'Twas a calm still night, and the moon's pale light, Shone soft o'er hill and vale, When friends mute with grief stood around the death bed Of my poor lost Lilly Dale. Oh ! Lilly, sweet Lille, dear Lilly Dale, Now the wild rose blossoms o'er her little green grave, Neath the trees in the flow'rv vale. Her cheeks that once glowed, with the rose tint of health. By the hand of disease had turned pale, And the death damp was on the pure while brow Of my poor lost Lilly Dale. Oh ! Lilly, sweet Lilly, Ac. "I go," she said, "to the land of rest," And ere my strength shall fail, I must tell you where, near my own loved home, You must lay poor Lilly Dale. Oh ! Lilly, dear Lilly, Ac. Neath the chestnut tree ; where the wild flow ers grow, And the stream ripples forth through the vale, Where the birds shall warble their songs in spring, Thero lay poor Lilly Dale. Oh ! Lilly, dear Lilly, &c. Eloquent Extract. The follawing benutiful comparison is from a lecture recently delivered at St. Louis by T. F. Meagher: "One fair morning, towards the close of the summer, I stood in a field that overlooked the Hudson. I was struck with the glowing ripe ness of the fruit which waved around me, and broke into an expression of delight. It seemed to me the most glorious I had seen in any clime the most glorious the earth could bring forth. "That seed,' said one who stood by, 'came from Egypt." "It had been buried in the tomba of Kings and lain with the dead for three thousand years. But though wrapped in the shroud, and locked within the pyramids, it died not. It lived in the silence lived in the darkness liv ed with death itself and now that the dust of the King has been disturbed that they have been called and moved not that bandages are removed and they open not their eyes behold the seed gives forth life and the fields rejoice n Us glory. "And thus it is, that the energies, the in stiaets, the faith, aad the vitalities which have been eh rushed elsewhere in those virgin soils revive, and that whieh seemed mortal, becomes imperishable. And thus it is, that even here, (the seed will multiply, and, borne back to the ancient land, will people the places that are des tflatej the wilderness shall be made glad.

An Extraordinary Narrative Indian Una a at l aVfPCTllnnlf The following letter, aja the S. W. Amer ican, ia from a gentleman connected with the government tervice on our frontiert.

Alt our Lite accounta eon6rm the fact, than aince the ramr- ; ore were disbanded the Indians are e netting their predatory iafaiai with atarming fre quency. Font Caooaaa, Tea, April 7, IMS. I have juet reiarned from one of the moat arduous and exciting aeouta I bare ever made. We had been robbed here twice by the Indi ana within faur months. The kat time on the night of lha 13.h of March. They taok down a panael of my stable lot and let oat nine of ny Cunt horses. It was one of the darkest and most blustery nights of the season, and the roDDcry must hare been commuted between 9 bad 10 o'clock. The next morning I atartcd with seventeen men in pursuit. Failing to die cover a trail, I proceeded to the post on the head of the clear Fork of the Brazos, thence to the Indian agency half way between 1'han- tom Hill and Belknap. Up to thi point I could hear nothing of the robbery, except the opin ion entertained by the agent, Mr. Stem, and ail the friendly Indians which concurred with my own that the robbery had been committed by witcneias. While at the agency a party of that tribe, undtr their principal war-chief, came in to sur render some stolen horses they had previously promised to Stem they would do. The horses they brought in were so indifferent and broken down that it was evident they were acting in had faith, and that this was Only intended as a subterfuge. I was not disposed to be trifled with in this manner ; the agent had also lost all patience with them. It was accordingly agreed to detain the chief and the principal portion of his party consisting of nine war riors and several women as hostages, until the whole of the property recently stolen should be brought in. Mr. Stem announced to them our determination, and told (hem I meant to carry tbcm to Belknap and hold iliem as prisoners, permitting two of their number to return to their tribe and convey the "talk" we had give them. Though I fully expected "a break" on the announcement, which would result in the death of Mr. Stem or myself, or both, indeed I would not have insured cither of our lives at 100 per centum we were compelled to face the danger with apparent indifference. Any man ifestation of fear or suspicion would have in creased the chances of thtir resorting to the desperate alternative of "a rush" for liberty, plunging their knives into whomsoever inter rupted their passage. As soon as I had told them they were pris oners, I rose from the bear skin upon which I had been sitting facing them, and mounted my horse, at the same drawing my pistol, and mo- uoiunir tneat to 90 to their camp, ihe ( !.i si requested that I should dismount, that he wished to speak. I did so, and took a seat on a stool near by. He motioned me to sit in my former position on the ground. I did so, at the same lime drawing my knife, under pre tence of cutting looacco to smoke, tie rose, addressed a few remarks to me about the UiflS-, ultv of restraining his young men from steal ing, &c, and suggesting that it would be bet ter that he should return to his tribe. This I refuted. He then seemingly yielded to his fate, approaching me and seizing me by the hand, lifted me from the ground and embracing me, first pointed to heaven and to ourselves, to in dicate that the Great Spirit witnessed the pro- j ceeding. I told them I would not hold them 1 as close prisoners, but merely guard against their escape, by placing sentinels around their camp. Meantime I encamped my command near theirs, and took from them all the arms I could find. Tbey retired quietly to their tents at dark, manifesting not the slightest intention of an attempt to escape The moon shone as bright as day. I had posted two distinct guards over them, of six men each, with our sentinels. I had been up and moving about camp until twenty minutes be fore twelve. At 12, the sentinels were releiv ed. The sentinel posted more immediately over their camp, had come near one of their tents to count the number present, while the corporal of the guard, the old sentinel and a citiaen who had accompanied me, stood near looking on. Suddenly one of the Indians rush ed from his seat toward the sentinel, and pre senting a pistol, fired. This seemed to be the signal for a general "break." As the sentinel turned to retreat up the slope toward his com panions, the chief Ko-we aka, rushed from his tent, threw himself upon the back of the re treating sentinel, and with his knife inflicted several wounds before he was shot down by the old sentinel. The rest succeeded in effecting their escape, running in different directions and answering the shots fired at them with yells of de fiance. The Chief, as was discovered, on search ing the tents, had purposly sacrificed himself, his wife, and boy seven years old. The wife and child whom he had requested the evening before to talk to, and give them assurance of their safety, were found lying in their tent side by side, as if in deep sleep, both stabbed to the heart. The wife had consented to her fate, as wo were informed by two old women, who had attempted to escape. 8he seemed to have received the fatal blow without a struggle both were carefully cover ed up to the breast, the child lying upon its mother's arm. The Chief's moccasins were found near their heads a sign, the Indians toi'd us, that he did not mean to leave the spot alive. Nothing in romance or history that I have ever ica( approximates to this act ot ue votion and Belf--irifiee. Cooper could never have ventured to pint such a scene.

Hit Ai i b lloi-bc Lajard the explorer of Nineva who is as fa -milliar with Arabs as he it with antiquities give in hi lata work on Assyria tome carious detailt respecting the true bom of the desert Contrary to the popular notion the Arabian is celebrated leu for nnri vailed twiftn than for extraordinary power of tadgranae. iu usual paces are but two, a quick walk oftrn averaging; um ur nve mnes an uour anu a nail runnin ' canter ; for only when purtued does a Bedouia put his mare to full speed. It ia the distance they will travel in emergency, the weight they will carry and the comparative trifle of food they require which render the Arrabian horse t tz 1 - 1 1 , , . so valuable. Layard aiys that he knew of a celebrated mare which had carried two men in chain armor beyond the reach of tome Aneyza pursuers. Thit mare rarely had more than twelve handsfull of barley in twenty hours ex cept in the Spring, when the pastures were green ; and it is only the mares of wealthy Be douns that can get even this allowance." The consequence is that except in the Spring the Arab horse is lean and unsightly They are ) j. IT ' uccr uineeu uuuer cover uunng summer ; nor protected from the biting blast of the desert in -unci. iuc attuuie is rareiy ias.cn irom their backs. Cleaning and grooming are strangers to them. They sometimes reach fifteen hands in height and never fall below fourteen. In disposition they are a docile as lambs requiring no guide but a halter ; yet in the flight or pur" suit their nostrils become blood red their eyes glitter with fire the neck is arched and the mane and tail raised and spread out to the wind ; the whole animal becomes transformed. The vast plains of Mesopotamia furnish the best brteds and these breeds are divided into five races of which the original stock was the Koheyleh. The most famous belong either to the Shammer or to the Anoyzt tribes. The nedioroes are kept, scrupulously and their value is so great that a thorough bred mare is genr r- ally owned by ten or even more persons. It is not often that a real Arabian can he purchased, 1 he reason is that 011 account of its fleelneRs and power of endurance it is inval uable to the in defy nny Bedoun, who once on its back, can defy pursuer except a Shammer or Aneyza with swifter or stronger marc than his own.

If mnntrn his lat exoeditioa which failed so die- work. Where thorough bred mares have been 1 m - sold, they have brought as high as six thousand dollars; but these it is understood are notthe 'best of the race. The Arab who selh his ; mare can do nothing with his gold, and cannot ven keep it, lor the next Bedoun of a hostile tribe who comes across his path, and who has retained his mare, will take it from him and de- I fy pursuit. Layard thinks that no Arabian of the best blood has ever been seen in England. ; If this so, we can scarcely suppose that any j have come to America, but must believe the so called Arrbians, gievn to the Government, i at various times to be inferior breeds. Rarely, indeed are the thorough breeds found beyond j the desert. It will be a subject of regret, to muse who aunure nne norses 10 learn mat tne Arabian is considered to be degenerating, the consequence of the subjugation of Arabia, and the decline of Bedoun triber.

Clermont Courier. 'And on he trudged, not knowing what ho sought, But whistled as he went for want oi thought." A whistler is a nuisance ; we hare one near by, whom we advise to "save his breath to cool his porridge." Hail Columbia is his favorite lune, and he does not even break the monotony by whistling the variations. A happy man nev er whistles; a busy man never whistles; a thoughtful man never whistles ; a musical man never whistles ; tbey sing. But find a lazy, indolent, empty-beaded fellow, whose sole em ployment it doing nothing, and vou will find a whistler ; in him what should be substance ia wind, and a constant stream issues from hia mouth. A man whistles when he is mad ; when he has the horrors ; when he is drunk ; when he is out of money ; out of friends ; ont at the elbows ; out of patience ; out of work. and out of courage. Whistling is a narrow. contracted, puckering buttinttt ; you whistle out bad feelings, but sing out good ones , there fore never whistle, always sing. Cite. Herald. Excitement in Cambridge.

On Friday last, as the story goes, a student from New York made an anti-slavery speech two hour and a quarter in length, in which he used expressions that excited the hot blood of his Southern as sociates. The result was that, on Monday, a student from Maryland sent a message to the New Yorker, challenging him to mortal combat. Another son of the State- bore the challange. About this time the faculty got ts hear of tho affair, and took measures to prevent a duel.
