I ara now alone the loft air of summei breathes iD at the open casement It is : tell-tale air, for it whispers of voices longsinot hushed in silence, and speaks of triendsluj , forever broken. The sunshine sleeps upoi 1 .1. a i: .1... 11 .... mo uoor, iic&iiiii in me buvch i'sia "i I the carpet. It does not dance gladly now, as in youthful hours. No wonder; it too, is dienmino-of youthful duvs. Those days w hen it played laughingly in j ringlets of ehining hair, aiinceu witn luirj foot-steps on the old play-ground, or played at ludi-Miid-seek with one little bright form. I am silting in an arm-chair beside my desk : an open bouk is before me, between the 25 ! 1 eaves of which l.es a boquet of pressed and faded flowers; so like to faded hope are they. but although the book is before, yet I am not reading. My eyes are fixed upon vacancy, and my heart is wandering back amid the paths of childhood, when the flowers were flesh and blooming, ere death came stealing through life's bowers and left his fool-prints there. Oh! for that land of flowers which 1 have left behind me, with its little joys and little sorrows! Where can I again tind that Eden of my bouI? And why, oh, why did my guardian spirits drive me hence, when my only sin was,' that I was no longer a child ! 1 am at the old honirslead again, wander ing in the woods with Blanche, pulling wild flowers, and drinking of the little spring stream that gushes from the rock. It is an autumn day, a golden-veiled, suli-bieailiin utumn day; a day of the heart; one that childhood can remember so well. How plea sant is the low music of the leaves as they rustic beneath our footsteps, and how merrv is the sound of the stream as it Hurdles and ripples in among the fluwers, ns it' the willful water-spmt was singing a strange melody to itself. The brown leaves that float in the air, dun ciner and waltzing with the breeze in a world of delight, w hilst the sunshine, streaming up on tliem, brightens the mingling colors ol crimson and brown. Blanche savs they are wild little elves; and trulv they look like as- many tame?, each in their dillerent dress. charming away the day houis. . 1 lie shadows lie long and daik beneath the elms, anil the sun makes golden bars on the glass, and lays golden kisses upon the glowing lips of every flower. The flowers alas! for the beautiful flowers there are but few of them now. . Spring stole many of them when she left (he earth. Some of her pel buds. Summer chose some of her fairest and blooming ones. when she passed away, to strew over her grave, four, beloved Autumn coim-in in a faded dress, a few brown leaves adorning her dark tresses, and enrrieth the flowers that pring and Summer left behind. And though they are not the lovliost of flowers, still they are childish flowers, and we love them. Blanche and 1 aie sitting upon the grass in the shade, weaving uariands of crimson leaves, flowers and fern. Blanche is my dearest friend, and I love her brown, slu ing ringlets, "her sweet, smiling face, and reamy blue eyes. We are talking of my dear little sister Lulu, lion) we had left at borne because she was ill, and could not come with us; an J we say she will smile and put out her little dimpled and when we bring the wreaths we have made for her, ....... The air whispers in the leaves, and the owera droop because the sun is withdrawing her kisses from them. The water-spirit mur murs sadly, and the leaves dance more gaily, because it is almost eveniug. Blanche savs, Let us go home,' and we leave the beautiful woods and walk slowly toward the homestead we part with an embrace, and 1 steal into my mother s room to delight Lulu with the last flowers of the season. Sw eet sister, they are indeed the last of earth's flowers that ever bloomed for her. ,Oh, sisterly love! to what can it be liken ed? No one can describe it; no tongue can utter its true value. How holy is the ever bubbling, overflowing love w hich resteth in one sister's heart fur an other. An angel hath unfolded its dark wings over our dwelling. It is the angel of Death. Voices spenk low ; footsteps are noiseless. The curtuins are closed,-to shut out the glad sunshine, w hich is no longer beautiful to the eye. I steal from my own room to the dark ened parlor. The little coffin is there so dark, so terrible! I lift the white covering from the still whiter face beneath. The blue eyes are closed, and the silken lashes rest like threads of gold upon that waxen cheek. The long, fair curls are still now; no breath disturbs their slumbers. A wreath of snowy buds encii cle them, so like the pure soul ol the departed one. The dimpled hands are cold, and lie burned in the lloweis, which my mother has placed over them. I stoop to kiss those beautiful lips, but Death has been there before me, and led his icy breath upon them. I have taken my last kiss; 1 have clipped off a tress of that beautiful hair .and creep from the dark room alone but shed no tear! I stop to listen if she is calling to me. No, v is but the echo of my own footsteps. She never will speak more. - I hasten through the sitting room. My mother and Lulu aie not there. My font strikes something, which falls with a Jow, mournful sound., f t is Lulu's little eradle, and the doll hag fallen Xrora its bed. The tears now gush from- my eyes; ! press these childish playthings to my heart, and hasten to my room. There are no clouds in the sky. All is strene, azure hue. It is day, bright, beauti ful, heavenly dav day without, but night within. There is a hushed and heavv stillness lingeiing in the air, and even the trees bend their luxurious branches, as if in devoliun. whilst the gleaming winged sunshine hovers over them, A bird flies through the air, with rustling pinions. Its plumage is snow white, and il seems like the spirit of the loved and lost one winging its flight to heaven. There Is silence above, and silence below, and my lieart is crying through the stillness Lulu! Lulu but no 'voice nnswereth that mournful call. Does the sunshine hear il"? Then why does its radiance become still beautiful? Do the' clouds bear it? why do they linger in the sky, so Jrre, so Jairy-like 7 morar Is my heart dreaming? Does it dream that Lulu is dead ? Dbes it dream that she lies so cold and still in among the flowers be neath the willow ? Oh, if it is a dream, then may I slumber as she slumbers a dreamless slumber. Shall I go down to the meadow md sit beside the little mound and sing to vt the song she used to lore " No, no. The brook is singing to her an unceasing, nurmuring song, as she lies sleeping. It tells of-faded hope and sad rememberances. It whispers of whithered joys, aifd the ashes of formei love-ties which lie buried forever there. My fondest hopes perished when her holy spiiit passed away. The relentless hand of death has plucked the fairest flower from my garden ol lite. Oh sistsrs! beware, lest by a thoughtless woid or action, the cherished 'silver cord be loosened' that bindeth thy hearts together, lest the 'golden bowl be broken that holdeth thy love in one. i hese childish memories have woven a chain of sadness around my spiiit The book has fallen from the desk, and the leaves and flowers lie crushed upon the floor. On brown leaf alone lies unbroken in the sun shine. It is an emblem of myself alone and sad, when all nrounil is bright and gay. Is my heart dreaming again? Yes, it is dreaming now; dreaming of that beautiful, starry laud, where Lulu is sleeping quietly. ' ' ,0 The First View of Jerusalem. Bayard Taylor, in his last letter publish ed in the New York Tribune, gives the fol lowing account of his first impression of the Hoiy city : But when I climbed the last ridge, and looked ahead with a Sort of painful suspense. Jerusalem did not appear. We were '2,000 feet above the Alediterianean, whose blue we could distinctly see far to the west, through notches iu the chain of hills. To llienoilli, the mountains were gray, desolate and awful. Not a shrub or tree relieved their frightful bartnness. An upland tract, covered with white volcanie rock, lay before us. We met peasants with asses, who looked, (to my eyes) as ifihey had just left Jerusalem. Still for vfiird we urged our horses, and reached a ruined garden, sui rounded with hedge of cac tus, over'which 1 saw domes and walls in the distance. I drew a long breath and looked at Francois. He was jogying along without turning his bead; he could not have been so indifferent if that was really the ciiy. Pre sently we reached another slight lise in the rocky plain. He began to urge his panting horse, and at the same instant we both lash ed the spirit into ours, dashed on at a break neck gallup, round the corner of an old wall on the top of the hill, and lo! the Holy City! Uur lireck jerked both pistols from bis ho'sters, and lired them into the air, us reined up on the steep. t rum the description of travelers, I had expected to see in Jerusalem an ordinary modern Turkish town ; but that before me, with its wall, lortresses and domes, was il not still the City of David ? I saw the Jeru salem of the New Testament, I had ima gined it. umg lines ot walls crowned with a notched parapet, and strengthened by tow ers few domes and spires above them; clusters of cypress here and there; ihis was all that was visible of the city. Oa either side the soil slope down to two deep valleys over which it hangs. On the i ast, the Mount of O lives crowned with a chapel and mosque, rose high and sleep, but . directly over that ciiy, the si(rht fell far away upon the lofly mountains of Moub. beyond the Dead ISea. The scene was grand in its simplicity. The prominent colors were the purple of those distant mountains, and the hoary gray of the nearer hills. The walls were of the dull yel low of weather stained marble, and the only trees the dark cypress and moonlit olive. aince we arrived, t nave looued down upon the city from the Mount of Olives, and up to it from the valley of Jehosaphat; but 1 can not restore the illusions of the first view. We allowed our horses to walk slowly down the remaining half mile to the Jaffa gate. An Englishman, wilh a red silk shawl over his head was sketching the city, while an held an umbrella over him. Inside the gate we stumbled upon an Italian shop wilh an Italian sign, and after threading a number ol intricate passages under dark archways, and being turned off from one hotel w hich wns full of travelers, reached another, kept by a converted Herman Jew, w here we found Dr. Robinson and Ely Smith, w':o both arrived yesterday. It sounds strange to talk of a hotel ill Jerusalem, but the world is progres- sintr, aud there are already three. IIOttE. Be it weakness, il deserves some praise to ive the home of our early days. What fond and tender associations does that one word awaken in the heart. There is no place like home: no, be it ever so humble, it is still home. It is the scene of our child ish sports or innocent joys; and when we are awav, our thoughts wander back to childhood's sunny hours, and to the home of our early youth, where we were blest with the kind advice of a rather, and tue gentle and southing words of a Mother. We may unkind words and looks given us; the passing ut ,,ur days may be painful; our paths, may be joujed vvith sorrow and care, yet when the metnry hoVers ovt,r ,), pHStj there is no place upon vull it (,.ij,;,ls to linger, as the loved scenes ot childhood. Why rests so deep a shade of a.inoss on the brow of that lovely girl.- She isau r. phan. olie, too, had a home, but that home is now forsaken : some of that circle are now sleeping in the cold ami silent tomb. Thus it is we are deprived of the friends we most love and cherish. If it is so pleasant to have a home here on earth, how much more delight ful it will be to have a home in Heaven. Some people think they would rather be at any place else lnn at home. But 1 ima gine a trial of sepetation would lead thm lo think differently, foryhere we are always sure of a welcome fram kind friends. I have often heard il said that the three most beautiful words iu the English language are Mother, Home and Ueaven. A home would not bejjme without a mother, and who does notrig fur ft home in Heaven. Theodore Hook says of railroads and steam boats "They annhiiate space and time, not to mention a multitude of passengers. Increased average duration of Life. Professor Buchanan, in an interesting lect ura before the Mechanics' Institute of Cin cinnati, makes the following observations upon the average duration of life, the effect in part of the medical sciejjee. He says that in the early part of the Sixteenth century, one-half of all that were born, died under five years of age and the average longevity of the whole population was but eighteen years. In the seventeenth cenlnry one-halfof the population died under twelve. But in the first sixty years of the eighteenth century, one-half of the population lived over twenty-seven years. In the latter forty years, one-half exceeded thiriy-two years of age. At the beginning of , the present century one-half exceeded forty three. The average longevity of these suc cessive periods has been increased from 18 years in the sixteenth century up to 43.7 by our last reports. Tliese facts are derived from he medical statistics of Geneva. Applied to this country, such an improvement as is here exhibited from 150 J to 184o, would make a variation in our bills of mortality of more than one-half a million, or 1,500 deaths daily. Politkess I ?r Dusking An old gentle man had owed a firm for years; at last, after everybody's patience and temper were exhausted, a clerk named Frank undertook to get the money. Frank called upon the gentleman, and met with a polite reception, and the usual answer. with the addition, "You need not troubie yourself, young man, about the matter; I will make it all right ." O, no," replied t rank, I could not think for a moment of compelling foil to call at the store for a few dollars. It will not be the slightest inconvenience for me to stop in, as I pass vour place of business six times a dav. to j and from my meals, and I can call every time I go by. "Here," said the old fellow to his book- Uteeper, alarmed at the ' prospect of being dunned six times a day for .the next six months "pay this impertinent rascal. He can beat me in politness, and if he wants a situation, I will give him two thousand dol lars a year." ' A gentleman was railing,a few days since, at a public table, against I he law of Massachusetts, as depriving men-of their natural right lo buy and sell, and get ,;nin; and turning to his neighbor asked him if he did not think it high handed oppression. The gentleman replied : "Sir, call it oppression, if you please. I will slato one fact well known to myself. A tax bill was recently brought to me on my city property, of $800, for which I gave my check. I carefully looked into the subject, and found that $650 of it was for the support of drunk- entless. iow, wnal is tnis out opprej-sion But I suppose I have no rights. Rumselh-rs have all. They "nay tax me to Btipport crim inals and drunkards they make, f(550, and I must be still." "Sir," said the gentleman, "Massachusetts is right It is the hest argu ment I ever beard. It has overthrown all my theory about free Uade. I will say no more, but go the whole witlyou." Dayton and Michioan Railroad. We learn that eleven miles of this road from Day ton north. are completed, and the track is being laid at the rate of a half mile a rlaj. It is ex pected with .nnch certainty tWat the work will be carried to Troy by the first day of the new year, when the cars will at once com mence running to that point, under a:i ar rangement with the Cincinati, Hamilton and Davtnn company. North of Tmy thrpe mutes have been sur veyed, but the location has not yet been per manently made. It is thought, bowever. thai this preliminary will be disposed of and the work to Toledo be let between now and Christmas. , ZSfThere is a difference among Democrats some will tell the truth after the election. Thus Senator Benton, in speaking of the ex pentiture of sixty millions by the Whig Ad ministration, says. Let me do justice. Party warfare throws the blame of these sixty millions on the pre sent Whig Administration. Inexorable his tory will have to qualify that reproach, and to tell that Democratic mijorilies were in both houses of Congress when lhat nppaling sum was voted! And further, that it would have been seventy instead of sixty millions, if the "lower" House (as it is called) ha l s tnetion- ed all the appropriations voted in the upper." E3rSince "Cabinet" making is llie order of the day, we submit the followiug; Secretary of State Major Jack Downing, of Maine. Secretary of Treasury Parson Brownlow of lennessee. Secretary of Navy Mrs. Partington, of the Boston Post. Secretary of War Mrs. Bloomer of N. Y. Later from Bennos Ay res. By an arrival at Baltimore on the 10th ad vices have been received from Buenos Ayres to the 6th October. Urquisa has disbanded his forces and disclaimed all further intention toward Buenos Ayres. He says he will defend his province from all aggression, however. In a circular to the foreign Consuls, he noti fies them to treat with bim in all matters re lating to foreign affairs, and announces his intention, as dictator, to install a sovereign Congress.

We have given a tolerably full and accurate report of its proceedings. The new members of the Board, so far as we know, and hear are of energy, experience and character; and we have the utmost confidence that the affairs of the association will be managed with skill and discretion. The past year has been of great prosperity to the Society. The Cleveland Fair was eminently succesful in ever depart ment, and especially so in a financial view. We learn that from eight to ten thousand dol lars are in the Treasury, beside certain as sets of some value. This is very encourag ing, and will stimulate to increased efforts to promote the great cause of Agriculture in Ohio. The citizens of Dayton are moving to se cure the next State Fair at that place. The delegate from Montgomery country pledged the $3,000 on the part of the people, and, from the spirit and liberality that characterize them in all their enterprises, we have nodoubt the pledge will be promptly redeemed, and the next annual State Fair will be held in that flourishing city. - X he deliberations of the Convention were harmonioustftnd in the right spirit. Some im portant resolution were proposed, which we hall take' occassion to refer to hereafter Altogether, this Anuual Session was a very propitious ire, id demonstrates that the great interest of Agriculture have an abi ding place in the thought and regards of the people of this first agricultural State of the Union.
