We huve r.ot Wen able to trace this to an authentic source." A Washington letter in the Baltimore Pa triot has the following allusion to the sub ject: "Affair in England seem to be in a worse condition than they have been in for centuries past, and to add to her troubles, I see it stilted that fears are entertained that the Queen is l iboring under the hereditary disease of insunily. I sincerely hope and trust that this may be a slander of the oppo sition. Shu Is anxious to do right if her Ministry would let her, and I entertain s high opinion of the conservatives principles of her consort. If his udrice Could prevail, there would be a speedy peace, and it might bo ac complished now, if Nicholas be deud, with out loss of honor; for England might say, we warred against him believing liim to be ambi tious of extending bis territorial limits; we nie willing to bo on terms of amity with hia successor, until we see some evidence of bis being actuated by the same spirit of aggran dizement. At nil events, whether successful or not, England might consistently nnd hon orably make the proposition. But w ould Alexander II. entertain it. He knows better thnn his father did, the strength of his armies in the Crimen, and the weakness of his ad versaries. Will he forego the glory he might win by driving them from Ins territory! Who can say ! There is another consideration should England be willing to entertain this proposition, would France consent to it I I tear not. The Right Talk. The WushingtonUn ion take a very sensible view of waul, labor, and cold potatoes: "Th great mass of men in the United Slates, if they become Wealthy at nil, must necess.irily pr..cliee economy nnd self-denial; und what is consideicd by them ns no hard ship ouht, in like manner, to be submitted to vnluntui i.y by the laboring classes, if not in the hope of lieeoniiiiL' rich, nt least tmin a prudent lotsight, which every man's rea son and experience tench h in is necessary to meet those accidents or providential dis pensalions which are almost sure to occur sooner or later. If a laboring man earns from tine to three dollars a day, and spends n portion of it, not in necessaries, but luxuries, equally injurious to himself, his family and society, be has no more right to demand from tho Stile other employment or bread, than thu rich extravagant spendthrift who has t as', ed his substance in riotous living and licen tious indulgence. He may claim relief on tlie score of humnoily, but cannot justly de mand it 'its u right" The good sense contained in these remarks must commend itself to every reader. If men wish to get above poverty, they must lenrn to be economical ns well us industrious. IT"Gen. Scott's Brevet Rank ol Lieuten ant General does not create a vacancy in the pliiee he formerly held.

When Nicholas, the late Czar , of Russia, was in Paris, on a visit, some years jtgo, it was rem. irked by a French Indy upon him and his splendid retinue ns thev passed along: 'There h goes, preceded by the nssasins of his father, accompanied by the assassins of bis brother, and followed by hit own assamim" This reminds one also of the remark of Madam de Stael opoa the Rus sian Government, that it was "an nbsolute despotism, tempered by tlie dagger." All the world is ready enough to believe that the Czar Nicholas has fallen by assassination. It is not impossible. All history, nnd especi ally Russian history, is full of such events. ilut there is also very good ground to be lieve that Nicholas wns, rather more than some other mortals, of his own age, likely to meet his death in a natural way, and just in the way in which he ia reported to have d'.ed. He was of full plethoric habit subject to inflammations, to fevers, and to disorders, which, in kucli habits, teruiiuite in apoplexy. Thirty yeurs ago, according to s Very good uutliorilvt he was nnr loaing his life from some infl.immutory disorder. He was also, about the same lime, as is recorded, advised, by his physicians, that he would come to his end by the formation of "internal fat," and that, to correct this tendency, and prolong hi life, he must addict himself to severe bodily exercise and low diet ' Aecnrdigly, for thirty yenrs, ho hns pursued a strict rtgimen be ing very t-p-.iru in diet nnd nlmott living on horseback, or in some exercise in the open air. He never allowed himself to eat a full meal, or to satisfy his uppetite lot food. It is recorded by those intimately acquainted with his private habits, thiithi bieaklust was a cup of lea, nnd a biscuit, and his dinner, wry slight, and never accompanied Dy more than u single glass of wine, and that he par look ot no subsequent meal. His death cnu only be accounted tori notwithstanding nil his care, by reference to !'is constitutional or ganization, and ta the bodily nnd merit:;! la bors by whiflrhe was always oppressed. So falls the ijrentcst monarch of the age, nnd the finest looking man in cliii-tei.doui.

THE IDLE CHILDREN. There was once three children, who instead of going to school, as they should have done, stood loitering about, grumbling that learn ing was such a stupid thing. "Wt's set off to the wood ! and play with the little animals there they never go to school !" When they enme to the wood, they asked the animals, both great and small, to piny with them. "We are very sorry, but really we've just now no time," replied the animals. The beetle hammed : "That would be fine if we were to idle with yon, childreu; I must build a fresh bridge of gran.", the old one is notsiife." The children crept soft past the anti hill and ns for the bee, they ran awny from her just as though she had been a venomous beast The little mouse cried in a shrill- little voice, "I'm gathering op corn nnd seeds for the winter." "And I," said the little white dove, "am carrying dry sticks for my neat.",. The hare only nodded to them. "I can't play with you for the whole world," said he, "I've got such a dirty face, and must go sod wash it" The little straw berry blossom snid,"I must make use of this fine day, and ripen my fruit, that it may be ready when the old beggurinuo comes to look for it" Then came the young cock, strutting through the wood. "Dear monsieur Chanti cleer, you surely have nothing to do, you can come und piny awhile with us." "Pardon," cried he, with great grnvity. I've noble guests nt my house tn-day,and have to set out a feast for them;" and bowing very stifllyt away be went. Then lliecliildren accosted the little stream that wns running nlong so merrily. "Do, denr little stream, come nnd piny with usT i But the strcnm asked, quite astonished, 'What do yon nienn, children t Yes, indeed ? I don't know what to do, I am so very busy, and yet you nsk me tu piny with you ! I can't stnp either night or tiny. Men, beasts, gar dens, woodsy meadows, valleys, motnitiins, fields, I must give them all water to drink, und wash nil the dishes and clothes lie shies ! I turn the mill, saw plunks, spin wool, carry nlong boats upon my back, put out firs and much beside. I slop and play with idle chil dren, indeed !"' And away the stream flowed us fast as ever it could. The children were growing quite disheart ened, nnd thought they must L'ive up all hojie of finding playfellow in the wood, when they saw a finch sitting upon a branch, sing ing nnd eating by turns. They called out to him their invitation. "Stirs und garters exclaimed the finch, greatly surprised, "can I believe my ears?--You children seem to me under n great mis take. I've-no time to play, not I! Here I've been chasing flies all day, and now my young ones want me to singthein asleep. I'm sing ing to them the praise of labor. How can you think so badly of me! No, yon turnb.ck aonin, lazy children, und don't disturb the industrious folks in the wood."

PEEPS BEHIND THE CURTAIN. A BCSIST.M MAR AT HOME. "Well, I'm glad tea time ha come at last," said Mr. Brown in a fretful tone; and he closed his ledger, took hia hat, and with a quick, nervous slep started homeward. Mr. Brown was a prosperous merchant, and like all successful business men constantly harried, and often exceedingly perplexed. The past day had been one of tho wrong sort thing had gone wrong all day and now he wns goiDg homo weary and nervous; and, to get rid of these excited feelings, lie strode rapidly along the pavement.

It 1005 nicer than usunl, he would ullow, but then she might have been more punctual she hud nothing else to do. What if Willie did cry with the ear-nche, and the baby wus cross, the little nurse-girl could have taken care of them. If tea should be too lute to night, nnd he not able to meet his engage ment precisely ut the appointed time, hi repu tation for punctuality would suffer. Mr. Brown prided himself on his punctu ality. The excited man jerked his watch from bis' pocket; "Five minutes of six now," he ex claimed, and hurried on. By tho time be reached home he was morally certain that he sliould be too lute for that engagement, nnd all through his wife's inattention to his w ishes. But the discomfort of the previous evening hud not been forgotten by either mistress or servants, and the clock struck six uud the bell rang for ten just ns he closed the street door. "Why couldn't Belly wuit'till she knew I was ut home before she rung the bell? Strange a man can't have a minute's pence in his own house!" excl-iimed Mr. Brown, throwing himself tin the sofa uud wiping the perspiration from bis brow. Healed by his rapid walk and excited feel ings he was now ready-to reprove the very punctuality w hich yesterday he had so rigidly enjoined. . . ,. '. "We were too late Inst evening, you recol lect," said hi wife, "and I told Betty to be ready to ring the bell just when tho clock should strike to-night" .' i "You were angry nt what I said, .nnd thought you would retaliate in this way, I suppose," was the abused husband's amiable reply; and Ihu happy couple seated them selves nt the tea-table. "This tea is about ns warm as dish-water, und about ns palatable," was Mr. Biow u's first remark. With an effort Mrs. Brow n drove back the tears w hich were fast filling her eyes, but a choking sensation prevented her from replying- ... "Il.ive'nl these sweetmeats n strange taste?' aeked the fault finder after a pause, deter mined not to lie baffled in bis uttempts to make every one else as unhappy u himself. "I have not tasted them ct," wns the quiet answer of the now self possessed wife. .., Mr. Brown wus enraged at such apparent indifference. . . , . "These buiscuits are as cold ns a stone, and thu butter ia like oil," said he; "indeed, there is nothing on the table fit to eat It docs appenr to me that it is a woman's duty to attend to these little mutters it can't be much trouble; and if a woman really loved her husband she would superintend her af fairs better than somi wives do." And the poor neglected husband, who had somehow contrived to cat heartily of the unpalatable food, rose indignantly from the table ud rushed nway to meet bis engagement .Mrs, Brown was not nn nngul she was only a sensitive, loving, right minded woman. Taking her Bible for her guide in relation to ber own duties, she remembered thul the same inspired apostle who said, "Wives, sub mit yourselves unto your own husbands a it is fit in the Lord,"ulso commanded husbnnds, "Husbands, love your wive, nnd be not bit ter ngaitist them." Sometime alio beenme highly indignant nt the wounding nnd almost insulting language used by her petulant hus bmid; nnd bitter word of recrimination were spoken, to be repented of, nnd wept over, and acknowledged, but never to be forgiven by him who hnd provoked them. Ten yenrs passed nway to Mr. Brown they were yenrs of great worldly prosperity wealth flowed in upon him; four benutiful children w ere blooming in his princely abode; his lovely wife, like a ministering angel, qui elly, sweetly presided there, aud sometime the sunshine continued even when "papa" came home. ' ;- . But alas! the upas of frotfulr.ess had con tinued to grow in that garden of flower; nnd did the "east wi-id" blow ever so softly, the blighting nroina was shaken from it branches, und the joy-blossoui were all withered. - , ' ' f . . Too gentlo and nmiable for a long resis tance to the unjust reproaches mid require ments of her husband, Mrs. Brow n had been gradually and almost imperceptibly fading. One by one the chords iif luv hnd teen rudely snapped asunder, reooiling upon, her heart and obstructing its throbbing of ten derness. Then the flush of health departed, the once buoyant step grew, languid, and a pule face made beautiful at times by the Ac ceptive hectic flush, or lighted wild a sweet, sad smile as a loving child's eyes. wn up turned to hers, nt d a feeble, attenuated form were all that remained of the once benutiful bride who gave herself id trustingly to one who vowed to "love, . honor aud cherish." Another year, nnd a long procession, in all the pomp of woe, wends its wy from the mansion of the millionaire, to a costly maut oleum in "the city of the dead." The crush." ed' heart' is broken tho weary one Is at rest! " . . ' . , ' ' , It is night; and how desolate is thnt horn from w hence the love-1'glit has departed!

Piire he arraign Providence for remov. ing his piecions wifo to thnt "better land," when his own hnnd inflicted the slight, but oft-repeated wounds, that, like the life-blcoof trickling drop by drop from tlie scarce open, sd vein, at length drained the purple fouuluin of fife. , . Alas! alas! tho scales have fallen from hia selfish vision now; but it is too late! His own hnnd has dashed from him the cup of joy; and the word of Wisdom, "He that is slow to anger is better thnn the mighty; nnd he that ruletn, bis own spirit than he that taketh a city," reverberate in thunder-tones through the halls of his guilt-stricken soul.
