Ail Hour of Peace. BY THOMAS MOORE. How calm, how beautiful comes on The stilly hour, when storms are gone ! 'When warrior winds have died away, And clouds beneath the glancing ray, Melt off, and leave the land and sea 'Sleeping in bright tranquility Fresh as if day again were born, Again upon the lap of morn ! "When the light blossoms, rudely torn .And scattered at the whirlwind's will, Hang floating in the pure air still, Filling it all with precious balm, In gratitude for this sweet calm; "And ever' drop the thunder showers, Have left upon the grass and flowers, .'Sparkles, as 'twere that lightning gem Whose liquid flame is born of them ! Egotism. Dream not, complacent, thoughtless man, That heaven of thee takes special care, Or swerves lroni its impartial plan To give thy lot a better share. For full a thousand millions more, The showers descend, the sunbeams smile, On each far continental shore, Each lonely, eea-sequestered isle. How vaster far the throng which saw Our earth, since dawned her primal day, Which flitted through the gates of awe, In all the ages past away ! Dost deem thyself th' important one? So thought each shadow gone before, Each felt as, when its day was done The earth and skies need stand no more. Then simply spend the fleeting years That bear thee toward the waiting gloom, Content to share, with all thy peers. The common hope beyond the tomb. A Strange Adventure. Mr. Redblossom drank rather more than his usual allowance of hot rum, and sugar, one cold night last week; the con sequence of which was, he gave his wife a rather confused account of his conduct, on his-return home: "Mr. Smith's grocery Etore invited me to go and drink cousin Sain and you see,- the wether "Was dry and I was very sloppy so I said I didn't mind punching one drink: and 'squeer how my head went into the punch !

What a Taste. In one of Col. Noknd's recent letters from Arkansas to the N. Y. Spirit of the Times, occurs the following paragraph : I heard a hard yarn on an old toper the other day. He was out of money, credit, and liquor and almost froze for a drink. Some mischievous fellow agreed to fur nish him liquor if he would open his mouth and swallow a small blacksnake that one of them had picked up, it was a hard un dertaking, but he "craved liquor," and consented; open went his mouth and down went the snake and a sicker man never was known.

TAKE OFF THE HATCH. A Sailor's Yarn. Having procured our horses, we set sail for the country, and becoming interested with our ride, we proceeded a distance of ten miles before wo stopped. At last we dropped anchor in front of the dwelling of a Scotch lady, well known to all of us for keeping good things. We gave our horses to the ostler, and entered the houso where wo were received like , r T,r , , x L ,. , , uu Havannas, destroyed some of the old la- dy's oranges fresh from the trees, rolled ten pins; and become so amused with each other, that wc heeded not the hour, when wk -t w.l t. nf ti,rt 9iw ,1 J i bawled back to. " Look here, shipmates, what a row is kicking up overhand." We all ran out to look at the sight, when we beheld the heavens black as ink, T i 1 11 ; 1 1 ' ana a tremenuous squaii coming up, wnicn threatened a hard night in those diggins. "What do you think of that boys?" said Bob. " Here's a pretty go here we are, ton miles out of our latitude, and a storm gathering. It begins to rain now. Put up your helm boys, and let her slide for the house." So we made sail under Bob's command, direct to the old lady's snug harbor. Wet to the skin, we began to lay plans for the night, when our hostess entered the room. Bob commenced addressing her on the possibility of her accommodating us for the stormy night. " Weel, weel, I dinna ken," and away she bustled out of the room. She came back with the grateful news that she could provide for us all ; so we settled down to our happiness again. We amused ourselves in various ways during the evening, when it was proposed to turn in, as we must be up early in the morning, to get back into the city in any season. So we nladc a mb've at once; and were shown to our beds for the night, all but Bob ; he wanted tb4finish his cigar first, and said he would soon follow in our wake. It might have been half an hour after we had left Bob below, smoking and chat ting with the old lady, telling her he had not been able to leave his ship all night be fore,since she arrived inportjfor whileload ing her he had been on duty all day, and it came night he was tired enough to turn right in. I say Bob was enlightening the old lady in this strain, when we called to him to come up to bed. " Aye, aye," said Bob, I am coming. Well old lady, pleasant dreams to ye. I'll turn in now, and we heard Bob start, for the stairs. The house was an old fashioned one, with a very narrow stairway and consid erable entry at the foot of them; which o pened directly into the sitting-room below where we left Bob. "Never mind the ligbt, old lady, I can navigate up stairs," we heard Bob say ; a door shut, and all was still as death. " Where's Bob?" said one of our party. " He's coming; I heard him bid the old lady good night." ,n,t i i ui rv 7 I that it was the one called for; but on com- " Well, why don't ho come up then 7 : . ... , , , J , ... , , ' r paring it with the oook he found it to be ldn t you sins out for him to come up!"Lnf TMc tVnmnntrinn nf ajv JUion t you sing out tor mm to come up " Yes, and all of ten minutes ago.

" Yes I'm a coming." Here was a pause for a minutewhen no Bob appearing, wc began again : "Bob!" "Hullo!" u Coming up ?" "Rot your pictures.

We went down to Bob with the light, making everything vissible, which before was enveloped in pitchy darkness. The old lady kept her clothes horse hung up on two spikes in the entry, at the foot of the stair3. The entry being dark and narrow Bob had got hold of what he supposed to be a ' Jacobls ladder,' and commenced -ascending the rounds un til his head touched the hatch. ILecStires Oil Etri tiaiBlasaj. Mr. J. Tiffany, of Cleavclaud, has (published a serious of Lectures on the sub ject of Spiritual communication, embody 'ing many remarkable cases. Among them we find the following: X7 I,wU1 mention another example. Mr. j Nathan Whinney, of Warren Co., Ia., is a medium for these communications. His wife lost a brother about nine years of age, in Wilmington, Clinton Co., Ohio. This brother's name was David Allen Everett. This lad previous to his death, had lost a rrf!.'f L-n?fV toViicIi lift nriTftfl rnrir li?rlilr in searchin for inh he anJd 0?herf! . O . . had spent much time. After David had been deceased for a year or more, his spirit purported to be present to communicate through his brother-in-law' Mr. W. Mrs. W.,who was strongly inclined to doubt the genuineness of the manifestations, reniak ed, " David, if this is really you, you can tell us where you lost your knife and where it can now be found." To which he replied u Certainty, I can see it now; it is lying in the pigeon-bos in such a barn, in Wilmington, Ohio, with the blade open." He then gave directions how they could get to the box, by climbing up on the scaffolding, &c, and ho requested that the knife might be obtained and be kept to be presented to his little neph ew, (a son of Mr. and Mrs. W.,) when he should be old enough to appreciate it, as a gift from his spirit uncle. Mrs. W. wrote to her parents in Wilmington, re questing them to look for the knife, and thus test the correctness of the commu nication. They had removed some five miles from the place where the knife was lost, and had not sufficient confidence in the communication to go five miles to test it. Two young men being present at the time the letter was received, and being curious to test the matter, mounted their horses and went and made the search, and found the knife in the exact place described in the-letter, with the blade open, a3 described. And the knife is now being kept to be presented according to the request of the little spirit-giver. Thus I might continue giving an indefi nite number of cases illustrating this point but the above are sufficient. These manifestations indicate a decree of intelligence superior to that of the me diums or any other person present; and they also indicate an intellgence purely intellectual in its character. Illustra ting this point, I will give the casq of Prof. Miller, of Cortland Co., New York. He visited certain mediums in Auburn, N. Y., for the purpose of investigating this subject. While there, ho endeavor ed to obtain indications of intelligence of such a character as to render it certain tbat tue answers were in no way dictated bv the mediums. He therefore selected a subject for investigation that would re quire a degree of intelligence not posses sed by one in a hundred thousand. He called for the spirit of La Place, the cel ebrated astronomer and mathematician, and directly the spirit responded to his call. "Now," said Professor M., "if you arc the spirit of La Place, you can demon strate to me such a problem in such a book of your ' Msxhanica Ccblcstis.1 The spirit responded by giving the desired demonstration. He took it down as giv en by the spirit, not being quite certain correct. This demonstration was of such a character that Prof M.'knew no person present excepting himself could under stand it after it was given. Prof. M. also applied another test. There was in his mind a mathematical problem which ho had been endeavoring to solve for some time, without success. While here ma king these investigations, ho submitted that problem to the spirits of La Place and Newton, and they solved for him the problem. Here certainly was an indica tion of a very high degree of intelligence concerned in the production of these phenomena. I might add many other cases, but the above are sufficient for my present purpose. Romantic.

CHEAP FUJEL. Delaware, Leiiish and Wyoming Valley ISaiSrosui. To the Editor of the JSf. Y. Tribune. Sir : A communication in your issue of the 29th of April speaking so very dis paringly of this enterprise and of all its friends at this place, makes it necessary for me, but with some reluctance, to ask your insertion of this avowal of all the facts in connection therewith. That we of Wilkesbarre havo so far borno with the many misrepresentations respecting this valuable improvement is evidence that we detest strife and have no sympathy with those who are so ready to engage in it. For a period of twenty-five years at different times it has been agitated to o pen an outlet from our rich and easy working Coal-beds to the Delaware Wa ter Gap. Various diverse interests, be lieving that such an outlet would materi ally mar their prosperity, have had a tendency to retard our hopes and endeav ors. These are now beginning to yield to the well known and desirable fact that there is sufficient demand for our staple to give business to all the projected lines. With one exception we think we have the good wishes of all. This exception it is ne cessary to mention comes from those who have the control oftheLegget'sGap Bail road, and are the proprietors of the village call- ed Scranton. That this should be so is to us quite unexpected, as in all their re quirements for legislative action they have hitherto had our hearty co-operatidri. That, after having expended four millions of dollars (without much success) in their laudable endeavors to find iron ore and as good anthracite coal as wo have in our valley, is not our fault, and the fol lowing well known fact in this valley will fully establish what it is actually ne: cessary the New-York people should know. When the Pennsylvania Coal Compa ny commenced its operations, it purchas- ed large bodies of lands m the lmmedi j ate proximity to Scranton. That Com- pany built a Bailroad from Hawley to j these lands. It expended vast sums in : searching for coal and endeavoring to I develop the coal that it was believed these j lands contained. After all their outlays of time and money, it found the lands so purchased utterly valueless and worthless. I Operations upon them were discontinued, : and they were abandoned. The alterna tive was then presented to the Company of extending its railroad 18 miles further, which would lead them into the Wyoming V alley, four miles above our town, or a- 4 .ub;uiu, nr determined, and that decision has made tho Pennsylvania Coal Company what it now is, a thriving and prosperous con cern. The foregoing speaks volumes, as ( far as the purity and abundance of our coal deposits over that in the Lackawana Yalley. Now the Cobb's Gap Railroad, which is to be used for the purpose of building up Scranton and connect with that won derful achievement, known as the Leg of connecting us with New York, expec ting to make us tributary to Scranton, and travel 18 miles out of our 29 feet veins to take a railroad with much steep er grddes, and passing through the thous ands of acres or rough timber-land, which , , fa , , , xl I . has been recently purchased by this thri ving Company and who have taken all the Stock, without paying much for the same, with tho expectation of issuing Bonds, to carry out their private specula: tion. The distance from Wilkesbarre to the Delaware Water Gap, is no greater than from Stranton,the grades easier and right of way open without money or price, in fact the timber also. Look closely in to this magnificent project. There are over six Coal Companies in Wyoming Valley who would use this wood, and hence it would be a common road, and not used for the promotion of one coal bed, as would be the case at Scranton, where the land for some four miles square is owned by one set of proprietors, having but one interest, namely, the building up of that place and making all others tribu taries to it. Let us examine this subject further. In the article alluded to, the grade of the Cobb'iJ Gap Road is held up as being more easy than ours. One simple fact will put this all right. The Cobb's Gap i3 compelled to overcome precisely the same elevation from the same basis as the Delaware, Lehigh and Wyoming Valley Road,, but the difference in the facilities to do this are greatly in our favor. The Lackawana Valley is 19 miles, while the Wyoming Yalley is 32 miles in length. Scranton is situated 13 miles from the eastern termination of the Lackawana Valley, and six miles from its western verge, which it connects with the Wyo ming Valley. It is on the outer rim of the Lackawana and at the base of the el vation which it is compelled to Overcome with its Cobb's Gap Road ; the elevation (as before remarked) to overcome is tho same in both routes, and is 1,100 feet. Th6 distance from Scranton to this sum mit the only distance i t can employ to as cend it is six miles all told, because it is placed in the very jaws of the gorge it is compelled to employ, and cannot; move a j mile to the right or left to obtain distance. This fetters ,the Cobb's Gap Road hope lessly to the employment of a grade of very nearly 200 feet to the mikunless it can run down into the Wyoming T'cioy 'to obtain its distance and ih tvn'nacf. sett's Gap Road, is placed before the New ' i a i f xi t 'r.. qT . !i 1 i L- I, i i you will have coal of the purest quahtv 1 ork public, as the only practicable mode JA.

Now any and pants. unprejudiced mind may see at once that After eyeing the proceedings for some this whole distance may be easily employ- time in silence, he rose up and told the ed, if necessarv, to overcome the summit' crowd that he wanted to make them a from our town. The entire eastern slope; of the mountain, along which our road would pass, is a gentle declivity, and so unbroken that it would cost little more to grade a railroad along its side than to construct a common countrvroad. and in connection with this advantage, the route along the said slope would pass over the vast seams of our best coal, nearly to the summit of this mountain. The center of our Yalley is the Renter of the Coal Basin, from which the'seams spread for miles across the same and high up on the mountain-side. This surely i3 interesting to New-Yorkers, who desire clveap and 'pure fuel. The elevation of the Mill Creek Gap, above Wilkesbarre is 800 feet ; from that Gap to the extreme summit, which is 300 additional feet is 11 miles ; thus, to overcome the whole eleva tion of 1,100 feet in a direct line, neces sary to pass from the Wyoming Valley to the Delaware Water Gap, 36 miles of distance can be advantageously employ ed. I speak from actual knowledge, and my statements can be corroborated by Col. Allen, who is now engaged in ma king the actual surveys and estimates, with two competent corps of assistants, one at each end of the line. The exami nation made thus fai', which is about 1 0 miles toward the summit from our town, proves to be at a grade of a fraction over 60 feet to the mile. We wait for his re- port with perfect confidence that it will be found satisfactory to all our friends I by repeating ah offence, I was determined f Itio mnrri tonf in rn Infirm frifnrmninrri"' r... . -r Zr:: : .r: 'Tu TTrt ish my somewhat lennthv communication Coal has been mirchased from individ .... 4 uals here for some of your companies at from G3 to 85 cents per tun, ready pre-- ; pared and in the cars ready for market; and at this price has paid well to the sel lers.

What, then, is there to hang a doubt upon in building this road of 55 miles in length, which brings the great juglar vein of tho Anthracite coal formation within five hours of your city ? Does any one believe that New-York will cease using Anthracite coal ? I call our formation the jugular vein, from the fact that besides numerous les ser seams, our whole valley is underlaid by the mighty white ash veins of 25 feet and the red ash of 27 feet in thickness.

The effect of this speech was tremen dous, and he was re-elected by an over whelming majority. "Kiss Me Mamma, Do Kiss Me." The child was so sensitve so like that little, shrinking plant that curls up at a breath, and shuts its heart from the light. The only beauties she possessed were an exceedingly transparent skin, and large; mournful blue eyes. I had been trained by a very stern, strict, conscientious mother ; but I was a hardy plant, rebouding after every shock. Misfortune could not daunt, though dis cipline tamed me. I fancied, alas, that I must go through the same routine with day, , on lt4 h.A ax'a m(i pdinrv l vnm.h her severely. 1 was very sen bus all day, and oh sending her to her little couch, I said: 'Now, my daughter, to punish you, and to show you how very naughty you have been, I shall not kiss you to-night." She stood looking at me, astonishment personified, with her great mournful eyes wide open. I suppose she had forgotten her misconduct till then, and I left her with the big tears trickling down ' her cheeks, and her lips quivering. Presently I was sent for. " Oh, mam ma, will you kiss me? I can't go to sleep, if you don't," she sobbed, every tone of her voice trembling; and she held out her hand. Now came the struggle between love and what I falsely termed duty. " 3Iother can't kiss you, Ellen," I whis pered, though every word choked me. Her hand touched mine; it was very hot, but I attributed it to her excitement. She then turned her grieved face to tho wall, and I left the room for tho night. It might have been about twelve, when I was awakened by the nurse. Apprchen- sive, l ran to tuecmid s cnainner. Ellen did not know me ; she was sitting up, crimsoned to the throat, her eyes so bright that 1 almost drew back aghast at their glance. From that night a raging fever drank up her life and what, thiukyou, was tho incessant plaint poured into my angiished heart? "Oh, kiss me, mother do kiss me. I ca?it go to sleep. You'll kiss your little Ellon, won't you, mother! Izanrt gO to sleep. Holy little child, she did go to sleep one grey morning, never to wake again. Her hand was looked in mine, and all my veins icv with its gradual chill. Faintlv tho ;i;ht faded in those beautiful eves.
