Sighed ah 1 well 1
We grieve far our hapless sister dying,

And forgot their haploss sister Ij ing

But gaily danoed eaoh sunny day
In "every zephyr that came that way.
Hal there came ft blast from the northern hoarei
A-- One stormy night;
And it wildly wailed through the old trees branches

Beside thoir hapless sister dying;
Strewn on tho earth so wot and cold

Strangely those massive piles of brick,, and dust
and smoke of thronged citios, strike the eye of one
cradled amid the level forests of the w estern world.
Strange nppcar their forms ; habits castes and
grades. Mysterious and bewildering that living
moving nias of animated matter of rushing active
life, which crowd every avenue of those thronged
and "bustling streets. They tmh indiscriminately
blended, the wealthy and gay clad in tho robes of
grandeur ; their soft white hands giving evidence
that they are not of those who "toil, and strike the
sounding blow ;" and the lowly and strickon ones
of earth, who dwell where luxury never shone per
chance without one friendly face save Gods alono
all these mingled together thread those great broad
theatres of life and action. Strangest of all is the
deep mysterious interpretation society has forced
upon youth's pure impulse and natures spontaneous
gush; and teaching us to suppress the heart s mi
pulsive promtings and become sordid and conven
tional. Iitire beggar and banker meet ; .priests
and lawyers, doctors and private gentlemeu passed

stretched for a tythe of charity. Some passed her
by unheeding, others with bitter curse and ribald
jest bid her begone. Perhaps she was an unworthy
object upon which to lavish the charities of a people;
cerchatice she leads a life of infamy or crime ; but
still it was sadly strange to see her there exposed to
insult, threading the streets of that busy city; no
home had she wbore she might direct her Bteps
none to teach of the worth of life and reputation
Those from whom she received her first'impressions
must have failed to teach of her capabilities and
responsibilities ; or she proved traitor to the lesson
She once perchance was cherished as a favorite
plant, and would not her former friends blush
recognise her clad in the tattered aud unwashed
garments of the beggar woman. But enough
this moralising. Strange to us appeared their
jaUs, penitentiaries and usylums, each thronged
with their peculiar inmates; some looking the very
picture of despair others the very embodiment
crime. Prisoners were there some with heads
silvered by the fioft of three score and ten winters;
others in the full Mourn of manhood ; endowed
physical perfection ; but their harsh and unrelent
ing countenances giving evidence that they were
wedded to the brotherhood of crime. Some by
careful and judicious treatment might be led gently
back to tho path of rectitude ; and if pointed
lifes high truth and beauty and its tangled
and mysterious paths, might yet live the life
of . the righteous, and their remaining days
happy. But the dignity of "the law" must
preserved ; nuuo w ill condescend to lisp that little
word iu kindness spoken, that motion or that tear
which has power, to heal a heart that is b'oken
stir up the deeper, di viner nspiration of the better
iiature ; till it has triumphed over the hardnetis
of the bitter crime thoughts that reign within.
We left with new thoughts and great strange doc

instruments of deulh, and the sweet strains

. emote strangely upon the auditory nerves.
Columns of huge ennnon lay about us ; cannon
balls and bomb-shells were stacked with the most
orderly precision. Many that we looked upon had
scattered death and desola.ion over the ill-fated
plains of Mexico. Perchance it was beside one
these that tho Mexican Yimena knelt to administer
' the cooling draught to the lips of the dying soldier;
wbea she saw th northern eagle shining in
v pistol belt, she turned tearfully away fur lie
her nation's enemy. But she heard the youth's
' low moaning and his breath of struggling pain.
And she raised the cooling water to his parching
lips again, lie thanked her but his words were
uttered in a strange aud northern tongue.

deep true sympathies found a home in every heart,

Be not jealous overmuch,
But hope and time will make you better; .

Which leaves the soul without a fetter.

With a smile of misbelieving 1
The tide of ill is not so strong
Man loves not always wrath and wrong.
It cannot be that every heart
Is steeled so much against its neighbor;
Let each with reason play his part,
And fruit will spring from out the labor;
Progressing still life's journev through,
Be just and kind towards jour fellow,
Remembering, whale'er you do,

But trust, and man will trust in turn.

In trade, to overreach a brother;

Upraise a hand to help another;

A dark and true account is taken;
Kingdoms may quake, and thrones may fall,
But God is looking over all.

To fling the seeds of reformation;

The Westminister Review contains nn nrticlo on
the position occupied by Woman indifferent nations,
f'ioni which we derive the following :
Tho Mohammedans nearly all believe that
woman has no soul. This is not taught in the
K'jiun but is countenanced by the fact that in the
Pruphct's Paradise houris are given to the faith
ful instead of their earthly wives. Tho Chinese
make slaves of their women in this world, and
deny them any hope of compensation hereafter.
M. Hue status that the Chinese women, in the
Southern provinces, have formed a sect c tiled
"Abstinents ; " who live wholly on vegetables.
They think that after death, if they have boen
faithful to their vows of abstinence, they w ill re
turn to life as men. In"W estern Australia female
children are always betrothed a few days after
their birth. Should the first liushaud die before

From the China Mail, Nov. 15.
Tho atrocities of tho Coolie trade from China
have excited universal indignation, both among
those who know they lire generally tho result of
ignorant or brutal management, and others who
understand nothing about the trade, nnd make no
distinction betweeu hirl Coolies who are treated
as slaves and voluntary emigrants who pay for
their own passage. But all former instances have
been outdone by n wholesale massacre, of which
accounts havo just been icceived.
Tho horrible tale may be briefly told : The Wa
verly, an Americnn ship of 750 tons, recently sail
ed from Auioy with 442 Coolies for Havana or Cat
lao. Tho Captain died shortly after her depar
ture; the first mate, in ccnunan 1 of the vessel,
brought her to Manilla, for the purpose of procu
ring another officer to take his place. On anchor
ing nt Cavite it would appear tho mato had alarm
ed tho Captain of the port about the sanitary con
dition of the ship, which proventcd free intercourse
with her; nnd as, besides the Uaptain, one ot the
Coolies had died, tho prejudices of tho Chinese
were offended at the mode in which the burial was
about to be conducted, or at some other unexplain
ed treatment of the dead bodies. But the only
explanation accorded to them was the mate's lilt
ing a revolver nnd shooting down one or more
their number, tho rest being driven without diffi
cul y below and made secure under hatches.
without, any precaution, or apparently any
thought, about ventilation. The mate thereafter
attended the Captain's funeral, and spent tho day
on shore; ami it was not until after midnight that
the agents of the ship, who may till then have
been unaware how the matter stood, took alarm,
and insisted that tho mito should then ascertain
the state of his human freight: nnd so, at 2 o'clock
next morning, twelve hours after the hatches h
been put on, they were removed to discover that
two hundred nnd fifty-one of the Coolies were life
loss corpses. Forty-five mnro aro missing, leaving
only one hundred nnd forty-six, of whom several
are not likely to survive.
The mate and crew have been imprisoned by the
Spanish authorities, nnd, it is said that the United
States consul declines to take any cognizance
the matter.
Other Coolie ships have recently left China under
circumstances that ati.ird ground for apprehension
that they may not complete their voyages without
disaster. In connection with this subject (which
has not hitherto been treated as slave-dealing)
may mention that tire Governor of Maciio has im
prisoned two Portuguese suhjicts charged with
buying Miiuose girlK.chicllv nt Mngpa, tor the pur
pose of exporting them to Havuua ; in short, with
Mitrpkb op Chinese. A letter from Manilla
Ehvood Walter states tliat2(JtiColies were murdered
on board of tho s hip W uriuly. It seems that
slight mutiny of the Coolies had been effectually
quelled, alter the nring ot n tew shots and the kill
iug of two or three of their leaders ; the remain
ing having retreated below, and the hatches being
lastei.ed down upon tliem.
Subsequently, owing to remonstrances from
agent of the vessel, the hatches were removed when
it was found that2UU wero dead. Part of theui.as
was proved nn examination, had been scalded
hut water.which had been poured down the hatches
by order of dipt. French. The officers of
ship are in prison, awaiting a judicial exauiin
tion. Irelano. The exodus is coming back. Vast
numbers of our nomndio tribes, to whom
thought Old Ireland had bidden a final adieu, are
droppiu homeward, and asking about "the cabin
door close by the wild wood," with a stiong; feel
ing of tho immortality of tenant riirht. Politi
cians may be disposed to regard this as the advance
guard of the projected invasiuu; but, if they are
connected in any way with the promoters of that
scnemn, wo should say that they belonged to
cuiiiuiiHsariui, lor ney come unurineu. io revol
ver, no bowio knives, no pitchforks, no nothing
But they bring dollars, nnd, like the Earl of Rich
mond, go at once "into the bowels of tho land;"

The unconcealed dislike of the American citizens
for the turbulent and unthrifty habits ol the Irish
settlers, has also, nn doubt, had a considerable
effect in disgusting the latter wiUi their transatlan

of Irish emigrants is true, and not unimportant.

Weekly Edition between 80,000 fltif 'jC.OW'
In issuing their Prospectus for 1?C6, the propri
etors of the Post take it fur granted, that the pub
lic nre already tolerably will acquainted with the
character of a paper that has grown strong during
the storms nnd sunshino ot I HlKll-ruLi; .
YEARS. Their object always tins been, as it re
mains to be to publish a weekly paper for the funi
ly circle, which shall not only amuse, but also in
struct nnd improve, thnso who may rend it. To
accomplish this object, the best articles are selected!
or condensed from foreign nnd domestic periodicals.
and original articles ot an instructive charaotor
procured, when possible.
Letters irom ioreign Lands; tne most interest
ing portions of the Weekly News of the world;
Sketches of Life, Adventure nnd Character; Selec
ted and Original Articles upon Agriculture; Ac
count of tho Produce nnd Stock Markets; and a
bank Note List nre included anionic the Bolid inlor-
mation to be constantly found in the Post.
But the mind requires a wider ranee it has fa
culties which delight in the humorous and lively,
me iiui.giii'iiivR mill poetical, j nese incuiiics also
must have their appropriate food, ebe they become '
enfeebled, nnd ns a consequence, the intellect be
comes narrow nnd one-sided, and is not able to take
an enlarged nnd onerous view of human nature
and its destiny. To satisfy those heaven-implan
ted cravings ot our tnentnl being, wo devote a fair
propm-tinn of tho PuBt to FICTION, POETRY and
I1U.MOR. ;
Among our contributors in the first two of the
above Departments, nre several of the most gifted
writers in the land. We nlso draw freely for Fic
tion nnd Poetry upon the best periodicals in this
country nnd Great Britain. Wn design commen
cing a New Story by Mrs. SotTiiwoRTii, author of
The Deserted Wife," 'Miriam," &c. in car first
paper of January next.
hMiKAi liNUS, illustrative of important pla
ces and actions, of Agricultural nnd other new in
ventions, w ith others of a Humorous, tluga re
fined character, are also ficuly given.
This is one of tho few large papers filled witfc
life and thought, instead of lumbering trash. It
management is marked by liberality, courtesy,
ability and tact. It employs tho best literary tal
ent, and spares no pains or expense. As n family
paper, nne of literary and general intelligence, we
cordinlly recommend it. Cayuija Chief, Auburn?
A'. Y. . .
Our readors may rely upon it, that Deacon and'
Peterson will be as good as their word. So far at
we canjudge by years of observation. those publish
ers do rather more thnn they promise ; nnd their
paper is edited with marked ability. It is singular
ly freo from silly sentinientnlism nnd bluster, but
is of healthy tone on all subjects, always moderate
in language, hut always mildly advocating the
right. We find it one of the most generally at
tractive pnpors in ourexchauge. Saturday Visitot
Rittsbvg Pa.
It is the best literary nnd family pnper in the
Union. Rock Islander, Ruck Island, 111.
It is emphatically one of the very best literary
newspapers in the whole country, nnd deserves the
unpnralled success Willi w inch it lias met under ita
present enlightened nnd liberal proprietorship.
The greater its circulation in this Stale, the less1.
probably, is vur gum pecuniarily : yet we must
pronounce it a nust excellent journnf, and worthy
the patronage of everybody. The contributors to
the Posture nmong the finest writers in America,
nnd tho editor's articles nre nlwnys characterised
by truth and taste. Jersey Blue, Camden, A". J.
We havo heretofore spoken in high terms of the
merits of the Post. lis one of the best papers on our
exchange list, nnd we regard it as ono of the best
literary papers to be found anywhere. Its edito
rials are wiitten with ability, and take n'libcral,
independent and comprehensive view of men and
things. Star and Adccrliser, Wrightsville, Pa. ,
It is deservedly nne of tho most popular publio
journals in the United States. combining ns it does,
in n literary point of view, nil the intorest of the
best magazines, w ith a vast amount of general in

ly Newsi-ai-er will be issued, with new type and
new attractions; the principal one is of the kind
