'tis dark, and the dwelling is lonely? The night lamp shines dimly, and 60 doe-thineeye; Thou art thiuking thy portion ? wearisome only, And thou wilt bo glad when 'tis thy turn to die! Watcher, look out! where the day-star is dawning? Hope in thy heart let its promise awake, And tireless and slumberless " wait for the morning;' Never a night but its morning shall break! Wanderer! 'tis dark, and the tempest is roaringRoaring above thee and rattling arouud; Demons of terror their vials are pouring Right on thy pathway, where pitfalls abound I Wanderer! 'tis better to bow than to bide it? Harmlessly o'er thee the storm-king thall ride! Deep is the chasm, 'twere death to bestride it, But yon is the valley botli eloping and wide. Weeper!

Weeper, despair not! there is that can euro thee ? Yes?even to the heart-sick a balm can be given, A draught that shall comfort and gladness insure thee Drink deeply, drink oft, for the fount is in heaven. Oh, ye who are suffering and toiling and sighing; Oh, ye who in darkness are groping your way; Who are weary of hoping and weary of trying, Who arc sure that the midnight will never bo day I charge thee take heed to this counsel and warning Stand fast by your duty, your God, and your right And patient and truthful thu9 wait for the morning, A-sured it will bring you both healing and light.

A man that I an well acquainted with, and who was not always so well to do in the world as he now ;s, I d? not say it was myself, hut it was a Scotchmni who had risen from a low beginning. Hi: outward dress did not tally well with the lin ing of his pocket: indeed the pocket when b? went to market but ill held up the rags whicl it was sewed to; to look at him you woulc have thought him not wcrth a pluck. Well one morning a cargo of hides coining into pori ho asked the owner what he would sell thf j w hole cargo for. Looking at our friend fron the head to foot, the owner could hardly re fr;ilii from laughing outright. 4 My good friend, ^ said he, 4 I think it matters little to you tin pi ice of the cargo; a single hide I should im agine would exhaust your purse.' 1 When lolkcome to buy,' said our Scotchman,4 they expeci to he treated with civility. Will you answei me a plain question ? What is the price oi the \vh"K? cargo of hides on hoard the shij Prosperity now in harbor.' The ship ownei th light the man was daft or joking, and In I said, 4 what will you ghe me for the cargo money down upon the table V 4 (iuid sir. its not for me to put a price upor your goods. Tell me what is the lowest prici voii will take?' The owner still carrying on the joke, (as h< thought) named a price, not half the aetua value. The merchant of frugal appearand [ lit his hand into his pocket, took out a shil linn and clapped it into the hands of the owner crying aloud: 4 A bargain my friend! and lie fore these witnesses,' and turning to those win had been amused by the conversation that hat passed. Viewing tli? man still in the same light ami never suspecting that he had to do with a mat nt' money, the considerate owner profleiec back the shilling to the man of rags, saying k hero my good man, though I have been cast ing some severe jokes upon you, I would no! wish to rob you of a shilling; judging fron your appearance, you have very few to spare. The buyer advanced with a firm step, am looking him in the face, said 'judging fron appearances, it may be so; but I can tell you I did uac gie you that shilling, that it must In returned in the character of an alms; that shil ling is areas of my puichase of the whole ear go; tell me, therefore, when you will delive or receive your money ; or, said he, (taking: out ins poucn, me root or an oiu stocKing wet darned and patched, heavy with gold and cnini pled with bank note*,) if any substantial paper will be. responsible for the delivery, I'll pay y< the silver down on the table this minute. Every attempt at the explanation or aecoin modatioii was in vain, and at last the owne was compelled to give up his caigo of hides a l. -s than half their value, and he received tin money agreed upon, forthw ith As it was tin only cargo that had arrived for some time, th< rugged man of money sold his hides at almos his own demand ; and he always said it wai the l>e>t bargain he ever made in his life, i ragged coat, you see, has its advantages as wel ? - i i : I a- a goou one; uui uuuu, ne\er jukc on uusi ness. Balaklava, Talavera and Hampton.? "The charge of the British cavalry at Balaklavr has been described as without precedent or par a!l<1 in military annals" says C," in the Bostoi Daily Advertiser, who refers to a similar art ii the gallant charge of Col. Anson's brigade or the "famous field of Talavera." These exploit* were performed l?efore the eyes of large arrniei in Europe and Asia.

There is, inoreovci, proof of a very decisive character, that no experiences of which the 1 mind takes the slightest cognizance, from earliest j infancy to the most extreme old age, ever become I 4Vrvw% fliA ininrnol ctriWnro nf UUUieitUCU XI VIII HIV IIIWVIII4II tfM uvtwiv w. ...v soul, however impossible it may be to recall some of those experiences during our oidinnry states of body aud mind. This proposition, which is rendered extremely probable by an iuterior contemplation of the conscious nature of the soul, it is confirmed and established by the numerous instances which might be cited, in ' which all the experience of a whole life, however minute or long forgotten, have been suddenly and almost simultaneously revived by some accident or other occurrence which brought soul and body to the brink of a total separation. A fact of this kind, which can not be otherwise than intensely interesting to the psychologist, was not long since published in the Rome *>-\ r\ M_. ,.r...ni,ni, . x .j uniiy ocutiuvi, "uo.^u cun.01 ivuvuw fv?r its truth. It is to the effect, that Bcveral years ago, A held a bond against B for several hundred dollars, having some time to run.? When the bond came due, A made diligent 3 search for it among his paper, but it was not to be found. Knowing to a certainty that the bond had not been paid or otherwise legally disposed of, A concluded to frankly inform his neighbor B of its loss, and to rely upon his sense of justice for its payment. But to his surprise, when 5 he informed him of the loss, B denied ever having given such a bond, and strongly intimated a fraudulent design on his part, in assorting that such a transaction had taken place between them. Being unable to prove his claim, A was compelled to submit to the loss of the debt, and ' aUo to the charge of dishonorable intentions in j urging the demand. Years passed away, and the affair almost ceased to be thought of, when, one day while A was bathing in Charles River, lie was seized with cramp, and came near drowning.

He then stated that while drowning, and sinking as ho supposed * to rise no more, there suddenly stood out before him, as it were in a picture, every act of his life, from his childhood to the moment that he sank j beneath the waters, and that among other acts j was that of his placing that bond in a book and ' laying it away in his bookcase. Armed with the long lost document, found in this marvelous manner, the gentleman recovered his debt with ' interest. ? Phrenological Journal. y ?? Iron Light Houses for the Florida Coast. An iron Light House to be put up on Coffin's . Patches, cti the Florida Coast, is being construe- 1 ^ ted in this city, under the superintendence <31*j r Lieut. George C. Mead, of the U. S. TY>j>o-1 [ graphical Corps, who has cliarge of the light ( house operations upon this dangerous coast.? r This light house is one of the chain projected, . which, when complete, will greatly improve the navigation of the Florida coast, as the navigator will have a succession of lights to guide him, so j located that one will always be in sight. The ^ entiie height of this structure will be about 150 feet. The light house is to be entirely of iron, , and consists of eight posts surrounding a central I post. The lower section of these posts are ? twelve inches in diameter, and each weigh about four tons. They are pointed at the ends, and will be driven by ineaus of a pile driver into the coral reef for eight or ten feet, affording a sub, stantial foundation. The light-keeper's house is I located within the third section, and from that to the lantern, which is above the seventh sec I lion, a spiral staircase winds around the centre , post, flu* whole being enclosed with boiler plate I iron. The stairway is lit by windows in each . section. The lantern is to contain a Fresncl " light of the first order, and the structure, when t complete, will be the largest iron light house in ( the world?Philadelphia Lcdycr. I It is said that in every instance where a i person is bitten by a mad dog, small pustules , make their appearance sooner or later on the I ; underside of the tongue, but generally in from ?'xtoni.:e da^a. rJ hese pustules must be open cd with a sharp pointed instrument, as they are r too tough to break of themselves, and the matter I be discharged and spit out or it will be re I absorbed, which re absorption is said to contain - the paroxysms termed hydrophobia, Thenbote s is the substance of a communication which ap? iieared iv the New-Orleans Tronic some vears since, from the pen of :i Southern physician, who * says : r "In 1832, I was called to visit a negro who t had been bitten by a mad clog, and by pursuing ? the treatment here laid down, I was successful e in curing her. This course is the same that ; was recommended by Prof. Mnroehitti, of Most cow in 1S20, and proved effectual, and my first 5 intimation of this mode was from an English i magazine, published forty years ago, containing 1 a communication from a gentleman recently returned from Tartary,^ where mad dogs are common, and this method of treatment usual and successful." i Tomboys.?The public mind is awakening to the importance of physical education, i At the recent ladies exhibition of gymnastic, i ? calisthenic and dancing exercises, given at Prof, j 1 Stewart's rooms, in Boston, Dr. J. V. C. Smith' > Mayor, in his speech to the parents and teachers s while distributing the prizes addressed them at 1 much length on the importance of thus develoji) ing the muscular apparatus of children, and i made the pertinent remark: "That the little girls f he knew when a boy, who used to climb trees and fences with the boys, and who were called i 'Tomboys' by their mothers, were now, wherever t found, leading women in society, with strong, 1 healthy bodies and minds." i Mayor Smith was right. Our girls had better J be tomboys than mincing young ladies. Under r a riirht svstem of education they would be as far fiom ono extreme as the other; but if we n must have an extreme, give us that which se i- cures strong limbs, rosy cheeks and a constitur tion that will last. Lift Rivet rated. \ Friendship and matrimony. We have seen some writers who labored hard to prove that love cannot long survive marriage, except in the form of an exalted friendship. Madame do Stael, a sentimental and intellectual woman, congratulates the pair happy in her "Corinne" whose first romantic love has settled into reliable friendship. There is a dangerous sophisity embodied in this theory. Sam Slick, whose wit and good sense we always respected, overthrows the fallacy of the doctrine in the following piece of logic: "The nature of matrimony is one thing, and the nature of friendship is another. A tall man likes a short wife; a great talker likes a silent woman, for both can't talk at once. A gay man likes a domestic 'gal.' for lie can leave, her at home to nuss the children and make pap, while he is enjoying himself to parties. A man that h.-iint nny music in him likes it in his spouse, and so on. It chimes beautiful, for tliey ain't in each ot her's wav. Now, friendship is the other way; you must like the same things to like each other and be friends. A similarity of tastes, studies, pursuits and recreations, (what they call congenial souls:) a toper tor a toper, a smoker for a smoker, a liorse-racer for a horseracer, a prize fighter for a prize-fighter, and so on. ' Matrimony likes contrasts;friendship seeks its own counterparts." Wretched is that home where friendship supplants the warm gushings oflove, and where esteem is the only hond that holds the household together.? Spiiit of the Age. -? ? Some odd genius gives the following excellent advice to those young men who "depend on father'* for their support, and take no interest whatever in business, but are regular drones in the hive subsisting on that which is earned by others: "Come, off with your coat, clinch the saw, the j plow handles, the axe , the pick-axe, the spade !?anything that will enable you to stir your j blood! Fly round aud tear your jacket rather I than be the passive recipient of the old gentleman's bounty! Sooner than play the dandy at daiVx expense hircyourselt'out to some potatoe patch, let yourselves to stop hog holes, or watch I ho bars; and when you think yourself entitled to a resting spell do it on your own hook. Get j up in the morning?turn round at least twice before breakfast?help the old gentleman?give liini now and then a generous lift in business? | learn how to take the lead, and not depend forj ever on being led: and you have no idea hostile discipline will benefit you. Do this and our word for it, you will seetn to breathe a new atmosphere, possess a new frame, tread a new earth, wake to a new destiny?and you may then begin to aspire to manhood. Take off, then, that ring from your lilly finger, break your cane, shave your upper lip, wipe your nose, hold up your head, and, by all means, never again eat the bread of idleness, nor depend on father!'' j Woksk and Wokke.?There is no doubt ! but that much of devotional feeling is created hy fervent, hearty, and even homely stvle of psalm-singing, hut \vc think the custom of nr! ranging hymns of worship to popular airs has j certainly .gone far enough. Rev. L. C. Lock j wood?and who he may be we do not know? ! we see. has issued a new song of praise?and issued it seriously too?with the title of Louuig Jesus, a Parody on Katy Darling. Now if this be not :t parody, and a moot revolting one, on all decency in psalm-writing, we know not what is to be so considered. Admitting that " the devil should not have ail the good tur.es," still are there not somo names and some things which should be invested with sufficient sanctity to save and preserve them from the blasphemous familiarity ol such association ? If there are, is not the name of our Savior most pre eminently worthy to be so considered ? The fust four lines of the hymn (?) are as follows : " Oh I they tell mo thou art gone, loving Jesus, That thy faeo I may never tnoro behold ! Do they toll me I'll prove false, loving-Jesus, Or rny love to thee shall o'er grow cold ?" Exchange Paper. ?, Ingenious Rascality.?A wine merchant [ in Paris recently received a note as follows: Sir,?For some time you have been robbed, I at retail; we have now resolved to rob you by wholesale. I now hereby notify you that tomorrow night, should you not adopt measures to prevent it, your cellar will be entirely drained. Sacre! cried the merchant, and he loaded his pistols, and at the appointed night he descended into the cellar, and seated himself between two wine casks. Everything in the cellar I cnf.i Kill nn fi?t iimtfiir Ymtrift in fhn morning, he found every room in his house rifled, and all of his plate, money and clothes purloined. The thieves had persuaded him to take care of his cellar while they should rob his house. You can hardly take up a paper nowa-days without finding in it the record of a death by suicide, Instances of self destruction in the larger cities are becoming fearfully frequent. In New York four cases in a week ; in Baltimore, 3! Wo read how at New Orleans a French lady of great beauty, and at Richmond a gentleman of respectability have committed self murder, within a few days past; and we hear of instances where young persons of both sexes have closed idle and dissolute Jives oy a recourse to means at wmcu Christianity shudders. Domestic troubles pecuniary difitress, disappointed love, seem to be the impelling causes to this fearful step. Yet, it argues gloomily for our morality and religion as a Christian nation, when this mania for self destruction scms to be so rife. * ? A Family Meeting.?The children of Noah Davenport, eight in number, all met on the 28th ult., at William Davenport's house in Spencer/*i i i _ ... i? \t ir ?. .i i town, uoiumoia county, n. i., in tnesame nouse where thoy were all born, after a Reparation of over fifty years.

The voice sweet as winds blowing through wreathed shells slumbers forever. And still the busy world knocks at your door, and will let you have no peace. It shouts in your ear; its chariots rumble by ; it mocks you as you sew the shroud; it meets you at the church, at the grave ; and its heavy footsteps tramp up and down in the empty rooms, from whence you have borne your dead.

I witnessed a spectacle in the Liverpool Zoological Gardens which I shall never forget. In a large, deep pit there wore three bears, two very large, the other quite small. I dropped a biscuit for the little one, -vlncli he begau to eat. The large bears being full of frolic, took away the broken pieces of tho biscuit several times with their paws, and returned them to him. Tho little one was testy and fierce, snapped and snarled, and bit at his jocose companions. This the big bears put up with for a while without resent incut. Rut the little one could not forget the insult; he went on quarreling and snapping.? lu a few moments, to my surprise and horror, the great bears began to growl, and being angry, set upon the poor little tiling, bit him completely through the bowels, and laid him dead on the spoi. I looked on and received instruction. I said to myself, if men will not put up with trifling annoyances, but resolve to fret and fume, and resent them, they must expect from parties as meddlesome as themselves, but with greater power, formidable injuries, and it may be ruin. Let a man once acquire a character for peevishness, we may conclude that in social life he will be avoided; and should he give himself airs before power and authority in public, he may then expect to be deposed. Sermons on Peevishness. Pkksence of Mind.?A !a>lv was one eve: i...? . "Ill?? Hi (IVI UUi'Ui'p iuvm uiuiii.f the only other inmate of the house, a brother, ; who, for a time, had been betraying a tendency to unsoundness of mind, entered with a carvingknife in his hand, and, shutting the door, came up to her and said, 4 Margaret an odd idea lias occurred to mo. I wish to paint the head of John the Baptist, and I think yours might make an excellent study fur it, So, if you please, I will cut off your head.' The lady looked at her brother's eye, and seeing in it no token of a jest, concluded that he meant to do as he said. There was an open window and a balcony by her side, with a street in front; but a moment satisfied her that safety did not lie that way.? So putting on a smiling countenance, she said with the greatest apparent cordiality. 4 That is a strange idea, George; but would it not be a pity to spoil this pretty new lace tippet I have got ? I'll just step to my room to put it oft', and be with you again in half a minute.' Without waiting to give him time to consider, she - .1 a ? J i . .. stepped ligliliy across me noor, aim passed oui. In another moment she was safe in her room, whence she easily gave alarm, and returned when the madman was secured. Maternal Discreetness.?Traveling a few days since from Niagara Falls to Rochester by railroad, the train being stopped at a station, I noticed a very dignified but anxious looking countenance entering the car; the person, a woman, after making a choice selection of a seat, appeared perfectly comfortably situated for the journey. Thought nothing more of the circumstance until my attention was attracted by a sudden, quick movement or. the part of the same female toward the door, screaming to the conductor, "Oh! dear can't you wait two or three minutes, till I run up to the hotel and cet my baby? I forgot all about it!" ? Boston Post. A Dead Shot. ?A physician who resides in the southern portiou of this City upon visiting a patient at the extreme north, was asked by the sick man, "if he did not find it very inconvenient to come such a distance." "Not at all, Sir," replied the son of Esculapius, "for having another patient in tho next j street" I can kill two birds Willi one stone. "Can you, Sir!" replied tlio invalid, "then you arc too good a shot for uie;" and immediatly dismissed him. Good Rule.?Banish all books at recitation except in reading. Ask two questions out of the book for every one in it. Be sure that every scholar can repeat and answer every question asked before dismissed from tho class. Call ou scholars promiscuously.

The North ano The South.?In another column we give a significant article from the Richmond Whig on the subject of the recent outrage to Mr. Wheeler and his servants at: Philadelphia. It is no longer sufficiently expressive of the j actual condition of things in this country to say there is a tendency to the formation o( two great sectional pnrtigs. It is already a movement?a decided, active movement. The North is being drilled into a plan of warfare against the institutions of the South. No effort is lost to inflict injury upon citizens of the South?no means unemployed to impress upon them the idea that we will not perform the obligations of the constitution :n reference to slaves. Mas sachusetts is in open rebellion; Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio, and, indeed, the whole North, aro rapidly moving to the same pointThat the end of all this, unless checked by timely action, will be the organization of the two great sections of the Union into hosiile parties? that it will drive the South to the defence of its property and the protection of its citizens?that it will sink the government into a relentless feud and a servile war it requires no prophet to foretell. When the constitution fails to secure the ends for which it was adopted not all the glorious memories of the past not all the material wealth and prosperity of the present, not all the promises of the future, can sustain it as a covenant of the union of the States. If there was no other reason than that which requires nearly half the parties to the compact to surrender rights which are guaranteed by i' 1 the mere demand of the other copartner would be sufficient to insure tho downfall the government. Not only the rights secured must be held sacred, but the opinions of those entitled to their enforcement ought also to be respected. It is folly to expect to reap tho fruits of union without complying with its essential conditions. Situated as the United States are with reference to slavery and the condition of public sentiment ! touching its tendencies and uses, it is impossible ! not to sec that an issue precipitated upou that question must end in the most fata! consequences to both sections. There is no government when it fails, by the deliberate action of its parts, to fulfil its just obligations. The substituti >u of 1 v *_ r A c .. _ I mere moral uismu'ciani* lor soieum covuuauis forfeited?the repeated assertions that a legal outrage will end in wealth and prosperity to the supposed injured party--will do little to preserve the government or to satisfy the sufferer. We j commend this subject to thoughtful men in the North.?H. Y. Herald The Chops in Europe.? Horace Greeley writes from Paris, with the date of July 5th: As I hear vague reports of indifferent harvest prospects in this or that quarter, let me say that, having travelled pretty extensively of late, 1 feel satisfied that the wheat crops of Europe for 1855 will be a lull average, while that of hay (already for the most part secured) will exceed tlie usual yield. 1 think I never saw potatoes more thrifty and vigorous than j those of France and Switzerland now appear wherever they are not stiffed by the insane i ! practice of close planting, which is too common. ; Nearly every variety of vegetables is also look! ing well. The weather is variable, but gene rally dry and cool?and I know not what could be better for the maturing grain. Ryo (now nearly ripe) looks well in Switzerland, but not so well in France; oats are late but generally of a good color; Indian corn is often yellow and slender; but neither this nor rye is extensively grown in the sections I have traversed. The great staples are grass, wheat and potatoes, and ail these in the main promise well. I am assured that the prospect is equally good throughout Germany. Serious Affray.?On Sunday night, about II o'clock, Mr. Michael Divine, a quiet and respectable citizen, was so badly beaten by two men named Dorsay, that he now lies in a very precarious position. It appears that Mr. Divine and Patrick Dorsay were disputing upon some point, at the Eagle Tavern, on Qnceustrect, when, as it is alleged, Timothy Dorsnv rami> un behind, and struck him on the ?J ?-- -r y - ? -head with a sling-shot, fracturing tho bkull.? Divine fell immediately after, and must have received most cruel treatment when down, as ho has several bruises 011 the body, and his right foot badly shattered. It is expected, however, that the ill treated man may survive, if mortification of his wounds docs not set in. Warrants were issued on yesterday, by Magistrate Schroder, for tho arrest of the implicated parties, but as yet they are at large. Telegraphic despatches, authorizing their arrest, were also sent to tho authorities of Savannah, j Augusta, and Columbia, as it is supposed they I have loft the city. We regret exceedingly that the lato Sheriff's election was the point at varianco between them, the Dorsays nnd Mr. ; Divine having taken opposite sides on that occasion.? Charleston Standard 315/ ult. Fashion?What She Does.?Fashion rulos the world, and u most tyrannical mistress she is, compelling people to submit to the most inconvenient things imaginable, for fashion's sake. She pinches our feet with tight shoes, or 1 chokes us with a tight neckerchief; or squeezes tho breath out of our body by tight lacing. She makes people set up at night when they ought to bo in bed, and keeps them in bed in the morning when they ought to bo up and doing. She makes it vulgar to wait on ourselves, and genteel to live idlo and useless. She make# people visit when thev would rather stay at home, eat when they are not hungry, and drink when they are not thirsty. She invades our pleasures and interrupts our business. She compels people to dress gaily, whether upon their property or that of others; whether agreeable to tho word of God, or the direction of pride. She ruins health and produces sickness, de- j strovs life and occasions death. Sho makes foolish parents, invalids of children. and servants of all. She is a tormentor of conscience, despoilcr of morality, and enemy to religion, and no one can he her companion and enjoy either. Ul/R f AVOBITE rOISO^.? TT? VXIXBCI; Ml?. following, remarks on " tlie favorite poJtwb. of America," from" a work written by the Uta A. J. Downing: ,. " In the signs of physical health, apu f6' alt * that constitutes the outward pspcitof fte mwi and women Of the United States, bur people *; compare most unfavorably with those tit the other side of the Atlantic. So fcrtnijjltflelj' is \ this the fact, that though we are inicotttfclblii of it nt home, the first thing that strike* an American returning from abroad, is the pale and sickly countenances of his friends and acquaintances?the men look so pale and the women so delicate. The national poison wbicj/ causes all this, 19 not tobacco, nor patent mtdi/ cines, nor coffee, it is nothing less than the 1i-' tiated air of close stoves, and the tmtentilatotf apartments which accompany them} in_th^ continual atmosphere of erase stores Breathed in our homes, in our rail cars, in our steamboitf t cabins, in our lecture rooms, concerts, mu private assemblies, all over the country.

Whether our "pale countrymen" will do any such thing, is doubtful. If fresh sir tfrertf composed of arsenic, a large portion bf otff people could not have more dread of introducing it into their sleeping apartments. They have an idea that cold air produces colds.? Nothing, however, could be more unfounded. CoMa are improperly named, for they are fever's and nothing else. Now, fevers, are produced," not by fresh air, but by tainted meat, night brawling, and injudicious ventilation. If fresh air had been to destructive, God would not have provided the means for such an enormous suddIv. Poisons arc limited.
