Lost under the Interminable years. liomea or Shakespeare each in his own place- Just flushes forth, and then disapears; For what we call their immortality Is a brief spark, born but to be diatrojed, As-the Jong ruin of all things that be. j Moves down the godless void. j Such is the creed our wise ones of the earth Eugrave now on the slowly-waning skies; Ice, night and death death with no sec ond birth- Even now before their prescient eyes, Pale in the lone abrssses of existence, World hangs on world, system on system death, "While over all ouhwearled life's resistance Vasi wings of blackness spread ; v Till that proud voice i"Let there be light" whugt breath - Came, we deemed, from Haven old glooms to chase. Hath past unfelt through a dim waste of death. To cease at lenth upon deaf space. Darknets eternal darkness, darkness bare Of warmth, of life, of thought, with orb3 thatrun, Like sad ghosts of the shining years that were, Each round its frozen sun. Sngus may scoff: " What matters this to you Who will rest well whatever may befall? Why care iu what strange grab of horrors new Is clothed the doom that waits us all? What if some fresh, unfailing age of gold, Should till each radiant gallaxy with bloom? The man whose race is run, whose tale is told. Owns nothing but his tomb. Thus, whether Nature still uphold her powcis, Or all things die at lust, as men have died Slop not to ak if that sure nn.ru of ours Isc coum-narrow'or world-wide." We answer thus: The cloud before u? spread Stains with its shadow all that nursed our urhne: Hope is the world's best blood, which, clnliocl or sued. Palsies the heart of Time; Tour grim futurity we cannot bear. It shakes us now. like earthquake tides mroMing, Imagination has her own dispair, And hears your distant dealhbell tolling; The dropes even now beneath those evil dreams. That, like hearse plumes, wind-swept, around her nod, And shrinks trom that lost universe, which seems To her the corpse of God. Let her still, therefore, guard her lamp, and fling Awav the terror under which she cowers, Trusting in trance to feel the touch of i spring And the young struggle of the flowers. Trusting that when the days are full.soine thought. Some presence, may down round as by and bv. So that, as prophets and as bards have taught, We men may live-not die. Then, if that hope, which science oft has thrown 7? tanL our nurse's lullsbv and kiss. If Nature round the edge her seeds have sown. Only to hide the near abys?; If all her visloned flowers and fruits, that smile And fade not, where tho living water irlenms. Be but as desert phantoms which beguile, Mirrored on phantom streams; Through none the promised amaranth mm' nnn. We yet accept the boon believing still That the great mother meaus us well-anr. sleep In falrh, according o her will. Macmillan's Mtgazine. Too Close to be Comfortable. Supposing that New York has been carried for the Republicans by 20,000 majority, as reports at the present writing state, and that the 35 electorifd votes of the Empire Stale elects the Presi dent, as" fs sure to be" the ease, let us examine the dangerous posi tion in which the nation yester day stood. Ten thousand of these twenty thousand votes changed from Garfield to Han cock would give the state to the Democratic nominee, and 138 votes from the South, 9 from New Jersey, 3 from Neveda, and 35 from New York would count 185 a majority of the electoral college, and that would be 1876 over again with the figures reversed this time 184 Republican to 185 Demo era tic. No patriot would like to see the nation again placed in such dialemma. The position would bo to excitingand too dangeious.and yet 10,000 votes changed in New York out of 1,100,000 would have placed us in that predicament! This is less then one per cent. Just think of it less then one vote in 100 changed in tho state b'f New York from Garfield to Hancock would have given the latter 185 votes to 184 for the for mer, and then what noice and confusion, and perhaps falsehood and treachery, would have been poured out upon the land? The reader wilL readily perceive the danger, and the careful man ay well as the patriot will try to avoid it in the future. California should act in this matter, and promptly, too. Her incoming Legislature should memorialize Congress to propose an amendment to the Constitution, allowed tho pnople to vote directly for President and Vico-Presideut, and thus do away with the awkward, menac ing and useless machinery of an electorial college. If the press of California will act in this matter with earnestness, this state may have the honorof setting in motion the ball that will conect this evil and avoid this great danger. Bee. And Novr What. The Democratic party is again beaten, This is the sixth time it nas been beaten in twenty yeHrs in these quadrennial con test. Its last president was Buchanan. Then came Lincoln, Lincoln, Grant, Grant, Hayes, and now Garfield all Republicans. Tho Democrats, at the opening of this campaign, had a solid South to begin with, which. however, turned into a millstone around their necks as the canvas progressed; and their National Convention brought forth a can didate against whose character personally, practically or militari ly no one could justly utter one word of censure, Gen. Hancock was as clean a man as 3ver was presented to his nation for its suf frages. In fact, it may be said, he was spotless. His party said one and all, " If wo cannot win with him as our leader and the solid South at his back, we might as well abandon the organization for ever. If we cannot win now we can never win." . And after Maine came thay were sure of success until Indiana turned the tide of battle. That central and pivotal State was the Blucher of their Waterloo. And now that they are routed horso, foot and dragoons, now that all their hope have been th.uj summarily and severely blasted and their ambi tion of years crushed in a mom ent, what next? A solid South is their bane, for a solid South be gets a solid North, just as love begets ove, or hate begets hate. fhey cannot win vyith that in the future any more than they could n the present. What, then, can they win with? If there is any hope for that party it is" in dis carding sectionalism, timidity, ts inilk-and water policy of good Lord and good devil, and stand ing forth like men upon a bold aggressive, popular platform. It must not antagonize a tariff for protection-; it must De up in uie public places as the friend and champion of labor; as tho earn est advocate of the right of every man. black or white, who is a citizen of the Republic to casta free ballot; it must, In fact, bz- eome the Tribune of the people; and be no longer simply the op- j ponentof the policy proclaimed ' by the Republican party, it must make its own policy, and avow its i own principles, re"'"3 " what other parties may do, or it must wither and die. No party can long live in this day of active thought and close investigation that fails to keep ab reast with the times. For twenty years the Democratic party litis been the best friend and most effective sapporler of the Republican parly. The only object of its organized existence seemed to be to keep Republican party in power., in the fifth of a century just passed that is all the Democratic party has accomplished. If it had died when it was killed a new party would have arisen with new ideas, hopes and anticipations. It is necessary to good govern- meni that there should be two great parties in the nation, as nearly balanced as may be, one to watch the other and keep it in check, but the Democracy has not proved to be strong enough to iccomplish this end, nor can it ever gain sufficient strength for this purpose until it shall be re generated and born a new. W nat thn can it do? what should it do If should lie down and die in pence so that a new and more eng lightened; more active and more popul ir party miirht rise npon t r;nQ hntiiiP nhiinnns are thai its blundering leadeis will not consent to maintain its organiza tion for tho sole purpose in the fjtnre.asin tho pint, of keeping the Republican party in office. We shall see what wo shall see. Sacramonto Bee. It id reported that an arrange ment has been enterd into by which $250,000 are to be expen ded by the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad Company be tween the present time and Jan uary 1st, next, In building a road eastward from San Diego.

At S:in Diego the Atchison, i'opeka and Sanla Fe Company will have the use of about 1200 acres, do nated for railroad purposes last year, in aucntion, me energeuc citizens have raised $30,000 for the purchases of necessary rights of way. St. Leuis Times. An English Compliment, to the United States Senate. The American Senate was founded for a treble purpose-to act as a check upon hasty action of the Representatives, to control the executive authority of theh Pesident.and to uphold the rights of individual States belonging to the Federation; in other words, to protect local interests against undue encroachments from the imperial power. The HoilSO of Representatives was to- represent the Union, tho Senate the States composing that TJniori. -Ee'riators.j hold their seats for six years; Rop- i resentalives only far two. One third of the Senate, however, is renewed every two years. Mr. Gladstot e has discribed the Amer ican Constitution as a masterpiece of human wisdom. Its framers certainly achieved one signal suc cess: They divised a second chamber, at once popular and effi cient, for the purpose for which it was designed. The Senate ha frequently thwarted the action of the House of Representatives; yet no cry has ever been raised against its privileges, and no American dreams of abolishingit. The same can-hardly be saicl of any Senate in the Old World. The United States Senate may he called the modeljUpper House. France, with all the political ge tiious of her sons, h is never been able to create an Assembly pos sessed of the like prestige and popularity. The second Republic contented itself with a single iNational Assembly. Napoleon fll. re-established a' dual Legisla ture, his Sonute being construct ed nn thesimnlest of all possible pians. It consisted of 150 mem hers, named for life by the Era- peror, at his own discretion. J Cardinals, Marshals and Admirals were also ex-oRicio Senators. As the Pope confers the red hat, the curious spectacle was thus pre sented of members of the Nation al Legislature appointed by a foreign Prince. London Daily News.
