And far aljove the ages' din, And prouder than the song Of conquering legions, eoiue their words Of "suffer and be strong-" In hermit cell, and dungeon home. Sang projihot, hard, and sage, And Clod's inspired ones paused awhile Above their burning page, And with a strength to sweep adown The vale of coming years. To rise in triumph o'er the tide Of human griefs and tears. To smile unoii a world of hate. Of calumny, and wrong. The scen t of their might confessed, In, "suffer and be strong. Xiw from the misty past, alone. Thro visions far and dim. From h ro lips of storied brave. Comes floating down the hymn; But o'er the earth, wheree'er a pulse Of human life is stirred, Still floating out above the din, A victor song is heard. And sometimes saintly sweet and clear. And sometimes proud and strong. We catch it glorious burden, still, Of "suffer and le strong." And white lips over aching hearts Are sadly pressed to-day. As, witli Ijowed form, man turns aside To hide his woes away; And woman strives her griefs to Veil, And shut her sobbings in, And turns, her woman's heritage Of suffering to win, Then, wreathed in smiles of patient trust. They oen to the song That they so long and well have learned, Of "suflT.T and be strong." And youthful feet press bleeding o' r The thorny path of life; Aud some also, temptation led. Have fallen in the strife; But tho' they rose to firmer tread. And strove with bitter tears, To wash each eirly stain away.

SAXE'S THREE TRAVELERS. 1 Saxe, in a letter to the Boston Post, draws these portraits of three familiar trav- elers: i 1st, the man who travels with his wife;' 2d, the man who travels with his wife's sister: 3d. the man who travels with an-, other m;.us wife, The first case is extremely common, and not particularly interesting. The man is and sleeps apparently as much as he can ; the woman has a slightly subdued expression of face, and looks a good dea' at the scenery along the road, of which she says, for the most part nothing. When she docs speak, as something very rcmar-' kal'lc' she saJs "Soc Jouu "that is all." nc man 0l3 carefully after the baggage, anJ assures his spouse, in reply to a ques- Of tijn' that it; 's "all. right" The woman takes care oi the small "traps, and seems a comfortable and contented. Altogether, lt they lichave quite rationally, and, in spite their seeming unsociability, are really foud of each other, and will make a very pleasant trip of it not only to the cud of their railroad tour, but to the tcr- minus of their matrimonial journey. j The man who travels with his wife's sis- ter, carries himself, perhaps, iu the main, i - like the man who travels with his wife. But he is much more talkative, aud takes more pains to Iks agreeable.

This sort of CJ- however, is, I believe, auti-Lc-'. aud some of the theologians don't approve of it which is a pity. as The man who travels with another man's wife is of much more marked behavior.

Look out for the No- y j,,.-,, An Amusing Proposition. One of the most amusing propositions of i the day is to unite the electoral tickets of Douglas aud Brecke.nridge in some of the Ilistcrn States, so that the whole Dem ocratic vote may be made to couut for some one Democratic candidate. At the same time that the delightful arrangement was in progress, rival aud hostile Democratic organizations would be trying to destroy each other, rival Democratic papers would be denouncing each other, aud then when it was all over, the Douglas men would help pnt in office the very faction they ''.ro.a'S3 l0. 'S In tne great pnn- ciple, aud which they now denounce as slavery fanatics and disuuionists! This would be absurd! Such are the men and such the acts that arc to represent the principle of "Popu lar S-jrereignty" at the coming November election. I cannot fiud words more appli cable to the occasion than those of Horace Mann, in his oration on the "Evils of Ig norance" "Iu all the dread catalogue of moral sins, there is not one, but in that host there are hearts which have willed, and hearts which have perpetrated it The gallows has spared its victims, the prison has released its tenants from daik cells where malice had brooded, where iu cendiarism and lust hid engendered their machinations, where revenge and robbery had held their mighty rehersals, the lep- rous multitudc is disgorged, aud comes up to the ballot-lwx to foredoom the destinies of this nation.

In this hour of our country's peril. thoy have come up to turn the folly of which they arc unconscious, into measures which they cannot understand, by votes which they cannot read."

Our furniture is common chcr- j rj, aud our chairs bottomed with cat-tail J fl .gs. Our spoons are mostly pewter sil- vsr being rather uncommon.

If a wafer be laid on a surface of polished met al, which ia then breathed upon, and if, when the moisture of the breath has evap orated, the wafer be shaken off. we shall find that the whole polished surface is not as it was before, although our senses can detect no difference; for if we breathe again upon it, the surface will be moist every where except on the spot previously shel tered by the wafer, which will now appear as a spectral image on the surface. Again . iani again we breathe, and the moisture evaporates, but still the spectral wafer re . appears. Ihis experiment succeeds after a lapse of many months, if the metal be carefully put aside where its surface can not be disturbed. If a sheet of paper, ou which a key has been laid, be exposed for some minutes to the sunshine, aud then instantaneously viewed in tbc dark, the key being rciuotcd, a fading spectre of the key will be visible. Let this paper be put as;,ie for many months where nothing can disturb it aud then iu daikncss be bid on a plate of hot metal, the spectre ttf tLc key will again appear. In the case of bodi.s more highly phosphorescent than paper, the spectres of many different ob jjects which may have been kid ou iu suc cession, w ill, on wanning, emerge in their proper order. This is equally true of onr bodies and our minds. We arc involved in the uuiversal metamorphosis. Nothing leaves us wholly as it found us. Every man we meet every book we read, every picture or landscape we see, every word or tone we hear, mingles with our being and modifies it. Youth and old Ace. All who have roa'-'liCu mature years arc apt to regard tuc rcr'l of childhood as the balej-on por into tn(;'r existence.

If wc go into a close analysis of tie human heart we think we shall find that it is not the weight of years, but the change in our natures that lead us thus to look back niurnuhingly. True happiness is only to be found ia perfect innocence If we could carry with us into the vale of years th purity of our childhood, we should s ill be as li:irmv r-hihlron rA in l.nmnn n turc, as in other things, extremes meet U,t. , . . , c ., ite happiest mortals are those w i t voiiniT rtnr tn know -urlifit em ;lo8Cho Layc livcJ so w tbat th , . ... asiiaiueu oi it. who are 50 is, and are -iTaxkisd are always happier having bfon li.ir.nv en t'irif If" n m-,V. t.....Ji , ., , nappy now, you make them happy twenty , T , , VPrirs lienr-o htr flip Tnrmoi-r nf if A .l.il.l-- , , , . . , "d passed with a due mixture of ration- , , , , - , , . al ln 1 11 lienor" under fi.ntl nn.l irijrt Tiii-onla ,-cr c .1 11 dlff"3es or the whole of life a feeling of , . , . , .. . e.'llm IiImsHW nml in cvlrnion rI.l nnn . ....V. ...
