The Old Story.
Mamma, mamma, young Eddie Joucs, Who called for mc last night, And by the fallen oak sat down, Beneath the moon's soft light, Whispered so many pretty things About his country home, And took my hand in. his and asked If I would be his own. He called me beautiful, and said My hands were snowy white, My lips were coral and my eyes Were like the diamond's light; And then he sighed and looked so sad, And seemed in such distress, That when he asked mc to be his, I had to tell him yes. Fie! fie! my daughter, Eddie Jones, A nice young man may be, But "he can't keep a hotel," nor A husband be to thee; He's nothing but a country clown, And does not own a red, Before I see you marry him, I'd rather both were dead. But dear mamma, young Eddie Jones, Is wealthy, I am sure, For old Spondulicks died and left Five thousand pounds or more; And all this money is his own, Besides his country home ; Mamma, mamma, I'd rather be His bride, than live alone. I know he loves the vory ground, On which my shadow falls, And will delight to furnish mc, With bonnets, hoops and shawls ; And more than all that gold can buy, And more than my petted vine, That climbs upon the porch?I love To know his heart is mine. Five thousand pounds ??and all his own! IVhew, daughter, what a pile! Not that I care a fig for wealth, Therefore you needn't smile. But Eddie Jones has won your heart, And loves you too, I guess ; So, when he asks your hand again, Just say, I acquiesce. Women and Marriage. I have speculated a great deal upon matrimony. I have seen young and beau? tiful women, the pride of the gay circles, married?as tho world goes?well! Some have moved into costly houses, and their friends have all come and looked at their fine furniture and splendid arrangements for happiness, and they have gone away and committed them to their sunny hopes, cheerfully and without fear. It is natural to be sanguine for the young, and at such times I am carried away by similar feel? ings. I love to get, unobserved, into a corner and watch the bride in her white attire, and with her smiling face and soft eyes moving before me in the pride of her life, woave a waking dream of her future happiness, and persuade myself that it will be true. I think how they will set upon the lux? uriant sofa as tho twilight falls, and build gay hopes, and murmur in low tones tho now unforbidden tenderness, and how thrilling the allowed kisses and beautiful endearmentsof wedded life will make even their parting joyous, and how gladly they will come back from the crowd and the empty mirth, and of the gay, to each oth? er's quiet company. I picture to myself that young creature, who blushes even now at his hesitating caresses, listing eag? erly for his footsteps as the night steals on, and wishing that he would come; and when he enters at last, and with art affec tion as undying as his pulse, folds her to his bosom, I can feel the very tide that goes flowing through his. heart, and gaze with him on her graceful form as she moves about him for the kind oflices of affection, soothing all his unquiet cares and making him forget even himself in her young and unshadowed beauty. I go forward for years and seo her luxi rious hair put soborly away from her brow, and her girlish graces ripening into dignity,and bright lovliness chastened into affection. Iler husband looks on her with a proud eyo, and shows her the same fer? vent love and dolieatc attentions that first won her; and fair children have grown up about them, and they go on full of honor and untroubled years, and are re? membered when they die. I say I love to dream thus whon I go to givo tho young bride joy. It is the natural tendency aud feeling touched by loveliness that fears nothing for itself; and if ever I yield todark er feeling it is because the light of the picture is changed. I am not fond of dwelling upon such changes, and I will not minutely now. I allude to it only be? cause I trust that my simple page will be read by some of the young and beautiful beings who move daily across my path; and I would whisper to them as they glide by joyously and confidently tho se? cret of an unclouded future. The picture I have drawn above is not peculiar. It is colored, like the fancies of the bride; and many an hour will she sit, with her rich jewels lying loose in her fin? gers, and dream such dreams as these. She believes them, too?and she goes on for a while undeceived. The evenings are not too long when they talk of plans of happiness, and the quiet meal is still pleasant with delightful novelty of mutu? al reliance and attention. There comes soon, however, a time when personal top? ics becomo bare and wearisome,and slight attentions will not alone keep up the so? cial excitement. There are intervals of silence and detected symptoms of weari? ness, and tho husband first, in his man? hood, breaks in upon the hours they wcro , to spend together. I cannot follow it cir? cumstantially. There come long hours of restlessness, and terrible misgivings of each other's -worth and affection, until,by and by, they can conceal their uneasiness no longer, and go out separately to seek relief, and lean upon a hollow world for support, which one, who was their lover and friend, could not give them ! Heed this, ye who are winning, by your innocent beauty, the affections of high minded and thinking beings ! Remember that he will givo up the brother of his lieart, with whom he has had ever a fel? lowship of mind; the society of his eo< emp orary runners in the race of fame, who have held him a stern companionship, and frequently in Iiis passionate love he will break away from the arena of his burning ambition, to come and listen to the <;voicc of the charmer." It will bewilder him at first, but it will not long; and then, think you, that an idle blandishment will claim the mind that has been used for years to an equal communion ? Think you that he will give up for a weak dalliance the animating themes of men and the search into the mysteries of knowledge ? Oh, no, lady ! believe me?no ! Trust not your influence to such light letters! Credit not the old-fashioned absurdity that wo? man's is a secondary lot?ministering to the necessities of her lord and master. It is ahighor destiny I would award you. If your immortality is as complete and your gift of mind is as capablo as ours, I would charge you to water the undying bud, and give yourself a healthy culture, and open its beauty to the sun, and then you may hope that when your life is bound with another, you may go on equally and with a fellowship that shall pervade every earthly interest.? Washington Irving. - Music in the Mammoth Cave. " Were you ever in the Mammoth Cave ? It is, Avith all its wondcis, the most Godforsaken, dreary, gloomy spot mortal ever entered. Yet there is some strange mystic power in the place to transfigure the weakest, most wretched music into harmony lit for tho celestial spheres. " After poking about in the bowels of the earth for three or four hours, visitors to tho cave arrive at Echo river, where they embark on a disgustingly muddy scow, or if the party is large enough, two or three wretched boats arc brought into requisition. The women are all dressed in fancifully colored bloomer dresses, and with uplifted lanterns, present a strange and weird appearance as tho boat is push? ed from the shore, and floats down into the black gloom, the lights reflecting themselves on the surface of the deadly still water,lighting up with strange effect the arch of rock overhead. When they are fairly out of sight we enter the other boat, and ourselves push out into ti e dark stream. Dark, awfully dark, it is. The dark river of death finds on earth no more vivid parallel than this. You know, in tho first picture of Cole's Voyage of Life, the gloomy river of the past from which floats out into life and light the little boat of the baby voyager. The stream issues from a dark rocky cavern, nvysterious and unknown. Such a stream is this on which we are embarked. Silent and gloomy, dark and mysterious, it serves as a type of the past and the future; of the past mystery Avhcnce all life evolves, of the inscrutable future whither all life tends. " The feeling of security is not very great. The boats sink down almost to the water's edge, and the perpendicular slippery rock on either side oilers no ledge on which a shipwrecked voyager might find a temporary footing. Above, sometimes so low that you must crouch to avoid it, and again so high as to bo scarcely visible, rises the rock-roof, while tho water in which you glide is thirty feet in depth, and as cold as the brow of a corpse. There is no sound but the rippling made by the boat; not a cricket along the shoreless stream, not a fish to plunge up and flash a moment in the air before returning to its watery home?no sympton of life?no sound, no motion, save that made by ourselves. " Hark! there is a sound! Far off a dolicato shade of music, so faint as to seem the ghost of some wandering echo. TJut by degrees it increases. It becomes clear and defined. Rich harmony, trem? bling with strange sensuous wildness, flut? tering around tho rocky projection,?, swell? ing in waves of harmony to the arched roof above. Now it appears to come from one direction, now from another. Anon a higher note or strain is heard, like some clear voico rising above a migh? ty chorus. Never did syren sing more magic songs to listening traveler?never did the mysterious maiden of Lurleiburg chant more entrancing melody to the un? wary boatman who floats along the moon? lit Rhino. " Suddenly a turn of the boat brings you opposite a break in the perpendicular rocky shore; and, perched upon a mass of broken rock, you sec a party of four ne? groes playing upon violins and a cornet. Those are the syrens, these the Lurlines of Echo river. Out on the earth's surface their music would be merely quaint and odd; but here, in the Mammoth Cave, it is weird and unearthly. " Floating away, out of sight of the above minstrels?who are, in fact, the barber, boot-black, or waiter from the ho? tel at the mouth of the cave?their music j resum?s its supernatural tones and effect, and sp, until we land at the opposite shore of the dark river, it haunts the ear with its peculiar harmony, while ever af? ter it forms the most vivid reminisccnco of a visit to the Mammoth Cave." --*? Courtesy. The innumerable fine and delicate threads which true courtesy weaves, as woof and warp, constitute the strength of the social fabric. Courtesy is love em? bodied, and rendered active and visible; and love attracts into union and oneness, and when contiguous water drops rush into mutual bosoms and form river and lake. Conventional observances may drive men into combinations, as external hoops force the staves to become the barrel and the cask. But the drawings of love will attract even through impediment and barrier, like the magnetic influence that operates through the vessel upon the mimic floating swan. Courtesy is essentially different from politeness, etiquette, manners. These may become mere marks of supreme sel? fishness and hatred; and they may be 011I3- exhibitions for praise and profit. Courtesy has, indeed, no special form or manner, and yet never wars with suitable and decorous conventionalisms. Courtesy is inherent, and ever the same; but forms of politeness are shaped by accident; hence the etiquottc now reigning may be dethroned in time, and the politeness of to-day become rudeness or vulgarity. Courtesy cannot be taught or learned; it cannot be put on or laid aside. Cour? tesy is felt?mere politeness seen. The former Avins love, the latter respect. The one bows gracefully and profoundly; the other would lay down a life. To become polite, read Chesterfield; to become cour? teous, read the Bible. Abraham, the. father of the faithful, and Paul, the Apos? tle of the Gentiles, bowed indeed with courtesy, grace, respectfully; but it, was their courtesy, manifested in look, word, tone, manner, that revealed their heart love, and melted other hearts. The writer was passing once along a narrow pavement. A young man, in coarse apparel, at our approach, stepped aside, with great alacrity, and into the mud edging the path, lie did not how, ho waved no hand, ho moved without grace, and yet the whole was evident courtesy. Alter passing, the thought arose, should we not acknowledge and thank for the behaviour so unusual in a young man in this brazen age. "We went back. Offer? ing our hand, wc said: "Young man, shake hands with me!" Certainly, sir. but why do you wish it ?" Because you are a kind-hearted fellow, and a true gen? tleman ; you gave all the path to me?" "Sir, I would step into the gutter for an elderly man !" "God bless you, young man ! May you become a believer in our Lord Jesus Christ, whose servant I pro? fess myself, and may we meet in Heaven, if wc never meet on earth !" Tears stood in the eyes of both; and when we said good-bye, our hands seemed to lie in a love tic, binding our hearts; and wc were at that moment improved as citizens and republicans, and without be? coming red, black, or any other political colour. -_-0 Nature.?Nature is no spendthrift, but takes the shortest way to her ends. As the general says to his soldiers : " if you want a fort build a fort," so nature makes every creature do its own work, and get its living. Is it planet, animal, or treo? The planet makes itself. The animal cell makes itself, then what it wants. Every creature, wren or dragon, shall make its own lair. As soon as there is life there is self-direction and absorbing and using of material. Life is freedom; life is the di? rect ratio of its amount. You may bo sure the new born is not inert. Lifo works both voluntary and supernaturally in its neighborhood. Do you suppose he can be estimated by his weight in pounds, or that he is contained in his skin, this reaching, radiating, jaculating fellow? The smallest candle fills a mile with its rays, and the palpillai of a man run out to every stai\ "When there is something to be done the world knows how to get it done. The vegetable eye makes leaf, pe ricap, root, bark, or thorn, as the need is; the first cell converts itself into stomach, mouth, nose, or nail, according to the want; the world throws its life into a hero or a shepherd, and puts him where he is wanted. Dante and Columbus were Italians in their time; they would be Russians or Americans to-day. Things ripen, new men come. The adaptation is not capricious. The ulterior aim, the purpose beyond itself, correlation by which planets subside and crystalize, then ani? mate beasts and men, will not stop, but will work into finer particulars, and from finer to finest.?Emerson. -o The U. S. Flag at Texas.?Wc learn from the oldest sea captain in this city that last Sunday there was not a singlo vessel in this port that bore the United States flagatits mast-head, as had always been the custom. During a rosidencc here of nearly twenty-five years, he has never before known a Sunday pass without wit? nessing this honor paid to our national flag. "With this exception, it is believed there has not been a Sunday since annex? ation when the Stars and Stripes were not seen to wave from the shipping in our harbor.?Galveston ( Texas) News. 15tk. j Boston, Saturday, Dec. 29.?There is no disguising the fact that Massachusetts is ready to respond promptly to any de? mand made upon her for troops to sustain tho Union and the laws. I learn to-day, from the highest authority, that seven thousand troops can be put in marching order on twenty-four hours' notice, and that one hundred and forty-five thousand men are enrolled in the militia of this State. Of this number twenty thousand could be easily mustered. The financial resources of Massachusetts were never in better condition for such an emergency, and the people are enthusias? tic to be enrolled. Adjutant General Abbott, of New Hampshire, arrived here this afternoon from Washington, and left immediately for Concord, with the intention of recom? mending to Gov. Goodwin that the Gran? ite State be immediately put upon a war footing. Considerable excitement exists in con? sequence of the reports that the muskets removed from the Springfield Armory have been distributed over the South. Mr. Whitney, Collector of this port, late Su? perintendent of the Armory at Spring? field, returned from there to-night?hav ing been there, it is supposed, with refer? ence to the report from Washington to The Herald, that 20,000 muskets have re? cently been taken from the Armory and sold to Virginia. The feeling is deep and not to be misin? terpreted. There is no mistaking the fact that Macsachusctts is in earnest in this crisis. The merchants arc plucky, and the name of Anderson is uppermost in every conversation. Charleston, Jan. 1,1861.?It is known here that a man named McKibben, for? merly in the Philadelphia custom house, has been appointed Collector of the port of Charlcscon, as successor to Mr. Col cock, by President Buchanan. The Har? riet Ltine will be anchored off Charleston to collect tho revenue. No troops have been ordered to the South by the authorities at Washington. Reliable information has been received here that Forts Pulaski and Jackson, in the harbor of Savannah, have been occu? pied by Georgians. Charleston, Jan. 2,1861.?The Colum? bia Artillery were most enthusiastically received here. They have gone to Morris' Island. There are 1,500 Carolina troops now in active service at different posts around the harbor. Washington, Jan. 2, 1861.?Senator Hunter introduced into the Senate a bill to cede to the withdrawing States the forts, arsenals, and dock-yards. &c., within their limits. Crittondcn's resolution was up. Mr. Baker made a strong argumen? tative speech in reply to Senator Benja? min. In the House, a petition and resolutions were presented from New Jersey, asking an amendment of the Constitution, to quiet the present antagonism in the cottn trv. They were referred. The balance of the day's session was occupied in par? liamentary tactics to prevent action on Hohnan's substitute against the right of secession. Also, in inquiries into the ex? pediency, of coercion by the employment of the army and navy. Norfolk, Ya.. January 4.?There is great excitement in this city in cons.' quence of a report that four companies of artillery had been ordered from Portress Monroe to Charleston. Lieut. J. H. Worth has resigned. The Brooklyn steamer is coaling and taking in stores, and is evidently getting ready for a cruise?reported for Charles? ton. Charleston, January 3.? Despatches received in this city from Missouri states that great excitement exists in that State. She will stand by South Carolina. -0 When a man gets in liquor and goes on the railroad track and gets run over, we think a very good standing verdict like the following would be proper: " A coro? ner out West recently reasoned out a ver? dict more sensible than one half the ver? dicts usually rendered. It appears that an Irishman, conceiving that a little pow? der thrown upon some green wood would facilitate its burning, directed a small stream from a keg upon the burning pile; but not possessing a hand sufficiently quick to cut this off at the desirable; mo? ment, he .was blown into a million pieces. The following was the verdict, delivered with great gravity by the official: ' It can''; be suicide,' because he didn't mean to kill himself; it wasn't 'visitation of God,' because he wasn't struck by light? ning he didn't die for want of breath, for he hadn't anything left to breathe with; its plain he didn't know what be was about, so I shall bring in?died for want of CDmmon sense.'" --4t> The New York Repress says: '-For the disruption now taking place in this republic?for the wreck of commerce and trade?for the bankruptcies occuring?for the hundreds, if not thousands and thou? sands, of laborers thrown out of of cm ploy?the Republicans are responsible. They, and they alone, by a change of policy and practice, can rescue the coun? try from the doom of civil war to which thc3r arc dragging it." THE GLOBE, the official taper of congress. IPUBLISH now mv annual Prospectus of THE DAILY GLOBE, and the CONGRESSIONAL GLOBE, to remain subscribers, and inform those who may desire to subscribe, that Congress will meet on the first Monday of next December, when I shall resume publishing the above-named papers. They have been published so long, that most pub? lic men know their character, and therefore I deem it. needless to give a minute account of the kind of matter they will contain. THE DAILY GLOBE will contain a report of the Debates in both branches of Congress as taken down by reporters, equcnl, at least to any corps of short hand-writers in this, or in any other country. A majority of them will each, be able to report, verbatim, ten thousand words an hour, while the av? erage number of words spoken by fluent speakers rarely exceeds seven thousand five hundred words an hour. When the debates of a day do not make more than forty-live columns, they will appear in The Daily Globe of the next morning, which will contain, also, the news of the day, together with such editorial articles as may be suggested by pass? ing events. THE CONGRESSIONAL GLOBE AND APPEN DIX will contain a report of all the Debates in Con? gress, revised by the speakers, the Messages of the President of the United Slates, the Annual Reports of the Heads of the Executive Departments, the Laws parsed during the sessions, am*, copious in? dexes to all. They will be printed on a double royal sheet, in book form, royal quarto size, each number containing sixteen pages. The whole will make, it is believed, at least 12,000 pages. This is acknowledged to be the cheapest work ever sold in any country, whether a reprint or printed from manuscript copy, taking for data the average num? ber of words it contains. The comiug session will, without doubt, be an unusually interesting one, because the debates will, in a great measure, be upon the policy of the Pres? ident elect, and The Globe will be, as it has been for many years past, the only source from which full debates of Congress can bo-obtained. THE CONGRESSIONAL GLOBE AND APPEN? DIX pass free through the mails of the United States, as will be seen by reading the following Joint Resolution passed by Congress the 0th of Au? gust, 18-52: Joint Resolution prodding for the attribution of the Law* of Congress and the Debates thereon. With a view to the cheap circulation of the laws of Congress and the debates contributing to the true interpretation thereof, and to make free the communication between the representative and con? stituent bodies: Re it Resolved by the Senate and House oj Representatives of the United State* of America in Congress Assembled.
