Wait on the Lord—tho’ earth entice To folly’s halls, or haunts of vice; By crystal streams thy feet he found, Where Faith and Truth shed light around, Where angels' visits surely Mess The path of grace and holiness.

Wait on the Lord—nor grudge to share With Him the wealth thy coffers hear; Bless with a gen'rous hand, and pour The richest gifts from plenty's store ; Thus, serving well, in His Great Name, The world thy ministry may claim. Wait on the Lord—His work of love Shall give returns from realms above, And bright rewards shall Christ bestow On those who serve His Church below ; For in His brethren Jesus lives; — Who gives to them, to Jesus gives. Wait on the Lord, with pious care; Wait in these courts, the ‘ House of Prayer,” And bring your free-will offerings here; The contrite sigh, the falling tear ; The soul inflamed by love divine, Itself the Spirit’s chosen shrine. Wait on the Lord, and watch and pray, -Thy task fulfil without delay; For soon all earthly plans shall close In death’s dark night and deep repose ; 0 wake, dull heart, and duly wait On Jesus, ere it he too late.

Mc- Clellan’s unpopularity among the soldiers j and masses, by the Republican papers, since his nomination by the Chicago Con- j | ventiou. Since bis removal from active j service, wo arc not aware that lie has done 1 anything to forfeit the good opinion which the citizens and soldiers then had of him; and as an evidence of his popularity at that time, wu copy the following items front a Republican journal of tho day, I the Baltimore Clipper, ol November 12th, 1862 : CiEN. M'CLELLAN EN ROUTE TO TRENTON, NEW JERSEY. Major General George B. McClellan, accompanied by his aids de rump, and a J few personal Iriends, arrived in Washing ton yesterday afternoon, about half pa.-t| four o’clock, in a special car from Alex andria, Va. At Ihe depot of the Wash ington Railroad they were transferred to a special car provided by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company, which was attached to the express train and reached this city at seven o’clock. There were a large number of people, i including sold ers and citizens, at the depot in Washington, and as soon as ; tlte train arrived a rush was made for the ear containing the General. He soon I after made h.a appearance on the platform and was greeted by prolonged cheers, giv ! eu with i hearty good will by the large | crowd. He raised his cap in ackttovvledg meet ol the compliment, and passed to another car. This was soon surrounded, and the cheers repeated Persons anxious to clasp him by the hand ru-hod into the ear, and others caught at his arm through the car window. He responded to their , cordial greeting, which continued until the train left the depot. On tite arrival of the train at the Cam den station, tite General was met by the i officers ol the Baltimore and Oitio Rail road, and escorted in a private carriage, | !1 "d his suite in a -special ear, to the i Phila ielpltia depot. They left iiinmdi [ ately for Philadelphia. At both depots | ho was greeted with cheers from the as ! sembied crowd. DEPARTURE OF GEN.

Grind bye.” To this there was a spontaneous and en thusiastic response. The troops were also drawn up in line, at Bristow Station and Manassas Junction, where salutes were tired, and where Gen. McClellan was complimented with enthusiastic cheers. The party arrived in Washington just in time to take the 5 o'clock train of cars for Trenton. The cars being detained, owing to some impediment on the track, Gen. McClellan was recognized by the many soldiers quartered in that vicinity, j when he was greeted with repeated cheers, Tito following farewell order was read to ho troops comprising the Army of the Potomac, yesterday morning, on dress pa rade : 1/f’aifquarters Army of the Potomac, Cum/) near llecturlown, T a., Nov. 7. 1562. —Officers and soldiers of the Army of the Potomac : —An order of the President de volves upon Maj ir General Burnside the command of this army. In parting from you I cannot express the love and grati rude I bear to you. _As an army you have grown up under my care. In you I have never found doubt or coldness. The bat- : ties you have fought under my command ; will proudly live in our uatiou’s history.— The glory you have achieved, our mutual perils and fatigues, the graves of our com rades fallen in buttle and by disease, the broken forms of those whom wounds and sickness have disabled, the strongest asso- i ciations which cat: exist among men, unite us still by an indissoluble tie. We shall ever be comrades in supporting the Const!-; tution of our country and the nationality of its people. George B. McClellan, Major General U S. A. SENATOR HARRIS, OF NEW YORK, ON THE REMOVAL OF GEN. MCCLELLAN. Albany , N. Nov. 10.—The remov al of General McClellan creates intense excitement here. Senator Harris, in a morning address to the law students at the Albany law school, said be was grieved and ind gnant at this removal, regarding it as a fatal mistake. He has written a letter to Gen. McClel lan, stating this as his opinion. What to Do when Lost in the Desert. Leave me alone in an island ever so fruitful and abounding in game, and I should perish immediately; for I could never climb for cocoa-nuts, or catch an animal in a pitfall, or build a roof over I my own head. As fop lights, I might; rub all the trees away—hard and soft—in | the Tropics before I got a spark out of \ them ; and as for getting water, unless by ! laying flat on my stomach, and drinking it out of a river, I should have no idea of how to set about it—where to dig, or even how to dig, and'much less how to make a spade to dig with, in the first place. Yot nothing in literature pleases mo better than accounts of bow people do got on under circumstances of this (happily for me) exceptional kind. Mr. Francis Gal lon, who wrote the Art of Travel, (if a : genuine enthusiasm on my part may ex- i case a vulgar phrase,) is the author “for my mouey all over the world,” or nearly so; a gentleman who, if placed a sans culotte in a forest of prickly pears, or sot adrift in the Cuttegat in a washing-tub, would by no means despair of his condi tion. Neither he nor any of the Robin son Crusoe sort of people that I have in my mind, would be at a loss what to do, | no matter in how perilous—ir as / call it, ! who have only a theatrical experience of such matters—in how “sensational” a po sition they might find themselves. Let us suppose, for instance, that one of! them, touring for his pleasure iu Central Africa (a thing he is very likely to do,) finds that he has ridden too far from bis. party, and is left behind in the desert.— j The .sense of desolation even Mr. Gallon allows to be in such a ease “almost over whelming.” Fur my part, I own, after I galloping hither and thither till my horse was weary, 1 should probably ecu nothing far it but to dig a convenient hole in the sand, and theieby save my friends at home all sepulchral expenses. But my gentld man who makes apple scoops out of knuckle bones is not so easily dispirited. He does nothing in haste or thoughtlessly, and yet everything that offers the best chance of success. In Hie first, place, according to previous ! advice, lie has iu his pocket a small piece of looking-glass, and this ho glitters to-J wards the direction which he supposes his party has taken. He always used to lie great as a schoolboy in annoying the I townsfolk generally, and especially the master’s wife, as she sat—a supposed spy upon our actions—-at tbe sec.inti-floor win dow, by dazzling them with a band-mir ror, and therefore he knows manage this mutter, which requires some practice to know how to do well. It. is quite as- ' tonishing at how great a distance—as far, perhaps, as ten miles—its flashes will catch the sharp eye of a Bushman whn has learned to know what ir is. If the sun is i ■ down, tli is amusement cannot be indulged in, and other methods of regaining his comrades will not he left untried. In file first place, from the moment that : this Genius finds himself t '-f (as an Irish-' man would write it,) ha k ep a careful! log, by observing and writing down the directions in which be rides, nhd the time and estimated distances, else he may want dersway from all help. His object, if he can retrace his own tracks, is to ride in a circle until the path of the caravan is crossed. He calculates coolly how far at the utmost lie can ho from his party, and makes this distance the radius of his cir cle or “castthen if he rides on one side hoping to obtain some clue, and does not, he will ride back again iu a sloping direc tion, and regain the circle farther on.— This is what our ingenious friend was used to do at “checks” in our “paper chases” at school, and it comes quite nat- ■ uraljto him. He will even recognize his bearings by the sand, which runs in a j pretty fixed direction, owing to the preva- 1 leuce of a particular wind ; by the wind I itself, if it happen to be blowing; or by j the stats—although they are most difficult guides of all. Again, it is probable intense thirst will soon make itself felt. I should myself long for hock and soda-water, and vainly i reirret that I ever left my club in Pall Mall; but our solitary friend indulges iu no such idle repinings, hot steadily watch es the evening flight of birds, which his experience of natural history tells him arc j sure guides to where water is. If a show- j er falls, while t stand with tuy mouth open ' catching bat a teaspoonful, my born Rob ' iusou Crusoe strips his clothes off, and ! makes a reservoir of them; and, moreover, | 1 ho knows that even to stand stripped in a j 1 shower of rain—a thing which mere con- ! ventional terror of the police would never ' ; suffer me to di>—is itself a great satisficr ! of thirst. Then for eating : chops ami 1 potatoes, of course, are unprocurable ; but one’s sandals, or skin-clothing, are not to be despised when nicely browned. To cook them, however, it is absolutely tie -1 ccssary to procure a light; and here comes iu my gentleman of the glow-worms.— ; The “common” way (not that / should i ever think of it) is, it seems, to put a quarter of a charge of powder into one’s gun, and above it, quite loosely, a quanti ty of tin let. But if one has no gun ! Well, then, my Dazzler reflects that the object glass of his telescope is in itself a burning glass, and only requires to be un screwed for use; oven his watch-glass, filled with water, will serve the same pur pose ; nay, the crystalline lens of a dead animal’s eye has lit a fire, and saved a life ere now I (I think I see myself ex tracting a dead animal’s eye, with the faintest hope of producing such a result 1) When that preliminary is accomplished, it is easy for him (but not for everybody) to kindle a spark into a flame by blow- j mg; Suppose, then, onr ingenious friend has | eaten and drunk and warmed himself, how does he procure himself a bed 7 In the desert there is not much choice of situation; ! but anywhere else, I know what I should | do. 1 should look out for a tree, and, in 1 default of a spring-mattress, make myself ; us much at homo, under its protection, as I could. But the man I despised in my youth does no such foolish thing. Ho knows that, as soon as ho lies down, the - tree will be worthless as a screen ; it is a roof, but not a wall. What he wants is “a dense low screen, perfectly wind-tight, as high up as the knee above the ground.” For this purpose he turns up a broad sod, seven feet long by two feet wide; and if | can succeed iu propping it up on its edge, j |is a happy man and a householder, A ! \ great traveller, who ought to hive been | born iu the Hruidical era, and taught all | our countrymen the art of sleeping, re j marks of this particular kind of bivouac : I “It is a great comfort to have scraped a little hollow in the ground, just where tbe j hip-bone would otherwise press ’’ But i this man is a Sybarite. Let us rather lis- j 1 ten to a more severe adviser, who never I | lets go his gun. Always, says he, “if you j would bo s.ito as well as luxurious, sleep with you rifle between your legs. The butt rests on the arm, and serves as a pil i iuw for the bead ; tbe muzzle points be tween the knees, and the arms encircle the look and breech, so that you have a I smooth pillow, and are prepared to start. :up urmtd at a moment's notice.” 1 should think one was also rather liable to | shoot one's self. But what an unctuous-j ; ness there is iu this gentleman's style !—j “A smooth pillow,” and “one's arms eucir- 1 ling’’—the lock of a rifle ! However, all honor to these brave and ■ ingenious men; for it is seldom, indeed, | that their talents meet with any credit,J having such little scope iu these times for their exercise. Upon the prairie and iu the solitary forest, they are kings of men, but iu the civilized world their peculiar vir-1 | tuns are useless, and therefore unrueog ! uized One never buds out —here at home i —the excellence that is in them, exempt, 1 perhaps, at some picnic-party, where too j corkscrew, ns usual, being left behind,! they astonish the company by extracting ! ; corks wiili.a silk handkerchief —really a ! must wonderful performance. At the | conventional dinner-table, they are dualit ies, and do not distinguish themselves iu j any way, save at dessert, when they amuse ; the children by cutting pigs iu 'the most ingenious and (to me,) inimitable manner out of orange peel. taS~ A Hungarian of Loudon is about presenting, for the attention of tlie world, | a bouse made entirely of paper—the walls, j roof, floor, gas-pipes, water-pipes, and moat of tbe furniture, to be composed of this material. The paper is combined with a description of gum that is suppos- I ed to be the kind wiih which the ancient* j ! coated their ship*. All about Eyes. Man cannot fix his eye on the sun, and, so far, it seems imperfect. Some years ago, however, a traveller in Siberia found men who could see tho satellites of Jupi ter with their unaided eyes. In some re spects animals of tho lower creation excel us. Eagles can look at tho sun while man cannot. Birds have a larger sight, too, than man, besides the advantage giv en them by their wings of a higher obser vatory. A now can bid her calf, by a secret signal, probably of the eye, to run away, or to lie down and hide itself. The jockeys say of certain horses, that “they look over the whole ground.” Tho out door life, and hunting, and labor, give equal vigor to the human eye. A farmer I looks out at you as strong as the boras ; his eye-beam is like the stroke of a staff. An eye can threaten like a loaded and lev eled gun, or can insult in a variety of forms, with thrilling effect; or, ia its al tered mood, by beams of kindness it can make the heart cl a nee with joy. Eyes are as bold as lions—roving, run ning, leaping, here and there, for and near. They speak all languages. They wait for no introduction. They ask no lease of age or rank. They respect neither povor i ty nor i iehes ; neither learning nor power ; j nor virtue, r.or sex ; but intrude aud come again, aud go through and through you in i u moment of time. What inundation of life and thought ia discharged from one soul into another through the eye ! The j glance is natural magic. We look into ! the eyes to know if this other firm is an I other self, and the eyes will not lie, but make a faithful confession ns to what in habitant is there. The revelations are sometimes terrific. The confession of a low usurping devil is there made; and the observer shall seem to feel the stirring of owls and bats aud horued hoofs where ho looked for innocence and simplicity.— ’Tis remarkable, too, that the spirit that appears at the “windows of the house” does al once invest himself in a new form of his own to the mind of tho beholder. Tho power in a woman’s eye was once happily expressed by the late George Ste phen on. On being asked what he con sidered the most powerful force in natars, he replied : “It is the eye of a woman to the man that, loves her; for if a woman looks with affection on a man, should be go to the uttermost ends of the earth, the recollection of that look will bring him back.” The color, too, of the human eye is very significant, and has, accordingly, attracted considerable notice from many celebrated writers. Some have often questioned whether there is such a thing ! a blue, eye, except in persons of low, lym j phatio temperament, when, say they, it in | variably indicates weakness of mind and j body. Light aud dark aud gray eyes are the most common, and they are generally the index to a robust constitution and energetic character. The majority of great men had such eyes. The brown eye is reflective, and not unlike the caves of ocean, has “unfathomable depths.”— Thoughtful aud truthful men and women have brown eyes. The hazel eye is the most fitful, because it assum -s different col ors in different lights, and may be slid to belong to merry and capricious disposi tions. Tho black eye is associated with passion and genius. It would appear to be, when attalyed nr anatomized, an orien tal eye, and its proper climate is the torrid | zone.— Emerson. Danish Legends.— la these days of j tercentenary festivals, and above all in the | town of Elsinore, it is a great sho;k to | one’s Shakspearianism to be told that 1 Hamlet, properly “Amlet," was not the j eon of a king of Denmark, but of a pirate ; chief; that, as a pagan, living centuries j before the Christian era, he did no more j than his duly in revenging his father’s I death ; that he by no means fell in single combat with Laertes, but lived to become Governor of Jutland and marry two wives, one of whom was daughter of an English king. Tite culminating point of this anti quarian heresy is that there was no Ophe lia. To have one’s faith destroyed in one of the sweetest characters that Shak speare ever drew is a trial; but there is 1 this consolation. Leaving behind this pio | turesque town of Elsinore with its 8,000 I inhabitants, nothing remarkable is passed 1 on the road to Fredensberg with the excep | lion of the ruined castle of Garre, to which a tradition clings remarkable fur its \ likeness in a double aspect to those con nected with English history. In the 14th century, Valdemar IV., like our Henry 11., concealed in this sequestered nook front the jealously of his Queen a Danish Fair Rosamond, known as Toveiil, “Little Love.” But whereas English history has been content to infer that Queen Elemor, after tho discovery, proved to her liege lord a sufficiently retributive thorn in tiie flesh, Danish story goes much further, aud dooms Valdemar, to the fate of “Ileruu j the Hunter,” for having declared that he should not desire Heaven if Gurro were left to him. tSf* Much curiosity was excited recent ly in the vicinity of the Bank of England by the arrival of a long train of railway vans belonging to the Southwestern Rail way Company, each ladou with boxes con taining several tons of gold and silver bul lion and specie, which had just ar rived by the mail-steaut'-r Shannon at j Southampton, from Mexico. Such was j the quantity that it took nearly the entire j afternoon to unload the vans and deposit | the cases in., the vaults of the bank, the i totsl value of the treasure being $7,343 ! 112. YOL. YIIL—NO. 45. Big Stories. ,! We remember hearing a story some <! years ago, which, having never aeon in 11 print, we venture to relate. - j A company of great story tellers had ■ I assembled one evening, in the bar-room of I j a tavern out west, and some astonishing 1 j narratives—real “whoppers”—had bean , j given for sure facts. At length, when the imaginations of the narrators of these ■ talcs began fo foil them, some*tmo called i on a young man who sat gravely in a cor ner, for tin story. “Oh," said he, candidly, “I haven’t j aflything to say. I might tell a story, | but 'nothing to compare with what has i just been told.’’ ■ However, the company insisted, and the young man began : “The adventure 1 am about to relate is ■ j somewhat singular, bat it will not surprise you after what you have heard. I was ■ once skating on a very smooth and exten sive held .of iee, and having excellent skates on, I almost flow; indued, so great was my velocity, that I did not see an air hole, which lay in my way, but dropped into it, like a bar of lead, and had my head shaved clean off my shoulders by the sharp ice." This assertion made a great laugh, and some one asked the young man how many limes his head would bear shaving off. “Hear me out,” he said, gravely.— “You remember, I said I was going very swiftly, and that the day was exceedingly oold. My body, then, with its acquired velocity went under the ice as fast us my head moved over it, and coming to anoth er air hole, up popped my body and down dropped my head, and froze in the exact position I would have desired'. So, you sec, I hud my head cut off and put on again, without the least exertion on my part.” “Lucky!" “But this is not the end of my adven ture On my return home, I sat by the tire relating my wonderful escape, when, my neck beginning to thaw, I undertook to blow my nose, and (brew my head chuck—behind the back log ! ’ “And, what then ?” “Nothing,” replied the narrator.grave ly, feeling his ueek, “only my head I be lieve, hasn’t stuck quite as well since !’’ It is needless to say that this was the last big story told that night ia the coun try tavern. Thirsting to Death. It ought not to be forgotten by any one liable to,shipwreok, that thirst ia quenched : by soaking the clothing in saU water twica. a day, or even ofienor, and allowing theta to dry upon the person. A noble aud hu mane old sea-captain, Kenedy, published 1 this statement more than a hundred years ago; yet it is f cry doubtful if two persons out of any company, taken promiscuous ly, are aware of so important a practical fact, to which the generous captain uttri i bated the preservation of his own life and • of six other persons. If sea water is drank, the salty portions of it are absorbed into ! the blood, and Bros it with a now nnd more raging thirst, and a tierco delirium soon sets in. It would scam that the sys tem imbibes the water, but excludes all the other constituents. It is known that wading in common water quenches thirst with great rapidity. Persons while work ing in water seldom become thirsty.— Aud it is further interesting to know, that however soaking wet the garment may become from rain or otherwise, it is 1 impossible for the person to take cold if 1 the precaution is taken to keep in motion with sufSoicnt activity to keep off the feel ing of chilliness until the clothing is per fectly dried or facilities are afforded for change; but in changing the garments af ter a wetting, it is always safest aud beat, j as an additional safeguard against taking' | cold, to drink a cup or two of some hot I beverage before beginning to undress. Not so Very Green.—A younc and apparently verdant otip, who gave his hail ing place “old Yarraont,” found himself I surrounded, upon a certain occasion, by* j crowd or quizzing upstarts, who seem d | bent to show their own smartness at the I expense of the Yankee. “Hallo, Jonathan !’’ says one, “where are you bound ?” “Deopn to Besting, on a little tramp,’’ was the reply. “What is your business in Boston?” continued that inquisitive gentleman. “Oh, I’m deoun arter my pension money,’’ responded greeny. “Pension money! ’ ejaculated whiskereo —“Low much do you get, and what are you drawing pension money for. ?” “Oh” answered the countryman, “I.get four cents every year—tew to mind my own business, and tew to let others folks’ business alone I” The crowd had no more remarks to of fer.
