The hnhe, whom they named Miriam, throve wonderfully.

For before Jack went his next oytige which waslto be his last he said pretty Susy also went over the seas to be he wile ol a missionary. And from that last voyage Jack never returned. VIII. MARIAM. , VI. A TREASl'KK FOUND. "What is it, mate?" asked the stout, burly captain of the famous "Manches ter Sisters," as the former kept scruti nizing some object afar oil" through the old gray ship's spy-glass "Indeed, sir, it does seem like a small boat, without a soul in her, but a right nice little tiling, and I warrant you worth saving." It was a clean, jaunty-looking schoon er,, quite new, inula very picturesque thiuz on the deep, dark blue ot the ocean the vessel commanded by Captain Counters, and he had been heard to boast, often, that he would not exchange the "Manchester Sisters," no, not for any big craft that sailed the salt pond. Kveniug was waning when the tidy nintet deefied, ior vtoought" he Ulitl, "su'thin floating," as he expressed him self, and sure enough before fifteen min utes had elapsed it shaped itself out of tlie mist, rocking and rolling, drifting at tlie mercy of the winds ; and occasionally as it came near, a faint moan could be heard. i "Them's su'thin alive in tkat'here. said the niatel and hardly liiul lie spoken than the schooner's cockle-shell was let down, and men stationed to pull in i the craft. "A baby ! by all that's gracious, and alive, too," shouted one of the men "uoor thiuir! she's a'most cried herself to deHthi iilds-ins by the eyes." r Slowly and carefully it. was gathered up and soon laid in theniate'sanns, iwho held it as it.it was a piece ol pasteitoaru "Dang it, I can't help it, sir," ex claimed a weather-teaten tar, dashing tlie tears from his eyes; why lie should have so said was incomprehensible, for no one had spoken to r.r oliserveil mm until he added, "1 lang it, it's just i like her." "Just like who?" asked the captain who had not oiiile recovered from his blank amazement on receiving tliii at' miisitiou to his crew, "The last one, sir; had seven, and all of 'em dead seven tine girls and xlt looks like the last 'one." ' ' A queer thought came into the cav- taiu s head; he was not very loud ot children. "Look here.

I can rind many a one on the street, though, that scorned to be spoke to by me years ago ha, ha, slop-work i the general leveller slop-work makes brisk business for the city-fathers, its the grand sewer ol the nineteenth century it empties all the trash down," saving which with a grin, he resumed his chalk and marked a skeleton figure on the stout blue cloth before him, destined to take in some unsuspicious son of Xep- tuiie, perciiance to ne wet with Salter brine than that of the wide, cheerless ocean, Grasping her little Mariam tlrhtlv by the hand, the sailor's widow walked shyly but hurriedly through the great city. First she called at a baker's and bought two large loaves: and thoush the child asked it not, a penny's worth of sweet cuke ; and then turning Into a dis mally uarrow and dirty street, stopped before one of its old houses, and timidly moved uirougii a group or Irish men Into the entry, up, up, up four long nights of creaking stairs, into a back chamlier neat and clean, but scantily tiirnished. There she proceeded to take olVMariam's tidy little bonnet of black, her dress of threadbare silk, her little Kil ished gaiters, and substituted a plain I cotton apron and worn shoes. Then she went through tlie same form with herself, talking and smiling to the little Mariam in an absent kind of way, while every few moments she wiped the tears from her eyes. Whatever the old room was, the child made it seem beautiful. She was a love ly creatue with her milk-white forehead and great soft hi tin eyes, filled to the brim with love. Her hair hung like skeins of gold just rippling with a slight curl over the fair, rosy cheeks and dim pled shoulders, fcach time, the widow looked at her a new light came over her care-worn face, though in a moment tlie great burden of her unspoken sorrow resumed its old resting-place. The chihl prattled about, a little while, after the scanty tea had liecn served, while the widow, taking from the closet a heavy bundle, unrolled it and sorted out the several parts of a linen shirt; and sun at, everything she did the. tears fell lUDViiy. After the child laid its head upon pillow, dreaming happy dreams, tint poor w oman threw by her work and sobbed aloud, "It's almost gone," she said, in, broken accents, "the come of her.- &he s such a pretty crea ture," she murmured, looking at the sleeping cherub, "that somebody will be kind to her for her beauty's sake but how will it be when she has grown to womanhood?" "It may not be so bad with me," she added, after a long pause, pressing her hand to her heart, "but this burning fe ver this beating pulse this hollow cough these deatldy feelings at night when I spring froni roy sleep with tlie damp, cold sweat on my forehead oh, Jod ! in mercy hear my prayer! If I am to die. Father in heaven, in mercy pro vide a home for my innocent darling be fore I go." Again she resumed. "How cruel it was in lxini to taunt me so! cruel, cruel to give us toilsome work of pain and labor ; to make us sit from day's dawn till the night, and give us scarcely enough to buy bread for our children ; and then insult us because tlie hand that protected us once, lies in the cold grave, and we have none, to care for us." God help you all, widows, in great and hardened cities! If you are stran gers in a strange land, few, indeed, will come to your hearth where . the brands of human love are turned; into grey white ashes, and hope cowers like a starved mendicant counting the rents in his tattered garments. Many a time must the spirit sink like lead, cold, heavy and palpable; the chill of the heart's fever, seldom succeeded by a glow, alas! freezes up even love itself. Through a thousand channels the bitterness of the unfeeling world will flow in, and quench, if it can , even the desire of hones ty ; so that life must be hereafter but a living death,and death a hideous tormen tor that points only to unending gloom.' But however much the glitter , ot gold may shut out eternity to the cold, unfeel ing eye of wealth, there is a time of reck oning to all meii look to it ye who traf fic in human souls ! IX. CAKE AX'D LABOR. Day after day the widow toiled, but her strength failed her rapidly. She was soon obliged to take in tlie coarsest work of flannel and cotton texture ; and no longer able to carry them home her self, a poor neighbor, a rough but kindly-hearted girl, volunteered to go for her, and also to do any little favor in the way of errands, takiiig care of Miriam, or whatever the sickly woman could not liersell attend to. For I'm sure she's a nice, decent body," she exclaimed to her mother, on coming one day from Mrs. Trevor's lit tle room, "she's a nice, decent woman, id a clever one too, I know. It makes my heart ache, it does, to see her look so healthy like her cheeks redder than mine redder even than Miss Mitten's, the millincr's,whopnts paint on and no mis take and yet she can't hardly ever alk across the floor. If she only had husband to earn what little pa does, and even , we altogether can but just make out, and me braiding straw and on making duck trousers," she added. u a parenthesis, "though to be sure we might more than make the pot boil if pa id ut drink but poor soul, there she sits, meek and quiet as a lamb, and nev er complains, and I know blessed well she must be hungry often enough, be- nnse when I carried in that soup yes terday her eyes sparkled up my ! as if she hadn t had anything to eat lor a month." 1 Seeing the man come by with huckle- lierries, tlie good girl snatched tip a six pence she had been saving in the corner of her drawer tor a week, toward Duv- ng a comb, and laid it out in berries for the sailor's widow and her little charge. After delicately presenting them, she no ticed that Mariam had been crying bit terly; that her eves were red. 'and her little bosom heaved with hardly repressed sobs. "Poor tiling," said the widow, glane- ng up from her work with blazing cheeks, and eyes that almost burnt one to look at, "poor tlung, she lias been beg ging so hard to go out, and I daren't let her without me, tor you know what tne children are in this neighborhood, it sickens me to hear their oaths, and I would rather die than expose her to such dreadtul things." "What'll she do after ?" began the girl, but suddenly she bethought herself ot her bluntness, ana lelt her speech un finished. "After I am gone vou would say,' answered the widow, looking up calmly, "somehow I don t seem to tear lor her then. It appears to me as if God would stretch forth his arm," she added, with solemn emphasis, "and take her under His protection, ' It looks as clear as sun light," she went on, talking to herseit, "for all her great beauty, her utter help lessness, and her being a girl, I don't seem to have the least fear. Ever since that night I prayed to God I have been at rest. What will happen, or how it will happen 1 don't know, and 1 scarcely think ot it. And when the time comei though it will lie hard to leave her yet : Jesus ran make a dying bed , ' Feel soil as downy pillows are." ' up to anxious care, and foreboded every accident that ever has happened to chit- Ireu m the crowded streets from time immemorial. Flushed and hasrgard bv turns, she alternately looked from her narrow casement into the courtway, and moved with ill-boding alacrity to one as weak as, she, down the many stairs into the passage, an I gazed up the street for her child. "Something must have happened," she cried, bursting iuto tears, as she sought the room where rsallv s mother lived oh! what shall I do?" "You need'nt fret if my darter's got her in charge," said the old lady iu a tremulous voice, "she's the carefullest creeter about such things you ever see. Wiy, only think! two dozen clear starched to-day, and not a wrinkle or a scratch on one ; she's an oncommon gal, Sally is and bless my soul, turn your face right round, for that's she, sure as we had mush and milk this mornin' for breakfast." Yes, it was "she," and Mariam with her, looking so radiantly happy, with a little paper bag twisted atthetopm each hand, her cheeks dotted with dimples, and the eager, good news almost burst ing from her widely dilated eyes, while Sally, with a look of much importance, stood by with mouth wide open, and a vastly pleased face. "Why have you been so long, my darling?" exclaimed the widow, throw ing her thin, neshless arms about the body of the beautiful child, and folding her to her bosom. To the nice lady, mamma ; and she give me this and this for you and she will come here, too, to see you, mamma. Look taste." Mrs. Trevor . turned to Sally, and the good girl related quite a little adventure. She had been to the shop, she said, got the money and some more work, and was just coming away, when Murium, attracted by a liand organ and a monkey dancing on the pavement, pressed her to stand and hear the music ever so little a minute. A rich-looking and handsome lady sat at one of tlie grand windows, who, as soon as she caught sight of the child, stared at her quite earnestly, and in a little after sent a tine-looking serving man sue sup posed he was a serving man, though he was dressed quite genteelly to as ner if she wouldn't bring the child iu just a minute for the lady to see. "Well," continued Sally, "I thought it wouldn't be no harm, so in we posted, pet and I, into one of the splendidest looking places you ever did sees and it wasn't only the entry too but there was Aggers there and pictures, and red and yeller glass, and a shandeler, and a car pet that was too good to tread on, and gold things ou the stairs, and gold things on the walls, and I declare if the paper wasn't all gold too. But they carried us fnrder in and there, my goodness crea tion! I -couldn't tell you what wasn't there ; it looked grander than a jeweler's shop, and I didn't hardly darst to set down on such fine things as them sopys, and 1 didn't hardly darst to look, nor to sjieak, nor to breathe. Then the lady she took Mariam and began to talk to her, and undone her bonnet so the hair all come down ; then she looked kind o' sad enough, and took out a little gold locket with a race in it, and kept saying, now very like!' I thought she never would have done kissing and talking to her and iet, she took it all jest as natural as natural as if 'twas her right, and so who cares? What, she atraid? no, no; sue jest, looked round at the fine things as she does on the old walls here at home; and she sat on the lady's knee and played with her handsome curls, and talked away till I tip and said, I was sorry, but wan'tshe afraid her ma might be uneasy, and she sick, vou know." tier ma who is Her mother r" sue asked. So I made bold to put in a word about you, ma'am ; how that vou was sick, and and and "And I suppose you told her how very poor 1 was?" added the widow, sadly "but then what did she say? ' "Why not in so many words exactly I didn't tell her that, but she said she must come round to-morrow and see you; that she. was very fond of children, and Mari am particular put her in mind of omt- itouy and her tace had such 'a dreadtul, sorrowful kind of look, that I somehow couldn't bear to sec it. So she'll lie here to-morrow, and here's the work two pockets more to put in, and not another cent for the trouble. I do think them bare-faced men ought to be screwed up to a crust and cold water ; there. I do, "Rul- iiava, min.l T chill iil- tl,w,uvli , u ii. .... . kS .'vg. work sooner to-morrow, and 1,11 put them extra pockets in they shan't git it out ot you "Thank you, Sally, you are very kind," murmured the widow, faintly, taking Mariam, s baud and leading her to their room, "it will be but a little while longer, and then I shall need no help," she add- ed.in an undertone, and indeed her trem bling limbs and ashy paleness, her hur ried, paint ul breathing betokened the near termination of all her earthly sorrows. (TO BE COXTIXUED.) of her bonny face, for she was very fair.' I cau by no means describe the pathos of the old nun s tones as ne saiu tnu. v nen I began to think she was in trouble, and 'kept in,' I hid myself till the place, was clear of ither folk, and then I creept i t round and peeped in at the window o a side-room where scholars iu disgrace were put sometimes. Poor Margaret was indeed there, sitting upon a box, very forlorn, and crying bitterly. She bright ened up at seeing my face in the window pane, and smiled when I told her I had been waiting for her. Then I declared I would be revenged on our hard master, and went at once to the school-room to carry out iny plan; this was easy, for there was no one there. "Just over the master's desk was a shelf, ou which stood a large ink-battle, and near to this again was the hat with which the dominie always crowned him self when he assumed the authority. I mounted the desk, took a piece of string from my pocket, tied the ink-jar and, hat together, then, descending from i my perch, left the room, and ran around to the side window to prepare Margaret for the result of my device. Then 1 ( ran home to dinner, and returned to school iu tlie afternoon. . -0 fe 'I was late. All the children werAni the room ; and at the master's desk stood Magaret, with triumphant eyes, just re ceiving the last blow of the leather strap on her hand. The punishment of my mischievous revenge had been visited up on her. Streams of ink discolored, the master's face; and books and desk, on which last lay the broken . ink-stand, were saturated with it. The master him self was furious ; and the more so that Margaret had borne the infliction like a heroine, iu perfect silence, resolutely re fusing to give up the name of the delin quent, whose accomplice she was accused of being. She looked at me as she moved defiantly away, and the expression of her eyes warned me not to speak. It was, indeed, too late. I hurried from the room before I was observed ; Margaret walked proudly after me, and for the last time we took our way home together from tlie school.' .' 1 cannot do justice to this story as .told by tlie old navigator. Nearly seventy years had passed away, and yet the mem ory of his child love was still the green spot or Ins heart. He and Margaret met but once after ward. He dwelt most on the first . of these meetings. 'I was travelling,? he said, 'in Scotland, when the coach stopped to take up a passenger. Ihe moment the door opened knew her at once, but she did not remember me;' he sighed as he said this. 'Then,' he con tinued, 'I told her who I was, and re minded her ol old times, thirty years before, and of that story of the ink- bottle, and the beating she had got .tor my sake. She had almost forgotten it, but Merer Add.' Margaret, the mother of a large family, and now an aged wo man, had probably thought little of Johnnie Itoss after parting with him in childhood, while he, literally voyaging trom pole to pole and having but a pass ing glimpse of her from time to time, may be said to have carried the memory of his child-love to the grave. Among other pleasant records of my life will rest the memory of 'many an ancient story,' told in his eightieth year, by Sir John Ross. Some modern ones were there, too, in which pathos and bathos were exquisitely blended. There was one of the discovery at sea, by the Isabella, of himself and his shipmates. He had once commanded this ship, and lie knew her immediately, half blind with weakness and starvation as he was; and there was another of his meetings in London with his son, who, through good report and evil report, had 'never given him up.' These might find a place in these columns, but that I think it would be unfair to trench upon the domain of whomsoever shall be selected as editor of the autobiography which Sir John was occupied in compiling, up to tne last lew weeks ot ms evenfiiu ute. ANECDOTES OF PUBLIC MES. BY COL. J. W. FORNEY. "Vvell, tutverr - exclaimed .poor Sally, vehemently blowing her nose and rubbing ner eves violently, "how. can you talk of dying so, and never feel frightened nor nothing well, there! 1 couldn't feel so to my dying day." "It's because I'm a Christian, Sally, and true Christians never tear death, he- cause it's the opening of a new life to them, and not the cold grave they look at. s They feel sure of waking with a new body, and new power, as you leel ot see ing the dawn of another day, or perhaps I should say, as little dread that they snail wake up m eternity "It's past my comprehension," said Sally, with another grutl'demonstration ot teeling "but 1 was going to say, -lt Trevor, that if vou wanted any work carried home, I've done up my ironing, audi 111 8 lor 5"" mow; antl.it that fellow gives me any more tuiper- ence about my cheeks or eyes, I'll slap him right in the lace, that 1 will. "Then I shouldii t get any more work," said the widow, with' a faint smile. "Xo more you wouldn't," replied the girl, sottly, "but can t a' body show that she ain't to lie put upon? Impudent pnppies, they think, some ol them inn nybobs do, that because a girl ain't rich, or educated, or such things, that, she ain't got proper self-respect. Only let 'em try to give any more insulting speech es, and I'll get my Jo, if he hasn't wait ed on me niore'n a mouth, to jest 'go there and give him tlie best horsewhip ping ne ever nail and he s had more than one, I'll be liound." Saying this, she left the room to run opiosite and letcn ner bonnet then as she held the roll of work in her arm, a sudden thought seemed to strike her. "It s real pleasant," she exclamed, lin gering at the door, "maybe you would n t t rust her with me, but. 1 won't let go her hand ouc't ; and she looks so pale, This she said pointing to Mariam, iu whose eyes, as they were raised with an anxious, inquiring gaze to the face of the widow, a gleam of light had been kindled. ill nring ner nack as caret ul as careful as as gold, if you'll let her, and I'll dress her, slilliKiks nice enough oulv a. bonnet may she? To this the widow assented, pointing to the closet where the child's lielter clothes though sadly worn at the best were kept, and Sally proceeded with great alacrity to put thein on. lucking tne yellow ringlets very care fully within tlie faded lionuet, the wid ow gave many a charge to Sally, and kissing her darling, sent her, for the first time, out ol her presence, then weanlv moved about to provide their homely slipper Sir John Ross' First Love. BY HENRY WIIITI.AW. Sir John Ross, the well known navi gator, is dead. He lived to lie nearly eighty years of age, and within the last live mouths ot his lite, 1 heard him ten the story of his first love. Thus it came nlMMit. We were wont to meet him at tlie house of a mutual friend, where he was always a welcome guest; came and went as he listed, and had his hammock swung iu a chamber where the tempera ture suited him best, tor he loved a cold, clear atmosphere. In a word, he was the centre of as charming a household group as shall lie seen any day in the great metropolis. Blooming faces shone upon him, merry songs greeted him as he took his place la?side the cheery health in those cold evenings iu spring. One bright haired creature, with rosy lips, claimed him ever as her own, seated him beside her on the velvet couch, called him "her dear boy," which delighted the ancient mariner beyond all things, and at last drew from him the tale referred to. 1 had been reminding him of a very old friend, now dead, and of whom we had heard nothing tor many years. As I spoke, a tide of early recollections swept up and filled the old man's eyes with tears. 'All, said he, 'he was a very kind friend to me. We had been school mates, and then we went to sea together. After awhile we parted, and I entered the royal navy. When 1 next saw I was commander on lioard the . He was on the quay at.

'Xow about Margaret,' said the Ikuiiiv creature nesme bun 'Ah ! she was a noble girl ! When I first knew her she was ten, and I about twelve years old. We used to walk home together from the school, and at first were very happy; but beiore long the children began to watch us, and we were obliged to make signs to one another alxiitt meet ing. 1 mind well how shame-faced w were when the others caught us making signals beiore breaking up; and one day the master saw us, and It was on tliaroi casion Margaret showed such spirit am courage as made nie never forget her.

XXVIII. We are all the unconscious actors and spectators iu the world's theatre. The parts we play, and the scenes we ap plaud, are the double substance of the current attraction. In 1844 we had the drama of the Native American riots in Philadelphia; in 1854 the sensation of Know-Xothingism ; and seven years later the tragedy of tlie rebellion. And now. at the end of another decade, the curtain rises before the New York out break of the 12th of July, 1871. This last is too fresh for the historian, and so we refer it to the tribunal of time, con tent to let its seeds work their way among tlie minds of men, and sure of the harvest for the right. For, as the riots of 1844, and the frenzy of 1854, and the tragedy ot I86I-60, were each tol- lowed by good results, so will the last sad evidence of bad passions attain its ultimate compensation. In our happy country our 1 letter nature secures the fluid mastery. - Kvil men and evil meas ures dominate for awhile, but they are finally crushed, inevitably and witltout exception. 1 .leaving the authors or the rebellion to the fate they deserve, it seems to tne a not, inopportune task to recall some 01 the leaders ot the excitements ot 1844 and 1854. They are nearly , all iu their graves, but they are keenly remembered 111 the ngnt ot recent events, ine iace and form of Lewis C. Levin rises before me as I write. In this section, at least. for six years the uncontested Native American chief, he is conceded to have been the founder of his party. Born m South Carolina, on the loth day of Nov ember, 1808, and dying in Philadelphia on the 14th ot March, IsbU, he was quali fied for a longer career, though it may be claimed that in his day he filled a large space In the public eye. He had an immense following. Blending relig ious with political passions, he domi nated in our conventions, electing him self and others to Congress, carrying most ot the local ottlces 01 fliiladeiiilna and erecting in the First Pennsylvania district, now the . tronghold of the very ( atholics he opposed, a power that was. while it endured, really invincible. Per haps the very ferocity of the onset of Mr. Leviu and his cohorts gave the sym pathy of others to the Catholics. A fer vid speaker and nervous writer, he was conspicuous 011 the opci, plattorm, the Congressional loruin, and 111 the public press. Some or Ins speeches in the house were models ot iiopular oratory. Parties reeled, lioliticians changed and cowered before the fiery eloquence of tins daring reformer, whose words, re peated to-day, have a strange and almost prophetic signihcauce. 1 am proud to claim that I was not one of those who feared to take issue with his doctrines, and this because now 1 find myself ar rayed against the dangerous dogmas enunciated oy certain grave potentates, and too sadly illustrated by their igno rant and misguided followers. The lires lighten by .Mr. Jevin were subdued by other questions, but thev were not extinguished. When he had almost passed from the stage of notifies, and the Democrats regained their lost power, they broke out again iu 1834,. ex tending over a wide field, and lor a time threatening a more permanent demoli tion of parties; but, like its progenitor, Kiiow-Xothiugism was too fierce and il logical to last. It died of its secies v and when this was dissolved the whole organization passed away like an exhala tiou. The Aaron's roil of anti-slavery swauoweu up another issues, and ftuow Xothingism was lost iu Secession, which even in 1854 began to project Its black shadow, like a monstrous demon, upon the scene. If Levin was the master-spirit w ho or ganized Native Americanism in 1844, Henry A. Wise, of Virginia, was Ihe tearless knight w ho did most to put down Ktiow-Xothiiigisiu ten years later. The two men were marked antipodes contrasts in demeanor . as in doctrine. Levin was a stout and well-built man. with a sonorous voice, and a eommand- lean, tall and cadaverous, with vehe menceaud tones not unlike John Ran dolph's, and a steel-spring energy that, despite feeble health, never . bent or broke. His campaign for Governor in 1855 was one of the most successful in politics. The new party was carrying everything before it. It had enlisted some of the first intellects of the time men like Heury Winter Davis," Henry W. Hoffman, and J. Morrison Harris, of. Maryland; Henry M. Fuller, of Pennsylvania; John S. Carlisle, of Vir ginia; Zollicofl'er and Etheridge, of Ten nessee; George Kiustis, of Louisiana; Humphrey Marshall, A. K.Marshall and W. L. Underwood, of Kentucky. Mary land, Delaware, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, had in whole or in part bowed to the torrent, when Wise came forth and breasted and broke it. His speeches were unique, original ; and resistless. He traversed his State from the AHeghanies to the sea. , He was ubi quitous. He became more than ever a national figure. Thousands of dollars were lost and won on the Issue. The only money I ever wagered on an election waa live hundred I ventured on Wise. Mr. Leviu died, as I have stated, in March of I860, in his' fifty-second year, but Henry A. Wise is still living in his sixty-filth. His has been a stormy ex perience. He graduated at. Washington College, Pennsylvania, at the age of nineteen, was admitted to the bar at Winchester. Virginia, in 1828. and re-i moved tlie same year to Nashville, 1n nesssee. where he practiced his profession for a short time. Returning to his native county of Accouiac, Virginia, he ;was elected a Representative iu Congress in lsJ3, and served until 1844. ile was an extreme Whig up to the time John Tyler quarreled with, that party, after which he gradually uuited with the Democrats, and in 1855 became their candidate for Governor of .Virginia and was elected. He held that position until 1800. ne w-as a confederate brigadier general, ana ma his uttermost to excite the people of the South against the Government. Intense, impetuous and rapid, he is a very formid able adversary on the hustings and at the bar. His opposition to General Jack son was exceedingly virulent ana able. He figured prominently tn the lament able duel at Bladensburg, Maryland, on the 24th of February, 1838, between Jonathan Cilly, of Maine, a Democrat, ana William J. Graves, 01 nentucxy, a Whig. . Few events ever excited greater horror. It was the first of many trage dies growing out of the arrogant inso lence of the slaveholders. They fought with rifles, at eighty yards, and .when Cilly fell,, in tlie thirty-sixth year of his age, a bright light was extinguished and a noble neart stilled. Wise was the un doubted dictator of the Tyler adminis tration, standing between tne two great parties iu the House, he delighted in his isolation and rioted in the eccentricities of his genius. Sent as minister to Bra zil in 1844, and remaining there pntil 1847, he made himself notorious by some of the maddest diplomatic explosions. He had been appointed minister to ranee in 1843, and resigned his place to aecept the post, but, the Senate would notcon firm him, and .his constituency immedi ately returned liim to Congress.; He was uovernor 01 irginia-wnen onn Brown was executed, ahd made the worst use of that event in preparing the people for the coming rebellion. ' He lost one or two sons in that struggle, and is now, I believe, in tne active practice or tils profession. ' .. , The fatal error in the Native American and Know-Nothing excitements wa$ that the first warred against all Catholics and tlie second against all foreigners.; We must wait to see how the present assault by Irish Catholics upon Irish Protestants win end. it is a new pnase, ana must work out new results, especially in view of late develomnenta in Italy. France. Germany and Spain, in all of which re publican members of the Church of Rome, like Hvacinthe In France. Gari baldi in Italy, Dollinger 1 n Germany, and Castellar in Spain, have taken arms boldly against the extraordinary assump tions of the rope ana ms college 01 car dinals. Dollinger is already being Called tlie Luther of his time, and Garibaldi is the soldier who fights for liberty in the name ot the crucified saviour. 1 Should this movement crystalize, it may revolutionize by liberalizing the Catholic Church. Let us not despise these signs of the times. They are numerous. The past history of the American sentiment is a profound phil osophy worthy of the statesman's care ful study. The appointment ot so many foreigners in New York by the Demo cratic party in the spring of '44 -was so odious that the Native Americans carried that great cltv in all its departments. electing James Harper mayor, (the vene rable head ot tne pubiisning nouse 01 that name, now deceased),- and carrying the Board or Aldermen. The contagion then spread to Philadelphia, when Levin took up the cause, and, as I have shown, carried it to a grand .success. Defeated for a season. It Is again revived by causes that have a deeper root and extend over tlie whole area of civilization. How these will germinate and grow, whether into a creed or faction,' into a great mis sion or a new mischief, is one of the mys teries of the age. , THE POET'S MI'KIAI., All lovers of the good and beautiful will learn with regret. the death of Phoebe cary, at 'Newport,'' on Monday night.

' Aged 45 years. was borne into All Saints' Church at the AN ADVENTI RK. , . BY K. P. BABTOf. I ran across what first struck me an a very singnlar genius 011 my road from Springfield to Boston. This was a stout, black-whiskered man who , sat . immedi ately in front of me, and who. indulged, from time to time, In the most strange and unaccountable maneuvers. Every now and then he would get up and hur ry away to the narrow passage which leads to the door iu these drawing-room ears,, and when he thought himself se cure from observation would fall to laughing in. the most violent manner, ana continue the healthful exercise un til he was as red in the face as a lobster. Asheneared Boston, these demonstra tions increased in violence, save that the stranger no longer ran away to laugh, but kept his seat and chuckled to him self with his chin deep down in his shirt collar. :J But tlie changes that those port mauteaus underwent! He moved them there, here, everywhere, he put them be hind him, on each side of him. He was evidently getting ready to leave, but, as we were twenty -Jive miles from Boston, the idea of such early preparations , was ridiculous. It we had entered tlie city then, the mystery would have remained unsolved, but the stranger at last became so excited that he could keen his seat no longer. Some one must help him, and as Iwas the nearest he selected me. Sud denly turning, as if I had asked a ques tion, hesaid. rockim? himself to and frn corner of Fortieth street and Fourth in his chair the meautime, and slapping avenue, which was previously well filled his legs, aud breathing hard : 'Been gone with a congregation composed mostly or three years!' 4Ah!'

Ale drew a lesson irom the. laitn of the pious Jews, who met death in the the lull assurance that after death they ould he with their loving Creator. If they, in the darkness. of their' time; had this consoling hope, how much more should we, with the assurance of the loving mercyi of Jesus,. Christ?

The following hymn, written by the deceased in looz, was then sung, with great enect by tlie choir -. - One sweetly solemn thought ' Comes to raeo'er ami o'er; . . J'm nearer iny home to-day , .

Last Saturday a boy aged fifteen years, sou of a widow named Susan Williams, residing: in Danville, 111., had his arm tuuuv ineer.iten inn torn ov a leonara. in . Kosston, Sprinser & Henderson's show. Tlie boy went in before the show right, but in a hysterical sort of way, as he looked over tlie crowd. I followed his eyes, and saw some distance back, as if crowded out, shouldered away by the weii-uressea and eioowing throng, a lit tle woman in a faded dress and .well worn hat, with a face almost painful in its intense but hopeless expression, glancing rapidly from window to win dow as the coaches glided in. She had not yet seen the stranger; but a moment after she caught hlseye, and in another was oiiened, while the hands were get tin e the rins readv. and went behind the rope which was stretched In front of i,Yu I.5 1 lumia to thi Tii rf, ff crld s'tZeaus tdttg Its paw through between the bars and tfautrht the bov's hand, drew his arm in, and commenced teari ne the flesh with his ;harv and powerful teetn. some oi the showmen ran to the bov's rewue. and with iron bars succeeded in getting the arm out ofthe leopard s mouth. ir.

This we think rather a magnani mous action on the part of Mr. Hender son, as the bov had no business liehintl tlie rope, and if he had stayed In his proper place the animal would not have hurt hiiu. At last accounts the boy was getting along well, but it was feared at first that the arm would nave to ne am putated. a hole in the crowd, pushing one here anu another mere, and runiunir on, or his bundles plump into the well devolop ed stomach of a venerable looking old gentleman iu spectacles, lie rushed to ward the ulace where she was standtns, I think 1 never saw a face assume so many different expressions in so short a time as did that ol the little woman while her husband was on his wav to her, . i She didn't look pretty.
