TIIE PARTING OF SUMMER. BY UBS. HUMANS. Thou'rt bearing hence thy roses, Glad summer ; fare thee well ! Thou'rt singing thy last melodics _ In every wood and dell ; the golden sunset Of thy latest lingering day. 0 ! tell ine o'er this checkered earth How hast thou passed away ? Brightly, sweet summer ! brightly Thine hours have floated by To the joyous birds of the woodland boughs— The ranges ol the sky : And brightly 'midst the garden flowers, To the happy, murmuring bee : But how to human bosoms, With all their hopes and fears And thoughts that make them eagle wings To pierce the unborn years ? But Sweet summer ! to the captive Thou hus flown in burning dreams Of the woods with all their hopes and leaves, And the blue, rejoicing streams. To the wasted and the weary, On the bed of sickness bouud ; In sweet, delirious fantasies, That charged with every sound : To the sailor on the billows, In longing wild and vain For the gushing founts, and breezy hills, And the homes of earth agam. And unto glad Summer ! How hast thou flown to me? My chainless footsteps naught have kept From thy haunts of soug and glee. Thou hast flown iu wayward visions, lu memories of the dead— In shadows from a troubled heart, O'er a sunny pathway shed; In brief and sudden strivings To fling a weight aside : 'Midst these thy melodics have ceased, And all thy roses died 1 But 0 ! thou gentle summer ! If I greet thy flowers once more, Bring me again the buoyancy, Wherewith my soul should soar. Give me to hail thy suushine With song and spirit free ; Or in a purer land than this May our uext meetiug be l HOW TO MAKE MONEY. BY F1T2-GUEKXE HALLKCK.

TIIE OLDEST CITY IN TIIE WORLD. Damascus is the oldest city in the world.—Tyre and Sidon have crumbled on the shore ; Daalbcc is a ruin ; Pal myra is buried iu the des aud Rabylon have disappear Tigris and Euphrates. j|_ mains what it was iu the days before Abraham—a centre of trade and travel_ au island of verdure in the desert—"a presidential capital," with martial and sacred associations extending through thirty centuries. It was near Damascus that Saul of Tarsus saw the light above the brightness ot the sun; the street which is called Strait, iu which it is said " he prayed," still runs through the city. The caravan comes aud goes as it did a thousand years ago ; there is still the sheik, the ass and the waterwheel; the merchants of the Euphrates and the Me diterranean still "occupy" these "with the multitude of their wares." The city which Mahomet surveyed from a neigh boring height and was afraid to enter " because it was given to man to have hut one paradise, aud for his part he resolved not to have it iu this world," is to-day what Julian called the " eye of the East," as it was in the time Isaiah of "the head of Syria." From Damascus came the damson, our blue plums, and the delicious apricot of Portugal, called damasco, damask ; our beautiful fabrieks of cotton and silk, with vines and flowers raised upou a smooth, bright ground ; the damask rose intro duced into England at the time of Henry VIII. the Damascus blade, so famous the world over for its keen edge and derful elasticity, the Becrct of tho fucture of which was lost when Tamerloe carried off the artist into Persia ; and that beautiful art of inlaying wood and steel with silver and gold, a kind of mosaic engraving aud sculpture united, called damaekeuing, with which boxes, bureaus, swords and guns aro ornamented. It is still a city of flowers and bright waters ; the streams of Lebauou and the "river of gold" still murmur and sparkle in the wilderness of tho Syriau gardens. .Nineveh kmi the aseu3 rc WOII manu The Old Decantes. —T here old decanter, and its mouth was an gaping wide; the rosy wine had ebbed away and left its crystal side ; aud tho wiud buturning, humming up and down the eides it flew, and through the reed-like hollow neck the wildest notes it blew. 1 placed it in tlie window where the blast was blowing free; and fancied that its pale mouth sang the queerest strains to me. " They tell me, puny conquerors ! the plague has slain bis ten, and war bis hundred thousands of the very best of men ; but I," 'twas thus tbo bottle spoke, " but I have conquered more than all your famous conquerors, so feared and fame I of jore. Then come, ye, youths and maidens, come drink from out went my cup the beverage that dulls the brain and dries the spirit up ; that puts to shame the conquerors that slay their scores below, for this lias deluged millions with the lava tide of woe. Though in the path of bat tle darkest waves of blood may roll, yet while I killed tho body I have damn'd the very soul. The cholera, the deadly sword such ruiu never wrought, as I, in mirth or malice, on the innocent have brought: and still I breathe upon them, and they shrink before my breath, and year by year my thousands tread the gloomy road to death. Prentice says man was the chief consid eration at the creation. IVomau was only a "side issue." NORTHERN NECK, VA. Farnuam, Va. July, 18G9. Editor of the Transcript,— Please in sert the following in your valuable paper reply to the inquiries made hy lette from Maine, New York, New Jersey and Michigan, concerning this region. The soil of the Northern Neck of Va. composed of the five counties situated between the Rappahannock and Potomac rivers, is nat urally good, and nearly uniform, being a sandy loam, well suited to the growth of sweet potatoes, melons and all early and late vegetables; if well managed will grow two crops of some kinds in one year. Some fields are in good condition, producing well, some are worn, having been long tilled in wheat and corn, and no grass seed used to keep the laud in heart. These worn fields when left out, soon grow up in brush, and when fertilized with anything that returns strength is susceptible of quick and lasting improvement. Our locality is not swampy nor unhealthy. Some of it quite roily but not mountainous, is free from stone, easily tilled, and is adapted io raising grapes, (for they grow spontane ously,) peaches, apples, figs, sugar-cane, cotton, tobacco, ground-nuts, &c. Wheat, Indian and broom com, rye, oats, clover, hops, all grow and mature well here, and are far more easily grown than in that part of New York from which I moved, (Scho harie co.) where land sells for many times the price that is asked for it here, opiuion, the same force of teams, &c. work 150 acres as easy as 100 in many parts of the North, and believe tho amount as well cultivated (taking the dif ference of climate,) would nourish at least one-third more animal life the whole year, for sheep here need little or no feed given them at any time. The climate is mild and healthful, tem perature rarely reaching over ninety de grees in summer or descending far below freezing point in winter. Mills, naviga tion, &c. are not long impeded by iee in this climate. There are several nice mill streams coursing through those counties, fed by beautiful runs from almost every farm headed by cool and durable springs. Water in wells is invariably soft, grain and lumber mills are convenient, but more mechanics and machinery are needed and might do well. At least one third of our country of Northern Neck is covered with first growth of timber, pine, white, red and black oak, chestnut, poplar, black wal nut, hickory and cedar, littlo destruction to building timber or fence by the late war. Farming here nev er has had the attention that it has at the North and farms have been more neglected since 1800 than before, but now many of the Southern people are taking hold with the Northern settlers to improve and de velop the country. The buildings most of them old fashioned, but many of them are quite good, and feuce would ol ten cost more than is asked for the farm. Iu all this vicinity there is u good moral aud even religious state of society. Sab baths are regarded, its schools well attend ed the Farnham Sunday schools having in usual attendance over 0U scholars. ° schools where all the common us well some of the higher branches are taught are supported by the people. White and col ored schools are separate. To those that inquire coneeruing the safety of moving here I would say that I am a plain speak ing union man—believe in one couutry, one flag and in republican government, eijuul rights and justice being extended to all, and wo have received very kind treat ment from all we meet, and a hearty wel come to their homes. All seem anxious to make us comfortable and contented, which you all know is necessary to enjoy ment everywhere. Although a native of the Empire State, aud dearly attached to home, friends, Ac. there, yet the induce ments of climate, soil, aud low price of lauds, ease and nearness to market, Ac. caused me to decide on becoming a Vir ginian, aud the decision is very satisfacto ry stlil. Now, farmers and all enterpris ing people of the North, may do a favor to such as arc anxious and obliged to sell, (from the effects of the late war) and y selves a great favor by cotniug and buying a home iu Virginia. There is plenty of land for sale, and in the Northern Neck it is selling from §8 to §40 per acre. Homes from village lots to 50 acres and 100 and 200 acres up to 1000 acres, can be had here. The large farms, usually, are in best condition, and have most improve ments. Do not be afruid to invest in "ood real estate, now while it is low and advan cing. I well remember a tract of land was offered my father for §100; he has since paid much more for a part, and the whole cannot be bought for §2500 to-day. Timber enough has been taken off' to put the improvements on, and last Winter uncle in western New York for not having bought land ment. Now, investments in Woolen and Cotton mills^tn Sash and Blind factories, in Shingle and Lathe mills, are needed here and would, doubtless, pay well. Gome and see that you had better leave the crow ded States, and purchase a home of as good, if not better, land iu a more mild and healthful climate, make Iu my same There was but Good our uu was grieving as an iuvest your unprove ments, (good material is at Land) and see Cities and Towns spring up around you. Readers, a full descriptive catalogue of particulars can bo obtained by writing to NV in. II. Newton <& Co. No. 23 Lexington Street, Baltimore, Maryland. They are gentlemen, doing an extensive business iu the land agency, and give entire satisfac tion to all parties. Conte nnd see these gentlemen, and they will furnish you with letters of introduction to owners of land and a guarantee, free of charge. 1 wishing to visit tho Northern Neck will leave Baltimore on Tuesdays and Fridays for the Rappahannock river, and on Mon days, Tuesdays, and Saturdays for the Po tomac. Fare, only $3. The horses, ox en, and cows kept here since tho war, are not of the first-class, but can be bought cheap for cash. Yours truly, O. M. Duncan.
