1 Uo Faces.
BX BOBXBT BWOTJiKAH.
A terror is in the ci ' y,
B* night and by day.
And whenever that terror passes
1 tremble and pray,
And the eye of my soul closes swiftly
To shut it away.
Not tho sneer of tho worldling,
I he smirk ot the saint,
Not tbe poor lost women
With the r smile of paint,
Bat faces, and over faces,
With a warning fa at.
Faces, and ever faces,
They pass on the stream
Piteous hum tn 'aces,
lake things in a dream ;
Morning and uighr, and most awful
In the gadijjht steam.
Faces. terri""le faces,
With a ta'e unsaid;
Fixed human faces,
Whence the IL-lu has fled;
Face?, and ever faces.
V.Ticro tho soul is dead.
Faces, lost pale faces,
Of the rcb or the poor.
Faces of hearts where meanness
Hath eat t .< the coro.
Faces-the signs of spirits
That muse no more.
The sadness ot these faces
Is sad bf yond belief.
Meaner than the shrill sorrow
Of the harlot or the thief ;
Tho gladness of ihcse faces
Is sadder than their grief.
Oh. there seems hopo for evil,
rr Though bloodiest crime befall.
But lifo that hath neither beauty
Nor foulness-it is so rmall 1
Alas, for the frozen spirits
That do not stir at alli
They father the gold and raiment,
They buy and thev pay ;
But, oh I nt the glimpse of their faces
I tremble a d pray.
And the eye of my soul closes quickly
To shut them away.
DREAM AND REALITY.
The Fate and Feelings of the "Semi
(From the London Saturday Review.]
The first yawn of her spouse is, no denbt, a
severe trial to the vanity ot a bride. There are
few girls who have not built pretty castles in
Spain of a felicity uninterrupted by boredom
or butchers' bills, and there are, without ques?
tion, eomc quiet people who fancy they attain
to it. The country parsonage, for instance,
often contains two beingB who smile benienly
on each other for long tracts ol years, whose
mornings and noons aod nights are passed in
one another's society, and who reach fchree
Eooro-and-ten without the slightest suspi.ion
of weariness or desire for a wider cir
, , _-Ia Otho* words, there are
cte of syrups . . -"ral to vegetate,
vegetables to whom it is n?*.- -???TB
as there are women to whom it is na...
Uve. And life, if it means any thing, means
variety and change. I; is edd to think how on
that cue yawn hangs the freedom of years
to come. It is the bugle that sings truce. It
is a tacit convention which leaves tbe husband
his club and the wife her independence. No
people can be more touchingly attentive to
each other's wants, The spouse finds his
breakfast on the table, his Times cut ?or him,
his letters arranged, his overcoat brushed
in the hali, the time-table open at the
proper pace. The one return asked for is
that of absence for the day. A sensible
husband agrees with the pretty reasoner
before him that "a man should have something
to do," that loitering at home is hardly a man?
ly thing, that constant association blunts the
edge of affection, that he "has a wife to think
of now," and a world to win for her, that if he
entirely gives up his old friends she will never
forgive herself. The sensible man, we repeat,
takes his umbrella, and leaves the pretty little
reasoner his name and her freedom. Not that
she has tho least passion for liberty. To the
world she sighs gently over th? downfall of her
hopes. Her one joy would be to have her hus?
band with her. She would be delighted if he
found more pleasure in her drawing-room,
more charms in her society. She regrets
that while other people seem to find her at?
tractive, her attraction loses ita pp^er over
the one heart ia the world for wbtefi. she oared.
And sometimes in ari evil hour the one heart
listens and believes. He leaves his umbrella
in tho hali. The dub sees him no more; men
chat in the billiard room over his luxurious?
ness and the pretty little face that prisons him
at home. Only the little face itself is not quite
so pretty as it was in the tenderness of its re?
gret. The resigned little martyr has no notion
of being robbed of the halo of m&rtyrdon. In?
sensibly the spouse finds it harder and harder
to remain at her feet. He hates music, and he is
whirled from opera to opera. The piano is
hard at work throughout the day, and
conversation will run on nothing but Schumann
and Weber. He likes politics, and abUnk
little ff.ee listens as well as it may to hi J sto?
ries of the last division, or his theories as to
the possible Premier. He is used to his quiet
evening at his club, to bis cigar and his piquet;
and he finds a mob in the drawing-room, and
the smell of the divine weed absolutely insuffer?
able to his wife. lu the long run he takes to
his old life of isolation, and the neglected be?
ing wins the sympathy of her sex os she r?as?
sumes her position of se mi-detached wife.
And, unfortunately, she now ar.d then
wins the sympathy of the other sex, too.
Men wonder how Brown con treat his
wile BO badly; can leave her to neglect
and to a thousand temptations. He has
but one defender, and that is the wife whom
he abandons. Sbe could have wished it had
been otherwise; that the dreams of her girl?
hood had been realized; tx it a sympathy of
soul bad bound them together. As it it, she
will only accept just a very bttle perfectly in?
nocent sympathy elsewhere. Friendship of
the purest and highest kind miy be Buffered to
administer its inadequate consolations. But
the litany of the Church ol Plato must be
chanted without a note of pity for herself or
blame for her spouse. Between such clashing
rocks the friend must steer his boat into that
sweet mysterious Bea. It is with a touching
reserve that the victim of his caprice accepts
her liberty, for she is after all a wii'e, a'nd
her ring gives her a liberty denied to
maidens. She is musical, aud eau practice
for whole afternoons with that gallant young
tenor in the Guards. She is artistic, and what
can be more charming than a tete-a-tete with
that blushing Carmine over his sketch-book ?
She has a taste for poetry, and poets couch at
her feet to read sonnets in the tender light of
the parting day. Tho wide circle of friendship
opens before her. She listens to the confidence
of happy and unhappy lovers. Life becomes
varied, busy, interesting. Her good temper,
her vivacity, her sunny happiness redress the
wrongs ot ber hom 9, and society borrows a
gontle light and sweetness from the semi-de?
tached wifs. The picture is pretty; but it bas
its terrible dangers.
The Tnrf- Racing and Trotting.
The celebrated race horse Kentucky, now
owned by Mr. A. Belmont, tho president of the
American Jockey Club, has finally retired from
the turf, and his futnre career will be devoted
to the stud. In the entire annals of tho Ameri?
can turf, no horse possesses a more brilliant
record than this great son of Lexington and
Magnolia. During the wholo of his career he
was only beaten once, and that was when he
was notoriously amiss, and started against thc
urgent advice of his trainer. This waa in the
first Jersey Derby, won by Norfolk, whose sub?
sequent immediato departure tor California
prevented a second meeting between the two
great racers, Kentucky was bred by Mr. John
M. Clay, of Ashland, Ky., who owns the dam.
Magnolia, and was by bim sold to Messrs.
Travers & Osprood, of New York, along with
Areola, when both were two-year-olds,
for $7003. He remained the property of
these gentlemen until he was six years
old, and during his racing career, while
in their banda, he ian fourteen races,
and only lost one, the Derby above men?
tioned. The value of his aggregate winnings
was near $40.000. He was tlrm sold lo Mr.
Leonard W. Jerome for $40,000, and it was
while owned by that gentleman, after standing
some time at the stud, that be ran and lost bis
great time match for $5000 a side; being back?
ed to mn four miles in 7 minutes 20 seconds,
carrying 120 pounds. He was subsequently
purchased by the Annies wood stable (a racing
confederacy, consisting of Messrs. Belmont.
Travers and Huntei) for the alleged pnce of
$35.000; and when that stable broke up last fall,
and the sto ck were sold by public auction, Ken?
tucky was knocked down to Mr. Belmont for
$15,000. He had a short time previously par?
tially brok? down in bis training;, and Mr. Bel?
mont baa cow entirely withdrawn, him from the
turf, and his services will in future be devoted
to the stud. He will stan 1 at "Tho Nursery. '
near Babylon, L. L. a country"eoat of Mr. Bel?
mont's, in charge of that gentleman's trainer,
Jacob Pincus; and judging from the fine prom?
ising stock be has already got, his career at
the stud will oe as brilliant as it was on the
The racine stable of J. Wi Pennock, trained
by E. Snediker, and comprising James A.
Conolly, Lizzie McDonald, a two year old by
Lexington and two by TJnclo Vic, with threo
yearlings, has left Paterson, New Jersey, and
gone to Mobile, Alabama, for the purpose of
commencing their training preparation for the
summer racing campaign as early in the sea?
son as possible. The mild and genial weather
enjoyed in tho South during the winter and
early spring enables trainers to gst their
horses into work months before Northern train?
ers can commence exercising, thus giving tho
former a vast advantage over the latter in
point of condition of their horses. The racing
stable of Captain Moore and Mr. J. Coffey, ot
New York, is also withering at Mobile, but will
arrive at Jerome Park in April.
Tbe Metario Jockey duo of New Orleans

There has becu a great chango in thc views of deal?
ers iu cotton during the past few weeks. A mouth
ago thc venera! impression was tint prices (24a25e)
were two high aud could not bo maintiiued. Now
thc probability of a declino is not even discussed,
and the excited state ot the. markets lu re and at the
South show- that the pressure or orders to buy ex
reeds the supplv. It will be noticed in our table
showing the cost ol' cottou laid do*n in Liverpool,
that prices on this side are about Vd higher than ou
We know that order? to buy cition to arrive have
been cabled to Liverpool oil this week, most ol'
which hove been filled. 'J be price ol cotton afloat is
now up to the quototionon the spot. The leoorte
thence > cstexday of dullness, caused by Manchester,
followed immediately by tbe closing report of more
firmness and active, shows that some influence more
powerful tban Manchester is at work.
The actual receipts this week were about 70,000
bales. We have added 4700 bales to the New Orleans
receipts this week, to moke our totals correct. There
have been received at the ports since 1st September,
1,111,882 bales, of which exporters have taken 692,077
bales; spinners 27-2,360 bales, and the stocks have
increased 247,439 hales. Tbe excess ia receipts over
last year has now been reduced to 98,344 bales. 1 be
weather in some parts of the - onth has been bad for
some time oast, and the roads are not in a proper
condition for the free doh'very of cotton from the
plantations. 1 his may have kept back some cotton,
but tho rain? have injured the oprn cotton in tbe
fields. Planters are now boldirg back to some ex
I tent Transit cottons are mere in favor, and there is
more willingness to take cotton by sail from the
