V [WBITTE* for thr times. I The Hear Old Friends at Home. Although we And hearts true and kind, When in distant lands we roam, We often sigh for the days gone by, And the dear old friends at home. White others give their all to live Iu some palace proud or dome. In that huiuble cot let us share the lot Of the dear o.d friends at home. We would traverse again the distant plain, Or the ocean's briny foam, Could we but rest in that place so blest, With the dear old friends at home. The stranger’s smile can ne’er beguile, Sad hours will often come, And none can cheer those seasons drear Like the dear old friends at home. Maud. Silver City, Nev., July 8, 1875. THREE WISHES. "I wish,” said a millionaire, riding along, With pallid and sorrowful brow; I wish like that laboring man to be strong— I’d give all the wealth for it now.” *• I wish,” said the man, as the carriage he eyed, 'And toiled with the sweat dropping down; ‘*<1 wish I was rich, ami then I could ride. Like that millionaire, over the town.” *• I wish," said a gentleman, tying the pair, " You both had your wishes, that’s all; But for myself, this weather, I declare, I’d rather be nothing at all." SUICIDE. Feir, guilt. d**p»ir, and moon-struck frenzy, rush On voluntary death: the wise, the brave, When the tierce storms of fortune round 'em roar Combat the billows with redoubled force; Then, if they perish ere the port is gained. They sink with decent pride: and from the deep. Honor retrieves them bright as rising Mar* (— Fvnter’s Magizine. It is but a few days since Capt. W. II. Brown, of the Fifth United States Cavalry, is reported to have committed suicide because the young Indy who became the wife of Gen. P. Sheridan bad proved faithless to her plighted vows to young Brown. If this bo true, her honeymoon will j not bo without a shadow. Night be fore Iasi a young man in Oakland look his life because the young lady whom lie loved had concluded that her 1 ito would bo spent more agree ably to herself with another. A lew days ago a man in San Fran cisco ceased to live for a similar rea sou. Love sick suicide seems to bo becoming almost a mania. And silly as it may seem it is rather too serious to be altogether sentimental. For probably next to sea-sickness there is nothing so distressing as love-sicknoss. In the former condi tion one has but little choice between life ami death; and in the latter stale of mind and heart his choice is rath er in tavor of a state of non-existence than of continued effort to replace what he has lost. Those who have tried both probably prefer neither. And it is just possible while we cotndemn a suicide as a coward ami a guilty self-murderer, a felo dear, that, terriblo as the act may be, whatever tlio cause that lead to it, be does not always receive the sym pathy which he deserves. When a young man destroys his life, or a young woman hers, on account of lost lore, we can hardly believe that they did so because they fear to live and contend with the difficulties of a future of trials; nor that life is taken to gratify any selfish spite to ward the faithless survivor whose life must be more or less wretched f»r having caused a death, however unintentionally. It seems alto gether more probablo that tho suicide destroys his lifo be cause in tho acute agony and distress oi disappointed love, or sudden losses and misfortunes, lifo appears to have been made entirely worthless to him by his calamities. He feels as if ho had nothing now for which to live, and that lie, at least, would be bettor off out ol Ilian In the world. Of course such thoughts must spring from sudden and overwhelming distress, or from a morbid state of mind. Hut in either case they ate opposed to the theory that suicide is the result ol malice or murderous feelings. Therefore, the suicide seems worthy of our pity, dreadful as his crime may be. Formerly lie was treated in England as the worst of human existences. Ilis body was thrown out on the highway, and pierced through witli a stake. Afterwards this law was repealod in a more humano age, and while the suicide was permitted burial in consecrated ground, it must bo done at night »nd without Christian rites. In this country we have no such law. Hut whatever tho cause of suicide, and >s much as the self-dostroyer may deserve our sympathy and pity, his is a dreadful deed which should be shunned by every sane individual, not knowing )>ow terrible must be the future of the sclf-tjoijtroyor.— Oakland Trawicriji(, International Squabble at Fort Benton, Montana. The Helena “ Independent ” of June 24th lias the following: “The citizens of Helena were startled yesterday evening by information that the United States troops had surrounded Fort Benton and ar rested Messrs. Hardwick, Evans, Harper, Halo and Debrew, for al leged complicity in killing a party of Assiniboine Indians in the Cy press Hills, British Possessions, some time over two years ago. It is reported that orders were issued for tho arrest of fourteen men, but Deputy Marshall Hard and tho military succeeded in capturing only the parties above mentioned. They will arrive in Helena to-day or to-morrow, and will have an examination before W. E. Cullen, United States Commissioner. Un der tho extradition treaty the pris oners will necessarily be brought to Helena for examination, as they are arrested at the instigation of the British authorities for an al leged crime committed under their jurisdiction. It is said correspond ence has been in progress some time between the authorities of the Dominion of Canaila and the United States in relation to the matter. From information obtain ed, it appears that a band of In dians had stolen some horses be longing to these men, and in pur suit of them they came upon a band of Indians whom they sup posed to bo tho guilty parties, and in the fight which ensued thirty or thirty-live Indians were killed.” Who Allied the Colleges. The Yale Ccmrant says : Ilarvai<1 College was named after John Harvard, who, in 1638, lelt to the college £779, and a library of over one hundred books. Williams College was named after Col. Ephraim Williams, a soldier ol the old 1 rcnch war. Dartmouth College was named af j ter Lord Dartmotli, who subscribed I a large amount, and was President of the first Board of Trustees. Brown University received its name from Hon. Nicholas Brown, who was u graduate of the college, went into business, became very wealthy, and endowed the college very largely. Columbia College was called King's College until the close of the war for independence, when it re ceived the name of Columbia. Bowdoni College was named after Governor Bowdoni, ot Maine. Yale College was named after Elihu Yale, who made very liberal donations to the college.

An Ikkkci.aim aiii.k BritishSail or.—'I lie London papers tell a sad story of that Irreclaimable being, the British Jack-Tar. At one of Moody and Shankey's recent meetings there was a great “ outpouring,” and alter the audience had given all necessary Indications of a hopeful state of mind, Mr. Moody called upon all those who wished to go to heaven to rise in their places. One after an other all the persons present go up and reinaiued standing save one per verse sailor, who obstinately kept Ids seat. Fixing this obdurate ma riner with Ills eye, Mr. Moody ad dressed him and asked him if it could be possible he did not wish to go to heaven also. “ Yes, your Honor,” responded Jack; “ I wish to go to heaven.” “ Then why don’t you rise with the rest ?” “ Be cause,” replied Jack, very slowly, and surveying the whole company with a scrutinizing glance, ” be cause I ain't going to ship ' with any such a looking crew as this!” Lake Tahoe is on the parallel of 30 degrees north latitude and 130 de grees west longitude. It is 0,330 feet above the level ot tho sea. Its greatest depth is rated ut 1,535 leet by Governments engineers, but it is claimed that recent soundings have given over 3,000 foot. It covers an area of some 300 square miles, and is surrounded by high mountains. It never freezes during the severest weather and its Winters are un equalled in the goueral serenity and blandness ot the atmoaphero, and its brilliant clearness and purity, One of the uuinitiatod says he sup poses that Masons are only a higher sort of hod-fellows.— World, His cotemporaries admit that Sherman's book is full of a Billy on every pago.—Danbury 2?e\rst C.
