A RAMBLE AMONG AUTHORS.
Though man with man can scarce agree
Upon a given thing,
There are to whom we bow the knee,
And to whose names we cling.
Few ladies are without a " Hood,"
And ev'ry way you turn
Y.ou meet with many people " Gay,"
And silent ones quite " Sterne."
The race is seldom to the "Swift"
(Th»B fact is true, 1 hope ;)
The sternest Protestants admire
A certain famous " Pope."
The butcher has his harmlesss " Lamb,"
(Which, sooth to tell, lie kills;)
And almost ev'ry country kuown
Claims its especial "Mille."
"Holland" is taken by the Dutch,
And there awhile we'll stay ;
While folks who like not brighter hues
Are partial to the "Gray."
The man of staves his "Cooper" has
The papers ull can "Reid
While ev'ry wilier 1ms his "Saxe,"
And hunters draw a "Bede."
Most women "Marryatt" the age
That others did before ;
And now, although it gives me "Paine,"
1 cannot tell you " Moore."
The Human Tide kuom West and
East.— It has been already mentioned
that a letter from one of the Liverpool
steamship agencies, received at Now York
on the 12th inst. says an average of five
thousand emigrants may be expected at
New York for the next live or six weeks
to come. Notiiing like the pressure for
passage, it is said, was ever known before.
A tide had already set in this spring of
extraordinary magnitude and volume.
There arrived iu New York from Europe
during the month of May over fifty thou
sand ; in the preceding month of April
there were over twenty-seven thousand,
and for the five months from January 1st.
to May 31st, the number was upwards of
one hundred and two thousand. Rut the
arrivals for the first seven days of the
present month are still more remarkable.
In that week there arrived ten thousand
nine hundred and seventy-eight. The
greatest number of these immigrants sail
ed from Liverpool, aud are nearly all
Irish. Rut the Germans, too, como in
great numbers, for during the same period
there arrived from the two ports of Bre
men and Hamburg over thirty-two thou
sand. The rest are from Glasgow, Lon
don, Copenhagen and Antwerp. The in
crease is large over the immigration of last
year. It is also said that on the other
side of the continent emigration is increa
sing. Every steamship arriving at San
Francisco from Chiua aud Japan brings a
load of Asiatics. The completion of the
Pacific railroad, and increasing commer
cial relations with the East is likely to
swell the stream of emigration from China
to a flood, which will not only fertilize the
mining regions, hut spread to the great
Valley of the Mississippi. There is room
enough for the labor of all that can come,
both in the West and South,
national domain, which is now inhabited
only by a population as large as that of
France, is capable of supporting as many
people as Europe. There is no danger
that the Caucasian race will fail to domi
nate over the other elements of the pop
ulation, no matter how heterogeneous, and
assimilate them in due timo to itself.

In less than two years he had dried his

native town. As he approached he met a

ing that it has given perfect satisfaction. It has

D. F. BURTON.
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN. Jan. 29th 1859.—
"The simplicity and accuracy of its mechanism
prevent its dropping stitches, to which many oth
er machines are liable, and which has hitherto
brought the "chain stitch" into disrepute. One
cannot but admire the beauty and accuracy of its
movements, and the entire absence of all noise,
even when running at the rate of 2000 stitches
and upward per minute. This alone must prove
a great recommendation to it. Another merit is
the good workmanship. The parts are made in
terchangeable, so that in the event of accident to
the machine, any part can be replaced, at a tri
fling cost. It is, indeed, a "mechanical wonder
■ household necessity !"
