Where'is the German's Falheiland? ls't Prussia? Swabia? Is't the strand Where grows riie vine, wheie flows the Rhine? Is't where ihe gull skims Baltic's brilio? No ?—yet more great and far more graud Must Ire the German's Fatherland ! How call they then the German's land? Bavaria? Brunswick? Hast thou scanned It wheie the Zqydder Zee extends? Where Styiimi toil the iron bends? No. brother, no!—thou hast not spanned The German's Genuine Fatherland! Is, then, the German's Fatherland » Westphalia? Pomerania? £>tand Where Zurich's waveless water sleeps ; Where W rester winds, whore Danube sweetts; Hast found it now? .Not yet ! Demaud Elsewhere the German's Fatherland! Then say, Where lies the German's land ? Iiow call they that uticouquered land? Is't where Tyrol's green mountains rise? The Switzer's land they dearly prize, By freedom's purest breezes fanned— But no, *tia not the German's laud! Where, therefor«, lies the German's land? Baptise that great, that ancient land! *TL surely Austria, proud and bold, In wealth unmatched, iu glory old? O,! none shall write her name in saud; Bat she is not the German's laud! 8uv, then, Where lies the German's land? *• Baptise that great, that ancient land! Is't Alsace? Or Loraine —that gem Wrenched from the Imperial Diadem By wiles which princely treachery, planned? No theseare not the German's laud! : ' . ' Where, therefore, lies the German's land ? Name now at last that mighty laud ! Where'er resounds the German tongue— Where German hymns to God are sung— There, gallant brother, take thy stand ! That is the German's Fatherland ! That is his land, the land of lands, Where vows bind less than clapped hands; Where Valor lights the flashing eye, Where Love and Truth in deep heart's lie, And Zeal enkindles freedom's braud— That is the Gorman's Fatherland ! That is the German's Fatherland Where Hate pursues each foreign band— Where German is the name for friend, Where Frenchman is the name of fiend, And France's yoke is spurned and banned— That is the German's Fatherland ! That is the German's Fatherland! Great God! look down and bless that landl And give her noble children sonls To charinh while Existence roils, And love with heart, and aid with hand Their Universal Fatherland! EMMET AND HIS LOVE. 'Twas the evening of a lovely day—the last dity of tbe noble and ill-fated Emmet.— A.young girl stood at tbe castle gate, and de sired admit an e into the dungeon .She was closely veiled, and the keeper could not im agine who she was, nor that any one of such proud bearing should be an humble suppli cant at the prison door. However, he grant ed the boon, led her to the dungeon, opened the massive iron .door, then closed it again, and the lovers were alone. He was leaning against the prison wall, with downcast head and arms folded against his breast. Gently ihe raised tbe veil from her face, and Emmet turned to gaze upon all that earth contained for him—the girl whose sunny brow in the days of childhood had been his polar star— the maiden who had sometimes made him think the world was all sunshine. Like a death-knell sounded the chain to her ears, and she wept like a child Emmet said but little, yet he pressed her warmly to his bo •om, and their feelings held a silent meeting —such a meeting, perchance, as is held in heaven only, when we part no more. He be sought her, in a low voice, not to forget him when the cold grave received his inanimate body—he spoke of by-gone days, the happy hours of childhood, when his hopes were all bright and glorious—and he concluded by requesting her to sometimes visit the places and scenes that were hallowed to his memory from tbe days of his childhood, and though the world might pronounce his name with scorn and contempt, he prayed her to cling to him when all otheis should forget. Hark ! the bell sounded, and he remember ed the hour of execution. The turnkey en tered, and after dashing the tears from his eyes he separated them from their long em brace and led the lady from the dungeon.— At tbe entrance she turned and their eyes met—they could say farewell; the door swung ■pon its heavy binges and they parted forev er : —is there not a Heaven ? At sunrise next morning he suffered glo riously, a martyr to bis country and liberty. And one—o'er her the myrtle showers Its leaves, by soft, winde fanned, She faded midst Italian flowers— The last of their fair hand. *Twas iu the land of Italy; it was a gor geous time of sunset in Italy. What a mag nificent scene 1 A pale, emaciated girl lay qpoo tbe bed of death. ' Oh I it was hard to die, far from her home in this beautiful land where the flowers bloom perennial, and the balmy air comes freshly to the pining soul. Ob ! no ; her star has set ; the brightness of her dream has faded ; her heart was broken. When ties have been formed on earth—close, burning lies—what, is more agonizing and hearl-rending to the spirit than to find at last the beioved one is snatched away, and all our love given to a passing floweret. But enough ; she died the betrothed of Robert Emmet—the lovely Sarah Curran Italy con tains her last remains—its flowerets breathe their fragrance over her grave, and lulling notes of the shepherd's lute sound a requiem to her memory. Boise County. — We are permitted to pub lish,say8 the Avalanche, tbe subjoined extract from a letter written by a resident of Idaho City to a friend in Silver. It is a friendly letter and not written for the public, but to convey a truthful statement of the new phase of mining affairs iu Boise county to an in terested party here : > Idaho City, Sept. 14, 1866. " Did you ever hear anything about the tunnel operations in Placerville? They have run a tunnel under what was called the bed rock, and struck gravel which pays big.— Doc Bryant, of this place, got some of the merchants to help him and has started a tuu oel into East Hill, commencing on the Bear Run side. They are now in about 140 feet, and a day or tw-o since they got through thp bed-rock and have struck into a kind of clay mixed with gravel and quariz, which pros pects first-rate. Wm. Middleton has been into it from tbe start, and a day or two since Vantine & Co. bought in. Vantine»was one of the first ones who tried the dirt, and was so well satisfied that be bought into it, and told about the prospect he got, and the next morning, at daylight, Jo Galatian and myself went up and prospected all over the back end of the tunnel and it seems to pay about all alike—as well in one place as another. It is round gold, like fine shot. We bought 100 feet—50 feet from Middleton for $150, and 50 feet from Bryant for $165—and I can't tell how far it is from the bed-rock, whether it is extensive, or anything about it. The contract for the tunnel is to run in 300 feet, and I think by that time we will know some thing about it. The number of feet in the tunnel claim is 1,000, and is held as follows: 380 feet by Middleton, about 250 feet by Van tiae, 300 feet by Bryant, 206 feet by Jo Gala tian, Krapp'and myself, and the other sixty feel by the merchants around town. I do not know how it will turn out, but there is no more feet to sell for the above prices at present. In Placerville their tunnel has created quite an excitement and they are run ning them iu all directions. If this country is going to pay better under the bed-rock than it did on top of it there is a chance for it to be a great one yet. I will keep you posted about things. One thing I know, I prospected the back end of tbe tunnel from ,tbe top to tbe bottom, and if there is plenty of such ground as that, I can pack the dirt out in a bucket and wash it in a rocker and make ten dollars a day, and not work very hard either. Indignant.— The N. Y. Post, sufficiently black for all ordinary purposes, cannot swal low all the New England iniquities. It grows indignant at the New Tariff bill, and thus warns its Radical brothers : " We warn the prohibitionists that they ride too high a horse for safety. They are trying to force a most hateful and wicked scheme upon the country. That is bad enough ; but they are at the same time keep ing out the representatives of the Southern States. Are they doing this in order to make sure of their own schemes? Is it to secure the passage of this prohibitive and destruc tive bill that they refuse to admit the South ern members? It would seem so, from their high-handed course. The country will be lieve it, and they will only ruin themselves by such a course, which heaps injustice on injustice, and commits one wrong in order to facilitate tbe committal of another—just as a highwayman maims bis victims in order the more easily to plunder their persons. The American people will not tolerate such legislation ; they will sweep away, at the first opportunity, men so faithless to the general welfare^ there are already signs to show that the men who vote for this tariff, especially under the aggravating circumstan ces of the exclusion from debate and vote, of the Southern members, will be left in a small minority in the next Congress." Different Latitudes. —A very ingenious youth from the Granite State, now residing at Denver, returned to bis lodgings, a few nights since, in a state of great independence and erectness. "My friend," asked his won dering companion and room-mate, " are you drunk or sober?" "Well," replied tbe youth with the peculiar, dignified and oracular manner which only an intoxicated person can assume, "for Pike's Peak, sober; but for New Hampshire, pretty d—d drunk I " Confidential. — William Lloyd Garrison seems to bave established intimate "confi dential" relations with the powers on the other side of Jordan. He is reported to have said in a recent speech : "No act of ours do we regard with more conscientious approval, or higher satisfaction, nor do we submit more confidentially to the tribunal of Heaven, and the verdict of mankind, than when, several years ago, on tbe Fourth of July, in the presence of a great assembly, we committed to tbe flames the Constitution of the United States." From the Petersburg (Va ) Index, Aug 15. THE LAST OF THE REBEL, ARMY. The serenity of the office of ihe command ing officer of this post was agitated on yes terday by the appariiiun of four Confederate «oldiers, who gatse their names and 'descrip tive lists'as fol.ows : Anthony Monkas, Co. E, 52d Georgia Infantry, 3d Army Corps, A. iN- V.; Thomas Wells, do.; James Brinberter. do., Allen Tewksberry, 43d Louisiana, do.— A more ragged set of morials had never ap peared before the Colonel during all the deal ings he has ever bad with the "ragged rebels of Lee's army." Tewksberry was a sort of walking illustration of original patchwork. His clothing had been tied and sewed and stuck together with string and thread and -thorns until there did not appear a solitary square inch upon which had not been tied up or stuck up iu some way or other. His com panions were not qui'e as badly off, one hav ing a pair of Yankee pantaloons with only a half dozen rents in them ; another biding the raggedness of his gray pants with a flowing, though ribbonry, Yankee overcoat, and the other making his decency apparent by con cealing the defects of his upper garments with an old oilcloth fly, awfully bedaubed with mud. Tewksberry slated to the Colonel that he and his party stopped on the Appomattox, about seven miles above the city, after the evacuation of Petersburg, at first tor the pur pose of resting, but they staid lunger than ihey expected and were cut off. They then made a vow tp live on that spot, and never go home or give up until the Confederacy was completely annihilated. They sought out the cave on the bank of the rive r , which at that point is very rocky, and after a little industry succeeded in erecting for themselves a most comlortable little home. Here they lived upon fish and game, and occasionally roasting ears, during all last summer, and of bread made of corn they had gathered from Ihe corn-fields, and an occasi« nal pig they found without a mother, in their rambles du ring tbe. winter. This spring and summer they lived as they did last summer, but recently hearing from an old negro man that the Confederacy had undoubtedly "gone up," they concluded to quit their barbarian life and surrender. On yesterday morning they marched to the city, with their muskets and accoutrements, stack ed arms in front of headquarters, sent word that they were the remnant of the Array of Northern Virginia, and that they wished to surrender upon the conditions accorded to Lee and the main body. Col Milton assent ed to their request, gave them transportation to their homes, and bade them adieu. The illustrious four roamed about town for a short time, had new suits of clothes given to them, and, after being made about half drunk, embarked on the Southern train for their homes. How to Prevent a Divorce. —When the senior Jonathan Truflibull was governor of Connecticut, a gentleman called at his house, and-requesied to see bis excellency in private. Accordingly he was shown into his "sanctum sanctorum;" and tbe Governor came forward to meet Squire W., saying : "Good morning, sir ; I am glad to see you this morning." Squire W. returned the salutation, adding as he did so, "I have called upon a very un pleasant errand, sir, and want your advice. My wife and I do not live happily together, and I am thinking of getting a divorce.— Wbat wuuld you advise ? " The Governor sat a few moments in deep thought, then turning to Squire W. said : "How did you treat Mrs. W. when yon were counting her, and bow did you feel toward her at tbe time of your marriage? " Squire W. replied, "I treated her as kindly as I could, for I loved her dearly." "Well, sir," said the governor, " go home and eourt her now just as you did then, and love her as when you married her. Do this in tbe fear of God for one year, and then tell me the result." The Governor then said, "Le ( t us pray." They bowed in prayer and then separated. When a year had passed away, Squire W. again called to see the Governor, and grasp ing his hand, said : "I have called to thank you for the good advice you gave me, and to tell you that my wife and I are as happy as when we were first married. I cannot be grateful enough for your good counsel." "I am glad to bear it, Squire W., and hope that you will continue to court your wife as long as you live." The result was that Squire W. and his wife lived happily together to the end of their mar ried life. Let those who are thinking of sep aration in these days go and do likewise. "Little acts of kindness, little deeds of love, -Make this world an Eden, like to that above." 'An Incident. —A " reb." who has long languished on the sweets of a forced idleness, consequent upon bis occupation having term inated with Lee's surrender, began to look about him for something to be, to do, or to suffer. Thinking himself sufficiently recon structed, he applied for work at one of tbe Departments, presided over by a Federal officer. "Have yon been in the rebel service?" he was asked. "Yes, sir," was the reply. "In any battles ?" "About eighteen pitched bat tles, sir." "Ever kill any Yankees?" "No, sir; never killed any." "How do you know that?" "Well, I couldn't kill any of them." "Why was that?" "Because they were alk id the rear speculating ; but I guess I flayed ahout a thousand Dutch and Irish." We did not learn whether tbe eandor of this reb secured him a place or aot, but it certainly was deserving of some recognition. —[Norfolk Virginian. CODY'S EXCHANGE! h Cor.
