B7 MARY LINCOLN CLINTON. The Autumn days have come again The mournful Autumn days And summer birds in brighter skies Are warbling tweeter lays. The forrest walks are lonely now, Each note of joy ia hushed, And the old trees' faded robes are heaped - W herd erst the streamlet gushed. Farewell to summer's golden hours, Andsummer birds farewell! . Tour sunshine and your melody Have chained me like a spell. But welcome to thee. Autumn time - Your north wind sweepeth drear, ' But it hath music in its voice My heart keeps still to hear. I love its wild and plaintive strain I love thee. Autumn time I'm happier in thy saddened hoar . . Than ia the summer's prime. The summer of my life has fled Those wild and halcyon days And faintly through the gathering clouds Their wanning sunlight plays: The golden dreams of girlhood's hoars, ' With girlhood's hours have flown, And the siren voice that held me there ' Hath lost its music tone. . Farewell to girlhood's golden hours, And girlhood's dreams farewell! The beauty of yonr sunny time Will haunt me like a spell. . illiacellantous. SIRS. SCRUGGINS MOVES AMONG THE "UPPER TEN," AND IS INVIT ED TO A "BORRT." 'I s'pose, Mrs. Jones.' said Mrs. Scrugorins, tbe other evening, 'you Learn as how an old bach'ler uncle of mine died off not long ago, and lett me all bis ettecks. 1 was very sorry to hear that he'd died; but then it was acon solin' thing to one with grateful affliction, and there s notbin makes people reverence the memory of them thats cone, so much as the idea that they have left you somethin' to re member 'em by. 1 never seed my uncle but wunst, and tben be didn't take much notice of me and I don't blame him now when I cum to think what a wild, sausy minx I was in my younger days. But he must have been a dear good soul, or he wouln t have thought of his niece way out bere in bent Louis, and left her all his effecks. I intend to have a grave stone built to his memory, and on it I'll have writ : reeled m memorv of her uncle by his incurable and unconsolable and affectionate niece." ... . Well, arter people heard I had some prop erty, it's wonderful how excessive popular I got all of a suddent Feminnines as didn't descend to hardly bow to me in the street, all at wunst tbey knew me so well! and shook bands so fnendiy, and wanted to know where I'd kep myself, and what I'd been doin,' and why I had't called to see them for such a dread ful long time; and all on 'em declared they thought i was livin' in tbe country, or they d have called and been right social. . Mr. Skink le in less than a week after the news was herd. told me that three middle aged bach'lers in straightened carenmstances, and four widder ers, with num'rous families had 'plied to him for to be introduced. . Tbe 'tother night I went to the concert tor sent John's uburcb, and as Mr. bkmkle and me- walked up to'ards the1 frunt I heard 'em whisperio' as I walked long "That's the rich widder; that's Mrs, Scrug gins;' and sum of the lords made pourty loud sclamations ol 'wbat a bne Jigger !' 'how ex cessively graceful she walks!' and sich like. In course 2 believed everthing they sed was all humbug; but Mr. Skinkle sed he'd no doubt but that sum on 'em was in earnest 'cause they was lookin' at me through gold specs. . It's strange wonderful strange bow different a person is treated when they're poor ! and when they'rs' rich. Even Mr. Skinkle has got more perliter, and I believe the man's afeard I'll bite bim, he keeps at sich a very respectable distance; and wben 1 want any thing done he's in sich a terrificial hurry to be of sarvice that two to one he dont do it right. or spiles all in tryin' to do it too welL the 'tother evenin' ses 1 to him, 'Mr. Skinkle will you jiststep up stairs and bring I "Sartainly ses he, and away he went ; and arter he'd got up stairs, be bad to come down again, oes he ; 'What as it Mrs. Scruggins, you'd be pleased to have ?' 'Fiddlestick ses I, and would you b'lieve it the man went up stairs in my bedroom to hunt up a fiddlestick ! I gave him A piece of my mind when he cum down. 'It hadn't been more'n ten days arter peo ple got wind of my bein' a woman of proper ty, afore I'd receipted a half a dozen inverta Uons to drop in at Missus so-and-so's, or to cum and spend a quiet evenin' at Missus sich-a-one's. Then, last week, I got a billet-dux from Mrs. Wholesale Drygood, invitin' me and my friend Mr. Skinkle to a sorry, at their house. 1 didn't care much about mixin' in kumpany, but I'd heard people talk so much about sor ties that I made up my mind to go, and so I told Mr. Skinkle to make the preparation, and to have a carriage in waiting- at tbe door at 8 o'clock precisely. Well, when 8 o'clock cum, I was all ready and waitin' very anxious to get off. Purty soon Mr. Skinkle and the carriage cum along, and I was never so 'stonished in my lite to see bow tbe dear man was dressed up. He'd bought himself a new hat, and a new kra vat, which was wound round and round his neck, so tight that his face was rite red, and I told him that I thought he must be in a chokin' kondishin. He wore a standin' collar, too, one side of which proped up his ear, while 'tother hid itself away under his kravat. He bought a pair of white kid gloves, which was too small, and one on em had busted open. Mr. Skinkle sed he knowe'd thy were too small when he'd got 'em, but tben tbe store-keeper had given his assurance that they'd stretch. 'And so they did stretch,' said Mr. Skinkle, 'clear open.' Well.arter kunsid'rable fixin' up, we at last got started, and when we arrived at Mrs. Drygood's house, the kumpany had just begun cumin'. Mrs. Drygood was very glad to see me she sed, and consid'nn' I'd never seen her but wunst afore, she was wonderful affectionate. Arter I tuk off my things we went into the parlor. The fust person I was introduced to was a Mrs. Broker, one of the most fashionable feminines of Sent Louis, Mrs. Drygood sed. I thought I bad seed people witii affected manners afore, but Mrs. Broker beat 'em alL She kept her eyes about half shet, so that people might ' see how long her eye-lashes was; and she was always a smilin'. so they could see her teeth and obsarve her dimples! Then she had a lack-a-Iaisy way of talkin' a die-away tone of vojee, jist for all like a long sentence was too much for her Mrs. Screwgws V ses she. 'Scruggins, ma'am,'- ses L " 'Ah ! I beg your pardon,' ses she ; 'but, Mrs. Smuggins, are you partial to sorrie ?' 1 told her this was the first sorry I'd ever been to. 'Ah, indeed !' ses she ; and then shether eyes and laughed jist enough to show her teeth. While I was lookin' round takin' obseava tions, Mrs. Drygoods cum tu'ards me with a young feminine, who was the greatest curios ity I bad ever seed. She was very tall and very slim, and her waist comprised into a won derful small circumference. Her face was dreadfully white and pale, and there wasn't any more spression in it than there is in a brick fence. She looked like she didn't care nuthin' for her. Her name was Miss Gold smith, and Mrs. Drygoods sed she was one of the fust families of V irginny. one was ortul perli te; but Mr. Skinkle sed, afterwards, that he thought she was payin her respects to my fortin not to me. Mrs. Screwgins,' ses Mrs. Broker,' 'are you acquainted with Miss Goldsmith's brother, Hector?' 'No, ses I, 'I ain't Weil, then, I'll introduce him to you;' and with that Mrs. Broker riz up very slow from her seat, and minced across the parlor, and then cum back agin, followed by a thing with enugh feair on his upper lip and head togeth er, to make a shuck mattress. But what 'ston ished me more than ennything was, the jew elry he had about him. He had a gold watch, a gold chain, a gold quizzical glass with a gold chain, four studs with green sets in his shirt buzzom, and three large gold rings on his tin ger.' Mrs. fcimuggins ses Mrs. Broker. Mrs. Scruggins, ma'am,' ses I. 'Excuse me,' ses she; 'but Mrs. Skuggins, allow me to introduct to you Mr. Hector Gold smith.' I am very happy in fowming the acquaint ance of Mrs. Sehwuggins I am indeed a- hem !' ses Mr. Hector; and with that he bowed two or thee times, and flourished his silk hand- kercheif around at a great rate. Mr. Hector was periite to me; be was vewy pawtial to widows,' he sed, 'mowe pawticulaw to them as was hansum.' I could hardly keep from lamn in the man's face ; and I was orful glad when a young feminine, in pink sack, with corkscrew curls enm, skippm' up to Mr. Hector. 'Oh ! Mr. Goldsmith,' ses she, 'where have you been V tome, we want you over yon der; and away she went followed by Mr. Jtlec tor. 'How exceedingly tasty Mr. Goldsmith does dress, says Mrs. Broker. 'Mrs. Scruggins,' ses Mr. bknnkle to me in a very excited whisper, 'Mrs. Scruggins,' do you see that feminine with the .changing silk gown, and all that fine lace round her neck ? -well it wasn't more n a montb ago since ber husband made 'signment, and now jist look now she dresses. 'Mr. Skrinkle,' ses I, 'what is a signment? 'Why, you see, ses Mr. bknnkle, 'arter a marcbant or a tradesman has been in bizziness a long time, arter he's got in debt to every body, and arter he 'cumulated a good deal of property with t'other people's money, wny, then he nnds out all at wunst, tbat be s in a failing kondishun, and that it is unpossible for him to pay his debts; so he turns over all his property to sum friend to keep for him, and then makes a "signment of all his bad debts and old ferniture over to their creditors for their satisfaction.' And then,' said I, 'I s'pose he's tried afore tbe enminus court, and sent to tbe peniten tiary?' Oh, no,' ses Mr. Skinkle ; 'quite the contrary for you'll find when a man is a swindler on a large scale when by a 'stensive opperation he pockets his thousands people look up to' him, and say he s a cute opporator in tunas; but just let a poor man, with a wife and a bouse ful of children, do ennytbing that has the least 'pearance of wrong, and how horrified every- krJ. .a mn1 l.nnr nrillin Iiav awi 4rt rnva a lriflr UVUJ 10, BUU ,J J IT 1111.1 . 1 1 V - WIS. .

While Mr. bkinkle was talkin,' '1 notused that every body was lookin' at a young femi nine, who just cum in tbe room, and I heard Mrs. Broker whisper to a Mrs. Commission, who was sittin along side of her, that it was a out raj us thing she never heard of the like afore. Mr. Hector Goldsmith was over on t'other side of tbe house, and a lot of young men and feminines was round him, and they was whisperin' very fast together, and every wunst in a while they'd look at . the young 'ooman who just cum in like they was goin' to eat her. I nidn t notice enny thing very par ticklar in the "pearance of the young feminine, they need stare at her so." 'Miss Goldsmith,' ses Mrs. Broker, ain't you goin? v . i: .y - - : . 'Of course,' ses Miss Goldsmith, 'lookin' as cold as au icicle ; 'I can't 'sociate with every body.' ' - 'I'm surprised at Mrs. Drygood for invitin' sich people, said a little primp tip feminine, whose name was Mrs. Counsellor. 'And so am I,' sed anuther who sumbody called Mrs. Attorney Atlaw. " . 'Are you goin' Miss Hardware V sed a fem inie just behind me. 'To be sure,' sed Mrs. Hardware; we and Mrs. Cull'ry, and Mrs. Grocer, and Mrs. Dr. Nostrum and the Misses Drygood, think that this aint enny place for us.' 'Mrs. Skinkle,' ses I, 'what is the matter ?' 'Why, you see, this ere is a hoetong sorry, and ther're all miffed 'cause that 'ere young feminine over yonder was invited. 'Who is she ?' ses I, 'she looks jist as much like a" lady as any one of 'em.' ' 'So she is,' sed Mr. Skinkle, 'and she's well educated, and smart as the next one ; but then her husband's nothing but a jurnyman me chanic' 'Mr. Skinkle,' ses I 'will you order the car riage!' 'You aint goin too ?' ses Mr. Skinkle. 'Yes,' ses I, putty loud, 'I'm my husband, who's ded an' gon, was notbin' but a mecha nic and this is no place for his widder ! 'Mr. Skinkle,' sed I, when we'd got safe home, 'don't you ever ax me to go to a sorry again.' .

The Post Office Department has notified tbe post masters,that nothing but U.

N. Brenneman and Andrew M. Span gler, editor of the 'Lancaster Gazette.' The balloon was permitted to raise to as great a height as the length of the rope would permit about a thousand feet A fresh breze from the south-west, accompanied with heavy rain, commenced just as the party started, render ing their trip far less pleasant than it would otherwise have been. The rain fell in torrents as the party ascend- ad, rendering lurtuer attempt unpleasant un . ,. . , .... tu i o ciock, wnen a number ot ascensions were made. Two parties of musicians enter ed the car, and while ascending and descend ing discoursed delightful music. As rapidly as circumstances permited, parties were sent aloft, until 3 o clock, at which time Mr. Wise and ladv, Miss Elizabeth Denton and Master Charles Wise, took their places in the basket and in a few moments made tbe most beauti ful ascension ever witnessed here. The bal loon rose majestically amidst the cheers of the crowd, and floated ia an easterly direction at a moderate elevation, when Mr. Wise dischar ged a quantity of ballast which caused it to rise almost perpendicularly with great rapid ity, it soon entered tbe clouds and for brief space, was hidden from the view of the spectators. The descent was beautiful beyond descrip tion and was accomplished in perfect safety about l miles east of the city.- In 40 min utes from the time of departure, the Eronaut and his family were seated in their homestead again. Cor. FhiL Ledger. Fire-Proof Cordage. In a commercial city like New York, the discovery ot any process which, by improving machinery, makes life more secure and the transportation of merchandise less hazardous, must be regarded with interest and not only this, but adopted tbe instant its merits shall be made apparent, such a discovery has, we think been made, by professor J. H. Johnson, now in this city en route for Europe. Prof. Johnson now offers to the test of the commercial inter ests of the word, specimens of cordage and wood which are incombustible ; not utterly im pervious to any and all degrees of heat for any length of time, but cordage and wood whose structure will remain as long as the iron that enters into the composition of ships and fire proof safes. 1 be terrible wrecks of the Lexington, the Atlantic, the trrimtnand a thousand other ac cidents where valuable lives have been wasted from inefficient because perishable steering apparatus,and tbe untold losses of papers from fire when their possessors depended upon 'safes' admonish every one of tbe value and tbe in terest it is in the success of such a discovery as the one now challenging the closest scrutiny. Measures have been taken to secure the ben efits of this invention to its author and we shall attempt to give some idea of the process. W e may say that tbe vegetable matter, whether of wood, hemp or cotton, is first sub mitted to a process which has the same effect upon it as is produced upon wood in a char coal pit, by covering it from the atmosphere while burning. The process, all know, produces a fuel defi cient in the most important property necessary for rapid combustion, yet capable of making a most intense heat wben burned in a position where it can absorb the oxygen withheld from it while burning in the pit This process of abstracting from vegetable nbre the element producing combustion so freely, is very simple and ebeap ;but the inventor does not stop with simply reducing the elements for combustion, but, by another and equally beautiful process, charges the fibre with elements that are utterly opposed to combustion : a substance as impen etrable to tare as iron, and at an expense tbat will allow its aplication as well to the coarsest cotton bagging as to the; wheel rope upon which so often depends a thousand lives. JNo one who has witnessed the ravages of tare can examine tbis material and notteei tbat a remedy has been found which, if it cannot place us in complete control of fire, will enable us to check its course, when, by fastening up on tbe dresses of our families and the cordage of our ships, it may rob us of all we hold dear. By this process every fathom of cord age and every yard of fabric from our looms can be made fire-proof, at a cost so trifling as to be almost below computation. As a sub stitute for the iron rudder chains, which are so inconvenient, and which steamboats refuse to adopt, this is all that could be wished and must for that purpose be universally used. Upon wood, for safes, its effects are almost fa bulous, and the fact will hardly be credited that a small turned box, filled with papers, stood the test of seven hours fire in a safe, the iron of which was either melted or burned out, leaving the wood as bright and the papers as clean as wben they came from the turner's and printer's hand. N. Y. Express. Noble Conduct. On Sunday night, two men, named Clark, and Gardiner of this city started in a small schooner from Greenwich, Conn., to come to New York. During the storm, their vessel was capsised off Eaton's Neck, L. I. The ac cident was observed by a large number of people, but so high ran the sea that none would trust themselve in the life boat except ing captain Benjamin Downing, an aged invalid of 70 years, and his son Franklin, aged 16. These two went out to the wreck and took Clark from her, and would have taken Gardi ner too, had he not trusted himself to four oars expecting to get ashore, but the wind being adverse, he drifted further out and was drown ed. The vessel was wrecked about half a mile out hut was now one-quarter of a mile further and a desperate effort was required to work the life boat ashore against the wind and sea. Clark was saved, and captain D. and his son were yesterday hard at work to help him save something trom the wreck, in which his all had been embarked and lost fN. Y. Ex. oi The Difference. Tbe Locofocos claim to be the exclusive friends of the poor man, and accuse the Whigs of being tbe exclusive friends of the rich. The difference is just this: The Locofocos love the poor so well that they would make everybodypoor, just to gratify their affections ;--The Whigs like the rich so well that they would make everybody rich, just for everybody's sake. ... ... - . 401 , - t3t In Queen's county, Ireland, there are I only 247 voters.

One, who, where'er in life her lot wasplac'd. Each station by her piety was graced. Farewell! thon dear departed, much lov'd one. Soon didst thon reach the goal thy setting son; And yet, we humbly trust, thy work was done Accomplished, whey thy early race was run. Thy bright example and thy sterling worth. Thy modest merit rarely found on earth; Thy innate kindness and thy sincere love, Frepar'd thee for that blest abode above! Where we do hope thou from thy grave didst rise. Escorted to a mansion in the skies. Thy late companion too where will he find. A solace for his deeply wounded mind? And that dear lovely babe, oh! who will share, A mother's tender love, a mother's care? Those bereft parents, how support their grief? In this sffiictive hour, where seek relief? -God is their hope and He will be their stay; Hi gave' and hath a right to take away. May all her friends, her virtues imitate And Elsie's Christiau graces emulate. M e, Angust, 1850. - - C. The Old South Church. This venerable church, now a hundred and twenty years old, is undergoing repairs, for there is nothing, not even Fanuel Hall, or the great tree in the common, whieh Bostonians, (and indeed all New Englanders,) are more careful to preserve, and keep up the historical association with than "The Old South Church." Its antique and quaint architecture is not to be changed, internally or externally : but it is painted and repaired in some places. The fol lowing reminiscences, will be found interesting to tne general reader: This structure was erected in 1730, and du ring the century and a fifth which has since elapsed, it has been memorable for tbe scenes which have been enacted within its walls. The public, religious and patriotic meetings which bave been attended in this bouse, justi fy tbe remark of Snow, in the history of Bos ton, that it is Ine "Sanctuary of freedom." The interior of the edifice remains as it has been since the Revolution. While the British troops were quartered in 1775-6, this sacred temple was desecrated and used as a riding school by tbe English cavalry. To prepare it for this unhallowed purpose, the pulpit pews and western gallery were de molished the ground floor was covered with dirt and gravel a bar was placed west of the Milk street door, for the horses to leap over. The eastern galleries were suffered to remain for tbe accommodation of spectators, and spir ituous liquors were there provided for such as resorted thither to witness tbe feats of horse manship. , During the winter season, a stove was pla ced in the church, in which books and pam phlets from Bev. Mr. Prince's library, which was kept in the tower of the church were used for kindlings. After the Revolutionary war, viz: in 1783, it was solemnly re-dedicated to the worship of Almighty God, by the Rev. Joseph Jickley, pastor of the church. JN. i. Express. Shoes. The little town of Haverhill, in Massachu setts, makes annually 1,200,000 pairs of shoes, worth 700,00Q. The amount paid tor labor in manufacturing them is $250,000. A snug little income to the laboring population of a small town, besides the profits to the neighbor ing farmers in the sale of the hides of the ox en, calves and sheep, and the profits of tan ners and leather dressers in preparing them for use. On which, the Vicksburg Whig says: In stead of working up the hides in Yicksburg and vicinity, we send them to Haverhill, and other places, thousands of miles away, and then bring them back made into shoes, saddles. harness, Arc. We have every facility 8nd ma terial for tanning in our vicinity, cheaper than it can be had in Massachusetts, and yet we know of but one small tan yard in tbe county. Thousands of hides are shipped from bere ev ery year, and thousands more are left to rot for the want of a home market Result in Vermont.
