We have recently met the following poem, and have secured it for our paper aa still of in terest to the people, though treating of events that have now passed into history. It was written with special reference to the Congres sional Campaign of I860, in Minnesota, and was there read before a number of political audiences, though constantly refused the press. The allusions made to Grant and Colfax will make it particularly interesting at this time when they stand so prominently before the na tion, as candidates tor its two highest offices. You see old statues by the masters made Where beauty carved in marble cannot fade : . White, stony, rigid in their changeless mould. Tbey stand in peerless beauty perfect, cold. Though years roll into ages, still the same They stand in changeless lines proclaiming fame. Yet though so cold and lifeless, stark and dead, . To bring them forth, great fires most be fed With oil fey midnight burnt, that sap the lira Of some racked brains, half crazed am.d the strife To form a life-work ages hence might see Their names to speak, though they bad ceased to be. Ail living in his soul the statue grew. But, lasting there.alone, the sculptor knew That it existed only as his warm And throbbingbrain could hold its graceful form. Or course, he made it less fur men to buy. Than to prevent its loss, if he should die. But this is not the thing that I would speak of. Sjuie people seem, to have a woudrons freak of Supposing that a chiseling .from granite Merely a shapely stone to those who scan it Existed in the ledge before 'twas chiseled. As woman's hair was hair before 'twas rlzzled. Thebeanty of the brain that formed the picture Is lost when criticism leans to stricture. 'Twas not the ledge that stares' so blankly at you. But 'twas the sculptor's braiu that held the statue. ' j So the thing man, is viewed by many people ' As they would see a house, or bam, or steeple ; Not by the rich design that Nature gavj it. But as a barber views bee to shave it ; The nature or the skin, the size of beard. The shape of tooth, the figure how 'tis reared. The. strength of voice, the arm if graceful moved ' IT those are right it only need be proved. In order to receivelt in society, ir it can wear good clothes with due propriety. It matters not what God has made the brain or. That is a thing that no one would complain jf. But when I look at statues cut from marble. I see the brain there, not composite garble. ' I love to see the ideal in a painting Where blended colors into colors Tainting Speak soul as well as art-; and men I view Aa all so different and all so new. Each with a separate thought and different mind And giving scope for study each to find. We know a statue with an hoar's study. Bnt. in an hour can you learn a body f Man is a statue with a living soul. That soul you learn before you learn the whole. To learn a soul you hare to study actiona. As boys work up to logarithms through fractions ; For actions tell the motions of the mind Since acts must have a prompter of :nc kind So when you look at men to learn their nature You find yourself all lost until you bate your Hot fiery impatience to discover Through eyes or lips, through lights or shades, that hover Around a man,the thoughts that may possess him But when you've done your best, you only guess him. That men are land-crabs has been demonstrated. Not that they bite and snap as has been stated That crabs and crabbed natures are inclined to. But that tbey. move like crabs like them seem blind too; For if a great or little end thsy seek They llauk it in a right or left oblique ; ' . Soma Pat would give it with an Irish bull Go forwards backwards, or in pushing pull." Such men 1 think or, and I would describe them They say they're honest, but you'll easy bribe them In offering money, flattery or love. Or giving them in politics a shove That may secure them through your goose-quill's nib A chance to forage at the public crib. Y'et some are struggling with an honest zest To gain position where they'll shin ; the best. But even these will seldom go straight for it - hey'U learn the law by reading "Little Dorritt." Redeeming swamp, and making useful land on't ou must do more than simply go and stand on't. It docs nut do to merely read up books But yon must grub, and sweat, and ply your hooks. This growing great in any grade or station Requires a long and quite severe probation. By courting Fortune you can never rally her. No gun can shoot beyond its native calibre. To make a high and holy purpose ours Will tax onr energies, and tax our powers. Y'ou cannot hope to leap the stieaiu you ford it. ou cannot fly along the road you plod it. When once you make up your determination hen push on steadily, without elation. Your eye upou your goal, your footstep steady," For every trial that may meet you ready. But now before I tell my touching story Bear with me iu a bit of allegory Since I would show you how a purpose formed With high intention by ambition warmed And nurtured in the breast with impulse stately May prove to be quite worthless, as we've lately Discovered in the fate of one poor atatesmau Who I' ft his party and became the gates man Betw een his people and the res! of them To tum to ruin all the best of them. Pocr Lane yon think of and you say, "detestable !" But when you come to try yourself you're best able To judge to what degree 'tis safe to urge a man To push ahead even though he be a clergyman. ou may see some position and call that a gem Which would repay you in all sorts of stratagem ; But "look before you leap," aud "count the cost," To see how you would stand in case you Ust. The ways most sure to win, I'll bet a guinea are Those ways the nearest to the rectilinear. Then make your aim an object to be proud of. And one that future poets will sing loud of. But now I've snapped at all these thoughts that round did He, And left my allegory most confoundedly. The Two Feathers. AN ALLEGORY. See, poised in air above the earth, two birds, Both looking down upon poor plodding can Who delves below. On e has a piercing eye. rnblaiiclied, though fixed upon the midday sun. He, proud and dangerous, with steady nerve. Plucks from his wing a quill to drop to earth. Down through the air the feather whirls its way And lights on one who struggles on for lame! Flushed with the spirit of the bird or Jove, And looking up as to the throne or God, The color deepening in his sallow cheek. And Are rekindling in his sunken eye. Thus writes be with the pen the eagle gavo : I. Soar, soar proud bird, to thine eyrie bold, Where cliffs are sharp, and winds blow cold ! Thou enrest not for the dizzy height, But carryest upward, lill, thy flight ! O bird of power, Though clouds may lower, . And men may cower, Thou risest near to the throne of God To tread the air that the great have trod. II. Soar, soar, my soul as the eagle soars Though storms may rise and ocean roars ; Men's hearts may quaU at thy giddy height Thou leav'st them there in their mental night ! What's eafth to fnec,- Or things to be, So thou art free . To rise on high toward the throne of God, And tread the steps that the great hve trod ! The other gentle as the heart of her Who nursed and loved the Sav ior of the world Witlt love soft beaming from hrf gentle eif e As searching for some bosom, where in peace She safe might nestle, faraway from him Whose lightning swoop, so terrible and dread. Might tear away the palpitating lire. That pants within her heart for all that love : Still poised in air, she from her snowy wing Plucks forth a quill, and drops it to the earth ; And, as it circles through the humid air. She murmurs forth a gentle, loving prayer That virtue with it may descend to earth, - And trusting love to God, and good to men. Might fill the heart of him whose pious hand Should write, the world to read. the gracious words Or "peace on earth and good will to all men." I. My gentle dove I love thee. With thine eye so soft, and thy breast so white And love like Christ's above thee, light : Who came down from God with a heavenly He came to redeem the lost, And his life he gave, the cost. To teach the poor soul, buried deep in dross That he might look up and behold the cross Like those who died of the bite Of sin, like the Israelite, Might look up and sec, not the vengeful rod, But the dove of peace on the hand of God. II. So heart like his above thee, With the dearest love, for the sake of God, Work thou that Christ may love thee, trod, Though the earth may scoff when thy feet have Not the way tne eann uesires, Where his wicked heart aspires But to reach for gold, or for earthly fame But to sacred scenes, to secure a name As the man who loves his Lord, And would have his name adored By the weary man who Is worn with sin, And to place a heaven. where a hell has been So write my pens, one coarse, and strong, and grand. That through the air far toward the blazing sua Had borne the eagle in his flight of pride : The other as a tiny wand of light. So frail, and small, and bright, and beautiful. The light and graceful dove had rested -on To coo her love, that reached the ear of bin Who loved his gentle mate, and yet was heard By Him who lulei the Universe of LI jht. Now that I've finished up my little parable I leave you to decide which is most fair, able To choose which you prefer you stand he fore 'em" Select with care, and do it with decorum Which shall it be, the pulpit oi the forum ? J Some simple men have had such wondrous fancies For playing politics, but with wild dances T iey follow t e in, as one that wa ild be gr a, or They strive each one to be an innovator. But such a man, you see him and see through him. And even little news-boys will pooh, pooh, him I If like Jeff Davis one should pUy the victim And plead with all the world because it kicked him, Complaining that he constat tly grew thinner Because he had no truffles for his dinner : Or if, like Johnson, showing his enamel, he Should constantly revert to his poor family. And how be sewed on buttons years ago. And now he's President make much ado ; And say he's honest when we knew to win he meant Eaeh time he smeared the copperheads with liniment : Or turn upon his party like poor Beecher, Descending to a paltry rebel preacher: Or like Doolittle play the sentimental : Such are not worth a single continental I For such a man according to the fit he's In Will be a safe or very dangerous citizen. You'd better be a mummy in a show-case Than prove yourself a miserable dingh-faee! But on the other hand you see a man -Who loves his country and docs all he can To make it great to hold Its noble flag np And boasts his nation, not bimseir to brag up. ne does not spend his time and give bis speeches (The tailors word to rhyme with that is breeches) Iu fighting out the question, "Which the lies Shall have the greatest place, or staring I's !" But earnestly and like a man who means it. Or soft as to the child the nurse who weans it. Ha strives to do what good shall last the longest And what shall make his nation's flag the strongest Now And two men like these and pnt together One has a conscience tender, one of 1 eather, One is a patriot, rejoicing in it, and The qther is in politics a minute hand. The one is Arm, his brain, when you discern it, you're Reminded of some grand, old polished furniture.

Impeachment has become rather a cold sub ject; but our readers may like to read an cxcel- leut summary of the grounds of complaint as has been written. The editor of the Lulrpemlent, was on the ground, a vigilant observer of the proceedings throughout, aud here is his accouut of the whole scene, and although it should have been put before our readers a weekor two ago, we think it will pay perusal : CONSPIRACY IN THE SENATE. The storm of indi""iiation which rases in V ashmgton against f essenden and Trumbull is not on account of their votes against impeachment, but ou account of their concealment and deception pre vious to those votes. No just man would condemn either of these gentle men, or any of their associates, for ren dering a verdict according to his indi vidual conscience, however such a ver dict might be out of harmony with pop ular sentiment. But never iu the legis lative experience of the oldest Senator was such a trick played on the Senate as that by which Fefsendcn deceived his own colleague, Morrel ; Trumbull his own colleague, Yates; Henderson his own colleague, Drake; Ross his own colleague, l'otneroj-. After the close ot Jjingliain s argu ment, a majority oi the Court desired to proceed, atttr a brief consultation to a hiial vote, lo this r essonuen objected, in a speech which, for a man of his unvelvoty temperament, was unusu ally aud unconstitutionally bland asking tor a delav on the ground that he had not yet made up his judgment; that during the whole trial lie had endeavored to keep his mind open ; that Imghani had presented several points wtu.li were novel and worthy of iurther' considera tion ; and that he wished au oiMxirt uni ty, quietly and at home, to re-examine the argument and evidence. After this speech, Morrel, his colleague, went round irotn desk to desk m the senate Cham ber, and privately begged for this indul gence to his colleague, expressing at the same time great confidence that 1 essen den' views would be found ot uuch out of harmony with the views oi the majority of his friends. A brief delay was accordingly granted ; alter which, on Monday, May 11th, the .Senators were to compare views in secret ses sion, and on Tuesday, May, 12th, to vote in open court. During Monday's comparison of views, to the amazement of all the impeaching Senators, but to the perfect knowledge of the copper heads and their allfes, Mr. Fessenden delivered a manuscript sptech volumi nous, elaborate, and technical-one of the most pains-taking and long-wrought pa pers which he ever produced a piece of composition which, in the judgment oi his brother Senators, took him many days to prepare, refine and polish. This unexpected document instantly produced upon the minds of his compeers the pain ful but unavoidable conviction that he had solicited a delay, not for the sake of settling his mind, but for the sake of polishing his periods. Such a piece of sharp practice had not been expected from a man possessing as much pride of of honor, as Fessendeu ; and it failed his associates with mingled surprise, sorrow, and indiguation. Meanwhile, Trumbull had bceu play ing a similar game. After telling his colleague, Yates, that he had prepared nothing at all, he rose twenty minutes afterwards and gavo one of the mst elaborate of Ilia speeches, delivering it with such tremor in his voice and such pallor iu his countenance as to betray unwonted and almost unnatural excite ment, A thunderbolt falling through the glass roof of the Senate Chamber would not have more surprised the Sen ate than Trumbull's announcement .of his position. Down to the very last mo ment b' bai successfully cajoled his most'intimate friends among the Illinois members of the Lower House, who, after his speech, were so shocked by his de ceitful behavior toward themselves that hey almost entirely forgot thej great injury which he was inflicting on the country. Ross of Kansas repeatedly and sol emnly assured his colleague, down to iiie very last day before the vote, and repeated the assurance to various other Senators and members, that he would vote-for conviction on the first, second, third' and eleventh articles a pledge, which he so suddenly and so strangely broke by acquitting the President that the whole city of Washington, ou Satur day last, was in three hours Hll.rl with charges of his positive aud downright corruption for money. Henderson, as we learn, is to be con fronted with affidavits alleging that ho had positively agreed to vote for the eleventh article" a- promise by which, if he kept it, he would have delivered the nation from its chief incubus. . Fowler, who has lately worn the coun tenance of a man more crazy than sane. led his Tennessee friends (except Patter- Bon) to suppose, down to Saturday morn ing, that he might vote for conviction. Certainly no man in the nation was more fierce for impeachment than Fowler in January last. iS or lias any other Sena tor, by Ins Saturday's verdict, so thor oughly, and irredeemably stultified hira self os this' wretched man. Van Winkle, of West Virginia, pre pared and read to three Radical Sana- tors a speech iu support of the elevei.th article and vet voted against the article. Grimes stands conspicuous as an hon- oraiuo exception among these conspira tors.. He was openly and frankly op posed to impeachment, aud never deceiv ed anybody with the idea that he was going to vote with the Republicans. tne suuilen paralysis which so unexpect edly crippled his frame occasioned among all circles of opinion the most hearty sympathy. it is difficult for people at a distance to understand the intense feeling which now prevails in Washington, except in view of the dishonorable conduct which we have thus described. Ihe old vet erans of the Senate Chamber have been as much accustomed to losing as win ning battles. The loss of the Eleventh Article, if it had been beaten honorably would ot course have excited great sor row, but no indirration. Senators have ust asv much right to vote against as to vote tor a measure. lSut the Senate has been cruelly and basely deceived bv men whom it trusted and honored. It is for this reason that the present wrath rages. Better let the radicals " loose a thousand impeachments than achieve a single one by imitating the unworthy means which their oppon ents employed to secure last Saturday s A Strange Story. DISCOVERY OF A CAVERN ON THE PALISADES The Metropolitan lkeord has a correspon dent who writes to that journal to say : "I am the discoverer of au immense cavern in the Palisades of the Hudson, fully one mile iu length, and at least half a mile wide, with a vaulted roof, higher than that of Innity Chnrch, supported by innumerable pillars, which must have been erected by the Hand ot man many centuries since, aud furnished with in numerable side recesses, ante-chambers, and long winding passage of the most wonderful construction. Ruins of what have evidently been altars, erected thousands of years ago, are abundant, together with the moul dering bones of beings of enormous stat- . as if belonging to a race of giants that formely inhabited the caith. The floors of this remarkable cavern are as smooth and hard as granite, though coveted deep with the dust ot centuries. Hero and tl ere a lower aeep is aiscerna blo through the all-prevading gloom, with spacious stone steps leading there to. From these mysterious cavities the sound f rushing waters fall upon the ear, witn other reveroerauons oi a Btrange, unearthly character. The cav- rn. it is manifest, is not, like the Kcn- tncky cave, a freak of nature, but as al ready conjectured, the work of man, in some early period of the "world's history. Cabalistic signs cover the bases of some of the pillars, while figures bearing a close resemblance to sphinxes, death's heads, and mummies, as if iLgiptian de sign, adorn various portions of the walls and roof. It is certainly passing Strang that the existence of this remarkable subterranean palace (for it richly de serves the name) should have so long remained a profound mystery, lying as it does close to the most popular city ic America. Its grassy roof, even now onstitutes the favorite playground of thousand of unsuspecting school scnu- ilren, as well as the lavonto resort ot innumerable picnic parties on summer afternoons. Its mode ot discovery ry myself was as follows : W andering along the Palisade ridsies one afternoon last summer, for recreation aud study, I sat Is- ... . 1 down to rest myseii under tne snaciow of a tree. Immediately afterwards a couple of rabbits darted past me, and the endeavor to captnre them brought me to a small crevice in the hill, partially concealed by a clump ot shrubbery. In to this ciovice the animals a. r.eo, ami rootinffun the shrubbery in order to dislodge them, judge of my su prise on discovering an opening apacmus eniraju to admit of the entrance of a man's body. A feeling of' fear at first crept over me, and I looked around to see if any person was near, to help me examine the place ; but not a soul at the 'time was within calling distance ; and so, after recover ing my self-possession a little, I resolved to look in not, however, without some serious misgivings as to the possible presence of some huge anaconda that might deprive me of my head. Grad ually mustering courage, I went in to my surprise discovered that the further I went the wider grew the aperture. My conrage, however, had been severely Usted, and after making such observa tions as the darkness and close atmos phere would J ' mit. I groped back to the light of day, and carefully closed up the entranco to the place, mentally resolv ing to return next day to pursue my ex plorations. My first impulse was t6 communicate the secret to some friend in whom I could confide ; but the re flection that the cave might contain hid den treasure, which in that casfe would have to be divided!,- persuaded me that it were best to keep the discovery private. The next day was stormy, and I did not go, but, providing myself with a dark lantern, on the following mornino-1 re newed my research, with what results, exciting my wonder and amazement, you are already informed. From that day to this my explorations have" been on an averatre once a wp..1t m,i. in termitted by ill health. Every succeed ing visit reveals something new, and the marvels of to-day are qrtite thrown into shadeby the yet more startling discov eries which break on the eye and ear to morrow. A remarkable circumstance which I have forgotton to note is, that the atmosphere in the body ofthe cav ern is perfectly pare, .though I have not been able to discover any outlet or inlet for ventilation, apart from the orifice throngh which I obtained ingress. My theory is, that the rushing waters in the sub-cavern furnish the means of renew ing the atmosphere. There are small pools of salt water imbedded, in the floor ot the cavern, bnt no fish inhabit them. For that matter, indeed, no signs of ani mal life are visible, in all that dark, de serted mansion ; a death-like silence reigns, broken only by the wall of the before mentioned unseen waters in- the recesses beneath. It Pleases God. God has marked implicitness and simplicity of faith with peculiar approbation. He has done this throughout the Scriptnres, and he is do ing it daily in the -Christian li.fe. An unsuspecting, unquestioning, unhesita ting spirit He delights to honor. He does not delight in a eredulous, weak and unstable mind. Ho gives ns full evi dence when he calls and leads; but He expects to find in us what he himselt bestows an open ear and a disposed heart. Though He gives ns not the evi dence of seuse, he gives rxi such evidence as w:ll be heard by an open ear, and followed by a disposed heart. "Thomas, because thou hast seen me thou hast be lieved : blessed are they who have not seen, and yet have believed." We are witnesses of what an open ear and dis posed heart will do in men ofthe world. It wealth is their pursuit ; if a place pre sents itself before them ; if their persons, families, and affairs are the object, a whisper, a hint, a probability, a mere chance, is a sufficient ground of action. It is this very state of mind with regard to religion which God deligts in and honors. He seems to put forth. His hand and to say, "Put thine hand into mine ; follow my leading ; keep thyself atten tive to every turn." Cecil. To Prevent Animals from Jumping Fjsnces. Various devices have been rer sorted to in order to prevent such tres passes, and especially in regard to sheep, but none-have succeeded, or only in a limited degree. Now we have a new onr, and if it is not cruel or painful, or will not greatly discommode the animal operated upon, and is a remedy, we can see no objection in employing it. It is to "cup off the eyelashes ot the under lids with a pair of scissors, and the abili ty or disposition to jump is as effect ually destroyed as Sampson s power was by the loss of his locks. The animal will not attempt a fence again until the eyelashes are grown." This fact has been promulgated by that dsitinguished breeder of cattle, Mr. Samuel Thome, of Dutchess county, N. 1., who states that he tested it upon a very breaehy pair of oxen, with entire success, lie considers a knowledge ot this fact of great value to himself, and bepes it will prove so to others Exchange. We give the above for what it i3 worth, though we doubt the statement. Female Reporters. The anniversa ry meetings at Aew lork last weet brought up some extraordinary things, and among the most remarkable weni three females reporters. The Women's) Rights Convention was attended by three ladies, the reportorial representa tives of Woman's Rights newspapers for dfTrent parts of the country. Two' ot the three were strong-minded bloom ers and the other had discarded hoops' and "sich," aud appeared in a meek, re tiring dress. The Sun reporter gives the following spicy description of tho force at work. "Miss Ada Fessenden Craig, of Chi cago, was garbed iu tight fitting black silk pants, green silk double breasted vest, and gray paletot, which reached a little pelow her hips. When she got warm at her wprk, 6he opened her paletot, ci ossed her legs placing her" right foot on her left knee, and upon the elevated limb was placed her paper", and plied her calling with the utmost noii chalengc. The other was dressed in orange colored silk silk Knickerbocker pants, loose vest, and a flowing tunic tightened around the waist. The Knick erbocker pants are finished by -elastics, the remainder of the leg (a very brown by the wav) encased in thin flesh color-' ed skin light 6tockings.
