The Wife. Forsake thee! Never! Though the mark Of Cain were stamped upon thy brow; Though thy whole soul with puilt were dark} Fear uot'that I will leave thee now. No; underneath the listening stars I bound my life, my all to thee; Not crime and sin can break the bars— Tis death alone can set me free. Thine, thine, "for better or for worse," Through joy and sorrow, bliss and pain; Though others hate, and blindly curse, I’ll love and cleave to thee the same. And who is left thee now but me? The world look on in pride and scorn. Oh, dark indeed thy way would be, With little hope of brightening morn. Alone to tread the downward road, Without one pitying hand to save! No, dearest, I will share the load,— Our ]>arting spot shall be the grave. And when remorse is on thy breast, And dark thy brow with inward pain, Oh, be it mine to tell of rest, And lead thee to the path again ! To smooth the narrow way to peace. To cheer thy hopes, to soothe thy fears, Bid thy remorseful anguish cease, And wipe away thy bitter tears. Or, if my pl«>ading love is vain. And deeper, blacker crimes ascend, My breaking hcartshall tell no tale, But steadfast follow to the end. When shadowy death shall break the chain That bound us in a life-long spell, The grave alone disputes thy reigu. Then only will I say—Farewell. MISCELLANY Disposal of the dead.—It seems to have been the favorite object of most ages and coun tries to preserve from putrefaction the bodies of those who, in life, had been beloved or re spected. The Egyptians have succeeded in their mummies, and the Romans in burning and collecting the ashes of the dead; but the more rational process has seldom been consid ered, viz., that of speedily incorporating with the earth all the remains of organized matter. There is a class of animals (IVrmcs) which forms the connecting link betwixt animal and vegetable. Instead, threfore, of incasing the corpse in lead or oak eolfins, or enhalming to preserve it a little longer from worms, it is surely more rational, and more according to the laws of nature, to bury it in such thin or per ishable materials as may most speedily pro mote dissolution; and, if the surface of the Sound were covered with flowering plants, e grave, instead of an ohject of disgust and horror, might be converted into a pleasing rec ord of our past affections. How delightful is the thought, that while we are inhaling the fragrance of a rose or violet, growing in the mould com)>osed of our ances tors or friends, we may be breathing the pure and perfumed essence of all that now remains of what was in life most dear to us. If all our church-yards were flower gardens, and every grave a bed of roses, we should learn to look upon the mansions of the dead with hope and joy, and not with dread and disgust; and the good Christian should follow his Lord's example, whose burial-place was in a garden. A Wonderful Clock.—There is now in the possession of, and manufactured tiv. Mr. Collins, silversmith, of Gloucester. England, a most ingenious piece of mechanism—an eight day clock, with dead beat escapement main taining power, chimes the quarters, plays six teen tunes, plays three tunes in twelve hours, or will play at any time required. The hands go round as follows: One, once a minute; one, ooee an hour; one, onee a week; one once a month; one once a year: shows the moon’s age, the time of rising and setting of the sun, the time of high and low w ater, half-ebb and half flood; and by a beautiful contrivance, there is a part which represents the water, which rises and fails, lifting the ships at high water-tide as if it w-ere in motion, and as it recedes leaves these little automaton ships dry on the sand. It shows the twelve signs of' the zodiac: it strikes or not, chimes or not, as vou wish it; it has an equation table, showing the difference of clock and sun every dav in the year. Everv portion of the clock is of beautiful workman ship, and performs most aeurately many differ ent objects which are called into action by the ingenious proprietor, who is most willing to describe all its various achievments to any one who may feel a pleasure in pay ing him a visit Don’t Drink much Water.—A person in good health, and hi the moderate pursuit o business, does not feel like drinking water, even In summer-time, if not very thirsty. In fact, great habitual thirst in summer is the sign of a depraved appetite, resulting from bad habits; or it is a proof of internal fever; and the indulgence of even so simple a thing as drinking cold water largelvin summer-time, especially in the early part of the dav, will Sreduce a disordered condition of the system. lost persons have exjierienccd more or less discomfort from drinking largclv of cold wa ter. If we drink a great deal, we must per spire a great deal; this perspiration induces a greater evaporation of heat from the surface than some have to spare; the result is a chill, then comes the reaction of fever. Manv a person arises from the dinner or tea table, in June, chilly because too much cold fluids have been taken. Those who drink little or nothing, even of cold water, in summer, till the afternoon, will be more vigorous, more flill of health, and much more free from bodily discomfort, than those who place no restraint on their potations.—[Hall’s Jour, of Health. “I Don't See It.”—Lord Nelson was un doubtedly the author of this slang phrase. At the celebrated naval battle of Copenhagen, Nelson, who was determined to continue the flght, but whose attention had been called to a signal of the commanding officer to cease hos tilities, placed his hand over his good eye, and pretending to look with the blind one, said; “I don.t see it,” aud at onee ordered a brisk renewal of the engagement. Peter Heine, aDutchman, from a cabin-boy, rose to rank of admiral. He was killed in an action at the moment his fleet triumphed over that of Spain. The states-general sent a depu tation to his mother, at Delft, to condole with her on the loss of her son. The simple old women, who still remained iu her original ols scurity, answered the deputies in these words: “I always foretold that Peter would perish like a miserable wretch that he was; he loved nothing but rambliug about from one country to another, and now lie has received the re ward of his folly.” “Not Dead Yet.”—Two rather singular cases of remarkable escape from living burial are related as having occurred subsequent to the battle of Fair Oaks. The lx sly of a Colo nel was found on the Held and brought in.— Arrangements were made for emlialining it The process includes the. use of galvanism. The shock was given. To the astonishment of all of them the colonel rose and walked forth. The other case was also that of a colonel who was found dead on the Held. In deference to his rank, he was brought to the hospital and laid among the dead. Ilis friends prepared to give him a decent burial, and were about to carry the body out, when the colonel rolled over, and, in tones more like those of a man drunk than dead, called out: “Ben, John, where is my whiskey flask?”—Tribune Cor. Chubch Music.—In a timely and eloquent discourse, delivered by a clergyman of this city lately, the preacher, in illustrating soue of the prejudices which have existed on the subject of music in churches, spoke of a very religious old lady, who, when asked her opinion of the organ of a church, the first time she had seen or heard one, replied, “it is a very pretty box of whistles, but, oh! it is an awful way of spending the Sabbath!”—llouton Transcript. “Papa,” said my bright-eyed little girl to me one day, “I b'lieve mamma loves you better'n she does me.” I confess to doubts on that subject, but I concluded that it was not best to deny the soft impeachment. She meditated thoughtfully I about it for some time, evidently construing my silence as unfavorable to her side. “Well,” said see at last, “1 s’pose its all right; your the biggest and it taken more to love you.” His’n and iSihs'n.—The vulgar contract ion, “you’n, her'n, his’n,” are not confined to Yan kee use, but are common in Berkshire (Eng land) dialect. They even say sills’ll, ns appears from a popular Berkshire ditty: “But t’other young maiden looked sly at me. And from tier seat she ris’n— Let's votl and I fro on our way, And we'll let she go sAtj'n. We are commanded to let our light shine be fore men; the man with a red rose keeps his light shining before himself. THE MARKETS. Portland Wholesale Prices Current.

PROSPECTUS or THE PORTLAND DAILY PRESS: KDITID I* Y JOHN T. GILMAN, recently of the Hath Timer, AND JOSEPH B. HALL, of the Aroostook Herald. The Portland Daily Press is intended to be au enterprising, vigorous and live Daily Morning Paper, containing the latest and fullest news by mail and telegraph. THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is a large, well-filled, carefully edited, and neatly printed Weekly paper, intended specially for general circulation throughout the State. Both of the above named papers will labor to inculcate, in no dictatorial spirit, sound political prin ciples and to promote tbe material interests of the State, and of the City of Portland as its interests twine with, and are inseparable from, those of the State. Politically, the Press will give an earnest, cordial, and generous support to the administration of Abra ham Lincoln, who in little more than one year, has indellibly impressed himself upon the nation's heart as an incorruptible patriot, an inflexible Chief Mag istrate, and an honest man; the ability of whose ad ministration is most signally exhibited, not 'only in the matchless operations of our aftny and navy, but in the unparalleled fact that, in the midst of this gigantic rebellion, our Government securities are selling at a premium. It will zealously labor to ex hibit and defend souud Republican principles, and, inasmuch as political organizations have become a necessity in carrying into effect great principles of political economy, and inasmuch as ,thc Republican party which, in the brief chapter of its history already written, has successfully rotated the allegation of its enemies that its designs and tendencies were sec tional, and triumphantly vindicated its claim to a just and liberal Nationality, has remained steadfast in its devotion to theL'niou while other organizations have so generally become infected with a disloyal spirit, and inasmuch as it is the only party which at present seems competent to conserve the great prin ciples underlying all free Governments, the I*rkrs will cordially sustain the organization of that party, not with a design to foster a mere partizan spirit, but in the full cmiiciousness that it embodies the true principles upon which our government rests, and af fords the only available means of accomplishing such results as a lofty patriotism imperatively demands. It will neither seek nor endorse any compromises with men in rebellion against the laws of the land, but will inculcate loyalty to the great central idea of ail true democracy—that the majority must govern. Upon the exciting question of Domestic Slavery, it may be proper to say, that while the Press will sanc tion no interference with the constitutional or legal rights of loyal men, it will neither apologize for au evil which constitutes the foulest blot upon our national character, nor attempt to resist the tide of events that seems destined to sweep from existence au institution which is the greatest anomaly in a free government. The emancipation of slavery in the federal Capital, the co-operation of the Federal with the loyal State governments, to secure gradual eman cipation. as proposed by President Lincoln, and all other constitutional measures looking to a peacetal removal of our greatest “moral, political and social evil,” will find in the Press a generous and hearty support. mu' iiiu» uisum-iiv announcing me general course proposed for the Prkm, aud intending that, alike in war and in peace—in our country's peril and in its triumph, it shall speak with no uncertain voice, we do not lose sight of the fact that true men have hon estly differed, and that, coming by different routes they now find themselves travelling parallel roads; and, instead of seeking to widen the differences be tweeu those who are required by a common patriot ism to act in concert, the Prem will labor hopefully to encourage unity of purpose aud harmony of act ion among all loyal men. Aside from its political department, the Pres® will be earnestly devoted to the advancement of the best interests of the city and State. Its Local Depart ment will in no case be neglected. Particular atten tion will be given to the Commercial and Maritime interests. It will be the aim of its conductors to make it an indispensable institution of the State, and a ge nial and welcome visitiy in every work-shop, count ing-house, and family circle. The Editors, not un known to the people of Maine, will give their undivi ded energies to the work before them, and labor to make such a pa|>er as the city of Portland, the State of Maine, aud the exigencies of the times demand— one that shall be true to the popular instincts. The Portland Daily Press is printed with en tirely new type, on a sheet as large as that of any daily in Maine, and issued every morning, (Sun days excepted,) at £5 per annum. Subscriptions for lew than sjx mouths, 60 cents per month. The Maine State Press, large, neatly printed, aud well filled with the news of the week, and orig inal and selected Political, Agricultural, Literary and Miscellaneous reading, making it specially adapted to the Family Circle, will be issued weekly, at £1.50 per year, idvariably in advance.
