The sun lay low in the west; In mute farewell to the fading day I soothed nay love to rest. I held her close to my throbbing heart, I kissed her Ups in joy, In a last good night to eyes of brown. On the river, in dear Amboy. Ah thpy lowered the flag in the dsrk'ning camp To the sound of drum and fife, I cursed the night that was dark’ning round — The one sweet day of my life. In the early dawn we marched away To sirk’ning fields of blood, Where many a soldier's crown of fame Hung o’er the crimson flood. But the one sweet dream of those happy days. Was her,.of the soft brown eyes; lu a tender dream of a camp’s hushed din In the dusk of the evening** skies. DEAD. Now darkness falls from the clouds above. Between me and my joy; And I bid farwell to roy buried love Near the river, in dear Amboy. E. A. Dolan. The Lecture Last Nioiit.— The Court-honse was crowded last Right by an audience composed largely of ladies, to listen to the lec ture of Hon. C. E. PeLong, on Japan, delivered on behalf of the sufferers by the recent flood. Mr. PeLong's remarks were interesting and instructive. His time was, of necessity, limited, and his opportu nities of preparation entirely insuf ficient. He. therefore, said ho would confine himself to a little conversa tion with those present upon the subject of the mysterious Empire of Japan. The “ conversation " ex tended for about an hour and a half. It was a rapid and vivid survey of tlie* history and present and religious status of the Japanese people, re viewed by the personal observations which Mr. PeLong’s distinguished, position gave him such full oppor tunity of making, which his acute ness enabled him to observe intel ligently, and which his eloquence and suavity enabled him to present attractively. He closed by a touch ing expression of his sympathy with our people in thoir misfortune, and the largo audience dispersed most heartily pleased with Mr PcLong. The amount received from his self sacrificing generosity will prove large (as yet we do not know the exact figures), and the entire people of Eureka extend to him their heart felt thanks. It is only a fair joke on Charley to state that he never could have got into the lecture room if ho had not purchased a lot of tickets.—Karr ha Sentinel, July 30. The Japanese.—The dress of lhe Japanese, says-a writer, is plain, but ipiite neat and comfortable, and, be it said to their praise, tar surpasses our own in point of physiological fitness. The men and women botli wear a garment very miteh resemb ling the old Koinan toga, which is fastened about the waist with a broad girdle. The women wear their hair in a very nice way, some thing after the waterfall style, minus the false material. The men wear their’s pretty much as the Europeans do. It is the custom for the ladies, as soon as they marry, to blacken thoir teeth and shave their eyebrows, in order, I presume, to prove their affection for their husbands; and I should think it ought, for it renders them horribly ugly. The young misses are usually very good-look ing, and some of them beautiful, but none of them can compare with our young girls at home. They are accepting the modern improvements , with wonderful celerity, and are making great strides on tiin road ot civilization, rapidly distancing their neighbors. A few days ago, some bright but naughty Salem boys borrowed two eggs from a neighbor’s hennery, and after boiling them in a calico hag, returned them to the nest. The boiling process loll the eggs covered j wilb the pretty figures of the calico, and the excited owner exhibited these curiosities far and near, and sought in vain for an explanation of this “curious freak of nature." " hether an ineffectual attempt to hatch out a calico chicken revealed to him tho stupendous joke or not cannot be told, but the hen faucier’s enthusiasm has subsided. When any one says “ calico chickens" to I bim, he immediately remembers •hat he has an important appoint ment to keep. | — -■ — ♦ .— At the last grand ball at Wyoni tng, Miss Jones was attired in a buff gros-grained buckskin dress, with army blanket overskirt, bottom looped up with buckskin string cut was.
