ALONE, ALL ALONE. BY L F. N. Alone, all alone, with my thoughts and my pipe, I am dreaming of future and past, - A past that I cannot from my memory wipe And a future approaching too fast. While puffing and pond'ring the thought will arise, Of the little experience has thought; For still, as in youth, do I dream of love's prize, So rarely attained though often sought. To linger out life, with no partner to share The affliutions or blessedness we own To dream that this world for us might be fair, And then traverse its mazes alone. Oh, this is the shadow that darkens my mind And destroys every hope I would raise: I perish of thirst, and no water can find To restore me the strength of young days. [ Fliciarn Republican. Purposeless. The means by which men win success are strangely combined and arranged, each man for himself devising his cwn course of action, and very few men agreeing in the particulars of a venture to secure fortune. The success of individuals ought to be no more surprising than their failure; because, after all, that which enables men to prosper, is pUrposf', and that which induces failure is the lack of it. When a man goes into business, or starts in 'the world, with a fixed, determined purpose before him, resolved to do what he proposes shall be done, in nineteen cases out of twenty he succeeds; but when the lack of this is the opposite, we care not how intelligent he may be, the man fails. We see in every community, men of what are supposed to be ordinary capacity, who make no pretension to mental culture, who are unas suming in their intercourse with their fellows, and yet these men are of the utmost importance in the world's business. They contribute largely to the comfort, the pros perity, and wealth of communities adding to productive and enlarging development in all directions. In contrast with such as these, we have the dreamer, the student, and the theorizer, men of great mental capacity, quick at apprehension, keen in appreciation, eloquent and imaginative, but who are failures in the world's business. They produce little while they consume largely of material things. The sneer at plain business success as speculation, as the result of chance, when in reality it is brought about by patient and untiring industry, inspired by a purpose which is intelligent and convincing of success. The young man who begins life with a purpose to succeed in a well-defined busi ness object, seldom fails. He who has a purpose in view, as a rule is practical and sensible, because pur pose is an ingredient of common sense essential to the strength and effectiveness thereof. The man who pursues his special business, who makes it his thought, who eluci dates its advantages, and applies his powers to its advance, has a purpose, of which he never loses eight, and in the preEenee of which he is always nerved for effort. Every man of purpose is also on. of action-and when the purpose is to do good, the actor is blessed in himself and a blessing to those with whom he comes in contact A shrewd businees chap lately at tended the sale of a hotel in Ohio. He hadn't a cent in his pocket, but he stood up and bid boldly, "twenty eight thousand dollars." It was knocked down to him; and when the question was asked, "Who is the pur chaser?" this audacious scamp replied, "The Pennsylvania railroad." Of course, he was not required in person to put up the money from an imperial buyer like that, whereby he was able, in the coure of a couple of days, to sell the whole to another party for -35,000, and clear the difference. The country is now full of scamps buying hotels for the Pemnylvaniara ilroL, THE SENATE. Pint Day's essi. SENATE CHAMBER, Monday, January 1, 1872. Pursuant to the provisions of article seventeen of the State Constitution, the haLbte was called to order by the President of the Senate, the Hon. Lieutenant Governor P. B. S. Pinch back. The roll being called by the Secre tary, the following Senators answered to their names: Messrs. Barber, Butler, Campbell, Gallup, Harris, Hunsaker, Jenks, Kelso, Lynch, McMillen, Noland, Ra gan, Swords, Twitchell, Whitney-15. A quorum not being present, the President ordered the Sergeant-at Arms to go for absent members. The Sergeant-at-Arms, having re turned, reported that no absent Sena tors were about the Capitol buildings. Mr. Hunsaker then moved that there be additional Sergeant-at-Arms ap pointed by the Chair, not exceeding two, to go for absent members, and bring the same to the bar of the Sen ate, which, being duly seconded, was adopted: The President appointed as assistant Sergeants J. D. Houston, L F. Garic. Mr. Ragan moved to adjourn until to-morrow at 12 M., which, being duly seconded, was adopted. The President then declared that the Senate stood adjourned until to morrow, January 2, at 12 M. CHAS. H. MERRITT, Secretary of the Senate. House of Representatives. Fint Day's Proesedigs.

The Speaker then addressed the t House as follows: "After congratulating you, gen- I tlemen, on the advent of the new year and on your meeting as a part e of the General Assembly, it is ap propriate that I call your attention to what properly comes before you on this the first day of your meet ing. Under the constitutiou you are required to meet on the first Monday in January, which is New Year's day, and under the statute a this is a legal holiday, and the or-< dinary business of legislation should 1 be deferred. You have met the, constitutional requisition when the roll was called, a quorum present, and the House declared in session i and ready for business. Ordinarily, you would now appropriately ad-' journ till to-morrow, but there is one subject to which I call youear at-i tention, and upon which a becom ing action should be had by you. Since we last assembled death has I been in our midst and a raeeucy created in a high oMcial position. Our onored and lamented friend, a Lieutenant Governor OsearJ. Dann, is dead. BaResolautoions expressive of I our seeugs on the occasion, and a an adjourament in honor of his memory, Ihold take place '"Clear-headed, pare-hearted, hon- a eat and brave, he commanded the a respect of his enemies and the love I 1 o his friendsa Viewed per.nally I and oZislly, 'in his relations to t Demonmat and Repnblicans, to the , white people and the colored, we have suffered a painful loss. No man, in my judgment, was so potent for good to all classes, and none whose presence at this time could not have been better spared, and none whose place in the hearts of the majerity of the people of Louis iana could not be more easily filled." The following preamble and reso lution were offered by Mr. Burch, of East Baton Rouge, and read under a suspension of the rules: WHERAs, Death has removed from our midst Oscar James Dunn, Lieutenant Governor of Louisiana; therefore be it Resolved, That the Speaker of the House appoint a committee of nine members J0 draft suitable reso lutions of respect to the deceased; that the House do now adjourn in respect to the memory of the late Lieutenant Governor. Mr. Mahoney, of Plaquemines, of fered a substitute, which the Chair ruled out of order. Mr. Dewees, of De Soto, moved for a division of the resolution, so as to read as follows : Resolved, That the Speaker of the House appoint a committee of nine members to draft suitable resolu tions of respect to the deceased. Resolved, That the House do now adjourn in respect to the memory of the late Lieutenant Governor. Which was carried. Mr. Harry Lott, of Rapides, moved the adoption of the latter resoluticn. Carried. And the House was declared ad journed until to-morrow at twelve o'clock M. WILLIAM VIGERS, Chief Clerk. [From the Columbua Index. A GIEAT IISTAIE I YOUING MEN IN SOCIETY. One of the most serious and ridiculous delusions under which 1 some young men bor, who culti vate the society of ladies, is the im- i pression that the fair ones prefer to 4 be all the time laughing during the , hours they pass in gentlemen's I company. Their manner of con ducting conversation shows that these gallants consider everything the stupidest bore to their Dulcineas I but jokes, white lies and idle teasing, and consequently they grin them selves and endeavor to keep the I ladies convulsed from the moment they simper, "how-d'ye do, Miss Mary Jane," to the crowing of ten o'clock by sleepy chanticleer. If a stenographer could stand behind1 the curtain and take down an hour of this wit-froth, what a mess it would be to read! Such puns- such "stories" to keep the conversa tion a going-such bare flattery to make the fair ones blush and flut- i ter-such a misuse of language-it would be laughable if it were not ] so hard on the poor girls who must gabble with the geese and be foolish / with the fool? i A greater mistake was never made by these young men, who, we1 know, really mean to be agreeable. ] Ladies enjoy a certain degree ofi pleasantry and badinage as the: spice to social interoourse; but they : do not like that conversation which is all nonsense and levity. By nature more seriously inclined than i men, their choice is the conversation I which is made up mostly of sober sense. Hence it is they are so often heard to complain that this visitor "is too foolish," or that one "such a great flatterer," and praise in corresponding high terms the visitor who pleases their self-respect by leading to themes better suited to their tastes and education. The man always stands highest in the esteem of ladies who talks to themI as if he did not them so many chil dren to be amused with the jews harps and doll-babies of thought, and makes fun and merriment the exception instead of the rule. The habit we allude to is notice able often in places of public amuse ment. Hardly do they get seated before this class of beaux commence their everlo8ting nonense, turning to levity everything on God's green earth, and rarely giving their un B happy companions "a flash of Sblessed silence" even when the t music sounds or the programme culminates. Do they think it a I breach of etiquette to be sometimes I silent ? Are they afraid of being f called bashful if they do not chatter - through the play ! When they learn that their female friends don't want to be laughing all the time, but yearn for a sober face at least once a year, their chances for preferment will improve, and the poor girls themselves will bless their stars for the discovery ! There are butter flies, of course, who are never so happy as when silly. Our remarks apply to the ladies generally. Be pleasant, young gentlemen ; have your hearty laughs ; tease the sweet creatures about marrying (they like a little of that ;) but don't be monkeys. Fan is healthy, but there is so much of it in the world that is empty, the jaws ache with the continual exercise. Be like a good hotel keeper-change your diet. Moonshine and silly-bob will ruin any table in the world.--culi nary or colloquial Ir. aamner's Civil lights Bill. Mr. Sumner's supplementary Civil Rights bill receives the usual amount of smiles and wonder at its "fanati ciam." But a man who has sat in the Senate of the United States for twenty years, and who, having seen Breckenridge in the chair, and hav ing been smitten to the floor by the bullies of slavery, now sees Schuy ler Colfax presiding, and in the chamber around him a vast majori ty of Republican Senators of a country in which war has abolished slavery, probably smiles compas sionately at the contemptuous smiles of those who think principle fanati cism, and consistency impractica bility. Mr. Sumner's bill contem plates the prohibition to all public institutions regulated by law in this country-such as hotels, railroad cars, etc.-of the recognition of dis tinctions which the law has abolish ed. Those who think that it is foolish to attempt to make people associate with those whom they dis like, and whose conclusive argu ment against emancipation and 1 equal rights was, " How would you like your daughter to marry a nig ger?" may, however, be comforted. They are not to be compelled to marry their daughters to any body, nor to invite distasteful guests to their tables. But those who hold certain grants under the law for the public benefit are not to be suffered to discriminate arbitrarily against a certain part of the public. The keeper of a hotel, for instance, is bound to furnish entertainment to all orderly applicants, unless he has reason to suspect dishonest in tention. He can not lawfully refuse a guest because of a whim against his blue eyes or his straight hair. He may, indeed, keep a temperance house, to which prohibitionists will naturally resort; or he may an nounce his preference of Baptists or Presbyterians as guesta. But if a Methodist traveler applies in good faith for entertainment, the host can not turn him away because he is not a Baptist. Neither can he refuse a guest because he is an Irishman or a German, because he is of a fair complexion or of a dark, if there be nothing suspicious in his appearance or conduct But the Baptist and Presbyterian, the na turalized Irishman or the German, the man of fair or dark complexion, have no more rights under the law, as citizens, than the colored man. Those who think that they have an antipathy to colored persons may be correct, but it is evidently not an antipathy which extends to the waiter who brings them their dinner. And there are many per sons to whom the Irish aitiame is not agreeable. And to the war, sectarian of any kind the Jew or the atheist is very repunaat. But we do not therefore permit them to be excluded from plasm d commom public resort. It we did so, we whorld nallify our own laws and had in all public places, in churches orin halls, a coop in a cornerfor the Portuguese or the West Indian foreigner who might stray to our shores? It would be a barbarous folly. And if it were the native citizen descended from Portugal or the Vest Indies, the folly would be only the more conspicuous. If ft became a practice, so flagrant an outrage upon the equality of the citizen guaranteed by the funda mental law should be prohibited penalties in the common intereet. For the equality that we assert by law, the law must protect. That is what ]Mr. Saumner's bill proposes. It forbids 'distinctions founded upon a system of caste which the law has abolished. It prohibits, within its sphere, making an American citizen a parish be cause of his color. It aims to lift from the colored race as much as possible of the consequences of the curse which civilization has imposed upon it. If we meant to keep the people of that race an outcast lass, we had no right to make them equal citizens. But having made them so, we can not keep them out casts without infinite harm to our selves. However, we need have no fear of appalling results. The colored citizens are not obtrusive. They are not disposed to go where they are not wanted. But what man of honor does not burn with in dignation to see a polite and quiet colored passenger refused a place in a car or a steamboat from which a drunken and disgusting white traveler is not expelled ?. The funda mental principle of this republic is that every citizen shall be equal before the law. And whoever smilee at Mr. Sumner's bill smiles at the American principle.-Harper's Weekl,. Iepresentative Waills' Amaesty and Civil lights. We call attention to the timely introduction in the House, on Mon day, by the Hon. Mr. Walls, the col ored Representative in Congress from Florida, of a bill coupling therein amnesty as proposed by President Grant, (which may now be regarded an Administration mea sure,) with provisions securing to the outraged colored man the ad vantages and securities contained in Senator Sumner's bill supplemen tary to the Civil Rights Bill. We thank Mr. Walls for this hap py suggestion. He deserves the thanks and support not only of his colored constituents in Florida, but of every colored man of the nation; nor does it stop here; he deserves consideration at the hands of every lover of justice. If our worthy President and the Republican party shall think it timely and best to grant amnesty to those that rebelled, let it be so, but justice calls on them to secure, at the same time, due respect and security in civil rights to the colored man, who has never been a traitor. This munet be the terms of our assent to amnesty. The colored people virtu ally may, through Mr. Walls, (who speaks their sentiments,) "We want to be generos, you must afford to be just."-Newo Ntional Er.
