Ur-Bonc Dayi.
Every heart has known the pleasure,
Wakening chords of long lov'd lays ;
Tinged and toned with tender sadness,
' Sucred thoughts of by-gone days. .
Oh !.what feelings steal upon ui
"When we try again to gaze,
'A.9 mem'ry "paints in softened colors .
Lights and shades of by-gone days. . ,
Through the scenes of youth enchanted '
Melting fancy wanton strays,
Repeating life's fantastic drama,
Every act of by-gone days.
Forms of dear ones lov'd and loving .
Mem'ry's magic wand can raise ;
Ilopes and fears the heart once cherished,
"Woes and bliss of by-gone days.
Sad or happy, high or lowly,
Lov'd or lovely be its ways,
Every heart delights to linger
Round the charm of by-gone days.
Honolulu, 1856." " :

The roots of a. tree arc hidden so are tho sources

A thimble full of powder will split a rock forty feet

Omnibus Joke. It is told of ChaTles Lamb, that,
one afternoon, having taken a seat in a crowded om
nibus, a stout gentleman subsequently looked in and
politely said All full inside ? "I don't know how
it may be with the other passengers," answered
Lamb, " but that last piece of oyster pie did the busi
ness for me."
It i3 summer now, but it was winter, clear
and cold, and the snow was finely packed, when Dr.
Meadows was one of a sleighing party, which he
describes," so far as he and the young Widow Lambkin
Trere concerned, in the words following :
The lively Widow Lambkin sat in the same sleigh
under the same buffalo-robe with me.
Oh, oh ! don't, don't '.' she exclaimed, as we
came to the first bridge, at the same time catching me
by the arm, and turning her veiled face toward me,
While her little eyes twinkled through the moonlight.
"'Don't what?' I asked. I'm not doing any
thing.
. Well ; but I thought you were going to take
toll,' replied Mrs. Lambkin.
" Toll, I rejoined ; what's that?'
" Well, I declare !' cried the Widow, her clear
laugh linging out above the music of the bells, ' you
pretend you don't know what toll is !'
" 'Indeed I don't, then, I said laughing ; 'pray
explain ,- if you please. "
" You never heard, then,' said the Widow, most
provokingly you never heard that when we are on
a sleigh-ride the gentlemen always that is, some
times when they cross a bridge, claim a kiss, and
caiiuiou. uut I never pay it.
I said that I had never heard of it before ; but
when we came to the next bridge I claimed the toll,
m and the Widow's struggles to hold the vail over her
race were not enough to tear it. At Inst th vail wm
removed, her round, rosy face was turned directly
toward mine, and in the clear light of a frosty moon
the toll was tt&en, for the first time in his life, bv
T r l o . . - .
juur. imxKiuws. ouuu we came to a long bridge with
several arches ; the Widow said it was no uselo'resist
Sr'man who would have ins own way, o she paid the
toll'without a murmur.
.. But you won't take toll for every arch, -will
you; Doctor ?' the Widow saill so archly, that I could
not fail to exact all my dues, and that was the begin-nine"-i.But
never mind tLe rest . The Lambkin had

been figuring in the public prints quite conspicuous
ly, from Lis open denunciation of the Vigilance Com
mittee ; and so offensive has his course been to the
public, that he was hung in effigy before his own
church in San Francisco. - The act was charged on
the Vigilance Committee, who have denied all knowl
edge of the affair.
Dit. Scott Hung in Effigy. On Sunday morn
ing Oct. C, before daylight, the Rev. Dr. W. A. Scott
was hung in effigy before his own church on Bush
street. The puppet was cut down about 7 o'clock.
The law and order organs acquit the principal men
of the Vigilance Committee from any participation in
the affair, but strive hard to foist it upon the friends
and sympathisers of the organization. The whole
ridiculous proceeding, however, is understood to have
been a silly trick of certain law and order bloods for
the purpose of raising an excitement against the Vigi
lants. Neither the Vigilants nor their friends have
as yet gone to work in such a ridiculous way. They
have done what they have done in an open public
manner. They have not formed themselves into an
association for scattering fire-brands and disturbance
among their fellow-citizens and called themselves by
the hypocritical name of "The Young Men's Demo
cratic Club." It is to be hoped that the men who
strung up the puppet may be found out, and we will
then know the truth. A case occurred the other
day in which a man poisoned a water cask and tried
to throw the crime upon the head of another. Be
yond a doubt, that case suggested this pitiable expe
dient of hanging Dr. Scott in effigy and then howling"
over it. San Francisco Bulletin.
The Vigilance Committee had offered a reward of
$7,500 for the persons who were concerned in the
above affair, and it is not unlikely that if detected,
the most summary punishment will be inflected.
Great Britain. From every part of the United
Kingdom the harvest reports are of a favorable char
acter, and but little doubt is now entertained that the
grain crops will be at Joast a fair average in quanti
ty and quality. In Scotland the crops are very
heavy. In the political world there is nothing worth
reporting. Miss Nightingale has returned to her
home in Derbyshire, avoiding all public demonstra
tions of welcome. '
The Queen of Oude at Southampton. The In
dus arrived at Southampton on Wednesday evening
Aug. 17, with a heavy portion -of the Indian mail.
Amongst her passengers are the Queen Dowager of
Oude, and the brother and son of the ex-King, with
10G followers. The Queen Dowager is a good-looking
woman of dark complexion, fifty-five years of age,
and very intelligent. She is very sanguine as to the
success of her mission to this country for the restor
ation of her son to the throne of Oude. She lias
80,000 for current expenses. The jewellery she lost
on her voyage was worth 50,000. Some portion of
it was intended for presents for the Queen of England.
Tho son of the ex-King-is a -very. handsome youth.
He and his uncle dress in the most magnificent style,
their head-dresses being covered with diamonds and
emeralds. Many of the followers are small, poor-
looking men, and exceedingly dark. The Queen of
Oude and suite occupied the whole of the fore part
of the ship, where a cooking galley was fitted up.
The party lived upon rice, curry, sheep, and lambs
between Alexandria and Southampton. The dishes
were usually served up of curries and pillaus. The
Queen of Oude occasionally sent into the saloon for
the English passengers a curry or pillau, and such
dishes were found to bo delicious. There are six
maids of honour in attendance on the Queen every
day. A screen was erected on deck, the inclosed
part was carpeted, and the Queen and ladies were
escorted up behind the screen, great care being taken
to keep all persons from gazing on the ladies. The
whole of White's Royal York Hotel, which was unin
habited, has been taken by the Queen, who is to pay
12 guineas a day for the use of it. The ex-King of
Oude is expected to leave Calcutta shortly for England
with 150 followers. The treasures which the Queen
lias on board consist chiefly of the most costly Cash
mere shawls and jewellery. II I us. Jews.
Health of London. London is not in an average
state of health.- 1250 deaths were registered in the
week that ended on Saturday, August 1G, whereas
the corrected average of the corresponding eight
weeks of previous years, when cholera was not epi
demic, is 1127. In the second week of August, 1819
and 1854, cholera was epidemic, and the deaths
amounted to 2230 and 1833. During tho week the
births of 703 boys and 792 girls, in all 1585 children,
were registered in London. In the ten corresponding
weeks f the years 1816-55 the average number was
1127.
The Crystal Palace Fountains. Last Saturday
Aug. 20, another display of the whole series of foun
tains took place. There was on this occasion a most
numerous, and, for the season, a veiy fashionable,
attendance of visitors. The gardens were crowded.
The day was propitious for the exhibition ; and, for
the first time, the gigantic columns of water in the
lower basins attained their full altitude. 280 feet.
France. On Friday, the 15th ult., the Emperor's
fete took place salutes were fired, masses said, the
Te Deum sung, games and dramas played, concerts
and fireworks heard and seen. The JIoniteur pub
lishes a decree opening a credit of 522,000 francs for
the payment of the interest and sinking fund of the
shares guaranteed by France on the Greek loan of
1833. Marshal Pelissier's title is Duke of the Mala
koff. with a pension of 100,000 francs per annum.
M. Ilenland has been appointed Minister of Public
Instruction.
French Railroads. French railroads are super
bly managed. The administration is perfect and
regular as regulators in all their movements. On
one railroad line, two hundred and forty trains pass
a certain bridge every day, and no collision. The
roads are well built. They cost high, compared with
ours but what would ours cost if made as good as
these ? The stone-masonry, the grading, the ballast
ings the sodding of the slopes, the depots, the station
houses, the order and the preciseness are all models
which we shall follow eventually. No conductor'can
cheat here ; no collecting of fares in cars ; no confu
sion in getting in : their tunnels are excellent, and
their street crossings admirable.
- The Dudley Astronomical Obs ervatory at Albany
was inaugurated on Thursday. A brilliant audience
of from four to five thousand persons, including the
members of the Sci-sntifio Ccngress,and others distin
guished for learning, ability and official position, and
a large number of ladies, werin attendance. A let
ter was read from Mrs. Dudley, donating fifty thou
sand dollars for the furtherance of the objects for
which, the Observatory was founded. The announce
ment of her liberality was received with, acclamation
and a general uprising of the audience. The Hon.
Edward Everett delivered the inauguratory oration,
taking for his subject " The Uses of Astronomy."
By a singular and accidental meeting, the widow
of Marshal St Arnaud and the widowed Lady Eaglan
are now traveling together on the Continent, and are
at present at the baths of Florabiers, where jN apoleon
III. is sojourning.
