There Is a spot on earth supremely blest,
A dearer, sweeter far than all tho rest
Where man, creation's tyrant, casts aside
His sword and sceptre, pageantry and pride,
While in his softened look benignly blend,
Tho 6irc, the son, the husband, father, friend,
Hero Woman reigns the mother, daughter, wife,
Strews with fresh flowers the narrow way of life ;
In the clear heaven of her delightful eye,
An angel guard of loves and graces lio ;
Around her knees domestic duties meet,
And fireside pleasures gambol at her feet.
Where shall that land, that spot on earth bo
Art thou a man ? a patriot 1 look around
Oh, thou shalt find, where'er thy footsteps roam,
Thailand thy country, that spot thy home.
HOPE AND MEMORY.
A baby lay in its cradle. A being with bright
hair, and a clear eye, camo and kissed it. lier
name was Hope. Its nurse denied it a toy, for
which it cried, but Hope told it of one in storo
for it to-morrow. Its little sister gave it a flow
er, at which it clapped its hands joyfully, and
Hope promised it fair ones that itshould gather
The baby grew to be a boy. He wa3 musing
in tho 6ummer twilight. Another being with a
6weet and serious face, came and sat besido him.
Her nauio was Memory, and she said," Look be
hind thee, and tell mo what thou seest."
The boy answered, " I see a short path, bor
dered with flowers. Butterflies spread out gay
wings there, and birds sing among the shrubs.
It seems to bo the path where my Teet have
walked, for at the beginning of it was my own
" What art thou holding in thy hand?" asked
Memory. And he answered, " A book which
mother gavo me. " Come hither, said Memo-
ry, with a gentle voice, " and 1 will teach thee
how to get honey out of it that shall be sweet
when thy hair is grey."
Ihe boy became a youth. Once as he lay in
the bed, Hope and Memory came to the pillow.
Hope 6ang a merry song, like the lark when she
rises from her nest to the skies. Afterward,
she said, " Follow me, and thou shah have mu
sic in thy heart, as sweet as the lay I sung to
But Memory said, " Ho shall be mine also."
Hope said " Why need wo contend For as he
kcepcth virtue in his heart, we will be to him as
sisters, all his life long." So ho embraced
Iloro and Memorv and was beloved of them
When ho awoke they blessed him, and he
gave a hand to each. He became a man and
girded him every morning for his labor, nnd ev
ery night he supped at the table of Memory
with Knowledge for their guest.
At length ago founa the manand turned his
temples white. So dim his eye, it seemed that
the world was an altered place. But it was he
himself that had changed, and the warm blood
had grown cold in his veins.
Memory looked on him with grave and ten
der eyes, like a loving and long tried friend.
She sat down on his elbow chair, and he said to
her, "Thou hast not kept faithfully some of the
jewels that I entrusted to thee; I fear they are
She answered mournfully and meeklv: "it
may be so. The lock of my casket is worn.
Sometimes I am weary, and fall asleep. Then

vest me wnen lite was new. 6ee! I have lost
none pf them. Tney aro as brilliant as when
they came into my hands."
Memory looked pitifully on him as she ceased
to speak, wishing to be forgiven. But Hope be
gan to unfold aradient wing which she had long
worn concealed beneath her robe, and daily tried
its strength in a hearenward flight.
Ihe old man lay down to die. And as the
soul went forth from the body, the ongels took
it. Memory ascended by its side and went
through tho open gate of,' heaven. There she
expired, like a rose faintly giving forth its last

Camhior Producing Insanity. The Toron
to Colonist says:
" Wo are informed that no less than eight
persons have been admitted into the Lunatic
Asylum in a state of insanity, occasioned by
consuming quantities of camphor to prevent
cnoiera. some oi uiera carried it about in
their pockets, and kept from time to time eat
ing small quantities of it. Others took it dis.
solved in brandy. In all cases where it was
taken in any quantity, it produced insanity. It
is a fact well known that a comparatively small
quantity of camphor will set a dog mad, and that

" THE CRIMEA.
The Crimea is spoken of in some of the Eng
lish papers as one of the " material guarantees"
which the Allies should extract from Russia as
the price of peace, or as a security for the future
good behavior of that Power; and as it is high
ly probable that the active operations of the Al
lies will ultimately be transferred to that Prov
ince a brief account thereof may not bo without
Tho Crimea, or Crim Tartary as it is some
times called, is the ancient Taurica Chersone
sus. It is a peninsula extending out into tho
Black Sea from Southern Russia, with which it
is connected by a narrow isthmus. There is
probably no province in Europe which has been
the theatre of such stormy scenes of violence
and bloodshed, as this unfortunate country. It
is said that since the time of Hcroditus, (B. C.
458,) it has been conquered and devastated by
more than seventy different nations. The Alans,
the Goths, tho Huns, the Petchengues, the Co
manes, and numerous other predatory tribes in
turn occupied the country. It was settled by
the Genoese in 1193, who were expelled by the
Crim Tartars under a grandson of Ghengis
Khan, in 1474. These predatory hordes settled
in the country, and were tributary to the Porte
until tho latter part of the last century, when
Catherine II. took possession of and annexed
the country to Russia.
Tho population of tho Crimea is about two
hundred thousand, of whom not far from one
half are Tartars, who profess the Mahommedan
The greatest obstacles which the Allies would
encounter in wresting tho Crimea from Russia,
would bo the reduction of Sevastopol. The
strength of this fortress is well known, and it
would doubtless successfully resist any attack
by sea. There would be no difficulty, howev
er, in landing any number of men to tho south
of the town, where there are no less than six
convenient bays, which are unprotected. " The
roads across the Crimea are wretched, and du
ring eight months of the year, in spring, fall and
winter, the dreary steppes in tho northern part
of the province are almost impassable for large
bodies of troops.
The reduction of Sevastopol, if the Allies
should set about it with zeal and energy,
would be only tho work of time. Invested by
land and blockaded by sea, the garrison would
not long hold out without a strong prospect of
relief. Sevastopol taken, the subjugatiou of
the Lriraea would be an easy task ; and in such
an eventuality the Allies, if they are fully deter
mined to cripple Russia, will probably restore
the Porte to the possession of its ancient terri
tory. Boston Journal.

N. Y. Tribune.
Nebraska. We clip tho following from the
National Democrat, published at Washington:
" Nebraska will soon bo a territory ia fact,
as well as in name. Mr. Burt, tho new Gover
nor, is now in this city, and is hurrying his ar
rangements to get away, in order to organize the
territorial government by the first of October.
He had an interview yesterday with the l'resi
dent, relative to the policy to be pursued in the
.l V f t .1- A
administration oi me anairs oi me new icrruo
ry. Nothing will bo dono to arouse tho pecul
iar prejudices of the North. Indeed, Mr. Burt
takes bul ono slave with him, (an old servant
woman,) and she will be liberated on her arri
val there, and her free papers deposited with
the Secretary of tho Territory. Mr. B. goes
out with tho intention of making Nebraska his
permanent home, end I predict for him a brill
lant career in tho far west. No appropriations
having been mado tor the erection of public
buildings in tho Territory, the Governor will
erect for himself a tent, under which to hold
his council. Perhaps his red brethren will bo
hospitable and invite him to their council Arcs."
A Curiosity. We had in our office tho oth
cr day a piece of ice with a number of wheat
sprouts crowinf? out of it. an inch in height
Tho kernels were imbedded an inch below the
surface, and firmly frozen, while tho snrouts had
forced their way out. They were probably
caught from floating straws, and consigned to
their icy prison. We could almost envy them
meir cooi position some ot theso hot days.

Fidelity of a Dog. A merderous assault
was made on the person of an unoffending
German, named Ernest Kaiser, on Monday
evening last. He had been to Chasca for tho
purpose of looking nt some timber, and having
been carried across the river by a friend, ho star
ted for Shakopee. Not knowing much about
the counrty, he could not find the road, and
meeting three men, he inquired of them tho
way to this place. They agreed to show him .
the road, and carried him some distance up tho
river. His suspicions being excited, he refused
to go further, when he was struck across tho
head with a gun and felled to the . earth. Ho
was then beaten with the gun until he became
senseless, then robed of a gold watch and
thrown into the river.
The water revived him, and when restored
to consciousness he found one of his dogs hold
ing him by the bosom of his shirt and endeavor
ing to drag him ashoro. By his assistance
ho gaind the land, when he was again seized
unon bv the miscreants and burled into tho
river. His dog again came to his assistance,
and helped to support him on tho water. At
this time the steamer ulobo camo along, and
the attention of tho crew being attracted by tho
barking of a small dog upon the shore, they
found tho man nearly exhausted, but still held
above the water by his faithful dog; his body
and limbs covered with bruises from the blows
which the villains inflicted upon him.
Yesterday afternoon our citizens searched
tho country in the vicinity of the place whero
tho act was committed, but no trace of tho per
petrators of the deed havo been discovered.
An Incident op Indian Warfare. Wo
heard of an incident connected with the late bat
tlo between the Chippewas and Sioux, an ac
count of which we published yesterday, highly
illustrative of Indian character. The Sioux, du
ring the fight, it appears were entrenched be
hind ramparts and from their place of safety
fired upon their enemies, doing great execution.
One Sioux warrior, however, disdained tho pro
tection afforded the rest by the defences, and
stood upon the rampart in full view, loading
and discharging his rifle with as much coolness
as though he was smoking the calumet of peace.
Many wero the attempts made to pick him off,
but at each unsuccessful effort, his defiant war
cry rang o'er tho plain.
Finally, Hole-in-the-Day, the chief of the at
tacking force, admiring the undaunted bravery
of tho warrior, approached as near him as ho
could, and taking tho chaplet of eagle's feathers
from his own great head, tossed it to him, as
much as to say that for his heroism he deserved
to bo a chief.
Teaching .'em to Swim. A wise and obser
ving author says setting a young man afloat
with money left him by hi relatives is liko
tying bladers under the arms of one who cannot
swim ; ten chances to ono he will loose his blad
ders and go to the bottom. Teach him to swim
and ho will never need tho bladders. Givo
your child a sound education, and you havo
dono enough for him. See to it that his mor
als are pure, his mind cultivated, and his wholo
nature made subservient to tho laws which
govern man, and you havo given what will q
of more value than the wealth of the Indies.
What it Cost to Stop the Pater. Ono
of our subscribers stoped his paper for six
months, last year, becauso we advertised so
much. In the mean time his farm was adver
tised for non-payment of taxes, and sold. On
discovering the difficulty, it cost him ono or
two days travel with horse and buggy, and ten
per cent of tho taxes to say nothing of tho
vexation to redeem it. How much did ho
rrain bv stoDoinf? his rjancr ? He came back
and subscribed again. TOgs. Sentinel.
In 1650. a trial took nlaco in Conncticut un
der tho section of the Blue Laws prohibiting

Jacob Newlics. It appears that Sarah dropped
her cloves and Jacob found them. When Sarah
asked for them, Jacob demanded a kiss for his
pay, and as tho demand did not seem extrava

clearly proved, and tho parties were each fined
