a Christian man may lawfully do; but, brethren, let me caution you not to drink more than I have mentioned, or may-beye rnav pass the hounds of moderation. \\ e see in tile Knglish papers a curious anecdote of Wellington, quoted from the New Quarterly Keview: “ Some years since, the Juke wassilting at his library table, when the door opened, and, with out. any announcement, in stalked a ligure of sit gularly ill omen. ‘ Who’re you ?’ asked the duke, in his short, dry manner, looking up with out the least change til countenance, upon the intruder. ‘I am Apollyon.’ • What want V ‘1 nni sent to kill you.’ ‘ Kill me 1 very odd,’ * 1 am Apollyon, and I must put you to death.’ ‘ Bliged to do it to-day ! *1 am not told Uicdav or the hour but I mus» do my mission.’ ‘ Very inconvenient—very busy—great many letters to write—call again, and write me word—l’ll be ready for you.’ And the duke went on with his correspondence. The maniac, appalled proba bly by the stern, immovable old man, backed out of the room, and iu halt an hour was sale in Bedlam.” Large Foutlnk to a Convict. —A man named Robert Sutton, confined in the Auburn State Prison. New York, for robbing Judge Har ris. of Albany, lias just received intelligence that be is the heir to ninety thousand dollars, by the death of a relative in England. He has yet some five years to remain in prison. Though a mil- Jitrruiitr. he has neither liberty, fine hueu, or B umptuous fare. 1 here are some minds, which. like the buz- Zatd s ne, can pass heedlessly over the beauties ol nature, and see nothing but the carcase, rol ling in the corner. On the night of the 3d inst., an unsuccessful attempt was made to lire the Post Office, at San f raucisco. by means ol gunpowder and phospho rus. 1 Rich Specimen of Exaggeration. The following article from the Louisville Jour nal, is a rare specimen of the hyperbolical re presentations so common among modern writers. The virtues and vices of most men are exaggera ted by their friends and opponents, but Prentice, in this article, has exceeded anythin'' we have seen for some time: The Terrors ok Ugliness. —The last num ber of the Democratic Review is ornamented (?) with a portrait of Mr. Bennett, of the New York Herald. It must be confessed that Bennett is not a handsome man. The Louisville Journal pokes fuu at his likeness iu the following pitiless style: “ There’s one thing we will readily admit, and that is. that if Bennett’s portrait be correct, he is the ugliest of the Democratic editors. For a while we doubted whether he or a certain neighbor of ours is the ugliest mortal, hut the twist in the eyes of Bennett decided the contest iu his favor. We congratulate our neighbor that there is one editor uglier than himself in the Democratic ranks. Benueti’s portrait is terrific. Such a thing ought never to be painted or daguerreotypeef. It ought to he considered a penal offence to make anything so revolting to all our ideas of propriety. No matt has a right tc; monopolize so much ugliness. If Bennett’s ugliness could be distributed over a thousand faces, it would make each of them intensely, hatefully ugly. He ought not to bo permitted to go into the street without a blanket over his awful frontis piece. No wonder that so many of the New York children die of convulsions, since Bennett is permitted to walk abroad with uncovered lace. \\ e once heard of a man’s face that was so ugly that it was placed on andirons for the purpose of frightening children from the fire with much effect. No child dared to approach the andirons, and the liability to combustion from such cause was greatly lessened. If Bennett’s ugly likeness were stamped on fire-places, the etlect would be decidedly bad, for the children would not dare to go near enough to the fire to keep warm, and would become fros'-bilten and perhaps frozen to death. \\ e cannot conceive ol any reason why any thing should he as curly as Bennett. He is uglier than a half-starved hyena. He is Ugliness perfected. There is a thoroughness about his ugliness which defies competition. When Miraheutt described himself as a tiger that had had the small pox, he placed a very ugly idea in every bodv’s mind; hut it was beautiful when compared’ with Bennett’s face. W hen Appellcs made his beauty, Ids Venus, lie took an eye from one woman, a nose from another, a mouth from the third, and so on, until the \ etuis was complete in her more than earthly beauty. Now it any Appellcs. or artist ot any appellation, wished to make the most in dubitably perfect representation of ugliness, lie would not be compelled to take features from several very ugly persons, but all he would be compelled to do would he to get Bennett’s face and the enterprise would lie accomplished.” The I,allies of America. It is strange that the “oppressed condition of women” should ho more vehemently insisted upon and loudly deplored in the United States than in any other part of the civilized world. Is it because the appetite for homage grows by what it feeds on, that the profound respect with which the ladies of America are treated by the opposite sex fails to satisfy their champions ? Relieved of'lie rough cares of lite, waited upon, caressed, all hut worshipped ; deferred to in public, supreme at home; reigning over the hearts and exercising a powerful, although unac knowledged, influence over the heads of man kind ; the queen bees of the-human hive, for whose satisfaction we toil, and scheme, and hoard, oftentimes periling life that they may enjoy its comforts and luxuries—what would they more ? J he greatest evil that could he inflicted on the gentle creatures w*nld he to grant them all the privileges claimed for them by their self-consti tuted representatives. Their prestige would be gone. Jostling us on ’change, bidding with us in the market, arguing with us at the bar, le gislating with us in the senate, sharing, or try ing to share, with us all the labors now imposed upon the tougher muscles and hardier minds of men, they would soon lose the refinement, the delicacy, the moral beauty, and even the person al attractions which now render them objects of admiration. Wg, should no more “ bow down to them nor worship them.” They would he baffled and thrust aside by superior strength and activity abroad, and no longer have the power to hind us in silken chains at home. Is not their sway almost absolute? Place mix James is the shibboleth of the American gentle men. In all social gatherings, at all places of amusement, in the omnibus, the car, the steam boat. on the sidewalk, and even in the house of find, we concede to them the place of honor. We rise that they may he seated—we step out into the storm that they may come under shelter. For them we make the rough places smooth— for them we buy, and build, and beautify. The opera, the theatres, all shows, all luxuries, are theirs, without money and without price. They are attended upon with a chivalrous devotion, unknown even in hi Idle Prance, and manly hands are ever ready “ to avenge even a look that threatens them with insult.” We say again, what would they more ? Ladies of America, for your own sakes. do not attempt to bring yourselves down to our Iced. lou will soon find that the game is not worth the candle. “ Domestic happiness, the only bliss That has survived the fall,” would perish from the earth if woman were to rush the charmed circle of home into the arena of busy life, and insist upon sharing the routdi and tumble of this " bank-note world.” Then indeed should we have to say with Hurke, “ the age of chivalry is gone.”—A'. I'. Weekly Mes senger. Got,n— The Bibt.e. —Even in California our thoughts are not all on gold. Hear what the weekly Placer Herald says: “ How comes it that this little volume, com posed by humble men, in a rude age, when art and science were but in their childhood, has ex erted more influence on the human ai d on Un social system, than all the other books put to gether ? \\ hen comes it that this book has achieved such marvelous changes in the opinion of mankind—has banished idol worship—has abolished infanticide—has pulled down polyga my ami divorce—exalted the condition of wo man-raised the standard of public morality— created for families that blessed thing, a Chris tian home—and caused its other triumphs by causing benevolent institutions, open and ex pansive, to spring up as with the wand of en chantment?

Her might is gentleness —she wiuneth a way By a soft word and softer look : Where she, the gentle loving one, hath failed, The proud or stern might never yet succeed. Strength, power and majesty belong to man; They make the glory native to bis life ; But sweetness is a woman's attribute, By that she has reigned, and by that will reign. There have been some who with a mightier mind Have won dominion, but they never won The dear empire of the beautiful; v Sweetest sovereigns of their natural loveliness. [Schiller. An up country editor laments as follows over the gradual encroachment of womankind on the territories of pantaloons. He says, they first took our coats, at first we hardly missed them, a id then they aped our dickeys and cravats; they stole our sacks, but we only laughed and kissed them; emboldened, then, they wore our very bats, until, by slow and sure degrees, the witches have taken all: our coats, bats, boots and breeches.— Sack. Californian. There is a jail in one of the up country mining towns so awful -‘shabby” that the ptisoners are ashamed ot it. A few days ago one of its occu pants told the keeper that “if be didn’t get it fixed, be would break out and thrash him !” Our informant does not say whether the “keeper” bail complied with the culprit’s request or not. —lb. There is a voice of warning in the following, to which the young man should £ive earnest heed: “ But one false step, one wrong habit, one cor rupt companion, one loose principle, may wreck all your prospects,and all the hopes of iliose who love you. Said an old preacher once, “Fellow sinners, il you were told that by going to the top of those stairs yonder, (pointing to a rickety pair at one end ol the church.) you might secure your eter nal salvation, I really believe hardly any of you would try it. But let any- man proclaim that there was five hundred dollars up therefor you, and Til be bound there would he such a getting up stairs as you never did see.” “In whose principles,” said the dying daugh ter ol Ethan Allen, to her skeptical father, “ in whose principles shall 1 die—yours or those of my Christian mother?” 'The stern old hero of Ticonderoga brushed a tear from his eye as he turned away, ami with the same rough voice which summoned the Brit ish to surrender, now tremulous with deep emo tion, said, “In your mother’s, child—in your mother’s." Sacred to the heart is the memory of a mother’s love. The largest lump ever found in this Stale was taken out ol Dr. Carpenter’s claim, at the Colum bia House, about live miles above this place, on Monday last.
