There ia a feeling of melimolioly, any a traveler, iu looking tlie last look on such a place, seobible that one will never tee it more. The rippling slreftm seemed lo mock me as I pushed over il : "Man may cotuo uud meti may go, But I flow ou forever." And then, in the ghostly atillnesa of the night, 1 entered the vast Trililhou. The Totnple oi Jupiter, under the decep tive lightning ol the moon,, looked per fect. It seemed aa if just finished by tho architect, and to-morrow Antonius Pen tifex Maximus might hiuist-li be coming to consecrate il to mighty Jove. The religion of Ihe Roman has lit en celebra ted there. Sacrifices to the gods of Linal beo were offered there for nenr four hun dred years after Ihe Christian era. Then another religion occupied its IihIIs and shrines. Tiie Christian possessed it. Tho Cross was erected where the beard less statue of Jupiter had stood. Tbo Bishop of Ileliopolis But in the Council of Atitioch. - Three centuries lienrd Ihe hymns of the Church chanted iu its temples; and the lay ptocetsion of the priests swept through its hi i igon and quadrangle. Then war was in tbe land. I he t xterminatini; con quests of the Crescent, with a li.'.e of blood, flowed from the ocean board to the deaerts of D.iinascm, and qucuched the lamps that had burned everlastingly befoie the altars of the City of the Sun. Dark ntes covered it for throe bundled years, and silence blotted out the name of Heliopolis from history. When it ouce more emerges, its classic title hns pcrUhed in the flood of devastation. Men called it Baalbcc, and the Arabian historian and Benjamin of Toledo (A. D. 1 ICS) noted it, and tells us of its "stones of enor mous size," and how earthquakes have shaken ihe laud of Syria, thrown down its structures, and crushed lo death its people. Salndin next occupied the stage of time. King Baldwin and Count Raymond car ried tire and sword thronub the land. cried havoo and let slip the doga of war under its battlements ; for, no longer the home of a religion, it had been converted into a fortress, and the historian said, it "is a castle built with very large stones." And then another tragio actor Iretted bis little day before the world. He bade its citizens surrender, and Tamerlane, flush ed with victory, marched onward to Da mascus. Another century and a half rolled over, and we hear no more of it until the modern spirit of travel first ex bibiled itself, and Ihe long catalogue of names commenced (with the frenchman Belar, 1543 ; the English Maundrell, 1697) which links il at last with the peo ple of our own times. Tho heathen, the Christian, Saracen, the Turk, all have been its lords and mis ters. What a train of ghostly forms my fancy pictured, with slow aud stately march, going past me, sweeping over the -floor and through the columned aisles where once in lifo they trod 1 Pompey, ihe veterans of Augustus' legions ; the Emperors of Rome Antonius, the bloody Caracalia, the Christian Theodosius ; the actor the poor actor Gelasinus fearninz the bard-bought food of the sock and buskin, and yet with the religion of Christ in His neart, going with him on the stsge, ami Hallowing his martyr death : the im petuous crusader ; the conquering and courtly Saladin ; the fiery Tamerlane all, all seemed to pass before me, their wan bands pointing to the ruins tbey bad left : and the moon, shininir through the broken niches, Ihe dismantled architraves and pillars of Trililhou, reft of ull tbe sculptor's clothing, exposed them with fu neral light before me in giant forms, the cenuaea corpse or imperial pride, the skeletons of earthly pageantry and power, mouldering away m the fallow of centu ries. B Polite Iq the world, he who speaks sweetly and with affability, will have many friends, but be whose words are bitter, will bave few or none. This we may learn from the sun and moon. 1 be sun by reason of Its dazzling light, drives away every siar ana planet from the boavens, while it is above the horizon, and (s thus obliged to run its course soli tary and unattended ; but tbe moon shed ding only soft and tender light, moves oo in the midst of stars and constellations, escorted by a numerous company. How a Spire Fell. Fow people who liao not visited Enzland can understand tho elFuction with which tho people of minor cathedral town view tho ecclusiastical edifice which Is the principal ornament ot lliolr place. I ho cathedral tnwos aro usually Very quiet, clean ralhur sluopy places, to tell the truth. Thoro is a bialinp and a number nl clurgytnun, and little choir boy., and, excepting on tnnrkot duvs, tbey nre tho must prouilnont individ uals in tho pluco. Thoro is a daily servico in iho cathedral. To ho suro, nobody hut tho clergy and tho choir boys and a few curious strangots attend, but tbon it is very gratifing to the townsfolk to knew thut ovoryihing is going on right. Tneir love lor tho cathedra! is luiont in prosperous times, but onoo lot the old edifioo got into trouble, and tlioy will mukn lively demon strations of thoir ostcetn. for itistnnco, at York, a few years ago, a tnnciae Set firo to tho cathndra!, and the richly carved wood work of i ho .lull, was destroyed, Tho townsfolk nl onco hold a mooting, ami sub scribed enough to rcplucu tho cherished or iiaiiiunt. In this cnnnlrv, Burlington. Now Jortoy, with its a. .Mary s church and bishop s rosi daSsVo, com os the uourott to a cnthedrul town : and wo are true In say that nil tho B'.irliiigloniiitiS would fi'rl deeply griuvod should tho handsome spiro of St. Murv's some day tumble to tho ground. Such a inifliRM has, however, recently oo currod lo tj:u KngliKh town of Chichester. Iio cathedral ihero, tliouuh by no moans among the finest of Knglund, wus old and interesting. It was begun some eight hun dred years auo. Tho totter was built about tliu year 1200. una tho spin', p'ucid In the cuntrouf tho building, risinu lo a height of two hundred and sovmii. four foot, and surpassed in nliiliiilu by only two other spiles in tho kiugduui, was added about thn year HOO. Now a spire preciod nearly a century beforo Columbus fol font on American soil is ontiilml to sinnn votinriiliiin, and ihoniforo ils fall is worth chronicline for fall it did. and thut on the 20ih of February lust. it appears that the tower had lor anmo limo shown symptoms of danger, and dm ing recent reparations made in tho interior ar rangements of t Iio cathedral, it was dieenr- ered that this danger was much morn so- nous than at first supposed. On tho I4ih ult., cracks and ciovices appealed in the piers, tinmen ately Rltor the Sunday servi ces on tho 17th. bndies of workmen took possession of Ihe church, and by day and night worked to strengthen tho ton or. But tho iminonso weight of tho spiro was ton great, A tonlne storm occurred on the night of Wednesday, tho 20th. which shook the tower, but tho elFoi-ts of sixty workmen appeared still to oiler snmn possibility of ultimate success, when, at .ij in thn morn ing, they left tho building. At daylight thoy returned to thn task, but now tbo spire tottorod. Al 1 i I'. M., tho workmen wero ull ordered out of thn cathedral, and a riuar- tor ot an hour Inter the tower and spiro loll to the door with but little noise, forming a mats of near C000 tuns of ruin in the cen tre of the church, and carrying with it about twenty feet in longlh of tho nave, und as much of the transept and choir. ''The spiro at Us full," says an oyo-wliness. "at first Inclinod slightly to the south-west, and thou sank gently into the centro of tho building. The ujipnarauoo of tho full was thut of a largo ship quietly but rapidly foundering at sea." Fortunately no one was Injured by this catastrophe, but the people of Chichester aro inc. insoluble oror thoir architectural loss. Keening I'utl. The Society of Woman. No society is more profitable than that of a refined and sensible woman. God enshrined peculiar goodness in the form of woman, that her beauty might win, her gentle voice invite, and the desire of her favor persuade men s s'.erner souls to leave the path of sinful strife for the ways of pleasantness and peace. But when woman falls from this blessed eminence, and sinks the guardian and cherishcr ol pure and rational enjoyments in ihe vain coquette and fluttered idolator of fashion, she is unworthy of an honorable man's love or a sensible man's admiration, but is then, at least, but "A pretty plaything Dear deceit." We honor the chivalrous deference which is paid in our land lo womao. It proves that our men know how lo reaped virtue and pure affection, and that our women are wormy ol such respect, xet women should be something more than mere woman to win us to their society. To be our companions, Ihey should be btted to be our menus ; lo rule our hearts, they should be deserving the approbation of our minds. There are many such, and that there are no more is rather the fault of our own sex than their own ; and de spile all the unmanly scandal that has been thrown upon tbem in prose and verse, they would rather share in the ra tional conversation ol men of sense than listen to the m'lly compliments of fools and a man disbouors them as well as dis graces himself when he seeks their circle lor idle pastime, and not for the improve ment of bis mind and the' elevation of his heart. Will the Pope Rejiovb the Papal Seat to Jehi'Salku ? A correspondent of the Liverpool Mercury, writing from Rome, status that French otucors have lattorly been very busy In obtaining information re specting Jerusalem and the stuto of things in that quarter. Ho adds that thoy had boon taking inuasuroinonts in sevoral Ideali ties, particularly tho ground that Iio about the Moinuo of Ouiar. ou Mount Moriah. From Jersulom they bad gone on to Hebron, Gaza and ottior points, tor tbe liko purposo. Il was also currently reported that a body of Fronch troops was shortly to come to Jerusalem, while another would bo stationed at Jaffa, and a third on Mouut Gunnel. At Boyrout, be says, the French ofBoers openly afiirmod that their govornment had no in tention of withdrawing the force sent out, but wore about to employ tbem shortly on a new and very differont errand to tbat for which tbey ostensibly came. Tbe Fronch were also actively employed lo making a road from tbe Holy City lo Damascus, along wbieb they are erectingl bouses at certain Intervals. It is said tbat such scheme as this intelligence shows to he in tbe course of development, points to the realizing of Pio Nono's favorite plan of romoviug tbe seal of the Papacy to Jerusalem, A Satirical Sketch. The Atlantic Monthly, for January, has a humerous and satirical article on Wash ington City, which closes in this wise : "The list of unique prodigies of Wash ington is without limit. But marvels heaped together eease to be marvelous, and of all places in the world, a museum ia tho most tiresome. So. nmonrr the whirl and roar of Winter life in Washing ton, when one has no lime to read, write or think, and scarcely lime to cat, drink and sleep, when ihe days fly like hours, and ihe brain reels under the excitement of ihe protracted debauch, life becomes an intolerable bore. Yet Iho place hns an intense fncination for those who suffer most accutely from the tedium vital, lo which every one is more or leas a prey ; ana men ana women who have lived In Washington are seldom eonlented else where. The moths return lo the flaming candle until ihev are consumed. In conclusion, it must bo admitted thai Washington N the elvseum of oddities. the limbo of absurdities, an embroglio of luutcrous anonitlic. i'lanned on a sea e of surpassing grandeur, its architectural execution is almost contemptible. Blessed with the name of the purest rr.cn. it has the reputation of SoJom. The seal of ihe law making power, il is the seat of vio lence and disorder which disturb the pence and harmony of the whole republic the chosen lesort for duelling, clan desiiue marriages, and the most stupen dous ihefis. Il is a city without commerce, and with out manufacture ; or, rather, its com merce is illicit, and its manufactures are newspaper correspondents, who weave tissues of Gction out of ihe warp of rumor and the web of prevarication. The site of the United Slates Treasury, il is the home of everything but xlUueuce. Its public buildings are splendid, its private dwel lings generally squnllid. The houses are low, the rents'high ; the streets are broad, the crossings nniroty ; the hacks are black, the horses white; the squares are triangles, except that of the capiiol, which is oval ; and the water h so soft Ihat i'. is hard to drink it, even with tho admixture of alcohol. It has a monument that will never be Goished,a capiiol which is to have a dome, a scientific institute wlrch does nothing but report the rise and fall of the ther momeler, and Iwo pieces of equestrian statuary which it would be a waste of lima to criticise. Il boasts of a streamlet dig nified by ihe nnme of the river Tiber, and this streamlet is of the size and much the appearance of a vein in a dirty man'1 arm. It Una a canal, but it is a mud-puddle du ring one half of the day, and an empty ditch during the other. In spite of the labors of lite Smith sonian Institute, it hns no particular weather. It has the climate of nil parts of the babitablo globe, Il rains, hails, freezes and blows, all in the space of iwcnty four hours. After a fortnight of steady rain, the sun shines out, and in half an hour the streets are filled with clouds of dust. Property in Washington is exceedingly aensalive, the people alarmingly callous. The men are fine looking, the women homely. The latter have plain faces, but magnificent busls and graceful figures. The former have an imposing presence and an empty pocket, a great name and a small conscience. Notwithstanding all these impediments and disadvantages, VV ashingion is progressing rapidly. Ii is fast becoming a large city, but must always remain a deserted village in the bummer, lis destiny is that of the Union It will be the greatest capitol the world ever saw, or it will be a 'parched place in the wilderness, a sal; land and not inhab ited,' and every one that passcth thereby l. .n L. , , ... ... Biiau ue asionisnea onu wag uis ueau. ; Tub New born 4nd the Dead Lav- ater in bis "Physiognomy," makes the following curious remarks : "I have hud occasion to observe some infants immedi ately on their birth, and bave found an astonishing resemblance between their profile and lhat of their father. A few days after, the resemblance almost entirely disappeared : the natural influence of the air and food, aud probably the change of posture, had so altered the design of the face, that you could have believed it a different individual. I afterward saw two of these children die, the one at six weeks and the other at four years of age and about twelve hours afler their death, they completely recovered the profile which had struck me so much at their birth ; only tbe profile of Ihe dead child was, as might be expected, more strongly marked and more terse than lhat of the living. The third day the resemblance began to disappear. 1 knew a man of fifty years, and another of seventy, bolb of whom, when alive, appeared to have no manner of resemblance to their children, and whose physiognomies belonged, if I may so express myself, to a totally different class. Two days after their death the profile of one became perfectly conformed to that of his eldest son, and the image of the other might he traced in the third of his sons. The likeness was quite as dis tinctly marked as that of the children, who, immediately afler their death, brought to my recollection the physiogno mies which they bad at their birlh. Broouino on One Tnouoirr. If you thiuk long and deeply upon any subject, it igrows in apparent uiuguitudo and woight; if you think ol it too long, it may grow big enough to exclude tbo thought of all things besidos. If it be an existing and prevalent evil you are thinking of, you may come to fanoy tbat if tbat ono thing wero done away, it would be well with the human race all evil would go with it. lean conceive ibe prooesa by which, without mania, without anything worse than tbe workable unsound ness of the practically sound mind, one might come to think, as tbe man who wrote against stopping thought. For myself, I fool the force ot this law so doepl'y, tbat there are cor lain evils of which I am afraid to think much, for fear I should eome to be able lo think of nothing else and nothing more- Frazcr '$ Ma gaunt.
