The lark may sing her sweetest song, As rising from the waving corn, Ob souring wises, she 8 Vims along To welcome in the rising room ; Her sweetest song is nought to me. Compared to home's sweet harmony. Deep in the woods, the nighingale. At midnight's hour, may. tune her lay. May ponr npon the listening rale Her loveliest streams of melody: Lovely her midnight lay may be, But lovelier home's sweet harmony. Sweet are the songsters of the spring, And of the summer's sonny days. And autumn's feathered warblers sing In rapturous strains their sweetest lays; Lovely the song of bower and tree. But lovelier home's sweet harmony. But, oh, what cheers the winter night, When all around is dark and gloom. When feathered songsters take their flight. Or fill a gloomy little tomb? Tis at such hours as these that we rrize most our home's sweet harmony. Oh when dark clouds above us lower, . And life's drear winter o'er us comes, Tis then we feel yonr magic power. Ye songsters or our hearts and homes; For soon the lowering clouds do flee From our dear home's sweet harmony. Miscellaneous. LIFE IN EGYPT. BY A BOOK PEDDLER. I had been ordered into the twenty conn lies known as Egypt, in Southern Illinois, to sell out our remnimn" stock of Douj?- las pictures and lives. It was not a pleas ant prospect, nor did it look to be profita ble. cut one must obey orders, and 1 wrote to J. F . at V mcennes to rig me np an establishment suitable, and I picked out a proper quantity of old clothes, selected a route given Messrs. Phillips, Piatt k Schenck through the hardest part of the benighted icgiou, and, on the 20th Oct, last, left Cincinnati for the scenes of my labor. The express train stopped at Lawrence' ville station at 2 o'clock A. M., the latter part of about as dark a night as Egypt might ever hope for. While feeling about for my wares, I heard (for seeing was out of the question) the voices of three unhappy slumbers-sent down as missionaries to en lighten the natives. After 1 had secured my stock 1 joined them. W here to go was then the question -that agitated the country. - We might at any moment nave more rain, and -was necessary to una a shelter other than the station-house. Fully mpressed with the fact,, the political teachers made an attack on what seemed to be a tavern, some hundred yards from the railroad, The heavy knocking brought, for some time, no response. At - last a window went np, and an ugly voice de manded our business. This was stated to be lodging for the night. "Can t git it here, was the unpleasant response. "Why not; is not this a hotel ! "Well, it was last week, but its gone up," and down slammed the window, as Hood would have said, with a wooden damn, that served as a previous question, clcaing up the further debate. Mr. Phil lips said that the town was at least twe miles away. Far or near nothing was left us but to seek it and so we trudged away. We had not made more than half a mile before Piatt gave out, and announced gravely that in the road he and grief would sit on a band trunk until the committee witn a band of music, waving great ban ners, should come out and meet them.--It was useless to remonstrate; and nothing but an offer on my part to carry said hand trunk, leaving him to transport said grief, moved the orator. He begged me to han dle the luggage carefully, as it contained his speech and - a clean shirt. After a tedious time of wearisome stumbling we made the town, and found the sign post that indicated so faithfully cheap indiges tion, bad whisky, and bedbugs. We as sailed the bouse with furious knocks, and a reasonoble time heard someone with in, and soon the dim glimmer of a tallow ip made darkness visible. A slender specimen of weak humanity again gave us the pleasing information that this, too, bad been a tavern in days gone by, but like the one at the station had "gone up," or rather, to judge lrom apearances, bad gone own.' 1 found the honorable gentlemen s trunk, containing that speech and shirt, entirely loo heavy for further transporta tion, and so pushed by the nocturnal lu minary made up of tallow and ague. "1 guess, L sad, giving my best speci men of Yankee vernacular, "we can find room to lie down if the whisky and grub are out." A silent assent was given to this prop osition, and we were shown to a large room, where the remnant of some beds gave ev idence of departed glory. Here, for five long hours, we fought the real owners of the Dremisses. and. after davliVhL discov- o ' ered that we narrowly missed an excellent bouse of entertainment, kept a few paces further on by a good publican Republican. The committee was grived at the manner their missionaries bad fared, and said that they bad been expected by the noon train, when the "procession" would have conduc ted them in glory to the meeting. : So far I Lave been blessed with ' beauti ful autumn weather. The roads are in a fine condition, the air pleasant, and the nights bright with full mooni and no clouds. propose to eive some account of the men, manners and real condition of this part of the Free States, where democracy yet reigns in all is former glory. Let me give you a specimen scene. We were at Fairfield, White county, the hardest place in the entire circuit, if we except Cario. where the original Dounlas Democracy is condensed into Irishism. was told that Ttog Island one of those to as of of A for to on ly, to which one journeys by land bounded Fairfield civilization on the south. The only Rupblican meeting attempted before this had been welcomed with ers an brickbats, and this was threatened with like reception. The political missionaries, nothing daunted, accompanied by a small band of Wide Awakes from Liberty in the same couDty, marched to the Court House, pinning up my pictures, spreading out my books before their arrival, I observed some ugly looking customers piling up stone: bricks where they would be bandy, while leading Democrats of the town earnestly remonstrated. 1 he remonstrances carried I presume, for the crowd entered the build ins unmolested. The threats had nol served to sooth the speakers by any means. Mr. Phillips rubbed down the Lprptains in no very plos- ant manner. The Robert C. Schenk has been for many years celebrated for his powers of sarcasm which, by graphic abuse, when required, be can bring w ithin the comprehension of the most obtuse; ivhile i iatt s early education and communion with the Democracy peculiarly fitted him for that use of grotesque humor so very aggravating, ihc enect was singular. Instead of interruptions and abuse, the Democrats, joined in the laugh, and, before the meeting closed, applauded like good fellows. I saw a long, thin, angular speci men of Egyptian darkness looking at my pictures. ' 'Would vou like to have a picture of Douglas ?" I asked. "No, Sir-ee," he replied, "I'll take pictur' of Old Abe, if ye'll sell cheap." "Whr, are you a Lincoln man ! "Well I am now." "Why does that happen ?" "Je8 so ; I was 'ph'ted from Frog Island tolher night to egg the speakers at that other Black Republican raeetin', and I did I got all the old egsrs I could find, and come on till 1 stood near the door, all ready, and ics at the right time 1 fired away Jes as I fired, that cussed old Sheriff of ours rose up to put a question, and the egg took him slap on the side of the bead. He cussed like mad, and then they held a nieeliu and read me out of the parly. Well, they did jes' as if it was my fault that a fool of a Douglas feller put bis pumpkin head in the way of my egg. "Ihat was nt fair. "Guess not. So I'll vote for Old Abe ef they do resolve the Union. Who cares, I say and Bill Thompson goes with mer "Did they read him out too?" "No. they didn't, by a long sbot. He rode out. He was ridin' by a grocery in Frog, one night, when jus' for fun be hoi lercd for Lincoln, and the fellers run out, anyone said ef he hollered for Lincoln again he shoot; and Uill hollered an sure enough the cbnps gave hiin a blizzard with both barrels. He was shot, an his hoss shot; so his boss run three miles an tumbled Bill into a swamp. The hoss was nigh upon ruined an' the Doctor pick ed forty shot out of Bill's back, An' now be goes for Old Abe. "And you was read out and he was sbot out." "Jes so." JV. T. Tribune. islands spoken of by Sancho Panza, Beaut v. Love and Duty. "Burleigh," the New York correspondent of the Bos ton Journal, gets off the following charm ing little romance: "A short time since one of the many gents that are abroad selecting musical talent for America, sent on to the care of this house a French girl, who was engaged leach for one year in a southern institu tion on a salary of $900 per year. On her way to New York she saw a German merchant of this citt, who was smitten with her, for she was a young lady of daz zling beauty. He followed her to JNew York, and mako a formal proposal for her hand. The gentleman was well known to the head of the house of Adams & Co., a gentleman of wealth and standing. But the young teacher declined the propo sal, at least till her contract for leaching should expire, and ibe consent of her pa rents obtained. But the gentleman was not to be put off. The lady had great con fidence in the integrity of the company, and relied on what the house of Adams & Co. said of the honor and position of the supplicant. She relented and yielded, and cards are now out for the wedding at one our most fashionable hotels, and this young adventurer, with nothing but her talents and beauty, will soon beat the neaa an establishment, with a husband worth 45300,000." Judge Baldwin's Reasons.

Just before be moved to California, a gentleman now dead, and well remembered his eccentricity, forwarded an old claim Mr. Baldwin for collection, due by a cit izen of Mississippi, in a county bordering Alabama. In due time he received a letter in relation to it from Mr. Baldwin, which be handed to us for perusal, taking the reply in high dudgeon. Mr. Baldwin wrote him that he could not collect the sum for three reasons: First, when the debtor was alive be obtained judgment against bim, and the execution was return ed with the endorsement "No property found. Secondly the debtor was dead and the estate hopelessly insolvent. Third and as a last reason, he did not prac tice where he believed the creditor bad gone tOj XSTAt a Republican Festival given at the Wigwam at Springfield, III, a few days since, the ladies, who love the generous and gallant standard bearer, presented Mr. Lincoln with two magnificent loaves of cake one representing a log and mil cab and the other his private residence.

It is of white marble, some- hat stained by time and neglect. Nel son is represented in bis costume of admi ral, and bears on bis breast five decora tions. One, in the commemoration of the battle of Aboukir, has the inscription : Rear-Admiral Lord Nelson of tbe Nile." Another medal has the words: "Al mighty God has blessed his Majesty's glory!" ibis bust, inteiesting in its artistic and islorical associations, was found on the al tar devoted to the fetish worship, where for half a century it has been reverenced the Deity of the Mountain Streams.

Romance Portland (Maine.) Advertiser of last week relates tne following story. "When the Royal British squadron lay at anchor in our harbor, not only our own citizens but hundred from the interior towns of our country went onboard to ex amine the rare sight to them of a first class sbip-of-war, with her armameDt, and crew of nearly niue nundred persons inclu ding officers. "One day, as a resident of one of the interior towns in this country, about twelve miles from Portland, was looking about be low decks, and seeing here a sailor stretch ed on the hard plr.nk sleeping as soundly as if his bed were of sof:est down, tbere another coiled nnon a son with a harder iron for a pillow, while others were reading by the dim light of a lamp, or busy in the unsex-like act of plying the needle, as our rural friend, looking around, saw all these strange sights, he was supprised to see one ot Her majesty s sailors step out from bis mess, bold out bis hand "for a shake," and call him by name. He, of course, return ed the recognition, but utterly atalos-to know how a sailor down between the decks of a British man of-war should know him and the town where he resided. Walking a little aside, ibe sailor soon told his story wbicb, in brief, was this: Some 14 years since or more, he became possessed with a desire to "see the world," and left tbe old homestead, which was not a great distance from that of the visitor and in tbe same town. He shipped on board a vessel, and after several voyages arrived in England. Here, as usual, Jack had to live ashore, and one night joined his companion "in a spree." The oblivion of liquor threw its SDel over his brain, and when be awoke to sobriety and consciousness, he found himself on board a British man-of-war, He claimed to Da an American, but his plea only led them to set a closer watch upon him. r or twelve long and varied years be bad served on board of various ships of war, and now, when within twelve or fifteen miles of bis boyhood's home, the love of u.u uu wuik-, .i lauuuni umo .uu well known bill sides, all conspired to give him courage to revisil ihem, which he had often resolved to carry out, but never had found a filling opportunity. A few hours after this interview, there might have been seen down below the or j.,..i. r .i,.i - ft iiii ui-ia, vi uii5uiF, t.u .cnu.13, t..m ui wnom nppeareri to oe in toe act ot .lives- ting himself of his clothes, but seemed to t .,.t .Ml- iitj u.i e.-.ira Suit urnier ins external coier- ing. JNear him was a sailor, who, in less lime than we can tell it, was stripped of his man-of-war rig, nnd stood forth from his dark hole in a down east suit of frock- coat and land lubber boots. Pulling a pair of Yankee shoes from one pocket, and Kossuth hat somewhat jammed from tbe other, Her Majesty's sailor walked up the gang-way a genuine Yankee in dress as well as in blood. To pass the marine guard at the ship's gang-way, with tbe crowd similarly attir ed, was an easy task for the two townsmen; and once on shore they made direct for their homes the wanderer of many years content to remain among li is own nauve hills, in one of the most quiet but beautiful towns in Cumberland county, thoroughly cured of his love of wandering to see the world. I a Couldn't go It. In the winter of 1857, about midnight, passenger with a carpet sack in one hand and a heavy shawl in tbe other, entered tbe ireraont House in Chicago. Walking: directly to the office, he hailed the ckrk who presided at tbe desk. It being late at night, almost every one bad left tbispopu- a tr exchange of ihe great northwestern me tropolis, and the clerk bad fallen to nod ding. Awakened by the salutation of the stranger, be jumped up. "Ah, Mr. Harris, glad to see you; just arrived, 1 suppose from Detroit! "Just in; very tired; have not had my clothes off for two days; straight from New York. Uatr you give me a room V "I am flfiaiJ not; we are very full." "You must stretch a point, for I must have a room," replied Harris. After looking over tbe register some mo men's, the clerk snid "I can put you in the same room Judge Douglas occupied the last time he was here."

And see what portent is thatcominf J t londa alone could produce this creation It is landed proprietor from the interior but people to the manor born do not call bim by this respectful name. They style him a "piny woods Cracker." He is riding bis own horse a small native pony, whose only currycomb is the most convenient thornbush whose ears are of the half-lop variety head abased and tail but no it is not fair to speak slightingly of the absent, it is .to be hoped that an equal regard to fairness moves the Ianden proprie tor to take turns with the pony in carrying their united weight, for tbe sand is deep, and webther horse or man be the heavier is not obvious. The man is arrayed as for a fancy dress ball. An immense sombrero of braided palmetto shades his ratty little black eyes, long rueful cheeks, and bronzed beak-like nose. Beneath tbe palmetto long grizzly locks straggle down upon the tom aud particolored shoulders of what may ages ago have been a blue sack coat, but is now so shrunken or outgrown that its pockets come close under his arms, and its tails flutter about tbe small of his back, His trousers are blue and white bedtick. A calico shirt, whose pattern is black spots on red ground, cost orriginally six cents per yard besides the trouble of making up by the laden proprietress are lady Crack- eress of the backwoods cabin whence it emanated and is thus too valuable to be concealed by any vest. Tbe man who cut the bedtic pantaloons was generous, but they are short, and permit us to see so much of an original Flordia pair of legs as is comprised between the neighborhood of the knee and that of the ancle.

[Correspondence of the London Times.] The French Troops About Rome According to the last two numbers of the Giornale di Roma, the arrival of French troops and the re-establishment of Pontifical authority at various places at the ratnmonio have been productive of many demonstrations of joy and attachment to the Pupal rule. At Castlenuovo aod Cm la Castellnna the Pope s arms were resto red to their places amid the exultation of the people and unanimous cries of " Viva Pio Nono!1 uttered by "a population overjoyed at the opportunity of manifest ing its true sentiments.

Did you ever know a little pair of gait er boots to turn one inch either to the right or left when they could have saved you from a streaming gutter by tbe opera tion ! Patent leathers dont behave so not they! Did yoa ever bear a woman say, "I am sorry to have given so much trouble,'' when the dry goods clerks had turned things top- sy turvy, without finding the shade or col or that never existed I - Did you ever know a Woman who did not know it was "outrageous'' for another woman to travel with a baby, or wbo didn't regard it as ."cruel and barbarous," if any one objected to the crying of her baby!

Frits in a Stew--Lager to the Rescue.

Fritz Klaraerbach, nn honest young Ger- . man, having recently wedded a fairy crea- ; ture "to the manor born," thus forming an individual alliance between America and tho Fatherland, invested the hoard of sev en years' experience in making apparel for the human form, in a pleasant cottage, in which be placed bis happy bride. Tbe joys of wedded life rolled on uninterrupted ly for several months, when ono day an old acquaintance of the blissful couple drop ped in, and made himself agreeable enough '' to the lady to excite the ire of the faithful Fritz.

He did not dream that Fritz was on hand, having encountered the wor thy husband some distance down town on ly a few moments before, and when he . sank into the bosom of his adored, the jealous Fritz waded into him from behind, dragged bim into the street, and wallop ed him in the. mud.

His eyes were knocked into imitation of peeled onions, and his nose split like a squashed crab apple, and mixed np so mis cellaneously with his mammoth moustache, that it was difficult to tell which side of his head his mouth was on. As soon as he found himself at liberty, the unhappy beau mizzled, and the mud flew off bis coat-tail and the heels of his boots with the sunbeam splatter of a mud-covered sul ky wheel in a state of frantic circulation. Ibe irascible fritz watched bun till be was out of eigbt, and then nervously scratching his head, shook his fist at bis wife, and in thundering tones exclaimed: "I gets trunk for yon, matam; I trinks all de lager in town; I trinks kirshenwasser, 1 tnuks Jobannisbergo; I innKS every dings, matam, and gets so trunk as never was. luyvi'l! dunaer, yaiyai ana no plunged rapidly through the mud, and when last seen Dy our inrormar.i, was in a condition of that speechless good feeling so peculiarly illustrative of the healthy ef fects of lager, ami the sedative results that arise from its from its frequent imbibiiion.
