When Freedom, from her mountain height, Unfurled her standard to the air, w She tore the asure robe of night, And set the stars of glory there! She mingled with its gorgeous dyes The milky baldric of the skies, And striped its pare, celestial white With streakings of the morning light, Then,from his mansion in thesun, She called her eagle-bearer down, And gave into his mighty hand The symbol of her chosen land ! Majestl oarch of the clod, Who rear'st aloft thy regal form, To hear the tempest trumpings loud, And see the lightning laces driven, When strive the warriorsof the storm, And rolls the thunder-cloud of heaven, Child of the SunI to thee't is given To guard the banner of the free, To hover in the sulphur smoke, To ward away the battle-stroke, And bid its blendings shine afar, Like rainbows on the cloud of war, The harbingers of victory! Flag of the brave! thy folds shall fy, The sign of hope and triumph high ! When speaks the signal trumpet tone, And the long line comes gleaming on, Ere yet the lire-blood warm and wet, Has dimmed the glistening bayonet, Each soldier's eye shall brightly turnm To where thy sky-born glories burn, And, as his springing steps advance, Catch war and vengeance from the glance And when the cannon-monthings load Heave in wild wreaths the battle shroud, And gory sabres rise and fall Like shoots of flame on midnight's pall, Then shall thy meteor glances glow And cowering foes shall shrink beneath Each gallant arm that strikes below That lovely messenger of death. Flag of the seas, on ocean wave Thy stars shall glitter oe'r the brave ; When death, careering on the gale, Sweepe darkly round the bellied sail, And frighted waves rush wildly back Before the broadside's reeling rack, Each dying wanderer of the sea Shall look at once to heaven and thee, And smile to:see thy splendors fly In triumph oe'r his closing eye. Flag of the free heart's hope and home, By angel hands to valor given, Thy stare have lit the welkin dome, And all thy hues were born in heaven. Forever float that standard sheet I Where breathes the foe but falls before us, With Freedom's soil benenth our feet, a And Freedom's banner streaming o'er us! -Joseph Rodman Dre. b A MODEL BERMON. a It should be brief; if lengthy it will steep Our hearts in apathy, our eyes in sleep, C: The dull will yawn, the chapel-loungerdoze, I Attention flag, and memoyr's portals close. jc It should be warm, a living altar coal. To melt the icy heart and charm the soul ; A sapless, dull harangue, however read, Will never rouse the soul or raise the dead. It should be simple, practical and clear, Cl No fne-spun theory, to please the ear; A And leave the poor ano plain uneuiled. It should be manly, just and rational, d Wisely conceived and well expressed withal; 0; Not stuffed with silly notions, apt to stain A sacred desk, and show a muddy brain, P It should be mixed with many an ardent prayer To reach the heart, and fx and fasten there; t When God and man are mutually addreas'd 'I God grants a blessing, man is trulybless'd. -Ancient Poems.

BRTC-A-BRAC. Dr. Schmidt, of the Athens, Greece, Observatory, has recently completed a map of the moon, upon which he has been as siduously laboring for the last 84 years. "It contains 34 craters and hills, besides 850 rills and other objects." It is hardly necessary to say that if Dr. Schmidt had received the assistance from The Man in the Moon that he ought to have had, the map would have been completed many years ago.-Courier-Joornal. Legal opinions furnished by Charles O'Conor, Abraham Browning, Cortland T. Parker, John C. Prettitt, Richard L. Ash. urst, Henry Wharton, William Henry Rawle, Richard C. McMertrie, and William H. Hurst are said to be unanimous in sus taining the Centennial Board of Finance in refusing to pay salaries to the president and other officers of the U. S. Centennial Commission, and in asserting the right of the Board to appoint the needed police. "'here has be.en as dl et benween thetwo bodies, and the Board of Finance contend ed that it is intrusted with the money, and that its president and treasurer are under heavy bonds for the proper expenditure of it, and that the Board should have abso lute control of the fund. The Black Hills Tribune is published in Crook City, and made its appearance on 1 June 9th. Messrs. X. S. Burke & Co. are editors and publishers. Crook City is a new town, having been located May 9th, but its population is already numbered by hundreds. It is the outfitting point for the parties of miners located on Whitewood and Deadwood, being situated at the point where the Whitewood leaves the hills, and the Tribune claims everything for it. The paper is "rather small for its size," being a sixteen column folio, but makes up in ability what it otherwise lacks. Among its advertisements is one of "Webster's Dictionary," which speaks "volumes for the citizens of Crook. c The Challenger has returned to Ports- t mouth after a voyage of three years and 1 six months, with a very complete and val- a nable collection of specimens brought up by dredging. Some of these were brought up from a depth of 2,450 fathoms off the coast of Ascension, and others from the still greater depth of 4,750 fathoms, or about five and one-half miles, in the Pacific during the run from Japan to the Society Islands. Among the other curiosities are sea-elepants from the Straits of Magellan, 14 a gigantic turtle from the Society Islands, a collection of rare birds from Kerguelen Land, a great number of exotics that have a been transferred to the Botanical Gardens " at Kew, and an infinite quantity of relics and oddities of savage or Oriental manu- n facture. But one life was lost during the cruise, which extended over 68,000 miles. a The soundings taken will prove very serv- 51 ioable to the cause of ocean telegraphy. , The Drift of Journalism. The popular exaction of a higher and " completer journalism renders inevitable a' fewerjournals. Only the very great cities, « tion and advertising, can indulge in many different papers. All third and fourth-rate n cities, at least, if they would have good d papers, must be content with few. g1 And, being good, the fewer the better, for 11 the sake of economy and excellence alike. The Utica Obswrver makes a remark is va point by the way of prophecy : "Twenty o' years hence, there will be fewer newspa- ci pers in the state than there are to-day. The ca doctrine of the ' survival of the fittest' will be applied, and those that will withstand g the test will show constant and marked a signs of improvement. The few will take b the place of the many, and there will be no d organs." "No organs," of individuals or b partles--not no organs of communities or opinions. It is essential, however, to this growth in the character and decrease in the h numbers of journals that there should be higher and broader aips in the manage ment of the papers; entire freedom from personal ambition outside of the business; a recognition both of the rights and opin ions of the local communitle and yet, at the same time, a full appreciation and en forcement of their duties and reaponsibili ties to the state and the nation of which they sre apart. To "the survival of the ittest" in journalism as in life, it is essen tfal, first, that there should be a "fittest." Next to that, as an element in the growth toward the better if not the completer era in journalism as in life, is a public recogni tion of the desirability of a few good papers rather than many poor ones, and a prompt gravitation toward the best in ubseriptions and advertlnga-p-Braln gl ..apbnlican.

Oh! a country life is a glorlous life, With us hoeing, mowing bustle; Where the farmer sweat as for all he gets And life depends on muscle. Among the many things we love (for our lovinr nature takes in most anything from a licorice drop to a dynasty) is the country. There is music in the lowing of the bee, the whimpes ing of the cows, the gentle bellow of the egg-manufacturing fowls,and the noisy songs of the variegated butter files There is beauty in that majestic tree of the forest which, year after year, carries on tbefoliage business in all its branches. sre is grandeur in the hills, greenness valleys, and geese by the roadside. re. isomething in the quiet beauty of respects and rustic scenes that finds into o heart. ý .an toneh door s qpacious old ark, and, like Noah of old, bids the occupants go out to browse. Fascinated with the inexhaustible delights of Nature'sbroad conservatory, we can lay down our earnet satchel of care, and, for a time, forget the dunning letters, grocery bills, protested notes, and all the similar rubbish that mark the path our trusting feet have trod. We love to have the light-blowing, oxy genated zephyrs step up and kiss our mid dle-aged countenance; or, if it happens to be a backward season for those kind of zephyrs, we like to have the kissing done by the azure-eyed, rosy cheeked, auburn haired zephyrs that blow around the farm house, and weigh upwards of a hundred and twenty pounds avoirdupois. The man who, amid the wide extending beauties of rural surroundings, cannot loosen the corset-string of his mind and give it the unlaced privilege of expanding, is not a child of Nature; he is an evoluted development and back'in the Devonian age his ancestors were all fossilized clams. As one walks through the luxuriant meadows climbs over the brow and sits on the forehead of the hills, or treads the ver duous pasture-lands, there is something el evating, something that hfts him up; it may perchance be the animated landscape with its varied loveliness, but it is more likely to be the belligerent bull or the bellicose guat that butt the just as well as the unjust But the real objects of interest in rural landscapes are the Grangers. An overall race of benevolent philanthropists, brow sweating to provide mankind with the comforts and luxuries of life. A race that tread the flowery meads in cowhide boots, eat onions, and vote the Republican ticket. They spend their summers in getting some thing to eat and their winters in eating it; the pleasure of one and the profit of the other makes the life of the Granger desira ble. We have seen Grangers whose lives were desirable, but the fear of capital punishment kept us from taking them. With one exception, tilling of the soil is the sweetest employment in which the sons t men can engage ; that exception is the B h1ialiag. bu siness, which is consid rat get his lot. Then he should set about 4e acquirement of a good botanical educa Ion and devote a large share of. his time o the classification of plants, and the ex tmination of those Soft. sweet, petaled flowers, That bloom In Nature's bowers,. And ill this world of onre with hanging baskets, bridal wreaths, and bonnet trimmings. Every farmer should aultivate a taste for flowers and, whether in the barnyard or sitting-room, in the cornfield or pig-pen, always wear upon his bosom a button-hole boquet. Farmers should also be zoologists, and give a few hours of each passing day to the areful study of the growth, instinct, and Susefulness of the animal kingdom. No farmer should think of dying without pre viously writing at least one book on Natu ra History, beautifully embellished with a teel engraving of the author. A thorough knowledge of surgery should also be invoiced with the farmer's assets. The trees, with their limbs constantly ex posed to fractures; the hens that require frequent setting; the hogs whose shoulders need so much curing, and the liability of the ranger himself to get corn in the ear, all seem to demand the attention of a practi cI surgeon. Thus the farmer can, with the book of nature spread out before him, and one or two hired men to turn the leaves, make rapid strides in the sciences, and let his moral nature go on toward perfection. But laa I how often do we find that, with all his ealutary and wholesome surroundings, the farmer lsovetous,panurlous,and fault icnding. Some are even sanken so far in the valleys of degredation that they chew tobaco, ran for ofio, and raise ease.

Yesterday evening 180 Crows, Nez Per ces, Snakes and Pigeons reached this camp under the guidance of Frank Guard, Bap tiste Pourriere and Louis Richardson, who left the encampmentof the expedition to go to their village on June 2. The principal chiefs with the bands here are Old Crow, Medicine Crow, Good Heart and White Forehead. They have with them the best warriors of their tribes.

Gcedesay that small parties of Crown saw General Gibbons' camp on the north side of the Yellowstone River, near the mouth of Tongue River. It was only a short distance from a large village of Sioux warriors, which was supposed to contain all the lodges on the warpath, under com mand of Crazy Horseand Sitting Bull. In attempting to cross the river with his cavalry Gen Gibbons lost a large number of horses. The Sioux also captured the po nies of his Indian scouts. This morning Gen. Crook sent forward five Crows to discover the present position and movements of the hostile band of Sioux. The fighting column, comprising with the Indian auxiliaries, 1,300 men, will com mence to-morrow morning a rapid march toward the Sioux encampment. One hundred and eighty infantry men and the wagon train will be left here under a guard of teamsters and packers. General Crook expects to find on the Yel lowstone a steamboat loaded with supplies provided by General Terry. Only rations for four days' subsistence will be taken with them. CHEYENNE, Wy. T., June 20.-The Crow and Snake allies have joined Gen. Crook on Goose Ureek, and the command marched on the 15th inst., expecting to strike the hoe tile Siouxs under Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse inside of four days. The Crows re port having seen a large Sioux village on Tongue River. Crook Meets the Sioux and Gets the Worst of It. CHEYENAE, June 23.-Crook's command left camp on the morning of the 16th inst., with four day's rations, and struck across to the Rosebud, a branch of the Yellow stone, in Montana. Following down this creek the next morning, about five miles down, the Snake and Crow scouts brought word from the front that the Sioux were in force in the hills and by 8:80 o'clock the command was in position and an extensve fire was inaugurated among the bluffs to the north of the creek. The enemy, who began the attack and showing thereby their confidence in their ability to whip the com well armed, and swarmed in numbers at times. They were prodigal in the use of ammunition. The fight lasted four hours when the enemy retired out of sight at every point. The killed and wounded are follows : In Third Cavalry, Company F.--Ser geant Marshall and Private Roe, were killed. Company I.-Privates Alien and Flynn, killed; Sergeant Enoch, Corporal Cart*, Privates Smith, Stewart, O'Brien and Los seybosky, wounded. 'empany L.-Sergeant Newkirked, Pri vates Bennett, Potte, Connors and Mitch ell, killed; Sergeants Cook EdwardsSnow and Cramer, wounded. Second Cavalry, Company D.-Captain Henry and Sergeant O'Donnell, wounded. Company B.-Private Steiner wounded. the latter are all likely to recover. One Snake scout was killed,three wound ed, and four Crows wounded. The dead bodies of thirteen Sioux were found on the field, and it is certain a nam ber more were killed, with the nausual pro portion wounded. Several Sioux ponies were killed and43eu ral Crook's horse shot under him. The fight ocnured fifty miles from the wagon and pack trains, and owing to the want of rations and that the wounded might be cared for, it was necessary to return thith. er. The offlloers and soldiers displayed marked gallantry; the nature of the groand making the infantry advantageous, Gen. Crook has ordered five companies to join him at once; the cavalry, meantimes, con tinning operations on the plaines and in the Hmas.

The latest device of the ireulators of ad vertising cards s to place them in envelopes inscribed: "To the lady of the house-For your life do net open this before eight min utes past eight to-night." Two ladies contended for precedence at the Court of Charles V. They appealed to the monarch, who, like Solomon, awarded "Let the elder go first." Such a dispute was never known afterwards. Married life must be pretty rough. Jen nie June, who has been in the matrimonial state along time, says : "The man and wo man deserve a golden crown who have borne the storms and sunshine of life together for fifty years." The Parisian ladies have adopted a fash ion which may well be commended to their sisters in this country. In sending out cards for social gatherings they add thesig nificant words, "politics prohibited,".as an intimation that the drawing room is not to be turned into a debating hall or legisla tive chamber. French statistics show that woman is six times less criminal against person, four times less criminal against property, and twice less hardened a criminal than man. The record (recently published) also proves that maternity is a better shield against bad life than paternity. Of 1,000 female criminals 261 are mothers, and of 1,000 male criminals 824 are fathers. The Mammoth Tunnel. There is a little bit of comfort, amidst the interminable batches of warlike news from Europe, in reading a dispatch speak- o ing of a peaceful and civilizing work. Preliminary work on the Channel tunnel, to connect England and France, commenced, at once upon the formation of the tempo rary Experimental Company, we mentioned some time ago. That work was begun at Langatte, and shafts have been sunk to a longitudinal gallery 3,270 feet long will be made in the chalk, and it this is muccessful, and if nothing indicates impracticability of the project, the tunnel will be definitely commenced. It is,of course, impossible to definitely pronounce upon the practica bility of the scheme of Mr. Tome De Gamon the French engineer, whose plans are about to be executed; but it can be sa that they have been' pronounced scien tifically good, and it is a pitythat the recent death of their author should deprive him of the honor and profits which the probable success of his plans would have conferred upon him. When. the tunnel shall have been out the horrors of the "Middle Passage," as it is called, between France and England will m avoided by the three hundred thousand plassgers now yearly passing between the two countries and whose number will be co.sidasably enlarged when travelling'will be done all through by rail. Now the honors of the "Middle Pssage " are ihevitable, on account of the ontinually agitated condi tion of the hannel's waves sad at the small steamers in use, owing to the French harbors only admitting these long, narrow, and small vessels.
