Of all the amusements of the mind, From logio down to fishing, There is not one that you can find So very cheap as "wishing!" A very choice diversion too, If we but rightly use it, And no', as we are apt to do, Pervert it and abuse it. I wish—a common wish indeed— My purse was somewhat falter, That I mignt cheer (he child of need, And not my pride to fiaiter. That I mighi make oppression reel As only gold can ti.ake it, And break the tyrant's rod of steel As only gold can break it I I wish—that sympathy and love, And every human pasaion Ust has ire origin above, •Would come and keep in faahton; And scorn, and jealousy, and hate, And every base emotion, j Ware buried fifty fathoms deep Beneath the waves of ocean. t Wish—that friends were always true, And motives lway pure; I wish the good were not so lew, I wish the bad were fewer; t wish that persons ne'er fnrgot To heed their pious teaching, I wish that p'articing was not So very different from preaching. I wish—that modern worth might he Appraised with truth end candor; I wish that innocence were tree From treachery and slander; I with thai men their vows would mind, That women ne'er were rovers; ! wish that wives were always kind, And husbands always loveis. I wish—in fine—thai joy and mirth, And every good ideal May come erewhile throughout the earth, And be the glorious real; Till God shall every creature bless, Willi his suprsmest blessing, And hope be lost iu happinrss, And wishing be possessing. musk; in schools. At the recent meeting of the Board of Ed ucation of New York city, William Cullen Bryant, of the New York Evening Tost made a capital speech upon Ihe subject of "Music in Schools," from which we make the fol lowing extract: "Iu jnakittg music a branch of common education, we give u new attraction to our common schools. Music is not merely a •tudy, it ie an entertainment; wherever there Is music (here is a crowd of listeners. We complain that our common schools are not attended as they should be. What i to be done? Shall we compel the attendance of children? Rather let us, if we can, so or dor things that children shall attend volunta rily shall be eager to crowd lo the schools; and for this purpose nothinir can be more effectual, it seems to me, than the art to which the ancients ascribed such power that, according to the fables of their poets, it drew the very stones of the earth from tbsir beds, and piled them in a wall around tbe city ot Thebes. "It should be considered, moreover, that reusio in schools is useful as an incentive to •tody. After a weary hour of poring over books, with perhaps tome discouragement on the part of the learner; if not despsir at the hardness of his task, a song puts bim Into a more cheerful and Itopelul mood; tbe play of the lungi freshens the circulation of tbe blood; and he tits down again to bis task in better spirits, end will, an invigorat ed mind. Almost all occupations are obeer ad and lighted by maaio. "T remember once being in a tobacco manufactory iu Virginia, whew the work waa performed by slaves, who enlivened their tasks with outbursts of psalmody. "We encourage their singing," said one of the proprietors, 'they work for it.' Sail ors pull more vigorous at the rope for their 'Yo, beave ho!' which is a kind of song. I have beard the vine dressers in Tuscany, ott tha hill aides, responding to each other in aongs, with which the whole region tesound eJ, and wbieh turned then hard day's woik Into a pastime. Tut LARVEST ROOM. The largest room in Ike world •• at St. Petersburg, Russia, ami is 880 feet in breadth. By daylight it is assd for military displays, and a batullion can conveniently manmuver in it. In the even< log it is ollen converted into a vast ball room, when it is warmed by 16 prodigious stoves, and 26,000 wax tapers are required to light it properly, The roof of this structure is a single awh of iron, the bars alone on whioh It rerta weighing 12,930 lbs. The most won derful part of the room is, that there is uot a single pillar or aich to obstruct the view. OT At the last Court Ball in Paris, the Jewels of the Empress Eugenia were ettima tad at four million of francs, and tha floun eas of Alcona laee which coveted the lilac aubt robe of her majesty cost six hundred thousand—the dress and jawels thus amount ing atmost million of dollars. BLOOMSBURG. COLUMBIA COUNTY. PA.. WEDNESDAY. APRIL 1. 1857. 1,1 I K IN PARIS. A lively, gossipping Parie correspondent of tbt Boston Post writes on the 19th ult. a* fol low* : " Everybody here is suffering from the grippe, which ia a running nose, a barking ' cough, and rheumatic peins combined, oeca | stoned by the detestable damp weather that until tl last few daye hat hung over Pari* like a wet blanket, muddying its etreeis, darkening its sky, and produuing a suicidal state of things by no means uncommon at this season of the yesr. Unable to contend against the morbid tendencies of a human system under the influences- of a French February, a young man recently entered a hardware shop and asked to look at some Ca talan knives—Verger stabbed the Archbishop with a Catalan knife, and since then they have been in great demand—a request which the shopkeeper cheerfully granted. Selecting ono of the longest, moat pointed, and sharp est, tbe melancholy youth plunged it into his left breast, and immediately expired. At the Bois de Boulogne yesterday the body of a well dressed individual was discovered wiih the head perforated by a pistol ball. He had bequeathed, by meant of a written paper found upon him, his comforter to the first comer after his death as a token of affection. A sergeant deville was the happy reoipientof the dead man's worsted ! " But sickness and death cannot atop the whirl of pleaaure which monotonously goea on in Pari* all tho winter through. Balls and parties, and tioieea, and dancing, gambling, jand supper* keep up a jolly carnival for all who have money and health sufficient lo en joy them. Never, they say, was Paris so gay; never so many strangers in the shape of spies, Russian princes and Wallachin prin cesses, and entertainments are constantly be ing given and money spent like water in all kind* of luxury, "s if in revenge for the two previous years of economy and good hour* imposed by circumstances over which only Providence anil Louis Napoleon had control. "The masked balls at the opera were nev er meriier, and Sirausa'e hundred musioiana never notsior than thie year. All the boxes are engaged weeks previous—rnnre duchess es even than usuul have been present, and the costumes decidedly evinced somo inge nuity, fancy, and novelty for lite first time to my knowledge, for three years. To vary the entertainment, a different style of a ball has been given lor the pittance ot twenty francs per head. The youngest, prettiest and most talented of the corpa-'Je-da'.let danoed quadrilles, polka cotillions, moztikars, the lancier, &0., for the amusement of a house crowded with black Itala, while cravats, and black dominoes. All the mesdemoisolls of the rampe were in elegant evening toilettes —flowers and diamond* and precious stones in the hair; expensive pocket handkerchiefs and skirts without number. There was pretty little Schlosser, whose eyes ero as black us her skin is while ; anil Troisvalets, with a string of pearls about her neck worth twenty thousand francs; and Poussin, whom an ami able youth had made rich by ruining him self; and a charming blonde named Mercier, whom one of the Flounds is protecting , and Marquei, tall and hantlaome, but giaceful as an elephant; and Nathan, who is a Jewess, and has hail seven children, and Carabin, who hasn't had any, and a host of others whom you don't care to hear enumerated, but all pretty, graceful, and elegantly attired.— They danced where ordinarily are the orches tra seats, in a square enclosed by a light iron fence, ornamented by pots of flowers and sparkled artistically. The people in the box es look on and applaud, and enjoyed the sight until nearly 5 o'clock in the morning, and then retired to supper, and, subsequently, hilarity. The cafes blazed with light until daylight, and long after honest artisans were at their daily toil a dissipated crowd were re velling and lioting to their own satisfaction and the infinite pleasure of the restaurant keepers, to whom masked baits are as Manna 6eni from Heaven." The Envious Man. The envious man is a pain upon all occa sions which ought to give him pleasure.— The relish of his life is inverted, and the ob jects which administer the highest satisfaction to those who are exempt from this passion, gives the quickest pangs to persons who are subject to it. All the perfections of lhair fel low creatures are odioas. Youth, beauty, valor, and wisdom, are provocations of their pleasure. What a wretched and apostate state is this: to be offended with excellence, and to hate a man because we approve him ! The condition of the envious man is most emphatioslly miserable; he is not capable of rejoicing in another's merit or success, but lives in Ihe world wherein all mankind are in a plot against his quiet, by studying their own happiness and advantage. TUB VALUE or REVIEWISO Lire.—One of the most desirable and imperfect surveys we can take ia to review our past lives, and re turning seasons, natal days, wedding days, or new year days, are useful in calling us to reflection—in leading us to seek the direc tions of Providenoe—-in stimulating us to the correction of former errors, and to avow Iresh recollections that our dependence on the care and benediction of heaven may be more sim ple, constant, and entire. CTThe lost blaek boy of Roohester, Chas. Grsnby, who was thought to be in slavery, and for whom ao much noise has been made and expense inourred, bat at length been found, safe in a state of freedom. He is married, and it at wotk in a distillery at Peorin. Tbe Police Outdone by I Souther* Lady. A few daye tincn some unknown person* entered fashionable boarding house, near Summer street, kepi by Mie. M., making assessments of each articles as they liked beet, and left the place unseen and unharm ed. Among the boarders whose goods and chattels were thus unceremoniously taken away, was Miss H., a fair daughter of the Sunny South, who happened to be spending the winter in the City of Notions. Iler loss consisted of a beautiful velvet hat. As soon as the theft was discovered the police were consulted, and every thing done to remove the mystery, but all to no purpose. As Miss H. was walking Washington St. ; one of the pleasantest daye last week, im agine her surprise in passing a large and masculine looking woman, dressed in the height of fushion, with hoops and crinoline, and having on her hand the very identical velvet hat which the had lost. What was to be dons t What could be done t Every step was taking the bonnet farther ficm us owner, who was alone and a stranger in the city. It did not lake her long to deoide. She started in the same direction, and was soon alongside of the velvet hat. "Where do you reside, madam V "In - Court,'" was the reply. "Ato you going home?" "I am." "Go on, and don't let me hinder you." And onwarJ they walked, now to the right and now to the left. At length they entered a dark alley, and alter passing several die* mat abodes they halted at the door. ''Do you hvo here ?'' "I do—upon the second floor." "Go up then, for I have business with you." They enterod. After going up two flights of stairs they reached a room in which they found tivo women. They entered the room, and here our heroine made known her busi ness. Posting herself beside the door, with a calm but defiant look, she demanded ol the woman to know whero sho obtained the velvet hot, tho shawl, and the basque upon her person. "I bought them," was the reply. "No, you did nol; they were stolen, and now take them off immediately." Hid a bomshell exploded in the room, the confusion could nol Ituve boen greater. But great as it wa*, it did not inlimidalo the own er of Ihe velvei hat in the least degree. It only changed the happy and (uoiuai'ing look of a most beautiful face to the uncon quered look of a Cromwell. "Now he quiet and own up, and bring forward Ihe stolen goods, for it will be belter for you. Now I have found the goods, and the thief, 110 doubt, I am going for an officer. See that none of you leave the room or dis turb an article while I am gone." While descending Ihe stairs our heroine espied a doctor on his way lo visit the sick, end asked hie assistance. "I have," said she, "found some stolen properly, and have ii secure in litie house; will you call an of ficer 10 assist me in removing it?" The doctor reajily assented, and while he souglii for policemen, she still guarded her trust. — At length Ihe doctor, with four policemen, arrived, when onr heroine transferred the custody of both persona and property to the officers of the law. The remainder of the stolen propeity was soon found, and the la dy relieved of her borrowed plumage was provided with rooma iu ihe Cambridge street jail, where aha still remains, waiting the sen tence of the law.— Honton Journal. Crinoline in Kbytne. A lady with a crinoline was walking down (he street—her feaihers fluttered in ihe air— -1 her hoops stuck out a feet. She walked the | earth as if she fell ol it no part, and proudly I did she sail along for pride waa in her heart. She did not see a curly dog which walked close by her side, all save the bushy tail ol which her crinoline did bide. His tail Ihe dog wilb pleasure shook—it fluttered in the wiud, and from the lady's crinoline stuck out a foot behind. A crowd the tail soon did espy, aa it waved to and fro. and like a ruddsrseem ed to steer which way the maid should go. The curly dog right pleasrd was he such quarters be had got, and walked beside the lady in a kind of doggish trot. Each step the lady now did take, served to increase her train, while those who followed in the wake roared out with might and main. Some held their sides and laughed so hard, and many fairly cried, and many even stilt confess that day they'd "like to died." But still the lady sailed along, in crinoline and pride, unmind ful of the crowd behind or dog close by her side. But soon another dog espied the tail which fluttered free—it so provoked his dog gish ire he could uol let it be—but witb a deep ferocious growl, for bttile straight he weut, nod 'neath Ihe lady's crinoline both dogs were quickly pent. They fought, 'tis ■aid, one hour or more, the lady nothing knew, but with her bead erect sailed 011 and did her way pursue. Some say the never would have known al all about the tigbt, had not one dog mistook and gave her "limb" an awful bite. But since that day I've beard it atid, the lady ne'er was eeatt upon the street with ao much pride—iud seek a crinoline. EWULAMD.— It is assumed by British statis ticians, that the yearly consumption of to bacco in Great Britain and Ireland aroounta to 26,000 tons, about one half of which, it is snpposed, is smuggled, owing to the exces sive duties (upwards of 1000 per cent.) levied on the ante's under the tariff system of lhal kingdom. The quantity of cigars and snutf imported does not exceed two o| three hun dred weight per annum. Trtlfti and Right God tad r Country. Duelling iu Germany among the Mudcniv. Speaking of Duels, let me mention that ihey are the institution ol Jena. Duels, du als, every day duela, and scarcely a student who does not bear on hi* face one or more tremendous soars, aa trophies of the conflicts in which he has been engaged. Duelling, at it is carried on here, ia, in my opinion, a very foolish way of pasting tbe time. Asso ciations are formed merely for the purpose ol fighting, and every member it bound to fight at l*u*t one duel. Intervals of intoxication at beer drinking bouts are taken advantage of, to insult each other, and any harmless, idle word is considered sufficient provocation (or e duel. The fights are in themselves harm less, as a general thing although frequently a blow ia received that disfigures, if it does not raaitr. for life. A* I have already been pres ent at these conflicts, perhaps you might contidor a brief description of oue, interest ing. There ware three duals to be (ought in one morning, end the hour of seven ha.l been ap pointed as the time when the police would be least likely to intetlere with the sport. A friend who knew "the ropes" called to me and we went together across the little river Seal to the Gastliaus, in which is the room where all these delicate affairs come oil.— The house is just at the end of the bridge, and the room is so situated that the guard, who is always stationed at the window, can see everybody who comes out of the Jena. Duelling being very strictly forbidden by the Uuiversity regulations, these precautions are of courso necessary. As we entered the room, the combatants were just pieparing for the encounter. The apartment was filled with students smoking their long stemmed pipes, and seated on the benches ranged around tho walls. Taking a eeut myself, 1 had an op portunity of seeing the operation of dressing for the fight, Tho legs and body arc covered with a largo shield of padded buckskin. The right arm is bound round with cloths of different colors to a great thickness, the throat is eocurely protected by a high padded collar and the duelling caps have very wide brims coining over their "yes, so that the face and chest aro the only vulnerable parts ol the body. It is indeed st the face and head that the blows are aimed. The prepar ations being completed, the umpire chosen by the combatants called out, and tbey took their respective places opposite to each other, each attended by two seconds, one to support the sword-arm during tho pauses and inter vats of rem, wUivh oo'.t* tieqnsnt, and , the other also armed and promoted with a huge padded apron, to stay the fight the mo ment his principal's sword is bent, or a foul blow is struck. "Cross the swords !" cried oue ol the seconds. "They are crossed," answered the other. "On then!" and at it they went, hewing and hacking, and cutting and slashing at each other's heads just be cause, somo evenings previous, one of them had expressed a distaste of the beer, which the other was praising. Fifteen minotes is the lime allowed for each of these battles, but long before that time was expired, one of tbe duellists had re ceived seveial cuts, one on tbe ear, and two quite large wounds on the lop of the head, his antagonist's ewotd having cut entirely through the duelling cap. At length he re ceived another wound on the head, cutting into the bone of oue of bis fingers. The bat tle theu necessarily terminated. The wound ed person with his face and body dripping with blood, turned around faintly to his sec onds, who undressed him snd handed liirn over to a medical student, who shaved off his hair, sewed up bis wounds and sent him off rejoicing. In three or foor days time, however, he was well again. Tbe other du ellist had not received a scratch. Two more duels were fought then, but they terminated more happily, the time allotted to each hav ing expired before any injuries were receiveJ. Such is an imperfect description of the duel ling, which, with walking, talking, smoking and beer drinking is the chief occupation oi tbe students in Jena. Of course you will un derstand me to mean the wilder class of s:u- dent* only, for I hive become acquainted with uiany who deprecate the institution ol duelling, and who dislike it, perhaps as much as I do myself.— Tr'cElrath t Letters from Ger many. SECRET STABS. There it nothing that more be:ray a base, ungenerous apirit than the giving of secret slabs to a man's reputation; lan poena and satires, that are written witbwii and spirit are like poisoned darts, which not cudy indict a wound, but make it incurable. For ibis rea son we are much troubled wber. we see the talents of humor and ridicule in the possess ion of an ill-natured man. Tbif cannot be a greater gratification to a barbi-ooa and in human wit, than to stir opsorr-w in thabean ol a private person, to raise uneaines among near relations, and to expose whole families to derision, at the same time ;.-at he remains unseen and undiscovered.
