In yonth 's bright morn, when life was new, And earth was fresh with dew and flowers, And lore was warm and friendship true, And hope and happiness were ours, We started hand and hand to thread The chequered, changeful path of life; And with each other, trusting, tread, The battlo-fleld of worldly strife. We ranged in walks obscure, tinsccn: O'er rugged steep, through vale and glen, And climtd along the hillside! green, Unmindful of the future then. Wo caught the soDg of earliest birds, We culled the loveliest flowers of Spring, We plighted love In whispering words, And time sped by on fairy wing. And as it passed, new Joys wero found, And life was gladdened by the birth Of prattling babes, who clustered round To cheer with smiles our humble hearth. Fate thnift us fortli before the world, And phantoms whispered earthly fame, . Whero hope's proud banner is unfurled, And happiness too oft a name. ' Thus lured along, we rode the dark And foaming tide of public life, And proudly dared, with slender hart, The elements of storm aud strife. But storm and strife, thank Heaven, have passed, The night has fled and morning come 1 And we, tossed mariners, at last, .Returned once more to hearth end home. But of the loved ones God had gived, Two have returned two sunk to restj la life's gay morning called to Heaven, To the bright mansions of the blest. They sleep amidst Spring Forest's glades, Where flows its streamlet murmuring waves And oft at evening's gentle shades, We'll weep beside their graves. CHOICE MISCELLANY. California Curiosities. The two objects of Datural scenery in California moat worthy of mention are the big trees and the Yo Semite Valley. The routh to the latter place took us ihrongh Mariposa county, past the Fremont Mari posa niiues, where we remained a day, aud to the immediate vicinity of the grove of big trees known as the Mariposa Qrove, bat which io reality are situated in Fresno country. Theee trees are not on a plain, in a grove by themselves, but npon a high mountain, scattered about in tbe midst of a vast forest, approachable only ou horse back. Some of these rise to a height of neaily or quite three hundred and fifty feet and have a diameter of over thirty; with trunks so b-oad that down one of them which lies prostrate five- women can walk abreast with snch vitality that the burning out of chambers in tbeui of suSci. entsize for a tea party, with two or three side rooms for flirtaiiocB, will not destroy them; and they are so Dumcrous that after going about among tbcm till tbe eye was weary with trying to measure these mons ters of vegetation, many remained; some of wuicn seeinea larger man any belore. In the Yo Semite Valley, at one plaoe an al most perpendicular wall of rock rises for thirty seveu feet at another a mountain rises a mile high directly cut of the valley, and its rocky dome bn never been ascend ed by man; here lies the Mirror Like, re flecting tbe mountain beyond so perfectly that when tbe scene is reproduced in a photograph, bhowing both mountain and reflection, jou canuo" disuotryisli tbe oiib from tbe other; there is tbe fumous Ya Semite Fulls, with its single plunge of six teen hundred feet; a short distance belo Is tbe Bridal Veil Fall, now descending un broken its uine hundred feet, and now blown entirely from eight by a breath of wind; whilo further up tbe valley, at a point inaccessible except bv two miles of scrambling on foot, is the Nevada Fall, passing all water falls in beauty, with its descent of seven hundred feet. In sone place the purple wild flowers conceal tbe green grass beneath, and the strawberry flower grows to a size before unknown to me. The trees rise, perfect in form aod alive to the top, two huudred aud fifty email children may sleep in a tent, aud men audor the open sky, with comfort, by tb j side of a clear, sweet, calm aud bright stream True Charity. The lowest order of charity is that which is satisfied with re lieving tbe immediate pressure of distress iu individual caiea. A higher is, that which makes provision, on a large scale, for tbe relief of such distress; as when a nation passes on from commou almsgiving to a general provision for the destitute. A higher si. II is, when such provision is made in the wy of anticipation, or for dis tant objects; as when the civilization of savages, tbe freeing of slaves, the treat ment, of the insane, or the education of tb blind aud dual and mutes is undertaken. Tbe highest charity of alt is, that which aims at tbe prevention rather than tbe al leviation of evil. It is a nobler eharlty to prevent destitution, crime, aud igaorauce, than to. relieve individual; who never ought to bive become destitute, criminal aud ignorant. Wa'hinqton on Guard A young .man not quite twenty, from the western part of Massachusetts, was on guard before the Ueneral s floor, marchi; g back and forth in the snow, on a tremendous cold morniuir. Waihirgton came out and accosted him. My friend, bow lontr have vou been on guard bsref Nearly two hours, sir. Have vou breakfaatedr No, sir. Give me your gun aud go to breakfast at my table. lie did so, and General Washington inarched toe rouDQ until ne returned. What Is everybody dolus: at the same timef Growing old. Simplicity of Language. Don't part with voir common seme when you write. You need not make an Idiot of yonrse f, because you have a pen inyonrhnnd. Be simple, be honest, be nnuffected iu your speaking and writing. Nevsr use a long word where a abort one will do. Call things by their right names: nevor smother your thoughts with cloud of purases; let a spade be a spade, not a well known oblong instrument of menual indus try; let borne be home, not a residence ; a place, a place, not a locality. Write much as you would spoak ; speak as you think. With your inferiors, speak no coarser than usual ; with your superiors, no finer. Be what yoo isy, and say what you are. Avoid all oddity of expression. The wise man will so speak that no ' ne may ohserve how he speaks. Above all, du not bore your company with an affectation of precisiou and accuracy. One of tbe worst nuisances is the talker who is always setting you right. If some one ssys that ton thousand men were killed in some battle. do ti'Ct tell him that ft was only 9,970. Allow for 9 little latitude of statement in tbe freedom of easy talk, and be Dot slrcked with a certain dsgree of Lsrmltss embellish ment, when no false impression is given or intended. Talk to please not yourself, b your neighbor ; give bim the refreshment of sitting by a cheerful, modest, sensible talker ; one who is equally ready to give or to take and who leaves his facts and opinions ou your memory ; not the words iu which they wore uttered. Be a gentle man in openness of demeanor, in simplicity of langUMge, iu freedom fom singularity, if not by birth. Show your good tasto aod good breeding in your speech and style, if not in tbe fashion of your dress or your knowledge of etiquette. What Farmers Live for. A gem this, from the Southern JEgis Row we wiab all farmers would heed it. Their edueatiou is the bost iu the world, their life is tbe highest life. Why can't they find it out? There is something worth liviLg for be sides money. Tlict is very good, but it is not all With tbe rest let us raice a crop of good ideas. While you are farmer., re member that yon are also moo, wiih duties aud responsibilities. Live down tbe eld notions thi. a farmer must be an. uncouth, uneducated and uuthinkiug & mere plod di'Rpps. Move towards a bettor life. Do not keep your boys cornthe!ling all the long winter evening. Make your furm a place vour bovs aud cirls cannot beta lovinrr. r!(lltivat.M thft Iron hnvarA flnrl'u mnqnn. i gers. Care much for books and pictures. Don't keep a solemn parlor into which you go bnt once a month, with a parson or the gossips of the sewing society. Ilang arouudyour walls pictures which shall tell stories of mercy, hope, courage, faith and eharity. Make your living room tbe lar gest and most cheerful in the bouse. Let tho place be to cu that when your boy has gone to distant lands, or even when, per haps be clings to a single plank in thr waters of the wide ocean, the thought of the old homestead shall have come across the waters of dissolution, bringing light hope and love. Have no dungeou about your house no rooms you never open uo blinds that are always shut. Don t teacn your daogb ter French before she can weed a flower bed, or cling to a side saddle; and daogb ters do not be ashamed of the trowel or pruning knife. Bring to you- doors the richest flowers from tbe woods; cultivate tbe friendship of birds s udy botany, learn to love nature and a higher cultiva tion than tbe fashionable world can give you. The celebrated actor, Cook, arrived in this country about the time the Federal Congress held its sessions in Philadelphia A request was sent to him to play one of Sbakespeaie's tragedies before the Presi dent and Congress. Tbe eccentric actor replied to tbe persons who called on biai with the mesago : I, George Frederic Cooke, who have played before tbe Mjeit; of Great Britian I play before the King of tbe Yankeedoodles ? I'll see him d d first ! As people are a little timid about travel ing on the ice at times, we give the capaci ty of tbe Ice as furnished by tbe U. S Or dinance Department which is correct.

I A Thriluno Incident. In a lecture de livered receutly by Grace Greenwood, at Boston, on Heroism she referred to an incident that took place at tbe burning of a steamer on one of the western lakes: Among the few passengers whose cour age and presence of mind rou sope. lor to the night, was a mother, who succeeded in saving her two little children by tbe moans of a floating settee. While they were in the water, the mother saw a mtn swimming toward the settee, and, as he was about to grasp it, she cried Doa't take it from my poor children! Tbe man made no answer, yet the appeal struck home; for, by the light of the flaming ves sel, she could see that his fice was convuls ed by tho struggle between the mighty primal iustinct of nature and something better aud holier. It was hut a moment. He threw up his bands wiih a groan of renunciation, Aung himself ovor backward aud weut down. The Fair-it Christian. Imagine a fe male, who ever looks up confidingly to her God, amidst the deepest afflictions, aud houirh her heart bleeds and aches, even o - , nn'n bursting, vet wears a countenance ot - at 0 joy before the world: who changes not. Dor is distuibed by tbe Btorms otlitel wnere is her likel lu the heavonsi there appears the ralnhnw that la neithar moved bv the winds, oor obscured by the clouds, but tbloei in the atr, like tne guttering morn ing dew ol a fairer world. - What is the difference between school master and a railroad conductor T One trains tbe mind, and tho other minds the train. What Farmers Live for. Correspondence of the New York Tribune. SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Monday , Dec. 18, 1865. The fruits of Ctlifornia, nnequaled in variety aod luxuriousnens, are her surpass ing ricnes. irees are twice as large as in Now York or Ohio at tbe same aa In oneyaar the cherry has grown fourteen feet high, the pear ten feet, aud tho stems of peach trees threo inches in diameter. Uae peach tree a year from tbe bud grew eight feet high, with a trunk-circomference of eight and a half inches. A peach twig a foot loner, stuck in the round in 1858. bore fruit tbe next year. Tbe apple tree bears in the second or third year from the bud, and epplcs have been exhibited weigh ing two and a half pounds. Distinctly a Northern fruit however, reduii ing a cold climate, it has not the pungent flavor wnicn Jew England and Oregon impart. But 'he enormous peaches, tbe strawber ries whose vines produse four or five crops a year and crapes, which grow with in credible profusion, have a peculiarly rich aod generous tas e that liugers lovingly on the pala'e. Io the orchard of Wilson Flint, neir Sacramento, I taw hundreds of pear tree, seven years from the graft, bearing 60 Dounds of fruit each. At wholesale, in Winter, i'. commands from five to six cents per pound, by which weight frnits, vegeta bles and grain are invariably sold. These pears were enormous, though far from their full growth ; and Mr. Flint assures mo that they somotimos wcih two-and a half pounds each. I noticed a cluster of six, growing on one twig, almost as close as tbey could be packed in a fruit dish, and each nearly e. large as a mau's fist. This was the 28th of Angot, and the graft, which bore tbem was put in last April. It was tbe most wonderful sight of my Sum mer journey. Jonah's gouid ceases to be the symbol of miraculous growth. Io the same orchard hundred of fig trees bont under rich parple fruit. Olives, pomegranates, lemon and apricots grow in various sections. Thb orchards of the Stato contain also a'uout 2,500 orange tree?. When six or eight yea-s old they produce fruit and contiuue for half a cen tury. At 14 years they ore io full bearing, yicldiDur from 1,000 to 3,000 oraDgcs per tree. They blossom early in Spring ; the fruit Is ripe in the following Februarv, and if left cn the branches, keeps until Miy. A full grown tree is SO feet high, with dense bushy top, 9 or ten yards in diameter It requires irrigation and careful culture Mr. Flint's vineyard, only five years old, contained scores of varieties of delicious grapes, growiug in enormous clusters, sev eral bunches weighing fully five pounds each. On Gov. Low's table oni morning, was a six ponnd bunch from the Sacremen to market- Clusters weighing eight or ten pounds excite little attention, -and I am assured that a bunch of seventeen pounds was exhibited atone Fair. Two hundred varieties are cultivated ; the most delicate Malaga grapes, indeed nearly all vises from the Atlantic slope, Europe, A'ia and Africa, Boorish in this kindly soil Tbe fruit-growers begin to make raisins and preserve figs, and with the completion of the Pacific Railroad they expect to supply the Eastern markets daily with fresh crapes The crop never fuils, and is Eaid to average to tbe acre double the yield of tbe b si vineyordi of Ohio. France and Germany. The Catawba, though smaller than some varieties, excels, I think, all others in flavor. The vineyards of the State, of which more than one-third are in Los Angelos County, cover upward of 10,000 acres. The lar gest is iu Sonoma Connty, and contains 500,000 Vines. Iu 1861 the wine product was about 1,000,000 gallons, and it bos largely increased since. Many varieties of still and sparkling wines are produced, bnt iu general tbey are raw, beady, aud far less pleasaDt here than after tney reach p.ew- Yoik. The long voyage improves them greatly, aod age adds ranch to their flavor. Oni day this will be a very leading branch of commerce, and tbe wices of California will excel those of all other countries. 8 On Some Savage Customs of Great Britain In the hottest noontide of July, Eays Chamber's Journal, there is not a geutleman in England who dare walk down Regent street in the wide-awake, or other head covering adapted to the stato of the ther mometer, which he wears everywhere else except in London.

There is more than one club iu Pall Mall where it is held indecorous to bring a pipe into tbe rooking room, tbe society (of whom five sixths are pipe smokers) buing so very gen teel It is uot supposed, I believe, even by Mr. Darwin, that man originally walked backwards, and only from long practise eventually attained to bis present mode of progression. Why, then iu the presence of royalty, do we perform the stupid and dan gerous evolution of backing out cf the room? it !a surely a poor complimeut to his Ma jesty to credit It with such little sense as to be pleased with so awkward a mm- isuvre. How wonderful that folks who Co such things every day and at uigbt with lighted caudles iu their bauds could not keep their countenance when tbe Siamese ambassadors approached the steps of the throne upon all-fours I buch a proceeding was surely far more bttiug, since tbe appa rent object of both sorts of courtiers is to degrado themselves to the level of the beusls. II jw blind, however, woe n be to our own absurdities, while intolerant to 'hose of our neighbors, was never more clearly shown than on a late occasion, when a learned and what Is cinch better, a gen erally sensible judge found fault with a (Quaker for keeping bts bead eovered io court.

New York, last November, wounding several persons and blowiog ont the frootof the Wyoming Hotel, and also another iu San Francisco lately causing the death of eight or ten persons, and tbe damage of property to the value of $200,000 Glycerine is the sweet principle of oil, and is extensive ly used for the purposes of the toilet; bnt it has now received an application of rath er an unexpected nature. In 1847 a pu pil of M. Pelouze, M. Sobrero, discovered that glycerine, whoa treated with nitric acid, was converted luto a highly explo sive subBtauoo which he called uitro glycer ine. It is oily, heavier than water, soluble in alcohol or other, and acts so powerfully on the nervous system' that a single drop placed on tbe tip of the tongue willcanje violent headache which will last several hours The liquid t eeuis to have been al most forgotten by chemists, and it is only now that M Nable. a Sweedish enzineer. na, succeeded to applying it to a very im portant branch of bis art namely, hint ing. Fioma paper addrossed by bim to the Academy of Science, we bear that the dis advantage that this substance, composed of one part of glycerine aod three parts of nitric acid, possesses, is, that it requires a much smalle - bole or chamber than gunpow der docs, the ttrentrth of the latter beintr only one toh of the former. Hence tbe miner's work, which, according to the hard Dess of the rock, represents five to twenty times tbe power of the genpowder used; in liort the cost of b lasting Is often re duced by 50 per cent. The process is very easy, if tbe chamber of the mine present fiisures, it must be lined with clay to make wator tight; this being done, tbe nitro glycerine is poured in, the water after it, which boing tbe lighter liquid remained at the top. A slow raa cu with a well charged perception cap at one and is then introduced into the Ditro glycerine. Tbe mine may then be sprung by lighting the match, as there is no nee j of tamping. On the 1th of June last, experiments were made with this new compound iu tbe open part of tbe tin mines of Altenburg in Sax ony. io oue of these aehamber of 34 mill imeters in diameter was made perpen dicularly in a dolomitic rock 60 feet long, long, and at a distance of 14 feet from its extremity which was vertical. At a depth ofeightfeeta vault filled with clay was found, in consequenco of which the bottom of the hgle was tamped, having a depth of seven feet. One litro and one half cf ui tro glycerine was thei pourod io; it occu pied five feet; a match and a stopper were tbeu applied, as stated, and the mine then cprnog. ihe effect was so enormous as to fissure fifty feet long, and another twenty feet- The blastiog oil of M. Nabel is a chem ical compound of six equivalents of carbon, five equivalents of hydrogen, three equiv alents of oxygen, and three of nitric acid, expressed scientifically by tbe formula: C6H5 03 (NO)3 Practically it is a composition of 15 per cent, of nitric acid and 25 per centum of glycerine oil. A scientific calculation of the volume of gases developed by tbe combustion of this compound, aod tbe combustion of good gunpowder, proves that nitroglycerine compared with gunpowder possesses thir teen times its power, when volumes are compared, and eight tim s its power for equal weight. Therefore, where are csed pounds of gunpowder, one pound of nitro glycerine will be suCcieiit to produce the same effect. Inside a Printing Office.
