Although it lights the frenzied eyes With pleasure for a minute, Yet where the frenzied poison lies, An age of woe is in it. Push back the bowl! the ruby wine Is but a treacherous snare For serpents round the goblet twine, An'I leave their poison there, A blaze of rapturous joy ma}' seem To issue from the cup Tou bask a moment in the gleam, Then drink destruction up.

Presidential question, and in reply to Mr. Curry, of Alabama, in the House There were traits of character de veloped in Judge Douglas during that contest—now that the controversy is forever ended—which give him new claims on the hearts and aifections of the people, and which inspire his friends with a confidence in his hon esty and integrity greater than all the acts of the st of his life beside. In 1857, when the Lecompton controver sy arose, the nomination of Judge Douglas, at the expiration of Mr. Bu chanan's term, was :i fact that seemed to admit of no contest. The Presi dential mantle was ready to fall upon upon his shoulders. When that ques tion arose, he found arrayed on onee side of it the southern Democracy, with whom he had done battle in sothe many years of the past he found an administration in the zenith of its power, with all its patronage and inheads mietice ready to strike him down if he dared to resist he saw the bright prize of the Presidency, which before seemed so near, ready to be forever withdrawn from him, unless he would sacrifice his honor and prove recreant to the high principles of his life, yet he never hesitated nor faltered for a moment. He displayed no wavering nor time-serving. He knew well the fearful nature ot the contest in which he was about to engage yet, on the very day on which the President sent his message to the Senate, and before the sounds of the clerk's voice had died away in the Senate chamber, he arose and entered his manly, bold and decided protest agaiust it Throw aside your political prejudices cease to remember your Lecompton partner ship, and behold and admire the sub limity of moral heroism in the man. We had known and loved him be fore. But then we saw indeed that he was one of "nature's noblemen"—a hero from the hand of God." We knew that for seventeen years he had originated the political issues on which parties divided and Presidents made we knew that in every contest he had led our forces to battle, and wou our proudest victories we had seen his firmness of soul when he was burned in effigy in Boston, and when he was insulted by a mob in Chicago, because he advocated the passage of the fugi tive. slave law we. had been, lost in.

Like every great, intelligent patriot and statesman, lie has legisla ted for the nation, and not for particu lar sections. He loved Illinois much but he has loved America more.

Upon the cross was repre sented a human figure bearing the head of an ass. Beneath the individ ual at prayer, was inscribed, "Alexan der adores God." Satisfactory evi dence refers the date of this represen tation to the reign of Septimus Siverus, at whose court were numerous Chris tians. It was no doubt intended as a burlesque on their worship. It was current belief at that penod, that the Chicago had passed resolutions de nouncing him as a recreant and un faithful representative, and the fugi tive slave law as unconstitutional and tyranical, when he boldly demanded a hearing, and invited his assailants to meet him in discussion in that infuria ted city we had never ceased to won der at the matchless power of reason ing which enabled Mm to convince, not only Chicago, but the nation, that the fugitive slave law was not only constitutional, but iust and proper* we knew that when he spoke, thous and* filled the galleries and crowded the avenues to the capital, and that even the ladies, in their eagerness to hear the winged words" as they tell from his lips, invaded the Senate cham ber and drove the gallant Senators from their seats we knew that when he spoke all men were silent we knew that when he arose his enemies trem bled, for they knew he was covered all over in impenetrable armor, and that his battle axe would strike down the greatest of his foes: we knew that he was the king of the Senate, and the greatest living debater we knew that then, as now, when the Demo cratic party was assailed, his shield always was interposed to receive the blow but we did not know that he would sacrifice the brightest hopes of his life, rather than desert a principle that he would rather be right than to be President!

Mr. Jones, pastor of the Zion So ciety at Winsor, and the Rev. Mr. Bo ler, of Philadelphia, a distinguished colored divine, who had come all the way from the Quaker City to attend the Convention. The Rev. Mr. Jones "sailed in" unexpectedly, and deliver ed a scientific "one, two" on Rev. Boler's nose, bringing the claret. The Rev. Boler retaliated by getting in a stunner on the Rev. Jones's bread basket, which the Convention now deeply interested, pronounced foul.— Loud cries of "But him Jones, but him," emanated from the audience, acting upon which the Rev. Jones doubled up and planted the top of hisof skull in the Rev. Boler's abdomen with fearful effect. The downfall of Philadelphia caused a shout of triumph from the spectators, which was cut short by an artful dodge on the part of the Rev. Boler, who shut himself up like a jack knife, and opened with such velocity that the collision tripped up the Rev. Jones and brought him down, where, with his head "in chancery,' took a healthy pummelling. They were finally pulled apart by some of sisters and turned out, after which they procured clubs and waged an un compromising warfare until both their were seriously damaged. They were then arested by a police officer and locked up for trial. The fight between the reverend gentlemen ex cited so much debate that the conven tion was forgotten, and the discussion turned upon them rits of the combat ants. The general oppinion was in fav or of the Rev.Jones, as a home cham pion, the sentiment being decidedly averse to allowing Philadelphia dar kies to come out aud take on airs over the aborigines. A majority of thein sisters sided with "de gemman from Fillimadelfy," on account of his wear ing a white hat, and being withal, rather a good looking darkey but they were indignantly frowned down.— Some of the knowing ones went so far as to intimate(that the good clothes he wore were apart of the proceeds of some $700 which he had collected for the Abolition cause and appropria ted to his own benefit. This may have been the cause of the fight, which ac tually occured as descrbed, and which promises to create no little disturbance in the church before the matter is set tled.—Boston Post. INTERESTING DISCOVERT AT ROME. —A letter from Lewis Cass, Jr., at Rome, states in the course of excava tions on the Palatin, where stood the House of Gold of the Caesars, a room was exposed, on the walls of which Christians worshipped a divinity whose bead was similar to that of an aw. We have seen no stronger indica tion of the change in public senti ment than in the following from the New York Times. Western Repub licans will do well to abandon their heresies at once, or they will find themselees outside the Republican camp: E E I A N A O Judge Collamer, of Vermont, made a very able speech upon the Slavery question, in the Senate of the United States, a few days since. It waspapers marked by historical research, logical ability and excellent temper. In the course of it he said that the Republi can Party propose to restore the Mis souri Compromise line. What," said he, is the proposition of the Republican Party? Nothing more, nothing less than to restore that line." We doubt very much whether upon this point he spoke the general senti ment of the Republican Party. It unquestionably the repeal of that which called the Repub lican Party into existence they re sisted the effort to blot it out, but itMassachusetts does not fellow that they would favor its restoration. It is not easy to see what the North has to gain by restoring a line which excluded them from a very large por tion of the Territory of the Union, and admitted them only to a section which they have succeeded in occu pying in spite of its repeal. The Mis sousi Compromise excluded slavery from all the region north of the par allel 36 deg. 30 min., and admitted it, by implication at least, into all the re gion south of that line. It was re pealed in order to permit slavery to enter the northern section but that object was foiled by the resolute resist of the people themselves. Kan sas has been secured to freedom and slavery can never be carried into the region lying west and north ol it, sim ply because it cannot traverse a Free State. The Free States, therefore, stand just as well now as they could have done under the Missouri Com promise, with the added advantage of being allowed to contest possession of the region south of the Compromise line. It is scarcely probable that, un der these circumstances, the Republi cans will insist, upon its restoration. Undoubtedly the main object of the Republican Party will continue to be to prevent the extension of Slavery into a new Territory but they will not be restricted in this endeavor here after, as they have been hitherto, to that portion of it north of the old Compromise line. They will carry the controversy into every Territory the United States,—and in nearly all of them with reasonable prospects of success. Whether they will insist that Congress shall pass a law prohib iting Slavery in the Territories may be doubtful. The great mass of the par ty hold to the abstract right of Con gress to enact such a prohibition, in spite of the opinions of members of tne Supreme Court and there are many in its ranks who seem disposed to insist upon its exercise. But the* general conviction seems to be that no such action of Congress will be neces sary and the most eminent and influ ential of the Republican leaders are inclined neither to ask nor permit any further legislation upon this subject. They rest with full confidence upon the spirit and sentiment of the setlers, feeling quite certain that in any Terri tory which may be settled by emigra tion, the interest of the inhabitants will decide the question in favor of freedom. While they will resist, therefore, any attempt of the South to pass laws for the protection of Slavery the Territories, they will ask none for its prohibition. Whatever party may be in the as cendant, therefore, it seems altogether probable that the principle—or at allagain.' events the practice—of popular sov ereignty, will practically settle the question of Slavery in the Territories. The refinements of constitutional law will have but little influence on the subject. Whatever lawyers may ar gue, or courts decide, it will after all remain for the people of the Territo ries to say for themselves whether Slavery shall, or shall not, find afoot hold upon their soil. A GOOD ONE. The following is said to have occur ed at New Orleans,during the invasion of the British. After the battle of the 23 December, 1814, in which both armies received nearly the same injury, a subaltern British officer was sent to the American line with a flag of truce. Being detained a little, he began to converse with a corporal in our service, respecting the probable events there. He stated it was folly for the Ameri can to resist any longer, as they must eventually be beaten—that the troops opposed to them were the flower of tne British army, who had vanquished the best veterans on the continent of Europe, and were commanded by Lord Packenham, Lord Picton, Lord Coch ran, Lord Kean, and many others of the ablest Generals in Europe." To this the corporal replied indignantly, "on our side we have the Lord God Almighty, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the hero*Andrew Jackson, and I'll be if we ean't whip youv" WHOLE NUMBER 194. "A E I We have often heard, says the North Iowa Times, persons crying out against the great sin of slavery, the enormity of the crimes attendtan upon it, and the want of feeling of theassociations, slaveholder. We hardly ever pay much attention to such remarks, be cause we know from the tenor of them that persons making them know no thing of the real condition of the slave only as they read it in the Opposition of the North. There are nu merous instances which we are person ally cognized of, where people raised in the North, taught to look upon slavery as greatest of all sins, and the negro as ao equal who was held un der the most tyrannical laws, have gone South, and after a few months residence have turned to be the most zealous supporters of the 'peculiar in stitution if we mistake not, some of the present prominent Southern states men are Northern bom. It is the truth, there is a very great difference, in the slavery heard of in and the slavery seen in Virginia—the negro you hear of as being held in bondage and the negro youflnd HO. R. H. dana. of Boston, an out-and-out Abolitionist, has been South, and he describes his en slaved colored brethern in the follow ing beautifully descriptive and very truthful language: The negro among negroes is a course, grinning, flat-footed, thick-skull ed creature, ugly as a Calioan, lazy as the laziest of brutes chiefly ambitious to be of no use to any one in the world. View him as you will, his stock in trade is small, has but the tangible instinct of all creatures—love of life, of ease and of offspring. For all else he must go to school to the white race and his discipline must be long and laborious. Nassua, and all that we saw of it, sug gested to us the unwelcome question, whether compulsory labor be not bet ter than none. HEARING WITH THE TEETH —Lay a watch upon a table, glass side down ward, then stand so far from it that you cannot in any ordinary way hear the ticking. Now place one end of a small stick, say about six feet long, upon the back of the watch, and grip the teeth to the other, and with the finger close each ear to exclude all external noise the beat of the watch will then be as audible as if placed against the car. All other sounds can be conveyed in the same manner, no matter how long the stick be for in stance, if one end be put upon a piano forte in a sitting-room fronting a gar den, and the stick be thirty feet long, extending outside the window on to a lawn, if the instrument be ever so lightly played, the tune will be instant ly distinguished by any person apply ing the teeth to the opposite end of the stick. Again, if a light bar of iron, or any other metal, be suspended by a thick string held between the teeth, and then struck with any hard substance, the sound will aqpear fresh er than by hearing with the ears.— Presbyterian. 11 11 1 HABITS OF OBSERVATION.—" My mother taught me at an early age," said Miss Hunt, dryly, "to observe everything. So that now I never go into a church or room, or pantry, with out seeing everything at a glance—and remembering it too. It is a faculty that may be acquired and therefore, should be. This was the way in which Robert Houdin taught his son to ex hibit what passed for second sight.— He used to take his child up to a shop window—the next minute take him away. Now, Robert, what do you see Two work-baskets, ten pen wipers, six whirligigs.' No, you did n't.' «Yes I did.' *Then go back The boy, by cultivating this faculty had become quicker than his father. He took in at a glance, the whole contents of the shop, and appli ed his habits so dexterously before a crowded audience, that things which they did not believe he saw, or had seen, he described accurately. The consequence was that his father realiz ed immense profits." ANTIQUATED LOVERS.—The duke ot Marlborough, after he had counted up the octogenarian calender, had not forgotten that there was a countess of Ormond Richlieu, at the age ot 67some though Bulwer says the profligate car dinal died at eighty-and-nfty—had his Althea de Melino and Ninon de L'Enclos, after she had passed the age of ninety, seduced and conquered the young Marquis of Languedoc, who had not counted off two-and-twenty sum mers!

LEAVING HOME I conceive no picture more interest' ing than one which might be drawn from a young man leavitfg the home of his childhood, the scene of his early to try his fortune in a dis tant country, setting out aloneforthe forest." A father on the decline, the down-hill of life, gives his parting blessing, invoking the best gifts of heaven to rest on his beloved offspring, and to crown all his efforts with com plete success tears gush from his eyes and words are forbid utterance. A kind, and affectionatel mother, calling' after him, as he is departing from the parental abode, and with all the dan gers to which he is about to be ex posed rushing into and pressing upon her mind she says—" Go, my son—re member that there is a right and a wrong way." Her advice is brief.- Language is inadequate to the expres sion of the feelirtgs that there crowd on the mind of a virtuous child. Ev ery reader has a case of this kind, and many have been the subject of one in some respects similar. Here may found eloquence more touching to him to whom it is delivered, than even tha orations of Cicero or Demosthenes. HYMEN.—Hymen was a a beautiful youth of Athens, who for the love of a young uirgin, disguised himself and assisted at the Elusinian rites, and at this time, he, together with his beloved and divers other young ladies of that city, was surprised and carried off by pirates who supposed him 10 be what he appeared, lodged him with his mis tress. In the dead of night, wheh' the robbers were all asleep, he arose and cut their throats. Thence making hasty way back to Athens, he bar gained with the parents that he would restore to them their daughter and a!! her companions, if they would con sent to their marriage: which proving very happy, it became the custom to invoke the name of Hymen at all nup^ tials. ESf^The King of Denmark, having solaced himself with the company of rt pretty milliner whom he has married morganatically, which means over the left, all the highborn ladies, who ap pear low bred, cut the said ex-milli ner. They are not shocked at the ir regularity of the connection, but by the circumstance that the lady is not of noble birth. She has invaded their privileges. They think there is some thing rotten in the State of Denmark, Their opinion is much like that of the English lady, who, hearing another lady censured for insonstaney, incon tinetly exclaimed, "I do assure you she never committed herself with any body out of the peerage OCTThe following story gives a live ly idea of how the Russians govern Poland. A Jew meta Cossack in the forest, and the latter robbed him of his horse. On returning to the town', he lodged a complaint with the major in command, who was (with what truth we shall see) reported to be a most rigorous disciplinarian. The Cossacks were paraded, the robber was pointed out, when, with the utmost effrontery, he remarked that he had found the horse. "How replied the Jew. «*I was upon his track "Yes," retorted the Cossack, "I found you, too but having no use for a Jew, I did not keep you." The excuse was admitted, and the poor Israelite was dismissed minus his steed. OCT A little girl, not six years of aire screamed out to her little brother, who was playing in the mud, "Bob yon good-fbr-nothng little scamp, come right into the house this minute, or I will whip you till the skin comes off." "Why Angelina Angelina, dear, what do you mean where did you learn such talk exclaimed the mortified mother' who stood talking with a friend. Angelina's childish reply was a good commentary upon this manner of speaking to children Why, moth er you see we are playing, and he's my little boy, and I am scolding him just as you did me this morning that is all." S3T*The European papers make ot the mfost amusing blunders in reference to* American affairs. The Paris Journal Debates in giving an ac count of the- attempts to organize the American Congress, makes the follow ing amusing blunder: "Monsieur Gilsner received 30 votes, and Mon sieur Scattering 9.
