Hart of Lexington, whore daughter Mr. Clay married, and Mrs. l'nce was one of the most admired belles of the State. Col. Hart was a merchant, and a rich one for that early time, full the whole hearted hospitality which char acterized the pioneers of the Ves, and proud of the brilliant promise of his new son-in-law. The wedding, therefore, was a sumptuous afl'uir ; invitations were tent to every family of res ectabilily within the settled portions o' the Slate, and mansion of the bride' father was thronged with guests, from the gayest youth to the gravest age. The vi-itors varied in cos tume as much as in years. Honest tan barked dyed homespun was there blushing beside the Euio.iettn fribberies of laced coats, ruffles and small swords. The venerable couple I have named had not seen each other for a long period until their late meeting.

Usefulness of Diamonds. a a ; Many prrion luppoae that diamond are only used in jewelry for ring and ot'ier article of personal adornment, and that they are really of no essential value whatever in the practical arts. Tliii it a mistaken notion ; tliey are used for a great number of purpose in the art. Thus lor cutting the j;lss ol our window Into proper tiie, no other substance can equal it, and it is exclusively used for this purpose. A natural edge, or point, as It ii oiled, it used for this work, and thou sands of such are atnually required in our factori. Diamond points are also era- ployed for engraving on cornelians, ame- thysta and other brilliants, and for the nne eutiing on cameos and seals. Being very hard, the dtnmond is also used. In chronometers for the slops of pivots ; and as it poees highly re frnctive, wiih interior dispersive power. and little longitudinal aberration, it has been successfully employed for the small deep lenses of single microscopes. Tut mngmiying power of the diamond in pro portion to that of plate glass, ground to similar form at 8 10 3. For drawing minute lines on hard steel and glass, to make micrometers, there is no substitute for the diamond point. The rough diamond is called "bort," and the points used for glass culling are fragments of the boris. Great care and skill are necessary in selecting the cutting points, because the diamond that cut the glass most successfully has the culling edges of the crystal placed exactly at right angles lo ench other, and passing through a point or intersection made by the crossing of the edges. A polished diamond, however perlect may be its edges, when pressed upon the surface of tbe glass, splinters it wnh tbe following pressure ; but with the natural diamond tho most nccurnte lines are produced on glass, and their surfaces me to highly bnmished that, if ruled close tcethcr. they decompose light and afford the most beautiful priKinntio appearance; a'.l the colors of the rainbow flash from them as from the silvery inleiior of a pearl oyster shell. Diamonds are also employed for drill points to perforate rubies, and bore hole in draw plates for 6oe wire, and also for drilling in hard steel. Some inquiries have been made of us recently in regard to using them for dressing, millstones, as a substitute for steel picks. We appie liend that tliey are altogether too ex pensive to be used for this purpose at present ; but if some of our inventors would make the discovery of manufacturing diamonds as cheaply as we make charcoal, which is of the same com position, we might be able to recommend them to our millers. The coke obtained from tbe interior of gas retorts in many eases is found so hard that it will cut glass nut as its point endures but a short period, it cannot be made available as a subsli tute fur such purposes. What a Queen Costs. in to a bu his the The following from tbe Philadelphia frttt will give our readers an idea of the expense lo tbe BiiuhIi nation of support ing the Court of England. It may new to many of our readers.and will show them what royalty costs. Iu tho last year tbe outlay by the British people for Koy al Establishments amounted to about $9.732,9f,5. The leading items are follows: Queen Victoria's Civil List, 925,000 ; including her Privy Perse. 8300,000; salaries of Houshold.8065.OOO; Household expenses, 855.000; Royal Bounty, 866,000; Pensions, 96,000; Mis cellaneous, 840,200; Prince Albert's an nuity, 8150,000; Dutchess of Kent, 8150,000; Dutchess of Cambridge, 845,- 0110 ; Duchess of Mecklenberg-Streliiz, 815,000; King of the Belgiaos,$260.000; Princess Frederick of Prussia, 837,890; servants of deceased Royalty, 814,624. All of these roonevs are paid out of Consolidated Fund for public revenue) England and do not represent the whole amount received by the Royal Family. I hus, frince Albert has numerous of fices, civil and military, which bring him In an additional income of 81 50,000. The Duke of Cambridge, beside having pert of at. James' ralace, free of rent, taxes and repairs, has some 850,000 per annum extra, as Commander-in-Chief and Colonel of a cavalry regiment. Not only is tho Queen's aunt, the Dutchess of Cambridge, handsomely pensioned, well as her son and Iwo daughters, bui even ber son-in-Uw, a very poor German prince, receipts 83,890 a year from Great Britain. The Queen's mother and Queen's uncle (Leopold of Belgium) have 8400.000 a rear between them. May. much is money an object with Royalty that the Princess Royal of England, mar ried to the Kin? of l'rmiia's nephew, was meanly permitted by the Prussmn Royal family to saddle the British nation with life pension lo hero! 637. atu a year.wmen John Bull will probably have lo pay du ring the next half century. his his on us that us we for Ezpzctino a LxTTsa. We do think that life has a suspense more sick ening than that of expecting a letter which docs not come. The hour which brings the post is tbe one that is anticipated, only one from which we reckon.

How we hope and lieve each day will bo our last of anxious wailing I The post comes in and there no letter for us I How bitter is the dis appointment I and on every repetition grows more acute.

We dread, we know not what, every lengthened day the misery grows more unsupportable. Every day anxietv takes a darker shadow. To know even the very worst of all wa have fore lodcd, appears a relief, What Divers Meet with Under Water. When the vessul ba settled down In a sandy bottom, it is preferred for many month from breaking up; and It position may be much the lame as it would bo when floating In calm water, if It be not tilted over bv any under current drifts. The light, of coursn, depends a good deal upon tho depth, and upnn the nature of the bot tom ; but where there is no chalk to give a milky thickness to the water, the diver pur sue his work In a kind of gloomy twilight. Bv tbo aid of this ba can see and fcol his war round the ship t bat wnon ne asennus lo the deck, and winds down to the princi pal cabins, ho finds evervthlng pitch dark and ha nothing to guide mm ous nia nanus. luis is tne most uniicim aim j iuo freauent labor ho has to encounter ; tho danger bolng that in a largo vessel, whore the cabin stairs are deep and the cabins are long and broad, he may get bis air tuba twisted round some unfamiliar projection, and se snucrso off his supply of lite from above. In positions such as thisJio require all his norve and self-possession, all hi power of fooling his way back in the exact road that ho came. He may have got the precious easkot, to which he bas beer, di rected In his arms t but what of that, if he die before hn can find the stairs ? The cold helpless mossos that bump against his hel met as they float along tho low roof over hi hoad.are tho decntnposod corpses of those who woro huddlod togotbor iu tbe cabin when the shin went down. A fow of tbese may be on the floor under his foot, but only when pinned down by an overturned table or a fallen chest. Their tendency is upward ever upward and the remorseless sea washes away thediiad infant from its dnad mother's arms, the dead wife from the dead husband's embrace. If tho reck be in the Cbannel.the small crabs aro already beginning to fatten nn their prey. Tho diver discntanglos himself from this silent erowd, and ascends tho wolcomo stairs lo tho deck. The treasure ho ha rescued is hauled up into tho attendant's driving boat ; and hn turns again to renew his work. Ho seldom meots with an accidont undor the wator never perhaps, with death, and tho chiof risk ho runs is from getting some heart pieco of ship lumber overturned en bis long train or air pipe, uvon lit inis case he fouls tho sudden check and want nf gropos his wNy buck to the obstruction, removes It. signals to his companions to raised, and roaches tho boat exhausted and alarmed, but not so much so as to give his place in the trade. His earnings mostly taku tho form of abat es in what hn recovers. If fortunato his gains may bo large; if un fortunate they may ho small ; but no man can grudgo him the highest prise it Is possi bio lor him to win.

Nature and Man. ; be as of as a ¬ able essay, at 'the Musio Hall in Boston, last Sunday morning, upon the relaied ness of man to nature, and the insensi bility of mankind to the glorious heritage they posses. In this world, the greatest wonder, to every thoughtful person that he is here. It bas been said that were it not for the phenomenon of sleep, we should all become atheists, as by temporary suspension of our own will are reminded of the existence oi a su Dreme will.

Man leans downward upon every animal, even lo the lowest forms of creation, while each species of animal life gravitates upward lo man. So far as bumanity is concerned, tbe earth itself is a tomb, in which pet rified races, converted into statutes stone, are their own monument. It is impossible lo conceive the littleness of man as compared with Inbmte space, yet how splendid is the furniture of mind. By astronomy worlds and systems are weighed, but whet a puny thing lhe astronomer. Men are endowed with the diving bell of memory, to explore farthest recesses of knowledge ; with balloon of fancy, to isoar iulo the em pyrean : but most men s memory con sists of a record of trifling iocidents, such a day l paid a note, or the cow calved, or I cut my finger, and the fancy ropes amid tbe most groveliug objects, life becomes a mere pleasure hunt, men are shop-worn, and all existence is re solved into a struggle to pot something between the upper and lower mandibles. . . .. .i Ana tins is a creation wnere every tniog tuned to the nicest harmony, lhe race has not vet taken possession of lis own.

Patrick looks forward to nothing beyond Saturday niht and black pipe at home ! Life has no bright upward revolutions, no bitter rending away of the soul's visions, for him ! How different is the light tripping step the young girl, that makes musio on the worn and roughened paving-stones Iho quick, nervous pace of the mother, hurrying home to her little ones weary tread of those who walk within shadow of death.
